been a time when Ctiroitus bad greater

better condition generally and when ita
immediate prospects in every way were
better than they are now. Over all of which
there is reason tor general rejoicing.
The rules were suspended and an ordi
nance rushed through the council at its
last meeting, increasing the city attorney',
salary to $730 per annum and fifteen per
cent, of the fines actually collected, which
will amount to about $73 per month and ia
not too much if the attorney is a competent

It will have the effect of inducing good ener

crowd the other kind out. It is understood
that if a good man is elected the corporation
counsel will be abolished, as soon aa th.

In anticipation of a largely increased

Lohrhas made some important changes in

facturing and handling soda water, beer
and ale. He has supplied hii factory with
new machinery of the latest improved pat

Another important change is in bis cooling
and storage facilities. Heretofore he hu

minor improvements which will enable bim
to better accommodate the large trade he

A committee of gentlemen yesterday
passed over that portion of Eighth street
upon which gravel has boon placed, and
though they sought diligently for any sign
of mud in the furrows of the heaviest
wagons, they were disappointed. The
layer of gravel, though quite thin at some
places, was not penetrated anywhere. It
would doubtless have been better to have
waited until the street was entirely dry
before the gravel was put on. light layers
could then have been successively spread
upon the solid bottom and packed down by
the teams passing over it; but to have wait
ed so long would have necessitated regard
ing. Probably the principal error, in that
portion of the work between Walant and
Cedar streets, was to run gravel up along
either side of the street, and thus prevent
drainage while the centre was being tilted.
But after this gravel will be spread over the
entire width of tho street as the work pro
