Considerable Damage
Done by Deluge When
Rivers and Creeks
Become Swollen
Tremendous Else as River and Canal
Are Made One at Beading—Co
dorus Creek Maroons North Part of
York City
By Asuociated Press.
Philadelphia, Jan. 13.—Reports re
ceived to-day from the storm-swept, sec
tions of Pennsylvania ami New Jersey
show that considerable minor damage
was done by lwgh wind while in many
places the heavy rain caused rivers and
I creeks to overflow. The weather to
; day was clearing and the high water
i was rapidly receding.
The Schuylkill river was high from
' its source in the anthracite coal re
' gions to Philadelphia where it empties
; into the Delaware. In many places it
[ was out of its banks causing consider
| able damage. Textile mills along th«i
i Schuylkill in this city were closed be
cause of water in their basements.
Snow Impedes Railroad Traffic
Iu the northern parts of Pennsylva
nia railroad traffic was impeded by doep
snow. Exposed places at Atlantic City
were again damaged by high water
I and severe gales. The Music Hall on
! the ocean end of the Steel Pier, which
I was wrecked during the storm last
' month, was further damaged to-day
when high seas crashed against it.
Portions of the boardwalk south of At
i lantic City were damaged and higher
j water flooded a part of the upper end
of the city at the inlet.
The derailment of the Wnshingtnn-
N'ew York Express at Perryvi'lle, Md ,
last night resulted in the death of the
j engineer and injuring of the fireman
| was due to the locomotive hdtting the
. roof of a box car which had been ripped
I off by the wind tfn minutes before the
I passenger train came along.
Rise of 12 Feet in Schuylkill
! Reading, Pa., Jan. 13. — night's
! heavy rain was followed early to-day
by a tremendous rise in the Schuylkill.
I This morning it was 12 feet above low
water mark and had thus reached the
: danger point. The tributaries of the
J river are overflowing their banks and
| a large body of water is pouring down
j the valley. The canal and river are
| one. The local weather bureau does
not 'believe, however, that it will go
much higher. Considerable minor dam
: age has been done along the river.
At t'he height of the storm late last
night, the roof of a freight car in a
' southbound train on the Reading rail
way was blown clean off while it was
passing lxirane. It crashed against tho
j wires of the company and put all of
| them out of business. Linemen were
I hurried to the scene and soon man
; aged to get several of thorn in shape.
Trolley Traffic Suspended
j York, Pa., Jan. 13.—Thirty hours of
! continuous rain culminated in a flood
here this morning from the Codorus
! creek, bisecting the city. Streets and
j cellars were under water in the low
i lying sections adjacent to t'he stream,
j Anxiety was tense just before day
I break when the rain ceased, but soon
i after 6 o'clock the flood reached its
i crest, ten feet above low wate-r mark.
; For several hours North York was cut
off from the remainder of the city, trol
ley traffic being suspended to that
j suburb. Great property damage was
caused by floods in various parts of
York county.
Potomac River Rises Twenty Feat
| Hagerstowu, Md., Jan. 13.—Wash-j
) ington county is in serious danger of
j great damage by floods, as the heavy
j downpour of rain the past two days
j has caused all the streams to become
very high anrl in several places they
] are overflowing.
Prom Williamsport this morning
comes the report that the Potomac has
risen twenty feet and is still rising. The
Cooococheagne creek has also risen
while smaller streams have become
raging torrents. To add to the high
waters there is a great amount of ice
at various places along the streams and
if this 'break® loose the danger will be
considerably greater.
Storm's Damage In New England
Boston, Jan. 13.—The storm which
reached New England yesterday attain
ed its maximum strength off tile south
east coast at dawn to-day, causing mucft
damage in Rhode Island, Connecticut
and Southeastern Sum
mer residences on Massachusetts ibay,
from Sandwich to C«pe Ann, were bad
ly damaged. Damage was reported also
at Nantucket, Cohanset and other
points on the south shore.
London Earthquakes
(London has not altogether escaped
the ravages of earthquakes. In Febru
ary and (March of 1750 l<ondoners
were startled out of their wits by a
terrific rfhock. The people were" BO
alarmed that thousands spent the night
parading the streets in a starte of fran
tic terror, aud Hyde Park was crowd
ed with campers out, the more daring
wlhiling away the ihours by playing
cards by candlelight.

Heaviness on Rumors From Abroad
3.1/ Associated Press.
Now YorK, .lan. 13. —Wall Street—
Metal shares supplied the bulk of tho
early trailing in stocks to-day, mostly
at advances. Amalgamated, Utah and
Inspiration coppers recorded gains pre
sumably on the increase of home and
foreign demand. Tho list displayed some
uncertainty with little or no change in
favorite issues. Among the railways
Northern Pacific, Atcihison pfd. ami
Western Maryland rose fractionally
with like declines in Union Pacific pfd
and .Seaboard Air I/inc. Rumely went
to a new low price and Motor Issues
yielded slightly. Dealings were far be
low t'h© preceding session both as to
volume and scope.
Dullness was the most characteristic
feature of to-day's early session, tho
'business olf that period being los.< than
half of that transacted yesterday,
j Prominent stocks assumed a more ir
| regular tone, Steel, Heading and! Union
