CHISELHCRST, July 12.—The poor Empress
was a rrey to overwhelming grief on the arrival
B f the boav at Camden House last night. It
was supposed that she had retired to the seclu
tion of her boudoir, but, on the contrary, hav
in-r eluded her sympathizin': friends, she had
silently none into the room set apart as
the mortuary chamber. No sooner had the
coffin entered the door than a shriek revealed
the presence of the bereaved mother. She was
led away, weeping bitterly. At midnight shc
again descended to the room of death and lay
prostrate, kissing the plate and moaning the
name “Louis.” She remained thus four hours,
when she sunk into a sleep from utter exhans
tion. , . ,
At 7 o’dock this morning she was again found
KNEELING AT TUB COFFIN’S SIDE.
JL Rouher and others remained outside, fear
ful of the consequences of such intensity of
grief. At 9 o’clock, however, the Empress
Tras wonderfully firm. She took a last look
at the dead face, and then, with all the
piteous passion of hopeless sorrow, kissed
the name on the coffin-plate in token of ever
lasting farewell. Friends of her youth and of
the days of her greatness gently led her out of
tlie room.
The churchyard and
THE CHAPEL OP ST. MAST
,-*as crowded hours before the time of
the ceremony. filer. Goddard, in purple
robes, was busy receiving the distin
guished members of the congregation. The
Dnkc of Sutherland was among the earliest to
arrive. The Countess Poniatowski, Mmo.
Canrobert, the Duchess of Manchester, and the
Marchioness of Londonderry came next. Then
followed the Ambassador of Germany, paying
the last tribute to the cause npon whose ruins
the Empire was erected. The Duke of Frias,
the special envoy from Spain, and the French
Ambassador were absent.
The whole chapel was heavily draped in black.
It was in complete darkness save for the yellow
candles at the catafalque, the altar, and at the
Emperor’s tomb. Just outside the sanctuary
were three priedieux draped in black, and empty,
belonging to three unfortunate and illustrious
worshipers, ot whom one only, the weakest, re
mains. Presently a hush announced the entry
of
THE PRINCESS OF WALES
in deep mourning. She was hardly able to con
trol her emotion as she was led to a seat at the
epistle side of the altar, where she knelt in
prayer. Soon the distant strains of the “Dead
March ” announced the approach of the cortege,
idetoebmentof Lancers waaleadiug, followed by
the cadets at slow march, who opened ranks on
entering the gate and formed on either side of
the path. The Bishop of Southwark received
the coffin at the gate. The Duke of Cambridge
superintended the dismantling of the coffin,
giving orders to the officers of artillery, who
bore the body within the church. This is
AN DiCIDEHT WITHOUT PBECEDENT
In the history of the British army. The Bishon.
having sprinkled the coffin, the choir began in
subdued tones to chant the “De Profundis.”
Then came the tall form and Napoleonic face
of Prince Napoleon, who evidently tried to
look serious.. Then was witnessed one
of thl most touching scenes In the
procession. Uhlmann, the Prince’s Alsatian
valet, entered weeping, heading the Imperial
household. Then followed Princes Luclen and
Charles, and Roland, the son of the fire-eatc,
Pierre, and PrinceJ Marat, then MM. Ronber,
Bennedltti - heading the Councillors, Sen
ators, and Deputies of the Empire,
with a solitary lady, PnnceasJ Mathilde,
In their midst. Then succeeded a
brilliant throng of British officers. As the pro
cession entered the “De Profundis” was played
on the harmonium, a giftot the Prince of Wales
to the little church. The singers in the choir
consisted of a few boys from the Cathedral of
El. George and a solidary singer permanently
attached to the little ihurch.
As the coffin was reverently laid on the cata
falque,
ALL KNELT, ■ ,
the Princess of Wales and the Princess Mathilda
sobbing audibly. On one side of the catafalque
were arranged the English Princes, the Bona
partes on the other, and a crowd of officers in,
glittering uniforms behind. All else was deep,
dense black.
The solemn requiem was then commenced to
the plain, plaintive Gregorian chant) a Requiem
Etcrnam, 11 ‘ l Kyric, ,, and “Dieslrac.” Then
the Bishop of Southwick intoned the solemn
preface, “Vere Dignum,” . with magnificent
Voice. It was an extraordinary sight. The Princ
es of Protestant England kneeling with bowed
heads so reverently as the Bishop raised the
host and the chalice, the little belfry tolling,
telling the crowds without of the solemn cere
monies within. The Baroness De Cattcr’s
daughter, Jlme, Lablaoche, sang the u Ave
Maria” of Saint-Saens. Then, doffing the
chasuble and donning the cone, the Bishop
and the attendant clergy stood at the head of
the catafalque. Mmc. Goddard then
intoned the “miserere.”
The Bishop, walking around the bier pronounc
ing the name of the Prince, gave the absolution.
The sobbing of the ladies here broke out afresh.
Suddenly, three volleys of musketry burst on
the ear, each followed by the roll of muffled
drums, the cadets thus rendering tribute to their
warrior comrade.
The rite ended, those who had loved the dead
Prince filed past the coffin sprinkling holy water,
strewing flowers, and whispering prayers. The
Princess of Wales deposited a wreath before the
bier. She was then led away by her husband.
The church was emptied of its sorrowful con
gregation. . Then for long hours a procession,
formed of those who desired to
TAKE A FINAL LOOK
Boon the dead face, passed through the aisles.
First came a deputation of the younc men of
France, then the students of Paris, then
the former students' of the Lycee, then
deputations from the departments of France,
the most conspuousic being from Corsica.
The coffin was hidden beneath a hill of
Cowers, chiefly violets. There were many men
present who were on the heights of Saarbrucfc
at the Prince’s baptism of fire. Others who had
fought at Sblferino, and still many more ‘who
had attended the funeral of the Emperor. Many
plucked leaves from the churchyard, which they

ILL-FEELING IN PRANCE.
; Various accounts mention that there is ill
feeling in France at the great demonstration of
mourning .in England. No member of the
French Emba«sy in London will be present at
the funeral. In the French Senate, on Friday,
a motion to postpone the nomination of the
Committee on Jules Ferry’s Education bill,
fccanse of the absence of the Bonapartisis, was
resisted by Belletan (Republican) on the ground
that thev were not absent because of a genuine
sentiment of mourning on their part, but bad j
gone to England in search of a Pretender. The j
nomination of the Committee was
postponed till Tuesday.
THE CORPSE.

presented an animated appearance on the oc
casion of the assemblage of the troops detailed
to take part In the funeral parade of the late

company of the First Battalion of the Twentv
third Fusiliers, of Waterloo fame. The troops
then formed again and marched to Chiselhurst
common. Here a halt was made near the north
entrance of Camden Place, where they formed
a guard of - honor and firing party.

THE ■ "WATCH BBS.
At the head of the coffin last night two Sis
ters of Mercy knelt in prayer, while the candles
ranged about threw a tender light upon the
face of the dead Prince. AH save the Sisters

tered. What took place as she gazed upon the
face of her dead son is not and probably will
not soon be known. All tnat is known is that

the coffin.

CRIME.
KOW AT A DANCE.
Special A.'rsclc.'! to Ike Tribune.
St. Louis, Mo.; July 12.— A murder was com
mitted at 2:30 this morning by Scott Hunter, a
colored roustabout, who killed Eugene. Blank,
also colored, by shooting him In the bead with a
shot-gun. Hunter’s house is situated a little
back of the Natural Bridge road, about halt a
mile from the Fair Grounds. Yesterday was bis
birthday, and to celebrate it be gave a hall,
to which all the colored aristocracy of the
neighborhood were invited at , the small
price of admission of 1,0 cents. Hunter
hired two fiddlers, laid in a stock of
lemonade, besides a supply of. whisky, and
beer. Between 9 and 10 o’clock the darkies re
sponded to the hop, and about forty came up
smiling, paid, their dime, and, although the ther
mometer was away up in ’the hundreds, danced
with more, vim and vigor than grace and ele
gance. Among those at the ball were the mur
dered man, Blank, and bis sister,’ Ben George,
Ben Johnson, and Charlie Williams. The bop
passed off pleasantly till nearly 2 o’clock. The
fiddlers fiddled, and the dancers danced. The
perspiration, lemonade, and bad ■ whisky
flowed. About 3 o’clock Mrs. Hunter
came into the , crowded ball-room and
said she was told some °‘
the men wanted to break no the ball. She also
said the gate of the fence ;of heriiouse was
brokee, and ste wanted them to go. Some one
suggested that it was the cows, whereupon Mrs.
Hunter said scornfully, “ YesJ a’ two-legged
cow." This epithet offended the fastidious
cars of the darky damsels present, and their
escorts took up the mat ter, and a war of words
ensued between half a dozen jind Mrs. Hunter.
Some strong language was indulged io, when
Scott Hunter interfered. ami Raid ha
wouldn't have his wife cussed. A
sharp reply followed, and from words
the party almost got to blows. A scuffle first
ensued between Cnarley Johnson and Hunter.
The crowd separated them, and shoved Hunter
into a room, Hunter then got a musket which
be had in the bouse. The colored men mean
while had gone out on the porch and into the
garden, while the women stood outside the
icucc. Hunter went out of the house and made
one or two demonstrations with his gun, which
was then not loaded, and, finding they did not
make much impression, he re-entered the
house and loaded the weapon with
a buckshot charge. Shortly afterwards
heletnergcd again.into thejstreet and approached
where two men were standing near the porch of
his house. One of these men was Ren George,
the other was Eugene Blank. As Hunter came
round the corner on the porch he shouted, with
an oath, “Scatter; I am’ going to kill you.”
Ho immediately fired.' George did not catch
the words that Hunter said, but, hearing a
noise, turned his head, when he beheld Hunter
aiming at him with his musket. Ho in
stantaneously ducked- bis head, thus say
ing his life. The shot passed through
his left arm near the shoulder, carrying
away’some of the flesh. Blanck, who was quite
unaware of Hunter's presence, did not muve,
and received three shot iu hts head. It plowed
a furrow on the top of bis head, scattering the
hraio. He was struck on the side and near the
throat. The fatal shot, however, was through
the brain. Death occurred instantaneously.
The man fell back without uttering a worn.
George immediately rushed on Hunter, and the
men grappled. The other darkies rushed to
George’s assistance and mauled Hunter pretty
severely. At last, however, Hunter managed
to make his escape, aud was a free man until 10
o’clock this morning, when he was arrested by
a police officer, who found him hiding in the
cellar of his house.
AN UNENVIABLE RECORD.
Special Dispatch to The Tricune.
Bisstabck. D. T., July 12.—The Hon. Ansley
Gray, formerly of Milwaukee and Madison, and
late of Bismark, and the Dakota Legislature, Is
wantea in the Black Hills as well as In Chicago.
When he was elected to the Legislature he was
about broke, and had to mortgage his per diem
in advance to reach Tankion. At Yankton he
led his usual fast life, and presided over the
House occasionally when he was too drunk to
know what be was doing. He left town in debt,
and started for Deadwood, via Milwaukee,
drawing several fraudulent chocks on his way
against the Bank of' Bismarck, where he had
never deposited a dollar, but happened to own
one of that bank’s check-books with his name
on it. At Omaha he took in a friend or two.
In Deadwood he settled,'but his convivial style
of living soon wrecked all prospective practiceat
the Bar, and after exhausting his credit there ho
drew a draft on Postmaster Adams upon a
false showing. He drew another for §2OO, and
got SheriH Manning, of Deadwood, a fellow-
Democrat, to indorse. Manning was duped by
a telegram that Gray’s old partner sent from
Bismarck upon Gray’s telegraphing the request,
saying that Gray’s check for §2OO would be hon
ored by him. Now Manning sends instructions
to prosecute criminally to the bitter end.
From Deadwood, Gray went to Bismarck, and
stopped a few weeks. From here he started
East. • At Detroit City, Minn., he drew three
cnccks against no funds, and got them cashed.
In St. Paul be made two attempts and failed.
In Chicago he victimized Callahan & Co., John
Morris, R. H. Mills. Frank Starkweather,-and C.
J. W. Lentz. In Milwaukee be struck his uncle,
Robert Ansley, twice. Checks come bv express
for collection, and almost every day telegraphic
inquiries arc received as to his standing. He
has gone through $20,000 belonging to his wife,
a young, beautiful, and accomplished woman,
who is left penniless in Bismarck.
BUFOKD.
Owenton, Ky., July 12.—The court assembled
at 9 o’clock. The session was occupied by ex
amining witnesses for the prosecution.
L. D. Holloway testified as to the. threats
made against Judges Elliott and Pryor, if his
case was decided unfavorably. The defense will
not offer testimony before Tuesday.
The Court reassembled at 2 n. m., several wit
nesses for the prosecution being sworn, and by
3 o’clock all the testimony for the prosecution
was comolcted. Among the witnesses, Maj.
Stanton, of the Kentucky Yeoman, for the pros
ecution, was one of the first to testify. He
said he saw Buford a few moments after the
shooting. He (Buford) said he intended to go
snipe-snooting, but bad given it up.
Met Judge Elliott, asked him it he
would go snipe-shooting. He then asked
him to take a drink, and then shot him. He
thought I would treat him with as much cour
tesy as he showed his sister when he robbed and
murdered her. He swore ho would gain the
suit or die with her. This, with the testimony
of a few others which corroborated the above,
closed the case for the Commonwealth, and
Judge Curtis presented the case for the defense.
He was. however, taken suddenly ill from the
effects of the heat, which abruptly terminated
his speech. Gen. Abe Buford’s sworn testimony
chiefiy regarded hereditary insanity, and showed
that the family, from the intermarriage with
cousins, were generally affected. This, witn
evidence of an uninteresting nature, closed the
proceedings, and thecourt adjourned until Mon
day morning.

special Dispatch to The Tribune.
Toronto, July 12.—t0-day being the ISSth
anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne, the
Orangemenot this city and vicinity turned out
with unusual strength. All the forenoon the
principal streets were crowded by citizens, and
people from the surrounding neighborhoods
came attired in the gay costume of the Orange
Order, while others promenaded in civilian
dress, accompanied by their ladies, nearly all of
whom gave some indication, by dress or bouquet,
of their being participants in the festivities of
the day. Every train brought into the city
large numbers of excursionists, many of them
being members of country lodges. As the
morning waned, the lodges commenced to move
towards the storting-point for the purpose of
forming into line, and the scene presented was
an interesting one,—the shrill piping of the
flfe-and-drum bauds, the blare of Hie brass
bands, and the rushing hither • and thither of
neatly costumed individuals and gaily capari
soned horsemen, all tending to add additional
interest and pleasure to the picture. As lodge
after lodge arrived upon the field, the enthusi
asm increased, the spectators ’themselves being
apparently ' seized with a fervent desire
to take part in the proceedings. fn the proces
sion. which moved off about noon, there were
thirty-three Orange lodges, four lodges of the
Royal Blade Institution, six lodges of Young
Britons, and four lodges of ’Prentice Bovs, all
belonging to this city, besides a great many
lodges from the surrounding country, the whole
numbering about 5,000 brethren. After march
ing through' the principal streets, which were
thronged with spectators, they proceeded to the
Queen’s Park, where they were addressed by
Bros. William Johnston, of Ballykilbeg,
and Hunt W.' Chamber, delegates from

CASUALTIES.
THE EASTERN STORM.
Special Dispatch to The Tribune.
Cincinnati, 0., July 12.—Wind and rain
storms of great violence have visited sections
of Central .and Southern Ohio during the past
forty-eight hours.' At Kenton several houses
were unroofed. The low lands along the
Sciota were flooded, and considerable damage
was done to crops. At Mansfield seven build
ings were damaged, but the most serious
damage was done to wheat
the county, much of which had been
just cut, and was standing in the shuck. Oats,
barlev, and other crops were in many localities
laid fiat upon the ground. Through .Logan and
Champaign Counties the path of the storm, ten
miles broad, is strewn with wrecks of bams and
trees. Growing crops are prostrate. The
damage to oats, corn, and hay is- reported to be
heavy, but a few days of fair weather will repair
much of it.
Complaints are beard from Champaign
County of wheat sprouting in the shock.
Thousands of acres in Central Ohio are covered
with water or with mud and sand left by the
sudden torrents.
Cincinnati, 0., July 12.—Advices from points
in the interior and eastern portions of the Stale
indicate that the storm last evening was a very
severe one, and in many instances its effects
were disastrous. It approached Ohio from the
ilortU and northwest, maintained a south and
southwestern direction, and seemed to have
spent its force when it reached Southern
Pennsylvania. , „ „ . , t
- At Mansfield the hardware store of P. Schull
was unroofed, the roof being carried 150 feet,
demolishing a barn and a beer saloon. Smith’s
Opera-House was partially unroofed. The dam

ACCIBENTAt/LT. SHOT.
New Yoke, July 12.—The inquest into the
shooting of John F. Seymour,
law of Bishop Seymour, began to-day.
-Many persons were present, besides thirty-three
witnesses. The testimony of Melancton Lloyd
Wooisey, a student in the seminary, was, in sub
stance, that he was aroused late in the night by
the screaming of a female, and jumped up and
opened the shutters and heard two or three
yokes., The first words he heard were, “Shut
your mouth,” in the voice of a man; then fol
lowed the cry of “murder” from the woman.
Then awomah ran down the path along Twenty
first Street, towards Ninth avenue, nearly op
posite his window. Some one called out “ Catch
her,” and she then ran back. The woman then
cried out. “Students, come, out.” He dressed
himself and went out and saw people gathered
about Mr. Seymour’s body.
Bishop Seymour told the story of finding the
body of his brother-in-law.
Paul Strecks, tutor, affirmed that the boy
only fired a blank cartridge from the Seminary
window, and other witnesses testified to firing
from the window.
The jury returned a verdict that Mr. Seymour
came to his death from a pistol-shot wound ac
cidentally received at the hands of some person
unknown in the grounds of the Theological
Seminary on the night of the 3d of July.

NEW YORK RAILROADS.
Interesting Testimony Given Before the
Legislative Investigating Committee.
Special Visvateh to The Tribune.
New Tore, July 12.—Mr. William Pitt Sher
man, former Treasurer of theErle Railway Com
pany, gave some interesting testimony before
the Assembly Railroad Committee to-day with
regard to the Company’s securities. He said
the par value of the available securities was
§2,773,300, and their borrowing power or value
about 51,000,000. In 1873 two dividends of
per cent each were paid on the common stock,
out of tnnds realized from the sale of bonds.
Mr. Shipman cross-examined the witness
with regard to his relations with
President Jewett, and endeavored to show
that he had been ignominiously discharged from
the Company’s employ, and that, being actu
ated by malice, his testimony was unreliable.
'Hie witness denied that he was discharged, but
said he resigned because his motives were mis
construed, and the service had become un pleas
ant to bins*
Alexander Robertson, an accountant, teati
fled that he was the author of an article in the
A'oWA American Saiew on “The Mysteries of
Railway Accounting.” He had examined the
accounts of the Erie Railway Receivership.
There were entries in the books that he believed
to be improper. There was about 58,000,0000
interest charged up and credited on the Re
ceivers nooks to the account of proilt and loss.
It had the effect of producing on the Receiver’s
ledger a credit balance to profit-aud-loss ac
count of some $6,303,013, when the actual def
icit in October, 1877, was between $2,000,000
and $3,000,000. The profit-and-loss account
proper showed a credit balance of 83,363,012,
which meant that the Company had gained that
amount in twenty-eight months under the Re
ceiver’s management, while the truth was that
the Company had lost $2,500,000 during that
U Question— What is the difference between the
li.fu.pr exhibits and the report to the State En
gineer? Answer—The amount of interest im
properly charged was $3,871,271. The reports
of 1872 to 1877 inclusive arc erroneous, and mis
leading as to the credits embraced in the float
ing-deSt statements. In the report for 1877 it
appears that $1,409,471 was paid for interest.
The report to the Coart by the Re
ceiver .states that there was paid
$1 557,451. In the same report the funded debt,
as it existed Sent. 30, 1871, was reported as
$54,271,814, omitting altogether the accrued
and defaulted interest, which properly formed
an integral part of the funded debt. In the
same report the floating debt was reported at
$1,887,316, and is explained as consisting of
“ loans and bills payable.” It should have been
stated at 84,861,570. 1 believe the law of the
State is defective in its requirements as to
these reports to the State Engineer, and should
reouire a balance-sheet to be furnished with the
annual report, which should not be a sheet
made no at the discretion of the Company s
accountant, but a literal transcript of what is
known as the trial balance. ■ . ...
o How much did the funded debt of the
Company increase from 1863 to 1863, the begin
ning of the Gouldilsk administration?. A.—
Sept, 30,1863, It was 830,083,000; Sept. 30,1868,
It was *23,396,800.
Q. —What was the increase of the funded
debt! A.—Three million dollars,
Q.—From IST2 to 1879 what was the increase
in that debt! A.—lt was $18,000,000. The in
crease in the construction account from 1863 to
186 S was $17,500,000. From 1863 to 1572 it in
creased $5,000,000; from 1873 to 3578 it in
creased $0,500,000, excluding all items not be
longing properly to it.
Mr. Sterne—So that in this particular the
adage seems true that the Receiver is worse
tban the thief.
The • witness—The increase in the capital
stock account from 1863 to 1868 was $26,000,-
000, and the increase in the construction ac
count was $17,000,000. The increase from ISC3
to 1873 in the capital stock and funded debt ac
counts was $43,000,000. The increase in the
construction account proper was $5,000,000 in
the same period, leaving $35,000,000 as a dilfer
ereoce which did not go into construction from
IS?3 to 1878. The increase in the capital stock
and fnndcd debt accounts was $28,000,000, and
the construction account was increased nearly
$10,000,000 from May 1873 to May I^7B.
Q. —In what respect arc the reports of the
New Xork Central Railroad to the State En
gineer incorrect. A.—They are incorrect as
to the amounts given from year to year under
head of 4 "Construction Account.” if the re
ports are true it would appear that in a period
of ten years the New York Central Railroad
Company paid out for construction about sll,-
000,000 more than they received. In 45 Poor’s
Manual” for the vear ending Sept.
30, 1873, one ot * the items in
the debit side is stated as| “Reserve
fund, $33,077,360,” an amount equal to the
watering of the stock. I assume {that, when
they watered the stock to the extent of $44,-
000,000, they made a fictitious debit account
against the credit of the stock watered, and
called it “Reserve Fund.” I know that the
earnings of the Company have not been enough
to warrant an increase of the construction ac
count, and there has been a writing off
yearly from this fictitious account into
the construction account of $1,000,000t0 $2,000,-
000 a year. I have written up a set of books to
ascertain whether or not there is a reserve fund,
and 1 have come to the conclusion that the re
serve fund is a fiction. My attention was first
drawn to it by observing the ambiguity of the
items and figures in the manual.

TASCOTT <Ss SON’S.
An explosion in the paint and color works of
J. B. Tascott & Sons, Nos. 19 ana 21 South
Canal street, at 11:30 yesterday morning, caused
an alarm from Box No. 279, and
the rapid spread of the flames
necessitated the sounding of 2-11, since it
looked as if more than the district engines
would he needed. The structure, which was
formerly used as a variety theatre, is a lumber
pile, veneered with brick, and its contents
being for the most part highly inflammable it
was surprising that the Fire Department saved
whatthev did,—about two-thirds of the build
ing, halt the stock, and all the machinery,
though the latter was somewhat damaged. The
iirm owned everything, and place their loss at

The explosion was caused Dy an accumulation
of cases arising from the use of benzine in mix
inc paint.’ There were a dozen employes in the
mixing-room, but all escaped without injury
except James Moran, who was nearest the fur
nace with which the cases came in contact. His
board and eye-brows were singed, and his face
slightlr, and his hands and arms up to the el
bows badly scorched. After being attended to

BELLIGERENT STEERS.
A Herd of Texas Steer* Take Possession of
the Streets of Harlem and Make Things "
lively for a Time.
Special Dispatch to The TrOssac-
New Tore, July 12.— The police 'of the Twen
ty-third Precinct, at Harlem, battled for three
hours with a herd of Texas steers. Nine of the
enemy were captured and secured in a brewer’s
yard, and three were killed. Herman Rosenthal
was knocked down and lost a tooth. Will
iam Osborne was severely bruised about
the shoulders and back. There was much ex
citement, and the police reserve was called out.
One large fellow with long horns set out on an
expedition no Avenue A, and drove every
thing before him. Pursued by a dozen police
men and a crowd of men and . boys,
the bewildered steer retreated into a vacant
lot, where William Osborne threw a lassoo over
his horns' and undertook to capture him. The
animal made a savage plunge -at Osborne,
and tossed him ten ' feet in the
air. Then he rushed out of the in
dosure, and ran up the avenue,
the crowd scattering before him, while the po-
Tice followed, and fired their revolvers. A
young woman, taking a baby out in a carriage,
deserted the child and ran sercatmn;: into the
nearest store. The steer walked quietly
up to the carnage, snuffed the baby
contemptuously, and kept op. the
animal then made a furious charge on an Ice
wagon team, burying bis horns in the entrails
of the nearest horse- The blood spurted, and
the victim toon expired In agony." Another
valuable animal bad been so severe
ly gored that death was likely to fol
low, when John Lalor, a driver,
interfered, and tried to seize the steer by the
horns and throw him. His temerity well mgh
cost him his life. The Texan caught his horns
in his assailant’s dothtng, tossed him
neatly over his head, and walked off.
At length an ice-man, sheltering him
self behind a friendly fence, felled the
steer to the earth with three blows of an <“•
Similar scenes of excitement were enacted in
the neighboring streets, and the police and citi
zens had a busy time of it, until the entire herd
had either been killed or captured.

THE POLICE.
Reduction of Pay.
There was quite a stir in police circles yester
day, though very little of it came to the surface. t
It appears, that all of the men signed an agree
ment to stand a reduction of salary, but an ex
amination of the document shows that it was
not the instrument which came from the Law*
Deoartment and has been published. Really,
it was a very different thin?, Uic essential differ
ence being that the paragraph in the original
providing that, in consideration of the men
signing it, they should not be discharged, has
been omitted. It reads as follows:
This agreement, made July 1, 1879, by and be
tween the undersigned members of the. Police
force of the City of Chicago and the City of Chi
cago— ’
Witnewetb, That whereas, since the passage of
the different Aporooriatioa ordinances of the Gift
of Chicago for the year 1879, In which ordinances
wore fixed the salaries of members of the Police
force or Department, the General Assembly of tho *
State enacted a law which took effect July 1, 1879,
in and bv which the nncollected taxes of the Clrv
of Chicago, appropriated and levied for the year
1879 cannot be anticipated beyond 75 per cent or
the total amount of the levy of the taxes for the
rear 1379; and whereof. In view of suohlaw, and
ihe present financial condition of the city. It is
necessary that the expenses of the City Police De
partment shall be reduced, which can ba accom
plished only br reducing the salaries of members
of the force, or by discharging some of the mem
bers of the force.
ISow, therefore. In consideration of the premises,
and in further consideration of SI in hand paid to
each one of us, the receipt whereof is hereby ac
knowledged, we jointly and severally acree to re
ceive, in full payment for onr services as members
of aaid Police Department our salaries as Hied by
the Appropriation ordinance for the half year
commencing .Inly 1, 1870, and ending Dec. 81,
1879, leas 5 per cent thereof; hereby releasing to
the said City of Chicago 5 per cent of said salaries
for the said half year.
In witness whereof, we have hereto act our hands
and seals the day and year first above written.
No one appears to know who changed the
document, and it is believed that it was largely
signed on the supposition that the signing of it
would save any discharges. The change has
been made, however, and for no other purpose
than to admit of discharging certain men, ami
the trick being discovered there was last even
ing considerable commotion in police
The men arc powerless, however, and afraid to
sav much, but they are keeping up a great
thinking. The effect of the thing cannot bo
loretold, but it is safe to predict that It will not
do the Department any good, flic work ot
discbarging.it is said, will be speedily com
menced, and soon thereafter there will be a
howl when other men will be put on the force,
thus enabling the Mavor to keep his promises
to some of bis ticket-peddlers. This appears to
baye been the meaning of tbe whole movement
from the beginning.
