Seattle, Nov. 16. A heavy rainfall Wednesday, 2.41 Inches In four hours, and a Chinook wind which melted recent fresh snows ln the Cascade mountains, coming simultaneously, are the causes of the almost disastrous floods In the history of the Puget sound region. . The valleys of the Whits, Duwamlsh, Cedar, Green, Stuck, Black and Puyallup rivers ane under wster, flooding 2(H) square miles of territory. This includes practically every acre of lowland lying back of the eastern shores of the sound and extending from Seattle to Tacoma. The power plant at Electrine.ia submerged, and Seattle and Tacoma are dependent on their local auxiliary stations for power to move street cars and provide electric lights.

Six persons have been drowned, o the north the Skagit river is on a rampage, and railroad traffic ln that 'direction la at a standstill. The greatest loss by the streams to the north has been done to the lumbering Interests, where millions of feet of logs and shlngl bolt have been carried Into the sound and out to sea. High titles combined with the floods have converted all the river deltas which are great tracts of fertile farms, into muddy torrents, hundreds of farm houses and villages are submerged to the second stories and many persons are homeless, he loss to the Northern Pacific alone will reach (150,000, and the total loss on the district will run a half million.
