Hus Lived in Wheeling Sixty Years— A Brief Sketch of His Career. John Eckhart died yesterday after noon at his residence, No. 154 South Broadway. His death was due to the ailments incident to old age. Several years ago he retired from business, and about a year since his health began to fail. He was confined to bed about a week. liis death removes a prominent Ger man citizen, one who has been con nected with the business interests of the city in a modest way for more than half a century. He was quiet and un obtrusive, preferring the happiness to be found in the family circle to the prominence which comes of connection with public matters. His sterling in tegrity commanded the respect, and his warm-heartedness won the esteem and friendship of all with whom lie was thrown in contact. He was a consis tent Christian, a member of the Ger man Lutheran Church, uud u life-long Democrat. He was a charter member of William Tell Lodge of Odd Fellows, and at the time of his death was the oldest member of that organization in the State of West Virginia. His fun eral. which will take place to-morrow morning, will be under the auspices of William Tell lodge. Mr. El khart was probably the oldest citizen of Wheeling. He was born April 20th. 1805. at Wertumberg. Prus sia. and was therefore In his uinety tirst year at the time of his death. He came to the United States in 1824, and landed at Philadelphia. He soon found employment at his trade, and worked for several years for the Horstmans, manufacturers of woven fancy goods. In 1820 he was married in Philadelphia to Miss Barbara Koerner, who died In 1870. Five children, four sons and one daughter, blessed the union. They were William. John. Louis. George, and Hannah. The surviving children are George W.. cashier cf the People’s Bank, and Mrs. Louis P. Salterbuch. Mr. Eckhart came to Wheeling in 1835. and has lived here continuously ever since. He opened a stocking fac tory. which prospered for many years, and gave employment to a number of men until the introduction of improved machinery and the building of larger >-t *>ts urn !<? the business less prollt able. He remained in the business uu- | ,n a few years ago, when he retired on account of his advanced age. Attend tin- Opening of Plate & Hanes, Monday evening. A FLOURISHING INSTITUTION.

JOHN BECKER & CO., JEWELERS AND OPTICIANS, 3527 JACUB STREET. i cm Bin ii Held a Long and Interesting Session, Last Evening. A Resolution Passed Allowing the Schools North of the Creek to bo Reopened Monday Morning, but Those South of the Creek Must Remain Closed — The Second Ward Market to be Opened Wed nesday and Oontro Market Satur day, “Unless Otherwise Ordered." A very important session of the City Board of Health was held at the City Hall, last evening, at which Health Of ficer Jepson was present. The time of the session was largely devoted to consideration of the advisa bility of allowing the schools, the li ' brarv and the markets to reopen, and ■ the discussion was very earnest. Pre | vious to the meeting of the Board three members of the Committee on Markets ' had met and passed a resolution throw j ing open both market houses, while the members of the Board, as a matter of course, were conversant with the ac tion taken at last Thursday’s meeting of the Board of Education, declaring that the schools would reopen Monday, but they only had this knowledge through the press reports of tlie pro ceedings of the Board of Education, the City Health Board not having been consulted previous to the meeting of the Board of Education, nor were they officially notified of the Board’s action after it had been taken. There was a general sentiment among the mem bers of the Health Board that however desirable it might bo to have both tlie schools and markets reopened, to do so might result in the further spread of the disease, and it was thought much better to take all the precautions pos sible until the disease was thoroughly and wholly stamped out. than to risk a continuance of the disorder by hasty ! action. There was also a very decided ! feeling that the Board of Education, in taking its action of last Thursday, had not only usurped the functions of the I Board of Health, as conferred by the Code of the State and the city ordi nances, but had also been guilty of dis | courtesy. ! l lie session or tne Board openea wnn 1 the consideration of bills, and a total of $3S3.77 was recommended for payment. : These bills, added to those passed | earlier in the week, will make about $1,350 of health bills to be laid before Council at next Tuesday’s regular ses sion. The question of whether or not the markets should be opened was then ! taken up, and this carried the schools with it. by general consent, the two propositions being discussed simulta neously for almost an hour. The clerk was asked, as a preliminary, whether an official notification of the action of the Hoard In closing the i schools, or rather, forbidding their be ing reopened after the summer vaca tion, had ben served upon Superintend i ent Anderson, and h" produced the 1 original order in writing, a copy of I which had been served upon the Su perintendent by a lieutenant of police. I This order read that the schools were to he kept closed until October 1st. un less otherwise ordered by the Hoard of Health. Several members expressed themselves as being surprised at the action of the Hoard of Education, in the light of the past situation in this city, and of the great desirability of using every nteaus of stamping out the dis ease. Health Officer Jepson thought the action taken by the Board of Edu cation was not only irregular, but an insult to the Hoard of Health, and said: “If the mover of the resolution in the Board of Education had been as care ful of the public health as he should have been, he would have made some enquiries from the health authorities before offering it.’’ Dr. Taylor took strong ground in fa vor of caution in again throwing open either the markets or the schools, say ing: “An ounce of prevention is worth a good many pounds or cure, in this important matter. The schools might be reopened, and no trouble follow; but if we should have another outbreak of the disease, running into cold weather, the result might be very bad.” For a time there was a disposition to allow the schools to reopen on ihe ac tiou taken by the Board of Education, and shifting to the shoulders of that body the responsibility for any trou ble which might, result, but it was pointed out that if there should be an other outbreak of the disease the pub lic would properly hold the Board of Health responsible for not enforcing its own precautionary orders, and this sentiment was accordingly changed in favor of the Health Hoard keeping en tire command of the situation. ® During the discussion. Dr. Jepson said: “Father Boutlou called upon me regarding the parochial schools, and said he wanted to know my wishes in the matter. I want to contrast this with the action cf the Board of Educa tion. I told Father Boutlou it was my judgment that the schools con trolled by the Church might bo re opened north of the creek, if pupils from the South Side were kept away, and he said he would adhere to that idea.” After a long discussion, during which all sides of the question were examin ed, the following resolution regarding the public schools was passed: Whereas. No case of small-i>ox ex ists north of the creek, and the number south of the creek is rapidly diminish ing: therefore, Resolved. That the restriction placed by the Board of Health on the reopen ing of the schools be removed from that portion of the city north of the creek. An official copy of this resolution was ordered served upon Superintend ent Anderson immediately. The question of the markets was then taken up. and was likewise discussed for u long time. Dr. Taylor again took strong ground in favor of any uu ! all measures esteemed necessary to put an end to the existence of small-pox in this city. He said the Health Board had been endeavoring for six months to stamp out the disease, and the way to do it was to continue the precautionary measures until the last case was off thn books .He feared the Board was tak ing an unwise step in reopening either j the schools or the markets, and gave , his reasons at some length. This stand was reflected in the re- j marks of some of the other gentlemen, j and for a time it looked as though fhe Board would insist upon all the schor ls and markets being kept closed. This feeling was subsequently modified, how ever, and finally a resolution was adopt ed reopening the Second ward market next Wednesday, and the Centre mar ket next Saturday, "unless otherwise ordered." An advertisement to this effect will be found in another column of this is sue. There were no new cases of small pox in this city yesterday, and the gen eral situation remains very favorable. During the early hours of the morning the patient Promt, of alley eighteen, was removed to the city hospital on the Peninsula, and last evening he was •Icing well. During the day the usual number of reports of suspicious cases were investigated by the Health Offi cer, but in every case the suspicions entertained of the existence of new’ cases were found to be without foun dation. Last evening the Health Officer fur nished the following statement for the press: Total number of cases during two weeks in the city. 26 Cases at hospital. 4—30 Released from quarantine. 9 Well, but not releese'i. 10 Under treatment in city. S Under treatment in hospital... 2 Deceased . 1 30 New eases during the past week . 1 Houses at present quarantined. 15 One or two patients will probably be discharged to-day, and possibly anoth er or so on Monday.
