The local markets yesterday were dull and
lower in sympathy with Milwaukee and Chi
cago; the former closed with wheat 13>j)@lJ-£c
lower than on Thursday. Chicago wheat was
also l%@lj^c below Thuesday's closing. Corn
declined l}^c for March and %c for May. Oats
also suffered from he bears to the extent of
34@^c and even pork was forced down in the
general squeeze closing 15@12c below Thurs
day. Money was ea6y at 1%@2 per cent.;
government bonds steady; states quiet; railroad
bonds were strong ar d from I to Z}4 cent,
higher. Stocks were active and strong, influ
enced by the arrangements made at the trunk
lines conference for the prevention of cutting
rates. Tho reactions were few and slight during
the day and the market, closed with the general
list, J^@lK per cent, higher. Green Bay,
Winona & St. Paul advanced 2%; Oregon Nav
igation 1; Richmond & Danville 1; and Dabnque
& Sioux City sold up to 70; Mining shares were
active and generally higher.
The committee of farmers from the Red
River valley stated their grievances to Air.
ManveL, of the Manitoba road, yesterday,
ana will continue their interview to-day.
It does not appear that anything v*ry
practical was accomplished yesterday, but
some good is likely to grow out of th«
agitation. It is certain that tha farmers
have great cause of complaint, owing to
unfair gradiDg of wheat, and it is as im
portant to the railroads as to the settlers,
that there should be a remedy.
Theee is aa ;:ppareiJt hope that the Bell
telephone monopoly is about to be broken.
That company has managed to absorb or
drive outaJl othe^telephone inventions, but
at last one has been secured which is not
an infringement on the Ball patents. It
has reached as far west as Milwaukee, and
it will be heartily welcomed in St. Paul.
If there is any institution which gives in
adequate returns for the service rendered,
it it* ihe Bell telephone organization.
A great many hopes will be dashed by
the announcement of the Globe this
morning that Gen. John B. Sanborn is to
eucceed to the vacancy created by the res
ignation of Judge McCrary. There has
been no scramble for the office ox judge,
but there has been a very lively
-canvass relative to who should
be senator in case Senator
McMillan should be the judge. It is the
failure of this programme which tears
the heart strings. General Sanborn is so
valuable and active a citizen,that while the
selection will be generally approved, it
will be regretted that he is to be prevented
from giving the attention to public inter
ests which he has heretofore done so well
The New York Mail and Express remarks:
Mr. McKinley was one of the most valued of
the friends of Garfield in the O. io delegation.
The Mr. MoKinley referred to is the one
sitting in a seat in congress to which he
-was not elected. If the journal making
the above observation had said Mr. Mc-
Kinley was one of the valued friend 3 of
Hayes, the Great Fraud, the statement
would have been appropriate, but it is not
true that the person named was "valued"
by Garfield in the superlative sense used.
The form of speech quoted is an implica
tion that Garfield was not over choice in
his friendships, and was a person of no
discrimination regarding the merits
of men. It ia- also unjust
to every other gentleman
who was a member of the Ohio delegation
daring Garfield'd lifetime, for the simple
reason that the statement is untrue. With
the exception of R. B» Hayes this person
MoKinley i 3 one of the smallest, most
slippery men who have crept into public
life by the sufferance of the .Republican
party in a quarter of oentnry. The money
of high tariff, protection monopolists Bent
him to congress, and the only attention be
has paid to public affairs has been to rep
resent his owners. It is tiresome to have
every seal wag that turns up, classified as a
friend of Garfield. To have been so ranked
would at one time have been an honor, bat
the claim has been made so often and by
such a class of men that when great inti
macy with Garfield is claimed, sus
picion is aroused and upon analysis it is
found that the claimant-, have no ground
to stand on. If the present hou?e of repre
sentavives does justice to itself it will un
seat this Mr. McKinley, who through par

outrage upon the constituency which re
ARTHUR, ON THIS TRACK.
Ex-Gov. Fpster fired the Administration
heart. Thefrienda of Arthur are coining out
of cover. After the bold and aggr&sasva
declaration that Arthur canaot carry Ohio, i
the time for action seems to have come,
and the man. inside of politics have flocked
to Washington full of schemes. ' .
The first thiag put on the air is the im
mortal statement of a lot of Repub
lican congressmen that * any
Republican, "no matter who ,-h*
may be" can carry vOhio. Having settled
this point, the next thing on the docket is
cabinet reconstruction, and the whole thing
is mapped oat. Folger is to drop his port
folio, and Morton with his big purse, is to
be recalled and made secretary of the
treasury. Brewater, the dude attorney
general, is to be sent to France, and Fol
ger is to try to retrieve the scandal in the
department of justice. The Pennsylvania
politicians, while they are demanding
Bre wstei's removal, do not take kindly to
this i programme, and Arthur
is worried to hit upon
Borne plan to keep the peace with them.

All the cooks in the incongruous Repub

lector Robertson, it is stoutly given out,
and Mr. Arthur nave cue to an encier

organize the machine, and start
out. the ' strikers to work up a
delegation for Arthur. •It is conceded
trnt usder the plan of choosing the del
egates by districts, instead of by the state
convention ejstem, that a solid Arthur
delegation is impossible, but the bosses
expect to peenrw a ■ preponderance of the
delegates, with the aid of the custom house
and other resources based upon the spoils.
This is an outline of the game of push
pin in low and ' tricky politics that
ia being matured by Arthur
and his friends. The corruption
of 1880 is to be repeated, and g-. lden
btream.3 are to flow to buy the presiden
cy again. The volume of "soap" is to be
large and free. Some of the old actors
will take a hand once more, but there is a
new crowd, led by men like Robertson,«ho
-will take the places of Dorsey and the set
who pulled the wires four years ago.
The campaign of 1884 thus promises to
be, on the Republican Bide, more dark,des
perate and corrupt than the campaign of
four years ago. Will such a
corrupt conspiring be allowed to succeed?
That is the question before the American

[Special Telegram to the Globe]
Washington, Feb. B.— last there S3ems
likely to be a successor to Jadge J-lcCrary . It
appears to be understood that Senator Mcilillan
wants something which Eavors more of a tine
cure, rather than a laborious United
circuit judge&hip. Senator McSlillan was always
at variance with hard work, and he hopes to find
something a little better with a life tenure. He
could not take this vacant jndgeahip without
having to be industrious, am in siiteof the
groat desire of a good many people to have him
out of the senatorship, he resolved to stick.
In view of Senator McMillan being out of the
way, the Minnesota delegation have united in a
petition for the appointment of Gen. John B.
isanbom. of St. PauL This is alinosc certain to
secure Gen. Sanborn tueDlace. : - */ ■
General Sunburn Interviewed-
General John B. Sanborn, on whom the man
tle of Judge McCrary will probably fall, was
interviewed by a Globe reporter at his resi
dence on Jackson street, at a late hour
last night. Although aroused from umber,
he was found courteous and affable, and re
sponding to inquiries, he said that if tendered
the judgeshiii he would accept. ;■*'■-:;
"Of course," he said, "the position i& one
that involves great responsibility and labor; I
have always worked hard, and ex
pect to continue to do ' so.
if the position is tendered me I shall goto work
fast tnd bard. The immense labor connected
with the position is one reason,
I suppose, why it was declined ' by
McMillan, as he is in poor health.
As a matter of fact I would not «>arn as much as
I do at present in my law business."
When asked if he had received any tender of
the position, he said that he had had no infor
mation whatever, excepting a telegram from a
friend in Washington, telling him to wait for a
letter, the contents of which he knows nothing
about. Before leaving Senator Sabin called on
him and asked if lie would accept the
judgeship if it were tendered, to which he re
plied in the affirmative. In speaking of the
general chances of the judgeship falling to Min
nesota he said that this state had the best show
ing for the reason that during the twenty years
and more of Republican rule Minnesota had
been allotted only one judge, Judge Nelson,
while lowa had had about ten judges.
Gen. Sanborn is 58 years of* age, but as activa
and vigorous as a man of for;y . He came to St.
Paul in 1857 ana secured a largo law practice
which ho has ever siLce maintained except
while in the military service daring the war.
He was appointed adjutant general of tha state
when tho war broke out, and a year
later wav mad $ a colonel, and weat south with
his regiment. He soon ro»« to be a brigjidier
general, and was breveted major-general for
gallantry in the sorfieo. Ho kas served throe
lerms in the house and one term in the senate.
His present law practice r*nks among thejargebt
in the city.

Four Small Blazes Last Evvtifasr, All Evi
dently the Work ot > . 'lla.its,
At abo-.t 7:15 last evening, an attempt was
made to sound an alarm from box 32, corner of
Rice and Martin streets, when the key broke in
the box, and the officer running to box 17 at the i
corner of St. Peter and Summit avenue sent in
an alarm from .that box. The cause was the
taking fire of kindling wood under the stove in
an up stairs bedroom in the house of James
Brown on Martin street, bat Officer Dorcne had
entered the premises and thrown a lounge which
had caught from the kindlings, out doors aid
stamped out the balance of the fire befoi ■ the
department rived. ..
The second alarm of the evening was sounded
from box 13 at 8:21, and was caused by the in
cendiary firing of a small stable belonging to
Wm. Kasmirski, on Fourth, near Exchange
street, and directly in the rear - of his butcher
shop, 179 west Third street. The stable con
tained two horses, which were somewhat singed
before t&ey could be extricated from the burn
ing structure, a cow for whose release a hole
had to be cut through the structure, which
caused considerable excitement among the spec
tators, and a wagon whose wood-work was badly
scorched, were saved, and a small quantity of
hay destroyed. The loss is set down as from
$50 to $75.
The Third Fire.
Before the fire at Seven corners was fairly out,
Mr. John Bell, residing on Minnesota street,
saw a shaft of flame burst out from the rear of
Mrs. Casey's boarding hoase, No. 73 East
Fourth street. This was at 8:54 o'clock, and
an alarm was turned in from box No. 23. The
department made good time in getting to the
front, and the fire, which proved to be in the
shed addition to Mrs. Casey's house, was speed
ily pat out. As, in the fire near Sevea corners,
the cause was not ascertained, but it is believed
by the department, and all present,
that it was the work of fire bugs-
Tie damage does not exceed $50 and the loss is
covered by insurance.
Tlte Fourth Fire.
The apparatus of the department had just
about returned to quarters when the gong
sounded en alarm from box No. 24, at 9:30
o'clock. This proved the most destructive
blaze of the evening. The fire was in the barn
in the rear of John Snyder's ealt.on, No. 375
Jackson street. It was occupied by F. W.
Luley, the butcher, who had two
valuable spans of horses in the barn.
The horses were gotten out and quite a stubb m
fight ensued on the part of the department. The
loft was filled with hay, and it burned very vi
ciously, fully a half hour elapsing before it was
The barn was owned by the widow of Chris
Stahlmann and it is damaged to tne extent of
§100, and perhaps more. The barn was insured.
Mr. Luley's loss was difficult to ascertain,
but it is thought to be confined inside of $100.
The origin of the fire is unknown, but it is as
cribed to incendiarism. : * .

Washington, Feb. —Congressman Eaton,
of Connecticut, was asked this afternoon why
he objected to the resolution deploring thedsath
I of Wendell Phillips and he replied: "I do not
propose to allow the house to pass &ueh resolu
tions about a mau who openly proclaimed that
the constitution of the United States is a
covenant with hell, without some discus-
I sion." A prominent Pennsylvania politician
said to a Star reporter to-day that a quiet move
ment is on foot in that state to elect delegates
to the National Republican convention, who will
be pledged to Gen. Logan. Under rules adopted
at the last convention gates must be elected
by each congressional district. These delegates
will be elected early in March, and he says that
a canvas is being made throughout the state in
the interest of Gen. Logan. ' He says that he is
satisfied Logan will be nominated.

Speaker Carlisle is acting as referee in a very
bitter contest which is now going on over the
office of elictioner of the house. This position
was favorably held by Harry Rogers, who is press
ing his claim and is backed by Senator Har
ris, of Tennessee, and others,who are stockhold
ers in an electric light company organized some
months since by Rogers. (Speaker Carlisle has
referred the matter to Architect Clark of the
capitol. but the letter says he will take no hand
in the affair. Rogers is incidentally making a
fight to secure the p ace of assistant electrician.
The elder Rogeis is well known throughout the
south as author of some the most sensational
venomous rebel poetry yet published.
FOE THE BELIEF OF ABUT OFFICERS.
Through the efforts of Representative Steele,
of Indiana, supported by Davis, of Illinois,
and Va»ce, of North Carolina, the house passed
a general bill designed to cover the case pre
sented iv many bill* for the relief of officers who
served in the late war. An act passed earl in the
irar provided that when a regiment became re
duced below the minimum a vacancy should not
be filled, and when a company was reduced
below the minimum there shou'd not bo a
prcaotion to a vacant lieutenancy in that
■ The practical operation of this act was to
work injustice to many brave and deserving of
ficers.' In some comamnds the order of the Bec
retary of war in pursuance of the act wa* ob
served, but in many rpgiments and companies
promotions were made to the vacancies before
tho secretary 'a order reached the . k .:nies in the
field and oSicers served ' until the
close of the war, but w.re not
mus:ercd or paid as for higher grade.
In commands that were not at the front the law
did not operate so unfairly, and tho object of
the bill passed to-day is to place offic^ra who
did active duty at the front upon an eqnal foot
ing with those who did duty at t'.ie rear. Ten
vacancies occurrel in the office of second lieu
tenant to one in that of colonel, and they
would have been filled by promotion of meritor
ious non-commissioned officers or soldiers but
for this inhibition act of conarros3.
The bill provides that officers who were com
missioned prior to June 20, 1862, and actually
performed service under their commissions or
were prevented from performing service by rea
son of being prisoners of war, or sick in the hos
pital, or suffering from wounds received in the
line of duty, shall bo mustered for the whole of
the time for which they were commissioned.
Also that where regiments or companies were
up to th 1 minimum number entitling
them to commission and commissions were is
sued but were prevented from master until after
the casulties of war had reduced them below the
minimum before the commissions were received,
they shall be mustered. The effect of this bill
would be to enable all officer: who come within
its scope to the difference between the pay they
actually received and the pay they would have
been entitled to had they been mustered.
MONEY LENT BY BANKS.
Western and southern men are urging the com
mittee on banking and currency to recommend
that the national banking Jaw be amended so as
permit banks to lend money on bonds and
mortgages, and the committee has • the subject
under consideration. It is proposed
that the priv^tge shall extend to banks in towns
and cities ha*t«g a population of 20,000 and
upwards and that they be permitted to lend on
amount equal to one-half of their capital and
STAND DOLLARS FOR TRADE.
The committee has authorized a favorable re
port on a bill providing for exchange of stan
dard dollars for trade dollars, and the treatment
of the redeemed dollars as bullion .

Washington, Feb. B.—The president to-day,

Gen. Wm.T. Sherman,, general of the army,
having this day reached the age of sitty-four
years, is, in accordance with law, placod on the
retired list of the army, without restriction of
pay and allowances. The announcement of the
teverance from the command of the army of
one who has been so many years its distinguish
ed chief, can but avtuken in the minds not only
of the army but of the people *f the United
States mingled emotions of regret and gratitude.
Regret at the . withdrawal from active
military servitude of an officer whose lofty sense
of duty has been a model for all soldiers since
he first entered the army in 1849, and gratitude
freshly awakened for services of incalculable
value rendered by him in the war for the union,
which his great military genius and daring did
so much to end. The president deems this a fit
ting occasion to give express!' in this manner,
to the gratitude felt towards General Sherman
by his fellow citizens, and to hope that Provi

happiness in relief fioin the active duties of hb

--; . .' NATUIsALIZATION.
The secretary '■'■ of state transmitted to the
house to-day copies of all correspondence on
file in the state department in relation to the ar
rest at Lodz, in Russian' Poland, of lieinhard
Wagner, a citizen :of . the United States., The
correspondence siunre-thafc the state department
was notified of the complaint made by Wagner,
that on returning from the United States | to his
native country, he, had been arrested and his
passport seized. The department took imme
diate steps to ascertain the truth or the com
plaint, and found that the governor of Pet rokow
claimed that Wagner was a Russian subject, al
though having an 1 American passport. V : Secre
tary Frelinghuy6en"in a letter to Minister Hunt
refers to the story that Wagner- had been
exiled, atd says, "this government cannot be
lieve thfit a government ■which, like that of
■ Ka.=sta,'has lost no opportunity of cultivating
acd extending the friendliest "relations, should
liave si» far disregarded the evidenceand -ight of
protection of the government of the United
State* whica Reinh-jrd Wagner presented, in his
lawfully issued |xassport, and turned a d*;;i' par
to the courteous intercession made throng x, yon
in hi-» behalf, as to seize upon him and consign
him to exile m tsiber.a. ' No governai^nt could
be expected to', look calmly and be
hold the infliction upon one of its
lawful citizens of such punishment. Subse
quently it was ascertained that Wagner hhd not
been exiled, but by bribery of the Bnseian po
lice, he had escaped and returned to America.
In the last latter of correspondence, Sacrctarv
Frrlir'Ejhuysen calls the attention of Minister
Hunt to the statement made by the governor of
Peterokow,in his communication about Wagner,
in which he says: "The American passport
with which he was provided was taken away
from him, as> in his quality as a Russian subject
he had no right to it." To this the secretary
objects, and says: ''This government will
never admit the claim of a loc±i or offi
cer of a foreign government to decide t^&t a
boi a fide holder of ai American passport has no
right thereto. Such a paper is the highest evi
dence that the person to whom it was gi anted is
a citizen of the United States, entitled by our
own la 6, and by the generally accepted law of
nations, to the protection due, at home or
abroad, to all citizens, whether native or natur
alized, unless it can be shown by
their own acts that they have voluntarily
ceased to enjoy their right to such protection.
That is a question to be decided between the
two governments and to claim that a subordin
ate of one tA them will have the right to deter
mine it would show disrespect toward the
foreign states which it would combat." The
secretary diracts the presentation by
Minister Hunt to the Russian gov
ernment of a proposition t for a naturalization
connection between the United States and Russia
which shali distinctly enunciate, and at the
same time limit the claims of that government
over those ofjonginal Russians', allegiancy natur
alized here, who may return within Russian jur

unfulfilled military obligations to that govern
A number of the members of the house com
mittee on commerce expressed their views
before the committee on the subject
of inter-state commerce. Reagan and
Clardy will give their opinions at the

bers who have spoken on the subject before the
committee, expressed themselves in favor of tho
commission. In some instances the commission
recommended, is one to secure data for future
legislation, those advocating it believing that
there is not sufficient information before the
committee to act with intelligence. A majority
of the committee, however, seem to favor im

_ _ A DAKOTA COMMITTEE. , .
A committee of fifteen citizens of Dakota
appeared before the senate committee on terri
tories to-day, to advocate the passage of a bill
providing for a constitutional convention for
the territory, aud :to : oppose the recognition of
the recent convention at Soux Falls, on the
ground that it did not fairly represent the peo

The president approved the sentence of dis
missal in the case of First Lieut. William L.
Clarke, 21st infantry, and First Lieut. Joseph
F. Cummings, 30th cavalry, tried and convicted

An order will be issued from the war
department to-morrow, dismissing them
from the army. A. R. Spafforu, libra
rian of congress, to-day submitted his
annual report of the counting, completed in
January, showing 573,441 volumes, and 170,010
pamphlets. The increase in volumes during
1888 was 33,365. The number of copywright
entries for the year was 25,274, an increase of
8,356 as compared with 1882 Copyright publi
cations received during the year 44,378, ot which
; 4,584 are volumes of books, 11,452 periodicals,
11,101 musical compositions, 7,241 engravings
and other works of tho graphic arts. The re
port contains a reference to three thousand
volumes of bound newspapers, American and
foreign, of great historical, commercial and
political value, transferred to the library from
the state department. The library is receiving
additions at a more rapid rate than any other
library, except the British museum. The works
of graphic art, including lithographs, line
engravings, mezzotints, photograveures, chro
mos, etc., now number more than 15,000, and
are very rich and valuable.
THE SHIPPING BILL.
Mr. Frye, in his remarks on the shipping bill
to-day, snid it would enable America to take a
step in advance of anything that had bean, don c
for its shipping interests in the last twenty
years. He hoped the burdens and barnacles
placed on those important interests by our ami
law, will be removed, and something done to
enable us to recover our supremacy on the
ocean. Speaking for hiuself nlone, he said
there is but one way on earth, in his opinion, by
which to revive American shipping, and that
was, to pay subsidies and bounties, and, as far
as he was concern ed, he was in favor of both.
Mr. Vest, on behalf of the minority of the
committee from which the bill was reported,
said although they acquiesced in the bill report
ed,they did not believe the bill touched the main
difficulty which struck down our commerce.
Other countries permit their citizens
to buy wherever . they could buy
them cheapest. It was reserved for the United
States to go back to barbarism, to the restric
tion days of Oliver Cromwell, and say to its
p3ople,"they should not buy ships in the cheap
est market. This, and the tariff system of the
United States, were the fundamental causes for
the decline of American shipping. Mr. Vest,
submitted an amendment, providing for free
6hips and free material. The bill as reported
was placed on the calendar.
The sub-committee of the house judiciary
committee, consisting of Broadhead, Maybury,
Bisbee, and McCord, to-day heard R.T. Webb,

in character,but may be summoned np as fol

i these:-. tharesolution of Senator Beck, oiler
ed yesterday, offering to discharge Dudley, a
colored laborer. Senntor Beck, on ascertaining
that nothing he could do would secure tho re-,
instalment of tno man, said he did not care to
go further with th* matter.
.Senator JKiddleberger offered a resolution pro
viding a joint committee of both houses, three
Senators and live members of tho house, t> in
quire and report the causes of all removals of
subordinate" offices made by the secretary, and
eergeant-at-arms of the senate, the clerk,
s-ergearit-at-ara«c<, doorkeeper and postmaster of
the house. The r»solution farther directs the
committee to repi. rt how many disabled and
other soldiers have b^en removed, and the states
to which they and all other discharged and ap
pointed persons belong. Also whether the ciril
service act applies to congressional appoint
ments. In presenting the re.-olution, (Senator
Kiddleberger said he supposed the resolution of
Senator Beck was intended as a columbiad
aimed at somebody, and so far as he
(Riddleberger) was concerned, he
was ready to go the full
length which anybody could wish in the direc
tion of the Investigation suggested. Viiginia
had less representatives among the government
employees "than Kentucky and much less than it
was entitled to, and he would like to ascertain
whether the civil service applied to subordinate
appointments of the houses of congress, and not
to one house. He had inti .nations that appoint
ments were in the interest of senators from
Virginia, and wanted to show among other
thing? the want of foundation for such charge*.
Senator Frye reported the new shipping bill
agreed upon by the committee on commerce, en
titled '"a bill to remove certain burdens from
the American merchant marine, and to encour
age tho foreign carrying trade." Senator Frye
made an oral explanation of the bill, and in con
cluding his remarks said he hoped it would re
ceive careful consideration.

Senator Halo called np the corf erf nco re
port on the Grcely relief expedition.
The chair announced that the bill, from the
point of view of parliamentary laws, was in
poFsession of the house of representatives, and
no motion or remarks could be made relating to
it except by unanimous consent.
senator Hale asked for unanimous consent
owing to emergency, to take the bill up.
Senator Ingalla remarked that much had been
said about "emergency," when in fact no tz
pedition could leaye before May. Ii" sovore y
criiicized condnct of t v o secretary of tlw navy
in "'impertinently attempting," as legally said,
to interfere with tho legislation of congress by
sending a communication to the members of
the one honte on the subject of legislation while
that subject was under consideration by tho
other house, and with the view to preventitj.'
an agreement between the two houses.
Senator Halo defended the secretary of the
navy, claiming what he had done was not im
pertinence, but entirely proper.
Senator Ingal.s also referred to the reports he
had read in the public prints to the effect that,
already and before any bill, on the subject of this
expedition had been passed by congress a ship
had been bought by the secretary of the navy
for the purpose.
Senator Hale said, the secretary of war and of
the navy together recognizing the urgency of
the situation, had, on their own personal re
sponsibility, arranged for the purchase of a ship,
and if the government did not want it t''«ro was
no obligation in it to take the ship. The point
of parliamentary law was gotten over by .1 tug
geetion from the chair, that the secretary of
state take a communication to the house show
ing the condition of the bill.
The matter then dropped and the senate took
up the Mexican land grant titles bill.
Senator Bowen spoke at length on the amend

amendments were also offered, most of which
were rejected. Thj debate was participated in
by Bayard, Conger, Plumb, Van Wyck, Bowen,

the whole number of bills introduced was less '

To the Editor of the Globe:
The communication of the city engineer to the
council on Tuesday night last, published in the
Globs of Wednesday morning, is singularly de
fective and erroneous.
He claims that this defective sower should h*
used to save persons who erect booses the ex
pense of cesspools. Shall, then, a whole com
munity be exposed to noxious exhalations and
malarial diseases to save expense to persors who
erect houses without cesspools, < r rather shall
they not be rightly and justly subjected to the
expense of providing proper con
veniences, as persons have been who erected
buildings in the past?
The engineer alleges th*' the sewer can be
properly flushed before the completion of the
water works. In this ho assumes too much, for
if this is true, why are water works needed at
all? But it is not true. To say that the bower
can be properly flashed and cleaned of ell im
purities before the completion of the water
works is the sheerest nonranse, and shows more
emphatically than any thicg • :• '• his weakness
of judgment and lack of capability for his po
He also assumes that, to discontinue the use of
the sewers to those who use them can only be
d.ne at great expense and injustice to liousn
holders who use them. Why was
not this thought of before
any sewers were constructed and permitted to
be used,with defective arrangements for drain
age and flushing. But is there no injustice
inflicted on those who do not uto the sewers, by
being subjected to an intolerable nuisance, en
dangering health and life?
He says the sewers have been recently Hnshe-J,
"and from personal examination since I am con
vinced that too trouble has been removed."
No konest, thorough examination wonld jns
tify such a remark. It is not true "that the
trouble has been removed." Hundreds of resi
dents will confront this bold and defiant state
ment of the engineer and deny its t'utlifulness.
To make such a statement is an insult to a suf-
ing community. We do not hesitate to ex
press oor own belief that this engineer is incom
petent and incapable of grasping this matter of
sewerage construction and properlycondncting it,
or,he isjself willed and anoandid and unwilling to
admit his mistake in constructing an in prop
and defectively prepared sewer, ami after
ward* attempting to flush it with a pint. cup.
Wi'l the council be so far influenced by these
false statements, an unprofes i«nal assumptions
of their engineer as to give no proper heed to
the requests of the petitioners?
Can the council do less than institute an in
telligent, candid, disinterested, competent and
fair investigation of this matter, and eeek for the
statements of rosidents,as to whether "the trou
ble has been removed,"aDii,?il3o,seek tho profes

Inspector of Building*, Johnson finds that in

day he drove to Arlington hill.-;, and that section
of the city beyond tin tracks on Bice street,
and counted in the former section over fifty
houses under process of enaction for which no
permits had been if sued, and in the latter nearly
thirty. He inquired into a number of the cases,
and found that those building the houses had
cither never heard of the building ordinance or
thought that it only applied to buildings within
the tire limits. All promised to apply for permits
