THE FASHIONS.
SPRING WOOLENS.
Huroer's Bazar,
The new woolens have what is called by mer
chants the ’* lianncl finish.” meaning a woolly
surface, without lustre, and very soft. These
come in plain cdlors or in narrow stripes of two
tones of a color, or else in the loose basket
weaving. The colors are moss, beige brown,
gray, and black. A new camel’s hair fabric is
shown without twills and with flannel finish;
it is of lighter weight than any before shown,
and is as thin as bunting or as grenadine; it is
most largely imported in beige brown and black.
The gray woolens look prettiest in odd armuro
designs, or in stripes a fourth of in inch wide
of two clear shades of a French gray. The
standard de bege is imported in gray, olive,
moss, beige, and navy-blue. Low-priced wool
en mixtures for the million have tiny thread
stripes and checks, or zigzag effects of two
shades, such as cream with brown, or else in
contrast, as gray with red. Checked effects are
given in the weaving rather than in the color
ing; stripes will be preferred to ebccks, or at
least they have been more largely imported.
Few plaids are shown, but there are many cross
barred patterns.
COTTON SATTEEKS, ETC.
The lustre of satin is so popular at present
that it has been (riven to cotton goods, and the
novelty for spring wash-dresses will be satteens,
finely twilled, yet soft and flexible, and with a
genuine doss like the lustre of satin. Whether
this satin finish will survive washing remains to
he seen, out the pretty patters are said to be
fast; they are small flowers in exquisite colors,
beautifully grouped, as if designed by artists.
Tbe'grounds are sky-blue, cream, French grav,
brown, or white, and there are striped grounds
of two contrasting colors—rose with blue, gray
with pink, cream with blue. These are to form
gay Pompadour over-dress with striped vests
and plain-colored skirts. Among the best sat
teens are stripes of two shades of pray or of
ecru, with a border of dark cardinal red strewn
with palm leaves.
French and English calicoes, lawns, and or
gandies have small figures and South Kensing
ton designs of flowers, vines, or branches on
pale-blue, gray, drab, or cream grounds. Others
have stripes of two colors on white, or small
palm-leaves, rose-buds, or ragged-sailors, on
dark olive, old gold, or blue ground, with dado
like borders. The flowers or vines are massed
closely together for the border, and strewn
about in artistic disorder over the breadth of the
goods. The borders are two and a half or three
inches wide, and so many yards of bordering are
required to trim a dress that a '‘double border ”
is furnished by having a stripe of it down each
selvedge, instead of only on one selvedge, as
was formerly done. Jibe lawns will cost from
25 cents to 40 cents a yard. Calicoes of solid
colors, warranted to wash, are supplied in pale
or dark blue, Turkey red, brown, and dark
green, to complete costumes that are partly
figured and partly striped.
The polka-dotted percales of soft finish are
the most “Freuchy’’-looking fabrics, and are
readily mistaken for foulards; these arc pro
vided with a border of six narrow stripes along
the selvedge. There are cool cream-colored
grounds dotted with cardinal red, brown, or
blue, with striped borders the color of the dots;
and there are dark olive, blue, or green grounds
with white dots and stripes. Sometimes there
are squares made up of dots, or a bar of color,
on the white or cream ground, or else the
ground is dark and the figures light, while the
borders have palms and arabesques, and other
Eastern figures.
Linens for shirtings and for waists for girls
and boys have white grounds with small horse
shoes of two colors, or linked circles, zigzag
figures, bars, and dashes.
HOW TO MAKE SPRING DRESSES.
The first new dresses shown Tor spring have
basques and coats with vests, overskirts, and
lower skirts that cling to the figure in front
and on the sides, and are very simply trimmed
around the bottom with one or two pleated
flounces. They are made of the satteens and
lawns just described, with borders, and are very
fancifully made witn two or three different
kinds of goodsjn a single dress. For instance,
a gay little dress of cotton sattcen has a demi
trained skirt of sky blue, with a long aprou
overskirt of the same, much wrinkled across the
front, and edged at the bottom with a broad
band of blue and white striped sattcen,—the
stripes perpendicular instead of bias, —and be
low this is gathered white Russian lace. The
vest is of the striped stuff, and so much of it
is visible that it really becomes the basque
of the suit; a jabot of lace U down the whole
front of the vest. Above all this is a tiny coat
of cream and blue and red flowered sattcen,
sloped away from the top of the darts very far
on the sides. Every detail of an elaborate’cos
tume is carried out in these simple fabrics. The
coat is piped with blue, and has a striped ro
vers coliar, and down the back of the overskirt
are draperies made of the flowered and striped
stuffs.
A simpler percale ■ dress has a short, round
skirt of solid green percale, with a pleated
flounce, on which is sewed a border in white fig
ures. The curtain overskirt is figured and
trimmed with a border. The waist is a basque
of the plain green, with a vest and sleeves of
the figured percale; a border edges the vest,
and the figured sleeves have pointed cufe of the
plain goods, with a border below that passes
around the wrists. Still another percale of
plain brown with some figured percale has a
double-breasted basque of the figured goods,
with an extra polka basque attached below the
waist line,—a pretty and most becoming fashion.
The overskirt Is long and round, and the plain
short round skirt has two flounces laid in large
shallow pleats.
NOTES.
Kew York Past.
Fancy camel’s hair will be worn for spring
suits in light tints thickly covered with differ
ent designs.
One of the most beautiful dresses recently
seen in Europe was of rose-leaf satin with a
tunic of English point lace draped across the
front with garlands of “ oeillets ” and heather.
Light summer silks, which will be much em
ployed for street suits, have chinchilla stripes,
or narrow clouded chine stripes set close to
gether on brown, cardinal, garnet, blue, aud
other colored grounds.
The Prince of Wales has set the fashion in
Paris of wearing a large pin or medallion in the
front of the dress shirt for fail dress. The
French fashion critics arc begging for a return
to the old fashion of wearing three buttons.
White cravats are “a !a Camargo; they are of
white India mull or Bishon’s lawn, the edges
plaited with falls of old lace or Breton lace;
they are tied and worn very large. When knot
ted and allowed to Pang down they are called
“Stciukcrques,” from a fashion of the same
date.
Dresses for dancing are made extremely short
in front; some reforms have also taken place
since the beginning of the winter in the matter
of trains; they are very inconvenient tor
dancers, and are therefore much curtailed, and
in some instances done away with altogether,
and a “Directoire ” dress is the result;
Embroideries of fine jet are still very much
used; long vests reaching to the knees glisten
with fine cut-beads in closely-worked designs;
Mme. Nilsson recently appeared with a black
dress thickly covered with blue jet, the sleeves
of tulle also embroidered to match. Many
black dresses for evemugs of silk or velvet have
tulle sleeves covered with embroidery of line
jet beads.
Some of the new fans arc of transparent
gauze or crepe; on this is painted a female figure
wrapped in draperies, which seems to be stand
ing in the midst of a snow-storm. The snow
flakes are made of fine particles of ostrich
feathers or marabot, which arc put on between
the two thicknesses of the gauze. The sticks
are of mother-of-pearl carved to represent frost
work.
Bouquets for the evening of real or artificial
flowers are much worn on the left shoulder if
the dress is low; if ;t is high they are worn on
the left side of the waist at the belt. Square
nock dresses have a bouquet on the right side
very high upf and with a low square dress with
short sleeves two Utile curled ostrich tips are
often worn in place of a bouquet, with a jewel
ed pin to fasten them on.
The little red silk handkerchief turbans which
are now fashionably jounieviug around the
world, were first started in Baris last spring, the
Princess of Wales havingappeared in one' at a
Paris fete; they were immediately adopted in
Paris. This laar is said to have perfect taste,
and she now sets the fashions for both Lon
don and Paris, In the absence of any high au
thority iu Paris, such as the Empress Eugenie
used to be. • *-
There is *an increasing tendency toward the
fashion of,wearing small hoop-skirts; they are
almost 'imperceptible, but they are worn by
ladies who wish to keep the short walking-dresses
from touching the feet. In Paris there is a regu
lar adoption of tournnres, which are worn to
give breadth to the back of the dress and to sud-
port the habit-backs of coats, and they also form
an important part of the support and under
decoration of a train, which requires a “ bamy
euse ” and flounces of some dimensions to
make it take the right shape.
Clinering dresses slowly hut surelv
out of fashion; tied-back dresses have entirely
become things of the past. They have recently
earned a bad name from the fact that investiga
tion has proved that many of the women
drowned at the wreck of the Princess Alice owed
their titter inability to help themselves, or to
sustain themselves when help was given them,
to the fact of their beine incumbered with lie
tight-clinging skirts, which held them down.
SOCIETY TOPICS.
“Handsome as a Caucasian girl,” is the
highest tribute which a Turk can pay to female
loveliness.
White cashmere, of the exquisite cream shade,
combined with faille, is much used in evening
dresses for young ladies.
A stylish couple East had go many friends
that they could not make their wedding-cake
go round, so they had it photographed and
sent pictures of it to all their frieuds; which
was considered anything but tasty.
Ladies desirous of purchasing a first-class up

IRISH COLONIZATION.
A National Colonization Conference has been
called by St. Patrick’s Society of Chicago to
assemble in the Grand Pacific Hotel, this city,
at 12 o’clock noon St. Patrick’s Day. The call
receives the hearty concurrence and approbation
of the leading organizations devoted to the in
terests of .Irish colonization, several of the
prominent Catholic Bishops of the West; the
Rev. Theo Ambrose Butler, President of the
National Board of Colonization; Mr. Dillon
O’Brien, and others prominently identified with
the cause. The objects of the 'conference are,
briefly, to advise as to the best and most elli
cient means to promote and encourage immi
gration to the lands in localities which will as
sure nr Irish settlers religious and educational
advantages among those of their own laith and
kindred, and at the same time an ample
reward for their toil and industry;
to organize central bureaus or bUiees in
the principal cities for the purpose of furnishing
information to immigrants and colonists, guid
ing and assisting them to their destination, pro
tecting them from imposition, and guarding
them against the wiles of sharpers and unscru
pulous land-speculators; to form, it possible, a
national association to systematize and direct
Catholic immigration; and, in short, to ena
ble the poorer classes among the Irish to become
owners and cultivators of the land and acquire
comfortable homes in the inviting agricultural
districts of the West and South. Such an asso
ciation, it is believed, would form a powerful
auxiliary to the cause of Irish coloniza
tion. The conference will be composed
of accredited representatives from the dif
ferent colonization societies in the United
Stales, the number of representatives to be
fixed bv those societies, and the'question as to a
basis of representation, should it arise, to bo
left to the assembled wisdom of the confer
ence. The call states that the assembly will be
in the Interest of no one section or narticular
scheme of colonization, and that it is called in
the conviction that its labors will be, directed
impartially for the good of the people'and the
benefit of every deserving colony withorft dis
crimination. Where no societies exist, it is sug
gested that the Bishop of the diocese, or dis
trict, appoint delegates, and that notification of
all apuointments of delegates be sent to W. J.
Onahan, President of St. Patrick’s, prior to the
meeting of the conference.

A final estimate for $6,194 was issued bv the

The Finance Committee did not concur in the
Comptroller’s idea of givine the City Treasurer

Ireland this evening, and will be absent about

it, and were all remanded.

voluntary assignment in the County Court yes
terday, aud D. C. Adams was appointed As

In the Criminal Court yesterday the jury in
the ease of Peter Campbell, who was tried Fri-
day for larceny, was found to be unable to agree
after Being out all night, and was discharged at
2 o’clock. Tim Moore and Edward Mulligan
were found guilty of larceny and given three
aud a half years each in the Penitentiary.
A gentleman came all the way from the Vil
lage'of Niles Centre yesterday to ascertain
whether a license had been issued to Farmer
Harms to keep a dram-shop. When he found
that none had been issued, he narrated how the
Farmer was running a groggery and keeping
everybody drunk, and as he left he said he
would make it hot for the old gentleman as
soon as he got home.
The Committee on Jail and Jail Accounts had
a lengthy session yesterday alternoon consider
ing the claim of ex-Shcrift Kern and two of his
asiistants for work done after Dec. 1 in closing
up the Sheriff’s accounts, etc. .Mr. Kern was
represented by an attorney, and the discussion
partook of a legal character, while the assistants
were represented by Frank Cunningham, who
based his claim upon the ground of equity and
right between the county and himself. The re
sult of the wrangle was the claims of Cunning
ham and Garrick were allowed, and Mr. Kern
requested to turn whatever funds he had be
longing to the county at once. The Committee
didhot decide that Kern had no claim in justice,
but from the ambiguity of the statutes on the
subject it could do nothing else than it did.
They expect Kem to refuse .to turn over the
money ($1,023), and the question will then go to
the courts to l test whether or not a Sheriff can
be paid for the necessary services performed in
settling up bis business after the expiration of
his term of office.
The decision of Judge Williams in the Clark-
St. Peter case, to the effect that a person
answering a summons to appear as a jnror was
entitled to pay for one day’s service, whether he
served or not, and which the Clerk of the
Criminal Court Is acting upon, promises to add
materially to the expense of the Criminal Court.
If t hey are entitled to pay in this ease they are
entitled to it in all cases, and if in this court, in
ail courts, so there is no estimating where the
cinense will stop. A majority of the Judges arc
understood to differ from Judge Williams in
his ruling, and under the circumstances it
wonid seem tiie part of discretion on the part
of the Clerk of the Criminal Court to go slow.
There is not less than $30,000 a year to the
county involved in the question, and, since the
Judges disagree, it would not be bad oolicy on
the part of those whose duty it is to issue jurors’
certificates in the several courts to err, if at all,
on the side of public economy, and to refuse to
issue certificates until compelled to by man
damus or other process.

except Messrs. Scnne and Spofford, and har
mony is said to hare prevailed, although some
o£ the caucusers were afterward caucusing with
the other side of the house. The result of the
very private meeting was that it was resolved to
dismiss all of the engineers now employed by
the county, and to appoint Edward McDonald
for the Hospital, a Mr. Schmidt for the Insane
Asylum, and a Mr. Rutland, from the country,
for the Jail and Criminal Court Building. The
first-named is understood to have been
suggested by Mr. Coburn, the second by
Mr. Boese, and the third by Mr., Wood.
It remains to he seen whether they will
be elected or not. Better laid plans have been
defeated hetore, and since some of the engi
neers whom it is proposed to remove have some
warm friends in the Board, and some of the
members of the caucus are decidedly unrciiaule,
it would he unsafe to wager a pinch' of snuif on
the result.

BAUM’S GRAND JURORS,
EXAMINATION BEFORE JUDGE WILLIAMS.
/The rule* against Grand Jurors Schmidt and
Richardson, entered a week ago, to show cause
why they should not be punished for contempt,
was returnable before Judge Williams in the
Criminal Court yesterday morning, and, after a
burglary trial bad been completed, was taken
up, formal pleadings being waived.
. Mr. Childs appeared for Richardson, and
Sphmidt for himself.
It was admitted that they were drawn as
Grand Jurors at the last term, and acted as
such.
BERNARD BAUM
was called by Staie’s-Attorney Mills, and told
his story. He appeared as prosecuting witness
before a Magistrate against Mr. Crafts for libel,
the defendant waiving an examination. The
case came up before the Grand Jury. He knew
Schmidt and Richardson, the latter since a
week ago last Tuesday, when be saw him in the
Grand Jury room. The next day Richardson
came to his place on Wabash avenue, about 5
o’clock in the afternoon, and asked to see him
privately. They went into a room, and Rich
ardson a&kcd him if he cored about getting
Crafts ilulictcd. Baum told him the
present Grand Jury had not returned an indict
ment, and the case would probably be brought
up before the next one. Richardson said the
case was not disposed of. w We just postponed
it for a week Or so; and if you care much about
it, it can be UxVd so that you can get an indict
ment against him.” Bauin asked how he would
do it, and Richardson replied: Von know well
enough how those eases nave to be fixed up. If
you put up bomc hioncv in McDonald’s Store, it
cun be fixed Richardson said further
that it took twelve,-and that it would be worth
81,000 advertising it be could get *• that man ”
indicted. Schmidt spoken to him (Baum)
aoout it, and If no uiflfctment was found he
would get his moneyg.baek. .No sum was
.mentioned that he 'was to put up.
Baum told him he vmmldn’t like to do
it. Richardson said, ‘‘That is the only way vou
can succeed in getting Ad undictmcnt.” This
hud-befn done in several other cases, Richard
son .mentioning (ireeneboumls case, and one
from the country.' Baum tola him again he
wouldn’t like to do it, and Richardson said,
•‘All right.” Leaving the room, Baum asked
Richardson to have a cigar, which be took, and
then be went away. As to Schmidt, Baum met
him on State street, near Eldridge court, the
day he was before the Grand Jury. Schmidt
was with another person, and said he would go
with liim (Baum). They went to the Pavilion,
and had a drink, and Schmidt said,
“ Let’s sit down.” He said his (Baum’s)
case was not disnosed of, bat had been post
poned about a week, and they would very likely
take it up again. Schmidt said he was in favor
of it, but some others were against it, and
wouldn’t find an indictment. Be made no in
timation about monev.
On cross-examination, Baum said Richardson
had not asked him in the Grand Jury room if
he (Baum) kept a load house. He did not keep
a house of assignation.
SCHMID^
here arose and admitted that he met Baum on
State street, but said Baum asked him to sro
to his place. He had told Baum if he wanted
to advertise himself he should do It through the
newspapers,—that the Grand Jury was not a
medium of advertising*
This Baum deuied.
Schmidt—Who paid for the drinks at jour
place?
Baum—l think nobody did. I asked you.
_ LOUIS SIWIXO,
Baum’s barkeeper, testified that he saw Rich
ardson when he called, ami also Schmidt, who
came in twice ami asked for Baum after they
rll keen ki the saloon together,
\r S i l * l6 05150 the prosecution.
31 r. Childs stated that the « theory»» of the
defense was tliat it was a case of mistaken ident
ity. lie bad some affidavits which he would
read.
The Court wanted to see the oartiea.
E. p. haven
was sworn. He haa known Richardson eight or
pine years, and bad never heard anything against
mm. Ue had s.en him that Wednesday about
5 o’clock at his (witness’) place ot business,
corner of Sooth Water ami Clark eireets-ihJ
store of G. Goodrich & Co. Richardson called
lor his letters, he haring the privilege o£ havin'*-
them sent there, and remained ten or tiftceu
minutes. Ue saw something in the newspapers
about the matter, and lelt an interest in it,
knowing Richardson, and began to thins ot the
time he_ had seen him, and be satisfied himseil
it was Wednesday, because Thursday night he
bought a hog and went home with it.
On cross-examination, .Air. Jliaven said bo
simply guessed at the hour, having no watch.
