Some Interesting Cases Up A Bel-
ligerent Female nna Her
Several drunken men were arrtstcd
yesterday who were a little too full of
New Year whisky but all such were al-
lowed to go scot free by our liberal lie-
corder. August Schwartz was accused of curs-
ing an old man and It was proved he did
so but the old man was drt'nk had been
working fur htm and wanted somo
money Schwartz had already paid him.
Murray drove his hay nagon careless-
ly along Commerce street Wednesday
afternoon and broke a few spoke's In
Sl.ecrn'8 buggy wheel. He was drunk
and was arrested but the case was dis-
missed on his paying the damages to the
Mollle Campbell n white Inmate of
Gordon's bagnio was accused by a col-
ored girl named Annie Hardeman of
striking and abusing her because sho
would not make a Are for her. It was
proved that after Annie made the affi-
davit against her she Annie offered
to compromise for the sum of$2 60. The
Judgo said he would dismiss the case at
less than cost and did so.
An old gentleman named Freeman
used Insulting language to Vlo Ksparza
one or the boys who helps Pound Master
Olesson capture strayed stock. Mr.
Freeman's horse strayed away and
when he found It the pound man had It
In charge. Freeman said he thought
some Mexican was Irving to steal the
animal and he used the language afore-
said. Fined $6.
Miss lone Palmer one of the fair as
well as frail ones got on the warpath
yesterday because one of her former
boarders used Insulting language about
her. She got Into n hack and vlsltc'd the
offending one Miss Klla Iloselle and
found her at a negro woman's house on
Concho street. She went In and showed
fight but Wla refused to light and ran
nway. Peace was restored and the bellig-
erent female was Induced to leave with-
out getting any gore. Ella swore out
two charges against her one for carry-
ing n pistol and one for Insulting
language and the case wns tried this
morning. It was proved to be a trumped
up charge In both cases and the court
promptly dismissed them.
Kiln ltoselle Indulged In her femi-
nine privilege and talked too much In
court and was lined $5 for contempt
but the case against her for using Insult-
ing language was dismissed.
T. M. Hunt wns charged with beating
and sulking Mr. II. II. Kldls. adjuster
and claim agent or the Oalvtston Har-
risburg and Son Antonio railway yester-
day. The case resulted from business
transactions between tho two men nnd
Hunt alleges that Kldls called him a
thief which he resented. He was fined
$10. A charge has also been preferred
against Hunt before a Justice of the
Peace and the Constable tried to arrest
his man from Captain Shardeln's hands
but could not do so until the Hecorder
wns thruogh with him.

The Complications In the Muni-
cipal Affairs of tho City.
S'ew YonK December 31. Squire the
new Commissioner of Public' Works
took the oath o'r olllce to-night. The
Mayor's olllce wns tilled with politicians
up to 10 o'clock then the collation was
served and the orowd went away.
Squire made a speech In which he prom-
ised to perform his new duties faithfully.
Congrcssman-eleot Velle resigned as
Park Commissioner and Mayor Kdson
nominated Jesse W. Powers a contrac-
tor In his stead. Mayor Edson notified
Police Captain Steers to take charge of
the books papers etc. at midnight as
his (the Mayor's) term or olllce would
expire at that hour. This notice gave
corroboration to the rumor that Presi-
dent Kirk of the Board or Aldermen
uould ajsume the olllce of Acting Mayor
and appoint the corporation counsel be-
fore noon when Mr. Grace will become
Tho grand Jury In the Court of Gen-
eral Sessions falling to secure the atten-
dance of Mayor Kdson to explain the
Aldermnnlo struggle over the appoint-
ment of a Commissioner of publlo
Works In place of Hubert Thompson
asked to bo discharged. The request
was granted. The acilpn of Mayor id-
son will be considered bythenext grand
Jury During the argument to dissolve
the Injunotlon restraining the Aldermen
from confirming any nominee or Mayor
Edson. Color.tl George M. Bliss who
represented Alderman O'Connor said It
was sought here to elevate to the dig-
nlty or the basis or an Injunction or this
amazing character tho tattle or news-
Eapers and which very papers ir they
od been right In the post would have
established the unfitness or the very
Judge who Is sitting In this hearing.
Judge Truax Interrupted ltllss and
said ho could not nor would he allow
Miss to mako such reference to the
court and that a gentleman would not
have done It. The Judge said he would
commit Bliss for contempt If be did not
wiiuuraw wutti ue nau saiu or the court.
Bliss said he would withdraw and con-
tinued bis argument. i
New York January 1. The feeling
about the city hall to-day Is by no means
as Intense as yesterday nnd last night.
Ihe prinolpnl e rents of the morning
were the appointments by Kirk who
had been sworu in as Acting Mayor at
midnight lie appointed Colonel K. T.
flood. Mayor J'.dsou'a brother-in-law
and a Tammany leader In the Twenty-
fourth Assembly district as corporation
counsel and James M. Lyddr. another
Tammany man as his own chief clerk.
Both gentlemen qualified Immediately.
Colonel Wood then went over to the
olllce ot Corporation Counsel Lccoinbe
nnd made a formal demand for posses-
sion or the olllce. Lacombe declined to
surrender and Wood retired. At 12:30
Mayor-elect Grace entered the Major's
olllce. which Mas crowded with Grace's
friends. The new Mayor made a brief
address of thanks Tor his reception nnd
assumed his duties. After a short time
the politicians began to leave the bulldl
lng. Hubert O. Thompson says he wll-
make no opposition to Mr. Squire when
the now Commissioner of Public Works
comes to take possession of that depart-
ment. Corporation Counsel I.ecombc notified
Mayor Grace of Colonel Wood's demand
upon him and thereupon the Mayor or- i
uereu n ueiau oi ponce euiucicni io se-
cure the corporation counsel In peace-
able and undisturbed possession or his
olllce and to preserve the property and
records or the city from the Interference
of any person. The police remain on
duty nil night. Another complication
has arisen by the election of Alderman
Wnlle to the Presidency or tho Board In
the absence or Alderman Kirk. Walte
claims that Kirk cannot be Alderman
and Mayor nt tho same time.

The fair Ernestine Dollmar has de-
parted leaving various creditors to
mourn among others J. W. Hannlg to
the tuno of $1000 and Mr. Gregory
about $78. Yesterday morning tho fair
one told her young lady boarders she
was going out and would not be back
that day. The same evening a hackman
told them that the frail Ernestine would
not be bsck as the grand Jury had In-
.dieted them nil. The Inmates at once
proceeded to shake the dust of the man-
sion olt their feet and packed all their
trunks. During this period Ernestine
Dollmar returned In n state of excite-
ment but allowed tho girls to go and
soon after followed herself. The man-
sion this morning was silent. All the
furniture remains so that the creditors
will be enabled to recover part of tbelr
debts it Is believed that the debt laden
Ernestine Is still In town.

ing a little Mexican cart which con-
tained the trunk and clothing he bad
stolen. The little baby was alio In the
cart nearly frozen to death. Van ltlper
lodged his prisoner In the county Jail
and took the child to its mother who
ror some time despaired as to whether
she would be able to restore her little
child to consciousness.
