Mr. Stevens knocked Harwood down, as any one but a cur would, and in place of pounding him, simply held his hands, asking some one to take the cowhide, and at the same time demanding an explana** tion from Harwood, to which Harwood simply responded, “It don’t need any explanation, you know what it is.” The— parties were - fleperated and ' the whip was taken from Harwood aád the cane from Moore by Dr. Dougall and Stevens was taken into the Postofflce aiM Harwood walked over to his hotel.

Dr. Bowdish, a celebrated Russian chkppodist, has taken up his quarters a the ét. Nicholas. The first contraiit the Doctor took was one from plans and specifications, drawn for W. B. Caswell by a Chicago archit^. For some time past Caswell has been thinking of making extensive alteratiofia^in his feet. At last plans have been secured which specify the removing of a few bay win dows and one or two piai^ and i cupola.

Mr. Harwood said that it was no inatter of business, be volunteered to say that the rumor that Mrs. Harwood ‘ was ' mixed up in the matter personally was false, ^but would say nothing farther. Moore says that the idea was to mark Stevens, and expressed his intentions of using the cane, if necessary. There was some one in the case known to both himself and Harwood, who had not come before the pubiio aud who probably would. He did not wish the party to, but when the time came there would be an explanation. They had good evidence to justify th«n. His inference was that there was a woman ip the Jcase. Mr* Stevens pleads total ignorance as to the cause of quarrel; he has no knowledge of doing the slightest wrong, and that there must be an explanation for the matter, or he shall not rest. He points to his past life in Jolief as arecord which the public can Judge him. He does not know Moore has known Harwootl a long time and knows Mre. Harw'ood by sight only, he has nevei;; known anything about Moore or any of liis relations.    ' An attempt to interview Mrs, Harwood resulted as follows: News—Mrs. Harwood, I am in search of light on the subject now uppermost in. the minds of the public. You know of what I speak. Mrs. Harwood—Yes; but I am afraid you will find nothing but darkness here, Newft-*-It is currently reported that there is a woiuan in the case, Mrs.H.-yes! “ News—Having been assured that you are not })€rsomlly mixed up in the affair, I thought Mrhaps you would state What portion of the fomlly’s good name had been assailed. Mrs. H*—Indeed! NEWB-^Yes, it is generally uaderstood that there was a woman in the case, but who she is remains to be seen. Mrs. H—Ah! NEWs-rThe supposition that it is a near relative of yours is correct th^n? NEw s—I asked a question. Mrs. H.—Oh, I beg pardon, theji I iua eximcted to answer. -    . News—If you will.    w Mrs. H.—I am not ready, the time may be when I will talk, aud you know when women b^n to talk, their tongues run on-^like Tennyson’s Brook—forever. News—This has been a very satisfactory interview, Mrs. HarwoOd. Good day. Ag:*lu They are Kr-e. There were ten happy faces in the de pot, this noon, waiting for the train to take them to Chicago. They were just out, and^vere getting ready to start again in life. Some to try to refonn others to go back to their old haunts of vico anditfFtme. Wotild it nbtdo grea,t good, if s'me, kind charity should be formed to help these poor fellows along in their hard time. Who wants a con vict near them? Few consider the men are human, and gradually they are forceti back into the mil-e. If some kind Christian hand were hek out to them as they left the gates of the dull pen how many_mor|^would te Rves and sometime perhaps show what kind providence had done for them Among all those who came, only one seemed to have friends who thought of him and who had brought him clothes to wear, and which would not show to the people on the train what his past bad been. €k»n«.

Billy Green, the festive sixth ware politician has, after almost superhuman eflbrts, succeeded in breaking into the penitentiary for a term of eighteen months. lu íparting with Biliy^ mahy will be the pahgs that will course through the veins of sixth ward polRib^ ians.

The "poimlar’’ vote of the sixth ward wiR be decreased about 200 and bring the thing down to a voting capacity somewhere near its voting population. Poor BRly and he so yonilg and nnsophisticated ’Tis unkind in Judge McBoberts to thus blast the young life of so useful and ornamental a twig that wai just buddmg into Its sphere of real worth. BiRy is gone, he pleatl guRty to larceny and said he needed rest. He. wRl doubtless re-|nrn to us again in the full vigor of hia j^buth and become, once more, a iiower in t^Bixth ward. There are worse men than Dijly Green however. His punishment is attributable to the fact tha^ these samefroliticians who patted him on the back^ the time of need, and swore eternar friendship to him to make him their tool, deserted BRly when their purpose frad lieen accomplished and he was no longer any use to them; then he could steid apd get punished. l!>uch is man’s iuhU|nanity to man.    \ -—    — - \ A Miitak« Wm Made.

A petion from a numbei of business men on Exchange and Jefferson street presented, asking that the grade on Exchange street between Bluff and Hickory streets, Hie cut to be three feet, and the gravel taken out tobe used on the street. The work to be done bjr tramp labor. Aldennan Marsh thought he saw a nig^r in the fence and he did not want to see the thing done by tramp labor, as they would not do it right and there might be mist^es that would cost hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars in the future. He thought that the property owners should pay for their whistle by a specül assessment; that tramp work should be done only wheró it was of pub. lie interest, as the people pav directly for their support. He asketwthat the matter be referred. Alderman Haky was in favor of its being done at once, as it was referred it w'oiRd take a whole mouth before it would be brought up again. [A point in favor of weekly meetings ] The reason that it should be-douo by tramps was that these gentlemen only pntinap-pearence in the winter, when the nighte were cold and they could not sleep along side of fences. He maintained that the question was one of pubiio interest as the business portion of the city would receive the benefit from it.’ He was strongly in favor of tramp labor thongUt that they the other laborers during the pa.st few wet>ks that they had cost the city $15(1, and had done over $1,000 worth of^work, and he therefore moved that the work be done. Aldermaun 0.' Smith was opposed to this and thought that the trumps should be put to wuik.on the ¡work of tlio city under the charge of the street commis-sioner,Jwho had work that needed doing. Aldennan Martói again took the floor to demonstrate what he had said before was right. Helf^oredthe work being done by ttamps and by a general appropriation, but wanted to know the cost of the work before it was commenced. Councilnien Morqn did not like such work done by tramps, as it would take them five years to complete it; and further that poor hcmest sober men were brought before the judge and all he said was $10 or work it out. It was moved to refer the matter to the"^ committee on streets on the West side to ascertain the cost. Motion was lost. . ■ ^ It was moved that the petition be laid on table also lost, or an original motion to grant it was also suffered the same The report of the SoperintendjUF | streets Was presented Mid lUed.

Aldennan RRey doubted that Joll^ reserved her proportion of the road-ta* expended in the county. His Honor pointed Messrs, RR^, Cope and Hale» to confer with the commission. The clerk was directed to report all special a.ssessment orders on which the w ork had not been completed. A complaint was made that Charle*; Werner who is under contract to furnish stone to the city had refused so to dOg that the Street Commissioner had been obliged to obtain it in other places. Th*« clerk was directed to request of Wern^ information as to his intentions as to ^ntrect and report at the nextmee^-when the council wiU adventmre fortiidfi and the eqntract^referred to the dty at* torney to commence suit.

Then oame a shouting park of sohoot boys witji demonds for gasoline lamps* Each of the favorite statesmen from the wards had a lamp which would benefit his constituents and each must have it.

Ea(!fr“^councihnan gave his did as good Avork    tbatJunips were It hud been shown debuting school. Honest Moran told the most truth when he said he wanted the lam IS not because they gave light but to satisfy his people, that the people could sec the lamp in the day time and be happy. After some slight talk Alderman Riley stated that Moran was tiediqitO' the Uas Company as he is their foreman. Moran was indignant but mowed that the-council order certain lamps caped whieh were kept burning aU night by wicked citizens and that gasoline lamps be* placed in their stead. R’ley'said that it was a drive at him and moved to lay on the table and it was carried. Riley got the best of Moran ali through the discussion by his sharpness in the tricks of parlimcntary law and would not even give Moran a chance to defend himself, much to the disgust of the latter. A ¿uel with fists st emed evident in the couucR at one time, a» these two gentlemen aired their wounded features. The company was ordered to keep their lamps clean. Three lamps were ordered placed on Herkimer Street. . ^ The Alderman moved that a committee of three be instructed to inspect the halls, churches and other places 6t pub- and lie amusement, and see what provisions had been made for relief qf the ooofi* cnpants in case of fire.
