Mr. F. II. Koyos , secretary and general -

buggy company has boon in the city the
past week making nrrangomonN for the
removal of that enterprise to this point.
All that was asked by thorn was thai a
suitable building bo erected by them to
lease as a factory. They require a
building ( iO.00 ! foot and three stories
high. Messrs. Wicklniin Uros. and
Strnub will erect the building on their
own account at a cost of about § : ! ( i,00 ( ) .
The structure will require liOU,000 !
bricks to complete it. The OMiot loca
tion in not yet decided upon , but Mr ,
Keys stated when ho left for homo Fri
day owning that , ho would inform Ilio
secretary of the board of trndo of his
decision in the mutter the forepart of
this week. lie has three sites under
consideration. Ono is just west of tlio
canning factory , another is ono block
south of Broadway and two blocks cast
of the watorwarks pumping station , and
the third adjoins the Uiork's property
in the southern part of the city. The
move will ho made about the 1st of Jan
uary , in order to bo hero to got out tlio
spring orders. Until that time they
will bo busy with orders for winter de
livery , mainly cutters , otc. This enter
prise , employing about a hundred hands
is attracted to this point by the superior
facilities for shipping presented by the
numerous railroads centering hero.
The company baa been in communica
tion with the board of trade for some
time regarding the proposed change ,
but wore unable to make any definite
proposition until recently , as they were
busy potting out an order of § ,000 carts.
This business has grown to b-jor-nous
proportions in a very short time , and
those carts are shipped to all parts o it !
the country. It is these wide-awake > ,

The Wnlton-Mnhor-WillianH assault
ca o was called acain yesterday before
Judge Aylcbisorlli but the prosecuting
witness was not on hand. A bench
warrant was issued to bring him into
court , but Murtihal Guanotla searched
fruitlessly for an hour to llnd the erratic
young man who > o head was o Minmo-
full.i pounded a few wcclvi ago. County
attorney waxed hot and made no at
tempt to conceal hit. belief that the def -
f 0110 had bought oft' the loading wit
ness for the btato. The woman who
was with Williams at tlio tiinu has nlf.o
been spirited away. The cio ; was con
tinued until Monday and the wandering
will be looked up in the meantime and
lined for cot. tempt.
The ca&o of Mrs. Donohuo was also
called. She was charged with disturb
ing tlio peace , by a tenant named Mrs.
Kilbiiin. The testimony showed that
the landlady Had indulged in the very
suggestive amuf-cment of "thumbing
her nose" at tlio prosecuting witness ,
who regarded it ns a breach of the
peaeo. The defendant was a little Kite
in getting into court , whereupon his
honor took occasion to reprimand her.
She then created a little bree/o of ex
citement by a well timed faint , and the
spectators watched the proceedings with
much interest while Marshal Guanolla
carefully poured a couple of gallons of
aqua pura down her back. The treat
ment was very effective and the patient
recovered. The testimony evolved was
quite amusing and the court shared in
the general hilarity as much a * it is
possible for a very dignified judge to do.
Ho finally discharged the defendant ,
who lost no time in trotting out of the
judicial atmosphere. *

Too .Much Water.
The heavy rain of Friday night did
considerable damage in different parts
of the city. On Pierce street the great
amount of water could not llnd a proper
outlet , and undermined the wall of
Cook & Lautorvvapsor's storehouse , causing -
ing it to fall , and doing damage to Iho
amount of WOO.
An extensive washout was made at the
cast end of the Union Pacific bridge ,
and as a result the suburban train serv
ice yesteulay was not of the best. The
damage was replaced during the day.
The effects of the rain was al.-o no
ticed at the excavation for the Mcrrinm
block. Trenches for the foundation of
Iho walls had just boon completed , but
the water caused a general cn\ing in of
the banks , and the work will now have
to bo done over again. An immense
quantity of dirt was washed down onto

K Ijoouinutlvo Whistle ?
Prank B. Taylor , of Hridgoport , Conn. ,
the inventor of tlio "soeonhone , ' ' for
transmitting messages or holding con
versation with tlio engineers while
under full speed on their locomotives ,
has ju.st patented n device which ho
ca'ls ' a tootomotor. In reality it is a
species of phonograph. Mr. Taylor was
fed to believe that bomo mechanical de
vice could be employed to settle the
oft-disputed question in regard to
whistling at grade crossinirs. There
are a largo number of grade crossings
upon which annually many 1 vs are
lot. The lolatives of those kilted in
variably claim that the locomotive
whistle was not .sounded in time to warn
the victims. The railroad companies ,
to protect themselves against damages ,
dispute the point so often taken. Mr.
Taylor now conies to the front with a
toll-tale whistling register , which takes
the sound from the whistle every time
it is blown and records it.
In order to explain its workings the
run of any engine on tlio Now York and
Now Haven road may bo used for illus
tration. Say engine No. 120 draws the
7 o'clock morning train from Now
Haven to New York. The engine is
backed up in front of the depot and at
tached 1o the train. The engineer ,
George C'orhett , stops into thodibpatch-
or'f > ollico to get the time or sot his
watch exactly with the standard time.
The dispatcher hands the engineer a
"tootomoter , " which is already bet for
Knginoer Corbott's run. It in numbered
to correspond with the engine's number
and is dated and ollloially lookedso that
it is impossible for any ono to alter its
register of the whistle soundings. The
"tootomotor" is placed in a pocket
bracket on Iho front of the cab , just be
neath the whistle. Inside the "tooto
motor" is a long roll of tinfoil , upon
which are stamped cross-linos repre
senting every grade crossing on the
road. The roll is unwound from ono
axle to another by menus of a small
clock attachment , so that each line rep
resenting a crossing will bo brought to
the ' 'sounder opening" precisely nt the
same moment thatthe locomotive speeds
over the grade crossing. At the proper
distance before reaching the engineer
blows the standard signal , two long and
two bhort blasts , , or
T o ot , t o ol , too , top.
Those sounds are registered by the
"tootometor. ' * Should the engineer fail
to bound his whistle the ' 'tootomotor"
would show an empty blanlK
And bo Iho run is made jUi Now York ,
the "tootomotor" rolling oil' its strip of
tinfoil in time and ui.ison with the
movement of the engine ; All trains
are run on exact time on tliis road , so
there is very little ehahoo'of ' the "toot
omoter" disagreeing with the time
grade crossings are reached. If extra
whistling is done to drive cows olT the
track or blown for olhor purposes than
grade crossings , the sounds are all reg
istered and an exact record taken of
the whistle's blasts , and the exact lo
cation of the engine on the rails
at the time of the blast is denoted from
ono end of the road to the other. At
the completion of the trip the "tooto
motor" is handed by the engineer to
tlio proper olllclnl , who removes the
roll of sounds and prepares and adjusts
the "tootometor" for the return trip.
The strip * of tinfoil are carefully in
dexed and preserved for future refer
ence , and the engineer credited or
charged with omission of whistles.
In the event of a person being killed
on a grade crossing' the tootometor will
truthfully indicate the whistle blasts and
denote the distance at which they were
blown before Iho crossing was. reached.
The tinfoil strips can bo produced at an
inquest or in a court of justice in ovi-
doneo and dissipate the necessity of an
iiuincnue amount of swearing ns to tlio
fact of the wlnstlo having 'bounded or
not. By running Iho strips through a
phonograph the exact volume of sound
n ml Iho key of the whistle can bo repro
duced. This can bo done at any future
mid convenient timo. Mr. Taylor , the
