Woods, tho husband of tho woman whose pitiful story, taken from tho Wabush Plain Dealer, was published in yesterday morning's Journal, proves to bo a poriphtotln insurance ngont who hns field out in Lofiansport einco last February boarding at a boarding houeo on North etroot. His wife was with him until last Thursday when sho lort him. Those who had an opportunity to observe tho two declare that Woods treated his wife shamefully and tho poor woman waa probably compelled in self defense to adopt tho course i described In tho story from Wabash, printed yesterday morning. A card received here Tuesday evening by a friend whom Mrs. Woods had gained during tho unpleasant period of her existence hero, and dated at Lima, 0., gives tht) unfortunate woman's story: "I suppose you are anxious to know whore I am and how I am getting along. Well I walked to Peru, stayed over night and took train in tho morning. Was put off at Wabash. Saw the Trustee. He refuted to do anything for me and I took the next train and got off at Huntington. Took next train on Erie road and wae put off at Dacatur. Then I came to this place. Will you write to me at Jamestown, N. Y., as soon as you get this?" A mixed Identity. The body of the unknown man who was found dead along tho Pennsylvania track east of Anoka Tuesday, Is Btlll lying at Woll's morgue, unidentified. The Iniurance receipt made out in the name of H. J. Durham, av Chicago, was the only paper on his person which might give any clue to his Identity. Two other clues were learned yesterday, however. Ono was upon tho authority of an old gentleman from Onward who looked at tho body yesterday and declared his belief that the man was Albert Heggly who formerly lived at Onward. Another possible clue was that of a party who had divided his lunch with a man whom he thinks was the deceased, tbo day before and who says that tbo party wbo helped him eat hie lunch said thathla name waa Rldgely and that his home was in White county. Coroner Busjahn will attempt to unravol tho mysteries surrounding this very much mixed Identity. Handle JTaetorr Wood for »•!«. Handle factory wood delivered to any part of the city.

Tho Fire Committee reported the purchase of 1,000 foot of rubber hoso at 75 cents per foot, which report was concurred in. The Firo Committee was instructed to locate a firo alarm box at the cor nor of Ohio and Indiana streets. The report of the special blectric light committee upon tho matter of the establishment of a new electric light plant to be owned and operated by tho city was submitted, and it was resolved that iho discussion and consideration of tho samobo taken up at an adjourned meeting of tho council next Friday evening-. The concerns bidding were, tho Wostinghouso company of Pittsburg Tho Western Electric Company of Chicago and tho Standard Electric company of Chicago. All other electric companies had notice. The General Electric company ot Chicago, also had notice but as this company owns iho Fort Wayne company, which furnishes tho present light, it was not anxious to put in a now plant. Tho bid of the Standard Company was the lowest as shown by tho following report: KEroni. To the Honorable Mayor and Members of the Council: GENTLEMEN:—Your special olfectric Hghtcommittee which has had the matter lu hand relative to the expediency of the city having her own electric light plant would respectfully report that owing to the clty'a debt being above the statute limitation we could not purchase directly the machinery for said plant for the reason that we have not tho money on hand sufficient to pay in cash for such a plant and tho law prohibits us to make any contract which would be evidenced by note or bonded obligation. Therefore the proposition and specifications that wo submitted to your honorable body for ratification some weeks ago, which contained in them specified payment could not be legally adopted and if adopted no manufacturer would furnish machinery under them as they could net collect under the law the promised payments made therein. Therefore your committee did not push the matter under the former plans and specifications, hence tho delay in making a report to your honorable body. Your committee, not willing to give up tho principle which It started out to accomplish, it being one in whloh tho oity would get rid of paying $100 per year for each lamp for lightning 1 . They formulated another plan which In its estimation la fair and equitable and should be sanctioned by every taxpayer in Logansport as a good legitimate transaction whereby we violate no law for the reason that we do not make any indebtedness. The following is tho plan that we herewith submit to you, this evening with specifications to adopt. The city in tho event of putting in this electric light plant will uso all the surplus water the pump house dcu't want; therefore the race to tbo Forest mih will be abandoned and filled up which will plve in addition to said race, Dy ground on each side of It, a large plat of valuable building lots which can be gold and the money used in the ereo. tlon Of the building for the plat. We have an offer now to trade these lots for «uoh purpose, therefore we will not incur any debt in putting up the building. Jor the reaBon tbat if we «hould not have enough money to build Bald plant we can iell tfte old Fcre8t mill and uie that money for »aid purpose. Therefore you can gee that your committee ba» made OTTO KRAUS LAST YEAS, $1500 NOW $7.50. MAN'S OPPORTUNITY! BUSINESS SUITS LAST YEAR, $15.00 NOW $7.50.

OTTO KRAUS "OF COURSE.' arrangements thia fur without going in dobt by which tbo city will cave tho building and water power ready to receive tho electrical machinery atd all the steam and water power to run it sufficiently. Therefore your committee has made the following propo> sition to three leading electrical manufacturing companies; that sho would enter into a contract with any first class company for tho machinery ncc- eseary, consisting of engine and boilers to produco -150 horso power, already set up in building- and dynamos to produce current enough for 150 to 180 arc lamps to light streets, and incacdoFcent dynamos to produce 2,500, 16 candle power. Lamps allsot up and In good running order for which said city would give a franchise or lease to any company furnishing snid, machinery for fivo years tho right to use the building and water power, and contract for lighting the streets for the sum of $80 per lamp each year, providing said Electrical Manufacturing Co. would furnish tho city the fore- poing machinery at tho sum of $35,850.

The contract ard bond of Stevens & Bcctwarcis for the pumping machinery at the pump house waa submitted by the water works board acd approved by the council and ordered spread on record. It was announced that Anthony Gruaenmeyer election inspector of tho third precinct 0' tbo second ward had resigned. Tho recommendation of the city engineer for the construction o( a sewer on Twenty-fourth street from North street to High for the purpose of carrying off storm water, was referred to the street committee and enginetr to report at the next regular meeting. Tho engineer's report upon the improvement of Oitowa street was received and referred to tho street committee. Adjourned until Friday evening. MORE HIGHWAY ROBBERY. Total iimount $35,S30 Wnoreoy the city will pay but the $10,000 already provided by levy made last fall, the meet of which ia now on hand, the building which explanation hiw been already made for iho cost of its erection, the balance of $25,800 to be paid for in lighting at tho rate of $80 per year instead of $100, which the city ia paying now, and liable to continue to pay if this proposition which .is offered to the city tonight is not accepted. Your committee would further say la justice to tho parties that have accepted this proposition that they are the best bidders by $7,000, lower than any of tho other manufacturers that had figured on furnishing machinery in the same quantities and on the plin of payments i above enumerated. You will there-1 foro see that at the rate of $80 per year for 150 lamps, which is littlo enough to light tho city properly, the payments made to this contracting party will pay out in 25<t months all their demands against the city for said machinery whereby tho city will bave her own plant paid for and turned ovor to her by said contracting party under contract so understood. Ynur committee will further explain that we have caerfully estimated tho csst of operating said plant and wo find that the 2,500 incandescent lamps at half the price the present company is charging will meet all tho expenses made In operating it. This matter in all tho details being oare. carefully examined by your committee we earnestly request the solid vote of this council In adopting the method of procuring an electric light plant which proposition may never come ngain when tho city can pay $25,350 of the actual cost of such a plant in lighting. The failure of adopttng lc ' 8 P' an wi " compel the city to pay more money for the same time to the present company and not get half the service and in the end have no plant and no money to buy one.

Foot ones and highway robbers are again at ihcir work. Yesterday morning between two and three> o'clock Ed Anhicr, a Pan Handle caller, was up at Hamilton Heights to call a trainman. While walking- along- unsurpcctiLg anything wrong- ho '.ras assaulted by three men wbo jumped out from a secluded spot and held him up. They rapidly went through him, securing $25.85 which he had drawn tho evening 1 before from the pay car. Ed did not recognize the men, but thinks that they wore laying for soma one else, as, in his estimation a call boy would ordinarily bo exempt from the designs of foot pads. Tho police were at once notified but nothing has developed that would lead to the apprehension of tlio gang, who are not unlikely tbo earao fellows who held up Tony Zolt a few nights ago. The Evolution Of medical agents is gradually relegating tho old-time herbs, pills, draughts and vegetable extracts to the rear and bringing into general use the pleasant and effective liquid laxative, Syrup of Figs.
