If | tho river falls , at the same rate as in : 1692. when there was a heavy flood, the levee will be covered for a month yet. The heavy pressure of water against Broadway In East St. Louis will probably finally destroy a large section .of, that street. In some places portions Jit the street have caved in and to-night a large section near Eighth street ' went down, but the street car tracks still hold the street from giving ' way entirely. Even if it does break"' the result will be simply, that the water Is let through to Missouri avenue, a parallel street one block north, the sooner. The water Is 'seeping through Broadway steadily and in large quantities and must finally completely inundate all that portion of the city south" of Missouri avenue. . KANSAS, CITY.

ROCHESTER, Ind.; June 12.-Last night at midnight an express car attached to the eastbound train on the Erie Railway was entered by robbers Just outside of Englewood, who completely looted it. The robbers threw undesirable express pack ages along the road all the way from Hammond to Rochester. The crew'of a freight train followed the express car and 'discovered the packages beside the. track and notified the officers at Huntington, where the express car door was forced open. As this was done one of the rob bers dashed out, firing two ehots, and made his escape. The police then made their way into the car and found two other robbers hiding behind some packages. They were placed under arrest. In all the pockets in their clothing they had valuable goods stored away. Every package in'the carwlth the exception of one, had been pried open. This package contained about $7000 worth of. valuables. The crew of the freight train picked up goods to the amount of $4000..

Fronvanother source it was learned that when Senor Knrique received his formal instructions from tbe President the latter made no mention of Coney and seemingly was oblivious to the fact that he was about to replace a man who had once saved • his life. This fact is accepted by the Mexican colony as Indicative of some unpleasantness between the President and Coney and it is thought It led to his re call. At the home of Coney on Post etreet,. a servant informs those who call to Inquire of the whereabouts of the for mer Mexican representative that his fam ily Is our and she does not know In what part of the world Coney Is at the present time. Meanwhile the stories about him continue to grow. In fact, the colony Is talking of nothing else and wildly specu lating on the real cause for his removal. Simultaneously with the receipt of the. news that Coney was in New -York were circulated ugly stories regaining his al leged " mismanagement of the consular business here, but If there is any founda tion for these stories the new Consul General says he has' no knowledge of them. When asked yesterday regarding Coney, Senor Enrique said that he knew nothing about his predecessor and that when the office was turned over, to him by Del Past) Its affairs appeared to be ail right, j i :;v-. • . STORIES ARE CIRCULATED. When the news was first spread that Coney had been recalled it was generally supposed that the President of the'south ern republic had tleclded to give him some other and more important station, for it had been known, or at least supposed, for years here that Coney and the President were very close friends, a relationship that had grown out of the fact that years ago, before Coney had entered the con sular service, he had saved the life of the President. It is no secret In local consu lar circles that several attempts had been made by Mexican residents of this city during the past ten years to have Coney recalled, but these appeals seemingly met with no favorable consideration from President Diaz. It was apparent that Coney was well entrenched In hfs position despite his unpopularity here and it was generally conceded that his term of office would last as long as President Diaz ad ministered the political affairs of the republic Consequently, when the news reached here that the Consul General had been recalled it created no end" of sur prise, which only abated for a tfme when the report went out that another and higher position awaited Coney when he returned, to Mexico and met the Presi dent. , • -. - It is now learned that the former Con sul General did not return to Mexico, as ordered, but hastened off to New York, where he has since remained. Why he failed to return to Mexico and what prompted his sudden leave taking are matters that have stirred up considerable gossip in the Mexican colony and caused many disagreeable rumors to be circu lated. GOES TO NEW YORK. What has become of A. K. Coney, for mer Consul General of Mexico at this port? What ia his political fate? These questions are greatly agitating the mem bers of the local Mexican colony, who are yet to obtain an explanation for the sud den recall and supplanting of Coney, who presided* over the consulate In this city for eighteen years. , Nearly three months have passed since Coney suddenly left the city. Not the slightest intimation of his going away was given to his friends, who first learned of his departure after a man named Del Paso had taken temporary charge of the consulate. A week later the announce ment came. from the City of Mexico that a new Consul General had been appointed to the local post and would soon start northward for the city. It was then that Inquiries were Inaugu rated regarding tbe removal of Coney and the story was circulated that he had been recalled. Later another statement was given out by a member of his family that Coney was to receive the appoint ment of Consul General to New York, but this has since been denied. Meanwhile it had developed that Coney did not return to the City of Mexico and for a time the local colony was at a loss for a sugges tion as to his whereabouts. There will be a meeting of Republican citizens, of the Forty-first Assembly Dis trict u.is evening at Steimke Hall on Oc tavia street, near Union. This -meet ing will not be held under the aus pices of the United Republican League. The Forty-first is a remarkably indepen dent district. At one election the district may give a Republican candidate for Mayor 1000 majority and at the next elec tion give a Democrat a majority of 500. The impression now exists in the minds of many Republicans of the Forty-first that A. Ruef may use t«.e prestige of the United Republican League to advance the interests oi Mayor Schmltz for another term, hence there Is a strong- sentiment In favor of TJreperving the independence of the district organization.

These 100 members to be elected in l&M, together with twenty hold over Senators, will elect a tSenator of the United States for the term of six years, beginning March 4. 1905. It will be readily perceived that Senator Bard has ample time to form his conclusions regarding a candidacy for another term. He is now out for a vacation, which he has fairly earned, and does not desire to discuss politics. Tne Senator's adopted daughter, Miss Morgan, is an English lady.

It was* to have been acted upon last night; but meantime there had been opposition from certain garters and the proponents of the resolu tion paw that before they eou!d carry it they would- have an open fight before the club.

The effect of excessive smoking shown by such symptoms as heart pains, heartburn, smotherin? spells, shortness of breath, flat* terinr and palpitation, is most serious. If rour heart is in any way affected you should at once begin the use of Dr. Miles' Heart Cure which enriches the blood, regulates the heart's action and improves the circulation. "I am a. local newspaper man and have been an inveterate smoker since my boyhood. A little over a year ago I first "noticed symptoms cf heart trouble, palpita- tion and acute pains and a peculiar, I might tay, indescribable feeling across my chest .Local physicians said I had 'tobacco heart' I quit smoking for * while and took regular dote, of digitalis and belladona with some .relief but the same old symptoms were still there. A triend of mine here recently died of what the doctor said was valvular disease of the heart. Knowing that his svmptoms were similar to mine I felt that my 'time too was limited, although I am still a young man, in my thirty-ninth year. In Skillman & Stone's drug store here Dr. Miles' New .Heart Cure was recommended. I began taking it and I can positively state that its effect is marvelous. I have just finished my third bottle and feel rike a 'kid' and believe I am cured. This letter is the spontaneous utterance of one who wishes to thank you for benefits received." — Wm. N.
