The cases of Paul Martin, chaiged with
carrying a pistol and discharging Tire arms,
and of his brother, Kimon Martin, (or cany
inn pistol, came before the Recorder this
morning. Neither of the accused appeared,
but were represented by Mr. Oscar Bergstrom,
of the firm of firencman & Bergstrom. The
whole affair arose out of the recent attempt of
the Marlins to induce Kred Steinbach to
marry their sister Elsie, which he did. The
bridegroom appeared and testified tht the
brothers came to the springs and presented
pistols to him. tie ran towards the public
park of the springs, and then four shots were
fired, one passing near his ear. Another shot
struck a public seat. Endeavor was made to
represent the alTiir as a joke but the Re
corder seemed to think that ihe promiscuous
shooting endangered the livts of ihe visitors
and had a criminal aspect. lie therefore
passed the case until Thursday next. In the
meantime he directed that an affidavit be

Recently a young man struck this city. He
hailed from the glorious climate of California
and though not connected with the heathen
Chinee he had some of the subtle cunning of
that cetcttial. Like woman he had a mission
which was to make San Antonians famous.
They had only to subscribe to the Golden
Era ho represents to secure honorable and
ever laudable mention in the columns of that
paper. 7 he bait took, for it tickled the vanity
of our citizens, and subscriptions poured in
wholesale, some even advertised to gain ad
ditional notice. Hut speedily the pleasant
dreams of fancy vanished. Only one copy of
the paper has been received, and there was no
mention of them made in that. Now the
citizens who subscribed want to get behind
the door and kick themselves for being gulled

Two Han Antonio H parks Knc;uge Inn Fight
About a Lady.
Charles Mullaly and Willie HerlT were be
fore the Recorder this morning for fighting,
Mr. Mullaly did not appear. Mr. IlerfT was
called and stated that he was at the postofHce
when Mr. Mullaly came up and asked what
he had been saying about him. Mr. IlerfT
replied that he had not said anything, when
Mr. Mullaly drew off and hit him. He did
not want to fight, as he had a lot of money in
his possession, the property of the San An
tonio National bank. In answer to the Re
corder Mr. IlerfT said the fight was in respect
to a lady, whose name he could not mention
This was agreed to and ultimately the Re1
corder dismissed Ihe case against Mr. HertT
and fined Mr. C. Mullaly the sum of $10.

This is the way in which San Antonio will

wealthy and high spirited citizens come for

are an honor to their fellow citizens. Such
examples can be easily followed, and th

This morning Officer Doebbler discovered,
or was rthcr informed of, a disturbance going
on behind thepilice court. Hastening to the
spot he found a man, a good deal the worse
for liquor. So infatuated was he with the
glowing "aqua vitae" that he sacrificed his
furniture to that merry god. He would soon
have demolished every article in the house
had not the officer arrested h'm and taken
him to that abode of those who follow
Bacchus too freely, the jail.

arrangements made to wotk a large machine

Mr. W. Mittman, the sole Texan exhibitor
at the Louisville exposition, leaves tO'day for
that place, taking with him some beautiful
horn chairs. Mr. Mittman deserves success
for the spirit of public enterprise that distin
guishes his action in this instance.
Mascotte was again produced in Turner hall,
and, though it failed to attract such a large
house as previously, it was fairly patronized.
The performance was decidedly better in every
way, and it is questionable whether a better
amateur performance was ever witnessed in
this city than that presented last night.

the British 340; at 500 yards the Americans
score 366 and the British 376; total scores at
600 yards range, Americans 360, British 354,
making a grand total of 1078 for the Amcii
cans and 1070 for the British. The former are
thus eight points ahead on the day's shooting,
at three ranges."
A Palestine dispatch says : "The strike
here in the International shops, which has
been going on for the last four days, turned
out ao entire failure last night. The meeting
of the strikers resolved to throw overboard
the leaders and return to .work immediately,

cholera. The Standard's correspondent at
Cairo says that at Bulak his special messenger
counted eight funerals between 3 and 4 o'clock

Saved by n Dnj-,
Last night near midnight the clear report of
a revolver wa heard and Mr. Ilolmgreen, of
Market street, was satisfied that it came from
his yard. Cjn going out he heard the pitious
moaning of his dog and found that he had
been shot in the shoulder. From ciicum
stantial evidence it would appear that some
one had entered the yard to steal a horse, and
the drg had interfered with his nefarious
opcrations.from which cause he had been shot.
The dog saved his master's horse, but the
noble act will probably cause the dog his life.
