' There has apparently bean a strong influence brought 'to bear upon the members by the few wealthy aris tocrats who are appoeed to the rosd. When first approached xereral weeks ago on the subject it was found that a large majority of tho council were in favor of continuance, while now certain of those who were bo pronouncedly in favor are now mused as Htrongly on the other side. Straws show which way the winds blow. It is a question of a few capitalists agsicst the many laborers who have bought land and built homes on the motor line with the expectation of having this rauans of going to and from the work shops. One of the aldermen spent several hours yesterday visiting and interrogating the residents nlong the road as to tbeir wishes.

Stock Speculators Trying to Secure Control of the New York Press. [New York Correspondence Detroit Free Press.] Said a Wall street man at the Fifth Av enue hotel: "What Gould.Field and Sage are after now is to get control of the As sociated Press. They captured the Western Union ' Telegraph company, bag and baggage, at the last election. They have since ta ken full possession of the elevated rail roads. They already had control of some of the most important roads outside of New York, and they are after others. They nowpromise to start a new stock ex change of their own so that they may work the market any way they please. The next thing is to capture the Associated Press, and then, with the press, the tele graph, and the railroads in their hands, they will feel that they own the country." The Wall street man was led to these re marks by viy MR. FIELD'S NEW VENTURE IN JOUR- NALISM. Ms purchase of the Evening Express from John Kelly. Mr. Field already owned the Evening Mail, but that paper does not belong to the Associated Press. His plan is to merge it in the Express and make the consolidation a tender to the firm of Gould, Field & Sage. The senior member of the firm (senior in place though junior in years) already owns two Associated Press papers, the Tribune and World. The acquisition ©f the Express gives the trio three of the seven papers of which the association is composed. The others are the Herald, Times, Sun and Journal of Commerce. If Gould, Field, and Sage get either of these they will have control of the association. It is pretty certain that they cannot get the Herald or Times, as neither Mr. Bennett nor Mr. Jones have any desire to sell. Their choice, there fore, lies between the Sun and the Journal of Commerce. An attempt was made sometime ago to get a control ling interest in the latter, but it fell through. The Sun would be much more valuable to the New firm on [account of ITS ENORMOUS CIRCULATION. It is said that they will try hard to get it, but if they succeed it certainly will not be with the consent of the editor. They may possibly be able to buy the paper, hut they can't buy Mr. Dana. He is not in the market, even for Jay Gould's millions. Mr. Dana is now a pretty rich man, and his money is well invested. Gould, Field, and Sage know very well that they can't buy him, hut as the Sun is a stock concern they may possibly be able to buy it, or a con trolling interest in it, which would an swer their purpose just as well. The pur chase of the Express was managed so se cretly that no one knew anything about it till the thing was done.

[N. Y. Cor. Chicago Tribune.] The Ohio editon, to the number of aeventy-slz accompanied by their wives and sweethearts, de scended upon Gotham last Friday morning, and have been busily engaged ever since in iaveatigat Ing the pleasures and wlokedneßi of the town. They report New York as a lively, healthy growing city, chock full of Bights and in some respects equaling,if not surpreralng, any settlement in their own beloved state. The Times aaya that their happiness hai been marred somewhat, however, by the conduct of one of their number. So keen lathe mortification under which some of them are new laboring in con sequence that they do not hesitate to denounce the unfortunate member as a blank fool, and 11) cut duct as doable blanked aeinlnlty calculated to br.ng THE BANNEII PRBCIDKNTIAL STATE into contempt amoDg their professional brethren. The Times tells the following story : "The editor In question ia Mr. Harris, who is engaged in formu lating pub lc opinion upon the Western Reserve through a medium known to the public m the Ba venna Democrat. On Friday night Mr. Harris, without taking any of his associates into his confi dence, started out to see the city by gaslight. Bis wanderings and adventnras np to about 11 o'clock are known only to himself . About that hour a num ber of the Ohio editors, having witnessed with a great deal of interest the representation of the spec tacular play at Niblo's Cardeu, also undertook to explore the metropolis for famous and infamous re treats. Their only purpose was to verify with their own eyes TH« TKBBIBLE STOBIEJ OF DEBACCUEItY and sinful practices which have traveled westward. They turned from Broadway into Bleefeer street in search of a resort kept by "Ihe Allen." Nearing the spot they saw a venerable looking gentleman in animated conversation with two female denizens of that quarter. A closer inspection revealed the fa miliar figure of Brother Harris. It needed only a cursory glance to satisfy them that their esteemed contemporary was in the hands of sirens, and that he was unable to break the spell which they had thrown around him. They collared him, not with out load protestations being made, however, by the two women, and took him back to the Grand Central hotel for safekeeping. Saturday Harris started out again on his own hook. While sauntering along Broadway his musings were interrupted abrupt ly by A FAMILIAR slip on THE sbouuhcb and the roaring solution, "Why my dear Mr. Brown I'm glad to see you. When did you arrive In town ? Where are you stopping, and how Is Uncle Tod and all the boys?" Of course, the editor explained that his name was'nt Brown. He told the stranger what his name and place of residence was. Hardly a block away Mr. Harris was accosted by another stranger, who knew his name and all about him, and some of his neighbor's as well. It was the old "bunko streer's'' game, made familiar by many recent re pititions. The man wormed himself into the edi tor's confidence, and the result of it was that they went off together to look at a picture which tho wily stranger had JUST DB AWN IN AN AST LOTTERY. The stranger was informed by the managers of the lotteiy that his picture had been sent to his home by express. There was a balance of $121 due the stranger, so tho manager said, and he handed the money to him. About this time a little game on a table covered with green cloth was introduced into the room and the devotee of art lotteries was invited to take a hand. He won right along. Mr. Harris was bewitched by the game and he flugered his own money nervously. He had $125 and some pennies In his clothes . He succumed to the artful entreat ies of his new-found friend and J IiKG.VM TO JUGGLE TH3 DICE. He worked them like a magician, and before he knew where he was $500 was piled up to his account. There was one thing about the game he didn't quite understand, but as he was winning it dida't trouble him much. He was required to give a certain per centage of hi* winnings to the keeper of the game. All his money but about $4 wag in this percentage pile. The sum of $I,GGO was pil«d up to his credit. The Ravenna Democrat could exist for one year at least without the aid of cordwood and cabbages. Just how it came about that Mr, Harris was Induced to stake that $1,000 ou a single throw, he does not distinctly remember. At all events he was induced, and he lost . '■•■. MONET WAS POOXETSD BY THE KEEPER. The percentage pile had been growing all the while and according to the statistics, now presented he was indebted to the house an even $200 besides the $125 In cash raked in. For the $200 he drew his note and gave It to the manager of the game. He will not return to Ravenna now, ho thinks, until a remittance arrives . Tho I,nst Murder Mustery in Chicago. [Chicago Times, Deo. 5.] Yesterday morning, about 8 o'clock, while some fishermen were engaged iv their calling in the lake near the foot of Feck court, they came upou the body of a woman that to all appearances had not been in the water many hours, and that was evident ly the victim of foul play. Soon after finding the body the fishermen informed Offlcpr Florenco Don ohue, who conveyed it to the morgue, as ia usual in case the Is no identification of a body. The officer took a description of it as follows: "About 5S years of age, gray hair, dressed iv a waterproof cloak and underskirt, bai k alpaca overskiit and waist with flounces of the same material, plain bonnet and black veil, brown woolen stockings njixed with gray, and black c'oth gaiter book). There was nothing found on the body that would lead to Identification." That waa all the that officer learned of the unfortunate, but a Times re porter late last night became possessed of certain knowledge that makes it seem most likely that an other dreadful and mysterious crime has been com mittad. The opinion was expressed by all who saw the body that it could not have been in the water many hours — not longer then over night— also that the women belonged to the middle or upper grade of society; but those who paid moat attention to the body at the time did not see what was plainly visible to a reporter for the Times and one or two gentlemen who visited the dead house last night, and that was the plain marks of fingers upon the dead woman's neck . The marks are quite deep, and since the body has been out of the water I hey show very clearly The fact that her bonnet and veil wore in position and that the body his every appearance that the woman possessed money or val uables, and the marks on her throat ara almost con - elusive, though silent, evidence of an awful crime. Officer Donohue was of opinion that he knew the woman— that he had arrested her at some time, bnt he is evidently mistaken, as he is said t.i have ad mitted last evening* The only thing found on the body besides the clothing described waa a white handkerchief, which bore no marks.
