The water iv Wash burn is ten feet above the high water mark of 1881, while here it is not quite up to that reejrd. This shows a gorge between here and Washburn, and when that then feet of water conies it, will make the flood supass any previous records. There is a prospect for the Heart River to break about the time the upper gorge breaks, and if it docs Man dan will bd afloat.

MI I: It tl AIM'N sPEtil'B, Tlie Ei'Senaioi Discourses on Mute's Rights. Nashville, Term., March 24 —A very large audience listened to a speech to night delivered by Senator Sherman on tbe invitation of the Republican members of the Legislature of Tennessee. Shermau said he accepted the invitation, believing that a fair representation made to the people of Tennessee, without dis tinction of party, of aims and principles of party, both in the pust and for tbe future, might induce th. m to join wiih us in a public policy that will contiibuie to Ibe interests of tbe people of Ten nessee aud of thu whole country, more and greater benefits and advan tages than can possibly be con ferred upon them by the Dem ocratic party." I have felt that the diffen itces that grew out of the war now hold a large body of honest and patriotic citizens of tbe south from co operating with tbe Republican party, which, in my judgment, is in sympathy with us. 1 thoight that pcrbaps I might be able to dissipate these preju d ces by a trank statement of the views whioh have actuated the R -publican party in the past, aud thus bring us into co-operation in measures tending to the advanoe of tbe common interests and prosperity of our country. At all events I feel confident that the people of Ten nessee, who from the very earliest settle ment have been distinguished by their courage and independence, will give a stranger among them a fair hearing for his honest opinion." After dwelli ig upon the lessons of his political life, Sherman said the Stats rights, as distinguished from the national authority, has been the disturbing element in Amer ican politioF, so the peo, 1) at large, both state and natien, are convenient agencies for the exeroise of disiinot and separate powers for the common good. To tbe individual oitizens they are guardians of distinct and separate rights and privileges, for which we owe allegi ance and duty. They are no hostile spheres, but, like planets moving in the great harmony of the univeise, in friendly co-operation. But it is tbe people, the whole people and nothing but tbe people that ia the governing sno paramount power of our system. This, at least, is the theory I have been taught and if any of you, reared in a different school, have inherited feelings of jealousy and suspicion of the federal suthoritits and of espeoial reverence for that of tbe State of Tennessee, you may fiud in this tho germ of the contro versy, fought out i i the war. If I un derstand tbe principles of the Republi can party, I would sr.y they are em braced iv the trinity of Union, Constitu tion nnd Country; the preservation of the Union, the maintenance of the full powers of the Constilntion, and the growth, prosperity and grandeur of our country in all its parts, as it is now or is Ito be. These ideas we inherit from the wisest statesmen in American history, and now, since they Lave been reaffirmed He waa too Sensitive. KosKBCRfi, Or., Maroh 24.—James Aden, a young man, aged 20, living 15 miles from Glendale, in this oounty, sui cided to day by shooting himself through ihe head with a revolver.

MARCH 25. 1887. by war, there ia nothing to divide Amer ican citizens by sectional lines bnt preju dice and passion." The speaker then devoted himstTf to other controversies, which finally led to the war of th« rebel lion and to tbe features of the strife relat ing to Tennessee. "When the war was over," Sherman said, "the people of tho north heartily approved ef the generous terms granted by Oeneral Grant to Gen eral Lee and the Confederate troops, and wished that the people of the south should be restored to all their rights and privileg-s, subjeot only to such condi tions as honor and good faith seemed to demand, arising out of the proclamation of President Lincoln for the emaucit a tion of slaves. Both tides felt that the abolition of slavery was the neces sary result of the war and it seemed to u< tbat if tbe skives were lo be free tbey must be armed with the privileges of freemen, and these were secured to them by constitutional amendments. Tbe attempt to force these rights by the national authorities have thus far partially failed and now it is considered, under limitations of Ibe oonstitu'ion, tbat tbe rights ot a citizen of a r t ite can only be enforced through the State or national tribunals, and when public opinion is intolerant and voters will not do their duties as citizens, nither white or black miy be without remedy for the grossest wrong, except the right to migrate to where his rights will be rcspecte I. Our constitutions are a-ed upon the ide i tbat suob denial of rights is impossible and I trust ;hat the time is not far distant when the >eople of every State will feel it la be both just and expedient that rvery citizen of the State shall bo pro jected iv the free and equal enjoyment it every right aud privilege conferred >y the Constitution of the Uni ed States. Tbe Republican party is pledged to this policy; and, though it will use nn un ionsiitutional means to secure its rights, t would be false to its prinoiples if it lid not use all its moral and legal power :o that end. No wrong can be done to ;be humblest citizen and no r gbt with leld without reacting upon tbe commu lity at large. I was glad to hear, in lasting through several of the Southern states, conservative citizens say that public sentiment now revolts at the lulawful methods to defraud the free ixsrvha vi equal rights of citizens, that lave been adapted in several States, and ire still practiced in what is known as ihe black c unties of the South. So ong as sucb methods are resorted to ;here will be the keen sense of wrong md i justice to the ii jured parties, and those who piaotice auch off nses « ill, in ike end, si.tic for it. Sectional feeling will continue to exist as long as large nasses of people, whether rich or poor, white or black, are denied th ur rights to • bare in self-government, but there is mother grou d upon which I prefer to oase my appeal to tbe South lor justice tnd fair play to tbe African race. It woe recently stated in debate by Senator Vest, of Missouri, that when our wives and children were in their hands during the war, they acted so as to make every man in the South their friends, who had one par ticle of manhood about him. It' this be so, as all history attest*, then wo may appeal to the manly spirit of our own race, to protect these free men from the lawless injustice and cruelty of all those of our race, who may hereafter seek to deprive them of their plain constitu tional rights, either by open force or by taking advantage of their ignorance. If the kindly spirit, started by Senator Vest, is manifested, the color line will gradually fade away iv the dim horizon from American politics nnd we can then took only to the safety, development and power of one great aud united country." After touching on tbe financial prob lem, he said: "Oue cf Ihe great objects of the formation of government was to secure such improvements for commerce; all great cities of the country think that all rivers and harbors are unimportant, except their own, and yet the commerce of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers is much greater in quantity and value than the commerce with the Unites States and foreign nations." Iv conclusion he said: "No portion of the public expen diture is more prolitij of benefit, or is more carefully disbursed, than that ex pended by tbe engineer corps in their inn rovement of our rivers and harbors. If President Cleveland had ever beeu west of Buffalo, be w uid never have pocketed ihe River and Harbor bill. I believe that it is a wise pub lic policy to erect suitable publio buildings to carry on the business ot the country wherever tlie amount of busi ness w ill justify such au expenditure " Senator Sherman, in closing, eulogiz d the Republican party at length, referr.i g to Ilia clamorous cry of the Democrat* in 1884, about the "time for a change," and dented tbat they had accomplished or attempted any important reform. EASTERN. lug several Places. A ItIUUAL CROWD UONK TO lllf l/.11., James Hunter, of Philadelphia, Usiib to a Better Clime. Philadelphia, March 24. —The liabil ities of the firm of James and John Hun ter, so far as discovered, amount to $191,000. All the compromising paper of the firm bears the name of James Long, President of the Union Trust Company. Long says he does not know how muob puper his name has been forged to, but the forged paper has been estimated as high as the three-fourths of the entire amount of ascertained liabilities. In ad dition to tbe amount men ioned there ia supposed to be a large amount of paper still afloat, which i ears only the firm name. The rumor that James Hunter took the steamer for Brazil yesteiday gained ground this morning, as nothing bas been heard from him since Tuesday, when he left the city, ostensibly for New York. President Rammell, of tbe Mechanics' National Bank, says his bank has notes from James and John Hunter, bearing James Long's name to the aggregate of $60,000, but Long has not yet bee i able to decide wbich bore the true or which the forged signatures. A.l he could tell was tbat he had memoranda in his bill book of all the Hunter paper he has on Long seoared by a mortgage of $100,000. "I don't know whether James Hunter oan or not, but I am pretty sure be will commit suioide. I don't think be baa tbe moral oourage to come baok and face the music Tbe hcory is tbat when certain notes ma tured James Hunter first resorted to tbe desperate scheme of forging James Long's signature. This he kept up, it is supposed, for years. A guess at the assets and liabilities is made as follows: Assets Wynnewood farm $200,000, Conestnga mills $100,000, Norristown mills $50,000, John Hunter's residence $25,000, James Hunter's residence $8,000. Total $383, --000 Liabilities: Notes upon which suit has began $156,000, paper taken up out of the Merchant's bank $20,000; paper taken up out of the Keystone National Bank, $15,000; two mortgage! on Wynnewood farm, $140,000; mortgage on Conestoga mills, $100,000; mortgage on Norristown mills, $25,000; mortgage held by John Maguiro, $60,000. Total, $576,100. ! VERONA BALDWIN. She Flees from the Johnson Mansion. HER DOOR LOCKED. s>ho Escaped through a Window aud was Reported to be Abdncted. As announced in tbe Herald yester day morning Major Bell obtained an order to take, the testimony of Verona Baldwin before a notary pnblio, and although this interesting event will not take place for almost a week, the Major evidently intends that he will not lose sght of Miss Baldwin nntil it has been effected. Yesteiday morning early it was discovered that Verona was nolin her room in the Johnson Mansion, and as the door was locked and the aoreen of the window down it was surmised that she bad either been abducted or had fled. Consequently tbe Major did not rest easy until be was infoimedof her where abouts. A representative of the Herald bearing the wild rumors which were floating about learned tbat she bad re turned to her room at the Juhnaon Man sion and called upon her for tne purpose of hearing what she bad to say on the subject. Wnen be arrived Mias Baldwin waa iv the garden cultivating the flowers, but she cheerfully consented to tell all about the fears wnich beset her on the night previous. She stated tbat she bad gone to her room, wbich is on the lower floor of tbe home, ad joining the parlors, early in the evening and had ••ntert ined Mrs. Perkins. Shortly after 9 o'clock Mrs. Perkins Itfl her and after a few moments she attempted to leave 1 tbe room but to ber surprise found the door woulil not open. She oould see . no key on tbe inside of the door and t l . >t impressed her as being still more SlraagS, She then applied her eye to ' tbe keyhole and saw the key in the < lock and also observed tbat it had been , turned on the ou side of tbe door. , After her past treatment she could not belp being suspicious and she thought j at once tbat either some one had locked her there for no good purpose or else that some ptr.ies were trying to gain , possession of her to take her to the Insane Asylum. She bad seen two men sitting on the , piazzt talking about E J. Baldwin and had heard oue say to the other that some man passing ihe Pico House was Baldwin, ai.d immediately her fright was greater, thinking that htr imprisonment was due to bis agents. Wben she found the door was looked she called out several times, but receiv ing no answer went to the window and pushing the screen out crawled to ibe ground and went to the back door, which was also rooked. She oolled again, this time for admittance to the house, but no one coming or answering, she went down to Main street, where she saw a policeman, aud after telling him tbat some one had locked her iv her room, she visited the oftieeof Mr. Lucas, a private t'ctective and friend of her family in Oregon. She told him that she had been locked in her room and 1 tbat she would not go back, but wanted i him to engage a room where she could j slay without be.ug subj cted to such treatment. Mr. Lucas took her to the St. ' Elmo Hotel, where she obtained a room j for her, registering ber as Mrs. Clark, ; so tbat no one would know tbat Verona 1 Baldwin was there, in case the register -hould be inspected. Yesterday morn ii g hbe awoke late, owing to having been kept awi.ke by music in the hotel, aud ' she saw in the morning papers that she was to be a witness lor Major Bell. Sh then went to a restaurant aud to. k brenkftst, and was on her wuy to the M jot's office when be was met by Charles Bell. "Love Is a Tender Flower," These t* o young ladies were specially sweet in execution and manner. Miss Evans had no* so much to do ss in Ihe operas in which she hus hereto fore appeared.

Boccacio will be repeated on Saturday night by tbe desire of a large number of tbe play goers who frequ* nt the Grand. For to-night Prince Mithtualem is the attraction, and for the maiinee to-mor row afternoon The Oath of Love is un der-cored. Before closing one wishes to refer to the acceptable manner in which Mr. W. H. Weal took the part of the oooper, winning emphatio approbation from all parts of the house; and Mr. Clark as tbe barber manifested a decided talent for comic business. The setting and dressing of the piece are good. Four Negroes Fonnd With the Disease. Health Officer Hagan reports that he found four negroes down with smallpox at 334 Buena Vista street yesterday. These cases will be removed to a tent on the hospital grounds as soon aa matrasses are furnished them. This is tbe sum total of cases discovered yesterday. Quarantine baa been raised from 356 Center street, 21 Pennsylvania avenue, 570 Buena Vista street, and the brick yard. It will be raised on Satur day from 621 Hill street, where the patient has recovered. All the Americans in the hospital are well, ex cept Wm. Pullism, who is getting along remarkably well. There are five Mexicans sick in the hospital. County Recorder Gibson, who has been quarantined in lb hills, was yesterday taken back to his bouse, it being thoroughly proven that he did not have the smallpox His dis ease consists of nervous exhaustion and an eruption caused by iudigestion, Mis- Cook is nearly well and has not been ill of anything approaching smallpox. The new settlement of San Dimas is going with a rush liks the town of Mon rovia. The settlement is about ten days old, and three surveyors are at work staking out the lots, which are sold ahead of tbe oarriers of the theodolite and tho street ta pel inc. A lumber yard is there in advance of the railway. A two-story brick building is going up for a hardware store; H. W. Mills is erect ing a two story building 20x40 feet for mercantile purposes; M. L. Wicks, Eg„ is building a mercantile building 25*60 feet, while the M. E. Church South has secured a lot and over $1500 in subscriptions for a church edifice, which will be erected at once. It is probably nn open secret that Mr. Wioks generously gave $1000 of the funds sub scribed tor the church. A school lot has also been reserved for a public school, and water pipes are being laid all throngh tho settlement. Tue cars will be running to the San Dimas settle ment next week from San Bernardino, wbich is distant about thirty six miles. San Dimas is twenty five miles east of Los Angeles, on the new Atchison, To peka and Santa Fe railway, wbich will be completed in about teu days, The whole high mesa is alive with activity from Pasadena to Cucamonga. Verona said she had always coosidered Mrs. Perkins her friei d, and she uid not know why she shoald have locked her door, but Mrs. Perkins had explained that she hud not knowingly locked the doer, and she believed ber. She was not afraid of being murderad or killed, but she would not go to the insane a-ylum again, when she knew she was not insane, and she would do all iv her power to give relief to the unfortunates who were oonlined in tho asylum. She had not been insane when she was sent to the asylum, and she knew there were others who were not insane, but are kept there and treated in a horrible way. Mrs. Perkins said tbat she left the room and had no recollection of locking the door. It was probable, however, tbat she had locked tbe door instinc tively, tbe key being ou tbe outside, but she was a friend to Verona and would do nothing to injure or alarm ber. Under Sheriff Mitchell was notified yes erday morning that something was wrong with Miss Baldwin, that she bad been abducted or had disappeared, aud he visited tbe Johnson Mansion aud examined the premises. He found the screen down, and al-o noticed marks of Mi s Baldwin's skirts and boots on the window-sill and on the ground below. Without knowing the ciroums .anoes, Mr. Mitchell supposed something had hap pened to her, and was about to employ the forces of bis office to search for her, when he was notified that she had been The Glendora Laud Company was in corporated yesterday.
