Messrs Looney & Kylly yesterday be
ean suit in Justice Cook's court against
Magistrate H. C. Wivill and Chief of
Police Phil Miller to obtain possession
of 1 40 in money which the complainants
aver belongs to ihm.
Oa thedv the Birnutn shows were in
the city the police picked up Horace
Monroe and George Johuson, two circus
crookB who were fined $100 each for car
rying concealed weapons by Magistrate
Wivill. The pair had $40 in their pos
session, which was used to liquidate a
part of the fine and costs in that case,
the men being kept in j til to lay out the
bclance. Since that time Messrs. Eraser
and Wvnes of Black Hawk identified
some of the articles found in their pos
session, and the pair were then arraigned
for burelarv. Attorneys looney s n.el-
ley were called in to defend them, and
they give the attorneys an order on
Chief Miller for the $40 which had been
turned over to Magistrate Wivill, and the
latter claimed that it had been used in
liquidating the fines of Monroe and John
son. After demanding the money oi tue
magistrate, and being refused, the suit
was brought for the recoverv as above
stated. It will com) up Tor hearing
later in the week.

That the old saying, "Faithful as a dog,
Is a slur on the cat kingdom is well proved
by a little incident which Wallace B. Mil
ter, of Lyon street, relates of a tiger cafe.
The tabby in question was raised by Mr.
Miller's family, and is about 4 years old.
It has always been called Tessie and is a
great pet. Tessie has for the past two or
three years been in the habit of waiting on
the street for Mr. Miller to come home to
his meals. She will go two or three blocks
to meet him, and on his approach bound
ut from a fence as tickled as though she
had killed a dozen rata. She always fol
lows her master home or rides back on his
shoulder, and stays by his side while he
eats his meal. Then she will see him off
again and return home.
Tessie is also very fond of theother m So
bers of the family. When Mrs. Miller and
her daughter are away from home Tessie
becomes lonesome, and generally sets np
such a crying that she is a nuisance to the
neighborhood. For this reason Mr. Miller
decided to get rid of her. lie is the freight
agent of the Starin Transportation com
pany, and gave her to one of the teamsters
at the dock. The man took her away over
on the hill and kept her shut up for sev
eral days. After he thought Tessie had
become accustomed to her new quarters
he gave her a little liberty, and that even
ing she walked into Mr. Miller's office on
the wharf. Tessie was delighted to find
her old master again, and never lost sight
of him, and when he went home followed
A short time ago Mrs. Miller and her
daughter wAe again going away, and an
other attempt was made to dispose of Tes
sie. This time Mr. Miller gave ner to a
captain of one of the steamboats. Tessie
was put in a closed basket and taken to
New York. There sne was snoweu k
wander about the freighthonse. Nothing
was heard of her by Mr. Miller for a day or
. She had been taken to Acw lork on
the Monday night boat.
On the following Friday morning Mrs.
Miller looked out in the yard back of their
house and saw Tessie sitting there wash
ing her face and getting ready apparently
for her reception home, Mrs. Miller let
the faithful little animal in, and the latter
almost went wild with joy. When Mr.
Miller came home she was just as glad to
see him, and the latter made up his mind
that Tessie had come to his house to stay.
Tessie is an -unusually pretty tiger cat,
and one that would anywhere attract the
attention of cat lovers. She can do nearly
all the tricks of a dog, and is just as faith
ful to her master as the best of St. Ber
nards. Xew Haven Register.
