2 and also to plant a large number of trees on each block, all of which will bo thrown on the market as soon as these improvements ore made. This property was purchased last spring for the sum of $462,000. The contemplated improve-* ments will cost several thousand dollars, and will make the property one of the choicest pieces adjacent to Central Park. Charles McAllister, of Philadelphia, who has kept out of the market the large tract of laud situated on Harrison and.Throop streets, Centre avenue, Loomis. Jiafhn, and Twelfth streets, has lately decided to throw this property on the market, and already a large number of lota have been sold to 'bona' fide ‘purchasers, 'rang ing in price 3 from 62,000 to - $2,500 per lot. The most of the purchasers will at once erect brick residencss on their lots. One reason why this property has been kept out of the market so long is the fact that Mr. Mc- Allister would not allow any frame houses to bo erected on the property. In the interest of tho West Side the property owners along Tan Buren street should at once push the opening of Van Buren street, between Hoyne and Leavitt streets, at which point a single block stands in the way of extending the street-car line to Western avenue.

It is about lime a' street-car or a stage, full of people, drove into the river at one of the many bridges crossed by these vehicles* There not been an accident of the kind for ever so long, but if drivers and bridge-tenders are not more careful there Trill be a horrible sensation and a number of bereaved families one of these mornings. Yesterday afternoon the bell on the Clark street bridge rung, and a heavy.omnibuß, fall of 'passengers, many of them ladies, and one of them a drunken man, was* nearly half. way across when the bridge-tan dors* with criminal recklessness, began to turn the bridge, and, although there was plenty .of time' for the Tegicle to drive off the bridge, they 'insisted upon turning it,' and taking the omnibus along. The ladies were al most scared to death, and well they might be, for if they had been at one end of the bridge it might have tipped over and emptied them, the omnibus, hor£CS,harncss, and all, into the deep and muddy river. Or suppose the horses took it into their stupid heads to run away. Fortunate ly nothing of tho kind happened, but it “ might il&vo been,” and then what satisfaction would tbe relatives of tho drowned people got ? Such bridge-lenders arc unlit for their places, whiqh should be supplied by better men. Tho men on the Cl eric street bridge are, in addition to their carelessness,- notoriously lazy, and keep the bridge open writing for a vessel a long way off rather Ilian turn. The Board of Public Works fcioald'uol retain such men in the public ser vice. Washington Heights. The fine, large houses going up, the Military School, Baptist Church, tbe Union Church, the Town Hall, tbe largd graded free school, and the Female College, all under war, give to tlii» charming suburb an air of city life and enterprise, it is claimed, nowhere els© exhibited in any *01116? suburb of Chicago. The most Ceil'venicut depot in tho city, and the' many trains which daily leave for this suburb, with the fine shaded streets and beautiful groves when you get there, make this place, and especially that portion of it known as Morgan Park, a very deferable place for picnics.

Unexpected Result of Hitting From the Shoulder. A Three-Cornered Contest on State Street. One of the Parties Badly Cut with a Knife. The - Story of a Jealous Irish Woman. SKULL-SMASHING. A FAT*AL FIST-FIGHT. On Friday evening a fight occurred on Archer avenue, between two respectable men, which ended in tho death of one of them at 5 o’clock yesterday morning. The encounter was nothing more than an ordinary fist-fight, and originated in a dispute about the ownership of a , twenty five cent rule. From the circumstances of the fight, it is very probable that both parties would have, been satisfied if tho results of it had been nothing . more serious than four bunged up eyes ‘or two swollen faces. .There is‘little doubt that neither of them intended to kllL They used no deadly weapons. They both very likely esteemed a human life as being of far more value than a world full of twelve-inch rules. But what were their intentions when they began tho encounter ,is only important in fixing the degree of punish ment which shall bo indicted upon the unfor tunate man who struck the fatal blow, whose unhappy condition is hardly less enviable than that of his lifeless victim. The evidence given below, and which was de veloped at tho Coroner’s inquest yesterday af ternoon, makes a brief statement of the facts at tending the deplorable combat, all that is neces sary. THE FACTS. It appears that, on Thursday evening, a man named John J. Gardner, a sign-hanger, went into tho hardware store of W. H. Sidehotbam, at No. 33 Archer .avenue, to purchase a piece of stove-pipe. While thcro 'he laid an ordinary carpenter’s rule on tho counter, and* according to his statement, forgot to pick it up. On Friday evening ho wont back after it, and, seeing a rule lying on the counter, which he supposed to bo his, ho put it into his pocket and walked back home. When Mr. Sideboiham found that Gardner had taken the rule, he sent word to him to either return it or come down and see him. Gardner returned to the store. They disputed about tho identity of tho rule, and finally called one another liars. This brought on blows. They fought but a few minutes. After the combat, neither of them seemed to be seriously injured. Jilr. Bide botham kept his store open until tho usual time for closing, and then wont up-stairs. Ho complained of a severe pain in his head, and, after a night of severe died at 5 o’clock yesterday morning, from compression of the brain, produced by a fracture of tno skull. TEE VEHDICT. Tho Coroner’s jury rendered tho following verdict, after a deliberation of some length : “ That the said William H. Sidobotham, now lying dead at No. 33 Archer avenue, in tho City of Chicago, came to his death Juno 21, 1873, from compression of the brain, produced by the rupturing of tho middle minlngal artery, which was caused by a fracture of the skull; and, from the evidence, we find that tho said fracture was caused by a blow from the fist of John J. Gardner.” Bidcbotham was an and leaves a wife and one child. He has been m this country . for some time, was 33 years old, and much es teemed by his neighbors. - Gardner, the unfor tunate prisoner, is a sign-hanger, and is a large, powerful man. He is an orderly person, and not at all brutal in his appearance. He has a wife and two children. Ho is greatly grieved at the fatal result of the encounter. He was ar rested yesterday morning, and last evening was lodged in the County Jail. Tho following is the evidence elicited at tho Coroner's inquosv: JOSEPH BABTH I reside at No. 33 Archer avenue. lam 18 years of age. On Thursday night last a man by the name of Gardner came into tho store of Jlr. Sidebotham, at No. 33 - Archer avenue. I work there. It was about 8 o’clock when Gardner come in. Ho aakod for some stove-pipe. Mr. Sidebotham told mo to cut a joint In two. Gard ner paid for the stove-pipe and went out. Yes terday, evening (Friday) he came again about G o’clock. I waa in tho store. Mr. Side bothazn was not in; his wife was. Gardner asked for his rule, saying .ho had left it there, tho night before. I was weighing some nails ~at tho time, and I asked Mrs. Gardner to wait on him, and I would look for the rule.. A rale was laying behind the counter. It was a new one. Gardner said “this is my rule/’and picked it up and went away with it. when Mr. Sidebotham camo home, which waa about five minutes after, hia wifo told him ' about Mr. Gardner taking tho rule, .. Ho- said for • mo to go to Gard ner’s house on Butterfield street, near Nine teenth, and get the rule, or ask Gardner to come down to the store. Gardner camo down -with mo. Sidebotham said to Gardner, “It is nice to steal a .man’s rule.” Gardner said, “That is my rule.” Sidebotham said, “Tour rule is an old one, and I did not see any figures on it.” Gardner said, “ I left my rule lying back of the counter.” Sidebotham said, “ 1 see you put your rule in your hip pocket.” Gardner said, ** You are a d—d liar.” Sidebotham had a little child in. his arms, and ho gave it to his wife. The two men then began to fight. At last Gardner struck Side botbam, and ho fell on his knees. I walked up to Gardner and said, “It is enough now.”' Gardner struck mo on tho nose, causing it to bleed. Gardner then walked away, and Sidebotham went into the store. About fifteen minutes after 9 o’clock, closed the store.. Ho. looked pale in the fabe. ’I saw Gardner strike Sidebotham twice, once on the forehead and ouco on tho left side of- the Load. Gardner did not strike or ho was down. Deceased did hot strike his head on tho flour or anything else, Did not complain of his head. Did not see anything in Gardner’s hand. There were no blows struck in the store. The fight was on the sidewalk. Before tho fight Gardner gave up the rule. I did not see any rule in tho store belonging to him. If one had been left there I would have found it, as I sweep out and fix up the store every evening. I did not see any there last Thursday evening. HANNAH SIDKBOTHAiI, Xam the wifo of tho deceased. [With tho ex ception of tho following, the woman’s testimony was the same as that given by tho clerk in the store:] When Gardner came in, my husband asked him why ho did not wait until ho was in the store. _ My husband said “could you not see that this is a now rule, and your’s was dirtv, and I saw you put it into your pocket?” Gardner said 44 1 can swear! left it on your counter.” My husband said, “If you swear to that, you will swear to a lie.” Gardner said if mv hus band said that, “ho was a d—d liar,” 'Gard ner then repeated it, as ho went out on the side walk. My husband then handed me the child and followed him. I tried to pull my husband back. Ho jerked away, and I ran back into the house. About half-past nine o’clock my husband closed up tho store. When he came up-stairs, ho said ho was cold, and asked for a quilt, and then for a drink. He said his head pained him veiy much, and said he thought his skull was fractured. He arid tho man had struck bin> on tho forehead. I sent for Dr, McWill iams, but when he came my husband was insen blo. He said the man had struck him on the head, hut did not say what with. About half an hour 4 After the fuss, the same man passed the store again, and said to my husband, “PU have satisfaction yet.” My husband saii “ You can have it.” [Witness here identified the prisoner as the man who went by the house*] My husband was sitting in THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, JUNE 22. 1873. front of the store at the time, but did, not get vp from his chair. MICHAEL KTBCH. Tam a police officer. I was standing at the comer of Archer .avenue and Twentieth street on Friday evening. I saw same people on the sidewalk in front of No. 33 Archer avenne. I saw Mr. Sidebothara sitting on the stoop in front of Ins store, and saw Mr. Clardner, the prisoner, strike him on the forehead. I wont to the place, but the people said it was only a little fuss. Gardner then went away before I came up, and the deceased walked into the store. I therefore paid no more attention to them. dr. emmons, lam County Physician. I held a post-mortem examination on tho body of W. 11. Bidcbotham, at No. S3 Archer avenue. Upon examining the body there was found a bruise on the forehead. The other portion of tho body was in a normal ■condition. X found the right side of the-head, under the scalp, considerably ochymosod, and tho skull fractured and de p reaped for tho space of an inch, making a semi-circle shaped fracture. Just in front, and on a lino with tho upper margin of the right ear, there were about four ounces of blood, forming a clot between tho membrane and skull: also a small quantity of blood under tho membrane of the brain. Tho* other organs of tho body wore in a healthy condition. The man came to his death from compression of tho brain produced by hemorrhage. Tho injuries to the head were tho cause of tho hemorrhage. X believe the injury was made by a boot-heel, or a hammer. A blow from tho fiat might make it, but the man inflicting it must be a very powerful man. Tho skull in the region of the injury is thin. The man’s skull was very thin. A FAMILY ROW. A BOUGH FIGHT BETWEEN CO-TENANTS. Mr. George T, Dalton is proprietor of a tea store at No. 550 State street, and Mr. leer keeps & tailor shop at 550>£. They are close neigh bors, but in their case proximity was not the soul of love and friendship, but rather tho cause of discord, which culminated yesterday after noon in a pitched battlol They had been at cross purposes before, and both parties woro under bonds to keep the peace. It seems that tho Isors are a quarelsome set, and must have something in the nature of a grievance always under consideration. The in nocent cause of their last grievance was a useful hydrant, which stood in tho rear of the two buildings nearly on the dividing lino, with a leaning, if it had any leaning, toward the Dalton domain. were in the habit of frequenting this hydrant to draw water for domestic and other uses, but the meetings woro not happy, because tho parties, on one side at least, were unamiablo and inclined to quarrel. The leer water “roiling rapidly,” like an historic river of the same name, was very well for the leers, but they were greedy, and did not wish to permit the Daltons to partake of that useful liquid.. They put up a fence between tho two yards, EXCLUDING THE DALTONS from tho hydrant. Mr. Dalton remonstrated. Ho would be satisfied if there were two holes in the fence, cue to get at tho spout, and the other at tho spigot of tho hydrant. The leers would concede neither spout nor spigot. Dalton appealed to Mr. Gamble, the agent of the landlord, and Mr. Gam ble decided that tho fence should not be per mitted to bar Mr. Dalton’s way to tho hydrant, because he conceived Mr. Dalton had as much right aud title to the hydrant as the Iscrs. TEBXEKUAY AFTEBNOOX. when tho sun was declining in the west, Mr. Dalton took a sprinkler and went to the yard to got some water with which to allay the dust in front of his establishment. The fence was there. It was 6 feet high, and the hydrant at the other side. To get at the hydrant Mr. Dalton would have bad to climb the fence, but ho was not good at climbing fences, so be decided to go through it. Ho went through it by tho aid of his boots. In short, EE KICKED IT DOW*. On the other side stood, the Isors in battle’s “ magnificently stern array,” prepared to dis pute his way to tho hydrant. Dalton was rein forced by his wife, who. hearing the rumpus, came to succor him. While he wag occupied in reducing the fence to small bits, his wife took tho sprinkler and proceeded to fill it, tho Isers in tho mean time making hostile demonstrations, directing their movements to Mrs. Dalton, who stood it all, and then boro off tho full sprinkler in tri umph to the store. Her husband retreated with her, the enemy following, armed, as Mr. Dalton says, respectively with a poker, a dub. and a broomstick. THE MELEE BECAME OEXERAL. Mr. Daltou asked an employe of Iscr, named Gnatav Lauer, why ho struck hia (Dalton’s) wife. Laucr ejected an opprobrious epithet, which aggravated Dalton, and either he struck Lauer first or Lauor struck him first, which ho does not know, but first or last Saner struck him, and that was all he knew, as ho dropped to the ground insensible. Parties interfered, and tho row ended. Soon after Officer Mahbney camo along and arrested Sauer, Iser and his wifo clearing out and escaping arrest up to a lato hour last night. DB. PAYNE WAS CALLED to attend Mr. Dalton. He found an incised wound on tho left sido of tho head, three inches long, extending down to the skull. He did not believe tho skull was fractured, hut there was danger of serious results. Tho wound was stitched and dressed, and the patient was as comfortable as conld be expected. Tho wound is believed to have been made by a knife in the hand of Sauer. THE POLICE give the leers a certificate of being troublesome people, with whom thevhavo had business trans actions of an official nature more than once, and the beat opinion seems to be that they wore •primarily in the wrong, and tho provokers’ of the mischief. THE WHISKY POINT MURDER. SINCE TflE CORONKB’S INQUEST developed the startling fact that the unknown man who was found on "West Chicago avenue, at the intersection of that thoroughfare with Whis ky Point read, it would seem aa if the detectives had ceased to make any effort to ferret out the perpetrators of the crime or discover the identity of their victim. Doubtless public curiosity has been on the tip-toe to know .what facta were being brought out, but it will quickly go down flat-footed when it is informed that tho mystery has long since been given up by the detectives as too dark for their ingenuity to penetrate. Any one who has asso ciated with detectives in their work cannot but have observed that, without an exception, they all shirk work connected with tho solution of a murder. It is difficult to understand tho reason of this. It’may bo because such cases seldom promise anything except .the honor of clearing up a horrible mystery. 11l ere are no golden baits to catch'at. This may be tho reason why tho Whisky Point murder was so quickly aban doned. But it is thought by some that . A CLUE TO THE MURDER has been fouud without tho aid of tho dotcc tivos. In the account of tho discovery of tho •unknown victim, which appeared in The Trib une, a negro named Andy Hewson was referred to as a probable accomplice in tho crime. On Friday afternoon, this man’s wife, who is a white'woman, appeared at tho Chicago Avenud Police ' Station, and, according to Scrgt. Bris coe’s story, hinted that she know something about the tragedy. She was much intoxicated, but was able to say that a woman named Cronan, who had been living at her house, for somo weeks had, at various times, made re marks about a German, who, she would say, was dead, and that it was agoou thing it was never . found out, and the like. She also stated that Hewson had become so fond of Mrs. Cronan, who is also a white woman, that he had driven hia wife out of her legitimate homo. SERGEANT BRISCOE, desirous of solving tho mystery, was very im pressible. aud, procuring a horse and buggy, went to Hcwson’s house and arrested Hewson and the woman Cronan. These persons, with Mrs. Hewson, were lodged yesterday morning at the Madison Street Station. A Tribune re porter visited them daring tho afternoon. They were all VEP.Y COMMUNICATIVE. Tho nogro, Henson, is quite intelligent, * and has not a bad countenance. Ho told a very straight etory, and denied very positively all knowledge of tho mysterious affair. Ho said, that about two weeks ago, a white n?n.n named Clifford, who had been staying at his house, at irregular intervals, began to grow very intimate with his wife. Ho became enraged, and drove him out of tho house, saying that he would kill him if he ever returned. Ho says he has not seen him since. The description he gave of him, was almost Identical with that of the mur dered man. This was the only , SUSPICIOUS STATEMENT made. Upon questioning tho woman Cronan, she denied most positively that she knew any- thing of “the. tnysteiijiis murder. Sirs. Hewson Bald ehe didjoot refer, to Mrp> Cronan as making, the statements about' the Gorman, but to one; Harr Monroe, who is in the Bridewell, whf'Baw the body of 'the "urilmownman, and thought It." was that of a'Germaii who lived at the corner of Reuben and Kinzie streets. sms. HEWSEN SAID oho wont to the police atatioa- to get a warrant for tho arrest of Mrs. Cronon., with whom - ahe Had been fighting. sho;eaid she was very drunk ' when there, and docs not remember -what sho said."" It is probable that’ these persona know nothing about the affair, as tho utmost ingeniilty'in questioning them failed to make them contradict themselves,, or to elicit any important information. WALL 1 STREET. Review of tho money. Slock, Bond, Gold, and Produce Marketi* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, Juno 21.—The markets were very dull to-day, and not more than one-quarter the usual number of members was present, the re mainder having taken advantage of Saturday to Blip off into the country. - Honey was in abun dant supply, and call loans ranged from 5 to 8 percent. The bank statement was favorable, and the banks have now a heavy reserve both of gold and legal-tenders to provide for any con tingencies. Towards tho last of next week the banks will begin to accumulate funds to moot tho payment of July dividends. STOCKS were quiet throughout the greater part .of the day, but firm in tone, with an advance in prices, ranging from '}£ to I% per cent. The 'greatest improvement and largest dealings were in Union Pacific/ with Lake Shore next in prominence. The market closed dull and weak at a reaction of H t° % pe? cent from tho best prices made. Tho strength early in the day. was generally attrib uted to the covering of short contracts. Tho decline for the week offered handsome profits to the Bears in some cases. The Canton Directors have authorized an issue of $5,000,000 of 6 per cent gold bonds, secured by sales of lauds. The bonds will probably be negotiated in London by Mr. Duncan, who sails in tho Russia. About one-quarter, of tho funds will bo used to pay a cash dividend, and thus reimburse the stockholders for money expended on the prop erty. A part of the remainder may be used to buy Western Maryland Railroad, on which con siderable amounts have been expended by the City of Baltimore, and which can be bought for $300,000, provided it will bo extended west of Hagerstown. Tho Pacific Mail Directors have taken no action yet In regard to the proposed loan. GOLD this firmer in the morning and lower in the afternoon, with all the business at 115.% to 115%. The export of bullion to-day amounts to about $391,000 in silver bars, and not more than $25,000 gold has been sent out this week. THE IMPOSTS for the week amount to $5,790,952, of which $870,305 were dry goods, $4,920,617 merchan dise. This is the lightest amount of imports for a long time, and smaller than on any week this year. EXCHANGE. Foreign exchanges were firm. Good sight bills are still selling at 110.

Canby—TiieApproacUingTrial* and Almost Certain Punishment of the Utlodocs and the Lynching Orego nians* New York, June 21.—A. B. Mcacham, Chair man of the Peace Commission to treat with tho Modocs, and who narrowly escaped the fate of his associates, Gen. Canby and Dr. Thomas, is in this city, on his way to Fort Klamath, where the Military Commission for tho trial of the captured members of the band will sit. Mr. Meacbam can make no use of his right hand, the nerves of which were paralyzed by a ball through the wrist. The forefinger of his left hand is? twice its natural size. There still remains a slight scar on his forehead, from a ball, and from some cause a lump is on tho right side of bis head. Other wounds, received on his ear, ‘ inside, and else where, have entirelly healed. His story of tho treachery which resulted in tho d&ath of Gen. Canby and Capt. Thomas is but a reiteration of that already told. Mr. Meacbam says that him self and tho other Commissioners had full in formation of the fate in store for them, but as Messrs. Canby and Thomas would not accept the warning, he could not remain behind while they wont into danger. It was Capt. Jack who gave the signal for the slaughter and shot Gen. Canby, while Old Schonchin attended to him self with a pistol and. knife. Of tho issue of the forthcoming trial ho expresses no doubt that tho/Modocs who participated in *tho assassination .will be convicted and executed. Tho o'Ject of virtual acquittal or par don after conviction would be disastrous, for, with such a result before their oyes, tho turbu lence of other tribes could not be restrained, while tho men who massacred the Modoc prison ers should bo hanged, Mr. Meacbam thinks, on the same gallows with the Indian murderers. During the war the Modocs killed aud wounded about three soldiers for every warrior in their force, at no time numbering more than sixty five, and that during tho first three days’ fight this band not only held out against 800 troops, armed with every appliance of modem warfare, but kept a passage open for retreat, which even tho Warm Spring scouts -could -not close. Mr. Meacbam- advises that those who are- not guilty -of - participation —in the massacre be removed to their reservation. To' distribute them among other tribes would bo punishment to some only. Him ides of the best policy for tho future is that all tribal lines bo abolished, that the Indians bo made amenable to the laws, and be placed on tho same footing with other members of the com munity. Tragedy in Nebraska. Ohaiia, June 21. —0n Thursday night two men, one white and the other colored, entered the house of Mr. D.

T.TITF. aiAfIXEB, T.nrp IIAV While tho President and many of the members of the Cabinet are absent from their duties, it might be expected the heads of bureaus and clerks are disposed to embrace the opportunity to do as little work as possible. To such an extent has the example of the Chief been copied by the subordinates, that the Secretary of War has found it necessary to issue an order notifying the clerks in the vari ous bureaus of the War Department that here after any clerk not promptly at his desk at 9 a. m. will be considered as having tendered his resignation.

Statements having recently been made that valuable papers relating to the sourts-mar tial, army frauds, etc., had been abstracted from the War Department, a special inquiry was made to-day at tho Adjutant General’s Office and Bu reau of Military Justice, as to the truth of the reports. Tho reply was that tho only informa tion on the subject which had reached the officer in charge was through the newspapers. Tho system of dealing with all papers received, and their preservation, was explained, showing that there could be no theft of any particular documents, without con nivance of tho clerks and watchmen, whose char acter for trustworthiness is unquestioned. It was also ascertained that similar statements of loss or abstraction have heretofore been circu lated by persons who have applied for, but have been refused, particular documents, to be used for private purposes. The Government, being tho custodian of the archives, has made use of them only in furtherance of public interests. The Secretary of War, however, has taken steps to ascertain exactly how much truth, if any, there is in the rumors, and at the proper time the result will bo made known. THE CHIEF JUSTICESHIP.

It opened with the overture to “ William Tell ” by the united Milwaukee . and * Dubuque bands' and was well received. “ Germania,” a grand chorus with orchestra, and “ To Our Country,” were performed in a most excellent manner. The male chorus of theMUwaukoe Maennorchor, under the leadership of Otto Yon Gumpert, achieved the triumph of the evening in their rendering of the “ Prayer Before the Battle.” Mr. E. Schultzo, of Chicago, sang the tenor solo “Bare Beauty,which was heartily applauded. A duet for alto and so- Srano, “ Holy Mother t Hear My Prayer,” from [aritaua, sung by Misses Bariy and XiOewen tritt, of Milwaukee, called forth unbounded ap plause. A violin duet by Bach, Senior and Junior, of Milwaukee, with orchestral accompaniment, was beautifully executed, but owing to the immense size of the hall was scarcely audible at the farthest parts. The Lieder Kranz Society of LaCrosao sang in a splendid manner “The Bard.” Miss Barry, of Milwaukee, a beautiful soprano, was twice called out, as were also Miss Loewentrifct, and Otto Knelm, of Milwaukee.
