Th West Chicago avenu polio ar after a gang of thug who hav bean nuking tbe streets in that district dangerous during the last week or more. During that time a number of people bare, been robbed, and some of them hare reported at the station. About 11 o'clock Monday night a laborer came into the station and mads a complaint His clothes were torn and blood was oozing from wound above b.i forehead full? three inches long. Ee had been "held up" at the corner of West Ohio and Sangamon atrewts by three men. One held a revolver to his faoe, another held his hands, and the third went through his pockets. He had nothioe with him but a razor. They took that Then one of them insisted he should take off his coat The man refused and another of the thugs hit him over the head with a club. Before the blow could be repeated he Jerked away and ran. They did not follow him. The laborer had Just finished his story and left the station, when a man came running up the stops in state of great excitement He had no coat or vest on, but wore a new silk hat which was badly broken. The man proved to be Louis BchClti, Jr., the son of a former West Park Commissioner. Schnltn lives at No. 4IH Milwaukee avenue. He came home at midnight from a party on the North Bids by way of the Chieam mniM brides. At the corner of San- gamon street and West Chicago avenue three tuen were standing. One of them stepped in front of him, at the same time the other two closed in behind him. Th wan in front leveled revolver, bat notwitnstandiug this Hchulta Itarted to run across the street One of the men saugb him and threw him roughly down upon the pavement He scrambled to bis feet, and nail tha olf-nooaBaaion to Dick OP his hat and out it upon his head sgain. Just as coolly the same fellow again aimed the revolver at mm, anl told him it would be best to pass etit out Schulu submitted, while Ihe two men went through his pockets. Among other things they got a gold aratnh and rium and 12 in moneV. With th big fallow in front with the revolver they ordered him to march to the cearest street lamp. He did so, and there by the light they xaniined his clothes. They were good ones. The big man ordered Schulu to strip. He look off his coat and then his vest Both were ktkan possession of bv the thieves.- He was then ordered to inarch forward on Chicago ave nue, and not to look back. When he turned to look back thev had disappeared. Schulta was self-possessed through it all He looked in every direction for a policeman, but could see none during all the time they were searching mm. When Schultx made his complaint at the itation several officers were immediately sent out Thev could not rind the men. Bchnlue was able to crive a rerv rood description of them. and the police are confident that they will be a: rated w rvsooa. Complaints La been made at tne station before, however, against the same ' MARY M'G URN'S DEATH. Several criticisms have been published upon the action of the County Physicians in. the post mortem upon Maggie MoGurn. It has been in timated that the examination was only superficial and did not warrant the deductions drawn and testified to before the Coroner. When the inquest was held only partial examination had. been made for lack of time, but the complete examination sine nnisneq nas sus- ,iiumI tl,A fl wlnj.tinna ilnwn ruinl PliMinian Mover submits the following to correct the iu- . justice done him: - ... "Some little misapprehension exists in the public tnisd aa to tbe conduct of tha inquest in toe McUurn ease, and upon the post-mortem appearances aa expressed before the coroner's J mm j . ann Mimm vu Mtuiv VI row I,- -heated ia some recent editorial comment. ' At a matter of fact the examination waa not cursory er superficial; all the internal organs were carefully observed, and no lesions were found excepting intense redness of the stomarh and small intestine. This fact associated with the history of the case mjc.j... ... .......... i w . i taint? Uiat death was caused by some irritant poison. The stomach, with Its contents, waa removed for further examination, and to-day present all the appearances of intense Inflammation. The mucous membrane is of a dark brick red color, studded with I ravish aad erroded patches. Considerable blood waa mixed with the contents of the stomach, which amounted to one and one-half pints of fluid, containing large quantities of mucus aad a few small particles of food. Owing to the large amount of arsenic contained in the . stomach, it with .- its contents are aa well preserved aa on the day the stomach was remf ved. i No Quantitative analysis of the contents of ths stomach has been made, but the teats so far as4 plied show arsenic in large quantities, probably not less than thirty grains. Nearly tire grains of (crude) arsenioua acid, undissolved, were sepa4 rated by washing th more solid portions of the stomach. - i It is difficult to see how sny fair criticism can be raised regarding the method or the results of tbe post-mortem examination. Certainly,' if it should be shown that this is s ease of hutnktidal poiaoning, there weuld be no failure to convict be cause of any imperfection is the examination.- j LUJtOLD X.

' "Why not?" repeated Loftua. ."Well, TO toll yon why I object to the nam - If that horse was . ever to break loose from the traces and get away the entire ptfica force of the city would be unable to recapture him.

"I am the oldest spiritual bealer in the city," be said, "and hare been here thirty-fire years." Br permission he went to work on Jestrum, who had just before been cursing soma nialignsut spirits. With a few mesmeric passes he reduced the patient to perfect qnietuees, and presently to unoon-sciounaeNa. Then he called for seizors, snd took a lock of Jestrum's hair. He explained that by its aid he could will Jestrum to quietad at anv time and should frequently da so. Tb patient's family were greatly pleased at the result and left porfectly satiHtled.

Tbey go some very ornate certificates in green and gold, bearing big seals and the imprint of two languages, and paid f'. a month regularly. When thev had paid $100 they were to get a German bona for that amount good for its face. Th inducement to invest waa that it cost them nothing and th holders of th bonds had a chance iu a lottery with magnificent drawings. The holders finally became convinced that there waa nothing bnt a swindle in tha scheme. They say that more than three thoussnd such certificates as they hold have been issued in this country. Tbey have appealed to the Government authorities and yesterday to th State's Attorney.' bnt as the people are all ont of th Stat ther seems to be but lit tl chance of convicting them.

Tbe Eailroad and Warehouse Commissioners . Consider Etrik? Affairs Disaati flad Lumbermen. Eock Island Officials Await Jude Gresham's Decision with Some Trepidation Kotes. THE SITUATION. ' Ther la no change tn th affair of tha double-headed Burlington strike. Both en-ginemen and switchmen are resting on their oars, waiting, apparently, for a turn in th tid of railroad affair. At a lata hour last night th brakemen bad not goo ont, bnt grumbling of discontent ar heard from that body that presage more tronbl. No violence was displayed by any of th strikers. Trouble was expected at the Stock Yards, bnt it failed to materialize and the Burlington yard were a quiet a a country chnrch yard. Passenger train were received and dispatched aa usual, bnt freight traffic, was trifling compared to tha customary amount of this branch of business. One train of stock waa received aad about forty cars of perlshabl freight arrived. Forty awitchmea are now working for th Burlington Boad in Chicago, and it is claimed that thia number will be augmented to eighty or 100 in a few days. As the - switchmen claim to hav quit work individually, their reasons for thia action may be aa various aatlie anon ar numerous. Ten or a dozen who war spoken to agreed in saying that no other oauae need be looked for than the danger tbey were exposed to from tha carelessueaa of th new engioenien. Both awitchmea and enginemen united in denying tb report that the vanon orders of railroad employes were to coalesce. "You can a easily mix water, quicksilver, and oil," aaid a grizzled old yard master Testerdsy, "a to eombme in on family nginemen,awitcn- snon, and brake men." DIRECTORS HEARD FROM. It haa been claimed by thajrtriksrs sinoe tb beginning oftbo difficulty between tbe Burlington Boad and its employe that th management of that railroad would not be upheld in It g-gresairs course by tha owners and director of th road Chief Arthur ha claimed from tha first that tb Burlington Boad waa Buffering such tremendous flm""t loan that Messrs, Perkins and Ston would be forced by their backer to make epeedy term with their 1 men. That this - hope is delusion, is proved by th following telegram received at th Burlington's office yesterday fcfteraoon: , Bostow, Mass.. March 17. C X. Perkins, President C. B and Q. B. R. Company. Chicago: Tb board of directors bar Just passed tha following resolution: K'KotrH, That tha board nasnlmonsly approve of tho President' course dsrint the late strike, snd con aider that it is their duty to offer a steady resistasca, regardless of consequences, to anr at tempt so tass tne maaageaiens uk ins rosa uvui the hands of its owners. J. If. FOBBES, Chairman. The receipt of this massage was the probable causa of Mr. Paul Morton's high good humor at his regular afternoon lave yesterday. "The officers of tha Burlington Koiad," said ha on this occasion, know what tney are abont If tb men who hav left a imasiaed that they oonkl foment internal disaentioa among those interested ia tha Burlington Boad they will find thev war mistaken. Tb action of tbe officer has been taken with a view to tbe well-being of tha road- and for no other purpose. Thia fact ia recognized by tha owner of th Burlington system, who ar bard beaded business men that are saUaSed to accept sosse anno vane ia the pros at for the sake of future prosperity. Thia telegram ia tho best piece of new 1 hav to give yon to-day," con tinued Mr. Morton. Our freight business ia still badly incommoded, although wa are making progreue, Wa are receiving ail freight that is offered, and sent out ninety-aix cars to-day. We have now a fores of abont forty switchmen in tha Chicago yard. That include twenty-fir new handSL tha balanco beins- composed ot freight conductor who are switching temporarily. We expect to fill our rank by not later than next Saturday. Our yards are well guarded and wa will protect our men. I expect no trouble, but wa intend to b prepared for anything. The switchman aimed their blow at tha new netnemon rather than at too Burlington fiosd. As ws ar bound to protect those man wa suffer more than they do, but they understand tho real meaning of the switch men's strike and appreciate our efforts to protect them. Our new hands are good hands noo better. If thev srr at all. it is on tho aide of ovcr-carofulnesa. It ia a fact that in th past fonr weeks we hav bad fewer accident than have occurred during th asms length of time at any period in tne history of tb road. That's a pretty good showing for inexperienoed men.' Mat it? There are plenty more of the name kind to be had if . any on need tnem. If w can make thia allow ing with non-union engineer . w can surely do a well with non-union switchmen. Th former hav long been considered the highest clssa of skilled labor, and this is always scarce, while the latter require bnt - little mora experience than is necessary to turn out a good oraaeman. l do not tninn that any mora vt ur meu will leave us. It they do be thoy brake- men, conductors, section hand, or wuat not we will continue on th ven tenor ot our way, aad fill thair place aa rapidly aa possible. M DOUBTED AT BOSTON.

A meeting took place yesterday afternoon at tha office of the Michigan' Lumber Company, to consider tb action of the Chicago, Bock, Island and Pacific, the Chicago and Northwestern,' and tha Chicago, Milwaukee and 8k Paul Railroads in refusing to deliver their own cars to and declining to receive their own .ears .from Jha Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, in direct conflict with the interstate oommero law and to th great detriment of tho local lumber trade.

Fleming, a K. Martin, D. a Pate, Francis Beidler, nod J. B. Thompson. As a result of their communion th following resolution was drawn up. and will be presented at a meeting to be called to-morrow at 2 o'clock: JfrflocMf, That the vaat interests of th lumber buaineaa are being crippled by the actios of said roads, aad if auch course ia continued, ia likely to result tn th diversion of aaid lumber trad from this city not only for ths present but the future. We urge and implore said roads to immediately change this diaaalrou policy. In a talk concerning thia matter, arepresenta-tive of one of the leading lumber firms ssid yesterday: "The railroad companies refuse to handle consignments of lumber to lumbermen in the district, that is, such lumber as is lving on th "Q" tracks. They refuse also to take cars that happen to bo loaded on the "Q" tracks with lumber. The Michigan Lumber Company has had car loaded with lumber on tha tracks since hut February. Another concern has twenty cars lying on the Chicago. Milwaukee and t Paul tracks, care of the "O." to tbe concern, for the last three weeks, aud they refuse to hand I o them on tbe ploa that it is consigned to ths "O,'' Boad. Lumber values are depreciatintr each day, and the losses to the large wholesale firms hsve been verv buys.

Several firms have brought suit against th roads, but the issues involved cannot be decided in a moment In refusing to deliver all the roads simply say that they are helpless and can not avert th tr.ke. , THE BURLINGTON ARRAIGNED. Th State Board of Railway and Warehouse Commissioners bold a socret session yesterday. The board, which ia composed of Mr. B. F. Marsh, Mr. Jason Rogers, and General Rinaker was called to Chicago to eonsider the complaint of a number . of tha citizen of Aurora against th management of the Burlington Road. It wa claimed by th com mittee who had come from Aurora to attend th meeting that-' a number of th now enginemen running on th Burling ton lin were so grossly incompetent that all persona traveling on train run by them wer in great danger of suffering kws of life or other bodily harm, Several Instance war quoted of accidents that might hav proved fatal tnreugh tha heedlessness or ignorance of "Q," engineers. The representations of the country delegate wore upneia and auooa to Dy three or rour ot tbe local strikers. Tbe Burlington. through its attorney, vigorously negatived imuumii ui uie Aurora yeopie. ana it wsa finally agreed that tha meeting adjourn for a week to give both stdoa an opportunity to pre- yiw uuur vuieuoe, . -. THEY ARE WAITING. Tbe Rock Island people say there is absolutely nothing new in regard to their relations with tha Burlington Boad. A prominent official , of tha Bock Island Boad aaid yesterday: ' "Our engineers srs handling bo Burlington freight They will pull no "Q' ' ear either on our track or on those of the Burlington. They bar changed their attitude In this, as they formerly handled a little Burlington stuff, but now thev will not touch anything with th "Q"' Libel Wa are now waiting to hear from Judge Graaham and tbe Burlington Boad, and will make no change in our method of running until we do," , . TO DISSEMINATE WEALTH. Chief Arthur bad nothing to offer last night, bnt Mr. Hoge aaid: "The great original twenty fonr who compose the Burlington grievance committee will b in town to-morrow, I, a Chairman, bar called them her to determine on some course by which the men may be paid. Chief Kargent started West a few dsvs ago with a boodl to supply tb want of the firemen, and I wish to make soma arrangement wberebv tb engineer can be supplied with tha needful in a fair and equitable manner. No, wa don't mean to give and of our cash to the awitchmea. They must attend to their own wants.' GAY GRADUATES. CHICAGO DENTAL, The annual oommanoamant exercises of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery were held yesterday afternoon in tha Grand Ooora House, when graduates to tbe number of forty-four wore awarded their well-earned diplomas. .
