enough so to make them enjoyable, while
the quaint sparkling humor which devel
ops in every scene and act, is calculated
to keep the auditor in a most delightful

A dispatch received last night by
Chief Myers from the new chief of St. Louis,
15. II. Tuufe, asked if one Willie Newbur-
ger, aged fifteen years, was still employed
at the Singer works here and, if so, why he
had sent home his clothing. Inquiry de
veloped the fact that Willie had gone and
the supposition is that he first intended to
go home to St. L mis and sent his clothing
ahead, but subsequently changed his mind
and went to Memphis without telling bis
folks anything about it.
The pmper officers of tho German in
surance company in which the property of
Mrs. Isiac Walder, up in the county, lately
lestniycd by tire, was insured, havo signi
fied their intention of sending a man down
here this week to settle the differences that
amso between their former agent and Mrs.
Walder, as to the amount to be paid by the
company. The building was insured for
two thousand dollars aud was totally de
stroyed. The former agent offered to pay
only twelve hundred dollars, which Mrs.
Wulder refused, requesting rather that the
house be replaced by the company, to which
proposition the ag. nt in turn refused to
agree. Thus the mutter stands.

ring for tho next time; seventeen coaches, a
total wreck, and the road-bed torn up for
a mile and a quarter. But, on the other

Our dispatches to-day give reliable
ugures as to the result of tho important
elections held in Ohio and Iowa Tuesday
Ohio is Democratic by a handsome majority,
while Iowa is Republican by a very much
reduced majority. The lessons to be draw n
from these results are imported ones. The
Republicans ought to have carried both
states, the former by 20,000 majority and the
latter by 40,000 or 50,000. That they did
not do so is an agreeable disappointment to
many Democrats. In Iowa, in 1880 the Re
publicans had a majority over the Demo
crats of 78,405, and a majority over all of
over 65,000; in 1882 the Republican plur
ality was 36,871, on a total vote J 1 ,000 less
mm m looyj me Democratic vote was
6,400 greater in 1882 than 1880, while the
total Republican vote was 35.115 h es in
1882 than in 1880. This shows that the
Republicans had a big udvantage to com
mence on, but it also shows that the Re
publicans were losing ground even then,
aud the Democrats were gaining. The
Democrats labored under great disadvan
tages this year by reason of their internal
disturbances in Cincinnati and elsewhere.
Ohio ha3 always been a Republican stati
on a full vote, but the Democrats have been
gradually gaining ground. Foster was
elected governor over Bookwalter in 1881
by 24,30!) on a total vote of 024,220; tho
total vote in 1880 was 724,041, and Garfield
carried the state by nearly 35,000; last year
the Democrats carried the state on a total
vote of 032,180, by a plurality of 19,000.
The Democrats certainly have reason to
mgratulate themselves, but should bear
their honors with becoming modesty.
To some extent the impression prevails
among mechanics, that the high grade
movement has been the cause of the present
stagnation in real estate improvements, and
to the same extent there is dissatisfaction at
the delay in disposing of the high grade
ordinance pending in the council commit
tees. These impressions ure all a mistake
and this dissatisfaction is directed against an
innocent matter. The high trade move
ment did not nip in the bud any contem
plated real estate improvement. It could
not have done so, simply because, when it
was inaugurated, there were no real estate
improvements in contemplation not oce.
At the time the high grade movement was
started nobody wanted to build, nobody
talked of building, evidently nobody
thought of building anything anywhere in
the city excepting Mrs. Salford, and she,
like the noble little woman that she is, has
gone ahead with her promised work in spite
of discouraging circumstances. Aud even
now, nobody wants to build, so far as we
are abl j to learn, on condition that the
nigh grade movement is abandoned, nobody
would build or begin to build were the
high grade ordinance buried in oblivion
to-dtty and were the Council to rivet the
city grade to ten feet below high water
mark with cast iron oaths sworn with one
hand upon a pile of gilt-edged bibles and
the other grasping glory. The fact is
aud it stares every mechanic and every
business man in the face nobody w.tits
to build upon the present grade and nobody
wants to do so. Men who have money to
invest in property improvements want to
put it above high water mark. They don't
want to put it on a level where it is Ibtblo
to bo vacated when tho rivers rine, or torn
away "in case that weak spot m tho levees
should break," nor do they want to put it
upon a level whom "accumulated" water,
our greatest curse, will tear the sidewalk
away from in front of it, the fences und
outhouses uwny from around it und flood
tho floors to the depth of an inch or two, or
more. Thu fact is, gentlemen, that this
lack of real estate improvement is due, not
to the fact that high grade was inaugurated,
but to tho fact that it is not an accomplish
e 1 fact. Tho fact is, that, while nobody
would build, so far as known, if the high
grade movement were abandoned us far as
it may be, there would bo such an activity
iu real estate improvements as was never
known in this city before, if high grade
wer-s an aecompliHuod fact. This is not
mere conjecture, it is positive fact and none
will dare deny it, And this activity would
notbo con lined to a change of existing build
ings to conform with tho new order of
things, either, but Iheio would bu immedi
