tcrday without result
Debris and

complish anything
Tho situation licio was Interesting
in the cxtrcmo today Tho city wns
pal stricken and men with blanched
face rushed back and foilli scarcely
conscious of their net ons The alarm
mav bo unfounded but nevcilhecss
itolU and the condillou of the
river seems to augur ill for tho en

of tho havoc w rought by tho sti earn
above aud a tcrilblo catastrophe

of tho moment than the actual de

sibly could Ono tumor to the ef
fect that tho river would cut a pas
sage for itself through thu high banks
north of tho city gave rise to a great
deal of apprehension
The rivers course Is seriously ob

nowrcaoicil to within a shoit dis
tance of tho dam and tho probable
turning of the course of tho steam
upon tho citycms so plausible that
ccry oi became even more paulc
Hundreds of teams started yestc
day to move the effects of mc
chants out of tlio way of possible
danger and Hnd30 and Central
streets were choked with wagons
loaded down with merchandise In
many instances theso wagons wero
filled to such an extent that the con
tents spilled over tho sides and ends
and the scene was one of indescriba
ble confusion Toil ay not a
building in tho business portion of
tho city is occupied Both the
Lumbermans and First National
banks moved this afternoon and the
higher por Ions of the city aro fairly
congested with the enormous amount
of material that has been stored there
for safety

tho water in many instances trickled

No tobacco inspector for this mar

Iips assumed a inoit complicated
phase with liitlo assurance of what
the futuie outcomo will be For
tin co days tho brokers and ware
housemen have balloted andinvau
ably tho vote was a tie between
Messrs J C Pijicr and J T Myles
Mr PlMr being tho iment inuutn
bout The biokers aie for Mr Piper
and tho warehousemen for Mi
Myles The warehousemen are eu
lilcd to four voves iu the elecion of
nn inspector and so are tho brokers
Whatever number of votes the ware
housemen have tho brokers arc also
entitled to no more no less Hence
when tho biokers voted colidly Tor
Mr Piper and the wuiehousemcn for
Mr Myles the lesult was n tie
Yesterday it became known thrt
one of tho waiehouscmcn had changed
over and would vote for Mr Piper
When the other tlnvc heard this they
declined to take any park in the elec
tion Mr Piper being elected by the
Tboro 6ecms to be two sides to
the quesiion A prominent tobacco
in m who was for Mr Piper stated to
naiN lepreseulalivo this rooming
A tobacco inspector is apjwintetl

1G pounds of tobacco that shall con
stiiiitc a fcir sample of each and
evciy iialily of tobacco contained iu
that hogshead A buyer always
buys by the sample hetico it is veiy
imperative thai the sample
shall show just Joxaetly wuat
kind of tobacco Is to be purchased
nnd for this leason the inspector is
lcquircd to execute n good bond of
ftom 3000 to 10000 rcndciing
him and his bondsmen responsible for
any unfair representation ho may
make in inspecting a hogshead To
illustinto it if ho scuds a sample

Now Sins Ho Did Not Kill
The case against Town Marshal
Linn of ltrooklyn III charged with
killing Miles llradshaw alias Light
ning Hug is set for today at Me
The case against John Lemlcy nnd
Hart Linn father of tho town mar-
shal will coino up as soon as the ono I
against tho latter is disposed of
At the examining trial Lcmley
who Is a well known saloon keeper
test I lied Hint he licnrd surcains of n
woman in distress on the night lien
Ladd was murdered and that ho
shot and supposed he had killed
According to reports however
when lie went before the grand jury
a few days ago ho said he desired to
change his former evidence and thnt
he had nothing to do with the mur
der ot Ladd Accorditig to the
statement of people from Illinois he
now claims that his first testimony
wns given In order to save old man
Linns ticck Ho said before the
grand jury it is alleged that on the
uiglit o tho killing Hart Linn came
to his house aud informed him that
ho had shot Hen Ladd nnd that the
body was lying near Ids house He
then asked Lcmey to go out and
help him carry it away iu order to di
vert suspicion and after this was
done asked him to swear him Linn
out of it
If reports nro true Lemlcy told the
grand jury that ho and Liuu wcro
good Odd Fellows and that he swore
he ki led Ladd simply to extricate his
friend The grand jury then indicted
the whole lay out aud they are now
iu lull at Metropolis
Tlio murder occuned last May
one Sunday night Hart Linn was
living wffii a notorious woman named
Moll Edvnrds und his son Hob was
keeping the womans half sister
Ladd wnulso au associate of the
EdwsrdtiVivmau and Linn feared
that lie would murry her To pre
vent this it is supposed that he killed
Ladd Lemleys later statements if
true will at least send him to the
penitentiary it is thought There
has been n general revival of interest
in tho case and what the outcome will
be is left to conjecture
