GOULD ADVOCATES
CONNECTING LINK.
The directors of the Iron Mountain
system met in St. Louis Tuesday and
elected a new member, Louis Fitzger
ald, who succeeds James DeWolf Cut
ting. President Gould advocated a
first and only lien upon a diagonal
line from the valley line near West
Memphis, via the White River Val
ley, to a connection with the Missouri
Pacific system at Carthage, Mo., and
by this connection completing a low
grade-line from Kansas City to Mem
phis of about 480 miles, which is
shorter than any existing line between
the same points and which will have a
maximum operating grade of .6 per
cent, as against grades of 2 per cent
by any other existing line. By build
ing this 254 miles a new main line of
dense traffic is created between Kan
sas City and Memphis.

OVERFLOWS JACKSONPORT.
Jacksonport on Thursday morning
telephoned this city, that the town
was nearly entirely under water, ex
cept a small portion ot the main
street, the guage registering 30.2 feet,
while at Newport the highest water
recorded for this rise was Thursday
morning, when the river was on a
stand at 28.7 feet. Newport is nearly
a foot and a half lower than Jackson
port and the advantage of levee
protection can now be fully appreci
ated. The Lake can now be seen by a
person standing on Front Street, but
the water is four feet at least from the
top of the dump. No danger of an
overflow is now feared as the levee
and railroad dumps appear to be hold
ing out all right and the river has
reached a stand.
Mount Olive reports a fall of five
feet for Wednesday night and at
Batesville, White is on a stand.
Black River too seems to have done
its worst and at Black Rock Thursday
morning had fallen one inch, though
the rise still continues nearer its
mouth, at Elgin.
