-- You don't see as many "Three Cents per Glass of Beer" signs as you used to.
-- This year more livestock was purchased by East Buffalo stockyards than in any year past.
-- Around us there are plenty of cock fights going on and the police don't seem to want to know anything about them.
-- Last week Mr. Louis Conschafter was presented with a beautiful chain from his friend.
-- Early this year the Wagner Car Company will erect more buildings.
-- The City Council has given out 15 permits for the building of frame structures here on the Eastside and on the Northeast side of Buffalo.
-- Christian Heckler has been granted a permit to open a Butcher Shop at 290 Southhampton Street.
-- Without further ado a sidewalk should be laid on Broadway from Bailey Avenue to the city limits.
-- Today work again begins in the iron foundry on Broadway and the Belt Line.
-- Deputy Streets-Commissioner Fox is constructing a magnificent building on Genesee Street near Jefferson Avenue.
-- The evening's entertainment at St. Agnes School on Monday and Tuesday night was a success in every respect.
-- Our Savings Association is currently preparing its yearly report for the State Banking Department.
-- The cost to extend Monroe Street one block from Brown Street to Genesee will cost almost $13,000.
-- The new Broadway sewage canal system will cost $14,399 if it is built in accordance to the parameters of the City Engineer.
-- The sewer system on Bailey Avenue is now complete and paving will begin in the spring.
-- Miss Schlier, daughter of the Superintendent of Stockyards, Michael Schlier, spent the holiday with her aunt, Fran Seeman, in Lancaster.
-- In the past year four streets in the city have been extended or laid-out. The total cost for this work amounts to $38,678.96.
-- There's often thievery in our dry goods stores. Certain small items have gone "missing" by persons who are seldom discovered.
-- Our old friend, Henry A. Miller, has finally reached his goal of being appointed a permanent streets inspector. And Henry will try to be a good public official.
-- Lieutenant Harry Kaiser of Police Sub-District 2 received a beautiful baton and a revolver from his friend, Mr. Marks of the New York Police.
-- In the past week 16,055 head of cattle, 70,000 pigs, 29,200 sheep and 490 horse have come into our stockyards. 5,311 head of cattle, 70,660 pigs, 21,600 sheep and 346 horses have been trasnported to other destinations.
-- Many policemen among us are of the opinion that the new charter will not be passed and that a pay increase would have to be secured by the Legislature through a separate act. However they could not convince any assemblymen to enact such legislation. That's not a good thing to hear.
-- A few days ago an innkeeper of our neighborhood received an order through a constable to appear in Municipal Court. The constable "pumped" 65 cents from the innkeeper and told him that when the trial was over he'd get his money back. Naturally the innkeeper never got it back. A fine fellow, this constable. He was an Irishman.
-- The candidates for Alderman in the 5th Ward on the Republican ticket are already at it. The incumbant, Stettenbenz, is going to run again; joining him are former Aldermen Adam Spang and Charles G. Pankow, ex-supervisor Fred. H. Yuhl, former policeman and innkeeper Cyrus Schneider, Benjamin Roedtke the Coal Merchant, and perhaps Louis P. Kirchmeyer.
-- Isn't it remarkable that although so many people have already been injured on the railroad tracks of East Buffalo there are always some who will cross them just to save a few steps. Three lines converge there, which have been the site of many accidents. This dangerous shortcut must be avoided.
