HAniLTON NEEDS
SEWER SYSTEM
One Ample For The Preaent Needs of the
City Would Not Cost Very Mtich.-A
Good Thing; Push It Along!
Hamilton needs a sewer system, par*
ticularly in the business portion of the
city, and there is no good reason why
one should not be put in. The cost
need not be very great and the means
for raising the necessary funds is al
ready provided.
A sewage system, ample for the
present needs of the city and which
could be e xtended whenever necessa
ry, it has been conservatively esti
mated, would cost between $5,000 and
$ 6 , 000 .
The necessary funds will accrue in
a. very few years from the special li
cense of $10 that is levied upon the sa
loons of the town. When this extra
license was imposed nearly two years
ago the understanding was that the
money should be used for the improve
ment of the city by the establishment
of sewers, etc. This money, however,
has been diverted for the mainten
ance of the electric light and water
fu nds, which the ordinances provide
shall be raised by a tax.
For the present needs of the city
two pipe lines, neither of which need
be over a couple of blocks long, paral
leling Main street from-First to Third
streets, and with an intersecting line
leading from the court house and Ra
valli hotel, connecting with a main on
North Third street, would suffice.
Besides eliminating all the cess
pools along Main street the sewers
would tap and drain the basements of
the business blocks that are annually
flooded for a period of three to five
months, and which would cut out the
expense of keeping the pumps run
ning night and day.
Health considerations, economy and
a very strong demand for an equita
ble adjustment of the license and tax
burdens of the -municipality are
among the most convincing argu
ments favoring the establishment of
a sewer system.

proposition in any event. Undeniably,
a sewer system is a mighty good
thing for a town to have. In fact, it
is almost indispensable. The most
of the money required would have
to be spent right here for labor.
It would immediately find its way
back into the local channels of trade
an d the local public would be benefit
ed accordingly.
In any event it won't do any harm
and won't cost anything to give the
pro position careful consideration.

Mrs. Gilman Sues for Divorce.
A sad story of domestic infelicity is
recorded in the. allegations of the
plaintiff in a suit for divorce filed last
Monday, wherein Lavinia Gilman is
plaintiff and Joshua C. Gilman iB de
fendant. The parties have resided
on a ranch just below Woodaide for the
past fifteen years. Mrs. Gilman al
leges gross cruelty and habitual in
temperance on the part of the defen
dant as the principal grounds. She
asks absolute divorce, custody of the
minor children, an attorney's fee of
$500 and alimony in the sum of $75 per
month. She alleges that the defen
dant possesses property valued at
$8000. An injunction was issued re
straining the defendant from dispos
ing of any property pending settle
ment of the suit. The complaint
recites that the couple have been mar
ried 29 years and that 12 children, 8 of
whom are living, the oldest being 18
years of age, have been born to them.
It is alleged that the period of domes
tic infelicity has covered the past
eight years, culminating August 13
last when the defendant drove the
wife and all the chilnren off the ranch
and forbid the dealers from extending
any credit to them.
Powell Wants to Die.
Rees Powell,the aged slayer of Chas.
Linscott, is becoming very tired of his
present retreat in the county jail. He
was very much disappointed that he
could not be tried immediately, his
case having been set for trial Monday,
September 29. Upon being arraigned
he plead "not guilty" but after return
ing to jail and brooding over the matter
awhile, he begged the jailor to take
him before the judge that he might
plead guilty of murder in the first de
gree and be hanged and have it done
with. He declares that life has no at
traction for him and that he would
rather die at once than lay in jail.
During the week he sent for the local
newspapermen and desired to give
out a signed statement for publication.
In this statement he charges many of
the lawyers of the state with being
"boodlers." He says that they all
threw him down,in bis numerous cases,
for "boodle," which was furnished by
May Bros, and concludes by holding
them accountable for his present sad
situation. The old man is not grand
stand playing but appears to be terri
bly in earnest and the numerous vag
aries he gives utterance to would
plainly suggest the possibility of men
tal derangement.

"Do you know, I thought yon were
English people," said one woman to
another in one of the parlors of a
hotel the other morning. "Why, may
1 ask?" questioned the woman she
addressed. "Oh, because your hus
band walks so decidedly ahead of you
into the dining-room."
1'his remark, showing the result
of unexpected and unsolicited obser
vation, set the woman criticised to
thinking. She began to observe her
fellow sojourners as they came in
and went out of the beautiful, quiet
dining-room, says the New York
Tribune.
To her surprise, she saw that it
was almost invariably the case for
the husband to pause on the thres
hold and either walk beside hin wife
or allow her to precede him and to
select the seat she preferred to oc
cupy. As a general thing the smart,
well-dressed woman evinced neither
hesitation nor embarrassment, lint
■after one rapid glance which seemed
to take in the whole situation, led
the way with unerring perception of
the nicest spot.
After a day or two of this uninter
rupted proof of what American wom
en do the monotony was hrot-en hy
the arrival of a party of S'.ngH«h
tourists—two men and two wotiien.
The men at once became conspicu
ous; they spoke very distinctly to
the head waiter, bidding him find a
place "away from those heater«,"
said the atmosphere was "beastly
atnlTy," and after they were all com
fortably placed at table the eldest
mnn in the party evidently asked his
wife if she was suited, for she an
swered with a smile and a gentle
voice: "Yes, indeed, dear; yes. In
deed."
EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY SONGS
KnariUh Student« Xot So Much Given
to College Monte ns tha Gee
mao« Are.
The conspicuous senrrity of char
acteristic songs in British as com
pared with German uaiversitios is
probably due to other causes besides
the relative indifference to musical
cultme of llrit.ish youth as a whole,
says the Loudon Globe. The under
graduate of Oxford or Cambridge.,
does not take hino.clf vvitb that pro-,
digioiis seriousness which charaetutC*
lr.es the student of Him a or Jena,
and is not naturally inclined to re
gard his university career as a sep
arate idyllic phase of existence de
serving of a reverent and euthusias—
tic lyrical treatment. His general
nth let ie 1-iys makes him regard ''mu
sical men of a serious east as a class
apart, whose proselytes are fortu
nately few, while on the occasions
when his triumphant soul seeks re
lief in more or less melodious out
pourings, he is apt to find the sim
ple directness of the latest Anglo
American musical comedy fits his
needs quite fully. For these different
reasons, such an attempt as has once
more been made recently to provide
English university men with a sonç
book after the German pattern is not
very likely to succeed. There Is
neither an adequate demand nor a
suitable supply. In Germauy there
exists a great mass of student, songs,
because for generations the taste of
the students has run in that riireo
tlon. In England there are hardly
any songs that have a special suita
bility for university life at all, and
any selections made from songs nt
large is arbitrary and carries little
weight with its intended public.
AN UNEXPECTED TRIP.
WonitcrfnI Nerve and Endurance el
aa Iowa Bor tarried OB br
a Balloon.
Carlton H. Myers, of West Liberty.
Ia., a boy 12 years old, displayed
most wonderful nerve and presence
of mind in a balloon ascension,
where even a man of experience
might have been expected to lose
Courage. An Iowa paper gives the
story:
The balloon was almost inflated
With hot air when the anchor-roped
gave way and it started upward sud
denly with a rush. The spectators
were horrified to see a boy hanging
head downward from the ropes. The
little fellow, boy-like, had ap
proached too near the preparations,
and his foot became entangled in one
of the ropes. The aeronaut celled
out: "Straighten up, boy, but hold
on for all you are worth."
"The plucky lad obeyed, reached
up above his foot, and, catching hold
of the rope, quickly righted himself,
climbed up about eight feet and then
threw hie arm through several ropee
that came together just under the bal
loon; he was a number of feet above
the parachute, but so close to the out
let in the airship that the escaping
hot air and gas almost caused him to
faint. He made the entire trip, about
three miles, hanging by one arm.
"The height which the balloon;
reached is estimated to have beau
about one mile, a distance of 500 feet
higher than the aeronaut intended to
go. They came down in a cornfield
and thus escaped injury.**
