s New Trial Aftked.
A motion for a new trial was ar
gued this morning in the case of Mrs.

in which the plaintiff secured a ver
dict of damages before Judge Trim
ble at the January term of court,

From present appearances the suit
of William Xevin against the city for
$17.(K)0 for the building of the Twenty
fourth street storm drain upon the
claim that he was the real contract
or, instead of Matthias Schnell, seems
in a fair way to collapse. Aid. 11. Y.
McCaskrin, who filed the suit as Kev
in's attorney, has withdrawn his ap
pearance and the cause is in conse
quence without legal talent to su-
port it, at least for the time being.
Then yesterday afternoon City At
torney Scott, in behalf of the defense.
filed a motion for the plaintiffs to
put up bond for the costs of the suit
and Judge (lest entered an order re
quiring that the bond be put up not
later. than next Monday afternoon.
The same course was pursued with
reference to the suit of Mr. Schnel'
gainst the city on the same head.
and unless the bond is forthcoming
V the above time the suits will be
stricken from the docket.

FOR HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS
The first step at providing the girls
at the high school with a course tak
ing the place of the manual training
for the boys has been made and
classes in "basketry" have leen form
ed and placed in charge of Miss Ab

Many of the girls have enrolled and
three periods have been set apart
for this work. The pupils use rattan
and other materials prepared for the
manufacture of fancy baskets anil va
rious ornnamental articles. Th.
course of instruction is calculated to
give skill in the use tf the hands in
a general way, rather than to teach
an art of particular value in itself.
