At a heated conference between Post
master Fltzhugh and T. B. Daily, post
master of the. South side station, Monday
morning, Mr. Daily tendered his resigna
tion under protest. Tho matter has been
kept quiet as it was hoped that the differ
ences between the two postmasters might,
be satisfactorily settled. Tho trouble, it is
claimed,' crew out of officious acts on tho
part of Postmaster Fltzhugh. "When Dr.
Fltzhiigh returned from "Washington he
called on Postmaster Daily and Informed
him that a detrimental report had been
Hied with tho department against him. Mr.
Daily accused Fitzrijgh of filing the re
port. Fitzhugh denied this and said he had
a copy of the report In his pocket, which
Daily requested to see. ire asked to be
given a chanco to exonerate himself from
any blame. Fltzhugh refused and told him
there would bo a proper time for all that.
When Fitzhugh refused to show the re
port Dally insisted. "Fitzhugh made a dash
for the door, but Dally beat him there and
locked tho door and put tho key in his
pocket. He again asked to see the report.
Fitzhugh finally turned it over to him. The
substance of it was that Dally had failed
to report at the office promptly In the
morning. Tho complaint was from Fitz
hugh. ,, , .
Postmaster Daily was greatly exercised
but on account of tho age of Fitzhugh re
frained from assaulting him. However, ho
passed several uncomplimentary remarks
about the actions of Fitzhugh, and In
formed hlro that he. Dally, would nerve no
longer as postmaster of the South side
station. Fitzhugh attempted to smooth
things over without avail.
Postmaster Daily, when Eeen yesterday,
admitted the "truthfulness of the nhove.
He stated that he did not know whether
or not Fitzhugh had accepted his resig
nation, but said that it was made in good
faith. A rumor to the effect that Fitzhugh
visited the department at "Washington and
suggested that Daily's salary be applied to
the bond of the late Postmaster Frank
Mapes reached the ear of Daily and In
creased Bis "wratn. Dalty "was omr of
Mapcrf bondsmen. The Republican aspir
ants" for Futzhugh's position will profit by
the scrap between the two postmasters, as
Dally will prove a valuable witness against
Fitzhugh -when proceeding are brought to
oust him. Dally Is in possession of certain
communications from the postmaster
which will no doubt be sufficient to war
rant his removal when the proper timo

of Grading; Lexington Street
Again Before the Pnlillc.
Lexington street, which thoroughfare
has been a matter of contention in city;
affairs for somo time, is engaging atten
tion again. Whenever it rains the street
is almost impassable. When it Is dry the
matter of improvement is given little at
tention. The condition of the street and
the reasons for non-Improvement are many
and varied. Mayor Millard claims that the
street should be graded, but if it is graded
the cash on hand in the city treasury will
not offset the damage suits that would be
filed. Another reason given out is that the
railroad is not willing to co-operate until
the balance of tho city is Improved. It Is
further claimed to macadamize the street
as it now stands would be bad engineering.

Richmond, Va., Feb. 10. (Cobb's island,
a famous summer resort and life-saving
station, six miles off the Virginia coast, in
the Atlantic ocean, seems to be doomed
to annihilation by the action of the sea.
A terrific storm swept the island last Oc
tober, wrecking the main hotel and Hood
ing the island, making a trench across Its
center. Since then the disintegration has
been steady, until recently, when the high
tides submerged the island and washed
nearly all the buildings into the surf. The
hotel, church and a number of cottages
have been destroyed, and the life-saving
station and a few cottages are all that is
left. The captain of the life-saving sta
tion, from whom this information comes,
says there is no longer any doubt that tho
island is doomed and only a phenomena
action of the wind and water could possi
bly restore It. The life-saving station,
which was recently moved back from the
encroaching sea, is less than 200 feet from

OFFICE HOLDERS AROUSED.
THEY DO NOT LIKE THE PROPOSED
On the Other Hand, the Taxpayers
Think It High Time for Them to
Declare Just How Much Their
Servnnts Shall Be Paid.
The committee appointed at a meeting of
taxpayers in Independence Saturday to
draft a new salary blil for Jackson county
will conclude its labors to-day, and the
measure will be immediately lorwarded to
Jcfterton City. The bill, as drafted, has
been carefully worded, and if passed by tho
legislature will tend to disprove the old
adago "that a public office Is a privato
snap." The measure makes sweeping re
ductions in nearly every salaried office in
the county. It makes a slash at the sal
aries of chief deputies, and limits the num
ber of chief deputies to bo employed. The
bill eliminates employes of the county now
rated in class C, and concentrates deputies
into two classes, A and B. The new meas
ure unequivocally places the compensation
of deputies in class B at $03 per month.
Chief deputies, or thoso rated in class A,
draw a salary of $1,200 yearly, or at such a
ratio while in the actual employment of the
No official in the county, with the excep
tion of tho circuit clerk, can have over two
chief deputies. The circuit clerk under, the
new bill, is to be allowed four class A dep
uties. The section of the new bill which
regulates the salaries ot county officials
"Tho following salaries shall be paid the
hereinafter named officers of all counties
in this state which now contain, or herein
after contain, a population of 100.000 Inhab
itants and less than 400,000: Marshal. $2,400;
sheriff, $3,600: collector of the revenue,
J2.40O: treasurei, $2,400; prosecuting attor
ney. $2,500; recorder of deeds, $2,000; county
counselor. $1,500; clerk of the county court.
$2,000: clerk of circuit court, $2,000; clerk ot
criminal court, $2,000: coroner, $2,000; coro
ner. $2,000; assessor, $2,000; county surveyor,
Other details bearing on the measure
will be completed at to-day's meeting. It
is not likely that the salaries of county
poor farm officials will be touched, r.nd
that department will be left to the county
court. The new measure does not -jffect
the probate judge, superintendent of coun
ty schools, or the compensation to be paid
criminal or circuit judges. It is claimed
that the schedule of salaries submitted via
save Jackson county over $30,000 annually,
notwithstanding the fact that there is no
limit to the number of deputies to be ap
pointed in class "B." The number of dep
uties to be appointed in class "B is left
to the option of the county, circuit and
The committee. Messrs. S. H. Woodson,
O. P. Bryant and W. L. Webb, has oeen
besieged by county officials and deputies
who have thrown every obstacle in their
way to impede the work in hand. Tha
tirade directed against the committee only
serves to show to what extent county of
ficials of Jackson county resent nny in
terference with their Incomes. One of the.
substantial farmers of Jackson county, and
a Democrat, who attended the meeting
Saturday, gave it out yesterday that un
less the Democratic county officials were
more circumspect in their abuse of the
farmers of eastern Jackson county the
largo Democratic majority, which has al
ways rolled up heretofore, would dwindle
considerably by the next election.
T. AV. Green, a prominent farmer ot
Brooking township, stated yesterday that
the scare over spotting tho farmers by
county officials was all "bosh." Farmer
can "spot, too." Another farmer was not
so mild in his expressions as to tho ilgnt
that Is now on.
"If I have a big farm and hire a man at
$23 a month to plow it, and at the end ot
the month cross over to the field, after
paying him his money, and find that tho
work has not been done. I would call him
a thief. Now, that's the situation. We
were told that tho salary bill was just the
thing, and that fees would more than pay
for the work. Now we find that the salary
bill was used as a catch, and was framed
to take up all of tho fees, and more, too."
It Is claimed that the coming financial
statement will show that Jackson county
officials have absorbed In the past year
$S3.000 more than the fees taken In within
the same length ot tlm iThe fight made
on the committee has been one of Intimida
tion. Representatives have been sent to
the committee to show why the agitation
of a salary law at this time will disrupt
the Democratic party and produce a part
ing of the ways between tho officials and
eastern county Democracy. It was charged
in the official mouthpiece of the ring that
it was arranged by goldbugs, but this went
through one ear of the farmer taxpayer
and out the other, for Woodson and W. L.
Webb were pronounced Bryanltes. Tho
fear was expressed yesterday that the fight
would bo made at Jefferson City in a cov
ert way by officials. To prevent this a cora
mltteo will go down to urge the passage
of the measure, backed with big petitions
and men of influence.
NEW WORKHOUSE PLANS.
Proposition to Put Up n Xcw Building;
in the Outskirts of the City and
Sell the Vine Street Land.
Aldeiman Jewell has a scheme to get a
new workhouse for nothing and have pos
sibly a snug sum left. Ho will offer a res
olution at the next meeting of the council
providing for the appointment of a com
mittee consisting of the mayor, city comp
troller and superintendent of buildings, to
investigate the feasibility of selling the
present workhouse site and buying a tract
of ground in the suburbs of tho city and
erecting a new workhouse thereon.
If Alderman Jewell's plan Is not carried
out money will be apportioned at the be
ginning of tho fiscal year to build a new
workhouse on the present site. An ordi
nance was introduced in the council a year
ago appropriating $15,000 for this purpose
and Superintendent of Buildings Love has
prepared plans for a handsome building,
adequate to all demands, which can be
put up for this sum.
There is a great deal of objection on the
part of property owners to the presence of
the workhouse In Its present location,
which Is practically downtown, being lo
cated on Vine street bet.ween Eighteenth
and Twenty-second streets. If the present
structure was torn down property would
increase in value, and this would result in
the city" receiving a much .lnrger sum for
tho ground than it Is worth at present.
The tame amount of. land could be bought
in several sections of the. southeastern part
of the city for at least one-fourth what the
ground now occupied would bring.
Thero are about seven and one-half acres
of land In the four blocks comprising tho
workhouse property. This would make
ninety-six twenty-live foot lots. A very rea
sonable figure, $20 per foot, has been sug
gested, or $48,000 for the entire tract. It is
asserted that with the workhouse removed
and the property divided Into lots it would
readily bring at least $40,000. The city paid
$SO,000 for the three and one-half acres In
Holmes square, which is only a few blocks
nearer the center of the city, and on which
the improvements were practically worth
less. SPEAKER SMITH'S FAD.
"Will Tackle the Metropolitan Com
pany on n. Proposition for Commu
tation Tickets for Certain Hoars.
Speaker Smith is going to get after the'
Metropolitan Street Railway Company.
This is something of a fad with the gen
tleman from the Ninth ward, but he is
invariably in earnest, though usually un
successful. This time he is going to see
whether the city cannot compel the com
pany to sell 3-cent commutation tickets
good during two hours in the morning
and at the close of working hours. '
A bill Is now pending In the legislature
to compel the street railway, companies of
St. Louis to make this concession to la
borers and others who nre compelled to
use the street railways at certain hours
every day. Speaker Smith said yesterday
that he had given the matter considerable
attention and as soon as he couM get
around to it he woidd institute the proper
proceedings in the council. He gave it as
his opinion that the charter gave the city
the undoubted right to regulate street rail
City Counselor McDougal said that he
had not investigated the subject and until
he had he did not want to express an opin
ion, but he was of the opinion in a gen
'eral way that the charter enables the coun
cil to exercise exclusive control over the
streets of the city and that this power en
ables it to- regulate fares.
Ex-City Counselor Rozzelle said that the
franchise of the company conferred no
right to regulate fares, but he was of tho
opinion that the charter gave the city the
right to reduce fares within reason.
Chance to Use Discretion.
City Counselor McDougal is somewhat
exercised over misrepresentations ot his
decision regarding slot machines. He said
yesterday that his opinion In the matter
of licensing the machines was that any
person tendering the amount of a license
was entitled to a license, but this did not
protect him In using a gambling device.
The ordinance expressly says that only slot
machines which are not gambling devices
are to be licensed.
MARKET HOUSE PLANS.
Severnl Propositions Hnve Uolilicd Up,
but Relief Sought Is Not
Yet In Sleht.
Ex-Alderman J. W. KIdwell came for
ward yesterday with a revival ot his plan
for enlarging the market house facilities
by buying the entire block east of the
present market house and bounded by Wal
nut. Grand, Third and Fourth. Mr. Kid
well endeavored to Interest several city
officials in the matter, but his plan Is not
considered feasible. He figures that the
ground can be bought for $lu,000. and his
plan is for the city to pay for It In yearly
Installments ot $20,000. There is little prob
ability of tho plan being considered.
Superintendent of Buildings Wallace
Love is strongly in favor ot a thorough
purging ot the present market house of
tho Italian stall renters who have taken
possession of it. Mr. Love said yesterday
that this class of stall keepers is driving
trade away from the market house.
Private citizens are considering a plan
to build a mammoth market house at Sev
enth and Walnut streets, but nothing
tangible has yet developed in connection
with their plans.
Another Proposed Amendment.
Alderman Brown is determined to ree
that this city has a mayor. He is not will
ing to run the risk of the death of chief
executive and for the purpose of remedy
ing" an oversight in the charter he pro
poses an amendment to be voted upon
when, it ever, the police amendment is
before the people. The amendment will
provide that In the event of the death, re
moval, impeachment or permanent disa
bility of the mayor, the two houses of the
council in joint session shall elect a mayor
to fill out the unexpired term. Another
amendment will provide that in the event
of death, removal, impeachment or per
manent disability of the treasurer, audit
or, police judge or city attorney, the may
or shall appoint his or their successor or
successors, subject to the consent of tha
Not Flockinsr Together Just N'ovr.
There was no meeting of the board of
police commissioners yesterday because ot
the absence ot Mayor Jones, who was a
witness in the circuit court. Commissioner
Johnson was the only member of the
board present at the appointed time. He
waited about for an hour and then went
away In a bad humor because Commission
er Fyke did not put in an appearance.

the course of his sermon. "Supose every

, For a dozen years or more the names of
Sardou and Fanny Davenpprt havo been
intimately identified In America. Mks Da
venport has decided to sever this connec
tion, but before doing so she will gratify
the demand of theatergoers and give them
an opportunity to witness her in the plays,
of the famous "Frenchman, wherein she has
apHared, and which she has made famous.
Much interest will therefore be manifested
in Miss Davenport's engagement nt the
Auditorium, commencing next Monday. Ap
propriately enough, "Fedora" will serve as
tho beginning of this revival on Monday,
a3 It was the first play In tho series of her
Sardou successes. On Tuesday and Satur
day nights, "I,a Tosca" will bo offered. The
morality of this play has ben the uubject
of more than one sermon; dramatically it is
one of the most intensely interesting plays
known to the stage. Wednesday, Thurs
day and Friday nights will be devoted tn
"Glmonda," the latest of the great French
dramatist's plays, and thought by many to
bo his masterpiece. In scenic Investiture,
costumes nnd embellishments. Miss Daven
port has built a monument for herself to
which she can justly lay claim to being
the greatest producer known to the stage
in Europe and America. "Fedora" will bo
repealed at the Saturday matinee. Mel
bourne MacDowell Is at the head of Miss
Dacnport's supporting company. Every
lady on the lower floor nttending Monday
night's performance will be presented with
a Davenport silver souvenir as a token of
remembrance of Miss Davenport's linal
appearance In the Sardou plays.

that Mr. O'Neill, this season, is making
"Virglnius" one of the leading features of
his repertoire. In this character he has
met with an Instantaneous and Incontro
vertible success. Further interest will be
attached to his appenrance here in a play
written around the famous Lesurtiues
case, which revolves around tho advent

known on the stage as "The Courier ot
