Cairo, 111.. April 1.—The flood wa ters continued to rise steadily thruout last night, and at 7 o'clock today stood at a point between 52.2 and 53.3 feet. The population was early astir and the fact that the water had sub stantially passed the 52 foot mark caused considerable anxiety. All expected that the day would prove the crucial one in favor of the city. The crest of the flood is ex pected to reach here today and if the levees hold it is believed that the worst will be passed. Much trouble was experienced during the night in the drainage district along •'v- the Big Four levee. Three times slides occurred and only the valiant work on the part of those watching It saved the day. Dozens of car loads of sand bags were placed about the weak spots and serious trouble was averted. Levees Still Hold. "Water seeped thru under the con crete wall and stood in the main street of Cairo today but the levee shows no signs of weakening. Big forces of men worked all night placing sand bags and other hold-backs along the city front. Colonel Daniel Moriarty, In charge of troops, planned to attend a meet lng of citizens this morning to devise .•. means of proceeding.

Ask for Emergenoy Boats. _• Word was received from Major Gen eral Wood by the general relief com mittee that the situation would be handled the same as last year. During the early hours today an other detachment of the "Fighting Sev enth" from Chicago arrived here under Colonel Blasby and ninety naval re serves under command of Captain Mc Munn. The sheriff has requested Governor Dunne to appeal to the war depart ment to move three large boats from the Mississippi around in front of Cairo to be used in emergency. Refugees continued to leave the city all night and crowds are still waiting at the depots to get out. Water Rising Rapidly. The water is rising much more rap idly than yesterday and the demand lor workingmen became urgent. The surface in the Ohio now stands about one foot higher than the highest street level, which is the main thor oughfare of the town and immediately on the levee. In case of a break the flood waters would not rise to more than one or two feet in the buildings on that street, but all of the town back of It becomes gradually lower and most of the houses would be completely sub merged in cause of a break. Situation is Desperate. Already the situation is desperate. A large subway, the only .passage from Cairo intc^ the drainage district, has been blocked to save this city. The place was boarded up and dozens of carloads of sand bags placed to hold it secure. Most of the houses and places of bus iness in the drainage district have been abandoned already and it is the pre diction that the section is doomed. It is held that this break can not result in Cairo proper being flooded. State troops were sent out in squads of flve today each squad accompanied by a policeman, to visit the rendezvous of men who are either unwilling to have refused to work. Rev. M. H. Love, of the Methodist church, Who has had charge of relief work in former years, is again at the head of the relief committee. He will have about twenty assistants and a temporary hospital. About one-half of the population has left the city already. The fugitives weer chiefly women and children and it Is believed that should an avalanche of water sweep" over the city now it would result in little loss of life, the number of river steamers being con sidered sufficient. BREAK IN LEVEE FEARED. Big Dike at Cairo Threatens to Give Way at Any Moment. Springfield, 111., April 1.—According to word from Cairo a break in the drainage ditch levee near there is mo mentarily expected. The C., C., C. & St. Li. tracks form a part of this levee and a large force of workmen under the direction of skilled engineers in the employ of the railroad company has been at work night and Gay in an effort to save the levee. This morning a request was made of the secretary of war for the use of three or four quarter-boats which are now lying at Grayville. in which to house "the 1,500 state troops now on duty at Cairo. It! is pointed out that not only would the soldiers be better hpusfd la til* boats than on the water- soaked land, but that they could be quartered closer to the levees to te better situated to render better service in the event of a break threatened..' Adjutant General Dickson today re ceived a message from Sandusky, Alex ander county, stating that the town was filling with refugees and asking for state assistance. Crisis Passed at Cincinnati.
