There Is no reason to supposo that thoSIxty

that now companies will hu recrultod, nnd that
It may attain tioeume a reirlmont. There -a III

the commanders of theso companies aro or

charges. These officers are by this order al
ready on the supornurnnrary list 'J hat rue a m
that thoy have no active interest In the .Na

Lieut-Cot. Moran was both shockod nnd hurt
by this action on tlio part of Ailjt-Uen. i'ortur,
for he felt that tho command of tho roirlnient
was right lu his grasp. It was no secret, tunc
before CoL Cavanngh was broottod liuoeral
and mado his preparations to reslan, that
l.leut.-CoL Moran was Impatient for tho step.
Ho felt reasonably euro of helni tho successor.
Major Duffy was lilt rival for tills distinction,
and aen.CaAnnaeh'a old friends supported him.
Thus tho old Moran-Lav-.ua.Ih feud, though
It was novor openly avowed, became a Moran
JutTy feud, and tho feellnir was even stroncer.
" It 1 had known that this was going to ban-
fien," said CoL Moran to Tin: .Sun reporter of
or reading the order, "I could hae prevented
It However, I havo no Intention of criticising

Major Duffy was diplomatically silent about
what he Intended to Uo. Ho said that this ac
tion was undoubtedly the Lest thine that could
(be dono under the circumstances.
There have been factions In the regiment
fighting each other and greatly Injuring the
Blxty-nlnth," said he, I think now that new
companies will be rocrulted with tho undesir

Col. Moran. Ho told an interesting story,
however, about a foxy boy who concluded to

years as a sharpshooter.
After Lleut.-CoL Moran had satisfied him
self that the order disbanding the blxty-nlnth
was olllclal, and that tho roglmont va no
longer in existence, ho told tho Captains who
Were In tho armory about It. Col. Mornu's
friends and the officers of the companies dis
banded were full of wrnth. Cnpt Hugh Cole
man of i; Compnny. who had been severely
r dated by Inspector-General Mctirath in his
sst report, sent nut notlcos to bis company
yesterday before tho order disbanding It was
received ordering It to report for an exhibi
tion drill at tho armory on Deo. 11. Capt
Coleman wanted to "show the publlo " that
the Inipoctor-Oenoral had made a mistake.
Capt Coleman and about twenty of his men
wore In their comp.my room last night whon
they learned that they couldn't hold their ex.
hit itton drill. " Thl action," said Cant Cole
man, who is a Jiepubllcan lav.ror. 'means
death to the Domocratio tarty. That U what
it means, and I am sorry for it."
' hat are you going to do about It" asked
Trix Hun reporter.
' Well, I am going to tnke my sword and
uniform away from the nrmorr."
Capt. Coleman s.tld that he might try to re
organize his company again. In tlie hoco of
having It musterod in.
W hen It was learned in O Company's room
that by the order of the Adiutant-Uenernl this
company had born disbanded, one of the men

loik Interviewers lleportors never experi
ence tho koen cratlflcfttlon of getting either
ot theio well-known men to tell thom things
which they should not tell them, or make ad
missions which suggest sonsttlonal stories of
any character, lloth are deliberate and care
ful, and strictly Impartial In giving out the
news which Is constantly sought from thom.
A man In the position of Buporlnto.ndc.nt
llyrnes could easily manage to give all
of his Important bits of Information to
one newspaper ahead of the othors, and
thus bo of Inostlraabls value to the paper
In question. In a llko way Mr. (lould oould
exhibit a preforonce or personal snlto. Neither
man oan bo Interviewed hurrlodly, but when
either of thom has nnythlngto say he appoints
n tlmo for tolling the story, nnd gives It con
cisely nnd fully up to a certain point. I)eond
that point the most patient prodding of n skil
ful questioner Is fruitiest Tho Oould family
lias I oen prominent In the papers for several
weeks. In one way or nnothor, but all tho In
formation comes directly from or through the
present head of tho family, and hots undis
turbed by the various phases of notoriety
through which ho passes.
Tho sloppy streots recall to old Now Yorkers
what was once the normal condition of this
city bolwcon Ncptembor and May. It Is only
In recent years that tho publlo hao learned
that this peculiar and aggravating condition
of things Is not tho fault of the climate but of
the pavements. Asphalt pavements mean dry
streets, just as certainly as tho old cobble
stone and Belgian pavements meant a dura
tion of slush and mud. An object lesson was
furnished In tho tip-town district yestorday,
on tho cross strooU running east and west
from Tilth avenuo. At 5 o'clock In the after
noon the stroets which are paved with asphalt
wore almost elearof thu slush, and In many
places, whero tho sun hnd touched thom, they
wore dry, and therowero no ovldencesot tho
storm: while In tho stone-paved streets, such
as Madison. I'lllh, nnd Klxth avenues. Hie slush
and dirt were ankle deep from ond to end.
A small group of socloty men may be seen
every afternoon In Dolmonlco's nt about half
past 1. There Is n sort of exchange of in
formation In small talk, and tho nutnbor of
mombers Increasos or diminishes according
to tho condition of excitement w hloh exists In
social circles over a pending marriage, a cur
ront society scandal, a plgoon-shooting match,
or some similar event. Homo of the men

consisting of members of tho Cutting,
llelmont, andorbilt, Rutherford, Mcen,
nnd Kelly families. Occasionally nn aspiring
social strugglor sails rapidly and enthusias
tically up to the regulars, but ho seldom gets
n chair. There seetnx to bo ft freomnsonry of
the "Ins" against the. "outs." Tho state
ment which nppeared Inn Sunday paper that

The tranquillity of Maurlco Grnu Is said to
be tho most firmly established and Invulnora
bio featuro of the Metropolitan Opera House
soason. Mr. Orau Is a man of sturdy physlquo
and easy rarrlnge, and ho usually wears n
rotroM'oetlvo and plearnnt expression of coun
tenance. It Is necessary for him to see literally
score" of people every day, each of whom wants
something from Abboy .t Grau. and very few of
whom got tho concessions thoy ask for. Tho
vagaries and sudden thoughts to which tho
sopranos, contraltos, tenors, nnd bassos of
the big opera company are subject aro Indo
scrlbably numerous Whonovor a singer gets an
idea It Involves something In the way of a spo
rial arrangement with the manngor. It Is
then necosnry to see Maurlco llrau. 'J his
necessity often arises three or four times a
dnr In the case of n single singer. .Mr. llrau
listens calmly and dispassionately, and deliv
ers his reply In a manner that always creates
the Impression, In some wny, that he coincides
thoroughly with Ids questioner. An a matter
of fact, the result Is usually theopposltoof this.
On Wednesday afternoon tho oerformanoo of
America" had just finished, nnd there were
six hundred people and a numbor of horses In
wild confusion on the stage of the Metro-
olltan Opera House. Descending upon this
orce with tho ontlre operatio company,
he started In on a rapid rehearsal of " Ham
lnt," which was to be porformed that night
Tho stage hands were making havoo of the
scenery and the stugo managers wero strug
gling for supremacy whon Mr. Orau walked
upon the stage. He was addressed in five dif
ferent languages from a dozen artists at once,
and he answered each one In his own lan
guage and wandered about, the only tranquil
llgure In the seething mass of people. An
audience would bo Immensely entertained al
most any tlrao at tho si ene which follows the
full of the ourtaln on a matinee at tho Metro
politan Opera House.
The discussion over the Bchaffors Is an ani
mated one on both sides, and Mr. Gerry's ac
tivity In the matter Is aa pronounced as It was
In the case of little Josef Hofmnnn. The his
tory of tho fight between (lerry and Abboy
over this boy Is extraordinary In tho extromo.
Mr. Gerry insisted that the boy pianist should
not be nllowod to play In publlo becauso It
would Injure his honlth. Mr. Abbey summoned
the very best physicians In Araorlcs. and
the tostlmony was universal that the boy did
not suffer In any way from his publlo per
formances but that tho stimulus of tho ap
plause and admiration was bonellclul to him.
Tho boy was practically froed by this testi
mony, and he clapped his hands and ran
delightedly toward Mr. Abboy. At thU
point Mr. Gorry. seeing that ho was boaten,
took a statement out of his pocket
and placed it before the Mayor, and demanded
his consideration of It This statement was a
pledge that Mr. Gerry and his friends would
pay 7S,UUtt to tho boy's fattier If he would
tako theliul away from Mr Abboyand not per
mit htm to perform in public 'I ho Abt.oy
forces ueroni-toiinde I, as thoy supposed that
only the broad principle of the legnl aspect of
Ihe case was under consideration Mr. iierry
was vehement and per-dstent. Ho took the
boy s father aaldo ami whispered to the Mayor,
and finally by paving over tho extraordinary
sum ottlw.uui) lie Induced the boy's father to
cancel tho Abbey contract and tako his son
back to school In Germany, it wus tho judg.
mont of dramatic manxgersat that time that
young Hofmann would havo made more than a
quarter of a million of dollars It he had car
ried out his contract with Mr. Abbey. He wept
continually, and became gloomy and unhappy
when he found that ho would have to give up
his public playing hero
The sequel of this extraordinary conduct
of the l'rc-sident n tho Society fur the
I'roventlon of Cruelty to Children, was wit
nessed a low weeks ago by a woll-known
New Vorkor who was vUltlng Itublnsteln In
Germany. Ono night It was announced that
young Josef Hofmann would coma in and play
for the guests after dinner. About 0 o'clock
lie slouched awkwardly Into the room. Instead
of the bright graceful, and magnetic- boy
pianist whom he had seen In America, tho
New Yorker was astonished to see a talL
lumbering, round-shouldered boy. whose face
had become surly through brooding and III
temper, and whoo manners were In striking
contrast tu thoso of Joef Hofmann when ho
was hero. 111 hair was cut in straight lines
at the back of hu bead, after the fashion
of German peasants, and after he had played
there was a moment of silence which spoke
convinc ngly and plainly of failure. Itubln

and failure nero duo to hU having been forced

The soft-coal smoke from the New York
Rtcam Company's chlmnoy Is still overcasting
the sky In the neighborhood of Cortlandt and
Washington stroots and depositing a layer of
Chicago atmosphoro over the southern por
tion of the city. Hut there is hope ahead, a
brighter outlook. In fact, for If tho steam com
pany officials continue to feel the prick of con
science which they already confess, they will
not much longor darken the fair, bright sky
of Manhattan and endanger the moral stabil
ity of those who are now Inventing new oaths
to hurl at them. They said yesterday that
they bad already begun tho work of reforma
tion. They are now installing a plant, exper
imentally, whereby they expect to consume
all the smoke nnd noxious gases their fur
nuces produce from soft coal.
Tho Ihbt trial will be that of an underfeed
mechanical stoker, ond If that does not suo
cetdanothoridto be tried, anu then.lt neces
sary, a think The lint plant to be extort
raonted with forces tho coal Into the furnace
from underneath, the lire being on top and
the raw" coal nt the bottom, reversing the
usual onter. This, It Is expected, will con
sume the gas nnd smoke as thoy pass through
the live coals toward the stuck. Another plan
is to lorco tho draught through th lire from
above instead of from below. This effort
shows that the vigorous protest of the
neighborhood has had Its proper offect and
that the company realizes that In some man
ner It must abate the nuixanco it lias created.
If all theso mechanical contrivances full of
their purpose, the company will, presumably,
recognize what practically every other fuel
consumer in the city recognizes, tlio right of
Now tnrk to remain u bright, clean. Bootless
city Is ono which must be respected.
In thu mean tlmo the moral thermometer.!
falling rapidly In the lower end of the city,
'ihe post has an annoyed and angered the
Leople iiiomI afflicted that they havo ceased
olng proper subjects fr Interviews. The
attention of the City Missionary huvlety should
be called to this matter at once. Dally noon
praver meetings, with vigorous exhortations,
should be established In the afflicted neigh
borhood as uu offset to tho demoiallzatlon
caused by that baneful, noxious, gloomy cloud
which Is still produced by the steam coiupa
n's big chlmnev.
1'resldent Wilson of tho Health Hoard said
yesterday that thorough scientific Investlga

authorities to determine wherein and In what
degree the fumes of bolt coal aro detrimental
to health. W hen this Is established in a vhans

Two affidavits were read In tho morning,
both reflecting upon McKnno's veracity. Ho
had sworn that Judge llnruard's Injunction
was not sorvod upon him, nnd that he hadn't

had told him how Col. llacon hud tried to

paper. Then an affidavit by a man named
Ford. Dennett was road, which corroborated
Mr. Mchaiin, who tat bestilo his counsel

when thoso nllldavits were read, but did not
move a muscle of his fnce. Dennett, In his
affidavit, also sworo that McKano had soon

Could bo sorvod upon him. Mr. bhepnrd then
ro.vd n short affidavit from W. J (iaynor. In
which ho said that ho had not personally cm-

election day. bhcrlfl-eloct W llllam J, lluttllng
then sworo Hint ho hnd Issued rratchors' cor
tlllcates to tho mon who went to Graiesond.
A lot of affidavits wero read, clem lug those
of Ormsby and Ilcnnott. nnd thon othors wero
read denying affidavits that had beon handed
In Inst week. With theexcoptlon of OrniBby's
nffldavit, howovor, nothing now was developed
that had any Important bearing upon the case.
Toward noon Lawyer Troy began to address
Justlco Uarnard In behalf of McKane.
It would bo somewhat of a fruitless task,"
ho began, "to undertake to review at length
the affidavits which havo been introduced
with regard to tho quostlon at bar. Whon we
remember your Honor's great exporlenco on
the bench and quick concoptlon of the faots
which havo been brought out, such a pro
cedure would be perfectly useless.
"Ihero ure some facts, however, which It
will be necessary for me tu take up. Sour
Honor will remember that In the opening of
the affidavits I suggested that, while there
aro certain legal objections to this proceed
ing, wo thought that, slnco tho charge hnd
been mado hero that an order of your Honor
had beon disrespectfully treated, we would
not present those objections until tho facts
wore before jour Honor. 1 would net. nnd I
do not bolleve uny member of the bar of this
district would undertake to defend any man
that hail treated any piece of paper bearing
your Honor's namo with disrespect, ovou
though It did not come within thu limitations
of the statute. I will now goon with tho ob
jections 1 spoke of.
"Our first proposition Is that an order of In
junction, which is void and of no offect. Issued
In an action of which tho court has no jurisdic
tion, catinot bo tho subjoct of criminal con
tempt. In this capo the court had no jurisdic
tion. I know It Is an ungracious thing to
nrguo to a Judge that ho has ssii..J an order
In a tantter lu which the court had no jurisdic
tion. In thl district, with Its millions of peo
ple, the buslnos-i of the courts Piles up so
rapidly that It would be n physical Impossi
bility for any Judge to read and etimlno all
the papers that are presented to him. Tho
roputatlon of respectable attorneis counts for
something with tho court, and whon papers
are presented by attornoys of that desorlntlon
they aro usually signed.
' Ono of the reasons why your nonor had no
jurisdiction in this case Is that the injunction
wnB aptdied for on Nov. t), to restrain tho de
fendants from Interfering with thewntchors
appointed by tho liopubllcan commltteo to
watch tho polls on Nov, 7. The court was
asked on Nov, II to reudor a judgment which
should not have been rendered In less than
twtntydays after the application for the In
junction. In the second place, tho complaint
upon which the Injunction was granted does
not comply with the statute. It contains posi
tive assertions which the deponents wore not
legnuy aiue to make.
There is not u man, woman, or child In
flravoaend who does not respect John Y, Mc
Kane. He has never before been charged with
any violation ut tlio law. L'ntll this affair broke
out ho hud tho eulogy of the entire press In
this country. And yet this complaint begins
with tho words: 'John Y McKane Is the Chief
of l'ollco of Oravesend and a lawless charac
ter ' That la an Infamous llbol. and that Is a
specimen of the affidavits upon which the in
junction was granted."
(on Latlln. after Pegging In vain for a re
cess, on the ground thar ho hnd n sovero head
ache, went on with tho defence of MoKane.
" Col. llacon," he said, " was a personal and
political enomy of Mr Mchune. Ho was the
one man they should not havo sont down there
to execute your Honor's peaceful order. Lvery
road leading to (iravesend was well guarded
by his men. This military genius, who Is In
vincible In peace and who was Invisible in
war, is the mun ther sent down with a body of
troops and they don't tinny It Now, I ask
ynurllonor, nsatimlng that Col llacon did just
what he sild he did, would your iionor punish
John MeKatin or anbody else who. In tho
oxcltement of the moment, refused to receive

of the other wltnoses corroborated llacon's

citement. HenatorB. Governors, and even
I'resldents, h sulil, accepted Mchane's word
as readily as his bond, I would bo impossible
for McKano to perjure himself.
" a uiv asi-oclatesald." ho concluded, "this
matter was not in the jurisdiction of the court.
I'nless the prosecution takes the position of
declaring that our Iionor was guilty of re
peating, by sanctioning an Illegal number of

thoro was abundant evidence, both document

famous Indian chief and orator Hod Jacket wa
born on the shores of Lake Keuka, near the
prosont village of llrnnchport, Yates county.
Interested parties Insisted that the great red

was erected two years ago. Another reason
why those who presented the evidence

tho welt-grounded tradition, which came from

lako and from Indians ot tho Sonoca tribe,
who occasionally returned to tho scenos of
tholr formor prido and glory, that Hod Jacket's
mother died and was burled there. Ihls wa

According to tho testimony of early settlers

night at a Prohibition rally that Pixley of the

the platform. A Col. Ilabcock wns the orator
of tho occasion. He was a middle-aged man,
and he delivered an address relatlvo to the
evils ot Intemperance which was really touch

and eloquence that showed his slncority.
Pixley was called upon for a speech after the
Colouol. Ho uroso hesitatingly, walked slowly
to the centre of the platform, and. gazing at
the audience for a few moments, said:
"I am a strict temperance mnn luthesenso

A slight cheer went up from the audience nt

Progressive dlnnor parties are finding plenty
of admirers In Uoston. If the girl you tako in
Is slow all you have to do Is to take your wine
