SIX CENTS FOR MKS. LEDEREB
EN'D OF HER LIBEL BUIT AGAINST THF. TRIBUNE. TirB Ji'RVs rsTiMATi: OF THE AAEOOBT OS DEFAMATION SHF. HAS 8L F FEItRD?SEN* BATIONAI? IXCTDEHTS BROUGHT 0!'T IN THE EXAMINATION, The libel suit of Ida Florin?- Lederer against Tl.- Tribun.- Association tor $60,400 damages for alleg'?! defamation, whir h liar, been on trial r? - fore Judge diegerich in the Court of Common rieas for the last week, was ended yesterday afterncon. The jury av.arded th-? plaintiff f, renta ?lamlges. This la in !:n- with Die record of The Tribune In libel suit?? for more than twelve years. Dur? ing thai time there has r?een only <>ne verdict awarded airains: this newspaper for more than 6 oents; an?l in that single instance th.. Judgment was reversed on appeal, and upon the s-eon.l trial the verdict It. thai case also was for ? cents. In other case.?? where the verdicts have n?>*. been for the nom nal f. c?-nts the trials have resulted In absolute *ti?lgmem In favor of the defendant. Many libel suits of an unroas.inahle and extraordinary' character hav.? been brought against The Tribune, but it may fairly b? said that tie acti n concluded yesterday was one of the most remarkable it has been called upon to defend. Th.? plaintiff was the daughter of the late Richard S. Ne-arc Unbe, the wealthy and suc? cessful lawyer. The publication complained of w-is a paragraph appended to the sketch of his life on the morning following his unc\pe??te,l death in July. 1S91. It was as follows: Ills oldest daughter, Florence, was marri.-?! t.? the theatrical manager, ?;. W. Lederer, about two years ag Lederer had ?\ wife living in Enplaii'i at the time, but this was not known by Miss New.?.mije?, family until some lime after her marriage. Tin? marriage was made much against the will of the -ill's parents. Tin- young wife went back t" her father's home as soon a* sh>? learned of the ?existence of a former wife, and went West with her father, .?h.- slipped away from the h.'iis. where the family were staying, cam?? back t New-Y >rh and \\.nt back to ?Led? erer. This was a heavy blow to her father, and h?. discarded !-.- r. She is now living in Harlem with Ledert r. Tw ' Sum STARTED. George W. T.e.ierer. the theatrical manager referred to, brought a $"?0.000 libel suit promptly upon this publication, but the action has not been brought to trial. The suit finished yes? terday was begun in the fall of 1M2 by the young woman he married. The trial attracted to Judge 'il.-g. rich's courtroom a large crowd "f spectators, wh.? evidently anticipated, from what they had known of the career of the Led? erer?, that there would be sensational devel? opments?-and they were not disappointed. A man nam--?l n?rnberger was the plaintiff's law? yer, ami Messrs. Saekett and Moquaid were the attorneys for The Tribune, other counsel were stated to have been engaged in the case by the plaintiff, but no ?ne appeared for her upon the trial except Mr. Bamb'-rger. Francis L. Wattman was the trial counsel for the de? fendants, and conducted the defence with great skill. Pom?- of the Incidents developed by him Were of dramatic int?-r? st. The chief defenses were that th<? publication was true, that it was privileged because ma?le upon the authority of the plaintiff herself ami that there was a variety of circumstances show? ing good faith on the part of the publishers and no damages suffered by plaintiff. Mrs. Lederer went first upon the stand and told a st ?ry upon her direct examination that ina?!?- her appear as a badly abused woman, but which presented an entirely different aspect before Mr. Wcllman had finished her cross-examination. Sh-- was compelled to admit that she ran away from her home at 5 o'clock in the morning t<> avoid what she knew was her father's Opposition t > her mar? riage to Lederer, that they w-nt together the same morning to Long Island aird w. r<- mar? ried; that her mother, learning of h?-r flight, fol? lowed in haste, but did not r'-a ch the roupie until the ceremony bad been performed; that th ?plaintiff returned with h?-r mother to Mr. New combe's home, where sh.? remain? I several Weeks, then went West with h?-r parent?, an : soon afterward, suddenly leaving them, rejoined Lederer in this city. SKNSATIONAL EPISODES OF THE TRIAL The evidence showed that many interesting incidents had happened in th" mean time. Upon the complaint of the woman claiming to be Lederer's former wife, lie waaarrested In aban? donment proceedings in the p'jioe court, and was indicted for bigamy. In the former pro? ceedings the complainant herself and many witnesses gave evidence to show a common law naarrlage between her and Lederer a year or so before his marring" t?? Miss Newoombe. Lederer stoutly denied the former marrlag?-, but admitted sending letters t?? Iit Inclosed la envelopes gfMrciseod "Mrs George w. Lederer," and also living with her in this city ?and else? where. In fact. It cam?- out in the trial that he lived with this woman at the Clonan House up to within three days ?>f the runaway mar? riage with Miss Neweombe. Now come some of the sensational episodes Of the trial. The plaintiff had declared that she knew nothing of the proocedlngs brought by the woman claiming to be the former wife, ex? cept what she had subsequently gleaned fr?>m the newspapers, and that, as a matter of fact, she ?.?.as satisfied from the first that the other woman ha<l n?. marital claims up?m Lederer. Mr. Wellman then confronted h?*r with h?r own petition, ?Sled in the Supreme court within ten daya uf<r her marriage to Lederer, and sworn to before a notary public, In which she alleged the information sh.- had r"-ivf<i as t" th. ex? istence of th'* f??rm'-r wife, and staled that sh" had not lived with Lederer as his aife, and asked t?. have her father appointed guardian ad lltett, m an ?action f??r the annulment of her marriag-: with Lederer. AN AMAZ1NO STORY. It was plain to every one that. If the plaintiff admitted the bona Sde ??haraoter of this docu ment, that was the end of h<-r '-ase. But sh) d I not admit it; and the story she told In explana? tion of it -, appearance on the court records wag ?ne of the most amazing that has been given la the i urts in a long time. Sh.- said al lir.st ???t ?he did not know wiu-ther the signature ?*?? hers or not: then she said that sh?- believed 11 to be, but that it did not look like her signa* tut*- Then sh.- denied that she had ever seen the P?S?rbe: re her examination In the ease. Finally in* made the astounding statement that two or ?iree day(1 Hft,,r her marriag.- and her return to ner father's bouse she was 'rugged, ami, while in an Bnconacious or semi-unconscious comlition, ?J ?sjaatuie t?i the ?petition wa? obtained with ?ut her knowledge ??r consent, and us?-1 by her fj-h'r iri th.- ??iurt proceedings In the same way. TnU was not an easy story to maintain under such k?"n cross-examination as Mr. W.-IIniaus, *nl th<- impr.-ssion made when fin-t told ?vas (?opened many times before he had tinish.-d his i Questi ,r,a. 8ubse<iue:,tlv the defence called the iotary public who t.,.,k h?T verification at Mr. | Eta-combe's house, ami h?- testified thai sh? veri? BSiIII voluntarily and regularly. Mr Weiiman followed up the career of the ?hBfortUnate young woman sin?'- thai lime with *feat delicacy and consideration, and particu? larly the j'ortion that has been frequently "rought ?before the public ?luring the last year j J?r ?o. But the life th?- plaintiff has led since her separation from Lederer laut spring, th?- j habeas corpus proceedings In which. <?n his al? legations of her abandonment of their chiid ami or her unlltness t?? ?have Its custody, it was awarded to him. ami the divorce proceedings -?st November, in which he again got tin- cue tody of the child?th?-?-. and many other sad Incident?- ,,f th<- plaintiff's llf.- were brought out BJ Mi W. liman, as h<- sal?l, not s?i much to demonstrate the character of the woman a? to emphasize th?- fact that her father wag right When he mu?l?? every effort to save h.-r from the ??fe Into Which She went when sh? return? ?i to I-? derer. The plaint.if h- stlil a woa_ati ? unuaual teauty and attractlv.-m-ss, as well as brightness and eleveraeM of Intellect; and it would be ? ? ry to understand the pride her father had f. It In her and the effect upon hi? Ufe of her conduct ? WS? shown by the evidence that he dlsin- i herlted her. and althoi gh she heKan a contest of h.-r faUwra win, it *mj n?,t succeed. THE OTHER WOMAN ON TUB STAND. Another striking episode- ,,f the trial was the deposition of the woman claiming to be Leder er's former wife, introduced by the defendants. She testified that when she abandoned the crim? inal proc-f-edings begun against htm soon after his marriage to Miss Newcomb?, It was be,-ause Lederer had induced h.-r to do so by sending bar o\er to England and promising to follow her and marry her 0.1 the other aide. Th.' affidavit which sue made at th<- time of withdrawing the prn ie,<lir:?s. she teafifled, was a part of the same bargain. Lederer himself was put upon the stand, but he did not deny a word of this evi dence, although he did ?leny that he had ever married this woman. Much other evidence on this point was introducid by both sides. The Jury listened to the protracted testimony With ppttenco and interest. They were, almost without exception, substantial business men, and they were detained nearly a week ?beyond th.- usual time by the length of this trial, but they made no complain!. The Jurors were An? ton Halm. C.irl l'ralltorlous, David W. Leaver, Fred-rick Andreas, Henry Hovet, Henry N'asb. Louis Behwangerl, William it. Lowe. Charlea E. Harvey. Charles Bttrassnutn, w. c. Mauch and William A. Wales. Judge ?*.le?*orlcli con? cluded his charge ?t S o'clock, but the ?jury did not return with thdr v.-rdlct until after 4 o'clock, it was stated by s.-veral of the jury? men that they stood ten t<> two upon the first ballot in favor of a verdict for the defendant, but, as tin- other two thought there should in. a nominal finding for Ih.- plaintiff for the aake of her child, all finally concluded that six cents would be the proper award to ^n-e. .fuilp-?' Oieg? ri.-h's ruling! and charge gave evident*? of a dealre t., reonduct the tase with absolute impartiality and fairness.
