The sensational case of Agnes
Loomig vs. Charles H. Palmer, was
brought to an abrupt end in Common
Pleas court, Tuesday morning.
The action was commenced Feb.
13, lb97. The defendant filed, some
time ago, two demurrers to the pe
tition. These were sustained Tues
day by Judge Kaliler.
In her petition Miss Loomis al
leged that on the sixth of April. 1806,
Mr. Palmer promised to pay her
?10,000 if she would marry him. She
agreed to do so and alleged that a
ceremony was performed at Gaines
ville, Fla. Afterwards she discov
ered, it is alleged, that Mr. Palmer
had a wife living in England.
She claimed that Mr. Palmer had
not paid her the $10,000 and she asked
?5,000 damages for the distress she
had been caused and the humiliation
she had suffered in the estima
tion of her friends, because
of his alleged wrong doing
Mr. Palmer is about 65 years of age.
The plaintiff in the suit is quite a
young woman. Palmer's first wife
is said to be in England at the pres
ent time. She got a divorce from
Palmer several -years ago, but the
attorneys have been informed that
he remarried her in England, after
he had inherited considerable prop
erty. Miss Loomis claimed that
Mr. Palmer met her in Florida
shortly after he returned to Americi
In the first demurrer to the petition
the" defendant held that the failure
of the plaintiff to show a written
contract by which he agreed to pay
$10,000 for marrying him, left her
without a caiibe of action. This the
The claim for $5,000 damages is
settled as Palmer has already paid
the plaintiff $5,875, or $S75 more than
Last Claim Settled.
The case of George T. Rankin, jr.
guardian of Mary B. Rankin, vs. the
Akron, Bedford. & Cleveland Rail
road company, growing out of the
accident on the Silver lake line June
21, 1897, was settled Tuesday by the
payment of $5,000 fo the plaintiff.
She claimed $50,000. This is the last
claim against the company because

The injunction issued in the divorce

Re.nnes, Sept. 12. The judges of the
Dreyfus courrmnxtial signed a formal
recommendation for mercy. Its object
is to eliminate the degradation feature
of the punishment. The recomnrenia
tion will be handed to General Lucas
tor President Loubet.
When M. Labori's secretary informed
Dreyfus of this action, he was greatly
affected and said:
"I still have hopes."
Madame Dreyfus visited her husband
in the prison. She found him as calm
as the day before. The prisoner smoked
a pipe for the first time in many days,
wnieh indicated th.it he was in better
spirits than could be expected.
Pauls Sept. 12. Except for .-light
t-treet disturbances Paris has remained
unexpectedly quiet, but this condition
of affairs ib not likely to continue. A
long, heavy rain, combined with the
fact that the leaders of the opposing
parties were all at Reuues, prevented
any organized demonstration. Then,
too, the general public were delighted
with the verdict as confirming The
Chose JuKee. Now, however, they are
beginning to see the want of logic m
conceding "extenuating circumstances"
to a convicted traitor, a concession
which excites doubt as to the strength
of the case against Dreyfus.
Moiwner, public opinion is being
sobered by reading the comments of the
world at large and by the prospect,
however remote, that the exhibition
will be boycotted, which would mean a
loss of millions to the country.
There is little doubt that the trial ot
the. Derouledists next Monday, at
which it is averted sensational evi
dence will be developed and the reopen
ing of the chamber of deputies will be
tuguals tor fresh troubles. At present
botli parties are taking breath, but the
latent animosities are undiminished.
It is estimated that tho last year's
proceedings have cost the Dreyfus party
at least 1,500,000 francs. They do not
intend to let matters rest, and rumors
are revived of the impending arrest of
General Mereier. He declares that he
does not care wnat happens, being quite
satisfied that lie has done his duty
It is understood alo that President
Loubet opposes such an extreme course
as prosecutinar Mereier or the other gen
erals. He is rather inclined to a con
ciliatory policy, extending even to a
pardon for Dreyfus.
