LEVEE QIVES WAY IN IOWA.
Crops on Thousands of Acres About Keo
kuk are Ruined.
St. Louis, June 4. A special to the
Post-Dispatch from Keokuk, la., says
Six hundred square miles of rich
farming land along the Mississippi
south of here is under water. The
Egyptian levee broke during the night
In two places, and there are now more
than 20 brakes in it. This levee runs
from the Mississippi at Alexandria to
the Bluffs, and protects the town and
shore as far south at Hannibal from
overflow of the Des Moines. A strip
of country ten miles wide and sixty
miles long is now under water, and the
crops, which, never looked better, will
be a total loss. Much of the land over
flowed has not been flooded for 33
years. The loss will reach $1,000,000.
The tnwn of Alexandria. Ia.. six
miles south of Keokuk, is entirely sutf
merged, and the people are living in
the second stories or making prepara
tions to move.
A strip 300 feet long and 25 feet
wide along the river front Is the only
land in the town that is not flooded.
This is covered with horses, cattle,
hogs, and people, with their house
hold belongings, and the problem of
transporting them is a serious one.
Grave fears are entertained for the
safety of the Hunt levee, which pro
tects the bottoms from Warsaw to
Quincy, on the Illinois side. Men are
at work on It, and 1t can stand a few
more inches of rise. The loss of live
stock will, prove very heavy.

sion here today, indorsed the se
lection of their three district pres
idents on the board of conciliation,
authorized by the strike commission,
and if these members are not recog
nized by the operators, the executive
boards will contemplate calling a con
vention of mine-workers to declare a
general suspension of work until their
members are given recognition.
In a statement tonight the district
nreaidents state that the operators
objected on the ground that the mine-
workers' representatives were ap
pointed by their organization as it ex
ists in each district. Anomer meev
in will be held tomorrow to decide
whether a suspension of work shall be

APPEAL OF OREQON.
Secretary of Interior From Land
General W. H. Odell, as attorney for
the State of Oregon, has appealed to
the Secretary of the Interior from the
decision of the Commissioner of the
General Land Office in the matter of
lieu land selections upon mineral base
In Southeastern Oregon. The Com
missioner had rejected the selections
of lieu land made by Mr. Odell for the
state, assigning as a reason therefor
that the state had already sold the
lands which It seeks to use as base.
Another reason assigned for the re
Jection was that the mineral character
of the land had not been proven.
The Commissioner also held that
the proceedings for1 the adjudication
of the mineral character of the land
were irregular for the reason that they
were commenced before application
had been made for the selection of the
Governor Chamberlain has written
a letter to the Secretary of the Inter
ior advising that official that General
Odell has authority to represent the
State of Oregon In this proceedine
and that It is his desire, as Chief Ex
ecutive, that the selections be ap
proved, so that sales made by the
state shall not be rendered null and
Klamath Lake Railroad Running.
Trains are running regularly on the
new Klamath Lake Railroad from
Laird, on the Southern Pacific, to Pak-
eKama, the temporary terminus in
Klamath county, and stages and freight
wagons are able to make their trips
in half the time they did when they
went to Ashland and Aser. Mall still
comes by stage from Ashland, but it
expected the government will soon
arrange to have it brought via the new
railroad, thus greatly improving the
service. Particularly in winter, when
mud and slush impeded travel, the
railroad will facilitate the carrying of
mall and gain the appreciation of peo
ple who hanker for letter and papers
before they become ancient history.
Jacksonville Box Factory. '
The machinery of the big plant and
box factory at Jacksonville has start
ed up and everything, as far as test

the latest and most approved. The
plant will employ about 25 to 40
bands. About 300,000 boxes will be
required to ship the fruit product from
Jackson county this year. It Is not
known whether this company will
supply the local trade. '

of July in the usual way, but will hold
street carnival from June 29 to July

NAVY WILL PUNISH.
Bremerton Navy Yard Will Oct No More
Ships for a Time.
wasmngton, June 3. "Until we
have some visible evidence that Brem
erton Intends to comply with our de
mands for an improvement in the sur
roundings of tire Puget Sound navy
yard, no more vessels will be ordered
there for repairs," said Assistant Sec
retary Darling today, after reading
the full report of Captain Bleeker.
Captain Bleeker states that a large
majority of the citizens of Bremer
ton are sincere in their desire to clear
the town of questionable resorts and
lo conform to the requirements of the
Navy Department, but Intimates that
there Is no way of closing up the sa
loons until their licenses expire.
There are now 15 saloons in the town,
six on Front Street, two, It Is said, op
erating without valid license. One sa
loonkeeper voluntarily went out of
business since December. Five li
censes will expire in September, and
other not until December. To allow
these saloons to run until that time Is
not satisfactory to the department.

Salem, June 2. Dinger Hermann, of
Douglas county, was yesterday elect
ed Representative in Congress from
the First Oregon District by approxi
mately 1800 plurality over A. E.
Reames, his democratic opponent.

cent short, and except in a few locall-
es very little Interest whs taken.
Hermann carried Benton, Coos, Cur

ane, Linn, Marlon, Tillamook, and

was successful in Clackamas, Jack
son, Josephine, and probably In Polk.
Yamhill county is in doubt, the vote
being practically a stand-off, and It
may take the official count to decide.
