of B. L. Rich are gratified at the result
of the examination by the grand jury.
Tho most careful and searching exami
nation was made by them of the written
testimony of 170 pages adduced on the
examining trial, as well as having many
witnesses before them, and as a final
test they took two physicians, who had
not testified in tho examining trial, and
made a iost mortem examination of tht
deceased's head, which revealed the fact
that thofractuio upon tho right side oi
the head was duo to concussion on tht
left side of tho head and that tho fracture
was general over tho heart, showing con
clusively that tho wound could not have
been made with such an iron as was ad
duced on the trial.

What I Know About Hardware and
City Finances.
Good credit is a valuable assot for
an individual or firm, but strange and
anomolous as it may appear, for a city
it is a misfortune. A city, liko a fam
ily, has many real and imaginary
wants right from tho start, both fami
lies and cities grow, but tho expense
of the latter usually grows faster than
tho income. School houses, hospitals,
oity halls, sewers, paved streets etc.
follow each othor in rapid succession.
Wbatover a city buys or builds, gene
rally costs more than private peoplo
pay for like services. Valuable fran
chises seldom bring the city anything.
Whenever a city undertakes the man
agement of gas or water works, finan
cial failure is the usual outcome. It
don't take the ''fathers" of a young
city long to learn that tho taxes aro
inadequate to mako the "needed im
provements" and they commence bor
rowing. Should any cool-headed
counoilman object, he is voted down as
a "mossback"and "old fogj " When
a city goes in debt onoe, thero is sel
dom any stop to it. It grows like an
avalanche until the city's credit is ex
hausted, tht sooner that point is
reaohed the better for the taxpayer
