' Trying His Own Case,
Bow lie Got on theJary An Incident In tb. Nw
York Court of Common Pleaa
An incident that is probably without
a parallel in the records of jury trialn in
any country took plaeo at tho February
term of tho court of 'common pleas in
this city. At a trial term before Judge
Daly, Iho suit of Samuel Bluniganl
against Joseph David, an action to re
cover tho value of goods alleged to have
been obtained on false representations,
was called in its proper order on tho
calendar, and counsel for both sides
answering ready tho clerk began the
drawing of a jury in regular form. Rich
ard S. Neweombe, law partner of ex
Judge Cardozo, appeared for tho plain
tiff, and ex-Judgo A. J. Dittenhoefer
for the dofeudant. Tho drawing of tho
jury progressed very rapidly, while ex
JuJge Dittenhoefer was busy looking
over his papers and talking to his law
clerk, with his client David nt hi3 side.
Presently looking up and seeing that
one more juror was to be obtained, and
that tho trial was about to begin, ho
turned to a.sk David a question but lie
was gone. Mr. Neweombe, a few min
utes later, began Ihc opening statement
of tho plaintiff's case before the twelve
jurors, and in tho course of his remarks
attacked David's reputation as a business
man very savagely. The absence of
David annoyed ex-Judge Dittenhoefer
very much, as he desired to have his
client present to listen to the charges,
niadu by tho plaintiff's lawyer, and to
ask him if they were facts. He sent his
1 t.. ..1- . !.... . : I . - i .
Kivt-ciei K oiii. mm me corridors to iook
for David, but he could not be found.
Disgusted and annoyed, he loaned back
in his chair listening to Newcombo's
tirade against the defendant, ami as his
eses ran along the faces of the two tiers
of jurymen, he could scarcely believe his
senses when he recognized his client,
David, seated as one of "the twelve good
men and true" a juror on the trial of
his own ease. David was listening in
the most careful but unmoved surttif
fashion to all that Neweombe was say
ing about him. When Neweombe had
finished bis address he called the first
witness to be sworn; but just then tho
ex-Judge rose and w hispered in his ear:
"Die!;, I don't want to goon with tho
case now. Can't you, as a favor to me,
let it go over to next term?"
Neweombe, with evident earnestness,
replied sharply: "No, I can't do it; tho
case has got to be tried now and bore.
You've been hanging it up and holding
it off long enough, and my. client is im
patient, lie wants his money, and ho
thinks already that I'm not pushing tho
ease. No, ifs got to go on. -
"It can't goon now," replied Ditten
'loefer. "lib, but it can, though, and it must
goon!" was Neweorubo a vehement re
joinder. "I can not agree to any post
ponement at this stage."
"Wi 11, it won't go on," said the ex-
judge with some show of decision in his
voice. Neweomlie looked rather indig
nant, but, beforo he could say anything
more, Dittcnhoefer's mouth was close
ti) to his ear whispering: "Look hero
now, Dick, you had belter not try this
case with this jury."
Neweombe looked startled, and, facing
the ex-judge, said eagerly: "What do
you mean you dou't mean to say you
ve got a friend on tho jury?"
"I do," said tho other, "and I can de
pend on hiin to stand by my client"
Neweombe turned to the jury, and with
his keen black eyes scanned their faces
quickly but closely, and in nn instant
dropped back into his chair, utterly
dumbfounded, as he recognized David
among I hem. There was a quiet laugh
between himself and tho ex-judge, and
then Neweombe asked, "How did ho
gel there?" "I haven't the remost idea,"
replied Diltcnhoefcr. "I was more sur
prised than you are when I saw him
there." The two lawyers held a con
sultation willi Judge Daly, and as a re
soli the jury was dismissed, and tho case
went over for trial at tho March term.
When David came from tho jury-box
to where his lawyer was seated, tho ex
judge asked him why In went into tho
jury-box. "Why? They called my name
and told tho jurors to tako their seats in
the box, and I did so." "Dou't you
inow better than that?" asked tho law
yer. "Do you suppose you could go
there and give judgment in your own
ease?" "1 do," replied David, "because
I guess I know more about it than tho
other jurors do."
Theevphination of the affair, of course,
is that David, who is a rather illiterate
Polish Jew, is a citizen, and is on tho
jurv pane! of the courtof common pleas,
and his name happened to be drawn for
the jury that was to try Blumgard
against David without tho clerk or any
one else noticing that tho names of tlio
men were idilitieal. ' It is, perhaps,
proper to state that at tho March term
trial of the ease David did not get on
the jury, ami Bluniganl recovered judg
ment against him. Htm York Titiw.

Looking down from tho reMrters gal
lery of the house the wielderof tho quill
now and then has an opportunity of
witnessing somo very funny sights, "and
like a man up a tree, makus'inental com
ments and says nothing. It often comes
under his notice that congressmen havo
children, though why they should liaro
is a mystery, and that some of the child
ren are very good, and that they aro
very pretty, and that others are very
ugly and very, very bad, exact counter
parts of their fathers, as it were. 1 .1 this
connection it is not out of plana to say a
word or two of the children that fre
quently grace the floor of the bonne.
To start with, there is Congressman
Belford's boys, a pairof fiery red-headed
cherubs, lbere is no mistake as to
wlmse boysthey are, for their "top-knoU"
pronounce them veritablo chips of the
old block. Thcso lads come up to the
house quito often. They aro each about
two feet high ami very bright. Whether
tho father is present or not they are by
no means disconcerted, and serarublo
over the desks and make themselves at
home, and aro favorites with evon tho
gravest statesmen. "Belford's boys"
are frequently tho envy of tho most
juvenile of the pages, because they aro
such pets. Such members as have red
hair aro most considerate of this pair.
Should a gouty member drop iu some
morning and anchor himself on a bent
pin, "Belford's boys" are held respon
sible. Should another find his ink-well
filled with water, "Belford's boys" are
blainisl, und so it happens that many
boyish pranks of which tho members
are victims are credited to "Belford's
bovs," however innocent they may bo.
Leopold Morse has a pair of bright
littlo lads who often visit tho house.
They are mischievous, as their venerable
papa used to be, perhaps, but more dar
ing. On nioro than ono occasion they
have caused the heart of pater familias
to quake w ith alarm as they approached
and asked some sturdy representative
point blank questions, or when they
ro'led gpitUnms over the floor, or drew
Eiictures with chalk on momljor's desks,
dorse is proud of his heirs, but ho can't
manago them, and tho littlo fellows
make it lively enough for him.
Tho prettiest aud most favored child
ren of tho congressional group aro tho
bright-eyed, fair-haired boy and girl ol
Congressman Skinner. Their pretty
manners and charming prattlo has mado
them popular with everyone connected
