Dr. James Ward was also arrested and accused of being thu person who performed the criminal opera- I tlau. Ho asserted that be had not been In at tendance on thu woman since laatOctober,when I she was suffering front some disease, and ho had called on her to get bis pay for the services rendered when be was arrested. When be first I attended her she was an Inmate of a bouse of ill-fame on Polk street, und bo knew her by the 1 name of Minnie Watkins or Atkins. The ac | oust'd claimed to be n graduate of the California Medical Institute (Eclectic), ami said he bad practiced In Chicago for the past fourtccovcorH, hut was about to go out of practice.

Tlie Humane Society has tnken uo Iho case of Frank Ncls, the little violinist, who claims to have been abducted two years ago from Italy by the I’adroncCharlcs Dt Luca, and will prosecute the latter. Thu boy Informed the officers that the uadrono occupied rooms In the stouo-fnmt bulldlmr. No. 141 Adams street, oppo site the City-Hall, mid that be had eight persons lu all working for him. Officer Dudley, of (he Society, und Detectives Healey ami iloflmau visited tfiu place lost evening, and foaml, as the bov had stated,that Dl Luca had been living tltero with a woman not hU wife. ThiTonrotwo rooms, the second of which Is divided by a partition. The first Is a living room, and also contains a bed, and the oilier apartments contain beds In which the children are huddled. Contrary to expectation, the place was lulrly clean and tidy. A ludl-dozun Italians were silting about (he room, engaged lu consulting Dl Luca's lawyer, and presumably all of them are engaged In the padrone business. While there a party of three canib lu, having had a had day of It, and gathered In only lH cents. These the officers placed under arrest, mid at the station they gave the names of Joseph Chluchlola, aged years; MlKolas, his brother, aged 12 years; and Marie Antonia Feroandlna, aged U years. The boys claimed to he brothers, and •aid they come from Italy two years ago. They onlv boarded with Dl Luca, and paid him $5 a month each for their hoard, und all over that they had to themselves. The Ilttlo girl Indig nantly denied that Hho worked for any one but hcraeir, uml It was plainly to be seen that she bad been schooled thoroughly. Joe appears to bo partially idiotic, ami tncre li many a chuckle-headed boy of 14 years who ex hibits more outward signs of manhood and In tclligeucu thau he. tils brother, on the con trary, la bright, intelligent, uml cleanly, uml claims to like the life ho leads. 'Hie party car ried a barp, violin, and triangle. The arrest caused all the Italians in the build- liur to at once start out upon the streets pre sumably to warn the rust of tho Dl Luca und oliier bands what was going on, and the police, noticing tills, relinquished all hope of capturing any more of the strollers lust night. A 11,500 HUUOI.AUV This Is the season of the vear when the pros perous citizen is very apt to uwnken utan un reasonable hour In the night, throw open au upper window, and scream “ I’ollco ” and “ Murder " until every neighboring window con talus u nlght-capocd head, and then declaim to this shivering and uwc-strlekcu audience the astounding story uf how burglars have gone through bis borne fur all It was worth. And tills is exactly wtiat u gentleman named Meyers, residing at No. 477 West Adams street, did yes terday morning ut about -I o'clock. Tho house is a two-story aud basement stone front, stand ing a few feet back from the sidewalk, mid unprotected by any railing or curb wall. Kutrance was effected by tho burglara prying open a front basement window. After ransack ing the lower stories of tho house, and (hiding but little plunder to salt, they went to the upper Hour, ami, after procuring a ladder, climb ed (n over a transom toa room adjoining the bed chamber of Mr. Movers midwife. Mrs. Meyora saw them plainly, hut was so terrified us to be unable to speak. The baby was restless, aud Mr. Moyers cut up to give it a drink, and while lie was so engaged tlio burglars were biding in the shadows at ihe foot of the bed. It was nut un til alter thuv had helped themselves to clothing, diamond ami other Jewelry, uml a couple uf gold watches, valued In alfut $1,500, and wore preparing to leave the bouse, that Mrs. Meyers summoned snUlclont courage to raise mi alarm. After daylight Mr. Moyers' best pair of punts was found on a fence lu the rear of No. 4b3, directly opposite, showing that the burglars bad departed In Unit direction. There have been several other burglaries in the same neighborhood recently, and lost night the police were patrolling their beats in citizen's dress, hoping thereby to keep a closer truck of persons who might be seen about the district.

Thu rooms of thu Ap pellate Court wero used for the purpose, ami a military baud, uuder the direction of Fricdberg, was staliuued la Uic rotunda of Die hotel just outside. At 8 o'clock Gen. A. C. Chelhln, President of the Veteran Club, ushered In Geo. Logan, and the two ascended the platform, while thu mem : hers of (he Club and other citizens crowded about In front. Gem CUellalu, lor the veter ans, came forward and uisdo u lew remarks of welcome, in which he congratulated Gcu. Logan upon Hu* victory recently achieved by Him in the political contest, and expressed aatlslac tiou at Ida being fleeted to the United blaics (senate ss a member of the Veteran club. I lie soldiers know iliat so long as he was iu the Sen ate they would have a substantial Irleud there. His competitor was worthy of his best steel; he was a brave soldier and au able statesman, and It was a decided honor to ueo. Logau la being able to succeed huu fu the Senate. It was also an honor to the Association of which he was a member, and the members all shared in hla exultation. ... . , Hen. Logan responded In a speech not over six or seven minutes In length. lie said ho was very grateful for the honor that had been con ferred upon him by the membera of the Veteran Clubuim for the good feeling expressed by them In according him a public reception. He was proud of hu victory, and Nj thought he well might be, for he had a competitor to contend against that was In every wav worthy,—a brave soldier, a good stalesmsn, and a thorough gen tleman. Aa such ho bad known him to bo from personal knowledge, fie had nothing but good will towanls him. fie was proud to gain a con quest over so able a mao. While In the Senate ho should try to be • credit to those who placed him there, and he should always bo a friend to the soldier. He congratulated thorn upon hav ing secured the passage of the bill which gave back-pensions to the crippled and wounded soldiers. Again ho thanked them for their ex hibition of cowl fellowship, am! be hoped to meet them many limes In the future. Gen. Logan and Gen. Chctlaln then left the platform and took a position upon the main floor, white the members of the Club, to the number of about 400, together with fifty or sixty citizens, were formed In hue, and Marshals Jlealy and Carroll presented them individually, announcing their names as each came up to shake hands. Among Iho prominent citizens noticed out side of the members Of the Veteran Club were Judge Bailey ami Judge Murphy, of the Appel late Court, I’ostroastcr Palmer, CapU DoKudlo and Capt. Miller of the regular army, CapU Smallc, a visitor from the country, the Hon. A. M. Jones, uholrmatt of the Stale Republican Central Committee, and others. The reception proper did not last over an hour, and after It was over the members of the Veteran Club wont to their own rooms, where they bad a general Jollification, with President Chetlam and Gen. Logan sealed at the head of the table. The crowd struck up the old War-song, •* Sherman’s March to the Sea,” with a vigorous chorus In a lofty key. Then Frank Lumbard appeared Inside the door, amt ho was enthusiastically pushed, pulled, and lifted through and over the crowd until bo was stationed at the head of the room with his back against the wall. Amid the wild cat shouts from the audience be was compelled to give;** Old Shadv,” ” Sherman’s March,” ami other patriotic songs, the audience joining In the chorus. Speeches were called for from dif ferent members of the oroanlxatloo, and It was not until a late hour that thu crowd dispersed. SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS. TUB GUESS or ALU. STAUDBB, that there were from 8300,000 to $700,000 In re* bates on special assessments In thu City Trcas* ury, was somewhat wild, the sum to the credit of the fund Jan. 1 beta? SIBO,OOO. This amount, so It Is said, represents not only the rebates, but the money collected for Improve ments not yet completed, and, In some eases, not yet commenced. The Comp troller bus in , his hands warrants which call for sl,4lo.o2,—rebates about which those entitled to the money know nothing or they would drop In nnd pet it. Ho told a iKin umb reporter yesterday that It was Impossible to tell (ho having no way to find out) how mudh of the SIBO,OOO was due to property-owners who hod been ovcnuacsscd for Improvements, and how much was chargeable to improve ments for which the assessments had been, or wore bciiicr. collected. Assessment Clerk Jones was annealed to fur Information, and said ho could Hud out the exact amount of rebates bv going over his books, but that would toko blm three weeks. The amounts ranged from 10 cents to SSO. Ho thought about $50,000 would cover them. The accumulation of these rebates in tho Treasury Is doubtless duo to the fact that no notico of their existence Is given to property-owners. Previous to the lire notice was clvcn. Under the I system then in vogue the authorities \ waited until all tho monov was collected before paying a rebate, but since 1870 the contractors have been required to do the waiting, and two weeks after tae completion of an Improvement thu rebate, If noy, could be bad on application. Aid. Hlauber has dug out of the records the re bates due on Improvements In his ward (the Fifteenth), and he said last evening that he woulun’istop until he had brought them all totho surluco and had them published in the Council proceed.mrs (or the Information of those Inter ested. The publication In Tub Triiiunb, several mouths ago, that there was In the Treasury a largo amount of money due property-owners on rebates, resulted hi numerous culls on tho As sessment Clerk, and ho paid out several thou sand dollars to people who were Ignorant Mint they were entitled to anything. Over $50,0(X) still remains uncalled lor, ami as It will bo months, perhaps, before Aid. Stauber Is able to carry out his Intention, those who have been assessed for Improvements within ten years may lie acrcrablv surprised by paying a visit to the Clty-lUll. Some will doubtless get noth ing, others small sums, but nut a few amounts ranging from $lO to 150. THE RECOUNT. JCEHN STILL HOPES. The recount uf tho ballots In tbs Kern-lloff maim contest, contrary to expectation,continued yesterday, Mr. Korn having agreed to stem tho current mid pay tlio bills to the end. The counting commenced with the Eighth Ward, and Mr. Horn found comfort In seeing Mr. Hoffmann's vote slightly reduced and bis own corresoondlugly increased. Tho counting, so far as it went, gives Kern a gain uf ninety-seven votes,—that is, he has gained that many more votes than Hoffmann has. Following are the figures; ___ £ * I “ ft Eighth.

In n llttlo iccond-etorv room of the house In the rear of 1311 Otrdeo street Ihu shriveled re* mains of an infant 5 months old lie on a rougn board, frigid In death, and covered with a repulsive-looking calico rag. The omadated body and pinched features confirm the decision of the Coroner that the little sufferer died from debility caused by want of suflident nourish ment The father of the released sufferer Ilea In n cell In Muyameoalng Prison, where be has been alnco last Christmas, and whither be was sept (or attempting to steal a turkey, being driven to the net by tlse cries of his famishing frlfa and children for somothtug to eat. ills wife says U was bis first offense, and that she little dreamed of hie purpose when be loft bis home on Christmas morning to procure food to keuff them from starving. In rim room where the family live the bereaved mother aat last evening moaning for Ihu lots of her starved babr, while her children, (Ire la number, plainly showed In their wasted forms that they, too, bad felt tho pings of hunger. These were thinly cisd, one of them having simply o scant piece of calk-o pluned around him to cover his naked abouldors aud to protect him from chilling winds.

These articles, all that the distressed family possess, wore seized Yesterday In pay ment of fill dhe to Jacob Bchandein for two months' rent. The Constable came to the home to make the seizure on Monday, but while be was there tha child died, aud the officer, though used to scenes of suffering, turned twtv from the house without performing his duty: but the cruel task was performed yesterday.

De Kinder, a aht|>cbaiiJler aud grocer at (ilrard Point, who at once offered employment to the husband. The broken-hearted wile explained that her husband bad “been sent below,” and could out work for them. Mr. De Kinder, how ever, has promised to give Ihu husband work as soon as he is discharged from prison. Provision has been made fur the lutennent of the child to day lu Cathedral Cemetery.
