WASHINGTON. D. C. April X-8pa-ctal
Telegram.) A dramatic ending to
the efforts of Senator Gamble and Con
gressman Burke, ot South Dakota, to
secure a emergency appropriation
to he used In breaking an Ice gorge
formed on the Missouri river between
Vermilion snd Tankton. which threat
ened the destruction Tf hundreds of
thousands of dollars' worth of property
through the accumulation of back water
dammed by the gorge came st snout
t o'clock today, when s telegram waa
received that the gorge waa broken snd
the danger waa past.
President Antra
At the moment the message was re
ceived that the Ice had given way. Sen
ator Gamble waa on hta feet on the
floor of the senate to present a Joint
resolution calling for the appropriation
snd Congressman Burke had Just stsrted
for the house chamber with a similar
resolution, both having paved the way
tor its immediate passage in both
branches by conference with the chair
men of the appropriation committees.
Furthermore, earlier In the day. when
the news was received here of the
possible damage that would be caused
by the gorge. Senator Gamble had gone
to the president with a statement of
the situation and had secured his sgree
ment for a special messsge to congress
on the matter and for his signature
to the legislation as soon ss It had
paaaed. Instructions had also been
given to the War department to pro-
pare Its machinery for immediate opera
tion so that within a few hours they
would have been en the scene to destroy
the gorge and avert the destruction.
Naturally the South Dakota senator
and congressman were much relieved,
though they expressed satisfaction over
demonstrating how quickly they had been
able to meet the situation.
Katie ManaVll Released.
An order wss Issued todsy by the
bureau of Immigration to release from
detention' at Ellis Island Katie Man
dell, the dsughter of Mr. Msndell of
Omaha, national director of the Hebrew
Immigration and Sheltering society. Miss
Msndell hsd come from Russia with
her mother and sister Intending to gn
to Omaha. She waa not In good health,
however, snd the authorities would not
allow the party to go on. The matter
came before the Immigration bureau
here and letters were received from
Omaha by Senator Brown. Senator
Hitchcock and Congressman Lobeck
asking them to take the matter up and
secure Miss Mandeil's release. Through
action on the part ot the delegation
the authorities were convinced that it
would be proper for the party to go
west and an order was issued to that
effect, the required bond in such cases
being furnished.
The Omaha Commercial club, through
Commissioner Guild, has gons oa record
aa. favoring the Levar Mil providing for
agricultural extension. ; A lettaf to that
effect was received by Senator Hitchcock
A 'telegram received from Des Moines
today reads: "As to the Iowa situation.
It Is as follows: Tart needs only slxty-
rive delegates to cinch the state conven
tion. The president has fit delegates In
structed or pledged at this time. He Is
absolutely certain of six of the eleven
congressional districts. Three hundred
and .forty-three-delegates are yet to be
chosen, thirty-one counties yet to hold
conventions, eight ot which hsve held
caucuses. There Is not the slightest
doubt of Tsft controlling the stats con
vention and securing the four delegates-
at-large. Ida county has gons for Taft,
which Is a distinct gain. This makes It
certain that Taft will have sixteen of the
twenty-six delegates from Iowa."
The bill authorising the sale ot the un
allotted lands ot the Omaha Indians,
now before the house committee and
which recently passed the senate, where
It was introduced by Senstor Brown,
will be reported next Friday according
to a member of the committee. It waa
found necessary to make some further
allotments to members of the tribe who
had not received their share and this
matter must be attended to before the
bill can be reported.

' TAJCKTON, S. D., April t-8pectal.
The great Ice gorge which broke today
threatened to flood the James river valley
by aa overflow from the Missouri. An
Immense gorge, forty feet high and sev
eral miles long, formed st the mouth of
the James river snd s large amount of
the flooded Missouri was turned aside
and poured en the low lands of the James
valley. Around Fullervllle It was so
flooded thst the Milwaukee track was
submerged and traffic lias ceased. The
lowest county bridge on the Jaraee was
forced up stream for half a mile by the
Ice which packed the lower end of the
James river. The situation wss a new
and novel one and was caused by the
Missouri cutting oft five miles of the
smaller river, bringing the mouth to a
point where It faces up the stream ot
the Missouri snd where the full force of
the current wss felt.

get together on seven men, some ot
whom are Included la the Cltlsens union
list, name the two or three we favor te
take the place of those on the Cltlsens'
