JVrfAeft afikod for n drink of water. A largo
tin cup of unflltered Oroton was givon to
him and quickly drained with n griinaco, and
Most was ready for breakfast.
Matron Wobb paid some regard to tho do
tdres of tho former membor of the Gorman
Uoichstag, and daintily prepared a sirloin
ttcok, poaohod eggs, rolls and hot coffee for
him. Most ate his meal with a rolish. and
enjoyed it much more than ho did the
noonday repast of cold Irish stew and beor
in a " growler" from whloh he was so rudely
When oskod by his keepqr how ho had
pnssed the night, Most smiled ono of his
most oxponsivo smiles, shrugged his shoul
ders and said :
" As well as might bo expocted," pointing
significantly to tho rough wooden bonch
which had been his couch. " My arrest and
imprisonment aro a groat outrago," ho con
tinued, " and aro a travesty on boastod

ties to provo that I ever advised any person
to resort to physical forco or to uso dynamite
or other explosives. Whon thoy wore used
by others I did not weep or moan."
Despite- tho unsatisfactory pine-board bed,
Ilorr Most rested well, and during tho night
watches was obscrvod to be sloeping soundly.
Ilis bushy hair stood up like quills upon the
fretful porcupine when ho awoko.butho said
nothing about comb or brush. Ho expressed
no solioltudo for water to batho in his chief

Shortly after 10 o'olock ho was cscortod up
the spiral stairway which loads up from the
prison direct to Inspoctor ByrneB's cosy but
highly suggestive quarters, and was prepared
for his journoy to the Oourt-Houso. He
made a pretenco of indifference, but it was
evident to thoso who know his habits that ho
was making a great effort to appear cool.
Inspector Byrnes and Detective Crowley
started from Folico Headquarters at 10.80
with Most, the arch Anarchist, smoking one
of the Inspector's good cigars. They rodo

Tho party reached Fart I. of the Court of
General Sessions at 10.SS. Host's chubby
form was oncAsed in a black coat and vest
and drab trousers, which fitted him as closely
as tho skin of a bologna sausage.
As ho sat in court his little gray oyos peerod
out from under his heavy brows in a sly way,
though there was an uneasy movement of
them about the room. Oddly enough. New
York's aroh Anarchist's hatred for the ' cap
italistic pross " does not doter him from en
couraging tho publication of nowspapcrs by
purchasing them, and while his eyes shifted
from face to face ho protended to bo rpading
a copy of Tub Would.
A tall, lean woman, with truly Anarchlstio
hair, not blood rod, but l a fiery huo, visited
tho District-Attorney's offlco early and stated
that she had come to offer ball for Herr Most,
Blie was directed to tho court-room and cat

Woro a handsome Paisley shawl and Btated to
n reporter tlutt sho was Ida Hoffman and lived
atC2 East Sovonth street, which houso she
owned. It wub worth $20,000 and bore a
mortgage for 811.000. She is an Anarchist.
Herr Most, after his entrance, set up a
jlesporots flirtation with tho woman, ogling
her in truly Auarchistio fashion.
William F. Howe, cpunsol for Most, put in
his appearance at 11 o'clock. He wore n.
naming red " four-in-hand " nook-scarf and
further showed what a terrible Anarchist he
was by taking notes with a red lead-pencil.
Despite tho resoluto defense of tho ontrance
door by tho court officers, who demandod a
subpoena or summons from evory applicant
for admission, tho room was crowded
with peoplo. Hundreds had formed
themsolvos into a silent reoeption
committer to Most on tho sidewalk in
, Chambers Btroet, but only a few dozens
. could gain admission to tho cramped court-
room, and the fortunate ones stared at the
Annrohist with all their eyes. Commodore
Girry waipno of them.
Judge Cowing took his saat at 11.15, and the
Court bocanie as quiet as the gravo instantly.
A long lino of minor offenders wero called to
the bar as a prolud ) to Most's case, and while
this was going on a roportor interviewed
Sho said: "My husband is Dr. Julius

Btatouicnt Horr Most had denied in writing.
Tho names of tho witnesses examined by tho
Grand Jury indorsed on the indictment woro

Mr. Martlno interposed that if Mr. Howe
was moing to produce tho minutes of tho
Graud Jury, he might havo them.
Mr. Hone thanked Mr. Martlno and then
went on to say that liberty of spoeob wus
moro importmant than Herr Most's llborty
and trusted thero would be no Oomstockian
methods adopted. Most was not a man to run
away. He had simply criticised the hanging
of tho Chicago men and suggested something
to be done in tho Indefinite future. He knew
ho was going to bo arrested and did not run
away. Mr. Howe thought 8500 ball would
bo enough, as Most was only guilty of a mis
demeanor at tho most.
Mr. Martino thought that as Most had but
recently oomo out of prison for a similar of
fense, $2,600 bail would not bo too much.
Judgo Cowing fixed bail at $1,600, and, by
consont. Tuesday noxt, Nov. 22, was fixed for
tho trial, tho day boforo Thanksgiving first
suggested being unacceptable to Mr. Howe,
bocanse it would doprivo some of tho parties
interested of their Thanksgiving dinner. He
said that Most had fifty w itnessos.
Tho speech Most doflvorod in the Sovonth
streot hall on Saturday night was taken down
in German by Patrolmen ltoth and Sechs,
neither knowing that tho other was present.
Tho two reports wero carefully translated,
and woro found to agree as to tho languago
that was used. Theso reports will form the
videnco at tho trial.
Most was given a seat in the prison van
and taken to tho Tombs at tho close of the
proceedings before Judge Cowing. Bat he
was brought back to tho District-Attorney's
offlco and sot at liberty at 1 o'clock, the
District-Attorney aocepting Mrs. Ida Hoff

Daccarat Not Allowed In the Union Clab, and
Mr. Iorlllard U Not In Town.
Tho story printed in this morning Sun that
Piorro Lorillard recently lost $225,000 to
Allen Thorndlko Bico over baccarat in tho
cardroom of the Union Club is regardod as a
myth by olubmon genorally. Mr. Pierro
Lorillard, sr., who is the ono referred to,
Is out of town. Ho loft two weoks
ago on ft trip to Florida, and tho
West Indies, intending to remain away sev
eral months. His son, Piorro Lorillard, jr.,
was seen this morning by a World reporter
at tho tobacco factory in Jersey City, and
denied the story, and said there was abso
lutely no basis for it.
Mr. H. W. T. Mali, a prominent member of
the Union Club and a member of tho House
Committee, made this statement :
" The story is ridiculous. Baccarat is never
played at tho Union Club. I am there so
frequently that I could not fall to hear of it
if it were so. Besides, baccarat is forbidden
by the rulos. Tho only games allowed are
whist, euohro, all fours, ecarto, cribbago,
besiquo, billiards, chess, checkors and
backgammon. No betting for over 85 a
point is allowed except in whist, whero $20 a
gamo Is the limit. I say again the story is
untrue, and I never heard a hint of it until
this morning. If it could bo true both gen
tlemen would bo expelled from tho club."
Other well-known members of tho club,
among thorn Mr. William E. Strong, Mr.
James II. Beekman, Mr. H. W. Btbhy and
Mr, B. F, Lee wero seen and all repudiated
tho story as absurdly untrue. They
never heard even a hint of tho matter
until it was printed this morning.
Mr. Bice himself said tho story was non
sense, "There is not a word of truth in it,"
ho said, good bumoredly.

The reasons for this are that the largo milengo
of railroads built this year is not expocted to

of stringency In the monoy market. Tight
money would provont tho placing of con

by Anthony Comstoek, agent of tho Society
for tho Supression of Vico.
Mrs. Catherino Flynn, tho mother of the
lad, said this morning that sho did not know
whether sho would prosecute Comstook or
not. Uo had not maimed tho boy, but had
bruised him considerably. If his big
brother had been thoro, sho remarked, there
would bo no necessity for resort to tho
law or courts, for the man who assaulted
Johnny would have roceived what ho gave in
measure to suit tho dlfferenco in thoir ago
and size. Mrs. Flynn said that sho would
consult a brother-in-law this oyoning, and
her action in tho matter of tho prosecution
of Comstoek would be entirely controlled by
tho result of that conference.
