KAISER BORROWS TROW
WILL FORTIFY AGAINST
THE GERMAN SOCIALISTS.
Proposed That a Lake Island Near
Berlin Be Converted Into a Fortress
and Made the Emperor's Summer
Berlin, Aug. 17. The Verwaerts
today states that tho reactionary ad
visers of the Kaiser lecommonded
him to purchase the Island of Pichel
Bwordor, In a lake a few miles west
of Berlin, us tbe site for a new Impe
rial residence. The palace, accord
ing to the plans, will be strongly for
tified and special roads be made from
the military barracks to the shores
of the lake, so It will be possible to
concentrate lor the protection of the
kaiser In an emergency.
The Verwaerts says the scheme Is
the outgrowth of the recent demon
stration of the Increasing strength of
hte socialists. While every socialist
leader has und does protest against j
violent revolutionary measures, and
repudiates all hints toward violence,
the kaiser Is known to bo under a ,
violent tension of feelings, which
some attribute to excitement on ac-
count of tho success of the socialists, j
as he is extremely hitter toward'
them. . . , i '

OF SEVEN BRIDGES ONLY
ONE IS LEFT STANDING.
Tnousands Again Driven From Their
Homes in the Bottoms Epidemics
Have Made Their Appearance and
the Danger from That Source Is
Greater Than In June.
Kansas City, Aug. 17. Tho James
street wagon and car bridge went out
this morning, making three that have
been swept away by tho present
flood. Tim new gas mains and tele
phone cables went with tlio structure,
All tho other bridges aro greatly en
dangered, and the only means of
communication between the two
cities Is by boat.
The Kaw lt(cr is still rising nt
the, rate of an inch and a half per
hour. All the flats and the west bot
toms are under water, and nt least
4,000 people have been driven out of
the homes which they havo only re
cently been able to make habitable,
following the Hood of last May.
Incipient typhoid has made Its ap
pearance, and medical authorities aro
agreed that the Imminence of various
epidemics resulting from Hood pollu
tion is much greater than at any time
during June and July. The uld that
was subscribed during and following
the May ,llood is practically exhaust
ed, and the fleeing people from tho
low grounds are already a great bur
den upon the hospitable denizens of
the higher grounds. Tho utter de
struction of so many cottage and
cabin homes during May resulted in
thousands of the poorer jieople being
quartered in barns, stables, attics and
snare rooms ever since, and those
who are being driven from their
homes now ate added to what was
ulieady a congested condition of all
Rains in the Interior or Kansas
continue without cessation almost.
The greatest danger now confronting
the district is tho Inevitable rise re
sulting from the excessive rains along
the upper Blue and Republican rivers
in Southern Nebraska Saturduy and
yesterday. This Hood water cannot
leach here before Weduesdny, and
the Kaw mouth Is lis only exit.
