statement that 88 Bar ent. of the

sura to which a New York society man is
entitled for living expenses before ho is com
pelled to ay any of hts debts was settled
yesterday. Charles J. Osborn when he died
bequeathed Soot),1 00 in trust, the income to
be paid to his son Howell during the bene
ficiary's lifetime. Howell Osborn spent a
liberal amount lavishly and rail up a huge
bill besides, all of which his father paid.
Since his father's death he has maintained
his record handsomely. The income oi the
fund is j::.' annually, but tic., has been
far from sutllcient to meet the young man's

So be borrowed money ot Wil lam L. Stow
which he could not tor at lenst did not) re
pay. Stow secured t wo judgments against
Osborn to the amount ot nearly $50,000. but
they were returned from the sheriff's oftTee
unsatisrhsl. Osborn, who went to Europe
two or tlinsj years ago w ith Fay Templeton,
the comic oera singer und former wife of a
negro nnns'rel, is still abroad, and the sher

standing iu his name iu this city. Stow
therefore, brought suit against the trustees.

Howell Osborn was an Only child, and
during his father's lifetime constantly over
