I Well Known Former Wheeling Man j.
Die* at the Weetuo Aeyluni. Q
Frank Johnson, ex-Superintendent of
ilails at the Wheeling postofflce, died
ast evening it the Slate Hospital for the ,
nsane at Weaton. Mr. Johnaon waa for
rears an attache of the postofllce, and
raa one of the moat efficient men ever r
lonnected with it. Ho waa also a pro- t
ninent Republican politician, for yean t
i valued member of the Connty Committee
and for gome time ita chairman,
ind when hie condition required hia 1
:onfinement in the Weaton boepital, the c
announcement of that fact canned a
general feeling of surprise and horror, t
After having been an inniale of the t
hospital for some time, he was din- i
charged as cured. He came home, ap- i
parently in good condition, mentally I
?nd physically, but it waa not long until I
symptomaof his malady returned, and i
nobody realized thissooner than he.
The last accounts received here were i
of a hope-inspiring character. List <
night, however, G. Mendel A Co., the I
undertakers, received a telegram an- '
nouncing his death. It is presumed I
from this that the body will be sent here
to-day for burial, although no details of I
the arrangements were given.
Mr. Johnson's sad death will be sincerely
mourned by a host of friends who :
became warmly attachod to him on account
of his genial disposition, bright i
intelligence and other good qualitiea ol
mind and heart before the darkening of
liis intellect, and his relatives will have
the deepest sympathy of the whole community.

An Italian Catchen a Live Wire and 1b Seriously

and supposing, naturally enough, that

he took bold of the wire to lift it over
his head. The current was not off, and
he could not let go of the wire.
At once a dense, dark smoke curled up
from each band, and soon sparks of lire
shot out from the wires. Boscia writhed
I in agony and screamed for aid.
A number of people saw his awful

of a live wire made no movement to re*

as if fascinated by the sickening ccene.
Bob Fisher, a young employe of Bslfz,

predicament of tne man, *and getting a
long wooden pole, he succeeded after
several efforts in prying Boscia'a hands
loose. The. Italian was suffering intensely,
and fell unconscious as soon as
his hands were off the wire. He was
carried into a shanty near, and Dr.
Charley Frisaoll was summoned and did
what he could to relieve the sufferer,
and he was afterwards removed to the

hands were burned to a crisp clear to

Lest evening a wild rumor was in circulation
that a man had cut his throat
in the barber shop of the Hotel Beliler.
I A reporter found it very hard to get at
' the facts in the matter, but finally found
| an eye witness, who told the story. He
said a stranger, apparently sober, but
very nervous, came in the shop and said
ho had no money and would like to
shave himself. Hnyder, the proprietor,
nave him permission. He lathered hie
face, made a pass or two with the razor,
and then, apparently intentionally,
clashed at his necK, cutting a long gash.
It was a second before.he bled; then
the blood gushed all over him, making
him a sickening spectacle.
Ho criticized tho dullness of the razor,
and wanted to stropvit, but 8nyder refused
to let him. and getting him in the
chair, fixed up the cut the best he could.
The man then left, aa unconcerned as l!
he had scratched his neck with a pin.

When the cellar of the Bon Ton store,
where the fire of Wednesday morning
originated, was examined by the insurance
men, it was found to bo piled full
of waste paper, boxes and other rubbiBh.
It is a well known fact that half of the
cellars of business houses in town are in
similarly dangerous condition. Profiting
by Mr. Whit's experience, quite a number
of business firms had men at work
yesterday cleaning out their cellars.
Said a prominent insurance man: '
"The condition of many cellars in
Wheeling is an invitation for a disns- 1
troua fire. Many men, when their at- ;
tention is called to tho matter, will of i
course clean out their cellars as a matter I
of safety, but there aro others so indif- i
ferent to the really serious danger, that I
it will be necessary for the insurance
interest to protect itself. The Board of I
Underwriters will therefore pass a reso- |
lution refuting to insure establishments j
which have cellars in bad condition, i
and to enforce the rule, we will require i
inspections to be made at reasonable in- '
(Jlty Flutmces.
The Council Committee on Financo j

contained, for the first three months of i
the year, $7,534 Gl. $0,300, the amount t
tsked by the Board, was appropriated, r
and so recommended to Council. (
The report of tho commissioners of t
the 10 30 loan was taken up. It showed b
that 170 coupons had been paid and
fourteen bonds of $500 each. Their bill
for $0155 was ordered paid.

Very little sugar is being sold raw for
mraediate delivery, merchants taking
>nly what they are sure they can sell
jefore the first. Wholesale bouses have
rery little on bands, but all have placed
leavy orders through the brokers.

Inquiry among candy makers elicited
the statement that there will probably
be no reduction in tho price of candies
on account ;of the reduction in sugar.
The pieces may bo made larger and candy
will be purer and more sugar used and
less of other things.
As to whether sugar in largo quantities
is a sale investment, there is some
doubt. The highest authorities say that
sugur will remain cheap, but there are c
great many who think sugar will soon
find higher prices than those that pre
vail alter April 1. The argument of '

There will be much more sugar usee

be made much less sparingly, and peo

Will Not Take Chnrgo UnUl the Next Fire,
i AppraliemenU.
The American Flint Gloss Company
baa decided not to begin operations before
the beginning of the next fire. A
meeting of those interested in the new
corporation was held in Pittsburgh
Wednesday, and the plans as they have
progressed so far were discussed. A
number of committees were sent out in
different directions for the purpoBe ol
appraising the properties to be purchased
by the new company. In connection
with making the appraisements,
thene committees made an examination
of the character and amount of business
done by each firm interested during the
yoar, and the result of many of these examiuationd
were reported. They showed
the factories to be in excellent condition
and altogether satisfactory to the investors.
Jn a few days other committees will
je sent out to examine the titles to the
properties involved. It is intended to
purchase the factories outright, and it is
Jcsired to make sure of the titles being
ill right. This will require several
ireekb' additional work, and it is thought
t would be impossible to get the concern
n shape to begin operations before the
atter part ef June, and for that reason
t was thought beat not to make the
iffort until the ne*t fire.

1 Or Oat of the Ordinar/ City Revenues Thn
| the Klectrlo Light Shall be Fald Fort
The question is being agitated in an
out oi me iiiecinc .Ligni uommisaioc
' bow shall the city's proposed plant b
paid for? At firet the sole idea seemo
| to 1)3 that another city loan would c
i course be necessary. Lately, howevei
I the idoa seems to be gaining fuvor tht
* if it is possible, it will be b^st to avol
i issuing bonds.
' The question is, how ? This difficult
) there nave been several suggestion
> upon. One of thess was to arrange t
pay the cost in two or three annual it
f btalments. The interest it would the
t be necessary to pay, however, woul
make that plan no better than a shor
time loan.
It is now suggeeted that tho ordinar
revenues of the city for the year will a
ford ample xneaus for the electric ligl
plant, if the money usually set aside fc
1 the use of the Board of Public Works i
devoted to this purpose.
t The new lighting system is pre-em
nently for the benelit of the whole citj
u and if the money were so used no oe
ward or section could complain that ai
other were getting a lion's ebare of th
_ funite. The Board would still use th
ten-cent levy fund on unimprove
streets and its contingent fund for net
'? essary work, and those who favor th
I plan maintain that there is no preesin
need for any work that would be pai
, for from the fifty-cent levy, or at lcai
i that no such work is at all important i
compared to the electric lights.
