We have been given to understand
that Mr. C. R. Woodward, 'candidate for
Alderman in the Second ward, is sound on
the Narrow-gunge question: belives that
the road should not be permitted to enter
the city where it has proposed to, without
giving some reasonable consideration; and
that the offers made the company by the
city some time ngo, and which the com
pany rejected with silent contempt, were
- The Narrow-gauye argument of "liiuh
taxes" will probably riot take well among
the laboring men who were employed at
good wages to do the work which has
caused the comparatively little increase.
With the masses of the voters strong levees,
good sidewalks and good sewers are very
popular, and since these things alone are to
blame for the actual increase in taxes dur
ing the last yew or two, it will be hrd to
find a man who would be mean enough
and inconsistent enough to praise and ac
cept tho great benefits and denounce and
refuse to pay the very reasonable price of
those great benefits.
High taxes?-Well, yes. But high
levees, also; and the former is not near so
much of an evil a3 the latter is a blessing
at least it will not appear so to those who
recognize the fact that high taxe9 are the
necessary result of high levees, and that in
high levees and strong levees alone lies

Graphic Description of the Sinkinfe

Tho Tirst Boat Launclied Towed to tlia
Bottom with its Living
Haii breath Escapes of the Saved A
Dead House Established for
II a i ww, April ". Tin- three surviving
pass'iiiTS oft lie Daniel Steliiiiianii, who
ure now in the city, tell graphic stories of
the wreck. Tiny say when the vessel
llr-t struck, the Captain ordered all hands
on ilecli. i ine boat was launched, und
Immediately all hands made u rush for it,
but before the lines could be cut the
vessel sank, carrying the boat with It.
The cries ami screams of the women and
children us the stern of the vessel sank
were liearln-ndliiu'iind pitiful. Captain Von
ScIkhuiIioik n and two men climbed up in
to the rigging. One of them was washed
off, and the Captain and the other named
Neiderniaii held on until rescued In the
moniiiii.'. The Captain was so numb unci
colli that Ncideniian had to use force to
pull him from the mast. As thu persons
who were landed in the boat were pulling
away from the vessel, an Italian grasped
the stern and begged to he drawn in.
Three of the four drowning persons
were clinging to his legs. The crew
in the boat leiused to take hiin, for fear
the others w ould swamp them. The Ital
ian at once dived, shook off thoe holding
his leg-, and coining up again seized the
boat, when he was hauled in. A lad named
Nickola jumped limn the bridge into the
boat just as it was leaving. Ho landed
on his head, but was uninjured. Latest
reports from the wreck stale that the
vessel is in about the same position. A
dead-hoii-e has been established on the
shore, and all bodies washed ashore are
I ii t there temporarily. Kleven bodies
have so far been recovered. Three
schooners with dhing crews will goto
work as soon as the weather Is favorable.
