The Mississippi lUver la till booming, and from all Indications tho crisis has not yet been reached, and tho proba bilities are that Itwill not bo In thenexttwelve hours. The rlvor to-day at thin point has reached the 2HD-foot stage, the highest point slnoo 1888. when 20.3 was reached. The Mis souri ltiver Is rising very rapidly, and the pros pects aro that thu Mississippi will prcsont a very uglv appearance before morning. A sur vey of the conditions on thn upper Missouri. Illinois, and Mississippi do not lndleatn that tho flood will reach the danger line 32 feet. Tho chances ore that it will not go moro than ?, foot higher. Tho Illinois flood will havo no urther effect upon local conditions, and a fur ther rise horo will have to bo fed entirely from wator from tho Mississippi. New Orleans. May 10. The rlvor outlook grows dally worso bore. Anothor heavy rain fell to-day, two Inches in barely an hour. He low .Sew Orleans tho situation Is most critical.

It wan carrlod off by tho cutters, howover. and caused no duraage. The United Statos englneor who is In charge Of tho Government work at Morcnnza tofo- firaphed to-day that tho report of t'nptJJela loussayo as to the breaking of that leveo was ncorrect aud that It was Mill Intact, and that no break had yet occurred In the lino of lovees above Now Orleans. This afternoon a break was reported on tho JJttlo Texas levee in Ilnyou I.a 1'ourclio, about four nillos south of Napolc'invllle, tho county eat or Assumption.

Her wraps and lint wore gone, and thcro was plenty of proof to show that she had eloped elthor with Louis Marcott of Brooklyn, who had been visiting In tho town, or Georgo Hoff man, tho son of a carpontnr nt Bharon Springs, or with both of thorn. Neither of tho young men was a person who could associate with Miss Jackson with thoconsout of her family. It is now known that sho had socrolly nsso elated with Marcott for somo time, nnd sho agreed to tnko enough money from hor parents to carry out bis plans. Hoffman agreed to no compnny tlieeouplo on tho promlso that ho should roceivo a cortnln amount of tho stolon money. It is believed that ho had nmdo ar rangements totakn with him Town Bmlth, tho daughter nf tho leading elnrgymim of thu town, but sho refused to gout tho last moment Under cnvorofdnrknosn und Willi tho money In his pocket.

Thu distracted fathor caused tho entire State to bo searched, but his Inlluenco kept tho tllscraco of his family from the general public 1th n two weeks ho spent a large sum In tho search, tho fruitless charnctorof which almost klllod both parents. Hofiman was arrosted. how ever, nnd this led to tho dl'covory of the tact that Marcott and Miss Jackson were on their vay to Chicago, whore they expected to stay at tho Falmer House under tho nunio of Car- Bheriff F.

Ho confessed that bo was living with Jllbs Jackson at the Contral Hotel on Clark street Honppoarod indifferent as to hl fate, ana readily accompanied the pollsvmen to the hotel. ... . Tho glrl'o shnmo was pitiful when faced with a full sense or her wrongdoing.

It appears that, although tho correspondent called at tho losatlon, accompanied by LugenoMltkfovvicz'a Chinese body servant the Minister would not seo him. nnd it is further stated that thu so called Interview with the Minister was a puro invontlon on the part of tho correspondent It Is nlso declared thnttho 1'resident did not noliiy tho Chlneso Minister of hiv Intention to slcntho bill, nnd that it would havo beon (iu!to an nburd thincfor tho President to havo done so. and that thu wholo article vvus invented by tho reporter lilmsolf. It Is assorted that China will not tnko an ex treme step In tho matter, that is to say. to broik up commercial nnd dil lomntlo relations with the United Muter, at, tho now act onlv nflocts tho laboring clat-sei. It Is not thought likely that tho Chinese (iovemment will resort to any retaliation, but sho may gradually rostiict tho freedom hlthorto nnd nt presei.t enjoyed by tho American mls-lonnrloa in China ns a moans to get their backers hern to Inlluenco tho next Congress toward modifying thn net which has just passed. 'J lie fact of tho President's npnrovul nf tho bill was cabled to China, hut It Is believed nt tho legation that tho oullook touds to show that China will try to remove tho difliculty through diplomatic channels that am still open. it has just linked out that a noted Inwyer in Now lork. who Is very friendly to China, and who hns had extenblvo expurienco fur years with v irluiM foreign lagutloiu. in Washington, has advised the Chlnesii icsldeiits in America topurdmsoa block of ground In tho city of Washington and oroct upon it n mngnlllcent hulldirifjof Chinese architecture and present It lo the Emperor of China for occupation by the Chlneso legation.

Tho llopubllcnn nows papor organs thnt aro ongagod In tho ungrnto fill task ot bollttlltig tho Importatico of tho political contorenca which took plnco in this city last Saturday evening, find It necossary to mako downright misstatements of fact in ur dor to countoract tho effect of what took place. Somo of those organs, moreover, go so far as tostatothat nothing liken conferonco took placo, and that tho talk botween Messrs. Flattand Quay was entirely Informal, and not arranged for In advanae. Thoso reports only sorvo to mako plain tho Ignorance of thoso who clrculato them. Tho fact Is that tho conferonco was ot tho most formal, proarrnngod character, and that It was called for tho ono particular purpose "of mapping cut s nrogrammo by which tho ambition ot Fiesl dont Harrison aouldbndofcntod. Tho Bopubll can managorswhouoin pared notes at this raeot Ing, rccolved reports from frlonds In various parts of the Unltod Statos who are working In harmony with them, making suggestions for tho continuance of tho work against Harrison. Thoy were highly gratified, and Indeed somo what surprised at tho hoadway thoy are mak ing, and ono of thorn says to-day that ho Is not overstating tho o.iso whon ho says that Harri son is alroady a boaten man. The reports ot tho Saturday night confer ence sent to the nowspapors that print the nows woro Inaccurate only in ono respect, that is. in making the meeting placo ot tho antl-IIarrlson Republican managers tho houso ot Sonntor Quay. Tho fact Is that Sonntor Camoron hnd tho honor ot entortalnlnir tho "conspirators." ns they havo since boon callod by tho Harrison organs, and tho eentlouicn mot at his aristo crats old Lafayotto placo losidonco, next door to the houso of Mr. Blafnc, not by accl dont but in rosponso to writton invitations, slgnod by Senator Cameron, to meet Mr. Flatt Senator Washburn was invited as tho repre sentative of Mr. Blaine, Senator Stookbrldge of Michigan as tho representative ot Gen. Alger. Senator Wolcott as tha representative ot any candidate to boat Harrison, no mattor what his name may be. and a momber ot the Houso as a supposod supporter of the Presi dential aspirations of Thomas B. Rood. Senator Stockurldgo, who is a candldato for reelection, and therefore not dabbling too much In politics just now. bozgod to bo ex cused on tho ground of a prior engagement Senators Washburn and Wolcott woro out of town, nnd tho membor ot tho Houso did not got his invitation in time, so thatSonators Cirncron and Quay and Mr. Flatt woro tho only "conspirators" present. Thoy woro In earnest however. In tholr deslro to bring about tho defeat of Mr. Harrison at any cost and beforo eoparating agrood that tholr task was not so dluiault us it might nt first appear to be. At tho outset It was conceded that Mr. Blaine was thu man tho country wanted and tho one who could be nomlnatod by acclamation If he would be content to sit still and lot things tako their natural course. Mr. Flatt expressed his on tire frlendlinoss to Mr. Blaine, and as for the FonnsylvantnSenatorn.lt was not necessary for them to say that the Hey stone Slate would, if de3ired. bo for the man from Maine as loy ally as it always had beon. Of course, however, it would not do for Blaine to bo u candldato at this time, nnd, in deed, tho stitement was made in the confer onco on tho authority ot u close personal and political friend ot Mr. Blalno that beforo the meeting of the Minneapolis Convention a lot tor would bo pennod by him supplemental to the one which he wrote to Mr. Clarkson In the winter, nnd which would mako It absolutely usoloss for his frlonds to attempt to make a candidate of him. In view of this statement It waB ncroed, after a long discussion of tho merits ot many possible candidates, that Sherman was the man who seemed to be the strongest and most available. With New York. Pennsylvania, and Ohio to start with, ho would mako a most formidable candidate. Thoso States, it was paid, ho could havo for the asking In case his candidacy should prom lso I ho strength ncoessary to uomlnnto him. and tho only question nt all was nbout Ohio. After tho mattor was fully talked ovor It was decided to sond nn ngont to Ohio, not to lmvd Fornkor promlso to nominate Sherman In tho Convention, as has been stated, but to seo whether ho and his friends would agroo to giro Shorman honest and loyal support Mr. Flatt who was rnrtlcularly friendly to Bhcr mnn, at the outset of the talk expressed his unalterablo opposition to Harrison, und whon Senator Illscock's stntemont that ho should vote for the Frosldnnt's renomlnntlon was quotod to him Mr, Flatt remarked that His cock's support omounted to very little at any rate, and that perhaps It would bo woll for tho New York 8onator to go a Httlo slow, in viow ot tho fact that ho hod a pretty largo fight on hand to secure his ro3!octlon. A suggestion was mado at tho conference In the Interest of tho candidacy of Mr. Hood. It was reported that Bocd himself was convinced that ho hnd a good chance nnd that if tho sup port of New York woro promlsod nt the outsot ho could secure such n largo portion ol tha New England dolegatloaas to mako him a most formidable candidate. Mr. Flatt while expressing his great admiration for Mr. Bocd, said ho did not think ho would develop sufficient strength In view ot the peculiar condition of thlDgs In Matno, nnd for other reasons, to warrant thollopubllcansln putting him up as tho proper man to boat Har rison. Tho Pennsylvania Sonntors agrood In this viow of tho case, and whilo thoy wore per sonally as friendly to Mr, Ileod as Mr. Piatt was they did not think It wlso to tako up such a conspicuous frlond and advocate of tho Forco bill as tho ox-Speaker, Tho claims of Gon. Alger wore nlso consid ered, but the Michigan mnn was talked ot chlellyas an ally In tho cause ot dofuntlng Harrison. It wns generally concodod that Alger was not in tho rnco. although It was ad mlttod that hlo nnmo would bo presented to tho Convention and that ho would have a ro spcctablo numbor of supporters. Tho not result of tho mooting wns tho deter mination thnt as all thn reports, from tho South nnd elsewhere, showed that a much larger numberof nnti-Harrlsondologatoswero being electod than thoro was any reason to hoou for a month ago, tho work of preparing todefoattho President at Minneapolis should be pushod forward with renowod vigor. At presont tho namo of Shorman Is tho ono nbout which tho nntl-llarrlson forces will rally, and while It Is concodod that ho Is the strongost candldato now In sight thn contingency of Blalno's final decision is to bo kept constantly In mind, lu other words, If Blalno does not himself mako It Impossible, ho will bo nomlnatod. If ho does, then thoantl Hnrrlson managers nt Indlunapolls will throw nil tho votes thoy can control In aid ot the movemont to put tho namo ot John Shorman of Ohio at tho head of the ticket Directed 10 Ir Ilequealed Not to Pay, Wabhinoton, May 10.
