Saturday, June 1., 1807.
Th'e bill in the Legi:lature of Ar
kansas authorizing the issuance of
$500,000 in l,ouis for the construc
tion of levces in that district has
passed both Houses, and it is under
stood the governor will sign it.
Mr. Uriah MIl,aps of Monroe,
chairwtm of 1the drouth relief com
mittee, has made his repirt to Gov.
Foster. It shows that E£00,000 was
raised in money or supplies. The
great Tunes-Democrat alone raised
$15.000.
The loss in ancreae from the late
overflow in the districts of Arkanrýas.
Ljouii:ina andi ll i.sisippll is now
estimated at only 10 per cent; or ,)
per cent of the ovetflowrd lainds have
been replanted in cotton since the
water went down.
It is now said tl:at the waters from !
the Conradl break did not do the
damage that at first was thought.
The Mancha:c lake and large swanmp
lying back of the breaki being dry.
helped wvc y much to carry off the
large volume of water.
The Senate by' a vote of 42 to 19)
adopted an uacudment to the Tariff
bill plicing raw cotton on the dluta
Ile list at 20 per cent advalorcm.
It is the first time in the history of
tariff legislatiou that a duty on cot
ton has been incorporated in a bill.
An exchange wonders why it is
that we have so many old maid
school teachers, and the N. 0. Herald
says that that conundrum is easily
solved, and also demonstrates their
wisdom. That they do not want to
give up a forty dollar a month job
for a fifteen dollar a month man.
The city of Shreveport has been
selected as the place for holding the
annual encampment of the State
mihtia. We think Baton Rouge
should have been the place; but as
the progressive, wide awake city of
Shreveport has been named, we hope
that the encampment will be a suc
cess.
Henry Gardes, president, Walter
W. Girult, carshier, who wrecked the
the American National Bank of New
Orleans, and whose trial has been
going on for the past four weeks be
fore the United States court, were
found guilty. For once in many
years the "silk stocking" thieves
have received their just deserts.
Lional Adams, the New Orleans
lawyer, who had no supcrgr in the
State, and who is charged with cor
ruptiou and" malpractice in connec
tion with the Heart case, will now
have to face ,he accusations against
him before the tribunals of the State.
He was once a power in the city ring
pohlities.
The floods, the earthquake shocks
and the very extreme cold spell
throughout the country in the past
few weeks, has causedl the Picayune
to ask the question: 'Is it a warn
ing?" and says that these physical
disturbances and abcrrations may be
but harbingers of the tremendous
convulsions in the intellectual, moral
and spiritual worlds that are being
prepared for, and are to take place
at no distant day.

The Sundry Civil Bill that has
recently become a law, carries with
it about $2,885,000 for the improve
ment of the Mississippi river from
Cairo to the passes. The "Dirt
Mover" of Memphis, says a very
large portion of this money will be
expended in enlarging and strength
ening the levees, raising them above
the grade line of the flood of 1897.

Gov. Russell, of North Carolina,

RIVER DATA.

TIhe flood in the lo er Nissiip

that will materially ail us in solving
problems that have hitherto soiue.
what worried tlhe engineers.
One of the marked features of the
late flood was the fact that the river
was higher everywhere than ever be.
fore, and broke the record at all
points romn Memphis down This
has never been the case before.
The maximums at different points
have not come the same season.
Thus. wiile New Orleans experi
enced the highest water known in
1893, at Natchez and Vicksburg
1362 was the big flood year, at
Memphis 1890, and at Cairo 1883,
and the other towns had still other
years to look back to as phenome
nal. Thui there was no standard
flood year to measulre by or comn
p'are with. One part of the river

nlon-l rcferred to 1,56i, another to
1:=9O, another to 1803. All is
chalg-zed now. We iave a standard
-the ilt:od of 1897-- which will go
in r.c., thirnuhout the lower Mis
si,ý'ipli as the highest water ever
kn;own. The record of maximum
lti:h water at the leadling river
tolr nI, the date when this occurred,
the height of 'ater reanched and
comlarionu with previous years are
as follows:

Without going into ante hbellum
history, and taking only the record
as comu1,ared with the highest water
known since 1871, we have the fol
lowing excess this year over the
iumaximum record of the past:

It will be nticed that t(,e excess
was the greatest between llclena ,tl
Vickstburg, where crev::-.s were
most numlerous, and that both above
and below the crevasse centre,
although the record of previou'
years was broken, it was not as badly.
broken as these. Wherever the
levees held, although there was just
as inuch water in the river, the Mis
sis:ippi did-not rise as high, com
pared with previous years, as it did
in those stretches where the levees
broke.
Another feature that is very
marked and significant is seen in the
time it took the crest of the wave to
descend. We have some previous
figures on this subject, but they are
all changed by the exf:cricnce of
1807:

It took the crest of tile wave if
teen days to travel thIe short distance
fromin Memphis to IIeleua, 76 miles,
but then there were crevasses on
both sides of the river to inilterrupt.
From Ieleia to Vicksburg it took
thirteen days, and from Vicksburg
to Bed river t'ventv-seven days to go
154 miles, or six miles a day. In
all, the flood wave took fifty-fivc
dlays to go from Memphis to RIed
river a distance of 52O0 rmiles, travcl
ing at the very slow rate of ten
miles a day, or less than half a mile
an hour, although the current of the
river was so much more rapid.
We all know how rapid the
decline was from Red river down,
where the levees held. Indeed, the
maximnum high water was reached at
nearly all points south of IPd river
within a few days of each other,
the fact being that the channel was
so scoured out at New Orleans that
when the flood wave, which- had
made itself felt at Red River land
ing May 13 and at BIayou Sara May
14, reached New Orleans it found
the river well able to hold it and
caused no rise here whatever, but
simlply kept the river stationary.
With the full data it will be pos
siblc to show how much more rapid
Iy the river discharges itself with the
levees than without them, and how
niuchli larger a volume of water it can
care for without overflouw. The
facts will be a strong proof of the
value of levees in reducing the dura
tion and height of the flood when
theAse levees are built strong enough
to hold.
Mr. James M. Foster, of Caddo
parish, is said to be the most exten
sire cotton planter in the world. He
has under a single fncie over 11,000
,f land and his annual crop cx
ccds 1o,000 bales of cotton.
The late storm in Texas amountedl
to a qularter of a million of dollars.

for an exten:dled trip through Europe,
dict at sea on Saturday wlhen only a
few hlunlred miles out. The remains
(of the Archblihop were returlcnd to
I New Orleano , twhere great aorrow
was felt by all classes of citizens.
The New Orleans States says that
Archilishop Janssens had taken a
firut arl cd nlurinog ho!d upon tthe
nffectious of the peop'o of this city,
and they had cause indeed to con
gratulate themselves for having
received, with every demonstration
of -joy and respect, on Sunday,
Sept. 16, 1888, the famed Bishop of
Natchez. whose signal merit had
securredi for him deserted promotion
to the archiepiscopacy of the import

other years have so many churches,

reared to the glory of God.
