DAMMING THE WATERS ,
The Citizens Righteously Indignant at
the SlacK City Government ,
Tlioy nro Tlrcrt of IleliiK Flooded by
the Crook.
Tlio rain of Sunday night caused an
other overflow of the creek , at the same
old place , on the head just nftor it crosses
Broadway. During the night the tvalor
awopt over the banks and aprcad so tlmt
many yards were covered nnd collars lill-
od. This has happened several
times this year , nnd those
living in that vicinity have
had their rationco tried to beyond the
point of onuuranco. Last spring Mayor
Vaughan promised that if the people
would only elect him ho would mnko the
improvement of Indian Creole the lirat
and chief duty to bo performed. How
well that promise hna been kept , ( ho
irmrslus and mud puddlea canbear _ wit
ness. The mayor Buys that it is not his
fault , but the council's lack of support of
his administration. Aid. James , who
BDoms to bo the only aklormanic represen
tative of the ward , the other nldorman
being . -.t largo most of the tune , says that
it ia not his fault. Ho has hnd n
aurvoy made of the crook , but the engi
neer never reported the aurvoy , and the
other alderman do not acorn to be inclin
ed to do anything for the Fourth ward.
The other uldorman toll the citi/.ons that
they should make their complaints to the
alderman of their own ward. Thus it ia
that while the citizens botncon Hoods are
drying out , they got no protection
against the next ouo , and no oiUlafuctiou
: or the old ones.
Yoatorday morning a delegation of the
indignant ones were hunting up the
ifliciuls , and making ouo last appeal for
lielp. The feeling was very bitter
nnd the throat was madp that if some
thing waa not dona within twenty-four
iourathoy would oraanizo and take oomo
action which would bring the city govern-
nont to a realization of what ita duty waa.
L'Jioy propoao among other thiiiga to not
only refuse to pay taxes , but to enjoin
the city from spending any more money
on sewerage on Broadway until aomo way
a provided for running the sewerage oil' .
They 'do not propose to lot all the drainage -
ago of the city bo poured down upon
.heir premises.
Yoatorduy morning another break was
made in the embankment on Union avo-
uio , along which the Union Pacific
runs ita dummy train. It
scorns that the Union Pacific ,
not content with having gobbled the avo-
uuo from the city , paying nothing for it ,
ots it servo aa a dam to keep water back.
Thia was broken through and the water
allowed to run off , and preventing the
trains from running. It ia understood
that the break waa not purely accidental ,
but as was the ciso a week ago it was
liclped along by indignant citizens.
BricknoU's ditch is still clogged up.
There are some bridges which stand so
tow aa to prove obstructions , and a dam
haa boon put in near Stewart's packing
houso. The citizens insist that the hiiad
of the crock must bo cleared at once ,
that the banks must bo raised nnd the
water given a chance to run off in aomo
other way than through their houses.
In other parta of the Fourth ward there
is hardly leas trouble on account of the
fact that aomo parta of the strcota and
some lots are filled up , while others are
atill aa of old. Many fills have been
partly washed away , and great puddlea of
water stand breeding malaria , cholera ,
and death. Those who have iillod find
their heavy expenditures to have availed
little , on account of the places still unfill
ed.
ed.Mr.
Mr. Couch , whoso residence is at the
corner of Eighth street and Sixth avenue ,
is ono of those. Hrt has spent over
$1,500 in filling up his lots and making
needed charges to conform with
the grade , but much of the dirt has been
washed into Sixth avenue , which the city
ins left unfilled , and his now mada
'round haa bcon so honey-combed that
Sunday night part of the collar founda-
, ion of his houao gave way , doing much
damage.
A few daya ago a few wagon loads of
dirt were hauled in at the eamo corner to
i.itcli up the incline loading from the
illod port of Sixth avenue to the unfilled
lart. Sunday night HO much moro was
iwept away that it will now take twenty
oiida to make it BO that a team can paea
hero.
Ono gentleman in taking hia wife homo
in a buggy Sunday night got stuck in the
mud right near Bayliaa Park , and actu-
illy had to wade out , and lenvo the
buggy standing there all night.
Such instances are common in tlmt
part of the city. The collars alony lower
Main atrcot are Hooded. Several lots
are allowed to remain unfilled hero , and
lots , too. owned by such notables aa
Judge Aylosworth and Pat Lacy , who are
abundantly able to fill them.

National Tribune.
The writer called the attention of Gen.
Sheridan , the other day , to a story that
s going the rounds of the newspapers ,
o the effect that when ho and S > , o. Lin
coln worn going to Siiidusky on their
iahing excursion last May they boarded
ho limited express on the Pennsylvania
ailroad ; that the conductor refused to
ocognizo their passes ; that they refused
o pay ; that ho threatened to put them
off , and that they finally paid and re-
) ortcd the matter to the president of the
nad , who wrote thorn an apology and ro
unded the monoy.
The general laughed and said it was a
'cry interesting atory , but waa not exact-
y true in aomo of the ccsential points.
"Wo did go to Sanduaky , " ho anid
'that much ia true and wo did have
lasses ; but wo d'dn't board the limited
express or any other train on the Ponn-
ylvania road , for that line does not go to
Sanduaky. Wo went by the way of the
3 , ltimoro & 0hio ; the conductor didn't
cfuso to recognize our passes , but ac
cepted thorn nnd treated ua with the
; reatcst courtesy. Ho didn't threaten to
mt usof.and I didn't pay him'any monoy.
! didn't write to the president of the
oad , r.nd didn't receive an apology from
iliu. Otherwise the story is truo. "
NO lll'NUOMME FOU HIM.
Getting back to army reminiscences , I
asked the general if it was true that ho
icvor issued an encouraging order to hia
aoldiers before an engagement , or a con-
; ratulatory ono aftor.
"Only once did I do auch a thing , " ho
oplied , "and that was when I waagrcon.
[ t waa nftor the battle on Missionary
llidqo , and then I congratulated the
> oys on the good work they did. But
hero waa too much of that sort of
bolishncss in the war , and I didn't care
about ( sharing it. My soldiers didn't
need that sort of thing , you know , and 1
don't bolicvo in bumcombo in or out of
hia army.
" 1 know that the men realized as well
as I the importance ot their duty ,
and they know that I believed in
.hem ; so , you see , it wasn't necessary.
L'hey shared with mo the joy of a
victory , and wouldn't have fult bettor
about it if 1 had issued n thousand or-
[ era. Then , ngain , you know , the larg
est number of buncombe orders vreru ia-
uod by uiiBUcccaaful commanders to
cover their failures and divert attention
rom defeat. "
It may bo aaid of Sheridan that , while
bw goneraln wcro so much talked about
luring the war , ho never blow hia own
lorn. Ho waa never what ia HO called a
'paper general ; " never announced what
10 was going to do , mullJJnovor boasted
iftor ho diu it. After hia last campaign ,
which crushed the tottering rebellion , ho
would have bcon pardonea for at least
ouo triumphant pean of victory , but ho
did not nvon takupart in the grand review -
view ut Washington. IIo modestly un-
( addled his horao and took the cara for
I'uxaa without so .iiuch as a word\jf farewell -
well or congratulation to the country ere
o the army he had so successfully com-
nandcd.
lll'MI.VIHUKNCKS Ol' I.KB'H HUUHKNIIKH.
The general tolls n very interesting
itory about that last campaign against
Liuo , and the incidents of the surrender.
It will bo remembered t at ho headed
off Leo nt Appomaltox court house , and
captured cloven trninn of supplies which
yore waiting for him thero. When Leo
bund out that ho had no stores or am-
nunition for hia army , and that his ro-
.rout waa cut oil' , ho sent a llag of truce ,
which Ouster received and conducted to
Sheridan. The two armies laid on their
anna waiting for Grant , who waa on hia
way to the front.
In the meantime Sheridan and nome uf
lis stall'started to ride ever toward Ap
lomuttox court house , when they were
ired upon by a regiment of rebels , half
concealed among aomo ur.derbruJi. The
general and his party waved their hats
toward the place where the shots came
from , and made all aorta of demonstra
tions to silence the unexpected and mya-
torious attack ; but to no purpose.
Finally the confederate oflicor who
wrought the tUg smd Major Allen , of
jhoridnn'a tull , rode over to aeo wliut
.ho matter waa.
They found a South Carolina regiment
whoso colonel , in a grandiloquent tone ,
informed them that the war wasn't over ,
and that lie and his regiment did not
rocogni/.i ) the authority of General Leo
to make terms for peace , "Jio Gawd ,
air , " exclaimed this gallant Johnny ,
"South Carolinians never surrender ! "
Tilt : LAST ( IA r OP IKK S AllSIV.
The two ollicers ( rode back to General
Sheridan , who , with his party , had re
tired under cover , and reported to him
the situation. The general called Ous
ter and told him there was ono regiment
over in the brush which hndn't gn
enough of it , nnd it would bo well fo
him to go ever there and "snuir it out. '
Ouster ordered his bugler to souiu
"forward , " and at the head of n regimen
dashed ncrota the interval which lay between
twoon the two nrmloa , which < voro drawn
up in long linns nnd stood nt rest , 1 <
wnn n beautiful Sunday morning n per-
feet spring day- and the sight of that
regiment , with Ouster's long tawny halt
BS their banner , dashing nt full gallop
across the fu-hla , evoked cheers from botli
armies.
Meantime , Sheridan had roach od the
court house , where ho mot Gon. Gordon ,
recently senator from Georgia , and Gen ,
Wilcox , who hnd boon his classmate nl
West Point , but whom ho hnd not soon
for ninny yoars. Wilcox has since boon
a door-keopcr of the t'nitcd Stales
senate.
While this party were sitting on the
steps of the court house , chatting fa
miliarly ever the situation , heavy mus
ketry was heard in the distance. Gordon
looked up in anxiety nnd nUrm , nnd
nskcd ono of his nids to rldo ever in thai
direction and find out what it meant.
"Novor you mind , general , " said Sher
idan. "It's nil right. 1 know what it
means. Custor is ever there having aomo
fun with a South Carolinian who never
autr t'doro.1
liv.rd' n insisted on Bonding the ofilcor
to atop tiii' light , but before ho got there
.ho coloni'i had presented Cutter with n
cry-much buttered sword. It was the
ast gasp of the nriny of northern Vir-
UK si-our. "INJUN. "
I showed the general another nownpa-
lor atory , which represented that ho waa
amiliar with several Indian langnngo ? ,

The Albany ( Tex. ) News unyfi the
march of the pruirio dog is a standing
throat against the future prosperity of
tlio grazing districts of that atato. Draw
a line from Rod river south to the Col
orado , BO aa to run about the woatorn
lines of Throckmorton , Slmckelford , Cnl-
alum and Coleman counties , and it
marks the front of the greatest immigra
tion nrmy over dreamed of by man ,
From this line woat 250 miles every
square milo ia invested by thceo devour-
iiitf postu. They thickly inhabit n auc
tion of country 200 miles long nnd 250
miles wide. The advent of the white
man into this country has but increased
thuir numbers , ua man hus destroyed thu
wolves , badgers , rattlesnakes , panthers
and other animals which prey upon thu
prairie dogs , They eat the grans in the
summer and the grass roots in winter ,
and the consequence ia that what was
but a few years ago the finest grazing ru-
giou in America is fust becoming n vor-
duroleus desert. The prairie dag is mi
grating east , nnd within a your or two
haa advanced hia frontier about five
miles. Unless soon cheeked hia ravages
will become enormous ,
