Associated Press Dispatches. |
Louisville, March 81.—With four
inches of water-soaked snow, slowly
melting, the situation in the devastated
district has been gloomy today, and
Aany people tonight are broken in
spirit though their physical wants are
supplied. Most of the streets in the dis
trict- are ankle deep in mud and water.
The worst result of the vet is not so
much in additional injury to property as
iv suffering, owing to the ill-hearth
of the poorly - protected peo
ple. Scores of families are
protected only by hastily put up boards
or canvas, and they are wet and cold.
There is plenty of food, however, and
the relief committee and agents are
striving in every way to supply proper ,
protection from the weather for all.
The heavy snow, however, has greatly
retarded repairs in the residence dis
trict, and a vast quantity of household
goods today has been partially or wholly
spoiled by the wet. The tobacco ware
houses are pretty well protected, and it
is not thought their loss will be serious.

evening, said he is satisfied that the I

The Appeal's Greenville, Miss., special
jsays: The levee north of the city gave
way at noon, despite the efforts of the

the city, which always before had Leon

Pulitmoke, Md., March 31.—The Sun's
Belair correspondent, writing about
Treasurer Archer, whose shortage it is
now thought will amount to half a mil
lien dollars, says Archer's present diffi
culty is the result of political aspira
; tons, which began to develop at least
| thirty years ago. lie spent money with
a lavish hand to further his own political
preferment, and was almost equally
liberal in his expenditures to advance

\ itical friends.

It is now the declared ptirpose of his

Governor Jackson Culpable.
There is a provision in the constitu
tion of the State which requires the
Governor to examine under oath every
six months the accounts of the Comp
troller and Treasurer. Peculations have
been practiced by Archer for the past
three years, so that the Governor for the
past tfiree years did not carry out tlie
requirements of the constitution in this
particular. Based on this constitutional
provision a resolution has been intro
duced in the House, requesting the Gov
ernor to inform the House as soon as
possible when he last examined the
Treasurer of the State under oath, as to
the condition of the State funds intrusted
to his care, as provided by the constitu

' Mr. G. F. Smurr's Kindly Offices for the
Fruit Growers—Other Pacific Coast
Associated Press Dispatches.;
San Francisco, March 81. —The freight
committee of the Transcontinental Rail
way Association met here today, and
adopted a new freight tariff for orange
and lemon shipments. The present rate
|to the Missouri river is $1.12 I .j per 100
I pounds, and $1.25 to Chicago and St.
Louis. By the new tariff these two rates
are removed, and one of $1.10 substi
tuted. The rate from here to any and
all points between the Atlantic Coast
I and Chicago and St. Louis will be $1.25,
j being a reduction of sixty-five cents per
' hundred between here and New York.
The consent of the lines east of the
Missouri river and Chicago must be ob
| tamed before the latter can go into
effect. A telegram was sent today, ask
ing their consent, and it is thought there
; will be no difficulty on this score. It
j was agreed by tlie committee to have
1 the changes go into effect next Friday.
The new rates were presented to "tlie
I committee for adoption by C. F. Smurr,
general freight agent of the Southern
Pacific Company, and seconded by
: General Freight Agent Campbell, of the
: Pacific division of the Union Pacific.
Smurr, by his long residence at Los An
geles as a Southern Pacific representa
j tive, became very familiar with citrus
fruit shipments, and the main argu
ment he used in favor of the reduction
was that the competition of Mediter
j ranean fruits as far west as Chicago was
so great that California shippers abso
| lutely required a saving in freight rates
j to meet it.
There is still remaining in Southern
j California about 1,100 carloads of this
| season's orange crop that will get the
I benefit of the new rate. These rates, to
gether with the reductions recently
made in the rates in deciduous fruits,
will have the effect of saving to shippers
this year fully $200,000.
A MUKDEIi CLEARED CP.
The Slayers of Jens Frederickgon and
Astori a, Ore.. March 31.—The verdict
of the Coroner's jury at Bay Centre,
Washington, charged George' Rose and
John Edwards with the murder of Jens
F. Frederickson, who disappeared early
in February and whose body was found
last Wednesday in a lonely "gulch near
Bruceport, Washington. Frederickson's
wife disappeared at the same time. Her
body was not found until after the in
quest on her husband's. (ieorge Rose
then confessed that he knew where the
body was, and located it. Frederickson
had tiled on a valuable land claim ad
joining the farm of John Pose, father of
the supposed murderer. The same claim
had previously been located by different
parties, all of "whom had been frightened
off by Rose. Frederickson disappeared
early in February. When inquiries
were made, George Rose told of seeing
them go out on Shoal Water bay in a
small boat, and disappear in a "squall
which suddenly arose. Suspicions were
excited by various circumstances, and
by the guilty actions of George Rose,
and a vigorous search was made for the
missing couple, which resulted in find
ing the body of the man buried in a
lonely gulch near the disputed claim.
His head was filled with shot and was
pounded to a pulp by the murderer, who
broke his gun in doing this. The theory
has been that when the husband was
killed, the wife tied in a boat and was
pursued and killed and her body sunk
in the bay.
