Fetor D. Sweeny stirred up a lessening Inter
est yesterday in the action ot Mrs. Laura V,
Apploton boforo Justice Patterson for a recov
ery of a fifth of tho Plaza Hotol site). Mr.
Bwoeny had been on intimate terms In Paris
with John Anderson, the millionaire tobac
conist Uo was called by the dofonco. He Is a
short, stout man. with black eyes, and his
black hair Is stroaked with gray. Ho lives at
41 East Sixty-eighth street
Mr. Swoony tostifled thathe and hts wlfo had
cordlat relations with Mr. Anderson and his
wife, who is othcrwlso known In theso pro
ceedings as Koto Connor, in Paris in 1831.
up to Mr. Anderson's death. Mr. Bwoeny so
cured physicians for Mr. Andorson. and on his
death went with tho remains to Havre. Mrs.
Anderson embarked with thorn from there to
this country. The wltnoss consldorod Andor
son sane. Anderson had nn Intellectual hoad,
which was exhibited more strongly by tho fact
that ho kept his hair cropped short His up
pcarnnco wub striking. Ho was of medium
holght and deep chestod, but with no tendency
to fulness." Ho was erect In his carriage. Ho
was alwny careful about his dress. He had
expressive giay-bluo eyes. When ho came to
Paris ho seemed as it ho intended to have a
comfortaolo time.
"As If ho got away from New York," ehlppod
in Lawyor Choato. Tho wltnoss eoneurrod.
Shortly before his death Anderson eald he
had provided for hts wlfo should sho survlvo
him. In case sho dlod first, and he soon after,
hor son might bo left without resources. To
provldo for this emergency ha desired to
amend his will. Uo had not tpokon about
making any other changes in it
On cross-examination. Col. James asked:
".Did you know that criminal proceedings
wero contemplated against you when you loft
this city for Paris In 1873?"
"Thero was no foundation for those charges,
I want to explain "
"Answer tho question."
" But you aro trying to Intimato "
" You know, Mr. Sweeny, as a lawyor that you
must answor."
" I know as a man what is right"
He finally answered in the afllrmatlvo. He
said he had glvon up hts place as President ot
tho Department of Parks in order that the
Commission might inquiro into his accounts.
Ue had heard that indictments wero found
against him In 1875. Ho did not oomo hero to
defend himself, because lie understood that
the indictments wore tho result of apolitical
conspiracy of enemies who doslrod to oust him
from power. Thu State had brought an action
against him and his deceased brother. James
L Sweeny, for a large sum. His counsel,
Charles O'Uonor, had made arrangement no
that ho could come from Paris In 1877 to de
fend this action with Immunity from arrest.
The action had been compromised by the pay
ment of $400,000 to tho Attorney-General of
tho State.
" Why did you pay Oils money ?"
"Because thoro was evidence that money
had gone Into my brother's hands that had
been talntod. He was an honorablo man. I
paid tho money In honor of his moniory."
To another question Inthe same Una the
witness roplled:
"Your attempt to blacken my character by
indictments that have been withdrawn is an
Houdmittodthathewas Intimate with Wil
liam M. Tweed and Klcbard B Connolly, but
qualified the statement by saying that it was
lolltlcal Intimacy. Ho said he was not a moni
tor of tho Tweed Ring, If by that was meant an
organization tor corrupt political purposes.
After tho civil BUlt was settled ho returnod to
Paris. The indictments wore quashed by his
Solltlcnl opponent District Attorney Danlol
.Rollins, in 1881.
"Don't you know they were quashed bocauso
Tweed. Connolly, nnd King wero dead?"
"I did not know King was dead."
"Don't you knowthoy were quashed because
your former counsel. John McKeon. was then
about to assume tho office of District Attor
ney?" " Jio. They wero quashed bocause there was
no foundation for them."
Col. James said ho had a lettor whloh would
explain tho matter fully. Tho signatures to It
wero Identified by Mr. Sweeny, who said it
wan signed by his counsel. Lawyers Choato
and Hurnblowor. tor tho defence, objected to
the introduction of tho lettor in ovidonoo.
Justice Patterson read It and declined to ad
mit it It was marked for future use.
Col. James persisted that although Daniel G.
Rollins Is not on trial, and although Mr. Mc
Keon Is dead, the letter was proper evidence
to explain tho real way In which the dismissal
of tho indictments came about.
Tho letter, which Is signed by John MaKeoa
nnd Anron J. Vnnderpool, states that sis In
dictments wero found against Peter B.
Sweeny. William M. Tweed, nnd William li
King on Juno 'Jrt, 187I5. for obtaining raonoy

Whon Mrs. Cutting asked him what ho wantod

About two weeks ago Mrs. Cutting's sister,

told her a tale of woo and then borrowed

discovered that ho was a professional beggar,
and she warned all of hor friends, Including

after her strango visitor had left, Mrs. Cutting
doclded that 11 was tho sumo man, and sho sat
down and wrotan four-page lottor to Superin

showed mo many years ngo." began tho man.
I havo painted n placquo for your husband,'
which ho will recclvo In the course ot a week

or admirable as compositions, yet contained
cortain elements calculated to amuse tho

the judicious to grieve. Wo refer to an
"Idyllo" by Dopplor. which was very pretty,
andtoa "Soxtot" by Thoodoro Gonvy. which

priest As it is their souls are in peril."
As all this negotiation was dono rapidly, tho
Athena Society ot New York had to bestir it

the basement of tho Germnn-fiwlBS Evangel

set plasterers to plastering, and painters to
painting and carpenters to building.

to the priesthood early in life, and, when ho
was still a boy. ho entered tho roynl monas
tery of St John, which crowns the island
of Patmos with great walls, built S50 years
ago above the cave ot the Apocalypses. He
went to the Theological School on tho
Island of Colchis, near Constantinople, and then
back to tho monastery, wjiero ho taught Greek
to tho youth of Patmos. For two yoars he
served as dcacou to the patriarchate of Alex

has been librarian and assistant chaplain at
the Plzarlan Theological School ut Athens.

wears atop his head a tall, dark-brown cylin

is straight and soft and brown, and but for the

beautiful shower to his waist
Hair is one of tho elgus ot a priest in the
Greek Churoh, just as lack of it is in.tho
ltoman Church. And in addition to the hair
mentioned, tho Bev. palslus lerendlnos has
flowing board and moustaches a shudo or so
darker than tho hair ot his head. These will
never bo cut and when they turn whito with

voluminous cont wlthdfngel sleeves. It Is of
dark brown cloth, and reachos to his feet It
is largo enough to hold two such men. and

will not wear this clouk and hat In New York,

spicuous. He will wcarplaln citizen's clothes,
and will keep his hair under an ordinary high
silk hut

According to tho rulo tn the Greek Church a

the propor way to scientifically administer H

itively dangorons in any othor way, but hava ' r
found out tho "Strictly Scientific" analysis of ,!H
that mystorlous cssonco called ''sbbbbbI
Not only this, but by actual demonstration I M
can prove that this ozono antl tho active prin- '
olple ot human life aro Identical. Tho scarcity nl
ot this active principlo In tho blood throw the H
system out ot baluncc, whan tho weakest part
of the Individual, Incapable to net energetical H

may bo tho liver, tho lungs, ortho kldnoys. nd LbbbbI
if tho inflammation abovo mentioned is allow '
ed to settlo for uny length of timo tho conges- H
tlon, like a stnenunt pool, will undergo fer- H
mentation or incipient decay. Spontaneously H
with fermentation the mlcrobo develops and
bacilli aro generated for tho express purpoia
of feeding on tho decaying surfaces, whloh U
would othcrwlso poison tho individual with '
llghtnlng-llko rapidity. This position is amply
proven by facts In the dissecting room, where H
inadvortcht scratches, coming In contact with l
a corpse, havo cost many a physician hts Ufa. H
To destroy microbes, thorefore. is tho most U
unnatural nnd unscienttrio method of combat-
lng disease Tho cause, as shown, lies deep-
can only rationally bo effected by so seasoning ' M
tho blond with the active principlo ot light, M
abovo alluded to (for ozono Is nothing else,
and tho octlvo vital principle is nothing else), "'saaaai
that it carries its Iieuling influences into tho 'Lnnnn!
recesses of evory glund. and enables the '
latter to becomo toned up in due time end
cast off all M
in accordance with natural law. This Is tho , M
true theory of the law ot health anddlsoasa. l
and to you, eontlemon, falls tho mission ot so '
enlightening your readers that they all caa M
intelligently grasp its saving possibility. Thia
mighty truth exposes the utter fallacy ot all
tho oxisting schools of praotlco in flrst dlsg- , ,
nosing this, that or tho othor form of tho urns ' '
disease, and then prescribing this, that or the M
other particular romody that may happen at
that particular timo to bo in popular favor.
Any human being thoroughly seasoned wita M
may fearlessly expose himself to all forma ot J
contagious disease without any danger of oom M
taminatlon. "'Il
In conclusion. I ropeat M
and tho doctor who, after this, will use the M
plural of tho word or spoik of "a complice- M
tlon of dlsoases," Instead ot "a complicated M

cart load ot diplomas and a yard string ot fl
