This was in striding contrast to the situation two weeks ago, when Deacon Haigh dared to oppose the will of Czar Bowyer and caused so much astonlshmeno. It was plainly apparent when Mr. Bowyer showed up with his original recommendation concerning the purchase of electric light machinery that some sort of a compromise nad been effected between him and Mr. Haigh, chairman of the committee on lire department. The Pharos will now ring up the curtain and expose the set it up and put up a guarantee of 15,000 that it would give satisfaction. This proposition brought Dr. Hattery and Mr, Woll in turn to their feet. Both urged that the council could not afford to ignore a proposition that would save the city so much money. Their appeals were in vain. "The horse's eyes were sot." Dr. Hattery moved that the matter be laid over for two weeks in order that Mr. Kirltpatrick's proposition might be in"estigated, that they were willing to accept the report of the committee on such investigation, He was seconded by Mr. Woll, but the proposition was defeated. They, in turn, stood alone against the n the event of a compliance with tbe petition DO ordinance of the city would be violated. A plat of Morrison's addition was referred to tho street committee. A final estimate of the improvement of Broadway from Third to Seventh street was referred to the street committee. The appointment of William K. Costello as minuteman in tbe fire department to succeed Edward Manes, resigned, was confirmed. A petition for an electric light at Broadway and Sixth street was referred to tbe electric light committee. CHICAGO JURKKTS Received Uaily by W. W. Milner, at 6. A. R. Building.

Yes terday there was a ciucus of the tw factions and an agreement wasfinall; reached whereby the demands o both were satisfied. Mr. Dykeman, the Democrat! member of the fire committee, had a minority report favoring the pur chase of the Logansport combination hose and chemical wagon, but he and Mr. Graff, the Democratic member from the Third ward, were absent from the meeting. Mr. Boyer's first proposition to purchase a 370 horse power engine met with no opposition, but Dr. Hattery succeeded in obtaining an admission from the representative of the company, upon the floor of the council, that the Erie engines originally purchased and now in use are of an inferior grade and that there is little demand for them- When the recommendation of the committee for the purchase of the house dynamo. It might be well to state that Mr. Klrkpatrlck was In the employ of the Westlnghou.se people for ten years, and sold the city the machines now In use here. He also made some intimations concerning- that deal that must have made Boyer feel rather uncomfortable. It was also learned that the engine purchased last night is of the high speed class long since discarded by practical electricians, and that the attempt will be made to operate 1C at the rate of 630 to 775 revolutions above the Intent o' the manu- will not "•» only Sexteanial League, a Fraternal Insurance Order.

GOLD DOES NOT COME.. Westinghouse dynamo was presented Dr. Hattery called lor explanations from representatives of companies engaged in the manufacture of such machinery. Mr. Ed, F. Kirkpatrick, representing the Fort Wayne Electrical company responded. After making the declaration that the Fort Wayne machine Is the equal and In many respects superior to the Westinghouse dynamo, he proposed to save the city the handsome sum ol 1650 on the deal; that he would be a question of a few years when It will have to be replaced by a low speed engine. THE WAGON BUSINESS. Dr. Hattery and Mr. Woll both favored the purchase of the Logansport combination hose and chemical wagon, which was offered at the same price as was made on the Baltimore wagon. They urged the importance of patronizing home industry. Mr. Woll urged the council to postpone action until Mr. Dykeman, tbe Democratic member of the fire committee, could be heard; that Mr. Dykeman had a minority report and common courtesy demanded that he be given an opportunity to be heard on the question. It was no use, however. Tte slate was made. The horse's eyes were again "sot." COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Remitting orders were ordered to be issued to S. A. Vaughn for $3.33, John McG-Ulln for $1, Anna Gillispie for $1.68 and George A. Flanagan for 15.50, all to cover errors in tax assessments.

Mr. Smith, the governor of the Bank of England, informed the New York World some time ago that he didn't expect any large flow of gold to the United States. Then $3,000,000 or $4,000,000 came over, and The World announced editorially that Mr. Smith didn't know •what be was talking about. Nevertheless for three months past the balance of trade has been immensely in our favor, and now the season of cotton exports is nearly at, its highest point. Still the gold does not come in anything like the quantity warranted by the balance in our favor. What has happened? Well, it is a little cnriotis that Mr. Smith, who didn't know what he was talking about, should have had a hand in the matter. -The rate of discount remaining at 3 percent, i tbe Bank of England has ia a single i week contracted its loans by over $20,000,000. This, of course, means a stringent money market—so stringent, indeed, that it is cheaper for those who owe baiiiuc^s in New York to settle them with American securities than to send gold. It seems that Mr. Smith, -who didn't know what he was talking about, had a pretty good idea what his bank would do when this country began to "touch" it for gold. Notice is hereby given, that I, the undersigned trustee, under a deed of assignment, ail tbe goods, wares and merchandise of Edwin M.

It appears to be generally understood Shat when congress assembles in the early part of December the administration -will have a formulated financial scheme ready to submit to the representatives. Secretary Gage has already a scheme of reform prepared, and he has obtained for it, so we are told, the approval of many congressmen and senators, financiers and editors of influential newspapers. What tbe precise details of the secre- ary's schema are the public has not >een informed, but there is reason to >elieve that the two main points of tbe scheme are (1) the conversion of the in erest bearing debt of the United States nto ons kind of indebtedness at a very much lower rate of interest than is paid at present, and (2) the issue of gold bonds with which to bny in and cancel the greenbacks and Sherman notes—the national banks of coarse to be allowed Mrier term* for the issue of note* than they lire allowed now.—New Qrleaot 'Craw-Democrat The Buffalo Bur. The native home of the buffalo bur, sometimes taken for the Russian thistle, is on the plains of the west and for several years bus been working its way eastward. It is abundant from Wyoming southeast to Texas, also occurring iii Mexico, New Mexico and Arizona. It has been reported from Wisconsin, Mis- eonri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, New- York, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Maine. It has also been reported in Germany, where it has occasioned sonie alarm. It is the host plant of the Colorado beetle. Before the introduction of the potato in the west this weed was the food plant of the potato bug. In the southwest, this is one of the most noxious of all weeds. In this connection a writer in The Prairie Farmer says: "Inasmuch as this weed is an annual it can easily be exterminated by cutting off the young plants below the ground, and this should be done before the pods are formed If the plants are older, they should be cut off and burned," Mere Mention. ' The Denver Field and Farm Bays: "One of the hardy grasses of our west- em country is Bed Top, Agrostis exara- ta, which is more robust than the common Bed Top of the eastern and middle states.
