To show that these appoint

the fact that three of the present

LOOK FOE L0WSTAGE
AND RIVER TO FREEZE
Moore Freakish Turns Expected From
The Ohio This Winter.
EvanBVlllo, Ind., Deo. 4. The Ohio
river during the past year has been
"cutting up" and acting freakish
and now dire things are being pre
dicted by tbe local rivermen for the
winter months. Last, spring the
river began things by-.overflowing
and giving the Ohio valley one o the
worst floods known for years.- Thiei
WRS followed by a short period of
low stage water, in June; By the
first of July, however, a fine floating
atage came along and. continned all
tbrought the Bummer months and
up until tbe first of October, at one
time during that period tbe Ohio
coming very near overflowing its
Such a fine Btage of tbe river dur
ing the Bummer monthB of years be
fore could not be recalled in the
memory of the oldest men on the
river, the 'Ohio at that time of the
year usually begin very low and,
compelling the boatB to tie tip. But,
tbiB year the old familiar sandbars
have not shown their faces so muob
Since the middle of October tbe
river has been at a very low Btage,
when there Bhoule b&ve been high
water, and tbe prospects are that it
will continue for some timeto eome.
Tvis has led to several predictions
by local rivermen as to what the
river wlli do the coming winter
All ezpeot a low stage to continue
until spring. A&d as all the predic
tions by amateur forecasters tell of a
hard winter, the rivermen are look
ing for tbe river to freeze over en
acoonst of the low stage and to give'
the small, boy and Bkating enthu
BiasticB a perold of ice that they
have not enjoyed lor years. Steam
boat navigation will also be tied tip,

Dump The Accused Jurist Is
Present at The Trial
Washington, Dec. 4. Ohie
interest in the Archbald im
peachment trial before the sen
ate today centered in the first
article of the charges, in which
it is alleged that Judge Archbald
exerted influence upon officers of
the Erie railroad when they had
a literago case pending in his
court to compel them to give op
tions toEJward J. Williams, of
Dunmore, Pa., on its portion of
the Katy-Did refuse coal heaps,
owned throuah its subsidiary
company, the. Hillside Goal &
Williams admitted on the stand
today that Archbald had been in
terested with him in a' deal for
the Katy-Did dump which is near
Ssranton, Pa., and would have
profited from the sale of the
property. Williams declared,
however, that Archbald had uotli
ing to do with getting the option
further than to recommend him

of the Mason and Dixon line are
up in arms- and are declaring;
that the sectional problem must
be solved. Due to the fact for a
time the. South has had more
members in the hcufte on the
democratic side than the North,
the S)uth naturally has had the
best of it in committee assignn
ments. Since the recent landslide the
figures show that tho North will
have more democrats in the
houses, by a good majority, than
the Squth. In this division
Kentucky, as well as Maryland,
Misouri and West Virginia, are
counted as Southern states. The
Northerners say that wheu ib
comes to parceling out committee
places March 4, they will demand
a readjustmen. The Southern
members assert they will be able
to" hold the choice positions they
