sons, and although the rescue boats found
mar.y people In second stories and on
housetops there sre rows upon rows of cot
tage that early this morning did not show
a Sign of life.
Thousands of people stood on the Broad
way embankment today and looking across
the expanse of water covering the railroad
yards of the Southern railroad to these
houses, asked each other If they had not
been transformed Into scpulchers. Nons
could be found who said they had escaped
from them and none knew of occupants
who had. Possibly they may have got
away In safety, but ther. la grav. fear
that when all the living have been trans
ferred to land the boats will bear bodies of
dead from the flooded cottages and deso
lated section of the city.
In the turmoil of this calamity It has
been practically impossible to authenticate
death reports, but from apparently reliable
sources it Is gathered that eleven persons
irtre drowned last night, four of whom
perished on tho north side early In the
w Segro Thieves Shot Down.
t ' was currently reported today that
seven negroes, caught In the act of looting
houses last night, were shot to death. They
war. all on a raft and were surprised by
guards, who shot them down And threw
their bodies Into the water. While this
was not confirmed It Is known that there
was heavy firing on the north side early
last night where these negroes are said tc
have been killed.
The deaths of John Koolish, a Polish car
penter, and ' his three children, two boyi
aged 6 and 7 and a girl of 12, were caused
by trying to save three kegs of beer. The
Koolish horn, had been surrounded by
water for several days. The family had
been living In the second story and last
night decided to go to land. Koolish took
two sons and his wife and 3-months-old In
fant safely to land. He then returned for
his other three children. Getting them
safely Into the boat he started to row tc
,lad. when' H. stopped at a submerged
house to. take off three kegs of beer, as re
quested by the owner, a friend. In trying
to load the kegs Into the boat the eraft wa:

After that no furniture was transported.
It was Impossible for a reporter to ac
company any boat on a trip to th. flooded
houses half a mile distant. No boat could
be hired or bought and nobody except
rowers and refugee wer permitted In
those thus used. There were so many vol
unteer oarsmen that reporters were barred
from volunteering, so the scene In the
flooded district can only be described from
what was hurriedly gleaned from the res
cuers. Women Cllngr to Homes.
When boats were rowed alongside homee

second stories and on mors, In the great
majority of cases the ocoupants could not

meant that their' belongings were at the
mercy of river thieves and they would
remain and stand guard. Peculiarly enough
th women were those most unwilling to
be rescued, although Home wrung their
hands and wept in terror. They were as
sured that Governor Yates, had telegraphed
that four companies of mllltla for guard
duty would arrive by nightfall and would
establish a thorough boat patrol with; or
ders to kill river thieves on sight, and
finally the unwilling householders were per
suaded to go to land. . . '
As wives entered boats that were too
full to carry husbands, or children wer.
sent ahead of parents, they wept and
cdasped each other In their arm In ab
ject fear that some calamity might forever
separate them. One mother knelt on the
housetop with hands uplifted In audible
prayer for a safe voyage as her children
were taken away.
At the landing weeping women were ten

from the water "calling .for some missing

All day long boats dumped their burdens
and started again for more. .. All day long
pathetic scenes wrung ' the hearts of ' by
standers, but still there- was time occasion
ally to think of other things, : During- the
afternoon the cry went up along the land
ing: "Stand away everybody, .clear' the
boats away, Let that horse land.
Coming around the corner of a halt sub
merged house, with nose baTely out of
water, a bay horse almost exhausted was
seen swimming under water. It was feared
if a boat went to its assistance the horse
would veer off and drown. Hundreds of
lips chirped and called encouragement, a
the horse struggled on. Finally it reached
the landing, but there was a depth of six
feet at the shore and It could not climb out.
It laid Its head on the bank and moaned
In exhaustion. Twenty men sprang for
ward and the valiant horse, which must
have swam for a long distance, was fairly
lifted out of the water, and everybody
wanted to rub It ' down. It was led away
by a man who said he would make it
comfortable. . -

As the night drew on another fear con
fronted the Inhabitants. The water that
had steadily been pouring through the
roadway embankment In heavy streams
was undermining that bulwark and It was
generally acknowledged that the street
could not restrain the heavy pressure from

the seepage water eating away at the in

Donvernlde, a suburb of East St. Louis,
was completely Inundated, and Alta Bita,
farther to the east, waa half flooded last
night If the river rises even a fraction
more the water must swamp Alta Blta.
From the ordinary course of the Missis
sippi to the Illinois bluffs Is from Ave to
eight miles but tonight the flood laps th
foot of the bluffs.
As soon as news of the Inundation spread
through St. Louis the whole city became
excited. Rumor, of deaths started thou
sands of sightseers across Eads bridge to
view th calamity. But the authorities
In East St Louis were prepared to moet
Just such a host of curious people. Beyond
the eastern approach to Eads bridge Is a
trip of street half a mile long, leading to
th viaduct over what ordinarily Is Caho
kta creek. This viaduct Is the entrance
into East St. Louis and across It entrance
ropes were early stretched by police officers
who stood behind them under orders to
allow no egress Into the city of those who
would only hinder the work of rescue. At
the East St Louis end of the viaduct sim
ilar prohibitive measures had been taken.
East St Louis was practically shut off
from th world. Even refugees with babec
In arms and bundles of belongings, who de
sired to proceed to St. Louis, were stopped
and questioned as to their destination In
the Missouri city and until they could
demonstrate that they were sure of being
taken care of by friends they were turned
back to the relief offered by the city.
Tin stars were hurriedly made and fas
tened to pin for attachment by the local
authorities, and reporters and cltlsen
generally who volunteered to render every
assistance possible, and that meant prac
tically every able-bodied man, was fur
nished with these badges and could freely
pass the lines of guarding police stationed
throughout the city.
Cameras Are Barred Oat.
Newspaper photographers and persons
with cameras were dealt with uncere
moniously. One newspaper photographer
who had been warned not to take a picture
of th flood, but who persisted, wat
knocked down and his camera broken. He
was told that unless he departed he and
his camera would be thrown Into the water.
He departed. -
Just opposite the Broadway and Tenth
street landing, too feet from shore, stands a
locomotive, of the Southern railway, with
water half-way to the top of the boiler.
This engine was pushing cars loaded with
dirt to the threatened Illinois Central em
bankment last night, when the rush of
Water came. Just as the water struck the
moving engine It left the track and waa
stopped. With water slowly creeping up
to quench the fire the engineer remained In
his cab and shrieked the whistle until the
rising water stopped him. It la said this
locomotive sounded the last warning to th
Inhabitants. Then the engineer climbed out
of bis cab and swam ashore.
This afternoon the large headlight and
rear light were taken from the engine and
stationed along the shore to throw Illumi
nating rays across the water and assist the
rescuers In their work.
Riot guns were collected by Chief of
Police Pitrdy today and tonight given .ut

to kill Marcum and that Jett fired the
shots, having been seen by a witness whom
he would produce.
B. J. Ewen, the first witness, testified to
standing beside Marcum when he was shot.
Just before the shooting Tom White passed
by and Marcum said: "I'm afraid of that
fellow; he means to do me harm." An

On redirect examination he said fear for

Callahan snd Hargls to know what he had
seen. This statement from a deputy sheriff
of th county, who hes lived a prisoner In
hi home through fear and been under
military guard when awake or asleep for
several weeks, produced a visible Impres
sion In the court room.
Ewen told of making a search of the
courthouse shortly after the assassination
and finding no one. He had seen the as

Attorney J. C. Bache, the next witness,
said he saw White come out of the .court

before th assassination he saw Jett and
White conversing In front of the court

Jett leave tha courthouse by a side door.
Later he saw Jett and White walk to the
