A Kivcr Tragedy Recalled.
A timely reminiscence that Sun
day's break-up occasioned calls to
mind the break-npof exac tly -Jo years
before. The freeze then had leen
exceedingly heavy, and when. March
12, ltS. the ieevVit out, it went out
bard. The old bridge wa thrown
out of plumb, and the draw was
badly damaged, so that repairs of
several davs were necessary to get it
back iiitJ working order. While
these were In progress, one day a few
days after the break-up five workmen
were caught on t ae draw by a storm
that swept down the river. Under
the combined onslaught of wind and
water the damaged draw went into
the current, and four of the men suc
ceeded in escaping with bad bruises.
The fifth one, Brnhard Ilamann.
was caught in the debris and his
lower limbr. crushed. His heroic
struggles to keep his head above the
water were witnessed by several per
sons on the bridge who were power
less to aid him. And in a moment
he sank out of sight beneath the
floating ice to rise no more. It was
an accident awful in its suddenness
1 and fatal consequence, and still holds
a place in the memory of many of our

TALK OF CANDIDATES.

lironinc-Other l).-miMTili l"avorite.
The feeling which favors T. J.
Medill. Jr., as the democratic candi
date for mayor, is irrowinir anions
democrats daily and the fact that
the L'nion as the mouthpiece of Mc-
Conochiesim, so promptly expressed
its unqualified disapproval of Mr.
Medill's candidacy has strengthened
the belief that ue is the cry man the
democrats are louking for to lead the
hosts against McConoehie and the re
publican ring. The democracy seems
to look to Mr. Medill as the strongest
available candidate so far suggested
who has not formally declined to M?r
mit the use of his name, and wp
ular impression is that if nominated
his election will be assured. Aid. A.
D. Husing who has also been enthusi
astically spoken of as a candidate for
Hie nomination, would have had a
much larger following had he not in
sisted that he was mt to be a candi
date for the office. In view
of the impression thus created
the democrats are looking to
Medill as the man upon whom the
full strength of the party will
eventually concentrate itself.

The i:im Street l.lnr.
The Elm street branch of the Tri
City railway system, which was ex
tended along Fourteenth avenue last
year more as an accommodation
to the people living up tha,t way
than with the hope on the part of the
company of reaping immediate pecu
niary profit, has grown in hu-dness
until it now takes care of itself. The

conductors on the two lines leading

it is understood, proposes not only
to make the conductors regular, but
