PABT OF THE GALVESTON STORM
Morning reports to the railroads
Indicate rain over practically all Ne
braska Monday night, In most locali
ties continuing Tuesday. A summary
of the reports show that the heaviest
downpour was at Fremont and up the
Elk horn and Platte river valleys a
distance of twenty miles or so. As
a result of the unusually heavy rains
the lowlands for miles around Fre
mont are under water to a depth of
from one to two feet.
At Fremont, according to the report of
the agent of the Northwestern there, the
rainfall Monday night was (.10 Inches,
with more than 1.50 Inches Monday after
noon, makng the totall for the day and
night close to S.75 Inches.
In the railroad yards In east Fremont
It was asserted that the water was more

from the Union station north it had at-'

Elkhora Overflows Banks.
North of Fremont for a distance oi
twenty miles or so, it was reported that
the Elkhorn was out of Its banks and
that In some places had overflowed the
bottoms, being mora than a mile in width.
Similar conditions are said to have
maintained up the Platte nearly as far as
Scrlbner. All of the lowlands are flooded,
barn buildings rising out of the water
like Islands in the sea.
The only washouts reported to the
railroads are along the Union Pacific's
branch south of 'Beatrice. There, while
the rain was not so heavy as over the
country to the north, the land being more
rolling, the water came in rapidly from
the hills doing more damage. This wash
out was not of groat extent and was re
paired during the early morning.
Down the Missouri valley from Omaha
there was an all-night rain and it was
stUl raining at noon, according to a report
to the Missouri Pacific.
In Missouri Pacifio territory tho rain
during the night was around two to three
inches. Auburn had a precipitation of S.76;
Fairbury, 1.63; Fairmont. 1.66, and Ne

Is the second time since the 1900 disaster
that Galveston has been visited by a

weather conditions prevailing here, and
has predicted more rain during the next
twenty-four hours. -
