A Sensation in High Life and a Dam age Suit the Result of a June Weddinc. By the Associated PrefB. , Eidswood, N. J., Sept. 22. James Johnson quietly married Miss Amelia Day of this place in Jane last in the face of fierce opposition of his mother. Mrs. John B. Miller, who, far from be ing forgiving after three months, horse whipped the bride and the bride's mother.. Mrs. Miller's second husband is a brother of the late Mrs. Jay Gould, from whom she inherited a consider able fortune, it is said. Mrs. Miller's first husband, from whom she obtained a divorce, is incurably insane. Mrs. Miller's dislike for Hiss Day was based upon the mental inequality of her son and the young woman. It is said her frequent reference to Miss Day as "a Eimpleton" and her brother as "a scheming matchmaker" so angered James that he left home. The marriage of the young folks took place on June 20 at the residence of the bride without the notification to Mre. Miller or the stepfather. The newly married couple left home without delay. When Mrs. Miller heard the news the next day she made an onslaught on the Day mansion in Prospect Btreet. She tried to force her way into the house, and it was neceesary to call an officer to make the woman desist. On Thursday afternoon Mrs. Day and the bride w-ere out driving when they caught sight of Mrs. Miller following them in her trap. Mrs. Miller ordered her driver to overtake them, and as he was slow in responding, she snatched the whip from his hand and struck the horse a blow which brought it to the pony cart. A jerk' on the reins pushed the cart against the fence, skirting the roadway, and further progress was impossible. Whip in hand, Mrs. Miller leaned from the carriage and rained blow after blow upon the head and shoulders of Mrs. Day and her daughter, accom panying each blow with strong verbal expressions of her feelings. The coachman, meanwhile, was try ing to extricate the trap from the tan gle, art! soon as ha got it free urged the horse on at a furious pace to Hokokus. Mrs. Day was cut above the eye by the whiplasb, and her daughter was severely bruised. It is understood legal measures have been instituted against Mrs. Miller for damages. What part Mr. Johnson will play in the quarrel is a matter of con jecture. j FOUL PLAY FEARED. Millionaire Horseman Suddenly Dis appears. New York, Sept. 22.

Baltimore, Md., Sept. 22. George W.. Locke a non-union clothing cutter, was today awarded $2,500 damages against the Clothing Cutters' assembly, Knights of Labor. The verdict was given by a jury in the common pleas court. Lucke's plea for damages was the result of a boycott forced against him by the Knights of Labor. He was employed in one of the largest clothing houses in the city. The Knights of Labor demanded his change because he was a non-union workman. He made application to the assembly for mem bership, but was rejected and threats of boycott against the clothing horse forced him out of employment.

' SWIFT WORK. Justice With Unbandaged Eyes and Lightened Heels. Justice removed the bandage from her eyes and the leaden weight from her heels and set out after Michel Lavre yesterday. About half past six in the morning Lavre stopped at the cobbler shop of E. Walters' in the Gardiner block and said he wanted his shoes repaired but would go to his room after another pair to wear during the mending process. Walters is troubled with nearsighted ness and didn't see his would-be custo mer take a silver watch from the wall. He missed it soon after though and started out on the street looking for a man wearing corduroy trousers for that was the only distinguishing feature he had noticed about the stranger. He soon located him 'and about tbe same time located an officer who ar rested Lavre and found the watch in his pocket. Everything seemed to be going against Lavre for soon after this Recorder Schwartz opened his reforma tory and Lavre was the first matricul ant. He was convicted in a minute and in a half a minute was sentenced to fifty days on the chain gang. In an other half' minute he was on the gang and in another half minute he was on the Btreet. He thus got in a full day and therefore has only forty-nine more davs to serve. KISSING AND FONDLING. An Alleged Blot Upon the Public School System. . Twenty of the patrons of school dis trict No. 14, north of the city, have lodged complaint with Connty Superin tendent Jordan against the teacher of the school, R. A. Winslow, and have demanded that his certificate be re voked. They charge unprofessional conduct and more specifically state under three additional heads that he neglects proper supervision of his pu pils on the playground. Rode boys, they say, are permitted to indulge in profane and vulgar language within the hearing of little girls. The next specific charge is an unusual one and, if sustained, leads to tbe con clusion that the school is maintained for the inculcation of the principles of free love. Say the complainants : "He encourages the male and female pupils to kiss and fondle each other." The third charge is that the teacher is euilty of employing abuaive and in sulting language toward one Bertie Baum in casting a reflection upon her mental capabilities by calling her an idiot. Tbe petitioners ask that the teacher be cited to appear and answer these charges. Yesterdav was the day set for the hearing. The teacher and his accusers were on hand but appeared bo late in the day that the superintendent feared that he would be nnable to conclude the investigation of so much alleged iniquity before night and the matter was continued until next Saturday. AN IMPORTANT DECISION. The Tenure of Office of Ap pointed Supervisors. Their Terms Expire and the Office Must Be Filled at the Next Reg ular Election. Attorney Geueral Francis J. Ileney, has given an important opinion to Gov eronor Hughes on the following ques tions propounded bv the governor: " If a eupervis or holding the long term dies, or resigns prior to the meeting of the county nominating conventions, during the firjt two years of his term of office, and if the said va cancy is filled by appointment in the manner prescribed by section 388 ot the revised statutes of Arizona, 1887, prior to the holding of the said conventions, is it the duty of the governor in issuing his proclamation of election to desig nate said office of supervisor, so filled by appointment, as one of those which must be filled by election?" General Heney says, after a careful examination of the question, "I beg leave to advise, you as follows, to wit : Section 388 Revised Statutes of Arizona, 1887, provides that whenever a vacancy occurs in the office of supervisor, the remaining supervisors together with the probate judge, must fill the vacancy, etc. It wholly fails to specify the term for which said appointee is thus selected. "Section 472 of the Revisf d Statutes of Arizona. 1887, however, supplies tbe in formation. It provides and reads ae follows: "A vacancy in the office of suDervisor is filled as provided in chapter 11 of this act. A vacancy in the office of probate judge is filled by an appointee of the chairman of the board of super visors, treasurer and recorder. All other vacancies in township and county offices are filled by appointments made by the board of supervisors. Ap pointees hold until the vacancies are filled by election." "The words "appointees hold until the vacancies are filled by election" must evidently be conBtrued to mean "these appointees hold until these vacancies are filled by election." In other wrds, I construe this to mean that such ap pointees hold their offices until the first succeeding election has filled the vacancy. "It is vour duty, therefore, under my construction of this law, to designate all such offices, including supervisors for the long term, which have been filled by appointment, as among tbe offices to be filled at the coming elec tion. Yours respectfully, (Signed) Fkancis J. Heney, Attorney General of Arizonal" A BLOCK 41 MYSTERY. An Inmate Supposed to Be Dead in an Unknown Place. Block 41 is agog over a mystery.

The report of the superintendent of the insane asylum shows that for the year just closed. June 30, the cost per capita of the supporting of the insane is 74 cents a day. This cost includes the maintenance of employes of theasvlum. During tbe Eame period the super intendent of the territorial prison's re port shows that the cost per capita for the maintenance of the inmates of that institution is 87 cents a day. At the prison the employes board themselves, bo that the cost for main taining them is cot included in the above figuree. This extraordinary and unexpected difference in the expense of conducting these institutions furnished a problem to the administration, particularly since there were apparent reasons'why the cost'per capita at the prison should be lower than at the asylum. Tbe for mer is more convenient to the market and is free from certain expenses? which naturally attach to the other. The difference can be satisfactorily ac counted for only on the theory of sal aries. At the prison the average salary is $100 a month; at the asylum, 40. In view of the comparative showing of the reports the governor will likely, recommend to the prison board a re- ' duction of salaries and an arrangement for boarding the employes at the institution.
