Talk Ahnut Oracle.
The city council met in special
session Saturday afternoon, obedient
to Mayor Medill's call to consider the
subject of grades iu the Third ward.
The system in operation in that ward
has been on the ordinance books for
several years, but its enforcement
did not become necessary until the
adoption of the new sidewalk ordi
nance in that wartl, when a move
ment sprang up looking to the repeal
or modification of the grade. In con
sideration of this proposition, the
council met Saturday afternoon and
proceeded in a body over the Third
ward for the purpose of gaiuing an
idea of the existing conditions, and
returning to the council chamber
later in the afternoon reassembled.
City Engineer Darling submitted ele
vations in accordance with the wishes
of some of the aldermen for a modi
fied grade, and after a discussion, a
motion to adopt an ordinance look
ing to a new grade failed of the num
ber of votes necessary under the law
to make the change, and it was
thereupon declared defeated by the

The rotations or 850 Men at Stake.
The dullness in trade consequent
upon the stringency in ine money
market, and from which Kock Island
has escaped so far, showed its effect
here Saturday night, when a cut of
from 10 to eight hours a da- was
made by the Kock Island Lumber &
Manufacturing company, and almost
20 men were laid off temporarily. In
reply to a question from a reporter
this morning as to the cause oi the
reduction, Supt. Sears said: '-It is
due entirely to dull times. Stock
has accumulated so rapidly owing to
the decrease in demand, that we had
no other course before us but to make
a cut, and we have made it as mod
erate as possible."
Will there be anv turthcr changes
made?" queried the reporter, to
which Mr. Sears made answer.
"We cannot tell about that. We
hope whatever change we make
hereafter will be for the better, and
that the present move will be only
temporary in its effects.
At the Saw. Mills.
Robert R. Lynn, foreman of the
upper saw mills, when asked if there
was likelv to be any cuts made in
the mill, said: "That I can't tell.

authority to speak. My own im
pression is though that if anything is
done the null will be shut down en

will be pursued remains to be seen.

part of November, though we have
suspended in October, and again
have run as late as December.

all this year it will be before Sept.
F. C. Denkmann. of the Wever
hauscr & Denkmann mill, stated that
he Could not positively say whether
the mill would suspend earlier than
usual this year or not. "It all de.
pends upon circumstances," he said.
"and there is a prospect of our shut
ting down before Sept. 1."
The Number of Mfli Interested.
In the lower mill there are 300
men who would be thrown out of

The government weather clerk
never hit wider of the mark 1 ha n
when he predicted cooler weather
for yesterday, for it proved the hot
