His name will be presented
to McKinley for the place and
it is believed he had this in mind some
weeks ago when he announced that

Friday by the heavy rains in Indiana.
Every line north of the Ohio has trains
scattered all ovrr Indiana between
Louisville, Chicago, SL Louis and Cincinnati.

Southwestern had no trains in
or out. "The Big Four train
from Chicago, which is due at 7:30
a. m. arrived at one p. m. The Pennsylvania
only succeeded in getting in
one train, and the St. Louis line's service
was badly demoralized. There
were five washouts on the Pennsylvania,
but they were repaired by 5
o'clock. The Big Four had a washout
between North Vernon and Greens-burg,
but all trains will run regularly
Saturday. The Louisville, New
Albany and Chicago has a wash-,
out near Bloomington and two of
its trains arc tied on the Pennsylvania
and Big Four in a vain effort to reach
Louisville over those tracks. The Baltimore
&. Ohio Southwestern has three

repaired in time for the movement of
trains in the morning. The Pennsylvania
startod out a Chicago train Friday
The Ohio was rising Friday night at
the rate of four inchos an hour, with
IS feet 4-10 inches on the falls.
