It is hoped that tho task maybe com'

The greatest possible care has bcon
taken that no coupon received should bo

the assortment is finished, bo recorded

The brieht little woman who has been
the object of so much attention spent

Mayor Grant and Heads of Depart

A long couferouco was held in the

attended by Mayor Grant, Commissioner
of HI root Cleaning Loomis, Commissioner
of Publig Works Gilroy.Presidont Wilson
of tbo Hoard of Health, Pollco Suporin.
tendout Murray and Corporation Connect
The subject under discussion was
street-cleaning aud how Commissioner
Loomis can be assistod in his great task
of keeping the streets of this city clean.
A general plan of campaign against
violators of ordinances who Insist on
defiling tho atrocta was formulated and
an appeal to householders to asalst in all
possible ways in lightening tbe burden of
tbe htroet Commissioner wni prepared.
It was also decldod to recommend tho
paago by the Legislature of Senator
Cantor's bill which provides for a codifi
cation of tho city ordinances.
fitreet Commissioner Xoomls still ad
heres to his original proposition that the
contract system must be re-established if
tho streets are to bo properly cleaned.
The Central Labor Union has taken
issue with tho new Commissioner on this
proposition nnd have requested bim to
continue cleaning the stroets by day labor
and to employ only citizens on the work.
When this actiou of the labor ormuiiza
tions was brought to the attention of
Commissioner Loomis to-day, bo re.
"This is all very well, but it doesn't
appear that the Central Labor Uulou has
mado auy provision for furnishing mo
with the extra amount of money 1 should
reiiuire to do tho work as they would Iiko
to have it doue "
Tho Commissioner has introduced the
Kuropeau sjstom of cleaning on tbo
aiphalt pavement of Chambers street and
ou Park avenue between Thirty. fourth
und Fortieth streets. Men are con.
stautly at w oik on those streets gathering
the dirt as fast as it aucuuulalss.
The owners of properly ou that portiou
of Madisou uveuuo which is similarly
paved have adopted the same system,
aud tbo result is that the asphalt paved
streets are kept very clean.

Nothlug was known of tho tragedy until H
tho next morning, when ihe policeman's -J
corpso was found in the alley. Ily that vH
timo tho gang was mauy miles away. al
Miskoll, Kit Carson and Tim Connors m
all well-known Now York thieves, formed
a partnership for out-of-town operations ralfl
about tho time of tho appoarsnee of In- sH
spector Byrnes on the tceuo as chief of 1 J
the detective force and his breaking up
of tho band that robbod Ihe Manhattan H
Hank was scattering consternation among , uiiflH
tho "crooks" in tho city. The trio .H
robbed the safe of tho Walter A. Wood JjH
Mowing.Machine Company In Trov and H
fell into tho bands of tho police up there.
Minkcll nud Carson wero sent lo Clinton '0
Prison for fivo years, but got out in 1861 H
and immediately went to work again at 1
their old trade. ' fH
Connors having disappeorod, they H
formed a new copartnership with ' Al- ,Ji

thioves of their own calibre, and under. '31

The gang was next heard of breaking a fll
safe in Jackson, Miob. They made a els i-H

Carson and Miskell. As long ns they were H
at large it wss morally certain that tbey ,J
would turn up, committing some equally ftH
desperate crime. ?i
