Jackson, Miss , April 9. At 10.35 a.
m. today nil wire communication with
Oreenvllle. Miss., was lost. The sudden
cutting oft may be significant.
The city, which has a population of
15,000, has for days been seriously
threatened by the Mississippi river
flood. It Is below tha level of the high
stage reached by the water, which hael
for pome time surrounded It for several
miles on nil sides.
Levees protected the city, but fears
wera expressed that they would not be
able to resist the Immense weight of
Startling rumors nre cuirent here.
Vlcksburg, Mla April 9. It was a
wild night at Vlcknbiirg1. A fierce
northerly gale Is blowing, and the lake
Is now nearly three miles wide and la
white with foam. The- waves have a
long sweep at the Louisiana levee and
may do them great harm.
TRYING TO SAVE THE LEVEES.
New Orleans, April 9 The river at
New Orleans Is well over the 18-foot
mark. The highest pre lous record Is
17.9 in 1S93. It Is now IS 2. The engi
neers expected 1S.G. but that was upon
the arrl-l of ths Hood wave, which Is
still en route.
Last night City Engineer Bell pre
dicted that the river would go a foot
higher, and the levee boatd has secured
consent to blockade many streets lead
ing to the levee. Low places will be
raised nt once, and work on the lino
begun with renewed energy, for time Is
The worst feature of the situation Is
the daily storm. Last evening's blow
was the worst so far, doing consider
able damage and tearing a steamship
and steamboat away from their moor
ings. All the leee boards base their
hope of holding the lino upon fair
weather, but April Is nlwuys a stormy
month here, and this month Is far from
proving an exception.
RELIEF TRAINS RY NIOHT AND
The drenching and battering the
banks are receiving aie beginning to
tell, and the danger is becoming great
er, relief trains now going out by night
us well as day.
With the greatest Hood and the
stormiest month coming together, the
Louisiana levees have borne the brunt
magnificently, and even If they foil to
stand Indefinitely, the advocates of the
Hystem will feel encouraged to urge
upon congress their extension and per

They Had Killed 180 Persons.
New York, April 9. A Vancouver, B.
C. dispatch to the Sun says: The
American whaling bark Charles W.
Morgan, Captain J. O. Layton, brings
a story from Yokohama of a massacre
at tho southern island of Guam. A
Spanish vessel brought from the Phil
ippines to that point 400 prisoners.
Pood was scarce and the guard was
small and the Insurgent prisoners tried
to break out of a small barn, where
they were confined.
To discourage any such attempts the
Spanish soldiers each night for three
nights amused themselves by firing
into the barn. On the first nlghc 75
were killed, on the second night 60, and
on the third 45, ISO In all. Those who
survived, to be shot by martial law
later, saved themselves for the time
by making barricades of the bodies of
their dead companions and hiding be
hind them. The eotpses wore so tld
dled with bullets that tho clothing on
them was in tatters.
The story has been confirmed by the
Japanese schooner Mlnalogawa and has
caused great Indignation In Yokohama.
TOLD WHO HE WAS WHEN DYING.
An American in tho City of Mexico
Who Concealed His Idcntiti.
New York. April 9. A special to tho
Sun from the City of Mexico, says: A
few days ago an American business
man of this city who was known here
under the name of Thomas C. Price
died In the American hospital. On his
deathboei he made tho statement that
he hud lived In this city for the past
five years under an assumed name, and
that his real name was Thomas Nixon
Allison. He said that for several years
he was an extensive opeiator In real
estate in Philadelphia, and that his
business affairs became ko Involved
that hn v. as- forced to leave that city.
He bought a ticket for Mexico under
the name of Price, and went by that
name thereafter. None of his friends
In Philadelphia knew of his where
abouts. He was joined here by his
family a shoit time after his arrival.
He requested that a public explanation
bo made and that his family resume his

New York, April 9. R. G. Dun &

Out of 4,006 failures with liabilities
of $C0,752,M1 In the first quarter, 74
banking failures covered more than a
fifth of the amount, $12,744,650 and 3,
345 failures with liabilities of $35,947,892
or nearly three-fifths are classified this
week according to branches of busi
ness, leaving only 5S7 failures and less
than a fifth of the liabilities, $12,060,019,
In branches of manufacture or trade
not specified. Only two of the thirteen
manufacturing classes and only four
of the thirteen trading classes show
liabilities for the quarter larger than
last j ear, and only five manufacturing
and three trading show larger average
liabilities. For the month of March,
only three manufacturing and four
trading classes show larger amounts
than last year, and only two manufac
turing and live trading show a larger
average of liabilities. In almost every
case, also, It Is shown that the Increase
is due to one or two exceptionally large
failures in that clats. The returns,
compared with those of thteo previous
years, disclose much Improvement al

A sudden collapse In the wheat mar
ket, exceeding three cents In a day, ap
pears to have no other cause than a
belated perception that past accepted
estimates of yield and consumption,
official and other have been misleading,
Floods and unfavorable weather and
high prices burst like a bubble, and for
a time the only support was the taking
of profits by speculators for a fall.
Facts have not warranted hopes of u
great advance, nor do they now war
rant much expectation of decline.
Western receipts are smaller than last
year, and Atlantic exports are not
large, though over 60 per cent, larger
than a year ago. Corn receipts con
tinue heavy and exports for the week
were 3,323,337 bushels against 1,142,710
last year, and against Atlantic exports
of wheat amounting, flour Included, to
only 1,521,122 bushels against 967,553 last
Speculation In wool has been checked
by the possibility that duties may take
effect May 1 and some large shipments
from abroad have beerr countermanded,
while traders here are less disposed to
sell. But trading between dealers
makes up more than half the sales of
12,739,400 pounds for the week and since
sales In six weeks at three markets
have been 76,464,600 pounds. It Is not
Improbable that many mills have, as Is
claimed, a full year's supply. The de
man for men's goods has diminished,
the first round of purchases having
been completed by many buyers with
results fairly encouraging and the de
mand for dress goods, especially of the
lower grades, has caused an advance of
5 per cent, in some lines.
The steel and iron industry Is ham
pered by the contest between Mesabl
ore Interests which prevents as yet any
settlement of ore prices and leads many
to expect further decline In finished
products. The Illinois Steel works, the
Lake Erie works at Cleveland, and the
works of Oliver & Co. and Byers & Co.
at Pittsburg, ore stopped by labor dif
ficulties and some furnaces have
stopped because the production of pig
had outrun the demand for finished
products and heavy stocks remained
unsold. Bessemer pig at Pittsburg
brings only $10 and grey forge only
$8.75, the lowest on record, but no quot
able decline Is seen In finished products
and nails are strong.

Wnll Street Review.
New York, April 9. Trading, as com
pared with tho trading on somo days tills
week, there was considerable animation
to business on tho Stock Exchange, though
tho market has by no means attained
largo proportions ct. Nearly half tho
sales today were of sugar and Chicago
Gas and tho Grangers and coalers took up
a laigo part of tho remaining half. So
that the apparent Increase in business was
largely confined to a few stocks. Tho
murket opened with qulto a mnrked up
ward tendency, and as prices worked up
ward thero was a broadening In the bcope
of the buying. Unfavorable lntluoncea de
veloped and traders took their profit. This
proed too much for tho market and val
ues sagged oft closing prices showing In
most cases sharp net losses. Tho total
sales of stocks today wero 193,431 shares.

iiowo and mjself much uneasiness about
our boy's condition. Wo called in a doctor
and ho prescribed for I'red, but the lad did
not seem to Improve, so I purchased a box
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Pcoplo
in one of the down town Mores. Then for
four months steadily I'red took them instead
of tho medicine prescribed by tho doctor
and at tho end of that period it was about
New Year's then I'red was sufficiently im
proved to be able to go out.
"The improvement wns slow at first, but
it r&3 sure. I had unbounded faith in the
pills as is evidenced by our continued ue of
them. It was necessary for us to tako.Frcd

now he has returned and can join in all the
