PROPOSES TO BUY .
NO. 6 ENGINE-HOUSE
Petition From A. D. Brown Look
. ing to Settlement of UN
Claim Against the City.
A. D. Brown, owner of th properly on
the southeast corner ot Twelfth street and
Washington avenue, yesterday tendered to
Mayor Zlegenheln and City Comptroller
Sturgeon a proposition to purchase from the
city, at a reasonable prlee. to be determined
by the Mayor, the Comptroller and three
disinterested persons, the old No. 8 englne
bouro, located on Seventh street near Olive
street.
The offer. If accepted, would terve the
dual purpose of relieving the city of prop
erty 'Which It has heretofore sought to oeli.
and would enable the city to reimburse Mr.
Brown for damages sustained by-hlra In th
widening of Twelfth btreet from St. Charles
atreet to Washington avenue. In his con
rocnlcatlon he states that he has no ulte
rior reason for wanting the property, and
would agree to rent the building to the city
until such time as a no v.- structure would
be ready.
The city has been anxious to dispose of
the old No. 6 engine-house, and the move
ment went so far that an ordinance was
passed by the Municipal Assembly author
izing the rale at not less than 175.000. This
amount was not bid. and the building was
not sold.

In a statement appended to the proposition,
and recommend that the engine-house
property be sold In order to reimburse him
for the portion of his realty on Twelfth
street which is now a part of the street
proper. As the ordinary revenues of the
city will be Insufficient to wipe out the ob
ligation by the first Tuesday of April, they
urge that the city remunerate him by sell
ing the old engine-house.

predicament as the result of the failure of
the Municipal Assembly to appropriate the
sum duo him. UN building on Twelfth
street was started InlSSJ after the Assembly
had decided to widen the street, and he
abandoned thirty-live feet of his land for
use as a ttrect. under the new ordh0nce.
The city, however, did not order the worl:
commenced, and now the thirty-Are feet
ere part of the street, while Mr. Brown ha
not been paid for it.
"The commission," eald City Counselor
Schnurmacher, "assessed the damai;. s to
the surrounding property nd reported !t
flndtnea to the Circuit Court. The city has
the right to conform to the court's judg
ment within one ear. If this be not done
(If the appropriation is made) by the first
Tuesday In April. Mr. Brown will not b
able to recover his damages for ten years,
as the Judgment cannot bo renewed before
that time elapcs. Mr. Brown, therefore.
Is In a very unfavorable situation. If he
does not set the J10:.6C2S; before April, he
will havo to wait ten years; meanwhile his
land is being used as a street and he U not
acquiring- any bereflt. The city Is tulng tho
thirty-five ftet, but has no legal title to it."
The affair has now fulfilled all the re
quirements of law. nnd nothing renmlns to
be done except for the city to meet the ob
ligation. Mr. Brown signifies his willingness
to accept tho old eng!ne-houe. which the
city has desired to ?tll. as part pajment.
leaving to the Mayor, the Comptroder and
three bu&Ine&s men the matter of deter
mining on a reasonable price. It Is thought
that other sites, wbteb more perfectly dom
inate the downtown dTjrtrict, would be moro
suitable for an engine-howe.

Texarkana, Tex., Oct. IT. A. B. Little,
the defeated candidate for the newly creat

"If you marry Charlie. I'll kill him and
you and jour mother and mjself."
According to Mrs. Ida Kroech this was
the threat that was made against her last
week by a rejected suitor. The threat, she
Eavs, was made at her boarding-house. No.
12 Olive street. Now It is up to the suitor
to make good. a Mrs. Kroech marr.ei
Charlie vesterday.
Charlie Is none other than Mrs. Kroech'a
divorced husband. The coupl- vvtre first
married nine ears ago, disagreed and got
a legal separation. The hand or time healed
the wounds caused by the disagreement nivl
recently Mr. ur.d Mrs. KriK-ch concluded to
remarry.
Meantime, Mrs. Kroech. who Is a hand
some woman, had other admirers. One of
them fell madly In love with her and In
sisted that she marry tim. But s.he refused,
as she and her former husband had Lecoiue
reconciled and agreed to resume their
marital ties. It was then. sas Mr-.
Kroech, that the rejectesl suitor pointed a
revolver at her head and made the dire
threat. Fur that reason they concluded j es
ttrd.i) to be quietly married at Clayton.
Mr. Kroech conduct!, a book More at No
Oil Pine street, and has prepared to glvo tha
rejected suitor a warm reception "ir lie at
tempts to execute hl.s threat. He has al'o
made nrrarueinfiii fer th.. ..f.fv rte i.i.

. them. But. they sty. If he shovis the bast
uiNimsiiion to interiere. they will Immedl
ately tell all about him.
The Kroeclis are Catholic. The rejectel
suiter Is a Irotestant, and Mr- Krorch
ay she told him that thU. If no other. vva
sufficient reason fo. lis tejeetion
Fears Her Son Is Wedded.
"I accepted the congratuHtlon" of my
friends smilingly leanse I would t'ot for
the world have admitted to them tint I w:m
ignorant. But at the' same time my heart
was broking"
This wa.s the expl matlon that Mrs. Emma
Schrcrrkl of No. HJ3 North Twenty-second
street mr.de Io a Kepubllc reporter jester
d y of her reason for coming to f'lajton to
ascertain definitely whether her 10-year-oUI
son wa- really married to a Miss Dora
I'endler, who lives on Evans avenue, west
of Wbittler street.
Mrs. Fendler sas that her friendi have
be-en congratulating her for the last six
weeks over her i.ew- daughter-ln-Iaw. She
had not herd that her son was married un
til she received these eongratulatlons. and
then smilingly acknowledged the felicita
tions rather than to admit that her sun
William was so unmindful of filial duty'as
not to ask Her consent.
But after her friends weze gone she would
approach William, she says, and ask him in
the kindest manner If he was married and
if be did not know that his first duty was to
her. And then William would smile, but
that's all. But he continued to lire at "home
and the congratulations continued to pour In.
And she would continue to question Wil
liam, but all to no purpose. And all this
time, sajs Mrs. Schremskl, her heart was
breaking.
The suspense has at last become unbear
able and Mrs. Schremskl Journeyed to Clay
ton yesterday afternoon to examine the
records. Neither the name of aon William
nor Mls Fendler were Inscribed thereon
Mrs. Schremskl departed, saying she would
examine the St. Louts and Belleville mar
riage records.
Other Victims of Cnpll
In addition to Mr. and Mrs. Kroech. there
were ten additional victims of Cupid who
wended their way to the county seat of St.
Louis County to find connubial bliss.
The first couple to reach tho Gretna Green
were Frederick Mack of Indianapolis and
Miss Sadie Mae Annls of Elmwood Park.
They were married by Justice Greermfelder.
