Proof of the inability of local author
tics and hcal resources to haundle this the
great task, the explise of building the cot
levcis successfully, has come after in
piany, years of trial and great cost.
Government aid has e:tabled the dis
,tricts to carry the Ianrtha~n just far wh
enonugh to make :seccess indispensible. eff
'Ihe only altrtuntive how,w is abandoln
nent ft of the task and very much of the the
-otintr3 that has w ,bent cleared up :and go
the credit of.the loc:l boards have been 111h
either exhaustted. or s ria:n,'d to the
last degree. This is aseuredly true of
th. lower Mlississippi district, the most tar
ntltieted of all; and by a cruel irony of sai
fate the mait populous and highly im- sa(
1pov,l. The iw ople have not only
itated themsclvtes most heavily, but the tht
" four caant.ics it enbraces are loaded rot
with a bonded debt of over a million da
Sdollars. Hleretofre. during the whole
existence of this board: its credit has ho
been maintainetd: luspite of all pro- ke,
vions disasters, there has never been a
default in meeting an obligation. la
But tthe must depend in future on the
government for flood protection. And thi
their present low state is wholly due to to
the government works erected pn the Sa
levees directly opposite. There in the
past six years the river commission has tal
expended nearly four dollars, for every we
one laid out In the Mississippi Levee
District. This policy of the commis
-slao has wrought widespread loss and
stin. and is-surely a strong argumentt
In favor of sole government charge of Su
,&e levees, and on a scale st1ilcient to
extend protection to all. mi

by and brought back to us next morn- re

told by a certain agent that our com- fl,

There are one hundred and ninety d'

JusticB grinds slowly. II
Last Friday the river was higher i,
than ever known at New Orleans. tl
That great city has'at felt the wave t
yet, and when it does, which will be b
about to-day, they will want more
than any three feet of levee, without
several breaks take place before the ,
water reaches there. t
ti
Now that we have highl water we a
are waiting patiently on the City .
Item of New Orleans, to make its u
dirty squeal that Gov. Foster should 1
be hell responsible forit. The Gov- a
ernor is held responsible for every
calamity that .falls our State by
the unsavory clique who run the tl
item.
The Councordtia Sentinel says that a
the levees throughout the parish are a
all in excellent condition, and have u
been raised and strengthened to stand
not less than fifty-two feet of water, I
and proboably will be able to stand
the water now cominig down on them. a
We hope that the people of that *
parish will be successful in their P
noble liTht against the 'flod.
The enginecrs calculate that the t
erevasese in the Arkansas levees,
from Helena to Laconia Circle, thir
teen in number, are carrying off a
third as much water as is conveyed
t the chbannel of the river. Add the
ive crevasses in Mississippi and
: ise above Helena to this and the

The river this week has risen about
7 tenths, and is now almost to the
height reached betpre the breaks oc
curred in Mississippi. How high the r
river will go before the levees again
commence to break is the question.
Work was ordered suspended on
the line above and below our town on
Monday for the reason that it was be
"unnecessary," when in our opinion in,
and the opinion of the citizens that tr
the forces should have been doubled
instead of being ordered to stop Vo
work. Mfr. Ranadell. member of the adl
Levee Board, ordered work to be Bo
continued, and on Tuesday work was bo
resumed. The reports from along
the upper part of the parish are en
couraging and so far, the levees are hel
in a remarkable good condition. Fil
Along the lower part of the parish, at
where the levees are feeling the an
effects of the water ruening out of Be
the Yazoo, the reports were not so '
good Thursday morning. Along the
illawara and Salem fronts the water z
is entirely over the levee for a dis
tance of three or four miles. It is
said the water is over the first tier of th
sacks in a great many places, but wi
that with plenty of material and bar- to
rows, (that only arrived on WVednes- th
day.) the people are confident and
hopeful that they can successfully T'
keep the levee from going. th
A note was received by us yester- ct
(lay morning from Salem, stating
that the Illawara levee was thought
to be alright, and that the work on T'
Salem levee was showing to an advan
tage, and if work could hold it, it cl
would never break there. I

The Mississippi Floods.

The Eastern papers are now com
menting on the great floods in the
Mississippi valley and the extent of
the suffering and ot the destruction V
of property excites surprise in that c
part of the coantry. A' discussion j'
t is going on concerning what practi- g
cal remedies can be devised and ap- C
plied, and we trust it will result in R
some good. S1
An article in the Boston '"Adver- A
tiser" refers to the vast size of the o
tel ritory subject to inundation, in- r
1eluding 15,000 square miles in v
L Touisiana, 7,000 in Mississippi, -4,- `
600 in Arkansas, and 2,800 tn Mis- F
souri, an area as large as the States c
of Massachus'etts, Vermont, Connec
e ticut and Rhode Island combined.
In Louisiana alone the flooded dis
trict in an ordinary season produces
a cotton crop amounting to 1,500,- tl
000 bales, valued at $75,000,000.
This is but one of the items involved ,
fin the proper contrQl'of the greatest E
river on the continent. Y
The Boston paper, like many ii
others giving some thought to the J
problem of Mississippi floods, is not
clear as to what should be done to
stop the work of devastation. It
suggests that the time may come v
when some great system of storage N
" reservoirs will be constructed to p
e harness the force of the spring over
flows. Such a work it truly says,
would probably cost a sum larger C
than the amounts already expended S
on the levees. But the object is one A
of immense importance, with a hear- C
ing on national growth and prosperi- p
ty. It is well known that danger.
ous floods in the Mississippi, and in
its principal tributaries, the Mis- v
Ssoumi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumber
lalnd, are recurring more frequently .
than in former years. The aban- E
donment of the rich river bottom
lands is out of the question, and the
resources of engineering are quite
equal to the task of protecting them.
If the means are provided engineers
can do the rest in America as well as 5
in IIolland. A decision as to how
. the means shall be raised will lead
Sto a speedy settlement of the other
e branches of the subject.
When thle cost of a flood in the
Mississippi valley is reckoned up it
will be seen that the wealth destroy- t
Ced in a single sea-on would go far I
towards preventing the invasion of I
thousands of farms, with loss of life
eand distress among multitudes com. I
vpelled to abandon their homes to the I
s waste of waters. If each family
d thus afflicted could state their losses,
and add themi to the damage in
flicted upon plantations, the aggre- .
gate would nothe complete. .There
'S would still be the cost of relieving I
i the sufferers, whiich the public cheer
fully bears, but they would rather 1
use the money as a preventive if that
were made possilble. Communities
ealong the Lower Mfississippi have
not been backward in spending their
ownI means to augment the govern.
ment appropriations. The results

Sfrom different quarters of the cor

the interests concerned, esuch is cer
tain to be the final solution of the
