Chicago, March, 24. During the pnst
"1 hours over eight inches of enow fell
in the city, the heaviest fall for the
month of March in the history of the
feather bureau. It melted almost ns
raoidlv as it fell and with the wind blow
ing 52 miles nn hour, pedestrians found
hard work to get around. Ihe storm
came from Texas, passed over Kentucky,
and then passed to the Western Ohio
valley. Chicago was its northerly limit
Here the flood waters broke with de
moralizing effect. The DesplaineB river
is nine feet in depth at Riverside. Rail
road tracks parallel to the Illinois and
Michigan canal are almost covered with
water. At Bridgeport the Chicago river
rose a foot, due to the overflow from the
Few parts of Illinois, Eastern Iowa
and Southern Wisconsin escaped the
storm. Twelve inches of snow fell at
Eockford and Freeport, and 14 inches at
Galva. Rock river at Milan is threat
ening damage to farms from a sudden
rise. The Mississippi rose eight inches
at Davenport. At this place the snow
etorm was one of the heaviest on record
for March. Over six inches' of damp
snow covers the ground, and it will add
greatly to the volume of water in the
Mississippi when it melts.
Milwaukee reports the storm one of
the worst of the winter. Over sis inches
of snow fell and seriously interfered with
street-car traffic. Many lines had to be

Alton fears a serious flood, the Miss
issippi there being 15 feet above low
water mark. Riverside, Summit, Lyons
and other small towns and .villages west
of Chicago on the bank of the Desplaines
are flooded from the overflow of the
river. Many of the residents of these
places are unable to leave their liomes
except in rowboats or on rafts. Not
withstanding the heavy overflow it is
not thought the losses in the vicinity
will be very heavy, as many residents
had prepared for the flood.

Oorhetta Chances Jietter.
Washington, March 24. The senate
committee on privileges and elections
has received the brief in the claim cf
Henry W. Corbett, of Oregon, to a 6eat
in the Benate It argues that equality of
representation of the several states in
the federal senate was an essentail fea
ture in the scheme of the government
provided by the framera of the constitu
tion, and that this equality is destroyed
when any state has but one senator.
The appointment of Mr. Corbett is held
to be strictly within the terms of the
constitution providing ior appointments
by the governor if vacancies occur by
resignation or otherwise, and many
authorities and precedents are cited to
sustain this view.
As to the recent failure of the Oregon
legislature to organize and elect a sen
ator, the brief says:
"Whatever equity there may be in
holding the state responsible for the
malfeasance or nonfeasance of a regu
larlv organized branch of the state gov
ernment, we earnestly contend that it
would be the grossest injustice to hold
the state responsible for the nonfeasance
of individuals who had been chosen to
represent certain districts in the legis
lature, but who did not qualify as legis
lators, and were a minority of those en
titled to sit in ttie house in any event."
Christians Forced to Ketreat.
Canea. March 24. Turkish troops
have made an attack to revictual a block
house at Malaxa. They were attacked
and repulsed by Christians who pursued
convoy of provisions to the environs of
Suda bay. The Turkish warship then
pened fire upon the Christiausand com
pelled them to retreat.

Chicago, March 24. Congress will in
all probability be called on nt nn early
date by a committee representing the
sugar-beet growers of the country, and
asked to give some measure of protec
tion and encouragement to this new and
profitable industry. Nothing would suit
the Western farmers who have already
engaged in this form of agriculture bet
ter than the creation of a tariff, if not
less than cents a pound on all sugar,
aud a reciprocal policy with other sugar
This is the opinion of C. H. Dietrich,
president of the National bank of Hast
ings, Neb., who is here and is one of the
most enthusiastic promoters of the sugar-beet
industry. Mr. Dietrich points
to the fact that more than one-half of
the world's sugar crop is now being pro
duced from beets as an indication of the
tremendous size of the industry and the
right that it has to demand considera
tion from the government. He notes
that there is not a single sugar-producing
country in the world that has not
been aided by its government in devel
opment of the beet sugar industry. The
countries which have made special ad
vancement in this line are Germany,
Belgium, Austria, France, New Zealand,
Denmark and Argentina.
Slight Gain for Hunter.
Frankfoht, March 24. On joint bal
lot for Uuited States senator today Dr.
Hunter, the Republican nominee, came
within two votes of election. The first
ballot was as follows :
Hunter, G7: Blackburn, silver Dem
ocrat, 49: Davis sound-money Demo
crat, 11 : necessary to choice, 69.
Tyler, Boyle, Stone and Buckner got
scattering votes. The vote shows a
slight gain for Hunter, but it is not be
lieved he can win now. The silver Dem
ocrats announced with boldness they
would vote for Bradley if at any time
they saw by doiug so they could elect
him. The general assembly adjourned
without taking a second ballot.

Editor Morrison of Worthington, Ind.,

Annie Stehle, 2025 Cottage Grove Ave.,

never left her and felt tired aud weary,

Captured by ItiNurgeuts:
IIavana, March 24. The insurgents
have captured Holguin, in Santiago de
Cuba. The town is a very important
one, and the news of its loss has cast a
great gloom over official circles. It is re
ported that the victorious insurgent
forces were those under the command of
Calixto Garcia, who has been operating
with great vigor in Eastern Cuba.
If asked the question "Have you got a
stomach?" it would be safe on general
principles, to answer "Yes." But, if
you are sure of it, that is, if you ever
feel any distress after eating or any
pains of whatever description in the
region of the etomach, you have got
something else besides an ordinary
stomach ; in other words you have got a
diseased stomach. The stomach is a
powerful muscle, and the proper remedy
for a tired muscle is rest. Try the Shak
er Digestive Cordial, for this product
not only contains digested food, which
will nourish the system without any
work on the part of the diseased organs,
but it aids the digestion ot other foods
as well. You can test its value in your
case for the trifling sum of 10 cents.
