In the line of raising additional rev
enue, the city council should consider
the large number of bicycles owned and
nsed in the city. The man who owns a
25 plug has to pay taxes on it; why
should not the $125 bicycle be taxed?
Besides the wheel is more of a luxurv
than a necessity. The foregoing is from
the Schuyler Herald. If the bicycle is
taxed, that will be an expense that most
of the owners have not calculated upon.
We hear of a Madison county man
who borrowed a pair of mules of a
neighbor, placed one of his boys on one
of them, had another hold the plow
handles, while he, with a club, beat first
one mule and then the other, from nine
o'clock in the forenoon until four o'clock
in the afternoon, not ceasing for dinner,
and at the end of that time the poor
animals were exhausted and shortly
died. What ought to be the punishment
for such a fiendish deed?
Dr. Wilson applied to his patient,
Mr. Ives, the cleansing method of wash
ing the stomach with warm water and
discharging it with a pump by way of
the mouth. Lodged in the folds of the
stomach had been since October 1st last,
hundreds of grape, tomato and apple
seeds, and some fish and potatoes were
held in the stomach eight days. The
day before his death, after one of these
cleansings, the patient threw up, for the
first time, some unusual looking sub
stance that under the microscope, proved
to be cancerous matter.

Word was received last Friday after
noon that little Otto Borcher, aged two
years, had accidentally hung himself.
He had been playing around home all
afternoon and about 4 o'clock his mother
missed him, and it was at first thought
that he toddled off to a neighbor's, but
as he could not be found there a search
of the place was made and he was found
hanging under a self-binder, dead. It is
thought that he crawled under the
machine to. play with some pups and in
going out a piece of iron that is intended
to prevent straw from wrapping around
the axle caught under his clothing at the
back of his neck and he was unable to
free himself and slowly strangled to
death. The bereaved parents have the
sympathy ot their many friends. Scrib-ntr&ewa.

Sorrow sits brooding in our midst.
The alarm which no one cares to hear
and no one dares to challenge, has come
to the door of our asylum. The angel
of death received the fatal mandate, and
on Saturday evening, April 14, 1894, just
as the shadows lengthened and twilight
deepened, Sir Knight Charles B. Still
man bade us good night here to say good
"The palseleiM hand lies quiet oa his breaat,
Theawonl ia theathed, the knight id at his rent."
The record of his life is one of thor
ough integrity and tried manhood. He
was a tower of strength to the Masons
of Columbus, in blue lodge, chapter,
council and commandery. Upon his
shoulders rested the prelate's mantle of
our order when he received tho final
summons. He believed in and loved
masonry; he modeled his daily life upon
its principles and precepts, to which he
adhered in the strong belief that he
would thereby reach the holy city of the
Divine Master. A good man has fallen,
Brother, companion, frater, hail and
To the family of our deceased frater
we extend, all that we can do, our deep
sympathy in their great loss, with the

sword hilts be draped in emblems of
mourning for the period of sixty days.

At the meeting Tuesday evening last
all were present except Councilmeu
Oehlrich and Wells.
The petition of Messrs. B. B. Kummer
and Gustavo Schroeder for the privilege
of erecting poles for electric light and
power purposes, using the latest improv
ed machinery, was referred to the com
mittee on streets and grades.
The mayor then announced the stand
ing committees, as follows, the first
named being the chairman:
Finance, Gray, Murdock, Galley.
Streets and grades, Welch, Murdock,
Claims, Murdock, Oehlrich, Wells.
Police, Wells, Welch, Murdock.
Printing, Oehlrich, Galley, Wells.
Fire, Welch, Galley, Oehlrich.
The report of the committee to whom
was referred the territory to be sprink
led the coming year, was adopted, aa fol
lows: 11th street from K street to cen
ter of block 119; 12th from N to center
of block 86; 13th from K to center of
block 56; L from 13th to 10th; H from
11th to alley in block 117; N from 14th
to 10th; Olive from 14th to 10th; Ne
braska Avenne from 14th to 12; 14th
from Olive to Nebraska Avenue.
On motion of Gray the preparation ot
a list of persons liable to poll tax was
referred to the committee on streets and
grades with power to act.
The communication from the fire de
partment was referred to the committee
on fire. On this subject Galley express
ed himself very decidedly in favor of
providing the firemen with better quar
ters and paying much more attention to
their needs and then requiring more of
them in return. Certain men are on the
roll of firemen for the purpose of being
exempt from jury duty and poll tax, and
scarcely ever even attend tho meetings
of the department. Then, too, they
might get out to practice a little occa
sionally, using the hydrants near the
dead ends of the mains, which they have
the right to open, for throwing water.
The mayor then announced his ap
pointments as follows: City Attorney,
William O'Brien; Water Commissioner,
C. H. Davis; Chief of Police, Charles
Brandt; Policeman, Julius C. Phillips;
Overseer of Streets, Robert McCray;
Members Board of Health, Galley and
There having been objection made to
the appointment of Brandt as chief of
police, Mayor Phillips said that in ap
pointing him ho had done so after mature
deliberation. It was his understanding
that the liquor license (to which refer
ence had been made), was not to Charles
Brandt. He had some experience as to
Mr. Brandt's service when he held this
office before and ho made an efficient
officer, and knowing this he felt justified
in making the appointment.
For quite a little while nothiug was
said. The silence was becoming op
pressive, when the mayor asked: "Does
the council wish to take any action on
Galley moved that the nominations be
all ratified except that of the chief of
police and that action on same be de
ferred to the next meeting of the council.
Pending this motion every councilman
present expressed his views. Galley say
ing that it was his understanding that
Charles Brandt was a partner of the firm
that had not paid their occupation tax
Welch didn't believe ho would be sat
isfactory. Murdock didn't doubt that the mayor
was sincere, but he thought this ap
pointment would be bad for him in the
end as well as for some others.
Gray thonght that the duties of a
policeman in good part came in restrain
ing the excesses about saloons, and that
policemen should be entirely independ
ent of that influence, and while Mr.
Brandt may cot be under that influence,
it certainly didn't look so. The police
man himself should be temperate, not
one especially opposed to the saloon
business, as conducted according to law,
but one who would perform his duty.
It wasn't, to his mind, a good selection.
Mayor Phillips said that because Mr.
.Brandt had been engaged in the saloon
business, it does not necessarily follow
that he would not make a good peace
officer. The fact that the council could
at any time call him to account ought
to be considered. It is assuming con
siderable to say that because a man has
been engaged in the business, he must
bow down to it. He assured the
council that no one desires to see
the peace and dignity of the city prop
erly maintained more than he did. He
did not wish to urge this appointment
further at this time.
The motion carried unanimously.
