H was precisely fifteen minutes before eight o'clock last evening when Dalboy's band of eighteen pieces struck up the open ing overture In the south court room of the county court house at the Inauguration of Mayor Macrao. The spacious room was lilted with a gathering * of representative citizens , and the spnco inside the bar railing was filled with ladles. 1'ollcomcn in full uniform and whlto gloves did duty ns ushers , ana others wcro stationed at tno entrances , on the main staircase and In the corridors. Every light In the largo building , both gas nnd electric , was ablaze , and the scene was a very attractive ono. The bounties of the court room were doubly nuparcnt under tha brilliant Illumina tion , and largo bouquets of frAgrnnt flowers graced the judge's bench. Arranged In V ahnpo In front of the desk of the presiding ofllcar were six tables for the nldcrmcir , and between the opan ends was the desk of the clerk. At , 8:15 : the mayor and council , headed by Chief of Pollcj Lucas und City Marshal Guonolln , ( lied iu and took their scats. In response to tbo call for the reports of committees , Mayor Hohror stated that the commission of Judge-Elect McGee , as judge or the superior court , had arrived from the governor of Jow.i , and the city marshal was directed to escort tno newly elected ofiiolal to the room , after which the oath of ollico was administered by City Clerk D. A. Parrell. Tbo mayor thru read bis farewell mes sage to the council. Mayor Kohror's address was quite lengthy und exhaustive. It embraced important facts und figures , many of which have already been made public by the board of. trade , and other reports' . The nddnm will firovo a valuable historical and statistical document to bo lilod away and used for reference rather than to bo tukon up as Interesting or sensational reading. On tlio matter of city finances Mayor Hohror suggested : . Every now nnd then n portion ot our citU zcns cla'.in that taxes are too high und should bo reduced , and at the same tlmo keep peti tioning the city council for a larger flro de partment , moro engine houses , which means more man and more flro apparatus , for moro nolicomon , for cleaner streets , for moro electric , gas or gasoline light , for moro bridges , water hydrants , etc. , nnd nt the name time If n special election was called the next day authorizing an additional levy for specific purposes it would o-irry by u largo majority. In this connection I dcsiro to state that In my opinion the city council and the school directors should give the public a longer notice than is required by law to dis cuss tlio merits of all questions that nro to bo voted on authorizing the levy of additional tax. tax.Under our present system of valuation the statr , count } and sohool district tnako a levy largo cnouirli to produce the revenue they require , while the crty council can only levy the 10 mills authorized by law , which pro duced nn income for thoyoarlbSS amounting lo W3.M110 Receipts from license anil lines . 7.7U3 75 Total income for city pursues. 951,313 13 Cost of service demanded oy the people 92,17400 Exccbs ot service over Income. . . . 40S5'J 51 The 10 mill levy for year ISii'J pro duced 47,377 20 Receipts troni licenses nnd lines. .

Under the custom of assessed valuation and the limit of 10 mills for all city pur poses , including salaries of city ofllciiUs , police , lire nnd engineer's departments , streets und alloys , city property , tire appa ratus , etc. , the mayor and city council for years hnvo been trying to solve the problem of giving our citUons , In compl < ana3 to their apparently just demands , f2 worth of ser vice for every $1 of Income placed at their disposal. I can not refrain from again reminding you that our present administration was obllccd to pilot through two of the most prosperous years in the history of the city with its corresponding Increased demands from the heretofore unKnown portions of thn city , with the limited income derived from nn assessed valuation of $4,013,510 made January 1 , 18S7. The now administra tion is cntitlod to our congratulations on ac count of Its starting out as heir to the largest increase lu assessed valuation ever falling to nnv previous city council. The assessed valuation from which they will derlvo their 10 mill levy is gO.138.2US mndo January 1 , 1SS9. This will increase tholr revenue about 915,000 , enough to take care of the lira de partment. Alderman Everett moved that the report bo referred to the Ilimuco committee with reference to having it published , as had been the CIHO with other reports. On motion of Alderman Lncy the council adjourned sine die. After a short recess the members of the now council , Messrs. Woods , Wind , Lacy , Mlkcscll , Smith , Knopher , Everett und Cas- i nr. tnnlr t.liplr The roll was called and the reading of the minutes dispensed with. The oond of Mnyor-oloct Mncrao In the sum of M.OOO , with J. L. btownrt and John Heresbelm us sureties , was road und ap proved. ' CAldcrmcn Everett nnd Lacy were ap pointed u committee to notify the mayor- elect of the approval of his bond and to re quest him to present himself to bo sworn into ofllco. City Clerk Furroll administered the oath , nnd the now mayor took his place on the rostrum. The retiring mayor presented him with the gnvol , and the newly inaugurated mayor road his first message to the council. Ho started out by stating that taxes were too high. Ho said : "Men capable of judging , and whoso opin ion In such matters Is worth having , toll mo tnoy nro too high. It will bo obsorvud that I do not arrogate to myself any Intlinato knowledge of the situation , nor can I do so until 1 have made a study of our taxes and all other matters connected with our inuni- clpal govornmont. It will devolve then upon mo , upon you , my follows In the council , to attempt to reduce the nxpondturos , to care fully guard and watch for tankages , and In this way make ends meet. Wo must see that our expenses are light , and that they must not exceed our Income. The resolu tions adopted at the recent annual mooting of citizens must bo the guiding star of our action in financial mnttura. 1'1'heso resolutions tions were then read. ] " 'I guess you'havo thn hardest and wick- edo t city in America,1 was the remark which was mndo to mo the other day on the tram. These of us who llvo and have al ways lived hero can hardly roallzo the Im pression which strangers receive when they visit us. Wo nro so much taken up with our own business , our minds und time so preoccupied - occupied , that wo do not , , see the enormity of immorality nnd looseness which Infests us , or perhaps wo regard the condition as m- pvituhlo In u largo anil crowing city. Ihoro Is no doubt , ho\vovor , thnt our character - actor Is a bad ono , the name of our fair city despoiled nnd a byword. It Is unnecessary to particularize our shortcoming * in this ro- spocti sufficient , to say that it mutt Do your duty anil mlno to endeavor to place our beloved - loved city iu the fore front of Iowa cities as far as regards morality and firm government to regulate and place under careful control what must bo endured , and effectually stump out the uuondurablo. With ibis end la viuw It will bo necessary to plaoo tha police eys- tcm under moro stringent dUclpllnotban has heretofore obtained , requiring the members of tae force to conform itrlctly to the rules nnd regulations sot before them ; Ig nore party nnd party affiliations nnd obey to the letter the orders of their superiors. The discipline must bo absolute and military In character , nnd the penalty fornon-ncqUl- csconco prompt dismissal. " 1 conclusion , I would remind you of the Important nnd responsible positions whloli you alt occupy : of the necessity for careful nnd methodical study of yourvnrloui duties ; of the reward which awaits you In the knowlcdgo that you bavo dona your duty. I would also remind you that while tlio posi tions that wo have all assumed are probably thankless ones , whllo wo strlvo to do the greatest good to tlio greatest number , thai there will always bo n largo minority whom wo cannot plouoo. So that , after all , wo must simply do our duty. " The mossazo was listened to with the closest attention , and was loudly applauded , It was referred to the committee of tbo whole , nftor which a recess was declared. For fifteen minutes the hand of tha new mayor was warmly shaken , when tbo coun cil was again called to ordor. A motion to adjourn was carried , and the newly organized body will moot again at 2 o'clock this afternoon. C.

A great many people were found yester day who announced their Intention of attend ing tbo inauguration of tbo newly elected mayor at the court house last evening , but there were also others who woro. not thnt way Inclined. Of the latter class , some were democrats nnd some were republicans , but none of them were admirers of Mayor Hohror. They denounced his farewell cxnt- bitioti ns a pleco of rank foolishness , and vowed that they would show their disap probation by staying away. Alderman Weaver , Judge Aylosworth ana several other rotirine city ofllclals were included in the list , whllo Judge James and other sue- csssful candidates seconded the idea. Said Judu'Q Aylesworth : "You can't expect n man to danca at his own funeral , can youf I can't see why Rohrer is celebrating his retirement with such a blare of trumpets , and inviting all of us follows d wn there , when everybody knows that lib administration was tlio only thing that caused the defeat of the demo cratic ticket hero this sprinc. Ho wants us nil to go down thorn and glory over our de feat. I am not at all sere beeauso I was de feated , for I urn roallv batter off out of the oflleo than I was In It. There has been a general feeling that the past administra tion has boon corrupt and venal , nnd In many respects I bollovo that there is reason for this fooling. I anticipated a change , and was not disap pointed when ID camo. I ballevo the new council Is ono of the best the city has ever had , and I think that the next administra tion will bo u satisfactory ono. I don't up- provo of the hurrah that Hohror Is getting up , and it looks very wouk to mo. " Said Alderman Weaver : ' 'H Is all non- seiiso to do the thine this way , und I won't go. Hohror probably wants to gnt auout 1,000 copies of the message printed , and I don't propose to vote for It.

The statement that the republican mom- bo rs of the city council bavo fixed up u slate of appointive ollloarn. Is denied by the now aldermen. They admit that the tnnttor has been talked over , but they say that no defi nite-conclusion has yet boon reached. Said Alderman Everett yesterdays "It looks now very much os If the llttlo already done in this direction would bo smashed to places when the council moots in executive sei- ilon. " U leouiR that there 1s great diftlculty In agreeing on a satisfactory chief of the flro department. The aldormeu thought taoy bad picked out the right man.butlncro la o mud opposition nt the ( Jjfijd suggestion thnt they nro again casting about in search of proper material. The demand scorn * to bo thnt tin now chief shall btf .thorough Qiomnn nnd ono who will coinfMnil tno respect of the en tire department. The two men who rccclVo the strongest support , are James Bradtay. the present electrician , and Norrls B. Wicks , who Is stationed at No. 3 IIQSO house. Both nro thoroughly capable firemen , and the plan now suggested Is tb'laalto ' Itradloy chlof nnd Wicks assistant chief. In thiscaso a capable head to the department would bo constantly on duty. It Is urgo&that the present salary Is not enough , and u Bradley Is now receiv ing 990 per month , It Is recommended that ho ho paid at least9100or $ l i per month. This would reduce the pay roll of the department from 910 to 910 per month , and nt tno snmo tlmo greatly Increase Its cniclcncy. The Idea that It Is necessary that the chief shall bo selected ontsido the department is by no moans general among there who dcsiro to sea this branch raised to the highest possible standard of cniclcncy : ARTESIAN WATEK POWER. Great rosiluluttcH In It for the Two DaicolnB. \Vritlnp on the subject of artesian water power in the Uakotas a contrib utor iu the True Republican , published at Wossinton Springs , S. 1) . , says : There is power sutllciont that can bo obtained at no very great cost * that can and will bo at no distant day utilized to run all the manufactories that are or will bo needed in South Dakota , and to prind every grain of Dakota hard wheat. Instead of sp.nding our wheat lo Duluth , Minneapolis or Chicago , wo can make the flour at homo and inako that as our surplus ; and what will bo the result. ? Our last ' "short" crop of wheat is estimated by the latest reports from tlio agricultural dooartmont at about 41,000.000 bushels ; by our own statistics at about 44,000.000 , the value of which is $24,000,000' 823,000,000. Now at a rough estimate it costs from 40 to GO cents a bushel toscndour wheat to Minneapolis and have it converted into Hour. Two-thirds of this forty odd million bushels may bo sold as surplus and there is no doubt that with our present "short crop" fully 20,000,000 bushels have been sent to market so that if we had our own flouring mills at homo , wo would have been moro than $12,000,000 better oil this year , as all the freight on the raw material , the outrageous dockage and profits of the middlemen the ele vators would bo saved , and the cost of the manufacture retailed at homo. This may hardly scorn possible to some who live on a "dry quarter , " and have their well at a door in n barrel ; but it is very likely that in the next five .years there will bo many ( louring mills run in South Dakota by this sub- t'jrranoan power. At the same time the water can again bo used for irriga tion , and such crops as have never been dreamed of greet your o.vcs on every side. It booms mi if the Giver Of All Good has especially prepared this re markable healthy countrv for a won derful future. VVo have the soil , and the water just within our reach ; and it can bo utilized just when we want it. Everyone can imagine what a verita ble Garden of Edbii our state will bo with its lovely gitrdons , its monstrous crops , its beautiful groves , and dry roads. Congress should appropriate as much for ono year as is , given to the Sioux Indians and a wonderful result would follow. South Dakota is destined to bo the most desirable s ate in the union. No other state possesses clearer skies or moro line days. § ho is provorblal for health , both fpq , man and beast , and everybody knows there nro no brighter , smarter , handsomer or jinoro rugged babies in the world than are raised right hero in our own DaUota. With the best babies , with plenty of flouring mills and other industries , water for irrigation , the best climate and tlio largest tin mines Known , Da kota leads the world. It has been reported that a project has boon proposed to build a flouring mill at Alpana. There is no doubt but a well can bo put down there which will furnish all the power needed at less ex pense than a steam engine , and once in operation there would bo very little ex pense for power , while the surplus water could bo utilized for town and irriga tion purposes.

The life led by a comfortable English or American farmer would represent wicked waste and shameful indulgence to a much richer French peasantwrites Frederic Harrison in the March Forum. I myself know a laborer on wages of loss than twenty shillings a week , who by thrift lias bought ton acres of the magnificent garden land between Fontainobleau und the Seine , worth many thousand pounds , onwhich grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables , and the famous dosart grapes ; yet whojvith all his wealth and abundance , de'nios himself and his two children meat on Sundays , and oven a drink of tlio witm which" ho grows nnd makes for the market. I know a peasant family in Normandy , worth in houses , gardens and farms at least 500,000 francs , who will llvo on the orts cast out as refuse by their own lodgers , while the wife and mother hires herself out as a scul lion for two francs a day. The pontir- iousness of the French peasant is to English eyes a thing savage , bestial and maniacal. The French peasant has great vir tues : but ho has the defects of his vir tues , and his homo life is far from idyllic. IIo is laborous , shrewd , endur ing , frugal , solf-roliant , sober , honest , and capable of intense nolf-coiitrol for a distant reward ; but that reward is prop erty in land , lni > ursultof which ho may become as pitilb'sias a bloodhound. IIo is not chaste ( indued ho is often lecher ous ) , but ho relentlessly keeps down the population , and can hardly bring him self to roar two.cuildrou. To give these two children n good heritage , ho will inflict great hardships on them and on all othnrs whom * ho controls. Ho has an intonuo pas ioa for his own immedi ate locality ; but iio loves his own com mune , and still moro his own terre , bet tor than ho lovijs Franco. IIo is intel ligent ; but ho if ) not nearly so well edu cated a's the Swiss , or the German , or the Hollander , illo is able to boar suf fering without'iYmurmur ' ; but ho has none of that"J'lpporturbablo , courage which Englishmen ami Americans show In n thousand now situations. IIo is shrewd and far seeing , nnd a tough hand in a bargain ; but ho him none of the inventive audacity of the American citizen. Ho is self-reliant , but . too cautious to trust himself in n now Held. IIo is independent , but without the proud spirit of the Spanish peasant.

THE JUDICIARY AMENDMENTS. An Apparent Dolcot in tlio llonolu * lion Tlio Original Sooly Crltlolscil IiitiooUi In Urlof. 1'olltlual Mnttero. LINCOUT , Nob. , March " 17. fSpectal to Tun Hni : . ] Tno capital city U n political center towards which politicians naturally Kravltato and In which everything of a polit ical nature receives the closest scrutiny. A grcnt iniiny possibilities nro unearthed hero , nnd the latest concerns the proposed consti tutional amendments for changing the Judic iary. Ono nmcDdmcnt provides for Increas ing the number of the nuprcmo court judges from three to five. The other proposes to raise their salaries to $11,500 nnd to increase the salaries of the district court Judges to f3,000. THcJO propositions were embodied in a joint resolution , nnd Interested politi cians nrc somewhat stirred ovoran apparent dofcct In the resolution. It provides for nn nfllrnmtivo vote on both proposition ! ) , but tnuUu.t no such provision for the negative. In considering the proposed high license nnd prohibition amendments this point was discussed , and particular palna wuro taken to provide forms foriilllrm- ntlvo and for negative votes on both proposi tions. A search of the records In the ofllco of the secretary of'ituto has revealed the strnn 'o fact that the original resolutions are not on llle , and It it presumed they are still In the possession of Walt Mi Seoley , secretary of the sonato. It Is noa'rly n year since the IOR- islaturo adjourned nnd Mr. Sceloy's action has given rise to considerable speculation , not all of It complimentary. There is on tile In ( ho ofllco of the secre tary of state a bound sot of the bills nnd resolutions as Introduced In the senate. Among these nro tha original printed reso lutions embodying the proposed changes In the judiciary , and both of them provide n form for negative ns well us for ulllrmatlvo votes. These resolutions wcro introduced by tno judiciary committee nnd It Is assorted they were submitted to "members of the suureuio court before balng brought bofo.ro the senate. The resolutions were amended In the house and the provisions for negative vote dropped out. When asked for an opinion on the validity of the submission , Chief Justice Cobb plodded n lacK of thought upon the matter and evaded committing him self. In speaking of the license and the pro hibition amendments , however , the judgn said the Impression was general among ttio members of the legislature that under our constitution the absence of form for nega tive votes would not , Invalidate the resolu tions. To carry they must have ii majority of all votes cast at the election , and all bal lots that do not have an expression on the amendments are equivalent to votes ag-Unst them. Some politicians believe that those resolutions were manipulated to influence the supreme court in Its consideration of the double-barreled license-prohibition amend ment. OVPITOI. IXTELI.iaCXCC.

The Enormous Ainotm'.H that the DnHoni of OldJDoaan Iliitos. A company lately sot out from Sydney to Now Zealand to recover sun ken'trcas- urcs from some old reck on the west coast ot the Middle island , but so far no returns have boon published , the oper- itions probably not being completesays the Sydney Herald. The subject of sunken treasure reminds one of the lioaps of gold carried in the galleons ana like packets years ago. In 1709 a shlp-of-war from Hlo to Lisbon hart on Doard 0,000,000 of crusades in diamonds and about 100.000 "crowns tournoia" in piastres , making in the whole tiO,030OOI ) ivrus tournois. So much so for a single ship. In 1774 two Spanish ships from Vera Cruz an'd the Havana arrived with J2.000.000 crowns , besides merchandise valued at 27,000,000 crowns. Such ex amples could bo multiplied. Of the cargo of an English Inuiamnn in 1771 , ono item alone , a diamond in rough , was valued at . 103,000 , "going to bo manufactured in England on ac count of ono of the Asiatic nabobs , " and on the private freight of this vessel the po'.icios of insurance wore opened at Lloyd's at a high premium , so Costly were her contents nnd so doubt- ! ul her safe arrival. As a costly ship- wrack La Lutino deserves notice. She was ol thirty-two guns , commanded by Captain Skynner. and went iistioro on the bank of the Fly island passage on the night of Outobor 0 , 1701) ) . At first she was reputed to have 000,000 in specie on board. This was afterward contradicted by a statement that the whole amounted to 140,000. In moro modern times the costliness of ship wreck is to bo found in the destruction of tlio fabrlo and her cargo rather than in the treasure on board. Whatever - ever may have bean the worth of a , 'alcon as a ship , there need bo no jcruplo In concluding that when brand- now her value would bo hut that of a : oy in comparison with such ocean mail jo'ats ai now convoy specie and valu- ihlos. The sinking of an Atlantic , In- Han or Austraillan liner oven with a clean hold would represent an im- mcnso treasure if told in dollars , ducats or piasters , and when Is added the cargo along with the passengers' luggage - gage , which would include a quantity of jewelry representing many thousands of pouiulH , B'jmo astonishing figures would bo the result. The Itoyal Charter is the most nota- jlo modern instance of the wreck of n 'tveuuuro" ship. She loft Australia with JC350OC01n her.
