notice of appeal. State's Attorney Stur
geon appoared for the prosecution and
William Jackson for the defense.
This be ng the first of the month, a Sec
ond avenue shoe clerk received his custo
mary check for his month's salary, but
his empiorer instead of signing the firm
name merely wrote "April fool" at the
bottom of the check and gave it to him.
The clerk took it, but later noticed that
he bad been played, and making up his
mind that they wouldn't haye the laugh
on him. walked leisurely across the street
to the ban s where he presented it and re
ceived the cash, and now ail the neigh
bors are hiving fun with the bank cashier.
The mis jrable condition of Moline ave
nue at Thirty eighth street is yet a sub
ject of much comment, and it docs seem
as though the city authorities ought to
be able to remedy it in someway. In
conversation with an Argus representa
tive this morning John Ghlweiler stated
while he did not wish it to be considered
as a reflect. on on anyone, the avenue was
in such a condition that the firm of Carse
& Ohlweiler would donate the use of a
team for a lay cr two to haul macadam
to fill up ti e hole, and he was under the
impression that other firms would do the
same. It should be hardly necessary to
do this, but if something is not done by
the city at once it will be justifiable as a
means of public safety.
For somi time complaints have been
made to the city of the attempt on the
part of land owners south of Ninth ave
nue to fill up with brush, etc., the ditch
which drains considerable of the property
on Twenty-fourth street. So many had
been the complaints from these property
holders that yesterday Mayor McCono
chie instructed City Attorney Haas to
prepare an injunction restraining those
obstructing the ditch from further doing
so. Judge Pleasants approved of the in
junction and required a bond of $500.
but strange to to say, when it was pre
sented not one of the property holders
interested c u!d be induced to sign it and
consequently it was dropped.

Sullivan returned to his hotel la3t night
after the play at Harper's theatre in ap
parently his usual spirits. He retired
shortly after, and it is supposed enjoyed
a good night's rest. This morniog, how
ever, he arose quite early and was de
cidedly out of sorts. He was snappy and
snarled at those about him and it was
plainl visible that he was in a bad humor.
As has been his custom for
several months past he took a long walk
before breakfast with another member of
the company, and whether the two had
been drinking or not is not known. On
returning it was seen that his temper had
not been improved, and tho other mem
bers of the company did not put them
selves in bis way any more than was ne
cessary. He came down from his room
about 6:20 o'clock and after a few mo
ments conversation with one of the com
pany in the office he entered the dining
reom. Oaly a few persons were in the
room at the time, mainly commercial
men, preparing to leave on tbe early
trains. Sullivan sat at a tal!n nn the
east side of the room, his wife sat at his
right, and directly across the table sat
U. C. Smith, a traveling sik'smin. Sul
livan was indulging in an unusual dis
play of ugliness, he pushed the dishes
violently aside and snappel out
something to the girl who
was waiting on him. Sni'.hwas plainly
disgusted. He eyed the bic chamoicn in
silent contempt, but the latter quickly
noticed it and resented it with with an
insulting remark to which Smith re
sponded with another tqually cutting.
Suilivan was 'angered beyond control.
He arose from his chair and with scarcely
a moment's warning mtde aluagcat the
salesman, bu: the latter was too spry for
him, and stepping qiickly aside he drew
a pistol and before anyone could interfere
he sect a hullet crashing through the
champion's brain. The tragedy caused

Clerk Willerton as with diffi
culty he related the above horrible
dream which he bad last night, to an
Argcs reporter this morning, which he
thought would be rather a good April
fool joke, and so you have it.
