All hopes uu expectations were more than real ized in the performance, and the ver dict of press and public strongly in clined the theory that here was an other Adelaide Neileon. The young gin uaa never witnessed a perform ance of Romeo and Juliet ; she had never been encouraged to witness it. for it was felt by her management that some day she would be called up. on to take up the role, and when she did, they desired that she should brine to the impersonation an originality of conception which had had no oppor. tunitv of mental bias.

The minutes of the last meeting were read by the clerk and approved. Liquor petitions of Geo. Turuer.for Cowan Hotel, and J. J. Ryan were granted. A petition signed by Citizens Wat son, Buchanan and others objecting to Robert BarneUe and Phillip Williams keeping over throe cows within the city limits was read. This petition was presented by Attorney H. C. Wat son, who addressed the council in em pliatio terms, requiring them to en force the cow ordinance. Mr. Barnette replied in his own bo- half and showed as far as possible that his dairy, situated on Belle Aire, was not a nuisance as far as cleanli ness was concerned. Dr. C. H. Jones, city health officer, argued against the keeping of even one cow within the limits on the ground that it was detri mental to the health of the city. Mr. Wilczinski closed the discussion by moving that the whole matter be referred to the next regular meeting ; carried. Attorney Bell, representing capital ists of Memphis, asked for the main taining of a gas plant in the city of Greenville, and that the city give the . . .i gas plant a cnarter allowing .mem two years' time before commencing operations if company deemed sucli a course advisable. Mr.Wilczinski raised an objection as to the time of opera tion, stating that the company should commence operations at once, if grant ed charter, and that time of twelve months be granted company to com plete plant and commence operations. Mr. Blum opposed action on tne petition until it could be consmerea, as the rate of charges for lighting in the franchise might be too high. Mr. Blum moved that the petition be re ceived and that an investigation De made 'thoroughly at a special meeting in which to discuss the matter. It was moved that the 17th be set for the date of special meeting, and the petition was referred to committee on HglitF, to the city engineer and attorney. . Mr. C. H Starling then appeared before the council representing Mr. S. R. Dunn, asking that certain lots be stricken from the assessment iun.. Petition was granted. A proposition was made by tne rvitH Lioht Company to furnish tno city with a 25-horse power motor and install same for pumping the sewer age at a cost of 210.00 per mouth. A member of the council asked tne size of the present motor used by the ., ana me son and get all data and propositions ne naa to mape. Tne motion was carried and Mesrss. Taylor, Blum and Wilczinski were appointed on the committee. The question of the condition of the city's sewerage was taken up and discussed by the city engineer, Capt. Hider and Mr. Gaboury. The discus sion showed that the sewerage was full of water and the only thing to do was to keep the pumps going to hold the water down while the river was at high water stages. The engi neers assured theV council that they would at least possbile expense do everything possible to keep the water down and the sewers in operation. The petition of Mr. Scheskj and others for water on their property in the race track addition was brought up and continued until the next reg ular meeting. The petition of the Paepcke-Leicht Lumber Company for a track to their yards was presented, but it was shown by the clrek that the same had been granted at a former meeting. The assessment of $5,000 against the Anuheissuer Bush Co. ,of St. Louis, was shown tu be erroneous and said assessment was ordered stricken off the rolls. The bid of Pat Latchre for paving sidewalks at $1.50 a yard was the only one received and the .council held that it being only ten cents cheaper than the cement bids, the bid be rejected. Councilman Wilczinski then moved that the city engieer together I with the street suprevisor employ the necessary labor and put down the walks of the city. Motion carried. Mr. Sam Finlay asked the consent of the council to construct a hose tat shed on corner of court house square for the protection of residences in his part of city. Councilman Taylor said that he bad a cart shod out there, but Mr. Finlay claimed it was for the use of the Goyer Co 8 hose real, and they needed one that could be had in case of emergency. Referred to fire com mittee. Petition of the colored K. of P. Lodge be relieved of assessment on property on grounds that it is a char itable institution granted Petition of Delta Light, Power ana Manufacturing Company asking to establish grade, etc., for placing track on streets as soon as material arrives was presented. Councilman Wilcziuskki asked how the road ex pected to get on Washington avenue with their tiaek when one road is ar ready down the center of the street. Mr. Hider, president of the Delta Company, replied that he was unable .if the press was brought into the city it would be assessed at $50,000 or a tax of $700 only about $500 more than it now pays the city ; but that when consideration was taken of the rights and privileges these people and others are entitled to in the way of streets, lights, waterworks and sew erage connection, the cost to the city would far exceed the income. "We did not go there to save the city tax ation," said Mr. Blum, "for we tried to purchase, as Mr.Wilczinski,,know8, the property on the railroad. But we failed and this was the most suitable. Now," lie continued, "there is Dr. Wialker, whose property will be brought in that is now in cotton,(and turning to Mr. Wilczinski, he said,) juu bMia piupwJlf DU vinyl nable, Dr. Walker will trade you it I for the Wilczinski Park Addition, foot for foot. So if yon want to bring in the compress, bring that in also, but don't tax the city to an expense where there will be no revenue derived." ' Councilman Wilczisaki arose very quickly after Mr. Blum ceassd speak ing, and in a commanding tone said that lie wanted Mr. Blum to under stand he could not bulldoze him in that way; that he would break his, (Mr. Blum's) neck if he tried it; that the compress would be assessed at $100,000 and not $50,000; that the' in come of it would be $1,400 to the oity ; that it would be required to pay a p.-ivilege tax of $150.00 beisdes; that a you were on the council it will not be taken into the city. Is this oonslstuncy ?" . ', . ' V , The question on adopting the re port waa oalled and the vote taken, whloh resulted In a tie. Messrs. Blum Taylor and Watt voting" Nay," and Messrs. Wilczinski, Tilford and Wort ham, "Yea." The mayor then east . tne deciding vote which was against the report. Hia Honor said that nothing would deter him. If the vote was to take the compress alone into the oity and leave ont the cotton fields, he was not just then in a position to say how he would vote, but the fact, as shown him by the en gineer, to bring into the o'ty the com press, the report, if adopted, woild also take in 40 acres of cotton fields, and he did not consider it right and fair, but said it would not hold good before the courts ; that he beleived the compress and improved property can be taken in without the unim proved lands, and if so, his opinion and vote might be different, but as the report came now before him he could not see it to the interest of the oity and he voted "Nay.'1 THE BANNER FUND For the Elks "Cotton Pickers" Grow ' ing Larger.

Mr. ttil Ciinski then said that since two eom piuies wanted the work of pumping the sewerage, the council should be just to both, and moved that bids be advertised for, to be submitted to the next meeting of council ; carried. Mr E N. Thomas appeared before the council on behalf of the Ladies Cemetery Associations asking that water mains be ruu to each of the cemeteries for the care, protection and beautiflcatioj of these Silent Citiei of the Dead. Mr. Thomas held that while it mav not conform to the char ter, still it was right and there would never be a protest raised against it. Councilman Wilczinski said that lie wnnld oimose it on the grounds of be lie WOIUU termine that. The question of how much of the street would be taken up by the two trucks was then calculated, and other questions concerning the rights of city and company in the matter propounded, and on the sugr gestion of Mr. E.N. Thomas, the com pany's uttorney, after showing council that all the company asked iu their petition was the establishment of a grade by the engineer and in this the council was not liable or bound by any contract, it was referred to the enigueer and entire council, to go over and lay it out, on a day ntmed by the tuny or. Mr. J. V. Bell brought before the council the petition, presenetd at last meeting, of the property holders liv ing along Washington avenue, Pop- ing mega., im, .. " . . . T, uu..Blion was dis. II Hi. I i - - cussed by the counoilmeu and citizens and it was decided that bonds to the the committee in their report tried to fair to all ; that ho did not own the Wilczinski Addition, but that it waa the property of his brother and sister, but as a councilman, if the members thought it should be brought into the oity, it would not influence his vote. He told Mr.Blum he was not only the president of the compress company but( one of i(s largest stockholders, and as a stockholder he should not vote as a councilman on the question. Mr. Wil czinski closed his talk by saying that a company that paid its stockholders 80 per cent, on its investment should not kick on being brought into the oity and afforded the protection of the city it now receives. Turning to Mr. Alum he said: "You, Mr. Taylor and Mr. Watt voted to give the compress city fire protection wheeu the press is outside of the city limits, making it illegal for the tire department to go there and iu case of a fire iu the city it would make city legally liable to property owner if said property was destroyed by the fire. It is well known to the council that 1 endeavored to bring the said press into the city last year and repeatedly tried to do So, but was told by you all that so ling Some apprehension is ' being ex pressed in the Delta because of the present stage of water and . the pros pect of a possible break ni the levees, when the full volume rushes down the Mississippi Chief Engineer Dab ney of the Yazoo-Mississippi levee district, has submitted a statement of the condition of the Mississippi levees in the northern district to a promi nent member of the board. " It is cal culated to allay all present anxieties. Mr. Dabney states that no matter how 'much water' comes nor at what seasons the levees will not have any thing like the fight of 1897, because they are vastly stonger now than they were then. In the nppre divisiion o the system the line of levees is from three to four feet above the high wat- 1 . n.yV rt 11207 y llia . .anainn of St. Francis levees below Memphis greater height for an equal volume of water can be expected, but the Arkan sas line is much weaker than that on this side and is sure to break first. Below Friar's Point the district has about seven miles of levees that are only one foot above the high water mark of 1897. The remainder of the lines in the division are two feet higher than the heaviest stage of water. The water that will have to be contended against is in this lower division depends chiefly on the resis tance of the White river levees on the other side. The "Ward Lake Line" constitutoB five out of seven miles of the lowest grade in the division, but it has been so strengthened as to be able to resist heavy floods. Along the Mississippi lines there is a substantial banquette that adds greatly to the strength. Vicksburg Post.
