He was one of the promoters of the

what he had done to that end was
honored with lieing selected its first

the culmination of a correspondence
with the young man. A Warsaw
man bought a pair of overalls and
found in them the name of the sew
ing girl who made them. He very
properly wrote her a letter, with all
the effusiveness necessary in such
cases and in due time received a re
ply. But the response was not what
he expected. It was this: "I am a
working girl, it is true, but I make a
good living and do not care to sup
port a husband, as I would probably
have to do if 1 married some silly
noodle who gets mashed on a girl he
never saw. Permit me to sav fur

got into that pair of overalls, and
that when I do marry, if over, it will

The L'nioii seeks to defend Chief
Miller's political energies by whining
something about the Ai:;rs having
on certain occasions praised "Mar
shal Miller's zeal. If the Union will
stop to reflect it will satisfy itself
that it is the same "Marshal Miller's
zeal" particularly "about election
time" to which the A.uoi'S has been
referring so frequently of late, and
which "zeal" by the way he has in
stilled into liirl force. That zeal
which according to Miller's own con
fession in behalf of McConochie
against Sehrocilor, is one of the most
odious features of the McConochie
manipulation of things. Oh, yes.
Miller and his underlings have been
abundantly zealous in the past few
weeks, but what the public fails to
comprehend is why the most "zeal"
is lieing exerted on the part of the

Intimation was made in Thk
Ahgi'8 last week that the Kock Isl
and road had under consideration the
remodeling or rebuilding of its round
house in this city. The report is
Known to have been authentic from
the fact that Master Mechanic Stock
has received the plans for the
changes that will be made which in
clude an almost entire remodeling of
the present structure. The building
which is circular in shape will bo
simply cut in halves and the north
half swung around and joined on the
east of the present south half and made
to conform to the latter. As pre
viously stated all the new houses are
constructed on the double plan which
this one will be when finished. Kach
wing will have 26 stalls, or 52 in all,
an increase over the present capacity.
The space on the riverside made va
cant by the removal of the house
will bo utilized for tracks, which are
badly needed for switching room.

that there is no special grievance or

contrary the men are satisfied with

Nevertheless there was a conference
between the committee and promi

the results of their deliberat ions have
been kept a secret, they will probably
