At last night's meeting of the city
council considerable lmsiness of im

to the regular m nthly routine.
The report of the city treasurer
was referred back for correction on
account of a slight error.

Fire Breaks Oat in No. 7 .school Building
The alarm of fire turned in from
box 71 at about 7.30 this morning
called the department to Thirty
eighth street and Seventh avenue
where fire had . been discovered in
the basement of School Building Xo.
7; but before the department arrived
a garden hose was brought into play
and the tire soon subdued with small
loss. The firemen made their usual
good time, but the need of a com
pany in the east end in the event of
a more extensive fire was again fully
shown. The lire had started in some coal
no one knowing just when it started,
but most likely it originated during
the night. The only cause that can
be given is the excessive heat at
tached to the place where the coal
was, and which caused combustion.
There were 1,824 bushels of coal
in the cellar, ami it is a source of re
joicing to know that the discovery
was made in time to avert the de
struction, or more serious damage of
one of the handsomest school build
ings in the state.
Yesterday afternoon George Wein
berger stepped on a match at his
home, 71.S Fourth street, and at the
time paid no attention to it, but later
on the odor of burnin'r cloth w asNle
tected, and upon investigation it was
found that his sister's clothes which
were hanging in a closet were all
ablaze. They were taken from the
wall, and what might have been a
serious blaze was narrowly averted
by stamping, water, etc.
The Stale School lor the Deaf.
Probably no other state institution
or school of learning is calculated to
interest one or more than the School
for Deaf Children, located at Jack
sonville. Illinois. The school wears
the prominent distinction of being
the largest of its kind in the world,
there being over 5'J'i deaf children
between the aires of !S anil i'l attend
ing the school, and vet, so Sunerin-
that Davis & Co., w ho have the pres. I teudent Walker recently informed

lVesides. the Merchants' company is
better r.jiiiiped to undertake
the contract :-gain than anv of the
competitors, having nut only the
w ires already in place, but the power
plant in good shape. The company
lias given satisfaction su far, the
only coup!ai it a a rule beinx in not

eight years, and that though this
may seem a tender age, provision is
made for the best of care of the little
