Mr. N. K. Grose, formerly of this city,
engaged in the saloon business on Wash
ington avenue and Fourteenth Street, but
who left here to engage in railroading,
died at Toy ah, Texas, en the loth instant.
His remains were interred at Fort Worth.
Mrs. Bettie Fann, sister of Mr. Henry
Elliott, died about 11:U0 o'clock Monday
nk'ht at the residence of Mrs. McKee on
Poplar Street between Ninth and Tenth
where she was boarding. She died of con
sumption, with which she had been alllict
ed for a long time. Her husband and child,
a very sweet little girl, survive her.
The excursion party of Knights of
Pythias, from Michigan, that passed
through here for New Orleans some days
ago, arrived here again last evening on
their return trip. They were all attractive
ly uniformed and there were a great many
of them. Five sleepers, a baggage car and
a smoking car were comprised in their spc
cial train. They remained here about two
hours durinir, which time they meandered
in squads through the city. They were aC'
companied by a fine cornet band which
made Bweet music at The Ilalliday during
the supper hours.
Hon. D. T. Linegar has invented and
patented a car coupler, which, it is said by
those who have seen it and are competent
to judge is a very useful thing. It is much
different from all other inventions of the
kind, and superior to them in that it is
simple and less liable to be disordered.
The value ot tho patent may be inferred
from the fact that while in Washington
recently, so we understand, Mr. Linegar
was solicited by a man of wealth and who
win interested in railroads considerably, to
form a stock company for the manufacture
of the coupler.

The trial of a civil case entitled E. P.
Edy vs. W. H. Schutter, was temporarily
concluded in Magistrate Comings court
yesterday afternoon. The circumstances as
developed in the trial were about as fol
lows: Constable Schutter attached a bill
iard table which he believed belonged to
Mr. Geo. W. Edy, in order to satisfy fc
claim due from said Edy to Mr. B. McMan
us; and Mrs. E. P. Edy repleviued the table
in the hands of the officer, claiming it as
her own aud therefore not liable to seisure
for claims agaiust her husband. Mr. Geo.
E. Hendricks appeared for the plaintiff
and Mr. W. C. Mulkey for the defendant.
It was a jury trial and was begun Monday
afternoon, continuing until night when
court adjourned until yesterday morning,
when it was resumed. The jury went out
about 10:0 o'clock and remained in
"solitary confinement'' until after 2 o'clock
p. m. when they were discharged, standing

Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock
Capt. Moore, mail agent between Evans
ville and Paducah met with a great if not
fatal misfortune while iu this city. He
came down on the Fowler from Paducah,
instead of the agent appointed for the boat,
and while his mail was being prepared for
him at the Postoffice, he went, as was his
costom whenever he came down here, to
make a brief call at the residence of Mr.
E. C.Ford, just across the street from the
Postoflice. The ladies of the house received
him and they had barely exchanged a few
pleasant wards when the Capt. complained
of feeling very sick, aud he was about to
leave when he fell prostrate to the floor in
the parlor, stricken helpless with paralysis.
The ladies managed to place hun on a
lounge and then sunt to the Postoffice for
Capt. Murohy bud Mr. Lippitt, who came
immediately and summoned medical aid.
Dr. Dunning responded hastily and did all
that could be done for the stricken man
with some good results. Capt. Moore's
left side was entirely helpless and at first
his mind seemed to be affected, but became
clearer after a little. He was curried to a
hack and conveyed to the Fowler where ho
was comfortably placed in one of the large
state rooms. When the boat left here he
was no better. His left side was still en
tirely numb aad his mind was wandering.
He is a large, fiue looking man, about titty
years of age, and has a family of wife and
four children living at Evansville. ne is
well known and popular all along the river
and his atlliction will call forth many ex
pressions and regret.
Two men named Richard Elliott and
Henry Bcede were arrested by Chief Myers
yesterday, upou the charge of stealing
clothin" from John W. Short and George
Sargent. The latter were engaged in the
paint shop of Clark & Lovett oa Washing
ton avenue, and it was from there the
clothing was stolen. Mr. Short lost a
whole suit of clothing, a bat and a tie, all
valued at $21.50; and Mr. Sargent lost two
white shirts and several handkerchiefs,
valued at $2.25. Eiliott and Btede were
tramps. The firmer came here several days
ago aud asked for employment of Mr.
Short, who granted the request. Beede
came a day or two later and formed a sort
of tramp partnership with Elliott. To
gether they coucocted the scheme of steal
ing the clothing, and yesterday morniug
while Mr. Short was momentarily away
from the shop, Elliott took all the clothing
he could find, after having told Beede to go
up to the Illinois Ceutral sand-house and
wait for him there, and went down to the
narrow-gauge road near the oil works, ex
changed his old clothing for the new, and
walked up the track, leaving his partner
in the lurch. But Chief Myers, after cap
turiug Beede at the Illinois Central sand
house, got on the truck ol Elliott, followed
him for about seven miles up the narrow
gauge roai and there, learning from a ne
gro that a white tramp had cut through the
woods after asking the nearest way to the
Illinois Central Kad, he turned into the
woods and came up with the object of his
search sitting against a tree to rest. The
officer took Elliott in charge and brought
him back here; and Magistrate Comings
held both fellows to bail yesterday in the
sum of $200 each.

men did up some of the faithful of this

A Break in the Ranks.
Washington, I). C, April s. it is
stated by Sam liandall's followers that
there will be a break in the ranks of the
tariff reformers when the previous ques
tion is called upon the horizontal hill one
week from to-day, and that the enaetln"
clause will be stricken out. Several men
who have been voting with Morrison are
declaring against him to get un oppor
tunity of supporting a bill to i. offered
by Hewitt, of .New York, which simply
puts all the raw material on the free list.
The Protectionists claim that forty-ei'ht
Democrats will vote to strike out the en
acting clause of the MorrNon , and
that nearly all of them will support
Hew itt's measure.
TIIK SlHI'l'IMi mi. I..
The shipping bill will follow the pleuro
pneumonia bill iu the Senate, and those
who really believe in a restoration of
American shippiug will make a deter
mined struggle for the repeal of the ton
nage dues. These dues turn into the
treasury about !1,:!imi,iki annually, which
really comes out of the pockets' of pro
ducers. Tonnage dues have been abol
ished by all nations except Spain. They
were abolished by the I'nitcd States iu
h:;o, and that gave an impetus that made
American shipping equal to that f t,0
greatest nations. During the rebellion
tonnage dues were reimposed as a war
measure. It Is not contended that the
tax is burdensome to shipping, lut that
the money It brings is not ncrded by the
(iov eminent, and that in time of peace It
ought to be abolished.

Mr. Hiscock (of New York) addressed

Mr. Hurd (of Ohio) said that when a
duty is laid upon imported goods it is a
tax paid first by the importer, but ulti
mately by the consumer. When levied
for the benetlt of the government, it is a
revenue tax; when lor the benetlt of the
producer, it is a protective tax. He de
nied the right of the government to sur
render the taxing power to the indi
vidual, and the right of the individual to
exercise it. Under the protective tariff.
the law made the laborer the slave of the
manufacturer. He rested his w hole case
on tne proposition mat outside of the
necessities of the government every man
had the right to sell where he could, get
the most for bis production and buy
where he could do so cheapest.
The present tariff was a high pro
tective one The effect of protection
to foreign commerce could only be
deleterious. Every hindrance to impor
tations was an obstacle to commerce.
More Injurious still was the system to
the carrying trade. He contrasted the
carrying trade of the country iu 1S57
and 1 S.V.i, andsaid the protective tariff
was directly chargeable with the result.
