It w reported »hont, the City Hall that
the lias Trustees are getting up another
communication to be laid before Council
at the special session of Friday eveuin/- It
seems that the real object of the Trustees
in desiring to keep their surplus intact was
not ijivea in 'he document presented at
Tuesday'a meeting of Council, and pub
lished yesterday. This reason is all eut J
to be a desire ou the part of the Trustees
to carry into practical effect the mach
Ulked-of proposition to attach uu electric
light plant to the prnseat gas works estab
li-huient. As has betu h» retofore publish
ed in the Kkui.stkr, the Triwtoas estimate
that a plaut affording over one hundred
•«J,IN '(»-candle power lights. can be put in by
the city for about $20,000. These lights
would be used upon the streets, thus stop
ping the very large consumption of
gas by the street lamps, with
a corresponding reduction in operat
ing ex pt uses, and would at the same time
enable th» Trustees to famish electric
lights to private consumera preferring that
mode of illumination, at a rate probably
considerably lower than that uow charged.
This is all current rumor, hut is apparent
ly ha*»d upon something substantial. Am
agent of the Western Electric Light Com
pany, of Chicago, was here Tuesday, in
consultation with the Trustees, who, it
will be remembered, were authorized by
Council, some two months or more ago, to
look into the geueral subject of electric
The '"ifarlwi^e trust" was the èubject of
a good deal ot talk about the City IIall,
yesterday, iu the midst of which the Ileal th
Committee was subjected to .-otue criti
cisms. A gentleman said the committee
hail erred in the matter of letting the pro
posals, notably in that they did not «quire
g<od *od anrticient Itontls to be sent in with
the bids. The whole garbage contract sys
tem, however, has he^n more or lees ot a
fane for years. The entire system needs a
thorough overhauling and reconstructing,
and th" eoooer the committee and Council
addret« themselves to the matter, the
jooner the public will be mtisüed.

"What are the prospecta for the spring
building trad*?" atked a Kegistkb re
porter of a well-known contractor, yeetei
"Well, so far, they are not as good as
many people imagine," answered he.
"There in only one or two large bailding«
io view—the La Belle pottery and an ad
ditional boildiog for the West Virginia
China Company, but there are quite a
number of email buildings already con
tracted 'or and more talked of."
"This ought to be a good year for build
iag, ought it not?'*
"Yes; but I have always noticed that
Wheeling people are a little slow about
letting their contracts, and many are now
holding back to see how the spring is
going to open up. I had contemplated
erecting several buildings myself, but I
waat to see how business will look later in
the seasou before making contracts."
"Are there any other reasons that might
prevent people from building?"
"Yes; several others. One, for instance,
is the prohibition amendment question.
There is a large German population in
this city i.nd the majority of the Germans
are more or less directly and indirectly in
terested in that feature, and there is not a
more liberal, enterprising class of citizens
io Wheeling, or anywhere, for that matter,
thau the Germaua. To tell you the truth,
if it wasn't foi the Oerman element in
Wheeling I would leave the city too quick.
Now I know mauy of our prominent Ger
man citizens who contemplate the erection
of new buildings and extensive improve
ments on others, but they are all holding
back waiting lor the result ol the vote in
November If the amendment is defeated
they will carry out their plans: it it
carries, they wilt be dropped. I do not
cite this as an argument against the amend
ment, but merely to show you what is
keeping these people and their improve
ments in check. I do not presume to say
how prohibition would aüect other bus>
mess, but I do know how oÄrs will be
affected. Then there is another reason for
the prospective quietness in the building
trades, the increased coat of materi.il in
all branches, which, in the aggregate, ad
vances the cost of building to such a figure
that many people are holding e.Q' waiting
for a fall. Honrevcr, whilfl the prewipccts
at present are not just as bright as they
might be, I look tor an improvement before
the scaaou is far advanced."
The N«Il rrn.le.
"How is the nail trade?" queried the re
porter of a manufacturer.
"Slacking up a little," answered he.
"What's the cause?"
' Well; we have got the Western markets
pretty well stocked up, and although the
demand is still pretty good, it is not 50
brisk as it was. You know we can make
lota of nails now in a very short time, and
while »he trade is pretty well supplied, we

A Probability That the Glenn Murder&i
Have Been Found.
Reader* of the Rkoihtku will recollect
the previous publication of the suspicion«
entertained by Officer Meredith, of New
ark, 0 , caneerning the two inen, Kelley
and Christie, in jail at that point for burg
lary of Bird's hardware Btore, at Mt. Ver
non, O, on Washington's birthday.
Meredith wrote to Chief of Police Smith
about the two men, and after receiving a
reply from the Chief came on here hlmsell
to look into the case a little further. His
story made quite an itspreseion npon the
authorities here, and Tuesday Sheriff
ll&ndlao and Chief Smith went to Mt,
Vernon, where the pmoners had been re
moved, to see the authorities there and
hear more folly npon what Meredith based
his suspicions. The Wheelicg men re
turned yesterday, but refused to talk
much about the case for publication, which
was an indication that they thought the;
bad struck something of valac.
In corroboration of this, it was learned
that the Sheriff and Chief came home with«
well-defined conviction that the two men
were connected in a very intimate way with
the tragedy in this city, and there is every
prospect that steps will be taken to briny
them here as soon as some pending ma ten
have been cleared away. A telegram from
Mt. Vernon, iu last evening's Cincinnati
Enquirer, said :
' Sheriff Handlan, of Ohio county, Wesl
Virginia, and Chief of Police Smith, oi
Wheeling, visited this city to-day for th<
purpose of identifying, if possible, crooks
Kelley and Christie, who are locked up oa
the charge of burglarizing Bird's hard wan
store February 329. The men at first
stoutly denied ever having been in Wheel
ing, but being examined separately ant]
alone, admitted to the contrary. On tbt
ltitb of January last two burglars were at
tempting to gain entrance to a store ii
Wheeling when they wire discovered by
Policeman Gleun, who attempted tc
arrest tbtrn, but was shot and killed
by one of the men, who made good then
escape. Authorities of O'no county of
fered a reward of $2 600 lor their arrest.
Kelley and Christie were apprehended at
Newark for the Mount Veiuon job, and
while lying in jail wrote a letter tp a no
torious crook at Tillin, askiog for a sat?
and acids with which to make tbt ir escape,
and hinting their connection with a more
serious afl'ùr a» Wheeling The letter wax
intercepted, and thu strength of its con
tents officials of that city think they can
be connected with the crime. They left
to-night for Colanibus to secure a requisi
tion from Governor Foraker, but Prose
cuting Attorney Gotslial! wired the Execu
tive not to issue the papers until the State
had beeu beard."
Much of this telegram is inaccurate, as
may be apparent to the general reader, and
a good deal is but a repetition of what has
been heretofore printed in this paper. The
telegram is especially crooked in the con
cluding sentence. The Chief and Sherifi
did not go to ColmabtH for a requisition,
as stated. .

The D»y Commemorative of the Le»t
To-day is Holy or Manndy Thursday,
the day on which the Chnrch commemo
rates the last sapper of oar divine Re
deemer, tho holy Eucharist, and the wash
ing of the feet of the apostles. The solemn
consecration of tho holy oils employed in
the administration of the sacraments of
baptism, extreme unction, holy orders,
confirmation, and certain solemn hles-iings
take place on this day. This consecration
is performed by the Bishop, with twelve
priest and seven deacous and suh deacons
as assistants and witnesses of the ceremony.
The mass is celebrated iu white vest
menU, luv« um« the institution of the
blessed Kncliarist is commemorated; bat
after the "(Moria fn F.tcelcis" the hells are
hilent until the "Gloria," in the masses ot
Holy Saturday, in honor of the silenc«: o(
the Savionr during bis passion, and the
i;loom aud nionrniog of his Church for his
sufferings and death.
The priest consacra'*» two busts, reserv
ing one lor the next day when there is no
consecration. Afur mass the blessed en
char ist is carried to a repoeitory, often
called sepnlchre. Mire it remains until
the tiuie of the (<ood Friday service; aud
here the faithful resort, pouring out their
souls in adoration, condolence and contri
tion. The chief alt ir of the chnrch is
theu stripped to remind the faithful of the
stripping of Saviour, and thealiandonment
in which Christ passed the night liefore the
day ot His death. In Rome, the stiippiog
of the uliars is followed by the washing of
the feet. The l'ope washes the fe«t ot
s une poor person in imitatiou of his Divine
Master at the last supper, and in many
churches of this country the same custom
is carried ont.
To-morrow the precious death of the Di
vine Redeemer will occupy the attention
and arouse the devotion of the Church. It
is the most sad and solemn day of Holy
week. The Chnrch n in mourning. Her
words are woids of sorrow and compunc
tiou. The officiating clergy appear in
Mack vestments, and prostrate themselves
before naked altars No mass is said; nc>
MCridoo ottered. The holy sacrameut is
brought back from the altar cf repose
where it is placed the day before, and re
ceived in one kiud by the priist. No
sthers receive holy communion, except the
priest who celebrates the office, and these
in danger of death, to whom the vaticum
is administered. Oa this day prayers are
offered up for all men; Christians, heretics,
lews and pagans, because Christ died for
ill; even for the salvation of those who
died his blood.
<>a Good Friday also takes place what is
called the exposition or adoiation of the
cross. When the prayers for all conditioLS
t)f men are ended, the cross, which, until
this time, has been covered with black, is
rx posed to view and kissed by clergy and
people. When the priest holds up the im
»ge of Jesas Christ dying for ns on the
;rott>, and when the priest and people kneel
äown to kiss the representation of the
wounds in the feet, it is an act of love and
faith in a crucified Redeemer. R>a*on,
religion, and the impulse of contrite hearts
leads us forward, as in all ages of Christl
inity they have lead forward. Pope*,
kings, scholars, sainte, kneel and kiss the
instiument of redemption, the cross of
