Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co. Gent: I have
a very fine mare that ha. had a bone spavin
for a long time. I tried every thing man
could devise to cure it, but all in vain, and
was a bout to give it up when a friend of
mine in this city camo to me an recommend--1
ed Kendall's Spavin Cure, which I tried with
grand results, removing the bone clear and '
elean. Then I sent 25 cents to you for one
of your illustrated horse books, and I think
there is no better book printed on the horse
and his diseases. I have taken great interest
in it, and have since sold eighteen copies for
vou to mv neighbors, and will try and do
what good I can by getting them for others.

The above extracts clearly show Vulture's
mistake. "Debut" was the word he should
have used, but as debutante is a larger
word, and Vulture has a weakness for large
words, he thought it would answer just as
well. When we think that a bright and
shining light of the Senior class of our High
Schcd could have been guilty of making
such a gross mistake, we almost involuntari

The much talked of, and anxiously avait
ed Banquet of the Y. M. G. Ii. C, occirred
rnuay evening oi last week at Masonic
Hall, and to say that it wan all that was ex-
iH.'Cted would fall far short of giving a cot .
rect idea of the magnificence of the entertain
ment. The members of the club, particular
ly the committee of arrangmenta have been
working hard for the last month to make of
this entertainment the grandest ever given
by the colored citizens of Indianaiolis, and
how well they succeeded is known and attest
ed to by those who participated. The guests
began arriving about 6 o'clock and hv 10
the spacious hall contained an assemblage
of "fair women, and brave men" which in
point of elegance was more than was looked
lor, all that could be wished, Count ilfaut.
At 10 o'clock, the band nlavinar a march
the gents with their ladies promenaded
around the hall and were then seated at the
supper table. The repast being concluded,
President Roberts delivered a brief but point-
J f 1 r 1 I if r .1 i I
eu auuress oi welcome in oenau oi the Uluu,
announced the toasts which received short
and appropriate responses. The annual ad
dress was delivered by Mr. Henry Moore,
in which he congratulated the members of
the Club, that so many of those who were
present at the last annual Banquet were jer
mitted to again assemble together, and hoped
that in the future as in the past, each mem
ber of tlie Club would work for the good of
of the same, ever striving for its puritv and
perpetuation. The toast, The Golden" Rule
Club" was responded to by Mr. E. E. Out
land, during which he gave a brief history
of the Club, stating its beneficial results, de
scribing its past, portraying its present and
forecasting its future. ""Indianapolis" was
responded to by Hon. J. S. Hinton. In tlie
course of His remarks, he spoke of Indiana
polis when he first became a resident of it-20
5'ears ago, spoke of the Indianapolis of today
noting the ci lianges that had taken place in
the interim; compared the josition occupied
by the colored citizens of today, with that
occupied by them 25 years ago, " and proph
esyed that our hoosier capital would yet be
one of the first cities ot the Union." "The
Prists" was responded to by Mr. Ben D. Bagby,
of the leader, who very brielly described its
growth the advantages" accruing from it,
the part it had taken in civilizing and hu
manizing the world, and the iKisition it
might be exacted to take in all progressive
movemnts. "Our absent friends" was respond
ed to by Mr. Jas. II. Thomas, who in a very
feeling manner refered to the absent ouls and
hoped that wherever they roamed the angel
of happiness might be hovering closJly
about them. "The Church" was responded
to by Elder Manson of the Blackford street
Gmrh. His address was lengthy and inter
esting, reviewing the workings of the church
from its inception to the present time. The
toasts disposed of, the tables cleared away,
the band struck up a lively air and the mer
ry throng glided away in the giddy mazes
of the Maitz, which continued til late in the
morning. The elegant costumes worn by the
ladies was the subject of mnch comment by
the gentlemen. They were indeed superb,
and did time and space permit, we would
take pleasure in describing some of them.
We will however leave this to the imagina
tion of our readers. The Club will hold its
next meeting the last Monday in next Octo

The time honored custom of "praying"
the old year out, was pretty generally obser
ved in the various churches of the city, and
when the bells rung out the tidings that the
eventful year of 18S1 was numbered with
the past, thousands rose from bended kn-jes
and sent up glad shouts and loud praise,
tokens of thankfulness that thev had been
spared to see the dawn of another vear. The
first day of the year being Sunday, the reg

a grand levee was maintained during the
whole of the afternoon. The ladies were in
the best of humor and every caller was made
at his ease by the courteous manner in
which the ladies received, and the kind at
tention bestowed on the guests. After the
calling hour. 10 o'clock quite a number
of young people assembled at Mrs. Hi lies'
and enjoyed a social dance the remainder of
the evening. At Mrs. Carter's, 41 N. Ills,
street the ladies had made extensive prepa
rations to receive, and it seemed a favorite
resort for the young gentlemen. The table
was replete with tempting viands, and a
heart v welcome was bestowed on all who
called. At Miss Lillie Smith's, 40S AVest
North street the same scene presented itself
as at other places. Tne ladies were hand
somely attired, the lunch was excellent, the
wines rich and a hearty "Happy New Year's"
extended to all. At Mrs. Ilerron's. 3Ö8
Douglass St. an elegant repast was set and
about 100 callers partook. In the evening
the grand center of attraction seem ed to be
the Vermont St. Church. The church had
been gaily decorated and arranged in differ
ent parlors for the occasion; each parlor be
ing presided over by a bevy of beautiful
young ladies. The parlors were remarkable
for the exquisite taste displaved in arrang
ing them, and the young ladies for their
sweet smiles and handsome costumes. Tak
ing everything into consideration the new
year had an auspicious opening; and it is
our earnest wish that at its end we may be
able to chronichi less of disaster and more of
prosperity than has made noted its predeces-.

Can you gxve any light on this subject?
A Reader.
We know nothing about the intention of
the framers of the new jury law, but we do
know that since this law has been in force,
colored iurors have been as scarce as white
elephanli. Perhaps the commissioners can
account for this. Ed. Leader.
Mammoth Claim Against the
Car Company.
A suit to recover certificates for 30S shares
of stock and $50,000 was filed Thursday by
Charles T. Robbins, administrator de bonis
non of the estite of IInry II. Cath-
erwood, deceased, against the Citizens' Street
Railway Company and Thomas L. Johnson.
The complaint sets forth that Catherwooil
died in possession of the above number of
shares of the Company's stock, of the par
value of $100 each. His death occurred in
August, 1872, and his widow, who was re
married to R. G. Phelps, was appointed
administratrix. In July, 1873 she was di
rected by the Circuit Court to sell the stock
at an appraised value, and accordingly it was
assigned to John Carlisle, who gave a prom
issory note running ten years from the date
of sale. Carlisle received the certificate of
transfer, and afterward assigned it to Tom
L. Johnson. The suit is based on the fact
that no report was made and the sale not
confirmed by the Court.
Incorrigible Females.
Mamie and Katie Burton, incorrigible
young girls, and Mollie Fowler, an inmate of
Mollje Harter' ranche, were arrested Thurs
day night near the 3oo, and placed in one of
female departmentsof the Central Station the
House. The Burton girls were somewhat
under the influence of liquor, and proceeded
to make thing) lively around Police Head
quarters. I inally they set fire to one of the
mattresses, which almost instantly caused a
Dig maze ana required the combined euorts
of the turnkey and one or two officers to ex

Burton girls In the duageon.
A Sane Man Overpowered and Taken
to the Asylum o3 a Lunatic.
Rather a bungling mistake was made
Thusrday by which a saie man was taken to
the Insane Asylum instead of the right man.
Last Friday a man named William Gabb,
whose borne is at No. 100 South East
street, wa3 declared ot unsound mind,
and papers for his admission to the Hospital
for such people were made out and filed.
An order for bis reniovai was received yes
terday, and Deputy Sheriffs Bradley and
Conway went after the man. Instead of
securing the right imlividual they arrested
one William Knapp, a German, who has
been doing work arourd the saloon of Chris
Scherter, corner of Delaware and South
streets. Being able only to speak broken
English, Knapp coull not explain to the
O.'licf rs that he was not the right man and
not crazy. Finally he became excited and
on resisting was overpowered and placed in
a carriage after bei ng handcuffed. Near
the Court House he jumped from the car
riage to the street, and ihebailiffs summoned
the assistance of several men to regain
possession of the supposed lunatic.
The man shouted lustily, and strongly re
sisted his captor?, who at last bound him
with ropes and in this manner took him to
the Asvlum. Upon arriving at the Institu
tion iho Deputies were astonished at
learning they had brought the wrong
man. and were toid to bring him
back. This they did, and liberated Knapp,
whose hands were badly bruised and other
injury sustained in his endavor to obtain
freedom. Knapp, aCer being brought back
to the city, created consternation by going
into a saloon to wash his "hands,
where he was recognized oj one or two of
tho-e present, who took to their heels from
fright. Liter he m met by a reporter,
whom he informed hat for seven weeks he
was nn inmate of the Asylum, being a suf
ferer from epileptic fits, and was released
on ine in oi uceeiuoer. A i present lie is
making an iti'jit to get into the Soldiers'
Home at Dayton, O . having been a soldier
of the late war. It is supposed tlie deputies
were mUtake i on atcouut of his recent re
lease from the Aylum, and the sim
naruyoi names, tvuapps experience was
rather biter and equally as stranee, but he
d'iesnot blame theUHcers, as he realizes they
were honestly mistaken. He was anxious.
however, that a correction be made. It is
needless to add that William Gabb. the
right man, was afterward arrested and er
ceived at the Asylum.

nr 9 lay by Coroner Maxwell, the first witness
oeing llliatu Darby, the "spotter," who
was on the street car before the accident.
His testimony did not differ from the state
ments made in ye.-terdav's Sentinel. He
said the driver attempted to stop the car by
putting on the brakes, but as it slid along

front of the train. After the accident he
said he examined the brake and found it in
working order. No other witnesses were ex

resenteu oy an attorney at the examination.
The testimony will be resumed this morn

The Murderer Are Arrested and Confess
One Drove the Hearse Containing the
Victims and Another Officiated as Pall
Cincinnati, Jan. 3. Advices from Ash
land, Ky., state that an arrest has been
made of persons believed to be the murder
ers of the Gibbons children, the arrest being
brought about by a confession of one of the
number. All live in Ashland, and two are
married men. They are in Catletsburg Jail.
Lynching is expected to-night.
Cincinnati, Jan. 3. The Commercial's
Ashland, Ky., special says: "The men ar
rested for the Gibbons murder are William
Neal, Ellis Craft and George Ellis, all white.
All were arrested last night and kept quietly
in the hotel in the custody of Constable
Hefiin. George Ellis confessed to the Con
stable. He says Craft and Neal awakened
him on the night of the murder and urged
him to go with them to Gibbons' house. He
went reluctantly. They entered by a win
dow, andrteal and Craft outraged the two
girls. Emma Thomas recognized Neal and
said she would tell her mother. Robeit,
the boy, then was about to give
the alarm, when Craft struck
him on the head with an ax, killing him
instantly. Craft then told Fannie her time
to die had come, and amid the piteous cries
of the girl for mercy he struck her on the
head, killing her instantly. Neal then killed
hnima Thomas in the same wav. Craft and
Neal at first denied Ellis' story, but Neal
confessed this afternoon, and both Ellis and
Neal waived examination. Craft will have
a nearing inursdaj'. iuiis and .seal are
married. Craft is single. They all were
present at the fire, and one drove the hearse
at the funeral and another was a pall bearer.
Crowds have been gathering all day at
Cattletsburg, and threats of lynching are
The Whittaker Court Martial
Washington, Jan. 3 it is said on
high authority that Judge Advocate Gen
eral .Swaim, in reviewing the Court
Martial proceedings in the case of Cadet
Whittaker, has raised the point that
the Court was illegally constituted because
it was ordered by President Hayes without
any request from the Department Com
mander, and that therefore all proceedings
were void. It is argued that the power of
the President to order an Army Court Mar
tial is not inherent in him as the Com-
mander-in Chief, but is conferred solely by
statutory authority contained in the seventy-
second article oi war, which reads as fol
lows :
Any general officer commanding the Army of
tne uiiuea states, a separate Army or sepaiate
Department, shall be competent to appoint a Gen
eral Court Martial either in time of peace or in
time of war. But, when any such Commander is
accusor under his command, the Court shall be
apiointed by the President, and its proceedings
ana sentence tuau ne sent directly to tne Secre
tary of War, by whom they stiall be laid before
tne 1'iesldent for his approval or orders in the
This article it is contended, confers no
power upon the President to convene an
Army Court Martial, except in a contin
gency specified. The question will probably
be referred to the Attorney General for his
opinion. The view above indicated is ap
parently strengthened by the fact that Con
gress some years ago expressly authorized
the President to convene Court Martinis in
.Navy cases without restriction.
