TUCKERHAN - ’ ‘ ARK’ SENATOR CLARKE HOMEWARD BOUND. “Old Cotton Top,” as Arkansas’ iew senator, Hon. James P. Clarke is jest known in his home state, passed through Newport Wednesday morn ng on Passenger No. 11 on his return to Little Rock from the national capi tal. The train was detained here a few minutes having received orders to pass No. 2 at Newport, and during the <bort stop, Senator Clarke came out jpon the car steps. The Independent •eporter happened to be standing lear and recognized at once the dis tinguished looking Arkansan and after greetings, pressed the Senator for a statement in regard to the conflicting reports sent out from Washington, claiming on the one hand that he had refused the proffered courtesy of his aolleague to escort him to the presi dent’s chair in taking the oath of office ind on the other hand that both Berry ind Carmack had refused him this courtesy. The Senator begged to be excused from an expression on this point and laughingly remarked that he had to some home to learn the news of the national capital. Anything from him mii/ht tend to make more acute the long strained relations between him self and Senator Berry. Unless the latter felt constrained to answer the newspaper reports, he had nothing to say, intimating that should Senator Berry reply, he too might later be heard from. The departure of No. 11 cut short the interview at this hardly satisfac tory stage. RIVER’S RISE CONTINUES. The guage on White river at New port Wednesday morning, registered 28.1 feet and showed a slow rise dur ing the day. The rise at Mt. Olive for Tuesday night was 6 inches, while Batesville reported the river on a stand. A further rise however is ex pected from the upper river and its tributaries. Black river, flowing through the lowlands with slower current, con tinues to rise, but the general reports would indicate that the danger of an overflow has been exaggerated. Tim local guage without further rains will not probably pass 30 feet, which it four feet over the danger line. Robt. Anderson telephones from Jacbsonport that the water is coming into the town and another foot will give them a genuine overflow. Water is said to be seeping througli the Choctaw dump and filling the ditches and lower ground in the eastern part of town. WATCH REPAIRING AND CLEANING.
