1 I . THE SALT LAKE TIMES. WEDNESDAY, JULY 16, 1890. last evening, ami the matter was re-ferred to the committee on streets. The committee should at the very next meeting report iu favor of letting the contract if the bid is considered a rea-sonable one. Tho absence of street signs is simply a disgrace to a city of 50,000 people. t Some men who distinguish them-selves in college are never heard of again.

Kansas Crrr raised a great hue and cry about its census iigures. An un-official recount lias just been concluded, and it does not materially change the federal census figures, which were about 135,000. The Kansas City Jour-nal nevertheless claims a mnch larger population. It says: "The new di-rectory contains exclusive of linn titles, etc., 64,150 names. Using the multiple 2j this indicates a population of NJO.IJSJO; or with the multiple 2i, a population of 14t,3ol. Tho probable population is about 150,000." AFTER THE ELECTION. Comments Made Hy the Herald are Shown to Be Groundless. ' This," said P. L. Williams, indi-cating a column of generalities concern-ing election frauds published in the Herald this morning, "is the usual line of defeat taken by the Mormons. They charge everything but fail to give any-thing specific. So far as I am con-cerned, I was present for a time at the Fourth precinct where they say at-tempts were made to bring in illegal voters, but I pledge my word that noth-ing of the sort was done with my cog-nizance, nor do I now know of any such thing having been done. They can easily settle Hie matter by contesting. Hut it is tho policy adopted by them. At tho last election they claimed that none of us were legally elected. Now they come down to one aud say that I was not chosen by proper votes. I feel gratified at their fall from all to one. The editorial side of the paper itself seems to doubt the truth of the repor-tori-story for it docs not back it up." "Every point tliey have attempted to take," observed H.'S. JkCallum, chair-man of the Liberal county committee, "is false. The Liberals did nothing of tlie sort. The Peoples' party may have done so but we did not, for by our can vas wo saw the want was ours. Y e didn't need lodo fraudulent work. "There was one judge there, an old Mormon named Murdock, who sought to intimidate every man who looked like a Liberal who appeared. They knew nothiug about conducting a cam-paign properly so he challenged every-body. He tried to usurp the functions of all tho other judges. "If they can offer a shadow of reason to believe that any man voted illegally we will assist to prosecute him. There was none of it done. They are just cry-ing because they were beaten. And so far as Sergeant Currari is concerned, I will stako my word that he did nothing in the way of passing Liberal or any other tickets, llo was simply attend-ing to his duties as an ollicer all day. The Liberals have a majority here now, although all our people did not turn out, and we do not need to resort to fraud." The vote will bo canvassed tomorrow night.

The shutting down of so many mills in New England, together with the disturbing influences of proposed tariff legislation, has been effective in lower-ing the amount of sales to 1.231,000 pounds domestic, and 821,000 pounds foreign wools. Michigan, territory and pulled wools partake of the general dullness and inactivity, but Texas sup-plies have arrived in liberal amounts, though tho sales have been small. Ohio manufacturers arc said to have been op-erating a litllo more freely, most at 80 cents for fine grades. American compe-tition at the London wool sales is strong, maintaining about the same prices as at the last auction sales. CLIPPED AND CONDENSED. A Held of wild oats near Santa Maria, CaL, stands six feet two inches high.. A young woman at Madison, Ind., being frightened, screamed loudly and dislocated her jaw. A surveying party has discovered that one of the Hudson's Bay Com-pany's stations is on American terri-tory. Some enterprising southern men pro-pose to give an exposition of Southern products in some northern city. A hungry horse tied in front of a dry goods store at Norristown, Pa., de-voured part of a box of cheap straw bats. Tons of soft coal have beon washed ashore at St. Simons, Ga. It is the gen-eral belief that a vessel went down near the island. It is said that fair hair is rapidly dis-appearing in tho British Isles and that the darkening of hair is more marked in males than females. The Portugese nation is one of the most illiterate in Europe, the illiterate inhabitants being officially stated at 82 per cent of the whole. A swarm of butterflies halted near Placerville, Cal., the other day, and for a time they were, so thick about the springs and most places that teamsters couldn't see their lenders. A traveler in Japan writes that the Japanese pay more attention to personal cleanliness than any other people in the world. High aud low bathe all over at least once a day and sometimes oftener. . Photographs - of seventy-eigh- t old couples aud the same number of pictures of brothers and sisters of a similar age are said to show that the former are more like one another in appearance than the brothers and sisters. Three convicts in the county jail at Leesburg, Ga., under sentence of the criminal cpurt, burned holes through the floor of the jail and dug under the sido walls. They made good their es-cape, and at last' accounts were still at large. Owing to the capitalists from the North there has set iu era of house restoration in Virginia. Old southern mansions, reduced to a mass of ruins arc propped up, repainted and thoroughly restored and surrounded by elaborate pleasure grounds. A Virginia woman who has had u children has been found by the census man, say an exchange. Her name is Martha Gray, and her record is thus given: Six "triplets, eighteen; six twins, twelve; seven singles, seven; total, thirty-seve- children. A bridal couple in Springfield, Mass., were so anxious to avoid the curious glances of the neighbors on the house that they climbed over the back yard fence, and, passing through the adjoin-ing yard, entered the carriage, which was waiting on the next street. A tramp whose intellectual caliber was far above his profession was re-cently found at Bangor, Me. His only baggage was a small but choice collec-tion of books, including. "The Con-fessions of Jean Jacques Rouseau," the works of Balzac,; Ihimas, a copy of Shakespeare and the Iliad. CITY CIRCULATION.

Scliool Trustee Toughs on Bender. Park City, July 10. Special cor-respondence. Some of the notorious made things lively in town last night. They forced, their way into Mr. Krause's saloon and made free with his whisky and cigars, and broke several lights of glass out of the door. It is re-ported also that they made a similar raid on John P. Kelley's saloon. No arrests have been made. This kind of work should be stopped at once and the prosecuting attorney should take this in hand and make an example of the peace disturbers. The gas generator in the Marsacmill will be ready for operation in a few days. This is a new experiment in ore roasting aud if it proves to be a success it will bo a great saving in fuel. Here-tofore it has taken fourteen cords of wood every twenty-fou- r hours to run the Stetidefelt furnace. This gas gen-erator will do away with all this con-sumption of woodand it is claimed to supply a more steady heat for the ore. The Mnrsac mill has been experiment-ing ever since it began work. It was the first to make a success of the Russell-l-eaching process and has worked ores by this process from nearly all over the world. Mr. Stetidefelt, in-ventor of the furnaces is iu Park City superintending tho work. Charley Allen was seen running down the street with his hat in one hand and a box of cigars in the other. As he passed he was heard to exclaim: "It's a boy; weighs nine pounds and a half. Mother and child doing well, and the father is quite happy." Rev. Mr. Putnam came to Park City and went to Brighton yesterday. Mr. J. A. Collingwood, forman of the McHenry mine, made a Hying trip to Ziou yesterday.

The announcement that has licen made that the plumbers' strike has been settled is premature, and is not grounded on truth. A committee from the plumbers uuion informed The Times this morning that the strike is no nearer settlement than upon the day when the sixty-eigh- t men em-ployed at the different shops ir.ade their demands of a day for eight hours work. Two of the strikers returned to work for I). James at the old scale of 4, but it is thought they will not con-tinue at this scale. TDK I.lllKRtL COUNTY CONVENTION. The next thing on tho political pro-gramme is the Liberal county conven-tion for tho nomination of county off-icers. It is conceded that the Liberals have it within their power to win tho election, and therefore somo of them conclude tbat a nomination is equiva-lent to election. This may be true in regard to nominees who have a spotless record and are personally popular, But it is not a correct conclusion as to bad nominees. The Liberals should exercise the greatest care in making their nomina-tions. The ticket should be made up of only the very best men. No man who would be a drag to the ticket should be allowed to come before the convention as a candi-date. If such a person insists upon seeking ollioo at this time he must be summarily set down upon. The ollices to bo tilled are nearly all positions of great trust aud some profit, aud hence the holders of such places should be well known men of irreproachable character aud undoubted responsibility in order to gain the conlidence of the people. We would also suggest that men of very recent residence be given no office. Men who seek positions of trust should be residents of a community long enough to prove their character. Thero will, of course, bo a number of very fresh aspirants for ofiice, but the Liberal leaders should beware of too much freshness. There are scores of good men who have lived here several years and who are well known nieu who have for years fought gallantly for the advancement of tho Liberal cause without reward, and some of these citi.ens are entitled, above all others, to oftiees if they ask for them. The hottest day of the season will be flection day in August. Commkhcial street is soon to be vaved. Asphalt is the material selected. Thk numerous candidates for the county offices are now doing a great deal of "irrigation." I GO Ml tiAlT. I go my xlt. with uu'er a whine Or murmurous tone at that or this Deep burying In this heart of mine Regret for joys that I may miss Whether In paths of woe or bliss I go my gait. I go my gait, be smile or frown My portion on life's thoroughfare, Upward look and never down: A smllng face I choone to wear As hand In hand, sometimes with care, I go my gait. I go my gait, all sure of this Who pushed steadily ahead Must gain at last some goal of bliss, If hungry will at last be fed. With dauntless heart and dauntless tread 1 go my gait. By her marriage to Stanley. Miss Tennant has won the title of Dorothy I, Queen of the Congo. The recent Wyoming earthquake was simply a congratulatory shako upon admission to statehood. "Two Soldiers," a serial story by Capt. Charles King, will be begun in next Saturday's Times. " Ake we ever to hear anythiug more regarding an appropriation for the new postofllco building in Salt Lake; The Herald cries fraud in regard to the recent school election. Nobody ex-pected anything else Irom that paper. The school election in Ogdon re-sulted iu favor of the Liberals. Tho People's party elected only one candi-date. '' The enthusiasm with which Foraker was received by tho Ohio republican couvention shows that the distinguished gentleman is still in the ring. . THE CHARUK8 Mf FKAUD. The Herald charges that the Liberals practiced fraud in the school election. It is tho same old cry that has been sot up every time tho Liberals have won a victory It is the Herald's usual way of explaining defeat to tho People's party, and is taken for just what it Is worth simply nothing. The fact is that the Liberals have a sullicient majority to get along without practicing frauds, evn if they were so incliued. If there wero any frauds tho Liberal leaders say they know nothing about them, and furthermore that they will assist iu prosecuting any persons who can bo shown to have done any crooked work. In tha February election the" Herald claimed that all of tho Liberals were illegally elected. In the school elec-tion, however, it claims that only oue of tho Liberals was elected in an ille-gal manner. This is indeed a great im-provement, aud shows that the Liberals are becoming inoro honest. This is a big admission on the part of the Her-ald, and is really appreciated. . . Tho fact is that in the Fourth ward tho Liberals can carry t he election in August by about seventy majority. THE BURGESS BENEFIT. It Was a Success in Every Respect Over 8000 Was Kealized. . . The benoljt r. W. J. Burgess at the Salt Lake theater last night was a success financially as well as every other way, over $600 being realized by it. The audience was a fashionable one and the programme was excellent. It was so varied that the audience forgot that the evening was hot aud sultry. The overture under tho direction of Prof. Kent was liuely rendered. The quartette, PJgoletto, by Misses Thomas and Dean, and Messrs. Goddart and Easton, was an artistic effort and could not have been improved. Tho "Chariot Race" from Ben Hur by Mrs. Laura Tisdale deserves more than ordinary praise. "Our Boarding Houso" kept the audience roaring for an hour. Mr. Leonard Grover, jr., es-tablished himself as a clever comedian. Mr. Wells carried his part wjth his usual grace, while Mr. Spencer exhibi-ted a very good French accent. Of the ladies, Miss Lislo Leigh exhibited a vast amount of womanly sweetness which won for her the admiration of all pre-sent, while Miss Edith Clawson cap-tured a deal of applause. Mr. Evans as Eligible was worthy of mention. The overture "La Gazza Ladve" by tho double orchestra, under the direc-tion of Prof. Wioho, followed. Mrs. Tisdale's interpretation of "Poetic Ideals" left nothing to be desired, and the Toreador song from Carmen by Sig. Eurico Campobello was so much appreciated by the audience that he was compelled to sing again. At close of the second overture Mr. Glen Miller read a letter from Mr. Bur-gess, iu which he thanked the people of Salt Lake for the generous favors be-stowed upon him, tho manager of the theater and his assistants, who furnish-ed the house and their services, and to tho press of the city which lent its warm voice iu promoting the benefit. i;taii notes. , , ..... It is impossible to give babies away in Ogden. "Education vs. Inspiration" was a timely transparency in the Ogden Lib-eral parade last Saturday. A Garlield beach observer says that "it isn't always the prettiest girl that wears the neatest bathing suit." "Hold-ups,- " remarks the Ogden Standard in its terse and abbreviated way, "are becoming too frequent for comfort." "Never before," says a sauguiue ex-change, "did a dark cloud contain such a lining of silver as now. Partial free coinago did it." "What makes tho average man glad he is alive, facetiously says an Ogden exchange, is the fact that milk shakes only cost a nickel a piece." During their hours of watchfulness the Ogden police this mouth succeeded in arresting one hundred and twenty-thre- e plain and gilt-edge- criminals. Tho extreme largeness of the red ant this season gives rise to the belief that the pleasures of picnic parties will be greater and more numerous than ever. There is really no tangible objection to violent plaid trousers, says tho San Tete Growler, except they keep ono constantly wondering whose move it is; GusVogus, au Ogden saloonkeeper who evidently failed to "fix" the copper on his block, paid a line of $50 for keep-ing open his saloon on tho day of rest. "We think t'lat Bill Nye," says a ter-ritorial exchange, whoso editor knows humor when he sees it, "is getting worse all the time. If us follows run such rot as original matter as the stuff Nye signs his name to, we would lose our subscribers, and justly, too." It,was quite a compliment to Judge rowers to be called upon to deliver an address to the old folks. He did great credit to himself and the occasion. Fakmeks all over the country are this year taking a very active part in politics, nnd in many states they are putting an independent ticket in the lieki. The Minnesota Farmers' alliance has just fallen into line. , There is somo considerable Some sections are sprinkled too much and others too little. There should be au equitable distribution of the water. The contractor should give his drivers instructions to that effect. TiiEitE are three distinguished who are drawing larger pen-sions than any union soldier. They aro Generals Beauregard, Early and Mosby. The two first are pensioned at about $10,000 a year, by the Louisiana lottery, and the latter by the Mexican . lottery at Juarez, at about tho same sum. NATURAL OAS. Mr. John Johnson, who has for some time been furnishiug natural gas to three houses from a gas well Avhich he accidentally discovered while diggiug for water, proposes to ask the city council for a franchise to pipe the streets. Ho claims that he can secure $100,000 of eastern capital to back tho enterprise. Mr. Johnson wants a fran-chise for twenty-liv- e years, tho first ten years of which shall bo exclusive No ono will objestto giving Mr. Johnson a franchise, but if it is made nt all exclu-sive, there will be stormy opposition to it. An exclusive franchise of auy ua-tur- e is contrary to public policy, aud we don't believe the council can grant any such franchise. If wo have natural gas iu this vici-nityand ther arc strong iudicatious that wo have the field should be open to any oue who wishes to invest money iu prospecting for it. A mouopoly in natural gas should not be tolerated for a moment. COLORADO NOTES. Early harvest apples are ripening at Canyon City. There is an active demand for houses to vent at Lowland. Tho llico News says that place wants a church, and wants it bad. Tlie number of children of school ago in Las Animus county is 4,?S;l. An ice manufacturing company has been orgaui.ed at Colorado Spriugs. Tho money order business of the Greeley postoflice amounts to $,0,000 a year. Tho Star reports ripe peaches coming into tho Grand Junction market from Grand valley. Tho Douglas County News wauls to run Hon. P. W. O linen for tho legisla-ture again this fall. Thomas U. Manning, of Fremont county, declines to again take the des iterate chauces of election to tho legis- lature on the democratic ticket. There has been a growing tendency of late on the part of many saloon-keepers, says the Denver Republican, to either dodge or openly disregard the Sunday closing law. The raspberry season is now "on" in Colorado, and mint juleps are just com-ing iu. There is no reason whv the average (Jjlorado taxpayer ueed be un-happy. The Greeley Tribune reports that the Greeley and Lovoland ditch is now urn-Hill- s' a pretty irood supply of water, and that many of ihe crops which were thought to be seriously injured are coin-inj- out in good conditiou, The Tliuidad News has this piece ofj livo stock information: "Antonio Solas lias been shipping from Kl Moro 2T.IHK) head of sheep to the South park. Oue huudi ed and thirty-si- double decked cars have already been sent, and prob-ably thirty moro" will be needed. There is something radically wrong in the method of letting sidewalk con-tracts when property owners have no choice 'iu the matter of material. A radical reform is needed. The people demand that several different kinds of specifications be adopted, so that there can be a choice made by the properly owners. MARVELOUS FRKAK OF NATl'KE. The Child That Was Horn to L. W. Hat-Hvld- 's Wire. Wis amac, Ind., July 1(5. Four weeks ago tonight Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Hat-field had born unto them a pair of twins, or a double child that presents a freak in nature moio peculiar than Jones' babies. Mr. Hatfield is a hardware merchant of this place, and he and his wife are prominent members of society. With the permission of Mr. Hatfield the attending physician, Mr. George W. Thompson, of this place was seen, when it was found that tho child is a human monstrosity. It is a pair of boy babies whose aggregate weight at the time of birth was seven pounds. One child is perfect in every respect, while tho second is without a head ami without an arm. His lower limbs, body and left arm are perfect, but tho left hand is without a little finger. Its right arm is merely a rudi-mentary growth about three inches in length, with a nail on the end of it. and resembles in appearauee an index finger. Both childreu aro well and hearty and seem to be growing and de-veloping as naturally as if but oue chilli. . They are attached to each other by a fleshy union aliout three inches iu length on" the left side. Probably the greatest peculiarity is the fact that each child is dependent upou aud subsists from nourishment taken by the perfect child. ,At the preseut time Itie parents absolutely refuse to allow any person to see the babies. j THIS DATE IX HISTOKV-- JI I.V lt. lOM-Af- ler the battle ot Marston Moor, York, England, be-came a place ot meeting for parliament. 1647 Mosanlello (Thomas Asan-iello- ), a tUhermau of Naples, having headed an Insurrec-tion in June, was assas-sinated by his own followers , Intoxicated with their sue-- - uscovs- - 1841Tue Chinese palJ England ' a ransom ot 86.000,00): British troops eradi-ated Canton and British trade resumed. 1650 Margaret Fuller (Countess D'Ossoli), Amer-ii'd-authoress, shipwrecked and drowned. 1S61 Gen.
