Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1890, Trenton, New Jersey vni. NO. ANAVALANCHEOFWAlER Forty Persons Swept to Death at Prescott, Ariz. IT WAS LIKE JOHNSTOWiVb FLOOD Two Dams Burst, Hurling the Water from a Gigantic Reservoir luto the Haifttayampa Hirer A Valley Suddenly Trangfoiraed Into a Roaring Torrent. PRKRCOII, Ariz., Feb darm of the Waluut Grove Water Storage company, together with new flume, fifteen miles long, were washed out at 2 o'clock Sunday moiiimg, Foi ty persons are known to hare lost their lives, and the property on which the company spent is com- pletely wrecked Great fears are enter- tained for the safety of the town of Wick enburg, situated on the river thirty miles below the dam ____ Partial List of the Dead Among those Inowu to have been drowned are H Boone and two daughters J Haincs, wife Mid four children. Mrs McCarthy, wife of a laborer a McMiller, laborer Joseph Reynolds, laborer John Silby, foreman of the flume gang Like the Johnstown Disaster The which formed the reservoir wai 110 feet long at base, 410 at the top, and was 120 feet high, the lake formed by it being two and a half miles long by three-quarters of a mile wide and 110 test ckep Recent heavy rnin and snow storms had caused the tributary to the reservoir to over flow their banks, and the null of water was BO great that an immense figure was torn about midway of the first and smaller ot the two dams. The fissure formed an outlet for the water m the reservoir, which was hurlod up against the second rlnm with a momen turn nothing could resist. The great wall of masonry fell away before the rushing tor rent the waters spread over the valley, carrying death nnd destruction with them An Avalanehe of W ater The men-who worked on the Water com pany's flume had no thought of danger mid were sleeping quietly in their camps when the damn burst with a noise like the simul teneous explosion of a thousand cannons, the water was upon them Overwhelmed by AVftlnnphp nf water thpy wpro Rwppt away to death. The names of the workmen who lost their lives in this way cannot be uutirthe roH uf tup ujuipnnj s em ployes is called. The damn were built across the Hassa yampa river by the supply company two years ago Unusual care was taken in their connli uction and when completed they were considered strong enough to withstand the severest strain What wan Wlokenburg's Fate? Wickenbnrg is thirty miles Jbelow Pros cott, on the Hassayampa, and the flood probably struck that place in less than an hour and a hnlf after the dam burst Mes sengers mounted on fast horcoa were hurried out in the direction of the doomed town, but it is hardly possible that they could have reached the place before the flood, as they were compelled to make a wide detour to escape the raging waters themmlves. None of theoe messengers have since return ed, und it is possible that in order to reach the endangered town some of them have chowm the nearnar route and boon caught In the flood. Unless the people of Wicken- bnrg received some warning of the impend ing danger, the loss of life to be reported from there will be appalling, as the town is situated right upon the bank of the river Meagre Detail! from wlckenburg. Another dispatch says. "The number of people drowued at Wiokenburg by the buistlngof the across the Hissayampa river, near here, is not definitely known A number of honeps were certainly carried away, and many were .drowned, but owing to the lack of .telegi aphic communication the result of the disaster cannot be as certnmed. The ominous rush of water from the broken dam gave a warning to the people of the valley that many took ad- vantage of and had time to escape Rain had been falling heavily for several days past, and the dam was split from top to bottom by the force of the waters. It is thought that the number drowned is very gi eat. The property loss is im mange." Dae to Criminal Carelessness. SAJ. FRANCISCO, Feb. Engineer Luther Wagner has given some details of the con- alrucuon of the great storage dam. across hassayampa river, which show that disaster, like that at Johnatowu, Pa., was, according to him, due to the carelessness and meanness of the New York corporation that built it Wagner was called in to report on the dam about eighteen months ago It was to have been faced with stone fourteen feet thick at the base and four feet at the top, and filled with loose rock and marin water tight with wooden sheathing. It was about half done when VVsguer Inspected it, and he found the stone boon filled in carelessly and was high in thn center, making the structure unstable The junction of sheath- i ig and bed iook was intended to be secured by thicjc layers of Fortland cement, w ork was not well done because of the cost of getting cement to the Ihe Engineer's waging Unbended. f bus a dangeYuiu crevice was formed at the base of the dam and leakage was heavy, b nt n" iirtmf certain it it r I r Hone hnl- the i Inwiii of Ale, Brown I -it TKKNTON, MONDAY AKTKKNOON, FWKKUAKY 24. 1890.
