Let us work together mutually tax tiie city such a per centage on the hundred dollars and tax our land so much on the acre Outside of the moving back of the levee in front of my place in 1876 and strengthening it this year also of putting in four wingdams at the same place with the exception of some piles that the Supervisors drove several years ago there has not been done one hundred dollars worth of work to my knowledge for sixteen years between Btreet and Freeport No levee can stand sixteen years without some repairs or additions For the last five years I have been stating that our levee must be raised and made wider As long as the gopher holes were kept closed we did not look for the levee to break where it did for we could staud twenty inches more of water Whether the city joins ns or not I will assure her citizens that we have got pluck aud means enough left to build up the break and levee higher wider and stronger than ever and shall do it and when the uext great raise of waters comes we will look out from our cottages among the orchards hop yards and cabbage patches with all the serenity of a rural granger and say to the noble old Sacramento river as tho palaces of human freight and commerce float up and down upon her bosom thus far thou go aud no It is a common thing to join two distinct interests aud thereby create a mutual interest for both If the city will agree to take charge of the levee to Freeport I will agree to use my best endeavors to raise a handsome sum from the two districts below and hand it over to the proper authority for levee purposes Daniel Flint A meeting of the workingmen of this city who sympathize with tho Kearney movement was held at Father Mathew Hall last evening The attendance was largo and much enthusiasm and some confusion prevailed A number of tbe members of tiie Workingmen's organization were also present and an attempt was make by several of tiie speakers to heal the I reak now existing in the ranks of the new party but it proved unsuccessful Tbe meeting was called to order by Thomas Sheehan and Johnson was ele'ted President and addressed the meeting Senator Bones also made an address counseling unity steadfastness and moderation and remarks were made by Day Mr Gliistcr ami Harrow the latter in reference to statements be had made and urging a union of the two wings A meeting of tho same party will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 at the intersection of Tenth and streets The Grand Island Information was received in this city yesterday to tiie effect that trouble was being experienced on Grand Island in tiie lower Sacramento on account of the wingdain on tbe Old Biver side of the island having pai tiully been washed out thus letting the water against the levee and nu-deruliiliug it slightly Iu consequence of Ibis lion Kerclieval and Clarke went down yesterday empowered to build a new levee around the old oue if necessary There are two levees at the ttingilam and it is the belief that tiie outside ono is the levee which was giving way Tiie captain of llio steamer Whip-pie who passed tiie island at 5 last evening reports that everything was all right tt tiiat tune and no trouble was apprehended A dispatch received in this city from It Kerclieval this morning from the island and dated 10:15 A says tiie levee is all right tiie washout is under control aud the island is looking Condition of the tt Mi-cel-iaueuua The levees aud the water and the surroundings thereof are in about the same condition to-day as slerday Nothing definite has been done toward attempting close the break nor it is likely that anything will be done in that direction unless the owners of property below the city take an interest in having it closed they care not why slionld others care that seems to be the gtuerul fueling on Bubjoet So far as we can learn the water has yet tapped tbe Freeport levee but it likely to do so one of these days and then of oourse that levee will be wept away As yet there is not much harm done to land or crops but the amount of damage that may be done depends altogether on the bight the water may reach and tbe period of its durance on the land But for the Freeport levee backing it up the curreut would have been confined mainly to the lakes aud iow uncultivated districts and below that point where there are not levees to back it up till it reaches far far down it is not much feared outside the street levee The water continues to rise slowly and raised an inch and a quarter during the past twenty-four hours The wash against the levee has no perceptible efiect and no water is seeping through at any point on the entire line INSIDE THE LEVEE On the city side the drainage water raised yest rday in consequence of the two pumps getting out of order and being compelled to shut down for a time Last evening they were again started up aud ran well during the night aud all of to-day the water showing a reduction Another pump is being placed in positiou Fourth street and this iB expected to start up very soon With the three pumps working constantly no difficulty will be experienced in keeping down the drainage water POISONING THE GOPHERS The Levee Commissioners have placed poisoned carrots aud wheat along the north levee from Seventh street to Brighton to poison the gophers aud other animals that are apt to injure the levee and citizens owuiug live stock will do well to keep it away from that vicinity The gophers have been driven by the watt from tbe low lands to the upper portion of the levee and have burrowed great number of boles recently These are being shipped np as fa-t as discovered aud the poison will lie kept out for several weeks as a preventive MEETING TO-NIGHT After consultation witbanumbir of citizens and neighbors Frederick Mier has called a meeting of those interested iu the matter to be held at the County Court House this evening for the pur pose of discussing and considering levee matters All who are iu aDy way interested should inako it a point to he on hand and givo expression to their views as by this means only can a satisfactory conclusion be arrived at A citizen suggests that if the owners of property iu tbe ovorllowed district show any proper desire to have the break stepped and will subscribe liberally for that purpose he will be the one to seek subscriptions iu this city to aid them As yet he says they have done nothing for themsi Ives and until they become activo and earnest in the matters not only iu words but in works they cannot expect others come to their assistance or to do thi ir work while they themselves remain idle The wagoner had to work before Jupiter would come to his aid MISCELLANEOUS The report bo exh nsively circulated ytsterilay to the efiect that the Signal Service Department had predicted for this vicinity a terrible stoiin the worst of the season to take place next Monday or Tuesday is without foundation according to Signal Service Officer Watkins of this city The rheumatic barometers however indicate that the storm is nut yet over The north and east levee appear to be in good order but thus far this year there has not been enough water in tbe American river to much more than reach their base At tho break in the levee tbe rush of water is decreasing i-s tbe river falls aud the precautions taken to prevent the end from washing further have tlieiUsired eff'Ot On the mountains this morning the weather was clear aud the barometer wus up On tho California and Oregon road the weatliL-r was cloudy to-day The wind last evening shifted ronuil to the north and has been at tiiat point all day The sun has been sliming but clouds are still plcuty in the sky The river at noon to-day was 21 feet and 1 inch above low water a fall of one inch

one liss taken up their pen to say a word in favor or to defend District No 287 the present overflowed laud I want to say a word and sign my own name to it Any porson can see that it will nut do to depend entirely on the street luvio for our defence on the south If the water continues to ruu through the break for two weeks as it does new I look to see it at Btreet from two to three feet highor than at present aud the consequence will be that it will take half a dozen pump sto keep out the sipage water This sipage water is an inconvenience that will be duly appreciated before we are through with our present trouble Citizens below the city do Dot want or Ak the city to keep up tbe levee to Freeport free of cost to them We are anxious that our lauds shall be assessed for that purpose and the money put into a fund with tiie city as a mutual protection to both This district should begin somewhere above the Bugar factory and run ea-t of the Upper Stockton road taking in all lands tiiat drain through Burns Sprague aud Willow sloughs and continue down to east of Freeport or railroad embankment The levee is good from street to Freeport with the exception of two or three weak places Of course it needs to be made higher and in some places a little wider Tako what we can raise in the two districts below and what it will cost to put a levee across at Suttervillo and we can make a levee from street to Freeport that will be safe and a credit to the oountry The people living below the city are just as much interested iu keeping up the American river levee as they are their own If the north levee breaks and tho gaps are closed in Btreet woo be unto those that do not live on high grade or second story houses I hear a good many howling about closing the crevasse for fear that it will cost them something but I have not heard oue of them saying a word about the expeuso of filling up the gaps iu 11 street or the other greater expense pumping out the sipage water Give me the amouut of money that will be spent on the stroetlevee this season aud with what I can gt from the two districts below and I will put the ievie in good condition from street to Freeport The only way this city has to get rid.
