Chicago, Aus:. I.— Streetervllle. otherwise
known as the "District of Lake Michigan." will
soon t»- no more, and with its passing Chicago
will see the end of a vexatious controversy. As
a squatter on a large tract of filled ground
directly opposite the most fashlonab* residence
distiici of Chicago, Captain George Wellington
Streeter, a picturesque character, has been for
years a fly In the ointment of Chicago's great
ness. With his courthouse and small army of
soldiers he pet up his own government and
defied all local or State jurisdiction. The scenes
of bloodshed and riot that took place periodi
cally in the district served to emphasize the
fact that Streeter was sovereign and that the
authorities of Chicago were powerless to main
tain order. But even the Streeter dynasty had
to fall before the resistless power which In
Chicago is called progress. Th" downfall of
Streeter was finally accomplished by a warrant
for the dissolution of the district signed by
Judge Chytraus, who entered a decree declaring
George Wellington Streeter a squatter and
without rights to the land upon which ho had
erected his courthouse. By this decree the title
of Mrs. Louisa Ha'.y to the land is established.
Although Streeter still claims other land In the
tract. t)i» decision is generally believed to settle
matters so far as the "District <>f Lake Mich
igan" is concerned. The captain will not be
compelled to restore the property to its rightful
owner until ten days have passed. Meanwhile
Streeter will vaca*e his tent and shanty on the
property, and. companled by "Marier."* his
helpmeet. Is expected to fold up hia tent like

Chicago Is a step nearer to the end of lta
fight for cheaper gas. Judge Grosscup. of tho
United States Circuit Court, has again sustained,
the Ity In Its battle tor T."» cent gas. In a d»
d3ion. Just announced, he sustained the ds
inurrer of the city to the amended bill filed by
the People's Gas Ughi and Coke Company,
asking for an Injunction restraining the city
of Chicago from eaxfuiclng the city ordinance)
fixing the rate for gas at 75 cents for 1.000
cubic, feet. The court h Id that In the point of
Jurisdiction the comp'ainants did not make It
clear that the court has pown to act. The de
clsion is regarded by the attorneys for the city
as a signal victory. In addition to the order
dismissing the bill 'for want of Jurisdiction, tho
court permitted the taking of an appeal to the>
Supreme Court. The appeal bond was fixed at
$»;0«>,00«>. The appeal bi to operate as a star
of order and there will he no immediate move,
on the part of the city to enforce the provisions
of the ordinance on which the attack was mafia

The senate of the University of Chicago, (a
body composed of heads of departments) ha»
voted in favor of whal hi called "segregation.**
and what, it is claimed, is complete separation
..f the sexes aad abolition of co-educatloa in.
the 'Junior College." The mea and women oS
th> . first and second college years wall be per
mitted to dance together and to use a common
library, where conversation is forbidden, but
they WUI not he taught together. The rjuestlou
is now before the board of rrusteam, and friends
of co-education are fearful that th! 3 body will
ratify the action of the senate. In some quar-*
tr rs the step is< regarded as a blow at the funda
mental principles of co-education sOHI a loud
protest Is being; made. Ir is even sai<i that th«
ngbt will be carried to the Rockefeller family
in hope that by this means the Impending ca>
lamlty to th>- cause of co-education la Chicago
may be averted.

President Harper in advocating rh» Batloni
of the sexes is to render the university mora
attractive to the sons of rich men. who now pass)
the Chicago institution by to tend universities
where women are not admitted, or at least ar«
