Cougblin, Bourk aud O'Sullivan from the

are to be relied upon The latest is as fol
lows, and is published in all tbe papers:
Juror Culver called upon State' Attorney
Ixmgeneckor yesterday forenoon. He
accomianied by S. A. Keen, wbo conducts
a bank on Washington street. Mr. Culver
was in a mood for explanations. He evi
dently wanted to justify bis extraordinary
course in the jury-room. When he was ush
ered into Judge Longenecker's private office
he stepped forward with alacrity, and, hold
ing out lxith bands, greeted the state's attor
ney as bis "dear brother, JoeL" A freezing
frown and a contemptuous movement of the
bands was the only return to the satutation.
Lnnirrnn-ker la Bad Humor.
"I came in. Brother Joel." Culver beiran.
in a pleading voice, when he was inter
rupted by an emphatic command to hold hi
"IXin't yon call me brother any more," said
Ju.lj,e Longenecker, agrily. The little pros
ecutor's eyes were snapping, his bands were
clinched, and there was aggressiveness in his
voice that indicated anything but compla
cency. He was angry at the sight of the
man wno, after having told him before
court room full of people that be believed in
his lUmgeuecker's) honwty, bad retired to
the jury room and voted the other way.
And Iterlines To He Anneased.
''But, Brother Joel." Culver remonstrated
He got no further. The angry prosecutor,
with his hat tilted back on his hnad. his evea
flashing, and his voice husky, advanced from
Ins desk and exclaimed:
-lion't 'brother' m . Culver; Tm no brother

interrupted py a perfect storm.
"There's no 'but' about it," Longenecker
exclaimeL "Culver, I don't pretend to sav
that your motive in votiug as you did was

Culver Uets Off Nafelv.
Culver started nervously and began re-
treatmg toward the d.or. Keen, his com
lnioti, spoke to Judge Loucenerker in
mild voice as if to check his flow of anger.
an.i lor a reply he received a iwrempusrv
command to hold bis s-uce. as he had noth
ing w liatever lo do with the matter under
consideration. The interview lasted Vnai
than live minutes altogether, but it is not
likely that Culver will ever forget it if lie
lives to lie as old as Melhuwlah.
Hanker Kran Talks.
Mr. Kean was retuvut about the inter
view, but admitted that Judge I-ngenecker
did most of the talking. "I callwi at tbe

iiie-.t. be kui.I "We came to tlie city on

Kkw York, Dec 19. For five nights the
city's streets have been bare of electric
lights, and a good many of them of gas
lights, too. The electric lighting companies,
which are all making common cause now,
sty tbat it rests with the commissioners of
public works to determine how long this
itate ot things shall continue. The Ave elec
tric light companies the United States, the
Brush, the Manhattan, tbe East River, and
tbe Morris all have counsel who ap
parently are doing nothing just now, but
waiting until tbe city gets through chopping
wires. But the fact is that tbey are keeping
track of the damage done and are in con
"If You'll Only Give I s Time."
Paul D. Cravatb, who represents the
Cm ted State and the Brush companies said
svst night that tbe companies could not pos
nbly tell how long it would be before they
sould resume the work of lighting the
t rests. Mr. Cravat h was asked if the com
panies ever expected to be able to run wires
which would be absolutely safe. He replied
that such a state of affairs would certainly
be reachcil. 'We can make our system per
fectly safe," he said, "if we are let alone.
We can't do it in a minuto, but we are learn
ing how to do it, and our education in this
respect will soon be completed. Every time
we are interfered with it retards our prog
ress in this respect. Let us alone and it won't
be long before our wire will be safe in every
particular. Give us a chance and we will
jventually be able to lurbt this city with a
perfectly safe system. What steps we shall
take in this matter are not know n yet, but
we shall certainly try to indemnify our
selves for the loss we have sustained in being
compelled to stop our business."
No Lights and a Thick Fosr.
Tlie city never wanted electric lights worse
than it did last night The heavy folds of
gray fog and the driving sheets of raw mist
made it almost impossible to travel on foot
with any degree of unoertaiut v. Between 5
and 6 o'clock, w hen the big office buildings
down town were disgorging their tenants,
and the sidewalks were crowded and the
streets were rilled with clattering trucks and
cars, the fog came down so thick that it was
difficult to see across Broadway. Tbe gas
light in the street lamps hardly counted. The
shopping thoroughfares up-town were jum
bled with people, nearly all of whom were
laden with bundles, and tbe proverbial pa
tience of an American crowd was tried a
good deal in the dark, sloppy, travel-choked
Nine watchmen were strung along Hous
