THE MIGHTY STREAM.
The Terriblo Work of the Missis
The i.eyees Protecting the Bottom
Lands Ciye Way.
Ht. Loris. r;iy 1H. Advice from
Afiusisbiptii rivr towns aliovc here say
that nt 4:15 o'clock this morning a break
occurred in the Sny levee at a point
nliout two miles below the Hannibal
lridj?, and tliis wiis followtd at G:i5
o'clock by 11 lurg-r and mora serious one
above the bridge. Tlio wildest excito-
ment prevailed in Il innibal, and ainonj
the few fannrH wlio stubbornly rt fused
to leave the bottoms. Two hundred men
who Lad been engaged all night m plac
ing bags of band on the top of the beves
to keen the river back, au attempt wu
nii'de to close the breaks, but without
Biicces.-?. The sensible farmers had re
moved all their stock to the bluffd, six
miles distant, but some remained until
the iiiuiuent of the calamity, consequent
ly thoy sus-tained severe losses. Hogs,
cows and horses could be seen swimming
on the flood until they came iu contact
with some obstacle, upon which their
bodies would be mangled. The smaller
houses in the bettoui were wrecked. No
Ioj-.s of life is reported yet. The territory
now covered with water is forty-fiye
miles long and six miles wide, with 50,
000 acres under cultivation. The depth
of water is from one to twenty feet.
Consequent upon the breaking of the
k-vee. the river is receding rapidly.
Tenants state that if the ground gets in
favorable condition by the middle of
Juno they can rais late corn. Their loss
The damage to railroad property will
be great. From Keokuk word comes
that it was thought the worst was over,
but very heavy rains iat in there this
morning, and, as the Des Moins river is
rising rapidly, there is no telling what the
result will be. The overflow is constantly
increasing, covering more land every dsy
and the water is getting deeper. Vast
quantities of water are creeping over the
levees a mile north of Alexandria, which
forms a swift current that sweeps through
the town and threaten to earry awoy a
number of houses whose foundations
have been weakened. Many families
have abandoned their homes.
TUULUI.E AT Ql'IXCY.
Qlixcy, 111., May 17. The upper Sny
levee gave way near East Hannibal this
morningf and the destruction ot the lewe
district in this section at the Mississippi
valley is now complete. Many thousand
acres of the most productive farming
land aie covered by from six to fifteen
feet of water and the los3 from the grat
fl.Kid in this vicinity cannot bo estimated.
The river has risen six inches since morn
in an I reports from above, state that
the water is still rising. Tonight a
largely attended meeting was held in this
city to devise means for the relief of des
titute families along the lowlands.
For the past two or three daya helpless
people hare been coming to the city in
boats, the single row boats often contain
ing an entire family, with such household
effects as could be quickly gathered to
gether. For ten days it has rained steadi
ly, to add to the suffering from the flood.
At the meeting tonight money was
freely subscribed to provide provisions
and clothing to be delivered in the morn
ing, north and south of Qnincy in
charge of the citizens relief con;nijttee.
These committees will make a careful in
vestigation throughout the flooded dis
trict and relieve M12 immediate wants of
the people. Cuinmittcea were also ap
pointed to solicit aid from the citizens
generally, and boats will ba loaded to be
sent to the flooded country. The water
ii still steadily rising tonight, and the
worst s tlio flood has not yet been
AT CI KMSCTOS.
l;cr:i.:x!T:;, Iu., May 17.--The river j
thli eveiihig is at a standstill. The rise
iu the i -.! lycnty-four hours is one and
one sevi' ntei Lth ii.I;es, and it is nov
seventeen feet six and one-fouitu ie.ches
above low water mark and higher than
it has bofii for thirty-seven years. The
I'ood causes some inconvenience and in
terruption of business in a few instances,
but no sjrions loss at Uurlington.
Arthur at the Helm Again.
CiTif.i, May 18. Chief Arthur, of
the Brotherhood of Lt.0i.m2ji ye Engin
eers, resumed yesterday his old place at
the headquarters of the IJurlington strik
ers. All the brotherhood officials are now
;;;;ti:ix:i in Chicago, and will within a
few davs detcrihine what is necessary to
mft the exigencies of eiiatjnn. A
circular to the public has leeu dlstrik
;jfed during the past three days, which
declares that the strike is not oil".
INGALLS AND VOORHEES.
Receptions Tendered the Two Sen
ators by Their Admirers.
ATashinqtox, May 18. Just after the
Ingalls-Voorhees episode in the senate
the friends and admirers of both senators
tendered each a reception, and selected
last night for the occasion. The recep
tion to Senator Ingalls brought a large
crowd to the club house of the republi
can ler.guc, whera speeches were made
by Senator Ingalls and Sherman, Repre
sentatives Perkins, of Kansas, Johnston,
Indiana, and Judge Shellabarger. Sen
ator Ingalls in hi speech critizised the
nomination of Fuller to be chief justice
of the United States. The reception to
Senator Voorhees was held nt Willard's
hall, which wss elaborately decorated
and filled to overflowing. The speakers
were Senators Voorhees, Representative
Outhwaite, of Ohio, Caruth, of Kentucky
and Compton, of Maryland, ex-Oorernor
Curtiu, and Commissioners Rlack, Stock
slager and Hall, of the pension, land and
patent ollices, respectively.
The Sonora Train Robbers.
No(sai.es, Ariz., May 17. Wcrd was
received here late this afternoon that
Manue Ortiz, the Mexican who was with
Train Robber Roling just before the lat
ter was captured, had also been captured
between Fort Huachuca and Tombstone.
Ortiz is the Mexican who stated that he
had a hand in the robbery. The oflicers
learned last night that another Mexican
who had a hand in the robbery is in Bear
Valley, about three miles west of here,
and men have been sent out to arrest him.
The officials have hud several talks with
Roling and Taylor today, and it is pretty
certain that the latter made a confession.
The ollicials admit that they know a good
deal more than they will tell, and some
of them go so far as to say that the pris
oner will be turned over to the Mexican
authorities. There is one thing curtain
enough is known to warrant the predic
tion that these men will bs killed cither
by the citizens or by the Mexican authori
He Knew What Whisky Was.
Fkemoxt, Neb., May 18. The town of
North Bend, this county, which adopted
prohibition, is in the throes of the agony
incident to the enforcement of the law.
On Tuesday two f the old saloon keep
ers, Anton Soukup and Thomas Ilruza,
were arrested for selling without a li
cense, soukup plead guilty ana was
tined $100 for violating the law. Ilruza
denied the impeachment and was given
bonds for his appearance at the next
term of the district court when his case
will be tried. The evidence against
them was secured by an Omaha detec tive
who secured some of their vilo stuff and
who is considered an expert in determin
ing what whisky is.
A Sad Accident.
Fkemoxt, Neb., May 18. Mrs. James
Larson, of this city, died this evening
from the effects of a terrible accident.
At. noon today she attempted to start a
fire in her cook stove by pouring In koro
sene from a can. The oil ignited sud
denly, causing au explosion which in-
veloped the woman in flames. She ran
injo the yard screaming, and with her
clothing ablaze, when neighbors ran to
her assistance and smothered the flames
by throwing n quilt around her, but this
was too late to save her life. She was
horribly burned, and suffered intensely
until death. Besides her husband, Mrs.
Larson leaves a daughter 13 years of age
and three younger children, aged 2, 5
and 7 years.
Des Moixes, la., May 18. The jury
in tb.9 case of the state against O. W.
Potts was out seven minutes today, dur
ing which time they agreed upon a ver
dict of guilty. Potts is one ot the three
notorious constables who are under in
dictment fer receiving bribes from the
liqor dealers to secure the dismissal of
cases pendin. and o grant immunity to
violators of the liquor law. Tljs trial
lasted over a week, and th-3 defendant's
three attorneys made a stubborn fight to
penr their client on a technicality.
Potts' conyjefion indicates that justice
will be meted out to the entire gijr.g. and
that their reinoval from c-iiicc will rid
the commonwealth of their presence.
