A Report That Did Tfaia City Justice Entertaining Talk With Mr. Alpbonae Ie Doc Mr. Alpbonse Le Due, tbe Unted States ronvn'ssioncr at the Antwerp Universal Exposition, aud r.Iternate commissioner ! pleasure. On from itisiana at the Columbian Exposition, l-i-e eatertaitiins'y yesterday of the Antwerp Eiprjtdtion. "Tl!" Autr.eni reposition came too f'a aftt-r !'

This was nmvcu at Antwerp, where large saies were niide by tiie exhibitor of agricultural machinery, tcn-iii;; machines, cash registers and other America:: inventions, as well as canued goods aud furniture f ir household and clii e. Tlie easy chair and desK representatives Oi a hind office busiiuss. Ait'iongli far from showiug the scope of mir industries, there were more exhibits from the Cuif-d States at Antwerp than at any previous foreign exposition, aud the pcreentace of prizes ob-lnitied-- per cut of the exhibits was lasg'-r than for any other nation. New Onejus carried off several goed prizes. Messrs. Hei-nsb-dm I'.ros. received a grand i pi is for excellent cigar; Messrs. Itun-bar's Sons a gold medal for Louisiana (hriti'p. oysters, etc.. and The Times-Democrat and Picayune obtained s!:ver medals. The American propaganda, to which the country owes a debt of gratitude for the many exhibits from this country o elegantly shown iu l he Auieric;,u building, l.inde the innovation of newspapers competing for pr.zes. Our artists distinguished themselves. Americau paintings in the art builillii? were greatly admired, aud many of the first class uedals were warded to t'uem. I found In a remote corner of the ei-posilku grounds a small apparatus very modestly installed. It presented to the public iu the most simple manner aud by i's various applications a complete tevilutiou in hydraulics and would ppive of immense bcneSt to the rice fields of Louisiana. It is an automatic suction and mrce pump, possessing neither piston or meeh inicai" organs, wnich works by li.eans of hydraulic gases. The pump is absolutely automatic in its action, requiring bo attention whatever, puitnu; Itself instantly la motion and delivering a verj- large ijuatity ot water per minute St an exceedingly small cost. Mr. J. B. l amors, of this city, who wf president ct tbe ji.rv ot awards on machinery at the Antwerp Exposition, has a tuii description of the pump. By the way. Mr. Cantors' colleagues, t ue judges of award at the Aniwerp F.xpositiou. sent mm a very handsome solid silver cigar case an a V ken of liieir esteem aud rfSpreci.it ion. Besides Mr. lat'iois there were se'"i al otber lulsiauians then in Kuroe, members of the jury of awards. 'J'be side shows of the exposition were fuby up to the Chicago Midway 1'lai-sancc. The Streets of Cairo weie even more realistic, cud there was nothii g in the Windy City to equal 'ld Antwerp, with its stamp of originality. Here all The surroundings eoiitriliuted t an esthetic result, especially the Fh-iuisii architecture, as well as the costumes and local habit sad customs; also t 'o festivals. srtc.j-s and kirmesses. cavalcades and processions, v.bicu were given every week to the pui.ii . "At the exiH.siti.il I met Col. Charles J. Murphy, employed by the United States (rovernmeut to introduce corn iu Kurope as lood foi hutuau beings. He is a very amiable gentleman, but he gave tue a nart ling piece of news. He told me that fce bad discouraged the orpaulzatn n of a steamship line between New Orleans and Sweden, on the reeoniuien.latu n 'f tbe United States Secretary of Agriculture, liecause of the danger of corn heating while iu transit iu tbe Gulf of Mexico. As I have had a great dctl of experience in that line I proved the error of the assertion to hU tatisfact on. 1 le-lieve. but the mischief was done for that vrcainship company. Tbe Bo&rds of Trade rf New Orleans, oi ?t. laiuis, auu otner Mississippi Valley cities shomd apprise the Sccretarv of Agriultur of the error ff his ways. This false statement, in-Tented liv our enemies, was exposed long ago: to long ago that I was astonished to lieiir of it aiisiin. Xotwithsti uding this.

It was a suit ou a con tract, defendants .having agreed to deliver to lawyer Bros, their building by a specified time, and in failing to do so the plaiutlffs claim that the delay aud trouble cost tbem a great deal of money, and brought suit. Judge Ellis gave plaintiffs a Terdict for $."w43 SO, with legal interest aud costs. The decision la as follows: Uwyer Bros, vs. Tulaue Educational Fund. lleasons jor judgment: In cases of this Baiure, U. C. c, lliii, provides that actual loss sustained and deprivation ot pronts are measures ot uume. aud tnat in the assessment much discretion is entrnsted to the judge or Jury, the object being to "funy inut-uinlfy iu creditor," wlc-u tbe comracl tas been broken by fault or negligence. there Is proof am pie that plaintiffs were put to the extra, expense of gas, labor, storage room, elevator service, carfare and meals, aud l extra nig':t work personally during the delayed term of tu contract, i. from Oct. 1 t delivery of the building. These extra expenses and all this extra service aDd personal lalxir in the ueccssary liandling of their gwxls were the results, direct and iuuucuate. of the changes which tbey bad made, as the faith or defendants' contract to deliver the building liu which nothing of the kind, either in expense or service, would have lecn required on Oct. 1. Iicfendants knew that plaintiffs" sole object in the contract was to obtain ample laciliites for their larze and rapidly grow-n; business, aud the losses to which I i.iintitls were subjected by reason of defendants" failure to deliver ou Vt. 1 tc nei-cssariiv within the contemplation of the patties." atul ergo the proper ele-m nts of damage iu the event of a breach of siid contraci. Iu the assessment of damages sustained iu the loss of profits the rule is that chrysanthemums and black l.n-e. formed a rich contrast to some of the heavier toilettes.

I have not lost sight of the fact that son e time would have been consumed in ' tuo'-inz int!t the new store and in arrang-I inc their cols. etc.. therein. All of Ida ntiffs' trouble and Inoonveuietu-e after V . 1 nd up to tbe final delivery of the bo Iding were occasioned by defendants" ne:le-t ml brench of contract, and these wi re the sole causes of tbe extra expenses in -urred necessarily in prosecuting their brsiiiss ursler the'chaneel conditions, re-si Itins from the contract and its breach: at d these were. also, the sole causes of tie loss of profits, which, beyond all qtics-ti n. they were in oosition to earn and woti'd have realised if defendants bid fult.lled the cortract. In fixing the actual d images I have made reductions from the f ill amounts proved, as In tho matter. I r example, of the ens bill and personal extra servi-es and labor and time bestowed and expended by plaintiffs themselves at night. In my estimate of f.in(iO as loss of profits I 1-ave not ignored tbe fact that plaintiffs wer.- conducting tnelr nuslness as Dest ness of the convention, including the or- j ganizatlon of a Southern Interstate league, before the afternoon adjournment. Tbe programme for the day follows: Call to order at noon and address on the subject of bailot reform by Hon. J. C Manning (ropulite). of Alabama, as chairman pro teui. Addresses by Seci-etary of State T. S. Ada.ns (Farmers' Alliance!. Dr. H. Dickson Bruns tDeni.). W. S. Parkerson, Esq., and Hon.

Enrollment of delegates and appointment of committees, unriug the deliberation of which addresses will be delivered by visiting delegates. Action on reports of committees and adjournment. At H o'clock to-night there will be an open nieetiug. to which the general pul-lic, including tbe ladies, is invited. Addresses will be delivered at the night meeting- by Congressman Howard, who Is the author of "If Christ Came to Congress," and other prominent men. Mr. Mamiinc s.ii 1 last nizht that whils he had received letters and telegrams of regret aud Indorsement from a numlier of prospective delegates, there would still be a large nttmlwr on band, and he expected the convention to be a most satisfactory one In its results. The selection of speakers for the ociiing addresses spoke fir the uon-partisan nature of the convention, and he was sure that with men so thorouchly imbued with zeal in the cause of ballot reform the convention could net fail to effect the organization and institute the campaign of education that fce honed for from it. Congressman Howard, who will address both the convention and tbe night meeting, reached here yesterday, as did also Secretary Adams. Hon. Harry Mi-Call of Little Rock, and Col. Thomas Fletcher of the Montgomery tAbi.) Journal. All of ttem are enthusiastic supporters of tie reform movement and sanguine of ultimate success proportionate to the activity of the supporters of the movement.

It will lie remembered fiat on the occasion of the recent visit of the Vauderbilt Glee Club to New Orleans mention was made of the fact that Dr. W. L. Dudley, one of the professors of tbe uriversity, who accompanied the boys on their Southern tour, was engaged In perfecting the organization of a Southern Intercollegiate Association. but that all tbe details had not been arranged at that tiaie. Finally the announcement or the organization bas been made, and Its official name will he the Southern Ir.tercollegate Athletic Associa tion. Dr. W. L. Dudley, of Vanderbilt University, and Dr. Chas. H. Hertz, Instructor of athletics in the University of Geor gia, were the moving spirits in founding the new association, wtlch Is composed of the fo'l.iwing cleees: T'nlversitv of Georgia. Iniversity of North Carolina steamers ' Vanderb'lt University. Georgia School of Ceremonies at a Meetlna- of the W. C. T. U. With bauds full of outside work, tbe W. C. T. U. did not let their regular Thursday meeting pass unattended, but met yesterday as usual at the Bible bouse, on Camp street, and brought with them their honored guest, Mrs. M. M. Snell. The meeting was called to order by Mrs. A. Zable. tbe president, who read the second chapter of Tit is, which was followed by Mrs. Adl.inson delivering an earnest prayer for the. support of the work iu which they are engaged. After the leading of the iniuutes Mrs. j Barr reiorted that there was nothing spe- t cial in her department of evangelical work, while Mrs. Spear reported that everyiWS Is being arranged for the tea at the iSetbcl SatuiJay light, at which Mrs. Snell v.V.1 speak to tbe sailors. The annual meeting f tbe W. C. T. U. will be bold at the First Baptist Church at -n. in. Thursday, 4th instant. Mrs. Snell, though somewhat fatigued, gave a short talk ou the grea.1 good wbicu has been done through the M.i'e of Mis-sissiptd, and especially, iu Columbus, the ladies found by aciual statistics that business had improve,! and crime bad been less since the prohibition law had leen in force, and to such au extent that the W. C. T. U. felt encouraged to try at tbe :iext meeting of the State legislature to make prohibition n full law. After little tnlk by Mrs. Zabie the meeting adjourned, as nu eiicageinent await-l them lit the Soldiers' Hone, where about seventy-five old soldiers assembled in the lit. rill i- Cot." Zable Introduced Mrs. Snell, who j cieiied the meeting by s':i ging and prayer. Mrs. Snell said this was tbe first time she bad ever bad au opportunity to talk to the soldiers, anil she was proud to snv that she was the daughter of a Confederate soldier, and happy to meet I there so iiinay of his comrades, than whom no braver or more valiant ever lived. She then cave a temperance talk, j Kne complimented Southern women on j what thev hud ceoniplisbed. She bad st.MMl with the old Soldiers and wept with ot a it (i ttotti Technology. University of the South. Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama, and Johns Hopkins University. The officers of the organization are V. L. Dudley. Vanderbilt Unlversitv. president: R. F. .V Millan. Agricultural and Mechanical. College of Alabama vice president, and Charles H. Hertz. University of Georgia, secre tary and treasurer. The officers and executive committee have drawn up a very rigid constitution, which has been signed by the colleges named, and which pledges against all professionalism and Is calcinated to do a great deal toward purifying atbleti-s in tbe South. Great interest was shown In the convention held In Atlanta on Dec. 'XI. and delegates from all the colleges were present. A schedule of basenall games Is being arrantred for the spring season, ind a meeting for track athletic contests between all of these colleges will le held In the third week of next May. Football si:i-e lvpl has been a leading sport In the South, and the past season was a brilliant one. North Carolina. Vanderbilt. Georgia. Universitr of the South, and the A. and M. College of Alabama each developed star teams. Next season, with the help of the new association, ts expected to be a better ene still. A cham-pionsliin trooliv will be offered and a schedule of games arrantred. so that all the colleges In the assocation will compete. The success of the season jtist past shows t'nrt the Sonthern people have gotten the football craze quite as badly as 4 tie ornern Profilers. Other e-ollejres will also lie admitted to the association, and the students of Tn-lane are very anxious t tie admitted to the athletic meet whbh tbey ar- endeavoring to have held In this citv. They will not enter the baseball lmcue this spring, but next fall the f.Kitball team will undoubtedly enter the race for chamtdon-ship honors and tbe f othall enthusiasts of New Orleans may see the deciding game of tbe season pltyed on tbe home grounds. YOUNG MEN'S BISINESS LEAGUE. The Board of Directors of the Young Men's Business League will hold their resulfr meetine to-night, when the officers for tbe present year will lie selected. SUSPECTS THE FATHER'S INTENTION. Abraham C.ilWrt. residing at N'o.

The little fellow stated that bis fatber would not rli.iw h'tn to go to seliooL Recorder Whitaker tod Gillwrt that he could cot !w a g.tod father if dp cooin uor coniroi a utile dov that thev realized profits therefrom. If they had sot teen compelled to reject orders because of inability to handle the goods by reason of their changed condition, resulting from tbe contract and Its breach, and if they could have otherwise conducted their business in the new and ample store, which defendants had contracted to deliver on Oct. 1. there Is no d uht in my mind that they would have easily earned $.' profits, which were lost to them. All these actnal extra expenses and these profits In business must have been in the contemplation of the parties wuen me contract was made anil when fhe time of delivery was fixed. I believe that bit estimate is conservative. and I feel that If I have erred In my cal culation and assessment the error bas heen aeaiust plaintiffs. I do not donbt that their losses were more than the amounts I have awarded, but I have endeavored to exclude everything which might be speculative and to Include only what might fairlv be recarded as within the contem plation of the parties when they made the contract as the probable results of Its prejicn ny defendants. I have carefully studied the ease, and while I have found Its issues bv no means free f-oni difficulty I lielleve that I have reached conclusions which are fair and just under an the ctrcumstances. In regard to the causes which hindered me completion and deliverv of the build lne contract-d for I find no evidence of anytnmg wnien mlgnt not have reasonably lH.en foreseen. The locus in ono rnd Its snrroundinss and all the possibilities and contingencies and risks of d.-!ay in me erection or snch a buiidm? miut have l.een within the knowle,Lre of de- iennaurs arcmrects and employe, and. with this knowledse. which must be Imputed to defendants, thev Avert Oct i as thejerm of the contract, i. e.. as the day for delivery. There was no eanse or ntnarance, amounting in law to the vis major. I believe that defendants were earnest and honest In their efforts to fulfill th contract and that thev did all In tbeir power to assist Plaintiffs when thev fonml that delivery could not be made as stits-ulited. bnt the fact remains that in this particular the contract was broken .i that its breach inflicted loss and damage uM'u iue maiuiins. As to the Issue of default, Tel non, decided that Issue noon the documentary and oral evidence which was brought by the parties upon the trial of the exception. I do not And the written reasons wnicn i tiled in the record, but I have reviewed that issue on the whole case as niaue. ana mv opinion remains unchanged. There is no dispute that defendants failed to ueiiv. r the Liu 1.1, nc on Oct. 1. and that piainnna nan previousir notified defend ants that they would insist on the con rail, ami mar o-'tendauts went on to complete me mulling, and when com pleted did deliver it. To this enet tern porary arrangements were made for plaintiffs' convenience. Plaintiffs' letter or nepr. r. demanded th ami t cer insistence upon the contract, and oeieii'iams letter or epf. J shows th.l defendants so understood. The former letter notifies that arrangements" will be made t the expense of defendants and the letter of plaintiffs of Sept 8 Is notice of plaintiffs" demand of damage for the breach of contract, which is In nowise Impaired, becsnse It sitirgests a method of fair and amicable adjustment of said Damages. i ne crtrresnondence proceeds after these letters, those of plaintiff n re! n T the adjustment of the damages, and those of defendants evadlns the iss'ie. until we finallv have defendants' letter denyinir plaintiffs" right to damazes. and ell this before tUn suit was hronsht Whatever plaintiffs may hive thontrht of their richt to throw tin the contract In the event that defendants, instead of evadlne. had promptly disputed their richt to d imare. does not fiirnre. for the f ict remsin tbst tnev Insisted npon and demanded the fulfillment of the contract and iwnitied defendinfs of their damatre end of their cl.-'n: for reivtratlon. and all tis prior t'- Oct. 1. and pr'or to any cb-ee In Cielr condition.

Dirmeyer, who bas been the popular and enterprising secretary of the Exchange for the past nine years, was deservedly re-elected to the position of secretary. When the routine business had been transacted the members of the Exchange went to the rear room of the buildltg, wuere the newly-elected officers and di rectors had prepared an elecant lunch in honor of the occasion, and tor an hour or o jollity reigned to tbe exclusion of everything else. President Aitken was cauea on to make an address, and the gentlcnan threw himself Into tbe breach and made a very nappy and pleasant ora- iiou upon tue sunjeel or. me Uuslnesa or the Lxchance. He said that Le appre ciated tbe honor which bia fellow-members bad conferred npon hiiu, and that durits me coming year he would endeavor to push tbe objects of the organization in such a manner as to reflect credit upon the Institution. In conclusion he made a few remarks touching npon the attention which bad been given to the demands of tbe Kxchange by the various officials, and asked that tbe co-operation of every meia- uer ue giveq mm uuring me year. Mr. Aitken was followed by Mr. J. N. O'Connor, who complimented the president for the zeal which that gentlen.an bad exhibited in tbe past. He was In turn followed by W. A. Krone. Secretary Dirmeyer recited a touching spring poem ior me eaincauon ot the guests. Tbe reception of three young ladies into the novitiate of the order and tbe administration of the sacrament of confirmation to twenty-nine young girls was tbe occasion, of solemn ceremonials for the Sisters Marianites of the Holy Cross In the chapel of their Academy of the Holy Angels, corner Kainpart and Congress streets, yesterday morning. Tbe roomy chapel, which hides itself behind the walls snrrouudicg the convent property, was crowded by the guests and friends who had assembled to be present at the reception. The hig t altar gleamed white from the lights of the circling tapers, and found its companion pieces in the side altars, burdened with flowers. Through the nine curtained windows the light fell ou tbe exquisite paint ius which adorn tbe sanctuary, but it was not to thia that the kneeling congregation turned their attention, but to the little procession which slowly entered the chapel, which was led by the Kev. Mother and Mistress of Novic's, and the three postulants. Miss Kdna Houston of Algiers, Miss Frances Sloss of Lake Charles, aud Miss Mary Berlieuse of New Orleans, attired in their bridal robes. The two former were in white nuns' veiling en ttnin, their while veils held in place by lilies of the valley. Miss Berlieuse, who walked in tbe ecntre, was gowned in cream, brocaded salln, with a garniture of pearl passamenterle, her tulle veil shading tbe face, foil from a wreath of orange blos soms. bite slippers and long whl e gloves completed these toilettes as those who wore them, with bent heads, approached the altar. His Grace Archbishop Jans- sens was accompanied by Her. Father I"rlni and Rev. Father Klein, who acted as assistants. Also Rev. Father Davis, S, J.; Rev. Father McGuire, S. J.; Rev. Father Deuoyel, chaplain of the Ursu- lines; Rev. Father Drosseart, of St. Vincent de Paul; Rev. Father Van Der Yen, of St. Charles; Kev. Fathers Uomaiu, S. M., and Dempsey, S. M.. both of Algiers; Iter. Father Vanderbilt, of S"s. Peter and 1'aul, and Kev. Father Se nines, of Savanna ii. Having taken their place at the altar the aichUshop announced that he would first administer the sacrimciit of cou-hruiation. but before doiug so made a utile address to tbe children full of instruction and good advice, which might lie followed by persons grown old iu the battle of life.

Keferriug to the first least of Pentecost, his Grace said Holy Thursday had brought the betrayal by Judas, Good Friday the denial of Peter; but in the coming of the Holy Ghost the aposiies who bad feared were made brave and wteu tbey were Ignorant they were made wise; a faith which had before been weak had. after the coming of the Holy Ghost, ocen aide to say: ' l'ou may kill us but we will serve the LonL" Such was tbe faith and devotion which the archbishop told tbe children tbey must have. Going further, he mentioned the duties of a Christian and gave examples which Christ Himself had set; ior instance, ms waiting tweuty-mree miles to attend church, enduring all that hardship rather than neglect His reli gious duties.

With this end in view let every member of the com ma no. determine that we, like the Seventh Regiment of New York, shall have a list of men di.lug regular drill service and waiting for a vacancy in the limit of members fixed to prevent overcrowding." Some weeks ago The Tiiues-Democrat published the fact that the battalion had made arrangements under which as much as (S.i.tJuu would be advanced for the building of an armory as soon as the officers shall bave made requisition. What the arrangements are have not transpired, but so soon as Major Wood and the other officers of the battalion decide that tbe steadily Increasing strength of the battalion demands au ar uory owned by the command work on it will be coinineuced-Oiie of the privates of Company C, Sidney G. de L'lsle, has already submitted plans for the armory. While tbe uraw-ings bear tbe name of S. t. de L'lsle & Co., the plan is the work of Private de L'lsle himself, and has already .met with the hearty endorsement of the battalion, both rank and file. When the time comes to build tiie battalion may, of course. select other plans If It sees fit, but the special committee appointed to select a sue Ior iiie armory think that Mr. de L'lsle's plan cannot well be improved upou. auu that it will therefore be accepted iu the eud. Tiie drawings, which hang In the armory on Coiniuou street over the headquarters of tbe Board of Auctioners, are based upon a ground frontage of two lots, or sixty feel, but tbe details of the plan are such that a widening of tbe building would only result in an improvement ol au already satisfactory disposition of floor space. According to Mr. de L' I ale's plan the front of the armorv will show thre stories height, with a battlement tower at the left-hand corner. The crest of tbe front will also be In tbe stvle of a medieval battlement, while the general plan of the front elevatiou will be of modern architecture of a semi-renaissance style, similar to the lines of the new Mate National Bank aud the Arts and Sciences College of Tulane Universitv. The main entrance will be a triple doorway with a semicircular top, measuring ten fleet across at the floor. Part e.f the immediate frent of the Interior will be a corridor or generous proportions, from which winding stairs will lead to the second sforv at the left end- To the right, of the front will be the officers' room, "measuring about twenty-five feet square. Tbe hail, which will run parallel to the corridor and immediately back of it. will lead Into the officers' room, which will also open Into the corridor and the drill hall. The rear end of tne offii-ers" room and the rear side of the hall will form the front line of the drill hall. The drill hall will be 1 feet long and 3Tr'feet wide or more, according to the width of tbe front In addition to the sixty feet basis upon which the plans were prepared. At tbe right-hand rear corner will lie a large toilet room, opening into the boiler room and the shower and needle baths. The left side of the ground plan which will extend a little beyond the rear line of the drill hall, will be taken up by four company rooms, measuring feet by 23 each, and a boxing ami fencing room measuring 17 feet by i. The officers' room, which will, of course, tie the headquarters and office of the battalion, will also be the reading room. The second floor will contain a ball, a saloon measuring 16 feet bv 24. and ladies' a ad gentlemen's toilet rooms over the space occupied on the ground floor by the nan. corridor and omeers room. The rest ot the second floor will consist of an audi torium measuring 58 feet by 115. a stage and two greenrooms at either side.

A Charsre of Obstraetloas In the Gstter Investigated. Tresident JL M. Llttell, of the Xew Orleans Traction Company, was tried yes terday before Recorder Whitaker for violating several ordinances relative to plac ing oostructions In tbe gutter on Common street, near Carondelet, and preventing the flow of water. John Maboney, the foreman of the street gang of the third ward, brought the charge against Mr. i -....ji . I curr .ir1 ,s uauu ",lu TOPie God had come to their hearts and called a wayward lire; these, explained the archbishop, were the sorrows which would be spared them. But what tbey would have was tbe trouble of breaking down tbeir own will; how tbey must live wun those who in many respects would not be congenial, bnt their lives mt.st be passed In peace and harmony, but in this Hie they would be sustained by the sorrows of the Blessed Mother, and drawing a picture of the seven dolors, which was made more real by the sight of the statue of the "lleta." which rested above tbe altar, his grace passed to the life of Christ, which from His infancy was one of obedience; that no matter what oc curred, to know His will and do it; that of the ordinances bearing on the case and read them to the court when he had concluded his testimony. He told Recorder Whitaker that rails belonging to the Traction Company had been placed by employes In the gutter at the above-stated place and that they were not moved until tweuty-nve days after he urst notified Mr. Liiteii. This was during tbe month of lN-ceuilier. Mr. Mahoney served two no tices on the accused before the obstruction was moved. It was shown by the w itnesses for tue defense that .the rails had been placed ou a bridge built ever the gutter, but that the support was broken down by the columns, used In the building or tne i.ondon. Liverpool and taem, and they had answered o their own free will, and had been led to peace an sanctity; that the same voice had called them further, and they had come to-day in tneir nridai rones to tnelr blessed spouse; that for Hiui they had left home and parents, the world aud i s way, and their names, and his grace prayed that they would persevere in the Htm they had chosen of sanctity and good works, that they micht oi.tain tbe eternal reward which awaited them. At the close of the archbishop's address me postniants approached the alt.tr rail. wnere tney made Known in firm, clear voices their desire of entering the order of the M.-rianifes of the Holy Cross, aod ou receiving tbe habit and veil of the Globe building being placed on top of I order, left the chapel to assume their new them. After Jlr. .Manoney s nrst notice l garns. was received the rails were taken from the cutter and placed on other timber. and again the support gave away because of additional weight. The rails were taken away altosrether when Mr. Manonev sent the second notiie. Recorder Whiraker in passing ludirment on the cases said that it was his opinion that the Traction Company had complied with the notices of Mr. Mahoney as far as it was in their power, aud he. therefore, dismissed the c-harges. His honor commended Mr. Mahoney for his jteaT In enforcing city ordinances. The prosecutor replied: And T will always do mv duly, mar It please God, even inongh I do receive small W2S.

A Soapsaaker Solas for His Salary. A lively discussion took place before Judge Theard. of the Civil District Court, yesterday between Attorneys Frank L. Richardson and Henry P. Dart. In the rase of George M. Harrison against the Commercial Soap, Candle and Starch Manufacturing Company. Mr. Dart represented the plaintiff who was suing for ?16TjO and two shares of stock, valued at $25 a share. Testimony in the case was heard some time ago. and argument made yesterday. The plaintiff sued tbe Soap Company on a contract. He claimed to have made a contract with them front February. 1SVH, to February, IStO. as a soapmaker, at $130 a mouth, besides which he was to get some shares of stock. He avers that the coin pa By discharged him without any good and valid reason, and on this account he brought the suit. The claim of the defense was that the company wanted to get rid of Harrison for business reasons, and not owing to incompetency or anything of that kind. The defendant company claimed that Har rison was not only incompetent. Ui.t that he maliciously destroyed a lot of soap material. During the progress of tbe trial Judge Tlieard's division was filled with soap of ail kinds, aud the process of manufacturing it was made familiar to his honor and all connectei with the court. Yesterday there were a number of In terested spectators at the argument. which lasted for several hours. Mr. Ifcirt spoke tirst. and he denounced roundly several witnesses wno nan testaioi in the case, accusing them of subornation, periurv aud several other pleasant mis demeanors, and made the point that the company had acted altogether unfairly toward Mr. Harrison. Mr. iticnaruson replied to Mr. Dart, and asserted that Harrison had been discharged because of ini-omneteney. and because he had ruined a lot of soap material. Tbe discussion was enioved by a number ot spectators besides those interested In the case. Judge Theard took the matter under advisement. INT OLDEN TIMES People overlooked the importance of permanently beneficial effec's and were satisfied with transient action: but now that it is generally known that Synp of Figs will permanently cure habitual constipation, well-informed people will not buy other laxatives, which act for a time, but Anally Injure the system.
