The Republican State, League of il

The levee advocates are much
elated over the fact that with a
stretch of nearly 1200 miles of levee,
lwith the highest water ever known by t
three feet, that there is not much
over a mile of crevasses fram Arkan
sas City to Net Orleans. Too much
liLjise cannot be given the United
Stattshoffcers for the judicious man
ner in which.they worked with the 1
Louisiana levee officials.
: Weregret to see that the Orleans
Levee Board has postponed action in
regard to giving railroads the right
to bulld,their tracks on the levees
arousd the city. It would be a big
burden off the tax payers, when it is
S laken into eonsideraiUQn that the rail
roads using the levees would keep
them up at their own expense. Give
tbema this privilege, which is little
enoough, for thebs amount of money
spent by them in keeping the water

the last three weeks has been going

found many doubting Thomases. In let

one day on the land side, two feet be- port
the low the water level, a hole in the levee acct
the six feet deep and three inches in diam- '
will eter., at the junction of the Wilson Point ing
anti 'Opossum Point levees. He thought app
l the at first some one had been trying to mei
erful cut the levee, and he put a watchman B F
near the place. For two days this man S B
saw no one but a bird going near the Pur
hole. Mr. Hamlin then set a steel trap
e of in the Lole and caught in it a king
a on fisheri. Mr. Ransdell, on Mr. Ham
lin's invitation, went there to investi
