before the committee on credentials
could settle the numerous disputes and
report the list. In regard to the Fourth
ward the committee reported in favor of
admitting both delegations and giving
each delegate onc-lulf a Volo. This in
cluded Mr. 1'usoy , the chairman , who
thus got only half a loaf , and made him a
fractional delegate. The report was

Judge Dcomer was among the in
terested republican spectators , who oc
cupied the gallery. Ho was accompanied
by Colonel Daily , the county attorney.
They sat through to the llnlsh.
Judge Aylcjworth was the humorist of
the convention. Ho headed the contestIng -
Ing delegation from the Fourth ward.
As the vote of the ward was divided
between the two delegations , the secre
tary called for the lirst half of that ward
to announce Its vote , and then for the
second half. Judge Aylosworth got tired
of having called the "second" half and
in announcing the vote would insist on
calling it the "first" half. The fractional
sullt-np caused the tellers to test their
knowledge of mathematics.
Ira Houdrlcks , after his nomination ,
placed a stock of cigars at the exit of the
opera house , for the free indulgence of
those in the convention who enjoy the
The convention was the most quiet
and business-like ever hold by the demo
crats in this city. Thov indulged in little
outbursts of oratory , and kept right at
work to the very finish. The chairman
had smooth work , thcro being no
wrangles , no complications of motions ,
and no appeals.
Tlio Close of Court.
The federal court finished up this term
last night. The jury , in the case of
Hamilton vs. Pearcy , brought in a ver
dict for the plaintiff In the sura of $035 ,
after being out seven hours and a half.
The case was very much mixed up and
the verdict was something of a surprise.

old room , and grind out justice with the
same celerity as before.

Cured of Look-Jaw.
New York Sun : David Casai , a nine-
year-old Italian boy of 99 Rose strcetlics
at the Chambers street hospital in a con
dition of convalescence after an unusually
severe attabk of lock-jaw. Cases ot re
covery from lock-jaw are so few that
they are considered as freaks , and a
physician never holds out the slightest
hope of recovery to the friends of the
patient sull'ering from it. Young Casai ,
on September 1 , ran a piece of class into
his font , and six days later lock-jaw set
in. He had no attention until the 10th
inst. , when he was removed to the Cham
bers street hospital. Ho was then in such
a state of convulsion that every muscle
was rigid as iron. Ho could bo held out
horizontally by the ankle as easily as if
ho had been a stick of wood.
House Surgeon Donch at once admin
istered bromide to paralyze the nervous
system , with occasional hypodermic in
jections of calabar bean to knock the
stilleuing out of the spinal column. For
four consecutive days the boy took two
ounces of bromide every twenty-four
hours. An ordinary dose is ton grains ,
and thirty grains is an extreme dose for
an adult , and ono dose a day is generally
The b'oy's body limbered a little four or
five hours after treatment had begun ,
preventing for the time his death , wr.ich
must have ensued within ten hours had
his convulsions not been relieved. Ho
was then able to take a little food , the
first ho had since tlio lockjaw set in. After
four days there was a recurrence of the
convulsions and the boy's jaws became
firmly set. Life was sustained by injec
tions of food , while the treatment of
bromide and calabar bean was continued.
The lad's condition gradually improved ,
and Dr. Donch says that ho is now out of
danger and well , except for extreme
emaciation which will necessitate his de
tention at the hospital for some time.

The Domestic Problem.
Cassell's Magazine : A change in social
sentiment would produce an equal econ
omic change. It is the tendency of thn
times to degrade and not to elevate house
hold service , and to dlscourago Ameri
can girls from choosing the employment
of "servant" on account of its implied so
cial degradation. Ladies who road Carlyle -
lyle , and who lake pleasure in Horbori's
often quoted lines upon the divinity of
drudgery , have a manner of considering
their mauls the inhabitants of a different
world from their own.
While their theories are sound on the
dignity of labor , their practices places
labors in a lowly position. Housework
will bo elevated when it is regarded as a
business honorable and respected. If
the mistress would hire her servants as
her husband in trade hires his clerks ,
the relations between the manager of the
house and the laborers would.bo on the
sound basis of political economy and not
on a social or sentimental fo6tiug , As in
other fields of labor , thorough training
would bo expected , and the girl who
aspires to service would learn her pro
fession as the bookkeeper learns to keep
accounts. In order to maintain a con
tented household and to encourage the
best efforts of her servants , the mistress
would aim ta bo impartial , kind and con
siderate , as the farmer or merchant en
deavors to gam the atl'octiou and respect
of his workmen.
The business principles which regulate
the household can bo applied still higher
to the public part in the domestic ser
vice question. In tunny European coun
tries governmental supervision regulates
household service. Servants in some
places possess conduct books , without
which they cannot find situations. The
mistresses note the girl's behavior m this
book , which is countersigned by the po
lice. vVhy could not the system suggest
an American plau ol regulationV A
supervising board of domestic service ,
composed of the prominent matrons of
city or town , would bo a useful depart
ment in municipal government. Its
duties would bo the supervision of intelli
gence ollices , and the careful oversight
of the unprotected girls , as well as pre
vention of fraud against housekeepers ,
and its good results can be predicted as
ono answer io a difficult problem.

THE CHLOROFORM MYTH.
A Detective ICxploitcs the Heller In the
UHO ol'Chloroform by Burglars.
New York Mail and Express : An old
detective , in the employ of Inspector
Byrnes , was telling u Mall and Express
reporter a blood-curdling talc of mid
"Why didn't the burglar chloroform the
man the moment ho got into the room ? "
inquired the reporter. "You say he wes
there half an hour before the man woke
up and captured him. "
"Didn't I tell you that the man was
over six fuel tall and as strong as a bull ,
while the burglar was only a boy sixteen
years old ? "
"Yes , but what ot that ? "
"Did you ever see a man chloro
formed ? "
"Will you go into n doctor's ofllce
sometime and see how it is done ? Unless
a man is held down by force or submits
himself willingly to the operation , it is
impossible to chloroform him. "
"Yes ; but this man was in a sound
"What of that1 , Do you know how
long it takes to put'a man under the in
fluence of chloroform ? "
"A minute or so , J suppose. "
"Two or three minutes , rather , and the
first application of the drug is certain to
waken any living man who is not under
the influence of sonio powerful narcotic.
Before ho had taken two whiffs the
nntustliotio ho would have been wide
awake , anil the robber would have been
captured half an. hour earlier than he
"But they chloroform people some
times , don't they ? " asked the reporter.
"If you refer to doctors , I would say
yes , but if you mean burglars , I would
say no. I don't know a single instance ,
though the public and the press believe
there" are many every month. I think
I can prove ft to you. Every case
where a man is chloroformed , ac
cording to his own account of the adven
ture , ho has recovered. How often do
you hear of men dying under the in
fluence of chloroform when it ife carefully
administered by a skilled physician ?
Very often , indeed. Tlio chloroform
must be properly mixed with fresh air ,
and even then the experiment is often
fatal. Now , do vou think that an igno
rant burglar could always avoid killing
his victim ? Neither do I or any one else
who has given the subject a close study.
"No , sir. " added the detective in con-
nlusion. "I tell you chloroforming per
sons by thieves is a myth and a fraud. It
is a story originated by the victims to add
a more startling flavor to their yarns. "
