The latter are Jierefore arranging to collect a §1,000,300 defense fund by May 1. For six weeks prior to that date it is calculated that 500,000 of the 600,000 members of ,hc Federation of Labor will con- ;ribute ten cents each per week, mak- .ng 8300,000 from that source. The sev- :ral miners' organizations already have over §200,000 for their fund, and will swell the total before the battle begins to approximate a million. There are 75,000 miners already organized, and the others will join in anticipation of the struggle. SLAIN BY TRAMPS.

Y., on Wapping creek, has been broken, adding tho water of a large pond to the already swollen stream.

Five minutes after the signal was sounded the gate-house was twisted around by a large body of pack ice, and this movement was closely followed by the giving away of a section of the dam three feet in depth and about 800 feet in Length. Just before the dam gave way the gauge showed seven feet ten inches of water going over the dam. The gong continued to sound and the people rushed from their houses; amid great excitement. The immense volume of water rushed down the river and the paper-mill and Albert Daggett's postal- card factory were the heaviest losers. Two hundred feet of the Housatonic railroad trestle was carried away at the same spot as in last week's flood. A pile-driver was swept down tho river and two men had to jump to save themselves. There is now four feet of water on the Derby railroad tracks and trains have stopped running. A number of factories will be compelled to close.
