Lieut.-Gov. W. A. Northeott was at the Madison Thurduy ,-ccfivingfriends and shaking hands in the Interest of his renomination for .the office he holds. The situation lie faces is one that threatens to result in his being thrown down in the State convention as the outcome of the contest being " made by Mr. Hamlin in the rivalry for instructions of the Eighteenth Congressional District. No opposition to his renomination has developed other than that of M.'. Hamlin s friends, but Mr. Northcott admitted today that a failure on his purl to take the support of his Congressional district into the convention would imperil his chances and bring a rival candidate into the now undisputed field For this reason he is extremely desirous of securing the support of Madison county, whose delegates, representing her big Republican tnajon- is conceded to be the one to decide Mr. Hamlin and U Temple Tin-litre.

The bright little operetta, "Cinderella, or Dress Rehearsal," scored a complete success last night. The audience entirely filled the lower part of the Temple, while the upper- portion was also fairly well filled. The orchestra began the overture promptly at 8 o'clock, and throughout the evening* there was none of the tedious waiting that is usually characteristic of ameteur performances. The score is full Of catchy music, and nearly all the airs are glimpsed 1 IlinoisO lass Company Receiving 1 Hlds for the Construction of'Two Xew Kni-niices. The Illinois Glass Company has in contemplation the erection of one additional tank furnace and the remodel- ling of one day tank that it may be worked with both day and night shifts. The plans for two furnaces are prepared and contractors are figuring on the cost. The remodelling of No. '2 furnace is fully determined upon as the furnace ;s very unsatisfactory in. its present form. One'year ago last summer No. 2 was remodelled from a coal consuming pot furnace to an oil consuming Dutch Hint.tank furnace. The Standard Oil Co. declined to make a fuel contract for more than one year and the first year's terms were very satisfactory, as the contract was made before the furnace was started. The charges for crude oil were raised the second year so that the. fuel of the oil consuming furnace is more expensive than coal, when the fuel is controlled by the .Standard Oil Co. To relieve thd furnace from the monopoly's grasp it svill be remodeled and rebuilt on plans similar to those of No. 5 furnace. No. 5 was built last summer and is of a new design which has prov- Tin n-fit Change 'Wrought hy the the \\ atcr from I<ako Mirliiffiiii liniiutiiff Into the Kiver. tician he expressed the greatest confidence that he would carry the district. Underneath his calm exterior was however a feeling of evident fear that Madison county may not do as he would like to have it do and that he might . be compelled to go into the State Convention without the indorse- ment of his own congressional district. Tie said he intends to make " a thorough canvass of the Eighteenth district in the interest of his candidacy. • He has been visiting some of the larger towns in.the district and is very much pleased with results of his visits. Montgomery county will surely indorse his candidacy and his visits to other prints lead him to believe that . the Eighteenth district will treat his / candidacy and that of Mr. Hamlin in an impartial manner and let the State at large choose between them. Mr. Northcott also said that the fact that Madison county having in 189(i instructed its delegates for him really made him Lieutenant-Governor, and having obtained, that position through the a,id of Madison county Republicans, he had the. opportunity to secure the reputation throughout the State that has been so favorable to him that no other candidate has been named in opposition to him up to this time. He ~ says that a failure of the party in Madison county to treat him fairly would be very humiliating and he is .satisfied he will have nothing to com' .plain of on the part of the llepubli- , cans of this county. Jjieut.-(iov. Nortlirott's Meeting, i Lieutenant-Governor W. A. Nort-h- •cott made a stirring address at the meeting held Thursday eve. in Crowe's Hall. The attendance was large and the address was well received. Lieut.- Governor Northcott went to St. Louis at noon and will make an address at a meeting this evening. At the close the Lieutenant Governor made an appeal to the voters for fair play and ventured the prediction that if Madison county is for him be will certainly be th<s next Lieutenant Governor, and offered to wager a box At Urueggemunn cigars witli every person pres-nt that his prediction would be fulfilled., This is certainly a good thing for the ex-Mayor, as he would win a big business no mutter how the contest ends. at in the overture. At its close, the CHICAGO, I'll.., January Ht. -Lake water is now fiowing up the Chicago river, the speed of the current varying from three quarters of a mile in the wide places to a mile and a half in the narrow ones. This is serving as evidence to those who cross the bridges today of the occurrence on yesterday of one of the greatest events in Chicago's history --the opening of the sanitary canal. An examination of the river at the Van Bin-en street bridge made today by orders from Chief Engineer Randolph showed that the current had a .Sliced of 1.4 iniles an hour. .Hist below the bridge, where the river is wider, the current was estimated at .8 mile an hour. Two squares above the Hush . street bridge the water is practically as clear as it is in the lake. Tl e screws and rudders of vessels lying tied up at this point can be discerned through several feet of water. Gulls have been sporting about during the day with as much freedom as though the lake instead of the river was beneath them. At the Rush street bridge the water THKUK are now;$400,000,000 in tho U.

THK Senate yesterday decided to vote on the financial bill which has been before It for a month. It passed the House in December. The Senators will have upwards of three weeks for debate on the measure. THE inquiry into the charge of brlb- e -y made against Senator Clark, of Montana, is developing evidence that will no doubt lead to the unseating of the Senator. There appears to be a' considerable direct evidence that votes were sold and merchandise. loyalty upon these men, and that they wore the enemin* of-the flag---"(lag- furlers'' of the worst type. Several Democrats replied and said they could not and would not . endorse the war in the- Philippines, yet they wqja for the Hag, they were for their country—even if it,.was wrong, and even thoitgh the flag represented the repression of liberty in the Philippines!'

Humpie, (Miss Burgess,) sat on the table idly swingingher feet. Sarah Ann, (Miss Heywood,) was eating endlessly. Sophonisba Spiv- ins. (Lucy Davis, )• was reading a penny dreadful, and they were all faithfully endeavoring to do as little sewing and as much mischief as school girls everywhere are inclined to do» From the first chorus to the last, they all did, excellent work. There might perhaps have been a. little more dancing, but there was no hesitancy or forgetfulness, or any of those things that send cold chills over an audience and so effectually kill out the delight of listening. Miss Helen Bin-bridge has a beautiful voice: It is sweet and has a wonderful carrying power. Her make up too is very good indeed, and she made an ideal Cinderella. The transformation from the Cinder Maid to the "Belle of the Ball" was a far cry, and she looked very lovely in her effective pearl-trimmed, trailing gown of pink guux.e. Mrs. Johnston (-Mrs. Jarvey) is a born comedienne. She identities hei self with her part with a perfect ab sence of sel f consciousness that so , rarely is seen in an amateur. Mrs. ! Greene (Miss Jones) made an excellent preceptress. Her make-up was faultless, and the dear HtUe French teacher (Iva Maupin) was piquant, volatile and sentimental, as she ought to be. Lucy Davis and Miss Heywood were also excellent. Lucy Davis' crying was so realistic that every one listening •cried from sympathy. The spiteful sisters (Mrs. Sparks and Miss Walter) were very good, indeed, and their duet and trio with Cinderella captivated the audience and received an encore. Daisy Creswick's make-up as prince was line, and the "stern, unyielding, uncompromising, cast-iron get-up of the visitor, Miss Prudence Pinchbeck (Miss Holden) was perfect.- Miss Lucy Black as the fairy Godmother lent a new charm to the character. The choruses and music, conducted by Mr. W. D. Armstrong, showed admirable training and retleeteil Clinch credit upon their leader. Throughout the whole thing -were new. bright jokes, puns and lots of fun. The TKi.wiu.M'H makes, its best bow for the compliment it received for veracity. The names of Misses Lillian Hoc t and Mamie Uudershauson, were mem- bars of the chorus and pc-roned their pints In a urnl satisfectory lunnrr, en altogether the most .satisfactory of any furnace at the glass works. It is economical with" fuel and turns but plenty of glass, both night and day, and it has . the reputation of being the best producer Of all the furnaces. No. 2 will be made on the same plans but larger, having thirty shops working in the two shifts When No. 2 was built there was not sufficient room to admit of expansion and the si/.e was curtailed somewhat. The increase in size o^ No. f>. furnace will more than double its working force. The new furnace wjll be .built on the same plans of remodelled No. •'>, if it is built. ; The increased cost of materials may forbid the proposed new furnace at present, but it is badly needed and, unless the cost of material is very much in advance of what other furnaces cost, the new furnace will probably be'buil*. The business of the Illinois Glass Company has kept increasing to such an extent that to keep up with orders the output of the plant must be greatly increased. The proposed addition is equivalent to three new' fuctories with, singly, the largest output of' any of-the factories there. It in adding to Alton three institutions that are big manufacturing plants in themselves, whioh-will employ fully seven-hundred additional men. boy's and girls. The increase in output will call for more men in the packing department, in the box factory, in the ' yards, and a general increase of employes ail around.- If the Illinois glass works continues to grow Alton will be obliged to put a hoop around it to keep it all in, and the manufacturing industry of the city will occupy the whole east end. The increase in the factories must cause the city to grow to keep pace with it, and it'will also put the Illinois glass works far in advance in si/e of any glass bottle-making works in the world. it gradually; grew^darker upstream from the sewufce carried by the rain. During the night the water in the river from its mouth to points on the south branch, where it enters the sanitary canal, was completely replaced by the purer waters of the lake. Chief Engineer Uandolph estimates that when the full volume of 3(10,000 cubic feet per minute is rushing through the controlling works at Lockport this change will take place six times within thoflimits of a day. He further estimates that the average speed of the current in the river will be one and one-half miles per'hour. THK Senate yesterday adopted tie resolution of Mr. Hoar as amended, asking for information, at the discretion of the President, as to the beginning of the Philippine war and the instructions given the commissioners who prepared the treaty of peace. There is a large majority of the Senate who are opposed to embarrassing the Administration in the conduct of the war. VOTE ON ANNEXATION.

The Terminal Troubles. ' The franchise ordinance offered by the Illinois Terminal Co., at the last Council meeting will probably be kept in abeyance until the special committee appointed at the conference has had an opportunity to use its best endeavors to effect a peacable settlement. There will be no steps taken by the city administration that may lead to serious trouble unless the Belt Line Receiver proves unwilling to enter into peacable negotiations looking toward a purchase of one-half interest in the Belt Line track by the Illinois Terminal. The 'Terminal does not seek trouble and will do all things reasonable to bring about a prompt settlement of the dispute. It was alleged at the conference that if ever the Belt Railroad Company had complied ith the pro vision of the franchise re- WHILE certain people looking around for timber for a Vice Presidential nomination on the Republican ticket, there is a great sturdy oak up in Iowa— marked' Governor Shaw— that would make fine material for the second office in the country— or even for the first, should Providence so decide.

Hoar, of Massachusetts, sent by cable to the Philippines, was the cause of the uprising of the natives there, and the present war, was followed by the report that Andrew Carnegie had .paid the cable tolls in order that the speech 'might be sent to .'the Philippines. These tolls. it was said, amounted to about $4 V <KM). When Mr. Carnegie was. ifeen at his home. No. •">, West Fifty-first street, New York, he said that he had not paid the cable tolls on the speech in question. "There, is no need, "he added, "for Senator Hoar's speech to reach the Philippines.

K, A TEL13QKAM from Washington to the St. Louis Republic says: "In the House, on Wednesday Congressman' 'Sibley of Pennsylvania virtually declared himself in favor of Republican policies and methods. His remarks in reply to Champ Clark are taken to mean that Sibley considers himself a good enough Republican from this time on. He stated substantially that 'the Democrats have ' no policy which commends itself to him. Not long ago Sibley was the loudest advocate of silver to be found in the IC^st, devoting his time and means to circulating l(5-to-l literature, even being prorai- .nently mentioned as an available man for*running-mate with Bryan," Sibley is not the only one, of Bryan's followers who has dropped the Nebraskan's foolish theories. Ex-Governor .Stone, of Missouri, it is stated, will oppose Bryan's renomination. The converts are flocking to the Republican standard in great crowds every day.

Frank Gennetti in the Relay Depot at East St. Louis. F,ynu claimed to be the father of three children f who had been committed to the Catholic Orphanage in this city a number of years ago, by his wife, upon her deathbed, some - time after her husband had deserted her. The oldest one of the three, now ten years old, was given / to Mrs. .T. Rippe, of Collinsvijle, to raise* A year ago Fynn made his appearance at Collinsville, and, meeting the little girl, took hold of her and tried to induce her to go with him.. Fynn told her he was her father the child asserted her father was dead; and would^ot go with Fynn. He tried to carry her off, but her screams attracted the attention of C. Frank Gennettl} a passerby, who interfered. Gennetti was told by Fynn that the child was'his,. but the girl screamed and begged Gennetti to help, that he compelled Fynn to release her and let her go home. Some time ago Fynn brought a suit for abduction against Gennetti. The case was tried yesterday in Edwards- vllle, anu Gennetti, acquitted. Both men went to East St. Louis, and while in the Relay Depot the tragedy took place, Fynn claimed that Gennetti was following, arid when Gennetti entered .jthe station Fynn called in a loml voice, "You had better quit- following mo or something will happen!" Gennetti, so the passengers say, turned half, way round, when Fynn ptrllttd. his pistol and discharged it at Geiinetti. The man fell to tin- floor unconscious, and died before he recovered consciousness. Fynn gave himself up to the authorities. Botli had been drinking, and appeared u> bo friendly during the trial in Ed- wardsyille. Fynn paid the* rallroud _ fare of'Gennetti to Edwarflsville, lui' declined to pry it to East St. Louis, and it is said this was she cause of the dispute. ., Big Consignment of Cars Coming.
