the city. The water came down In such
torrents from the hills, however, that the
overflow occurred much further up town
than usual and the damage, therefore, la
correspondingly greater, The creek over
flowed at Sixth street and from that point
to Thirteenth street, several blocks in
width, was a rushing torrent of water.
All the stores on the north side of Broad

In some of them a strong current of water
was running. At the Northwestern tracks
at the Broadway crossing the water was
fully knee deep and the depot platform was
In addition to the damage done by the
overflow of the creek the storm badly
washed the hill streets, and rellars In many
parts of the city were flooded.
During the heavy storm at 10:30 o'clock
last night the electric light tower on
Broadway near the Methodist church was
blown down. Fortunately, the tower, which
Is 150 feet high, fell out along the street
and not against any of the buildings In

COIXTY W1SS I TAX FERHET C ES
Judge Macy Overrules Demurrer of
Judge Mary In district court yesterday
handed down a decision In four tax fer
rets suits overruling the demurrers of the
defendants and holding that they be re
quired to pay the taxes demanded by the
county treasurer. The ruling Is an Im
portant one and it will have a bearing on a
number of other similar suits brought by
County Treasurer Conslgny and now pend
ing In the district court.
The defendants demurred on the grounds
that they did not have sufficient legal no
tice of the assessment of taxes on the
property which It was contended thai'
owned and which It was alleged had been
omitted or withheld from assessment.
Judge Macy, however, held that whereas
the defendants had appeared before the
county treasurer in response to his notice
that such assessment would be made and
that whernaa such hearing before the
treasurer was of a quasljudlclal character,
they must be held to have had sufficient
notice. The court at the same time said
that the law was of such a fragmentary
and unsatisfactory nature that the question
ought to be passed upon by the supreme

5EWELL IS HELD FOR MIRDER
Insists, However, that Addlaoa Shot
and Killed Himself.
As the result of the Inquest held Thurs
day evening by Coroner Treynor at Avoca,
Elmer Newell was held on the charge of
shooting and killing Lee Addison. Newell
was plsced In the county Jail at Avoca to
await the action of the grand Jury, which
convenes there next week. He denied
shooting Addison and claimed that the dead
man eemmitted suicide. There were no
witnesses to the shooting, but Addison In
his dying statement accused Newell.
The evidence before the coroner's Jury
showed that Addison and Newell came to
Avoca Thursday morning from Oakland,
where Addison lived, and where Newell's
wife and child were visiting. Newell, how
ever, being a resident of Atlantic. Ad
dison and Newell were old acquaintances
and they had a number of drinks together.
About t o'clock In the afternoon they
walked to the Rock Island freight yards,
where they entered a coal shed. In a short
time the sound of a shot was hesrd and
Newell ran out, followed by Addison, who
was staggering snd who sank to the ground
after going a short distance.
Addison was taken to the office of Dr.
Spaulding, where, on being Informed he
had not lrng to live, he asked that Newell
be not allowed to escape as he had shot
him. This was In direct contradiction of
the statement of Addison while being car
ried to the doctor's office wljen, in answer
to inquiries, he said Newell had not shot
Newell denied that he shot Addison and
insisted that Addison shot himself. His
story was to the effect that after having
had several drinks together they started
toward the railroad yards and on their way
there Addison borrowed his (Newell's) re
volver. They went into the coal shed, so
j Newell asserted, at Addison's suggestion.
and were barely Inside the door when Ad
dison made some remark about a young
woman said to have been his sweetheart
and then shot himself.
The post-mortem examination held by
Coroner Treynor, however, tended to dis
credit Newell's story. It wss shown that
there wss an entire absence of powder
burns on Addison's neck and the wound
was on the left side and of such a char
acter that it could scarcely have been
Both Addison; and Newell belong to well
known families and both formerly lived In
Avoca. Following the Inquest Addison's
body was taken to Oakland.

Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will
Industrial, commercial and agricultural
progress continues satisfactory. Nothing
has occurred to weaken confidence, the dis
position being to extend plans further into
the future, and many plants have their
facilities engaged well lino next year. As
demand broadens there Is a natural ten
dency to enlarge capacity, which adds to
the already exceptional structural activity.
Jobbers have secured much more forward
business than at this date last year, espe
cially in dry goods, and the frequent re
minders of autumn temperature stimulate
retail distribution of wearing apparel.
Thus far the weather has not been cold
enough to harm the crops that remain to
be harvested, and another week of favor
able conditions should assure an unprece
dented yield of corn.
Krveral settlements maintain labor dis
putes at the minimum and mercantile col
lections continue prompt. A few complaints
of Inadequate transporting facilities from
manufacturing centers are attributed to the
grain movement. Hallway earnings thus
far reported for September were X.7 per
cent larger than last year's, while foreign
commerce at thla port for the laat week
ahowed gaina of tit.lS0 in value of ex
ports and 17, Ml in Imports as compared
with 194. The official report f exports of
staple products from all ports of the United
btates In August exhibited a gain of tis,
fcas.isJl over the same moMfe last year, or
more than G per cent.

generally are good for this seaaon of the
year, despite the fact that retail trade in
the agricultural reglone Is still retarded
by active farming operations. Uusiness
being handled by the railways Is of large
proportions, despite the lighter than ex
pected grain movement, due to farmers' in
disposition to take current prices for their
roducts. Gross earnings fur Autjusl were
per cent In excess of a year ago, when
the preferit wave if activity first mani
fested Itself, marking a continuing pro
gressive gain for that month in every

Features of note this week are the state
ments from Chicago that the present fall
trade has never been equalled belore and
that rail mills and car builders have a
yeur's business booked. At New York dry
goods Jobbing business Is less active than
last year, but It Is lvited that spring sales
of dress goods are of good volume. At
