Ex-State Senator Grimm of Wllber was here this morning with a story of boat 'rides over wheat fields. Out In his neigh borhood the water had become so high as to cover the large wheat fields on the Zwonechek farm. Several of the residents of that vicinity had secured a steamboat with a capacity of twenty persons and had gone down the Blue, crossed the road and were steaming across the wheat field when he last heard of them. The water was so high near tha mills east of town that tt ran over the wheel and the shafts that entered the mill. It was here several days ago that a little work by a man and a spade could have changed the channel of Blue river. Way back In tho old days Blue river made a loop near the city of Wllber, around what la now known as Blue Island. In later years, Just when no ens remembers, the course changed and the river made almost a direct shot across east of the town. The only barrier that kept tha river from changing back was a dike thrown up which leaas Into the mill. Senator Grimm said In fifteen mtnutea any one could have thrown aside enough dirt to have caused the road to give way. And there are others here who wonder why the fifteen minutes' work was not done, be cause In the old channel nearly every sum mer the water becomes stagnant, which from a sanitary standpoint Is very unde sirable. A change back to Its old course by the river would have remedied this. E. Q. Msggl. an Albion attorney, came In with another story of the high water. He arrived hero this morning and thus con cluded a trip that he has been trying to end ever since last Saturday night. Mr. Maggl went to Burchard last Saturday morning, at which place he delivered the address on Memorial day. It was on the road to Lincoln that he had his experi ences. He went from Burchard to Table Rock on a hand car and from Table Rock to Lincoln on a wrecking train. The dam age that has been done by the water In the localities through which he passed, he aid, could not be estimated. Nearly all Hair Vigor Only 35? You look at least 601 Restore color to your gray hair. Keep young. Why not? No need grow ing old 60 fast. No excuse now that you know how Ayer's Hair Vigor always restores color. t Avers county bridges and culverts hare been washed out and miles and miles of railroad tracks were under water. Appears la Behalf of Rhea.' Judge G. M. Loomls of Dodge county was here today on business and Incidentally called upon Governor Mickey In regard to William Rhea, now under sentence of death In the state penitentiary. Later a day will be net by the governor for the friends of the condemned man to show cause why three should be any interference on the part of the executive. Mr. Loomls assisted In preparing the case for presenta tion to the supreme court and at Rhea's first trial he was appointed his attorney by the court, but owing to the fact that he was In the legislature, he did not take part In the trial. He will argue the case to the governor from a legal standpoint. Examining- Yonng Lawyers. The supreme court bar commission will meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week to examine applicants for ad mission to practice law In Nebraska. The commission is composed of Judge Davidson of Tecumseh, Fred Shepherd of Lincoln, G. H. Thomas of Schuyler, B. F. Good of Wahoo and Elmer B. Thomaa of Omaha. Mr. Thomaa was here today to make the preliminary arrangements for the examina tion. The applications number seventeen, but besides these there are eighty young men graduates of the law department of the university who will be passed upon their diplomas and will hot have to stand the examination. Appears for Labor Unions. John O. Yelser of Omaha, attorney for the striking labor unions, was before the supreme court today to secure a hearing on an application for habeas corpus to secure the release of Sid Anderson and SI Johnson, in jail In Omaha for distrib uting "unfair" cards before the doors of a nonunion restaurant. Mr. Yelser tried to secure the release of the men under habeas corpus proceedings In Omaha, but Judge Estelle refused the writ. The su preme court advanced the case and It will be heard Wednesday or Thursday of next week. Mr. Yelser claims that the ordinance pre venting the distribution of the cards to be unconstitutional and Invalid and upon that ground he expects to win his case. Mayor Against City. In a case in the supreme court this morn ing Mayor Adams was the attorney for the plaintiff and against the city and City Attorney Strode appeared in behalf of the city. ThJ case was that of Goddard against the city. In which the plaintiff seeks to recover damages for the death of his son some time ago, as the result of Injuries received by falling on a defective side walk.

Admissions to the bar: C D. Wllley of Cedar county and George W. Woolsey of C-dar countv. admitted on motion of W. W Young; George Mullen of Sarpy county, admitted on motion of Charles C. Wright. The case of Spearman against Fase, error, Sarpy county, came oa (or trial In the regular order. Plaintiff In error hsd no briefs on file and avoided the usual order of affirmance by showing that the sum mons, which was returnable at the begin ning of the September term, had not yet been returned and by insisting thut the case was not yet at Issue. Defendant In error had sometime since tiled his volun tary appearance and sought to avoid this point, but upon tha objection of the plain tiff that It could not be brought In sooner than the return day the case passed until the September term. This Is Interesting, as it shows how well the court has suc ceeded in bringing up the docket and as It also shows the practice which will prob ably be tollowed In many instances in the future. Tho trial list for June 16 takes oft all the cases on the bar docket Issued January 1 and many besides. In other words, the court will on June 16 call cases for hearing which were filed February 17, 1903. Reverse Caucus Action. In the republican primaries held here to day the only contest was In the Seventh ward, where Councilman Pentzr won out over Judge Greenlee by thirteen votes. The former is a candidate for county su perintendent and the latter for district Judge. In the caucus held lost nig, it Greenlee defeated Pentier. The result to day means that Speaker Mockett will be In the convention. In tho other wards of the city there was no contest. A light vote was cast. Just what the outcome of the convention will be no one can tell at this time. The so-called machine is badly divided and the antls are correspondingly strong. The main light Is tor district Judge. Tonight the machine Is trying to form a combination to control the con vention. The slate has been made up, and that which stands some show of going through is this: Judges, J. M. Stewart, C. 8. Allen and Judge Frost. W. C. Phil lips looks good for district clerk, Dr. Barnes for assessor and Fred Kenyon for commissioner. There is strong talk of a combination of the present district Judges, however, which, if effected, might smash the slate. Unless agreements are reached tonight a redhot convention Is looked for. BRIDGE IS INNODANGER NOW Missouri River Is Falling; and People of Nebraska City Feel Easier, NEBRASKA CITY, Neb., June 2.-(Spe- cial Telegram.) The river has been falling here for the last twelve hours and no fur ther anxiety for the approach to the Bur lington bridge is felt. LEIGH, Neb., June . (Special.) The recent heavy rains In this vicinity have been a great backset to the farmers. Fully one-fourth of the corn Is yet to be planted, and, as It is still raining, there is little prospect of doing much planting this week. Some of the corn that is al ready planted will no doubt have to be replanted in order that a stand may be obtained, which, owing to the lateness of the season, will necessarily make the corn very late. In town nearly all of the cellars and basements have from two to four feet of water In them caused from the rise In the underground flow. M'COOL JUNCTION, Neb.. June 2 (Spe cial.) There has been a perceptible fall in the Blue river and residents here and along the valley are feeling much easier. Water has been higher than ever before and has destroyed crops, fences and carried away small buildings. It la nearly Impossible for people living east or south of McCool to get to town. Those who are obliged to come to town come to the track one mile south, tie their team and walk the rest of the way. ... FREMONT, Neb.', June ' 8. (Special.) Many of the roads leading to the city are almost Impassable on account of mud and consequently no stock or grain Is coming In and there are but few farmers on the streets. Teamsters can only haul small loads in the city. The Platte Is out of Its banks, but no serious damage Is appre hended from It. The Elkhorn Is also out, Auditorium Has Troubles. OSCEOLA, Neb., June I.-(Speeial.) Osceola's Auditorium association Is having troubles of its own these days that may delay the building, and the members have gone Into court to have It settled. It seems that when they were taking subscription for stock Mrs. W. H. Myers subscribed 500, with the proviso that If the First National bank bought her bank building she would take twenty shares of stock. The bank bought the building, but Mrs. Myers falls to com to time with her sub scription, and so the company has said, 'Come Into court," and the case has been set for June 8. Grand Chapter Meeting; Postponed WYMORE, Neb.. June 2. (Special.) The grand chapter of the P. E.

Neb., June 2 (Speclal.)-The city council met as a board of review yes terday. The only protest so far filed was by Solomon Gavton. He had a new house In process of construction on April 1 and objects to its being assessed at any more than the value of the lot on the ground that the lumber was assessed to the lum ber firm from whom he purchased It. The council did not agree with him and the assessment will stand. Y oung Man Found 'Dead. BEATRICE. Neb.. Juno !. (Special Tfle gram.)

NEBRASKA CROP CONDITIONS Excessive Rainfall .Does Much Dam age to All Crops In Large Sections. LINCOLN, June 1 The following sum mary of crop conditions in Nebraska is given out by the section director of the climate and crop service of the weather bureau: The past week has been cold and wet. The dally mean temperature averaged degrees below normal In the eastern counties and 1 degree below In western. The rainfall has been general and heavy; over the eastern half of the state It has exceeded two Inches and In most of this district It has ranged between three and six Inches. The continuous and heavy rain has practically prevented all work In the fields for the past week. In all except the ex treme western and a few northern coun ties a large amount of replanting will be necessary because of washing out and covering up of corn or the flooding of the low lands by the excessive rains; corn has thus suffered considerable damage and the prospect is much less promising than It was a- week ago. The low lands are largely covered with water in east ern counties, which will result in some damage to small grain; where not under water, oats, wheat and grass have made a rank growth and In a few places have lodged a little. Grass has grown well generally; conditions In extreme western counties were unusually favorable. It Is too early to make an .estimate of damage done by the excessive rains, as so much depends upon the w-sather of the next two weeks. RISONER COMMITS.

The killing of Christlanson was a cold blooded and shocking affair and created Intense feeling against Logan In the com munity where the two men resided.

HEATH MAKES REPLY ( Continued from First Page.) dishonesty. What purpose Gilmer had In carrying these records from the de partment I do not pretend to say. This incident had no connection with Gllmcr'a work as auditor. The other reference relates to Tulloch's displacement from the position of cashier in the Washington postofflee. The first distinct recollection I have of Tulloch was shortly sfter the Induction of Postmaster Merrltt and the appointment of a new cashier. A number of Tulloch's friends called upon me, singly, and asked me to Intercede for his reinstatement. After I had steadily declined to make any con cession one or two men called and advised me as a matter of protection to have him reinstated. Scandal Is Threatened. I was advised that Tulloch had been collecting evidence of improprieties In the postofflee snd If he were not reinstated he would expose them, that I would be made to suffer and McKlnley's administration would be scandalised. I remember to have stated to one of these Importunate friends that I could not con ceive how an honest and conscientious employe of the government would want to remain In a position where wrong was being done, much less reinstated under su'ch conditions, and that as he had been a sworn officer of the government, and had not to my knowledge reported these alleged irregularities. I would not and could not In conscience recommend him for any position. This is the matter to which you now call my attention and was then at tne instance or Tulloch pub lished In newspapers in Washington and elsewhere und then fully answered. The men against whom allegations were directed had refused to pay the price of the proposed secrecy. it tnere is any specinc inrormation that I can give you or any service .that I can render you In any way In collecting facts bearing upon ay transaction within the bureau over wnicn i presiuea until about three years ago I shall be glad to serve you. Thanking you for courtesy and wUh best wlshs, yours faithfully, rt.titix B. xxKATn. Sick Headache. Watch for the first Indication of an at tack and as soon as you feel It coming on take three of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets and the attack may be warded off. Mr. George E. Wright of New London, New Tork, says: "For several years my wife was troubled with what physicians called sick headache of a very severe character. She doctored with sev eral eminent physicians and at a great ex pense, only to grow worse until she was unable to do any kind "of work. About a year ago she began taking Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets and today weighs more than she ever did before and Is real well." Ferris Wheel Sells Cheap. CHICAGO, June 2.

TEXTILE STRIKE SPREADS Eoiierj Mills at Philadelphia Are Now Affeotei EIGHT THOUSAND MORE PEOPLE IDLE Xearly All ( Them Are Women and Children Who Have No lulon Organisation, but Seek a Shorter Week. PHILADELPHIA, June 2.-The strike of the textile workers of Philadelphia for a flfty-flve-hour week spread today to hosiery mills, tying up the textile Industry tighter than It has been since the great uspenslon was Inaugurated. Fully 8,000 persons Joined the already large army of Idle workers. Most of these were women and children employed in the hosiery mills In the Kensington district. This class of workers are unorganised, but they decided to Join the ranks of the unionists when they saw the magnitude of the movement for a shorter week. It is probable that most of the women and children will be organised into unions. It was given out by the executive board of the textile workers tonight that ten additional firms had agreed to give theli employes the flfty-flve-hour week. This makes fifty-eight firms that have conceded the demands. It Is estimated that upward of 20.000 persons are now working under the conditions demanded by the unions of the forty-nine branches of the textile In dustries affected by the strike. The manufacturers who have not ac ceded to the unions' demands, and among them are some of the largest owners In the Industry, declare that they will close down their establishments Indefinitely be fore submitting to the union.
