He was in the employ of the Wabash Rail

He left home but a short time before, and
Monday a dispatch was received by his

was brought home the same night, and the

that be could not be saved. His ailment
was originally malarial fever.

At th residence of Mr. Father Sween

wereunitsd in marriage Tuesday night.
The affair waa a very quiet one, although it

that it would occur. Both parties are well
known in the city, particularly the groom

About 1 o'clock this morning fire broke
out in the two-story frame building on the

The fire department responded promqt y

quickly enveloped the whole building and
also attacked the next one below it, oc
cupied as a meat shop. Though frame build i

The death of Mrs. C. Lohman at St.
Mary's Infirmary, yesterdsy morning, at 1
o'clock, will call forth expressions of sym
pathy for the bereaved husband from all
who know th circumstances. When Mrs.
Lohman accompanied her husband here,
she was in a precarious Btate of health, the
result of dropsy in an advanced atage, and
it was found necessary to place her under
the care of the Sisters at th Infirmary.
But the diseaae could not be arrested, al

The excellence of the Tenth street
sewer gste was demonstrated fully during
the late little swell in the river. When the
water came up against it the gate closed of
itself, closed so that very little if any water
could have passed through it even if no
effort bad been made to close it tight. It
remained closed as though sealed and
tamped by the government, permitting not
a drop of water to pass through it during
all the time the river stood over it several
feet. But as the river gradually went down
the outward pressure was leeeened, until

The case of Mary Jane Mahaffy, ad
ministrstrix of the state ot Belton L. Ma
haffy, vs. the Wabash, St. Louis and Pacific
railroad company, was taken up in the cir
cuit court yesterday morning. Plaintiff
sues for $3,000 damages for the killing of
her husband on defendant's road on the
10th ot March 1883. Deceased was a
brakeman on the road and had been mar
ried to plaintiff but little over three months,
when the accident occurred that cost him
his life snd made his young wife a widow.
Plaintiff is represented by Messrs. Linegar,
Lansden and Leek, and defendant by Mr.
S. P. Wheeler. The examination of wit
nesses for the plaintiff was concluded when

The man Keishler, telegraphed for by
the Cook Locomotive company, of Patterson,
N. J., Tuesday, was found by Chief Myers
yesterday comfortably ensconced at Mr.
Charles Ediker's house, opposite the Union
depot. He had been staying there since
his arrival in the city and run into debt to
the amount of over $75. He was sent here
by the company named to do some work on
the St. Louis and Cairo engines; tut got
on an occasional "bonder" and bag been
pecuniarily "busted" for some time, whioh
caused him to remain beyond the time
allotted him. He is a man of very agreea
ble presence, and doubtless a good machin

themselves so much about him. Chief
Myers telegraphed for th necessary cash to
meet debts and expenses, and will, when it
arrives, send Mr. Keishler home as direct
The temporary dismissal of the street
supervisor and reduction of the sidewalk
force was rendered desirable by reason of a
lack of work tor them during the nextfe
months. The sidewalks are now in better
condition than they have been for many
years. Many new ones of a substantial na
ture have been constructed and old ones
have been reconstructed where needed
Much work has also been done upon the
streets so that now uninterrupted passage
is given to toatus to or from parts of the
city that formerly were almost unapproach
able by vehicles during the spring and
winter season. The streets, too, will bear
well the test they are likely to b subjected
to during the slushy season that will cer
tainly follow this cold spell, when no work
can be done upon them. Thus everything
is left in good condition, comparatively,
and while the soason is upon us that little
or no work on streets and sidewalks can
be done, it would be a needless waste ot the
public fund to keep the usual force of men
upon the pay-roll. The two men retained
will have no more than they can easily
do to keep the walks in repair, and, in case
of an emergency, additional hands may be
employed. The force will be much under
the direction of Alderman McHale as chair
man of the street committee, who has in the
paBt given much personal attention to
matters pertaining to the walks, streets and
drainage, and uuderstands them thorough
ly. In view of all these things, the action
of the city council with reference to the
street supervisor and side walk force was
