Commisioner Fox was kept busy the latter part of last week adjudicating cases in behalf of Uncle Sam. St. Paul's Sunday School had its Christmas Sunday, and the little ones were made happy with appropriate presents. The week preceding Christmas was a pretty busy one in Ironton. The merchants did a thriving trade in goods, barter and cash. Christmas day passed quietly enough in the Valley. There was nothing out of the usual going on and the day par took more of Sunday than the usual midwinter festival. Jesse Allison of Reynolds county and C. Gross of Wayne county were before Commissioner Fox last week, charged with violating the Internal Revenue law. Allison was held and Gross dis charged. At the K. P. ball to-night none but those in mask will be permitted on the floor until after midnight. Others cniwt go to the gallery, to which an ad mittance fee of twenty-five cents will be charged.

The editor last week received the following: "Dr. and Mrs. Henry M. Jones announce the marriage of their daughter, Martha Carroll, to Mr. Thomas Kennedy Francis, Tuesday De cember 11th 1894, Saint Louis." All who know the bride must congratulate the happy groom upon the prize he has drawn in the lottery matrimonial, and will join us in wishing him and her all possible happiness and prosper ity. They will be "at home" at the residence of Dr. Jones Wednesday and Thursday this week. The sack containing the paper mail Saturday morning was taken uy by the mail messenger here in badly mutila ted condition. It looked as though it had passed through a cyclone. When thrown off the mail-car the suction from the swiftly morning train sucked the sack beneath the wheels. It was dirty, greasy, and cut almost into sec tions, and the paper and merchandise it contained torn and mutilated. The postmaster had a fine time sorting the odds and ends and putting this and that properly together. On Tuesday evening, Dec. 19, with out ostentation and in the presence of a few friends, at the residence of T. Bascom Lane, in the city. Rev. 1. P.

The closing should have taken place a month or six weeks ago. The throat trouble now raging some doctors call it diptheria, and others give it anoth er name this epidemic, whatever it may be termed, might have been checked long ago if the approved meth od of isolation had been resorted to. Unhappily this was not done, and the consequeuce. to a great extent, is sick ness and death to many a family which might have been spared. But, better late than never; and we hope the di rectors may see their way clear to keep the schools closed until the epidemic shall have passed away. La3t Thursday night a young Gen tlemen from Michigan was thrown from a freight train north of Hogan by the head brakeman, while the train was running at the rate of several miles an hour. The youth was beating his way south. His leg was broken by the fall, and be lay by the side of the track several hours until he was seen by some of the local railroad men, who took him up and carried him to Hogan station. There he lay all day Friday, the railroad authorties at headquarters refusing to have the company take charge of him. Sheriff Fisher was applied to, but he had no right to put the county to charges for the care of the unfortunate youth. Finally, one of the pusher boys brought him to Ar cadia ana sent to ironton lor uc. Strong: who went over, dressed the wound, and set the leg, and had him transported to Mrs. Weathers' board ing-house. There he lies now, and will no doubt recover in due time; but his experience of the past week will always form a fervid chapter of his life Mrs. P. O'Brien has leased the Arca dia House and grounds, and is even now having the place gone over pre paratory to making extensive improv ments. The lease runs for five years, with the option, at the end of that per iod, of re-leasing for another fire years. The old outbuildings are being cleared away, and new additions will be built this winter and 6pring. The main building will'be put in thorough re pair, and the grounds improved. A music hall, a building for the accom modation of children during inclement weather, and a smoking room for gen tle men, will be built separate and apart from the hotel proper. The lat ter will be something alter the style of the Log Cabin at Graniteville, so well and favorably known to the many friends of the genial vice-president of the Syenite Granite company, and will be placed close to the famous spring in- the lot which takes it name from those sparkling, cooling, flowing wa ters. In a word, the old-time lustre of the Arcadia House in its palmiest days will be taken on again, and new at tractions added, lbe lady who has taken it in charge is fully equal to the task 6he has assumed, aad wo predict for her success and prosperity. The young German who had his leg fractured by jumping from a freight train last Thursday night, tells his story as follows: He had boarded the train at Arcadia, intending to beat his way southward, hoping to find work at one of the sawmills along the line. A few miles below Arcadia he was observed by the brakeman. who want ed to know what be was doing there and where he was going. The Ger man told him. "Have you any mon ey?" was the next query. No, he hadn't a cent. "Have you nothing to pay for riding? Haven't you a pocket-knife?" Yes, he had a pocketknife, but he didn't want to part with it. "Then hit the ground!" The train at this time was moving rapidly. "I tell you to hit the ground!" The German got on the ladder leading from the top of the car, but when be saw how fast the train was running, he begged to be permitted to remain until the next stopping-place. "Hit the ground, I tell you!" was the answer, and the brakeman made a motion with his feet as if to mash the fingers holding on to the ladder. Therefore the trespass er let go and "bit the ground" 60 for cibly as to bruise his body and break his leg. As soon as he had sufficiently recovered be crawled to the bushes and broke off a couple of sticks, and aided by these he hobbled his way to Hogan, a mile distant. When the local railroad men learned how he bad been treated they were very indignant and did all they could to relieve him. They telegraphed to headquarters and notified the local civil authorities, but both declined to give assistance the former because the injured man had been hurt while trespassing, and the latter because he was a non-resident and not entitled to aid from the coun ty. If the young man's story is true, the actioa of the brakeman was cold blooded and cruel, and. we take pleas ure in saying, unusual to railroad men, who generally are more leinient in such cases than the rules of the road strictly construed permit. The young man tells his story without bitterness and is apparantly a well-meaning man. He makes no threats, and ia very grateful to the physician and other good Samaritians who have taken him in, in the scriptural, not the latter-day sense. About three months since we took occasion to call attention to the man egement of the city finances, and for that bit of insolence were jumped on to as the duck is said to have gone for the june-bug. We wanted to know what had been done with the city's revenues for the year ending March 1, 1894, and why a public exhibit had not been made of the receipts and disburse ments. In our poor way we endeav ored to approximate the receipts and the usual expenditures for salaries and incidentals, and then asked to be in formed as to what had been done with the residue. In reply the mayor and and a part of the council wrote a very long letter, specifically setting forth, item by item, the expenditures subse quent to the period about which inqui ry had been made; but not a word let ting light into the expenditures of the preceding year the year in question. It is true the letter claimed there was a balance in the treasury at the end of that year, of $372.28; but how that balance was determined no man, ex cept those on the inside, knows to this day. The officials claim that no finan cial statement for the year ending March 1, 1894, could be made "be cause the records were burned" the December preceding, and there were no means for getting at the receipts and dispursements. Then how werip tl. J? Aoro no . 1 1 " ia T Lr. wjiyure 90t4.4y vumuteut iv mis question, propounded time and againi no answer has been given, and wa leave this section of the matter for the present. Monday, December 10th, was the time appointed by ordinance for settlement with the collector, but for some reason unknown to the un initiated it was decided to let the meet ing of the council for that day go by, The law (Sec. 3, Ord. 7) says: "The Collector 6hall make a general settle ment on the second Monday of Decem ber, in each year, of all collections made during the year; and at which time be shall deliver to the Mayor and Council, then in session, a complete and correct list of unpaid taxes, to gether with description of the real es tate upon which taxes are due, and unpaid." Notwithstanding this man aatory provision, tne meeting, as above stated, was permitted to lapse; but later in the week a meeting was called for the 17th, to enable the May or to resign, and the Collector was no tified to be present and settle. When the time came, the Mayor resigned, his resignation to take effect Decern ber 31st, and an election ordered to be held that day to fill tne vacancy; but the Collector did not put in an appear ance, being absent from the city. Next day the question came up as to whether an election could be called to fill a vacancy which did not exist at the time the call was made; and to make all things sure, the Mayor again called the council in session Tuesday afternoon, when his resignation was tendered and received outright, and the election duly ordered for the 31st This time the Collector was on hand, but he said that he was unable to make his settlement then because he had loaned out a portion of the city's mon ey, and asked to have his settlement continued to January! To this the complaisant authorities gave their as sent. Why wasn't a settlement had, and the status of the city's finances definitely determined, regardless of the condition of the collector's pocket- DOoKr it, wnen tne balance due was determined, the collector was unable to pay over that balance, that would come up as an after consideration ; but it was the bounden duty of the Mayor and Council to have a settlement, money or no money. We are informed that this is not the first time there has been a failure to make the settlements required oy law. mere is a rumor afloat that in the fall of 1893 a meet ing of the Council was had for the purpose of settling with the Collector, at which he did not appear. Is this rumor true? Is it true that after his failure to appear at the above named meeting another meeting was called for the express purpose of settling with him, and on that day he went hunting? t is true that he has not mad a bi monthly settlement as marshal by law for many months. Is it true that the deputy Collector has the Collector's re ceipte for nearly five hundred dol- ars, and that there has actually been paid into the treasury only one hun dred and seventy-two dollars and fifty cents since last April? What has be come of the balance? Why is it not in the treasury, into which the law says it must De "promptly paid." II these things are true, why are they permitted by those in authority over the officers? The Charter says that the Mayor shall take care that the laws of the State and the ordinances of the oity are duly enforced, respect ed and observed" which injunction applies to the Council as well in its province. The Register ask you, gentlemen, have you seen that the pro visions of the law and the ordinances in relation to the City Collector and the City finances have been "enforced, respected and observed?" If not, why not? Our article upon these matters of a few months ago created consider able heat because certain officials of the municipality regarded it as an in timation that they had been guilty of corrupt practices. No such construc tion could be fairly placed upon it, nor nor was any intimation intended. We did then, as we do now, charge laxity in the administration of the city's finan ces, which, if continued, must result n corruption and also in disaster to the city. We don't even now say that the Collector has permanently mis appropriated the funds in his hands, or that he will not be able to command a clean balance-sheet when he does set tle. But he should have been required to do his duty according to law. As it is, if, in the end, there should be a shortage, it is doubtful that a dollar could be collected from the sureties, if they chose to make it a test of law. We hope that the resolution may bo formed and hereafter strictly adhered to, to rigidly enforce every law and compel all officials to do their whole duty to the city and the people, "re gardless."

These boys all have respectable parents whom we would be grieved to see in trouble, but this rowdyism has been going on too long already, and hereafter any dis turbance or disorder about the church house wiil be given to the grand jury, together with a list of witnesses, and no pains will be spared to ferret out the guilty parties. So, boys will do well to take warning', 'or in the future the yery best of order will be required.

Kendall, aged 10 years, 4 months and 24 days. One of the bright little girls of our little city, one a general favorite with her companions and play mates, has gone. While it is hard to give up one who has become attached to our hearts and endeared to us by so many cords of tenderness, yet we know she goes out to the eternal life without one stain, and we have given back to our God a spirit undefiled. "There is no flock, however watched and tended, But one dead lamb is there. There is no fireside, however defended, But has one vacant chair. She is not dead the child of our affection But gone into that school, Where she no longer needs our poor protec tion, And Christ himself doth rule. Day after day, we think what she is doing In those bright realms of air: Year after year, her tender steps pursuing, Behold her grown more fair. We will be patient, and assuage the feeling We may not wholly stay, By silent sanctifying, not concealing The grief that must have way." Her Pastor, G. H. Duty. Francis L. Russell. Framcis L. Russell died Thursday Dec. 13, at 7:30 o'clock at the Horine residence on Broadway in the midst of bis family, after a painful illness of over six weeks' duration. Mr. Russell moved to Columbia some weeks ago in the hope that the medical attention which he would receive would check the progress of disease. He was born in Columbia in July, 1852 and was the oldest son of Col. F. T. Russell. In 1875 he married Miss Florence Hayden of Iron county, and since that time he has resided upon his farm west of Columbia.
