TUB PAWNDRORBKS.
It was noted some days ago that the City At
torney was on the eve of commencing proceed
ings In the courts to test the question ot whether
a pawnbroker's business could be done on a
second-hand dealer’s license. Thu new law af
fecting pawnbrokers throws around them cer
tain restrictions which they object to. uml
the consequence has been they have
taken out second-hand dealers' licenses,
which cost less than thu pawnbroker's
license, hence the trouble, Yesterday
Mr. Urlunell bad an extended ‘lnterview with
the attorney bf the pawnbrokers on the subject,
aud he made up his mind iliat the best tiling he
could do would be to draft and secure- the
passage of a now ordinance on the subject,
from the fact that a test cose would probably
drag through thu courts tor soma! years, 'and
in me meamimo the city would bo robbed of
cousideranle revenue. lie was at work on the
new ordinance in the afternoon, nut did not
complete tt. Some of Us features will be, how
ever, the Increasing of thuprlce of second-band
dealer's licenses irora $37 to SIOO or more,
aud requiring them to make reports, etc.,
as the pawnbrokers ire required to do,
which he hopes will hsvu the effect
to bring considerable money into thu Treasury
that cannot now be gotten. He says bu has no
faith In the constitutionality ot thu new Pawn
brokers* law; but, waiving this point, he wants
to put them lu position so that tber cannot
dodge thu law to thu extent of robbing the city,
aa me; are now doing under the second-hand
dealers' ordinance. In other words, with thu
co-operaUou of the Council, bs proposes to see
THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: THURSDAY. JULY 17. 1870-TWELVE PAGES.
Mint persons m the pawnbroking business pnT fIJ
much Into IheCltvTrcasurvtlus ycaras they did
last and have done heretofore. 'I he ordinance
will bo laid before the Council Monday evening,
and. since the pawnbroker* are understood not
to bo opposed to its general provisions, tliero
ought to be very little opposition to Ha passage.
MISCtItBVOL'B ALDEBMEN,
It turns out that the street laborers them
selves, notwithstanding (he Council resolution
fixing Hitlr per diem at $3, never demanded
that sum, mid It Is doubtful if a single one of
them ever asked an Alderman to have such an
order passed. They receive $1.75 a day for
ten hours* work, amt ore perfectly satisfied.
Nor have they had a hand In digging up thu
cicht-hour resolution. That was solely the
workol two of flic Socialist Aldermen, who. It
would seem, acted on their own responsibility.
Tim opinion of the Corporation Counsel *lias
burled It again, • and Commissioner Waller Is
going ahead as usual.
FEDERAL FUCKERS.
The Sub-Treasury disbursements yesterday

hereafter.
One of the Ananlas-aml-Sapphlra style of
niternoon papers published in this city camo
out yesterday with a paragraph to the died
time ‘'the Chicago Secrei-Scrvleo Agents,”
whoever they arc, were expecting the advent
hereof some new counterfeit $5 notes on the
National Mohawk River Bank, of Mohawk, N.
Y., mid the Niagara Couutv National Bank, of
Lockport, N. Y. Some of the latter, according
to tms post-meridian Jim Anderson, were even
now being placed in circulation. It Is sutllclcnt
to say that the Bub-Treasury people know
nothing about thu alleged counterfeits,
and that ther would be the very first
to know of them if they were
In existence, or if there was any prospect of
their being '‘shoved” on the country. The
same paper, with Us penchant for giving alleged
news, actually caught up with Hit- morning pa
pers of about a month ago, when, in another
column, It solemnly states t nut Capt. Burac. of
the sebuooer Andrew Jackson, had received a
modal from John Sherman for rescuing thu
crow of me schooner Jo Vilas, Oct. 9,187(1, and
ihatCnot. Hendricks, of Ludmgton, Mich., has
been similarly honored. Jictwicn wild state
ments of something alleged to bu on the tapis
and the warming over of old news on which lu
feed Its readers, thu twilight-dip in question
leads all Us evening contemporaries.

TVATER-SUPPET.
TUB WBST SIDE ENGINES. '
' Tnis TitfouNS a few days ago showed to what
an alarming extent the water-supply of the city
Is permitted to go to wosto, owing, mainly, to
the extravagant habits of the people, and with
what certainty the fact was staring us In tne
face that, unless something was doflo to put a
stop to It, thu tlrau was not far off when new
pumping engines would bo a necessity. Even
then, with the constantly growing city, and the
wastage Increasing In proportion to the Increase
of population, It would bo a question whether
one or two engines would bo able to keep up
the supple demanded unless there could ben
curtailment, in some manner, of the amount
that is permitted to run waste, it was, how
ever, pointed out that this might bo done in
various wavs.
There were some who were inclined to believe
Tub TmnUNß’a statements regarding the ne
cessity lor now engines in tbu near future as
unwarranted by thu present conditions. But
the fact remains that the engines on the West
Side arc now almost worked to Ihotr utmost
available capacity, and the demand upon them
is being constantly augmented. When these
engines were erected, it was found Hint ouo
could be worked at a time and enough water
pumped to supply the West Division. Soon
after It was' necessary to work both of them,
and since last (all and up to a few weeks ago
DOTH HAVE UKBN IK CONSTANT OPERATION,
with the exception of very brief stoppages
now amt then for repairs. As for thorough
overhauling, neither e.igine has had it since
pumping was begun there. Thev did stop once
fur the purpose, but the work necessarily was
hurriedly mid Imperfectly done. • While thu
North bide engine wag being repaired the past
winter, the West Side machinery has been In
almost constant use. Now they run the two
engines from S a. in. until 10 p. m., when one is
stopped, oltornalpg them from day to day.
During the seven hours’ rest every night the
engineers look over the engine nut in use. The
otner is able to keep uothe requisite pressure
on the mains, for, during these hours, the con
sumption of water is comparatively email.
Bhould a large (Ire break out uiu idle engine Is
at once placed in motion.
Tho West Side engines bare an available ca
nacUy of about 30.000,(W0 gallons dally. Bv in
creasing tho speed of the.machinery, 84,(X)0,000
gallons may be pumped* but It would nut bo
considcrcu safe to keep* them at work at tbis
rate constantly, for the bolts would loosen and
o.her things occur tondihg to weaken the en
gines, until at last both might slmultoneously
break down, and, consequently, the western
portion of the city be |cut off from a water-sup
ply. The engines are now ruu at au average
capacity of 5t,000,000 gallons dally.

"No doubt of U.”

A SHAM EIGHT.
WUIOU CULMINATED IN A WOLD KODDZBT.
One of the moit daring robberies of the year
was accomplished Tuesday noon ot the south*
west corner of Cliuton and Jackson streets,
iu front of tbe works occupied by
the Garden City Lead-Pipe Works,
Samuel SebuU General Manager.
At about 12:80 tWo young men appeared on Uio
sidewalk m fron} of tbe ofllcc, and alter a few
ouury words began fighting. Pocket-knives
weredraauby each, sod they fought back and
forth. In an alarmingly murderous manner.
Finally ofte forced *lhe other backwards Into
the ofllcc, malting vicious stabs with his knife,
untiltbey reached an Inner room, where they
clinched and fought with amazing equality.
Mr. Scbutz, alarmed that tbe scrimmage would
result in a murder, ran after the combatants
and separated them after .some litllo trouble.
Both went off threatening each other* and
promising to settle the deadly feud the next
time they met. It was not unlit some minutes
elapsed that Mr. Schutz noticed that SSO cash
ami a gold watch nml chain were missing
from thu cash drawer. A moment's
search convinced him Ibal ho had
been robbed, ami then the truth of the preced
ing quarrel appeared to him In Its true light.
The fight was only n shorn, for lie remembered
that though they used their knives desperately,
neither was cut. The thief was then
siinplv the tool of these two mock
fighters. Ho at onco reported Ids
loss to Iho West Madison street police. Ho fur
nished so good a description of the men thatthe
olllccrs concluded that Billie Connors and Jo
seph Slater, the two most notorious thieves In
the city, were the perpetrators. Mr. Sebutx,
upon being shown tneir photographs In the
Hogues' Album, at ouco identified them as the
two men wanted.
The next step In the matter was to capture
those men, which Is by no means an ensv mat
ter, especially Just .after they have com
mitted any depredation. However, De
tectives Holey and Hoffman ascertained
that the gang were In the habit ot
meeting at or near the corner of Beach uml Polk
streets. Arrangements were mode In the office
of Iho oil works at that corner to telephone the
Information to the West Madison Street Station
should they meet at that corner as usual during
the day. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
the Information that they were there was re
ceived, and Detectives Shun ami Keating, Holey
and Huffman, and Smith mid Jcnulngs went
husttlv to tlie place. Connors, Slater, uml the
notorious Albert Boeder, alius Enuncll. were
sighted, mid as they attempted to
cfccopo the police fired sundry shots alter them
until thu trio had been safely placed under ar
rest. At the station the two former weru posi

ELEVATED RAILROADS.
Another Indignation Mteotinpfof Wo)!s
Street Property-Owners.
The Scheme Denounced ns an Attempt
to Extort Money.
Another meeting of oropertv-holder* on
Korih Welts street was held last evening at
No. 605 on that thoroughfare, to protest and In*
tllgnaio against the proposed Chicago & Evans
ton Elevated Railway. The attendance was
even larger than that at the preceding meeting.
The assembled taxpayers were called to order
by Mr. Charles Williams, and Mr. Fred Becker
was chosen to prcsLc. lie staled that Uic
Committee appointed at the first meeting had
obtained signatures to the protest against tho
road representing nearly 15,000 feet of property
on tho street.
Tho ticcrotary, Mr. Williams, read a draft of
some reasons to bo attached to tho petition
when it should ho submitted to tho Council.
They were, In substance, asfollows: That, under
the General Incorporation act, the Council was
prohibited from granting tho use of or right to
lav down any railroad tracks in any street of tho
city to any steam or horse railroad company ex
cept upon a petition of the owners of tho land
representing more than onc-half the frontage* of
the street, or so much thereof as Is sought to bo
used for railroad nurposes; tlml, In this case,
no such petition had boon asked for or obtained;
tlml it was contrary to justice, und tho interests
of all classes, for tlio city to divest Itself of the
control of its streets, or conlcr any rights or
casements therein contrary to tho rights of
Urn public; that there were at present
sufficient accommodations and means of
travel furnished bv the Northwestern
Railroad und the street-car lines; that,
In tho opinion of the petitioners, tho incorpora
tors had no bona flUe intention to construct the
proposed elevated railroad, os It would cost a
very largo amount of money, while It would not
yield the slightest profit; that they further be
lieved it to be a scheme to moko monev, cither
by selling the worthless stock, or by obtaining
money from t he railroad add hone-railway com
panies, for which reason the Council should not
aid this dlshoucst scheme. The reasons further
set forth tho Irreparable damage which the
building of such a road would inflict on the prop
erty of the street, und the objectionable feature,,
alrcadv apparent In New York, of passengers
in the elevated railway cars gazing into the sec
ond and third stories of tho houses along the
route, ami destroying any such thing as domes
tic privacy. • Thu granting of this franchise,
even if I lie road were never built, would be
destructive of property values (or the boneflt of
a few speculators. In New York, rapid transit
and more facilities for moving tuc human
throng were necessary, bat oven there property
interests along the lino
HAD BEEN NEARLY RUINED, *
and (rood tenants nad been succeeded by a class
who would cot pay 25 per cent of the former
rciual. The stores had become dark, and
the tradespeople and lodgers were com*
palled to leave mid seek other locali
ties where the unbearable noise and
dirt of fost-movlng trains could bo escaped, and
where daylight was not completely shut out
The soot and dust could not bo gotten rid of,
and to keep clean was on Impossibility, while
the screeching whistle and the noise and roar of
the passing trains sickened the strong and
killed (he sick and the weak. Chicago had
plenty of room inside the limits for Its popula
tion, without seeking suburban homes, and the
common Interest required me build ng up of
the city within the limits. When this
was done, it might bo advisable to
look up means for more room ‘ and
facilities to reach It, but at no time ought cltl
zcn-taxDiiycra on one street to bo asked or ex
pected to saenheo their right ami property for
the benefit of others, without at least (if invol
untary) a fair and Just Indemnity.
Ala. McCormick, who was present, was in
vited to address the meeting, lie considered
thu reasons Just adduced as very forcible.
There was no need here, as in New York, where
the streets were very narrow, and often blocked
bv passing vehicles, for an elevated railroad,
and unless some reasons were adduced to show
the necessity of such a road, ho should vole
against craning the Company a franchise.
[Applause.! Furthermore, ho did not believe
such a road would pav anything.
Aid. Wettercr said that, while be hod Intro
duced thu ordinance out of courtesy to the in
corporators, ho had no Idea It would ever pass
the Council, and he tbouch(ho could assure the
propcrtt-bohlora that incvwbuld never see an
elevated railroad on Nortb Wells street. [Ap
plause.) ’
Valentino Huh said ho had circulated one of
the petitions, and fouud ail the property-holders
he had appealed to unanimous in their oppo
sition to the scheme. All that was necessary to
do now was to goon and secure the signatures
of all, and then present their petition to the
Council.
Kx-Ald. Schwelsthal was Invited to speak,
and Insisted particularly ou tbo destruction of
property value which the building of an elevated
railway would brim; about ( and on the neces
sity of the Incorporators first gaining the con
sent ot tbo property-holders before any serious
attempt was made to
I‘USJI such a ecnsMS.
Tlic following Committee was then appointed
to draw up a remonstrance, embodying the rea
sons above sot forth, and to present the same
to the Council next Monday evening: Ex-Aid.
Scbwelstoal, B. Uerllzbvtmcr, Val Huh, Charles
Williams, Charles Spnngenberg.
Further remarks were ipado by Mr. Williams
and the Chairman, the former insisting on the
law points already brought dut> uud die appar
ent defiance of the law on the part- of these in
corporators In not securing the consent of the
property-holders. Their purpose evidently was,
he said, lo act rccardlcss ol the wishes ol the
property-holders, provided tney knew the law
(and they probably did), and they would, ol
course, bring every influence to bear upon the
members 'Ot the Council In Irving to push
through tlielr speculative scheme, in this con
nection ho suggested that it would bo well to
watch tbo Aldermen and see bow they voted
on so questionable a measure. v
The Committee was Instructed to draw up
tbo petition and remonstrance between this and
Monday afternoon, so that the papers rosy bo
presented to the Council that evening. The
meeting then adjourned.
One of the “incorporators” was present at
tbo meeting,—an oldish, dark-complexioned
gentleman, with little of the capitalistic appear
ance lu bis make-up. Though It must have
been galling to bear Die project alluded to as a
mere speculative, money-making, and dishonest
scheme, be was dumb, lie sat, listened, and
took iioios near the reporters 1 table, but. like a
lamb before his shearers, he opened uot his
mouth. When the meeting broke up ho silent
ly folded his tent and dusted with an air of dis
gust plainly visible on bis physiognomy. And

_ A PARTIAL BLOCKADE
ortlie main avenue for escape of refuse from tho
human system Is utterly subversive of regularity
among the other organs. Let comitfpailon become
chronic, and, leaving oat the imminent danger of
inflammation of tho bowels and their total obstruc
tion occurring. Jnandlco is almost certain to ensue,
the liver Is (table to become engorged, tbe blood
ond urlno arc noisoned by the bile, which also vi
tiates tbe juices of tbe stomach, and other unhap
py consequences follow. Hostetler's Stomach Hit
ters, a prime tonic alterative, prevents or remedies
these results and their cause, as tbe case may re
quire, ond Is also signally cfllcacloue In overcom
ing flatulence, heartburn, and variaolu oa well n»
constipated action of the bowels. It renews nerve
power, Improves tho appetite, stays the progress
1 of early decay, relieves the Inllrmiilca of age, and
is a pleasant appetizer.
