All of Sat- urday night'and all day Sunday they were moving to higher ground. Back' water extends far up to the north side of .the city, whilst on the south many houses are submerged. On the south and in front of the city there is one vast ocean thirty and forty feet deep, and it is still rising and will so oontinue until; at Tuesday. Its like has never been seen. Trains on all 'the the Texas Pacific, the Missouri Pacific; Fe and the Greenville, .were not running west, north or south of the city Sunday. Washouts are reported all along their lines, but the'worst are immediately around' the city. Gangs of men are watching the bridges over the Trinity river and keeping oft the drift The crest of the waves lacks six feet of the flooring of the bridges in the city. News from the surrounding country is bad. Small bridges have been destroyed by the deluge; indeed, few are left. FIRE, GAS AND OEATff. Fhree Men Ferltii (u the No lions of Burning Mine. HANCOCK, Mich., April three o'clock Sunday morning flames were dis- eovereM bursting from shaft No. 3 of the They were partially ektiriguishe'd and Joseph Herbert, John Thomas, John Rbwe and Thomas Bell volunteered to go through the .smoke that'filled the'cutting in search of John Williams, a .pump boy. Bell was the last man to go down. As be reached the ladder he yelled to the others: "Come back, the gas down there is too thick." There, was no answer and it was evident that the thi-ee miners had been suffo- cated. Tying a scarf about his head, John Pentecost went down alone through the gas that extinguished his lamp. He found Tbomas with his cloth- ing burned off and his legs frightfully roasted. Rowe was dead and Herbert nearly so, but will probably recover. Thomas will die. The fire in., the lower tba die out until in the afternoon, when Williams' body was .found SCO feet from tho surface, ap- parently drowned by the floods of water that were poured in. The fire is sup- :posed to have been caused by the boys entering a gas pocket with a lighted candle, although there are suspicions of incendiarism. >NBM Stem Bfarlkm Stum Hard and Urfe M Roeki Site ifewm OB the City. BIG BBIBBBT FUND. HONORED THEIR LEADERS. ttrtat by April city waj Tisited Sunday afternoon about fail o'clock by hail of a size and destructlvw power never before seen, in this city. The bail was not like the snow-coated, hail of commerce, but was plain, bard ice froten through and through, clear as crystal sad solid as a rock. It weni through thick panes of glass as if they were-tissue paper, and the' amount oi damage done by it can only be figured up the broken panes counted the glass-setters' bills are Tne losses will run up into the yTfce hail stones were like rocks, some of them ragged and sharp on the edges as steel blades. Hens' eggs were nothing to them in size. Many of them were .as large as a man's fist, and as they came down they sounded like so many cannon balls falling on the help- less earth. The storm came .from the west, was local in its character, and swept to the east with a rattle like heavy musketry, frightening people out of their wits, making some of the superstitious think that the day of judgment had come, and hitting those who were on the streets many hard knocks and driving them into places of shelter. All orer the city the damage was heavy, particularly in the way of broken glass. No glass that met the full force of the hail was strong enough to stand the force of the cobble- stone-like blocks that came out of the sky. Charles street windows looked as if they had been on the battlefield, and in the houses on Mount Vernbn Place the damage was Tery considerable and the alarm anttSuaL In the suburbs the rain, wind'and hail did even more se- vere damage thin in the "city. Walls were swept down, houses unroofed and the amount of glass smashed and other damage done was almost incalculable. SAVED MANY LIVES. SAFE IS PORT.

NKW YORK, April in the five- story flat house, No. 2560 Eighth ave- nue, early Sunday morning, caused a panic among the twelve families occu- pying the building, whose escape by the stairway was Ot-t off by the flames. Sc-melescaped .by- way-r-of --the --roof others became blockaded on a defective fire escape. Daniel Rossler, one of the latter, obtained a rope and lowered the women and children by it to tbe street. The men then climbed down the same way. Rossler was the last, and by this time the rope was worn away and broke, letting Rossler fall to the pavement, but he was not badly hurt. But for his coolness and presence of mind several lives might have been lost. The build- ing was damaged to the extent of 000. Xeetioc of EaKlneeri. OSTVECO, N.
