RECORD No. 2700. MANY TOWNS ARE SUBMERGED FLOOD SWEEPING Impossible to Patch Broken Levee in Louisiana 115,000 PERSONS HOMELESS People in Sugar Growing Country Fleeing For Their Lives Before Mad Rush of Water—Great Morgan Levee, Highest in America, Threatened With Destruction—Property Damage Enormous, New Orleans, May 3.—Submerging scores of prosperous town's and ric.i plantations the combined waters of the Mississippi and the Red rivers, at the highest flood stage in their history, are sweeping southward from the great Torras -crevasse and are and desolation in their leaving ruin wake. Government engineers announced that an attempt to close the break is worse than useless and the forces or workmen v,-ere withdrawn. The federal engineers say without doubt it was craw fish holes in the great dyke that caused it to fall. One hundred and fifteen thousand persons are homeless and in the course of the next few days a quarter of a million persons will be the number. Crops valued at $10,000,000 will have been wiped out. The floods are coursing through the low lying sugar plantations at a much more rapid rate than the waters in the northern part of the state and there seems be nothing to check them between Torras, which is practically the junction of the Red and the Mississippi rivers and the Gulf, of Mexico. At any time an even more serious break is expected to increase enormously the volume of water. The great Morgan sea levee has been pronounced inefficient. The levee is the highest in America and with the exception of two Holland dykes is the highest earth dam in the world. Throughout the "sugar bowl of America," the secfion now being inundated, people are fleeing for their lives. Many attempted to save live stock, but hundreds of horses and car- tie already have been drowned an.! their carcasses, together with the bodies of hundreds of deer, are mingled with the debris of ruined homes and farms. Kar to the south, even along the Gulf coast, where the waters will not arrive for some days yet. the people* are preparing to abandon their possessions and llee. WEATHER EVERYWHERE.

William, the First One, Held Post for Twenty-Five Years, Then (n Straight Succession, Came His Son and Grandson. Bangor, Me.—Horace P. Kilby, acting postmaster at Dennysvllle, Washington county, will take a civil service examination, and if he passes he will succeed H. Howard Kilby, who had been postmaster since June 30, 1SU7. The office has been in the Kilby family for 112 years, -with the exception of two brief intervals. If there is another such, Kepresenta tive Frank Guernsey of the Fourth district, who has just recommended Horace P. Kilby for the place, would like to know it. The Dennysvllle postofilce was established February 24, 180U, with William Kilby as postmaster. Ho held on for twenty-live years, according to the records In the postofilce department, and then, on December U, 1825, presumably about the time William Kilby was gathered to his fathers, John Kilby, presumably his son, quali- - lied ("and remained postmaster tor twenty-seven years. August 20, 1852, Cyrus H. Kilby be- 'came postmaster. Whether he was a .grandson of the first postmaster and the son of the second Is not clear. He held on for less than two years, and :then, April IS, 1854, Benjamin Kilby became postmaster and held the olllce for twenty-two years. December 21, 1876, Howard H. Kilby became postmaster at Dennysville and held the place until February 27, 1886, when Herbert Hallo-well, a member of th« Kilby family, became postmaster. He • remained postmaster until the Democrats elected a president. It required a few months tor the pleas of some of the good Democrats of Dennysvllle tp move Washington, but on June 18, 1S87, Edwin H. Smith was appointed to the place. Presumably he was a Democrat. June 1, 1889, Howard H. Kilby came back into his own and served through the remainder of ths Harrison administration and until July 1, 1893, when Willlnm P. Fenderson got the office during the second Cleveland administration. Again, however, a Kilby was recognized, and June 30, 1897, H.

New York, May 3.—The firemen employed on the eastern rallroads\ have followed the example of the en-? gincers and made a demand for an In- ' crease in pay. This is what the rail- ' road managers expected would happen. As the railroad managers flgured it ^ out hastily the demands of the firemen, if granted, would mean a yearly increase of between $25,000,000 and $30,000,000 to the expenses of the roads Tho engineers asked for about $8,000,000.
