CITY FINANCES. ;LKRI BOWBRS' YKAlUY STATE*EXT OF THE CITY'S FINANCIAL CONDITION, bin a ?«7 Creditable Stowing, th* D*bt Boug R«dMtd th« Paat Y«ar Considerably—A Summary of ÜM Statement The yearly statement of the City's finau Mapto January 1st of the present year, im been completed by Clerk Frank Bow tra and will be laid before Conncil at its lext meeting on Tneeday evening. The itatement ie, indeed, a creditable one and ihows the City to be in a better standing inancially than for a number of years past, rhin is greatly due to the tact that the collections have been much closer be past year and that the loan of 1885, which provided for the taking up of the 536,000 balance of the 1871 loan, gives the city ^the use of that amount, while the interest on the '85 loan is paid jy the Gas and Water Boanla. The Committee on Finance in making their calculations bad concluded to sell the Court House and Market street proper ty, and in making up the appropriations placed the estimate on these properties it |20,000, all over that amount to go into the coutingent fond. After wards they thought it best not to sell this y far, which still leaves the $*20,000 to their credit and besides the debt has been re laced over ££2,000. In comparison with last year's state ment, some interesting reductions in de partments are shown. For instance, m the Gas Board the debt is cut lown from $12,453.03 to $3,609.79, a re duction of $8,843,24, while the Water Board has this year $32,534.05 to its credit, igainst $4,609-79 last year, besides paying M 4,000 interest on bonds. The Gas Board tlso paid $5,700 interest on bonds. Under the new system of conducting the ïity's finances the expenditures cannot sxeeed the receipts, as the Fi nance Committee make« the ap proportions for the various departments the first of the year, and the Clerk cannot iraw an order unless there is mouey to pay It, and the Committee cannot appropriate money unless they see their way out. It throws more work on the Clerk and Re ceiver, but it works to much better satis faction than the old way, and each depart ment can tell at any time exactly how much money remains to its credit. Following is a summary of the tabula ted statement of the expenditures and re •eiDts for the past year : EXPENDITURES FOR 1886 Board of Publie Work* : Contingent Fund $25,398 Ten cent levy ...... 13,800 00 Appropriation fund 36,965 52 9 76,163 88 .'emeteries 1,616 yö i^ty prison 4.455 .">8 Tty Gas Wortes 72.1X9 18 City Water Work» ....... 24,755 il fire Department — — 22.633 (jö Health Department 3,631 64 Lights 15,137 16 Loans, interest am! expense of 34.622 IM Markets 4.019 36 Police Department 19,265 71 Heal estate 2,175 28 Salaries 8 600 C4) scale« and Weighing 90107 Sundries, including all expenses out of contingent fund 17,237 38 »U8.707 51 Receipt» in excess *>( expenditures Reduction of city debt 32,709 11 I SHI.416 62 I RECEIPTS, 1886.

The damage vas very slight, but the youug man had lis hand iqjured a little. TUE WOMAN'S EXCHANGE. Ifs Kueveit In Furnlablug Help to Familien. For over two months the Woman's Er ?hange and employment bureau lias been n successful operation, and in that time >ue hundred and twenty-five persons have ipplied for help both in and out of the rity. These want« have been met in a sat isfactory manner, except in a few in stances. One of the lady managers said: "We do not claim perfection, nor do we :laim to furnish perfect help lor imperfect people. We have not yet learned the character of all the applicants oor of the homes we are trying to beuefit with efficient help. But we do claim, that with the co-opera tion of the women of this city, to be able to set tie the vexed problem in a reforma tion that will lead those wishing help to lirn at a higher degree of proficiency and lead careless housekeepers to be more care ful in their training. Experience has shown us that there are two sides to this question, and reformations are loudly ■ailed for on l>oth sides. We have on our l>ooks an honored roll and a questionable roll. Girls who cannot give reference and persons who do not know how to treat servants need not apply at the exchange." T1IE IirXGE FACTOKY FIRE. The Damage by Water Heavy—1The Iqhut ance Carried. The destruction of a portion of the Wheeling Hinge Company's works by fire Saturday evening, and the heavy damage to the extensive stock by water, caused much regret all over the city yesterday when the facts were fully made known. The exact extent of the loss cannot be as certained until the stock is examined, but the percentage will be heavy, as every thing will have to be rehaudled, dried, polished and packed, involving ranch extra labor. The machinery is also badly damage«! aud will very likely have to be refitted. The warehouse, factory, machinery and stock was insured for $4.'?,(XX), of which firuount $30,000 is in foreign companies. Of our homo companies, the l'ealtody, Franklin, German, American and Fire und Marine had policies of |2, '>00 each. The fire department is praised on all sides for the good work done, the Hinge Com pany giving public expression to their thanks this morning in another column. A Narrow Encape. Charles Van Keuren, the restauranter, had a narrow escape from fire at his Eleventh street residence Saturday night. All duriug the night the house was filled with an odor of burning wood, but no fire could be discovered. Yesterday Mr. Van Keuren called in Foreman Rickets, of the Hope, and an examination of the premises showed that the timbers below one of the hearths were entirely burned away, leav iug the bricks unsupported. The house is a new one and the fire is supposed to have resulted from bad carpenter work. Off for Charleston. The rush for tho Stat« capital has com menced in earnest. Editor Hart, of the Inklliyencir, and Mewrs. Randolph Stal naker, Col.

The Senators and Dele gates from the other counties aloug the river will also leave to-morrow, together with a large number of politicians of both parties. Natural Gas Escaping. Tli® line of the West Virginia Natural Gas Company sprung a leak at the stop cock, corner of Market and Fourteenth streets early this morning, and gas was escaping at a pretty lively rate. The gas had worked its way over to the gas post and had ignited from the light, making quite ablaze and break ing the glass in the lamp. The office was notified, but as no bands were there noth ing could be done.

A FINE EFFORT. iN IMAGINATIVE WRITER CONCOCTS "A REMARKABLE CASE," .locating It ia the Wildi of Ritchi« Oouoty— Genor&l N«wi frum The Interior of the State. The Frederick, Md., AT«r« has the fol lowing: "A remarkable case, in which a wo rn'« lost speech vu suddenly restored, las occnrred at a small town in Ritchie xranty, about twenty raiies from Parkers mrg. Ten years ago Mrs. Ada Martin Yactured one of her limbs so severely as » cause permanent paralysis of it aud de prived her of her power of speech. During :he period of her affliction she has been nakiug crazy quilts and endeavoring to get patches from prominent men. Presidents Hayes, Garfield and Arthur sent her patches. Mauy Senators, Army officers uid other notables have favored her. A lay or two ago she received a patch from President Cleveland, with his compliments »utographically expressed. Her pleasure at the event was so great that she jumped up suddenly, and in doing m knocked a revolver to the floor, causiug it to be dis charged. The ball entered* the paralyzed limb. The shock removed the paralytic effects and restored her speech. The Baltimore ifun'n Oakland corres pondent says: "A little over two years ago the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com pany commenced sinking au artesian well at Deer Park Hotel for the purpose of ob taining a good supply of fresh water for the hotel and cottages. ^At twenty-four feet below the surface hard rock was encoun tered, and from the time the workmen struck it until Monday they have reached a deptq of two thousand feet. After going beyond the usual depth for fresh water wells without obtaining a supply, the work was continued ih the hope of strik ing natural gas or some other product which might become profitable. After the holidays, when the work ia resumed, the process of "shooting the well" will be gone through with. The dynamite cortridges for that purpose have been procured and are on the ground. How much deeper the company will Bink this well or what the result of the undertaking will be no body seems to know?" There is a report in circulation ui»i mi Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company ha« purchased the I*roctor farm, near Pied mont, which was fortnerly owned by the late Wilson Proctor, of Baltimore, who sold it several years ago to John Bradly, of Cincinnati. The Proctor farm is a valua ble piece of property, and lies between the town of Oakland and Big Youghiogheny river, adjoining Oakland on the west. The B. & O. road runs through the property, and it is said the projiosed road down the Youghiogheny will councct with the main line at this point, where extensive shops will be built and other improvements made. Another report says that the com pany proposes to lengthen the divisions, making only three divisions between Balti more and the Ohio river, instead of four, as at present; that Piedmont will lie the end of a division, and the Proctor farm will be used for the erection of extensive shops, made necessary by the change. It looks as if President Hatry and his West Virginia Kailroad Company mean business, and that their proposed road from the Pennsylvania line via. Morgan town and up Decker's creek to Newbnrg, may be built speedily. Chief Engineer Barrett and a surveying corps were in Fairmont last Tuesday on their way to Morgantown to survey and locate the line of the road, and the Morgantywn Dominion says that they began active work on last Wednesday moruing. Mr. Hatry says the work of construction will be commenced as soon as the engineers get the survey made, and that next summer will proba bly see the road completed. The building of this line will no doubt stimulate the B. & O. company to extend the F., M. & P. through to Uniontown to eonuect with its Pittsburg branch there, thus giving Mor gantown two direct lines to the Iron City. On last Monday morning the workmen in the B. & O. blacksmith shop at Grafton were honitied to see a man staggering pant the shop with his faceand clothing stream ing with blood and a red stream pouring from his mouth. When opposite the door he fainted and fell in the snow but was quickly picked up by the men aud carried inside where everything possible was done to relieve him and a messenger sent for Dr. A. S. Warder, who soon arrived and in a short time stopped the hemorrhage. The man was an entire stranger, 110 one even learning his name, anil was very weak from loss of blood. A collection was taken np for him by the men in the shop, as he claimed he was in destitute circum stances, and a snug sum of money was handed over to the stranger who left town on a train bound for the east. David Hickman and William Koby, of St. Mary's, have been "mad" at each other for some time. On last Monday night David went to church. On his way home William Blipped upon him and began to attack him with his fists; whereupon Dave pulled out his pocket knife and sailed in to make sausage meat out of Will. The conference was brief and animated. Wil liam received several severe cuts, losing considerable blood, but is not in a danger ous condition. On Wednesday the case was brought before Squire Barron, who bound Hickman over to answer an indict ment for cutting Roby with a knife. The formal opening of the new State Houses at Charleston, last Wednesday evening, with a ball, was one of the most successful society events ever occurring in West Virginia. Many visitors from abroad were present, and all will bear testimony to the success of the brilliant occasion. The music was furnished by the Columbus Barracks Band, and the repast was spread in the State armory, it being gotten up by Hawk Bros. I-ast Tuesday evening at Jackson school house, about four miles from Cario, liitchic county, Silas M. Hoff, a school teacher, wm very severely stabbed by a man named James McGhee, aged 18. There had been ill-feeling between the men for some time, bnt how the last ouarrel broke out is not definitely known. McGhee made bis esoape into Ohio. The latest from Hampshire is that many wild hogs inlest the mountains in some parts of that connty. It ia reported by good authority that one man, living in or uear a place called Egypt, in the southern part of the county, has killed sixty of them. They are said to be so ferocious that parents are afraid to send their chil dren to school on account of them. A girl named Westfall, an inmate of the Braxton connty poor house, made a nar row escape from being burned to death one day this week. While standing in front of a grate her clothing became ignited, and it was with difficulty the flames were extin guished. She was considerably burned, but not seriously.
