BEFORE COM. McCLAVB. Tho ten complaints of being in liquor saloons, show a wonderful fertility of the imaginative pow ers in getting up an excuse. Reporters are put in the shade, CAUGHT GOBBLING IT UP. Coles and Ellis, of the Twenty-first Precinct, were in a liquor saloon in uniform, No. 161 Bowery, March 31. "It was an off day,” said Coles; “we had been to inspection parade, were thirsty, and went in to get a glass of lager. Before we got a chance to drink it we were gobbled up.” " That is a very improper thing to do,” Baid the Coicmicsinner. ” 1 know it is* but it is a very common thing,” re plied Coles, Jfillis said he was guilty, and gave tho same excuse. IT LOOKS BAP.- Leonard, of the Twenty-third Precinct, in the liquor store, No. 1,151 Third avenue. He was gu. Ho said he went into the water closet; as he camo out tho roundsman came in. He told Roundsman Folk where ho was: he wasn’t in the bar-room. Was in about ten minutes. i •* I would ftpd some other place, said tho Commis sioner. “Citizens seeing officers come out are very likely to suppose they were in getting a drink. I < would try and got some other place than a liquor store. You can get it if you try hard.” WAS INVITED TO DRINK. Graham, of the Twenty-first Precinct, was in the 1 liquor store No. 730 First avenue. 1 •• Correct,” said the officer. " What doing in there ?” •’A gentleman asked me to fap- .. , •‘From an examination tn mg&l’- ' Commissioner, “<♦ ’ rr youf fbfcora, said the on as you bad.

Graham.” "Well, you were in this liquor saloon?’ "I was out from 6 o’clock, on my feet all tho tiiP£, and was tired. The gentleman asked mo, ftp** be fore 1 had finished my drink the roundsman was in on me.” THE WINDING £o# THE TOUR. Conroy, Twenty-first PreCifict, found in a liquor Wtore, said it wan tfhe winding up of the tour. He thought everything was right, and just stepped Id to take & drink before turning in. ••You seo how it ih working. Hero are four men Oharged with beiug in liquor saloons,” said the Com naissioner, "and I don’t know how many more are to come. There is nothing that I dislike more than to inflict a penalty, but it must be done as a matter Of discipline. You know it is a violation of tho , Allies. There is nothing more serious, and yet one third of the charges are for being in liquor stores. I don’t know why you can't be more careful about 1 these things. Here you are. but a year on the force, and five charges have been made against yon.” NATURE’S SUMMONS. Martin, Twenty-first Precinct, was in the liquor Store at Thirty-seventh street and First avenue. "What is your explanation ?” asked tho Commis sioner. "I bad to go to the water closet, and there was a : man there and I came out. I told the roundsman when I met him at the door.” DIDN’T SIT DOWN. Sims denied being in the liquor store, No. 17 Jackson street. Roundsman Deevos said he was. On the morning in question, at 2;30, he saw tbo officer near the door; this was across tho street from his post. He went back and disappeared. Deeves wont over in the place through the bar, and found the officer sitting with citizens at a table, and a young man waiting on them. •• This was a liquor store ?” " Yes, sir. I said this is a nice place to bo, get on post. Ho ckme in the bar-room and I said I want you to report a violation of the Excise Law. Ho said I don’t see it. I said the bar is exposed. There were more than two in there. He reported it, but uaid he saw no violation of law. He left his post to report the violation of the law, and saw none he said. His post was the opposite side of the street. ‘The captain told him he, the roundsman, had no right to look at the entry on the blotter.” The officer said he had been in the Thirteenth Pre cinct ten months, and was frequently on excise duty on Sunday, in citizens clothes. •‘ This was not Sunday,” said the Commissioner. "I saw two men go in; it is a restaurant in the rear. I found the men drinking coffee, and the roundsman came in.” " This was on another officer’s post?” •• Yes, sir.” •’ Did you sit down ?” "I did not sit down or drink anything. I reported the case to Captain Petty and he told me to get out a warrant. I did, and Justice Gorman discharged him. I went in because I did not see the man on post.” .Several witnesses swore that the officer did not ait down at the table. THE SECOND CHARGE. A second charge arose out of the first. After mak ing the arrest on a warrant, instead of taking his prisoner to the station-house to have his pedigree taken, he took him direct to court. The officer thought in making the arrest on a warrant, he was acting as a court officer, and neg lected to first take his prisoner to the station-house. It was the first time he had mado an arrest on a warrant. THE AUCTIONEER TREATED HIM. Smith, of the Twenty-second Precinct, was in the liquor saloon, Fifty-second street and Eleventh avenue. "The water closet, I suppose,” said the Commis sioner. "There was an auction sale next door,” said the officer, "and a number of boys collected. I kept them away. When they got through tbo auctioneer asked me to step inside, and I had a soda.” "Nothing in it ?” " Nothing.” BETTER WITHOUT A DEFENSE. Bradley, of the Twenty-second Precinct, was found in the hallway leading to a liquor saloon. He de nied being in the saloon. "He could have gone through the hallway with outgoing in the saloon?” " Y-c-s,” said the roundsman. Bradley called a witness who saw him in tho hall way. “ How did you come to see the officer ?” asked the Commissioner. "I was serving a party in the hallway with li quor.” / Ginger and Water. Dalton, of the Twenty-second Precinct, admitted being in a liquor saloon. He was subject to diarr- ’ hcea, and went in and told the bartender to give him some ginger and a little water. “That isn’t an ordinary drink,” remarked the Commissioner. “ Men are in the habit of putting a little brandy in it.” "They say it’s better with water. You can only got so-called brandy there; it is a lager beer saloon.” "He said he went in for a drink of water,” said the roundsman. "It wasn't without color. When 1 asked what he had drank he couldn’t tell me.” "I couldn’t speak, my mouth was burned,” said tbo officer. EUCHRED. Kennedy, Cahill and Lawrence, of the Twentieth Precinct, were found in the back room of the liquor saloon. No. 460 Eighth avenue, sitting at a table with coats and hats off. Cards wero before them, and the roundsman entered and euchre! them. They should have been out on patrol duty. "Well, what were you doing there?” asked the Commissioner. " 1 answered an alarm rap,” said Kennedy; “Law rence was chasing them that had been trying to rob Roe’s packing-house. While chasing them in a big hallway wo got our clothes all soiled, and went in to scrape off the dirt. We were in tbo act of coming out when we mot the roundsman.” " What did you see ?” asked the Commissioner of Roundsman Campbell. "They were in their shirt sleeves, sitting down, ■with a pack of cards before them.” "You were playing cards, as a matter of fact?” eaid the Commissioner. "We ain’t charged with that,” said Kennedy. "I don’t believe in this long cross-examination to gat at the truth, but I am satisfied that you were in there playing cards.” The other two pleaded guilty, and made no ex planation. THE AGONY PILED UP. Gardner, of the Eighth Precinct, had three and a half blocks for a post. Sergeant Christie was an hour and a half going over it looking for him. The officer said he was in a water-closet. There was a second charge—coming out of a livery stable. The sergeant asked him what he was doing there. Gardner said, "You can’t bulldoze me. Yon took me out of the ranks this morning when I was as sober as you,” thus collecting a crowd. The officer said a fire broke out at No. 96 Sullivan street, and he put it out with a pail of water, and remained there some time. Pulling bis fire-key out, he pulled a five-dollar bill, and dropped it there, and went back to look for it. Ha denied using the language charged. When accused of not patrolling, the sergeant called him a G liar. He returned the compliment. The sergeant raised his stick to strike; he put his up, and said two could play at that game. It was the sergeant liimself that collected tho crowd. Two citizens corroborated tho officer. " Absent from reserve roll call was the third charge. He said he took the chance to go home to see his family. He told the sergeant when he came back that he foil asleep. The fourth charge was preferred by Roundsman Hyland, who couldn’t find him. The officer said he thought he bad to take in Renwick street as part of his post, and being there the roundsman missed him. MADE MAD BY ERYSIPELAS. The defease of Quigley was curious. Captain Hedden’s information reached him in the shape of a rumor, that on March 6th the officer had entered the liquor saloon of Thomas J. Ward, No. 17 Mont gomery street, with a woman, called for drinks for the two, and drew his pistol on the bar-tender. John McCormick, bar-tendet at No. 17 Montgom ery street, said that on March 6th, the officer, with a woman, came in his place, and ordered two whisky sours. This was between six and seven in the jnorning. He told Quigley it was against the rules of tho house to sell to ladies. The officer put his Land in his pocket and drew out a revolver, and presented it at his head, and said, "Now, you son of a , make these sours that I ordered.” When they wero made, he said, " Make a port wine for the laly.” When they wero made he put his pistol back in his pocket, and the man and woman drank. ••Did you ever see the officer before ?” asked the Commissioner. •• The evening before be had drinks. Ho was in uniform.” " How long was ho in the place?” asked counsel. "About five minutes.” "How long did be have the pistol pointed at you ?” •• While mixing tho drinks.” ••You made a charge against him at the police court of intent to kill?” " Yes; the Justice hasn’t rendered bis decision in that case.” The defense called Dr. C. T. Wbybrew, who said that he was called in on the 6th of March, the day of this occurrence, and found officer suffering from erysipelas of tbo brain and in a high fever. He was lying in bed; his face was mottled and purplish. The doctor bad no doubt of the officer being out of his mind from this disease. The disease had so far advanced that he must have been in the same con dition on tho 6th and 7th. “ Drawing a pistol on the 6th, would you consider it was from the disease ?” "He was not competent or responsible for his acts on the 6th.” Dr. George Vandegraff, of No. 277 Henry street, visited the officer at his house on March 6th, at seven o’clock. He had all tho symptoms of erysip elas, and was delirious. Then the police surgeon had been sent for. His face then was swollen. He would not have been responsible for his acts on the morning of the 7th. Dr. Satterlee, the police surgeon, saw the officer on the 6th of March at his house. He was out of his head, and was so for several days. He attended him till the 26th, and ordered him on duty on the 27tb. He was two or tljre© days delirious. He didn’t know the doctor. The mail fras suffering from a severe attack of erysipelas. He was Dot responsible fop big on the 6th or 7th, ho was entirely out of his head. Ihe officer said: "I bavo no knowledge of tho occurrence. I don’t recollect going in that store, of pulling a pistol, of saying anything to tho bar keeper; have no recollection of going in the store, or going out of it, or what transpired on the morn ing of the 6th.” '■ you ever have an attack of erysipelas before this ?” asked the Commissioner. “Two years ago.” “ How did it affect you then ?” •* la the same way.” AS BAD AS DRUNK. McCauley was found asleep in the street-cleaning department.foot of East Sixteenth street, by Rounds man Manniere. When he got up he said to the roundsman he was tired. Tpe officer said at 2:30 A. M., he got to the foot of Eas? Sixteenth street, and went in to get a drink of water. etable take care of the office and went to go* Water. “ What has that to do with falling C leop ? . .

O’Connell had one leg out and one log and head in a grocery store. Ho held that was not being in the place, OUR WmßTfflT. TRIALS AND JUDGMENTS-SICK FIREMEN—NOTES. The medical officers of the department reported last week that they had on th-eir lists the names oi fifty sick and disabled officers aud men. The following were the trials of the session: A FIGHT. Fireman Gustave Fuhrman, of Hook and Ladder Company No. 6, was charged with being engaged in a fight with Fireman Luke McSherry, of the same company, on the 3d inst. Fireman Luke McSherry, of Hook and Ladder Company No. 6, was charged: First—with being un der the influence of liquor; second—with refusing to clean the forward part of the apparatus when so ordered by the foreman; third—refusing to leave the apparatus floor when the captain ordered him to do so; and fourth—with being engaged in a fight with Fireman Gustave Fuhrman of the company. Both cases were laid over until next Wednesday, for the reason, as stated, that McSherry’s wife was in a dying condition. NEGLECT OF DUTY. Fireman Timothy Sullivan, of Engine Company No. 7, was charged with failing to report for duty on tho apparatus floor and not going with his apparatus to a fire; and again, with being ab sent without leave for one hour and thirty live minutes; these offenses being committed—in the first instance on March 20th, and in the last on March 25tb. Sullivan pleaded guilty, and said that he had been on duty for a long time before these violations of the rules ot the board took place. Ho was only two seconds behind time. Ho went to the fire on the water tower, and took the pipe in the cellar. Com. Purroy—“ You are guilty on all of these charges, ain’t you ?’’ Tho accused answered, "Yes, sir.” Com. Purroy—"Well, that’s all; return to your company.” Sullivan was then fined tho loss of ten days pay. Fireman Lawrence Reynolds, of Engine Company No. 18, was charged with being absent without leave, and failing to report for' duty on the appara tus floor on March 31st, ult. He pleaded guilty, and said that on the night pre ceding the offenses being committed he had been to three working fires, and had had but little sleep, and then came the annual inspection, after which he went to sleep. When he woke up he got a boy to get him a sandwich. When the "station ” came in be was in front of company quarters awaiting arrival of the boy with the sandwich. He was sor ry for what he had done, but he did not go away from the engine house, and if the alarm had been In their district he would have been on hand to go with the apparatus to tho fire. The Board then fined him the loss of two days’ pay. Engineer Thomas Walker, of Engine Company No. 30, was charged with failing to keep the water on a proper level in the boiler of the Fifth Battalion spare engine, thereby causing the tubes to collapse and the boiler to leak so as to extinguish the fire in the furnace, and throwing the engine out oi service —this occurring on March 27th. Captain John Castles, who has charge of the re pair shops, testified that the engine came to the shops in a useless condition; some of the tubes were collapsed, and the others were scorched, and the apparatus required a new boiler, and so he rec ommended. The engineer was responsible for the supply of water to the boiler, aud that was what caused the whole trouble. The engine was an old Amoskeag one, and had been in service for eighteen years, and when it was brought to the shop he made a thorough inspection of it. Mr. William O’Rourke and several other machin ists of the repair shops, corroborated Captain Cas tles’ testimony. Walker, in his own behalf, said he had been work ing the engine at the fire; he started it, and it worked first rate for an hour and twenty minutes; it worked at 80 lbs. pressure; the tubes were leak ing at the beginning of the fire, and the accident occurred when be was ordered to increase the press ure to 125 lbs. Assistant Engineer Grace said he screwed down the safety valve, and the engine was leaking be fore it went to work; the fire was black from the leakage, and the engineer (Walker) said, " That’s all right, it will soon take up.” The Board believing that Walker was not to blame, dismissed the charge against him. Fireman Charles Sheridan, of Engine Company No, 29, was charged with failing to report for duty,, and not going with tb© apparatus to a fir© on Mgrch 31st. He pieiued guilty, and said he had been troubled with a rheumatic affection; he had taken some ■ warm baths, which made him sleepy; he went to bed and fellasleep; he did not feel well, ana waS not a drinking man. He was found guilty, and fined tho loss of five days’ pay. Fireman William J. Mulhare, of Hook and Ladder Company No. 3, was also charged with similar of fenses, thoy being committed on March 31st. He pleaded guilty, and said ho was tired out; he went to bed and got asleep, and overslept himself. Nobody called him to respond to the alarm, and he therefore slept through tho fire. Captain Meagher stated that the accused was not under influence of liquor, and he was generally a Mulhare was then fined two days pay. A SERIES OF CHARGES. Fireman William Farrell, of Engine Company No. 47, was charged, first, with failing to remove the ashes from the heater and other stoves in the quarters of the company, and leaving them in good order when relieved from house-watch on April 4th; second, using direspectful language to fireman Edward Curley on the same day, and third, with failing to discontinue the use of such bad language when ordered by Captain McCormick. Ho pleaded not guilty to the charges. Engineer Carolin testified that he heard loud voices in the house, he thought there was some altercation be tween Farrell and Curley down stairs; tho foreman wont down stairs to ascertain tho trouble. Farrell ! said he removed the ashes down stairs, but not up stairs in the stoves there. Curley testified he went down stairs to look at the fire, and asked if the boater had been fixed, and ho had a.dispute with Farrell as to who should fix the fires. Farrell then abused the witness and called him a " , and a sucker; he was nothing but a sucker.” I The witness removed the ashes from the heater and the captain came down stairs, and tho witness generally did Farrell’s work, and h© said to Farrell, “Now, you go away from me, I am attending to my business.” Had never had any trouble with Farrell before. Fireman George Davis testified ho was at home eating his dinner when tho row took place, and when he returned to company quarters Farrell was clean ing out the stoves; did not hear any disturbance between Farrell and Curley, nor any improper lan guage used; heard them talking loudly, that was all. Farrell, in his own behalf, said he made some re mark to Curley about cutting up hay, and at that timo he could not attend to the heater nor tho stoves. Witness said he was a little " hot-headed” and excitable at times; Curley and he had had some ugly words down stairs; he could not swear that he did not use the words imputed to him, but he did use the word "sucker,” and could not remem ber exactly what language he did use; he and Curley were both "hot-headed.” Captain McCormick testified he heard the wrang ling down stairs and said: “W’hat’s the matter, can't you fellows agree. Now, I want this thing stopped, and stopped now, too.” Farrell said: "Well, Cap, it is stopped.” The captain said: "H—l! if you don’t stop it, I will send you before the Commissioners.” The captain then in the most positive manner that Farrell did use the words named in the complaint, to Curley. Com. Purroy—"Well, Captain, the witness Davis swears that he did not hear any bad language used by Farrell. Now, I want you to ventilate this mat ter, and if you find that Davis or any other of the witnesses have testified falsely here to-day, you must prefer charges against them. Now, remem ber, Captain, I expect to hear from you in this mat ter. I don’t want any false swearing upon the part of a fireman to shield one who is on trial.” Farrell was then fined ten days’ pay. NOTES. The Board, next Wednesday, will open proposals and award a contract for building a new house for the department on the northeasterly side of Tre mont avenue, between Vys© street and the South ern Boulevard, for Engine Company No. 45. Commissioner Purroy, the treasurer of tho Relief Fund, submitted a report on Wednesday to the Board, showing that for the quarter ending March 31st ult., the receipts were $8,672.29, the disburse ments $22,346.95, and th© balance on hand was $453,929.25. A few days since the widow of the late Fireman William D. Bliss, of Hook and Ladder Company No. 5, received from th© " Life Insurance Fund ” i the sum of SI,OOO. On last Monday night, Hook anti Ladder Truck No. 4 ran into a hole in front of the building No. 8 ) West Fifty-sixth street, and the apparatus was up. set, throwing violently to the ground Firemen Wil i liam T. Lear and Thomas Conklin. They were both taken to St. Luke’s Hospital. Lear had his collar l bone broken, and Conklin received several severe ' injuries. ' On last Sunday morning, while in the quarters of j Engine Company No. 18, located in West Tenth NEW YOBE Disr ATCH, APRIL 12, 1885. street, near Greenwich avenue, the Dispatch fire reporter was informed by a fireman, who was tem porarily detailed there for duty, that "this com pany has a representive from every county in Ire land.” On tho eighth day of October last, the Board dis missed the service Fireman Robert L. King, for be ing drunk while on special duty at the Star Theatre four nights before. King took his case to tho Supreme Court, which last week rendered a decision reinstating him to bis former position, and substituting for his sen tence of dismissal, suspension from pay and duty for six months, and the Commissioners, regarding this as an outrage, propose to get a stay of proceed ings, with a view of carrying the case to the Court of Appeals. Fireman Dixon McQueen, of Engine Company No. 51 (the fire-boat Zophar Mills), has been comifli mented for his bravery in saving lives. Station No. 224, special building signal, is th© Ly ceum Theatre, located on Fourth avenue near Twenty-third street, and is the sanio as Station No. 38L The following apparatuses ar© now in th© repair shops either undergoing repairs or being rebuilt: Engines Nos. 10, 24, the second company of Engin’S No. 27; Hook and Ladder trucks Nos. 4, 19 and 12; the water tower; Engine Company No. I’s tender, and also Engine Company No. 2’s tender. VETERAN FIREMEN'S ASSOCIATION. At a meeting of th© N. Y. Veteran Firemen's Asso ciation, held at Clarendon Hall, on the evening of March 30th, 1885, the following gentlemen wero elected officers: Goorgo W. Anderson, President; John Moller, Vice-President; James F. Wenman, Treasurer; R, Sweeney, Recording Secretary; J. H. Financial Secretary; Henry Jones, Ser geant-at-Arms; Trustees, Fred. A.

Patterson, Edward Bon nell, Patrick Dailey, Thomas Barrett, William Or ford, Richard Evans, Daniel Garvey, Daniel Quinn, Thomas Cloarey. BROOKLYN FIRE NOTES. RECEIPT CF STORES — TRANSFERS — SICK — A CCI DENTS—GOSSIP—ETC. There appeared to be plenty of news at, and in the vicinity of headquarters last week, from which we cull tho following: The reticence as to the date of tho examination of foremen, to fill tho position of District Engineer, and of privates to be appointed as foremen, has for months (afforded a general topic of conversation throughout the entire department. That those up on and behind the throne, so to speak, have good and sufficient reasons for withholding any informa tion wLicli might indirectly, perhaps, tend to weaken the efficiency of the force, must not be ’ xO gt slgiit of for a moment. That in due t g e 80 . lection to fill both positions will bq j s 86 1 K evident, and will occur in due events. Thati tho action of many, aspirations aro as ridkju lous as their loudly fitness to fill any vacant positiq fl bpen upon tho force, is notv well known i s generally condemned. None, wo von turq co g a y, tut tried and true men may hope to Bttcceed in obtaining promotion at tho coming ex amination; at least, so we aro informed, and from what souroo tho Dispatch is not in honor bound to reveal. Captain Murphy, with his assistants in tbo Equip ment Department, has been busily engaged during the past week in receiving and storing supplies for general use. It i but just to here remark that the executive ability of the genial captain is recognized by those who aro even outside of the force. This column, it must bo remembered, is not in tended ae a medium for the ventilation of malicious ideas. Tho Dispatch is not depending upon reports from private individuals "who have a bone to pick,” and the reporters thereof know that five and one are six. Draw your own inference, gentlemen. We regret to state that McNamara, of Truck No. 3, owing to a breakage of the running gear of that apparatus, was seriously injured at tho call 234 last week. Mac, however, is not easily knocked out, and will, we trust, yet be able to waft around the corner to see a friend. A visit to the new engine houses was made this week, and it is safe'to say that they will each be in perfect order and ready lor occupancy ere long. The telegraph force will connect tho wires the mo ment the house are accepted by the city. Consider able fault is found, however, with the position of the stalls, which, it is predicted, will be altered upon the arrival of the company with apparatus. In tho suit for damages against tbo De Kalb Ave. R. R. Co., for injuries received by being thrown from the tender of Engine No. 9 while attending a fire, Boerum, of that company, has consented to compromise, it is said, for the sum of $75. Dirt cheap. W Much complaint is now indulged in over the fact that one of the recently appointed firemen is a resi dent of Jersey City. This is strange, too. [ Thirteen sections of damaged hose were la week shipped to the American Rubber Hose Company at Boston for the purpose of being re-lined. Silk, of Truck No. 3, has been permanently de tailed to headquarters, and will, it is said, occupy quarters assigned him, nightly. Stoney deserves recognition, as he is one of tho most worthy mem bers of the force. Malone, of Engine No. 19, has boon assigned to duty with Engine No. 6. The request of Friel, of No. 17, and Shaughnessey, of Truck No. 2, to be reinstated as Foremen has not as yet been granted, and it is feared that their suit will be unsuccessful. " Incendiarism seems to be upon the increase of late, and the miscreants who set fire to buildings should meet a worse fate than Mills, the wife mur derer,” thus spoke a patrolman to the reporter last week. We know for a fact, that were it not for the foresight of District Engineer Dale, and Foreman Duff, of Engine No. 3, a holocaust might have fol lowed a recent tenement fire in the Sixth Ward. The action of the Assembly Cities Committee re garding the abolishment of the Fire Marshal’s office, will be made known during the coming week. It is said that the duties of the latter have been assigned, in the coming future, to one of the most popular of the present fire force. We happened to pass in our perigrinations the Dean street house recently. The boys are no doubt efficient in the capacity in which they are employed. That No. 19 can discount any Engine Company in the W. D., is denied. Money now awaits the man who can rouse from a deep sleep, dress and repair to the floor in less than two minutes. A young lady being asked by her beau what she thought of the latters collar replied, that it reminded her of a white fence surrounding a lunatic asylum. Nothing personal remember. REPAIRS. The employees at the repair shop do not to have the time for which they receive pay, squan dered in the endeavor to help inventors. The in troduction of oil, therefore, is wholly condemned. Engine No. 13, whose hind axle was recently broken, was, on Friday, brought to the shop for re pairs. Truck No, 1, after being slightly repaired, was re turned last fweek. Engines No. 11 and 12 are at present in the repair shop—the former needing repairs to spring and tank, the latter needing a general overhauling. After all, we might as well make a proper show in soiling our fire department as is afforded many of those Who ar© pot “ Oh© Of ours,” speaking as lire melh Suicide of Prof. WRITING HIS OWN DEATH NOTICE FOR THE NEWSPAPERS. Prof. Julius Loiseau, an old resident of the village of Woodside, town of Newtown, where he owned a handsome property and resided with bis wife, alter eating his midday meal on Friday, went to his room lor a nap, leaving his wife in the sitting-room. He had been gone but few moments when Mrs. Loiseau was startled by the report of a pistol, followed by a dull sound, as of a heavy body falling to the floor. Sh© rushed up-stairs, and upon entering the room found her husband’s body lying upon the floor. He was undressed and was dead. A navy revolver that he had kept under his pillow lay on the floor near him. He had evidently stood in front of the looking-glass when he shot himself. An examina tion by Dr. W. H. Nelson and Coroner O’Conneli showed that tho pistol-ball had passed between tho fourth and fifth ribs, lodging near the heart. Coroner O’Connell, of Newtown, found among the papers taken from the body of Jules Loiseau, ol Columbia College, who shot himself through the heart at Woodside, Friday, a memorandum read ing as follows: ♦’ Died at Woodside, L. 1., ary 19, 1885, Jules Loiseau, age 56. Funeral on WTO nesday. Train leaves Long Island City 11:35 A. M.” It is supposed that the above was prepared by the j dead man, it being in his own handwriting and evidently intended for a notice in the newspapers in anticipation of his death cn the day mentonod, and leads to the belief that he had contemplated suicide prior to and since then. Mrs. Loiseau has been unconscious all night. Got ller License. COMMISSIONER MORRIS FREES HIS MIND. Mrs. Nelson applied for a license to sell liquor at No. 91 Cherry street some timo ago. As the police reported that the place was tho resort of loose wo men, tho Excise Board rejected her application. She closed up, and after two weeks mado a fresh appli cation. This time the police reports were silent as to the character of the place, there being nothing to report on. Mrs. Nelson suggested at the Bureau, in the hearing of Commissioner Morris, that if she could raise five or six hundred dollars she would get a license without trouble. Mf. Morris informed his associates, and they per emptorily refused her a license. Yesterday Com missioners Haughton and Mitchell reconsidered their decision, and voted to give her a license. "I vote no,” said Commissioner Morris, indig nantly. "It looks to me as if some one bad got that Woman’s $500.” "What do you mean?” retorted Commissioner Haughton, hotly, flaring up. "Just what 1 said,” was Mr. Morris’s answer. "It looks bad. lam not in any secrets, aud charge nothing. I just tell you how it looks, and vote no.” Mrs. Nelson got her license. Breaking a Show Window to Steal. —A crash of falling glass on Broadway, near Seven teenth street, between 12 and 1 o'clock Saturday morning, attracted the attention of Policeman Pet tit of tho Park Department. He ran after a man who went through Eighteenth street to Fifth ave nue. Policeman Robinson stopped the runner, and found a package of shirtings and half a dozen umbrellas, taken from the haberdashery of E. A. Newell, of No. 859 Broadway. Upon investigation it was discovered that one of the large side lights, valued at $75 had been broken to allow the things to be taken out. The prisoner, who was poorly dressed, and gave the name of John Daly, twenty-three years old, of No. 38 Bowery, was taken before Justice White, in the Jefferson Market Police Court yesterday, and held lor trial on a charge of burglary, preferred by Mr. Newell, bail to the amount of $2,000 not being offered. The Most Precious op Gifts.— Health is undoubtedly a more precious gift than riches, honor, or power. Who would exchange it for these —the chief objects of human ambition ? It is obvi viously the part of wisdom to employ means for the preservation of health and the prolongation of lite, which time and experience have proved to be relia ble. Many of the dangers by which health is threat ened may be nullified by the use of that most irre sistible of correctives and tonics, Hostetter’s Stom ach Bitters, which, by increasing vital power and rendering the physical functions regular and active, keeps tho system in good working order and pro tects it against disease. For constipation, dyspep sia, liver complaint, nervousness, kidney and rheu matic ailments and neuralgia it is invaluable, and it affords a sure defense against malarial fevers, beside removing every trace of such disease from the sys tem.

Mr. Isaacjßlumberg, the young Hebrew who was sued for breach of promise of marriage by Miss Fannie Zerovich, who demanded $5,000 damages, alleging that he had broken a marriage contract, was early about tho court yesterday, and walked up and down the corridors and around the rotunda meditating as to what the result of the jury’s de liberations would be. He had put in an appearance about the Supremo Court in the expectation that the verdict would be announced yesterday, but in this he was mistaken, as the court adjourned until Monday morning. Th© jurors, to whom th© case had been submitted for their verdict, remained in their room until late Friday evening, when they arrived at a verdict and were discharged. The result will be announced in court next Monday. ’fmoWlFtailorm O TJ R Spring and Summer Stock IS COMPLETE. ALL THE LATEST NOVELTIES IN X’LjVIUK AND CHECIC.S FOR SUITINGS and TROUSERINGS.

No. 501 Sixth avenue, corner Thirtieth street. OrORANZ, The Well-known Specialist, and proprietor and consulting physician of the New York Botanic Medical Institute, 513 8d ave., New York City, has made the treatment of PRIVATE DISEASES ot MEN a special study and practice for many years. Over 4,000 cases treated yearly. Recent cases of private diseaset cured in a short time. Ulcers, Hzimors and Blotches on Face or Body cured without giving mercury or other poisons. Mercury is the curse of the human race. Your children will sutler from its effects. Avoid it as you would any deadly drug. These diseases are being cured at this Institute without mercury. Dr. FRANZ is a graduate of a regular Medical College, is well known over the United States and Canada by thousands of old and young men he has cured, and it is a well-known fact that tor years lie has confined himself to the study and treatment of Sexual and Chronic Diseases, thus giving him advantages that few possess. Dr. FRANZ addresses himself particularly to those who have already tried various physicians and remedies from whom they have received no benefits, and who, in fact, have done them more harm than good. By a combination of remedies of great curative power, Dr. FRANZ has so arranged his treatment that it will afford not only im mediate relief, but permanent cures. i U UIW Ivllli Who are sufiering from the effects of youthful indiscretions showing some of tno following symptoms: Nervous and Physical Debility, Impotence (incapacity), Lost Manhood, Abuses of the System, Exhausted Vitality, Confusion of Ideas, Dull and Loss of Bril iiancy to the Eye, Aversion to Society, De spondency, Pimples on the Face, Loss of Energy, and Frequency of Urinating. You may be in the first stage, but remember you are fast ap proaching the last. Many a bright and naturally gifted young man, endowed with genius, ha* permitted his cas© to run on until remorse racked his intellect, and finally death cla med its victim. So lay aside your pride, and consult on? who thoroughly understands your ailment, and who will know your case, and find permanent relief for au aliment that has m ide day a drudgery and night hideous. Thousands upon thousands of men, in good standing in the social world, are to-day suffering from the fruits oftheir doings, the seeds of which were sown during moments of thou rhtlessness.
