Prom Vicksburg, Miss., south to New Orleans, the Mississippi river is from a half a toot to two and a halftt feet above any previous flood record. An additional rise this week of approximately, one foot from New Orleans north to Baton Rouge is predicted. 'Soundings made by army engi neers show that the record lreak thg volume of water in the big river isa moving at the rate of 8.1 feet a second, or approximately one mile an hour faster than ever be fore recorded.

Weather forecast-- howers in Loulilanta and Misissipp, i Mon day and Tuesday. New Orleans, May 5.-Large section of 15 Labipljan parlehes west of the Mississippi are under water and four other parishes have some flood water and are bound to get more this week. Approximately 100,000 persons have heen driven from their homes and about a dosen homes have been lost. Refugees are sheltered In cabins, churches and lodge buildings. Every day brings storlis of suffer ing In new sections. Protection of the remaining levees along the Mississippi river from the mouth of the Red river south is caus Ing deep concern. Millions of dollars Worth of property is at stake, and thousands of llive would be jeopardized if some of the big levees gave way. Reports were more reassuring today than on Saturday and the state engit neer said he was confident over the remaining levee on the Mississippi. Negroes Unooncerned. Lack of labor due largely to the unconcern of the negroes who have been drawing government rations has been a most serious drawback. Today Governor Sanders ordered the Louisl ana millitia to round up 500 negroes and compel them to do work on the levees. Nearly all the negroes refuse to work as long as they draw govern ment rations, Consequently "no work; no rations" was the ultimatum given today to hundreds of able-bodied ne. groes at NAthbes by Lieutenant W. E. Holliday in chairge of the supplies de pot there. It was feared that a 10-mile stretch of levee in the Bayou De Glaise sec tion would be lost owing to the dearth of labor. Engineer H. S. Douglas of Melville reported that while he had quarters for 500 laborers in the Atcha falaya district repsonses to his cell were few.

When The Missoulian's -first issue left the press, back: in the early seventies, there was not a class ad in the whole paper. The MissQulian class ad is an institution which is comparatively new. But it is the most popular form of advertising there is in the west ern Montana field. It is used by many people in many lines. The chapters of class ad history which haiveb'~f red here for a good many months haye il lustrated the variety of the lines along 'which The *Mis6ulian clabs ad is effective.

PRESSURE HAS EFFECT News Brought Prom Chihuahua is That Man Doing the Fighting Was Talked Into Withdrawing Opposi tion to Just-Deolared Provisional President of Mexico. El Paso, Texas, May F,--('lonel Pascuanl Orozco, senior, just returned from Chlhnauhun; announced tonight that the proclamation of Emillo' Van qtes Gomez as provisional president of Mexico had the full sanction of Oroco's son, the rebel commander in.chief, The elder Orotco also said that he would be minister of war in the new government until his son, when freed of his duties in the field, could take his place. Passengers, who arrived from Chl huahua said that Orosco had suc oumbed to pressure in -withdrawing opposition to Comes. "E 1l Monitor," the organ of General Orosco, the rebel commander-.n-chief, this morning's issue of which was re ceived here tonight from Chihuahua, jeers mildly at the proclamation nam Ing Emilio Vasques Gomes as pro visional president of Mexico. It declares that the news will not be well received by the revolutibnlsts in the field; suggests that Gomez re turn to hl "sphynx-like" silence at Ban Antonio and await developments. The paper obearves that the pres en.e of the "provisional president" in Mexico as quite meaningless and will have no bearing on the management and progress of the revolt, unless the situation has changed within 24 hours, El Monitor speaks for General Orusoo. The newspaper received the news of the Gomes proclamation evidently too late to secure an interview with Or osco who is at the front. In justice the incident did not ere ate even a ripple of excltemept among Mexican citisenar' who characterize the proceedings as a mystery. On the other hand, Francisco R. Pradillo, who was the impressarlo of the whole affair, Issued a statement today declaring that the inauguration of Gomes was at the Invitation of General Oroeco and had his full sanl tion. lSeven hundred words of press dis patches from the front were block aded tonight at Chihuahua and no in tlmatlon of their purport could be oh, tained at the telegraph office. e Robbery and Murder. e El Paso, May Ti.--Supplemental re a ports of the robbery of the Mormon y colony store at Colonla Dluz, in the state of Chihuahua, yesterday by a Mexican -bandits and the killing of e one of the robbers by pursuing col e onists were received here today telling of the murder of J. D. Harvey, one : of the colonista by the brother of one n of the bandits. Harvey was at work in his field when he was shot and killed by the Mexican in the presense of his three small sons. The mur derer escaped. There is much exolter' "t among h the colonists on account of tli arrfT!r ,f and while the entire country is un der the domination of rebels, the col - onists announce their intention of re ll maining for the protection of their property by force of arms if neces as ary. Telegrams have been sent Ben e ator Smoot of Utah and Senator Fall of New Mexico apprising them of the condition. How the B ant Leaders Died -.-7".'"

The tragic death of the automobile bandits Dubols and Jules i3onnot near Paris, on Atpril 28 probably means t.he breaking tap of the most daring, mnereI eas, vindkltive and skillful blnd of despernatoes with whom the police of that ei'y have ever had to elntend. The story of the last fight of the bandits with the police is dratmatte in the extreme. Dtuibuil and iBonrot took refugm in ai garage att (.'hosy -Ie Rol. six miles south of Paris. 'Ihey were attucked by a large part of lthe paolce force of Purlis, a contingent of gendarmeo, two companions of Repub lican guards and a cormpany of enl gineers. The garage was surrounded, ia cart was rlgl.ed It vlith thick numattresses as a barricade and backed slowly to ward the building. Reaching the wall In the face of a eteady fire, a lieu tenant emerged and cooly. placed, Iwo sticks of dynamite against the bultling and ignited the fuse. rheirp' .dme a terrific report and a column of smoke and debris shot skyward. Dubols was killed. Bonnot was still alive when the pollce rushed iup after the explosilon. Wlood was pouring from wounds in his 'head and chest. Tillh mob cried for the bandit' dealth, blt the police broke througlh the crowd with their prisoner. I"e died on the way to the dhospital. MARYLAND PRIMARY lRDaY DECIDES DELEGATION VOTES OF SIXTEEN DELEGATES WILL DEPEND UPON STATE'S VOTING. lialtmnore, May :. Maryland's first primary election will detide timlorrow thei votes of the II; delei'gtes thils state will send to the nationtl conventlon. The importance of the ilec(tion lI Iln creased by the fart that the law per mits no divided delegation. A victory in Mlalryland will mean 101 delegates all In a block, bound to sup port the candidate for whom they are instructed until "they conscientiously" believe he no longer has a chance of willnlnng. While this feature of the instructions had been variously in terpreted, It is conceded to hold the delegates at least for the first ballot at the national conventions. The names oTf Th'ld ,l "'sevelt and President Taft lappear ,Ii the repub lican ballot, while ti,he democrat. have the privilege of voting for Speaker Champ COlark, Governor Judson Har mon or Governor Woodrow Wilson. Active campaigns have been waged on behalf of all these candidates, and, to judge from the claims of the op posing leaders, none of them is likely to win by a wide margin. The election wil choose 129 delegates to the state convention. Each county or district will bind its delegates to vote for a national delegation favor able to the presidential candidate for whom such county or disrict declares its preference. Victory therefore will depend upon the preferential votes by counties or districts and not upon the popular preference of the state as a whole, STEAM ROLLER USED IN HAVRE POLITCS Havre, May 5.-(Special.)--A steam rollr convention, 'which was one of 'the most disgraceful Incldents in the political history of this state, was pulled off here last night at the city hall with the result that 10 Taft dele gates were named to represent this county at Livingston. The Roosevelt men had a two-to-one majority of the delegates to the local convehtion, but the county committee controlled the orlganiation and refused recognition to the R1oosvelt men, P. J,.
