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.
