Your committee is of the opinion that the allowance of the bill was a blunder , not a crime ; that the responsibility for' tlio blunder rests , lir > t , on Mr. * .Loedor. chairman of the committee on fire and water works , for his gross negligence in not geUiug the papers long on ugh be fore thu council met to thoroughly exam ine them and make an intelligent report to the council. Secondly , on" the auditor who put Hie item in' tlio appro priation ordinance , though he had doubts of its correctness , and did not communi cate his doubts to the council or any member thereof. Thirdly , on the two other members of the committee - Furay and Goodman -who signed the report withoutcxamiiiing it.

On Monday evening tlio council shall sit as a committee of the whole and call the roll of committees to see what business is before ( ho commit tees. All of which is respectfully sub- mlttced. M.

TlioQuohllon of Free School Hooks. Considerable discussion was indulged in at the clo-m of the meeting of the board of education Monday evening in re gard lo'tho question of free books for the publio schools , Thu , pelit'ou which was presented to the boiini bMr. . Co- burn seemed to voice the popular t-enti' incut in favor of giving thu plan a thorough trial , and nearly all of thu members of the board are in favor of it. The plan is , in fact , not entirely a new one in ( his city , as al ready the board has purchased 700 read ers. liUU : bati3 ! and iUKIO music IxKiktj , .which they have furiii.-ned the pupils for usii free ot chargo. The plan now is to enlarge ' upon the start already jntulo , ami furnish all Hio books and ma * tarial used In the public schools to the pupils without any coH to them. It. id estimated that tliGcnnnge will ncees- ftit.'itft the okpimdilurc by the board of rbout * 7.0f0i i.jt , as the changy will b ? gradual , tin : expense will not be felt , It is intended to furnish the pupils with thu new books as fast as the ones now in use become worn and out of date. The proposed plan has been success fully tried in New York , Philadelphia and other cities in the ea-t and is work ing like a charm. Cleveland is the only place whom an etlbrt has boon made to establish it which has proved unsuccess ful There an injunction was secured restraining tho- board from purchasing the bonds , and It has never been dis solved. No such trouble , hoxvuvur , is anticipated here in case the plan is adopted. In order to make sure of thu matter , some of the members of the board will take legal advice In regard to the matter to see whether such a move could be made A number of questions worn raided by members of the board in regard to adopting the plan. Mr. Gibbon ex- pnwed the belief that , if adopted , it would have a socialistic U'ndeitey.givln ! ; the M'holara the idea that if they could luuo their Hunool books furnished free. all other property could bo fiirnisned them in common. Another question will be whether the pupils will lake as good care of books furnished by the board as they would of their own properly. The.-o questions , together with numerous others arising , will be fully discussed at a meeting of the. com mittee who have the matter in charge nest Monday evening. All who are in terested in tlio matter are invited to at tend the meeting and express their views on tlio matter. The Tead Humorist. Mrs. W. II. Shaw and Mr. William II. Duff , tlio wife and # on-in-law of W. II. Shaw ( "Josh Billings" ) , came in on the morning Union Pacific train from the west , accompanying the remains of the great humorist , which are being taken east for burial. The hotly was enclosed in a metallic eal-kct this being surrounded bo a burial box- . This latter had boon broken in tlio journey from Monterey , California , and Mr. Duff determined to have a now ono to enclose the metallic casket. Accord ingly the remain ! ; were taken to the undertaking rooms of Drexel & Maul , where the casket was carefully en closed iu a now and strong wooden box' . Before the lid was nailed down the me tallic casket was opened , and the re mains of thu great deceased worq viewed for the first time since the departure from California. The face and body \vuro in a remarKublo state ol preservation , though a thin coat of magnesia placed over the countenance , gave it ghastly ap pearance. The eyes were but bligbtly sunken , and the. expression of the mouth was natural and peaceful. The face was covered with a heavy , though not long , growth of beard. The body was taken east on this C. B. & Q. , and will bo interred in Lanes- borough , Mass. "Tho account of Mr. Shaw's death as reported in the telegraph was substan tially correct , " said Mr. Dun" , the son-in- law , to u , reporter for the BIE. : "lie had been ailing for about a year , though the nature of bis complaint could not oe de- lined. Some weeks ago we thought that a we = torn trip would bo benelicial to his health , and accordingly he started for California , accompanied by Mrs. Shaw and myself. For a few weeks previous to his death his health had been excep tionally good , and we all believed , that the California air would soon restore his system to its normal state. On last Thurs day morning be was sitting on the front porch of the hotel in Monterey , when muttering a few inarticulate words , ho fell over and expired almost Instantly. i'he complaint was undoubtedly apop lexy. No , he bad never had an attack of this disease before , nor anything re sembling an attack , though occasionally years ago be would sutler from vertigo. lie was a large , corpulent man , and took but little cxcrciie , and his habits of life wore ouch that an attack of apoplexy would be very natural. But up to within pay a year , his health was remarkably ; ood. "Yes , " continued Mr. Duff , in answer : o further inquiry , "Mr. Shaw was in the labit of writing for the press up to the imo of his death. It was little or no labor for him to compoj-e--most of his work was done spontaneously , without any apparent ell'ort. Whenever an idea would htriko him ho would note it down ind work it up at his leisure. lie was .udefatigablu in his labors , and jiibt he- lore his death was planning for a lecture which he was to deliver for tlie benefit of i local society. lie was generoun and gentle in his disposition , honored and beloved - loved by all who knew him.

Yesterday morning JiJd ; f Slcnborg came into the county courtr anil testi list ! an to the facts -in the case Poland also testified hi ? hi * own be half. It seems that stVmc time ago he was arrested as a snsuiOious char aeter , and sentenced by JfiUjcvi Stcnhorg to a Urm ot sixty 'days in the county jail. Sentence'was sus pended , however , on condition that Polnntl leave town at onetf. He did so but. returned , and was captured and sent up to the county jail la Servo out the suspended sentence. Judge Hawes made thti point that a police judge diet not posluss the powarof suspending sentence anv moro than lie did that of pardoning , lie had no right , as Judge Hawes thought , to bullish a man from the city. District Attorney Hstcllc replied wltli the argument thai , admitting this point , that Judge Sten- berg's action was not lawful tlio com mitment of Poland had been made out and ho should have been taken to thu county jail a.s soon as he could bo found. Judge McCullouh has taken the casi under advisement , and will render his decision shortly. A Hold Itnbhcry.

She saw it waa useless to struggle , and made no outcry. It was not long before she sank into un consciousness. The servant girl who arose about 0 o'clock discovered tlio situation of affairs and summoned medical assistance. Mrs. McKcn/.ie was .still in a state of uncon sciousness but was soon restored. It was al o discovered that Mr. M. had Iveen dosed with chloroform , probably before Mrs. MeKoii7.ie. Fortunately neither of the couple were seriously affected , al though the oousenuonees might easily have been moro dangerous than they wens. It was discovered that the burglars , whoever they w. 'e , had made a prctlv extensive raid , having carried elf about $ ? worth of money and valuables. There is no clue. Mrs , MoKonzio is un able to identify the man who chloro formed her.

J'he resignation was turned over nearly a week ago , and is now in the hands of Judge Wakeloy , The condition of all'airs which led to this , it is difficult to outline. For two vcurs there has been a growing fe'jlinif of lissatistaetlim with the dean , but this : cclingdid not make itself painfully min- : fest until after the death of Bishop JlnrkhOii. Many of the members liavo jeen complaining that the dean's ser mons were not of the highest order of ex cellence , and that , in snort , ho was not qualified to act as the leader of so im- lortant a congregation as that of Trinity Jathedral. The resignation hah not yet been acted ipou , though it is expected that it will bo shortly. No announcement has been undo 'as to the deacon's probable mieeos- sion. _ AltttKc ofBtreot Car HorscM.
