"Bryan's Curves." Senator Gray, of Delaware, is a Democrat. He has just returned from Paris, where ha was a member of tho Peace Commission appointed by President MoKInley. Ue was asked what he thought of Bryan's attitude on the expansion question. He quaintly replied: "I am not on to Bryan's curves." As the curves of the base ball pitcher ara simply attempts to trick ond deceive the man at the bat, it fully describes Bryan's statesmanship. His first great "curve" was a "golden" one, exploited at the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1896. Bat the people got onto his "curve" in tho following November and sat down on it to tho tune of 700,000 majority. Hia next "curve" is that -brought forth on expansion, and ia a nioro measly affair than hia crown of thorns and cross of gold, and will meet with less consideration. UPPER ALTON. Mrn.

The controversy over (be Fifth street paving, just accepted by the board of public works, culminated In the council appointing, at a special mooting last night, a committee Io secure tho services of a bonnl of three engineers from outside of the city of Alton to examine the condition nud quality of the work. The aldermen whose unfavorable report on the pavl.,g was rebutted by the report of tho "whitewashing" board, were indignant and declared they will bo vindicated even though at personal pecuniary expense. The council stood 11 to 3 on nil subjects, the throe being Aldermen Noonan, Hoffman and Matthews, who stood with the mayor. At roll call only nlno members of tho council were present, but others arrived in a few minutes. After the reading of the cull for tho meeting, Mr. Bowman asked that tho clerk read tho ordinance for the pav Ing of Fifth street aud Ridge street. U was read, and Mr. Bowman aekej that the contract with D. Ryan be road. Mr. Noonun claimed that because of an error in the call, tho meeting could accomplish nothing. Mr. JNoonan declared that the call was to Investigate the Fifth street Improvement, whereas technically It was tho Fifth struct and Ridge street improvement, ^Mr. Young and Mr. Bowman contended that the call was legal, and the mayor, after a voluble harangue, in which he declared his iutonlioua had been all right, notwithstanding what "the newspaper" might say to the contrary, and that that he had not "stood In" with the contractor.

Gillham, of Wanda, was driving to town and was just opposite a plug near tbe lower depot when the first spurt of water gushed out of the couplings, which had been left open, and shot clear across the street. His horae ran away, awe-struck by the unwonted sight, and Mr. Gillham was verv forcibly impressed with the fact that Ed wards vllle has water works at last. Although the pumps were started the first of last week the first water took that long to traverse the five mile on account of the engineer being troubled with sand getting into the strainers. The contractors have their bauds full remedying breaks In the line attendant upon the first trial. At two places along the Wabash right of way tbe water pressure blew out the lead caulking in the joints and forced torrents cf water up through tho ground.
