One of the iustaacss where justice tempered with mercy best subserves the law, came up in Municipal Court this morning in the case of Richard Maynard, a rather good-looking and intelligent Genuan He is a brewer by trade, belongs in Baltimore aud Bpeaks only Garmau. He came to this city to reek work and spent all the money he had without boding the desired employment. Saturday morning he was very hungry, and with the view of securing something to eat entered the butcher shop of Frank P. Beeson at Ninth aud Pine. No one there, and after waiting a short time he took up a knife aud cut about a pound of meat from a half bam lying the block. As he was going out George Staats, who works for Beeson, and who witnessed the transaction called to him to give back the ham, but, not under standing English, Richard kept on. The boy called an officer and Maynarl arrested. When arraigned he pleaded guilty, and, through Lewis Hammerer, said he was very hungry. He cried like a child and seemed lo be In fear. The city solicitor said that in view of the circumstances he thought it would be no miscarriage of justice if the case was dismissed, as the man had been in the cell for two days and had been already sufficiently punished. The slices taken 80 cents, butin cutting it off damage to the extent of $1 was done to the ham, Judge Bali said that while the amount of a theft bad nothing to do with the fact, still he would entertain the motion Mr. Beeson also said that he didn't want to see the man fur »her punished. The case was dismissed. Patrick Dougherty is a man with a record. He has spent eleven months and two days ont of a year In New Castle jail for drunkenness, aud juetgotout Monday.

Mrs. Annie McGonegal, who lives at Kentmere, was charged «. ith abnsing William Lundy and his wife, neighbors.

A Boston dispatch of to day says; "The committee having in charge the extensive arrangements for the great Christian Endeavor Convention, which opens hero next Wednesday, have now practically completed their work and are ready to receive the delegates as they arrive. These arrangements have been most thorough, and the committee an nounces that 65,000 persons can be pro vided for without confusion ordlscomfort. • Two large tents, 254 by 180 feet, with a seating capacity of 8.000 each, have been pitched on Boston Common and will be ready for occupancy by to night These tents, together with the Me chanics' building, will be the principal meeting places daring the week, although services will be held dally in many churches in the city. During the noon hour 125 companies of Christian Kndeavorcrs will dally visit the large manufacturing firms, dry goods houses »cd places of business and bold services there with the employes. "One of the moat difficult problems confronting the committee has been how to feed a multitude in the short time be tween the sessions This has been solved by turning Machinery Hall in Mechanics' Building into a mammoth restaurant, with a seating capaaity of 2 800, where everything from a dairy lnuch to a table d'hote dinner can be obtained, "Special attention has been given to the vocal exercises of the convention, and for the past three months a chorus of 8.000 voices has been re hearting the songs to be sung.

JAMES M'CLURG WALKS INTO THE CHRISTIANA WHILE DAZED. He Had Been Celebrating the Foutth of July and Went, to Sleep ou a l'lle of Lumber at the Foot of kliipley Street-Ills Body Found—The logoest. While swimming in the Christiana yesterday near the Cool Spring loe Company's dock, John Davis, of No 209 Market street, aud Authony Miller, of No. 101 Washington street, noticed a body fl rating in the water. They notified Sergeant Howgate of ths patrol, who secured it aud then notified Deputy Coroner Cliaudler, who had it taken to the morgne and made an investigation. The body was that of James McClnrg, employed as a laborer ou the farm of Thomas Gray, near Hbellpot, aud who has been missing since last Thursday night or Friday morning It was badly bitten by fish, bat showed no signs of fonl play. The supposition 1 b that the man walked off the wnarf at the foot of Shipley street while under the Influence of llqnor, and this is born out by the statement of a companion,Samuel McCor mick,of Seventeenth and Union streets who wan the lost man who saw him alive. According to hia testimony the two hed been celebrating the glorions Fourth, and after drinking a large quantity of ilqaor made their way to the wharf at the foot of Shipley street snd went to sleep on a pile of lumber. About 2 o'clock Friday morning be woke. Both men were there then, and a half-pint battle of whiskey lay beside eaoh. Mc Cormick starred to go home but went the wrong way and walked into the river. The shock partially Bobered him and he swam across, only to be stuck iu the mud. Releasing himself he swam back, hut wheu he rot to the wharf he was so exhausted that he could only hold to a spike aud call for help Night Watchman McLiughlin threw him a rope aud drew him out, when he started to look for McClurg Not fiudiug blta he came to the conclusiou that he had gone home and followed suit. On bis way he met Sergeant Black and related to him the occurrence, but the officer could flud no trace of the man and put the story down to the imagination of a drunken man. An Inquest was held this morning by Deputy Coroner ChandUr Thomas Gray, the milkman at Rtverview for whom McClurg worked, said he left Thursday at 5 p ru , after cutting wheat all day McClurg had beeu accustomed to going ou monthly sprees Samnel McCormick told his story materially as above. He kuew McClurg for a dozen or more years Met him at Biown's Hotel about 11 o'olock Thurs day night, bat didn't know anything afterwards until he found himself iu the water. Sergeant Black met McCormick at Delaware avenue and Jefferson street aud listened lo his story He told him to find out if McClurg was mlastug. Captain William Campbell aud Edward Godfrey, who secured the body and towed it to the dock, testified to that fact The verdict was death from accidental drowning, McClurg was a native of Ireland, and baa a wife aud family iu that cuuutry. He hag been over about twelve years McClurg w«h 36 year of age and prior to working for Gray was em ployed by the DuPonts and later by George Walker near Spring Hill'brewery He was a member of No 126 Star of Bethel, Orange lodge A subscription was raised to bave him bnried at Riverview Cemeiery, to which the members of the coroner's jury donated their fees The Interment was made by Deputy Coroner Chandler this afternoon. »egged Them to Lo»« No Opportunity.

FORD SCORES A VICTORY Chancellor Wolcott Discharges the Rule Against Him. DE0I8I0N UPON THE TESTIMONY To Have Prepared Opinion Involv ing a Complete Review of the Testimony Would Have Entailed More Labor Than tho Chancellor Cared to Undertake— Peter .1. Ford Supremely Happy Ret-rJ Ford won a notable victory over the Jessnp and Moore Paper Com pauy this moi'nlng, when Chancellor Wolcott handed down a decision dis charging the rnle against him. Those preseut In behalf of the Ford Morocco Company were Mr Font and John Biggs his lawyer. The paper company was repieeeuted by Willard Hanlabory, Jr., aud Levi C Bird. The full text of the decision Is as follows ; "Gkntlkmen; I propose now to an - nounce my decision—not opinion—In the case of the Jessnp and Moore Paper Company ve. Peter J. Ford. "Perhaps the magnitude of the in forests Involved in this case and the great, skill and ability »with which it was conducted] by I counsel on both aides would Beem to demand a more elaborate treatment of the subject than the mere decision either discharging the rnle or making it absolute; bull have determin ed to decide or dispose of the matterjnpon the evideuoe submitted entirely, with out reference to the legal propositions that were raised at the threshold of the hearing of this rule. My decision will not elaborate the facta. To have pre pared an opinion involving a complete review of the testimony would entailed an amount of labor which I did not care to nudergo. In fact, I was not able to do it if I had beau so disposed "Oa the 24th day of November, 1885, an Injunction was Issued directed against Peter J. Ford, Thomas Ford and Thomas F. Ryan. Last 8prlng—some time last April, I believe—a rule was laid upon Peter J. Ford to show cause why he should not bs punished for contempt, In consequence of the alleged viola tion or bresch of the Injunction leaned in 1886 -Peter J. Ford being the only survivor of Thomas Ford aud Thomas F. Ryan, deceased. At the hear ing of the rule a motion waa made to dispose of the same, npou the ground that the factory had beoome the property of, and was operated by a corporation knowu SB the "Ford Morocco Company,' and was not the property of Peter J. Ford, nor was it under bis oontrol. That was the basis of the motion. "At the conclusion of that argument, aud before any step was takeb, an amended injunction had been discovered arnoog the papers aud presented to the court for its consideration In determining that preliminary question. "Now 1 do not propose to dacido that question une way or the other. I pro pose to decide this esse upon its merits as disclosed by the facts of the testi tnonv. If I attempted to so decide it, I should bs confronted with this difficulty; The late Chancellor Hsnlsbury had it in mind that the original injunction was not sufficient to puulsh Peter J. Ford for contempt, that Injunction was present in his mind a doubt as to the sufficiency of the original injunction, according to the changed conditions— that is, the trausfer of the property. If the amended injunction was necessary in order to punish Peter J. Ford, or the corporation of which he was a member, then theie conld have been no violation of this amended Injunction, because it had never been published or made known He had no knowledge of it ; and certainly a man cannot be punished for the per formauce of an act whloh is prohibited by an order or a decree whloh bas never been published or circulated. "But I do not propose to decide that qnestlon. I propose to decide this ease eutirely upon its merits, and leave that matter uulonched or undisturbed. 1 shall do that very briefly. "There was very strong testimony on the part of the complainant that Peter J. Ford was guilty of a violation of, or a breach of this Injunction ; and if the case bad depended upon the testimony of the complainant, he certainly would have been proven guilty. But Peter J Ford meets that testimony with evldenoe quite as strong, if not stronger, that he li not guilty "1 believe it is conceded on both sides that unless some damage or Injury resulted to the complainant because of the discharge of luld or liquid or any matter from that factory, or otherwise, be conld not be held guilty. Becauae, for an tot which can be of no iajnry to the party invoking the aid of the court la that respeot.the de fendant cannot be held guilty of contempt of, or breach ef an injunction against said act. I think it is conceded on both aides that there must be soma damage or ioj ury to the complainant before this extraordinary remedy oau be Invoked "As I have already said, here is strong testimony ou both sides; and in the presence of such a strong conflict of testimooey, whiob la entirely irreconcil able—for it wonld baffle the lngeunlty of the most acute to reconcile the two cur rents of testimony, which are directly tna autlpodes of each other—how can aov mind escape doubt, and a setious and gtave doubt,that this defendant is guilty of a breach of that order lu tba*. injunc tion. Assuming, now, that Mr. Ford, though not the owner of this property, can be guilty of a contempt, if he had been so proven? "In view of the fact of this grave doubt existiug In my mind, it is utterly impossible for me to decide that Peter J. Ford is guilty of any contempt. Tbere la a serious doubt In my mind, aud that doubt must control because of the consequences that wonld follow ; and there Oeing such a doubt, the defendant in this case is entitled to the benefit of ttiAt doubt; and I so decide, and this rule must be discharged." ave and the very fact l>e elgned an amended is| proof that there Sand«? »t («uco M.

Police Commissioner ltoosevelt Draws tlie Lines So Tant Tliat Only experienced Rounders Could Pass the Side Doors and Order "Two Up"—Growlers In Disguise. Nkw York, July 8. —It wns n pitched Imt.tlo yesterday liotwcon tho police und the Htdoon keepers. On ouo hand thcro wns, generally spunking, a sincere effort It) enforce the excise luw ; on tho other n dogged determination to violate it. In some Instances it wus plnin that tho polico were milking the old compromise between friendship and duty; but, taken nil in nil, the Htruggle wus a genuine one, and brought, Into piny the relntlvo powers of the opjKisIng forces. Unquestionably the saloon keepers «cored a victory. Hundreds of them did business in spite of the isiliee. Arrests in plenty wore made, und police gnorda wore placed at the doors of rebel lious groggerles. Front and side doors were dosed, shades were raised, revealing tho Interiors, and all the outward evidences of law and order were maintained. Still the liquor traffic went on, and tho jioUce apparently were powerloas to stop it. That was the situation yesterday. In the sense of a general enforcement of tho excise law It was not a dry Sunday. Y et there were thousands aud thousands of thirsty mortals who could not see it that way. To such luckless ones who did not know "the man on the door," or wero not up to the I nntimenible tricks that were being played on the i«illce, the day must have seemed truly dry. But drink was like money. There was plenty of it, and In order to get It you had only to know how. Tho stranger might have traveled tho whole town over and retired from tho search with a routed tongue. Itut tho Monte Crlato with a "man on the door" acquaintance found that a world of Intox icants wus his. Trick* to Get Drinks, It wits the «nloons on the able streets that did most, of tho buslnoas, mid tho heathen Chinee wasn't In It with them for the dark trick* and peculiar ways they employed to outwit tho bluecoats. A good example was furnished by the «aloou of ex-Assomldyman Michael Callahan, In Chatham square. There Is a cigar atom next door, and a rear door of this letuls to CuUuhan'« linck yard. Never beforo In tho history of that, to hin'eo shop did so many customers |»ihh over Its threshold—and eustoruurs with market luviket«, satchels, paper bags and every imaginable redbptoolo In which a "growler" of boor could lie corrled; for It, was Is'er for whloh they went. Of course they didn't get It in the cigar store. Tho fountain of nmlier fluid was flowing In Callahan's Kick yard. There an awning had Wien stretched, and all tilt* category of drinks was os froo us air to unybody wbo had tho price. The sahsins that closed their front rooms but sold drinks in a Iwtck npart ment were numerous. This was the most general form of deception. To do this tho sabs in keeper in many Instances had to take a next dtxjr neighbor into bis oonfl denco or his pay, and through the adjoin ing house tho stream of "growlers" and thirsty ones would make their way to the roar room of tho saloon, climbing over tho hack foueo on a ladder. Tho return trip, after a prolonged courtship of the liquors, was frequently attended by hard falls and broken heads. The gunrds placed nt saloon entrances found that their Intended tactics hml been forestalled. Hitherto the policeman lias watched his chnnco and darted after a customer Into a saloon In hope of detect ing the bartender in the act of selling, hltie Doors Double Guarded* Tills would be sufficient to constitute a ease of exposure under the luw. Some times the door would bo slummed In the policeman's face, but by putting hts foot against it he could cutoh a glimpse of the Interior that served him for the punaise of evldenoe. A great many of the saloon keepers put a stop to this yesterday by placing a guard of two or three men at their doors. The customer would pass In and stand ready to make a lightntngllke entrance at the inner door. At the same time the saloon kte|>er'H forocH would block the doorway. At a given Higual tho inner door would fly o|s-n anti the customer dart In. The hlueooat could not. get past the line of buffers In time to put his No. 12 against the closing door. It was re markably quick work, and os the day wifi-o on and praetlco brought perfection there wasn't tho slightest show for the In truding policeman. It became a game of freeze out, In which the saloon keeper was a sure jvlnnor. One rumsellor in the Fourth ward car ried on business in n loft at the top of the house. He dbl a rushing trade, and be fore the day ended this lofty barroom was dubbed tho "roof garden." Nearly every saloon in the neighborhood sold more or less during the day, occasionally closing up so ns to get tho iwliee to move off in some other direction. .Scarcely would tho policeman bo around tho corner when tho side door, or whatever tho way of entrance was, would open again, and drinks would flow os before. There was ouo place in t he Fourth ward tliut was really closed. It is the saloon on the corner of Oak and James streets. It was sold out Friday under foreclosure. On tho avenues there was a pretty gen eral observance of the law. It seemed os if the proprietors of those places had acted upon a unanimous understanding and had closed up all along the line. There was a break here and there, however, as was attested by the occasional entrance •r exit of a wayfarer from a hallway, or the still more conclusive evidence of a sus picious looking market hasket or port manteau. Men and women with traveling hags in hantl were unusually numerous on the streets. The I sirs of the uptown hotels were all dost,d. Guests were served with drinks only when they ordered u meal. Some of these repasts weflt too light to satisfy the appetite of a hungry s|>arrow, but the ho tel keepers said that nobody hod the right to dictate how much a man should eat. With this dictum as their guide the sale of cocktails, ginrickles and "cobweb chas ers" went on without any serious Inter ruption. One ingenious device for evad ing the law was practiced perhaps more than any other. It was the service of ferandy or some Mth black coffre. other spirituous liquor An English Dramatist Dead.
