Ready to be Turned Over To
morrow by the Contractor.
The finishing touches on the new engine-house,
calaboose and police court,
were being put on by conductor Hur
ley Saturday evening, and he will be
ready to turn over the building, as
iar as his contract goes, to the build
ing committee of the city council to
morrow morning. The fitting up of
the stalls for the horses, putting in
the eight iron cages in the calaboose,
furnishing the court room and set
tling into shape the thousand and one
things necessary to the interior of the
structure, are not included in Hur
ley's contract. They will be attend
ed to, in proper style and due time,
by the building committee. As the
structure now stands it is as complete
and commodious, and likewise con
venient, as any fire engine house in
the western country.
The apartment at the north
side of the main room down stairs,
opening out on Kentucky, street will
be the home of the engine and hose
reel and the necessary horses. At
either side of the machine and the
reel is a handsome stall for a horse,
and swinging above, ready to be put
on the animal with two snaps in a
moment of time, is the necessary har
ness. The south side of the room will
be fitted up in the future for a hook
and ladder outfit, complete, horses,
harness and all.
In the second story, above the fire
equipment, is the sleeping room of
the firemen, which will be fitted up
comfortably and conveniently for the
boys. In the corner of the room,
southwest and northwest, will be
sliding poles for the members of the
company to hasten their movements
when an alarm of fire is sounded, the
old-fashioned way cf getting down
stairs proving too slow.
In tne rear of the sleeping quarters
is a large room intended for the stor
age of feed, and so forth, and part of
it will be utilized for a workshop.
The police court is immediately
above the calaboose, beiug reached
by a flight of steps on the outside of
the building. The court-room is dis
connected from the firemen 's quarters
by a dead brick wall.
The calaboose is in the rear of the
engine room, on the first floor, and is
a large apartment, with a concrete
floor. In the center of the room are
eight row cages for the unlucky
prisoners, who may chance to be run
in by the police. In one corner of
the room is a pump, which brings
fine water from a living well, dug
before the house was built by Alder
man Rod Gallie, who owned the
property. A pump is also led into
the same well from a corner of the
room, intended for the hook and
ladder apparatus.
The building has taken about
ten weeks in its erection and is
pronounced by those who know, to be
substantial and admirably adapted in
every respect for the purposes to
which its several parts will be put.
A Jury and a Coffin.
In Justice Fisher's court, yester
day, there was a tril by jury, in
which the price of a coffin was sued
for. The plaintiffs were McLaughlin
Bros., and the defendant, J. . Ens
ley. The mother-in-law of the last
named, Mrs. Bowman, died last fall,
and a coffin, costing $65, was procur
ed ior tie remains from the undertak
ing firm indicated. The account was
not paid by Mr. Ensley, and the Mc
Laughlins brought suit for the money.
About two weeks ago a trial of the
cause was had in 'Squire Fisher's
court, and the result was a mistrial,
the jury hanging.
Yesterday the suit was brought up
again before a new jury, and several
hours were spent over it. After the
evidence had been heard and argu
ments of the attorneys, pro and con,
had been listened to, the jury retired
and shortly returned a verdict for the
plaintiffs for $65 and interest and
Slightly Delayed.
The Sedana express from St. Louis
yesterday morning was a few minutes
late, the occasion of the delay being
the breaking down of a truck on a
cat of No. 24, at Williams' crossing,
about three miles east of Sedalia. The
wrecking train was sent out and the
damage was fixed up in short order.
None of the other morning trains
were thrown out of time by the acci

terday afternoon, charged with dis
turbing the peace of Mollie and Mrs.
. Mary A. Arnelt. The last two are
white, and the other woman is col
ored. All live on West Main street.
The difficulty originated with the
children, as is sometimes not unusual,
and the testimony of the various wit
nesses was tedious and uninteresting.
At a quarter past six o'clock last
night the judge, after lecturing the
parties on having proper control of
their children, fined Mrs. Robison $1
and costs, or a total of $11.55.

years, was seriously burned. The female
attendants imprisoned on the upper floor
were rescued.

A highly sensational case of chloro
forming came to light rriday morning on
Crest street Hot springs Ark ,
was Miss Sarah Langdon, a
about 18 years old. About
X . -. M -
voice awakened Mrs Mascowitz, who pro
ceeded to Miss Langdon 's room and found
her out, and a window open. The young
lady was soon found lying on the front
porch in an unconscious state. By some
means, unknown parties had effected an
entrance to the room, chloroformed Miss
Langdon and then attempted to abduct
her. The miscreants were frightened away
by Mrs. Mascowitz's timely approach.
Miss Langdon could give no clew to the
identity of the parties. For some weeks
she had been the recipient of anonymous
notes, couched in terms most tender and
affectionate. The last note received im
plored a meeting. The case is being
ierreted eut by the authorities, and the
perpetrators will doubtless be severely
handled if apprehended. Miss Langdon is
an attractive and respected young lady,
of most excellent character.
A social sensation developed shortly
after noon Friday in Chicago, in the fact
that Leonard Swett was on the eve of mat
rimony. That tue distinguished barrister
and former law partner of Abe Lincoln
should marry at this time of life (he is 61)
was not surprising, but when F. A. Mean,
a clerk in his office, asked Clerk Salmon
for a marriage certificate and gave his
chiefs name as the party of the first part,
there was an incredulous look through the
office. However,the lady's name was duly
asked and given as Miss M. A. Decker.
She has been Mr. Swett's confidential
clerk and book-keeper for the greater pan
of seven years in which she has been in
his office She is a very good looking
lady, being an educated woman,
a member of one of the best
families of Germany, and posset sed of
such business ability that she has had
charge of the office. The wedding took
place quietly Friday evening st the resi
dence of Archbishop Feehan, who came
from a summer resort in (Quebec especially
to perform the ceremoney. The bride s
family and Mr. Swett's neice were the only
witnesses. The newly m&rried couple left
the same evening for an eastern tour. The
first Mrs. Swett died a year ago after a
sickness of thirty years. Mr. Swett is a

Last Night.

Kansas City, July Hi. Tom Kelly, who
was shot by the notorious Jefl Stevens at
the corner of Eighth and Broadway,
Thursday evening, died at the city hos
pital at 11 o'clock last night The coro
ner impaneled a jury to inquire into the
shooting, and the hearing of evidence be
gan at 2 o'clock this afternoon. At the
conclusion of the inquest Htevens will be
taken before a justice of the peace and in
formation charging him with the murder
of KeUy, filed.
A reporter was the first one to inform
Stevens this morning of Kelly's death. His
mother was standing outside his cell at
the tine. His face twitched at the news
and he was evidently about to break down,
but, quickly recovering, laughed outright
and said: "I don't care. I'd just as soon
he'd die as live. He ought to have been
killed ten years ago."
Stevens has taken very little rest since
his confinement, but continually paces the
floor of his cell with his eyes cast down
ward. He appears moody and despondent
at times but quickly brightens up and
laughs, as it were, at himself. Although
he professes to be indifferent to the out
come of the case he is evidently exceed
ingly anxious about it. His aged mother, i

Concord, X. H., July 16. The Concord
school of Philosophy is now open with
warm weather and fair a ttendance. Yes
terday morning's lecture was by Dr. W. T.
Harris, on "Aristole's Doctrine of Reason."
The speaker began by distinguishing two
modes of regarding the world the materi
alistic and the spiritualistic. The former
knows only things aud cot activities, con
ceiving the orgin of motion to be at the
begining of an infinite series of events.
The spiritualistic view, on th mntrarv.
holds all things and movements to be the
result of self-activity, or, in other words,
! that activity produces being, and not vice
versa. He showed that wherever science
begins it is given by necessity to have re
course to self-activity as the ultimate ex
planation, since even sense perception it
self is due to aggregation and composition,
which themselves can he explained only
through activity and ultimately self-activity.
Of all known beings man
alone has the power oi re
alising in himself this self-activity, and
this is his mission in history. By this
realization he comes more and more to
resemble God, in whom will and intellect
are undistinguished. This idea of God,
the speaker thought, was held up both by
Plato and Aristotle and passed into Chris
tian theology. The lecture throughout
showed a tendency to make Aristotle speak
the language of Hogel and to disregard
Aristotle's historic setting.
This was followed by an interesting dis
cussion participated in bv Dr. Bush, Mr.
Sanburn, Mr. Mead and others. Among
other questions were considered that oi
Aristotle's pronounced opposition of Plato's
doctrine of ideas, the question of the im
mortality of the soul and that of the na
ture of individuality. In regard
to the first, Dr. Harris considered
the opposition as due mainly to
personal reasons and as having little real
ground; and as to the second, he held that
Aristotle claimed immortality for the in
dividual, but did not clearly bring out the
nature of individuality or distinguish it
from personality. He defined individual
ity as the power possessed by a being of
realising the whole world in himself, but
did not state the principle of that power or
distinguish individuality as related to self
from individuality as related to another.
The evening lecture was by Mr. Thorn -as
Davidson, on "Aristotle's Poetics in Re
lation to the Drama," He began by show
ing that Aristotle's dramatic theory was
inducive, and that facts must always pre
cede the theory of facts. Without attempt
ing to follow Aristotle's order of termiol
ogy, he undertook to give the gist of his
theory. Art, he said, was an attempt to re
veal the purpose which nature, by a veil
of details and accidents, time and space
half conceals. In art three things are to
be considered : First, the subject repre
sented ; second, the means of representa
tion, and third, the manner of using
these means. Considering these
in detail, he showed that the arts
are distinguisbed mainly by the second.
There are two classes oi arts : First, the
space arts, whose principle is symmetry,
architecture, sculpture and painting, ana
second, the time arts, whose principle is
rhymth, poetry, dancing and music De
scending to poetry, he showed the ground
of its division into lyric, epic and dramatic
verse and the reason why they appear
historically in this order. The speaker
then took up Aristotle's definition of
tragedy and discussed it at great length.
It runs as follows: "Tragedy is
the representation of an earnest, complete
and extended action in language, embel
lished by various kinds of ornament, dis
tributed according to the different parts of
the work, acted and not recited, and ac
complishing through pity and fear the
purification of such emotions." In con
clusion the lecturer showed the chief differ
ence between the ancient and modern
dramas and how the latter had been af
fected by Christianity. A discussion followed.
Mrs. Logan Hurt
Carbondale, 111., July 16. A serious
accident hapiened to Mrs. John A. Logan
this afternoon. She arrived in town this
morning, stopping at the residence of Mr.
11. F. Campbell. This afternoon Mrs.
Logan, and Mrs. Campbell drove into the
country in a buggy, crossing to a small
bridge where there wss a loose plank. The
horse refused to go forward and being
urged the animal became restless. The
ladies became frightened and Mrs. Logan
tried to get out of the boggy and while
doing so the horse suddenly sprang back
ward. Mrs. Logan fell to the ground, the
fore wheel passed over her and the horse
backed up on her, his hoof striking her
head and inflicting a severe wound. The
horse then started forward and the wheels
of the buggy again passed over the pros
trate woman. By this time Mr. T. Brush,
who wss passing along the road, seeing
the dangerous condition of the women,
rushed to their assistance. Mr. Brush
conveyed the ladies back to Mrs. Camp
bell's residence. At first it was feared
that Mrs. Logan's arm was broken, but
fortunately this calamity was escaped.
Her limbs and side are badly bruised,
which, in addition to the wound on her
head, causes much anxiety. Dr. Kobarts,
who is attending, has expressed the
opinion that her condition is not dan-gerous.

Watertown, JSL Y., July 16. The presi
dential party left Forresport for the Thous
and Islands at 9:05 o'clock. Eld Thorpe,
mail carrier, brought them over from For
restport in the most magnificent covered
wagon, with yellow wheels, ever seu in
this part of the country. There were the
President and his wife and Rev. William
X. C leveland and his wife. At the depot
Railroad Commissioner John D. Kernan
and wife joined the party. The train left
Utica at about 8 o'clock, having on board
Secretary of the Treasury Fairchild and
his wife, who had come down from Cazen
ovia. The president was greatly pleased with
his treatment by the Forestport people.
Said he in conversation on the train,: "I
declare 1 am very much pleased with
those little receptions which have been
given at Forestport, Holland Patent and
Clinton. The people in the country act
very nicely. They are so quiet and polite
and there is no rudeness or jostling one an
other for position. There are just about
enough of them to make a reception pleas
ant without being in the least fatiguing. I
think the country people especially are
deserving of the very kindest treatment
by you newspaper men,"
The commttee of reception at Forest
port was composed equally of Republicans
and Democrats, the former vie ins with the
latter in an endeavor to make the Presi
dent's sojourn in the village pleasant.
From Alder Creek railroad station, where
the party took the train to Cape Vincent,
where they will embark on the steamboat
on which they will sail among the islands,
is a distance of ninety miles. The train

car. At Port Ley don it again slowed
down and the crowd cheered them. At

and the people on the depot
platform crowded forward to shake
hands. Half a dozen children pressed
forward, each of whom the president shook
by the hand At Lowville, one of the lar
gest villages in this section, about all the
inhabitants were at the depot, and a sa
lute was tired. The president stepped
down to the platform and was introduced
to such as could crowd forward in three
minutes time by Postmaster Bostick. At
