With the exception of the grading of Fulton street and the employment of local lalor in its construction the road has been of little benefit to anyoue aud I as of all to its proprietors who muat Qecto-arily lost a considerable amount of mouey. There has been lor a long time a lmgeriug hope that the Consol idated Compauy would purchase the road and alter connecting it with its Ltt Fuliou street track operate it as a bvll line in connection with the Sher man street track. The ofheers of the Consolidated system say however that they do not waul the road at any price. The residents along the route demand that the cars shall either bo run regu larly or tne franchise be forfe.ted and the tracks removed. A petition to that effect 1 now before tne council and tne committee on streets will recoui mend thai the franchise be forfeited December 10 if the cars are not operat ed as required.

The fol lowing report of the committee on teachers was submitted by Chairman atevens; Your committee oa teachers respect fully recommend that John S. Mao donald, Hugh E. Wilson and Clinton Odorn be appointed as additional night school teachers, at a salary of $1.50 per night, they to commence work in the order named, as the neces sity for additional teachers arises. Your committee further recommend that first grade certificates be granted to Helena C. Christ, special teacher of German, and Elizabeth Thompson, a graduate of the Colorado State Lui- veraity. Respectfully submitted, F. W, Stevens. The report w as adopted. Upon motion of Trustee Fitzgerald bis resolution submitted one wet ago tor the introduction of kindergarten work in the Diamond and North Divi sion streets school was taken from the tat le. A motion to adoot brought out considerable discussiou. Trui-te Housemau opposed it because he thought the schools were becoming overloaded with pretty things and tiiat there was nj money to be expended this year for something that has not proven a success and that the people have notdemanded. He thought par ents should take care of their babies and not ak tne taxpayers to pay for nur series. The resolutiou was supported oy lrustt es ntzgerald, lilantord, Hogg, Wagner and llusted alio thought the work would prove beneficial as a foun dation for the subsequent school work. trustee llradheid offered a substi tute to the lesolution that Fountain street school be substituted for Dia mond streeet as then were competent teachers in that school who could handle the department without extra expense. The tub titute was adopted and when the resolution as amended came up for a vote, SupU Chalmers stated that kindergarten wutk had be come ingrafted into the public school svtein m several of the foremost cities in the country and that it was proving a SUCCCBS. Trustee Stein had been approached by advocates of the system aud had noticed they were all teachers in kin dergarten work or had aparalus to sell. II it is adon ed any where he was in favor of placing it in all the schools in the city that all nxght test it at the same time. The reso.ution was adopted by a vote of 15 to J. The committee on schools recom mended that night schools be estab lished in the Hall, Congrcssand Seventh street schools, and that the janitors be clothed with police, powers. Adopted. The committee on aparatus reported $17.83 worth of electrical apparatus for the high school which was adopted. Trustee Houseman's resolution allow ing Truant Officer Fee $15 a month for the support of his horse was adopted. Upon motion of Trustee Maybury the revised rules were taken from the table and considered by paragraphs. They were paused as published in the Tellgram-Hebald of last Monday morning. DR. FAIR REVIEWED. A Correspondent abows Son JLIlaT t Discrepancies, Editor of the Telfgram-IIehald: Seldom does it In-come a Christian to indulge in the uncandid display of in terogatory polemics, and much more reprehensible is it in the pedantic dis play of condition to smother truth by an appeal to the dramatic nature of history. Christ anty little gains by the effusive errors of a misguided intellect thongh garnished by the flowers of 'betoric in the discussion of a philo sopicai principle or of an historical fact. Attention has been called to the bu colic method of treating the subject of unity in Christianity by the Rev. Ca nipt ell Fair, in a recent issue of your journal. However the gentleman has instructed the public in the proper use of "italics" and the jejune adapta bility of sophomorial inter-'--ion points to a question involving the speculative thought of the jrorld. Ho hss taken unfair advantage of a lecturer in a way that asks for reproof 00 one hsnd and ex planation on another, tie has asked "fifteen questions" upon historical and theoioe cl Miints, welt known g that a numi'skull is capable of propounding more questions in a moment tnan a philosopher could answer in a week in the endeavor to stimuUte doult as to the authent city of Cathdic succession unity and universality. With pedant c gravity also has he referred us to so"e questionable authority ujxin the "vari ations" of the Catholic faith forgetting that a "variation" of discipline in one way compromises the terns of a rcl g ious belief. I have no claims to that degree of celebrity tn ercitsnsPcal cir cles wh ch privileges me to the appro prat on of theo:ot cal tithes yet it has teen my good fortune to have retd cm wrist of tne doctrine held by the Catholic church and the belhgereut telifs of other ftlucal syt?ns to the concluding opinion if l unity and unvers4i!ty were d.siinctive chsr-art-r;st c of th former while doubt and balsfui uncerta ntf 'he domioant elements of th lat ter.

The expression consequently of the versatile gent eman must, to th serious members ot his flock, give rise to grave questions of hypocracy. But 1 dispute the truth of his declara tive interrogations m toto, notwdh standing hisUauessan versatility. I do this not only ia order to bring him to a d.rect issue but to give him an oppor tunity of showing his flock that tie is not mistaken and that there is so:ne philosophical reasons for the existence of the faith that is in him. I wih, also, to discover in what depository the gentleman preserves the faith once "delivered to the saints." and how he reconciles his conflicting doctrines with the oneness ot christian dogma. If the gentleman wishes to answer these he will tind me willing to follow hun with charity aud urbanity. I will teach hun solid lessons in theology, history and philosophy, guaranteeing him in advance that his doctrines will t et be served by avoiding the question able teat of polemics througu the popu lar avenues of the pre. M. B. Patent. MANACER CARWOOD ANSWERED. A Woman Tells Why the Theatres Are Not Filled. Editor Telegram-IJckald: After nearly every performance given at Powers' the public receives a merci less scoring by the press for non-appreciation of the managers eilorts to se cure attractions worthy of patronage, and in a late issue Manager Garwood oilers a reward for light on the subject of non-attendance. May it not be just possible that the public al-o have cause lor complaint? Times without-number weNpay good dollars to hear, as we fondly hope, a first-class entertainment, instead of which we are bored by a lot of third rate players, and are coolly informed in next morning s paper that the com pany we paid to see flayed in some of the larger cities the night before! Pleasant, isn't it? "The City Direct ory" is a casw in point. If by chance a "star" really does put m an appearance the support is usually of a kind to make the angels we- p, to say nothing of an ordinary earthly audience! Everybody has a kindly feeling for jolly, bright Nellie Mclie'nry, but the amusement loving people of Grand Rapids have been caugnt too many times to nibble even ' at that alluring bait, and Nillie mournfully contrasted the empty array of seats with thepack ed house she used 10 play to here. And who can describe that two hours tor ture? The constant repetition of three or four people talking in concert the wild-eyed yonngimtn, whom the audi ence devoutly vashed might be turned to the wall, mstead of thii picture be wailed about, once the tour raw-boned, ungainly lady artists (?) were only parts of a mo-it dreary performance. No play of any pretention can bt prop erly "put on" at Power's owing to the smallness of the stage, and people are tired of being treated to bits aud frag ments of plays. ; So long as the present schedule of prices is persisted in, poor houses and light receipts will te the outcome. Fifty and seventy-five cents for the lower floor and fifty cent for the sec ond for all ordinary attractions, with $1 and $1.50 for extra tine performan ces would insure good attendance where now night after mzht empty seats are the rule. Redmond's is a forcible illus tration of this. fact. Seven nights each week to packed houses, contrasted with about three nights a week to quarter fitted houses is a very good argument in favor of popular prices. Then when an attraction is billed that at the umal prices would fill the house, up goes the price of seals, and the usual state ot allairs prevails. There is no reason for an increase of price fr "Tie Rivals," and it will be surprising if the papers do not report a poor house .v usual, although the play is one that all Grand Rap.ds would like to see. Many prefr remaiuing at home un less they can occupy the most desira ble scats, and with a family of three or four, two dollars apiece makes quite an extensive evening's entertainment, coupled with the conscioifness that it will be an utter impossibility for the play to b prsduced as they have seen it in Chicagoor New York at the same price. No use trying, Manager Gsrwood. The people will never, never pay the present price. I do not rt wet my suggestion to ! followed, nether do I exect the of fered reward, but do maintain that the true inwardness of the n.atP-r w herein stated. Mm. CD.

SHTSTER UMILRS A5D THEIR TRICiS How th laeaperleoee Coaothlsll cote Aro rioecod oy lUe Tultwroa Kb b warns About the TrifcuaaU o( Justice l'l.ssl Tratka. "Did you ever visit the polfc court or justic courts? Did you notic the well and indifferently dressed iniivid uals who loiter lazily in th seats on the iuside of th railing? Did you ever pay particular attention to them? If so you observed them setting there. Court usually opens in th morning atout ami o'clock. At that hour, on ordinary occasions, there is nothing of interest to call Out spectators. Long before the judge puts in an appearance a number of persons may be seen mak ing tr.eir bow to the janitor and com plaining because the room is cold. They are well acquainted with one another. Some shake hands and others simply exchange the courtesies of the day. They monopolize the most convenient chairs and for awhile ex change the new jokes acquired the night before. They have a singular "l've-seen-better-da'ys" aspect about them, and an assumed dignilied bear ing which tits them as lojsely as their Prince Albert coats. "Haa-betn" or "would.be" is plainly written upon their exteriors. They slide down in their scats until their heads rest on the back of the chairs. They borrow a chew of tobac co from a policeman who unfortunate ly happens in with some duty to per form. For a time contentment p rches in their nn 1st. The dust on the ragged carpet is converted into mud by volu minous expectorations of juice brewed from the filthy weed. One or tvo of them carry umbrellas, but to give clear titles to them would be an utter impos sibility. The braid on their coats is worn, the elbows shiuy, and the gar ment faded eyerywhere except under the collar. In the past clean collars have been known to adorn their necks, but not latdy. "Who are these men?" They belong to a class known as shyster lawyers. To be a shyster one must have lot all sense of modesty and in a measure de parted with honest scruples. The can didate must cultivate a bard, cold, de liberate "gall." His "cheek" must be his predominating characteristic. Abil ity is not an essential quahlication, in fact, it is rather a detriment. This must be tru, because the most success ful shyster does not possess that other wise desirable commodity. The tactics pursued by this pettifogger is simple enough. The first thing in the morn ing the newspapers are read and a memorandum made of all persons ar rested during the previ us evening. Ou the list there may lie several drunks, a couple of disorderlies, one or two who have committed a Preach ot the peace, a pair witn a cnarge of assault and battery banging over their head, meu complained of for larceny, robbery, attempting to kill a wife, kre piug saloon open alter hours, and other little o.Tenes. The court officer is heard ascending the stairway leading into the prisoner's pen, and soon men and women, with bleary eyes, "some in silk aud some in rags," some with big heads and some th 'Mags," hie in and take seats upon the wooden benches. Now, if ever, is the shyster's chance. Like vulture swooping down upon the decaying car cass of a dead horse, they pounce upon their victims. There is a neatly dressed young man in tho corner, who has shrunk back from sight. He looks as if he ' was up" for the first time, also as if his "spree" h vl not wholly depleted h:s "cash on hmd." "My dear friend," sympathetically, half mournfully, pipes the king shy ster, "I am grieved to oh-ierve you in this direful plizht. Think ot your lov ing mother at home, your sisters, your grey-haired father, and perhaps you are a trusted lover of some pure, con fiding maiden whose heart would break to learn of this. I am interested in you. l can not ten wny, inu surety something can te uone to rescue you from being disgtaced tor lite your hitherto fair name ruined forever. Just think! Discharged by your em ployer, turned adrift into the world with a stigma of having beeu convicted of drunkenness in a police court. Gaze upon ihe dark negative of such a fu ture and then decide whether or not you wa.it the picture struck. But there is one hope. (Whispering.) How much money hava you? 'Fourteen do'loars and eveniy-five ents.' Good. If you want to sve yourself engage me to defend you, give me ih- money, your name, piead not guilty when you are arraigned, and I w.ll clear you of the charge. You will walk out of this room with your reputai.on spot hss. Your friends wdl-th.nk a giave injustice ha been perpetrated aud you are saved." Tho young man hss been thinking. His senses have lceii stimulated. His face brightens up, and in a cracked, parched voice he faintly says, "Thank you. I was thinking ihat my every f r end had deserted uie, but now, when I am tottering on the brink of despir, a friend indeed comes to me in my need. If you only will help me out of th-: I shall be your everlasting b-t tor. Take this um. Use it as your discre tion d elates." Over goes the I14.7.V. The next in stant the bailiff sings out, "Wid.e S.rn pleton." The youth stsrgers to bis Ifet, places hi hand to his head, stanJs sbll until the whirling sensation has left h m, and then places himself in front of tho ttr of the court. "Ycu are charged on comprint of Capt.n Johnson w;ih navirg te?n jr u xicabNi nd disorJer'.y upon the streets of the city of ;rd RruJ, acamt the p ace aol the digndy of ti e rvor!e ot the tt of Mich gi." re ts ihe cie-k. "Djoa plead gu.lty or not guilty." Now itie tny.tr geta Jn h a work. "If therourt p1at I appear ff V- repOTv1'nt. We plead not gn.ity an I lema-vi ft tr al." It ta lrmaien! to the Jn Jg C ilPfit w.li in the efid b forced to par lhC"'.s. The ofrer rrai ng th r r t js-orn ami t:',! i-nr "y.

II looks around tor th shyster and bis f 14.75, but both bav disap peared. I Lirty days ia th county joii r the fctutesce imposed. Each of th ciiqu olU hi victim and tLey ar ready for th fray. Per sons arre&ied for criiu of a serious nature, mdtiuut weans to pay for their defro are their choicest prey. They obtain th privilege of defending then in the police court and exa ta protn.se that if they aro bound over lor trial that they will recommend them as their attorney. Exam.nation is then waived and th v.cum, under instiuc tions from the ahysier, make sflidavit that be l a pauper and derires an at torney appointed to defend bim. Of course ihe snvster is recommended. This is presented to the next higher court, and the appoiutmcnt ma Jr. Tne people go down in tneir pocket and pay the snyster 5 for defending in the police court and f 10 in the ciicuii court, when there never was a ghost of a show for the man to be discharged. Alter court adjourns the shyster may be seen on the street Curuei s or in some saloon tilking about scrubby johtic and his great achievements. Another c!s of shysters woik ou a different scale. They consider them selves just a little better and never take a client unlets they are pretty suie that he is capable of paying for ser vices rendered. If an accident occurs and a man is killed the bereaved rela tive are sol.cited and urged to begin suit. If there is a wil wbo does not get along well with her husband she is made lo believe that she should have a divorce, and the husband is treated likewise. They are always prospective candidates for every public office, but never reach the convention. Their headquarters aro dingy, papers are strewn 111 disorder about the tables, and the absence of a pretty, obhgiug typewriter makes toe place all the more lonely. Yet, the lawyer like the quack koctor aud the bogus preacher thrives upon the sheep whom be and they lead up to slaughter. o WEST MICHIGAN TRACK- That Is Where tho Juno Kacoa Will bo lield. .

Almost every merchant ia town is giad that the cloud bav rolled by, and that people come into th stores shiver ing with th cold, and with blue hands and red noses. Cold weather in No vember means a review of trade. Con tinued cold weather means good times all around except, perhaps, for the poor, wnom"w nave always with us. Grand Rapids merchants are generally confident that bus.ness is going to ! unusually brisk this year. Prices are lower in many Lnes than ever before, and there is a decided aWnce of ar.y "panic" f ears that were so general a year ago. Some of the leading mer chants, in answer to queions as to tha present tone of trade, and the outlook for the winter, expressed themselves ai follows: Henry Spring "Our trade ever sine t! e first of September ha been excep tionally cood; it never was better. And this statement of traJe i not confined to Grand Rapids, but is true of all the northwest. The whole country is ia a tetter condition than any t:me before in ten years, and every branch of trt) 'srffeeted by this good condition. ,Tha prosperity of the f&rmf r is the very bans of trade." Mr. Janiieson. of the Bottoa Store. "Trade is very brk. It started iu un usually well in September, but was put b.-u k a" little by the warm spell we had. Then it revived, and was excellent un til the wet weather of the fiist of the week. It is much better this year than any year since we have been here. The good condition of the country has bad much to do w.th it, but I think our spring trade will re ceive more benetlt from the farmers than we are now receiving." N. Friedman, of N. A M. Friedman: "Our business is growing every day, and considering tn wet weather we have had lately it is very good. The crops of last season were so good thst every one anticipated a wonderful in crease in trade. For ome reason, how ever, it has fallen far short of expecta tions; it i not nearly so go l as it ought to te if we judge by the condi tion of the country. Thus far our trade has teen mostly city trade; farm crs always put it o:T so long as they can." A.B. Wykes. of Wykes meat market; "This cold weather helps our trad, be cause more meat is eaten in cold weather than in warm. . No, w t weather doesn't have much eitect on us. Compared w-th other year the bulk of our ret a 1 bujim s is as large as an time in ten years." Ira C. Hatch, grocer, of Monroe street, "Trade is fair. Even with tho rainy days we hare had this month, our average has hern letter tlan it was a vear ago. Our bus ncv is largely affected bv bad weather, in that people can't get down town to buy groceries, but get enough to last them from day to day at the little grocery stores near their homes. If we onlv hace nice cold weather, th prospects for a good trade are excellent." Mr. Lvon, of Faton, I ron A Co., lKVk sellers "Pusinese wilti us is much Utter than it wss Isst year, which was a very quiet vear. We are legir.r.irig to feel the effect of the ChiUtmss trade already, especially in the wholesale de partment. Our business is not aflectcd bv th weather to the degree that som other branches of trade are." Wilder I). Steven of Foster. Stevens A Co., hardware: "Trade is fully up P the usual standerd of this time of the year. The warm weather of the rarly part of the sesson retarded c wnm. rhat, but we hardly know the condi tion of the weather from day today, we are 1 little effected by iL We often find that the causes that make the w holesale trade fall off will pro-lure a gain in the retail department. Piices in our business were never lower.' Porn, the batter "We bve bad a very handsome business ever eir.ee th season opened, along in OJtotfr. If we bave cont nuM cold weather, w will have eontinu-d good lysines. I attribute- the ;nreae in trade t" the confidence among people of ihtrrsi Tt sources throughout the country this year." Altred Rsxter.of Gardner A Psxter "Lusinest is very satisfactory jut now. Wheiln r it is due to our own rflorta or to tistnrat causes. I can't My, bet it is certainly away ahead c f pretVms yrr. We need cold weather to make rir trade partcular'y brisk, snd th weather awhi; back was a little too warm." J. W. Rosenthal, of the Tower cloth ing houw "Since we c merrM from l-e clouds of the fo part of the wrk burin, ss hat teen unrausliy The natural growth of our trade j t, rr at sltory. Weather sfl'ert us Terr mstensl'y, bnt we wern't rHar.lr-d W the warm fall becsnse pmhrd -tt all the more. I believe the g ed status of trade depends more on c-ur owm effort than on nstnral jeon-r." m - " FORCEPS FOR HAST INDIA. ! Two fftotlof Thmt rvil rtto raaaa t T(Mlir Raa IH4 Wot.
