cotsists of l wo paid companies, one hoee
and on j hock sad ladder; the Franklins,
the last of the volunteers, having dis
banded May 1, leaving the paid system
the only soiree of protection the city now
has. The two paid companies are com
posed of 10 men including the chief.
Five nunc red feet of new cotton hose
has been pu -chased during the year, the
department now possessing 4.S00 feet of
hose in gool condition, and 1,500 feet of
inferior host .
The chief recommends the purchase of
necessary equipments for two new com
panies, one for the east and one for the
west ends or the city, respectively.
He also rt commends that the hook and
ladder truck be repaired and repainted,
and the purchase of two extension lad
ders, one 60 feet in length and one 40
feet: togetht r with two scaling ladders
and two sbut-ofi nozzles.
He suggeits a clothing allowance of
$8 25 per mmth to each member of the
department, aDd that the captain and
driver of each company receive $5 per
month addit ooal.

There are some at least of the chief's
recommer.d& tions that the council will be
apt to heed, as indeed it should without
delay. They are the ones looking to the
providing of two additional companies,
one for each end of the city , in districts
now whboul proper protection and to in
sure which tac council at its last meeting
took proper steps. The recommendation
as to putting the book and ladder truck
in proper shape and purchasing addi
tional ladders is also a good one. With
paid men to guard and take care of the
city's property there is some incentive to
keep it in tie best possible condition.

THJfi FISH LAWS.
Ab latereatlnc leelsla by the lilt.
boIb HaprBie Court.
The Illinois supreme court has just
made a decision which will prove of great
interest In this and" surrounding cities
bordering on the rivei; The Illinois State
Journal thus speaks ttt It: -U
The supreme court rendered an im
portant decision affecting the fish laws
of the state. James;H.-Brlggs, of San
gamon county, a year or two ago. was
arrested for seining fish In Sand Prairie
lake, a body of water situated 13 miles
east of Springfield, wholly on land
owned by one Jacob Miller. The lake
is but a short distance from the Sanga
mon river, and at times of high water is
connected with the river, although at the
ordinary stage of the water the lake is
not connected, and was not at the time
of the seining by Bridges. Bridges con
tended that, the lake being wholly on
land owned and controlled by a private
individualand he having obtained the per
mission of that individual to fish in the
laae, there had been no violation of the
law; and , that the law, if it did
apply in such a case, was unconstitu
tional. The circuit court find Bridges
$10, holding him guilty of a violation of
the law. The case was appealed to the
appellate court, and there the decision of
the circuit court was reversed. The su
preme court now reverses the decision of
the appellate court, holding that the state
In the enforcement of laws for the pro
tection of fish has jurisdiction over all
lakes or ponds which are connected part
of the time with a running stream wheth
er or not such lakes or ponds are located
whoily on land owned by private indi
viduals. It is held that the fish in such a
body of water, having gotten in during
the time the pond or lake was connected
with the stream, ate as much the proper
ty of the people as though they were in
the stream itself.
A. R. Carrington, the drummer boy of
Shiloh, as he is popularity known, gave
bis matinee entertainment at the First
Baptist church yesterday afternoon to a
large audience of children. It was a
series of stereoptican views representing
the life of Robinson Crusoe and also con
taining scenes from Uncle Tom's Cabin,
all of which were delightfully entertain
ing to the Young people as Mr. Carrings
ton accompanied it with an explanatory
lecture for the benefit of the youngsters.
In the evening a fair sized audience
gathered to hear his illustrated lecture on
the battle of Shiloh. After an introduc
tory address explanatory of the move
ments of the different armies up to the
time of the conflict, Mr. Carrineton
illustrated the scenes of carnage with his
views which are of the highest order, and
accompanied each scene with an enter
taining explanation. At the conclusion
of his lecture Mr. Carrington displayed his
still on the drum, and altogether the en
tertainment was first class in every re
spect. Totight Mr. Carrirgton presents his
"Miscellaneous Wanderings," and a large
audience will no doubt be present.

When a child is born the attending
physician gets $10 and the editor a curs

about the date or sex. When a marriage
is solemnized the minister gets $5 or $10,
the editor a nickel or two, perhaps for
some extra copies, provided the list of
presents is published. When a death
occurs the undertaker gets $100 and the
editor a few more nickels for extra cop
ies. This is a funny world. It seems to
be too much on one side, and the editor
is on the wrong side, Ex.
