The matter was unearthed in connection with the proposed women and girls' purity bill introduced this session by Sir John Thompson, Minister of Justice. A prominent member of Parliament a few days ago received a letter from a justice of the peace in the province of Ontario giving a detailed account of the occurrence. The letter was handed to the Minister of Justice, who brought the matter to the notice of the govern- ment. The letter contained a sworn declaration to the following facts: A young Church of England clergy- man in a populous parish in the western the province of Ontario was brought before the magistrate in ques- tion on five .charges of debauching small boys. The evidence taken in the casas was of so revolting a character as to pre- vent its being published. In four of the cases, because the boyo had not resisted the infamous proposals of tho fiend, the charges 'were dismissed. In the last Tsise found guilty and sentenced to three months in ja.il, this being the severest sentence tbe law allows. It appears that this fiond in the garb of a clergyman debauched not less than twenty young boys in that vicinity. BLOWN LSTO THE AIR. Railroad Laborers Killed and Fatally In- jured by au Explosion.

Su- preme Court yesterday decided the Thompson mandamus case by granting a peremptory writ ordering State Auditor to allow Thompson's bill for mileage and per diem. Thompson is a Republican member of the Legislature from Silver Bow County, being one of the five elected by throwing out tbe Tun- nel precinct. The court goes into the question of certificates, and sustains the position of the Republicans that certifi- cates from the State Canvassing Board are only prima facie evidence of mem- bership in the Legislature. This decision makes the Republican body the legal j Legislature._____________ I Shot From by j SAX Avrojno. Tex.. Jan. the Son-is ranch Monday night Kieves Quintra was murdered by Manuel Orta- gas.

The Bole of Contract Wttk U Declared and Ca> Not Enforced. NEW YOKK, Jan. the Supreme chambers yesterday Judge O'Brien landed down his decision in the suit of the New York League Base Ball Club for an injunction restraining short stop Ward from playing with any other than ;he New York club. The judge decided the case in favor of Ward, refusing to if rant a preliminary injunction and in- sisted upon a speedy trial. In deciding the case, Judge O'Brien says: "A court of equity can not en- force the affirmative covenant of the contract and make the defendant play with the plaintiff. The court is asked to enforce the negative covenant and enjoin the defendant from playing with others. It would be necessary, in order to pass on this point, to decide that there is a definite contract." The judge then quotes parts of the contract to show it is not definite and says: '-Not only are there no terms and conditions fixed, but I do not think it is entirely clear that Ward agrees to do anything further than to accord the right to reserve him upon terms there- after to be fixed. He does not covenant to make a contract for 1890 at the same terms and conditions as during the sea- eon of 1SS9." "The provision relied upon as consti- tuting the contract between the parties merely reserves Ward for 1890 at a sal- ary of not less than But how much more is he to receive? And in case of a dispute between the parties, how is the amount of salary to be determined? It is nowhere provided that the terms and conditions for 1890 are to be the same as those for 1889." To show the want of fairness an mu- tuality, Judge O'Brien says the contract requires a similar one to be made out for each succeeding year, ad infinitum. The ten-day clause, by which a player may be summarily discharged, is then referred to and the court says: "The club may at any time, at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of the play- ing season, when the player is in New York or San Francisco or any where else, and without the assignment of any cause whatever, determine all its liabilities and obligations under .said contract, leaving the player to make his way home as best he can." He says further: "We thus have the spectacle presented of a contract which binds one party for ten days and of tha party who is itself bound for only ten days coming into a court of equity to en- force its claims against the party bound for years." After referring to authorities, he says: "A serious doubt arises as to the plaint- iffs being accorded upon the trial the re- lief asked for." Judge O'Brien denies the motion to enjoin Ward from playing with others, and says that the trial of the action it- self can come off before the ball season opens. In refusing the preliminary in- junction the judge says that he will as- sist in securing a speedy trial of the case. IAW-MAKEBS. tMnct Tax BUI Illinois Town Swept by the Grippe.

No action was taken on these amendments and tha whole matter went over. After a brief secret session the Senate ad- journed.

A bill was passed providing that, in cases ot pension claims of dependent parents, it shall only be necessary to show to the Pension Office that the parents are without any other means of support than manual labor.

(The bill pro vldes for the issue to National banks ot circula tion equal to par amount of bonds deposited as security not in excess of capital stock paifl in.) Considerable debate followed and without final action on the bill the House adjourned. JEALOUSY Arrest of m Street Jonductor Who Supposed to Have Shot His A Fight About Which Nothing Cer- tain. BROOKLYN, Jan. Hagen, a carpenter living in South Brooklyn, died yesterday morning from a pistol shot wound in the forehead inflicted dur- ing a row at his ho'use Monday night. Hagen, who was at one time in an in- sane a'sylum, became jealous of Charles Lawson, a street car conductor who boarded home Monday night with a revolver and ordered Lawson to leave the house. The latter retired to his room and locked the door. Hagen then turned on his wife, who jumped from the second-story win- dow, breaking her ankle. What then transpired is only learned from Lawson, who said Hagen broke in his door; that he took tbe revolver from him and threw it under the bed and that he (Lawson) then escaped to the street. He thinks Hagen then got the revolver and shot himself. Physicians say it was impossible for Hagen to inflict such a wound on himself in the kitchen, where the pistol was found, and then return to tbe room where he was found uncon- scious. Lawson was arrested and com- mitted to await the action of the coro- ner on a charge of homicide. Co-operation a Failure.' 3 PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 29. The co- operative system of running stores for the ostensible purpose of helping the working classes seems to have proved a failure in Philadelphia.

Its membership grew to and at one time it had eight stores in paying operation and in bank. Then its trade began to de- cline and it is now practicaliv defunct.

Schreiber, aged twenty-one years, on Sunday shot Miss Emma Fry and George Meissner, as they sat talking on tho balcorfy of the girl's home, eight miles east of here. The girl will probably die, but Meissner will recover. As Schreiber rode out of the yard Albert Fry, a young brother of the girl, seized a re- volver and fired three shots at him, tha last of which took effect in the back of his head and knocked him down, but ho arose and resumed his flight. Schreiber was found Monday in an old house in the neighborhood, almost dead. In addition to the shot he had received from Fry he had shot himself with the last cartridge in his revolver, but failed to inflict a fatal wound. He had then taken a heavy stone and tried repeatedly to crush his head, and each, blow had rendered him unconscious for a time. He was brought here and lodged in jail, where he lies in a very precari- ous condition. Schreiber and Meissner were rivals for the hand of Miss Fry. WICHITA, Kan., Jan.
