iOTOEDfflOI TUESDAY EVEiVLVfl. NOVEMBSS 80, 1888. HE MAY RESIGN, But Not Because of Dr. McLean's Attack. Popnty Otterson Will Take no Notice of : the Charee - His Accuser So gests that He Ought to go West. The contiovcrsy between Dr. McLean and the Departmout or lloalth is growing warm. Com - :jnH3lODer Otterson tbls morning again refused to be - Interviewed on tho subject of the former health ln - sTpeotOt's charges. Doputy Commissioner Ottorson. boVbVer, said that until Dr. McLean's charges were put la writing no action would be taken by tho Board of Health. Continuing, Dr. Ottorson said: "There Is always moro or less disease among cat - tie in Brooklyn. The class of people who own " Itabloa lire among their cows, and would take It aa e, good Joko if they were asked to oloan them. There Is not a stable in Brooklyn which Dr. Bell, our vet - ornary Inspector, has not visited at one time CT another during the past few months. He Is a competent man In every respect for the place. Since the present administration came into power It has broken up several establishments whore cows wero afflicted wlih contagious disease. It Commissioner Ottorson thought the present stall f three health Inspectors were not sufficient he would no doubt appoint more. Theso mon are on the go all the tlmo. Dr. McLean is prejudiced agatast the Health Department. When he was dismissed ho made mighty efforts to retain the place. Much Inflceuoe was brought to bear in his behalf, hut it availed him nothing. The Board of Health has nothing personal against Dr.' McLean, who U at smart as a whip, and were he less peppery ho would have more frlonds. That the gentleman has never felt happy since he got out of the Board of Health Is apparent He would, I have no doubt, like to got the 'bulgo' on the Department." In a morning paper it was stated that Deputy Commissioner Otterson intended shortly to resign. When asked concerning the matter the gentleman !: "I can't now toll whother I shall resign or not If 1 do reBlgn It will not be because of auythlng said by Dr. McLean. I suppose that 1 have the same prlvilogo of resigning as anyone else." Former Moat Inspector Hobday wished to correct the statement made in last night's Eagle in regard to Moat Inspectors MoElroy and May. These gen - tlomen wero called a prize flghtor and a convict respectively. Mr. Hobday, when he made the above allegations had roforenco to Dr. J. Frod Moore, a physician attached to the Health Department, and Dr - Grotho, a chemist, also of the Board. The formor gontloman was convicted on 8oturday of assaulting a bakor on Court street, while testimony was recently advanced tondlng to show that Dr. Grotho was onco an Inmate of a penitentiary. It was Mr. Hobday s opinion that the Board of Health had become thoroughly aroused to the bad sanitary condition of certain Brooklyn cow stables, and ' that it would shortly take some decided action In the matter. Dr. L. McLoan was callod upon by a reporter today and asked what he had to say in relation to the charges made against him by Doputy Health Commissioner Otterson. He said: "I am exceedingly sorry that Dr. Otterson has Introduced any porsonal feeling In trying to insinuate that I want notoriety and cheap advertising. My charges are tpetiinc and pointed, and none of them have boon squarely met I know tho seriousness of these chargos, their Injurious otfoct upon this community, and would not make them lightly. Dr - Otterson claims that I nover reported a single taao to the Board of Health. On March 5 Pre. Griffith and Bartley, of the Department V,f Health oxamlned diseased specimens of five car - jasos thon hanging in Johnson avenue slaughter houses and wero convinced of the highly unsuitablo Character of the moat for human food, and were sakotl by mo to report the same to the Commissioner - The gontlomen wore also roquosted to ask Commissioner Ottorson to examine the diseased epeoimons at my office. This Dr. Ottorson declined to do and tho diseased carcases were permitted to bo sold as human food. On tho 21st of March I wrote Dr. Otterson a letter drawing bis attention to the prevalence of contagious disease among oattle, but received no reply. Some timo during March last Offlcor Clark, of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, reported a case of contagious pluro pneumonia iu a milk cow. This morning I received the following letter from Officer Clark: Officp of TDK Society for tiie "1 Prevention of Cruelty to Anisials,V BltoOKl.YN, November 30, 1888. 1 Dr. Ji. McLean, Veterinary Inspector for the 8. P. C. A.: Dear Sir In roforonce to your controversy with the Doputy Commissioner of Health, Dr. W. C. Ottorson, allow rao to romlnd you of a cow offected with acute contagious plouro pneumonia In a stable on Myrtle avenuo, and condemned by you on the 17th of March, which caso I reported to tho Health Department, expecting It to take action in the matter, and the curt reception I received from the deputy and I was told to givo them (the owners of the oow), as none knew bettor how to do It than Henry Bergh. This reception did not encourage me to repeat my visit, although many such niin - hhTfrfi nturh nnmounder our notice. Wo prose cuted the owner ot - tne aiseaaeu ww ueiuro ouujjo Maener, had him fined 25 and tho cow destroyed. Yours truly, F. Clark, Offlcor. "Is it necessary for the Socloty for the Prevention Of Cruelty to AnlmalB to report cases of contagious fnooa tn fh nf Rfinlth." Dr. MiT.flftn WAR asked. "Decidedly no. Mr. Bergh's instructions of the 25th of November, as printod In tho Eagle of yesterday, were issued under a misapprehension of the situation, and have since boen withdrawn. The fact is that tho Department of Uealth wants .the officers of the Society to Instruct the Board how to perform its duty. To substantiate the abovo statement 1 must draw your attention to tho following letter: Office of the Commissioner of Health. 1 Brooklyn, Novomber 17, 1880. Eupvrlntendent J. R. Pye, of the S. P. C. A.: DEAR Sir In making up my annual report to the Board of Health you will greatly oblige and render the report more complete by giving me the number of glaudered horses coming under your Jurisdiction within the city lor tho present year of 1886. Very rospeatfully, Ltjcien M. Bell, M. D., Yeteeary Inspector Department of Health. I have made," continued Dr. McLean in conclusion, " the foUowIng specific chargos, namely : That the present Board of Health has pormltted the mtlk of diseased cows to be used as an article of diet without restriction; that tho sanitary condition of the cow stables has been allowed to become so defective that tho milk exposed to the contaminated atmosphere becomes a medium for conveying a disease, particularly typhus fever, to those who use It In addition, I am ready and willing to prove my statements to any competent and impartial Judge, and I trust that the Board of Health trill not endeavor to dodge this vital issue which effects the health of the Innocent children and others of Brooklyn to such an alarming extent If milk was in every Instance boiled its bad effects would be largely neutralized. If Dr. Otterson finds that he can't treat Brooklyn people civilly he should go West." THE FINANCIAL SITUATION. CoiaBTreFmraien Awaiting the Recoui - mcndatlona of (be President. Speoiol to the Eagle. Washington, D. C November 30. Arriving Congressmen are much Interested In the ebaracter of tho financial recommendations to be made to Congress by the President and Secretary of the Treasury. The Proaldent seems to realize tho momentous importance of the situation and In his way extract the views of such of tho public men calling upon him as he supposes may have Ideas worthy of consideration. Among other suggestions recently made to him Is sue to recommend the immediate refunding of the t)4 per cents, which will expire In 1891, with a thirty year 3 per cent bond. It Is thought that all, or atleast tho very large majority of the holders of the X percents, would be glad to change them for a long bond at the reduced rate of Interest THE HEW YORK DELEGATION.

Tbo Administrative Tariff Bill Introduced by Mr. Hewitt Special to the Eagle.' Washington, D. C., November 80. Whether or not Mr. Hewitt will reintroduce his administrative tariff bUI at the approaching session Is not definitely known. It Is thought that he will. This measure is of mate concern to Brooklyn than any other likely to come before Congress this Winter. It baa direct reference to the warehouse interest along the water front in its simplification of tbe methods of collecting customs dutlos and the' facilities which It attords to warehouse owners Jeremiah P. Robinson Henry E. Plerrepont and other Influential resldonts of Brooklyn are urgently advocating tho passage of the measure. LasJ Winter it was Introduced separately, but was subsequently Incorporated in the Morrison tariff bill. This notion very much angerod Mr. Hewitt and partly explains the estrangement between the two leaders ou tho Democratic side. The main reason why Darwin H. James voted for the Morrison bill was because it contained the Hewitt administrative clauses, clauses which In his Judgmont wero of paramount importance to his city. It Is not thought probable that tho measure can be passed this session owing to the few working days whioh Congress hap at Its disposal and tbe opposition which wilt havo to be encountered In the Senate. FULL POCKETS. Burglar John Johnson and His Plunder. A Chase and a Wrestling Mateh - Ofllcsr MorgAn's Pistol Brings a Marauder to Terms. Offlcor Morgan, of the York street police, was on duty at Catharine Ferry last night, and as he was looking around Just before going off duty at 12 o'clock he thought he hoard a nolso as of break - lug glass somewhere in the neighborhood. He ran upMalu street and saw a man standing In front of No. 49, Davii 8zansa's shoo store. As soon as he perceived the officer he started on a brisk run and turned Into Howard's court Morgan soon overhauled him and was about to place his hand on his collar when the fugitivo rondo a vicious blow at him. A catch as catch can contest followed which lasted for about Are minutes, when the policeman, thinking he had had enough of such exercise, drew his pistol and threatened to end the procoediugs summarily. This action had tho desired effect and the man who, although powerfully built was about tired out, surrendered. He was marched to the station house, and in answer to the usual questions, said, that his name was John Johnson, that he was a paintor, 42 yoara old and that ho lived at 30 Main street When the order wa3 given to soarch him, the first discovory that Officer Morgan made was that his prisoner had on two suits of clothes. Tho collection of articles turned out of Mr. Johnson's pockots and fouud hidden in tbe lining of his garments gave rise to the idea that he was a kind of peripatetic Jewelry store. Tho following is a complete list of tho property found on him: Eloven brass keys, four skeleton keys, ono silver hunting caso watch, ouo lady a gold watch and chain, ono gold lockot and chain' and compass, one gold chain and charm, two pairs of gold bracelets and two odd bracelets, ono gold match box, three gold collar buttons, throe gold anger rings, three pairs of gold oarriugs, three gold breastpins, one gold piu. throe gold shirt studs, one gold badge on which Is engraved "Ad.

After Johnson bad been locked up Roundsman Maude and Officer Morgan went back to Szausa's store and made an examination of the promises. They found a pane of glass had been broken in the side of the show window, near the lock of the door. In the street a few foot away they found ono shoe which had formed part of Szausa's show stock. Tho proprietor of the store said this morning that $1.50 bad been taken from the till, but Johueon could not have been the thief, as he had no time to get into the place. Some blood was on tbe window pane and a cut on the prisoners wrist showed that he had cut himself in his attompt to pusb bock the the lock of the door. A visit was mado to - day to Johuson's room, which Is on tho second door of 36 Malu street In a truuk was found the following property: One fancy brown leather workbox, with red velvet lining, containing throo handbags made of brown loather and red and purple velvet: nvo new carvod picture frames aud a photograph of Rev.

Mrs. McGuluness, of Front streot, near Main, says that Johnson called at her house last week, representing himself ns a poddlor and that after ho left she missed two overcoats.

His Mind Unhinged by His Defeat. The Competitor of Chairman Ice, of the Yonng Men's Democratic C!nb, Taken to Bloomlnsrdale His Case Not Incarahle. A week ago to - day the Young Men's Demo - cratlo Club held Its meeting for the election of offl - cora and Frederick Ji. Lee was ohosoh president Tho only prominent opponent to Mr: Leo was Kloh - ardLacey, of 147 Amity street, who has long been identified with tbe club and was ono of Its strongest workers. Mr. Lacey received but eight votes less than Mr. Lee. This defeat seemed to prey upon his mind and Wednesday he began to oot queerly. His wife did all she could to soothe him, but her efforts were of no avail aud he finally became so excited that It was necessary to send for outside assistance. 8ome of Jir. Lacey's neighbors were summoned and two. attendants from the Long Island College Hospital at tho corner of Amity and Henry streets, were engaged to watch tho patient, who had by this time become very violent He soemed to think that ho was pursued by the devil, and the mania took tho form of a religious craze. Duriug the attacks he would deliver long homilies on the subject and Anally work hlrasolf up Into a paroxysm. Several physicians were callod and after examining Mr. Lacey pronounced him temporarily Insane. Both tho physicians and friends of Mr. Lacey advised his wife to send him to an asylum, and finally she was prevailed upon to allow him to bo removed. Thursday evening ho was taken to Bloomlngdale. Mrs. Lacey was very reluctant to pursue this course, as she thought If her husband came out again cured he would never forgive her. Mr. Lacey Is a heavily built man, woighlng about 230 pounds, and for this reason was more difficult to manage. For years he has betn prominently connected with Domooratlo politlos In Brooklyn. He was a leading member of the St Patrick's Society, and was upon the Fifth Rapid Transit Commission, which was recently dissolved. This is not the first time he has boen seized with a similar attack. During the Hancock campaign he was a very active worker and nearly wore himself out stumping for Hancock. The Democratic defeat was a groat disappointment to htm, and he became insane and Jumped out of a second story window. Ho was confined In Bloomlngdale for a weok and then brought home and nursed, by hla wife until his recovery was apparently perfect Since that recovery he has lived most happily with his family, and attended to his business of commission salesman for Calcutta goods. Mr. Lacy is a very popular man and has a host of friends, who will sympathize warmly with his wife In her affliction. His cose Is not considered incurable, and a few weeks of rest and quiet will probably entirely restore him. He has three children. TESTING NEW FI11E ENGINES.

The text of the veto Is as follows : To the Honorable the Board of Supervitort of Kingt County : Gkntlbsiek At the meeting of the Board held November 18, a resolution was adopted, by the termB ot which the position of engineer to the ventilating apparatus at the Court House was abolished, and the services of the engineer In charge dispensed with, and at the same meeting It was resolved by unanimous vote to omit tbe purchase of any coai supply for this superfluous apparatus. These resolutions being in acoord with the recommendations I had previously made to the Board were approved by me In due course. At the meeting held November 24 the resolution first uanioil, by which the position was abolished, was reconsidered by a vote ot the Board, and I have now to decide whether I shall br my approval glvo otfoct to this vote, reconstitute the position and re - lustate the engineer. I am unable to see any reasons to change tbe position I have already taken In regard to tbls matter, whioh is fully set forth In my communication to tho Board, read September 23, and I therefore disapprove the resolution and file objections, as requlrod by law. Thojo I will agalu brletly state: The position has become a slnocure, but its maintenance costs the county about $1,500 a year. The apparatus Ib not needod for the purpose of ventilating the room of the Board. This much is admitted, and I am of the - opinion, moreover, that we Bbail get all the ventilation that is bealtbful from the watchful press of the city and from publia opinion, now more than usually alert and sensitive to the doings of public officials. Nor is the apparatus needed, as is claimed, to heat tho rooms of the Board. Thexe rooms wero properly heated before tho apparatus was put In, and I havo beon Informed by the Superintendent of Construction and Repairs that it will cost but a few hundred dollars to reconnect with the regular pipes whlcb heat the Court House, so inat our rooms and the ones about them can be bealed the samo as before tbe so called ventilating apparatus was introduced. Since, therefore, tho machine is not needed either for heat or ventilation, the only object of lis continuance will be hold by tho putlic to bo to enable an engineer to draw a salary for morely nominal and certainly superfluous services. I appreciate and respect the motives whioh have influenced tbe vote of some members of tho Board in relation to tbls matter; but mere persoual or party obligations must yield to tho publlo Interests, aud, as I am unable to look upon thlB position as other than a flagrant slneoure, opon and practically confessed, 1 can rccoguizo no duty but that of assisting the Board In suppressing It and doing It now. Itospectfully, JOHN A. QOINTAHD, Supervisor at Large. Brooklyn, Novomber 30. The majority forrescindlng was too small toadmlt of overriding. Aud Mr. Qulntard said this morning that the resolution appoiuting Armstrong, passed In February, 1886, though fixing the terra for one year, was unauthorized by law and was subject to termination any time. Just as it was created, by resolution of the Board. Therefore Mr. Armstrong Is gone. A FLATBUSM OYSTER CASE Which is Regarded with n Great Deal of Interest.

THEY ELOPED And Outwitted an Unwilling Father. A Brooklyn PhysJclan'a Secret Marriage. The Husband a Son of a Well Known Bank President - An Affair Which Will Cause a Flutter in Social Circles. A novelty in the form of an elojjement by parties fa high social position occurred in a Long Island village yesterday afternoon. The lovers are Dr. Warren C. Sneden, of 131 Prospect place, and Miss Mary Dlm'on, of Jamestown, L. L Dr. Sheden Is the son of Warren & Bneden, president of the Metropolitan Savincs Bank In New York City. Miss Dtmon is the daughter of Mr. Franklin Dlmon. The Sneden family have a Summer residence In Riverhead. It Is the handsomest place In the village and was formerly ' owned by Assemblyman Morey. Tbe Dimon family have an elaborate establishment at Jamosport, on Feconio Bay, where they live throughout the year. Dr. Sneden left the Flatbush avenue Depot yes - terday morning, at 8 :30 o'clock. He bought a tloket for Riverhead. He did not In the least look like a gentleman contemplating matrimony. The mall train on which he was a passenger arrived at Riverhead a little before coon, and, alighting, the doctor registered at the Griffins House, whioh Is directly opposite the County Jail. He lunched on wild dock, mince pie and milk while a messenger hurried to tho Snellen Homestead to order the family carriage. It arrived In good season, the man on the box appeal log somewhat distinguished In a livery of olive green cloth. "To Jamosport," said Dr. Sneden as he Jumped nimbly In and drew a wolf robe up ovor his knees. Down at Jamesport, which Is six miles east from Riverhead, a really beautiful lady was expecting a gentleman visitor, and he did not disappoint her. At the usual time, after lunch, Miss Mary Dlmon tripped lightly from the house and took her usual course to the post office. She did not return home by tho same route, nor at oll, in fact She took from the office but a single letter and that was for herself. It bore the Brooklyn postmark and the superscription was in a scrawling hand. She broke the seal hurriedly and scanning the letter as she walked took the footpath along the Bandy highway and proceeded rapidly , in the direction of Riverhead. Five mlnutos or so later Dr. Sneden's carriage drove up and the coachman turned the horses suddenly. The doctor alighted and after embracing Miss Dlmon mosKalnsotlonately assisted her Into the vehicle The dr,lve'back to Riverhead occupied less than half an hf uri - The lovers were receive In the parlors of the Griffin House, - without inviting the scrutiny of tho bystanders. Friends of Dr. Sneden were summoned to the hotel and from thence the party proceeded to the residence of the Episcopal clergyman, who tied the silken knot that makes two hearts as one. It was 8:15 o'clock when the minister pronounced Dr. Sneden and Miss Mary Dimon man and wife. The little company returned to the hotel, where an Informal reception took place. Later in the day Dr. Sneden telegraphed the fact of hia marriage to his father in Brooklyn, and a letter was dispatched to Jamosport to Inform the Dlmon family of tho important event . At 6 o'clock Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Sneden traveled by rail to Green - port and were guests at the Clark House last night This afternoon tho bride and groom went to New London, Conn., by the steamer Manhanset, and thoy expect to reach Brooklyn Friday or Saturday. A friend, referring to the newly married couple, said this morning: "They were stunningly handsome." Dr. Sneden lsast 30 years of age. He has hlaok hair and whiskers aud, with his gold rlbbod glasses adjusted, looks a thorough professional man. Miss Dimon is a beautiful bruuetto, of the purest type, and scarcely 20 years of age. A wod - dlug under the rather romantic clrcumstmces narrated Is said to havo been rendered unavoidable by the obstinate attitude of Mr. Dlmon, who restricted all of hla daughters in the matter ot male companionship and disliked extremely to see young gentlemen visitors at his house. "Miss Dlmon and my brother have been acquainted since tbolr ohlldhood," said a sister of Dr. Sneden to an Eagle reporter this afternoon, at 131 Prospect place. "They had tho same governess, aud you might say that we were all brought up together. We always spent our Summers at Riverhead and keep our horses there now. My brother has bees engaged to Miss Dimon since last July, and everybody know it Mrs. Dlmon was porleotly willing that the marriage should tako placo, but the father is rather eccentrlo and opposed it His principal objection was tbat he did not want his daughter to leave him, which she would do if she married. Ho had no porsonal objection to my brothor and was always very fond of him. He has another daughter, and he will not allow any young man to visit her. We all knew that thoy were to be married, but did not know Just where the ceremony would take place. They will be home tho latter port of tho weok and will meet a warm welcomo here. Miss Dlmou'a mother knew all about it and gave her consent to the secret marriage. She said that the young couple were fond of each othor and that they might aa well be married now as at any time."

Rumors that the Ax Has Not Ceased Fiill - insf Construction Department Laborers Who Were Appointed for Political Reasons the Present Victims. There was unusual excitement in the Navy Yard this morning because of the contemplated discharge of laborers from the Construction Department Numerous politicians of this city and New York wero worrying Constructor Pook and Chief Clerk 8utolIffe in tho interest of porsonal proteges and endeavoring to save them. Falling to learn the names on the black lists the politicians besieged the other departments in hopes of securing vacancies, but were again disappointed by learning that there was no money to Increase the force in any manner. The politicians we're all tho more active when they were given to understand that the discharges would be principally among the men who were employed Just before eloctlon, no because they were skilled workmen, but as a matter of patronage. Theso mon have done no work since they have been In the yard, but have had an Idea thoy were put there to draw their salary only.. Constructor Pook said this morning that ho coufd not tell positively whether the discharges would take place or not. If no letter came from Washington before night three hundred men could not return to work to - morrow. It was learned, however, that discharge lists had boen prepared immediately after tho department had Informally but positively refused to grant an oxtra appropriation. The excitement developed Into general consternation when it was rumored just before noon that nearly all the departments would lose part of their force and the number of men thrown out would exceed 500. Inquiry failed to verify the rumor although several officials said no one could tell what would come next Only eighty men remained In the Equip ment Department It wlU tako $6,000 to keep them through December, but Captain Whiting thinks he will get the money. James McCartney, who Is chairman of the Patronage Committee of the County Democracy, and who Is known to be well informed concerning affairs at Washlngton,was very busy among the departments to - day. It Is said he has over 100 men offected by tho discharges. He said: " The whole trouble has been caused by overdoing the thing. The officers In the yard took on entirely too many men Just before election. Hod they kept up the force three months longer they would have used up the entire appropriation which must last till July. Their action must cripplo the whole business of the yard until then. They have attracted the unfavorable attention of the Department The recent discharge of forty - three men in the Yards and Dooks Department, with tbe attendant circumstances, showing that it cost tbat department $4 to do sixty cents' worth ol work, has materially weakened the confidence of the Government in the management of this Navy Yard. It has proved that the mon put in before election do not do olght hours' work. The only romedy I can 600 Is for the lobar unions to look into the matter and sop that their members do some work for their pay. The restoration of the confidence of the Department rests with tho laborers. The local hoads of departments can not force work out of men who are put in for political reaaoua and they can only discharge wben tho appropriation gives out Some thing should be done at once or tho new steel cruiser will be built elsewhere. If the men want employment to continue and if more men noed employ ment, confidence must be restored at once." The list of the mon discharged from the Con struction Department, numbering about 300, was posted in tho yard this afternoon, the discharges to take place at 5:30 P. M. Enough men have been retained to finish the Richmond before Christmas as ordored by the Department at Washington.

Why an Eastern District Woman, After Thirty Years of Happy Married life, leaves Her Husband and Cliildren A Board Suit and a Counter Claim tha Res - iIt. Mrs. Mary Ellis, of 119 Suffolk street. New York, has commenced a civil suit in Justice Rhino - hart's Court, against Joseph Lewis, of 131 Deroa street, for t46, claimed for board for hU wife. Mr. Lewis makes a counter claim for $250, for the loss ol his wife's services. It appears that Mr. and Mrs. Lowls were married thirty - two years ago, and have a family of four children, the youngost of whom la 6 years old. Husband and wife lived happily together for thlr. ty years and their separation seems to havo been caused entirely because of Mrs. Lewis' prejudice against the pretty two story dwelling where she lived for thirteen years. Mr. Lewis is a cattle buyer for a Bushwlck drover.and three years ago decided on renting his house and moving Into a building nearer his placo of business in Bushwlck. The two tenants who occupied his dwelling neglected It, and at the end of a year he found that he was considerably out of pocket In making repairs and by the failure of a tenant to pay rent He then decided on again occupying tho building. He had It ronovatod and was about sending his furniture to it when his wife informed him that she would never CO back to it. He pointed out to her that tho house was their own and that It was a much nicer one and In a more desirable location than where they lived, but sbe waa obdurate and said that she was willing to live jvtth him In three rooms In a tenement, but back to" the Devoo street houso sho would never go. Mr. Lewis aud his two boys moved, but his wife and two daughters, aged 22 years and 8 years respectively, remained behind. Two months later the eldest daughter called upon her father and told him that sho had been married la the meantime, and that her husband, who had Informed her before the nuptials that ho was In receipt of 120 a week, only got $6 a week, and after a month deserted hor. Mr. Lewis gave her a home. His youngest daughter deserted her mother later and Is now living with her father. He is ready to receive his wife with open arms, and sho is willing to live with him, but not la . his present abode. Tbe caso will be called for trial at an early day. TOOLS STOLEN.
