A bold robbery was very neatly accom
plished on West High street, between Center
and Factory streets, slout 10 o'clock last
iilghl. As cir No. 1 1, of the Citiiens' Street
Itiiilnny Company, was passing this point,
going west, the attention ol the driver, Fin
ley Moody, was attracted by a sharp whistle
on the south eiilu of the street in the rear of
the cir. While he was looking bock to see
if it as a would-be passenger trying to hail
the car he heard a sudden racket at his right
and turning hIhiuI taw a tbadowy figure
rapidly vanishing down the alley toward
Main strict. His first thought was for his
cash box, a tin coder rather insecurely at
taihrd to I Ihi Iri.ut railing of the car, in
which is dtpoiited the required amount of
money lor making tlwrige. It was gone, to
gether uitli the $U.tr, wbi.'b it contained. Ily
lliU lime the highwayman had entirely dis
appeared, and, as pursuit would hne been
wurre thau useless, Moody drove on to the
stable and reported the loss. The matter
was repurted to the police, but as there Is no
clue whatever, it will be a very difficult mat
ter In ju the rubber. This morning the cars
carry no (ash buifl on the outside.

London, July 27. As a mark of respect
for the late General (Jrant, the military bands
throughout Kngland refrained from the usual
Sunday selections ye.terday, but played dead
marches instead. The Daily Telegraph, re
ferring to (Jeneral (1 rant's anxiety to finish
his book, says: There is something of Wal
ter Scon's heroic grappling with financial
ruin in this act of the deceased warrior's lite,
which ought to be remembered in his favor
with bis other great claims to Knglish re
spect and admiration, when the service in
Westminster Abbey is held.
It is now announced that service in mem-
ory or Uen. (Irant at Westminister Abbey

I'resldent Hayes made an address of au
hour's length, giving a sketch of (Irant as a
youth, cadet, soldier, commander and citizen,
nnd in each instance illustrations ol traits of
manly character were exhibited.
He again referred to the propriety ol the
people, both North and South, uniting iu
erecting a National monument, saying, as tho'
church and school house were educators, so
would be a monument to Grant's memory.

to have un adverse effect upon the epidemic.

For some time there havo been rumors ol
the discovery ol a natural gns nell in town
and of steps taken to develop the find. A
few days since C. O. Funk aud others bought
several acres ol ground along Buck citek, be
tween Morrow's ice ponds and Factory street,
nnd hate had men nt work trenching and
spading nround, generally under the pule
light of the moon, by night, in the cndcivor
to follow the supposed vein of gas
thought to have been struck to Its source.
It was, however, as claimed, lost and a hen
trail hm l,een struck which is how being
worked for nil it Is worth; probably not
much. A quantity ol tho gas was submitted
to some of the Wittenberg scientists for an
nnalysis, but owing to lack of necessary la
cilltiea no satisfactory results were obtained.
.Vow it is proposed to secure n new supply
and Milimlt to nn analytical test by Mr. Virgil
Cubleuuto ascertain whether or not the gas
has any heating, illuminating or other valine,
bio properties. The owners ol the ground
say they have no eicctntlons of anything of
the sort, but say it in a manner that limy
mean more than the words they utter.

and was discharged Saturday. His father,
John Connors, keeps a saloon on Spring
street and the lamily lire in the same build
ing. On Saturday night .Mr. Connors and
his wife caught their son climbing out
ol the bed-room window with
$37 which lie had stolen out a drawer of the
bureau. They seized him and, after a long
struggle, succeeded in taking tho money an ay
from ulin. Later iu the night they went into
the bed room nnd found $100 miseing Irom
the drawer, and lour silver dollars which ihej
knew to have been ir their son's possession.
They complained to th police but asked that
nothing be said about it. They desired to
recever tho money without tnking criminal
proceedings against their son. This morning
Tom Iircnnan, a pal ol Conners's was arrested
for loitering, and held on suspicion of com
plicity. It seems to us that the City Council can do
no less ttan to accept Mr. P. P. Must's liberal
proposition namely to pay the expense of
n test, to be made nt tho foot ol Mite hell's
hill, cutting a trench U,0 feet long, in the
event that said trench does not add at least
one-fourth of the ninount of water now pro
duced from the wells now in use. In ens
that proportion of water is added lo the city's
supply from the wells the city Is to pay the
expense, ir this amount can be secured by
cutting 150 feet or trencli it is fair to infer
that a larger amount can be secured from a
longer trench. A good supply ol good water
can be got this way, nnd at once.
