The new prosecuting officer: In the

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

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.

SCARED THEM OUT.
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. J. JI' DON ALL) Treasurer.
The City hall is one of the .'few.
sources of' revenue the city has and.lt
should be made to yield as much as
possible. - If the exits are nt what
they, ought to be,, they should be fixed
without making too much noise about
them.. This is what the managers of
the theaters did and when' they had
-(things .ju .first class order Jfl'c.v asked
the. papers to "tell the publKall about
what they had done to protect life -and
limb in case of fire. . The City; hall
building is all right, but you can't
make some people. think -so -'any more.

an ex-member of congress, a lady hav
ing an inordinate love of display and
who; very rich, delights in wearing as
much jev elrj- as she possibly can. Ono
evening she gave a grand dif nerpartyr
at which she appeared decorated with a
diamond tiara and many rope of pearls
round her neck. In the midst of the
feast the lady suddenly declared that she
felt chilly, and, desiring a servant to
call her maid, she said out loud when the
girl arrived: "Susette. I am so cold.
Please, fetch me another string
pearls."
