8 ALL FOR LOVE. Two Arc Company, but Three Are Not. A Young Man Shoots His Inconstant lady-Lovo. Tho comparative qulot which has existed in Criminal matters during tho past two wooku was broken yesterday by an attempted murder and a serious stabbing affray. Tbo latior possesses nothing now or startling, but tho former boing on affair wherein a jealous lovor sought to enatoh from tho arms of his rival tho woman they both loved, taking her lifo, presents a ‘ phazo of human character which is hardly capablo of intelligent solu tion, slnco lovers generally doslro to oaro very tenderly for tbo objects of thoir loves. But tbo anomlay has at intervals trans pired of a lovor shooting his long-cherished ono, ■bocauso (and oftentimes in bor wisdom) she be came faithless to him and preferred another, and aftor committing tbo glorious deed, run ning off to bldo, and Chicago yesterday produced just such an auamoly. Tbo parties to tbo affair aro Annio Keenan a young and yory pretty girl, of 17 summers, twoyoungmon, named James Brady and John Buoluoy. Tim scone of THE BHOOTIHQ I was tho bouse of tho fathor of tbo girl, on Win ter street, Just west of tbo Transit House, at tbo Stock Yards. About sovon months have passed away slnco Brady, who is a carpenter by profession, but who,' it is said, does not handle tho tools of his trado very much, first mot Aunlo Keenan. With him It was lovo at first eight, aud, unlike hearts that aro easily impressed, bis affection grow as their knowledge of each other was extended. Miss Annio POSSESSED MANY (HURSTS, and charmed twice their number whenever sbo appeared in company. It is always disagreeable io bo in love with a popular girl. No young fol low ovor folk tho situation other than vexatious. So it has boon with James Brody. Old shoos and case woro not component parts of his nature when Miss Annio smiled for somo ono olso. At aucb timos a monster, whoso raiment is com monly supposed to ho green in oolor, would pub anger iu his heart, dovilish purposes in Ins mind, and FIRE IN TUB EYES: and as Annio did receive attention from others and would not Unfit tho clrclo of her associa tion, so that she would bo over walking around James Brody, this young man has boon, during the past seven months, a roost unhappy and wretched being. It is said that ho has threat ened to commit suicide, which would certainly have been a much braver and moro manly deed than that which ho attempted to accomplish last night. IE IT IS TRUE that lovo prompts such deeds as James Brody commuted last night, thon tho idea that lovo is tho most selfish or passions is sustained, and tho loss of lovo wo havo tho bettor wo shall do. DQADY HAS ENDURED very much, U is said, os Annie has boon a great coquette. But they have mode some progress. James has persisted and Annie resisted, but the former won for somo thno. Indeed, she par tially consented to bo his wife, but James spoiled all that by demanding that she receive no attention from anybody olso It was on this ecoro that tho shooting was done. Tho strong est rival bos boon a young man named Buckley. It was known to Brady that Buckley wont out yesterday afternoon with Annie. This so exasperated him that ho resolved it should not bo repeated. Accordingly, yesterday evening, about 0 o’clock, ho wont to tho house of his once prospective father-in-law, and, without knock ing, burst into tbo parlor. On a sofa sat tbo two that bad raised tho devilish purpose In his mind. Glancing furtively around, bo asked Miss Annie if she was out walking in tho afternoon WITH THAT MAN, pointing to Buckley. Annie said she was. brmly then asked her which of them she thought most of. Tho girl promptly answered that Buckley was her favorite. Whereupon Brady quickly drew a revolver from his breast and fired two shots at her. both of which took effect In the vicinity of tho heart. Tbo girl fell in tho arras of her acknowledged lover, cold and insen sible. Brady did not say a word, hat rushed out of tho house. He, however, did not at ONCE GO AWAY, but lingered around a few minutes. When asked what ho was going to do, ho replied that ho did right, and would surrender himself to-day. At no ©curly hour ihlo tUu gUX WUtS Very low and not expected to live. She is only about 17 years old, and is spoken of as a respectable and amiable girl. It is believed that Brady has left tho city. Ho is a heavy-set man, with swarthy complexion and black whiskers on his olun, and is gruff in his manner and speech. THOSE SPIKED QUADKANGULAES. How a Frightful Tragedy May Ho Prevented* Whether it will happen within a week, or a month, or oven a year, no ouo can toll, bat there is no doubt that some day or other either Judge Booth’s or Judgo Dorter’s Courts, or both, will be the scone of a sanguinary, oviscoratory tragedy, followed by a Coroner’s inquest. In tho floor of each room is a largo skylight round which is raised an iron guard,- about throe foot high, from tho top rail of which hustle, at regular two-inch intervals, sharp-pointed spikes, tho tout ensem ble of tho thing reminding ono of tho more hor rible pictures in Fox’s Book of Martyrs, and sug gesting tho terrors of tho Grand Inquisition. To muko certain of a fatal accident as soon as pos sible, tho cocoa-nut matting is ingeniously torn Into shreds, which catch the foot of the unwary and jerk him towards tho formidable chcvcux do friso. Already some minor accidents have re sulted thorofrom. One day last winter a juror slipped in close proximity to tho skylight, and, to savo himself from falling through and hurt ing tho clerKs below, ho, witii laudable solf-abuo gation, clutched spasmodically at the spikes, two of which wont through his hand, while a third ran up his thumb, severing tho sinew, and per manently disabling it. Later on, on intoxicated citizen foil prone npon tho spikes; but it was winter-time, and Ins three overcoats, two pea-jackets, and a multiplicity of vests and underclothing saved him from impale ment, and tho struggling mass was hoisted from danger by tho znimito-clork and tho bailiff. Still later and still sadder, a Times reporter hod his pocket ripped open by an ovil-tntoutionod spike, and tbo floor was instantly strewn with choice extracts from tho facetiae columns of third-class Beaky Mountain weeklies, with which ho was about to got up impromptu flashes of wit and merriment, with tho more prurient details of no torious divorce cases, and a commutation ticket issued by a southerly Fourth avenue eating house. Ladles’ mantles have boon ruined by the hundred, while every day ono or more of the spikes ore found to bo adorned with wav ing strips of varl-colorod cloth, ripped from tho flying tails of hurrying lawyers’ over coats. Take thorn altogether, thoso spiked quad xanctilara ore very dangerous institutions, and ought to be abolished, and tho Judges in whoso courts they are placed should not treat them with indifference, for the most upright Judgo in tho world is not proof against an occasional fall, aud anybody protending to ho a judgo must con foss that to have a tumble stopped half way by a thiakly-upikod iron-railing, would bo apt to bo followed by disagreeable results, somewhat simi lar to thoso experienced by tho suicidal disciples of hari-kari. THE CITY IN BRIEF. Yesterday afternoon, during the absence of tho occupant, tho room of O. E. McDougall, on Third avenue, near Harrison street, was broken into, and @IOO worth of clothing purloined. Yesterday morning, tho dead body of a young female haoo was found near the Four-Mile House, in a pile of rubbish, which had been de posited thoro during last week.

Tho following accoimt of tho affair was related to a Thiudne reporter by tho wounded man, last evening: About X o'clock tho Dolan party wont into Fuorlong’s saloon, on Coutro street, near Catherine, to got a drink. While standing at tho bar, a rough-looking follow bantered Frank Dolan to sing. Frank, being a warbler of somo local dis tinction. sustained hla reputation by accepting tho banter. Tho crowd became very merry, ana did not separate for somo time. ■ Tho Dolun party woro tho first to go out. Aftor leaving tho saloon, thoy crossed ovor to tho opposite side of tbo street, whoro thoy woro shortly joined by tbo other party.

Strange Awnrilii l»y ilio Imtlnn Com* inlniinn»A]lcir(!‘(l I’nrtlallty ami t’a« vorltlnm* From the AViif I’orJt film, Map fl. Tho awards of contracts for Indian supplies woro nmdo on Saturday last. Tho bids wore closed on tho 20th of April, and the intervening lime is supposed to havo been taken np in tho oaroful examination of the various bids and tho responsibility of tho bidders. The Commis sion consisted of Mr, E. I*. Smith, CommlßHionor of Indian Affairs; Mr. O. H. BUnvrt, Mr. Robert Campbell, Mr. John V. Fnrwoll, and Mr. W. 13. Dodge, tho wholo Commissiou being under tho supervision of Mr. B. H. Cowan, Assistant Sec retary of tho Interior. To Ihono woro added, Mr, Felix H. Bnmot and Mr. Nathan Bishop, Commissioners of Contracts for tbo Delivery of Supplies to tlio Indians. Tho competition for those contracts was yory spirited. Tho ontiro amount of contracts was ovor SI,GUO,OOO, to eocuro which ihoto was natu rally something of a scramble., Bidders woro S resent iu person, or by agonts. from Nevada, obraska, Kansas, and most of tbo Territories. These men bad traveled from 1,600 to 2,600 miles each in order to soouro contractu, and every ono of them brought with him tho moans for giving ample and most satisfactory security for tho per formance of whatever contract ho might under take. Tho supplies to bo furnished consist mainly of hoof (on tho hoof), bacon, flour, colTooo, brown sugar, soap, salt, saloratus, ana plug tobacco. Thero are thirteen agencies to bo supplied, which require supplies differing in quantity ac cording to tho number of Indians claimed to bo under tho immediate obnrgo of each. For in stance, tho Wbotstono, Grand River, and Hod Cloud Agencies, tho throo largest under tho In dian Bureau, require each 5,000,000 pounds gross weight of beef caitlo, ou tho hoof ;. 800,000 pounds bacon, clear slues, or. 26,000 pounds par month; 1,200,000 pounds XX flour, or 100,000 pounds per month; 100,000 pounds coffee, green; 200,000 pounds host brown sugar; 12,000 pounds plug tobacco, iu boxes; 26,000 pounds best brown soap, in boxes ; 6,000 pounds saloratus, in boxes. . On tho othor hand tbo Blackfeot Agency calls for only 8,000 pounds of coffee (green); 12,000 pounds host brown sugar; 0,000 pounds best brown soap, in boxes ; 9,000 pounds salt, fine, in barrels; 3,000 pounds plug tobacco, in boxes. Tiioro woto also bids for transportation, as tho articles are to bo delivered at certain central points, and thence transported to tbo several outlying agencies. Tho competition among tho 'Western men for beef on tho hoof and transportation is always particularly lively, for tho reason that those two items fall more immediately within their special dealings. But there is never any lack of rivalry in every branch of tho business. When the Commissioners mot to open their bids it was found that there wore no loss than 161 propositions. A number of persons had, however, bid on more than one article, so tho number of diltoront bidders was probably about GO. After a week of consultation, in which it is charged,' there was a great deal of ‘‘ addition and division’* done, and a groat deal of “ bl lonco ” promised, tho awards wore mado public, and tho Commission instantly dissolved ana sepa rated, in order it would seem to out oil all chance of appeal or remonstrance on tho part of certain ones who doomed themselves wronged by tho awards. Certain influential men from tho far West, who came hero with tbo moans .to guaran tee by tho most unquestionable money bonds their ability to carry out any contract they might nmko, do not hesitate to boldly charge glaring partiality and favoritism in tho giving out of the various contracts. They say that not only was tho grossest pref erence shown to certain friends of tho Commis sioners in cases whore tho bids wore tied as to amount, by invariably giving them tho contracts in full, instead of dividing them between tho two, as fairness ami justice required ; bat tho charge is boldly made, aud is supported by fig ures, that in several instances tbo lowest bidders wore entirely ignored, and their bids thrown out, while tho awards wore made at a much higher figure to tho friends of tho immaculate Indian liiug. And this was done in a purely arbitrary manner, no pretence being made that the lowest bidders wore not perfectly responsi ble, no exception whatever being taken to their indorsors, but tho thing being simply carried with a high hand, and all reasons fur the action refused. A gentleman from Omaha, states that bo put in a Did to furnish 10,000,000 pounds of boor on tho hoof at $2.72 por hundred; his bid was thrown out, and tho contract awarded to a epoc olal friond of ono of tho Board at 32.72 W. Only a dilToronco of half a oont a pound, it is true, but then half a cont a pound on 10,000,000 is $50,- 000, which somebody divides, and somebody olso has to pay. No protonco was mado that tho lowest bidder was not able to abide by his con* tract. Indeed, ho was prepared to give security on his various hide to tho amount af half a mill ion of dollars, but aa ho evidently didn’t under stand 44 division.*' ho was counted out. In another instance xnauy thousands of Founds of bacon woro awarded to tho favorod rioud of ouo of tho Board at 10X cents a pound, to bo delivered at Kansas City, when another bidder offered to deliver it at tho Bod Cloud Agency, whore it was wonted, for 12 cents a pouod. Now this bacon has to bo transported from Kansas City to Cheyenne GOO miles by rail, then 130 miles by wagon to Bod Cloud, tbo trans portation costing 2|sconta a pound, besides tbo “ shrinkage,** which is a trifle over 6 por cont. Thin is a loss of 15,000 pounds of bacon, which, at 18 cents, its value at Bed Cloud, is $105,000, which makes another nice little sum to divide. Tho lowest bidder hod agreed to deliver the ba con at Bod Cloud, full weight, for precisely the same price that Undo Barn’s economical Com missioners pay their friond and favorite, and then have 15,000 pounds 44 shrinkage.” A well known contractor from Leavenworth offered to dollvor beef on tho hoof at any or all of tho agencies at an average price of $2.45. but his bids woro unceremoniously shut out, ana the contract awarded to others at from to $2.7C)£. Yet ho was able to justify in tho amount of a million of dollars, aud to furnish any security that might ho required that ho would fulfill bis bargain. At tho rooms of tho Commissioners there wore last Saturday between forty and fifty bidders who, although tboy had offered to take tho con tracts for less money than those who actually secured them, woro shut out of tho gamo entirely. Many of thoso woro men who had traveled many thousands of miles to got those contracts, which they can execute hotter than any others because of their knowledge of tho business and tho country. ‘Those mou assort that tho favoritism has boon so barefaced and palpable that they anticipate no difllculty in having tho wholo thing ripped up, and tho contractu again thrown open to tho lowest bidders. Accordingly a largo aologation of those who woro so unceromoniously ignored by tho Commissioners, having collectod full otutomoiits of factu and figures, started on Mon day mght for Washington to lay tho matter be fore Secretary Delano. Their array of figiu'OH is so strong that any honest Boorotary must bo con vinced that there has been unfair dealing some where. If Delano belongs to that class ho will redress whatever wrong has been done, and savo to tho United titatos tons and perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars. Iho DcslTXolncu Valley itailroad Case* From the VeaMoitiea (Iowa) Slay 0, Tho ease of tho foreclosure of tho second mort gage bonds of the DosMoinos Valley Hoad, to bo tried at tho approaching special term of tho Polk County Circuit Court, probably involves a larger amount of monoy than any othor cause ever before sot for trial in an lowa court. Tho second mortgage bonds are for @4,600,000. They are secured by a first mortgage on tho road from DosMoinos to Fort Dodgo, ami by a second mortgage on tho road from DosMoinos to Keokuk. Tho suit Is brought by tho Trnstocs of tho owners of tho bonds, Messrs. Oillman & Oowdry, of Now York. Tho latter, wo boliovo, is President of tho road. Messrs. Catch, Wright & Huimolts represent tho plaintiffs, and Grant & Smith, of Davenport, assisted by Wm. M. Evarts, of flow York, represent the first mortgage bondholders, who auk for the foreclosure or their mortgage at tho same lime. Tins first mortgage amounts to @2,310,000. Each of the mortgages bears interest at tho rato of 8 nor cent, and is due—principal and in terest—wlionavor tho Company fail to pay the interest. None of the interest has ovor been paid. In addition to tho two classes of bondholders above named, the Illinois Telegraph Company; tho Dos Moines River Navigation Company ; Flynn, Maroy <k Company, woro made defend ants in the original sou. There are also several othor.croditors that may yot ho included at thoir own request,'„ ■; j t Tho aggregate amount of.Judgments and claims against tho railroad company, outside or tho mortgages; represented In tho lotion for fore closure, Is obout $125,000. Ono of tho dolioato points to bo dooldod at tho hearing of tho causo, ;Wlll bo tho position those claims will occupy in tho distribution of tho > proceeds of tho sale; At first glanoo It would seem that tho mortgage. 1 would bo sufilniont to hold all tho money, only tho road should ho sold for moro than enough to satisfy them—of which' there Is no prospect. But homo of tho claims aro said to ho iu tho na ture of n mechanic's Hon, aud still others of somo other character that might reasonably ho doomed a. bar' to thoir, refusal, nil of which, aside from tho vast monetary Issues Imolvod, will mnko tho case full of intercut. . In still another way will tho canno excite atten tion. It Is said, that tho real contestants aro tho . first '• and second bond mortgage holders—rono desiring to havo tho road sold In order thol thoy may hid it in and operate It; tho others being equally de sirous to havo tho present status remain un changed—they being already In possession. It Is also sold that tho wretohod condition of tho road, tho Inconvenient ami unprofitable running tlmo now In use, and,the look of propor connec tions with other roads, Is a part of a schomo to so depreciate tho value of tho property that It can bo bought for loss than its real worth. : Tho trustees for tho first mortgage bondhold ers arc Luther G.
