High Water In . Ohio - Is Doing; Much
: - Damage.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Feb. 23, The out
look for the Ohio river flood grows worse
today. ' In addition to the rise at Pitts
burg this morning the weather reports
show there is almost a certainty of addi
tional rain throughout" the Ohio : valley
within twenty-four hours. There seems
some hope in the fact that the river is
falling rapidly, at Wheeling and at Park-
ersburg and 'also that the headwaters of
the Great Kahawaha are falling. :'
' The effect of the flood here at this stage
is inconvenient but not disastrous.
The lower portions of Newport and
Covington, arc submerged. , .but. none I of
the large maiiufacturies are as yet inter
fered witn. ' ., ' -
The waterworks at Portsmouth - are
stopped by the "overflow while Parkers-
burtr has lost its ea$ and Water and is in
danger of a coal famine. -. " ' '
At 1 o'clock this afternoon the river
stood at fifty rfive .feet ' five inches and
rising "at the1 rate of an inch an.-1 hour.
Reports from up and down the' river
show many towns flooded- : ,.:-; ,-
Father Inte'rveivru With Prominent San
' V ' . Francisco Merchants.
San Fkancis.co, Feb..: 22. Merchants
and men of influence here are much in
terested in the Hawaiian cable proceed
ings. . Several of them interviewed today
Captain William .Merry: "The
Hawaiian and Australian cable will be
of great benefit to the . United States,
and especially so to San Francisco. The
projected connection with the FaraUone
islands is a minor atvantage, increasing
its usefulness. Honolulu will become a
port of call and a coaling station when
ed, and this will make- the cable ..still
more . valuable.' '
Adolph Spreckles:' 'The United
States should control any cable that may
be laid to the - Hawaiian- islands. - Our
commercial interest in the islands alone
warrant this. If any foreign., power
should lav a cable . to the islands they
would simply derive their revenue from
leving a toll upon American commerce."
D. A. McKmley, Hawaiian consul :
"The island wants a cable and we think
you ought to want it stil more. We are
willing to give a liberal subsidy, and the
American government should not be
backward in aiding in every way an en
terprise that affects her in so many
Frank Jaynes, superintendent of the
Western. Union Telegraph Company:
I consider the plan entirely . feasible,'
but I do not think it will pay the pro
jectors. ; As to the benefit we will. derive
throughout the country there is no ques
tion. The advantages seem only xoo ap
parent. The importance from a political
veiw is even greater tnan from the com
mercial standpoint;'' unaouDtiy ine
government should see to it that the ca
ble is laid and remain under American
control." i - . .
It Is so Termed by at "Director, of
California Athletic Club. ."'
San Fbancisco, Feb." 21. "What do
you think will be done at Monday night's
meeting of the board of directors?" was
asked by a reporter of Colonel McLaugh
lin, one of the directors of the California
Athletic Club, today. He replied :
I don't see what we can do but decide
the match a fake, for it surely was on La
Blanche's part; ; I thought that after ;a
man treats us in this way, by training
up tp the last moment and then going off '
and getting full, should be dealt with
awiiwMww. t I I.I Ml IF t IH ! Hill i iii.fcMre.v-
circles there is much anxiety as to what
decision will be given by the directors,
who have constituted themselves the
tribunal for that purpose. The pool men
and other stakeholders have not turned
over any money, contending that the con
tract signed by the men makes a referee's
decision invalid. The general feeling is
that Mitchell should be given the entire
purse and all bets be declared off.

Shoe Operatives Deeieved by Alluring
Promises .From -Venesneln.
Boston. Feb. 20. Jacob F.. GOS8," a
Lynn shoe worker," emploved as a mokay
stitcher, returned from Caraccas, Ven
ezuela, today, where be nas oeen locatea
since last December. He relates - this
story: , . . -" .. . - ' .v ' ' ' ''
'Iast December in response to an al
luring advertisement in a local paper for
skilled operatives to go wcomn America
to teach the native workmen the art of
producing .' foot wear "by machinery,
Goss entered into communication with
the agent of the firm of. Paul & , Co., of
Caraccas, a. Spanish concern, the -result
of which was that he signed a contract
to work for the firm one year at $25 per
week, and, with several other workmen
from Lynn and other New England shoe
centers', and five girls to be employed as
stitchers, he embarked for South
America. On their arrival " they found
that, thouirh the house of Paul & Co.
was a reliable - concern, ' the proposed I
shoe factory bad riot been completed,
and this necessitaed a delay of several
weeks, during which the workmen a ided
in the finishing of the building. They
had all signed contracts, but at the ex
piration of the first week they discovered
that what they recieved as compensation
for their labor was less thaii .-naif - that
stipulated in the cm tract, and they im
mediatelv remonstrated, but could se
cure no satisfaction from the firm. Asa
last resort thev visited the "American
consul,- and producing the cbn tracts
which they had signed, asked if they
could not be inforced. The consul's re-
aly was that the contracts " was - worth
ess. The workmen were without money,
the climate did not agree with them,
and they endured, .with the exception of
Goss, and are still enduring, great suf
fering. The natives treat them with
contempt, and their lot is a most un
happy one.r They are forced to remain
there, because they have not funds with
which to ; return. When Mr. Goss left
with the money sent him by friends, tle
factory was not- completed ana nis un-habnv-companions
were in- the-greatest
distress, being in absolute want, without
decent clothes, and living in; the neero

Dks Moines, Iowa, Feb. 21. Much
interest is felt here in the investigation
of the death of William Protzman, who
it is alleged died under the Christian
science treatment. Protzman was 24
Years old and had good health until
December 17, last, when he was attacked
with colic, which grew into typhoid
fever. The jury found he received no
medical treatment, except "silent
prayer," that dietary rules were disre-
crarded : and that he was otherwise
neglected. The conclusion of the jury i,
that Protzman came to his death by rea
son of practicing upon him of the teach
ing of the association of persons calling
themselves Christian scientists, and
from no other cause. The jury further
say in their opinion Protzman would .
have lived had proper treatment been
given him. It is expected arrests will .
be made later on.
Constrnetton 'Work Stopped by th
V Stormy. Weather. .
Tacoma, Feb. 21.- The stormy weather
of the past week has greatly retarded
railroad work in the northwest. The?
Northern Pacific construction work in.
this state has been brought almost to a
standstill. The partial suspension of
the work on the extensions to the South
Bend section and Ocosta has been made
compulsorv. The surveying parties of
the Great Northern who have been
working in eastern Washington have
practioallv suspended - work lor a few
days. The delay will not seriously affect
the work in other lecalities. Colonel
Heustis, whose firm has .charge' of the
Union Pacific work towards tne ocean
said today : that it is impossible to do
anything in the way of construction un
der the present circumstances. They
are doing a small amount of work so as
to prevent their workmen fromr scatter

What Watterson of the Conrier-.Toar-
... .... : s.. ; .- nal" Says. -- .-'
Xrw York: Feb. 21. The Herald's
Louisville correspondence telegraphed :
found Mr: Watterson in his omce in
the Courier-Journal building this after
noon, and asked' him- what- he; thought
of Mr. Cleveland's statement in regard
to his candidacy. " Mr-Watterson said:
"It is vet too eanv to spean very- posi
tively about the next democratic national
convention. The attitude of. the. demo
crats of the West and south toward the
free coinage of silver arid Mr. Cleveland s
letter - creates 'dissonance, - the end of
which ie not easy to see. : Again-' is the
fact that the New ' Yom democrats may
foree the party to leave ' New York out
altogether in the search for a candidate.
Mr. Cleveland's letter was brave and hon
est, hnt was inopportune. -' He could. I
think, have offered to yield the thing to
the kindly action 01 time, stanaing upon
his record. One thing, however, is cer
tain, and it Is the kev to the situation.
If the democratic party can be brought
to send a question like that of revenue
reform to -the rear, advancing in its
place the question like the free coinage
of silver to the first rank, it will be
beaten out of eight, and will richly
deserve to be beaten.

. . Sound.
San Francisco. Feb. 21. It is rumored
that the Merchant's Towboat Company's
tug Sea Lion is to be ordered to return
here from Puget sound. The statements
are made that the long runs without tow -and
low rates are factors that have caused
the Sea Lion to be very unprofitable 111
the work no north. " Although fuel" is
cheaper on Puget sound than at this port.
the distance a tug has to travel Deiore
she picks up a vessel, and the long tow
she has to make when employed, causes
a large consumption of coal. This expen
diture of coal is by no means compensated
for by the . rates of towage, and rather
than allow the tug to lose money she
will .return here for employment. .
