Memphis, April 5. Another break In the
Mississippi levee occured yesterday
morning at S o'clock at Flower lake, six
miles below Tunica, Miss., and the water
is pouring through the ODeninir with

Fortunately no loss of life is reported,
the Inhabitants of this stricken section
having made preparations for Just such
a catastrophe as exists. The condition
of the poorer classes throughout the
flooded area is indeed critical. Thnn

Floods Increasing in South Dakota.
Aberdeen. S. D., April 5. Heavy rain
fell all Saturday in this section, and
the flood situation is therefore more
serious than ever before. Nearly the
entire west and south parts of the city
are underwater. Main street in the bus
iness section is alone clear of present
limits of the flood. The rears of stores
on the west side are, however. In great
danger. All livery barns, blacksmith
shops, machinery depots and ware
houses on the west side are flooded.
The Wisconsin House Is entirely sur
rounded by water, and occupants of
the Becker House have been driven to
its upper stories, A hundred house
holders have either been driven out or
are living In their upper rooms.
Reports from the country districts
are alarming. Hundreds of farm build

hay and feed exposed to the flood. Be

Topeka, Kan.. April 5. Ex-Lieutenant
Governor Percy Daniels has suc
ceeded In interesting most of the lead
ing Dem-Populist statesmen of Kansas
in an organisation the object of which is
to operate a bureau of information con
cerning his scheme to tax inordinate
wealth and ultimately to secure an
amendment to the federal constitution
giving congress the power to levy such
a tax. The organization is working oa
a plan te arouse public Interest all over
the country on this subject, '
The Kansas legislature took np the
question at Its recent session, and
adopted a resolution asking congress to
submit a proposition to amend the fed
eral constitution providing for a tax on
inordinate wealth to a vote of the peo
ple. The legislatures of all other states
will be asked to adopt similar resolu
tions. The promoters of the idea do not
expect to accomplish the object sought
immediately, but believe that by -proper
management the people might get a
chance at such a proposition in 1900.
