until 1 o'clock this afternoon.

Louis Otlweiler met at the coroner's

were examined and their testimony simp
ly pertained to the discovery of the body
which was found after three barrels had
been mptied and which was first de
tected by the rags and cloth in which it
was wrapped. Tburman a suspicions
having been aroused as to the object,
Carter took a small stick and removed a
portir n of the cloth and revealed the
child's face. Blood was oozing from the
nose. The men put the body back in the
barrel and sent it to the dump boat, and
Scave nger Greene being admonished of

Mtifltodons were to the "dinky" minstrels
of those days. There were unheavals of
applause and hurricanes of laughter. It
wu a red letter day in minstrelsy. It
whs a long bill, but none too long for the
enthusiastic audience. These great burnt
cork comedians supplied for fun Billy
hmerson, Iiughey Dougherty, John

Tnere was enough vocal and instrumental
music to supply two grand concerts.

An Epidemic at Anarnntana.

to be of the nature of an epidemic at Au

f t that institution are suffering with the
rontagion. Mr, August Eckman, the

POPULARITY OF PAVING.
A Peoria Faprr Haa Hone Hound Ior
trine to Advance on the Advantage
of Improved Streets.
The Peoria Journal is making a vigos
rous campaign in the interests of paved
streets in that city and is attempting to
instill into the minds of the aldermen
the ideas which have induced the
present Rock Island council to go ahead
fearlessly and firmly for the city's ad
vancement, a work that it is to be boped
will be taken up and carried on with
equal enthusiasm and pride by the incom
ing municipal body. The Journal says
on the subject:
The matter of paving the streets is exs
ceedingly popular among all classes of
people. The property owners want to
see the streets paved, and they wish to
have it done on so extensive a plan as to
be general, and thus do away with the
desultory, hit or miss system that is now
in vogue. So far es the legal aspect of
the case is concerned the best attorneys
say that the city council has the right to
pave the streets and assess the benefits
against the propeity. And they oan
make the payments either in one year or
in five, and that in case anything is wrong
they ctn amend the matter after the judg
ment against the property has been main
tained. This certainly gives the council
ample power. The policy is now pursued
In Chicago and R has been of the utmost
benefit to that city. There is no doubt
that our city council has a right to do
this here and if the aldermen will simply
po ahead we can soon have a munici
pality that we shall be proud of. The
niHtter of petting new manufac
tories in a town is ot small moment
compared with making the city a
pleasant place to live in and giving
the people a chance to avail them
selves of all the modern improvements.
People will not live in a place where the
streets are muddy, the crossings are un
clean, the water is defective and there are
no sewers. A large part of our future
prosperity must come from the fact that
we shall make this city agreeable to peo
pie of means who wish to come here to
avail themselves of the advantages that a
proeressive city gives.
Dwelling on this point has built up
Denver until now it is a city of 140. OiK)
inhabitants without any factories at all.
We can do the same in a degree for Peo
rla. The factories are bound to come,
for we possess unequalled facilities, hut
they will come all the quicker if we make
a city here that strangers find is pleasant
and progressive. If we pave each street
with brick and make the drives around
town such as they ought to he, it will at
tract the attention of people of means
and they will settle here. Other tbines
then will come of their own accord. We
now have a prospect of obtaining good
water in the future. The next crying
uecessity is well paved streets and good
sewers. All that the board of aldermen
need now is a little courage.
