When Kli Perkins was here two years

The case of John Crooncharged with
assault aniT battery , was dispo > ccl of yo.s-
torday in Squire Barnott's court. The
prisoner was accused of striking another
delivery man with a whip. The prose
cution dismissed the case and the defendant -
fondant was discharged. The two boys
work foi1 rival markets and the dilli-
culty grow out of that fact.

For some time past the city marshal's
ofllce In the city jail has l > con the loaf
ing place of a gang of chronic beats
whoso principal object scorns to bo to
keep warm at the oxpt'ii > e of some ono
else , and manage to kill time from OIK ,
day to another. Since the smallpox
cases have been attracting the atten
tion of the olllcials another crowd has
been added to the unsavory gang thai
haunts the jail. This is composed of
the guards who were employed to watcl
the housm where the patients were
con lined and to enforce the quarantine
laws. The original crew was bat
enough , and the police protested fecblj
against their presence , but whan the
smallpox guards appeared there was a
decided kick that bid fair to break out
in open rebellion. "The most decided
objection , however , was made by Judge
Ayli'sworth , the police magistrate. The
judge protested several times against
allowing the guardto enter the jail ,
but as thcp were still allowed to crowd
in there he removed his court to the
supreme court room some tilno aird , and
has since that time transacted all police
court business in the city building.
The court had no colliMoa with the
guards until yesterday , when ho had oc
casion to \ isit , the police station about
noon. Warming himself before the lire
stood one of the obnoxious personages.
"Are you ono of the smallpox
guards , ; ' " demanded the magistrate.
"Yos , " was the surly reply.
" \Voll , get out of lioro immediately ,
and don't come back. "
The guard failed to move.
"Are you going ; " ' demanded the
"When I got ready , " wns the answer.
For the space of half a second the
judge glared at the iiibolout fellow , and
then icizcd him by the nape of the neck
and fired him bodily into the street.
As soon as the court convened in the
afternoon , tin order was issued that no
ono bo admitted to the eity jail except
oa business. A notice to that ollict
was immediately posted on the door of
the jail , and all loafers wore refused
admittance. The jailer rcali/.ed that
there would now be some hope of keep
ing the ollico clean , and forthwith gave
it a thorough scrubbing , and for the
lirst time in months the room presented
a habitable appearance. After a thor
ough disinfection it is probable that
the room will again be occupied as a
police coui't room.

During their labors of the past two
days the board of county supervisors
have given tlio city aldermen compris
ing the board of health some surprising
lessons in publiofinanciering. The two
bodies came together to consider the
smallpox bills incurred in the treatment
of the recent cases. The bills , as pre
sented and O. K.'d by the board , of
liealth , amounted to nearly r > ,000. As
cut down and allowed by the board of
supervisors they amount to barely two-
thirds of that sum. Several of the bills
wore thrown out altogether , among
the number being that of the city mar
shal for Mil ) .
The marshal estimated his services at
S3 per day , and appointed another
deputy to look after his business at the
city jail in order to attend the cases.
Now that his bill is rejected , the now
deputy will have to go , and if any work
is lo bo done in the matter , the marshal
says some one else may do it , for ho is
'done. "
Nearly every claim wascutdown more
: less. The board of health had al
lowed the guards $2.85 per day , and I ho
county board cut it down to' $2. The
supervisors exhibited considerable sur
prise at the freedom with which the
ildornion branded all of the claims O.
Iv. and attached their signatures. Considerable -
sidorablo has boon said heretofore re
garding the customs of the two boards ,
i'ho cijy council has been charged with
reckless extravagance , and the county
ward has boon accused of being exceed
ingly parsimonious. The result of the
experience of the past two days shows
Lho advantage of a conference between
the two. each holding the other in
check and moderating the two extremes.
An occasional conference on other mat
ters than smallpox bills might result
quite beneficially to the taxpayers.

Tn the superior court yesterday the
case of F.d Middleton , William Carua-
han and W. G. Hodges , for alleged
forgery , was on trial. Tim BKIS read
ers will remember the partieularsof the
case , which was given in those columns
about two weeks ago. Three forged
checks on the bank of Olllcer it Pusey ,
bearing the signatures of Chr's ' Straule ,
Henry Spetman and John P. Weaver ,
were passed at the stores of Motcalf
Bros , A. Goldstein and M. Millce. The
face of the checks ranged from * 22 to
$29. and wore cashed at the first and
last named places.
Goldstein win suspicious and called in
an olticer , who arrested Middleton and
Carnahan , and Hwigeswas nabbed the
following morning , when ho visited the
jail toco the others. The examina
tion proceeded very slowly , and was
concluded at dark. The court ordered
Hodges and I'ariiiihiin released , but bold
Middleton to the grand jury in the sum
of i-IOI ) , which ho failed to furnish , and
was remanded to jail.

MCo of Mr.- ; . Jay Gould.
Mrs. Gould was about fifty years old.
She spent herehildhood in Now York in
the homo of her father , Daniel O. Mil
ler who amassed a largo fortune as a
member of the Una of Leo , Dater it
Miller , produce [ and grocery deal
ers. The linn some years ago occupied
a prominent place in the commercial
circles of the city. The Miller home-
lead was at No. tt ! Hast Seventeenth
street , on tlio silo now occupied by the
C'ontury building , and it is there that
Miss ticlon D. Miller was married to
Jay Gould some twenty-six or twenty-
seven years ago. Subsequently her
father purchased a residence at No. 018
Fifth avenue , where he died about
seven years ago , and where his widow ,
Mrs. Ann Kip Miller , still lives.
Tay Gould was a partner , of
Mr. Lcupp , in the leather busi
ness at the time he married Miss
Miller , and she brought him a consid
erable fortune. IIo had also just en
tered upon his lirst railroad venture
and was president of the Washington
it Itutland railroad. The Gould family
liavo occupied their present homo for
live years , and for ton or twelve years
previous lived on the opposite side of
Fifth avenue , at the northwest corner
of Forty-seventh street. Mrs. Gould
liad six children , all of whom are liv
ing. George and his wife rcbide at No.
1 Hast Forty-seventh street , immcdi-
atoly in the roar of their par
ents' residence , and Kdward ,
Ilolon , Howard , Anna and Frank
live under the paternal roof. George1
Gould is about twonty-llvo years old ,
md Franlc , the youngest , ton or eleven.
When Mrs. Gould returned with her
husband early last September to their
country residence at Irvington from
Saratoga she timt began to show signs
of failing. The long yacht voyage from
which the family returned last spring ,
and the subsequent illnesso ! Jay Gould ,
during which time Mrs. Gould faitli-
fully attended him , had told upon her
naturally frail constitution , and she
was herself obliged to take to her bed.
In the latter part of September
Mrs. Gould had a light par-
tlytio attack which warned her
family that another of greater
boverltv might bo expected at any mo
ment. 'Her Now York physician at-
Lundeil her at Irvington several tlihoti a
week , but ho saw so slight an improve
ment in her condition that ho advised
ler removal to the city. Mrs. Gould
was accordingly brought down to her
city homo , No. TiT'J Fifth avenue , and
, ho change for the time seemed bono-
lleial. She was able to bit up in bed the
greater part of the day. The severe

there was another protuberance nbovi

mul the stomach was removed. The
lieinorrhage was not troublesome. Tlio

between the limits of active hostility
and benevolent contempt. , Ife appar
ently never changed his opinion that a
great mistake had been epminitted at
Chicago , and the predominant thought
whieh was present to him through
three years of his administration was
that it was his duty to counteract , as
far as possible , the ovih results of that
mistake. Tie felt himself alone in the
cabinet. Tie looked upon the president
and all his colleagues as his inferiors
in capacity , in zeal , ' in devotion
to liberty and general welfare. lie

disaster whieh happened to the country
happened because his advice was not

named Casey , who had a contract for
construction on the railro-td , failed to
comply with the conditions thereof and
the olilcors of the road'directed General
Williamson to prosecute on bis bond.
If lliis had been done Mr. Casey would
have boon financially ruined ; but Gen
eral Williamson , after looking over the
ground , decided that Casey's failure
was more his misfortune than Ills fault ,
and earnestly recommended , that ho bo
given an extension of time tolinish the
job. The general finally obtained per
mission to compromise Hie matter with
Casey and the latter carried out the
contract , making considerable money ,
which was afterwards Inrgmy increased (
by other profitable contracts and good
investments. i

A TriiKCll ) " of IH77.
Kearney Hub : An incident has just
tranfapircd that brings to mind an oc
currence of the summer of 1877. Those
who were residents of Kearney at that
time remember that a murder wns com
mitted Jin the room | iow occupied by
Jlubboll JJrothors , as a hardware store ,
then used by T. C. Roberts , a dealer in
general merchandise. Turner Cannon ,
ono of the clerks , slept in the store and
was shot and mortally wounded by a is supposed , who had olTocted
an entrance at tlio top of one of the
windows in the roar of the building.
The tragedy happened on tlio evening
of the 1st of August. 1H77 , and all sorts
of suspicions have since been expressed
as to who might have been the perpe
trator. A letter has been received by
a citizen of Kearnny from Alo.x
Thomas , of Terre Haute. 1ml. , that will
at least have the olfect to open another
Hold for speculation and possibly lead
ton positive and satisfactory solution of
the mystery. The concluding para
graph of the letter roads a. " follows :
There is a young man now in the in
sane asylum of Indiana , and physicians
who have known him for many
years claim that ho has not boon of
sound mind fora do/.on years or more.
In his incoherent talk 'his friends say
ho has said sonu-thing about shooting
ataman in the dark inour , cilv in
the summer of 1S77. and think that it
has been a source of trouble to him. as
the next day ho heard someone rending
