' The annual election of officers for the South Side Improvement associa tion was held last evening the choice being Adolph Blickwedel, president Hans Koll. vice president; Matt Von Pein, secretary; and Anton Stolle, sec retary, all of whom were re-elected. Toe directorate of the association in cludes several who were on the board during the present year and is as fol lows: Adolph Blickwedel, Hans Koll, Anthony Stolle, John Hanseman, Conrad Zwlssler, John Knollenberg, Hdward Temme, and B. A. Kennepohl. The annual reports will not be made until after the first of the year. Three factory propositions were considered 'but no action taken other than to re fer them to the factory committee for investigation. . In the re-election of the officers and directors of the association, the mem bora showed that they had the utmost confidence and faith in the ability of the men behind the guns to wisely pro mote the affairs of the association This confidence has in no wise been misplaced in the past, as the associa tion has rapidly developed that section of the city, and it gives promise of making even greater strides in the fu ture. First Payment Made. The association gave a check for f5,000to the Industrial Realty company -officials, to be given to the National Automatic Tool Works, as the first in stallment of the $20,000 bonus for lo catlne in Beallvlew. The work on the company's new quarters in Beall view was reported, showing that rapid progress was being made. Although the association has not as yet raised the amount of the bonus to be given through the sale of lots, yet $19,100 has been realized from this source. ,'The entire amount will be raised before snrine. according to the officials There were a few lots sold during the nast- week. The cold weather has handicapped the officials In this work The factory propositions presented Include a Cincinnati firm which man ufactures multiple wood boarding ma chines and employes about 75 men; a Cincinnati shoe factory and a proposi tion by Isham Sedgwick for the manu f acture of power wagons, which Mr, (Sedgwick invented. Each of these propositions was turned over to the factory committee. Want Another Factory. Members of the association would like very much to locate another facto ry in the South End, although Just at the present time the association has its hands full. The Cincinnati wood factory, which is known as the M. M. Andrews Com pany, desires to know what induce menta could be offered, such as facto ry sites and bonus. There are two buildings in the city which would be desirable for this factory. One is the building formerly used by the Row lett Desk company, and the other the Overall factory building on South Seventh and H. streets. The report that the overall factory will move away was denied today by the manager. The shoe fac tory employs a large number of men and it is believed to be a promising factory. Mr. Matti. formerly living east of the city, who is one of the prin clpal stockholders in the concern, was in the city yesterday investigating the possibilities. He inspected the Row lett Desk Factory building, North Tenth street, but dees not favor this site because there are no railroad fa cilities. If this factory locates here It will be on either the Pennsylvania or C, C. & L. railroads. Mr. Sedg wick's proposition appears to be a good one. He plans to manufacture large wagon, propelled by steam, which would be serviceable lor farm and heavy hauling. work A HEW YEAR EVEIIT The Knights of Pythias lodges of this city will hold open house on New Years afternoon from 2 to 4 o'clock in rh K-of P. temple on South Eighth street. ;; The affair will be a union of the three Pythian lodges of the city.

Coroner Bramkamp was called, pronouncing death due to natural causes, most probably heart failure.

The Nicaraman con gress is assembled in extraordinary session at Managua today and this is believed to presage the abdication of Zelaya. At the meeting of the board of works this morning the final hearing fo- the widening of Center street in West Richmond was held. The board has had considerable difficulty with tDe improvement of this 3tre?t. Tlu Dunn heirs allege that by the widen- as of the street their property is damaged to the extent of several hun dred dollars. Some time ago the board granted $216 benefit but it was asserted by the heirs to the estate that this was not satisfactory and they demanded $390 more. This morning the board granted them $100 more benefit but it Is not thought that this will settle the matter, which will probably be carried o court before a satisfactory agreement can be reach ed. The Dunn heirs allege that a well has been destroyed and a cistern damaged by the improvement. The street will be widened l0 feet. The improvement is a badly needed one, It is said as Center street Is rap idly becoming one of the most prom inent thoroughfares on the west side. The board at its meeting this morn ing also made a $300 payment on the new west side hose house, which is under erection at the corner of Lin coln and West Fifth streets. Work on the structure is being pushed with all possible haste and will probably be f'nished by 6pring. It is said. The foundation has been laid and work has commenced on the erection of the walls.
