Owing to the late arrival of several wit nesses for the propecuion the ease of Thomas Short vs. Ottiecr Andrew Moore, charged with assault and battery was not called at the Municipal Court uuttl 5 30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The testimony of Charles Retter, Samuel Keenan and Mrs. Parker,who saw the whole affair was to the effect that Short was assists log to arreat the colored man Brown, with whom officer Tlbbett had considerable trou ble, when officer Moore come Into the room where they were scuffling on Locust street and wlthour saying a word drew his black jack aud hit Short a severe blow on the head laying the bone bare for the space of an inch and a-balf. The defendant made substantially the same statement as published in the dally papers at the time of the disturbance and stated on oatb that be was trying to assist the officer when Moore hit him with a blnck Short staled that he lives at 812 ust street and that Brown ran into the house next door and was closely followed by Tlbbett, and seeing that the officer was outnumbered aud would possibly be ill-used had made his way Into the neighbor's house and was assisting In putting Brown out when assaulted by Moore. 8 everal other witnesses ware heard as to unimportant facts, and the defense was abou to be heard when Judge Cum mius suddenly adjourned the court, with the statement that he was compelled to make a train and had but a few minutes to do so in. He announced that the case would be heard on Monday morning at 9 o'clock, until which time the case would be adjourned. Chief Hawkins acte 1 in the capacity attorney for the officer, and severely cross questioned each witness for the prosecution and several times questioned the Judge'in matters relating to the case. Jack. Low ot TBK CASE DISMISSED. Immedlately after the Municipal Court c nvened this morning the case of Short vs. Moore, was taken up. The witnesses for the defence all testified that the officers at tempting to arrest Brown would have suc ceeded with considerable less trouble bad Short kept away. It was also shown that Officer Moore had warned 8 hort. to keep his hands off Brown, three times before hitting bim with a black jack. The testimony for the defence being all In, Officer Moore made, a statement alter which Judge Cummins re viewed the testimony, sayiug in conclusion that from the evidence there was no assault and battery, as the blow was not struck with malice and only to drive from the pris ouer those who were interfering in the ar rest of one who properly belonged In the hall, and dismissed the case. ARCHBISHOP BKCKEK. Privat« Confirmation of the Rumor of His Elevation. [Special to Sunday Star] Philadelphia, 8 ept. 29.—The story flrst published in The Star to the effect that Bishop Becker, of your city, was likely to succeed the late Bishop Wood as head of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, appe have been confirmed by private information, recently received here from Europe. A high Catholic dignitary, who is In constant com munication with weil-luformed source« in Rome, at first refused to credit the statement of Bishop Becker's probable elevation, but he has. within the past few days, quietly Informed a few per sonal friends that he has had reason to charge bis mind, and that while he docs not regaad the appointment of Bishop Becker as absolutely settled, yet he has good reasou to believe that the Pope has almost determined upon his appointment, and it will he officially announced in a short time. Bishop Becker's scholastic at tainments, and his conservative character, and firmness of mind, were the qualities which gained him favorable consideration at Rome. are to A FATAL DI8CHAKGK. A Young Lad Accidently »hot While Gun ning. A very distressing accident occurred near Newark, on Saturday afternoon, whereby Archie Homewood, a 15 year old son oi William Homewood, lost his life. He, in company with two or three companions, started out gunning, and while attempting to climb the fence that surrounds Home wood Driving Park the hammer of his gun caught and the contents were dis charged into ing the jugular vein, panionß, who were in advance, heard the discharge and immediately following the cry, "I'm shot." They ran to his assist ance, but he expired in a tew minutes. Cor oner Smith aud Dr. Ogle visited Newark yesterday and gave a certificate of death from accidental shooting. The young lad was well liked by all who knew him. his left side sever con Hla Failed to Come Off. About 2,000 people assembled along the banks of the Brandywine, at tbe Eleventh street bridge, about 5 o'clock Saturday evening, to witness the swimming match between William Grantlln and George Little, tbe amateur champion. Little was on hand at tbe hour appointed,5.30,all readv the swim of 100 yards, and waited pa tiently until 6 o'clock tfor Grantlln, who failed to put In an appearance. At 6 o'clock Little jumped overboard, but as the water was too cold for a swim for the fun of It soon came out of the water and left. Little started that the only way he could account lor Grantlln's absence was that he was afraid to swim. The match was for a gold medal, for which neither was to contribute. From that it was reasonable to infer that Grantlln was afraid to swim, being fearful that Little would beat him easily. A Handsome Gift. Saturday the genial and efficient ovrseer of the Arlington cotton mills in the Ninth ward, William T. Woodward, severed his connection with that establishment to ac ccpt a position as superintendent of mills Nos. 1 and 3 of Messrs. J. P. Crozer Son« A Co., at Upland, Pa. As an appreciation of their kind regard for Mr. Woodward, the employes of the spinning room at the Ar lington Mills surprised him Saturday after noon with a gift ol a handsome silver water pitcher and cake basket. A Good Performance. "Young Mrs. Winthrop," a four-act play, was presented at the Opera House by the Madison Square Theatre Company of N*»w York, last Saturday evening, before a large audience. The characters were few in num ber, and each was well portrayed. The rep resentations of Miss Jean Clara Walters as Mr». Ruth Winthrop , Mrs. Blanche Weaver as Mr». Dick Chatwyn , and Mr. William Gillette as Buxton Scott were particularly good. fol Died Suddenly. Owen Murph}, aged 66 years, an employe of the Pusey A Jones Company, died sud denly at his residence, on Gilpin avenue near DuPont streets, yeeterdav afternoon. Deputy Coroner Palmer and Dr. 8 prlnger investigated the case and gave a certificate of death from heart disease. FOND HOPÖMIEALIZED THE ACTIVES WIN A GAME IN WILMiNGTON THE INTEB-STATE SCHEDULE The Brooklyn Oink A head-Saturday's dam« In This Oltjr—Other Scores and Notes. For the first time daring the entire season, Saturday afternoon, the Active base ball club of Reading ucceeded in defeating the Quicksteps on the latter's grounds. The game was close and exciting throughout. Morris, the phenomenal left handed pitcher, tossed the ball for the Actives, and Henry officiated in this capacity for the Quicksteps. Both pitchers were very effective, and the hits were few, though the Quicksteps did not "fan the air" as helplessly as they did (he last time they faced Morris. Up to the sixth inning the score was —1 to 1—and then the Actives took a slight lead by home plate another the Quicksteps came to the bat in the eighth inolng Benners made a magnificent drive to left field for three bases—the longest clean bit ever seen on the field—aud came home on Hoover's hit. No more runs were made this Inning and the Actives refused to play their half of the Inning, on the plea that It was too dark to This, of course, would have to put the score back to the end of the seventh Inning, when It stood 2 to 1 In favor of the visitors. Umpire Holland, under the im pression that the innings were even, called game, and the Reading players left the field. The Indignant audience crowded around them and demanded that the game be finished. They were obstiuate, however, and it was not until they received a gentle intimation that their share of the gate money would be retained that they relented and returned to the field. The next inning the Actives again took the load by scoring one run. The Quick step almost made another tie in their half of the ninth Inning, when Rlckley made a fine two-baaser to centre field. Cusick advanced bim a base by a short hit, and was declared out a first by tlie umpire, although the base man dropped the ball that was fielded to him. This palpably unjust decision was loudly booted. Pyle ended the Inning and the game by striking out, leaving Rickley third. The game was an exhibition contest, and not one of the championship series. It was well played throughout, au 1 altogether was one of the most interesting, exciting and closely contested games ever seen in this city. The full score is as follows: QUICKSTEP. A.B. K. IB. T.B.

A Saloon Keeper A annulled—Two of His Asaailanta Arrested. About 12.30 Sunday morning six young men, all of whom were slightly under the Influence of liquor, rapped at the door of the saloon at Second and French streets and demanded something to drink. Joseph Austin, who wa»in charge, opened the door ond told them that hr could not accommo date them as it was after 12 o'clock. After talking in a quiet manner for a few minutes and finding that Austin would not sell them anything, one of the crowd without the slightest warning, hit Austin a stinging blow in ths face with his fiat. Without a moment's hesitation Austlu charged upon his assailant, and was getting the best ef him when they fell. The five associates immediately began kicking and beating Austin In a brutal manner when Officers Cannon and Vickers appeared upon the scene and attempted to arrest the six rowdies. A general fight was the result end de spite the efforts of the officers all escaped with the exception of two, who were marched off to the hall, fighting all the way ud and making the officers exert every effort posai ble to get them to the hall. When they arrived there they drew the officers into the cell And attempted to beat them and were only subdued after being given the severe treatment which they so richly deserved. During the melee Austin sustained a num ber of bruises about the body besides an uely cut in the head which bled profusely. Officer Canr.on had his coat almost pletely torn off of him. strayed Away or Ixist.
