Trinidad, Colo., Oct. 3. A teriific
flood struck the city of Trinidad and
the whole valley along the Las Animaa
river, today, devastating a wide section
and causing a money loss which a
present cannot be estimated, but which
may reach several hundred thousands of
Every bridge in the city of Trinidad
is out, the Santa Fe station is demol
ished, all of the railroads are tied up,
and the telephone and telegraph services
completely suspended. More than SO
city blocks in the residence and busi
ness sections were two to four feet under
water along the rvier
So far as known at noon no lives
were lost, but there were many narrow
The flood was caused by the heavy
rain which has been falling for two
davs. At 8 o'clock last night the
storm assumed cloudburst proportions,
and at 2 o'clock this morning the Las
Animas river went over its banks.
At 3:30 it was impossible to get
within a block of the river bed at any
point, and Commercial street was flood
ed for three blocks in the heart of the
business district. Meantime the elec
trie light and gas plants had been flood
ed. and the city was in complete dark
Hundreds of citizens thronged the
streets on the edge of the submerged
district carrying lanterns and doing
their best to provide those di iven from
their homes with shelter.
Warning of the flood was given when
the river left its hanks by revolver shots
and the ringing of the Are alarm, fol
lowed by the blowing of all the loco
motive and ehop whistles in town
Citizens upon rafts made of sections of
sidewalks paddled through the streets,
rescuing families who were in danger.
The new Bacca hotel, a two story
structure just reaching completion at
cost of $20,000 on the river bank,
was destioyed. The water then ate its
way through 50 feet of the ground to
the Santa Fe depot, which was carried
The city is divided by the Las
Animas river, which is spanned by six
wagon bridges. All of the bridges
were washed out and many residents
were nnable to reach their homes or to
communicate with their families, the
telephone system being wrecked.
TO SETTLE WATER SUIT.
Effort Is Being Made to Annex Part
of Kansas to Colorado.
Pueblo, Colo., Oct. 3. An effort at
solution of the Kansas-Colorado
water suit is in pr igress, and if the
efforts of those most interested in the
caee are scceesful a strip of the western
portion of Kansas, about 150 miles
wide, will be annpxed to the state of
Colorado, and the litigation now be
fore the supreme court at Washington
wijl be thrown out.
Politicians in both Kansas and Colo
rado are working for the passage ol a
bill through the legislatures of both
states whereby tfle western portion of
Kansas can be taken into Colorado.
This, it is thought by those who have
given the irrigation question much
tudy.will solve the difficulty, and both
states will be benefitted to a great ex
tent. L. P. Worrten, of Syracuse,
Kas., and C. C. Kennison, of Garden
City, Kas., a candidate for representa
tive from that county are in Pueblo in
the interest of the plan.
' It would settle the water question
in Western Kansas forever and the suit
now in toe courts wouiu be dropped as
there would no longer be any reason
for continuing it" said Mr. Wordon to
day. Both Mr. Worden and Mr. Kennison
appeared before the government com
mission when it was in session here,
and are thoroughly familial with the
situation. They say they are supported
by practically every resident of West
Inventor Dies a Charity Patient.
New York, Oct. 3, Once wealthy
and with a host of friends among prom
inent and wea'tby men in the coun
try, Charles Y. Yea ton, the inventor,
is dead at the home of incuiables, a
charity patient. Paralysis, from
which he had suffered two years, caused
his death. Yea ton invented a number
of machines, among which was a type
setting machine, tho first ever offered
for sala. He enjoyed an intimate ac
quaintance with President Andrew
Johnson, who offered him a diplo
matic poet at St. Petersburg.

Absence of News Prom Port Arlhur
Alarms the Slavs.
St. Petersburg, Sopt. 29. The entiro
absence of news from Port Arthur, it
is feared, indicates a closer blockado
there. Hitherto, dispatches from
General Stoessel have been coming
through semi-wecKly. Tho admiralty
has not received anv details of the re
ported sea fight off Aniva, at tho south
eastern extremity of Sahalin. Tho
Vladivostok equadion, it is understood
is still in the harbor. Tho cannonad
ing at Aniva was probably a Japanese
attack on blockado runners.
A telegram received here from Bat
oum reporting that reserves are being
transported along tho Caucasian coast
brings the first intimation that troops
are beme mobilized there. There are
only two army corps in tho Caucasus
and one of them has apparently been
ordered to tho Far East.
Prince Sviatopolk-Mirelcy was re
ceived in audience yesterday by tho
emperor. The princo will assume
charge of tho ministry of tho interior
The latest developments in tho situ
ation at the front is tho definite estab
lisbment of the fact that Field Marshal
Ovama has now begun to move up his
left. General kuropatkin's report
shows that the Japanese have reached
Davan, on the west bank of the Liao
river. A considerable concentration oi
Japanese is observed at Sianchan, on
the Hun river, 35 miles southwest of
Mukden, and Japaneso cavalry is mass
ing in the vicinity of the Pu river
The latter is a tributary of the finn
river, which crosses tho line of railway
midway between Tie pass and Mukden
and ma; furnish a natural line of ad
net from the went.
Oyama's armies now apparently cov
er a Irpnt of bU miles lor enveloping
movements. His wings are extended
to the northeast and west of Mukden
Thus far the Russians have found little
strength of pressure from the Japanese
center. Ovama see in a to be moving
with great deliberation, probably gath
ering Btrength for a rapid advance of
both wings when an attempt is made
to close the net.
Although the imaginary line connect
ing the extreme Japanese advance and
west of Mukden still passes ten miles
below that city, it is evident that the
fate of Mukden cannot long be delayed
If General Kuropatkin intends to try
to hold the city fighting on his flanks
will begin almost immediately.

by day the remoter positions of tho be

me last oi tne umnese to arrive
from Port Arthur roport a still further
advance by the Japaneso. They assert
that several of the most important po
sitions held by tho Russians, farthest
from tho central fortress have boon
taken by the Japanese, tho latter in
dieting considerable loss upon tho Rue-
8JrXJ!& for Price List and Discounts. Next Door to Landoffice
with the help of mines, made their
way within the fortifications. The
Rueeians were taken by surprise and
were able to offer, little resistance.
Finding they were unable to hold thoir
own against the Japanese tho Russians
retreated, leaving their dead and wound
ed behind them.
When the Japanese attack wag dis
cerned by tho o her Russian forts they
at once opened fire, and at last ac
counts this was still being maintained.
It is considered doubtful whether tho
Japanese will be able to retain posses-
nion of their newly acquired positions.
The greater portion of the Japanese
fleet has returned to tho Japanese base i
in the Eliot islaudB, the Japanese com
mander having become convinced that
the Russiun vessels within tho haibor
of Port Arthur are almost incapable of
further resistance and of making any
sortie into the open sea.
