WHAT THE POLICE THINK OF
. THE FBI SENT JUDGE.
Tbe ( balD-Uane Rosg VTr1by and a
Put rtl man Mni Moral
"II this tliicn keeps on much long
er it won't be reeeary to kefp ny
bsoka," remarked tbe genial Sjlt
mareb, clerk at tbe SUtion-Ucuse,
"And wby not?" inquired an Ar
"We have a Police Judge tow who
goei in he'7 lor moral suasion," be
said. "I don't viunk I have bad half
a doc?n mittimuees In is many dayf.
Capt. Lee, wbo baa been acting in
President Hadden's place ever since
bit depatture lor Biloxt, lets tHera o&
with m lecture for liuht and 11 ret of
fenses, but when they tome back a
second time, or when the prisoner at
tbe bar is charged with any offense
which really repreheistble, he Rives
it to him from the shonlder.
THB P.1LICI COCBT,
Clerk McNulty, who keeps the
docket in tbe Police Court, said the
receipts were dropping oft considera
bly. The foi felts wore scooped in
regnlarly, but Capt. Lee thought a
good deal and a long time btf are be
imposed a fine, but when he did, be
paid, it was usually a good one. Mr.
McNulty complimented the Jug,
however, upon bis eloquence and'
thought tbat the scamp who trans
gretsid again after one of (.'apt. Lee's
eloquent speeches from the bench he
must be a reprobate indeed.
rf the chain gang, who dropped into
the Station lloute while Judge Lee
was being discussed, broke in on the
conversation by bringing down his
great palm upon the deek with a force
which jarred tbe ink out of the bot
tles. "This thing is getting seriou,"
he declared. "The weather is pretty
and we ought to be doirg lots of work
on tbe streets. There is plenty of it
to do, and we ought to be making a
show. The police have done their
duty. They have brought in a lot of
big, strong fellows, who would have
helped thing! along mightily. But
Capt. Lft don't seem to grasp the situ
ation. He lectures 'em and leta 'em
go, when they might just as well be
fixing np the streets." Foreman Jewel
refused to look at the matter any
other way. He wanted men; he
couldn't hire them in the nature of
things, and he wanted the Police
Judge to turn them over to him.
A NAMKLB68 POLICEMAN.
A patrollman, who shall be nameless,
threw up botn hands and declared in
accents of despair tbat the town would
eurely go to the bow-wows if "this
thing" was nit stopped. ' I don't see
auy use in bringing anbody in, I
don't," be declared. "Catch me pick
ing a galoot out of the gutter and lug
ging him a mile or two through the
streets only to have him turned loose
on a defem-eltsj c .immunity next
morning. What do they care fcr
lectures 7 Why, they go oil to the
nearest saloon, take another drink
and have a good laugh at our expense.
I'm plum disgusted, I am." This
was not tbe general view, bow
evr, the police taking aides some
with freemen t Hadden, others witb
Vicp-President Lee, but they all agreed
that the absent Judge would not be
benefited ny tbe sea air to any appre
ciable extent if ha knew how many
good $2 bills were slipping by and not
a band reached out lor them.
How Good Frldiiy Will Be Obacrvesl
st Ibe L!Moyn Normal
The telegraph has lately given ac
counts of strikes on the part of some
of the pupils in some of tbe Eastern
schools, but it remains for a colored
normal school in Memphis to discount
tbem all in that line.
Yesterday tbe students in tbe nor
mal Department of LeMoyne Normal
Institute elected an entire faculty of
twelve teachers from their own num
ber wbo to-day are to assume the man
agement of the school in all its depart
ment) and clauses.
This is an observanre kept up in the
above institution on one day ot eai:h
year, and Good Fiiday is tbe day
choat-u lo accommodate these who
may desire to vit-it from other institu
tion not in region on tbat day.
Tbe fact tha' und r this arrange
ment, the regular tcncliKrs seldom go
ing into the bnildirg at all, the
work of the school all goes on quietly
and as successfully as on other days,
speaks not a little in praise of tbe eat
nestnesscf tbe pup la and tbe com
pleteness of the dnclipine they are
under. The practice is one to he com
mended, as showing these results and
as cultivating a spirit and habit of fclf
control ou the part of young people in
The following students were elected
to ant as a student faculty:
President and teacher of natural
science, M. W, Lawson.
Preceptress and teacher of grammar
and literature, Mis? Georgie Anderson.
Teacher of history and geography,
Mif s Alice Jones.
Teacher of mathematics, Moses II.
Teacber of music, Miss L!zz:e Boyd.

Tbe Situation About leh awd
Cipt. C. B. Sears, who reiently left
Memphis to inspect the caving levees
about Salem, near Raleigh landing,
cays that while there is no immediate
cause for alarm, thsre is tn encroach
ment steadily in progress, though he
does not think the levee will cave in
until the water falls within the banks,
when it will surely cave in. How
ever, to make sty a surety, he au
thoriasd Mr. Robert Nicholson, a
planter at that place, ti construct a
rtinaround levee far enough back to
stiml. He author'ied work to he
done to tha amouut of JUOOO. This
piece of levee was constructed by the
government and is under the super
vision of the government engineer in
charge of tbe district.
Mr. James Murphy wrote a day or
two fince to Maj. H. B. Richardson of
New Orleans as follows:
Deab Sib Knowing the interest

H Olvoree Nabalanr or
Isaac Smith, who killed his wife's
paramour last August, josterday en
tered suit for divorce in tbe Circuit
Cooit. Tbe bill states that Isaac and
hia wife Martha were married in Tip
ton county in 1873, and lived together
upon amicable terms until last spring,
when he bad good reason to believe
her unfaithful. OneObas.Crizer was
in tbe bahit of visiting his home dur
ing hia absence, and frequently re
mained I hers alone with his wif until
a late hour. Tbe intimacy between
tbem was subject of gossip in the
neighborhood in which they residod,
( nd he at last obtained pr jof of it bv
obtaiLiug a letter full of the most
amorous sentences and plainly show-
in? an improper connection between
them. 1 he letter watt written by
Cr'zer to Mr. Sonilb, and he ha i some
d flicully in obtaining it from her.
Tbat furnished tbe first positive
evideuce a;aiunt ber, though be ha I
good reason to suspect her before, one
of the causes being her coldness to
him immediately f:er one of C izct's
visits. His situation became t last
intolerable, and he slew the det trover
of his peace and happinees, believing
he had a right to do s before God and
man. For this crime he was tried
nd acquitted. Since the fatal day
he has ceased to live with her or to
have any dealings whatsoever with
her, but she bas been comforted by
the embraces of a number of other
men, wboie names relator declares
himself ready to give if required.
Lately she removed to Arkansas, tak
ing with her their two children,
Junie, aged, ten j ears, and Eva, a zed
seven ywr. He does not think it is
proper that she should bave ttm cus
tody of the children, aud asks the
court to give them to him.

most pitishle case lb it t as yet come
under tbe notice of thp Liu a -y Com
mittee was discovered hut wek in
F.iun'eindale, Adams comity. Jacob
Miller, a wealthy farmer, wi- found
living vrithbis eight indocile Mldren.
The mother of this miherhbl) fam
ily lnd died several yurs ago
insane. Tbe poor woman had given
birth to eleven children bi tween 1 8(10
and 1874, and not one of her numer
ous offspring wbs poee.'Sfcdof a sound
mind. Nine children are still living,
one daughter possessed of a limited
amouut of intelligence having bten
married. The remaining eight are
card for by their, fntbet in 11b hbusn,
which was in a most deplorable
condition when Secretary Ourt
and a member of the c.nomi'tie
visited tbe place. Five of the children
are driveling Idiots past all hope of im
provement, while tbe other three are
somewhat bright. The eldrst child
is the woret of all, scarcely possessing
the instinctt of an animal, lie aits at
the window all day long, and from the
constant swaying of his body bas
worn a bole in tbe window-sill
where his head touches the wood
work. Mr. Miller expressed a deep af
fection for his unfortunate children.
He said that they were well fed and
aeemed bappy, though he was not
able lo keep them well clothed on ac
count of their filthy habits. It was
learned tbat Mr. and Mrs. Miller were
blood cousins of the first degree, and
to this fact alone the members of the
committee attributed the imbecility of
their offspring. The father, however,
had no explanation for the matter,
and be looked upo i the allltction as a
stroke of Providence. A singular
phase nf the affair is that the commit
tee can find no legal way of reaching
the rase. Two daughters, twelve and
fourteen year J cf vge respectively, and
one of thesons are capable rf improve
ment if placed in a proper iuetltut'on,
but as Mr Miller is well-to-do, own
ing 200 acres c f land, and the children
not insine, the committee cannot in
voke the iuHanity laws nor make the
children a f-'tate charge.

Brilliant Tlctory of the Memphis
Jilne Over the Crack Sa
Tennessee got cn top of Georgia
yesterday, and pvo her a dose of (he
medicine ihs administered to us last
week. All the Tennessee clubs won
in well fought and stubbornly con
tented fanes, the vutory of Memphis
being particularly creditable, having
been won from the hitherto invinci
ble Savannahs in the best-played game
of the championship series. It is to
be hoped that the funny fellows, who
bave been exercising tbe dull edges of
their wit at the expense of the local
clnb, and satirically inquiring, "Why
don't Memphis get a baseball club T '
wil' content themselves with the an
swer given yesterday, and ask no
more tsbsurd questions. When the
Memphis Club can win as she did yes
terday, handicapped as she was by
playing half of ber men out of posi
tion, the fiierds ot the home nine
need have no fears as to her ultimate
rink in the League.
Neither side scored until the third
inning, when Murray of the Savan
nahs hit safe to left field for one baae,
stole to second, and went tn third and
borne on a pased ball. This looked
ta'.her blue for our side, but it seemed
to have a brncing effect on Fuseulbacb,
who allowed no mmc ba Is to pats
him after that. Cidlins struck out,
Moriarity likewise jO'Day went to first
oncalliid balls, advanced to second on
fumble of l'm-lan'p, but was left there
nn Strief's strike out. For Memphis
Phelan, Knoull end O'Leary struck
out in one, two, three order. Snarp
fielding on both sides waa now tbe
rule. In the fourth inning Fields got
to firit on safe grounder, Miller wmt
to first on called balls and Fields to
second, McLaughlin Hied out to cen
ter field, Neal hit a line fly to Phelan,
who caught it, and, touching bias be
fore Fields could reach it, made a bril
1 ant double play without assistance.
In the fifth inning Memphis made
her first run. Two men were out when
Phelan stepped up to the plate. Every
body expected him to saw out, as he
usually does, but the unexpected al
ways happens, (or Richard lifted that
ball out to center field for three bags
and scored on a pained ball, amid the
wildest enthusiam on the Terrace.
Goose eggs were chalkei up opprsite
the score of both sides until the
seven'h inning, when, by bunching
hits, Memph's made an ta'ned run.
Fuscelbach Hied out to right field,
Lsvin hit a hot grounder to center
field for one bag, Whitehead sent one
to left field with tbe same result,
Lavin advancing to second, Phelan
bit to short and retired at first. Knoull'
was tha next batter, and the crowd
held its breath, so internee wai the ex
citement. Click, click, click went the
wires, and before he could talk the
audience could tell from the broad
smile on Nat Graves's barometric face
that good news was coming, and
so it proved. Knouff hit safe tn tenter
field, Lavin scoring and Whitehead
going to third, and the cheers that
gree'ed the announcement might kave
been hea-d a mile off. Knouff stole
to second, but he and Whitehead were
both left on bases by O'Leary'a foul
tip to McLrtvihlin. This ended the
run getting aud Memphis won the
game by a score ot 2 lo 1, without find
ing it nececFary to play the ninth in
ning. The features of the game were
the brilliant base running ot Black,
theefleciive pitching of O'Leary and
tbe excellent work ot both catchers
behind tbe ba.

Atlanta, Ua., April 20. To-day the
Supreme Court of Georgia affirmed
the veidjct which sends Kugene Beck
to the penitentiary for life. In the
fU of 188 the town ot O ayton was
shocked by the murder of Mrs. Klla
Bock and bnr' aister, Miss Ada
Bailey, at tho bauds ot husband
and brother-in-law. Beck year
before had married the handsome
daughter of Dr. Bailey of Cutnming.
At the time of the trngidyMisa Ada
Bailey was on a visit 10 her married
sister, previous to bur own marriage.
There she learned for tbe first time
that Mrs. Beca. was unhappy from her
husband's brutal and drunken habits.
It was agreed that Mrs. Beck should
return home to w'tnuss her sis er's
ruarriago, aud that she would not re
turn to her husbii'd until he gave
some substantial evidence of reforma
tion. Somehow he suspected this,
and borrowed revolver. He went to
bed until the women bad retired,
then jumping 'up on tbe bed he
filaced the revolver against the baseot
da wife's brain and fired twice.
Quickly withdrawing it he fired at
colored woman, who happened to be
passing tbe dot r. i He then placed the
revolver against the left breaet of Miss
Bailey, whom he held beneath his
knees, and sent a bullet through her
heart. Then began a di lb urate effort
to clear the murderer. He was ex
tensively related throughout tbe coun
try, having relatives in the Legislature
and various responsible positions.
Wlwn Dr. Bailey, tho f ither of the
murdered woman, reached Clayton,
every mouth was closed against giving
him information, while Kugene hsii
all the sympathy. There were those
opposed to Beck, but they stood in
fear of his reUtive. When the trial
came off the plea wa set np that Beck
was delirious with liquor, and should
be acquitted. The tried assumed a
notable shape, but it resulted in Beck's
conviction cf a lesser offense. Hia
friends then sought relief in the Su
preme Court, but that baa now been
refused, and the donhle mordtrer was
eav. d his life, but must spend it ia
