The scaled verdict which the jury handed
In on Friday in the suit of Miss Ksther Jacobs
to recover $.10,000 from Henry 11. Bite for
broach of promise of marrlaeo. was opened
yesUrdav niornlnc In Judee Hednwlck's part
of tho Huporlor Court, it awarded $25.0IH) lo
the plaintiff. The announcomotit was crcetod
with applauso from the crowd which hnd
cntherod lu tho court room. Mr, Hire will
Miss Jacobs arrived early, nml took n soat nt
the table faclnc the jury. Her mother nnd
her sister. Mis. Harris, accompanied her.
Miss Jacobs was vory nervous nnd mnde evl
dont efforts to control herself. Her face ns
very palo. Mrs. Harris snt on one side ot her
and clutched her arm In nn agitated way.
while Mrs. Jacobs sat behind them. Lawyer
Charles W. llrooke mado nn nxcoptldn to an
niljecthe which Judco fiediwlek had used In
his clinrtEf. and Judco Sedgwick Immediately
turned to the jury nml said:
"Uentlemen. 1 withdraw mycharnr'terli'n
tlon. and Instruct you that.you alone must de
termine In this as In other similar cae. In
view of this do you wUb to withdraw attain for
further consideration V"
The jurymen said that the adjective In ques
tion had not affected their verdlot, and they
wanted no morotltneforconslderatlon. There
upon, after the usual formalities, the cletk
broko the seal and read the verdict.
"Wo, the jury." the clerk read, "find a vot
dlct for the plaintiff, and fix thu damages at
$25,000." , ,
Immediately there was n joyful commotion
In court. People rapped the floor with their
feet and canes, and there were u raw shouts ot
"Good I Ooodl" Judge Kedgwlck was aston
iihcd, nnd crow red In the fnce as he rapped
sharply and orderod the ofllcers to discover
nnd bring before him the persons who wero
shouting. Tho court officers made a great
show ot hunting for the offendars, but they
found uoone. ....
Miss Jacobs, who had leaned forward, quite
fiale. with an expression ot Intense Intercit on
isr face as the seal ot the verdict wus broken,
sank buck In her chulr when the amount was
announced. Mho did not smile. Indeed, her
face expressed nothing, but for a moment shn
looked its though she would faint. Her mother
nnd sister glanced ut each othor with glnd
faces and nodded. As the applauso in the
room continued Miss Jacobs smiled faintly.
As soon as the room wns still, Lawyer Myer
L. Hire, the defendant's brother, moved for a
new trial. Judge Hedcwlck gavo him tho
usual allowance of sixty days to prepare. The
defendant himself wus not In court Iho
Judge thon announced that un altowunrn of
flvo per cent, on the verdict amount, or Yl.'-'oU.
would bo mndo for the plaintiffs lawyer.
Mr. Urooke was very happy over tho result,
and Mld he expected It. Tho verdict, ho said.
wub not exceptionally large. Clara Campbell
had obtained one of $45,000 In the famous
suit against "Hnby Hunting Arbucklo. and
the verdict had stood the test of un appeal.
Mi's Jacobs refused to sav much to the re
porter, "I urn perfectly sntislled." she said In a low
tone. "1 am surely entitled to every cent of
that amount, and I certainly expected to get
it. That Is all I want to say."
Sire's lawyer. Chauncey 8. Truax. refused to
say anything about the verdict further than
that the papers for an appeal were already in
preparation. . , , ...
It was learned that whon the jury retired on
Friday afternoon they had no dlfllculty In
ngreelng that the verdict should be for the
plaintiff, but they had different Ideas as to tho
amount. Three ballots were taken.
TRIAL OF IIEH.UAS BVSGEIi.
He Stabbed J ohm Illedrlckeon la a Fight oa
Ike North German 1-loyd Dorkn,
Herman Hunger, a middle-aged, stolid-looking
German, wus summoned for trial yester
day morning in the Court of Oyer and Ter
miner. Jersey City, for the murder of John
Dledrlckson on the ovonlng of July 18, at the
North German Lloyd steamship docks In Ho
boken. Bungerwas ii freight handler. Dio
drlckson was assistant foroman. Huncer.
Isaao Wood, and another man had been work
ing all day assorting freight Dledrlckson.
who was under the influence of liquor, found
fault with tha throe men for being together,
and ordered Wood to take a truck.
Hunger remonstrated and said they couldn't
get alone without Wood. Dledrlckson abused
him for Interfering and ended by discharging
both him and Wood. Hunger said he would
go and see the superlntonaentabout It A few
more words passed and Dledrlckson struck
Ilungor twice Diedrlckson.wasarobust.pow
erfnl man. nnd tho blows Btaggerod Hunger.
Tie made no attempt to strike back, bntwalked
as fastUB his rhoumatic legs would permit
toward the huperlntendunt's office. Dledrlck
hon followed and pushed him along, l'lnally
Hunger pulled a knife out ot his pocket nnd
turned on his assailant
"Do you think I'm afraid of that?" shouted
Dledrlckson. rushing In on Hunger and strik
ing hint twlco more. They clinched and Hun
ger plunged the knife Into Diedrickeon's back
about two and n half inches below tho left
shoulder blade. Dledrlckson was taken to St
Mary's Hospital, where ho died tho next day.
Justice Welts presided at the trial, and he
was assisted by Judge HoiTman. Prosecutor
inllold represented thohtato and tho pris
oner was defended by Judge William D. Half
and Lawyer Atkinson. The testimony or the
wltnesse showed the facts to be as stated
above. The defence called several wltnossos
to prove the character of the two men. und the
case dragged along with exasperating slow
ness. The same question had been asked in
a variety of ways, when Justice Werts ex
claimed, with some Impatience. "I wish coun
sel would try and expedite tho case."
"We are getting along as fast as we can,"
answered Judge Daly.
"There seems to be a deliberate effort to
prolong this trial." continued Justice Werts.
If you have no furthor questions to ask of
this witness he may step down."
" I do not understand began Judge Daly.
"It makes no difference whether you do or
not, the case-must go on more expeditiously."
" I would like to know where I stand. I pre
s'ume I know how to conduct a case." euid
" Idon'tknow about that," commented Jus
tice Werts. " At any rate the Court does not
earn to hear any more about It The witness
will step down."
" I would like to ask him another question."
expostulated Judge Daly. ...
rThe witness will step down." repeatod
Justice Werts: " if you want to ask him any
more questions call him again later on."
The witness stepped.down and another one
took his place. The llrst one was not recalled,
but the trial went on more rapidly. Both sides
rested, and then a recesa was taken to permit
Prosecutor Winlleld to appear In the Court of
Chancery and argue the application for ft writ
of error In the Hulllngor case. The Prosecutor
was kept awny so long that Justico Worts,
about 4 o'clock, adjourned the case until this

Xennaa Goldmann Trie (u Put the Antoao
Mint Theory Into Practice.
Anarchist John Most pooh-poohed yesterday
n report that he had been hit with a horse
whip by Emma Goldmann the night before.
Kuima Goldmann was a companion of Alexan
der Herkman, who attempted to murder II. C.
Frick at Pittsburgh. The whipping was said
tohuyo takon place In Odd Fellows' Hall, 08
Forsyth street, when Most was giving a
"Do I look as If I had been horsewhipped V
Most said. "All that there Is In the atoryls
that the woman came Into the hall before I
had begun my lecture. Khe flourished a little
toy whip, with u whistle on tbe ond, and made
a few gesticulations, shaking it at me. Mho
was hustled to the door and thrown out. and I
went on with my lecture. Have her arrested?
Why, certainly not The woman Is crazy for
notoriety. All she wants is to be talked about.
I never montloned her by namo In Frrihnt,
but whon she wrote untruths in Her Anarrliltt,
the organ of the-Autonomists. 1 contradicted
them. I exposed her falsehoods about Herk
man, nnd that is the reason olio was angry,
Hhe Is orar.y. anyhow, and so are tho four or
five people who are with her who are called
Most said that the Autonomists had collected
$300 professedly for the dofencoof Hcrktuau,
but that no lawyer was engaged for him.
Emma aoldmann was found at Touch
Mlko'a boer saloon In I'KJh street bhe looks
ten years older than alio did last summer. All
slio would say was that she had whipped Most
and was glad of it. , ,
The letter of Emma Goldmann, which John
Most oritlolsed in tho tWIhtit, was dated Pitts
burgh nnd puhllshod In . Ilrr Aiiart-ltlut of Dec,
10. It describes ail alleged visit which the
writer paid to the jail where Ilerkinnn was
confined. Most Intimated that the letter wus
u "fake," and nccusod the Goldmann woman
of writing letters to horself and protending
that they came from Herkman. Tho Autono
mists hold that ever; woman may do her own
dynamiting, horsewhipping, and soon, actlutf
on her own private judgment.

Kr. Iiuih, Dec. 10. At 11 o'clock this morn
ing llro was discovered In tho ofllce of tlic City
Treasurer. Michael Foorstel, nnd nnliour later
Edward Foorstel. First Assistant Treasurer
and Bon ot the Treasurer, put n bullet through
his brnln. dying two hours afterward, The
two oents nre very closely conneoted, for
there Is no doubt that the Aro wan started by
the young Assistant Treasurer, and tha nat
ural Inference Is that It wns done to destroy
tho eUdenco ot crime. The day's develop
ments show that there Ytns a big shottuse to
be coord up. The Are was dlscovorod by tho
night wntchmnn, who gave tho alarm, and the
flamos wore subdued before much dnmnce
had been dono. When the firemen ontored
they found the doors of the safe nnd thu vault
In tho City Treasurer's office wide open.
At 8 o'clock Treasurer Foerstcl pnmo down
town. Tho sondld not live nt homo, nnd tho
father know nothing nbout the Mllcldo. Ho
was apparently not greatly concerned nbout
the lire until he rocelved the news of his son's
act. and then In nn Instant he had plncod the
two events together nnd understood and felt
tho full torco ot the blow that had struck him.
Ho asked tho Comptroller when he would bo
rondr to begin nn Investigation ot the ac
counts. " At onco." said the Comptroller, and
the work was begun.
Tho examination will not bo concluded be
foie to-morrow, but when an adjournment
was taken late to-nlghl It was shown that
therowns a deficiency of nt least $03,000 In

caused quite a scnsutlon, tho Trensiiier as

Young Foerstel was charged with the for
gories. buthe was not prosecuted, nnd u cIMI
suit was instituted against tho Treasurer for
the total nmount of tho notes. 'ihe
suits not being pressed, tho clroumstnnen
had almost been forgotten. It was rumored
to daythiitonSattitduy Inst Ttoasurorloors

nccusod him of hnvlug been the author of the

charge, and his father, very much excited and
worried over the trmttor. Is also siitdtolme
given Edward to understand that he had
sufficient proof to justify hint In dispensing
