Last evening about 6 o'clock, George, the six year old noo of Mr. and Mrs. John Greenwald, of No. 238 Main street, was playing on the road with several other children opposite John Koch's place. They were running back and forward across the street. A hack drawn by two powerful horses dashed down the street.

The head of one horse struck and knocked him down, and one of the heavy vehicle passed over his body in the vicinity of the back and spine.

It was thought that the boy had been crushed internally and would die in a short time. Dr. Kitto was called and after making a thorough examination found that no bones were broken, but that the lad was badly bruised about the head, face and lody and hurt Internally. Just how bad the injuries are cannot be told for a day or two, or whether they are fatal or not. The driver of the hack, when he ran the boy down, never stopped to ascertain whether the lad had been killed or not, and his name was not ascertained. CELEBRATED COW CASE. Derided in the Circuit Court Against William Tapfing. The case of William Tapling against Simou Johnson was tried iu the circuit court yesterday and at 5 o'clock last eveu- ing the jury brought in a verdict for the defendant.

At a Second Ward lomieile Antirs of a Drunken Son. Terror reigned iu a second ward residence for about t wo honrs at an early hour this morning all ou account of a son appearing at his home crazy drunk. He went iu yelling that he would kill the whole family, Iu less time than it fakes to tell the whole family was out of bed and to say that they were frightened would not half express it. They found the son in the sitting room with a wagon spoke iu his hands and he was preparing to smash any and every thin in sight in his drunken frenzy.' When he spied his father aud brother in the door way be let the weapon tly at tbem and bad it struck them there would have been a corpse. Then they diopped upon him and there was a desperate struggle. The drunken son fought like a young demon and the tight lasted fifteeu or twenty min utes. The drunken man was overpowered and put to bed and although he raved and swore considerably, went to sleep and no doubt to-day-he will feel feel like hiding his head in shame. MAT1UM0NIAL.

Tnight the mayor, ineiulera of the council and school Ixxvrd, will meet at the City hall for the purpose of talking over the question ol raising that fs,IKH)j for school purposes, strange as it may seem some of the city members of the county Itoard are opposed to raising the amount. This does not look well and is not a credit to any man to work against the educational interests of our city. Wife No. 3 is Insane. Mrs. Lange, the third wife of Gustave Lange, has become insane, aud is making it lively for the people who live near her place on Douglas ave. This morning a minister appeared at the sheriff's office and said that the woman had gone stark mad and that the people were afraid she would kill some one and wanted an officer to take care of her. Application will be made for the appointment of physicians to examine into her mental condition. A Sensation.

Brodsky's Views on the . . Koch Claim. FROM PERSONAL OBSERVATION. Valuable and Interesting Points on the Impor- tint Matter. To-day the Jot'SNAL reporter interviewed Dr. F. A. Brodsky on the all absorbing subject, Dr. Koch's new cure for consumption. The Dr. said: The subject upou which you ask my opinion has been so thoroughly discussed from hearsay that my personal observation of the technic of inoculation and subsequently witnessing several cae of cure at Prof. Von Bergmann's Clinic in Berlin a few weeks ago, only substantiates Prof. R. Koch's claim, that of discovering a specific antidote or remedy (the Paratoloid Lymph if properly applied in early stagee) combats the viability, destructive influence and phenomena depending upou the pre ence of the Tubercle bacillis in a circum scribed area. His delay in publishing the constituents of his remedy (its simplicity will be surprising) depends I believe on his desire to give the Government and his country, which supports such extensive means for investigation, the honor and credit in giving humanity reliable, snfTTcient aud unimpeachable quantity and qual lty of the material at a certain time. It will be possible then for physicians who can make a diaguosis of the early stages of tuberculosis by microscopical technology to advise their patients the proper treatment,' or if they have received scientific training in bacteriology, can apply the treatment themselves in conjunction with raising the vitalizing, powers of the patient. The Prof, expects after longer experience we can in a measure aflect general tuberculosis, by using all preventive means for dissemination of the virus, which often finds prolific modus in sometimes comparatively good constitutions and destroys different branches of families, because of their susceptibility, of acquiring certain morbific elements. Of one thiug we mnst be certain and that is that this discovery opens a great field for argument, and a deeper study of the phraseology of the disease which has created so great an interest for the welfare of humanity. SOCIAL AND TEKSONAL. One of the most pleasant drive whist parties of the year was tendered last evening by Mr. and Mrs. William 11 Hall, at their home No. 943 Washington avenue. The interior of the home was decorated and bril-liautly illuminated aud there were seventeen tables. The playing was spirited and exciting. The prizes were won by Mrs. P. P. Chandler and Mr. J. C.

Saves a'Compaay 600 aad Valaable rapera. Nearly every resident on j Washington avenue will remember William B&sdndale or "Billy" as he is familiarly known. lie left here a few'years ago and drifted to various sections of the country. ( : Finally he settled at Seattle, Washington and is at present manager of the Northern Pacific freight office. In that capacity he often remains at the office until 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning and handles large sums'of money. Recently he had a thrilling experience at that place and his nerve saved the company from losing several hundred dollars aud also himself valuables. He had been at the office until 3 o'clock iu the'morning attending to the unloading of several boats and when be started for his boarding house had six hundred dollars and valuable papers in his pocket, the property of the company. On the way he was stopjed by a couple of highwaymen. One of th m shoved a revolver under Billy's nose at.d demanded that he disgorge, tuick as a ttash Billy kicked the fellow in the stomach and started oh a run, yelling police. An officer happened to be near by aud heard the call, and as he came in sight the thieves were close upon Billy. It is needless to say the highwaymen fled and disappeared in the darkness. They were subsequently caught, however, and the Seattle papers contain a column or more of the thrilling affair, i ; ' AtH'bfcUKXIS. i ' l'KIXCK AN"I PAVPEK. An elaborate production will be that oi the Prince and Pauper nt Belle City opera house this evening and which is a dramatization of Mark Twain's story of the same name.

Little Miss Ieslie will be surrounded by a most excellent company, and the presentation of the play w ilt lie on an unusual scale of magnificence, j The production is the same as was given at the llrond-way thenter, NewYork. j Little Elsie has been upon the stage about five years, and is spoken of as remarkably apt in her work, and so thoroughly imbued-wfth the impor tance of her dutiesiupon th stage that no outside thought or, influence can for a nio- meut sway her in her attention to them She is all business when at work. mVakthy's misiiaps. McCarthy's Mishaps, a new farcical com edy, had its first presentation in this city last evening at the Belle City opera house.

WIND AND BUNCOMBE Ho-flr Alderman Colbert Mada the Council Believe Certain Things. 1 AND KILLED A RESOLUTION Which was in Favor of a New Hook and Udder Truck. The other evening at a Council meeting Alderman Colbert said that the Council could not afford to pass a resolution condemning the old hook and ladder truck and asking for a new one. He allowed that the Underwriters would not pay the two per cent, on all premiums aud made all manner of statements in order to defeat the resolution. His talk was all wind and buncombe, but the majority of members of ot the city council, as is generally the case. swallowed his remarks, with the hook, bait and all, and the resolution was tabled esterday a prominent member of the Un derwriters said to the reporter that it was all bosh. Had the resolution been passed it would not have made the slightest differ ence in regard to the payment of the rate, The Underwriters know full well that the truck is in a dangerous condition and in fact do not have to get pointers from the city council as to the condition of the appa ratus ol the fire department. If the truck should break down to-day or to-morrow and it took several weeks to get a new one the Underwriters would not reduce the per cent on premiums. There is not the slight est danger. If the truck was condemned" it conld be used until a tnew one was ob tained. So it will be seeuthat Mr. Colbert was simply talking to win bis point aud he did iu What the city council needs is an alderman or two who cau meet the gentle man from the Fourth in aiguments of a bulldozing nature. With j him every ini provement or good3 thing that comes up iu the council, un'ess offered! by himself, is wind or buncombe. Popularity of Electric Motors. The rapidity with which the electric mo tor is forcing its way into all sorts of places. and notably into private : houses,' "is little short of marvelous. An instance of the way in which the handy little machine insists on recognition is the case of a fashionable Brooklyn hotel, which not long ago ordered a small motor for running an exhaust fan. Soon after it Was found expedient to use another small motor for running a knife-scouring machine. Following on this came an order for a four-horse power motor for washing dishes, and immediately after a ten-horse power motor was pnf in for the purpose of running the w hole laundry of the hotel. The new machines were found so quiet in rnnning and so clean and effective in their work that everything in the hotel that was formerly doiie by the steam engine is now done by the electric motor. Lott A Party. Minneapolis Tribune: One of the curious results of the recent tidal wave is the utter annihilation of the Prohibition iarty as a National organization. Such candidates as have leen nominated by that party this fall were ignored during the campaign and have tteen overlooked in the footing np of the returns. What was once an aggressive and growing organization has disappeared from view in one short summer, aud prohibition is not likely to arise agaiu except as it is taken np here and there as plank in a State platform where popular sentiment in favor of that method of regulating the litjuor traftic may be strong enough to compel recognition. $10 for oue of those nobby I '.lack Cheviot all wool suits atS.

But now it is too late. We have got the trade and we are going to keep it by selling just as wehaveinthe past, LOWER than the LOWEST. We have' bought our goods in large quantities cheap for cash and can afford and will undersell any house in the city. We don't have any BAITS, but intend to do a STRAIGHT BUS IN ESS. We will lead on prices, others may follow if they wish to.
