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

Alabama street, waived examination before the
Mayor yesterday morninir. and was snt to jail

charge of passing counterfeit silver certifi
cates in Goodland, was released, yester

Tuberculosis tn Cattle.
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.
Facta Versua Theories.
Fbiladelpbia Inquirer. . ,
Women some of them at Uast are pleading
for their rights of representation in the jury
box and other public places. ; Then, thev say,
will crime be punished and various reforms as
sured. But let them look at the spectacle of
dozens of women visiting.Barclay Peak in jail,
taking bim flowers and delicacies. Woat
would these woman do in a jury box Hang a
man! Never. When we decide to grant women
a place in tbe jury-box we may as well abolish
capital punishment That "pity is akin to
love" is frequently dmontrat1 by weak-mind
ed women, who look, upon murderers in jail rs
heroes.

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.

H. R. Dering, assistant general passenger
aeent of the Pennsylvania lines, who has been

train crews.

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

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.

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

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.
