A LEGAL OPINION.
Delivered Before the Clt y Council by
City Attorney Sam M. Green.
At the City Council meeting Monday
night City Attorney Sam M. Green de
livered an opinion regarding the peti
tion of Independence street property
owners who asked the Council to re
lieve them of the tax assessed against
them for curbing set on that street
Mr. Green stated that the Council had
no power to grant the prayer of the
petitioners, and to back his opinion he
read the law on the subject which is
very plain. After hearing the opinion
of the City Attorney and hearing the
law read the petition of the property
owners was laid on the table.
The opinion of the City Attorney
was no surprise to a majority of the
members of theCouncil. When the city
became a city of the third class the
Council proceeded to pass an ordi
nance defining, in accordance with the
State law, how street improvements
should be made, and the passage of
this ordinance wiped out all old ordi
nances conflicting therewith. There
was curbing set on Sprigg and Merri-
wether streets after the passage of this
ordinance at the expense of the city,
but they were set in violation of the
An Interesting Letter From Texas.

brother and mother, invalid wife of
the late T. C. Iicech. of Paducah, Kv.,
:ire sojourning at present in the pre
historic city of San Antonio. Texas.
in search of health for the mother.
Miss Leech sjieaks of theclimate being
very dry. not having had any rain
there since September last that there
is a small river winding its way
around through the city like a snake,
which supplies them with water. Just
outside the citv a little v.avs this river
is made up by eight and ten beautiful
springs gushing out from Iteneath the
heights which surround the city and
that these springs are in the enclosure
of a very wealthy gentleman named
Col. Breckinridge, a native of the
Slate. This man's residents is sim
ply suberb and only occupied by him
self and old maiden sister liesidcs their
servants. It requires a pass to enter
this lieautiful enclosure. The next
handsomest residences are located on
the heights. In speaking of the city
she says that the old Spanish portion
is very peculiarly constructed, the
streets so narrow that vehicles can
scarcely pass each other. Bui that the
hew part as laid out by the Americans
is simply grand. They also isited the
Government Po1" and the grounds
are kept a neat as a pin. The drives
through there grounds are lovely.
This party will remain some time in
this southern retreat yet v.v hox for
them a s)e:-dy return of perfect health.

A Suit for Insurance.

company and Frank F Btirrough is
the attorney for the plaintiff.

It has liecn reported that the Su

the time for Xewsum to hang on the
Pith of February. Then is no truth
in the report, so far as we have been
able to learn. A prominent lawyer of
this city, who keeps up with the Su
preme Court proceedings, says the
Xewsum case has not yet been reached
in the Supreme Court.
They Ask lor Heller.
The property owners on Indepen
dence stivet have ietitioned the City
Council for relief from the payment of
the curbing set on that street. The
matter was lvfered to the city attorney
for his opinion. Wo do not know
what the opinion of the city attorney
is. but we do know that the City Coun
cil has no power to grant the prayer
in the petition. The law is that prop
erty owners must pay for the improve
ment of streets which their property
abuts and there is no getting around

HANGING IN HIS CELL.
Attempt 1 a Convict to K:ul His Im

Chester. III., January 24. Louis
Miller, a convict in the Chester Peni
tentiary serving a sentence of thirty
five years for murder, was found Tues
day night at 10 o'clock hanging to his
cell door with a twisted towel around
his neck. He first attempted suicide
by cutting the arteries in his wrist
with a case knife.
Miller is but 23 years old. He was

The Oriole Club certainly made no
mistake when Col. Ham. of Georgia,
was selected to deliver a humorous
lecture here, to ojien the series of four
entertainments. Col. Ham was greet
ed with an appreciative and attentive
iiudienee. and his lecture was not only
equal to but lieyond the exceptions of
his hearers. Through all his happy
vein of anecdote and reminiscence ran
the solier. steady undercurrent of his
thought which carried out his aim and
object to ljctter mankind by shotting
up th" "snollygoster. " He would
charm ihe attention of his audience
with a glowing grand Hightof rhetoric,
and in the silent hush of breathless
attention he would drop a word or
sentence of Georgia Cracker humor
that would open laughter's Hood gates
and make the walls ring with merri
ment and applause.

A Itlndlns Contract.
A jietition from Joseph Jeager was
read to the City Council Monday
night. The petitioner wants the street
in front of his property graveled in
stead of being repaired with silica. It
seems that the Street and Wharf Com
mittee of the Council contracted with
Geo. (J. Kimmel to repair Broadway
with silica, and the City Attorney says
that contract is binding and unless
Mr. Kimmel will agree to put gravel
on instead of silica there is no way
for the property owners on that street
to get the gravel.
