Sensation Created by the Failure of a Firm of Mill Thou-anJ Employes Rendered Idle. PHILADELPHIA, April Bros., owners and operators of the Aston, Knowlton and West Branch mills in Aston township, Delaware County, man- ufacturing doeskins, shirtings and jeans and employing persons, made an assignment Wednesday to the Delaware County Trust Company. John Rhodes, who, since 1881, has boen practically the sole proprietor of the plant, attrib- utes the failure to general shrinkage in the value of all textile fabrics and to lack of a market for manufactured stock, of which a large amount is now stored up. The assets are largo and it is believed that if reasonable terms are made by creditors the concern oan re- sume business. Samuel Rhodes, who was bought out by John in 1881, holds judgment notes to the extent of and other judg- ments amounting to were filled prior to the assignment. The credit of the house has been of the highest grade and John Rhodes was regarded as the leading business man of the county. The failure, therefore, causes surprise. The mills and 200 dwellings of the em- ployes cover 400 acres of ground and, in fact, comprise the whole settlement of Aston. _______________ BIG CORRUPTION FUND Allegeil to Have Been Used to Defeat the Prohibition Amendment in vania.

Rumors of the Sale of the Columbus Base Ball Club Again The Reasons Therefor. CoLU.Miics, 0., April :-5. The rumor of the sale of the Columbus base ball club to Indianapolis or Detroit is still going the rounds. The latest one is to the effect that Sunday games are to be stopped here and that no money can be made without them, and that the team has been weakened so badly by the loss of Baldwin, Orr and Daily that it is not much stronger than a minor league club and will not draw the crowds during the week that it did last year. While there is considerable talk of stopping the Sunday games nothing definite can be learned just now, but it is evident that the directors are uneasy from the fact that they are flooding the City Council and others in authority with complimentary season tickets. The club is making such a poor showing in the exhibition series that the people are becoming disgusted and it is hard to tell what the outcome will be unless it is greatly strengthened. Another Chapter in the Feud. CHARLESTON, W. Va., April 3.

Huntington, Miss., has been completely abandoned by its 500 inhabitants, about half of whom, with some of their stock, are crowded together on the levee, suffering from exposure, sickness and destitution. The others are living more comfortably in box cars. Many houses have floated away. Some residents of the neigh- borhood are also crowded upon the levees or have fled to the highlands. A similar condition of affairs prevails in nearly all the country around the break. The back water is spreading far into the interior. The Skipwith break has in- creased to 750 feet, the Ifita crevasse to and the others in proportion.
