brought into the coal trouble early to-day
when an attempt was made to murder
Alexander Williams nnd family at Trevor
ton nnd the Reading Railroad two miles
west of that place was blown up.
While the home of Williams was badly
damaged and the family shaken by the
explosion no one was Injured.
On the Reading a miners, accommoda

safely over a broken rail held by only a
fishplate. The roadbed had been tom up
Since the two outrages were committed

of clues to the Identity of the dynamiters,
but no arrests were made.
The reason for the dynamiting is sup
posed to be that the Kathryn colliery.

continued in operation. The plant is at
the extreme west end of the anthracite
A lot of the employees come from the
agricultural region adjoining the oolUery

Monday the Kathryn'a owners got enough
men together and put a lot of cut coal
through tho breaker and shipped it to
market. More cars were loaded with coal
on Tuesday and yesterday and shipped
over thn Reading road. Among men who
stayed at work was Williams. He is sup
posed to have inourred tho enmity of
union miners, as did the Reading Railroad
for supplying oars and hauling them away
from the mines.
Tho dynamiters put a charge under the
porch at the rear of the Williams home
and lighting the fuse fled. The explosion
blew a shanty attached to the house to
pieces and tore a hole in the side of the
residence. Some of the family were
thrown out of bed. The roar aroused the
neighborhood and people ran to the
rescue of Williams.
It Is supposed that after planting the
explosive at ti)e Williams home the dyna
miters put a charge on the railroad. The
railroad is known as the Herndon branch,
running from here to Herndon, twenty
miles; both passenger and freight trains
Tho first train out this morning was the
miners' accommodation, with few per
sons on board, excepting the crew. The
train runs to the Kathryn mine. As it
was proceeding tho engine suddenly
lurched as it struck the smashed rail.
The engineer brought the train to a stop
and the crew discovered what had oc
curred. News of the outrages excited much in
dignation at Treverton and this plaoe and
many miners denounced the acta. Tney
said they wanted the suspension to go
along' in peace.

MERCY TO WOMAN
To Jail With Her Baby Goes De
fendant in Italian Slan
TALE OF BROKEN MARRIAGE
Lawyers Plead In Valn
Ihn Woman Must Go
to Jail." '
Sheriff Harburger, n half dor.en of his
deputies, his counsel and part of his
clerical staff remained at tho office for
two hours after closing time last night
trying to induce one Italian woman to
show mercy to another who had slandered
I her, und who had been arrested because
I of her failure to pay a judgment of 11,050
in the slander suit. Finally they gave up
ami the woman who had been arrested
was sont to Ludlow street jail to remain
until sho can give ball in twice the amount
of tho judgment.
She is Mrs. Innocenza Perlatta Par la -grecco
of 214 Second avenue. She has
four children, the youngest 14 months
old and the oldest 18 years. She Is the
first woman to be sent to Ludlow street
jail in several years. Sheriff Harburger
arranged with Warden Johnson and Mrs.
Johnson to provide her with suoh com
forts as wero available, and permitted her
husband to bring tho baby to tho prison
to remain with its mother.
The plaintiff is Miss Fannie Sammarco
of 303 East 108th street, who makes plumos,
nnd is fairly well to do. Miss Sammaroo
alleged in her slander suit that Mrs. Farla
grecco had said things that caused a young
man to whom sho was engaged to refuse
to marry hor. Miss Sammaroo sued tor
t l.iKio damages in tho City Court and got
Judgmont by default, with costs.
Samuel Albert, counsel for the plaintiff,
got the order for Mrs. Farlagrecco's arrest
yesterday, and Deputy Sheriff Gilmore
went to the defendant's home. He found
the woman's husliand at home and out of
employment and explained that Mrs.
Parlagrecco would have to stay in jail
until she could give 12,100 security.
The defendant, a small, poorly dressed
woman, was taken to the Sheriff s office
at about noon. Her alarm and distress
were such that the Sheriff became in
terested in her case ht once, and he had
John Oliva, a lawyer who was in the office
on other business, talk with her. The
woman said that she hadn't paid any at'
tention to Miss Saxnmaroo'a suit end
didn't suppose she would hear anything
more of It. She said she didn't Intend to
-caime -any trouble and wanted a ohanoe
to apologies for anything she had said I
Sheriff Harburger said that she wouldn't
he sent to jail if he could help It, and
he summoned Lawyer Albert. The latter
said he had obtained the order ot arrest
because his client Insisted on it. He
said he would do what he oould to keep
Mrs. Parlagrecco out of jail. He called
up Miss Sammarco end told her to get
a taxlcnb at his expense and hurry down
to the Sheriff's office.
When Miss Sammarco arrived she was
dressed in a broadcloth suit, wore a silk
shirtwaist, picture hat and velvet shoes
and carried a silver mesh bag. She got
to the ofllce just as Mrs. Farlagrecco's
husband returned from a fruitless quest
Mr. Oliva explained to Miss Sammaroo
in Italian that the defendant had four
children at home who needed her and
that Bines it is Holy Week It would be a
graceful act to accept an apology from
Mrs. Parlagrecco and forgive her. He
told Miss Sammarco that the defendant
would otherwise hive to stay in jail over
"No, let her go to jail," said Miss Sam
marco. "She hurt me and she must
suffer. She talked abo'it mo and she
also threw a stone at my head once."
Sheriff Harburger tried to couvinco
Miss Sammarco that she would really
get more satisfaction out of the other
woman's apology than from sending her
to prison, but after she had consulted
with a relative who had a bristling blond
mustache Miss Sammarco said that
nothing could movo her to sympathy.
Others in tho ollce talked to her, but
she kept saying:
"No, the woman must go to jail."
"Hut don't you know that to-morrow
is Good Friday and that, you ought not
to keep this woman in jail on that day?"
asked the Sheriff.
"1 don't care about Good Friday. She
spoiled my name. That's all 1 care
about," said Miss Sammarco.
Finally the Sheriff told Deputy Sheriff
Gilmore to call a taxicab and take Mrs,
Parlagrecoo to jail. Thero wa3 n scene
when the woman vr& parted from her
husband. Ml Simmirco looked on
unmoved. Uiat night Mrs. Parlagreooo's
husband 'and the three youngest chil
dren were at I.udlow streot jail with her
part of the evening and the baby was left
At her home last night Miss Sammarco
was still obdurate.
"Let hor stay In Jail." she cried vigor
ously. "It will do her good."
Several men who were in the place
suggosted, however, that she might

Everywhere In the entire waterswept

In the wake of the flood is the spectre
of pestilence which may result from the
overflow when the waters recede.
Tho Mississippi tore a great crevasse in
the Mobile and Ohio lovoe near Davis
Junction on tho west side of the Cairo
drainage district this morning and despite
tho efforts of 300 men the water could
not bo controlled.
Within n short timo the water was
racing through a great nrea thought to
bo immuno from flood and endangering
tho lives of 500 men at work on tho BiR
Four levee fighting to kcop out the Ohio.
One hundred and twenty of these men
were marooned und tho tug Francis was
sent to rescue them. The drainage dis
trict contains 9,000 acres and many fino
homos and buildings.
The city of Cairo itself is safe. Tho
breaking of tho drainage levee in no way
endangers the city, which is protected by
a great system of cross lovces.
Heforo another day dawns fears and
rumors thnt havo prevailed throughout
tho Mississippi Valley will in nil proba
bility become grim reality. Every ono
who has kept In close touch with the
i-Huation believe that tho levees nt
Memphis cannot withstand tho strain
through tho night.
With tho mark reading 43.8 feet at 7
o'clock tho river is only two-tenths of a
foot from tho mark where it lias been
predicted by Weather Observer Emery
and others tho banks would give way
beforo the pressure of thousands of acres
of water, and tho end of tho riso is not In
sight. From tho upper river and itji
tributaries como reports of additional
water. When the Hood's crest will reach
the lower river is problematical.
From Mound City, across the river from
Memphis, where a long fight has been
waged with the river, defeat for the
thousand or more workers seemed in
evitable late to-day. Only 100 yards of
sand filled sacks wero protecting thou
sands of acres inland. A stuge of 44 feet
means that this narrow strip will give
way and allow the river to rush over
farms and settlements. Tho weak place
is near tho spot where a dirt road crosses
From many other places como reports
that breaks nre immirient and that thou
sands of persons aro preparing to desert
their homes and possessions.
New difficulties resulting from the flood
situation developed in Memphis to-day
when city officials found the city's water
supply had been contaminated by seep
age. Following a conference between
Mayor Crump, members of the city com
mission and several physicans and mem
bers of the health department, a bullotln
was issued at noon warning citizens to
boil nil water before using I. for drinking
or cooking. x
The five day fight of the people of Cairo
to savo tho Cairo drainage district ended
in complete rout to-night about 5 oclock
when all hope of saving the industrial
and agricultural district of 8,000 acres
just north of this city was abandoned.
To-morrow morning in place of alfalfa
