The absence of a number of mem bers from the late meeting of City Council has been the theme of much harangue in the columns of one of our local newspapers. Every movement of Council which does not accord with the rules which they have laid down as to what Council should, and what Council shouldn’t do, is made food for a long-winded, sensational article. The majority in City Council is alone responsible for the management of city affairs, and the people will hold them to a strict account for any dere liction of duty, the abuse of the “daily gossip” to the contrary notwithstand ing.

The contest for the nomi nation seems to have narrowed down to Messrs. Wm. N. Hewitt, Win. G. Brooks, John G. Ayars, and H. C. Williams. The nomination of either of these gentlemen will prove satisfac tory, and receive the full support of the party at the polls in November.

There has been great complaint the past few days concerning the odor arising from the city water. The water was utterly unfit for home use. Water Superintendent Woodruff im mediately began investigation as to the cause. The hydrants were opened, and the water drawn out of the pipes throughout the city. Nothing was found in them, but as near as can be ascertained the source of the trouble begins at Warner & Rhodes Canning establishment on Irving Avenue. At that place it is said that refuse from the factory is allowed to pollute the stream of water which Hows into East Lake. It is also asserted that the priv ies connected with the canning factory are located near the stream, and that the waste therefrom goes into the wa ter. If this bo so, then no wonder the water smells. It will be well for the Board of Health to make a thorough examination of the premises of Messrs. Warner A Rhodes, also the entire neighborhood of the head waters of East Isike, ami ascertain of a certainty from whence the (tollution comes. Immediate action is demanded in this matter. A singular case is reported at the Otsego, (N. Y.) County House. Sev eral years ego n young man was sent there. He gave his age as 24 and his name as John Ward. He finally be came insane. Last June he was sent to the County House as incurable. The phase of iusanlty to which he is subject is the strangest on record. He does not talk, he does not move. Ho has no more apparent |iower,of will than if he were inanimate. If stood up he will remain on that sjiot as If he had grown there. If not called for he would remain standing for three days or until he should full from exhaus tion. If put III a chair he sits there until moved again, as if he were a part of the chair itself. His health is fairly good. He must be fed like an infant. At times he has not enough of anima tion to swallow his footl. If any arti cle is placed in his bunds he will hold it until it is taken from him. His case is attracting the es|M>cial attention of physicians.

Hazeltine, the antiquary and num ismatist, tells a curious story, says the Philadelphia Times, of his accidental discovery of the General Washington penny of New Jersey: “One day an old man, a total stranger to me,” said Mr. Hazeltine, “came into my place with a number of old copper coins he wished to sell. After a little discus sion in regard to the price I bought the lot, which seemed to consist alto gether of trash, at the rate of two cents a piece. They were dirty and in very poor condition. After they had been washed and the acids applied, I discovered this one, the only one of its kind, to my knowledge, in existence. Dr. Maris came in to see me a few days after this, and I offered him the coin for $40. He refused to give more than $30, and when he came the next day to give me my own price for it, I told him I had been thinking all night about that penny, and it should not go for less than $100. This made him angry, and he went away. I sold it in New York two weeks afterward for $150. This was eight years ago. After the man who bought it died, his col lection was sold at auction and the coin passed into the hands of L. G. Parmelee, of Boston, who paid $640 for it. This gentleman possesses the finest cabinet of coins in the United States. It contains more unique spec imens than half a dozen other cabinets put together, and must have cost him not less than $50,000. A hundred thousand dollars could not buy it.” Ex-Governor St. John, the liquor less object for President, is having a quieter*and more delightful campaign than any of the other candidates. He is not bothered with cranks from var ious States wearing white hats and asking for post-offices.—New Orleans Picayune. Dr. Koch recommends acid drinks during cholera epidemics.

Dakota expects her wheat crop will amount to at least 20,000,000 bushels this year, and Colorado shows an in crease of five per cent, over any pre vious year, making a yield of 2,100,000 bushels. Of this GOO, 000 will be ex ported, Colorado herself consuming the remainder. Jeanne Granier is the hero of the hour along the Seine, and all Paris is talking about her. The thing that she did was to save a prett y companion, Marie Kolp, from drowning. -- Mr. J. P. Dolliver, the young Iowan who became famous by a single speech, like Proctor Knott, is making campaign addresses in the Eastern and Middle States. -♦ ♦ • - The Republicans of Gloucester Co., on Saturday re-nominated Stacy L.
