THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL. Annual Report of tho President, John Newel!, Esq. Net Earnings of the Company for 1872, $2,103,106.83. Which is a Falling Off of $629,740.61 in tho Year. John Nowoll, Esq., President of tho Illinois Central Bailroad, has just submitted his report for tho year ending Dee. 81, 1872, to tbo Direc tors. It is as follows: Tbo earnings on thollno In Illinois wore $0,618,433.07 Tbo working 0xp0u5ca....54,034,723,70 And tbo Stale tax 442,850.64 4,407,685.33 Leaving not earning!. ’The earnings of the leased lines in lovm were...... ’Which, deducting the woraingexpenses $ 822,13*5,83 Bent 603,301.53 And taxes (agalnstslo,s33.- OUa 1671) 70,034.87 1,150,001.02 Shows a deficit of. In working tho lowa lines, and reduces tho not earn ings of all linos operated by tho Company to Against net earnings In 1871 A falling off In 1872 of. Making the proportion of expenses and taxes to gross earnings 00.76 per cent Tho receipts from pasconper transportation In Illi nois woro $105,000.08 less than in 1871, and In lowa, $4,801.81 less. Tho receipts from freight transportation In Illinois were $432,357,00 less than In 1871. In low’s, $07,209.00 more than In 1871. The operation expenses wore $204,034.70 greater than in 1871, owing chiefly to the excess in train service re quired to move tho additional tonnngo, consisting of coal and other cheap freights; to cost of repairs at Chicago, Incident to tho lire of October, 1671, and to the protection of tho road on tho lake shore. But lit tle reduction could bo effected in the passenger train service, though tho earnings were largely diminished. The net earnings over tho Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railway arc increased $189,104.50 as compared with those of 1871, a result caused by tho greater dis tance tho lowa truffle passes over that lino under tho now contract. . Eighteen million eight hundred and (hlrty-ono thou •-Jind nine hundred and fifty biifihcls of grain were forwarded from stations in Illinois, and 0,732,620 bushels from stations in lowa, upon our lines, of which 16,020,230 bushels were delivered at Chicago, and 3,807,860 bushels at Cairo. 62,383,000 foot of lum ber were forwarded from Chicago, a falling off of 7,003,000 feet, as compared with tho shipments of 1871. The coal traffic roaches 371,000 tons, an increase of 112.300 tons over 1871. Tho total quantity of freight transported In 1873 was 3.039,331 tons, equal to 272,290,900 tons hauled ona mile, yielding an average revenue of 216-100 cents per ton per mllo. In 1871,262,160,390 tons woro hauled ono mile, at the rate of 2 32-100 cents per ton per mile. Elevator “A” has keen rebuilt, with a storage capa city of 1,000,000 bushels, giving uow, 2,760,000 bushels total storage capacity at our Ohicago terminus, Tho freight tracks and facilities at Chicago were much enlarged, and changes were made to enable us to furnish tho Michigan Central Company additional land for their increasing traffic. Our new dock at Chi cago, designed for receiving lumber to bo shipped by our lino, has been commenced. A contract entered into with tho Mississippi Central, and Now Orleans, Jackson k Groat Northern Railways, which aro operated under ono management, ratified at tho shareholders* meeting In May last, provides for tbo extension of the former railway to Cairo, und a mutual Interchange of Ir.ilUo on this road, on satisfactory terms. In consideration of tho performance of the contract by those Companies, this Company is to in vest annually one-eighth of Us earnings from traffic to and from those Hues in tho consolidated mortgage bonds of each railway, If they can bo purchased at not exceeding par, lu currency, tho minimum amount of bonds of each road so to ko purchased being fixed ut SIOO,OOO annually for ten roars. Wo have obtained from tbo Cairo City Trustees 3,500 feet of tbo Ohio Luvoe, iu Cairo, north of uud ad joining tho freight levee of. this Company, for tho freight transfer station and car ferry for tho Missis sippi Central connection. Lands held by tho Compa ny upon the Mississippi River iu C;.iro, and not needed for its use, were conveyed to tho Cairo City Trustees Thoy have released this Company from all obligations* and claims under old conlracto. Wo paid for tbo lamia on tho Ohio Lovee, nud releases, tho sum of $76 000 which was charged to account of right of way. * Tbo Land Department sold, in 1872, 41,677 67-loa acres of tho donated lands, for $336,918,119, making tho aggregate sales to tho cioso of 1872, 2,200.032 1-100 acres, for $23,023.17, and leaving unsold ut that date. 3*4.367 99-100 acres. Your attention is invited to tho accompanying re ports oftho Trustees of tho Ooubtrnctlin Mortgage, and of tho officers of tho Company, for full informa tion of tho operations of tho year, la thoir several de partments. In view of the largo decrease of tho earnings during the past year, it Is deemed proper to refer lo tho causes which led to It, In order Umt our shareholders mny eoo that the past was au exceptional year, and that they may reasonably expect hereafter, If not during tho present year, that tho results of tho operation of tho road will be more satisfactory and profitable. 'When this railway was projected it was supposed that Illinois and tho Northwestern States, as they should bo settled would, after supplying tho demand from tho Southern States, find tho cheapest means of transpor tation for their surplus products by the lakes and canals to tho seaboard, for tho consumption of tho At lantic States and shipment to European markets. On the completion of the railway this expectation was realized, and tho competition which has grown up by tho construction of railways ' crossing, it at various points, and forming. In connection with tho trunk railways, direct linos from all sections of Illinois to the Atlantic ports, was not sulllclent to seriously affect its grain tralllc until tho lost year. The disastrous fire at Chicago In October, 1871, had loft us but one grain warehouse, which was filled curly In January, restricting grain shipments to Chicago un til the opening of navigation In April. Again, before Juno 1 we were forced to doclino receiving grain for shipment to Chicago faster than it could bo disposed of there. A large increase in tho price of Iron stimulated its production last year In this country enormously, and created an unusual demand for tho Iron ores of Lake Superior for tho furnaces of Ohio and Pennsyl vania. This diverted a largo number of vessels from the grain trade, causing a twofold effect upon our traffic. It raised tho cost of shipping grain from Chi cago to Buffalo to almost double the ordinary price, and enabled the competing lines leading East to divert grain from wider districts upon our line than they had before boon able to reach. It caused a dearth of vessels, which, coupled with the lack of warehouse capacity, prevented our disposing froely of tho grain offered for shipment to Chicago, and it largely In creased the expenses. These causes which have pro duced tho diminution of onr net revenue in tho poet year may continue to affect our traffic tho present year, but not to tho same extent. There has boeu built, and Is how building, a very considerable Increase lu (be shipping to navigate the lakes, which will bo ready at tho opening of navigation. The Dominion of Canada is preparing to Increase the size of tho locks on tho Welland Canal, and thus add largely to tho capacity of the trade from Chicago to Montreal, which will furnish a cheap line of tram portatlon of grain for tho European markets. The state of Now York is Improving the Erie Canal, and rendering Its capacity greater. This will uccoo sarily reduce tho freights upon It and add lo the advantages this routo offers for ship ments of grain via Now York to Europe. The great trunk lines of railroad from Chicago to the Atlantic States aro providing additional tracks snd rolling-stock, and now lines East from Chicago are In course of construction. All these Improvements will furnish a large increase of the means of carrying from Chicago to tho Eastern markets tho produce of tho Northwest, and, by furnishing tho moans to send produce forward without delay, greatly enlarge our capacity for bringing it over our Hue. In addition to the expected restoration of our traffic In Eastward-bound produce, wo have before us tho Im mediate prospects of a largo accession to our business Southward. For several years after this road was com pleted, It furnished tho only direct railway routo from the Northwest to the Southern States, Terminating on the Mississippi Itlvor, at tho mouth of tho Ohio, tho lino had tho advantage of almost uninter rupted river navigation south, but was about 23, miles from* tho northern terminus of tho nearest Southern railway. From time Co time, other railways have been built, and have diverted portions of tho Southern traffic which this lino had developed. Tho arrangement made with tho companies, whoso Hues of road lead from Cairo to Now Orleans, heretofore referred to, will, before the cloro of this year, furnish us, by a short ferry across tho Ohio at Cairo, a direct counoction with tho Southern railway system. This will enable the lino to regain a largo traffic, lu the distribution of Western products In the South, where tho more profitable culture of cot ton makes it for the Interest of planters to purchase their supplies of food from tho Northwest. It will afford a more rapid and regular means of forwarding freights to Now Orleans than by the river, snd tend to relieve us from serious delays of shipments South, via Cairo, which havo heretofore frequently been caused by a laok of river craft at that palul. There are now five linos of ocean steamers plying regularly between New Orleans and Europe, and it Is found that com can bo carried In these vessels In bulk In perfect condition throughout the year, and reach Europe with leua expense and in leso time than by way of the lakes and canals to New York. During the lust year, wo delivered at Cairo nearly 4,000,000 bushels of grain, n portion of which was reihlpxtcd upon these ocean steamers at New Orleans. There are expenditures, which by the dictates of Just economy should bo made, commencing during tho pres ent year. It Is Important to bulia additional docks at Chicago, In order to furnluh convenient ground for transfer of lumber and other freights between vpeaeis and the road. Wo need to relay considerable portions of the track with steel rails, which are, lu tho end, far more economical than those of iron. We require now facilities at Oulro fur the Increased business which the Southern connection will open up for us. It is now ton years since the shareholders have been called upon for money. During thin period dividends have regularly been paid, amounting, in the aggregate, to $93,889,407.07, and the debt has been reduced to tho amount of 14,390,600. Of the debt outstanding, $3,890,- SOO of the construction bonds, and 19,000,000 of the redemption bomlfl, will become payable April 1, 1875, You have not apart a trust or sinking fund of $2,761,- 600, which, with Its Interest, will nearly provide for tho construction bonds. leaving $2,600,000 redemption bonds to bo provided for, ' Tho residue of tho debt will 'thou consist of $2,500,000 of boud»pnyablo In 1690. It will be for you to determine whether any, aud, if inny, whatmoaauro may bo desirable'to raise tho means to moot all these requirements. ’Tho entire cost of tho properly has been $04,061,109.60. It Is now represented by a share capital of $25,600,000, and a debt, which, after deducting tho existing oinking fund, loavca $.5,020,000. making (ho aggregate $2,0:12,100.60 loss than tho actual cost of tho whole. John Neweu., President, Omoxoo, March 20,1873, ' THE BLAKE CASE. Judge Gary Allows Jfra* D* Tempera* ry iUnintounuco and 8200.f0r Logal Services* On the Blake case being called up, yesterday morning, on tbo chancery side of the Superior Court, before Judge Gary, his Honor referred to the authorities cited on Saturday. Mr. Horvoy called his Honor's attention to tho fact.that the now edition spoken of on Saturday would not bo roady till next mouth, and his Honor said bo ex pected his decision on tho point now raised wonid bo given in time to bo Included in tbo now edition, and tho counsel said perhaps tho edition was being delayed for tho opinion; after which little bit of legal joviality; at tho expotißO of tho dilatory edi tion, tho Court . finished his consideration of tbo authorities, and slowly delivered himself of his ideas on tbo matters submitted. $2,145,847.74 $1,113,320,71 Hla Honor said that tho question of tho juris diction of this Court was already settled, and there was nothing to bo said about that, Tho aot that had given tho jurisdiction provided that tho Court should make an order whoro necessary for money for tho prosecution of tho suit. SJhoro foro, it would not bo at all necessary for him to rofor to tho question of Jurisdiction, since ho had no doubt whatever on tho point. What had to bo decided was tho question as to tho moaning of tho language used respecting what money was necessary to tho prosecution of tho suit; forinstanco, was it necessary that tho plaintiff should live in order to prosecute ? and did tho term 11 money necessary to prosecute ” include money to live, lifo being necessary in order to prosecute. Mr. Horvoy thought tho tonus woro eynono mous. $ 13,710.01 $2,103,100.83 2,732,817.14 029,740.01 . Tho Court said not necessarily bo. Tho com plainant must livo. If sho intended to pros ecute, sho must livo, and if tho.law contemplat ed giving her tho moans to proaccuto, it was difficult to boo how sho could .do so without sho was secured also tho means to livo. That was how tho matter presented itself to him, so far as ho had considered it. 1 Mr. Horvoy—Sho can livo without alimony. Tho Court—But sho cannot livo without ali ment. Mr. Horvoy—Yob, but sho could got hor al iment by earning it. This was practically an ap plication for alimony. Sho (Mrs. Blake) applied to tho Court for moneys for a special purpose. Tho statute allowed alimony where tho defend ant proved to bo in the wrong, but whoro ho hod not noon proved to Imvo committed a wrong it did seem unreasonable to construe tho statute to moan that bo must pay. Tho act of 1867 gave jurisdiction to tbo Court to allow money to tho complainant for the prosecution of tho suit. It gave tho Court jurisdiction to allow her moneys' for tho purpose of living,—an ho read it,—if it could bo shown that sho was living apart from hor husband, through no fault of hor own, and if hor husband could bo proved to possess ample moans. Ho understood that to moan that she was not to bo compelled to prosecute her suit out of hor own earning, after sho had succeeded iu showing that tho defendant was guilty of ex pelling hor, or whatever tho Court should con sider good cause. If tho aot did not mean this; if tho moaning was not believed to be so clearly expressed that it was not necessary to U£o any other words, how easy it wciild Imvo boon to Imvo addod a word, and so/vlod tho matter 1 What was tho grammatical construction to ho placed on tho phrase ? It was not to give hor moneys to livo, but to give hor money to prosoouto, and, while tbo suit is in progress, tho husband shall pay tho costs. If (his Court should coustmo tho law to ko that the defendant could bo mado to pay for tho maintenance of tho complainant, tho courts, already overcrowded with litigants, would be come overwhelmed with suits for separate main tenance, and tho complainants would not, in all cases, bo found too anxious to proceed. It would bo an cosy way of passing an idle oxist cnco for a lody to many, «uui, on tho first caprice, leave hor husband, and, by representa tion to tho Court that sho had no menus of sup port, obtain a maintenance until sho .thought proper to prosecute tho suit. It would become an intolerable evil that no court should encour age. Tho oouncol represented tho case from numerous points of view, and concluded a lengthened argument by praying tho Court to bo careful in a construction that might open tho door to a groat deal of fraud and trouble. Tho Court said ho must consider tho> intent of tho statute to bo that moans for prosecuting suits must include tho means of living. Ho re viewed tho eases cited on Saturday, and thoy strengthened his opinion; tho English Chan cellor holding that it would bo time to give an order to tho wife when she presented herself at the house of hor husband, and ho oxpellod hor. If payment depended upon expulsion, it seemed that at any timo tho pay could bo stopped by tho husband ceasing the expulsion. Tho powers and privileges of married women had boon very much changed and increased; thoir earnings aro their own, and it had Iwaomo quite a serious question, although ono nob necessary to be docldoa tboro, how far thoir in creased rights might affoct this question of di vorce. It had not boon tho theory of tho law that tbo man having abundant means to support his wifo should compel hor to manual labor In order to prosecute a suit against him for divorce. It would bo no answer, iu such a suit, to say that tho woman was an able-bodied woman, and that sho must earn hor living. His Honor re ferred at considerable length to tho argument of tho counsel, simply, enlarging in detail on tho vlow of his remarks ut tho start foreshadowed, concluding by stating that at tho present stato of the proceedings, when tbo only ovidonco produced was that tho marriage oc curred, and that expulsion of tho wifo from homo had followed, and inasmuch as sho is with out mcaus of support, ho must grant hor d monthly allowance upon which to livo, which ho would placo at tho minimum, and a special al lowance for legal expenses. Tho question of how much it would bo well to allow for monthly oxpomos was lightly dis cussed, tho defendant stating that "she lived on $26 a month lost winter;’' and His Honor finally fixed tho amount at 660, that amount to bo paid immediately, and a similar amount on tho first of every subsequent month. For legal expenses, 6200 was allowed, tho Judge stating that if cir cumstances required it tho amounts would have to bo increased. ROUGH ON THE LEGISLATURE. At a regular mooting of tho Chicago Typo graphical Union, hold Saturday evening, tho fol lowing resolutions wore unanimously adopted r Wheueab, Tho Illinois Legislature has recently passed a law aimed at, and evidently intended to in jure, trade combinations, under the provisions of which It would bo unlawful for the members of any union to converse with or persuade their fellow-crafts men with luteut to induce them to abstain from un manly opposition to the best Interests of their trade, and which interferes with their constitutional privi leges as freemen; therefore, Jtenolvtd, That tho Chicago Typographical Union hereby condemns the said law, and expresses regret, that the Legislature of this Btato should thus take ac tion intended to Interfere with, and oppose, societies organized for the lawful and Just protection of their members against (ho unreasonable exactions of capi talists, and to maintain a scale of wages sufficient for the support of those who compose thorn. JUaolml, That we fully agree with tho Farmers’ Association of Livingston County in condemning tho act, as only one more proof, If, Indeed, such were needed, that legislation is at present exclusively car ried on lu tho Interest, and for the protection, of capi talists and monopolies, and mainly with a view to benefit railroad kings, while they ere allowed to plun der. abuse, maltreat, or malm the unprotected public at tbelr own pleasure and will. If, then, It is sought to make this a rich man’s country, wo believe it la high time that tho workingmen of nil classes aud denomina tions, trades and professions, creods and scots, granges Olid dubs, should unite with us for one common cause and concerted action, and wo hereby extend to all such our hand of friendship, and sincerely invite communi cations from their headquarters. THEATRICAL LAWSUITS. On tho 29th of March Jamcn 11. Bonnlo, of Ilooloy’s Theatre, attached “fifteen trunks, five boskets, and two Indian clubs," the property of Mr. Arthur McKoo liaukin, tho actor, for a debt of $l6O. The debt was incurred at Louisville, where Mr. Bonnie was manager of the llaukiu Combination. . ‘Whoa the company wasproporlng to leave that city, Mr. Ban kin informed Sir. Bonnie that ho had no money, and requested permission to - draw two drafts upon him, amounting to sll6, promising to return the money very soon. Many months passed by. THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 1873 Mr, Bonnie bocamo ono of Mr. Ilooloy s com pany, and when tho goods of tho “combina tion '' arrived ■ boro a Constable took ponßossion of thorn. Yoatorday tho matter woa tried by a jury of twelve honost and Ignorant men, before Justice Holnoa. Many prominent stage people gave evidence. A certain lady from- Iloolov’s company, whoao position is not the lowest, quite ontrancod tho foreman of tho jury, by horpor eon, her longue,and bor manner. This may have influenced the decision of tho jury or It may not: at all ovontß, tho jury rendered a verdict against Mr. Bankin for SIOO and coats. A motion was mado for a now trial. , . , , Mr. Bankin has Hoourod hlo poods by an at tftobmont bond, end is thua enabled to fulfill his engagement at Alkou’s. This is tho third suc cessful suit brought by actors against thplr em ployers, within the last week, tho others having boon by F. O. Maynard against O. K. Gardner, of the Academy of Mublo. > AN UNHEALTHY BUILDING. Dang-oroua Condition of tho Walls of tho Now Seaman’s llothol Church* In an artlolo on tho subject of building in Tub TninuNE ou Sunday, groat stress was laid, upon tbo necessity for choosing a good architect in tho orootion of a building which was to with stand tho changes of wonthor, or addition of weight in tho upper portion. Tho calculations of nu Ignorant designer, or tho dishonesty of on unworthy contractor, it was shown, wore fatal to tho stability of a building. An illustration of what wo took tho trouble to point out -is found in tho now Seaman’s Bothol Church, corner of Market and Michigan streets. Thin building fronts 100 foot on tho former thor oughfare and 70 foot bn tho latter, is four sto ries in height abovo tho basemont, and Is not constructed according to sound principles. In place of procuring the co-oporatiou of nu aclil toct of experience, tho Bov. Mr. Leonard has endeavored to incur as littlo expense as possi ble, and has superintended tho work of building in person. 110 has procured during tho winter,. such assistance as ho could among laborers and so-called briculayors, paying them scanty sums, and requiring of . thorn only such work as they wore willing to do. It is not to bo womlorod at, therefore, that persons own ing property or living in houses adjoining tho church havo boon greatly, alarmed at tho .condi tion of tho walls. Now that tho frost has quitted tho'mortar, tho walls havo leaned toward adja cent houses at au outrageous auglo. They havo cracked in various directions. They havo crum bled in tho most alarming nmuuor. They have reasserted Newton's theory of gravitation, and insist upon coming a few fcot nearer to tho earth's centra of gravity than Dr. Leonard cored to soo thorn. The neighbors have become alarmed for tho safety of thoir dwolliiigs. Tho crumbling walls overhang them with portentous angles. Thoir houses aro raised with tho apparent certainty of being crushed beneath a descending weight of poor bricks. hurrying from bods of badly mixed mortar. Altogether they think thoy aro in great danger, and tho fear is not surprising. Ono among thorn, a Mr. Welch, who owns a boarding house, with fourteen boarders depend ent upon him for thoir victuals, is especially alarmed. Tho slanting pilo of masonry threat ens hourly to bury his hostelry in an uneven and ragged mausoleum, lio would prefer some other; plmzo of ruin, and has appealed to tho Mayor for protection. Now, it becomes evident to tho most unintelli gent Too to rectitude in building operations that laborers at 60 cents a day. laying shapeless brick-bats with tho thermometer hovering about zero, cannot construct a healthy edifice. And it is equally obvious that Mr. welch and those in like peril have every reason to fcol oggriovod. Mr. Leonard is a very passable preacher, but that does not nocossarily qualify him to oroct a ohurch. There is a taloutcd journalist in town, ovon, who has assisted in tho oroctiou of a most singular structure for his paper. What are tho authorities going to do about tho Bosnian's Bethel Church, on tho corner of Michigan and Market streets ? PERSONAL. J. V. Farwoll will load the noon prayor-moot ing to-day. Col. E. M.

Hall in tbo awarding of premiums therefor, bo suspended until tbo further order of this Board. Tho Alderman said that tho Committoo had arrogated powers not given it. It had assumed it was to pass ou tbo plans; it had prevented all from seeing them except those to whom they gave tickets, and tho object of tho last resolu tion was to prevent action by tho Committoo till tho former ouo had boon acted on. Aid. Balloy looked ou tho resolution as an in

sult to tho Committee. Aid. MpOonniss was utterly opposed to tho resolution, since if would indefinitely postpone tho building of tho Court-House. Tuo joint committees had also decided to postpone tho selection of plans, and houco tho last resolution was unnecessary. This was simply a new ele ment of discord. Aid. Sobaffner denied that it would oroato dis ct. 1 . Tho present ecu so would, however. The people wore greatly excited about tho matter, and wanted to know what was going ou: There was an impression abroad that things wero net going fairly. Ho wanted tbo people, who footed tbo bill, to soo what tbo plans wore, and give their opinions on them. Ho did not believe in tho locking-up business, nor did ho boliovo thoro was an Alaorraan competent to pass on tho plans. Aid. Bailey had favored admitting tho press and public, but ho thought tho present Commit tees woro competent. If not, ho did not know •Who were. Aid. Cooy did not think tho public should bo called in yet. Lot tbo twelve plans bo selected, and the pnblio pass on them. Tho resolution was referred to tho Judiciary Committoo. Aid.

Frank, and Frank Becker. Tho reports wore concurred in. SOUTH CLAIUC OTHEET. ' The majority of tho Committee on Railroads, to whom was referred the petition praying for. the use of horses instead of steam power on South Clark street, reported that if Clark woro tho only street thus used they wouldnot hesitate to recommend tho change, but since there are many others on which steam is used to a greater extent than ou Clark street, they do not boo how they can recommend tho change, unless all other streets are included. Buoh action would not bo for tho host interests of tho people, since it would force the railroads to locate their depots outside tho city, which was on undesirable re sult. They must, therefore, report adversely. Tho minority reported, recommending that the prayer of the petitioners bo granted, since the use of steam on Clark street was dangerous to life, as accidents uore continually happening. Tho street was monopolized by the railroads to tho exclusion of other traffic, for which it was originally intended. The use of horse power would remove all difficulties. Both reports woro laid over. JUDICIARY. The Judiciary Committee reported adversely on the ordinance relative to tho Inspection o'f steam boilers, aud tho'roport was concurred in.

Tho special Oommittoo on tho Firo Limits in tho Seventh and Eighth Wards reported, recom mending that no change bo made except to mako them co-extouaivo with tho whole city. It was laid over. Aid.'Powell said that that was not really the report. He moved the Committee have a week more to report in. A horrible squabble followed, in which one Alderman called another a ecallawag. Finally, Aid. Cullortou moved to table the motion of Aid. Powell. The motion was lost—yeas, 14; nays, 21. Aid. Powell’s motion was adopted—yeas, 20; nays, 16. FIRE AND WATER.

But yesterday, on tho shank" of Mr. Stephen’s watch, tho long silence was broken by tho sound of the alaim gong, and tho register recorded that Box 885 had called for an alarm. Tho Instruraouts worked with accuracy and precision, and Oliica go may now justly claim, as another result of tho lire, a sot of fire-alarm instruments superior to any in tho country. The lire for wh|oh tho alarm sounded occurred in Goodwilllo & Bro.’s plauing-mifilng, at tho corner of Twenty-second and Loomis streets, and was caused by sparks from a shaoko-stack across tho street, which was used without a spark arrester.

When ho next came out of his house, gun in hand, Wells fired, and killed him on tho spot. Nobody witnessed tho tragedy.
