The Road How Ever is Able to operate from Bastrop to Fairbanks Over its own line. The line North of Bastrop is in operation for seven or eight Miles Only for it is impossible to Cross Bayou Bartholomew which has flooded the tracks of this line. Trains run to the nearest Point to flood and then return. The fact that this Railroad is Able to run to Fairbanks serves merchants and Gas and Carbon plants in the outlying Fields from Monroe. A record breaking Detour As to length is said to be that of the Missouri a Sunshine special a which was due in this City from the North at 9 o clock last night. This train detoured Over the Illinois Central system from Memphis to Vicksburg and to Monroe and it is said that similar detours May be required for several Days time. Officials of the Road stated that this is of the longest if not the longest detours that they have Ever had cognizance of in past Railroad history. Bus lines wore operating in All directions out of Monroe with the exception of southward to Alexandria. Yesterday buses made the run from Monroe to Rochelle where the Waters of Little River preclude further passage. It is said that the roadbed has been almost completely repaired As Well As the Bridge restored at that Point but today the Lone Star Highway a Short distance North of Columbia is closed the water standing about three feet Over the Highway and stopping bus traffic As Well As All other automobiles.

Filled sacks have been thrown around the Cement under the Railroad Bridge on the Eastern Bank to prevent sloughing off of the Bank around the facing. City prisoners Are being used to build Low Points on the River Bank just North of the Salt water natatorium. This Point is being entered opon in an Effort to forestall any flood water breaking through on the City Power Plant Only several blocks from the River. Jailer w. W. Curtis states that plans Are being Laid by the Parish authorities to use Parish prison labor on Bank and levee work shortly in Effort now being under Way to secure enough sacks with which to begin work. The interurban transportation company management announces that the water across the Lonroe Coluni Bia Road just North of Colagioia had halted Monroe Alexandria sus service. It is still possible to Ford water in the Road with a Light car but not with the big buses. However through bus service to is also dependent on the Little River which is flowing Over the Road just North of Rochelle. Where Little River is flowing Over the Road has been impassable with any kind of car but the bus management this a morning announced that Little River was falling and service May be restored today after a suspension of several Days by transferring passengers from buses on Side of the Ponds in the Road to buses on the other Side. Jonesboro bus service has not been discontinued but an impassable depth of water across the Jonesboro Road just out of West Monroe has state Shoul caused it to become necessary to leave the t it in cities on Tho Ruston Road and about eight Miles out Cut Back across to the Jonesboro Road Over the cd Spiera Road. The water now backing on West Lonroe is not coming from any particular place but across Evory Low Point in the Western Bank. True the bulk of the water is through the Little Black Bayou route but the fact is that the ouachita River is just beginning to leave its Banks ail along wherever the water will flow by Gravity Over them and in addition is rapidly backing every Slough and Bayou draining into it. With the River steadily rising and with levee Banks strained to the utmost at Many Points on either Side of its course the twin cities have just passed through another 24 hours of preparation for the meeting of any that arise. While it is not greatly anticipated that the flood Waters will leave the her Banks and inundate streets to any great extent in Monroe yet precautions Are being taken. The City and Parish engineers Ara seeing to it that everything possible is done to protect the City and also to strengthen the levees. Great amounts of sacking for Sand bags have been ordered the past several Days. Wires have gone to Nashville to St. Louis to new Orleans and other cities urging the sending of As Large a Supply As possible. C. W. Wallace of the Union Oil Mill company West Monroe and Lieber amp company of Monroe have been Busy securing As Large As possible Supply of sacking. The last named company has secured and quickly Aupi it lied to willing buyers such As the Parish Tho state Highway department and private firms no less than 50,000 bags since last Friday it a stated today. Large corps of men Are scouring the country round about with trucks ready to Purchase any ii in to be had in this Lino and convey to Monroe for Tho work of flood Protection.
