Mayor Mnybury of Detroit is in Washington now seeking to secure from the government an appropriation of $500,000 for government building and exhibit in Detroit In lfHl at the -projected celebration of the 20Oth anniversary of the founding of the old French town in Michigan. Mayor Mnybury gave out an interview in Washington to the effect that Omaha had an appropriation of $300,000 and that Detroit ought to get at least half a million for a government building, to which the city could add a million later on and make It a permanent building.

Mayor Diehl also received information of a private letter written by a well-knowu Buffalonian, now in Detroit, to the effect that petty jealousies in Detroit do not militate against the whole city's good and that Detroit will go to congress'with a solid body of representatives. The writer also states that the Tan-American is regarded as a "dead duck" in Detroit. Mayor sets forth these facts and continues his statement an follows: "It thus appears that the present plan of the Detroiters is to have their. celebration of the founding of the city take the form of an exposition, and our neighbors i are apparently acting outhe assumption that Buffalo has not enough energy and enterprise to give reality to the Pan-American Exposition. "In view of this sudden development of the Detroit movement, I cannot, help feeling that Buffalonians should be up and doing even before the incorporation of the new company.

This city is confronting a crisis in this matter. Inaction would mean defeat and humiliation. In order to consider this Detroit movement I have this evening mailed notes to a number, of citi-rens requesting them to act as a provisional committee. I hope that they will all consent to serve.

THE GAS DEAL Stockholders to Vote on the Proposition on December 28th A Circular Will be The New J'ork Evening Post of yesterday printed the following concerning the absorp-t'bn by. the Buffalo City Gas Company of the People's Gas Light and Coke Company: directors of the Buffalo City Gas Company have prepared, and will Issue to stockholders tomorrow, a circular setting forth the terms on which settlement has been reached with the Addicks Interests In Buffalo gas properties, and calling a special weetlng, to be held at Buffalo, December 28, in order to allow the stockholders to vote on the proposition as there set forth.

Humboldi Parkway Owner Must Show Cause Why the Speedway Injunction Should Stand.

BITTER FIGHT BEGUN. Park Commissieners are Bound the Speedway Shall be Built and Property Owners Are Bound it Won't Justice 'White in the" special term of the supreme court this morning granted an order compelling property-owners on Humboldt parkway to show why the injunction whicl) they secured against the-board of park commissioners should not be vacated. This order was made returnable before the justice in special term nest Monday morning at 10 o'clock. Corporation Counsel Cuddeback went before Justice White in 'accordance with the directions of the park commissioners, and secured the. order to show cause.

This injunction, which the city seeks to set aside, was secured in the name of Henry F. Holtz, a property owner on Humboldt parkway. After the park commissioners had tried various locations in the. city, to locate a speedway, this fall the board hit upon, a half mile stretch in Humboldt parkway from Kensington to Delavan avenues. The commissioners voted to build the speedway there and sent a request to the common council for $5,000 of deficiency bonds.

That was knocked out in the board of councilmen and the commissioners sent another request for the issuance of $5,000, worth of bonds, leaving out the word deficiency" to which the councilmen objected. The last request was never carried through the council. Iast week the pork commissioners, be lieving that they were being dictated to, decided to go ahead and build the speed way with the money available in another appropriation. Bids were asked for for removing the trees and taking up the sod. Messrs.

Harding and Hager were appointed a committee to decide upon what trees to be removed and to let the contract for their removal. Before any work was done by the subcommittee Mr. Holtz, through Attorneys Carey and Hancock, appeared before Justice Hooker in the special term of the supreme court and secured an injunction restraining tbo park commissioners from doing any work pending the determination of, an action which was begun to secure a permanent injunction. That Injunction order was served upon some of the park commissioners and stopped 1 all proceedings. On Monday the board, of park commissioners held a special meeting and voted nnnnimpusly to instruct Corporation Counsel Cuddeback to fight the injunction proceedings and to make a move to have the temporary injunction set aside.

The commissioners also decided to give a public hearing to all interested next Tnesdny afternoon in the office of Mayor Diehl. It was claimed b.v-the property owners in their action for the injunction that they had never been given a chance to be heard. It was in accordance with these instructions that Mr. Cuddeback appeared before Justice White and secured the order to show cause this morninr. The park commissioners arp determined to fight the The contention of Mr.

Cuddeback" 'Is "that injunctions should not be granted by the courts- except where some great and irreparable injury or damage can be ahown. He asserts that the property-owners can' not -show' this and is confident that the injunction will be dissolved. v-: A lively argument is expected in special term next Monday morning, as the property-owners will also vigorously oppose the setting aside of the injunction which they secured.

As a tlmesuver, the telephone is Indispensable. It Is needed iu every house as much as tt Is needed In every office.

William H. Ityan, representative-elect from the 32d congress hat withdrawn from the race for re-election as chairman of the board of supervisors. The withdrawal on the part of Mr. Eyan was entlreT ly voluntary. He did not become a candidate until urged by a number of his many friends on the board.

This leaves the contest between James D. Wilson of the lirth ward and John Elmer of the 13th ward, with the chances at 100 to 1 in favor of Supervisor Wilson. In fact It is said that a majority of the city members have secretly agreed to support Wilson, and that a caucus will be held tomorrow afternoon at which tthe action will be formally taken. Nell McCIoskey, the present efficient clerk to the board of supervisors, will be reelected without much of a fight. If any at all, and Robert Woodburn will be reappointed assistant clerk.

Councilman Zipp Believes that the Faults of the Charter Should be Corrected tfus Winter. Councilman Zlpp is prepared to urge a revision of the charter.

He had a resolution to that effect ready to present at the meet ing of the common council yesterday, but the common council failed to produce a quo rum. ,1 The councilman says he has no radical changes to suggest but that he feels that the charter of the, city needs revision In certain, places to make it more Intelligible and more convenient. He points out that under constructions that have been placed on certain sections of the charter, the com mon council can vote away thousands of dollars -of the city's money with a majority approval, while It takes a unanimous vote to grant a butcher's license or a building permit. I Mr. Zlpp says that the mayor approves the plan and, that all those with whom he has talked are in favor of it.

He suggests that every head of department has found some flaws In the charter as relating to his de partment, that each department lay these cases before a committee, and that I the flaws be corrected by the legislature. He urges that the matter should be taken up at once and the revision be laid before the leg islature this winter. A BURGLAR'S WORK.

Their entrance scared him and he escaped through a window, jumping to the ground He was In such baste that he left behind him an overcoat, which may be the means of his capture by the police, who went to work on the cae at once. .1 The burglar took with him all the plunder be had collected until the interruption in his et terprise.
