Citj'8 EeJIPAL FATHERS DIE AS A BODT 'last session of Councils as they have irganiied for the past two years, was Hivesterday afternoon. There was good lance of members and the lobbies were wi(h interested spectators. Although er branch was in session two hours, jerable business was transacted, some f general interest for Gourley sent in two veto messages, Mlrainst Chief Bigelow's sidewalk ordi , which was passed notwithstanding bjections, and another on the Arm alley vacation.

There leveralitem In this ordinance worthy rery condemnation from the Mayor's it of view and at first glance would seem lead to certain liaidahips. But, as the , or says, the ordinance should he care y lead to be undeistood. I agree with u Mayor that no member of Councils drew D the bill, there is not one of ns capable f doing it. During his term as Council man, it was not customary for members 0 rrame bills of this kind. It was ct to thoo conversant with such matters. o deplorable condition of our sidewalks ios comment to visitors to our city and ef to our people. The business men n town and residents of the East End want the best and most economical side Iks and they all prefer the flagstone or ihalt to brick. Brick pavements are a isance and a disgrace, and Chief Bigelow nzht In asking stone or asphalt sidewalks j streets paved with the same. In order o secure uniformity and decently paved idcwalks it is necessary to have a law to cm' el it and someone authorized to en ere that law. I believe Mr. Bigelo w Is con ditions and possessed of the proper Judg ment not to abuse the power given him by is ordinance. Wo have too long paid more tention to paving the streets for our four 'ted beasts than to our walks for human nigs- We should reverse the rule now. He Also Indorses Sir. BIgelow. 1 conclusion, the Mayor says Chief Bige iw admits the Imperfection of this ordi ttnee. If that is true, Councils should ask or Mr. Bigelow's resignation at once. The 'lea of a man presenting a. bill like this and hen saying it is not what It appears is disgust ng to me, but I don't believe Mr. Bigelow las ever intimated anything that could be airly construed to mean what tho Mayor avs. I know ho has never said so to me. .nd I don't believe he has said anything of I he kind to any Councilman present. I Mr. Keating's emphatic statement caused i sensation. Councilmen looked from one o another significantly. Mr. Lambi sug gested that Mr. Bigelow be sent for to say chetlier he had made the statement at-rih'-ted to him or not, but the messenger ed with the information that the had left the city. The discussion of made, and the four lot owners, who oppose it. He was sure the ordinance would be a violation of the law relating to "majority in interest and number," and would only cause trouble if passed. Mr. Wilson supported the vacation, say ing the railroad company would make im provements offsetting the benefits they would receive. Mr. Flinn was opposed to the vacation, and said it was a practical gift of ?20,000 worth of property to the railroad company, though there was not much nse in opposing anything a railroad wants in this city as "they get there just the same." Mr. Magee supported the ordinance and ridiculed Mr. Flinn's valuation oi theprop ertv as being too high. Mr. Flinn declared he was right, but said the ordinances would pass and then the Mayor would veto them. The vote was then taken and the ordi nances were passed by a vote of 33 to 6, Messrs. Bigham, Flinn, Kelly, McGuire, O'Donnell and Pfeiffer voting no. A CHAIN OF MURDERS THE COMROLLER'S RETORT. Council Again Urged to Provide Against DeEclencle How the Debt Is Being Bed need There Is Money Enough to Meet Maturing Bonds. The annual report of Controller Morrow was presented in Common Council by Mr. Magee, and a motion to have 500 copies printed passed both branches. The Con troller devotes considerable space to sug gesting improvements in handling the city finances. Among others, one to prevent annual deficiencies in appropriations, as stated in yesterday's Dispatch. He directs attention to the purchase of nearly 5900,000 worth of city bonds during the year, and addition of $1,600,000 to the sinking fund investments in the past four years, which he regards as safe from any possible loss. He calls attention to the fact that 425,600 of bonds will be due next spring, and savs the appropriate sinking funds will be able to redeem them if Coun cils will authorize him to make a transfer of fund;. He also asks authorit v to extend all investments in any of the sinking funds at a rate of 4 per cent, which, he says, would re lieve disbursements to that extent and per mit the application of the cash balances to redemption of bonds held by private sub scribers. Unless the appropriations for water loan sinking are increased, he says the fund will not redeem all the water bonds due six years hence, and the extension of all such bonds will obviate the use of that much cash and the necessity of refunding the bonds. He then follows with a detailed state ment of moneys received during the past fiscal year, the total being 5,234,803 21, The detailed statement of balances in the sinking funds shows a total of 362,906 17. City bonds purchased during the year for investment by sinking funds amounted to $862,403 72, and the total purchased since 1888 is $1,576,478 97. The investments held bv sinking funds show a total of 3,961,187 40. The total bonded debt is $13,204,401 87, on which the average rate of interest is 5.21. Then follows a review of the city's bonded debt and a detailed state ment of the year's revenues, as printed in this paper yesterday.

Tno Pawnee Backs Are Patting; on Their War Paint The Messiah's Arrest Canses Hard Peelings Other Indians Jolnlnc; the Fanatical Fighters. Guthbie, O. T., March 28. The Pawnee Indians have been engaging in the ghost dance on their reservation for the past week, and have worked themselves into such a frenzy that they now openly declare their intention of going on the warpath. Two hundred bucks have donned their war clothes, put on their war paint and are being joined daily by others. Deputy Marshals Swens and Apesiman heard of the threatened troubles on the reservation last Saturday and went there to investigate. They found that an alarming condition of aOairs existed, and at night secretly arrested Prank White and Buffalo Black,' who claimed to be emissaries from the Indian Messiah and who were agitating the Indians. The dep uties had hardly cleared the limits of the village when the arrest of the Messiahs be came known. A dozen frenzied Indians made after them and chased them for a long distance, but the marshals finally got safely away with their prisoners. The Marshals 'state that the Indians are terribly in earnest and have threatened vengeance against the whites for depriving them of their lands. Couriers have been sent by the Pawnees to the Iowas, Sac and Pox, Missouris and Kickapoos urging them to join in the war. Reports from these places state that lawe numbers of Indians are joining the Pawnees bands. The troop of United States cavalry which passed through here yesterday-from Port Keno it has now been learned were en route to the Pawnee reservation to quell the uprising. . "Wabsaw, March 28. Police inquiries into the case of two brothers named Koulik vosky, who are imprisoned here on the charge of murdering and robbing a peasant near Bielostock, have revealed the practice of the wholesale murder of emigrants on the frontier. Already the naked bodies of five victims have been discovered in the snow in the woods adjacent to the house occupied by the Koulikvoskys, who lived in the village of Monki. The search of bodies is proceeding. There have been many disappearances of late in the neighborhood of the Koulik yosky residence, and the police estimate that they have murdered at least 40 per sons. The residents of Monki have been greatly startled by the revelations concern ing the brothers, and there is much excite ment throughout the whole district. The elder brother, who was a peasant farmer, has a young wife, who, it is charged, took advantage of her sex to abet her husband in his crimes, receiving her share of the spoils secured from the unfortunate victims ot her wiles. Smuggling Emigrants Ont ot tho Country. The youngest brother had been a soldier in the Russian army, but his time had ex pired. He took to smuggling across the frontier as a means of livelihood, and, natu rally, became thoroughly acquainted with all the paths that led into Prussian terri tory away from the eyes of the watchful frontierguards. Many persons desirous of leaving Russia, particularly emigrants, were not supplied with the passports re quired by the Government before Russians are allowed to leave the country, and in these persons the Koulikvoskys found their victims. These persons would approach the Koulikvoskys and bargain with them for a safe conduct beyond Russian soil; and with his knowledge of the frontier, it was a com paratively easy undertaking for the vounger brother to get them safe away from Russian territory. Fugitives from justice, also, availed "themselves of Konlikvosky's knowl edge to escape from the officers of the law. The method followed by the brothers in the cases of persons desiring to cross the frontier was as follows: They would select as their victims only those who had good outfits and money. The others would be taken across the frontier in safety. Ambushed In Lonely Places. The victims, however, would be taken in charge by the younger brother, and singly they would be conducted along a narrow path through a dense forest. In the mean time the elder brother would hurry by a short route to a spot previously agreed on, and when the victim approached he would be attacked by his guide and the man who laid in ambush. The unfortunate man would be strangled, and then, to make their work sure, the brothers would beat in his Bkull withclubs. He would then be robbed of everything in his possession. At the outset the brothers carefully buried the bodies, but, as time went by, they, being undetected, became careless and shoved the bodies under the brushwood after stripping them. But this was not the only way they had ot securing victims. The wife ot the elder brother would flirt with strangers who came to Monki, and would make engagements for them to visit her at her home. She is a comely, buxom woman, and admirers would hasten at night to her house, only to meei death at the hands of husband" and his brother, who waited their coming. How the Villains Were Found Oat Among the last of the victims was a peasant who had sought shelter from in clement weather in their hut He fell asleep and the brothers attempted to strangle him. The man awoke and made a most desperate struggle lor his life, as his body showed. "While he was held so he could not escape, boiling water was poured over his head and face, and the murderers then succeeded in strangling him. The body was hidden beneath some straw in a stable, where it was accidentailv discov ered before the brothers had had time to carry it to the forest The finding: ot this body led to the discovery, of the five other bodies iu the woods. The woman .was taken into custody with the men, but she is kept entirely separate from them. All three have been subjected to a prolonged examination, but they re fuse to confess anything. EATING RAGS AND DIRT. Staff Which Beasts Would Brject Greedily Devoured in KnssU. St. Petebsbdkg, March 28. The com mittee formed for the purpose of providing relief for the famine-stricken peasants of this country, has reported that in many of the districts where the famine prevails, the children are so poorly nourished that they are too feeble to undertake the long walk to the schools where soup is doled out to those who make application. Being thus unable to obtain any food, the unfortunate children, driven desperate by the pangs of hunger, resort to the most unusual means of securing something to stay the gnawings of their stomachs. Such straits are they driven to by the famine that they eat the most unwholesome and disgusting things, some devouring that at which even beasts would revolt The children greedily ate rags, and these rags failing them, devoured quantities of earth. Manv teaohers in these districts are also in a famished condition. They have received no salary since last autumn. THE BUSINESS WORLD.

By to Economy the Pope Has Managed Save 5,000,000 Lire. Rome, March 28. It is stated on good authority that Pope Leo XIII., in anticipa tion of future difficulties which the Holy See may have to encounter, has deposited in a bank, to be paid to his successor, 6,000,000 lire which have been saved by the economies introduced at the Vatican. This amount is entirely independent of what the next Pope will find in the treasury of St Peter's Pence, and represents a special gift made by Leo XIII. to his successor. Many Catholics, more especially manu facturers and large employers of labor, have sent requests to the Holy See, asking that a clearer explanation than that given in the Pope's encyclical on the social question might be given on the question of wages. It is not probable, however, that the Pope will accede to this request, as he does not wish to occupy himself with questions ot practical application. The Pope has noti fied Archbishop Ireland that no doctrinal decision will be taken in regard to the scholastic question in the United States. FBAHCE'S DTNAMIIS 8CAB2.

The Coroner's jury, investigating into the deaths of the woman and four children whose bodies were found buried under the floor of Dinhani villa at Rain Hill, returned a verdict of willful murder against Deeming. Thev se verely criticised the notion ot the Rain Hill police, who, although everybody was sus- Elcious of Deeming, took no action against im. Bertha Deeming, a sister of the murdered woman, who is the wife of Albert Deeming, a brother of the murderer, testified as to the marriage of her sister Marie to Deeming. The marriage took place at St Patrick's Church, Tranmere, in February, 1880. Shortly after the wedding Deeming went to Melbourne, slating that he would send for his wife to join him there. He did so and nothing further was heard of them until last April when they returned to England with four children. In the opinion of the wit ness, her sister who was very much con cerned at what she described the "carry ings on" of her husband, had determined to bring matters to a crisis by taking her family to Rain HilL At this time Deem ing, under the alias of Williams, was courting Miss Mather, and the arrival of his wife with her four children, no doubt, inter fered with his plans.

One report cur rent in Parliamentary circles is that Dr. von Boetticher, Secretary of the Imperial Home Office and representative of the Chancellor, is about to resign the posts held by him in order to become Governor of Hes3e-Kassau. Dr. Miquel, Minister of Finance, who had an audience with the Rmperor yesterday, has been designated the future Vice President of the Prussian Ministry.

RIVAL 8EBVICES IN ONE CHURCH. ;rECIAI. TBLHOHAM TO THB DISFATCTt.l Clevelahd, March 28. New revelations follow the Paige failure, that have caused a tremendous sensation in local financial circles, and with good cause, since several Cleveland capitalists may be hard hit. Wi.ei David Paige, a brother of the cashier of the defunct Painsville Bank, contracted for certain work upon the New York aqueduct, it became necessary to secure some one to indorse his paper. He obtained the aid of John Huntington, a millionaire, and his brother-in-law. The latter readily indorsod a number of notes given by Paige,' Carey & Co. As far as known, all this paper Was for four months. Two years ago John Huntington, with shattered health, left Cleveland for Europe. He is now at Carlsbad and in a precarious condition. It was known by Huntington's family here that when the notes expired the indorsements by him were not re newed. In spite of the fact, renewed paper continued in circulation, and at last a cable dispatch was sent Huntington in quiring about the matter. He replied: "I have endorsed no paper since last April, ex cept certain notes held by Mr. Perkins, of the Mercantile National Bank." This was astonishing news, and the mem bers of the family and local bankers held a consultation this mornint Thousands of dollars' worth of Paige, Carey & Co. 's paper, bearing the indorsement of John Hunting ton, is held in this oitv alone. There was a partial record mad? to-day of f 235,000 worth in local banks. In Januarv suit was brought by the Cen tral National Bank against D. R. Paige and John Huntington for $7,307 57 on a promis sory note. The case attracted no attention, especially as it was settled out of court. The suit was based on a four months' note for $10,000 given by Paige, Carey & Co. on September 23, 1891, and was indorsed by D. R. Paige and John Huntington. Payments had been mode, reducing the total to 7,307 57, for which the bank sued. The money was raised and the note redeemed. Another conference was held here Mon day afternoon, to decide on some course of action. It is stated that telegrams were sent to Paige, demanding that the issue of notes be stopped, and also that he make a statement 'as to what amount of his paper was afloat. Several tele grams containing nothing definite have been received. It is probable that some one will leave Cleveland at once to see John Huntington at Carlsbad and ob tain a complete statement testifying to the signatnres on the notes. The paper held by Mr. Perkins, of the Mercantile Bank, amounts to $80,000. THE OHIO RIVER BATE WAR. The Police Interfere and Dra; the De posed Clergyman to Jail. London, March 28. A new rector of Trinity Church, South End, supported by the church officials, had discharged the curate, named Waller, but, regardless of dismissal, the Curate appeared in the church, as usual, yesterday, and began the service. The rector also proceeded to hold a service, and the contending services roused the anger of the congregation. The police were called in to remove Waller, but he fought so desperately that he had to be thrown, to the floor. A num ber of women and childern fain tea. The curate was dragged by the police to the vestry, from which he insisted upon walk ing to the police station in full clerical garb, being followed by a howling mob. He was committed on the charge ot brawling. All the Rules Broken by the JJIc; Four and the Pennsylvania Railroads. Chicago, March 28. In consequence of the passenger rate war between Chicago and Ohio river points, the Chicago, St. Paul and Kansas City Railroad has applied to Chair man Finlcy, of the Western Passenger As sociation, for authority to use the reduced rates as basing rates in selling tickets from St. Paul and Minneapolis. to Cincinnati and Louisville. This would reduce the rate between those points from $19 50 to $17 50. The Chairman has called for a vote of the members of the associa tion on this question. In the meantime, the Monon, the Big Four and the Pennsylvania lines have smashed the agreements by breaking all the rules ot the Chicago and Ohio River Association in the present prosecution of their little war. One of the results of this fight will be the reopening, April 1, of he hotel ticket offices in this city, whioh were abolished two or three years ago by agreement oi all the roads entering Chicago.

The Timet' Berlin correspondent says: "It is reported on good authority from St. Petersburg that the Czar has had a serious quarrel with his brother, the Grand Duke Valdimir, who has resigned all his offices, intending to live abroad.

Umbrella Makers Trying; to Come In Ont of the Rain of Competition. New York, March' 28. The manufact urers of parasols and umbrellas are forming a combination to "maintain prices." They have been holding conferences of late, and it is understood that they have nearly com pleted their organization. The main idea is to control the frame manufactures, and through them to govern the smaller manu facturers of umbrellas and parasols. There are three factories that, it is esti mated, supply fully 90 per cent of the um brella frames, and negotiations have already been started for the output of these factor ies. Another arrangement desired is not to increase the output. Kb rthwestern Stocks of Wheat. Minneapolis, March 28.
