cooking they desired, blocked the wheels of
the engine and hose cart by placing a rail
between the sjiokes and then left. Had
fire occurred during this time, especially
at night, where prompt and quick work
would be required to save property, these
obstructions would have had to be removed
before the apparatuses could be muved from

might be put out under ordinary circum

Work as Possible this Season.
As was iiilimali-d In the I.l.rxiAl'H of
f last wvi-k, the Council lias paid for the
and" for the proposed Improvement of the
slop channel at Ahlahula Harbor. At
I he meeting of last Wednesday a resolu
tion was adopted directing the publication
ill this paper, of an advertisement calling
forbids for dredging out not less than 10,-
000 nor more than 50,000 cubic yardsof the
iiiiudemucd land, and for the sale of bonds,
to nmit the expense thereof. The bonds
ate to liear Interest not to exceed six per
cent, pernnnuin, and are to be issued in an
ticipation of the Aitgnst installment of
luxe levied and assigned for the purpose
of ilariior improvement.
It is expecled the amount of money re
ceived next August will amount to (2500,
and when it is received the bonds will im
mediately be paid. This sum will not be
sufficient to complete the dredging, but the
work may be uoiumenced at the expiration
of the 110 day's advertising for proposal and
sale of bonds, and continue until this sum
is expended. When the levy for 1880 is
iiinde next April, it is exiected the Coun
cil will apportion enough more to complete
the dredging, and then issue more bonds
payable in February 1881, By this plan
the work can be carried on to completion,

When the engineer submitted his esti
male about lo years ego, he figured on re
moving 45,000 cubic yards of earth, from
the L. S. & M. S. Ry. Co's lower dock to
the government cast pier. Since then the
engineer estimates 10.000 yards have been
washed out by tlie great freshet of Sep
temlwr. 1878, which to the Corration is
a benefit of from 1,000 to J,90.
It is now supposed that the cost per
cubic yard for reuiowig Mio eavUi to
uniform depth of SHCtecn ht, wfH be from
ten to twelve cents, which will make the
total expense of dredging from the Gov
ernment pier to the L. S. & U. S. Ry. Co's
lower dock, about f 3,500. .

A Tramp Detective.
Two tramps, giving as their names John
Smith and Thomas Ilnrk, had a trial be
fore Police Justice Richards last .Monday,
charged with stealing a suit of gentlemen's
underclothing from Mrs. Phillip Cragen's
clothes-line. They wcro each fined f 10
and costs and sent to jail In default of pay
ment. Mr. Phil. Cragen deserves a word of com-.
mendation for his skill in ferreting nut the
thieves and having them arrested. When
ho came homo on the evening named, his
wife informed him of her loss. He sus
pected it to be the work of tramps, and so
disguised himself and applied at the lock
up for lodgings. Among the occupants
thero were Smith and Burk who Cragen
spotted as the thieves, and then lay down
and pretended to sleep. About 12 o'clock
one of the tramps went out and returned
with the missing underclothing, which he
hung up by the stove to dry. Cragen was
a keen observer of what was going on,
and soon made an excuse to go out, and then
called Marshal Thorpe who arrested Smith
and Burk and placed them behind the
bars, and Cragen returned to his home with
the missing clothing.
Smith and Burk are recently from the
penitentiary where they served a two year's
term for burglarizing some of the stores in
