The Wool 0 bowers.?Yesterda
morning the committee appointed at ill
wool growers' convention to visit Stet
benville and ascertain what inducement
would be otTered there to secure the loc:
tion of the proposed wool house, left fc
that city on the i! o'clock train. Th
committee consiatedof the following gei
tleman : John Faris, Peter Crow, J. 1
Whitham, of Went Virginia, and Iaaa
Slier?, Jos. Love and Uriah Shippj (
Ohio. The other gentlemen in attendant
upon the convention left for their homei
The committee found in Steubenvill
two capacioua buildings, nuitnble for ill
storing of !wool, which they were inforu
ed could he secured for the purposi
Owing to the absence of the owners of ill
buildings, however, no information coul
be obtained as to the terms upon whic
said buildings could be leased. The con:
mittee separated at Steubenville.and th
West Virginia delegation returned hom
on the afternoon train.
The Superintendent and Treasurer, t(
gether with the Board of Directors, wh
were elected on Thursday night, wil
after deciding upon the locatioi
receive proposals and lease a huildin
suitable for the purpose named. Th
names of the oIlicerH and directora ar
for the present withheld, but will li
made puolic after the location of th
store house in decided upon.
The object of establishing a wool houe
ia simply to accommodate those farmer
who desire to dispose of their wool di
rectly to the manufacturer, and thu
secure the profit which would otherwia
pass into the hands of the specula
tors. We are inlormed by
prominent wool grower of Ohi
county that on Thuraday morning th
convention wan almost unanimous i
preferring Wheeling to Steubenville a
the point where the wool house shoul
he located. No inducements were oflere
by our citizens,however, and a committe

upon the convention, and after repri
nenting the superior railroad facilities c
Hteubcnvillcj stated that two buildings i
that city, suitable for storing the woo
could be secured at very reasonable ratei
A committee was thereupon appointei
to visit Steubenville, and did so, ns a
ready stated. A majority of the'Boar
of Directors, we understand, now favo
Steubenville, and in all probability th
wool house will be located in that city.

Mr. Hanson uiored the adoption of the
resolution, and the motion was seconded
by Mr. Horkheimer.
Dr. Jepnon. Health Officer, was called
uiton for information, and stated that
after his experience of two years with
hogs and two yeaTs without hogs, he was
prepared to say that the sanitary condition
of the city was much better without

^ An ordinance submitted b^Mr. Bentz,
g. and similar to the old ordfnance under
which hogs were allowed to run at large,
n was read by the clerk.

was lost by the lollowing vote:

3j Having been passed by a majority vote
r. only, the ordinance will lay over until
the" next meeting.
Upon motion of Iir. Logan, the garbage
y ordinance was then taken up. The ordie
nance is the same as before, with the ex*
i- cepuon mm me contractors win i?e reis
quired to give bond (or the faithful peri
formance of their duty, and that the disir
tricts are changed somewhat. The new

:e garbage collectors the privilege of dis?.
posing of suoli quantities of garbage as
e may Iks required to feed hogs or cattle by

No Clue.?As yet there is no clue to
? the parlies who entered the house of
I' Itev. S. B. Barnitz, on 10th street, and
? took from his pantry and kitchen almost
' everything of value. The robbery took
J,* place some two weeks ago, and was kept
* quiet, hoping thereby to get tho police on
'? the track of tho thieves. Capt. Kipley
1. and his men have worked diligently to
'* bring to justice tho miscreants who have
k. been burglarising many houses in Kast
Wheeling, but up to this time without
success. Tho robbers entered Mr. Barr
nits'* house by forcing open a window in
* the kitchen and then the kitchen door.
? Thejr took two good woolen shawls be
longing to the girl, nearly all the tin?
war*, many dishes, cooking utensils,
towels, all the groceries in the house, Ac.
' As friends in the East had just remem"
be red Mr. Barnitzby a lotol nice home
made sausages, <&c., from York county,
* and as he had also just purchased grocerJ
iea, the loss Is quite a heavy one.

tion from the Scripture**, after which <
Kev. 0. P. Miller offered prayer. Sever- i
al other* present offered prayer, and i
several hymns were aung, after which I
Messrs. Hall. McMasters, Keddick and I

evening. i
A meeting for men only will he held at i

the large number of ladies present, many l
of the sterner sex were unable to get in*
side the building. I
Meetings will l>e held at Peterson's i
Hall ami Laramie's Hall to-morrow i
afternoon. i
Fourth Slrttl M, E. Church.?Not with- 1
standing the inclemency of the weather, i
quite a large audience assembled at this i
church last night. The meeting
was led by Mr. Uilbert McMaster,
who introduced Mr. K. O. Cracraft as i
the first speaker of the evening,
who made an eloquent address,
giving his reasons why he is so much in- .
terested in the cause of temperance, and ,
urging all young men to come and sign
the pledge, and not be afraid of the jeers ,
of their companions. Mr. Samuel B.
McColloch read a letter from Captain
Jack in reply to one from Mr. McCol- ,
loch. Dr. Wright (better known as the
ink peddler) spoke for a few
moments, but owing to his hav- .
ing been speaking constantly for
some time past, could not speak at any
length. Mr. D.E.Hall related some of his ,
experience as a drinker and in his in- j
tense style urged all to sign the pledge .
and unite with the Murphy army. Mr. j
J. B. Cassaday addressed "the meeting, ,
relating some experience, and the evils ,
attending the use of ardent spirits. Short
addresses were made by Messrs. Clark, j
Hamilton and Dr. Reiley.

ChujJine Strert M. E, Church.?A large \
and enthusiastic temperance mans meet- ,
ing wan held at the Chapline Street M. E.
Church last night by the National ChriHtian
Temperance Union of the Sixth j
Ward. A very able and eloquent address
was delivered by Mr. Marshall, of Belmont
Co., Ohio, and his life portrayal of
hit* own experience waa*deeply impressive.
Stirring addresses were made by (
| Mr. Davis, of Ohio, Mr. T. Laramie, of
this city, and Messra. Dowler and Cunningham,
officers of the Association. ,
Forty-one signers to the pledge were se- ,
[cured. The meetings at Chapline Street
j are carried on with a vim and energy and
are productive of great good. Mr. Jan.
Cunningham, jr., is an earnest worker,
1 and in fact all the officers are entitled to <
j great credit. The society is poor finan|
cially and arc not able to hire brilliant
orators, but they use their own talent, 5
| and very successfully at that.
j The Furbish Company.?Our people (
1 will this afternoon and evening have an
j opportunity, thanks to Manager Hamil- ,
[ton,of witnessing Mr.Henry J. Byron's
very successful comedy, entitled "Our J
Hoys," which will be presented by the famous
Furbish Fifth Avenue combina- -
tion. Newspaper readers generally are ]
aware that "Our Boys" has had an almost
unprecedented run in London, New York
and Philadelphia, In London it held the
boards for over COO consecutive nights,
ami in Philadelphia, where it run 400 ]
night*, it was the great attraction during
the Centennial Exhibition. Mr
Furbish'* company,as our. citizens well i
know, has no superior anywhere. It i

Messrs. John MLube, H. K. List,

requeBt us to announce that there will be
la meeting held at the City Hall this '
(Saturday) evening, at 7 o'clock, in the
j interest of the Tuscarawas Valley Kailrond.
! The capitalists, manufacturers and the
I business men of the city generally are
earnestly invited to attend. This im- '
jportant road will not be built unless 1
$50,000 more of such stock is raised, and j
j the quota of Wheeling lacks yet more
I than $25,000. Come and hear the report
of a committee who have passed over the
| part of the road already built and were '
present at the Cleveland meeting. This '
road should not fail for the want of the
'$25,000yet required of Wheeling.
In Ohio committees are at work pro- :
curing subscriptions, but are meeting
with poor success, having procured about
$175,000, leaving wanting on that side of ?
the river also $25,000.
Do not fail to come. Kemember the
time and place, City Hall, to-night, at 7 t
