AWFUL FATE FOR CHICAGO.
Dr. Spencer Predicts Its Destruction by
By f?r the most astonishing pnpers
read at the convention of "American
Scientists" at Detroit yesterday - were
thoso bv P:of. Gilbert and vDr. Spencer,
of Washington. Dr. Spencer, by cold,
logical reason, proved that the course of
the lakes were steadily changing. Reck
oniuK a lonir distance iu the future, both
Prof. Gilbert ami Dr. Spencer agreed that
tho Niagara river aud Falls wi license 'to
exist, and that the course of the water
from the lakes will bo over what is now
Chicago toward tho Mississippi river.
Dr. Spencer said:
"It is specially important at Chicago,
because that city stands on a low plain
near tho level of Lake Michigan, and
close by there is a divide so low that tho
waters of Lake Michigan will naturally
lind a discharge to the Mississippi."
The doctor asserted that Detroit would
be tho first to go, and that the overwhelm?
ing disaster at Johnstown;would be as
uothiug compared to the future catastro?
phe, unless the city fathers made prepa
ratious to prevent it. His basis of reck?
oning was that the gorge at Niagara was
forming at the rate of a foot a year, and
disaster was certain.

SUICIDE AT DAMASCUS.
Abiugdou, Va., Aug. 17.--The boily of
Mrs. Baker Neal, ot Damascus, Va., was
found suspended from a limb near her
home this morning. She was unconscious
when fouu'l and died soon after. Mrs.
Neal had been unsound mentally for
some time, and had been at home from
the asylum ouly a few days. The family
had kept watch over her for fear she
might kill herself.
HOW THE STJN VIEWS IT.
The personnel of the ticket nominated
by the Virginia Democratic, convention
at Roanoke is unexceptionable. Hon. }.
H?ge Tyler, the nominee for governor, is
an honest citizen of Southwestern Vir?
ginia. He is n successful farmer, a coal
mini owner who is held in high esteem
by his employes, aud as a legislator was
active and efficient in this discharge of
his duties. Hon. Edward Echols, of
Staunton, the ncminee for lieutenant
governor, is an able aud [successful law?
yer aud man of business, and has served
with credit in the Virginia legislature.
Hon. A. J. Montague, of Danville, the
nominee for attorney-general, is one of
the ablest men of his age in the State.
He recently resigned the United States
attorney ship for the western district of
Virginia to become a candidate for the
nomination for attorney-general, and the
result of the ballot shows that he did not
miscalculate his [strength, though con
tendiug against several able aud popular
