During the morning a great wave came down the Floyd river which flows through the center of the city, and •which was already swollen bank full. The wave came a few minutes after 7 o'clock. Warning had been sent a short time before to the inhabitants of the lowlands but only a few of them had been notified. The first intimation was a volume of water spreading over the banks to a depth of three feet and throwing a mist of foam before it. In a few minutes the water had risen above first floors and several thousand people fled in terror to the higher ground. The water rose four feet in an hour and a half and from 9 o'clock continued to rise steadily, bxit not so rapidly. Probably one-quarter of the inhabitants live on the low ground which is overflowed. So rapid was the rise of the tide that great numbers were unable to escape and the work of rescue engaged every energy of the people. At 12 o'clock eleven persons Were Reported Drowned and there must be many others. All the boats from the boat houses on the Sioux river have been brought in and are being \ised to save life and property. The Missouri river is very high .and when the flood in the Floyd river struck it the water dammed up and rushed over the adjacent low grounds. The stock yards and packing houses were sittiated at the confluence uf the two rivers and they were instantly inundiit-ed. About 2,000 head of live stock were drowned there. Great numbers of dead stock have also been found floating down the Floyd river. The whole railroad yards and switching track district is under water and there has been immense damage to the round houses and other railroad property. The roundhouse of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha is damaged to the extent of $40,000. That road, the Illinois Central and the Sioux City and Northern enter the city by the Flo'yd valley and all are stopped. Not a train has left Sioux City during the day. At 1 o'clock p. in. the water had reached to Jennings street on Fourth street. It is estimated that 8,000 people have been driven from their homes. All business is suspended. At noon the ladies had several soup and lunch houses opened for the flood sufferers. age has been done the city proper, but at North Little Rock great uneasiness has been felt and considerable damage done. The first heavy loss, that of the caving in of the north banks a few hundred yai IB east of the wagon bridge, has been followed by the collapsing of the Elite Lumber company's mill, valued at 118,000, end of the Cooperage c pany's building. « At Redfield, twenty miles from here, huge blocks of bank have been falling into the river. Standing close to the shore on a section of the bank which thus suddenly melted away, five persons, names unknown, were precipitated in the torrent and drowned, the bodies not being recovered. A report from Redfield at midnight states that in all twenty-five to thirty persons have been drowned there in the last twelve hours. Hamlets Submerged. MACOUTH, Ills., May 23.—£he back water in the Kaskaskia river has reached New Athens and submerged a large number of hamlets and forms.

Seven People Killed and a Dozen Injured on Hie Cotton Kelt. ST. Louis, May 21.—Meager particulars of a collision between a passenger train and freight train, near Crooked Bayou, Ark., on the Cotton Belt road, have reached this city. The collision occurred at 7 o'clock p. m. and was the result of the crew of the passenger traix disobeying orders. All the cars of theP p passenger train were thrown from the\ track and upset.

A Terrible TiO* of Destruction and Dam- ago Told l>y Receding Water*. Sioux CITY, la,, May 20.—The scene which is disclosed by the recession of the flood is one which beggars description.

The list of missing is still large and about 100 people are not accounted for. The flood at its height extended from Court street to the Floyd bluffs and from the suburb of Linn to the Misaouri river. This comprises a district four miles long and a mile and a half wide. For a distance of a mile and a half above the mouth of'the Floyd the bottom is densely populated. A large portion of the inhabitants are poor people who are em- ployes of the packing houses, railroads, etc. There are a great many retail shops throughout this region. At the height of the flood the current struck straight through tlie residence streets. Among those nearest to the river, scores oJ dwellings Were Swept from Foundations and carried long distances and either smashed or turned bottom side up. Macy two-story buildings were swept away. The buildings which are twisted or carried short distances are innumerable. It must be remembered that over all this area for six or eight blocks from the river the water was far above the second story with a swift current and the wind blowing a hurricane. Everywhere fences, outhouses, sidewalks, wooden pavement, railroad ties and timbers and lumber yard debris are scattered about among the contorted and overturned dwellings. The city is the heaviest loser. Sewers, paving, water pipes and curbing must be put in new in a large part of the city. The council has decided to begin the work on an extensive scale at once and employment will be given every laboring man in tbe city. The railroads are unable to do anything yet. The Milwaukee and St. Paul has a line open north, but no other track is open into this city. The Illinois Central and Sioux City and Northern will have to practically rebuild their tracks for twelve to twenty miles in the valley. i HOUSES WASHED AWAY. pressed himself, saying that he .took the demonstration as it was intended, for an insult to the church South.
