amounted to 9,275 barrels, against 9,450
barrels the preceding week. This week
was started off with an excellent head on
Monday, followed by nearly as good Tues
day, but a lower one on Wednesday and
Thursday, and the prospects seem to be
favorable to a heavier output of flour tb&n
for tho last two weeks. Six mills with a
total capacity of 6,500 barrels, are doing'
no work at all, in most instances under
going repairs. The flour market has un
dergone no change, remaining fairly
strong, with an undercurrent sentiment
prevailing that an improvement will soon
take plaoe.

The Proceedings of Last Night's Meetin
the Board of Water Citnmisaioners—A
Lively Miseusston — Mire Pumps to
be Built—The East Bide Xunntl.
At the regular meeting of the board of
water commissioners held last evening,
there were present his honor the mayor,
commissioners Foote, Davis and Grim
shaw, Superintendent Henion and Chief
Engineer Waters.
The minutes of last previous meeting
were read and approved.
The standing committee on claims re
ported back the pay roll and bills for De
cember, recommending that warrants for
the amounts designated be drawn in
favor of the proper persons, and the
report was adopted.
The committee asked for further time
before reporting on the old Folsom claim,
which was granted.
The committee on construction reported
respecting pump No. 5, giving the opinion
that any further test of the pump is un
necessary to establish its efficiency, and
recommended that the board take imme
diate steps towards building another pump
of the same capacity and ' pattern and
place it. in the East side pumping house.
Tie ?omraistee. found that the pump is a
great economy to the city, oostiag much
less than any othtr style. The report was
accompanied by testimonials from
experts, who were a unit
, lEa pnmpa
unequivocally the best in. existonoe, ocon
pying muoh less space than any other
pnmp, and being capable of all that its
claimed for it by the inventor.
Commissioner Foote objected to the
adoption of the report for the reason that
there was a sentiment in the board that
there should be a test made of the pumps
by parties outside of the board. Mr. Foote
stated that while he himself was satisfied
with the test given there are tux payers
who wi3ll such a test, and such a test should
be given to the satisfaction of the tax
Commissioner Grimehaw explained as
chairman of the committee making the
report, that he had drawn np the report be
cause he believed there should be some
thing done in tha premises without delay.
The report is the summing np of
a week's work. It had already
been agreed that tkere should
be three of these pumps built. So far as
tax payers are conoerned there will al
ways be found
They will grumble at every public im
provement whioh shall cost any saat of
Commissioner Davis stated that he had
been in favor to give a test by disinterest
ed parties, but during the past week, after
having ftivea the matter a thorough and
searching investigation, he oould see bo
reason why other pumps should not be
made at once. He had not heard a tax
payer find a word of faalt.
Commissioner Foote took the loor
■gain to further oppose the adoption of
tha report: Commissioner Davis has
stated at previous meetings of the board
that the wheel which drives "Jumbo" is
not of sufficient power, and for that reasoa
a test should, in the interests of right and
to satisfy the taxpayers, be made at onoe.
The chief engineer explained that if
-during a test a main should burst or any
accident should happen, there are people
who would raise the hue and cry that
fiere was something wrong with the
Commissioner GrimEhaw believed it en
tirely unnecessary to go oat of the city to
find expe'ta.
Mayor Ames called Commissioner Grim
shaw to the chair, to discuss the question.
He wa3 thoroughly satisfied with the
test which had been made
a month and a hftlf previously,
while hfc believed, with Commissioner
Foote, that the wheel was not efficient, he
believed the pump ig ample, and was pro-'
pared to vote for two more pumps at the j
present meeting.
The discussion was continued at great
length, and was participated in by every
member present, when Commissioner
Foote moved that the report be laid upon
the tablo for another week, but the motion
roceiviag no second the question of adopt
iag the report was put. Commissioner
Davis asked to be excased from voting in
respect to Commissioner Brown, who was
absent. The report was then adopted.
Com. Grimshaw moved that the engi
neer be instructed to advertise for propo
sals for the construction of two more new
pumps, 10,000,000 gallons capacity.
Engineer Waters stated that he should
not suggest any material changes in the
pumps, but should simplify it in some par
ticulars. He would guarantee that tha
oity would be indemnified from all charges
for royalty.
The motion was carried.
The engineer smbmitted plans and spee
lfications for the tunnel for the East Bide
distriot, leading frpm tho pamping station
to Main street, and the engineer was au
thorized to advertise for proposals for
building the same.
The engineer reported : the work
done by Youngren & Gleoson, and I
stated that there is now dae the same $1,- i
094, and a warrant was ordered drawn for
the amount.

A Tonne Milwaukee CUrl Str*y« from
Home autl Is Thomiikt to be In Bad
Quarters In Chicago.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, Jan. 3.—The detectives of this
city are at present anxiously engaged in
the -search for a young girl named Ida
Ertner, aged sixteen, who has been miss
ing from Milwaukee since Oct. 20, a tele
gram having been received from the chief
of police of that city to-day, saying that
i she is supposed to be in a house of dis
j repute on the south side. Ida is sai* to be
[ the daughter of respectable parents, who
had her attending school. She was a wil
ful little miss, and as she had been talking
of visiting some friends in another
part of the state, nothing was thought of
her dis&pi earance for a while. At i last,
not receiving word from her after some
weeks had passed, the parents became
anxious and }. wrote letters to all their
friends inquiring ab jut ■ her. They: were
surprised to learn that she had not been
seen. Driven to desperation and, fearing
she had been killed or lost, they then in
stituted search in Milwaukee, but without
avail . and at last gave her up for lost.
About two weeks sgo a young man from Mi
lwaukee was visiting. Chicago and passed
a young girl on Fourth avenue: who he
thought resembled Ida Ertner, but as he
did know she had left home, and as she
was .well dressed in gaudy colors,:; he
thought nothing further of it. Returning
home he happened to speak of the ooour
rence,when he was told she was missing.
The story' was told the parents. Then it
came out that the day before her disap
pearance, while on her way to school, some
of her classmates saw her talking with a
flashily dressed woman in the street who
was a stringer. It is now i
thought the woman was a procuress, and j
lured the girl from her home to lead a life
of sin and shame. The detectives have
not suooeeded in finding her yet, but are j
confident she will be found.' She ie a small
girl with rather light complexion, is a lit- '
tie fleshy and waddles some in her walk.

Mr. Carlisle's Committees Conposedof3ll

frum Southern State*.
New York World. ______
. A simple analysis of the construction of
the standing committees of the house will
set at re3t all the stupid charges of favor
itism of the sou made for political pur
poses against Mr. Carlisle.
Everybody knows that the majority
rules in the committed room as well as in
the House. The Chairmanships of Ways
and Means and Appropriations are impor
tant, because the Chairman of the former
Committee has a sort of political recogni
tion as a leader, and the latter is accepted
p.s authority on the important matters of
appropriations. The two leading chair
men are chosen because of their especial
fitness and experience, and the positions
accorded them are in recognition of their
abilities. At the head of these Commit
tees Mr. Carlisle hag placed Morrison, of
Illinois,. and Band all, of Pennsylvania.
The other Chairmanships are mainly oov
e ted because they bring members who £11
them into prominence on the floor. But
the Chairman is at all times subject to the
will of a majority of his Committee.

mittees under Speaker Carlisle are divided

Only on three unimportant Committees
the Committees on the District of Colum
bia, tho Revision of Laws and Ventilation,
has the South a majority. On every other
Committee the Southern members are in
a minority, and of the whole Committee
strength they have a majority against
them of nearly twoto one. •/:
Under Speaker Keifer the Committee on
Appropriations, Judiciary, Coinage. Com
meroo and Agriculture, all important com
mittees, had on them the same ntmber of
Southern membera as are on the earn*
Committees under Mr. Carlisle. The Ways
and Means Committee had four Souther*
representatives, while it now has five.
What folly, then, to pretend that the
Southern States have received any un<3?e
recognition from Mr. Carlisle, or that me
South has any greater influence or oontrel
in legislation than the population and in
terests of the section fairly entitle it to!
The charge is made for mischief aad

Clsvblahd, 0., Jan. 3.—The Cleveland
Women's Christian Temperance union is
about to initiate another political move
ment, planned by Miss Frances Willard,
vice president of the National union, who
recently left here for Chicago, from which
point she will superintend a similar work
through the state and locate unions
throughout the United States. The pro
ject is to get a million signatures to a
memorial to be presented at the next na
tional convention of each party, asking
them to insert some prohibition plank
in their platform. *':/-:'-t*
The Cleveland union has given Gon. Ed
F. Meyer a splendid and costly souvenir,
specially procured in New York by Mr.
and Mrs. John D. Rookafellow, in reoogni
tion of his effective and gratuitous service
as counselor and director of the second
amendment campaign in Ohio, last fall.

The superstitious young conp!as who

leant that there are thirty-two days in the
year oa wkieh it is considered unlucky to
marry, according to the authority of i
wnnnicript which o«aaas down from the

Jane 7,15; July i. 19; September 6, 7;
October 6; November 15, 16;. December
15,16,17. .It will be seen that January is
the worst month and October the best for
marriage-. Perhaps this superstition arose
i from the faot that in olden days,, as well
•s modern days, October was the loveliest
month in the —the season of plenty,
Harvesting and merry making.

What They Had to Say for Them
salves—Pathetically Humorous
Pleas of the Prisoners.
[Cincinnati Enquirer.]
These moon.shine-rs have been accumulating
»n the Covin^ton jail for three months, a
buiali ptr cent, of the number too lazy to
■work bating given themselves up so as to
secure free board and lodging for the winter.
They will come out in the spring with the
birds and flowers, and, fattened to plumpness
by good government feed and want of exer
cise, they will resume manufacturing the oil
of joy, and again forget to pay the revenue
tax. They were brought into court in squads
of ten to receive sentence as their names
were called. More or less attention had been
paid to toilets, and soap had been used with
an unstinted hand. Jeans in gray or butter
nut was tho prevailing attire, with hats more
or less dilapidated, and collarless cotton
shirts. One lan tern- jawed young man
with an eye for the startling in contrasts,
had a full shock of hair, bright biuo jeans
coat, yellow shirt and white canvas base ball
shoes. Ages varied as much as did j>ersonal
appearance, the years running from 19 to 65.
Each man before receiving sentence was
asked if he had anything to say, and there
were but few that did not avail themselves of
the opportunity. William Tuttle, aged, gray
and bent, said with a quivering voice: "1
know, jedge, I dun dun it. I never was in
jail befo'. I'm an ole man. an' will leave a
helpless family. I dun don't know nuthin'
'bout law." Apart from his closing Hate
ment there was a sincerity in what ho said,
and a pathos in its delivery that created a
just sympathy. He was given the lightest
sentence imposed by law, thirty days impris
onment and a tine of $100. If he hasn't the
money he will have to work it out at the rato
of 75 cents a day.
One of the prisoners was a man who had
been over-shrewd in his attempted evasion of
the law. Being a seller and not a manu
facturer, he would set a bottle or demijohn of
the fluid on the mantel and walk out of the
room. Returning ho would find the liquor gone
and money in its place. Another man ap
pealed for a light sentence, saying he was
"Stifled," which meant subject to fits. David
S. "Williams, dismissed beforo court wa3 over
was asked, "Did you come voluntarily to the
deputy marshal?" He replied with great
candor, "No, sir; I was sent for." He had
undergone a hard experience. Not very ,
guilty in the first place, the arresting officer
felt warranted in merely telling him to come
to town on a certain date. In tho interval
his wife deserted home and went to live with
an adjacent moonshiner, whose still within a
few days thereafter was seized and destroyed.
As one means of revenge the moonshiner be
gan burning fences, and was one day threat
ening a sister of tho prisoner, when tho latter
came up, and making the charge of cow
ardice, was promptly shot in the side. "Hit
laid me up for seven weeks, jedge, an' that's
why I didn't keep my 'pintment with th«
revenue officer. Tho ball was '38.'" The
prisoner was still wearing the same clothes in
which he was shot, the holes made by the
bullet through coat, vest and trousers waist
band being still unmended.
One poor wretch made an appeal for clem
ency on account of his children, one a girl of
13 and the other a boy of 7. The man was a
widower, and before leaving home ho had in
duced some woman to go and live at the
house to look after the little ones. Ho said,
appealingly, "she promised to stay only till
Christmas, an' then she'd go home." A cu
riosity in the batch was a moonshiner dude.
Somewhat effeminate in . appearance, his
short, curly black hair was neatly parted in
the centre, from either side of which, resting
on his forehead, was a dainty little spiral
lock. Next came Charles Sturgis, sall*w
and sickly-looking, with boils breaking out
all over him, the result of too much pork
and other greasy dirt. James Nolan, with a ■
grave countenance told his h«nor that dnrtoig
the prevalace of smallpox in the mowßfeaiitt
some one said trhsekj was g*od for the dis
ease, and as a protection to himself and for
the convenience of f »i«?nds who' f eand c«n
tagion he kept liquor in the b«ase fax ecu
sumption and sale. Jean Brown followed So
lan and woe sentenced to sixty days impris
onment and 100 fine, ti»e convicting evidence
having been given by bis brothers, George;
and William.
KTery H«n His Own Weather Pr*phr t
For all meteoric or storm observations on
large bodies of land in the temperate rone fix
yourself with face looking toward the main
sea or ocean.
If the wind is blowing in your face at *he
rate of only four to eight miles an hour rain
is not apt to be present, as the atmosphere
will likely be expanding and absorbing water
and converting it into vapor and holding i
suspended in the air until proper planetary
phenomena transpire.
If the wind is moving at tho rate of ton to
fifteen miles en hour, it is probably passing to \
a rain, hail or snow-storm further inland, and |
you will likely find the barometer falling.
If it is moving at the rate of twenty to
thirty miles an hour it is likely passing fur
ther inland to a more violent rain, hail or
snow precipitation. If it is moving at the
rate of forty to sixty miles an hour, it is prob
ably blowing further inland to a water.spout,
hurricane or tornado, etc.
When you find the wind turned around
(about 180 degrees) aud blowing on your back
the storm has passed you, and it is on its way
back toward the sea, and you will bo apt to
find the barometer rising and temperature
If the wind turns partially around (about
ninety degrees) and blows on your right and
off your left, the storm is then supposed to
pass by your left on its way toward the sea.
If the wind should turn the other way around
(about ninety degrees) and blow on your left
and off your right, then the storm is likely
passing by the way of your right toward the
sea. There is frequently a kind of a short
lull in front of traveling storms. There are
mild local rains caused by slow changing po
sitions of the planets, etc.
By noting these rules and watching the
barometer the course and severity of storms
may soon be tolerably well understood, even
for great distances from the observer.
A Justice Who Isn't So Slouch.
An Arkangaw justice of the peace is said to
have sent the following letter to Lord
Coleridge: "I am mighty sorry that you
ain't comin' to this state, for I did 'low to
have a high ole time with you. I've got a
son that can out-rastle the next man, and I
ain't no slouch nuther, lemme tell yer. I've
been a judge five years, and have whu'pped
more men than a few. When I makes a
rulin'in court she sticks. I ain't much in
chancery business, but I'm wus than high
