The Western Nail Amorlttlnu Mwt» In K«(ul«rSiiMiua, Vvilertlity. The regular mouthly weetiug of the Westeru Nail Association was held at the Monongahela House iu Pittsburg yester day. The meeting was called to order by Presidence Vance, and alter the trausac tiou of some routine business, adjourned at 2 p. in. tor dinner. Their were eight een tii ma represented. The advisability of formiug a pool with the Kastern people to regulate the output and the selling price of nails, was dis cussed. A representative from the East ern tirais was preseut. No detiuite action has yet been taken iu the matter, some of the Western people beiug of the opinion that such a scheme is impracticable. Some of the members advocate a general conven tion of thenail manufacturers throughout the conntry. Tlie present card rate of nails, was uuder discussiou, and a change in the card may he decided upon before the meet iug adjourns. An Associated Press telegram received at an early hour this morning says: "The Western Nail Association met to day to consider the s.ale ol prices and tlie advisa bility of forming a jiool of K-iateru aud Western mannfact art rs to regulate produc tion aud pru.e. All. Flick, of the jvvsteru Nail Association, represented the manufacturers at the meeting, but no pool was formed as the members were unable to agree on a basis. A pool upon the basis of restricted productiou watt talked of, and pretty generally favored, but was laid over without adoption. By tins arrangement the producers will be allowed to sell at h jp owu price, but he would be required to uoutlue his production to a staled numlier of kegs per year. A scale of price« which is an ad vance ot er preseut rates was then made up and will he acted upon at the next meet ing. It is uot known, however, how much of an advance is proposed as the members refuse to say anythiug about it. POINTS OS i'KOPLK. Mot eiuviit« of l'ttiicui anil tbe foiuing anal Ooiut u( StriiiiK«»'».

OouECil Adopts the Paper, and Work Will Begin in braest -Miscellaneous Mmi The ww r>oanl of Public Works, as is tue custom of the country, appeared in Council last night with an ordinance amending and re-euacting the previously existing paving ordinance, and Council, after some little hesitation, adopted the document. It is understood than the Board will meet this evening, advertise for pro posals for doing the work in contempla tion, and start right in to putting down the new street« over which hart been so much wrangling, at a corresponding loss of eligi ble paving weather. Below the proceedings will he foand in detail: Second Branch, At 8:30 o'clock Mr. Miller arose in the Secoud Branch and called the members to order, moving that Mr. Gmsetake the chair. Uoll call showed but twelve meui liers present, and the Sergeant on duty was sent after absentees. In about ten min ute* a quorum was obtained, and business was proceeded with. When the report of the Committee on City Prisou was read Mr. Harrell called Attention to the absence of a report from the keeper of the City Prison. It had al ways been customary to send this report to Council and have it there read, ami he wanted to know what was wroug. Mr. Allison, from the committee, reply ing to Mr. Harrell, said the report had Ijeen made monthly to the committee and ac companied said report to Council. If Coun cil desired to hear the paper the clerk could read it. Tbe paper was found and showing 19 prisouers June 1, and 3J received during ing the mouth, making 5*2; of these tbe time of 19 had expired, 3 had beeu releas ed by the Mayor and 12 by the Sergeant, leaving 18 iu prison July 1.

The followiug w:is also read: — Whkki.ino, W. Va., July 12. At a m etiug of the Board ol Public Works, held July II, 1*87, it was on mo tion ordered that the followiug communi cation l»e transmitted to Council: To Ute Hon. Mayor nntl Council'. UKNTLKM kn :—We beg leave to report to your honorable body that upou a thorough examination ot the ordinauce appropriating certain sums of money to this Board for certain woik, aud the tust of the work set torth iu the said ordiuance, we are of the opiuiou that it will lie im possible to do the work without modifviug | and changing tli£ ordinauce. That, WllKHKAt?, Tlje kuui of money appro priated for each separate part of the work is insufficient to complete the work accord ing to the ordiuance; and, WhkhkAN, Said ordinance gpecitjen that any deliciency iu the huium appropriated shall be paid from the "contingent fund" | of the Board; and, WnKRHAS, It is necc.ss.iry that said I "contingent fund" lie at the diipocul of the | Board for the payment of necessary ex pen dilute* for cltaniug and repairing the | streets, alleys, sewers, etc. ; and Whereas, Said ordinance makes no| provisions lor any sewers or curbing; there fore, be it Raolrtd, That this Board comwsiuicate with Council aud ask that said ordinauce Im; auieuded iu *o far as it relates to the Board of Public Works, no that the Board cau use the "coutiugeut fund" for neces sary cleaning aud repairiug of streets, al leys, sewers, etc., and providing for neces sary curbing and sewers aloDg the line of | streets to l>e paved. Kimtlml, That we recommend 1hat such I ordinance l>e amended so as to read as per | onlinauce herewith submitted, which ordi nance we respectfully ask be substituted I for that portion of the ordinance applying to the Board of Public Works. •iMKpniiniij, Board ok Pi uuc Works. Jap. H. La nc astir, Clerk. The accompanying ordinance was read. It ia the same as the ordinance now iu fori"*, except that it contain« a clan.« to the effect that it there should not be suffi cient uioney to complete said improve ments, the Hoard «hall ctase work, when the money runs ont, until next year, and ulso provides that the improvements speci fied shall include sewers and curbing. The woijs, "and a« much more as ma> lie nec Btwary.*' arc also added alter the amounts set aside tor the completion of the various pieces of work. Alter a shoit discussion President My les, of the iUtard, was called on, and addretMcd the Braueh, poiuting out tbe changes above indicated. He said the words, "and as much more as may be necessary," were put in to save the contingent fund of the Board. That fund had now been cat down to $7,000 or $8,000, and that sum ought to be reserved for street cleaning and contingencies. He said the season was very far advanced, and because of that and the lpw stage of water iu the river, he doubted it much could be done. If Couu i-il persisted in it* loituer course. it was hardly worth while to have a board, as it would be confined to street cleaning. Mr Allison moved that th«ordiuance be printed for information. Mr. Caldwell said he believed there had beeu a decided change in public sentiment tie thought the public uow desired the oaving of Maia street f»on» Twe^t.etli p> Twenty fourth, and he hoped tbe wishes of be Hoard would be acceded to, aud work J lowed to go on. Mr. Harrell was dispose«! to combat the irdinance, lor the reason that it was calcu ated to dump all tbe money into 00« bole, md somebody won Id thereby get left Alte« 4 )i#je wrangle between Mr. Har- ' «11 and the Chair, ihe ^ae-tion was put m Mr. Caldwell's motion to print, and ii vas negatived. Tbe question was on tbe second reading rhau Mr. Harrell gave notice that unless be thing was explained U) him h# would bject to a second reading. Mr. Caldwell •egged tbe indulgence of Council while be trayed with the member from tbe North ' Ind. He then made au earnest appe^ in 1 somewhat h ask y voice, and the result | ras that Mr. Harrell weakened and the , ecoud reading went 00 for about a min- , te, when Mr. Allison raided a cry for j printed copies of the old ordinance, by wh'ch members could make a to tu pari sou. A few were found, and the Clerk went on. There being no amendment offered on the second reading, the ordinance was read » third time by its title and passed. STREET SIGNS. Mr. Caldwell offered a resolution in structing the Board of Public Works to put up street signs of steel, of a pattern accompanying the resolution, on lamp post* and buildings at the corners of inter secting streets. Adopted. STREET EXTENSION. A petitiou was read from Dennis O'Learv and seventeen other citizens of North Wheeling, asking that Coal street be extended from Third street to Jona than's ravine, and to raise and improve the bridge over the ravine. Referred to the B P. W. RESOLUTIONS. A large number of resolutions were adopted. Among them one by Mr. An l»er, providing for twiring away the para pet walls on the Main street stoue bridge, and iron railings substituted; by Mr. Steger, providing for repairing the wharf, aud the extension of the present brick roadway to the whartboat; and by Mr. Jaeger, providing for a telephone at the crematory. Adjourned. first Branch. This Branch went to work early, His Honor, the Mayor, presiding, and disposed of the only business on the table, concur rence in the amendment to the Electric Light ordinance sent over from the Second Branch at Tuesday's session. A recess was tbeu taken for about an hour, and then, the B. P. W. ordinance having come over, the Branch reconveued.with Mr. Delbrugge in the chair, and heard the ordinance read. On the second reading Mr. Tracy moved to strike out "Eotf.street, from Eighteenth to Niueteeth, and Nineteenth from Chap line to Eoff," but withdrew bis amend ment for the present, substituting for it a motion to strike out the words "and so much more as may be necessary," stating that be did not want to see any body robbed. It was only a trick. Mr. Gavin wanted to know whether Mr. Tracy represented the Second ward alone or whether lie was working for the inter ests of the whole city. Mr. Tracy thought the member from the South Side hod "a good deal of gull" to come up from a ward which had two paved streets and question him. A uurnber of memliers thought the ordi nance was all right, and hoped it would go through. Mr. Tracy called for the ayes aud noes on hisinotiou to strike out, aud the motion was lost; ayes 3, noes 10. Mr. McGregor then moved to lay the ordinance on the table and order it printed The motion was lost; ayes 2, uoes a. The ordinance was theu adopted. Mr. Caldwell's resolution relating to signs was amended by striking out the word "steel" and by giviug the B. P. W. authority to look iuto the merits of other signs as well a* the samples submitted. Some miscellaneous business was trans acted, aud this Branch theu adjourned OFF THK TRACK. A Kreljflit Train ou tlie^Pwkjr" Jump* Over A Hank. An accident occurred on tho "Pwky" road, at Windsor Station, about twelve miles above the city, yesterday afternoon, which might have resulted in Ions of lite. Workmen were eugaged at that poiut in replacing the old rails with new ones, and made preparation for the passing of the regular scheduled freight train. When it passed they tore up the track and were about to lay a new rail, when iu the dis tance they noticed another freight coming They had been given no instructions re garding its coming aud were totally uupre pared for it. However, they did the best they could, vn bich was to hastily lay a rail in the place of the one taken up, but la-fore they could spike it dowu securely the train was upon them, the engineer evidently not knowiug the condition of the track. When the wheels struck the newly laid rail it spread out and the locomotive was derailed and shot along oo the ties for some distance pulling the six freight cars which composed the train after it. After tearitur up the track for quite a good distance the engine took a leap over a ten-foot embankment, the cars following it and piliug themselves upaliout their leader iu tine style. The engineer and hrakemeo, »hose names were not learned,were both injured, although not seriously. The engineer was the woist of the two. A wrecking train was sent down from Steuben ville and woik meu were engaged, last eveuing, in clean ing up the wreck. The eugiue was not liadly damaged, but several of the cars were pretty well smashed. The train was a wild one and the workmen are therefore blameless in the matter. KJ..IU-N IJl'IIA KDT.

Lord, charged with obtaiuing goods tinder fal.se pretenses from John A. Lash, took place before Justice W. H. Davis, at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The prisoners were brought down from jail, where they had been confined, by Officers Dunlap and Short«, and were confronted by Mr. Lash in Justice Davis' office. Mr. Lash detailed the circa instances under which the watches were obtained, stating in substance that Lord and Vancleve bad come iuto the store some time ago. but had made no purchase at that time. Mr. Lord acted m spokesman. In a day or two Mr. Vancleve came back, and said Lord was to receive $1,100, and that he would cer taiuly buy oue watch, and probably two. Ota Thursday, the last day of Jnne, Mr. Lord obtained a watch ou the promise to send a check on the morniug of the Fourth of July. Something was said about a watch for Mr. Vancleve, and one was selected, and at Mr. Lash's suggestion the ticker was hung up ou the repair board to lie regulated, to be taken on tbe Fourth. Mr. Lash, in making a price for this sec ond watch, had agreed to take an old watch, previously bought by Vancleve, back. Early on the morning of the Fonrth Vancleve came into the jewelry store aud said Mr. lx>rd had gone out of town but would be hack in the evening. Vail cleve also said that Lord had got . bis $1,100 and would pay for both watches. Vancleve asked to be allowed to take tbe secoud watch upon this representation, aud Mr. Lash gave it to him. Tbe men dul not again appear at the store, and after waiting a day or two, Mr. Lash took legal steps to recover his property. The more costly of the two watches, obtained by Mr. Lord, and pawned at Frank's, was produced and identitied by Mr. Lash. Invited to ask Mr. Lash any questions he might de sire, Mr. Vancleve said all that Mr. I^ish had said was ^rue. Officer Stufi', of Bridgeport, detailed the V nif.luL'ii ,1 ml o».i,t liw nriannpr had iusisted bit« name was Hart. The prisoner tbeu made a statement to the effect that ou the week pre*ion* to the Fourth lx>rd told hiru he wished to buy a gold watch, and that he had $1,11)0 codi inn to hiin from Clarksburg. Am a ft iend of Mr. I.ash's, he took Mr. Lord mto his place of business to look at a watch. He told Mr. l^ash ahout the $1,100. l.oul had told the prisoner if lie took a watch he would buy oue for the prisoner also. Lord selected a watch, and the prisoner firmly believed the money was iu the bank of Wheeliug. Both watches were charged in Lord's name. Alter the watches were obtained, I/ord told the preioner he had sent his watch to Chicago, aud asked to carry Vaucleve's watch, and the latter handed his ticker o\er. He had never saw either of the watches from that day to this. The prisoner never received oue cent ot the money obtained from either of the watches. I-ord had told the prisoner to call himself Hart Lord came here from Chicago, aud the prisoner met him last summer in a picture shop in the second story «»fa building at the corner of Twelfth aud Market atr«vU. Vancleve strenuously deuicd that he had any idea of crook ft] ucaa iu the whole transaction. In Pitteburg, Vancleve asked Lord what be had done with the second watch, and l<ord told him he had forgot ten it, and lett it in a vest in Wheeling. The followiug note was shown the prisoner. Mr. John A. corner Tenth and Mitin street h : DkakSir:—lieft the other day logo out on the road ou business. 1 have got the money for the two watches, aud will pay you for them both afUr my return. Mr. Lord paid uie the money to give you for the two watches. N. H. Vanti.kvk. Mr. Vancleve said be bad never seen the note before. In his opinion it had been written by l/ord. Just litre Vancleve said the name of Lord was a fictitious one. His real name was Hughes, but he had gone nnilerthe nauieof lioothright last summer, when witness had first met him. I<ord was then brought into the rooiu aud the warrant read to him. The prisoner, represented by Col. Arnett, pleaded not guilty. Mr. Lijh then related so much of the facts as applied to Lord. He said, iu response to i|ueKtioim that nothing was aid about $l,lt»0 by Mr. I-ord, aud no mention of that sum or any other wan made in bis presence.
