aud two mott shots sounded on the ears of the by?
standers^ As they ontert-d tho body of Dukes, be i
fell heavily to tbe door upon his face.
loan instant E.A. Liugo lushed Into thi-office
and stooped down to nick him up. Dukes tried to
say something, but could ouly ga-p and in a moment
he was dead. By this time Officer Pegg reached
yoong Nutt and laid bis baud upon bis arm. The

Thc State Railroad Commissioners resumed
the bearing yesterday In regard to tho extortionate
rates which lt ls alleged the New.York Central and tbe
Ilarlnii roatls charge tn their milk trnffle,
On behalf of tbo railroad*, n. J. I? Hyden
*u|ynitted a statement of tbo operations of tbe Harlem
road last year, showing a loss to ths New-York Ce;itral,
the lessee, of $464,596. nc said thnt with all the efforts
made to develop business the net earnings of the road,
after paying Interest on tbe bonds, were equal to only
3'_ per cent on the $_*,4..0,000 stock. Tbe tonnage was
light, and moro than one-half of lt was feed
and coal, moved at low rates In the Interest
of the dairymen, and lee and ore, moved
at low rates over short distances. The passenger
rates averaged lower than any other railroad
tn thc country, erc_pt the New-York Central. It was
practically carried at a loss. Tho milk trafflo gave 36
per cent of tbe freight earning*, and 24 lier cent of the
total transportation earnings. Mr. Hayden denied that
the mils rates were unreasonable, on account of tho
special character of the service rendered. They wero
tbe result of a reduction of 'iii per cent on
tim rates In force for years before 1879, which
had In no way brough', compensation by increase of
revenue or even of slrpiu nts, hut hal boen followed by
a lo*-in both. If the price ot tntlk was not controlled
In New-York, but wiws kept down by competition, tho
benefit of a rc liit-tlou In rates would go to the eon .inner
Who h id uot complained. If MM peta was controlled In
New-York, lt should ho Increased nd that the Harlem
coubl charge ouougii to earn a rovi-nu i of 9 per cent on
Its stock, which was ouly alair return ou capital Invested.
Under cross-examination Mr. Hayden adiui'.ted thai
be bal not Included in his estimates the 2 per cent
earneil on tho Harlem stock by the street car lino.
Kurt her testimony was taken without developing uuy
new facts ot Import* nee. Chairman Kerami said that
oue of the Commissioner* would make a personal In?
spection of tho methods of doing the milk business on
the Harlem rossi.

io the care of' a physician by Ju dip Wylie,
After repc.it/--i doses of brandy no waa
pronounced " all right " by the physician xml toole
bis seat with the other jurors. Vernon, if bo is a
liquor dealer, i i a heavy drinker and one* siuce tn*
ti lal began J mini Wylie was obliged to give him a
sharp admonition on that account. H.. promieeu tu
restrain his appetite, but within a week il bas beee
iipjmretit thal lie was nguiu drinking bea- lly.
irom the tenor of Judge Wylie's retaarkl aft*
the scene of this rn ruing it was evident that he
felt sorao doubt as to whether Vernon's condition
ivuji such that bc, could be trusted to perform bia
duties ae a iuior intelligently. .*-.?. .*, al lawyers in
coalmen ti og od tho affair afterward, in tb:- light ot
what the Court had saitl, expressed the .-pinion that
in the event of a verdict cf guilty, the defence
might be able to bave it set aside on the ground of
the temporary incompetency of oue of thc jurors.
Tbo g.'iieral opinion, however, appeared io be that
if Vernon is not wli.illy deprived of stimulants be
will be able to perform his duties.
Various inferences respectiug the probal.ilitv ot
a verdict ate drawn from the expre-sions ot tore
man tu Crane courtto-day. The defendants fa jd tacir
friends profess to derive much comfort from tbat
source, while on tbe other hand, tbe eoansel for the
Government appear to think tbat what waa aaid
possc-seu little t-ignilicaucc. Some of the friends of
tbe defendants predict with much s- eming confi?
dence a verdict ot acquit ia!, but it is qiiiteiiotioe
able that the men who are personally tbe most
deeply interested show less confidence than they
did under like circumstances at the Iirst trial. The
statement that Mr. tireen, one of the jurors.waa seen
engaged iu irieudly conversation withOeueral Brady
ai ihe Astor House, New-York, four or rive daya
iiiu, has excited some unlavorable comment, but
the Uoveruuieiit conns.;!, while they say the sta te?
rn,-ul in true, appear to attach slight importance to
tba teeta Tbegsnerai opinion in Washington ap?
pears to bo that the case will end lu a disagreement
of tho jury.
Washington, June 13.? Mre. S. W. Dorsey
and ner sister, Mrs. Peck, were among thc persons pre*
ciBln tbe Criminal Coart ibis minite*. Sl-ortly after
IO o'clock JU'lfrc Wylie directed Hie Court crier to go tu
tina Mar Boats fury aud ask if a ver,Hot bad been aureed
upon. Mr. liliss staled to thc Court tbat Juror Vernon
tm! beeu unwell tu tbe night. Judge Wy lie instructed
tlie proper titllcer* to i5?re for Mr. Vernon. Tne crier
soon returned act Infertile 1 tlie Conn thu the Jury was
not reatly to iBf-OH One of tho Jurors, however, wished
to come Iuto court. Judge Wylie thercipoa scut word
to thc Jury tbat If any one of tbem desired Instructions
upon points ot law, be wss entitled to it,
and that tbe ..rr would be permitted
to como Into court for that purpose
Tte tees-age was delivered and tbe crier answered tbat
ibe Juror tu question believed tbat his difficulty arose
fn tu a question of law, but tbat the foro*nau regarded lt
BS a question of fact- Judge Wylie thou sent for the
Jury men, ami In a few minutes tbey ernie Imo court.
Before the foreman bud reacb-td tbe seat Juror Vernon,
wbo presented a wild and disordered appearance, uttered
several convulsive shouts, sprang Into tb.; air and fell
up-ni tb.- floor in a fit. A scene of eoe fn Bon followed.
Counsel hurried to tbe c-islstanoc of Vernon, who had
struck his head heavily against a chair In fulling, and it
was some time before order was restored. JuJ-re Wylie
ordered ibo othei- Jurors to retire, aud placed Vernon
uii'lcr tie care of Ur. aSowers, who happened to be pre*
eut. Judge Wylie refused Slr. Davi-ige'-t r-quest for
0 recces until the result of tbe accident could be 1- sru-sd.
In about tit (ecu miiiutea a deputy mat -I.ni reported tbat
Vernon was -stttlnifup and would soon ht ali right.
Judge Wylie said: "I Lave a -rood deal of doubt lu my
