Norman Hapgoocl, editor, of Collier's
Weekly, by 'Col. William D. Mann,
publisher of Town Topics, the name
of Justice Joseph M. Deuel, 'of the
court of special sessions, was used
strongly by the defense.
James W. Osborne, attorney for the
defendant, announced that he expect
ed to prove that Justiee Deuel was
the agent of Col. Mann, and that
Col. Mann was engaged in blackmail
ing through the -medium of his pub
Col., Mann took the stand. de
nied that Justice Deuel was paid for
editorial or clerical work by Town
Topics, although it had been Deuel's
custom to be in the office of the pub
lication each Tuesday night to look
over the proofs before the paper went
Deuel as Mann's Agent.
I intend to prove," explained Mr.
Osborne to the court, "that Justice
Deuel is not an owner of Town Topics,
right to prove that Deuel, as agenfc
of Col. Mann, and I think I have the
right to prove that Deuel, as aggent
for Mann, was engaged in blackmail-
iEg schemes. Can't a person commit
a blackmail by others?"
I see what you contend," said
Magistrate Whitman, "and will allow
"Now, Col. Mann, was Deuel there
as a nonentity?"
"WJIS his presence felt by you?"
TV hat did he do every Tuesday night?"
"Justice Deuel is a great personal
nnd intimate friend of mine. Ho
used to look over the proofs."
And he gave you advice as to
what was libelous or nearly so?"
Not in ten years has justice Deuel
given me one word of legal advice,"
Col. Mann emphatically declared.

"Fads and Fancies" was the book
of American social celebrities which
came into prominence several months
:ig through the announcement that
some of those who figure in the book
]ai many thousand dollars for the
privilege,* was owned by Justice Deuel,
according to a letter read in court. The
letter was .written by Col. Mann and
was read by the attorney for the de
fense. Incidentally Col. Mann testi
lied that he (Mann) owned only one
share of the stock of Town Topics, and
that either Justice Deuel or Mrs. Deuel
owned thirty shares. "Fads and. Fan-.
ics was printed by the Towtopics
Other letters purporting to show^that
Justice Deuel was interested iri the
success of "Fads and Fancies" were
read for the~ attorney of the defense.
Among them was one alleged to have
been written" by Justice Deuel apod
nddiessed to Mr. Wooster, an agent
for "Fads and Fancies" who was at"
J'aim Beach, Fla. The letter expressod
:t hope that Wooster would meet nice
people in Florida, and continued:
"All of them are like Davy Crock

This does'not mean that the plan to

election in January. Jf at that time
the liberals return a large majority to
the house of commons, then Lord Rose
bery will become prime minister and
iir Henry Campbell-Bannerman will en

Thus Lord Rosebery's premiership,
depends, first, upon a large liberal ma
jority in the house oft commons, and,
second, upon assurances of its adhe
sion to the historic principles of the
liberal party. If the liberal majority
should be so small as to leave the gov

party, outnumbered by the tories, Lord
Kosebery probably would refuse to
head the cabinet, and Sir Henry Camp

should appear inclined to turn his back
