Joliet, Hls., July 6. - Heavy rains have forced the Desplaines river over the embankments on sections 17 and 18 of the dniinage channel, and all pits where excavating is beirig done are several feet under water. The flood will practically stop all work on the Heldmaier & Neu section, north oi Jackson street, for several days. All dump-car tracks on the Gahan & Bryne section are under water and nothing much can be done until high waters recede.
