taken ill while stooping at Mr. Haines’bouse,
and, although Mrs. Haloes herself was
in delicate health, she and her husband told the
stranger to give hlmsolt no uneasiness, ns ho

saying anything about the matter outside of
their own home. It was onlv bv accident that
Hie Her. Mr. Adams hoard of the case, and bo

ing-gallery at No. 130 West Madison street.
This is the establishment where the accidental

which tlic penalty is SSO fine.
There was uolhing new in the police war
yesterday, except Hint Supt. Seavoy said if
those who hud been asked to resign did not do
u they would tie summarily dismissed. Mayor
Harrison Monday told a commuted of Aldermen
that they should nut ho dismissed until otter
an investigation of the charges against them, so
it is illilicuit to know what to expect. The Al
dermen, however, have lost nuee of their feeling
in the matter, and it is barely possible that Hie
Police Committee may take some action on the
subject this uiternoon, though it Is really none
of their business.
It has leaked out at last. “Judge” Fetch's
Interest in the stone business is Unu ho is our of
u joli, mid wants to get Uni position now held
by Col. Roberts lu tne cilice of the City Attor
ney. He was a member of the “ polley-shop"
gang in the spring election which hied Col. Hie*
üby out of 5100 to get his name ou (heir ticket,
ami this Is against him lu his application for u
place under Urtnmdl; so it Is said that he has
taken up this stone business to surround him
self witu Aldermanie Imlncnccs, mid to fores
Ids way into the City Attorney's ofllco through
l.awier, McNally, et 01. It remains to be seen
how successful ho will bo.

ger, statluuod at the Northwestern Railroad de
pot, were liclure Bupt. Seavey, charged with va
rious olfefucs--omission and commission.
“Juclgu" lioruum appeared for the prosecution,
uud ••Judge" Tuley occupied u seat in the
background, while numerous Aldermen attest
ed their Interest In the matter by their presence,
'the evidence showed that the accused had been
fostering a lot ol conlldeuce-aicn, drinking at
the saloons in Ihu neighborhood, etc, and doing
auuiiry oilier things, but thu character of tliu
witnesses was not tliu best, so the esse was de
cidedly mixed. This being a bad tluu to rush
at rssh conclusions, the whole thing was taken
uoder advisement.
Thu City Treasurer received a small amount
of city scrip from Uus County Collector yester
day. among which was su issue of Anrll 15,1878,
against the fckhoot-Tax Fund, which bad been

whom It was indorsed. Alter leaving her hands
no one knows whoso bands It passed through,
Imt It finally turned no In the hands nf Ogden,
Sheldon A Co., mid was bv them paid to the
County Collector for taxes. The "raise” Is a
very nm job, and \t was only detected In iho
Treasurers office bv reference to the book In
which all certificates of indebtedness arc regis
tered. it Is avldcutly the work of an expert,
mid the loss will tall on the llrm who paid It to
the County Collector.
ALD. TULKt’A POSITION.
Aid. Tutor was asked yesterday as to why ho
left the Council room Monday evening pending
thu discussion of the question uf closing Ihe
saloons Sundays, and said that ho was just nt
the foot of the stairs, and had been called! out
by persons who wanted to talk to him about
getting n position under Mr. Harrison. The
charge having been made Unit ho left thu room
to avoid voting on the question, the reporter
next sought to ascertain how ho would huvo
voted If lie bad been present, but found
him non-committal, lie appeared to cla«s
himself os a J micro already, and
disposed of the scribe by asking him to get Urn
other .Judges In a row and sound them on the
samo subject ilrst. If the Alderman la not care
ful, and persists In concealing his views on this
Important question, he need not be astonished
to llud a committee from the Temperance Alli
ance Dulling at Ids door-bell some of these even
ings between now and June.
COUNTY BUILDING.

erable success.

his brother-in-law. ilcgwclu, will be culled hi the
Criminal Court this morning, and, the postpone
ment business being about exhausted, thu trial
will probably go ou. "Seif-defense” will bo
the plea, the Insanity dodge having petered out
very thin.
The Committee on Public Charities yesterday
audited n number of bills. They also discussed
informally the propriety of amending Commis
sioner Bradley’s resolution In regard to out
door relief during the summer, which is believed
to bo too stringent. It Is probable that some

The Grand Jury yesterday considered about a
dozen miscellaneous cases, mid found indict
ments against ten persons. Six Indictments for
assault with Intent to murder wero found
agaiust the sanguinary Shannon for his indis
criminate target-practice nt iho Star ami Cres
cent Mills. 'Hie case of Peter Lundburg, the
Hyde Park policeman who shot Thomas Hogan,
was taken up, and ouo witness, M. Farrell, was
examined.
The Committee on Town ami Town Accounts
arc understood to favor the appulutmcut of a
man to poriodtcnllr Inspect the hooks of Le
mor.t, Hyde Park, Luke, mid other towns, mid
lo report the eases of such persons homo upon
them ns may nut be deserving of public cliaritv.
It Is believed In tbls way largo Hums can bo
saved, ns In many of tbe towns, notably Lu
moot mid Hyde Park, many undeserving are or
have been recipients of relief.
Col. E. 0. McClannahanput the county to nn
expense of 850 yesterday in wlmt seems an un
necessary manner. Lew Johnson, who had
previously pleaded guilty to u charge of bur
dory, asked leave to withdraw the plea, and
permission was granted. Assistant State's-
Attorncy Weber. In stating the case to tho Jury,
Inadvertently mentioned me fact that defend

representing Johnson, asked fora continuance
on this ground, and, this motion being over
ruled. bo •* challenged the array.’ 1 The
Court allowed Uie objection and Issued
a special venire for twcidy-llvo men.
8o far. McChmnatnm was dearly within
his prooer lino, but when a jnrr had been ob-
tolncd he turned around and advised his client
to plead guilty. It is difilcalt to see what motive
he could have had In causing all this delay,
trouble, mid expense unless he Intended to light
thu case, and it is scarcely probable that this bit
ot sharp practice will at nil advantage Johnson,
who is an old I’cuitcminrv bird.
CUSTOM-HOUSE.

THE NEW BROOMS.
COMPTROLLER GURNET.
Tho new appointees for Comptroller, Com
missioner of Public Works, and City Collector
quietly stepped into their olllccs yesterday
morning, the only Impediment thereto being
the dense crowd of place-hunters who lined tho
sidewalk around the Clly-llnll. They were duly
welcomed, of course, by those they succeeded,
and by the employes, who for weeks past hare
been in a state of the greatest uncertainty.
As soou as Mr. Gurney had been given posses
sion of the Comptroller’s ofllce ho pulled off his
coal and went to work Just as if ho meant busi
ness. A reporter called upon him a few mo
ments later, and to him ho talked quite freely
about the future, lie said tie knew very ilttlo
of the needs of the cilice so far, and compara
tively nothing of tho details of its management,
but Hading everything running smoothly ho did
uot propose to Interrupt tho course of adults
until no could do it Intelligently, uml
ho would onlv do what might seem necessary to
promote the public Interest. In tho matter of
appointments he did not propose to do anything
until he hud opportunity to seo wlmt was need
ed, nod he could only get this Information bv
commencing at the ''ground and working up
until he hod entirely familiarized himself with
the work before him. lie knew nothing of the
system adopted by his predecessor of keeping
his accounts, and for all ho know tho system in
vogue might be tho best one possible, but ho
was not inclined to take it for granted,
nnd nothing less than a personal
knowledge of tho minutest detail of tho
olllco would satisfy him. His Idea of Dm situa
tion, however, was that the city war like an In*
dividual, ami ihut it could not constantly be do*
hit; business on borrowed cujjltal. Its expeudi*
turcs would have to hear some relation to Us
resources, uud Its business would bare to bo so
managed and Its expenditures so curtailed that
in a few years it could pay or it went. Thu
policy of the past two years struck him as nd*
mlrflblo, and ho would nut deviate from It iua>
teriiilly. Scrip would have to bo Issued to keep,
the machinery at work, bbt in no case would
the .appropriations be exhausted or war*
rants drawn to the full amount. What the
percentage or limit of Jibe I.*huu of warrants
would ha lie could not nay* hut he would dee (do
to-day: hut whatever the amount might be, It
would be agreed uimui with the view to accumu-
lating money rather than debt*, ns n legacy for
whoever might succeed him. Such a policy,
aided by a rigid economy in the various depart
ments, he thought, would enable the city in a
few years to pay all or its hills upon presenta
tion lu cash, mul to do away with Hie issuing of
scrip, lie had ordered a new form of warrant
to be printed, and hereafter each one Issued
would be registered by a clerk to be placed
lu the City Treasurer's otllce, mid us
far ns possible he intended to do away witli
Issuing them for small amounts, but tilts was
yet to bo determined.
MU. •WAT.I.BU,
in taking charge of the ofllcc of Commissioner
of I‘ublic Worn*, was Introduced to the em-
ployes, mid at once set about acquainting him
self with the duties of the position. On (lie
matter of appointments, whlcn was uppermost
in the minds of many, he slated to a delegation
of Aldermen that ho did not propose to turn the
olllco into a political mochlue, which was Inter
preted to nuai] that where ho found etncicnt
men he sliuuld.’mnke no changes unless forced
to. It will take him Rome time to become
acquainted with his manifold duties, hut the
mure he learns of the olllce the belter lie will he
satisfied that the men around him ore eillcieiit
mid deserving, ami the clearer it will appear to
him that it would bo disastrous to displace them
to make room for iuellkiout and inexperienced
partisans, if ctlklency, attentiveness to busi
ness, faithfulness, Industry, and general civility
are to ho made (he tests, he will go a great ways
before he succeeds in bettor surrounding him
self than ho now is.
MU. ONAIf.VN,
in taking charge of the Collector’s olllce, named
diaries WliUu ns his Deputy, and appointed
cx-Deputy Coroner MeGimou clerkship. Other
changes lire to bo tnude, hill not for the present.
The duties of the olllco are Tory simple, and it
would almost run itself If let alone.
JMIIG MAIISUAL UKNNEII
called upon Commissioner Waller, and urged
tins letting of ilm contract at' once for the ex*
tension of the large thlrtv-slx-inch water main
on LaSalle street south from Its present termi
nus at Adams street ou Sherman to Harrison.
Sherman and Van Huron streets are being turn
tin for repairs, and the extension, which Is much
needed, can be done now with greater conven
ience and cheapness than it can b« done again
for a long time. The extension is needed for
(he protection of a very dangerous district, umi
it will be an absolute necessity as soon as the
twelve-inch main on Harrison street has boon
extended from Sherman to Uespluinos, whouco
Dm main U now laid to (he West Bide works.
The Commissioner promised to give the matter
his early and earnest consideration.

UNDERGROUND WIRES,
TIIRRB IS A VBUY STRONG rUODAUIUTT
that cro long Uic unsightly telegraph poles
which now Incumber .our sidewalks and the ob
jectionable and dangerous net-work of wires
now suspended over our beads will ail bo swept
Into Unit Umbo where lies the primitive appar
atus of our great inventions. Gun. Stager, it Is
said, has purchased the sole right, Individually,
of the cable patented by David Brookes, of Phil
adelphia, ami If all said Is true, that Invention Is
the one destined to work the revolution. Al
ready It Ims been tested (n the East,
and when it was submitted to tho French
Government lately by Mr. Dlddel, tho Invent
or’s Parisian asrenr, the most flattering consid
eration was shown it. Instead of being sus
pended in the air, the wires convcvlng tele;
graphic communication will bo placed In an irou
lube, which is run into the ground nnd emerges
wherever wanted. Tho wires arc drawn in'the
form of a cable, insulated with cotton. The
cubic Is nm through the aforesaid iron pipe,
which Is Idled with paraffine oil,—one of the
best Known Insulators.—and both ends of the
pipe are scaled. As the business Is carried on
now, the wires nnd poles, unprotected from the
weather, are continually getting out of order.
This, us one can readily perceive, U
obviated by the invention of Mr. Brookes.
The introduction of this new cable would, of
course, be a matter of considerable expense, out
after it Is once laid the money paid for repairs
would bo trilling in comparison to that now dis
bursed bv the companies tor that purpose. One
of Its chief beauties "Which recommended tho
patent strongly to the French Government was
lUe assistance and security It would give the
State In case of riot or war. The wires would
be completely out of signt, and, their location
being known ontv to a few, they would bu per
fectly cafe from destruction.
What Gen. Stager’s plansaco his associates hero
donotdcflnUelrkuuwyct; but this rancho Turn
u.se representative ascertained yesterday.—that
the cable will be utilized immediately bv the
American District Telephone Company. Tests
have been made In tilts city, and at tho present
time two cables are now In operation—through
such tunnel! Insuch a locality the experiment
Is of the most trying nature:'but the practica
bility of the cable has been thoroughly demon
strated.
THE COOPERS.
TVIT.Ii THERE 118 A GENERAL STRIKBI
An announcement appeared lu an evening
paper yesterday that*a meeting of coopers
would be held th<R (Wednesday) evening for the
purpose of considering whether or not a general
strike should bo Inaugurated. For the purpose
of ascertaining the reasons for this action, a
Thidunb reporter looked up one of the most
prominent members of the coopers* craft mid
Inquired what special grievance the trade had,
mid why the move wav made. This was Mr.
George Schilling, Secretary of the Coopers'
Union, and one of the best-known among the
Socialist agitators.
Mr. Schilling said that the first Intimation
that lie had of the intended meeting was con*
talnod In the announcement referred to, mid
that at a largo meeting of coopers which he at
tended on the previous evening nothing was
said of any proposed strike. The movement
must therefore bo entirely u spontaneous one,
although he was nut surprised to hear of It.
lie supposed that it originated with the 11 tight*
burrel ” coopers,—those who make whisky mid
pork barrels and lard tierces. He was engaged
In the manufacture of flour barrels, a different
class of work. But all branches of the trade
were equally depressed.
AVlth regard to prices, ho sold that the tight*
barrel men hud been screwed down to the lowest
notch, and it was really impossible for them to
make living wages. They got 25 cents for mak
ing n lard-tierce or a barrel, and ho had beard
flint one man said he could get the work done
for 15 cent-*. It took a tirst-cluss man to make
forty of these In a week, and to make six a
day he must work hard amt rapidly. In 1871
the price ranged Irani 81 to sl.lO, and touched
81,25, and for a couple of years following that
good figures were obtained. Hut since then the
course of wages had been down-hill all the time.
An average workman could not complete more
than four barrels or tierces in a day. mid it was
no wonder that they bad grown tired of it.
The reporter asked about the flour-barrel
trade. Mr. Schilling said that a ready good
workman could make fifteen or perhaps sixteen
in a day. The price paid was nine cents for
shave-hooped barrels mid 10 cents for half
shaved and hulf-polud. lint, as a rule, ten to
twelve barrels represented a good day’s work for
a fair workman. In fanner times The price was
25 cents. lie believed that the day of the Hour
barrol was nearly over, and that la the near
future flour would ho put up exclusively In
sacks, either of paper or some textile fabric.
There was do money in the trade, mul
it was 'hard lor even (irsl-ciass coopers
to make a living. Hu knew nothing of the In
tention of the trade at largo, but thought the
subject would be fully discussed at the meeting.
As to liio probable action of the gathering in*
was unable to give even a miens. All he knew
was Hint wages were extremely low, and that
very naturally the men were much dissatisfied.
TAII.OKS* BTUIKB,
Yesterday afternoon about a score of the
journeymen tailors employed by Willoughby,
UIU a Co. marched into the presence of the
foreman with the unfinished garments on their
arms, and refused to llulsh them unless their
demands for au Increased schedule of wages
wore compiled with, inasmuch us this un
expected request could not be complied with,
they are indulging in the costly luxury of a
strike. The men who are now on the strike
are coatmskers, and, their employers claim,
make Irom 914 to $lB fur a week’s work
of ten hours per day. The principal demand
of the coatmakers Is for extra pay for extra
pockets, (laps, etc., for which the firm receive no
extra compensation from their customers.
Messrs. W.. 11. & Co. state that they are doing
work in Chicago which they formerly had done
In New York, and they claim that they pay their
Journeymen as much, if not more, than other
tailors, and cannot sell clothes at present prices
It wages are raised or extras allowed. Tito
strikers have assumed the ollensivoand succeed

In their piaecs'and at former prices, The ilrm
will, if necessary, import men from the East to
