Host was ready for broakfast.
Matron Wobb paid some regard to tho de
sires of tho former member of tho German
Reichstag, and daintily propared a sirloin
steak, poached eggs, rolls and hot coffoo for
him. Most ate his meal with a rolish. and
enjoyed it much moro than he did tho
noonday repast of cold Irish stow and beer
in a " growler" from which ho was so rudely
When askod by his keeper how ho had
passed tho night, Most smiled one of his
most oxpansivo smiles, shrugged his shoul
ders and said :
" Aswoll as might bo expected," pointing
significantly to tho rough wooden bench
Mhlch had been his couch. " My arrest and
Imprisonment aro a gToat outrage," ho con
tinued, " and aro a travesty on boasted

ties to prove that I over advised any person
to resort to physical forco or to use dynamite
or other explosives. When they woro used
by others I aid not weep or moan."
Despite the unsatisfactory pine-board bed.
Borr Most rested well, and during the night
watches was obsorved to bo sleeping soundly.
His bushy hair stood up like quills upon the
fretful poroupinawhon ho awoke,bnt ho said
nothing about comb or brush. He expressed
no solicitude for water to bathe in his chief
desiro being a drink to cool his dry and
Shortly aftor 10 o'clock ho was escortod up
the spiral stairway which leads up from the
prison direct to Inspector Byrnes's cosy but
highly suggestive quarters, and was prepared
for his journoy to tho Court-House. Ho

Was making ft groat effort to appear cool.
Inspector Byrnes and Detective Crowley

with Most, the arch Anarchist, smoking one
of tho Inspector's good cigars. They rodo

Tho party reached Part I. of tho Court of
General Sessions at 10.65. Most's chubby
form was encased In a black coat and vest
and drab trousers, which fitted him as closely
US tho skin of a bologna sausago.
Ah ho sat in court his littlo gray eyes peered
out from under Mb heavy brows In a sly way,
though there was an uneasy movement of
them about tho room- Oddly enough. New
York's arch Anarchist's hatred for the " cop
' itallstio press " does not doter him from en
couraging the publication of newspapors by
Jiurchasing them, and whilo his eyes shifted
rom face to faco he protended to bo reading
a copy of The Would.
A tall, lean woman, with truly Anarohistlo
hair, not blood red, but of a fiery hue, visited
the District-Attorney's offlco early and stated
that she had come to offor bail for Herr Most,
Bho was directed to the court-room and sat
within tho compartment for women. Bho
wore a handsome Paisley shawl and stated to
a reporter that she was Ida Hoffman and lived
nt 62 East Seventh street, which houso Bho
owned. It was worth $20,000 and bore a
mortgage for $11,000. Sho is an Anarchist.
Herr Most, aftor his entrance, set up a
desporato flirtation with tho woman, ogling
her in truly Anarohistlo fashion.
William F. Howe, counsol for Most, put m
his appearance at 11 o'clook. Ho woro a
flaming red " four-in-hand " neck-scarf and
further showed what a terrible Anarchist ho
was by taking notes with a red lead-pencil.
Despito tho resolute dofense of tho entrance
door by the oourt officers, who demandod a
i subpoena or summons from every applicant
for admission, tho room was crowded
with people. Hundreds had formed
thomselves into a silent reception
commltteo to Most on the sidowalk in
Chambers street, hut only a few dozoni
could gain admission to tho cramped court
room, and the fortunate ones stared at the
Anarchist with all their eyes. Commodore
Gerry was one of them.
Judge Cowing took his soat at 11.15, and tho
Court Decame as quiet as the grave instantly.
A long line of minor offenders wero callod to
the bar as a prelud to MoBt's case, and while
this was going on a reporter interviewed
She said: "My husband is Dr. Julius
Hoffman, a physician of large practice We
believo in anarchism, and that it is our duty
to come forward and assist a brother Anarch

When, at U.i0, District-Attorney Martino, en.

Clerk Hall read tho Indictment to Most, con
cluding with ' ' Are you guilty or not guilty ?"
Counsellor Howe interposed in bohalf of
Most and addressed Judgo Cowing j "I am
glad this caso comes before yon, for I know
mt you will not be influenced by publio
clamor, and as for tho District-Attorney, with
the emphatio ooraplimont tondorcd to him
almost unanimously by the peoplo lost week,
II am sure that he will be fair."
Mr. Howe deolarod that ever since the Obi
cago elocutions the newswapers had been
clamoring for the blood of tho Anarchists or
those who sympathized with them. Thopeo
1 pie had been excited by tho press.
1 ..But Most was surrounded by the protec
tion of the Constitution. The indictment
' CtYonocluoto the evidence on which it was
found, and ho had no means of knowing
whnt chargo was mado against him unless it
wero based on the statement of a re
porter for TnK World that he had
taken a stenographic report of the utterances
of Most at Saturday's meeting. But that
statement Herr Most had donlcd in writing.
Tho names of tho witnesses examined by tho
Grand Jury indorsed on the indictment wero
thoso of Policemen Roth and Sochs.
Mr. Martino interposed that if Mr. Howo
wns moving to proauco tho minutes of tho
Grand Jury, ho might have them.
Mr. Howo thanked Mr. Martino and then
went on to say that liberty of snocoh wns
moro importraant than Herr Most's liberty
and trusted there would bo no Comstockiau
methods adopted. Most wns not a man to run
away. Ho had simply criticised tho hanging
of the Chicago men and suggested something
to bo done in tho indefinite future Ho knew
ho was coin; to bo arrested and did not run
away. Air. ilowo thought $500 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 como out of prison for a similar of
fenso, $2,600 bail would not bo too much.
Judge Cowing fixed ball at $1,500, and, by
conBont. Tuesday next, Nov. 22, was fixed for
the trial, the day b&foro Thanksgiving first
suggested being unacceptable to Mr. Howo,
bocauso it would deprive somo of tho parties
interested of their Thanksgiving dinner. Ho
said that Most had fifty witnesses.
Tho speech Most delivered in tho Seventh
street hall on Saturday night was taken down
in Gorman by Patrolmen Roth and Sochs,
noither knowing that the other was present.
Tho two reports wero carefully translated,
and were found to agree as to tho language
that was used. Thoso reports Vi ill form tho
vldcnco at the trial.
Most was given a wot in the prison von
and taken to tho Tombs at tho closo of tho
proceedings before Judgo Cowing. But ho
was brought back to the District-Attornoy's
offlco and set at liberty at 1 o'clock, tho
Distrlct-Attornoy accepting Mrs. Ida Hoff
mnn as bondsman for him.
Tho husband of Mrs. Hoffman. Dr. Julius
Hoffman, is tho man who figured conspicu
ously throe months ago as a witness in tho
trial of Joseph Bornheimer, tho painter,
who was charged by Walking Dclo
goto Charles Schalk with assault with
intont to kill. Schnlk called at tho homo of
Bernheimer's father and insisted that ho
should discharge a non-union man in his em
ploy. Words followed and Schalk, it is
alleged, insulted Mrs. Bernheimer, where
upon her son gave Schalk a pair of black
On tho trial before Justices Kilbroth,
O'Roilly and Ford, in tho Spocial Sessions
Court, Dr. Hoffman testified that ho attended
Schalk and that ho was covered with serious
wounds. Schalk was in court swathed in
bandages. Lawyor Friend, who was defend
ing Bernheimer, asked Dr. Hoffman if ho be
lieved in tho Bible.
Hoffman replied scornfully in the negative,
whereat Friend nskod the Court to order tho
removal of Schalk's bandages. Dr. Hoffman
was compelled to removo tho rags himself.
No bruisos woro apparent. Bernheimer was

Baccarat Not Allowed In the TJnI.n Clnb, and
Mr. Lorillard U Not In Town.
The story printed in this morning Bun that
Piorre Lorillard recently lost $225,000 to
Allen Thorndiko Rico over baocarat in the
cardrbom of Ihe Union Club is regarded as a
myth by clubmen generally. Mr". Pierre
Lorillard, sr., who is tho one referred to,
Is out of town. Ho left two weeks
ago on a trip to Florida, and the
WeBt Indies, Intending to remain away sev
eral months. His eon, Pierre Lorillard, jr.,
was Been this morning by a Would reporter
at tho tobacco factory in Jersey City, and
denied tho story, and said there was abso
lutely no basis for it.
Mr. H."V. T. Mall, a prominent member of
tho Union Club and a member of tho House
Cotnmittco, modo this statement :
" The story is ridiculous. Baccarat la never
played at tho Union Club. I am there so
frequently that I oould not fail to hear of it
if it wero so. Besides, baocarat is forbidden
by the rules. Tho only games' allowed are
wnist, euchre, all fours, ocarte, cribbago,
besique, billiards, chess, checkers and
backgammon. No betting for over 85 a
point is allowed except in whist, where $20 a
gamo is the limit. I say again tho story is
untrue, and I never heard a hint of it until
this morning. If it could be true both gen
tlemen would be expelled from the club."
Other well-known members of the club,
among them Mr. William E. Strong, Mr.
James H. Bookman, Mr. H. W. Bibby and
Mr. B. F. Loe woro seen and all repudiated
tho Btory as absurdly untrue. They
never heard even a hint of tho matter
until it was printed this morning.
Mr. Rico himself said the story was non
sense. " Thero is not a word of truth in it,"
ho said, good humoredly.

Contemplated Shut-Down of All the Besse

(SFItCIlL TO THE WOBLD.
FiTTsnTjBO, Nov. 18. A general shut-down
of tho Bessemer steel rail business of tho en
tire country- is contemplated. The proba
bility is that theso mills will close Doo. 1.
Tho reasons for this are that tho large mileage
of railroads built this year is not expoctod to
be repeated next year on account of tho talk
of stringency in the money market. Tight
money would prevent tho placing of con
tracts and result in depressing prices, which
have already reached too low a point con.
sistcnt with tho price of iron and labor.
OonBultations havo boon held by the repre
sentatives of tho twelvo Bossomor rail works
in different parts of tho country, and tho
proposed action now under consideration
will bo harmonious. It is almost certain that
tho old liessemor Association will be

disbands they shall bo distributed by a
special committee appointed by the League.
The Leaguo men arguod that the law should
stand without ehango. This the Brother
