The ordinance reducing the faro on the
electric motor line to 3 cents within the
cfty limits Is now In the hands of the Judi
ciary committee. The city attorney has re
ported , after two months'of delay and In
vestigation , that the city has the rlpht to
rcduco the rates provided they iiro round to

the charter which have been relied upon by
the friends of the motor company. In the

The judiciary committee now consists of
Aldermen Smith , Jennings and Gelso. Two
of the members of this committee held over
from last year. About a year ago un
ordinance was referred to the Judiciary pn > '
viding fora regulation of the rates of motor
trains. It was kept by the con.mltteo for
about twelve months without making a re
port. At last , after one life had been sacrl
flood and flvo or six people seriously in
Jured , another ordinance making the re
quired regulations was put up to bo looked
nt and , If the people kick iiard enough , to
bo passed. It has been on the tapis since
Juno ! 1 and sidotni'-kod from time to time.
It Is now understood that the case will coino
up next on August 7.
Aldorimin Smith Is quoted ns saying that
. ho docs not Intend to bo used as a club foi
forcing the motor company Into a tight
place , and It Is to bo presumed that ho was
lifting In the capacity of self-appointed pro
tector of the motor company when lie as
sisted thu other member of the committee In
shelving the ordinance for so long. It re
mains to bo seen whether the same disposi
tion will bo imido of the 9-cciit faro ordi
nance. The uoiiplo who are hacking the
movement are Just bold enough to assert
that if any dilatory tactics are adopted they
will see that thu public fully understands
tlio state of affairs.

The long standing controversy uotweci
some of the big agricultural Implement house
on South Mam street and the city cotinci
lias roachoa a point where the utgcnt de
itiands of the implement dealers canno
bo longer ignored. Neither the members o
the present council or the eiti/.cns cm
nlTord lo have the complaints of these
uig nouses ignored , especially since ti
agricultural Implement district is to bi
further enlarged by the building of sovcra
oilier largo buildings and the addition o
several more of the largest implement llrm
in the world. The complaint is the ctmdl
tlon of the paving on the last block of th
street. When the street was surfaced for
l tu ing the city engineer made an error and
got the lower end of the street a foot or
moro higher than the bloc ! : above it. This
loft Ihe water aland ing on n level with the
curbing all along the front of Deere , Wells it

spirited protests , succeeded in getting
the error partially corrected , but , only par
tially , and for the past eight years his com
pany has b ion a constant sufferer. Every
rain storm has damaged them to the extent
of hundreds of dollars , aggregating during
the years an amount many times larger than
tlio value of the paving. The basement of
their entire main building can only bo used
nt certain seasons of the year when it is
reasonably certain that no rains will occur.
At the present time the lower end of the
street Is about six inches Higher than the
surface of the paving along the front of their
building , and every little shower that causes
water to flow In the gutters lllls the street
to the level of the curbing and there it re
mains until it slowly soaks away , under

Mr. Wells was sadly surveying the ava-
laiiche of mud yesterday afternoon that thu
rain of tlio early morning had carried down ,
and deposited in front of his building.
"Wo were the nlonccr Implement house Kid

if wo had not located here it is doubtful If
any of these other big buildings would have
been erected. Wo came hero at an early
day , asked no bonus or assist

buildings and have paid promptly every

ropcatcd experiment In this city rtof
making water run up hill. It

The gamblers who wcro allowed to ply
their avocations open and . nbovo board
through an arrangement by which they wcro
to pay into the city treasurer $50 a month ,
fell over each other getting to the front with
their "donations" the first month , but it was
for the first month only. There were flvo at
first , and ono additional has opened out slnco.
So far this month only three men have paid
their "donation , " but all of the houses are
running just the same. It Is a fine that can
not be collected bylaw , and the gamblers are
no doubt taking advantage of this fact.
Some of the couucilmcn are so conscientious
that they will not lay any claim to this
money at all. City Treasurer Hector says
that il goes Into tliu general fund.
The school board Is of the opinion that it
should go Into thu tchool fund , and , while

night and day without liquidation for the

night force apply to the day force.
No olllcer is allowed to go into n saloon
when dressed iu uniform for the purpose of
drinking. Either on or off duty police ofllcors i
are looked upon as moral guardians of the i
peace and good order of the city.
All officers will have thirty minutes for
their lunch , both night and day. No ofllcer
is permitted to smoke while on duty.
Any ofllcer found Intoxicated while on duty
will bo suspended by the chief of police ,
pciidlnn an investigation by the mayor aud

WASHINGTON , July 18. It is reported
hero that Congressman Burrows of
Michigan will introduce a resolution
into the house as soon as the session is
fairly open to investigate tlio present
wo'rkings of the pension olllce , with par
ticular reference to the legality of cer
tain orders which have been made by
Secretary Smith and put into execution
by Commissioner Lochren. It is under
stood that Mr. Burroxvs takes the same
view of the action of the com
missioner of pensions , in suspending pen
sions under tlio act of 1S90 , that General
Alger did in an interview in Now York
a few days ago. Ho claims that after a
soldier has been examined in the legal
way and his pension granted , the com
missioner has no right to suspend him
from the rolls and reduce his pension , or
compel him to bo re-examined and go
through tlio form of again qualifying to
draw a pension.
The republicans hope to develop politi
cal capital from an investigation of the
present democratic policy of dealing
with the pensioners , and most of them
will support the Burrows resolution.
