MITCHELISA WITNESS IN "HERALD" LIBEL SUIT ? lire Commissioner's Brother and Tirrell Seek $100,000 Mayor Mitrhel and Controller Fren dergast wt re witnesses in the Supreme Court yaaterday lB the trial of a libel suit brought by Tilden Adamson, head of the Hureau of Contraet Supervision and Supplies in the Controller's effice. BgaiBflt "The New York Herald." Adam.-on. a brother of Robert Adam? son, Fire Commissioner, and G L.

Thfl Mayor and Controller tefltified that they were aware that Adamson -...,. te receive an increase from $6,000 to 17400 a year m the budget of his bureau I* 1S the centention of 'he defendant that while there may have been no irregularity in the grant ing of the increase, the manner in which it was done was unlawful. Counsel fur "The Herald" contended in opening the case that the law re? quired an itemized budget from each department, showing what each item is for. The increase in the Adamson .. he said, was lumped together, so that it did not show for what the increase was asked. Nor did "The City Kecord" publish the purpose of the increase or show that Adamson's aal- . ary was being increased. said the law? yer. this, too, being provided to enable , iaxptyers to have ? public hearing. The lump sum as published was a "proceeding in the dark," contended counsel for the newspaper. In pub liihing thfl alleged libel, he said, "The, Herala" merely performed its duty as ? newspaper, to keep the public in formed on matters relating to public affairs.
