Company with George Imnoff, a com pun-

brother and sister were riding down on a
sled together, and having gotten a good
start ran out further than usual and
plunged into the large air hole ut the f not
of the street. They were out of s'tithl in

SUED AT DUBUQUE.

The Matter of Congressional
SECEETAEY NELSON'S SCHEME.
Atkinson & Oloft Made Defendants to
Proceedings Growing Out f raving
An attachment suit has been entered
against Atkinson & Oloff. of this city, at
Dubuque, by creditors of that city. The
firm has a paving contract at Dubuque,
a portion of which has been finished,
nod the claim is mude that tbey were
upj isily treated by the city in payment
for the sime. The contract provided
that 75 per cent should be paid them
as operili-ns progressed in monthly
estimates for all completed work, 20
per c-nt when the contract was fin
ished, and the remaining 5 per cent
retained until ene year after tbe com
pletion of the contract as security
against imperfect work or materials.
Ia consequence of the continuous rains
during the earlier part of last summer,
the improvement was so delayed that
when completed from Seventeenth to
Jones street, the weather had become
so cold that it was neither for the inter
est of the city, nor for the contractors to
continue the work last fall, and it was
naturally aggreed that it ghoald be sus
pended until next spring. The contrac
tors were paid tbe 75 per cent on their
C ntract from Seventeenth to Jones, as
stipulated. They asked the council,
h jwever, to pay them 25 per cent more
to enable them to settle up with Dubuque
parties for labor and material furnished.
This was bitterly opposed by a portion
of the council, aud was defeated by the
casting vote ot the mayor.
Now comes an alderman, and in an in
terview in the Dubuque Telegraph, says
that no good has been accomplished by
this refusal, and that the city acted un
justly in refusing to pay the contractors
until spring, as a result of which the Du
buque creditors had to be stood off. He
Bays the work was well done, and al
though according to the literal terms of
the contract the city was not bound to
make the 20 per cent payment.he alleges
that it would have been a graceful act
had the city dne so.

"The Power of the Press." to be pre
sented at the Bartis at Davenport to
night, illustrates a peculiar part of New
York life which is not unnatural. Tbe
central figure is a man of popular habits,
who in a drunken condition, is accused
and sentenced to prison for another
man's crime. The prison garb clings to
him on his release, and he ia shunned by
his friends. With a resolution to clear
himself he secures the aid of tbe press
and briags tbe guilty to justice. Oa
the stage where the tale is unfolded
with the assistance of a number of
tableaux, it moves clearly and with
briskness. It ia said t be set with
much more than commonly fine scen
ery, acd is clothed with accuracy and
fine taste. Fr this reason the eye is
abundantly fed, and the pictorial ef
fect is wholly gratifying. It is said
that there is not a common place piece
of painting in the whole collection,
while some of the sets are striking ex
amples of the painter's and mechanic's
art. In "The Power of the Press" Mr.
Pitou feela that he has a play which
contains every element of popularity.
"Tbe Two Sisters" play and company,
may be classed as the acme of realism.
Tee entertaining things outside of the
drama, the singing by an excellent quar
tette, the whistling bootblack, tbe chorus
by the company, and the colored minstrel
and tbe funny episodes following each
other with such astonishing rapidity. In
deed it will be very strange if the play
does not become immensely popular at
once. Cleveland Leader.
The "Two Sisters" are to be seen at
the Burtis at Davenport tomorrow even
ing. Few to freed.
It is a remarkable fct that the cuubir
of prisoners in tbe county jails over the
stata outside ot Cook county has fallen
ifl nearly one-half in the Kst yea. In
other words theie are only about one
hilf the number of criminals doicg time
outside Chicago as there were last year.
This fact is evidenced by tbe difference
in ou-own county jail, where the num
ber on Feb. 9 last year was 21 and today
there are only 11. Sheriff Gordon's books
show that in January U2 there were 50
prisoners confined in the j nil and last
month, tbe rjii ruber averaged but 24. in
Cook county tue ratio is higher, which is
no doubt due to the itifljx of the tough
element that will hold away in Chicago
during the World's fair.
