Gottscball, who testified in tho coroners inquest that tho man who woe found doad alont: tho railroad east of Anoka Tuesday, had told him a short, time previous to tho finding- of the body thut his name was Albert Ridgoly, and that hia home was in While county, was probably mistaken in his impression that the body was that of tho man who had talked with him and with whom he divided his lunch on that day. The young woman who waits table at a Broadway restaurant who testified that she had known Bldgely well and that the body was that of Kidgely, was aleo probably mistaken In her impression concerning the identity of the body. Yesterday morning Henry Rldgely, father of Albert, arrived in the city in response to Coroner Busjahn's call for him and upon viewing the body unhesitatingly declared that it was not Albert and that settled tho matter. The elder Kidgely was considerably worried at the thought that It was his son who was lying at the morgue and his feelings were greatly relieved to Snd that a mistake had been made. He said that Albert had left home tome days ago to loo IE for work and that he did not know where he was. It is not unlikely that Rldgely passed along the track the same day on which the body waa found, and that he had had a talk with Gottsohall, and thus the latter mistook the body /or that of tho man with whom be talked. The mystury surrounding the identity of the deceased ia thus made all the deeper. How he came In possession of tho Insurance receipt of H. J. Dunham is still a mjHtory, »od who he was and where he came from is all a deeper my story, From the fact that the printers' utenails and some type were found on him and that bo further had very shapely and well-koot hands —a printers bund—the 9rst Irapres slon that ho WHS a printer out of employment and compelled to seek from town to town for work, remains, That be had no Union card, if he were a printer, might be accounted for upon the suposltlon that he had lost that valuable posseselon.

The proposition and specifications woro read and adopted and a contract was entered into. Five democrats and four republicans voted/or it and one republican, Dr. Powell, voted against it. Dr. Powell stated that ho favored the project but thought it inadvisable at the present )' time. Ho fnvoged economy always und he .favored expenditure when it was necessary, and whan the cash was on hand to make it. Ho objected to goinfj- in debt. Ho called attention to tho fnct that this wns a democratic council, and that the party would be hold responsible as loii£ aa it waa in power. Tho othor members thought that true economy laid on tbe side of a city plant and so voted, The motion to enter into n contract on the turms proposed by tho Standard Electric hitfbtCo., of Chicago, was carried by a vote of 9 to 1 against, and the city will own its own electric light plant. The proposed arrangement provides that tho $10,000 raised by levy made last year shall bojipplied on machinery and^jjj)BW*5; that water power shall be used and that lots below tho water power on the race shall be sold to further meet expenditures; that the Forest mill shall bo sold or supplied with steam power and rented; that tho city shall pay $80 per year for each light instead of $100 as at present and In three years shall own the plant complete; that incandescent lights shall be furnished private consumers and that tho receipts therefrom shall pay operating expenses; that when the plant haa paid out the city shall own the plant, tho city to get its lights free, the operating expenses to be paid by tho revenues derived from tho anlo of incandescent lights. The council estimates that this will create no city debt, require tho issuing of no bonds and at tho end of three years the city will save $10,000 per year by tho arrangement. The proceedings wore as follows: THE COUNCIL I'KOCKEDINGS. The Council met last evening in ad. journed peFsion, present, Mayor Eoad and all Couucilmen. The meeting was to consider the contracting for an electric ligh.t plant, and the report of tbo Special Electric Light Committee made Wednesday evening was called up and discussed. Mr. Dolan moved that the report and specifications be read and adopted, and thla provoked some discussion. Dr. Powell objected to ' the enterprise at the present time though declaring himself in favor of it. Charles S. Knight of the Fort Wayno company owning the present plant asked the courtesy of tho council and made a few remarks opposing the project. The reading of the specifications consumed considerable time and at tho conclusion by a vote of nine to one, Powell voting nay, the contract was approved. The Council then adjourned and the Mayor and Clerk affixed their signatures to the document which gives to Logansport its own electric light plant. OTTO KRAU LAST YEA', $1500 NOW $7 50.

A few days ago Hio Journal con., tamed an account of vhe questionable acts of Eugenia I-ar.g, formerly of tbla city, cow Mrs. Cohen of Cincinnati who in the role of a deml-mondala under the name of Kiuie Edgar, robbed a man in a houi-e of ill repute at Cincinnati getting $80C from him. Eugenia made a bluff at suicide to escape trial. The suicide rocket ia not a new thing to her. Once before she tried the same thing at Chicago. The Cincinnati ^Enquirer, speaking of the affair says: Last Sunday, according to gossip among the neighbor*, the made a bluff at ending her life by taking a large dose of what afterward proved to he nothing but powdered chalk, but what at the time wn? thought to be morphine. Dr. A. L. McCornv.ck was summoned, and he found that the woman had worked herself into a dangerous convulsive strain. He roon satisfied himself that she hr.d noi taken poison, and Mrs. Cohen quieted down to her normal condition. however, she asked the doctor la certify that she was not physically able to appear in court, which ho refused to do. He told her she would be well enough to attend the trial.and after prescribing for her nervousness he left. The neighbors of Mrs. Cohen say that she made another au tempt to end her life on Monday, but the woman's mother, Mrs. Gua Lang, would neither affirm nor deny this. 11 IK Cooil.
