FarwcJl back at Ins old post yesterday, lie Is
to remain In the office a short while to Induct
Mr. Gurney Into the mysteries thereof.
The City Treasurer received yesterday $5,358
from the Water Department, S3OO from the

In reference to the bill pending In the Legis
lature providing for limiting the taxation In cit
ies to 3 per cent of the valuation, cz-Cotnp
troller Farwcll so vs that, so far as this city is
concerned, If the' bill becomes a law it would
result In forcing up the valuation of property.
The prevent valuation Is $131,000,000, and (he
rate Is 2.80, wnlch realizes barely enough to pay
the runnlngcxpcnscs. It the matter of paying
the expenses of the Cltv Government, however,
was the only thing involved, an Increased val
notion would amout to nothing, but os ills, If
the limit was made 2 per cent, the cltv’s propor
tion ot Stale taxes would bo largely Increased.
On the whole, ho does not think the bill In
question omibt to be passed.

followed, testifying under onth, but nothing
new wns bromrlit out, except Uio testimony of a
few boss stonecutters' that there had been no
general strike, mid hence the contractors on the
City*Uall had had no reason to take the cutting
ot the stone out of the city. Some of these days

driven over the city, and given “refreshments”
on the route; hut Mayor Harrison objected to
spending any money for “refreshments,” and
thought the expense should be conllncd to tho
hiring of carriages. Aid. Jonas agreed with
the Mayor, ami said that ho was willing to con
tribute. out of his own pocket, for ‘‘refresh
ments’* If tho visitors wore thirsty, ami ho
thought it would bo a good Idea for the other
members of tho Committee to.contribute also,
collier than any expense should bo saddled an
tho city. Aid. Lawler did not take to tho sug
gestion Iclmliv, but said If the visitors were
taken to his saloon he would crack a few bottles

The Hospital Committee mot and audited a
few bills yesterday. The members also had an
Informal tall: upon the subject of the petition of
tin- Homeopathists to be allowed a representa
tion on the Board of Medical Directors of the
County Hospital. It seemed to be the prevail
ing Idea that, if a portion of the Board consisted
of Homeopathic physicians and a portion of
Allopathic physicians, there would be a disagree
ment of doctors, In the midst of wnlch the pa
tients would probably die. U was thought to
ho better to turn the entile Board over to Ute

THE CERTIFICATES.
INCREASED CROWDS.
The crowds at the Sub-lreasury and Post-
Ofllee.wcre larger than ever yesterday. The
boyviicgan to assemble as early as Da. m., nml
nt 0 a. m. there wore at least 700 raeiL women,
»ml children In line at the former, and over 800
nt the latter, and at no timo up to 3 o’clock,
when the sale of certlllcatca ccsscs, were there
less than 400 waiting at either place.
THo speculators were os busy ns ever, and the
crowd composed of the usual number
of tramps, thieves, boys, and girls. Now mid
then a whole family could be seen, the father
first, next the mother, and following Use daugh
ters nml sons down to 10 years of age. The
more numerous Dio progent the larger, of
course, Urn profits on the day’s work. At the
I’oai-Ofllco the policemen.wont-along the line
and required the pwolo to show SIOO. If bho
couldn’t do It, he or she was removed. The ob
ject was to stop the selling of places for 50 or 76
cents. The same thing was done at the Sub-
Treasury, and one fellow who refused to step
out was arrested. He, however, was subse
quently released by a Justice of the Fence, hav
ing been cuilly of no violation of law. In view
ut this decision the bilkers made no turther
elTorts In Use direction indicated, and men near
tiie door openiv sold their positions. As was
stated In yesterday's Triounc,
TUK TUIF.VK9
are at work and making lots of money. Fred
Ktby dropped SIOO vesterdoy. The man, a
stranger, to whom he gave the money, was
arrested, but it was, of .course, not found on
nim. uuu he was released, speculators may not
know that the money is passed over to third
parties, generally boys, who walk off quletiv,
and they might as well pocket their loss with
out growling; there is no help fur them. An
old lady who hod reached the desk alter six
hours’waiting and gotten her SIOO in certill
entes was met at the LaSalle street entrance of
tho Cmdom-llotao by a thief, who grabbed the
documents ami ran. A detective tried to catch
him, but was not successful.
Nothing is likely to be done toward stopping
the speculation; indeed, nothing can be, since
(tic applicants cannot bo questioned ns to the
use they purpose making of the certificates.
They would lie about it anyhow, and to put
every on*» on the stand os he came along would
bo a waste of time. At the Suo-Trcusury S!W,OtK)
wore disposed, and at the Post-Oillco SBO,OOO,
making $680,000 for the latter to date, or
$1,020,000 sold in Chicago slnlo April 1. The
demand is so great Hint oilier receivers of Gov
ernment muuov in tills city, who, under the law,
can become agents, are making arrangements to
secure a supply of tho paper. This will Increase
the sales, of cuitrso, but it will only give the
speculators a chance to make more money, and
not result it what the law contemplated,—the
placing ul (tie paper In Uie hands of the indus
trious and saving poor.
LATBR IN TUB DAT,
a young follow by the nbmo of Rainey, who has
always Imil a (rood character, and who worked

According to Cook, hu hired Rainey day before
Yesterday to tmv some certificates, and ho failed
to return either the money or the paper, saying
that ho hud turned thu $uK) over to soma other
man who had failed to make return to him. In
Krbv’s case, thu latter cayo Rainey $-100, but he

TUB NOUTII ‘BRANCH.
CONDITION OF THE rtttLUTBU BTIIBAU.
With Uiu approach of Uip, heateu term the at
tention of the citizens qf Chicago is very nat
urally turned to tho sanitary condition of the
city. The stench factonej iu the South and
Southwest Divisions have been,lf not suppressed,
certainly moderated, aml'thn employes of thu
Hoard of Health look iuJUffcrcutly well after
thu alloys nud by-ways. Upt there ts one stand
ing cause of danger for which it. seems that no
remedy can ba applied, and that is the ever
ulleustvu river. So many''complaints hove re
cently been madu üboutltuo condition of the
North Branch that a reporter of Tub Tuiounb
yesterday took a trip alougi Us banks from Lake
street to the city limits foir the purpose of inves
tigating the matter. '.'l
The North Branch U. indescribably filthy.
Even at Klnzlo street bridge Its waters are of
Inky blackness, and Die f/ifUier north one trav
els tho worsu tbo river becomes. Yesterday
there was u lair breese blowing from the north
east, but It failed to raise a ripple on the stag
nant uud Ullhv ditch,—fur It Is no more a river
than Mud Lake or Ucaly Slough. Poisonous
gases bud up through the lllthy water, uud uu
the surface lloat the carcasses of lung-deceased
cats, dogs, and other animals. At thu Chicago
avenue bridge the river grows even worse.
TUI BXUXLATION* VHOM TUB WXVBA
are absolutely alckeulu& auU litre, os at evcrv
point where the channel narrow* or makes a
turn. the eddies, or what would bo bucli If there
wore nnv current, are choked with festering
masses of garbage. Hero and there may ho
seen a dead Huh floating wrong aide up, lor no
animal or breathing creature can live In the foul
and polluted water. These fish have found
their war In from Lake Michigan, and hay© paid
the penalty of tholr rashness.
But whcnGooso Island Is reached the conal
tlon of affairs hecotnea even more alarming.
Hero the river separates Into two channels, ono
of which runs north-northwest, parallel with
Hawthorne avenue, whllo the other runs north*
west for several blocks, and thence north
to North avonue, where a lunctlon Is directed.
The Island la«s very low*, In loct, a part of its
northeastern shore Is below the level of the
river, and hence It must receive much of the
(Htli from that disgusting receptacle of gorbage.
How the Goose Islanders got along for drainage
Is a mystery.
TUB STRAIGHT-COT,
or Ogden Cansl, from Chicago avenue to North
avenue, is a mass of filth and corruption. The
Blncnnnt water sends forth a stench compared
to which the odors of a Done-factory oie as
breeze* from Araby the Bloat. It Is full of do
caving vegetable matter, long-lost doss and
cats whoso nluth life has been ab
ruptly closed. In this neighborhood
there are many distilleries, tanneries,
and other large manufactories, and each of
these assists to a greater or less degree In
throwing a fresh perfume upon the violet. The
river also receives considerable accessions of
tilth and sewerage from the houses along Ua
banks. ...
The bridge on FlaUted street, which connects
Goose Island with the mainland, Is a very good
point lor Intending Investigators who have a
spite against their stomachs. 000 of the draws
Is blocked up with earth, and here is a perfect
cesspool. Just below, the channel la choked by
a sunken vessel, and hero again there Is an accu
mulation of filth enough to sicken anybody.
Above t he Junction, where the river broadens, the
vegetable and animal deposits are less noticea
ble, but tho water Is still of Inky blackness and
the sracllls very bad. Even at Fullerton ave
nue the same Is the case.
TUB CONDUIT.
For several years past (he citizens of Chicago
have been fed with promises of the great re
form to be made In the condition of the North
Branch when tho Fullerton avenue conduit
should bo completed. Out, judging from the
appearance of matters on that thoroughfare,
this will uot occur before tho next Presidential
election. There Is some tunneling yet to do
near the river, and, apparently, the port which
has been built over requires considerable
more work before It will bo ready lor use.
There Is not even a hole m the ground to
show wnore the pumping-engines aru to bo
placed which are to cleauso this filthy river. In
the meantime the residents of Goose Istaud and
tho dwcllcrs nlong tho banks of the river are
exposed to all its evil effects, and If tho cholera
should get this far west It would find a con
genial stamping-ground on Goose Island, and a
powerful ally lu the foycr-breoillng Noilb
Branch.
FINIS ARTS.
ORGANIZING TUB NEW ACADEMY.
An adjourned meeting of prominent citizens
Interested In the establishment of an art school
in this city met lost evening at the Palmer
House to bear the report o£ a committee ap
pointed a week previous. Among others there

Mr. J. H. Dole was called to the chair, and
Mr. French officiated as Secretary. At the con*
elusion of the formal services Incident to the

consideration bad been given to the advisability
of sustaining the Academy of Design, widen

leaving It In debt SB,OOO. '.The Committee were
In favor of establishing a,now society within the
aim and scope of Academy, and
to come within the statute relating
to societies ,pot organized for pecuniary
prriilt. It hid bdim,..,suggested that on
alliance might be formed with oilier educational
institutions, but the Cotdndttco believed it was
best for the Society to stand independent and
alone. No stops wore necessary to preserve the
present art school. Timeouts and ocher property
were bought In by a trlcnd for $350, and the
school was running along’by virtue of its own
Inertia. The Committeewould recommend
that aa carlv organization be effected, because
the present changes lu the.school, if allowed to
continue, wilt have a damaging lullucuco.
The Committee recommended Hint the new
organization b» called ilia “ Chicago Academy
of Fine Arts,” am! that.it.be governed by a
board of lUtccn 't rustees, to bo elected as tbe
by-laws may provide, those for the ftrst year to

The Committee suggested a scries of by-laws i
providing for the organization. They specify
Unit tlm memhcralilp shall consist of three
classes*, corporate, honorary, and annual aub
scrioers. The payment of SIOO constitutes a
coroorato member, who shall have the right to

orary members shall consist of artists, patrons,
mid others who may render the Academy emi
nent services. Tim payment of $1(1 shall const!*
tutu an annual membership, bat without the
right to vote for Trustees. Tim business of tlm
Academy shall bo intrusted to an Executive
Committee of five, and In addition there shall bo
Committees on Instruction and Exhibition.
The report of tlm Committee was accepted,
and on motion of Mr. Adams the number of
Trustees was increased to twenty by the od*
Uitlon of Messrs. W. H. Bradley. John Q.
Bhortall, 11. N. Hibbard, Charles Hutchinson,

A NI'VW AVRINKTVE.
COMPETITION IN THE UOHTNINq-KOD BUSINESS.
John Adrlouce, 37 years of aec, American,
sluglu. was booked for vagrancy at thu Armory
yesterday upon complaint of Smith, Uowltt &
Co., No. 253 Lake street. There was nothing
remarkable at drat sight in this, as such arrests
are frequently made, but when the prosecution
showed up la court with Col. McClanehau os
their attorney, the affair did bear an uuusuol
look, and a reporter begau to look It up. Col.
MeCl&nuhnu kindly Imparted all Urn knowledge
lu lila power. Ills clients are manufacturers of
and dealers In lightning-rods mid weather-vanes.
The prisoner had been noticed loafing about
their premises for several months. Tbclr em
ployes, and busluess-mou lu the vicin
ity, and even their customers noticed
ibis peculiar personage always about thu
neighborhood, mid apparently never doing any
tiling, either for his own support or fur any one
else, Speculation as to who and what Uu was
became rife. Home thought ha was a confidence
operator who baa selected that thoroughfare ua
u nice, quiet one forms vocation; others tuought
bo was a detective engaged in keeping watch
over some otic, but btauuguscmcuiwas tooloug
for such work; and yet others took him to
bo a “crunk,” or a Second-Adventist,
who was patiently waiting fur the
world to came to an end. All these theories
wore proven unsatisfactory. In the meantime
ho became uu object of luereasiug curiosity, and
was more carefully watched. Ouo day be woa
seen to copy Um address upon some goods con
signed to customers by Smith Hewitt & Co.,
while the packages were lytug upon tbo aide
walk preparatory to shipment. Tms, then, was
the lung sought-for-soluUou, lie was employed
by somu rival luaumactucur or dealer to Ua lu wait
for goods shipped by this tlrm, and copy thu ad
dress and amount shipped for the benefit of bis
employers, inis discovery was only recently
madu; Yesterday a watch was sot, and he was
suea to take thu address of good* on tbo side
walk ready for sbluipout, and everything, even
to a warrant, being lu readiness be was
arrested and taken to the Armory. Noth
ing of an extraordinary character was fouud
upon Ulm wtica searched st (he station,
but shortly afterward a dilxeu, whoso uaiuels
unknown, came iu and undressed himself thus
to the siaUou-kecocr: “Oeutss I don’t know
auvthlug about this ease, and don’t like to In
terfere; but on the way to tho station the pris
oner dropped this card, and I picked it up. It
may be of some use,” ... . _ «
This curd bore the following: J. F, Talt,
Clorhiua, la., five bundles. I mU one crate, one
box; Smith, U. & Co., £j_>auut. Neb., Uvo
bundles, one box, and wfj bundles uud one
box; and p’ouktlu Bros., Hutchinson, Ks., seven
boxes and four bundles. Tub Mr. Hewitt at
onto recognized an an Inventory of shipments
tnuv had made yesterday to customers, i'ho
shipment to Smith, H. «fc Co. was made to them
solves. They got duplicate railroad receipts In
such a shipment, mid, after writing an order
on the reverse of one of these receipts
malt It to the customer. ■ This
course they have been compelled to lake be
cause of the Injury done their business by rival,
firms. Mr. Hewitt stales that In the past fow:
months customers have forwarded to him cop es)
of telegrams sent, Inquiring, “ Who docs Smith./

When arrested the prisoner wished word sent
to Reyburn, Hunter & Co., the branch In this
city at a Philadelphia house of the same name,
