WHAT IS DONE IN COURTS The Liquor-License Case of John Stehlin Before Juilc Ilowland and a Jury. A Venire That Brought in a Few Prohibition istA Decree from Justice Harlan Other Points of Litigation Docket Notes. The proceedings to get John Stehlin. saloon-keeper, ont of the Second ward were begun hefore Judge Ilowland yesterday on appeal from the County Commissioners. 'Ihe latter, in face of a remonstrance signed by seven hundred or eight hundred citizens of the ward, granted Stehlin a li cense, and they nave been so mad abont it that if the Circuit Court goes against them they will take the questions involved be fore the Supreme judges. The well-known Prohibitionist. Captain Kittcr, is a citizen of the Second ward, and he and S. O. Pick ens have charge of the caee on behalf of the remonstrators. Stehlin. it is alleged, is not a fit person to sell liquor, and npon that point most of the testimony is to be ottered. There was a little trouble in procuring a jury yesterday afternoon, the opinions of some two or three on tho venire being ad Verse to anybody selling liqnor, no matter what their rights under the law might be. When George 1$. Sullivan came forward to be examined as to his fitness to serve as a juror, Stenlin's attorneys, Louis Newberger and Capt. James 15. Curtis, dropped him as if he was satan in disguise. Sullivan said it would not do to put him on the jury, as he would decide against the saloon-keeper, no matter what facts as to character might be produced. He was a Prohibitionist, and lid not think it morally or legal ly right for any. one to sell liquor. Attorney Kilter would have liked it had Sullivan not been 6oopen in ex pressing his convictions- Sylvanus Hol iingsworth. of Pike township, said it was possible for a man to have- a good moral character when he applied for a liquor license, but he could not have one if he re mained in the business. D. G. Kobmson, of Wayne township, was not so blunt in bis expressions, but he coincided with Mr. Hollingsworth, and added that hfl.was un alterably opposed to the liquor traffic. Joseph A. Brown admitted that it would not be just the thing for him to go on the jury, as ho was one of the seven hundred or eight hundred who had signed the remonstrance. After these four vrcre excused the case went to Trial with the following jurors: John Borger, John B. Sullivan, Colonel Koss. John Sargent. Asa Newhouso, John 3 wails. Win. A. Avery, G. L. Edwards, Thomas II. S. Peck. Henry Orbenson, Rich ard Arnold, J. D. Marshall. The court did not get very far into the testimony before adjournment, but what was ottered came from tho Stehlin side. The questions pertained mostly to the character of the places Stehlin hadkept be fore he went into the Second ward. His allowing card and pool-ulaying for drinks seemed to be the chief point tho prosecu tion wanted brought out. The Rank Gets the Elevator. A decree was filed in the Circuit Court yesterday by Justice Harlan, of the United States Supreme Court, sitting as a circuit Judge, in the matter of the petition of tho First National Bank of Indianapolis in the sase of John D. Probst vs. the Indianapolis, Decatur &. Springfield Railway Company. The bank claims the rent of en elevator from May 10, 1SSS. Justice Harlan orders that Sands &, Pierce, trustees in the mort gage of the I., D. fc S., surrender possession of the elevator and the land appurtenant thereto to the receiver of the court, upon the demand of said receiver, and that the receiver immediately thereafter surrender possession to the First National Bank of In dianapolis. The order is without prejudice to any right which the I., D. fc W., or trus tees in said mortgage of Dec. 31, 1875, may have in or to the elevator, or to the land appurtenant thereto. Trustees Do Not Like the Pastor. The trustees of Lovely Lane Church do not want to receive the pastor Bishop Lo- max, of the A. M. E. Church, recently sent them. Ho is Thomas J. Manson, and the doors of the church have been locked against him. The difficulty is a continu ance of that which disturbed the congrega tion last year, when the pastor of that time had trouble with a woman, a member of the church. Mr. Manson's presence, it was thought, would bring the congregation to gether again. He has brought suit in the Superior Court to compel tho trustees to re- ceivohim. Parly Settlement Kxpected. The Supreme Court yesterday ordered the street-paving case advanced on the docket, and it will be set for oral argument at an early day. The prospect of a speedy settle ment of this question, so important to the city and in which the pnblic is vitally in terested, is therefore good. Notes from the Dockets. Duano II. Bowles, Jobn J. Cotton and John Jerome were admitted to the Superior and Circuit Court bars yesterday.. Rhoda White yesterday filed a complaint against Beuj. I . and Jennie White. The plaintiff is the aged woman whose condi tion of mind was in controversy in the Cir-. cult Court some months ago. and whose guardianship gave rise to much litigation. , She is now suing to have a deed given by her to defendants set aside. A jnrv In the Criminal Court yesterday heard the testimony relative to the charge of perjury against Mrs. Vincent, white, who is accused of testifying falsely in the Mayor's court. No verdict "was returned at a late hour last night. Thero is a like chargo against Noah Moore, colored, to bo tried. It arises out of tho same case. The Kaplan damage suit against George W. Stout, before Judge Taylor, was inter rupted yesterday morning by the defend ant being taken violently sick in tho court room. A doctor was summoned, and under the application of a hypodermic injection Mr. Stout recovered snlliciently to be taken home. The case was resumed in the after noon.

Complaint that nppellant issued to plaintiff a policy of insurance covering live years; that in payment of the premium the appellee gave part cash and balance by a note. It further appears that appellant brought suit on the note and the judgment was stayed, but paid in October, The property insured was destroyed by tiro in August, 1SST. The policy provided that if the assured failed to pay the preminm note at tho time specified the policy was to b5 void during tho time it remained unpaid, and no legal action on tho part of the com pany to enforce payment should be con strued as reviving the policy. The pay ment of the premium, however, revived the policy and made it good for the balance of tlie term. Held: That the acceptance of the premium after the loss Lad occurred was a waiver of the right to declare a forfeiture of the policy .and not a mere act of revivor. The fact that all of tho property insured was not destroyed does not affect the ques tion, for the policy is indivisible and con tinuous. WXXx Midland Railway Company vs Samuel M. Smith.

Gould's Indiscreet Editing Causes II is Arrest for Criminal Libel Edwin F. Gould, whoso notoriety rests on his sponsorship of the infamons "dollar-a-day" lie of the las'; campaign, was arrested by Constable Glass yesterday afternoon for criminal libel. The affidavit which led to the arrest was sworn to by Leonidas G. Dynes, editor and publisher of the Indianapolis Gazette. The libel was committed in a paper known as the Union, issued under the nominal auspices of the Knights of Labor. and edited by Tioald. It was started shortly after tho Republican county convention on the order of the Knights of Labor. Gould says, and has now reached the sixth week of its existence. The paper is printed in the office of the Sentinel Printing Company. The oflensive language, as set forth in tho affidavit drawn up by Deputy Prosecutor Fessler, is taken from an editorial headed Rough on Rats," in which prevarication, perjury, bribery and various other infrac tions of good morals are charged airainst tho editor of the Gazette. The epithets follow a tirade against the Gazette for alleged disrespectful roferenco in its columns to the Knights of Labor celebration of Labor day; and also for not employing union labor. There were 1,800 copies of this issue of the Union printed, but the Sentinel Printing Company, on seeing the nature of the attack on Mr. Dynes, suppressed all but about two hundred copies, which had already left the office. A Journal reporter asked Gould for a statement, as he was awaiting the arrival of bondsmen in the court-room of Justice of the Peace Smock and received tho reply that he had none to make. ' Heproceedeato say, however, that he was trying to get back at the Gazetto for its statements concern ing the Knights of Labor festivities on Labor day. Gould then, turned to Mr. Fessler and manifested much more interest in ascertaining from him how much it would take to settle the case on a plea ot guilty. He said he was not guilty, but he had often seen parties ac cused of offenses in the Mayor's court plead guilty and pay a tine rather than stand trial, with ail the incidental worry and trouble. At this time disappointment bad resulted from afailuro to attract bonds men to the office by telephone, and Gould had anxiously besought the court to re duce the bond trom $500. the amount al ready fixed, Mr. Fessler declined to act as court and prosecutor, too, and referred him to the justice of the peace, with the state ment that be must first confer with Mr. Dynes's attorney, Mr. Hooker, before he could offer the court advice on the subject. Bnt shortly after a bondsman was obtained, E. M. Johnson, chief deputy in the auditor's office, becoming surety for Gould's appear ance for trial. WALSMAN'S ASSIGNMENT. Note Given to a Former Partner the Cause of the Assignors Immediate Embarrassment. Tho late Willoughby II. Reed owned a store of gentlemen's furnishing goods at No. 13North Illinois street, and somemonths .before his death sold it to Edward F. Wals man and Edward P. Roll. In course , of time tho partners had difficulties that brought about a dissolution, Walsman pur chasing Roll's interest. Mr. Reed became the indorscr of the purchaser, and affairs went aloug quietly, Mr. Walsman ap parently doing an excellent business, until ono of tho notes given to Mr. Roll, calling for $700, began to trouble him. An exten sion had been given on it, but this was about to expire, and Mrs. Reed, adminis tratrix of her late husband's estate, did not, in view of the missing Reed will, feel like assuming tho responsibility of another extension. With the will undiscovered, she could not take such a step without the consent of Mr. Reed's son, who is in the East. Mr. Walsman, therefore, decided to maku an assignment for the benefit of his creditors, Harry R. Springsteen becoming the assignee. Tho assets .involved are about $1,500, as against $4,000 liabilities. Tho latter are, with tho exception of 700, due the Reed estate, and some of that paper has not yet matured. The other creditors are furnishing goods dealers in the East, and Norton fc McFee, lawyers in this city. A chattel mortgapo for 100 in favor of tho lawyers was filed with tho papers of assignment. Another mortgage, signed on tho loth of this month, for 31.000, was alao filed, this being given to Mrs. Reed and operating as a prior lien on the property. It is to secure a noto for-S'-iW) given by Walsman to Reed, July 19, th;s year, and the indorsement on tho paper due Roll. m t Grapes Plenty but l'eache Scarce. There are plenty of grapes in tho market, bnt that fruit is about the only one that is arriving in sufficient quantities to make the price within tho reach of people of ordinary means. The sales of grapes this week by the Indianapolis commission-houses have been very large, ono firm alone having dis posed, up to last night, of 5,000 baskets. The quality is very fine, there never having been better Concords and Dela wares in this market. The former range from 4 to cents per pound and the latter from 7 to 7? cents. Reaches are very scarce, and seem likely to continue 60. The California are selling at $2 a box, and a box contains a third of a bushel. The others range from CO to 'JO cents a peck basket, ana there are few of them on hand. Moke convenient than a pill Is Simmons Liver Regulator. It is made both liquid and powder. AFFAIRS OF THE RAILWAYS. New Railroad Enterprises In Northern Indi ana The Outlook Not Encouraging. A gentleman from the northern part of tho State, who was in the city yesterday, and who has taken a good deal of interest for years in railroad matters, states that tho outlook for the three roads projected across northern Indiana is not very Mattering. One of the roads projected is known as the Wabash-Chicago line. An impression has gone out that the Wabash company is pushing the project, but an official said to the Journal's informant, this week, that the Wabash was not interested in it, and had no money 1o build a road with. The company that proposes to build the line, he added, was not overloaded with money. A second is the Toledo & Chicago Air-line. The projectors of this line have been prom ised money from three different sources, but each time the capitalists have not dono as they agreed in the matter. Goshen. Ind.. has voted a subsidy to the enterprise, but in all other townships where elections have been held the vote was against giving aid. The third is tho Lake Shoro project, and this gentleman this week received a letter from Mr. John Newell, who states that this link from Fayetto, on the old Canada Southern line, across to tho Battle Creek road, just east of Goshen, would doubtless be built. Much of the distance was graded beforo the Lako Shore purchased the Can ada Southern right of way, over which line this link will be built. The Toledo &. Chi cago Air-line people proposo to build from Toledo to Chicago; the Wabash-Chicago company from Angola, Ind., to Chicago. The E. & T. II. and the Car-Service Rules. Traffic Manager G rammer, of the Evans ville & Terre Hauto road, assigns as a rea son for the E. &. T. II. withdrawing from the Indiana Car-service Association that the Vandalia was not living up to the rules of the organization at Terre Haute. WThy the shortcomings of the Vandalia at that point should place the E. & T. Hat a dis advantage is not stated. The two roads are certainly not competitors at that point.. In this connection a statement of the bene fits that car-servico associations are to tho roads will not be amiss, as shown in a rq port compiled by E. E. Hill, secretary of the National Association of Car-service Managers. The statement shows tho opera tions of twentv-two demurrage associa tions for May, June and July of this year. It appears that 1,220,550 cars wero handled by the twenty-two associations in opera tion during the quarter, the average deten tion per car being one and ono-half day. , Statistics show the average detention of cars, before the associations went into operation, to have been over four days in the East and six to eight days in the West, Placing the general avenage at five days per car, which is no doubt a fair estimate, the different associations have reduced the general average detention CS per cent. P., C, C. & St. L. Consolidation Completed. Philadelphia, Sept. 18. The Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad Company was to-day formed by merger and consolidation of the Pittsburg, Cincin nati & St. Louis; the Chicago, St. Louis fc Pittsburg, the Jefferson ville, Madison & Indianapolis, and the Cincinnati & Rich mond. The lines heretofore operated by those companies will, on and after Oct. 1, 1800, be operated by the new organization. The following officers were elected: Geo. B. Roberts, president, office, Philadelphia; J. N. McCullough. first vice-presideDt, office at Pittsburg; James McCrea, second vice president, af Pittsburg; Thomas D. Messier, third vice-president and comptroller, at Pittsburg; John E. Davidson, treasurer, at Pittsburg; S. B. Liggett, secretary, at Pittsburg; Stephen W. White, assistant secretary, at Philadelphia; Joseph Wood, general manager, at Pittsburg; E. B. Tay lor, general superintendent of transporta tion, at Pittsburg; John F. Miller, general superintendent, at Columbus, O. U" Personal, Local and General Notes. II. C. Diehl, general manager of the In terstate Dispatch, was in the city yester day. The death of Dr. D. J. Holland, of Atchi son, makes vacant the position of assistant chief surgeon on tho Missouri Pacific, sys tem. A Cleveland paper revives the report that Chairman Goddard, of the Western Passen ger Association, will, on Oct. 1, become general manager of the Lake Shoro road. Complaint is made that tho Wabash is neglecting its local traffic to look after its through business. Possibly this accounts for the decrease in earnings shown from week to week of late. Anew position was created on the Big Four yesterday, that of general foreman of shop braidings and repairs on tho whole system. G. W. Markly, of Peoria, was ap pointed to the position. ' C. B. Couch has been appointed purchas ing agent of the Lako Shore road, vice L. C. Higgins, deceased. Mr. Couch, until his health failed, some months ago, was super intendent of the eastern division of tho Lake Shore road. The August bulletin of the Voluntary Re lief Department of tho Pennsylvania lines west of. Pittsburg, shows that 810,750 was disbursed in death benefits during. the month, and' $10,742.15 in disablement bene fits; total disbursements. $21,492.15. Since the results of the harvest excur sions of Sept. 9 have been footed up they aro highly satisfactory, nearly every road carrying more peoplo than on any harvest excursion in former years. The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy got SlOO.000 out of tho business. W. W. Watson, chief train-dispatcher of tho Grand Rapids & Indiana railroad, was discharged yerday. No reason was given for the sudden dismissal. Mr. Wat son has held tho position for many years, and is highly respected in Fort Wayne, where his headquarters were. It is stated that tho transfer of the Cin cinnati. Saginaw & Mackinac road to the Grand Trunk has been completed, and it is the intention of the Grand Trunk people to extend tho road to Mackinac in 1801. Tho road now operated extends from Durand north to bagiuaw and Bay City. The Lake Erie & Western road paid to Grant Hall, an employe who lost a leg in a coll ision last fall, $3,000. and has civen him the position of flagman on one ot the streets the road crosses at Lafayette. The colli sion was caused through the carelessness of tho company's train dispatcher. ThoPittsbnrg, Fort Wayno & Chicatro: tho Chicago, St Louis &. Pittsburg; the Erie, the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, the Baltimore fc Ohio, and the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago, aro still usini? the new- uniform bill of lading, and all the trunk lines use it on shipments of freight West. Since Sept. 1, when the order to cut down txpenses on the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg went into effect, 700 men have been dropped from the pay-rolls, and the shors are running but nine hours. Still, the business of tho road is now tho heaviest in its history, and largely local, which pays weiL Albert S. White, of St. Louis, assistant general freight agent of the Big Four lines. was in tne city yesterday. He reports uusuicsB ou me .uouis uivision as ex cellent, but complains of an inability to secure cars to move the traffic oll'ercd. He says the new cotton will begin to movo Last briskly about Oct. 1. John Sloan, roadraaster of the Peoria di vision of the Big Four, has returned from the annual meeting and reports the attend anca to have been large and tho sessions very interesting. Many matters of iinnor tance were discussed, and much valuable information given. The next meeting will be held in -Minneapolis in September, 1601. The announcement is made of the sale of the Milwaukee & Northern road to the Chicago, Milwaukeo , St, Paul company, which will take possession on Oct, 1. The stock amouuts to SC.000.000, and is worth not far from 100 cents ou the dollar. The actual amount of cash involved in the transaction is a little in excess of $5,000,000. On Wednesday night there were nearly seven hundred car-loads of freight on the Louisville, New Albany &. Chicago road to be moved which came under the head of local business. Superintendent Ewan hopes, by tho throwing of their through business over the Indianapolis division and the J., M. iV I. road, that beforo the week ends tho delayed freights will be well cleared up. The passenger department of tho Big Four is credited with publishing the lurgest and most complete passenger rate sheet yet is sued by any road. Rates to nil points in I the States and Territories! East and West, 2 I North and South, are given, and so ar ranged that it is but a moment's trouble to name a rate to tho most distant point in the United States. When Assistant General Manager Bar nard, of tho Big Four, made the contract for the heavy ten-wheel passenger engines which the company has received in the last ninety diys, the Brooks Locomotive-works Company contracted that theso engines should haul ten cars, five of . them Wagner sleeping-cars, from Cincinnati to Indianap olis in three hours, stopping once for water. Several of the engines have already dono this without any extra effort, seemingly, and the engineers are of opinion that they will haul twelve cars and make that time. The traffic over the Peoria fc Pekin road is now the heaviest in its history, but M. ('onners, the new superintendent, form erly with tho C, H. & I., is handling it in a manner which surprises tho manage ments of the roads that haul their business into and out of Peoria over it. Heretofore, when business was heavy, blockades have been tho rule; now everything moves like clock work, and delayed business is un known. Jerome Fry. a freight conductor, has been promoted to fill the place of Harvey Rrokaw on the Pennsylvania line, who was discharged last week. Harvey had been run ning between Richmond and Fort Wayno for twenty years. A belief prevails with the older passeng'er conductors on the Penn sylvania lines west of Pittsburg that they are all to be dismissed in tho near future, and many of them are quietly looking about to en cace m business which will be of a more permanent character than is rail roading at the present day. D. B. Martin, general passenger agent of the Big Four, was in the city yesterday. and arranced for the changes in the ticket offices at this point which will take otiect Oct. 1. On that dato Maj. George Butler will retire as city ticket agent at tho South Illinois-strejut office, and will be succeeded by DeWitt C. Drake, of tho up-town offic.e; Samuel Hice, chief clerk of H. M. Bronson, assistant coneral passonger agent, will take Mr. Drake's position in tho tip-town office. The arrangement now is that As sistant General Passenger Agent Bronson shall remove his office from the Ingalls Block to the company's otlico, at the corner of Washington and Meridian streets. The Chicago Herald says that tho South western Railway and Steamship Association is now being organized, and J. F. Goddard is to become its chairman, with headquarters probably at Chicago. The association will bo formed of all lines from St. Louis and Kansas City to the Southwest. This 1 will cover the Missouri Pacific system. Southern Pacific lines in Texas and Louisiana, the Atchison properties in the Southwest and a number of smaller roads. The new associa tion is a pet scheme of Jay Gould, CP. Huntington and Allen Manvel, of the At chison system, and the determination to form tho association and make Mr. Goddard chairman was reached during one of Presi dent Manvel's recent visits to New York. The dissatisfied stockholders of the Illi nois Central railroad held a meeting at Hartford, Conn., yesterday. A special committee consisting of Francis B. Cooley. ex-president of the Exchange National Bank; James G. Batetrson. president of the Iravelers Insurance Company, and James N. Nichols, president of the National Fire Insurance Company, was appointed to represent the Hartford stockholders and any others who will send their proxies to them. The purpose of the committee is to oppose an increase of capital, and secure home management and economy in conduct ing the road, and oppose costly extensions. They voted to prepare suitable proxies and leave them with the Hartford Board of Trade to be given toall stockholders who may send for them. As to Ture Milk. To the Editor ot the Indianapolis Journal: The Journal has a reported conversation with Dr. Brayton upon milk, in which he says: "I think Indianapolis has an abund ance of the best milk in the world. The great interest taken in this matter by the Hoard of Health and sanitary committees," etc. I wish simply to inquire if the best milk in the world is produced from such food as starch-factory and brewery slops! Such is tho food given to a large number of dairy cows whoso milk is daily sold to the people of the city. The late Dr. R, T. Brown called attention to this fact in a short article in a city paper not many months beforo his death. He referred to the use of such slops as a direct violation of law, and, I think, called the attention of tho Board of Health to these facts; but whether he did or not, what is that board doing about it! The unpleasant odor of starch slops is found in the milk, cream and butter made from them. The milk will sour twelve hours sooner than that produced from mill feed, both sitting in ice-water together. The cream is not only disagreeable in smell and taste, but frothy, and nothing better than third-class butter can be made from-it. Such are the facts about much of the milk sold in the city, of which Dr. Brayton says: "Probably no city of its size on earth is surrounded with such excellent conditions for tho production of good milk." A. S. Kingsley. Indianapolis, Sept.

It is very gratifying to have so strong an approval of these great questions of Republican policy. 'Dirigo'7 is the motto of 'Maine.
