Work on the county hospital was Btoppcd when the Building Construc tion's Employers' association ordered n lockout of workmen. One thousand of the men out will return to work If the contractor obeys the county board This action was practically assured following the Intervention of the county commissioners. The matter was brought before the county board in a letter from the union men and an effort on the part of the contractors to secure an ex tension of time In which to complete the hospital was made. Simon O'Don nell, president of the Building Trades council, represented the men, and John Orlinths, whose Arm holds the contract for tho hospital, represented the employers. "There is no strike at the county hospital," said President O'Donnell. "It is an entirely different proposition from a Btrlke. We are hero to OBk you to resume the work by enforcing your contract with tho builders. The employers should be big and broad enough to allow the work to go on when the health and welfare of the citizens depend upon tho speedy com' nletlon of this work." "There has been a strike on tho hospital for six weeks on the part oM pipe coverers," answered Mr. Grimms, "and this has held up the entire con struction. It Is an outrage for them to hold up the Inside work liko this and block the whole business." "You can put In your pipe covers any time," answered Mr. O'Donnell. Commissioner Maloney presented a resolution ordering tho "resumption of work ns quickly ns possible," which was passed. Mayor Harrison In a letter to the employers ordered them not to permit any labor troubles to interfere with the construction of the Indiana Btreet bridge. He notified tho association that its act constituted an abandonment of contract. His letter says: "I am Informed that recently, on order of your association, work on the Indiana street bridge across tho Chicago river under contract with the Strobel Steel Construction company was discontinued. There being no grievance against the city nor con tention of any character between it and tiny of Its employes, such an act constitutes an abandonment of con tract. "Jn the present controversy the con struction of bridges of very great' value and Importance to the public is being Interfered with, and I would request that such action bo taken ns will Immediately exempt all public work from interference by your body." TILDEN IS A PRINCE. Delnvan, Wis., Juno 21. This story tells how n boy redeemed tho promise mado twenty-flvo years ago. At that time a circus had come to Delnvan, Wis., there worn clowns and ncrobnts, nnd lions and tigers, nnd O, Jubt overy thing. And It had gono without his seeing It! Tho boy left Delnvnn, but ho prom ised that some day ho'd come back nnd he'd give his friends such n cir cus that they'd never forget; he'd buy up tho town of Delavnn, and ho'd show the children all tho clowns nnd funny things thoy could look nt In ono day. And there would bo airships, too. Edward Tilden, Chlcngo packer, to day fulfilled tho promlso ho had made thirty years ago when n boy. Five thousnnd men, women, nnd children came to tho clrctu and picnic ho gavo on tho shores of Delavnn lako. Tho guests began to arrlvo nt day break. Timid children camo hand In hand, farmers camn In from neighbor towns bringing their flockB. At 10 o'clock the guests had all arrived anil shook hands with Mr. and Mrs. Tll den. The grovo was pnrked with 1,000 nutos nnd buggies. Then, while everybody hold their breath, Jimmy Ward shot away up In to tho air In a Curtlss biplane and stayed there for twenty minutes, nnd tho picnic was on, There were games for tho children nnd prizes for tho winners. There was n bnnd of twenty pieces, nnd acrobats and vaudeville per formers from Milwaukee and Chica go, There was a dinner nt which MbbbbbmIbVV'!BbW everybody Joined In singing "On, Wisconsin." And then In the Into nttcrnoon, there wns n dance n renl dunce on the wnxed floor of the dining room. It Is estimated It cost Mr. Tllden nt least $10,000 to keep his promise. The picnic, hereafter, Is to be an annual event, held on the 21st of June. Mr. TUdcn's birthday. KAOLETM. The city forester must go. What has Alderman Bcllfuss ever done for his constituents? Judge John It. Cnverly has tho pub- lie with him In the common-sense views he expresses from tho bench. It dors not hurt n Judge to Bhow hu manity to the downtrodden. A South Side clothier has a curious sign In his window. He offers $10 re ward to the first man who cnnatinme the ten congressmen from Chicago. Such Is fame In a large city. With aldermen In office for four years, the telephone company would have a sure monopoly. Washington, D. C, June 24. Sen ator Lewis and George E. Brennan, were nt tho white house yesterday afternoon urging the selection of Ed ward N. Hurley of Chicago for comp troller of the currency. Mr. Hurley Is n manufacturer and also the presi dent of a bank nt Whcnton. Mr. Hurley raised $40,000 for tho expenses of the Wilson campaign and performed ..other conspicuous party service. In indorsing him Scnntor Lewis spoke ob a personal friend of Mr. Hurley and also In behalf of a considerable contingent of the Hearst Harrison democracy. Mr. Brennan voiced the preferences of the Sullivan faction. North Joke. Side elevated service is a If Chicago must havo a city forester let us have one who is good tempered. Firo the fellow now in the Job. Bent Bellfuss, the father of the city forester ordinance. Judgo Edward Osgood Brown of the Appellate Court appears to have the Inside track for that Chicago Federal Judgeship. My, what a grand thing It Is to bo an alderman. Four years of tho Job and the Telephone Trust still doln'tj business. It the "home rule," demanded by Chicago aldermen Is the Phone Rule" tho City Council has been handing to the people, then Chicago does not want any more of It. If the people of Chicago are given the referendum and the right to vote on phono franchises, they will then havo tho kind of "home rule" they want. ' How about those gum and weighing machine! on the elevated platforms? The city council ordered them off but they are still In evidence. Twenty-six applicants for the posi tion of assistant county attorney took tho first part of the Civil Service ex amination for that position Monday. James S. Hopkins, tho well known lawyer, talked of for the Circuit bench, would mako an excellent Pro bate Judgo to succeed Judge Cutting. The "blue print" graft at the city ball, according to a council commit tee, foots up over $5,000 a year. The city should have a blue print plant of It own. Taxes will be 75 per cent higher next year, thanks to the aldermen who bellevo In soaking tho public. There is still a little grass and somo trees left In Lincoln Park. These will be removed In time to make room for more auto speedways.

A merger of tho two companies Into one operating system Is contemplated, and if realized will mean the end of two separate lines within the city. The combine, it Is declared, will mean tho abolition of the automatic system and the taking over of Its subscribers by tho Bell company, This was announced following an attempt to effect the revision of tho telephono ordinance,, which at present prohibits tho amalgamation of the Il linois company with any other locally operated concern, It has the old of several aldermen In this new move. Should the Trust be successful Chi cago will be at Its mercy forever. Owing to the belief that the Instru ments nnd plant operated by the au tomatic company could not bo used by tho purchasing company, rumor has It that tho purchase of tho or ganization Is mainly for tho purpose of overcoming competition and estab lishing a universal telephone system in Chlcngo. Because of a clause In tho ordlnftnco pnsscd in 1899, prohibiting tho sale of tho company to any telephono cor poration operating In the city, It Is Imposslblo without legislation to er feet the sale. Tho step to overcome this obstacle was taken when an amendment to the prcsont ordlnanco was presented to tho gas, oil and electric light commit tee of tho city council. Tho ordlnanco provides that If the company makes any agreement "which would tend to mnko competition Inoperative" the frnnchlso would bo forfeited. This clause Is eliminated In the proposed amendment. Alderman Charles E. Mcrrlam urged tho commltteo to pro ceed with caution In taking action. "In enso the automatic company disposes of Its properties to the Chi cago Telephone company," ho said, "tho latter concern probably will add to its capitalization $5,000,000 or $6, 000,000, which amount would repre sent the purchase price," WARD BOUNDARIES.

Sanitary District of Chicago. President, Thomas A. Smytb, Clerk, John McGlllcn. Treasurer, John A. McCormlck. Trustees: Thomas A. Smyth, James M. Dalley, Charles E. Rending, Edward Kane, Paul A. Hazard, Fred D. Brelt, Thomas" M. Sullivan, Gcorgo W. Paullln, Wallaco G. Clark. Steps toward repairing some of tho defects found by the legislative in vestigating commltee In ono of tho walls of the sanitary canal at Jollet have been taken by tho Bnnltnry dis trict trustees. Parts of the wall, where disintegration was found, are being strengthened and Bovernl holes found above the frost line are being filled. No Immediate steps will be taken to rebuild the wall entirely, Inasmuch ns Its Condition is not regarded as dangerous. Concerning the legisla tive committee's report, Lyman E, Coolcy, consulting engineer for tho sanitary district said: "The report of the committee Indi cates that thcro Is no Immediate danger, so that Immediate replace ment of tho wall does not appear necessary. Tho report docs Indicate, however, that eventually tho walls will havo to be rebuilt. The fault lies In the material used. Poor concrete "In view of the commltteo's re port, which Indicates that there Is no Immediate danger If such detects as aro pointed out nro remedied tem porarily. I have suggested to tho board that such repair work be done and further rebuilding wait for a year or two. My reason Is that in the course of a, year or two, after certain suits In tho federal courts arb dis posed of, work on the deep water way plan may be begun. Working out of that plan will require certain changes in the construction and loca tion of tho walls, so that, as a matter of fact, there would be required a now set of walls through the Jollet dis trict. Therefore, with tho absence of Immediate danger as Indicated In the committee's report, tho work of re building the walls may safely wait until that time. "Definite plans along this line will havo to wait further action by the legislature in tho way of investigat ing. The sanitary district probably will seek an appropriation to take care of such further Investigation as appears necessary. The sanitary dis trict trustees are willing to do every thing asked for by the legislative com mittee In the way of making tho walls safe." Four companies submitted bids to the sanitary district for the excava tion of section seven and eight of the Calumet Sag channel. The sections extend from Blue Island south to Worth. Tho bids wore referred to the com mittee on engineering. Tho bidders wcro Green & Sons Co. of Chicago; T. W. KeyB of La Salle, 111.; Byrne Brothers Dredging and Engineering compnny of Chicago, and tho Great Lakes Dredge nnd Dock company sof Chicago.

The Cabaret Is arousing national attention. Tho tremendous growth of wealth, with Its consequent increase in the number of "Idle rich. Is producing a class of criminals In' this country almost faster than the police can cope with It, according to Representative Borland of Missouri, who addressed the convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Mr. Borland declared that the "Idle rich" set a pernicious example In their search for amusement and aroused a desire of emulation In the minds of persons of small means. The result of such an example, he said, was to tempt poorer folk Into Indis cretions and crime to obtain money with which to gratify newly acquired tastes. The cabaret show he declared to be one of the main causes for the spread of the social evil. f ; -. V-i; liLu.&fi tjjAi ek&d-t'.;-'-ifj t&aisff. it?'4 . iii
