Alfred B. Marks was continued to testify In the Chieliusky case im mediately aftei the Superior Court con vened yesterday afternon. He said he was often in the tin. room and never saw Mr. Sprnauce wanted to show by the witness that the company paid the boy's doctor bill and conUuuad his wages while he was sick. Mr. Bird objected, but after Mr. Sprnauce had been over ruled a number of times and noted ex ceptions, be succeeded in introducing the matter and got the reply from Marks the statement that Chieliusky was paid full wages until May, 120:) This opened the door for Mr. Bird and be practically showed by the witness that an insurance company was back of the Uoopss and Townsend Company, aud that the latter company did not have to pay the hoy's doctor bill. General Foreman Frederick Schiller testified that he did not see the belts come off very often, aud the main shaft .belts cover cam« off except when they were slack and needed tightening, which was very seldom. He told the boys to get William Barrett or Wilson to put on all belts which came off. ,He was on the stand when court adjourned. This morning Schiller reiterated what he stated yesterday afternoon,/ He had j line shaft belt oil unless had slackened or needed renewing. From Novemb-r 8 to December 3.1882, the time that Chlelinsky was employed in they nut room, bo had never seen a line shaft lightening or renewing it He said it was impossible for the line belt to bave come off eight or nine times between the times mentioned, or from December 8 to December 13. He denied seeing Apple gate up on tho stringers on any day be tween November 8 aud December 2. Mr Bpraauoo then took up the plot of the works and witness showed that it was impossible for a number of Mr. Bird's witnesses to see into the nut room from the places where they worked Only the men from the cutting machines had business in the ;nnt .room and they were only there to look at defective threads. Mr. Bird—"Are you a German by,birth?" "No, air." "You are an Englishman, aren't you?" "I guess so." "Don't you know so?" "Yes, I guess I do." "How long have yon been in Hoopea and Townsend's employ?" "Eight or nine years." "Wasn't it your duty to see that the machinery wds in proper order aud safe?" "Yes, sir." "Suppose you didn't attend to your duty, what would the firm have done with you?" "Discharged me, I guess." "You know the witnesses who have testified? ' "Yes, sir." ' Would yon put your judgment against theirs as to the belts coming off peatedly?" Mr. Sprnauce objected, saying -that Mr. Bird had made an argument in his question and it was improper. Before the court could rule on the question Mr. Bird withdrew it and asked "chiller if Ibe statement of each witness were true as to the mainline belt com Ing eff.' Schiller denied the statement of each in turn, confining his denials to the time that Chieliusky worked there. He said they bad all testified to what was not true. He had never seen a boy up in the stringers only when Chieliusky was hurt. Mr. Bird—"Did you ever see a main bell off? ' "You are confining me to the time the boy worked there." Mr. Bird—"No, I am speaking from the beginning of the world. Have you ever seen the line belt off by the shifter?" "No, I never knew it, but it could be belt off a it never seen u belt off either for re done ' Bchiller denied that John Applegate would bave an opportunity to go about the snop. He denied that he ever put Applegate to work the 'small cutter. From any of the machines Applegate worked be could not see Into the nutting rsom.t He contradicted Otcar Guild's statement '.that sometimes he would be out of work an hour or two a day for a week at a time. He believed William Applegate's statement that be waa frequently in the nutting room,to be in cur reot,because he bad no business there. Mr. Bird—"If the belts never came off why did yon answer Mr. Bpruaoce that yon Instructed the bays what to do when they did come off?" Mr. Sprnauce—"I object. It is a hypo thetical queaiiou which is not true." Mr Bird changed the form of his ques tion aud got his answer. Schiller said that short fingers and false threads would not throw off the main line belt, bat that the latter would throw off the belt from the machine to the counter shaft. He said that when he put Chlelinsky to work on the machine be told him not to have anything to do with the belts It was 11.55 o clock when Schiller left thy stand. John Ginther, a young white man, fol lowed Schiller. Ha testified that be worked at a machine near a window com manding a view of the interior of the not room. He bad never seen the boys putting the belts on He bad only seen the belt fixer adjusting them Edward Fahey gave similar testimony as to the custom of fixing belts, aud as to the small unmber of times they came off He was in the unt-room frequently while Chieliusky worked there, and bad never seen the main line belt off. He hud never seen Walter Applegate or William Brown up in the atrlngers ad justing the belts. James Brady and Thomas Clark gave corroborative testimony. For Bale.

MiRCHED THEM BACK AGAIN. Kiru rslonUts Would Have Embarked In ika Pouting I Ruin, But I, the Management Arranged fur a Postponement Until Next Monday, 1 'SHii The little Methodist parish of Kluge wood was disappointed, to day, when they opened their eyes and discovered that it was raining. Not a shower, that gave a promise of clearing, nor yet a drizzle that one could brave, but a steady, uncompromising downpour from leaden, sullen sky. In spite of this, though, the sturdy Kingswooders, who had decided to go on an excursion to Woodland Besch on the Thomas Clyde, gathered one by one, and in groups of threes, fives and sevens, until nearly the whole contin gent was present at the starting p int, twenty tqnares away from the wharf. The situation was discussed from var ions points of view. Aud tbsre were some there who actually favored the trip, rain or no rain. But the good pastor thought that It would not pay to march the youngsters through the pouting rain and have them wet and lusty the re maiuder of the day. So the excursion was declared off Arrangements have bsen made with the management of the steamer Clyde to take the Klugswood party out next Monday at 8 o'clock. YOUNG ON AMENDMENTS.

Say Til Dune to Fuv«>uraice llulldlng Throughout the City—A llullder Hays They're Too Late A rousing and largely attended meet ing of bricklayer*, was held last evening at No. 408 Shipley street. All the bricklayers aud the bricklayers'unions, of this city, were represented. The meeting was held tor the purpose of encouraging building, and thus bene fit the bricklayer. At.tbe present time Jthree fonrtba of the men of this trade are [not employed. After careful consideration and ;long discussions It was decided to reduce the wages 45 outs per day. In January a scale of $ 1 05 was adopted and at last night's meeting this was out to $3 ,60 per day. The men hope that this will be a kelp to tiia bidders and be the means of re viving building In Wilmington, which has fallen off to almost nothing. Contractor Edward Johnson was the only one seen at the Builders' Exchange this morning and asked what effect thls reduction would have on the building Interests. Hu said that he was afraid the bricklayers had waited too long before taking this action. They were advised to do no several months ago, about the time when the spring building should begin. Another thing '.hat would keep it from making a boom was the number of houses that are unoccupied in town. On tho other hand it might have a tendency to causa men of capital to build There are many persons willing to build if the price is away down and willing to keep the houses idle in hopes of making money when business la g.md.

Nbw York, June 5 —Adolph Schmidt, says the Sun of to day, hss found a hole In the Bowery. Up to date'no one baa Improved upon Mr Schmidt's exploit by discovering a bottom to the bole, although stones have been dropped In and long ropes lowered with that end in vlow. It has been rumored before that the infernal regions aud the Bowery were contiguous, aud there were those yesterday who looked at Mr. Schmidt's jit aud departed with wisely wagging lead a. This is the way Mr. Schmidt was taken In on the Bowery It was about 11 o'clock yesterday morning when he started from his home at No. 142 East Houston street to go to his place of work in a fur establishment at No. 100 Prince street. He crossed the Bowery just below Houston street Just as he set fool upon the sidewalk something hap pened. All be knows Is that things scemidto slip away, and he felt a lost sen; atlou In the pit of his stomach. This feeling gave place to one of more definite pain when he cime down on bis stomach on the (lagging. His feet dangled helplessly over nothingness, and one was knee deep In it. Although of phlegmatic temperament, Mr. Schmidt yelled. A crowd immediately gathered. Half a dozen men aeizsd Schmidt and drew him along the sidewalk until his legs emerged from the bole. Three flag stones had stuck In It, and but for these the Lerman would probably have gone to the bottom, if there la any. The by Standers cautiously approached and removed two of the Moues. The third fell in and the crowd waited to hear it strike bottom. They didn't hear anything, and for all they know it may be going yet. Schmidt sat down aud fanned himself. *1 guess I'm lucky to be on earth," he said, faintly. "I'm going home, «.il he limped, a trifle the worse for a bruised leg and scratched shoulder. Just how long that pit has bsen wait ing for some one to come along and fall Into It, nobody knows. Presently some body brought a rope, tied a stone to the end, and let It down. The stone struck the side of the well, fell out of the rope, oud was lost. Everybody listened to hear it strike, but they didn't hear any thing. Another stone was tied to the rope and lowered. It didn't reach bottom. "That hole's more than forty foot," announced the man at the other end. A second tope twenty two feet long was tied to the Grat, but still bottom was not reached. A middle aged man an nounced that he had au 80 year-old uncle who had lived In the vicinity for years, and who would undoubtedly know all about it Being requested by accla mation to produce bis aged relative Im mediately, he disappeared, returning presently with a venerable man, who toddled through the guard line with the tacit consent of the examined the pit, pok with his stick, chuckled serenely aud an nounced bia decision: "U's a bole." Not a voice was raised in d'ssent. The ancient, after looking about and assur ing himself that no one Intended to con tradict him, demanded: "Who found ill" A dozen voices eagerly explained it 1o him, and t liier« was another period of silence, everybody waiting for the old man tociucidate, as be evidently bad something on his mind. Presently he ■began : "Seventy year—mm—mm—farm honae — mm--man named (Larkins—mm— father knew—urn —herd of oowa."; "What fhas Larkins got to do with lids hole if his father did keep cows?" demanded an irreverent listener from the oiitelle of the ciicie. f g" 'Sh I ' remonstrated the nephew, deeply pained. ' He says that there was a man named Larkins lived here seventy years ago. aud that his father knew him, aud be kept cows, aud this was the well he watered 'em at." The old man nodded vigorously, and toddled away again, taking no heed of the mat) on the on'side, who observed: "Them cows must have been built on the gy-raff plan to gut their noses into that well " Shortly after the departure of the ancient a cart, bearing the name Mulry, and filled with dirt, backed up to the hole and dumped. Another load followed, aud another and another, but the bot tom had evidently dropped oat of real estate at that point, for there was no perceptible effect on the hole.
