Caarlea Woo.ter Points Oat Objections to Pendlnsr Measures. SILVER CREEK. Neb., Msrch 16. To the editor of The Bee: Some time ago you were kind enough to publish a let ter from me on tue brldgj question and bssed on two bills then and now pending before the legislature. One hss passed the senate, and the other, H. R. 112. has passed the house, and is now In the hands of the senate. In regard to this bill I wish a word further. I do not expect to influence the action of the senate in this matter, but the people should know, even if members of the legislature do not. and they some times don't, what the legislature is doing. If on did not object to raising the adver tising imlt from $100 to $300, to which I do seriously object, H. R. Ill wruld appear, cn the face of It, to be a very good bill, and to afford ample protection to the tax payers. But, as a matter of fact. It does nothing of the kind. It requires county commissioners and supervisors to adver tise for bids on all bridges thst are to cost $300 or over, but provides that they may reject any and all bids and do the work themselves on condition that they do not mkke it cost more thsn the low est bid. This, as will readily be seen, p-its It In the power of county bosrds to build any and all bridges, no matter what they it "e's Sale Ten Millie? Boxes a Year. TBI rAHIirS 10c HtSOc.

It being only necessary that they should, in any case, reject all bids, a ve -y simple thing to do. But, bad as I. Is, In my opinion, the bill is really worse for what it does not contain than for what it does contain. While, as stated. It empow ers county boards to reject all bids and do the work themselves provided they do not make it cost more than the lowest bid. It nowhere provlles sny way what ever by which they, or any one else, can tell how much a bridge cost when built. They may buy lumber, timbers and plies by the car load, help themselves to it at pleasure, get other material from local dealers or where the please, employ help at will, and are not required to make any report of their doings or render any account whatever. Would not that be a most abominable lawT Rather than to pass such a bill, the legislature would do well to repeal all our bridge laws and tell the county boards to go ahead and do as they d m please, and say noth ing. If the senate should see fit to pass 11. R. 112 it should not be done except with an amendment. In substance as follows: "And, provided further, that In the event that the commissioners or supervisors re ject all bids and build the bridge them selves, Immediately on its completion the commissioner, supervisor or other person having the work in charge shall file with the county clerk to be preserved by him a sworn statement, fully Itemized, showing the total cost of the bridge and the cost per lineal foot." But the best thing the senate could do with 11. R. 112, If they ever get to it, would be to postpone It Indefinitely. CHARLES WOOSTER. FINDS OWNER FOR THE WATCH Contents of Darted Can Proves to Have Been Stolen from Chlcasro. FLATTSMOUTH, Neb.. March 16. (Spe cial.) While digging a posthole to Join the fence up to his barn, John Meyer, a farmer, recently dug up an old tin can containing several $10 bills, a gold watch and other ar ticles.

Mr. Meyer has received an answer to his letter from Morris. In which he gives a very accurate description of the watch, and also told how he had lost it.

Dare She Will Hear In Time All It Is Proper for Her to Know. BUFFALO, March 16. Miss Marlon Bur dlch. the prelty daughter of the la'e Ed win L. Burdick, was the most Interesting witness at the inquest before Judge Mur phy todsy. Marlon is 16 years old and bears a striking resemblance to her mother. She was not earily confused and there was no sign of agitation or emotion when the district attorney questioned her closely regarding her father's murder, carefully choosing his words in putting questions to her. Doctor tats Breakfast. Dr. William H. Marcy, the Burdick fam ily physician, was the first witness. Dr. Marcy ssid he had lir. n the .physician for the Burdlcks for about seven years, and also had treated Mrs. Hull professionally. Dr. Marcy described the condition of the den when he entered it and told of find ing the body on the couch. "Was there anything In the appearance of the couch to Indicate that there was a body on the couch?" was ssked. "Well, the pillows were piled up ,-ather high." was the reply, "and it looked as If there was something under them." "But did there appear to be a body under them?" "No." He made a casual examination of the body and lift the room, telling Mrs. Hull "Burdick is dead and I think he has been murdered." "What did she say?" "She made an exclamation, 'Vv God' or something and said: 'How shall I ever tell the children?' " He notified Dr. Howlands, the medical examiner, and Mr. Farke. Mr. Burdick' partner. Then Mrs. Hull Invited him to breakfast and he sat down and ate before Dr. Howlands arrived. Ho had no conver sation with Mrs. Hull during breakfast, ar she was upstairs most of the time. "Relate the conversation between you and Howland in which the word suicide oc curred," asked the district attorney. "I said that Jf it was suicide or If It looked suicidal and he could make it out a caee of suicide It would be all the bet ter for the family. I thought It would save Burdlck's good name. 1 saw htm al most disrobed, lying on the couch, and 1 saw the lunch on the table, and It all looked very shady, especially as the di vorce proceedings bsd been started." Replying, to the Judge, witness was of the opinion that Burdlck's muider bad grown out of the divorce proceedings. H thought he had had a woman vlBltor. Miss Koenlg, Mr. Burdlck's housemaid, described an ingenious electric appliance which lighted the gas in the hall and the den. By pressing the button the gas could be lighted. By pressing another button It was extinguished. On the night after the murder It was found that this arrange ment did not work. An Investigation showed that some one had turned off the gas In the den Instead of extinguishing it by means of the button. Sssghter Not Interested. Miss Marlon Burdick. deceased's eldest daughter, was then called, and said Mrs. Hull first informed ber of her father's death. "Did she say where he was?" asked Mr. Coatsworth. "She said-he was in the den." "Was that before Dr. Marcy arrived?" "Yes." Before learning that her father was dead I Marlon said she did not go near the den, though she knew he was ill, and no one was taking care of him. "Why didn't you go to him?" asked the district attorney. "Because I knew something dreadful had happened." "How did you know?" "From the way grandma looked. She was exceedingly pale." "Why did you not ask her about your father?" "I knew when it was proper for me to know she, would tell me. I knew that if care would do any good grandma would have been In there taking care of him."

POURS OVER LAND THROUGH TWO GAPS Other Bpota Weaken and May Give Way at Almost Any Momeat, Al thonsjh Engineers Exhaust Sci ence to Strengthen Them. MEMPHIS, March 16. The St. Francis levee gave way late this afternon at Trice's Landing, Ark., and tonight the Mississippi river is rushing through a three-quarter mile crevasse with a roar that can be heard for miles. This is the first break near Memphis, but tbe water is still rising at a rapid rate and three other points on the Arkansas levee are in a precarious condl tlon. The rise today swept away the temporary embankments at Trice's and tore the levee Itself from Its foundation, giving a new channel for the flood. The break was of uch extent that tb engineer realised the hoplesness of attempting to repair It and It was abandoned after tb ends of the levees had been revetted with aand sack and atones to prevent further cutting away of the embankment. Situation Is Critical. Tha situation In the meantime had be come critical at three other points and to night it is considered doubtful if these place can be held In the face of the rising flood. At Pecan Point, Fogletnan'a Land ing and St. Thomas the flood 1 abreast of the crown of the levees and hundreds of men are at each place working by lantern light to save the day. So rapid I the ad vance of the river tonight that reports from these positions are awaited with dread and it will be no surprise If a crevasse has developed at each before tomorrow night; The engineers of the levee board say that the damage from the break will not bi as severe a would result at any other point on the embankment. From this point a draw leads into the St. Francis river through several bayous and lakes which will prevent the water spreading. The river at Memphis bas risen 1.2 feet In twelve hours. There Is no forecasting what wir. be the maximum reached, as the crest of the wave Is not considered to have been reached. In the city tonight the situation is worse than ever. In North and South Memphis many homes and business houses have been flooded. Street car traffic practically bas been suspended In North Memphis. NATCHEZ, Miss., March 16.
