AFHIfJNKR VOCKR’3 ANSWER.
About a month ago a rule was made spalnst
...J,., r0 Vucku. former Assignee of the defunct
rerai*siila Insurance Company, to show camm
,I.« his discharge as Asalpnec should not bo set
lie. This rule wan baaed on n petition and
HflirtnTlt, which charged that Vocko hod failed
t« account for about $40,000 which ho had rc-
Ifcd Yesterday Vocke Hied his answer, twen
weight pair** lecal trtip In length, occom
pmlcd hr twonty-cipht affidavits covering scy
•ntT-rty® pnKUimorc.'
In his answer Vocko admits Hint on the 23d
of ArrH«lß“‘L , * , ° day ,IC3ct succeeding the Inst
frcdllors’ meeting of the Company, he drew, os
AMtgnec, two checks for $3,000 and $3,500 ro
tnecilTcly, hut he denies that this was In addi
tion to 1T.M0.53 received previously for services,
though he had received $0.71)0.85 before, lie
dm* theta sums without order of court, but
they were subsequently sniictloncd by the cred
itors and Register. Ito dentes that lie ever drew
»nr sums for services contrary to Jaw, or that
he failed to report to the creditors that, ho had
(Irsmi $0,790 before. The fact was, as ho states,
tbnt lust before the last meeting he made up
bis Recount, put lu I- the 57,500 additional, and
ihst this report was read at the meeting and
inorored. The next day, therefore, lie
area' the checks for tho $7,500, ami
lud them countersigned by Iho Register. Tills
iliurffc of $7,. P *CO, therefore, ho omitted from his
flail report, ns ho had Included St In a former
r«inort. uml as it had been passed on by the credi
tors. Be further admits that according to his llnnl
rfixirt lie took 91,500 more, but lie denies that
he weired slfi»WH«6s. but only got $15,700.85.
Re denies that he was only entitled to 5 per cent
on the first $1,003 collected, 2K Per cent on the
next $5,000, and I per cent on the remaining
but claims that, under See.
iOW) of the Revised Statutes, he was
aim entitled to ns much as the Court
in Its discretion would give him. Ho was
appointed Assignee in .March, 1873, mid
rtn! not render Ilia final account until August,
IhTO, so that ho govd over four years’ time to
the business, lie also charges that the work of
closing up the Germania was far more olfikult
than that of winding up some of the other com
panies bankrupted by the great fire, as Its assets
trere in n precarious condition, ami Micro wuro
over 1,800 creditors. IRs compensation was
about $3,050 a year, which.he thinks was much
smaller than was allowed to some other As
tlgnccs, nml onlv about the same rate ns al
iened for the administration of decedents’ es
tates. The Assignee further denies Mint
lm lias charged any sums for office rent,
clerk hire, or other expenses which he
lias not poi i. He charged s3l a month rent
from April, 1873, to April, 1873, but ho says ho
mis obliged In great part to give up his law
practice, uml hla rooms were so constantly filled
with inquiring creditors that bethought him
self Justified In making such charge. So too
iliu charge of $35 a month from April, 1873, to
April, 1810, for rent, ho thinks was justified by
the circumstances, though it was half the rent
of his whole office, mid Unit of his partner J, B.
Leake. Tart of the time he did not retain a
iceulsr clerk, but engaged a voung man after
luons mid evenings, so as to economize as much
as DOAsfhle. Part of the sums charged
for attorney’s fees also were actually ex
pended for printing abstracts, bride, etc.
At the lust meeting of the creditors, Hie As
deuce was allowed SI,OOO for winding up the
estate, which, he says, was used ns.follows: For
clerk hire, $740; oillco rent, janitor, mid mus
tencer service, $935; and incidentals, $0.75.

Heaver Comity, fu., Hu* a Cano of It,
fip'dfil Dlupatcn to 77,e Tribune.
I‘irraiiumi, Be., May 10.—A social sensation
of an unusual character lias come to light In
Heaver County, Pa., only a few miles from
Pittsburg. Annie Moore, or Jones, as site must
now bu called, is tbo only daughter mid young
est child of a well-to-do gentleman, a United
States Government Storekeeper In Indiana
County, but a resident of Beaver. Her three
brothers occupy positions of public esteem, two
. of them being talented members of the Beaver
County Bar, and one an accomplished Phila
delphia physician. The family is highly con
nected, ex-Chlef-Justico Agnew being her
undo and Judge Hlcu (Judge of Beaver
County) her cousin b) marriage. Bho
Is n beautiful and hlgbly-cducotod girl, 20 years
of ago, but Ims always beou of a headstrong
disposition, and, being an only daughter, she
was allowed to have pretty much her own way.
it is reported that one of her brothers reproved
her a dav or two ago for sumo reason or other,
which highly olTomlcd her, Hho left home yes
terday, wldeii was the last that was seen of her
until this morning, when George Jones, a col
ored coal-miner, walked Into the house of the
Bcv. Robinson (colored) nt Rochester, accom
panied bv her. Mr. McGowan, clerk of the
Commissioners of Beaver County, passing
by, was called in, nml, ibongb not recognizing
Miss M. at tint sight, witnessed the marriage
ceremony. Miss M. being of rather dark com
plexion, Ills possible that ovon the clergyman
was. ignorant of her social standing nt Hie time.
The couple quickly returned to Beaver, ami
mode immediate arrangements for housekeep
ing. They went to what Is known as the MarnU
place, near the Pair-Ground, a small house of
four rooms, which they share In common with
several blacks. She then scut homo for her
piano and trunk.
It Is needless to say her strange freak has
greatly distressed her family and friends. The
community Is greatly excited over the remarka
ble affair, and some of the young men freely
talk of bouncing the negro for taking advantage
of (lie thoughtless girl, nut the elder and wiser
heads counsel forbearance. They think that
out of respect to the esteemed family no
further notice should betaken of the matter,
the tabooing of society being about a sullidcnt
rebuke, for, though her choke was of course
distasteful to all, she bad aright to term a
matrimonial alliance with whom she pleased,
mid miscegenation Is by no means a crime in
this State.
Jones was formerly a servant of the family,
but it was not known that he had any Intimacy
with tbo young lady who Is oow his wife.

claims. They were, however, willing to extend
thu time for payment conditioned on Its bclm:
tiimlo promptly on July I. The matter went to
tho .Finance Committee.
Thu President reported that bo bad appointed

HUMBOLDT PAUIf.
A recommendation of thu Improvement Com
mittee Hint certain citizens residing on Hum

that thoroughfare waa concurred in.
Thu same Committee reported *in regard to
the erection ot a pavilion lacing the lake in Hum
boldt Park to serve us a band-house mid u
shelter In ease of ruin, und to afford accommo
dulSon for a restaurant. They had found that
the money at their command was Inadequate,
and had Invited plans. One building suggested
would cost about 91,600 mid another $3,000.
The plana were shown, und discussed at some
length.
Mr. Kahlfc moved to adopt tho more expen
sive plan. It was stated Umt the estimate was
only an approximate one.
The Chair said It was doubtful whether they
would have the money to pay for unv Improve
mcms-unless they could float their bonds. They
bud to meet tlu-ir current expenses, the vouch
ers which would fall due In June, mid the over
due bonds In New York. They aid not know

minor improvements until such time us the
Board could pass upon the plans. The Board
then adjourned. .
ADAMS STinSBT.
MOVEMENT TO MAKS IT A 110UI.KVAUD.
Last evening between forty nml 11.ty of the
owners of property nlomr West Adams street
assembled at Owsley’s Kali, corner of Robey
and West Madison streets, to further consider
Hie project of petitioning the Council to turn
Adams street over to thu Wust Park Hoard for
boulevard purposes. Air. E. F. Alien presided.
Mr. K. A. Sherburne, on behalf of the Commit*
tec appointed at u meeting held, the week pro*
vlous to ascertain the requirements of (ho law
governing such action as was contemplated,
read for the Information of the meeting the re
cently-approved statute.
The Onalrmaii took occasion to correct a
wrong Impression which ho said many hud no
doubt formed by reading thu report concerning
thu previous meeting, and which was that many
of the owners of property upon Wust Adams
street wero opposed to thu transformation of
that thoroughfare into a boulevard. On the
contrary, so far os his observation had gone, no
one hud expressed himself against it. Air.
John K. Owsley also took occasion to say that
he hud heard only one man speak ocalnst thu
measure, and ho had only an equitable interest
in property on Attains street, mid a real Interest
on Washington street.
The matter of circulating petitions for signa
tures was discussed, and It was thought best to
engage one or two persons, upon salary, to do
Hus work, and to tills end a'collection was taken
up and the sum of sin.Us secured. The money
was turned over to Messrs. Owsley mid ilem
street, who wore Instructed to engage the as
sistance necessary.
The Cbaiimou said bo bad been Informed that
the Committeu on Streets ami Allots of tbu
West iMviiiou Had already selected West Wash
ington street lor boulevard purposes, mid re
ported the same to Hie Council, it this were
so, u committee should bu ut unco appointed by
this meeting to cunler with ihu said Committee
of the Council, mid endeavor to secure a post
ponement of action on tho street already
named.
Aid. Everett, of tho Twelfth Ward, said such
action had been taken by .tho Committee, but
It was laid over one week and published, mid
would In all probability bu reached by the
Council next Monday evening. It could, ho bu

Tokomoub City, .Ma., May H.— The case of
Miss Lily Duer, who shot nml Killed Ml&s Ella
Hearn In this city In November last, will coma
up for disposition at Uiu .May term of the Cir
cuit Court of Worcester County. The near ap
proach of thu dav uf the Court’s convening
Imsrevlvcd public Interest In the tragedy. The
ease, taken In all its details, Is a remarkable one,
tho most singular that has aroused speculation
mid gossip in thu lower part of Peninsular
Maryland. It scents to be an Instance of
ouu of those freaks of human nature which
give womanly men mid manly women,
mid Is all tho more curious, complex,
and occult because there happened to
he no exterior Indication of the psychic
anomaly. Miss Hearn was shot by .Miss buer
because thu former repulsed her warm demon-
Htrotlons, ami loved another young lady better.
This, with tiiu fact Hint the voting lady who did
the shooting sought for years thu private com
panionship of (he other, together with several
other interesting revelations, shows a manli
ness hi i/cUo which might never have excited re
mark hut fur the passion and tragedy It led to.
. The families of both young ladles are among
the highest In point of social position in this
section uf the State. Nowhere does there exist
a better typo ot gentle and courteous hospital
ity titan here, and both families are fit repru
sciitnttves of that class uf generous and cul
tured people. Tho voting lady was only about
IS years of age at the time, and botli were
very pretty and attractive. Not long pre
vious limy had graduated wltii honors, both
from the same seminary mid at thu same
lime. They also entered the Institution to
gether, and were ruum-nmlcs while there. Both
were calculated to shine in society, and
were looked upon us reigning belles.
Miss Ducr was a brunette, with slightly
dark complexion, and blm k eyes mid hair.
Him was about thu medium bight, with u
•lender and grucelul figure, but linclr devel
oped. In society she was much sought after,
and possessed rare social acquirements. Her
couvursaUou was brilliant mid entertaining,,
mid her musical abilities were regarded
as very fine. Him was u -groat reader,
frequently sitting up the greater part
of the ulght with her books, and bad
been studying mediciue for six mouths previ
ous to Urn shooting. Her studies iu this lino
she ,is still pursuing. There are sumo who
tell of numerous peculiarities in Miss Uuer,
which, however, were nut indulged in so extrav
agantly as to give rise to much uuplossaut town
gossip. One of these queer trails la that she
has duuucd male attire on mure than ono occa
sion. it is also said that she frequently prac
ticed. with the pistol, uud was os good
a shot with the gun as any of the
fowlers along tho abore of thu I’okumoko.
Miss Hearn was of a very different type. There
was nothing peculiar about hvr. Hhe woa a
pure-minded, unassuming girl, who bud few
foolish notions, and whose ambition did nut ex
tend beyond the sphere of a quiet, happy home.
Him was a (air, delicate girl, uut quite ub (all cs
Mlsi Duor, ami of n ntylu of beauty mtich mom
rellucu. Sim wns also neeompllsticd, Inti moro
reserved. Her disposition was excellent, him!
every uno who know her liked her.
Between these two girls intimate terms of ac
quaintance existed, but the affection of Miss
Ducr for Miss Hearn appears to have hceon ex
traordinarily morbid. ’Hie relation* between
Im l , wo commenced In the early oart of 1875.

Intelligent girl, ns well asone |ms*M s«iiig a good
education, am] Mr. 1 1 earn save he did not object
to the glris’ Intimacy, as he thought It would
bcnellt them hath. As Uic acquaintance grew,
Miss Ducr began to visit the Hearn homestead
so irrqucntly that It became somewhat impleas
ant lor Miss Eih. umi, In tin: Full of 1878, the
jailer tried to sever the association altogether.
?i° 110 furjK>«p. however. Every effort
met with (he same fruitless result. Scarcely a
day passed on which Mbs Duer was not nb Miss
Jlearn «home, unless Miss Duer was In the
country visiting some friend; ami even then
! k »own to cut luTTlslla abort mid
return to the lown. Lmli.it to see Mias Ella
before rcnnlrinii to her own home. Very ire
quentlv Mis* Ella would. In the kindliest man
ner, tell her to go homo mnl not call again,
umi olien the only answer Miss D U er gave
would bo to place her arms around tint other's
neck and kiss her and tell her she loved her.
Miss Duer would dally try to get Miss Ilearn to
walk with her In the woods or remain with her
alone In the parlor. Last October an incident
occurred that will, doubtless, have considerable
weight In the Inal. The girls felt Uie house to
trethcr one dir, and took a walk in a
grove not far from this place. Jlere thev re
mained fur Some time gatln-ring tea-hcrries.
\\hcn starting for home Miss ilearn went
ahead, and, after a short time. Miss Uuer, who
loitered ami was walking some distance behind,
called to her to wait. She did not heed this re
quest. It Is alleged that Miss Ducr then raised
a pistol and tired three times at her com
panion. Miss Hearn waited till the other came
up. still bolding the pistol In her band. She
at once took the weapon away from Mies
Ducr, asking if she intended to shoot her
‘‘No." replied Miss Duer, “1 only Intended to
frighten you, and make vou wait fur me." Mias
Hearn never walked with Mis* Ducr in the
woods after that, and their Intimacy seems to
have ended with that Incident. Some Impor
tance is attached to this occurrence, because
there are various opinions expressed ns to
whether the shouting was Intentional or not.
Many who say It was relate this occurrence
as proof of an attempt made previously, but
there is noexislitig testimony, except that of
hearsay, to support It. A snort time after this
another young lady, Miss Ella Foster, came be
tween the two friends, and Miss Hearn rapidly
grew to prefer her companionship to that of
Miss Ducr. This made the latter very Jealous.
It was not long alter Miss Duer became awuro
Hint she was being supplanted In the friendship
of Miss Hearn that Hie shooting occurred.
Alias Hearn, on the 4th of November, received
a note from Miss Duer asking her to come to her
house that evening on Important business. Blic
called in company with her younger sister. Miss
Ducr tried to pursuadeher to go Into Uic woods
with her the next any. She refused to go. .Miss ‘
Duer fell upon her knees umi vowed io Al
mighty Ood that If she did not comply with
her request she would never make another of
her. The next dav Miss Ducr come to Mr
Hearn’s house, mid Insisted that Miss Ella
should go Into Hie woods wltn her. She met
with n positive refusal. She then went up to
Miss Ella, nmfe placing her hands on her
shoulders, looked her straight In the eyes and
said, ** Do you love any one else better
than me I" 'The playful answer was,
"Yes." -Miss Ducr, in great cxcllemeut. walked
to umi fro from Hie front door to the yard gate
several times, and dually entered the passage
where Miss Ella stood, ami closed the door.
Walking hurriedly toward her, she tried to kiss
her, but Miss Hearn resisted and pushed her
away. Mis* Ducr flipped ami fell, and, as site
was rising, drew her pistol, a small Smith
As Wesson revolver, and tired. The ball struck
Miss ilearn in the huml, inflicting n painful,
although not, as It appeared at that lime, dan
gerous wound. This account of the shooting is
in accord with that said to have been dictated
by Miss Hearn before her death, mid while her
mind was perfectly clear. The llrsl person upon
the scene of the shooting was a voung man named
W. S. Clark, who was working near the house.
He heard Uie shot tired, and, wondering what It
meant, entered thu house. Ho found Miss
Hearn lying on the sofa in groat agitation, while
Miss Ducr was rushing about the roam in high
excitement, with the pistol still in her huml,
exclaiming, "I have shot her, I have shot her."
That evening Dr. Truitt was allied, but ho
found that Hie young lady's system hud sua*

to tell, mid, turning over on her face, begun
to weep bitterly. She afterward voluntarily
stated, ho save, (hat It was intentional. The
Coroner’s Jury, on the Uth of December, ren
dered o verdict that “death was caused by nerv
ous prostration, resulting from a hall from a
pistol while In tlm hands of Miss l.tlr liner."
()u the tllli of December Miss Duer entered bail
in the sum ol $‘,1,500 to appear in conn at Bnuw
Hill, the county seat, at the May term, com
mencing on the lUtb Inst.
VVhllo Miss Jlcarn was sick, Miss Duer exhlb
(ted much sympathy for her, and one occasion
when film was In Mr. Hearn’s house, Mis* Kiln
called her Into tier room and seemed greatly
pleased at seeing her. Mis* Hearn was per
fectly rational at Hie time. Upon Unit
occasion, It Is said, stiu ashed Miss Duer
what was the matter with her, and the
latter answered llmt she was hurl, tiho
asked who it was that did It, and Miss Duer re-
K'icd that it was herself (Miss Duer). Miss
earn Is tlicu said to liuvo put her arms allce
tiunalcly around the lady’s neck and remarked:
“ Then you didn't mean to do it, 1.11, did
vou't” it is related llmt on another occasion
Miss Duer went Into the sick-room when
the patient was delirium and knew no
one, nut crcn her parents. She recognized
Miss Duct, however, and cried out in the creat
es! fear for her not to shoot her again, at the
same time drawing the bedclothes over her
head. Bho tola Miss Duer to go away, and
would not bo quiet until she left the room.
Many other stories are told In relation
to the case, one of which Is that when Miss
•Hearn’s illness was near its sad termina
tion,'Miss Duer left Vokomoko (htv in male
attire and went to Baltimore, and 'thence to
Wilmington, Del., returning within a few days
of the unfortunate girl’s death. Many allege
that this is (me, and one gentleman buys Unit
he saw Miss Duer at the Wilmington depot and
had a short conversation with her. Theaccused
and her friends deny tills story emphatically.
Vour correspondent visited Miss Duorat her
father’* residence, which 1* on the principal
street, and one of the lineal houses in tun town.
.'lolngseut fur by her mother, Miss Lily jim-r
entered llm room, dim wears tier lialr cut
short and parted on Urn riebt side,
uml brushed back from tbu forubcad. Jler
fucu ii striking. Her features uru reg
ular uml llrmly chiseled, her eyebrows am
regularly arched, and the. lips arc rather thin,
with an expression denoting limitless. Miss
Utter readily euusenlnd lo answer questions In
relation to (be tragedy, mid befuro any were
propounded said that tin* shooting was purely
occidental, dim bad called to sue Miss /learn,
•be said, lo got her to lake a walk, which
she bud refused to do. dim bad then
tried to kiss her, but Miss Hearn resisted, mid
oiler buying given up Hie attempt, she stood'
counting the cartridges in tier pistol, when it
went oil by accident. Miss liner denied tlmtabo
bad ever llred a Pistol at Minn Hearn while walk
ing with bur In tlie woods. Slio also said that
altu had never left i’ukomuke City In maiu cloth
ing. Him expressed great sorrow at tbu acci
dent mid Its result, but steadily maintained (bat
It was dot dona Intentionally.
Asto whether Urn shooting was done with
Intention public opinion Is at variance. No utiu
was present when tint stmt was llred, and so tbu
whole matter rests upon thu deposition made
by Miss llcsrn upun her death-bed. The tom
meucemeut of tho trial Is awaited with great
interest.
