the committee on Are and light.

track from Fifteenth street across Ninth ! and Gillespie those of the Illinois Central,
avenue to connect with the 'tracks of the Just outside the city limits and nearly
Burlington road at Eighth avenue.- The
ordinance was passed under suspension of
the rules to Its second reading and re
ferred to the committee oT the whole.
While discussing this proposed ordinance
Mr. Saunders was asked by a member of
the council why the Great Weatern had
neglected to comply with the Instructions
of the city council relative to placing an
arc light over Its crossings cm Main street
and Ninth avenue. Mr. Saunders In reply
treated the councllmen to a lengthy dis
sertation on the danger arising from such j
lights at railroad crossings. Arc lights
at railroad crossings, he Insisted, made
the crossings all the more dangerous, aa
they blinded the engineers so that they
could not distinguish any obstruction on
the track when approaching crossings so
lighted. Despite the eloquence of the
Great Western's attorney, It waa evident
that the members of the council were. In
clined to .take his assertions with a good
sited grain of salt.

fire department, thinks the city is Indebted

the fire department was being troubled by

alarms the city council by resolution offered
a reward of $50 for the a rest and convic

Nicholson, shortly after the reward waa

MRS. TOLLMAN'S AMAILAXT ESCAPE
Officers Take Two Tim Shootlngr at
Him bat Miss.
At an early hour yesterday morning De
tectives Wilson and Richardson of the
police force fought a platol duel with a
negro, suspected of being the one who at
tempted a criminal assault on Mrs. E. Toll
man of this city late Sunday night at the
home of her father, Frank Covalt, near
. Word of the assault reached the police
department shortly after midnight with the
Information .that the negro was supposed
opposite Gilbert lake. Wilson encountered
a negro and accosted him. Without a word
of reply the negro drew a revolver and
fired point blank at the officer, but the shot
went wild. The negro then Jumped from
the track Into the tall weeds along the
right-of-way. Officer Wilson emptied his
revolver at the retreating figure, but failed
to hit the fellow, who succeeded In making
his escape through the weeds.
Shortly before I o'clock Detective Rich
ardson came upon a negro on Washington
avenue at -the corner of Benton street.
When the officer called on him to halt, the
negro at once opened fire and made a-dash
for Indian creek. Richardson fired several
shots after the fellow, but without result,
and he succeeded In making his escspe.
The negro met by Officer Richardson Is
believed to have been the same one who
made his escape from Detective Wilson na
he had had about sufficient time to reach
the part of the city where Richardson en
Mrs. Tollman, who lives on Fourth street,
was visiting her parents at Crescent City
Sunday. A number of friends were spend
ing the evening there and It waa late when
they left. Before retiring for the night
Mrs. Tollman went Into the yard to get
some water from the well. As she reached
the well she was eel led by a. man who at
tempted to throw her to the ground. Mrs.
Tollman struggled desperately. Her cloth
ing waa almost entirely torn from her In
the struggle and her strength was fast
giving away when . her father, attracted
by her screams, rushed out of the house
to her assistance. The brute, seeing he was
foiled, flung Mrs. Tollman from him and
made Me escape In the darkness.

general appropriations. Especially has
there been an Increase In the fee. paid
under the inheritance tax law, two estatea
In thl city having paid to the state
treasurer $t'AO00. In the auditor's and secre
tary of state'a offices the fees hav alao
very greatly .Increased. The .legislature
fixed the amount of money to be raised by
taxation at $2,ono.ono and ordered the execu
tive council to fix the levy at such a figure
that that amount would be raised. Be
cause of this Increase In the revenue to the
state from the railroads, and In fees to the
state offices, which the legislature did not
have knowledge of, the council Is enabled
to fix the levy lower than It baa been for
the past several yeara. .
