Mr. Wright, a member of the committee, said he was ready to meet any time and that a meeting was not mentioned until the erening before (Tuesdaj ). It developed that Mr. Ruope is chairman of the committee. President Huer instructed the committee to hold a meeting and make a written report at the next meeting of the council. It seems that there is so wide a differ ence between the council and M. M. Mor- alee as to the value of the land on which is situated the water works that con demnation proceedings will be the nec essary outcome. The council decided to visit the property so as to le in a posi tion at the next meeting to intelligently pass a resolution stating that proceed ings are to be commenced and just the description of the land necessary for water works purposes. The bid of M. It. Goldswortby for iron water pipe at f 22.75 per ton delivered in Hancock was accepted. The matter of opening Michigan street across the Mineral Range railroad track was referred to the street committee. TLe street committee was instructed to advertise for bids for extending Hancock and water works street across the rail road track. D..S.S. &A.R.R. Time Table: In effect April 27189.

Obleago, Some of the dodgers circulated by the so-called "Calumet Hoard of Trade" claim that "C. E. Iwis & Co. are worth one million dollars." That may all be true, hut the nuestion naturally arises, how are they connected with tbe so-called local boards of trade or is that firm of millionaires personally responsible for these local's engagements. Another dod ger issued by the same concern says "This is not a bucket shop." The dodger should go on and state further it it is not a bucket shopwhatit really is. Intryiog to ascertain what a bucket shop was we have been in communication with the sec retary of theChicago Hoard of Trade and Messrs. C. A. Wb. viand 4 Co., members oi that board, who, by the way, decided to advertise In the Evening News, so that anv one wishing to speculate could do so with persons amenable to the board ol trade rules, which tbe local so-called boards of trade certainly are not.

For a government with three co ordinate de pirtmcnts, of which we boast, we are mak ing a strange and rapid movement to wards re-establishing the royal preroga tive In the hands of our executive as an uncontroluble power. If any British con stitutional power was destroyed In Amer ica by the revolution in 1770 lt was the prerogative of the crown. If the presi dent, acting alone, can substitute the en tire body of the laws of war for the laws of peace which now govern our relations with Culm it is In vain that we abolished the royal prerogative In ear fed eral constitution.

In the moment of their enthusiasm for a decree that would be so just and so hu mane the people would forgive the usur pation, but the shock it would give to our free government would lead in time to great disaster. In the present state of political agitation In the country It is dangerously apparent that a declaration of war with Spain or a declaration of the ex istence of a state of war in Cuba, inado on the sole authority of the president, would create a fever of excitement In the country that would remove all other questions now unilur nnxlniia riiaciisuinn from the ml nil a of the people and would control the presi dential dirt ion now near at hand. lias tonne Faith In the President. "I am firmly convinced that the presi dent will not venture on so dangerous a course when congress disperses leaving our relations to tnis sudjcci in ineir pira ent equivocal situation. AfU thn nlmimf unanimous declaration of both houses of congress that belligerent rights should le accorded to Cuba and that war exl?ts there, If we disperse without giv ing relief to our people from this situation we can find no excuse for abandoning them to their dreadful fate, except that we are ready to abdicate our power In favor of the supposed jower or wishes of the president." ThA norm tor a little further along savs: "Neither Spain nor the president, with the armies and navies of both countries and the aid of the civil power given the presi dent under our laws, with the terrors of Spanish cruelty or the aid of our polloe' and the Spanish police and thePlnkerton's' in our ports, have been able to prevent the carrying of men and munitions of War from the Uulted States to Cuba.

'The plea Is urged for the delay of further action by congress ma m iworbi tlon of belligerence merely will give rise, to new complications, and that if we do anything lt Is wiser to recognize the inde pendence of Cuba and leave lt to Spain to declare war for that course, If she resents such a course.

Although Iudian children have their games and good times as well as their more civilized brothers and sisters, they also have much hard work to tio ana are taught to help their poor tired mothers almost as soon as they learn to walk. One of the principal duties of Indian children is that of supplying their camp cr village with water. These camps are always near a river or stream, for of course wandering tribes oi Indians can not have wells or cisterns, nnd from the river the children must carry up to the lodges all the water used in cooiung. In this work they call to their aid their playmates, the dogs always plen tiful in Indian villages. To tho collars of the dogs are fastened two long, light poles, one on each side, that drag on the ground some distance tenina mem. uu these poles, about half way to the ground, is fixed the kettle or earthen jar that is to be filled witn water, ana uieu the dogs are driven down to the river. Some of the larger boys nave ponies, n which th-v attach heavier poles in hp ame wav that the light ones are fastened to the dogs, and on which they can carry as much as a barrel or water at a time. At the river side tho children have great fun while filling their various jars and kettles. Thev duck and splash each other, run. scream, laugh and often for get entirely that tbe village is waning for its dailv sunnlv of water, until the shrill voice of some squaw mother warns them that they are neglecting tneir amy, and If thev do not attend to it at once they will have to suffer the conse quences.

Just think of it I The actual num ber certainly appeared formidable, but au investigation would no doubt prove tbat what she really had to learn was a lesson of fair length. The secret of study in the higher branches is to read the pages assigned slowly and carefully. making mental note oi or maramg u rnn dnrfl not trust vour memory those parts which you feel uecd to be learned by heart. You will no astouisnca ni mo shortness of the list. Ouo reading will fix the incidents of ten pages of history well in mind. The dates and names would not fill half a page. The same is true of spelling. Suppose your teacher gives you two or three pages from " Evangeline" or a history or gwgraphy. The way to learn the lesson is to select the words which have silent or double letters, those iuvolving ei or ie. Learn that list and you will have accomplished what your teacher intended you to do.
