Dr. Bebee, in the course of his remarks, stated

IIU Objections to the Falrmonnt Bridge
This afternoon the Mayor sent Into Councils
this veto message:
Gentlemen: 1 resrret, from my great desire to see
a new bridge constructed over the river Sohnylfclll
at Falrrnount at thn earliest possible moment, that I
find myself obliged to return the resolution entitle!
"Resolution relative to the proposals for erecting
Falrrnount Bridge," wlthont my approval.
The language of the resolution seems to be vagae
and ambiguous. Although it Is restricted to direct
ing the City Solicitor to prepare contract with
parties for the con'tructlon of the several portions
of the Lew bridge at the locality mentioned, and to
report the tame, with the names of sureties offered.
to the Chambers, it obviously promises that if the
contracts are In proper form ana the sureties satis
factory, Councils will have such contracts executed
and the city bound for the amount of expenditure
On examination of the minutes and proceedings
of Councils, I cannot And that any sufficient appro
priation Das Deen niacin 10 meet tne outlay required
under such contracts. The act of Assembly of April
21, lb.v, expressly provides "that no debt or con
tract hi rial tcr incurred or made shall be binding
upon the city of Philadelphia unless authorized bjr
law or ordinance, and au appropriation suillcient to
pay the same be previously made by Counclla." Anil
the Supreme Court, in the case of Bladen against
the city or Philadelphia, which is to be found in the
tenti volume of P. K Smith's Reports, page 464, has
recognized the force Of this act, and it there decided
mat a contract maue in advance 01 an appropriation
Is not binding on the city of Philadelphia, the dis
tinguished Judge who delivered the opinion of the
Court in that case (having reference to this act of
lbbS) saying: "Had the statute enacted express
that without such appropriation the contract would
be void and no debt incurred, it could not, as far as
tbe liability of the city is concerned, have been more
mandatory or imperative than It is."
A contract now made under the provisions of the
resolution which I now return would, therefore, be
Invalid, and so plainly did this objection present
itself to my mind on ray first reading of your joint
resolution that I have forborne uny investigation ot
tbe facts in connection with the matter.
very respectfully, Daniel m. Fox,
Mayor of Philadelphia.
The resolution in question authorizes the City
Solicitor to prepare contracts with J. W. Murphy
for the main and Thirty-second street bridge
superstructure and the iron work of approaches;
with J. J. Kennedy for tbe graduation, masonry,
curbing-, and paving, and with the Pennsylvania
Kailroad Company for the erection of all work
westward ot retaining wall beyond thirtieth
street, as per proposals lor erecting a bridge
over the river Schuylkill at Falrrnount."
How a Plan was T.ald to Capture Them
How It aid not Work.
Last evening Superintendent Fracker. of the
North Pennsylvania Railroad, sent word to
Lieutenant Pritcbard, ot the Eleventh district,
that six burglars had gone np the road that
afternoon, and he had information leading to
tbe belief that they intended to "crack" a bank.
As there were no more out-tralns that evening,
the lieutenant sent omcers to watcn the down-
trains that arrived, in the hope that the depreda
tors might be ensnared upon their return. Two
trains came in, but brought no vestige of the
burglars. The Lieutenant, at 2 o'clock this

an attempt upon the Lansdale Bank,
but that the citizens, informed by
a message from the c Superintendent,
had surrounded the Institution upon which the
depredators were so industriously working,
with the intention of cutting off escape and
nagging tne wnoie. uniortunateiy ior these
strategic lellows, their zeal was too much for
them, and one of tbem could not restrain firing
off a gun. The shot was disastrous In its effects;
it alarmed the game, and what is worse, as the
injured man says, some portions lodged in the
body of one of their own party. A scene of
confusion ensued, and there were shouts of
"Don't shoot! Don't shoot! You will hit us!"
While this interesting drama was in progress
the wary robbers had ingeniously drawn off.
They made their way to a farmer's stable, stole
a team, rode over to a neighboring station on
the New York Railroad, and got away on the

FOUND DEAD IX A HOTEL.
More of the Woodhull-Clafllu Case.
A man about 45 years old, and rather poorly
dressed, called at French's Hotel late on Tues
day night and asked for a room. Nothing was
seen or heard of him after entering his room
until yesterday, when one of the chambermaids
having tried the door several times, and finding
It locked, finally procured a step-Udder, climbed
np, looked through tbe transom, and saw the
occupant lying on the floor, in his night cloth
ing, dead, lie had attempted, apparently, to
rise from his bed, and, being taken suddenly ill,
had fallen and struck his head against the door,
nearly forcing out one of the panels. From a
superficial examination the physician thought
that death resulted from natural causes. Tbe
body was sent to the Morgue, and a post-mortem
examination will be made to-day.
The only property found belonging to the de
ceased was a small satchel, containing a wallet
In which were $2-50, some medical prescrip
tions, and an envelope directed to ''Dr. B. F.
Sparr, No. 15 East Thirty-eighth street." There
was a writ of ejectment directed against Wood
hall & Clafiln, directing them to vacate the
premises No. 15 East Thirty-eighth street on or
before a certain date. An unsigned letter,
written in pencil, was directed to "Vlckey, Col.,
and Tenney included," and referred to
certain family matters, incidentally men
tioning the ejectment writ, expressing
the belief that tbe agent dare not
put them out, and suggesting thct something
ought to be done for "poor old mother, pa, and
Polly." There is no question but that the de
ceased Is a brother-in-law of the notorious
woman-brokers, and is the Dr. Sparr who was
characterized as a drone by Miss Tennie daring
the recent legal proceeding, at Essex Market
Police Court, and for whose support and that of
his wife she and her sister, Mrs. Woodhull,
some time ago ref need longer to contribute.

the night 'time. On Tuesday morning last
Matilda was found under a bed in the third
story, where she had been lying since the pro
ceeding Thursday, having been without food
during the interim. She then confessed that
she was subject to epileptic fits, and that she hid
under the bed te conceal herself during their
