The new prosecuting officer: In the citj court. Attorney C. E. Slelgs, took office this morning; and Judge Peasley presided. Thomas Bree, arrested by Officer J. McCarthy last evening at 0 o'clock for intoxication, was fined $10 and costs, and given sixty days pro bation. A bandage across Stains Markls' nose indicated that he had been in a lively shindy last evening. : Markis lives on Riverside street and last even ing he was, with a crowd that whs making a great real of noise outside the house he lives in. Officer Walsh told the crowd to disperse and all in it had the good sense to obey his ad vice only Markis. He .went in after being told two or three times. The officer then resumed his beat and was going down the street when he thought he heard footsteps behind. . Turning about he saw Markis with a carpen ter's hammer in his hand. There was a tussle. Markis tried to use the ham mer but the officer got in the first blow and the bandage across Markis' nose was the result. Markis was fined ?10 and costs and placed on probation sixty days. The colored boy Herbert Jackson, who has been locked up since Thurs day on a" charge of theft of $15 from Annie Graves, Avas charged on two ad ditional counts to-day with theft of a gold ring, an opal ring, a pair of cull buttons and eye glasses from Dr F. G. Graves, all of the value of $40; and also with theft of a gold watch val ued at $45 and an overcoat of the val ue of $1, the property of B. W, Moor ing. ' He pleaded guilty to the three. On the last two he was sentenced to 120 days in jail and for the theft of $15 ho was fined $7 and costs. After the jail sentence is served he shall be given sixty days' probation in which to pay the fine. ". Daniel Scanlon and Adam Boise, em ployed at the garbage crematory, got into a muss Saturday evening. Boise was fined $15 and costs and $5 and costs for intoxication and breach of the peace and Scanlon was fined $5 and costs. - 1 A complaint against Charles Daly for intoxication" and breach of the peace was continued to ' to-morrow morning as he was unable to appear in court. f i Pasquale Ciniinero, owner of Ward's Flats, was charged with selling liquor yesterday in his apartments over his saloon at G42 Bank street and keeping open a place reputed to be a place where liquor is -sold .without a license. The evidence which was furnished by Officers J. McCarthy, Haj'es and Walsh was to the effect that the place has the reputation charged. Hayes and Walsh went to the place yesterday afternoon and found half a dozen men there drinking beer. In a closet theyi found a number of empty beer cases. They seized two bottles of beer. Of ficer Walsh" testified that Ciminero was very agry at the police and pum melled the table and swore and took a revolver out of his pocket and gave it to his wife when they entered.. A fine of $200 and costs was imposed and an appeal was taken. ' . t A CITY WITHOUT TAXES. All the Expenses of Freudenstadt, Germany, Paid by Property Income In the Black Forest of Germany is the little city of Freudenstadt with, 'about 7.000 inhabitants, busy industrial place with iron and chemical works of some importance, says the New York Sun. ' Small; as It Is, Freudenstadt is a full fledged city with a mayor, aldermen, half a dozen policemen and a fire engine. The public business is conducted on an economical basis, and the total ex "penses do not exceed $25,000 in a year. Freudenstadt has the distinction of being the only city in Germany, and per haps in: the world, which does not tax the citizens a dollar for municipal, ex penses. The yearly net revenue." from the public property covers all the outgo. This property consists of about 6,000 acres of fine forest, -which, being man aged under the best forestry methods, is a permanent source of income. 'One or more trees are planted for every one that is cut down.' No tree is cut till It can yield the maximum profit. After deducting all the expenses of the industry the annual profit to the acre is about five dollars. This is ex ceptional even for Germany, where the annual profit ranges from $3 to $4.50. The question Is often aeked in this country whether it will pay to keep land under permanent forest. Unless at least a moderate profit ia possible; no one can be expected to grow trees on land that can be used for any other purpose. The Rhode Island experiment station is now giving some attention to this question, and m a bulletin just prepared by Prof. F. W. Card some interesting figures are presented. He cites the ex perience of Zachariah Allen, of Rhode Island, who planted' a worn pasture with .trees in 1820 and kept a careful financial record till 1877, 67 years. After deduct ing all expenses he found that his profit was nearly seven per. cent, per annum on the original investment. There is also a record of the returns on a 40-acre tract of white pine In New Hampshire for 80 years, during which time the average annual profit was $3.75 an acre. The facts given by Prof. Card seem to show that only a moderate profit is to be expected from forests treated as a permanent cropp. Perhaps we cannot make as much money in this Industry as is made in Europe, where every part of a tree can be marketed at some price, even the small branches and twigs being gathered into,bundles ane" 60ld for firewood.

Foresters Wont Rebate en Price on Account of Lost Patronage. It looks now a$ if the scare start ed about the Cltr. hall was all unne cessary; and amounted to nothing eX cept to put the city to ft lot of expens and lessen the receipts ; by, i socletien who had the place rented. It was takin to the insinuation that the sys tem of bookkeeping in the comptrol ler's office was antiquated and mscdoJ immediate, attention but after looking it over, Mr Manvel; who straighten! out. the mwltI in Watertown, couldn't find anything that he thought wa not up to the times. But that" s another mattery Societies are out on account of the talk about people being xre mated In the halt in cae of fire and organizations who had planned rot big houses before this talk got aroumj the city ought to be willing to bear a share of the lost patronage ana want a rebate on th price of the hall. Representing the local Foresters, John J. McDonald has submitted tin following communication to tit board of public works: Waterbury, 'February li, 1WJ. Hon John P. Elton, City. Hon Sir 1 would respectfully aic the board of commissioners of publla works, or such other board or commit tee who may have power in the prem ises, to grant a rebate In the rent of th City hall for the seven nights ending-January 23, 11)08. during which time' it wag occupied by, the Forester of America, the occasion, being their annual fair for the following reasons, via: ;-, . When the hall wag engaged tu're were no restrictions as to the number of admissions, only so far as common safety and comfort were concerned. We had all our tickets, issued and printing done, when the honorahle board Qf public works placed a limit on admissions, making 1,100 the limit. Last year w took at the door ; an amount equaling 1,700 admissions at 15 eentg each, amounting to $255. TiUs year, when Sheriff Rlgney ordered us to stop selling tickets, we had sold 1,104, making $166.60. On Wednes day night a great many people stayed away,-,the reason given . in many in stances .that they did not think they would be admitted if they should pre sent themselves at the door. The sanies is also true of Saturday night, Janu ary 16. The wea.ther being so unus ually severe, kept the attendance down, to about the level of the thermometer and we depended on the three nights specified to keep up the average at tendance. -; . - - V' ," . V ,:., ; For the above reasons, we would respectfully ask the rebate petitioned for, with our assurance that the For esters of America, In common with every other fraternity In the ty, will always be found ready and willing to aid and assist the authorities in all measures adopted for the well being of our citizens. ; Respectfully yours, General Committee Foresters of America, J.
