WAGONS " CAUSE A COMPLAINT THE RESIDENTS ON UPPER JACKSON STREET OBJECT TO HAVJNG DILAPIDATED WAGONS -ON STREETS IN .-nONT OF THEIR DOORS?THEIR GRIEVANCE HAS BEEN LAID BEFORE THE MAYOR. The property owners on upper Jack- I son street have a grievance which TIT T.-I *??+ n cot-iof, ui. 1VJ11SCV accjuo t<.< WU.1.1U1,. . I "The cause of the nuisance is the Jackson Street Carriage Co.'s dilapidated -old vehicles standing along the street, and in some cases encroaching upon I the sidewalk. Thomas Hajmowi, who recently completed one of the finest residences in the city, and which is situated directly opposite the carriage works, is the one most affected by this violation of a city ordinance. Several days since. Mr. Kaymond requested Mayor Kinsey to have those unsightly specimens of wrecked v/aconhood removed. His Honor was not guilty of signing this removal notice without looking at the names of the parties interested, but instead asked Mr. Haymond if he desired to swear out a warrant for the offenders. Mr. Haymond informed His Honor that sucli a course was not necessary, j as the mayor had absolute power in snch' matters. Mr. Kinsey then opined that the Street Committee was the j jjroper authority in the case. Then some one looked in the book and His Honor said: "I'll go around j and see those people and fix things up right away." When lie came back J he informed a city official, who was present when Mr. Haymond made his request, that "They had talked very nice to him," and he thought they would remove it soon. Of course the fact that the owners -of the Jackson Street Carriage Company supported him in the recent election had nothing to do with his views, inclinations and action in the matter. Furthermore, these articles should not he construed as antagonistic to the administration, but on the contrary, we are endeavoring to show the mayor the error of his ways, and try to persuade him to return to the straight and narrow path of duty. the Weather.

WE DO NOT LOOK FOR ANY VIOLENCE, AND HOPE THAT THE MATTER WILL BE SENSIBLY SETTLED ERE LONG. Fairmont people have become so mad because the B. <& O. railroad company refuses to raise the railroad bridge below Fairmont in order that boats may pass under it that they threaten to blow the bridge up with dynamite. On a trip to Fairmont by boat the expression "That bridge will be dynamited yet," was heard a number of times, but never rrom a sieaniuuai man. Within five minutes after leaving the boat a man living near the bridge saiii to the writer: "I expect to look over there some morning and see that bridge is missing. blown sky high by dynamite." The first man met near the depot remarked : "The people here are as mad as fury at the railroad company, and they will blow that bridge up unless the company raises it." Since that time the same expression has been heard on a number of occasions, and although it may he that the people are just now giving vent to idle threats in order to blow off some of their surplus anger at the company, it is not at ail improbable that the threats' being made will lead some weak minded individual to the commission of a grave crime. The bridge is beyond any question of doubt an obstruction to navigation, and it is rank foolishness to permit the railroad company to defeat the object for which the government has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in building the locks and dams between tworganlown and Fairmont. No law-abiding citizen will encourage the commission of a crime to right a wrong that can be righted very easily and speedily if the officials do their duty, but it is almost a foregone conclusion that some peri son will "blow her up" if there is not I something' clone by the proper authorities to give the people their rights. FLED DOWN THE STEPS AT THE COURT HOUSE BEFORE| GETTING HER SENTENCE ! FROM THE "JUDGE." Yesterday a woman slightly intoxicated went into the office of the prosecuting attorney and claimed she had been cheated by the courts. She said I that some persons had sworn lies about her property, causing her to lose it. A number of lawyers were in the office and. as the woman was I not careful in the choice of her j words, several umuauia uuugn | heard. I While she was in the height of her glory another lawyer came in. Now I a lawyer never lets pass a chance to j play a joke, and one of those present I addressed the newcomer as "Judge." and asked him to write out his order ! committing the woman to jail for thirty days. Before the "Judge" could get his paper ready, the woman had [ descended the Court-house steps and disappeared in an alley. Nominated Debs.

THE JAPANESE HAVE AT LAST IN AND HAVE TROOPS STATI REACH OF THE RL MILITARY EXPERTS EXPRESS T.H ANESE LAND FORCES ARE CONCENTRATE AND PUT OF BUSINESS AND I LONDON, May C.?The long looked I t for investment of Port Arthur by r land is at last thoroughly under way. I, It is officially announced at the Japanese and Russian capitals that 1 Japanese transports have steamed up t along the Liao Tung Peninsula to the 1 rear of Port Arthur and landed troops c at two points, each within easy ac- o cess of the Russian Gibraltar. One landing has been made at Pitzsewo, , ? not far from the Gulf of Yin Kow, I and another on the opposite side of a the Peninsula at Port Adams. I This step of the Japanese lorces, taken in conjunction with tlie hurried e departure of Viceroy Alexieff and the t Grand Duke Boris front Port Arthur, has given rise 10 a deep settled belief C that the Russian stronghold is doom- r ed to fall. v Alexieff and the Grand Duke did 1; not wish to become prisoners in Port v Arthur, and went IX'orth to assist in d the direction of the future movements r of the Russian forces. The landing o of the Japanese troops tends to con- s firm the reports that Port Arthur harho has been effectually blocked. k It. is known that the Japanese gen- i eral staff would long since have ac- i: cepted a landing movement, had they r been assured that the Russian fleet >i: ih the harbor could not get, away to p harass their movements. Now that fl the landing is made, it would appear t: that the Russian fleet is locked in t and is no ionger a factor of any con- fi sideration. d Military experts to-day express the conviction that ihe Japanese land p forces are now in an excellent posi- d iff i iti\ \r MAUU MULLER PARTY A MAGNIFICENT EVEN-7 TO TAKE j A PLACE IN JUNE TO BE GIVEN UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF THE LADIES OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH ASSISTED BY ALL THE A YOUNG LADIES OF THE CITY?

OUR CONCERNS ARE THE SUBSTANTIAL KIND AND THAT PUTS US AHEAD OF THE BOOM TOWNS ELSEWHERE. The Monoiigali Glass k Company's plant now being built will be the } largest manufacturing concern in the. city. The plant takes up the square between Twelfth and Thirteenth streets and -Miner and Chamberlain avenues. The main building will he 12r>x2i>5 fret, and will contain two 1 2 ton tanks. Work on the construction is being rushed and the plant will be in operation by .inly 1. The building is being erected by Contractor \V. ft. Hickman while the furnace work is being done by the H.
