John Buckley Pleafi3 Guilty to Being
Friday's Banner contained an
account of the arrest of John
Buckley by Policeman Lockett
at the Santa Fe saloon, charged
with the theft of a hat.
The hat in question was the
corporeal personal property of
Father Francis Pridal, and was
stolen from his residence by
Buckley after the latter had been
given a square meal at the
hands of the priest, the thief
thus proving a double villain by
robbing his benefactor.

Prof. J. R. Holmey, who con
ducts a private school in South
Brenham, excepts to the Ban
ner's report in Friday's issue of
the fight between "Wm. Schafer
and two of his little school fel
lows in which the former got a
severe lick in the eye. He says
the occurrence took place after
school hours and fully three
hundred yards from the school
building. Prof. Holmey further
says that after investigating the
matter he is convinced that the
statement of the larger boy hold
ing young Schafer while the lat
ter struck him is untrue. All
school boys fight to a greater or
less extent, and the fact that
they do so is not regarded as a
reflection on their tutor nor an
evidence of any lack of training.

ilnch melodious Music at Athletic
An excellent program of twelve
musical numbers arranged in two
parts, separated from each other
by a brieftintermission, was ren
dered at Athletic Hall Friday
evening under the auspices of the
Ladie3 Guild of the Episcopal
The very rigorous weather
militated to a great extent against
the attendance. Still the au-.
dience, though few in numbers,
was a representative one, and
well paid for their pains in facing
a South Texas blizzard in order
jto be on hand.
Music is always entrancing
It thills the soul and vivifies the
imagination as does no
other influence. It is only
when listeninsr to such music
as was contributed on this
occasion that those possessed of
a vivid imagination train a faint
conception of what an incom
parable time the fabled gods
must have enjoyed when with
the brow of Olympus for a con
cert hall they reveled in the
music of the spheres.
Tne opening numoer was a
quartette, "The Lost Chord," a
selection from Sullivan,the sen
timent being admirably adapted
to' the sweet clear voices of Mrs.
L. M. Simon, and Misses Estes,
McClung and Lockett. This was
followed by the rendition of one
of Bishoff's carchiesfclove song.
"He Told Me S,o," at the hands
of Miss Irene Crozier which was
most admirably accomplished.
The singer was heartily ap
plauded at the close. Miss Ber
tha Becker's favor, a piano solo,
"Air de Ballet," the next num
ber, came in for a full share of
praise. The double quartette, or
rather six members of it, Mr
and Mrs. J. D. Campbell, and
Messrs. Thomas and Flourney
Teague, Thomas Holland and
Dr. T. F. Cox, sang "God So
Loved the "World," Mrs. Camp
bell playing the accompaniment.
This is one of the numbers with
which a Chappell Hill audience
was recently carried captive, and
is no less popular at homo than
abroad. Mr. Albert Cohn's
powers as a violinist are well
known in Brenham, and in his
Love Song" he thoroughly sus
tained his reputation. )
The last section of the program
opened with a piano solo, "Rhap-
sodie No. 2," by Miss Lizzie
Lewis Miss Lewis is a recent
addition to Brenham's musical
ranks from our sister city. Bas
trop! Her rendition was artistic
and heartily applauded" The
quartettes, "Sweet and Low" and
"Stars in Heaven," contributed
by Mrs. Simon, Miss Julia Lock
ett, Rev. George Lloyd and Mr.
Wm. Lloyd,were among the lead
ing features of the program. Mrs.
Simon, Misses Estes and Lock
ett rendered "Sweet Daisy," a
selection from Curachmann, with
excellent and pleasing effect.
Mrs. S. Epstein's powers as a
vocalist are well known both at
nome ana aoroad. The same
may bo said of Miss Mary E
Rouse as a pianist, and their
selections were up to their usual
high standard and were among
the numbers most appreciated.
A piano duet, "Airs from
Ernani," by those skilful musi
cians, Miss Kate Estes and Julia
Lockett, was the concluding

A CELEBRATED CASE.
United States Suprema Court Sustains
the Findings of Judge Sinks in a
Case Appealed From Wash
On January 3d, 1833, while the
Houston and Texas Central Rail
way was in the hands of Chas.
Dillingham, receiver, Frank
Kelly, a brakeman on the road,
was killed at the rock Quarry
near Ledbetter, by the derailing
of a rock train. The wreck was
caused by a defective switch.
Suit wa3 filed in the District
court of "Washington dounty on
February 24th, 1893, and the
case was continued to the Sep
tember term 1893. In the mean
time the receiver of "the road,
had been discharged and the
road was in the hands of the
present company. The com
pany was made a defendant in
the suit and on trial in the Dis
trict court at the September
term 1893, judgment was ren
dered in favor of Mrs. Kelly for
87,000. The case was appealed
and on Sept. 20th, 1894, was re
versed and remanded, Judge
Pleasants writing the opinion of
The case again. came on for
trial in the District court, and on
the 14th day cf March, 1895,
another jury gave judgment for
87,000, and the case was again
appealed. On April 30th, 1896,
the Court of Civil Appeals af
firmed the case, Judge Pleasants
again writing the opinion of the
court. On June 25th, 1896, the
Supreme Court of Texas refused
to grant a writ of error, and the
railroad company removed the
case by writ of error to the Su
preme Court of the United
The company contended that
as the injury occurred while the
road -was in the hands of the
receiver, it was not liable for the
damage. The plaintiff contend
ed that as the receiver had ap
plied large sums of money to
permanent improvements and
Detterment or tne railroaa prop
erty after its purchase by the
present company and before
turning the road over to the com
pany, that the company was lia
ble for all acts of negligence by
the receiver, to the amount of the
money so expended in improve
ments, which amount was large
ly in excess of plaintiff's claim.
The Supreme Court of the United
States has recently decided sev
eral cases in conformity with
plaintiff's view of the law, and
the attorneys for the railroad
company have recently agreed
with the plaintiffs attorneys to
dismiss the writ of error, prepar
atory to paying the judgment.
Mrs. Kelly died during the
pendency of the appeal, and her
heirs will enjoy the proceeds.
Messrs. Campbell & Penning
ton of this city conduoted the
-case for the plaintiff from its in
ception to its successsul termina
tion, and are justly proud of the
fact that their view of the law in
the case has been sustained, all
the way from Judge Sinks in the
District court of "Washington
county, to Chief Justice Fuller
of the Supreme Court of the
Hall's Great Discorery.
