Brim—Very Few Trains llunnlng Kast—Cambridge, F*., In banger of Being Cut dtr From MM Outside World, CLEVELAND, May l&—The condition of affairs in the Cuyahoga river valley is not encouraging. At midnight Itfst bight the rain waa 'still failing and there has been a continuous downpour now for 56 hours\ without a particle ol cessation. Everything in the nature oi a creek, river,-ditch or sewer is filled to the brim and it IB'"beginning- to .be ft serious problem'-: to 4 kriow what will become of :the BUT- face water. The bridges from one portion of this city to another will be covered with water in a few hours if the tain does not cease. It is said ^hat some of them will be washed out Center street is flooded to the depth of three feet-and the water is filling the cellars of the wholesale houses and the damage will be great. Merchants are working to move their .goods to a place of safety; The water is rising so fast Jffifct they will not save very much. In thfc country there is nothingjeft in the way of communication. Telegramrthat have been received in this citysay that all the bridges on Full line roads are washed out and in brant's. , the railroad bridges are down, leveland is cut off fromall communication with everybody except the people on the west. No trains are .running on the Lake Shore east and no one seems to know when there will be any. The Lake Shorn has experienced more washouts in thalaat two days than it generally has in» year. The Erie is badly washed out and the valley is literally submerged. The world's fair train on the Valley is in two feet of water. , Along the river front there is much gloom and depression.. The drowning of jtbe members of the livesaving crew has saddened the sailors who knew most of the men well. There are few vessels in the river and none are leaving or arriving, . f The lake is a mass of turbulent waves and the seas are higher than they have been for years, The storm center is a long way from Cleveland but from gome cause this city seems to be getting the worst of it. The Nickleplate u said to have experienced a fresh washout near Brie yesterday and if this is the case it will be a week or 10 days • before traffic will be resumed over that line. The storm is the worst at this eeason of the year than has ever been known here. There has been high water before, but not at so late a period. At Ashtabula. At Ashtabula the water formed a lake of 20 acres near the Pittsburg, Youngs-/ town and Ashtabula depot. All three -Toads, across the gorge near the city are blocked. The spile bridge is .disabled to that 1.8 engines and 400 men are ont 1 of work on the Lake Shore docks. The Cuyahoga is out of its banks and the flats 'are flooded. Lumber piles •were swept away, causing a loss' of thousands of dollars. Three women were rescued from a canal boat drifting down with a 10-mile current. The rive? is°ooverd with l»m- berandoil. All fires have been 1 y«t out. r The water* are stall rising, communication is shut ott except by )oat. The hotel is filled with guests, many 'of them waiting to get home. Among them are ji number of Clevfr- and people, The water has filled the toilers, and the hotel can not be heated except by oil stoves. The springhouse, where the'mineral water is obtained,,is flooded, and the guesta are without drinking water unless they use that which bas been spared to. ship away, Fortunately the hotel itself to in no danger owing to the high ground 6n which it stands. - . . 'Should the water continue to rise until night, it is feared the large bridge between town and the hotel will be swept away and ^ a only possible way of reaching .the outer world will-be gone. In this event the guests can not get away until the bridge i$ repaired^ unless they resort to transportation by btfats. Traffic, on the Erie, road, the only road leading through town, is entirely suspended. The tracks are washed away at Saegertown, a "Jew miles west of nere. It, will probably be several days before this is repaired, and until that' time no one can leave or enter town. At THusvllIe, Pa. Titusville is -again visited by a de^ Btructive flood, causing great distress to poor families and entailing great loss of property.
