A second amended and supplemental bill was filed yesterday In tbo Circuit Court In tho ease of Fames vs. Tho Stale Havings Institution ami others. Tbo tlrsl supplemental bill (lied some time ago was for tho purpose of fixing tho liability of tho stockholders of tbo collapsed institution, and In this second amended bill thocomplaluants, after tho usual historical Introduction, state that by tbo ninth section of tbo bank’s charter each stockholder Is liable to tbo full amount of his slock to tbo sav logs and trust funds, for all losses which may occur while bo is a stockholder, and that such liability continues fur six months after ho has disposed of bis stock. This liability is one fur tbo bencllt of tho trust funds, ami not for tbo advantage of any individual creditors, and it can only bo enforced In a court of ciptlty, for tho equal benefit of all persons Interested. Tho following are tbo parties who nro liable under tbls section, together with tho amount of slock held by them: 1). I). Spencer W. H. Turner. F. A. Hay Turner & Hay F. A. Newton C. U.Shodd Daniel Goodwin, Jr, ItbodnC. Kidder.... J. Q. Adams Robert bayard Caroline 8. Ely D. S. Smith r.,000 A. 0. Guild KUDO C.O. Bulkloy About sixty suits have boon begun by Individ ual creditors against dlirorcnt stockholders to enforce this liability, but every one of tho plaint iffs in these suits has recognized the validity of tbo assignment to Judge Otis, tho Receiver, by accepting tbo payment of dividends on his claim. It Is alleged that by this step tho plaint- HTs in these suits are estopped from prosecut ing such litigation, and must take their chances on an equal footing with the rest. Complainants therefore ask that tbo liability of the stockhold ers may bo enforced, that tbo Receiver may bo empowered to proceed at onco against thorn, and that those creditors who have begun Indi vidual suits against different stockholders may bo restrained from prosecuting tho same, A IIAUD CONTRACT. Judge Blodgett was engaged yesterday in bearing tho case of J. it. Johnson for tho use of TbatcberS. Johnson against Charles D. Ilamlll, to recover damages fur breach of a lard con tract. It seems that In Juno. IK?2. .1. It. Johnson induced Ilamlll, a clerk In thoolliccof Howard Priestley J; Co., to slim a contract for tho pur chase of fidu tierces of hint, duliverabln in 187.1. Hiunlll at llrst refused, but Johnson represented Unit It was for his own accommodation and that Ilamlll should not bo liable, and tho contract should bo canceled tho next day. .1. 11. Johnson, however, really made tho sale for Ids brother, T. S. Johnson, of Cincinnati, ami sued him on tho contract, after representing to Ilamlll that It was canceled and destroyed. After thoro had (icon a loss of $2.50J on the lard, and tbo lard had been tendered to Hamdl and refused, T. S. Johnson brought suit on tho contract In his brother's name. It was undisputed that tho agreement was tho contract should never be executed, but pUilutltT claimed tho sale was made under tho rules of tho Hoard of Trade by J. U. Johnson and was valid. On tho other hand, It was In sisted that tho contract was not negotiable, and ns such was subject to all tbo euultloa existing between tho original pantos. An executory contract depending on u eontlngoney fur Its validity could not bo assigned bo ns to convoy any rights. Tho east) wan beard and taken under advisement. TUB STREET-CAR LICENSE CASES. Tho amended bills In tho stroot-cnr company license cases wero tiled yesterday before Judge Drummond In accordance with thu agreement made last week.

THE RAILROADS AND THE PEOPLE. 7b tin Editor of Tin Chicago Tribune. CntOAno, March U.—Jliiny years ago, In n let ter to Mr. Orton, you said timt the •• common carriers wero exercising tho extraordinary and dangerous privilege of dictating both sides of the bargain, . . . tho object being to reduce tho public to tbo singlualtermitlvoof paying tho demand or doing without the service; of burn ing their grain, and going on foot, or submitting to tho dictated exaction. This system of un curbed eorporutu rapacity is tyranny pure mid adulterated; it Is slavery In another guise; it is tbo great evil of tbo present amt future until It bo curbed or killed as slavery was.” Tlmo has shown (but the general apa(b> on this KiibjceUs like that formerly prevailing In respect to the slavuiuiiding oligarchy, amt a like deplorable result Is threatened. Thu railroad despots have consolidated or com bined tho principal railroads throughout ihu country. This vast power Is confederated with thu telegraph, express, coal, and other great corporations much as thoHtamlard Oil Company, lor example), and even huiio political agencies. Thu object boldly avowed Is to levy on ihu busi ness of tho country all the oxaetlomt that It will bear, tho conspirators being the solo Judges of what It will War, and tho people being tbolr tributaries. Tho President uf the Central Pa clllu llallroad declares thu decisions of tho Supremo Court of thu United States In what aru culled thu (Imager cases, which eases plainly slate tho legal method of regulating these corporations, ••/Inyninl Wofutanis of the jinmdp/ea of fitc u«r rnmirm,"— meaning, doubtless, thu principles of Ihulr treedom to plunder the public. TbuPresi dent of thu Illinois Central llnllroad—which through foreign (?) Inlliieneu obtained from our I.eglslaluro a grant of the lake sburu and u mile out Into ihu hari>ur—has lately warned that branch uf thu llovcrmnent not to attempt to regulate railroads, onu ol the penalties of which Interlercneu would bo the turning mil of em ployment of the greater portion of lou.uoo labor ing-men. Now, a free people wilt obey laws, but will not recognize even governments as (huir masters, mneh less railroads, which, although they have been g!*od servants. Imvu been much overpaid, if they dendo the Huprcmu Court, what need Is tbero of Investigations to prove that they avoid regulation by u Hoard of uullruad Commission ers? Tho abuses and outrages perpetrated by them me so imturluns that It Is u waste of time to re count them, and It Is useless tu try to estimate Ihu damage in dollars and cents whllu they keep secret the main facts un which such an estimate must bu bused, such as tho real vuluu uf thu property actually und necessarily Invested In tuuir business, the necessary cost of the service, andi tbolr iueuutu front all sources. Without such data each sldo nitty produce Itgurcs to sup port any theory whatever. Hut let us cuuilder some of thu consequences THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 1881—TWELVE PAGES. of railroad management (hiring tho past few years. In .Scrllmcrs Jf i[/«i:(»i’s fop Uceemtier last, mention is made of six railroad magnates who have accumulated prlvato fortunes ofsomo three hundred million dollars in all. Who can estimate tho number who have amassed lesser fortunes merely by reason of tholr eoutioctlou with corporate monopolies leagued together lo extort “all tho lrathe will hear,” building up all things which minister lo Hietr power, and destroying all that oppose? White tho rich am thus growing richer Itv rapacity, tho poor (and those In moderate elreomstmicesi are growing poorer, because of the Increase In prices of pro visions, fuel, and all necessaries transported by rail. If tho wealth of tho country and Hio powers of Hio railroads and telegraphs by such means get Into a few hands, thorn will bo nu Irrepressi ble conlllcl between labor nml capital. The un just levy of a petty tribute caused tho .((evolu tion, and tho spirit of resistance to oppression still lives. Its modu of manifestation should bo through lawful agencies, but, if they are 100 long postponed or ore snifereil to fail, Hio op portunity for which tho Communists say they are waiting will have come. In furtherance of an earnest attempt for a quiet mid legal solution of those dilllciiltlcs tho National Anil-Monopoly I.ciiguc has been formed, and Its purposes are commendable by all public-spirited citizen'.

One of tho most remarkable private soldiers on cither side In tho late War was n young man named Tom Kelley, a private In tho Twenty second Mlehltnm Infantry. Tho I‘enmrkntilo man began with his build. Ho had arms a full hand longer than any man who could be found. Ho had no more backbone ihitu n snake,•and could almost tlo himself in a knot, lie could tell tho dale on a silver dollar held up twenty feet away, and ho could hear every word of a con versation In n common tone of voice across n street. Ho could run a half mile ns fast ns any horse could gallop, and there was a standing offer of $lO to any man who eimid hold him down. On a but of a box of sardines he once passed six sentinels within an hour. On another occasion ho entered tho Colonel’s tent and brought away that ollleer’s hoots. When Tom’s remarkable qnalltlcaltons were discovered lie was detailed as a Seoul and spy, and wits changed from one department to another. In tlto capacity of spy he entered Richmond three times. He entered Vicksburg and preached a sermon to the soldiers n week before tho surrender. Hu was In Now Orleans live days before that oily wits taken. He was a man who Hrntly believed that ho could not bo killed by an enemy, amt he governed his move ments accordingly. While under the ordersnf Clen. Hooker, Kelley proved on several occasions (hat he could see furthorwlth the naked eye-than an.v'olllcur could with a Held-glass. If lie could get a plaee of concealment within fifty feet of a picket, he could catch the countersign. lie visited Look nut. Mountain. Intending to spike as many of tho Confederate guns as possible. Ills disguise was that of n tanner who had been driven from homo by tho Union forces. The enemy some how got suspicions of him, and ho was placed In the guard-house for (he night. There was a sentinel at the door, nml others near by standing guard over guns and stores, but it was all the same to Kelley. With an old tin plate for use as shovel nml scoop be burrowed nut at tho back mid of tho building.and walked up to two pieces of artillery amt spiked both Indore any alarm was raised. When the sentinels began Hrliignt him, ho mu out of camp, but before he was clear of it lie hud been lin’d on fifty times. Kelley was once captured when asleep by .Mis souri guerrillas. When he opened his eyes ho was surrounded by live or six men on foot and others In the saddle. It was tinder a tree In mi open Held, and he hud been trucked by u dog. As lie rose up at tholr command, he resorted to bis wonderful skill ns a gymnast, iiy dodging and twisting ami Jumping, he got out of the crowd, pulled a man off his saddle and would Imvu escaped bud not the dog fastened to his leg. He was then put under guard inn log house with only ouc-i-oom. Two sentinels sttt at tho door with revolvers hi their li.tmN, and kept watch of his every movement. After tin hour or two Kelley npproaehud us If to offer them tobacco, and jumped elenr over their heads like a deer. He. had half a mile of open Held to cross, and he crossed It under the lire of a score of muskets and revolvers without being hit. ibtrlng his three years nnd a half In the service Kelley captured lltty-two Confederates nml turned them over us prisoners. He himself was captured and escaped live times. As n spy he entered more titan thirty Confederate camps tmd forts. Ho was Hrednpon at least I,eon times, and yet was never wounded. He said (hat he would never die by the hands of tin enemy, end his prophecy came true. In tho last year of 'he War. while bringing n captured Confederate scout into camp, both were killed within forty rods of tho Union lines by u bolt of lightning. THE ‘•.ESTHETES,” London Lrffrr.

Hrnest d'llervllly was tho llrst to suggest that the poet's friends should present him their congratulations on his With birthday, but he meant that this should bo done ipiletly and without ostentation. Unfurl nnalely a little half-penny newspaper got wind of the Idea, and an "etTeoilvo” committee, out of opposition to' tho Committee of Honor, with which It declined to confer, drew up u program as motley us It was preten tious. Now. everybody knows hoar averse tho .Master Is to display, su that I shall astonish no body by telling that hu almost mudo up his mind to write to (he Parnassians, ** Please don’t 1" Hut his scruples of modesty have been, over come; it might mortify "his beloved children" were lie to deellno their homage, and then ho felt, like every one else, that whatever absurdi ties tho Committee may be guilty all would bo dfaced by tho prestige of his name; all would be forgotten in tbo sincere nneuilun with which In* Inspires Ids fellow-countrymen. Most people have read "I.es Mlsfirablcs," ami will remember that line of /•'iJidliic'ssoiig: be* blenels imhil Idem, los rotes sunt roses. Few know Unit it was written by Victor llngoas a sort of pretest against tbo ens o nmry ortho grafy of the word " bUmet," which is meaning less, whereas "iilenut" indicates the color of tho llnwer. It is tho souvenir of this, and of tho f'roal service thereby rendered to the French miguago, which dictated to tho Committee l heir select ion id' tho colors fur nil the draperies, banners, bompiets, and other accessories of the ceremony. A rose and a hlonoi—l bullevo bleuot Is the dower known ns blue-bottle—fastened by bine and pink ribbons. i\n which were printed tiio above nnoted lino in pink letters on timblno ground, and In blue letters on tiio pink ground, were distributed to tbo ood Commissaries in trusted with tho management of tho procession.

All those acts might have been omitted, and their omission have passed unnoticed In contemplation of tho Inde scribable enthusiasm of tho crowds, who from almost daybreak began to assemble hi tho avu tine and In tin* neighboring streets. All the workingmen's associations took part in the procession, of which some Idea may bn formed from tho following list of corporations which were represented by delegates: Tho wateh makors, tho journeymen bakers, tho bakers of extra quality bread—“pains do luxe"—thu Fiunos-Comlnl#. the dyers and scourers, com mercial mid manufacturing clerks, turners, printers, stokers, machinists, bottlers and barrel-makers, galosh-matters, makers of stop cocks. parqueters; paper-makers und rulers, carpenters, tilers, tailors, plumbers, and Klne-layers. Kaeh of those guilds had Its respective banner, and all hnff avoided, with cxqulsit tact and delicacy, every emblem which might bo misinterpreted Into n political fllg nihcatloti. Tho object was, universally, to do honor to thu pout, and It was'this deslro which was the chief motive of tho organizers In (heir selection of the obligatory pink and rose Instead of the mure brilliant scarlet advised by a'few who forgot that thu end In view was hom age to one whoso profession Is peace mid good wdl to all.
