Court yesterday to vacate the order of arrest
against John E. Forbes committing him to
Ludlow street jail for failure to pay his divorced
wlfo, Rosalie, back allmony.amountlngtoabout
Forbes was married In 188B to Roialls St.
Georgo, a daughter of the late Christopher St.
Geork a banker. Two years later Mrs. Forbes
obtained a decree of divorce on the ground of
adultery, and the Court awarded her what the
husband said ho would pay, $1,000 a year all
mony. He has not paid his wife any part of this.
He was arrested in 1803 for his falloro to pay,
and was paroled In the custody of his counsel,
and an opinion of Justice Ingraham at that time
released htm, leave being given to renew the ac
tion It It was fonnd that Forbes had any means
Forbes was arrested again a week ago, the
first chance, the lawyers say, that they havo
had to get hold of him, as he has remained with
out the jurisdiction of the court. Justice Rus.
ell again paroled him In the custody of his
counsel, but denied a motion to dlsoharge the
order of arrest Issued by Justice Andrews.
Forbes Is now in the custody of his counsel, and
a preliminary objection to the motion for his ro
leaso was made by the counsel for Mrs. Forbes,
tliat as Forbes had never been looked up be
could not be released.
Mr. Cleveland contended that Forbes was
poor, having no property whatever, and that It
would be useless to lock him up where he would
have no chance to make anything. He was bis
mothers only son, said the lawyer, and was
supported by her. Any Incarceration might kill
him, as he Is suffering from consumption. (Doc
tor s certificate I roduccd.i
Lawyer Shlland, who appeared for the wife,
called the attention of tho Court to tho fact
that Justice Ingraham, In his decision, dis
tinctly stated that ha mado no decision as to
future alimony. Forbes had Dover made an
effort to pay his wife anything. Just prior to
the divorce he had oorae Into $100,000 In cash
and a oue-stxth Interest In thirty-nine lots of
some of the most valuable land In the city on
the west side, near Seventy-ninth street. It
was alleged that he Induced his wife to sign
away her Interest just before the divorce suit
was begun. It was shown that both before and
since the former nrnst Forbes had been trot oi
ling In Egypt. Paris, California, the Adiron
dack Lakewood. and Har Harbor, but had re
mained out of tue Jurisdiction until lately. Ho
la now living with his mother In tho Van Cor
lear. at Fifty-fifth street and Seventh avenue,
and has also rc-aied In the Grenoble.
"If he can brave this climate," said the law.
yer. " I think tho atmosphere of Ludlow will
lie nowcirso for him than the Van Corlear."
" ell. 1 do know that liar Harbor Is no place
for consumptives." said the Court.
Mr. Shlland went on to tell the Court thnt
Mrs. Forbes was now 111 and needy, the $10.U00
which she received from her father's estato
having been used for living expenses.
Decision was reserved.

Rosenbaum at the house of Joseph Kox. and
that Rosenbaum told her to go to a lawyer
witn him and tell tue lawyer that Herschkoof

In "A Comedy In Spasms," by "lot" (Fred
erlck A. Stokes Company), we do not find that
there is any great provision of those character
istics whtoh were thought to make "A Yellow
Aster" remarkable. The heroine of this tale,
so far as we are ablo to discover. Is not a "new
woman," possessed of new and shocking
problems. The matters of her experience, and
the sentiments that she expresses, havo been
known In fiction for a long time, and have en
dured without any considerable Interruption.
We should say that tho story was not likely to
be found tha lots agreeable by reason of that
circumstance, though It may very well be that
It Is bound to be a good deal less talked about.
Ths difference Is suggested, rudely butt Cot
ually, tn the old song:
Chief cook and bottle washer.
Captain ot the wallers,
Etand him on hit hesd
And he II peel a bag o' 'uters.
Undoubtedly the expert celobrated In this song
could peel potatoes Just as well standing on his
feet, and the other attitude was merely an ex
cursion of force, calculated to attract attention,
but not necessarily to Improve the potatoes. In
"A Comedy In Spasms" the chief character
loves ono man and marries another. It Is Im
possible to sympathize with her very much.
The manshe loves Is big and young and languid,
and ho goes about with a monkey and a lion's
cub that he has procured tn India. It Is easy
to believe that a person of the heroine's uneasy
Intellectuality would have tired of this luxury
and ornament, supposing she had come Into
possession of lu It was just as well. If she had
only known It, that she married the Ultle Col
onel, who was at leost intellectual enough
to have headaches. Tbe Colonel himself
was uncomfortable, atldo from the provo
cation that bis headaches afforded. It lire
corded of him that he once " blushed with
modest dignity" at the thought that ho was " a
great soul feeling itself cold and naked fur lack
of a phjslqno." Ho wonted to be as big and as
placid and as froo from pains In the head as the
jouth with the moukoy and tho lion's cub.
Paradoxically and naturally enough, tho girl
who did marry the young animal tamer soon
tired of him and ran off with a church organist
It is the old story of all-around discontent. Tho
Idea of It lives famlllarlv and endurlngly tn tho
newspaper advertisements tolling people ho-v
to become fat and how to become lean. It
does not follow that nn idea palls merely
because It has age. Tho old thought.
freshly and well attired, need never doubt
of a welcome, and "A Comedy In Spasms" la
bright and vivacious and readable. We aro
glad that the unrestrained particulars of tho
story end with the elopement brought about by
stress of the fascinations of the church organist-
That the heroine should havo had the moral
fortitude to remain true to the Colonel and the
babies seems to us tq be no more than a reason
able concession to the Colonel and the proprie
ties. Doubtless the heroine suffered, and so
doubtless did the hero; bnt the pnilosopher
knows that it is tbe lot of humanity to suffer,
and he knows, moreover, that the suffering of
these two was nut without Its dcsirablo offsets
aud virtuous and alleviating compensations.
Elizabeth Stuart Phelps's novel, "A Singular
Life " (Houghton, Mlfllln & Co.). Illustrates the
distinction between theology and Christianity.
1 be hero, at the ago of thirty, and after eight
years of special study, falls to satisfy bis ex
onilners at a theologian, but he establishes a re
markably successful church for the people In a
Massachusetts fishing town. It is a story of
high dramatic pitch, and wo dare say that most
readers will And It to bo a very sorrow ful story.
It seems to be a sad thing enough that the young
minister should be brought lu a violent death a
few days after his marriage. To say that a
story Is sad, however, is not to say that It Is not
jus tillable or profitable. Here tho spirit is
made to lift Itself and to shine and glow,
constantly superior to material couditlons.
Mere theology Is satirized here, and so. too. is
the Inferior happiness of mere oblivious Inoper
atlon and content- The death of tho minister
It the outcome of bis battle against the rum
power; he perishes at tbe hands of a morose
saloon keener, who hurls a stone at him as he
emerges with his young wlfo from a great and
enthusiastic church meeting. The characters
and the Incidents of thn story may not seem to
tho realtor to bo always quite reasonable, but
there can be no question that the are vividly
pictured aud described.
