SEVEN DEAD AND EIGHT MISSING
Heavy Rains and Melting Snow
Mountains Turn Missouri Val
ley Into Vast Soa.
Kansas City, July 8. Swollen by
unprecedented rain and by melting
snows from the Rocky mountains, the
rivers of the Lower Missouri valley
are out of their banks, causing damage
in many parts of Missouri and Kansas.
The results of the flood up to a late
hour tonight were as follows:
Train No. 5, of the Atchison, Tope
ka & Santa Fe railway, which left
Kansas City at 9 :25 a. m. for Denver,
left the track at Pomona, Kan. Of the
10 coaches which made up tho train, a
baggage and threo day coaches left the
track and slid into 18 feet of water,
A telephone message from Pomona,
Kan., at midnight said the four-year
old daughter of Mrs. Carrie Rose, of
Chicago, had been drowned in tho
wreck, lhree hundred other persons
who had taken refuge on top of the an
affected coaches were rescued by boats
and quartered at nearby farmhouses.
Pomona is almost completely inun
dated, the Marias des Cygnes river at

umt point, neing mree mues wiae. a
relief train was sent from Ottawa to
night with food and other supplies for
the passengers, who were said to have
climbed on top of the coaches for refuge
from the rising waters.
In Kansas City the situation is
threatening. In tho bottoms in the
western section where are located tba
stockyards, wholesale warehouses and
manufacturing plants, the waters from
the confluence of the Missouri and Kan
sas rivers are lapping the danger line.
Pattensburg,- a town in Missouri 50
miles north of Kansas City, is ten feet
underwater, and its 1,500 inhabitants
are in dire straits. Fifty row boats
were, put on a special train at Kansas
City this morning and hurried to the
scene. Later reports say that the ma
rooned citizens were all . removed to
higher ground without loss of life, but
that the property damage will be tre
mendous. At Chilicothe, Ma, on the Grand
river, six men were swept from a bridge
this afternoon and were seen floating
down the stream. Whether they
reached shore or not was not learned.
The bridge was carried out when a
great wall of water six feet high swept
down both forks of the Grand river and
joined at Utica, continuing after that
as one great flood. The water spread
out all over the bottom lands and did
great damage to farms and crops in its

should demonstrate the sjipfii

of that route.
Northwest Wheat Crop Now Placed at
Portland, July 9. Estimates com
piled from data received from mors
vthan 850 of the principal wheat ata
tions of Oregon, Washington and Ida
ho, indicato tho 1909 wheat yield for
tho threo states to bo approximately
55,000,000 bushels, compared with 40,-
000,000 bushels last year, 60,000,000
bushels in 1907, and a fivo-yoar aver-
ago of 48,600.000.
Of tho threo states, Idaho has tho
best crop, with Washington showing
up exceedingly well, whilo Oregon, es
pecially in the river counties, suffered
from dry weather to such an extent
that tho damage could not all bo re
paired by the Into, rains.
Somo of tho poor yiolds in Oregon
have been offset in the totals by an
increased acreago in now territory.
Tho most noticeable increase of this
nntoro is along tho Wallowa extension
of tho O. R. & N.
Another locality in which new acre
age will aid in swelling tho totals is
tho Haystack and Bnkeoven country.
whero there is an Increaso of about 20
per cent in the acreage, with tho yield
about 10 par cent better than last year.
Sherman county is somewhat spot
ted, and early in tho season the outlook
was poor. 'Rains in tho latter part of
June helped, however, and thore will
bo a material increase over last year a
output. Conditions in Wasco are sira
liar to those in Sherman county.
Umatilla, the banner wheat county
of the Btate, is not coming up to its
usual standard. The light lands suf
fered by the dry weather early in the
season, and the showers that came
later wore not general throughout the
Along tho Arlington branch of tho
O. R. & N. the crop is light until Con
don is reached. Around Condon, how
ever, the outlook is far from eloomy.
With the exception of about 20,000
acres, which have been taken by
weeds, there will bo a pretty fair
Morrow county is not quite so good
as Gilliam, but there, as elsewhere in
the river counties, some very short
stalks of wheat are turning out well
union county has an excellent crop
and 40-buBbeI yields will not be uncom
mon around Elgin and Summerville.
The Willamette valley has ceased to
be a figure in tho export wheat mar
ket, but the yield ia an important fac
tor in the milling business.
Washington reports are uniformly
good. Walla Walla, with its nover
failing foothill land, promises an out
put of 4,500,000 -bushels. Barley is
also turning out well in this county,
and has made some inroads on the
Columbia and Garfield counties are
both expected to tum off record yields
of wheat and barley. This region was
favored with rain at a time when the
river counties in Oregon were missed.
Whitman, the banner wheat county
of all the Northwest, gives excellent
promire of breaking records, The acre
age is large and the crop conditions are
far above the average. Estimates run
from 9,000,000 to 12.000,000 bushels.
