SPECK'S ERRATIC HEN
A Fowl Which Lays Eggs in Assorted
John F. Speek, of No. 305 West Eleventh
street, has a hen he is proud of. She is only
six mouths and u half old, aud has adopted
a unique style in producing eggs. Becom
ing tired of laying (hem in the old monoto
nous manner aud having them all of the
same size or nearly so, this energetic bird
has hit upon a good scheme, by which it
seems almost possible to get egg-laying down
to a science. Now, there is nothing
mean about the fowl, as she gives
full measure every day in the week, and
half the time almost double the amount of
shell, etc., expected by custom aud usage.
The plan of Speck's hen is just this : On
Monday she will drop an egg about the
dimensions of a good-sized turkey's effort,
and then on Tuesday will produce an egg of
the regulation measurement. Then on
Wednesday a laige egg will make its ap
pearance ; on Thursday a small one, and so
on, alternating each day from large
to small. There is no telling what she will
do next, but her owner fully expects that
next week she will begin to have the day of
the week engraved on each egg, a sort of
a voucher, so to speak, of Speck's story.
Samples of* the eggs, however, have been
left at this office, where they will be free for
inspection to those interested in the matter.

A BATCH OF BLUNDERS
IGNORANT REPUBLICAN CAM
CHARGE OF MALADMINISTRATION
A Mare's Nest In Which Collectors Kyne
and Bedford Figure—The Different
Phases Pat Upon It by True Statements.
The morning <Mgan of to-day makes an
attack on county tax collectors Bedford and
Kyne, citing two cases of "maladministra
tion." The first Instance it gives as follows;
"A few days ago the Rev. Adam Stengle,
pastor of the Union M. E. Church and a
resident of the Third ward, called upon
Collector Bedford to pay his taxes. Mr.
Bedford ran his eye over the list and directly
informed Mr. Stengle that he was a "delin
quent." The latter surprised at the state
ment replied that he had paid his taxes for
1881 ; the collector asked the preacher to show
his receipt, but finally offered to place his
name on the lists. To this Mr.8tengle objected
because he doubted the collector's right to
replace his name. His receipt for 1881 ig
dated October 3, 1881, signed by Bedford
himself and is for $1.80. Mr. Stengle
assured a reporter of the Morning Keton that
he got the receipt iu the office of the collec
tors at 602)4 Market street. There is no
doubt, however, that he was returned as a
delinquent. His name, "Rev. A. 8teugle,"
is the laßt in the column of the letter 8 for
the Third ward, and has $4 put down in the
tax column. That Is, Mr. Stengle paid
Charles H. D. Bedford $1.80 for taxes, and
by order of the Levy Court Mr. Bedford is
allowed $4 more, making In all $5.80 to his
To a Gazette reporter to-day Mr. Bed
ford said that it was not unlikely that be
had received Mr. 8tengle's taxes and yet
marked him off as a delinquent. If so it
was a mere clerical error, which he had a
right to correct on being informed of It.
Mr. Stengle, however, had refused to allow
him to look at the receipt as well as de
clined to allow his uame to be placed upon
the lists, when he had freely offered to do
it. Mr. Stengle states that his name has to
lie attached to it in the tax
marked opposite his name, which is not at
the bottom of the S column, is $400, and
the tax is Just $1.80 for which he professes
to have a receipt. The statement in the
morning organ tends to indicate that Mr.
Bedford on Mr.Stengle's tax has $5.80 to his
credit, that is the $1.80 and the alleged $4,
and that he is lxnefltted by getting a com
mission upon this sum, just as if he had
collected it. This is not the case. Tax col
lectors are " allowed " for delinquents : in
other words,relieved from further trouble in
in collecting, but they get no commission on
what they do not collect.
Mr. Bedford says : "I do not deny that
tax collectors make some mistakes. They
are not infallible. People come up here and
hurry us, and get mad if we don't do thingB
in less than no time, so that it must neces
sarily happen occasionally that wrong names
arç marked off as paid, by mistake. When
ever we notice these errors we correct them.
There Is not a business in which bills which'
have been paid
take. The city tax collectors do it time and
time again. I know instances where we have
marked off property tax as paid by mistake,
and have had to pay it to the Levy Court."
MK. KYNE'S STATEMENT.
is incorrect. The assessment
scut out again by mis
The other case to which the morning organ
alludes, is that of Charles H. Reed, a heater,
employed by the McCullough Iron Com
pany. Reed says that he called on Collector
Kyne for the purpose of paying his 1882 tax;
that he was told that he was a delinquent for
1881; that he showed a receipt for 1881, and
Mr. Kyne offered to give him a receipt for
1882 on the strength of this one, and that
he (Reed) "concluded to do without it."
The stateineut concludes : "Mr. Reed's
name is among the delinquents for 1881 to
the amount of $2. His tax was 90 cents.
Thus Collector Kyne not only got the 90
cents of actual cash but also credit for $2
more from the county."
Mr. Kyne's statement shows how partizau
and unfair the morning organ is, and it puts
a construction on it that the ignorant writer
of the article will not like to see. The col
lector says : "Mr. Reed came here and
By reference to my
hooks I found that he has been returned as
a delinquent. Explanation showed that a
mistake had been made. His son George
M. Reed had not paid his tax and the son's
name appearing directly under Charles
II. Reed's name, I had inadvertently and in
haste, marked the tax for 1881 which he
had a receipt for, to bis son The law al
lows us to correct such errors aud I told
hlm I would go to the Clerk of the Peace
aud have the return as a delinquent cor
rected and then take his tax. He was per
fectly satisfied, aud said he was not busy
and would call again and pay the tax. He
also apologized for hot language he had
ußcd before the matter was explained. Now
as to the statement that I was credited by the
Levy Court with 90 cents aud a tax of $2
addition, for which Charles H. Reed is a de
linquent. This statement is false I was
credited with 90 cents, which I had collected
from him but by mistake had given it to his
son. There was no tax of $2. There was an
assessment oi $200 opposite his name, which

How It Is Proposed to Have It In Haiti
A reporter called at the Chicago beef es
tablishment, on the southwest corner of
Eutaw and Camden streets this morning,
the proprietors of which are Messrs. 8wift
Bros., the great Chicago butchers,
reporter was received by Mr. S. A. Living
ston, the resident manager of the enterprise,
who in answer to questions made the fol
lowing statement : "The Swift Bros., one
of whom is a resident of Chicago and the
other of Boston, recognizing the superior
advantages of Baltimore, her complete rail
road system and terminal facilities, her fast
all-rail line and cheap transportation from
the great West, availed themselves of those
opportunities and established in Baltimore
this great and important enterprise. When
we first opened here early In August our
sales amounted to but four car loads per
week, or 148 cattle, and have
steadily increased until
sell from 14 to 15
week, equal to 550 head of cattle. At
our headquarters in Chicago we are now
slaughtering 1,000 cattle per day, which are
shipped iu our large relrigerator ears to all
the large cities of the East where we have
an established agency At each of these
agencies .a patent refrigerator storehouse is
specially fitted up with all conveniences and
modern appliances for the preservation ol
the meat, which cau be kept fresh aud sweet
for an almost indefinite length of time, as
it is kept at a temperature at about freezing
point from the time the beef is shipped until
it is sold to the numerous butchers, green
groceries and otjiers who are getting it daily
in large quantities from the establishment.
The beef that you see here now was killed
in Chicago three days ago, and is far
superior to any cattle killed here yes
terday and offered for sale to-day. By our
process the meat can be kept a week,
where the home beef will smell in 48 hours
after it is killed,
mouths we used 2,.500 pounds of ice per day
to keep up the required temperature, but
now, as the weather is getting cooler, we
only use 1,500. In cold weather 300 pounds
is sufficient. The beef slaughtered here in
your city is sold by only a few of the
butchers ; in fact, I could not mention the
names of 25 of them who don't purchase
their beef from
and dressing their own meat
car loads per
in preference to killing
as they have
been doing heretofore, and are now offering
it at much less rates foi
of meat. While but 15
be brought here in
hold from 30 to 40 dressed cattle, saving the
shrinkage in weight incident to a long trip
by rail. It Is claimed that our meat is
better than if brought from Chicago
a superior quality
16 live cattle can
the same car will
condition when driven to the slaughter
house there, while the fatigue of a long
railway journey always deteriorates the
quality' of the beef." At this point the
scribe was Introduced to Mr. J. A. Flack,
a prominent beef butcher of Lexlngtou
market. That gentleman, when asked as to
the quality and prices of Chicago beef, re
plied Chat he has been selling It from the
start. He says,: "Why, I buy this beef
from 1 )4 to two cents a pound less than 1 can
buy live cattle for at the drove yards. The
recat ia the beat iu the market, an * has the
preference over our home beef. My custo
mers don't want any other but the Chicago
beef. Where I used to make a profit, of $15
or $20 on market days on my own killed
beef, I now make on this beef just three
times the amount of profit, and can afford
to sell at a much low r er figure. Poor
people formerly had to do with one
pound of beef for a family of
eight because the price was too high for
them, but now they can get two pounds for
the same amount of money, and have a finer
and fresher piece of meat. The beef sold by
Messrs. Swift Brothers here, which is dressed
In Chicago, i6 in a splendid condition and
of the fittest quality ; it is cleaner and at less
price than that brought here on the hoof.
As their arrangements are so perfect for
keeping it any length of time there is no
loss, so their facilities are such that they cau
place the most choice beef within the reach
of every one, in fact, at a trifle above the
actual cost. The butchers are all awakeued
to the merits of the house and are purchas
ing daily large quantities of the beef."
During the stay of the reporter there
were at least fiftv butchers in
waiting with their wagons, each buying
several hundred dollars' worth of beef.
Retail prices will soon go down aud uuless
all signs fail the slaughtering of Western
cattle in our Eastern cities will soon be a
thing of the past. The sales of beef per day
at this establishment amount to $2,500. At
present there are one hundred stores estab
lished in various parts of the city where the
sale of Chicago beef is made a specialty.
The reporter stopped in one of these, situ
ated on Camden street near Hanover, and
was surprised to see the great number of
customers going in and out, and purchasing
large quantities of the meat. The sales at
this particular store, which are all by retail,
amount to $350 per day, and on Saturdays
between $900 and $1,000. This store alone
sells forty-seven head of cattle per week.

Quite a sensation was created this after
noon by a report that Morris Michael, pawn
broker, of No. 6 North Front street, bad de
clared that the pistol that John M. Mo
Guffln had testified to having taken away
from Colonel Slayback in the shooting
affray at the Foot - Dispatch office last Friday
really belonged to Slay back, add that he

the Coroner, late this evening recalled the
jury that sat on the inquest and summoned
Michael before it, who swore that he iden
tified the weapon as
Colonel Slayback about four mouths ago
aud that it still retained his private trade
mark. This establishes the ownership of
the pistol, about which there has been so
much doubt, aud overthrows that part of
Mr. Clopton's testimony which stated that
Colonel Slayback was not armed.
The Bar Association of the city met to-day
and adopted a long resolution on the death
of ColoHel A. W. Slayback. Alter paying
a glowing tribute to that gentleman's char
