I was stated in The Journal
recently that the city had purchased
5.0Q0 Trident wat er meters for $6.75
each, while the price which had been
quoted at Dayto n, Ohio, was $5.85.
The information on whi ch the state

the Keystone meter in which the wa

which controls the Trident meter, says
that it has never offered to sell meters
to Minneapolis for $6.75 nor sold any

Deputies in the sheriff's office and
others connected with the case of John

he has a family somewhere that he is

brought upon himself.
A the coroner's inquest at the
morguo tod ay the conductor of the
train on which the murder was com
mitted said that when he first ques
tioned Devine he said that has name
was John Mood. The man was dazed
when he made this first answer, and
then, as th suddenly remembering
something, he cried out
"Oh, no it isn't that. Devine is
my nameJohn Devine."
Devine from that time oh' took every
opportunity to tell those around him
that his name was not Mood and that
he had no home still sticks to his
story, and says he has never had a fam
ily and has been a wanderer for se

made the deputies suspicious, and they
will try to overcome his family pride
and get him to tell where his relatives
are that they may help him thru his
trouble. Th police departme'n't will
aid the sheriff's office in this attempt.
The coroner's jury, after a short sit
