ladles and gentlemen who tamo
early In order to secure good scats dur
ing tho Inquiry ns to Sirs. Kmmons'
sanity. Tho lawyers came, and tho
roll call of the Jury showed that all wero
on hand, but there was no trial. Mrs.
Kmmons came, but her lawyer, Mr.
Oarnett, stated that she was physically
uuablo to fo on thoetant. hho had
tnltcn some medicine, he said, pre
scribed by her physician, and It had
made bcr ill. It was only upon receipt
of a mcssagei from htm that Mrs. Km
mons came to court at all to day, ris
ing from a sick bed ns she did to tlo so.
"On this ground," said Mr. Oarnett,
"and on tho ground that Mrs. Kmmons
docs not wish to testify, as It were,
ngnlnst 1'rofessor I'mmons while his
mother Is at tho point of death, I
therefore ask that the case bo continued
until ono week from today." Mr.
Kent said that he must object to nny
continuance whatever on the ground
that the defendant did not wish to
testify because Professor I'mmons'
mother was on the point of death. Ills
client, ho said, had gone to lloston to
seo his mother, but would be here to
day to attend the proceedings. If ho
was willing to go ahead despite his
mother's Illness, it was hardly reason
able for Mrs. Kmmons to object.
On the other hand, however, Mr.
Kent tontlnued, there could bo uo ob
jection to n continuance if the lady
was physically uuablo lo nppeir, but
I be lev. ns no necessity for its being
longer than until to-morrow, when, It
Mrs. Kmmons wnt still 111, Ihu case

TI1C PEOPLE WITH THEM.
London. Jan. 13. Tho sudden death
of Lord Iddeslcigh yesterday has
usurped for tho time being the atten
tion of Kuiopc that had been dlrretcd
toward tho crisis in tlcrmauy. ltwas
so unexpected that It hai come nsn
heavy blow lo the political leaders
Tho 2'iinca siyi today that It enntnl
aiTect to Ignore the fact I hit the death
of Lord Ieldeslctgh la a serious blow to
the mlnUlry nnd to the Unionist ciuse
Doubtless, it says, rumors of serious
friction between his Lordship aud his
colleagues will obtain Increased cur
rency, but the truth has In uo degree
justified tho malevolent guesses of got
slpcrs. nrrvtis or Tim hcmisc.
In an Interview, describing the occur
rence, Dr. Langaton said: "I was Bum
moned to Downing street at about a: 15 p.
m. On arriving I fouud L6rd Salisbury
and several Rcnlltmeu lu a room with the
Farl of Iddlctlclgu. Thu Ejrl uji lying
on a sofa. Ho was in a scml-conscloui
couditlou and excessively pule. HUejes
wero closed, his pulso was scarcely percep
tible, and his heart was still, 'lbe pallor
was that ot death. I applied restoratives
direct!), but they were without ciTcct. I
cannot say precisely when he died. If bo
was not dead when I arrived, ho passed
away soon after without a struggle. I an
nounced his death to Lord Salisbury and
the others In the room, All were deeply
affected and retired to an adjoining room."
Lord lddcslelirh, who was better known
ns Sir btafToid Norlbcote, was born In Lou
don, October 'J7, ISIS, and succeeded his
grandfather as baronet In 131. Ho entered
Parliament lu 1$.V, and rom&ined there, ex
e t pi In 1S."jT-'A until is$5. Ho w as private
fterctary to Mr, Gladstone when bo was
president of tho Hoard of lrado, and during
Lord Dtrl.v's third administration became
president of the board. In iwlT-fcS ho was
Mcreiary oi fctoto lor inula, an: in
I 71 ho was appointed a member of the
Joint II Inh Commission, and assisted
st Wasblncton In framing the treaty
which provided for arbitrating tbo Alabama
el situs. In 1&74 ho was Disraeli's Chancel
lor ot tbo Exchequer ; succeeded Disraeli as
leader of tho Conservatives In the Houso of
Commons in 1570, which placo be held until
lS.", when ho was elevated to tho peerage
as Earl of Id leslelgh. In Lord Salisbury's
C cabinet In that year ho was mado First
Lord of tho Admiralty, and in l$sG ho was
11 vtn the foreign portfolio, from which po
sition ho was on tho point of retiring at tbo
time of bis death.
