W. 1B. Dictcy of Louisiana, has
been appointed by President Mc
Kinley to the ecnsulate at Callao,
Peru, the position held by Gen. Leon
4 Jastrcmnski. Dickey is well known in
East Carroll, where he resided for a
number of years and left with a two

which remains that way up to the

Mrs. Richard King. of Texas,
owns more land and cattle than any
other woman in the United States,
and it is said that there are several
others in Texas and Montana who own
large ranches. Mrs. King owns
1,250,000 acres of land or nearly
2000 squaureiles. From her front
door to her gate is thirteem miles,
and she can drive sixty-live miles in
a straight line without getting off her
land. There are on her ranch over
200,000 head of improved cattle, and
it cost $100,000 annuilly to run the
estate.

EOR LEVEES.
N. O. Times-Democrat.
One of the striking features of the
hecaring: bfloe the Mississippi River
Ccoi, ission in New York Thursday
was the unanimity u ith which C Iery
oi:e ,f the sleakirs declared ini favor
f vie'es. There I-were, as we have al
:':i . njticd. :, n unusually large nlt!m
a of representa, tiv es present from the
-!!,i'i; s pi h:l d its Govern or there,
ie Co'igressit's .iii, tIe eigiiln'ers of
i,rth its lev,. districts, and a half
,!,z.:: thiers deeply il terested in riycr
Ar!aisas' delegation was healcd by
Scnatin Ierry. In addlitidn there were
three, Cgr.ssien )'present, ants many
ot!, er lpti(tuinent citizens firom Eastern
Ark:iansa:, which suffe'red so much from
Sh, overllo v.
Fromi Louisiana there were Congress
ranl Iaird, representatives from the
;t:,te Levee Board and from each one
of th( eight ilistrict levee boards.
Final!y, even Missouri had a Con
Pres- ou and other prominent citizens
;,r(es':t to look after its interests in the
Now MLadrid district.
TheI se several delegations represented
all the diversi interests of the alluvial
settions. They included men: deeply
interested in the regulation of the Mis
s5isippi, and who have had the best of
olpportutnitics to study it during the
greatest flood of recent times, and to
see tle weakness or value of levees.
Many of them c:tme from districts
where there had been serious crevasses,
andI hea"y losses in consequence. It is
imlpossihle, therefore, to conceive of a
gatther'ii g better able to speak on the
subject of river improvement in the
alluvial districts and to know the exact
value of levees.
When such a gathering, therefore.
speaks out in favor of levees, not only
unanimously, but with more enthusi
asm than heretofore-when, therefore,
these forty or fifty delegates, all tilor
oughly acquainted with the subject,
who have made it their study, who
have been in the front throughout the
late struggle and watched all the
vagaries of the river, speak out con
cerning it, their voice must carry con
viction to the country and set at rest
those few journalistic athletes who
declared for Cowdenism during the
height-of the flood upon the vague and
sensational rumors sent out from here
and before they had any data of im
portanice, or knew the full effect of the
flood.
It was to be expected that Louisiana,
particularly Southern Louisiana, should
speak out for levees and join with Con.
gressman Baird in declaring that "this
flood has demonstrated that the levee
system has been the salt ation of Louis
iana," but Mississippi and Arkansas
were differently situated. They had
suffered greatly from their levees
breaking; but they were found none
the less more than ever conceived, by
the expericnce of the present flood, that
by means of levees and levees only
would the fury of the river be restrain
ed and the people of the lower Missis
'sippi assured protection against over
flow.
Senator Berry, who comes from the
mountainous portion of Arkansas,
,spoke earnestly for levees, and thought
that if a unanimously favorable report
could be issued from the Senate inves.
tigating committee it would be possi
ble to get from Congress a sufficient
appropriation to carry through our
levee system, not piecemeal, but in its
entirety.
Gov. McLaurin and Congressman
Catchmngs, of Mississippi, declared that
the confidence of their people in levees
had not been weakened, but only
strengthened by the experience of the
late flood.
'This is as we supposed. It iQ true
that the Cowdenites and outletters in
dulged in a great deal of shouting dur
ing the height of the flood; but they
shouted too soon and without any
knowledge of the facts. It is as though
we should propose to abolish railroads
because of an accident due to careless
ness, There have been several acci
dents with the levees this year, but
they were not proportionately larger
than with the railroadr or steamships.
The suggestion of onie of the speak
ers that at least 95 per cent of the
people in the alluvial sections of the
lower Mississippi are in favor of levees
is certainly no exaggeration; and as
all the speakers agreed, they are now
more strongly in favor of levees than
ever before.
A very strong showing was made be
fore the Mississippi River Commission;
it is to be hoped that the value of
levees will be demonstrated with equal
satisfaction before the:Senate commit
tee appointed to investigate the sub
ject, for if a strong report is secured
from that body it will, as Senator
Berry 'eclares, aid materially in induc
ing Congress to make an appropria
tion for the river that will assure the
successful completion of our levee
system.
River Commission.
A NeiYork special of June 26th, says:
After working two days on its report,
the Mississippi River Commission con
eluded its labors this afternoon and
the non-resident commissioners left for
their homes in the' west and south.
The commission has gone over the re
port to the secretary thoroughly atnd
made many important revisions.
Congress appropriated $2,933,033 for
levees, etc. It is the duty of the com.
mission to heair delegates from the
various districts on the appor'tonment
of this sum and then makeeout their
report accordingly. The commission
apportioned $400.000 for improvement
of the river, $2,000,000 for levees and
$533,03 for the general expenses of
the commission, preservation of the
banks, ad revertments, the purchase
of new plant and the putting of the
plant now at hand in proper condition'
