In summing op a case he said: ' v 'Now, I intend to dismiss this rase. I want to say that there are at the least calculation five thousand women in the United States who choose to go about in trousers. Well, if they want to, all right. Nothing has been said here to im peach this young woman's character, and her garb is no more the indicator of a lady's character than of a man's. Be sides she has a right to wear what she pleases.

Hallroad are Liable for These Pro. terrloiiM and Afo Approaches and far Dimarrs. The follow ing article from the Chicago Tribune, which has been made public by Judge J. W. Green, formerly of Daven- Port, now corporation counsel of Chicago, will be found of interest since the viaduct matter is now being discussed through the efforts of monooolistic influences to oppose public improvements: Judge Green, the corporation counsel, has discovered an important decision of the Connecticut supreme court sustaining his view as to the liability of railroad corporations to Dav for the construction of viaducts over their tracts, including approaches, and paying on account of damages caused by such construction to adjacent property. It is the ense of Caroline M. Burrett vs the citv of New Haven and the New Haven & Northamp ton Railroad company, reported in the 42d Connecticut. The railroad had laid ' tract's crossing a highway in the outer part of New Haven in 1H4S. In 1869 the city had so much extended, and travel over the highway had so increased that the city council ordered the railroad cor poration to bui'd a viaduct over its crossing. The railroad people refused to build. After negotiation the railroad company built the superstructure of the viaduct, the city hui'ding the approaches 1 he plaintiff sued the city and the raiN road company for dan-ages done her property on abuiiing lots by the con struction of approaches. The court held that the railroad company alone was lia ble for those damages under the broad principles of the common law. The ne cessity of the viaduct grew out of the ex istence of the railroad. The common council had no riuht to enter into a con tract with the railroad company where by it agreed to build approaches. "The duty of a railroad compa ny to restore a highway to its former usefulness was not discharged when it restored it to a proper condition at the time of its construction, but was a continuing one, ami embraced such al terations and improvements as shouid afterwards be made necessary by the growtn oi the city and the increased travel. The court further held thaftbe embankments I approaches) at the end of a nriuge (viaduct), made necessary restoring a highway to its former useful ness, are a part of the railroad structure. ana a party incidentally injured in their construction has as perfect a remedy against the company for consrauential damages as for a direct injury by it in the original construction of the road." The order of the common council iorefereoce to the structure extended only to the abutments and the viaduct proper, but the court held in this language: "The building of the bridge viaduct proper was necessary to give the public a safe and convenient passage over the defen dant's Hacks, and the filling in of the ap proaches was required in con sequence of the erection of the bridge viaduct in order to re store the street to its former usefulness, which it was the duty of the defendant to ao. - " i he fact that the duty is oy law imposed on the company is sufficient to charge it with all the conse quences oi such an execution of it as re sults in injury to others." Nothing, in the opinion of Judge Green, is so clear in its application to those rail roads which like the Northweatern road entered the city without entering into stipulated agreements to construct via ' ducts. They will have to build them and pay the damages of construction in order to restore the streets which they ciosa to pnouc usefulness. As to these roads in which express stipulation is made for the construction of viaducts it is a clear case, This refers to roads entering the city since 1873, when the express stipulations were nrsi incorporated in the law. During the municipal administration of 1872-3 Judge Tuley, who was then corporation counsel, presented this deci sion to a meeting of railroad men called by the mayor, they had been kicking against the erection of viaducts. When Judge Tuley expounded- the law to them they began to weaken . The provision of the ordinances of 1813 jn relation to via ducts was based on the principles of the decision and was intended to give them effect. All the roads are obliged to build the viaducts, approaches, etc., and pay the damages, however, without express stipulation. , Proceedings will be commenced at once against the Mi.waukee & St. Paul road to compel it to pay ihe cost, including damages, of the northern approach of mo anuiana avenue viaduct New dates and figs at Krell & Math's.

TEX DAYS MORE OF LUK AND THEN A PROSPECT FOR ADJOURN MENT OF CONGRESS. Suicide. By Gontrac 1 The Boat Rights Itself Only to be AgAln Overturned Further Down The Daring Voyareur Finally Thrown Out and Com pelled to Swim for His Life, at the Same Time Performing Unprecedented FeatThe Girl Who "Flunked." Niagara Falls, N. Y., 8ept 17. -After many trials C. A. Pervy made his second trip through the whirlpool rapids yesterday afternoon. At 2:25 o'clock bis boat was taken down to the old Maid of tbe Mist land ing and launched. At 4:15 everything was in readiness and Percy, dressed in a rowing suit, stepped in and rowed toward tbe center of the river. At 4:30 he fastened the oars to the boat, stood up and waved a good-bye to tbe crowds of on lookers. At 4:23 be stepped into tbe air-chamber and at 4:26 pas! under the bridga At almost tbe first tosB the boat went out of sight ftnd rose bot tom up. It seemed an age before it righted itself, but did so just as the crowd became very anxious. The trip was very similar to the one Percy made on Aug. 2K, 1SS7. He arrived at tbe whirlpool at 4 where he left his air-chamber and rowed across to the Canadian shore. He remained in tbe whirlpool until 5:30, when he was towed a cross the lower reef and started on bis trip to Lewiston. The rapids below the whirlpool are equally dangerous, if not more bo. than those above. Just as he was passing Foster flats, about a mile below the pool, a huge breaker dashed in the door of his air-chamber, filling it with water. He was at once compelled to take the center of tue boat, but before be could properly secure himself he was thrown out into the rapids. He managed to ca ch tbe boat, to which he clung for half a mile, when he was dashed away just where the rapids were most fierce. Having on a life-preserver to buoy him up, be started for Lewiston, three miles below. Two miles was through the rapids, and for nearly an hour he battled with tbe waves. When he reached stiller water several boats were on tbe lookout for bim. He was picked up just under the old Lewiston bridge by a fisherman named Gillett and brought ashore and carried into the Waggoner house nearly exhausted. Had it not been for his life- preserver he would have been drowned. lira boat bas not yet been picsed up. Percy unintentionally performed a feat never before attempted that of swimming the Devil's Hole rapids. Nellie Dil worth, of Pittsburg, who was to have accompanied Percy, backed out and thus saved bar life. The craft was built by Percy last year and made its first trip Aug. 28, 1KST. It was made of rock elm, was IT feet long, 4 feet 9 inches beam, stood 3 feet 6 inches high, and was covered with canvas. There were two air-chambers, one at each end, 6 feet G inches in length, and could accommodate four per sons. In the center was an open space 4 teet square, where tbe boat could be navigated by oars. Attached to tbe keel and running the entire length was an iron plate weighing 240 pounds. The whole structure weighs 900 pounds. Tbe boat was self-bailing ana self-righting. FAIR SLUGGERS AT WORK. Brutal Kxhtbltion In the Price Ring Two Women Kxhibit Their Skill. Bcttalo, N. Y., Sept. 17. Hattie Leslie, aged 25, weighing 16" pounds, and Alice Leary, about the same age, weighing 14 pounds, fought on Navy Island yesterday. Queensbury rules, for a $350 purse, tbe former winning the purse. The fight was to have been London prize ring rules for and the female championship of tbe world, but the money was not put up, and twenty- five sports among tbe fifty spectators of the fight made up the 250 purse, and tbe Queens- berry rules were adopted. Ine victor is the wife of John Leslie ana has been an athlete since childhood. She is a good-looking brunette, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and has been in training since July 20, when the articles were signed. Alice Leary is a black-baired Irish girl of pleasing appearance, and talks with a ladylike manner when so inclined. She says her people are well off, and would supply her with money if she would engage in a more reputable occupation. She was trained by Jack Kehoe, of Bradford, and Curly Hughes, of Buffalo. Driving kids lined with a thin coating of flannel were used. The women stripped, ap pearing in tight and wrappers. In the first round Leslie took tbe aggressive and landed her right on Leary's nose. Leary returned a good blow which raised a ridge Leslie's cheek bone. After a few short-arm blows, which landed below the face, tbey sparred until called to their corners. The rest of the ngbt was a warm one. Leary in the second round turned ber hack and let Leslie pound until time was called. During the fight she bit Leslie a stunner in tbe mouth and another between the eyes, and frequently adopted the "haek tactics. Tbe seventh round ended the fight, and Leary got severe punUhment, at the end of the round admitting her defeat by holding out ber hands to have the gloves taken off. All the Members Really Willing, bat Shy of Haying So The Blatter Possibly Id the Hands of a Single Member Beginning of the Stahlnecker Inquiry Stat utory Tautology Capitol Gleanings. Washington City, Sept 17. The business before congress is in a remarkable condition. All of the regular appropriation bills except- i ing the sundry civil and general deficiency bills have been passed by both houses, and these two are at the very finishing point and will undoubtedly be out of the way within a few days, and within tbe present week if it is desired. It n almost impossible to lore- cast the proceedings in either house, for even one day. In the absence of about half of the senators and representatives business is eon ducted by unanimous consent. A point of "no quorum" will defeat almost any meas ure, as it is with great difficulty that a quorum is procured for any purpose. An impression prevails on every hand that con gress is on the eve of adjournment, and very few men in either house will venture to predict what next will be done. It is be lieved by nearly every man in congress that tbe Democratic members of the house at their caucus on Tuesday evening will agree upon a resolution providing for adjourn ment The date fixed by Oates Thursday the 20th will not be accepted, however. If the resolution is adopted, it is believed that the day fixed upon will not be earlier than . Wednesday or Thursday of next week, the 26th or 27th. It may be, if it is agreed in caucus that an adjournment resolution shall be adopted, that it will be defeated by a point of "no quorum," and that congress will refuse to adjourn. The only men who can be found about the capital who oppose adjournment are tbe Republican members of the senate committee on finance and the Democratic members of the house committee on ways and means, who constitute the majority of each committee. These men, it Is believed by many, are not in spirit op posed to adjournment, but simply refuse to take the responsility of advocating it, and that while tbey will vote agaiust a resolution to adjourn, they will, in reality, be fclad to see it adopted. The only thing that appears to remain in the way of ad journment is the matter of responsibility. he committee mentioned are the two which umially take the initiative in adjourn ing t e first session of each congress, and they feel that to take the initiative under the present condition of the tariff and the the present status of the campaign would be to ray that they have had enough of tariff discussion and are willing to drop the sub ject.

Friday Rnhl met Fred and without uttering a - word shot him dead. Ruhl then entered tbe house and killed his sister Annie. He afterward riddled the bodies of his victims with bullets. Ruhl then returned home and reloaded bis weapon and shot himself through the heart What They Consist of and the Testimony Taken So Far. Washington City, Sept 17. The bouse committee to investigate tbe charges against Representative Stahlnecker met Saturday and heard the charges read. 1 hey are. brief, that the accused "lecged" for tbe chairmanship of the house library commit tee, the presumed object being to enable him I to work into the new building tbe stone from certain quarries, and the cement from cer tain manufactories of that product which were owned and operated by his relatives; that he tried to induce Architect Hmi.b meyer to use this stone and cement, and intimated that Smithmeyer was flying in the face of bis own interests when he refused on the ground that the material did not stand the necessary tests. Architect Smithmeyer then took the stand and said the above charges were true. Speak er Carlisle bad sent for bim (the witness) when the appoinment of committee chair man was under consideration, and said that he had heard that Stahlnecker's father was interested in certain quarries, but would dis pose of them, so Stahlnecker said. Tbe speaker had also told Smithmeyer that he would not be persecuted any more by Stahl necker. Upon cross-examination witness admitted that some of the cement above re ferred to had been used in the bnilding. The result of later tests of the cement was also shown with a view to proving that although it had previously been rejected It was of su perior quality. Ihe matter then went over till Monday. ('apt.

The presi dent Saturday commuted the sentence in the case of Emanuel Patterson, colored, who was convicted of murder in the western dis trict of Arkansas, and sentenced to be hanged on the 2th of September. Tbe president says: "Making all allowances for the character of much of the evidence for the defense, I am impressed by tbe evidence claimed by the government to be true in such a way that I am unwilling to have tbe sentence of death executed. The sentence is therefore commuted to imprisonment for life upon tbe ground that the evidence is not of that clear and satisfactory character at to all the elements which make up deliber ate murder as to justify tbe infliction of tbe punisbmcut of death. The Outcome of a Challenge In Hungary Thrae Years Ago Is Three Pistol Shots on the Lake Shore and Corpse A Young Hungarian Who Kept Hit Word and Laid Down His Life to Keep His Honoi Irreproachable, Chicago, Sept 17. Uut week a young man, formerly of Omaha, named Oers Baro thy, committed suicitL on the shores of tbe lake here by shooting himself with a pistol The newspapers worked up the case and con cluded that tbe cause of the shooting was tbe young man's hopeless love for a Mrs. Sher wood. A telegram from Omaha, however, says that among those who read of tbe young man's untimely taking off were his two brothers living in Nebraska. The tele gram then proceeds: "The brothers came to town Friday. At the postoffioe one of them received a letter with a deep, black border, dated at Chicago on the i2th. It was from Oers, and told a strange story. Young Barothy was a Hun garian. Three years ago on the 12th of this month he was mortally offended by an officer in the army at home. He chal lenged tbe soldier. The challenge was accepted, with the usual priv ilege of selecting the weapons or the means to be used of satisfying the honor of both parties. In Hungary there are three methods allowable in such events the sword, the pistol, or what is termed the "American plan." This consists in each party drawing one of two balls, a white or black. The man wbo draws the black ball is bound to dispose of himself either by shooting, banging, drowning, or any other manner which may be decided upon by the challenged party be fore the balls are drawn. Barothy drew the black, or unlucky balL It had been agreed that the drawer of the unlucky one should kill himself by shooting on the third anni versary of tbe duel. The anniversary took place last Wednesday. That night Oers walked to the shore of Lake Michigan, in Chicago, and, in remem brance of his word of honor, sent three bul lets into his body and died. For three years the fate that rested in his own bands seemed to have cast a shadow over bis life which was dispelled only when in the company of genial companions. And yet not a mortal knew of the cause of bis despondency save bis adversary and tbe seconds in the duel. "On the day of his death Oers bought a box of mourning stationery containing twelve envelopes and sheets of paper. Fri day the box was forwarded to the brother at West Point In it were only four sheeta and envelopes. The others had been used in noti fying his brothers, bis adversary, and tbe sec onds in bis duel, of the approach of his death. With those envelopes came all the photographs be had been given by his brothers and those by Henry Pundit, of this city, one of which was that of the letter's little daughter, whom Oers greatly admired. He stated that be did not fear to die, and that he did not want his brothers to doubt him, because he died In defense ot his honor and his word. One of tbe brothers said that Mrs. Sher wood bad in no manner influenced his brother's suicide, and tbe reason he had not returned ber photograph was lest the would lead to a suspicion that something was wrong, and that be might be sought and prevented from accomplishing tbe act which he thought preserved the honor of himself and family. DEMOCRATIC CLUBS INDOR8EDJ Mr. Cleveland Writes of Their Organisa tion and Cm In the Campaign. Niw York. Sept 17. Hon Chauncey . Black, president of the National Association Democratic clubs, bas received the follow ing letter from President Cleveland i . I MyDeak Bm: The papers which jot kindly sent me for my perusal touching the scope, method and purposes of tbe Associa tion of Demo-ratio clubs have strengthened my belief In the extreme importance of sack organisations as have been thus associated. Ihe struggle upon which we have entered in behalf of the people of the laud, land they must be reached. We do not oroceed upon the theory that they are to be led by others who may or may not be in sympathy with their Interests, we nave undertaken teach tbe voters as free, independent eitt- isens intelligent enough to see their rights. interested enough to insist npon being treat ed justly, and patriotic enough to desire their country's welfare. 'Thus, this cempaign is one of information and organization. Every citicen should be regarded as a thoughtful, responsible voter, and he should be furnished the means of ex am ing the issues involved In the impending canvass for himself. j ul am convinced that no agency is So ef fective to this end as tbe clubs which hare been formed, permeating all parts of the country and making their Influence fflt in every neighborhood By a systematic effort tbey make tbe objects of tbe Democratic party understood by the fair and cab dis cussion of the Democratic position in i this contest among those with whom their mem bers daily come in contact; and by prevent ing a neglect of the duty of suffrage on elec tion day, these clubs will become, in my opinion, the most important instrumentality yet devised for promoting tbe success of. our party, l ours very truly.

He then said: "By your noble utterances in behalf of the down -trodden people of Ireland, you have as sisted much in building up the strong public opinion which exists to-day in America, and which, beyond doubt, will, in the near future, solve the question of the right of the Irish people to self government; and for this you are entitled to and have our most grateful thanks." In response Gen. Harrison said : "You were Irishmen, you are A raericans cheers Irish -Americans. (Continued cheering.

If you could forget Ireland, if you could be unmoved by her minstrelsy, un touched by tbe appeals of ber plendid ora tory, unsympathi-tic with her heroes and martyrs, 1 should fear that the bowl of your new citizenship would have no power over hearts so cold and consciences so dead." Cheering. The general hoped for the success of the campaign for Irish home lute, under the leadership of Gladstone and Parnell, paid a compliment to Irish women, and comiari the women of this country to tho of other countries as relates to their con il it ion here and them He said Irishmen were particu larly appreciative of the benefit of protec tion, and had reason to be, and closed as fol lows: I believe that social order, that national prosperity, are bound up in tbe preservation of our existing policy. fLrud cheering and of ou are rishk J 1 do not belteve that a republic can live and prosper whose wage-earners ilo not receive enough to make life comfortat'le; who do not have some up ward avenues of hope open before them.
