The seizure yesterday afternoon by
Constable Swinburne ot tt'o household and
office furniture In No. 1848 W joining
avenue belonging to Mr. Davenport, in
satisfaction of a judgment for rent to the
amount of $G00 due Thus. J. Fllher & Co.,
acting as agent for the owrcrof the prop
erty, was followed this morning by a
complete despoliation o'f the houee.
At 11 o'clock this morning, in the midst
of a heavy rainfall, a large force of work
men were busily engaged in removing the
personal belongings and furniture of Doug
lass It. Thompson, nephew and ward of Mr.
l).icnport, and who made hU home there.
Tho less -valuable furniture was uncere
moniously carried out and placed In the
hugo express wagons. Hut the paintings,
curios, bric-n-brac. and articles of value
were carefull) packed in barrelsand boxes.
The corn-table's seizure made but little im
pression as the entire four story house ot
unusual depth was elaborately and expen
sively furnished. Outside, a large rubber
tree and palm guarded the entrance.
The down-pouring ralu, the excelsior
bestrewn Lalls, tile barrel and box covered
sidewalks, the yawning vans, and the un
artlsnu I.tlKirers passing-two and fro com
bined to form a reasonably fair picture of
desolation. JobnO. Knox personally super
intended the operations of removal.
A messenger boy pedaled a wheel up
the hill with about the same haste that
Ulp Van Winkle manifested In returning
to his normal conUltiim. He wa'ted at
the door, and was later informed that
there was no nply.
Mr. Thompson said to The Times re
porter that he did not care to say any
thing, as the whole situation had been
pretty well gone over and the subject ex
hausted. He caid that Mr. Davenport rented the
house at No. 1848 Wyoming avenue, but
only occupid It at rare intervals when
visiting iu the cltv. He had no furniture
or other effects in the house, except office
fixtures and his bedroom and sitting room
THIS WAS EXEMPT.
All of the other furniture, ornaments
ond'.-.rtielCB of value, said Mr. Thompson,
formed a portion of his mother's estate and
could not In touched for Mr. Daveniwrt's
debts. He was moving it himself in order
,to vacate the premises. The "For Rent"
'placards of Fisher & Co. were already
posted over the first floor windows.
Mr Thompson i-aid that Mr. Davenport
was not expected in the city twl iy. and so
Ifjr as he knew was not-coming. He could
'not say whatactfon lie would taketoward
recovering the property seized by the con
stable He knew nothing, lie said, of Mr

WAS ALHENSEY'S BROTHER. -
The two checks drawn on the Garfield
National Bank, of New York, signed by
John I Davenport, were not cashed, as pre
viously stated, by AlHcnfey, but by Walter
1L Hcusey These checks were for $00 and
$57 and dated, respectively, on April 25
They were pronounced wordless by
the bank, and neurlv four months has been
spent In securing their redemption, which
was but recently accomplished.
Mr. Hensey states that he has at differ
ent times cashed more titan $2,000 worth
of checks as a matter of accommodation
to Mr. Thompson The two checks re
turned as worthless were shown The Times
reporter. They are signed "John I. Daven

phatic and Indignant letters were writ

and almost nn equal number of replies re

is given for delaj in pa) ment. He alleges

THEY" GET DAMAGES.
e Colo Decides the Schooner Tc-
Judge Cole this artemoon delivered his
opinion in the suit In admiralty of Charles
Burnett, former owner of the schooner
Ellen Tobin, against Charles G. Smith,
jr., for damages claimed by the boat
owner against the latter. The court sus
tained the claim or the petitioners and ap
pointed James G. Pnvne a special commis
sioner to carefully examine Into the case
and assess da magi's.
Tho Smiths were lessees of wharf prop
erty in GenrKetown that they re-nted fur
loading purpose!.. It was consequently
claimed that they invited the schooner
into their dock. She was there loaded
with crushed stone Intended to be used
in repair work at Fortress Monroe. After
400 tons of stone, or about two thirds of
the vessel's capacity, had been loaded, the
boat settled down on a rock in the harbor.

a la borer by the Cranford I'av lug Company,
was stabbed and almost instantly killed
yesterday afternoon, aliout 4 o'clock, at
the corner of Ninth and 0 streets, by James
Urown, u. fellow luliorer.
The murderer was captured by Police
man Stroman after a long chase and
lodged In the Second precinct station
The murder, as told In tho Morning Times,
was the result of a quarrel over a nickel
which Henry Brown had iioolcd along with
four other laborers, who were working wltlr
him, for the purpose of buying beer. James
Brown was delegated to "rush the growl-e-r,"
and on his return failed to bring the
lieer and refused to return Henry's money.
This so angered the man that he picked
a quarrel with James Brown, which finally
ended In the unfurtunate stabbing affray.
After James had plunged the knife Into
his assailant, he ran up Ninth street toward
P. closely followed by Henry, who after
hurling several brick Iu to at tho fleeing
mau, fell to the ground, and died shortly
from Internal hemorrhage.
The murderer denies that he intended to
kill Henry, claiming that the quarrel was the
result of a practical joke.

A millionaire must be allowed to have
some amusements; and If be is dio6ed
to amuse himself in ways that w ould not
be at all amusing to tbe bis public made
up of men who are cot millionaires, he
must certainly be accorded the privilege.
One of Chicago's greatest (tockmen and
packers was once a dealer in junk, and it
is Eaid that he even went about gathering
old iron himself Now he is reputt-d to be
-worth 323,000,000, aLd rumor fays that
he has his property in inch thape that he
could, if he chose, raise a larger fum in cash
than any other nun in Chicago.

out one of the sticks and wlti a b'g, old

A comedian in a Frencli theater once
made a great bit out of a nainlul accident.
One day, while indulging in a bit of horse
play ou the stage, he hit his head violently,
entirely" an accident, against one of the
pillars of tbe scene on the stage. On hearing
the thud everybody uttered a cry. "So
great harm done." said thecomedian.'Just
baud me a napkin, a glass of water, and a
salt-cellar." These were brought and he
sat down, folded the. napkin in the form ot
a bandage, dipped it in theglassand e-mptled
the ia!t-cellar on the wet part. Having
thus prepareel a compress according to
prescription, and when everybody expected
be would apply it to his forehead, he
gravely roe aud tied it around tl.e pillar.
The effect of his action was such that every
one set him down as the readiest and
wittiest man in his profession Harper's
