his family. Mr. Midgloey who has beeoon in
the railread business a number of years,
was suddenly prostrated about elx weeks
ago while at work in his ofiee in Chicago.
The attack was the result of a case of grip,
and not of overwork, Mr. Midgley thinks.
Hae was advised to take a rest and a journey.
and the private car of the vice-president of
the St. Paul road was placed at the dis
posal of himself and his family. They
went west over the southern route by way
of Denver, and before he reaohed the latter
pleae, Mr. Midglsy had begun to feel the
beneticial effects of the change of air and
freedom from basiness eare. The trip was
continuod through to California and teSaes
to Oregon, from whioh point the party

aounsed that he would never start a horse

that Lamplighter was to be fouled and in

in the race it lends color to the belief that
something was wrong.

that he annoanced the fact before the race

the matter was so good, or he thought so
well of it. that he refrained from plasing

lives of the seceding distilleries view their
action in a different way this morning.
They say that they took poseession of their
property as any owner mieht do waen the
rent was not paid, but have no intention
of abandoning the t, ust. In fact, they
admit that they were bluffing yesterday,
aund say that everything will be arranged
The Woolners and trust people had a

doore and both parties agreed to wait and
watch, leaving the matter to the attorneys
for the a resent. One of the five eases will
be selected as a test and it will be on this
that the fight will be made. If the trust is
eucceseful it will take the five distilleries,
and if not the trust loses five bouses.
Woolner says the withdrawing hkuses will
be continued in eperation just as nuder the
