Up to this point everything had gone
smoothly, but It remained for Hepresenta
tlve Hardwlck of Georgia, a Democrat,
who concluded the Administration's side
of the debate on the cloture rule, to make
a personal attack upon the Speaker.
"I would remind the distinguished

that when the rules of the House were,
adopted In the last Congress Mr. Clark I
had himself supported a resolution limit-1

same sort of a rule as the Houie was
called upon to-day to consider.
At this point, the period of debate hav
ing been exhausted, Representative Henry,
proponent of the rule, moved the previous
question and the first roll call was or
dered. Tho roll had progressed through lees
than a hundred names before It became
evident that It was deetlned to win. The

KERNOCHAN TOLD TO
QUIT LIFE OF LUXURY
Court Denies Plea for $12,000
Allowance From Insane
JIUST GIVE UP TEN CLUBS
Justice Cohalan Criticises His
'Jfusical Talent' nntPChaiiccs
to Marry Well.'
Supreme Court Justice Cohnlar denied
yesterday the application of Marshall R,
Kcrtiochan, cousin of Special Sessions
Judge Frederic ICernochan, for an allow
ance of 112,000 a year from the estate of
nn Insane aunt. His -opinion sharply
criticised Kemochan, who Is a member of
twelve clubs, and whose mother Is
wealthy,- for seeking to live luxuriously
on an allowance from the estate of an
aunt who lost her reason eight years
after he was born and whom he has seen
Justice Cohalan also made pointed com
ments on the recommendation of Charles
K. l.ydecker, the referee, who heard Ker
nochan's application and suggested nn
allowance of JS.000 to enable Kern'ochan
to pursue musical studies and to warrant
him In making a proposal of marriage to
a young woman who Kernochnn testified
he thought would accept him.
As a result of the court's ruling Ker-1
nochan will not only have to stay single.
,but resign from ten of his twelve clubs '
and give up his automobile, unless he gets
llnanelnl aid from some other source than
the estnte of his lnsano aunt.
Kemochan lives at 1 Hast Ktghty
eighth street, with his mother. Mrs. Will
iam Pollock, who maintains a town house
In New York and nn elaborate country
place at Plttstleld. Mass.
Aunt's Income aiOO.OdO.
Ills Insane aunt Is Miss Mario Mar
shall, who was declared Incompetent
twenty-five years ngo and Is now In the
care of nurses In Virginia. She has an
estate of about J2.500.000, which yields
an Income of more than IIOU.OOO a year.
In rejecting the report of Referee
Lydecker Justice Cohalan said that the
referee was not iipMnted to determine
how much Income should be paid Ker
nochau from Miss Marshall's estate, but
merely to take testimony and report to
the court. Justice Cohalan said:
"The recommendation of the referee In
no sense meets tho approval of the court.
Tho application Is extraordinary. It
shows a young man 32 years of ago
who has lived an idle and luxurious life,
now attempting, on the plea that he de
sires to further a taste for iiiukIc. to In
crease his Income by obtaining an allow
anc out of his aunt's estate of ) 12,000 a
"The petitioner, an only eon, was bum
Into and Js no- surrounded by large
wealth. Ills mother's estate was summar
ised on January 1, 1S13. at $1, J S 1. and
the annual Income Is I3,!00. In her city
home she has twelve servants employed
and In her country home there are twenty
five. "Mis. Martha M. Wysong, another of
his nunts. 67 ears of age, and without
Issue. Is possesiNsl of an estate of 12,125,
00n, producing un Income of IS1.000. Umiii
attaining his majority the petitioner re
ceived H01, 000 from the estate of his
father. A part of the money wns lost In
speculation, but a sift of 150.0U0 fiom his
mother so made up the loss that his estate
Is now practically Intact. He contributed
nothing to the household expenses and
gets an Income of $3,750 a year,"
fieta Ml tie Kr.ini Mosle,
Justice Cohalan slid that In li(i Ker
nochnn took up the study of musical com
position both hern nnd In Germany. Ills
average Income from this source has not
been over J30 a year and he spent $175
advertising Ids songs and a cantata. He
belongs to the Union. Knlrkerlnicker,
llrook, Itaciuet and Tennis Oroller. Play
ers, Tuxedo, Lenox. Plttstleld Country,
MncKtirlUge, Tennis and Automobile chilis.
He has an automobile and pas his chjuf-,
feur 9 1 00 n month. He has followed no
other occupation than his dliuislon fnrj
music. The court then says ; i
"In brief, this healthy and uthbdle
young man, from nn environment of lux
ury, wealth and position, decides that since
neither his mother nor his mini. Mis.
Wsong, will give him an allowanc, this
court should deciee him cine from the
estate of his incompetent mint, a woman
who became insane eight years after his
birth and whom he has never seen but
once, and that tlmn eight years ngo,
"He seeks to persuade the court to this
conclusion by tho statement that If the
allownnco Is nut granted he will ho com
pelled to resign from all his clubs but
the. Union and tlm Knickerbocker: will
be restricted in the entertainment of his !
friends ; his forms of recreation will not
be si. expensive as at the present time,
and he will b compelled to abandon his
automobile. Another reason Is thnt with
it there will be reasonable prospect of his
The court referred to the testimony of
Kemochan before tho referee to the effect
that If he gels llni allowance ho will f,el
warranted In proposing marriage to some
one, and baa reason to believe that he
will be uceejited.
Justice Cohalan then said that If Miss
Marshall ever i reavers her sanity she
will be entitled to have her estate tumid
over to her undiminished, and that It Is I
possible mat she may outlive both of her
sisters and her nephew,
"The Incompetent In under no duty to
maintain the petitioner In his 'social
standing' or to cnahlo him to reach a
'station In life,"' said the court, "lie Is of
full age, of ripe experience, sound mind,
and no disability,
"If the petitioner has musical talent
and the returns do not require this con
clusion his mother and his competent
aunt, who have his welfare ut heart, and
must know of his talent and desiie, are
the Immediate nnd proper persons tit
whom lo appeal for largess and sympathy.
"I do not deem the Increase of musical
renown as tho substantial object of this
application. At most It Is a pretext for
the real reason, which Is that this young
man may have additional means tn main
tain or accentuate the luxurious living tn
which he considers that he Is entitled, and
which has ever been his by environment."
