new water works and for other local
reasons. There was a total vote of
over 05,000, as compared with 78,000
last November, being an unusually
large vote tor a local or spring election.

Memphis, April G Tho Hood
outlook at this place Is exceedingly
dismal. While thousands nre working
nnd lending every energy to save
the levees, their labor threatens to be
of uo avail. Slowly but' surely the
waters continue to climb, except
when brief respite is given from time
to time by new breaks in the levee.
Tho situation Is gelling ib be one
of terror from tho fctacdpolht of the
food supply and tho horrors of fam
ine actually stare some sections in
the face.
Scores of families drircn from their
homes have nothing to cat, uod being
dependent on charity have found
thcuisclvc3 on the verge of starvation
from tho exhaustion of the lobal supplies.
Deaths from starvation will
undoubtedly occur unless upcidy re

Seeking Aid From the National
Memphis. Tenn., April G. The
prediction made In these dispatches
Friday that great disaster to the Mississippi
Delta would follow- the breaking
of the levee nt n point on the cast
side of the river north of He'ena,
Ark., has bccnteiribiy realized.
The break at Flower Lake, whicli
occurred yesterday morning, has it
rapidly grown from u dozen feet in
length to n thousand. Til's was the is
conditloDof the crevasse 3 citcrdny af
ternoon at I o clock, when an Associated
Press representative left the
leveo north of the break. Effort is
being made to tie each end of the
levee, but owing to the dilllculty in
getting material from the railroad,
live miles the success of the
effort is doubtful. This crcynsso is
at the bead of tho delta, and will
eauso an ovcrllow of the northern
tier of counties in Mississippi, with
the exception of a part of Tunica. of
The question that now confronts
the planters is the duration of the
llood. If the water is out of the
delta 13' May 5 n crop of cotton
can be grown, but cotton planted as
late as May 10 has l.ttle chance of
maturing before frost. There is still
another danger. These crevasses of
must all be closed before the June
rise or there would be a second over-How. is
The delta country produces
annually no lc) than half a million
bales of cotton.
The river at Memphis was a

appeal was issued :
The cit3 of Memphis lias beeu providing

some little outside assistance for several

Councilman Livingston Says
They Were Issued
Tho City PnyH $1,000 n ycr In-
Which Will
Ho Saved.
Councilman Livingston was seen
today relative to his request made iu
tlio council last night for the appointment
of a committee to investigate
the validity of the 8100,000 city
bonds owned by the Chicago, St.
Louis and Paducah railroad.
He stated that he had already investigated
the matter thoroughly.and
had discovered the issue was illegal,
as the vote authorizing the issuance
was contrary to law, bonds for two
railrcads being voted on the samo
The Kentucky statutes expressly
forbid that city stocks, bonds, etc.,
for any . two railroads, .. or anvthiti!? f o
else, snail uo voted the fcamu dar.
This would render the issue null and
void, apparently.
The ci y has $100,000 in stock in
uic roao, ami pays I 'a per cent, per
annum on tlie bonds. Since 1887,
when the bonds were issued, about
$35,000 has been paid out of the
city treasur3'. If the council decides
that the bonds were notlegalby issued
this will exempt the city not
only from the further payment
of interest, bit the piincipd as well
and will save 51,500 annunlb. The
stock is not worth II fty cents on the
"1 have explained the matter to
several,'' said Mr. Livingston, "and
only one said anything about
being repudiation. I say it
not repudfa'iou any more
ban where a bank discounts
note with Livingston & Co.'s sig
nature and when it is presented to
inc 1 say it is a forgc. We are not
responsible for the mistake nnd the
city was not legally authorized to issue
the bonds. Hence if it is illegal
is unjust, and the city's money
should not be paid out unless it is
tLjht and legal to pay it out."
Hlight of Turkish Itule.
A look at the history of the Island
Samos since its cscapo from direct
Turkish rulo is proof enough that the
struggle of the Greek race everywhere
to shake off Turkish oppression
is justiflc I by every moral and
material reason. Samos is much
smaller than Crete and contains only
150 square miles, with n population
about 00,000. Hut the same unconquerable
spirit that exists in Crete
found in Samos, and it won virtual t
nutonoun' from the Sullnn nearby
fifty years ago. Iu tho Greek
revolution of 1821 Samos took
determined part, and for
nine years defied the Turkish forces.
After the battle of Nnvarino, which
established Greece as nu independent
nation, the Powers decided that
Samos, for geographical reasons,
should still belong to Turkey nud be
subject to n Turkish overlord. The
Samians refused to submit for two
years, and it was then arranged that
thoy should be granted tho light to
elect the'r owu couucil, with a president
jo.ninatcd by the Sultan but a
Greek in leliobn. lteyoud this, the
island was required to rsy to the
M'llan an nnuual subsidy of S1G,500.
'1 Ins nnaucmcut was submitted lo
unl'l 1S9, when a fresh outbreak
was threatened in Simiios on account
the abuses and exactions of the
Turkish representatives. The Sultan
had no relish fur another contest
with the islanders, and further lights
govern ihemsclves were granted.
These included the clect'on of a
nssembty, empowered to choose
iheir own pieddent. A senate also
was formed, of whom the Tuikish
p-'nee named one-half. Public
