In a meeting of the city * sinking fund commission, Tuesday morning, it was decided to have $209,000 of bonds purchased by the paving, in terest and sinking fund, with the pro vision that the mayor, controller aud treasurer are to be allowed to sell these bonds at par to anyone who may desire to purchase them. Os the $41,000 of bonds sold to out side purchasers, only $250 of premium waß received, so that par was set as a fair price. The plan of the adminis tration to keep the city’s credit up Is thus achieved and it is believed that possibility of a successful in junction in thtf interest of bond buy ers is forestalled. The bonds are in denominations of SI,OOO. KEEPWSIME in the preamble (From a Special Correspondent.) LANSING. Mich., Jan. 14.—The con con today agreed to several proposals, in committee of the whole.

What tho police regard as a serious defect In the juvenile law was re vealed Tuesday, in the trial of three boys on the charge of simple larceny in the police court. The boys, who are Benjamin Demink, aged 17, No. H 75 St. Aubln-ave.; Julius Mesaer smidt, aged 16, of No. 126 Preston-sL, and Elias Ofnitzski, aged 17, ot No. 971 McDougail-ave., were really guilty of breaking and entering, under the evidence, but Justice Jeffries, because of their youth, declined to issue war rants on such a serious charge, so they were accused of simple larceny. August Ofnitzski, No. 971 McDougall avc., father of one of the defendants, was the victim of the ..jobbery.. The boys secured $44. lil tile trial before Justice StcLu. Tuesday morning, it developed that the Messersmldt boy lacks just one month of being 17 years old. Under the juvenile act the police justice had no right to try him and the lad was, of necessity, discharged, although, ac cording to Precinct Detectives Red mond and Repp, he was the ringleader of the gang and put up the job. The only thing left for the authorities Is to prosecute him under the Juvenile act in the probate court, but even then he cannot be punished by im prisonment, for the state reform school does not admit boys between the ages of 16 and 17 years, as they cannot be detained after the age of 17. “A boy between those ages could steal half o the town and we couldn't do a thing to him,” commented Detec tive Redmond. “The law' is sadly deficient when It comes to dealing with boys who are Jußt past 16, and something ought to be done to remedy it. But for the Influence of the Messer smidt boy this robbery might not have occurred, yet he goes scott free while the other boys are punished severely.” Both Demink and Ofnitzski were found guilty by the court and each was sentenced to 90 days In the house of correction, without the alternative of a fine.

Flip-slammed Torn Flim-flammers, and Woman Is Sufferer Justice Jeffries Issued a warrant, Tuesday, for John Wartowski, arrest ed Monday on suspicion of having de frauded scores of workingmen out of $2 by promising them Jobs in northern Ontario. He Is charged with obtain ing $2 from Gregory Wynyllowskl, of No. 316 Buchanan m, on false pre tenses. He has been under arrest in the Chene-st. station, pending the swearing out of a warrant. It now transpires that Wartowski and his partner, who Is still at largo, operated on both the east and west sides of the city and their victims number about 200 men. The tables were turned, however, when, after the discovery of the fraud, a cousin of Wartowski, who had been placed in charge of the little office he opened at No. 729 Kirby ave. east, made an honest effort to refund money still in her possession. As soon as the young woman learn ed of Wartowakl’s arrest she at once sent out word to all of those who bad put up $2 for a Job that did not. exist, to come In and get their money back. Home of them came back a second and even a third time and tho honest young woman, In her excitement, did not notice this duplication. Thus the alleged fllm-flammer was film slam med. at the expense, however, of the young woman, who seems to have been an Innocent party to the little scheme.

But Mr. IJttleton will contend that Thaw's insanity was not of a perman ent nature—that It only required some great shock to restore him to his proper senses—and that ehoclc, came, when, after montha of brood ing over the wrongs, real or fancied, suffered by Evelyn Nesbit Thaw at the hands of Stanford White, the story was told to him In, Paris.
