After four days of quiet and care- ' ful Inquiry, Patrolman Waymack, the: Third district officer detailed by Cap? tain Wright to discover the source of j all the brass fixtures found on lleorgc Llvesey and .lohn Clark la*t Saturday, j yesterday succeeded in deducing that j the brass was stolen from the factory j of the Manchester Bug and Drugget Company, whose plant at the corner J of .Sixth and .Stockton Streets has been closed down for some months past. As soon a.s the fixtures were identi? fied as those which are missing from this company's factory, a warrant was issued charging the two young white men with entering the house by force and stealing the Isrnss. The warrant was served on the two in the City .lall, where they were remanded by Justice | Maurice for ten days In default of fur- . nishlng the 1500 bail required of them. : VVhen the two youths were arraigned | in the Police Court, Part 2. Monday morning. Patrolman Waymack asked, that the case be continued In order that he might have a chance to follow up his investigations. I/.vesey and | Cla^ik will have a hearing before Jus-; tlce Maurice on the morning of July 13. A tour of Inspection by Patrolman Wavmnck and Manacer Smith, of the Manchester Bug and Drugget Com? pany, disclosed yesterday that damage amounting to Ji^il or more had been done in the plant. In addition to breaking off and carrying away all the crease cups. Journals, water cocks, spigots and eleotrlc wiring around the factory, the intruders had removed the spigot from a larce barrel of en? gine oil and allowed the contents, valued at $-10, to pour out all over the! floor. The dcspollers, whoever they were. I forced an entrance through t'he screen j and wooden doors on the Sixth Street i side. nnd. after cleaning tip all the . mova.ble brass fixtures In the factory, left the forced door looking as usual. '. The discovery of the stolen fixtures ! was only made after Patrolman Way- j mack began hi.* Investigations If the ? two boys are convicted of house-break? ing, they will have to serve long terms ' In the penitentiary. The two youths were arrested Sat? urday morning by the merest Ohance. Patrolman Waymack noticed them J lupging thre,. sacks tilled with some | heavy material, and remembering the complaints of stolen brass and on a venture made them show him what the bags contained. Yesterday Man? ager Smith could Identify the contents of only one of the three bags, which leads the police to believe, that other stoops were forced and robbed by the youths, in one of the bags was found ii brass plate hearing the name of the Manchester Furniture Company. a plant that went out of business some time ago. Hydrophobia I-'onred. Alarming symptoms from a dog bite sustained Saturday by J. K. Bass, of ISO? Bainbrldgc Street, have led the attending physicians to declare Mr. Bass In danger of hydrophobia, and to j order him rushed to the Pasteur Ir.-j stltute in Washington to undergo a I course of treatment. The physicians believe that unless Mr. Bass takes ad- ; vantage of this treatment his death may result. Mr. Bass was bitten Saturday while shearing a dog sent him by a South Richmonder, and at Urs! paid little attention to the wound Soon after, however, it began to swell and become Inflamed, and a physician was called In to administer treatment. Hydro? phobia was not nt first feared, but de? velopments yesterday pointed to pos? sible rabies, and Mr. Bass will .bp hur? ried to ?Vashlngton. According to the owner of the dog lie has never exhibited a vicious or dangerous disposition, and the news that he 'had bitten Mr. Bass came ns a surprise. The dog itself Is now under cluse .surveillance for sicns of rabies, and It Is probable that It will be killed on the first Indication of the fatal disease. Mr. Bas.? is a blacksmith and horse shearer by traJe. Husband Is Hfsning. Becoming alarmed over the mysterl- ? ous disappearance of her husband, Mrs S. I. Minims, of Fifteenth and Perry Streets, yesterday communicated '? Wtt.h the police of the Third District and asked help in locating the miss? ing man. From her statements, it Is not be? lieved that Mlmnui has tuet with foul play, bu; that he has quit the city of Ills own accord. Mrs. Minims ad? mitted yesterday that thero had been ! some small disagreement between her self and her husband, hut she was not expecting It to load to such conse? quences. He was last seen In South Richmond Saturday afternoon when he drew his pay from the Southern Railway shops | Although no one saw hltn tnkc thel train, it Is thought that lie has gone from the city His wife saw him tori the last time Saturday morning, when he went to work, nnd at that time he gave no Indication of any purpose to leave her.

N'otlce of condemnation proceedings to widen West Seventh Street from the south end of the Free Bridge for sev? eral blocks east was filed yesterday In' the clerk's ofllce of the Hustings Court, Part II. It was requested In the notice that the condemnation committee be appointed by .ludge Wells on duly 21. Which will be after the opening of the regular .Inly term of the court There Is no more Important or cry? ing need In the hew ward, according to citizens, than the op<nlr.? and widen? ing of the lower end of Seventh Street. h! the extreme n:irrowncss of the street at this point has been the cause of Innumerable accidents, Although fhe s-ircM for several squares at the south end of 'he bridge is only a few feet wider than the two car tracks, all the I heavy traffic between the cities is crowded along this thoroughfare, and the conKesflon Is great. A sharp turn in the street just after the bridge Is left further endangers this section of the street and makefc It one of the, most. If not the most dangerous street In the whole city. The city took cognizance of this bad spot shortly after annexation, and be? gun steps to widen the street. It Is the purpose of the Council to add twen? ty feet on the south side of Seventh Street all the way to McDonough, which, although a costly undertaking, will do nwny' with this death trap. By making the south side of the street, from the, end of the bridge to the via? duct over the Southern Railway tracks, a public dump, the city has succeeded In having a groat deal of the | roposod twenty taot extra tilled in without cost to the municipality.
