Tjasit niglit tlie eiagant Main street man-
sion <if Captain E. P. Turner was liie sceno
of ono of the most doligTitCul and charming
social events of the season. It was the
gathering there of a theater party of the
xashioiVaule young folks of ourcity, and wan
given by Captain and .Mrs. Turner and
their winsome daughter Miss Daislo, com-
plimentary to the beautiful and cliarming
Miss Maidie I'opo of Austin, than whom
there is no lovelier, fairer nor more accom-
plished in all this broad land. She has been
the guest of Miss McAshan for a few days
only, and within that, time has won to her-
self many infatuated admirers of both
sexes, but especially of the sterner sex,
The spacious and handsome parlors
received the gnests a few minutes
after 11 o'clock, at which hour
the theater turned out. They had not more
than got themselves in readiness for danc-
ing after their arrival when Herb's full
Light Guard baud opened a serenade in
l'ront of the house. Several choice pieces
were rendered, after which the stringed in-
struments entered the dancing apartments,
and I lie enjoyment was continued till 1.30
o'clock. A magnificent spread was o, fea-
ture that was largely promotive of the
liappy success of the -event, and elicited
m any pretty utterances complimentary to
the fair daughter of the Capital city. Mrs,
and Miss Turner were charmingly graceful
in the extension of their hospitality.
Couples present were Miss Pope and Mr.
E. II. Bailey, Miss Shcarn and Mr. H. R.

Tho cases of the State of Texas against
Jack McDade and R. T. Springfield, in
which the defendants are charged with the
kiilingof Steve Allcliin at Hempstoad, wore
Bet for trial before the criminal court to <,lay.
There were not less than 150 people Who
came down from Hempstead to be present
at the trial. Nearly a hundred of these were
witnesses and tho rest friends of the parties,
jjt 10 o'clock the prisoners were escorted
from tho jail into tho court-room by Sheriff
Elli3 ancl deputies. They looked pale, of
course, but seemed to be enjoying excellent
health and wore a cheerful countenance.
The state was represented by District
Attorney W. C. Oliver of Houston
and K. E. Ilorney of Hempstead, and
the defendants by Judge Gustavo Cook,
Captain J. C. Hutcheson and Mr. R. J.
Thacker. Tho court-room was crowded
With visitors, mostly from Waller county.
Soon after the preparation for trial was
begun, it was discovered by tho defense that
two or three important witnesses were ab-
sent, one of them being Air. Felkor of
Hempstead. At once the counsel for the
defendants asked time to propare an appli-
cation for a continuance. In order to give
the necessary time court adjourned to 2
o'clock in the afternoon, when it was recon-
vened. The prisoners were in the dock, and
by them sat the aged mother, tho young
wife, the fair sister and sweet children of
Captain Hutcheson read the motion for a
continuance on account ol1 the absence of
material testimony, which included proof
of the threat said to have been made by
Steve Allcliin, to kill the defendants. Judge
Cleveland took the motion, and after read-
ing it carefully granted the continuance
end set the case for the 13th day of Feb-
THE LOUISIANA STREET BRIDGE.
Tho members of tho street and bridge
committee, his honor the mayor and City
Attorney Ring, had a caucus this morning
on the question of going ahead with work
on the Louisiana street bridge, which has
been at a standstill since day before yester-
day. There was a good (leal of talk pro
end con, which resulted in Mayor Smith
asking an official opinion of Mr. Ring,
which he gave as follows:
To Hon, D. C. Smith, Mayor of the City of
Houston—Dear Sir: In regard to the con-
tract between the city and the King Bridge
company, relative to the buildingof abridge
at the foot of Louisiana street, I am of the
opinion that under the circumstances in
this matter the contract has not been for-
feited bv the failure of the company to build
the bridge within tho time specified in tho
contract. The facts in the matter indicate
that till! bridge would have been completed
within the time named in the contract but
for file action of the city tending to impress
the King Bridge company with the idea
that the city would be more than willing t6
have the completion of the bridge delayed.
Yours very respectfully, H. F. Ring.
On |tlie strength of this Major Smith de-
cided that tho work should go right ahead,
and has instructed City EngineerBreedlovo
to furnish the required data for the work-
men to use in beginning the construction of
tho bridge. There are several cars of lum-
ber now on the ground and wagons are en-
gaged in hauling iron from cars that have
recently arrived here from the manufactu-
JIM THE PENMAN.
To-day for the matinee A. M. Palmer's
Madison Square company presented for a
second time at Pillot's opera-house Jim the
Penman, to an immense audience,composed
jnostly of ladies. The company was strong
in every particular, and the audience seemed
perfectly carried away with the perform-
ance, The male strength of the company
was all that any one could ask. Miss Mary
SJrookyn as Nina Ralston was very power-
ful in all of the taxing situations that fell
to her. The ladies of the audience were es-
pecially ecstatic over tho handsome dresses
worn by Miss Brookyn. Miss Clara Lip-
Inan as Agnes, daughter of Mrs. Ralston,
took her character with perfect case and
grace, winning unbounded admiration at
the hands of the audience.
To-morrow (Friday) Miss Lillian Lewis

The mysterious disappearance of Mr. E.
A. Johnson, a portrait painter and school
teacher, is attracting some attention to-day,
it having* just beon discovered by his
friends. It seems that lie made an engage-
ment last Saturday to meet Mr. T. C. Tay-
lor on Monday, but failed to show up and
has npt beon seen since. Mr. Johnson was
engaged teaching a school on San Felipe
road, near the crossing of the Southern Pa-
cific track, two miles west of the city, On
the strength of his non-appearance Mr. Tay-
lor sent word to tho school-house asking for
Mr. Johnson, when ho received word that
the latter was not there and had not been
during the week. This created some anxiety
among the friends of Mr. Johnson and
they went to his room, which was found
locked, but upon being opened showed
everything to bo in perfect ordi r. No letter
or other evidence of any intentional wrong
to himself was found in the room, and the
mystery was still unsolved.
Mr. Johnson lias no relatives here, but
has been living here two years and In Texas
only about four years, and came originally
from Philadelphia. He was about 40 years
old, wore full greyish whiskers and was a
man of more than ordinary intelligence, of
very pleasant address and cheerful bearing.
Ills friends are still investigating the
mystery, but are as much at a loss now to
understand his disappearance as when they
first began the search.

AMERICAN LABOR FEDERATION
III .Session at St. I.outs—liejjular Propcod-
St. Louis, Mo., December 13.—The Ameri-
can Federation of Labor began tho third
day's convention this morning. Tho ques-
tion first raised w/is the admission of tho
Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and
Joiners to the federation. President Gom-
pers read correspondence in the matter
which showed that ho had labored with tho
amalgamated society until tho application
had beon received. Prior to its receipt, on
May 88, 1S80, in Philadelphia, it was decided
that when such application was made tho
United Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners, which is a member of the federa-
tion, would be consulted. It wasconsulted,
and a protest was received from its secre-
tary, P. J. McGuire, against tho admission
of the amalgamated society. President
Gompers did not refubo to grant the charter,
but brought the matter beforo the conven-
tion. Delegate Shield of the United Broth-
erhood said that his organization could not
consant to a recognition of the amalga-
Other speakers followed, and presently
tho following resolution was offered by a
representative of the International Cigar-
makers' union to dispose of tho probable
inference from some portions of the speeciies
that a rejoction of tho amalgamated society
was because it was not strict ly American:
Whereas it lias beon proved to demonstra-
tion that it is detrimental to tho interest of
labor to have more th^u one organization iu
any trade; be it
Resolved, that the objection raised by tho
United Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners against the admission of the Amal-
gamated Society of Carpenters be sustained.
Tho introduction of this resolution stirred
up the convention considerably, and strong
speeches were mado by several of the dele-
gates in support pf it. Tho gist of all tho
arguments was it would be manifestly an
Injustico to the American workingmen, for
the reason that after imported workers had
earned a neat pot of money, which properly
belongs to the American, they return to Eng-
land and spend their money, which protec-
tion to American labor secured by labor or-
ganizations has enabled thein to do. The
resolution was adopted.
The report of the committee on the presi-
dent's address was acted upon in sections
and udopted without any material changes.
VERDICT OF NOT GUILTY.
W, I). Younff, Charged With Killing Clulf
Rogers, Is Released.
C. C. Rogers on the 27th of July last, brought
in a verdict of not guilty. This case had
been set for the 14th instant, but yesterday
morning the case against George ani} John
Hunter, charged with the killing of Colonel
T. J. Williams one year ago, having been
continued until next term by consent of the
defendant and state, the venire in the
Hunter case was substituted for the one
which had beenoriginallysummonodforthe
Young case and the trial proceeded. The
facts in the killing wore substantially as
telegraphed at the time. Rogers and Young
met in a saloon, and after a friendly con-
versation and ^everal drinks Rogers made
a derogatory remark about some of Young's
friends, upon which Young gave him the
lie. Rogers struck him and dropped liis
left hand to his side, when Young caught
him by the shoulder, and thus holding liini
stabbed him to death with a large break-
The testimony showed that Rogers was
drunk, had no arms, was crippled, and en-
deavoring to get loose from Young all the
while. He succeeded in getting loose once,
according to the testimony of T. J. Bor-
deaux, but Young approached, shoved aside
his arm, which ho held up to ward oil' tho
knife, and stabbed him twice more to the
The defense succeeded in proving that
Rogers was a man of violent and dangerous
character, and upon this and Young's be-
lief that his life was in great jeopardy they
ruled for the defendant's justification.
Thus closes tjio last scene iu Chris Rog-
ers' tragic career. During liis thirteen
years as city marshal of Palestine and as
deputy United States marshal he estab-
lished a reputation for personal bravery
and official capacity and promptitude cele-
brated all over the southwest.
Besides five other men he had killed iu
various encounters, on the 19th of May, 1887,
when city marshal ho had a desperate
street duel with Thomas O'Donnell. in which
Rogers was wounded and O'Donnell killed.
This killing intensified the hostility of his
enemies, and from that time the fato closed
darkly around him, and the chapter was
ended on the day when he and \V. D. Young
met in Robertson's saloon and sat down for
a friendly drink and talk. On the trial
Young established a good character for
peaceful and orderly habits.

Proposes to Vigorously Prosecute Roads
that Havo Violated the Interstate Law.
Chicago, 111., December 18.—Interstate
Comnierco Commissioners Cooley and Mor-
rison left for the east last evening. Iu an
interview Judge Cooley sayn that the will-
ful violations of law and illegal and illegiti-
mate means resorted to by railroad officials
to secure advantages over each other re-
vealed by the investigation made by him-
self and Commissioner Morrison were much
worse than any member of tho commission
had supposed. Ho said that the commis-
sion was located too far away from the base
of operations of tho railroads. It should be
locaced where violations of the law
coulil bo promptly brougiit to
its notice and where prompt
and thorough Investigations could he maiia.
The investigation Into method* of tho rail-
roads in transacting passenger business and
other practices resorted to iu order to evade
tho law had given him an.l Commissioner
Morrison a better insight into tho illegal
practices resorted to by tho railroads than
they had been able to obtain since they as-
sumed their ofileo. Revelations of crooked-
ness wero simply astounding, and evidence
had come into the possession of the com-
missioners that would warrant criminal
prosecution against several railroad offi-
cials, and tho worst feature was that every
official examined admitted the facts, but
said that he did it because others were doing
it. Sortie of them even went so far as
to jusHfv their illegnl action on tho
ground that the law was oppressive
aud unjust. If the railroads thought tho
commission would rest with the admonition
given them at Tuesday's meeting of general
managers, Mr. Cooley said that they wero
greatly mistaken. That was done simply
as a warning to give them an opportunity
to rectify tho evils complained of without
further delay, and to bring them to tho
realization of the fact that tlio law must bo
enforced. The commission, he said, will
act promptly hereafter in every case of vio-
lation of the law that comes to its notice,
and guilty parties will be punished to the
full extent of the law. Tho commission can
not afford to have the law made odious by
permitting its willful violation.
