LEVEES OR OUTLETS. How Can the Mississippi be Kept Within Banks? Are Levees or Outlets the Best Protection? The Senate Discusses the Merits of the Two Systems. Varying Opinions Expressed—Other Con gressional Proceedings—Commit tee Reports, Etc. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Washington, April 28.—1n the Senate today there was an extended discussion on the question of whether the levee system or the outlet system, or a com bination of the two, was best fitted to protect the people of the Lower Missis sippi valley from floods. Various opin ions were expressed. Reagan said his investigations had convinced him that the levee system was a failure, as it had proved in the Yellow river, China, where the bed of the river was raised, and devastating overflows, causing the loss of millions of lives, resulted. The outlet system was the true relief for the overflows of the Mississippi. Berry held that the levee was the only true system, and said nearly every en gineer who had anything to do wit...

2 WOOD OR IRON? How Shall the Court House Roof be Constructed? Shall It be Fire-proof, as is the Building ? - Is It Worth 84.2,000 to Make the Change? Interviews with the Big Tax-payers on This Important Question—Pro and Con. The Board of Supervisors have before them a question as to changing the roof of the new court house. As at present planned and contracted for, the roof is to be a wooden frame covered by slate shingles. The wood in this frame of the roof is the only ignitible material in the building, from the lowest footings of the basement walls to the chimney pots above the roof. The walls are stone or brick, the joists and girders are of iron or steel, the floors are slate. It is abso lutely a fire-proof structure until one reaches the frame-work of the roof. In this there is naturally a large amount of wood, as it must uphold a covering of slate shingles whose weight is very great. There is not much danger of fire getting into the roof if it is prop erly constructed withou...

The Pasadena Branch to be Commenced Soon—The Milford Extension and Other Notes of the Roads. Last fall the San Gabriel Valley Rapid Transit railroad built its line through the Arroyo de los Posas to Aliso street, and for a short period the people at Monrovia and other stations on the line were landed within a few hundred feet of the Aliso-street bridge and on a line of Btreet cars leading into the city. In December, when the rains came, the road was washed out clear from the Five-mile creek, about a mile this side of Ramona, to Aliso street, and there was scarcely a tie or a rail left aj}y place to tell where it had been located. The Southern Pacific railroad had con structed a fill across the Five-mile creek, near Alhambra, leaving only a culvert for the water to run through. This had answered successfully in prior years, but ...
