By PAL~i7r.~MALLON (United Press Staff Correspondent) .WASHINGTON, Feb.'7-Only one of the seven prohibition reform bills, the tariff and Muscle Shoals are on the program privately agreed upon by the senate republican leaders for the remainder of this session of congress. The program would discard until next year the other six prohibition measures recommended by President Hoover's law enforcement' commis- sion- TtTcalls for adjournment of the present session the week of June 9, but contemplates, of course, pass-ago of the usual government supply bills and mnior measures which will come up. The program Was worked out by the leaders of the various senate groups and while It is not an official decision, it will have effect as such, in view of the existing senatorial situation and the practice prevailing of permitting: the leaders to work out the legislative program. 1 probably will sidetrack until next .session such important legislative proposals as railroad consolidation and the Oouzcns communications bill. Since the prohibition reform hills were laid down by the commission, it lias been obvious to the leaders that only one, the Williamson bill transferring prohibition enforcement from the treasury to the justice department now before the house could After the first day of debate, it appeared the Williamson bill would easily be passed by the house probably tomorrow. The only contest Was centering around the proposal to transfer jurisdiction over industrial alcohol to the justice department along with the rest of the prohlbiion unit. The pending amendment, endorsed by a large group of wets and drys, proposes to take alcohol supervision out of the hands of Secretary of Treasury Mellon. While debate on the Williamson bill continued in the house, the judiciary committee cpntinund hearing Chairman Wickersham of the law enforcement commission a^id his colleague Dean Roscoe Pound on the constitutionality of their proposal to enlarge the powers of United States commissioners. The senate continued voting.upon individual amendments to the tariff bill, with leaders serving notice that all republicans must he present every minute -so the full strength of the majority may. be represented. Recently the republicans have not fared so well dueto the absence of some members of their group. MANY UNDERGROUND STREAMS NEAR BELLEVUE HAVE FLOODED THOUSANDS OF ACRES OF FINE FARM LAND Unable To Carry Off Surplus Water They Force Thousands Of Gallons To Surface. �> .IAS. A. RYAN BELLKVI'E. Feb. 7 - Over three thousand acres of the finest wheat and corn land in the southern-section of Erle-co are under water. No surface rivers or large, streams penetrate the devastated area"-the streams are. all under ground and Instead of carrying the waters to the lake, ten miles to the north, they deposit the excess supply on pro? ductive fields through thousands of little springs or openings In the soil formed by the force of water filling the many chambers in the limestone formation many feet below the surface of the earth. The main highway leading from Bellevue to Castalia, nine miles to *   *   * the north, is impassable and has been for the past three weeks. In order, to reach Bellevue from Castalia it is necessary to make a three-mile detour and take the county line road into the latter town - and as one passes along the county line road a boiling spring is seen throwing up thousands of gallons of water each hour of the day and night. There are hundreds of springs ah the way from Byers Hill to Bellevue, but the one along the road Is the largest so far discovered by the excited farmers. This spring is about four feet wide and as the water flows through the, opening small streams are formed and water flows on and on until the depressions of the rolling land are covered for a distance of seven miles to the south. The imposing. farm homes of C. W. -Meyers and C. W. Hawk on the Castalia-rd are on the brink of an inland lake, while a few hundred feet to the north is the residence of Clarence Anderson on the Smith farm, entirely surrounded by water. At this point the water is twelve feet deep and to reach the home of Anderson it is necessary to take a boat. Whatever produce Anderson has to deliver to market is ferried across the waters to the shore, six Some Farm Homes Marooned So That Boats Are Necessary To Reach Highways hundred feet distant. Forty inches of water fill the cellar of the Anderson home-every farm home cellar is full of water. The rise of waters in the subterranean stream broke forth with thundering report on the night of January 12. Farmers living in the vicinity did not know the cause of the noise. Next morning they found sections of their farms all under water. The waters continued to rise for the next three weeks and it was only a few days ago that some little recession in the stage was noticeable. One farmer tilling over one hundred acres of land has only a few square feet of dry land and this spot is covered by his home am% a few outbuildings. R. C. Deyo, the owner of about four hundred acres of fine farm land, reports three hundred acres under water - and this is the story one hears all along the highway. Byers Hill, the high est Spot "in Western JWrie-co and The most northerly point the high waters, have reached, is just on the edge of the inundation and from this point and as far as the eye can reach on a clear day it is just one continuous, semi-circular frozen field of ice reaching to the south and into tho north section of the town of Bellevue, and in the eastern part of this thriving little railroad center mans* cellars are filled with water. This is the first time in the life of the oldest inhabitant that the high water has remained for so long a period of time, and it is the first timo in the memory of the oldest resident that the rise of water came so early in the year. With a rise in temperature a great volume of water is to be released during the next few weeks and the farmers along the road are wondering when tho underground stream will commence to take back its overflow. There is no outlet to the hundreds of little lakes that covers the country for miles-a small volume finds its way into Sandusky bay by way of Mills creek,' but the great volume must sink back into the earth before the land will be in condition to work.   Farmer bovs unable tn work on the land are skating on the ice State Highway Department To Be Asked For Relief, Fear Worss Flood In Spring. m. the miniature lakes-and skating is not always a pleasure for the reason that the boiling springs wear away tho bottom of the ice field and leave dangerous openings from which even a farm boy would find difficulty in extricating himself. R. C. Deyo, one of the best known farmers along tho highway and the owner of some four hundred acres of land, states that the present flood is more damaging to roads and farm land than the high waters of the year 1913 - the last year of flooded conditions   in the   section. "That year," he said, "tho water came up along about the middle of April and remained on the surface about four weeks. This year the water rose during the month of January, it is still here, and the early sparing thaw with its rains to follow will surely prove disastrous (Turn to Page Six-No. 1) I Where Taft Battles for Life i Just Another Chicago Day - - -      ' � '   � In this red brick house in "Washington, near the scene.of his political triumphs, physicians are fighting for the life of William Howard Taft, 73-year-old former President and retired Chief Justice of the United States.

Hagner, Taft's personal physician who is attending him in his critical illness. LOOK INTO DEATH OF MRS. SEVIER, WIFE OF COLONEL Brother In Honolulu Fears There Is Some Mystery Connected With Case. By RUEL S. MOORE. (United Press Staff Correspondent.) (Copyright 1930 by United Press). HONOLULU, T. II., Feb. 7-A sensation was precipitated today in the military and social world here by issuance of an order for a coroner's   inquest   into   the death of Mrs. Marion D. Sevier, former New York heiress and wife of an army colonel. Sheriff Patrick Gleason announced that the Inquest and. investigation long sought by Ralph   Shainwald, brother of the dead woman, would be granted immediately. Mrs. Sevier,'wife of Colonel Granville Sevier of the 64th Coast Artillery, died on August 27, 1928 in Honolulu. After the funeral, the body was placed in a vault. Colonel Sevier, announced that he desired to take it to the mainland with him when his assignment to island service expired. The death certificate said  Mrs Sevier   died   of   various ailments, chief of which was arterio sierosis. Sheriff Gleason's decision to hold the inquest resulted from assertions by prpminent Hawaiian medical men that the causes ascribed in the death certificate appeared false. An unofficial autopsy was performed April 15,   1929.   It revealed that practically all the vital organs (Turn to Page 8-No. 8.) Hunt Girl Who Was Seen In Bellevue BUCVRUS.

Frank Zartman. and magistrate Irvin AVagner. Funds will be collected to aid the hunt, they said.

Ex-President Taft Shows Improvement; Sleeps All Night, Takes Nourishment (United Press Staff Correspondent.) By THOMAS L. STOKES, WASHINGTON, Feb. 7-William Howard Taft passed a restful night last night and today those closely concerned with the .illness of the former chief justice seemed much   encouraged over his condition: A bulletin issued at 11:30 a. m. today by Chief Justice Taft's physicians further    confirmed   the improvement in his condition    noted last night.   The bulletin said he is continuing to improve and is taking more nourishment. He dropped into a quiet sleep at about 8 p. m. yesterday, after having passed a comfortable day. When Dr. Thomas Claytor, his personal physician, called at midnight, he was still asleep and the doctor did noi awaken him. The room where Mr. Taft is being cared for was darh the remainder of the night and it was believed that his sleep continued. Physicians consider rest an important factor in the effort's to, bring about Mr. Taffs recovery. Only Mrs. Taft, the physicians and the nurse, it was understood, saw Mr. Taft yesterday. Dr. Claytor called just before midnight, as has been his custom. He remained in the house for 15 minutes. On coming out he reported that because Mr. Taft was sleeping he did not see him, contenting himself with a study uf the charts and questioning the nurse. Mr. Taft took nourishment   with less difficulty and better relish, last night Dr. Claytor reported. The entire conversation of the physician was more optimistic than at any time since the former chief justice was brought back to his Washington home last Tuesday. Complete quiet, which is a valuable aid to thoso caring for Mr. Taft was even more notable yesterday and last night around the Taft home than on previous days.
