The room assigned to Georgia was the draw ing room of the White House jf the Confederacy, and is one of the aiost beautiful in the Mansion. In this room was held the reception given to 'apt, William '(Jrillin Waller and his hride, who was the sister of President lavis. Tho sword presented to Capt. Waller ui on this occasion by President I avis is now in this room, loaned by bis dauirhter, Miss Elizabeth Tyler Waller. i 'r. Everard Do Renue bequeathed to the (Jeorgia room tho very valuable and jxtensive collection of books, papers, pictures, and all manner of relics accu mulated by his mother, Mrs. Mary De lleuue, a native of Savannah, and a most devoted Confederate. The books nlone in this remarkable collection number over 300, some of them of grept. rarity and historic interest. They lemonstrate, many of them, by the lingy hue of the paper and the dis tinctiveness of tho print, and further by tho binding, (in pome instances wall paper) the dire straits of the South in the want of material and appliances. One interesting feature of this ?ollection is tho largo number of mtograph letters, somo from Presi lent I 'avis, his Cabinet, the Con federate (Jenerals aud ninny prominent nen ot that tune. 1 liree large cases have already been tilled from this col lection, und there are yet many articles in packed. A fourth case, much larger than tho others, contaiss the relics winch have been sent from (Jeorgia Separate oases will be assigned to each uty as soon as tho number of relics makes it necessary. A few must be mentioned to show the unwavering love, the patient toil, and the faithfulness Dveu unto death of those who lived in those sorrowful days. From Savannah jollies the miniature of Capt. Edward Kiehardson Cheves, of the staff of (ien. A. 11.

A pair of trousers worn by Sergt. John W. Eester, woven from cow's hair by his mother, and the shut tle with which they were woven, comes from Americus. Amongst the portraits hv the side of her brothers, (Jens. How ell and T. R. If. Cobb, hangs one of .Mrs. Mary Cobb Johnson, of Atlanta. This heron; woman personally supenn tended the exhuming and giving Chris tian burial to ;!,tHio unknown Confeder ate soldiers. ''This that she has done shall be told as a memorial of her." Work of a Cyclone. A special to the Evening Constitution A Monday from Arlington, Oa. , says: V cyclone struck this town and has left behind it a trail of death and disaster. 1 he high school building was blown to pieces and from the wreck nearly a huu lied people dead, dviug and injured have already been taken out. Rlakely, (Ja , was struck dy a severe torm also which did enormous damage and io-t several lives. The chaos : ansod by the storm is still present, and during tho confusion nothing can be letinitcly learned as to the amount of harm done or the number of lives lost, .t is know n, however, that several are ii i1 led and many more so severely in Itired that they will probably die. A special from Washington, Ind. , ays: A small cyclone struck this coun iry at 4 o'clock." The north wall of the -wan 1 ond school building was torn ant and the stone cross on St. Simon's chun-V steeple was blown off and bro ken. any trees were uprooted and windows broken. At Wheatland, Ind., at an early hour a cyclone passed over the town doing much damage. Many houses were un roofed and trees and fences destroyed. r- o) wr.s seriously injured. No Action at l'resent. The declaration of a blockade of the island of Crete by the allied powers has raised a serious question of interna tional law and it is said that the stop ping of a vessel of another nation going to ( veto would amount to an act of war agtiitist that nation; all Americans in ininldn are anxiously awaiting Secre tin v Sherman's rerly to the notice of the I lockade which has been le sent to . i:r fovpiimieut. The United States wdl take no action at present regarding th Cretan blockade. Secretary Sher man says le will fimrly acknowledge the levcipt of the notes irom tne repre ...ntiitivfs in Washington, of the pow- tis,' which were delivered to him Monday. HARD BLOW AT RAILROADS. Supreme Court Decision May Cause a IJig Rate War. Within a week it is expected by high railroad officials that not one of the or ganizations having jurisdiction over passenger and freight rates will be in existence in this country, as a result of the plain decision of the United States Supreme Court that all associations which have for their purpose the main tenance of agreed rates and the division pf traffic are illegal. The oldest organi zations of this character must go to pieces. In fact the work of disintegra tion has begun, the legal advisers of the great railroads being quick to grasp the hopelessness of the situation, so far as continued membership in these associa tions was concerned. General Solicitor Keuna, of the Santa Fe system, advised the traffic manager of that road to with draw immediately from all freight as sociations of which it has been a mem ber. On reliable authority it was stated that the following important, lines have also decided to give notice of withdraw al: The Wisconsin Central, St. Louis and Kan Francisco, the Minneapolis and St. Louis and the Chicago Great Western. The peremptory action of all these companies means the certain disruption of the following associations and com mittees: Western Freight Association, I'rans-Continentiil Psssenger Associa tion, Southwestern Traffic Association, Trans-Missouri Association, Southwest ern Passenger Committee, Mississippi Valley Freight Committee, St. Paul and Minneapolis Rate Associa tion, Colorado Freight Association, the Local Passenger Association of St. Louis, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Den ver and ( hicairo, Local Freight Agents Association of Chicago, St. Louis Asso ciation of General Passenger Agents, Chicago and St. Louia Traffic Associa tion, Western Classification Committee and Minneapolis Central Freight Asso ciation. 'I he concensus of opinion is that a period of widespread and disastrous rate disturbance is at hand, because each road can now do as it pleases, and cut rates, openly and secretly, regard less of the interstate commerce law. Railroad men and shippers agree that such conditions will work injury to the general public, giving big shippers and merchants who get lowest rates an ad vantage over competitors. Wreck on the Southern. Tassenger trein No. 11, on the South ern Railway, was wrecked near Blacks burg, S. C. , Wednesday afternoon. The train consisted of engine No. 2SB, mail and baggage cars, one second-class coach one lirst-class coach and one deadhead sleeper, "Hazelmere." The engine, mail and baggage cars stopped entirely clear of the main line, all right side up, except the tank and en gine. Tho list of injured were: En gineer Chatham, bruises on hand, head and foot; Fireman Hulsey, hurt on an kle and hands; Flagman Chapman, leg hurt; Robert Mansfield, postal clerk, injured on arm and chest. The dam age to the train was slight. The cause of the accident has not been ascer tained. Town Completely Under Water. The town of Elba, on Pea river, in Coffee county, Alabama, is completely covered with water. It is six feet deep in the public square, and flowing through every business house in town. Geneva, at tho junction of Pea and Choctawatchie rivers, is in almost the same condition. Every bridge in Cof fee county has been swept away. There is much suffering throughout the flood territory. Twelve bridges have been washed away in Parbour county and much damage done to farming in terests. Merlin's Centenary Ceremonies. In the celebration attending the cen tenary ceremonies of Kaiser Wilhelm T, Emperor of Germany, Tuesday it is estimated that upwards of 20,000 per sons marched in the procession, which was of the most gorgeous description. Many of the historic costumes worn by the paraders were of costly material ana ornamentation and of artistic design. Prince Bismarck has beri the recipient of almost countless telegraphic, written and verbal congratulations in connec tion with the centenary of the Emperor. Fatal Collision at Aiigustn. An open switch caused a head-end collision between two trains on the South Carolina & Georgia Railroad just across tho river from Augusta Wednes day afternoon, which J. T. Ewing, fireman on the accommodation, was killed. Tho passengers were badly shaken up, but no other serious damage was done. The Aiken accommodation, coming to Augusta, ran into a siding, colliding with a shifting engine at tached to a train of freight cars. ABOTT "TO BREAK DOWX. OBlce-Seekers Are Plaeins Too Great a Strain Upon McKinley. President McKinley is show ing the effect of the pressure upon him for of fice. He arlves to each visitor a courte ous hearing, but the tax on his vitality is very severe. 1 he olhee-6eekers are at the" White House w hen the doors are opened in the morning and they remain in evidence until the 1 resident is com pelled, through sheer fatigue, to seek the seclusion of his private apartments. I'he warm weather of the past few days has added to his discomfort and it has been suggested that he spend an occa sional day in rest at the seashore, or in the country near the city. The Presi dent insists upon staying at his desk as iong as his strength will permit. His friends believe that if be does not take a brief outing he will break down from overwork. They maintain that he has been nnder a terrific strain since his nomination last June, and that it is not in human nature to continue it indefi nitely. Another Texas Failure. At Paris, Tex., Wednesday morning, John Dixon filed a deed of trust, cov ering Lis 6tock of clothing, etc., to 0. C. Connor, to the amount of $o2,100. A large portion of it is borrowed money, due to the Farmers and Merchants' Bank, and local capitalists and whole sale merchants iu other cities. The failure was caused by the closing of the Farmers and Merchants' Bank. Munitions of War. The Petersburg (Va.)

A second disaster, that of floods, is now upou the country. The rivers and creeks are swelling with the rainfall, which almost resembled a cloudburst in its copiousness. Cn both sides of the Chattahoochee, south of this, the fields are overflowed, destroying all the winter's work of preparation, carrying away cabins and stock. News has been received of the drowning of a family of eight members on the Alabama side of the river, in Henry couuty. Richard Manson, with his wife and six children, lived on the river bank, and at the crossing of the Central railroad from Columbus. The waters rushed in and befor they could escape all were lost. CIVIL SERVKK HOLDS. Lonj; Makes a Sound Ruling In the Public Interest. Secretary John D. Long, of the Navy Department, has made an emphatic an swer to congressional delegations from New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia ant California, who have been requesting bim for the past twoweeksto "letdown the bars" at the Brooklyn, League Is land, Norfolk and Mare Island navy yards, so as to admit party workers into them irrespective of merit qualifica tions. It has been alleged that in car rying into effect the civil service regit lations favoritism was shown to Demo crats. Mr. Long replies that when the system of employing mechanics and la borers upon merit first went into effect itjwas reasonable to suppose that those who were to administer the regulations would make some mistakes, but "favrr itism wiil not be allowel." Then he adds these explicit instructions: rt is in tho intention of tho department to enforce fairly aud justly the regulations as promulgated, and to disarm unjust criticipn it is necessary that the atten tion of each official at tho yard under your command be called to what is expected of him, as to the certainty of punishment of any person er trusted with the enforcement of the labor regu lations who violates them, or fails, through carelessness or negligence to perform the duties expected and ro quired of him. ' The department desires you to per sonally communicate to officials at the yard under your command its views as expressed above. " THE PURCHASE OE CUBA Reins Considered by the American iiovrrnmeut and Spanish Minister. It is declared at Havanna in Spaninh circles, upon the strength of private dispatches received from the United States, that the administration at Washington is planning in co-operation with the Spanish Minister, i-enor De lome, somo solution of the Cuban prob lem. The news is that the plan which is being considered by the American gov ernment and the Spanish Minister is the old scheme of ending the war in Cuba by an indemnity to be paid by the island to Spain in exchange for tho rec ognition of its independence. it is added that in the opinion of some persons well acquainted in Wash ington with the Spanish Minister, Spain, under the Government of Senor ( anovas, is inclined to oiler more liber al home rule to Cuba than that con tained in the last decree of reforms, in stead of accepting the plan of indemni ty, which means the sale of the island. THE RAGIN; MISSISSIPPI. Lives Lost, Stock Drowned, the Country Desolated Worst Is Not Over. A special from St. Lon'?, Mo., under late of the 20th, Fays: Tho earning lent out by tho Government signal ser iice on the l;dh that the Mississippi Kiver and its tributaries would con tinue to rise has been i ulniied to the letter. The communication with the dooded section has become difficult, but dispatches received from widely separated points show that all have suffered alike. It is estimated that a section of country with an area equal to that of the State of Missouri ia now mder water, and that the worst is not aver. Advices from Cairo. 1'adacah, Memphis and Helena show that the reg'on begiuuing North of Xew Madrid, . o., west to ami including the valleys jf the St. Francis, the N hite and the u kansaa rivers in Arkansas, cast in entucky and Tennesste, the valleys of :he Tennessee, tho Cache, the Obion nd the Yazoo rivers, and south to the ued river are under water. The inter vening ranges of hills and high ground ue the only places of refuge. 'I he dis patches received here tell but one story - iives lost, stock drowned and country lesolated. At Cairo, Illinois, the river -ea -hed f.O.'.i feet and rising 6lowly, Lich is but one foot short of the high record of 1 SS5. All the country south if there to Memphis is submerged. A relief steamer from the fiats below Bird's l'oint brought in four families. ;t is reported that a flat boat contain ng a number of people was sunk at Is aud No. 10. All the cotton fields in the valley of Forked Deer River in Tennessee, are mder water, lhe Memphis Relief As jociation has five boats at work.

A QUICK HEARING Will Be Had of Appeal In Traffic As sociation Case. Attorney-General McKenna has di rected District Attorney McFarlane at New York to take an appeal from the decision of the circuit court of appeals, delivered at New York last Friday, in favor of the Joint Traffic Association, composed of Eastern trunk lines. This case is closely allied to that of the lrans-Missouri freight association, in w hich the United States Supreme Court last Monday held that the anti-trust law was constitutional. The same questions aro involved as in the Trans-Missouri case with the addition that the Joint 1 raffle Association is charged with vio lation of the anti-iooling clause of the inter-state commerce act. The circuit court of appeals held that the United States had no right to go into court in an attempt to dissolve the association under either the anti-trust or inter-state commerce acs. It is contended at the department of justice that even the dis senting opinion of the Supreme Court did not sustain points sustained by the circuit court of appeals. When the papers in tho appeal arrive the Attoruej--(Jeneral will ask the Supreme court to advance the case so that it may be heard at the present term. Another Road Draws Out. The St. Louis and San Francisco rail road Thursday gave notice of with drawal from all the traffic associations, both freight and passenger, in the West and Southw est. This "action is taken on account of the Supreme Court decis ion on Tuesday decluring the Trans Missouri Traffic Association to be il legal. So far no action has been taken by any of the car service associa tions. News of the Flood. Another break in the levee at Fifteen Mile Bayou, nine miles below Modoc, Ark., is reported. It is now over live hundred feet in width and hourly in creasing. Assistant United States En gineer Notty states that in his opinion all the White river levee system, from 'oloc south, will eventually go to pieces. i Kansas City, Mo., the Missouri river is w ithin 2 feet of the danger liue and the indications are that it will go at least one foot higher. The bottom at the mouth of the Kaw river is over flowed and tho squatters have been compelled to take refuge on the bluffs. The Relt Line Hailway tracks are un der water in places and serious trouble is feared. The Armour 1'acking Com pany has a large force of men at work to guard against damage by the expect ed overflow. Several more breaks in the levee at Bird's ioint have occurred and a cur rent of water as strong as a mill race is rushing through the center of that vil lage. Already a dozen houses have been swept from their foundations and it now looks as if there will not be a building left in the place. Fortunately the dwellers had ample warning and removed most of their household goods and merchandise. With one exception, the bridge.over the Flint river, at Albany, (la., there is not a public bridge left in the county. The iron bridge across the Kinchee foonee creek, recently built jo:ntly by Doughty aud Lee counties and costing " i was swept away without a vestige being left. Huckct Shops Win. Judge Norton, of the circuit court, has overruled the motion of the board of trade of Chicago, the Western Union Telegraph Company, tho Gold and Stock Telegraph Company and the Pos tal 1 elegraph Company to dissolve the temiHJiary injunctions, restraining these parties from detaching telegraph wires from lhe place of busines of Har ry E. Wyly and the W. A. Michel Com mission Company et al., and from re moving "tickers" and from cutting off or in any wise interfering with "the supply of information as has been here tofore supplied." in concluding his decision, the Judge suj-s: "The defendant telegraph com panies have been so long permitted to continue to transmit to the public the 'market news' and said telegraph com panies have been so long employed by the public so to do that said companies may new be considered as agents of the public for that purpose, recognized as such by the board of trade. " Free Silver Republicans. A new political party has been launched in Nebraska. It is composed of members who have heretofore affili ated with the Republicans, but last No vember voted for W. J. Bryan for Pres ident on the currency question alone. The convention which met in Lincoln was not largely attended. Chailes Wooster, a member of tho lower house of the Legislature, was made chair man. The present name Free Silver Republicans of Nebraska was retained. Judge I). D. Gregory, of Omaha, was made the Xebraska member of the Xa tional Committee and a State organiza tion was effected. Six Congressional district committeemen were also select ed and arrangements perfected for car rying on an active campaign. Contrary to expectations, Mr. Bryan was not present. Three Friends Seized. At Jacksonville, Fla., Thursday the steamer Threo Friends, which arrived in port Thursday, has again been seized by order of the United States Court, in accordance with the recent decision of the Supreme Court, in the libel cave pending against the boat. The bend was cancelled, after which a deputy marshal was placed in charge. The tug will be allowed to do towing on the river, pending a trial of the case against it. Birmingham's Big Cotton Mill.

The Senate indulged in ap almost one-sided denunciation of the civil service law and its administration. ( )nly one Senator, Lodge, defended the law, and the upshot of it all was that a motion was agreed to, without a divis ion, but amended so as to instruct the committee on civil service and retrench ment to inquire and rejort whether the civil service law should be continued, amended or repealed. Turpie (Dem ), of Indiana, made an argument in favor of a constitutional amendment to make United States Senators elected by the popular vote instead of by the State Legislatures. These bills were passed by the Senate: Directing the Secretary of War to furnish a thousand touts to shelter aud relieve the sufferers from the flood in tho Mississippi ri er; to amend the act repealing the timber cul ture laws.

At 3 p. m. the doors were re-opened and the unfin ished business, the bankruptcy bill, was taken up, the bill being read in ex ten -so. The reading of the bill occupied exactly one hour.
