Tho argument In tho iUcdlcnl Collcso
nuisnnca case wits concluded bof oro Judge
Cox this morning, mid tho Court deckled
to deny tho restraining order, giving the
complaining parties tho right to rcnow
tho application nfter ten days. This was
for tho purposo of giving time for tho
Medical Collcgo to show whether the in
stitution cnn bo carried on without an
novanco to thu neighborhood.
Judge Cox said that tho testimony In
tltc'cnso showed that there had been mis
takes on built sides. It was admitted by
tho college people that there was at onu
tlmu cause of offense to lite censo of
smell, nud it was probable that tlicro was
alo somo offenso to sight. Tho com
plainants, however, were shown to bo
wrong In their Assertion that' olfenslvo
fumes nroso from tho burning of dead
bodies, and also ns to tho dlsagrecablo
sound of moving bodies into the place nt
The only thing that remained was the
complaint .that however careful this
branch of education Is conducted It is tin
avoidable that offensive odor.s will bo
diffused. The very agitation of tho sub
left would stimulate tlie imagination
somen lint, but after all there would be a
residuum that cannot bo accounted for In
The ovidenco ns to tho existence of
these unpleasant odors was weakened
somewhat by tho nllldavits for tho de
fcnie, tending to show that tlicie wcro no
tnipleas.int odors inside, and that there
fore none could he carried out. Still, tho
absence of bad smells inside might be
duo to their conveyance from the build
ing. When tho fact wns considered that a
good deal of capital was invested In tho
college, and that a very heavy bond, In
demnifying thu medical people, would bo
required of tlie complainants, it would
seem rather hard lo suppicss tho Institu
tion without at least giving time to dem
onstrate its innocence.

careful training. Mr. William II. Lee, tho
baritone of the company, was lu good voice,
and sang well. The singing of Miss Loulso
Melssllnger as jliuccna was of such a pleasing
nature as to call for several encores. Tho
work of the chorus was good, but tho opera

In rcsponso to a verbal request from
Chairman Hemphill to bo furnished with
rcforonco to tha laws, If any, which
authorize tho condemnation of privnto
property for sltca for public schools nnd
other municipal buildings, tho Commis
sioners hnvo submitted n lengthy report.
Thoy say tho only general laws authoriz
ing: tho Commissioners to acquire Innd
for public purposes are thoso authorizing
tho opening of alloys and laying out,
widening and chnuplug tho direction of
highways outside, of tho city limits.
i'lio only othor general law In forco In
tho District on this subject Is thu ono
authorizing condemnation of lands for
sites for public buildings, which relates
only to real estate acquired by olllcers of
the General Oovornmont. Thoy say that
the system followed In tho purchase of
school buildings aud 'other sites provided
for In tho annual appropriation hill Is
that tound in vogue when tho present
Commissioners cure Into olllce nnd
which thoy supposed wns tho way In
which such sites had always hecu bought.
They tlnd now (hat in 1881, '82 and
'811 these sites wort, ndvertised for, but
this practice was alamloned presumably
because some dlftlmltics were met then,
os now, in establM tng schools lu desir
able localities. Tlin rapid Improvement
of tho city has left few vacant lots, and
it is sometimes ncceisary to induce poo
plo to abandon homes in order that suffi
cient ground may bo obtained.
Thoy consider the picseut method tho
rhoy say It is obvious that tho criti
cisms evolved by tho application of a
system which has been in vogue for at
least six yetlrs aro due, first, to tho em
ployment of nn intermediary without
