Os that day they will be ealled upen to vete yes oras upon a prupeltles to baud the city ia the sum of ,IN tor thl pur pose of building a much-needed city hall. For a quarter of a century past. the city government has bees practieally witheut an abeidag plase and a hem, and as for having pseper feermmedateme thl care et Is p spety-well, they have had ane. seside. ths. Vrgieala City hba had as pabis ball werthy el the same during the samie length of lme, an old. ram* aheebled, tumi-det ws boetdas new knewm as Armory hall, havies by the grast of good luck, done duty as an as samay reem without eausdag serious damage, altheah ca nmany ooceasoen timd elk tea l many a serve"e thril ra through them as the old shack weoud ahake under the racket as a hundred cauples or as et daseers weuld 'hatther the lute" at a St. Fatrickas r same ether holiday ball. The matter has been carefufly eensidered by the seall ever asnes the municipal electios be February. and the citsiem have been theroughly sseaded as to their views ep the matter. Yet It was only decided to present the matter to the voters by a coup .re maim on the part of one of the aldermen, who was getting tired of so much talk and as little action, and moved at the last meet lug that the matter be aubmited to the quslified voters of the city on the lat or June., and It was so voted. As the cous ell mets on the evening ct the td, we shall soon know whether we shall have the hall or not. The chances are that we will, although there are a great many who overlook the advantages to accrue and only keep in view the addition that it will make to their municipal taxes. Quite a ripple of excitement was canued here last week on the receipt by James Mitchell. a prominent member of the A. O. U. W. here, that William t. Reed, who diasappeared from here seven years ago, was at Aroa, this state. When *eed disappeared he was a well-to-do mtesr, and the season being over, he aes, as usual, to Virginia City, vbited his iodge, laid in ame winter supplies and returned to his hore at Summit, where be had some winter diggisga. The nett thing learned hee of him was his disappear sac., and the last placs he was see was between Neah Armstreng's Doaoaster raneh eand Ie Rod. beaded toward the latter place. It was afterward supposed that he had accidentally falles late the river and was drowned. No thougkts of suicide were entertalned, as he was ap paretly a man of well-balanced mind. posmed of stening integrity, and the Standard is informed that he was even then enpgad to take shares of the mians of Major Heary Rulig the following sea son, So great was the repeet In which he was held by his fellow ledge membese that they kept him In god standing far two or three years after his disappear aces in the hope of hearing something of his fats. PFinly, the conclusIon was ar. rived at that his was one of three belles which were Ashed eat ot the Jeferess river about " miles below where he was supposed to have fallen IS. It is a sin gular thing that Mitchell, the man who recoevd the meseage, is the emly en* i the country who esoud not, through all theme yeass, wholly believe that -a Reed was actually gone to the "Sweet WRe sad Prank Blair Pest Ne. . 0.

This Is the tenth day of court term. and although a good deal of business has been transacted. but little of it is of In terest, except to the lawyers and liti gants engaged therein. A celebration case was brought up this afternoon, how ever, which will probably fill the court room for a few days. It is one in which Charles Zelgier of the Zeigler Hot Springs on 3ig Metel. seeks to recover cash and damages frem Sheriff Halnes for some eattle sold under execution in favor of Judge M. H. Lott of Twin Bridges. There are said to be U or U witnesses from the inwer end of the three valleys to be ex amined, including the plaintiffs family. some of whom are on one side and some en the ether. Zeigler's suit Is based upon his elaim that when the cattle were sold they were not his property. but that of his susm. From present Indicatones, I Judge that there will be some tall swear ing during the progress of this case. Bob Smith, would-be populist congress man from Montana, is limbering up his oratorical organs before the district court. W. M. Fergus. general manager of the Jefferson Valley Trading company, was Is attendance at the district court this week. The prospective candidacy of George F. Cope of Butte for the state treasurership on the democratic ticket has been the subject of some discussion here and both the county papers give him a wood "send off." Fred, as he is familiarly called here, was one of the pioneers of the ecuntry and will doubtless get the back ing of Madison county in the conven tion. The news of the release of George Par ker from the state Insane asylum was received with surprise by a good many,' who have not yet forgotten the horrible tragedies causing and resulting from the outbreak of his Insanity last summer.

Odd Feels Ab 'et the Revenue. Prem the New York Journal. Statistical tables are not supposed to OrWeeke mirth, but the business man who can read the latest annual report of J. J. Crewley, supervising special agent of the United States treasury, without laughing aleud or smiling to himself must be some tlRng more than human. What business man would pay a collecting agent SIo to collect p? What business man would run a branch store year after year at the less of thousands of dollars? The United States treasury does all these things and mere, fer it often spends $1,306 to collect U1, it maintains branch ofces that never have and never will pay the cost of run ning, and what Is more, It hires agents to maintain offices from which It never reeilved a single penny. In order to propetly appreciate the fun In Agent Crowley's tables, it is necessary to knew that the average cost of collect ing W1,US,51I during the fiscal year 1135 was 4.1 cents per S1 collected. Now at aths. the only port In Alaska. It cost WH,343 to collect 312,317, the cost to the government being S1.43 per dollar col lected. At Annapolis. Md.. not a vessel entered or cleared, nor was there any entry of foreign merchandise, but 304 doc umeats were issued to vessels and 33.4. was collected at a cost of 35.35. or W3.61 pw dollar collected. At Burlington, N. J., $0 was collected at an expense of 3154, an average of x.3.. While passing to the next place of higher cost it would be well to stop for a moment at Great Egg Harbor. N. J., and congratulate the two United States oftcials who, during the past year man aged to collect 6131.13 at a cost of only 8111.31, the rate of expenditure to receipts being only as 5'6 to 1. The statistics of Teche (Brashear) La.. are most bewilder 1ng. Three foreign vessels entered and seven cleared: 257 coastwise vessels enter ed and 31 cleared: there were six entries of merchandise and an documents issued to vessels. Yet the receipts of the office amounted to only 323.0. and to collect this three ofcers, at an expense of S$. 479.10, were required, making the aver age cost of collecting a dollar not less than u150.14. At Natehes. Miss., two men were paid $5600 to Issue four documents to vessels and to collect 31 1^. This mad. the averag' cost $f4 .74 per tl.'ar collected. Another curious fact shown by Agent Crowley's table Is that there are a con siderable number of ports of entry at which not a cent is collected. Thus, at Beaufort, N. C., two oficilals were paid 1,$53.0 to Issue 171 documents to vessels. But as no vessele entered or cleared at that port, as there were nether experts nor imports, it is difficult To understand the nature of the business. At Ken*e bunk. Me., although no vessel entered or cleared during 1iU, three men were paid UNi to Issue 17 documents, which lsat the rate of p34.3 per dollar. At Tork. Me.. no vessel entered or cleared, no documents were issued to veseels. there were neither export. nor receipts. Yet a deputy eel lector was employed at a salary of -i to hold. down the ofioe chair. A Tree Orewleg is a ship. A tree growing In an abandoned ship is one of the odd features of Suisun bay, ene of Calitersia's tInand swamps, that are dignified with high-sounding geo graphical names. The tree reaches up from 10 to 0 feet above the deck of the sloop, while its roots are probably sunk In the mud underneath. What the name of the sloop was or the length of time it has been lying in its present/ poeltion are things past Lading out. When the vessel was in good shape she was a craft of about 0 feet to length and eIght feet beam. When abandoned she was hauled onto the mud at high tide, and has since sunk se deep ee to become immovable. The place where the hull Is stuck is what would be ealled good "tule land," as there is a Lae growth of that reed in the vicinity. The bottom of the boat has rotted away. and they have formed quite a growth Inside the kll, large numbers of them poking through the hatches. A peculiar thing will be noticed In the growth, and that is that they grow straight up as stUf as a bayonet, instead of having the grace full sweep so common under ordinary conditions. How the tree came to grew in the boat is a mystery. but most likely the seed blew into the old hull from some of the trees on the surrounding hillsides. Close examination would be a diicult and disagreeable matter, but seen from shore it appears to be a specimen of live oak.-Uan Francisco CalL Time is Mesey.
