daughter is a mother, though unmarried.
Henrietta, in a low, self possessed
voice, told the story more fully.
She said she had first met Lockwood at
the home of Mrs. Norman about four
years ago, and that it was nearly a year
later when she next saw him. After the
next meeting they became quite friendly
and frequently went to places of amuse

On one occasion she met him at the
Pilots' ball at Pohimann's, where she
had gone with her sister and brother-in

Ροκτ Washington, Wis., Dec. 12.1869,
—A terrible and peculiar drowning acci

mother and her three children were
drowned at Sankviile, on Milwaukee
River. Λ six-year-old son ,of Claude
Augustin went to the river bank and
ventured out on the ice.
It suddenly broke and he fell into the
water. His mother heard his cries and
rushed to his rescue. Frantically throw
ing herself into the icy water she endeav

minutes she was beytnd her depth and
drowning herself. Her seventeen-year
old daughter, Augusta, heard the cries
and hastened to the spot. Seeing her

The ice broke with her and she was
thrown into the chilling torrent. Mother
and daughter locked themselves together
in a death struggle and sank beneath the
water y.nd ice. They were just disappear

Augustin, who had been with the sister,
toddled out on the ice. With plaintive
cries of "Mamma, mamma, I want you,"
he ran over the ice until he reached the
hole in which his mother, his sister and
his brother were buried.
The little fellow saw his mother and
sister sink and threw himself as he sup

The Street Blocking Ordinance Puts Kail
road Men Between Two Fires.
George Truax, an engineer employed
on the Κ rie Kailroad, was arraigned be
fore Justine Stilsing this morning tor vio
lating the ordinance relating to the ob
struction of street crossings by railroad
cars. Foreman Hughes, of No. 6 Engine,
testified that he was obliged to Ualt his
engine at the Jersey avenue crossing
while on his way to a fire on Monmouth
street for nearly ten minutes.
Other firemen testified that thev were
frequently bulked in their eaorts to roach
fires hastily by these a a in a obstructions.
An ordinance forbids the rai<road com
panies obstructing the streets with trains
beyond three minutes.
Justice Stilslng, betore whom several
ca*es o£ the same nature have been
brought, reluctantly fined the engineer
$20. He oelieved the engineer was not
alone to blame. Some time ago, he said,
the superintendent of the Pennsylvania
railroad, who had been subpœned iu a
similar case, admitted that the men were
liable to suspensian tor violating the
orders of the company in reference to
signals, even though said orders conflicted
with ordinance forbieding street obstrue
The Justice inflicted the same penalty
an a fireman of tho same road for the
same o3ence only last week.

District Attorney Winfield Leads
au Audience TUltlier.
A number of fortunate ladies and gen
tlemen were personally conducted by
District Attorney Winfield last evening,
on a ramble through Mexico. The ram
ble consisted ot" α picturesque aud hu
morous talk upon onr sister Republic, at
the Carteret clubhouse. Mr. Winfield
was ui hie happiest vein, and held the
unbounded attention ot his audience
throughout liis entire discourse. His
eloquent description of the magnificent
scenery through which he passed, aud his
witty comments ou varions phazes of
Mexican life and superstition alternately
held the audience " i-pell bound or con- I
vuised them with iaughter.
When the Democratic order of Spell- i
binders is founded Mr. Winfield is my i
candidate for Chief Iiifh binder.
In hie talk the District Attorney used
two maps of the country surrounding the
City of Mexico. One he said was made
by an architect, die other by an Agtec.
"As you will see by the maps before
you, ladies aud gentlemen, he began, "1 !
am uot going to bore you this eveniug
with u weary discourse ou a philosophi
cal subject, but to chat with you by the
way if you will accompany me through
that wonder land which lies on our south
western border. 1 have approached
Mexico twice; once like a vandal from
the Xorth. aud ouce like η wise man from
the East. It is on the latter occasion I
invite you to accompauy me.
We left Havana and cast anchor one
mile rrom the shore of Yucatan. We
went to the only hotel iu Prosiresso. from '
wmch 1 would advise you to keep away.
There we partook of the great national
dish, which consists of black baaus as
round as a shot and every bit as harû,aud
pan cakes made of Indian meal. The
meal was ground by a woman, as the
grinding seems to have been done iu all
ages, we read in the Scriptures, you re
member, that two shall be griudiog at
the mill; the one shall be taken and the
other left. It is a pity that the woman
who «round the meal of which those cakes
were made had not been takeu.
"The beans are too tough for a fork
and too round to put on a k,nif.e, so the
natives make a little spoon of the cakes
into which they roil the beans ami bolt

"We approached a beautiful plantation
of hemp through a sort of triumphal arch
bearing the name of the owner, Senor
Don Patrucio Q'Hura. Ireland to the
front as everywhere! Here was this mau
raising hemp down there to hang his fel
low mau somewhere.
"We visited a city where they don't put
up signs bearing the names of the streets
as we do here. But they place au effigy
of the object for which the street is named
at its head. For example, at the head of
Flamingo street is an image of a llamingo,
at Elephant street an elephant and so on.
In Yucatan the Indians are the most
magnificent specimens of manhood I
think I ever saw, and all are pious Chris
tians. Churches spring up everywhere.
"On the eleventh day from New York
we landed at Vera Gru«s. The eity tamed
out to be clean and attractive; so clean in
fact, that I, as a Jersey City man, felt em
barrassed. The city is so low that the
sewers are built ou top. The streets are
concave in the centre and through them
the sewerage flows. Hut they have ex
cellent street commissioners there. The
turkey buzzards wade through these
sewers and cleau up everything. Unlike

"There is a good hotel at Vera Cruz
and they eutertaiu you well.
"We left there at a quarter of five
o'clock in the morning for the City of
Mexico. We were accompanied by a oar
load ot soldiers to meet the footpads, cut
throats and other pleasant characters
along the route. If we cad met uuy foot
pads I would have bet on the footpads
every time. Those were the meanest lot
of soldiers I ever saw. They were of all
coiors and wore all lands oi uniform.
The only difference between the regular
and volunteer was that the former wore
sandals and the latter did not."
Mr. Winfield then described the wild
mountain scenery through which he
passed, and said he thought it was the
most magnificent he ever saw. In speak
ing of the precipitous mountains the
train cliinbetf he said there was one p.ace
where they sttniped and bought refresh
ments from Mexican women aud then
forty·five minutes afterward they made
another stop aud there were the same
women to sell them more refreshments.
The women had walked up the mountain
side while the train hail been creeping by
u series of inclined planes.
"At 8 o'clock we "reached the Cily of
Mexico," Mr. Wiulield continued, rtau«l
at the station we saw carriages drawn up
in a manner which L would recommend
to the authorities of Jersey City. Each
carriage had a flag denoting that it was
for hire. A white flag meant the carriage
was to hire for fifty cents, a red flag for
seventy-five cents, a blue for 31, aud the
green Hag. here you see the prevalence
<."·!: the green agaiu, $1.50. It was above
the red as usual, and also the red, white
aud blue. I did not wish to arouse na
tional feeling, so I took a white flag at
flfiv cents.''
Mr. Wiulield than went, back and told
the story of Mexico from the first con
quest by Cortez to the second conquest,
by Scott, and closed with a beautiful
apostrophe to Mexico,,

matter of business. This explanation
satisfied Chris, and nothing more «Μ
thounht of the matter until one night
about three mouths ago Klappensteick
disappeared. Simultaneous with Klap
peusteick's disappearance Mrs. Schiem
mer also disappeared, as ilid a lot ol
money and household effects.
Chris, was driveu nearly crazy at the
time, but managed to hush the affair up,
aud few of the customers of the place
kuew what iiad occurred. Chris, learned
that the guilty couple had gone to Balti
more, where Klappensteick secured a
position as bartender. He thought that
Hoboken still had some charms for Klap
pensteick, however, and had a warrant
issued for his arrest.
Bast niglit Chris learued that the guilty
pair were at Meyer's Hotel. He acquaint
ed Policeman Breen and Constable Weiss
aud the hotel was visited. Klappensteick
was found, but Mrs. Schiemmer was not.
KlappeDsteick says that Mrs. Schiemmer
is iu Baltimore, but the police think that
she is iu hiding somewhere in Hoboken
and expect to capture her.
It is said that Mrs. Schiemmer has
another husbaud living in Germany.

At eleven o'clock last night Frederick
Throtn, a steamship lireniau, eutered the
dive kept by Conrad Schlatterer, at So.
94 Washington street, Hoboken, and de
manded that Lena Dwsselhorst, his wife,
who was tending bar in the place, go
home with him.
Upon her refusal to do so he pulled a
bull dog revolver and threatened to shoot
her. Her screams attracted the attention
of the police and Thro m was arrested.
When tne case was tried in the Record
er's court this morning it developed a
queer story.
Frederick Throrn, the prisoner, claimed
that the woman he attempted to shoot
was his lawful wife, which .she admitted.
He said tliac they lived at So. 57 Second
street, which the police say is a disreputa
ble hoijse.
Last night when Tlirom went home his
wife was missing. Some friends of his
told him that she was tending bur for
Schlatterer. He bought apistolaud went
Lena Dusselhorst said that Schlatterer
sentdowu for her last night and asked lier
to tend bar, as liis regular bartender was
sick. She went there and helped Schlat
terer out until her husband's sudden ap
pearance. The Hecorder told the couple
to go home and steer cieur of Schlatier
er's place in future.

At about eleven o'clock last night the
pedestriaus ou Washington street, IIo
boken, were momentarily horrified by the
appearance of what looked like a lot of
iramp9, bearing a dead body on a stretch
er. Several of the "tramps" hud kazoos
and were playing a mournful dirge.
The horror of the pedestrians was
quickly changed to laughter when it whs
discovered that the tramps were Stevens'
lustiuite boys disguised, and the "body"
a stuffed tigm a, which was supposed to
represent the much lamented Daniel
The jokers soon had a big mob at their
heels, wno followed to see what disposi
tion was to be made of the body. It was
the intention of the students to bring the
body to the morgue and one of the party
was to tell the morgue kteper that they
hi:d found McUiuly at uie Fifth street
This intention was knocked in the head,
however, by one of the crowd giving the
tin that tlau police were coming, and the
students took to their heels bringing Mr.
Mcûiuty with theui.
This is only oue of the jokes of tie col
lege boys.
Another favorite passtime of theirs is
for a crowd of about twenty to go out
about twelve o'clock at night. Whileooe
of the crowd is stationed, to be on tue
lookout for tno police the others will
carry away the shutters from a uian s
window and place them about a mile
They have aiso taken a well known

clothes ho proceeded to investigate aud
was surprised to see a dog tied to his bell.
When he released the dog ho found the
bell knob tarred.

Spirited Addresses arc Alalie.
The Protestant Episcopal archdeacons
of Hudson county met yesterday at. Grace
Cliurch, on Oceau avenue. The session
was longthy and spirited. Hector C. D.
Chapman officiated, and was assisted by
Che Hev. Mr. Clayton, of Rutherford.
Several earnest and eloquent addresses
were delivered. Archdeacon J envy, of
St. Paul's Church, in Hoboken, who pre
sided, complained of the listiesaness and
indifference shown by archdeacons to
wards many branchée of their work.
"This," the speuker said, "was enough
to make angelc weep. Under the old
regime there was much grumbling and
dissatisfaction, and as a result a change
was elfected, and the executive made
elective instead of appointive. The
change did not seem to improve the
slate of affairs any. In my opinion,"
Mr. Jeuvy said, "appropriations were
made to several churches which were not
entitled to such." Mr. Jenvy created a
mild sensatiou when he named the
churches of St. John's in Bayonne and
the Church of the Ascension in Jersey
City. When Mr. Jonvr concluded the
Hev. Mr. Valentine, of St. John's Church,
said that there was no intention on the
part of the people to seek further support,
and said that the comparison made by Mr.
Jenvy was very unfortunate.
The Hev. Mr. Bush, of Bergen, dwelt
on personal religion. Pastor Hock, of St.
Matthew's, and Mr. Bennet, of this city,
also spoke. A large number of clergy
rneu were present.
-freparllig to Organize Another Title
Guarantee Company.
The advent of a title guarantee com
pany to this city bas been a source of un
easiness to the lawyers. As oue of the
older members of the bar recently stated,
they consider the company a menace to
their interests.
The old lawyer said when he was a
young man he made a very good living
from the fees in collections uod drawing
papers. Of late years the collection busi
ness has been absorbed by collection
agencies, justices of the peftc'e and others
whom he designated as interlopers. Now
that one of the other reliances of the
lawyers is threatened, they are uo in
arms against it.
J*'or some time past a committee of the
younger lawyers consisting of Assembly
eiect James Erwln and William C. Cud
lipp has been canvassing the matter
am.jng the members of the bar and has
secured the promise of eighty-seven of
the lawyers to subscribe to the stock of a
Dew title company to be composed exclu
sively of members of the legal profession.
These will meet tomorrow afternoon
in the office of Bacot & Kecord in the
Fuller Building, when the new organiza
tion will take definite shape. It is pro
posed to form a company with a capital
of $50,000 on the general line of the title
guarantee companies now In existence.

Decision in the Old Mechan
ics and Laborers*
Bank Case.
He Holds Some of the Managers
Liable to the Depositors,
and Others Sot.
Special to the Jerxey City Neior.
Trenton, Dec. 12, !88S).—Chancellor Mo
Gill today filed a long opinion In the suit
brught by the deposition of the old Me
chanics and Laborers' Savings Bank,
which Halliard wrecked many vears ago,
against the managers to recover the
shortage in the money due depositors.
He holds some of the managers responsi
ble and acquits others.
Among other things the chancellor save
that the profession of confidence by the
Executive and Finance Committee and of
the bank in Halliard will not protect
them. They should not have held a blind
confidence in their president.
The circumstance that that officer <
habitually disregarded and violated the
charter and by-laws of the Dank should
have been sufficient to have destroyed
such confidence.
Had these Committeemen and man
agers performed their duties with ordin
ary care I am satisfied that their With
drawal might have been prevented. It
is difficult to determine for how much of
tne loss occasioned by these witdrawals
the several defendants should be held
lia Vila ■
The Chancellor, in conclusion, thinks
the defendants, Bevans, Carroll, Fita
patrick, Halliard, Kearny, McBride, Mc
Guigan, Meehan, PenrU, Keilly and
Sheeran, who were managers during the
entire time of withdrawals, should be
held responsible for all of them. He
is undecided as to whether Diltman Mil
ler, Smvth, Farrelly, Monks and Sweeny,
should be held responsible for any part
of the withdrawals because the exact
time of the withdrawals does not appear.
He thinks that upon principle the Ex
ecutive Committeemen during this period
after the Defendant Halliard should be
held to be primarily liable for
those losses but they changed so often
during the time covered by the withdraw
als that he finds it to be utterly impossi
ble to apportion the losses among them.

Several men got into an altercation last
night in a saloon on Twenty-first street,
adjoining the railroad, kepi by John
Harding, popularly known as "'Jack."
Considerable wrangling was indulged in
both within and outside the saloon. One

cheek, inflicting au ugly, but not neces

a companion Dwyer then made off. and
