Last Evening Orbit.
Another discussion of the Twelfth
street improvement ' proceeding!,
which apparently . will be con
tinued without a possible oppor
tunity for the public obstructionist
heretofore ueicrrmg progress on a
mere technicality, was opened last
evening in the appearance of Hon
W. H. Gest before tlio council to
have the assessment divided into
installments, before the continua
tion of the lew. when in fact this
could be done any time prior to the
commencement of the tax collection.
and, therefore, avert any chance to
question the legality of the proceed
ings in selling up " viaim mai
the amount of the first installment
should be stipulated, a point which
was sustained in the previous ordi
nance. However, Mr. Gest stated
that he was there in behalf of the
Twelfth street petitioners, who de
sired a division into installments' of
the tax levy. He asKed the council
to follow the customary plan in lev
ying assessments, which is not a
very severe hardship. The cour-e
now being pursued, he claimed,
would mean a hardship oniproperty
holders, who could not bear up the
payment of the assessment as a
whole. Mr. Gest only represented
those residing below Seventh avenue.
City Attorney Haas stated that the
idea of compiling an ordinance pro
viding for the payment of the im
pro vcniun t oa a cash basis was to avoid
a similar technicality which knocked
out former proceedings on aeeouot
of the amount of the first install
ment not being lived. Mr. Haas
recommended that the proceedings
be let go on now, as any, interferes e
would complicate matters and give
those indifferent to the improvement
an opportunity to cripple mat
ters, and, as the law allows, to let
the council pass an ordinance divid
ing the assessment into installments
of such numbers as it sees lit any
time before the collection of such is
commenced. The city attorney did
not agree with Mr. Gest that the
council could not pass an ordinance
providing for a division of the as
sessment after the court confirms
As the Twelfth street assessment
will not come np in the coart for
confirmation for ft few weeks. City
Attorney Haas suggested that a sup
plemental ordinance be drafted and
presented at 'a future meeting, when
the council could make such disposi
tion of it as it saw lit, although he
conceived no necessity of having the
assessment divided before confirma
tion of the proceedings, when the
same purpose could be accomplished
afterward, and possibly avoid further
It has always been the intention of
the council "to divide the Twelfth

The appeal of the W. C. T. U.
ladies was not very effective toward
me carrying 01 tneir point in the
matter of the appointment of a po
lice matron. Aid. Johnson, from the
police committee, reported adversely
on it last night, believing the de
tention of women .and children in
adequate to justify the employing of
an additional official.
Wheelmen are compelled to keen

Anything above a moderate speed

riding more than three abreast on
Cue highways. An ordinance similar
to this was passed recently in Gales
burg, and was met with lively oppo
sition by riders of that place. Sev
eral days ago Gas Kohler, of the
uiiesburg Mil, was arrested for rid
ing a wheel without a lantern. The
young man employed attorneys and
was prepared to light the case, when
the proceedings were dismissed by
the city attorney. Kohler did not
d.-nythat he had ridden without a

The decision in this case is of great
importance to local wheelmen, as it

The brothel of the notorious Mary

cleaned out by the police about 10
o'clock last night, and the occupants,

nell, three guests, whose appear
ances were fully up to the standard
of the surroundings, carted to head
quarters, amid blasphemous and hair
rising epithets, which rent the
air, were delivered with all the force
of Mary Ann's vocabulary. Thia
low resort has of late been a subject
for continued complaint from neigh
bors and others having a knowledge
of the daily immoral functions being
carried on there. Some time ago the
woman was given a 30-day sentence,
and one of her children takcu
from her and placed in more
deserving hands. Last night another
celebration of a hilarious and dis
gusting order was in progress, when
the police were attracted to the
scene. An empty growler, which bad
been rushed until all were paralysed
from its contents, lay on the table
beside a lamp without a globe; two
of the male visitors were stretched
out on the floor boiling under
heavy loads, while Mary Ann and still
another man were attempting to
play a game with the pasteboards,
and a cute little girl was witnessing
the actions of her mother.

Mary Ann was bareheaded and pret

she was brought before the 'squire.
She wouldn't plead guilty, and scored
the officers, especially Officer Miller,
on whom 6 ho discharged an addi

accusations against her "good"
character. She claimed she wasn't
drunk, but was simply having a so.
