The oity secretary and his effioient
deputy are preparing an elaborate re
port of tho reoeiptsand disbursements
of the city for the fiscal year. Tho
report will bo ready April 1st. It
will be published in pamphlet form
and distributed among the citizens.
John Fee, than whom a more ac
tive and zealous janitor never lived,
says lrom tho appoaranoe of tho floor
of the blue room that all the reformers
wore tobacco user. It is said that a
shirt front soiled with tobacco is a
badge of American aristocracy, and a
floor frescoed with tobacco is an inev
itable oonoomitant of a gathering of
young Americans.
Tho wild varmint that haB been
haunting the western portion of tho
oity, called at tho city hall last night
and filed complaint against Tom
Brown and George Barnard for keep
their hounds confined so closely to
their kennols that it (tho varmint)
can't get at them.
The city attorney has been em
ployed in a "cause celebre." Tho faots
are these: Mr. Lingly was sitting
lately with a coterio of gentlemen at
the MoUlelland hotel, and oaoh were
relating hair breadth scrapes and mov
ing adventures in flood and field.
Mr. Longley stated that ho went
hunting in Virginia end was aocom
panied by a very fine pointer dog. A
fino fat quail flow up before him,
whereupon he fired and toe bird
dropped into a poud where a la.ge fish
was basking or the surfrco, and the
bird liko Jonah disappeared in tho
fish's oapaoious mouth. Mr. Longley
oontinued hunting and lato that after
noon camo back to the point whero the
fish had swallowed tho bird
in the morning. His dog came to a
dead point with his poso towards tho
same old fish who was plaoidly float
ing on tho water with one eye olosed,
the picture of a woll fed happy vene
rable senior of the pisoatorial tribe.
He fired and killed him, his dog re-

the quail ho had killed in tho morning
and he was heartily onpaged at sup
per. Tho trial will bo held tomorrow
before Judge Alex MoCullooh. De
puty United States Marshal Tom
Wright appeared for tho prosecution.
Duko Durham, Wirt Brown and Dick
Gordon arc witnesses for tho proseou
tion. Mr. Brown says tho prosecu
tion has a prima faoio oaso, booauso
while it is truo that all liars are not
from Virginia, that all Virginians are
liars when it comes to stories of
hunting and fishing. Mr. Durham is
a Kentuokian, Mr. Flint and Mr.
MoCullooh are Texans. Mr. Wright
is a itopublican, so it will be seen that
the case will develop muoh ornamental
frescoing of the truth. We feel
and believe that our oity attorney will
do himself oredit even with suoh op
ponents, and they will find Lim no
tyro when it comes to relying on the
imagination for faots and bold de
partures from the eternal rectangles
of veraoity. He has procured attach
ments for a large number of witnesses
from Virginia who are expected to ar
rive tonight.
A dog belonging to Mr. K. A. Mo
Kinnio was killed this morning by
Officer Crowdcr and others, supposed
to bo aflltoted with the rabbics. The
animal had bitten several dogs on tho
streets and it is said a gentleman
walking along tho street wrs attaoked
and slightly bitten on tho hand. Tho
dog was roaming ovor the businoss part
of the city yestorday and was engaged
in numerous fights with members of
his tribe who are probably infected
now with the dread hydrophobia.
