TRICT COVRT. eet throughout the country, by reason of Judgo Benedict's hifrh standlnj* ns in authority In ad? miralty case* Whfn a Tribune reporter tried to see Judge Hetiedl't yesterday In tho Federal Bulld lnr. In order to verify the 6tory, he begged to be ex? ceed, having been forewarned of the nature of the Inquiry to be made of him. The Judge's friends say that he would have re? tired two or thtee yann ago, only he preferred to see a man of his own poetical faith appointed to the judgeship. While Judge Benedict has never taken an active part in politic*, lt Ll known hy hi* asso? ciates that he ls a sincere Republican, and believes. lt ls said, that the appointment of his successor by President McKinley would he more appropriate than by any other appointing power Furthermore. Judge Benedict, after fi continuous service on the bench of over thirty years, feels that he is entitled to a rest. Judge Benedict was appointed in IM to the office he now holds. The old Southern Ju? dicial District of New-York included ths territory at present In the Southern District, und Bong Island and Staten Isl.ind besides. The rapid increase in population made the wotk cumbersome, and at ahout the close of the war a successful effort was made to make Long Island and Staten Island a new district ? the '-."astern. Judge Benedict at tnat time was recognized as a first-class admiralty i.iwyer. nnd easliy secured thc appointment to the new judgeship. Judge Benedict was horn in March. MM, at New burg, N. Y. He obtained his aducstloa at Burling? ton, in the University of Vermont. After being f;ra.lnated he r.-moved to New-York City, and stud? ed law in an office, but never attended a law school. He began practising In New-York '"Itv, and wa* soon admitted to tlie firm which then became known as Benedict, Burr A Benedict This firm still exists under the name of Benedict & Benedict, and ls one of the few law firms dev, ted to admiralty practice.

THE JCRY IN THE KLEIN ARSON CASE DISCHARGED. tUMIS SENT BACK TO HATHOKD STP.KET JAII^ WHAT THE TT.IAI_= HAY'S Cl ixT THE lYil'NTT. The third trial of Jacob Klein on a charge of urson In the first degree resulted yesterday In a disagreement. At 1 p. m. the Jury sent to Julge Hurd a note saying that they could not reach an ugreenicnt. They stood seven for acquittal and five for conviction. The three trials of Klein have cost the county of Kings about $20,000. They will long be remembered as probably the mist expensive prosecution ever conducted in the county, in which the defendant was a man of so little Importance in the business, social or political world. It ls certainly the most costly prosecution of a man of Klein's Importance that has failed to result in a conviction la ibis county. The three trials have consumed in the aggregate one month. At a moderate estimate the District Attorney's office costs the people IliO.SM a year, and one-twelfth of this amount is $12,600. To be sure, ali of Mr. Backus's assistants, clerks and detectives did not devote their whol? time to this one case, but lt ls a safe estimate that all of the time devoted by Mr. Backus and his subordinates, Including Spe? cial Assistant District-Attorney Davis, to this case, would easily make a total of one month's steady work for the whole force. ? 'OSTS OF THF. COURTS. Tho ("ountta-t'ourt costs $100,0u0 a year, and the Jurors for the County Court last year received $36.730. This mukes tlie two cost the county $10,.'.fii'i a month. Tho two trials of Klein he.d In June occupied the whole time of the County Court, so estimating them ut two-thirds of the month of Klein's trials the court cost the people S3.-JO for tne first two-thirds of a month and a like amount for tho last trial, when both county Judges were Bitting simultaneously. Twice J3.-20 ls 17,040. It costs 12,141 66 a month to run the office of Com? missioner of Jurors. It ls safe to say that this offlc? devoted a quarter of a month to Mr. Klein, nnd that lt will rec-lve $528 ? for Its services. This. then, is the recapitulation of the cost to the people of the Klein trials: liiiHlct-Atturney'i office .112,500 00 .County i*o.it and Junrs . ".??*<? ou Department of Jurora . ti2H 55 Total .$-0.0-8 55 IA'ANTED THE JTRY KEl'T OCT LONGER. The Klein Jury retired at about 6 o'clock on Tues- | ?lay evening. At ll o'clock yesterday morning the Jury requested that the testimony of Mrs. Johnson, I better known as Betsy Schwartz, should be read to j them. This was dont, and then they retired. At 1 p m. they sent word that en agreement was Impos? sible. Judge Hurd sent for District-Attorney Backus and for Hubert lt. Elder, the prisoner's counsel. Mr. Backus said he thought the Jury should be held longer. "Mr. Backus." said Judge Hurd, emphatlcRlly. "thia case has been tried three times, and each time the Jury has disagreed 1 will not keep this Jury out one minute longer In order to enforce an ftrrecnient If two former disagreement* and the present disagreement don't throw some doubt on the question of the defendant's guilt. I don't know what will." _ __ . Mr Backus protested, and said the Jury had not lieen kept out lon* enough, but the Judge merely replied "I think they have." The Jury was then sent for and after the foreman had said that lt wu* out of the question for them to agree, they were discharged. In the two former trials the Juries have stood eight for acquittul and four for con X Klein was removed to Baymond Street Jail. Mr. Elder will move for his discharge to-day.

STOCK SECI'TIED BY METROPOLITAN TRACTION PF.OPl.K. j A report that capitalists connected with the Metro? politan TraeMin Company had purchased a con? trolling Interest In the Second Avenue Railroad was confirmed yesterday by William C. Whitney I nnd Thomas F. Ryan. Mr. Whitney said that a majority of the stock of the Second Avenue Rail? road Company was offered for sale to him a few ?Vivs ago. and while the Metropolitan Traction I Company had not acted as a corporation In tho ! purchase of the controlling Interest, the stock had bern purchased with a view to Incorporating the ! Second-ave. line with the Metropolitan system In the n"nr fufire. Mr. Ryan said he had Joined with Mr. Whitney and other men Interested In the Melro i polltail system to purchase the control of the 8*c i ond-ave. stock, with the understanding that the j Second-ave. line aould be leased to the Metro? politan. Ho far as could be ascertained yesterday lhere had l?"ii no agreement between the Metropolitan i and the Thlrd-ave, people for fl union of Interests. . Tho Third Avenue Railroad Company has shown a disposition to hold Its properties, believing them to he worth BS much to Itself as to any other corpora? tion, and to secure control of lines which the Metro? politan Traction (rmpany could not get. Thar* has been a tendency to the control of street railway line* in the large cities by great corporations in re? cent years. In Heston and In Philadelphia, aa well as In this city, corporations have secured control of most of the street railroads. In this city there ls a prospect that all the smaller linet will be ab? sorbed by one or the other of the two Urge corpora tlcns. To many New-Yorker* who travel on the surface cars the prospect of having the lines controlled by the Metropolitan Traction Company has not been sltogother agreeable, and they have expressed much criticism Of -ome of the company's methods There has beer, a great deal of complaint about tne sys 1 tem of transfers and the turning of passengers out , of cars at stations along the cable line to walt. for other car* which are overcrowded There have been 1 a number of accidents, not only at Dead KUI i Curve, where sevrral persons have been kil ed. but also at other points In Broadway and in ?????"? ton-ave., and these accidents hnve increased the ais trtist of the management. The bringing of the Second-ave. line under tin contnl of the Metropolitan Traction < ompany may mean a reduction of expenses on the Second-ave. line .it first, and lt may mean the change from horse-power to underground trolley later. There are twenty-eight mlle* of track, or fourteen miles of double 'track and sidings. In the Second Avenue Railroad. The main line is from Fulton Perry through Fulton-aL, Waterjst., Peck Slip, loath-at., Ollver-Bt. Park Row. Bowery. i'rand-st.. rOT* syth-st., Fast tfoueton-at. and Second-ave. to tne Harlem River.

Second-are., Stuyvesant Pl.,ce and Astor Place, to Broadway. The Second Avenue Railroad Company has a cap? italization of $3.76-.'?>i. represented by stock amount? ing to $1.8*2,000. first mortgage bonds amounting to tl $10.00.1, and $3"0.ooo In debenture bonds. There ls also a mortgage of oWtOt on the com? pany's stable propertv. The road has Iveen in op? eration since ISM. In recent years it haa carried pearly twenty million passengers annually In its cars. For ISM Its gross receipts were SS.,.Ki. and lt oald IW.100 In dividends on its capital stock.
