Weeks QX Company of Chicago. There were more troubles in the city waterworks matter this week. It was thought last .Saturday that the contract would bo let on Monday even ing wheu a meeting of the council and loard of public works had been called for the purpose of letting the contract. Tne board of public works met first and after making several corrections and additions to the papr, the princi ple one leing a clause providing for a penalty of $" per day for delays, etc. over above and the time of completion, the board passed favorably on the contract, which means that they let it. Tne council was called together immediately following the board meeting and the work of the boant came up for them to ratify. There was considerable opposition developed to the letting of the contract, the principal objections tn'ing to the pump purchased and to the cement to Ir used in the construction of the dam. Alderman Bryson was in favor of pur chasing two pumps of less capacity than ti e one contracted for and of using a better gra te of cement. The WENT TO ONTONAGON. Chas. C.

Up to 10:00 the day of the convention there was no aspirant for the office from any county but Iron, but at the eleventh hour Mr. Brown sprung up and won the nomination by one vote. In explanation of the matter it. may ho said that there was a feeling throughout the other counties of the district that Iron county whs not en titled to the oflice a-t it had had the representative for eight years and had good prospects of winning out the scnatorship. To this argument the Iron county people agreed but tl.onght that if the other countif s wanted tho nomination they might to have" put forth a candidate before the day of the convention for, iiad they done ko Iron would have had no candidate. But the scheme was concocted and Mr. Byers withdrew from the ract stipulating that the Iron ror.nty cast its votes for a Baraga county man. No man could be foun 1 in Baraga county that would go ailer it so tho vole .,f Iron and Kecwt naw. 11 in all were cu-t, for Bou'cr ('. Williams, of L'An-e, who would have taken it if nominated and the vote of hitoiiagon and Baraga, 2 in all, were cast foi (.'has. ( Brown. Mr. Brown was declared the hoice of the convent ion.

At tlw meeting Wednesday evening all of tho differences of opinion had been eliminated and the contract was let with .but on change from the original plans and that change is in the installing of two pumps instead of one a-j was tho original intention. Tho same large pump that was pur chased at the outset will be kept but in addition a smaller pump will be installed so as to provide a relay in caso that anything should happen to tho big ine during a fire.
