< The deplorable condition of. wmc of the

in the report .of CaptsUn -Lipscomb. which
■was. jsubmittod to thc^Street: Committee
last night. His report only .pave an ac
count of ihc work: done by^the, ten spe
nial employees Jind the' twelve who were
put on come time ago to put -.the streets
in n better conflition. : Stagnant water
on' Fourteenth street and Hull -street dur
ing the Inst few days has cauecd much
comment nnrt may give rise to some trou
ble if the sanitary condition- is not im
proved. *. .
The members at the meeting last night
were Messrs. R. L. Patram. L. B. Til
s<rj'. J« r*- Reams. A. 3i. Hooker. A. L.
Sampson: and W. D. r Fcrpussbn.
The ordinance allowing Woodward &
Son to contrruct -i railroad' track r.cross
Fourth street, at Everett., was laid on
the table until to-flay. when it will come
before the meeting, which Is, to be held
at 5 o'clock this afternoon en the site
where the, track is to be located.
DANGEROUS>TKPS.
Mr. Morris" addressed, the committee in
reference to the steps :whicJi : , lead down
to Belle Isle from J. -Her. ry Brown's
quarry. He wanted either Mr. Brown or
the committee to fix *Ihe steps, as he
thoupht they were dangerous. The at
tention of the committee was- called to
the condition of the steps, once before,
and Messrs. Ferguson and Barrett were
made a committee to look Jnto the case.
Mr. Tillers' wn.s added ;to the comm:tlce
lnst night "and they will, meet Mr. P.rov.-n
at 10 o'clock this mqrr.ins -arid see what
can be done in regard -to improving the
condition of the steps. * - ,'"
Bids were ordered fof.'cut. gravel, the
statement having been^; made that the
supply had given out -and "that a lot was
needed in improving the condition of the
streets.
Mr. Tillcry thought that, the carts did
rot haul enough gravel; at; a timc > nr>d
from his remarks it was. -inferred that
there was delay in the, performance of
fluty on the part of the • drivers. Not
withstanding Mr. Tillery's contention as
to the fim.ill amount of gravel hauled, the
committee decided to advertise for 500
yards fcr immediate use.
. A LITTLE SARCASM.
Mr. Reams said that he had been ap
proached by Mr. A. B. Tyson, who de
clared that when the next grand jury
meets he would go before it and demand
that the streets nenr his home, on Eighth
street, brv improved. Mr. Tyson is a ma
chinist, and his remark' to Mr. Reams is
taken asa sort of threat to some of the
Councilmen. Mr. Tyson will be seen by
the committee to-day and requested to
expostulate as to the statement made
to Mr. Reams.
At- this juncture Mr. Tillery waxed a
little sarcastic as to work being done
on Manchester's thoroughfares. He said
that! there was too much permanent im
pro\-emcnt and not enough temporary im
provement of the streets. He contended
that' the streets were not made to look
too well.
WILL COMPLETE TRIAL TO-DAY.
The trial of Sidney Hilton (colored), an
alleged accessory to the murder of John
Henry Stoke?, will end to-day, unless
nome of the principals become ill or some
thing occurs to prevent the arguments
for and against the prisoner. The in
structions are now in the hands of Judge
Ingram. The entire day was spent by
j\lr. Wing and Commonwealth's Attorney
Page in arguing the instructions. The
prisoner sat in the box. beside his mouier
throughout the entire day. He looked
weary and disheartened, but rarely spoke
or moved his head.

AT OLD TRINITY.
Rev. Doctor. Morrison. Preached With
Great rower — Fine Music.
Dr- Morrison's sermon last night was
based on the fifth verse of the seventh
chapter of Matthew. "And he (Judas)
cart down the pieces of silver and depart
ed, and went, out and hanged himself."
The discourse was an eloquent and forci
ble contention that the principle of sin is
inbred in man and manifests itself even
after the soul's conversion, in an eternal
warfare, raging between the good that the
soul would do and the. old nature,., and
that their conflict 'ceases and there is sal
vation when tne soul yields itself — its will,
affections, desfrcs, its all— to the will of
God's divine spirit.

Golden Text: ""He wholly followed the
Lord."— Josh.' xiv., 11..
As Jehovah- commanded Moses, so the
children of Israel did; they divided the
land. ! i;':
• Then the children of Israel drew nigh
unio Joshua in' Gilgal. and Caleb, the
son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, said unto
him: "Thou knowest the thing that Je
hovah spake unto Moses, the man of God,
concerning me -'and concerning thee in
Kadesk-Barnea to spy out the lam I. and
1 brought him word again as it was m
my heart r Nevertheless, my brethren
that went up ith-me made the heart of
the people melt; but I wholly, followed
Jehovah my GcJ. and. Moses swore on
tha f day, saying: 'Surely the land -p htre
on thy foot hath troddon shall be an, in
heritance to. Thee and to thy children
forever, because thou hast wholly fol
lowed Jehovah, my God,' and now, be
hold, Jehovah hath | kept me alive, as ne
spake, these forty and . five years,
• • * . and now, lo! I am this day. four
score and five years old. As yet I am
as strong this day as I was in the day
that Moses sent me; as my strength was
then, even so is . my strsngth now. for
war, and to go. out and to corns in. Now,
therefore, give me this hill ©country,
wherefore Jehovah spoke in that day;
for . Thou heardest in that day how the
Anakim .were there, and elite'? great and
fortified; 1 it may be that Jehovah will
be with me,- and I shall drive them out.
as Jehovah spake."
And Joshua blessed him: and he gave
Hebron unto Caleb * ♦ * for an >ri

- ALAND QUESTION
The allotments of ihc ProniK«:d Land
to the Israelites, after they had llrtd the
courage and fortitude to conquer ft. is
a matter of great interest. The allot
ments were made by divine direction by
the casting of lots, after the boundaries
of the different divisions ha-i been agreed
upon. In the allotments triba-i inherit
ances and family inheritance.? -were made
perpetual. Each tribe and each faniily
had an absolute title to its own piece
of land. ..-This -land - could&b'e sokl.-only
for a period of fifty years. Aft^r that
time the title reverted bac* to the orig
inal owners or their .-descendants "Thus
perpetual poverty wasj'excluclcd from Ihe
family; yet each person: nitjrht snfl'er for
his own neglect and iclleiess. and tem
porarily lose his property. Thesa facts
afford an instructive s inly in the civic
and : social life of the Israslif-js. In its

Men like these 1 partake -of eaca -other
spirit andr become: coinplerac-nts ni eaj
other. ■ Such men :were Joshua and *~{
ieb. soldiers of God.'-boin'of them.
i Joshua was the greater ai
more gifted v man of the two character
But. if Caleb was a star of not. quite v
magnitude of Joshua; yet the lighter n
character shone with, just as ■ much pu
ity and beauty. Of foreign- extractic.
the ffilh ef Caleb was not hereditar..
but ; wasth» fri-it of conviction, and tm
swayed his -life ihe more, powerfully. I.
religion was born of a free choice.
CALEB'S REMINDER,
When Hhe apportionments .of the Uu
were msae, as the conquest of Cana;
was. ending, Caleb, in the company _i
his fellow tribesmen, who. seconded n. .
petition,'- '-held an audience with Joshu
the leader of the nation, and remind,
him of God's promise to him persona-,
on account of his faithful service as
spy forty-five years before. This pr ,
mise of God had rested in Caleb's bosu
for forty-rive years. How this promt
of God must have cheered his soul ai
strengthened his life in every good c
deavor.
What. ; a pleasure it must have be
both to Caieb and to Joshua to think <
the day of danger and panic when th-j
stood firm for God. We may make oi.
lives such that to look back on them .v.
be a horror, but the one reward of
God-fearing ' past is an old age that
not afraid to opeh the book of remec
brance and, read -what its youth has w.i
ten there. ■
Caleb reminds Joshua also of how Gi
had prolonged his life and preserved hi
strength, so that even in-^advanced ag
he was practically, a j'oung man. Cale
is called the young old man of th
Bible. His experience illustrates the la\
of godliness. A green old age is the nat
ural fruit of sainthood. Even if th
bodies of the righteous become decrepi
their hearts can remain young an
cheery. . They have no cause to despon
or complain. On the other hand, "th
devil has no happy old people." Tru
faith and hope in God keeps men fres :
and strong. True religion •is a well
spring of life. '
CALEB'S PETITION.
Caleb at So years of age did not as?
for an easy place to which to retire. H]
was one of those Christians who want t«
die in the* harness of active work fo
the kingdom of God. and in the forefron
of spiritual battie. He -might have claitr
ed a furlough* from .energetic work ant,
battle and withdrawn" to some fertil
and' sheltered nook on account of hi 11
past arduous labors for God and Israel,
but. not so the fresh and vigorous Caleb
although he was old. He requested «»
hard task. He did not ask for an hon
orable discharge with a national pen
sion., but said: "Give me that mountain
yonder full of Anakim for my inherit
ance, and if God shall be with me I wil!
show Israel a thing or two as to what to
do with; boasting and ungodly giants."
■The natural nobility and force of char
action of the man. and his self-reliance
and undaunted faith in God is shown in
his request. Relying upon God's pro
mise, he desired the honor of driving out
the giants from his possession This wa?
an exceptional L spirit. of- an -old man.
But a Christian old. age should put forth
new buds as well 'as ripe, fruit to th«
last. - None should rest while there are
spiritual giants in their heritage — car
nality, doubts, selfishness. .pessimism, nor
while there, are. wrongs to be righted
and evils to be overcome in the world,
enemies of God to be slain,, and souls to
be rescued from the bondage of sin and
the clutches of satan.
"Send me anywhere." said Livinestone.
"so it. is forward!" This is the mission
ary spirit that conquers the world.
