4 WILL HE BE RESTORED ? George J. Brine r. The Board of: Trade. 'The Case Brought Before Judge Williams Yesterday, Argument of Messrs. Dent and Black for Respondent Points Which "Will he Made by Messrs. Swett and Herrick on Monday, Yesterday morning the case of Geo. J, Brine ,v. tho Chicago Board of Trade came np before His Honor Judge Williams on an application for a mandamus to restore the former to his mem bership in the Board. Mr- fiwett, for the petitioner, submitted in support of the motion various affidavits, the substance of which has already been given in THETBIBmfE. MESSES. PE2fT & BLACK, for respondent, tiled an answer, wherein, after saving all Just exceptions to : the excep tionable matters in the petition, it is stated that the respondeat is a corporate body, organ ized by the State Legislature in 1859, .. The pe titioner was for many years a member of the Board, and his firm (John B, Lyon & Co.) did a large business. As to the amount of his trans actions the respondent has no information, and does not say whether the figures in the petition are correct or not. In 1872 the firm of J. B. Lyon & Co., to which petitioner belonged, was running a wheat corner. It is also ‘ admitted that his partners, Lyon & Kioo, and Culbertson, Blair & C0.,-were members of the Board. It was also well known that Lyon, Brine, and Bice were partners, and hod signed an agreement that they would,'- in their dealings with each other and tho Board of. Trade, bo bound by the rules, regula tions, and bye-laws of the latter-as they then were, or might thereafter be. The respondent ' admits that in August last Lyon & Co. contract ed with Culbertson, Blair & Co. for tho purchase of tsn thousand bushels of spring wheat, No. 2. The petitioner’s firm deposited a margin, and, under the rules of the Board, Culbertson, Blair & Co., bad a right to call on them for an addi tional Bum, which they refused to give, the real reason being that they were hard-up, or that they had to suspend, not being able to pay for the large quantities of wheat bought for future delivery. Admitting what 'was uaid about the inspection of wheat to be true, • yet the petitioner’s firm could not be thereby released from its obliga tions, and no such excpse was made to Cnlbert son, Blair & Co. If the firm hadsuch a defense, ‘it should have been made before the Board of' Directors. The answer then goes on to recapitu late the facts connected with the trial and sus pension of the petitioner, and states that, during all these protracted proceedings, the petitioner conceded the regularity of the of the Board of Directors, that it operated on him per sonally and individually, and the order of sus pension applied to his individual case. The respondent, by its charter, was authorized to establish such rules and regulations aa it saw fit; had tho right to admit or expel such per sons aa it deemed proper, and could make, from time to time, such laws as it saw fit for the gov ernment of the corporation, when not opposed to the laws of the land. Under these rules, the Board of Directors was authorized to take juris diction of the complaint, and that its proceed ings should not be repudiated by reason of any matter not brought to the attention of the Board on bearing the complaint, every essential lorznhavingbeen observed. Thepetitionerhasnot been given a ticket of admission, but will receive one when ho satisfactorily settles his contracts. The respondent, referring to the petitioner’s proposition to deposit with the Board of Direc tors United States bonds sufficient in amount to cover the claim of Culbertson, Blair & Co., if they won their pending suit, says the offer was gfeTone of form ’ only, but preliminary to petition Qtetor a mandamus for restoration. Even if tho had been actually tendered, the Board, in Hche absence of Culbertson, Blair A Co., should have taken any action m the matter. More over, the Board has full jurisdiction in a case like that of the petitioner not subject to be oust ed by other proceedings. By becoming a mem ber of the Association tho petitioner assented to such jurisdiction, as he also did by appearing to answer the complaint made; and excepting at no time to the jurisdiction of the Board. Kor should the Court in this proceeding, go into the investigation of any question touching the right of Culbertson, Blair & Co. to recover in any suit pending against J; B. Lyon &. Co., and the respondent . should not be called on to take part in a discus sion of them. The respondent, while claiming it irrele vant, denies the construction placed by the pe titioner on the action of J. B. Lyon & Co., when called on for their additional margin.* Nor should the contract bo so construed os to permit j. B. Lyon & Co. to offer wheat at any time during August. If ■ they “ en-. tertained a different opinion, they should have stated their objection to having the contract considered as being filled. J. B. Lyon & Co., had at the time of the call on them no in tention of fating tho 'wheat, and voluntarily submitted to the closing of tho contract. The petition is therefore regarded as disingenuous •where it says the petitioner’s firm was able to take the wheat and pay for it, they having noto riously failed in business. The petition is in consistent with itself, and shows that J. B. Lyon & Co. were unable or unwilling to take tho wheat.' The respondent, after pointing out other inconsistencies in the petition, demea that it shows any valid excuse for the non-deposit of ~ additional . margins, and that if the petitioner had one he did not state it. Thein epection of grain had little, if anything, to .do with the firm troubles. The respondent denies that action in the complaint of Culbertson, Blair & Co. depended on any action by any com mittee of arbitration or appeals, or any adjudi cation by them, or in any court of law. If tho petitioner’s firm had been willing to leave the question of liability to the Arbitration Commit tee tmder tho rules, doubtless the suggestion would have been given duo weight. But no de fence having been made before the Board, they should not have referred the claim to any com mittee. The Board had a right to act on the com plaint, and, in doing so, did not transgress the laws of the land, or disregard the rights of the petitioner as a member of the Association, he having ample time, opportunity, etc., to ap pear and be heard, and understood that the matr ter referred to him personally, ot he would have i made & defense, or applied for time to make one. The Board acted impartially, and it is de nied that one of its members was disqualified ' from acting. If he fras, tho objection should have been made sooner. ~ The respondent has not been informed that the claim of Culbertson, Blair & Co. has been satisfied, and cannot admit that the fact they have instituted a suit, is a reason for restoring the petitioner or disturbing the order of suspension. While the Board took action against J. B. Lyon & Co., yet it was known to apply to all the individnal members, . F.or these and other reasons it is submitted that the prayer of the petitioner be not granted; HESSES. SWEET AXD HEBUICK have prepared an argument upon demurrer to the answer, and which will be submitted to-mor row, when the consideration of the case is re turned. The chief points are as follows : The Board of Trade is a corporation possess ing only the powers .derived from ite charter . whoso members have certain well-defined rights, and as such, the Corporation is responsible to the State for any abuse of its powers, and suV j ect to its control through ita courts. The writ of mandamus is the proper remedy to restore a person to his' standing as a member of a cor poration, when ho has been improperly or ille gally removed. A corporator can be disfran chised only for an infamous offense like perjury, after conviction by . the courts, for on offense against his duty as a corporator, in which case he expelled on trialand conviction by the Corporation, and when a mixed offense has been committed. When the charter, as in the present cose, authorized the corporation in general -terms to .admit or expel such persons as they might see fit without specifying causes, it is - merely affirmative of .the common law right to do so for a reasonable'cause. The courts have granted , the writ of mandamus to restore dis franchised members in many cases, several of which ere referred to, and it is concluded from them that courts will interfere where, from the Courts’ construction of the charter, it deter mines tb*.t the expulsion is not authorized by it, where the by-laws have been incorrectly con-' strued, the proceedings hare been irregular, or the facts shown do not establish the offense. Mr. Brine’s history is given, and it is stated that disfranohisemenbdcprives- him ofhia oeen.-, pation and means of support. The charter of the-Board of Trade provided the corporation could admit and expel persons. One of the rules provided the Board of Directors should examine charges of misconduct against any member,- and; if be bad failed to comply with tub terms of any business contract, should suspend him. The operations of J. B. Lyon & Co. are men tioned, and it is claimed they received 400,000 bushels of fraudulently inspected wheat, and then quit.. It is claimed that Culbertson, Blair & Co. did nothing to bind Lyon & Co. ou the contract. The firm of Lyon & Co. was reported to the Directors, and not the individual mem bers. At that time, too, a suit was pending against Lyon & Co. in the courts. : ■ , The power of disfranchisement was in the membere of the corporation, not in the Board of and it was a power which could not be delegated. To allow that Board to try issues concerning contracts was to oast the courts of their jurisdiction. The questions were judicial and intricate, and not yet settled by the Supremo Court, Since all judicial power was vested in the courts, they could not bo exercised by the corporation, and least of all by the Directors. A trial of a firm, too, had no more legal effect than that of a neighborhood. Even if Mr. Brino consented, it could not confer jurisdiction. Pro ceedings to disfranchise or amove. are. in fact trials, and where no mode is prescribed they must be in the form of judicial proceedings. The tribunal must have jurisdiction, must be espe cially convened for that purpose, the accused has the right to a specific charge, reasonable time to prepare, to be defended by counsel, and unless he pleads guilty sufficient evidence to establish the csss must be Introduced, and a finding must be had npon such proofs or upon bis confession. Judicial powers can never be delegated, and for this reason the Board cannot delegate this power to»select body. ~ ' „ ' The power to disfranchise being both discre tionary and judicial, tho authorities agree that where that power ie by tho charter reposed in the body of the corporation, it cannot be dele gated to a select number unless the charter an- Uiorizcß headway. The suspense of the petitioner until ho shall pay Culbertson, Blair & Co, £4,C00 bo does not Owe them is practical disfran chisement, and the finding by the Board that a contract bad been violated, and that the meas ure of damages was $4,600, involved the exer cise of those judicial functions which are vested only in the courts. Here the provision of the Constitution, that no man shall bo deprived of his property but by tho judgment of hie peers or the law of tho land, is quoted,and various au thorities referred to to, show what are judicial questions within the meaning of the Constitu tion, all tending to prove that the Board of Di rectors has not tho power It assumed, the as certainment of the facts on which it was based being judicial, within tho moaning of the Consti. tutiou. ; Tho demurrer concludes by referring to the case of the People ex reL Page v. The Board of Trade, and affirms that that case, by implication decides that theßoard of Directors can only act upon offenses, against tho corporation arising from a failure to comply with business contracts, where a definite amount is admitted to be due, and tho Court does not pass at all npon the right of thc'corporatiou to delegate the power of THAT LUMBER COMBINATION, An Interview witb Mr* B. A, tovci land—The Whole Affair Explained. A startling telegram from Troy, N, Y., ap peared in the evening papers yesterday, stating that twelve lumber firms, members of a combi nation to control the Western lumber markets, hail suspended, their liabilities being $9,000,000. Their names were given as White 4 Co., Albany; S. W. Barnard 4 Co., New York; O. Richards <6 Sons, Sandy Hill; B. W. Adams & Co., New York; Bodge & Co., New York; Pago 4 Co., Oswego; G. B- Nichols 4Co„ Albany; the,Williamshnrgh Mill and lumber (knnpany; Chambers 4 Co., Cleve land ; Watson 4 Switches, Chicago; Barton 4 Spencer, Elizabeth' and B. A. Loveland, Chi cago. Since neither lumbermen nor any one else here bad heard anything of ench a combination, and since the controlling the Western market, espe cially by a lot of Eastern firms, is a matter of some difficulty, the dispatch occasioned much surprise. An interview with Mr. If. 'A. Love land, a member of a Chicago firm mentioned in the dispatch, elicited the real facts in the case, and made the matter comprehensible; It appears that the combination had nothing to do with controlling the Western lumber market, that being an impossibility, and he be ing the only Western man in the combination. They were entirely engaged in the Canada trade, a section from which Chicago receives ho lum ber at all. Of the firms involved, that of White 4 Co., consists of D. L. White, of Albany, S. W. Barnard, of New York, and A- V. Pago, of Oswego". That of Bodge & Co. consists of A. O. P.Bodga, who was the oldest son of William £.. Bodge, of a Mr. Hunt, and of some others. Mr. Bodge was formerly a Snembor of the firm of White 4 Co., but sold out last winter. Their joint affairs have not been settled up, and are still much complicated. The Canada timber lands from which these firms obtained their Inmher are owned by White 4 Co., Bodgeis 4 Bon, and Adams 4 Co., who were Indebted to S. W. Barnard to the extent of about 32,000,000, which ho was carrying for them, hut probably, owing to the stringency of the money market, the fall in the price of lumber owing to the high freights, and the large stock of lumber he had at the mills and in the market, he was compelled to suspend. Chambers 4 Co., of Cleveland, and one or two - others of . the firms mentioned, were simply agents for selling Bodge's lumber." Of the firm of “Watson 4 Swirtohell,” of Chicago, Mr. Loveland knows nothing, and says be is the only Western man concerned. His connection with the transaction arose from the fact that, for this Eastern .business, ha was in partnership with White, Barnard 4 Page, who had a ■ right to sign the . firm . name,' and .ha does not yet > know to what extent their paper has boon put on the market. It may injure -him severely, but l will not affect his Western business, and will hart no one at the West. l All his debts here are .pro vided for; and. soma of them were settled np yesterday. He. understands, too, that an ar rangement has been made by which an exten sion of time has been secured, in which case everything can bo . satisfactorily arranged, and they can go along as before. THE SPORTING WORLD. BILLIARDS. Übassy, the great French player, whose ex ploits in tho South are the theme of general con versation among those who know anything about billiards, arrived in Chicago, from St. Louis, yesterday morning, accompanied by Mr. Charles Lacomne, ‘of New Orleans. They were taken in charge' by ‘Mr. n Tom Foley, ; and during the ‘ day ‘ were shown -raround the city, and introduced to all the prominent, billiard, men. TJbaasy will hardly become popular, in a social way, as he cannot speak a word of English. He appears to he a gentle manly and unpretending sort of person, how ever, —a second Carmo, minus the lazy habits and slouchy gait. Foley’alkali was continually crowded during the day. by people who wore anxious to witness his skill; but ho did not play, owing to the fatigue incident to travel.' His future movements in this city have ‘ not - yet been definitely agreed upon. Ho ‘will remain for two or three weeks 'in any event, and longer if a money-match’ can be arranged with any of our ambitious local players. Bessunger appears to be the only man' who can be depended upon, as Bhinea is put of tho ring, Snyder out of practice, and Goon out of tho city. Yermeulen’s hands are sore, and young Sloason has not had sufficient experience m the French game to warrant him in playing it with such a man as Übassy. Tom Foley author izes ua to announce that Übassy does not feel altogether competent to give Bessunger the odds of a discount. He has heard a great deal about his playing from Chicago people traveling in the South, and ia satisfied that he is a much more dangerous man with a cue than Miller, of New Orleans. He is anxious to meet him in a series of matches, however, and will give * him 200 points in 600, or a third of any number of points maybe agreed upon, for $250 or SSOO a ride each game. It is doubtful if Beesunger’s friends will accept this proposition, hut Übassy is writing foran answer, and until it is received no better terms can be given. The Frenchman cares, nothing about such trifling matters as tables and balls; Bes sunger can select those to suit himself. As Soon as a suitable ball can be secured; Übassy will give public exhibitions. He will ’show the peo-. pie that he can play just as well with the left hand as’ with the right, and that he ’ can make more wonderful shots than,either Canoe,’Bn dolphe, or Oamier.. Tho Amphitheatre would THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, MAY 25, 1873. be an excellent place in which to give the exhi bitions, and it ought to be engaged if .possible. - BASE BALI Several of the gentlemen who were ly connected with ‘the-drigmal Chicago Base Ball Clnb, and .who admire the game forits own eak9, : and not for the money that .may he made ont of it, are engaged m an effort to bring to this city, during Jubileo week, two of the best cinbs in the East, and have them play championship and ex hibition games. Tho Philadelphia club, which has already made a splendid record, will certainly he one of them, as it is composed almost eatlrcly ot players who have been engaged in this city at one time or another. The other may.’ be ; the Boston, or Baltimore, or Atlantic, of New York, all of which are crack organizations. It would . seem, however, that the Atlantic is the best of the three, aa it has defeated the Philadelphia Clnb this season in a close and exciting game. The only difficulty that the gentlemen appre hend will arise, if at all, in seeming proper grounds on which to play.' Green’s Garden, on West Madison street, which would be a very convenient place, can be had, but it is deemed too small to accom modate the immense audiences that first-class games would be certain to attract. The Twenty second street ground, which was fitted np last season, is still in good repair, having abundant seating accommodations, and being unrronnded by a high and. substantial fence. It is hardly probable that the owners of the improvements will offer any serious objections to thoir.heing used for a week or so this season, especially as they are in imminent danger of rotting away or being chopped np for kindling-wood by the impeennions persons who reside in the vicinity. The owner of the ground fencedinhas not yet been approached, but will be daring the ' present week. If he does the fair thing, the clubs will bo sent for, and Chicago will have a repetition of the exciting days of ’7O and *7l. There is no financial risk in the venture, as the games will undoubtedly he liberally patronized.; Tho members of the clubs to be invited know the reputation of Chicago in this respect, and will have no hesitation in coming. The names of the gentlemen who are managing the enter prise will be given when the arrangements are completed. PIGEON-SHOOTING. Two close and exciting matches were shot at Dexter Park, yesterday afternoon, in the pres ence of a moderately large number of specta tors. The first was between Bogardos and John Kleinman, for SSO a side. Fifty birds apiece were shot at under the English roles. Bogar dus having twenty-feight yards rise and Klein man twenty-five.. The betting, which was pretty heavy, was entirely in favor of Klein man at the start, as .his opponent missed three out of his first four birds,—an un usual occurrence with him. Ho managed to kill forty-five out of the remaining • forty-seven, however, and won. the match' by three birds, Kleinman missing eight out of lus fifty, Tho second match was a single trap one, fifty birds; twenty-one yards rise, for SSO a side, between Abner Price and John Kleinman. The latter won by a score of 45 to .41. POSTPONED FOE A WEEK. The Connell Judiciary Committee . Discuss chb liiquor Question, and Postpone Action Cor a "WeoK, The Judiciary Committee of the Common Council met yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock for the purpose of considering several ordinances in relation to the sale of liquor on Sunday, otc. Aid. Biehordson, Pickering, ana Schaffner were present. Aid. Cullorton’s ordinance, changing the hour of closing caloons from 11 to 12 o’clock, was first considered. Aid. Schaflner expressed himself strongly in favor of Cullorton’a ordinance, because the 11 o’clock ordinance had proven to he a decided failure. Aid. Biohardson was opposed to it, because the 11 o’clock ordinance bad been passed at the special request of the Mayor. It was dons as an experiment, and, although there was considera ble opposition to It, it had not yet been suf ficiently tried. There was one firm in this city which was stirring up all this fuss. They had taken the matter before the courts. Be was willing the courts should decide the question.; He did not wish to vote against it, but would move to lay the matter over for the present. Aid. Pickering said ho liked Aid. Cullerton’e ordinance beat, although personally he was in .favor of closing saloons as early as possible! Ha would support Aid. Bichardson's motion tolls over, because the ordinance had not been suffi ciently tried. Aid. Schaffner replied that he voted for the 11 o’clock ordinance, because he thought it was in tended for those vile whisky haunts and Italian saloons where young girls were taken and se duced. He thought that it would have been, sufficient if respectable saloons bad been compelled to close their doors, without closing them up entirely; but the ordinance bad Just . the contrary effect. Bespedtable saloons were closed np entirely, while those low hannts were selling all the liquor they pleased in private supper rooms. The ordinance was very oppressive, and should be changed to 12 o’clock. Aid. Pickering admitted that the 11 o’clock ordinance was imperfect, and for that reason preferred Cnliorton’s ordinance. ■ After some farther debate the ordinance was laid over for one week. Aid. McGrath’s ordinance, to allow saloons to open after 1 o’clock p. m. on Sundays, was next discussed. Aid. Pickering expressed himself as being strongly opposed to allowing any intoxicating -drinks to bo sold on Sundays. Aid. Schaffner said that, according to the Con stitution and laws, the Common Council bad no right to prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors on Sunday. There was a State law in existence which fixed a certain penalty for selling liquors on the Sabbath, and now comes the Council and passes the eame law, and fixes a different penal ty. He bad always understood that a man could not he punished twice for the same offense. Aid. Pickering again reiterated his opposition to the ordinance, and moved that it bo lard over. Aid. Schaffner said he was finding fault with just such narrow-minded men as Aid. Pickering, who want everybody to conform to their ideas, - while they would never conform to the ideas of 'Others. . . t ■ , " Aid. Pickering was anxious to know what was Schaffnor’s opinion on politics, and who would bo the next Mayor. - ' Aid. Schaffner replied that he conld not tell, but he knew who would not be. The ordinance then shared the same fate as Aid. Cullcrton’s, and was laid over for one weak. THE JUDICIAL ELECTION. Judge Jameson’s Court-room, at the newQty Hall, was crowded all day yesterday-to its ht-' most capacity by those of the legal fraternity who were anxious to cast their votes for their favorite .candidates for Judges of the Circuit Court. There were two tickets in the field, cne of them containing all the names of the present. Judges. The opposition ticket was, the sane, except that in place of Erastus S. Williams ihe name of Hiram Barber, Jr., was 'eubetitnbd. The friends of both’these gentlemen left no stone unturned to elect their candidate|*and both stood even for a long while, when Judge Will iams’ friends began to scratch every name on the ticket except that of their favorite. : The polls were closed at 3 o’clock, and shortly after i o’clock the vote was announced,) with the fol lowing result: ■ Eroetns S.

Boeenthal 2, Sam Ashton 3, and many others 1 vote each. THE WHISKY POINT MYSTERY. Yesterday Detective Tyrrell again visited the scone of the supposed murder, on the Wlisiy Point rood. Diligent inquiries faded to reveal anything which would aid in the solution of the mystery. The results of an. experiment which Detectiyes Tyrrell and Lacky, made at the County Hospital, yesterday afternoon, go far to support the theory that the unknown mm came to his death by being-, run - .over - by a wagon. The shirts and vest worn by the unfor tunate man, were removed from his body, and hung over a' clothes line.

CHEAP ENOUGH. The JSickey.Lonorgan Contempt Cas< ; This somewhat notorious case, which has been pending since the summer of 1871, came up in the Criminal Court yesterday, and' was finally consigned to oblivion. Abrief resume of thecaso, under the circumstances, maybe allowable. Eli Brown, a notorious cracksman,'etc., was in Chicsr go, in the summer of 1871, when he was wanted in Indiana on a charge of burglary and another charge of counterfeiting. One ot Capt, Hickey’s • officers mot him on the street' and pulled him, locking him up in the Central Station. This energetic action was hastened hy the fact that' Capt. Hickey had got word that an attempt was to be made to rob the American Express Company, of this city, and it was suspected' that Hr. Brown’s presence in this city was in connec tion with said attempt. Mr. 'Felker got the pris oner out of jail on a writ of habeas corpus, ; and brought before Judge Booth, whereupon oneMc- CanfiXaud produced m Court a requisition from the Governor of Indiana upon the Governor of the State of Illinois for the body of Brown. The oosp was progressing slowly, and evidence was lost beginning to be heard, when the Court ad journed for lunch, to recommence at 2 o’clock in' the afternoon. A few moments 'before the re turn of Judge Booth in the Court-room, Brown was removed from the Court by Cant. Hickey and Lonergsn and token to the police headquart ers, wherelie waa handcuffed and placed in a carriage, driven to the Michigan Southern Bail road station, and shipped on the train for Indi ana by Lonerg&u and one Anderson, his as sistant. Upon the opening of the Court, Eli Brown’s counsel asked that a rule be issued upon Capt. Hickey and Lonergon to show cause why •they should not bo attached for contempt. Pro ceedings progressed to a certain point of law, whether the Criminal Court of Cook County had a right to issue a writ of habeas corpus, which was brought before the Supreme Court which decided in favor of tlio Criminal Court. The records of tho case in the Criminal ’ Court were destroyed in the great fire, which caused, more delay, whereupon McCaosland got a certified cony of record In the Supreme Court and bad it reoocketed in the Criminal Court. The case has been continued from time to time and only at tuned a climax yesterday morning, when Judge Booth, took his seat in the criminal Court Bench, Messrs. Hickey and pre cAirr. hicktv’b affedavxt. To the Son , Henry Booth, ex-Ojficio Judge of the Crtm inal Court of Cook County: .. J, Michael C, Hickey, for answer to the alleged con tempt of your Honor in relation to the case of Eli Brown, which was brought before your Honor on a habeas corpus ip the summer of 1871, say that I hod. , no intention whatever to commit any contempt of your Honor as Judge, and that I was advised by an attorney to do what I did, and that I supposed I had a right to do what I did; out I am now satisfied that I commit ted an error, and I regret that I did•' what was done,-. and with this statement I submit myself to your Hon or*# decision, praying and hoping, however, that your Honor will consider that my conduct was an error of the head and not of the heart. At the time of. the transanction State’s Attorney Reed was absent .from the city, so that I could not consult him, and I am sat isfied that, if he had been here, I should not have fallen into the'error aforesaid. M. C. Hiceet. t. ju e. noKcnaax’B xmnxnr. If Thomas A. E, Lancrgan, for answer to the alleged contempt of your Honor in the case of Eli Brown, who was before your Honor on a writ of habeas corpus in the summer of 1871, say that I had no Intention to commit any contempt of your Honor in talcing said Brown to the State of Indiana by virtue of a united States warrant, and that! did what was done supposing J had’a right to do it. I therefore leave the matter with your Honor, to do os your Honor's discretion may suggest. T. A.JE. Bokxsoak. - After reading their affidavits, the Court address ed the defendants in a lengthy and somewhat pathetic speech. He reviewed the case from its inception, and stated that be know the long pen dency of the case had caused- the defendants considerable discomfort und-anxiety, and con sidered that they had been severely punished already. The Court was very serf for what had happened, by which the defendants had placed themselves in their present position. TTheu par ties are brought before a Court for contempt thereof, they should never be allowed, upon con viction, to go unpunished., .As an example to the city and tho public generally, the Court felt it his duty to odd a still further punishment to what had been already Inflicted. The Court re ferred to the high manner In which he had'ever hoard both defendants spoken of, and closed his discourse by announcing that he would fine them SSO each and costs, which amount both defend ants paid, and departed. THE J DiVK.DEALEE’S FMEND. Singular Conduct at a West Side Jos. "tice of the Peace, Mr. Justice Yan’t Wond, yesterday morning, rendered a decision which, without further ex planation on his part, will odd to his fame in the same manner as did his action at the trial of the Tromont House robbers. The facta upon which the decision wae based are briefly these v Borne time since three boys were arrested for stealing braes car-boxes from the cars of the Chicago, Burlington & Qoincy Eailroad. In detective parlance, the boys '* squealed ” after they had been imprisoned- a few days, and told the names-of the junk-dealers who had pur chased the stolon property. These fellows wore arrested, and brought before Justice Scully, who continued their the junk-dealers called upon Justice Scully, and, in a circuitous manner, offered him a large sum of money if he would decide. in their in terest. That incorruptible official - very sharply - informed them that, if bri bery was the object of .their - call, they bad better immediately leave his presence. Tliis they did,’ and, when their cases again came up, they took a change of venue to Justice Van’t Wond, a proceeding, which has become a com mon practice among a certain class of criminals. The cases cams up before Van’t Woud yesterday morning, and were summarily dismissed by him, without hearing any evidence, because the prisoners wore both arrested on one writ. The decision is said to be illegal. It appears

that it is the common practice toarrest, on one writ, any number of persons who are charged with the same offense. Besides, according to Justice Scully's opinion, a Justice of the Peace can'not inquire into the process-by which a party is brought into his court in a criminal case, and~ has only to do with the facts in the case. The’juhk-dcslors, who were liberated by this decision, are known to the anthoritios aa the most extensive dealers of stolon property in the city. As soon as Capt. Lull was informed of-the result of their examination, he: ordered that they ho re-arrested. ■ An officer was sent' in pursuit of them, but at a late hour last evening they bad succeeded in eluding him. SUICIDE. Another Man Gets Tired of Clfe, and Mioots Himself. ■ 'Writing' of suicides has become monotonous badness.. The task Is like that .of writing a column article on the hotse-disease every day for a month. There is nothing new to be said. In troductions to the facts are impossible. Hence we have simply to say that there was another , suicide yesterday. Tho victim was a German, 45 .years of sge, named Fred. Bchroeder, who lived with his family at No. 454 South Union street. At 3 o'clock .yesterday morning he ‘complained -to -his wife that he was . too warm, and , could not sleep. He 'procured a mattress, and deposited it near an open window.' He then took his little girl, 9 years of age, from her bed, and laid her on the', mattress. In a few minutes he lay down beside her. At 6 o’clock Mrs. Bchroeder awoke, and discovered that her hnshand bad left the room. The little girl was awake and crying, and, at her mother’s request, went down stairs to hnntfor her father. She searched the lower portion of the house, without success, and was going into the yard, when she saw that the door of thq coal-house was partly open. Prompted by cariosity, she peered inside, when, to her horror, she saw her father lying on a heap of coal. By his side was a revolver, and blood flowed freely from a bullet-hole in his left temple. The cause of his absence was revealed. Bchroeder was a bricklayer by trade,, hut has been an invalid for some time, and has worked bat little; He manifested signs of insanity abont ' six months ago, and was sent to the Insane Asy lum at Jacksonville.. Be, however, jras pro- nouncod sane, and dismissed. The Coroner’s inquest, yesterday morning, concluded with a verdict or“lt£l6lae while laboring under a fit of insanity.” ~'ThO deecaßod‘ leaves a wife and three Tfrillrtrmr: —■ — ; - To Consumptives.

Coins ot tiro Commune. , It is a curious fact that five-franc pieces bear ing the effigy of the Republic, 1871, areinpw sold for 15 francs at tho Hotel dcs Ventes. Tho value of these coins is owing to their having been struck at the mint under singular circum stances. Csinelinat, who was Director at that establishment under the Commune, was ordered to coin a certain number of'• gold and silver pieces, bearing tho effigy of the Commune. Attempts were made, but were unsuccessful, as the proper workmen were absent or otherwise engaged. Ho had re course to the stamps already existing, making a slight' modification. At the reverse of each stamp were three signs, the letter; A, indicating the spot whore the money was melted, an an chor, which is the mark of tho Comptroller, and a bee, the stamp of the Director. The bee was transformed into a trident. The Coinmnne only struck 4,000 and nearly all were remeltedl so that the coins are verv rare. CITY REAX. ESTATE. F>B SAXE—BY H. F.
