It was a Waterbury and the burglars, even, weuld not take it. Thus it happened at the residence of Hon. Perry Grace on. Thursday night They left the Waterbury watch on the table, but took the chain. This is a sad commentary upon the premium the Freeman offers. WHO WBOTE SHAKESPEARE? Shakespearean students and all lovers of the immortal bard of Avon will be interested in the discussion which will take place at the Academy, Milwaukee, Tuesday, April38, be- tween Hou. Ignatius Donnelly and Prof. J.C. Freeman. The former argues on the side of Bacon as the author; the latter contends that none other than William is responsible for tbe sublime creations which go under his name. It will be a battle of the giants. Both are deep thinkers, profound students of literature, keen and witty orators, to whom the platform is as familiar as an office chair to most Such an opportunity one meets bi4 seldom in a lite time, and it is hoped many of Waukesha's cultured people will find it possible to attend. TAKTKG L. HIDE. The Freeman has jumped on to the wagon, and is at tbe present time moving along with Judge Martin, the JOCRNAL, and various other citizens of Waukesha who know a good thing when they see it. The Freeman was a passenger upon a municipal bill wagon, a few weeks ago, and raised its hands in holy horror at the thought of tbe sacred precincts of the county court being polluted by he trial of tramps, drunks and tnings. Our esteemed, if misguided, contemporary, scoff- ed at the idea that Judge Martin could do anything to abate this great industry, and conveyed the idea to its readers that_tramps and drunks would be thicker than hair' on a dog, around the probate office. The JOUB- NAL is that the Freeman haa found out ;hat there is not as in tbe county court bill as there was. SHOULD WAKE UP. 'The village board of, trustees" says the Democrat, "have made an order for the coming charter election on the first Tuesday in May to be held in conformity with the provisions of a bill which has passed both houses of the legislature but has not yet been signed by the Governor. This bill-provides for the election ot village trustees for the term of two years instead of one year, as heretofore. One-half of- the number are to be elected in each alter- nate year, so that three trustees will hold over every year Tha dull and sleepy optics of the poor old Democrat have yet to dis- cover that the bill was signed by Gov. Peck on the iSch of April, and published by the official organ, the (Milwaukee Journal) Mon- day April Chestnuts! WITH BUROLAKIOHS INTENT. There was a full moon on Thursday even- ing, and it was obscured in so far as any of Waukesha's officers were concerned. Per- haps there was blood on the face of it. Tbe residence of Perry Grace was entered by burglars in the ordinary is, they calmly unlocked the door and went in. Two pairs ot pants belong ing to Mr. Grace were taken down otairs, containing accidentally 50 in change and a silver watch, valued perhaps at The burglars overlooked two elegant gold watches that were in the house. On the same eveninK midnight marauders invaked the residence of Orlando Culver and secured a gold watch, belonging to his brother, and betwes-n and in Mr. Culver's pants pocket. On the same night they entered tbe residence of E. K. Knowlton, superintendent of the Wisconsin Central. They also captured all the money in the residence of Mr. Hamm on Weal; ave- nue. No clue to tbe burglars has ob- tained. That they are professionals goes without saying. The keys they had in possession would unlock the doors of any residence in town except those secured by a Yale lock, and it is doubtful if even Yale would oppose their entrance. NO JORISDICTIOK. The Freeman this week raises tbe great cry with a three header, over the stuff that is dumped on Henry BidweU's farm, and is located in tbe Town of Pewaukee. Neither the village board, the board-of health, or the health officers have any power to abate this nuisance. THE JOURNAL acknowledges that it is a nuisance, and ought to be abated by some one, but it is outside the juris- diction of tbe village of Waukesha.-Th only remedy seems to be the State board of health or the Town of Pewaukee. It is a grievous wrong that all foul things' which emanate from tbe village of Waukesha should be dumped upon grounds from which in the natural course of things they come back to us through Weber's pond and to the detriment of Waukesha. Another thing, in this connection is the fact that the man who owns the property upon whichlthe refuse of the village is dumped accepts pay for the privilege of dumping, and at the same time has had an advertisement in a Waukesha paper warning people not to use bis premises for this purpose. IB would seem that the Freeman in referring to a matter of this} kind would get at the root of it-tell the whole truth about it-so that its talk about these matters might be of some consequence. THE JOURNAL wants cleanliness and health in the village, and of course the Freeman really desires the same thing. .It is only a question of judgment and common sense to accomplish reform beneficial to the town. This is also true of street improvements and other things. We all are interested, pre- sumably, in what is for tbe best interests of the tax payers. Let not any of us go oft If vra can help it. FREE DELIVERY. STREETS TO BE NUMBERED ON THE PHILADELPHIA SYSTEM. How It to be and College AvenueN. MudlKon Street and the to be Unod Uane go Into ef- fect at Once. We are glad to be able to state that Wau- keeha Is at last to be tnoroughly and cor- rectly numbered on the plan known as the "Philadelphia." system, one hundred to a block, a system which is used in mout cities tLat have been numbered within the last twenty-five years, and is the only one in favor with the postal authorities. Our vil- lage has beeu numbered before, but as the parties doing the work were under no obi I- j gation to finish, the consequence was that only the principal streets were numbered. This can not occur again as T. J.Dwinnell are doing the work, are under bonds not only to complete it but also to deliver to tbe city a plat showing the number of very building and vacant lot in the cor- i.For the benefit for those who do not under- stand the present system we will explain, hat all running in a similar direction start to number from the same street which is. known as a base line. The base line for all north and south streets is College avenue, and for all east and west streets is East avenue. Across the river, the river and Madison street will be used as base lines The streets crossing College avenue will re- tain their old name north of College avenno, one taking the prefix south. Those crossing East avenue retain their old name, west of it taking the prefix east, on tbe east. For in- sttrice, on Grand avenue which crosses Col- lego avenue all tbe numbers in the first block north will be in the one hundreds Grand avenue, and in the first block south in the one hundreds south Grand avenue; in the second block north, two hundreds Grand in tbe second block south, two hundreds south Grand avenue, and so on. Tnere will be no number less than one hun- dred as the first block on each side of all base lines begins with the hundreds. We trust that this work will be pushed On as fast as possible so that we will be without free delivery no longer than is absolutely necessary. _ ____________ College Notes. Prof. W. L.
