called to order in the College
chapel, and preparations were made
for the regular organization. A
great portion of the morning was
consumed in the reading of the pres

Making Change With a Stranger.
Frank Gofton was poing down Race street
the other day at a 2:40 gait. At the corner
of Fifth street a small boy stopped him ind
asked him to give him two nickels for a
dime. The good natured Frank complied
with the request. It was all the change he
had with him at the time. When he got
down near Fourth, he Xelt thirsty and went
in and called for a seltzer. Frank tendered
the dime in payment, when the man threw
it back, saying it was spurious. Luckily
he was acquainted, and he was told to make
it right next time. Cincinnati Enquirer.
Anil Hat One Fire Joseph Kosentield's
Kara Horns The Loss.
An alarm turned in from box 14
shortly after 9 o'clock this morning,
brought out the lire department to
the residence of Joseph Kosenfield on
Third avenue and Eleventh street,
where the 2-story' frame barn in
the rear facing Eleventh street, was
tfonnd in a mass of flames. Two
streams were put on and in a short
time the fire was under control, but
not before the barn was damaged to,
perhaps, the amount of $500. On
this there is an insurance of $500 in
the Phcenix, of Hartford, in' Bu ford's
agency. It so happened that there
was no live stock in the barn at the
time of the lire, the buggies and
principal other articles down stairs
having been gotten out. There was,
however, some other goods, such as
storm doors, screens, etc., stored
there, which will amount to perhaps
$200, on which there was no insur
ance. Origin of the Fire.
Just how the barn caught is not
known. A cook stove was set up
down stairs where a girl was ironing.
She went into the house for some
thing, and on returning found the in
terior in llames. It probably caught
from a defective flue in the second
storv, as the whole upper part was
in a'blaze in no time. The barn be
longing to S. F. Cooke, just across the
alley from the Rosen lield structure,
also" caught, but was kept wet down
and the loss will not amount to 50,
w hich is also covered by insurance.
The department did good work, as
without it the lire would undoubted
ly have spread to adjoining buildings
which are thickly built there.
Two early morning alarms were re
sponded to", both of which were false.
The first one at J:M) this morning
was sent in bv a police otlicer making
his report from box ,rr at Seventh
avenue and Twenty-t bird street. The
second alarm was at ('c.-Jo and regis
tered in the waterworks from box IS
at Fifth street and Seventh avenue,
though it did not alarm the central
engine house at all. A rear spring
on the hook ami ladder was broken
on the way to the first down town

KtToits tcl"ateh t"p a Truce In the t'arpen-
tcr Matter Fall.
A prolonged struggle seems immi
nent in the matter of the disagree
ment between the Contracting Car
penters' association ami the Carpen
ters" Union ltl. Last evening at a
final conference of the joint commit
tee of the contractors ami journey
men carpenters, the latter offered to
submit the entire matter to arbitra
tion and to abide by the result what
ever it might be. anil pending the
outcome to return to work this morn
ing. The boss carpenters, however,
rejected the overture, and as a con
sequence the men arc still out.
The following statement of the sit
uation was sent out by the Carpen
ters" union last night:
Rock Isi.am. June 12. The com
mittees of conference of the Contrac
tors' Association and Union IGrt met
tonight, but failed to come to an
agreement. The committee of Union
liifi offered to leave the matter to ar
bitration by disinterested outside
parties but were refused, and as we
know of no other or fairer means of
adjustment we are compelled to let
the matter rest where it is.

GREAT INJUSTICE DONE.
The Uemoval or .Miss Kane From the
Schools The Flection.
The discussion of the removal,
without cause, of Miss Jennie A.
Kane from the corps of public school
teachers by the board of education
at its meeting Satuniav. has hoeii
attended by much feeling, the gener
al impression freely expressed on all
sides being that not only has a great
injustice been done the ladv in ques
tion, hut that when it is taken into
consideration the ground assumed bv
the members opposed to the
teacher's reappointment. it is con
sidered little less than an outrage.
When the A. P. A. organization
took it upon itself to run the schools
of Rock Island, it was asserted bv
many that once in control of the
schools discrimination against teach
ers of Roman Catholic faith would
follow, but others there wore who
disclaimed belief in the employment
of any such tactics. In the light of
recent events the anticipations look
ing to such a course cannot be re
garded as not without some founda
tion.' Coining Members.
Who will be the popular candidates
cannot as yet be stated. There is a
strongly prevailing feeling in favor
of Dr Bernhardi's reelection to the
board, while the names of Phil Mitch
ell, Morris RosenfTeM and John Cru
baugh are also mentioned, but no
ticket has as yet been decided upon.

Two months ago if a man wanted
a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate
City (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are, good. The objection to the lirst
is its cost, and to the second,' the
wearing out of the filtering discs.
Today, in the so-called "Rapid"
filter, patented April 4th, the good
points of both filters are combined.
I have the "Rapid," and will be glad
to show it.
