men under the village constable starteu out
in pursuit, and aftir a few hours' ride the
men were discovered. The thieves were
well armed, and after several shots bad
been exchanged they took to the woods.
Only one of the men was captured. He
gave bis name as Geo. Burgess. When
secured a part of tae stolen property was
found in his posession. The other two
mn could not bo found, although they
traced th'Oiigh the woods to a farm, where
they had stolen a hoiso and wagou. They
were next heard of at Otisville, where the

Another Attempt to Give tbe People
of M. Louie Tan He.
6t. Louis, Nov. 16. The proceedings
of this afternoon's meeting of tbe Police
Bosrd are looked with the greatest In
terest. It Is well-known that Mrs. Ca
nrb and Luus Lave sousrbt local advise,
and at 1 p. m. tbey bad decided t ) gel rid
of Campbell to-day, it possible. To do
tbi, their plain was to bold that, Inas
much as the Board bad appealed from the
decision of the Court of Appeals, that de
cision was not operative, and that, thereto
ivto, Mr. Taff was still Chief of Police.
In pursuance of this plain, It was stated
that when the Board met this afternoon,
Mr. TaaC would bs notified,
that he was still Chief of
Police, and by a vote of the three com
missioners, the captains of police wou d
be iio'ltjed to report to "Chief Taaffe."
This scheme is liable t fall to the ground
i for two reasons. Tbe first is that Mr.
Woodward does not want Taaffe, and the
-vcond is that Taaffe will not take the place, j
tnless be is persuadod very urgently, as he
nas stated tnat ne is tired of the whole row.
This scheme is by no means In accordance
with law, and if attempted will be easllv
defeated. Toe other plan Is to follow the
purpose for which tbe meating has been set.
It will be remembered that when the Board
adjourned Tuesday, It adjourned to meet
in special session to-day to dismiss the
motion of suspending Cfcrnphell. It is
probable that by a vote of three members an
atte mpt may be made to suspend Campbell,
pending ihe charges, but the Mavor will
; defeat this by tua parliamentary tactics
j which he adopted on Tuesday, aiul if this
i Is not suffloient, other means will be taken,
j It is at tne attorn time probable that some
! other mau, ptrtiaps b.nu Boyd, Chief of
! Detectives, may elect to obey the commands
! of Carutb, Ln z and Woodward, and In
' that case there may be some lun, and an ar
I rest or two limy fodow. In all tiete con

though Carum and Lutz claim Woodwaid
as their aiiy. be has not yet decided, and
he might flop over to the" other side. An
j Intimate Mend of Dr. Lutz sild at
2 p. m. to-day that a very short
I session of the bnaiil might be loo' ed for.
and that thliiL's wouid be "railroaded"
through In very fast time. This may mean
cither an adjournment without doing any
lhintr, or the elec ion of anotber chief by
tbe three before there is any lime to pro'
test. One thiiK' is certain, and that is if a
new Chief of Pnlic1 is not appointed to-day,
It is because Carutb m-'l T .z cannot pull

young woman named Lina Lewis, tbe
daughter of a farmer st Turners, oo tbe
Erie railroad. Tbe man susd was
EUGENE B. GOETftCHISS,
of BockUnd county, a cousin of tbe plaintiff.
From the evidence of both parties It ap
pears that tbey had been unduly Inilmaw
from tbe fall of 1680. The plaintiff assert
edtbattbe defendant made a promise to
marry her when tboy were In New York
together in February, 1882. In tbe follow
ing July she said tbey made s trip to Elml
ra together, when he gave her wedding
ring, Informing her that

bouse us ber husband. A child was born to
the young woman October 22, lc2, and still
lives, hut upon the birth of the child, tbs
defendant oeaaedto see bnr and refused to
marry ber. Goetsoblns admitted tbe In
timacy between himself and tbe plaintiff,
but positively denied tbat he ever promised
to marry her.- He was compelled to ad
mit writing letters to her, whiob were pro

look right to her people. B datives of "the
girl swore tbat Goetsculus told them be and

Lewis said bis sister and Goetsoblns both
said that tbe E mira trip was their wed

clared that tbe girl was not bis wile, that

that was to be decided now wat whether
there bad been any promise to marry.

that an attempt to marry wU make hltu
