$1,000,000 SUIT SPEEDED UP
Girl Probably Will Know Yerdict in
Case Before Night.
NEW TORK, June 16. Before night
octogenarian John Manning will
know whether his admitted Jilting of
pretty twenty eight year old Honora
May O'Brien will cost him the 1.-
000,000 which the plaintiff insists may
mend her shattered sensibilities.
The summing up occupied the morn
Ing sessions of court before Justice
Cropsey. It closed a case which for
speed In handling has "beaten any
thing of a like nature :n New York's
court records.
The elghty-four-year-old defendant
appeared In court today almost
Jaunty after his spirited word fencing
throughout last night's session. He
had admitted that much or the palsy
with which his hands seemed aken.
and much of his halting walk was
assumed, simply because he hsd been
told that the Jury might be imprest ed
with the contrast between fresh, vig
orous, rosy,cheeked Honora May
O'Brien and his own decrepit old age.
Shews Mental Clearness.
Thla 'admission out of the way.
Manning gave the cross-examlng law
yer a vivid exhibition of his clear
ness of mind and native shrewdness,
tinctured with 'a. quaint hum.r.
Attorney BaldWln. for Mlsi
O'Brien, went at the witness ham
frankly to admit that the didn't con
sider himself a feeble old man and
that he "had chased a photographer
half a block and smashed him ucross
the back with a cane."
Mannlg confessed he had Kissed
th fair defendant, "but not many
times as it was a sin to kiss girls
and get them thelnklnx of ine.
After The Card Gaiae.
He laughed in humorous chuckle
Inrelatlng the game of euchre In
the Manning home when he and
Honora May playfully put the slsk.;s
as possession of himself and "May
won me," as he expressed It.
Throughout the cross-examination
he carefully defended Miss O'Brien's
truthfulness, but slwsjs Insisted he
began to get suspicious that the
O'Briens. Honora and her brother,
were trying to "Inveigle him into
marriage.
The millionaire laughed heartily In
describing this attempt to "Inveigle."
"After we played cards one night.
Miss O'Brien got down and unbuckled
my shoes I said. "I don't want you
to do that, it Isn't nice'
"She ssld she wanted to show me
what she could do for me, and what a
comfort she could be to me. Then she
swirled her skirts about me and
swamped me, throwing me down on
the sofa. I told her that was wicked
land not to do It again, that It wasn t
nice. She laughed and turned on her
heef
Calls Her Mereeaary.
Pointing to Miss O'Brien as a mer
eenary woman, eager to "sully the
holy bonds of matrimony by uniting
her ) outturn body witn tne witnerea
body of an old man," Martin W. Lit
tleton, Mannlng'a lawyer, today de
manded that the Jury deny Miss
O'Brien any remuneration.
"There was no love." he said. "She
has admitted It. Her brother, even be
fore the marriage was to have taken
place, consulted a lawyer regarding a
settlement."

baseball men have the nerve to "carry

nil and skies dark. So don't look for
any more Federal leagues In the near
future.
The fight between "Muggsy" Mc-

be to the finish. It has been only for
a ear that Tener has appeared to be

of the snarling magnates of (he Na
