The report of the committee on intellectual de- velopment made it the duty of every so- ciety to provide at least six lectures an- nually advocating the principles of the Turnerbund; also to establish night and Sunday-schools forth.- joung between fourteen and eighteen years of age and to stock their libraries with moral lit- erature. The committee on ethical cul- ture submitted that two prues should be given annually for essays on turning and general subjects. A long discussion arose on the proposition a teachers' seminary in Milwaukee, Wis., and to consolidate with it tho German- American teachers' institute of Indian- apolis. The latter has heretofore been a per- ambulating institution from city to city. The need of an institution like this was to provide a placs where Turner teach- ers could be qualified mentally to teach in public schools, where tbe children thus tutored would favored in bavin? competent instructors to drill both their bodies and their minds.

CHICAGO Juns Thirty-five freight crews, each comprising a conductor and two brakemen, running upon the Illi- nois and Iowa divisions of the Illinois Central railroad struck Monday morn ing to secure the dismissal of the divi- sion supenntandent, E. G. Russell, anc the reinstatement o! Oliver Berry and 1 E. Pushy, trainmaster and assistan trainmaster, respectively The men claim that Russell favoritism, has discharged men without cause and has acted as a spotter upon conductors, switchmen and even crossing tenders. The strike was precipitated by Russell's interference with sending out freight crews last Priday. A committee from the Brotherhood o; Railway Trainmen met Superintendenl Caliwell yesterday. The superintendent was willing to reinstate Trammastei Berry and Pushy, assistant, who discharged by Russell, but he thought the demand for Russell's was too much. The men would not yield, however, and freight traffie wasbroughl to a standstill. The strikers, however, permitted four trains bearing perisha ble goods to bo brought in so that it might be unleaded.

June 24. -The Faseet Sea- ate committee held a special sesston Monday for the purpose of hearing she testimony of Richard Croker, the Tam- many Hall leader. The Superior Court room where the hearing took place was filled to overflowing with spectators. Patrick H. McCann and his wife, who a sister of Mrs. Croker, were in the au- dience. Croker said he had lived in this city forty years, and had- been al- derman two terms and coroner two terms, also a fire commissioner and. city chamberlain. He resigned tbe last named office in February last to" go to Europe for his health. He had ootfte from Europe contrary to the advtoe' ot his physiouin in order to refute the charges made by MoCann. Lawyer Choate read McCann's testimony about the S1SJ.OOO which he had said had in a satchel to bribe tbe aldermen to get a confirmation by them of Grant's appointment by Mayor Edson for Com missioner ol Public AVorks. .Croker said it was absolutely untrne in all particu- lars. He had gone to McCann's store about that time, but had not carried a ontchel nor any large sum of money. No such sum had been raised for such firmation nor any sum, nor bad Grant raised for such purpose. He said he had visited McCann's about the time" referred to. He asked McCann if he had heard anything about a rumor that had been raised to keep Hubert O. Thompson in the office of Commissioner of Public Works. Mc- Cann. thought that "Tom" Adams, Who was intimate witk Aldsman Person, might know something about it He met Adams in store by ap- but Adams said he knew nothing of the rumor. Tam- many Hall was doing all it could at the time to fight against the reappMutraent of Hubert 0. Thoiipson and he had de- sired to forestall any efforts made by Thompson toanange for A confirmation. It v.-as also untrue that the witness was to get ten cents OT every barrel of cement used in tbe Department of Pub- lic Works providing Grant got the nomi- nation. Grant had stood godfather for his daughter Flossie and had given her S5, 000 in bills on two occasions as pres- ents. The money was not given by rea- Mayor Grant. The'money had been in ve.vted in October, in a house for the benefit of tbe child, taking title in his and his wife's name jointly. Mr. Croker stated the circumstances of Mayor Grant's gift to Flossie Croker. The first had laid in the house about a year without drawing interest. Shortly after the second was given it was decided to purchase the property for Flossie. Mr. Croker said he had not shared in the returns of the register's, county clerk's, or sheriff's office. He had not asked register Reil- ley, nor subsequently register Slarin, to contribute to the campaign fund. He could not remember what Hewitt, Grant, Bookstaver or others had paid into Tam- many Hall. Ho did not know that the gamblers or liquor dealers had contrib- uted to Mayor Grant's campaign. A FIGHT AHEAU. Whiiky to De- Plans for Making War Upon Truftt NEW YOISK, June 24. Tho wholesale whisky dealers met again Monday to re- ceive the report of the committee, ap- pointed recently to devise a of pro- cedure against the whisky trust The report, which was unanimously adopted, recommends that the trust be requested to abandon the rebate vo-cher system, so that dealers can purchase spirits in the open market. If the request is re- fused. the report recommends the for- mation of a co-operative distilling com- pany with a capital of -S500.000, in shares of 5100 each, the to be taken by the wholesale liquor dealers, no sub- scriber to take less than ten nor more than fifty shares: and that tbe by-laws be so drawn is to prevent the stock from being diverted to other than tbe origi- nal purpose. A committee will wait upon President Greenbnt. of the trust. to-day and make the request above re- ferred to. IN INTO mm. Crew Killed. the Carctr of at Tone, Jane The steam tug Alice E.

Young PaUi Down a Gorge at n Death Enmlng In- June pictur- esque pleasure resort known as Nayaug Falls, on the outskirts of Scranton, was the scene of an accident Sunday which was witnessed by a thousand horror- stricken persons and resulted in the death of Jennie Keller, thirteen years old. The girl with a party of com panions was walking along a slopinc cliff which overhangs tho deep chasm through which a roaring- brook runs noisily to the falls below, when she lost her footing and went tumbling over the precipice, a height of nearly a hundred feet, and was dashed to death on the rocks. A cry of horror rose from tho crowd ol pleasure seekers and scores of men hastened to the spot where the poot girl lay. They carried her lifeless body to the station at which the electric cars halt and there it was found shortly aftei by her heart-broken relatives. The scene of this Sunday afternoon tragedy is a wild and precipitous spot in the midst of the most beautiful surround- ings. It is visited on Sunday afternoons by thousands. TRAIN BOBBERS' SECRETS.
