Condition of Jive Alarm System
Comes in for a Share of Attention.
Fletcher "Cuts" In.
Select t'OUIICll met ill Special Session
last night ami transacted considerable
business in an hour's time. The meet
ing was called to order at S o'clock.
All members but Battle were in their
chairs. In regard to the suit brought
against the city by a man named
Golden who was Injured by fulling on
a sidewalk, council placed the matter
in the hands of tho judiciary commit
tec with power to act in conjunction
with tho committee from common
council and the city solicitor toward
defending tho case. From tho commit
t"e tho requisition of the Columbia
Hose company for .100 fent of hose was
received with an amendment which
read that 0o feet be purchased
and evortly divided anions Hie
two companies. Tho report was
received. File of common coun
cil No. 10 being an ordinance for
the erection of an incandescent light
on Garfield avenue passed second and
ilnal reading. File of common coun
cil Xo. S, an ordinance for the erec
tion of an incandescent light at the
intersection of Canaan and r.elmont
streets, passed llrst and second read
ings. Tho light, lire and water com
mittee also reported favorable on the
resolution to have the fire alarm keys
placed in boxes rjetir the lire alarm
boxes, tho glass in tho front of the
box to be broken in case of fire and
the key taken out. Fletcher opposed
the resolution In its present form but
stated that he would favor it should
it read in the central city and not on
all parts of the elty.
The l-eimrl of the committee was re
ceived, Fletcher alone voting no. A
number of bills were received from
common council and read. Fletcher
called Thompson to tho chair and took
the floor. Fletcher I notice a bill
turning in every month for the care
of the lire alarm system. The bill Is
for $10 per month, or $ll!0 a year. It is
a question what is being done to earn
this money. Tho system lias b?en out
uf order for six months; in fact evir
since tho semi-centennial. Wo are be
ing abused constantly in the paper for
not having tho linn alarm system in
good order, I supposed wo had a man
competent enough to keep It in repair.
AVe have a man who Is supposed to
keep It In order and If lie iloes not do
It he Is not doing his duly. 1 want to
call Ihu altenUon of the lire, light and
water committee to the shapo our sys
tem Is in at present. There Is a box In
tho central part of the city which lias
rung in wiong alarms three times. I
do not think It necessary to turn In
an alarm every day. Pel haps It would
be a good Idea to advertise for bids for
a man to take charge of tho system,
Thompson agreed with Fletcher but
thought that a resolution would bo bet
ter than giving It to a committee,
IJavis agreed with Fletcher In that ihe
system was out of order and thought
It should hi cNumlnml at once. The
bills were then read and the bill for
taking euro of the lire alarm s-ystem,
tho (.treat department pay roll and tho
bill for special policemen. Those bills
were referred back to the llnanco com
mittee. Tho following resolutions from
tho common council were concurred In:
Providing for the placing of a new
JlK'tpn of lloor In tho Mitchell Hose
Jinup!;, and tho transferring of $t;oo In

THE NEW COAL YARD.
Rently for Construction Work on
tho D. nnd H. Pockets on Salem
Tile construction Work will he com-luencod-lll
a few days, It Is exp6ctod,
on the new retail coal storage tiuikst
of the JJclnware and Hudson com
pany, which are to. bo erected on the
site lately cleared at the foot of Hiileni
Tho site, which was cleared of a big
bank of culm and coal, after a prodig
ious amount of shoveling and hauling,
has been ready Tor the tanks for over
a week, and the construction work
would probably have been slurted be
fore but for tho condition of the
ground after the recent snow-falls.
A gang of men Is now at work on
the old canal bed, where the coal will
he dumped and from whence It will he
carried, by means of conveyors and
dumped Into the tanks.
There will be two circular tanks,
built on the principle of the water
tank in vogue among tho railroads.
The plans compiehend three tanks, but
the Intention now is to erect only two;
tile third will soon follow if the two
prove the success that Is expected. The
Idea Is somewhat or an experiment,
and tho purpose Is not to go Into It too
deeply until the scheme Is proven a
The tanks vi III have solid founda
tions of masonry, as will bo neces
sary, with the, thousand or more tons
they v. Ill haVo to support. The ma
sonry will be over a dozen feet high.
The tanks will 10 about fifty feet In
diameter and will -have a capacity of
one thousand tons each. The features
of tho tanks will be economy of room
and greater facility In loading tho
wagons Unit may come to the coal
LUMBER HAS ARRIVED.
Lumber for the Erection of Chutes
at No. 1 Mines Arrives Mines
May Be Working in Ten Dnys.
The lumber for the erection of chutes
to replace tho screen rooms, which
were burned down recently at the Xo.
1 mines, arrived yesterday, and the
work of erecting tho chutes will bo
started at once. A sulliciont number
of men will be put at work on tho
erection of the now structure to have
it ready for operation In ten days,
when the two mines, Xos. 1 and ;!,
which have been idle since tho fire,
will bo again started. The lumber has
been expected dally and the ruins of
the burned breaker had been cleared
away some time, in preparation for its
arrivals. Owing to delays, the lum
ber did not arrive until yesterday, sev
eral days after It was expected. The
new chutes will bo a commodious
structure and will be equipped with
machinery capable of handling the
supply from the two mines. One sec
tion' Of the chutes' will be used for
lump coal and tho other part for pre
paring coal for the Coalbrook breaker.
The decision of the company to erect
the chutes, does away with the rumor
that a modern breaker would bo
erected on the ruins of the lire. It is
probable, though, that a larger breaker
will be erected in the near future lo
replace the present l'owderly mines
breaker. Coal from Xos. 1 and J
mines, Hhlili Could nol be handled In
the Ooalhreok breaker, would then be
taken to the now breaker. Such a
scheme could not Uelp hut mean a big
boom for the miners, as at present

Mr. Watt was Intending to erect a large

to persons living on tho poor board will
be for necessaries of life and nothing

to death. Was very nervous and
across the room. . otutf weighed ninety pounds when i commenced
taking these medicines six years ago; I now weigh one hundred and

" I am just as well now as I was when I came into the world,"
rites Mrs. P. A. Graham, of 017 IJacc Street, Now Orleans, La,
"I will put it at that any way for I cannot remember seeing a well
day since I became a woman "(25 years ago), until six months ago
when I began the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and
' Golden Medical Discovery ' and ' Pleasant Pellets.' They are the best
medicines on earth made for women and their complaints, no matter
what the disease may be, even if called incurable by doctors. I was
treated by several country physicians and also had "some of the best
city physicians prescribe for me. They all said my ease was incurable,
being a chronio disease of long standing. I had been sick for eight
years, with female weakness and nervous and general debility, until
six months ago, I commenced with Dr. R. V. Pierce's inedicine and it
brought me from ninety pounds lo one hundred and thirty-live."
QuretS Without an Operation.
"October 12Lh, 1S98, I wrote you for the first time," says Mrs.
Alice E. Shipley, of West Point, Hardin Co., Ky. " "Was very ill,
confined to my bed most of the time ; had no appetite ; pains in left
ovarv ; could not rest only on one side, without suffering most excru
ciating pains. Was a perfect wreck physically. I underwent an ex
amination by one of the most prominent physicians of Louisville, Ky.
lie pronounced my case tumor of the stomach, and advised mo to
return in two weeks and .have an operation performed. My husband
had such a dread of 'the knife' that he prevailed on me to try Dr.
Pierce's medicines. I took seven bottles of 'Favorite Prescription,'
and two vials of 'Pellets,' which cured me of constipation. Have not
taken any medicine since the last of February. I. now attend to all my
housework cook, wash, iron and sew for a family of six. Many have
been advised by mo to try your treatment, and are greatly benefited."
'"Favorite Prescription'9 ansi Maternity
"I will endeavor to tell von of the many benefits 1 have derived
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. b, K
Medicine Lodire. Barber Co., Kans. "In the fall of
ISO!), f was expecting to become a mother, and suffered terribly with
pains in the bank of head ; in fact, I ached all over. Suffered with
awful bearing-down pains; was threatened for weeks with mishap.
A ladv friend told me to use Dr. Pierce's medicines. She had taken
thorn "and felt like a new woman. I began using the 'Favorite Pre
scription,' and took four bottles before my baby came and two after
wards. 1 suffered almost death with my other two children, but hardly
realized that I was sick when this baby was born, and she weighed
twelve and one-quarter pounds. She is now eleven months old,and
has never known an hour's sickness; at present she weighs thirty
seven pounds. I owe it all to Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription."
