TH SUPKEME COURT AND THE
CHOLERA. IN KK05.VILI.E.
From the Chattanooga Times, Sept. 3.
For what the Juees havo deemed good
and sufficient reasons, hey have announced
that they would not hold a lull term of tho
Sapreme Court ia Knoxville this fall. One
of tho reasons we may say the controlling
one was, that cholera was more or less
prevalent in different parts of East Tennes
see, and that the assembling of a considera
ble number of persons at any given point in
that locality, many of whom mus', of ne
cessity, came from the afflicted localities,
would be an imprudence, not to say cjlme,
because it rnteht provoke an outbreak of
the malady. Their honors were further
moved to this resolution by the urgent ap
peals ofleading lawyers to thsm not to hold
the session lor the reasons above stated, and.
inoreover.bscause a number of isolated cases
of cholera bad ap eared in Knoxvllie, ana
.several deaths had resulted therefrom dur
ing the months of July aud August, not'
bly In the latter month. This prudent
resolution has i brown both our Kuoxvllla
cotemporaiies into spasms of rage. And
strange to say they blaiao evorybody but
the judges. They don't stop to consider
that the lawvers are partly, and U'elr own
reports of the existence the cholera in their
city, are principally, the moving cause for
the resolution ol tno judges, not to expose
themselves and a her ot their lrgal breth
ren to the dangers incident to a possible
outbreak of cholera in Knoxville during the
month of September. And here we may
remark en passant, that the only cholera
epidemic Knoxville everexoerienced waa in
September, and that this, too, had its in
fluences in bringing the judges to iheir con-
c uslon to adjourn the court to a more

Special to tho Cincinnati Commercials
Washington, Sept. S. Tho suggestion
having been made, to tho Secretary of the
Treasury" that during tho coming two

rency inthe Treasury, la. order to pour 11

ber and December, the bscretary is under
stood to havo stated that he did notintend
to deviate from, the uniform policy or tne
Department, either by restricting the pur
chases of bonds or by deferring currency
disbursements, as has been suggested, 'ine
latter was regarded as equivalent to a sus

Indians witu Improved Firearm.
Western men temporarily here state that
it is not a matter of surprise that hostile
Indians are found, as they have been recent
ly, supplied with tno best pattern ot lm-
nroved iirearms. Tney state inas it is ine
regular practice of traders at all the military
nosts on the upper Missouri river to sell
rifles and ammunition to the Indians under
all circumstances and at a large profit. They
state that it can ba nroved beyond a doubt
that directly after Ilia terrible massacre in
Dakota, two years ago, the In ians cime
into the trading station with the blood on
their hands and clothes fresh from the mur
der of women and children, and obtained
from the government agents lsrge supplies
cf rifles and ammunition.
A Little Katter or Interest.
Special to the Cincinnati Gazette.
Washington. Sept. 2. An examination
of the debt statement.lea 3s to the belief that
the syndicate have been unable to procure
the bonds which ware called on March 1
bv about eleven millions, and to make good
their deficiency have put iu other bonds Of
eautd face and marKes Values wmca were
not called, it is not expected at tne .treas
ury Department that these missing eleven
millions or bonds, on wnicn tna interest
has ceased, and which the syndicate hive
not procured, will be presented much, if
any, before Nov. 1, when the nest coupon
will become due, as iney are mcsuy neia in

probably Ignorant of the call.
Extraordinary Operations of the
Special to tho Louisville Couriertournal.
Washington, Sept. 8. The New York
Sun publishes some otatliog facts, showing
General uaococK's measurement or tne
work done by the WasMncton ring to have
been grossly and enormously in excess of
the trua amount, in one item or worn
near the Winder building alone there is a
fraud of $7,000, and the fcet is apparent to
the most careless observer. But tne worK
has, however, been Carefully remeasuredby
a civil engineer. One of tho present tricks
of the ring is to make thsir now grades con
flict with those already mado by them on
intersecting streets, so far that the work on
the latter will have to be done over again at
a heavy expense. The so-called improve
ments are going on at a heavy rato that
would be deemed extravagant for New
York or Bost m. Gen. Babcock Is said to
have purchased in the last year or two a
la-rc amount of real estate in the city, one
of the houses having been recently occupied
by Secretary Delano and eold by liaococK
for $25,000. He still ho.ds his place as pri

SANFitANCisco,Aug.24. It is impos

will not bo completed beiore Friday night or
Saturday morning. Enough is known to
assure the complete victory of tha People's
Anti-Railroad Monopoly ticket for the Leg
islative brancli and most of their municipal
candidates. Tho contest for Mayor and
OMef of Police is vary close and doubtful,
but it is clsimed by the Democrats. Tha
total vote was 26,210, much larger than ex
pected. Yesterday afternoon Carr issued orders
that tho railroad cohorts abandon the Re
publicans and go in a body for the Demo

turns from the interior come in slowly. It
Is impossible to mako correct estimates
upon them now. Sacramento City votes
4,000. The'RepubliCins claim a majority for
tha railroad of 800 or 400. Tha tax payers
say tho county will more than offset the
majority or tne city ana wui give mom uie
victory over the railroad company. In most
towns heard from the Independent People's
Tax-pajers' ticket is ahead.
Later. A dispatcn to uov. uooin says
Sacramento give cue thousand majority
against the railroad. That city is a strong
hold cf the company, which has over one
thousand employes there. The indications
are certain of a grand victory tnrougnout
the State over the railroad. Twenty-four

A Mere Bagatelle.
New York, Sept. 4. Tha Express says
a rumor has been circulated that a defal
cation had been discovered in the accounts
nf an officer of the S ate Bank of New
Brunswick, N. J., and that an expert is ex
amining the books. Tno aeiaic&tion is
placed at about $200,000.
Later. A soecUl to the IVtfcmc from
New Brunswick, N. J., says: The greatest
excitement has prevailed heresmco Mon
day over the rumored defalcation of G. W.
Appleton, cashier of the S ate Bank, for
$200,000, and Mr. Underhill of New
York is now examining tba booke.
It was rumored last niaht tho cashier loaned
$190,000 to R. W. Woodworth, President
of tha New Brunswick Carpet Company,
without authority of the President or di
rectors of tho bank, and Woodward's failure
to pay the money was tho cause of tha
bank's disaster. It is well known that
H. Richmond. Vice President of the bauk,
is a director In tho carpet company, and a
number of bank directors are stockholders.
James Short, Superintendent of tm Carpet
Company, says the money was never used in
tbo company, as it was r ot needed there, and
the impression is that it was lost in
stock speculations in Wall street. Anothf r
rumor is that Wordwerd has como forwaid
and furnished security for the whole
amount. Bauk men are very reticent on the

A SAIiT WATER EPISODE. V
A cnrrejDondent of a PhiladeJp la piper
relates" the misfortuno that befel a bold , but
inc utlous innovator on estaollshed 'ens
toms at Dong Branch. One day a fair lady
made her appearance on the beach at the
bathinc hour, attired iu a cosiuma wmca
struck amazement to the min s of all be
holders. A very brief tunic o: wm e
alpaca, trimmed with pale blue, was belted
around her slender waist. Her lower limbs'
were clad to the knee in Knickerbocker
trousers of white alpaca, and b"?low these
appeared dainty, striped stockings of blue
and white, while ber feet were encasad'ln
wtite shoes ornamented with blue rosettes.
A coquettish little hat, trimmed with blue,
was perched on one side of her head, and
from beneath it fell heavy braids of pale
golden hair gleaming like the pnre mnlsln
the sunbeams. Tho waves burst over her; tha
drenched alpwa clings do3a to rounded
shoulders and eh3paly arm. Suddenly a
huge breaker is seen to arise and sweap
majestically toward the shore. It reaches
tbe group of bathers, thunders over them
and subsides. The air is vocal with thrill
shrieks of feminine dismay, but loudest of a.1
rinzs a screams from the hps of the golden
haired nymph in white alpica, and her arms
are seen gesticulating wildly ia the air. Alas
for her elegant toilette and elaborate coif
fure! The mighty wave has knocked her
down, covered ber dress with sand and sea
weed, and worst of all, has swept off not
only ber jaunty li'.to bat, but her golden
hair as well, and a tiny knot, about the siza
of a silk worm'3 cocoor, a one decorates the
back or her bead where lata those shining
tresses waved resclendent. The hat, with
its capillary" treasures still attached to It,
was recovered and handed to her, and she
retired to the shades of ber bath house a.
balder and a sadder woman, perchance
wiser one m
