that Ellerbe refused to g've her up, and

A VIGOROUS PROTEST.
Idleness May be Encouraged by the
Washington, April 22.?Aoiy of deep
distress has come to tho War Department
from Mississippi and a bitter protest
against the efforts of the persons who are
engaged in the distribution of Govern?
ment relief to flood sufferers to carry on
the work so ns to avoid encouragement to
idleness among the lahorers.
At Helena there are a great number of
negroes who have come into town from
their overllowcd cabins to iret food and
shelter. To day a telegram came to the
War Department from a committee hend
ed by Rev. W. J. Smith, declaring many
people of Tunca county and the ndjaceut
couutry were iu grent straits and were
suffering for supplies, which their em?
ployers refused to allow them to secure,
on the ground that it would amount to
an interference with the labor market.
The department oillcials are unable at
this distauce to judge of tho merits of
this application, and probtibly will refer
it to local officers. It bus been feared
from the first, however, that there was a
very great element of danger in indis?
criminate distribution of government
supplies among the laboring classes in
the Hooded sections, as the planters might
find it impossible to get suilicient farm
labor to make crops or repair the dam?
ages resulting from the Hoods if the hands
were furnished with unlimited free food
aud relieved from the necessity cf labor?
Sterctnry Alger to day received the fol?
lowing tolvtjram from the mayor and city
council of (-irafton, N. D:
"The ruling floods alons the lied river,
bordering Walsh and Pembitm counties,
aggravated by cold, high wiuds, have
caused great destruction of property and
suffering. Buildings, with ??otitents,
stock and seed grain, have been swept
away. Immediate relief is necessary or
great suffering will prevail. The require?
ments etc., arc beyond local aid. '?he
assistance of the (Government is invoked,
and nt once. Can you aid us? If so, wire
funds to be distributed."
In response to this appeal Secretary Al?
ger telegraphed Major Sano, at Ft. Snel
ling, Minn., thearmy officer who recently
visited the vicinity of Grafton.and who is
now nt St. Paul, Minn , to return imme?
diately to the Hooded districts in North
Dakota and render all possible relief.
