New York Paper to Pay for a Prema ture Publication. The New York World must pay $5,000 to Miss Harriet Monroe, who wrote tlie ode for the opening of the Columbian World's imposition at Chicago in October, 16112, for having prematurely published the poem in violation of her common law rights in tlie manuscript. When the World obtained possession of an advance copy of tlie ode, the fact ciiiiiii to the knowledge of Miss Monroe tnd she lelegt.iplied the paper a warning not lo publish. The editor responded, "we will take our chances," and the publication was made. Suit was brought by Miss Monroe to recover damnges. Defense was made that thecopjriglit law of tlieUiiited States bail superseded the common law on the subject, and that undent no punitive dam ages could be collected. The circuit court of the United States for the Southern district of New York held otherwise, and a vei diet, in ravor of Miss Monroe, Tor Sii.OOO was returned. Tlie case went to the circuit court of appeals, when tlie Judgment below was affirmed. Then the World endeavored to bring the case to the Supreme Court of the United States, 'on tlie ground that questions arising under the constitution of the United States were involved. Hut, said Mr. Justice Gray, announcing the opinion or the court, it lias been held in many cases that that point must be raised by the plnintirf and not the de fendant. The decice of the court of ap peals w as final, and the writ of error must be dismissed. MRS. TOMLINSON SUES. Widow of the Fenclble Officer Begins Suit for His Death. (Special to The- Times.)
