Y., January 21. The Adjutant General's report shows continued improvement in tho National Guard and its condition excellent, though a few more organizations may have to bo disbanded. Ho speaks well of the rifle practice, which seems to infuse interest in the Guard, and says it will justify additional expenditures in that direction. During the past year ono division, one brigado, one regiment, two battalions, one battery and two separate companies of infantry have been disbanded, and one battalion, one separate troop of cavalry and twelve separate companies of infantry have been organized. The entire military force of tho State comprises seven divisions, thirteen brigades, ono regiment and twelve separate companies of cavalry, one battalion and two ...., - .. wtlmiM. of artillery and twenty - three regi ments, Bix battalions and thirty - one separate companies of infantry, in all 20,208 men.

This Senator Oakley denied, and offered to permit the insertion of a clause to prohibit the use of steam on tho road. The result was that the bill was pro - gressod. gentlemen in a sleigh to Coney Island. When they arrived at tholr destination Hudson was ordered to put up tho horse and eloign for awhiio, as they tntonaea to stay for an hour or so. While thoy wero enjoying themselves it turned out that Hudson drank very heavily, so much so that at two o'clock, when tho party wanted to return, ho was very much intoxicated. Ho managed to drive homeward, some how or another, although some of the gentlemon in tho party commented Mr JohnH Bergen reached Albany yesterdar, pretty freely on his condition.

They informed the officer how Hudson had Governor Hoyt's Inauguration. Harkisburg. Pa., January 21. trTO M Uovt was inaugurated Governor of Pennsyl - fhm morninc. to succeed Governor Hartronft. The city has been thronged with visiting clubs and - miii organizations for eomo days, and tho inaugural parade this morning was tho largest over hold in this city It was formed into nve grauu iuv., " comprising five brigades of the National Guards, Peun - aylvania, numbering about 5,000 men. The second, the Governor, the Governor elect, Lieutenant Goveruor, heads of departments and members of tho legislature, escorted by tha Washington Troop, of Chester County ; the third and fourth, tho various political organizations of the State, numbering over 3.000 men, and the fifth, the Firo Department of Harrisbnrg and visiting com - ThTlino was formed at 0:30 A.

Woodward, of tho Supreme Court. The inaugural address was then read and was f oliowed by the benediction and a national salute. The Baileau Defalcation Recalled, so that his Honor, who was One of the Bondsmen, may be Annoyed, in Retaliation for his Attacks upon the Modern Plunderers of the Treasury. The action of the Board of Aldermen yesterday, ordering tho Corporation Counsel to bring suit against tho bondsmen of ox - Col)octor Isaac Badeau, is considered hy many as a uiovo against omyui a. - retaliation for tho indictment of Flaherty and Bennett, the Mayor being ono of tho bondsmon. President Hay offered tho resolution, which was agreed to in caucus, but tho idea novor originated with him. There is a more cunning and experienced hand in this business and iu tho other retaliatory measures that have recently been introduced in tho Board, than lUy's. Ho is but the mere instrument that is being used to carry out the designs of a few craftier men, whoso aim it is to bo unknown iu these movements. Flaherty is included in the little gang, but tho chief is believed to be the late Mayor Schroedor. The satellites of Flaherty openly say that tho proceedings against the Commissioners aro accepted as a w ar upon Schroedor, since thoy aro his political creatures, ..u that Schroeder will employ the means at his command to defend himself and his tools in office. It is no secret that Mr. Howell wenton Badeau's bond, and it is no secret that he is one of tho few who evinced a willingness, when called upon, to give anything to protect tho city against the ex - Collaotor's robbories. In April, 18fiS, during Badeau's second term, he (Badeau) filed a bond on which appeared as bondsmon tho nameB. of James D. Fish, John J. Studweli, John K. Pruyu, A. M. Wood and A. S. Wheeler. In December of the samo year ho filed a supplemental bond, the sureties being James D. Fish, John K. Pruyu, John J. Studwel), A. S. Wheeler, Thos. Cassidy and Jas. Howell, Jr. When Badeau's defalcations camo to light, an examination was made and it was ascertained that his indebtedness to the city amounted in tho aggregate to about $08,000. In tho settlement before the Law Committee of the Common Council, he agreed to turn over aU his property, with tho exception of a uouso iu which Min. Badeau had an equity of $4,000. "'There was collected from what ho did turn over, tho sum of about S3fi,000, leaving a deficiency of botween$20, - 000 and $30,000. In the proceedings bofore the Law Committee, tho question was raised as to whether or not, tho settlement with Badeau would relieve tho bondsmen. The committee took the responsibi.'ity of setting with Badeau and no demand has since been mado on tho bondsmen. Messrs. Studweli and HowoU at that time expressed themselves willing to como to the front. In introducing the resolution yesterday, Kay artfully suppressed tho names of the bondsmon in order that tho measure might not appear as of a political character. It was unanimously adopted, and to - day tho friends of tho indicted Commissioners were grinning and saying what a smart thing Kay did yesterday. In this connoction the proceedings of tho Board of Aldermen upon this subject yesterday afternoon will be found of interest. INCREASE OF SALABY. William E. Chapman, a Republican politician and Secretary of the Eleventh Ward Association, is omployed as a clerk in tho office of Superintendent of Sowora, M. J. Dady. Ho 'Jias been receiving a salary of $1,000 a year, but this morning, Flaherty and Bennett increased tto $1,200. Bofiuott discovered that a few hundred dollars of tho salary account remained, so ho put a portion of it on Chapman's salary, to increase his zeal in behalf of tho party. JUDGE MORRIS ON THE WARPATH. Flaherty and Bennett in ait Awkwari Predicament A iTIove to Indict Them for malicious Trespass Suit for Damages to be Instituted. The Siamese twins of the Board of City Works, Commissioners Flaherty and Bennett, aro again in trouble. In the arbitrary exorcise oi cnoir autuorny they have run afoul of ex - Judge Samuel D. Morris, who j intends bringing them up with a round turn. He has inaugurated legal proceedings of both a civil and criminal character against them and intends to procure, if i possible, their indiotmeut by tho Grand J ury. Judge Morris appears in tho proceedings as counsel for Nicholas Lynch, who keeps a produce store at No. 152 Grand street, in the Eastern District. Tho store occupied by Mr. Lynch is one of a row of old fashioned buildings, erected about thirty - five years ago. The stores have bay show windows which extend twenty - three iucheB over tho sidewalk. About a month ago Mr. Lynch received from tho Board of City Works a notification that his window was an obstruction to the street, and that it would have to lie removed. Surprised that his store should ho singled out as tho only one in tho block to bo disturbed ho went to the City Hall and laid tlie matter before Mayor Howell. Meanwhile tho Board of City Works had notified the Corporation Counsel that the window was an obstruction, and legal proceedings were commenced BEFORE JUSTICE WALSH to compel its removal. Inquiry showed that the window did not obstruct tho thoroughfare, and that there wero many like it in the street which it was not sought to disturb. Tho Mayor recommended that no f urtlier action be taken in tho matter, and on his rec - mmendatiou the proceedings were discontinued. A little over a week ago tho following notice was placed on the minute hook of the Hoard of City Works : On motion tho Superintendent of tho Bureau oi streets was directed to remove tne oostruciion ouurauu street, in front of No. 152, caused by the show window projecting into the streot iu violation of the city orm - Btand by. The bill is essentially the same as that of started to the Tenth Precinct Btation House last year, providing that tho assessment for tho im - mJdM a compUunt agabast him. Officer Clark fol - nrovement shall be laid upon tho whole county, to be owei bim to tho stable, and as soon as the sleigh and v . horso ware taken care oi arrested him. JuBtice Bloom paid in twenty annual paymauw. The Senate and Assembly had their Senatorial elec tions. The Republicans, without exception, voted for Itoscoe Conkling, and tho Democrats for William Dorsheimer and two Greonbackors for Peter Cooper. Tho Governor's Message was considered in Committee of the Whole to - day, and Senator Pomeroy made a fierce attack upon tho Governor, and especially upon his Excellency's recommendation to suspend for tho present work upon the Capitol. He made a demagogical effort to array the laboring classes against the Governor. BESOICTTONS. By Mr. Fish - That tho Knickerbocker Life Insurance Company report within ten days in detail tho loans adopted. Mr. Flynn introduced a resolution that the Bank Superintendent report tho exact condition of the Manhattan Savings Institution, Now York, and tho nature of the legal proceedings instituted therewith.

Mrs. Schlerinfirer, at about oleven o'clock this forenoon, left her i year old daughter in the front room of her residence, No. 642 Third avenue, while she went to a neighboring store to purchase some groceries. During the absonco of hor mother, tho light clothing of tho little girl came in contact with the stove and took fire, and on her mothor's return she was enveloped in flames, which were not extinguished before she was bo severely burned that her life is despaired of. Dr. Potter was called in to attend tho child, but ho entertains no hope of hor recovery. BltnGLARfES. Two burglaries were reported last night at the Thirteenth Precinct Station, involving a total loss of nronertv to tho value of $140. Tho residence of Mr. John H.

Mr. Brooks called up his resolution offered last week, direotiug the Committee on Cities to report a proper remedy to remove tho abuse of tho extravagant salaries of the officers of the inferior courts in New York. Mr. Stratum said he desired to amend the phraseology of the resolution. It Bays "abuses existing in those courts," and he did not think it proper to make that charge without evidence to that effect. He then proceeded to say that as the people had changed their offl - nnttinff out Tammany representatives and putting anti Tammany ones, tho proposition is now made to A Sudden Panic Among the Employes.

Mr. Brooks said ho wanted the gontioman to understand that he could offer no resolution tending to re duce public expenditures in Now York, which ho would not vote for no matter whether it affected Tammany Hall or Anti - Tammany. Ho wanted mm to unueim that he was no man's man, and that he wore the livery of neither Tammany Hall nor any other hall. SEA.OO.!,. Terrified Women Jumping from the Win dows to Save Their Lives All bnt Two of Them Escape Without Any Injury A loss of Over 7,000. The large three story brick building at Nos. 9 and 11 Tiffany place, is occupied by the American Caroot Lining Company, who generally give employ ment to about thirty persons, most of whom are women. The first floor is used for the storage of cotton, of which from twenty - five to thirty bales are usually aopi on the premises. The second and third floors are used for manufacturinff purposes, and on each there are several pioce3 of heavy machinery. The only approach to the upper floors is by a single, narrow stairway, which runs to the top of the building. This factory was, yesterday afternoon, the scene oi AN ALARMING ITRE which not onlv came near totally destroying the build ing and its contents, but at one time placed the Uvob of several of the employes in imminent peril.

Technical Objection He Questions the Power of the Court of Oyer and Terminer to Send the Case Back to the Sesslous The Case Set Down for Trial for the Third Monday in February. The case, of the indicted Commissioners of City Works came up again to - day, this time in tho City Court. The Eagle yesterday announced the transfer of the indictment for conspiracy, upon which Messrs. Flaherty. Bennett. Milne and Dady are indicted, from the Court of Oyer and Terminer, by Judge Pratt, back to the Court of Sessions, where tho indictment was originally found. This was done because tho oourt calendar of the Circuit Court, where Judge Pratt is sitting, is bo crowded with causes ready for trial that ho has not the time to attend to oriminal business which would involve a long trial, as the case in question un doubtedly will. For this reason Judge Pratt Bent tne case back to the Court of Sesssons. Assistant District Attorney Wernberg then moved in the last named court, before Judge Henry A. Moore, to transfer the case to tho City Court for trial, ine mo - tlon was granted, and tha cause thus came into the City Court, where it camo up this morning. The cauBO was moved from the Court of Sessions for the reason that Judge Moore is engaged in tho trial of jail cases, brought iu by the current Grand Jury. In tne majority of instances the accused are confined in the County Jail, and justice as well as humanity demands that they Bhould be accorded a trial without delay. Judge Moore also has the civil business of the County Court to attend to, and ha? no colleague. His oourt 1b, therefore, crowded with civil and criminal business. The City Court has ouly its civil calendar, and has three judges. And as District Attorney Catlin was anxious to secure the speedy trial of the Commissioners' case he moved it into the last named court, where it could be heard and disposed of at an early day. THE ABOUMENT. The case came up this morning in Part I., of tho City Court, before Chief Judge Joseph NeilBon. After the call of the day calendar, District Attorney Catlin addressed the Court : Gen. Catlin We understand that your Honor wiU be willing to try the case of the CommiCBionors of City Works. I desire to move tho case for trial, and the matter is before your Honor for argument as to fixing a day for the trial to begin. Mr. Jesse Johnson, who appeared for Commissioners Bennett and Flaherty, asked to be sworn upon an affidavit which he presented to the Court. Ho was sworn and then said: If your Honor please, the case is here on a motion to set the case down for trial ; no plea has yet been made in thiB Court to the indictment. The plea was made before the Oyer and Terminer whore the case once was. Gen. CatJin It that is th8 trouble we will have the Commissioners brought before the Court to plead. Mr. Johnson That is just the point where we ob - Gen. Catlin They plead to the Indictment and not to the Court. Mr. Johnson then started to read the affidavit which he presented, but Genoral Catlin said he would admit the facts it contained. They were simply a recital of the steps that had thus far been taken in tho case that tho indictment had been found in the Court of Sessions, thence transferred to the Court of Oyer and Terminer, from there sent back to the Sessions, and thence to tho City Court. Mr. Johnson I submit that the case being in the Oyer and Terminer there is no authority for sending it back to the Sessions. There may be such a statute, but I have been unable to find it, or any precedent for tho action in sendiug the cause back to the Sessions, when it had been moved from the Sessions to the Oyer and Terminer, and tho accused had pleaded to the indictment in that Court and isBUe joined. It certaimy cannot be done by any statute that I have been able to find. THE POINT is that the case having been moved from the Sessions to the Oyer and Terminer, there is no authority to send it back to the Sessions. I find that tho Legislature passed a general statute giving this power to the Supreme Court in New York to send a case out of the Oyer and Terminer after it has been transferred to that court, but I cannot find any statute applying tuat case eisewuero. ; Judge Neilson The point is, then, that the case being in the Oyer and Terminer it cannot bemoved out. viuat j difference does it make where the case is tried? General CatUu Tho p'.ea to the indictment and the argument and disposal of the demurrer is not the trial of the case, and does not begin the trial. Judge Neilson Tho trial of a case is not begun until the jury is impaneled. Tho demurrer goes simply to tho sufficiency of the indictment, and is not a part of the trial. , . Mr. Johnson I cannot find the power to remove the cause the second time. Judge Neilson You objected before the Supreme Court: You raised the question there, and there it was passed upon. r k. Toh,.0nt,Thnrn in nnthoritv for sending a case from one Court to another, but when there it muBt stay. I admit that this Oourt nas tue power, uuv mo wi Terminer has not. At least, I have not been able to find the statute under which it can be done. I do not say there may not be such a statute, but I have not been able General Catlin I am willing to stand upon the authority that oxists for sending a case from one court to another - from tho Oyer and Terminer to the Sessions, aud from the Sessions to the Oyer and Terminer. It is dono at every Term oi tne uouri.. .,, Mr. Johnson said ue wouia mo m ouuiiu. o j. - upon'the question he had raised. Judgo Neilson - That can be dono. Meanwhile, as you are all here, yon may as well Berths upon a day of trial, subject to tho disposal of your motion.

The President will either veto the bill providing for the payment of arrearages of pensions or send a message to Congress recommending an increase of taxes to raise revenues sufficient to meet tho immense draft upon the Treasury which the execution of the Pension bill will cause.

Secretary Sherman says that the amount cannot be drawn from the Treasury without endangering the success of resumption. The Potter Resolutions. Washington, January 21. Immodfatoiy after the reading of the Jonrnal (which occupied an hour), Potter, of New York, called up for action the resolution presented by him yesterday, directing the Committee on.the Investigation of Election Frauds, to inquire into the cipher dispatehes, and appropriating $10,000 to defray the expenses of such inquiry. Mr. Butter, of Massachusetts, opposed the resolution on the ground that Congress had no jurisdiction over the private correspondence of anybody, and he was a private man who held no public position. Beside Congress should not take part in the Blander of any publio man to satisfy the curiosity of anybody in the House or out of it. Mr. Butler continued his opposition to the resolution. The result of appropriating he money for the investigation would be to Btir np something which had better not be seen or felt or smelt.

The Game by Which he was Made to Dis gorge A Very Much Interested Third Party who Makes the Discovery and Desires to Share In the Recovered Spoils. A Story Which will Interest the Propri - etors of Liquor Stores. Mr. Charles J. Fisher, a wealthy resident of Bedford avenue, Eastern District, is the ownor of two largo liquor stores on South Btreet, corner of Boosoveit, and on South street, corner of James slip, New York, and of the buildings in which tlie business is conducted. Two weeks beforo last Christmas a Brooklyn man, with whom Mr. Flster is acquainted, introduced to him a stranger, Edwin A. Weed, whom the man represented as his brother. After some general conversation Mr. Weed oxpreascd a desire to have a private chat on business with Mr. Fisher. Whon tho two men had seated themselves in a room in the rear of tho Boosevelt street store, Mr. Weed cast mysterious glances around the apartment, looked Mr. Fisher straight in the face and astonished him with the information that he (Fisher) was the owner of a considerable sum of money ho knew nothing about. Mr. Fisher was, naturally enough, Bur - prised and requested his informant to explain himself. Weed said that he had no explanation to give until Mr. Fisher mado him a proposition. Mr. Fishor inquired what the monoy consisted of, whether real estate, personal property or cash. Weed answered that it consisted of one of tho three, but he refused to tell which. Iu answer to further questions he said that the sum reached several thousands of dollars, but he refused to name tho precise amount. Mr. Fisher explained that it would bo impolitic In him to mako a proposition whon ho knew nothing of the money or tho amount. Ho was prepared to listen to any terms which Week might offer. Weed promptly proposed to give him $500 If ho signed over all IiIb right aud title in tho money. Mr. Fisher said that whatever the claim of tho amount of monoy might be, he would sooner lose it altogether than sell it for $500. Weed left shortly after without imparting any further information. Two days later Weed called agan and asked Mr. Fisher if he was prepared to entertain the proposition. The answer was a curt "No." He then requested Mr. Fishor to make an offer, but ho refused, unless ho was made acquainted with the nature of the claim. Weed replied that it consisted of cash. He withdrew his former proposition and offered to restore the money if he was given two - thirds of the amount. No conclusion was arrived at, and whon Weed called again, he asked Mr. Flshfir to name some lawyer with whom he could negotiate. Counselor Phil. Hathaway, of the firm of Bogart & Hathaway, Grand and; Essex streets, was named. Weed secured the services of a Broadway lawyer and NEGOTIATIONS WEEK OPENED. his smartness in having been able to "knock down" so much money. He mentioned the names of bartenders of his acquaintance who "knocked down" quite u much. Some of tho clerks whose names Tienken thoughtless! montionod are boing watchod.

Although Mr. Weed fulled to fulfill hi contract, ho demanded his share of the monoy rocovorod. Finding he could dispense with the servicei of his lawyer, ho addressed a note to Mr. Fishor, demanding his share of tho restored plunder, and warning him by inference against giving his counsel any portion of it.

Weed doclined the offer, and threatens to resort t'o legal means for the recrrvery of 37j per ceiit. of tho money obtained from tho bartender. His lawyer, too, ha3 something to Bay in the matter.

John Goeter, a man over fifty years of ago, and who resided at tho corner of Lewis and Grand Btreetfl, in the Town of Flatbush, committed Buicide last night by taking a dose of Paris green. Mr Goeter was employed to assist the sexton of the Dutch Reformed Church, at Flatbush, and used to blow the organ there on Sundays. Ho had a wife and two children, and because of late he has not been able to earn much money duriDg the week, he became very despondent, as ho had been a man of careful habit, but had recnntlv to draw upon what little money he had saved. 'rho irlM of his beine Btill further depressed in a pecu niary sense worked upon his brain to such an extent hk iif lieeome unbearable. He frequently spoke of the fact that he might become penniless ana tnat ne ana ms fnmilv would starve. His vrtfo triea to cneer mm up, ii without Buccess. Yesterday afternoon he went' to the drug Btore at the of filarkson Btreet and Flatbush avenue, and purchased a couple of ounces of Pails green.

The poison ivn to him and he wsb cauuonea to no careiui to leave It lying around the house. He Bald that he ii attend to that, paid for the material and left. In the early part of last evening he swallowed the greater portion of tho Paris green, dui iub until a few hours after, when THE POISON BEGAN TO ACT upon him, and ho was compelled to complain of the tor - - 1,. n!n that he experienced in his stomach. His wife asked him what the matter was but he said he dia not know, and even at cms nw mu w - atcian sent for. Shortly after this Goeter commenced to vomit green matter, and then it was apparent wn " had done. Messengers once dispatched to Drs. Bartlett and ZabriBkle, but when these gentlemen arrived tho poison had so thoroughly eifocted Gooter's system, that neither tho stomach pump nor the usual antidotes were of any avail, and he died about 11 o'clock. Coroner Simms was unofficially notified of the fact by Mr. Wm. H. Burrill, the undertaker of Flatbush avenue, but as he had an inquest to attend to thiB afternoon, ho will not reach this case until this evening or possibly to - morrow morning.

He stated he was a carpenter by trade and willing to work, but he had bean unable to find employment. During the Fall he had worked for Mr. C. L. Johnson for a aouar a aay, and of course hod not saved any money. The; people he had boarded with could not well afford to feed and Bather than go begging ma oreaa among more asserts that ho took Kendrick's word for it, that Johnson had approved them. Therein, it is claimed, lies the false pretense. Mr. Johnson and Mr. Skidmore both contradict Kendrick on every important point. KENDBICK F0BTHEK EXPOSED. "Kendrick denies that he is your debtor for $250 Mr. Johnson, aud says that if he were you have ample security in your stable in tho form of an imported bull belonging to him." Mr. Johnson Mr. Kendrick Is owing me a good deal for advertising and horse and cattle keep. Thobnllin my Btable 1b not worth $50. Whon I pressed him for tho money, he gave me a $500 bond to hypothecate, tho difference to be returned to him. This is tho bond. Mr. Johnson drew trom his pocketbook a green and white bond, the Blze of a dollar bill, of the Real Estate loan and Truet Companyj Washington, D. C. "That," resumed Mr. Johnson, "he represented to be worth ten above par, but I knew It was worth no more than waiste paper two cents a pound." Knnrlrick. in his statement, to show that he had ::q in tention of defrauding Mr. Skidmore, said he offered him a note secured by real estate, and that was true, but During the several meetings held between the lawyers and the principals, Weed refused to accept less than 45 per cent, of the money recovered. By skillful questioning, Counselor Hathaway elicited enough information to lead him to suspect that it was some person in Mr. Fisher's employ who had Btolon the monoy from him. This waa on tho Friday preceding Christinas. Hathaway aud Fisher winked and nodded and came the mysterious dodge on Weed to impress him that they knew the secret. Weed stoutly maintained that they were on tho wrong track, but he nevertheless camo down to 40 per cent. Mr. Fisher offered him 37 per cent, at the start. Tho following morning (Saturday), Fisher and Hathaway met Weed and his lawyer in tho lattcr's office, by appointment; Weed consented to accept the 37; per cent., and an agreement was drawn up and duly signed. BOBBED OF NINE THOUSAND DOILAK8. Wood then said that one of Mr. Fisher's bartenders had robbed him of $9,000 that thoy could lay their hands on, aud probably $3,000 more could bo recovered. When asked for the proof that tho money had been stolen, ho said that a dotective of the regular force would furniBh it tho noxt morning. He further stated that a woman who hold tho bar tender's bank books, which showed $5,000 to Ilia credit, would surrender them to tho detective. Thoy could soizo $4,000 elsewhere certain, and perhaps $9,000. He gavo the namo of the bar tender as Charles Tienken. Mr, Fisher was dumbfounded. Tienken had been in his employ for seven years, and ho was a man who uovor drank or absented himself from work for a single day. He frequently criticised the other bar tenders and won dered how they could afford to dress so well and spend plenty of money. Henkeu iras as regular as clock work in his work, and was industrious and attentive to customers. A few weeks bofore the dis - closuro Mr. Fishor mado up his mind to Btart him in business on account of his faithfulness, and as au In contivo to his other clerks to follow Tioukon's example in that respect. His surprise can be imagined when ho was informed that his mode! c.erk was a thiof on an extensive scale. He knew that for a few years past there was a decrease in the daily receipts, but !io attributed tho decrease rather to the gonoral depression of tho times than to dishonesty on tho part of his employe. After getting this information from Weod and his lawyer Mr. Fisher and his counsel wont to the Boosevelt street Btore. Charley was absent. It was an un - tiBuai circumstance. When Mr. Fisher was informed that Charloy had left a few hours beforo to see a friend off to Gormany on a steamer which sailed that day from Hobokeu, ho immediately ordered a carriage, and, with his lawyer, was quickly driven to Hobokon. When thoy reached there the steamer had just left. "The bird has flown," exclaimed Mr. Fishor and his lawyer in one breath. After eating dinner and calling upon a few frieuds they wont to the Roosevelt street store. There was Charloy before thorn emiiing and attentive to cus tomers. Mr. Fisher checked an incipient exclamation of surprise, and instead spoke in a familiar way to Charley. After a while Hathaway and himself retired to a rear room, and consulted. Hathaway was in favor of - arresting Charley right away, hoping that ho would confess .when in the handB of the police. Mr. Fishor decided to wait until next day, Sunday, whon Weed promised to furnish the proofs of tho robbery. Neither Weed nor Hathaway put in an appearance on Sunday. It was Charley's day off, and Mr. Fisher was on tho anxious seat. To requost him to remain iu tho store all day would bo to arouse his suspicions, and it was but too apparent that ho suspected there was something up in reference to himself. Consequently Mr. Fisher decided on allowing Charloy to take his day off, but under the surveillance of a friend. Bright and early next morning Cuarley was behind the bar. Mr. Fisher was in New York Drignt ana eany, too, but not at the store. Ho was in Weed's lawyer's offlco, in company with Mr. Hathaway. Weed failed to furnishany of the proofs ho prstenaoo to nave. Beiinec the DETECTIVE NOB THE WOMAN WITH THE BANK BOOK wis there, nor could Weed oven tell whore Charley had his money deposited. In a word, Weed knew nothing but Some Interesting: Facts nhicli were Brought to Light at the Coroner's Inquest. Last evening Coroner Henry C. Simrus, M. D., hold an inquest at tho County Hospital, at Flatbush, upon a woman named Mary Bromley, who died from exposure on Sunday night last. Mary bad no known residence, but was in the habit of traveling about from house to houso in the Town of Flatbush and stasiug a day or two in each place. She waa well known, and there wore plonty of people who were always willing to ( give hor lodging and food, Bho in return doing somo I odd jobs about tho houso. 9he was on Irishwoman, a I widow, about 50 years old, and vory much addicted to liquor. She was frequently seen in the streets in a con dition of intoxication that mado locomotion difficult and at times impossible. The following facts concern ing her and her death are taken from the evidence given beforo Coroner Simms, with the simple exception that . they are presented here in narrative form and not given j iu the less interesting Bhapo of testimony. ! On Sunday afternoon, at five o'clock or so, Mr. Daniel Kernan, who lives in Flatbush, saw Mary in East New York avenue. Tho suow was very deep there, and Mary was somewhat under the influence of liquor. Sho , carried iu hor hand a tin pail containing lieer, and Ker - 1 nan, as he passed her, asked her where she was going. "Oh," sho replied, "never mind me, I'm going to tho woke to - night to have a good time !" , THEBE WAS A WAKE rN PROGRESS at a house in William street, Flatbush, aud where n man I named Lennox lay dead. This was the wake Mary referred to. About half - past ten o'clock that night the samo Kernan, who met Mary in tho afternoon, together with a friend named Deviue, wero ou their way to sit up all night at Lennox's bouso. Whon going through Albany avenue, between Collins aud Webster streets, they saw tho form of a woman lying in the snow, which was very deep at that point. Going to the spot they , discovered that the woman was Mary Bromley, who was j no doubt ou her way to the wake whou sho became exhausted and fell, for tlie house where Lennox's body ay was distant but a stone's throw. Kernan said, "Mary, what are you doing hero ?" The mou could we that her lips moved, but sho was too much exhausted to mako herself audible. They found that hor feet were bare, she having on neither shoes nor stockings. 3fr. Kernan asked Doviue to go for help, while he (Kernan) raised the frozen creature to a Bitting position, chafed her hands aud arms, and ondeavored by tho only means he had in bis power to arouse her. Devino, who started off for help, saw no one, and thought that tho best thing that could bo dono was to take tho woman to the house where tho wake was. Accordingly, he with Roman's assistance, lifted Mary upon his back, and carriod hor to tho Lennox house. Somewhat of a flutter was created among the sympathising mourners when they found out that Kernan and Devine wanted them to do something for poor Mary Bromley, and thoo of the mourning relative., vvlio wore in authority stopped any effort that might havo been In Mary's behalf by saying " ONE WAKE'S ENOUGH AT A TIME ; we don't want any lore people dying hero, so you had bettor take her somewhere oli." "But," pleaded Korn&n and Deviue, '".ct her rest a minute, and woil take her somewhere else." Those in tho house objected, and said that they might get into trouble if tho woman died on their hands, aud they had trouble enough already. Again Devino went for help, this time to tho Town Hall, where tho polico station is. Ono of the poiioemen accompanied Devino back to where Kernan and tho woman was and a couvoyanco being olitained sho was driven off to the County Hospital and there received by Dr. Schouck, the Superintendent. Shortly after her admittance the poor creature died. How she came to bo barefooted no ono seems to know. When first seen on Sunday she had shoes on, and an examination at the hospital showed that with the exception of her arms and legs ling unprotected the rest of hor body waB fairly clothed. Sho had been walking through the deep, untrodden Bnuw in all probability until tho became thoroughly exhausted by the freezing of her lower limlw. then she fell and !:e - Ing unable to rise sho waa saved from dying in tha suow only by thn merest accidont that of Keraan and Dovino going to tho wake aud passing tho spot where she lay. A )W9f mor(n examination showed that the internal organs were all congested to a very intense degree and that death had resulted from exhaustion proaucea uj cxpuo - ure. A verdict to this offect was rendered and Mary Bromley was placed in a coffin of roughly stained wood to - day and placed in Potter's Fio'.d. Another Effort to be Made by tho Advocates of the Scheme The IU - apiontinentj. Repairs to Armories and County Offices. Ou Thursday last the Board of Supervisore l,y a very decisive vote declined to acqu!e. - fO in a resolution providing for tho distribution of coal to the poor during the remainder of tho Winter. Tbt fight for it liai occurred at Flatbush on tha preceding day, when Hui'crvisor E;,'o!f succeeded ostensibly in calling for s f onus) re que. from the Coinmissonors for the adoption of tho resolution, but really in bringing abonl such a delay as would probably l fatal to tho scheme. Tho Commissioner I'l already hold their weekly meeting, aud Hoven days must elapse before Btich a request could lx) considered by them. The adjournment of th Board of Supervisors for two weeks involving another weok'n delay, would bring an opportunity for doctsivo action bo nearly to the oud of January, that it might well bo argued tint the worst part of tho Winter wis already gono. Tho friends of the mea - mro, however, were not slow to ceo the force of this, and an independent resolution calling for the transfer of tho hospital heating and ventilating fund to an account for coal distributing purposes, was offered. Its weakness Uy In the fact that all action of thi.i cliarscter by the Supervisors must bo preceded by a requisition from the CommiMioncni. Tho failure to receive this requisition Influenced tho vote of more than one Supervisor who favored the resolution, aud it was beaten. Notwithstanding this, however, the mutter is to be a?ain brought up, tht s Urns strengthened by the necessary requisition. At tho next meeti - ig of Uie Supervisors a resolution similar to the ono defeated last week will bo offered, and its advocates will bo armed with statistics purporting to thow that the private charitable organizations are utterly unablo to meet tho demands made upon them. THE REAPPOINTMENTS. It is scarcely probable that any action ill bo taken by tho Board noxt week in the matter of tho reippolnl - niont of its officials last December. One of the Democratic members is absent from the city, and nothing defluito will bo done before his return. There Is a manifest disposition, however, notwithstanding the legxi opinion., submitted by Messrs. Britten and Catlin, to ignore altogether the reappointments already made. TWENTY - THIRD EEOIMENT ABMOBY. The repairs and alterations to tho Twonty - third Regiment Armory have leon somewhat delayed by the inclement weather, tho transmission of heavy iron trusses which aro to be used being rendered impracticable. The alterations will cost the county about $7,000, and will probably lw completed three weeks banco. THE OATLINO BATTEBV. Superintendent of Construction and Repairs Naugh - ton is preparing specifications for altering and repairing the armory of this battery. He estimates that tha work will cost between three and four hundred dollars. THE COUBT HOUSE. ! Specifications are also being prepared for tho lamps which are to bo placed in front of tho Court House. They will lio similar to those which already set off tho front of tho new Municipal Building, and will be fur - j nbhed at an expense of about $300. THE SHEBIFP'S OFFICE. ' Tho interior of the Shoriff'B office is to lie remodeled and lte fittings generally to be rearranged. Superintendent Naughtou is preparing plans for tho erection and removal of partitions and for opening a door through tho main office into the corridor. This will render it more accessible to those who havo bustoees to transact with tho Sheriff, and Increase the conveniences generally. THE WOBK AT THE NEW JAIL. A largo force of mou are employed on tho site of tho wing of the now Jail, whore excavating operations havo beeu iu progress since the award of the contract. A STOLEN HOUSE BEl'OVEttED. Over four months ago, a valuable horse was Btolen from the stable of .Mr. John Hoppor, in Patereon, New Jersey, aud a lew weeks ago the ownor received information that it had been seen in this city, "Billy" Williams, ono of tho members of tlie detective squad, who is considered one of the best horse thief catcliora In tho country, was assigned to tho case by Superintendent Campbell, andye? terday "Billy" had the satisfaction of recovering tho horse, which was found in the possession of a man named Sherbeck, who, howover, had purched it at an auction sale in New York, in g'xxi faith.

Charley had confessed to him that he stole from Jf7 to $15 a day, tho amount being regulated by the day's receipts. Mr. Fisher was disappointed and disgusted, weed naa promiseu proot but he produced none. He left the ofHce ln company with Hathaway and rode in a carriage to tho Bowery Bank, where he was informed, in answer to questions asked the cashier, that Tienken had closed up his account there the previous Saturday and had withdrawn $1,500. Immodiate action wob decided upon. The hvwyerndvtsed Charley's arrest forthwith on a charge of larceny, assuring Mr. Fisher that thore wore sufficient grounds for suoh action without leaving himsolf liable in a suit for damages if tho charge miscarried. Mr. Fisher thought he would get very llttloof his money if the case got Into the bauds of the District Attornoy, so he determined on arresting Tienken on a civil suit. Judge Donohuo issued the necessary papers for tho bartender's arrest half an hour later. A deputy sheriff , Mr. Fisher and Hathaway went to the Roosevelt street Btore and Charley was taken ln custody. He at first protested his lnnoconco, but when tho affidavit waa read tohlm he broke down and requested a private conversation with his employer. m THEN CONFESSED to having stolen less than $4,000. He admitted h - ".ving withdrawn tho $1,500 from the Bowery Bank. Ha said he purchased a ticket for California aud was to have started tho previous evening, bnt he was too late for the train. Mr. Fishor was aware of that fact, for the man who was with Tienken delayed him on purpose and then told Mr. Fisher. Counselor Hathaway and the Deputy Sheriff wore called into the room and Honken made a confession. He handed over the ticket for Cali fornia, which cost him $135, and $335 to cash. He pro tested that the remainder or too i,sw, some e,iu, was stolen from him the previous night. Mr. Fisher told him that his story was improbable, aa his companion did not leave him until ho went to bed. Tienken asserted again and again that he had lost tho money. He said he had knocked down about $5 a day at an average. He professed ms wunngncBs to restore what money he had to the banks. He accordingly signed orders on the Hoboken, Union Dime ana o.a - rens' banks of New Yora to pay over um ujuuj lted to his credit to Charles J. Fisher. The total amount was f3,500.
