The Har was to form a drainage r“" ’V that the creek might be Id and give banks so that II not overflow into the ' nding country. Its length /son county is thirty miles. A bill provided that the dis A should consist of all lands l ttWree’ miles on either side of L^.fcreek, giving a district six H^miles wide and thirty miles long, f» containing 180 square miles. It in m eludes the entire city oi-Newport ¥ and many valuable farms, which f it is said are at no time subject ^ to overflow. The gentlemen who appeared I before the committee Wednes ^ day night contended that it was property own i ' e&’of the city of Newport and ' "the owners of farms not in the territory actually affected should be taxed for the benefit of some one else, especially as they had in the recent past formed a dis trict and built a levee to protect the city from the overflow of the creek through back water from White river, as happened three years ago. They argued that under the present law those af fected could apply to the county judge for the formation of a drainage district, the expense of which would be defrayed by those actually in the creek terri tory. ___ POCAHONTAS NEWS.

SAME OLD SORE IS NOT HEALED. Penitentiary Squabble Will Not Down—Governor Wants to Be Relieved From Duties On Board. Little Rock, April 6.—An old rupture between Gov. Davis and the other members of the state penitentiary board, which, as a matter of fact, was never healed has broken out afresh. It cul minated in the special message from the governor yesterday to both houses, asking that he be relieved of further service on the board, and condemning in un measured terms the members of the board and the management of the institution. This was the upshot of the meeting Held by the board Tuesday evening, when Gov. Davis threw down the gauntlet and charged that the secretary of state, attorney gen eral and agricultural commission er are in a combination against him. Gen. Rogers called upon him for suggestions as to the proposed appropriation for the mainten ance of the institution under the Black bill. He said he had no suggestions to make; that the board never consulted him about nnvtVnncr and that he washed his hands of the whole business, and would have nothing more to do with the management. Fur ther, he said that he would veto any bill for the appropriation of money beyond that earned by the convicts, for their mainten ance. This presents difficulties, since, under the new law, all funds derived from this source must be turned into the state treasury, and can be withdrawn only by warrant upon appropria tions made for that express pur pose.
