Burke walked up the main table to tho

Jrf "Order, gentlemen, orderl" he bellowed, and

f Mr. Burke's services wore again necessary
bctoro the Sergeant could go on. Ho continued

5 "You. sir, havo proved your right to a belief
Jf?t that strict dlsclplinu can hotter bo maintained
iff' by kindness and frankness than by harsh or
Tu sneaking means." Capu Collins had to raise his
? voice above a growl and resort to sharp, quick
S2?m.nds.- reinforced by cries from CaDtaln
Fitspatrick and Sergennts Dillon and Eng
fc land, before Mr. Burko's clarion tones
Wf uld obtain obedience. The speech ended:

& The Captaln-dldn't say much in his reply.
. . Something was the matter with his voice. If he
had deserved any credit for an honest effort to
do his duty, he said, he had been ten times over-
RrdJyll??1F.nt? demonstration. He assured
-t the men that his feeling ot permanent Interest
, In each and every one of them and his gratltudo
for their gallant support of his authority were

Society for the 'Prevention' of Cruelty to Ani

Vied to poison his horse.
"I was standing at the Gansevoort Market

a man sneak up behind my wagon. My horse
had a feed bag strapped over his nose, and was
eating oats. This man came from1 behind the
wagon and put something into tho feed bag. I
noticed bis, act,, and, took. the. fed bag away
from the horse and examined It, I found a big
ball of all meal, andI havebrought it here now.
1 think It contains poison, beoauso this same
man poisoned one of my horses a year ago."
The superintendent of the society assigned
Dr. Batten to tho caso, and Dr. Batten took
Mallln down to the Health Board rooms, where
the boll of oil meal waaturnod over to Chemist
Ledcrlo for analysts.
When Dr. Lodorle had made an analysis of
the oil meal'he informed Dr. Batten that It con
tained arsenlo in nufllclcnt quantity to poison
halt a dozen horses.
Mnllin. the owner ot the horse, then accom
panied Dr. Batten to Jefferson Market Police

San Francisco, Dec 30. It leaked out to-day
that the voyage of the big clipper ship Henry
B. Hydo, from Now York to this city, was one
long mutiny, and would probably have resulted
ln the murder or marooning of Capt. Scrlbner
and the first mato if the mutineers had known
anything of navigation. It seems that the crew
was composed of Bowery touehs. Tho mate at'

forecastle and hatched a conspiracy to defy the
two o (fleers.
Patrick O'Donnoll, the leader, openly in
sulted the captain, and it was a common oc
currence for the crew to respond to orders with
gross abuse and profanity. Capt. Scrlbner re
fused to prefer any charges because of the delay
that would result, but he warned tho shipping
commissioner who paid oft the men to-day to
give them a bad record.

then st sea. -Learning that when he was'
ashore Gray played an accordion, for dances
on the.west.slde, Lang doffed bis uniform, and
arming himself with a tin whistle and a book
of popular songs, he made the rounds .of the
saloons frequented by the steamer cook when
Aa the policeman can play everything on a
tin whistle which the instrument la capable of,
he met with a rousing success up and down
the town. After each concert he asked if any
one in the crawd kpew of a fint-claM accordion,
player who would 'do sonfo- duets with hfm at
the New year's reception of the "Early
Dawns." No one was found who would rec
ommend an accordion player as fit to appear
with Lang in a professional capacity, until a
saloon at Tenth avenue and Twenty-sixth
street was reached on Wodnesday night. There
one ot the disguised policeman's delighted list
eners declared that he knew Just the man for
the Job, a friend ot his, he said, the best ac
cordion player In New York.
"Take mo to him," said Lang, doing a double
shuffle on the barroom floor.
One more tuns and another round of drinks
were demandul as the prloe of the information.
Lang warbled "They're after me," as an ac
companiment to the gurgling, of a dotenimoro,
mixed ales, and then followed his guide to 409
West Twenty-eighth street, where he found
Gray ln,a room on the top floor playing "'Tie
swoet to be secure" en his accordion.
. The policeman was Introduced as a musician
looking for a running mate. Lang was willing
that Gray should have a little fun. too, before
becoming a prisoner, so he suggested a few
trial duets as preliminary to their performance
for the "Early Dawns." The policeman piped
tip on "Homo, Sweet Home," and Gray fol
lowed him on the accordion. Then Gray
called for "Who will care for mother nowl''
The rehearsal was brought to a successful close
with "Come play with me," suggested by the
Gray was delighted with the prospect of be-,
longing to a crack musical team, lie felt as'
sato as If there had never been a Mrs. Gray' to
abandon. He even admitted to his new friends
that he had been keeping shady because his
wife was after him.
Long couldn't stand it any longer. Ho took
the man s admission concerning his wlfo as a
cue, and, throwing back his coat to show his
shield, presented the warrant.
Then they both laughed-tho bluecoat and
his prisoner. Gray was so tickled at tho Joke
that he could not resent the arrest.
"I've been nabbed before," he said, "but
you re tho slickest copper I ever saw."
Magistrate Deuel paroled the prisoner yes

PaThuow, N, J Deo. 80.-The legislative
committee appointed. at the last session of the'
.Legislature to consider the subject ot the poll
lutloa'ot ho Passato Hirer heldla meeting in
the Ceuptil Chamber of the City Hall last
night tor the purpose of receiving the vlews.pt
the cjtireua -of -Peterson on the sewerage ques
tion. Mayor Hinchllffe called the meeting to
order, am) Senator Ilobert Williams presided
aa Chairman of the joint committee.
There was so disousslon until Alderman lis.
gulre took the floor. Mr. Maguiro objected to
the tax that would be placed on the munici
palities along the Uno of tho. sewer. He said
that if the'property ot the State, which Is now
assessed at $800,000,000, wcro assessed at 1U
true valuation of 62,000,000.000, there would
be enough to build thn trunk sewer proposed
by tho Pasialo Vidloy Sewerage Commission
wlthot t levying any tax at nil upon the cities
and towns, affected. Mr. Maguiro said ho
would have tho Stato pay the debt, but Bona
tot Johnson said that would be impossible., as
the people benoftted would haveito bear the ex
penee. Tho Aldormab'stld that the Stato bad
given away so much of the water of the river
tht'h.er was very little left. Assemblyman
Uledhlll wanted to know how much bad been
jrfvon away, and Mr., Maguiro answered, "All
ln toe upper water sheds."
Senator Johnson said that the water com
panies used only about 8 per cent, of the water.
Mayor.Ulnohllfe asked If the commission had
made any estimate as to what would be the
expense to Peterson tor the trunk sewer. Dr.
Marsh, one of the Commissioners, said that
expert englnoers had figured the total cost at
about $0,600,000, of which Peterson would
have to bear probably one-fourth.
Lawyer lliohael Dunn said that Newark would
not bear its proportion of tho expense, aa It
2S!?SuU.a S00!? "ewer system of its own for
$350,000. It had been decided by the courts
that a city could deposit its sewage wherover
It found tide-water, so that Paterson could
carry its sewers to Pasaalo and empty them
there. The meeting adjourned about 10:10.
