Tnc first year of the Harrison admin .

look around to see what has been eo
cotnpllshed. and I compelled to answer:
Noth'ng worthy of even a single line in
the history f iln country. The yesr
has been devoted mostly to removing
democrats from office and settling dis
putes among republicans as to which of
them should he fed at the public crib.
Amono the names placed in nomine

encampment at Quincy. was that of
"ReT. Wm. McPheeters. of Rock Isl
and." It is not necessary to state that
the Reverend William didn't succeed in
bis ambition, but it is a mystery to know
why he should claim to come from Rock
Island. The corpulent and grotesque
form of the Rev. "Mac" has not leen seen
in this city for some months, but there
has been no crape hung out over his de
parture. Tm-t Is an off year in city as well

there are not big salaries connected with

nevertheless, the city-township election
has a direct (tearing on the welfare of the

Rock Island has MMVSd into an era ot

gurs well for its future. While the gent ni
sentiment of the community is for EMU
street paving, an electric fire alarm and

WaMDMOTi N City. March 14 The irre
pressible southern question broke loose in
tho senate a;aiti yesterday, and kept the
senatorial oratory ROBBf moat of the day.
The feature of tho delate whs the reference
by Sherman to the htstory of reconstruction
to show why the negroes had been given the
suffrage. II ! 'murks were ancient his
tory to tines' who wero old enough to read
during i.vontniction days, but it is many

Hherman lvos Some Ancient History.
Sherman ask" t Kustis whether he did not
lajStTW (bat the l'ifte.'iith amendment never
would have lie -n proposed but for the fact
that laws of the southern states were depriv
ing the negro of his rights of citizenship.
Kustis axsTted that nil reconstruction
measures and constitutional amendments
were adopted by the Republican party with
the single object of Africanizing tho south
and maintaining political supremacy, and
this he characterised as the ''greatest crime
ever committed against civilized communi
Sherm.tn then said that the first act that
pasecd for the reconstruction of the southern
states had leen framed by conservative sen
ators, such as Reverdy Johnson, Trumbull
and Fessenden. The laws passed by some of
the soutli'-rn states had been so unjust to the
colored people and white Republicans in the
south thnt the people north becams con
vince 1 that the object in the s cith was to
overthrow the results of the war and de
prive the fre slrnen of the rights of citizen
ship. SuBrage t.ivrn with Reluctance.
Later on congress had reluctantly armed
the negro itb suffrage as th" otilv remedy
fitted for the ens-v There haif tssn no feel
ing of passion or hate about it. Sherman
had sometimes thought it might possibly
have lieen better not to have conferred suf
frage on the colored man, because that
result'had been nullified, ami sulfragedid not
now exi-I with colonsl men wherever it
might ls valunble to them. There was, he
said, no finding of bate existing in the north
against the south, and if the espial rights of
nil people in the south were secure 1 the peo
ple north would be satisfied. Negro suffrage
had not turinsl out as had been expected,
beenuep no man had dreamed that such meas
ures as had twn resorted to in the south
would have Uvn resorted to to, deprive the
negro of bis rights.
The Ohio Senator's Remedy. ,
Iujustic had grown out of the Fifteenth
ameii'ltii' tit. and out of it not oiiiv had the
negroes been deprived of their votes, but the
people ot the south en joy e I larger political
power than the same number of people of
the north, and until the southern states give
these colore I men their rights there would
bo dbquict and disconteu', and a feeling of
lEjESwM Congress, ho said, could not exer
cise anv control In the local affair of the
southern states, but what he insisted upon
ia thai Khars shall ! a EMI that will protect
the right of suffrage, and that that law
shall lie executed with such power that no
man dare to ex(ose himself ro its penalties,
flutter Draws n Conclusion.
Butler replying to Sherman sai i that if
tbedeliate had accomplished nothing else, it
find shown by the statements of the senators
from Ohio and Massachusetts that the suf
frage bad Isvn conferred upon tiki negro of
the south, not because bo was en tit I el to
it, not because he was qualified to exer
cise it, but because of certain laws passed by
some of the southern states immediately
after the war. Ho said the south bad heeu
ground between the uppr and nether :iill
stones of executive and legislative policy
during tho Andrew Johnson regime, and de
clared that there wai no discrimination
south agamd a man on account of his color,
u III bag to Maw I'p the Power.
II -ni I to th.- senator from Ohio thv unv
attempt to pnss hi election law such as he
had suggested would bring n fire on the rear
of the Republicans, because the northern
men n-lio had recently invested money south
would not stand it. Butler in concluding
said h would not exchange one hour of
good order in the south for all the (wilitical
power that negro suffrage had given to the
south, and if ho had the wer to-morrow he
would transfer every atom of that political
power to th north and wish the north Ood

(iirl Double Murder In Iowa.
Whitehall, Wis., March 14. Ole C.
ISletto, Ole J. Hanson, and Bertha M. Ole
son were yesterday found guilty of murder
in the first degree for complicity in the
lynching of Hans Jacob Oleson, on Sunday,
Nov. 34. Tho prisoners listened with ashen
faces as the clerk slowly read the verdict.
When ho reached and pronounced the word
"guilty," laying a slight but clearly percepti
ble emphasis thereon, tho widow of the mur
1'i ed man sank tiack in her seat with a
choking gasp. For a moment she covered
her face with iter hands, and then hurried
ly looked around as if an idea of possible
escape had occurred to her. She had heard
no further than the fatal word "guilty." Her
son and Ole Sletto received the verdict al
most stolidly, the former h -t raying little if
anv excitement. Young Hanson heard the
clerk to (be en 1, ami then liegnn to shift un
easily in his seat, I ut in a few moments he,
too, resinned nn apjiearaiice of composure.
The three prisoners were in a few minutes
taken back to th ir cells, the woman utter
ing oeo sioual low cries of terror at the fate
to Inch -he exp.-cts to be condemned.
A Sllsf!rforjr Verdict.
Among the spectators the verdict was
freely commented uion, and the majority
wero totally uiiprcpansl for such a result.
It was the general opinion that Sletto would
be convicted of murder, but it was thought
Mrs. Hanson and her son would escape with
a lighter punishment. On the whole, how
ever, the verdict has given satisfaction. The
jury was discharged and the sentence on
i lie Sletto. St , B -rtha M Oleson and Ole J.
Hnnson, with Charles Johnson, the con
fessed murderer, was deferred. Immediately
after this verdict hail been returned and the
succeeding excitement had in some measure
subsided, the parties arrested and held on
thedoublo charge of riot and lynching Ole

Generous in His Mlsfortnne.
Mr. Frawley, attorney for Charles John
son, the man who led the mob, and who had
alieady confessed to being guilty of murder
in the first den-e, addressed the court, say
ing that his client wished it understood that
the rioters were 1 d by him, and that it was
at his instigation that the crime was com
mitted. He therefore asked for the clemency
of the court on their behalf. Judge New
man immediately passed sentence upon the
rioters, fixing the peualty at f 100 and costs
of prosecution, or six months in the county
jail, except in the case of Elbert Oleson who,
has hen .already three months in jail, and
whose flue was fixod at 9B, or three months

he was drinkins: th t crowd voted to hang
him for good. Twenty men pulled the rope
and tho Victim was left swinging from the
tree. Some of the lynchers went inside and

and two of the leaders staid all night

The on v reason (,-ivi'n for tho lynching

THE WATEB COMES OVER THE LEVEE
Flowing Through the Streets for Fourteen
Hlocks Back from the River Little
Damage Done So Far and the It I ver at a
stand M inimis Situation at Arkansas
City, Mo. The People Worn Out with
Watching, and a Niagara Pouring into
the Bottoms A Perfect Sea of Water
New Orleans, March 14. The river here
at 8 a m., yesterday was lft. 8 fee.t at 2:45 p.
m. it was reported by tho harbor station at
18 feet, nine, inches.and at '':V)they reported
the water at IT feet, but it remained at that
point but a short while, when it receded to 16
feet , b inches, where it soemed to make a stand.
This was ti inches above tho record of othor
years, and the water went over the levees
all along the city front at every depression
or low place, and soon tloodel the streets
and sidewalks of a large section oT tho city.
Up town, ut the head of Jackson, Washing
tun and fsaraparu streets, tho wave washed
over the levee and submerged the streets
ami sidewalks. The same thing occurred at
other Miints, down to Poydras street.
Made the Town Very Wet.
There the water spread out ovor the broad
space occupied by the Morgan road, filled
up the low pluc s and then liean to tlow
down Poydras stro-t and out into the cross
streets on either side, covering the sidewalks
on Poydras strest as far as St. Charles
street, ami filling the gutters back to the
canals iu the rear of the city.
On Gravier str -et the water flowed freely,
completely covering the strtsst in places.
At the beat! of Caual street the water was
running over tho levee very little, but from
Custom House street to Conti the water
came over the levees freely and completely
submerged the streets and in many places
the sidewalk and lower floors of busiuess
Running OrTThrongh the Drains.
From the north side of Caual to Hos
pital street, a distance of fourteen blocks
from the river, to Rampart street, a dis
tance of eight blocks, the water flows oft in
the gutters of street drains to the drainage
canals in the rear of the city. Below Elysian
Fields street the water is also passing over
the levees in many places. On the north
side of Canal street the sidewalk in front of
the Touro buildings was overflowed. Dill's
jewelry store was inva led by the water and
other business places suffered in like man
ner. The damage done so far is not great.
The great -st damage was that sustained by
merchants who had stiirar stored in tho old
bonded warehouse on Old l.evee street
Large forces have been nt work laising the
levee with sacks tilled with earth.
Other Levees in Danger.
The levees at Algiers, the Hatch Place,
Shapp's place, and other points are iu con
stant need of,attention, and large forces of
men are engaged in watching and strength
ening the weak places. The river is up to
the tops of the emliankinents near. y every
where, but was at a stand at latest accounts.
At Greenville the levees are intact, and m
all that region they will stand from three to
five feet higher water, but the river is still
rising and the weather rainy.
Arkansas ' i t Looking for a Deluge
The Situation Alarming.
Arkansas Citv, Mo., March 14 The sit
uation hero last night was alarming. The
river continued to rise, and it was expected
that the levee protecting the town would be
swept away before long. The majority of
the people here have not slept for two nights
and are worn out with watching The
break six miles north of here is 4 nfeet wide,
and a small Niagara is pouring over into the
bottoms. It is quite tvrtain that had the
break not occurred the levee in front of the
town would have broken.
No Place Tor People to :..
Tho vast volume of woter that is escaping
above gives slight relief, but there i- as
hope held out, as the reports from Cairo
show that the water to come will overtop
the levees on both sides of the river. Three
Inches more of a rise and Arkansas City will
be inundated. The place is surrounded by
ewamps. an 1 if the levees break the water,
after flow ing through the town, will fall
back into the swamps. There is absolutely
no place for the sftkMBB to go for safety.
