More About the Sioslaw Flood.
A correspondent writing from Point Ter
race, on the Kiu.law, under date of Feb I'll),
Tho greatest llood within Ihe memory of
any man, either whito man or Indian, ha
recently visited lh; 'alley carrying death
aud destruction iu its course. Tho recent
heavy rainn, accompuuiid by warm south
east winds, melted the deep snow oc the
mountains so rapidly that the small stream
were soon twooleu lo mighty torrent rush
ing into Ihe river below. They were looti
full and overlluwing their banks, covering
the valleys iu every direction. As the flood
increased great drills came down from the
upper river, apparently tho accumulation of
niauy years, taking everything In their
course, suapplug oft' large trues, uprooting
others, carrying away bridge, honse, hay
alack, barn aud every moveable thing in
their resistless courso. On Ihe lower Sius
law the river with very few exception
spread from mouutaiu to mountain on either
side, foimiug oue vast lake from Neely' to
Floreuce. House cousidercd far above
high water mark wero standing iu from two
to ten feet of water. Families all along the
line wire compelled lo eeek safely in Ihe ad
juceut hills aud mountuin; some had shelter
other uouo save what some spreading tree
or fallen log afforded. A great .leal ot pro
perty was destroyed, fences all carried away,
much slock drowned, and million of feet of
saw log were carried to tho beach or out
into the sea. Hut all other losses siuk iuto
insignificance when we consider the losa of
life, A terrible laud slide occurred at the
home of Mr. O. M. Andrews, just above the
bead of tide, on Monday moruing Feb. 3d.
Tho family of Mr. 'Andrews consisting of
his wife, a duttghler and two sons, were
sheltered in Ihe bnm the house having been
carried away the day before, when about 3
o'clock the slide commenced. They rushed
from tho barn but tbo eldest boy, W'urren,
wa caught under a log and while his father
was trying to help him out Iho sliding mas
carried them both into tho liver. The other
three, Mrs. Andrews, Miss Ruby and
Johnny, attempted to run but wero caught
in tho overwhelming mas aud cither
buried iu it depth or carried iutn Ihe river
and swept out to sea. No traco of either
havo beeu found yet, and very little nope re
mains now that theru ever will la). Mr.
Audrew waa curried nearly to tho npnimitu
bank, aud by an almost huperbnuan effort
succeeded tu getting on a log and wa
whirled down Ihe current with Ihe lloating
drill. Warren swam a tart of Ihe lime
underwater bull'etiug wilh thu drift aud
almost blinded, but Uurdly got an to a small
log nud started down thu river. IU wua a
short distance ahead of urn father ami a part
of thu time in hearing distance. They both
culled aloud a they passed lli various'
houses, but iu mnny cases thu facilities wero
gone and other had no boats or their bout
were swamped. Dn and on they wero car.
ried through tho driving ruin and darkness,
almost uaked, uud iu (but perilous position
until they reached 1'oinl Terrace seven mile
from Ihe head of tide. Thero Mr. Keunis
ton wa on watch, flu nt ouoe gave the
alarm aud two potties started at once to Ihe
rescue, Messrs. David and George Rrudloy
from Mr. Stiles', aud Cecil and Marion
Sweet from Sweet liros'. They followed on
a fast as they could in tho daiknes and
drift, aud tho Messrs. Hradley overtook War
ren about two mile lolow. He soon got
him into the bout, the little Iioxy, aud a few
moments later the Messrs. Sweet rescued
Mr. Audrow. They were luken to tho hos
pitable home of Mr, Fred Mason where
ossille wa done tor their com-
fort. Mr. Andrew was unhurt save a few
scratches, but Warren wag bruised Internally
and on foot van badly crushed, but uutlcr
the kind care and nurmng of Mrs. Mason be
i rapidly recovering. Mr. Andrew and hi
son merit the sincere sympathy of th entire
oommuiiity. 1 heir once comtortaoio noiue
together with garden and fine young orchard
is entirely obliterated; the family circle
rudely shattered at one full blow and in a
moments time. The sudden death ot Mis
Ruby seems especially sad, as she waa iu a
short time to have beeu married to Mr. Geo,
E. Hradley, a youug man in every way
worthy of her a she waa of him. They were
looking forward to a long life of happiness
together, but it has been ordered otherwise
aud he is left to mourn.
The water are now back lo their usual
bound and the resident are busy repairing
the damage done to their property fur a
possible. A good deal of stock ba beeu lost
and more will die for want of feed. A great
quantity of drift ha floated in on the beach
below Floreuco, trees, saw logs, barn, old
bouses, fence rails, trnuks, bedding, aud
rticlcs of all kinds. Some aro beiug re
claimed but a great many are iu a ruined
condition. The Lake creek bKJgs is tied up
uear Floreuce. E. F. Stiles, ot Point Ter
race, wa caught in the ilorm on bi way
horn from Eugene, and though only ten
mile from the head of tide wa unable to
get bom till the water went down, when
tie crossed over Tildeu on a narrow ledge
clinging lo another narrow ledge above. Mr.
Wells snd son took him aoros Lake crock in
their thin canoe, and be reached home on
Friday night Feb. 7th, just sixteen days
from the lime he left Eugene.
A good many slide have occurred, but
owing lo Ihe impassable state of the roads
the particulars have not been learned ex
cept in a few eases. The Wells school house
was shored off by one, also Green Gay'
house near Walton, but no loss of life is re
ported. The Imd.r of the young num. Mr.
Turner, who was drowned whil crossing th
Wild Cat, has been recovered. Snow fell
here last night to Ihe dpth of six Inches,
but Ihe sun 1 shining now snd we trust that
the worst ia ovi r. One ueh flood is enough
