FILLED WITH WATER
Heary Rains of Monday Night Drive
the Hirers from Their Banki
Over the State.
PART 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 heary 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 6.10 Inches,
with more than ISO Inches Monday after
noon, makng the totall for the day and
night close to 6.75 Inches.
In the railroad yards In east Fremont
it was asserted that the water was more
than two feet and that In the main street
from the Union station north it had at
tained a depth of some eighteen inches,
flooding basements and first floors.
Elkhora Overflows Banks.
North of Fremont for a distance oi
twenty miles or so, It wss reported that
the Elkhorn was out of Its banks and
that in some places had overflowed the
bottoms, being more than a mile in width.
Similar conditions are said to have
maintained up the Platte nearly as far as
Bcrlbner. All of the lowlands are flooded,
barn buildings rising out of the water
like Islands in the sea.
The pnly 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 belnr, more
rolling, the water came in rapidly from
the hills doing more damage. This wash
out was not of great extent and was re
paired during the early morning.
Down the Missouri valley from Omaha
there was an all-night rain and It was
still raining at noon, according to a report
to the Missouri Pacific.
In Missouri Pacific territory the rain
during the night was around two to three
Inohes. Auburn had a precipitation of 17b;
Fairbury, 1.63; Fairmont, 1.05, and Ne
braska City and Weeping Water, 3 laches.
Forecaster Welsh has been trying to
get details of the storm that Is raging at
Galveston, but has been unable on ao
count of the havoo wrought to the tele
graph wires, there being none left to con
nect Galveston with the rest of the coun
try. The storm now la progress thera,
according to Mr. Welsh. Is almost a du
plicate of the hurricane that demolished
the place September 8, 1900, but the hugs
sea,yaUpni)fia Ike rliy sftor.ihat storm
Is preventing any serious damage. This
Is the second time since the 1900 disaster
that Galveston has been visited by
rurious storm. Mr. Welsh blames the
Galveston storm, at least In part, for the
weather conditions prevailing here, and
has predicted more rain during the next
twenty-four hours. -

a barn until a crowd searching for
it threatened serious trouble. It
then was taken from the barn to an
undertaking establishment, where to
night a steady stream of persons
passed to piew It. The temper of the
people seemed not so much to wreak
vengeance upon toe lifeless form, but
to personally assure themselves that
it really was the body of Frank.
Forty policemen were on guard at the
undertaker's establishment, and a crowd
that blocked traffic atood for hours In
front of the pla'e. ' The body was shown
Just as it had been cut down from an
oak tree at Marietta, this morning.
Because of the Insistence of the people
to see the body, it had not been defi

plans first arranged could be carried out.
A member of the undertaking firm stated
positively late today that the body had
been secretly placed in a private home.
