AGAIN FACES JURY
Charged With tho Greatest
Swindle of entury.
PUBLIC CURIOSITY IS GREAT.
Palaic do Justice In Pais Besieged by
Eager and Morbid Crowd to Hear
Testimony in One of the Most Cele.
brated Cases Known.
Paris, Augusst 10.-The . notorious
Hiuzmbert family today faced t judge
and jury to met the charge of having
porpetiatod what former Premier Wal
deck-losseau described as "the great
est swindlo of the century." Investi
gating Magistrate Leydet in May decid
ed to commit Therese - Humbert, her
husban.d Frederic, and her brother, for
trial on the charges of forgery, the
use of forged documents and swindling.
He dismitod the cases against iEve
Humbert (Therese's daughter) and
Marie d'Aurignac (her sistee).
Publi! ctiriosity which has followed
the fortunes of the family since the
days of its social brilliance is again
intenseiy wrought up, the chief inter
est centering in "La Grande Therese,"
who has promised to produce at this
trial the mystorious American million
aires, the brothers Crawford, on whom
he based tier story of an inheritance
of $20,000,000, which she put forwaird
as the security for the loans she ob
tainod, amounting to about $10,000,000.
Curious Crowds Assmeble.
The Pl'ais do Justice was early this
morning surrounded by large crowds
eager to gain admittance to the court
roon. A heavy force of municipal
guards preiserved order. Mlany excur
SGons came from distant points, the
railroads treating the trial as they
would a national holiday. One of the
excursions eame from Molun which
was the constituent that larederie
Humbert represonted in the chamber
of dopudes and where was located the
famous lumbert ,chateau, with its
parks, yachts and a fleet of gondolas.
Of the tbousands who sought admission
only a few hundred of the highly fa
vorod gained an entrance to the court.
Coquelin. the celebrated actor. was
among the throng of artists, actors and
authors seeki-ng admission and when
he was turned back he remarked that
the trial nould be "one of the greatest
dramas ever enacted." The scene
within the courtroom recalled the tense
days of the Dreyfus and Zola trials.
The andience included diplomats,
aoadomlcinns and menibers of the Le
gion of Honor. 'Many ladies were pres.
ant, their rich gray gowns contrasting
with the gravity of their surrou-ndings.
Manyof the ladies carried dainty
luncheon bags, evidently expecting to
spend the day in court.
To the right of the judges was the
prisoneo's dock, raised four feet above
the level of the room and bringing out
the faces of the prisoners against the
dark back-ground. They were riought
in from the prison of tihe concier
gerie, through a subterranean passage
leading to the couirt room.
