Kid Cummings Arrested for Stealing a Time Piece
Harry CUMMINGS, better knows as Kid CUMMINGS, was arrested in Marysville yesterday, on a telegraphic dispatch from Chief CROWLEY, for grand larceny. About a week ago CUMMINGS visited the Golden Rule Bazaar, ostensibly for the purpose of purchasing a gold watch for his grandfather. He selected a time-piece valued at $90, and in consideration of depositing $15, he was allowed to take the watch to a jeweler and have it tested. After leaving the store he went to Sacramento and swindled a merchant out of $15 on a check purported to be signed by Bancroft & Co. of this city. He then went to Marysville, where he was arrested. Detectives BEE and HARPER brought him to the city last night, and at the City Prison he was charged with grand larceny.

The Stevedores met last night at Irish American Hall. The principle business of the evening was the election of officers for the ensuing term: The following officers were elected: John GRIFFIN, Recording Secretary; W.J. BYRNE, Financial Secretary; Thomas ATKINSON, Corresponding Secretary; John COGHLAN, Treasurer. There was no election for President or Vice-President, as their term of office extends to the end of next June. Eleven new members were initiated and all members reported plenty of work.

Their Preliminary Examination in Police Court
The preliminary examination of William S. THOMPSON and James PUGH, ex-police officers charge with the murder of Charles C. ROSENBROCK, was begun in Police Judge LAWLERS court yesterday forenoon. THOMPSON waived examination, and the prosecution proceeded to ascertain whether or not PUGH should be held as an accessory. The testimony was substantially the same as that given at the Coroners inquest and no features were brought to light.
Charles HARRIS, a hackman testified that he saw THOMPSON fire three shots at the deceased, and Emma WILLIAMS, Police Surgeon MARTINEAUT, Judith DELIMAND, Officer P. CROSBY and Detective John MEAGHER gave the same stories as when examined by Coroner STANTON.
Judge LAWLER will give his decision this morning at 10 oclock.

A Notorious Character on Trial for Robbery
The trial of John HARRINGTON, who is better known as Happy Jack, was begun yesterday afternoon before Judge SULLIVAN and a jury. He is charged with robbing Morris GRIFFIN, a Santa Cruz lumberman, of a gold watch and chain, a galvanized watch and $100 in coin, on September 21st. The testimony showed that HARRINGTON met GRIFFIN in a Mission-street saloon, and after getting the latter drunk conducted him, with the assistance of a friend, to De Boom street. Once there they proceeded in the most approved manner to deprive GRIFFIN of his valuable. While at work they were observed by several persons, who yesterday identified HARRINGTON as the man. He is a noted character in this city, and about a decade ago became a convert to the principles of temperance, and was installed in a Market-street coffee house, but soon fell from grace. About eight years ago he was sent to San Quentin for robbery, and has been at liberty but twenty-two months. After several hours deliberation the jury failed to agree and was discharged.

A Cook Slashed With a Pen-Knife Across the Left Cheek
About 3 oclock yesterday afternoon John MAURICE was brought to the Receiving Hospital by Officers CUMMINGS and LINSKE, suffering from a knife wound in the left cheek. He stated that he had been assaulted by a colored woman on the Barbary Coast, but as he was unable to give her name, the officers were sent out to ascertain her whereabouts.
They returned shortly after, having in charge a young colored woman named Josephine WATTS, alias Topsy, who is quite a well-known character in this portion of the city. It appears that MAURICE, who is an Alsatian, and a cook by occupation, had been in a room in the Tehama House, on the corner of Broadway and Kearny street, in company with woman, when a dispute arose. MAURICE accused her of having stolen $12, and she resented by drawing a large sized pen-knife and slashing him across the face. During the trouble W. BAILEY, the clerk of the house, separated the couple and threw the knife into the back yard.
The woman was arrested in the vicinity of Battery and Pacific streets, and conveyed to the City Prison, where she was charged with an assault with a deadly weapon. MAURICES wound is not of a serious nature, but extends down the left cheek and under the chin.

Preparations Being Made for His Approaching Execution
Preparations are now being made at the County Jail for the execution of Leong SING, who is sentenced to be hanged on next Friday. The condemned man speaks very little English and appears to care very little about his approaching fate. The rope which is to be used is not undergoing the stretching process, and on Wednesday next the erection of the scaffold will be commenced.
The jail is now being painted and renovated so as to be in proper condition.
Leong SING killed his uncle Leong CHUN, on March 30, 1887 and nine days later he was convicted of the offense. The Supreme Court recently confirmed the decision of the lower court, and Judge HUNT passed sentence a second time. Very few applications have been made up to the present time for passes to the jail on the day of the execution.

It Is Denied Probate on Account of the Testators Unsoundness
Judge COFFEY yesterday made an order deny probate of the will of William SHARKEY, who died in May last, leaving his entire estate, valued at $10,000, to Margaret KING, who was his housekeeper.

They alleged that their brother was of unsound mind when he made his will, and that he was unduly influenced by Margaret KING. SHARKEY was a well-known expressman on the water front. The Court held that the deceased was of unsound mind when the will was made. The property will now go to the sisters.

The body of Michael KEENAN, a native of Ireland, about 65 years of age, was removed to the Morgue yesterday, where an autopsy will be made to ascertain the cause of death.

Identification of the Body at Masseys Dead-House
Coroner STANTON, acting under instruction from the Board of Health, last night commenced an investigation into the detention of a body in Masseys undertaking establishment on Sacramento street. The Coroner learned that the body was that of a woman who had died in a hotel at 319 Bush street, on October 26, 1879. Her name was Abby ESTHER, and at the request of her husband the undertaker took charge of the remains.
Mr. ESTHER gave instructions to have the body embalmed and be sent to the dead womans relations in the East. He subsequently countermanded the order, and notified MASSEY to preserve the body until he received word from him. ESTHER afterward went East, and since then nothing has been heard from him.
Coroner STANTON will today visit the Health Office to ascertain if the death certificate was filed there. If there is nothing irregular about the case the authorities will let the matter drop.

Upon the finding of a true bill against him by the jury his bail was increased to $1000.

A Jury Find Him Not Guilty of Embezzlement
The forthcoming Christmas will be a very happy one for William P. BULLARD, who has been on trial before judge HOOHY and a jury for two weeks past. Late yesterday afternoon the jury found him not guilty. The charge against him was for having, on January 12, 1884, embezzled $1000 from Bray Bros., while acting as their book-keeper. This, it was asserted, was done by under-adding page 602 of the cash-book, being the folio showing receipts of money by the house between the 12th and 18th of January, 1884. To show this under-adding of the column of figures was intentional, a number of similar instances were proven, whereby $69,000 was claimed to have been abstracted, running over a period of ten years.
Each error in the books was shown to enure to the benefit of BULLARD. Besides under-addition of the receipts there was over-adding of disbursements, and erasures, whereby about $40,000 was asserted to have been stolen. The defense offered no testimony, but contented itself with destroying the evidence produced by the prosecution. The case has attracted widespread attention, owing to the influential position of both the prosecuting witnesses and the defendant, and was ably handled on both sides. Charles B. DARWIN appeared at special counsel for the people, while Henry C. McPIKE conducted the case for BULLARD.
Throughout the trial the defendants wife attended, and seated by her husband displayed the deepest interesting the proceedings. When the verdict of the jury was announced tears filled her eyes in gratitude. The jurors on the first ballot stood ten for acquittal and two for conviction. The second ballot resulted in eleven votes for acquittal, and on the third ballot all the jurors were unanimous. This is the second time BULLARD was tried on the charge, the first resulting in a conviction.

The Jury Returned a Verdict Against an Illegal Voter
The evidence in the case against Bert CHRISTMAN, alias Chris WILLIAMS, charged with illegal voting, was concluded on Thursday afternoon, and Judge HOFFMAN instructed the jury yesterday morning, before their leaving for the jury-room, to try and arrive at a verdict. It was 4:30 oclock in the afternoon when the jury asked to be taken back into the courtroom, and on Judge HOFFMAN taking his seat, the foreman state that after five hours, although several ballots had been case, they found it impossible to agree upon a verdictthat the last ballot stood six for guilty as charged and six for not guilty. The foreman said they desired further enlightenment on what could be understood as the residence of a party entitled to vote, state that on this question the disagreement rested.
Judge HOFFMAN further instructed them on this point, and the jury again withdrew.

The Dunphy Family Desire to Take Her Soon to France
Judge COFFEY was engaged yesterday morning in hearing the matter of the guardianship of Viola C. PIERCY, and the long standing quarrel between the PIERCY and DUNPHY families was again brought into prominence. The child is the eight-year-old daughter of Samuel C. PIERCY, the actor who died of small-pox at Boston several years ago. The mother of the child, who was a daughter of William DUNPHY, the large cattle-owner, contracted the same disease while nursing her husband, and did not survive him. After a bitter contest in 1883 William DUNPHY was appointed guardian of the young girl, who inherited her fathers share of the property of John C. PIERCY, her grandfather, amounting to some $40,000. Under the decision of the court the grandmother, Mrs. PIERCY was granted the privilege of visiting the child three times a week.
Yesterday William DUNPHY asked for an order revoking the previous order of the Court allowing Mrs. PIERCY to visit the child three times a week. R.H. LLOYD appeared for Mr. DUNPHY and explained that the application was not made because their was any objections to Mrs. PIERCYS visits, but for the reason that the DUNPHY family proposed making an extended trip to France, and proposed giving the child a European education. All that was desired was a modification of the order, as it would be impossible under the circumstances for the grandmother visiting the child three times a week.
W.H.L. BARNES, who appeared for Mrs. PIERCY, in an extended address opposed the motion, and stated that the child was being reared in such a manner that she cherished inimical feeling against the family of her father.
Mrs. PIERCY was sworn and testified that she had not been allowed to see the child whenever she desired. She did not object to the child going to Europe, if she was allowed to correspond.
Judge COFFEY decided to appoint William DUNPHY as the guardian of the estate of Viola C. PIERCY, and ordered that he file a bond in the sum of $50,000.
