Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - March 15, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 15, 1890 [Puck: 15 Cents pas Wine. VATERS STILL RISING. THE ARKANSAS FLOOD VILL FBOBABLT BE THE 8BEATEBT OX BECKED. Signal Service Report from Washing-ton—A Warning Extended to Residents of the Flooded R^yioni to Prepare for the Worst. Washington, March 14—The rain storm of the past four days in the lower Mississippi valley has practically ended, but there are no encouraging prospects for any portion of that region. The river has fallen slightly at Cairo but sharp rises at St Louis and particularly at Cincinnati, Louisville and Nashville make it evident that the recession at Cairo is only temporary and that thence southward the river must continue at its present stage for at least a week. Although the stage of water at Cairo and Helena are about four feet below the extreme floods in the past yet the prospects are very decided at even these places that the greatest flood ever known will obtain during the next seven days. At VI cksburg the river is one foot and two inches balow the great flood of 1882, but the very high stage of water in the lower Arkansas renders it certain there will be no relief at Vicksburg. Ordinary prudence demands under the present pros pacts that extreme flood conditions should everywhere be provided against. AT NEW ORLEANS. New Orleans, March 14 —The government gauge at 7:80 this morning showed a slight fail in the river from the highest point reached yesterday afternoon The streets here this morning are free from overflow water along the water front, except at Bt. Peter’s street, and there the flow will soon be stopped. It rained all night and it is drizzling this morning. A LEVEE BROKE. New Orleans, March 14.—The levee at Nita Plantation, sixty-five miles above this city, on this side of the river, broke last night and in less than two hours the break was twenty-five feet wide. The water from this crevasse will do little damage as it will flow into the lake. THE CONDITIONS MOBB SATISFACTORY New Orleans, March 14.—The condition of affairs on the river front this evening is much more satisfactory than at the same time yesterday. The c% authorities aided by the railroad! strengthened the weak places in th*! levee and constructed temporary levees of bags filled with earth from St. Louis to Hospital street and other points, but from Bt. Louis street to the canal, where so much water came in yesterday, nothing has yet been done. The levees in this seoion are injured mure just now by the wind and weather than by the flood. To day the wind is blowing from the north with a velocity of thirty miles an hour. Governor Nichols issued a proclamation requesting all steamers to keep as near mid-stream as possible and run as slow as circumstances will permit during the present freshet in the lower Mississippi. The waves from passing vessels have done a good deal of damage to the temporary work on the levees. A GENERAL OVERFLOW APPREHENDED. Bt. Louis, March 14.—Reports from the lower Mississpipi regarding the flood state that the part of country between the Arkansas line and Vicksburg on both sides of the river is in imminent danger of inundation. The water is running over tha Arkansas levees in several places, and they have been abandoned. This means that the Tenses basin in Louisiana will be flooded. All efforts ar#* being concentrated to save the levees in Louisiana between Vicksburg and the Arkansas line and those on the Mississippi shore between Vicksburg and Greenville. If Louisiana goes under, Mississippi may bo eafe. and vice versa. On each side of the river the most heroic exertions have been made for weeks and are now being redoubled. Rain has fallen in torrents everywhere. At all endangered points the work is kept up day and night. Live stock and movables are being taken to places of safety. Over two hundred miles of levees are endangered and a general overflow is considered inevitable There is no cause to apprehend loss of life, but the destruction of property will be great. A dispatch from Natchez says seven inches of rain fell there during forty-eight hours, and it still continues Planters in the low lands are counting upon their plantations being overflowed, as they expect a break at any moment in the weak levees below Lake Providence This would send the water down the Tensas basin and flood plantations all the way to the mouth of the Red river. Latest reports from the upper levees indicate that a general overflow in Louisiana and the lower Yazoo delta may be expected. BRIDGE WASHED AAV AY. Jackson, Miss, March 14 —An iron bridge several hundred feet inHength over Pierre creek on the Natchez, Jackson and Columbia railroad, between Jackson and Harristown, was washed away by the flood last night. FIFTEEN MILES WIDE. Cairo. Iii., March 14—The width of the Mississippi river at the mouth of the Ohio is now about fifteen miles, but this vast body of water is slowly receding. THE HIGHEST EVER REACHED. Memphis, Tenn., March 14—To-night the river is 34.5, the highest ever reached and is still rising. The openion here is that the levees on the Mississippi side will be able to withstand the press use of the great flood but the situation on the Arkansas side below Arkansas City is far from reassuring, although the damage, should the levee give way, would be slight compared with the disaster which would ensue should the east bank break. Passengers on the Louisville, New Orleans and Texas railroad arriving here to day report novel scenes along the road. Tho low lands and lagoons in the Mississippi delta are flooded until the only dry land visible is the ridge on which the track runs and a few promontories protruding above the water. These places afford shelter tot hundreds of squirrels and other small game. The hula and cabins in the lower iands*re submered several feet in the water. CRITICAL EVERYWHERE . Vicksburg, Miss , March ,18.—The captain of the levee board steamer reports the condition of levees critical everywhere. He considers the Louisiana will inevitably ga under even if the Mississippi levees were down. Great gangs of men are at work trying to save the levees. DiBAeS TO 1LUMOI8 CHOPS jured. On account of the peculiar condition of the scil in that vicinity the] other varieties have fared better. From the reports on fruit in the southern part of the state, where the bulk pf the Illinois crop is raised, it may be safely stated that the peach crop is ruined. Apples and cherries are safe, but pears are injured to a considerable extent. Strawberries, where properly covered and protected, are not extensively injured; but where they were not cared for they ard killed or have suffered badly.    | BAW A MIB ACHE    H Lmv« Cl tv BupudM la th* Air Hear Aihlaai, Oil* — VMM* for Some Tina#. Ashland, March 14 —A remarkable instance of a mirage was witnessed here yesterday abcnt four o’clock in the afternoon. It presented a picture of a clear and well defined city, full sized, though of course inverted, and appear ing iike a large city suspended in the air or falling through it, as the ground on which it stood was not reflected. Church steeples and walls of houses were slightly inclined. The phenomena seemed to be only a few hundred yards above the earth and was visible for nearly three-quarters of an hour. The day was clear and calm with a cloudless sky. Many spectators claimed that the city reflected was Mans field, thirty miles distant; others say it was Sandusky, eighty-five miles away, and each party professed to recognize buildings in those places. B«l*4 By rn LaaSalld*. Cumberland, Md, March 14—This morning a huge rock rolled down the mountain side and fell upon the West Virginia Central railroad track in a cut forty miles west cf this city. A work train with a crew of twelve men were dispatched to remove the obstruction. While they were at work a great mass of earth came rushing from the steep mountain side and buried some of the men from sight. Two were dead when taken out, one has since died and three others are seriously, if not fatally, injured. Ban Into a Land Slid*. Mamsfield, Ohio, March 14 —A fast vestibule train on the Baltimore and Ohio road ran into a land slide near Newark this morning. The engine was thrown into the river and the fireman, Thomas Boland, was killed and en ginees, McCoy and Hart, the latter a passenger on the engine, were seriously injured. _ A Steam Schooner Lost at Sea Astoria, Ore., March 14 —The steam schooner George H Chance, belonging to the Porland deep-sea fishing fleet, which left here a month ago for a short cruise, is reported lost. The vessel carried a crew of fifteen. A revenue cutter has gone in search of the vessel. T vwo Mea Burned to Death. Johnstown, Pa., March 14 —Late last night a frame building on the Pennsylvania railroad, six miles east of here, used as a sleeping apartment for laborers employed in rebuilding the viaduct at that place, was burned and two men perished.  _ A Court Rom* Borne Geneva, 111., March 14 —The Kane county court house burned last night together with its contents. The county records were in the vault and are thought to be safe. Eighteen prisoners in the basement were removed to a hotel and closely guarded._ A DAMAGING BOLL. Monoy Found on Bohor Idantlfltd ma Bur Boy Baun Funds Minneapolis, March 14 —In the trial of Perrin, at Ashland to-day, two employes of the treasury department at Washington identified a roll of money bund upon Baker as part of the package of $6,000 sent by the treasury department to the National Exchange bask at Milwaukee, and by them to the First National bank at Ashland, and from there deposited in the Iron Exchange bank at Hurley on the day of the robbery.

Under cross-examination he said most of the trouble aboard the Enterprise occasioned by a “tough gang’’ of which Walker was one of the toughest. Sergeant Monroe relating the Walker incident said the man used bad language would not stop it, and the captain struck him. Several other marines and seamen testified to the same effect.

Mr. Hale, from the committee on appropriations reported the urgency deficiency bill, and said he would call it up I !or action next Monday. The Blair educational bill was then taken up as unfinished business and Teller addressed the senate in support of it. Speaking of the race problem, he said h e did not admit that the problem was so great that it might not be solved, because, if he did, he should despair of the republic. If the southern people and the negroes could not live together in a state of political equality and political harmony there was an end to republican government in one-third, at least, of the area of the United States. He had no Key to the solution, but he believed education might in some respect help to solve it. If the colored people were educated the chances would se better that the races would live together on better terms. Ignorance and vice went hand in hand. If the south alone were able and wining to try to educate the colored race the people of the north would not complain; but if the south lacked either the desire or ability it was right and proper that the north should come to its aid. Mr. George said if the senators on 30th sides of the chamber were to bring to the solution of the question (if a solu lion is possible) the charity and kindness and good feeling exhibited by the senator from Colorado a good deal of trouble would be removed. The bill then went over without action. Mr. Call gave a written notice that he would on Monday move to modify certain rules as to executive sessions, the object of the motion being to allow the consideration of nominations, Swayne and Stripling (as judge and district attorney for the northern district of Florida) to be considered in open executive session. Mr. Cullom presented resolutions relative to the death of Representative ownsend, of Illinois, declaring that the senate shared with the house in its expression of sorrow and directing that copies of the resolutions be forwarded to the family of the deceased. He then ironounced eulogium on the desd member. He referred to many similar occasions on which the senate be asked to express its sympathy at the present session, mentioning the death cf Cox, the 3rilliant orator, and Kelley, the great advocate for the protection of American industry and labor. He also named Nutting of New York, Laird of Nebraska, and Gay of Louisiana After appropriate remarks by Vest, Hale and Jones of Arkansas, the senate The Shortest MIU on Record Golden Gate. San Francisco, March 14 —The fight between Billy Murphy and Tommy War ren at the Occidental club to-night, for a purse of $1 800 and the featherweight championship, was one of the shortest on record in this city. In the first round after a sharp ex change Murphy reached Warren’s neck with a right hander and sent him down. In the second round Murphy again reached Warren’s neck and sent him against the ropes but he railed quickly. In the third round Warren took the aggressive and gave Murphy some staggering blows in the jaw and on the body which distressed him. In the fourth round Murphy started in with a vicious rush and after some sharp interchanges the men clinched. The referee tried to separate them but they fell Warren underneath and Murphy’s knee pressing his stomach. When Murphy rose Warren lny on the floor evidently in great pain. L)ud cries of foul were raised. Warren at last got on his feet and the men resumed fighting. Murphy struck Warren in the jaw and knocked him down and just as he was rising the police broke into the ring and stopped the fight. Great confusion again ensued, Warren’s seconds yellicg foul. Finally the referee secured a hearing and awarded the fight to Murphy. The decision was the cause of another outbreak and protests from Warren and his seconds, but the referee remained firm and the crowd soon dispersed. A MANIAC’S DEED.

Kansas City, March 14 -The message from Arkansas City, Kansas, says the reception of the news of the passage through the house of representatives of the bill extending the territorial government over the Cherokee strip, together with the Oklahoma territorial bill, wu received there bv Cherokee boomers with great joy. When the news became general this morning a rush for the strip was made by a thousand or more fami es congregated between there and the [ndian Territory line. Intense excitement prevails there among the boomers and ley are determined to stake their claims regardless of whatever opposition may ae made by the military. It is reported that a company of United States soldiers from Oklahoma City are already in the strip awaiting tile advance of the boomers, and that a special train is bearing reinforcements from Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. “on to the strip!’’ Arkansas City, Kas., March 14.—“On to the Strip!” That WM the signal for the invasion of the Cherokee outlet by the anxious “boomers” who had been gathered on the border of the strip for the pMt forty-eight hours. It echoed around the outlet from midnight until dawn this morning and when the sun rose over the promised land the invasion was fairly begun. All day long a line of canvMB covered prairie schooners drew into the coveted land and to night it is estimated from different points of entrance fully twenty thousand people have passed the border, and half that number have staked claims. The strip is invaded. For a month pMt, in i'act ever since President Harrison issued the proclamation cadering the cattle men to vacate the outlet, “boomers” have been gathering on the frontier. They were all sorts of people and came in all sorts of ways. Some who could not afford the luxury even of a wagon, tramped to the border besides their horses aden with household goods and children. At all principal points of assembly the “boomer” Msociations of various kinds had been formed. It bad been the general belief among the leaders that President Harrison would not insist upon their removal when once established upon the claims. Yesterday afternoon all WM quiet among the boomer*. Six hours later a scene of excitement wu witnessed (quailing that which accom plished the openihg of Oklahoma a year ago. The news was received from WMhing ton that the Oklahoma bill had passed the house. The news spread and by eleven o’clock the male boomers were making hurried preparations to move at once over the border. The sun WM just rising when the first team started The nvasion came with a rush. No one ex pected it; not even the settlers them selves. Tennants of the Strip, the Cher okee Live Stock association and ther agents were taken unawares. The Indian police force was too insignificant to oppose the invaders. The gov eminent, so far as it is known, had taken no precautions to arrest the possible movement of the settlers, and it was not until early this morning that the military appeared upon the scene. Captain Bor bank, in command of a small force of troops at Oklahoma City, marched into the strip late lMt night to stay the pro gross of the boomers, but so far as known, this force had no effect in retarding the movement. On entering the strip the cattle grazing there looked upon the unusual scene with alarm, and a stampede ensued which the cowboys in charge were unable to either cheek or control. The cattle fled five or six miles before the invaders from the north, where they were met by boomers coming up from Oklahoma. Between thwart wo fires they were driven east and west Arriving on the strip the settlers staked their claims. Advices from Kiowa says five hundred boomers started from there. Just as the wagons were ready to move a big prairie fire was discovered raging in the outlet It is thought it may have been set by cattle people to drive back the settlers. So anxious, however, were the boomers that not evenflre could stop thys cad they proceeded, avoiding it by    * hundred more went should ba able to give information without detriment to the negotiations.
