We thought that the attempt to make it appear to the public that certain firemen were being persecuted because they were members of the Law and Order League, and its disastrous failure, would put a stop to such nonsense, but it seems we were mistaken. The difficulty between Messrs. ALLEN and JENNINGS, street-car drivers, is to be another case of persecution. The facts in the case are as follows: Mr. ALLEN made himself very obnoxious to Mr. JENNINGS, and sent him an Insulting...

LOUISVILLE, June 28.—Ten Broeck, once the king of the running turf, died of paresis of the brain in the stable of his owner, Frank B. Harper, Woodford county.

The gallant old horse suffered greatly until death came to his relief. Ten Broeck was foaled in 1872, and was by imported Phaeton, out of Fannie Holton, she by Lexington. His records at one mile, two miles, and four miles have never been broken. On September 27, 1870, he ran four miles here in 7:151 In a race against time.

THE TRUTH. Thursday Evening, June 30,1587. Tracking Old Soldiers. HOW THE WHEREABOUTS OF THE VETERANS IS RECORDED IN THE PENSION OFFICE. Washington, June 28.—The splendid system by which the whereabouts of old soldiers throughout the country is obtained by the Pension Office officials, was never better illustrated than in an incident made public to-day. A few days ago the Crescent, a weekly paper published at Appleton., Wis., contained a communication from an old soldier residing in that place asking for information concerning the address of the wagon master who had charge of the train which marched from Alexandria to Hempstead, Texas, in the spiing of 1805. The clew, as will be seen, was very indefinite, but the paper was forwardt-d to the pension office and referred to Major Butts, the chief of the army and navy survivors' division. The records of the office showed that the only troops making a march in 1865 under the foregoing circumstances were the 2d Wisconsin cavalry. The next...

Nashville, Tenn., June 30. —The people ol this section are excited over a ghastly discovgry made Monday near Cookville, situated on what was known many years ago as the Kentucky Stock road. This was »t the time the principal highway for traders between Kentucky and Georgia or South Carolina, Stopping places on the road were few and far between, and many men returning after selling their stock never reached home. Some years ago a skeleton was found at the entrance to a cave near Cookville, and a few days ago a party concluded to explore the rave. Back on the mountain side, about one-half a mile from one of the notorious stopping places on the old road, the entrance to the cave was found. A hole something like a well going straight down some thirty-five feet was first passed through, and then the cave opened into large caverns, with a downward course under the moun...

She is looking haggard and careworn. Her wrists bear evidence of her assertion that she was brutally tied up and her finger ends certainly look as if her claim that an attempt was made to draw her nails with pincers was true.

The management is in no wise responsible for wliat appears in it.] Editor Truth .•—Why is it that such miserable accommodations and bad management are the rule at present in vogue by the nianagment of the City Railway Company? It is becoming a nuisance. On Sunday, July 26th, the transfers were frequent and the crowding uncomfortable, but being the first Sunday it Was overlooked. But on last Sunday, July 2d, better things were looked for. The transfers were improved, but cars were not provided for the immense crowds that were waiting at Lombard} 1 street, for example. The dummy train arrived with over 100 people, and there was only one bobtailed car at hand which holds less than 25, and those were persons who rushed forward and left helpless children ana ladies in the lurch. At last, tired with waiting, several ladies had to walk the entire distance from Lombardy street to their homes. Question—When ...

The celebration in Independence Square was as old-fashioned as could be desired, as far as the enthusiasm of the people was concerned, but it was like an old-fashioned Christmas, as far as the decorations went. The stand onwhich the speakers and Citizens' Committee sat and stood was hung with bunting, and the State House had flags floating from the staffs on the roof. The speakers' stand stood in a roped off circle in the middle of the square, and two hundred police officers, under Superintendent Lamon and his staff of captains, kept the five thousand men, women, and children from infringing upo...

THE TRUTH. Wednesday Evening, July 6,1887. MADE HAPPY BY THE MAYOR. A Mulberry-Street Romance Culminates at the City Hall. Felicia A. Morlno, a pretty little Italian girl, fifteen years of age, lived With her mother and stepfather at No. 53 Mulberry street. New York. Here she met Domiliico Morino, a young Italian workingman of the same name, but no relation. They loved and came to the conclusion that if they were not married neither could ever be happy again. There was a neat little turn of $800 left by the father of the girl when he died, and this probably added another charm to the young lady in the eyes of Dominico. He asked the mother of the girl for her daughter and was refused. The sweethearts cared not for that. They took the matter into their own hands and ran away to the City Hall and sought the services of an alderman to make them one. Harry Van Pelt, the clerk who attends to the municipal matrimonial matters, inquired her age, and being informed that &he was s...
