The grand jury was at work yesterday

It has been reported that when the

ing at the fire and police alarm system ,
Mayor Gronoweg tried to turn in a police
call , but could not make it work. The
critics of the Richmond made much ado
about this , but the fact seems to bo clear
that the mayor did not turn the key the
right way , and that was all the trouble.
Bradley , the electrician , came to the box ,
turned in the alarm all right and the
mayor then saw his mistake.

Cruintu From Court.
When court adjourned Tuesday even
ing Colonel Daily had just closed his
opening argument in the case of William
Morse , charged with being a partner of
Kothory in the stealing of a diamond
Irom Mrs. Durham's jewelry store. It
was expected that his attorneys , Mynstcr
& Lindt , would spend a good portion
of yesterday in orating to the jury , but to
the surprise of all they concluded to sub
mit the case without argument. This
hands of the jury. They retired with
the general prediction that they would
disagree. t
The case of T. W. Castor was called ,
but as he did not annpear his bonds of
f 00 were1 forfeited. This was an appeal
case from Noola , the defendant having
there been found guilty of assault and
battery and havinc taken an anneal.
The grand jury found no bill against

adultery. The husband of the woman
was the complaining witness and he had

witnesses and not returning the defend

up has been in the courts ono way and

When Judge Aylesworth mounted the
woolsack yesterday morning and called
for the prisoners to bu brought forth , the
first to anpcar was a distinguished look
ing , clerical sort of a young man , having
a smooth shaven face , an abundance of
curly locks , his eyes peering through a
pair of gold-bowed spectacles , and ho
leaned himself against the lire pressure
apparatus with the air of one poslnp for
a portrait. Ho gave his name as Ses
sions and told his story in : i manner
which caused much merriment at his ex.
penso. His position was unfortunate ,
lie was a comedian. The company ho
lind been with had "busted , " through no
fault of his , leaving him in a rather
rocky road. He struck to Chicago , but
found that there were about sev
enty-two others in like condition , from
other companies , who had got there
before him. Every lamp post was taken ,
and if tiiero had been a vacancy , ho could
not have ailbrded to hold it up until ho
could secure a place with a salary. Chicago
cage having a surplus of art. he pushed
towards "Omlha , " as ho called It. Ho
bought two mileage books , ono holding a
few miles , the other for several hundred.
When ho came to give them up to the
conductor ho discovered that ono was
lost. Of course it was the long term one ,
so he had to put up cash for the rest of
the journey. Ho landed hero with ono
silver quarter as his only friend. Ho
wonttotho Kiel house , registered , handed
over his grip , and thought ho would stroll
out nnd find ono of the Prcscott troupe
to effect a loan until ho could got across
the river , where ho expected $50 , which ho
had notilied one of his debtors to
send to him to that point. Ho didn't find
the fellow-actor whom he hoped to
strike , and returning to the hotel told
Ills condition and offered to leave his
grip and overcoat for security until he
sould arrange his finances more satisfac
torily. He concluded that ho could oc
cupy a chair until morning , and then
catch the troupe as they started for the
Jo pot , and get relief. While thus wrest
ling witli the problem whether life was
worth living , a policeman picked him up ,
conducted him to the station , and booked
liim for vagrancy. Ho searched him ,
and found m the watch
pocket of his pantaloons $1.80.
lie said it must have been there
n long time and been overlooked by him.
He concluded it was a good thing to bo
rounded up once in a while so as to get
the police to discover assets which ho had
Failed to lind and which ho needed badly.
lie thought his experience behind the
bars might servo to help him in the moro
naturally taking such parts on the stage ,
but still objected to the school of instruc
tion. He was lot go with the one lesson
and started out into free air , not forgot-
Ling to warn the reporters not to give
him away , as "tho boys would devil the
life out of him" if they got onto it. Hence
nothing will appear about it in the pa
Charles Meyers was arrested for lar
ceny. Ho had been at work in Dave
Gray's harness shop , and on leaving
some tools were missing. Gray found
them among Meyers' effects , and Movers
claimed that they got mixed by mistake.
On being arrested Meyers gave his name
as Haincs , and was booked accordingly.
When the judge asked him why ho gave
the wrong name ho explained that ho did
not want his wife to hear about it and
was afraid she might road it in the pa
pers. Ho expected to get the matter sat
isfactorily arranged with Gray and get
out of the trouble. "A married man , "
said the judge , "should never hide his
troubles from his wifo. She should bo
the first ono for him to go to when in
trouble , except , perhaps , when ho gets in
trouble witli another woman. " Meyers
came to some understanding with Gray ,
nnd went homo to consider the advice.
Cheaper Gas Coming.
There are several gas companies seek
ing to get charters for supplying Council
Uluffs. The time draws near for the ex
piration of the charter of the old com
pany , and this company asks for a re
newal of its charter and offers to rcduco
the price from the present high rates of
$1 a thousand , CO cents of for cash , down
to $3 cash for prlvato consumers and
11.75 for the city. The water gas com
pany is promising to put in an applica
tion with rates as low as f 1 a thousand ,
and several other companies arc figuring
on supplying the city at prices as low or
lower than the old company offers. The
ciluons are delighted at the prospect of
emancipation from the oxhorbitant rates
which have reigned for years hero. This
city has been paying more for light than
any other city in this part of the country ,
and the result has been that the city has
concluded to use electric lights , on masts ,
for the streets , and thus get moro nnd
better light , oven if there is no reduction
ih the total expense. Private consumers
are still left to cither submit to the ex
orbitant gas rates , or substitute Kerosene
or something else for gas. The outlook
is now beginning to look favorable for
gas at rates which como within the roach
of many who have been unable to use it
The competition between the several
companies seeking charters is sharp
enough to bring about a radical change.
It seems that the result must bo that gas
consumers In this city will get rates very
low as compared with the prices which
have prevailed for years hero. The people
ple are feeling good on seeing that there
is nn opening of competition. They care
little for the details ot the light , but are
looking forward with intense interest to
tno outcome , beUovmg that it will prove
favorable to the pocketbooks of all , ex
cept those who own the old plant.
The County's New Home.
The prospect Is good for the comple
tion of the new county court house by
the 1st of January. The work on the
wood finishing is progressing well. The
casements in ono room are already
rubbed down so that the grain of the
notural wood shows up finely , and gives
an idea of how the interior of the whole
building will appear. The artists are busy
on the decorations , and in this respect the
building will bo moro attractive than
was expected. The ceilings in the court
rooms have already boon seen bv many ,
and have won much praise , The walls
of ouo ot these rooms have been
also decorated , the design being
drapery , witli a border above and
a dado. In the rotunda there is some ex
cellent work being done in marble finish.
The painters are at work also upon the
colling of the tower. The tiles are being
laid on the main lloor , and the change
by which a stronger contrast is gained be
tween the white and dark squares give ?
a much moro pleasing effect than that
which was first laid in the hallway as a
sample. Outside the building the work
men are also busy. The stone stops and
flagging are being put in place , with
strong foundations of masonry. Mr.
Carter , the superintendent , Ji vigilant ,
tnd it seems that if ever a public bwld-
ng was put on honor , and without any
smell of booitlcrism , this county hus
such a one.
A dizzy bit of work was done yesterday
n the painting of the clock dials in the
ower. The workman stood on a narrow
) oard , 150 feet above the ground , and
with no railing or other protection
mlntml time on the white face , without
ipparently any thought that in making
Ime ho stood on the brink of eternity. It
s too bad that the noble temple of justice
ms to bo crowned with a lie , for such in
'act ' it is , us the mock clock tells the pco-
ilo that it Is ever fifteen minutes to
welve. A clock , a real ouo , should bo
mi Into the tower , and the hands should
) o made to toll the truth , so that the god
dess below might not bo put to shame.

A. Clouded 8Ky Prevented Observa
tions In Japnu.
Yokohama correspondence : America
sent out two expeditions to observe this
eclipse of the sun , total in parts of Rus
sia , across Siberia , and in parts of Japan.
Duo went under the charge of Prof.
Young , of Princeton , to establish them
selves near Moscow. The other came
to Japan under the load of 1'rof. Todd ,
of Amhcrst college. Neither expedition
was at government expense , although
L'rof. Todd had government sanction
and aid to the extent of the navy depart
ment lending him instruments and the
state department authorizing the United
States minister in Japan to assist the sci
entists in securing a place for the ob
servatory and to transmit their report by
the department's cable code and at its
jxpouse to Washington. The expense of
Prof. Todd and his assistant , Dr.Holland ,
wore mot by $2.000 given from the Bache
fund of the NationafAcadcmy of Sciences
and by private contributions. On their
arrival here the Japanese government
set apart the old Daimio castle at Shiri-
kawu for Prof. Todd's observatory , and
several weeks were taken to put the
great telescope , the siderostadts , the
jhoto-hcliogruph , the coronograph and
other instruments in position. After com
ing 10,000 miles to see the eclipse of
August 10 , the scientist awoke
hut morning to lind the air
heavy and stilling , the sky nil thick , solid
: louds , the thermometer up. and the
Barometer down. By noon it cleared
and the spirits ot the party rose to exul
tation , but as the eclipse began a thunder
storm began also. Black clouds and
vivid lightning afforded a spectacle in
the heavens , but not the ono desired. A
patch of blue sky here and there , a bit of
sunlight falling on the other side of the
mountain , raised their hopes , but after
brief glimpses of the half-obscured sun.
thick clouds came over and settled the
fate of the expedition.
At nearly all places in the totality
region the weather was bad , and no ob
servations were made by the numerous
observers stationed by the Japanese
Vokonama was deserted for the day ,
and if any people wore left in town they
remained indoors , so that the vacant
streets gave ono a queer fooling witheut
the greenish-yellow dusk that came on
just before 4 o'clock. A few of the street
coolies went home with their jinrickishas
because the sun was sick and its light
would make them sick if it fell upon
them. The natives as a rule wore too
well prepared for what was to como and
had their smoked glass and colored glass
ready long beforehand. A few old men
betook themselves to the temples and
prayed fervently while the changes were
passing across the face of the sun , but
Japan is too advanced and too progress
ive to have this modern eclipse terrify
its people as did the last eclipse in 188G.
Description of the Cleveland and Hill
Prize Bnhlca.
EAST Auuoiu , N. Y. , Sept. 16. The
talk of the county , and for that matter of
the middle and eastern states during the
present week , has been the baby show
held in connection with the fair here.
President Cleveland's prize triplets bid
fair to become famous. Presents , invita
tions and letters from museum managers ,
photographers , and even that bane of all
celebrated people , cranks , are pouring
in upon the quiet little household ut Fast
Hamburg. All sorts ot suggestions and
advice are in the cranks' epistles , and
Albert Dart , farmer , if his head was not
very level , would soon become Albert
Dart , triplet manager and lunatic.
The effect of President Cleveland's re
ward of merit or stimulus to an infant
industry , whichever it may bo called , has
been unlocked for. In the county where
the beautiful bride of the white house
and her husband were bred and raised ,
the president is loudly applauded for the
direction his liberality has taken. The
fact of the matter is that Mr. Cleveland ,
being importuned to help the new fair
association , put down his name for f 10 ,
and Manager Hubbard turned the act
into the channel through which it reached
nnd made world-famous Ida , Mollle and
Ray Dart , the prize trio.
Little Ida Dart , the rose between two
thorns" ranks first in the group , both by
virtue of her sex and birth. It was
shortly before noon on October 23 , 1885 ,
when Ida was ushered into the world.
The mother was under the influence of
etherand Malcom and Ray were both on
the scene of life by 4 o'clock. When Mrs.
Dart recovered from the effects of the
auiL'stuctic she inquired anxiously : "Is
ray baby born ? "
"You have three children , " answered
the physician , mid the mother fainted.
The triplets weighed 27 pounds at birth
and gained steadily. Scarcely a day of
sickness was credited to thorn , and the
mother says she never expects to have
less trouble with ono baby , should site bo
blessed again , than the "trips" have
given her.
The two boys are hardly distinguishable - ,
able apart , but Ida is not ho largo us her
brothers. Mrs. Dart told your corre
spondent that the throe played to
gether and in most respects acted in
Albert Dart , the proud sire of the fa
mous triplets , is a good-looking young
farmer of thirty years , who has to keep
busy to make both ends meet. The
couple have never exhibited the children
until urged to do so at this fair. It is
possible that the tempting offer from a
uowery museum in Now York will result
in breaking up Mr. Dart's farming plans
In East Hamburg.
Governor Hill's ' prize colored twins ,
Romeo and Juliet , are perhaps the most
interesting pair of infantsto tno bachelor
eye , that over attained fame. The gov
ernor Is a hardened bachelor , but his | 25
was freely given in encouragement of the
colored barber , of Pittsburg , and his
dusky wifo.
George Johnson is the well-to-do pro
prietor of a tonsorlul establishment in
the Smoky City. Like the Dart family ,
Mrs. Johnson's twins were her "tirsl
ollenso , " as Cadeus says in "Ermlnio ,
and no dime museum could ever tempi
Romeo and Juliet or their parents , from
the threshold of their own house. Only
through personal solicitation were the
parents induced to bring their children
to the show here , and then they wore a
dav late.
Romeo .and Juliet 'aro. quiet ,
msscsscd little people of a chocolate1
hit , and with vnry pretty dark blue eyes.
"Homy" and "July" are their pet names ,
nnd they are destined for the stage.
tlrs. Johnson ha'd histrionic ambitions
before her marriage , and intends to cdu-
ate her boy and girl In this direction.
' My husband don't ' want it , " she said
o the Globe-Dciuucrat correspondent ,
'but I'm ' sure they will make a hit just
as soon a over they appear. Colored
wins are very scarce , and when they
.ro . older they will be a beautiful couple.

"My god , Polly is in the well. Someone
ono run for help quinkl Oh ! my darling ,
my child ! " exclaimed a lady residing on
the Courtlaud avenue extension yester
day morning , as she sprang from the ver
anda towards a well in the yard.
In a second the lady wan standing be
side the well peering down the deep
round hole towards the water. The well
was deep and dark , and for a second
nothing could bo seen , but us soon us her
eyes became accustomed to the darkness
she discovered the object of her affection
jobbing up and down in the water.
"There she is , " she exclaimed. "Lot
ho bucket down quick. Quick , bo
quick. "
Then as the bucket went down , she
caned far over the well , calling out :
"There , my child , got in the bucket
and hold on tight. They will draw you
up. "
The bucket wont down and again the
ady stooped over and repeated her direc-
ion. In a second an answer came back
rom the well. It was :
"No , I Won't got m the bucket. Yon
whipped mo nnu I am going to drown. "
Almost beside herself with grief the
ady called again and again for help.
Finally , a man passing , came in and
jolng down in the well found the dead
jody , and , bringing it out , handed it to
the lady. She grabbed it eagerly , and
pressing it to her lips between her sobs ,
said :
"My child is dead. Oh. what shall I
do ? Mother did scold and slap her , but
she is sorry. In it dead ? "
For the past two or three days , Polly
md been sulky and in a bad humor. The
ady had tried hard to change its temper ,
) ut she could not. Early yesterday morn-
ng she was very cranky , and received a
a slight tan on the jaw. The lick was not
lardi but it wounded Polly's feelings.
Looking the lady in the face , she said :
"You have slapped Polly , but you
won't d it any more. She is going to
kill herself. "
In a second she was flying towards the
well. At the edge she hesitated a min
ute and then leaping over the box went
down to a watery grave.
Polly was a parrot and at the time of
ler death was the property of the grand-
laughter of the lamr who first owned her.
She was a magnificent talker and has
) een in the same family over sixty years.

George ut the Natural Bridge.
The late George Washington has been
icre. George ill. of England granted
; he tract to Thomas Jell'erson , and YV ( Isli
ngton very properly came down in con
sequence and cut his name on the rocks
under the bridge. Colonel Sam Kimberly
of Norfolk , VS. , yesterday inspected the
signature. Colonel Kimberly is a much
greater man in Norfolk , where he holds
all the county oflices , than Washington
ever was us a young man. Ho is stout
and emphatic , with eye-glasses , though
jood natured for an incredulous man.
When aroused ho stammers : "S-seonis
" ho said with
to m-rne , ,
some indignation , "that W-Washington
m-niust have sp-spcnt all his time g-goin'
round the c-country est-tabhshinghoudq-
quarters and c-cuttmg his name. I'll but
twenty d-dollars , " ho continued , "that
h-ho w-was up on the p-piazza all the
t-timo d-drinking p-pouch brandy with
ole J-Jefferson and p-paid s-somobody to
d-do that f-for him. " There is an
American cuglo clearly outlined on the
face of the arch , 200 feet in the air. "Of
course , " said the Norfolk cynic , ' 'tho
o-caglo h-had to f-follow Gcorgo. That
r-rock there will b-break out into his
p-prolilo p-prctty soon. " It is useless ,
however , to dispute the Washington
memento , though how pa did it without
a balloon is a mystery. Colonel Kim-
borly's theory , which is remote enoush to
obtain wide acceptance in scientific
circles , is that the p-presonce of the
eagle is duo to the United States mint
which grows all around.
