THE BRGOKXYN PAT&Y EAGLE - MO P A YMAgOH 25. 1889 ' - SIX PAGES 1 O'CLOCK EDITM f MO.WUV EVENING. MARCH 25. 1889. THE LOST SHIP. She tlie Conserva From Brooklyn 1 Speculations Caused by the rhiaiit? or (iic Baft and Vreckase - Indications that They Come From Another Vessel. Is the alleged Ilaytiun frnnbont, Conserv.i, formerly the Madrid, lt at son? That is the question engrossing maritime circles ribice the arrival In New York, yesterday, of the Mallory linn steam - riiip Colorado, bringing news of the finding of a life raft, two dead bodies and a lot of cabin wreckage on Saturday morning off the coast of Virginia and about out hundred and sixty miles from Sandy Hook. The Conserva was tied y here for alone time, and (lure was a fight over her in the United States Court. Finally sho got away, beciiiise Secretary of Slate James O. Bluino said it didn't matter a continental whether she was intended for Hippolyto or Legitime, as neither had been recognized as ruler of JJayti. Hardly v - us her black hull out of night behind Highland J.ight wlien she put back leaking. On last Thursday she put away from the Eric i'.nsiti for goodness knows where with her yawning cracks Beamed up witli cement. Now coined word she is yo'.io to the bottom with oil on board. At the Erie ttnsin every one in authority, intituling Manager Moore for Handren it Iteibbins, Mid Superintendent Mctiilvery Btoutly declare that they do not believe tin; Conserva is lost. Wharfinger George Martin, of the Atlantic Pock Company, said to - day: "There is very little doubt in my little doubt in my mind that tho Conserva is lost. When she returned here after her first start she had i'onr and a half feel of water in the hold, her own pumps were unable to keep it under and up to the hour Ishe left here m Wednesday her steam pump was at work. Tli:re was at least one negro or mulatto aboard; lie n.'ts a the ship's cook." H Superintendent MeCiillivray said he. did not Pthiuli the wrecked vessel wan the Coiwrva. Master Mechanic Frank Mnllnarii, who had charge of tho. alterations and repair on the vessel. waR confident it could not be h - r. She was perfectly scaworlivy, ho said, had paoed the m - gpeotora and had been heavily insured in iho - ttatw - Marino Insurance Company. This to liim seemed good evidence that the lost ship was not the Conserva. When the vessel returned leaking ITaiidicii fc UobbiuH were obliged to put a force of eerneiitcrs on board, who cemented all the leaks and made her as tight as possible. The vessel had been first strengthened from her stem to aft lit r engines with twelve inches of wood and then plat - . - d inside and out with one inch iron. These plnlv sere not riveted, Imt were put on with m - iuw bolts and each bolt had to bo canii.e i to jnako her staunch. In calm wat. - r the ccinent might last, but the general bi - lir.l is that when the slii) began t roll it would hoon chip away and the lek:;e would be as bad as ever. Tho Conserva is sai 1 to ltavo c.i. - l some $(10,000 including her repairs ami alterations. C. P. Kurhurt. a relative of lie - lo ad of the firm ofKurhardt .t Co.. leaver Kive - t, New York, superintended the repairs at Handn - .n & Itob - bi;is Iron Works, he was present duriii:: tho trial in the United .State.) Court, and he sailed in her, probably to turn her over to her new ou m - rs. Captain (iardner, of the si . :: m dii Morgan City, now lying at the Erie liu - dii wliik; anew propeller is being put in, says lie does not take any stock in the. story that the raft an 1 wreckage discovered by tho le:t:uxliii Colorado belonged to the gunboat t'mi - erva. The Morgan City be - 1ok.i to the Morgan J.iue and lilies between Now York alul Galveston. Captain (Iardner has been on the line five years. He took the. Kmili: reporter into (he cabin of his ship and hauled forth hii sailing charts and indicated the p.riut at which the Colorado's crew saw the. raft and (h.; wreckage. "I do not think,'' said ihe captain, that there is any ground for alarm for the safety of the Conserva. She would hi'i - dlyhave been as close to shore, by miles, as the place where the wreckage was found. She would have stood well out to sea. Captain Ankers, her commander, is a thoroughly experienced seaman and there was nothing in the storm ho encountered to keep him from lying to or from going on shore if the ship struck a leak. ,fo. - eph Sherwood, the first officer, is also an experienced seaman. It is singular there was no name on the raft that was picked up. think it more than likely the bodies, raft and debris belonged to the bark I'ettougill, which was wreoked oft" the Const of Virginia in that neighborhood four weeks ago. The bodies, whofl found, were frozen, and, therefore, might have been dead several weeks. When a body is frozen it keeps perfectly. If ihe sea permitted the launching of a life rait it also permitted the launching of a boat, of whi'li there ought to have been seen some traces. It i - I HO miles from Sandy Hook to the point wh. - iv ihe wreckage was found, and the Conserva, to have been only that far on her Journey, e.oiild have been traveling but seven knots an hour. She could go much faster than that, because she had a strong wind (N. to N". K.) in her favor from the time she left New York. Sailing vessels often carry raft answering the description of the one found. The black cor'.! life preserver seen in the water is the most singular feature of the affair. I lit vcr before heard of a black cork life preserver. They are nsnnlly painted white. A black preserver could not be seen." Special ()ili. - er Dowling told the reporter that the Cousei'va's life preservers were Wads on top and red umh vneaih. At Knhnhavdl's ofie'C in New York to - day, it was said lie - rati on the (.'..ns. - rva bore the name or W. Whiter ,V Co., of Hnhdolphi t. The raft picked up bore the name of Jonathan Cone, Y.' ilmiiiL'ton. Del. A possible clew to th shipwreck was furnished by two incoming e. - sci.. this morning. The Atlas line steamer Atlas, from Port which arrived early to - day, reports having passed on Saturday noon a white painted . - te.uner bound South, showing tho C. - rman colors. The. I rig O.. 15. Loekart, which also got in' this uioruiiig from San Domingo, brings a more dffinile report of a ship in distress. The I.ockarfs captain said that on March JO, in laliimle ISO. 15, longitude 7:1.01, he spoke the British steamer Terdmandall in a ' disabled state. The Yurdmandall had a heavy list to the starboard, her decks were on a line with the water, her machinery was disabled and her sails blown away. The disabled vessel displayed a series of signals indicating distress, and hoisted a rceiuest lo have - her condition telegraphed to the English Lloyds. The Yerdman - dacc left New Orleans for Rouen, France, ou March 0. On the Maritime Kehauge this morning it was thought probablo that the latter vessel had gone down and that the: raft ami driftwood passed by the Co'orado on Saturday were all that were left to tell the story of her tlc - dru - 'tion.

DEATH OF A F0IIE5IAX. Charles Goodwin, foreman of detailed mechanics in the Firo Department Repair Yard, died yesterday. He had been connected with the depart - jment' for some ton years. DEAD THIS TIME. Aunt Sally Betts, of Long Island, is No More. Sho Was a Good and Ycncrable Woman nud a Jcffci'Roniau Democrat Once She Enjoyed Reading: Her Own Obituary Notice. It may bo remembered by tho readers of the Eaoi.u that there appeared in these columns a few months ago an obituary notice of Miss Betts, familiarly known on the North Shore of Long Island as Aunt Sally Betts, who, however, was not dead at all a mistake arising from the fact of an advertised notice of the decease of a lady bearing the same name and having her residence in tho same vicinity as that of the subject of this article. The notice meeting the eyo of one of Aunt Sally's numerous friends, who in dayB long irono by had partaken erf her hospitality and had been deeply impressed by her estimable characteriBtjce, ho at once contributed an obituary article, which greatly pleased the old lady, as she thus was enabled to nee before her death what was intended as a trilmto of afl'cetitm and worth after that event. The article in question was eluly contradicted, and Aunt Sally bade fair to continue with her friends for many years. On last Thursday evening, however, Miss Betts departed this life at the ripe old age of 80 years, seventy of which she had passed on the very spot where she died. On tho North Shore of Long Island, about five miles east of Glen Cewe, is one of tho most picturesque villages tho Island possesses. It is called Lattintown and is in the Township of Oyster Bay. On an elevated point of land from which the eye can scan the Sound for many miles, with its ever varying changes of scenery and which gradually slopes to the linest stretch of beach on the Islanel - fully three miles in length and in the form eif a crescent is "Aunt Sally's" old home, a two story structure or "shanty," as she called it. Forty - live years ago it was built, and from that time until wilhin a few months of her death, everything in tho way of repairs and additions wjb the work of her own hands. During tho Winter months "Aunt Sally'' was the sole occupant of her home. Nor could her friends induce her to leave it. There with her pipe, her books and her papers sho was content. When Summer arrived, however, the splendid situation of "Aunt Sally's'' aboelo and the unbounded ami whole smiled hospitality of its owner, often made the "Hill' - seem a small section of Coney Island, bo numerous were the visitors, botli transient and those for an extended stay. A generous welcome and a godspeed were given io all and hence it wan that tho Gentlemen's Sons, at one time a Democratic club from New York, while on a picnic in "Aunt Sully's" vicinity and on lier lanel and, consequently, by her custom entitled to her hospitality, which sho generously and abundantly gave (throwing in a world of advice to them in a speech made before their departure homeward, as to their duty as Democrats, she herself being a Democrat of the Jefforsonian type) unanimously elected her an honorary member of their dub, and frequently thereafter sent her reminders of their pleasant visit. Her whole life seemed devoted to others and forgetful of self, though, as she! once expresseel it : "The early storm of life broke heavy o'er my And in'i'n'y' pathway thorns were thickly spread." Her cross for many many years was very heavy, still she bore it bravely and, in addition, eveu did her utmost to make the troubles of those around her lighter by helping to hear them. To the friendless she was ever a friend. She saw something good even in those the law and her fellow men pronounceel worthless. " Lot him that is without sin among you cast the first stone," was practically her challenge as Bhe stoed between the accused anel tho accusers, anel actuated her conduct toward the friendless. True, sho despised the sin, but never tho sinner. But now " Aunt Sally" is no more. Yesterday, amid almost Summer surroundings, a long line of relatives ami friends from Brooklyn and New York, together with friends from the vicinity and distant points of Long Island, followed reverently ou foot behind the hearse that bore the remains of this veteran lady to its final resting place. In a clearing ..urrouneiod by woods, and in gun shot of her lute home, now rests the subject of this article. It is the old family burial ground, now discarded by later generations of tho Betts family for more modern cemeteries, yet tho chosen spot in which "Aunt Silly" desired her long rest, Its graves are scattered here and there - in its limits where headstones may ret bo needed to further proof of the heirship of the Long Island Betts families, of which "Aunt Sally,' until now, wan tho oldest representative, to the.' enormous English estate of John Burwell, whose only elaughtcr and heiress married a direct ancestor of the deceased lady. To the last "Aunt Sally'' remained in full possession of her faculties. It seemed to her until within a few weeks that she had more work to accomplish, and wished to stay in "this beautiful world,'" as she called, a little longer; but when increasing suffering, hardly to be borne by those in full strength of youth, racked her aged frame, she concluded her time had come anil then humbly askctl that sho might die. Her request was granted, but very many friends will be grieved to know she is gone, and all will long miss the familiar face, the faithful counsel and the kind heart of dear "Aunt Sally'' Betts. SHOUT, IJL - T VICIOUS. Another I'tizc Fifrht Fought Hear Flushing, I.. I., VeKtertlay. Brooklyn sports congregated yesterday afternoon at a resort near Flushing, L.

Both fought hard and last, and Wiseman geit i blow on tho left side of tho face that knocked him senseless. He was late to answer to the call of time, but the referee would not give his opponent the light. Tho third round was Wiseman's. Ho seemed determined to end the affair, and gave the Unknown a scries of hard body blows and almost closeel his left eye. The proprietor of the hall wanted to put an end to the affair, bitt ho was prevailed upon to let the boys have one more round, which became so furious that tho men were separated and the fight declared a draw, each man taking half the purse.

TWICE MARRIED But He Seems to Have Had Only One Wife. A Lawyer Talks About tho Brass in An - other Lawyer's Faco and JwIko Pratt Says that BiishTrliacking: Doesn't Amount to Anything1. Lawyer Lane O Neil applied to Justico Pratt in tho Supreme Court this morning to assess damages in tho suit to annul the marriage betweon Joseph Otto Von Proohaska and Liuuie Vou Prochaska, which occurred in Now York in 1877. Mr. Proehaska is a music dealer, having a storo on Fourteenth sliect. New York. According to the papers iu tho case, the couple lived happily until 18K5, when Mrs. Prochaska grew Jealous of a pretty girl whom her husband employed as an assistant in tho store. She remonstrated with him, and, on his refusal to discharge his pretty assistant, she began proceedings for an absoluto divorce and obtained a decree. Then Von Prochaska made a trip to Hoboken with his pretty nsHistant, and they returned to New York with a certificate from a clergymen setting forth that they had been made man and wife. This union was not more fortunate than the former one, and within a year the pretty assistant began an action against Von Prochaska for divorce? Proehaska did not allow that action to he disposed of as easily as he did the suit brought by his first wife. He astonished the fair Linuie by beginning an action for the annulment of his marriage to her em the ground that his first wife had not been divorced from him as ho believed when he married his assistant. The fact was that Mra. Prochaska No. 1 did obtain an absolute divorce, but before her husband married again she went to Judge Dykman, who granted tho decree, and matte affidavit that she had been imposed on by malicious gossips when Bhe accused her husband of infidelity. She asked that the decree bo vacated and set aside, which was done. The real motive of her action, however, is said to havo been gratitude to her husband, wjio provided handsomely for her and her children after she scrvoel the elecrco on him. She "hoped for a reconciliation and secretly had the deevoe set aside so that there would be no obstacle to their resuming housekeeping when Von Prochaska should tire of his assistant. It is also asserted that Yon Prochaska's frequent visits to his supposed divorced wife and his liberality with her in money matters caused Linnie, his fair assistant, to bring proceedings against him for a divorce. Then his first wife told him that he was not legally married to Linnie. In addition to his action for an annulment of the second marriage Mr. Yon Prochaska asked for an injunction restraining Linnie from prosecuting her action against him for a divorce, which was granted but subsequently vacated by the General Term. It was because of this that Lawyer O'Neil appeared before justice Pratt, claiming that Linnie had sustained damages amounting to $100 because of the injunction. Lawyer McKiu - ley appeared for Mr. Von Prochaska anel in opposing Lawyer O'Neil's claim he said to that counselor: "If money was as abundant as the brass in your face then you might be paid such a sum." Mr. O Neil showed a long bill of expenditures, and Mrs. Von Prochaska produced receipts for money she had paid her lawyer. ' It is just as easy to manufacture receipts as to manufacture a bill," said Lawyer McKinley. " All this bushwhacking doesn't amount to anything,'" saiel Judge Pratt, as he took the papers in the case, reserving his decision. CENTRAL LABOR UNION. The Members 5ijleaned With Wlsilelaw Kciti'N Appointment. The Central Labor Union had quite a lively meeting yesterday afternoon in the Labor Lyceum, Myrtle street, somewhat political in its nature, although against tho rules of that body. What was termed the political portion of tho discussion was in relation to the appointment of Whitelaw lteid as Minister to France by President Harrison. Mr. Bareud, cf tho Cigarmakors - Union, spoko at length on the subject. He said that ho considered that organized labor had got a direct ship in the face by tho action of the President in appointing such a man as Reid, who, ho averred, was an avowed antagonist of organized labor, anel atwayH had been. The speaker added that President Harrison added insult to injury by his refusal to appoint a union man as public printer, Judging from the interview a committee had with him, when he was reported as saying that he would appoint a competent man, but ho did not say that he would appoint a union man. Creelentials were received from the Stonemasons' Uniou, Iforscshoors' Union and Typographical Union Ne). OS. .

TO BUILD A HALL After the Fashion of the Tammany Wigwam. Mayor Chapin Explains the New Democratic Enterpirisfl Is General Woodward Back in the Fold ? Mayor Chapin said to - day that the property - purchased for the site of tho proposed Democratic headquarters building on Boernin place, near Fulton Btreet, adjoins immediately the old Long Island Savings Bank. It has a frontage of about 50 feet and a depth varying from 84 to 100. feet, extending back to Bed Hook lano. The Mayor was asked who bought the property, and replied that it was purchased by partieB who would hold it if it should not he laken off their hands. He thought it was a very eligible Bite and secured at a reasonable amount, about $50,000. The Mayeir ilid not say so, but it is reported that General Woodward offered $5,000 for the contract of sale. Woodward is one of tho men who put his namo down for 15,000 at the meeting on Saturday evening, when Hugh McLaughlin, James Shevlin, John Dolmar, tho Mayor, Alderman McCarty and a few others said they wero each ready to pay in a similar sum. Mayor Chapin was asked if it followed because he, for instance, had subscribed $5,000, ho would bo allowed $5,000 of the bonds and stock to be issued. He said no. He was asked to explain the financial scheme and replied: " I caunot speak with any authority. I - can only give yon my opinion as to what is proper and just. The land and building are to cost, as near aB can bo easilycstimated, abont$1.1 0,000. If this $150, - 000 is represented by $75,000 of bonds and an equal amount of stock it will, perhaps, be fair to offer it on tho principle that every subscriber mut tako as much of the Btock as of the bonds. So that a man who subscribes $1,000 takes $500 in bondB and $500 in stock. Thus there will be no conflict of interest between stockholders and bondholders. Tho subscriptions ought to bo ' open to all who wish to apply, for a specified time, and all should havo an equal opportunity. Tho people who have already subscribed are in no better position than any subsequent subscribers will be. If tho total amount of subscriptions, after public opportunity has been given, should be greater than $150,000 there should bo an allotment so that everyone would be fairly treated. Precisely how such an allotment would be made, of course, I do not know. It would seem to mo to bo just, however, to so ar - rauge it that the fargest subscribers should be cat down rather than tho Bmaller ones. For instance, if $200,000 were subscribed, when we only wanted $150,000, 1 would not cut down all tho subscribers 25 per cont., but I would take tho extra fifty off from the biggest subscribers, leaving the smaller ones to get all that they had subscribed for. The main object of the movement is to give the party a proper and permanent abiding place, and if this purpose is accomplished it will be worth all it costs." The Mayor is a member of the committee appointed to attend to the financial end of the business, D. A. Boody being chairman. He said the committee would meetiu a day or two, but probably not in his office. No plans for the building had yet been prepared. Ex - Rcgistor Murtha, also a member, had a talk with tho Mayor this morning. He said the committee would meet to - morrow. One feature of this movement was commented upon by people around the Hall to - day, namely, tho apparent return of John B. Woodward to regularity. The general was away off only a couple of years ago; so far away that he .tried by miming stump to beat the regular candidate for Maj - or, D. D. Whitney. It has been suggested that he might bo nominated next Fall, if it should be decided inadvisable to renominate Mr. Chapin. DISCUSSING DIPttOVEMEXT BILLS.

E. Mudge, to appear at Albany as substitutes for the Mayor's bills, it was resolved that the school bill be first considered. After some little discussion a bill was approved which provides that $400,000 "be raised for use for the present year and $000,000 for 1800. The latter shm is to be expended on condition that the sum of $400,000 additional be inserted in tho tax levy of that year. Tho next considered was the Sewer bill, which was agreed to after being referroelto Messrs. Aludgoaiul Johnson for revision. As presented it proposed to raise bv bonds $o,500,()00, to be expended one - half each in the years 18.00 and 1801 - Tho ebs - cussion was pretty lively, as tho chairman of the Legislative Committee had taken positive grounds against raising any money for tho purpose. Mr. Woodruff admitted that the sentiment of the people anel the press called for better pavements. He was prepared to approve a bdl which should provide at least $1,000,000 to be expended for the purpose in 1 800. He pledged himself to try to get the Legislative Committee to agree with him. A motion was finally carried, with but three dissenting votes, to recommend the passing of a bill authorizing the raising of $l,000,000 iu IS per cent., bonds, to be expended in graiuto pavements in tlic year 1800, conditional on tho raising of 1,000,000 iu the tax levy of the same year for the same purpose. - o THE RKPifUTEit'S NOTE BOOK.

Morrissy, who is looked upon as ono of the leaders of tho Seventeenth Ward Democracy, appears to be disgusted because of tho indifference of tho powers that be. He told friends yesterday that ho intended to leave the Seventeenth Ward Democratic Association, as it seemed impossible for him to get anything for his friends.

This seemed to auger McLaughlin, who said the ward would bo better off without such leaders. This was at the time when the doctor sought to have certain ofliceholders put out of their positions because they did not support his ticket at tho primary. The doctor haB concluded that the llfo of a leader is not altogether a happy one. NEW PRECINCTS Commissioner Bell Increasing the Police Force. Tliero Will be Another Station House Near the City Hall Captains, Sergeants, l)e - tectiTcs and Patrolmen to b Appointed. Commissioner Bell to - day made a movement that has long been looked forward to bv the Polico Department. It paves the way to the establishment of two new precincts, one near tho City Hall, the other in the Twenty - fifth and Twenty - aixth wards. The Commissioner's action was in the form of a request to tho Board of Aldermen to leaso suitable buildings for the proposed station houses. Some weeks ago an eligible list for captains was secured by Commissioner Bell, composed of twenty - four sergeauts and tleteetives who aspiro to promotion. The Commissioner has been waiting further action until an eligible list of patrolmen couhl bo secured, which has just been accomplished. Tho following letter sent this afternoon to the Board of Aldermen contains detailed information regarding tho proposed improvements: Depaktment oi - Police axd Excise,) Bkookutx, March 25, 1880. ( To the. Honorable die. Common Council: Gentlemen It is intended by this department to increase tho niimbereif polico precincts by two. The Board of Estimate provieleil for two additional captains and the sergeants, rouii tsiucii anel detectives necessary to man the precincts. At my request your Honorable Boily fixed the limits of patrolmen at 1,000 and the Boarel of Estimate provided means to pay an additional 100 patrolmen after tho 1st of January of this year. Owing to delay in getting an eligible list for patrolmen, it was not deemed atlvisablo to create these precincts until the present time. I have assurances from the Civil Service Commissioners that they will bo able to give this department an eligible list for patrolmen within a very few days. The new precinct will be the Twentieth, the boundaries of which will be determined as follows: Beginning at tho Navy Yard wall, where the center lino of Cumberland street would intersect: thence running along said center line southerly to Atlantic avenue; thenco westerly along tho center lino of Atlantic avenue to Hoyt street; thence along Hoyt Btreet to Fulton, Fulton to Brielge street, along the center lino of Bridge street to the 'Fast River, thence to tho navy yard and along the navy yard wall to the place of beginning. And the Twenty - first, which will bo bounded as follows: Commencing at the intersection of DeKalb and Busluvick avenues, thence southeasterly along Bushwick avenue to Conway street (boundary line Twenty - sixth Ward), thenco along saiel boundary line and along the city lino to the center of DoKaib avenue, thenco along tho center line of DeKalb avenue to the place of beginning. I have the honor to request that your Honorable Board will leaso suitable buildings for station houses in these two proposed precincts; such station houses to be located as nearly as possible to the center of the precinct. I would also suggest that a stable adjoining, or in the vicinity of tho station house iu the proposed Twenty - first Precinct, bo rented, as it will be a proper place for a nionntcd squad. Permit mo to urge immediate action upon this matter, as the public interests demand that nn addition to the force bo at once made, and that these proposed precincts be established. I have the honor to remain yourobedient servant, J. D. Bell, Commissioner. The new precincts will need eight sergeants, four detectives and four roundsmen, beside tho two captains ami the new patrolmen, anil as there arc already several vacancies for sergeants in the force the Commissioners will make a large number of drafts on the new eligible lists.

Mrs. Waite, who is a young looking woman, was in court with a lady friend. She was representee! by Lawyer G. B. Vau Wart, while Lawyer Richard H.Laimbeer and Mr. Frank appeared for the defense. Mrs. Waite's principal witness was Rose McConlon, who was employed in tho Westmoreland last Summer, first as lanndreBS and then as cook. Sho was examined before trial about two weeks ago, when she gave very direct testimony to show that Waite and MiBfl Cummings were living together as man and wife. Sho was cross examined at that time, persisted in her Btory and swore to it. before ono of tho Supremo Court Judges. Mr. Van Wart was about to read hor testimony as then taken, when defendant's counsel called attention to tho fact that the girl was in court - Judge Bartlett said sho must be examined and the young woman was called to the witness stand. To the surpriso of the plaintiffs counsel her testimony diffcretl very materially from what sho had sworn to on her previous examination, and was of the most innocuous character. Sho said that Josephine Cummings resided iu the hotel and that when sho first met her Bhe was presented by the defendant who called her "Miss Waite." Rose insisted that he called her "Miss" and not "Mrs." Mr. Van Wart, had sought to show by other witnesses that the woman was known about tho hotel as "Mrs. Waite." Josephine's reply to the introduction was, the girl said: "Well, if I aint I soon will be." Then sho denied that she had ever seen Waite and tub woman in a compromising situation. This was in direct contradiction of her previous testimony. When closely questioned by counsel as to whether she had not testified as to certain material facts on the previous examination, she denied it. and, confronted with her sworn testimony, then taken down and written out, she declared it was not taken down right, that it waB not trno and that she never saiel so. Tho girl was evidently ignorant as to what sort of a position sho was placing herself in by tier contradictory evidence. The defense said they could explain it, but Judge Bartlett said it was so evident that tho plaintiff had boen surprised that he would permit the withdrawal of a juror without costs. Mr. Van VVart stated that it was from the servant girl his client, the plaintiff, obtaineel theinformation upon which she based her allegations against her husband and the modified evidence was regarded as about as curious a development as ever surprised a ludgo.

Peter Tremhle, Though Kut a Day Ia borer, Figured In Many Democratic Conventions One of Sew York's Former Jiteht Watch Force. Peter Tremble U dead. His life began and ended in obscurity, yet tho men who fignro prominently in public circles of this city have found a few moments thoy cmild spare from their busy hours to pay their rc - pi'ct.e to tho memory of the - honest old man who has been a landmark in municipal uolitics for fifty years. Standing over tho casket iu the small darkened, chamber of the old fashioned, plain board dwelling 120 Navy street, which for nearly fifty years tho humble old man hud made his home, ex - Jlayor Whitney to - dav spoke a few comforting words to the widow. Judge Walsh, too, paid an tipprepriate tribute to the memeiry of the deceased. Father Woods, of St. hemes Church, on Jay street, officiated in the, rites ol' Die Catholio faith and the remains were buried in Flatbush. Peter Tremble wan a character iu the political circles of the Fifth Ward. He va born in Ireland and came to this country in is:ss. Out of his daily earnings he saved enough to purchaso the place in which ho has liveel for so many years. He beeamo nn ardent and active Democrat, attending every ward and district convention and being often delegated as a representative at tho county conventions. With all his attention to politics and having nothing except his daily earnings, money could not influence him. Ex - Mayor Whitney, speaking of" him, says: "When ho espoused tho cause of a eanelidato that candidate knew where to find him. He was always at his post working faithfully to the close of the canvass." His was the casting vote that decided tlie nomination of Juelge Samuel D. .Morris at the time he was made tho candidate for District Attorney. At the presidential election last Full Peter Tremble, though feeble and faltering, walked to the polls at Frince and Tillary streets and cast a ballot for the straight ticket, refusing to wait for a carriage that ho was assured had been Kent for. Before tho Metropolitan polico was organized ho was one of the ttrelvo original night watch. He subsequently held sovoral minor positions in the pay of the city. THE BITTEBFIKMI CLAIMS.
