I'losing Argument on the Bleecker Street
Railroad Lease.
H is evident that great interest Is folt In tbe suit of
Do Witt C. Taylor against Jay Gould and others, the
trial of which was resumed yesterday before Judge
Barrett, tn Supreme Court, Circuit, Judging from the
large crowd in attendance. Among the throng were
many notable Wall street operators, to some of whom
the recital of tbe largo operations in gold on the mem
orable Black Friday was, no doubt, like the memory of
a troubled dream. To tbe ordinary listener, unused to
the gigantic operations of our great money mart, the
flippancy wtth which transactions amounting to millions
of dollars are mentioned must bo rather startHug.
llr. Albert Speyers, the broker who had already occupied
the witness chair for two days, was again called
to the stand and his cross-examination resumed. He
b gan by stating that be wanted to make a correction.
He said yesterday that he had not seen Gould privately
since Bluck Friday; he now remombered having
seen him on two separate occasions. His crossexaminaUon
was continued in relation to the rcpudia

Mr Beach objected to the materiality of this testimony.
Mr. Sullivan said bis object was to provo that
Gould's intention was to send tbie man out of the
country to keep his testimony out of the various suits
for claims pressing on Gould; tbero being also a controversy
between the witness and Gould as to who
should bear the immense load.
In reply to further questions ol Mr. Sullivan, witness
said Mr. Gould offered htm $20,000 lor the year; witness

said ho didn't owe tjiem; he accepted tho ofTer, got
$10,000 and tho rust was remitted to him; the interview
was held at the Erie office, by Invitation of Mr.
Gould; wbejt he was getting his orders Irom Fisk on
Black Friday morning, and Smith k ,Giuld were
present; they were not in Heath's business office, but
in a private room.
Charles C.'Alton, called for tho plaintiff, lifted up his
right hand and "affirmed."
Mr. Beach inquired whether the witness had any
conscientious objection to being sworn on the Bible.
Mr. Allen said he had none.
Mr. Shearman then insisted that the witness must be
worn either on the Bible or with uplifted baud. "In
presence ol the ever living God."
Mr. Allen made no dilllcglty of being sworn on the

Mr. Beach?Oh, 1 wouldn't be delicate. (Laughter.)
Hcsunting, witness said that on his arrival he reported
the market to Fisk, Gould Ac Hatch; he told
theiu thai gold was at 150; during the day he saw Mr.
Speyors come into the private oltice and report to Fi-k
that ho had made such and such purchases; Fisk
stepped over to Mr. Gould, who was lying on tue sola,
and alter speaking to him lor a lew mluutcs, returned
to Mr. Speyers and told him to go on buying;
he asked * Mr. Fisk w hoi her be had sent

Tho Court here adjourned.
In October, 1975, two suits were brought in the
United States District Court by the United States
against Messrs. H. 0. Claliln k Co. to recovor $910,000
and $560,000 Tor alleged undervaluations of imported
goods and also for penalties provided for by tho statute
of 1S66. A demurrer was filed by tbe defence to the
flfi/'lirulinna in I.nlh atlitfl aitif tlx* nmnta me.ln warn
e'aborutely argued a lew week* ago before Judge
Blatcbford, who ha* Just reudere?l his decision. The
point* made by the dafeme were four in number, the
most important being that all tbe counts were Insufficient
because It was not charged In any of t?^rn that
defendants bad any actual intent todolrsud tbe United
Male*; that all the counts based on double sales were
bad because section 2 ol the nil ol March l*tU. was
rcpoaled by section 4 ol tho act ol July IK. lKtMi- that
tbe act of 1823 is repealed by the act ol 18M, ami that
tbe Ones ot Irom g.ai to f.'., (too in each rase of undervaluation
claunod under the act of l?6tl caunot be conatdered
s ctvll remedy. It was further claimed that
several counts in the second declaration were bad as
based on the act of 1823 and Including
matter occurring since the Revised Statutes were
+ parsed, that all tho counts lor doable vsluo were bad
because the second section ol tho act ol 1823 was repealed
by tbn lo?rth se tlunoi b set ol July, 18o?;

uod intent. Judge Hlalcbford suataiucd the demurrer,
aud below la given an epitome of hie decision:
It was quite clear that the second section o( the act
or March, 1 >>23, roust be retarded aa having been repealed
by the Reviled Statutes. The effect ol such
repeal Is to destroy tbe right of the plaintiff to rcoover
tinder the second section In respect of any actt
done alter the enactment ol the Keriaed
bltiulcs Tbe question ansas, whether the sec uU
section of the act of 1823, on which tho counts
lor doublo the value of tbe Imported goods are founded,
was In lorce at tho time ol the enactment of the Revised
stXntes, or whether it had been superseded and
Utually repealed by the fourth Mellon of the act of
jal- -.S?? A* a portion of the act or 1823 la emoraced
IB,'action 3.0W or the Revised Statutes. and aa the pror'sion*
ot the aaoond acetion ol that aot are not contained
in the Kenned Statutes, and ua those provisions
i were general and permanent m thi-ir nature, it loliowa,
by section 5,AM. that Congress has declared that the
proV:8lons of the second section ol the act of 18*23 were
repealed or superseded hy a subsequent act. Tne force
ol the Legislative declaration contained in section A.AM
of the Revised Statutes in res|>eci to this suhjet t bus
been recognized by the Supri me Court in two cases.
The question prcseuted as to whether causes of action
falling within tbo terms ol the second section ol the
act of 18*23 aud which arose prior to the ena< imeul of
the Kovised Statutes on the '2'2d June, IS .'4, can be
prosecuted on aud alter the latter dute has Uvreloforo
been ruled b.v me in lovor of uoli prosecution, ou the
ground that the supreme Court had held that the act of
1S66 did not rejieal tbo second section ol tha Act of 18*23.
But the views abttve preS'-nied as to the cOcct of section
5,AM of the IteviBed statutes In tho particulars
referred to were not as lully conwtrli.rsari
l?u thflV llttVA I?P*?I1 llAro II fYtllskt*,* that
alt (be odd numbered counts in both of tbo declarations |
must Iks bold bud. As tbo even numbered counts in
suit No. 1, and counts 2, 4 and 0 iu suit No. 2, aro
lonnded on Section 4, Act or lttttt), while counts 8, ID,
12 and 14 in suit No. 2 arc founded on Section 3.082 of
the Itevised Statutes, these are substantially identical.
Moreover, this Is an aclluu lor debt and in each of tho
even numbered counts the plnintifls claim the sum of
$5,000 as a debt. But tne statute does not Impose a
penalty or fine of $5,000, or ol any other definite sura,
or ol any sum which can be reduced to a certainty.
Besides the forleliure ol tho offending merchandise
the only penalty imposed Is, that the otfonder shall bo
fined in a sum not exceeding $5,000, nor less than $50,
or bo imprisoned lor any term not exceeding two years,
or both. This line canuo: be recovered in a civil
action, but only alter a conviction on a trial for a
crime as a punishment lor which the Court may inflict
imprisonment, with or Without a tine. No such imprisonment
can be inflicted as the result of a civil uction.
This Is an action ol debt and In each of the oven uuiuberi'd
counts the plainlitls claim $5,0t.'0 as n debt. There
can be no verdict lor auv detinue sum. Debt
lies only whero a sutn certain is duo to the plalntllT, or,
a sum which can be reduced to a certainty, so as to
form a basis of a verdict iu lavor of the plaintiff lor
u sum certain. It proves that ail tho eveu numbered
counts are hud. The demurrers aro sustained. The
decision is final In the Courts here, and can only be
reviewed by the Supreme Court ol the United Slates.
It appears that- some timo since Mr. E. I* Daven- I
pprt, the Brutus or the hour, became indebted to Fred- ]
crick C. T. Robinson, another actor, in the sum of
$000. On the 6th of January last Mr. Itobinson, as
appears by the papers in proceedings hereafter referred
to, sent a letter, dated trom the Uuion Square Theatre,
to Mr. Davenport, In which ho retniuds the latter that
the money was owing more than two years aud ought
to have been paid long ago. On the 8ih of the samo
month Mr. Davenport repl ed in a Dote whioh smacks
somewhat ot the days ol Fox and Sheridan. It reads
as lollows:?
Mv Dkab R?Your note Is at hand, and, believe me, the I
content- bare surprised alarmed ami vexed me, because I
knew not of any such fact, my trusty treasurer, .Mr. Thompson
ibs in many other cases), having kept rat* in utter Iguorance
of the same. Surptlscd me to think you, who were
ever so prompt to collect, should have allowed such a debt 1
to have accrued without saying one word to the supposed
manager; alarmed uie because I don't know how
many more of like nature may come to me.
In reply to your question, I am free to auswer
"yea." I do think It quite time. 4c.. bat there I am
grounded. Were I to present to you the misery and annoyance
L have (for those same twu years experienced you

family under the pressure (and at a fearful rate or Interest,
too, it was d-uie >. and even here in -Yew Yurie I have been
forced to anticipate no mean amount to ennble ma to get
along. My teturn to Philadelphia after my dire failure as

like the rats of Egypt, each demanding aud expecting lull

threatening all sorts ol pressure if I did nut meet their demands

th nk <:od It was either their good feeling at the eleventh

that gave mo temporary relief. I can only say at present
it will be impossible for me to do anything whatever.
1 have suggested to my lawyer to call in the accounts
of all my creditors and see if I can make some compromise
with them; but neither by coaxing or threatening
can tlio accounts be obtained trom Mr. Thompson, so that
really I do uot know how I stand, ami to whom or liuw

Six dttys later than the dale of the foregoing letter,
Mr. Robinson .sends a rejoinder, in winch ho
aays:?*'1 must beg you will make toino immediate
arrangements lor payment, or I shall be compclleu
to redeem my character tor 'prompt eoilec- |

Davenport inlorms Mr. Robinson that il his feelings

On the 7th of the present month it appears Mr. Hobin.-ou
set about e-iublisbmg his character for prompt
payment by commencing a suit in the Marine Court
lor the recovery of tho amount ol his claim. In the
meantime, ami wmle the suit was still pending, lue
Iricuds ol Mr. Duveuport presented him a gorgeous
suit ol armor, to tie worn by nlm in the play ol "Julius
Csesar" at Doom's Theatre. This suit ol armor, alleged
to be worih (oUU, attracted tbu attention ol Mr. Kobluson,
and especially tho announcement that Mr. Davcn- I
port was about to carry it with bim in order to repeat
the scenes ol the lieldol Phihppi in the Centennial City
on the 3d ol April next. The plainlill in the suit, tailing
to secure admission to Booth's Theatre to have an
altachmeul executed aguinst the armor ol Drums, bad
his counsel apply to the Court lor an injuuciioii restraining
Brutus, not from going to Hn'adulpbiu in
person, out Irom canyiug his armor with bun. This
armor. Mr. Robinson and his counsel assert, is all they
hope to Becurs in satisfaction of auy Judgment which
they may obtain, and they leur if it gels to Philadelphia
thai is the last they shall see of It. Yesterday,
in ChaiuUors of the M rine Court, before Judge
McAdain, Mr. Daveuport appeared by counsel to ask
for a dissolution ol this injunction. Tb.s motion was
made on tnc ground that the tacts were insuilicient to
sustain the injunction, there being no evidcuce that
Mr. Duveuport, in being aooul to rcicove the armor to
Philadelphia, intended thereby to delraud the plaintill.
This poiut Judge McAdaiu thought well taken,
and said unless prool of the iuteut to defraud was produced
ho wouiu bo compel.ed to dissolve the injunc
lion. Leaving the case in this condition the Court adjourned
lor the day, and unless ite required proof lie
furnished tins morning uo doubt Judge McAdam will
dissolve the injunction, and leave the armor of Brutus

tliut the oiler hud been declined; that bo now made another

the debts were greater now th in at auy other previous
time; that the proposed lease guarantees the payment
of all the indebtedness, no matter how much, and lurthor
guaranti ed a dividend ol ono and a hull per cent

to the |iro|Mtaed lease. lie contended that the Ulccckcr

that there was no evidence belore the Court to show

able to keep their covenant*.
Mr. John Scribner, Jr., counsel for the Bleeckor
Street Railroad Company, next made a lengthy argument
being mainly an enlargement of tbe point* presented
In bis opening argument on Wednesday. He
contended that there could be no possible legal obstacle
to the execution ol the proposed lease, and that the
{lower to make such leaso was amply act forth In the
acts of 1913 and 191ft having rokrence specifically to the
Blcer kcr Street Railroad In the Reneral Railroad act
of 18j0 and In an act of 1930 delegating such power to
railroad corporations. He dwelt upon the advantages
which he claimed would accrue to tbe Bleecker Street
Railroad by the grantiDg of the leaso. In conclusion,
be passed some pretty severe criticisms upon the receiver's
conduct ol the road, and also carefully
analvsod the recent answer submitted by tho receiver
In the Harlowc and distant suits.
Mr. Kowler, counsel lor tho receiver, concluded the
argument. tic deiemled the latter from the attacks or I
