the Amateurs," Is significant. Society is feel
ing Uio want of n more chaste and Intellectual
amassment than tho theatres alford. A few
years ago dancing and skating woro the popu

has Its amateur theatrical performers, both
malo and female. This has grown out of tho
degeneracy of the stage,—not so much tn Uie
selection of the plays, but In tho way the per
formance is conducted. Take, for example, tho
" Two Orphans." Harsh treatment wo sxoect,
but the vulgar wav la which the blind orphan Is

evening Are was discovered in tho planhuc-mill
of J. T. Denham, on Carter street. A strong
wind blowing at tho ttmo caused tiie rapid
spread of tho flames to surrounding buildings
ana piles of lumber. Thu saloon and dwelling
of William Kramor, corner of Carter street and
Scranton avenue, was enveloped In flames, and
soon destroyed; likewise tho Variety Iron-
Works, with a vast amount of machinery on
hand. From thence the flames communicated
to the largo transportation house ot the Great
Western Dispatch, on tho opposite side of
Scranton avenue, a building several hundred
feet long. Being old nud dry, It soon suc
cumbed to the destroyer. Very little freight
happened to bo in tho building, but nearly all
were saved. The river checked further advance
of the flames westward. The flro extended to
the lumber yards of Woods, Perry & Co., and
House & Davidson. Pile after pile of lumber
molted nwar in a short time. Seven steamers
poured constant streams upon tho flames, but,
owing to tho dry nature cf tho material, slow
progress was made by the firemen, and tho lire
raged sororal hours. It is Impossible to-nlglil

The Ante-Mortem Statement—An Old
Woman Who Prevaricates.
A new and bloody chapter Id the bistory of
an ancient family fend lias to be recorded this
morning. Murder is bad enough, although,
thanks to corrupt juries, It bos gotten to bo
almost a venial offense In Chicago, but when it
takes the form of fratricide it Is even worse
than In otner cases. There is, however, some
thing of retributive justice lu Uie latest bond

of three revolver-shots fired by bis younger
brother was the direct Instrument two years ago
of the death of his elder brother.
are as follows:
A colored family named Jones, residing In the
vidnltr of Thirty-first and Butterfield streets,
have, during Uio post three years, contributed
more than their fair proportion to the criminal
history of this crime-elalncd city. The mother
and father quarreled Incessantly until Uie old
woman obtained a divorce, some years ago.
The family consisted originally of eight chil
dren. Eugene, tho eldest, was murdered In
April, 1677, by James, who yesterday fell a vic
tim to the ready revolver. Robert Is a barber,
and la now In SU Paul. John la a sleeping
car porter, In Uie employ of the
Chicago, Rock Island ft Pacific Railroad.
Josephine died several years ago. James Is 28
years old, and bas been engaged In Uie express
businass, having an office at No. 0 Cottago
Grove avenue. Theodore, a student at Ann
Arbor, Mich., (s about 25 years old. Prince Al
lien, the homicide of yesterday, in 23 or so, sml
Is also in thu express business, with an office at
221 Thirty-first street. Tho youngest child Is
Beatrice, a girl of 81.
April 28, 1877, a shooting affray occurred In
the* little office on Cottage Grove avenue, in
was killed by James. The homicide was arrest
ed, and, although the case was as certainly a
deliberate murder as any homicide couid bo,
James, who was indicted for manslaughter,
went free, an idiotic jury finding that he killed
his brother In self-defense. Tlic expenses of
the trial were heavr, and James called on his
brothers for pecuniary assistance. A hoase and
lot at No. l&tl Bnltcrflold street was deeded
by the old man to Mrs. Jones when the divorce
was arranged. She had a life-interest In Die prop
erty, which was to be divided at her death
among the three youncer children. James tried
to induce bis mother and Prince Albert to ralsu
some money on the property for tlic
purpose of defraying the expenses of the trial.
The old lady amfPrlnce refused to consent, and
this caused bad blood between (lie brothers.
Since that time there has been a constant suc
cession of quarrels, rows, tights, nud threaten
ing*. The*old woman professed to bo afraid of
her life of James, and supported Prince through
out. The latter resided with her at 1541 Butter
field street, while James bad a room at 1300
Dearborn with a colored family named Reyn
James has been several times arrested on com
plaint of Prince for threats and attempted as
sault. About two weeks ago, while James was
riding with a colored girl on a State-street car,
'Die bullet was turned bv something in his
clothes, and only a slight wound was Inflicted.
Proceedings were commenced and are still pond
lug at the Armory. Since that time the mother
caused tlic arrest of James and his trial before
the County Court for Insanity. Tills plan for
getting rid of him and saving Prince from the
Penitentiary proved a miserable failure, the
jury at once pronouncing the man sane. The.
latest legal proceedings la which the family
figured were had in Justice Wallace’s Court
two days ago, when the Court ordered
James to vacate the bam in the rear
of hls mother's premises on Butterfield street.
It will, therefore, bo readily aeon that there has
been no lack of disputes, legal and otherwise,
between the boys, nud no one who knows them
is in the least degree surprised at the tragic out
come of this long-continued quarrel.
Yesterday morning about 7:30 o’clock James
went to the barn in roar of bis mother’s house
to attend to his horses.
and a colored man named Bam Johnson, who
drives a wagon for Prince. As to whst hap
pened in tlic barn, accounts differ. It Is said
that the brothers bad a light there, and that
James attempted to flro a revolver, which
snapped, but refused to work. Then Prince
drew his own gun mid put three shots Into
James, any one of which would suffice to kill an
ordinarv man. James is, however, not an or
dinary man physically, lie started to run, mid
succeeded In clearing a six-foot fence wtilch di
vides his mother’s premises from n vacant lot
immediately south. He ran across lots to

was no appearance of any injuries having been
received by the man, and Reilly asked why he
wanted the officer. Jones replied that he hail
been shot four or flvotimes, lie was taken into
the cnelDo-houso and there fainted away. Dr.
TVluncos was called Id, and an attache of tho
Fire Department telegraphed to Twenty-second
street Button for au officer. Jones told whore

spine. The doctors probed the wounds, but
were unable to linnd any of the bullets, mid they
unanimously agreed that Jim would die,—per
haps within an hour or two,—perhaps not for
twenty-fours. Curiously enough, there was do
bleeding from any of the wounds, although It
was bolforod that one bullet passed through Die

The Bostons and Cbfcagoe played Uiclr final
game of thdr present trip yesterday, the result
liclng a victory for Uie home nine, by a score of
4 lo 3, after a close ami interesting contest.
Owing to the continued soreness of Larkin's
arm, it was found necessary to again put in
Ilsnkinson m pitcher, Larkin going to left field.
The change worked well, aa the Boston's were
unable to bat llanklnsoo's delivery to any dis
astrous extent,—not so heavily, in fact, by 25
percent, as did the White Stockings that of
Foley, Bond being still laid up with a sprained
'Hie Rime opened rather losuspldoosly for
Chicago, the Bostons going first to bat, and
earning two runs off singles by Houck and
Foley, and a double bagger by Border; while the
home nine was retired without a tally,
although Quest reached first by a floe bit
to left field. In the second inning Anson
led oft with a long fly to left field, which
yielded two bases. Binder sent him to
third by a grounder to right, but was him*
self put out on Burdock’s mud of Larkin’s fly,
the bail being picked up and sent to second In
time to cat od Scatter. Anson came In on the
play, and Gore struck oat, Flint haring dona
the same thing previous to Larkin’s bit. An
earned run was secured in the third Inning after
the Boston* had been whitewashed. Quest bit*
ting a safe grounder to left for one base, steal
ing second, and coming homo on Williamson’s
two*baser to right. In the fonrth the gamo was
won. Bhader started in bv knocking the ball
over O’Rourke’s bead, tallying on Flint’s
grounder to right. Larkin’s Hr over
second base was muffed bv O’Rourke,
who ran lo for it, and Flint tallied.
Gore sent a grounder to right field, and was
thrown out at first base. Honklnson hit lalelv
to left, Larkin going to third (having reached
second on the play by which Gore was retired).
Quest sent a grounder to Burdock, which ro*
suited in a double play, Uanklnson being forced
at second base and the striker thrown out at
There were no more tallies made until the
eighth Inning, when, after Button and Jones
had been retired, Houck hit over the right-field
fence for two hoses, coming in on a wild pitch.
Foley reached first on Peters’ mud of bis
grounder, but O’ltourke, who bit a savage one
to right, died at first, Shader making a splendid
stop and throw.

game with Syracuse. In one Inning, the sixth,
the batsmen used Ncsgle pretty roughly, hit
ting for seven total bases, but in Die other In
nings ho was remarkably effective, and was not
the cause of the Clnctnnatts 1 defeat. This was
owing solely to a remarkable Impoleuey in bat
ting. They made but five hits, two for two
bases, and reached firs! only six limes. Only
three men reached second base, one was left
there, one left at third, and one made a run. In
the field they were alto very weak, though dodo
of the hitting was bard to handle.
