THEIR TALE OF WOE.
Tbo Finance Committee Can't juet uee How to Pay tho ESTIMATE OF PAIGE. CAREY 5 CO. For Work, on tho Stone Bridge?Fifteen Thousand Dollars Almost line ami the Coniinit??iou J lit # None. Proposed to liel'uml the Loan. Some Very interesting Suggest ions. Mr. Jrpsnii sees uo Hope far Selling the Old lionilo. The Council committee on finance met hist night to wrestle with what " proved to be a very knotty, or, as -Mr. l'ollock put it, a very "naughty" question, beforo it was disposed of even temporarily. Yesterday was tho last day of August, and to-day Messrs. Puige, Carey & Co.. the contractors for the new Main (street bridge, will ask the City Engineer to prepare an estimato o( the amount of work done during August, and at tho Hiext Council meeting, which com cm on next Tuesday night, the Council will be expected to pay the amount of tho estimate. The work done by the bridgo contractors during August has been heavy compared with that done in oilier months, and tho estimate is 'expected to amount to between $15,000 and .fl'O.000. Paige, Carey & Co., notwithstanding the fact that they have been treated wiih extreme leniency hv the Stone, llridge Commission in the matter of extensions, bay that they must have their money io pay their men, and give dfe.u Hperilic reuson for this that liie Terminal company is paying its estimates in paper. The commission. composed of Messrs. V. }'. iJobbiuf, .1. K. llughew and i.runk 1'. .Jepson, which h.is charge of the sale of the bridge bonds unil the disbursement of the money. has only succeeded in selling, in all, $U),500 of the ?100,000 bonds ifsucd. and all that money has been eateli up by previous ?stiiuates, advertising bills und the like. This commission now iinds itselfwith the remainder of the bonds on its hands and no one to buy them ufteriult'crtisiug twice according to law, LAST NIGHT'S ilEKTINO. Last night's meeting of the committee on finance was heiJ for the purpose of ttcvisinx uavs and means for raising tlic money to pay the next estimate. Messrs. bobbins and .lepsoii, of the commission were present with a teport of their work since the loan was author* ized. Thev reported that by advertising twice they had sold SW,50U of the bonds, all at iiouie, ami thai they did not believe the remainder could be sold. They turned in a repi rt showing tho payment of the coupons duo Julv 1 for a year's interest on the bonds sol.!, ami the coupons and a statement of the business transacted. The first matter that received consideration was the question raised whether the commission could accept oilers for the bonds, if any were made, at any time except that stipulated in an advertisement that had been printed in the daily papers of Wheeling for thirty days. The members of the Commission were of the opinion that tliovcould not, ami among the members of the committee there was a difference of upinion. After Jung waiting, Solicitor llciilv came inland gave it as his opinion tfiat the bonds could only bo su!d to persons win; presented oius in iu romance witn lilt? Jul vert iscmeirt. That mutter settled. there was a discussion of the possibilities of selling the bonds. .Mr. Jepson said ho did not believe it would he possiblo to Hell any more of the bonds either ut home or abroad. Tho rate of interest was too low to make them desirable in the general market, while the prospect of being able to buv a six per cent electric light bond and in all probiihility a six per cent bridge bond in a few weeks, kent home buyers from taking them, lie said lie had received a letter from a New York investment banker offering eighty cents on the dollar for them. He had said to this gentleman that Wheeling had always dukeii care of her own bonds and that they could not be sold ut uny such price. NOT KEASSmiNO. In reply to this, Mr. .lepson hud re ceived a letter Muting that the money market had undergone very great changes within the juift year and that bond# that had been cold at a premium a year ago were now selling below par. Cleveland had been able to sell 4 per cent bunds at a good premium, but now hero percent bonds: barely brought par. This gentleman quoted numerous instances of cities and counties thathad been forced to raise the interest raUj, and wound up by saying tiiat Wheeling would be able to do nothing with a bond at a rate less than (? per cent. Mr. 15ailev thought it would bo advisable to send some good man to fco it' lie could liml a market for the bonds away from home. .Mr. Ilailey's suggest lldll ??W IIUI* iVitriucii.t< <>I ??..,? Mr. Dubbins suggested that a new ordinance be drawn, fixing the rate of interest at t> per cent, and submitted to the people to be voted upon. Mr. Maxwell did not think lucIi an ordinance would carry, ami said that many who luid voted for the otiier ordinance would . not vote for another one. Mr. Farrell agreed with Mr. Maxwell, and said he would vote and work against such an ordinance. Mr. Kreiter and Mr. Horstman said they did not believe it could be adopted. On that particular point there seemed to be a peat unanimitv of sentiment. Although there seemed to be no doubt in the minds of all present that a new loan ordinance with t) iter cent, as the rate of interest would be submitted to i he people finally, there was great disinclination to acknowledge it. Mr. Dobbins seoined to be the man of greatest resources, and he suggested that the bonds might be turned over to 1'age, Carey A Co. at their face value, ami that the difference between tljA amount ami the amount for wlnW raise, Carey & Uo. could ecu worn no made tip by Council. This eu^ostion seemed tn bo sufficient to pit around the law demanding that bonds bo sold at their face value, but the $1,000 that won estimated to bo necessary to make Paice, Carey & Co. whole could not b? found anywhere liaudv ami it wad dropped. NO WAY OCT OF IT. There seemed to be no way out of the hole except to order a new election, and it was suggested that Mr. Heillv prepare a new ordinance so that it might be passed at the next meeting of Council and submitted as soon as the time required by law for advertising had expired. While thhtwaa under discussion Mr. Maxwell suggested that another effort should bo made to sell the bonds on | hand, and made a motion that n corn| mi t tec of three, to include the chairI man, bo appointed to try and soil the bonds. Mr. Jepson suid ho did not think the sulo could be made except by the commission. Mr. Maxwoll stated that he hud not thought of usurping the (unctions of the commission, and changed his motion so that the committee would assist the commission in the Hale. Mr. Keilly suggested that while that committee was at work it would not he lor the best to liuve an ordinance for 6 per cent bonds under diheussion^becaune anyone who might be induced ordinarily to buy the 4$ pur cent bonds would not touch them when there was a prospect of gettiugli percent bonds in u tew weeks. Mr. Jift>son did not think there was t-. ? t _ ... . ..II II any u#e 111 trying 111 rtutrr m tin ij i?v? coiit bonds, and *uid the Uuiik of (lie Ohio Vallny would buv tint whole block ut U per rent, but Mr. Pollock unpointed Messrs. Furrell ami Maxwell on the committee of assistance with himself. The question was asked several times where the money wus to come from to pay the estimate about due, and it was suggested that it be borrowed from one oi ttie bunks. Mr. Maxwell's pet restraining ordinance came up, and stopped any such hclieme us that. Mr. tarrell said he had thought of borrowing from the Gas and Water Boards temporarily. WILL MEET AOAIX MONDAY. The committee finally adjourned to meet next Monday night, at which time the sub-committee on assistance will report the results of its labors, and the finance committee will decide whether to scud it abroad to seek a market for the bonds. Anion# the interesting thimrs that came out in the meeting wus a statement by Mr. Jeps??n that the fact that Wheeling wus in West.Virginia injured her credit. The uction of the United Suites authorities in holding West Virginia's ehure of the direct tax refund because of her aliened indebtedness to VS~....K,.. l..?l nlliinf mmn liur credit. On several occasions often of lunula had been refilled fcimply because the name Virginia was attached to them. Olhur Committor* Meet.

SHOES WERE CHEAP. The Strange Storlos told of Persistent Robberies. THREE YOUNG THIEVES IN JAIL And an Italian out on Ball?The Way Dcvine't* Shoe Store wan Robbed with Regularity-LoH of People seemed to be on to the Snap. The robbery some time oeo of James Dcvine'a shoo atoro, on Main street, and the arrest of several people on sua. picion, have been chronicled in the InTELMOKNcniL The police have been at work on the case for several days, and they have finally run down the parties they have been looking for. James Itichards, aged 15, was arrested YAftterilav hv Officer Lukens at his home while lie was attempting to escape oyer a roof in the rear. He was taken to the city buildiug and put through a rigid examination by tho Chief. He admit* led that he had stolen seven pairs of shoe* from Dovine's shoe store, being I accompanied at the time by a colored boy of ubont his own age, named Wili liutii Graham. Thev hid the shoes under the Pewiky platform, and afterj ward got them, a pair or two at a time, and traded or gave them away. To all the perrons who got shoes from hiin he I savs he stated that he had stolen them, J ami, they accompanied him to the hiding place to get them. One pair was given to Mike Pietro, an Italian, for $1; one pair was traded to Harry Wier for a pair of trousers. One pair Kiclmrds wore himself, another he sold to Bert Sylvia for SI, another to a stranue colored man. One pair Grahutn kept, and one pair was left under tho platform. itichards said he knew of a hundred or more parties going into Devine's store at night ami getting shoes. As fur hack as last winter people went there and got gum boots, shoes etc. In fact, he said, all the boot blacks iu town were getting shoes from that store whenever they wanted them. About 11 a. in. Chief Delbrngge found Pietront the boarding house on the corner of Water anil Twelfth streets, lie admitted that he had bought a pair of shoes from Richards, and that he went to the I'ewiky deuot to get them, where Richards took the shoes from beneath the platform. He paid him ^1 lor them. Richards named Charles Sweeney, a boy of fifteen who has a bad reputation, and one Hubert Mi-Kirov, who has at times worked at Dovine's store, as having been engaged in stealing there. Otticer Herbert arrested Sweeney about noon, and Chiof Delbrugge questioned him. He admitted that he had been in the Devine store about the time of the lirat snow in December, when Richards took several pairs of gum boots. Richards took the boots and handed them out to McElroy, who was waiting outside, telling him to hold them till he got out. Sweeney said a boy bv the name of Hirst told him lie was going to Devine's and get a pair of shoes. He met Hirst two days later wearing a pair of new shoes. * This was some time in January. Ait/.,,* > nVliick Ottin>r Lukens ar rested Harry Wier. Wier told Capt. Delbrugge lie had traded a pair of light second-hand pants to Richards for I the shoes, but they were too small for him and he presented theJi to Rich I Beater. lie said he went to the depot with Kichards to get the shoes, but did not see whero ho got them. Kichards told him he was going away and wanted the pantaloons. Wier lives in Adrian, .Mich., but lias been here about a month, studying bookkeeping. Richard*, Sweeney, Wier and Piotro were taken before" Squire Arkle, who committed the three boys to iail in default of bail. Pietro found a bondsman, and was released. ^ q u i c iuTyi i i:co v i: n i: d. Vhlunblu Diamond* Stolnn In April Kccovercil Ilcrr. Ijist April a Pittsburgh jeweler received a call from a well known fast woman of that city, who had been a liberal purchaser and prompt payer, who said she wanted to have her photograph taken, and would like to have some diamonds to wear. She borrowed a pair of ear rings valued at $350 and a ring worth $250. That was tho last the ' < m i jeweler saw 01 uer mini mat. iuhuu She left Pittsburgh and went to Detroit, where the jeweler followed her, only to find alio had gone to another eiiy. He has been trying to get hack lain diamonds ever since. Yesterday he learned that the woman wan in un'Koffstreet house here, and ho came down last evoiiing. Chief Delbrugue located the woman, who is called Minnie something, and she said she had pawned the diamonds for $75 and had not money enough to redeem them. Capt. l)ell">rugge ami the owner of the stones took the pawn ticket and got hack the jewels, and the man left rejoicing. FUNNY AS A FAKCE.A I)r??nry "Drnnm" at the Opern Houno Lnit Night. "Custer," the so-called drama given at the Opera House, is mi generis. There is reason for rejoicing in that. An auditor sitting through it without a descriptive program me would be at a loss to know whether it was a farce, a comedy or a nightmare. Tho audience was small, anil it was hard to tell which seemed most ashamed of themselves, the actors, the anditore or the musicians, four or five of whom had to go on the stage and act a "full brass band." The plav could not ho redeemed by tho best acting, and the acting would make a burlesque of tho finest drama. Unfortunately it is booked for this evening again. Tom Mwjrer."
