The only success which dye houses in
Council lilufls seem to gain is in dying
themselves , Either folks hero do not
have their old clothes made ever , or else
they do not pay big enough prices for
having the work done. Every now anil

Wallace and L. Choynmn on Bryant

The statement was recently made in the

If the district telegraph system had
been in operation , it would have had an
excellent chance yesterday morning to
show its ellleiency as a lire alarm , with
plenty of these boxes thickly located , an
alarm could easily have been sent in
from some one of them , while the hunt
was being made for a key to a lire alarm
box. Very few people know where the
keys to these street boxes are kept , and
in time of excitement , when time is big
money , it is about as much trouble to
hunt up a key as to run to an engine
house and turn in an alarm. It would bo
n good idea to have painted on the boxes
thu place where the key could bo found ,
or else publish n directory or a guide
book. Do you know where the nearest
ularm box is to your residence or your
plnco of business , and if BO , do you know
where to go to get n key in case a tire
should breaK out ? Very few can answer
these queries m the atlirmativo. About
the quickest way is to hunt up a police
man or a fireman , and got him to turn
in an alarm. A telephone or a district
telegraph box would generally bo easier
to iind than either u policeman or a lire-

Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock a fire
broke out in II , A. Hainl's confectionery
nnd fruit store , No. 523 Broadway. In
tliu basi'iuotit were piled up a lot of boxes
mill other combustibles , and the 11 a in OH
started in tlicsu. It is supposed that tbo
4luo was left open , nnd when the lire was
Marled in the furnace in the basement ot
Foster Uros. , next door , some of the soot
getting on lire was carried into the bo\cs.
The clerk in Haird'a stoiv ; , n boy named
Olkor , first discovered the smoke when
he wont into tne rear room to sweep out.
Mr. Uaird ran to tliu nearest Urn alarm
box to turn in an alarm , but could not
lltul out who had the key , and so con-
cliiilod the speediest way was to keep on
running to tliu engine hou.se , where the
alarm was gjven. The lire lads got out
in pretty ipiiek time , but the llames wt < ro
spreading rapidly when they got at work.
] < ) ! a few minutes it looked as though
there was to bo a hot contest with llio
flames , as they were breaking through
into 1-oster Bros' , large drug house ,
where , if once fairly started , they would
have had plenty to feed upon. Prompt
work and the excellent supply of water
with which the city is furnished , soon put
an end to the fight with the llatues. Con
siderable damage was done , ho\vcveras \ it
was. The basement of the building oc
cupied by Jlr. Uaird was badly cluirrcd ,
and the stock about ruined with water
and smoke. The drug hoiibo of 'Foster
Uros. also suffered considerable damage ,
mainly by water.
The buildings are owned by Horace
Kvcrett , whoso loss will amount to less
than that of the occupants. Mr. Haird
was just starting in busiue s. and be
sides the loss on stock he will Miller
from the delay in getting fairly started
again. Ho lias an insurance of $1,500
equally divided between the Rochester Uor
man , of New York , and the Council Hlull's
Insurance company. He estimates his
loss as fully reaching the amount of his
insurance , considering the interference
with his business and the delay , as well
as the stock ruined. Foster Bros , put
their loss at ? 1,000 , which is amply
covered by insurance , they having about
$ 5,000 of insurance placed in the follow
ing companies : Council Kind's Insur
ance company , Niagara , American ,
Imperial , Milwaukee Merchants , JEtnn ,
Hawkeye , Gorman , of New York , Under
writers. Client , Commercial Union ,
( Men Falls , American Fire , PhuMiix ,
Union , Iowa State.
A very similar lire occurred last year ,
when Mr. Ucrksen occupied the building
now rented hy Mr. Baird The damage
was about the same , but the lire this
time seemed to got a greater headway ,
and was moro threatening to Foster
Bros. At one time when the Hume * bo-

To Bo or Not to Be.
Tho.prohibitionists have taken fresh
hope from the recent decision of the t > u-
prcmc court of Iowa iu the case of Le
mon et al. , vs Wagner & Sherlock. In
this case a petition for an injunction re
straining the defendants from running
their saloon , was filed in Judge Loof bou-
row's court. The defendants asked for a
change to the United States court , and
Judge Loufbourow granted the request.
The prohibitionists appealed from this
ruling to the supreme court of the state.
The supreme court at its term atDubuque
has reversed the decision of Judge Loof-
bourow on this point , and this in effect
means that the supreme court of the state
does not believe these saloon oases should
bo sent to the United States court. This
particular case has already been sent to
the federal courts , and now that the state
supreme court has inado n decision
ugainst such an order , the case will have
to bo got .back again into the state court.
To thus got it back may take a little time ,
and some more litigation , so that so far
as this case is concerned it docs not seem
to be liable to an immediate ending. It
is not because of this particular case , that
the prohibitionists take so much encour
agement , but because they believe that
this decision of the supreme court will
lead Judge Conner , of the circuit court ,
to decide immediately on the cases now
pending bcforo him. In these cases a
like motion was made to have them sent
to the federal courts , and it is claimed
that in view of this decision , he will
at once overrule the application
and order injunctions to issue at once. In
these cases the federal courts have already
decided to scud them back to the state
court , but from this decision in the fed
eral court the saloon men have appealed
to the UniloU States supreme court. They
claim that pending this appeal there can
be nothing moro done in the circuit court
by Judge Connor , but the other side
claim that ho never having ordered the
cases Bent from his court , ho has but to
ovuTiilo the motion to do so and issue
the injunctions. There are some lu- )
buquo cases sent up to the United States
supreme court on the same question , and
these cases are sot for the October term.
It has been expected that Judge Conner
would watt until those cases were decided
before making any decision , Now it is
claimed by the prohibitionists that , hav
ing the decision of the state supreme
court to guide him , he has no business to
wait for tliu United States supreme court
It is also intimated that unless some
speedy decision is reached in the cases
now pending , that these cases will all bo
dropped and now cases started under the
now Clark law. One prominent prohi
bitionist remarked to the IIK ! : man yes
terday : "if I was a betting man I would
.stake every dollar I am worth and all I
could raise , that the saloons in Council
Hind's will bo closed within two weeks. "
"You do not moan to say that you can
stop whisky being sold iu Council
Blulls ? "
"No. But wo will do away with the
open saloon. There ma1 bo some boot
leg business carried on. but if wo can do
away with the opou saloon , it will bo a
long stride towards tint bettor. If folks
want to drink bad enough to sneak around
in the alloys , and carry bottles around in
tho'r pockets , I don't suppose wo can
help it altogether , but there won't ' bo
many who will want to run the risk of
prosecution for the sake of doing busi
ness tliis way. "
The saloon men on the other side , and
many citizens who are not directly or in
directly concerned in the business , favor
the keeping open of saloons , rather than
have such a boot-leg business thrive hero.
They nr o that the city needs the rev-
emio.'Uml that so Jong sis whisky is being
sold at all nore , it is better to have it
where it cau bo watched and regulated.
These , nnd the saloon men , do not scorn
to fear any immediate closing of the
saloons , 'Ihe city authorities arc pro
ceeding to collect the regular monthly
licence under the "pop" ordinance , with
the understanding that the saloons will
not be closed for some mouths yet any-

The supcriiitendcncy of the institution
of the deaf and dumb is attracting con
siderable comment among the many
friends of tbo institution , and especially
here where the Institution is located , and
where so many come in personal contact
with Superintendent Hammond. There
is no question but that Mr , Hammond
has made many friends hero during his
slay. To such the report of the legisla
tive committee recommending his re
moval comes as a painful surprise. There
has been much sympathy created in his
favor by the fact that those who have
howled Ihe loudest about the manage
ment of the institution , have been howl
ing about so many matters In which
personal malice was Hie evident motive ,
tliat the public supposed this was also a
case of falsely crying "wolf. " Now that
the investigation has been inado. and the
result declared , It is found that many of
thft charge's against the management
were exaggerated , and that spite has
naturally inado the nio.st possible out of
what facts reallv existed. Several of Hie
business men of tbn city have remarked
lo the llr.t : man that Superintendent
Hammond is Hie onlv real business man
who has been at the head of the insti
tution , and such is quite the ireneral feel
ing among that class of the community.
Others have mot him hocially , and have
seen much to admire in the man. Others
have vi ited the institution from lime to
time , and from such casual acquaintance
with the work , declare tlio management
is all right.
A card has been prepared and pub
lished , signed by a number of the best
citi/.eus of Council Binds , declaring that
the management of the institution lias
never been belter , and endor.-ingit heart
ily , and declaring thatii great injustice
has been done by the legislative report.
The signers also urge the board to retain
the superintendent tor another year , de

Now that so many friends are coming
to the front , and declaring that the man
agement is all right , the query naturally
arit-es as to how many of those really
know much about the details of the man
agement , and how many of them know
what the testimony was on which the re
port ' < is made , recominci.diug bis re-
unnul. This investigation was conducted
secretly , and the testimony has never
been made public Some claim that this
evidence was damaging in the extreme ,
and that facts were developed which
show that iho committee wore fully justi
fied in their report.
It is understood that the board of trus
tees will pay little attention to petitions
from OtnsiricrB nml flTOH ! cHi/iins , or the
indorsements of Mr. Hammond's former
record , but that before they will consider
the question of retaining him in the in
stitution they will secure and carefully
peruse all the evidence taken before the
committee. It is dillicult to imagine how
any one can fairly bay that the report
does the superintendent a gross injustice ,
if he has not read the evidence as pre
sented. Much less does it seem that the
board can defy the action of the legisla
ture without thoroughly acquainting
themselves with the same facts on which
the committee made up its report. The
evidence has been taken verbatim and is
on record. The carefulness with which
the public generally has been kept from
perusing it awakens , suspicion that it
contains cither a great deal too much to
suit the superintendent , or a great deal
too little to suit the committee. It seems
that oven these who are so ready to en
dorse Mr. Hammond have not had any
opportunity to acquaint themselves
with the evidence brought against him ,
except by hearsay , and few if any of
thorn have read the testimony given by
the witnesses. Such an acquaintance
with the testimony seems necessary be

A. Christian Convention.
Extensive preparations are being made
for the annual convention of Christian
workers to bo. held in the opera house
next Sunday evening. The general topic
to bo considered is that of orphan and
destitute children , their needs and the
duties of Christians to them. The exer
cises are to consist of brief addresses on
various phases of the work , interspersed
with singing , recitations , etc , by the
children of the Homo of the Friendless.
The Baptist churches of Woodbine and
Dow City are to give up their services seas
as to enable the pastors and others from
there an opportunity to attend. In this
city the pastors of the Congregational ,
Presbyterian and Scandinavian Baptist
churches are to participate in the exor
cises. Rev. B. F. Thickstun , Professor
McNaughlon and Doctor B. F. Montgom
ery are to give addresses. Among Iho
prominent Sunday school workers of
Harrison county is Mr. H. A. Shaw , who
promises to bo present and will sneak on
the rotation of temperance to the chil
dren. Doctor Fish , who recently deliv
ered such an able course of lectures hero ,
is to speak on the relation of the Protes
tant church to the children. A poem ,
written by Rev. Mr. Crofts , is to bo re
cited by one of the children. Other in
teresting features are being prepared ,
and all the exorcises will bo made so
brief that the whole may bo brought
within the limits of a reasonable evening

in Soap , We are simply
our A. B. C. Soap on the most magnificent scale ever attempted by any one firm. '
Three years ago we started out to sell A. 13. C. Soap on its merits , to-day thousands of the most
intelligent housekeepers in this and all the principal cities of the Union use our A. B. C. Soap and marvel
why it is not used in every home.
The principal grocers throughout the Union tell s one reason why its use has not become genera )
is that -
lias not been sufficiently advertised ; and another reason is , because many people who have bought it , dij
not give it the necessary and intelligent attention it deserves. They did not read the directions , and
finding that it would not wash by laying A. B. C. Soap on top of the bundle of soiled clothes , they fell
back to five cent soap.
thousands wri \\is : "Your A B. C. Soap is all that you claim for it ; it not only gives satisfaction ,
but we find that our most intelligent cummers say that u is
A. BLESSING IN THE HOUSEHOLD
and arc enthusiastic and speak in the highest terms of praise about it. Why don't you advertise it ? "
It is therefore that we are making this extraordinary effort to bring A. 11. C. Soap to the notice of
every intelligent person and in order to induce every one to buy it , and continue to use it until they have

TO OBTAIN A PRESENT ;
Those who have not used A. B. C. Soap , of course , will ask , "what is it ? "
A. B. C. Soap is our own invention , and all who have used it cheerfully concede to it the merit of
being the greatest improvement ever made in domestic economy. A. B. C. Soap , and the MODE OF
WASHING WITH IT , is as different from all other soaps , and the old way of washing , and is as
much an improvement over the old system , as traveling by railway is over that by an ox-cart. A girl of
18 , or the most delicate pcison , can wash
WITHOUT THE LEAST EXERTION.
( * one hour , more clothes with A. B. C. Soap , than the most robust , with the hardest work and slavish toil
i m wash with the best soap , and the old way of washing , in three hours. And withal , A. II. C. Soap is
t\je \ mildest and sweetest soap ever manufactured. We warrant you can wash baby with it and it will look
4 ! sweet and fresh as a rose.
Ilemember , that while you can use A. B. C. Soap in anyway or manner you please , it is best to use
