Stowe; Fifth ward, Dennis McSweeney; Sixth ward, Wm. .Booker. Kerns thought that the Are depart ment could attend to the duties of flro wardens without extra expense and, asked the Solicitor's opinion as to whether such action would be legal. The Solicitor thought that the' ordin ance could be so amended., that the wardens could bo dlsponscd with Mayor could don and said that tho city was CX' trembly1 fortunate In havlrigjmon,twho had the city's Interest at heart enough to be willing to servo, as fire wardens for $20 per year. The Mayor stated further that he knew of several in stances where fires had been, averted hy the wardens. s , - , Cutter and Coffman both -spoke vln favor of retaining flre wardens'. .After considerable' discussion tho names were confirmed. The committee appointed to confer with Mr. Webster regarding a'sldewallc In front of tho' Webster refinery re quested another week's time, as Mr. Webster had been out of town and could not bb conferred wth. The re quest was granted. Coffman said' thatd favorable riply had been received from tho builders of the Putnam street bridge regarding the condition and repair of the' bridge. They therefore requested more time, which was granted. Savage called for the report of tho government engineer In regard to the repair of lower Seventh street where the current of the river is rapidly eat ing away the street. No report was received. An ordinance was passed granting tho Loldecker Tool Company privilege to build a single rail track across Sec ond down to their shop3. This same ordinance was considered last meeting aud referred back to the itallroad com mittee. Because no kind of rail was sneclfled this time, girder rails were specified and the ordinance granted The nuestion as to whether the Council had a right to grant such fran chlso to private persons was decided by tho Solicitor In favor of granting fran chises. An ordlnanco was Introduced prohibit ing driving faster than a walk over Putnam Btreet bridge under penalty of ton dollars. After a lengthy discusslor. in which tho prevalent opinion seemed to 1)0 that slnco the bridge was con structed to stand ordinary street travel and tho street cars were allowed to ravel at a faster rate, no ordinance should bo framed." It was rof erred to the Bridge committee and tho Engineer. A communication wns read from Mr. Solpel complaining that dates-wero en gaged rat,tho Auditorium with thb in tontjou of keeping other people from presenting attractions on those dates, and aftenvafdsi"switchlng" the dates, thus causing a loss to tho city. On motion of Mr. Savago tho Building committee wore Instructed to see that tho oxlstlng rules, which wero deemed sufficient, should be strictly onforced. . Toller called tho attention of the Council to tho sidewalk crossing at Pearl and Harmar streets, which mat ter was referred to tho railroad com mittee, and he also called attention to tho fact that the M. C. & C. persist ently left cars on tho switch leading to the plaster works' contrary to the or dinance. After discussion it was de cided loi have tho Clerk notify them that if violation of the ordinance" va3 persisted In, tho Council would have action begun to forfeit tho rights granted. Mr. Coffman brought up tho subject of bill boards. The Solicitor then stated that Judge Jones had Issued a peremptory writ of mandamus requir ing that the city should remove the bill boards or show a good reason why they should not be remover.

In way of explanation it was stated that Mr. Smith was found dead in bed at his home by a customer, who, calling at his tin-shop and finding him absent had goae to the residence, a short dis tance away. He tried the door, which he found locked, then looking in at the window he saw tho old gentleman lying on the bed. This being rather unusual at that hour of day, especially as Mr-. Smith had been up about and in ap parent good health the day before, his curoslty was aroused. Neighbors were summoned, an entrance to the house effected, and examination des closed the fact that death had over taken the lonely occupant, apparently several hours before,as he was stiff and cold.

The McLean Kllbourne element at the district meet ings this afternoon secured control of all committees and wilt accordingly have everything their way at the Dem ocratic state convention tomorrow.

But in the rural districts the latter element got almost every thing. The controlling element did not "ride rough shod" over the mi norities in any districts, but when names were proposed for places on the coinmltteo there wero Inquiries as to how they stood and It replies were not satisfactory they were"oxcused"lnsome cases quietly as jurors, in others, with ballots, the McLean-Kilbourne element while unusually courteous, made no concessions . The old state committee met prev ious to tho district meetings and gave tickets of the McLean-Kilbourne men where there were contesting delega tions and they took all districts except thoso which include Cleveland.ln which Under the unit rule they could not con trol the vote. But the Johnson men after the result of the district meetings were known promptly announced thai they wouldcarry tho fight into the committee on resolu'Elons'for'- an nil night fight and then Into the conven tion tomorrow for "a finish." They have two strong men and vig orous speakers In Helsley and Baker, both members of Johnson's cabinet at Cleveland, on thacommittee on resolu tions. As the Montgomery contest and prob ably the Butler contest will be carried by minority reports on credentials into the convention for final action, it is predicted that the convention. will not reach the order of nominations until late tomorrow afternoon and that pro ceedings may be protracted into the night. Ex-Governor Campbell Is with the Schwab delegation from Butler county and today was given tickets by tho old state central committee. With all the efforts of the McLean Kilbourne men for harmony there nre every indications of unusual scenes on the floor of the convention over the minority reports, especially on creden tials and resolutions. warned them against getting mixed up with Interests of candidates for nom inations. He said Cuyahoga county had no candidate and was not repre sented herein the interest of any one, but was here for principles and not for men. , He explained that the platform would be adopted in convention tomorrow be for the order of nominations was reached and that after the resolution was disposed of all could then work for their personal preferences for nominations. He then modified thld by stating that the delegation would vote as a unit under its Instructions. DOMESTIC Probably Connected with tha Murder.
