Rivers Begin to Fall, but Communi
cation is Stopped.
Missoula, Mont., June H. Saturday
night at 0 o'clock the sun broke
through the clouds after 33 days of
rain and the rainfall, which had been
lessening since morning, ceas-d.
The rivers show a lower mark than
they did 24 hours ago and there is
hope that the worst is over. But
there has been great damage and it
may be days or weeks before railroad
traffic is resumed to the eastward.
All day Saturday Missoula was cut
ff from the outside world. Not until
night had there been wire communi
cation and it consisted of a single
line to the west and none to the east.
Saturday night and Sunday morning
the high water reached its maximum,
registering the highest mark ever
known in this country. All of the
city and county bridges arc out and
Missoula is divided into three dis
tricts, each of which is without com
munication with the outside. Three
large residences in the city went down
the river. Their occupants had been
warned and were out before the flood
struck. The big log-jam of the Black
foot Company has been held in place
and the great power dam owned by
. A. Clark is intact.
The damage to farms in the bottom
land will he great. The loss to the
city and county will run far into the
thousands and cannot be estimated
until the water down. The out
look toif'iy is encouiaging and it is
believed the crisis ha? been passed.

Portland, June 4. Governor Cham
berlain's plurality over Cake for
Uftited States senator will be about
700. He now has 1540. Complete
returns from a large number of coun
ties increase previous estimates. For
example. Malheur, which had prc-
iousiy been in the Chamberlain col
u;nn by 100, nearly doubles that plu
rality by giving him l'.iO, with five
small precincts still to hear from.
Cake's previous lead of 18 in Benton
county is cut down to eight, while in
Clatsop the full vote raises the Demo
crat's plurality from 300 to 357. Crook
county, too, gives Chamberlain a lead
of 224 over his competitor. The full
vote of Douglas shows that each sen
atorial candidate has 181)0 votes. If
this is correct, it shows a slight loss
to the Democratic candidate. Gilliam
county comes in vith only 20 for the
Republican nominee, while Lake,
hitherto in dispute, adds 70 to the
Chamberlain column. Lane county,
however, as the country precincts are
heard from, continues to add to the
Cake figures. In Wallowa county.
with 11 out of 20 precincts. Cake has
lead of 11.1, which will probably
reach 200. Marion, with every vote
counted, shows just 11 for Cake, while
Multnomah, with the count complete
and a total of more than 25,000 for
the two candidates, shows just S)!)l for
the governor.
Air. Lake has carried 19 counties
and Mr. Chamberlain 13, counting
Douglas a tie. The- state at large,
outside of Multnomah, on the vote so
far at hand, has given Chamberlain a
plurality of 632. Seventeen counties
out of 33 are complete, and most of
the other are practically complete.
It is not probable that the final re
turns will make a difference of more
than 100 votes in Governor Chamber
lain's plurality one way or the other.
Hawley, Republican, is elected to
congress in the first district by 15.000
or more, and Ellis. Republican, by
15,000 or more in the second district.
Bean, Republican, for supreme judge,
has a very large vote, having no op
nosition, while Bailey. 'Republican, for
food and dairy commissioner, wins by
23,000 to 30.000. Campbell. Republi
can, is successful for railroad commis
sioner in the first district, and Aitchi
son, Republican, for railroad commis
sioner, for the second district, has
5000 or more plurality.
Fifty-two members of the legisla
ture are for Statement No. 1. includ
ing Kay of Marion and Boncbrike of
Benton, who are pledged conditional
ly. A majority of the legislature is 40.

Long Stretches of Track Washed Out

Still Continues Many Passengers
Marooned on Trains In Out-of-the-Way
Missoula, Mi nt . June 0 At 5 o'clock
1st eevening the flood situation in west
ern Montana was growing more serious
;ch minute. Helena is cut off from
the outside world. She is without rail
way, telegraph or telephone communica
tion, l or a short tune in the afternoon
there was a telephone connection, and
at the time it was learned that all of
the stream in Helena and vicinity are
overflow ing, and that there has been
much damage to farms and consider
able Ess of livestock.
The Cireat Northern's branch lines
arc out ot service, and the mam line
in northern Montana is cut in several
places. The first train started eastward
out of Spokane over the Great Northern
is now tied up. There is no communi
cation either by rail or telegraph.
All streams continue to rise. The
Big Black foot river is nearly its high
est flixid mark.
The Northern Pacific has lost sev
eral miles of track east of here during
the day. At Bonita. Nimrod and Bear-
mouth the telegraph operators have
been compelled to leave their posts,
Iriven out by the rising waters. At
Garrison nearly all the residents have
lied from their homes and are camped
upon the hills in the rain.
None of the dams on the river have
given way, though the power dam
iwned by ex-Senalor William A. Clark,
alxne Missoula, is reported to be in a
ci it ical condition.
Yesterday afternoon the Northern Pa
cific released by wagon transfer 200 of
ihe passengers that have been marooned
east of here. Th will be sent to Spo
kane on a made-up train.
The damage to the new roadbed of
the St. Paul line between Missoula
and Butte will not fall short of a mil
lion dollars, and it is becoming greater
all the time.
The Northern Pacific has assembled on
this division all of the piledrivers from
the west that it can get; it has taken
from its own western 01 vision and has
orrowed from oilier roads. The fight
against the water is being carried on by
10,000 men, but the water is gaining
steadily, and the rain continues to fall
in torrents. The Missoula river at this
ilace is but a few feet below the high
st mark ever registered. The expensive
city bridges are ' in danger, and are
guarded to prevent their use, so danger-
)iis are they considered.
West of here the Nort'ir-n Pacific
ha no trouble as vet.
At midnight the Northern Pacific has
surrendered the fight against the water
east of Missoula for the present. Un-
ess the ram stop soon, there will be
very little left of 130 miles of the most
expensive on the line. 1 wo tug
teel bridges have been washed out, but
t is not tuiderstood that they are de
I lie serious feature of the situation is
the fact that the high water has ex
tended west of Missoula, and is attack
ing the track between Missoula and the
west end f the stale. The Idaho di
vision has sent a big force of men over
to help in the fight on the west end.
