This morning three additional break were reported. One was al Htnad'aland lug, IMIvar county, near Australia; tho aciind at Mound landing, tlfteeu miles above this city, and tbe third at SUipp'a landing, seven mile north of tba Mound break. The break at SlesJ's lauding is now 2,000 feet wide and tha lat breaks at Mound and Stopp's landing are now over two hundred yard wide, while the break below here on Ijike Iam Is about six hundred yards wide. These four crevasses are hourly pouring their torrents Into the bottom formed by the Yseoo river bills on the eat and the Miaaiaalppi river buuk on the wust. Ihoiiitands or ItoiHl oouiid iieopie wcro caught and penned in between tbe three liolivcr county breaks, and no communication cau lie had with them.

The refugees from the country this side of the Mound break report thai many families wera in peril of their lives on tb other side of the crevasse, as there Is ouly seven milusof country between them and Stead s. It is neat to lmKssible for all to escape. Two hundred and nrty towns win oe under water In three days and thousands upon thousands of families will be homeless. No losses of human life are yet re ported, but narrow escaie were numerous and the suffering of the a (11 ic ted people is great. i-Jvery lake ana atreom is out of its banks literally wea lth the bodies or drowned animals, many thousands of horses, mules and csttlo being swept away.

Homes and property were gladly aban doned in the mud rush for life. It Is Impossible to estimate the amount of destruction iu dollars and cents. Fvery town and village along the i mzoo A Mississippi Valley railroad is full of homeless refugees. Two-thirds of this en tire valley, which will be one wasto or wuter, Is a thickly populated region. GIOANTIO CREVASSES.

Mad Waters Hushing Across the Fertile Delta laads. Memphis, March 30. There are now three breaks In tbe levee that protects the Mississippi delta from tbe waters of the river. One is seven miles below Oreon-vllle, at Wayside, which is 1,200 foet wide one forty miles north of Greenville, at the bead of tho delta which Is over 1,000 feet wide and the third is opposite Ar kansas City. This stream is as wide as the Hudson, and Is covering the country for miles in the interior.

The water from the Perthshire crevasse tearing through the plantations to the south. The united wators of the three breaks will, with hourly Increasing force and volume, rush over the country and, finally, be thrown back into the main river at the mouth of tho Yazoo, a tow miles north of Vlcksburg. Back thirty to nrty miles rrom tne river run a number or lateral streams, wnicn empty their wators Into the azoo. Ihe whole territory from the main river east to these streams will be, for the most part, under water in forty-eight hours. The recion marked ror destruction is probably 100 miles long and from twenty to twenty-flve miles wide.

The country is a fertile region. Greenville is in great ianger. The water from the middle break will partially flood that town. If the levee In front or Ureen-villo should break, no one can conceive what the loss of life and property would be. 'robabiy 10,000 people are working with a UMSSM1 awl IMi condition.

Cannon, Hepubllcau, of Illinois, prefaced til remarka ith tba dei-laration thai he waa for tha pending bill, ila waa not Ploaacd with all 1U features, lie had never been ulaasad with any ruvenue bill. lie appreciated that there must be a spirit of give and lake, ana lie as irana to say be thought that tbere could well be a duty on blilus, aa tbe impression waa doeply grounded in the weal that a duty on hides would raise tbe price of cattle a dollar a head. Slayden. Democrat, of Texas, expressed gratification that the dormant Republican conscience had been awakened In spots. Ho proceeded to argue that duty on hldea would be a practical benefit to tbe catlle raisers of Texas, Kansas and the Dakotas.

Dingloy defended lha action of the committee. Hepburn then came forward with a vehement speech In favor of a duty on hides. Hepburn declared that tbe wool interests were dwarfed in contrast with the vast cattle interests of the country. Iowa waa more interested in hides than wool. She marketed, annually, W.OOO.OOO worth of bides and not 10 per cent of that amount of wool.

He demanded that the ways and means committee allow tl aense of the House to be taken on the question, and affirmed, with poslllveness, that every liepuulican from the west favored a duty on hides. "We insist," he shouted, 'that the tanning and leather industries of New York. Pennsylvania and New England should not be allowed to stifle the demands of tbe west Vicious Assaalt oa Majority. Norton, -Democrat, of Ohio, made a vicious assat-'t on the majority. Instead of denouncing Cleveland on every occasion, be said the other side ought to be down on their knees at the foet of bis "perspiring obesity and ponderous ponderosity," thanking him for the opportunity he had given them to again "rob the people." Perkins, Kopublican, of Iowa, made a humorous speech of five minutes, deriding the Democracy and Its panaceas for the people's ills.

Henderson, of took oocasion to deny that the bill was tramed in the interest of the east. He pointed out tbat the west held the majority on the committee and that they were entirely competent to care for the lntorosts to which thoy were Tariff on Mexioan Cattle. Cowherd, Democrat, of Missouri, declared the tariff on Mexican cattle was a blow at the farmers, and the wool schedule also. In reply Dolliver read a lotter from Nor-man Gibbs, of Mt. Vernon, presldont of the Short-horn Association, asking for a duty of (10 a head on Mexican cattle, in the name of the cattlemen of that section.

In rebuttal of Dollivor'a lotter, Wheeler read a letter from Hon. Norman J. Coleman, of St. Louis, first secretary of agriculture, asking for an advalorem duty on cattle, so that Mexican stook might be brought Into this country for feeding. Hrucker.
