THEICAUCASIA. Official Journal of the City of Shreveport. SUNDAY, IMARCH 29, 19o_3. THE BURDICK CASE. The inquest over the Burdick murder in Buffalo, N. Y., is at an end, but the mystery of the crime is still unsolved. "i he detectives and head of the. police cf Buffalo assumed that Burdick had been murdered by a woman, and on this theory they caused the arrest of a Can adian girl who had been in the employ of the Burdick home several weeks and wvio is handsome. It was an outrage, but the same detectives again blundered by shadowing every woman having ac quaintance with the Burdicks. It was not uritil they had theorized bewilder ingly that they abandoned the women and reached the conclusion that a man was the murderer. It appears that Bur dick, who was a millionaire envelope maker, and his wife did not live happily together. Mrs. Burdick had become enamored of Arthur Pennell, a lawyer of wealth and prominence, whose wife and Mrs. Burdick were great friends. In the course of time the...

FRACTKXILY_~ A TAN!U This Seems to Be the Flood Status al Crescent City. PROPER PROVISIONS. All the Necessary Arrangements Are Made to Take Care of the Ex cess lof Waters Expected Soon to Arrive. New Orleans, March 27.-With the river practically stationary Thursday there has been little change in the flood conditions. The early morning reading of the gauge was 20.2, a rise of one-tenth in twenty-four hours From morning to night the height of the river fluctuated, reaching 20.13 as a maximum. The phenomenal speed at which the current is flowing and fa vorable winds have doubtless restrain ed the upward tendency. Rises are re ported from Red river down. but with the present spell of dry and sunshiny weather confidence increases in the ability of the embankments on both sides sustain the strain upon them. A vigilant eye is being kept on every foot of levee from Red river landing to New Orleans. The local weather bureau again ad vises lrepapartion for a 21 foot stage at this point if th...
