The trial of the Anna Dickinson case
was transferred yesterday from the
mnln to the superior court room of the
county court house, which was crowded
all day by spectators. After court con
vened Miss Susan E. Dickinson was re
called for further cross examination.
She described how she had raised
money on some of Anna's Jewels and
showed the way Anna once clutched
her by the throat. In response to At
torney Hodge's Interrogation she In
sisted that she had done her best to be
absolutely fair to her sister in giving
W. I. Hobbs, of Plttston, who acted
as attorney for Susan E. Dickinson In
1891 was called and identified receipts
for certain property turned over by
Susan to Anna's representative, Mrs.
Akerly. Sir. Hobbs described a lec
ture he heard Anna deliver In the
Broadway theater. New York city, on
Sunday evening, November 3, 1891, on
"Personal Liberty." During the ad
dress she abused and vllllfied ex-Presl-dent
Harrison, Quay, Clarkson, George
Kennan and ex-President Grover Cleve
land. She was exceptionally severe on
the latter, referring to him ns the
"hnngman of Buffalo." The czar of
Russia received words of praise from
her, Sir. Hobbs said, and she declared
that henceforth she would place herself
under his protection. That address he
thought was an indication of insan
ity. IN THE AFTERNOON.
Sirs. George B. Thompson, wife of
one of the defendants, testified to the
cordial relations that existed between
herself and husband and Miss. Anna
Dickinson and tie assistance they ren
dered to Sllss Dickinson when she was
taken to Honesdale.to have an opera
tion performed. In the latter part of
1S89 and early In 1890 she first noticed
a change In Sllss Anna's manner. She
became irritable, treated those who
came In contact with her badly and
seemed to think that the world at large
was set against her. She described In
detail the peculiarities about the plain
tiff that most strongly attracted her
attention. Several times she detected
tho odor of whisky on Sllss Anna's
She was asked by Attorney Hodge If
there was not some 111 feeling between
her and the plaintiff because Sllss Anna
refused to call on one of the guests of
the witness. Sllss Thompson said that
was not true. One time her cousin,
Sllss Hose Elizabeth Cleveland, sister
of ex-President Grover Cleveland, came
to visit her. She did not want Anna to
call on her and did not Invite her. She
tltd Invite Sllss Susan, but did it In
such a way that It might be construed
ai a general Invitation as she did not
want to give offense. Only Sllss Susan
called and she made an excuse for Sllss
Ahna. Sirs. Thompson Is a very bright
woman and Attorney Hodge found It
exceedingly difficult to trip her tip In
hfs cross examination.
narry Bryden and Allen Eggleston,
two of the defendants, were recalled
and testified that thero was a very of
fensive odor In the room of Sllss Anna
the day she was taken to the asylum.
The odor cams from a vessel in the
Sirs. March, one of the attendants
at Danville asylum, said that on the
first night Anna Dickinson was there
witness was putting her to bed when
Anna grabbed her by the throat and
asked her to be her friend. She prom
ised that she would be and Anna re
leased her and kissed her.
George B. Thompson, one of the de
fendants, wns sworn and said that he
Is a real estate agent and in February,
1R91, resided qn Slontgomery street,
West Plttston, In the same house with
tho Dickinson's. His relations with
tho Dickinsons was very cordial and
friendly. This was shown by the ex
change of many gifts. He lived In the
same house with the Dickinsons from
1884 until 1891. They rented their part
of tho house from him as agent for J.
13. Patterson & Co. He collected the
rent paid by Sllss Susan E. Dickinson.
After describing some of Sllss Anna's
peculiar actions and services he ren
dered to her he told of his being re
quested to be present on the day the
plaintiff was taken to the asylum. He
consulted an attorney who told him
that If Dr. Underwood was to be there
the commitment would be regular for
the doctor knew more about commit
ting an Insane person to an asylum
than any attorney in Plttston.
The breaking Into the room occupied
by Anna Dickinson and the subse
quent removal to Danville was de
scribed very minutely by the witness,
flatly contradicting some of the state
ments made by the plaintiff in her tes
timony when on the stand last Tues
day, No undue force was used in the
house or at the railway station. Sir.
Thompson was the last witness exam
Several experts with reference to In
sanity will be called this morning and
the defendants expect to close their
caso before the noon recess. In that
event Sliss Dickinson will be called to
give evidence In rebuttal this after
noon. UNITED STATES COURT.

the train hands saw him attempting to
board the train. It is also alleged that

The action Is to receive a Judgment
note for $800 given by the deceased to
Slary Pulver In 1867 and which has

It up and that it laid in the office of H.

Richard SIcHugh, when the plaintiff

TO BE ATTACKED
J. J. Jcrmyn and llaadlcy Executors
Will Fight It.
CLAIM IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Kx-Clty .Solicitor I. II. Hums Will
Toil it y Mnkc Application to Court
Tor mi Order Dcclnring the New As
sessment Null nnd Vold--Grounds
nn Which the Court Will He Asked
to Set Aside tho Assessment.
As foreshadowed In Tho Tribune the
new city assessment Is to be attacked
in the courts.
Ex-City Solicitor I. H. Burns, repre
senting J, J. Jermyn, will today mako
application for an Injunction restrain
ing the city assessors and board of re
vision nnd appeals from levying and
colleclng taxes In excess of the valua
tion fixed by the trl-ennlal assessment;
also for a decree declaring the new as
sessment null and void.
The assessment Is to be attacked on
constitutional grounds. Sir. Burns ex
pects to be able to prove that the act
of 1893 creating the board of revision
and appeals and defining its powers
and duties Is In conflict with the consti
tution in its general tenor and fla
grantly so in many particulars. One
of these particulars Is that It empow
ers the board of revision and appeals
to make an assessment affecting ono
portion of the city to tho exclusion of
the rest which it Is contended is clear
ly special legislation.
Another allesed defect Is that tho
board of revision and appeals Is an Il
legally constituted body ns tho legisla
ture Is prohibited by the constitution
from legislating to councils or any
other body the power of selecting a
commission such as this, armed as it
Is with legislative power.
The Handley executors aro also pre
paring to fight the new assessment,
which Increased the valuation of the
Handley real estate nearly $100,000.
Should the new assessment be defeated
the city's valuation will be decreased
