The case of Joseph L. Luckey against Euuice B. Lamberton, D. S. Barber, W. H. Farragher and the Sunday Herald Printing company, came up in the Special term yesterday, Hon. William Rumsey presiding. The argument was on a motion on the part of Mr. Luckey for the appointment of a receiver for the company. Mr. Luckey was represented by Hon. Walter S. Hubbell and the defendants and defendant corporation by Hon. John Van Voorhis. The motion was based upon an afl&davit by Joseph L. Luckey, the substance of which has already appeared in this journal. Mr. Hubbell claimed in behalf of his client that the corporation was solvent, and that if its aif airs were closed up it could pay its indebtedness to Mrs. Lamberton, and pay nearly the par value of the stock. Mr. Van Voorhis, for the defendants, read affidavits of A. B. Lamberton, D. S. Barber and W. H. Far ragher. In the affidavit of Mr. Lamberton it is alleged, among other things, that in November, 1883, Mrs. Lamberton advanced the firm $3, 000 to establish a job office ; mat money was advanced from time to time between that time and February 1884, and when the corporation was organized, the firm was indebted to her for that money, Viz : $3, 000, and interest from the several amounts were advanced, the entire turn drawing interest from a date as early as sometime in February, 1881;" and that, with the $1, 000 loaued Luckey in 1880, which has not been paid, made the amount of the indebtedness to Eunice B. Lamberton $4, 000, besides interest. The affidavit al leges that other sums were advanced. making the indebtedness at the time the corporation was or ganized, $4,474.53. The affidavit con tinues, I further state, that the stock as such, has no values. When the company was formed the capital stock was fixed at the nominal sum of $9, 000, but nothing was paid in upon it. ' '"All th money that is in the concern has been put in by myself and wife as herein stated. ' After detailing the action of the trustees In giving a bill of sale to secure the indebtedness to Mrs. Lamber ton the affidavit continues : ' On Saturday morning at 9 o'clock, the 28th of November ast, under a power of attorney sxecuted to to me by Euuice B. Lamberton, 1 took formal possession of all the property described in the bill of sale. ' ' 1 further state that the defendaut, Eunice B. Lamberton, is perfectly responsible for the property In her hands, and is able to give any amouut of security which the court may require, that sha wdl properly account for the same. " "I further state that the appointment of a receiver would be very detrimental to the value of the property, and would result in a suspension of the publication of the paper and this the plaintiif well knew when he commenced this action, and hia proceed ings are in harmony with hi3 threat to wreck the concern. ' ' The affidavit alleges that the plaintiff Luckey has had his livinz out of the paper, at the rate of about $1, 650 per year, for the past two years or more, but has never Invested a doliar in the business. The affidavit of D. S. Barber savs : ' I further say that 1 do not consider the stock of the company ma of any value, and it never will be, unless a much greater degree of prosperity shall be reached, than under the management of the plaintiff. We do not intend to disband the company, and Mrs. Lamberton is wUKng to give us time to pay off her debt and give us a chance to make it out of the business if we can. If we shall succeed in that, the plaintiff's stock will be of some value ; if we fail, it probably will not be worth any more than it is now. We have employed a new editor, and intend making a new start under new auspices IV e intend to elevate the moral tone of the paper, and make it much more Interesting as a newspaper, and make it more influential and valuable in every way. Under the editorship of the plaintiff, objections to the paper existed in the minds of certain por tions or the community, which we expect to obviate. The appointment of a receiver would destroy all prospect of bettering the condition of the paper or the company. ' ' The affidavit of William IL Farragher In full, is as follows : 4 1, William II . Farragher, being sworn. say : That I have been treasurer and business manager of the Sunday Uerald PrinUng company since June last. I further state that I became connected with the Sunday Herald in the fall of 1881. and have been familiar with its business ever since. When the company was formed in January last, I was elected secretary and kept the minutes of the board of directors, since January last. On the 14th of July, 188o, the following resolution was passed unanimously, by the board of directors, in accordance with the consent of stockholders previously filed in the clerk's office: 4 On motion of M. A. Starbuck, seconded by W . 11. 1- at ragher, all voting in the affirma tive, the president and treasurer were author ized to make a bill of sale to Eunice B. Lamberton, in considerati on of the sum of $3, ' 813. 60, of all the property belonging to the corporation, now situated in the Butts building on Aqueduct street in the City of Rochester, N. . , consisting of type and fix tures, including about 1, 000 pounds of body type, about $3o0 worth of display type, about $1,000 worth of job type, one Hoe cylinder lob press, two small presses known as the Peerless and Clipper, one paper cutter, two stoves, one four-horse power steam engine and boiler, two cabi nets, one folder, thirty pair cases and eigh teen job cases, eight stands, cases, tables, chairs, etc. : also all book accounts, both In the newspaper and job printing departments. all money in back, also the good will of the business , including the right to publish the Sunday Herald. Also one double cylinder Hoe preBS, and the print.nj; of the Monroe county court calender. ' The plaintiff was present and voted for that resolution. This bill of sale was in tended to secure Mrs. Lamberton whatever sum the company might owe her. This was stated at the time and was well understood and in pursuance of that resolution the bill of sale was drawn by John A. Barhite, as attorney foi the company. ' After listening to the able arguments of counsel for both sides, Judge Huuisey took tne papers, and reserved his decision. Whom Thev Elected.

President Markham was in the chair at the meeting of the Humane society yesterday afternoon, at their regular rooms in Powers block. A largo attendance was present. The customary report of the agent of the society, Bergh-agent Garrett, was read by him. It gave instances of the usual cases of maltreatment to children and animals, and reported that $60 had been collected in fines in the county, during the past month. The bad condition of the roads had increased the number of cases of cruelty to horses. A letter from the superintendent of the street-railway company was read, requesting the society to take some action in regard , to the habit some citizens have of throwing ashes in the street, and also in regard to the building of bon-fires by children, leaving nails in the tracks which pierce the horses' hoofs. Two or three car- horses are lamed in this manner daily. Rev. James H. Dennis reported regarding the meeting or the JNational association held recently in St. Louis. He stated that in the west more attention was paid to humane education, and the dissemination of humane news, than in the east, and recommended that at an early date Edwin Lee Brown be invited to speak before the Rochester association. Action was also urged upon the recommen dation that in each state means be adopted to secure legislation forbidding the commital of children to any reformatory except for crime, and also, acquiescing in the request that hereafter all associations embrace both children and animals, and be named 4 4 Humane society. ' Joseph Hunn was elected attorney for the association for . the ensuing year, and Dr. Mink veterinary. A large amount of strictly routine business was transacted, and the meeting adjourned. HAVE THEY THE RIGHT? The Question of Authority Between the Boards of Health and Education. The work of vaccinnating the dudIIs of the public schools has progressed, for the main, satisfactorily in this city. The majority of the pupils, through their parents, have ac quiesced in the measure. In a few instances objections have been raised, and a formidable problem at once presented itself. It is understood that the physicians who have had the work In charge have directed, by authority of the Board of health, the principals to notify the scholars that such as refused to be vaccinnated would be excluded from the benefits of the schools. There is a question as to whether thev bavn tnrh right. Some parents in the city, whose cmiaren were vaccinated a lew years ago, insist that a repetition of the measure is uncalled for and unnecessary. In this connection a recent decision at Lockport is of interest. The same question arose there, but in that place a direct issue of authority arose. iState Superintendent of Public In struction ruiggies was appealed to, and be gave as his opinion that in the absence of smallpox among the children, and as a purely preventative measure, the power of exclusion of pupils from schools by reason of their not being vaccinated belongs to the School and not to the Health board. He has transmitted this communication to the secretary of the state board of health. BOLD ROBBERY. A Stranger Steals Twenty Dollars, but Takes Great Chances. " Can you change a $20 bill forme!' inquired a well-dressed young man, as he entered Thompson's creamery, on South St. Paul street, about 6 SO o'clock last evening. Mrs. Thompson was alone in the store at the time, and proceeded to comply with the stranger's request. She counted out $20 in bills and laid them on the counter. No sooner had she done this, than the young man seized the money, together with his own $20 bill, and ran out of the store. Be fore Mrs. Thompson recovered from the surprise of the stranger's movement, he had made good his escape. The police were notified, and Chief Cleary at once detailed detectives to look into the case. The only clue to the bold robber they could obtain was that he was about 25 years old, tall and slight in build, dressed in dark clothes, a derby hat and brown-black overcoat. He had a small black mustache, and wore either a diamond or Rhine atone pin. At last accounts no traces of him had been discovered. The robbery was a bold one. and one in which the perpetrator took great chances. It is to be hoped that he will be speedily apprehended. Cleaning the Streets. Yesterday a gang of men was at work cleaning the pavements on Front street and Exchange place and by nightfall these streets were quite presentable. The work will be continued to-day either on Main or State streets. In speaking of the matter yesterday, a member of the Executive board stated that the present condition of the streets was largely due to the unprecedented weather. 'lhe weather has been such" said he. ' that there has been no opportunity for the sunsuine to melt the snow. The streets freeze at night and even if perfectly clean. the mild weather of the day following would make them wet and muddv. Much of the apparent mud is nothing but snow coated over. The weather ha3 not been warm enough to melt this or cold enough to freeze it as was the case last year. However we have all our men at work and are cleaning as last as possible. ' ' Peissner Post.

A CLAIM FOR A MISTAKE Discussion of the Communication of Frederick C. Seitz Relative to an Item Omitted from His Original Bid Honorary Resolutions. The morning session of the Board of super visors yesterday was largely occupied by a communication from Frederick C. Seitz, presented by Supervisor Stone of the special committee on building the new jaiL Mr. Seitz held a sub-contract for the carpenter and joiner work. The communication stated that a mistake had been made in his estimate for doing the work. He says In an affidavit offered with the communication. that by an oversight he left out of his estimate the sum of $525 when he handed his bid to A. Friederich & Son. who were eiven the contract for building tha jaiL He says that amount was for sash, doors and shutters, and that his bid as sub-contractor for the carpenter work was intended to be $3, 469, instead of $2, 954, which were the ngures that he in fact put in. Mr. Seitz avers that if he is not reimbursed in the above sum he will suffer loss to that extent, as it was his intention to insert that sum in hia bid, and the county will be benefited to that amount by materials and labor for which they have not paid. The deponent refers to the architects and to the contractors, A. Fi iederich & Son, and says they are aware that the sum of $3, 469 instead of $2, 944, s intended to be the bid. He asks to be paid the $525 as a matter of justice. Mr. Seitz' s affidavit is dated March 23, 1885, and is accompanied by an affidavit of John J. L. Friederich, of the firm of Friederich & Son, the contractors, dated December 2, 1885, in which he corroborates the affidavit of Mr. Seitz, and says that that gentleman has faithfully fulfilled the terms of his contract in regard to the sash, doors and shutters, although his figures for that work were inadvertently omitted. After considerable discussion Superinten dent Wood moved an indefinite postponement of the whole subject. His motion was lo9t by a vote of 13 to 22. Supervisor Bntton then moved that the matter be postponed till after the Jail Com mittee had made a complete report, and Mr. Stone explained that the reason the committee had not reported before was because the steam heating apparatus would not be accepted till after it had been thoroughly tes ted by cold weather, and that the committee expected to make a report about January 1st. mere was much more talk on the sub ject, but Mr. Britton's motion was finally carried, (supervisor Pratt moved that the jail building committe be required to report to-aay. ine motion prevailed. Supervisor White presented a resolution that orders be drawn on the treasury for uu eacn for iN. Curtice Holt and Jeremiah Smith for expenses as school commissioners and that the sums be assessed on the first aud third assembly districts. The resolution as laid over to be printed. Supervisor Burritt offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted Dy a rising vote : Whereas, The Board of Supervisors of Monroe County are about to lose the service of one of its most valued members for the three following sessions, by his elevation to a hteher and very responsible position under the city government; uiere- Kexolved, That we extend to our worthy member, LA Pratt, our sincere Congratulations that ha should be honorably and unanimously elected to a pottiiion requiring the best judgment and integrity, aud to the Common Council, our thanks, for their wise discretion in selecting the beat man for a position in which every taxpayer In Monroe County is A recess was then taken until 3 o'clock, at which time Supervisor Leach presented the report of the loan commissioners, which was referred to the committee on United States Deposit Fend. Supervisor Meyer presented the report of the Committee on Alms-house and Superintendent of Poor Account. Tha committee say they find the accounts of the superintendent of the poor and of the warden of the alms house correct, and they recommend an appropriation of $13,000 for the poor fund for the ensuing year $1,000 more than last year. The report was laid on the table. Upon the motion of Supervisor Burritt, the resolution offered by. Supervisor J. H. Brown Tuesday and adopted, compensating the city supervisors for attendance at the meeting of the state assessors in June last, and assessing the aggregate amount on the city of Rochester, was reconsidered; and Supervisor Wood moved that the resolution . be referred to the committee on law and local legislation. This motion was carried unanimously. Supervisor Abeles called up his resolution, that the Trustees of the Court-house and jail advertise for bids for coal and award the contract to the lowest bidder, that the Trustees have the power to employ a person to oversee the weighing of the coaL After some discussion the resolution was divided, the first part being adopted and the second part laid on the table. The resolution of Supervisor Hannan in regard to the compensation paid to persons placing headstones at the graves of indigent veterans, was also called from the table and adopted. Tha abstracts, votes of town meeting and names of assessors of the towns of Mei don and Wheatland, and the votes of the town meeting of Hamlin, and the names of the assessors of Brighton were presented, after which the board adjourned. Resolutions of Respect. At a recent meeting of the Executive board of the University of Rochester the f ol lowing resolutions were offered and adopted in honor of the memory of the late Hon.
