A few days since, in answer to an
inquiry as to the extent of the diver
sion of business from the old lines,
word was telegraphed the Pool Com
mission that the Chesapeake and
Ohio was cot only taking horn fifty to
sixty cars of grain a day, but was tak
ing beer, woo), provisions and, in
fact, everything that was worth tak
ing at from 4 to 6 cento below the
trunk-line schedule, so it will be seen
the situation is becoming tlaiming
for the so-called short lines. Shipperp,
however, are very well satisfied with
the way things are running. The
opening of a new trade current be
tween the grain and provision produc
ing regions in the Wett, and the East
and Europe by the Chesapeake and
Ohio railway, and the forcing of com
merce from the old-eataMished
thorough fxreB to it was a bold
undertaking on I'm part of
Huntington, but the route is oaly
opened, not established, and it
remains to be seen what the outcome
will be. For direct expoit the new
line is a good as any, and for North
eastern Atlantic const and interior
points it will answer every purpose
where quick traneit ia not required.
But it ia not what the Newport News
route is or may be made thai intereeti
the public just now, but whether Mr,
Huntington is s'ti ong enough to E'ic
csssfully resist the power and influ
ence of the trunk lines which will bo
employed ngainst his venture.

The report of the Fire Department
for the year 1885 was submitted by
Chief Cleary yesterday to the Bca-d of
Police and r ire OommiaHionere ut their

beleund ot interests:
ME WATCB Sl'PPr.T.
I would respectfully call your imme
diate attei.tiou to tho scarcity of wator
or tire purposes in several portions ot
the city, namely : The entire lentrth ef
rrotit t-t'tet, (Ulieleeai tho .Ninth
Ward, (Scotland) the "Eighth Ward,
(Fort Pickering) the Tenth Ward, and
also in the neighborhood of tho tty
llo'iutal. To remedy the atove, as
roach as possible, 1 would sugeeat that
you, gentlemen, induce the Memphis
Water tympany to lay it twenty or
twenty-four inch main ou a dirett line
from their works to ChickAnaw street,
Chk'kfmw to Front street, and
Fioat street to Union street, with
hydrants conveniently located for the
protection cf oil and saw-mills, cot
ton compresses and the Memphis
Package and Grain Elevator. Fort
Pickering imperatively demands
at least fifty fire hydrants; twenty-five
tire bydniuta are anuaiiy necoeiary in
Scotland, and about twelve in Chelsea.
There should also be an oight-ltich
supply pipe extended from the water
company's main out Union street as
far east as the City Hospital, with
the above additions, together with an
underground inlet from the water
mams to all tiro cisterns, a better sup
nlv of water wonld then bo assured.
and, in ftct, are absolutely needed, for
in the absence oi an ample supply of
water, no tire department can he elec

I would respectfully urgi uron citi
zens the grmt irnt orlancetf acquaiut-
1111! themselves with snd commltlitig
to memory the exact bent ion of the
nearest signal box to their places of
business and residences, so they will
know, in cane ot tire, where to go to
compiunitate with the department.
In some inntancee, two or more BignRl
boxes are pulled for the snme fire. It
is better to wait it few moments and
give the ether box ample time to per
form its duties, then pull your box,
and both alarms will be communicat
ed correctly. Otherwise, there will he
a confusion which will undoubtedly
mil lend the department, I would alro
advise people who rely upon tele
phones to give fire alarms, to always
call the nearest engine company. It
requires no more time to telephone to
the proper place.
Thore is now 3150 feet ot good 2J
inch, and 200 feet of chemical engine
hose in service: 1700 feet of new and
800 feet cf good 2-inch hose in re

able 2i-iueh hose, making a total of
There are now twenty-four horses
in the department. On account of
poor condition several have been re
placed daring tbe past year. The
condition at present date of twenty
one is all that conld be desired. There
are three horses which are beginning
to fail and will soon be unfit for this
service. During the year three died,
three were iold and five were ex
changed. The best quality of feed is
purchased. Average coat of feeding
lor the year, per horse, $73, A long
felt want for this department is a
small pasture, say a few acres, con

Referring to the above expendi
tures, permit me to mention the fact
that tho Legislature of this State, iu
levying taxes, have allowed an equal
amount for the support of the Fire and
Police Departments rf this city. The
Police Department have six men
more than this department on their
pay roll, and one s'tttion-houne to
maintiin. The Fire Department fund
mutt purchase horses, harness, ap
paratus, hose, feed for stock, horse
shoeing, fdel, oil, lights, and repair
and keep in good condition all engine
bouses, apparatus, etc.; pay salaries
to a force almost equal in number to
the police; alto maintain the fire
alarm telegraph and onrnaker facili
ties. NIW ENOINB-H0USES WANTED.
In ray opinion there should be three
additional engine-houses built, and a
company organized and located in
eacn cf them for operation. One of
these should be tUtioned in the
neighborhood of Union and Front
streets, another plated near Anction
and Seventh streets, for the protection
of Scotland and Chelsea (the Eighth
and Ninth Wards), and the other lo
cated in Fort Pickering. The area to
be protected ia five and three-fifths
square miles, and tbe improvements
tli at are being made in the city are of
a large and expensive character, and
absolutely demand more protection.
I wonld also call yonr attention to
the nectssity of increasing the fire
alarm telegraph system by at leant 100
additional alarm boxes distributed
throughout tbe city.
Of the sixty public cisterns in use
at present fifteen are supplied by an
underground inlet from the water
works. Daring the year 759 def active stove
pipes were condemned and removed,
and 520 defective flues and chimneys
condemned und torn down, or repaired
and put in ea!e condition.

Mr. Moody will hold four services

will hold nearly 3000 people. The

of the city. The find, of the Sunday

o'clock a.m. Notwithstanding the
early hour 'this meeting will
be well alended. Twice as many
tickets have been distributed for
this service as for any other. If one
half the ticket holders get there the
house will he crowded. Many will
go because tbey have tickets for no
other service and lire determined to
hear Moody. Many will go because
that hour will not conflict with du
ties which are as necessary on Sunday
mother days. Others will select the
early Sabbuth service because of the
impressivenebs of the hour. The
zealous and devout cf all ages and of
all religions have delighted In the
"early sacrifice." The morning ia sug
gostive cf new ardor, fresh zeal, clear
mind aud purer thoughts. The pa
triarchs set up their memorial pillars
and their holy altars early in the
morning. The eiirliett sacred poet
sang about the "eyelids cf the morn

THE CAPACITY OF TUB BUILDING
being limited, the ticket system was
adopted by Mr. Moody's Bpecial re
quest, to give ever) person desiring to
hear him at least one opportunity to
do so, by preventing identical parties
from occupying and monopolizing all
the seats at every meeting. It is very
probable that inclement weather and
other causes will prevent many ticket
holders from attending, and as the
doors will be thiosn wide open to u'l
ten minutes nrior tj service, every
onetiiatcan then find places in the
building will be welcome. Mr.Sankey,
assisted by choir composed oi more
than one hundred, will begin with
musical service thirty minutes before
the time mimed for regular service.

aro about to tike steps to rednce they
out of collecting laxs due the old
city, of which a large amount remain
uncollected. By the recent B'.a'emett
of the debt of Memphis, tho Taxing
District having become responsible
by the isar.anca of compromise bondsr
the latte-r becomes the sole beneficiary
of any taxes now collected. Natur
ally it is the deeire of the Police and
Fire Cornruiraioners that the cost it
collection shall be as small t possible.
Tho receiver, like Tennyson's
"Brook," would, under the lsw
rttn on forever, or until all
the tsxes are paid, which would
amount to the mine thing, and the ex-
ensed incident il to his office would
e, if continued nu the preeent basis,
something over SG00, whether dol
lar is collected or not. Five years ago,
when tbo rot wan first passed, aud
Mai. Miuor Meriwether was appoint
ed, II. F. Dix woe employed at a sala
ry of $.'000 to asaitit him. Tl.i ealary
of the receiver was $2000 a year, and
ho was allowed large sums in addition
as fees. At the cxplratioAT of a year
the salary ol Mr. Dix wai re
duced Ho . $1C00 and Tavtor '
