COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., j May 31.—(^)—Twenty-four persons! w ere reported dead and missing to- j day as flood burdened mountain! streams lost their thunderin, menace of death and destruction. ;  Hundreds of persons were homeless and the property damage in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and two small villages north of here was' estimated at hundreds of thousands | of dollars.  Night of Terror  Emerging from a night of terror and its most disastrous flood In 15 years, the harassed area took stock by daylight and saw that this eastern slope city was the focal, point of the waters’ attack. Homes were swept away, highway and railway bridges gone, and communication, power and transportation paralyzed.  Pueblo, scene of the 1920 flood disaster, escaped with some property damage but no deaths Denver’ fears that turbulent Cherry' creek would rampage throufli the city as it did two years ago was dissipated this morning as the crest of a black torrent roared into the South Platte river without floodlitg the city.  Greatest concern today was centered on the still isolated cotnmunl-ty of Kiowa and its neighbor, Elbert. from which little news had emerged, but which suffered the brunt of two huge torrents originating in a cloudburst on the crest of a watershed which sent part of the deluge down each side of the drainage.  Bridges Wrecked  Efforts were being made today to reach Kiowa by airplane, by horseback and on foot. Bridges on all roads approaching the village were wrecked. There Ls no nearby landing field for airplanes.  Twelve persons, 10 of them unidentified, were on the death list here. The known dead are Mrs. Emma B. Clark, 5«, and Lee Clmino, 35. of Ivy wood, a suburb.  Five other deaths were charged to floods which swept northeastern Colorado earlier in the week  Six persons were reported mia^ing here.  They were Mr, and Mrs. Herman M West and their two daughters. Ksther Towsley, and Mrs. Oscar White, 30.  Pears for the safety of passengers of two automobiles reported overturned in wai.houu. near Glcndo, Wyo., were dispelled this morning. J. A. Oerl, telegraph ojierator at Onn Junction, four miles from the point where the cars left the road, said the machines were enveloped in tlie Jlood but the occupants found refuge on an l.sloated hill.  Fown Lnder Water  The la.st word from Kiowa. Colo, indicated about half of tJie town was under water  At Elbert, a score of buildings— busines.s establishments and residents—were reported washed down the torrents. Whether there had been any Iosa of life there remained undetermined.  An accurate e.stimate of the toll of life taken here ye.sterday may  Kee FLOODH. Page 13. ( ol.

The Weverhaeuser interests are centered in Tacoma and St. Paul.  Although Alvin Karpis and his henchman, Harry Campbell, arc fugitives from the Bremer case,  Tacoma authoritle.s apparently took little .stock In the statement of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence O. Reed, Tacoma apartment managers, that a man resembling Volney DavU. of the Karpis mob. rented an apartment here Saturday and left, with a woman, a few hours later.  With the Lindbergh law’; -seven "days of grace" expiring at noon todays the department of Justice agents were prepared to :ep into the Weyerhaeuser ca.se and act.  Ü. S. attorney J.
