at the recent caucus In that township.
On the night of the caucus rfe learned
that the ollk'ft was not vacant and

"Doric" sends a Kranhle description
of the caucus and humorously relates
how ho had the pleasure Of voting for

they could not understand each tither.
J raised my voice tin crescendo and

SYSTEM OF STREETS
IS NOW ASSURED
Common Council, at Its Meeting
Last Night. Conctus in the Reso
lution from Select Council Direct
ing the City Engineer to Prepare
a Sketch of the Streets, to Num
ber Houses and Change Numbers
That Are Confusing Other Mat
ters of Common Council.
Common council, by Us action last
night, assured the system of streets
and house-numbering which has been
patiently awaited to remove tho dis
crimination which existed in the mat
ter of postal service.
The action' which assured this sys
tem was the adoption of tho resolu
tion thai, ctinlo over ft out select coun
cil several weeks ego, but which was
sent to committee for some undiscov
ered reason. It slumbered there until
awakened last night by the clamor for
its passage that canto from all sides.
Last night It was called up by .Mr.
Xealon, who made it most commendable
speech, though it was brief. In favor
ot council adopting It forthwith. There
was a refreshing response ou tho part
of every member nnd Its passage went
through with, a rush and with the
hearty approval of all.
Tho resolution is the one introduced
4n select council by. Chairman Flet
cher, of thut body. It directs the city
uglneer to prepare a rough sketch of
the streets, nvontfs and alleys of tho
city; to give names to those which havo
not that dignity to number all un
numbered houses 'and to make tho
necessary changes where there are du
plicate numbers anil numbers that me
In passing, The Tribune wishes to
modestly state that this system of
snoots and house-numbering has been
vigorously and perseveringly urged
through its columns since early last
The City's Fund's Ebbing.
Council was Informed last night,
through recommendations of Control
ler Wheeler, that city funds are de
cidedly low. In bis recommendations
for certain transfer. he showed that
the bonded' debt fund, tho icgular po
lice fund, the fund for bridges, the
fund for cleaning paved streets and
the fund providing for tho payment of
city assessors, were either exhausted
or that only a few dollars remained.
To moot the dellclencies that existed,
ami those which were bound to oc
cur soon, he suggested tho following
transfers: $100 from the appropriation
for wa tor rent, to the bonded debt fund;
MOO from tho appropriation for gas to
the fund for paying city assessors; $10')
from water rent to appropriation for
cleaning paved streets; $'M from water
rent to regular police fund, This
mode $.100 that was scooped from the
water rent fund. The recommenda
tions of the controller were adopted.
It Is believed that there will be no
more transfers necessary.
A list of exonerations from City
Treasurer Connor, unioiintlng to Sl'.OOO,
which was attached to resolution
from select council that recommended
Us approval, was laid aside until the
next meeting, as there was some ones
tlon as to the proper committee of tho
other council having noted on It,
A resolution, by AY. II. Masters, was
iniopieu, exonerating tho Helmont
Street .Methodist Hplfcopal chapel from

Contest in the Fourth Ward tlto Only
Incident of the Afternoon.
Tho Democratic primaries took place
yesterday afternoon, between l nnd 7
o'clock. With tho exception of the
Fourth word, there was nothing stir
ring, in this ward, tho contest wits be
tween Select Councilman John F. Mun
ition and Will F. T.ofltts, who contested
his nomination. It was a lively contest,
resulting In tt victory for Munition, Who
captured live of tho six delegates. Mun
ition's delegated tiro Mark Moruii, James
Ilurretl, First district; Dudley .Gordon,
Thomas Moran, Second district: Mark
Hurl, Third district Juntos Toolnn,
Third district, was named for Lotttis.
An stated before, there were no con
tests In nny of tho other districts anil
till of the delegates will go Into tho con
vention, It seems certain, pledged to
City Treasurer Connor for his re-noml-natlon.
Tills gives Mr. Connor the
power to control the convention, and, if
he olectKJSto swing them for the candi
dates of his choice for tho other ofllces.
O'Neill nnd Wheeler, Probabls'.
As'indleated In The Tribune yester
day, Hon. James 4. O'Neill will bo
placed in nomination for mayor at tho
Democratic convention on Wednesday
night, unless, well, unless he decides to
move out of the city before spring,
which is not oven dreamed of.
Tho nominee for controller, it now
appears, will hardly bo John Drldgett,
as was indicated in Tho Tribune yes
terday. Willie there is not the positive
certulnty In this Instance ns In the
nomination for mayor, it is pretty well
settled that the nominee will bo some
one besides Mr. Uridgett. A shrewd
guess' would be John F. Wheeler, who
Is now occupying that olllee. Mr.
Wheeler has not como forward for n
re-nomlnntiou, but tho knowing ones
pitch on him. as the Jessup parliamen
tarian would say, as the one most ac
ceptable for tho party's success.

"Dijar Mrs. Pin-khan : I feel that words arc but feeble to
express a heart's gratitude, when there is so much to be thankful for
as I have. I suffered with womb trouble for live years, and our
family physician said an operation was needed ; but I dreaded it, and
reading of Lyilia E. Pinkham's A'effetable Compound one
day I decided to give it a trial first. To my great joy I found that after
four months' treatment I was strong and well; I experienced no pain or
trouble, and the Compound built up my entire system. I shall
always bless the day I started to take your medicine ; it proved my
greatest 'good." Miss Sophie Bonham, 281 Oak St., Chicago, 111.
