At about one o'clock yesterday little Robert Campbell, son of C. V. Campbell, met with what might have been a very serious accident. He was walking down the Frisco track, taking his father's lunch to him at the store, when a freight train on the Katy came along. The boy stopped to watch it, but forgot all about the passenger train' on the Frisco, and was standing facing toward the depot.

The noise made by the freight prevented him hearing the other train or the yells of the fireman who climbed out on the engine and tried to attract the boy's attention, but failed. The pilot of the engine struck him, throwing him off the track. Robert received two very bad cuts on the head one at the back and the other on the left 6ide each of which arc about two inches in length. Drs. Poague and Miller, who were called, found that the skull was fractured on the left side, but think there will bo no serious results.

half A dozex liyes reported lost Ihe Water Rolled Down the Hills at Covington Twenty Feet Deep In Places-Two Million Dollars of Damage Done In Cincinnati Alone. Cincinnati, May 21. Shortly after 11 o'clock yesterday this locality was stricken by a terrific wind and rainstorm, causing the loss of half a dozen lives and injuring many. The fury of the storm continued only half an hour, but in that time over $1,000,000 of damage was done in the business section of Cincinnati and as much more in other parts of the city and suburbs. Prior to the unprecedented falling of rain, dense clouds were seen to the south and the city became as dark as night.

It was afterward learned that there had been a terrific waterspout on the Lewisburg hills, in the southern suburbs of Covington, and it moved over the Kentucky suburbs into this city, passing up the Miami valley and causing damage as far away as Dayton, O. While storm damages are reported throughout Kentucky, the worst point seems to have been in Covington. The water rolled down the hills in a wave of 20 feet deep in places and was about 100 yards wide.

In this section outhouses and stables were carried away. One stable with four horses was swept over into the Covington ball grounds and the horses drowned.

The house of Mxs. Watson was submerged, but she and her children were rescued. Clem Davier, who was driving a team near the flood in the Kentucky suburb, had his wagon overturned by the water and was drowned. The buildings of the Queen City Bathing on the river front at Dayton, opposite Cincinnati, were demolished. All the towns opposite suffered from broken windows and houses be- tag unroofed, but the greatest dam vaa uuin ciuco vjx biic incr, cape cially to the business houses in Cincinnati and also in Covington and Newport, came from cellars being suddenly filled with water, it being impossible for the sewers and gutters to carry the water off.

Thursday, MISSOURI. May. 190i: Tim CUIJAN ICEI'UULIC. On May 20th, Estrada Palma, for many years the head of the Cuban Junta, in New York, was inaugurated President of the Republic of Cuba. Luther E.

Hickman, one of the Sixth District's members of the Democratic State Central Committee, announces that he will not be a candidate for re-election to that place. Mr. Hickman is State Supervisor of Building and Loan Associations, and in discussing the committee matter, says: "I am an officeholder, and do not think that it will do any harm for me to stay off the committee, even supposing that I would have no opposition for re-election, as I believe would be the case." Repuiiucan leaders in defending the army from the criticisms of those who do not approve of recent methods in the Philippines, have not sought to disprove these charges, but have impugned the patriotism of every man who dared appeal in humanity's namo for a cessation of cruelties. That any American should in this twentieth century advance the doctrine that "the army can do no wrong, demonstrates how far we have already traveled along the road of imperialism. Army worship has always preceded king worship; and following: the doctrine of army infallibility as certainly as cause and effect comes that of king in fallibility.

If an American soldier bo far forgets his American man hood as to violate the laws of hu manitv, he deserves not the de fense but the execration of the American people. Army worship terminated the Roman Republic and made Csesar dictator; army worship put Napoleon to rule over France. Army worship will sap tne foundations of free govern mcnt in any age. About the only Democrat in St. Louis, who has thus far been accused of "boodling" is Col.

Edward Butler. Butler's mouth is responsible for much of his trouble. Only a few months ago Butler told a newspaper reporter that ho had been offered $75,000 to do some extra nice work, but Butler said he refused tho offer and told them it took big money to buy the Butlers. Butler not only admitted he was in the market, but said he could accomplish big results with either party. After making these admissions the Democratic officials of that city kept a close watch on Butler, and it was found that his most regular associates were Republican aldermen during the Zeigenhcin reign.

The fact that Butler is trying to secure a change of venue by charging that he cannot get justice before either of the five or six circuit judges in St. Louis, and that there is a widespread public sentiment against him in that city, don't look right. "When a fellow is afraid to trust the courts and the people, it smacks very strongly of guilt. Death of Walter X. Ilaldeman Walter N.

Ilaldeman, president of the Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal Company, and one of the oldest active newspapermen in the country, died at hia residence in that city on the 13th from the effects of iniuries re ceived by being struck by a trolley car me aturaay morning Derore. Mr. Ilaldeman was born at Mays educated at Maysville Academy with uenerai u. s. urant and others of note In 1841 he started the Dailu Dime liper, which was soon converted into the Louisville Courier.

This he conducted until lSol, when it was sup pressed by military domination, Mr. naiueman being a Confederate sympa mizer. The Courier soon appeared at Bow mig ureen, ami men ac jasnviile and at the close of the Civil War Mr Ilaldeman resumed the publication of the Courier in that city until 1868 when, in concert with Henry vv atter son of the Journal, the two papers were consolidated and appeared as the Louisville Courier Journal, which has Bince continued under the same man agement. Mr. ilaldeman was a man or con siderable wealth, and was connected with a number of business enterprises in the South.
