The Comedy Theatbb.—This theatre,
SO long under the ban of ill-luck, has scored an
other success under the present management of
Mr. Townsend Percy, with “A Battle of Ink/'and
the house is crowded nightly. Mackay’s moments
of humor convulse the audience, and petite Ida
Mulle delights with her singing and naive ways.
'The sign “standing room only” has become a fix
ture at the door of this little temple, which may
■never more, let us hope, require fumigation on
account of the presence of the “Wandering Jew.”
If Percy— otherwise Townsend—does not make the
“Comedy” win, then let its stage bo left to dark
ness, dust, and the ghost of Charley Backus.
Miss Alice Harrison, who has not been seen in
this city in two years, has been engaged as loading
lady at this theatre, and will appear shortly in the
title role in the new burlesque of “ Ixion.”
Standabd Theatbb. —Good dances are
the rule, and Suppe’s pleasant opera, “ A Trip to
Africa,'* still continues. The decoration of the the
atre lobby is now completed and the entrance is
peculiarly striking and attractive in color. The
contrast with the interior docoration and the house
is notably effective. " Gasparone,” Mil’.ocker’s last
successful opera, will probably be tho next produc
tion at this theatre, but from present indications
the necessity for a change is still in the future.
Star Theatre.—On Monday evening
last Mr. Barrett made his re-entre upon tho metro
politan stage, and was welcomed in his impersona
tion of Lanciotta in "Francesca da Rimini,” by an
audience which completely filled the theatre.
Hereafter, and before the close of his present
series of appearances, a more extended reference
will be made to Mr. Barrett and his earnest and
faithful work as one of the foremost of our living
dramatic artists.
His present engagement at the Star Theatre will
be the only one he will play in this city this season.
Before its close the popular actor will be seen in
“Hamlet,” "Richelieu,” "Julius Ceesar,” "Yorick’s
Xove,” an 1 ‘ T.e Blot on the 'Scutcheon.”
Globe Dime Museum.—Quartermasters
Burke and Clark and captain of the foretop Smith,
•the survivors of the Greely relief expedition, will
•be one of the attractions this week. They will tell
their story of the perils of the icy north. The Pa
risian bearded lady, Mdlle. De Rose; the seven long
haired Sutherland sisters; Happy Jack Sutton; the
living skeleton, John Dorrington; Ud h Fille, the
man with the big feet, and a host of other cur.osi
ities, animate and inanimate, will be seen. Stage
every hour. Special concerts this
afternoon and evening.
Paris. — Charles McGaughey’s Art
Views and bis very interesting lectures, in which
the anecdotal is deftly mingled with tho historical,
will have a beginning this evening at Tony Pastor's
Theatre —the subject being “Paris.” Tho views
are as varied and perfect as they are artistic. Mr.
-McGaughey is not only himself an artist but a trav
eler, to whom almost every portion of Europe is as
familiar as tho pictures which he has for so many
months presented here and in other American cities.
To all who desire to pass their evenings profitably
and which will be remembered w’ith pleasure, Mr.
MoCaughey offers an opportunity which it will be
well not to neglect.
Theiss’s Concerts.—Every week here
is the same as its predecessor, so far as crowded au
diences are concerned; but as to the performances,
each week brings something new to delight the
public. The orchestra give pleasing selections, all
the instrumental soloists are heard, and the vocal
ists, including the Twilight Quartette, add their
repertoire to the attractions. Admission is free.
Special concerts this afternoon and evening.
Gould’s Sans Souol —Tho manager
announces for the present week’s {performances an
tinmually attractive programme of specialties. Many
handsome young ladies will appear in song and
dance; several notable variety performers will add
to the interest of the entertainment; the orchestra
will repeat a series of popular selections, and all the
instrumental soloists will be heard as usual. The
Sans Souci is well conducted, and those who patron
ize it are sure to recognize its merit. Tho Sans
Souci is not open on Sunday.
The Mabille.—For the present week
thany additional novelties are announced in the
programme. Wrestling and sparring matches, va
riety specialties, singing and dancing, concerts by
the orchestra and other attractions are included.
After each performance there will be a ball, in which
all present can participate.
Elks’ Ball.—Monday night next,
January 12th, the eighteenth annual ball of the B.
P. C. Elks, at Madison Square Garden, will be an
eventful cu ' in the annals of tho order, and will
certainly be lhe best one ever given. This ball will
be more largely patronized by the theatrical pro
fession than any former ones, there being already
<hc assured attendance of over four hundred of the
most prominent ladies and gentlemen connected

BASEBALL NOTES.
“ Should President Lucas, of the Union Associa
tion, purchase the right and title of the Cleveland
League team, I do not see how he could be kept out
of that body,” says President McKnight of tho Amer
ican Association. “However, Ido not think ho has
done this, and am of the opinion that he wants to
be represented in the League from St. Louis in pref
erence to any other city. Vonderalie will not con
sent to this arrangement and consequently the only
way the League can let Lucas in is by breaking tho
five mile limit clause, in the tripartite agreement.
I do not think the League will attempt anything of
this kind, and if they do it will precipitate a war
between the League and American Association, and
place them in tho same attitude toward each other
as they wore three years ago. I hope nothing of
this kind will occur, however, as I think it better
for all parties that we should dwell together in
peace and harmony.”
The Toledo Baseball Company are about to sue
the St. Louis club for breach of agreement, growing
out of the Mullane case. The agreement iu writing
made by Vonderahe was that $2,500 was to be
paid to the Toledo club, one-half down, and the bal
ance when the three players, Mullane, Barkley and
Welch, signed. It was stipulated that S6OO was to
be deducted in case Mullane jumped, S4OO in case
Barkley did, and $250 if Welch. This shows that
Vonderahe was afraid all the time that some of
the players would go back on their word. Mullane
jumped, and President Colburn drew on ’Vonder
ahe the other day for $650, the balance due after
deducting the S6OO for Muilane’s conduct. If Von
derahe refuses to pay it the case will bo pressed,
and some developments of interest may be ex
pected.
The firm of John & James Dobson is desirousjof
organizing a store nine baseball tournament during
the season of the early dosing of the wholesale
stores. It is the intention of this house to cal!a
meeting early in March, for the purpose of effect
ing an organization. The following firms have sig
nified their intention ot sending delegates to the
meeting; H. B. Claflin, Tefft, Weiler & Co., Dunham
& Buckley, Bates, Reed A Cooley, Robt. K. Davis,
H. K. &F. B. Thurber, and Sloane & Co. Although
the conditions governing the tournament have not
been settled, it is more than probable that the club
winning tho most games will hold tho champion
ship off the store nines for the season.
President H. V. Lucas, of the Union Association,
was in Indianapolis on Monday last. While there
he said to a friend that he had been making arrange
ments to transfer the St. Louis and Cincinnati
Union clubs into tho League in place of Cleveland
and Detroit. The franchise of the Claveland Club
had been secured by himself, he said, and the Cin
cinnati-Detroit negotiations aro well under way to
a successful completion. It is a condition of this
arrangement that the black-listed Loaguo players
who deserted the League lor the Union aro to be
taken back in good standing.
The Board of Directors of the Eastern League of
professional baseball clubs, met in Philadelphia at
the Bingham House, on Wednesday, January 7th,
for the purpose of electing clubs to membership.
President Diddler called the meeting to order. The
organization was reported to be in a flourishing
condition, and six clubs now compose the League,
viz.: National, Newark, Jersey Cily,.Trenton. Vir
ginia and Norfolk. It is expected that Hartford will
apply for admission at the next meeting.
Here is what Galvin, of the thinks of the
new rule: “ The only pitcher 1 know of who has his
foot off the ground when he pitches the ball is Jaek
Jones. I am in favor of a return to the straight
arm the same style that was in vogue
when Wolters, Pabor, Spalding and Mcßride were
in their prime- The League can make any rule
they choose. It will make no difference to me. I
can stand on my head, if necessary, and pitch.”
The firm of John and James Dobson have organ
ized the following nine which will represent the
house on the ball field the coming season. The
team is a strong one both in batting and fielding.
Conway, pitcher; John Loe, catcher; (Joseph Hil
lock. first base; Thomas Manning, second base;
William Sloat, third base; William jjMoore, short
stop; Daniel Hovey, left field; Geo. Betzig, right
field; Michael Smith, centre field.
The stockholders of the Detroit Baseball Associa
tion held a meeting in Detroit, January 7. It was
decided to remain in the League, if not voted out
by the Board of Directors of the League. William E:
Chittenden was elected delegate, and attended the
special meeting of the National League, which was
held yesterday at the Filth Avenue Hotel. The
meeting was secret, no reporters were admitted.
The Brooklyn Club will be managed by Hackett,
late of the Cleveland League Club, and he has suc
ceeded in signing seven of that organization; they
are, Harkins, Bushong, Hotaling, Phillips, Pinckney,
Kreig and Smith. A good sum is s lid to have been
paid for these players. This assures a strong team
for Brooklyn. The other players so far signed aro
Hayes, Swart wood, Cassidy and Terry.
The difference between Lew Simmons and his two
partners in the Athletic Baseball Club, Messrs.
Schariz aud Masou have been settled. The Athletic
Club with its recent additions will come pretty near
taking the championship of the American Associa
tion. Barnie’s Baltimore Club will also have some
thing to say about toe matter.
Robinson, the third baseman of last year's Balti
more Unions, who has signed to play with tho St.
Louis Club, is kicking considerably about his con
trast, He stys it was not the understanding that
he was not to do any of the catching, and if Von
derahe insists on him filling the position, he would
like to have his release.
The New York State League will hold its annual
meeting at the Globe Hotel, Syracuse, March 18th,
1885. The League will be composed of eight clubs,
and play a schedule of 64 games. Anumoerof ex
hibition games will be played with the National,
League and American Association clubs during the
month of April.
The men with whom the Athletics expect to win
the Pennant this season are: Pitchers—Matthews,
Taylor, Cushman and Coleman. Catchers—Milli
gan, O’Brien, Fusselback. Base players—Stovey,
Stricker, Corey. Outfielders—Knight, Larkins,
Strief. Short stop—Houck.
A Cleveland local journal sensibly remarks: “If
thero can bo another su h a team organ zed as rep
resented Cleaveiand as in 1883, it will be the most
acceptable of ail. But the public, will not patronize
bad ball play ing. They want to see the home club
win and pay their money for the privilege.”
Among the players who are advertising for situ
ations are Blakiston and Birchall; Dave Eggler and
John Richmond, and Barber, Beck and Henry of last
year’s Clevelands. The first named formerly played
with the Athletics.
There is a decided difference of opinion between
the two leading Cleveland dailies on the baseball
situation in that city, and the manner in which
they keep up the discussion is decidedly amusing.
Dayton, Ohio, has two bad parks, one of them
being outside the city limits to prevent interference
with Sunday games; but the chances are not very
bright lor Dayton having a team this year.
President Young’s plan of calling a balk on a
pitcher for every two violations of tho rule about
keeping both feet ou the ground, has not met with
approval by all of the eight clubs.
The Providence Club has not yet signed Gilligan,
and some of the patrons of the club are feeling
somewhat anxious lor the prospects of this year’s
team.
The American Association schedule meeting will
be held in Baltimore, March 2d and 3d. 9he dele
gates will thus be enabled to take in the inaugura
tion.
It is reported on good authority that the Cincin
nati and St. Louis Union Clubs will be elected to
membership at the March meeting of the League.
The Cincinnati American Club finished fifth in
the race, instead of fourth, as has b< en published.
The per centage was 623 iu 626 for St. Louis.

THE STORY TOLD BY AN OLD COUPLE IN
COURT.
Louis and Rachel Byrnes have been married fif
teen years. Both of them are proUy old codgers,
and fortunately, or unfortunately, they are without
children. Louis can’t support himself, much less
his wife. The city supports him the best part of
his life, while Rachel lives out.
Where she was living he came and rang the door
bell. She answered it. She asked the missus if she
could go out half an hour with the old man. The
missus gave her the desired request, half an hour,
with the injunction not to stay out all night.
Rachel, being introduced to the court, had better
tell her own story.
“W’hen we were alone in the street I said, ‘Louis,
I’ll give you two dollars I got as a New Year’s
present from the voung lady.’ ‘ All right,’ he says.
‘ Now I want you to go to the Mott Haven boat
house for half an hour,’ he says. ‘Oh no, Louis,’
said I. ‘We are too old to be fools.’ He said :
‘Now Rachel come with me to a lodging house and
I’ll spend half of the two dollars.’ I said : • Louis,
don’t be foolish.’ Then I tried to get away, but he
caught me at 127th street. I said I wanted Co go
home. He said he had the rights of a husband and
would exercise them. I resisted. Then he got mad
as Jupiter and struck me on the side of the head,
and I got confused, and he followed me to where I
lived and again assaulted me at the railing.”
“ Byrnes, what have you to say ?” asked Justice
Kilbreth, who believes in “mutuality.”
" She struck me across the face with a stone,”
said the old man.
“ Why do you annoy her ?” asked the Court.
‘‘Heaven save your honors, it’s human nature.
She told mo to call on her on New Year. She would
bo ready for me at half-past seven. I was there
then tho light of her soul. I went around and she
wished me a happy new year- W’o wont out to
gether and had a drink. Then I called for two more.
Then a whisky skin each. As we sat by the stove
she said I’ll have to go home. All right says I. She
wanted mo to see her homo. I said certainly.”
“ Did you strike her ?” asked tho Court. “Were
you drunk ?”
“Certainly, half full. At a hundred twenty-eighth
street I found her going the wrong way, and when
I remonstrated, she threw a stone at me.”
" Y'ou couldn’t get a stone there to throw,” said
the wife.
“Did you drink with him ?” asked the Court.
“ I took one of ale and one of something else for
old Lang Syne.”
“Guilty,” said the Court. " Has he been in the
habit of beating you ?”
“Yes, sir,” many’s the black eye I’ve had. I’ve
washed and ironed, and scrubbed for him, till we
were put out by the landlord.”
“Has he ever been on the Island.”
“ A dozen times, all last Winter as a pauper when
I lived out.”
" Six months,” said the Court.

BUT THE COURT W’OULD NOT ALLOW' IT.
«• How often have you had him arrested ?” asked
the Court of Julia Bohlan.
“ I never had Charles arrested for any crime. He
was once arrested for being drunk. He got off with
a flue. I wish you would let him go.”
“Not yet,” said the Court. “How did become
to knock you down and give you those two black
eyes ?”
" He was drunk, or he wouldn’t a done it.”
“What do you plead to tho charge?” said the
Court, addressing the man.
“ Not guilty,” he replied.
On being sworn, she said she lived at No. 11 Car
mine street. On the 31st of December Charles came
home drunk.” She stopped and looked pleadingly
at the Court. Then she continued : “Please, I don’t
like to do it, or I’ll lose my support.”
"What did he do ?” asked the Court.
"He abused me.”
"Then he knocked you down, kicked yon, and
gave you those black eyes. How many blows did
he give you ?” asked the Court.
"I don't know. He shoved me, and I fell. Ho
ships sailors and I keep boarders.”
“What have you to say ?” asked the Court, ad
dressing the man.
“ I came home in the evening, after my day’s
work, and went in the dining-room, and she said to
me, * You are a loafer.’ She had an old man thene.”
“ How long have you kept this boarding-house ?”
asked the Court.
" Ten years.”
To his astonishment, he was sent to the Peni
tiary for three months.
The Knickerbocker's Success.—The
Knickerbocker Roller Skating Rink, at the Ameri
can Institute Hall, Third avenue aud Sixty-third
street, has been crowded every day and evening
during the week, both by skaters and spectators”
and it is calculated, at the lowest estimate, that not
less than 60,000 persons passed in and out of the
building during the six days. On Friday night the
crush was so great that standing room was impos
sible to find, and the outer doors had to be closed
belore nine o’clock, shutting out a still large crowd
which at the time reached from the entrance to
nearly Sixty-second street, and last night the at
tendance was almost as large.
The coming week will be what is known as race
week, there being no exhibition of fancy skating,
but only racing. These contests will be as follows:
Monday evening, a mile race for amateurs who have
not won a race, for a silver match box. Thursday
evening, a mile race for amateurs who have won
medals, for a gold pencil, and a game of polo be
tween the Knickerbocker and Dunham, Buckley &
Co. teams. Saturday afternoon a race for school
boys for a silver medal, and Saturday evening a
mile race for amateurs for a gold scarf pin.
The Old Guard Ball to be given at
the Metropolitan Opera House on Thursday even
ing. 22nd inst, will be the only grand military en
tertainment of the season, and additional interest
attaches to it from the success of last year. The
music will be provided by Bernstein and Gilmore.
The decorations, from new designs, will include
both the stage setting in a military picture and
floral and emblematic dressing to the entire house.
All the committees are active in their efforts to
make the Old Guard Ball of 1885 memorable in more
ways than one. The military and social features
will be notable from the presence of special deputa
tions from Boston, Albany, Charleston, Hartford,
Worcester, and Philadelphia; and from the Treas
urer’s report, all the first row and nearly all
the other boxes have been sold. The Old Guardsmen
are confident and happy.
Mb. Tighe Apologized.—Mr. Tighe
gave Mrs. Tighe a pair of’enameled eyes, and he was
arrested. Between arrest aud trial John Saw Mary
through the bars of a prison cell, and as soon as her
nose tipped up to the bars he kissed tho projectile
and lustily prayed for forgiveness.
She stood it awhile, but the warm pressure be
tween the bars warmed her heart as well as nose,
and she relented.
W’heu John was arraigned she asked to withdraw
the complaint—this was liis first offense. Now he
begged her pardon, and had sworn that he would
be awfully good forever.
“ Take him home,” said the court.
The Police Captains' Dinner.—Tire
inspectors and captains of the police fore’e of this
city will hold their fourth annual dinner at Del

Catabbh Cubed.—A clergyman, after
suffering a number of years from that loathsome
disease, catarrh, alter trying every known remedy
without success, at last found a prescription which
completely cured and saved him from death. Any
sufferer from this dreadful disease sending a self

A Reception to Attend.—The annual
reception of the New York Young Men’s Roman

to insure the coming one being superior, if possible,
in all features to those which have preceded it.
Last year’s fashions are out of date,
but last year's friends are still our own. This is

CANVASSING FOR DEPARTMENT COM
MANDER— CIRCULAR EROM THE VET
ERANS’ RIGHTS UNION—GATHERINGS
OF THE PAST WEEK AND THOSE TO
COME—A ROUND OF SUPPERS AND
BALLS—ITEMS OF MEWS.
Only a little over three we’sks to ws»it and the
vexed question a» to the nex-i Department Com
mander will have been settled. The ehsaffipment
meete at Utica, February 4th and sth.- The strength
of Gen. N. W. Day daily increasing, support be
ing promised from unes'x-pefcted quarters. An active
and successful canvass is being conducted for him
in Brooklyn by promineu-t Grand-Army men. That
in this city has been equaMy successful, and ia in
equally competent hands, while most encouraging
reports have been received from certain sections of
the State. A meeting of representative men of this
city, delegates to tho Encampment, was held last
evening at No, 392 Bowery, for the purpose of dis
cussing and naming a comrade for Department
Commander, too late however for more than men
tion in this issue of the Dispatch. The friends of
Gen. Day are very sanguine of success, not only
without the assistance, but despite the opposition
of the present administration. His connectioo with
th® Veterans* Rights Union, and earnest work dur
ing the past year in behalf of the veteran, has made
h?m many friends, and bls name a familiar on® in
all parts of this and other states. A meeting of the
Union will be held at Utica on the evening of Feb
ruary 3, in announcing which the Executive Cox>
mittee have sent out the following circular ;
FRATERNITY MEANS SOMETHING.
New York, January 1, 1885.
Vetekans op the Wab:
Thus we address all who, in the days of 1861 to
1865, left home and all its attachments and, on land
and sea, were willing to suffer hardships and sacri
fice health, limb—aye, life itself—in carrying tho
flag to victory, that this nation might live and be
come the home of universal liberty. The ties which
made us brothers then grow stronger as tho years
elapse. Onr duty to those who have gone are
borne in remembrance as each year, on Memorial
Day, we strew with flowers the graves oi those who
gave their lives upon the altar of their country. As
the years roll on, as time passes, we can but realize
that soon the long roll may beat, the assembly bo
sounded; but in vain, for the soldiers of the Repub
lic will have passed away and become a part of
those in that great army of the dead, not again to
fall into lino until the reveille is sounded on the
Resurrection morn.
These are serious thoughts, comrades—they aro
thoughts which should cause us to determine that
now, while strength and life remain, and for the
lew years that we can fraternize, that we will stand
together as in those days of twenty years ago,
shoulder to shoulder, fighting for principle and
right, Let us be one solid phalanx in demanding
that any law enacted in behalf of those comrades
who were “ honorably discharged by reason of dis
ability resulting from wounds or sickness incurred
in the line of duty,” where they aro worthy aud
have business capacity, and their necessities re
quire, shall, in accordance with Section 1754, have
preference in the civil employ of the Government.
See to it that, for the time being, personal ambi
tions are put aside and that the cause of one be
comes the concern of all. Let us show by our
works that our comradeship is a something strong
er, higher, holier than self —that, iu our ambition
to serve a comrade, we will by every proper means
in our power oppose all who oppose him. Let us
seek nothing for a man unworthy, but where we
have a worthy case let our fight for him and his
cause be as persistently made as was Grant’s cam
paign against Richmond. Let us fight it out on
that line until wo have won the victory.
To sustain the glorioifk old flag was our duty
once; to sustain him who helped us sustain that
flag, is our duty now. Let the law enacted in 1865,
as a tribute from a nation joyful over its delivery
from the carnage of civil war, to those who defended
its institutions be carried into effect or else blot it
from the Statute Book. To these men when they
present their claims, principal and interest, the
same prompt payment as the bonds of paper which
their sufferings aud sacrifices made of value, aro
due, aud no man with appointing power should
long have the privilege of that power unless he has
patriotism enough to recognize the justice of this
prior claim.
Comrades: Think this matter over—it may not
apply in some localities, but for nineteen years
(with a promise to pay by preference in civil employ
of the Government, on the statute book.) this law
has, too often, been ignored. The preferred, bonds
have many, many times been presented for redemp
tion, but were repudiated.
Let us quietlyyet persistently, demand that this
preference so long promised, shall no. longer be
" mado to tho ear, to be broken to tho hope.” Let
no man who ever wore the Union blue,, who is wor
thy. competent aad entitled to these privileges and
rights, be denied them. Let no State boundary line
cause any hesitation in considering an injury to
one the business of all. From tho Atlantic to the
Pacific, from our northern lakes to the Gulf of
Mexico, wherever the flag of our Union waves, let
us with one accord again enlist, this time for Veter
ans’ rights, and, as before, ior the war. Let every
post iu this department recommend that its dele
gates to the Department Encampment at Utica,
represent them at a meeting to be held at Maonner
chor Hall, in that city, on the 3d day of February,
1885, at 7:30P. M., in regard to this matter.
It is a worthy object and our duty, and an extra
day’s time can well be devoted to its consideration.
Let our Fraternity become stronger, our Charity
more practical, aud Loyalty will soon receive its
reward in the redemption of the promise which for
so many years has been a dead letter, though all the
time a law. By tho Executive Committee.

A WEEK OF PLEASANT MEMORY.
The week just passed has been one that will be
remembered with pleasure by nearly every member
oi the G. A. R., of this city and Brooklyn, at least
all those who have attended the many installations
of officers in the different posts, and the attendant
jollifications.
Without a single exception all were remarkably
pleasurable gatherings—a continual round of en
joyment—and there is another week of it to come.
Tlio*offict.rs of Sedgwick Post, No. 186, of this city,
were installed at the Germania Assembly Rooms on
Monday evening, by Comrade Judge Edward
Browne, with a staff consisting of Max Reece, of E.
D. Morgan Post; Commander-elect Scmidley, of
Riker Post; M. B. Laurence, Veteran Tost; W. B.
Oakdon, Chaplain of No. 307; Captain Moeser, of the
Anderson Zouaves; Quartermaster Leary, of Farra
gut Post, aud 11. A. Krauss of Koltes. The attend
ance was very large, and prominent among those
present were Commander McEntee and wile, Com
mander McLozler, Commanders Keenan and
Boattie, Herman W. Thum, John Norton, and dele
gations from Veteran, Dahlgren, Riker, Koltes,
Rice and Farnham Posts. There was also a large
delegation from Major WoernerPost, No. 81, Depart
ment of Now Jersey, among them Commander John
Dede, Quartermaster; Samuel Evans, Adjutant; A.
Shuman, and Comrades Wells, Atwood, Miller, Bray,
Buck, Seigler, Loeffler, Bonstrom, Haggerty.
Pfeiffer and Livingston. Past Commander Edward
ByrnS Contributed much to the evening's enjoy
ment. Ho was accompanied by his wife* and
daughter, the Misses Emm Lynch and Emma
Coyle.
Tho charges wero well delivered by Judge Browne,
and Commander-elect John P. Kevill took his scat
amid a hearty round of cheers. Then Comrade
Alex. Francisco, Chairman of the Committee of Ar
rangements, called forward Isidoro Isaacs, the re
tiring Commander, aud presented him on behalf of
the post, with a magnificent, heavy set amethyst
ring, with a miniature badge in the centre, sot in
diamonds. Past Commander Isaacs was the or
ganizer of the post, and its commander for four
years. He declined re-election. A ball followed the
encampment, which was kept up until an early
hour.
The officers of Andrew Jackson Post, No. 300,
were also installed on Monday evening at their
headquarters, No. 52 Union Square, by Past Com
mander Thomas Cochrane, of Kimball Post. Chris
Lutjens was happy among the many friends sur
rounding him, but supremely so, when after the in
stallation he prevailed upon most of those present
to accompany him to his house, at No. 470 Second
avenue. There Mrs. Commander Lutjens was in
command, presiding over a sumptuous repast. It
was in old camp life style, rough board tables, iron
spoons, and tin plates and cups, but it was
thoroughly enjoyable, and broke up at an early
hour.
The public installation of the officers of Abel
Smith Post No. 435 G. A. R., Brooklyn, E, D., of the
Eastern District, in Knickerbocker Hall on Clymer
street, Monday evening, was a notable event. The
p6st when mustered in December 31, 1883, by Ad
jutant General Squires numbered only forty-three,
while there are 168 men now on tho roster. The
hall was crowded when the ceremonies began. The
decorations and devices were in keeping with the
occasion. Evergreens and streamers fastened at
various points of the hall were gathered in the cen
tre of the ceiling. The scene in front of and on the
stage was quite warlike. The folded standards of
the post were placed at opposite ends of the stage
aud near them were handsome crayon portraits of
Colonel Abel Smith, Sr., and Lieutenant-Colonel
Abel Smith, Jr., father and son, alter whom the post
is named. In front of the installing officers desk
on the stage the figures “435** blazed forth in gas
jets and underneath was the charter of the post.
Back of and on either side of the desk were two
tents, nicely constructed, with stacked rifles and
bayonets in front of the entrance. Hon. Mark D.
Wilber, who is a member of the post, sat outside
one of the tents as if guarding it. Midway be
tween the tents was the handsome silk flag pres
ented to the post by Mr. Edmund McLoughlin, of
Bedford avenue.
Tho exercises opened with an appropriate selec
tion by the Columbia band. Hon. Mark D. Wilber
then spoke in an eloquent strain of the bravery
of the men, representing almost every calling in
life, who responded to their country’s call in the
hour of her peril. One-half of them laid down their
lives that their country might live and be a refuge
for tho oppressed of all nations, and the oth; r half
now belong to the Grand Army of the Republic. At
the close of Comrade Wilber’s remarks, Adj’t-Gen.
Squires installed the officers, and Commander Fred.
Cocheu took the gavel. An excellent programme,
consisting of solos, duets, recitations and selections
by the band, followed, and was warmly appreciated
by a large aud enthusiastic audience, lhe whistling
solo by Comrade Lovejoy, and the vocal duet by lit
tle Emma and Walter De Silva being especially note
worthy. Refreshments—coffee, ice cream and cake
—were then served by tho members of the post to
all present, after which the ceremonies were brought
to a close.
The officers of Wm. Lloyd Garrison Post, No. 207,
G. A. R., were publicly installed last Monday even
ing at Everett Hall, No. 390 Fulton street, by Past

Green, and Mr. Howard L. Smith—or New York. At
the close of the literary and musical entertainment
the guests and their friends of the post were in
vited to an upper room, w: ere they were hand
somely entertained by tho lady friends oi the post
with a fine collation, which was a credit to those in
charge. The post has been organized not quite four
years, but, although composed exclusively of col
ored old soldiers, has made rapid progress and
promises to do well under their new commander,
who has belore held the position, and is therefore
no novice.
Past Commander James S. Fraser installed the
officers of John A. Erix Post, No. 135. on Tuesday
evening, at their headquarters, No. 33 Union square,
and there are few members 01 ths department who
equal him in carryingout the’impressive ceremony.
It was followed by a varied literary and musieal en
tertainment, under the direction of Comrade I'avid
L Brown, in which Messrs. Allan Latham, R. Sut

tured or tin) of tho same pattern and design fur
nished by Uncle Sam to his numerous boys during
the late unpleasantness. Judging from the way the

BROOKLYN POLICE MATTERS
FORMATION OF A NEW MUTUAL AID ASSOCIA
TION-FREE USE OF THE CLUB IN WILLIAMS
BURG—RESIGNATION OF A POLICE CAPTAIN
CARELESSNESS OF MEMBERS OF THE FORCE
REBUKED-AN OLD DETECTIVE LEAVES THE
FORCE-TRIALS—DEATH OF AN OLD POLICE.
CAPTAIN.
An organization numbering over six hundred
members, has been recently formed, and will ba
known as the "Brooklyn Police Mutual Aid Asso
oian.” An assessment of ono dollar is levied upon
each member, payable monthly. On and after the
receipt of two thousand dollars into the Treasurer’s
hands, the sum of one thousand dollars will be
paid to the family or heirs of deceased members.
Captain Folk, of tho Twelfth Precinct, was elected
President, with Sergeant Dyer, of the Third Pre
cinct, acting as Vice-President.
In the selection of men to fill tho position of
special Officer, it would, evidently, be prudent to
refuse tho services of such as Ehring, of the Thir-?
teenth Precinct; clubbing a man to death is a rathe*
dubious method of obtaining ftppdintiaeat to
the regular force.
Captain Willrnarth, of tho Fourth Precinct, hav
ing tendered bis resignation, which was accepted,
wiil, it ie said, devote his future time to a study of
agricultural pursuits.
There will be. no doubt, much rivalry displayed
among the sergeants of different Precincts to obtain
tho position made vacant by the resignation of
Captain Willmartb. Rumor saith that Sergeant
Brennan, of tho Fifth Sub, has the inside track,
although Drill Captain McKelvey has many friends
who are booming his cause. The Commissioner
will make the appointment,
Superintendent Campbell has very properly com.
plimented the vigilance of Officer Gallagher, of the
Seventh Precinct, for his recent capture of a noted
burglar.
Lahey, of the First Precinct, fell asleop when he
should have been awake. It is a remarkable fact
that with the easy duty required from policemen,
the habit of napping overcomes their regard for
duty. Guilty. Fined two days’pay.
McKenna, of tho same Precinct, should pay moro
attention to fires occurring in the vicinity of hi*
beat. Carelessness upon his part to so report a con
flagration, was simply reprimanded.
Van Wickler, of the First Precinct, was, evidently,
imbued with a desire to protect tho interests of tlia
Pierrepont House.
For the reason alleged, he proceeded to encamp
upon a window-sill of said hostelry. No doubt his
zeal will be amply repaid by the proprietors of tho
hotePin question. Meanwhile the city exchequer
will be enriched to the extent of one patrolman’s
pay, forfeited by the offending officer.
Farley, of the Second Precinct, could not bring
to recollection an arrest made by himself, aided by
a citizen.
Brush up your thoughts, Farley, while ruminat
ing over tbo losji of seven days’ pay.
O’Malley, of the Third Precinct, should observe
due caution in tho performance ot his duty.
" We would rather see him advance,” said an old
attache. For neglecting his duty, O’Malley, being
found guilty, will forfeit seven days’ pay.
Connery, of the Third Precinct, should control
his apparent appetite for stimulants.
It requires a good excuse to be offered when ex
plaining one’s presence in the hallway of a liquor
saloon. Taffy won’t do. Guilty. Fined one day o
pay-
Quigley, of the same precinct, should follow <_ a
advice given Connery. A word to the wise is a suf
ficiency, ordinarily. This officer will contribute by
the loss of two days’ pay toward the settlement of
the city debt.
Walsh, of the Third Precinct, for being twenty
eight minutes late when Reporting on *he second
instant will forfeit one day’s pay.
Barnes, of the Fifth Sub Precinct, carried away
by an adoration of the art of Terpsichore, so far
forgot his duty as an officer as to unf tunately
yield to the temptation of engaging in tho mazy
while in uniform and supposed by his suderiors to
be diligently patrolling his post. Barnes may have
deadheaded into the ball-room, still a larger head
might have been developed through the medium of
tho live davs pay this officer will lose for his
of duty and absence from post,
Bowes, of the Sixth Precinct, wandered from his
own post to that ot a'nother officer, but the offence
warranted a simple reprimand only,
Clark, of the same precinct, should take particu
lar pains to be within hailing distance with a lew
minutes grace afforded. Being absent unaccounta
bly, when called lor by the Roundsman, will result
in a less of two days pay in this instance.
Tbo loss of two days’ pay ought to toach McNa
mee, of the Ninth Precinct, to forbear wandering
from his particular beat.
Roundsman Sees, of tho Ninth Precinct, reported
Wilkins, or tho same precinct, for not properly pa
trolling his post. The latter, being found guilty,
will forfeit one day’s pay.
Murtha, of the Eleventh I’recin ■» seems to have
succumbed to the fasc.natio of strong drink, it
may be a good man’s case. At least, it is so alleged.
Guilty. Loss oi five days’ pay.
Hallman, of the Ihirteoath Precinct, should ba
more prompt in reporting c roll call. Lot tho loss
of ono day’s pay teach the worthy patrolman a les
son in the future..
James Muilou. ex-captain of the Sixth Precinct,
was buried from his lato residence on Sunday last.
He was one of the oldest members of the force, aud
his loss is sincerely regretted.
Detective Riggs, who for years naa boon a charac
ter upon the forco, has resigned.
Several new appointments foave been made during,
the past week.
