THE ESTDrAKAPOIilS JOVUAX,. THURSDAY. MARCH 29, 1888.
1 CCLL13GS FROM THE COURTS. An Arrest "Which I Thought to B of Un usual Importance. A fins-tnpearing', well-dressed man, rerbaps thirty-five years of age, and wearing Ion? aide-whiskers, who was before tbe Mayor yestordajr morning for vagrancy, at tracted a crreat deal of attention. Be (rave bis name as amoel E. Granger. Captain Camp bell law him about the city early in the mora ine associating with known thieves, and took bim in charge. Granger claimed that he was a street "fakir." but soon aftr his arrest a Mrs. Flick, livine at No. 21 West Maryland street, visited tbe Mayor, and said be had eiven her a letter to deliver to William Evans, who is in tbe county iail awaitine trial on the charge of stealioe about $1.0U0 worth ofhaegajre from tbe depot. The note read: -"Will, am roioff to Brigotwood; you will understand wnt for. " Will let you know more by bearer. Be eareful; I am all rieht." Tbe note was sifned by "Ridenhonr Phipos." Several experts de cided that the sicnatnre was that of Granser, and tne police were so anxious to hold the man until further investigations could be made that tbe Mavor fioed him $23 and costs. As he had money he was committed to the work house. Deliberating Verdict. The Superior Court jury that heard the evi Bene in Coroner Wajner's suit against the Countv Commissioners was instructed yester- 8ay morning, by acting Judse Howland, and re tired at 9:30 o'clock. Late last nieht a verdic bad not been agreed upon, and the opinion pre vailed that there would be a disagreement. The Instructions of Judge Ilowland, like those of 1 ndges Taylor and Solli van in cases o similar character, were very favorable to the plaintiff. Judge IlowUnd said that under the rutins of tbe Supreme Court the eoroner was a judicial offi cer, having the right to order and hold inquests, whenever he deemed it advisable, and the com missioners therefore have no right to attempt to regulate bis office. Although be did not say 90 in so many words, he virtually instructed the Jury to find (or the Coroner in the amount asked. As the sum in dispute is only $75, it is hardly thought the commissioner will enter into another trial in case of a disagreement, as the' costs already are more than four times as much as the amount in dispute. If the jury has not agreed upon a verdict this morning it will be discharged. Will of the Rev. F. C. Holliday. The will of the late Rev. F. C. Holliday, to gether with a codicil, was probated yesterday. As originally drawn it provided for a bequest of rl,000 in money for his daughter, Ellen L. Ab bett, and left the household, its furniture and ibrary, at No. 184 Broadway, to bis daughter, Anna E. Holliday. while the remainder of his state was to be divided equally between his four ihildren. Anna E , Wilbur F., Cortez F. Holii; lay and Sarab W. Poundstone. The codicil was written after the death of bis son, Cortez F. Holliday, and it gives $2,000. instead of $1,000, to Mrs. Abbett. and provides for the equal dis tribution of the remainder of the estate among is other children. Robert N. Lamb is named as executor, and he qualified last evening. Prosecuting the Engineers. There has recently been so much complaint about trains being run inside the city limits Above tbe rate of speed fixed by ordinance, that the police have determined to prosecute en gineers who violate it. Tbe ordinance fixes the rate at ten miles per hour. Tbe prosecution was began yeBterday by takine before tbe Mayor the C, I., St. L. & C. engineer who ran into a wagon at tb Dillon-street crossing several days ago, and seriously injuring two or three persons. After hearing tbe evidence tbe Mayor took tbe ease under advisement until to-day. The police 9ay the ordinance is being violated ty engineers n all tbe roads every day, but they say they Should not be prosecuted as they are required to make the time by the managers of the roads. Purdue Betalos Ills Secret. Alfred K Purdue, who was sent to prison by Judge Howe, yesterday, for refusing to bring his little daughter into court, or deliver her to the mother, who had been given the custody of the child, is still in jaiL Ha reiterated, yester day, bis determination to remain in prison the Remainder of bis days before be would reveal the hiding-place of the eirL Mrs. Purdue ap peared in court again yesterday morning, and requested tbe judge to require Mr. Purdue's parents to produce the child, as it is supposed they know where she is, but the Judge declined to take any further action, as he feit satisfied that Mr. Purdue knew where the eirl was, and 'would bring ber into court whenever he wanted to get out of jail. A Question of Jurisdiction. The eases against the half-dozen saloon-keepers, arrested several days ago for violating the new city ordinance requiring all saloon-keepers within two miles of the city to pay a license of $100, were called before the Mayor yesterday morning, bnt a trial was delayed by the attor ney for tbe defendants holding that the Mayor had no jurisdiction in the cafes of those who do business outside the township. As several of the number under bond are located outside of Center township, the Mayor took tbe matter of jurisdiction coder advisement until to-day. The saloon-Keepers to be prosecuted have banded together, and propose to resist conviction by tak ing tbe case to the Supreme Court if necessary. He Mlsjaleed Ilia Chances. The trial of Charles Lewis, for robbing the Bates House news stand of $70, was concluded in the Criminal Court yesterday afternoon, ar d the jury, after being out but a few minutes, re turned a verdict of guilty, and fixed his punish ment at three years in tbe penitentiary. On tbe first trial Lewi was sentenced to the peni tentiary for but one year, and. had be been sat isfied with the sentence, be would now have but five months to serve instead of three years. His attorney will not make another effort for a new triaL ' Wants To Be Punished. , 'Squire Cameron, arrested on Tuesday night by detective Thornton on tbe charge of robbing the residence of Mrs. Julia Moores, on North Alabama street, waived examination before the Mayor yesterday morninir. and was snt to jail to await the action of the grand jury. H is willing to plead guilty, and desires to receive his punishment as soon as possible. Cameron was formerly one of the best printers in the eity. Released un Bail. J. IL Bains, one of the men arrested on the charge of passing counterfeit silver certifi cates in Goodland, was released, yester day, on a $10,000 bond given by friends from Jasper ands'ewton counties. Sapp, who, ar rested in Loeansnort on a like charge, is sup po?ed to have operated with Bains, remains in jail. . " The. Day fir Gm WillUmi'i Trial. The trial of Gus Williams for the murder ef Hardin Veoable has been set for the Criminal Co art next Thursday. Williams has employed an attorney, and will make the de fense that tbe guu was accidentally discharged. Tbe fact that be was at one time an inmate of the Insane Hospital will also be brought before the jury. - Sent to the Work-House. Fraak Wannamaker, the alleged horse buyer, from Rochester, N. Y., who secured smalt amounts of money from several lral horse deal ers, by reptesen ting that lie bad in his poss sion a check for 4.700, was fined $25 and costs by the MayoV. yesterday morning, and sent to the work-house for ten dys Notes of Litigation.

New England Farmer To determine whether a cow has tuberculosis is not always easy. The coueh is- an indication, so is tbe swelling of the glands of the neck, but animals not affected with this disease may show similar symptoms. Eating, drmking and exer cise usually aggravate a cough whatever the primary cause mav be. Veterinarians judge of the presence of tuberculosis by the sounds beard when the ear is placed against the ribs of the animal over the region of the lungs, or by the character of tbe sound made by thumping against the walls of the chest. Over a diseased lung the sounds are dull or dead rather than clear and ringing. Animals long afflicted with this disease usually become thin in flesh and poor feeders, but in tbe early stages the appetite may be good, and in excep tional cases remain so for a long time. It is not unusual to find fat. animals at tbe slaughter houses more or less affected with tuberculosis. For a while the mi'.k is not necessarily dimin ished. Veterinarians are non agreed as to tbe danger from the use of the milk, but there can be no douht about it when the disease affects the udder, giving the cow a "gargety" appearance, that is, with knots and hard places. It will not do to pronounce the cow tuberculous because she is a highly bred Jersey, though the disease is doubtless more prevalent among animals that have been coddled and housed in hot, poorly ven tilated barns than amons such as have been ex posed more fieely to the pure atmo3phere of heaven. Thoueh Pine Hedge farm constantly carried from twenty to thirty rattle, most of which were raised on the farm, and all eventual ly fattened and sold for beef, except young breeding bulls, no case of tuboreulosis was ever known to be developed there. During forty rears' experience with cattle to loss by death or disease occurred among animals over six months old, except in one or two cases of accident Several ealvea were lost br injudicious feeding, usually over-feedine on milk that was too cold, and older cattle have also been injured by over feeding. It is only within th past few years that tuberculosis has been forcibly brought to the attention of cattle-owners, thoueh the dis ease has long existed in EngUnd and other Eu ropean countries. Consumption in human be ings is beginning to be admitted' by medical men as a eontagmns disease, and it is also be lieved by many that this disese in the human family is largely due to the consumption of the milk or flesh of tuberculoid eattle.

Consent! Terr llaute Express. Why cot let Badeaa dropnjih a doll thuif AFFAIRS OF THE RAILWAYS. Competent Men in Kvery Respect. A gentleman who holds an official position on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy road was in the city, last evening, and in answer to numer ous qeetions put to him by a Journal reporter said that there were no morecompetent engineers engaged on any road than those on the C, B. & Q. They had come from four sources. First, several hundred men off of the Philadelphia & Beading road, all of whom were veterans in the service. Then there had some- three hundred come from "roads in New England, where they had been running for years and were paid by the month $60 and $G5, and earning $125 to $140 on a road like the C, B. & Q. seemed to them to be big pay. These New England engineers are really, be said, su perior men; know how to handle an engine and repair it. if necessary. Then, thirty ormore come over from England, and they were equal in every respect to the best engineers that run on American roads. Finally there were a num ber of engineers which came off of other roads, who were not members of the Brotherhood, who were good men. as an engineer to run and not be a member of the Brotherhood, roust neces-, earily be first-class in every respect to hold hia position. He said the reports of burning en gines, smashing men's fingers, and knocking ears to pieces were all false: There was not a road on which Brotherhood engineers were em ployed which had been more exempt from acci dents than the C, B. & Q. He said that one of the most striking feature of the situation was the faot that the new engineers were hauling over the road with the same engine three to five cars more than the old engineers would, hauling trains over tbe grades where it bad been the custom of the old engineers to double up, taking more time on the road, and increasing expenses. Reasserted that the C. B. & Q. was the first rdad in this country to issue an order to striking em ployes that unless the men (meaningthe switch-, men) were at their post at a certain hour of a certain day, that they would never again be em ployed by the C, B. & Q. road. He states fchat 'the business men of Chicago, and other promi nent points on the system, are with the" road, and as opportunity offers will show their ap proval by turning their business on jtothe C:, B. & Q., so far as possible. The New Union Station. Contractor Shnltz, of Pittsburg, js in the city for a few days and proposes to row push work on the sheds of tbe new Union Riitoay station. Meantime Roadmnster Witty is pl acing the track in tbe portion of tbe sheds now vp in line and ballasting it, preparatory to laying the "pave ment. As soon as this ii done the west-end baggage room will be occupied a a waiting-room and ticket-office, while the remainde" of the old depot is being torn down and the new sheds completed. Work on the interior of the station proper is progressing rapidly. It is becoming more evident that the new statiou will furnish ample room for any crowd which will come to Indianapolis in many years. The waiting-space between the station proper and the sheds .will 0e 355 feet long by forty wid, will be paved, covered and lighted with electricity, and be made as comfortable as the general waiting rooms. Personal, Local ami State Wots a. C. W. Fairbanks, solicitor of the Ohto. Indiana & Western road, left last evening for New York. H. R. Dering, assistant general passenger aeent of the Pennsylvania lines, who has been in Florida for a couple of weeks, returned yes terday. The lionisville, Evansville & St Louis road has reduced the number of freight brakemen to each train to two, which order affects fifteen7 train crews. '-'C. John Ewan, superintendent of the Indianap olis division of the Bee-line, is expected bom from Hot Springs to-morrow. He is much im proved in health. The C, B. & Q. has declared the notice that they would restore rates to tariff, on April 1, is void until further notice, which has rather un settled freight matters again. .5 It is intimated that the Pennsylvania Compa ny will make no further reduction of men in; their numerous shops but will still further cut down expenses by cutting down the number of hours of work. Traffic with the coal roads has drooped off 50 per cent within the last ten da vs. Dealers and maaufacturers are welt stocked no for this season of the year, and business with the roada with this class of freight is likely to be dull for some months. Charles O Scull, weU known in Indianapolis railroad circles, has asuraed the duties of gen eral passenger agent of the Baltimore Ohio road, temporarily, and should Mr. Abbott de eline to accent the position, it is understood that. Mr. Scull will permanently eccupy the place. Bueyrus machine shops are building two of the "largest and most powerful steam shovels in this country for the Lake Shore road. One of them will be put in service at Rome, Ind.. It is expected that thev will handle 5.000 eubio yards of dirt or gravel in ten hours. Col. Harry Crawford was in the city yesterday nn legal business. In speaking of th C. B. & Q. strike, he said that the company had not onlyf had the engineers and firemen's strike to con tend with, but a'so the action of the cowardly roads running out of Chicago. H. Moore, general maoager of the Indiana Midland road, was in the city yesterday. He states that as soon as there is decent weather: for laying track the construction men will push, on trf Rockville The rails are on the ground ; and the other necessary material. Grand Master Sargent, of the locomotive fire men, and T. S. Ingram m. of the locomotive en gineers, are going over the C. B & Q. system paying the engineers and striking firemen as they were paid by the C, B. & O., taking the money from a fund laid by for that purpose. Tbe Mexican National road has contracted with the St. Charles car works to build 300 cars, and is in the market tor 400 more, which the Indianapolis ear-works will likely secure. The cara are to be thirtv-four feet long, eaninned with all modern improvements, such as the Wagner car-door and air-brakes. A feeline prevails in railroad circles that the Missouri Pacin system is : goine to pieces much after the fashion that the Wabash iid a few years ago. While the annual report of the Mis souri Pacific alone is not so bad, the group of roads attached to it seem to be in a had way. The Iron Mountain shows a deftit of $443,555 in 1887, against a surplus of $1,033,805 in 18S. The M., K. & T. has a deficit of $1,293,705. It is stated that some of the loal passenger agents are still receiving commissions from, Western roads on tickets sold, and their general psssen'tar agents wink at the matter, although, having agreed to discharge any aeent who re ceived commissions. The general passenger agents permit the thing to go on, as the local agent gives usually his entire commission to the passenger purchasing a ticket as a rebate. E. B. Thomas, who recent'y retired from the general managership of the Richmond & Dan ville system, has been presented with a set of very complimentary resolutions passed by the executive committee of the board of directors of that system. The engrossed copy is said to be a work of art. It is morroco bound, satin lined, and each of the preambles and resolutions is printed bv hand in exquisite design upon sepa rate sheets of fine parchment. The uniform classification which it is pro posed to adont by all roads between the Atlan tic and Pacifie coast is practically completed, and will soon be presented to the eeneral mana gers for their approval. It is well settled that all lins esst of tbe Missouri river will adopt it. and probably the Southern roads, but there is a good deal of doubt regarding what action the transcontinental lines will take in the matter. Should the interstate commission take hold of the subject it is highly probable that the uni form classification will become generaL Although the coupon committee was unable to report at the annual meeting of general passen ger and ticket agents held in Florida, several of the Northern roads will at once take steps to adopt it on their respective lines. There will he a separate color for each kind of ticket; green for first-c!as. canary color for second-class, sal mon for third-class, and stone-gray for round trip tickets. Tnis scheme waa first suggested in the Journal. Robert Starbuck, chief train-dis-patrher of the I., D. & S. road, being the. orig inator of the idea. He at that time was a pas senger conductor on the Bee-line. Farm Notes. Salt aids digestion, and prevents worms In eatt'e. It should be kept within reach of eattle, and they will take only as rruch as they need. Prof. Arnold says that rovs fed on meal mixed with straw cnt and moistened, will give m ore and richer milk than when fed on the best hay alone. Fire is the best preventive of disesss in tbe orchards and vmevards. If all the old wood be piled np and burned it will greatly lessen dis ease and insect attacks. It should, be done early in the season. A writer in Vick's Monthly says of pear blight: First, cnt away all blight parte and barn them; then get a barrel of salt and scatter it oat around as far as the roots extend, sav, eight or ten feet, at least one-half peck to a tree. We think it almost a sure core. , t t. It pays better sometimes to keep a patch of rye for pasturing instead of allowing; it to grofT and mature. If nsei as green food until grass shail become plentiful the rye may be plowed under and the land put in German millet, which is a snmir.er crop. By this method no loss of time or crop will result. A sheep-breeder in Byers, CoL. has South down lambs, not more than six months old, that weigh 140 pounds each. They were brought from Canada, and it has been estimated that they will elip twelve pounds of wool, at least, by the time they shall be fourteen months old, i American Cultivator: "Ten acres well tilled is sufficient to support a family; and when this fact is fall demonstrated and f uliy appreciated the number of farms will be doubled and the yield will be increased in "still greater ratio, wbi.e much of our abandoned land' will teem with abundant harvests and thorough culture. l -..fA'S-"',--.,-. ?
