This was to notify the police how to man the cars. One policeman rude on the front anil one on the back platform of each ear. There was absolutely no disturbance along the Hue at any point, not even a hostile demonstration. The cars o.ily travoruc the Boerum street routs from Greenwood stables to the bridge. Since the warm words which passed between Inspector - McLaughlin and Mr. William J. lUch - ardson, the Inspector hai; insisted that all important communications from the Atlantic Avenue liailroad Company to himself Khali be in writing, and this is now being done to prevent mutual misunderstanding. An evening paper yesterday put the word "cop" in the mouth of Mr. William J. Itichardsou in place of "policeman." Mr. Itichardsou refused to hold further communication with the reporter lrho ho mis - quoted him. Inspector Moi.iugiilm Bail! he objected very strenuously to being called a "cop." lie did not know what the word meant, but had observed that it was invariably used by loafers who spoke in a slurring way of the police. The new drivers and conductors are rapidly retting over their nervousness, and passengers beginning to fill the ears again. One car in winch an EAOMJ reporter rode carried twelve passengers at one time and another carried ten, a greav, improvement on yesi.rday, when there were no passengers. Yesterday there were only eight trips made on the Boerum place line; to - day there are lorty - fivc to be made, which is another groat improvement. The strikers have disappeared from the streets aud men are now going to the Atlantic avenue railroad ofliee to apply for work in increased numbers. Unless the men who are out on strike do something soon their places will be tided. Then they will be confronted by this sentence from the manifesto Mr. Itichardsou i - suod immediately after the tie up: "New men who are put to work will not be discharged to make place for those who have left tne company's employ," Mr. William J. Itichardsou said this morning to an Eacle reporter: "That last sentence states our position exactly. Wo will not discharge the new men to make room fur the old ones. We are taking on more new men all the time aud we will begin in the early part of next week to operate Komo other line of our system. By the end ot next week we will have enough to man our entire syst - m. We have made no communication to our late employes other than that contained in the manifesto issued a week ago to - day. and wc will tend no communications to them. If they want to talk to us they will h ive to come to the company's olliee. We will not go to them. If thev want to talk to us they must talk directly. We will deal with our old men, but not with the Executive Coinmitto of 1). A. 75, li. of L. In ease the Hoard of Mediation and Arbitration arranges the meeting it brojecte 1 we will be present." Mr. William liichardson has a very severe cold He says that his father, the president, is convalescing fast and will be out of the house in the carly part of next week. No ears wilt be run to - morrow, Mr. William J. Richardson fearing for the peace of the Sabbath dav, so he declares. Inspector McLaughlin stated this morning that the Atlantic avenue liailroad Company only running one line was their own lookout. The police are ready to afford protection to all the lines. At the indignation me ting held in Moore's Hall, Fifth avenue and Twenty - third street, last night to express the wrath of property owners against Mr. Iliehardson for not running his ears there really were some properly owners present. The hall is the meeting room of the strikers themselves, aud the fact that they secured the hall and paid for the printing of the handbill. and solicited property owners to come and get indignant made the tiling look like a farce, especially in view of the fact that property owners on Fifth avenue have much to lure if the mob turns against them. Nevertheless there was some sincerity about the meeting. Mr. Philip eh. - Tr., as treasurer, received the following sums of money: John Coyne, liquor dealer al oil n Onion, coal H. V.

Send word by ( o'clock and we will come up immediately. Mr. l'.ichanlson cut off (ho signature and would not let reporters see it. There is no change in the outlook at the I'.ergen street stable; and one unacquainted witli the state of affairs would not be ware that there was tie up in that section of the city. Five men of Captain Folk's command are in charge and have nothing to do but kill time. A number of strikers, ten all told, occupied a position to - day on the sidewalk opposite tho stables and discussed, to them, the all important subject. They were quiet and orderly and when approached byauEaoi.n reporter they said they were willing to give what information they could. but had absolutely none to impart. Depot For. man lluddy is still taking care of the horses in the stable aud said that no attempt would be mad. to run a oar on the Bergen street line until the trouble was settled, one way or the other, at the down town stables. LITTLE CIIA.M.'K I.V XK1V YOliJf. Some Itoails Arn Itniiiiiii? Nclu - sluln Timo. Other S5cnm:it Sillo. There was little outward evidence of a strike in New York to - day. The Sixth avenue road sent out its first e.)' at 7 o'clock. It was followed by forty others, all running on schedule time. Twenty ears run tuCanal strei t ainltwenly run to Yescy street. This I. just one half the usual number of ears on this liic. F.aeh ear is accompanied by two policemen. They were not molested in any way. They make regular time and carry the u - ual number of pa - . - - tigers. Tie - o.'ie... ; i.' fbis company were crowded all the morning by applicants for positions. Tin: most desirable men were cm - ployed and oilier - turned . - may. Among iho applicants were many of the company's striking employes. Before their application - i b - considered they were r, - iiiired to ripnlVli. - - - i'vei plated button on their dollies having tie - name of the Sixth Avenue Huilroad Company on it; face, and to give up the k - ' - ys to their kickers whi'di tle - y carried away with them. After this coirse of sprouts was gone through with tie; e.. miiloyo appeared before the superintendent i:i l;ie capacity of a gret nborn and Irs ;rop!io;iliori was considered along with the other applicants, n some instances the old men Were tol l that they would not be taken back under any circumstances. Inspector Williams and Captain Warts were nt the depot this morning, as usual. They had about fifty men. From the big stables of the llroad'.vay line the first car started tit P o'clock. This was followed by others, four minute t apart. Each car has two policemen, two driv is aud two conductors. 'The company will run fifty ears on this line to - day. The total number when all are running is ISO. The last ear will !.e in at - J 1'. M.. when the stables will be closed. The ',i oadway line will not run cars on Sunday. The cars made regular round trijis and ne t with no trouble. Even the truckmen ceased to cry "Scab." Inspector Steers was on hand at the stables Ibis morning with 200 policemen to protect the new employes. He also visited all the . - aloons around the stables, and gave or - leix that strikers mu. - .t not I - iillowed to congregate or hung about these .tla'ces. Asa result of these rigid preventive measures the Fstrcets in the vicinity of the stables presented a Lnmetlook. Where the strikers kept themselves Id not be a. - ,c rtaincd. applicants for positions at the liroadway - rooming were unusually numerous. re looking young men were among those SSoyed. Before being given a car they were obliged to make one round trip over the road. They were then given a badge and a printed card, culled a catechism, which contains the rules of the company. This constitutes their entire education in running a street car. About eleven of the old employes have thus far applied to be reinstated. They were taken on. Five hundred new men have been employed so far. This is 000 short of the regular force. As flic day (,'i'ows older the number of applicants gets larger. At tho stables of the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth avenue roads it was stated that no cars would be run to - day. The employes of the Eighth aveuuo road were paid off this morning and discharged. An attempt to run cars on this line will bo mado on 3Ionday. Tho Ninth avenue company is doing nothing. 8iMmaiiaiaaafili - upon the Broadway itau - road at Bleeokcr street thia forenoon, and one of tho company's horses was killed. A passenger had his leg cut. Car No, 238 was coming up and Car No. 237 down Broadway. They met at Bleecker street. No. : 23 8 had a green driver on board. He turned his horses' heads to the wrong side mid the ear ran on tho Bleecker street switch full tilt into No. 237. Tho shock threw the passengers oil their feet and out of their seats. There were some seven or eight women among them, and they were greatly frightened. One passenger on the front platform of No. 237 limped away with a badly bruised leg. Tho platform of 237 was smashed, one of tho horses was caught between the cai'B and its leg broken in fivo places. The policeman who rode in the car as an escort shot it dead in tho gutter. In twenty minutes travel was resumed on the up track, but the down track was blockaded until a fresh team had been procured. Inspector Byrnes went to the Central Cross - town Company's stables at Twenty - third street aud Avenue A this morning with a squad of men to start the cars. Ten went out under police escort. At First avenue and Twenty - second street the first ran up against a hostile crowd. Bricks were thrown from the roofs of tin tenements on both sides of the street and things looked threatening when the inspector and his men cleared the street and scattered the crowd. At 11 o'clock Inspector Byrnes returned to Headquarters and reported fifteen cars runuiiiff, the road clear and the street quiet. Shortly before noon one of the cross (own cars was attacked at - Avenue C and Tenth street by a mob. 'The driver was pulled from the platform aud pretty badly treated. When news of the fracas reached Police Headquarters Superintendent Murray scut a squad of thirty - live men scurrying over. They dispersed the crowd and compelled one man to apply to a neighboring drug store for relief for a battered head. All was quiet about the Belt line stables during the morning. No cars were run. The following notice was posted on tho stable doors: Nkw Yoiik, February 2..1HS0. No applications from late employes will be regarded after Monday morning, when wo shall appoint conductors aud drivers. .Meantime applications will be reenived from any good men do - siring perm - incut employment. William N. A. H.uiuis. Superintendent. Tho following letter from the Mayor's secretary was written to - day: Ilaii. Sti'iiln - n 13. French, I'rcsiilPiil Iloanl or Vice; , , , , Hut I have the honor to acknowded ,'c, on behalf of the Mayor, the receipt of your communication in rcoly to my letter of January ,'JO, asking for a report with reference to tlu alleged tinng of revolvers by the police into the crowd at Carmine and Bedford streets, and to express his sat - iufnef ion with f he character of the renoi't. I'rom the facts stated it would appear that Patrolmen j Mliannaliah ami liurn - : are to ne commeimeu. u well for their moderation as their courage. I have the honor to be, very rc - quotl'iilly, T. O. T. Ckase, Secretary. A delegation representing the building trades section of Central Labor Union called on Mayor Grant this morning to ask for his intervention in preventing any future occurrence of police outrages on the alleged strikers. The delegation was composed of Messrs. James 1'. Archibald, Josiah B. D'.vyer and John J. Sullivan. They woe comfortably seated when the Mayor entered hisi)lice to begin the duties of the day. None of them left their seats to receive his Honor's salutations. The Mayor continued to stand, with his back against an olliee table, during the interview, which was of about ten minutes' duration, Mr. Dwyer presented to his Honor the following resolutions : Wirrt'ti.i, The present struggle of the car drivers of this city for a just remuneration for their labors and in resistance of a violation ot the ten hour law by the railroad corporations, tho police, under order - i from their superiors, have used violence such as no other civilized country cou.d U lcrate; and H'Aemi.N', A president ot one of the roads having ma te use of the expression that "They would crack the skulls of the so - called strikers," and an inspector of police having ordered the men to use their revolvers, ll seems that there is a conspiracy entered into by the railroad corporations in collusion with the police ollioials to provone breaches of the peace; ami , . ., . ., H7i i - eits, The police of tins city arc for the protection of life and property of the citizens generally and not for the purpose of intimidating law abiding eitixeus, or to aid private corporations in tlieir private speculations to crush laboring people and force dividends for stockholders. 'The resolutions were of considerable length and continued in nearly the same language to denounce the police, their superior officers, Commissioner McClave especially, and the police justice who lined August IMobar, secretary of the 'Bakers' Union. It wound up by suggesting that the railroads of the State should be operated by the Legislature. The Mayor after the reading suggested that the charges if they had any should be of a specific character. If the charges wore against policemen they should be made to tho Commissioners, and if the Commissioners wore complained of they could report speeilieally to him and he would forward thu complaint to them for explanation. The del - giition did not seem to feel satisiied with the result of their quest. About 2 o'clock the Belt Line Company started a car to make the circuit of its route. Tho ear was accompanied by police officers in a patrol wagon and by Inspectors Byrnes and Steers. A (JRAY HAlltiJI) OFFICE BOY, WIiobc Action Was Jnrtorsc.d by EoIicc Justice AVslIkIi. Oeorge Bretz, a smooth faced old man with white hair, watery eyes and a large nose, was on trial before Judge Walsh to - day on a charge of assaulting Sarah Chew, of 2J0 Jay street. Sarah sells p ipers. She had a little, stand, composed of a chair wilh a board on it, at Jay and Fulton streets from last August until the middle of last mouth. On January 1.1 at ts A. M Bretz, whose son is the agent of the property at Jay and Fulton streets, pushed Sarah and her stand away and told her to be gone forever. Sarah talked back and a crowd collected. Their sympathies were w ith Sarah aud on their advice she had lirctz arrested. His defense in court was that hi' bad a right to put her oil' the corner as the tenants objected to her presence. He said he pushsd her stand over and bis lingers got caught under (bo board, which Sarah promptly stood on as heavily as she could. "Do yon have charge of the 11 its'.' ' w is asked. "No. I am an office boy," he replied. 'There was a titter at the expense of bis gray hairs aud he explained that he assisted his son who was the agent for the property. Sarah showed a permit, to sell papers from Alderman Schlct - sci, dated January 1.1, the day of the assault. She said the Alderman rote her permit in last August but kept it at his olliee, telling her it - would be there il" she ever got - in trouble. After Bretz assaulted her sh ; weni to Schlusser and ho told her that the first permit was lod. He wrote her another. Judge V.'aldi discharged Brit, and took occa - ion to express a forcible opinion on the propriety of the Aldermen giving p rmits. Sarah's lawyer had just reminded him that the permit was sufficient under the statutes. "I don't caro about the statutes," said his Honor; "I don't care if there were fifty statutes passed in the Common Councils. It is preposterous to say that an Abler - man can give anybody a permit to put any obstruction in front of a house. If anybody were to put an obstruction ill front of my house, no matter by whoso authority, if it came from half a dozen Aldermen, I'd remove it, no mailer if the tenants permit or sanction an obstruction. The. public has a right to have it removed, if they, the public, complain against it." SENTENCES I.V THE SESSION'S, t'nuislsmollt lUetoil Out to OSEon tlci'H Afr.'litist liic taiv.

GRIFFIN DENIES That Graveyards Pollute Our Water Supply. A Sfec.f (leant Hint from Hie Health - Commissioner to Those Who Drink Highly Charged Effervescent Waters, In the Eaoie of Thursday was published an article from the Sanitarian, commenting upon the prevalence of typhoid fever in Brooklyn, which the writer attributed for the most part to the pollution of the drinking water of the city by the seepage of graveyards. To - day Health Commissioner Griffin was asked what truth there was in such a story. After reading the article in question Dr. Griflin said: "I want to say in the first place that the quotation in this article from the Medical and Surgical Re - porter alleging tho existence of a typhoid epidemic in Brooklyn is not based on fact. No epidemic of typhoid fever has existed in Brooklyn during the past year, and no excuse has arisen for any assertion to tho contrary. The number of deaths from this disease in 1888 was 15!1, whijo in 1887 tho number was 14 a, but tho percentage is about the same for the two years on account of tho largo iucroaso of the population. Wo aro more free at all times from typhoid fever than New York, Philadelphia, Chicago or any of the other cities of approximate size. Now, as to the remarks concerning our water supply. From my knowlcdgo of the topography of the cemeteries with regard to reservoirs, it is simply absurd even to suggest tho po - :silPVy of surface drainage, which the writJ"lirefers to. We do not in any wav eollecF', ryio Brooklyn supply from any territory neat' foAited to cemeteries. We have a cuudiiit wliteil'ls so protected that nothing can get info it on the way to the distributing reservoir. 'The water supply of Brooklyn is as pure as that of any other city in the country. Careful analysis and examination weekly by the chemist of the Health Hepartuiontshowiio abnormal changes that might lead to tho production of disoase, and the greatest care is exercised in preserving from pollution tho sources of supply by officers specially appointed for such purpose by tho Commissioner of City Works. In his charge is placed the care and preservation of all ths streams and springs contributing to the city's supply, and constant vigilanco is necessary to prevent the contamination of minor streams which pass through farms and villages." Talking in a conversational way about the causes of typhoid fever, Dr. Griffin made this highly interesting statement: "Hitherto an overlooked source of contagion might be found in the altogether too prevalent custom of drinking mineral and highly charged effervescent waters. Manufacturers employ for sneh purpose the water obtained from artesian or other wells upon their premises. They are induced to use it because of the greater apparent purity and the fact that they do not have to filter it. It has alwaj - s a bright and inviting appearance. But if any contamination and pollution exist within a large area of the existing well the water must after a time inevitably become pointed. The morn common and accepted mode of propagation of this disease is stippose.Wo bo water," which conveys tho gcrimofth.! disease discharged from ono body to another. In this way the unsuspecting drinker takes into his system a poison capable of rapid development, and the very precautions he had adopted for safety but tend to increase, his danger." When City Works Com mis doner Adaim' attention was called to the article, ho said: "f do not believe there is the slightest foundation for the assumption in that article that the water supply of Brooklyn or any part thereof is liable to contamination from seepage from graveyards. The water supply is carefully protected. It comes from no source that can be contaminated by graveyards, and there is no doubt in my mind that tho writer of that article is the victim of some theory in relation to zymotic diseases which has bscoma to a greater or less extent a monomania with liim." The Commissioner then added: "I don't think such an article calls for any further statement." FINE ENGLISH Falls Into the Hands of His Honor the Mayor. A Letter to Which Mr. Chai)in is Implored to Semi a Prompt and Exhaust - iiifr Answer. The following letter, which was received by Mayor Chapin to - day, affords an idea of the stylo of sonic of the correspondence he has to grapple with: Budapest, January 12, 1 88!). Sin In answer of your favour of 22th Dee. 1 S8.S 1 will inform yon that the questionable Mux Friedmattn run away the last year April from Budapest respectively from Yagsecrcd, while he was fabricator after having falsified bills at least of the value of a - quarter of a million. That ho made in the way of imitating the original bills he received in his trade in four or five copies; theso copies be realized and the original and true, bills of exchange ho took away with himself to America and at present he scuds themselves in the wav of an notary from thence to the lawyer Sigmniid (iraf at Budapest, who sues thein at law iiuiler the name of "David Burger merchant of Brooklyn." and drive them in and makes in that way horrible damages. All tribunals of Hungary send away writs of arrest through the whole. Europe against tint dangerous man and it would tie. very usefull, if you could explore, whether that Max Frh'dmann is idendiea! witli David Burger or who is that David Burger in general '.' With an oflieial notice you would not only make a ureal service to the Hungarian tribunals, but von would also save much private men of the distress. Wc beg then, we implore you for a prompt, exhausting answer. Very respectfully yours, Bkiidicxicii. fit connection with tin's matt"! - ii may be said that about a year ago Mayor Cha - pin received a letter from the writer of the above iiuuiixing as to the whereabouts of Frie.hnaun. This letter was printed in the papers and a man in College Point wrote lo Berdenich about Friedm inn. The letter received to - day was directed to "Mayor's ofliee, Trn.tee;' ltooni, Village of College Point, Brooklyn, Xorth America.'' The College Point correspondent had something to do with the Board of Tru - .lees and the missive of January 12 went to the Board, whose president opened it. He saw it was intended for the Mayor and so forwarded it to Mr. Chapin. WHERE IS F0WbI3R IlItEWAN? Justice Niiclicr 'H'his iVSoriiius Dcclarcu Thill HQis Stuil Ia BJecn Forfeited. Justice Naehcr this morning called the case of Brennan Fowier, alias Charles Brennan, of 1108 Baiubridge - street, under bail of $200 for his appearance on charge of infamous conduct at the ferry house, foot of Grand street, January 25, together with one Henry Winship, of 078 East Fourteenth street, New York. Brennan failed to appear and Mr. John T. Donnelly, his counsel, was unable to explain his absence. The justice, therefore, declared his bail forfeited. Tho case, however, was further adjourned till Thursday. On call of the ease of Charles Keefer, of 742 Tenth avenue. New York, similarly charged, Mr. Thomas J. Magnire, bis counsel, said: "Keefer has cut bis throat and his list and is now in the City Hospital and the physicians say he will not be able to leave it short of three weeks." The justice adjourned the hearing until February 2:i. The ease of Patrick O'Neil, accomplice of Keefer, was adjourned till the same day. He is a mere boy. Joseph Maekslein and Oeorge Smith were admitted to bail in i'.'OO for their appearance on Thursday.

The EIriilc Was a Juivusv and (The irpoiu si Wealthy Vouns; Christian., Special to the Eagle. Nr.w Brunswick, N. J., February 2. A secret marriage in Brooklyn has been the means of throwing the Village of Washington, on the South Itiver, live miles south of this city, into a slate of great excitement, as both bride and groom fire residents oPtbnt place. Tho groom is Edwin Whitehead, t:ou of Charles Whitehead, a millionaire brick manufacturer, and the bride is Miss Theresa Ecvcnson, daughter of Jacob Lev - eusou, a wealthy Hebrew clothing dealer. He is 21 and she is 2.". The girl is very pretty, and the couple had been in love with each other for some time. Their union, however, was opposed by the parents on both sides because of tho difference in religion, Miss Levcnson being a Jewess, while all of Whitehead's family are Episcopalians. About a week ago Miss Levcnson went to Brooklyn on a visit and Whitehead followed her. They were married early this week in Brooklyn, but by whom is not known here. It is, however, understood that the performer of the ceremony was a Christian clergyman. After the ceremony the couple went to the Morton House, New York, where the bride is still staying. The groom, who was in the city yesterday and to - day, declined to be interviewed. WHAT IS THAT EAR WORTH i Edgar Jellson and George Roberts run rival ferry boats between the font of Hamilton avenue and the New Jersey shore. Their customers are largely working people employed about the docks and warehouses of South Brooklyn. Jellson has sued lloberts for $5,000 for alleged personal injuries.

PAY FOR AN EYE Ten Years' Imprisonment at Sing Sing for Carey. He Tried to Murder a Woman, and is Lucky Not to be ' Standing ' Under the Shadow of the Gallows. Garrett F. Carey, who is well known in this city as tho keeper of hotels frequented by persons driving to Coney Island and Sheepshead Bay, was sentenced in tho Conrt of Sessions yesterday afternoon by Jihdge Moore to ten years imprisonment at hard labor in Sing Sing. Carey was a resident of Flatbush and is related by marriago to Justice Cox. He is a widower. About four years ago Carey kept a hotel near the Flatbush avenue entrance to the park. Dancing was sometimes indulged in there and no great discrimination was exercised in the selection of guests. At that rime a traveling salesman named Weiden - beck took up his residence in Flatbush. His wife, Florence, was a decidedly handsome woman, of a lively disposition. Mr. Weiden - bock's business necessitated his frequent absence from home, and on one of those occasions Mrs. Weidenbeck attended a hop at Carey's hotel. Although Carey was married and had a largo family Mrs. Weidenbeck became infatuated with him and did not seem to make any attempt to conceal her preference. Carey was equally unreserved in his conduct, and the pair attended the races together and were daily seen . driving down the road together. This state of affairs lasted for about two years, when Carey's inattention to business caused tho sale of his hotel and he was compelled to take the positiofi of a foreman over laborers on the aqueduct. This work, hoivcvcr, was distasteful to him, and he returned to Flatbush. With tho loss of tho hotel Carey's liking for Mrs. Wcidonbeck's company decreased, and she becamo jealous because of bis lack of attention to her. They had frequent verbal quarrels, in which hard names wero exchanged between them. On October 12 last Mrs. Weidenbeck mot Carey and began to upbraid him for his cruelty and coldness. He invited her to take a walk with him and she consented. Their quarreling increased and Carey losing his temper drew his pistol and fired at tho woman. The bullet entered the side of the head, completely destroying the sight of one eye and endangering that of the other, and carrying away so much of the bone that Mrs. Weidenbeck is disfigured for life. Carey was indicted and pleaded guilty. In passing sentence upon him Judge Moore said : "Carey, yon willfully and deliberately shot a woman in the face with tho intention of murdering her and although you did not kill hor. you shot one of her eyes out. It was a ruffianly act and deserves exemplary punishment. If you had carried out your intention she would now be in her grave and 3'ou might be standing in the shadow of the gallows. Y'ou will bo confined in Sing Sing State Prison at hard labor for ten years." A TRANSACTION IV CHICKENS Which Proved Very Costly to One of the l'artiov Concerned.

She gavo hor tiamo as Mrs. Lemuel Hotter and her residence 104 Walworth street. She secured tho warrant and took it with her. A few days afterward she again appeared in court, with her counsel, William J. Courtney. Her husband had boon arrested and was in tho pen with the usual motley array of prisoners. When tho caBe was called the pen door swung open aud a well dressed and pleasant faced young man stepped out and presented himself before the bar. He was then informed by the Court that his young wifo had made a charge of abandonment against him and asked him to plead. Tho prisonor said that he was not guilty and requested an adjournment in order that ho might secure counsel. It was granted and the hearing was set down for to - day. The defendant was not able to secure a bondsman and has languished in jail since that time. This morning Lawyer Benjamin A. Morrison appeared in behalf of the defenao and tho case was tried. Mrs. Netter took the witness stand and gave the following version of her marital unhippiuess : 8he was married in 1881, when but 15 years old: hor husband at that time was a year older. They had been married but a short time whon sho was obliged to lcavo him and go to her parents on account of his cruelty. '.Isn't it true that you threw a knife at your husband and that was what started the troublo 1" said counseL "It was not," indignantly replied tho witness. "That is a falsehood." "Didn't you attond tho theater together recently ?" "Yes; wo went to tho Criterion Theater." Mrs. Netter said that when they parted after the theater they agreed to meet again the following evening at tho corner of Putnam and Franklin avenues, to talk over the situation again. "You didn't meet him there, though, did you ?" asked Mr. Morrison. "No; I went to his sister's house before the time appointed for the meeting on the street." "What followed ?" " I asked my husband to go out with me: he did bo, and when ho reached tho street I had him arrested by a detective." "Then all of your talkabout recoucilation, going to the theater, etc., was a moro device to secure his arrest ?" "That's what it was," said Mrs. Ncttor, in an icv tone. After hearing the testimony Justice Massey said that if Mrs. Netter would not live witli her husband ho eouldu't compel him to support her. "But his cruelty toward hor has made that impossible," said Mr. Courtney. "If that phase of the ease is admitted I don't think that ten families in South Brooklyn would be living together. The prisoner is discharged." KILLED BY ACID. A Blunder Which . Cost Mrs. Stead Her Life. Taking ft Dnipr in Mistake for Tort Wine Believed by Death After Honrs of Torture. When James C. Stead, of 110 Kent street, Eastern District, returned home, after a brief absence yesterday morning he was informed that his invalid wifo, who had eaten sparingly at tho breakfast table, had gone upstairs again. He went to her room and was shocked to find her gasping and speechless, with her eyes almost leaping out of their sockets. Tho unfortunate lady had been urged to take wine as a tonic. Tho closet in which tho wine was kept was rather dark, and a bottle almost emptied of its contents acetic acid which lay at tho feet of the tortured woman told the story of a fatal blunder. Mrs. Stead when discovered held a bottle of crude oil in her right hand, and had evidently had sufficient presence of mind to make an effort to superinduce vomiting. Tho attempt was unsuccessful. Drs. Ashner and Itichardsou wero summoned and did all in their power to save their - o it's life. Mrs. Stead lingered until 8:30. In the interval she had occasional lucid intervals of a few moments, but she was unable to speak above a whisper. There is no doubt that her death was purely accidental. She was born in Albany County, this State, fifty years ago, and had resiled in the Seventeenth Ward since her marriage, fourteen years ago. She was a prominent member of the Kent Street ltoformed Church. RUN DOWN ON THE SOUND. A (Ii:nivi3d Oys'o.r Sloop Sunk By a Stliooncr.

SIGHT TESTING To Prevent Accidents on Big Bridge. the Those Who Aro Color Blind or Deaf Will Have to Leave the Service of tho Trustees Rigid Examinations to be Made. Bridge President Howell said this morning that Superintendent Martin and ho had come to the conclusion that cither the block signal at tho Brooklyn station was not set or tho conductor of tho incoming train which crashed into another in the station in December was color blind. He is convinced that the witnesses have told the truth so far as they know it. This has induced tho determination on the part of the officials to havo all the Conductors on the bridge subjected to a rigid examination by a medical expert to determine their fitness in point of hearing and sight for tho responsible positions they hold. Inasmuch as most of tho accidents on the bridge have been in the stations, where proper regard for tho signals used sir mid have afforded protection from collisions., this question is being very pertinently asked: Why was this examination not held long ago? A color blind conductor might sacrifice hundreds of lives by running past the dancer light into a station. Dr. E. A. Martin, who is always called to attend bridge cases, but who is not retained as physician by the trustees, will tho examination, which will take place on Monday. The locomotive engineers will also be examined. Mr. Howell says he intends to employ every means that exists to reduce the possible chances of accident on the bridge to a minimum. In addition to the block signals now in use, which are operated by nieu in the stations, the most improved automatic block signal that is known is being provided and the torpedo alarm signal will bo connected with it. Beside this the draw bars of all the locomotives, whose weakness in the past has been fruitful of delays and slight collisions, are being strengthened t:o that they will not pull out when the engines are coupled to the trains. .

Strong spat on her and hooted at her and followed hor for tivo or three blocks. He had frequently stood opposite her house for hours, wailing for her to appear.

Francesca Tromonte, a slender, pale faced Italian, Ventured up among tbo goats of Crow Hill a inonth ago and opened a little shop at 042 Atlantic street, in front of which ho planted a polo wound about alternately with red and white stripes. Then Francesca sharpened his razor, waxed tho curling onds of his jet black mustache, shaved his own sallow complexion as smooth as a board and smilingly waited for customers. The goats regarded him with suspicion and bore tlieir own luxuriant whiskers to places of safety without delay. Among Francesca's customers was William Strang, a burly Irish lad, of 937 Atlantic avenue. Strang wont into Tremonte's place on the evening of January 10. His story of what ensued is as follows : Francesca's razor had made only two or three passes over Strang's face, when the latter's blood began to tingle, and he discovered that Francesca was under the iiifluenco of liquor. Each movement of tho razor brought tears to Strang's eyes. Ho thought his skin would all be removed. He complained and tho Italian mildly inquired if he was hurt. Being assured in tho affirmative Francesca calmly proceeded and Strang's face underwent numerous contortions from pain. When Strang's upper lip and the right side of bis face had been shaved ho sat up in the chair and declined to submit to further tortures. Ho got down and handed tho .barber 25 cents. Francesca becamo angry. Several men emerged from a rear room, accompanied by the barber's wifo, and got around him to prevent his leaving. Francesca struck him. Mrs. Tremonte begged him to get back in the chair and allow the other sido of his faco to bo shaved. Francesca violently declared that Strang could not loavo the shop half shaved, as he was. because such a proceeding would give the shop a bad name. ..It would bo classed with tho 5 cent chambers of torture. Thinking he might as well be cut ono way as another, Strang got back in the chair and Francesca scraped off every remaining hair while the victim writhed. He got out a warrant for Frenionte's arrest for assault and the. barber was arraigned to - day before Judge. Walsh. When his Honor heard the talc narrated above, and compared tho size of Strang witli the size of Franceses, he was incredulous. He said he could not conceive how a man would get back in a barber's chair to have the job of shaving his face completed after having suffered as Strang described. Francesca was put on tho stand. He denied having struck or threatened Strang. He said Strang wanted to leave tho shop half shaved, whereupon he objected as it would give his place a bad name. His wife bogged Strang to remain and leave all his whiskers with her husband wffieh Strang agreed to do. Francesca said that when Strang complained that the razor nils "pulleo himee a little" he - got a new razor and strapped it, and all went well thereafter. He did not cut Strang, or bring blood. He chargod only 10 cents for the shave. s "Bay rum, too V asked the Judge. "Ycssa, bay a rum, too." His Honor could not believe it possible that Strang had gone back into Francesca's chair if ho had suffered as he said ho had. He therefore acquitted Tremonte. INJURY TO A NEWSBOY.

The story goes that tnc syndicate's capital stock amounts to $5, 000,000, that $2,000,000 has been subscribed in this city and $3,000,000 in New York. Under the legislation of last year provision was made for the expenditure of $1,300, 000 in paving our streets. It is proposed to spend $2,500, - 000 in addition to the first named amount. During the last month the Now York members 6f the syndicate havo boon making careful inquiries concerning the condition of the streets of Brooklyn, and havo been furnished with tables showing tlie miles of streets which will be rc - pavud in case tho requisite legislation is had. - a HE H AS HONEST ABOUT IT. An Acquaintance That ISidii'J do Two Ilowevy Croolts Kood. Albert Miner and George Miflor, the Bowery crooks who were arrested last week at the corner of Pearl and Concord streets by detectives Roche and Ryan, of the Central office, last week, and in whose possession a number of burglars' tools were found, were called before the bar in the Butler Polico Court for sentence this morning. They were tried a few days ago. Miner said that he was honest and couid prove it by a Mr. Farrell. who kept a liquor store at the corner of Fourth ayenuc and Bergen street. Mr. Farrell w.n seen and admitted the acquaintanceship of both men. "I am glad you told mo the truth about Mr. Farrell," said Justico Massey. "I have ascertained that ho docs know you both." "I knew he would remember us," said Miner. " Yes, his recollection is very good, indeed. He said that yon and Miller came to his place to clean it out, and that you would have done so if ho had not ordered you out at the point of a pistol." Tho prisoners protended to bo much surprised and were certain that some mistake had been made the wrong man seen or something else. " Y'ou people have lots of nerve, at any rate," said the Justico. " I will send both of you to the Penitentiary for six months." As the prisoners walked slowly back to tho pen they said never a word, but exchanged knowing looks. . MAYOR GLEASO.V WENT TO THE FRONT, And the Threatened tMiig Bslaiad City Water Works Tie is OH. Mayor Gienson, of Long Inland City, did not go to bed at all last night. He waited up to sco if the rumor of a tie up of the water works had any fouiidation. There was certainly some truth in it, for at 5 o'clock the pumps in Station No. .2 were as silent as an oyster. The Mayor, fortunately, arrived at - the pump house just in time and immediately set the machinery going again. Ho is an old time engineer. When everything was in working order the Mayor talked with tho workmen and asked for timo in which to call a meeting of the Water Board. This the men granted and a call M as issued by the Mayor for a special meeting at 10 o'clock to - dny. He found it impossible to get the Board together on such short notice and tho men granted him a further extension of timo until Monday at 10 o'clock. The men are determined unless they receive their back pay and tho Mayor feels that he must find some way of paying them. Just where tho money is coming from is a question that it will take more than a day to decide. Meanwhile tho water freely flows in Long Island City. , SALE OF A WELL KSOWX RESORT.

Qantin,of .'12 and 30 Iienisen street, this morning effected the salo of the well known restaurant and ball room in the City Assembly Rooms building on Washington street, next door to the Post Office. The purchaser is Mr. Andrew L. Rogers, who is well known in real estate business circles in Brooklyn, although he has been away for some lime past in Los Angeles, California, where ho owns considerable property.

Its latest proprietor was Mr. George Kinkol, Jr.: who, ou account of ill health, had to give it up, placing it in the hands of Mr. Qantin, by whom tho sale was effected. Mr. Rogers intends to renovate both the restaurant and ball room, and will make both of these resorts still moro attractive to tho public. A FIRE OS USIOX AVKXUK.

After tho eighth round, in which Wilson had been knocked down several times, ho was so weakened and winded that his seconds threw up tho sponge Dan Gallagher, tho Grcenpoitit sport, rcferoed both battles. The timekeepers were Jim MeElroy and Johnny Golden. PART OF IT TOLD The Story Which Concerns a Polish Priest. Uish. n LousMiii is Talcing a Hand in the Controversy aud Some Interesting Details Arc to Light Moro Revc - lalions in Prospect. Bishop Loughlin visited tho residence of Rev. atartiu Carroll, pastor of St. Vincent do Paul's Church, on North Sixth street, yesterday to conduct the investigation into tho troublo in tho Polish Lithuanian Church of St. George, on North Tenth street. All the parties to the controversy, including the trustees with Mr. George Miller i t their head, builders John Leahy and E. Burke, who aro owed money by the church, and tho pastor, Rev. Dr. M.Y'odyzus, were present, several members of the congregation, friends of the pastor, were also in attendance. Tlnr" bishop was. familiar with tho statements of Trustee Miller and his friends and tho servant girls. He did not treat of the latter part of the quarrel in preseueo of the laymen, if at - all, so nothing could be obtained on that point. He listened attentively to all that was said about trouble and the church's finances and questioned Dr. Yodyzus. The latter presented a statement of the amounts collected in bulk, but the bishop wanted a detailed account and tho production of the books. The priest did not havo them with him. Mr. Miller was charged by tho pastor with having collected money for which no returns were made. Tho latter replied wilh a degree of warmth and demanded that the books and printed returns with the name of every man who gave him money on it bo produced by tho pastor. Tho bishop coincided with this view of tho case and adjourned a further hearing until next week. He told Dr. to have all the books aud papers and a detailed statSuent of tho sums collected and expended at tho next session. Last night Mr. Miller waited upon the bishop at his residence in reference to certain published statements of Pastor Yodyzus about hint. Tho bishop had read them and Mr. Miller pronounced them all false from beginning to end. He wanted permission to reply to the allegations in defense of his own reputation. "Certainly you have a, right to reply to them," said the bishop. "But adhere strictly to the truth in any statement you may make. I do not pay much heed to what has been said about you." Tho bishop signified his intention to appoint two new trustees at the session next week and asked Mr. Miller to suggest names. "I w ill now answer Dr. Y'ody.sus' statements," said Mr. Miller to an Eaolm reporter to - day. "I know a good deal moro about him and his history than was published, and I will give all to (lie public if he docs not retract every statement he made abont mo. I will take up his statements as they appear in tho newspapers. He acknowledges carrying a gun and says that he did so on account of a presentiment he had that he would be attacked, and added that he was assaulted one night by loafers instigated by inc. I associate with no such people. Tho true inwardness of the case is that Father Yodyzsus, on the night ho mentions that he was attacked, was out with his servant, and they wore in a restaurant at a late hour. Strange no account of the assault was ever published, although ho says that men were sent to Blackwell's Island for attacking him. If men were arrested he ought to be able, to prove it. I do not believe ho can do so. I can tell about his movements. Ho says that I invested in cemetery lots at Plymouth. Pa. havo never been there. What he refers to is this: I was in Shenandoah, Pa., about fifteen years ago, and several of the Polish residents, including myself, decided on having a cemetery, the same as the English speaking Catholics. We were promised ground for nothing in a barren region. Wo would have to incur somo legal expenses, and wo collected $10. I gave, with others on the committee, the $!0 to the agent of the estate to moot expenses. That was all the money that was subscribed. I left Shenandoah at this time and went to London, England. When I came back I settled in tho Fourteenth Ward unci worked at my trade as a machinist. 1 have lived here since. Father Yodyzus never saw or heard of me until nine mouths ago. It is true that the trustees, who are all poor men, agreed that in going around among English speaking people to collect money for the church 35 per cent. ivu i to be allowed for expenses and time, but nothing was to bo allowed on the money collected from Poles. The whole sum which I got for nine months' labor and expenses in collecting j was $105. Not enough to pay my ex - I penses. Ho stated that there were only $7.25 in the treasury when he came hero. Suppose such was the case, is there anything about it? We paid out the money for legitimate work, and every cent is accounted or an papers ;nd books which are open to tho bishop or his accountant for inspection. The trouble is, I insisted when Father Yodyzus came here that he . - h ..lid keel) a book with an account of ali the money collected in it, and that the secretary of the Iru - tees should have another book, so that belli could be compared, lie objected to this. I went around one day collecting with the pastor. I bad printed receipts and a book and put down every cent received. When a man subscribed I asked him whether it was for the priest or the church. They would reply, "For the church.' He did not like this and got a man the next day who could not read or write. That was the whole troublo. I wanted books and ho did not. As to the $1,000 mortgage money which he says I kept half of and gave the other half to William Hayes, I say that I never got any such sum. Father Yodyzus got the money and with two trustees paid it over to Sir. Buckley, agent of the Hunt estate. The mortgage was canceled, I believe, as the record will show. It was a malicious falsehood. He even states that I bought out a saloon with tho $500. It is all false. It is simply absurd to state that I asked' him to announce from the altar that it would be a sin to buy liquor at any store but mine. He could not do so. That statement is simply a ridiculous falsehood. Now, he says that I stated that he was intoxicated. The papom containing my statement made no mention of the word. The only person that I told that ho was intoxicated now and again was the bishop. I made the statement, and I prove it by witnesses. I can prove every assertion that I made. He says that I have no religion. I have moro religion in me than he has. As to the statement that I, with others, was creating a riot in his house one night I will say in reply that I was at his house with Builder Leary and four other trustees to see about the debt. Father Yodyzus received us m an ungentle - manly way. lie was not in a very good condition any way to transact business. He sent quietly after two policemen. When the latter entered the house and saw a lot of quiet men there they merely smiled. Wo departed. Mr. Leahy wanted an understanding about the money due to him. There arc about eight hundred Poles in the parish and each pays 50 cents a month for the support of the pastor. That's about $400 a month. What do you think he does every Sunday 1 He keeps the money collected at the masses for what we would call pin money. When some of the collectors counted it the first few Sundays he upbraided them for niggardliness. I challenge him to tell all he knows about me. I have re. - ided here fourteen years and the people know me. If he does not retract all he has said about nie I will publish the whole story about him - It has only been half published. No man can point his finger at me." . A DIRTY PKOCKEMXU. To Hie Editor o the Brooklyn Eagle: While on my way to the elevated station at tho corner of Fulton street and Lafayette avenue this morning my attention was drawn to a long line of sand strewn in the middle of Lafayette avenue roadway, and upon seeking for the cause 1 discovered that a long wagon was proceeding toward Flatbush avenue and distributing the sand in the Btrcot. This wagon had contained a load of sand, the bulk of which had been dumped in front of Mr. Kane's (the mason) premises. The amount of dirt deposited in the street seemed to mo to bo perfectly outrageous, and it ought to have been the policeman's duty to have arrested tho driver of tho wagon and had him punished for (to say the least) his gross carelessness. I should like to know how any contractor can give us clean streets if such practices are permitted. S. II. W. Brooklyn, February 2, 18S0. CHIC A (10 MAIthRTS TO - PAY. Onfininsf, 0:30 A. M.
