Ch AKtiK Dismissed.?Policeman
John Proctor and William Lyles were
before Mayor Simpson last night on a
charge preferred against them by Lieut.
James Smith, for dereliction of duty in j
not answering the signal wiiistles be- j
tween three and four o'clock yesterday
morning. Lieutenant Smith last night
stated that he left the stal ion-house
about .'!:?'"< i o'clock, and whau on the 1
corner of Prioce and Henry streets blew
his first whistle, aud repeated the sig- j
nal ou the corners of Prince and
Fayette, Prince and West, Cameron j
and Payne, Fayette aud Cameron, and I
Henry aud Cameron streets, but re?
ceived no answer from the police- j
men patrolling the western dis
trict. He arrived at the sta
station house about 4:30 o'clock, or
thereabouts, and about ?fteen miuute< j
later Policeman Proctor reported. !
a number of witnesses were ex?
amined, wro-e evidence showeu !
that the Lieutenant had blown the j
whistles, which were heard and answer- j
od by policemen ou their heats. Cher
witnesses .stated that they held
communications with the police?
men tirst named about the hours
when the signals wore sounded.
Mr. Parks, of the Pennsylvania Rail?
road. w>is outdoors between 3 o'clock
aud 5 o'clock a. m. and beard no whis?
tle, except the one blown immediately
in his presence. He saw ami talked
with Officers Proctor aud Lyles at
about 3:30o'clock a. m. They were then
doing the western p:irt of their beat.
Mr. Ballenger gave tho same evidence.
Tho Mayor, after reviewing the evi?
dence, stated that he saw no evidence
which could sustain the charge, and
honorably dismissed the two policemen
Lieut. Smith informed the Mayor that
ho was merely discharging the duties
imposed upon htm by the police regu?
lations, and th>it ho had no feeling/what- j
ever iu the matter, personal or other?
wise. The Mayor commended the
Lieutenant for discharging tbe duties of
bis office. During the trial the Mayor
said that wind and raiu often had the
effect of deadening the sound of whis?
Tiio Mayor in exonerating the men
said: "The evidence proves thut the
signal whistle was blown at the corners
and at the tunes mentioned by witness
and that the accused did not respond,
thus establishing the prima facie
grounds lor presuming a neglect of
duty, but such grounds cannot be held
as tenable when positively and thor?
oughly controverted by the testimony
of respectable witnesses ; as in the case
of a receipted hill not being conclusive
evidence of its payment, so is the fail
tire of any utlicer to hear his superior's
signal not conclusive of culpable neg?
lect, if such failure be satisfactorily ex?
plained. Disinterested and truthful
men on the street within two blocks of
the signal failed to hear whistles.
Witnesses of excellent character saw
the accused officers performing their
duties at 3:80, 1:15and4:30o'clock a.m.
A wbisle, therefore, whose sounds are
more or less impeded, impaired and
disturbed by the environments of a
rainy morning, should not and canuot
be accorded the same consideration as
the sworn evidence of our citizens."

Great Ciean Dd Sale of Dress Gods.
Early in the spring we put a large line of 50c goods on our
25c counter, and goods from 50c to 75c on our 39c counter.
They met with ready appreciation and are nearly closed out.
We want every piece of them to go so we put the prices now
to 20 and 25c.
Our fir.e 15c Madras and Ginghams are now all \ 2l/zc
A large range of new wash goods from 5c to 12^c arc
opening up during this week.
Some special values in 19c fancy ribbons.
New table linen at 50c, 60c and 75c.
When we opened up our rug sale two weeks ago we
knew it was not rug season, but the values made it so, and we
have made large inroads into the lot. On many of these
goods no duplicates are obtainable. So buy now. Large
houses in New York are asking for the same goods nearly
twenty-live per cent, advance over our prices.
