This week, says the Monroe Look ing Glass, the artesian prospect drill passed through a stratum of about two and half feet of what appeared to be soft granite, though -there was considerable bright sparkling matter in it that was not pyrites of iron. On Monday they were in a very hard slate that readily mixed after being ground out, and hard ened, receiving a nice polish but easily dissolved in water. On Tuesday they only made a few feet. Eugene Bacon, (who engineers the work) says he ex pects to strike water when through this layer of slate, though there is just as uch probability of coal, and if coal is proportion to the slate in thickness it will be thick enough. The prospect the principal object of interest in the surrounding region as well as at home; we are all in hopes to strike water soon. The well is 480 feet deep. L. Gerrard reports that there is no gold or iron in the material taken from the artesian prospect, says that it may be silver or arsenic pyrites or some other mineral Parties here think it is probably plati num, but it will have to be teased. The well sinker aays the vein is about 54 1 feet thick. ceW the Pi i ilk nan ewerch. IWciM.

The appointment of Leopold Plath as aaniffapT chief by the fire department to succeed F. Hagel, who resigned, was confirmed by the council. Resolutions of the fire department were read calling the attention of the city council to sections 3293-6, providing for suitable fire escapes from high build ings, and as there are several hotels in the city coming under the meaning of the statute, some action by the council is desirable for the protection of the public, the safety of the firemen in case' of fire. The committee from the de partment consisted of Messrs. Kflian, Hagel and Miller, the chairman, Judge Kilian, afterward appearing and urging action by the council. The resolutions were referred to the committee on fire. A petition was read, signed by a large number of citizens asking for the open ing of Platte street, the removal of ob structions as .they are a damage to property interests' and contrary to for mer agreement. The petition was re ferred to the committee on streets and grades. 2. Fuller, police judge elect, made application for desk room as police judge in the council chamber for the ensuing term. Request granted. The certificate of election of R. X. Bossiter as city engineer was placed on file. The applications of Thos. McTeggart and also of C. B. Speice for the position of engineer at the waterworks were read and ordered placed on file. The bond of W. S. Gardner aa dray may, accompanied by the treasurer's re ceipt for $5, was accepted and license granted. . The $2,000 bond of A Dussell Son as plumbers, with Henry Ragatz and Hugh Hughes as sureties, was approved and license granted. The $250 bond of Harry B. Reed as herder, with W. R. Notestein and E. H. Jenkins as sureties, was approved and license granted. Same of Burt Moore and George Brodfuehrer as herders, and J. L. Stur geon, F. Brodfuehrer and John E. Moore as sureties. License was granted to Robert Hersch bruner as plumber, with J. E. Ernst and Louis Schwarz as sureties. The $500 bond of B. Fuller as police judge with J. G. Reeder, S. J. Ryan and Ed.

H.Wur demas, C. H. Sheldon. Jonas Welch and W. A McAllister as sureties was ap proved. Judge Kilian as chief of the fire de partment, and as a committeeman ap pointed by them, appeared before the council in regard to fire escapes, as elsewhere referred to, and also urged that it is absolutely necessary to have a fire alarm at the court house, as for the Abts fire there were many who did not he3r the alarm at all. and the bell at Hughes' lumber yard is too far away for the First ward. Also that the chief should have power to.appoint a special pqliceduringthe. continuance of a fire, and stationed near by to protect property, and to prevent interference with the duties of firemen. He referred to the fact that during January next a convention of the fire men of the state is to be held in this city and it is desirable that something be done, not only for the welfare of the firemen right along, but for the visitors, when they come. He said they had no suitable room in which to meet, the council chamber is too small for even an ordinary meeting of the department, and the room at the engine house is too dan gerous they didn't want to be killed before their time came. He had under stood that Charles Reinke's rooms re cently occupied by the Y. M. C. A. could be had for $12 a month. All the com panies have money ahead, enough to do a little with, but they thought they would ask the council to pay the rent of a suitable room and the department would endeavor to fit it with reading matter, etc.. at their own expense. These gatherings are of representatives from many towns and villages of the state: they come together for mutual improvement and for the benefit of the public, and certainly it becomes the city of Columbus and its fire department to provide for their entertainment. All the matters spoken of, together with the resolutions were referred to the committee on fire. The chief of police made no arrests during April, and the police judge said he had transacted no business. The street commissioner reported work done on Thirteenth, Washington avenue. Eleventh, North, Sixteenth, etc., 500 feet of lumber used; 41 days men and team, $1L25; 54 days men, S&25; 10 days commissioner $30. Referred to committee on streets and grades.

Rcssiter and Con. Hewitt, policemen. At the meeting Monday evening, the bond of Carl Schubert was referred to the committee on waterworks for inves tigation and report as to sufficiency. Mayor Speice thought the matter ought to be passed upon during the evening, if possible. The bond of Chris. From as street commissioner was approved, with G. A. Scott and S. J. Ryan as sureties. The report ot the committee on streets and grades recommending the accept ance of W. W. Whittaker's proposal for sprinkling certain streets during the coming year, for $775, was adopted. A. Heintz' bill for lights, $116.65 was ordered paid. Same for S. A. McCone'a bili of S1L25 for street work. The committee on streets and grades recommended the acceptance of A Luth's bid for extra sprinkling, being in their opinion the lowest and best, $1.75 a day of 10 hours. Adopted. The committee on waterworks to whom had been referred the applications for engineer at the city waterworks, repor ted that they had given the same due consideration and thought it for the beat interests of the city that John Bur- was signed by OftUey, Held sad Welch. Mayor Speice remarked that he didn't wish tokwcoasaSeced as a dictator, but saggssted that in the minds of many dtiaeas there was a cloud over this maa's character that oaght to be re moved. Newman moved s rail call on the adoption of the report. Carried. The roll was called, reeultisc. yes: Ffehob, Galley, Held, Newman, Welch, Whit moysr; nays: none. Bonds ot Con. Hewitt as policeman and A. Shock as chief were approved. It appeared that Carl Schubert is not a free-holder, and hence his appoint measas water commissioner is not in cossrmit to law. Astatement of the financial condition of Ae city, which had been placed with the Argus for printing by Treasurer Beraey, was presented, read and ordered filed, and then turned over to the Argus to print, without charge to the city. It was understood to be a statement not required by law. A Heintz explained his proposition to.furnish electric lights all night ser vice. School Board.

At the celebration of the 77th anni versary of Oddfellowship, at Leigh Monday of last week, the World has this to say: -The speaker, Judge Hudson, of Columbus, was then introduced. He said an apology was due for what he had to say because as he became ad vanced in years it was necessary for him to resort to manuscript. He then launched forth upon a fitting eulogy of the Odd Fellows order, touching slight ly upon its growth and development in America, distinguishing American from English Odd Fellowship, and said that he had been connected with the lodge for fifty-five years and was acquainted with both English and American socie ties. He had joined the order in the city of London when but eighteen years of age. The speaker talked a little over an hour, giving in clear and definite terms the primary objects of Odd Fel lowship, and was of the opinion that the order was doing what the church neglects to do in looking after the tem poral welfare of humanity. The dis course was enlivened with occasional humor." The kind old gentleman of The Joubsal is whining because the Tele gram has been scooping him on a few write-ups lately. Telegram. The Telegram has not bees scooping the kind old gentleman," it has been simply scooping"' news from the Tues day evening Jocbsal to dish up to Telegram readers the Thursday follow ing. Those who read both papers know the difference between the two kinds of "scoops." Straighten up, man, and be as fair as you know how. It will be the best way for yourself.

Sam Drinnin, who lives on the Blaser farm 2 miles northeast of the city. lost a chicken occasionally and could not account for them, but one morning last week about daylight he saw a gray wolf leaving a straw-stack which stood near the barn, and on Thursday morning his Tom turkey was gone. The fields being too wet work, Sam took his spade, (which is a bright-one) and followed in the direction the wolf had gone, and which led into a deep gulch in Fred. Stengers upland pasture where he found a large hole in the ground, with fresh tracks entering it. Sam was soon en gaged in making that wolf hole deci dedly larger and it was not long until Sam had disappeared below the surface, when ho! at this point a lively tussle took place, and with the assistance of his wife, he killed the mother wolf and took from the neat five young ones.

COLUMBUS. hs The TranmiLippi ExptHitioa. fever has there been anything sug gested that will bring as many people into Nebraska as the proposed Trans mississippi exposition to be held at Omaha in 1S3S. Since the government has recognized the undertaking and has. voted $200,000 for its building and ex hibit it has become an assured fact. In order to make the exposition a suc cess in every particular it will be neces sary to keep the people all over the country thoroughly posted on its possi bilities, its development and progress. Every citizen of Nebraska should make it his business to let his friends in all parts of the country understand that this enterprise is to be second only to. the great Chicago Columbian exposi tion of 1S93. The Omaha Bee proposes to devoteJ considerable space from now on to this great enterprise, knowing that a great deal of publicity will be necessary to bring the people here at the right time. It has been suggested that a rate be made for subscriptions to The Bee that will give everybody an opportunity to send one or more papers to friends in lr. other states. Acting on this suggestion the publishers of The Weekly Bee have decided to make a price of 25 cents for that paper, mailed to any address in the country from the present time up to January 1, 1597. This price hardly covers the cost of the white paper used in printing a twelve-page paper for this length of time, but the publishers feel that the great exposition must be prop erly advertised and are willing to do their share toward helping along an enterprise that is bound to be a great benefit to this state, as well as to the entire western country. Orders should be addressed to The Weekly Bee, Omaha, Neb. 2 Tto To Chicago and the Eat. Passengers going east for business, will naturally gravitate to unicago as tne great commercial center. Passengers re-visiting friends or relatives in the eastern states always desire to "take in" Chicago en route. All classes of passen gers will find that the -Short Line" of the Chicago, Milwaukee i: St. Paul Bail way, via Omaha and Council Bluffs, affords excellent facilities to reach their destinations in a manner that will be sure to give the utmost satisfaction. A reference to the time tables will in dicate the route to be chosen, and, by asking any principal agent west of the Missouri river for a ticket over the Chicago. Council Bluffs i: Omaha Short Line of the Chicago, Milwaukee fc St. Paul Eailway. you will be cheerfully furnished with the proper passport via Omaha and Chicago. Please note that all of the "Short Line" trains -arrive in Chicago in ample time to connect with the express trains of all the great through car lines to the principal eastern cities.
