If Any Warlike Action Was Taken by the
Grievance Committee Conference, It Has
Not Leaked Out—The Situation Remains
CHICAGO, March 6.—Mr. O'Brien, of
the press committee of the Brotherhood,
says it is the intention of the engineers
to confine the strike to the C. B. & Q.
stems, and it is not desired that the
strike business should become contagious.
The Brotherhood considers that the "Q."
people have not been successful in their
efforts to operate the road. The engi
neers have been successful only in burn
ing out the engines. Mr. O'Brien addt
"I'he feeling that their men is incom
petent is so general th&t the people of
IoWa have called upon the board of rail
way commissioners to examine the men
and see if they are competent. The
Iowa commissioners have been examin
ing men at Burlington for four days. We
have received a report of the examina
tions, which shows the men examined to
be very incompetent. Victory will bo
ours, as the Brotherhood can hold out as
long as the company. New men ore
leaving the company every day, as soon
as they understand the situation."
Quite a number of chairmen of the dis
trict grievance committees have left for
their homes, and more will go to-day. A
special committee of three will remain in
tho city, and give Chiefs Arthur and Sar
gent the benefit of their advice and
The air is full of rumors of probable
strikes on the Northwestern, Milwaukee

boycott Burllr'{ton freight If carried by
ether roads, if any definite action was
taken, the Brotherhood has admirably
succeeded in keeping it secret. All the
morning papers tell different stories, and
Chief Arthur bunches the whole lot and
deolares it all imagination.
There are no new developments at the
offices of the company. Improvement in
freight movement was reported, and it
was stated that over 60 per cent, of the
system is now in full working order.

by Canada toward American fishermen
throughout all the years, tbe secretary
"It is believed that a remedy is practi

now pending, and that by its terms now,
and the first time since 1818, a just and
joint Interpretation is agreed to by both

1818, which will secure just and hospitable
treatment to tho United States fishermen,
and secure to them, unmolested, the full
measure of their rights, and that under
the proposed arrangement every fisher
man pursuing his vocation in the waters
adjacent to North America can acquire a
clear understanding of his rights and
duties whilst within the jurisdictional
waters of Canada or Newfoundland, and
that he may resort to such ports and har

uncertain, unwarranted and variant in

Ourae in the Union army during the

ton of Adam Kuehner.
ST. LOUIS, March 2.- Adam Kuehner,
the wife murderer, plead guilty to the
charge of murder in the secondVlegree,
in the criminal court, and was'sentenced
to ninety-nine vears' imprisonment in the
penitentiary. TCuehner's crime was a
most cold-blooded one. He killed his
wife, Helena, on May 80, 1885, at their
residence, on Illinois avenue. She had a
little money, and this appears to have
been the attraction for him. He was al
ways after her to give him money. He
wanted her to start him in business with
her little funds. She refused. This led to
trouble, and they were quarreling con
stantly. He beat her one day and they
separated. She sued for divorce, and
preferred a charge of assault and battery
against him. "The day of the killing he
received the papers in the divorce suit
He immediately went to the house. Whon
he arrived there he found his wife had
put all his things out of doors. He en
deavored to get her to place them back,
and also to drop the suits she had brought
against him. When she refused he drew
a revolver and shot her.

The main sewers are locawd on each

va» found practicable
We have altogether about 43%' miles

Forty Acre Tractjust South of W B. Valentine addition
live acre tract of "F. Clement".
The system has man-holes distributed
on the mains.
No surface or roof water is permitted
to enter tbe sewers, the system being de
signed and proportioned for house-sew
eragd oniy.
The house drains are all four inohes in
diameter, and no trap is permitted on
the main drain, eaoh fixture being pro
vided with a separate trap. Tbe soil
pipes are r( oast iron, with lead joints,
above tbe ground and extend four in
ohes in diameter above tbe roof. Eaoh
house drain is subsequently a ventilator
for the publio sewer.
For the purpose of removing tbe sub
soil water, agricultural drain tiles ate
laid in the trench with each lateral, on
the grade o! the sewer, or below it, whioh
discharge, not into tbe sewers, but into
the bayou. Additional lines of tile have
been laid in streets in whioh no sewer is
located. 85 6-10 miieB of subsoil drains.
A large part of the treuohing has been
done by contract, but tbe pipes have
been lata with hired labor.
The prices last paid for exoavating
and baok-filling are as follows: Trenoh
es 6% feet deep, 25o. to 9 feet, 30o.:
9 to 12 feet, 45o 12 to 15 feet, 75o per
lineal foot.
The pipe laying, inoluding laying
drain tile in the same trenoh, also the
oostofthe oement, sand, oakum and
and tile paper, is estimated to oo»t 7 6-10
cents per toot. The flush tans a oost
oomplete aboat $45,00 eaob, including
$10 00 eaoh, royalty.
The six-inob pipes, although draining
houses on both sides, iu some oases for a
distance of three thousand feet, have
never been overcharged, and have
seldom been found running taalf fall.
No trouble has been oaused by sewer
gas, and the sewers are believed to be
comparatively tree from it.
Some of tbe six-inch pipes have oc
casionally been obstructed by B'ioks,
oones, etc-., becoming fiixed across tbe
lmmeter of the pipe, all of whioh have
uuen promptly removed, at an average
oost of $13. SO eaoh.
Some deposits have been found in the
mains, whioh have been rapidly
and inexpensively removed by tbe
passage of hollow mental balls
through them. These balls ere
about three inobes less in diameter
than the sewers, aud being lighter than
water are pressed against the top of tbe
sower, and are rolled along by tie foroe
of the current. The velooity of the ball
is less tbuu ttmf of tbe water, which in
passing it ia ot ILroteU against tbe bot
tom and sides of the sewer so as to
tborougly cleanse it.
A. portion of the mains have been
cleansed twenty-three times sinoe their
