Mr. Marchant told what was the state of the account of Swift's Iron and Steel works In 1M7. It amounted to Sl'J. 000, deposits, and $19,800 was withdrawn ogoerdraft. Mr. Phillips was called to show thai tfte property of these works was worth over 8300,000. J. T. Larkin, banker. was called to show that Wllshire was buj- lng beat for others than Harper, but all he could ssy was that his bank had handled the sale paper of Tlmberlake's, with en dorsement by Wilshire, and the court ruled It all out as Incompetent Timberlake, himself, was called. He said Wllshire never bought for him, nor he for Wilshlre. Wllshire had simply en dorsed soma of his paper. Mr. Blackburn said his purpose was to show that Wllshire' testimon) that he had bought for Harper, only, was not true. The court reminded counsel that Wllshire had testified that he bought a million bushels en his own account, and If the) could show l.e had bought more than this it might be done. Witness was excused.

The Blaine inter view at Paris, in which the distinguished statesman condemns President Cleveland's free trade ideas, is hailed with delight by republicans, who welcome the prospect of a national campaign fought on the Issue of protection against free trade. Upon many democrats the Interview has a dismal effect Some say that Cleveland has plared direct ly Into republican hands, and they refuse to be comforted. The free-traders are quite serene.

The Dunlsp opera company presented "The Black Hussar" at the Grand last night to a small but enthusiastic audience. The opera wasadmlrably rendered, and had the coinpanj had the stimulus of a big house, the performance would have been one of the most brilliant productions of comic opera offered to Springfield patrons for a long time. But the "beggarly arra) of erupt) benches" had the effect of dis heartening the company, and the effect was visible In fhe peformance. Notwitlistand ing. the opera was produced very accepta- iiy. ana uie company is a urge anu capaoie one. Springfield pretends to enjoy comic opera, but it poorly rewards the local man ageis when tbey bring it here. Manager Dunlap, who has managed McCanll's com panies for) ears, told a reporter last night that he never played to expenses iu Spring- held in his life. The Dunlap company includes about thirty-five people ami the chorus is a magnif icent one. The principal artists are of high ability. Harry Brown, who created the role of Lorenzo In Mascotte.and Mount' jo) Walker, who has been seen here be fore, were very funny as Uackenback, the magistrate, and Piffkow, his factotum. Mr. Cnarles T. Dungan was graceful and stately as Von Helbert, the Black Hussar, and Miss Johnson, Miss Stanley and Miss Falrbalrn were excellent as Minna, Ilosetta and Barbara, respectively. The costumes were very pretty, and altogether the "Black Hussar" was worth) of a big house. Mr. Charles T. Ellis and his excellent compaii) gave another performance of that charming comedy-drama, "Casper, the Yixller," at Black's, last night to a de lighted audl-ie. Mr. Ellis will alwa)s be warmly weltorned in Springfield. "TWO OI.Il CltONIfS." This afternoon, that great comedv team. Mills, Hms'iaw and Ten Broeck, backed by a first rate company, are amusing a mat1 luce audience at the Grand, with "Two Old Cronies." The plav will be produced again tonight The Kausas Cit) Times. speaking ot this company, sajs: "The Mntu street theater opened Its regular session to a crowded house last night with "Two Old Cronies" a well con- coiU d coined) , musical and merry. The crowd was immensely pleased and people coming out of the theater were heard con gratulating; one another that they came. Whoever got up tne company anew ins business, for each of its members plavshis part or hers, be It big or little, tor all there Is In tt They all sing well enough to please an) audience, aud well enough to please a critic s ear.

"At und the World in Eighty Da)s," will be pro duced at the Grand on Monday night by a very strong and capable company. The following reference to this pla), clipped from the Cincinnati Ennnlrcr. will be of Interest to tbe ladies: "It proved Itself a great matinee card at Heuck's ) eaterday afternoon The theater was packed with ladles ami children, all of whom greatly enjojed tbe spectacular. The piece is doing a phenomenal business this week, the house being sold at every performance, before the rise of the curtain. Many after-wltnessinc the performance, go to see it again, as one seldom sees such an all around clever production. The scenery and spectacular effects are really Immense and outdo all former attempts, while, un like other spectacular shows the coin pan v in itself is an exceptionally strong one." Seats are now on sale at Harris's, "rvr's WAitnnoBK." Pat Rooney. the inimitable, will be at Black's next Tuesday evening In that side splitting piece. "Pat's Wardrobe." The Manchester Union says of it: " The popular Pat Kooney drew a fair sized audience to the opera house last even ing, to laugh at his eccentric delineation of farcical Irish character. It proved an en tertaining evening as the hearty laughter of the audience attested. His new play, ' Pat's Wardrobe.' is the best setting that Pat Itooney has bad for tbe display ot his specialty. As Pat O'HooIlhan,' Rooney appears without variation from his familiar line. The part created for Katie Rooney. under the title of 'Christopher,' gives the little lady plenty of room to display a clever tslent that is rapidly developing." The sale of seats is now progressing at C. 11. Pierce 4 Co.'s. II77IK EVANS. The Cincinnati Knjiifrcr sa)s ot the lit tle lad) who Is to appear next Wednesday evening at Black's in "Onr Angel."

Harrv Jones was sent up from this city at the time mentioned for burglarizing the house of Mrs Belle Williams, of west High street between Center and Market streets. But nothing came out of the trial to indicate his romantic marriage w ith any southern girl, neither did lie ever figure in Sprtngheld viciety.

Schaus, No 4t south Market street Many of the merchants of Springfield are laying In big holiday stocks, anu tney make a nice display, but some how, the interior of Mr. Schaus's hand some store Impresses one with a feeling entirely different from that customarily aroused. It is much more like entering the siuuio or some art amateur, whose pen chant Ls the collection of rare and exquisite china and bric-a brae A coimolfcur could enter Mr. Schaus's store and find ma terial upon which ids artistic instincts could revel for days. Last night when the RKi-cnuc reporter v isited the store, it was flashing with the light of countless lamps and all aglow with the illumination glinted back by such an array of rich goods as one might never hope to seo in tie town of Springfield. An inspection of such a stock was nothing less than a" genuine treat. The first line which attracted the report r's special attention wxs the exquisite dis play ot Japanese brlc i-bruc. which Is such a rage now In most circles There were dainty Japanese rose-jars, shaped like an Inverted pear, and ornamented with a rich grotesqueness that baffles description; jjot pnurrl jars, tilled with a fragrant material of dned flower petals whose odor lasts for years; fancy Japanese tib'e ornaments of all shapes and sizes and colors. Including the rich, blue and the flaming v ellow of the Orient Mr. Schaus has the rose and put jtourri jars in every size and price and they are the prevailing craze tills )ear for holi day presents. Mr. Schaus's display of lamps, plain, fancy, ornamental and luxurious Is not to be approached in the cit). Some of them are perfect artistic gems, aud will make superb Christmas gifts A display that charmed the writer was the vast array of dainty decorated China. In this line Mr. Schaus acknowledges no superior in Central Ohio. He has It in such illimitable variety that one feels that sense of confusion which accompanies the in spection of anything vast or complicated. Some of this China, particularly mat which Is the creation of Havlln. of I.amoges, France. Is Indescribable dainty. The great patterer's name is a household won! In art circles aud he turns out goods as dainty as egg shells and so translucent that one can almost read through them. In art-porcelain the stock is unrivalled and any art connolteur in Springheld, whether he be a purchaser or not, ought not to miss seeing it A pleasing feature of the store Is the "bench show 'that is the dozen of pug dogs made of terra cotta and In every size, ion have doubtless noticed theinun the window. But It Is a futile task to attempt tempt to convey any idea of this brilliant stock In any ordinary newspaper account There Ls something there to please every body and ever) body should go. Mr. Schaus keeps queensware and table-ware In vast variety and you can find whatever) on need, whe her for its beauty or its utility, at prices that are likely to surprise ) on. A BRAVE LITTLE WOMAN.

The baby ran from the platform on to the track as a freight train approached. Everybody expected to see the child crushed to death. The members of the Vernona Jarbeau company were boarding the train for Pittsburg to go to Johnstown. Miss Jarbeau saw what happened as she emerged from the station, ran rapidly across the platform and first truck, reached the child, and. by herculean effort suc ceeded In drawing the little one av-ay just before the train reached that portion ot the track where the child had stood a moment before. The train passed so close it threw the noble woman to the ground, but neither she nor the child were hurt The parents of the child were so badly stared they could hardly thank Miss Jarbeau. All parties left on tbe train for Pittsburg. The act was a most courageous one. Jeff Bern stein, Jarbeau's husband, became so sick at his wife's peril he could hardly get on the train.
