DE3 MOINES, Aug.. 16. (Special.) Th
heavy rains of the ast two days in central
Iowa have caused alarm again along. the
rivers. The Des Moines and Raccoon river
rose about eight feet the past day and a
half and are still rising steadily. Thla has
caused some overflow of the lowlands lying
along the river and several families havs
begun to. get ready to move out on short
notice, fearing a repetition of the floods ot
a few wwekg ago. It la certain that the Des
Molnea. river will rlse still, higher because
reports from above ar to the effect that the
heavy rains la the central part of the etsts
have caused the smaller atreama to become
rivers. The fact that the ground la ao
fully saturated with water makes It easy for
the river to rise high again. The clear
ing up of the previous flood here has not
been fully eompleted. Some famtllea were
still living in tenta until this week, when
the city ordered all the tenta returned.
The fact that there has besn no serious
Illness in the flooded district I due en
tirely to the care taken by th city officials
In having the cleaning done and disinfection
of all the pools of water left standing.
Assssaslsg Candidate Early.
Announcements are already made or aome
of the candidacies for next year before the
republican state convention. The announce
ment baa been made of several who aspire
to be auperlntendent of public Instruction.
Prof. J. F. Rlggs of Stgourney Is announced
and It la certain that Prof. A. W. Btuart ot
Ottumwa and -Prof. Storm of Storm Lak
will be In the race, besides a number of
others. N. S. Ketchum of Marshalltown,
who waa defeated for railroad commis
sioner, states, that he will be a candidate
again next year. Colonel D. A. Palmer ot
Washington, the present Incumbent, Is also
likely to be a candidate and Mr. Blake
more of Taylor county, who waa in the
race this year. The two plaoea on tha ticket
will probably be the only ones over which
there can be any controversy, aa the three
other placea will doubtless be filled by ac
clamation. During the coming week the republicans
will nominate a candidate for congress In
the Second district and the democrats In
the Eighth district. The republican con
vention will be at Clinton on Wednesday,
with four active candidates William Hoff
man. Muscatine: F. W. Ellis. Clinton: O.

Democratic Platform Queer.
The democrats of Polk county this after

nated a county ticket, after adopting a plat-
rorm tnat is a queer mixture of state
ments and assertions. The platform con
tains over 1,000 words, and renews the
time-honored allegiance of the democratr
of Polk county to "their time-honored al
legiance to democracy as a leaal and eth

tne last two republican national adminis
trations, express a firm and" abiding con
viction the people will yet "wake to the
full and ccmplete realisation of the truth
fulness and the availability or our position
as a party on all public questions," refer to
the fact that the republicans after their
success in 1896 were forced to give the
people more money as tha democrat had
demanded, and say the democratlo party can
stand it If the people can stand It to "wait
for the eventual outcome of the gold stand

The arrival of the ship was considered

soon. The movement Itself be could not
very clearly explain for the reason thnt :?
hla own advices were very meager and

bombardment by the rebel ships without
due notice. There are no important Amer .
lean Interests existing at this place. Busi
ness Is at a standstill.
On the 21st I called again on the gov-.,

consignment of arms and ammunition and
would immediately advance agalnat the ''
enemy. To my question, "Do you know
of any antagonism against the foreign con- ,
suls or merchants by the lower classes of

the statement that a man-of-war '
in the harbor now wasmost aveicom and
necessary as It prevented a bombardment
