For years he was identified with the ice trade in this city, be in? one of the first to take tip the business here. He had been retired from active life, how ever, for many years. The survivin? members of the fam ily are the wife, two sons, A. H. Lam bert, dr., and (!eor?e K. Lambert, anil one dau?hter, Mrs. I?. F. Maguire, all of this city.

Hall died at 1:20 this morn in? from a sudden attack, which did not last more than twenty minutes, and which was due to extreme n?e. While he had not been robust for several years, he had been considered better of late until his sudden and painless takin? away. Mr. Hall was born in Kxeter, X. H., in 1S20, bein? S2 years old at the time of his death. In his early man hood he was a merchant in George town, Ky., in partnership with his brother-in-law. the late I. L. Mitch ell, of this eitv. Subsequently he was a member of the wholesale ?rocery lirm of Hatch - Hall,' Cincinnati. Ohio, and later wns a planter at the "Mounds Plan tation. Last Carroll Parish, La.

He was married when a yoim? man. but became a widower over twenty years a?o, and he leaves no children. Durin? his residence here he was a prominent member of Trinity Kpis- eopal church. His kindly disposition won him many friends in this city. and his death will cause ?eneral sor row. The, funeral will be held Friday mirniii?, but the details have 'not been arranged and will be announced later. SOCIAL DOINGS. Miss Mildred Dodge entertained a party of friends at cinch yesterday afternoon at her home on Kleventh st rcet in honor of Miss Florence Fry sin?er, of Chiea?o.

The committee intends makin? a thorough canvass in the hope of send in? a snu? sum from here, the. .con gress havin? started the fund with a donation of $100. Not Over-Wise. There is an old allegorical picture of a ?irl seared nt a ?rasshopper, but in Ihe act of heedlessly treadin? on a snake. This is paralleled by the man who spends a large sum of money building a cyclone cellar, but neg lects to provide his family with a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chol era and Diarrhoea Remedy as a safe guard against bowel complaints, whose .victims outnumber those of the cyclone a hundred to one. This remedy is everywhere recognized as the most prompt and reliable medi cine in use for these diseases. For CITY SWEPT BY ' A SEVERE STORM AH the- ' Railroads Are . and the Streets Flooded. Affected Another severe 1 storm visited this section last night, a heavy downpour of rain about midnight being accom panied by severe lightning and some prodigious claps of thunder. There was comparatively little pre cipitation before midnight, but be tween that hour and 7 a. m. 2.S3 inch es of rain fell. In the city little damage was done beyond covering the streets in many places with a thick layer of yellow claV from the bluff region. In (he country the creeks were out of their banks and briilges and fences were washed away or damaged. All the railroads were more or less affected. On the. main line of the Kock Island west of the city trains were slightly delayed early in the morning, while on the Peoria branch near Coal alley and near Tavlor Uidge on the Mercer county liranch there were slight washouts that ne cessitated some repair work before trains could cross. The Ltirlington road near Warner Station, where the washout occurred recently, was again damaged and the train from the south was about an hour and a ha if late. HUNTS HIS MAN WITH REVOLVER Husband Seeks to Avenge Domestic Wrong, nut Is Foiled. Late yesterday afternoon a well known business man residing in the central part of the city returned home to find .that a male acquaint ance had visited the place in his ab sence and hail, so he subsequently claimed, been paying nu:lue attention toward his wife. Securing a gun the husband started out in quest of the would-be despoil- er of his home and would have filled him full 'of lead had he caught him. The other, however, had an inkling that trouble woulcl follow' if he re mained in his usual haunts, so lie made himself scarce, and when the irate spouse presented himself at the place of business of his quarry no one was to be found, lie remained outside pacing up and down till an officer happened along, and learning what was up. disarmed him. It is feared that the difficulty will yet lead to deeds of violence when the aggrieved party meets the object of his wrath. RELIGIOUS MATTERS AFFECT ED'HIS MIND .lohn Siebrandt, who while at work Monday suddenly began acting in a peculiar manner, yesterday after noon was tried as to his sanity in the county court before a jury com posed of Dr. W. H. Ludcwig. l. K. Fleming, W. .1. Hanson, .1. A. John son, S. Ix'wis and John Shcllv.

SUITS TOE $10,000 DAMAGES BEGUN Controversy Discussed at Kock Is land Club Membership Meeting. Matters at Sears were running along much as usual today and the ears of the Tri-City Railway com pany were making their regular trips to the Watch Tower unmolested. So far as can be learned no further action will be taken on either side till the September term of the cir cuit court, when the application for a permanent injunction made by the company to prevent the citizens of the village from interfering with the line or its operation will come up for a hearing. To all appearances there will be no criminal proceedings against the citi zens, but late yesterday afternoon, as stated in The Argus, a suit for $10)00 damages for Jrespass was be gun against David Sears, K. D. Fisher, Hill Cox and C. 11. Dibbern. Topics llefore the Club. Last evening's meeting of the Rock Island Club membership was devoted for the most part to a discussion of the Rock river bridge problem and the controversy between the Tri-City Railway company and the village of Sears. In the latter matter the president was empowered to appoint a com mittee with instructions to seek an adjudication of t Tit" differences be tween the company and the village, while in regard to the toll bridges another committee was ordered nam ed to act with a like body from the Retail Merchants' association in an effort to induce the city council to devise a plan whereby the briilges can be so strengthened as to permit of the passage of electric cars. It was suggested that the offer of the Tri-City Railway company, made on several occasions, of a contribu tion of .f2,xii) toward the work, be accepted and the municipality bear the remainder of the expense. The proposed railway loop received attention also, the members express in? themselxes in favor of the line running out either Fifteenth or Sev enteenth street in order to be in touch with Loiigvicw park.
