LEVEES OR OUTLETS.
How Can the Mississippi be Kept Within Banks? Are Levees or Outlets the Best Protection? The Senate Discusses the Merits of the Two Systems. Varying Opinions Expressed—Other Con gressional Proceedings—Commit tee Reports, Etc. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Washington, April 28.—1n the Senate today there was an extended discussion on the question of whether the levee system or the outlet system, or a com bination of the two, was best fitted to protect the people of the Lower Missis sippi valley from floods. Various opin ions were expressed. Reagan said his investigations had convinced him that the levee system was a failure, as it had proved in the Yellow river, China, where the bed of the river was raised, and devastating overflows, causing the loss of millions of lives, resulted. The outlet system was the true relief for the overflows of the Mississippi. Berry held that the levee was the only true system, and said nearly every en gineer who had anything to do with the river held that view. Harris had believed in the levee sys tem, but the events of the last two months had greatly shaken his confi dence in it, and he suggested the ap pointment of a commission of scientists to be charged with the duty of a thorough investigation of the subject. Eustis said the steamboat captains were unanimously in favor of the levee system as against the outlet system. Walthall said as far as he knew the peo ple along the river had absolute faith in the levee system, and were generally op posed to the outlet system. He firiMly believed that if the outlet system was adopted, it would not be long before the Mississippi river would become useless for navigation. After further discussion, the busi ness of the morning hour was proceeded with. Blackburn introduced a bill for the admission of Arizona. Referred. The Land Forfeiture bill was taken up, and after some discussion went over without action. The Senate bill incorporating the Society of Sons of the American Revolu tion was read. Plumb made some satirical remarks about efforts to encourage patriotism "lying around loose in the country," and moved to amend the bill by provid ing that its privileges be extended to the Grand No quorum voted, and without action on the bill, the Senate adjourned. House Proceedings. The Speaker laid before the House the message of the President, returning, without his approval, the bill to allow Ogden, Utah Territory, to increase its indebtedness. Referred to the commit tee on Territories. The Legislative, Executive and Judicial Appropriations bill was passed without division. The House then went into committee of the whole on bills relating to the District of Columbia. The pending bill was for the estab lishment of Rock Creek park. In the course of the debate Hooker, of Missis sippi, alluded to the Confederate graves in Arlington cemetery, on the head boards of which is carved the word "rebel." He did not object to this. "Rebel" was not a word of reproach. It only showed that they were the men led by tbe second great rebel of America, Robert E. Lee, George Washington hav ing been the first. The committee having risen, the Rock Creek Park bill was defeated. Hemphill, of South Carolina, moved reconsideration, and the House ad journed. CONGRESSIONAL NOTES. Committee Meetings, Bills Reported, New Bills, Etc. Washington, April 28. —The Senate Republican silver committee was in ses sion two hours this afternoon, but made no apparent substantial progress. The House committee on war claims ordered an adverse report on Funston's bill appropriating $882,390 to reimburse Kansas for moneys expended in the set tlement of claims for property captured or destroyed by Confederate forces. Representative Funston, from the committee on agriculture, today reported to the House the Senate bill providing for the inspection of meats for exporta tion, and prohibiting the importation of adulterated articles of food and drink, etc. An amendment to the bill makes it include drugs. ■ The House committee on public lands today directed a favorable report on the Senate bill (with amendments) to pro vide for the acquisition of land for town sites and commercial purposes in Alaska. The bill changes the capital of the Ter ritory from Sitka to Juneau. The Senate committee on Territories today ordered a substitute reported for the bill referred to the committee to leg alize the acts of the Arizona Territorial Legislature. The substitute will legalize the acts of all the Legislatures, includ ing the last one, reserving to future Leg islatures the power to amend or repeal any acts so legalized. The expenses of Dolph's Senate inves tigating committee are about $2,000. Several correspondents who were kept under subpuena fifty-one days, although only testifying twice, have been paid $153 each, and are in hopes that another investigation will be instituted. Senator Plumb reported from the committee on public lands, with amend ments, the bill authorizing the President to cause certain lands withdrawn from the market for reservoir purposes, to be restored to the public domain under the homestead law. The bill, as amended, provides that where any lands have been sold or disposed of by the Government, the title snail be confirmed, but the lands shall remain subject to the right of the United States to construct and maintain dams for the purpose of creat ing reservoirs in aid of irrigation. Ingalls today introduced a bill grant ing a pension of $6 a month to all per sons who served in the late war not less than three months nor more than one year; $8 to those serving more than a year and not over 800 dayu, and those who served over 800 days, one cent for ■each day's service. No person who is THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 29, 1890. worth $5,000 or over at the time of ap plication shall be entitled to this pension. CALIFORNIA FRUITS. Their Popularity Increasing in the New York Market. New York, April 28.—Speaking of the fruit trade, the Journal editorially says : It is a noticeable fact that the Cali fornia green fruit has beenjkept longer in the New York market this year than ever before. The last of the late pears are being closed out, while the first new fruit, cherries, will be in market in about two weeks. This makes California green fruit obtainable in the Eastern markets the year round. This is partly the re sult of improved cold storage improve ments. Table olives have gone up 70 per cent in Spain, the country from which most of the olives brought to the United States are imported. The cause is a short crop. Last year about 200,000 gallons of Spanish olives were brought to this country. This year scarcely two thirds as many will be imported. California prunes are still away out of sight. There are none to sell at any fig ures. California raisins are quoted at from $2.15 to $1.50. FARNELL'9 MOTHER. The Old Lady Again Appears in the Role of a Mendicant. New York, April 28. —Mrs. Delia Parnell, the mother of the Irish leader, writes to a morning paper contradicting the story to the effect that she is not destitute, and reiterating her former statement. She says: "Pen and pencil fail to portray how extreme my case is, and none have told my intense suffer ings. From cold, too, I was suffering for weeks. I would not now be alive but for benevolent people who provided for me. For I was fast, at my advanced age, dy ing of cold and starvation." PRECIOUS METALS.

Operations of the Road During the Year '89 Earnings, Indebtedness, Mileage, Etc., in Detail. Cold-Blooded Murder Near Fresno—The Murderer Pursued and Shot—A Young Miller's Horrible Death. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Boston, April 28.—The Union Pacific issued its annual report today. While the Union Pacific proper shows substan tially the same result as for 1888, the whole system shows a comparative loss in surplus of $407,000, the surplus for the year being $1,145,000, against $1,552,000 the previous year. This loss President Adams states is due to the decreased earnings of the Oregon Railway and Nav igation Company, by reason of deficient crops in Oregon and Washington. The whole system, 5,180 miles, shows gross earnings", $31,070,000; increase, $875,000; net earnings, $1,196,000; in crease, $735,000; income, $12,033,000; increase, $75,100. There is an increase of $269,000 in in terest charges; $195,000 in sinking funds; $181,000 in discount, etc.; $96, --000 in profit and loss. The deficit of the St. Joseph and Grand Island decreased $12,000; that of the Oregon Railway and Navigation in creased $387,000; that of the central branch decreased $62,000; that of the Montana Union increased $107,000; that of the Kansas City and Omaha in creased $47,000. * The total expenditures were $10,888, --000, an increase of $1,158,000; balance, $1,145,000; decrease, $407,000. The earnings on stock were 1.88 per cent., last year 2.55 per cent. The company expects as important advantages from the consolidated Union Pacific, Denver and Gulf, as from the Oregon Short Line and Utah. To pre vent another contest with the Northern Pacific for the control of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company, and to reduce the rental charge, the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern purchased the majority of the Oregon Railway and Navigation stock, the money to carry which could be better borrowed at one per cent, less than the rental which had to be paid. This represents an addition of $7,095 000 in the investment account, to be further increased in completing the transaction, by $5,000,000. It is intended to issue collateral trust five-per-cent. bonds of the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern, secured by the stock of the Oregon, Railway and Navigation Company. The total debt due the Government December 30th was $50,903,000; amount to the credit of the sinking fund in the United States treasury, $9,886,000; in crease, $1,074,000. For the year the gross earnings per mile for the whole system were $6,018, against $5,989 the previous year, and net earnings $2,168, against $2,074 the pre ceding year. 1 The average debts per mile in the system have been reduced $6,200 dur ing the last six years, and are now $28, --963 per mile, compared with $35,170 per mile June 30, 1884. The Oregon Railway and Navigation Company had gross earnings of $6,016, --000, a decrease of $364,000; net earnings, $1,566,000; decrease, $677,000. The betterment account was credited with $128,000 as compared with the debt of $141,000 last year, so altogether its earnings have been decreased by $290, --088. The net deficit for the year was $736,000; increase, $387,087. The Short Line and Utah Northern had to assume this deficit, and its account for the year stands as follows: Gross earnings, $6,512,345; increase, $741,805; net earnings, $2,628,665; increase, $315, --596; total income, $3,077,637; increase, $711,093; bond interests, $1,834,879; in crease, $68,154; discount, interest, etc., $216,754; increase, $80,488; loss on Oregon Railway and Navi gation, $736,205; increase, $387,087; surplus, $289,797; | increase, $175,365. The Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern earnings will be increased by the completion of 212 miles of Oregon Railway and Navigation branches. Bonds will be sold from time to time for the reimbursement of the cost of ex tensions. CRUSHED BY THE COGS. A Young Miller's Horrible Death at Petalama. Petaluma, Cal., April 28.—This morn ing about 8:30 o'clock, Dumas Acosta, a young man about 21 years old, employed as assistant miller at" the Golden Eagle flouring mills, of this city, got caught in the cogs and was crushed to death.

He hung by his left arm, which was dreadfully crushed, and had to be cut off before he could be gotten out. His left shoulder, back and one ieg were also dreadfully crushed, and his breast torn open.
