People of Madison Interested in Se

[ From Wednesday's Dally. ]
The people of Madison are interested
iu the proposition of the county com
missioners to call an election for the
purpose of voting on the question of is
suing bonds for the erection of five stool
bridges in the couuty , one of which is
to bo over Union and Taylor creeks at
the foot of Pearl street in that oity.
Acting Mayor Frank Ilorst called n
pnbllo mooting to discuss the proposition
aud got au expression of the people on
the subject.
While Madison will get the oue bridge
the other four will bo built over the
Elkhoru In place of the woodou struc
tures that were torn out by the recent
freshet. If therefore the people of
Madison will support the proposition
there should bo no question of the sup
port of the townspeople and farmers in
the territory contiguous to the rivor.
The washed out structures will have

Telephone Wires Cause the Electric

[ From Wednesday's Dally. ]
The cause of the short circuit in the
electric light system Monday night ,
which for a time loft parts of the oity

phone wires which had dropped at the
Press flro nnd which crossed the electric
light lines.
The story of the accident was pub
lished iu yesterday's NEWS. The
reason the cause was ommitted was that
it was not given at the lighting station
when the facts were asked for.

Commissioners Will Call an
Approach at Thirteenth Street Bridge
Now Out Union Pacific Will Build
a Now Bridge Over the Elkhorn
[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
The last remaining means of com *
nunication between the north and
louth sides of the river by wagon road
ms been severed by the washing out of
portion of the south approach to the
Thirteenth street bridge and Oommis-
loner Winter has posted notices to pro-
out teamsters from attmnptiug to cross
ho river ut tlmt point. The bridge him
ot boon damaged , but the packing of
ho ice iii the channel has directed the
orco of the current against the np-
iroach with the result that a consider-
iblo portion of it has boon cut away.
The damage is not so serious however
mt that the commissioner believes that
10 will bo able to provide a temporary
neatis for crossing within a couple of
ays , after which the break will bo
lormanontlv repaired or spanned.
Tlio commissioners between now and
Monday will go over the entire 'Elkhorn
> ridge situation with a view to nscer-
dining the requirements and at the
meeting Monday it is planned to call an
leotiou for the purpose of voting bonds
u an amount necessary to replace all
lie washed out bridges with permanent
tool span structures that will not bo
emoved at every rise of the river.
It is figured that inasmuch as the
bridges will have to bo rebuilt the eco
nomical plan will be to vote the bonds
necessary and construct thorn with a
view to permanency. Loading tax
payers take the same view of tlio
question. They are heartily tired of
mttiug in wood structures , built on
dies , that are removed on the occasion
of every rise , which happens about once
a year or every Jiwo or three years , and
during the intrieui they are compelled
o put up a considerable amount in re-
mira that are n heavy expense. The
> lau of voting bonds will undoubtedly
meet the unanimous approval of those
vho have followed the expense account
occasioned by the building , rebuilding
aud ropaiiiug of the cheaper wooden
The steel bridge plan will undoubt
edly mean a largo expense to begin with
mt the bonds and the interest on the
same will hardly amount to more than
ho regular bridge expense that has
> eon occasioned during the five or ten
years past and the stool bridges would
certainly last beyond that length of
; inio. Then there Is the additional
safety of the steel strnoturos to recom
mend them , and this alouo is a strong
argument in their favor.
It is believed that bonds in the
amount of about $25,000 will bo euf-
icioiit for the purpose , and as there Islet
lot sufficient money iu the bridge fund
of the county to replace the structures
he only alternative is for the commis
sioners to call the special election.
The bridge gang and bridge construc
tion train of the Union Pacific railway
company is here for 'tho purpose of
Hiildiug a now stool bridge over the
Slkhoru where their track crosses the
river south of the city. For several
rears the river has been cutting a new
shanuel north of the old brfdge which
las left the structure spanning a bayou
while the main channel of the river has
jeen running under a pile trcssol on
this side. During the recent high
water this channel was broadened and
deepened to such an extent that the
jridgo department decided a new steel
mdge at the point would be necessary.
The channel is now so wide that a steel
jridge of ICO foot span will be required
: o answer the purpose of the company
and work on it has commenced by the
regular bridge gang.

"From the present outlook , the bill

of the whole aud has been advanced

passage is assured. After this reading ,
the bill will go to the senate , whore it is
likely that short work will be made of
it. The passage iu the senate is prac

Cured by One Bottle of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy.
"Wh'eu I had an attack of the grip
last winter ( the second one ) I actually
cured myself with one bottle of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy , " says Frank
W. Perry , editor of tlio Enterprise ,
Shortsville , N. Y. . "This is the honest
truth. I ut times kept from coughing
myself to pieces by taking a tenspoonfnl
of this remedy , and wlitu the coughing
spell would como on at night I would
take a dose and it seemed that iu the
briefest interval the cough would pass
off and I would go to sleep perfectly
free from cough and its accompanying
pains. To say that the reniedy acted as
a most agreeable surprise is putting it
very mildly. I had no idea tlmt it
would or could knock out the grip ,
simply because I had never tried it for
such a purpose , but it did , and it seemed
with the second attack of coughing the
remedy caused it to not only bo of Idss
duration , but the pains wore far less
severe , and I had not used the contents
of one bottle before Mr. Grip hod bid
meadiou. " For sale by the Kiesau
