The managers of a certain well
known down-town restaurant, not over
a mile from Fourth street, have a
scheme of marking all the new dishes
on their bills of fare with asterisks. A
day or two ago several gentlemen went
in for lunch, and. standing near the
table where they look their seats, saw
one of the young men employed to re
move the "soiled"' dishes. One of the
gentlemen casually asked him if there
were any asterisks on the bill of fare.

Concludes Its Side of the Fa-

ment Case.

of the Council's Annual
Meeting 1.
Kerosene Catches Fire—Casi
no's License Revoked--
Other News.
The state concluded its side of the
Streetor ease yesterday afternoon, and
the detfuse immediately took occasion
to enter a number of motions. They
asked that the case he dismissed, on the
ground, that the indictment was insuffi
cient to form the oasis of a verdict, and
secon I, that the evidence was insuffi
cient to warrant the briiucing of a ver
dict. The defense also moved that the
state elect on which item of the bill of
particulars it would rely, as well as
whether or not it would rely on an item
on or subsequent to Dec. 22. The last
motion was that items amounting to
$1U0,587.18be taken from the jury, since
this amount by the state's evidence was
shown to have been in check, the in
dictment specifying that actual cash
was taken. It was also asked that items
amounting to §2«j,SSI.GO be also stricken
out. since a larger sum than that had
been deposited to the credit of Menage
between Dec. 24, 1692, and Jan. 20,15'J3.
Judge Shaw argued the points raised by
the motions at length, and the couru
ultimately allowed the defense to pro
ceed, reserving his decision on the mo
tions until later. The arguments were
made during the absence of the jury,
which had been excused from the room.
\Y. A. Lancaster opened tho case of
the defense by saying that although the
state had tried to create an Impression
that it was necessary to convict Street
er for the welfare of the state, then?
was another side to the question, and
the safety of the individual and individ
ual Liberty was equally as important as
the other.
The speaker then rapidly sketched
Streeter's career and connection with
kite company, urging that Menage was
the man who had profited by tfce money
taken from the company, and that
Streeter had not Droned by a dollar.
Men did not commit larceny for fun,
and if it could oe shown that he had
not derived any profit, it was at least a
presumption in his favor that he had
not been guilty of the larceny. Mr.
Lancaster's talk was very affecting, and
both Mr. Streeter's wife and sister, who
were preseut, were obliged to use their
A number of persons were placed on
the stand yesterday in concluding the
Streeter trial for the prosecution. Most
of the morning was consumed in the
cross-examination of S. If. Houghton,
who was asked very minutely concern
ing his signing of the riders, lie ad
mitting that he signed most of them
without looking at tiic-m.
11. E. Fletcher, who had been waiting
for about a day and a half in response
to a subp<ena from the prosecution,
was called to the stand, and was asked
a single question, to which an exception
was taken, the exception sustained, and
his testimony all excluded, it was the
the testimony of Mr. Fletcher last July
which took about a day and a half of
time and occasioned so many caustic
remarks from the defense. Perctval
Robertson did not want to testify, and
appealed to the court, but was obliged
to admit that he had received $100 from
Mr. Chase during the winter of r<J2.

Got Into a Fight Yesterday With
His Partner.
"Billy" Cole, the private detective,
got into trouble with his partner. O. D.
Douglas, yesterday afternoon. The two
conduct a detective agency at 304 Beery
block, corner Second avenue and Third

away from his business, and, according
to Mr. Douglas, "double-crossing" the
agency's patrons.
Yesterday afternoon Cole returned

him as being trustworthy and capable.
But he could not stand being struck in

For a few brief moments blood spat'

Mr. Douglas, let it be understood, did
not escape without a remembrance of

Mayor Eustis yesterday came to the

It !s a weakness, a sin, a crime to
neglect your health. Death has terrors
for every one, but people do not seem to
think much about it until they are
about to break down. Then anguish
tills the soul. Then despair replaces
ambition, and weakness and exhaustion
take the place of strength.
Have you palpitation, fluttering and
feeling of weakness and uneasiness
around the heart, dizziness, faintness
and shortness of breath? Then look to
your heart! It is dangerously weak!
Sometimes there is pain around the
heart. With these symptoms there is
generally loss of appetite, gas, weak
ness, anxiety, forebodings, despondency
and extreme nervousness. Such a con
dition is equal to a deadly serpent coiled
about you, whose venomous fan^s are
about to sink into your llesh and draw
your lile's blood. Bead the remarkable

"After trying several remedies, for

convinced that Dr. Greene's Nervura
blood and nerve remedy was the only
medicine that would cure me. I saw
that many had been cured of the same
complaint by it. 1 commenced using it,
and the result justifies my confidence.
"My troubles have all left me a'f^er

Failing to Ruin the Democratic
Party, Will Now Try the Itepub
Oaky, S. D., Nov. 19.—1t would
scarcely be expected that information
revealing a great national conspiracy to
rule or ruin the Republican party should
come to the surface iv this unimportant
village. Nevertheless, the information
is so direct and the source so authentic
thatthere is no doubt of the truth of
what has leaked out. The informant
is a gentleman of veracity who ia acting
as amanuensis to one of the backers in
the movement, and has long been per
sonally known by the correspondent to
be reliable. In short, then, the story
he tells is this:
For several months an understanding
has existed among the leading silver
men of the United States that an em
phatic demand shall be made that the
Republican platform of 18(J0 shall con
tain an unequivocal declaration in favor
of unqualified free coinage of silver, and
in the event of the failure of the Re
publicans to so declare a new party
movement shall fo thwith be sprung
with a two-plank platform, aeeiaring
simply for protection and free
coinage. The management of the move
ment is largely in tiie hands ot Senators
Jones, Stewart and Pettigrew, and
they are looking to Senator Cameron, of
Pennsylvania, as their presidential can
didate iv the event of the birth of the
new party. The results of the recent
elections have given these leaders re
newed confidence, as tney now believe
they will be able to absorb the remnants
of the Populist party, and receive
through the protection plank the ad
hesion of the labor vote of tha East.
Thus they hope to centralize tiie entire
free silver strength and much of the
labor vote of the country. The in
formant is positive iv the declaration
ttiat the Republican party will be forced
either to adopt. the silver plank or be
destroyed, and that this intention to
rule or ruin is a fundamental tenet of
the movement; and it is even said that
Senator Cameron has already consented
to head t* c revolt.
Hundreds have tried, but none have
succeeded in efforts to equal Dr. Price's
Baking Powder. Without a rival for
forty years.
Plot to Rob a Pennsylvania Pay
Car Frustrated.
Cumueri.axd, Md.. Nov. 19.—A plot
to rob a pay car near this city Saturday
afternoon was discovered in time to
prevent the crime. It appears that it
was the intention of several strangers
and a man living in this city to remove
a rail on the Eckhard branch of the C.
&P. railway, ditch the train and rob
the pay car of about $2. r),0!!0 which was
to be used in paying oft the miners.

was iv readiness when one of the men
weakened and told Supt. Hamilton.
Sheriff King and detectives, armed with
Winchesters, boarded the special train
which leaves the city about 10 o'clock,
carrying the pay car, and rode to £ck
hart without accident. It is thought
the rest of the gang learned of the ex
posure of the scheme and made good
their escape. The matter lias been
kept qu;et by the railroad officials with
the hope of capturing the would-be

Denmark Prohibits Imports of

issued a decree. to take effect immedi

cattle and tresh meat from the United
Washington, Nov. 19.—Count Re
ventlow, the Danish minister, first
heard of the action of Denmark in ex
cluding American beef and meats
through the Associated Press cable
from Copenhagen. The count ex
pressed sururise, as no action in that
line had heretofore been contemplated.
He said the action was probably due to
a request from Germany, as beet re
ceived at Danish ports frequently
finds its way into Germany and thus
overcomes the German restriction.
Count Reventlow says Denmark uses
very littie American beef or meat prod
uct, lie iiad never heard that any of
the American product in Denmark was
affected with typhus fever. Uuder
these circumstances ho feels that tne
action of Denmark is not so much
aimed against the United States as it is
to make Denmark's neighbor, Germany,
effective in her exclusion. The ex
minister has as yet not received any
official advices on the subject.

The Turn's adds that it will be a serious
matter, however, if their forecast proves
wrong, for the banks will then have
parted with iheir metallic reserve with

useless to trust in a possible improve
