Awful Sia-ht That Met the Police When

Paris, June 8. The sensation of
the week has been the arrest of Mad

owner of the neighborhood of Poit
iers, and her son, a former prefect of
the Department of Vienna and a
leader of Poitier's society, on the
charge of incarcerating Mile Rlanche
Monnier, daughter of Madame Mon
nier, for twenty-five years, in a
room of Madame Monnier's house.
The police who were anonymously
notified cf the woman's detention.
entered the house and found Mile.
Monnier shut up in a room, in dark
ness, lying on a mattress, stark na
ked, and so emaciated that she ap
peared to be a living skeleton. The
room was covered with filth, bones,
re ruse looa, worms, rats and all
kinds of vermin. The unfortunate
woman, who had partially lost her
reason, was taken to a hospital. It
was thought she would die, but she
is now improving. Twenty-five
years ago she was a beautiful bru
nette and fell in love with a lawyer
without means. Her mother disap
proved of their love and confined
her in the room which she has only
recently lea. The son, after his ar
rest, pleaded that he acted as he did
on account of filial piety and that
the mother was responsible. The
lawyer died In 1885.
There was another dramatic de
velopment in the case to-day. Mad

was brought home to her at the

making a report on the recent flood,
was in tne city last Thursday.
in an Interview with an Observer
reporter Mr. Myers stated that he
had followed the Catawba from its
source in the Swannanoa Ga n in
Rock Hill, S. O. and had talked
with the residents who live along
the river for this distance. He ap
proximates the damage done by the
flood at $500,000. The damage along
me river siue nas Deen general and
in proportion to the acreage of bot
tom land. In Dracticallv all th
wheat fields close to the H
and has been sanded over for two
or three feet deep and the corn fields
have been completely washed away
down to an unproductive subsoil
The injury to farming land was
greatest in Rurke and McDowell
counties, said Mr. Myers, because in
these counties there is more bottom
and. In McDowell the damage is
about $100,000. and in Rurke it is
between $250,000 and $300,000. The
broad bottom lands in the latter
county are simply ruined for a dis
tance of three hundred yards on
either side of the Catawba.
The velocity of the water, said
Mr. Myers, was greater than ever
before. At Rock Hill the current
ran about ten miles an hour, which
is a terrific and hurtful pace for the
Catawba. And it is universallv ad:
mitted that during the recent flood
the river was much higher than
The hurtful effects of the velocity
of the water was not due to amount
of rain that feU. for the weather
bureau reports indicate that much
heavier rains have fallen in the past
and the volume of water was carried
off without injurious conseanence.
The whole seciet of the bad effect
and extent of the flood lies in the
deforestration in the western part of
the fctate Along the Linville river
and in aU parts of western Carolina
the country is being stripped of
trees, and this is followed by the
forest fires which sweep awav all
vegetation or undergrowth. When
the rains fall on such land there is
nothing to retard the current of the
water. With great force it strikes
the river, the velocity of the Ca
tawba is increased by the mad vio-
ence of the water and the current
develops a wonderful and dangerous
power. Every man who lives by
the river, said Mr. Myers, says,
without hesitation, that the cutting
away of the timber is entirely re
sponsible for the serious flood. "In
the future," said he, "the land along
the Catawba will be more at the
mercy of the river. The last freshet
tore off vegetation along the banks,
made new channels, or cut-offs, and
broke through all the elbows of the
river. So the farm land is much
more unprotected than formerly and
it is in the power of a comparatively
small freshet to do vast injury?"
"What Is the remedy?"
"There is no present remedy."
said Mr. Myers. "This flood sug
gests no warning to thrtimber men
n the western part of the state.
They are more active now than ever
before in the history of the state
and they are cutting down all the
trees they can reach. It is the truth
that as the matter stands there is
plain, though not recognized, war
fare between1 the timber men and
the farmers. The timber men are
making money, but are ruining the
farmers along the Catawba. This
question is most vital; but the peo
ple do not seem to understand or
appreciate the great danger that con
fronts them. The ultimate and ab
solutely necessary remedy will be a
measure that will prevent the wild
and wasteful cutting of timber. This,
together with the establishment of
the Appalachian Park, which wiU
preserve timber around the source
of the river, is the only hope."

Washington, June 5. The lead
ing member of the minority of the

House Congressman Livingston, t
Georgia sees danger ahead for the
South. He is not in favor of any
constitutional amendment for his
State in line with amendments on
the suffrage question which have
been adopted by Louisiana, Mississi
ppi, North and (South Carolina. He
seen danger In such amendments
which he thinks may In the future
result in the cutting down of the
congressional representation of States
"I think our people are against
such amendments to our state con
stitution," he said. "We are get
ting along nicely with the negro in
Georgia. The states which adopt
the amendments already adopted by
Louisiana, Mississippi, North and
South Carolina, may see the time
when Congress will take the matter
up with a view to affecting their
representation in Congress. As long
as Georgia is doing well we do not
care to run a risk of having our
representation cut down in the
United States Congress and the elec-
torial college. I was opposed to
giving the republicans the advant
ages we gave them at the last ses
sion in increasing their membership
in the House. We gave them an
increase of nine members when there
was no necessity for it, but we had
democrats who were so anxious to
get their own representation increas
ed that they were willing to let
them do as they wanted.
"The House was large enough.
Now, if they conclude their margin
not sufficient, and claim their
right to increase it by reducing the
representation of such states as
Louisiana, Mississippi, North and
South Carolina, it would bring tur
moil and strife and re-open the
issues of the civil war. For these
reasons I do not think it is best for
the Southern states to adopt such
constitutional amendments. I think
the Georgia election law remedies
the whole trouble complained of in
tha South. Any man can vote in
Georgia if he is not a felon and has
paid his taxes. The great majority
of the negroes have only a poll tax
to pay. A negro can refuse to pay
his poll tax of $1, and after he has
done so for twenty years he can vote
any time by paying it up. Rut
hundreds and hundreds of them
prefer to take care of the dollar to
voting. We have no educational
qualification. The number of negroes
in our state is not so large as it was
formerly. Very many of them are
moving away where agricultural
conditions are better than they are
in Georgia. The colored people in
the state are now in the proportion
of four to six."

The tendency of the appointive
power in our state government is to
give places to members of the legis
lature. This has been carried on to
such an extent that a laree per cent
of the memers of the last legislature
has been appointed to positions of
trust and honor. The common,
everyday people of the state are
criticising such an abuse of power,
as we have just right and cause to
do. The legislature created a laree
number of offices and then in turn
the Governor or board of directors
put in positions of honor and trust
those same legislators who made the
offices to which they are appointed.
Now, we have four new judicial dis
tricts to which judges and solicitors
are appointed by the Governor, and
three of the judges and three solici
tors are members of the leeislature
which created the new districts. J.

The legislature created that board
and the board "set up" an influential
member of the legislature which
created it. And thus it eoes until
it has reached a sickening point. It

Increases la the Naatber of Hooks
Anooaat of Deposit.
Official statislicH concerning the
Relgian Government savings bank,
sent to the State Department by Mr.
George W. Roosevelt, the American
Consul at Rrusbels, show that on De
cember 31st, 1900, the number of
books was 1,762,434, against 1,647,
263 in the previous year, and the
amount of deposits was $127.428..
143.38, an increase during the year
of $7,200,144. The capitalized In-
terest amounted to $3,462,840.43,
which added to the amount repre
sented in depositors' books, made a
grand total of $130,890,983.82, be
longing almost exclusively to the
working class. Owing to the Indus
trial prosperity throughout Relglum
during the past two years, there was
noticeable increase in deposits; but
during the last six months, on ac
count of the strike among tne glass
workers in the Charleroi district,
there has been a falling off.
Statistics also show that the In
habitants of the province of Hal
naut are the most thrifty and sav
ing in Relgium, as their deposits in
the postofhees alone during the year
just ended amounted to $1,630,963.
