Not a bid was offered to the eitv
eonncil last evening for the pavintr
work content dated on Seventeenth,
Nineteenth and Twenty-third streets.
The eon tractors attribute their fail
ure to bid to the condition of the
money markt t and dull times. They
claim to ha a great amount of pa
per now on hand for work .!,,ne in
the past and which is not bearing
anything. 'J he consequence is the.
contractors did n.t care to assume
any further obligations until times
ease up r little. It looks very much
though, as if the contractors had had
their beads t gether, ami that if the
city expectet: to do any more paving
this year it v ill be ohfiged to look to
a wider lield for bidders. The work
proposed on Seventeenth and Nine
teenth betwe -n Third and Fourth ave
nues is particularly important, and
public safety demands that something
le done, wli le there is a block oil
Twenty-third that is nearly as bad.
Should there come a heavy rain these
streets wooM be practically impassa
ble for the listanee named, to sav
nothing of the damage to abutting
property. As a matter of course the
city can get along without the im
provement d -sired, but it will be nec
essary to do a tremendous amount of
tilling if the streets are no paved,
and the wotk hould be done well
while it is b.-ing done, if posih!o.
Lighting -he City.
The counc 1 determined to continue
to adhere to the low light svstem in
i 1 1 u luiiiul i tip the city in future con
tracts, and that from 10i) to 140
lights are to be provided for. It is
very evident that the people, as :i
rule, prefer the low light to the tow
er light, an 1 the oniy possible ue
that the mis ghtly towers which have
been left standing over the eitv since
theabolitioi of the ysTcni could In

the low lights and hi the suburbs.

him in several parts of the body, lie

Milan, and later removed to his
home at Sears, where he is resting
comfortably today, and his injury,
while exceedingly painful, will not,
it is gratifying to know, prove per

miles southw est of Milan, w as kicked
by a vicious horse yesterday after
noon, and two ribs were fractured.

shot down on the street at any time.
Now get out. and don't come back

Xiii-ely Politics Prohuhly.
The letter is not signed, and the
writing is in a disguised baud. It
was posted at Kansas City on Julv
l".t. The friends of Mr. Tavlor are
somewhat exercised over the myster
ious letter, and are sure that it was
sent by some of his political oppo
nents. They claim they have a clue
that will lead to the arrest of the
guilty person, but will not give hjs
nanu' to the public.
It looks as i f somebody were trying
to hoodoo the late minister to Libe

old position. He doesn't look as if
he could run but he does look like a

Progress in l ea! her Presi-in..; in America.
Ruck Isi.axp, Aug. S. Kditor A li
nes: Tanning and dressing skins
has become a distinct and separate
feature of the glove industry, and
but few glove manufacturers "dress
their own leather. Such remarka
ble progress has been made in the
manufacture of sheep and lamb skins
that the great majority of the gloves
made from these skins 'tire termed
kid gloves.'1 In fact, the term
domestic or imported kid"' is taken
literally by the trade as meaning
sheep or lamb skin treate.l w ith the
kid dressing. .Until recently the
imported '-kid skins" have been con
sidered superior to those manufac
tured in this country, as they come
largely from Germany, where a
greater amount of time'is consumed
in dressing and tanning, but within
the past few years rapid strides have
been made by the United States man
ufacturers in dressing -'kid leather"
from sheep and lamb skins,
and many experts now claim
that the leather made here is in
every respect equal to that from
abroad. One obstacle in the way has
been the fact that foreign manufac
turers have controlled the market
on the sheep skins, ami have thus
drawn to Kngland, Germany and
France the choicest skins in the
world. Competition and an in
creased local demand here, however,
created a new market for these skins,
and American manufacturers are
rapidly being placed on an equal
footing with those in Europe.
