Tho "lobby" at tho council chamber 'was crowded .at the regular, monthly " meeting of the city council hold Monday "'(.yening. The members of the council ' looked askance at the throng of curiosity < seekers, and significant !*niles ro- .pdatedly meandered over tho noble lihyMogs of the city solons. A feeling that "something was about to happen— or drop," pervaded the stuffy und much 1 odoriferous combination jail and council room, producing a quietus that was at times painful mid which at, others ^Ineatened to .extinguish the electric : glim—or glims.' Clerk Shea scanned tho faces of tho aldermen, and when Mayor Trebilcock called out, "come to order, gentlemen," Messrs. John Mullen, Hodin, Mildren, j Drawer, and, Cremens were found in their places just—at quorum. Aldermen Sutherland and Laughren Were dilatory, but they showed up in ' ;timo to hear a few "stansms" of the ; minutes of the special mooting- of December 19, lead. ,' ^ Twenty-seven residents and tax-payers of the district bordering on Mar quette street—the proposed new Ward 7; Four,by the way—petitioned tho council to extend the water works and sewer systems from Vaughn to Ayer streets ppjj'W' al ong Marquette.

He thought $2.00 PER YJ and Air. Conloy was declared elected. Tho city recorder reported that he had succeeded in collecting $217 in dog tax. ArV.hen Mr. Shea made his rounds in quest of the gay and festive purplet there must have been several hundred of him (thu pnrplet) that were outcasts and friendless. Tho city'. treasurer reported that ho had collected poll tax to the amount o! $S,H51. The question of keeping the street lights burning, all night to faciliato the tho podestriamsm of those who are on the streets after twelve o'clock,was taken up, and the lighting: committee was instructed to do it little figuring with the electric eommny and report the result at the next libeling of tho council, •nds were presented Three liquor and approved. It was ll:lo journed. IRON KINGS the council ad «'T PURCHASE. '(,. ith'e cjtt, should purchase a team for the "apartment. "The present system was ^unsatisfactory us well us expensive. Mr. Jfammond's remarks brought forth a lively discussion, and a resolution was ly offered and passed that thu city ihase a team. The mayor said he had,, appointed Thomas Eddy temporary marshal to fill vacancy caused by the'Vesignation 1 Andy Byrnes. Alderman Mildren moved that the incil approve the mayor's appoint- 7t, and that Mr. Eddy be permanent ihal. The motion was seconded by Iderman Brewer.

Mr. Carnegie and oth'er leading fur- lace men are said to have given out their intention to buy nJfpre until late, n the spring, says the Cleveland Marine Review. They point to stocks of ore on ke Erie docks valued at $11,000,000, it a low estimate, as a reil^n for this conclusion and say that m\ yroducers must come down in their prill's. This is all true enough under prVWt conditions, hut it does not seem Although Cleveland ore dealers will boti\er the furnace men in the mutter of ore sales for some time to come. The feeling among them would indicate Unit'they will spend less money for traveling expenses than is usual in January. , Mr. Carnegie's determination to delay purchases was anticipated, lie purchased too early last fall. Single deals involving $500,000 or more were made with him as early as Thanksgiving time and it is reasonable to suppose that the outcome of the market on which those purchases were made would prompt him tn delay operations this winter. In the meantime the ore dealers recognize the importance of awaiting the outcome of the present depression in the iron industry as it can hardly become worse. There have been some rumors of a combination among them to restrict production hut this does not seem reasonable to anyone acquainted with the diversity of interests in the business.. II the output is to be cut down the condition of the market will regulate the- restriction. The sales agents have held,' two or three meetings and have submitted statements regarding stocks, etc., Unit would tend to indicate the course to be pursued but it is not probable that anything further has been done, in the list of quotations on mining stocks, tho Minnesota Iron company's shares I mill others have been noticeably marked down. There is little or no sale for itock prices are very low. SCHLESINGER RETIRES. Big V Who Was the "Tenderfoot?"
