Rose Bcrghold's Father Throws
New Light on the Chicago
Her Companion Believed to Have
Been an Old Family
Chicago, May I.— New light was to
day thrown on the tragic death of Hose
Berghold, who was found in a room at
the Southern hotel with her throat cut
from ear to ear. The arrival of the girl's
father, Capt. Bertchold. who is a mem
ber of the New York police force, gave
to the police additional evidence in the
case. Capt. Berghold said that the
young woman had left home April 12,
and he had not since known her where
abouts until the notice of her death iv
'•She wrote us a letter the day after
she left, telling us not to worry: that
she had decided to support herself,"
testified the captain. She took with
her $1,000, which she had on deposit in
a savings bank."
The fact that only §22 was found in
the woman's effects lead the police to
believe that her consort has disappeared
with the greater portion of the Sl,ooo.
Capt. Berghold is firm in the belief that
his (laughter was murdered for her
money. In substantiation of his opin
ion the captain nave in detail a descrip
tion of the man who has hitherto been
known as Alexander, and in whose
company Rose Berghold went to the
Southern hotel.
"1 have ever reason to believe that
this man is none other than William
Alexander Cornell, who has been a
friend ot my family for years. He is an
attorney at "l 7 East One Hundred and
Thirty-fifth street. New York. He was
a schoolmate of tny son and had eaten
at my table countless number of times.
L never suspected that an attachment
existed between him and my daughter,
nor ao 1 believe any member of my
family thought so, but the latter devel
opments have shown to the contrary.
1 firmly believe that he is concerned in
my daughter's death now." •
Though the police do not ignore the
fact that the girl may have committed
suicide, they arc making extra efforts to
find Cornell. Capt. Berghold and his
son-in-law, J. M. Willett-s, took the
body of the girl back to New York
this afternoon.

Water Very Neap the 1882
Flood Mark at Emerson
St. Louis, May I.— Another foot of
rise In the river and more flooded vil
lages on the East side; a collapsed ware
house, which resulted in one death,
and a prospect for a repetition
of a year ago. All this tells
the story of the high water here tonight.
The river at G o'clock this evening
showed a rise of a fraction of an inch
over a foot since. last night and the
water is still creeping up on the. gauge.
There is every probability that by to
morrow night the danger mark, thirty
two feet, will be reached. There are
two causes, however, of the high water
which greatly lessen the danger of
breaking embankments. Most of the
high water now in the river is due
to purely local rains between here and
Alton. A dam at Hermann, Mo., keeps
back much of the Missouri river water,
which would otherwise make a still
higher rise. The raging torrent of the
Ohio at Cairo also tends to keep the
water this side of the Ohio's mouth
back, and, while this, of course, will
prolong the period of high water, yet it
prevents the swift currents which are
so disastrous to embankments and
levees. There is a probability.hovvever.
that the water will be by this means
kept here until the rise above reaches
here, and that is what causes moßt ap
Building* Washed Away.
Up too o'clock this evening the wafer
had caused the abandonment of the
greater portion of East Carondalet. The
telegraph office of tho St. Louis con
necting railway was wrecked tliis morn
ing, and several small buildings were
washed away. The body of a man was
washed ashore this morning near the
site of tne wrecked telegraph office.
The body has not been identified.
Many persons who have been living in
the second story of their homes were
forced to move out altogether today,
and several had narrow escapes, barely
escaping before their residences col
lapsed or floated away. Another foot of
water will cause the abandonment of
the roundhouse at the crossing of the
connecting road and the Mobile & Ohio;
In East tit. Louis the water in Cauokia
creek is within three feet of last year's
flood level. Last year's experience,
however, has caused protecting walls to
be thrown up, and tlie damage of that
time will not be repeated unless the
high water mark of 18'J2 is exceeded. At
Belleville Rich land creek has over
flowed its banks and filled many base
ments. Several manufacturing estab
lishments have been forced to shut
down, their boiler rooms being inuu
On this side of the river North St.
Louis is so far the worst sufferer. The
Knapp-Stout Lumber company's yard is
in imminent danger of being washed
away. The district of squatters known
as "Oklahoma" is now a vast lake, with
here and there a hastily vacated shanty
protruding a few feet
Abuve the Water's Surface.
South of the city proper, between Ar
senal street and Carondalet, the scene
is a repetition of a year ago. The low
lands are flooded and the squatters
have been forced to vacate their
shanties and grounded flat boats. All,
or nearly all, their few possessions have
been washed away.
Trainmen coming in from the East
tonight say the water practically covers
all of Brooklyn, and that numbers of
people are moving out of their houses.
Venice, too. seems a^ain to suffer, as
the Hood tonight is encroaching rapidly
upon that place, and the whole village
will soon be a rival to the city of which
it is a namesake, so far as visible dry
land is concerned. The East St. Louis
clock warehouse, immediately south of
the Eads bridge, gave way before
the rush of water about noon,
and fully one-fourth of the vast
building, with the heavy contents, fell
in a iieau, the roof sinking and
settling upon the wreck. Thousands of
barrels of flour, sacks of grain, boxes of
canned goods, bundles of shingles of
both cypress and pine and a miscel
laneous lot of other eoods were precipi
tated through the ground floor and into
the water. One of the laborers, Cicero
Pate, a colored man, was crushed to
death under the debris, and has not yet
been found. Two other laborers were
injured. The loss to the building and
stock of goods will be quite heavy, as
much that was not broken will be
spoiled by the water. The building is
said to belong to Chicago people, and
was used m a general warehouse.
Two Feet in Every Store and Busi-
ness Suspended.
Special to the Globe.
Winnepk;, Man., May I.— Emersou
dispatches say tiie traffic bridge con
necting Emerson and West Lynne was
carried away Saturday evening by
floods. The water is now within fifteen
inches of the ISS2 flood mark. The
river is clear of ice. but still rising, and
two feet or water in every store in town
has completely suspended business.
Services could only be held in one
elnirch yesterday, all others ueing
flooded out. People are going about in
boats. The ice broke up at this place
today, and water is still considerably
below bank level. Danger of flood
seems to be past.

It Has Cored When Everj

Fewer "Ifs" and "Maybes" Than
Evar Before.
The Trouble Primarily With
Blood and Nerves.
A True Remedy Better Than
All the Trade Medicines.
There are today fewer "ifs" and
"maybes" in medicine than ever before.
It's a time of great results.
Not lons a^o it was said of a man sick
with certain diseases that nothing could
be done for him. Today there are few
diseases that cannot either be cured or
About the last to yield to the patient,
accurate study of science were diseases
of the kidneys.
In the case of Bright's disease there
is still that deadly certainty of diagnosis
which answers the inquirer bluntly,
yes or no: but the disease itself has
lost its fearfulness. Medicine cures and
controls it today.
Perhaps more study has been devoted
to this consumption of the kidneys than
to any other sinsrle complaint. Its
characteristics have been most cleariy
marked out. The disease soon involves
many other organs of the body; other
troubles are induced, such as pneumo
nia and rheumatism. The trouble is
primarily with the blood and nerves.
Some of the symptoms of disease of
the kidneys are rapid weakening of the
system, tenderness over the kidneys,
chills, headaches and swelling of feet
and limbs.
Physicians have, in many cases, held
to their own ideas of the incurableness
of kidney troubles, and have clane
stiffly to their old-time text books, but
so many of these cases have been after
wards cured by Paine's celery com
pound that this great remedy is looked
upon by physicians as having unsur
passed power to cure all diseases of the
kidneys. It cures where everything
else fails. Paine's celery compound Is
as superior to al! the ordinary "trade"
remedies as n diamond is to common
glass. It was first prescribed by no less
a man than Dr. E. E. Phelps, the most
famous of Dartmouth's professors, and

Eau Claire, Wis., May I.— War has
been inaugurated by the city authori
ties upon the tin horn gamblers and
demi-monde. The former will not be
allowed to operate in the city, while the
latter have been notified that they must
remove to isolated quarters. Two of
the frail sisters who failed to heed the
warning were today lined 810 each in
the municipal court, while a half-scon;
of others are known to have left the
city. The authorities are in earnest,
and a relentless war will be waged on
all of this class of characters.

the value to health of the pure liquid

Day One of Great Depression

New York. May I.— The day was one
of great depression and considerable ex
citement at the stock exchange. The
bearish feeling was very pronounced at
the start, and found expression in re
peated raids on the leading shares as
the morning wore along. The drop in
prices, which was quite severe, espe
cially in the industrial group.was due to
various causes, prominent among them
being the sudden and altogether unex
pected announcement that the National
Cordage directors had on Saturday de
cided upon an issue of $J,50J,()00 ad
ditional preferred stock. The stock will
be offered to the shareholders at par,
and whatever amount the latter refuses
to take will be absorbed by a syndicate
which has underwritten the whole issue
at par, but this did not prevent the
common stock breaking 8% points to
493€ i and the preferred from selling
down 4% to W%. The failure of the
Bank of Australia and the suspen
sion of an important house in
Liverpool were said to have un
settled the London market, and
hence the posted rates of sterling ex
change here were raised to t4.B6)^(W
4.89%. At the same time the rates for
money jumped from 6 to IC% per cent,
all of which had a 1 demoralizing effect
upon the traders whose accounts were
thinly margined. Outside of Cordage
stocks, American Sugar declined to ( 1 <. / ;
Cotton Oil to 4034; do preferred to 70;
American Tobacco declined 5 to TO, and
Baltimore & Ohio, .3 to 83; Burlington

1 o'clock money eased up, and the un
dertone of speculation improved. An
advance of % to 2% per cent ensued un
der the leadership of the industrial?,
and the excitement which ran high
when the depression was at its height,
abated materially. The market closed
steady in tone, with the rally in prices
well maintained.
