COMING COASTING CARNIVAL. Showing Up Queer Money Imbor 3lcctliiK To-nlKlit Accident , to Kay- elto Smith New Suits Ajrnlust. Cooke & Morgan. Multiplying Cases. The present legislature should take some steps to prevent , If possible , the opportunity which now exists for justices of ttiu peace to inaku such heavy and needles ? charges against thu public. When a justice with not business enough , apparently , to keep him busy two hours u day can so pile up his fees to amount to $ ( ! 00 or $700 in tlircn or four months , it scums that a halt should bo called. Tim Hir. : has shown up some of these bills in detail , and they Irivo been astonishing to taxpayers. Itis'.iwell known fact that where justices arc so inclined , several cases can easily grow out of what should in all fairness bo but one. An instance of this occurred in this city some time ago which illustrates it well. A man and his wife had some little trouble ono Sunday - day , but no blood was shed and nothing serious resulted. Tlio wife , in her augur , was bent on revenge for her real or fancied grievances She went , before a justice , and perhaps with the help of some attorney whom slio engaged , sought to make all Urn trouble she could for her husband , ami as a result he was arrested for disturbing the pence ; also on the charge of assault ; also for making threats , and when every othei possible charge was filed against him ho was charged with violating the Sunday law because the row was on that ( lay. The anger of the woman soon subsided and the ca es were dismissed. The public is called on to pay for liuitvv costs in each of those oases. Tins justices , whoso bills are thus footed up into Midi largo amounts , defend them selves by claiming that when anybody liles an information they can not help themselves , but have to issue the war rants , or that the informations were drawn up ny some attorney , who had boon engaged to prosecute tlio parties. If t lie attorney is asKcil about it no simply defends him > elf by declaring that he re ceived a fee for prosecuting the eases , and did his client's bidding , and that his client would not bo salisliud with anything less than the tiling of as many informations as possible. If the client is asked ho will jay it oil'on the attorney , or onto the justice , or get out of it by saying ho was mad when he did it. However this may be , the result is tlio same , the public purse is drawn on for immense amounts for ca cs which amount to nothing. Yesterday a big bundle of papers came to Judge Aylosworth , being a change of venue from .Justice Frainey's court. There were three informations against Ed Wright , Charles Hicks , ami liar- tor. One of them charged thcso boys with making threats to injure a man named W. T. Smith ; another charged the boys with disturbing the peace ; a third charged them with ' 'the cnmo of an unlawful , " whatever that may be , it seeming that it did not make much dif ference so long as iir.oths'r eass .vns .started. It is sllpp6sed that it was meant to charge the boys with an unlawful assembling of themselves together , or something of that sort. It has boon scarcely a week since a similar grist of cases were started be tween parties of the same name , and a big pile of oosu , taxed up to the county. Tlio most there seemed to be of the whole matter was that the parents of ono boy thought their darling had been abused by some other boys , and taking a hand in trying to correct the boys the latter wouldn't be corrected , and began throw ing clods of dirt. The man then chased them , and struck ono of them or pushed him over. A neighborhood war thus opened , bad feeling has been kept up , nnd the prediction is made that this is but a rcupfffll or the c'I ! ' troubles with about as littTo at the bottom of it. So long as justices and constables can make big fees , and lawyers can earn a few uollars monkeying with such cases , the taxpayers will have to see a good portion of their taxes squandered on this foolish ness. ness.City Attorney Holmes , who is attending to the duties of County Attorney Kcatloy during the hitter's absence at DCS Moiiics , has had some experience in that line. He was not long ago called on to defend a fellow who had been in some little row. When ho came into the justice's court ho found four distinct cases against him ; ono for assault , ono for assault and battery , one for assault to do great bodily injury , and ono for assault with intent to murder. The de fendant was called on to pay for an attorney to defend himself in each ono of these cases , for ono was liable to bo tried after the other , umltlms ho could bo put to expense and loss of time while the justice kept charging up fees. .Per haps this and similar experiences have been weighing on Mr. Holmes' mind , for when his attention was called yester day to the above cases , growing out of a row with the boys , and no learned that a private attorney had been secured to pros- cento the cases , ho had the court decide not logo ahead with the cases only on condition that the prosecution should pay all the costs. There is evidently a big chance for re form , especially in the justice shops in cities. The public- generally has but little cluinco to know the details of how fool ishly cases are entertained and fees charged up against the county. The county board claims that they can do but little in cutting down the bills , as the fees are tixcd by statute. If that is so , then the statutes should be hammered at until a fair compensation only is allowed , and that for good , square work. Host coal and wood in the city at Glea- son's , SG Pearl street.

Tribune : "Loaded" cigars , as in struments of mirth-provoking torture , arc liable to come into more general use among practical jokers on account of a iiow method of manufacture which les sens tlio danger of the explosions. A small cartridge of powder inserted in thu middle of a cigar was able to furnish a large amount of hilarity , but it was liable to damage the eyesight of the unsuspect ing smoker who had been ( selected as a victim by tlio jokers. .Serious accidents , followed by suits for damages , made tlio old style "loaded" cigar unpopular. When a man who had been known to in dulge in fun at the expense of his friends offered a cigar as llm liuest brand to an acquaintance , lie was obliged to answer Mich questions as "Will it go oil' ? " or "Which way shall 1 point it ? " A man with a reputation as a joker could keep a box of cigars open in Ins oHiee with wife ly. His friends would bo sure to think Unit articles left exposed in such a tempt ing way were dangerous to fool with. Kecentiy some manufacturer has adopted a method of "loading" cigars of a , certain brand with a chemical cartridge which lakes tire soon after the weed is lighted. There is no .sudden explosion which shatters the wrappers anil sends fragments of burning tobacco in all directions , but from the end of the cigar a .stream of lire shoots out to a distance of about three feet in a direct line. It inakcs a man look for a few seconds as if ho was a gas tank and held a piece of broken gas pipe in his mouth. The man is in no danger so long as he keeps .still and lets the cigar sputter away. To hold tlio weed lirinly in tlio teeth ot such a moment is a better test of a man's nerve Hum to hang on the end of a burning Hoi 2 > ; candle. Tlio chief danger to bo feared is that some man may urop a ci gar and start a conflagration if he at tempts to smoke indoors. In one department of the city govern ment the clerks have found much amuse ment lately in dealing out cigars of the new brand and waiting for the displays of pyrotechnics. They suddenly aband oned that form of diversion a few days ago on account of an unexpected acci dent. One of the clerks had presented acigar _ loan oflicial , but it Had been con signed to the ollicial's pocket until a more convenient time for smoking. That time came when tiie ollicial got on thu front platform of a street car and bor- roweif a "light" from a stout German. Two heads were close together and the official was sucking the lire from the end of the German's half burned weed , when there was a fizz like that which attends the flight of a Bky rock t. A stream ot fire played directly into the Gorman's face , scorching his cheek and obliterating ono largo red side-whisker in an instant. The German jumped off the car with a howl of anguish. He was followed by the astonished official , who began to make an apology. "You make ono pig joke , " screamed the German , "but I liaf you arrested.1' Tlio official was obliged to show his shield and give the name of the clerk who had furnished the obnoxious cigar before Hie German would believe his ex planation. A day or two later the clerk received iv letter from the German's lawyer stating tliat a suit for damages had been authorized. Fearing that liis position in the department would bit forfeited if tlio facts came to the notice of a commissioner , the clerk made haste to settle. The sum of money which was needed a.s a salve to the Geivnan's outraged feelings made a big lioln in the clerk's monthly pay. Warned b , } ' his experienei ) , the other clerks have MIICO been experimenting with cigars "loaded" with teeth only extracted from rubber combs. The fames of burning rubber mixed witli tobacco smoke have turned the stomach of several casehardened ened Miiokor.s. THE I.OAUM ) C1OAU IN COU11T. St. Louis Globe-Democrat : Tlio loaded cigar had its day in court yesterday , and much to the disgiibt of everybody came out victorious. The circumstance * under which it got into court are that , about two months ago , a young man named Nolle , who clerks for his father , John Nolto , proprietor of a wholesale and re tail cigar establishment at U10 Vine street , kohl John IIuscli , a barber , who worked in a shop near by. two cigars. When Mr. Ilusch hail concluded his day's work and partaken of his tmppcr , ho lit ono of his cigars and was proceeding to read a newspaper and enjoy a smoke. His wife came up and took a scat on Ids knee. She had scarcely taken lier scat when a Ijanio about a foot long thot out ot thu cigar accompanied by an oxplo- sion. The wife tumbled over in fright , ami two days afterwards a miscarriage followed. Shu nnd her husband then brought suit against the senior Nolle for $3,000. Young Nolfo testified yesterday that ho solil Mr. Ilusch two cigars lor nv'o cents , onu of which was loaded ; that a loaded cigar could always bo detected Irom the ( act that there was a hard nub- stance in it about an inch from the end- Ho was intimately acquainted with Mr. Ilusch , and gave him tlio cigar as a joke. His father had instructed him not to soil Mioli cigars without imparting their char acter. Other evidence followed , and when plaintiff had concluded Ids side of tlm ease the defondont asked for an in struction to thu effect that under thu evi dence the plaintiff was not entitled to re- cover. The court gave the instruction , and a non-suit followed. It was after wards ascertained that the court acted ujion the theory that the acts of young Nolto. under tlio circumstances above stated , could not bind the cider Nolto. A SUBMARINE GREAT GUN. What Cupt. Id-lesson lias Constructed I'pr the llrltlah ( .overniuont. London News : The special wonder at the royal arsenal at Woodwieh is just now a monster weapon intended to tire Jirojcetiles or torpedoes under water. It i&'tlio invention of Cant. Ericsson , the well known scientitio American , and it was made in the United Statesj partly uu- dor the supervision of Lieut. Gladstone of her Majesty's naty , ftvlio was sent over" for the gun and has now brought it to England. It reached the arsenal only this week and now lies at tlio inspection branch of the royal gun factories , whence , after some pre liminary tests , it will be sent on board ship , probably at Portsmouth , for trial at soa. Tin1 cannon and the projectile arc almost of equal length , , and , a.s they lie side by side , painted a bright red. are formidable objects to Iqok at. No fewer than forty tons of steel arc used in the construction of the gun , which id thirty feet long , nnd lias a here of eighteen and one-eighth inches. It is a breechloader , and closed at the stern by an arrange * mi-lit of a very simple and HlVetual char acter much resembling that of tlio great guns which were displayed at the in vention exhibition. The vent , which is axial , is sealed , and said to bo effectual in preventing the escape of powder gases. Tlie projectile measures twenty- live feet , which is onlp live feet less Ihan tuo gnuand is gaged to pass freely aloiig the bore , which is unrsllcd. It is hollow , and notwithstanding its great length weighs only tuiolon. The proposal \ to lit the gun in tlio bow of a ship nine feet under the water lint1 , so a.s to lire straight ahead from the cut water. A diaphragm of India rubber is ll.xutl over the mu//.lo to exclude tlio water , but it is blown away at the lii-fl ) > uu" of tlio discharge. The projectile is inserted from the roar and is stopped by a pin a few inches short of the diaphragm , for it ha a short rod projecting from its noM ) , which is to net by percussion on the charge within , and mu t be protected from all risks ot premature explosion. Us safety at this stage is , however , to some extent guaranteed by the action of a strong spring which prevents tlio rod from being driven back by any force short of a thonsanil pounds. A charge of t'venty pounds of powder is all thai is thought necessary for propulsion , and , this bi'iugr behind tlio projectile , tlio breech is oloM-d and the gun is ready for liritig. The only other requisite is something to aim at ; and when a hostile ship can be got. within convenient distance , the monster gun lets lly. It is asserted that a range of ! ! 00 yards under water may bo relied upon , but is considered doubtful whether ( lie shot can overcome the resjstnncc of tlio water and retain effective striking power for half the distance. The inventor , how ever , lias tried his device , and he says ho ought to know. To preserve the lateral position and uniform depth of'his sub marine missile he lias weighted it to the gravity of water , and while lie keeps ono side under by the preponderance of weight , ho has n steering plate on the upper side which opens only after leaving tlio mouth of the gun , and acts as a rudder in keeping the projectile in it.s course. Until the gun is tried the authorities are loath to express an opinion upon it , but it is regarded at least as an honest attempt to establish a new principle in gunnery , in winch it is quite unlike the wonderful breechloaders which were obtained from America dur ing tlio Crimean war , which were con tracted for at so muchper pound , and sent in with such a liiass of metal piled upon them that they were too heavy to be moved or to work , and have never been lircd to this day.
