Ice-Jam Stops the Flow of Niagara, and
Relic Hunters Revel.
Niagara Falls, March 26. The
American Falls is practically dry, and
for the first tlroo in 65 years people aro
able to walk about in tbo river bed.
Thousands bavo clambered over tho
rocks hunting for relics and souvenirs.
Great rocks never before seen are high
and dry, So llttlo water is flowing
over the American- Falls that mon In
high boots almost could hnvo crossed
at tho brink.
Tho extraordinary condition is due
to an ice jam up tho rlvor. Tbo ico
was drivon from Lnko Erie Into tbo
entrance to tbo Niagara and lodged in
tho shoalwator, shutting off tho flow
Into tho American channel. Tho
Horsoshoo Falls is not affected as much
as tho American. The river in the vi
cinity of tho Three Sister islands is
quite dry, and the center falls, between
Qoat and Luna, islands, is a skeleton of
itself. The conditions la likely to last
for aoveral days.
