KANSAS CITY, May 13.—The Stars Topeka special says: The Kansas river rose three feet between 8 o'clock last night and 8 o'clock this morning. At 11 o'clock this morning it was rising at the rate of one and three-tenths inches per hour. The Russian colony on the north side of town has been forced to leave for higher ground and their entire possessions are under water. The river is within a foot of being as high as it has ever been since 1358, when it carried the bridge away at this place. The Union Pacific bridges at Perryville and llossville are said to be in danger. Great fears of damage from an overflow are entertained here. Heavy rains have prevailed all the week and still continue. The Star's Lawrence, Kan., special says: The river has risen two feet in the last eighteen hours. It is now ten feet above the dam, a point not reached sinco 1878. No serious damage has yet been done, but a few inches more will be disastrous. The Union Pacific tracks at North Lawrence are under water and traffic is delayed. The Star's Fort Scott, Kan., special says; A heavy, almost constant, rain bus fallen since 8 o'clock yesterday morning. Streams are all swollen and rapidly rising. Much damage to crops on low farm lands is inevitable. The Mannaton is out of her bands and it is feared the resident portion of the north side of the city will be submerged. Floods ut Kansas City. KANSAS Cirr, May 13.—The Missouri river this morning marks u stage of water nine-tenths of a foot above the danger line, which is twenty-one feet. The water now stands 21.0 feet above the low water mark and is risingstead- ly. The signal service reports yesterday's rainstorm, which amounted almost to a deluge here, was fully as se vere all along the Missouri river to the northern Missouri river line and far above that. It is expected, therefore, that the volume of water in the channel will increase for the next twenty- four hours at least. Harlem, a small town across the river from Kansas City, is flooded. The signal service gave a timely warning of the flood, and every family, the location of whose house was in a dangerous position moved to higher and safer ground. Some did not have time to remove their household goods, and they will suffer some loss. The packing house of the Pluenix Packing company, in Kansas City, Kansas, has several feet of water in tlie lower floor and other establishments of manufacturing concerns are Hooded, necessitating a suspension of their business. Ar- mourdale, on the banks of the Kaw river, which is also at flood tide, is under water in its lower parts and many families have been driven from their homes. GENERAL NEWS.

The resolution was vigorously applauded by the galleries. It was referred to the committee on the state of the church.

Finally it was referred to the committee on judiciary. Memorial services occupied the rest of the session. Methodist Protestants. WKST.MINSTHII, Md., May 13.—The general conference of the Methodist Protestant church convened here today. Among the important questions to be discussed are the admission of women delegates, the organization of adenomu ational young people's union and alterations of the ritual. The denomination was organized in 1828 by a secession from the Mothodist Episcopal church over the question of lay representation. It now numbers one thousand ministers and three hundred thousand members. The Rev. W. L. Bates, chairman of the committee on the revision of the articles of belief, states that this subject will be the principal one that will come up before tho conference, but he doubts whether any revision will take place. The committee recommends changes in certain articles of belief largely modelled after tho Westminster Confession, and the revision therefore partakes of the same nature as the movement now going on In the I'resbyterian church. .

An interesting study for statisticians is afforded in tlie fact that from the beginning to the end of the performances of Sinbad it has been witnessed by audiences aggregating the extraordinary total of 800,000 people, or 1 per cent, of the entire population of the country, and these same people have turned into the box offices of the different theatres where it has been produced a total of over a million and a quarter of dollars.
