VANCOUVER , 11 C. , May 31. The Fraser
rl\er Is still rising , nnd the Indications are
that the flood will be even more disastrous
than the great flood of 1SS2. The rl\cr has
already risen tolthln eight inches of the
high water mark of that great Inundation.
Though the \vhole valley U under water ,
teh Fraser having spread out Into a vast
lake , the tide Is , crawling up at the rate of
an Inch every tluee hours. At Nv\ West
minster the river wharves are submerged.
.Many cabins along the watei front ha\e
floated oft on the tide , and many root fam
ilies have lost all their belongings. Points
further up the river report Increasing dan
ger. At Nlcomcn Islam ! fortj-ftmr fine
farms are entirely under water. Though
much live stock has norlshcd , but eight
human lives are Known to have been lost.
No further fatalities are reported today.
Annacls island , two miles above New
Westminster , Is totally submerged. Many
fine faims formerly dotted the island. The
ranchers were rescued by steamboats , but
all their stock has gone down the river. All
the ilver stcum > rs have been commissioned
by the government to service In securing
the Imperiled persons. In the vicinity of
Huhy the greatest danger lb apparent , and
several steamers have he n ill-patched to
that district. The maiks of the great flood
of 1882 have already been passed.
The Fra/er river has ti&en three Inches
at Westminster during the past twenty-four
hours and Is still rising. At North Bend the
water Is a foot above the mark of the great
floods of 1882. As the \varm weather con
tinues and there is Etlll a large amount of
snow In the mountains the river may bo
expected to rise much higher. Steamers arc
still busily engaged In rescuing settlers and
cattle. An Idea ot the depth of the water
may be gathered from the fact that a
steamer drawing six feet of water passed
over several Islands In the center of the
channel of the river. Last night the water
reached fourteen Inches over the Central
Pacific tracks near Mission and no trains
were dispatched today. No mall has been
received hero for eight days. A fund has
been started here to assist settlers who ha\e
lost their all by the floods. It is no uncom
mon sight now to Bee houses and barns
floating down the river. Reports of the
drowning of some Indians have been re
ceived , but cannot be verified.

the Means of Communication.
PORTLAND , Ore. , May 31. No trains have
arrived from the east over the Union Pacific
slnco last Saturday. The company has put
on boats at Umatllla , , but Is experiencing
great difficulty in making portages at The
Dalles nnd Cascade. Telegraph communica
tion along the Columbia Is cut oft to Uma-
tllla and the only means of reaching eastern
Oregon and Washington is by a circuitous
route. Miles of the Union Pacific track
along the Columbia Is washed out , nnd It
will probably bo more than a week before
another train reaches this city over that
route. The Northern Pacific managed to
keep passengers and malls moving by press
ing Into service the largo transfer boat used
at Kalama. The Southern Pacific has expe
rienced only slight delays. The northern
part of the city , back as far as Ninth street ,
Is a vast lake , and business In the whole
sale district Is entirely suspended. The absence -
sonco of any current in the Willamette
river makes navigation by boats \cry easy ,
and hundreds of small boats are being used
along Front , First and Second streets from
Alder street to the north end. The river
was at a standstill at 3 p. m.
A telephone message from the assistant
RO\eminent engineer at the Cascade Locks
states that the bulkhead is leaking , but ho
iloes not think that It nil ! go out nor that
any serious damage Is likely to bo done.
The damage to the Union Pacific track be
tween Portland nnd Umntllla will , It Is
thought , reach Into the hundreds of thou
Great damage has been done to farmers
living along the Columbia river In the loss
af stock and crops. In the city but little
lamago has thus far resulted. Owing to the
slow and gradual rising of the water , mer-
2hantH had ample time to get their goods
jut of the way. The latest Intelligence from
; ho upper Columbia region was that the
river at Umatlllo and Rlparla was statlon-
iry. It la generally believed that the water
n this city 1ms about reached Us extreme
lelght. Its subsidence will bo very slow
iwlng to the largo arm over which the water
a spread. The Western Union tonight lost
ill wires to the north and Seattle and
racoma are totally cut off as far as tele-
is concerned. Twenty

miles of poles along the Columbia are
