over the idea of having a packet, which

--In Magistrate Comings' court yester
day forenoon Herman Sticher was held to
bail in the sum of fivo hundred dollars to
auswer to tho charge of stealing 103.00
from Mr. Louis Koehler, Sr. Failing to
givo bail he was sent to j nil to await trial
by tho circuit court at its Mav term.
Young Sticher was rooming with tho
Koehler boys, up stairs in a building in the
same yard with the sawsage factory. Mr.
Louis Koehlerj had hidden the money in
an old trunk standing in the room occu
pied by tho boys, believingitto be entirely
safe there. A day or two ago Mr. Koehler
saught the money, intending to uso it, but
discovered that it was not in tho trunk, and
could nowhere be found. Inquiry lead to
a suspicion against young Sticher and he
was arrested yesterday and examined as
stated. Tho evidenco produced entirely
justified tho judgment of tho court, the
accused having no explanation whatever to
make; Ho is a confirmed invalid, having
but recently returned from Union Ci'y
where ho had been uuder treatment for
sore eyes, ana oeing otucrwiso aniictcu
which . renders him virtually a helpless
cripple. It is believed by bis relatives
and friends that his mind is also affected
and that, if ho is really guilty ns charged,
which they doubt, ho is not morally re
sponsible for the act. For the sake of his
relatives who are worthy people and among
whom is an aged mother, it is ro be hoped
that ho will be proven innocent of the grave
crime charged sgairwt him.

gists. A DEAD NEGRO.
Yesterday forenoon tho body of a dead
negro was found under tho side walk" at
tho northwest corner of Sixth street and
Washington avenue. The body was very
much decomposed and the features of the
faco wero barely recognizable. It was
dressed in a gruy shirt and brown jeans
punts, and had a white cotton handker
chief around tho neck. Corouor Richard
Fitzgerald was immediately notified of
tho discovery and he immediately summon
ed a jury consisting of Messrs. J T
Thomas, foreman, Niclmlas Peith, Patrick
Corcoran, Frank G. Metealf, Ed. Jones
and Marida Smith. Although a number
of witnesses wero axiiininod nothing doflu
ito concerning tho body could bo learned,
not even the uame. Tho testimony which
threw tho most light upon tho identity of
tho dead man was that of another negro,
who said that ho hud Been tho man about
Bill Scott's saloon lust week; but that tho
man was a stranger in town and known to
few if any. Thero wero no eviduncoB of
Violence upon tho body, although it liod
been reported that the skull was broken.
The Jury's vlrdict was that docuimml camo
to hii death by drowning or other causes
unknown. Tho probability that death re
gultod from drowning is very strong, as it

of water which has stood under the aide
