An Exploring Expedition in the Everglades of Florida. Indiana is Visited by Heavy Rains Causing Inundations and Loss of Property, Disaster on Lake Superior--Indig nant Farmers---The Destitute Emigrants--The Walkers. Exploring the Uvergladea. NEW ORLEANS, November 19.-The Tnimes- Democrat received the following from the everglades, via Jacksonville, dated November 12: "The Times-Democrat expedition through the everglades reached lake Okeechohee November 8. The expedi tion encountered two severe gales on the lake. Two boats were swamped but no one was lost. We found eight large rivers running from the lake south into the everglades, which we partly ex plored. We made six unsuccessful at temntts to cut through a swamp bor dering the everglades. On November l0th we went up the Times-Democrat river a distance of two miles. This river is on the extreme south shore of.the lake, and from the banks of the river we cut through the surrounding marsh. We cannot travel over a quarter of a mile a day, as there is neither water to float nor any 'lad-nothing but mud and marsh, with grass ten feet high. We are going through if it is in the power of mortal man. We are all well." Subsequent dispatches indicate that the expedition is in great danger, if not lost, because of great fires in the saw grass. This information comes from a gentleman who accompanied the expe dition to the saw grass region bordering the lake. The Times-Democrat tele graphed to the Distin company, now dredging along the upper border of lake Okeechobee, to send a relief party in searc:l of the expedition and discover if it has been injured by fires. .44---~I+*· · - - Heavy Rains.

WINNIPEG, November 21.-At a meet ing last night of the farmers of Portage county speeches were made denouncing the wheat monopoly as an unjust com bination against the farmers. The fol lowing resolution was unanimously adopted: Resolved, That in view of the fact that nearly all industries have formed com binations for mutual support, it is time the farmers combined in order to get fair prices for their produce and prevent being victimized by wheat rings and millers' associations. The speakers denounced the govern ment policy of railway monopoly. Not Guilty.

OTTAWA, November 21.-The report made by the combined city charities point out a terrible state of destitution among the poor Irish emigrant families of this city. To-day's Globe asks: Why should not the imperial government be called upon to refund what Toronto and other Oanadian cities may have to pay for the support of some of those who are reduced to abject poverty? They are sent to us because the imperial policy requires their removal from Ireland. OTTAWA, November 21.-There is lit tle probability that the government will assist the destitute emigrants sent out by the imperial authorities. It is sug gested that the destitute emigrants be shipped to the place from whence they came, as was done by the authorities of some of the Americap ports. A Row. KLINSTON,Ont., November 19.-There was a terrible row last night in Victoria music hall. An ex-member of the co alition, who was intoxicated, entered the hall and struck several individuals. Capt.

Then four of the police entered and arrested the young man, when some resistance followed. The crowd surged and pushed about the hall. The officers of the peace and the army were surrounded and kicked. One was knocked down and with the prisoner scuffled on the floor. The disorder was fearful.

Walter Phelps, member-elect to the next congress, in which he gives ex pression to the general wish among the republicans of the next house that ex Speaker Keifer should refuse to be a candidate for the empty honor of a re nomination. It seems that Phelps has written Keifer on the subject at the suggestion of members from different parts of the country, some of whom have served before, and others who enter con gress for the first time. They believe their party to bestrengthened by taking a new departure, and that the House of Representatives is the best place to be gin the new movement in the selection of new names for all positions. It is said that the reason Phelps was selected to make this correspondence was because he is not personally acquainted with Keifer, and being a New Jersey repub lican he has not been involved in any of the factional quarrels of the patty; he is therefore acceptable to both the stalwarts and the half-breeds. In this interview Phelps expresses the opinion that the ex-Speaker, having the welfare of the republican party at heart, will not fail to recognize that its future success depends on united action, which can only be obtained by mutual, full and friendly concessions, and the avoidance of any action that will -tend to keep up the disagreements of the past two or three years. Phelps, in the name of the party and country, appealed to Keiferto announce to his friends that he would not accept a re-nomination. He felt sure that Keifer's action would be folldwed by the sergeant-at-arms and the other officers of the last House. Keifer's reply has not yet come to hand. ...... -m.-...Ji; ... -- I - .. . - .
