In the matter of Superintendent of Health, it was not considered to the best Interest of the division com mander to allow what the oeonle thought a logical arrangement. So the machine ordered the usurping coroner to reslirn that uonltinn tn ake a higher seat in the synagogue, laving proved himself worthy by mplicit obedience. One candidate who offered to perform the duties of superintendent of health for one half the salary paid was rewarded with the appointment of the lucra tive position of coroner, another was appointed one of the election board and hence having been caught in this ruse, his lips was sealed at the pie counter. Now when the faithful began to congratulate themselves on the suc cessful close of this incident, came up from the west and corners of the county a "Sand Rlast" the drop pings from which were accusations of double dealings and acts resembling which an Apache Indian would scarcely be proud.

Victoi ia, B.C., Dispatch. -News received from Siberia irives the most distressing accounts of the great famine which has overtaken the greater part of western and cen tral Siberia. Even eastern Siberia, hitherto the most prosperous part ol the country, has been overtaken by famine. In this case the famine is the consequence of too much rain. The new railway has ruined large numbers of inhabitants of the Siber ian tract who formerly lived by hiv ing horses and engaging in transport. Some of the newspapers declare that Russia would be seriously hampered if complications were to come in China, as the Siberian grain reserves, wnicn were relied upon to feed the army in Nanchuria, are practically exhausted.

Madame Mounter Imprisons Her Daugh ter In a Dark Room and Keeps Her There For a Quarter of a Century The Awful Sia-ht That Met the Police When They Opened the Prison Door. Paris, June 8. The sensation of the week has been the arrest of Mad am Monnier, a rich, miserly, land owner of the neighborhood of Poit iers, and her son, a former prefect of the Department of Vienna and a leader of Poitier's society, on the charge of incarcerating Mile Rlanche Monnier, daughter of Madame Mon nier, for twenty-five years, in a room of Madame Monnier's house. The police who were anonymously notified cf the woman's detention. entered the house and found Mile. Monnier shut up in a room, in dark ness, lying on a mattress, stark na ked, and so emaciated that she ap peared to be a living skeleton. The room was covered with filth, bones, re ruse looa, worms, rats and all kinds of vermin. The unfortunate woman, who had partially lost her reason, was taken to a hospital. It was thought she would die, but she is now improving. Twenty-five years ago she was a beautiful bru nette and fell in love with a lawyer without means. Her mother disap proved of their love and confined her in the room which she has only recently lea. The son, after his ar rest, pleaded that he acted as he did on account of filial piety and that the mother was responsible. The lawyer died In 1885. There was another dramatic de velopment in the case to-day. Mad ame Monnier died in prison of heart disease. The gravity of her crimp was brought home to her at the j udge'3 examination Thursday.

TKE CAUSI CF TCI CHAT 0AEACE. rarmers afore at the Utwi nr ruwwi. Tha Xirer B tore-Pet r tiui of The For Che Chief and Growing Troable. Charlotte Observer. Mr. E. W. Myew, of Chapel II IU. who Is connected with the United ouiies ueoiogical Survey, and who ft A A - - . . . has been detailed to examine the caiawoa nver ior the Dumam of at- a a making a report on the recent flood, m a was in tne city last Thursday. in an Interview with an Observer reporter Mr. Myers stated that he had followed the Catawba from its source in the Swannanoa Ga n in Rock Hill, S. O. and had talked with the residents who live along the river for this distance. He ap proximates the damage done by the flood at $500,000. The damage along ii me river siue nas Deen general and in proportion to the acreage of bot tom land. In Dracticallv all th wheat fields close to the H and has been sanded over for two or three feet deep and the corn fields have been completely washed away down to an unproductive subsoil The injury to farming land was greatest in Rurke and McDowell counties, said Mr. Myers, because in these counties there is more bottom and. In McDowell the damage is about $100,000. and in Rurke it is between $250,000 and $300,000. The broad bottom lands in the latter county are simply ruined for a dis tance of three hundred yards on either side of the Catawba. The velocity of the water, said Mr. Myers, was greater than ever before. At Rock Hill the current ran about ten miles an hour, which is a terrific and hurtful pace for the Catawba. And it is universallv ad: mitted that during the recent flood the river was much higher than ever before. The hurtful effects of the velocity of the water was not due to amount of rain that feU. for the weather bureau reports indicate that much heavier rains have fallen in the past and the volume of water was carried off without injurious conseanence. The whole seciet of the bad effect and extent of the flood lies in the deforestration in the western part of the fctate Along the Linville river and in aU parts of western Carolina the country is being stripped of trees, and this is followed by the forest fires which sweep awav all vegetation or undergrowth. When the rains fall on such land there is nothing to retard the current of the water. With great force it strikes the river, the velocity of the Ca tawba is increased by the mad vio- ence of the water and the current develops a wonderful and dangerous power. Every man who lives by the river, said Mr. Myers, says, without hesitation, that the cutting away of the timber is entirely re sponsible for the serious flood. "In the future," said he, "the land along the Catawba will be more at the mercy of the river. The last freshet tore off vegetation along the banks, made new channels, or cut-offs, and broke through all the elbows of the river. So the farm land is much more unprotected than formerly and it is in the power of a comparatively small freshet to do vast injury?" "What Is the remedy?" "There is no present remedy." said Mr. Myers. "This flood sug gests no warning to thrtimber men n the western part of the state. They are more active now than ever before in the history of the state and they are cutting down all the trees they can reach. It is the truth that as the matter stands there is plain, though not recognized, war fare between1 the timber men and the farmers. The timber men are making money, but are ruining the farmers along the Catawba. This question is most vital; but the peo ple do not seem to understand or appreciate the great danger that con fronts them. The ultimate and ab solutely necessary remedy will be a measure that will prevent the wild and wasteful cutting of timber. This, together with the establishment of the Appalachian Park, which wiU preserve timber around the source of the river, is the only hope." rhe Saloon Sakaaber Sara She la Cominr to Xorth Carolina.

The lead ing member of the minority of the great appropriation committee of the House Congressman Livingston, t Georgia sees danger ahead for the South. He is not in favor of any constitutional amendment for his State in line with amendments on the suffrage question which have been adopted by Louisiana, Mississi ppi, North and (South Carolina. He seen danger In such amendments which he thinks may In the future result in the cutting down of the congressional representation of States adopting them. "I think our people are against such amendments to our state con stitution," he said. "We are get ting along nicely with the negro in Georgia. The states which adopt the amendments already adopted by Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, may see the time when Congress will take the matter up with a view to affecting their representation in Congress. As long as Georgia is doing well we do not care to run a risk of having our representation cut down in the United States Congress and the elec- torial college. I was opposed to giving the republicans the advant ages we gave them at the last ses sion in increasing their membership in the House. We gave them an increase of nine members when there was no necessity for it, but we had democrats who were so anxious to get their own representation increas ed that they were willing to let them do as they wanted. "The House was large enough. Now, if they conclude their margin not sufficient, and claim their right to increase it by reducing the representation of such states as Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, it would bring tur moil and strife and re-open the issues of the civil war. For these reasons I do not think it is best for the Southern states to adopt such constitutional amendments. I think the Georgia election law remedies the whole trouble complained of in tha South. Any man can vote in Georgia if he is not a felon and has paid his taxes. The great majority of the negroes have only a poll tax to pay. A negro can refuse to pay his poll tax of $1, and after he has done so for twenty years he can vote any time by paying it up. Rut hundreds and hundreds of them prefer to take care of the dollar to voting. We have no educational qualification. The number of negroes in our state is not so large as it was formerly. Very many of them are moving away where agricultural conditions are better than they are in Georgia. The colored people in the state are now in the proportion of four to six." A Student at Richmond CoUere Seat Home In Disgrace, Richmond, June 7. A young man who is the son of one of the most prominent and popular minis ters in the State and who came of a family with a long and illustrious line of ancestors, was expelled last night from Richmond College for stealing, and has been sent home. He was caught by Detective Wrenn after rigid investigation. Articles had been missing at the college, among them a gold watch belong ing to Prof. F. D. Winston, of the chair of physics. The watch was recovered from a pawn shop and when the young man's rooms were searched many articles belonging to other students were found. The young man seems crushed by the disgrace.

HAS REACHED A SICKENING POINT. rhe Lta-Ulatnre Created a Lara-e Namber of Offices, And In Tarn Hare Been Ap pointed bj the Governor or Board of Directors to F1U the Office. Monroe Enquirer. The tendency of the appointive power in our state government is to give places to members of the legis lature. This has been carried on to such an extent that a laree per cent of the memers of the last legislature has been appointed to positions of trust and honor. The common, everyday people of the state are criticising such an abuse of power, as we have just right and cause to do. The legislature created a laree number of offices and then in turn the Governor or board of directors put in positions of honor and trust those same legislators who made the offices to which they are appointed. Now, we have four new judicial dis tricts to which judges and solicitors are appointed by the Governor, and three of the judges and three solici tors are members of the leeislature which created the new districts. J. S. Mann, a member of the legisla ture, was elected by the board of directors of the penitentiary as the superintendent of our state prison. The legislature created that board and the board "set up" an influential member of the legislature which created it. And thus it eoes until it has reached a sickening point. It looks very much to a man up a tree like a case of "you tickle me with a straw ana I'll tickle vou with a telegraph pole." South Carolina Whiskers Gome to Greenville, S.
