Terr Horlou Charge Made by Doth Men.
Jersey City bos a sensation to talk over to.
day, the result of tho arrest of Justlco Henry
0. Grossman this morning on a, charge
of assault and hottery raado by Josso Do
Groff.n vvoll-known Newark nvenuo merchant,
Tho arrest is tho outcomo of n scandal con
corning throo of tho most highly connected
families on Jorsoy Oity Heights, and tho ro
milt will probably bo two divorco suits, ono
of which has alroady bocn commonccd.
Jesso Do Or off in his complaint against
Jtifitico Crossman soys that he called on tho
latter at his homo on Court IIouso place,
Wednesday night to follow his wife, who
was at the houso, and to accuse tho Justlco of
undue intimacy with her during her frequent
visits at hiB homo. Ho says that Crossman
followed him to the street and struck him
repeatedly in tho faco with some sharp in
strument. Ho procured a warrant from
Jnstico Aldridgo Inst night.
JubUco Crossman, when arrested, declared
that Mrs. Do Groff's visits wore professional,
os she was preporing to prosocuto her bus
band for alleged oruol trcatmont. Ho then
stated that Do Groff had boon unduly
intimato with Mrs. Carrio E. Wills, who fs
now suing for a divorco from her husband,
Henry E. Wills, a prominent young lawyer,
beforo Chancollor McOill. Justice Crossman
says that ho can produco five witnesses who
saw tho coutilo together at a Union Hill ro
eort on Sunday, Aug. 14
Tho Justice's version of tho wholo scandal
ous complication is that Mrs. Wills's suit for
freedom is brought about by her dosiro
to join Do Groff, and that tho lat
, ter's alleged cruel treatmont of his wife
lias been designed as n provocation for di
vorce Mrs. De Groff had boon disposed to
realize her husband's ideas by a suit, and hod
boon in consultation with him for sonio timo
preparing for such a stop.
De Grolf's accusation of criminal intimacy,
tho Justice says, is utterly false. Ho states
that tho course Do Groff hag taken has de
cided in his mind his own courso that of ex
posing the wholo of tho Bcandal which ho
Jiromisod to make moro spicy in tho near
Mrs. Do GrofTs suit is now a certainty,
nnd with both this and tho Well'B suit in
progress at once Jorsoy City's bump of gos
sip is likely to be considerably enlarged.
It is said that Lawyer "Wells has found
plenty of news in Justlco Grossman's story
nnd that ho will oppose his wifo's suit with
consequent energy.
Jesse Do Groff was not at his etoro on New
ark avenue, this morning, and could not bo
found by Tni Would reporter.

At tho offlco of tho Netherlands-American

that customers beginning an actual delivery of

to that effect is in tho printod contracts they

Edward G. Gllmore, tho populnr manager
of Niblo's Garden, louugod bolilnd tho stngo
during tho first two nets of Jcfforson's " Hip
Van Winklo" lost evening. Ho had judici
ously placed a Bnug littlo sum on tho Yalo
football team, nnd tho news of tho victory
had put him in a good humor.
Ho gathered two or throo of his friends
togothcr during tho intermission botween tho
second nnd third nots nnd strollod into tho
bar of tho Metropolitan Hotel.
According to reliable persons very littlo
wino was drunk by Mr. Gilmoro or his
friends, but in tho courso of tho noxt half
hour a sanguinary encountor took placo bo
tween tho manager and John J. liyon, an as
sistant in tho wino room.
Mr. Gilmoro camo out of tho fight with a
gash across his forehead which will mark
him for life. It was caused by his
being thrown violently, faco forward,
against tho edgo of tho marble-topped
bar. Ho had many scratchoB nnd brulsos
on his faco and hands, and somo of
his gray hair was torn out hv tho roots. Tho
lobo of his loft ear wns almost bitten through
by ltynn and ho had also beon badly bitten
on the right hand.
The utmost efforts of tho bystanders could
not separato tho men until tho fight hnd
lasted nenrly a minute nnd the mischief was
done. Whon Policeman Hunter, of tho Mul
berry Rtreot station, entered tho barroom,
being attracted by tho shouts of tho combat
ant o nnd bystanders, ho found tho two men
struggling fiercely. Ilynn had ono hand on
tho manager's throat and with tho other ho

hair. Hunter struck Ilyan with his club and
dragged him off to the station-house, Mr.
Gilmoro charging him with an unprovoked

boss, 19 West Eighteenth street. His wounds
were proporly dressed, and ho was then
tnken to his rooms at tho Hotel Brunswick
and put to bed. N
It is very hard to get a full and intelligent
account of how tho trouble arose. Mr. Gil
man and his friends aro desirous of keeping
tho matter os quiet as possiblo, and tho liar
tenders and two hackmen who sympathize
with llyan scorn to be afraid to speak out.
When a Wobld reporter called ot tho
Brunswick this morning nud was admitted
to Mr. Gilmoro's room, Dr. Quackenbosn
was dressing his patient's wounds.
Mr. Gilmoro in n weak nnd fcoble voico
said that ho would profer not to talk just
at present, and roforrod tho reporter to
Deputy Sheriff Bermingham.
' I want to make only ono remark to tho
press," said he, " and that is that I never
nnd anything to do with this man ltynn
until lubt ovoning, and did not even know his
name until after thiB unfortunate affair."
Mr. Bermingham was seen in Gibson's sad
dlory store, but was very roluctant to givo
nny information. "Mr. Gilmoro was chat
ting very good-naturedly with myself
nnd two other gentlemen named Gray
and Sheridan," said ho, "when this man
llyan camo up to tho bar and spoke to tho
cashier. As no turned to leavo ho mado an
offensive remark to Mr. Gilmoro,
and before I knew what had hap
pened tho two mon wcro struggling all over
tho room. I throw myself between thorn,
but could not soparntn them. Ilyan struck
first, I bollovo, and then Mr. Gilmoro's blood
wns up. Ho wanted to hit llyan as badly
as llyan wanted to hit him. Ilyan was drunk
and wanted to pick a quarrel. That was tho
wholo causo of it. I will not Bay what was
the offensive remark which he made at first,
but, I nssnro you, it was ontiroly uncalled
for by any conduct on Mr. Gilmoro's
part. Mr. Gilmoro did not know Ryan until
oftcrwnrds, for his first remark after Ilyan
wns dragged off by tho policeman was:
'Who is this man, anyhow? I don't know
him. What is his namo V
"Mr. Gilmoro is rather peculiar in his
ways and he may have given previous offense
to ilyan in somo way, but he did not know it.
I havo heard that llyan wasonco in a higher
position in the hotel nnd that ho cherished a
grudge againBt Mr. Gilmoro.
llyan was arraigned beforo Judgo Pattor

Gilmoro charged the man with assault The

A certificate from D. Quackcnboss stating
that Mr. Gilmoro's injuries woro so sorious
that ho was confined to his bed and that he
would not be ablo to appear for sovcral days.
Judge Patterson then committed llyan in
8to00 for examination Sunday morning.
Ilyan is a powerfully built man, thirty-two
years old. Ho is unmarried, and ho lives nt
305 East Twenty-fifth strcot. Ho did not say
n word whon ot tho bar, but afterwards
spoko to a WonLD reporter as fol
lows: "Mr. Gilmoro struck mo
first, and if the men who snw tho
affair wero not such cowards they would tell
the truth in my favor. I suppose thoy are
afraid for their positions. Mr. Gilmoro is a
rich man nud I am a poor ono. I supposo
ho will drivo mo to tho wall.
" My day's work ends at 8 o'clook In tho
ovoning, and I havo to turn in my book to
the enshier ovory night. I wont upstairs at
about 0.30 o'clock nnd put in my book
nt tho bar. I wished tho cashier good night
and was turning away when I camo close up
to Mr. Gilmoro. He said : ' Did you address
that remark to mo ?' I had mado no offonsi vo
remark and I said so, but ho pushed mo hard
and said if I did not get out ho would put mo
out. We had some words and ho struck mo
on tho mouth. I fell against tho bar and
hurt my head. Seo this."
He showed tho reporter an ugly wound on
the head.
" This mado me very mad," ho continued,
"and I went into tho fight for all I was
worth. Tho policomau clubbed mo, and
every ono seemed to be against mo. I hud
nover had any trouble with Mr. Gilmoro bo.
foro, and did not want to quarrel with him."
llyan got bail at tho station-house last
night, and bis bondsman continues to bo an
swerable for him.
George Btaygan, manager of tho wine

I'niLAnELriiiA, Nov. 25. Llttlowood, tho
Englishman, still lends tho rncers in the Mx
duys' race. Tho distance Albert,
tho Philadolphinn, will hnvo to travel
to make his score even with Littlo.
wood is equal to tho iliMnuco from hero to
Trenton. Ho is iu tho pink of condition
and promises his friends to do some great
running to-day. Littlowood has made a bet
of $50 to .150 thnt ho breaks Fitzgerald's
record. He 1h now running a six.milo gait
and looksTrcsh.
On neither Littlowood or Albert aro thoro
any marks which indicate their wouderful
feats of endurance. Littlowood's eye is ns
bright as a diamond, aud his step ns light ns
on tno first day of tho race. Almost con
stantly he cheus a broomsplint nud seems to
enjov it.
Albert, who vies with Littlowood in good
looks, keeps on adding milo after mile, look,
ing no worso than n well-fod bnnk cashier
adding a column of figures. Noremno is
hard at work aud U doing n good business.
Albert told a reporter that all tho slocn ho
wauts beforo tho lluisli of tho contest is three
hours, aud of all tho raeos ho hnd made big
timo in thnt ho never felt better than ho did
now. Ho says that after he gets tho sleep ho
will stay continually on tho track until ho
passes Littlowood.
Authorities at tho rink say that It is Im
possible for Littlowood to remain on tho
track to-morrow liko Albert can. They say
ho was not trained that way, and must novo
considerable sleep beforo the iIhIbIi. While
Littlowood sleeps Albert says ho will reduce
the gap and forgo ahead.
Ab an incentive for Littlowood to do somo
of tho tallest work evor dono, somo 250 gen
tlemm havo subscribed a purse for him if
Fitzgerald's master achievement is surpassed.
Littlowood said ho folt strong and ho had
faith in his ability to beat tho record, and he
offered to do it provided an oxtro purse of
$500 was given him. Inside of half an hour
aivo gentlomon subscribed $250 towards tho
purse, and tho Englishman was given assur
ance that he would rocolvo at least $1,000
moro providod ho crossed Fitzgerald's mark
of 010 miles.
Whilo tho Englishman's great porformanco
attracted tho crowd tho other four mon still
in tho rare wero also doing good work.
"Yes, it is almost n Buro thing that LiHIc.
wood will beat tho record now," said Frank
Dole. "I expect him to do groat work to
night and to-morrow."
