Who Will the Mayor Name Xext
The City's Executive Still quibbling
to all Outward Appearances
The Probable Lncky Ones.
"l Used in Millions of Homes 40 Years the Standard.
To all outward appearances the mayor
is st ill at sea as to his appointments. He
would no doubt like to carry out the ex
pressed understanding of that Sunday
council session, but he would like, too,
to maintain the good will of his friends
and admirers by carrying out his part ot
the agreement only so far as he can do so
without creating offense toward himself.
The mayor's conscientious convictions
are that John A. Murrin should be reap
pointed superintendent of the waterworks
but there has been brought to bear upon
him an influence which is contrary to
such action, and the mayor, instead of
proceeding as duty dictates, has adopted
a plan to evade tbe question of appoint
ment. He has told Mr. Murrin's friends
that if eight aldermen can be secured
who favor his retention, he
will simply pass tht matter of reappoint
ment of the superintendent without ac
tion. This evasive spirit will not strike
many people with favor for if Mr. Mur
rin is worth retaining, he is worth reap
pointing. He was satisfactory to the
mayor two years ago and there is no
reason why he should not be now. In
fact he is better qualified now than be
was twoyears ago, not only ia experience,
but his manner of conducting tbe water
works the improvements he has mile
ane the savings he has made for the ciiy
entitle him more to recognition. Tue
mayor knows there is no excuse or reason
for Mr. Murrin's removal and he should
act manly and either reappoint him or
not permit himself to be swayed
by factions. He should exercise the
functions of his office regardless of tbe
consequence to himself or others.
Fresh hope has sprung into the breast
of "Hank" Harris since the withdrawal of
John Huntoon and he is again after the
street commissionenhip. -He 6tates that
the major bus promised him tbe appoint
ment if he secures the ph-dges of tight
aldermen to vote to confirm him. Harris
boasts that he has the sufficient number
of promises and tfcat he wiil be appointed
The Alters is loathe to believe that there
are eight members of the council who
wouM vote to confirm Harris even if the
mayor dared to reappoint him.
the roncE force.
There are strong reasons for the belief
that few changes will occur on tbe police
force. Chief of Police Miller and Assis
tant Chief Long will not be disturbed.
Certain influences have been at work to
depose Officers Kramer and Sexton, but
it is hardly probable the move will suc
ceed. There are no better officers on tbe
force than they, and it would be a detrS
ment to the service and a lack of recog
nition' of meritorious duty to remoye
them. Ex-policeman P. J. dry expects
to be reinstated und his friends are mak
ing an active canvass in his behalf. It
is understood that if Policeman Glass is
reappointed he will be relegated to a
night beat and Officer Etzel given the
business day patrol.
The mayor would perform a magn : -nimous
act by giving Ex-policeman
Brennan a patrol. Brennan had been
on tbe force so long that bis appearance
without a star doesn't look natural.
While he is not an applicant in any sense
of the word, everybody, irrespective of
party, would like to see John Brennan on
the police force. It is not expected that
the mayor will appoint him. however, but
he could not nevertheless exercise the
prerogative inherent in his office in a more
kindly and popular way-
OTHERS WHO ARE WILLIXG.
Ezra Wilcher and A. U.Ham pton are two
other patriots who are looking for jobs.
Wilcher would like to have the water
works, but would be satisfied with an
engineer's berth. Hampton thinks be
would make a model street commissioner,
but no one else has been found who
t hares the same belief.
For the office of citv weighmar ter, W.
A. Norris and John Evans are talked of.
It is understood though, that Mr. Norris
vill be the appointee, notwithstanding
taat he has already been provided for by
Assessor Cleland as an assisAnt.
For toll gate keeper, W. L. Sweeney
v ill in all probability be reappointed.
For overseer of the poor there is no
likelihood of Charles JSogel being dis
turbed, although Robert Bennett would
dearly love to secure the appointment.
LAYS if TO THE DETECTIVE'S.
An exchange says that the discovery
his been accidently made that flour
thrown on burning oil will extinguish it
iiistantly. An old lady was coming out
of a pantry with a pan of flour when a
li mp exploded and the oil was at once in
flsmes. In her fright she dropped the
p in of flour, which falling on the burn
it g oil, extinguished it. Some one who
h :ard of the incident had an opportunity
of testing it practically soon after, and
tt e device worked exactly as stated- It
is well worth making a note of, as water
is werse than useless in such a case.
The rosy freshness, and a velyety soft
nt ss of the skin is variably obtained by
those who use Pozzoni's Complexion
A Despairing Prisoner's Dramatic He
mark in a Ituflalo Court.
Buffalo, K. Y., May L Tears stood in
the eyes of tbe spectators at the criminal
term of the superior court Tuesday when
Peter Dubois told the story of his life.
He was indicted for horse-stealing aud
pleaded guilty. A casual glance showed
that he was no ordinary-man. He looke.l
a hard -working mechanic, 4j years old,
with deep set blue eyes, iron-gray hair, a
full beard and strong features. Judge
Hatch asked him if he had anything to
say why sentence should not be pro
nounced against him.
Aked the Judge to do His Worst.
The man looked tbe judge squarely in
the face as he said: "I am guilty. Do
your worst, and sand me as long as you
can. I was convicted of stealing nine
years ago," he continued. "Well. I went
to prison and served my term. When I
left prison I decided to lead an honest life,
but the world is against me. I got out
and went to work at tbe Gilbert Car
works. The foreman found out I was
a convict. I did not stop to draw my pay,
but left. At last I got work with Hard
wicke & Ward. I told Mr. Hrdwicke that
I was a convict, that I wanted to reform.
Hounded by the Detectives.
bIn a short time a detectivj came and
said that the superintendent had sent
nini to see how I wa getting along. Mr.
Harwicke wrote a note to Superintendent
Morrey telling him to keep the detectives
away; that he knew my history. I got
along for awhile and was happy with my
wife and family. Two detectives came
and asked about me ou Friday and on
Saturday I was discharged. The fore
man said there was no mora work. I
don't know what I did. I have no recol
lection of taking this horse and buggy,
and as I had nt.t drank for seven years,
the liquor made m? m-ul."
Tried to Live Honestly.
Then his vcrice grew deeper, and he said:
'I lo not ask mercy. Punish me as you
will; I will not take my lilerty and stay
here. I triisl to live an honest life, but
the detectives would not let tm I wa.it
the longest sentence possible."' Justice
Hatch shoved much emotion, and post
poned sentence. The man's story created
a creat ueal of conitueut. and an effort
will ba made to give him another chance.
BELIEVES HE HAS THE RIPPER.
