The Cable Railway Ordinance, Other Street Railway Matters Aid. GradThreatens the Press. Ail of the Aldr-rmeu uere present at the regular tension of tlie Common Council laat ni.dd. The first imiortant qaestion which cume up for discu-wioa was the removal of tho hay and wood market. Aid. DcGraaf claimed that the respectable resident in the vicinity of aiid market wi.-hed it removed; that it was a nuisance and that idnco the lo cation of the market ou Summit street that locality had Income famous for hou.-ea of prostitution and low ttaloous; that respect able ladies residing in that locality could not reach the central part of the city without beiny: insulted by the wood verniers and the hoodlums who thronged them. Alderman Nestor arooe and denominated the iople who desired the removal of the market as persons after his own heart, that is they vere cranks, while the veteran old Brenner believed it should be removed. Aid. DeGraaf played upon the idea tluit the present location of the market wa- city property. Aid. Grady moved that the matter be referred to the committee on streets lost. Aid. Grady then moved as an amendment that the hay and" wood market be removed to the east bide of Island. The original motion was then taken up "that the hay and woxl market be removed with in three days after the action of the Coun cil." The vote was a tie, and was lost by the May or voting nay. William Hartman petitioned to be ap pointed city auctioneer; referred to the Mayor. The Marshal asked thirty days further time to collect the Bowery street and James street grading rolls. Bowery street was stricken out, and the prayer granted. The Marshal was given thirty days further to collect the North Front street grading roll. The controllers report was accepted, and the City Attorney reported the contliction of a section of the city, ordinance with the charter. Ujon motion of Aid. Gilbert, the necessary correction was ordered. The City Attorney reported in favor of granting the pray er of the petitioners asking for the re moval of the street railway tracks on South Lafayette street and Fifth avenue. Aid. Gilbert moved that the eame be removed in four months, and that the stringers and rails be removed in thirty days. Aid. Moore moved as an amendment that the company be given ninety days instead of thirty. Car ried. The contract for building the Fulton street bridge was reported correct by the City At torney, and the same placed on tile. The Committee on Lamps recommended that naptha lamps be placed on different streets in the northern outskirts of the city. The same committee also reported adversely to the placing of an electric light on the cor ner of Fourth and Stocking streets. Aid. More of the Committee on Ordinances presented an ordinance granting xermission to the Valley City Cable Street Railway to construct a street railway on certain street-?, and asked that it be placed on its first reading. Upon the motion of Aid. Kil lean the said ordinance was placed on its third reading, and laid on the table one week. Carried. The same committee offered an ordinance in favor of the street railway company of Grand liapids building a street railway on Stocking street. An ordinance relative to stone side walks on certain streets, was accepted and placed upon the table for one week. An ordinance in amendment of an ordinace relative to the streets of Grand Rapids, was accepted and the usual motion placed upon its third reading. The intention of the ordinance was to govern the usage of salt in the street railway tracks directing that the salt le placed upon the rails only and pro viding a penalty for the violation of said ordinance. Aid. Whitney moved that the portion granting the street railway company permission to use salt be stricken out. Aid. Whitney moved an amendment opsing the granting of the company permission to use salt. Aid. Bren ner favored the prayer of the company. Aid. Grady moved as a substitute that the ordi nance be laid upon the table for one week, and printed; lost. Aid. Whitneys amend ment was then voted upon r.nd lost, Aid. Whitney alone voting "aye." Then followed numerous petty exceptions to the ordinance, in all tending to qualify the extent salt miu'ht bo used. The original motion to adopt the ordinance was then put by the Mayor, and carried. The special committee ou the matter of providing for the procuring of street signs, reported against any action being taken upon the matter at present. Aid. Brenner moved that the report lay on the table. Carried. The assessment roll for the grading and paving of Iagrave street from Maple street to Blaiely avenue was, upon motion of Aid. Pierce, taken from the table and ratified. The aessm -nt roll for the grading and paving of Jeffereoa avenue from the north line of Cherry street to Mnple street was taken from the table and ratified. Aid. Grady offered a resolution to the effect that the Street Railway Company be exempted fram calling the name of the cross streets until farther ordered by the Council. Aid. Gilbert offered a resolution amending the proposed revision of the charter, mak ing the members of the Board of Review and Equalization apiointive by the Mayor instead of elected by the people as hereto fore. A vote mon the resolution resulted in a tie. and the Mayor voted aye. Aid. Brenner offered a resolution embrac ing the thanks of th Council to Aid. Gilbert for th courteous manner in which he entcr tained the Conncil an the ir.th, and that the resolution be engrossed and presented to Mr. GilUrt. Aid. Creque offered a resolution wishing the compliment of the season to the Council, the sincerity of which he established by handing the Marshal a box of cigars with a request that they be distributed among the aldermen and members of the press. This incident had a tendency to put all the alder men in geod humor except Aids. Gilbert, Nestor and Grady, who took occaion to ay feme uncomplimentary things about the pre. Some one of the daily paper had said something in reference to one of the committee of the Conncil holding a secret session, to which Aid. Nestor took excep tion. Aid. GilteTt folktrexl, by insinuating that he ignore! newparer twaddle. E Alderman Grady waxed wroth and declared that a paper had misrepresented him and that he could whip a crre of reporters. Thi excitxl a ripple of merriment among the knights of the qill present, who treated the threat lightly, knowing that such conrtey had unconsciously milnenced Grady on acconnt of his long residence in the Firt Ward. Alderman DeGraaf seconded in sentiment the remarks of the senior aivierman of tne tim ay sarcamcauy inviting the reporters to cotus down in that j ward and have a combat with the "hood hnvO j The Council thn aliourced until Friday night, when the charter amendment will J 9 jv-in b ecusk'rcd. ' I HSAnTLCCD CUnCLAflQ Blind, Gag, Blindfold ' and Rob an Aged Farmer. On a small farm two miles and a half outheast of Graadville, in Wyoming town. hip, live Israel Smith, an old batcheior svnty-ix year of ae. "or the pat few ytar he has been carefully itowing away what money he could gain from the farm, against the day when he should become un able to perform manual labor. By saving the quarters, dimes and nickels he had ac cumulated nearly two hundred dol lars, which he kept jertttd about hi little log house. Yesterday morning three burglars, who probably knew well the old gentleman's habits and circumstances, went to his house between one and two o'clock, took a rail from the fence, battered in the door, and with a revolver placed cloe to Mr. Smith' head, formally took posses sion of the premises. They compelled Mr. Smith to arise from his bed, tightly Ijound him to a bed-iKst, blindfolded and gaged him. They then proceeded to search for his small fortune. The old gentleman' pockets were found to contain $.'M.&; they soon ap propriated this. In a dark corner they found an old leather valise that contained $100, mostly in silver of small denomina tions; they then emptied the bed-tick, bureau drawers and overturned everything in the room in their search. While this was going on inside a fourth party was keeping watch in the road in front of the house and holding a horse attached to a cutter, in which they had come and made good their escape. After feeling assured they had obtained all of the old man's wealth they left Mr. Smith fastened to the bed-post in his night clothes, and to make things still less cheerful left the door open when departing. The men entered the cutter and drove rap idly in the direction of Grandville. Mr. Smith, when he had fairly had time to con sider his situation and was alone, began des perate measures to loosen himself from his critical condition. He managed to free one hand from the cord that bound it, with his teeth, and the rest w as easily accomplished. He immediately went to the house of Mr. Collins, a neighbor, informed him of what had happened, and together they returned to the scene of the robbery. They found everything in a sad-looking condition, but, fortunately, discovered the bold thieves had missed one nugget of $50, that was deposited in the bed tick and was over-looked by them when turning out the straw. Mr. Collins followed the burglars by the sleigh track as far as Grandville, but the snow-storm rendered it impossible to track them further. He tele phoned to Sheriff Kinney, who sent Deputy Sheriffs Boyland and Pulver to the scene. The officers failed to get any clue yesterday, but will exercise their best skill to discover the men ahd bring them to justice.' Burns's Anniversary. The Burns Club met at their rooms last Saturday evening and made preparations for celebrating the anniversary of Robert Burns, Jan. 25, next. The committee on arrange ments was nppointed as follows: J. Muir, R. Sproul, C. Scott, T. Kininment, and J. F. Croll.
