Aid. A. G. Anderson, of the Seventh
ward, was the hero of the meeting
of the city council last evening, bring
ing the members in away from the
danger line with a motion to adjourn
just as the storm was ready to break.
There were at least a half dozen
questions., any one of which would
have produced an animated debate. ui
the sleeves of the aldermen, and as
one had been introduced, the others
would have followed, and the prospect
was for a session that would continue
The meeting of a week ago lasted
until a few minutes of the witching
hour, and the councilmen had agreed
among themselves to endeavor to wind
up the business with more rapidity.
- - Old (inllrrjr Crowd om Hand.
The bill of C. F. Gaetjer. commis
sioner of Longview park, was to have
been called up for reconsideration,
and there was promised, among other
interesting matter, a move for the re
opening of the waterworks investiga
tion. This had the effect of attracting
the old gallery crowd. G. Washington
McCaskrin had a seat well towards
the front, but there was no opening
for the Irrepressible. The Gaetjer bill
for $450. allowed at the former meet
ing is in the hands of the park com-i
mittee. Payment has been refused un
til the council designates from which
fund the amount is to be taken. This
is on advice of the city attorney, Mr.
Ludolph. A number of the aldermen
have had a change of hart, and do not
want to remain on record as voting
to allow the bill.
In rmtm Twrntr Mlnutr.
The meeting was in session just 20
minutes. When the various commit
tees had been called Mayor McCono-
chie asked if there was any alderman
who had anything to bring up. Thero
were knowing glances exchanged, but
not a word spoken. Aid. Anderson'.

Old ne DUpoaed Of.
An old score arising from an inci
dent that befell Ardie Dradford on
Eighteenth street and Fifth avenue
eight years ago was cleared off the
books In the acceptance of a tender of
$140 in full settlement of liability from
Dr. W. H. Ludewig. Bradford was
driving down Fifth avenue during the
construction of the Ltfdewig residence.
Julius Stroehle, who had the contract
for building the foundation, left a pile
of rank and sand in the avenue. Brad
ford drove Into this and was thrown
from his buggy. He brought suit In
the circuit court, making the city one
of the defendants. Service was not
secured on either Dr. Ludewig or Mr.
Stroehle. A verdict for $200 was re
turned against the city by a jury. The
city in turn brought suits against Dr.
Ludewig and Mr. Stroehle. The latter
has been away from the city a num
ber of years. Dr. Ludewig said that
while disclaiming any liability, he
would prefer settlement to trial, and
accordingly made the offer on condi
tidn that the suit be dismissed, which
was agreed to.

UNHURT BY FALL OF
52 FEET INTO A SHAFT
Eighty-Year-Old Citizen of Galena
Spends 44 Hours Underground
and is Cheerful.
James Rowe, a wealthy pioneer res
ident of Galena, has just broken the
black cat record for longevity under
difficulties and dangers.
Just 44 hours after Mr. Rowe had
fallen 52 feet to the bottom of a de
serted zinc mine shaft, a searching
party brought the white haired oc
togenarian to the surface, uninjured.
Five inchesof snow in the meantime
had covered the hills, and Mr. Rowe,
on emerging from the shaft, began
kicking around in it, with the impatient
, "Where in blazes is my cap?"
James Rowe is a retired farmer, a
widower, with $100fv00, and' he will be
80 years old nexi-pring. , Homakes
his home with a married daughter in
Galena, He finds recreation . in long
walks over the orebound hills.
Friday afternoon Mr. Rome left
home for one of these walks. He fail
ed to return that night,1 and Saturday
morning a searching party started out.
The searchers numbered scores by
Sunday morning, and It was not till 10
o'clock that Jacob Schuester. leading
a group of searchers, bethought him
to step over the mouth of a deserted
shaft, a mile northwest of town, and
call down the vertical welL .
His answer was a husky shout from
the depths, and in a few moments a
rope and windlass from a nearby shaft
were moved over and Schuester was
lowered to the bottom, to find one of
the cheerfuiest of prisoners sitting up
right on a stone.
