Is the question nskeii by attorneys when

Origin of the Clingman Cut.
At the same time one Clingman went
Into Judge Stein's court and obtained an
other order restraining ti e directory from
closing tne gates on Sunday, on the plea
that the park was for the people ami the
legislature had no right to give anytwdy
the privilege of closing it on that day.
This point referred only to the park the
grounds. Another decision from the
United States court with Chief Justice
Fuller presiding dissolved the Sabbartarian
injunction, and the gates were thrown open
on Sunday, with the result that there were
no big crowds in attendance, and that open
pates, compared with the great promises,
were practically a failure.
Directory Gets Intii Trouble.
So the directory closed the gates, and
presto! was in a peck of tro ble. For the
Clingman injunction whs still in force nr. i
Judge Stein fined several fcf the ciirectoty
for contempt of court. I.eg-1 proceedings
were then begun to dissolve the Clingman
injunction and au application for dissolu
tion was n.ade before J-i.i;,-c Goggiu.
He refused to hear arguments unless two
other judges were obtained to sit "en
branc"with him. After some difficulty
they were obtained .ludg. s Hrentano and
Dunne consenting to sit, and one of them
unpacking his gripsack, nuviug prepared
to go away on a vacation.
, An Exciting Scene In Court.
Yesterday the decision was to be made,
and the rumor was abroad t hat it would
close the fair. The court room was fi-11 of
attorneys and they had ail the entertain
ment they wanted. For thry saw a judge
sitting en banc with two others obtained
at his own request delilerately kick
(metaphorically) his essociates off the
bench and enter an order that
will defeat the whole object
of the litigation. l5ie.inno and Dunne
had agreed tuat t he fair should lie closed
and had wri'.ten an opinion. Goggin'g
first words on opening court were to that
effect, "but," he added, "1 haveu't any. It
is needless to say that their opinions
are against me. We don't agree."
The lireiitaiin-Dtiiiiie Decision Uent.
Goggiu was inclined at first not to hear
the opinion prepared by Hrentano and
Dunne, but he permitted it to be read, and
then delivered a rambling discourse the
point of winch was that Knglish common
law was a bad code for these modern times.
To set aside tne injunction, he said, would
cause the people of this state to lose confi
dence in the judiciary. Ex-Judge Moran,
counsel for the fuir, and the other lawyers
present stood aghast at the remarkable
performance. They all declared Goggiu's 1
action undignified and disgraceful.
l'roioses to Do the Wagging?
Then Moruu rose and gave the history of
the connection with the case of Judges
iirentano uu". Dunne, as it is given in the
foregoing, and added: "Now, I under
stand that the judge of this court says:
'Gentlemen, you are associated with me.
If you have agreed with me, all right; if
not, all wrong. In other words, the tail of
the court proposes to wag the dog." Judge
Goggin remarked that he didu't think he
was the tail of the court, but at any rate
he would do all the wagging. Then Judge
Moran begged the court not to set such a
disgraceful and discourteous example by
overriding the majority of the cour..
Judge Goggin merely remarked that the
case would be continued for sixty days.
GETS RID OF HIS ASSOCIATES.
Judge Goggin 11a Another Surprise for
When Walker told the judge that he
bad no right to continue the case he re
plied: "But I propose to defeat you, M
Walker." "How, pray tell me, without
judicial error?" "By continuing the case
until the suo.v flies."
And shortly after there was a bigger
ensation yet. Walker said: "This case
has been heard and decided. Your honor
hs announci 1 an opinion, but a majority
is against you."
"I am going to defeat the other judges
of this court."
"By what authority? By judicial an
arcbyf" "That's the only way I can beat you, Mr.
The exposition attorneys then secured
leave to enter a motion to set aside the
judgment of the court, And the three
judges retired to Judge Brentano's cham
bers where they held a conference, and tl
end thereof was the biggest surprise of ti.e
day. When the judges again took their
places on the bench Judge Dunne an
nounced thai Judge Goggin no longer de
sired the conference of himself and Judge
Drentano, and they would therefore retire.
Two associates, constituting a majority of
judges, bad rendered a decision which was

PITIFUL SCENE AT BROOKLYN.
Itaby'a Funeral at Which list Mother
Coul 1 Not Attend.
XewYokr, Sept. 1. A pitiful funeral,
attended by on.; grief-stricken mourner,
started from the Brooklyn coroner's office.
Even that mourner, a fond mother, could
not attend the iiilerment, but wns obliged
to b:d her last farewell to the body of her
baby boy at the coroner's door a.s it was
started away to the potter's field. Then
worn out with physical and mental Buffer
ing she sank moaning on the stone steps
of the office. Tie mother was Mrs. Mary
Smith, of 15 Scj am ore street. Her hus
band was comm. tted to the penitentiary a
year ago, and he has still a year aud a half
The baby, 7 months old, had been ill for
weeks, but the mother hud been unable to
employ a physician, aud it gradually sank
till it was little else than skin and bones.
Its sufferings finally became so great that
the mother coul 1 no longer wait for relief
and she wrappec the slender body in bar
. tattered shawl and started for the charities
j commissioners' office, where she hoped to
, get medical aid. The hour for opening
! the office had net arrived and the woman
seateu nerseu on the steps in the chill
morning air tt await the arrival of the
Hut a greater thnn any charities com
missioner arrived first and the sufferings
of the baby can e to an end. Theu the
mother was toli: she had better take the
child to the coroner's office, as she had no
menus of del raj mg the funeral expenses.
On again she trudged with the corpse in
her arms, the po r garment scarcely cover
ing it from tiie :-ude gaze of the passers
by. Finally, worn out by a walk of mi In.
she reached her destination and stated her
wish. Sue was told that the body must
first go to the morgue, but her grief broke
out afresh at tht thought aud she refused
to allow it.
Then a good Samaritan appeared in the
person of County Undertaker Patrick Fo
ran, who conseu ed to bury the child with
out taking it to 'he morgue, although it
was done at his own expense. After the
lid of the pine coffin had been screwed
down the mother- bugged for another look
at her little one, and the good-natured un
dertaker unscrewed the top to allow her
to kiss its face a,;ain.
Made No Ruah for Their Money.
New York, Sept. 1. Time notices of the
intended withdrawals of money in excess
of small amounts from savings banks have
expired in a half dozen of the local savings

and gratification. Seven banks were vis
ited by a reporter, of which four had re
quired only thirty days' notice a mont'i
ago. Their i ;ports, which were singularly
uniform, showec. that only 10 per cent, of
the notices hnd been acted on.

AWFUL ACCIDENT ON THE RAIL.
Fourteen l'enona Killed and the Came

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Sept. 1. A terrible
accident has occurred on the Boston and

Of the wounded, most suffered sprains,
but it is feare.l that several will die. The
cars were smashed to kindling wood by
the plunge of twenty feet to the bed of the

dreds were on the scene, and the si ht was
a fearful one. The mangled bodies visible

were busy relieving the sufferers.
