A wishing Tillage Drlvea oat lata lake - Baroau A special from Bay City, Mich., says: Mdch excitement prevails here concern- irig the report that many fishermen have drifted into Lake Huron on an ice-field carried out in Saginaw Bay by the strong : south wind. The fishing village is about fifteen miles northeast of this eity and five miles from land. It is estimated . that 300 men were engaged in spearing fish and the first reports are to the effect , that all were lost, Towara evening sev : eral of the fishermen reached Essexvilie, a suburb of this city, and reported that s 'most of their companions reached the " shore in safety. ' The best authority ob- ' v talnable places the number of . casta--iwava at from twenty to fifty. Those 5 acquainted with the situation say they will reach the shore before the ice passes ' , " outside of Saginaw Bay. In case they do not, there is no hope of their being rescued. -The storv of the disaster, so far as known, is that during the night the wind had driven the ice out towards the lake, taking with it all the fishermen who were on the floe in their shanties num bering about 200 men. They were dis tributed all over the bay for miles. Six of the lost men managed to get to the shore twelve miles east of the river.hav in been on the eastern portion of the ice. Dennis Bonnette, who had his house on the Ice, says he thinks about twenty men got ashore on the east side of the bay, hear Big Creetc. The others will escape if the seas,; which are running mountains high, do not break np the ice. character ever submitted for considera tion between the two countries." Germany aad tne Rah aa. Berlin SDeclal: It la expected that a general law for the suppression of drunk enness will be enacted and put in force in all the States ot the German con federation before the year Is ended. A bill on the subject has been prepared by the Prussian Government and has re ceived the approval of the Emperor, who, from the day he succeeded to the throne, has persistently demanded souse restrictions upon the sale ot intoxi cating .liquors. For nearly three years ' the Government ministers have been engaged in collecting statistics and evtder.ee on the points concerned, and dectslonsaat last arrived at have already been sanctioned by the Bundesrath. The bill decrees the with drawal of saloon licenses and the Impo sition of fines . upon saloons kopDcrs' v. ho encourage persons of Inebriate habits. The drunk ards themselves will be fined If they are poor, so as to prevent them from Indulg ing in the vice of intemperance, and terms of imprisonment are to be im posed in cases where monetary fines would presumably not have the desired effect Exhorter la Trouble.

An interesting law salt that Involves a large amount ot money has just been brought up in Crawford County. A num ber of years ago an aged and eccentric old farmer of considerable wealth died, leaving a will. His numerous heirs, his varied business interests, and his large estates were such that a settlement, ac cording to the will, was a difficult task. Finally compromises were arranged, and a settlement made. Soon after the set tlement Mrs. Mary Rice, of Marion County, claimed that as one of the grand children of the late Robert Kerr she had been omitted from the settlement, and by her attorneys filed motion to open up the decree. This motion, after being carefully considered for six months, has finally been declared In the affirmative. The heirs, in their settlement prior to dropping the will, declined to recognized Mrs. Rice as one of the heirs, but on ac count of her claim effected an outside compromise with her, the Intent of which, she claims, she did not under stand until after she had signed the agreement. The proving herself an heir by Mrs. Rico would secure her about 813,000, as the entire estate approxi mates 8300,000. As the whole proceed ing subsequenfly entered Into with the children, grandchildren and trustee were based upon annulling the will, tnany im portant and far-reaching questions can be seen looming up in the future. Disastrous Break. the excessive rain at Chllllcothe, eaused the canal to break its bank in that city, entertaining a loss of about 830,000. The break is located in the principal part of the city, where the canal bed is some thirty feet higher than the park lake and park, the latter being the old bed of the Scioto River, running into the park lake at the point where the damage was done. The city some years ago constructed a waste weir, the over flow to supply the lake. This was ne cessarily a weak point, and was the first to give way. Beginning there the bank was washed away for a distance of one hundred feet, extending from William Taylor & Co.'s pork packing establish ment down and Including a footbridge below. The canal bed waa washed out ten or fifteen feet deeper than it had been. A block of warehouses built along the opposite bank is placed in great danger of collapsing, because of their undermined foundation. The accident has caused great excitement. The dredge, which has been working on the level, was moored near the washout, and came very nearly being made a total wreck. The question arising oat of this happening Is a perplexing one. The city had the waste weir placed at that point at their own expense. 'Will the State or city have to bear the loss?
