KEOKUK, Iowa, July 20. Explora
tion of the Hooded district of the Mis
sissippi river from Keokuk south shows
conditions beyond the appreciation or
realization of any but persons of long
experience with the Father of Waters
in Its most destructive moods. The
situation Is growing worse hourly.
There Is absolutely not tho slightest
chance of stopping the Hood which Is
a dozen times the most costly of any in
the history of the great river above St.
A newspaper correspondent went over
the worst damaged area today on the
steamer Silver Crescent and found
p cry where the greatest crops ever
known In this region under water deep
enough to Moat n steamboat. Resi
dents of the river cities give a mass ot
details, all tobe generalized In losses
aggregating many millions 'of dollats.
Hundreds of farmers, llch ten days ago
are penniless and homeless, and hun
dreds are watching and praying tifut
the great levees which are now their
bulward against additional loss and, In
many caBes absolute penury, will hold.
Careful estimates place the loss up to
today at about $6,000,000, with every
piospect that It wljl be increased by
two or three millions by the rise above,
which has not yet reached tho lower
st i etches of the river. Most of this
loss is on the Missouri side of the river
between Keokuk and Hannibal.
Passing the water-lapped Jumber
yards of Keokuk, the mouth of the Des
Moines river Is seen to be nearly two
miles wide. Normally there ate two
mouth and an Island delta Covered with
farms, which are now under raging
Alexandria was protected to the last
by the Egyptian levee, the breaking of
which would have sent four feet of
water over the town. Gregory Is sub
merged except the White Church, In
which services were held today. The
congregation from the country reached
the house of worship the railroad
track, which was still above the Hood,
in a waste of waters miles wide. Other
towns and cities on the islands are be
yond the danger line.
Immense fields are seen In a great
lake with the shore line visible only
with a glass, where the high bluffs
bound the bottoms. Islands dotting the
river at Us normal stage have disap
peared except for the tops of trees or
fringes of high shore willows protrud
ing slightly, like a circular green coral
reef. Occasionally a house on piles Is
seen, but generally only roofs protude
to mark the center of -farms of corn.
On the edge of the Hood corn gradually
rises on a slope, tassels, tops, ears and
stalks appealing In order. In a few
half-submerged fields Is shocked wheat
In the background, the remnants of
In the middle of the present river the
tracks of the St. Louis, Keokuk and
Northwestern shore, are now a few In
ches above the water and under It in
some stretches. Shore lights for pilots
are standing In the mldHt of a waste o
waters where steamboats can run over
them. The river Is five to ten miles
wide and seventy miles long, and an
other great lake is added to the geogra
phy. All this territory was practically
covered with corn a fortnight ago, es
timated to yield 75 to 100 bushels to the
1 amusement and enjoyment. The sports
I will be on horseback and consist of
competitions In which members will
race while driving n polo ball before

getting a cigar at one stand, the light

pedimenta, such as open umbrellas

LAST INCOME TAX DAY
ASSESSOR'S OFFICE OPEN THIS
A Rush of Income Tax Statements at
tho End About S00 Were Filed
The otllce of the Tax Assessor will he
open from 7 to 9 o'clock this evening,
to receive Income Tax returns. Today
Is the last day for the filing of such
statements according to law, and
there Is the same rush of tardy tnx-
i payers as last year.
Yesterday about SOO statements were
turned In nnd sworn tb over the coun
ter of the tax ofilcc. A crowd of peo
ple with statements and with ques
tions to ask kept clerks busy all day.
People of Honolulu have had one year's
experience with the act and know more
about making returns than they did
last year, but there are still many er
rors In the returns and It will prob
ably take some weeks to straighten
them all out.
One question very often raised Is as
to Income that comes from the Main
land, many people thinking that they
need not include such Incomes. The
' act, however, Includes all money re
I clved from nny vocation that Is carried
I on here, without reference to where
the money come from. In the matter
of deductions there are many ques
tions. Under the head of "expense"
and "losses" a number of items which
will have to be stricken out are placed
In the returns.
This morning a crowd was on hand
early, and statements came In fast all
, day. Owing to the rush ,nnd In order
to give all a chance to get their state
ments In, It was decided to keep the
, oillce open this evening, from seven to
