Bayou Sara, La., April 21.—The levee
gave way at the foot of Fountain street
at an early hour this morning. A gen
eral alarm was sounded, and all the
people turned out, and after hard work
closed the break. It was soon found,
however, that the rising river was run
ning over tlie front levee, and nothing
could be done to check it. Tremendous
confusion ensued. Every boat and raft i
was brought into requisition. Lanterns
could be seen everywhere, and cries and
shouts of men, women and children,
working to save their effects, couid be
heard in every direction. Not a house
in town has escaped inundation, and
from daybreak until evening it has been
raining hard. The loss will he consid
erable, as flood and destruction meet
the eye at every point. Two other
crevasses developed during the day, and
altogether the prospects for Bayou Sara
are not encouraging for early relief from
New Orleans, La., April 21. —Reports
from up the river today are again
gloomy. It has been raining today, and
the river is rising at nearly all points,
but no serious apprehensions are yet in- !
dulged in. No breaks are reported, ex- |
cept the one at Bayou Sara, but Pine
Blurt', Arkansas, reports that the water
will almost surely overflow tlie cotton
territory in the Northeast.
A gale has driven the gulf water into
Lake Pontchartrain to such an extent
that the tide water has covered the
shell roads leading to Spanish Fort and
West End, and also submerged the
sparsely settled sections of the north
eastern suburbs of this city, doing some
damage to gardens, etc." About noon
today the levee gave way just above the
sugar house on Hon. T." S. Wilkinson's
Myrtle Grove plantation. In twenty
minutes the break was 300 feet wide,
and the water was pouring through in
an irresistible torrent. The break is
some thirty miles below the city. The
right bank was pretty high, and much
damage will result from the crevasse.

New York, April 21.—The Inman

A Priest Silenced.
Watkrtown, N. V., April 21.—Bishop
Wadhams has silenced Father Peter J.
If. Ryan, of St. Peter's Roman Catholic
church, at Lowville, New York, and sus
pended him from tlie priestly office, on
account of acts unbecoming a priest.
The cause of complaint against him was
as to his method of assessing the con
gregation and extorting money from
them. The trouble was brought to a
climax when the priest's demand upon
a lady of the congregation for her share
of a certain assessment was refused.
Father Ryan became angry and struck
her in the face with a prayer book, and

THE SILVER QUESTION.
THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS
HOLD ANOTHER CAUCUS.
Reports of the Special Silver Committee
Received—The Cattcus Stands Two to
One Against the Windom Bill.
Washington, April 21.—The Republi
can members of the House held a caucus
tonight to receive the report of its com
mittee on the silver question. Chairman
Conger, of the coinage committee, in
presenting the report of the committee,
recited the concessions which the House
caucus committee had offered to the
Senate committee, told how the negotia
tions had failed, mainly on the redemp
tion and national propositions, and
summed up by reporting that the House
committee had withdrawn all its con
cessions, and that nine of the fifteen
members had decided to recommend
that the House pass the modified Win
dom bill, as it came from the coinage
| Representative Walker, oi Massachu-
I setts, another member of the committee,
upheld the committee's action. He
i maintained that Ho lull would secure all
i the necessary relief in the way of expan
! sion of the currency, and in substance
| reiterated Secretary Windom's objec
j tions to the redemption features of the
I Senate bill, pointing out the dangers
] underlying the positive requirement that
| the treasury notes should be redeemed
| in lawful money.
I The six members of the caucus com
j mittee who refused to accede to the ma
; jority bill, favoring the modified Win
l dom bill, were Representatives Perkins,
of Kansas, Bartine, of Nevada, Wick
j ham, of Ohio, Carter, of Montana, Tay
! lor, of Illinois, and Henderson, of lowa.
: They represented the Western sentiment,
1 and had a proposition of their own to
offer, which was submitted by Repre
! sentative Perkins. It was set forth as a
j compromise measure, and in fact is a
composite of the Senate and House com
! mittee bills.
Dorsey, of Nebraska, entered a solemn
protest against the Eastern restrictive
policy. He prophesied that if the Re
publican party hesitated to adopt free
coinage or something equivalent, it
would surely be defeated at the polls
The discussion ran until half past j
eleven, when finally the entire subject
was recommitted to the caucus commit
tee. It became evident from several |
votes on minor propositions taken dur- I
ing the debate that the Republican j
members are opposed to the Windom
bill in the proportion of two to one. The j
committee will report to another meet
ing of the caucus Wednesday night.
Senator Stewart Says It Is a Scheme to
Washington, April 21. —Senator Stew
art, of Nevada, in an interview which
will be printed in the Post tomorrow,
sharply criticises Secretary Windom's
attitude on the silver question. The
Senator asserts that it is Secretary Win
dom's policy to demonetize silver. The
Secretary, the Senator says, confounds
the silver question with the money ques
tion. The business of the country is
suffering badly from the want of more
money, and what the silver men ask is
that more be created. The provision of
the VVindom bill, giving the Secretary
discretionary power in the purchase of
silver bullion, is attacked on the ground
that past experience with Secretaries
of the Treasury shows that this is
unwise. The bullion redemption fea
tures of the Windom bill are also
attacked, the Senator declaring its ob
ject is to make gold the sole standard as'
money. What the advocates of silver
want, the Senator concludes, is a con
stant and regular supply of money to
meet the legitimate demands of the
country, and they do not want to place
it in the power of the bankers or treas
ury officials to expand or contract the
currency to meet the demands of the
speculators in property or money. The
general tenor of the whole interview is
that the silver men want silver recog
nized as a money metal, and they do not
consider the Windom bill such a meaa-,

Sacramento, April 21.—Concerning

his attention to that."
WENT UP THE FLUE.
A Chambermaid's Novel Experience at
Spokane Falls, Wyo., April 21. —A
most remarkable, and what might have
proved, a fatal accident, occurred late
yesterday afternoon at the new Hotel
Spokane, which is to be thrown open to
the public next Wednesday. One of the
chambermaids, named Annie Martin,
was caught up by the wings of the large
ventilating fan in the kitchen and car
ried up the escape pipe as far as the sec- j
ond story, where she was wedged fast by
her clothing. After locating her precise
position, the pipe was cut open and the
girl was taken out. She was badly
trightened, but otherwise uninjured.
The ventilating apparatus is to carry
the fumes from the kitchen, which is
located in the basement, up through a
large sheet-iron pipe which connects
with the fan and runs up outside the
building to the roof. The fan is a huge
affair, ten feet across. At the time of
the accident it was being tested, and
was making 1,200 revolutions per

A Big Suit Begun in the Federal Court
Portland, Ore., April 21.— R. F. Mc-

suit in the L'nited States Circuit Court,
here, against Governor Pennoyer and
the Board of School Land Commis
sioners to restrain them perpetually from
selling some 45,000 acres of swamp and
I overflowed lands, purchased by him from
ex-Congressman Felton, of California,
j The question arises under the act of the
■ Legislature declaring that certificates of
sale of swamp lands on which twenty
per cent, has not been paid by a certain
date, should be canceled regardless of
the ninety days' notice required by the
former act. McConaughy purchased
under the latter conditions.

President Carnot in Corsica—Other

Associated Press Dispatches, i
London, April 21.—1n the Commons
today, Parnell moved that the Irish
Land Purchase bill be rejected. He
said that the measure justified the
claims of the Nationalists made nine
years ago. He welcomed Balfour as the
latest recruit to the ranks of the land
reformers. While accepting the Gov
ernment's recognition of land for the
people, Parnell declared that he could
not admit that the bill was a satisfactory
solution of the land question. The initial
question was how far the British
taxpayer would go on lending credit to
the Irish landlords. The experience
gained by the discussion of Gladstone's
land bill in 1886, showed that the tax
payer would not go far enough to finally
settle the land difficulty. The present
bill was meant simply to enable one
ninth of the owners of land in Ireland to
sell out at exorbitant prices, leaving
the poorer residents in the lurch.
Parnell also objected to the bill on the
ground that it did not provide for carry
ing out what it proposed, while it ex
hausted the only Irish credit available,
without the consent of the Irish, and
without any local control in the appli
ance of money. Again, while coercion
was applied as it now is, a
tenant can never be a free agent.
The bill, he declared, was unsafe to
the imperial taxpayers, the guarantees
it provides being illusory and insuffi
cient. According to Balfour's own fig
ures relief was to be provided for only
three-fourths of the tenantH.
Parnell spoke at great length. Tre
velyan also spoke in opposition to the
bill. The debate was then adjourned.
The Parnellites are divided in their
opinions on Mr. Parnell's motion. They
think an explanation is necessary.

A LUCKY MURDERESS.
Roasted Her Husband and Is Entitled to
Chicago, April 21.—The Appellate
Court rendered a decision today in the
somewhat noted case of Mrs. Maggie
Schreiner against the high court of the
Illinois Catholic Foresters, to recover
$1,000 for the death of her husband,
whose clothing she saturated with coal
oil, and then set fire to it, causing his
death. Mrs. Schreiner at the time
pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and is
now serving a term in Joliet. On the
first trial the lower court held that she
was not entitled to the money, because
the killing was willful murder. The Ap
pellate Court held that her plea of guilty
cannot be used in civil proceedings, and
that she is entitled to show that the
killing was unintentional.

FAR FROM BEING SETTLED.
The Union Determined to Carry Its Point.
The Eight-Hour Movement Growing
All Over the Country.
Chicago, April 21.—N0 progress was
made toward the settlement of the car
penters' strike today; in fact, a
settlement seems further away than
ever. It was understood that as
soon as the new bosses' associa
tion should become strong enough
to employ four thousand men, work by
that number would be resumed. Today,
however, the strike leaders say under
no circumstances will any of the men be
allowed to return to work until bosses
representing seven-eighths of the em
ploying capacity of the city have given
in and recognized the union. It is not
likely that this will be done soon. The
citizens' committee appointed to bring
about a settlement of the trouble has
given up the idea of a conference with
the strikers, owing to this radical change
in their position.
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, was in
the city today, and, talking about the
eight-hoar movement, said: The labor
Organizations Of the oountry are devoted
solely to this idea.
