Ackerman and F. J. Kennett of the Ctai-. Hifo Club, and a reception and lunch at tne Washington Park Club, at wh'cu Collector beo-berger and Mayor Harrison were guests. Mr. Theodore Gestefeldt, who has for the last ten years been prominently connected with the German and English press or Chicago, leaves today for the City of Mexico to take a responsible position on the Two Republics, one of the fading papers of that place, and to give it some ot tbe enterprise and push which are among tbe qualities of Chicago journalism. The 2-year-old son of Charles Cook of No. 155 Cly bourn avenue was playing about Matz's o gar-box factory, No. 143 Clybourn avenue, vesterdav morning, when his clothing caught on a revolving snatt which projected from the building and was whirled around a number or times before the machinery could be stopped. The child's arms and legs were broken and it vill die. ti, T0f Thmnna Tone Ilodnett takes leave of his congregation at St. Malachy'a Cburch today. He goes to Ireland on a few months" visit to his mother, whom ho has not seen since his call to the priesthood, and who now nears the ripe age or three-quarters of a wnturr. The splendid cburch and spacious i school of St. Malacby'a attest the father's zeal and labors, and the academy on Oakley avenue., bears evidence of bis foresight, and will soon, under the management of tbe Sisters of Mercy ot Western avenue, be a model seminary. Free instruction in mechanical drawing is given in the Evening High School on Monroe street, a few doors east of Halsted, every evening except Saturday and Sunday, from 7 to 9 o'clock. The teacher has had five years' experience as a draughtsman, and will make the course thoroughly practical. The wishes of the pupils will be consulted, and as far as practicable carried out. Those who attend regularly will make plans, elevations, and sections of details of machines and other objects, and will have a good knowledge of the principles or mechanical drawing at the close ol the term. The second paper read before the Philosophical Society in this year's cours was upon the "Educational Value of Manual Training," by Dr. Charles H. Ham, who thought that the band did not receive Its due measure of honor, in the corporal hierarchy. He regarded the present system of education as subject to the malignant influenoe of medieval phiiosopuical ideas, and thought tnat the mind should be trained more through the Hand and less through tbe ear and eye. It was the hand, be said, that enabled man to riso above the brute, and he hoped to see more respect paid to it in tbe future. At the meeting of the surviving members of the Forty-second Regiment Illinois Infantry held at the Sherman yesterday morning Maj. A. F. Stevenson presented the old ejlors of tbe regiment, which were given in charge of the historian. The flag was afterwards displayed in tho office and created a good deal of attention. It was carried in the t-attles of Chickamauga, Stone Kiver, and Varmlngton. At Chickamauga the staff waa cut in two by a minie ball. Tbe original coiot-bcarer, A. Powell, was present at the meeting. Resolution? in memory or tbe comrades who were killed in battle were unanimously adopted. The United Hebrew Relief Association at its last mcetina elected the following officers for the ensuing year: President, Isaao Greens-feldcr; Vice-President, Charles 11. Schwab; Financial Secretary, Joseph Pollak; Recording Secretary, Charles V. Holzbeimer; Treasurer, Herman Schnffner; Trustees, holding over, Jacob Rosenberg, Henry L. Frank.

Sherburn vs. The To- hcy Furniture Company about a f 7.50 mattress, before Judge Hawes Friday, the defendants, owing to the case being thrown out of court after the plaintiff had given his testimony, which was published yesterday, complain that their side of tbe case was not made public. They state that Mr. S. was told that the mattress was made or fcboddy when be bought It, ad that they heard nothing more about it until a year or two alterwards, when the company retuscd the plaintiff credit, be brought suit 8talnst them. The case caused considerable merriment in court until Judge Hawes brought the case to a clote by ordering tne Jury to render a verdict lor the defendant. J.J. Donnellan, architect, is preparing drawings for the following buildings: A theatre with a seating capacity of 1,500, to be erected on South Halsted street; a four-story building to be erected on South Clark street TorC. F. Remiek at a cost of. $10,000; a two story and c liar rebidence, to be erected oo Looinis street, near Polk, for Mrs. Jennings, at cost of S7,0GQ; a two-story and cellar residence to be eiected on Congress street, titer Lafl.n, for G. Bloom, to cost $8,001); block ot seven bouses to be erectea on Taylor street, near Paulina, lor D. Byrne, at a cost of S-5,000, and converting tne old St. Luke's Hospital on Indiana avenue, near Fourteenth ttreet, into email flats. Coopers' Assembly, No. 2309, of the Knights or Labor held its regular semi-monthly meeting at No. 2523 South Halsted street last night. A large number or new members were initiated. The union which bas fallen off considerably for tbe last three years received numerous additions from the ranks of the coopers or Armour & Co. and Fowler Bros., who have struck for an increase or wages irora Sii.oo to $3 a day, which other firms are paying. The strike was not discussed officially at last nisrbt's meetizur. The strikers were con fident of final victory. They claimed there were not twenty-five coopers in all the packing- nouses woo did not belong to tne anion, and they did not expect much competition from laborers from other cities. The number of toe strikers is about 130. Thirty alumnre of Vassar College gathered at the annual banquet of their association yesterday at tbe Palmer. At tho busiuess meeting, preceding an elaborate dinner, a letter was read from Dr. Kendrick, the Acting President of the colleire. and the officers were elected, as follows: President, Miss M. L. Avery, Whitewater. Wis.; Vice-President, Miss Clare Rustln. Omaha; Secretary and Treasurer, Miss E. W. Towner,' Chicago; Assistant Secretary, Miss Marr Cooley, Dubuque, la. The creditors of Merrick A. Richardson, the Lake street hardware dealer who failed a few days ago, held a meeting at the Tremont yesterday morning and talkel over Mr. Richardson's affairs without coming to any basis of agreement. Some of the Eastern creditors are said to be dissatisfied with the p an of aiiowiug Mr. Richardson to continue in business without having first a thorough examination into bis affairs. A few of the number are on the ground, and it is probable some agreement will soon be reached. The New England Journal of Education bas this to say of a Chicago man: "Mr. James R. Doolittlo, President of the Board of Education, Is succeeded by bis predecessor, Mr. Adoir Kraus, who was elected at the last regular meeting. Never before have the duties of the office been more faithfully discharged, nor by ono more eminently qualified for the position. Though a prominent lawyer, Mr. Doo little gave much of his valuable time to tbe discbarge ot the duties of his office in the interests of education. His familiarity with our public-scbool system, bla keen appreciation of Its needs, ' his recognition of the teachers and tbeir work, made him invaluable. It is not often that an honorary position la so highly honored by the incumbent." A meeting of representatives' of the lodges of the Knigbts ot Pytbias of the District of Cook was held last nhrbt at the Sherman House. The evening was spent In schooling the representatives on points of legislation that they may re prepared to go before the session or the Grand i,oage tnis iau wun recommendations and suggestions .as to revisions, repeals, and other changes in the gen eral laws and rules of the order which are thought by several of the leading Chicago members to be necessary and likely to prove beneficial. One ot these recommendations will be that applicants for admission to the order shall seek union with uie lodges geographically nearest to their various places of residence, except in cities, where the applicant may join any lodge inside the city's Units. THE PUBLIC L1BBART. The Public Library Board met yesterday. The report of Librarian Poole for September showed tbe following figures: Books taken out, 41.233, against 35,599 during the corresponding month last year; daily average circulation, 1,734; visitors to the reference department, 5,304; to the reading-room, 47,132; volumes at . present In the library, 112,152. The Hon. John Wentworth presented rthe board with a copy ot his book entitled " Early Chicago." together with some of the original manuscript tor the same. Librarian Poole stated that he had seen Aid. Mahoney, Chairman of the Council Committee on Public Buildings, with reference to the removal of the library to the City-Hall. The Alderman stated that tbe committee would meet in the near future t j consider the matter, and he would notify the committee of the board to be present. Mr. Poole thought the Council was willing to let the library conu? in, the only question being the advisability of allowing it to use the room op-posit the Council Chamber. Mr. Cailaghan said Aid. Wetberell had advised the board to accept as many rooms as it could get and move in. Then, if they needed more rooms, be thought tbe Council would yield them. The Committee on Buildings and Ground3 was added to the Committee on Library, which has heretofore had charge of the matter. to be la trouble I wonder what the matter is." Whereupon, he claims, one of the officers rushed up to Herbert, caught him by the collar, dragged him across the 6treet, and kicked him. "What do you mean by Insulting this man in this manner?" asked Jones. In reply, Jones says, the officer pul'ed out his 'billy" and knocked him down. The two men were arrested and offered to go to the station peacefully. But the officers called the patrol-wagon to take them to tne armory. Hero they were locked up all night, and in the morning brought before Justice Meech under a charge of interfering with an officer. Herbert was fined 51 and Jones discharged. The officers in their exertions to arreet the two men had neglected the woman, who made her escape. Herbert is a young Englishman who baa been in thii country onlr a few weeks and was not acquainted with the ways of Chicago policemen. Jones 6ays tbe experience so thoroughly frightened him that he does not feel like going to the theatre and being out at eight again. EVANSTON ELOPEMENTS. A TRIP TO WISCONSIN PRIOR TO SETTLING IN CHICAGO. Chicago now harbors another child-wife, and that fact has caused the sensation of the year in the Village of South Evanston. Everybody concerned was close-mouthed in regard to tbe elopement, for this it was, Dut tne main lacis , were finally learned. The bride is the hand- j some 15-year-old daughter of Postmaster Nio ; Morpcr, and the groom is Charles W. Darrow, a 27-year-old law student in the employ of the Chicago. Burlington & Quincy Railroad. He had lived in South Evanston Several years, and is an ex-Village Clerk of the village. He boarded at Morper's three or four years, and while there became enamored of tbe daughter, who assisted her father in the post-office. Dar-row's attentions to the girl were discountenanced by ber parents, and be was admonished on divers occasions to stop. But, believing that "all is fair in love and war," be heeded not and he was invited to seek quarters elsewhere, Morper telling bis would-be son-in-law to wait until the girl was old enough, and then if she wanted him he could have her. This did not satisfy the young man and be set about scneming to thwart tne conclusions of her parents. He asked the girl's father last; Saturday ir be could take ber to the Exposition, but was referred to her mother. She reluctantly consented. In the evening Lizz.e left the post-office, went home and merely changed ner dress, which leads her parents to believe that she had no previous intimation of her escort's intentions. Accordingly tho pair left, and that night went to Elroy, Wis., and were married. The fo lowing day they came to Chicago, where they are now living. When it dawned upon the father that his daughter had at last married, and she so vounsr, his rage was great. He went to Chicago to find bis new relative, but could get no trace ol him. No communication has as yet passed between them, although it is possible that atl will be taken as a matter of course and a reconciliation may follow. AND STILL ANOTHER. On tbe heels of this comes another of more recent date. Tbe parties to the last affair are for the present nameless. Two or three days ago the parties came to the city to be joined. The man got a ring and put it on ber finger and then started for the County Clerk's ' office to procure a license. Upon his arrival there the establishment was closed. He reported this fact to his sweetheart and then endeavored to persuade ber to wait in tbe city over nigbt and be married on the morrow. She declined at first but finally he intrusted to her keeping the sum of 300. The following day be was disinclined to get tbe license. But she had the 300 and it was now her turn. He pleaded to be allowed the custody of the funds, but she refused to return the money until the ceremony was performed. He therefore got the license and they were marr ed. True to her worn, she returned the money. He lett, "just for a moment to see a 1 riend," and has not leen seen Bince. The young wire does nottake kindly to this sort of honeymoon, and will shortly commence legal proceedings in the divorce courts against ber recreant spouse. THE MAYOR'S SIDEWALK. IT WILL BE TORS UP AND ONK UI . uaiu IS ITS PLACE. The sidewalk department knew nothing about the new wooden sidewalk in front of No. 204 East Washington street, owned by Mayor Harrison, until told about It by a Tribune reporter. Acting-Superintendent Hart said that the ordinance required a stoue walk, permitting repairs only to the extent of "lO per cent, and he would look into the matter at once. Commissioner Cregier said it should be torn up Monday morning because tbe law bad been violated, and, in his judgment. Mayor Harrison would cooperate, the Commissioner believing that the Msyor did not know anything about it. A man named Coyne built the walk, and be may have received his orders from the agent lor the property. It is certainly very unfair to other property-owners to refuse them permission to put down wooden sidewalks, and let one be constructed 1nl'ront of Mr. Harrison's lot. The police are supposed to watch for. violations of tbe law, but although the carpenters were at work all of Friday afternoon and a part of yesterday morning the offioeron the beat appearr not to have seen them. He may have been, loafing, in a saloon. He certainly was not attending to his business. . - - AN UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE. - nn.-.r v ii 1VIU V Tl RV TTTR TWO YOUNG nwiH"" " - . w. A WISS HUSBAND. FEARING HE WOULD HARM SOME ONE HE HAD HIMSELF ARRESTED. William Helm, a North Side German, 42 yars old, walked up to Officer Kiley on the street at 12:30 a. m. yesterday and asked the policeman in a confused way to accompany him to his house aa there was a man there who ought to be taken under protection. When the officer and Helm reached the house the only persons found there were Helm's wife and their daughter, a young woman 13 years old. Holm then insisted on being arrested, much to the perplexity or the officer.who noticed that the man was sober. "Take me, take mo," said Helm, "for I have bad trouble with my wire." No explanation was offered by Mrs. Helm, and the poliocman, under the impression tbat Helm was insane, took him to the station. Mrs. Helm came to court yesterday morning and eame forward when her husband's case was ca.led. Thinking that she was on trial instead of her husband 6ho gasped out after blushing a good deal: "I plead guilty." "To what?" asked Justice Kersten. "To criminal intimacy with a strange man," replied the woman now making a clean breast of it. The stranjre man proved to be Peter Bretz, who was a promipent figure in the celebrated trials of Dr. Meyer, who was accused of poisoning people, it being alleged at one time that Meyer tried to hire Uretz to act lor mm in some of the alleged crimes. Helm was greatly disturbed by bis wife's confession an4 plucking her sleeve whispered: "Stop, tell no more.' "Tell your story," commanded Justice Kersten turning to Helm. "I knew there was a man in my wife's apart ment and when I discovered that ' there was I ran out upon the street for fear that if I remained in tbe bousel might do something rash. Two or three times I almost started back and who knows what I might have done. It was a terrible trial and 1 felt that I was gettiug greatly excited. I knew that I was not in a fit mood to be running loose on the streets, and then I asked this officer to lock me up to prevent consequences, over which 1, in my excitement and anger, could have had but verv little control." The court discharged the man and advised him to keep cool ana make the best of mat ters. THE CITY-HALL. TENEMENT-HOUSE INSPECTION FILLING CP A QUARRY DRUGGISTS' LICENSES. The Tenement-House Inspectors examined last week 187 dwellings, containing 1,786 rooms, occupied by 399 families consistins of 1,670 persons, serving 148 notices, and abating 471 defects. They also looked over 34 factories, 85 stores, and 27 miscellaneous buildings. Only eighteen men are now employfed, and the meagre week's work is due to the fact that the discharged inspectors left 23,000 abatement notices which need looking after to see that they have been complied with. Superintendent McGann of tbe Street Department bas requested the Commissioner of Health to fill up the old quarry in the block bounded by Eighteenth, Van Horn, Lincoln, and Wood streets. If possible an arrangement will be made with the owners to pay 10 cents a load for ashes, etc., as they will be greatly benefited by . making the property marketable.. The hole is large enough to take care of all the refuse for two or three years, but it will cost considerable to haul the Stuff there. - r - If the druggists who took . out licenses will apply to the Comroller they can get their money back, it being unnecessary to employ a lawyer or any one else to collect it. V THE LAKE SANITARIUM. . The ladies of the Lake Sanitarium, at the foot of Twenti-fifth street, report that they looked after 300 children in July, 200 in August, and 100 from Sept. 1 to Sept. 15. There were eight deaths at the sanitarium, but all the others got well and were sent home. Some of the children were there from one to four weeks. The ladies will give their second annual ball in the early part of December for the benefit of the fund. This institution is a most worthy one, and deserves all the assistance the publio may give it. WEST SIDE MARKET. The Committee on Markets will recommend that tbe Superintendent of Police be instructed to enforce the ordinance relattns to the space on West Randolph street, between Des-plaines and Halsted. It provisions have not Leen lived up to In several respects, and the Market Inspector seems powerless to compel compliance with its provisions. The hucksters are to be confined to the open space in the centre of the street, and provision is to be made for dealers in garden truck. FORFEITED BONDS. City Attorney Washburne received a batch of "forfeited " bail bonds from the North Side Police Court, and also a lot from the West Side court. Of the former six were signed by George Hankins, twelve by Hugh Dunne, eitrbteen by J. Martin, twelve by T. J. HanK-ins, and thirty-six by John Walpole. Of the latter five were signed by John Brennan and two by Chris Casselman. John Dowling, who was surety on eighteen bonds in the South Side court, banded in 572 yesterday the amount assessed against the defendants in these cages. That let him out. Unless the other sureties pay the fines they will be sued on the bonds. WITHOUT APPARENT CAUSE. mnmini?. at 12:30 o'clock," C. Jones and George Herbert were walking oa South Clark street, when at the corner of Randolph street they saw a crowd around the patrol-box. They found that two policemen were arresting a woman, and went up to learn the cause. The one who called himself Jones said to a Tribune reporter that bis friend Herbert exclaimed: "Charlie, this woman appears THE GOVERNMENT BUILDING-. SPECIAL LETTER DELIVERY. The special messengers of the Post-Office yesterday delivered 201 specially-prepaid letters. One letter with an ordinary 10-cent stamp and a two-cent stamp was received but not delivered, because the 10-cent stamp was not of the right denomination. Two bundles bearing the special messenger stamp were received but not delivered. The rules do not provide for the delivery of bundles, and the bundles are now at the office awaiting claimants. A messenger-boy named McElligott was run over by a cab in front of the Post-Office during the afternoon. He was considerably bruised, but was able to go home alone. BALE OF BTAMrg, ETC. The following rules have been promulgated by the Superintendent of tbe retail stamp department in . regard to the sale of stamps, envelopes, and the like: Between 9 a. m. and 4 p. m. individual sales of one and two-eem stamps shall not exceed lU9in number. sfnnmsof denominations greater than lour cents .hnii not be sold to exceed ninety-nine in number.

Auditor of tba Post-Office Department at Washington, called on the Post-Office officials in the Government Building yesterday afternoon. Collector Seeberger escaped from the vexatious offioescekers long enough yesterday aft-.mnnn m attend tie reception of President Garrett of the Baltimore & Ohio. THE COURTS. BOOKKEEPER- BERNARD DISCHARGED OJI ! - - TECHNICALITY. - In the case of the Bank of Montreal against it defaulting bookkeeper, trann r. uernara. a motion was made before Judge Anthony yes terday to quash the capias on the ground that ti, of action no longer existed. It ap peared from an affidavit filed by Mr. S. K. now on behalf of the defendant, that some time ago Willi- Ledger teller of the bank, was uuu . n th Amount of 4,9(1. Bernard avou uio w was bookkeeper at the time and was said to have been a partner in tbe defalcation. Ledger Luferu? by paying about 83,000. The bank, however, prosecuted Bernard to recover one-half the amount of the theft, and he set up the plea of the settlement with Ledger and claimed as a matter ot law that this compromised the wVoie crime and he could not be prosecuted; that in an action of tort a settlement witn one of the participants - satisnea tne claim against all. The Judge held that this was the law, and quashed the capias, thus re leasing Bernard, who nas oeen in jan several months, being unable to find $3,000 ball. The bank thereupon dismissea tne case, not aeem- ing it worth while to prosecute rurther unless they could have some security iwr any juag- ment they might get, t A QUESTION OF COMMERCIAL LAW. A legal point of some interest was raised be fore Judge Gary in tbe ease or tne fctreator Coal Company against Hannah Newman. This was a suit on some notes guaranteed by the 'e- fendantfor a friend. The defense was that tbe guarantor is entitled to notice from the benti-ficiary of the guarantor that the guaranty is satisfactory. T&e aeienunai cminira luai she was entitled to notice from the company that ber guaranty was sufficient, but the Judge held that this was not necessary, out mat sd must be held to know the effect of her indorsement of thp notes as guarantor. Judgment was entered in favor of the plaintiff for $1,386. THE DELAYS OF AN ASSIGNEE. Last Monday Henry J. Goodriehonee as signee in bankruptcy of tbe firm or . Pry ber & Sweetland, was ruled Dy Juage rrenoergasiw turn over tbe funds of the nrra in nis nauas yesterday on pain of attachment. There was about $2,100 unaccounted ior oy aim. jus papers were all burned in the Grannis Block, so that he could not give an itemized" account. It la alleged that be has wasted the money and cannot repay it, but as he has been grievously sick nobody likes to press him too bard. Yesterday he did not, indeed "comply with tbe order of the court, but presented a report in which he said that be had performed numerous services for the bankrupt firm which, by reason of tbe destruction of J bis papers, he was unable to particularize, and he asked to : have the amount for which he bad not ac counted -allowed him for his services. Jmlim 'Prenderirast thought $2,100 au exor bitant demand, but allowed him $300, leaving a deficiency of $1,800. For this sum the court offered to enter up Judgment against him, to en able tna creditors to sue upon his bond. As no one cares to have him attached, this course will probably be pursued, although the credit ors' attorney doubts whether the bond is of much value. ITEMS. J Judee Collins decided tne habeas corpus case of Kate Fahflr aeainst Mr. and Mrs. Dundas to get possession of her illegitimate child, Henry Phelan. Tho Jude decided that the baby should remain with the respondents on the ground that the mother was not able to sup- nort and care for it pronerly. A judgment for $10,236 was entered up Saturday before Judge Gary by Jonathan B. Graham against his sou David Mills Graham. This was for money lent to David and his brother for the purchase of cows and 6heep with which to stocK a ranch in Kussen county, nansas. The t rother died, and some legal complications having arisen the judgment was entered up to protect the father's interests. In the case of Lewis Goodman et al. against Harzfeld, Friend & Co. the receiver, Louis Wampold, filed a report Saturday showing that the assets of the firm consist wholly ot open accounts of aface value of $15,545, of which at least 22.1100 is uncollectable. The receiver bas collected 2,233 since his appointment, and disbursed 416. lea vine $L81d still on band.

Yes terday be.tried to schedule out. His name ap pears to have become anglicized to Jobnsonwitb- in the last fortnight. Hannah's lawyer opposed his release, but Judge Prendergast explained that a defendant could not be kept in jail on a canias unless the action was based on malice. The suit begun In the Cireuit Court was for breach or promise, although it might just as easily have been trespass on the case for seduc tion, which is an action implying mauce. ine court remanded the young Norseman until Monday, to give the attorneys an opportunity to get leave to change tbe lorm oi acuon so as to hold tbe offender.

Being informed that Dr. Peiro, the celebrated throat physician of Chicago, had recently a real cancer of the tongue, we cauea at nis eiegani offices In the Opera-House Building, and the following conversation reveals the facts: "Dr. Peiro, will you state th9 particulars in regard to your cancer patient, that the publio may be accurately informed?" " Certainly, sir: it need be no secret. The lady to whom vou refer is Mrs. George Allen I will not give her stage name, only observing she is a prominent actress. For three years she has not been able to attend to professional duties because of a malignant disease of the throat for which she has been constantly treated by eminent physicians. The last sixty days she has been under my care. I have removal the whole of cancer of tbe right tonsil and portion or the tongue. Though it was almost a hopeless case, she has rallied with great vigor. She Is now free from pain; the parts have almost entirely beaied; has excellent appetite; can eat, drink, and sleep as well us ever In her life; and of course feels delighted to know she is once more to be a well woman." " Well, doctor, this being so extraordinary a case, with such pappy results. It must necessarily largely increase even your present wide circle or friends and patients, do you not think S" That, sir, Is the chief end and ambition of all reputable physicians, to do all the good in their power, and thereby gain the esteem and patrouage of all whose good opinion and friendship Is worth having." " I am greatly obliged to von, Dr. Peiro, for the Information obtained." Very welcome, sir. Good-by. .' ' HIE CAFE.
