COUNTY COURT. The Proceedings of That Body Duly Recorded. Tne Judge's Bond Comes in Signed by A Howell and A. H. Munford. Report of tfc. Jail Commissioners. The proceedings of the Quarterly court were crowded out of the Leaf Chronicle yesterday, but are given to-day. The minutes of the January term were read and approved. Judge Tyler's bond was then read to the court. It is for 8,)00 and was signed by C. W. Tyler, A. Howell and A. II. Munford. The bond was accepted by the County court and delivered to the clerk. Why this had not been done before is a ques tion the Leaf-Chronicle can't answer. At the conclusion of Judge Tyler's reading of his report Monday. 'Squire Corban said it was a very important matter and moved the ap pointment of a committee to ex amine it thoroughly and report at the next meeting of the court. Judge Tyler objected, saying that an expert was appointed at the last term of the court for that purpose and the regular com mittee had submitted its report just read by the clerk, and he thought that should be sufficient. 'Squire Corban made some explanations for his motion, repeating that he thought it an important matter and that was the proper way of passing on it, as the court was unable to judge clearly of it from hearing it read. Just then another motion was made that the report be received and spread Uon the minutes. This motion was put to the house and carried. The report then became the property of the court and the clerk, its proper custodian. Judge Tyler, however, took posses sion of the manuscript, saying to the court that he would keep it a few days before turning it over to the clerk, as it was necessary to make some corrections. It was then moved that the report be furnished to the city papers for publication on the condition that they would publish it free of charge. This motion was carried, when Judge Tyler stated that he had made ar rangements with the Democrat to publish it, and the other papers could get it after it was revised. 'Squire Caldwell moved that the court en dorse Judge Tyler's administration of county affairs by a rising vote. l'he motion was put and all of the magistrates stood up. It was ordered by the court that the clerk should receive the legal rate for enrolling Judge Tyler's report on his books. The jail con missioners reported that they had made arrangements with Win. Manning for attending the work-house prisoners. Since the last term of the court the suits brought by the sheriff against the county have been compromised. The county pays tbe sheriff's attor neys $170. The costs of suit are di vided. They also report that the county had a claim against the State for boarding prisoners during the term of litigation, and that the same has been compromised. The State allows the sum, $1,!)!)1.40 to go as a credit on a judgment the State had obtained against the county in a former suit. The remainder of the judgment has been paid, amounting to f l,.r(!S.I2. The suits have all been settled and everything is quiet for the time being. This report is signed by S. A. Caldwell, J. II. Achey and C. W. Tyler. The rate of taxation was fixed same as last year 15 cents on the hundred dollars for schools, 15 cents for revenue, and ii cents for railroad purposes and 2 00 poll-tax for State and county. Livery stables, photog rapher!", laundries, etc., were relieved of all special taxes except one privi lege tax, same as merchants pay. 'Squire C. D. Bailey moved to re store Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs. Revel and J. D. Soloman to tbe pension roll at $5 per month, dating from January 1. and it was carried unanimously. Sid C. Hatson, T. M. Iteynolds, John S. Neblctt and J. K. ltamey were electnl to act in conjunction with Judge Tyler as a board of equal ization of taxes. The venire for the May term of the Circuit court was appointed as follows: (Jarrett I track man, J. W. Darnell, Green Smith, Johnson Ford, It. D. Lea, N. S. Smith, Isaac Leigh, W. J. Major, M. J.

J. E. Harrison, pastor of the Methodist church here, made a short, pointed talk to the people at the close of Mr. Turner's sermon. He confined his remarks to the doctrine of the resur rection and made a strong argument. The pastor of the circuit is prepar ing a church directory for the charge. It will contain the names of all the members of the several churches on the circuit, the by-laws of the church and the time of preaching at each appointment. There are six churches on the work, with about 750 members. It is known far and wide as the "Solid Block," and al ways comes up to the scratch with church collections. They plant their banners high and never allow them to trail in the dust. ' A Good Story. The American's war story, 'Out witted," in Sunday's paper, is the best one it has published of the se ries, more entertaining even than the prize winner. The plot of the story Is in Russell ville, Ky., and the leading characters are or were w ill known here, The story is based on a raid of Federal soldiers into Rus seliville when it was occupied by Capt. Jno. B. Dortch, of this county, and a squad of Confederates. Capt. Dortch and his men got out of the way quickly, but Dr. Byrne, a resident af the place and wall-known here, was wanted by the Federals on a charge of burning a bridge. The party searching for him was com manded by Col., no a' President.IIar rison, and how a woman outwitted him and saved Dr. Byrne's life is in terestingly told by Wilbur F. Bar clay, recently of RussellvilU. Death of Wm. Michel. Wm. Michel died this morning at 6:55 of typhoid fever. He had been sick about two weeks. He was a young man of good business habits, and was generally liked throughout the city. Being a member of the firm of Michel Bros, in the bakery business here, he had done much to put the business of the firm upon the solid footing it now occupies. He was an industrious, hard-working young man and will be saily missed from his family. He will be buried to-morrow, after services at the Presbyterian church by Dr. Lupton, at 2 p. m., to which the friends of the family are invited. Interment at City cemetery. New Cottages. Throughout the winter the build ing of new houses continued with little cessation, and now that spring has opened fairly.a fresh impetus has been given work, and new cot tages dot the city in every direc tion. Especially is this so of South Clarksville, where more cottages have been built the past year than were built in the entire city in the saTtie length of time a few years ago The business and central parts of the city are not alone in their improve ment and advancement. Great Suffering- From the Flood. Distressing news still comes from the floods along the Mississippi. The great father of waters continues to rise, the levees are giving away, flooding large sections of country. Many lives have been lost in the past few days ; thousands of head of stock drowned and houses swept away by the gushing torrent. There is no end to the distresss and suffer ing, and the situation appeals to the whole country for immediate help relief for the homeless and starving people. Dramatic. Ceo. Wilson's minstrels will be the next attraction at the opera-house. They are billed for to-morrow night. This minstrel troupe is so well known that comment is unnecessary. Henry Watterson will be at the opera-house Friday night of this week, beginning at 8 o'clock, in his lecture on "Money and Morals." The people of Clarksville have heard this distinguished lecturer, and the memory of him is pleasing. A Good Performance. Prof. Morris and his trained ponies and dogs gave an interesting per formance at the opera house last night, and will appear again to night. The performance is especial ly instructive and entertaining to children, and the price of admission will be money well sient for any boy or girl who attends. The list of the dead, killed by the cyclone at Iiouisville, after careful investigation, has been reduced to seventy-five. Five or six more will probably die from injuries received. Bids for Grading.

The Electric Light Company Comes to the City's Terms. - A Few Suraestions as to Changes That Should be Made.-The Railroad Company Should Pay for a Light. A paragraph in the Leaf-Chron-icle last evening contained the intelligence that the long-existing troubles between the city and the Electric Light Company had been satisfactorily settled. The Electric Light Company came to the city's terms and closed the "contract for lighting the city. The Board of Mayor and Alder men met last night, ratified the con tract and passed the ordinance on first reading without a dissenting vote. The contract provides that the Electric Light Company Shall furnish the city with twenty five lights, of 2,000 candle power, at a rate of $7.00 per month per light. The city also retains the privilege of taking any number of lights it sees proper, up to thirty lights. The electric Light Company binds itself to raise fifteen lights to a heighth of thirty-five feet from the ground, and to move six lights at their own ex pense, to any point the committee on lights shall designate. The lamps are about as well ar ranged, with one or two exceptions, as they can be. The light on Madison street at the intersection of Seventh, should be raised thirty-five feet. If this is done it will give light to people living beyond this point on Madison, and also to those living on Greenwood avenue. Another change that should be made : A light should be put at the head of Commerce street on Tenth, near the passenger depot. A light placed at this point and swung thirty-five feet from the ground would light a territory which needs it very badly. This light should be paid for by the Louisville & Nashville Rail road Company. In other cities the company pays for lights to protect their interests, why not at Clarks ville? The railroad should also pay for a light at the freight depot. There is hardly a week passes without com plaints from them about people steal ing coal. Several arrests have been made of late on this sort of charge. If an electric light were hung so as to light up their coal chute and yards generally, it would put an end to this kind of petty thieving. Then again, it would be a good idea to move the lights on Front street to the top of the river bluff. If this were done the same territory would be well lighted and it would give additional light to the city. These few suggestions are respect fully submitted to the committee on lights for their perusal. An Important Matter. Messrs. Editors : I have talked with a number of our most substan tial citizens, and they unanimously agree with the Leaf-Chronicle that the city authorities should by all means take advantage of the large amount of dirt to be removed from Owen & Moorevs excavation and the Anglen property and make the fill across double pond and extend University avenue through to Com merce and Madison streets. The do ing of this will be an important step toward removing this unsightly and unhealthy pond of foul, stagnant water from the center of our city Every stranger who visits Clarks ville wonders why we allow such a nuisance in our midst. J. A. L. Want a Brush With Herndon. The American says that some of Nashville's champion wheelmen are anxious to have a brush with Hern don, Clarksville's invincible rider, this season. We have not talked with Mr. Hern don on the subject but we doubt not they can be accom-, modated.

AGENTS. l'he County Pension Roll. The County court did a good thing yesterday in reconsidering its action at the January term, and placed Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs. Revel and James Soloman on the pension roll at $5 per month, dating from January. It was evident from tho first that the court had not considered the moral obligation in this matter, because it is not made up of a heartless set of men. Other applicants for pensions will have to secure the recommenda tion of both magistrates in the dis trict in which the applicant may re side, and such recommendation must go before the poor-house commis sioners for endorsement before the pension is allowed. This arrangement will forever bar John Osburn, for if his case ever reaches the commissioners they will put him in the poer-houso to amuse the idiots. 'Squire Caldwell Moving to His New Liv ery Stable. 'Squire Caldwell has completed his new livery stable on Third street between Franklin and Main. The stable is conveniently located and well arranged. It is seventy-one by 110 feet, ample room, and he desires all of his old friends and customers to call and see him at his new quar ters.
