Washington, April 22. The bureau of
statistics of the treasury department has
made the following report on the dam
age caused agricultural interests by the
Mississippi river flood: "Since the pub
lication on April 12 of a statement rela
tive to agricultural interests of the sub
merged districts of the Mississippi val
ley south of Cairo, Ills., the area under
water has been considerably extended.
This extension is below Vicksburg,
Miss., but on the right or west side of
the river, and Is mainly dus to a break
2.C00 feet In width In the levee at Biggs.
The outflow of water at this point has
totally submerged four parishes (count
ies) of Louisiana and partially over
flowed five others, while a break at La
Fourche, crossing- in the southern part
of the same state, has resulted in the
submergence of an additional area of
nearly 300 square miles in La Fourche
and Terre Bonne parishes. In thi3 nsw
ly submerged region there was in 1830
a total population of 82,356, in the pro
portion of four colored persons to one
Value of the Property In naner.
"The region contained at the la?t cen
sus 7,747 farms, with a total area of
over 1.0CO.O0O acres, of which 420,000
were improved. Of this last mentioned
area 213,000 acres, or over one-half, were
last year devoted to cotton, over 91,000
acres to corn. COCO acres to sugar cane,
2,000 acres to hay and an inconsiderable
acreage to other crops. The total value
cf these farms, including fences and
buildings, but exclusive of their mova
ble equipment, was in 1800 close upon
$11,000,000. and the value of the imple
ments and machinery upon them was
over I100.000. On Jan. 1 of the present
year they contained live stock to the
value of 1,500,000, and so lately as the
first of March last they were estimated
to have still on hand about $800,000
worth of the crops of last season. The
total value of the farms submerged by
the breaks in the levees that have oc
curred since the 10th inst.. with their
farm Implements, live stock and crops
on hand, is therefore close upon $14.-
What the Region Produced.
"This region produced last year near
ly 100.000 bales of cotton, over 9,000,000
pounds ef sugar, over 1,300.000 bushels
of corn, besides hay, potatoes, oata and
other minor products, the entire produc

low prices that have prevailed, of more
than $4,2;.0,0C0. The total area sub

46.M5 farms, with a total area of 4,904,

Kentucky Repnbllcans Will Try To Agree
an Another Candidate.
Frankfort. Ky, April 22. Dr. Hunter
finished writing his communlctaon to
the caucus called at his request for 8
o'clock last night and then left with his
wife on the 7:25 C. and O. train for
Washington. lie came out for Deboe
yeterday afternoon and got all his
friends at work for B-eloe, but the lat
ter and his friends were evidently wor
ried that the doctor should have gone
away before a successor to him had been
dictated by him. When the caucus met
at 8 o'clock Chairman Jones stated Its
purpose and the statement of Br. Hun
ter was read. The pith of it is as fol
lows: "For the consummation of the
policies of the Republican administation
just now being inaugurated a Republic
an eenator from Kentucky should be
elected. I will not Btand In the way of
such result. To that end I have
requested that you be called together
that I might make to you this commu

five weeks ago, in order that you may
at once, and without delay, select, if
possible, some one among the many dis
tinguished and worthy Republicans of
our state on whom ail can unite and
whose election may thus be assured."
After the doctor's communication had
been read there was an attempt to go
on and agree on a man, but the caucus
finally concluded to adjourn for a few
days to canvass the situation.
