In a few days after assuming the

not been rented or any disposition

therefore felt it mv duty to uive those

You will observe I have given you
statement of the revenue derived
from the various courts in the county;
and the amount that each court has
cost tho county during tho quarter,
and in doing so t desire to call your
attention to the enormous expense of
the Criminal Court. Should this con
tinue in the same ratio tho expense of
that court will amount to about $.'10,
0i 0 annually.
In this connection l would hiwchi
and urge upon pitch justice tho impor
tance of, wnen it is possible for them
to determine a case brought before
them for trial, to do so, iu order to
keen them out of the Criminal Court,
as most of them aw acquitted
after getting there, and they having
the right in misdemeanor cases to
commit directly to the Work-House.
1 would most respectlully cull your
attention to the large reduction in the
amount of outstanding warrant
against the county, reducing it from
the grand total oi (,ivki v; iinciiuiing
the amount of :t:i,4(U I'll issued dur-
inir the nuarter) down to Slo.l.SJ (it.
In this matter I wish to say that this
is not the result of less liabilities
against tho county, but is the result
of an unusual rush in the payment of
tax during the months of January and
February, which fund him been ap
plied to the redemption ol county
I desire also to call your especial at
tention to the item of bridges. You
will see from tbe amount paid out on
that account during tlie quarter,
should it continue at that rat tne
item of bridging alone will reach
about $25,000 annually. 1 am in
formed bv the Bridge Superintendent
that there is not much probability of
the cost of bridging being mucli less,
and as tho court is now looking to
the importanco (from an economical
standH)int) to the building of iron
bridges across some of tho most nn
nortant streams in the county, I would
most respectfully suggest to tho cotlrt
that the Committee on Finance to bo
appointed bv this court to fix the tax
lew. be reouested to levy a bridgo
tax and ny other special tax that
they may deem wise and proper, so as
to meet an our oougationg promptly
and at the same time looking to an
economical administrat'on of county
nfliiirs, as it is evident from tl e rapid
increase of our population and tlie in
creasing demands upon the County
Treasury, and the limit in our levy
to thirty cents for county purposes
livthe U'trislature. that it will tie mi
possible to mret our obligations
promptly, and whalcverjdiseount. otir
credit may be the tax-payers suiter in
the same proportion. ' Respect fully

IDA BENE ITS STORY.
JiEW LHiUT OS THE CAl'SKY
t he Woman Insists to tho Last I'pjn
ller Ionocenre-ne's Mop
On Sunday aftenuon at 4 o'c'ock,
after receiving s piriinal ministiationa
at the hiinilscf a De'gubnriiig clergy
man, Ida iseuiie't. tbe only surviving
vie Im of I lie II niatjo street tragedy,
qaitt'y Ureal lit d Li r last. Weeping
women loroamiru mr Dea-3iue,
gentle hands clot-ed her eyelids, and
ber daareet ineud sat vigil by toe
corpse oi tier wiiose oeosiue sne naa
never leit uoce tbe nour wnen tne
faUl sbot was fired. The dying
woman s'ems lo have met deatn
calmly and resinnedly, and ber belter
nature asserted itsell in her last hours,
and it was tt bar own request that
minister waa sent tor. A lew noors
before ber death she called to her bed
side ber intimate friend and relaVion,
'Aoe Carles, and besought her to
solemnly pledge herself to lead a better
Me. The promise was given and a
smile ol happiness llilted over the
dying woman's countenance, as she
closed ber eyes and silently awaited
tbeerimmecsenger. With thecertainty
ofdta httuing her iu the face, she
was pretsad to make a statement
of hiw the trr gsdy otcuirad, and nil
go to htr grave with her lips sealed.
She did Bit reluctantly, and only on
thn assurauc) that no publication ol
hir verrinn ol the atlair would be
made. The aeciet leaked out, fcoar.
avm. and an Appeal reporter cue
ceeded lust eight In hearing ihs dyiDg
wo'ca .'s own vert ion ol the occur
renre as told in the very pretence of
death. She said :
IDA HINNKTT's STATEMENT.
"Sunday night 1 went to Oakey's
beer saloon, on Beale ttreet, to get a
Pitcher ol beer. Two well known so
tisty men of this city were in the bar
room, and they insulted me and fol
lowed me out. Uoaded by their r
peated insults, I threw tbe pitch r at
them, when one of them jumped en
mn and beat me unmfr.ifnllv.
1 trot aicav frjm them and
r.n borne and told Al. what
occurred. He snatched his pittol and
ataited for the saloon. Boon be re
turned and began to abuse me, cuarg
in me with having been untrue to
h m. bavins nearu so irom tne man
who awaolted to me. He grew mora
and more angry, and finally begun
hotttinir me. We Quarreled all
that night, and Monday
nisrht when be came borne he
seemed to have heard frts'i tales
about me and the quarrel wai re
newed Tueetlav nmbt be did not
altnn at home, but Wednesday morn
r i 1.1L.-1 i
ins tie came nome anu aaiu no unu
clear proof that I had betrayed him
and pre sjed me to admit that it was
so. 1 finally confessed tha. I had
gone out to meet men. luenne be
came violent and beat me and inn me
intniiiB vard. Then he called me
aud I refined to come, being afraid ol
him. At last I d'd go Intj tbe bouie
again, and went f my trunk to aok
it. As I knelt before it I taw him
take the pistol Irom His overcoat
pocket, where it bad remaine l since
Sunday night, and sdvance toward
me in a tliieaienlng manner. I
sprung up and grabbed the pis
tol. We had a struggle, but
bis strength was greater thin mine
and he turned tbe pistol toward me
and fired while I still held it. 1 tell,
and he rushed out intj the next room
and I bca-d another eho I could
not are him from where I lay and
rolled over to the clde ot the loom,
near tbe door, and looked, raising my
self on my elbow, at him. After that
I remember nothing."
There are some corroborating cir
cumstances that give color to the
above version. It will be remembered
that the woman was found in a pool
of blocd on a line with the door. At
a dlBtancs of eight feet laterally from
where abe lay was a thin pool of fresh
blood about six inches in diameter
This must have been the spot where,
according to her vorsion, she first fell,
and from where she t rawled to (he
spot where she was found. The powder
burns on her lunds also conoborate
tbe theory of a struggle, hut here
all probability that her version ol tbe
story is correct ends. The fact that no
powder burns were foindon Bennett's
clothing, an'i the position where the
pi.t il was found, are circumstances
irreconci labia with the theory of the
dead wo.nau's innocence. It is doubt
ful whtuher the myttery that sur
rounds the cabs is eve' satisiacroriiy
ONE OF THK INCIDENTS
connected with this strangs affair, that
wiil long linger in the memory oi
those who witnessed it: About 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon os C ar
los, the dead woman's botom friend,
called at Hoist's and requeued to be
permitted to take one last loos at tue
body. Tne request was granted, aod
she was conducted to tne Disa
rm nt of the establishment, wnere
the bodv lay embalmed and
ready lor interment. Tbe cloth
that covered the body was removed
down to the neck, and the head of
Irta Bennett, white as mainie anu
rigid as stone, met her friend's gaze.
For one moment sue gueu onuu n
Biltnoe, and then, witb a sou anu
flood of tears, she stooped and Etsaeu
the pale lips and icy brow ana wept
as thon.h her heart would break.
Again and again was sbe urgeu to ue-
sist, that there migm ne poison m
every kiss, but she paid no heed to
such warnings, snd when an effort was
to hide the sight, she neggeu anu im
plored lor "one minute more, one
minute more." It was ,cene to
touch a heait ol stone, and althoukh
those who surrounded her were inured
by custom to witnessing the wildest ex
hibitions ol grief, tbey were not un
moved by tbe sight of tn it one woman
in all thn world weeping over
the remains ol "one more unfor
tunate." We turn irom tnis ecou
ro one not quite so touching,
tt nnairs tlmt there ia to be a dis
graceful fight for ipoils, almost over
the dead woman's body. Yfs'erday.
a most before the body had been placed
in its coffin, the furoitura and clothes
.it thai visrihle effects of Id
Bennett were levied upon. It
.nna-a that in the nreeence of
eitncMHM the dving woman
made a verbal ttBtament, disposing of
r,t .,,..1. !!tt!a trinkets and articles 01
wearinat annarel as sbn might truth
r-n- ...n har own. This expression
ol her dying wishes, it seems, is to be
disregarded, and a general giab made
by somebody lor everything in 'ight
Wa trn.f the efioit may iail. The
bodv will probably be buried here, as
tha Hen 1 woman's step-uther has
wired Instructions to that effect. The
mother it lying very ill, prostrated by
