Ji'tw Orifiun HUtca.
A suit of considerable Importing to
the citizens of New Oileans for t&e Det
ter part of the past two days engaged
the attention of th United States Cir.
Bit Court. Judge E.C. Bi'lings presid
ing. Tbe case is J. J. Thomas et hi
against John Ward. It is a suit for
damages In the amount of $10,000.
The attorney for the plaintiff is Mr.
W. S. Benedict, who U pitted against a
legal tiio composed of Messrs. Thomas
J. Semmes & Legendre and J. Ad
Cozier, who appear for the defense.
The question involved is whether a
business firm can unlawfully obstruct
the banquette with its goods with no
resultant damages accfuing through
accident or death to persons passing,
should they in any way contribute to
their own lojury through coming in
contact with the obstruction; whereas
no accident could possibly have ocjur
Jd if the obstruction had not been in
hfr way, and unlawfully for the pedes-i-
trian to come in contact with. The
- facts of the case are that on the after
f noon of the 15th of May, 1885,
Thomas' four-year old boy, wnuem
charge of his sister, nine years of age,
in some way came in contact with a
"mud drum," eighteen feet long,
and occupying a portion of tte
banquette in front of Ward's foundry,
on Calliope street. The "drum,"
1 which was on two pieces ot timber
; across the gutter, was "scotched," ti

on the banquette. It had Deen mere
for some time, and on the day men
tioned, while the young girl was look
ing elsewhere, the little boy, through
some means, caused the "drum" to roll
over upon him, causing a compound
frapfuru nf thfl thiorh.
(The defense is that it was negligence
on the part of parents to allow their
child to be on the street without being
in charge of a competent nurse; conse

Bhould not recover damages.
T The plaintiff claims that the streets
and banquettes are free and open high-
11 ways, and obstructions in either are
i ! unkwful and in direct violation of the
city ordinances prohibiting such ob
, I ! structions to the free use of the high
ways, and the plaintiff should recover
for damages caused.
The court charged the jury that it
was for them to decide whether the
sister was a competent nurse; if so,
and her Inattention at the time of the
J accident was not unreasonable, the
pmnun: snouia recover, n, uuwever,
the girl was incompetent to care for
the child, the accident occurred
through the "jo: tributary negligence'
of the parents, and he cannot recover.
The jury returned a verdict for the
plaintiff John Thomas in the sum of
f 500. and the minor cnua, win. v.
Thomas, in the sum of $1,000.
Some Small Fancies.
Ribbon bows are everywhere now. Borne
very pretty ones are made for the hair in
various ways, two of which are shown here
On the left is a roiette made of ribbons
cut in fish-tail points and secured to hairpins
i for convenienca in arranging the hair. The
same style of rosette, made a trifle flatter

,on bows now fashionable for brightening
'he oorsaee and wearing in the hair. It is
Jmade of feather-edged groj grain ribbon, the
colors comprising maroon, pink, chartreuse,
lavender, gold and ecru. I he ribbon is ar
ranged in pointed loops and ends, which are
strapped together with a twisted cross piece
in two colors.
Here are shown two tasteful ways of fin
lshing off dress sleeves at the wrist Tbey

In fashion so long.
With Tailor Salts.
With the severer tailor suits worn with
masculine collar and cravat young ladies
wear a high straw hat the color of the dress,
made of rough straw, or else in an open
braid that has no lining. The rim turns up
closely behind, and rolu also on the laft side,
while the right side is straight, or in ex
treme cases is flattened low against the
bead. The brim is bound with velvet, and a
narrow velvet band encircles the crown.
ladder of cross bowg of ribbon may extend
np the back of the crown, or else it may have
long, erect loops with a bunch ot long-
stemmed blossoms, usually of very small
For older ladies to wear with tailir suite
the newest bonnets are of rough, dark straw,
made small, yet very high in the crown, so
that the extremely high bows of last season
may be dispensed with, and instead a rosette
of velvet ribbons is used. This large rosette
may be all ot one color, but is more often of
two or three colors, made with all the loops
, of each color massed together and forming
third of the rosette. Thus, on a black rough
straw bonnet there are cream, pale yellow,
and black loops in the rosette; for a blue
dress, dark blue, dark red and cream white,
or else pale blue loops form the rosette
with brown dresses are white, yellow, and
brown loops. This trimming is also seen on
the black tulle bonnet worn with dressy
black suits, and is especially pretty when the
, fashionable pUtache green is used with pals
!itnM p'Jow ami eram whit. On a choco
late brown tuib bonnet the rosette may be
of pink, cream enl chocolate color. The
velvet ribbon in these rosette i only half an
inch wide, and is prettiest with purled edges.
This forms the entire trimming for the bon
net The velvet throat bow is of the darkest
color in the rosette, and is made of two long
loops, or else merely pointed end that are
scarcely an inch wide, yet are long enough
to reach back to the ears. Small jeweled
pins are thrust in these loops, and are thought
to give more style to the toilet than It used
as breastpins; indeed, they are almost tbe
nly jewelj now worn out-of-doors.
Fabrics for the Seaside.
It is astonishing, seeing what an annual
affair going to the seaside is, that people do
not yet understand how the sea air will prey
on knots of ribbon, pretty enough when new,
and all the Sittings and drapings of a cos
tume that look well in Rotten Row and not
at all well by the "lone sea wave." Ginghams,
zephyrs, holland and dark linen withstand
the assaults of wind and wave best; and
serge, cashmere, nun's cloth, canvas or
vicuna in wool; but not cheap, badly dyed
stuffs, nor muslin, which loses its stiffness in
an hour or ro. And yet, at the fashionable
watering places, you see every day people in
flimsy washing gowns and rich brocades
utterly unsuitable to the occasion, and fail
ing in the simplicity and cleanliness which
should distinguish such dresses. Very big
lata are worn, and far too many flowers, by
the seaside.
How ignorant, too, women seem to be
about dyein;. The aniline dyes, soluble by
perspiration, not only dye arms and legs of
undeslred tints, but bring out eruptions.
Violet, red, bright blues and yellows should
be selected with care. To be healthy, cloth
ing should only be treated with vegetable
dyes. Any dye, as a broad ruta, is bad that
imparts undesired color to the skin.
I.lttle Girls' Summer Gowns.
Girls from 2 to 5 years wear yoke slips.
with sash of the material sewed in the side
seams and tied behind. These are of the
new open-worked lawns in stripes, checked
ginghams and .white muslins, and in all cases
the yoke and sleeves can be white, Guimpes
of white mnslin, with low-necked gingham,
Chambery, cashmere or lawn dresses, are
worn by girls from 4 years upward. Belted
es, with a yoke and full round skirt
tucked and hemmed, are for girls from 4 to
12, or even for girls in their teens. Two
piece dresses, with a kilt skirt and cutaway
jacket, are liked for pique or .the dimity
fabrics. Low-necked pquare yokes of velvet
are used with India silk, challi and foulard
dresses, but all low-necked dresses have a
white muslin guimpe or front piece. V open
ings, with embroidery let in and the waist
laced across, are used on Chambery, pique,
cashmere, and whit muslin dresses.
Clasps for Wraps and Dresses.
These are still in high favor. They are
used on cloaks and scarfs. They fasten skirt
drapery, and they are used instead of a
breastpin. It is necessary to sew thera
firmly In place where they are wanted to re
main. Then they stay, and can be hooked
and unhooked, as required. They are made
of wood, metal, colored glass and other
At the top of the illustration is a jet dress
clasp, which has the fastening concealed
under the disk at tbe center, Below is a
larger clasp of interlaced work in bronzs,
ornamented with chain pendants.
Little Girls' Bats.
Misses and children's hats are very pret
tily trimmed. Leghorn straws are lined
with fine gauze ruchings and have large
falile bows. Quite as much care U be
stowed on the "garnitures" of English straws,
straws in open work and coarse straws.
They also have the under part ot tin brim
lined with ruchings or plaitings, and often
the outside of the bats are covered with
shell-shaped lace fastened down here and
there under flowers or ribbon rosattos. U
the brim of the round bat is raised on one
side, a band of ribbon is taken across it and
fastened on the crown under a bow or a
bunch of flowers. Sometimes there are three
or four small band of faille arranged in
this way. They are bordered on either side
with tiny ruchings or gauzs or tulls. Many
children's hats are covered with flowers.
New York Times.
Etamlne dresses are trimmed with ecru
lace, embroidered galloon in one color, or
with cachemire and Algerian designs, and
bands of "bretonne" embroidery. These
bands will also serve to (rim canvai goods,
navy blue serges for children's dresses and
jerseys and jackets. White breton jackets
are the style for wear under jerseys. They
are embroidered with colored silk or wool, or
dotted with tiny gilt stars. Jerseys and
jackets are trimmed in the same way with
serins of mother of pearL Scotch plaid
siirah or foulard, combined with plain goods.
wakes very pretty suit There are striped
foulards and fancy checked materials used
for the same purpose. There may be revers
and velvet bretelles or plaited guimpes on the
waists. Foulard and surah are to be much
Upper skirts grow fuller.
Under skirts remain plain.
Red is at present much used in Paris, par
ticularly for trimmings and linings under
transparent tissues.
Poke bonnets or round hats and white
parasols are worn as part of bridemaids'
toilet for summer wedding.
Short petticoats are being made of tbe
daintiest and most delicate materials and in
the most exquisite and artistic designs.
The most fashionable modistes still declare
their faith in the comfortable jersey waists,
by importing them in almost every color.
Despite their inexpensiveness, rough straw
hats remain fashionabla year after year, and
each season seems to add something to their
stamped "satinettes" and Alsatian cre
tonnes make becoming and serviceable
dresses, and they are quite Indispensable for
country wear.
A caprice of the moment In millinery is
that of veiling with tulle various parts ot
she bonnet or round hat. For instance, the
coronet front, instead of being faced with
velvet, now has tulle puffed on it dotted
A Protest from President Bond
Against the Action or me nauroaa
Special to Commercial Herald.
Jackson, June 5. The railroad com
mission recently reduced the passen
ger tariff on the Vicksburg & Meridian
railroad, which is a part ot tine ljueen
& Crescent system, from four to three
cents per mile. The VicKSburg &
Meridian road has been declared in
solvent by the federal court, and to
day Frank S. Bond, rf c-iver of the V.
& M., and president of tbe entire sys
tem, files with the commission a
lengthly argument protesting against
the proposed reduction from the net
earnings of the road. He says that
three cents per mile would net be what
the law allows "a fair and just return
on the value of the railroad, etc."
In figuring the net earnings he
bases bis calculation on the liability of
tbe road and not its value. The stock
and mortgage exceed $12,000 per mile,
and its value is not more than f 20,000.
He states that the matter has been
submitted to judge R. A. Hill, of the
Federal conrt, who suggested that he
confer with the commission and report
to him for further instructions. The
commission, after mature reflection,
refuses to lecall the order fixing the
rate tt three cents per mile. Tbe
records of the Federal court contains
an order to Receiver Bond to comply
with the commission's order, and at
'the end of three months report results
to the court. It seems a conflict be
tween tbe court and commission is im
minent. The Memphis and Tennessee
railroad has filed its passenger tariff,
reducing the rate to three cents per

A Tie-Up of the Street Cars In New
York. Brooklyn and Jersey City.
New York, June 5. This is the
third time in the first half of the year
that all of the surface roads in the
city have been tied up. This time the
tie-up includes not only Brooklyn, but
all the Jersey City roads as well. It
was remarked yesterday by one of the
executive board of tbe Empire associ
ation that the proceedings of the board
had been made too public. He prom
ised the reporter hereafter they would
not be able to anticipate the action of
the board. He said the next district
meeting would be held in some place
where it would not be found out by
reporters. The result of the meeting
last night shows that the first part of
the remarks were no idle boast. The
latter part was not made good this
time. Early in the evening it became
known that a special meeting of Dis
trict Assembly No. 75, Knights of
Labor, had been called together
for a meeting last night. The reporters
were on hand. The meeting continued
without an interval until 4 a.m. to
day. From time to time men came
out of tbe hall and went away, others
came and took their places; altogether
nearly one hundred delegates were
present from the twenty-eight car
associations of the city. One singular
fact was noted in the absence of the
entire executive board. It then
developed that the board was in
secret session down tiwn some
where and none of the ofheers of
the assembly were in attendance.
From ssme of the members it was
learned that the delegates had passed
resolutions approving tbe course of the
executive board and ordering the con
tinuance of the strike on the Third
avenue line. It was whispered around
that warrants were OHt for the arrest
of certain members of tbe executive
bosrd. Each man, as he came out, was
questioned, but denied in the most sol
emn manner that any word had been re
ceived from the leaders as to their in
tention. They professed ult;r ignor
ance as to the objzet of the secret meet
ing. It became known to reporters
that some men were expecting orders
for a general tie up, and with excite
ment they waited the result. At 5
o'clock this morning news bad been
received from the executive board,
and many of the delegates left the ex
ecutive board and went home. About
forty remained in the hall. Shortly
altjr 3 o'clock two young men arrived
and went into the hall. The doors
were closed until 3:50 a m., when the
delegates came out with a stern set o(
faces and dispersed. None of them
would answer questions, and it appear
ed they had been cautioned before
leaving the hall to avoid all conversa
tion about the strike. Last of all caine
the acting chairman of the meeting.
To Questions as to the actions of the
board he hesitated and then quietly said :
" Tbe executive board have ordered a
general tir-up of all the surface lines
in this city and Brooklyn. He refused
to talk further on the subje&t and as
serted that he did not know where tbe
board met to make their plans.
' From another source it was learned
that at the last meeting of the district
assembly that when the new board
was appointed, it was given three
weeks to effect a peaceable settlement.
Failing in that tbe last resource was a
general.tle up. The members of the Car
Association have felt the weekly as
sessment burdensome and have be
come exasperated by the delays and in
action of previous executive board.
They demanded a general tie up as a
remedy for ending the Third avenue
strike, and refused to listen to conser
vative members of the board. With
ditflculty members have been induced
to postpone the tie up until now. Ed.
Mulford, one of the present counsel
lors of the board, several days ago re
fused to attend any meetings of the
board and has been at headquarters
bet very 1 ttle of the time. Grant, the
district master workman, who was
forced along with the current action
taken by the board, is said to be unan
imously opposed by the men. They
say they have done this to force the
Third Avenue road, through interven
tion of other companies, to come to
time, and say the fight will be
forced all along the line. The
old story of combination between
car companies was reported again as
one of the causes of the strike. The
feature about the tie up is that no
proclamation or explanation accom
panied the order to tie up. The prin
ciple of the order bas been apparently
lived up to, "never tell a thing until
its done." ,
The blow struck was a sudden and
crushing one. The prlicemen along
the streets this morning hailed it as a
short and decisive settling of the
strike which had worn on their
strength neaily two months. Although
the order to tie up was not sent to the
roads until three o'clock this morning,
by lour a.m. it was known through
out the city. The police depart
ment was posted on the, facts
early, and by 6 a.m. every depot was
guarded by details of police. The
drivers and other employes worked
through the night as usual, until the
time for the first day-cars to run in the

pear for work, and the assistant
superintendent was told of the
order to tie up. He merely
asked if there were any grievances
of the men and was told there was not

The Maxwell Jury Unable tp Agree.
St. Louis, June 5. When the jury
in the Maxwell case retired last night
tun juij-iuuiu. juaruu o. liarueu
was chosen foreman, and David S.
Childs secretary. Burnet was sup
posed to be the one favorably to the
defense more than any other juror, and
wnen t&e first ballot was taken this
belief was partially confirmed, for he
was among the three who did not vote
for conviction. A second ballot was
taken after some discussion, which re
sulted in bringing Barnet over for con
viction, and ten to two for conviction
was announced as the vote. Tbe suc
ceeding ballots up to the time for ad
journment were identical with the lat
ter with no prospects for a change.
There are two Knights of Labor on
on the jury, and the fact that Mc
Donald, of the prosecution figured
prominently in the wire-tapping
scheme at the time of the strike, in
fluenced many to think the two knights
are prejudiced and will hold out
against the ten stubborn men, and
thus give the prisoner a new trial.
When then the criminal court con
vened at 10:15 o'clock this morning,
the deputy who had gone earlier in the
day to the jury to see if they were
ready to make a report, entered the
room, and held a short whispered
conversation with Judge Vcn
Wagoner, who immediately called the
next case on the docket. It became
evident then that the jury were not
unanimous. The first ballot taken
this morning showed the fact that one
more bad decided upon conviction and
tbe ju t verdict, for the vote stood 11
to 1. Who this one may be report has
much to say. Some assert that
he ii an escaped convict and
has been known under an alias
for seven years. Should this be the
fact he, of course, perjured himself
when he was being examined as to
eligibility to serve on the jury, and
would necessitite a new trial. Aa es
caped convict has no rights as a citl
zen,ana this would render a verdict by
a j ury of which he was a member void
A complete investigation of this man'i
career is now being made, and many
think it will confirm the rumors about
him. Maxwell bears up wonderfully
well under the strain which he bas
been enduring for the past three weeks,
ana even this morning, when the an
nouncement that only one of the jurors
was holding cut against conviction,
the hopeful expression on his fac;
diminished slightly.
The jury in the Maxwell murder
case have just this moment (12:15
p.m.) returned a verdict of "murder
in the first degree."
A Lamp In the Hands of a Child
Causes a Loss of $20,000 and Her
Pittsburg, June 5. A Scotdale,
Penn., special says : "A Are broke out
here at 9:30 last night and spread so
rapidly that for a time it was feared
that tbe town would be entirely de
stroyed. The flames were finally
checked, but not until fight business
houses had been consumed, and a num
ber of other buildings torn down to
stay the progress of the fire. It start
ed in the Enterprise store on Broad
way and was caused by the explosion
of a lamp in the hands of a Utile girl.
The total loss was $200,000, on which
there was very little insurance. The
little girl in whose bands the lamp ex
ploded is missing and many suppose
she bas perished in the flames. Wm.

The Memphis Crop Report.
Memphis, J une 5. The cotton crop
reports for the Memphis district.which
embraces West Tennessee, North Mis

Alabama, to be published to-morrow
by Messrs. Hill. Fontiine & Co., will
say the weather in the main has been
favorably for cotton. This U espe
cially true regarding Tennessee. From
Arkansas and Mbsueippi some com
plaint is made of prolonged dry
weather.whlch has retarded the growth
of the young plant. In Alabama, how
ever, the reverse is reported, and sev
eral of our correspondents complain of
too wet weather, which has prevented
them from making crops. Good stands
are reported and the condition of the
cotton crop is on the whole promising.
Where the weather has been favorable
planters report the crop clear and well
worked and with a favorable season
there is every promise of a more than
average yield of coUon throughout the
district. Sincj June first generous
rains have fallen In many localities
where complaint had been heard of
too dry weather, whici adds to the
hopeful outbok.
Tbe condition of the corn crop is
only fair. It has suffered from drouth
in many sections, but not to any appre
ciable extent, and with a propitious
season the yield will be equal to last

The Chicago Grand Jury and trt
Chicago, June 5 The grand jury
reported to Judge Roberts this after
noon. The report deals entirely with.
Anarchist cases, which thejuiy tzz
been considering for the past three
weeks. The jury reports that it baa
found true bills against such persons as
have been instrumental in causing rlnta,
and have refused to find bills against
persons who seemed to be weak tools
of designing men. We ind that the
attack on the police on May 4th was
the result of a deliberate conspiracy,
the details of which are now la the
possession of the officers of the
law, and will be brought out
when these cases shall be reached la.

its own, and that it was chiefly under
the control of men who were connected
