Tbe interest m Iho district court yes
terday centered In the prohibition cases ,
which occupy so large a place In the cal
endar. The batch of cases brought up
yesterday were those in which a tempo
rary writ of Injunction had boon Issued ,
nnd in which the prosecution now wanted
the Injunction to bo made permanent ,
The attorneys for the defense lirst made
a moro to have thu hearing of the cases
continued , on the ground that those cases
were already being considered by the
federal court , nnd that court would
probably soon render n decision. When
these cases were brought in the district
court , the defendants made a mo
tion to have tlitim transferred to the
federal court. This motion was over
ruled by Judge Thornell. but the de
fendants went into the federal court
witn the question , asking the federal
court to take jurisdiction , while the
plaintill followed asking the federal
court to remand the cases to the statn
court , nnd denying that the federal court
had any jurisdiction. Yesterday the at
torneys for tbe defendants urged that
the cases bo Held oil' until the federal
court reached some decision. That de
cision would probably make it unneces
sary to hitve the bearing now asked for
by the plaintltl' .
Judge Ucemcr did not follow the com
mon practice of adjourning over until
the next day to consider the mutter , but
with his usual promptness decided that
ho would not allow the desired postpone
ment , lie remarked that while ho would
personally prefer to have" the federal
court decide on the question before any
further hearing was had in bis court , yet
if the plaintiff tlcmandod that the cases
b now heard , ho could not lawfully re
fuse to Brunt this. Tbo federal court
might render a decision which would
annul all these proceedings , but ho must
take the cases as he. found them and act
upon them. Jiulgu Thornell had al
ready refused to grant the desired re
moval to tbo federal court , and by this
decision the cases were left in the state
court. Ho could not practically reverse -
verse the ruling of Judge Thornoll.
The next move by the attorneys for the
defendants was to have the depositions
in these cases suppressed. It appeared
that these depositions were of the wit
nesses , Harmsdon and Smith , the two informers -
formers who went around buying drinks
tor the purpose of getting evidence
agninst tbe saloons. They have been > in-
dieted for perjury. The defendants
claimed that the depositions of these men
were not fairly taken. Tbe attorneys
wore misled as to the time of taking the
depositions , nnd hence had no opportu
nity to lilo cross-interrogatories. The
depositions , too , were taken by Attorney
/ink , of Le Mars , who had been
associated in the prosecution ol
these cases , and is the attorney
of record in a largo number of them. It
suctus from ullidavits tiled that Attorney
Kink , who has been as zealous in the
prosecution of the saloons as Mr. Sims ,
prepared these depositions himself , had
the witnesses sign them and conducted
the examination in a secret manner. Ihc
attorneys for the defendants bad nc
chance < to make any cross-examination ,
and in view of the character of tiio wit
nesses , and the natural prejudices of the
attorney taking the depositions , it was
especially necessary that every precau
tion should bo taken. The attorneys
claimed tint it was a lop-sided examina
tion , in which the defendants had no
chance to protect their interests. The
notary who took the depositions was the
attorney for the plaintiff in forty similar
cases , the examination was conducted in
secrecy , the defendants bad no chance
to cross-examine these man , who were
already under indictment for perjury ,
and ought to be subjected to cross-inter
Judge Ueeraor very promptly decided
that these depositions could not stand as
they were. He was satisfied that by some
misunderstanding , at least , the attorneys
for the defense had not hat ) the opportu
nity which they should to file cross-inter
rogatories. They ought to have this op
portunity , and ho would give it to them ,
Tbo question then arose whether the
depositions should bo sent back , and
cross-examination had , or whether the
whole work should bo done over again
by tbo prosecution. Tbo attorneys foi
the defense objected to having
to go before Zink , as bo was an
attorney for the plaintiff , and
they objected also to having
the examination m chief taken byink
and the cross examination taken by an
other notary. The depositions to tticii
mind were badly taintedand they wonted
them suppressed entirely , and a new starl
taken. Judge Dcemor told them that lu
would give them time to make a furthei
showing in regard to Zink , and the man
ner in which the depositions had beer
tixnen , so as to determine what furtuci
should bo done in tin ; matter.
The decision necessitates a further de
lay in these cases. It will be some day :
at least before the depositions can have
their faults corrected , and it is not uu
likely that in trying to patch them uj
now questions may arise , by wind
further delay can bo gained. The utter
noys for the saloon felt that m yester
day's round they knocked the prohibi
tionists"out for once , oven with a judgi
whoso personal learnings are thougjit tc
bo strongly on the prohibition side
Judgu Decinor is evidently trying to do
eide these various questions , without ro
card to tbo public feeling , or his persona
inclinations. His rulings yesterday in
spired conlidence in bis integrity of pur
pose , nnd hardly less so in his ability.
The decision suppressing the deposi
tiqns affected directly six cases , in whicl
it is soucht to have the injunctions madi
permanent. In a number of cases then
was a default , and the judgment was en
tcred against the defendants. Most , i
not all , of these arc men who have goni
out of tbo saloon business , or removed ti
other fields , so that tbo judgment doe
not practically affect them.
A number of other like cases are to b
taken up this morning. Motions may b
expected to bo made m these , and tin
light is being dragged along as slowly a
possible , each day seeming to sonic o
the defendants a great gam.

The city is lo nave its streets lighted b ;
electricity. The council last night cam
to a formal vote , and tbo report of th
committee of the whole , as published ii
yesterday's BEE , was adopted as tin
electric li ht company roado the concession
sion nsked for by the council in regard t
the purchase of the masts at the end o
two years , and hence the matter ia do
cided. By this arrangement the city is t
have seven masts , or towers , each havio
four electric lights. The tower ot th
court bouse is a sample , and will be on
of tbe points of lighting. Tbe HgUta nr
nil to bo at least 150 fcot high. Tbo city
is to pay $20 u light or (5GO a month iu
all. The Contract is for two years and at
the end of that tirao the city will either
uurchasc the masts tit two-thirds their
original cost , or enter Into a new
contract. This gives the city n
chance to cct new bids at the end of two
years , nnd should some now company
underbid the present ono , tbo city can
easily arrange to turn over the masts
to the new company.
The citizens generally are delighted at
the prospect of having the city illumined
as it will bo by these towers. The peti
tion in its favor was a strong one , and
the council in taking this action is simply
carrying out the wish of tax-payers as
thus expressed.

Denver Republican : In a dingy little
back room on the ground lloor of No ,
1511 Holladay street yesterday , a mar
crazed with the too constant imbibing ol
liquor , and suffering with the horrors
produced by strong drink , attempted tc
take his life.
The demented man was Samuel M ,
Todd , a bent old man in his seventy-
sixth year , whoso business has been tin
Denver agent of the Louisiana State Lot
tery. The idea of self-destruction wa
evidently suddcnlv conceived and at
qujekly attempted. The little lottery
ollico had not done a good business
lately ; regular frequenters of the shop
fought shy of it. This loss of patronage
played upon the spirit of the aged man
who conducted the establishment , and
ho became despondent. Despondency
drove him to drink : and liquor was the
devil that possessed his brain when be
resolved upon suicide. Ho chose D
means which , under ordinary circunv
stances , would have made his' exit from
this wicked sphere a success in every par
ticular. It was the execution , however ,
which fulled dismally.
Among other curiosities in the old rat
trap lottery ollice was a cap-und-bal
pistol ot largo calibre. It was an ancienl
firearm in common use many years ago
Armed with this , old man Todd sough )
to kill nimself. Placing the muzzle ovei
his heart , he closed his eyes and blazer
away. A loud report and a sound o :
falling plaster cominced the would-b (
suicide that his aim had been faulty , as
thcj bullet had sped over his shoulder"ant
imbedded itself in tun wall. Yet the
man was bravo and made another on-
slaucht on his existence. Again ho was
unsuccessful , the bullet imbedding itsell
in another portion of the room.
The shooting attracted attention , and
quickly the room was tilled with people
They took in the situation at a glance
and without hesitation disarmed Kim. /
hasty examination revealed the fact thu
Todd had escaped injury , but that lu
was much excited mentally. In short
the man was on the verge of deliriun
tremens. AVhilo thus suffering he was
taken to police headquarters and latoi
moved to St. Luke's hospital. At a late
hour last night ho was reported as rest
ing easy. A brief rest , attended will
careful nursing , will doubtless soon re
store the old lottery man to his ordinary
Twenty years ago in Now Orleans the
name of Samuel W. Todd was a promi
nent one. Ho was wealthy , inllueutia
and respected. Prior to the war he op
crated an extensive cotton plantation n
a rich low laud contiguous to the Mississ
ippi. Slaves in abundance hud be whosi
labor enriched him ; ho was prosporou :
and amassed a fortune. With the wa :
came reverses and at the conclusion o
the great struggle Mr. Todd made Nov
Orleans his homo. He was still linan
daily well fixed and still was favorably
received in aristocratic circles. Hi
reared a largo family luxuriously , edu
eating his daughters in Paris. His son !
engaged in business , nnd two of then
to-aay are wealthy. But the old mai
had ono vice , an ins.itiato desin
for liquor. It clung to him tenaciously
and to it is attributed tbo loss o
homo , happiness , and all that makes lift
most desirable. His passion mustcret
him so completely that the once wealthy
slave-owner laft his relativoj and , oiglf
years ago. attended only by a son , wlu
had inherited his fathers ruling passion

recr since then has been checkered
Careworn , desolate , unhappy , a wan

sank lower in the social scale.
As an agent for the Louisiana Stati
lottery ho made sufficient money to pro
vide for his natural desires and to bu ;
whisky. It is alleged that for nearly twi
years ho has been more or less continu
ally under the iuilucnco of liquor.
Yet to-day in Now Orleans. St. Loui
and Kansas City children of this old mai
live in affluence and move in the highes
circles of society. Annoyed by thei
father's disgraceful habits , 'it is said tha
they have refused to longer recognizi
