Memphis, Tenn., April 7.^-Thfl feature of the flood in the Mississippi delta is the gradual ^spread of water over an area that hitherto 'was never overflowed. The upper crevasse, in Tunica county, is 2,000 feet wide, aad so great is the outpour that water from below the break IB being drawn up to and hurled but over the fertile valley through the crevasse. All of the country east to the main line of the Tazoo & Mississippi Valley road is flooded, and in many places the water has gone over the tracks, filling the Yazoo river. The fall In the main channel at Helena, Greenville, Vlcksburg and Arkansas City is due to the filling up of the delta and the lower White river country. The, supreme..question is the duration of the flood. If the lower levees along Louisiana and southeastern Arkansas should hold, which It Is believed they will not do, the emptying of the .delta and St. Francis basin will be .slow. If they break and' the river continues to fall at Cairo, the upper St. Francis basin.and the delta will be clear of water by May 6. If this should prove true, there will be. no difficulty In growing cotton. But breaks In Louisiana and southeast Arkansas will hold water in that territory until the middle of May, far after the usual time for- planting cotton In that territory.. The river at Memphis IB'sta- tionary to-night. ' HEAVY DAMAGE DONE. Citizens' Relief Committee of Blecnphls Mukes a Statement. Washington, April 7.—R. C. Graves and J. S.
