n iMppnhensfon. The ds metre done by
the flood of this j ear was not enormous,
and It was not unprecedented. On the
contrary, although the flood ltelf was
vastly greater than any ever known be
fort, the Inundation of arable lands was
not mmparabfe to that of 187 1, or 1982
r,r llM. 9r far from tliere being any
significance unfavorable to the levee
sj Mem, the fact Is txactly the reverse.
The experience of this year proves that
the theory of the L nited States engineers
and the Hirer Commission is entirely
correct, ami the plan upon which they
have been proceeding wholly feasible.
The Mississippi Valley lias never known
a fl td tvtn approximately equal to that
of the present year, and yot it has been
abundantly shown that thedamagedone
has letn comparatively insignificant.
If this proves anything, it proves that
lems are rapable of confining the river
to Its channel, ami of absolutely pre
entlng the overflow of cultivated lands.

"THE SENATOR' If? CALIFORNIA.
Jtr. Ornne Tells Something AWont Al
dtenees to n Phnnaefaph.
"Senator" William II. Cratw cling as
fondly to 1 Is prroTtmrraph ami his dog
rete In Pan Frmwdsco as he M In this
city The phonograph has some ad-
-mtage over the ordinary letter which
make It very vanlnable to thrwe who
Tres the wonderful machine and can
n ike It talk It is Illegible to all who
1 1 not bare the machine, and one rnav
rrcrrd therein his most secret thrmhts
with no fear of their being readm?
even body Into whose harms the cylln
der may accidentally fall.
Mr I'rnnc appreciates this fact, and
when he has anything particularly com
ftdtnttsl to comntnntcate to his friends
he open the battery rrl hlsprmnotTapb,
places Pelc In a poMthm where Fte can
ee that the machine works ptoperly,
and pours out his sonl Info minute pin
holes on Ihe wsx n cylinder. One of
thee sonl burdened phonograms has
just reached New York The friend to
whom It was sent Inrautlously left it on
the phonoffraph In his apartments, and
a friend of his who happened In tinting
his absence Matted the machine and
listened lo the Senator's Impressions of
California ami California audiences.
Here Is what fell ttrwn the ear of the
listener In the wsll known cheety rones
of Jlr Crane-
Mt pBAn How are you all We
have leen In California abont two weeks.
lhb we were heme again In the oM Hat,
corner Flfty-firth ttreet ami Broadway.
California Is not what It used to be. We
can't complain ourselves, Imetneea has been
very blg-sll tlie theatre would hold every
nlalit. Very jieciillar audiences' The
plsy goes very well with the audiences
here, but not tbe same ss It did In New
York. Tbe points tliat tire New Yorkers
teemed lo enjoy the most, tbey seem tosllp
over here. e always have the same scene
at the end of the third act, however that
procession before tlie curtain and nliont
tlie same amount of enthusiasm.
Callfornlans are a very peculiar people.
I am not speaking personally, of course;
but as a class they seem to put themselves
up on a little plnnscle or pedestal. They
eeem to think they know a little more than
anytiody else. They do not want to know
anything about New York or Ihe Kast.
They think California Is the greatest Stale
In tbe world, and that tbey know more
than anytiody can tell them, no matter
where thoy como from. I wish that all
first clns s attractions could stay away from
here about oho year. Let tbem have some
thing cheap and not very good, and per
haps tbey would appreciate other things
1 say, and I am not speaking personally,
our bouses are very large, nnd we have
been treated very nicely, but they aecm to
know so much' You can't toll a man any
thing about New York State. He says,
"Ob, bow about California r" They know
It all I
Wc have been down the Ixty three or four
times nnd had very pleasant times. Going
on Monday to Point Ilonlta to see tho llght
houjo Inspected. I shall have a very pleas
ant sail and lunch. Inspect llebtbouses Is
something we did not have to do lately,
esptelally In hew York wo never Inspected
llahtlic ine, as yon know. Home of the
boy a will be doing It here all winter, though.
Je hate been over tn Santa Cruz ami en
M'jl the Sunday trip very much, but I
man ue tieiiaiiied wuen We start for home.
Ob, bow I shall want to start and get Into
New York, and wheu we come we shall be
there for two or three days Hop you will
tome up and see us. Pete l Itrsl rite,
