TWO MCE LEGAL FONTS.
QEESTI03 REGARDING BUILDING
Right of Juries t Conrlct for a
Smaller Offense on a S or
A suit was began in the Chancery
Cturt yesterday, growing out cf the
late decision in regard to bnilding and
loin associations which created to
much interest all over tbe Ettte, and
which raises new and very nice
qnettion. Tbe stvle of tbe suit is
Hugh Nott and wife against tbe Irish
Ameritart Building and Loan Associ
ation. Atsociat one of this char
acter, as is well known, charge bo
much bonne upon a loan made and
tbe borrower must then pay the legal
rate of let treet npon tbe amount bor
rowed. The theory is that when the
concern is wound up it will yield two
dollars for every one invested by each
stockholder other tnuo. those who bor
row. Tbe bill filed yesterday claims
that all shareholders stand npon the
same footing, and that when the utao
ciation is wound up borrowers are en
tit'ed to "have their stock doubled in
cash, provided they pay back tbe ex
act amount of tbe loan and have paid
interest upon it regularly. Tbe point
may be more plainly stated by giving
hypothetical caee. For instance,
if A. has ten shares of $100 each and
borrows $1200, paying the Interest
thereon uulil tbe association is wound
up, be is entitled to $2000 less $1200,
the amount of his loin. The amount
of bonus paid by him does not of
course entar into the question.
Another Nice Point.
In the Criminal Court yesterday a
nfotiou in arrest of judgment was
made which raises a very nice ques
tion for the socoad time in the history
of that court. Not long since a dilli
culty occurred out on the Pigeon
Kojet rea l between Wiley, and his
son Felix, Lung and Prince Hups, all
colored. Tbe proof showed that
Kpps wss fighting or about to
fight with Wiley Lang, when
his son interfered and gave him
a fatal stab with a knife.
Father and son were both indicted for
murder, and, while Felix was convict
ed, the old mil a was found guilty sim
ply of as ault and battery, and fined
$155. Ilia attorney yesterday moved
to arrest the judgment cf the coait
upon the ground that the ollenee of
as: unit and battery in nn indiit:nent
for murder was as much a pift of it,
and merged in it, as the otlenne of
trespass is merged in that cf larceny,
and that to be found not guilty of one
is tantmount to nn acquittal of the
other. Judge Douglass overruled the
motion and sentenced Lang to the
Work-House to serve out the fine.
The case will go tj the Supreme
Court, where the question will
be finally set at rest. Tue only ether
case of the kind wit) that cf Cole, wbo
was found not guilty of the murder of
Beach au J fined $55 for assault and
bat tery. The prosecution in that cane,
however, was pever. tarried to the Su
S.OW AMI SLEET. ,
Weather Enough to Delight tbe
The weather yeeterduy was the cli
max of four weeks of tbe most unmiti
gated "weather" this community ever
saw. The wind blew very cold from
midnight until about 5 o'clock, when
it lulled and a fine snow began falling.
Tbe flakes increased in size, and at
10 o'clock fell in a white cloud. The
whole face of nature was soon covered,
and atncoa the depth of the sdow
wat about two inches. For an hoar
or more a fine drizi'e fell, changing in
tarn to sleet, which continued with
more or lees violence until 7 o'cleck,
when the eleet was again changed to
enow. The soft flakes drifted down
steadily until midnight, ' when, in
many places where it had drifted,
the snow wai nearly a foot deep.
There were few teams out, and the
street fats moved very slowly alday
and with the greatest difficulty. At 6
o'clock the cars were all alabled, and
several were pulled slowly along after
ward by four and sometimes six
mules. There wore a number of
sleighs out, though the ground was
not the best for that kind of sport.
Tbe hacks, of course, had a harvest,
bet ween the Theater and the charity
Or the Fntnona Jail at Marlon A
frlaoner'a Arm Shattered.
The sheriff of Crittenden county,
Arkansas, was in the city yetterday,
iind reported the escape and recapture
from tbe jail at Marion, the county
seat, the cay before, cf three prison
ers, one of whom wai seriously
wounded. A trio ot the toughest cus
tomers in the jail broke out, and as
they were making ofl they were dis
covered by the jailer, who grappled
with cne of them. The sen fill lasted
fnr tome time and the jailer wai
finally obliged t) release his
hold. He immediately drew his
pistol, and firing a'ter the fugi
tives brought one cf them down.
A hue and cry wai lu'sed and all
three were captured after an exciting
chase. The lellow wounded by tbe
jailer win shot in the arm, both bones
being broken by the bullet. Tbe
limb was so badly shattered that it
was considered necessary afterward to
amputate it. The sheriff had a time
of it with bis prisonera at Marion. The
jail is built of brick, with iron cells,
but a delivery takes place several
times every year. Tbe man in charge
yesterday had just been appointed to
tbe place, which was made vacant by
the discharge of bis predecessor for
allowing persons to escape.

mi UNHAVOiaT CAKKIK.
Sketch of On or tbe Hail notorious
Scosjndrela In This Section
Among the unsavory citizens who
occupied tbe prisoner' bench at the
Criminal Court yesterday was Lm Car
ter, wboee earns appears oftener, per
haps, than any other upon the dockets
of tbe police, magistral' and Criminal
Courts. His glory is now on the wans,
bathe wa; once a shining light in the
galaxy cf colored crooks aud has a
reput ition which entitles him to more
than a raising notice. Lem came to
Memphis shortly after the war closed,
at a time when 410 or $.'0 a head was
gladly paid for hands who would con
tract' for work on tbe depopulated
p'antations. Lem bad more brains
than principle, and for years be un
mercifully fleeced the overseers who
came to Memphis in search of labor.
His facility for securing hands was
remarkabU. He delivered whole train
leads at a time at the depot, receive
his per capita, and as soon as the
money was paid hied him away to a
rendezvous and awaited thi return
of his hands, who as a rule sprang
from the train at the first station,
walked back to town, met him and got
their share of the swag, hiring next
day. in the same way to some other
unsuspecting granger. If Carter was
arretted, as often happened, he had a
patent defense. He never guaranteed
the staying qua'ity of the labor be
furnished. Anotaer cf Carter's
echemes was (o pretend that he knew
ol a number of families in the Caro
lines or elsewhere who were anxious
to move to this section, obtain tickets
for them, and deliver the goods npon
arrival to some one else wbo would
Say him the cost of transportation.
Is finally became so od ous as a
labor agent that he was obliged to
abandon it, and employed his talents
then as the agent for sewing ma
chines, swindling hundreds of hard
working colored women. His last
scheme was that of a missionary, and
the charge against him yesterday was
vagrancy. That he was the king bee
of all Vrfgtnnte, there was no doubt
in tbe minds of judge or jury, but he
was so utterly filthy in person that
the court wisely concluded not to con
taminate the jail with him, and al
lowed him to go on his promise U
leave the city.

BRILLIANT GATHERING AT THE
PEABODY LAST MGUT.
Thrte Thousand Dollars Raise1 for
tbe Benefit or the Poor of
Nearly a foot of snow, a shower of
blinding sleet and a blubtering wind
availed nothing against the intense
interest felt in the charity ball, which,
after many days of preparation, took
place last night at the Peabody Hotel.
The arrangements were all completely
made belorehand, and there was no
jar, no hitch anywhere, everything
going off as merrily as a marriage bell.
The entbuaiafra with which the so
ciety people of the city entered into
the spirit of the thing was something
refreshing in a city which, like Mem
phis, whose society baj the name of
being rather ret tricted, split np into
little circles and choice coteries.
Determined that the bail should be a
snccees socially as well as financially,
they net oaly. spent liberally of their
means, but lent their presence as well.
Taken altogether, the gathering was
one ol the most brilliant ol
the season in point cf intel
ligence, culture, beauty and manliness
aud brilliancy of ceetuming. Tbe
throng wai greatest between 11 and 12
o'clock, when it is estimated that
there were not lees than 40t people
about the corridors and in the dancing
hall. Tbe music, by Arnold, lent
liveliness to the slowest of the party,
few, indeed, being able to withstand
the seductiveness f Strauss, as
he and his band interpreted it.
The supper was ample, palatable, well
served, and Mr. Galloway is to be com
plimented upon the skill with which
ho managed that ditlicult portion of
the entetUinment. At the door of
the dining-room, npon a stand, was
displayed u waiter filled with bouton
nieree, donated by Cruseman A How
ard of Evergreen Lodge, near Clarks
ville, which were sold for the benefit
of the charity fund. A floral ship
sold for the same purpose
at the Merchants hxchange
last week, and purchased by Mr. Tom
Graham, was put up by him tj be
drawn by the most -popular young
lady. At 1:30 o'clock, when the vote
was announced, Miss Carrie Grosve
nor was declared tbe victor, having re
ceived 352 votes; Miss Hensley, 2(12,
and Mies Katie Wilkerson, 'ii'l. lhe
result was the increase of the fund to
the amount of $221 60. making the
whole sum realised under the excel
lent management of Mr. Furstenheim
DISTRESS IN THE CITY.
A Case Cited by Orllcer Armstrong;
wirvta I t met uhvih.
"You stumble in upoa eome pa
thetic scenes in your rounds, do you
not," queried an Appeal man yester
day of Patrolman Armstrong, the in
telligent officer detailed to look into
the conditio! cf applicants for aid.
"Yea, indeea, ne responded. u
would make your heart bleed to wit
ness come o'f the suffering which I
encountsr in my rounds. I have) just
on me from a visit t ) a house out on
Elliott street where two women,
widows, with one child each, are liv
ing alono. They bad not a lump of
ccul, a stick of wood or a morsel of
food at the bouse. They were doth
weak and sick from hunger and cold.
That they are boneot people and will
ing t ) work if they could get it to do,
I am well satisfied. Aud there are
plenty of rates justeas deserving, and
where tho necessity tor immediate aid
is equally as great.
"In what localities do you find
mott dit tress?"
"In the large . tenement houses,
where families live cooped up in one
or two rooms."
"How muoy cases have you investi
gated to far?1"
"About 500, as nearly as I can guess.
Many applications are, of course,
grunted without investigation, when
accompanied by a sutlicient indorse
ment." Chief Davis, in speaking, of the
matter, said be had undertaken, at
the solicitation of the committee, to
O. K. orders at first, but there
were bo many applicants that his
entire time the first day was
taken up, and he had not a mo
ment left to devot to his official du
ties. Ho bad no doubt that the popular
estimation of the great distress pre
vailing among tbe poor of the city wai
warranted by the facts. Hundreds,
he sad, who were obliged to daily
labor out of doors for their meat and
bread had been unable t j turn a wheel
for more than a month, and as mott
of them lived from hand to mouth,
depending each day for their suste
nance npon what they earned that
day, the distress and real need must
be very great.

the English scientific journal Nulure,
a ccrrespondent says: "There is a
charm in the infinite variety of bird
language heard in oiitj-tropl. al forest,
whore birds ate taoit abundant, ex
ceeding that of many monotonously
melodious voices; the listener would
not willingly lose any of the many in
describable sounds emitted by tbe
sma'ler species, or the screams and
human-like cails, or soleras, deep
looming or drumming of the larger
kinds, or even the piercing shrieks,
which may be heard miles away."

It is claimed that Mr. Co' 1 bran,

the representatives of the other lines

wants to make rates through Houston
to Sherman, via Memphis, still hold

the East Tennessae, Virginia and

be made tn arrange a compromise
of these differences, otherwise it is

that the Cincinnati Southern is cot a
