PBICE-TWO C!E|Jii EVENING EXPRESS KIXMjOIS BBUTUeiCS - PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Wsatber observers say a cool, moist summer must follow the late peculiar winter. TirE statement haa baen pab'.iehod that all cuutnuratora were required lu give bond. Ntw�i of the enumeratora to be np-pointed hnvo t;i give bonds'. Tats Prohibition uaity in Puonsylvauta is making preparations to bold a State C onvontion Tor the ;�urpo.*e of nominating  ticket fur Governor, I/icutaaant Governor and Secretary ot International Affairs. RuJjeht J. Code, business manager of the Philadelphia, Prat baa made an arrangement with the Oirard estate to erect a large building at the northeast corner, of Twellth and Chestnut streets and leaae the same to tbe Prat oompan j for a period of twenty yeara at a rental equivalent to tbe interest on the money invested at 5 per cent. Calvin Welle bas notified a firm of architects in Philadelphia to prepare preliminary drawings. Acting upon the information furnished by the Department of Justice, Secretary Windom baa decided that Chinamen smuggled into the United States over tbe Canadian border shall be returned to China at the expense of the United States. This seams to be the cheapest and most direct method of disposing of suob oases; but it is not oalcnlated to improve tbe feeling wbioh with reason exislB In China towsrd Ibis country. There will be a Sanitary Convention held in NorriBtown on May 9th and 10th, nnder tbe auspices' of the State Board of Eealtb, at which some very prominent Pennsylvanians will be presenr to read papers. A convention of this kind ought to do a great deal of good, but unless something more practical than reading papers la done, we feur it will not. Tbe fact is Pennsylvania is sadly deficient in atnitary lawe, and there is no authority outside of the State Board of Health to enforce the few laws we have. There ought to be a local Board of Health in every town. There �ill prubjbly be no con'.est in tbe Republican StatB Convention over tbe nomination of a candidate for Secretary of Intern i' Affairs. Cue or two Itepubliosna who announced that tbBy would g>) before tbe convention for this plaoo on the ticket bave withdrawn from tbe field, which is now left clear to Colonel Thomas J. Btewart, the present occupant of the office. He has administered it with credit, and will probably be renominated unanimously, not only as a compliment to himself, but as a recognition of the Grand Army of the Republic; in which be has long been popular. Th� <3ov�rnaralilp. Mr. Editor:-A County Convention bas been called to elect a delegate to the Republican State Convention, whioh will nominate our oandidate for Governor. An effort is bein^ made by the Chairman of our County Committee, and a few other persons, to elect .t delegate to represent this county i�i that cor.veution, who is favorable, to a-,d will vote irr tbe nomination of Mr. Dclanutor, and this, notwithstanding tbe fact that General Hastings, who is also a candidate for the nomination, was born and ruUad in this county, and baa a large number of personal friends residing here. In view of this, I think it but right, that tbe Republicans of this county should hive it brought to tbeir mind that, within six weeks, Senator Lewis Emery, uf McKuc county, who was a Republican member of the Legislature of Pennsylvania from 1879 to 18SS, In a public speech, charged Geo. W. Delama-ter-who was a Scnitor with him from 1886 to 1888-with bribcrg, perjury and forgery, and dared him tu deny tbe charges wr \.n \wriy�eev,u, bim for libel. Several weeks after thu charges were made the Pmlude!phu Prett, tho leading Republican p.iper of the stitr, called upon Mr. Dolamater to answer these charges, either by c'euial or explanation. Other Republican newspapers bave followed tbe lead of The Prat, in demanding from Mr. Delamater some answer to these charges, bat up to ibis time nothing bas been beard from him. I much mistake the Republicans of Clinton county if tbey can be induced to endorse, for the nomination for Governor, a man against whom such serious charges have been made; who does not promptly repute tbein, and take measures to punish those who give currency to suob libels, it libels tbey are, when uttered by so responsible and prominent a person as Senator Emery.

Latest Beports From the Hooded - Regions Present a Gloomy Outlook. Ttattt IS FALLING IK TORRENTS. West Melville Entirely Snrroonded by Water, Which. Is Km Within Two Inches of the Top of the Levoa-A Courier la a BkUT Brings Wows of tho Loss of Lib at Point* Coepee-Watare Blslng. West Melville, La., April 27.-Every thing looks gloomy. There ia now one to six feet of water in onr (own limits, and not a sign of land anywhere except a small atrip of levee on the front. The water is now .within two Inches of the top of the levee, and no more material obtainable, the earth hereabouts being covered with wale-. It bas been raining torrents all day, and both tbe river and back water are rising. gloomy cohditioh of affairs. Batos Rouge, April 27.-J. M. Ferguson arrived here last night from the rear of Point Coupee Pariah. He came in a skiff, and brought with him some bouse bold effects. He substantiated the rumor of loss of life in tbe back country, and states that at a point between Morgansea and Labelle a family of five negroes darned Watson was swept out of existence. On bis way out he ran across the drowned body of a negro who was unknown to him. Hundreds of drowsed atook was psssed, and'Ferguson said that the suffer ing is terrible in tbe interior. Baton Rouge is full of refugees. Many of them are securing homes in bills while others are waiting the falling of the waters. the broken levers. Captain Kingman arrived here yesterday morning from Horganza. In an interview concerning the crevasses above, Cap tain Kingman said that the crevasses from tbe Pointe Conpee line begin at Iowa Point, aronnd Raoacine, in the vicinity of Old River. This break was a small one-comparatively epeaking, and the damage could not be very severe. From Hew Texas down to Waterloo tbe wholecountry is under water. At New Texas tbe river fell five inches, showing that the Raoacine crevasse eould not play an important part. Tu speaking of tbe Horganza broak, Captain Kingman said that it was oaused by water washing over the top, carrying off sacks of earth and lumber with whiob the old levee bad been raised. The levee as originally constroeted was well proportioned, bat within three years the levee was rsised by the State eighteen inches by putting earth on top ot it This made tbe crown narrow and the upper part of tbe levee thin. It was too low for the present water, and bad to be raised twice, and an attempt was being made to raise it a third time op to Monday night. At the time the levee broke only a guard was present. Tbe break was 60 feet wide at tbe first oraBb. The rash of waters drove the guard away, and the break soon widened into a orevassse 300 feet widB. In the morning when he saw it the break was 500 feet, and tbe escape of water 90,000 onbio feet a second, and tbe velocity terrific. saving the orabd levee There seems to be a chanoe of saving a conaiderabu portion of the Grand Levee by properly plaoing mattresses. Captain Kingman telegraphed to New Orleans for a barge load of rocks, and started a force cutting willows to fill the mattresses, to prevent caving. The rocks arrived yesterday, and to-day this force is engaged in building the mattress. It will be- 150 feet long and 50 wide. It will be loaded with 100 tons of rocks, secured in doable saokB tied to the mattress. It will be made flexible, and will be placed near tbe end of tbe break as soon aa possible. The mattress will rest on the river slope of the Isvee, and extend outward from the bastion, and it is expected that when the caving reaches the mattress that it will bend around the end of tbe opening, and thus protect the ear'h from tbe aotioo of the water. '  a great financial CALlMITT. New Orleans, April 27.-Secretary Heater, of the Cotton Exchange, received a dispatch from Norman Bell, Secretary of the Norfolk (Va.) Cotton Exchange, saying: "Oar members are very ablialtous about New Orleans." Mr. Hester replied: "Tour dispatch indicates that the situation, as regards New Orleans, has been absurdly exaggerated. - There is not now, nor is there likely to be, the slightest danger to New Orleans from high water in the Mississippi river. To quote a statement just made by a member of tbe State Board of Engineers, 'The city is as safe as if it were on a high hill.'" Stories of suffering and danger of loss of life in this oveifiowed disuiot aro, to say the least, premature. Thata financial calamity has fallen upon a splendid section of Louisana Is, unfortunately, too true, but an attempt to color It with tragedy la j manifestly absurd. Thus far some atook baa boon drowned, and.it id impossible to say bow seiions tbe luia of stuck may be ill tbe iuterior, but *veu now there are many wbo will not take tbe trouble to have tbeii stock removed, though they are absolutely sore to be overtaken by tbe rising back-water within tbe next few days. a up lb w abhwg o* daxgkr.

Xte oourse will lie largely through tbe Atobafrlaya, and all by this time ahbuid be prepared for any emergency This misfortune ia enough, but it is not a matter over which people have any cause to become hyBtericsL Tbe ourrent statement tbst there has been a general surrender along the line of defense is wholly erronons. Captain Kingman is working as hard as ever to bold what is le.lt of the levee, and the only portion of bis forces that have been withdrawn is made up of planters and settlers wbo have been driven by the oveiflow to turn tbeir attention to saving what tbey aan of tbeir property. TBI win 1h COSQBBSg. Outline off Business That WIU Coma tip la House and Senate This Weak. Washington, April 27.-The Senate tomorrow will resume consideration of tbe Land Grant Forfeiture bill with the expectation of coming to a vote upon it, before adjournment. After that will come np tbe Customs Administrative bill, and this will probably fill ont tbe remainder of the week. There is considerable opposition on tbe Democratic side us the measure as reported by tbe Committee on Finance, aad it Is announced tbat Senator Evarta baa an amendment to propose. Tbe Silver bill la tbe next measure of general ioterest on the order of business, and it will be taken np this week If any time remains. Although the Republican caucus of the Senate have not yet agreed upon all the details of tbe Silver bill, It is believed tbat tbe measure whioh they will all support will be prepared for consideration of tbe Senate by the time tbat body ia ready to entertain it. In the House tbe legislative appropriation is unfinished, and will probably, be passed soon after the session of the day begins. The Silver bill will follow, and two days will be allowed for its discussion. Carrying ont the oancna plan the Pension Committee is to be given a day for the consideration of the Service Penaion bill, and the Committee on Public Buildings is to bave tbe same privilege in order to dispose of the bills it haa reported. No time haa yet been allotted to the River and Harbor Appropriation bill, but aa there are a large number of members who desire to see that measure passed before tbe Tariff bill comes up, they may be able to succeed in having it considered daring the week. base   BALL RECORD.
