The Mahara minstrel troupe performed
to a rather light audience at the Audi ;
torinm last evening but gave a fairly
good minstrel show. Their bass and

The sale 'of state property at the Nor
folk hospital for the insane yesterday
afternoon , conducted by Governor
Savage's representatives , was ' not a
financial success , the property being
disposed of at about one-fourth its actual
value. The proceedings resulted in
squandering about 70 per cent of the
value of the property sold , that the
governor's idea of economy might be
gratified. If the governor's other econ
omic moves show as gratifying results
as the removal of the Norfolk hospital
from Norfolk the state is not likely to

Jonathan Perrian of Chicago , 111. , was
a city visitor today. Mr. Perrian was
manager of the first beet sugar factory
that at Ohatsworth , 111. during the
last three years of its existence and
takes an especial interest in the beet
sugar industry of today. The Chats-
worth factory was built in 1803 nnd by
the old process then in use could secure
but 76 per cent of the juice of the beet
and 8) Per cent of the sugar content.
They used what he describes a "slam"
press , bone filter , used the open coil for
reducing'jnico , and vacuum pans about
on the same principal as now. Owing
to these inadequate processes the factory
was a failure , not being able to extract
enough sugar to pay for the beets , let
alone enough to pay for the expenses of
running , the factory.

Third ward by 10 and the Fourth ward
by 14 free holders.
The city attorney was asked for at/
opinion as to the legal right of the
council to make such a contract as that
proposed by the Norfolk Electric Light
and Power company. Ho thought the
council could not legally ontcr into
such a contract without first making
an appropriation Rufllciont to fulfill
such contract , which could not be done
at the present time.
It was moved by Brummund and seconded
ended by Uhlo that the council proceed
to pass an ordinance calling a special
election to vote bonds as requested by ,
petitions from the several wards. On

the motion and Clements , Gow , Spell-

The mayor was authorized to appoint
a special committee of three who in
connection with the city attorney should
confer with the claimants and settle on
