19 ARRESTS MADE 1 li L w BURNS AND ANDREWS ARE TAK EN INTO CUSTODY BY THE1 POLICE. F0RDtSR01INGITrSREC0Ri)S Both of the Defandants Make Bonds in the Sum of $10,0C0 Arrests Made by Chief Barthell Value of Books Given at $5,000. L IsASHVILLE, Tenn., June 19 City Commissioner Lyle Andrews and City Comptroller Miles Burns were arrest ed at about 6 o'clock Friday after noon on a state warrant sworn out by Mayor Howse charging them with de stroying valuable records of the city. A warrant for the arrest of john B. West, Jr., assistant city treasurer, was also issued, but West, who left town suddenly about ten days ago' on the eve of the audit of the city's books, could not be located. Andrews and Burns made bond in the sum of $10,000 each before Justice of the , Peace A. B. Spain, before whom the warrants were sworn. E. A. Glennon, former saloonist, signed the commissioner's bond, while Burns bond was signed by I. T. Rhea, Charles D. Johnson and J. Mert Win stead. Burns and Andrews have been or dered to appear before Esq. Spain this morning at 11 o'clock. They in timated while in the courtroom Fri day afternoon, that they would waive examination in the magistrate's court and be bound over to the criminal court The arrests were made by Chief of Police Alex Barthell and City Detec rtive Cummings within thirty minutes after the mayor swore out the war rants. Mayor Howse, as he promised, "hewed to the line" as soon as he learned definite information, and the documents were issued following a prolonged conference in the office of his attorneys, Pitts & McConnico The crime charged against the three defendants jointly is a violation of the statutes of the states incorpor ated in Section 6557 and 6559 of Shan non's Code, which code section pro rides that whoever takes of destroys such public records,-books and docu ments with intent to injure or de fraud shall be punished as if guilty of larceny. The warrant charges the value of the missing books is more than $5,000, and the punishment for grand larceny is imprisonment in the penitentiary for not less than three or more than ten years. The Issuance of these warrants mark the culmination of one step, at least, in the criminal prosecution which will follow the recent city hall scandal. The arrest of the officials still gives no clue to the police to the hiding place of the books of the city, al though $2,000 reward is offered for the arrest and cnvictlon of the guilty parties.

The Columbia Water ft Light Com pany., is placing new service water pipes on all the streets where the new paving ordinances will apply. This will be done so that the tearing up of the streets wTiere the paving has been placed can be .obviated. It will be no easy matter to tear up the new pavement and replace it in as good condition as it was before the work was done and for that reason the water company is getting all new service pipes in the ground. About 1,000 feet to the block will be laid on the seven blocks to be paved at a to tal cost to the company of about $600. TELEPHONE POLE FALLS0N SAGER MT.

E WILL BE STRICTLY IN ACCORD ANCE WITH GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS. CONCRETE MATERIAL TO BE USED Nothing Whatever Will Be Wasted and the Plant Will Be Absolutely Clean and Perfectly Sanitary in Every Respect A deal that has been on foot fot several weeks was brought to a close Friday night at the special meeting of the board of mayor and aldermen when the committee appointed by the city to handle the mutter ' signed a contract with the enterprising busi ness merchant J. C. Parks for the erection of an un-to-date abattoir within the city limits A resolution was drawn and passed by the board authorizing the closing of Third street at the interaction of North Garden, and it is at this point that Mr. Parks will erect the new build ing, which will hi f concrete, and erected strictly .1 accordance with government plans and specifications. Mr. Parks was seen this morning about the new building and stated that he could not ;ivr out any details about the size of the building, as he had not received nis plans from the government, but stated that It would be built of concrete and strictly in accordance with ali modern methods of slaughtering cattle hogs and other animals, and a large cooling or drip room would also be built. Mr. Parks stated further that he would consume n some way every part of the beef cattle, hogs, sheep, etc., that were slaughtered by him Nothing will be wasted. No offal will be thrown into the rlvsr or lost in any way. The abattoir .v!ll ne built just north of the old cemetery on the large bluff overlooking the rive." and will be sup plied with water from the city main. Contract between Mr. Parks and the city specifies tLat the plant shall not cost less than $1,000 nor more than $2,500, without the consent of the city, and .hat the city has the right to take over the property at any time, by reimbursing Mr. Parks, and making a public place of slaughter and inspection. It is the intention of the city to do this, in fact at :he next meeting night the first Tuesday night in July an or dinance will be submitted on its first reading looking to the taking over of the property and the appointment of an inspector. This will not mean that all the butchers of the city will have to kill at this place, but It means that they will have to lake their cattle, hogs and sheep to the abattoir for an ante-mortem and post-mortem exam ination and that the inspector will have certain hours to visit the estab lishment and hold these inspections, the inspector to i ceive a compensa tion from the butcher for each head slaughtered and examined. The may or will have the authority to appoint the inspector and as a matter of fact a graduate veterinarin will get the Jos. MRS. HARRIET DYER GOES TO REWARD GOOD WOMAN SUDDENLY EX PIRES DURING SATURDAY NIGHT. Mrs. Harriet Dyer died at the home of her only son, W. W. Dyer, sometime Saturday night on early Sunday morning. Saturday night she retired apparently in best of health, but Sunday morning when called she failed to respond and was found dead in her bed by her grandson. Mrs. Dy er was born in New . York State in 1846 and hence had almost reached the allotted three score and ten, she being 69 years of ago. Mrs. Dyer had for many years been a devoted and consecrated member of the First Presbyterian church of this city. She was known wherever there was sickness or trouble and by her unfailing kindness and cheerfulness won for herself a host of friends who will find it hard indeed to fill the place that Is left vacant by her death. Her funeral took place at the home of her son, W. W. Dyer, on the Pulaski pike at 4 o'clock Tuesday aft ernoon. Rev. Mr. Spears, pastor of the Frierson Memorial church conducted the services. Immediately afterward the remains were taken to Fall River, Wis., for Interment The following win act aa pan bear ers: J. Lem Thomas, William J. Al exander, Christopher T. Looney, Hen ry 0.

NAMiS OF STREAMS TO BE GIVEN Road Traverses Section That Is Un usually Rich in Historical Associa- tionsOf Vast Benefit to the Tour Ista. t Points of Interest, particularly scenes of battles, army and brigade headquarters, and the names of prin cipal streams along Its lines will be marked by the Nashville, Chattanoo ga & St. Louis Railway, so that the traveler may easily see from the car windows the sites of some of the most prominent engagements of the Civil War; in fact, the work of estab lishing these markers has already be gun. The markers are cast in metal and mounted on railroad rails, set in concrete. The tablets are painted white and the black lettering makes the marker easily discernable. For instance there is a marker at Smyrna, Tenn., showing the place where Sam Davis was born; a marker which shows that the stream about to be crossed is Stones river, and an other that the Tennessee river is soon to be crossed; another marker shows the site of Bragg's army ; 'another the scene of the battle of Murfreesboro. There, will also be markers show ing the various engagements around Chattanooga, Lookout Moun tain and Missionary Ridge. The At lanta campaign will also be marked at various points on the Western & Atlantic as will also the point where the engine, "General," was captured and the point where it was retaken by the Confederates in what is known as the "Andrews Raid." The "General" now occupies a place of honor In the union station at Chattanooga and is viewed by thousands annually. While the work of establishing these markers has not been complet ed, the traveler may even now get a good Idea of the scope of the work un dertaken and the general fund of in formation regarding the points of his torical interest in the South wiU be of considerable interest to the travel er. There is no others railroad in the country which is richer in points of historical interest, than the N., C. & SL L, for along its lines were fought many of the great battles of the Civil War. While these points of interest ' are well known to the citizens or these several communities, at the same time they are not known to the , traveler, and these markers will add interest to his trip, now fiat these ' points can be traced from the car ' windows as the lettering oa the tab- j lets will be large enough to oe easily read. The Idea of marking the important streams will also prove a grat help to the traveler. Seldom does a train cross a stream that 3ome passenger does not ask of his neighbor the name ot the stream Just crossed. And usu ally the passenger, unless he be a na j tlve, does not know. The new work has particular appeal to those who fought in the war of the states, and to their descend ants a trip through the South will now have an added Interest for they oaa observe the sites of the battles of which they have heard their fatner or grand father talk. The thought fulness of the management of the road in establishing these markers has been the subject of much favora ble comment Heavy, Impure blood makes a mud dy, pimply complexion, headaches, nausea, Indigestion. Thin blood makes you weak, pale and sickly For pure blood, sound digestion, use Burdock Blood Bitters. 1.00 at all stores.

FORMAL PROTESTS ARE IIADI Contract Entered Into With J. C Parks for the Erection of an Abat toir, Bringing Long Pending Negoti ations to a Conc'uiion. . i All legal obstacles have now been swept aside for the paving of the main streets in busiuesi uortion of the city wjth asphaltlc concrete. At the meeting of the board of mayor and aldermen on Friday night resolu tions duly artlfying and approving the paving ordinances were properly pass ed and a meeting will be held this aft ernoon at which time a resolution will .be adopted authorizing the may or and recorder to advertise for bids for the construction of new Btreets. All of the members of the board were present except Alderman Park er and the resolution of ratification was passed by a vote of live to one, the negative vote being cast by Al dermen Cherry who had voted against the ordinances on their orig inal passage. There were no speeches in protest, but Attorney William S. Fleming, Sr., appeared and filed on behalf of a number of protestants a formal petition. There was no de bate on the matter. The board also entered Into a con tract with Jos. C. Parks for the con struction and operation of an aoattoir or slaughter house. The negotiations have been pending between the city and Mr. Parks for some time and the board's action assures tthe city an abattoir. It is thought probable that follow ing the action of the board this aft ernoon in authorizing the recorder and mayor to advertise for bids on the construction of the new pave ments that bids will be solicited for about July 10 and that if there are no unexpected delays or hitches that, the work on the streets should begin not later than August L THIRTY-SIX FOR 25 CENTS Dr. King's New Life Pills are now supplied in ; well-corked glass bot tles, containing 36 sugar coated white pills, for 25c.

Saturday and Sunday were the hot test days of the year. Sweltering humanity felt the heat much no" than usual on account of being un accustomed to it. Mrs. Joe Fleming. the official government observer ' Ashwood, reports the highest temper ature to have been 94, it being tba same for both days. Although pal beach clothes are the order of th day and sleepless nights are the re sult of the intense heat, the present hot spell is not in the class with the corresponding period of last yeaT when the thermometer often reached 101. The highest temperature pre viously reported this year was 91.
