"!'Va, mere a notmng in tnat; notning
. whatever, it's all moonshine; why, no
body knew till last Saturday that I was
going to make that speech. No, I am
not a candidate for president, or vice;
president, or senator, or anything else,
I am not a candidate; that speech was
made with no reference to any such

Weaver will probably be the candidate,
and he is entitled to it." "Do you think
an out-and-out free-coinage man, with
that the main plank in a 'platform not
overburdened with' too many others',
could gain some electoral votes, and thus
throw the election into the house?" "In
the event of the-nomination of Harrison
by the republicans and Cleveland by the
democrats," the governor -responded
promptly and emphatically, "such a
man would carry the electoral votes of a
number of states and be elected, because
an ine south would vote lor nim in
preference to Cleveland."
"Well, governor, don't you Bee that
the Omaha convention, seeing' that in

in addition to all the other -states that

Tt caver or any otaer eantuaaie coma, is
likely to make you the nominee?" ,
"Oh, I don't know about that; that
speech will never be heard of outside of
Oregon. No," he repeated, "Weaver is
doing splendid work, and I think he
ought to be and will be the nominee." .
The governor expressed himself freelv
and fully as to his political position, but
did not care to be quoted 'further. He
believes his views on the coinage ques
tion are the true and right democracy ;
he has no political aspirations, but is
determined to stick to what he believes
to be sound democratic principles.

r: Salt Lake City. Mav 16. The first
section of the delegates to .the Presby
terian General Assembly in Portland,!
reached this city Saturday evening and
retained' their berths on. the train, but
took they- meals at : hotels, res
taurants, and " with" friend3 - in the
city, .leaving today for ; the ;weet.
During their stay here, the Mormon
heierarchy assigned the' famous taber
nacle to their use, and furnished a choir
of five hundred voices for the singing,
This is said to be-the first time the
building ever was offered for a noh-Mor
mon gathering. The delegates were on
their guard a little more than President
Eliot was," so as. to- avoid expression of
opinions that might ,be , criticised.
President Eliot proved that it will not
do to say too much-for, the Mormons.
Supper will be taken in Huntington, to
morrow night at 7 o'clock,--where the
second division, which laid .over in
Omaha yesterday, will overtake them
Early Wednesday morning, will find the
train in the Blue mountains of Oregon,
then, along the Columbia river, the
southern bank of which will be descended
from Umatilla, passing Celilo, where the
mighty river is set up on .edge and so
narrow that- one may easily throw a
stone across . it, and arriving at The
Dalles, where breakfast will be served at
7:30 a. m. By special arrangment,
steamers wili be provided on the upper
Columbia, and taken at 8 :30 a- m., and
the descent of the river occupy the day
until about 4 o'clock. " Such as desire
may remain in the cars and go on to
Portland, arriving at 12 m., Wednesday.
It is unnecessary to speak of the interest
which will attach to the descent of the
Columbia, through the chasm left or it
in the Cascades. Mount Jefferson and
Mount' Hood south of the-river, and
Mount Adams and Mount St. Helen
north of it, all snow-capped, the basal
tic cliffs along the shoie, and -the many
other scenic wonders of a river more
majestic than the far-famed Hudson,
will combine to make this an eventful
day. Concerning this trip Rev. Arthur
J. Brown, D. D., pastor of the-First
Presbyterian church of Portland, in
which the assembly is to meet, writes,
Your plan for the special tram out
here by-way of the Columbia river
scenerv impresses me most favorably."
Mr. W. S. Mason, mayor of the city of
Portland and chairman of the general
assembly excursion committee, and Mr.
A. A. Morse, secretary of the committee,
say "without hesitation that the route
down the Columbia river would be ad
visable, and I know , that your people
will think it the trip of their life-time,
from The Dalles."

Kansas City, May 13. Additional
news of the damage of the flood is com
ing in.-'. The Grand river is twenty miles
wide at its mouth. Nearly all of .Saline
county is under water. Fences are car
ried away and railroads are washed out:
At Arrow Bock,' 100 miles south of here,
several houses were washed away. The
family of Peter Embry, numbering five,
are missing, and it is believed all are
drowned. James Galvin, a railroad
boss, was drowned last night. . Heavy
rain has been falling all over- the Mis
souri valley for the last twenty-four
hours, and shows no sign - of cessation.
TheMissouri river is nearly a foot above
the danger line. Owing to a rain storm,
amounting almost to a deluge, yesterday
on the river above, it is expected that
the water will continue to rise for, some
time. Harlem, a small town across the
river, is flooded, but its inhabitants are
all prepared. Many establishments in
Kansas City are - flooded,- and . were
obliged to suspend business. In Law
rence, a heavy rain has been falling for
the past .twenty-four hours. The Kaw
river continues to rise, and the city is
almost flooded.'- The water is too high
to run water wheels, and the factories
are shut down. The Union Pacific
freight depot is in danger of being. nn-J
dermined and thrown, into the river.
If an expected further rise of six feet
occurs, the northern portion of the city
will-be flooded. . - : k

on the canal at the river Chagres, for
which judgment was obtained in Paris in
March, 1890. The attachment was serv
