Since it is almost an assured fact that WelliDgton will be called udod sooa to vote bonds for the purchase and improvement uf the waterworks system and the construction of an electric lighting and puwer plant, the question of a popular loan and the probability of the citizens of Wel lington subscribing for the entire issue, becomes one of absorbing in terest. The popular loan idea was ad vanced by Councilman Pitts at the council meeting Monday night. He thought it would be a grand thing for the people and a big advertisement ror the city if the entire proposed issue (about $79,000) could be taken by home capitalists. The law says the bonds shall not be issued in denomi nations of less than $10 nor more than $200, and shall run for a period of not to exceed twenty years, and shall bear interest at a rate not to exceed 6 per cent pr annum. There was on deposit in the three banks of . Wellington, according to their l ist published stateDents,$37, 0I20:, sulvp'ct to check. This money is lying more or ls idle in the banks? and drawing no interest. The entire issue could easily bj takeu by people livirg right here at home, and the people would receive the interest on tlio money as well as the benefit aris itrg from municipal ownership. There is hardly a person in town who cou'd not become the owner of a bond 0.' some denomination or other. The bonds could be re idily converted into cash -it any time ti.tir owners desire to part witli them. While Ute condition of the money iiHiktt in the cist is such th.it bonds can apparently bit (1 latcd at from 4 to 3 per cent, there is some question as to whether "original" municipal own ership bocdi at less than 5 per cent would find a ready market. There fore, there is little likelihood, in the minds of some, t hat a bond issue can be successfully floated at less than 5 percent. And if the bonds are to bear 5 per cent interest, there is no reasou why the entire issue cannot be sold td Wellington people. Mrs. C L. Crookham and children came up from South Haven this morning to spend a week visiting her sister, Mr?. Will Keuneke. , After RIi Recreant Wife. J. T. Perking a bollermaker of Shawnee. O.T.. was in Wellinuton Saturday looking for hU truant wife and two children. He claims that Joe Green, a boilermaKer, who until last Friday was an employe of the isaota Fe round house at Ibis place, alienated her affections. Terkins says his wife left her home in Shawnee last Wednesday or Thurs day. She arrived in Wellington Thursday, and was met by Gieen. Green had rented and furnished a house on East Lincoln avenue three doors east of the colored Baptist church, and they went to living to gether as man and wife. On Friday Green became frightened and that evening he aod Mrs. Perkins and her two children left over the Rock Island for Fort Worth, Tex. Before leaving, Green sold to Claytor & Pfeifer about $6 worth of groceries be had purchased tne day before, for $1. Greea and the woman and children had left town none too soon, for the next morning Perkln3 arrived in Wei lingtoD on a search for bis wife and babies. lie learned from Officer Sbdwver where they had gone, and a telegram was sent to Fort Worth notifying the authorities to arrest them.

Council Meeting. ine city council met in regular monthly session Monday An ordinance was passed giving the county commissioners the right to c instruct a sewer from the new j til and court house through the alley and across streets to the sewer at thp rear of the old Phillips house. 1 lie tramp petition circulated h Agent Williams of the Rock Island was taken up again. The Police and Public Buildings committee was in structed to proceed to build a stock ade on the rear of the city's lots up on which the city jail is located, and a rock pile will be established. The Police and Public Buildings com mittee was also Instructed to build ii new city tool house 011 the lots. Councilman Pitts introduced a reso lution condemning the curbing and guttering on Washington avenue. Harve.- avenue and Lincoln avenue in the business section of town, and ordering it repaired. The resolution was passed by the council. .Councilman Pitls read a letter from Chas. Terry of Westerly, It. 1 , saying that tiie owners of the waterworks would take $"0,000 in cash for th plant, but did not waut tbe city's bonds. Perry '-uggested that tin bonds could be sld in Un'cigo at si premium for 4 per cent. Mr. Pitts thought the bonds ould be floated at 5 per cent here at home, under a ponu 1 ir Jo in. Tbe mat ter will be talked over more thoroughly at a future meeting of the council. The street and alley committee was instructed to proceed without further unnecessary delay in the work of grading North Washington aven ue. The council decided to lay a brick crossing on North Washington aven ue from the Racket to Frambers & Brumley's grocery, as an experirent. It is said that brick crossings are practically Indestructible. If thev are found satisfactory, a gool many street aod alley crossings will be re built with brick this fall and winter.
