Coroners' State Convention. Coroner H. J. Bailey was in Chicago, yesterday, making arrangements for a convention of coroners of the State with a view to bringing about some State legislation affecting them. Mr. Bailey is chairman of the committee on arrangements. It was decided to hold tbe convention at Springfield Dec. 15. Among those present were Coroners Taylor, of LaSallo, Baer of Sangamon, Carson of McLean, Berz of Cook. The laws governing the office of coroner have not been revised in hundreds of years, and are extremely unsatisfactory. It is proposed by tbe coroners that tbe law be modified so thac a jury will not be necessary in every inquest. Wherever a person may be found dead ov have died without medical attendance, and the attendant circumstance do not indicate violence, it shall not be necessary for a jury to be summoned. In such a case the coroner would be empowered to make an examination and issue a death certificate without the assistance of a jury. The change would be a good one and certain it is that no laws need modification so much as those governing the coroner. The coroners will offer their suggestions to the State Legislature and will be backed up by public sentiment. The ruling of Judge Hartzell, whicl excludes all evidence in the schoo case except that intended to prov the Bibb children alone were exolud ed from the public schools of Alton has unquestionably out short, tbe tria and turned a long tedious hearing o testimony, Into a battle of argument Tne ruling out out some of th best evidence the prosecution hat made same of tbe .local leaders of th colored people lose all hops of secur lag a favorable verdict in the Circn: Court. Oae of the colored leaders to day stated the verdict would nalonbt edly b» against them, a? the attorneys for the colored people had been able to Score only one point under Judge Hartzell's rule. The prosecution had witnesses to testify that the children of complainants had been obliged to pass convenient schools in going to the school to which they were as signei. This testimony the attorneys for the defense: proposed to oppos with the fact that white children, too, were obliged to do likewise. The time of tbe court was occupied this morning in hearing of motions for other oases and shortly before noon the scbool case was taken np. Little progress was made at last report, bui indications were that tbe attorneys would begin arguments this after noon. The afternoon had been so far spent in legal sparring. 3:30 p. m.—Miss Logan, of Washington school, testified for the defense. After which tbe arguments were begun. Chas. Palmer of Springfield, spoke for the prosecution and was followed by W. M. Warnook of Edwardsvllle, for tbe defense, who Is now (3:30 p. m.) talking. Messrs. Baker, McGinnis and Travons will follow for the defense, and Ool. BrenhoU will close for the prosecution. If all these gentlemen speak the arguments cannot close before tomorrow.

The much talked of Mississippi Valley Railway Co.'e ordinance granting a francbise to the company to operate an electric railway on the streets of Alton has been vetoed by the Mayor. The reason assigned by his Honor for S3 doing is the fact published in the TBLEOBAPH Saturday night that the signatures of property owners representing a majority of the front feet along tbe proposed route had not been secured. The Mayor would not permit the Mississippi Valley promoters to secure additional names, but vetoed the ordinance Saturday night at 11 o'clock. The Mayor waited until the eleventh hour before re- fuaiug to sign the ordinance as it would have become a law at midnight. Mr. Lowe today stated that the Mississippi Valley Oo.'s petition was short on Milton road, Vine street and Third street. On the Milton road the nemos of all property owners were secured excepting the railroads along the street, and these corporations are prevented by law from signing the petition even though they were willing. On Vine street all property owners on one side were signed, the only one not secured on the other side being the Alton Oemetury Association whose property fronts the entire length of the block. On this street therefore only one-half and not a majority was obtained. On Third street the city claimed that 30 feet less than a majority bad been signed. Tbe promoters saoured 100 feet more and with their petition iu this condition H is more than probable tbe ordinance will be passed over the Mayor's veto. Corporal itice home. Corporal Rico of the 10th U. S. regulars, now at Huntsvllle, Ala., but better known as plain Percy, will arrive home this evening for a short visit with his family iu this city. Percy left Alton last Alay In company with half u dozen other Alton boys and en- ll«ted iu the 10th infantry. He went through the campaign at Santiago without Injury and at Montauk Point became a corporal. Percy looks well and army life seems to agree With him. Jlard Spring Wheat.

"Dot Skelly The jury in the case of the Oity of Alton vs. Alexander Wegener found a verdict Saturday night in favor of the Alderman and dismissed the charge against him. Oity Attorney J. P" Thornton prosecuted the case and Ool. J. J. Branholt was for the defense. The defense proved conclusively that Mr. Wegener bad been given permission to quarry on Easton street four years ago in consideration that he construct a sewer on Eighteenth street to carry off city water. The lease given Mr. Wegener was for five years and was filed with the Comptroller, but was mislaid and has not been seen for some time. In addition to Mr. Wegener having executed a bond of $500, he had signatures of ten aldermen to a paper giving their consent to continue quarrying in the street. The jury was out only fifteen minutes, returning a verdict for Mr. Wegener. The Alderman says now he will proceed "mit dot schwettin bitzness and make dot Skelly bard to find." On all sides the whole affair is looked upon as a piece of petty revenge and Mr. Wegener's attorney is authority for the statement that a suit for damages will be instituted against the official £who brought the charges and stopped work at bis quarry.
