TBS FIREMAN'S PRIZE at the Fair is creating
a great deal of enthusiasm. The lists of the va?
rious companies are being rapidly filled np, and a
most laudable rivalry exists among the various
firemen to see their respective organizations well
represented in having their quota well tilled up.
The system of raffle is most fair, and all will have
an equal chance at the prizes. The chances are
one hundred for each company, and as soon as
each list ls filled, the president of each company,
or an officer, wUl throw the chances for each
company, the highest throw taking the first prize,
the second highest the second, Ac.
EX-ALDERMAN T. J. MACKEY EXCLUDED
FEOM THE PETIT Jaar.-During the session of
the State court, yesterday morning, Mr. T. J.
Mackey, one of the supernumerary petit jury?
men, was discharged by Judge Carpenter frem
further service upon the panel, under circum?
stances which are reported to us as foUows:
Mr. Mackey had stated to the acting Solicitor
that m the event of his trial upon the Indictment
now pending against him being pressed during
the present term, he would ask to be excused from
duty as a juryman. Shortly afterward, the Soli?
citor informed Mr. Mackey that, after a consulta
tion with Judge Carpenter, the latter had con?
sented to excuse him from further service. There?
upon Mr. Mackey repudiated the idea of having
requested to be excused. Subsequently Mr.
Mackey entered the court-room, while Mr. Sey?
mour, the counsel for one Nixon, was empanel?
ling a jury. Before the Jury was complete, Mr.
Seymour, observing Mackey, requested that
his name should be called. The J'*-ge replied
that Mr. Mackey had been excuse j. Thereupon
the latter arose and said that he had only asked
for an excuse in the event of a certain contin?
gency, which had not occurred and that he was
now ready to fulfll his duties aa a juryman. The
Judge said that Mr. Mackey was entered as ex
cused for the whole term, and that, even had no
request been made to that effect, he would have
excused him on his ow responsibility. Mr.
Mackey asked whether he wa, relieved because of
any misconduct on his part. The Judge
answered that he had observed the conduct of
Mr. Mackey, and was or the opinion that he was
not a flt and proper person to exercise the respon?
sible duties of a juryman. He referred to the cir?
cumstance that Mr. Mackey, during thc trial of
Frank Broughton for murder, last week, being
then a juryman, had nodded assent to a proposi?
tion which had been laid down by Mr. Sass, of
counsel for the defence. This charge was denied
by Mr. Mackey, but Judge Carpenter decided that
ho had the authority to remove Mr. Mackey, and,
as a dispenser of Justice, would take the respon?
sibility of doing so.
