A DUIreiilng C«»e Last evening- in chambers Judge McConnell sentenced Laura Jackson, toe 16-yoar-old daughter of T. W. Jackson, a West Side oirpenter, to tbe reform school for women and girls until she arrives at the age of 21 years. This Is a distressing case. la a police examination of a house of 111 fame situated on the Point Thursday night this girl was found as an Inmate and was taken n police charge. Hor father whose influence with the child seems o have been lost' urged tbe court to send the child to the reform school and the result of a hearing in eh am- bars last evening was the sentence above stated. The girl admitted frankly her unfortunate lapse and told the court that she entered the house with a full knowledge' of the meaning of such a step. There should be some way of reaching and bringing to justice those by whose acts so young a girl could be brought to such a state. The child will probably be taken today to the reform school.

A Hebrew fruit peddlar named Dushman, was struck and instantly killed at 1:15 yesterday morning by Pan Handle passenger train No. 3 ou the Western Avenue crossing at Marlon.

Dushman who was in the employ of a Marion fruitier bad gone to Hartford City with a load of bananas to tempt the. delegates to the Congressional convention to fcuy of his wares. He was returning late at night and had evidently fallen asleep in his wagon, as a pillow was found near his body after he was struck. The horse bad stopped at the crossing with the rear end of the wagon over the track. The collision severed tbe front of the wagon from the rear end, the latter being mashed into splinters', and tbe horse went on uninjured trailing the front wheels behind it and was found yesterday morning standing at the door of its stable in Marion with the front gearing still hitched to It. Duahman was probably killed install, ly. His body was not mangled, a severe wound on the back of his head being the only sign of violence. The man was a resident of Indianapolis and his body was taken there yesterday. Western Avenue crossing where the accident occurred is noted for the many catastrophes that have occurred there la past years. Last year two accidents happened on the same spot and each cost two human lives. The crossing is situated BO that the engineer of an approaching train cannot see it until he Is almost upon It. The train crew of No. S went to Marlon yesterday on No. 20 to attend the Inquest, returning last night.

The Metropolitan Opera House at St. Paul was handsomely dressed with flowers when the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers met Thursday afternoon, and every one of the two thousand seats were filled. The exercises were very Interesting throughout, but the address of Archbishop Ireland was the feature of tbe meeting. It contained some strong talk on the labor question. Welcome addresses were delivered by Mayor Wright for that city, Attorner general Childs for the State- of Minnesota, Archbishop Ireland and others. Grand Chie: Arthur closed the session with his biennial addrees. After some genera! remarks on the prosperity of the brotkerhood Mr. Arthur referred o the depression in general business, and regretted that many of the people would fail to learn the les- on of individual economy that hould be taught by their experiences f the past. With that lesson learned le people would be less in a position o suffer from the fluctuations of trade. Dutlng the past two years the broth, rhood has paid 105 Insurance benefits to the amount of $943,200, making a total of 14,721,369 paid to widows and orphans since the brotherhood was organized in 1867.

His engiueer Al Phillips Is faring much better but it not yet able to work. The American Railway Union is making a special effort to get Pullmen men Into that organization. There has never been an organization among thorn. Vice President Wlckes, of the Pullman company is quoted as saying that "our men are at perfect liberty to join." He said he believed the em. ployes appreciate their treatment by the company and understand the present financial condition. The wages of these men before the reduction were $2.26 per day and are now $1.85. President Debs of the American Railway Union denies the statement that the Great Northern wax not Ifvlng up to the agreement with the men He said he had received a long message from Mr. Hill today regarding the cases now In doubt Any men who are found guilty of criminality during the strike wll) not be reinstated. There are but few of such cases. Mr. Debs expressed the belief that Mr. Hill would act fairly and does not anticipate any further diffl. oulty. Holt to Tent tbe Tax Law. Attorney-General Smith, acting for the State, filed suits in the circuit court of Marlon county against the largest corporation in the State doing business as express, telephone, telegraph and Bleeping car companies, to enforce the payment of taxes under the law of 1893. The suits, which are similar, allege that tbe defendants have refused to pay their taxes, as provided for by the act,, and that no taxes have been paid in any county of the State. The complaint alleges that, as the defendants are all common carriers, if their property and business were levied on by the treasurers the Interests of the public would be greatly jeopardized. The court was asked to appoint receivers for all the companies until the questions are adjusted. The complaint against the Wet tern Union Telegraph company, which will probably be made the test case, asks judgment for $75, COC; of the United States Express company $8,000 ie asked; Adams Express company, $20,000; Postal Telegraph company, $5,000; Pullman Palace Car company, $15,000; Wagner Palace Car" company, $8,COO; America^ Express company, $15,000; Central Telephone company ADDITIONAL JX>CAUI.

The total amount asked of all Is $166,000 The suits are to test the validity of the law of 1893, which requires telephone, telegraph, express and sleep, ing car companies to be assessed by the mile instead of submitting a statement of their business to the state tax commission, as they did under the old state law. Taxable property to the amount of about $2.500,000 Is involved, which is assessed at from 2* to 5 per cent.
