WICHITA , Kan. . Sopt. 21. Land Is caving
In toward the center ol the earth In the
vicinity of tha junction of Harvey. Butler
and Marlon counties In this state Great ex
citement 'prevails ' among the people and
many of them are getting away. The dis
asters are of the most unaccountable origin t
and the state geologist has been summoned I
to investigate the disturbances of the earth j
formations. There was no shock felt when j
the ground caved In bearing any resemblance 1
to an earthquake. Near Whitewater , on the
farm of Thomas BsMngton , an area of forty
by ninety feet sunk to the depth of twenty-
eight feet , and when a man was let down
Into the hole his weight alone sunk It nearly j
three feet more. This occurred yesterday |
and about the same moment an area of sevi i
cnty-flvo feet square sunk at Plum Grove a
depth ol thirty-five feet. This was on the
| farm of Sid Jones , the slldlng-ln carrying
J a threshing machine and separator with It.
Water poured Into the latter hole from under
ground sheets of water till It Is flllled
nearly to the top , but the hole at White
water Is still dry , although It is supposed
that the caved-in earth Is resting upon a vast ]
body of water. Both places are some- seven 1
or eight miles apart. At Annely , home ten '
miles from Whitewater , there rvas several
small cave-ftis. ranging In depth from six '
to forty feet. The theories are various , but I
none of them so far are sclcntlflc Not
long .since a man was digging a well In the
vicinity of Plum Grove , and when ho had
reached a depth of twenty-six feet the drill
shot Into an apparent vacuum and could not
be recovered The supposition Is that there
Is a dried up underground river underneath
the land , which has caved In. All the cave-
Ins , great and small , extend In a crooked ,
streamllke-course a dlstanco of about twenty-
four miles.

Commissioner * About Agrcrd t Submit the
I'lntte Canal Proposition.
The county commissioners held another
meeting yesterday to consider the Platte
river canal project and the advisability of
submitting the bond proposition to the voters
at the November election. While no otllclal
action has been taken by the members of the
board , they have decided that they ulll allow
the voters of Douglas county to cast their
ballots for or against voting aid to the
With the exception of one , ull of the pro
posed changes have been made In the terms
of the agreement between the company

of tlio old proposition there was a pro
vision that In the event the count ) should
want to purchase the canal after a term of
years the judges of the district court were
to act as the arbitrators on the siile By the
terms of the new proposition , when the
time for purchase arrives , the company
wants to nnmo one appraiser , the county
one and the two so named to elect another.
The commissioners contend that three men
should be named , one to be selected by the
company , ono by the county and the two
select the third
