active work was done pledging votes before
the mooting commenced , Tlio great matter
of Interest was the consideration of the Kelly

of the fcW,400 of the board's money which

was seen the placid countenance of Council *

hue and a number of other We , Us ft Co. en

. como of the point at Jssuo. When the reso

fur tha addition to the high school bo no tilled
to suspend further work on the plans forsald
addition until the board had given the matter
further consideration. Mr. Graysuid In de
fense of his resolution that ho was opposed to
* this addition as the people iu that part of the
city did not want an addition to the high
school but wished instead a central school.
Thu present slto of the hlirh school was unde
sirable oa account of the diniculty with which
the build Ing was heated. The proposed ad
dition fell far short of the requirements of
the people. The decline of the ground on
the south side of the building virtually added
one more story to the proposed addition and
made the two upper stories virtually useless.
All Btorics above the second woro\iudo.sirublo
iu u school building , ana a two-story , twenty-
four-room building would como nearer the
needs of the people. Ho therefore was In
* favor of securing a site somewhere In that
vicinity nnd erecting Bitch a building. The
' resolution was carnud by u vote of seven to
* five.
A joint resolution was presented by Messrs.
Pratt and Livesoy. asking that no bids for
tha construction of now school buildings bo

tween contractors ana workmen are settled.
Mr. Pratt said in support of this that on ac
count of the present unsettled state of affairs
contractors wore liable to charge exhorbitaut
prices , and by waiting until un adjustment
was made , better prices would bo secured.

Ttio Unto War Spreading.
CincAao , March 5. The western rate war
continues spreading hi new directions. Up ,
to to-day all roads between Chicago nnd tho.
Missouri river hnd charged full tariff rates
on transcontinental freight nnd conHnod cuts
to local business. But two of the lines ex
tend their cuts to Pacific coast business , As
n result rates on first class freights were re
duced 23 cents a hundred and other classes In
proportion. When the Illinois railroad nnd
warehouse commissioners promulgated thdlr
tariffs on stole railroad freights , an agree-
' merit was reached among the interested Clil-
cngo roads thnt tariffs should bo adcpted
making these the minimum rates to bo
charged. The Wabash claims the Alton Ig
nored this and sent out tariff D per cent
below the agreed rates. In consequence the
Wabash to-day Issued new schedules , fi per
cent below the Alton. This again opens the
war between these two lines and other cuts
are tn order.

Sioux CITT , lo , , March C. [ Special Tele
gram to the BER. ] A presidential election
could not have produced more excitement
than the municipal election hero did to-day.
The Issue as to the mayor's oQlco was drawn
strictly on the temperance question. The
saloons have been closed without any help
from Mayor Cleland , who wns n candidate
for re-election , and the prohibitionists sup
ported Flynu notwithstanding ho was
the democratic candidate. Every ccx-
saloon keeper and the entire whisky Influence
were against Flynn. John AronsdorfE
nnd thrco other defendants in
the Haddock murder case worked
openly nnd energetically at the polls against
him. The German veto went ns n unit
acalnst him. The full force of the business
clement Which is opposed to prohibition ,
went against him. Tbo result is that Flynn ,
n democrat on n law and order platform , is
overwhelmingly defeated , and Cleland , n re
publican , Is elected by the anti-prohibition
clement. At this hour , 11 o'clock , nil but
ono ward Is heard from , making Cloland's '
election sure by over three hundred majority.
The vote as to the other candidates is so con
fused by scratching that it will take all night
to count it.

Democratic Gudgeons.
DBS MOINES , la. , March 5 [ Special Tele
gram to the BEE. ] The municipal election
hero to-day was quiet but very interesting
from the singular features Involved. The
chief fight was for mayor. The republican
candidate Hobt. Finkbluc , the man who
superintended the building of the now capi
tal. The democratic and independent repub
licans united on a citizen's ticket nominating
W. L. Carpenter , a barb wire manufacturer ,
and a democrat. The independent republi
cans were urged to support him a * an expres
sion of their opposition to prohibition. Lost
fall the same coalition elected a
license republican to the legislature and
the same reasons wer J urged this spring for
continuing the co-operation. The funny part
of the matter is that Finkbine , tno republi
can , proved to bo anantl-prohibltlonlst , while
Carpenter , the democrat , is a Methodist pro
hibitionist Of the strictest sort. Some of the
precincts were kept 'bpen late. The entire
vote at 10 p. m. had .been counted but the
probabilities are that-t Carpenter has been
elected. If so ho will give the city a strict
prohibition administration , which wilt bo a
paralyzing surprise to some of the democrats
who voted for him to-day.
lPrcss. _ ] The municipal election passed off
quietly hero to-day. W. L. Carpenter , a pro
hibition democrat , being elected mayor on
the citizen ticket.

olccs of friends I could hear with difficulty.
L'ou can't Imagine how h rd that was tw bear. "
"I think I can. "
"You see It had been a matter of only A cou
ple of years wltu me. don't think I was ever
what you might call strong , but when this trou
ble came on and kept growing upon me , it made
me weaker anil morn despondent than ever. 1
lad coldi a great deal and trouole with my
throat and head. My nose would stop up , first
on one side then on the other and It was with
diniculty that I could breathe through It at all.
1 would [ always be hawking and hemming
and trying to clear my throat. I was more
tired when I got up in the morning than when 1
went to bed the night before. My Bleep was
not sound , I was very restless. After a while I
began to have a pain over my eyes and through
my head. I was losing my weight and wns re
duced to almost a skeleton. I had no ambition
to do any work and the least exertion would tire
me. "
"Von speak about sounds being indistinct ? "
"Oh. yes. For along time I noticed that I
wonld have singular noises in my ears roaring
or buzzing sounds they seemeu to bo. When
my catarrh was worse lor that the doctors tola
mo was my trouble , or at least the beginning of
It especially In damp or changeable weather ,
these sounds in my euro would bo more distinct.
lly and by I found I couldn't hear as plainly as
1 used to , and Was afraid I would become totally
deaf. "
"Hut you hear bettor to-day ; you can hear my
voice quite distinctly , can yon not ? "
"Oh , res. I will tell you. Borne time ago , after
using different kinds of treatment , I took the
advice of a friend and went to Pr. McCoy's of
fice to Haingeblock. I found his office
But it was not very long before I had an oppor
tunity of seeing the doctor. II o told mo thut my
troubles were the result of catarrh , and to re
move them it wonld be necessary to remove the
cause. He did not tell me he could restore my
hearing entirely , but said he could help it , and
make me hear better.
"llcsides the trouble with my eyes.I had a con
tinual dropping of muscus from my head into
my throat , which when I wonld lie down I would
swallow , and it'vas not long before I found my
stomach was out of order my food would not
digest readily , and I had more or less of a pain
In the pit of the stomach nearly all the time ,
and after eating a hearty meal 1 would have a
distressed sensation in my stomach. My eyes , I
noticed , were nlso affected , and when I would go
out in the bright light they would pain me aud
water considerably.
"As I said before , I visited Dr. McCoy'a office ,
and began treatment at once aud began to im
prove , my general health was better at the end
of the Urst couple weeks of treatment ; now I
sleep well , eat heartily , arise refreshed in the
morning , do not hawk and bpit any more like I
used to , have no pain over the distressed
feelings after eating. My food seems to digest
oil right , me uyos do not water or pain mo any
more , aud the

Signal Dangers Which Arc Made
Known Before Consumption
When catarrh has existed la the head and
case has been left uncurcd , the catarrh Invnrl
nbly , sometimes slowly , extends down the wind
pipe and into the bronchial tubes , which tubes
convey the air into the different parts ot the
lungs. The tubes become affected from the
swelling nnd mucus arising from catarrh , and
in tome instances become plugged up so that the
air cannot get in as freely as ft should. Short
ness of breath follows , and the patient breathes
with labor and w 1th clltllculty.
In other cases there is n sound of cracking nnd
whet-zing inMdo the chest. At this stage of the
disease the breathing is usually inoro rapid than
when in health. The patlcut also has hot Hashes
over his body.
The pain which accompanies this condition Is
of u ( lull character , felt In the chest , behind the
breastbone or miner the shoulder blado. The
pain may come and go last a few days and then
bo absent for several others. Tha cough that oc
curs 1 u the llrst singes of bronchial catarrh is
dry , comes at Intel vain , is backing in character
and usnally most troublesome in the morning
on arising , or going to bed at night , and it may
bo tlio llrst evidence of the disease extending in
At flrst'tboro may be nothing brought up by
the cough ; then them Is a little tough.tenaclous
mucus , which the patient llnds great diniculty
in bringing up.
Sometimes there aio tits of coughing induced
by tough uiucous-so violent as to cause vom.
itlng. Latcron the mucous that is rained is
iound to contain small particles of yellow mat
er , which indicates that the Miinll tubes in the
lungs nro now alTectod. With this there are
