JTarm Lands Converted Into L»kat by the Overflow of Stream*—Many Cattle Drowned in Oklahoma —Situation In the Mi««is«ippl ViUtey. KANSAS CITY, May 9. — The past twenty-four hours have furnished the climax for all the rainy weather this spring. A heavy downpour of water has been falling BO that the already soaked ground haa been giving off the water into the swollen creeks and streams. The result is that accounts have been coming in from all over Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas telling of flooded rivers. In some localities the towns have been flooded and some damage is reported to dwellings by having their foundations washed out. The flood came so suddenly in other districts that the farmers had no time to prepare for it and much of their stock haa been drowned and washed away. Growing crops have been badly damaged and thousands of fields TVlll Have to Be Replanted. In Saline county, Mo., all the streams are reported out of their banks and the whole county has been turned in a lake. Some houses have been washed away and much stock has been lost. Along the Platte river and the One Hundred and Two river the whole country has been inundated and houses and barns have been destroyed. In Livingston, Grundy and Mercer couuties the Grand river and its forks have flooded th$ whole country, and the district from Chillicothe to the Iowa line is one sea of water. All the crops have been washed out for miles throughout the Grand river valley and much stock has been lost. All the railroads in the district have been more or leas damaged and traffic is greatly delayed, and in some cases has been abandoned altogether. The "Wabash bridge here has been strained out of line so that no trains can pass over. CATTLE DROWNED. A Cloudburst In Oklahoma Doe» Immense Damage. GUTHRIE, O. T., May 9.—The heaviest rainfall for years has fallen steadily for twenty-eight hours. East of Orlando a cloud burst, causing the streams to rise six feet in a few minutes, drowning many cattle. At Oklahoma City the lower part of the town is flooded and much damage is done. There are several bad washouts on the railway and in the country. So many bridges are washed away 'that the mail routes are abandoned. Near Stillwater three houses and many barns were destroyed. John Crockett was fatally injured and some stock was killed. FATAL TO FOUR. the A Freight Train Precipitated Into Tennnsaen Klver. NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 9.—The bridge across the Tennessee river at Florence fell, precipitating a freight train sixty feet into the water. The fireman was killed and the engineer and two brakemen fatally hurt. Dtkeg Gave Way. PEOBIA, His., May 9.—The great marsh dike fifteen miles long and protecting a strip of bottom land about two miles wide, gave way at a point opposite Pekin during the night. The crevasse is about 600 feet wide and increases rapidly, as the Illinois river has now reached a stag« not exceeded since 1844. There are about eighteen families living in the bottom, but the greater portion have removed. There is a good deal of live stock still in the bottom. It is feared that in a few hours all this vast tract will be on a level with the river. One Va»t Ruiblng Sea. NEW OELKANS,- May 9.—The Mississippi is one vast rushing sea. The levees through thij state and Mississippi are being thoroughly guarded and every precaution has been taken against crevasses. At Greenviile the river is higher than ever before known, and is still ris- iag. Patrols have been organized to watch the levees. The marine sectional dock has been wrecked by the flood. NOT OFFICAIL. Some Donbt Regarding the Pope's De- cl«ion ou the School Question. ST. PAUL, May U.—In regard to the telegram from New York, claiming that Archbishop Corrigan had received a cablegram from Rome to the effect that the Faribault school system had been condemned, Rev. Father Con way, editor of The Northwestern Chronicle, the Catholic organ of the state, and himself a close personal friend of Archbishop Ireland, saye: "I do not place any reliance oa the correctness of the information. If such news was to be communicated officially to the United States it would be sent to Cardinal Gibbous and not to Archbishop Corrigan. Beside, we have information from Rome to the effect that the school question had been decided, and that it has been decided ^u exactly an opposite manner from that indicated in the cablegram to Archbishop Corrigau. No, the cablegram to New York cannot be official." Ripaas Tabules cure hives. INTO A DEEP RAVINE, HORRIBLE ACCIDENT ON THE SANTA FE, NEAR MEDILL, MO. An Entire Train GOB.

The train was running at an ordinary rate of speed when it reached the trestle bridge near Revere at 1 a. m. The engine had reached the east end of the bridge when the structure tottered and fell, piling the cars and coaches in a heap thirty-six feet below. The wrecked train consisted of one Pullman sleeper, one tourist sleeper, chair car, passenger coach and baggage car. As soon as possible the train crew hastened to the assistance of the imprisoned passengers and did everything in their power to rescue them from death by drowning or from the crushed and broken timbers. A relief party left Fort Madison, la., at 8 o'clock, but was delayed by a washout ten miles west of the wreck and did not reach the scene of the disaster till after daylight. About 2:40 p. m. the train returned to Fort Madison and the injured were conveyed in ambulances and carriages to the Santa Fe hospital. Many of the women were weeping and almost all bore frightful wounds made by falling against car seats and broken windows. FIRE AT NEW YORK. Irumnnge Slaughter Hotuet Go Up In Smoke.
