Test uf the Amendment,
Washisuton, May 28. Mr. Holman
baa tukun up tha question of the outlet
system for the Mississippi in a practical
form. Ho has always bfen oue of the
most earnest ami stuiliorui friends of the
Ohio and Mississippi river interest. Ha
is now one of those who bt'liov that the
recent flood hits thrown grave doubt
upon tlie elliiuiey uf the levee iyntein
alone. He rhurefore believes it a wise
thing to make practical triiil of the out
let system. If it aum-eds it will save
millions of money and property: and the
cost of trying it is not great. Mr. Hoi'
nian's pmpiwtion, an submitted in the
form of an amendment to the river and
harbor bill, is as follows:
