Railroad Oompanlas Liable to Damage 3
an Kraployo to Injured!
Boston, June 29. A uuclslon by the
full bench of the supreme' court , was
rendered to-day which determines that
a rajlroad company is liable for damag
es for its gross neglect which results to
personal Injuries to one of Its employes,
who at the time of the accident Is rid
Ing upon a train out of working hours
by virtue of a pass ticket issued by the
railroad. The rule Is made so gener
ous as to hold that under the clrcura
stances of the case of the employe.who
was Instantly killed, was at the time a
passenger and the defendant owed him
the duties due to such, despite the fact
that the pass ticket stipulated that the
person accepting it assumed all the
risk of accidents and especially agreed
that the company should not be liable
as a common oarrler.
The decision was rendered la the suit
of James Doyle, administrator of the
estate of Cornelius J. Doyle, against
the Fltchburg railroad company, in
which the plaintiff was given a finding
of 4,500 by the superior court and the
defendants' exceptions being overruled,
Judgment will accordingly be entered
for the plaintiff In that amount.
THERE IS SOT MUCK HARMONY.
Louisiana Senators Oppoie the Sogar
Schedule Hodlflcatlons and Change!
May be Made.
.Washington, June 20. The Louisiana
senators are understood to be strongly
antagonistic to the modifications in the
sugar schedule made by the demooratio
members of the finance- committee. The
modifications change the time when the
schedule - shall go into effect from the
first of January to the date of approval
of the bill. They also continue a part
only of the bounty for this year. Still
another ohange authorizes the secretary
not to impose an additional duty of one
tenth of a cent upon sugar imported
from countries paying an export boun-
ty when he is satisfied that the producer
has not been the beneficiary of such
bounty.
The objections of the Louisiana sen
ators are said to be that these changes
will seriously affect the business of the
sugar produoers and that they are a
direct violation Of the agreement made
in the democratic caucus with reference
to the sugar schedule. It is said the
proposed modifications of the sugar
schedule have been approved by all the
-demooratio members of the commit
tee except Senator JtoPherson, who
is not in the city. In view, however, of
the. strong opposition of the Louisiana
senators further modifications may be
necessary before harmony is. restored,

Boston, June 29. One of the most ex
citing and hotly contested matcnes ever
played on a tennis court was fought
out on the Neighborhood courts this
morning between Foote and Hobart and
after three deuces sets containing for
ty-six hard fought games had been
played the Tale man came put a win
ner. Alter .tne seventh game in u.e
first set it was 'hard ''and fast tennis
all the way. Hajf a dozen times the
match was within ofie point of being
won by one man. or the other and as of
ten his plucky opponent pulled it out
of the fire. "
The spectators' thoroughly enjoyed
the' match,' the more so that in the
first few games.it looked like a sleepy
match, within an easy, victory t for Ho-
barj. No one "Who saw Foote s roor
work-ln the first, seven games had the
slightest idea' that he wduld win. His
placing! throughout,- while 'seldom ag
gressive, wa . most phenomenally
steady. He played' almost entlraly at;
the back of the court. and almost en
tirely on the defensive.
This makes. Hobart's chance of win
ning the tournament a desperate one.
The standing of the men is now, Hovey
won -five and lost one, Hobart won four
and lost two, Chace won ' three and lost
three, Foote' won two and lost four,
Wrenn won none and lost four. Score:

A Variety of Features Bom An Favor
able Others Are Unfavorable Revival In
the Woolen Mills aud Other VntlnoM
Branches.
New York, June 20. Bradstreots' says
a number of unfavorable features
threaten to affect business stability. At'
New Orleans trade in all lines trtnfuller.
At Nashville and Birmingham, Ala., it
is dull and without sign of early Im
provement which is true also at Port
land, Ore. Important among the favor-
uDie features are the rains in the South
Atlantio, Gulf, south, central and north
western states where crop damage has
been feared, with resulting gains to
smau grain, ootton. fruit and vegetable.
New England woolon mills at work on
dress goods and men's wear report a
moderate revival in orders, and shoe
shipments from eastern factories hold
up well, while Boston banks report in
creased demand for loans and Provi
dence jewelers fair orders for autumn
delivery. Demand has inoreased for
paints, oils and glass at Pittsburg and
for Iron at Philadelphia. St. Louis and
Chioago at the latter poiuts- the market
ueing nrmer.
The most favorable report comes
from St. Louis, where the volume of
business after a marked increase -within
a week is reported about natural,
Kansas City jobbers announce receipt
of fall orders in staple lines, and Mil
waukee bankers report the demand for
loans is increasing. Jobbers at the
three large Minnesota cities report an
improved feeling among country . mer
chants in that state, and North Dakota
renewed in orders recently received.
There is an improved trade at Memphis,
Jacksonville and Charleston, due pri
marily to the effect of rain on the crops.
Atlanta announces the volume of trade
for June equal to that in June last year
and that country merohants are order
ing for future delivery. There is more
activity in nearly all lines at Augusta
and the demand for cottons is heavier.
Continued improvement is reported
from Galveston, where collections are
easier.
Exports of wheat equal 1,747,000
bushels against. 8,971,000 in the last
week of June, 1893. The total number
of actual business failures in the Uni
ted States in the last six months (fall
ures in which assets are less than liabili
ties) is 6,528, whioh is more than in any
preceding similar period an increase Of
4.tt pet cent, compared with the first
half of 1893 and 22 per cent, more than
in mnnt.ha nf - r
The present tendency, in the number
of failures to decrease is shown bv thA
fact that while at One. end of Hhe fust
quarter of the onrrent year the increase
over the like period last year was 900
failures, the morease this year over -last
at the end of a half year is only 289
failures. The New England failures of
the period were 1,009, with assets of
$4,S81,97L Last year there were 919
failures with assets of fe6,69,403 in the
nrst nan or i8. uj ,
Trade in the province of Ontario has
been quiet, owing to the election Tues

situation in Nova Scotia beyond favor

Btory.
The chamber of the board of council-
men lat evening had every uppeurnuce
of having been transformed into a court
room and such a transformation had
taken place. The investigation Into the
charges alleged to have been mndo by
Garbage Contractor Swayiin against
noaltb Officer Wright and Clerk Uulley
of the board of health took place
there. The members of tlio board
mt around a semicircular tnblo
with Mayor Sargent in tlio center.
At the right side of the tablo sat Con
tractor Swayne, his wife and hit coun
sel, Attorney Charles 8. Hamilton. At
the left side of the table were seated the
two accused officials and their counsel
Attorney's Asher and Ely. All the
commissioners wore present nnd there
were- also present about 100 residents
aud property owners.
- It was shortly after 8 o'clock when
the mayor called the meeting to ordor,
lu the meantime copies of the Register,
In whioh the alleged charges were
printed, had been distributed by Clerk
Bailey among the members of the board,
yVKer the meeting had been called to
order Commissioner Blake was appoint
ed cleric. The resolutions adopted by
the board of health at the last meeting,
providing for the Investigation, were
read, as was also .the articlo from the
Register, and the meeting was open for
business. 1
At this point Attorney Ely asked
"Have any specific charges been pre
sent to the board?"
Commissioner Graves: "None have
been prestnted. . I move that Mr.
Swayne take the stand and tell his
story."
Dr. Flelschner: "Will Mr. Swayne
make any charges or did he make the
Statements to the Register reporter. If
he don't I don't see that we have any
business to transact here and we may
as well goTiome."
Attorney Hamilton; "If that Is to be
the method of conducting this so-called
investigation I wUl wash my hands of
the entire matter andetop right here,
We are not here to find out whether
Mr. Swayne talked with a reporter or
not. What we are here for Is to in
yestigate official malfeasance in office,
if you want to max a inorougn in
vestigation we are ready to help you
and will call all bur witnesses."
Attorney Asher: i "It Is Just as I ex-
peoted. Swayne don-, -want to make
any charges, but- wants to prove that
he Is a good garbage collector at the
expense of the city, Swayne should be
put on the stand and asked: "Did these
officials make the alleged proposals or
not?" Then we can go aneaa.
' After considerable further discussion
ic was decided thAt Mr. Swayne should
taa;e mo siaau wm wiu ii mo. w...
menoed. -?'."
Contractor Swayne was called to tha
stand and testified as follows: "My
name Is Walter S. Swayne. I live at
61 Carmel avenue and have betn gar
bage contractor under the board of
health since February 1, 1894. I know
DV. Wright and Ward Bailey. On Mon
day, April 2, I went to the office of the
board of health and was confronted
with- eleven complaints; On the previ
ous Saturday there Were only six such
complaints. At the time I was there,
Monday, Bailey . said to me; 'Hare,
Swayne, you're making money, you'd
belter give me an interest in your pigs
if you want to save your contract.'
replied that 1 couldn't do it. On April
there were thirteen complaints given
to me. I thought there must be some-
thlng,wrong about it and made up my
mind to investigate. At this time
Bailey 'said to me during a conversa
tion about money; 'Tou'fe not like old
Lawrence. . He used to be free with his
money , and help out the poor boys.
When I went to the offloe of the board
of health again on April 80 Bailey said:
'I am short of $100. Tou will lose your
contract unless you help me out.' At
this time the complaints came in at the
rate Of about six per day. The meeting
of the board ws held on May 22. That
flight' 208'. complaints Were read to the
board by Clerk Bailey. Of this number
only .ninety-seven were given to me.
Tne balance, I believe, were fictitious.
During the next two weeks only thirty
four complaints came in.- The day fol
lowing the meeting of the board !
agreed to give htm $60 a month in con
sideration for whlh he was to keep the

me he wanted, to see me on Orange
street, between Trumbull and Grove
U4 inciGUH W.VIt VTftlKllb nil"
streets,, the- following, morning between
9 and 10 o'clock. : I met him there. My
wife was with me in a carriage, I got
out and walked a3oui twelve feet
away ''to Wright's cai-rlns. My wife
was thoro all the time At that time
Wright said to me: 'if you give ma S300
I'll protect you and save your contract.'
I told hm I couldn't lo it and then ho
came down to $200, which I agreed to
giye him out of the n6xt pay day.' "
On tlio 51 h of June I again saw Bailey
and he said he wanted $50. I (old him
hadn t it and showed him my bank
book. ' I told Mm ; 'I'll try to borrow
It,' I went to see 'Attorney Hoadley,
but he was not in. The next day I
went to Judge Cable, who was collect
ing, a mortgage, for ine. I got $15
there,' a check for $10 made out to him
endorsed by him. to my order and $6
In cash. I then went to the olllce of
the board of health and handed the
check and cash to Bailey. While I
was endorsing, the check, Health In
spector Mix was at the long table in
the room. He then came up to Bailey
and gave him a complaint against me
from 621' State street Bailey took the
complaint and tore it up. I did not go
to tne omce again on Baturaay as I
was sick. The following Tuesday I re
celved' latw, scnt me, bjrL BaJiejr, In
which he said that he wanted to see me
at ones on Important garbage mattera
I did not see him again. I gavo the
check and money to bailey Iste In the
'afternoon of June 6. After that for a
while there were hardly any complaints,
Of the 208 complaints read to the board
by Ualley I only received ninety-seven.
The ninety-seventh complaint was
given to mo about 6 o'clock on the af
ternoon of the evening that the meeting
was held. At that meeting 208 com
plaints were made to the board.
On cross examination by Attorney
Ely, Contractor Swayne stated that he
had never had a list of the 208 names
and had never seen iny such list. He
had received the ninety-seven from
Bailey. These were read from the Ale
and the residences were put down by
Swayne In his book. The question of
the contract between Farnham and
Swayne In reference to the ownership
of some pigs was called up. The contract
was drawn up by Clerk Bailey. Ho was
also asked In reference to the article
which appeared In the Register. He
said th' t he had told the story to
Register reporter at his home, but did
not rif.ollect whether or not he said
anything to the reporter about pigs or
Lawence. Swayne also said on cross
examination that when he agreed to
give Bailey the $30 a month, Bailey
soJJ to him, "I'll keep out falne com
plaints and save your contract."
On cross examination by Attorney
Asher, - Swayne testified that he had
been a resident of this city about
year before he got the garbage con
tract, that ho was born In Lancaster
county, Penn.,and was forty-four years
old. He was in the milk business in
Boston prior to coming to this city and
prior to that time he had been In the
drug business In Philadelphia.
"Has any of your property been des
troyed by fire? asked Attorney Asher,
Attorney Hamilton. "Objected to,
Tou must confine yourself to the sub
ject matter of the direct examination
Attorne Asher. "We claim it. This
man has brought charges against these
two officials and we have a right to go
Into his whole life. If we can show
that he has been guilty of arson or en
gaged In any nefarious business, we
have the right to Introduce it as -showing
that the witness is not a credible
one.
Attorney Hamilton still claimed that
the matter was not germaln to the in
vestigation, that there was no record of
any such transaction, and that he had
never' been charged with the crime by
any one and it was manifestly unfair
to try to Introduce such evidence.
Attorney Asher stated that he ex
pected to show that Swayne had' had
trouble with Insurance companies In
reference to the adjustment; of leases
by nre ana that he naa been charged
by these companies with the crime of
arson.
The members of the board considered
the question of the admlBsablllty "of
the question for some time, after Which
they decided to exclude It and the cross
examination was continued on another
tack. . , ,
In replies to queries by Attorney
Asher, Mr. Swayne said that Dr.'
Wright had spoken to him inihe-hall
way on tne nignt or tne meeting; after
the session. There were others there
but we went away' so that they could
not hear the conversation. Dr. Wright
spoke first and said that he wanted to
meet me on Orange street. . He did not
tell me for ' what purpose... He whis
pered in my ear. When we met the
next morning on Orange street,-' the
first thing he said was: "No-w give me
$500 and I'll fix the thing up and save
your contract." He said it very low at
first and as I did not hear him, he said
the same thing over again in a louder
tone. I told him I couldn't do it. He
then sald"Gle me $200 In a shake and
I'll tend to it. After a short time I
told him I'd give him the money the
next pay day. To this he said: "That
will be all right and I'll keep out the
complaints." He did not tell me how
he was going to do this. The conversa
tion took place between . 9 and 10
o'clock in the morning. I don't recol
lect telling the Register reporter the
published statements about Wright. I
was to give the money to Wright the
next pay day, June 9. I have never
made , a sworn statement about the
charges against Dr. Wright and- Clerk
Bailey.
In reply to a question from Commis
sioner Graves, Swayne said that when
Bailey received tha money he believed
that he put the money in his pocket
and the check somewhere else. When
gave him the check Bailey said:
"You'd better endorse the check," and I
endorsed it. Mr. Mix was there all the
time. Bailey acknowledged at that
time that there were some false com
plaints and said that he would stop
them. He also said that Bailey under
stood that-the moneywas for this-purpose
and he received it With that un
derstanding. '
Rutherford Trowbridge,' residing at
70 Grove street, testified that he bad
lived there three years, and had never
made any complaint to the board of
health about the non-removal of gar
bage between February 1 and May 23,
and that no one in the house had made
any such complaint. , Like testimony
was given by' Mrs. Charles Pickett of 46
Spring street, Mrs. William Arnold of
112 Dixwell avenue, James W, . Schur
man of 304 Greenwich street, John Met-
calf of 14 George street, Mrs. Beckley
