NOTICE OF AN INJUNCTION.
Yesterday Louis Conrad, who owns
real estate between the Thompson place
and Woods’ run, along the pike, served
notice upon the Board of Commission
ers of an application for an injunc
tion restraining the Board from pro
ceeding with the work of building a
stone wall as a retaining wall for the
pike in front of his property, Mr. Con
rad claiming that the wall is on his
private property. The old wall is in
bad shape and partially down, and it
was the idea of the Commissioners to
so erect the new wall as to widen the
pike about eight feet at that point. The
matter will come up on Tuesday.

; MUSICIANS AT FAIR GROUNDS.
Annual Picnic of the Makers of Melody
To-Morrow.
The annual picnic of the Musicians’
j Union will occur to-morrow afternoon
and evening at the Fair Grounds, and
the organization promises the greatest
event in its history. The committee
in charge, headed hy Mr. George Kur
ner, has spared no eiTort to make it a
success. At one o’clock the parade
will take place. A band formed of
ten bands will make the music, and it
is safe to say will fill the streets with
•melody. The principal streets will be
traversed to the Fair Grounds. At
the grounds hourly concerts will be
given and a series of athletic events
will take place. Several bicycle races,
the principal of w’hich are the three
mile and half mile open, will be run,
and the entry list is made up of the
best riders in this vicinity, who prom- (
ise to make them interesting. The
Foster brothers, Lenhardt, Hoffman,
Marks and other well known wheel
men will contest for the prizes hung
up, which are offered by a number of
public spirited merchants. Then there
will be a mule race, in which the
musicians only will take part, and of |
course there will be a host of fun in
that. The music will be a great fea
ture of the picnic. The hourly con
certs will be given by the musicians
in the valley, and the band will be
a big one. During the day dancing
will be indulged in at the pavilion.
The affair throughout promises to be
a great success.

A PERTINENT QUESTION.
To tbe Editor of the Register.
Sir:—I endorse the action of the
Committee on Petitions and Remon
strances, taken at Friday evening's
meeting, as far as it goes; but I and
other citizens would like to know why
the Committee picks one saloon as a
mark for its displeasure and action,
and allows other and worse places to
go on? Why is this? If a license is
to be annulled in one instance, for
good and sufficient reasons, why is not
the same action taken elsewhere, where
there is much more cause? It looks
as though somebody was being made
a scapegoat of. The Committee can
not plead ignorance, for these licenses
come before it, before they go to Coun
cil, and it is the Committee’s business
to make a thorough investigation in
each case, and it is also its duty to
act where action is required. I very
greatly fear the whole thing of super
vision over disorderly houses and ques
tionable resorts, in Wheeling, is a
fraud and a farce.
ENQUIRER.
-o
GO A LITTLE FARTHER.
To the Editor of the Register.
Sir:—The order to clear the Second
ward market house of bums and loaf
ers, white and black, is good. But
why should it be necessary for a Coun
cil Committee to act in this matter?
Where are the police? They certainly
know their duties, and there are two
of them on the beat every night. And
speaking of clearing the market house
out, will not the police take their cue
from this order and also put a stop to
the nightly disorder on the east sid«
of the market house, about the dool
of the gambling resorts there? Re
putable people living on the block can
not sit at their doors or windows in
the evening, and ladies going out
alone, on that part of the street are
insulted directly, and their ears as
sailed with the vilest epithets, while
negro men and women are about all
night long and every night in the
week, but particularly Saturday night
and Sunday morning. Why not have
a little genuine reform in this matter?
SECOND WARD.
ANOTHER0MAD DOG.
Yesterday a dog, supposed to be mad,
created a great deal of excitement and
apprehension in ‘Goose Town,” around
the hill, by running through the streets
snapping and biting at everything and
everybody. The dog was run into a
cellar and locked in, and the police sent
for. Officers Allen and Walker re
sponded and killed the dog.
