Action on the remonstrance of the E

The clerk was about to read the pro

McLaughlin interrupted him and moved
that the reading be dispensed with lor the
present. The motion was unanimously
WASH-BACKS AND AWKXNOS.
A proposed ordinance specifying the
manner in which wash-racks must be
constructed aud drained was read and
laid over under the rules.
Trustee McLanghlin introduced a sub
stitute for ail o! the awning ordinances
submitted in the last few weeks. It
specified that the covering ofthe awnings
must be ol* wood, metal or canvas, and
that tbey must not extend farther out
thau the outer edge of the sidewalk.
They must be supported by iron supports
attache.i to the building. It also provides
that the awnings should be built under
the direction of the Sanitary and Building
Inspector. It* the awning is built of
woi>d the outer edge must be thirteen
above the sidewalk, aud if made of
canvas it must be seven and one-half feet
above the sidewalk. The fringe onthe
canvas awnings must not be wider than

Mr. McLaughlin saiel the Mayor was

Was th(> only reason why ho did not want
that officer to superintend the construc

Henry here asked the board If it
led to take action on the proposed

Trustee McLaughlin surprised the
friends ofthe enterprise by stating that
he n.ran; by his form.-r motion that the
ordinance should not be 1 until
nextweek. Jl he did not say so, he
meant it that way.
"Well," replied Mr. Henry, "if you're
going to lay it over again, I would be
much obliged to you if you could
just put ii off two weeks, instead of one.
I can't be running ap hero every week."
Action was deferred until one week

THE ANNUAL INFLUX
Thioves aro Flocking in Again and are
The approach of the fair has brought
the usual influx of petty thieves, pick
pockets and burglars.
Numerous thefts have already been re
ported to the police.
J. W. Richmond reported at the police
station yesterday that ho had lost a set of
harness, which was stolen from his barn
in the rear of his residence during Sun
day night. The harness was hanging- up
along with other sets, but the thief picked
out the I test there was in the place.
Another report camo in yesterday to
the effect that the henhouse of John
Ryan, at 1022 Q street, was despoiled of
twenty fowls. Several other henroosts
in that neighborhood were also visited
and a large number of chickens stolen.
It has also been learned that a burglar
tried to force an entrance to the house of
Thomas 11. Longton, who lives at 1409
Ninth street. Mr. Longton was awakened
by the noise and tho burglar got away.
He had succeeded in raising the sash of
one ofthe front windows.
Early yesterday morning as ("eorge
Lemke was going through the alley be
tween O and P, Eighteenth and Nine
teenth streets, he noticed a very good
looking coat and vest lying upon the
ground, and a lit tie beyond a small black
grip. He recognized the property as
belonging to J. F. Calderwood, the
well-known railroad conductor, whose
house was a few steps distant, at 1513
Eighteenth street, lie picked up the
garments and the grip ana went around
to the residence. The thief had romaged
the honse through and through, had
I through all tho sleeping apart
ments, but failed to find where the money
was hidden. Mr. Calderwood's watch
and chain were the only things of ralue
that were taken. There*is no cluo to the

ALMOST A MURDER.
A Midnight Marauder Shoots at a
110 Sneaks Into a "Lodging-House, and
Being Ejcctod, Tries to Kill
A few nights ago a lady who keeps a
lodging-house on X street, and which
has an entrance on the alley between
Third and Fourth, stumbled over a man
lying flat in the rear hallway of hor
house. She ordered him out, and sup
posed she had seen the last of him.
About 2 o'clock on Saturday morning,
however, she found the same fellow ly
ing in tho same place—he having gained
entrance each time from the alle\ —and
again ordered him out. This time ho re
fused to be evicted.
The lady then went and got a large
feather duster, and with the handle she
gavo tho intruder a sound beating. He
scrambled to his feet and rushed out the
door. While the landlady was engaged
in locking the door tho scoundrel fired a
shot through it, tho bullet barely missing
her body. He then made Ids escape.

The Police Commissioners should brace
up a little about this time and see that the
officers rid the city, as nearly as possible,
ol the loafers who are now gathering here
in anticipation of their usual harvest of
crime during the State Pair.
Every idler found hanging about the
dives should either be driven out of the
City or locked tip. The hop-growers and
fruit-growers can scarcely get men enough
to harvest their crops, and there is no ex
cuse for any man being idle. Those who
are hanging about the city are here for
criminal purposes, and nothing else. The
dives on X, Land Front streets are lilh d

Hundreds of people remain from the
state Fair every year because of the dan
ger of falling victims to these thugs, and
the citizens of Has city should take steps
to have the evil abated by making known
their wishes to the Police Commissioners.
It is safe to say that the X and L street
dives, from Pront to Fourth streets, jt
raided by the police, would pan out from
fifty to 100 as worthless and criminal
specimens of humanity as could be found
outside the wails of the State prisons.
That these creatures are nightly en
gaged in robberies and burglaries is
shown by the reports in the daily press f
the city. The incident above related
shows that some of them would not even
hesitate to murder a person for daring to
protect his or her home.
If there is any good reason why these
fellows should not be gotten rid of, it is
not known to the general run of citizens
who wish to see the city kept so free from
the criminal element that visitors' will

OUR PUBLIC POUND.
An Official of tho Humane Society
Roundly Denounces It.
11. J. Craft, representing the Western
Humane Educational Society at St. Paul.
and also the Western Humane Journal,
was in the city yesterday in the interests
of the society and with a view to urging
citizens to form a Humane Society here.
He left this morning for San Francisco to
call upon the oflicers of the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals,
after v, hi.ii he will return to Sacramento.
While here Mr. Craft paid a visit te> the
City Pound, and says that tho method
there employed of putting animals to
death is opposed to the means employed
in any other city of importance where
the Humane Society's influence la held.
He denounces the Sacramento method
roundly, and also thinks that animals
kept for somo time in the pound elo. not
have the care that they should, though
the Poundkeeper insisted that they are
well fed anel given all necessary shelter.

Tho Police Commissioners Fall to
Atfi*oe> on a City Jail.
There was a meeting ofthe Polico Com
missioners yesterday morning for the
purpose of considering the matter of se
lecting quarters for a City Jail.
Chief of Police Drew was strongly in
favor of tho old Wells-Fargo building on
Sc,,,i,i s treet. He said lie would not
occupy his office in the old City Jail after
the first ofthe comingmonth. "The water
tank wa- a necessary adjunct to the fin
tment Bystem, but it could not be
used with safety to those occupying the
lower story ofthe City Jail.
Mayor Comstock did not favor t!
end -treet proposition, and the> Commis
sioners adjourned without action, further
than to advertise for proposals from
property-owners to lease to the city a
building for temporary use, which notice
appears in our advertising columns.

The Effects of Coffee.
Coffeo owes its stimulating and refresh
ing qualities to coffeino. lt also contains
gum and sugar, fai, acids, eassein and
wood and fiber. Like tan, it powerfully
increases the respiration, but, unlike it,
does not affect its depth.
By its use tiie rate of the pulso is in
creased and the action of the skin dimin
ished. It lessens the amount of tbe blood
sent to tlie organs of the body, distends
the veins ami contracts the capillaries,
thus preventing the waste of tissue. It is
a mental stimulus of a high order, and
one that is liable to great abuse.
Carried to excess it produces abnormal
wakefulness, indigestion, acidity, heart
burn, irritability of temper, trembling,
irregular pulse, a kind of intoxication
ending in delirium and great injury to
the spinal functions.
Unfortunately there are many coffee
tipplers who depend upon it as a drunk
ard upon his dram.
On ihe other hand, codec is of sovereign
efficacy in tiding over the nervous system
Coffee is also, in its place, an excellent
medicine. In typhoid fever its action is
frequently prompt and decisive, lt is in
dicated in tlie early stages before local
t'oifee dispels stupor and lethargy, is an
antidote for many kinds of poison, and
is valuable in spasmodic asthma, whoop
ing cough, cholera infantum and Asiatic
It is also excellent as a preventive
against infectious or epidemic diseases.
In districts rife with malaria and fever
tlie drinking of hot collee before passing
into the open air has enabled persona liv
ing in such places to escape contagion.—
