The city council hist evening gave the
ISlectric Railway company a hearing on
the street air tracks paving question but
did not rescind former action. The Chis
holm creek question was discussed.
Council was called to order at 8:15, all
members present but McKee. The call
was read and the mayor announced that
he had not signed the contract with ZVIul
vane & Kepley to pave street owiuc to re
quest of the railway company to be heard
on the question. He observed that Mr.
Davidson, president of the company, was
present and called on him.
Mr. Davidson said the matter came up
last Monday ni?ht and he had not sup
posed the contract would be awarded. He
had hoped to have the contract le&cinded
Jle wanted Jasperite. The heavy motors
on ties on the ground would call for much
track rep-airing and an expense and incon
venience. With jasperite could put in a
concrete base and make a solid foundation
find Ips exnense for repairs. On other
streets the wishes of a majority property
and in this instance the railway company
pays for one thousand 3'ards of paving and
the property owners pay for seven thous
"wTe. Stanley, attorney for the com
pany, said he could not add to what had
been said. No doubt, the street railway
company would be at less expense by using
jasperite. Tho heavy motors called for
track more substantial than on the ground.
The trucks under the car weigh 5,000
pounds this exclusive of the car. This
would substanti ite the proposition that a
solid track is necessary. It had not been
thought the contract would be let when it
was or the claim h of the company would
have been presented. He had been told
tbat.-ome of the councilmen would not
change, no ms tter what their argument,
but he hoped that was not true.
Caswell said some time ago he offered an
amendment to amend the iranchic to
allow jasperite and it had failed, owing to
inactivity of the street car company.
Mr. Fitch, of the company, explained
thatjie had understood that tho council
was going to allow Jasperite bids without
any amendment of the franchise as at the
time for outside reasons they did not want
the franchise changed.
On inquiry 31r. Davidson said the Jas
peritc would cost about as much as the
Carson had something to say about
sleeping on rights and about the bad plan
of the council to make changes. He did
not refer to cbanging once before from
stone for paving and several other changes
for paving and tl tree chances for citv build
ing stone and ana aKo tailed to refer to a
lino of mercurial council proceedings. Ho
assured the compa ny that they had had
plenty of time and they had neglected
Mr. Stanley inquired if Mr. Car
son ever knew of a paving
contract being let without consulting the
parties who pay for it.
Carson replied that he had observed that
Market street hr.d been paved against the
wishes of the people.
Mr. Davidson said of the three bids sub
mitted by the same company it was
strange the highest bid had been accepted.
Mr. Stanley said he believed that the
property owners wanted jasperite and if
the council wanted to be fair could it not
allow a chance to give the people an oppor
tunity to express an opinion. 3 le had been
told that tbe company was fixed but if
the council wanted to bo fair give a chance
to find out.
Buckridge said Mr. Davidson had
told him thero was a job
in it and Mr. Davidson replied
that he was mistaken as he did not so re
mark. Duckridge continued to say that
lie was'righuandtheio was uomistake about
it. Jle continued by suggesting iron ties
and in this may make a bolid road. He did
not want to favor the company cr to go
back on the vote ho had taken.
Johnson took up the "job cue" and
seemed very much excited. He said Mul
vane & Ivepley nor any one else had never
given him a five cent piece.
Stanley said some of the councilmen had
been knocking down a straw man, no one
had charged boodle.
Johnson referred to theBuckrikge state
ment and Davidson .said he had not told
Uuckridge anything as represented by
Martin inquired about the sewer com
mittee, and Bu"keridge reported an effort
to get the packing houses in to the city
and a proposition made but the attorney
for the packing houses -were afraid the con
tract could not. be made binding. People
had come to him with tears in their eye.,
families sick and nothing had been done,
lie said that the packing houses would be
stopped by noon today unless some agree
ment was reached.
Mr. Stanley said lie would make an effort
to get a meeting of the packing house
leople today and thought an agreement
could be reached.
It was announced that tho water would
1 turned in Chisholm creek today which
would bring some relief.
The mayor announced that Colonel
Lewis did not want to arbitrate unless he
was allowed to reject the decision tho
Nimo as tho city had accepted tho proposi
tion, and the party Imckiug out to pay the
cost for aribitration.
Carson thought the city should not be
IhmhuI by the arbitration.
Martin suggested that arbitrators would
investigate everything and make a fair
CHrson was afraid arbitration would
rost tho city too much. Buckridge was
hIso of the opinion that arbitration would
not be safe for the city. He wanted to go
the courts and abide by the result there.
Johnson moved to defer action on ap
pointing arbitrators until Monday night,
with Buckridge a second.
Buckridge later amended that the city
arbitrate and allow Lewis an opportunity
to reject verdict of arbitration and the
party rejecting pay cots. Mossbacher
proved a second to tet the council.
Carson again sprung the nuisance racket
and board of health business.
The motion prevailed with Carson and
Caswell in the negative.
The mayor announced as committee re
naming street Carson.Buckridge.Browu,
Coffin, Williams, Martin.

After the distribution of the diplomas
Prof. Xaylor introduced Rev Hewitt who
announced that the Rev. David Wintei3
wished to make a present to the best rhe
torical and the best elocutionary effort on
the part of the graduates. The matter
had been referred to a secret committee
who had reported that the rhetoric prize
had been won by Miss Alice Rachel Moss
man, and with a few fitting remarks pre
sented her with a copy of the complete
works of Washington Irving. In a few
well chosen words the complete works of
Shakespeare were presented to Miss Ann.i
Letitia Wilson as the prize in elocution.
The competition was clo-e and the com
mittee was pretty evenly divided on several.
Prof. Naylor then made a few remarks
to his graduates and the exercises were
concluded by the benediction pronounced
by the Rev. Winters.
Last evening at Garfield the junior class
gave an interesting and entertaining pro
gram. The large society hall was well

performer of the evening, delivered an
able treatise upon "The Successful Man."
Life is a mystery which is hard to solve.
The youth of today reflect upon tho un
realties of life of what the future has in
store for them. But life is real and one
must be up and at work. The man who
makes a success of life must cnoose some
particular work. If he has an inclination
for some one profession he should select
that, but if ho has no choice he should still
educate himself for some life work. Life
does not end with death. "Then let us so
live that when the summons comes to join
the innumerable caravan which moves to
that mysterious realm, we may approach
the grave like one who wraps the drapery
of his couch about him and lies down to

by Mr. Sherman Ploughe. The title of
the oration was: "Where are We and

in a state of political and social insurrection.
Carlyle has truly said America has yet its
battle to fight. The breach between aris

those who love justice and morality. The
time has arrived when a new generation
should take the reins of government. The
old parties are dead; a new one must bo
formed. Here the gentlemen digressed
from the subject and spoke at some length
upon the liquor traffic.
Mr. Toose, on behalf of the law class,

A I'liiloxilhic Italian.
I happened to witness a street scene tho
other day which I endeavored to lay to
heart as a lesson in patience. An old Ital
ian rag picker was slowly making his way
along the sidewalk with a huge bundle on
his back a bundle so big in fact that
scarcely anything was visible beneath it
except a pair of snuff colored, shabby
trousers, moving forward with a simulta
neous lateral motion. Just as the old man
lunged around a corner a neavy wagon
came up, and the hub of one wheel struck
the bundle with such force that the bearer
was thrown violently to the ground. Ho
got up, with irome assistance, in a dazed
manner, the blood streaming down his
face from a cut in his forehand.
But now comes tho strange part of tho
affair. Instead of swearing and cursing,
or at least bemoaning his fate, the old fel
low smiled a gentle, well bred smile, quiet
ly wiped 'his face, reshouldered his lotd,
being helped by the teamster, who was
duly apologetic, and went on his way with
tho philosophic air of a man who had sim
ply encountered one of those inevitable an
no3ances which human life entails. Would
any Anglo-Saxon person have behaved so
well under similar circumstances? Boston

Sjnonjius for Money.
The huge nuinborof synonyms for money
illustrates remarkably well "the variety of
sources from which our slan words aro re
cruited and the remarkable appositeness of
some of them. We may talk of our money
in scores of ways; among which are, for in

"tho wherewithal;' "beans," "blunt,"
"tin"' or "brass;" "chips," "dibs" or

"stamp," "feathers," or "palm oil"
