THE di8dG9'r SYNDICATE YET.
A CorpoV.Idt Formed to Light Two Hem- A
i oI lrpheres.
~ Financiers in Philadelphia and in
New York have succeeded during the
past week in placing stock for the "
biggest syn(dicate ever formed on the b]
face of the globe. The syndicate of
embraces in thte plans of its prodigi- lv
OUs enterprise 1 less a feat thini the
lighting of two hemispheres, and the p(
requisite cash is now in hand. ft
The incorporators of this great
concern expect to meet during the pe
coining week and perfect an organiza- si
tion under the title of the Anglo- (
Anerican Gas Lighting Company. w
Arrangements have already been of
coinpleted to list $50,000,000 of stock ai
on June 1 on the Philadelphia and C
Now York exchanges. The person- ti
nel of the Philadelphia contingent of al
of the syndicate has a decided "trae st
tion" aspect, all the leading capital- ti
ists of that network of street rail li
ways figuring prorminently in the iii
gigantic amalgamation. They art r
reinforced by the leading spirits of li
the old Gas Trust, and by no less ti
important individual capitalists. V. in
W. Gibbs, President of the Unitod to
Gas Imlprovement Company of Phila- in
delphia is the leading spirit of the new
enterprise. His subscriptions aggre- o
gate nearly *5,000,000. lie has been ri
at work on the scheme, which origi- w
nated in his brain, for nearly eight. ,i
years, and such his been his suocess al
that he is already alluded to as the b
Jay Gould of Philadelphia. Eight a1
years ago Mr. Gibbs was unknown to b:
local fame. Thei'n le occupied a ci
small office in New York city as the
president of it com1paiiy similar in sI

A special to the D)aily State from *
Bayou Sara, La., says: "Th'e relief "
steamer 'D)octonh' reached Bayou uij
Sara landing ytestorday (evening. She t
has made a trip to point R~upo andl i
comoi back to Bayou Sara. 11or ar
rival was a Godsend to the peopilo '"
whose lives are in jeopardy, for she
has not only alreadly saved aiiy Vi
amount of propoirt.y but a goodly -ii
uumber of lives. The real condition 1
of things ill the overflowed district is
,ust comning to light. No pen is
equal to the task o)f p)icturing the do- S
vastation and desolation ot the peo- a
1)lo. More of the levees has gone.
The water is balcked up1 all aroundtlii
the surroundiung country, and hunm
dIreds of lives are in jeopiardly. Th'ie
wimali stretehoes of levees still stand- L
ing are crowded with inen, woinmni
and children side b>y sidle with horson i
anid cowvs. In an old raised gin 1.
house five hundred negroes were
found hud1dled together. Their con -
ditfion was pitialhe. TIhey' were~ of
afraid of their lives, and were 1'itie
ously blegging to be taken to ia plaieo
of safety. The crevasse at, Allen
dale will overflow thirty of tie finest ~
p)lantationis of the river. The dam-d
ago is icalculable. The tdistress in 4
the overflowetd district cannot heiot
told. The Texas & Pacific 1boat "E. u

in saving 200 p)eop)le fron the 1back
