on Monday evening next be sub mitted to the Council for final reading and passage Councilman Evans was selected to grace the chair and to him also fell the oilice of reading which he did in his happy musical way the ordinances to be considered by the assembled wise men The ordinance providing for the changing of the name of Division street to that ot Eighth street was sanctioned the action being deemed necessary in order to obtain a system in the numbered streets and a favorable report in the matter was recorded The fire ordinance was then read and called forth considerable comment result ing in the alteration of a few features Councilman Collins stated that this ordi nance which was cesigned to prevent the construction or continuance defective chimneys and flues which constitute the cause ol the average lire bad been carefully drawn up and was copied in a great meas ure from the fire ordinance of Kan ran cisco He believed the measure to be in the interests of property owners and favored its recommendation ordinance mentions patent chim said Councilman McAvoy it seems to me that it puts a premium on them to the detriment of chimneys of local a patent is responded Councilman Collins material ed and the manner prescribed tor placing in num linn jur i i'hm in utnrv patent chimneys have a drum circling the the terra cotta with an air chamber be tween making such chimneys absolutely fire Councilman McAvoy asked if it was not true that insurance companies levy in creased rates where terra cotta chimneys are used and Councilman Camron answered that there was no extra insurance fur en closed chimneys of that composition The word disturbed Councilman usual peace of mind and he moved to strike it out wherever it oc curred special building law is what we said Councilman McDonald of the buildings provided with brirk chimneys are unsound and there ought to be an' ordi nance governing this provisionally restrictive significance Councilman Evans averred that it the fire ordinance passed in Oakland alone one manufacturer of patent chimneys would flourish while a certain other one would doubtless fail Economy and Lack of Employment Oc casions the Discharge of Men in the Railroad Shops The Wife of ortune Teller Miller Casts Him Off as Worthless and Ko Good she does not But Mr Num baumer did not take kindly to this proposi tion jind asked if Mrs Hay could

town burned up He advised speedy action and remarked oneordi nance isn't enough why draw up an ad ditional one and do business well" He considered the ordinance a diserimina ion again patent chimneys as (he word los The work of rebuilding and repairing will commence immediately Later information places the loss higher than was first suspected John Motan the There have been many inquiries as to why the present inactivity exists as con cerns the lack of work in the West Oakland railroad yards as well as elsewhere in the service There are very few men employed about the shops at present and within the past month some twenty five additional men were discharged The number of locomotive engineers has also been reduced and recently seven former engineers have been forced to accept the po sition of firemen This lack of work so claim the railroad men generally is caused by the new Eastern locomotives and the economical management of Superintendent Small The engines are capable of a great deal more work than the former small sized engines The large locomotives are capable of carrying 170 pounds of steam while the small ones usually carry about 120 pounds There is scarcely any work doing in the car shops or roundhouse 2k number of rumors have been floating about to the effect (bat Superintendent Small would be asked to resign to give place to a relative oi the Hopkins family but this is not looked upon by railroad men generally as probable or a long time past there has been more or less talk of lighting the railroad yards by electricity and since the return of Slater the railroad elec trician from the East who is known to be in favor of the plan the discussion of this proposition has been renewed At present after nightfall it is difficult for a person not acquainted with the lav of the yards to make his way through tfiem and the con stant running back and forth ot trains is liable to cause a collision at any moment It is proposed to light the yards' by 14 arc lamps The only electric in the vicinity of the yards at present is that at the junction of Seventh street and the Berkeley crossing placed there by the rail road company A large quantity of unappraised tea has been shipped from the street wharf is Not a Walking Delegate for the Nationalists To the E'Htor of the Timet In your issue of Tuesday yon give me the title of delegate of the order (the 'Nation A

is the educated and smooth tongued fakir who works on the educated but credulous dupes under the name of fortune teller or clairvoyant If those who permit themselves to be robbed by such fortune tellers and clairvoy ants would only notice with what certainty such professors read the palms stars or dreams to the detriment ot their own suc cess and happiness their better judgment would teach them that it would be better to act for themselves without cost than to support those who Jive on the recognized failures of their own lives Within the last few days one of these 1 sure thing

discovered in the dtying room of the Contra Costa Laundry located at the cor ner of ourteenth and Kirkham streets The drying room is a small room located in the upper part of the main rick building

Department who were soon on scene and under tne direction ot Chief Ken nedy fought nobly to subdue the flames Had the alarm been turned in more prompt ly than was the case it is probable that the damage would have been very slight it was a hard and dangerous fire to fight on account ot the liability of the division walls to fall in The polishing and fin ishnur rooms attached to the building escaped the flames but were more or less damaged by water There was a quantity of valuable machinerv in the main building but the damage will be slight The washing ironing and drying rooms were destroyed but the greater part of the washing was saved the timely efforts of the employees who piled it on trucks and hurried it out of reach ot the flames Yesterday was one uf the busiest days of the week in laundry and a large amount of the clothing was in progress of cleaning The clothing in the drying room was destroyed What was not burned will require rewashing liny Bartlett the general manager of the laundry was on the scene shortly after the fire commenced and assumed general direction ot things During the lire a chimney and division wall toppled over and the firemen narrowly escaped severe injuries At the time ot the outbreak of the fire most of the employees were at their lunch and when they returned and found what appeared to be the building in flames a scene of conlnsiun ensued especially among the women and girls A large crowd of people congregated in the laundry grounds to watch the progress of the lire A large part uf the 300 wliite will be thrown the
