DESOLATED BY FLOOD
Hundreds of People Rendered Home
lessRelief Work Going: On Damage
Will Reach S5,000,000 Around Kansas
City The Sioux City Flood.
St. Louis, May 23. When daylight
spread over the submerged districts in
the Mississippi and Missouri valleys
this morning the outlook was more dis
couraging than at any time since the
beginning of the floods. The temporary
fall of the river was checked late last
night and the water is again
rising, with no prospect of
cessation until it reaches the
highest point registered in the last half
centurv. Recent rains in northern
Missouri, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska
have swollen the flood in the Missouri
river and that stream is now pouring
into the Mississippi river a greater
body of water than ever
before. From Alton to St Charles,
twelve miles from the mouth of the
Missouri river, the country is one vast
body of muddy water. The water has
worked its way around the high land
and for miles back of these cities the
countrj is inundated to a depth of
from two to six feet. The same con
dition exists for many miles down the
river toward St. Louis, and should the
flood begin to recede to-day it will be
many weeks before the river will have
returned to its regular channel.
The amount of damage and suffering
caused by the overflow can scarcely be
estimated. The whole country is a
desolate waste. Hundreds of families
arcdriven from their homes, their live
stock drowned and crops destroyed.
To add to the serious condition of the
beleaguered people sickness has over
taken them to an alarming extent.
They have been living in improvised
huts, tents and poorly constructed
buildings, and as a result of the ex
posure many families are suffering
from pneumonia and other sickness in
cidental to cold and wet weather.
A public relief committee has been
organized in this city, and already
$10,000 has been subscribed for the re
lief of the destitute.
Gov. Fifer of Illinois and staff
reached Alton this morning, and ac
companied b.y the Alton relief commit
tee, boarded a steamer and began a
tour of the flooded district- The Gov
ernor will, if necessary, call a special
session of the Illinois Legislature with
a view of making an appropriation
for the relief of the inhab
itants of the submerged dis
trict. The Governor has given orders
that the tents, blankets, cots, and
other quartermaster's stores at the ar
senal be used for the temporary relief
of the refugees of the inundated bot
tom lands, and should these prove in
adequate the United States quarter
master's stores at Chicago will be called
The water commenced to rise in the
northern part of St. Louis at midnight
last night and has been gradually ris
ing up to noon to-day. The guage
shows that the rise has overcome the
fall of yesterday and the worst is ex
pected. DAMAGES OF 85,000,000.
Estimate of the Effects of the Flood at
Kansas City and Vicinity.
Kansas City, Mo., May 23. The
Missouri river rose about an inch last
night and is now stationary again,
with reports from above indicating
that a fall is coming. The Kaw fell six
inches at Manhattan last night and is
falling a little there now. At St. Jo
seph, Mo., and Plattsmouth, Neb., the
water is stationary and above there a
slight fall has been noticed. It rained
all last night and is still threatening
here to-day. As the water begins to
go down an estimate is being made of
the actual damage done in this vicinity.
There are now in Harlem, Argentine,
Armourdale and West Kansas over one
thousand houses which have been de
serted and are surrounded by water.
It is impossible to more than make a
rough estimate, but it is believed that
the damage actual and resultant will
amount to fully 55,000,000 in this im
Sioux City Needs Help.
Sioux City, Iowa, May 23. Only one
more body has been found. The sensa
tional reports sent out about another
flood from Big Sioux river last night
are unfounded. It is cold and
snowing, but no further floods
are expected. Sufferers are being
cared for. At a joint meeting of the
committees appointed by the citizens
of Sioux City to provide ways and
means for the relief of flood sufferers
held this morning it was agreed to say
to the benevolent people of the country
that the losses far exceed the first es
timate, and that whatever aid may be
offered will be gratefully accepted. All
contributions should be made to Maris
Peirce, mayor, or J. C. French, treas
urer ot the relief committee.
Dinner to Secretary Tracy.
Baltimore. Md., May 23. -The citi

losses by this morning's fire. The as
sessed valuation of the elevators burned
is S148.000. This is not one-half
of the value, however. The Wash
ington mill and elevator is valued
at 3100,000 and is insured for
$40,000 on building and machinery and
$20,000 on stock. The Columbia is own
ed by the Jesse Hoy testate, New York.
The Merchants, is assessed at
$50,000 and was to-day without insur

owned by John H. Hankinson, New
York, is partly insured. The Marine is
insured for $40,000 on the building and
880,000 on the stock. This loss is fairly
covered. The Northwestern elevator
was on fire several times and the grain
in store is slightly damaged. Rath
bun's loss on lumber is $12,000, covered
by insurance. It is estimated that the
elevator costs cost $330,000. The total
