While the conversation waa in progress Jar. il arris observed over tne shoulder of Swan three or four suspicious-looking bruisers, who carried formidable canes.

Swan cried, striking sa attitude oa his entrsnee. brandishing a whip, and calling in three or four other warlike individuals standing outside. Swan made a few cut la tbe air.

BROCKWAVS OFFICE, r TheO aty Committee Waance aaa v'awllelarr Coaaider the Affairs sT the ffsserJer's Peed BrtdteM la Support eg Broeawaya XaV CieHTtaVf The joint Committee on Judiciary and Finance. to whom was referred the investigation of the charges made against Recorder Broekway. be gan their Investigation yestsrdsy afternooa. Commissioner Fltsgerald said that the object of the meeting was to show to ths people of this county what It cost to run the abstract department of the Recorder's Office. The report offered by Brock wsy was not correct, snd he would prove it by Mr. Peltzer. who was then naked to step forward snd show ths defects. Mr. Peltzer said tbe Raenrder had omitted to add In the SI. 250. which hsbsd refuaed to give the county. He also pointed out some other defects. ... Commissioner Fitzgerald said that ths abstract department of the Recorder s office was costing tbe county SlS.7tt3.97 annually. . ... Recorder Broekway denied ft, and said the fig' area showed nothing of the kind. Mr. Peltzer said that the exact amount er nenrfad for the keening nn of theae boots 9.818.BO. Hs would assume entire control, and would agree to Isaac the books ol tbe county snd bind himself to charge no more for abstracts than Is now charged. He would tnue save nearly io,- OOO annually to Cook County. Mr. Maaaav said that Peltzer was not correct lu his figure. That bs could not arrive at correct conclusions by deducting $17,813 from 'J7.684. B should have deducted from tbeS9.814 upward of S2.000 for clerk hire, which could not be dispensed with even though the abstract department wae taseu awar i r " lu iu, nwnrun viuvv. Commissioner Soofford said that tbe truth about tbe matter was that Peltzer and others sold the books to tbe county. The books were n a terrible condition, and a large expense had been entailed upon the county to put them In good order. Commissioner Fltsgerald strenuously opposed the introduction of ibis evidence. He was. however, defeated, and Mr. Danleia was called, snd said tbe boose were very imperfect when they were sola ths county. It would hsve taken three men six years ts put ths books In a perfect condition. There bad always been from two to three dim kept constantly working the books into a good condition. Me. Bushweh was called, and stated that the books were not according to tbs law. and It required considerable work to get them Into shape. Parts of the books were being revised snd flxed up now. Tbe books were over bO per cent better now than whea they came into tbe Recorder's office. Hec order Broekway affirmed tnat mere could be no retrenchment in hie department. All his employee were efficient and worthy men. Commissioner Cleery said tnat ne would like to know abont tbe blackmailing business: whether or not Mr. Broekway had compelled his sl-rks to pay him 825 per quarter. It was agreed that these cnar gee snouid ne made epeeiflcsily In writing next Monday by Commissioner Fltsgerald. Oa merlon the com mittee adjourned until 3 o eiocx Wednesday art- ernoon. wbsn they will xuriner consider matter. THAT "LITTLE BLONOE."

People who still adhere ta the look-st-your- tongue-and-feel-of-your-pulse doctor sometimes express not a little curiosity in regard to Dr. R. T. Pierce's original method of distinguishing all forms of ebronlo disease without personal consultation. Some even suppose that be accomplishes this through olalrvoyanee. or some other species of professional jugglery. All this is ut- teily false. He claims to determine disease by the rational methods of science only. Bert Co al ley, tn his Biogrsphlcai Encyclopedia of New York Bute, speaking of this distinguished physician: "He perceived that la each of the natural selenoes the Investigator proceeds ac cording to a sytfera of aigas. The geologist in his cabinet eeeurstely determines and describes ths cleft of roes, which he. has nsver seen, from the minute specimen on his table. And the chemist in his laboratory notes the constituents of the sun witn the same precision tbst .he analyses a crystal of rock salt. The analogous system de veloped by Dr. Pierce In Medical Science is worthy of his genius, and has made his name justly celebrated." por a full explanation of this ingenious system of diagnosis, see the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser, sent, post-paid, to any address on receipt of one dollar and fifty cents.

If any one who doesn't know what has happened enters noisily ganger is laid upon a hp. and ths aew comer Is bidden "Hush," The prisoner who likes to amuse him or her self by keeping tbe whole Inelghbor hood awake with yells, is silenced effectually if obstreperous, by some means known only to the force, Whea a platoon changes off It . Is - done much more quietly than of yore, and - the incoming squad. whea they sit down In a circle to smoke a pipe and exchange Ideaa before "turning In." don't laugh quite so loudly when any one of the number gets on an unusually good thing. This is vsry creditable to the bora What Bret Harte so touchlngiy a escribed in ttosring Uaup has happened at the Armory. "The Luck" haa come to it. Within the grim old bunding a child was born aaraprl at W mnpnlna ths Maa at J tarn at at h- n ear aa and mother and babe will be sheltered there tor some aeys yet. .roor little mother: she Is only 19 veare old. and does not look aa If aha had known tbs Inside of many jails. It Is a ease of mystery, and one of sush a nature that no important details csn be learned regarding it. Officer Jsmes Kerwln Is responsible for this im portation into the Armory. That is to say. Officer her win took the unfortunate little mother there. He was traveling bis post on State street at a o clock yesterday morning, and bearing some one mosning proceeded to No. 348. and found a slight and fair-haired youpg woman sitting by the roadside in great pain. Perceiving the poor tbings situation ne pushed open tbe door or &a4, and. laying her gently down inside, rsn oil snd returned with Dr. Hildebrandt. That gentlemen said that what was going to be done must be done very quickly. There was no time to get to the County Hospital, he said. and. a hak being summoned, tne charge waa naatiiy removed to the Armory, and made as comfortable circumstances would permit In one ot tne witness rooms, snd there, within an hour, a girl babe ssw tbe light of dsy through iron-barred doors and grated windows. The young women tust managea to- ssy that ner name was Mary lansburr. that her husband was in England, and that she had arrived from St. Louis the night previous. When found by Officer Kerwln she had just descended from a street-ear. but whether she bad escaped from soms houae or been wandering about all night is not yet known. Little mother snd little stranger are both ia charge of one ot tbe female prisoners, and the bulletin at midnight from Lockup M alone y was. "Mother and anna doing well. ' ANNOUXCEKENT.

HOYNE AND THE COUNTERFEITERS. Tbe trlsl of tbs gang of counterfeiters waa t stimed yssterdsy before Commissioner Home. The first witness examined was Mr. lad. a lo comotive engineer. He tee tilled that be had fre quently met Hartmaa and Lee at the Tivoli. and on one occasion had seen Lee give Hartman 93 in silver. Hs had heard Hartman ask Lee for the money, and supposed that It was a loan. . R H. Wallace, a machinist, was the next and last witness exsmlned. He bad seen Hartman give soms silver quarters and half dollars to a man unknown to turn la front of the Tivoli a week ago last Tuesday. . . . The case was argued a lensth by the attorneys for tbe defense, and Judge Bangs replied for the nrnaeeutlon. i Commiasioner Home considered the evidence against Hlggentsom as not sufficient to prove bis guilt, and therefore- discharged him. The otber four were beld to tbe Linited plates court. (J a Is g and Hartman in sl.Ouo each, and Lee and Hoover in a.ouo seen. A LIVELY FIRM. The Dsnsmaa-Drummoad Tobacco Company commenced another suit yesterday for aa alleged infringement of their patent plug tobacco. This cries ot suits are likely to become celebrated eases. The first ia order of time was their suit against Plnxsr Bros., of LouisvUle; the second. against Lorrlllard ft Oo undoubtedly tne largest manufacturers of tobacco la tbe country; and how the lightning strikes the Petersburg bouse of Tenable ft Co. both parties in tbe Lorrlllard ease, it is stated, bsve been extensively engaged in taking evidence, and the matter will come on for preliminary bearing at aa early day. The LorrULarde have long been recognised aa the leaders ia tne tobacco trade; but the Dsusmsn ft seems, revolutionizes tne trade to the extent of almost entirely excluding unmarked pound plug tobacco from the market. aad hence, if the Inventors succeed in their suit. the Lorrillards. instead of leadlng.lmut become tributaries to tbe Western manufactory la that branch of their business. The trade here look upon the patent plug as a Chicago enterprise. In vented, put upon the market, and managed by a Chicago man. his friends here are naturally inter ested In his suecess. aad tbs audacity with which tbs largest and richest houses la the country bsvs been attacked, and the vigor witn which tne attack has been suooorted. obtains and com mands the respect ot both friends aad enemies. A SUGGESTION TO THE TRAVELINGPU8UC. Tourists, emigrants aad mariners find that Hostetters Btorrach Bitters is a medicinal safeguard against unhealthful influences. . upon which they can implicitly rely, since it prevents the effects that an unhealthy climate, vitiated atmosphere, unaeeustomsd or unwholesome dist. bad water, or otber conditions unfavorable to health would otherwise produce. On long voy ages, or joumsys by land in latitude adjacent to the equator, it Is especially useful as a preventive of the febrile complaints and disorders of tbe stomach, liver and bowels, which are apt to at tack nstlves of the temperate soaee sojourning or traveling la such regions, and It is aa excel lest protection against the influence of extreme cold, sudden changes ot temperature, exposure to damp or extreme fatigue. It not only pre vents intermittent and remittent fever, and other diseases of a malarial type, but eradicates them, a fact which has bcea notorious for years psst la North sad South America, Mexico, the West Indies, Australia and other countries.
