In case th< paving of Twelfth utreet with brick, foi Instance. should be commenced at at 1 early date by th board of public works the railway company will lay down Iti line upon that street coincident wltl the pavlnp. so that there will be no sub sequent disturbance of the pavlnf upon their account, and, ok a mattei of course, will pave between the rail; and one foot each side thereof, whlcl xrtll ltxhlen the burden upon the eitj to that extent and allor/ the money o the city to ro that much farther.

There englneei Brown explained the course of the pro posed line as running north alonf South street, through the centre there of. to the Intersection of Pourteentl treet. At the corner of Fourteentl street the line curves to the west lnt< the centre of Fourteenth street. am runs west along that street to the cor tier of Water street, where It curves ti the north and parallels the track o n iv jc- Kv tt R.

Wtte street Is not l"vel between Twelfth an< - Fourteenth, but inclines at varylni . degrees toward the river, with a rls< Jong In of the Stamm House. One or two members of the commit tee thought nt first that to run a rail way track along the west of the streo | would l>e In the nature of a permanen - injury to the street.but engineer Browi y - conclusively showed that the contrar: would be the case. Engineer Browi said that if the proposed right wa granted the track would be laid dowi so that the west mil would be upon th* same level and the space between tin *alls nnd for a foot on each side o iiivml with fire hrlck.

The track takes the centre o the street, from "Water to Twelfth, an. will btt paved between the rails and to B? one foot on each side, as heretofor stated. At the corner of Chaptim |V street. on? track runs south to Six teentli street, where It connects, at th Soldier's monument, with the existing t- track of the company. The other tracl p runs from Chapllne and Twelfth street T;> east on Twelfth to Koff. and theno H sooth on EofT to Sixteenth, where I Ej turns Into Sixteenth, and runs thenc [; east to McCulloch and Fifteenth street where both tracks leave the street, a k-:. the existing single track does now. an< !> follows the alley to the bend in McCul iy loch street boy out! the stock yard* pi Alonfi this alley the second track wll be east of the present track and bet fcy ween It and the track of the B. & 0 Co.. this in no way discommoding an] i one and In no manner Interfering witj I travel or private Interests.

Nature's inexorable laws have entered your peaceful and happy abode and filled your hearts and souls with sadness and mourning. Hut. 'while the eurth remnlneth.' says God. 'seed time nnd harvest, cold nnd heat, summer and winter, day and night shall not cease." And even so in the human life as in nature. there will be Joy nnd affliction, smiles nnd tears, light and shade. This has been the course from the beginning. Many have drained the cup of death and many still will drink It. There Is nothing lasting In this world, our possessions ore borrowed from nature, and In due time we must return them to nature, and all lamentations nnd mourn In* avail u? naught. Thuf win eartn return unto earth whence It came, and the spirit return unto (Sod. who pave It.

The location e of the church Is also a happy one, from p the fact that it Is at the Junction of the f Bethany and National turnpike mads. In close proximity Is also the Wheeling & Kim Grove railroad, so that Its bcau? tiful appearance will be admired by many outside of the residents of suburr ban Wheeling. i The church Is not very large, but Is r compact In Its beauty. The style of s architecture Is French Romanesque, t? and in appearance It resembles the . Garfield monument at Cleveland and is a e very impressive structure.

Wheeling's Prominent Young Pan?o. (From it recent photograph by O'Neill.) Foremost In the ranks of West Virginia's bassoa will bo found Henry W. Hughes, further than that it were not wise t?? predict, because the limitation only will be ***t by the ambition or the Inclination^ the pfrwefctor of this magnificent voice. Mr. Hughes Is the son of Admiral Aaron Hughe*. U. 8. N., anil, until a few years ago. was at home in \\ aahlngton City, h is voice Is Inherited, but its development Is duetto thecarofui training and handling or Dr. E. s. Kimball, of Washington. Dr. Kimball stand* pre-eminent among voice builders, and to be able to say "I have studied with Dr. fi. S. Kimball." Is now a passport to recognition nnd onrly hearing with celebrated and exclusive European teachers, and anywhere in this country Is the highest testimonial to secure an engagement, and to be deserving of this compliment is appreciated by Musical Wheeling. Mr. Hughes is the soln bass of the First Presbyterian church quartette choir, and of the Oratorio Society. Ills name is an attraction on any programme; hi* stage presence and fin*- voice, magnetically draw any audience. Everybody, musician and layman, is an admirer because of his charming personality nnd perfect breeding, never absent, whether In Musical Bohemia or "etiquette clad" drawing room. The pleasure his voice will offer is always modestly granted, whether for concert, oratorio or opera. In the las*, named Mr. Hughes made a decided hit in Washington City, taking a I'MiMIIR pari in innuii/. mr <>"-?" ?time "plece-de resistance" of "The R??stonlans." and he made a decided hit in Wheeling: wh-n, at short notice. he tilled thp place of Carl Dufft. in a leading Oratorio Quartette, and filled It meriToriousIv. receiving the sincere compliments of Mr. .1. H. McKlnlcy. \ singer considered compatible on h "Calve" programme. This in itself is a m??st glowing tribute to the subject of Mi* sketch. The "music-cup," filled to the brim last week, has been drained and every draught *erve?l its Inspiration, and it is not going out of bounds to say that Thursday night's imbibition was the real exhllarant of the past season, taken in all senses of musical pleasure. The only musical affair "in talk" at present, in which local talent d??es not actively *nter is ihf* Sereboeck piano recital booked at the Opera House, May 20. This will be, without doubt. a treat, and no danger of being "taken In," for the mana gem en t oould not he In bettor keeping, nil details are being arranged by Mr*. Albert C. "Whttaker. a farmer pupil of the pianist, and whore word, an to his ability aa a musician, would carry much weight. Another affair, not nt homo In Wheeling. but every when1. Its appropriateness In this column Is due to -the fact that through It* "coming off." a Wheeling lady has received a merited compliment. Airs. Prank Le Moyne Hupp, a member of the Oratorio, Society, has been chosen n.\ vie** president, f*<r the state of West Virginia, for the nineteenth convention of the Music Teachers National Association. The pn ~ nt Is Herbert Wllber Greene. .?f New York. This convention Is to 1h? held in New York city June 24 to Inclusive. The object of all Interest? I la to make it the musical event of the century. Any one wishing Information can obtain It from Mrs. Hupp. By th? way. the organ in the First Presbyterian church Is helng completely overhauled and It Is the endeavor to make it equal to any In the city. The organist and the choir deserve this tribute, for the ensemble Is entirely professional. and, taken from ttint point or view, musi represent t-he choir* to the city's Sunday guests. Speaking of church guests Trinity EJdscopal church, liellalre, l.i host t?? many <?urh. Its vested choir la now the pride of the mu?lc-lovlng pc6ple of'that elty. The Banter services are to he repeated by request to-morrow. This Item Is pertinent to Musical Wheeling1, because the choir's director, Mr. Prank Roomer, belongs In part to Wheeling, being connected with the Wheeling Drug Company. Mr. Roemor Is president of the BelUlre Choral Society, an enthusiast In mimical matters, and hid directorship of the choir of Trinity P. E. church speaks for his ability. And while on the topic "church music." the Klmr'* Daughters of 8t. Matthew's P. K. church, have arrnnged "a sivell muslcale" to dp given In the McLure house parlor*, next Thursday evening. Thl? I* this organisation's first public appeal, and for that reiu?on an organ recital arranged for tin* ?ame evening In St. M.ittiww'.j church, for iii- benefit of the choir boy?* wummcr outing, ha* again been postponed. This McLait House parlor iniHlcnle Is to be the beginning of :i series of *uch, and the participant* on this first occasion will bp MendanK** Feeble* Tatum, Nellie Sweeney Palmer, fJuy Wagner. Flora Williams. Nellie Warren Holloway; Mlmen Isabel M. Manner and Flora H. Pollock, nnd Mr. Charles Zulauf. A silver offering at the door will give admission, nnd the treat after entrance, the above names symbol ICC. Another happpnlriff ?>f <lh<v week will he the second concert of (he Philharmonic Quartet. In the A. O. U. W. hall, next Tuesday pvonlng. These concert* are open to all Interested In good music or seekers of a pleasurable evening. The programmes are always good, and well Interpreted, and the one arranged for next Tuesday, I* especially Interesting, because two of the numbers are allotted to Mr Kred II. Dan vers, basso, who I makes hit* first public appearance. An' other faet worthy of notice. In connection j with tils eppearance, 1* that hU selections arc new to the average concertgler.
