This Powerful Writ Gains a Victory
Over an Inflexible Prospeo
r tive Mother-in-Law.
On Poydrasstreet, between St. Charles and
I Camp, there have lived in peace for a long
time Mrs. K. Hyams, her daughter Addle,
Mr. Aaron Woolf and Mr. Edmunds, a gentle
2 man on the very shady side of forty. There
came a time, however, when Edmunds whis
i perel vows of tender love in the ears of the
fond Addle; and he knew by her sighs sad
her down east eyes that she was his and his
alone. So far, so good, as regards the two
lovers. But Mrs. Hyams objected to the
union of her daughter, a Jewess, with
an alien to her faith. Then trouble visited
the house; the fair Addle was kept in durance
by,the inflexible mother and Edmunds forbid
den to come within pistol-range of the house.
SThe lover, however, not to be frustrated by
9 motherly wiles, knowing that Addle was of
age, sued out a writ of habeas corpus before
Judge Whitaker, Thursday night, alleging
Sthat Addle Hyams was illegally and forcibly
detained by her mother. All parties werebe
Sfore the court immediately, but, owing to
some delay in securing a lawyer for the
defense, the court continued the matter until
10 o'clock Friday. At the appointed hour the
case was called, and it was announced that
Mrs. Hyams had withdrawn her objection.
In the twinkling of an eye the triumphant
'Edmunds and the fair Adldle adjourned to
Judge Whitaker's office, where his Honor im
preseively performed the marriage ceremony.
ouch is the ending of a tale of true love,
wherein the mother-in-law was bulldozed by
and yielded before the terribly suggestive
writ of habeas corpus.

A Habeas Corpus Case Which Has
Gone to the Highest Tribunal
For some time past Mr. Hugo O. Voa Ulrich
and his wife have been living in decided un
happiness; so much so that they had fre
quently caused themselves, respectively, to be
brought before the First Beoorder's Court on
petty charges. This unhappiness was further
Increaseed by a suit for divorce in the courts
and a separation in the meantime. Wednes
day night Von Ulrich went to his wife's house,
and she subsequently caused his arrest for
breaking and entering in the night, armed
with a eadly weapon,wth Intent to commit a
felony. On thls charge Von Ulrich was in
carcerated, and the oase not having come to
trial yesterday counsel fer the defendant ap
plied to the Flfth District Court for a writ of
habeae aorpse.
The petition for the writ stated that the
offense was a bailable one; that he was pre
pared to furnish ball but the privilege was
refused him. Judge Bgers granted the writ
ordeming his release on a bond of $8000, condi
tioned on his appearance before the First
Munlclpal Police Court.
When this writ had been served Recorder
Sheehan. presiding in the police court, filed a
petition in the Supreme Court alleging that
the jurisdiction of his tribunal had been in
vaded by Judge Rogers; that until a prelimi
nary examination had been held it was Im
possible to determine whether the accused
could be admitted to bail or what the amount
of the bond should be, and that as no appeal
could lie from the order of Judge Rogers, a
writ of certiorari to bring up the record of
the Fifth District Court and to restrain the
Judge of that court from proceeding further
in the matter were necessary.
Chief Justice Manning ordered the writs to
issue provisionally, returnable today at 12
The Midgets.
The wonderful Midgets, Gen. Mite and
r Major Atom, were visited yesterday by hun
t dreds of persons, and the little fellows had
= quite a busy time of It entertaining their
guests. This they do with no little grace and
in the happiest manner Imaginable, and an
hour or two can be passed most enjoyably in
their presence.
SNo words can convey an idea of the size of
i the loung gentlemen, and one has to see
f them to fully appreciate what mites, and,
small mites, they are. They are well formed
and intelligent, and manage to hold their own
t in a conversation as well as a person twenty
times as big as they are and half again as
I old.
r They receive from 10 a. m. to 12 m., and
I from 2 to 4, and7 to 9 p. m.
There are left but two chances to those of
the theatre-goers who have not yet seen it to
witness the very enjoyable entertainment
presented by Mr. B. Macauley and his dra

The performance of Romeo and Juliet last
evening was such an improvement on the

to do ustice to the performers. Miss Neilson

accomplishment in the powerful parts
of the tragedy which, notwithstand

already expressed in unmeasured terms, we
had almost dared to doubt. After istening
to her last evening in the interview with

A Boy Outs Another With a Bowie

Capt. Thos. O'Nell, commanding the Filth
Precinct, made an affidavit before Judge
Miltenberger yesterday, charging Christie
Clayton, flfteen years old, with murder by
cutting and wounding Geo. Bay (colored) and

Last week the boy complained of pains,which
