due here at 4 o'clock Saturday, is known
to be safe somewhere north or east of here.
The trnln arrived at Liberty, Mo., twenty-
five miles northeast of Kansas City, late
Sunday afternoon. The tracks Into Kan

all directions being badly demoralized, the
train was split into two parts and sent

Some of the passengers continued on to
Kansas City by. other means of transpor

one of the two sections of the train and
dropped' off at different towns along the
line east and north of Liberty, making
connections with other roads. While the
exact location of the train is not known,
there Is every reason to believe that all
the, passenger are safe.
Sixty-seven passengers from a St. Joseph
tc Grand Island train which arrived at the
Mllwaukeo bridge five miles east of Kansas
City Sunday night, were rescued by a
steamer from the Randolph . end of the
bridge last night. Some of these were at
first believed" to be passengers from the
tailed train, but this prqved not to be the
case. - . -.i
Among the stranded passengers were a
number of prominent residents of Kansas
City.. One of them. Judge W. p. Hall, said
When we reached the Milwaukee bridge
Sunday night the engineer and conductor
reared to cross on account of the reported
damage to the piers and held the train
there all night. Monday morning the train
returned to St. Joseph, leaving about twenty-five
of us at Randolph. We hoped to
cross the river In boats. Sunday night we
lept in the train and Monday night at
some farm houses nearby. We had plenty
to eat and suffered nothing but Inconven
ience. We could see the -city In the dis
tance, but could not get a word of news
about the nooa.
Missouri Paclfle Bridge Stands.
The report last night that the Missouri
Pacific bridge had gone out proved this
morning to be incorrect. The bridge which
pant the Kaw is weighted down by seven
teen engines, and as well as can be judged
today by inspection made with the aid of
a field glass from the' bluff half a mile
away the bridge is still safe.
The water about the structure Is lower
and the current less strong than yesterday.

ST. LOUIS GETTING A TASTE
Crest of the Flood In Both the
Rivers Wearing; the Mound
ST. LOUIS, June 3 The Mississippi con
tinues to rise, a stage of 81.8 feet being
shown at 7 a. m. This is a rise of 1.3 feet
during the last twenty-four hours. It is
expected that thirty-two feet' will be
reached some time today. In the meantime
people all along the river front, both here
and in East St. Louis, are preparing for
the big flood.
The rlvermen and government officials
predict that the water will be over the
levee railroad tracks by noon today and
officials of the different roads affected are
busy making arrangements to place their
rilling stock where it will be safe.
Weather Observer Bowie says of the situ
The river at Kansas City is reported ten
miles wide. Whatever the cause of delay
In the arrival of the waters from that flood
stage, the outlook here becomes more en
couraging. The Mississippi below here Is
comparatively low, which means that the
water at presnt In the St. Louis district
will move out rapidly, thereby possibly
permitting the Kansas City stage of water
io reacn nere r naay or oaiuraay, at a
time whert most of the flood from the Des
Moines river and upper Mississippi ' will
have nassed here. - .-
At the northern end of St. Louis county
the resident are moving their stock' across
the bluffs and are preparing to follow it
with their household furniture if the river
continues to rise. Hundreds of acres in
St. Louis and St. Charles counties, near
the Missouri's mouth, and thousands of
additional acres are so situated that a
few feet additional In rise would cover
them. Vast crowds of spectators throng
Eads bridge and line the levee.
The water Is slowly creeping higher, but
unless there Is a rise of four feet it will not
enter the building fronting on the levee.
St. Louis, being situated much lower. Is In
far more greater danger of heavy damage
by a rise.
Already large lakes have been formed In
the low section. North of St. Louis, from
Eads bridge, the water can be seen ex
tending back over the lowlands between
that place and Granite City and forming a
veritable lake. The same condition pre
vails south of East St. Louts. ;
River Coming;' Up.
Slowly the Mississippi crept up the levee
today, Inch by Inch, the gauge marking a
rise of six inches, and tonight at 7:30
o'clock stood at 31.7 feet. The surface of
the swiftly flowing water . was thickly
strewn with drift, which seemed to in
crease as the day drew on, indicating that
the crest of the flood. Is ' approaching. . A
number of frame houses, submerged all
but the roofs, passed St. Louis, .and now
and then a dead animal, but po human
bodies were seen
Harbor department officials believe that
tomorrow the river will rise more rapidly
and they look for a thlrty-flve-foot stage
by Saturday. If their forecast comes true,
the lower floors of buildings along the
levee front will be flooded, but with all
the preparation that has been made, such
a rise cannot cause any great amount
of damage to St. Louis. In North St.
Louts employes of the lumber yards lo
cated along tha river spent . all day re
moving the piles of lumber from the prox
lmity of danger.
In South St. Louis several houses along
the river's edge have been flooded, but
the occupants have removed their property
Among those who will feel ths losses
most heavy are the truck farmers and
gardeners all along the river. On the Illi
nois side there is a mors serious flood
condition. Venice, situated north of East
St. Louis.; Is In almost Immediate danger
of Inundation. A rise of a foot mors will
submerge ths west portion of ths town
and manufacturing industries will suffer
heavy losses. The water works plant
which supplies Venice, Granite City and
Madison is situated on Grabet Island. Al
ready the water has reached ths sill of ths
boiler room floor snd a small further rise
will extinguish the fires and cut off the
water supply of those thres towns, .
Between Venice and East Bt Louis Is
lowland area used as farming lands.
Water now covers this area to a depth of
twelve feet, forming a lake about a mile
square. Many "squatter" families have
been forced out, leaving everything behind.
The river has encroached Into the railroad
yards and the shipping district of East St.
Louis and warehouses located along ths
levee are half submerged. With, ths first
warning stores were hurriedly removed be
yond possible reach of ths water, .
People along the river have received a
general warning and it Is believed that rll
In danger have escaped to higher ground.
No Outsits Help Needed. .
DES MOINES, June 8- Ths work of ear
ing for tha 5,000 destitute flood sufferer is
still taxing tha local relief committee to the
utmost, but ths committee has affirmed
that there Is no need of outside assistance.
Ten thousand dollars has been subscribed
bere. In addition to a large quantity ot
clothing and food. .
At Atlantlq two marooned families were
discovered in ths Nlshnabotna bottoms last
night, cooped up In their own homes by ths
Bovd. For Ave days they had teas sons
pelled to sit on tables, with no drinking
wster and practically nothing to eat.
The river continues to fall rapidly be
tween here and Keokuk.
OTTUMWA, la., June 8. A fall of three
feet In the Des Moines river was recorded
here this morning, the, water standing 19
feet. The water plant la still under water
and the only protection from firs Is an en
gine from Chicago.
Stationary at Lexlnartoa.
LEXINGTON, Mo.. Juns 8.-Tha Missouri
river Is stationary here tonight at 26.8 feet
above low water mark, with every pros
pect of a fall before morning. The amount
of damage caused by the flood In this
section cannot be estimated. A strip of
country five miles wide and thirty miles
long is under water three to ten feet deep.
Washout Stops Traffic.
MARSHALL, Moi, June 8. A washout
near West Glasgow on the Chicago &
Alton has cut off all railroad communica
tion between this city and the east. The
Glasgow bridge is 'in great danger. Trains
may run on the Missouri Paclfio tracks
from Waverly to Lamlne and over the
Chicago & Alton from Slater to Indepen
dence. Highest Mark at Hannibal.
HANNIBAL; Mo., Juns 8. A stage of
21. 8 feet reached by the Mississippi es
tablished the highest mark in the history
of Hannibal. The water la now nine feet
over ths danger line, a rise of 2.5 foet In
the past twenty-four hours. Flood con
ditions have never before confronted Han
nibal to such a grave extent and It is
estimated that tbe damage already done
will amount to at least 8200,000.
The street car system Is paralyzed and
the city electric light plant is shut down,
leaving the city In total darkness, causing
the suspension of work by a large number
of manufacturing Industries which utilise
electric power for. running their ma
chinery. The yards of the Wabash, Missouri, Kan
sas & Texas and Burlington, St. Louis and
Hannibal roads are from two to twelve
feet under water. Few trains are running
Into the city at present. Business gen
erally Is tied up. Between ten and fifteen
of the Important business blocks, some
residences and building along ths levee
are flooded. Occupant of .many residences
in South Hannibal were compelled to va
cate their homes today.
The sny loves across from Hannibal
which protects 100,000 acres of fertile Illi
nois land, may go at any time. Guards
are patrolling the levee to give the alarm
should a crack appear and throngs of
workmen are working tonight to ballast
the embankment. A stage of twenty-two
feet by morning is predicted.
Cots ThrooBh Embankment.
BOONVILLE, Mo., June 3. The river
cut through the embankment of the Mis
souri, Kansas & Texas railroad tonight
about half way between the bridge and
Franklin Junction. This leaves Boonvllle
without any connection with the north.
east and west. Should the river continue
to rise this break may prove more serious
than now Is apparent as there are indi
cations that the river channel may change
to North Bluff. A strong current has set
in from the break at Copper levee, eight,
miles above here and comes down through
a series of lakes to Sulpher Creek near
Franklin function. Several frame houses
and bodies of animals and poultry have
been brought down by the current.
Fear for Mlaaoarl Levees.
LOUISIANA, Mo., June .-Th ' Missis
sippi river here is still rising at the rate of
one Inch an hour and the gauge registered
17 feet .6 inches. In 1888 a stage of 18 feet
8 Inches broke the levee which' protect
more than 100,000 acres of fine farming land
In Illinois. Since then, however, the levee
has been improved, but It is now feared It
will break again. All the men that can be
employed ars working on the levee. The
only communication between here and
Qulnoy and the north by rail Is by ths east
side, and four roads are using one track.
It will be Impossible to use that after to
Railroads Are Damaged.
ARDMORE,, I. T., June 8. Ths rail
roads in Indian Territory have been the
chief sufferers as a result of heavy wash
outs during the past week. The Rock
Island has sustained the largest loss, esti
mated at 8600,000 in both territories. The
Santa Fe also has been a heavy loser. It
is announced that through traffic has been
resumed on the Purcell-Galveston branch
of ths Santa Fe, although trains are run
ning with little regard to Schedule. Hun
dreds of workmen are repairing breaks. It
is thought that the roads will be in good
condition - within ths next twenty-four
hours. The Washita river has receded and
all danger Is past.

In the district conventions held this aft
ernoon the so-called Hanha men had every
thing their own way in seventeen out of the
twenty-one congressional districts. The
closest contests were for members of the
state central committee. From the result,
of these meetings it Is apparent that tha
Hanna men control ths convention.
The nominations,.- however, will not be
made without a show of strife, for though
Senator Hanna's friends centered their ef
forts for certain candidates, up to a lata
hour tonight, they were unabla to get Sen
ator Hanna "to give out the word" even
for Boothman for lieutenant governor, the
place ot contest and the one on which ths
lines were more distinctly drawn.
Not Willing to Dictate.
It Is generally known that Myron T. Her
rick of Cleveland will be nominated for
governor without opposition. He Joins Mr.
Hanna In the desire not to dictate the nom
inations for all the state offices.
In former campaigns Senator Hanna has
given terms for campaign songs and mot
toes such as "We know our buslnesa,"
"Let well enough alone," "Stand pat," etc.
Tonight his friends are quoting the words
"Keep on letting well enough alone," which
provoked tremendous applause In the con
J. B. CUngman, chairman of the state
central committee, called the convention
to order at 4. p. m. Ex-Governors Foster
and Bushnell, members of congress and
other prominent republicans were In wait

sat with the Franklin delegates. Ovations
were tendered leaders as they entered ths
hall, notably Senators Hanna and Foraker
and Myron T. Herrlck. and when Senator
Hanna was Introduced as temporary chair
man the demonstration was long and
Senator Hanna's Speech. . .
After referring to ths recent celebration
of the 100th anniversary of Ohio's admis
sion to statehood Senator Hanna spoke of
the wonderful development of the stats in
recent years. While much of this was das
to natural ' resources, he ' said the people
owed much of their, prosperity to the fun
damental principles of ths republican party.
The history of that party' arid tha legisla
tion enacted by It he reviewed at length.
The administration ot state affairs by
the present republican, administration, h
said, had been all that could have been
desired and In ths approaching campaign
the republicans need only ' to point back
to their record. Continuing Senator Hanna
What can be.se Id off Ohio can be said
of .our nation. Republicans today 'can con
gratulate themselves that in the direction
of national affairs they havs realised all
they hoped for and' alt 'they expected In
the administration tot. Theodore Roosevelt.
(Great applause.) We look back but a few
short, months, when that herolo man,
standing under the gloom Of that awful
tragedy at Buffalo, feeling and appreci
ating the responsibilities which had corns
upon him, and In the presence of the
American people, made that sacred promise
to them that to the, best of his ability,
with his heart full of desire It should be
his aim to carry out the policies of Presi
dent McKlnley. (Long continued applause.)
And how well he has succeeded ws all
know and we all feel as this convention
will express an appreciation of that ad
ministration. We all realise that to that
young heroic president is due as coming
from his heart, the most patriotic, unsel
fish and energetlo devotion to the interests
of the people and the principles of our
party. (Long continued applause.)
Praise for Roosevelt.
Standing- In the presence of the Ameri
can people and hearing those words, the
solemn Import of which indelibly im
pressed Itself upon all who stood near him,
no one can doubt his motives or even his
ambition. No one can place him in the
category of a man whose ambition Is
greater than his patriotism. (Great ap

Is It any wonder, then, that the people
of the whole country should bs onlooker
this day and tomorrow and watching with
eagerness the result of the principles an
nounced and the policies to be tried which
shall have their direct Influence on the
campaign of 1904T Is there anybody in this

the state ot Ohio, who for one minute under
all the conditions who have gone before,
under all the environments of the present,
under all the hopes of the future can see
one single cause why the republican party
should change one lota In those principles?
Human liberty, protection to American
industries and our workingmen. (Renewed
applause.) We started with that slogan
many years ago. It went forth and reached
the hearts of every fireside In the land
and If we needed any additional tribute or
any accessory to add to the lunter of that
monument It Would be the culmination of
happiness and contentment perceptible
everywhere around us, I once said: "let

As to Capital aad Labor.
In conclusion Senator Hanna spoke briefly
of the relationship between capital and
labor. The day is dawning, he said, when
that all Important question will be taken
up, discussed and considered, not purely '
from the standpoint ot politics, but from
the standpoints of humanity and society.
Tb ultimate solution, he predicted, would
be found In arbitration.

a speech of Benator Hanna as temporary

will be the speech of Senator Foraker on

It is conceded that the opposition Is not
so much against the third ' termers as
against a slate which It is claimed was
fixed by a couple of men long before any
ot the delegates were selected. The at
tack on "third termers" Is made because
two of the three who are seeking third
terms are believed to be on the slate.
Notwithstanding Senator Hanna's declara
tions that he would not personally try to

the stats ticket, applicants for those places
today declared that the senator's friends
were trying to put a slate through and

declared on the Hanna men.

MILLERS HAVE A COMPLAINT
Allege Bailroada Bhow No Appreciation of
Indus try' b Importance.
SAY FOREIGNERS ARE GIVEN ADVANTAGE
Trade iu All Portions ot Country Is
Represented mt Convention Now
In Session at Detroit,
DETROIT, June 3. More than 300 dele
gates, repreKentlng the millers' trade in all
parts of the country, were present when
the first convention of the Millers' Federa
tion was culled to order ihla afternoon.
Proportionate rates and the reciprocity
treaty negotiated by Commissioner Kasson
are two of the moat Important subjects that
the millers will consider. They tillie thut
the railroads and the steamship lines dis
criminate aguinst flour in favor of wheat in
In his address this evening President A.
E. Eckhart of Chicago said:
The railroad companies until quite re
cently have tailed to show a proper appre
ciation of the importance of the milling ln
duutry In that they not only refuxe to make
fair and reaMonaLlo freight rates for carry
ing the product of the mills, but actually
discriminate against (lour for export, al
though such a differential lit unwarranted
by the relative cost of carrying the com
modities. The ocean steamship lines are
still discriminating against flour for export
in favor of wheat for export, thus giving
the foreign miller an unduo advantage over
the American miller.
In regard to the reciprocity treaty, Mr.
The notion of the foreign countries In
closing their doors against our flour, either
by a hiRh protective tariff or a registration
duty, should stimulate the efforts of the
federation, as wtll as the millers of the
country, to favor a policy of national re
ciprocity and to Induce the government to
negotiate new treaties with France, Ger
many, England and other European coun-
Herbert Bradley, secretary of the federa.
tlon In a short address pointed out the
disregard on the part of the millers to the
details of shipping the product.
"Flour bags are often placed in cars,"
he said, "that have just discharged a car of
coal. By the time the bags reach a sea
port and suffer several transfers before
they reach the foreign dealer, they do not
present a desirable appearance.
A memorial from the British flour buy
era was read. In which they declared that
the American product was preferable to
that from any other foreign country, and
urged tha millers to secure the establish'
ment of a more sstlsfactory rate so as to
compels with ths European trads.
