a few fitting remarks for the repose of
her soul in the better land. Her friends

coffin, and a very respectable number of

A few months ago a crew of first class*
came here to work in the Broad
water Hotel at a salary of $40 per month
each. There was no bead waiter with
them* so W. H. Adams, who* was doing
janitor work in bar-rooms thought he*
woiiiLl try his hand. He went to the.
proprietor and gave him a a thousand
dollar talk claiming, to be a first class
head waiter and asked for the situation
on trial. Adams soon found that the
most of his men knew more about tho
busines than he did and, as they were
becoming very popular with tbe guests
he beg tn to fear he would lose his sit
uation. He went to the proprietor and
told him he could get a crew ler $25 per
month each. The proprietor not know
ing the real trouble allowed bim to dis
charge the crew without giving them
warning and supply their places with
the $25 men. They soon found that
Adams was more of a jackass than a
hotel man and several of them quit in a
few days and tbe others would have
done so only they werefinanciallyem
barrassed. Tbe action of Adams has
been severely condemned by the peo
ple here. Tbe discharged crew is still
in the city and may be engaged by Mr.
Williams in the new hotel.
