THE NEW BUILDING.
Peetitions were read from Messrs. E.
P. Reynolds. S. W. McMaster, John
Warner, Jamea Mirfield, W. P. Quayle
and aome two hundred other residents of
the Fifth and Sixth wards, asking the
board to replace Building No. 5 by a
safer building as well as one more ade
quate to supply the needs of that com
munity. The reports of the expert build
ers alluded to in last night's A no us were
also submitted, showing that they had
carefully examined this building and pro
nouncing it unsafe and unfit for repair.
Mr. J. D. Taylor in his report says: "The
building is unsafe as it is and I do not
think it proper or wise to do any work on
said building." Mr. S. J. Collins says:
"It is in a very unsafe condition, the
mortar in the foundations and brick walls
being very poor, more or less out of
plumb and badly cracked. I consider the
building unsafe and not worth repair
ing." Mr. W. A. Guthrie says: "It
is in a very unsafe condition. There
is a possibility that it might stand
for two or three years under favor
able circumstances but it is liable to
fall down at any time, the foundation
and biick walls being in a very bad con
dition." Mr. C. J. Larkin says: "I find
that the walls are in an unsafe condition,
being out of plumb and in several places
buckled so as to throw the strain on two
iron rods which may at any time pull
through from the poor quality of the
mortar in the brick work. The said
bricks being loose in many places, the
building is badly cracked and it would
be unwise to make and repairs on it."
In the face of these facts the board
thought its duty was to erect a new
building on the site of the present
No. 5 in that district. A resolution
was therefore adopted discontinuing the
school house and inviting architects to
submit plana at an adjourned meeting on
Friday evening for a new eight-room
building to be erected on the same lot
with Ruttan beating and ventilating ap
paratus, the cost to be about $10,000.
It is Intended to erect this building dur
ing vacation and have it ready for use on
the opening of the fall term of the schools
Mr. B. H. Kimball was authorized to
take the school census, and bis compen
aatioa fixed for such task' at $100. .
The superintendent reported the re
ceipts of the High school commence
ment exercises as $52,48, which was
turned into the school fund.
Bills were allowed as follows, after
which the board adjourned until Friday
Don & Briggs, $10.70; John F Din-
din ger. $5.50; W H Hatch, $5.15; Rock
Island Gas Company, 80 cents; David
Don, $6 80; McCabe Bros., $4 07; Henry

SUNDAY POSTAL SERVICE.
An Open Letter to PoaTaHter-4ea-eral
Wananaker from the Illinois
Moved by the letters of inquiry re
cently sent out by Postmaster General
Wanamaker in his endeavors to learn of
the extent of Sunday business in the
postal service, the Illinois Sabbath as
sociation has addressed an open letter to
the head of the postal department, in
which is said:
In deciding upon further reforms we
ask that you will consider, in addition to
the reports that you will receive from
postmasters, the general approval that
has been manifested by good citizens of
all sections of what you have already
done in this line, and especially the ex
pressions in favor of complete Sunday
rest in the postal service that have of
ficially been made by the Brotherhood of
Locomotive -Engineers, the Knights of
Labor, the cardinals of the Catholic
church, the general assemblies of the
various Presbyterian denominations, the
Lutheran and Baptist conventions, and
by ministers' meetings and churches of
other denominations, besides millions of
citizens in mass meetings all over the
We submit to your consideration the
following points as some of those on
which orders or recommendations from
you ought to bring the postal service
more fully into harmony with the proper
uses or the civil Sabbath as a day on
which the government should protect its
citizens against interruptions of their
rest ana worship:
1. No postofflce to be opened at the
usual hours of worsbip.
2. No postal employes required to be
on duty at hours that would take from
them the opportunity to attend church.
3 . Stamp clerks to be entirely free
irom Sunday work.
4 Mail bearing special delivery stamp
to be uniformly held in the office as other
mail, unless personally called for.
5. No mail matter except letters to
oe stamped or sorted on the Sabbath.
6. Any postofflce to be wholly closed
on the Sabbath where a majority of the
people of legal age petition for such
We trust you may be able to find other
ways in which to reduce the Sunday
work of postal employes, and that you
win co-operate with the national move
ment to secure a law by which this Sun
day woik shall be wholly and permanent
Thank to Sir. Holme.

An Indolent Organ.
When the liver is indolent, as it must
necessarily be when it fails to secrete the
bile in sufficient quantities to meet the
requirements of digestion and evacuation,
it should be set at work with Uosietter's
Stomach Bitters. The healthful stimu
lus to activity imparted by this incom
parable alterative, speedily evinces itself
in a departure of the uncomfortable sen
sations in the right side; the nausea, fur
upon the tongue, indigestion, and sick
headache consequent upon inactivity of
the liver and the diversion of the bile
from its proper channel. Irregularity of
the bowels is always and painlessly re
formed by the corrective indicated, which
is infinitely to be preferred, both because
it is safe and more efficacious, to blue
pills, calomel and drenching purgatives
of every class. It cures and prevents
fever and aeue and rheumatism.
