FOR PAVILION ft AT GLEN MILLER PARK PRE- SENTED TO COUNCIL AND REFERRED TO COMMITTEE OF THREE Another $20,000 Loan Necessary Other Matters That Came Be fore That Body. rV All bills were reaa Deiore council and ordered to be paid. The following recommendation was lv "Mr. C. S. Neal: . . .-. -i i i ) "I desire to call your attention to the fact that the sidewalks are often badly obstructed by persons engaged in moving household goods or doing other work in which it is necessary to tansfer goods from wagons into houses or vice versa. This is a viola tion of the law." The police were instructed to see that the law was not violated in this manner. Mr. O. S. Nixon called the atten tion of council to the water that comes from the "Wayne works. It runs over the sidewalk and street and makes it very bad. The Wayne works should see to the carrying away of this water. This ecommendation was referred to the committee on streets and al leys. Mr. Charles S. Neal presented the following motion to council: "I desire to call the attention of council to the need of a pavilion at the Glen. This has become more manifest since the establishment, of the annual ehautauqua, which must now rely upon a tent for protection from the weather. If there were a permanent pavilion, it would not only result in an increased attendance at the chautauqua, but also in bringing a number of other gatherings to the Glen, and would be useful in many ways. It is evident that the traction companies running into Richmond must be interested in anything that would bring more people to Richmond, and that the Commercial club and the park board must also be deeply con cerned in the project. "In view of these facts, I move that the mayor name a committee of three from council to confer with the park board, Commercial club and rep resentatives of the Richmond Street & Interurban Railway company, the Indianapolis & Eastern Railway com pany and the Dayton & "Western Railway company as to what they are willing to do toward its construc tion." This motion was concurred in. The committee appointed consisted of Mr. C. S. Neal, Dr. Bowers and Edgar Norris. The following recommendation was offered bv O. S. Nixon: "I desire to call the attention of council to the necessity of the city having in its employ a man who is acquainted with the sewer system of the city and one who can properly flush same when necessity requires. This matter is usually attended to by Frank Ralston, in a very satisfac tory manner. I would, therefore, rec ommend that he be placed on the regular pay roll of the city at the rate of .$15 per week." , Mr. Genn thought that sin Mr. Ralston never worked more than a whole day during a week, he should only be payed twenty-five cents, an hour during the time he is employed on the sovvers. This was referred to the street and alley committee. The report of the finance committee was as follows: "Whereas, It is deemed necessary and for the best interests of the city of Richmond that temporary loans, aggregating .$20,000 should be ob tained for the use of the said city within the next two months, full au thority is hereby given said mayor clerk, treasurer and finance commit tee to do and perform all the duties necessary to secure tl:e said lorm of $20,000, as the same is needed, from time to time. ti A . i j.i.. uaruner, Edgar Norris." This report was adopted. Your commissioners would most re spectfully request that your honorable body, at an early a date as possible would indicate the action expected and required of us in the matter of preparation for lighting the streets of the city at the expiration of the con tract with the Light, Heat & Power company, September 1st. In our opinion the matter should be taken up at once, poles secured .and thus time given us to have -the new arc line ready for service September 1st. Referred to committee on light. The resolution ordering the C, C & L. Railway company to raise the bridge over Main street was read the third time and passed. GOES WITH LOREE. A. F.

LAMB He Having Purchased the Same at a Sale in Springfield Hlinois. Terre Haute, Ind., Jan. 19. John E. Lamb, of Lamb, Beasley and Saw yer, has always been a great admirer of Abraham Lincoln and for some time has been anxious to secure a good picture of the martyred Presi dent. Some time ago Mr. Lamb was in Springfield, 111., on business and mentioned the fact that he was anx ious to secure a picture of Mr. Lin coln. He was in conference with Messrs. Brown and Wheeler, leading attorneys of Springfield, and Judge Wheeler told Lamb that at a certain store there was a picture of Lincoln which was worth having. He went to the store and found that Mrs. John M. Palmer, widow of the late ex-Governor of Illinois was disposing of many of her husband's effects, among which was a picture of Lincolu pre sented to Mr.. Palmer in 1S63 by the President himself. Mr. Lamb imme diately purchased the picture and had it sent here. It is a large bust pic ture, engraved from the famous Wil liam E. Marshall painting made while Lincoln was in the White House and isaid to be his best picture. Ex-Gov ernor Palmer and the President were close friends, so Mr. Lincoln present ed him this picture, and, for years, it was numbered as one of Mr. Pal mer's treasured relics. Why Mrs. Palmer would sell it is not known; for, to most people, a picture with such a history would be considered almost invaluable. It is still in the old fashioned, deep, walnut frame. but is well preserved. The head of the great statesman is slightly bowed and the face shows all the lines which toil and worry cause. When photo graphed he was wearing a soft bosom, slightly mussed shirt, with turn down collar and carelessly tied bow tie and a coat with lapels thrown back loose ly. The picture now hangs on the wall of Mr. Lamb's office in the United States Trust company's building, close to an excellent likeness of the "Tall Sycamore of the Wabash," the lamented Daniel Vorhees. DEATHS AND FUNERALS. . Dill. The funeral and burial of Mrs. Laura II. Dill will be private. Her friends may call at the home of Mr. M. IT. Dill, No. .114 north tenth street, on Tuesday evening from 7 to 0, and on Wednesday morning from 0 to 10 o'clock. LICOLK NOTED PICTURE LECTURE AT THE COLISEUM THE SLUMS OF NEW YORK CITY " AS THEY WERE AND THE TRANSFORMATION. MR. JACOB RIIS Entertains a Large Audience in the Third Number of the Popular Lecture Course. The citizens of Richmond had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Jacob Riis, in his celebrated lecture, "The. Battle With the Slums," last night at the Coliseum. The lecture was illustrated by stere- opticon views and was a revelation to those who had not read the many magazine articles published about this great reformer. The speaker was introduced by Dr. Lyons, who seemed at his best, and made a very happy introduction. After a few introductory remarks, the lecturer began a description of the slums in the city of New York. Both the stereopticon views and the word pictures of Mr. Riis impressed those present with the squalor, poverty, vice and crime usually found in the tene ment house districts of great eities. The views were real pictures from the slum districts o New - York as they existed not many years ago. He divided the landlords into two classes; those who make twenty or thirty per cent on their money and lose their souls, and those who are satisfied with four or five per cent, and save their souls. The former have been com pelled to remove the crowded and un sanitary tenement house and the lat ter have erected the modern flat in its stead. Some' of the awful dens of vice and poverty have been torn down and on their sites are parks and playgrounds for the residents of the flats. The transforming hand of Christian charity has wrought won ders in the chief metropolis of this great nation. The audience gave a willing ear to every thing the speaker said, and all will wish him God speed in his labor of love for the poor and unfortunate. c. G.yi b.

The C, C. & L. shops are no longer in this city, and W. I. Allen has his office in Cincinnati. The following dispatch from Peru is self-explana tory : Peru, Ind., Jan. IS. The Chicago, Cincinnati & Louisville Railroad com pany, owing to slack business and long continued winter weather, is cut ting down expenses everywhere along the line- January 13 there was re ceived here an order from the office of General Manager W. I. Allen, at Cincinnati, to the effect that the ex penses at the Peru shops must be re duced to the amount of$2,500 a month. This was done Sunday night when 50 men of the mechanical department were discharged for an indefinite per iod. Orders were also received at Richmond to reduce expenses and quite a number of men who had their household goods loaded preparatory to moving to Peru were notified that their services here were not needed. A number of the employes here just moved from Richmond and now most of them are out of work. Work on the new shops has also been suspend ed, and the plans show that they are but half completed. The cold weather has stopped bal lasting on the north end and not un til this is done will the company at tempt to enter its terminals. Busi ness on this road is not good enough to keep the company's splendid power all in use, but at the same time the company refuses to loan its engines. At this point there are ten 100-ton en gines which are not in use, and twelve more recently purchased are on the road to the Peru shops. The Penn sylvania, Wabash and Lake Shore roads, it is understood, have been re fused the use of these engines, not withstanding that they are idle and would each bring $25 a day if they were loaned. ai mama, TREAT PROMISED IN THE LECTURE OF EDWARD HOWARD GRIGGS, OF MONT CLAIR, N.

ASIA ETA FAY SHED Alleged to Have Made Dam dging Statements While In a Trance. Cleveland, O., Jan. 19. Mind read ing not only attracts attention and excites wonder, but it sometimes draws damage suits, as was demon strated yesterday when Anna Eva Fay was sued for $10,000 for a re mark she is charged with having made upon the stage of the Grays ar mory a few nights ago. While in an. alleged trance she is charged with having said things that were not to the liking of Miss Sadie Hainey, who was until recently a clerk in a down-town store. At the performance in question, according to the story told by Miss Hainey in a petition for damages filed in common pleas court last evening, a certain Avoman attended the perforamnce of Miss Fay and asked what had become of a certain pocket-book containing money she had lost some time before. Miss Hainey claims that Miss Fay, while in one of her so-called trances, attempted to answer the question, which had been written upon a small slip of paper. "If you call upon Miss Sadie Hainey, a red-haired clerk, No. 21," Miss Hainey claims Miss Fay said, naming the store, "you will learn something concerning the missing pocket-book. " ICHAELlMREN Who Assaulted Him Remains A Mystery. Michael Warren, the aged flagman who was brutally assaulted last week by an unknown person, is still con fined to his home in west Richmond. Mr. Warren is getting on as well as could be expected but it will be some time yet before he will be able to be out and at least a month ere he can again resume his duties as flagman. The shock .was all the greater on ac count of Mr. Warren's age and gen eral ill health. Strange to say, the police have absolutely no clue, save that the man was dark and about middle height, Mr. Warren knows nothing about the personal appear ance of his assailant. The police have several men under surveillance but none seem to be the right ones. The officers are working hard on the case and hope before long to ferret put the offender and bring him to justice.
