Alderman Was Determined to

If there Is one thin that Alderman

MAYOR VIEWS THE PARKS.
Commissioners Hippie and Moore
Exhibit Their Labors and Needs
Colonel E. H. Kipple and T. J. Moore
of the board of park commissioners,
yesterday escorted Mayor and Mrs. Bal
ley through the three city parks, W rood
lawn, Nay Aug and Council, occupying
the entire afternoon with the trip.
The mayor spoke In the highest terms
of commendation of the work accom
plished by the commissioners with the
scarcity of funds which they had at
their disposal and promised to urge
upon councils the necessity of being
more liberal In dealing with the public
parks department of the city govern
ment. Although the appropriations so far
made have been barely large enough to
keep the parks free from rubbish, the
commissioners by careful management
have succeeded In making many Im
provements In the awy of beautifying
the parks and adding such little com
forts as benches, swings and the like.
Much disappointment Is generally ex
pressed through the failure of the swim
ming pond scheme, but It Is sincerely
hoped that thlB much craved boon will
materialize next spring.

Washington Avenue Property Owners
Want the Barber Asphalt Company
to Repair That Thoroughfare.
Property owners on North Washing
ton avenue between Gibson street and
Electric avenue will present a petition
to councils next Thursday night asking
that action be taken to remind the Bar
ber Asphalt company of the contract
made with the city when that portion
of the avenue was paved, agreeing to
keep the pavement In repair for five
County Commissioners 8. W. Roberts,
Giles Roberts and John Demuth were
asked yesterday afternoon to sign the
petition, but they refused for the reason
that the county made a special contract
for paving In front of the Jail.
The property owners allege In their
petition that the asphalt company has
not expended one cent toward keeping
the street repaired, and that it is in
urgent need of attention. If improve
ments are not made soon the five years
will have expired In which the com
pany is bound by the contract. If that
hapiens the city will be put to great
expense to do the work.

Eugene Huff, a big colored man to
young and comely white girl. Huff

Shedding an Officer Not
Afraid of Bullets.
Harry Linton, a 19-year-old colored
boy of Center street, got Into enough
trouble yesterday to keep him in hot
water for some time to come.
He was arrested during the afternoon
for stealing three razors and two clip
pers from his boarding-boss, James A.
Hrittlngham, also colored, who form

had disposed of some of the stolen
goods. Two of the clippers were recove

where he had pledged them for 50 cents,
and tho whereabouts of two of the
azors was also disclosed. As the youth
had made a full confession and was evi

LECTURED ON AARON BURR.
Brilliant Address Given by Colonel
Fairmun at Wood's College.
Colonel James M. Falrman lectured
before the faculty and students of
Wood's Business college lust night on
the life of Aaron Burr. His audience
was treated o a scholarly, eloquent
and instructive historical sketch ot the
man who was United States senator.
afterward vice-president of the United
States, and who came within one vote
of being chosen president of the United
Safes, and who died despised and
hated by his country.
Colonel Fair began with Burr at his
birth and followed his life throughout
all Its devlons stages. His three char
acteristics. Colonel Falrman said, were
his self assertion, arrogance, and his
uneasy ambition to overreach others.
His defeat for Governor of New York
was ascribed to Alexander Hamilton
and this brought on the duel which
ended In the latter's death at Wee-
Burr fled to England, from there to
Sweden, then to Germany and to
France, and nowhere could he escape
from the odium that his murderous
deed merited. He eventually returned
to America and died a wretched death
on Staten Island. President O. F. Wil
liams, on behalf of the college, ten
dered the speaker a vote of thanks.

Cosey & Kelly Brewing Co.

Headed by a band a procession of
over a dozen big brewery wagons, each
drawn by four horses and a string of
barouches containing attaches anil
friends of the firm, traversed all the

were banners and transnaraiiren which

UNKNOWN MAN DEAD
IN COUNTY JAIL
He Was Committed Last Tuesday as a
Vagrant at Taylor.
HE THEN GAVE AN ASSUMED NAME
Called Himself Thomas Deacon, but
It is Thought That His Right Name
Was Harvey Surgent, of Priceburg.
Efforts to Identify Him Have railed.
Body Still at the Jail.
One of the prisoners at the county jail
died yesterday morning at 2 o'clock.
He gave his name when he was commit
ted last Tuesday morning ae Thomas
Deacon, but it Is believed that his right
name is Harvey Surgent, and that he
has no relatives in this section except
a cousin named John Surgent, living
either at Dalton or Factoryvllle.
The dead man was sent to Jail for
twenty days by Justice of the Peace
William P. Griffiths, of Taylor, on the
general charge ot vagrancy. It appears
that he had been drinking heavily and
was picked up by the police of Taylor
Early Tuesday night he became sick
In his cell, and Jail Physician Jenkins
was called. The doctor attended him
regularly, and last night the man got
worse, and lapsed into a condition,
which ended in hisdeath at the hour
stated. Dr. Jenkins says that the cause
of death was heart failure, brought on
KNEW ALFRED SMITH.
Deputy Warden T. J. Price learned
from some of the prisoners that the
deceased admitted to them that he gave
an assumed name when he waa com
mitted and he said something about
being acquainted with Alfred Smith, of
Priceburg. Mr. Price sent a telephone
message to Mr. Smith yesterday, and
the latter came down to the Jail. He
could not positively identify him, but
after searching the dead man's clothes,
he said he thought he was Harvey
Surgent and he told thnt such a man
worked for him three days last week,
got paid on Saturday night, and then
proceeded to expend the money for
The county commissioners Instructed
Undertaker A. R. Raub to go to the
Jail yesterday and take charge ot the
remains. They lie In an Ice-box In the
Jail now, awaiting identification, and
unless some one comes to claim the
body today the commissioners will
make arrangements for Interment In
JOHN SURGENT SAW HIM.
John 8irgent,,of Throop, called at the
Jail last night under the Impression that
the deceased was his brother, but after
a look In the ice box he failed to rec
ognize the rigid features. Then he
looked at the clothes the man wore, and
was still unable to decide that it' was
his brother. Tho last he saw of his
brother, Harvey, was three weeks ago,
and then he wore different clothes to
the suit the dead man hod on; and his
brother had a heavy dark moustache,
while the dead man has a short mous
tache, and it has turned partly gray.
Surgent decided to come down again
this morning and have Undertaker
Raub remove the body from the Ice
box in order that a better look may be
obtained than can be got from peering
down Into the box.
The decrlptlon taken of the deceased
when he was committed and as it Is re
corded In the Jail register Is that he
was 40 years old; of light complexion;
hair brown, streaked with gray; that
he wore a No. 8 shoe; was 5 feet, 9 and
one-half Inches tall; weighed 169
pounds, and was a carpenter by occupa
tion. ACADEMY WAS CROWDED.
