A crisis Is at band in the Platte river
situation at Fremont. Last night the
. inter was within a foot of the top of
Cemetery Ridge, which keeps It out of
sown rremont. Men vera working wua
sandbars to save the city.
Mayor George f. Wots assembled twenty-five
boats for relief service, and It was
agreed to blow the firs whistle it the
dyke went out.
The water Is said to be the highest In
The Platta Ice Is still Intact at Fremont,
but the Loup has broken up and the de
luge will reach Fremont probably early
Many South Fremont residents moved
furniture upstairs and abandoned their
homes last night.
Plane is Breaking la.
The Platta has broken up the entire
distance from its mouth tos point be
low where the Burlington crosses the
stream on Its Omaha-Lincoln line. Gen
erally the Ice Is honey-combed and dis
integrated, with now and then some Isrge
cakes, which are dynamited long before
they reach any of the bridges. It Is felt
'that all danger of bridges being sweat
away has passed.
The situation along the Blue river
south of Beatrice has improved. The
river is pretty well cleared of Ice and
the water has fallen from a foot to eigh
teen Inches sines Wednesday. The gorge
between Fremont end North BendS still
holds, but snows signs of breaking.
West of Valley water continues to over
flow the banks of the Platte, but the
volume Is smaller than Wednesday. From
Grind Island west the small streams
have broken up and discharged their
waters Into ths riatte, the Ice of which
still holds firm, apparently being trosen
to the bottom. It Is the opinion that
over this stretch of the river the Ice
win never oreaa up. out insieeu win
become covered with sand and will grad
ually melt and be worn away.
i Bottoiea Ah lasadated.
Along the Elk horn the only high water
reported la la the vicinity of Hooper,
north of Fremont. There it has spread
over the bottoms, but has not Interfered
with the running of trains, being from
tee to tour feet below the tracks where
the road passes over tbe low lands, in
this stream little Ice has moved out, but
It is beginning to break at a dosen or
more points this side of Norfolk. From
Norfolk west there have been few breaks.
Many of the streams that were bank full
Wednesday were falling yesterday.
At Omaha the Missouri nver remains
practically stationary, having risen but
one-tenth of a foot during the last twenty-tour
hours. During the same period
of time, at Sioux City, there was, a rise
of a little mors than a foot. While the
ice Is holding pretty firm In the vicinity
of Omaha It is showing signs of break
ing. The main body Is full of air holes
snd Is disintegrating under the warm
rays of tbe sua. Breakups are reported
from opposite Blair aad in the big bend
roar spans of the wagon bridge at
Louisville were taken out last evening
by ths ice. Ths Missouri Paclflu Is

gorge forms It is Mown out with dyna

Union Pacific trains were delayed st
Columbus yesterday afternoon when the
gorge in ths Loup river broke above ths
city snd the wster snd Ice csme down In
torrents, overflowing- part of the tracks
In ths yards. A' short stretch of track
was washed away, but the water soon
went down and the track was repaired.

Warm weather of ths last two days has
caused the Ice to break In the Des Moines
river. An immense Ice gorge hss formed
near Cobyton, fifteen miles north and
.caused Us lowlands in that part of the
county ta be overflowed with water. The
gorgs hss wedged Itself sgslnst ths Coby

Walnut Creek., five miles west of Des

MEMBERS STILL COMING IN
Loving Cup to Man Who Secorei the

CAMPAIGN IS AT FIVES HEAT

To increase the excitement in the wad
rush for new members for the Commer
cial club, to start competition and create
greater enthusiasm among the members
of the membership committee, it such s
thing ia possible, announcement was made
that a handsome silver loving cup would
bs awarded the bustler bringing In the
most new members. . .
Thirty -one new members were reported
st noon, making a total of 11. This
leaves 19 before the coveted 1.S0) mark
. At the noon meeting of- the membership
committee in the club rooms Chairman
Samuel Burns, jr., told of the reward.
In the hurry of the harvesting the fact
that the efforts of the boosters were to
bs compensated had been entirely overlooked.
Tbe loving cup has not yet been placed
on display. It probably being the inten
tion of those at heedquartera to keep !
hidden and save It aa a surprise to the
campaign bustier. Plana for making the
award have not been given out. but It
has been said there wilt be held a meet
ing at which Interesting ceremonies wil
accompany ths presentation of the prise.
All Am Boaatlaa.
Besides the membership committee
every member of the club is working dili
gently to help bis organisation reach ths
UOt mark. Even those who are not In
the city are sending In letters telling of
having met Omaha men on trains and at
small ststlons whom they have induced
to come Into the fold.
A telegram waa received yesterday from
Guy H. Cramer at Lincoln. It read:
"Had twelve minutes to catch train this
morning, but . landed Frank B. Rogers'
application on way to depot."
These applications have Increase in
number sufficiently literally to paper ths
lobby of ths Commensal club rooms. Up
to noon Wednesday 390 applications, com
pletely Oiled out. adorned the walla
Ths malls coming and going out of
Omaha and circulating back and forth
about ths city have been Oiled with
literature on tha membership campaign
and 7.500 pieces of mall have gone out
from headquarters in ths last ten days, all
pertaining to club membership.
Attorney C. 8. Elguttsr. who has been
Instrumental in securing most of the
members of the legal fraternity, says ha
sent out fifty letters to men eligible to
membership. He has dona thla work on
his own Initiative.
Many business and professional men
who formerly belonged to tne Commercial
club have been drawn back into ths fold
by ths new spirit which has arisen In
recent months. At the daily meetlnga of
tbe membership committee, at which
prospective members and ways snd means
of reaching them are talked of, it has
eome to light that many men have been
ready to Join tha club, but have held back
because they bad not been asked.
Ia tne present campaign It. is ths pur
pose to make such excuses Impossible.
That thoss who go after a new member
are obsessed with the Idea and deter
mined may ha shown In a case cited by
A. W. Gordon. Ha bad been turned down
by one prospect three times, and then to
show bis persistence he secured the as
sistance of bis sttorney, J. A. C. Ken
nedy, and tha member was landed.
Tbe 1.000 membership blanks printed
several weeks before ths campaign waa
begun and then thought greatly more
than a sufficient number, have almost
gone. Negotiations are being made for
tbe printing of mora.
