The water department had its
troubles yesterday and all day at
taches were being ordered all over the
city to give attention to bursted wa

had bursted during the early morning
Every time a pipe is repaired some
special free instructions relative to
further protection of the pipes Is hand
ed out The men from the office
worked practically the whole day fin
ishing up a job at the head of Palafox
wharf about 430 oclock In the after
noon
L Hilton Green the former presi
dent of the board of bond trustees
who was one of the most earnest ad
vocates of the creosoted wood block
for paving purposes was rather dis
pleased when he returned home from
Europe some time since to find that
after his earnestness In having the
blocks adopted for some of the paving
the city had placed in front of his res
idence the brick paving Mr Green
based his desire to have the blocks
used from practical witnessing of the
wear and tear of the material In Lon
don Paris and other cities of Europe
and believes that it Is the best for pav
ing purposes But the fact that the
city placed the brick In front of the
home of the gentleman who was the
most firm ol the advocates for the
block did not seem to please him
much He kindly took the bond trus
tees to task in a friendly way upon
his return but of course will abide
by the plan as mapped out Mr Green
made extensive study of the wood
blocks as paving material during his
late trip across the water

THIEF STEALS
MANY TURKEYS
MIDNIGHT FOWL GATHERER HAS
BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL AND
HAS ELUDED ALL EFFORTS OF
OFFICERS TO CATCH UP WITH
HIM
Since Christmas night some thief
or a gang of thieves perhaps have
been making successful and wellpaid
raids upon fowl roosts and coops all
over the city and a number of tur
keys have been stolen The thieves
have thus far emded arrest although
the officers have had several reports
from their operations In different
parts of the city The police depart
I ment has been going on the theory
that the thief or thieves would try and
dispose of the stolen Christmas birds
but tas far no such attempt has been
made or at least the officers have not
heard of any such attempt
The butcher shops have been watch
ed very closely by the mounted offi
cers but no one with any turkeys or
any large numbers or who tried to
sell chickens have been in the vicinity
I of the shops A number of chickens
have also been stolen along with the
turkeys

A WAREHOUSE
LANDING PLACE OF STEAMER
i
MANTEO WILL PROBABLY BE
TENDED TO TAKE CARE OF
THE INCREASING BUSINESS
If plans of the projectors are car
ried out successfully the warehouse
on Palafox wharf now used by the
Gulf Steamship company will be con
siderately enlarged to make it a build
ing fully two hundred feet in length
and possibly two stories in height
This was the rumor along the water
I front yesterday but it would not be
confirmed and it would not be denied
by parties interested One gentleman
said that he thought the building
would be erected but that the details
would not be made public for the
present Another gentleman when
asked about it said that he knew
that plans were afoot for enlarging
the building or entirely supplanting
the present structure with a more
substantial one but that he would
not go into details as he thought the
information should be given out from
another source It was understood
however that the lessees of the wharf
stood ready to build but the steam
ship company had not yet signified a
willingness to request a larger build
ing right at this time
At present the building used is not
satisfactory it is stated from the fact
that room is at a premium many
times Then freight which is landed
here is forced on the wharf and has
to be moved by consignees hurriedly
This arrangement is unsatisfactory
and it is for the improvement of this
freight discharge and also for pro
tecting the consignments that the
larger building is desirable
From one source the rumor was
heard that the company intended
shortly to establish a double service
by employing another steamer not as
large as the Manteo This could not
be confirmed bv people who would
know In fact they asserted nothing
of this nature was contemplated
