The trial of a new car-stwlec, an Ingonldus
contrivance Intended to lighten tho work of
horses in getting street-cars Trader way, took
place yesterday on tbo Clinton street track,
under tho supervision of Mr. Lake, tho
Huperintendent of the West Side Imca. Tbo
car was filled with people, end the dynamometer
was applied to test tho efficiency of the inven
tion. With tho car-starter off, the strain upon
the horses wus found to be twice as great as
with it on. Tho lost was deemed very saliafao
tory.
Elmer Washburn. Cblor of tho Secret Santee,
rcceiTcd lulornialum yasterfoy that Oporalho
Ancheai had prevented the oacapa of an oorae
torfeiiora from tho jail *1 Greensboro, N. C.
Tho prisoners had cut through the wooden door,
and wore sawing away at tho iron bare in the
windows,when Ancheel and the Jailer dißCOverod
them and slopped their proceeding*, The officer

one of the gang who visited the jail, land it in
supposed that he furnished tho saws and chisels
found in the cell.
About C o'clock laat evening, while Dr. O. N.
Davis and J. i\ Griffin, of No. 183 West Madison
etreet, were driving their horses, attached to
buggies, west through the Washington street
tnnuol, tho animal of tho latter named gentleman
became frightened and ran away. Dr.
Dam’ horse aleo became unmanageable and
started off on a run. Griffin's horse was killed
by a thill running into bis breast. Both gentle
men wore thrown cut and slightly hurt. The
Doctor’s horse smashed the bnggy, and ran
some distance before he was stopped. The oc
currcnco caused considerable commotion and
confusion among other horses and vehicles in
tho tunnel at the tun).
Some days ago Mr. Henry Floyd got on a
Madison-aired cor and offered a faro ticket
which had boon cut in two across the middle.
Hu offered both parts of the ticket, showing that
the rides for which it was good had not all becu
used up. Tho conductor refused to accept, on
the ground that tho rules of tho Company pro
hibited him from receiving mutilated tickets.
Floyd refused to pay any other fate, and
was forcibly ejected from the car and arrested
for disorderly conduct. The ease came up be
fore Justice Bcullv yesterday moraine, who de
cided that, as the whole of the ticket had been
presented, its mutilated condition could not in
validate it, the rules of the Company notwilh-
HiandiiiF. ITovd bad only assorted his legal
riirhiH, and bad been wrongfully ejected. Tho
latter was therefore discharged.
A floral ond strawberry festival was held at
Lower Fanvell Hall lust evening, under the
auspices of the Vonup Men’s Christian Associa
tion, tor tho benefit of that nobis band of ladies
who propone to furnish the hospitals of tho city
with ilowors during the summer. Tho lecture
room was tastatully ornamented, and tables la
den with flowers, kindly donated by the different
lludhtH of tho city, filled every available space.
In the reading-room tables wets spread,
and ice-cream, siiawbcrrioj, cake, tea, and cof
fee were supplied in abundance. Tho attendance
was quite large, aud, beside tho array of flowers
to attract the eye and tbo delicacies to appease
the appetite, music sud readings wore added for
tho geuoial aud more economic ploosure-sookor.
The receipts from sales and tickets more than
met expectations. Tbo festival will be repeated
Ibis afternoon.
Tho Chicago Board of Underwriters held a
mooting ytiaterdkv afternoon at their office, No.
127 Labailo street, and adopted a now achodule
of rates, which, how ever, they refuse to publish
fur fear that tho outuide companies might lake
advantage of it. About two month:* ago the
Board established a tariff by which
o, discrimination was made la tbo
rates on tbo height of tho buildings,
low buildings rating lower than high ones. This
action met with the opposition of the National
Board, which demanded a return to the old
schedule. This was, however, refused by the
Chicago Board, consequently a committee cou
eiHtiog of the most prominent members of tho
National Board visited this city to bring about a
peaceable settlement of tho difficulties, Tho
Uiimmltteo found that tho new tariff was
with the exception of a few minor points,
hotter than tho old one, aud so reported to tho
National Board, which thereupon approved the
action of tho Chicago Board except as to the
basis of rating business buildings. On the
abovo report action was had yesterday, and in
compliance with die request of die National
Board, tho basis of rates on business buildings
was changed, otherwise the tariff of April was
confirmed.
Tilt quo wabiunto.
Judge Booth yesterday morning disposed of
the demurrer filed a few days ago by Judge
Dickey to tho information' filed by the Citizens'
Association. He delivered his opinion overrul
ing the demurrer, ae follows:
1 have examined this cue to tbs extent of tbs flat-
Itwl time which has been at my disposal. Tbs ques
tion U limply whether the corporation of the City cf
Cbtcaao has acquired the right and franchises pro
vided for by tho act In regard to ths organization of
cillos of Isia, whether it hu token the proper alepa to
las Incorporated und«r that general act, sod whether It
now lawfully esercUea tboie franchisee. While 1 think
Ihu allegation* contained lu this Information
tiro sufficient to preieut that question fairly, 1 see no
ditQcuny whatever lu making up an issue, or leaues,
which shall present ibis caae lalriy for Ita decision
npon the nurds, so tbst a faithful Judgment maybe
obtained lu the whole matter under controversy. 1
have come to (his conclusion upon the authority of the
cases cited, and therefore think that tbs demurrer
should be overruled, aud It la so ordered.
Judge Dickey was given a week ia which to
file his answer.
TUB METCALF CASE.
Tho case of 11. 13. Metcalf, charged with
fotging the name of a Dopuly-BberiiT to the
return upon a summons, continued from Mon
day, was disposed of yesterday morning in the
Criminal Court. The case was submitted with
out argument.
Judge Uooth addressed the jury in aeerol-ln
alroctivo vein, lie woe satisfied from the evi
dence that there was come reason to doubt tho
accused's guilt, yet thero were circumstances
which pointed to the accused as the offender,
lie considered the weight of evidence in favor
of the defendants innocence, yet it was con
flicting. The handwriting of Metcalf had been
sworn to, and witnesses had tostilled that be
aigned the forced return. On tho other band,
quite a number had testified that bo did not
write the matter in question, and, beside, that
be was of unexceptionable character.
State's Attorney Heed interposed that It was
Tory natural for a forger to disguise bis band.
Judge Booth responded that Metcalf had de
nied having anything to do with the forgery,
and that the evidence seemed to him to Justify
bis acquittal.
The jury subsequently retired, end after being
absent a short time rotumed a verdict of not
guilty.
POLICY.
HO roMCE ISTEUVKBEXOS TUT.
Notwithstanding (be discovery, mode by Tn
TauiCKß of their proceedings and place of busi
ness, tbe lottery men are still plying (heir
knavish trade at (he old stand, contldeutly rely
ing in tbe supiuoness of the authorities. From
all outward appearances it would seem as If the
exposure had not disconcerted (hem in tbe
least, and Mr. E. Dodd swaggers in and out of
his “ real estate " office in Cobb's Building with
a jaunty and self-assured air as If be had mads
things all right with the police, and was not to
be scared by newspaper notoriety. Yesterday
tui usual tuuwiuos
at is rod 8 o'clock took place, and agents a*d
runners got tb»u usual supply oX tickets, lbs
crowd that frequent* bit office varies little in Ua
eompoeitiwti from day to day. eud roar bo seen
filing Id and out of Room No. 23 of Cobb • Build
in* No. 191 Dearborn street, any day about tho
time when the drawing! take place. There are
a few nfiteb-looknig swells, a few negtota, a
number of I'oaforiah-lookiug men of middle ago,
and a numb or of youths, their countonaocca ex*
pmwing preoociona maturity of knarlahneos.
The police bare not a« vet Indicated any inten
tion cvf intor/eriog with the business, and from
present appo arancea it wonld seem that Mr. E.
Dodd audhia partners do not anticipate any dis
turbance of their oporallooa from tho publicity
given t n them . but rather regard that aa bo much
free a.lrerli»ament. The long poiiodoftime
during which they hare successfully prosecuted
their vie ioua u*ffichas doubtless begotten strong
ooufldoo ce in L'roir security agalust Justice.
A ltd. MANURED MORTON,
residing nt CIO .‘donth Bmterfleld street, figures
as Dodd's clerk, but is probably a partner io the
concern, a s thor are old associates. In 1469
Dodd and . Motto, u figured In the directory aa bro
kers ; in 11'72 Dc dd Is recorded In tbe directory
as a broker. Mori on’s name not appearing at all.
In 1873 Dod d com cs out in tire real estate line,
Morion anp< taring In the directory, no occupa
tion being given. In 1874 Morton also appears
an a real-estate ammt, and this year as Dodd's
clerk. Thoy are both, therefore, old
associates In the business, ami have
boon carrying l it on .for a long time together in
this city. The office in Cobb's Building on
Dearborn street over which Dodd presides is the
contra! agency Id Chicago, but there are
A HDMUU n op Allots
spattered all ovwr the ft ty that aleo carry on tbe
business, the majority of them receiving (heir
supplies from Dodd's. .Among those is one iu
Hoorn 14 of the Morrison Building, northeast cor
ner of Clark and Madison streets, occupied by
cue Charles B. Amos, ostensibly a broker, but
it is stated that it is nm •principally by Morton
lihaiseif. There is another lottery den in Room
H of tho Kentucky Block, northeast corner of
Cl irk aud Adams. This Is nm by a negro,
nlioM came tbo reporter was not
able to obtain. A negro named
J ackaon, who has bis headquarters iu Room 67 of
t'as Paoifie Block, southeast comer of Clark and
\ aoßtfreu streets, is an old hand at tbe business,
having been a well-known operator before the
li re. His face la a familiar one io tho business
section of tbe city, aud. being of polite address.
}ue gels e larger patronage among white people
uhan any other man of color io tho business. A
•man named Hamilton ruos a shop over a barber
shop at No. 108 Harrison street. At SCO State
street a piece is run by a mao named Thomas.
There is one at No. 393 South Clark street, kept
by a Gorman, and it is stated that there is oao
also at No. 828 State street. Sir. C. J. Hunt, occu
; pying Room 13 of tho Fuller Block, opposite Tun
Tribune office, colls himself a broker, but is an
operator in lottery-tickets. These are but a few
of the many. There aro regular nests of thorn
on tbs West Side, and somo on the Nonh_ Side,
the policy-shops especially doing a flourishing
business, although tho tele of thojegular lottory
iickots is also very large. Fortune's wheel turns
regularly twice adav, and skins tbe pockets of
tho foolish for tbo profit of tho wily lottery
dealer. What with the bunko men. the gam
blers, aud tbo lottery-dealers, the fleecing of the
gulls and fools scores to bo one of tho largoat
industries of our city, engaging the services of
hundreds of people.
OBITUARY,
cnam-Es m. pair.
There are hosts of people in this city to whom
the announcement of tho death of Charles M.
Fair wilt cause much surprise and sorrow. He
died suddenly at the bouse of his mother. Ho.
170 Twenty-fifth street, laat evening at 7 o’clock.
But a few days ago be was apparently in tho
best of health. Ho attended to his busineee as
usual laat Saturday, and last Sunday afternoon
visited at the residence of an intimate friend
and neighbor. In the evening he was seized
with a sudden illness which completely pros
trated him, and lost evening he died, aa stated,
of paralysis of tho heart. Bo brief wsa his ill
ness that a great many of his friends did not
know that ho was unwell, and lus.doath will
come to them with great suddenness,*
Mr. Fair had a very large circle of friends who
will find it difficult to loalizo that tbo gonial,
whole-souled •• Charley ”is dead. Ho had been
a resident of this city for many years, and,
though young.—being at (ho time of his death
but 27 years old,—filled a very responsible posi
tion in the wboloaala Louse of Field, Loiter &
Co., with whoso establishment be bad been con
nected since it was started. Mr. Fair was a gen
tleman well known in Chicago social circles, in
which bo was a great favorite. Ho was highly
esteemed by all wholcoalo men. Ho was of a
social, gonial nature,which attracted to him many
friends, and his sterling qualities of character
made him universally respected. Uls funeral
will take place from hie mother’s resldcnoe to
morrow.
LOCAL LETTERS.
ncronifEi) episcopal cuuocn.
To tho Editor of Tho Chicago Triburu ;
Cuicaoo, May 21.—Your correspondent* "Con
grogattonalist," In your paper of Sunday morn
ing last, makes tho following statement. Speak
ing of the Council of tho Boforracd Episcopal
Church, recently in session in this city, bo Bays :
'• The Protestant Episcopal Church was repre
sented by one man, the Her. Charles B. Stout, of
Chicago"; and again, “ Mr. Stout alone sanc
tioned tholr counsels by hie presence.* Ho does
mo too much honor. , Certainly three of the
Episcopal clergy of tho city wore there before
myself, viz.: the Bov. W. 11. Smytbo, of tho
Bishop Wbitehouae Memorial Chnrcb ; tho Bov.
Dr. Powers, of St. John's, and the Bov. L. N.
Freeman.
1 wae present only on one occasion, Friday
afternoon the Hth hist., and then hut for an
hour and a half. It is true I "exhibited groat
interest In all that wan said and done"—rather
strongly put however; but it la a mistake when
the writer says, I "only declined a public intro
duction in consequence of an indisposition which
precluded bis (my) making ao oddroos." Allow
me to say, I went thcro for no Bitch pmposo ns
a public Introduction would imply. 1 have al
ways bad an instinctive desire to avoid all such
notoriety, as those who boat know me will
readily believe. Theca may have boon
other of the clergy than thoeo named who
wore present during tuo session of
tho Council. One ouch certainly expressed
to me hi* intention of visiting the Council for
the purpose of bearing what was said, and hoped
other* would go at the warn* time.
And now 1 will state Just bore that one cause
for tho interest 1 felt was this : When 1 entered
tbo church the discussion was in progress on
the adoption of the report on tbo Articles of Ito
llgion. To my surprise, I learned from remarks
made by several speakers that there was a dis
position manifest to eliminate from tho articles
—to use the Ber. Dr. Nicholson's language—
•* precious doctrines" or •• truths" respecting
the “perfect manhood of our Lord Jesus
Christ. I had supposed that the Thirty-nine
Articles of tho Church of England, and of
the Protestant Episcopal Church in the
United States, had heed received by
the Protestant Evangelical Churches of all
names since the Deformation, aud now to And
the lleformod Episcopal Church, seriously de
bating the question of their auscriptural char
acter m some essential particular was indeed a
surprise. 1 foit that these brethren were in
danger of emasculating the doctrines of Holy
Bcnpture. The effect would ha to repel from
them, the sympathies and confidence of many
who wished them well. X mentioned this to one
or moro persons daring the discussion, and ex
pressed the opinion that the fewer changes they
made in the X’rayer-Book ihe bettor, and that
none should bo made unless clearly warranted
by Holy Scripture,
I listened with pain to much of this discus
sion. and am free to say that I left, after the ad-
lournrasot, with a more unfavorable opinion of
the wisdom of these gentlemen in thus putting
the pruning-knife to great truths of tho Gospel
of out Lord Jesus Christ. Manr of these
respected brethren were my personal friends for
long years of Intimacy, with whom it hod been
my privilege often to take sweet counsel. They
are still mv friends, I doubt not. It would pain
me to think otherwise. But it does not follow
that I most approve all that they say and do. 1
have no harsh or unkind words for those who
have felt it their duty to leave the grand old
Church of our fathers, la which I have minis
tered forty yean, aud In whose communion I
trust 1 may die, when the lime of my departure
is at hand.
One other impression I must be permitted here
to correct. It has been publicly stated, that the
Iter. Dr. Bishop, tho former oetsemed llorior of
Ht. John's Church, oad he lived would have been
in this movement. 1 entirely dissent from this
opinion. What might hare happened had ue
lived and remained in this city to the present
time 1 cannot tell. But Dr. Bishop’s ministry,
hod be returned olive from Europe (now nearly
seven years since his death) would have boon in
Ohio. He bad previous to his leaving homo, ac
cepted the charge of Bt. John's Church, Oincin
nasi. There he doubtless would have remained,
and enjoyed all the liberty be desired iu the
cervices of the Church. 1 surely ought to Kuo*
something of his real views, as he was a mem
ber of my family. Ue favored the omission of

Had ho been alive, be would very likely hare
signed the very respectful petition sent up to
tho last General Conventions of our Church for

am bapny to bat, more than 500 others of the
olorcy of tho Episcopal Church, including the
“ nine Bishops f * who made the effort several
years ngo to have this privilege granted. Be
voml this it is mere conjecture to bring Dr.
Bishop np as likely to bo one iu this new
organization of a Reformed Episcopal Church,
1 would not advise Dr. Bishop's old parishioner*
and friends to ho influenced by any such suppo
sition. His memory is precious to many in tula
city, and tho fruit of bis twelve years of labor
here is not without results to this day. Ills old
friends will beat follow hie teachings by bolding

surplus ministers.
3b (fit Editor tf Thu Chicago Tribune ,
Chicago, May 25.—1 was struck by a ngges
tloo in an editorial in last Sunday’s Tribune od
tho largo surplus sapply of ministers, to tbe ef
fect tbat good mou of ability are at present spe
cially needed, for tbe good of tho country. In all
tbo walks of business and professional life, and
urging all such to come forward. The idea
seemed to bo that, if they did to, they would
only bo too gladly welcomed and assured of suc
cess. 1 doubt this. Just now, youog men of
good principles, character, aud deportment ore
apt to be overlooked or kept In tbo background.
Tbe ideal good young man—tbe Bayard tans
j>eur cl sans rrprochc —i« supposed to bo brave,
gculto, truthful, kind-boartod, unselfish, modoat,
unassuming, and retiring. Aro such qualities,
though united to good education and abilities,
best lilted to help a young man of tbs present
day to push bis way ia tbo world ? Most people
would at once say no. On the contrary, the
converse qualities of brazen ebook, unblushing
assurance, thorough selfishness, mercenary mo
tives, questionable memory, and truthfulness
whore convenient, etc., though with poor educa
tion and ability, ora popularly suppose! to ba
tbo “ open sesame ** to success in life. Tbs
standard by which men oro judged, is at present
apparently very low. But there is the other al
ternative of adopting tho doctrine of tbo evolu
tionist ; and, holding that tbs lari-mentioned
qualities, being those beet fitted to promote
survival and snocoss in the world, and in reality
tho really good, while the others, being
practically inferior in tbe ‘ struggle for
existence, are In reality the bad. The
real solution of the difficulty is probably that
perbape tbo groat aim of life now is, in this
country, at least, to make money; while in
former days, aad even now in a few other coun
tries, if a man make hie reputation aa post, au
thor, General, artiet.'or, even simply as an up
right, gooa man. hta li/o was, or is, considered a
success. apart from riches or poverty. But not
so in Chicago, at present. Who asks whether
Ciiiclnnatue was rich or poor ? Who wonld corn-
pare his character with that of Crcssn*. or
Mldaa ? The subject is interesting, and I should
like to see it handled by Tub Tridune.
TUOUAS COUBTENAT.
A VIGILANCE COMMITTEE.
To th« Editor of TU Chicatr* Triburu:
Cuicago, May 25.—1 think “Suburban,"
writing in this morning’s Tribune, lua struck
tho keynote in the matter of the confidence men
who now ewarm on our streets. Another game
of tho same kind was attempted tble morning, on
Slate, near Monroe. Isn’t it time that decent
citizens should arouse and do something to re
lievo the city of this burning shame and dis
grace ? No help can bo bad from those wboee
business it is to enforce the laws and rid the city
of these poste. A few days ago an old citizen,
Dr. Gibbs, was robbed ou a street-car. Tho
thief was caught, and what was the result?
Tbs thief was lot out ou ball of SSOO, furnished
by tho lawyer who appears almost invariably for
the defense when any of tho McDonald crowd of
thieves are arrested. The ball was afterwards
reduced to S2OO. Of course the thief was non
out when wanted. The Jnstico when remonstrated
with for reducing his bail said that a son of Dr.
Gibbs was present and consented, Dees the
concent of tho witness give tbs Justice authority
to compound a felony, which was what ho very
well know he wae doing when he reduced the
ball? Lot us wake up and clear tbo city of
tnoso scoundrels before our trade ie all diverted
to other cities where honest men stand a bettor
show. llonboe.

the slide* in the doors aud carefully inspected
them. The visits were made by one officer m
each Instance, while others waited outside. No

threats used to obtain outranco. The gamblers
were all on the alert, and had their negroes
carefully posted and Instructed lo lot
no one in unless they know him.

LAKB VOSW.
A special meeting of tbo Town Hoard was held
Monday night for tho diecoeeion of tba water
supply. Tboro was a fair attendance of inter*
cited dtizooß, all anxious to have tho matter de
cided at once. A petition eigood by IC3 residents
and property-owners, asking tbo Hoard to tako
prompt action in was presented and
laid over.
An additional report of tbe Water Committee
was read. They etatod that It was not neeoasary
to snbmit tbe matter to a vote of tbe people, »a
tbe Board bad full power to act in tba promises.
Hucb an expression of tbo pouular feeling, how
ever, might bo expedient. A statement of tbe
coat of pipe of various dimensions was given,
it being cheaper now than ever before. About
12 miloe of it would bo needed, probably ait fol*
lows: Kmllo of lC*incb from pumping-works
south to Bulzor avenue; 1 mile of 8-lncb on
Buliot avenue west to llaveuswood; 3# miiee
of 12-Incb ou HaUted street south to Wright
wood; miles of 8-incb on Grace street to
Sheffield aveone, and thence south to Wrightwood
avenue; XK miles B-lncb on dummy road south to
Wrigbtwood ; y. mile on Wrigbtwood from dum
my road to Sheffield avenue. Tbo remaining 7
miles would bo of 4-lnch pipe distributed among
tbe several localities. Tbe expense would bo
about as follows: Engine, machinery, etc.,
$37,000 ; pipes. $70,000 ; hydrants, cribwork,
etc., $20,000 ; making a total of $127,000; $35,-
000 of this could be mot by special assessment,
sod tbo Committee recommended that bonds bo
issued for the remainder os soon os possible.
The rate of assessment per front foot would bo
about 40 cents, not more than for sidewalks.
Tbo expense of running tbo works would bo
about SO,OOO per anuum. Tbs Committee took
soundings off the foot of .Sulzer avenue, and
found ftom 8 to 10 feet of water at a distance of
from 400 to 800 feet from shore. They would ad
yet recommend no particular system, tbe Holly
or otherwise, Tbe report wu received and pot
ou file.
Ur. Clark suggested that the Hoard have print*
ed for circulation 1,000 copied of the report. A
resolution wan paised to this effect for 1,500
copies.
Mr. B. B. Chase favored spreading tbo news.
Every one bo saw was in the notion. Ur. Bhol*
don, vbo ropreaouted William It. Ogden, aud
paid for him ouo-touih of Lake View taxes, was
enthusiastic in his support, aud the uon-roeidont
property-owners aeemod all desirous of the Im
provement. Ho suggested that public meetings
bo held for tbs diaousslon of the plans.
Mr. Weckler said Ur. Crolgcr, tbo engineer of
the city works, bad informed bim that Lake
View might bo supplied from tbo city if she
would pay for the third engine which was to bo
erected, lie wouldguarantoo plenty of water.
Mr. Chase said that any arrangement entered
into with the city must be by some permanent
ooutract, winch he thought the city would Dover
consent to. . , .
Mr. Clark had talked with Coromisalonera
Priodiviile and Thompson on that subject. They
,bad eald they could furnish the lower end of the
Town with water after this year, when their in
land pumping works would be going and relieve
the strain on the eboro works. He would Uke to
have a committee to cooferwilh the Board of
public Worse.
Mr. Foster doubted the possibility of forcing
water from insert? to the northern portion n

was In eaea of Are. If the city furnished water,
Lake View would be obliged to have engines at
groat coot. If the town had her own works, with
tbo Holly system, tbo necessary pressure would
be furnished at all times for use in flros.
Mr. Clark agreed that it was all a matter of
Inquiry as yet, and therefore he thought it best
to inquire everywhere. It would do no barm.
The Water Committee were instructed to con
sult with the Board of Public Works, and toe
what inducements they would offer.
The Board thou adjourned to Monday, June 7.

Priest.
tiotlm Journal, Stay 33.
There is now on the trial list of the Superior
Court a case which involves the rights of Homan
Catholic priests to discipline members of their
parish by publicly denouncing them. The eass
is one of slander, In which the plaintiff, Robert
0. Fanning, sues James McQlow, a Catholic
priest of Chelsea, for alleged slanderoua lan
guage. Damages are laid at $2,000, and some
very interesting points will bo raised at the trial.
The declaration of the plaintiff fully explains bis
grievances, as follows:
And lbs plaintiff says that said defendant Is a clergy
man of the Homan Catholic Church, and settled over a
pariah in Chelsea, and the aald plaintiff is one of lbs
parishioners, and is and bos been an atUndant and
worshiper lo the church of said parish.
And the ptalullff says that la the year 1873 Im was
lawfully married to Catherine Murphy,of said Chelsea,
by a duly authorized magistrate, according to law.
And the plaintiff says that ho and his sold wife had
always Uvod a chaste and upright life, and bore a good
name among their neighbors and la said church and
parish, hut they incurred the displeasure and hostility
of said defendant by reason of said marriage.
And the plaintiff says that on or about the oth of
November, A. D., 1873, Ibe defendant in said church
on the Sabbath day, and in the presence of a large con
gregatlon, publicly, falsely, and maliciously accuuod
the plaintiff of ths crime of fornication, by words
spoken of the plaintiff, as follows: “ There have been
parties that have gone and got married out of the
Church, and those parties are living in mortal sin. I
will call their tmm&i to yon,—Robert O. Tanning. Jr.,
aud Catherine Murphy,”—oud after calling sundry
other names the said defendant said: "Those parlies
(moaning said plaintiff among others) must coiuo be
fore the altar and give public satisfaction,”
Ami the plaintiff save that on the Aid of Mid No
vember, In said church, the defendant publicly, false*
ly, and maliciously accused the plaintiff of tbe crime
of fornication by words spoken of the plaintiff sub*
atauUally as follows: “ John Fanning, or Hubert, or
wbataTerbis name la, bas gone to live with that
woman (meaning tho lawful wife of said plaintiff), is
living lu sin, and 1 will call their nomas every Sunday
uullt they come before the altar and giro public satis
faction.” “ These parties will be coming to me by
and by with tholr bastards for me to obriatoo."
And tbe plalutlff snys that on or about tbe 30th day
of August, A. D. 1871, the defendant, in said church,
and lu the presence of the congregation there assem
bled, publicly, falsely, and maliciously accused (ho
plaintiff by wortla spoken of tbe plaintiff, subetantlslly
as follows : •' I have beard that a couple have gone
and got married out of tbe pariah, and if they do not
como and aee me before next Sunday, I will call their
names from tbe altar. I thought the scandal of a year
ago was enough to learn them a leasou ; they will run
to neighboring prieets with a Utt in their mouths, or
like Garland’! son and Tanning (meaning by Fanning
this plaintiff), who went to a sweep of tbo town down
at tbe square, who ere unlawfully married and living
In aln, and they cannot approach the rails of this
altar until they have given public satlafactiou.' 1
Theanxwor of tbe defendant U as follows:
And now comes the defendant and for answer says
that bs denies each and every allegation in tbe plain*
tiff's writ and declaration contained.
And the defendant further says that If bo spoke (bo
words sa alleged by tbe plaintiff in bie declaration to
have been spoken by the defendant of (he plaintiff
that at the times said words were eo spoksu by the do.
fendant, he wu a priest of tbe Homan Catholic
Church, and at (be times aforesaid hold tbe office of
pariah priest of Bold Chelsea; that plalnUff and bis
wife were members of laid pariah and of said church
at said times, and worshiped at said times in the
church building belonging to said parish in sold Chel
sea, and that the defendant at said times was* officiat
ing and acting la bis capacity and office ae pastor and
Kriib priori of aald church and pariah, and the mem
rs thereof, and that aald worda wore epokou by him,
tho defendant, in bis capacity and by virtue of bla au
thority aa pastor, pariah priest, and spiritual director
of tbo plalutlff; that tbe defendant bad a full spiritual
and ecclesiastical authority ever esid plaintiff and bie
wife at said times to disapprove, condemn, and censure
prtvaiety sod publicly the plaintiff sad bis wife for
• any violation of tbo teachings, doctrines, laws, rules,
and discipline of aald Church, and had the full ecclesi
astical and spiritual guidance, care, direction, ami
teaching of aald plaintiff and hu wife: that said
words alleged In tbo ptalntlirs declaration to have
been spoken by (he defendant, if they were epokea by
him, were in information, evidence, and belief on the
defendant’s part that (bs plaintiff and bis wife bad vio
lated tba doctrines, laws, rules, teachings, and usagea
of the Homan Catholic Church by being married out
