The Story of an unfortunate. The Story of Mollie Davis the Courtesan who came near dying at the Central station on last wednesday is really a terrible one. A Little More than two years ago when she was a virtuous country girl fifteen years old she was ravished on a lonely Highway by a tramp who first struck her a violent blow upon the head and then pitched her head Foremost Down a Steep embankment where she was found in an insensible condition. Her mind has never since been quite right and partially excuses Lier erring life. A few months since she was struck upon the head and she alleges made to Swallow Poison by a Man named Clark with whom she was living and came very near dying in consequence. On last wednesday Clark had her arrested for provoke. About 7 of clock City jailor Taffe discovered her insensible with blood flowing through her lips. He hastily summoned or. Bullard who succeeded in reviving her. Or. Rubush the attending physician also arrived shortly after. Throughout the night the poor girl had terrible convulsions which the doctors say was caused by the blows she had received upon the head. During her Lucid intervals it was distressing to hear her moaning for her child who is dangerously ill at Home. The doctors think there is utile Chance for her recovery.

The Best oth mor Prev aued it thing the evening and All left area late hour Well pleased with the Evenio til entertainment the provisions Hereof shall on conviction be found in any sum not exceeding 8100. Section 2. This ordinance shall be in Force from and after its passage and publication in the Indianapolis daily journal for two successive weeks. The Beauty of this ordinance is that it cuts both ways it fines the purchaser if he is a Street commissioner or chief fire Engineer or any other City official As Well As any member of the Council who Sells to a City official. There is no erecting around it. The ordinance has never been repealed. It is in full Force to Day. If the City attorney does his duty he will at once Institute suits against those City officers who have been found guilty of violations of this ordinance. A list was Given in the people two or three weeks since. Of course suits will have to be instituted against commissioner Fui Mer and chief fire Engineer Pendergast for each of these officers have acknowledged that they have purchased articles Tor the use of the City from members of the municipal legislature. The journal the other Day hunted up an old ordinance against the running of cows at Large and insisted upon its being enforced to Quot the distress of poor people. Now let us see if the great Republican state Organ will insist that this ordinance that affects Well to do Republican City officers shall likewise be enforced. Here is an Opportunity for the new City attorney to distinguish himself and put thousands of Quot dollars into the Treasury of the City for each Selling constitutes an offence against the ordinance and the penalty for each offence a ran be fixed at 8100. Will he enter suit against his Republican Brethren we shall see. These honorable offenders cannot prove ignorance for ignorance is no excuse in the Eye of the Law. The Hon. John Coburn brother to the honorable Henry will Tell you that if you ask him. We can see no possible escape for these honorable lawbreakers. The discovery of this ordinance proves the correctness of the position taken by the people from the first that it mattered not whether Alderman Coburn sold his lumber cheap or dear to the City he committed an of base a inst the Law when he sold to the City at ally likewise did his Brethren who did business with the City one of whom. Alderman Layman a very Clever gentleman by the Way and we Are really sorry for him a was chairman of the committee that half investigated the charges against the Hon. Coburn. By the Way is it not somewhat strange that this committee never discovered this old ordinance it would have settled the matter at once and there would have been no necessity of referring the Case to the new City attorney. We hardly think it Likely any other honorable member who has sold his wares to the City or mended the City s engines or anything of like character will with this ordinance Star i u ing him in the face get up in his place and without the preferment of charges or an in Demandt investigation to find out whether vesti gation of any kind he is voted out off he sold dear or cheap. A k a this beats the Case of the City civil Engin or Reed having arranged his Bis Mes a Eer All to pieces. So Many Are involved in Cep Edthe office for two years filed hip Boivid it you see gentlemen who make Laws for the does not feel justified in obeying the Arbi City and have no hesitancy in breaking them tray action of the Council and will demand Alderman Henry Coburn deserves the thanks of the Community for being the innocent cause of the discovery of this old ordinance whereby offenders against the Law will meet with just punishment and the City exchequer be Reif Lenisher. Had he never demanded an investigation ten to one it would never have turned up but now like Banquo s ghost it will not Down. One Day this week prof. Heine who is qui mechanical Genius took to pieces a Large English clock for the purpose of cleaning and repairing it. After removing the wheels and other works he was surprised to find the pendulum still swinging with unabated Energy. Attracting the attention of other parties to it they found that the pendulum continued swinging for an hour and a half without any other moving than its own Sweet will. City Engineer Reed and the City Council. Some weeks since the common Council passed a Resolution declaring that they had removed or. Reed from the office of City Engineer. This Resolution went to the Board of aldermen and at the next meeting for its consideration. Or. Reed filed a petition asking for a committee of investigation. This was granted by the Board of aldermen and their portion of a committee appointed. This action was sent to the next meeting of the Council who in a very Stalwart manner in the classic language of councilman Hooker moved that the Council stick to its former proposition and no debate was allowed on the proposition of the aldermen for an investigation of any charges against or. Reed and the peremptory action of the Council was again referred to the Board of aldermen who finally tie action of Trio Council and voted with the Council to not allow or. Reed any Chance to have charges filed or allow him to make a defence. Or. Reed was allowed no trial but was arbitrarily voted out of office. There seems to be something under ground somewhere in this whole matter. In the convention of the Republican members of the Council and aldermen or. Reed was nominated Over or. Patterson the Birmer City Engineer. Or Patterson and his friends were sore and started the cry that Reed was a Democrat and not a Republican and that he was incompetent &c., and a violent Eibrt was made to hold a second caucus in order to reconsider or. Reed s nomination and defeat him and nominate or. Patterson. This Effort to get up a second caucus failed and or. Reed being the nominee was elected by the joint convention of the Council and aldermen and accepted the office filed his Bond which was approved in the usual Legal Way. He was then elected and qualified to serve As City Engineer for two years. The majority of the Council however determined if possible to oust him and notwithstanding the recent Advance in Pilk fabrics we Are holding a Large Stock of ribbons in All colors and widths at old prices. L. S. Ayres amp Hay and Fence bails. Forty tons of Hay and 4,000 Fence rails Are reports to have been burned on the farm of Lliam and Oliver Stone in Warren township. It is thought an incendiary fired the Meadows in which the Hay was stacked. The neighbor slowed up a strip of the Meadows thus staying the fire and saving the on the bail. Charles Sinclair a brakeman on the i., c. L. Road was knocked off a Bridge near Lawrenceburg on last sunday evening and being run Oyer was instantly killed. His Remus were brought to the City next Day and placed in charge of Russell amp Lee. Sinclair win marked several months since to a deaf mute a Pupil of the deaf and dumb Asylum who is expecting very shortly to become a Maraer. A Legal decision from the courts and has retained for his counsel Charles Holstein and col. John w. Blake. This action is taken not in a Mere spirit of resistance but believing that he has just and fair Legal rights that the councils have trampled upon and upon this he rests his Case and will Abigie the Reed of the people is wrestling with old fashioned Quot fever n . Editor Reed Only wrestled for a Day or two. He s pretty Well again thank you. Arrivals of probably infected goods. The arrival of several car loads of goods from ill toted Memphis and the storage of a portion of them in a commission House has created the Fet in the minds of Many that the yellow fever might be spread among us consequent upon the presence of these goods in the City. They came by the j., m. A a and have varied destinations. Quarantine regulations of other cities prevented their shipment by More direct routes. Indianapolis has no quarantine regulations probably More s the pity. The goods were fumigated with camphor and it is probable that no evil will result Froin their presence yet As a people we Conot be too careful and should Mke All necessary and Wise precautions against the dread disease which is now ravishing a sister Southern City. _ Why the Indianapolis bibles picnic was a failure. For some time past we have had Public meetings of our citizens to devise ways and Means by which people May be induced to come to this City to spend their to Kiev instead of going to Cincinnati Louisville a and other adjacent cities. An association has in formed with this object in View and everybody thought our citizens were in Earnest. The Indianapolis rifles thinking to help the City along and help themselves at the same time conceived the idea of getting up a grand picnic to Las two Days. A grand Arch was to be erected bid Well s air ship was to show what it could do we were to have Man races horse races and mule races and we do not know what in All at the exposition. But the rifles had to do the work comparatively alone. They received word encouragement but precious Little Money to sell half fare tickets for want of funds or something else. Bidwell s air ship did to show what it could do and sorry we Are for poor Bidwell who has Laboured so hard in this Enterprise until from comparative affluence he has poverty staring him in the face then the management of the picnic was somewhat at fault. Although they Quot powered free notices upon the press and Nau Seum they neglected to Shower any free tickets. If what thu people published in behalf of this com Ino Dable Enterprise was charged for at legitimate rates Foo would hardly have paid the rifles Bill. But not a single ticket was sent to the office of the people. One of the managers told one of its Young men that if he came out to the exposition he would be admitted the kind of an invitation the people never accepts. Why the Arch which would have attracted thousands to the City was not built we cannot Tell for we do not know. We suppose however that no one was willing to Advance the necessary funds. Our people Are great in talking and meeting to talk they dearly love to hear their own voices but when it comes to opening their purse strings to carry out what they talk about Why that s altogether a different matter. The Enterprise of the rifles was praiseworthy and everybody would have supposed that it would have been encouraged. But it was not As it deserved to be. If they come out without losing Money they will be fortunate. Wilkz arson sentenced one thousands. Out of in this age of ballot Box stuffing and improper influences brought to Bear at the polls it really seems like a farce to sentence a Man to the Penitentiary for a year and Fine him ,000 for making use of any kind of Means or machinery to beat Quot the other fellow and vet the other Day judge Gresham imposed this Fine and sentence upon James h. Wilkerson of the Well known Jennings county cases the Only one out of ten or fifteen who was found guilty for conspiring to procure a fraudulent election. The fierce is in the fact that politicians High and Low stuff ballot boxes and conspire to procure fraudulent elections Ith impunity. They not Only do this but of it and that not very confidentially either. Everybody knows Quot that it is a common custom Quot in this City to take men from one Ward to another and vote them Early and often both at primaries and at regular elections yet no one Ever thinks of arresting those who do this conspiring to procure a fraudulent election.
