The Coining Mayor.
The name of M. F. Ilohrcr is announced
with considerable enthusiasm as that of the
coining mayor of the city. Ho Is a young
man of largo property interests , of a great
deal of enterprise and push , nnd it Is believed
that ho will bo chosen to fill the vacancy
caused by Mayor Gronoweg'g resignation.
The Hru bunted him up yesterday to learn
what he knew concerning the mayoralty
honors. Mr. Ilohrcr was , as usual , very
frank , and remarked :
"About all 1 know about it is that I was
approached on the subject with the query as
to whether I would accept such a position , if
the council chose me. At ilrst I did not see
how I could afford to dn it. I was not look
ing for that or any other position , I know
that there is a big drain on the time , strength
and money of any man who acts as mayor of
this city. The salary is a mere bagatelle. A
tnan In my circumstances cannot afford to
spare the time foom his own business. Still ,
the compliment is one which ought not to bo
tossed aside by any man. I concluded that
if thu position was given me , I would try to
till it the best I could for the short time until
a mayor could bo elected by the i > cople. I
don't know , any more than you do , and per
haps not so much , as to whether I will bo
chosen or not. I haven't sought it , and so
shall not be disappointed If some one else Is
chosen. I have merely replied in answer to a
rjucry put to me , that if chosen , I would ac
cept for sixty days , or whatever time it may
be until the spring election. "
"Hut how about your running for the full
"Oh , that Is a matter which docs not need
: o bo decided now. I do not see bow I could
afford to do it. My present feeling is that I
: ould not agree , even if the position was at
my disposal , to serve as mayor for more than
: hls short haul. There Is time needed to con
sider any such question as that , howovcrand
that question even isn't here yet. No , what
I've said Is Just my personal feeling in regard
to the matter. I think Council Bluffs is on
the eve of a big growth , a boom in fact , and
'f this city will seize its opportunities in 1888.
; he future prosperity can not be foretold. If
it lets these opportunities slip by , I'm afraid
they will bo gone forever. 1 am willing to
help any way I can , whether as a short term
major , or a long term citizen.

One chapter of controversy over the Ogden
house property is drawing to a close. The
owner of the property , Mr. Stout , claims the
furniture under virtue of a landlord's writ of
attachment , and Mr. Baldwin claims It by
virtue of a chattlo mortgage. While the con
troversy has been going on in court the
furniture has remained in the hotel , and Mr.
Stout has been in possession of the house ,
which ho owns. lie has not been able to pro
ceed with any permanent arrangements in re
gard to leasing the hotel , or tilting it up
anew , because ho could not tell what disposi
tion would finally bo made of thp furniture ,
Ho has been anxious to huvo the furniture
sold and the proceeds kept until the contro
versy was decided in the courts. On the
other hand , Mr. Baldwin opposed the sale of
thu furniture , claiming that if sold by the
sheriff it would enable Mr. Stout , to whom
the furniture would bo worth more than to
any ono else , to bny it in at a song , there
being few. if any , to bid against him.
Under the law the sheriff can call upon the
court to appoint a jury to determine whether
property held by him should bu sold or not.
It is sometimes better to sell property than
to hold it , especially when the property is of
a nature , or so situated as to bo liable to de
tcrloato in value. Sheriff Heel availed him
self of this provision , and the Jury has beci
appointed , the arguments and ovldcnco have
been heard and the decision reached. It is to
the effect that the sheriff should sell the
furniture between now and the 23d of Jan
In accordance with that finding the sheriff
will sell the furniture of the Ogucn house on
the date named. The sale will doubtless
cause matters to assume a new form at this
old and popular hotel of the city. If Mr ,
Stout bids in the furniture , ho can then go
ahead with his Improvements and his ar
rangements for opening the hotel in first-
class shape , without any fear of having his
arrangements interfered with by having the
furniture removed , or changes made by later
decisions. If the furniture is sold to some
one else , and removed from the hotel , then
ho will bo in condition to act accordingly , and
can refit the hotel completely now. It will
enable Mr. Stout to go ahead with his plans ,
whatever they may bo , and the public may
expect to see the Ogdcn take its place as ono
of the best hotels In the west.
The controversy over the proceeds of the
sale can then go on indefinitely , without
causing any. delays or trouble In the practical
management of thu hotel. The public can bo
accommodated , while these who have claims
in court can likewise bo accommodated.

Into. Still they come , these spoijtrul
messengers , to teach us that there are

takes comilzaneo ofi Hero is another.5'
The village ot Farniingdalo , Queen's
county , L. I. , ia a suburb of the rapidly
growing city of Brooklyn. It's people
are of the most conservative natnro ,
mostly descendants from old Puritan
fathers , who came hero before the revo
lution , and Presbyterians almost to a.
man. All are very much excited at
present over the occurrence of a. re
markable spiritual manifestation that
cumo to light without the presence in
their midst of a medium. Three days
ago the Enquirer correspondent re
ceived a letter from his aunt , who lives
in the village mentioned , requesting
him to come down and hear the re
markable story. On arriving in Farm-
ingdalo the following is the story which
ho heard , and which is authenticated
by the persons before whoso eyes the
strange event occurred.
John P. Powell , esq. , is civil magis
trate for the village , or rather ho is
justice of the peace. Ho is a member in
nigh standing of the church , and every
way reliable. He is married nnd hns
several grown children. Ho lives in a
largo , old fashioned house , surrounded
by tall spruce and elm trees , with a
high stone wall around the lawn. Last
week , ono night , ho had retired to bed
and got into a doze. Mrs. Powell was .
sleeping soundly. There was no light
in the room , but the moon , half way up
the sy , was sending a broad beam of
ghostly light into the east window.
Everything was as still as a country
town usually is , but a slight moaning
wind that tossed about the leafy sprueo
tree boughs. Suddenly Mr. Powell
awoke with a start from his doze. Ho
had heard a door open. What could it
bo that had made the noise ? He thought
of thieves and quickly arose , and
was pulling on his clothing when
ho heard n light tread of feet to his
door. Ho stopped breathing in his
anxiety , for ho thought ho was about to
bo robbed. On came the tread to his
door , which was quickly thrown wide
oponand in an iiibtont almost was closed
again. Did anyone enter ? Mr. Powol
asked himself , for ho could see no ono ;
but the doubt was soon settled in the
nfllrnmtivo. Something , at least , did
enter , for ho still heard the light tread
of footsteps anproaching him , but could
see nothing. Did his eyes belie him , or
did ho see two feet , without body , approaching
preaching ? His hair , he sny.s , bristled
up , and his spine verily crept a name
less horror seized him. Ghosts , thought
he ; is it possible that there are such
things ? Suddenly the tread passed into
the broad moonbeam from the window.
Now was the marvel revealed ! The
greenish moonlight lit up the outlines
of two persons shadows that were
perfectly transparent , and scemc l
to reveal n ghostly gleam only on their
outlines. A man and a woman both
young , both handsome and as their
spectral forms became more strongly
materiali/.cd on passing outof the moon
light , Mr. Powel thought ho could
recognize both their faces. Soon he
was sure of it , and in a moment more
they both confronted him , no longer
looking like ghosts , however , and no
ono seeing them then would have be
lieved that they were not entirely
human ; in fact , dwellers upon earth.
In spite of what he had already seen ,
Mr. Powel began to think ho was being
played a trick upon , but , on looking
again , after rubbing his eyes , ho saw
that they could not bo human , as both ,
to his certain knowledge , had been dond
nearly a year. This only increased his
horror , but lie gathered strength to
speak to them , which somehow ho re
membered was the proper thing to do
on such an occasion.
"What do you want ? " stammered
"Wo want to bo married ! " was the
answer which the more greatly horri
fied the squire.
"Married ! " ho echoed.
"Yes , married , and quickly , in the
most binding form known to the law.
We haven't any time to lose , either. "
"But you must have at least ono wit
ness. " said the squire , hoping ho had
found a good idea.
"Well , then , take Mrs. Powell , " said
the would-bo ghostly bridegroom , nnd
not waiting for the squire to do so , he
approached the bed and shook Mrs.
Powell's arm quite sharply. She at
once awoke , and on sping so strange a
sight , gave a piercing shriek. "Bo
still , " said the ghost. "You will not bo
hurt ; you are needed for a few min
utes. " By this time she had awakened ,
and was looking at her husband. Ho
returned her gaze as ho says , "without
flinching , " and said , "My dear , those
people want to be married , and you are
needed as a witness. "
"What ! Katie Baylis and -John Van
Siso here and want to bo married ! La !
I thought they had died more than a
year ago ? " "Well , however , they are
here now , and I'm going to hitch them
as soon as I can , dead or alive , " said the
'squire , growing desperate. "Shall I
light the lamp ? "
"No ! " said the "for
, no ghosts , you
cannot see us if you do , but proceed at
once with the marriage. "
'Squire ' Powell told the ghosts to join
hands and stand before him. Then ho
proceeded with the usual formula until
itcamoto "until death do us part , "
which was left out as unnecessary. Then
the groom produced a blank marriage
certificate , which all present signed
and which the b ido put into her bosom.
"Is that all there is to it ? " said the
groom. "Yes , " answered the squire ;
"except the magistrate , usually kisses
the bride , " added ho , forgetting the
ghostly character of the contracting
parties , and remembering , perhaps ,
occasions in which ho had availed him
self of this privilege. "Then the bride
must bo kissed , " said the groom. This
at onoo brought the fcquiro to his senses
and made his hair raise again. "Kiss
the bride ! " ho echoed. The bride
stopped forward at this , evidently
thinking it an invitation. She brought
her face to his , and with a desperate
endeavor ho gave her a proper kiss. As
his lips met hers , ho says , a terrible
coldness seemed poured Into him. He
felt as though ho was dying , but almost
at once recovered himself. "Is there
anything else ? " asked the groom.
"Nothing , " answered the squire
faintly. " And now I sup
pose you would both like to know
what this is for. There is no
reason why you should not. You already
know the story of our guilty intorcoui o
while wo were alive on earth , and that
it resulted in our deaths. We are now

By the time ho had liniseed this long
speech ho had perceptibly grown less
material , and in a lew minutes both
bride and groom had faded away.
Such is the story which Mrs. Powel
told on the next day , and her husband
conlirmed it every particular.
The story of the lives of John Van Siso
and Katie Baylis is quite romantic.
John Van Siso was the son of n poor
farmer in the neighborhood. Katie was
the daughter of a well-to-do country
gentleman , a retired merchant. They
fell in love. Their parents were dead
against their maVrriage , and it was tji
old story that followed. Love was too
strong for parent ) ! or any other bonds.
They met constantly. At last Katie
gave birth to an illegitimate child , still
alive. She died in child-birth. John
died soon after of what was called by the
neighbors hasty. con sumption , but his
friends knew it was of broken heart.
