trial before Judge Koalky on a charge
of murdering her husband on Octobers last,
took tho witness stnnd again yesterday
afternoon to contradict the statements
made by witnesses brought In hy Assistant
District Attorney Moss on the rebuttal.

Inwvcr. Abraham Levy, said' "Now, Oene

Mm. Florence M. Myer, the widow i
of Philip V. Myers, n linen Importer
who died In If 0. brought suit yester
day ngalnst Walter M. Chandler, u law
yer, at tiO Wall street, who is a cam
paign speaker nnd writer and lecturer
on religious subjects. Mrs. Myers alien
to cancel assignments she made to Mr.
Chandler of her Interest in her hus
band's estate, and for nn accounting.
Mrs. Myers alleges that Jiibt before
her husband's death she went to Mr.
Chandler's office at his request and he
told her he had been Informed that she
had reglgstercd at a hotel In New York
with her husband before she wns mar
ried to him. S-he alleges that he told
her he would Itccp such knowledge u j
secret If she gave him charge of her
husband's estate. These statements so
unnerved and frightened her that she
consented, she said.
Mrr. Myers alleges that her hus
band's property consisted nf the assets
of his lace business, exceeding $30,000;
more than $22,000 of Insurance, $75,000
of mortgages, a promissory note for
$20,000 and $10,000 of other personal
property. In addition to real estate.
Her husband left no will nnd she was
entitled to one-third, the rest of the
estate going to her step-daughter,
Amelia C. Kosenfeld. and her step-son,
Mrs. Myers alleges that the lawyer
Induced her to nsslgn her entire share
In the estate to him, by threatening
to reveal the Information' he had. and
represented that there would be noth
ing left In the estate for her anyhow
but her commissions. She nltcges thnt
he said that If she didn't make the ab
solute assignment he would make her
a "washlady In Sing Sing." She says
he got her to sign a certain statement
In which she said that sh. had re
ceived $2D,000. when she had received
only $ri,0S0, nnd that when he got her
share he wound up the estnte by agree
ment with the other heirs, and they
nald him $5,000. Mrs. Myers said that
after she learned that she had been
deceived she consulted other attorneys.
nnd as a result Mr. handler pain her
$10,000 more, but that he got $16,000
more than nil the money she received.
Mr. Chandler saH last night that the
$1B.000 was paid over two years ago, at
which time Mrs. Myers gave him a
general release through the attorneys
representing her then. He said that
the allegations of the complaint are all
false, and that the suit Is brought after
two years to enable another lawyer to
gel revenge. He said that the suit will
never be tried, because the general re
leases signed by Mrs. Myers, Indlvldutflly
and as administratrix, form a complete
defence and that ho holds cancelled
checks as proof of the $29,000 payments.
Whatever Infurmatlon he got about
Mr?. Myers came from her voluntarily.
Mr. Chandler said, and he made no
threat to use it In any way.

tiled their claims with the Special Master end made
proof of the same. At the tame time It ua-stated
that. If he preferred, any creditor might proio his
claim In the court, state or federal. Instead o
fcefore the Master, end that a transcript of Judg
ment would be accepted as sufficient proof ot tli
claim. The Special Master advertised for cUlms
stating that they must be Bled before January IV

the Circuit Court, claims were received as late as
March 1st, 1810. Although more than two tears

claims. Itappears In numerous Instances attorneys
for creditors failed to tile such claims, owing to
their own Ignorance or carelessness. In order
