New Yotik, May 27. The "World prints
from Hi-liinKton an interview which its
correspondent had with President Harri
son last evening. The president is quoted
as saying: -I do not believe that individ
ual disappointments will control the con
vention at Indianapolis. For myself I am
not, to use a homely expression, a youn;
robin with a widely open mouth, ready to
catch everything that comes. I have spent.
more than three very active years in the
discharge of my public duties, during
which period of time I have acted consci
entiously and solely out of reg;ird for i.iy
conception of the exigencies of the public
Likes Credit for His Own Work.
"Were I disposed to explain how many
disappointments and subsequent discon
tent have occurred during niv term the
narrative would be interesting. I do not
hesitate to say that certain things havi
happened that I feel deeply, especially
when anyone lias belittled some of th

ried out, or tried to plucethe credit upon

".Mr. i 'resident, the reporter askeil, "in
view of the recent publications do you
now announce your candidacy for re-election?"
The president replied with emphasis:
"I have never announced myself as a can
didnte, and I do not now. 1 did not in ss
on the occasion of the ( riicmo convention.
The convention nt Minneapolis will as
enible and take its own action. If the
people, having in consideration the man
ner in which 1 have conducted the presi
dency, desire me I presume they wiil sig
nify their wishes. Mennmhilel have not,
neither will I, proclaim my candidacy."

Wasiixictos, May 2". Cenernl John C
New, in an interview on the prt-.idi r.tia!
outlook, says that President Harrison is
in the race to stay and win and he will do
both. TIcf erring to the talk of opposition
to him Mr. New said: ""The opposition to
him can only grow out of personal griev
ances and disappointments of the n.en
who are now endeavoring to work it up.
Nor does this come of any sincere admira
tion of or love for the gentlemen whose
names with or without their consent are
being used to conjure with. With these
men it is anything to beat Harrison, but
they are no more likely to succeed with
this attempt than was tlie attempt to de
feat the renomination of Mr. Lincoln in
The "Thinking Millions" for Harrison.
"That will constitute Mr. Harrison's
strength at Minneapolis," was asked:
Mr. New said: "The great body of the
Republican party . The straight forward
thinking millions have settled down to
the conviction that President Harrison,
Laving kept the faith and proven himself i
in every respect worthy of and equal to
the duties of his great position, has de
served and should receive renomination and
re-election. Any attempt by the machine
or by political jugclery at this late day to
defeat their will would most certainly
meet with their deserved resentment."
General New left here last night for
Chicago, en route to Minneapolis.
WHY THEY OPPOSE CLEVELAND.

Eyaksviixe, Ind., May 27. It. A. Kelly,
ice chairman of Tammany, is in the city.
He has been to the Kentucky convention
and on a protracted southern trip in the
interest of David B. Hill. He 6aid he was
afraid Cleveland could not carry New
York. "Kentucky's action will be a big
buck-set to the ex-president. Better for
the national convention not to force Cleve
land on New York. It will be looked upon
as a slap in the face. If they can elect him
without New York's vote let them do so.
It is impossible to get the New York Dem
ocrats into line for Cleveland owing to his
appointment of the postmaster of New
York and other rank Republicans."
SILVER MEN IN CONFERENCE.
Meeting at Washington to Prepare
Washington, May 27. The second
national silver convention, one of whose
objects is the organization of a national
bi-metallic association for the promotion
of the cause of free bi-metallic coinage in
the United States, began in this city yes
terday with 100 delegates present and A.
J. Warner in the chair. He spoke in
favor of educating the people to the doc
trine of free silver and said that four
years ago, at the St. Louis convention, the
Democrats ignored the silver questtion.
At the Chicago convention a platform
was. adopted by the Republicans which
was construed as a declaration in favor of
, the restoration of silver as a money net!

passtd the act of 1S90.
Surprised at the House.
This was never accepted as a final meas
ure by silver men anywhere. The con
gress elected in ISttO, it was believed would
take step in advance. In fact no one
belic ed when the election returns came
in and the list of the present house of
representatives was made up that it would
be possible to hang up a free coinage bill
in a 1 ouse that was pledged to that object.
In the senate at this hour the silver ques
tion vas under discussion with a possibil
ity tint the lassage of a free coinage bill
woulc be the issue. Te senate had proved
itself :o be a better representative of the
people than the house on this question.
The n oney power in the United States
was n ver more adamant thau today. It
has teen determined by both political
parties that the silver issue will be elimi
nated in the coming presidential cam
paign. The Convention Organized.
Warner then proceeded to give the stand
ard a-guments for free silver and was
greeted with three cheers when he closed.
J. B. Morriss, of Indiana, was chosen tem
porary chairman and I.-e Crandall secre
tary. Morriss made a speech in which he
defend ! the doctrine of free coinage, and
after the appointment of the usual com
mittees a recess to 3 p. m. was taken.
When the convention reassembled Sena
tor Stewart addressed it. He spoke of the
proposd international monetary confer
ence, charging that its main purpose was
to delay any action on the silver ques
tion. Stew; rt was followed tor Representa
tives K-.rtine, of Nevada; rV-yan, of Ne

Jersey, ind Mr. Baldwin, of Connecticut,
in brief speeches. A recess was taken at
6 o'clock until S o'clock. At the night

a number of silver speeches were made.

Point Pleasant, Mo., May 27. Many
families without a place to lay their tired
heads at night except among the damp
leaves of the deep forests; 700,000 acres of
fields under water; houses washed away;
cattle drowned and floating here and
there; big trees taken up, root ffnd branch,
by the strong current of the Mississippi:
hundreds of people homeless, shelter
less and hungry, and standing on
the banks of the river waiting
for a steamboat or anything else that will
take them away from the threatening
floods; the river extending from hillside

The crops that are covered are estimated
as follows: , Wheat li5,000 ac res, f-J,OO0,HK;
corn, 100,000 acres. fl.5oO.rtH): cotton, 100,

l.stH) acres, $iSl,0oo; homes destroyed, 75,
000; cattle drowned, fc75,00O; total, o,s30,
0o0. This is a conservative estimate.
Captain Howard, of the Anchor line,
thinks it will go even beyond that. Most
of this trade goes to St. Louis, the rest to
Cairo, Ixmisville and Memphis. Many
flour mills have already been shut down
along the river and no more fires will be
built in the furnaces until another harvest
Cotton and Corn a Total Loss.
The cotton and the corn too will be a
total loss. If the waters were to go down
and leave the ground dry enough for
plowing by June 10 the wheat fields could
be converted into com fields, and, with a
fair season, a good crop could be raised.
But there is no prospect of the lowlands
becoming dry enough for the plow or har
row until the watermelons should ripen
in July. Thus one of the rich
est sections of the globe, a
section that gives employment to
many hundreds of hands and food to many
thousands of mouths, will abounc only in
briars, weeds and vines for another year.
There is not, nor will there be, any great
suffering except among the tenants and
negroes. The landlords are in good cir
cumstances, and, while the loss will lie se
verely felt by them, they will not le com
