Bayou Sara, La., April 23. —Another
break occurred last night in the Points
Coupee levee. The indications are that
the entire Pointe Coupee front will be
submerged. The water is pouring through
the crevasses at Morganza and vicinity,
and will overflow the greater portion of
the country between the Atchafalaga
and tlie Mississippi rivers, extending
from Old river above to Bayou Lafourche
below, embracing 700 square miles. No
news has been received from the in
terior of Pointe Coupee parish, but relief
boats are taking care of all those who
reached the levees. As the critical con
dition of the levees has been known for
some weeks, the hope is entertained
that all have in a measure prepared for
the worst, and that no loss of life will
result from the breaks along the front.
New Orleans, April 23. —In this city
today the lake water encroached some
what again north of Claiborne street,
and some trouble was experienced by
the water from the canal flowing over
the banks of the old basin. No serious
damage has been done yet.
A Times-Democrat Bayou Sara special
says: Seven crevasses are reported to
day between this place and Waterloo.
This makes nine on the Pointe Coupee
front. The devastation in that and the
southwestern parishes will be terrible.
The rains continue. Last night it poured
down in torrents, causing a freshet in
the bayou and a rise of live inches in
town. This additional rise caused more
danger to the goods in the stores. The
opening of the crevasses, however, let
considerable water out this evening, and
it fell twelve inches in town. The rail
road trestle has been washed away, and
the only communication with tlie main
line now is by boat.
News of additional crevasses near
Baton Rouge and Bayou Sara lead to the
beUef here that the disaster to the sugar
belt will equal that of 1874, when nine
parishes were inundated, unless the
water recedes quickly.
Pi.aqueminu, La., April 23. —Rain
came down in torrents last night, and
for the twenty-four hours ending this
morning six inches of water fell. The
town is tilled with people from the
country, some bringing in their families
and cattle, and others seeking material
to light the floods. Most of the planters
base their calculations on the flood of
'82, but the water is already higher than

Houston, Tex., April 23. —A continu

three days past. The rivers and bayous
in many places are over banks, bridges
have been swept away, and travel is de
layed. A great deal of stock in the low
lands has been drowned, but no loss of
life is reported.
Not in a Hurry to Build.
San Francisco. April 23.—The direct
ors and leading officials of the Southern
Pacilic Company say concerning the
completion of the coast division, from
its present terminus at Santa Margarita
to Santa Barbara, that it is not deter
mined upon, and is not subject
at present to consideration; that the
conditions at present do not call for an
early completion of the road, which will
be very expensive through the mount
ains between the two ends of
the line. The company, however,
is actively engaged In securing
the right-of-way through San Luis
Obispo county, via San Luis Obispo, and
the fact that difficulties in securing the
right-of-way have existed may have had
something to do w-ith the uncertainty
announced. The route is understood to
be definitely fixed.
A Cattle King's Matrimonial Freak.
New York, April 23.—A special from
New Haven, Conn., says: Wilson Wad

he obtained a divorce from his first wife
about a month ago, and was soon after

San Francisco, April 23.—Judge

Editor Rosewater's Case.
Omaha, April 23.— E. Rosewater, ed

trial today at Tekamah, Neb., on the
charge of disturbing a religious meeting.
Last fall he appeared at the above
place where an audience had as
sembled to listen to a temper

asked that he might be heard in order
to refute some slanders which, he as
serted, Mrs. Gougar had publicly made
against him. Mrs. Gougar denied him
tlie.privilege, and caused his arrest for
disturbing a religious meeting. After
the examination of four witnesses, to

EXPLOITING ON AMERICAN COM
MERCE IN A HIGH-HANDED WAY.
American Vessels Discriminated Against
in the Matter of Canal Tolls-The
Treaty of Washington Violated.
Washington, April 23.—Senator Cul
lom has concluded his report upon the
investigation made by the committee on
interstate commerce into the relations of
the railroads of the United States and
Canada, and also whether there is any
discrimination in the charges made for
tolls against United States vessels pass
ing through the Welland and St. Law
rence canals. The report asserts that
unjust discrimination is made by Canada
against American vessels on the
lakes in the matter of entrance
and clearance fees. Vessels passing
through the Welland canal bound to
Montreal, have a rebate made of a por
tion of the tolls paid for the canal
passage, but if bound to any American
port or to the St. Lawrence river no re
bate is made. This, the report claims,
is a violation of the provisions of the
treaty of Washington.
In conclusion, the report says: "Thus
it is that by attacking the narrow mar
gins of profit in the transportation busi
ness here and there, our competitor at
the north has been exploiting upon
American commerce for many years.
It is doing that very thing today in a
more high-handed and exultant
way than ever before. All that
is necessary for the Government
of Great Britain or Canada to do,
is to throw sufficient advantage in favor
of British steamers, Canadian fishing
vessels and Canadian railroads, to turn
our commerce from the American ocean
steamers, American fishing vessels,
American railroads and American sea
ports. This is being done, not only by
subvention, but also by enabling statut
ory provisions which go in the face of
the Interstate Commerce act of the

The Republican Caucus Approves and
Urges Early Consideration.
Washington, April 23.—At the Repub
lican caucus tonight the Silver bill, as
given elsewhere in these dispatches, was
adopted with but few dissenting votes.
The objecting members are opposing the
bill because of its failure to have the
full legal tender quality of the treasury
notes specified. In addition to the pro
visions of the bill already stated, it is
provided that the money now held in
the treasury to redeem the national
bank circulation in the case of liquidat
ing banks, banks reducing circulation,
etc., is to be covered into the treasury.
This fund, estimated to be about $78,
--000,000, will be restored to the circula
It is also provided by the bill that the
treasury notes shall lie receivable for
customs, taxes and all public dues, and
when so received may be reissued; and
such notes, when held by any national
banking association, may be counted as
a part of its lawful reserve*.
The committee on rules will report a
resolution requiring the consideration of
the bill by the House at the earliest
possible moment, with a strict limita
tion on the length of the debate.
The caucus indorsed the Morrill Ser
vice Pension bill.
Lodge explained his National Election
bill, but Chairman Rowell, of the elec
tion committee, did not think it neces
sary to pass such a law, and submitted
a plan for a wide extension of the pres
ent supervisory system. The matter
will come up again next Tuesday night.

The San Francisco Union League
Does the Honors.
The Brethren Make Believe That They
Dwell in Harmony, But Wait Till
the Campaign Opens.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
San Francisco, April 23. —A reception
was tendered to members of the Repub
lican State central committee by the
Union League Club of San Francisco,
this evening. After a banquet lasting
until 10:15 p. in., General Chamberlain,
president of the club, introduced George
A. Knight, of San Francisco, who wel
comed the delegates in a speech which
was loudly applauded.
Vice-President Easton then read a
communication from General Dimond,
chairman of the State central committee,
who was unable to be present. He urged
that this being an off year should not
tend to lessen the efforts of the Republi
cans in California.
Hon. M. M. Estee, in the course of his
speech, said that party was unworthy of
power which could not perpetuate the
power it possesses. Union leagues were
therefore necessary organizations. Es
tee stated that he was present in the
House of Representatives when Speaker
Reed told the House and country that it
could not be represented by a member
who was absent in spirit and present in
the flesh. Union league clubs were
disseminators of Republicanism. "Let
us convince the world," he continued,
"that the policy of the Republican party
is the policy of the country."
The toast, "The Republican Party,"
was responded to by ex-Senator Wil
liams. He asked, should he speak of the
old-time leaders or of the young men of
the Republican party ? He preferred to
speak of the Republican party as it is.
This, if he judged right, was an epoch of
reconciliation. Let all slates be wiped
out, and all work together for the good
of the party.
One verse of "Marching Through
Georgia" was sung with all the guests
M. H. DeYoung was received with
great applause, but spoke briefly, thank
ing the delegates for the honor conferred
on the club by their presence.
Three cheers were proposed ami given
for "the man who published the leading
Republican paper of California in the
campaign of 1888."
Hervey Lindley, vice-president of the
Union League Club of Los Angeles, said
he represented a club composed of fifty
of the leading Republicans of the State.
He called upon Judge Carpenter, of Los
Angeles, to respond to the toast: "The
Union League Club of Los Angeles."
Judge Carpenter created much merri
ment by stating that the delegates
would now understand what was meant
by "warhorse." It was one who would
carry a burden no other would carry.
He was not down on the slate to respond
to the toast named, but was always
ready to advance the importance of the
Republican League of Los Angeles. He
created great applause by stating that
"Whoever the Republicans shall nomi
nate for Governor, we will give him a
majority to put him into the guberna
torial chair." He said a solid delega
tion would be sent to the conven
tion for Leland Stanford tor Senator.
No one could forget the picture of
those in the front, among whom was
Stanford, who, in 1861, led the move
ment which saved California to the
But while "they had preferences, the
Los Angeles delegation would accede in
any nomination made by the convention,
and carry forward the banner of the
Republicans until the candidate was
landed in the gubernatorial chair.
Mr. Bryant, of San Bernardino, then
rose to make a few remarks. He said
the Republicans of his county would
march together under whatever leader
the State Convention should give them.
"Do not nominate," he continued, "any
man unless he fills the bill for
capacity and honesty." There was no
year when there was so much at stake
as at present, and it was not only impor
tant that the head of the ticket should
be elected, but also each Republican
candidate for the Legislature.
Judge Short, of Fresno, responded to
the toast, "The Young Men of the Re
publican Party." He said Fresno was
honored by this opportunity to fall
easily, having to lose the State Conven
tion. Fresno was in the fight for. the
convention, as it wished the party to
know it was still alive. In former years
the Democracy of Fresno was unques
tioned, and all the precincts were Demo
cratic precincts,but Republicanism is now
in the ascendancy. Continuing, he said
the patriotism of the Republican party
rose above the interests of any precinct
or town. He closed by saving the Re
publicans believed in protection as a
tried and time-worn principle, andunder
it the country had become a great and

proof at this meeting of how pleas

together in unity. Whoever would
be the nominee of the party would
command Ventura's earnest support.
The judge's remarks were humorous in
the extreme, and created much merri
Samuel Shortridge responded to the
toast, "Dirigo." He said that out of the
labors of that club had blossomed the
Union League Club. A small band of
young men had gathered together for no
selfish ends, devoted to their country, to
tmth and to God, and contributed
largely to Republican success in the
State. The men of the Republican
party are conscious of the great respon
nihility laid upon them. The Republi
can party was the one which promised
the greatest achievements and glory,
and young men should say: "Let all the
ends thou enlist be thy country's,
truth's and God's."
The speaker then closed and the re
mainder of the evening was devoted to

At midnight another tire broke out in

Has Women Tired of the Ballot ?
Very sad news comes from Leaven
worth, Kansas. It appears that lovely
woman has tired ot that bauble, the
ballot, and after a few trials at the game
of politics, has thrown up the sponge—
in other words, ceased to vote. The
dear creatures, who have it pretty much
all their own way in Kansas,were among
the. first of their sex to be given the
privilege of casting ballots, and now see
now quickly they have wearied of
their privilege! It is melancholy that
history should be forced to record
such feminine fickleness as the recent
elections in that State have chronicled
in black and white. An uncharitable
and cynical he-world will be certain to
make their changes of political senti
ment a handle to lift public opinion in
an opposite direction from what it has
been tending of late. Women suffragists
throughout the East take a gloomy view
of the Kansas situation, but they lie
low, like Bre' Rabbit, hoping good may
yet come out of evil.—[Boston Herald.
