severest terms the false and foolish act of the ewspaper reporter who caused such reports to be published and w circulated We brand as false in whole and n part each and every statement to the effect that this Council at any time passed drastic or any resolution or ordinance in any way pertaining to the fuel situation or the remedy therefor Pretty warm eh But gentlemen of the City Council when Mr DeHaven went before you on Monday Feb 4 the night of the regular monthly meet ing rf the Council and stated that the cos Situation was serious and that he ould use strenuous methods if neces ary to get it if the Council would back lira up did not you say Go ahead ve are behind you If you did not take that statement why did you ause to be stricken from the above esolutions when it came to a vote sections to the effect that the Council deplores the action of the City Marshal by taking it upon himself without any uthority from this body in holding up a train of coal and expressing your disapproval of his act At the meeting of the City Council hose Councilmen present when this onversation is alleged to have taken lacer were Mayor James G Harris nd S H McCracken Joseph Fitch Charlie

asked if there was any one wished to discuss the subject be the resolutions were voted on- MayorlsaidMarshalDeH ven J to interpose at objection toI q t t l those resolutions As I understand i the City Council told me to go ahead well back you up Under these ci cumstances I do not see how you can conscientiously pass resolutions con demning my action in the matter Silence reigned for several minutes Apparently the City Marshal had thrown I bombshell into the cam of the enemy The quietness ofa graveyard prevailed Finally th Mayor aroused himself and said Well gentlemen what shall we do with the resolutions After an I move that they b adoptedwas put before the body Marshal DeHaven arose and said Mr Mayor and gentlemen of the City Council I object to your passing those resolutions You gave me the authority to stop a train of coal I did stop the train feeling assured that had the authority of the City CouncilI behind me I expect you to stand by wordMr or said Councilman Barry there are two sides to every question i I prepared those resolutions and as I understand it they are correct I I am rightly informed Mr DeHaven acted without authority from this body I was not present when this conversai tion is alleged to have taken place but in view of what I have learned from a reliable source I move that the resolu tions as a whole be adopted Mr Clerk read those resoutions over again said the Mayor Second reading No applause Councilman McCracken I do not believe that we should lay all of thi blame on the Marshal I move that the two sections referring to the Mar shal be stricken from the resolutions- I i second the motion came fro across the room What are we voting on asked Councilman Reid No one seemed to know Mr Clerk read those resolutions again chirped in a Councilman Second reading Anxious public suppressed excitement j probabl- riot A disinterested party would hav thought that the Panama Canal Commission was in session again or that the expulsion of Japanese children fro the San Francisco school had been transferred from the National CapitalI to the Cloverport City Council for set tlement In any event it was very apparent that the situation had become grave t0of some of the members of that body Did not I say said the Mayor ad dressing Marshal DeHaven that if were asked what action I would take in the event that you secured coal for the city by any means to relieve the situa tion that Io would take no action IsI I Sot that a fact j C No sir it is Nqa facts What did I say refoined the May or Four councilmen are present who j heard the conversation- No member of the council volunteeredl his services in aid of the Mayor and th 1 incident was virtually closed 1 It was evident that Marshal DeHave- had scored anot ervtctoryIMr Mayor said Councilman Hook I object to voting in favor of those res olutions as they now stand WE DID I I fI F SAY WE WOULD RACK UP THE MARSHALI II weVote on the resolutions omitting the paragraphs referring to the Marshal said Councilman Mc Cracken x A general discussion followed The Council was in a dilemma it was very evident They wanted to make good but Marshal DeHaven proved a very formidable obstruction to the end the council desired What are we voting on asked Councilman OConnell Amid the ap oarent amusement of the spectators the resolutions were again read Fourth reading Nobody hurt the stillness of a graveyard prevailed Councilman Fitch read the resolu tions and argued that he saw no reso lution that reflected on the Marshal- t Read em again some one sug gested rFifth reading No alarming symp toms of a clash The Council was in a quandary bnt did not collapse- I move that we omit the sections blaming the Marshal said Councilman OConnell The motion was seconded pbut before a vote wAS taken Marshal DeHaven addressed the chair- e Mr Mayor said the Marshal I want to say a few words before this question comes to a vote In discu s ing the coal situation you said there- e was plenty of coal and that the railroad company had plenty of cars and was hauling it through Cloverport to other points and that the road should be made to furnish coal to Cloverport It was then that I said if the Council will uphold me I will get coal here if I have- I to hold up a train to get it You told me to go ahead and I did In view of this fact continued Mr DeHaven I do not see where the Cloverport City Council has a right to pass resolutions condemning the newspapers the City Marshal or any one else YOU AU- f THORIZED ME TO GET COAL HERE IF I HAD TO STOP A TRAIN that is what the newspapers stated The newspapers said I held up a coal1 train I did do it The newspapers told the truth I do not see where thi Council can attach pay blame to the newspapers With the sections condemning Mar shal DeHaven omitted the resolutions were adopted only one Councilman J A Barry voting nays The Council admitted that Marshal DeHaven was instructed by that body to go ahead we are behind you but say that it was an unofficial act andl 1that there is no public record of it Is not some significance attached to the factthat the resolutions condemn ing the City Marshal and the newspa pers were presented by Councilman Barry who was absent when this con versation is said to have taken place The City Council is certainly in anI gentlee men be strong enough to come outl aethe newspapers are concerned the City Council of this town is small potatoes 1and few in a hail The report circulated by the daily newspapers to the effect that armedI citizens aided the Marshal in the hold up of the coal train was erroneous but was inkeeping with the various stories the trouble in cfrculation at thatt time The citizens in general of Cloverpo- I l regret the occurrence More than once has the L H St L Railway favors in their way and they are not willing that the Company shall con sider that the recent acts perpetratedl against it have the endorsement of xh I representative citizens of Cloverport That the Marshal acted in goodl faith and did what he believed he hadl the authority to do is the general opinion Those who know him best say mate ter iuto his

HendersotbRoutowant of coal as it has in the few weeks past says General Superintendent A M McCracken Three coalmines are on this road but during the flood only one r was operating The road was com polled to get its coal from this but Mr Cox gaVe explicit instructions that in view of the scarcity of fuel all along the route no more coal than was absolutely necessary should be held by the road So great a scarcity prevailed atone time that coal had to be taken out of the tender of one engine and put into that of the other up at Irvington in d order to get the trains over the roadAThe damage to

You take iny advice ana obey orders and dont ask questions Ho went on desk Immediately and after mt moment Bradley followed him The rebuff was so unexpected arid so undeserved the circumstances con Bldered that It hurt the young man keenly Ills pride was touched and he made up his mind that Captain Tit comb should have no further cause for foitiplalut so tar as Interference by his cerond officer was concerned As for the captain he kept to himself and said little to nny one during the afternoon The new first mate came on board that evening lIe was a thick set heavy man who talked a great deal swore profusely and laughed loudly at his own jokes He aeemetl4oknow his business and as the captain would have saId caught hold at once They sailed the next morning and by the time the tug left them Bradley fancied that he noticed a difference In the state of affairs aboard the schooner The usual rigid discipline seemed to be lacking There was no rebellion or sign of mutiny but merely a general shlftlessucss that Mr Burke did not seem to notice Strange to say Captain Titcomb did not notice It eIther or If he did said nothing Bradley did not Interfere He had not forgotten tho advice to obey orders and ask no questldus There was a good wind and a smooth sea and the captain drove the Thomas Doane for all she was worth By tho afternoon of the following day they were In Vineyard sound Bradleys suspicions had by this time come to be almost certainties For two or three sailors to show signs of drunkenness on the first morning out of port was nothing strange but to have those symptoms more pronounced the even ing of the second day was proof that there were bottles In the focastle But I Captain Titcomb usually the first to scent the presence of these abomina tions and to punish their owners now apparently was unaware of their pres ence Atul the first mate too either did not see or did not care Bradley was standing by the focastle just at dusk that evening when a sailor bumped violently Into him In passing The second mate spoke sharply to the offender and the answer he received was Impudent and surly Here you exclaimed Bradley selz the man by the shoulder and whirl Ilnlt him violently around do you know who youre talking to Speak to me again like that and Ill break you In two Time man lie was a new handmum bled a reply to the effect that he hadnt meant to say nothln Well dont say it again Stand up Youre drunk Now where did you get your liquor Alut got none sir Youre a liar Stand up or youll lie down for a good while Anybody with a nose could smell rum If you passed 1 mile to wlndard Whore did your get It The suitor began a further protestation hut Bradley choked It off and shook him savagely The first mate hearing the scuttle dune hurrying up Whats the row Mr Nlckcnon be asked This mans drunk mud I want to know where the nun cattle from Mr Bnrko scowled fiercely Look here he shouted Is that so Are you drunk V No sir- Youre mighty close to It Why and lucre the first mate swore stetullly for a full minute Do you know what Id do to a man that brought rum tiltounl a vessel of mine Id use hIs blanketyblanked1 hide for u spare topsI anil feeU the rust of his carcass to the dogfish lilt out of here and re memlier Im watchlu you sharp He gave the fellow a kick that sort him tiding dud turning to Bradley said in a confidential whisper Aint It queer how a shore drunkH stick to n man Ive sees em cone aboard so full that they stayed so for a week afterwardI theyve got the liquor down 1 j forard hero I guess not If I thought so Id kill the whole half dozes descriptive ad jectives = lot They cant play with me blank blank urn tit In spite of Mr Burkes tierce nori Bradley wasnt satisfied He be MovedI that If the first mate hind let him alone he would hove found the liquor However he thought If itch timer the skipper nor Mr Burke cured It wilts none of his business But he was uneasy nevertheless- By 9 oclock the signs of drunken ness wore so plait that even the first mute had to admit the tact Only a- very few of the men were I bigSwedeber One of these was the Sweusen Oddly enough this nun had stuck to Captain TItcombs schooner every voyage since one trip on which the skipper had knocked the tight out of him The novelty of a good sound thrashing was apparently just what the giant had needed und for the man who hud licked him he entertained tremendous respect and almost love Capn Ez ho knock the tar out of me said Swenson He stand no fooliu Hes a man Hey He liked Bradley too and bud pre sented the latter with a miniature mod el of a three masted schooner in a putI his big clumsy fingers could have made It But though Swensen and the Portu guese cook and one or two more were sober the rest of the crew were not Mr Burke confessed as much to Brad ley Theyve got rum with em all right he whispered But well be to Boston tomorrer and there aint no use stnrtlu a row till daylight Then some of these smart Alecs 11 find out whos who In a hurry or my fist dont weigh what It used to Better not say nqtbjn to the skipper he addedtlNo + use to worry huI IIt was odd advice d Jill u mate but as Bradley could see to his astonish ment there was no need of telling Cap tale Titcomb It was plain enough that tae latter knew his crows condl tlon and deliberately ignored it Men stumbled past him and he looked the other way Simple orders were bun gled and ho did not reprove Only once that evening did his wrath blaze out In the old manner A sailor was ordered by him to do something and Instead of the dutiful Aye nye sir he replied with a muttered curse The next Instant Captain Ezras fist was between his eyes and he fell tow Jerked to Ills feet again and back to the rail with the skippers hand twisted in his shirt collar Hang your said the captain between his teeth IllI swear Ill Mr Burke came running and whis pored eagerly In his commanders ear Captain TItcombs arm straightened and the sailor was thrown across the deckGo forard roared the skipper and If you want to live you keep out of my sight I cant help It Burke Ive got some self respect left ylt That was all and Bradley wondered Under such circumstances accidents were bound to occur But the one that did occur was serious Bradley was below when it happened He usually took the first watch but tonight Cap tain Tltcomb said he would take It and Mr Burke would stay up with him for awhile So the second mate turned in Ho was awakened by a racket on deck and the sound of voices and footsteps on the companion ladder Opening his stateroom door he saw four men descending the ladder car rying a fifth in their arms Whats the matter asked Bradley Whos hurt ults the skIpper replied one of the men In a frightened olceuHe tell and hurt his head He Bradley sprang into the cabin and saw Captain Titcomb unconscious and with the blood running from an ugly cut on his forehead For Gods sake he began but was Interrupted by Burke who with a very white face was descending the ladderHush up I commanded the first mate Dont make a row Taint nothln serious I guess Jest cussed foolishness Put him on the locker there you This Is what had happened The schooner was passing out of the sound and as the night was black and hazy they were using the lead frequently The Thomas Domino had a high after deck and to reach the waist one must descend a fire foot ladder A sailor not too sober had thrown the lead and In passing aft with the line had fouled It at the lad der Captain Tltcomb losing his tem per at the mans clumsiness hind run toward him tripped In tho line and pitched head first over the fellows shoulder to tho main deck The sailors body hail broken the fall some what and the skull was not fractured but It was bud enough Tho cook who had helped bring the captain Into the cabin lingered after time first mate had gone Bradley ques tioned him about tho accident Thoma ho done It said the cook The line she glt moss up by the lIe wns drunk broke In Bradley lies been drunk all the afttmioon Isnt tthat so The cook looked hastily at the lad dor then at tire captain Thou nod ding emphatically he whispered Ynas sir They most all drunk I never seen so much drink on schooner not on Capn Tlteombs schooner anyway and I sail with him for five yearBut Bradley would not go to bed lie was worried about the captain and even more worried about the schooner lIe did not like Mr Burke and he was by no moans sure JudgJng by what ho had seenthat tho mate knew how to hnndle a crew About 2 oclock he de tided to go on deck Bradley leaned on the rail and looked over the water toward where the shore should be As he stood there the Laze blow aside for a moment and he sues not more than two miles away and ahead of the schooner tho twinkle of a light Then It disappeared again lie walked aft One of the now hands was at the wheel anti there was a dis tinct smell of rum In the vicinity Who gave you that course Mr Burke sir foreIshrouds looking over the side He started when Bradley touched his arm Excuse me Mr Burke said the second mate Where nro we Turned the Rip an hour or so ago1 Bakes tone was distinctly unpleas ant What are you doln here- I couldnt sleep so I came on deck a minute Isnt she pretty close In I thought I saw tho Sknklt light Just how Saw nothln Skaklt lights away off yonder Water enough here to float a Cunarder Whats the matter with you Frald I aint on to my Job When I want your help Ill ask for It Ive sailed these waters when you was a kid- uWell I didnt mean to Then shut up You go below and tend to tho skipper Bradley bit his lip and turned away If Burke was right he had no busi ness to Interfere If he wasnt right the Thomas Doane was shaving the shoals altogether too close He went below found Captain Titcomb sleep Ing quietly and a little later came on deck again to lean on tho rail amid ships and once more stare at the fog darknessA loomed close beside him It was Swensen and ho obvious ly wanted to speak Well Swenson said Bradley what Is it hJltJPdelennodtalward andIWj Ing his mouth with his hand whis pered hoarsely Mr Ncekerson you know bout the fust mate Ho all right What Bradley had bean brought up to dis courage familiarity with men before tho mast What are you talking about he asked sharply Nnwthln sir Only he know this course Ab see Skaklt light twice yust now and only a mil n half off That not noughnot here Are you sure you1saw 117 Yas sir- Bradley turned away He hated to risk another snub from the mate and no fully realized tho danger of interfer ing with a superior officer but Captain Titcomb was not in command and here was Swensens testimony to back his own that the schooner was running too close to the dangerous Cape Cod beaches The course she was on was taking her still closer In and the fog was growing thicker This time Burke was standing by the man at the wheel He swore when the second mate approached and snarl ed Well whats the matter now Mr Burke are you sure that wasnt the Sknklt light I saw Swensen says hes seen It twice and not more than a mile and a halt away If thats so we are running into shoal water Hadnt I better try soundings- In a blast of profanity Burke con signed both Bradley and Swensen to tho lowest level In the brimstone fu tureGo below he yelled Go below and stay below or Ill find out why Then as If he realized that he was showing too much temper he added In n milder tone Its all right Nick erson Were three mile Offshore and TlemfU pass me a handsplhc- Sknklt s astern of us Go below Aint the skipper enough to tike me nervous without you shovln your oar IIn And then from somewhere forward came a frightened yell and the sound of some one running Swenson jcame bounding up the ladder from the main deckBreakers ahead he shouted Breakers ahead Put her over Keep her off quick Burkes face went white and then crimson Bronkors bo hanged he cried Keep her as she Is But tho Swede wins dancing up and down There were confused cries for ward and other non came running Starboard your helm I bellowed Swensen Put her over You can hear em Listen He hold up both hands to enforce silence and for i moment every soul on deck stood listening The waves clucked along the schooners side the wind song In the rigging and the masts creaked And then another sound grew as it were into Bradlcys oarsa low tally murmur now ris ing now sinking He sprang toward thewheelPut over he shouted There are breakers Starboard your helm StarboardKeep her as she ismI bellowed Burke bonding forward with hIs fists clinched Dont turn a spoke But for heavens sake Mr Burke are you crazy Well be ashore In ten minutesThe mates eyes shone In the dim light Ills teeth showed white between1 his opened lips By glory1 he gasped chokingly Ill show you whos running this craft Keep her ItS she Isl Bradley forgot his duty as second olllccr forgot that halt the crew were watching him forgot everything except that his best friend lay helpless in a berth below while his schooner was being run Into certain destruction Ho leaped to the wheel and the mate leap cd to meet him Bradley stooped as ho sprang for ward and it was lucky for him that he did so Burkes fist whizzed past his car and the next moment tho two mates were clinched and struggling in the little space between the deck house and the after rail Bradley did not attempt to strike his sole idea was to get to the wheel Therefore ho merely warded off the furious blows aimed at his head and struggled silent ly but the one sided fight could not last long Burke gradually backed hIs opponent to the rail and then without turning hIs head ho shouted Thoma pass me a handspike Live ly you The man Thoma ho was halt drunk and naturally stupidobedIently plac ed the handspike In the first mates handNow then I panted BurkeIIBy And then Bradley strucka half arm uppercut right under the ugly pro truding chin Burkes teeth clicked to gether bo seemed to rise from the deck and fell backward at full length

these stages is womanhood or the change from a care fme girl to budding womanhood The second is motherhood and the third is Change of Life Perils surround each of these stages and most of the misery

Appeal to Corporations Easton Pa is one of the cities that having tried municipal ownership of lighting plants have found It wanting In a recent message to the city coun cils Mayor March sulil that although be Is a believer in the theory of city ownership nevertheless he would prefer to hand over the city lighting to private corporations rather than sec large districts In darkness as has often been the case In the Inst six months Continuing he characterized this ni dangerous from the police point of view anti unbearable from the citi zens adding that If the city contin ues t3 operate the plant It mu t br run as a private corporation would nn It There should not only be econ my but the machinery should be cou Btauty repaired and renewed both for efficiency and to keep up with mod ern progress in electric lighting Much of the machinery being almost worn out he advises that arrange ments be made to borrow current from a local company In case of breakdown that the city streets may not be kept In darkness while repairs are going on lIe does not say what he would advise were municipal ownership complete and there were no private companies Built in 1880 the construction cost of Eastous electric light plant to date has been about 70000 In a summary of the situation the Sunday Call which appears originally to have favored the enterprise says the plant isnt satis factory and the city hasnt the money to renew it The companies must now be asked to put lu bids for city light- Ing The Call think they can furnish It cheaper than the city can Itself Eastous lighting experiment the pa per adds has been costly and unsatisfactory The city was bonded to es tablish the plant and now that It is worn out and almost useless the debt remainsNothing has ever been charged up for depreciation but the people were told that this was unnecessary as the plant was being kept In good repair Fifty thousand dollars was spent In patching up the plant but the statement that it was kept lu good order Is now proved untrue and so Iit the state ment that the cost was less that a private corporation would have charged for the same service though many people believed both statements for n timeAccording to a special to the New York Times women and children are not considered safe on Eastons streets at night and sixty firms and buslmw men have petitioned that the street lighting be turned over to a private corporation at once THE FUNNY SIDE OF M 0 Politics In City Departments A Queer VetoCity Poles Downed humorouslny items In Its December Issue Com menting ou the proposition of the Business lens club of Cincinnati that civil service rules should be Introduced luto the municipal department Mr Miller n member of the board of pub I lie service Is quoted as saying 1 think the first requisite for u good official Is that he should be a Rood Democrat The mayor of Blufftou Ind is more subtly humorous Ho advocates mu nicipal ownership as nn antidote for monopoly aud then vetoes a fran chise for a gas plant because It would compete with the municipal electric light works and probably would rev duce the citys 40000 plant to a mass it junk This Is rather wore than a tacit admission that the consumers are paying through the nose But the fuuulest thing of all is that some of the citizens of Chicago had to go to law to compel the city electrical department to obey its own laws Because such construction Is much cheap er this department undertook to erect poles In a district where the ordinances require wires to be placed under ground The citizens appealed to the department to protect them from what they assumed to be the Intrusion of a private company Instead of being al layed their Indignation was rather in creased when they learned their mis take and they did not stop until the city council passed an ordinance re quiring the removal of the poles Municipal Wages In England As thin result of an application from employees for an Increase of wages the

Englands wealth according to the London Express is increasing at the rate of 7000000 a week That is less than oneseventh of the rate of the increase of wealth in the South The increase in the true value of Southern wealth in the pas 12 months was 2690000000 or jin about 7300000 for every day in the year including Sundays and holidays Not only is the speed of increase in the South so much greater than that in England but the South possesses resources ng riculturaland mineral that make certain in the future even a much greater rate of increase than England No wonder the London Ex press

through some newspaper its report for the year 1906 The custom has beenjj to publish this report about January 1 in accordance with the law i Ordinance No 8 Section 6 under head Duties of City Clerk reads He shall keep a correct account between the city and its officers 1 1and require all officers to make monthly or quarterly settlements as Ij quarterly and detailed statement all receipts and expenditures of the city and the amount remaining in the treasury which reports when approved t by the council shall be spread at large upon the records and ho shall iii caused to be published annually a full statement of the financial affairs of the city I S The citys money for 19015 may have been expended in the most judicious way but the public has no record of it handy As it now isIone would have to go to the clerks notes and figure it up for himself rho News cares nothing as to whether or no it is given the report to publish but we do insist that the report should bo forthcoming at
