Tho accident that caused her death occurred Sunday afternoon. She was driving with her son.

In this case tho claimant was in jured by three unknown soldiers jumping on him while he was climbing into his bunk. As sistant Secretary Hawkins held that Broken thaw was not injured while in the line of duty, and declined to graut a pension on that ground. Assistant Secretary Bussey holds that Rroken shaw was in his proper place. ready to perform such duty as he might be called upon to do, and was guiltless of any act contributory to the as sault; that the injury alleged as the ground of pension happened to him without any fault or neglect on his part, and that he is entitled to a pension.

Jones on January 23 last,was resumed -Assistant District Attorney Coyle for the government and J. McD. Carrington for the defendant. It is alleged that the accused had an opportunity to take the bank, and the money was found at the house of Alice Johnson, with Chloe Heard, to whom accused had given it. For the defense. Ada Cross, a small colored girl now in jail on three convictions and sen tenced to six months in each for petit larceny, testified that she went to the back gate with Fanny Butcher, who came out with the bank, and down the alley, broke it open, and gave witness ?4. The defendant testified that Fanny Butcher gave her a bundle and told her to keep it lor her. She acknowledged that the officer came to the house looking for money, but slio did not tell him, for it was not his money, and she was keeping it for Fanny. She was at Mrs. Jones' when Fanny was there, and lit her in the gate. In rebuttal, Fanny liutcher was called aud denied all knowledge of the bank. On cross examination she admitted having been at Mrs. Jones', hut when she found that Mrs. Jones was not At home left. John Battcntield. who was at work on the day of the loss, testified that the small colored girl was not in the house. The case was argued at some length, Mr. Carrington ou the theory that the accused told the truth and that the Butcher girl was the thief, and Mr. Coyle that the accused <ook the money. CONVICTED AND SENTENCED. The jury found a verdict of guilty ou one in dictment. The court said that from the experience on Saturday last the rule of bringing up a lot of prisoners on Saturdays for sentence would be better honored in the breach than in the ob servance; he had concluded, as far as possible, to impose sentences on the date of conviction. In view of the fact that this was, as far as known, her first offense, and from the further fact that she was a mother, he imposed a sen tence of oiie year in the Albany penitentiary. Trouble About a Dltcli. About two weeks since, in the Circuit Court, division No. 2, Justice Montgomery, the case of J. R. Hertford against the District for damages to defendant by entering upon his land at Mt. Pleasant and digging a ditch was tried, but the result was a disagreement of the jury.

THE DAY'S TOPICS IN LONDON. The Liberal Victory at Rochester?Cor ruption in the 15ritis.Ii Indian Service. Special Cable Dispatch to The Evexixo Shi London, April 17.?The defeat of the torics I at Rochester yesterday adds another instance to Kenningtou and Chelsea, where the notori ous misdeeds of former members caused the victory of the rival party. The Hughes. Ilal lett and Dilke scandals are well known. At | Kenningtou the late tory member had misap- j plied trust moneys. He and ilallett accept the inevitable and retire into private life. Dilke is trying to re-enter it and already bits on local boards. IIo is now spoken of as a candidate at the next election for Home safe liberal seat. Among others, Carmarthenshire is mentioned, although the Welsh dissenters are numerous there. The character of the British service in India receives a heavy blow by the secretary's de cision to-day dismissing Crawford, the commis sioner of the central division of the Bombay presidency. It acquits him of actually receiv ing bribes, but convicts him of heavy borrow ings from the natives, which rendered him open to suspicion audtemptation. 'J he decision is the more significant because Crawford has many influential friends, and Lord lleadv, gov ernor of Bombay, who insisted on the inquiry, has been fiercely assailed by the Anglo-Indian press. The facts being as they are. general satisfaction is expressed at the secretary's de termination to purge the civil service. George Lewis yesterday delivered the state- ' ment of the claim of the English libel action against the Timet, in which i'arnell asks one hundred thousand pounds damages for the publication of the forged letters. In the Irish action already down for hearing he claims fifty thousand pounds. One hundred thousand pounds is s.nd to be one year's profit of the Times in its palmy days. MADE MUSIC BUT NO MONEY.

THE >1ISSIN<; DAN>1 ARK. Excitement In New York Over a Re port that She Had Heeu Heard From. Nr.w York. April 17.?Considerable excite ment was caused in the lower part of the city this morning by the report that a Ytsey street firm in the foreign fruit business bad been in formed that some vessel in the foreign fruit trade had picked up the crew and passengers of the abandoned steani^-hip Danmark. J he story was that a man named Strauss had re ceived a cablegram to that effect, but the only member of the Foreign Fruit exchange who owns tlint name says he has received no information on" the subject. Fur ther investigation develops the pro ability that the rumor grew out of the opinion expressed among fruit men yesterday to tile effect that the Alsatia. of the Anchor line, re ported as leaving the l'ock of Gibraltar on April 1, was more than likely to have fallen in with the Danmarlt or her boats. The Alsatia carries fruit from Mediterranean ports, and if | by any good fortune she picked up the passen , gers and crew of the abandoned steamer, she is large enough to give them accommodation. j She is due at this port at any moment, aud her arrival is anxiously awaited." THE DENMARK BRINGS SO SEWS.

He f ill start to Detroit to talk to President Sterns to-day. Captain Anson, who has developed into a howling swell, said: "I have not signed any of the men w ho were with uie. but I do not antic ipate trouble with them. 1 see that some au thorities are rating Chicago very low in the league, but I will back the Chicago club for a place against any of them. I nave already wagered a *100 suit of clothes each with Mana ger Mutrie. of New York, aud Billings, of the Boston directory, that we will beat those clubs out this season, and I am willing to make a similar wager with any man in this city that we will beat the Pittsburgs. Philadelphia wauts our outfielder, Ryan, but they must make us a different proposition to have us consider it. One thing surprises me. and that is the anxiety of the Pittsburg club to secure Row* and White, of last season's Detroit club. 1 would aooner have Kuehne and Smith, of your team, than either of them. I would very much like to have the former at Chicago if the Pitteburg club is tired of him." From Wall Street To-Day. New York.
