A WELL-INFORMED CORRESPONDENT GIVES FIGURES, And Kxptalnft. In Ietall, tint Ar Wjrtm Mitliiteiittnce, I'Ac, ol I'ropofjed rinn Kdltor San Aiilonlo Mirlil: The pioposed sewer system for San Antonio ts nf such Impnttsnce that all the following points should he well considered : ARA AND COST. The plan proposed Includes the centir part of the city, containing about 1200 acres, and the estimated cost Is $350,000 -If the dii- clmrge is made zoo yards helow the Sunset railroad bridge Nut included in this plan are all the s tiled parts ol tlie city Ivlnc north nl Hidalgo, Warren, Poplar and Dallas streets, th of Kiie and Grand avenue, and north of Sherman street; cast of Walnut, LaSille and Indunola streets; south of Camargo, Arsenal and San Fernando streets, and west of San Saba and North Frio streets. All these parts will come In for sewtrage when the present plan la carried out, with an area of about 1600 acres and anc atimated cost of $450,000. SYSTEM. The plan proposed by Major Humphreys is the system adopted In Memphis. After the ferftd yellow fever epidemic the sewerage of Memphis was done s speedily and cheaply as poisilile under the Mc direction of Major Humphreys in 1EX0, but the system is not in all Its details, sitisfactory. The omlsstou of man-ho'es at every sttcet crossing and at every bend or change of gradient, so neces sary for Inspecting, cleaning and ventilating the pipes, Is a great defect. The minimum site of 6 inch pipes is also not sufficient when the works are to be extended. SEWER CONNECTION. The most important question is: "Can the City Council make the sewer connection obligatory or not!" If the poorer classes cannot be compelled to' connect with the sewer, to establish water closets and pay for the water, then the whole system will be Inef ficient in a sanitary point of view. Hut if the sewer connection can be mad compulsory, then the house connection pipes must be laid at once from the sewer pipe to Ihe street line opposite every house aad vacant lot to avoid the breaking up of well constructed streets, which is now daily door when a house con nection is made with the water or gas pipes. DlSroSALOFSnVAGE. The point selected for the discharge of the sewage into the river is zoo yards below the Sunset railroad bridge. This point is, by straight line, one mile and a half, and, by the crooked course of the river, fully three miles above the lower city line. The auestloa now is: Can Ihe City Council cause the pollulian of the river water In the lower part of the city, when, by ai ordinance, the defiling of the river water in the upper aad central part ol the city is prohibited and punished! There is no plact in the whole world where a small stream like the San Antonio river is used for the dis charge ef sewage, except the sewage is puri. tied. Now, if the sewage can not be ilia charged Into the river, then the utilizing of the. same, which was so ardently advocated by Major Dwyer, becomes a necessity. The sewage is utilized at furls, Oxford, Doncaster, Bedford, Wrexham, Croyderr, Leamington, Berlin, Dantzlg and other places in the most successful and profitable manner. MAINTENANCE. Including the cost for man-hcles, larger pipes and all house and lot connections, the entire cost will not be less that $400,000, The anaual Interest at S per cent, is $32,000; annual salary lor men at $540 and one fore man at $900, to inspect, Hush and clean the pipes daily, $95.40; annual expenses for water (48,000 gallons, daily,) in flushing, $5256; total annual expenses amounting to $46,796. rlUCT OF THE SEWERAGE ON OTHER CITY IMPROVES! RNTS. The additional annual expense of $46,796 will cripple the city finances to such an ex tent, that little or nothing can be done for surface draining and street improvements. NECESSITY. There is no questi.u that a properly con structed sewerage is very desirable, but the necessity in point of health is disputed by the best sanitary authority. In most of the Euro pean cities the dry earth and the barrel sys tem, if strictly carried out is considered en tirely sufficient la regard to health. And if properly managed the excrements and the house sewerage, when utilized, can be re moved at a very small expense to the owner and at no expense whatever to the city. One year ago the New Orleans papers were jubi lant, that the new city administration had granted the petition of a large number of the most prominent citizens', including the best physicians, and annulled the contract for the sewerage of the city. It was stated that sewers are more injurious than beneficial to the health and as a frightful example Memphis was .cllei In which the death rate had continually In creased since the entire completion of the sewers in July, iSSt. According to the reports of the sanitary board the death rate from dysentery was twice and from diphtcrltls foar times as great as'befnre. X. . RELEASED. Trimble Lot Vree-Our Government Weak On tha High Seas, llut Stroll for Crltnlaals. Trimble, accused of being one of Ihe leaders in the wrecking of the train at I -a Jarlla, Mexico, a few months ago, was released yes terdiy by United States Marshal Gosling. This was done In compliance with a telegram from Secretary ol State Frelinghuysen, who asserted that there could be no extradition in this case. Judge Kussell, the extradition gent of the United States Government, was about surrendering Trimble to the Mexican authorities, when his hands were stayed by rrelinghuysen a onlrr. This it very much to be regretted, stilt It is a glaring fact that the Mexican authorities have never yet recognized the doctrine of international courtesy or comity here one of her citizens was in trouble. The Rio Grande his been mide a border land for dispute, for partisan protection of the biggest thieves of cattle that Mexico can produce, since Cortina made his position as a General in Ihe Mexican army a safeguard fir the raids of his country men on the unprotected counties on our fron tier. Yet this should not pilllte Trimble's devilism, his ready htnd In the killing ol the train men, and the robbery ol the express car at La Jarita and the passeagers. It is, of course, a mattsr of treaty and reciprocity be tween the two Republics, and while our Gov- ment his acted rightly In this instance, it Is a pity and a disgrace that the shadow of her protecting shield should be thrown around a like Trimble. Trimble coalJ not be found here this morning. It Is said that he has gone back to his old haunts near Laredo. If so, it will not be long till Justice In some way or other, in hearing of Trimple being kidnapped to the other side of the river, will be satisfied. We can simply add, that we wish the American flag could find more worthy material over which to spread its xgis than over a man like Trimble. There are to-day, In various parts of Mexico, American citizens languishing In their jails, guiltless of any offense, were they to be tried Impartially. Yet they languish, linger, half starved, without any consular asslstanci or advice, became our Govern ment's strength permits Its weakness to be shown abroad to the scandal of all first class powers aad the ridicule of each petty dutchery and tottering coronet in Christendom. Our Government, it seems to us, Is only self assertive and aggressive when an American criminal on our borders needs saving from the just wrath ol Mexican justice. A DEADLY COMBAT. Ullarlo Lopea Attacking lllas Villareal Is Shot by Ilia Opponent. Last night two Mexicans, named Ilttario Lopez and BlasVillareal, engaged in a bloody combat, In which the latter most probably saved himself from death, by shootiag the former. The figlft took place at El Kialto saloon, corner of Laredo and Dolorosa streets. It appears that Ullarlo Lopez under Ihe influence of liquor insulted Bias Villareal, hence the iramcdite cause of the further trag edy. After a few words had passed between the two, Lopez seized a knife with which he made a desperate onslaught on Villareal, who saved himsslf by light. Lopez still pursued his opponent, and when close upon him attempted to stab him, lllas tnrned round and warded ff the deadly thrust with nis hand receiving a fearful cut. A man's blood once drawn wilt rousethe whole force of his brute nature, and so it was with Villareal, who, dashing behind the counter of the bar room, seized a pistol lying there and fired two shots in quick succession at lit would be assassin. The first shot entered his right lower araa, the second struck him right between the third and fourth ribs, glancing towards Ihe heart. Officer Harden by this time had appeared on the ' scene, and the two fighters, with the help of others, were taken to the police headquarters. From there lllas Villareal was transferred to the county jsll and Ullarlo Lopez to the hos pital. The City Physician, who attended on the wounded man, extracted the ball (38 cal ibre) from Ihe arm, but the other is in such a dangerous position that it requires time and great skill to draw it out without endangering Ihe patient's life. The decter does not think Ullarlo will live. As to Villareal it seems as though all he. did was done in self-defence, and if so he will get oft'. llnptlst Mission Sunday School. We are glad to be able to say that the con cert given at this Mission last evening was a decided success, Its aim was to .furnish pleasant enjoyment at a small charge, to raise funds to meet the current expenses and to obtain a library, the need of which has been very much felt. It was hoped and not in vain that by tome such entertainment funds might be raised to accomplish this end. This was done with the. generous help of friends, to all of whom I tend my earnest thanks." A very pleasant evening was spent. Some of the perform ances were rendered In fine style. Among the recitations we find the laughable pieces: "I am a big Girl and I am a big Hoy" by Mist Mary Sargent. At the completion of the latter the auaience demanded a reap pearance amidst roars af laughter. We also feel compelled to notice the "Fire Bells Story" by Miss Pinkey Smith; "The First Quarrel" by Miss Florence Smith and the "New Church Organ" by Miss lleutah Brown. In the Instrumental and vocal part of the entertainment, must thank those ladies and gentlemen for their efforts in our behalf. Among whom we snsy mention Mr. and Mrs. uommings, oars. iogaa, Mrs. down ing and Misses Lily and Johanna Smith, The proceedings commenced with "Good Night" and closed with "Good Night," both sung by Miss Carrie Smith. I should also like to thank the scholars for their help to. ward the success of the entertainment. T. Dawson, Superintendent FOUND DROWNED. THEBODY OFALBERTINARAUPERT DIS COVERED IN THE SAN PEDRO. A .lurjr of Iniiiiot Adjourn for Further s-Sumiliea in to the Death fllrl. Who una Shortly In yi Ileen Married. IS Idem of tin Eitly this morning a telephone ring-up at police headquirters informed Officer Harris that the body of a girl had been found in Ihe San I'edro creek at the North Klores street crossing. Harris Immediately lent Westmore land to Constable Fred Bader with this Infor mation. A jury was 'then empaneled, and a I.tniiT man, happening to pass just as the lucks containing Justice Adam, Constable llader and the jury were starting. Jumped in and went to Ihe scene of the girl's death. Mter a very pleasant drive the creek was readied, and on the opposite side, in a small bend of the creek, where Ihe deepest water Is, and where Ihe girl was found, the body lay, surrounded by a small knot of awe struck and wondering women and a few men. The hacks pulled up, the occupants jumped out, when the jury was sworn in by Fred Kader and the body examined. The girl, whose name was Albcrtina Kaupert, about 25 years old, lay on her back perfectly stiff and rigid; her arms were bent across her bosom as though in Ihe act of imploring, or, may tie, In the endeavor of keeping something and some body off from her person. She had not the appearance of having been in jhc water long, for while her eyes were closed her cheeks were rosy, her expression natural, and her form in no way blosled, horrid to look upon. Decently dressed in a blue dress, blue stockings and low shoes, there she lay stiff, cold and dead. After examining the body and finding no marks of injury or vio lence, the Judge adjourned the inquest until 3 o'clock this afternoon for Ihe purpose of ob taining further evidence. From the persons round the following facts were obtained: Al bcrtina Raupert, a nice looking girl, 25 years old, was for some time employed at the hos pital. There for nearly 9 months she did her duty and satisfied her employers so much so that they wished t make a nun of her (ac cording to the girl's statement) but this she liked not, and ran away. A short time since she obtained work with Mrs. Dunbar, of this city.and continued In the family up to the day of her .death. Last night at about half-past after having been at Mrs. Gollhart's during the greater part of the day, she complained of sickness and went to bed, asking Mrs. Gotthart to wake her up aud give her the medicine she should take by Dr. Adolph Herd's orders. Mrs. Gstthart complied with this request, and at 11 o'clock went to her roam, but the room was tmpty and Albertlna was no where to be found. Search was made, though to no purpose, and the girl was seen no more until found ia the creek next morn ing by Mrs, Gotthart. Johnatban Mossburg nd J. II. Reed pulled the body out of the creek, when the jury came and the above facts were learned. The saddest part of the whole tragedy is that Albertlna was to be married to man named Gus Kaaub, who was already getting the house ready for their future life. Knaub is away, anil when lie returns will find her who was to have been his bride in the grave. Surmises as to 'how Ihe girl met her death are conflicting, but the majority think that the girl was delirious, and walking out of the house fell into the creek and was suffocated. The Doctor thtnks she was in a fever, but this afternoon no doubt the poor girl's death will be easily accounted for at the inquest. BURGLARY. Safe lllosvn Open In Houston Street-Con-teuta Carried to Travis X'ark und Scattered. No one can tell what a day may bring forth. And as) the silent hours of the night there must always be a mystery about them, which only the day can reveal, and wide awake men account for. This is particularly, verified, when the store of W. G, Edwards, at the corner of Houston and Navarro streets was opened. Th door was found partially open there was a smell of sulphur and of powder, and when the clerk reached the rear ol the building there was an open safe, scat tered papers and general confusion, which immediately indicated that "things had changed" since Ihe evening previous. That the place had been entered by burglars there could be no doubt. How they entered the marks on the Houston street were tongueless but well understood witnesses. It appears that the robbers had pried open the front door sometime during the night, and with the aid of instruments bad bored a bole into the safe, filled it with pow. der, and then blown out the irowdoors. They then worked their way patiently, further, tl'l they had cleaned out all the wood work of the interior of the safe, so that they could remove the little iron drawer which contained the cash and bank papers. This they succeeded In accomplishing. The robbers took away with them the drawer and Its con tents and from proofs this morning it Is apparent aid clear that they carried it to Travis park so as to hold an inquest on the spoils. Their midnight labors were only re warded by a fee of $30 in silver and paper. Still there was something like $500 In checks which they could not by any means make use of, and so they scattered it to the winds I in the park. Mr. Hans Degener was walking through the park this morning on hit way to his lumber office and noticed some fragments of paper whizzing among the dry grass. He stooped to examine them, stumbled over the safe drawer, and llh the evidences before him, properly con cluded that a burglary had been committed. He immediately gsihercd up all the checks and testored them to their owner. This resto ration was most timely, since the store had now been opened and Mr. LVlwarda, caring nothing for the $3 1 stolen, was anxious about these same checks. It is superfluous to re mark that Mr. Drgener's find and treasure trove made him more than happy, and Mr. Dcgencr was only too gratified to be the messenger of such good tidings. Nothing from the stock was stolen. The ex plosion broke no windows nor dam aged anything but the safe Itself. As a Lioiit reporter amveyed the field this morn ing he found the office fljor strewed with papers, which the robbers had scattered, and the safe looking like a piece of Iron ordinance that had so badly hurl itself In open field work as to be shunned by Its captors. It should be stated here that the same place was burglar ized II months ago, and very likely the same thieves who then attempted its entrance have been from time to time biding their oppor tunity to seize what they thought was a bonanza on the inside awaiting their lining Meantime no arrests. A WINTER'S TALE. Superh ArtliiK, llut Itelentleaa Ahhretlo- Hon of n Omnia. Miss Rose Eytinge, who is about twice the ageof her manager and husband, CyrilSearle, was greeted by a large audience last night at Turner hall, In the play of "A Winter's Tale." She did her best in the part of Hermione, and that best was only apparent In the last act, where, as a piece of blanched statuary, she steps down, after many years of retire ment and of supposed death, to embrace her husband, the King of Sicily. There was a rare chance here to redeem the whole play, but this she missed by permitting the curtain to go down ere one-tenth of the play, as found in the original, was performed. "A Winter's Tale" was so badly mutilated and abbreviated that Shakspeare himself, had he been in the flesh last evening, would scarcely recognize his own production. We failed to perceive his son Mamilius, much less the kindly offices of Camillo In the fourth act where Terdita and Florizel are aided in their escape from Bohemia to Sicily. These omissions are mor tal stabs at the completeness of this drama' Antobycus, the rogue, by Daniel Hart, was excellently rendered and kept the audience from leaving. The clown was an eye lid opener and met with fervid approbation. We came away pleased with the chief actress and her luppofj, but chagrined that one of the old English masterpieces like this should be so curtailed of its fair proportions as to make It a weakling without dramatic sex, and a mutila tion without rhyme nor reason. AN AFFAIR OF HONOR. llloodtheil Itetweeil Two Fiery Opponent Stopped hy Interference of the l'otice and Friends. A difficulty arose on Main plaza, yesterday, between a well known sport of this city and one J. B. II., of New Orleans, and a challenge was issued in regular form, the seconds ap pointed, surgeons selected, carrisges engsged and all the munitions of war carefully looked over. A serious case of bloodshed would have occurred but for the intervention of friends and the timely arrival of our ever-vigilant police, who are ever on the alert for all evil, doers. It Is sincerely to be hoped that sun. rise and a clear and sobered brain will con vince both young men of the error of their ways and turn the current of their lives intothe piths af peace and good fellowship. Had the affair been allowed to take the natural course of events of that class, there would have been bloodshed and one or both families plunged into the depths of sorrow at the hasty and in. considerate acts of two excited and irreinon sible youths, who should never have been allowed beyond the limits of their mothers apron strings. - Disturbing the Fence. Last night Officer Brown was awakened from his hard earned sleep by the cries of woman at his door. Brown went out and found Mrs. Muck, living on St. Louis street, with tears in her eyes. "What is the matter!' asked the officer. The lady then informed him that her husband had beaten and thrown her out of the house. Brown accompanied Mrs. Muck to her home, where Mr. Muck was lying on the bed. "Get out of here," said Ihe husband, "or I'll throw you out again." The wife then told her husband that he could not do that as she was accompanied by an officer. "You and the officer can go to h 1," was the reply. Brown immediately went In and asked him whit he meant. lie said he meant nothing, but Brown made him dress and took him oil to jail. There he was allowed to give bond on a promise of not re turning home. This promise he broke, and returning home again beat his wile and smashed up numerous articles in the house. Three times Mrs, Muck invoked Brown's help during the time which Intervened be tween his arrest and trial before the Recorder this morning. The case was continued. Weddings Favored.
