Park Commissioners Arrange for a Much
Needed Improvement.
Ronilnnr TlirotiRti Property Orriicrt l

from the South.
The Park commissioners have accomplished
an object that haa long been drslrablo and
for which they have been working for several
years. They have st-cured nn entrance In
Falrmount park from the south through
property owned by Leonard nverctt. This
Is the only natural entrance- the park that
reaches tbe basin and the motor car station
without ascending any considerable grade.
For many years this roadway was open
and was used by the public , but since prop
erty became more valuable In the vicinity ot
the touth side of the park Mr. Everett could
not be expected to permit the public to use
without compcnstlon an extensive and valu
able tract ot land. Adjoining property waa
sold and Improved nnd In course of time It
became necessary to close the entrance. Mr.
Everett has since made a number of proposi
tions to the commissioners to give the right
of way through his property , but they were
not accepted. For n month or more new
propositions have been considered by the
commissioners and yesterday negotiations
wcro terminated by an agreement between
Mr. Everett and the commissioners by which
he gives to the city the free use of the
right of way for n period of twenty years
upon the condition that the city does a cer
tain amount of work on the roadway. This
work Includes the laying of a brick sidewalk
on ono sldo of the street from Its juncture
with Graham avenue to the park entrance.
Another condition Is that the city agrees
not to order the right ot way paved or Im
proved unless at public expense or with the
consent of all of the property owners for a
period of twenty years. When these condi
tions are complied with the contract be
tween Mr. Everett and the park commission
ers becomes a deed from Everett to the city
for the- whole extension of the right of way ,
and the property becomes one of the city's
streets , subject to the laws governing the
The park commissioners nre highly elated
over the outcome of the long pending nego
tiations , and feel that the proposition of Mr.
Everett Is a remarkably liberal one. The
cost of laying the sidewalk will bo Ices than
$300. The present land-value of the property Is
at leas-t $1,500. The opening of this road
gives a natural and easy access to the park
from Graham avenue on so low a grade that
bicyclists will have no difficulty In riding
Into the park. It Is an avenue lined with
magnificent elm , oak and other forest trees.
The opening of this new avenue will also
be of great benefit to the people who live In
the vicinity. It will give them a now street
with a new sidewalk on permanent grade
without coat.
The contract will have to be approved by
the city council before It become legal , but
there Is no doubt that this will bo done at
the next meeting , which will be on the evenIng -
Ing of April 19 unless a special meeting Is
railed sooner. Tbe road will then , be Im
mediately thrown open to the public.

SullerH to .In 11.
The March term of the federal court
closed yesterday afternoon. The Jury In the
case of John T. Robinson , charged with
stealing Grecnstreet's grips , brought In a
verdict of guilty , after a consultation of
several hours. The' only other case tried
was that of George B. Martin , a gray-haired
bootlegger , the sole one of several dozen
who refused to plead guilty. He went Into
the fight to show his Innocence In a very
cheerful manner , but the facts were too
strong for him , nnd ho was convicted.
While the Jury In the Robinson case was
deliberating Judge Woolson called up all
of the prisoners who had been convicted
but not sentenced , and pronounced their
doom. The Appanooso county counter
feiters were the first sentenced. James

mesa penitentiary and ordered to pay a fine
of $700 ; Ed Scearcy was given llvo years In
Fort Madison and fined $750 ; William "Biff"
Betson was given three years In Anamosa
nnd $400 fine ; Sam Steele was sent to Ana-
m/osa / for eighteen months nnd assessed n
fine ot $250.
The unpunished bootleggers were next ar
raigned. John Slsson was given a sentence
of $200 flno und 100 days In Jail , but It was
suspended pending good behavior.
John Bordman , the crippled old soldier
from Atlantic , who has become a chronic
offender , was sentenced to spend eighteen
months In Fort Madison and to pay a fine
of $750.
Mrs. Adallna Sawyer , n female violator of
the liquor laws from Shenandoab , was sen
tenced to 130 days In jail and to pay a fine
of $200.
Gcorgo H. Martin was given ten months
In the Avoca Jail , but tbe mittimus was
ordered not to bo Issued until the old man
had been given a chance to settle up his
worldly affairs.
Robinson , the grip thief , was given a se
vere sentence. Us waa ordered to pay a
flno of $750 and to bo Imprisoned In Fort
Madison for thirty months.

W. S. WrlKht r.rimteil n Divorce.
Judge Smith In the district court ycstcr-

State Superintendent ot Instruction Sabln
has lamed a pamphlet to school teachers
concerning the observation of Arbor day ,
April 23. In It he eaye :
The enre nnd ornamentation of the school
grounds demands more attention than It
nt present receives. There Is no necessity
for the desolate appearance of the school
yard , In a state possessing the fertile soil
of Iowa. A little pains taken by the
teacher , n little Interest nnd labor on the
part of the people of the district , would
change the entire aspect nnd make the
schoolhoUne grounds attractive nnd beauti
ful. Children should be tniit'ht to care for
trees and shrubs , ns n necessary port of
their education , lletwecn the eftlhctlc nnd
the ethical side Of the child's nature there
Is n close union. To love trees and flowers ,
to care for them nnd tn delight In their
Krowth , opens In the child's mind the door
to right thinking- and right doing.

CHAMBERLAIN , S. D. , April 7. ( Spe
cial. ) Preliminary steps have been taken to
Institute a contest In tbe local United States
land office on unusually sensational grounds.
The land Involved Is In Gregory county and
the contestant Is Miss Ida E. Oliver , a
young woman who has entire confidence In
her ability to make a success of farming ,
notwithstanding the attendant disadvan
tages because of her sex. In her affidavit ,
which will be ( lied In a few days having
already been drawn by her attorney , W. J.
Farmer , and ecnt > to licr for acknowledge
ment she alleges that she established ac
tual residence on the tract In dispute and
built a house and made other Improvements.
Three weeks after she established her rcs-
Idcnco a party of men , numbering seven or
eight , went tp her dwelling and ordered her
to vacate. Upon her refusal they removed
her by force , tore down her house , destroyed
every article of furniture and warned her
that death would ) be her portion should , she
ever return to the land. The withdrawal
of this threat and her right to remain In
possession of the tract was then mado. con
ditional upon her paying them 'tho ' sum of
$25 , which E'.IO also refused or was unable
to do. In fear of her llfo ebo found her
way to the nearest town , and since then ,
being dependent upon her own exertions for
a livelihood , has worked diligently to save
the money necessary to Invoke the law In
her behalf. About a month after tbo party
of vigilantes evicted her a man named
Meyers , It Is alleged , Bottled upon the tract ,
but subsequently sold It to a woman , wheat
at present occuplcs.lt. The tract In con
troversy embraces excellent farming land
and Is quite valuable. The legal struggle
for Us possession promises ito become decid
edly animated , as Miss Oliver haa enlisted
the support ot friends who cannot be Intim
idated by threats ot violence , and If neces
sary the case will bo carried to the secretary
of the Interior.

WASHINGTON , April 7. The president today -
day sent the following message to the senate
and house ot representatives :
Information which has recently come to
me from the governors of Arkansas , Mis
sissippi nnd Louisiana , nnd from prominent
citizens of these states nnd Tennessee , vmr-
runts the conclusion thnt widespread dis
tress , Involving the destruction of n large
amount of property nnd the los of human
lives , hns resulted from the floods which
have been submerging thnt section of the
country. These nre stated on reliable au
thority to be the most destructive floods
thnt have ever dcvnstnted the Mississippi
valley , the water being much higher tluin
the highest stnge reached before. From
Marlon , Ark. , north of Memphis , to Green
ville , Miss , , n distance of more than 2SC
miles by river. It Is reported there nre now
nt lenst fifty towns nnd villages under
water , nnd n territory extending from 100
inllon north of Memphis to 20) miles south
nnd from five to forty miles wide , Is sub
merged. Hundreds of thousands of ncrcs
of cultivated soil , with growing crops , nre
Included In the submerged territory. In
this section nlone there nre from 50,000 to
00,000 people whose property 1ms been de
stroyed , nnd whose buslnc.ss has been sus
pended. Growing crops hnve been ruined ,
thousnnds of cattle hnvc been drowned nnd
the tnhnbltnnts of ccrtnln nrena threatened
with starvation. As n isront majority of
the sufferers nre small fnrmcrs , they hnve
thus been left entirely dlstltute nnd will be
unprepared for work even nfter the floods
hnve subsided.
The entire Mlsslnslopl vnlley In Arknnsns
Is flooded nnd communication with ninny
liolntB cut off. In Mississippi n like con
dition exists. The levees In Loulslnnn , with
n slnclo exception , hnve held , but the wntcr
Is rising and the situation there la reported
ns being extremely critical.
Under such circumstances the citizens of
bhese stntcs look for the co-operation nnd
Hupport of the national government In reliev
ing the proHSlni ? cnsea of destitution for
food , clolhlni ? nnd shelter which nre beyond
the reach of local efforts. The authorities
who hnve cotnmunlca'ted with the executive
recopnlzcd thnt their first nnd most ener
getic duty Is to provide as fnr ns possible
the means of caring for their own citizens ,
but ncnrly nil of them ngreo In the opinion
thnt after their resources have been ex
hausted , n sum nKRregnUnp nt least $150-
000 , nnd possibly J200.COO , will bo required
for Immediate use.
Precedents nro not wnntlng thnt In such
emergencies ns this congress has taken
prompt , generous nnd intelligent nation , In
volving the expenditure of considerable
of money with Bntlsfnctory results.
In 1874 $590,000 was appropriated , nnd In 18S2
$330,000 was nlso nproprlated for relief In
the same direction , besides Inrge sums In
other years. The Citizens' Relief commis
sion of Memphis , which hns tnken prompt
netlon , hns already cared for from 0,000 to
7,000 refugees from the floodru districts , nnd
they nrq still nrrlvlnp Inl that. city In large
numbers dally. Supplies nnll provision ! '
hnvo been sent to the various points In
Arkansas nnd Mississippi by 'this commit
tee , but the most thnt can be done by these
efforts Is to pnrtly relieve th'e most acute
cases of suffering. No rtetlon has yet been
taken for the great niaiorlty'of the Inhab
itants living In the Interior , whose condition
has already been described. '
Under these conditions inil having exerted
themselves to the fullest extent , the local
authorities have reluctantly confessed their
Inability to further coporwlthfthls distressIng -
Ing situation unaided by relief from the
government. J '
It hns therefore seemed to me that the
representatives of the people should be
promptly Informed of the nature nnd extent
of the suffering nnd needs of these strlrkeu
people , nnd I have communicated these facts
m the hope and belief thnt the legislative
branch of the government iwlll promptly
reinforce the work of the local authorities
In the states named.

WASHINGTON , April" 7. Senator Jones
of ArKansas has offered to. Joint resolution
appropriating. $150,000 for , supplies to the
Mississippi river sufferer ? and it has been
taken up by the senate. Mr. Catchlngs of
Mississippi offered a resolution in the house
appropriating J200.000 for tbe relief of the
Mississippi flood sufferers. The senate passed
the Jones resolution and the house the Catch-
Ings resolution. This would have left an
awkward situation , but the senate yielded
precedence to the house and recalled the
resolution and then promptly parsed the bouse
resolution , which now gora to the president.
It appropriates $200,000.
The resolution Includes the Red river of

KANSAS CITY , AprlT 7. The Missouri
river at this point today had risen to within
sixteen Inches of the 'danger mark , the
gauga reading 19,8 , and the first damage lias
been recorded. Half a mile up the river
thirty acres of ground have been submerged
and considerable fencing liau been carried
away. In the bottoms this morning nine
families were compelled to move to higher
ground , and across tlie river In Harlem the
people are moving their cattle to places of
safety. The current Is swift and should the
rise continue It Is believed tliat eertous damage -
ago to property will result.
At & o'clock tonight the river had reached
a stage of 20,1 , or within three-tenths ot
the danger lino. The flood Is coming on
and serious damage IB predicted to property
along tbo flats before Friday noon.

MEMPHIS , Tcnn. , April 7. The supreme
test of the levees eoulh of Vlcksburg and
Arkansas City Is fast approaching. The
river at Vlcksburg 'has been falling for some
days on account ot the rush of waters from
the main channel through the crevasse nbovo
Into the delta. This water Is again returning
to the channcd through the mouth of the
Yazoo river , and Hn Influence Is being felt
ot Vlcksburg where the gauge Is now markIng -
Ing higher figures. Within a few days the
crest of the rise will bo opposite Vlcksburg ,
and the channel will continue to deepen un
less the levees break.
The Louisiana people realize the gravity
of the situation. The destruction wrought
by the water In the St. Francis basin and the
Yazoo delta may bo repeated In the Texas
basin , which begins In southeastern Arkan
sas and extends through the northeastern
counties ot Louisiana. Material and men arc
being hurried forward , and the effort Uiat
had marked the work of those In charge of
the lower levees has Ixcn doubled ,
The newa of the action of the national con
gress In appropriating a big sum for the re
lief of the sufferers wao gratefully received
hero and throughout the overflowed district.
The prompt action of the president and the
secretary of war Is especially commended.
The tax on the energies ot the people of
Memphis bos been great , previous demands
having been fully met ,
The river at iMcmphls Is plowly falling , and
the gauge at Cairo show.i a gratifying decline.

ST. PAUL , April 7. A Grand Forks , N.
D. , special to the Dispatch says : The
flood Is rapidly making Its presence mani
fest In this city as a record breaker. The
Red rose 2.32 feet , making thirty-nine feet
above low water mark at G o'clock this
morning , which Indicates that there will be
serious disaster to this city. At noon the
river was within 2.11 feet of the highest
point reached In 1893 and 4.35 feet of the
highest point reached In 1882. Within the
next twenty-four hours the flood will ba\e
passed the 1882 mark and will be submerg
ing everything. Great anxiety Is being
felt regarding the Third street paving. The
north end of the south pier of the Northern
Pacific bridge -wos struck by heavy Ice , doing
pome Injury to the bridge. Another piece
of floating Ice struck the west end ot the pier
of tlio Dcmars avenue bridge and gave
It n terrible shaking. A vast volume of
water is making Its way from Fargo ta
Grand Forks from both sides of tbe Red
river , helping to augment the Immense flood ,
which has been doing so much damage up
the river. Red lake , Goose , Wild Rice ,
Choycnno and numerous smaller streams are
contributing n torrent ot water , which Is
now rushing Into the greatly swollen Red
river. The Immense gorge formed at the
bend north of the city has been broken.
The fires In all the largo blocks have been
put out. Elevators have been stopped.
Stoves and furnaces are being erected on
the ground floors.

VERMILLION , S. D. , April 7. ( Special
Telegram. ) Great destruction Is being done
to the Milwaukee railway between this city
and the' James river. Before morning It Is
thought the entire railroad will bo washed
out twenty miles In extent. The water has
covered tbo bottom land from bluff to bluff
west of the city from the James river. All
communication with Meckllng and GayvlIIe
Is cut off. Both towns are under water. The
worst Is expected tomorrow.
YANKTON , S. D. , April 7. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Moro reports reach here tonight
telling of Immense water yet to come iwn
James river valley. The river here still re
mains high. Railroads entering this city
from the east will not bo able to repair tbe
tracks for come time to come.
PIERRE , S. D. . April 7. ( Special Tele
gram. ) William Benolst came In this morn
ing from the Morcau river country and esti
mates the loss of cattle In that section be
tween 40 and 50 per cent. The storm of
last Tuesday was very severe on the stock
and added largely to the winter loss. He
reports the river clear of Ice from the
mouth of the Morcau down.

NEW ORLEANS , April 7. Last night for
nearly an hour ) a rain storm raged on the
lower Mlsalsslppl and people feared for the
IOVCCH. The New Orleans Levee board sent
out special men to study the effects and
found that not a bit ot damage had been
done. Below Baton Rouge and all the way
to New Orleans not only bos a great deal of
work been done , but the patrol system Is
ample and thoroughly organized. Crcvassce ,
unllko lightning , not only strike tuico In
the same place , but where a weak spot has
once developed It Is considered an Important
point to hold. For { hat reason Benne ]
Carre , Bonlta and other stricken points In
the levee are higher and broader than almost
any In the state , standing four feet or a lit
tle Ices above the water levees. These are
alro guarded with greatest care. Not one of
thrso banks has developed a weak spot thus
far. It Is simply a question of strength to
resist the prctsuro and to keep the rising
river from pouring over the tops nnd weak
ening the bases of the bulwarks by flooding
the roads In the rear. If all the levees bold
N'ew Orleans will have a crisis to face , for
Instead of the 18.6 mark predicted the water
may be nearer the twenty-foot stage.

DES MOINES , April 7. ( Special Tele
gram. ) The house today pasted the revenue
bill by a vote of 73 to 10. The meaituro us
It ROCS backto , the senate Is practically a
new measure' , differing In wording and In
provisions from the bill which passed the
senate. Tbo most Important changes made
before today were the reduction of the basis
of nuRcsemcnt from 33Vi per cent to 25 per
cent , and the Incorporation of the Indiana
law tot taxing telephone , tclfgrapli , sleeping
car and express companies. The Important
clunges made In the bill today Include anew
now provision for taxing Insurance compan
ies , heavier licenses for fwddlcrs outside ot
cities and towns , a provision that agents
and commission men acting for nonresident
owners of real estate shall bb deemed owners
for the purpose of taxation ; providing for the
collection of back tuxes on estates In the
hands of administrators when any taxes have
been escaped by tno property within five
jeara part.
The Insurance section provides that Iowa
fire companies shall pay 2 > 4 per cent on
their gross receipts from Iowa business tc
the etato treasurer , companies In the
United Stoles outside ot Iowa shall pay ( i
per cent , and foreign companies 2 > A per cent ,
Iowa companies not having a capital stocli
except county nuitimla and purely fraternal
societies shall pay Hi per cent
An attempt by Weaver to have state and
savings banks taxed the same as national
banks on Individual stockholders at the
place where the bank la located , failed.
In the Bcnato thu Temple amendment came
up nnd occupied most of the day. No vote
was reached till near G o'clock. The con
test was on the substitution of the minority
for the majority report ot the railroad com-
mlttco. The majority reported nn amend
ment which had no virility , and -the minority
recommended the original amandmcnt , pro
viding that no contract of Insurance given
by a railroad relief association e'.ionlil con
stitute a waiver of the right to sue , and the
acceptance of benefits from .such association
should not bar this right ; and no provision
In the contract of Insurance could waive the
right. The motion to substitute was debated
all day.
Hobart , Cheshire , Ellison Garst , Healy and
Ilowen spoke for the amendment ; Herry ,
Blanchard , Harchor , Carpenter , Kllburn ,
Lothrop , I'usey and Waterman against It.
The speakers in favor of the amendment
made Impassioned addresses , appealing to
members > to consider the great principle In
volved , and vote for lights for the worKlng-
inan as against the employing corporation.
The opposition simply Insisted that there
was no argument In favor of the amend
ment ; that the Durllngton relief department
should not bo Intcrfcrrod with ; that the ,
charge of coercion had not been sustained ,
and ) that It was really only a fight between
'tho scabs on the Burlington and the regular
union men on other roads , -with which the
legislature had no concern. The roll call
resulted In the defeat of thA motion to sub
stitute by a vote of 19 to 28.
Tomorrow the fight on the majority report
will como up , and It may bo defeated and the
law left without any change. The house ,
however , will Insist on Its amendment ns
first adopted.
