He Loses a Suit at Law Involving a Million Dollar Dia mond. A Deposit of Half the Purchase Money Made by the Potentate. He Changed His Mind, But Cannot Get Back His Cash--Mr. Jacobs Is "Mr. Isaacs." The million-dollar diamond case of the nizam of Hyderabad was decided in India about three weeks ago, says the New York San. The case has been the talk of India, and, to a lesser extent, of England. It was decided against the nizam. This distin guished potentate was beaten in the courts by a humble though famous d~-aler in gems or bric-a-brac named Jacob. who is said to be the very person whomr Marion Crawford immortalized under the name of Mr. Iaascs. The nizam is one of the greatest of all the Indian potentates. His large territory, nearly two-thirds the size of Bengal, lies between the Madras and the Bengal presi dencies. He is noted for his friendliness toward the empress of India and her gov ernment, for the magnificenca of his jewelry and for the lavish hospitality with which he entertains distinguished guests. The nizanm was one of Mr. Jacob's best customers. Jacob is welcomed at every In dian court, for he has high reputation as a dealer in the costliest of jewels, and as a shrewd and indefatigable bric-a-bran hunter. The rich native princes have been among his Lost customers. Every year he has vi.itvd Hyvderabad, where he was lodged and fed in one of the nizam's palaces. l)ur ing the trial Jacob's counsel undertook to say that tile gem merchant was on very friendly terms with the nrizam. His high nous, however, r'ipudiated this assertion and drew an emuphatlr d;stinction between lodging a traveler and entertaninu a guest. The nizeism iurd their relations were purely commercial and anything like friendship between them was wholly out of the rlues tion. One day, when the nizam was in particu larly good inu or, Mr. Jacob happened to remark that he could procure for him one of the higcest and fiuest diamonds in the world for 4i;lakhs of rupees. Perhaps this does not convey to all readers the idea of a very great eaur of money. The fact is. however, that 46 liakhs of rupees are some thing over fl,O00000. The gem Mr. Jacob had in view would not bring anything like that sum in the open market, but great In dian potentates with millions of taxpayers in their domains may be expeoted to in dulge some rather extravagant whims, and his highness told the dealer in tems that if he would bring the expensive bauble to him he would par 46 lakhs of rupees for it if it met his approval, but that the gemn was to be returned if it did not please him. Mr. Jacob seemed to agree to tihes terms. At the same time he said he could not get the atone from England unless half of the specified pur clase price was deposited in a bank in Calcutta. The nizam thought this stipulation was reaseonable, ad upward of $500,000 was accordingly placed in the Cal outta bank, subject to the order of Mbr. Jacob. A soon as the owners of the gem received notice that the money had been deposited in Calcutta they forwarded the gem to In dia, where it was duly handed over to Mr. Jacob, who set out in great haste for Hy desabad, expecting that he was about to b make a sale which would put a small for- I tune into his pocket. In this hope he was t disapnointed. The nizam had changed his 'I minar. He had seen a model of the dia- I mond rand it did not come up to his expec- n tatiods. He had also been informed that a the sum asked for it was absurdly in ex- t cess of its real value. Another important a personage had, moreover, sapeared on the r scene. This was 1ir DenIs Fitzpattrck, the v British resident. He informed his high- c ness very frankly that, in view of the fact I that the finances of Hyderabad were not in r a flourishing condition, and that there was d a prospect of a famine in the northern pirt c of the state, it was a very bad time for the t great ruler to put so much money into a a wholly unproductive investment. His highness said "no" with much emphasis to i Mr. Jacob. The dealer used all his bland ishments to induce the nizam to change his a mind, but in vain. The sale was off. Then Mr. Jacob began to talk of compen sation for the exaense he had incurred and 1 the trouble he had taken. He said he was t entitled to at least $10,000. This claim was i not disputed, but the nizam delicately hinted that before the claim was paid the i twenty-three lakhs of rupees which had c beuon deposited in the Calcutta bank should ( be returned. Mr. Jacob did not show any I alacrity about complying with this im- 1 portant part of the operation. In fact, i the ilmoiay was not forthcouing at all, and his hii;llness bronught a criminal suit against the dealr to r-cover it. This proceedinu 1 was unsuccebaful, and Mr. Jacob, urp t this I writing, not only has the nizam's 5i90,ti)10 hut has also triumphed over him in the t courts. The telegraphic reports do not epeak I definitely of the grounds of the acquittal. All that is yet kuown is, that the accused I disclaimed all dishonest intentions and lte clareil that he had paid to the owner of the stone unarly the whole of the atmount. It I remains to be ;een whether the nizam ha- I any prpopect of recovering his money by any othe: procedure. The court suggeste i in its decision that a t civil suit might lie angitust Mr. Jacob for the recovery of the money. Ono curious fe;.sore of the affair is the I attitude of the nizam 's subjecjts. When it became known throughout tlyderabad that his hlighness intended to give testimony be fore a commission appointed for: that pur ripos the people were highly iudignaint. They said it would be a humiliation and a digrarce to the country for its ruler to con descend to give testimony like an ordinary mortal. 'Thereupon his highness felt it his duty to i°,sue a proclamation in which he set forth his~ grounds of action. SHe said that in the early days the word of the Ulzam was law and superceded the dictum of any oth'.r tribunal. But in these Sgood civilized tim :s, he continued, this idea had been righteously swept away. lu the course of India's progress law courts lhad been established. These courts were the fount of justice, from which the rich and pooe, rules and subjects, might alike expect to see just claims afisrmed iandt wrongs punished. It was right and proner for the ruler to appeal to these courts when he had occasion, and to furnish all the light he could that would exr.edite the course of a justice. .Itt people were wrong in believing a thrat it was any degredattion of, his dignity a to e.ve testimony in a law case. Although his highness has been defeated in the court to which lie atppaled, he still retains his vary high opinion of legal tri bunals. FOR ANOGTilIER'S CRIME. The lsemiarkable Life Hllitory of an Ex : Convict in Mielolgan . . A remarkable story of the life of an ex it convict, who suffered half his lifetime as a prisoner behind the walls of the state s, prison at Jackson, Mich., for a crime of it which he was innocent, and wits then par ts doned, has been revealed in the compila . tions which ex-Warden General Humphrey f has just made public, says the Chicago 1- Inter-Ocean. Edward Murphy met his r. death a day or two ago in a railroad acci dent near Jackson. He was born eighty id two years ago in Ireland, bet ran away when d a lad, working his passage to America. He s- followed the sea for some time. Gonmg to r. Chicago later, he fell in love and was y- married. Having saved a little money, he purchased a small farm near Lockport, Ill. beveral children were born to the couple then the mother died. Two years after he married Bridget Mehan, but a little over a year after the second marriage Murphy suddenly left home and sailed on a vessel up the lakes. The first mate, John Williams, was at drinking man F and abused the sailors, Murphy among the number. At Mackinaw Murphy quit the vessel in the night, and within two hou a of his going, Williams was staboed and killed. 'IThee tears later Mu phy was ar rested in Chicago and identified as the mur derer by a sailor named Carson. He was convicted on the testimony of Carson and the r.:ward of $5'10 was paid to those who arrested him. He spent seven years in the "life solitary." When he went in his hair was as black as ink; when he came out, on the abolition of the so:itary system, it was white. He knew very little, his mind being affected. Many moves wyra subsaequntly ltaue to have him pardoned. hut nothing came of the efforts. as all believed him unilty. d After n'any years Jatk Carson, dying ;n Cuicago from a stab received in a a ..ono row, confessed that lie killed Williams and b caused the ar.tst of Murphy for tie double purpose or screening himself and r oe.ving half the reward. At once a move- a ment was set on foot for Murphy's release, and seven years ago, after an incarcetition of thilty-seven years, the much-wronged man was freed. When Murphy left. the irlson ha itlher lihad forgotten all aboutt h:a famnily i 11llinois, or was piqued at themi, for he did not go near them. lie became a burden on the county, and ltir his o e was taken to the legislature, iandi by special enactmenLt he was crantt it life annuity of $100 yearly.

Remarkable Experience of John Turk, a Pio neer of Helena. 39 Doses Taken at Once Did Not Kill, but Succeeded in Curing Himrn. John Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 39 doses of a so-called "San Francisco Quack's Medicine," at once, and was not killed, no promised by lival doctors. In Septem ber, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart, visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co., Liebig World Dispensary, San Francisco and Butte City, who had offices for two weeks at the Merchants Hotel, Helena. Mr. Turk had suffe:ed for years with Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects of merco ial Salivation. He had four of the best physicians in Montana attend him, and they failed to relieve him. Dr. Stod dart examined him, sent his prescriptions to Liebig Dispenaary, San Francisco. to be prepared. After Dr. Stoddart left, Mr. Turk met the local doctors and told them what he had done. They laughed at him, and said "that San Francisco quack would kill him." He was so frightened that when the medicine from San Francisoo came he put the bottle apon a shelf at his house, 707 Park st eat, Helena. and it stood neg lected until December (nearly three months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and night, had not slept half an hour at ia time in years.
