ITS CHIEF JUSTICE
Unprecedented Proceeding In Illi
nois Tribunal Crows Out
of Carter Case.
Springfield, June 12. A proceeding
unprecedented in the history of the
supreme court of Illinois and probably
without parallel in the history of jur
isprudence throughout the country
developed here yesterday when mem
bers of the court tiled condemnatory
protest directed against 15. I). Magru
der, whose1 term as chief justice ex
pired with the opening of the present
term, although he retains his seat on
The protest is against the action of
Justice Magruder in filing a dissent
ing opinion, with the court in vaca
tion, before the opinion of the ma
jority of the bench on the question
had been filed, thus permitting it to
be used as a campaign document to
assist in the defeat of Justice Carter
for reelection to the supreme bench.
The case in question is that in
which the court passed on the con
stitutionality of the act of the recent
general assembly in redisricting the
Fourth supreme judicial district. The
majority of the court decided that the
apportionment as made should stand.
Justice Magruder dissented. The de
ciWIt'm of ' the cr nrt. was announced
orally at the time, but the written
opinion was deferred until the pres
ent term of court. While court was
in vacation, it is said. Justice Magru
der filed his dissenting opinion.
The protest, filed and made a part
of the record in the case is as fid
lows: '"It appearing to the court that Mr.
Justice Magruder. while chief justice
of this court, caused his dissenting
opinion in this case to be filed during
vacation before this June term, with
out the knowledge or authority of this
court, and in advance of the filing of
the. opinion of the court in the case,
but while the same was in course of
preparation and while an election was
pending, which said dissenting opin
ion was liable to influence, it is order
ed by the court that said dissenting
opinion so improperly filed be strick
en from the files of this court; but
leave is given to file the same now,
this being the proper time, with the
opinion of the majority of the court."

Fate of a Michigan Voting Woman

Owosso, Mich.. June 12. Miss Min
nie Himberg. a pretty IS-year-old girl
who kept a midnight appointment on
Saturday with an unknown friend and
received for her kindness a cruel lxat
Ing, Is still in a serious condition. Her
beauty, for which she was famed all
over the south part of the city, is
forever destroyed. Across her face,
neck and shoulders' and chest are
burns, made with carbolic acid, each
the width of a digit, as if fingers
seared wri.h acid were drawn over her,
to leave a lasting Impress. Physicians
say the scars will always be carried
by the girl.
Miss Himberg insists that her as
sailant was a woman perhaps two
but little credence Is given that
story. She is very popular with the
young men in her set, and the most
plausible theory Is that one of the less
favored suitors took this hideous way
of getting even with her and the more
fortunate suitor. One reason why this
theory Is advanced is the rumor that
she was soon to be married. The fact
that she was gone from home almost
two hours lends color to it.

SEVEN TOLL GATES
Hecause the County Commissioners
Would Not Purchase
Indianapolis, June 12. A mob of
loO farmers armed with guns, pistols
and axes, raided seven toll gates In
DearlM.rn count at night, cutting
away the poles and nearly demolishing
three of the toll houses. No resistance
was offer! by the toll-gate keepers
and all of them promisel not to at
tempt to collect any more tolls.
The destmction of the toll gates Is
the result of a refusal by the county
commissioners to buy the roads at the
expense of the county and throw them
open to the public. They now belong
to private corporations, some of which
have refused to sell. No attempt at
Aisguise was made by members of the
mob. but it Is not probable that any
of thm will bo prosecuted, though

BUYS BIG BLOCKS TOE HIMSELF
And Knows Others Who Do Likewise
But Never Liooks Beyond
Ills Nose, Perhaps.
London, Juno 12. Lord Rothschild
was interviewed by an Associated
Press representative on the financial
situation in the United States, lie said:
"It is no good looking further than
your nose In these matters. The de
preciation in stock values Is not caused
by European selling for the very good
reason that Europe has scarcely any
American securities to sell. Yester
day's sales in London were almost en
tirely on New York orders. Amster
dam sold slightly, but not nearly as
much as was attributed to that city
by the dispatches. v
Our SecuritUa Are All Right.
"When an American wants to sell
he has got intothe habit of sending
his order here and leaving to the ar
bitrage houses. There Is absolutely no
feeling of distrust In Europe over the
financial conditions in America. Only
a fool would say that the financiers
here are making wliat you call a dead
set against American securities. What
do I think of the future? Well, the
best answer I can give- is this." And
Ixrd Rothschild handed over a stock
ticket showing that he had just pur
chased r(H shares of a Cnited Statesan
And Thar Are Others.
"That, of course. Is only a drop in
the bucket, but I may tell you that
one of the wealthiest capitalists I
know yesterday invested f'JOO.lHMl in
American securities arid he has put
another 200,N) into tpem again this
morning. That sounds large, but It is
nothing 'compared with'tlie selling or
ders which come here from New York.
At such a period as this the transac
tions of even the largest investors have
a small effect upon the market In
which the speculator figures so large
ly." Explains the Recent Shrinkage.
Lord Rothschild's explanation of the
recent serious shrinkage In values is
this: "Speyers went iiito street r:il-waj-s.

British securities, anjl I nni told

is that some of the largest capitalists

m FURTHER BREAKS IN LEVEES
People Making Themselves as Com
fortable as Possible, and Wait
ing for Dry Land.
St. Louis, June 12. The flood is de
clining very slowly today, but with
falling rivers above and no indications
of rain the prospect for relief to the
territory in this vicinity and north
that is covered with a great body of
water seems near.
East St. Louis. Jure 12. That the
crisis of the flood situation has passed
so far as this city is concerned is
generally accepted as a fact by the
citizens. Since the disastrous break
in the Illinois Central levee the flood
has made no dangerous breaks, al
though a portion of the Baltimore and
Ohio embankment gave way and the
flood area was further increased by
seepage. Water continues to seep
through Broadway in various places,
flooding the low land between that
street and Missouri avenue, the next
street north, with from two to six
feet of water. This section of the
flood extends between the two streets
for miles, interrupted occasionally by
View or the Flooded UUtriit,
With the stress of the situation re
lieved it is possible to make a survey
of the flooded district. A trip of sev
eral miles shows only a picture of Kan
sas City and Topeka over again an
endless vista of deserted seeond stories
of houses, or perhaps just thei- roofs,
with the perspective heightened here
and there by brick public buildings
and factories looming secure above the
waters below. In some of the larger
buildings people are sti'l living. sul
sisting on food brought to them in
skiffs, but the picture as a whole is
one of disaster and the calm which
tells of its completeness.
I'roperty I.oaa Not Vet Kttl mated.
No one can be found with anything
like a definite idea of the property
loss. Vague mention of "millions of
dollars" was the nearest even the best
Informed citizens could come to it.
There was a general disposition, how
ever, to accept minimum reports of
loss of life, rather than the stories
originating in the excitement of the
moment when the flood poured in. One
prominent undertaker averred that
there had been no loss of life direct
ly in the flood.
Looking After the ltefagee.
The work now is that of caring for

would be more comfortable at night
had they more bedding. With the sup
ply being recovered from submerged
houses by their owners, and the con

and St Louis, it is believed that this
need will be supplied by tonight.
East St. Louis. June 12. In view of
the want and suffering caused by the

BISHOP MAKES ATTACK
ON UNIONISM "WAYS
Lincoln, Neb.. June 12. In his com
mencement oration at Nebraska AVes
leyan university Bishop II. V. War
ren. of Colorado, discussed the strike
question at some length. He described
dictation by unionism as constituting:
a detestable oligarchy, although ap
proving of organized labor as a general
propsition. He said:
"There have been cities as readily
held up as if occupied by a foreign
army, and nearly every industry
brought to a standstill by the attitude
of men numbering one in 100. All
this is un-American, and must inevita
bly go down. For any body of men
to erect themselves up as dictators t
a whole community, is setting up an
oligarchy as detestable as that of Nora
and Robespierre. The gool sense ami
experience of the American people that
has faced a thousand difficulties will
eventually surmount this one."
