New York, Nov. 19. —A meeting of
steamboat owners and transportation line
manag« rs was held at the office of Mr. J.
H. S tarin today for the purpose of making
further arrangements for the grand steam
boat parade, which is to be one of the lea
tu res of the forthcoming centennial of
Evacuation Day. It was reported that from
present indications ut least 400 boats
would appear In the parade. These
iuclude some of the largest passenger steam
boats plying on the Hudson river, as well as
tugboats, ferry-boats and other steam craft.
A dozen or more floating elevators, with
their tall towers gaily decorated, will appear
iu line. Mr. Starlu's representative said to
a reporter: "I have every reason to believe
that this parade will be a complete success
in every sense of the word. All the expense
to be incurred will be deirayed by the
owners ot the boats, aud we will not ask the
citizens' committee for a single cent of as

THE MUNICIPAL COURT.
THE HEARING BEFORE JUDGE
CUMMINS LAST EVENING.
HELD UNDER THE 90 DAYS LAW.
Th« McDonnell Com Again Suspiciously
Postponed—Ow
at the Opera House
Last Night.
The City Hall room waa crowded last
evening during the hearings before the
Municipal Court. The attendance of the
crowd was occasioned no doubt by the fact
that it had become known that a case
would be heard in which a well-known pro
fessional thief would be arraigned upon sus
picion of having endeavored to entice a
young man to a lonely spot for the purpose
of robbing him of a gold watch. Two
others were arraigned on the same charge.
The parties arraigned were George 8. Ha
gany. alias "ElUftjhjn," John I
Charles Harris. Théy were char
picion of J. Haye* of end« storing to decoy
him to a lonely spot for tbe purpose of rob
bery. Hayes was a very unwilliug witness
at first and refused to answer several im
Ç jrtant questions put to him by H. C.
urner, Esq., Deputy Attorney General,
but when informed by Judge
that he would have to answer the questions
or be committed, be finally concluded to do
u d
on aus
Cummins
so.
The testimony of Hayes was to the effect
that ( n Sunday afternoon he visited the old
Malta House on Water street in search o» a
friend, and while there he met the
prisoners.
conversation with him and after some desul
tory conversation said to the witness that a
friend of his desired to obtain the body of
"Little Henry" tbe bootblack, who was re
cently burled, and proposed to the witness
that he should personate a doctor. Desiring
to see "the joke" through he assented.
While in conversation with Hagany tbe wit
ness drew his watch from his pocket to as
certain the time. Hat any examined the
watch. The witnesa remained in the com
pany of the prisoners until between 11 and
12 o'clock Sunday night. In the evening
the whole party went to the Delaware House
and remained there until the time stated
above.
"We left the hotel and went out on Ship
ley street, and then 1 had my suspicions
aroused and refused to accompany them to
the cemetery, thinking that it was a job put
up to rob me. I left them and went u
Shipley street and met an officer to whom
related the circumstances."
Sergeant Blackburn testified:I was stand
ing on tbe corner of Sixth and Shipley stree s
on Sunday night about 12 o'clock
watching four or five men stand
the pavement in the
rear of tbe Delaware House. While stand
ing there I heard footsteps coming towards
me, and in a few moments Mr. Hayes came
up and asked if I had seen a man going by
with anything in his hauds. I answered him
no. He appeared to be very much excited.
I asked what kind of an article. He did
uot tell me, but asked if I would go up to
the next corner with hlm. I did so, and
while standing there a man came up on the
west side of Shipley street and turned out
Seventh. Hayes started after the man and
I followed him. He met the man between
Orange and Tatuali and both stopped and
conversed for a few minutes. He then
« rossed over to where I was standing,
and said,
men.
when on West near Sixth I stopped him and
asked where he belong and be replied "I
board at the Swan Hotel." I arrested him
and it proved to be Logan. Hayes told me
who the others were, and how they
deavored to induce him to go to a cemetery.
I naturally concluded that they Intended to
rob him."
Officer Osborne testified that he had
known "Slim Jiin" by sight for over a year.
His reputation in the community was that
of a thief. "We have received orders from
headquarters to arrest all known profes
sional thieves, under the 90 days law, and I
consider Hagany one."
Officer Tucker also testified that the gen
eral reputation of Hagany in the com
munity was that of a thief.
Sergeant Blackburn testified to the same
effect, and said he was the principle one
complained of by Hayeé. When a robbery
is committed in town Hagany is generally
suspected by the citizens as well as the
police.
J. Ilayes, the plaintiff, was recalled and
said be had known Hagany for about eight
yearp and he generally passed as a thief. He
was the principal in Sunday's transaction.
He was the one who made the proposition
to go to the cemetery.
Chief Hawkins testified that he had seen
Hagany serving a sentence in Moyamensing
prison, Philadelphia, under the 90-day law
in Pennsylvania.
In regard to Harris, Hayes testified that
he had never seen him before Sundae,
but he was continually in the party. He
asked me to accomj:
who was locked up.
been selling a preparation to brighten silver
ware and had been arrested on suspicion.
This concluded the testimony and Deputy
Turner read the law on such cases. He
would not ask for the holding of Logan vs.
Harris under the act but Harris might be
held until his character in Philadelphia was
inquired into. He would ask for the hold
ing of Hagany. He would also ask the
Court to publicly refer to the police in re
gard to the arrests. The Court said in
reply that the officer did very properly and
were to be comraeuded.
Deputy Turner then stated *o the Court that
he would not ask that Logan be held under
the law of persons being held for 90 days,
but he thought something was due to the
officers who made the arrests, and he would
call them to testily to their characters.
Deputy—"Yes; they certainly did, and
promptly, too."
"The Judge—"Yes. and they
men."
The Court held T ogan and Hagany in $200
bail for their appearance at the General Ses
sions Court this morning. Harris

MAHONE'S AUDKESS.
It Is Regarded as a Pledge to Co-opperate
With the Republieans.
[Special to the Gazette.]
Washington, Nov. 19.—The address of
Senator Mahone is commented on in some
quarters as indicating a pledge to co
operate with the Republicans. It sets the
organization of the Senate in the hands of
the Republicans beyond any doubt.
A STRAIGHT-OUT REPUBLICAN PRONOUNCES
IT A TISSUE OF FALSEHOODS.
[Special to the Phlla. Press.]
Richmond, Nov. 19.—The receipt of Ma
hone's letter here, in which he charges
wholesale murder In Virginia, has créa tea
the greatest excitement among the Demo
crats. It Is believed by them to be a p
lude to the plot of Mahone and his hoard
canvassers to count out a sufficient number
of Democrats in the Senate to give li m the
majority, and, fearing the result, he pro
poses to have United States troops here to
aid him in his undertaking.
This address is pronounced a tissue of
f&lsehoods. General Wickham, straight-out
Republican, elected by the united votes of
whites and blacks in Hanover over Jones,
Mahone's candidate, is out in a card this
evening in reply. Tbe 8tate Board of Can
vassers meet next Monday.
General Wickham's letter will appear in
tbe Richmond Dispatch to-morrow. Com
menting upon the address of Senator Ma
hone the General says that nothing short of
lunacy would justify such
I e
of
address, and
that tbe wholesale slanders which it con
tains will doubtless be fully refuted by a
statement of figures and facts in tbe next
few days. The statement in the address
that the "crack of the Bourbon weapons en
gaged in political murder resounded and
the Bourbon knife sank deep in the county
of Hanover," causes him, as the representa
tive of those people in the Smote of Vir
ginia, to announce the falsity of the charge.
The letter says that a colored man, a
Coalitionist, had been murdered in Han
over, by a colored Republican; that the
Richmond Whig had le fairness to declare
that it was due to a personal grudge, and
had no political significance whatever; that
William Mahone ought to have known the
(acts of tbe case, and asks, that if he did
not, by what principle ol justice did he
utter such slander against the law abiding
people of Hanover, without assuring him
self of tbe facts lb the case.
THU 8 PKAKKR 8 H 1 P*
Suggestion of a Democra lo Caucus to As
certain the Views of the Members.
[Special to the Gazette.]
Washington, N<-v. 20.— U bas been sug
gested by many Democratic members now
in the city, lhat a caucus be held in the
Capitol building sometime next week. The
purpose of this meeting will be ostensibly
the consideration of the attitude of the
Democratic party and tbe arraugemeut of a
programme of legislation. But in view ot
the embarrassment which attends the selec
tion of a Speaker, this matter will
be the leading subject which will
engage the attentions of the r preset)ta
li ves on that occasiou. Notwithstanding
I he reiterations of the newspapers that each
of tbe candidates has the pledges of a
jority of Democratic members, the truth is
that very few have «tuen their pledaesti* the
support of either candidate. There is a
great uncertainty among them, not only as
to a party policy, but as to the personal pro
clivities of the candidates, especially in refer
ence to the tariff question. They incline to
withhold their promises until there is more
light on this subject. The efforts now being
made to effect this meeting will no doubt be
successful.

Reading Not to Have Its New Bridge.
Reading, Nov. 19. —Some time ago the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company made a
proposition that if this county would give
$20,000 they would erect a handsome iron
»ridge, costing probably $50,000, in place of
the old wooden structure at the foot of Pcnr
street, where the company proposes locating
its depot. This morning the County Solici
tors submitted an opinion to the Commis
sioners that the proposition could uot be
legally accepted aud it was rejected, much
to the regret of a large portion of citizens.
The Board of Trade had endorsed the prop
osition. The railroad company propose!
raising the bridge to such a height that its
own railroad track, as well as those of the
West Reading and Wilmingto 1 & Northern,
should pass under the Hppioaches.

THE MAYBEE TRAGEDY.
REMARKABLE EFFECT OF THE
TERRIBLE AFFAIR.
THE BLIND IS MADE TO SEE
The Shock of the Wound and tlie Horror
of the Bloody Tragedy Restores May
bee's Sight.
Brookvill*, L.' I., Nov. 19.—Early this
morning people began to gather at the house
of Gerritt Maybee and guards had to be
placed at the doors to keep the crowds from
surging through the house. Edward M.
Griffin watched with Mr. Maybee all night.
The wounded man slept fairly well. He
awoke when it was broad daylight. As be
turned in I is bed towards the door he said,
in wonder "Ed, I can see that door. I can
see the lod.;. lean see the light." Then
holding up his hands: "I can see my hands.
The sight Is dim, but yet I sec." When
the doctor arrived Mr. Maybee was
in his usual seat at the window in
the sitting room. He then said
could see the white fence by the
road and could see any one standing before
him, but not distinctly enough to recognize
the features. Mr. Maybee has been unable
to see anything or distingui h the light for
over a year. There was a complete paralysis
of the optic nerve. Dr. Whituey account*
for the partial recovery of sight by saying
that the force of the blows, the bleeding and
the mental shock operated on the optic
nerve much as an electric shock might, re
storing its sensibility. Mr. Maybee will
probably further regain the use of bis eyes.
The effect of restored sight on the whole
6ystem of Mr. Maybee was greatly encour
aging to his friends. He was calmer in mind
and much stronger in body than any one
anticipated.
Soon after 11 o'clock the Coroner aDd his
jury filed into the dining room to begin the
inquest When all was ready old Mr. May
bee was wheeled in his chair through the
folding doors to a place at the table. Dr.
Whitney sat at bis side, to see that the ex

did not injure
Mr. Robert Townsend conducted tbe
examination as representative of the Dis
trict Attorn« y In a quiet way Mr. Maybee
told of his wife ami daughter leaving the
house to go to the barn, of the subsequent
entry of the tramp, of tbe terrible blows
the tramp gave him, of his cries lor help,
of the entry, alter what seemed an
age to him, of his friends and neighbor«, -nd
how he hurried them oil to the barn "After
what seemed half au hour," he continued,
"I heard them return auJ hear«! them talk
ing among themselves in Jow voices. I re
cognized the voice of Jacob Fitting. I told
them to let me know the worst. I was pre
pared lor the worst. Thin Mr Fitting said
he might as well tell me that my wife and
child were dead—dead—"
The o*d man lost control of his voice, tried
to speak a second time and then, clasping
his hands above his h ad, he fell back iu his
chair, trembling as if in great agony and
wholly exhausted. He was cared fot by tbe
doctors and his daughter.
As Mr. William Simonson, who lives a
mile south of Glen head, was hltcbimr up hie
horse to drive over to the tuq .est he saw a
tramp pass his house. The man weut to
the railroad dossing, started up toward
Glenbead and then turn around and
walked south toward Rosylyn. The tramp
answered the d sc:iptiou of thealleg« d
derer. Mr. Simonson employs a colored
man named Bray. Bray followed the tramp
and Mr. Simonson and his son, W. H.,drove
rapidly to Rosylyn and sent out Deputy
Sheriff James Gillespie. Gillespie met tbe
tramp alking with Bray where the turn
pike crosses the railroad, just north
of Rosylyn. He was at first reticent.
The sum of $21.34, in bills, silver and
pei. nies, was found on him. He said he had
more, but gave part to a chum to sreure a
lawyer in case he was arrested. He said his
name was James Doyle. He said he earned
the money in Coldspring, but afterward he
said he earned it in Queens, working for
Farmer Hendrickson He said he had been
a week tramping from Coldspring and that
Saturday night he was iu Westburg.
The people in Brookville claim that the
murderer slept in the Poorhouse on
Friday night. Doyle admitted that
he slept there that night and was
the only tramp in the Poorhouse.
The keeper says that the tramp got
up early Saturday morning, growled at him
because breakfast was not ready, and said
he could get breakfast sooner at some of tbe
bouses and went ofl. When arrested he
w ore a Derby bat. He bad a slouch hat io
his pocket. Before J ustice Losee, of Rosy
lyn, he said he came from Hoi brook,Suffolk
county, and that he slept Sunday night in
Farmer Post's bam, In Westbury. He de
nied that be bad committed any crime. It
was thought in Brookville that Doyle would
be brought before the Coroner. A man
from Rosylyn said that the reason
he was not sent over was that those in
charge of him wanted to know
where the money for the expense for
transportation was to come from first.
George Francis Brown, who was arrested
at Jamaica on suspicion of being the culprit,
confessed that he saw the deed committed
by another man, who was with him. He
was taken to Rosylyn and identified
Do\ le as the n urderer. The Brooklyu
police to-night arrested thre°
