WHAT HE KNOWS ABOUT THE CHARGE
"I AM AN INNOOKNT MAN."
TiriNKTNG TIIK POLTCE DID NOT "WANT TO
SEE HIM, HE TOOK A TRTr TO THE
NORTH TO MAKE CONTRACTS.
A few moments after 2 o'clock yester
day morning- the steamer Slave of California,
form Portland and Astoria, drew up in her
berth, having', among other passengers,
Thomas F. Quirk, wanted very much by
the authorities for embezzlement, and
Officer Perkinpah in charge. Quirk, was
booked at the City Prison two hours later
on seven charges of embezzlement, true
bills found by the Grand Jury, and then
given quarters in the City Prison. In the
afternoon an Alia reporter met him. lie
was .just lighting a clear Havana, when he
was accosted with the remark, "Well, Mr.
Quirk, you are back again." The blood
of the smoky docks of the city front ; the
leader of many a wild, expensive champagne
spree ; the hero of a hundred mad carousals
at the Cliff House and other resorte, and
the man who used to go into a favorit saloon
of his and throw a twenty-dollar piece at
the end of each bar, with the remark,
"Let' vS drink her up, boys ; there Is plenty
more wheret his comes from," extended his
hands and smilingly said:
"Yes, but I'll get out of the scrape in a
short time; see if I don't."
HIS TRIP TO HONOLULU.
"Well, tell me something about your
trip to Honolulu. WhvdidVou leave the
"T went to Honolulu because I wanted
to go back to my trade I'm a corker, you
know and besides things were going wrong
in politics, and J, seeing T had no chance, 1
"But you went away just about the time
Gray did, and you sent on P. P. C. cards
to your friends."
"Oh, that was all light. It was nobody's
business. IT they think I committed any
crimes they are mistaken, because 1 hold
rceipts for every cent of money L paid into
the Harbour Commissioner's office. I
never admitted my guilt to any one and I'm
not going to make a clean breast of anylh'ng
T never connnited. When J got to Hono
lulu J wont to work at my trade at $5 a
day, and worked steadily at it for ten
" What about that row you had with a
mate eoriccrning your Aifes"'
" T don't want to say much about (hat.
The affair did not amount to much. But
I'll tell you it was not my wife that Avent
down with w. My wife has been dead for
" Who is shi'V was asked.
" Oh, don't care to say anything about
it. .She did not treat me right, and so I
left her. I got tired of the hole 1 was in,
and took passage for Poi Hand, because J
saw a chance to go into my business there
and make moro money i'i a month, tilling
contracts, than I could make in Honolulu
in ten years. I did not go before the must,
as a common sailor, but paid my cabin fare
and came like a gentleman."
" Didn't you know that the authorities
AN INNOOKNT MAN.
" Know it? Didn't give it ii thought.
Didn't think they cared enough about me
to inquire, 'cause I knew all the time 1 was
an innocent man."
" You mil it have been slightly mm priced,
then, when i'.ie i oria police came aboard
and an est 'd youV"
"Well, 1 was; and 1 felt a little hurt and
piqued over it. Come to think of it, guess
I'd er stayed cu'lking Honolulu hulks for
a Utile while longer if I had. I3ul a fellow
will get in wrong ouc in a while. A good
many people unaine 1 followed the woman
who went to llo uU'lu with mc, but I
didn't. 1 got tired of her and let her go
with the male."
Quirk ganvled about the vy he was
treated in Astoria, 'nit remarked that the
inco lveniene.'s he suffered there were more
than made up on his trip down, as he met
plenty of friends on board w' o saw that he
wanted for noth'-ig. Further con venation
with him showed that he regretted ever
going into politics, and to them and the
false friendship of Gray he lays all his
trouble. The prisoner seemed to be well
posted on the convictions of Gray and
O'Brien, and talked freely of them in a dis
interested tone. Speaking of O'Brien he
remarked insinuatingly that 'f "Jack" got
another continuance of his sentence, he was
pretty sure of getting a new trial.
EXPECTS TO GET EATL.
Here the inter iew was ended, and Quirk
was left behind the bars in high hopes of
soon receiving some of his friends, who had
promised to go on his bonds, Avhich have
been fixed at M,000, or .92,000 each, in
tho following embezzlements : December
15, 1881, 2-13 j January 27, 1S82, 210 ;
April 27, 18S2, $02.75 and 201 ; Septem
27, 1S82, 198; Ociober 15, 1882, $141.
In conversation with Dist -ict Attorney
Sullivan, that gent'eman remarked that a
score or more of very clear and coi rect
charges of embezzlement were yet to be
brought against Quirk, as soon as matters
could be arranged.
Prom a pi ivate sou-ee it was incidentally
learned that the oman who Aeit with
Quirk to llonoluhi was Mollie Hayes,
who had lived with him several years,
and had two children by him. She left him
in Honolulu, because he was continually
on a spree iind abused her. She came with
the mate to this city; here they were
married, and then the couple sailed for
the Northwest. Ala California.
Changes in Nisgara's Name.
The name Niagara has passed through
many orthographical changes in the last two
hundred years. In 10S7 it was Avritten
Oniagoragh. In 1080 Governor Dongan
appeared uncertain about it and spelled it
Onniagcro, Onyagara, anI Onyagro. -The
French in 1088 to 1709 wrote it Niaguro,
Onyagare, Onyagra and Oneygra. Philip
Livingston Avrote in 1720. to 1730 Octiagara,
Jag-era and Yagerah ; and Schuyler and
Livingston, Commissionersof Indian Affairs,
Avrote it in 1720 Onjagcrac, Ochiagara, etc.
fn 1721 it AViis written Onjagora, Oniagara,
and accidentally, probably, Niagara, as at
present. Lieutenant Lindsay wrote it
Niagara in 1751, So did Captain De Lancey
(son of Governor De Lancey), Avho was an
officer in the English army that captured
Port Niagara from the French in 1750.
These pioneers may, however, be excused
in view of the fact as Avill be attested by
postmasters that some letter-writers of to
day seem quite as undecided about the
orthography of this AVorldAvide familiar
name. Niagara Falls Covricr.
Too Much Education.
A Boston miss of fomlecn died the other
day of too much study and bra:i Avork, and
the doctor Avas smart enough to know what
had k'lled her, and fearless enough to place
it on record. This Utile g"l, Avho avjis in
the grammar school, under the head of
"language" had to go th-ough oral and
Avriutcn exercises, suidy of compound and
complex: sentences, reading from texi-book
and original compositions, recitations,
Avriiing, etc. In the inalhen"uieal dcpait
ment she stud'ed powers of numbers, square
root and its common applieat'ons, mciihura
t'on of die triangle, paralk'log.rm, trapezoid
and e'-rcle; of he pi 'sin, pam;d, oyl'nder,
cone and sphere; book-keeping, etc. Then
she had to h-udy b' -toiy, foim of govern
ment," geometric problems, model and
object I'i'aAs'ng-, music and several other
mauers. And yet Boston is pro., 1 of her
public school system, and shuts her eyes to
the fact that there is too much of it.
A con temporal y mentions a case beyond
tho ordinary oculist. It is that of a young
lady Avho, instead of si pupil, has a college
student in her eye,
