WHISKY. TOJ WADSWORTH CASE. Upon the opening of the United Stales Court yes terday, after the transaction of some minor busi ness, the case of Phil Wadsworth was called. Mr. Storrs—lf the Court please, la tho case of the United States against Philip Wadsworth, I re ceived notice from Judge Bongs yesterday for the first time that it was his Intention to cull up the cose of Mr. Wadsworth next, it having been originally his intention to call up the ciwhj of Mr. Ward. Last Friday. In a conference with Judge Bangs, ho said to mo that such proceedings had ncen taken with reference to the submission of the question ns to the trial of this case to the au thorities at Washington that ho deemed it mi necessary for mu to go uny further at the present time la the work of preparation. I understand he has communicated with the Department, and bus vet received no answer. That he lias received no answer Is not ut all sur prising, and doubtless in tho course which affairs take there he will receive Informa tion la a day or two, and I therefore suggest that the case stand over until Monday morning, which, j think, will meet the approval uf the Government counsel, and probably no time will be lost In mak ing that present disposition of it. Thera is a fair chance, to suy the least, as I understand it, that the cose will not be tried at all. Judge Bungs—if the Court please, It Is quite de sirable that Mr. Dexter shall be In these trials o ’ rWurd and Wadswnrlli, if they are tried. lam toh. that the condition of his son Is such that he prulw bly will be able to give his attention to these cases If they should be continued until Monday, For that reason especially, 1 should be glad If the Court will allow the postponement, i Tho Court—lf Uiu case goes over at all, It goes over until Tuesday. I have so engagement for Monday that 1 cannot defer. Ur. Bangs—Moreover, we have received no ad vices at all from the Department, but probably shall within a day or two, and perhaps to-day. Mr. Btorrs—li would be unconstitutional for them to telegraph. They cannot do anything short of writing. (Merriment In tho Court, sup pressed with dlincully by the Judge. J The panel was then called, ten Jurors answering, and a number were excused. The Court—Then, Mr. Bangs, in view of the statement which you have made, and fur want of advices or Instructions from the Department, and the necessity of having Mr. Dexter present at the trial, 1 suppose that the Court has no alternative, perhaps, than to let the trials of these (wo cases go over until Tuesday. It would bo Monday except lor an engagement of iny own, which 1 think uf euch a nature that 1 have a right to take one day. Judge Bangs—Since this question came up. I have received a letter from the Department which may need some consideration. Possibly tills mat ter might U held lo abeyance until 2 o’clock this afternoon. The Court—lf these cases are not to be tried, •nd if you have nothing vise to do, 1 would like to have them disposed of at once. Mr. Ayar—llls desirable, your Honor, to clean up this ducket. The Coart—This Is aimply the question of post poning these caseef Mr. Ayer—Yce. sir. Judge Bang*—That la the way I understand It. The Court—Have you any cases to try this morn- Bangs—We bare the case of the United lutes vs. Hildreth. Mr. titorrs— Do we nndentand that the Wads- •forth case goes over until Tuesday, Judge Bangs Judge Bangs—Yes, sir. The Court—ln Wadsworth and Ward’s casco, both go over until Tuesday, sa 1 understand it. Mr. Ayer—l would suggest that we have a cal) 01 Ibe revenue coses. There are several coses li which 1 suppose the defendants will plead guilty, Tbe Court thea culled the ducket. which came la daring the discussion le, it Is under stood, a reply to ouc written to thu Treasury In £srtmeut asking whether under the circumstances iWMttlvUablutngouuvltU the Wadsworth und Wanl>.

The Village Trustees met at the village offices Tuesday evening, a full Board being present Several petitions were received and appropriately referred. Tho Sewerage Committee, to whom was referred the bill of M. McNlcbols for extras on the Davis street sewer, for $1,183, reported U correct and recommended Its payment when tho necessary funds ore collected. Tho same Committee was authorized to take action on the petition of Mr. T. C. Hoag, asking that tin* catch-nasjn bo pul In at the southwest Instead of tho southeast corner of Davis street and Chicago avenue. . . . The report of the Chief Engineer of tho Water works for April was read and placed on file. Tho running expenses for tho month, Including sala ries, were $3Ol. <M. Dr. Davis presented a petition of property-own ers asking permission to build aseworon Judson avenue and Church street at their own expense. Referred to tho Sewerage Committee and Village Attorney. „ „ Mr. Gape. Chairman of the Sewerage Commit tee. which was Instructed to ascertain the probable cost of the Maple avenue sewer, reported that the builders estimated the cost at $2. AO per running foot, which seemed too much. After some discus sion, the Committee was Instructed to ascertain definitely tho views of tho property-owners who first petitioned fora sewer, and then tor the re urn I of the ordinance, the Hoard being unwilling to repeal the ordinance without further information, and until the petitioners pay the expenses already J. 11. Kedzle and H. B. Hurd presented a petition requesting the Board to omit the Items ofSIA.OOO for floating Indebtedness and $.>,300 for sinking fund from the tax-levy for tho year. In view of the present financial depression, and In the hope that the tax-payers will find It easier to par these amount* next year. .... , By request of the Hoard, Mr. Kedzle expressed his views upon the subject, which was also dis cussed by President Huso and Dr. Davis. The lat ter expressed himself very decidedly In opposition to the proposition, preferring that each year a ap propriation should cover all the expenses of that year, amt that none should be Incurred until tbe taxes levied were collected to pay them. He was decidedly opposed to borrowing,* putting off, and ' * shinning around ” to renew, piling up Inter est on principal. .... President Huso wonted It definitely understood that ho did not wish the credit of tho village com promised In any way, bnt favored the postpone ment of the payment of this fioatlng Indebtedness, If possible. In order to lighten tho taxes of tho poorer citizens during tho present hard times. After a protracted debate. Dr. Davis moved a re consideration of tho ordinance making the annual tax levy. This caused a renown! of tho debate. Finally, a vote was taken, with the following ro suil: , _ . Ytaa— Davis, Gage, Connor, ana Huso—i. jYowi— lplehurt and Dewey— 2. This done, It was decided to leave tho matter of the amount to be deducted from tho levy until next week, the mineral fooling seeming to be In favor of reducing tho levy by SIO,OOO, which will probably be done. A dUcnsslon of some length ensued on the much mooted park-fcuco question. An ordinance regu lating the matter wus finally adopted, which those property-owners on the Rluge who have pre-empt ed the sidewalk and most of the road will do w ell to rend. Adjourned till Tuesday evening. MISS EARLY. marriage of This Calumniated Lady at Hock ford Yesterday. Special Diepatch to The 7W6uns. Rocnronu, 111., May 01.—Miss Alice A.

MOODY. 818 SERMON AT LAKE VOKE3T LAST NIQRT. Special liiepalch lo 77.* mount. Lakb Foiibst, ill., May 81.—Mr. Moody emerged from Ida seclusion to-night, ruddy and in perfect health. The rustication has done him good. Every gesture leatllles to recuperated functions and perfect nervous exaltation. During hU visit hero he has sedulously avoided social contact, except with immediate friends. Open-air exercises and perfect quiet have been his chief amusements, and he appeared to-night before from I,(XX) to 1,300 people reinvigorated und well prepared for work. The ser vices were held In the Presbyterian Church, that ordinarily scats a congre gation of 000. To-night it was Jammed from the pulpit to the vestibule. The aisles were tilled with chairs, und back of the scuts the standing-room was thronged. LAKB VOHBST Is a town of country houses, a fashionable reel dcncc-retrcat for the wealthier few who do business In town and seek fresh air for the night aud morning—a brilliant imputation surrottmled by every luxury and all that taste can suggest, and so the congregation was a brilliant one, and woulu have done more than honor to the most fashionable of Chicago’s churches. BJLNKBY'S UICKXB33 prevented his Attendance, und U. Thano Miller, the celebrated Cincinnati singer, took bis place. Tbo exercises were opened by Mr. Sabin, who led luthohymn, “Come, thou fount of every bless- In-, 1 * Tbs Xluv. Hi. McCotkie, pwtar of the clmrctv, followed in prayer, and, after another hymn, Sir. Stonily waslntrodnerd. Mlt. MOODY AND Ills SKUMON. Tall, well-made, full beard and mustache, a bunch of batteries, all magnetism—that folly describes him. Ills text was *• Grace," taken from the whole Bible, and Illustrated by n score of passages taken nt random through the discourse, ills theme was the freedom of the gift of grace, a word of which not one man or woman in s million knows the definition, but which Isa grant by (he Almighty to the most unworthy. If the mennlngof the term were understood, not a human being would go out Into tho world uncon verted. It Is useless to talk of unworlhlness. The more unworthy, the better entitled to grace, This was the score of the sermon. TIIR ILLUSTRATIONS llin 11.1i11.1111A11U.-n were sparkling. From tho opening, the Interest was enlisted. Qualm, odd. original expressions (lowed from bis lips. Speaking of Christ, his tone and manner were those of men relating good an ecdotes of boon companions for whose deeds they entertain the highest respect. In working up to a point his method Is that of the playwright The oblect develops slowly until the climax Is reached and the audience is thrilled with the consciousness of the application. •• You have fought (lod,* said he—“fought Him well. Lei your hearts 101 lme who ha* won." TUB AUDIENCE were still as death till the question came, and then came tho murmur of voices and the singing of con viction. In his accent he Is decidedly Yankee; In his gesture he is graceful ns an Indian, ms voice Is sometimes round ns the thunder, mid sometimes ns (lend and numb as a fading echo. 11c traced gmeo to the heart of Gad through the desert of humanity. Tho Father had Bcutlhc Son to earth to teach the way and the life, and be cause Be was trampled upon, the stream of grace was sent hi bolder hoods than had streamed down before. STATING TO PItAT.

Darned to Death. LouirrUle Qmrler*Jttnmat, Jf(*V 2fl. Wo are called upon U»U morning to chronicle an other of those dreadful and terrible accidents which send a thrill of terror through entire com munities. Three miles cast of Henry vllle, In Clark County, Ind., Just across the river, there stood Friday an old two-story log hut, and It was occu pied by Mr. Amos St. Clair, his wife, and six chil dren. Two of the children. Clara, aged 11 years, and Stanley, aged 5 years, slept in a room up stairs, Im mediately over tho kitchen; tho other members of the family occupying the rooms down stairs. Fr day afternoon Mr. HI. Clair was culled to Otlsc neighboring town, on business, slating to his w that he would not return perhaps until after bed time. At the usual hour of retiring, about » o’clock, Mrs. St. Clair uud her children wont to bed, and were soon sound asleep. While the fam ily were sleeping, unconscious of tho terrible dis aster which was impending, tho house caught Pro In thu kitchen from a defective Hue. It burned perhaps slowly nt first, but there wua Just breeze enough to fan the Haines, and it was not long before tho kitchen und tho steps leading from tho kitchen up-stairs in thu bedroom where slept the two young children were wrapped In Humes. About this time Mrs. St. Clair was awakened by the heal und crackling of tho tire. The frightened woman managed to have discretion enough under the fear ful circumstances to arouse thu children in thu room with tier, and bade them tly from (ho house. She then thought of her darling sun and daughter up-stulrs, and started to their rescue. The lire la the meantime had gained such headway, and had been so destructive, Dint tho steps leading to the up-stairs room were burned ncarty away while tho agonized woman was standing terror-stricken, being powerless to save her bunting children. At this lime a wild, piercing scream sounded out through the (Ire and smoka. The half-crazed mother could bear no mure, and she rushed into tho fire with a desperate hope of saving her children from their terrible fate. About this time Mr.Prall, the nearest neighbor, arrived, and only in time to drag Mrs. HU Clair away from the burning building, but not before the pour woman was distressingly burned. Her injuries will doubtless prove fatal. A moment after Mrs. St. Clair was taken from the building tho accuud story gave way, falling through to the ground Hour, pre cipitating the children Into a burning mass, where they sutlerud immolation. A second before the Uuor gave way the shriek# of tho burning children w ere heard so agonizing and heartrending that they chilled the blood of the bearers. Thu house burn ed to the ground, und all the furniture and clothing belonging to the 111-fnted family were consumed, except a sewing-machine und few bedclothes. When tins debris waa cleared away yesterday noon the charred and blackened remains of thu little girl were found. Nothing was left of thu little boy but a few bones, bla body being burned tu ashes.

Tho present leading representative of flsb.cnUnre In this section of the country Is Dr. W. A. Pratt, of Elgin, who Is the possessor of ono of the finest stock farms In the State, and which covers 700 acres of land. On this farm there are ponds containing trout, salmon, and bass, and covering 40 acres of ground. The land Is situated on tho Freeport branch of the North western Hallway, 2 miles west of Elgin, and is of the most romantic kind. It was hero that tbs dele gates to tho Fish Convention assembled to-day, and partook of the bounteous hospitality of Dr. Pratt and bis mother and Bister.

TUB PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS. COLT. The President read the following address, and on motion It was ordered printed with thu minutes and records of previous meetings, la pamphlet To the Member* of the IlUnola Slate Ffth Cultur • I*(i’ Aunclullnn : , ' ‘ It has licon llio cnntom, nml lino been expected by associations of this kind, that the President ■Mould furnish an address at their regular annual meeting, giving flomu of the advantages gained during the pant year, and the success of the Asso ciation. Then, again. It has bean the custom of some Associations fur the PrcaldeuL'to have an ex* enso for not giving an address for such occasion, fur want of time, or something cjso. The want of time would probably be tho best excuse for mo, but on this occasion I have made a few notes from my memorandum book of what was doing and what bad been done since our last meeting. * ‘ One of the most essential tilings to this Asso ciation is the fish and spawn distribution in this State. Through the assistance of Qnv. Beveridge, and the kindness of Prof, lialrd, United Stales Pish Commissioner, 3117,000 of fish and spawn have been distributed through this State to clubs and associations, and turned out into tho rivers and lakes, and had fishing clubs made appli cation, we could have hod many more. Or, if I had had the capacity for hatching that I shall have this year, I should have turned out many more. When my hatching-house Is complete, 1 shall haro capacity for hatching THREE MILLION OF PISH AT ONCE, but, as you all know, there was no appropriation made, and (ho spawn secured from tho General Government must have the express and packing paid by the State receiving them. This, however, is only about one-fifth the value of tho spawn, and what Las been done Is by fishing clubs and associa tions. Many having paid mu for hatching their fish, while some have built hatching-houses for themselves and batched their own spawn. I can say nothing mare fur Illinois than that it is a shame that this is tho only State of twenty-two of tho most Northern States which has not made an appropria tion for tho stocking of tho public waters, or pass ed laws for the protection of fish, while hut fow of these States have better waters than Illinois, And bad it not boon for this Association and the few fishing clubs that have taken this matter In hand, wo should not havo had tho fish that have been turned ont the past year, and wo have them now ONLT THUOUaii THE ASSISTANCE OF OOV. DEV- This Is, however, ono step gained by oar Associa tion, and wo can hone fur nothing more tho coming year than what will bo done by this Association and by fishing clubs, os all or nearly all tho spawn furnished by the General Government is distrib uted before any Legislature meets, and clubs and. associations wanting fish or spawn of the Califor nia salmon to bo put into uny lake where clubs have fishing grounds, should make application to mo before the Ist of August, so that 1 can make up an estimate of tho amount of spawn we will be prepared to take and report tho same to Prof, liairdnt Washington. Fish culture la no longer an experiment, but has proven a success with every State that has been lung enough engaged in it to get returns from tbelr oifortf, and, in many cases, hasmoro than met the must sanguine ex pectations. The river on which the General Goverment se cure and batch the shad spawn, the fishermen do nil they can to drive away the Commissioners, their reason being that the fish arc so Increased by this artificial propagation that they can get no price for their fish when they culch them, aim they nad rather handle a loss number and get a hotter price. “ Unt while we are arglng the restocking of our waters with newandbottervarioticsof fish, It Is In my opinion of equal importance that wo should have laws to protect the fish and stop the seining of them during tlio spawning season, and Dover at any time allow a seine to bo drawn with a mesh so small that it will catch a fish that is unfit for food SIBC*. The mushes of seines now used are so that every fish that will weigh a quarter of a pound, and even less, are caught This spring TUB SWEDES WHO HEINB ON TUB OAI-UMF.T used a net bo lino that they caught tho young shad R laced In that stream lust your, ond bushels of lose fishes were thrown out on tho bunks and de stroyed.

"Tho people of tho State arc becoming thorough ly awakened to this interest, ami some eighteen or twenty private fisheries linvebecu established this year, and (hero are others that 1 bavu corresponded with who are preparing to butch their owu spawn this full. "The demand for trout spawn lost year was In excess of the supply, ond, had 1 huvo had them, I could have dlsiKweU of 200,000 more than 1 had token. Prom the success of all other Status, and THR SUCCESS or FISH CULTUIIISTS BVSItTWHEUB, there Is nothing that I can see to discourage the In terest of fish culture; and my own experience, of some seven years, has been that private fish culture U certainly profitable.
