Omaha. April 4. One
track on the levee has been vraskod
away. The flood which is certain
ly coming from x1mvc Sioux city
will do great damage, and ome
predict that the river will cut a
new channel close lo Council
Bluff?, or clear up the bluffs on the
Omaha side. The great gorge be
tween Sioux city and Yankton,
said to have been over fifty miles
loner, has given away, and the vast
. accumulation of water which had
backed up for so long is now hav
ing free flow. All but two or
three buildings at Vermillion have
been swept away. The water is
up to the roofs of cars at the depot,
and at Yankton the water is
up to the front of Jenk's
lmtfM The rorre has caused the
.WW D- ,
river to run out of the channel t
and it is filling the bluffs
from Yankton to Vermillion.
If the river makes a new channel
as indicated it will run across
the country from Vermillion and
empty into big Sioux river three
miles northwest of Elk point, leav
ing about thirty-five miles of the
Dakota Southern railway between
Sioux city and Vermillion on the
Nebraska side. This will be a
tremendous cut-off but not at all
strange with this river.
New York, April 4. It is re
ported on good authority that
within 4S hours or even sooner
after the first copies of the revised
New Testament appears for sale
six publishers will flood the coun
try with reprints of the book at
prices varying from a few cents up
to one dollar. Some of these pub
lishers have made preparations to
surpas, if possible, all former feats
of quick publishing.
Chicago, April 4. The latest
victim of Tom Maguire, of San
Francisco, is said to be Nat Good
win. He was to have opened at
the Baldwin theater on the 18th.
Maguire, however, failed to for
ward tickets at the last moment
and the Goodwin company have
been compelled to close their sea
son six weeks sooner than usual.
This is the third company thai
Maguire has put in a hole within
two months, the Leavitt troupe,

Salt Lakk, April 5. A new
trial has been ordered by the
United States Supreme court in
the Miles Morrfion . case. One of
the conclusions of the court is as
follews: "It is evident from ex
amination of jurors tlmt tliey be
lieved that polygamy was ordained
of God and (hat the practice of
polygamy was in olediencc to the
will of God. At common law this
would have been ground for.chal
lenge of jurors of that faith."
There will probably not lie so
many Mormons on the next jury.
It will be a surprise to the
friends of Gen. Grant, if, after all
that has passed, Hugh J. .Jewctt
should make the World's Fair in
1SS3 a success. It looks that way
now. Mr. Jewctt is a very promi
nent democrat, was a candidate
before the last Cincinnati conven
tion for presidential nomination,
and his success in the "World's
Fair business would add to the
political strength of his party in
York state. "Anything to beat
Quite an interest was recently
excited in England in that delec
table wilderness known, to geo
graphers as Manitoba. It" was
represented as a paradise for the
British farmer, and many projects
for colonies were started. Even
so level-headed a man as the Earl
of Dunraven recommended emi
gration to Manitoba as the best
practicable solution of the Irish
land problem. Now, it seems, a
change has come over the public
opinion. It has been found that
the climate there is a little eccen
tric given to freezing mercury
in a thermometer, and to furnish-

including the cabinet ministers,
but can nei titer see nor ltcar the
speaker. These sixteen chairs arc
immediately behind the gilded ec
clesiastical lattice-work which pre
vents our being seen from the floor
of the house. Is it not a remnant
of barbarism to suppose that women
sltould not be seen in our ltouscs
of legislation? Behind these chairs
are sixteen others, the occupants
of which can hoar, but cannot sec,

Perhaps the view from our eyrie
is not the most favorable. Artemus
Ward sa3s that if you want to see
a woman at her best you must
look up at her; and it is no doubt
trving to a man to be looked down
upon. So, under the circumstances,
the members may not be seen at
their best. Perhaps that is why

All the powers of nature seem
to be at present combining against

in"- for the fertile fields blankets it will turn out against the British

Some of the advocates of the terri
tory have also found out that the
Northern Pacific has designs on
the fanner and will multch him of
a large share of his profits in ex
cessive freight charges. Archi
bald Forbes is headed toward
Manitoba on a lecturing tour. If
he ever reaches the place he will
probably put the finishing touch
to the fictions about this Arcada
for the English agriculturist.
New York state will be forced
to wait some time longer for cheap
and uniform railroad'rates. A bill
has been killed in Albany which
provided that fares on all railroads
in the state be limitc 1 to two cents
a mile. Yai derbilt and .Tcwett
were largely instrumental in
strangling this measure, for their
own personal protection.
New York buildings are now In
vadincr the clouds. Seven stories
at present form the minimum, and
the large oftices and flats frequent
ly reach ten stories. One ol the
best results of modern architectur--
al science is seen in the improved
tenement-houses which are being
erected on the east side of Man
hattan island. It has been proved
that commodious buildings, with
ample light and air, may be built
at a moderate cost; and there is
every prospect that a very few
years will see the demolition of the
huge structures which now add so J
largely to the great city s mortal
ity records. The sewage has not
been correspondingly improved.
The only quarter of the globe
from which any competition with
the American meat supply u
Europe could be expected to come
is Australia. With the vast flocks
and herds of tin gmxing country,
the material to be shipped could
never be lacking, in all abundance;
the only obstacle has been the dis
tance of the passage by sea. To
obviate this, the enterprise of
freezing meat for Europe has been
entered upon. It will be remem
bered that experiments have al
ready been made with the Protos,
in the possibility of fitting up a
vessel with such refrigerating ap
paratus as to carry the frozen meat
in good condition, and that the
experiments were considered to
betoken a good promise of success.
It is now announced that at a re
cent meeting at Melbourne of the
Australian Frozen Meat company,
a report was presented stating that
the company was resolved to prose
cute the undertaking. The ar
rangements for refrigerating were
acting admirably, and the shipment
was not expected to result in a
loss. It was intended to put up a
machine five times the power and
capable of freezing 2,500 sheep.
The cost of fitting up the Protos
had been about 5,000. The
Australian method may be of use
to our own export trade: Lufrthus
far there seems to be no need of
any other way than the transporta
tion of live cattle.
"land-laws. The last blow has
fallen on sheep owners, in the
shape of a perfect pestilence of
sheep-rot. In Leicestershire there
is said to be hardly any animal un
affected, even in the best cared
for flocks. Hundreds of sheep die
weekly. The disease has invaded
the uplands also, and the farmers
have lost out of small and .well fed
flocks as nianv as 150 and 200 cws
in a 'few weeks. This calamity can
not but make the agricultural dis
tress a still more pressing question
to the government.
