One of the Herrlch brothers, whose restaurant
at 141 Division street, which Is frequented
by unorthodox Jews, the polioe olosed on Bun
day night, when the day of atonement began.
' because It had been stoned by the orthodox lor
keeping open, told Acting Captain Brown ot
tha Madison street station later that he would
opea the plaoe In the morning.
"There wiU surely be mere trouble then,"
aid the Captain, who thoroughly understands
bis dlstrlot.
"I'm running a legitimate business." said
Herrloh. "and nobody has any right to Inter

"That's true." aald the Captain. "If you
want to keep open you've got the right to. lo
ahead and I'll see that you are protected."
. Early yesterday mornlngta sign appeared in
front of the Division street rlaoe aunounolng
that it would be open for customers. Jewish
or Gentile, all day, at the usual prices. Doubt
less the sign would not havo lasted long but for

ijlii J J of Division street at the point where the . res
taurant stands forms a triangle. At all the cor
ners of the open space were gathered the angry
orthodox Jews. Presently three young men
pushed through the crowd and advanced to
ward the restaurant, only to be stooped by the
police, who asked them what they wanted.
"Going to Horrlchs'.to eat." they said.
'. Amid hoots and threats from the crowd they
entered the restaurant. Others followed them,
nearly all being young men. When the first
rnsu to finish his meal came out there was a
great outburst from the crowd.
"Accursed eater of pig's flesh I" shouted a
gray-bearded patriarch, "You are shame to
your race"
"He has no race," called out another man.
"He Is an outcast, not fit to live."
"Kill the outcast 1" cried a hundred voices.
Turning white, the man ran for a street car.
A woman whom he passed struck him sav
agely in the face and the crowd surged for
ward; alter him and boarded the car. causing
a panlo among the passengers, but the police
pulled them off and the fugitive cot away.
Another customer of the restaurant was pur
sued into a house near by, whence he es
caped over the rear fence. Meantime the po
lice, in attending to these matters, had left
the front door of the restaurant temporarily
unguarded, and the mob rushed in. They
overturned tables, smashed dishes and threw
crockery at the proprietors. -
Jacob Cohen of 72 BufTolk street was
sitting at a table wearing a brand-new silk
pat and a suit of clothes only less new. Ills
hat was smashed over his eyes and scolding
not.' tea was poured down his neok. Three
religious enthusiasts were jumping upon
I Jacob's jroatrate form when the police
cleared tin place with clubs. Jacob Ouensteln.
18 years old. of 25 Ludlow street, denounced
Policeman Baker In a speech for interfering
against orthodoxy, and when his remarks be
oame too intemperate he was arrested. Seven
other men were arrested about the same time
charged with osxault and rioting.
A little after noon there was another nttack
on the restaurant, ' -h was beaten back by
the police, and eigat more prisoners were
bagged. One of these was Morris Smith, a
16-year-old boy, who was accused of assault
by Jacob Blank. Blank came out of the res
taurant ob a wheel and got away before the
crowd oould catch him. but some of the men
shouted after him:
. "There goes one of the outcasts. .Stop
him I'
From the doors of an improvised synagogue
on Canal street a number of Jewish boys were
coming. They rushed upon Blank, threw
him from his wheel, and were pummelling
him when the polio arrived. He Dointed
out young Smith as the ringleader. In sex
Market Court, however, the boy proved nn
alibi, and was discharged. All the other pris
oners were fined $9 each for disorderly con
duet. Many of them pleaded their religion
as justification.
Reunion doesn't mean Interfering with
Others." said Magistrate Braun. "Let thin be
a lesson In toleration to you."
The orthodox Jews are very bitter against
the Heriiches and declare that they will drive
the restaurant away, while the socialistic
Jews declare tholr intention of supporting it
loyally. The police think that the plaoe is
likely to be a centre of trouble for some time
to come. ,
. Another Tom Klppur case which came up
In Essex Market Court was that of Isaac Wolf.
driver ot an toe wagon, who was accused of as
sault by Max Flrestefn of 04 Pitt street As
evidence of the assault Flresteln shows a long
scalp wound made, he says, by Wolf's ice tongs.
It appears that while Wolf was driving his Tee
wagon through Allen street on Sunday night
Flresteln stopped him and called out:
"Stop working on the Day of Atonement and
obey toe law."
. "Mind your own business on the Day of
Atonement." retorted the other.
Flreeteln tried to climb into the wagon, and
there was a fight, resulting in the soalp wound
and the arrest. Wolf was held for examina

walked to Central Vark. it being forbidden to
sunt to drive or ride during the day.
One of the orthodox customs is to give a

Borah wandered Into the monkeythouse. and
the first osge he came to was that of John L.
Sullivan, the oldest simian in the Zoo. a big
fellow.who has a cage by himself because of
his ugly temper.
John L. thrust his paw through the bars of
his cage as the Russian walked up to the rail
ing, and blinked his eyes at the visitor In a
mute appeal for some of the things he had
been accustomed to receive from visitors.
The Russian took from his pocket the Yom
Klppur coin he had Intended to use to cleuu
his conscience and held It out to the monkey,
which Immediately seized It under the im
pression that it was a new kind of edible und
Quickly transferred It to his mouth.
iMUoeman Uoughlln was; nearby and saw
. the penny going Into the monkey's mouth.
He arrested Borch when be saw John L. going
through contortions that showed he had great
difficulty in swsllowing something. The ani
mal gasped and stretched his neok and put
one of Jus paws Into his mouth, as though In
pain. In about a minute he apparently suc
ceeded In swallowing the coin and was re
lieved for a short tims.
Boon, however, he began to press his paws
on his abdomen and rolled about ou the floor
ot hi cage, evidently disturbed by the pres
ence of the coin in his stomach.
The prisoner was taken to the Arsenal.
Where Sergeant Dillon sought to learn the
fan's motive for giving money to the animal.
The prisoner could not talk English, so was
taken on a charge of disorderly conduct to the
Yorkvllle Court, where he explained through
an Interpreter that ho gave the coin in accord
ance with the Yom Klppur custom. Magis
trate Crane cautioned him to look up the laws
of this country and discharged him.
In Uis meantime Superintendent Smith of
the Park coo had been Informed of the condi
tion ot one of his pets, and, going to the mon
key house, he found John L. undergoing the
regret that follows dining on Indigestible ar
ticles. Mr. Smith ooncooted a draught which
he Induced the monkey to take to relieve the
pain. The superintendent said there was noth

Millionaire Coin Appeals from the Order
His Betrothed Obtained.
The appeal of William P. Coles, a reputed
millionaire, from an order made by the City
Court requiring him to furnish a further bill
of particulars of his charges set up in defence
ot an action which has been brought against
him by Miss Blanohe A. Burnell of Boston to
recover $60,000 damages for breach of promise
of marriage, was heard yesterday by the
General Term of the City Court
It was in August. 1807. that these young
people first met at Lake Qeorge. They soon
became engaged. The wedding day was
Sxed tor Nov. 23 last The young woman,
with her mother, came to this city to reside,
at the request of Mr. Coles, so that all ar
rangements for the welding could be com
pleted here. Not long after Coles's return to
the city he sent Miss Burnell a note saying
that according to certain facta that had come
to his knowledge from Boston, he had been
deceivedlby her. and that it was best for both
that they should not meet again. Miss Burnell
wrote Insisting upon on explanation. He re
plied that, he did not wish to go into details,
that thei hasty engagement on so short an
acquaintance was a sad mistake, and that he
asked her to release him from his promise.
She declined to do so. and brought suit. In
answer to her complaint he charged her with
having been guilty of "bad and Immoral con
duct." Miss Burnell declared that this charge was
false and malicious. The Court directed iilm to
furnish her with a bill of particulars as to the
times and places of her alleged improper con
duct, but when he did so he simply amplified
his statements set up in his answer. The
Court held that this was not sufficient, and
that he should detail with particularity the
charges that he hod made against the young
woman, so that she might be apprised of what
to meet on tho trial of the action. From this
order for a further bill of particulars Mr.
Coles took an appeal. The Court reserved decision.

One of the Court's First Duties WIU Be to
Formulate Utiles for Procedure Under
tbe Bankruptcy Law A Case of Interest
to Creditors of Banks That Have Palled.
Wassiqto-, Sept. 20. The Supreme Conr
of the United Btateawlll reassemble a fortnight
hence and enter upon the work of the October
term. 1808. One of the first and most Im
portant things it will have to do will be to for
mulate rules for procedure under the Bsnk
ruptoy law, passed shortly before the adjourn
ment of Congress In the early summer. That
work was committed to the Supreme Court by
the terms of the act, and until these rules shall
be promulgated the lower courts are doing lit
tle or nothing In the way ot executing the law.
Filing of applications to be adjudged bank
rupt is about all that Is being done. Aa tho
Supreme Court was In recess at the time tho
law was passed, nothing has been accomplished
In the way of preparing the rules, and it Is in
evitable that some little time must elapse be
fore they can be put Into ehape.
One of the cases that will come up for discus
slon early lu the term Is of particular interest
and Importance to creditors of failed national
banks. Involving, as It does, the construction
of the rule for the distribution of dividends to
those creditors fortunate enough to possess
collateral for their debts. The present rule la
held by Mr. Dawes, Comptroller ot the Cur
rency, as It was by his predecessor, Mr. J. H.
Eckels, to be unfair and Inequitable, and both
have interested themselves in securing a re
versal. If possible, by the Suprome Court.
The controversy out ot which the litigation
arose was between the National Bank of Jack
sonville and T. B. Merrill, receiver of the First
National Bank of Palatka, The Jacksonville
bank was a creditor of the Palatka bank for
one class of indebtedness, consisting of sundry
drafts, amounting to $6,010, and for another
class ot Indebtedness, consisting of certificates
of deposit, leans and interest, amounting to
flO.Otfi making a total of $10,103. on July 17.
1891. The Jacksonville bank held certain col
lateral to secure the Indebtedness ot $10,003.
and collected a portion of it after the Insolvency
of the Palatka bank, leaving a balance dneof
$4,040. The receiver and Comptroller of tho
Cu r rency allowed the appellee dividends on this
balance and dividends on tho unsecured In
debtedness, but refused to allow dividends on
the total indebtedness of 110.103 from the date
of Insolvency. The Jacksonville bank con
tended that the receiver should have allowed
It to prove its entire olaim of $10,103, ana
should have received pro rata dividends on the
entire amount thereof
Similar controversies arose at the time of the
failure of the Fidelity National Bank of Cin
cinnati, between Armstrong, receiver, and the
American Exchange and Chemical banks.
Judge Sage, who has just retired from the
bench, decided that tbe oreditor banks were
entitled to dividends out of the assets ot the
failed bank only upon the balance remaining
after they had disposed of the collateral held to
secure their claims. But upon appeal the Cir
cuit Court of Appeals, consisting of Justice
Brown and Judges Lurton and Taft reversed
Judge Sage and permitted the creditor banks
to prove their claims without regard to the col
lateral held. Judge Taft speaking for the
court, asks In this opinion i
"Shall creditors of sn Insolvent national
bank. In proving their claims, be required to
allow any credit for collections from collateral
made subsequent to the declared insolvency
and before proof of claim t "
This question is answsred in the negative,
the court saying:
" The great weight of authority In England
and in this country is strongly opposed to the
view that a creditor with collateral shsll be
thereby deprived of the right to prove for his
full claim against an insolvent estate."
This has since been the general rule in this
country, and the ease at bsr was disposed of In
the lower courts, upon its authority, ad
versely to the receiver. By direction of the
Comptroller. Mr. Merrill appealed to tho Su
premo Court and the Department of Justice
may be asked to Intervene and be heard by ar
gument or brief. The objection of the Comp
troller to the law as It now stands Is that it
works injustice to the injured creditors ot a
failed bank. By its operation a creditor hold
ing security for a part of his debt, by securing
dividends based upon the whole amount of tho
claim, might receive payment In full, while
others would receive only a small proportion of
their claims.
EEROM AN PLEADS ron bcmabweb.
Weak from the Beating He Received, He
Yet Remembers Tom Klppnr.
A month ago Abraham Bergman, a tailor
of 65 Moore street, Williamsburg, got Into a
dispute with John Sohaefer,' a neighbor, and

When Magistrate Lemon called the case again
yesterday. Bergman stepped up to the bar
and In a weak voice said he had no desire to
have Schacfor punished.
"He assaulted me brutally." said Bergman,
"but still I forgh s him and respectfully ask you
to let him go,
"Why should I let him go after he has as
saulted you as he did?" replied Magistrate
Lemon. "No. sir. This case goes on, snd if
he Is guilty he'll go to the penitentiary."
' But, yonr Honor." exclaimed Bergman,
'do please let him go this once. This Is Yom
Klppur. or the Day of Atonement.bnd on this
day we Jews forgive those who have wronged
"If that's the oase. I'll do It." said the Magis

"it's lucky for you that this is the Day of
Atonement. . If It hadn'tSbeen, you would have
gone to the penitentiary?'
