FLOODS BECOME MQREJIENACING levees Along Mississippi Are Gradually Breaking, DEATH LIST REACHES EIGHT BELIEVES TAFT WILL WIN But Croker Declines to Discuss Demo- cratic Situation. New York, April Croker. former Tammany Hall chieftain, as- serted that Theodore Roosevelt has no chance in the contest for the Republic- an nomination. "Roosevelt has killed declared Croker. "President Taft will have the united Republican party behind him. The Democrats will have to unite solidly behind their candidate if they want to win." Croker declined contest. to discuss the Democratic SQUAD WAGON HITS TEAM RUNNING AWAY Two StrPal Firemeri Receive Fatal Injuries. St. Paul, April a result of the collision of the new automobile squad wagon and a runaway team Michael McGarry and Nicholas Savage are dying at St. Joseph's hospital. The best medical skill of the city was ob- tained for the two fire fighters, but all hopes of recovery have been given up Frank .Green, another member of the squad, who was seriously injured, will recover. Lieutenant James Niles and Hugh Connolly both left the hos- pital antl are rapidly recovering from their injuries at home. Thomas K-elly was only bruised in the accident. George Swickle and Ed Bayers, "driver, are much improved and both wJll reoover. The "flyer" was running at a ter- rific clip in answer to a fire call when the collision occurred. A runaway team swung directly In front of the squad wagon. Eyewitnesses declare that the apparatus made two complete somersaults and landed on the side- walk. -One of the horses of the wagon wate disemboweled and the other dashed up the street unhurt. The. wagon, was totally wrecked. The front of the squad wagon was torn to pieces and the apparatus was damaged generally. Area Affected by the Large Volume of Water Is Not Much Larger, but the Danger of Many Levees Crumbling Away Under the Strain and Weight of the Fast Rushing River Is Hourly Growing More Critical. St. Louis, April area affect- ed by the flood caused by almost an unprecedented volume of water in the Mississippi has not extended a great deal, but the situation at the deluged centers coniinues to become more menacing. But two more levee breaks were reported. These were near Ches- ter, 111., where acres of farming land were inundated. Twelve hours of sunshine and slight check in the river's rise have combined to give the general situation a more optimistic outlook in the opin ion of government engineers, who said if the stage at Memphis does not go over 45 feet the government levees will hold. The weather forecaster at however, urged managers of railroads entering that. city from the west to warn inhabitants of those districts to move to higher ground immediately. The number of lives lost was brought to eight when, the death of three railroad men near Fulton, Ky., was reported and two more were drowned near Clarksville, Tenn. The latter drove oft the road into-overflow water of the Red river. That 'the loss of life has not been greater is due to the warning given lowland dwellers of the coming high water. On Verge of Starvation. Hickman, Ky., is the worst sufferer. The homeleas-'tohabitants of the t'dwn were. attgmtentfed.'by "the' arrival of refugees from Dorena, Mo. The food supply at JlickLuaii will last only three more days.' No trains have been run in or out of town for several days and foods and tents en route there still are held up by washouts. Unless aid comes soon many will go hungry. At Columbus, which was-the first town to be" inundated, the -situa- tion is grave. Residents are leaving rapidly and there is much suffering in outlying districts. The damage in that vicinity is estimated at Damage at Memphis Is conservative- estimated at About ersons have been driven from homes. Charitable organizations are taxed to aeir capacity. The gas plant was i ut of commission and this adds tu he distress. Reports from New Madrid, Mo., are r.eager. The town is flooded, but no oss of life is reported. The damage s not known. The seriousness of the situation Is ict limited to the river towns. Small ributaries have overflowed their ianks and it is estimated that fully acres of' farm lands in Ken- ucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas and Mississippi are flooded and prob- ably more are untilled because jf fear that the levees protecting them may break.

CLOSED SHOPS ARE LEGAL Jury Decides Hatters' Agreement Is Not Against Public Policy. Danbury, Conn., April jury in the superior court, by a verdict, an- swered negatively a question whether trade agreements between hat manu- facturers and union hatters, under which the manufacturers agreed to employ only members of the union in their shops, were contrary to public policy in that they deprived nonunion journeymen hatters from earning their living. Tbe decision of the jury is as- seried to be a victory for organized labor. The case was that of Dominick O'Conner vs. Patrick H. Connolly and the Danbury Hatters' union. O'Con- nor, formerly a member of the union, was suspended for nonpayment of as- sessments at the conclusion of the strike In 1910 and lost his position in a local factory for that reason. O'Connor sued for damages alleging that the loss of his position was djiie to conspiracy.___ TWO POWDER BLAST Laflln-Rand Powder Mills Blew Up a Mayne, N. J. Little Falls, N.

Milwaukee, April complete returns from Wisconsin presidential preference primary, it became known, will 'net be available until the official canvass of the ballot is made. Elec- tion oKeials in several scores' ol coun- try precincts sealed the ballots and directed their return, -to the county officials without making'known tbe re- sult of the count. Efforts to get a check on the missing precincts by long distance telephone and telegraph proved unavailing in nearly every instance. Late returns summarize the situa- tion as Wilson certain of four delegates at large and six districts. Clark gets two districts, a third is in doubt and two other districts are probably the scene of conflict, for Clark dele- gates were elected the preferential vote was for Wilson and the Wilson men insist that the Clark delegates voted for Wilson because of the pri- majority against their personal preferences. It was generally conceded that Sen- ator La Follette had defeated Presi- dent Taft on the Republican ticket by approximately to votes. RIVER SITUATION CRITICAL Weather Bureau at Washington Sums Uti Situation. Washington, April weather bureau issued this Uood bulletin: river situation is critical from C-.-.'.ro to the mouth of the Mississippi- f the levees hold floods will doubt- ess be the greatest of which the gov- ernment has record.

The Illinois Central levee was holding and that protects the main part of the town. It is reported many persons were made homeless. News of the exact situation is difficult.-to obtain.

Louisville, April Taft's statement, that he is a progressive was disputed by Colonel Roosevelt iri a speech here. The former president said Mr. Taft, in some of. his acts, had shown himself to be a reactionary. Th6 colonel went over the record of the present administration in cer- tain particulars and criticised It sharply. His speech came at the end of the first day of his week of campaigning through West Virginia, Kentucky, Illi- nois and Pennsylvania. He broke his record for speeches for the present campaign, delivering fifteen. Thir- TO LINE UP THE LAWYERS Root and Others Start Movement Against Recall of Judges. New York, April appeal is- sued by a n-uml.jr of leading lawyers of New York, including Joseph H. Cnoate, Senator Elihu Root, B. P. Tra- cy, former secretary of the navy, and others, was given out stating that they believe it to be the "special duty of lawyers to uphold the independence of the judiciary and.to aid in pl-eSerVItig the guarantees of the Constitution." At the same tiaie it was announced that this appeal would be published here as an advertisement. It calls for the formation of an independent judicial association, the purposes of which are stated as follows: "It shall be the object of such asso- ciation to combat current and all like proposals in respect to the recall of judges and the reversal of judicial de- cisions by popular vote, by making clear to the electorate the dangers to the public welfare which we believe are of necessity involved in the adop- tion of such proposals." BITTER ATTACK BY BAILEY Senate Passes Bill Putting Prohibitive Tax on Matches. Washington, April the face of a. bitter attack by Senator Bailey the senate passed the Esch-Hughes bill to put a prohibitive tax upon the manu- facture or importation of white phos- phorus matches.

When the labor agitators and the General Campa Meets Surprisingly Largo Force of Government Soldiers at Parral and After Attacking Them Sent Scurrying Back to His Base at May Abandon Campaign Against Torreon. Jiminez, Mex., April troops of President Madero gained their first victory in the northern campaign, when they the Liberal general, Campa, at Parral and sent him scur- rying back to the base at this :ity. Instead of finding a handful of de- fenders at Parral, under General Pan- cho Villa, he was met by deadly fire from a force which he estimated at under the command of Generals Villa, Tellez, Unbina and Soto. Campa opened the fight at dawn? firing at long range with his. artillery. Attempting to press closer he was met by a withering fire and retreated, hav- ing lost three killed and twelve wound- ed, according to his own report, and having lost one ..of his big guns. The presemce of the federals in force at Parral and the knowledge that an- other government force is approach- ing Escalon seems to Indicate that the rebels must abandon their campaign against Torreon aad -defend them- selves in decisive battle in the neigh- borhood of Jiminea. The government troops apparently have been strongly reinforced and re- organized. They seem determined to retrieve their recent defeat, brought about largely by blunders and acci- dents and to press the fighting. General Pascual Orozco now faces an enemy on his flank at P.irral and another coming from the south, pre- sumably General Huerta. who, with men, was hurried north.from the City of Mexico a week ago, but too late to avert defeat at that time. Campa left here Monday with 800 men and met no opposition until in front of Parral. He was allowed to take a seemingly advantageous posi: tion without opposition. No sooner had he posted his men, however, than he discovered In a rain of bullets and shell that the federals were concealed on a commanding hill, known as La Prieta. The federals gave chase when Cam- pa retreated. latter left a rear juard of 400 under Major Quevado to check and harrass the federals and to cover his retreat. As the country is rugged and mountainous, with deep arroyos In which much larger forces might -conceal themselves, Quevado was able to retard his pursuers while Campa returned to the base.

Everywhere he found large crowds and a cordial reception. In his recent speech at Philadelphia Colonel Roosevelt said: "President Taft stated that tie was a progressive and this raises the question as to what a progressive is." The colonel gave his definition of a progressive, on the basis of which he undertook an analysis of the attitude of the administration toward a num- ber of questions. He took up the rail- road rate bill, enforecement of the pure food law, the conservation ques- tion and other subjects which have engaged the attention of the adminis- tration.
