Though it was all settled a few days ago the dispute between the Piatt Bros of Brown street and the Grace Baptist colored congregation, who are building a church on Kingsbury street, has broke out afresh and now seems as though it would go to court. The dis pute is over the right of way to cer tain waters on the site on which the church is going up. The land was sold by F. J. Kingsbury to the congrega tion, but the Piatt Bros own a covered over reservoir near by and have for fifty years to come the right of way to certain water pipes from the reser voir, A few days ago an agreement was drawn up- by Attorney Terry, rep resenting Mr Kingsbury. Colonel Bur pee, representing the Piatt Bros, con sented to the agreement and It was then presented to the church people for Ignatures They refused to sign it. They contended that the Piatt Brosi should take care of the pipes. S Bros conten(Jed otherwise, and Jjiat if anything happened the pipes the church people would be held accountable. For a long time the pipes have been doing their work without in terference or repairs, and if thev got out of order now it would evidently be through the cause of the church, the weight of the building on the ground over them, Interference in one way or another because of the proximitv of the building. The Piatt Bros refused to accept any other action from the church people but their signatures, and as they would not give that overtures of peace have been cast aside. There is an injunction on the church people prohibiting them from going ahead with building their church, which Is in a stage far from completion. MADE PUBLIC STATEMENT. Circular.

POLICE COURT DOINGS North End Prowler Was Before Judge Burpee in City Court To-Day. The supposed "Jack the Hugger' who has been tat largo in the north end for some time was befoi-e Judge Bur pee in the city court to-day charged with breach of the peace by chasing three little girls, Lizzie and Mamio McPartland, sisters, and Alice Mc Gulre. Lizzie said she was coming from church wltlh her sister about 8:30 o'clock, and that at Hill street she saw Wie accused alight from the ear and make faces. At first she and her sis ter thought the man was jeering at someone in the car, but subsequently she became convinced they were the objects of his attention. He ran un til 'he got near them whereupon they walked slowfly to give him a chance to go ahead. But he kept time to their footsteps. . When they walked fast, he would also wmlk fast. At last they obliged him to go ahead of them and then he stopped at a house from which 'be watched their ap proach. lie was evidently waiting for them and they becoming alarmed went to a nefcrhhormcr lmnsA find. asked a man to accompany them home. The man did so and then he set out to capture the annoying stranger. This was done without much trouble nud an officer was sent for. Officer Cav anaugh arrived and In 'his presence the three girts Identified the man. Though ho spoke fair English to the girls and the officer ho "was unable to speak a word In that language to-day. A volunteer, ! Interpreter, evidently a friend of the accused,, stated his sido of the case and was so unxlous to help him that lie stated the whole story, or what he had prepared to tell, before asking the accused a question. A fine of $10 and costs was imposed. Vincenzo Grinoll was accused of be ing intoxicated yesterday. The man was unabae to speak English, but the look "on his face said as plainly as looks can: "The idea of charging me with drunkenness. I wasn't drunk, I couldn't get drunk. How could I be drunk when I was carting coal all day long? Could a man keep his feet on a day like yesterday, cart coal and be drunk? Guess not." Yet Officer Bergin and Detective Gorman stated they found the. man on the green in charge of a coal wagon, drunk and howling like an Indian. He was fined $5 and costs. James Maloney, his companion, was fined the same amount for the same offense. Thomas McNamara for being drunk Saturday was fined $5 and costs also. WHY CARNEGIE SAILED. THE A. F, Taylor Co. 43 CENTER STREET. Over Adams Express OQce. Dealrrs to Make III Daughter Chrlitmai Present. NEW YORK, I:c. 8. Andrew Car ncgie's reason for disregarding his Lon don physician's advice and sailing on the Oceanic for New York last Wednes day has become known. It is Mr. Carnegie's desire, stronger than any fear of the evil results of an ocean trip in winter, to give to, his lit tle daughter Margaret a Christmas present of the new mansion at Fifth avenue and Ninety-first street. On Christmas day, his health permitting, he will give a house wanning, and the magnificent structure will be presented to the light of the household. The fam ily on arrival will go direct to the nef house. This wish of the fair's heart has been delayed too 1? .Jredy in thfl mind of Mr. Carnegie. Th a house was to have been occupied a year ago, but the magnitude of the work had been miscalculated. Men were engaged night and day during the year now passing to make sure that there would be no further postponement. Now all is in readiness for the arrival next Wednesday of Mr. and Mrs. Car negie and Margaret. Mr. Carnegie s private secretary as well as the house hold staff came to New York several days ago and have superintended the finishing touches. The great entrance In Ninety-first street, Just around the corner from Fifth avenue, has been kept locked so that the little mistress of the new home, with her father and that door. " It will certainly take Miss Margaret Carnegie many days to get acquainted with her Christmas present, which is worth house. land and garden fully, $2,500,000. - - JAIL FOR A MAYOR. Chief Official and Council of Denver Iuntahed For Contempt. DENVER, Dec. 8. The mayor and the entire city council of Denver have been sentenced to jail for four months for contempt In passing and signing tho tramway franchise bill. The conviction of Denver's mayor and aldermen was brought about by the Municipal league, a reform organ ization. When the commissioners of Arapahoe county were defeated at the polls on Jan. 1 last, they declared that they would get even with the people for their defeat and arranged to givo different street railway 'corporations a rebate of $600,000. The Municipal league secured an injunction, and the commissioners waited. The board of aldermen then declared its intention to grant the Denver City Tramway company a twenty year franchise, with privilege to grant five cent fares and no transfers. The league enjoined the board from doing this, but the franchise was granted over the court order. RIVER CHANGES COURSE. Tia ttt MlMoarl Move Three Mile In a Day. NEBRASKA CITY, Neb., Dec. 8. The Missouri river has played a huge Joke on this city. On Thursday night it flowed at the doors of the town. The next night It suddenly changed its channel, and it is now three miles away. The greater part Of the big Burling ton railroad bridge now spans dry land. The waterworks are left high and dry. The pumping station is without con nection, and a water famine prevails. All the river craft were left on the sand vir iu small ywio ui v u. i... . The Iowa territory thus suddenly tossed over into Nebraska is not all sand, for there are many productive farms in the tract. The change of channel means a change of state citi zenship to more than a score of farm ers, j
