alleged, kicked him on the leg.  The company could not allow such an assault 
to pass unpunished, and hence the suit.  Dr. Lester  S. BALDWIN testified as 
to the plaintiff's injuries, which were serious at the time.  The jury, after

causing the death of Peter CASEY, a lamp-lighter, on the night of Oct. 12, 
1892, was begun in the Court  Sessions, before Judge MOORE, this morning, and 
resulted in the prompt acquittal of the accused.  Several witnesses were 
examined, and the testimony of each tended to show that CASEY and MC CARTHY 
met by accident at the corner of DeKalb and Franklin aves.; that CASEY was 
under the influence of liquor, and tried to pick a quarrel with MC CARTHY, 
who, in the endeavor to avoid any disturbance, pushed CASEY away.  The latter 
fell on the sidewalk, striking on his head, causing cerebral hemorrhage, from 
the effects of which he died.

convicted, and if convicted the conviction would not stand.  He therefore 
directed the jury to render a verdict of acquittal, which they did without 
leaving their seats.  MC CARTHY was thereupon discharged.

Matthew LAWLER, a young man, employed as a salesman by Schaeffer and

by a Prospect Park policeman on last Tues. night, at the lake house in the 
Park.  The assault was witnessed by a large number of persons, many of whom 
expressed their indignation at the unwarranted attack.  LAWLER is well-known 
in South Brooklyn, where he has the reputation of being a quiet, temperate, 
and inoffensive young man.  He is a member of St. Peter's Catholic Library 
Assoc. and the Fransiol_ Reading Circle.
The officer who assaulted him is Sergt. FOSTER, of the Park police, and the 
occasion, as described by Mr. LAWLER, and substantiated by James MELNERNEY 
and Joseph LAUGHLIN is as follows:  LAWLER and his friends had been skating, 
and when through, LAWLER went to the lake house and sat upon the rail to 
loosen his skates.  At the same time Sergeant FOSTER came along, and ordered 
him off the rail, and before he could comply with the request the sergeant 
struck him on the head with a cane.  LAWLER was indignant, and spoke to the 
sergeant about the injustice of it, and for a reply was again hit with the 
cane.  He then took the cane from the officer's hand and threw it away, and 
the sergeant then used his fists on him, and struck him brutally in the face 
discoloring and bruising the flesh about the eyes, and continued to beat him 
and accuse him of being drunk.  At this time the captain of police came up 
and saved LAWLER from further punishment.  LAWLER has filed a complaint with 
Commissioner BROWER, and intends to push the case.

President Henry HUTCHINSON, of the Brooklyn Bank, has nipped in the bud what 
he firmly believes to have been the beginning of extensive operations to 
swindle banking institutions of this city.  On Jan. 10, two men calling 
themselves SCHWERIN and SWEENEY, respectively, called at the Brooklyn Bank 
with a written introduction from Grocer P. BLANK, of lower Fulton st., who is 
a depositor, and opened an account, depositing $80 in cash, and a check on 
the Hanover  National Bank, of New York, for $12.75.  Mr. HUTCHINSON says 
that Mr. BLANK admits hardly knowing the men.  The callers purported to be 
prospective purchasers of Mr. BLANK'S business, and spoke of a larger 
deposit, which they would make later.
Mr. HUTCHINSON sent one of his clerks to Mr. BLANK, who gained information 
that led him to order the transaction on business with the suspects, 
suspended.  On Jan 11, Mr. HUTCHINSON entered the bank just in time to 
prevent one of the men from depositing $9,000 or $10,000 in drafts, drawn on 
different banks, and drawing out $500.  The drafts were all payable to the 
order of James CUMMINGS.  Mr. HUTCHINSON refused to permit the transaction.  
The visitor drew a check for $90, but, as he had in but $80 in cash, he was 
asked to make out the check for that amount, as he had not been identified in 
connection with the Hanover check, which was signed by a regular depositor.  
The $12.75, the bank now has in its possession.  This game was carried out 
with success in another local bank, the name of which Mr. HUTCHINSON would 
not divulge, whose loss is understood to have been about $150.
The way in which Mr. HUTCHINSON connects the same men with both operations 
is, that the drafts presented to the alleged swindled bank were also endorsed 
by "James CUMMINGS."  The men gave as addresses, 315 Fulton street and 2 
Tillary street, but no one of either name mentioned could be found there.

16 January 1893
Inspector WILLIAMS' and Captain DOHERTY'S Cases Called

Commissioners are now at work hearing witnesses.
At 11:15 this morning the trial of Inspector WILLIAMS was commenced before 
the Commissioners, in New York, all of whom were present excepting Mr. MC 
LEAN.  Capt. DOHERTY'S trial was included with Inspector WILLIAMS'.  The 
charges against them were made by Superintendent BYRNES, because the accused 
failed to enforce the laws against the disorderly houses raided by 
Superintendent BYRNES last week.  The same charges were also made against 
Inspectors MC AVOY, and Capts. WESTERVELT and DOUGHERTY.
At the proceedings called this morning, WILLIAMS stated that he had not 
employed counsel, as he would depend on the fairness of the Commissioners.  
The two accused pleaded not guilty.  Mr. BYRNES told briefly the story of the 
Bowery raid in their district, also stating that his understanding was that 
it was his business to enforce Rule 414, under which the charges were made.
Commissioner SHEEHAN asked Superintendent BYRNES if he had given any special 
instructions in regard to the gambling houses raided.  The Superintendent 
said, no, he  had given plenty of general instructions in regard to gambling 
houses.  Inspector WILLIAMS cross-examined Superintendent BYRNES: 
    "Do you know that I was cognizant of these gambling houses?"
    "Did you ever call my attention to either of them?"
    "No.  I think not.  In fact, I am sure I did not."

Edward GEOGHAN, a truck driver, 28 years of age, was 
placed on trial this morning in the Kings County Court of

presiding, for murder in the first degree, in having shot
and killed his wife, Ellen GEOGHAN, at the residence
of her sister, Mrs. Catherine BRENNAN, 103 Wyckoff 
street, on the 8th day of September last.
The case is being prosecuted by  District Attorney
RIDGEWAY, while Counselor MCMAHON appears for the accused.
On the day in question, GEOGHAN went to the residence
of his sister-in-law, where his wife was stopping, and 
emptied the five chambers of a 32 calibre revolver at her,
two of the bullets took effect, one lodging in the woman's 
head and the other in her stomach.One of the bullets, in
glancing off after striking a piece of furniture, slightly 
wounded the six-months old child of the couple in the right
thigh, the burning powder from the weapon setting fire to 
the child's stocking.Another bullet shattered the index
trigger finger of the murderer.GEOGHAN, after the shooting
threw the revolver into a pail of water in the kitchen and fled
from the house.Patrolman STEABOLD, who lives in the 
neighborhood, heard the shots, and on going into the street,
and seeing GEOGHAN in the act of running away, started
in pursuit, and captured him after a short chase.
GEOGHAN on being taken back and being identified by his
wife as her assailant cooly denied that he had done the shooting
or had ever had a revolver; but a carving knife as sharp as a 
razor, with which it is supposed he intended to finish the job
if the pistol failed, was found in his breast pocket.The couple
had been married but eighteen months, but quarrels growing
out of the husbands jealousy became so frequent that Mrs.
GEOGHAN resolved to leave her husband.The latter, she said,
had also threatened to kill her and conceived a violent hatred of 
her mother.Mrs. GEOGHAN was removed to the hospital, where she died
soon after.

The SINN Case
A Petition of an Annullment of the Marriage The mysterious suit of 
SINN vs. SINN, which is on the calendar of the Brooklyn City Court, before
Judge CLEMENT, was called this morning.It is a well known fact that 
Col. William E. SINN,of the Park Theatre, was the manager of Cora B.
TANNER, and that he finally married her. It is also well-known that they 
did not get along amicably and that they separated.When the case was put on 
the calendar, efforts were made to learn the cause of the action, but the counsel,
the plaintiff and the defendant, all refused to state the cause.Some surprise 
was therefore caused when Robert S. GRIFFIN, who appeared for Mrs. SINN, said
this was an action brought by Col. SINN for the annulment of his marriage with 
Miss Cora TANNER,on the ground that she had another husband at the 
time she was married to him, and from whom she had not been divorced.
Counselor GRIFFIN said he was not ready to proceed with the action for the 
reason that the issues had not been framed, and he not had time
to prepare the case.Counselor HILL, who appeared for Col. SINN, did
not want an adjournment, as he was very busy, and had to go to the Court of 
Appeals.Judge CLEMENT said he would hold the case over until tomorrow.
Counselor HILL said he was anxious to have the evidence of a witness taken, 
who had come from the upper part of the State, and who could not remain
in the city After some further discussion, the case was adjourned
until 2'oclock this afternoon.Neither Col. SINN nor Cora TANNER SINN was in
court, and the counsel refused to give any further information in regard to the 
case, but the important witness referred to, it is said, is the first husband of 
Cora TANNER, and that he is C. Fred FARLAND of Rochester, N.Y.
At 2'oclock Col.Robert INGERSOLL,who appears for Mrs.TANNER,and Counselor HILL, 
who appears for Mr. SINN, came into court, and Mr. HILL stated
the nature of the case in which it appears Cora TANNER was married in Michigan 
in February, 1878, to DR. C.Fred FARLAND; that she was divorced in Illinois, 
and that she married Col. SINN in a hotel in Ohio in the presence
of a part of the company. Dr. FARLAND was called to the stand, and testified 
that he had married Cora TANNER,but he had never received any summons or complaint 
in a suit for divorce.

Placed In Jeopardy By An Insane Policeman

in his private room at the station house yesterday afternoon
heard the sound of a succession of pistol shots coming
from the dormitory upstairs. He rushed upstairs, and 
found Patrolman John J. MURPHY pacing the room
alone and excitedly muttering to himself.
" Capt. FRENCH wants to kill me," exclaimed MURPHY
just as the Captain came within hearing distance; " and I must
kill him," as he tragically strutted across the room, flourishing
his revolver.
By this time all the chambers of the weapon were empty and
Capt. FRENCH with the assitance of the Sergeant, soon
overpowered the policeman, who was clearly insane.
The walls of the dormitory were broken in several places 
where the bullets of the five chambered revolver had penetrated.
After being overpowered, MURPHY, quieted down, but his very
action showed that is mind was affected.Police Surgeon MORRISEY
was summoned and the unfortunate man was taken home in a coach.
MURPHY has been acting strangely for several weeks past, and has
frequently expressed the opinion that Capt. FRENCH was his enemy,
and would do him some harm, but no especial notice was taken of him.
He has been on the force nearly four years, and has a good record.
Capt. FRENCH made a report of the case to Commissioner HAYDEN to-day.

Divorce Refused.
Mrs. Mary SWAZEY claimed that her husband was cruel to her.
Counselor STAFFORD made a motion in the Special Term of the City 
Court before Judge CLEMENT, this morning, for a bill of particulars 
in the suit for divorce brought by Mary SWAZEY against her husband, 
Franklin P. SWAZEY, on the ground of cruel and inhuman treatment.
Counsel read from the complaint the story of the alleged cruelty and 
ill-treatment, which stated that plaintiff had not been properly 
cared for or supported; that this neglect had resulted in sickness, 
during the existence of which she had been refused proper medical 
attendance.  Plaintiff further alleged that, during a residence in 
Baltimore, defendant had failed to take her to places of amusement or 
instruction, and had absented himself from home until 12 o'clock at 
night as often as five nights in the week, although his business 
ended with the day.  During this time he failed to provide her with 
food, and she was compelled to borrow money from her friends to get 
her meals at a restaurant.  Defendant had made her sleep on a bed 
that was placed in a draught, and, when she had said, "Frank, I'll 
catch my death of cold." defendant replied: "I don't care a d-m if 
you do."
"What further particulars do you want than that?" said Judge CLEMENT.
Counselor MEYERS, who appeared for the plaintiff, arose to say that 
the compalint set forth a general course of ill-treatment, which, he 
thought, sufficiently specific.
Judge CLEMENT said he thought so, too, and, after some further 
protest from Lawyer STAFFORD, denied the motion, with costs.

      OSMOND, the Murderer, Will Be Executed in June.

** note the two different spellings ROEHL--ROHLE

   The murderer John L.OSMOND was brought down from Sing Sing this morning to 
have a new date fixed for his death. He was resentenced by Justice INGRAHAM 
in the Court of Oyer and Terminer to-day, and the time of execution was 
arranged for the week commencing June 12.
   John Lewis OSMOND was convicted of the murder of his wife, Mary,and his 
cousin, John C.BURCHELL, on Oct 3,1891, at 609 Third avenue. OSMOND was 
jealous of BURCHELL. He was convicted of murder in the first degree and 
appealed.The conviction of the lower courts was affirmed by the Court of 
Appeals, April 11.
   OSMOND was one of the murderers in the cells to whom *ROHLE and PALLISTER 
offered freedom by escape, but he refused to go.OSMOND says that the escaped 
murderers made noise enough despite the storm, to awaken everybody. At least 
it seemed so to him.He also denies that they offered freedom to HARRIS, but 
they compelled him to give up his cigarettes. They took OSMOND'S coat and 
vest, and were three hours in getting out.
   The latest advices from Sing Sing are that *ROEHL and PALLISTER have not 
been recaptured.The authorities are still hunting and Guard EATON has gone 
out on a mysterious mission with a Winchester.
    There is a story that ROEHL'S parents at Bremerhaven have both died of 
grief at the disgrace brought upon them by their son.The parents were 
well-to-do people in Germany.

  The Grand Jury brought in several indictments to-day in criminal cases. 
Frederick KRONCKE, a saloon-keeper, who was enraged with killing his wife a
