F0IICE COURT DOINGS?
Lynch. Children Will Be Taken in
Charge By Friends.
The city court this morning was tha
scene of a very sad affair, the partition
ing of a family. Joseph McGinness
and Mrs Margaret Lynch were before
the court charged witii disorderly con
duct, to which they both pleaded not
guilty. Otticer Noonan and Truant
Officer Turley, who arrested McGin
ness testified to deplorable condition
of things existing in the Lvnch home.
The husband left the wife last July,
leaving four small children dependent
upon their mother for support. At
that time McGinness boarded with
the Lynches and it appeared that he
was a frequent caller there since them.
The suspicions of the neighborhood
were aroused that all was not right
in that house and yesterday morning
Officer Noonan's attention was called
to the place, with the result as already
stated. But it was not on this evi
dence alone that the case was brought
before the court; the eldest little girl
of the family, aged 8 years, told the
whole state of affairs to the prosecutor
and he told it hi court. McGinness
was fined $10 and costs and sentenced
to thirty days in jail. Sentence was
suspended in the woman's case for
one week in order to give her time to
distribute her 'children among her
relatives, whom it appears are anxious
that they should be taken from her.
If nt the end of a week tin- order of
the court has not been carried out the
court will interfere, pass Selitenco up
on the woman and make formal order
that the children shall be taken care
of in other ways. ' When Mrs Lynch
and her boy. 4 years old. who sat with
her in the dock heard the order of the
court they bnrst into tears and the
picture they presented was strinkinglv
Daniel Lynch was found guilty of
non-support and sentenced to sixty
days in jail. lie took an appeal and
a bond of .$200 was ordered that he
should pay his wife $0 a week pending
the hearing of the appjal. Lynch l::is
been working in Torrington for some
months, yesterday he came to town
and was arrested.
James Moran was fined $10 and
costs for putting his wife and
children out of the house last
evening. These people live in Water
ville. Constable Lunny. who made the
arrest, testiiied that lie has been re
peatedly called upon by Mrs Moran to
act as neacemaker.
Cow Ate Dyniialtc,
SAUCERTIES, N. Y., Nov. 21. An
drew McGr.ire, a deputy sheriff who lives
near this place, owns a cow that is fear
ed more than if stse were a roaring lion.
McGuiie ipilks her with his heart in his
thror.t way out in a field away from his
other cows, and neighbors shun the ani
mal, running away in panic when thoy
see her briudle colored sides. But it is
not the cow herself that has caused so
great n disturbance in the neighborhood.
She is as harmless as a kitten, but at
present she is trying to digest two 10
inch dynamite cartridges, and the shadow
of an impending earthquake follows her

CIIAItLESTOWN, N. H., Nov. 21.
Charles II. Hoyt. the well known play
wright, died at his residence here at 7:15
o'clock last night of paresis, from which
he had been suffering for several months
past. Ever since his return to Charles
town, after his release from a private
asylum in Hartford by order of the court
early in August, it had been known by
his attendants and nearest friends that
his condition was serious and that there
was little or no chance for his recovery,
hut Mr. Hoyt had seemed hopeful of ulti
mate recovery. Previous to two weeks
aj;o there appeared to be a slight im
provement in his condition, although ho
had periods of depression. About two
weeks ago his appetite failed and he had
a bad turn, from which he only partially
recovered. Since that time he had been
unable to take any except liquid nourish
ment. President Angrcll' Opinion;
DETROIT. Nov. 21. President James
B. Angell of the University of Michigan,
ex-minister to China, in the course of an
address on China before the New Eng
land society of this city last night said
that he saw only three solutions to the
Chinese problem tir.-t, to depose the em
peror and place some one else in his
place, but who to replace him with Pres
ident Angell confessed his inability to
say; second, to partition China among the
powers, but Mr. Angeli said that this
would result in international strife, and
he sincerely Imped it would not happen;
third and to Mr. Angell the most feasible
solution of the problem, to keep the pres
ent emperor on the throne and depose
the empress dowager from all power. In
conclusion, Mr. Angell said he believed
the future of China rested on the suc
cessful introduction cf the Christian re
ligion into the country.

Peking have resolved . upon stronger

mate of the ore in sight, but I will have
a report ready in a few days which I
shall not withhold from the press. It is
necessary to restore eunudence. and this
can easily be done. This Indopendv'nce
matter will have a great effect on the
future disposal of European capital and
will decide whether any further Cripple
Creek enterprise is to be undertaken from
the other side of the water."

age of the Third Congregational
church a local chapter of the Daugh
ters of the Covenant was formed.
Nineteen young ladies signed the cove
nant, thus becoming active members
of the society, which promises to be
come a very nourishing one. The
object of the society is well expressed

the covenant, which each member
must sign: "I gladly enter into this
covenant of obedience that I will not
cease to make offerings of prayer,
time and money, to the end that the
daughters of sorrow in heathen lanus
may know the love of Jesus." Aside
from this work the society will work
for the benefit of the church and
local missionary work. Each mem

an aluminum copy of the covenant
for framing, also a pretty mite box,
the contents of which will be collect

society is a little sterling silver key

FIRE IN CLOTHES CLOSET.
Chemical Engine Tut the Blaze Out
Before Damage Was Done.
This morning an alarm was rung in
from box 21. corner of North Elm and
Kingsbury streets, calling the depart
ment to the residence of Anthony
Moore. Iti5 North Elm street, where
lire had broken out in a clothes closet.
The building is a large block, owned
by Blake Johnson, and occupied by
several families and with the right
kind of a start would make a confla
gration that it would be difficult to
handle. But it didn't amount to much,
though, and was got under control and
extinguished without the use of water,
the chemical engine doing the work in
line shape. Aside from the clothing
belonging to the family, which was
practically destroyed, the damage
amounted to nothing to speak of. It
attracted a big crowd and broke the
monotony of things for the time being
for the hands in the factories across
the way. some of whom live in the big
block aud came trooping around pre
pared to make a fight to save their be
longings in -ease the tire threatened to
wipe out the building.
STOLE BRASS FITTINGS.
Peculiar Booty Obtained by Thieves
at Berlin Brick Yards.
New Britain. Nov 21. A peculiar
case of theft was discovered yesterday
at the works of the Donnelly Brick Co
on the road to Berlin. The company
lias two engines, one in the brick de
partment and the other in the terra
cntta department. It was found that
thieves during the night had effected
an entrance to the engine rooms
through a window and by breaking
down a door. They then stripped the
engines of all the brass valves, cocks
and other brass parts, and the engines
cannot run until these parts are re
placed. Tower's brickyard was also visited
by the thieves. They took a quantitv
of brass there also, besides tools which
they found in th? blacksmith building.
There is no cine to the thiewes. Their
tracks were washe daway by the rain,
but -from investigations made yester
day it is thought two men took part
in the burghirv.
