The Overflowed Country
BAYOU SAn La April 2tThe real condi
tion of things In the overflowed district I just
coming t light No pen is equal to the task of
l picturing the devastation of the country or the
1 desolation of the people The entire front of
Pointee Coupee is under water Most of the
levees are gone and the water back of the
levees i so deep that hundreds of lives are in
jeopardy The small stretches of the levee still
standing are crowded with men women and
children side by side with horses mules and
cows In an old raised gin house 500
raied gi 5 negroes
were found huddled together The con
dition of the unfortunate blacks was
pitiable They were piteously begging to
be taken to some place of safety
The crevasse at Allcndale will overflow thirty
of the finest plantations on the river and will
reach to Reiche county several days in advance
of the Morgansca water and Colonel Rivers
says that when this water joins with the Mor
gansea it will flood the entire Atchafalaya La
Fourche and Teche counties The damage is
incalculable The distress in the overflowed
district cannot be told The Texas Pacific
boat succeeded yesterday in saving 203 people
from the back country around Morgansca
Later Ruin and desolation meet the eye on
every side In Pointee Coupee parish the de
struction is complete Not a plantation is left
above the water not a levee is unbroken while
hundreds of families are homeless thousands of
stock have been drowned and from the meagre
reports received from the interior it is quite
probable that human life has been sacrificed to
the 100d Standing on the deck of the relief
steamer Dacotah last evening the full
extent of the disaster could be seen Group
ing together on the little knoll between
the broken levees through which the water
rushed with unmanageable fury were scores of
people both white and black some with babies
i their arms while others had dogs secured by
cord Many of them had nothing else in tho
world except the clothes they wore on their

E hvd cg
backs Whenever the Dracotah discovered a
scene like this the stage was swung out and the
stricken ones taken aboard Equally l as sad a
scene was the poor dumb cattle standing in the
water actually starving

The Reasons for the Removal of
Postmaster Barratt
A CIVIL SERVICE REFORM DEBATE
I the House RepresentativesHoars Fed
eral Election Bill Tlie Penalties for
Violating Its Provisions
WASHINTON April 23ESpecial telegram to
THE HERALD At a late hour last evening and
after a long conversation with the President
PostmasterGeneral Wanamaker decided to ap
point Irving A Benton as postmaster at Salt
Lake to succeed Mr Barratt the present in
cumbent Tho reason given by Mr Wanamakcr
for the selection of Mr Bentotf that tho ofllce
has been under Democratic control for the past
four years and three months and under the cir
cumstances there was no impropriety iu making
the change I may be doubted however if the
administration would have reached this con
clusion but for the persistent efforts
of the several members of the Utah
commission now in the city No later than yes
terday these gentlemen called upon Mr Van a
maker and assured him that Mr Barratt ex
pected to go that he wanted to go and thai i
would be in short a personal favor to him to
be permitted to step down and out The post
mastergeneral knew the commissioners to be
truthful men and he believed them and so to
day Mr Bentons nomination was sent to the
Senate and he will no doubt be promptly con
firmed I may be said in passing that there is
no truth in the statement that the report of the
inspector who recently visited Salt Lake so
verely censures Mr Barratts management of
the office The report I am assured contains
no reflection upon Mr Barratt that would in
the remotest degree furnish a pretext for his
enforced withdrawal from the service

Greenhalge of Massachusetts made a vigor
ous speech in favor of civil service reform
Coleman of Louisiana opposed It
Henderson of Iowa said civil service reform
had come to stay and the political party that
deserted i would not stay in power and ought
not I is not true that this administration had
not enforced the law President Harrison i

boysMcKinley of Ohio earnestly opposed the
motion to strike out I the Republican party
was pledged to one single thing more than

throughout the United States I was sustained
by the best sentiment of this country Republi

Gladstone Balfourg Bill
LONDON April 24 Gladstone resumed the
debate on the land purchase bill In the com
mons this evening He was opposed to the bill
under the overwhelming conviction that it was
complicated without undertaking to solve the
difllculty He had been encouraged to hope for
a solution by Lord Salisbury declaring the
measure would not Impose a burden upon Brit
ish taxpayers He was disappointed however
when Balfour Informed the house that the
measure pledged the country to the ex
tent of 3000000 without mentioning
the possibility of further amounts being
asked Regarding Parnells plan it
was new In principle Its general purpose was
clear but he was not certain that he compre
hended the details Conservative laughter
He strongly sympathized with one object of
Parnells plan whereby landlords would not be
expatriated but would be retained I would
be a sorrowful conclusion of the life of the land
lords i when local government was established
in Ireland they did not take part in adjusting
affairs Balfours bill ought to be confined
to the landlords already in possession
I should not encourage the landlords to
become buyers of land in order to take advan
tage of the enormous bonus offered Hear
hear The provision respecting the two years
arrears also required justification which It
would be difficult find Cheers Coming to
what he called the constitutional objections ho
urged that it was obvious Ireland opposed the
measure in view of the fact that fivesixths of
its members deliberately and determinedly op
posed i Cheers As t the government was
going to make Ireland its debtor it was im
portant to consider what was the attitude of
the persons about to be subjected to the debt
State landlords implied the use of soldiers
against tenants the use of every weapon of
state to enforce unpopular law
G schsn said Gad ton sl Contention that
the tenants would be deprived of the benefits
intended for them destroyed Morleys argu
ment that the nonpurchaslng tenants would
agitate to get their rent lowered to the same I
scale us the purcuasers rents He agreed with
both Gladstone and Parnell in their desire to
retain landlords in Ireland but the bill did not
necessarily have to epropriate them
S W Russell Liberal Unionist approved the
bill on all points Dillon Nationalist said if
the contested districts were a disgrace to the
country during the past century it was a re
proach to the imperial parliament arguing that
the guarantees were illusory Ho said that
during a period famine or distress the tenants
might refuse to pay their installments and the
government would be utterly powerless to
force payment t en

What Senators and Representa
tives Say of the Bill
THY STILL WANT FREE COINAGEtio
Senator Teller Is the Most Uncompromising
His Bill Tho Democrats of Oregon
Favor Free Coinage
WASHINGTON April 21SpecI31 telegram to
THE HERALD It is expected that the silver
bill will be called up In the House next week
In general talk today with Senator and
Representatives regarding the measures agreed
upon at the House caucus last night I find tho
ioncensus of opinion on the whole very favor
able to i A few of the radical silver men like
Senator Teller of Colorado and Stewart of
Nevada are dissatisfied with what is called tho
bullion feature of the bill and will endeavor to
have it modified Senator Jones of Nevada on
the other hand and Senator Manderson of No
iraska both of whom are equally strong adher
ents ot a free coinage policy express their sat
isfaction with the bill which they regard as a
substantial victory for silver as do a number of
western Representatives with whom I talked
The New York and Now England people have
but little to say concerning the matter They
prefer to wait they tell you until their constitu
Cuts have had an opportunity to study the pro
posed plan and impress them the Republicans
ivith their views
Senator Teller of Colorado said I shallfl
oppose any measure that pays silver certill
atesfn bullion that makes possible for the
government to secure a wholesale or retail
dealer in the community I the government
buys silver it ought to put it in its vaults as a
money metal to remain there until it comes out
in the shape of coin No good reason can be
given why these certificates should be payable
in bullion and the whole scheme in my
judgment originated in New York city among
the monometallists so that they might
prevent the coinage of silver and so
ar as possible its use either directly or indirectly
rectly as a basis for the issue of paper money
The present situation is really fight between
the double and the single standard classes I
for one am ready to accept the challenge thrown
down by those gentlemen I would have
been satisfied with the Jones bill which pro
vided for whatever amount we needed for circulation
lation but which did not allow tho bullion to
get out again Now I shall be satisfied with
nothing less than free coinage and to that end
I have offered an amendment to the Jones bill
when i shall come up for consideration I we
dont get free coinage at this session we shall
try It again next year and the next and so on
until we do
Senator Jones of Nevada said The meas
ure is a compromise and the most satisfactory
settlement of the question we could have made
I will increase the value of money sufficiently
to meet the growing demand for money Free
coinage of course would suit me better but I
think that when this measure comes to be en
forced the silver men will see that its effect
will be practically all that the most radical
could ask We regard i as a most aubstantia
victory and while we have not gone at one
stride fromthe house of bondage to the prom
ised land cec the promised land m sight am d
are satisfied
Senator Manderson Nebraska said hI am
a free coinage man but I regard this measure
as a fair compromise I in the face of present
conditions the extreme silver men hold out for
free coinage it may prevent us getting any
thing
Representative Carter of Montana said I
is not such a measure as I would cave outlined
i I were untramelled but it is on the whole
very good and I am gratified that the great body
of the Republican party has seen fit to adopt
i I
Representative Bartine of Nevada said
The bill is a compromise I the Senate
stands by itthe House will if the Senate re
cedes then the House will go with them The
House in other words is not taking an inde
i dependent stand in the matter You ask if w
are satisfied That after all is a relative term
I is a step in the right direction but the silver
men never will be satisfied with anything less
than free coinage
Conger Introduces the Bill
WASHINGTON April 24Chairman Conger of
the coinage committee today introduced in the

caucus last night I was referred to the coin

A M Musser Esq SaltoLake city Utah
My DEAR MR MUSSER Your very kindly let
ter of the 14th inst reached me this morning
About my work Have something over twenty
thousand rainbow trout salmo irideus and
10000 brown trout salmo fario These are
healthy fry and will be ready some time this
fall We have in ponds carp cyfrinus carpio
channel catfish ictalurus punctatus black
bass mlcropterus dolomiei teach tinea vul
guns goldcnlde idus melanotus red eye
perch ambloplites vupcstris and some Jap
anese gold fish We hope for a crop from all
of them but who can say Maybe we will and
may be ve wont Two months from now ought
to tell the tale
I hope you will not forget the intimation that
you may come to see me this summer Very
truly yours WILLIAM F PAGE
An experienced pisciculturist in Iowa also
writes Mr Musser as follows
If you will allow mo I will make some sug
gestions in regard to your getting suitable fish
for your mountain streams
I have worked in the Colorado and Wyoming
hatcheries and from experience I believe that
the lake brook rainbow and brown trout will
do well in your territory Out of these several
kinds of the best fishes that swim the lake
trout Is the only one that may not get along
quite as well In Utah as elsewhere The spawn
of any or all Of these can be obtained in almost
any quantities from eastern dealers My Idea
would bo for you to obtain the impregnated
eggs by express and hatch them out yourselves
and when old enough plant them in the most
suitable public waters
Now Mr Musser > l may be meddling with
something that is none of my business but I am
quite enthusiastic over the artificial propaga
tion offish and as trout is the most valuable of
food fishes hence I makq the suggestions
Any information you want to know in regard
to pisciculture I will gladly give It you

to be addressed has become a serious question
with the managers of some of the emporiums
