Hot About llio Scwcr Ditch.
There was sotno lively talk yesterday
between City Knginuor Tostevin and Mr.
Swccuny , the foreman for Mlteliell Vin
cent , who has the contract for the new
sewer ditch. It appears that the excava
tion of the ditch is completed , and that the
contractor wants to htvo : the work ac
cepted tilul the account settled. The city
engineer claims , and in this seems to ho
supported by at least some of the al
dermen , that the banks are not fin
ished tip according to contract and
that the work cannot bo accepted
until this is done. Yesterday the
engineer addressed a communication to
Mr. Sweeney , statins that he , Mr.
Sweeney , had informed him that the
work was completed and asking its ac
ceptance , but that the work was not sat
isfactorily completed , except from
Hroadway south to 1'ifth tivennn. Kor
that distance the banks had been graded
up according to contract , but the rest of
the banks must be fixed the same w.iy
efore all the work could be. accepted.
Mr. Sweeney responded to this that he
lad never informed the engineer that the
ivortt was comuletcd , but that he had
munly asked that the engineer should
lecide whether it was completed satisfac
torily , and if so to accept it , but if not to
jay so , stake out the work to bo done ,
md tell him to go on with the work. Tin )
city engineer tried to got the council to
gether to go over the work and see
.vhcthcr they wanted to accept it or not ,
ml the aldermen seemed to shrink from
aliing the responsibility. Finally the
ity engineer concluded that he would
, ako the responsibility , and he pro-
iecdcd yesterday afternoon to set some
takes showing where the banks should
> o formed. Air. Sweeney says he has
been waiting since the first of the month
for the city to decide ! one way or the
: ) tlier , anil his teams have been lying idle
n the meantime. Them was much hot
, alk about the matter yesterday between
.hose two , the eityengincerelaiming that
Sweeney had boldly refused to comply
with the provisions ! of the contract in re
gard to the bunks , and Sweeney claiming
hat he had been wrongly used , and that
.he engineer did not understand his busi-
tess. The matter will bo brought up be-
'oie the eon neil at its next meeting , and
he war will probably be returned. As to
he other bone of contention , the evtcn-
lion of the sew r ditch , that is still drag
ging along in the coiut.0 , and will not bj
Laken up probably until this much of the
contract work has been passed upon.

It is with pleasure that the BEE an

ilcn wood , has decided to locate in Coun
cil Ulutl's. and has entered into partner
ship with Mr. Jacob Sims , the title of the
ie\v firm to be Stone < & Sims. The ollieos
n Shugart & Bono's block , now occupied
by Mr. Sims , will be retained , the loca
tion being as desirable as any in the city
: iml the otHces being attractively and
onvenicntly furnished and equipped.
L'ho name of John Y. Stone is a familiar
one throughout Iowa , and is by no means
an unknown one beyond the boundaries
of the state in which ho has for years
been so popular , both at the bar and In
political circles. Ho lias been honored
by the people time ana again , and has
himself done honor to the oOicial posi
lions to which he has thus been called.
an attorney ho has always held a high
rank and woii most brilliant success.
Mr. Sims has buen in the practice of
law here- for oiglit vears , and has estab
lished a i imputation which renders him a
worthy party in so strong a combination.
Gifted with far more than average abil
ity , he ha.s been thoroughly cultured , has
buen and is a close student , and by his
varied and extensive experience has ri-
jgciiod into one of the htronge.st attorneys
in tiie state. His integrity as well as lu.s
ability i.s beyond iiiestion | , and his sue
c-s * is proot Milliuiont that the people ap
procialc both his ability and honcnty.
The new firm is a strong one indeed ,
and that it will be a successful one there
can be no doubt , composed as it is of two
mnn who have already won their way
into popular favor and high honors. 11

A case of over-anxiety to secure a col
lection is reported as having caused a
real deal of trouble to n woman resid
ing near the corner of Second avenue
and Sixteenth street , which has caused
no little emotion in that neighborhood ,
and excited much sympathy for the f.un-
ly. It appears that the husband , who is
a railway man , recently loft the city to
take a position on another road , and
found himself unable to settle his gro
cery bill. He staled the circumstances to
his creditor and borrowed a few dollars
more with which to go to his new work.
The promised time of payment having
passed , and the indebtedness not having
been met , it is said that the firm went to
the house during the absence of the wife ,
who had taken her little babe and pone
to a friend's house , and all the household
goods were sei/.ed. The seizure and car
rying away arc said to have been without
any attachment or mortgage , and a storm
followed The goods liave since been
taken back and the matter compromised
in some way. The friends of the woman
are highly incensed over the proceed-

intention to pay the bill as soon as possi

Long Branch Letter to thn Jersey City
Argus : News has recheil this city to-day
that Klislm John Morrison , aged 75 years
old , the oldest and wealthiest hermit in
the state of Now Jersey , is dying alone
in his little hut , situated about four miles
from hero on the road leading from Ash
bury Park to Popular. Morrison , has
lived a hermit life for nearly half a cen
tury. He was at one time a well known
produce merchant in New York. The
story of his life , disappointment in love ,
and consequent life of exclusion from the
outside world is nn interesting one ,
Fifty-eight years ago he was a farm
boy , apprenticed'to an old New Kngland
farmer named Syker. Ho disliked the
work , but stuck manfully to it for six
years , when his master died leaving him
in his will $100 in cash. It was more
money than ho had ever seen before , let
alone possessing. He took it to one of
the members of the town directory and
asked him what hu should do with it.
The reply was , "Go to school and learn
something , " He took the advice and in
four years graduated from the local
school with high honors. Then ho wont
to college , and after a full eourso put out
his shingle in Keene , N. II. It read :
"Kli&lm John Morrison , Attorney at
Law. " Business was dull , and for n
long time it was u question whether ho
could keep from starving. One day ,
about a year after he had started in
business , a client came to him and asked
if ho could find a purchaser for a lot of
grain which the man had to sell. Morrison
wrote to a New York grain-merchant and
by return mail be leceivcd an order for
the cooils. His commission on the
transaction amounted to about seven
hundred dollars. The Idea of starting
an exchange for the sale of grain for the
farmers of the surrounding country en
tered his head and he invested the com
mission on the sale in renting a store. It
was something new and novel to the
farmers to have a place to sell
their produce so near home , and as they
got as good prices for it as they could
get in Boston or any of the big markets ,
they patronized him. His business grew
to such proportions that he soon cave up
his practice and devoted his whole time
to his exchange. In a couple of years he
started a branch store in Boston. Bus
iness Increased so rapidly that lie was
unable to attend to it himself , and so ho
sold one half his Interest to Joseph Coyle.
Coyle was left in charge of the Keenc
anil Boston stores while Morrison went
to New York and opened another. Good
fortune attended mm , and in a short
time he retired with a forturn of $ r00 ,
000. A mouth or so after
ho had been in New York he mot a
very beautiful yonm ? lady named Kate
Kirby. He visited her regularly , and in
a year he became engaged to be married
to her. The wedding was postponed ,
however , from time to" time , and at last
the lovers quarreled over some trivial
matter and parted. Hardly a week had
passed after the quarrel before Miss
Kirby was married to an intimate friend
of Morrison. The latter seemed heart
broken , and through a lawyer he pur
chased the old Kirby farm , near Long
Branch , from an uncle of his old sweetHeart -
Heart , lie moved from the city imme
diately and erected a dwellimr or , more
correctly speaking , a hut , near the cen
ter of the farm , and settled down to live
in seclusion. From that day to this no
other human being has ever been known
to set foot across the threshold of his
habitation. To-day Morrison is seventy-
live years old , of medium height , snare
figure , and has u short gray stnbblo
beard. His chierdlslikc is a woman , and
he will never , if he can help it , look at
one. Ho has no known relatives. His
money he is supposed to keep buried on
different parts of the farm.
