The river Is swelling ogaln at the rato of two Inches an hour. Dispatches from points above report continued rains and tho water rising. The people living In the bottom lands nro tilled with apprehension of another Hood. Many have not yet re dcovered from tho late deluge,and the dis couraging outlook tends to Increase tho uncomfortable feeling. With nine feet of water now submerging the low dis tricts of the two cities, It Is quite proba ble that the situation of allalrs among the sufferers In Allegheny Is worse, lr possible, than at any day since the Hood abated, and. numerous additional cases of destitution are reported. Many of tho victims, In addition to having been plundered by water, were thrown out of employment by work shops being devas tated, and under any circumstances this iact was aione productive or more or more or less want among the poorer classes. Over 3C00 people were supplied with food yesterday, an Increase over any previous day. Washington, February 12.

In order to give his personal attention to his subject Sec retary Lincoln has abandoned his nro- jeoted trip to Chicago. A REVENGEFUL LOVER. He Chsses Christina With a Knife But Is Stayed From Commuting Injury. Christina Connors, the head laundress at 1 lord's hotel, has of late become tho object of a dish washer's affect'lons, who works at the same hotel. Unfortunately Christina does not reclprocate.tlie atten tion on the part of her lover, and It Is further said that tho Mexican loves her not for the charms of her face, but on account of a nice little house and lot whlfih his unwilling beloved one owns. The man laying down his affections at the shrine of his love, and Christina Ignoring both, brought matters to a cli max, and this morning tho gentle itomeo was transferred Into a murderous Othello, who, with a long and fearful looking weapon, chased Christina Into herroom, where she took safety from his bloody Intention, In the mean time the heavy tramp or feet intimated to the unllst ened to, and revengeful lover, that help was at hand ; yet, ere he could make any escape, Ulllcer zink presented bis card In the shape of a warrant, and our Mexican was lodged In the bat cave, watere he can "chew the cud of meditation" as to whether he had done right or wrong; and violence pales, but gentleness pre- vails, nnd if he had only remembered the old saying that "Faint heart never won fair lady," things might have been different." COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. Several Petitions Cranled--The Poor House Re port Bills Ordered to be Paid. The petition of A, PIcper, ct al., for a change In the lllanco road, was granted so far as to appoint a Jury of view, whose report will be heard at the special March term. The petition of A.

BILLY M'COY HIDES IN AMBUSCADE AND SHOOTS AN OLD MAN. Marshall, the Victim, Is Carried lo His Humble Home, And Then to the HoipiUI-. McCoy scapes And Is Not Yet Captured. A poor old mnn named Marshall, a carpenter, In tho employ of the Lone Star brewery, was wending his way homeward last evening, near sundown, by tho river side, and about midway be tween tho brewery and his humble home. The entire distance traversed was not over 400 yards. It appears that he had called 11111 McCoy, who did the shooting, a thief, and If the police re cords have not made any mistake, he called McCoy by his right name. Mrs. Coggshall, who lives across from the box tent of Marshall, wns told this, and re peated It to McCoy. He Instantly de termined to avenge himself on Marshall. Marshall was n hard-working man, 'a widower with three children, two girls and a boy, none of them very bright, and the oldest about 13 years, and relied on his dally labor to support them. A ioht reporter Inquired for tho scene of tho shooting this morning at tho'new .one Star brewery, In course of erec tion. Ho was directed to follow tho trail of tho San Antonio river, where It meanders and flows placidly, though tortuously, up to within a few feet of the tent which Marshall occupied with his motherless brood. After following tho directions given by n party of ldlo men, who eat warming themselves In tho blue smoke which colled up from an Impromptu lire innde of few wet logs, ho at length struck, tho house of Mrs. Coggshall. Here n girl of some 14 years approached the door, Inquired who was without and opened It. Slio had nothing to say, only that Marshall was removed to tho hospltaj at midnight, at the advice of Detectlvo Hughes, who had been early on the groundtook his notes and ascer tained that his rough, open tent was no placo In which the sufferer could expect relief or a fair chance for life tinder tho circumstances. Marshall was shot through the breast In the region of tho heart, and his condition at the hospital, though not altogether promising, evinces that he has some chances of llfo. McCoy, the villain who shot him on this lovely spot, Is a lowrufllan. His as sociates were always among tho lowest of the white, Mexican and colored ruf fians who frequent this neighborhood He lay In wait for his victim as ho returned from his labor, and tired three shots, though only one took effect. After doing tho shooting ho escaped and, not' withstanding all the efforts of tho police to capture him, he has so far eluded his pursuers. IScBldes tho police force on the trail, Bob Alexander, from the Slier. I IT s oillce, was persistent and labored all night to And some clue, of tho escaping assassm. It Is to be hoped that Marshall will recover, If only to be of some help tohls children, thus left orphaned indeed, and that McCoy will bo soon In the hands of the law and receive the heaviest punishment known to the statutes of tlul State. IS IT FOUL PLAY? Singula Disappearance of Fred Fries, the Money Clerk of Wells, Fargo A Co. Mr. Fred Fries, who Is well known here, having tsen born and reared in San Antonio, Is, unaccountably, missing. Ho has been In tho employ of Wells, Fargo & Co. for the past three years, and lat terly In the capacity of money clerk, He Is a most model young man In de portment and conduct, and his tils appearance Is onusing his relatives and friends much anxiety. He was last seen on the corner of Soledad and Commerce streets on Monday night about 11 o'clock, and slnco then all traces of hlmhave been completely wiped out. Mr. Nixon, the agent of tho Express company, wultcd for him allday yesterday, very much put out nnd nonplussed by his failure to arrive and resume his accustomed work. Wait ing until late last evening ho examined the safe and found that all of Fries' ac count were correct, und the money and valuables, for which ho should be held responsible, were found correct and ac countedor. There was not a penny missing. Tho result showed that the charge confided to him was , not mis placed and Is In keeping with his well known character for probity, upright- ness and loyal devotion to duty. Mr. Nixon, the agent, wns his warm friend, and has always kept his eye on young Fries us ono of tho most promising young men ho had ever met for promo tion with the company. It Is feared that ho has met with foul' play. Thieves orgarroters,who appear to bo In some force here, and who knowing the position of .trust which young Fries occupied with the Express cpmpany, may have entrapped him Into some prl vat o place and robbed or murdered him expecting great booty to bo found on his person. His brothers, Walter, George ml lotils, are moving heaven and earth to And him or some clue to his disap pearance, but so fur, unfortunately, no word lins been brought back concerning him. A l.iiuiT man had a conversation with his brother-in-law, Mr. G. MoKny, this morning. Mr. .McKay states that to Mm and all young Frets' relatives tho affair Is most sadly mysterious. Unless ho has been suddenly waylaid they could not conjecture why ho should bo away. Ho lost his mother at an early nge and Mrs. McKay, his only sister, supplied the Inceof n mother by raiding him. She was particularly attached to Fred. Ho gnvo her all his conlldenccs and told her all bis private affairs, as well as contldcd to her all his aspirations. Ho was, In fact, most devoutly attached to her. Had anything been wrong Mrs. McKay Is sure sho would havo beard It from her brother's own lips. 'Ibis Is a heart-rending mystery, and It Is to be hoped It will very soon bo leared tip to relieve his anxious rela tives and friends. That somo clue be afforded towards discovering young Fries, tho following us a descriptive list Is hereto appended: fred Fries Is almost six feet In height, weighs about 1KO pound, has dark hair and eyes and small dark moustache. He last woro a dark sack coat, black pants with narrow whlto stripes and dark brown soft felt hat. His shoes are No. 8. He Is of fair complexion." It would be an act of humanity, a min istration of relief, to his dlstresscd.rcla tlves to send Immediate word, If such there be, concerning tho missing young man. Tree Planting. The question of planting trees and beautifying the public park is assuming very gratifying proportions. A meeting has been. held In tho Third Wnrd, with Aldermnn l.ockwood, as chairman, to forward efforts looking to this end. Last evening another meeting was held In tho Hecorder's court for tfio samo'purpose, which elected for Its chairman Alder man Schrclner, and Junius Means, Sec retary. Aldermen Schrclner, George It. Dashlell, Antonio Itlvas, Junius Means nnd Jocob V ebcr were appointed a com mittee to solicit subscriptions. They hnve about $1M in hand, and this, with what they have, and thoy aro conlldcnt they can collect, will soon aggregate a sulliclcnt sum to carry tho object In view. This Is a praiseworthy under taking, and our citizens wish It a mag- nlllcent success. Some Things Money Can't Buy. If a man has not a good education, all his money will never buy It for him. He can say, as I havo heard of men savlnir. "I would give all 1 havo If I had only a good education and a well trained mind," but ho will say It In vain. Ills money nlonc can't obtain It. Neither will wealth Itself give a man, or a woman, good manners. Nothing, next to good morals and good health, Is of moro Importance than easy, graceful, self-possessed manners. Jlut they can't bo had for mere money. man who Is what Is called "shoddy," who has not taste and correct manners, will never buy themthough ho would, no doubt like It. Thev arenot toliolinii in tho market. They are nowhero for sale, x on mignt as wen try 10 nuy sky, or ciuuu, ur euiiueuius. Money can't purchase a rood con. science. If a noor man. or a bov. orirlrl any ono has a clear conscience that lives on a tonu iiko a ueii wnen touched iv the hammer, then bo sure he Is vnstlv richer than the millionaire who docs not possess such a conscience. Good prin ciples nro ueuer iiiun guiu. jAlllllo goiu of Golcondn couldn't buy them for n man who hasn't them already. Girls, Help Yourselves. There Is real nobility In the power to help one's self. A gcnulno girl ought to bo above the accidents of changing "cir cumstances. There may bo foolish but terfly girls, who caro supremely for dress and admiration, and who float on tho sunlit current of to-day as though no storm could ever come. To them a word of advice and warning may seem as an Idle tale. To tho girl whole bright eyes have at all occupied themselves In look. lng about her, and seeing the events which Derail peoplo every day, It will appear otherwise. You mnybo living now in elegance nnd luxury, tho petted darling of your father's spacious house without a visible thorn or brier of care to prick you. but It mav not be lone- lie foro you are called on to face lulsfor. tunc. The problem of how to live mav stare you In the face, as it has stared others. " If you aro rloh and well-to-do, you hnvo n great advantage over thoso whose limited means clve them no now- er of choice. Tho destruction of tho poor Is their poverty. A poor clrl can not look about her and say, "There Is this work which Invites me, which I would like, which Is comrenlnl. I wilt take time and prepare myself to enter upon si.- ono uiiiBv uo wnat comes urst lo tin ml whether nr tint I, 1, ond be contented with her wages. On the other hand, the young woman who Is comfortably and pleasantly established can take her time and arm herself against tne uay or necessity by the ac quiring of some useful art, trade, or A DIFFERENCE. COMMUNISM AS DEFINED BY THE LIGHT CORRESPONDENTS. The Rights of Private Property-The Ouestlon of Publle Schools Prlvllegss Accorded by The Constitution, Etc. nillor Ban Antonio Unlit It appears to ine, your correspondent "Stop," who Is dissatisfied with the views expressed by me, docs not com prehend what Communism means, and alms to aocompllsh, what Its direful ef fects would be, nor what was said by me In referenco to tbo subject. Communism means that there shall bo no separate, or Individual property, but that all prop erty shall be In common, and that the earnings of each man shall go Into the common fund nnd bo Jointly shared by the community. Mr. Henry George preached community of property with great zeal, but bis practlco contradicts his theoretic creed, Inasmuch as he pro poses to retain as his Individual property tho $20,000 derived from the sale of his books. Tho fruits of mental labor and toll should faro tho samo as tho fruits of bodily labor and toll, and, If tho latter to bo community property, the for mer should take tho samo course. I ad- Iso "Stop" to bestow furtherstudy upon tho subject of a community of property and especially to consider that Its Inevl- ablo ellect would be to tax tho Industri ous and frugal with the support of tho Idle and prodigal a tremendous dis couragement of Industry and frugality. Stop" has failed to rcfuto a single one of my arguments, or to convict mo of error, and It Is clear ho read my articles hurriedly and superficially. 'I he idea, that publlo schools amount to a quasi Communism Is a splendid dis play of original comicality, which ought obe patented, lty analogy of reasoning, ho would say, tho taxes constitute Com munism, sub modo, because all contri bute to them, though not in equal proportions, and that the machinery for exeoutlng tho laws and the levying of taxes to defray the expenses thereof,amount to Communism diluted form. Tho publlo school system originated with the much de rided Puritans In New England In 1021, nnd has always been defended upon tho ground that education renders ono a bet ter and moro useful citizen. The man with no child has to pay the school tax. the man with ono child has to pay it, and so has the man with a dozen children, but they pay nn ad valorem tax on their property, and tho advan tages of the schools aro not equal to all, as Communism demands. Tho man without children gets no bcncllt from them, the father of one child gets only one-twelfth of the benefit derived from them by tho father of 12 children. Com munism means equal division, not in equality, or disparity., Our constitution secures freedom of speech, but It howhero exonerates men from the abtiso of this privilege. More over,, it secures It to American citizens of birth or adoption, and not to cranks who flock to our shores from foreign na tions to escape the punishment merited by them. Freedom of speech does not mean licentiousness, obscenity, nor im morality. No man lias a right to urge men to commit arson, theft, forgery, and murder, by telling them such acts are commendable, and the statutes against tbem aro barbarous and cruel. Neither has a man n right to urge tbo depriving men of their property In order to parcel It out. Freedom of speech does not screen these, gross assaults on the publlo welfare. As to giving too much notlco to the doings and sayings of the Communists, that Is an opinion, but It la not an argu ment, and It Is simply bosh. The same cry was eohoed and re-echoed when fenco cutting begun. The Tocsin, a Conimunlst sheet, Is published In Dallas, Texas. The advocates of "free grass" aro Communlsts,the enemies offences are full of tho samo deadly taint. "Stop" himself Is a Communist in embryo, solar as I can judge from his drift. The poison of Communism should be counteracted by an antidote. Aixons. AN HONORED VETERAN NO MORE. Death of Mr. Frank L. Paschal, an Historic Landmark of the State, Mr. Frank L.
