'On Oct. .". HUM;, n squadron of the
Ninth cavalry, an organization of col

from the war department assigning
them to duty there. Soon after this
assignment there appeared in the pub

statement alleged to have been marie
with regard to the matter by Colonel

" "J he negro troops would never

"This alleged statement by Colonel

New York, Nov. 7. An almost In
credible record of crime ns an out
growth of tangled love affairs has Just
Ihsmi written down by the police of
this city. In the brief apnee. of one
week three men murderously shot down
women with whom they were In love.
Two completed their cowardice by tak
ing their own lives. lrtrlng these same
seven days there was a veritable storm
of suicide ami violence, all traceable
to the hot furv of disappointed love.
Ileie follows. In brief form, the re-
mni'Lahlc record of seven days:

Thlsblll makes appropriations of num
erous and varied amounts, for many
cities, In a great number of states.and
of courso was a popular measure. It
was called thcOmnlbus hill, and passed
both houses with votes from all over
the F nlted States. Pollard's helii was
not needed -Indeed he could not have
prevented Its passage had he tried.
And this is the truth about the build
ing site appropriation of 7,.riOO. Pol
lard did not do anything when the op
portunity presented itself or ho would
have procured an amendment, when
thlsblll was being considered In the
house, raising tho amount from $7,.r00
to 7',(X or $100,000 for both a site
and building. Pollard must think his
chances are slim when he tries to fool
the voters by representing that he has
done so much fur us-more than his
duty, and accomplished more than his
predecessors. We owe him nothing.
In the passage of bills of this nature,
politics does not figure and no doubt a
democrat would have done as much,
yes more than Pollard would, or could.
When Pollard does any thing for this
city It will be when he cannot do oth
erwise.

given In order that the guests might
become acquainted with the members
of the society, and understand the na
ture of the work that Is being accom

The excellent program provided for
the occasion was Introduced by a solo
by Mrs. J. W. Gamble, who rendered
the selection In a very charming man

Rev. J. II. Salsbury, who more than
gra tilled the anticipations of his audi

vored the gathering with a solo, that
was highly appreciated.

The evening was then spent In a
social time until a late hour, when de

the ladles of tho society. A punch
bowl in the dining room was also a fa

regret that the social time might not
be prolonged indefinitely that the par

homeward at a late hour.
This entertainment was a novel one
and proved to be very edifying, as well
