Among those excused were four who had been on the Jury wllhm a year, and others in whom the Court had a limited confidence. The Sheriff will complete the venire in the next few days, and tho Jury will be formally impaneled Thursday, though It will have little work to do, unless it takes up the exam ination into official crookedness. PBBIOLAT’B DOND3MBN. Late Saturday evening it was very uncertain whether Periolat, the Indicted, was in the city or not. Several shared In (he solicitude about his whereabout*, among others his bondsmen. Yes terday nil doubt of his prcscnco in tho city was re moved by his appearance at tho Criminal Court to readjust his bond. Ho brought with him his very B dealer friend ond peer, Aid. White, who ho arranged should take tho place of Multog. The Court was Inclined to make haste slowly In the matter, and sent Mr. Periolat to .look after his other bondsmen, and get their consent to the change. About 2 o'clock he turned up again, and, having seen Multog In tho meantime, tho bond was allowed to remain unchanged. Hlsothcr bondsmen were not a tittle uneasy lest ho should leave the city In haste, and only consented to re main on his bond after satisfying themselves by an examination of tho records that tho report that all of his property was in his wife’s name was untrue. Kimberly also rams Into Court daring the day and offered new ball, In the person of bis sister and mother, which was accepted. NEWS NOTES. Sheriff Agnew returned from a fishing expedition yesterday. Just In time to convoy a number of his boarders to Joliet Thursday, N. 8. Wilson. Police Magistrate, TownofClccro, yesterday sent in his resignation. His successor will be elected in due season. Tho County Clerk yesterday received the conri mission of Isaac U. Edgorton as Justice of the Pence of tho Town of Palatine, and delivered tho same. The West Chicago Hallway Company yesterday handed the County Collector 820.000, and the South Side Company paid SIB,OOO, being their re spective dues for personal taxes. From the Town of Palos reports are received again that the meadows are overflowed. The S>erty- holders protest against paying their taxes ep the circumstances, and (he Feeder difficulty Is beginning to assume a serious character. The Committee on Public Charities of the Connty Board Will visit the Insane Asylum to-day with the view of taking steps to relieve Kimberly. If the visit had been made before Kimberly was forced to stuff lhusloo bill into McCaffrey's pocket to secure his vote, Kimberly would have been bet tor off. Yesterday was quasl-crlmlnal case day In tbo Criminal Court; Some 1100 cases were called. Among ©them were forty-fire Sundny-ordlnsncc eases of 1873, which were dismissed on tho repre sentation that in many of the casus the fines hod been paid, and in the others that the law had been dumped, etc. Such cases as were not dismissed ware fixed for tml for the next few days. Van Byckcl, tbo straw-bail attorney, and Abbott and Hood, his dear friends, alt In Jail, failed yes terday to got bonds. They were visited by their friends, but no one seemed able to afford them any relief. If Van Bycket had the money he would doubtless advance s'J,l>oo to enable him to resume his visits to the police stations In search of vic tims, but. Inasmuch as he has not such on amount, and no friend who bos, hla cose looks a little des perate. Thcappllcantsfor Kimberly’s position as Warden of the Insane Asylum are numerous. Among nth ere are Vat llafferty. T. M. Unlpln. Stephen Kcuagh, and a dozen others. Kimberly's resigna tion takes effect Saturday, and his successor must be electodThurmlay.

CITY-II ATjTj. A 1.1V81.Y TIME THERE TMTBnDAT. Tbo City-Hall headquarters presented an unusu ally lively appearance yesterday morning. Tho decision had called out the vast horde of idlers and runners for news, however slight, and the balls of the building and tbo sidewalks surrounding wero crowded with n motley throng. lawyers, bank ers, merchants, loafers, ami bummers wore gath ered In promiscuous confusion. Many of them came really Interested. Tho majority came "for fun.” One would imagine that another South Town elcctlotPwas going on. Tho successful con testant's friends, or those who would be called friends, wero there, earnestly advocating the cause of their acknowledged Chief-Executive, and snouting his praises in must glowing .terms. Joe Forrest's beaming face revealed his thoughts, and John Colvin stood thoughtfully by. Mike Evans was there with his “by dang." Ed Phillips’ black face, and Dave Thornton's milk-snake eyes and velvet-trimmed coat wore very conspicuous. For hours tho crowd bung around, and all through the day an unusual number of persons remained to speculate on the change In tho administration. The man who was re-elected by tho Courts was tbc centre of attraction, and his friends rallied to bis side. Where once was tho sign In large black letters on a pasteboard card, ‘ • Mayor's Office, ” there was nothing. In tho City Clerk'd private room was nothing but Aldermen. Mr. Hnyno was not there, nordlrlhcappear during the day. His sense of right kept him from intrusion. Tho hand of a vandal (ore the sign from tho door, and tho air of long ago settled down on Col. John Moody and bis assistants. Around about were the Jubilant ones who regard Mr. Iloync’s defeat iw Colvin's victory, while the mure thoughtful regard the " victory " as a death stroke to Colvin’s oft-repeated claim to (ho Mayoralty til) April, 1H77. Those whom Mr. Hoyno's desire for economy led him to remove, were glad to have a chance to say that hu had been too much in a hurry, when he was not sure that he was tho Mayor, and that ho had acted foolishly. They prophesied, in coso Mr. Horne and Colvin should run for tho office, a ma jority forCnlvtn of sumo 15,000 votes. OGDEN AVENUE RAILWAY. The Committee on Streets ond Alleys for the West Division, met yesterday afternoon and dis cussed an amendment asked by tho West Division Ilorse-Iliillway Company to a franchise recently granted to them to lay a track on Ogden avenue tram Madison street to Western nvcmic. Tho amendment provides that the city shall, in case at the expiration of the franchise It bo not renewed, purchase ail the old traps,—horses, care, harnesses and tracks that tho Company may havo on hand. Tho Hon. J. Bussell Jones represented tho Company, and explained that tho amendment was desired merely to protect the Company, who did not wish to lay out SIOO,OOO, which the track, bums, etc., would cost, when nothing wonld ho made on (he line, at least for several years, and at tho end of the time havo no surety that the fran chise would not bo renewed, leaving tho track and u bam which wan to bo built, on their hands useless. The other franchises, he stated, had the provision, and the Company greatly desired It In this case. Tho amendment was met by opposition on tho part of the Aldermen, who think It un unnecessary pro vision. Action (hereon was deferred to another meeting, and tho Committee then considered some petitions for PAVING WEST POLK STREET. It seems that two men are anxious for the Job, and ono isJ, V. McAdams, and the other J. U. Smith. It appeared that each one had circulated n petition among the residents of the street, and each one had received the signatures of seven eights of tho resident*. Smith had got his petition Ik fore a Committee of the old Council first, and It had been approved and recommended to tho Coun cil, although many residents bad said that they had not signed his (Smith's) petition, and desired that the work bo given to McAdams. In fact, they pro nounced tho signatures that Smith had on his roll ns forgoriers, and showed that names were there of abundance of men who did not own a foot of. ground on tho street. Tho Smith petition wo* set down by tho Committee yesterday afternoon as "crooked." ond some of tho Aldermen present said that It* passing the old Council Committee won a "Job." Aid. Lawler, Beldlcr, and Throop so agreed, and said that it did not look wall for liyan. White, and others of that old Committee. Aid. Lawler, In particular, denounced it as a Job, and thought that a thorough examination would be beneficial. Mr. Smith and a man who assisted him to obtain signatures were present, bat offered no explanation. The petitions wore finally referred to the Board of Public Works, and tho meeting ad journed. TUB JOINT COMMITTEE ON STREETS AND ALLEYS for the three divisions of tho city, hold a meeting yesterday afternoon in (ho City Clerk's o(Qc« to consider the resolution Introduced in the Council by Aid. Throop providing for a suspension of street-cleaning, and for steps to economize In ex penditures in that direction. Consid erable time wan spent In discussion, tad Commissioners I’rlnalvllta and Thompson, of the Board of Pnlillc Works, were called In to giro their views. Ah rclaten to economy, the Commis sioners Agreed that machinery was the quickest and cheapest means of cleaning, but that there was very little way of reducing expense, except by cleaning less surface. The appropriation for tho purpose was so small that the streets would have to go partly unclcancd nil the lime or entirely un denned after about Bept. 1. There was but little being done at tho present time. One of the mem bers of the Committee proposed that each ward bo cleaned by separate contracts, and (tint one of tho Aldermen of the ward bo made Superintendent of the work.

TUB BRIDEWELL PRISONERS, Considerable question was raised by interested persons os to whether tho release of tho bridewell prisoners was legal or Illegal, leaving the question of the Mayoralty aside. "Suppose lloyne was the Mayor. Did bn have any authority to do that act?” wm repeatedly asked. One side claims that no ordinance was ever passed by the Connell com pelling the prisoners in the Bridewell to do any work, and that consequently they could nut be al lowed $2 per day for work they were not compelled to do. Others claim that the "Act of Incorpora tion ’* distinctly provides that the rate shall he $2 a day for all work done, and the fact that work was done, oven were It anno by custom, would hold good. The subject attracted much thought and a consequent diversity of opinion. Thu section of the act relating to the question slates that the Council shall provide by ordinance for the classes of work suitable for tbo prisoners, and that tho lines shall bo worked out at the rate of (2 a day. Mayor Colvin says tiiat he is disposed to let the matter alono at least fur the present. The recap ture of those released is considered as Impossible.

Cntr.\no, June ft.—ln your l**nn of Sunday last, you published an article on tho danger* of eating pressed corned beef, In which my name figure" largely. Thu article doc* mo InliiMlre nud Injury; therefore. I feel Justified In asking (hut you give this place lu the same column*. To my patron* and the public I owe a statement of tho .fact*, which were grossly mis stated tn the article In question. Ever since I hare been engaged in pulling up for aide pressed corned beef 1 havo *o far a< wa* possible had a per sonal fliiporvinlon over (ho purchase of stock ami Its preparation, and If any meats going from my place have been found unwholesome lam at pres'- ent utterly unable to give any explanation or tho cause, uml can only say that my best Judgment has at nil lime* been used in the purchase of meals, ami tho utmost earo In its preparation. Tub Tiunusr. sage “by looking close ” discovered In the centre of n rolf which looked healthy and natural, and smelled fresh, a speck much tho color of verdigris, produced by boiling In n copper kettle. The Turn unr sago by Inquiring at my plars of business could readily novo , satlsllcd himself that this wa* not tbo case, as copper-kettle* have never been used in my business. Hut it Is to that portion of the article wherein Is said, •• It is said of Smith (hut no erdeuro can bo attached tn tho story) that he Ims recently bought diseased cattle because they were cheap, and Hint be has killed them nud corned the beef, nud placed It In pressed packages," that I must wish to reply. This is utterly and unqualifiedly false, ns the *agn could easily have learned if bo bad used a little of hi* wisdom in inquiring Into my business, instead of listening to tho stories of my enemies and rivals In business. It is false In that, first, I do not kill any cattle, but buy dressed entile on the market; secondly, I have never purchased a pound of dis eased or cheap beef during nil (he time I have been In business. I have universally purchased only the best, as I can establish by tbo fol lowing firms, with whom I have mainly dealt: llrltton A Goth, Sweeny- A Co., Joel Hills, and Dennis OTnnnor. No one can regret more limn mysolf that unwholesome meat should have pone from my place of business, but that It occurred through any carclcssncssof mine In Its preparation is certainly not true, and that It occurred through tbo use of diseased or cheap meat Is likewise untrue. 1 Ahall leave no stone unturned in my effort In learn tho cause, which 1 hope soon tn be able to do.

Yesterday afternoon a conference of minister*, the Committee of Seventy, and Mr. Moody, was held In Lower Fnrwrll Hall. Mr. Moody presided. Tho object of thu meeting was to discus* the mat ter of retaining Mr. Moody In tho city, and Inau gurating a scrica of revival meeting* In some great hall, to be conducted by Mr. Moody. Tho Bcv. William Alvin Bartlett opened tbo proceedings with prayer, aflcr which the hymn, •• The tic that binds our heart* ” was snug. MU. MOODY said that some months ago ho had received n letter from tho ministers of Chicago to come back hero nud labor.. That letter had affected him, hut upon his return from Europe his friend* had urged him to work in New York and Philadelphia, and lie thought tho work was not thrown away there. Ho bad been Invited to go to Boston and work, and tho question lay between Chicago and Boston. lie loved Chicago dearly. If he commenced In Boston, It would bo early In tho fall. Tho excitement might (hen reach all over New England and then they would have better success after in Chicago. It might bo best to commence (ho work in Chicago or Boston, but that was for tbo meet ings to decide. lie only wanted tho ministers to give np other church evening meetings during a period of thirty days. It would not affect their Sunday services. Thoilcv. Dr. .Tudktn said that lie was favorably impressed with what Mr. Moody had said, anil thought that every Impulse could bo thrown Into one great meeting each evening. wnurf? The Rev. Dr. Mitchell wanted to Itnovr when Mr. Moody wanted to begin. Mr. Moody said about the Int of October. Dr. Mitchell said that Mr. Moody woo wanted to c onio to Chicago and labor. Mr. Bartlett said that the sooner Mr. Moody came to Chicago, the better It would be. Chicago wos spoiled, and it was lime to begin now. There wo* no church in Chicago hut what would bo con* trolled by Mr. Moody and do as he wished during tlm meetings. lie thought the meetings should commence early In the fiili. There was no obstacle in the way, ami Mr. Moody would have such an op* portunity as bo had never had anywhere else. Elder V. A. Turpin said, on behalf of laymen, that they wanted Mr. Moody to commence aa soon as possible, and that the I’IIBStIYTRIUANS WOULD DO ALL TUET COULD to sustain him. The Rev. Mr. Davia said that the sooner Mr. Moody came tnc better, and ho thought that the Ist of October was ns good o time m any to com* mcncc the revival work. Mr. Moody thought that the Presidential cam paign might bo In the way, and it might be best to wall nntll the campaign was over. The Rev. Mr. Walker thought perhaps It might bo best to wait until a Illtlo later in the fall, when they could procure the Exposition Building. The Rev. Mr. Judkln said that while Chicago furnished few working Christian people, they wero of that thoroughly imbued kind which would ac complish much good and assist Mr. Moody. Mr. Moody said that be could not state when ho would commence work in Chicago, If ho began In Boston first. Probably the first of January next. The Rev. William Parkhurst said that there never was a time when there was no excitement of some kind In Chicago—either political or other wise. lie thought they could fill any hall where Mr. Moody might preach, whether there was a fiolltlcnl campaign or not. He thought he business men would take care of the business part and expenses. They NEEDED ME. MOODY NOW, to bring this city to Christ Ho thought the meet ings should not ho postponed further than October. Sir. Moody said that he was going to Boston to confer with the ministers, and ho would telegraph whether he would first commence boro or there within thirty nays. The Rev. Mr. Johnson, of the Providence Col ored Paptlst Church, made a brief address In behalf of at once commencing the work; In order that the Northwest might bo reclaimed to Jesus Christ. (mid that ho thought that the political campaign would not interfere with or militate agalnnt tno meetings. lie thought if they had God’s spiritual InilnenCo with them there was no doubt of success. Ho only wanted to say for his Church that they were ready to give money, time, and prayers for the work. The llcv. Mr. Kimball said that "Hope long de ferred makolU tho heart sick, ’’ and he was opposed to putting off the time, lie wanted tho work com menced early In tho season—the sooner the bettor. It was best to begin early In the fall. The Ilov. Mr. Darrctt, representing suburban churches, said that ho was In favor of commencing tho work early in tho fall. The Hcv. Dr. Fallows spoke of the earnest work necessary in Chicago, Just such work us Qod bad given Mr. Moodv the power to do—earnest work la Jesus Christ. Tho Rev. Mr. Chappell and tho Rev. Mr. Drob ston spoke in a similar strain. The Rov. Kir. Whitehead, of tho North Side, moved that Messrs. Moody and Sankey be Invited to come to Chicago as early in the fall as possible, or as soon as arrangements coaid bo made for tho meetings. Mil. J. V. FARWELI, sold that they could get tho Exposition Dnlldlng about the Ist of November, ami bo thought It coala be conveniently arranged for tho purposes In tended. Tbo motion of the Rov. Mr. Whitehead was then put, and unanimously carried. Mr. Whitehead stated that he thought they might commence the work in Farwoll Hall about a month earlier. Mr. Moody thought that they should have a large meeting holt. The Rov. Dr. Goodwin thought that (hoy should pot an Immense haH, and, If It became necessary, to nut up a building especially for the purpose, and not to wait until the Ist of Novomoer. lio did not want Mr. Moody to go tolloston, but stay in Chicago, and work In tho great Northwest. Mr. Hallock upoke in favor of commencing the mootings during tho time of tho Exposition. PREPARING TUB WAT. Tho Rev. Mr. Judkins offered the following: Jletolceil, That from this time onward we will bold a special union meeting for prayer and union conference upon Monday of cacb week, looking for revival. Elder Pcnflold thought that such a meeting should lio appointed for every Monday at noon in that hull. Mr. Moody thought It woe a good preliminary work for the ministers to got together and pray. Kir. 11. O. Spollord thought that they should have Just each a meeting In Farwoll Hal) to prepare for tbo work, tho pastors taking places on the plat form. The Rov. Mr. Davis asked Mr. Moody to explain UOW TO QO TO WORK. Mr. Moody said that ho thought (ho ministers could da a great deal of good If they could got bold of Qod lu prayer. Ho thought It would bo a good Idea for tho ministers to work every day. and on Monday meet at noon after their ministerial meet ings. The Rov. Mr. Parkhnrst moved that a committee of ono from each denomination to conduct and ad vertise tbo ministerial meetings, and to co-onorato with the Executive Committee, bo appointed. Carried. The following commute wu chosen: Congrega (lonnl Church, the Rev. I)r. Goodwin; Baptist, tho Rov. Ur. w. W. Everts; Episcopal, the Rev. Dr. Hopkins; Methodist, tho Rev, Dr. Judkins; Central Church, Prof. Swing: Reformed Episcopal, RUhop Cheney; Lutheran, tho Her. Mr. Severing haus; Christian, tbo Rev. Knowles Shaw. Mr. Moody said that ho was willing to go to work at once, but ho thought he ought to nave k MTTIiB TIMB rOli MBDITATION, as bo has not bad a cbanco to prepare new ser mons. The Rev. W. 11. Daniels thought Mr. Moody’s sermons scorned better by bearing them repeated. Ho bad heard some of them three or four times, and they had always interested him. He thought that even their publication did not hurt their effect. The Rev. Mr. Dnffleld thought that they should not be thrown off their balance by Hr. Moody’s remarks. They should not deprive Mr. Moody of a brief communion with God, from selfish motives. They should allow Mr. Moody to do as Christ dic tated to him to do. The Kev. Dr. Goodwin thought It would ha spreading tho work too much If it was commenced thin summer. Mr. B. W. Dlatchford said that he had boon among the laymen, and all were in favor of com mencing the work as soon as practicable. There were reasons In the suggestions which Mr. Moody had made, as bo needed rest, lie thought, how ever, that Mr. Moody should stay over another Sabbath. The Rev. Mr. Caldwell offered the following: Jhtolced, That in case Brother Moody should de cide tbit ho ought to begin his work In Boston in October, wo desire blot to return and Immediately begin work bore. The resolution evoked a furtbcrdlscuasloo, after which Mr. Moody slated that It wae well enough for them to ■peak about bis continuing work audio say bis old sermons were good enough. It was all well enough, but when bo saw the audience look ing over too newspapers while ho was preaching to sou If bo was speaking according to the print, there was something which peculiarly stirred a man. It was well enough, but he had not looked up bis books (or five years, and ho thought ho needed a little lime for meditation and to gather new thoughts. Ue was only a layman, sad It waa more difficult, besides, bo nsd always five or six reporters alter him« woo were giving everything ho •nid to the pnblic, and he was compelled to get op at least one new sermon. * tvnni unu nan nt'tuiutt, The Conference then adjourned.

In speaking on "The Pastor's Outlook," gave a sketch of his work In tho minis try, from the time ho entered lint Janesville, Wls.. down to the present, lie was pastor of tho Second Church before the Rev. K. .1. Uoodsoecd, and paid that gentleman a complimentary tribute for Ida services during a period of ton years. Ills physi cian bad recommended his coming here on account of his wife’s 111-health, nnd he had determined to come. The day previous had been his first Sunday bore, and be had enjoyed it. lie had come around nearly to the point whence ho had started, nnd wan glad once more to breathe tho air of the Great Northwest. lie trusted he should till the place ac ceptably. An astute Tmntmc reporter, he said, had stated Unit he was a man In ids flfttes, and weighed 1(10 pounds. lie was mistaken in both Instances. There was nothing like going away from home to lenm what kind of n man you are. He had beard that he was a sort of a dandified preacher, and not adapted to minister to poor people. Ho hoped to show, by his works, to the contrary. Tho Rev. W. C. Richards read an original hum orous poem, which elicited considerable merri ment. A hymn, written by C. R. Blncknll, was sung by the choir, after a few remarks by Prof. Mitchell. The Itev. N. U. Wood closed the exercises with prayer.

CHEAP, HEALTHEUI, NUTRITIOUS POOD. Use tlio Excellent Compressed Meats of X.lb by, McNeill & Libby, Put Up In Hormotf cnlly Scaled Cans—Wlmt n Tribune Kopro sentativo Saw and Learned at Their Estab lishment. The statement made of late In several of the papers that certain persons have been Injured by eating pressed corned beef hare led us to make thcsubjcct amattcrof careful Inquiry- The result of our Investigation will bo of great public ben efit If it only succeeds in making people more cautious In wbnt they buy and cat. Messrs. Libby, McNeill & Libby, of this city, a year or more ago, undertook the preparation of com- S reused, cooked corned beef, using therefor the nest selected quality of meats. Their beef nt onco became very • popular, and an ex tensive sale for ‘lt sprung up nil over the country, until the supply was hardly equal to the demand. Of course they found Imitators. Various other parlies undertook thu preparation of corned beef of an Inferior quality, prepared aud put up by a much different process, In hopes of drawing off their trade. It Is unfortunate that the good should suffer In nubile estimation with the bad, and, In order that justice may bo done a deserving, wldely-uscd. and very popular article of food, wo make this statement voluntarily, that the compressed oomed beef that has caused all this mischief Is not that put up by Messrs. Libby, McNeill & Libby. The goods of this last-mpn tloncd firm arc put up In hermetically-sealed tin cans; those which have produced the evil com plained of are wrapped In cloth and painted, and sometimes Incased in tin-foil. Messrs. Llbhy, Mc- Neill «fc Libby ore among our most prominent and reputable packers. Their house nns an ex cellent reputation. Last year over 40.000 beeves were slaughtered there—the very choicest cat tle that are received In this great cnitle mart, lie sides using only the very nest of beeves and the selected cuts for their widely celebrated coin pressed, eookod comcd-hccf, the utmost core and cleanliness Is employed. A visit to their mammoth establishments both on State and Sixteenth streets by the writer yesterday showed every part thereof as neat and dean as a Now England kitchen. In order to allay any fears that our friends throughout the country might havo in regard to canned comed-bccf, wo will add that the great Cambridge (Mass.) chem ist, Prof. E. N. Horsford, after a thorough and careful analysis of their meats, says: “On opening the can, the aroma of cooked corned beef which exhaled was perfectly fresh and most grateful to the sense of smell. The appearance of the meat may bo described as brilliant. 1 find It perfectly sweet, most accept able to the palate, and unsurpassed by such plain corned beef as lam able to obtain In the market. The practical tests were entirely satis factory. 1 have no hesitation, therefore, In pro nouncing the sample perfectly sound; and, os I am perfectly familiar with the process of prep aration pursued by the parties, 1 may add that 1 know' of no reason why, In the ordinary work of their establishment, every sample of mont put up by them should not bo Invariably wholly sound and healthful. n The above testimony Is simply unimpeachable, coming as It docs from ono of the highest au thorities on the subject of wholesome food In the country. Wo shall continue to recommend to the favor of the public the excellent canned meats prepared by Messrs. Libby, McNeill & Libby. MEDICINAL MALPRACTICE. May Doctors Administer Horrible Potions with Impunity? Special DUpatefi lo The Tribune lowa Citt, lowa, June 5. Some time ago a man residing In this city named Kverard Palmer brought an action in one of tbo courts of Poweshclk County against Doctors Harris and Clark, of Grlnnoll, where Palmer formerly resided, for malpractice, laying hla damages at $20,000. For soms days post testimony in the form of depositions of Doc tors Moon. Shrader, and* Graham, of this city, have been taken on the part of plaintiff. The case involves this question, which Is Interesting to tho medical profession: It appears that the wife of plaintiff had boon affected for somo time with some sort of nervous disease, and employed this firm of physicians to treat her. The doctors had been giving her lady slipper for some time, but concluded to change to valerian, and made a mistake, as Is claimed, and pave vcralrum vlrldo Instead of tho valerian. However, the plaintiff claims that aconite was Sven In an overdose, instead of tho valerian. It charged that only aconite could produce the ef fects ou tbo patient that plaintiff claims wns pro duced by thu quantity taken. It is charged that tho medicine, whether veratrum vinde or aconite, produced an affection of the stomach and bowels and a swelling of the Hubs which have become permanent and in curable. All this tbo defendants deny. The case will turn mainly on expert testimony, and attracts no little attention among the medical profession, as to what extent doctors aro liable for malpractice In the administration of poisonous medicines. ffIAUUIAGES.
