why the motion was out of or
der. At length Aid. Nelson arose
and said that at the last meet
ing his motion was to strike the
bills of the two officers for $41. 66
each from the ordinance, thinking
thus to help out his worthy apostle,
Bladel, but the minutes of the meet
ing were consulted and it was found
that although Nelson did make the
motion To deprive Carnes and Kautz
of their money, yet he did not speci-
ly now mucn. mu insistea that he
did specify the amount, but it was
too late: the minutes had been read
and adopted.
Kennedy to the Rescue.
Kennedy came to the rescue of
his pals, but with a motion
similar to Aid. Bladcl's. but that
was ruled out of order also. Bladel
moved and Nelson seconded a mo
tion to appeal from the chair, but it
was lost. The ordinance was then
read, and when put was defeated, as
may be seen by the official record,
anti city employes must wait another
two weeks for last months pay.
The mayor has very evfdcntly
stood as much nonsense as he pro
poses to with the republican ring.

aldermen, however, who has a sense

alderman, and he is Aid. r. H

Nineteenth Street I'avlnR.
The Nineteenth street paTin"' con
tract, to pave with llock Island brick
has almost fallen through. At least
the Edwards & Walsh Construction
company does not feel disposed to sign
anv sucu contract lor ttie simple rea
son that the National Clay company
cannot furnish brick quick enough.
It Has tnerelore become a necessity
to look in other lields for material,
and with that end in view, the Ed
wards & Walsh company will be seen
regarding its willingness to pave
with Galesburg brick. If it consents
to sign such a contract the work mav
be finished this vear, but otherwise
it is hard to tell when the work will
be completed.
Mew and Fatal Cattle Disease.
A new and very peculiar cattle dis
ease has been discovered in DuPage
county, and of a very fatal character
at that. Last week upon the farm of
a man near V neaton it attacked lire
valuable horses, perfectly healthy,
every one of which died before noon
the day after contracting the disease.
The cases being reported to the state
live stock board. Dr. Trumbower,
the state veterinarian, and Charman
Bartlelt, of the boari, went to the
scene and made personal investiga
tions of the disease. It seems the
recent few showers in that locality
were soon followed by severe and
prolonged drouth which produced
some kind of poison, which peculiar
ly attacked the throat of the victim,
completely chokiDg it to death in a
few hours after the attack. A post
mortem wan held ou the horses that
have died, and it was found that on
each side of their throats great con
gested clots of blood had settled in
the larnyx, which produced violent
spasms of coughing, causing death.
The disease appears to be spasmodic
congestion of the larnyx. This is the
first appearance of the disease in Ill
inois. No new cases of cattle dis
eases are reported from other lacali
ties in the state.

The low water has caused this
wrecked steamer to come near the
surface and become dangerous to
navigation. Pieces of timber from
the sunken vessel were brought ap
and are in an excellent state of pre
servation. as well as many pieces of
the machinery, and in order to clear
the wreck large blasts of dynamite
were placed in the hull, which blew
large pieces out.
Another wreck of still more inter
est was found eight miles farther np,
where a large barge was sunk in
about the year 1X61. This barge
had been loaded with cannon balls
at Ft. Snelling. it was said, for the
purpose of getting them in the hands
of the rebels, but as the pilot was a
loyal union man. he intentionally
run against a snag and sunk the
barge, which has remained in the
bottom of the river ever since. The
balls are in perfect condition, and
will probably be divided around
among G. A. K. camps as relics.

was too large to be nnseen or un

an idea that he was a Sandow at

bcleive thus. A barrel of cylinder
oil weighing about four hundred and
sixty pounds and valued at f 46.33,
which belonged to the city water
works, had been placed under the

safe keeping, and sometime during
