PROFESSIONAL CHICKEN THIEF.
Minkry Feters Caught in the Act of ICoV-

Shakey Peters was arrested lat (Tues
day! night on the charge of jwtlt larceny.
the specific eliarce being that he had stolen
chickens. or some time the police offi
cers have known that Peters was making
a practice of stealing chickens from various
persons in the west end. hut they were un
able to fix the crime definitely upon him.
They learned, however, that Peters
would agree to furnish a certain number
of chlcktnsto parties and then steal the
requisite numlier. So many chickens have
tn)steriously disappeared in the west end
that It was finally determined to keen a
close watch on Peters. Last night Officer
Caldwell caught him In the very act of
robbing Xicholas Kriegbaum's hen roos,
and when he arrestwl him Peters had two
chickens in his hand. It's a case of work
house with Peters, and Judge Young will
probably give bun big do.

Tomorrow will be Thansgivlng, but, tu?
teorlogicnlly, it does not promise to be a
t) ideal day. Instead of the bright, crisp
weather which is conventionally associated
with tlie occasion and serves to give a

the day promises to bo dull, dispiriting and

The Magic Talisman."
Tlie patrons of the Grand were last night
given a most delightful treat in the per
formance of that now famous play, "Jim,
the Prnnvm." The audience was largeand
more t! an usually attentive and apprecia
tive. S Intent were the auditors at times
onca". hie every word every Sjllable
of the d alogue that the) almost held their
breath aud tlie silence was so profound that
one could hear his watch tick.
One of tlio strongest situations in the
play is at the point where Xina (Mrs. Rals
ton) makes tlie discovery that her husband
was the writer of the letters which separa
ted her anil rercival twenty ) ears before.
Xot a word is spoken for full two minutes.
lUlston has appended his wife's signature
to a subscription and has unconsciously
Imitated her iienuniiship. She smiles as
sliu notes how like it is to her on n signa
ture, but as she remarks thu strange simi
larity of the signature to the subscription
and that to tlie forced letter sent to Perci
val, the smile fades from her face and a
look of strange lctentness comes over
her countenance. Tlie vague thought
that her husband may be
the forger sweeps through her mind, but a
nervous. Incredulous laugh passes her lips,
and she shakes her head doubting!. Then,
as if to satisfy herself, she snatches the
letter and subscription book from the table
and closely compares thechirography. An
expression of mingled surprise and appre
hension is depicted on her countenance and,
as the stern truth is forced upon her. hor
ror, indignation ml sorrow overcome her,
and she falls back almost fainting. She
rises, confronts her husband with the evi
dence of Ins guilt, aud learns from his own
tell tale face the truth. 1 he curtain falls
and the audience has time to realize that
Miss Ada D)as is a truly bri'ilant actress.
Mr. J. K Whitinir gave a capital Imper
sonation of "Jim," ami the death scene in
the last act was a magnificent piece of
work. Mr. W. J. Ferguson played Captain
Kedwood In a brilliant manner. He was iu
fact one of the Mars of tlie performance.
The company Is a collection of artists, and
there 1 scarcely a w eek point iu the caste.
It Is without doubt one of tho strongest
all-around companies ever seen iirSpring
field, and tlie performance was thoroughly

Tlie Thanksgiv ing attraction at the Grand
will be that roaring skit, "Upside Down."
given by the Dai)s, who, by the way, are
great favorites in Springfield. Tlie piece
has created a fine Impression wherever It
has been produced, as the following from
the Providence Despatch will show:
'A very large audit neu witnessed the
production of 'Upside Down' by the Daly
company at the Prov idence opera house
last evening. Like ' aeation,' In which
the Daly company made such a success last
season, 'Upside Down' is of very light tex
ture, with not the faintest "upicioiiof plot
uut who looks for a plot nunaila)s In a
vaudeville? Certainly no one who has any
acquaintance w ith the stage and its litera
ture. The chief and the only object
of pieces of this character is to pro

tlie motion for the eroding as originally

the mover. The president called on the
members for information on tlie subject
and nearly all stated that they had veted
for the motion under the understanding
given above. The clerk was accordingly
ordered to amend the minutes. Some

To the Uonorable City Coimcl!:
We. tlie undersigned airenLs and shlnners
of the various railroads entering tlie city of
Springfield, would respectfully call the at
tention ot )onr Honorable boJy to thes)s
tematic stealinir going on in the yards and
along the tracks of these roads, within the
limits of the city. This stealing is not con-
nnea to any one class of freight or to tlie
yards and tracks of any one road, but em-

may be found upon the ground near such
cars. Th aggregate amount of such petty
aieaiing is astonnningly large.
It is not eonnned to children, but Is car
ried ou even by men ami women. Espe
cially is this so In regard to coal some ears
fallnii short as much as two tons per car
lumuer, iniiu anil vegetables. Your peti
tioners know no statute or ordi
nance adequate to remedy this
evil. The railroad yards and
tracks are considered public highways by
the people and are In consequence contin
ually filled with persons hiving no business
or right therein, making iiossilde such
depredations. We have no complaints to
make against the police force, feeling that
it is doing all that with its present size. It
is capable of doing. Tho freight yards and
tracks are private property and as such
should be protected from the depredations
ana troiu me use by the public except such
part tnereot as nny have busi
ness therein. The railroad rompanies
are in nraity accord with the snippers, as
the public use of the )ard and tracks is
also a great loss and iticouv einence to them,
resulting from tha stealing of iron and coal
and the plundering and malicious abuse of
freight and pasenger cars and other rail
In view of these facts )our petitioners
pray)our honorable body to Instruct the
city solicitor to prepare an ordinance which
shall, as far as possible, remedy this evil.
In the judgment of ) our petitioners such an
ordinance should prohibit the presence in
tlie yards or upon the tracks of any of the
railroads within the limits of the city, of
all persons whose business does not require
them to be there. The )ards and tracks
are private property of Hm companies and
should be accorded like protection as other
private property. Signed

Death or Frank c. tfovile, r.. Thl.
Mornlnic From Tpliolit ltrr.
It was as though a pall had etth 1 upon
the city today when thedreaded but not un
expected announcement cameof thodeath of
Frank C. Goode. esq., of typhoid fever, al
his residence on east X'orth street For
weeks past his life has been hanging in a
balance.but the crisis came and was p-tssed
with apparent safety. Yesterday,
however, he sustained a violent re
lapse, in tho form of a nervous
chill and it was felt at the time that Iiis re
cover) was made impossible. A consum
mation of this fear occurred In his death at
a little afttr 11 o'clock this forenoon.
The death oC Frank C. Goode Is a uni
versal bereavement Young, brilliant, tal
ented, full of life, vigor, and the hope of a
career, it is a blow that he should be cut
down in tlie prime of Ids life and
the fruition of his strength and manhood.
He was the only son of our honored fel
low-citizen, Hon. James S. Goode. who for
years occupied the common pleas bench of
this county, and whose life was
wrapped up in the man who now lies ilea ,
He was born in this city in Septembtr,
18M, and was a little over 31 ) ears old.
Six )ear ago he was married to
Miss Jennie McKnight, a daughter of Dr.
MeKnight of Mar) land, a former pastor
of the First Presbyterian church, this cit).
One child, a beautiful litt'e daughter,
survives him to add her sorrow to that of
his bereaved wife.
OTha deceased was aynungraanof brilliant
talents and legal and judicial attainments,
which promised to make him eminent, or
at least the peer of his father. Ho was a
graduate of Yale, and was admitted to the
bar in 1ST.1.
He was one of the brightest members of
the Springfield bar, and noted for his
geniaity. bright mentality and of a klndlv
disposition. It is likely that he died with
out an enemy.
The funeral will occur Friday afternoon
at 2 o'clock, from the residence ef Judge
James S. Goode, east High street Inter
A meeting of the members of the bar of
Clark county will be held at the court hou-e
