THE NEW SHOOTING-CLUB, which has for some weeks past been under process of organization, has so far progressed and completed the financial arrangements that THE TILIB.. eNE feels justified in giving information concerning them which has been kept back on account of its dissemination being a possible detriment to Its prospects atectinge base been held almost weekly by those interested in the project.

The stock was placed at ta0 per share, and fifty -hares were voted and taken. The annual dues were fixed at $5. With the money realized from tee sale of stock the purchase of a tract of land in Lip:Haus was agreed upon. eaturday last the Board of Managers went down to Davis Station, a point about ti5 mile, from this City on the Kankakee Line, where some of "toe boys" were wont to do same tall hunting, and purchased a tract of 250 acres. It has a frontage on the Kankakee River of about one mile anti a half, and is excellent ground for all the varieties of game in that section. The surrounding country is known as the Kankakee marsh, and is a great place for duck and goose, and the river aeounds in fish. About one nule from the tract in titieouon is the club- house of the Pittsburg Club. and Lot far away is the Fort Wayne Clue.

When all shall have been made ready, an "opening" will be given, It is expected that the event will occur about the 1st of May. THEY WANT THEIR MONET. Mention was made the Other day of the fact that some of the clerks in the employ of the Chicago branch of the bogus commercial agency of Fouse, liershberg ea Co., of New Yore. had attached the - furniture in the office in order to secure the payment of the money owing to them by their employers. Since that mention was made, the goods have been removed by the persons who attached them, and to-morrow the case will come up before Justice Meech, the plaintiffs wishing to get judgment, so ;hat the goods may be sold and their dame (amounting to about $100) may be satisfied. Those employes insist that the management of the concern was a swindle,- not only so far as the New York persons were concerned, but also as regards most of those who ran the Chituago branch. They allege that their immediate employers, although having the money in their pocket with which to pay just dailies against teem. declined to do so. Other clerksthere were nine in all in the officehave not been paid, and some of them, it is alleged, have been reduced to great destitution thereby. one of them having h ad to pawn his clothes for a meal. and another to apply to the County Agent for relief for his lanzol,y. It, Is also alleged that a number of merchants have been swindled by the collection of the sui ascriptions made by them. In some cases peraot se who bad subscribed were notified by the emplol. va that they were being swindled and declined to oay in other cases notices were not given, and the merchants did pay for something which watt utterly Yaluelese.

Tile room was ailed with members with their wives, the attraction being a lecture by Gen. W. E. Strong, of this ci ty, upon the "Storming and Capture of Fort Mc.1.111ster."

The Christian Or hypocritical) 'press of the West, and of the country for that matter, bas a weakness for swindles; it likes to promote them and to sell them editorial indorsements. This tendency is so noticeable that the swindles may now be said to live by the aid of the hypocritical press, and the swindlers use hardly any other medium of advertislug than the Christian Advocates and like publications, for the same reason that the worst class of confidence men in New York have crowded into the Bible House, and the most suspicious advertisements that are printed have at the bottom, "Address Room , Bible House." ' The snide jewelry men have always been the especial pets of the hypocritical press, and the latest form of swindlethe casket dodgewas welcomed by it with enthusiasm, because the profits were so large that there was a great margin for advertising, and thus the cause was advanced by liberal contribntions which the swindlers gave to these self-asserted organs. At the bottom of many of the C39- keg ads may be found this line. which indicates the connection with the swindlers: An honorable house, entitled to the confidence of their pstrons.Christian Advocate. The casket dodge has not until lately been tried in this city to any consideranle extent, but the success of a Cincinnati firm in that line induced a man named George G. Jacoby, who had been in Milwaukee, to move here and start in. lie advertised Pretty liberally in the country press, stating taut he would send his " ROYAL GOLDEN CASKET" for 81. and that it contained nine articles " warranted to be of the tinest gold-plate," and " put np in a morocco casket." As a part of the advertisement was a dreadful cut of some articles of jewerly. A subscriber of Tux TRIBUNE, appreciating its efforts to put down swindling. sent his dollar for tae Royal Goiden Casket, and, on receiving' it, forwarded it to this office with his compliments. On being subjected to scrutiny, the "morocco casket " turned out to be tee commonest kind of a pasteboard box about 4xi inches and an inch deep, without even a smell of leatherlet alone moroccoabout it. In it were huddled nine of the most extraord!nary articles known to mod- ern art. A reporter looked at them in blank amazement for a few moments, and then taok them to a competent dealer in jewelry and besougat hint to put a price upon them. The dealer looked aston!shed at the lay-out, and said that it was far ahead of anything that be had ever seen. "I have," said he, "sold some cheap jewelry in my time, bat I never saw anything like that before. Price it? Why, certainly, I can tell you what such stuff costs, if that's all you want to know. This," continued he, taking up the "Fine Land Ring, ' which was a small brass circlet, in- distinctly stamped with the word Friendship," and roughly finished, "this is worth 84 a gross at a fair price. ' "Four dollars a what?" said the reporter, "you mean dozen?" No, 1 mean gross-84 a gross." "And this," said the reporter, picking up the "Beautiful beat Ring," which was a bit of white glass pasted on a bit of black glass, and the whole surrounded with the common brass of the country. " About the same as the oilier-444 a gross. It may possibly have cost $6 a gross." "And these?" said the reporter, holding oat the "Pair Engraved Steeve-Buttons," which were two thin bits of common brass stamped out and joined to some smaller tuts of ihe same material" One dollar and fifty cents a gross." " And these?" continued the reporter, holding out the " 'Set Spiral Engraved Studs," which were bits of crooked wire soldered to oval bits of thin brass. "About S1 a gross." " And this?' continued the reporter, handing up the "Scarf-pin Set with Cameo," which was merely a bit of black glass stamped with a female form and attached to a brass pin. About 81.50 her gross." "And this?" continued the questioner, dishing me the "Grand Collar-Button, " which was the most dismal piece of brass on record. Oh, about 50 cents a gross." "And these" continued the possessor of the goods, letcning out the " Ladies' Set, Pin and Ear-rings," the best article in the lot. " Those are a much better grade of goods; they are worth 82.50 a dozen." The attempt to get a price on the "Grand Roman Neck-Chain and the "Locket Set with Cameo" was a failure. Toe articles were so appalling in their appearance. so crude and rough in their build, that no one in the store would venture a guess. At another store the owner fixed the Price at 83 per gross for the chain and II per gross for the locket. They were, by odds, the worst thines in the lot, their only redeeming feature being that there Were some copper links on the chain to take ff the monotony of the brass. The locket was not a locket at all, but only two pieces of black glass cemented together, and the whole stuck on an iron plate. TAKEN AS A wnoLE, the character uf the assortment beggars description. Most of Vie articles bore the t3 n le relation to real jewelry th;kt the infant's toy watch does to bis father's timek.l.eper. They were mere burlesques. stamped mu, sheet brass by machinery, -and often rough and ragged. In order to get at the cost of the articles contained in the Royal Casket, the reporter carefully -figured at the prices in cents and fractious of cents, - and submits them below: Ladies' set pin and earrinet at $30 per groes....$0.20.S3 ' Beautiful Setti Tirifir at $4 per gross. 2.77 Fine hand ring at 4 per gros. -... 2.77 Grand Roman neckchain at $3 per grosa 2. t ni Pair engraved sleeve-buttons at $1.50 per gross 1.04 Scarf pin set with cameo at 1.5o per gross. 1.104 Locket tket with cameo at I per gross. -ft) Set spiral engraved studs at $1 per gross ..bV Grand collar button at 50 cents per gross .34 Total cost nine articles. $O. 32.25 Or 32i cents--Mr. Jacoby's estimate on the above is $5--so he states in his advertisement In selling this assortment at $1 Mr. Jacoby makes a little over 200 per cent. While there cannot be any objection to any merchant making whatever profit people are willing to pay, still he should rememoer that misrepresentations as to the character of goods (say. for instance, calling brass the finest gold plate," and a paste-board box a "morocco casket") have names attached to them in the Crinunal Code. It is sufficient to say of the Royal Golden Casket that the people who want jewelry had better go to their local &miens. or else send to some respect--able city house. The sum of money spent in the casket is entirely wasted. unless the buyer happens to live in a town populated by idiots to whom he can trade the goods. On reading over Mr. Jacoby's Catalogue, which he sends with the 'Royal Golden Casket, it seems -as if some of the prices given above to articles in the casket were too high. For instance, Jacoby .offers to send 864 collar-buttons. sleeve-buttons, atuus, rings. bins, etc.. for $10, which would be about one cent each. The casket business is carried on in Cincinnati by the hteman Jewelry Company, which sends anout the same assortment for $1 as Jacoby does. If the goods are of the same character as .Jacoby', the business is an extremely profitable onefor them. THE WEST PARKS. SPENDING SOME MORE MONET. The West-Side Park Commiesioners met in epecial seesion at 9 o'clock yesterday morning at their office, Halsted and West Washington streets. There were present Messrs. Lipe (Chairman), Millard (Secretary), McCrea, Holden, Maus, Woodard, and Bennett. Mr. Holden, from the Finance Committee, pre - eented a report signed by himself and Lipe. The Committee recommended that the reports of the President, Secretary. Treasurer, Auditor, and Finance Committee be printed in the annual report. In order that the material for a fight might not be wanting, they recommended also that the legal documents connected with the " removal proceedings," and a history of the proceedings compiled by one Thomas J. Suddard, Assistant-Secretary of the Board, should be bound up with the report and made a part of it. In reply to Mr. McCrea, the Secretary said that the report would consist, including everything, of 105 pages. The cost would be SI per pace except on 14 pages of tables. which would cost $3.80 per page. Mr. McCrea said this was new matter, and ha never been referred to the Finance Committee. Mr. Holden said that the purport of the report was to furnish the people with information. The reports of the Chairman, Secretary. etc., were all right. as far as they went,. but it was of vital Importance that the citizens of West Chicago should know all about the history of the Board, and the legal proceedings connected therewith during the past year. Mr. iMillard said that, as Mr. Suddard knew all about the workings of the Board, he bad prepared the history, instead of Mr. Bonney, counsel to the Board. Mr. McCrea said be was suspicions of anything which the proper authority was ashamed to sign. Mr. Millard repeated that they thought both sides should have a show. Mr. Bennett wanted to know bow the report tame from the Finance Committee. and when it was referred to that body. Was it a history of the legal transactions of the Board during the year, and therefore valuable as history? so far as be could see. it was Only the story of the removal proceedings, which miglat be important to individuals but certainly not to the public. Messrs. Millard and Lipe both owned up that the document had never been properly referred; in fact, that it had never been before the Board at all. Mr. Holden was surprised at tee gentleman. A fight bad been made on the members of the Board eimply because they tried to ferret out rascality. The taxpayers were greatly interested in learning the truth about this matter. It seemed to be the endeavor of Mr. Bennett to stifle the investigation. and be could see the scheme cropping out. Mr. Bennett did not believe there was a word in the document tending to ezoosie any rascality or villainy on any persons part. If the gentleman (Holden) Intimated Mat he knew anything of any mw,mommtmN,, . 4 a 'flIE CIIICÄGO TRIBnNL: TUESDAY. MARCH 5, 178. rascality. that eentleman steted wnat was not true. Ile demanded proofs. Mr. Holden handed over a eeries of proof-slips of Mr. Suddardes history. "The proof is there," Bald he. Mr. Bennett demanded that Holden should read the document or else go back into his hole. Mr. Millard said the paper was intended as a preamble to the legal proceedings. It was prepareel by Mr. Suddard, and had jiist been given in by that gentleman. Mr. Woodard would not object to the publication if the opinions of the lawyers on hoth oides were given. Besides. the case was already before the people through the press, and there was no occasion for further expenses. The document preeented was not prepared by Mr. Bonney, connect to the Board, who got $3.000 a year for doing the legal work, but by .Mr. Sucidard, their own Assistant Secretary. Mr. Bennett moved to strike out that portion of the report previding for the printing of the so-called legal documents. Mr. Woodard wanted to know what was the use of publishine the opinions of an Assistant Secretary on the recent imbroglio. Ile reviewed the document, and claimed that it was a mere rehash of the Secretary's report, and that every move in the tight between the two factions was already known to the public through the medium of he press. He ejected to anything which looked iike a conoemnation of the Governor pending the settlement of this case by the hignest legal tribunal. After some further parley. the amendment of Mr. Bennett was put. and lost by a vote of 4 to 3, Lipe, Maus, Millard, and Hoiden voting in the majority. A similar vote settled the fate of Mr. aVoodard's amendment providiug that Suddard's ex-parte statement should not be printed. The Board then. by a vote of 4 to 3, as before, decided to print the entire outet, and promptly adjourned. len. Joliet BRENOCK. the newly-appointed member of the West Park Board, bad not received his commission last evening when a reporter called to see him at his residence, corner of Lyele street and McAllister place. Ile stated, however, that he had beard on good autuority during the day that the doeument Mu been addressed to him at the office of the Board, and he had called thee about 4 o'clock to get posseseion of the same. The office was closed, however, and he did not get it. Ile will pus in an appearance this morning, secure his commission, Set no his bond, and probably have it approved during tne nay. At the next meeting of the Board he will present his credentials and formally demand his seat. He will be accouipanied by Gen. George W. Smith, who will have a legal library under each arm, ana whose formidable appearance, thus equipped. ought, if anything could, to awe the refractory Holden into suezniesion. What will be done in case the great Amer. lean sticking-plaster refuses to be awed into stepping down arid out, Mr. brenock was unable to say, but he remarked that the matter was in the hands of Gen. Smith, his attorney, who would no doubt advise him as to the best course to take. There had been an effort km the part of the legal adviser of Holden et al. to induce the minority to let the quesVon go to the Supreme Court wee.' it considers J utile!. Mc. Allistees late decision. but no such compromise could be entertained for a moment. True little tue would have to stend on its own bottom, so to speak, and be decided independent of every other consideration. Would quo warranto proceedings be instituted before the Attorney General? Well, Mr. Brenock oid not know; be bee supreme coneeence in Gen. Smith, to whom the legal questions had been left Of one thing he was sure: he should not give up this time as he did before, but proposed to fight tne thing Out for principle's sake. and because the taxpayers of the West Side demanded a change in tnat Board, and were everlastingiy opposed to this outrageone salary-grab on the part of the majority. He did not care for the dice, having never e it or any otner. lie had never even seen Gov. Cullom, mei would not think of laying claim to a seat in the Board were it not for this demand of the taxpayers for relief from their burdens. kind tie heard it stated that Mr. McCrea would, In his position as County-Treasurer nail holder of the Board's purseedrings, refuse to pay over any money on the demands of the salary-gradbees? Weil, yes. be hall heard of that. and could see that there would be two sides to the question if Holden persisted in his claim. But he did not think anybody in the majority would make much of a fight except Millard, who would hold on to the proepect of getting that eg, 500 salary as long as life and hope remaiued. Just what the stems would be he could not say, but be felt he was right; that the Governor was superior to the West Park Beare; that Holden's term had expired, and that be, by the appointment of the Governor, was entitled to a seat iu that Board, winch he would seek to obtain by all peaceble means. Failing in that, he would try what virtue there was in something else. --...-- THE POOL-BOX BOARD. THINGS WERE NOT ALTOGETHER LOVELY YESTERDAY on the Pool-Box Board of Trade, or "Public-Produce Exchange," as its managers have baptized IL There was much growling and discontent en the part of the scalpers and dizzy operators, who occasionally bet on a "thousand" and call it trailing. On the opening of the Board" they found the following notice on the bulletin-board: One cent per bushel will be required as margin during this day. No additional margin less than live cents per bushel will be received. 't ne same will carry trades over. Commission on all trades one-quarter cent per bushel. On all transactions made under the rules of this Exchange. the property bought or sold will be received or delivered on maturity of contract. Limit today 1 otio -oushele. W. C. LINcoLN, Manager. "Here," they said to themselves. " is a nice little game of freeze-out. We have been getting the best of the box for some time, and now they have changed the deal on us. It's downright robbery, and we won't stand it." And the great bulk of the operators didn't stand IL They didn't do any trading, but lounged around the "ticker," and indulged in aerial speculations as to what they might have made if they only had that other $100 to margin no. During the day it became noised about the street that the "pool-box" was in hard luck, that several of the stockholders had sold out, and thoee who were unfortunate enough to remain contemplated closing up the thins. A Tin Brut reporter investigated and found that there was some ground for the rumor, but, in the passage from mouth to mouth, it had been greatly exaegerated. He discovered that the business of the past five weeks, as a wnole, had not achieved any profit. In fact, it had been done at a loss, for the reason that the earns on the winning trades had not been eeldent to meet the expenses. About ten days ago Clem Perioiat, or, as he says, an intimate friend for whom he was acting, and who owned $10.000 worth of stock, sold out to Dan Loring, who, it is stated on the street fly parties claiming to know, represents Billy Clapp. This alteration in proprietorship necessitated some changes in the personnel of the Mee. and Geonte Brine retired in favor of a gentleman named Pope, who looks after the Loring-Clapp Interest. Lawrence & Martin still retain their interest, whice is said to be e15,000. ' Why have you raised the commission?" said the reporter to Mr. Lincoln, the manaeer. "Because we could not make it pay at oneeiehth of a cent. During the past five weeks we have figured on it in every possible suape, and failed to make anything but a loss." "Why?" "The market has been subjected to large fluctuations, and the operators have acted like a flock of sheep. The war news in its effects on values was too easily guessed. There was no opportunity for much difference of opinion. In fact it was concurrent action either way. We had to stand and take it. As long as we kept our windows open we were obliged to take all trades that came, and they all came one way. Some days we lost quite heavily." 'Do you contemplate closing up, as is rumored on the street?" " .N0, sir; we propose to run ta long as any business is offered. We have sufficient capital to run this thing just as long as the First National Bank will run." - "There's considerable kicking on the part of the operators?" "Yes, I know there is. but they'll come in. They can't get their business done for less on the Boar.' Here they can stand right by the ticker' and Pee it for themselves. The contracts are simple, and can be speedily closed out whenever the holders desire." One operator, who acted as if he was frozen out, declared the new deal to be a cussed shame, and ventured the opinion that the boys would quit, for the reason that gambling speculators didn't know anything about legitimate dealing. and couldn't run that kind of business. The distinction is a very amusing one. seeing that there is very little, if any. difference between betting on the " ticker " with a pool-box attachment and stacking chips on a card which proves to be a "split," and g,ves half the bet to the banker. LOCAL POLITICS. THB WEST TOWN. West Town politics are just now a little mixed, and to some degree exciting. It le well knows in that section of the city that Collector John Hoffman will retire this spring, and he doe8 not deetre a re-election, because he believes that after a man bas held so important a trust for two years that it should be turned over to another. Besides, the matter of giving the bond is no small item, and Mr. Hoffman thinks that some one else should take hold. To his credit it can be said that he has turned over all hie collections promptly every week. and the balances have been very small which have remained in his bands over Saturday night. The strife for the town offices will be a hard one. As is toe custom every spring, the bummer element is rising to the surface. this time in a new phase. The veteran leechers remain in the background, so to speak, but they are attempting to above apparent respectability to the front through the means of star-chamber caucuses. Commisioner Meyers' hangers on are at work t hit; time. They are organizing party for him. Lust Saturday night a man known as Thomas S. Parker, said to be a resident of the Eleventh Ward, called a coterie of his friends together in the rear of a saloon at No. 119 South Halsted street, where a free lunch and a town ticket were laid out together. Those present came by invitation. Then and there some combinations were intended to be perfected, such tie the selection of Aldermen and Other officers. A town ticket wee made up as follows: Supervisor, Smith McCleavy ; Collector, Thomas S. Parker; Assessor, sick Mohr; Town Clerk, A. C. Ahrendt. Mr. McCleavy, who is mentioned for Supervisor, is a venerable resident of the Seventh Ward, who was at one time a liquor dealer in this city. He served in the Council as Alderman from the Second Ward in 1858. He is a nice old gentleman, bat his followers are merely holding him up as a blind. Then there is "bld Tom" Parker, la be is called. He lives in the Eleventh Ward. lie is stud to have no special Qualification, and lit seek ing an alliance with the lower Democratic element. r. Ahrendt resides in the Tenth Ward, and to a clerk in Recorder Brockway's. office. Ile refuses to sanction the caucus!. and disclaims all connecton with it, and says that his name was used without ant hority. Nick Mohr, who was named for Assessor. keeps a grocery store in .the Eighth Ward. When C. N. Bolden wall Tax-Commisaioner Nick was his chief clerk. Ile is said to be unpopular and unfitted for toe place. it was not intended that the caucus should get into the papers. It was proposed to set no the town delegates, and a list for each of the wards had already been prepared to be stuffed in at the primaries, if necessary. in order to carry the Convention. However, the present exposure may change matters a little. The Democrats in the West Townat least the leaderssay that tnere will not be a Democratic town ticket this year, because they want to help to elect good men. to far, not much opposition has been shown to the re-election of air. Julius Pedersen for Supervisor. For Collector. William Swiseler is talked of. Ile is a German, who carries on an oil and paint business On West Randolph street. For Assessor, James N. Clara, the present incumbent, will not have much opposition. His labors the past the years have given such general satisfaction that it is deemed unadviaable to change. In the West Town there. has been no tax-lighting since Mr. Clark has been Assessor, because he has endeavored to make fair valuations, and nearly all the taxpayers now make returns. For Tow Clerk, M. F. Taroell, the present incumbent, is a candidate, and also John Vanderpool. Jr.. of the Sixth Ward. These are all the candidates who have announced themselves thus far, but others may turn up when the Conventions meet. IIE ELEVENTH WARD REMBLICAN CLUB held a meeting last evening in Mtrtine's Hall, Ada street, near Madison. The attendance was large. The President, T. N. Bond, occupied the chair. Senator Riddle. Gen.

Dyer F. E. Spooner, S. C. Storer. J. M. Oliver, C. Ileper, Air. Carter. The report was adopted. Senator Riddle gave notice that at the next meeting he should move that the by-laws no so changed that an Executive Committee might be chosen from time to time, to consist of such numbers as the Club in its discretion might deem necessary, tout also that any oy-law might be suspended at any time by a majority vote. D. J. Avery moved that a candidate for Alder. man be nominated at the primary for the election of the Town Convention delegates. Tee motion was adopted. Clark Geib was called noon for a speech, and gave the audience an amusing entertainment. He said he was in favor of George B. Swift for Alderman. and Gen. Mann for Collector, and called the men who d:d not pay their taxes thieves. E. C. Cole and George B. Swift, catolidates for Alderman, made a few remarks. The Club then adjourned to meet again in a week. NOTES. D. J. Lyon says he is not a candidate for Alderman from the First Ward. D. C. Leach is a Democratic candidate for Alderman in the Fourth Ward. Ex- Aid. R. B. Stone denies that he is in the field, and says that the announcement was made without his authority. Mr. N 'Main H. Swift, of the Eleventh Ward, is Die Young Republicans' candidate to fill the seat Smut to be vacated by Aid. Throop. The regular monthly meeting of the Second Ware Republican Club was helu at No. 511 State street last evening., M. A. Farwell presiding. The reports of committees were callea for. but further time was asked aald granted. Some routine business was subsequently transacted, and the meeting adjourned for one week. At the next meeting a lively time is anticipated, as candidates for Aldermen are to be named. Aid. Rosenburg and Samuel Engle are regarded as the most tormidable candidates, and their friends will be out in force. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Perry H. Smith, Chair. man of the Cook County Democratic Central coolmittee, called a meeting or that body to gather at Room 28 Palmer House Saturday evening, at s o'clock. The City Central Committee will meet at the same time. The invitation Is also extended to about 200 other leading Democrats who are not members of the Committee. The Democratic League now claims to be a private club, and the Tainmanyites say that they are nothing else. The former propose to organize a body similar to the New York Manhattan Club, and ID make it very exclusive and select. The object of this meeting Saturday is to talk snout the time of holding the County Convention which will elect the delegates to the State Convention, which meets at spring-field next month. TUE SALOON-KEEPERS. THOMAS REPUDIATED. Yesterday afternoon a meeting of saloon-keepers was called to be held at No. 13 South Halsted street, over Aid. Baumgarten's feed-store, where a vacant loft ui situated. Somehow or other but few saloon-keepers responded, owing. no doubt, to the fact that a man named Edward Thomas was the chief-engineer of the concern. The aforementioned Edward Thomas is not a saloon-keeper. He Is a man who has had some unpleasant notoriety and free advertising around the Justice Courts in this City. His record hi, not the clearest, and recently he has been engaged in the delightful traffic of loaning money to hard-up saloon-keepers, and taking chattel mortgages upon their places. and buying licenses from broken-up saloon men, and transferring them to those who wanted to buy them. at full proportionate rates, charging liberally for ontainine the transfer. This business has recently been broken no by the Mayor. and hence Thomas' wrath. Now Thomas is not liked by the saloon-keepers of the Wtst Division, and is looked upon by them as an intermeddier. making that effort for his own personal aggrandizement. Thomas' ooject, as he stated to a TRIBUNs reporter, was to do the legal work for the saloonkeepersthat is. defend their suits and get the cash raised for that purpose. In that he was frustrated, because the respectable saloon-keepers presentand they were in the majoritysat down on him. About 3:30 o'clock Thomas rapped on a table and began A LONG. UNGRAMMATICAL SPEECH, In which he said that tne subject of the meeting was to tight the oppression of the Red-Ribbonites, who were prosecuting honest and respectable saloon-keepers. The next thing to do was to oppose the order of the Mayor, which prevented the transfer of licenses and musk of any kind 1st an. bone: also, to consider the matter of introducine the Moffatt bell-punch system. which was proposed. and whica would cost the saloonskeepees $I, 500, WO per year. He wanted them to organize and elect their own Aldermen, and thus protect themselves from injustice in the future. Thomas had a great hankering to preside at the meeting. and he called for a Chairman. The room was very vacant and very cold. and no one cared to acL Finally Mr. Louis Lesser was called upon, and he said that he was opposed to selling liquor to children and boys, but when a young man came into a saloon who looked like a man, they had no right to ask him his age, but should Pimply give kiln what he asked for. They were law-abiding citizens. and the saloon-keepers had no objections to living up to the law. What they wanted was to have conservative men elected to office. Neither temperance men nor drunkards were wanted. Let them look to the coming election, and see that their licenses and taxes were Pot thrown away. Ile wanted to support a fair and just Government. Mr. Lesser was then elected temporary Chairman. Thomas still tried to hold control, and was about to write a eeries of resolutions, a constitution. etc., when be was azain sat upon. but not effectually. A Secretary was wanted, anti no one desired to serve, but., after nearly an hour's logrolling upon Thomas' part, II. H. Benney wag selected. The latter was given Thomas' constitution to read, but, as he could not decipher it. t here was another delay. Thomas smiled. Sevend wanted to know where Thomas kept his saloon. Some called aim a shark. AnotherasKed him if he remembered the Countess of Pena, and if he ever recollected Milbank. Then some one tried to throw a bombshell in the camp by suggesting that they work in harmony with the North Side Association. The Chair tried to explain, but his replies were pecuilatly enigmatical. Finally he proposed to adjourn the meeting until 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon. Then there P'38 another hitch. Mr. Lynch asked Thomas if he was a saloonkeeper. The latter claimed to represent a saloonkeeper. and said that he had borne the expense of advertising and hirine the ball. John H. Heap then got up and wanted them to go te work and oreamze. He was called to the chair. Denney was re-elected Secretary. Mr. Kelly proposed to call tne bantling "The Cool( County Saloon-Keepers' Astociation." Peter Fortune was elected Treasurer, and James T. Kelly Temporary Treasurer until it was found out whether ittr. Fortune would accept. After appointing a commthee to wait upon the gentleman. the meeting adjourned until 4 o'clock Taursday afternoon. when it is proposed to form an aseociation without Thomas' help. a BROKEN BANKS. THE BEELIIVE. Judge Williams yesterday gave a decision in the Beehive Bank case which will be good news to the disconsolate believers in Sydney Myers and his ad-viers. It wtil be remembered that among the vaunted attractions offered by tile manager of the Beehive were certain investmen't certificates Popularly known as the Chandler cenificates, which were Issued in sums of $100 and upwards. and advertised as secured on real-estate securities worth far more than the amount if certificates. The rate of interest was 7 3-10 per cent which, also was attractive. A large number of depositors in the bank and others invested in these certificates, and for a time all went well. But after the bank failed a serious question was raised about the legality of the whole scheme. The securities had been bought with money derived from the savings deposits, and the depositors naturally thought they were entitled to them. Mr. Chandler, on behalf of the owners of the certificates. filed a bill against Receiver Ward to have the question settled and Mr. Ward filed across-bill, each making a claim to these seen nties. About $93,000 of investment certificates are out standinw and the securities are claimed to be worth about $100, 000. The Judge remarked at the opening that the question was entirely novel. The Receiver claimed the securities were held by the bank for the benefit of all the depositors, and that it was a breach of treat to turn over those funds, bought witntbe mouey of depositors, to the credtt of those who inyeseed in the certificates. This was, in ellect.giving some of the depositors a preference at the expense of the others. That was a perversion of trust. A bank might become a trustee, and the by-laws of the Merchants', Farmers' Ja Mechanic& Savings Bank Provided that all sums received should be held in trust. By the by-laws every depositor was bound to take knowledge of the provisions of the charter, and submit to all the conditions contained in the by-la. There was thus a contract between each depositor and the bank that the latter held the deposits received in trust, to be invested in a certain way to be determined by the by-laws. The Investment-certificate scheme, , however, Interfered materially with such trust. The holders of certificates received a higher rate of interest. an obtained as securities pledges which were held in trust for other parties. That was an evident departure from what the by-laws required, and was contrary to equity. There was no reason why two men should deposit a certain sum the same day and one of them receive higher interest, and also securities purchased with the other man's money. It was evidently a breach of trust. The wording of the securives was alone sufficient to show that they had already been pledged for a definite purpose from which they could not be diverted. The demurrer to the cross-bill was therefore overruled. Receiver Ward has gotten in about $21,000 on account of the investment certificates of the Beehive Bank. and when the whole amount due on those documents is collected in there will be a dividend for the $749.000 worth of creditors, provided, however, Judge Williams decision is not reversed by the Supreme Court in the event of the holders of the certificateecarrying the matter up to that tribunal. The Sonth-Town Collector yesterday sent in potai cards notifying Mr. Ward that there was due on the personal-property usessment of 1873 S3ti, 314, and on 1874 44, 991. Those sums cannot be paid, and tne only property of a personal kind now held by the Receiver is a couple of hundred dollars' worth of clocks, chairs, and desk& Tull GERMAN SAVINGS. Mr. 'O. H. Horton, Iteeeiver of the German Sayings Bank. tiled his regular monthly report yesterday, which is as follows: It SCRIPTS.

Brown, by which the trust-deed was to be toreclosed and five acres of Mt land conveyed to them, they then releasing any claims they might have to toe remainder. The Receiver could not foreclose with this cloud on the title, and be asked that tee matter might be referred to the Master for examination. To the Master accordingly it went, and yesterday be tiled his report. finding that the lien of the trust-deed was paramount to any claim of the Browns, and advising the Receiver to go on and sell, if necessary, without regard to their claims.

The Collectors of Hanover and Orland turned 1I,000 each into the Treasury yesterday. The County Clerk bag completed the Assessor's books, and they will be sent to the bindery to-morrow. The work has been done without any "extra" help, and done earlier than usual. A Commissioner has had S300 put In his bands by a contractor, and it is reported that he handed it back and threatened to go before the Grand Jury if the insult was repeated. The report may or may not be well founded. Nineteen prisoners were discharged from the jail late yesterday afternoon in a body. the Grand Jury Saturday having returned "no bills" againat them. With a proper administration of justice they would have been discharged Saturday. The jury in the case of Pat Dolan, on trial Saturday for burglary, brought a verdict of guilty into the Criminal Court yesterday, fixing his imprisonment at one year in the Penitentiary. The rest of the day was given to calling the quasi-criminal calendar. and the Police Court lawyers had a great time. The room was packed with their fair but frail clients, and will be again to-day. A. W. Edwards. of the Protection Life-Insurance Company, and Maj. Woods, Insurance Examiner, who were indicted Saturday for conspiring to defraud the patrons of that Comaany out of S200,- 000, came into the Criminal Court yesterday and gave bond. Edwards' bond was fixed at $20,0oo, and gave as bondsmen D. W. Ellsworth and L. IL Bisbee, Woods bond was fixed at $3.000, and his bondsmen were J. W. Stewart and S. E. Minor. The old indictments against the other officers of the Company were dismissed, and they are expected to appear to-day. except Reid, who has never been heard from. and who in all probability never will be. There is something strange about the fact that no effort has been made to arrest him, though an indictment has been pending against him for Bevel-31 months. Several times recently the Minutes of the Board have been bundleu. and it has been suggested that it is about time some one had their keeping, who knew his business. The minutes of the meeting held a week ago. read yesterday. are the latest instance. The Committee on Public Service was made to report on the per diem of the Commissioners, recommending the allowance to Tabor of pay for seventy-live days. while he only asked for forty-one. The Cammittee reported no such thing, and by the minutes tieing "doctored" the County Treasurer was led to do that which the County-Attorney had advised him, on a knowledge of toe facts, not to do. Mr. Klokke should see to It that such a blunder is not repeated, for it is trilling, with a matter of the greatest importance and throwing a cloak around the schemes of the Board. The Commissioners drew their per diem yesterday. Taper rot off with $170 that be had no title to,that is, he rett rued tie bill for forty-one days' service, was voted seventy-five days, and took it. Ile committed a criminal act in taking the money, and tne Board did the same thing in voting it to him. Ile has done the same thing twice before, however, so it is nothieg new. This time. however, the chances are that he will not get off so easy as he imagines. as the outrage will be brought to the attention of the Grand Jury. The law provides that for Ott second offense of this kind he shall be deposed from ottice, and also that those who have voted him the money shall meet a like late. After all, them, his conduct may prove to be a blessing in disguise, may rid the public of paying taxes to be diabarsed by a lot of corruptiontsts. CEI3IINAL. I. Patty" Mullins, alias George Stevens, was nabbed last evening by Detective Bauder in the act of stealing a pair of $14 shoes from J. B. Lambkin, of No. DO State street. The prisoner is just out of the Penitentiary. Mike Barry, a young North Side rough, 21 years of age, has just finished a three-vseeks drunk, during which he furiously abused his aged parents.

M.". a Lair chain- a lady's trold ,-o watch, and a fe4-., eeien and ends of jewelry. One of the boxes bears tnename oi Mr. Huffman. The articies are evidently the proceeds of a robbery not yet reported to the police. The prisoner gave the 118M0 of John Tobin, but was recoenized as an old offender, John O'Day, who has but lately been released from the House of Corrction. Henry Clay. a colored waiter at the Burdick House, was detected in stealing a ailver spoon-holder. and yesterday Detectives Wiley and murnane visited bis rooms at Now 253 Third avenue, and there recovered quite a quantity of silverware, in tee way of spoons, fork, etc., about half of which was identified as belonging to the house. The rest awaits an owaer at the Armory. As Henry Wolper wearily plodded hie homeward way last Saturday night he espied a luscious turkey hanging in front of No. 154 South Water. He nipped ithe stole it. Mr. R. T. Thomas, the rightful owner, nipped Henry In the act. and the youth spent toe night in the station-house rather than at home breaking wish-bones and all that sort of thing. Justice ilarnmill yestercleychaneed the charee from larceny to disorderly, and Henry Wa.4 fined e15 and costa.--the price of many turkeys.

At the Armory they eaye the names of Michael O'Brien and William Hunt- T ne silverware has not yet been recovered, but It was certainly stolen. J. P. Reid is a tailor doing business at No. 235 State street, and J. P. Kraemer has been In his employ. The latter got drunk, had a dispute wita Reid. and yesterdav afternoon went to tee store, determined upon fighting it out. In the melee the tsilord seized their favorite weapons, scissors, and when they arrived at the station :both were covered with stabs. A physician attended them while at the Armory, and, although the wounds were numerous, none were of a serious nature. Reid had several deep cuts in the head, and his opponent was badly cut up about the hands and wrists, one jab in the wrist narrowly escaping an artery. Both refused to prosecute for the stabbing, thus owning that they were equally culpable, and hence they were only booked as disorderly. Justice Scully yesterday heM the following: James Taylor. prize-aghter, and James Kelley, burglary of a suit of clothes from the room of James McConville. on Jackson street, $500 to the Criminal Court; Jacob Pero, robbing J.
