H which takes In all the Oriental dlstriot north

H It Is not. however, without a certain dcirreo

H held by Pat Connolley, Abe's opponent, as long
I as thn oldest resldout can remember. Mayor
I Connolley, who Is a stanch henchman of the
H llou. Tim Campbell, mode a gallant flcht to
H retain his tltlo, and not only did he work hard,
H but he also spent his ducats as well. Bo confl-
dent was ho of success that ne waccrwl 100

Cougreulonal flitht In the district, and as Abe
had the oilier end of Mnj or Connolley's bet, ho
H wonl tli chair and tho money. It was a hot
I fight and there was considerable feeling ou
I both sides; but after the Ilradleyltes had re
H Jolccd properly. Abo was told by Joe Schulum,
H known as HradM's Mark llauna, to 'call for-
inally on Mayor Couuulley and got tho money
and chair. ,
bo one day last week ho called around to
H Major Connolle's saloon toiclalm his right.
H Abe Is a chipper, intld-mannered llttlo fellow,
with a curltnz black mustache. In bis gunlal

H tried to put him Into Jail just because some
H body was selling cigars undef his Lame nith

to greet the defeated Major Connolley beforo
he entered tho saloon. Abo had no Idea that
tho Hon. Tim who has not been genial since
M the election was In tho saloon with a crowd
of sympathizing friends when he started to go
Inside, ehe ho might hae selected another time
to put In his claim. As soon as ho had his
smite nicely arranged ho threw opon the door
and marched In. Ibe next moment tho smllo
fadod away from his countenance, and ho be
H camo pale as he saw the ret engcf ul counto
m nance of the Bon. Tim.
"There's th' Hester street renegade, now."
said one of tho sympathizers, and the gang
rushed for Abe.
he Lid ..ot watt for them, but clapped his hat
well down on his head and dashed out of the
H door. Ue ran np tho sloping sides of the Hoi-
low and over Mount Pitt lo Mark Hanna Schu-
lnm's headquarters In Grand street on the top
of the Mount, He flopped Into a chair In the
I hack rem. and It was some moment I before
n Echnlom could make him talk.
"Nab., sir: nah. sir, I wouldn't go In there
1 again for all th' Mayor's chairs and money In
I th' world." he exclaimed excitedly.
I "Why.what's th' trouble?" asked Schulnm.
II "You go down an' tee 'em. I don't care
II nothing about It no more."
II Schulum laughed, and called In Consres-
II man Bradley. Abe. the Major-elect, was
II breathing like a hunted panther.
II "You can have It, he can haToit. anj body can
have it; but 1 wouldn't take It on a gold plate
I If I have to est It that way." sold Abo poiut-
II lntr all around the room.
1 After Abe hod recovered his breath he ex
tf plained what had oocurred and declared that
jfl he would not endeavor to collect the Mayoralty
B chair and money for anything. He was final
Ill ly Induced to accompany the young Cougrcss
V) man and.Mark Hanna Schulum to Major dm-
I I nolley'a office In the csntre of the Hollow.
I I The trio took osurvey of the saloon and dls-
I I covered that the Hod. Tim and his sympathlz-
I I 1 rs had loft It. Then the trio entered.
1 "How are yon. Mayor!' said bchulum cheer-
"Oh, I'm sick In bed; don't yon see how I
am?" replied the Mayor.
""'eU. J.'m sorrr.Ior that; bnt It's all tho
fortune of war. Wo've brought down your
successor, who Is ready to take the money and
ebair. which are rightfully his."
"Well," exclaimed tho Mayor with some
show ot feeling. "I want to state that th'
money Is up an' he can hare that: but he don't
get th' chair one second before IS o'clock high
Boon on Now Year's Day. You ought to know
that the terms of all offices won on election
iay do not begin until New Year's Day."
Mark Hanna Schulum stared blankly at tho
Congressman, winked his ejo and put hlj
tonguo In his cheek.
"You're right." said he, after trolnc through
this performance. "We were a little too pro-

The appointment of Mr. William M. K.
Olcott m District Attorney of the county of
New York to succeed the lata John It. Fel
lows Is generally approved as all that could
. be desired so far as character and ability are
, concerned. Tho only respect In which it has
been criticised Is his lark of experience In tho
' criminal law. Tho office of District Attorney
In this cltv, however, like the office of Corpora
tion Counsol, has become largely administra
tive, and It Is not so Important that the chief
should ho ftblo to try cases well himself as It
Is that ho should gather about him a corps of
compotent lawj ers to whom the court work of
his department may safely bo entrusted. Mr.
Olcntt Is n grndnnto of the College of the City
1 of New York, and of tho I.nw School of Co
lumbia College. Ho was admitted to prac
tice In 188 J. and Is now 34 years of nge. Under
his appointment by Gov. Morton ho will hold
offlco until tho ond of 1807, his successor being
jhosen at the general election next year.
In commenting upon tho nppolntmont of Mr.
Olcolt, tho Ftenlnp; Po! laments "the ab
sence of a rospnstablo criminal bar" hero, and
says: "The District Attorney ought to be
chosen from the leaders nf such a bar If we had
one, but we havonot. Our leading lawjors
eschew criminal business. In England they
tako it, and are therotoro eligible for Important
offices In tho administration of criminal Juris
prudence" This Is BUtlngtho case rather
strongly. Men like Hcnjamln F. Tracy, John
E. Parsons, Ellhu Hoot, V. Ilourke Cockran.
George Dllss, and many other lawyer! of high
standing In this city appear from time to
time In Important criminal coses. Of course.
It Is true that a great majorltyy of such cases
aro defended by attornejs of no particular
prominence. Tho Elinlno Post suggests that
our men ot ability and ambition recoil from
porsonnl contact with prisoners, while In
England tho counsel derive all tholr knowl
edge of such casts from the attorney. It Is
also to be noted that tho emolumints of ordi
nary practlco In tho criminal courts In this
country aro qulto Inconsiderable compared to
thoso of civil practice.
All efforts In Congress to Increase the pay of
tho Fedorsl Judiciary seem doomed to defeat.
Judge Alfred C. Coxe of the Northern Dis
trict of New York, nbD lives at Utlca. Is fre
quently called upon to hold court In Buffalo
for weoks at a time In order to try Admiralty
cases. An offort to prov Ido a per diem com
pensation of 510 for tlmo when thus engaged
has recently been made by the Hon. Charles
Daniels, ono of tho Representatives In Congress
from Erlo county, who was for many years a
Justice of the Supreme Co"rt of tho State,
and a Gcnoral Term Justice In this city. Tho
bill for this purpose, how over, was received
a ith so little favor by the Judiciary Committee
of the House that Its promoters determined to
withdraw It for tho presont rather than have
It reported adv ersely. Tho truth Is that the
regular salaries of all the Federal Judges In
this State ought to bo Increased, and then
there would be no need ot legislation like this
for particular localities.
The coming retirement of Judge Jackson B.
Dykman of White Plains from the bench of
the Supremo Court In the Second Depart
ment of this State was made the occasion of
special observance at the annual dinner of the
Brooklyn Bar Association on Monday. The
Judge goes out of office at the close of the pres
ent j ear by reason of having attained the con
stitutional limit of ago. He was first elected
to the bench in 18T6, being tha candidate of a
convention of bolting Democrats who refused
to support Judco Abraham B. Tappen for re
election, and also receiving tho surport of tho
neoubllcans. He was chosen for n second
term without opposition. His retirement
will leave Judge Cullen the sonlor Sunremo
Court Justice In length of service In the Second
Judicial district. It Is believed that Judge
Dykman will ask the Governor to allow him
to perform Judicial service under the provision
of the new Constitution as long as he Is en
titled to draw his pension.
"The announcement is made that Mr. C.
Stuart Pattcrsoi has been elected President
of the Union League of 1 htladelphia. Mr.
Patterson Is a well-known and able lawyer,
being the author of a work on railway acci
dent law. and a shorter treatise upon Federal
restraints on Slato action, both of which are
nsuful law book. He Is a cousin of Judw
Edward Patterson of this city. Charles God
frey I.rland (Hans Breltmanu) In his amtablo
and interesting "Mtmnlrs." tells a curious
story about Mr. Patterson, who served with
him In a Pennsylvania battery when Lee
came up to Gettysburg. "There was In our
battery." he says, "a j ounc gentleman named
Stuart Tatterton. noted for his agreeable, re
fined manners. Ho was the gunner of our
cannon No. 2. Wo had brass Napoleons. At
the distance of about ono mile the rebels were
shelling u. Patterson brought his gun to
bear on theirs, and tho two exchanged shots
at the same lnstont. Out of tho smoke sur
rounding Patterson's 6un I wv a sword blade
fly perhaps thirty feet, and then himself borne
by two or three men. blood flowing profuely.
The four fingers of his right hand had been
cut away clean by a piece of a shell." Mr.
Leland mentions an Incident in a somewhat
similar character which he had witnessed years
before In a German duel whero s sword was
hurled out of the hand of one of the combat
ants. ft will surprise many persons to lenrn that
there Is ono State In tho Union which permits
the death penalty to bo Inflicted byshuotlng.
That Stato is Utah, tho newest of a'l. A mur
derer named Patrick Joughlin was lawfully
shot to death In Klcli county on Tueiday last
by a filing squad compose of six deputy sher
iffs. Tho law. which Isdeilved from the pre.
vlous Territorial legislation on tho subjeot,
allows tho convict t choose whether ho will bo
hanged or shot. Tho validity of ths stutute
was questioned some years ago In the Supreme
Court of the United SUfs. but It was upheld.
Under tho amendment of 1800 relating to
anneals to the Court of Appeals, a Judgment In
a suit for negligently causing death can only
be rovlowed by tho Appellato Division of the
Supreme court, unlesathat tribunal or one of
tho Judges of tho Court of Appeals grants an
order permitting the cao to be carried lo the
Courtlof App'als. This amendment has causod
some chnngo In tho practice in cases which In
volte a Federal question, and may thoreforo
be appeoli'd to the'Suprcme Court of the United
States. The defeated party must first apply
to tho Appellate DUinlon for leave logo to the
Court of Appeals at A.bany. If this applica
tion Is denied, ho must make a similar request
of! one of the Judges of the Court of Appeals,
and It is only upon the dental of this second ap
plication that he can go to a ,Iuetl:e of the
Supreme Court of tho United States and de
tain n writ of error, which will take tho case
before tho full bench of that court In Wash
ington. Mr. Juttlce Pecklmm granted such a
writ a fow date ago In a Brooklyn ense, In
whieh tho defence was that tho peison killed
was guilty ot contributory negligence becaueo
he was violating the 1 cderal navigation laws
In the nianugemont of a llttlo steamer, which
was run down by a ferryboat.
Tho question whether a cause of notion for

Smith Collego Is to attempt this year to fill tho
gap In the year's amusements ot New York
made by tho enforced withdrawal ot the Har
vard Hasty Podding Club's faroe. Smith, how
ever, as Is fitting under the circumstances,
offers the classics where Harvard offered farce.
The class of 1805 at Smith Is to repeat Its
graduation play, "A Midsummer Night's
Drcnm.'l in Carnegie Hall, on Jan, 2. The
profits will be added to tho fund for n students'
building on the campus at Northampton.
Every year, In commonccmont week, the
graduating class of Smith Collego presents a
piny, In the preparation of which tho class
spends the greater part of the last term. Ma
terial for a dramatlo cast Is plentiful In Smith
classes. The college has always takon to the
drama for Its serious dissipation, just at men's
colleges take to heavy athletics.
Time was not so many years ago when each
of the dormitory cottages had one play or more
each year. Then there were class plays at the
festival seasons peculiar to the Institution and
plays by the literary societies, to say nothing of
the play of tha year, that of the graduating
class nt commencement.
A enr or two ago tho faculty was moved to
restrain the dramatlo fervor of the Smith un
dergraduate by severely limiting the number of
plays to be given and by stipulating that no
more than $10 or S15 or some such rldloulously
small amount should be spont upon the scenery
and costumes. Instead of permitting the
girls of each "houco" to bring out a play
on any Saturday night that was not pre
empted by somo othor house, the faculty
determined that each house might give Just one
play ovcry two years. There was woe on the
campus after the publication of this edict, It
was told by unsympathstto Amherst visitors
that the tear-stained carpot of President Soelye's
office was hung out to dry twlco a day during
this trying season. But the faoulty triumphed,
as faculties havo a way of doing. The wisdom
of the new regulations became apparent Im
mediately. The decrease In quantity brough
about a remarkable Increase of study and care
In tho preparation of plays. The bmlth faculty
has alw ays encouraged a certain amount of dra
matlo exercise with the belief that under proper
supervision such work provided not only an
innocent method of eutertaliiment, but afforded
an opportunity for a voluntary working out of
the artistic and literary tendencies Inspired by
It Is a poor piny that has no man In It. The
young women ot bmlth College raced the prob
lem dutifully and serlouslj, and. It Is said on
purely feminine authority, that the men's part
aro enacted with great fidelity and with no
awkwardness caused by unaccustomed gar
ments. Men nrn not permitted to witness the
lerformanceof plays requiring the assumption
of modern costumes that Is to say, men gener
ally speaking. Not even elderly and married male
numbers of thefocultj are admitted lo the gym
nasium hall on such occasions. The most austere
among them has been unable to ece that any
coarsening of truo femininity l likely to result
from such Impersonations It Is said that once,
a long time nun, a New York newspaper (there
was oulj one Journal of the kind at the time
sent one of Its affuble young women "Journal
ists" to "expose" the baseball games nlayed by
the students of Smith College. The young wo.
man went to President beelje and asked this
" Does not the playing of baseball on the
Smith College campus prove that even the college-bred
young woman Is dominated bythein
u -4itclr tendency toward masculinity?"
The President, it Is said, led the way to a spot
overlooking the "back campus," where a chat
tering mob m lawn dresses were being enter
tained by a young person who sawed the air
with a fence picket and another j oung person,
ten paces nwa. who was valnlj endeavoring to
cause a tennis ball to approach within striking
distance of the first.
"if that be niacul!ne." quoth the President,
"make the most of It." Whereupon he straight
way sulked back to his office alone.
It Is gathered from those who have been
privileged to watch the Smith undergrad
uate walk the stage In troupers, that tbe
moral holds good In the drama as well as In
athletics. In Shakespearean plavs. however,
and In adaptations or Greek and Latin plays
there is no difficulty in devising costumes for
the male characters that shall tree actors and
audience from all embarrassment, and the long
and careful tralnlug. aupervUed by a profes
sional coach, quite does away with any Inade
quacy of earrings or uf vehemence.
The production of "A Midsummer Night's
Dp-Mn ' by the class of lHOI, which Is to bo re
v lved at arnegle Hall mirked the adoption of
a higher standard In college dramatics than had
been thought possible of attainment. The spirit
of the drama itself, merry, playful, nnd per
vnded with the mystic and the maglcnl,Mevel
oped unlbonght-ot possibilities in the hands of
young women who had absorbed all the
culture that foor years of college could

expression. This was supplied by the pro
fessional trainer. The fairy chorus was se
lected from tho girls In the class who bad the
voices best fitted to Interpret Mendelssohn's
musical setting. The cost now rehearsing for
tho Carnegiu Hall production Is the dame prao

The Substitutes for UaalaB That the Girls
Most of the Smith College freshmen, like all
other college freshmen when they come to col
lege, are Ignorant of parliamentary rules, so
that their first class meeting Is a happy-go-lucky
affair. To draw up a constitution and
elect officers Is an appalling task to them. The
present senior class In Smith, which has been
distinguished for ltd brightness throughout Its
course, devised a scheme to expedite matters.
They thought It would be easier to handle the
class If they bad a regular leader, so they at
once elected their President, Later they drew
up a constitution creating the office. The
sophomores heard of this departure from regu
lar parliamentary procodure somehow the
sophomores always do get wind of what goes on
In tho til st meetings of the freshmen and they
laid It up for the sophomore reception.
Of course, Smith College girls don't haze tbe
freshmen. They aro very good to them, but
they hate at least one opportunity to remind
the freshmen that they are still In a state of
greenness, and this opportunity is the reception
given by the sophomores to the f rethmon about
the middle of October. All the Ignorant ques
tions of tholotter. all their verdant actions are
carefully remembered for that occasion, when
the freshmen are pleasantly reminded of them.
Tho incident of class procedure was brought to
the freshmen's remembrance when each re
ceived a small, legal-looking roll labelled "Con
stitution," the entire contents ot which was a
'Ibero was another grind that year. It Is a
regulation of Smith Collegu that when astudent
tor any reason decides to drop a study she must
take n card to that effect, nlgned by her class
officer, to the professor In that study. A frish
mnndropplug a study was asked for her card.
"I-I-haven't any but written ones," alio
atninmered. "I'm going to have some engraved
at Christmas." bo her class received ul the
reception vicltlng cards neatly engraved with
"Mlsn I rehinuu," on which was written tbe
request, " Please preent to tbe cluss officer."
'lhn next entering cluss received a college
edition ot "Don't." gotten up in imitation of
tbu book of ellquetli) of that name, although,
of course, on u much smaller scale, 'I ho full
title was "Don't: or. Direction1) for Avoiding
Improprieties in Conduct and ( ommon Lrrora
ofbpeech," The note ul the opening was;
"Manv of the rules given In this little bunk

to ask n freshman whloh she is taking.
"In reply to the question, ' Aro you literary ?'
the answer ' yes,' not ' yes. a little,' Is expected."
Under tho head ot " General Information"
comes the advice I
"Many demands aro made on a freshman's
leisure, but n sufficient amount of time should
be sot nslde for recitations, however great the
pressure of other business." Of course, there
are many other valuable suggestions, tho full
point of which could not be appreciated outsldo
of i ollege.
This method of "grinds" nt Smith Is fully
as efficacious as hn7lng In subduing the pride
nnd dispelling the verdancy of freshmen. Be
fore the girls have been long at college they
get Into tho swing of parliamentary procedure,
and can conduct a meeting as well as any ono.
So the class meetings are a means ot education
In a very worthy line. The business conducted
relates chiefly to election of officers, selection
of class pins, arrangement of social affairs, nnd
In the senior year, the details of commencement.
xo jit ace of nnvAvr.Txn miles.
Ills Hhortaste Is Known to He eVSO.OOOand
liny Ileaeh BIOO.OOO.
nosTON, Dec, 10. At a meeting of tho direc
tors ot the Boston 8afo Deposit and Trust Com
pany, held to-day, F. C. Miles, who is a fugitive,
was removed from the office of treasurer, and
George E. Goodspred was elected assistant
treasurer. A committee of tho directors Is now
engaged upon an examination ot tho affairs ot
President F. M. Stone says tt Is impossible at
present to state exactly the loss whloh tbe com
pany will suffer through tho misconduct of Mr.
Miles. The lots will not Impair the capital sur
plus, amounting to two millions of dollars.
The police have been looking for Miles and
watched bis place of residence nil last night,
but have been unable to find htm and believe
thut he has left the city. It is admlttod that
tho amount embezzled by Allies ts at least
150.000. and may reach 100.00O. The Ameri
can Surety Company ot New York Is ou Mr.
Mllcs's bond for SM0.00O.
It has been generally known that Miles has
been Interested In tbe sale and purchoso of cer
tain stocks, but no wrongdoing was suspected.
He resided at 340 Beacon street, but his mode
of living has been considered lu no wle extrav
agant or Inconsistent with his means. For some
time he hai Intrusted his stock speculations to
throe hmkersgc firms In this city. His transac
tions with ono of these firms came tn the ears
of the officials nf the company, and au exam
ination of the Treasurer's accounts was made,
resulting In convincing proofs of blsdlsbonesty.
President F. M. Stone Immediately called the
latter to account, and Mr. Miles Is snld to hare
acknowledged his guilt. President Mono de
cided that no action should be taken until the
matter should be brought before tho directors'
meeting called for to-day. Mr. Miles meanwhile
bolng allowed bis liberty, but relieved of his
duties to the company.
MATE BJIAM'S TllIAH GOES OX,
Ths Court Iterates to Discredit tha Testl.
mony of Witness llrown,
Bostox, Dec. 10. In the audience this morn
ing at the trial ot Mate Ilram for the famous
Herbert Fuller murders were many of the
prominent members of the Boston bar, who
had listened with Intense Interest to the next
move In the case, which was a request by the
Govornment that the witness. Brown, be re
called, In order to give htm an opportunity to
explain the Itottsrdam alleged perjurj Incident.
Counsel had no objection, and Brown, In reply
to qnesttons asked by Mr. Hoar, said that at
Rotterdam ho was taken sick, and Imagined
that everybody wanted to do htm injury. He
knew nothing until fourteen davs afterward,
when he awoke In a hospital. Ihey told him he
had been crazy, that he fired a shot at a man.
but that everything had been forglveu. lie did
not toll about tho shooting yesterday, beeause
ho did not know be had shot a man : he had only
been told that, nnd did not know It himself,
Mr. French, for the defence, asked for au ex
amination of the sanity or the witness. Mr.
Hoar objected to this course of procedure be
cause the Issue raised was not material. The
court retired for ten minutes, and In an opinion
delivered by Justice Webb denied the motion.
The Jury were recalled. 1 be trial went on.

Mngletrato Kudllch, tn Jefferson Market
Court.yesterday, censured Police Captain Chap
man ot the West Thirtieth street station, and,
as tho Captain was not In court, the Magistrate
told two of his detective, O'Donncll and llolL,
to tell their superior officer what had been said,
O'Donni 11 nnd Hell sworo out a warrant on Fri
day for the arrest ot Patrick N'Oelll, a restau
rant keeper nt 1453 Uroadway, on n charge of
maintaining a disorderly house, Tho warrant

being signed by Magistrate Kudllch, was sealed.
No ono else In the court knew of the Issuance ot
Tho raid wns mndo on Friday night nnd
O'Neill was not arrested, as he was not In the

and John Wlckham, tho night manager of tho
placo, were also arrested. When the prisoners
were brought to Jefferson Market Court yestor
day morning. Clerk Williamson casually asked
O'Donnell why O'Neill had not been arrested.
" He'd boon tipped off about the warrant,"
This mado Wllllamton angry, and ho reponted
the speech to Magistrate Kudllch. When ths
prisoners were arralcned Magistrate Kudllch
alo asked why O'Neill bad not been arrested.
" Cnpt. Chapman told me to tell you tho place
had been tipped ofT." said O'Donnell.
" Otllcor,'' said the Magistrate sternly, " I will
allow no such insinuation to be made. Nobody
knew of the warrant but Clerk Williamson and
myself. No such Imputation enn bo mnde against
nnbody connected In any way with this court.
Nobody from this court could have tipped them
"The Captain told me to say It," stammered
" 1 had no reference to you In whnt I said,"
said Magistrate Kudllch. " It's your Captain
Pm talking about, and 1 want you to tell him
whnt I have snld. Oxer in lscx Market wo
had a man who was alw ays most mysterious In
swoarlng out warrants against disorderly
houses. Ills namo was Iteiiuer. and he Is In
Slug blng now for extortion. 'Ihrse sevon
prisoners are discharged; they have done
Cam. Chapman wont to court later. He did
not say nnj thing tn Magistrate Kudlloh, but
went to Clerk Williamson nnd told htm that he
had meant to cast no reflections on him by say
ing that O'Netl'ls place had been warned In
"Somoof my officers are talking too much."
said Cnpt. Chapnsan. "Why, even the matron
at thuhtatlon knew that the raid was going to
come off. Everyplace I went during the early
evening I heard of It."
