Louis .1. He- I liun and Hugh Kiclmrdson. yulte a large.! number of Uepiiblieans called, on the Judge during U K . early morning, and about, jo o'clock he went j out with a party of friend* to make a few (-alls. Judge. Haneey is a line looking gentleman, about -4r> to 50 years of age. He is Judge of one division of the Circuit Court of Cook county. He is tho ch»j«e of the Itepubliean leaders of that county for Governor, and it is said that he will have the solid backing of the Cook county delegation at the State Convention. Should he get this endorsement it will only require 2.iO more votes to give him the nomination, which will not be lacking provided he gets the Cook county contingent solid. Judge Haneey is a new man -n politics, that is, this is the first time he has aspired to any office outside of the Judicial department. He has twice been elected Judge of the Circuit Court, and is said to be very popular. Judge Haneey is just from a tour among the northern tier of counties, and found a very strong sentiment prevailing in his behalf. In the heavy Republican counties surrounding Cook is likely to be found the Judges greatest strength outside of Chicago. These counties alone, added to Cook will make him the victor, in the convention. The Judge makes friends rapidly, and an excellent campaigner. Of his own prospects he speaks in the most confident terms. Judge Haneey and friends left on the 11:30 a. m. train for Edwardsville, where he spent the afternoon. Death of Edward Grady. Ed.

' Mr. H. R. Hudgens, of Kellenberger & Co., is in charge of the agency. The establishing of an agency by the Dozier bakery,of the biscuit trust, is the beginning of a war between the trust and a few non-trust bakeries. Kvery effort will be, made to obtain the business of Alton and surrounding towns. The staff of the local Metropolitan Agency, W. J. Redman, Oscar Cunningham, O. D. Gilson and C. W. Kremer, will leave for a trip to New -York city, Thursday, and a| week's stay in the metropolis at, the expense of the company. The company offered the trip as a prize to the staff making the largest percentage of increase in the intermediate class for the United States, and the Alton office took the prize. The staff will have all its expenses paid. Lieut. H. H. Hewitt says that there is a strong probability that the Alton division of Naval Militia will not live another year. The members *of the division have lost all interest in the organization and will not voluntarily attend drills. He is seriously considering sending his resignation to the Adjutant General, and unless some one can he induced to take up the responsibility, the company will disband. The disbandment of the company would be the direct result of the unfair treatment the boys received at the hands of the Adjutant General's Department last summer, when they were compelled to pay to that department a large share of the money duo lht ' "«• of it by wagons.

He was married in Alton to Mary Meehan, who died seven years ago. Since the death of his wife, his daughter, Miss Ellen Grady, who lived with him, has soothed his declining years with her dutiful care. Mr. Grady was a hard working man all his life and was active uj: to the last few .years. Last August, while on his way home from down town, he fell at Third and Market streets with what seemed a paralytic stroke. From that time he was confined to his home and has been an invalid. He leaves four children—Mrs. Thomas Busey and J. Grady, of St. Louis; Edward Grady, of Chicago, and Miss Ellen Grady, of Alton. All the children are here to attend the funeral, which will be Thursday morning at i) o'clock. Ser vices will be in the Cathedral. Fell from a jiitrliugtoii Train. A. F. Ullrich, who lives at Second iwid. Alby streets, -and works at the carpet-weaving, factory, was evidently born lucky. He fell from the Burlington train on the draw of the bridge at (i o'cloc'c Monday night, while the train was moving rapidly, and escaped unhurt. When the attention of the conductor was called to the mishap of the old man the train was backed up to the draw and there the lucky man was met walking to meet the train. . As the train stopped before reaching the draw, Ullrich went out on the back platform and sat down on the steps, after being warned by the brakeraan to remain inside. He had hardly seated himself when the train gave a lurch from its speed being quickened and he was'thrown off. Robert Curdie, Jr., saw Ullrich fall and told the conductor. It was supposed tho old man had fallen into the river and the train crew was surprised to find him not badly hurt by the fall. Ullrich lost his hat and his cane in tho river. K. H. Gouldiug's Sons are advertising in this issue a cut sale in prices for cash of everything in the store, with the purpose of reducing stock. One of the firm will, about April 1, re- tirr from business while the other will purchase the stock and continue the business. It is with this purpose in view that the cut sale is begun. Their stock is too large and inducements to turn it into cash will be offered such as are rarely given the people of Alton. Everything they have has been marked down, and bargains in all kinds of. goods, watches, clocks, diamonds, jewelry, silverware, stationery, etc., etc.. is the order from this date. Call and see the Gouldings, look over their stock, get prices and see if they do not discount St. Louis prices on same quality. Hon. H. J. Ham I in, Candidate for the Republican nomination for Attorney General, spent Tuesday in town calling on all Republicans whom he could meet. Mr. Hamlin's candidacy runs counter to that of Lieut. Gov. Northcot't, who is a candidate for re-nomination for the office he fills. They are both from the same district, and it is realized by all that but one of them stands any- chance of securing the nomination. Mr. Hamlin and his friends are seeking to control the district as against the Lieut. Governor knowing that if the latter, whose nomination comes second, should secure the prize, there would tie little or no chance for Mr. Hamlin. They are therefore working like beavers. However Mr. Northcot't is not slow, and is canvassing for instructions for himself. Mr. Hamlin has many friends who are pressing his claims for him in a spirited manner. City Court in Session. City Court held its last session but one for the term Tuesday and adjournment was taken to January 27, when the business of the term will bo closed up and tinal adjournment will be taken for the term. Judge Hope said there remains but a few cases to be disposed of at this term. Among these are the most important ones of the term, the Maley will case and the Fifth street and Ridge street paving injunction cases, both of which are under'advise- ment. Judge Hope has the first one and Judge Cook has the injunction case. Decisions will be given in these cases January 27. Kail way Notes.

Chicago, 111., Jan. 15.—Connection between the main channel of the big drainage canal and the Chicago river was completed today by the dredging out of the dam at Western avenue, and the water of the river was turned into the main canal for the first time. No formal ceremonies marked .the completion of the work. It is expected that the gates at Lockport will be finally raised Saturday, as the work in the canal below that point and the formal inspection and approval will have been completed by that time, and the waters of Lake Michigan will then flow unimpeded toward the Mississippi. It is probable that from now until Saturday the current in the Chicago river will tend toward the lake again, and that until the locks are raised, the drinking water of Chicago will be contaminated by sewage.
