rFrZCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DtSrATCH.l
Syracuse, Is. Y., January 14. George
Thorndill, who lives near this city, has
been in this country since the fifties, but re
tains a kindly feeling toward his old sover
eign, "Victoria. Desiring to give a token of
their affection for the Queen of Great Britain
and Empress of India, on November 7 Mr.
and Mrs. Thorndill sent her a barrel filled
ith seven kinds of the finest apples raised
on their place. The first response was re
ceived four weeks ao to-day, and the letters
that have been coming evfT since from the
different bn&ches of the English court indi
cate that the royal household must have
been thrown into a state of high excitement
over the barrel of apples from America.
The first letter received by Mr. Thorndill
was on roval paper, stamped "Windsor
Castle," and is supposed to have been penned
by the Master of the Koyal Household,
though it was unsigned. It reads:
Wixdsor Castle, 7th December, 1SSS.
The Master of the Household presents his
compliments to Mr. Thorndill, and has the
honor to inform him that the Queen is very
sensible of his attention in forwarding for Her
Majesty's acceptance the case of apples which
arrived here yesterday.
OK HOME RULE TArEK.
The next letter that arrived was printed iu
a rich green that would answer for a home
rule document. It is as follows:

27th December, 1SS& J
Sir The Lord Steward has received from
Bir Henry I'onsonberry your letter of tho 6th
of November last, and desires me to sav that
the apples which you wished to present to the
Queen arrived safely, and are now being used
in Her Majesty's service. I am to thank you
for this kind intent ion of yourself and of your
wife in making this offering. The good feeling
is duly appreciated in high quarters, but as
Her Majesty, by Itule, does not accept pres
ents, the Lord .Steward must ask you to ac
cept, as an equivalent of value, a small sum of
3, which he judges may represent the outlay.
The Pay master of the Household has accord
incly received instructions to send the same to
you at Svracuse. Yours faithfully,
Thomas. C. MARCn.
Mn. George TnoitNDiLL, Syracuse, U. S.
As the barrel of Yankee apples neared
the royal presence the plot seemed to
thicken, and the next to pay his respects to
Mr. Thorndill was the Eoyal High Pay
master, who evidentlv is called on to settle
Her Majesty's grocery bills. This Is the
note which the high grocery bill payer sent,
accompanying the "cheque" for 3:

Mr. Thorndill and his wife hope that the
apples have got to the Queen by this time.
They feel very proud oi their correspondence
from the English court, and they like to
think of the Queen of England and the Em
press of India enjoying their Northern

OSE JUROR EXPLAINS.
Timothy O'Lenry, Sr., ay it TVn but
Natural for the Conrt to Discharge the
Hard-Workinc Grand Jury No Oc
casion for Fuss.
Inasmuch as considerable surprise was ex
pressed by evening papers in regard to the
summary dismissal of the grand jury by
Judge Collier yesterday, conjecture was
rife as to the probable cause of the dismissal.
The Judge said, in dismissing the jury:
Gentlemen of the grand jury, you have been
in session six weeks and a little over. Ve
already hare more business than we will bo
probably able to dispose of at this term. We
are of the opinion that the interest of the public
will be subserved by allowing the remaining
cases to go over. By going to the commis
sioners you will receive your pay and you are
now discharged with tbo thanks of the Court.
A prominent county official said, in re
gard to the action of the Court: "This has
no precedent within my knowledge or recol
ection, and there is something behind it I
understand that neither court nor attorneys
have confidence in this grand jury. There
fore the jury was discharged."
Dispatch reporters last evening called
upon several of the jurors, with the follow
Joseph Stokely, the Fifth avenue drug
gist, was indisposed, and could not be seen.
Mr. Timothy O'Leary, Sr., said in sub
stance: "I know no cause for this fuss or
fun in the afternoon papers. The jury did
a large amount of work; more; probably,
than any preceding jury during its six
weeks' existence, and it was but the natural
order of things when it was discharged."
Efforts were made to see Messrs. Barry,
Boden and Justice, but owing to circum
stances interviews with them were impossi

fSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE D1SFATCII.2
New York, January 14.-One of the
most curious facts Ehown by an analysis of
the past year's business reports is the un
usnal development of accident insurance.

panies, beside assessment concerns, doing
business in the United States.

The Inquest Shows Tbat It Was Quite Good

The inquest into the Wood street disaster
was resumed yesterday by the Coroner. The
evidence goes to show that the mortar pos
sessed fair binding power. Captain Hunt,
of the Pittsburg Labratory, examined a
sample and reported that it contained four
parts sand to one part lime. A better pro
portion would have been three parts sand to
one of lime.
However, the general tenor of the testi

Yesterday's session of Select Council was
as good as a play. The members had "lash-
ins" of fun, though the subject was a grave
one an ordinance providing against the
spread of contagious or infectious diseases
by indiscriminate attendance at funerals.
During the session, however, the Presi
dent read a communication from Chief
Brown, of the Department of Safety, as fol
lows: To the President and Members of Select and Com
mon Council of tne City orJflttsburg:
Gentlemen I deem it proper to officially
notify you that on Wednesday, January 9, a
seven-story building, known as tho Wllley
building, situated on Diamond alley, near Wood

respectfully ask your honorable bodies to pass
a resolution authorizing the Controller of the
city to pay the expense incurred therein, when
said bills have been properly audited and
passed by him.
I desire to officially convey the thanks of this
department to the many individuals, firms and
corporations tbat rendered valuable assistance
to this department, among them the firm of
Booth A Flmn; Pier, Dannals fc Co.; Contrac
tors James McKnight and Chaulk, the Alle

the greatest loss to any one firm is that suffered

Very respectfully yours.
J. O. Brown,
Chief of the Department of Public Safety.
The report was received and a resolution
authorizing the Controller to pay the bills in
curred was passed. The resolution was then
messaged to the Common Council and passed
finally at once.
t -WHERE THE FUN CAME TS.
The first section of the interment ordi
nance provides that the undertaker must
place the body of each person whose death
resulted from Asiatic cholera, yellow fever,
smallpox, diphtheria, typhoid fever, scarlet
fever, iu a close casket within six hours
alter being notified. The first section was
finally passed after amending by inserting
11 o'clock r. M., instead of 7 as the limit
for the undertaker to receive notice of a
death. The second and third sections were
passed upon and adopted without amend
ment, but the fourth section, which prohib
its holding services over the remains of
persons having died of contagious diseases
in churches or chapels.
The tilt heated some of the members for a
row when tne ordinance regulating the
manner and the time in which corpses should
be buried when death resulted from in
fectious or contagious diseases. The body
had gone into committee of the whole, Mr.
Robertson in the chair.
Mr. Cox opened the ball by stating that
doctors didn't know diphtheria from croup.
Mr. Sullivan held that undertakers knew
as much as doctors about contagious diseases,
and then gave Mr. Lambie a stab by inti
mating that they didn't know as much
about them as either doctors or undertakers,
and Mr. Skelton put in that he knew a case
where a child died from croup and the
doctor had stated that the disease was
diphtheria. He didn't believe that scarlet
fever was contagious.
Dr. Evans admitted that it might be pos
sible for a doctor to be unable to say
whether a patient had membranous croup
or diphtheria, but he argued that it did the
dead no harm to be boxed up within six
hours, no matter what the disease, and the
interest of the living ought to be con
sulted. Lawyer Lambrie came back at Mr. Sulli
van, stating that he, Lambrie, didn't pro
fess to know anything except what be had
been told by good authority, and thought it
sate to go to people who did know for in
formation. He read statistics to show that
in the last 15 years nearly three times as
many people had died from scarlet fever
and diphtheria as from smallpox, and that
medical authorities pronounced the first two
IT -WAS INCISIVE.
There was a sharp discussion between Mr.
Cox and Dr. Evans, and the last shot fired
by the doctor was an assertion that Mr. Cox
couldn't get the diphtheria if he wanted to.
By this time the mercury was up, and
Mr.'Sullivan's glasses danced down to the
point of his nose, and he got into the hub
instead of the fourth section, which, the
fifth, restricted the attendance at such
funerals, and did not allow the body to be
taken into church. Mr. Sullivan insisted
that Catholics must be allowed to conduct
this part of such affairs to suit themselves.
Though very much in earnest, Mr. Sullivan
joined in the laugh at his expense, but
nevertheless the discussion of the wrong sec
tion went on for some time.
Dr. Evans I don't think the gentleman
speaks lor his church in the matter. Cath
olics do not want to spread disease any more
than do other people.
Mr. Epping I move we adjourn.
The Chair You are out of order. The
committee of the whole does not adjourn.
It rises aud reports progress.
Dr. Evans The Catholics do not take
corpses into the church in case of death
from smallpox. The diseases we have been
discussing are equally dangerous.
Section 4, relating to time in which the
body must be boxed, attendance at house
and number of carriages allowed, was
stricken our, someone in the lobby re
marking that it was a
VICTORY FOE UNDERTAKERS.
Mr. Epping's motion to insert ten instead
of six hours la the section requiring prompt
action on the part of the persons having a
dead body in charge was withdrawn before
it was voted on.
Dr. Evans The officers of thiscitv should
get a big club after the doctors who, by a
large majority, skulk about making th'eir
reports, and seldom ever make themprompt
lv, as the law requires.
' Mr. Skelton The Board of Health is just
as negligent as the doctors.
Chairman Robertson Well, never mind
the Board of Health now; we'll give it
thunder in the next ordinance.
The fourth section was finally agreed to,
but before they got through with the fifth
Dr. Grimes moved that the committee rise
and report progress, so that the ordinance
still remains in the committee of the whole.

Works to compel the Pittsburg, Virginia

THE GOOD WORK
GOES BRAVELY ON. x
Down Go the Prices,
has awakened bargain seekers to the fact that now, if ever, is the time to
lay in supplies in Clothing, Cloaks, Shoes, Hats, Furnishing Goods and
Trunks, if 'the object of the buyer is (o save money. We cannot, of
course, go into particulars about every department, and have concluded
A FEW OF OUR SHOE BARGAINS:
M00 PAIRS MEN'S GOOD CALF DRESS SHOES AT $1 25.
We show these goods in all lengths and widths, and guarantee them
superior to any 2 Shoes sold elsewhere. Don't fail to get a pair for
$1 25. You'll never have another chance.
700 PAIRS MEN'S FINE CALF-SEWED SHOES, $2 50.
Unlike other dealers we don't palm these Shoes off as genuine
hand-sewed at fictitiously high prices, but sell them for what they are,
viz: Best Machine-sewed. Their regular price is $4.
800 MEN'S FRENCH CALF HAND-MADE SHOES, $3 75.
No shoemaker can make to order a better pair of shoes than these,
no matter what he may charge, and no shoe store in the city sells the
same quality shoes below $5 50, while many ask even $6 for them.
::: 950 LADIES' GOOD KID BUTTON SHOES, $!. :::
These Shoes are free from tacks, very comfortable and substantial,
and are guaranteed to outlast any $2 Shoes bought in other stores.
1,000 Pairs Ladies' Kid and Pebble Congress Shoes, 98c.
These Shoes are great favorites with elderly ladies. We have them
in all sizes, and their regular price is $1 75. Get a pair for 98c.
875 PAIRS KID AND BRIGHT D0NG0LA SHOES. $! 98.
These Shoes are excellent for street wear, being made of very tough
leather and modeled in exact conformity with the human foot, thus in
suring perfect comfort to the wearer. They are worth every cent-of $3.
60Q Pairs Ladies' Hand-Turned BrightDongoIaShoes, $2 50.
A finer Shoe than these is hardly to be found anywhere, though we
charge but $2 50 a pair for them. Before our sweeping-out sale, how
ever, these shoes were sold at $4, at which price they were considered
cheap by all who bought them. ,
::: 2,000 PAIRS LADIES' RUBBER SHOES, 19c. :::
These Rubbers, though they are sold for a mere trifle, are perfectly
waterproof. We have all sizes. Their regular price is 50c.
3,000 Bottles Bixby's Celebrated Shoe Dressing, 5c.
Every lady knows that Bixby's French Dressing is sold everywhere
for 15c Our price (only 5c) is but an indication of how
