$5,000 FOR A POEM.
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bail superseded the common law on the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.
