E-,' " The trill of the case of Mtl Lydla n Wharton against the executors of the ? estate of the late Jacob Snyder will K*i . probably come to It* ooncluilon this r afternoon. Yesterday at noon, the teatlmony was all In, and In the afternoon I' . Colonel Robert White and Mr. Henry p, ' M. Russell opened for the plaintiff and p. defense, respectively. This morning arfl' ruments will be- continued for the ft plaintiff by Messrs. W. P. Hubbard jij"- and O. R. C. Allen, and for the defense p , by General Alfred Caldwell. It Is ; thought the Jury will have the case In Uy their hands In the afternoon. "Colon?i White began his speech to the f jury In the afternoon anil occupied I about two hours In it! delivery. He I,- showed a complete mastery 01 me vuoe g as it has been built up in the course of hi. the trial during1 the past week, and confv;. tended with force and eloquence ti that the executors of Jacob Snyder's IC estate ought to be compelled by this g; Jtyy In Its -verdict to provide for his ' housekeeper, Mrs. Wharton, -as he re| peatedty and often aaid to many peril aons before his depth, (hat he would do. [: In his peroration the speaker was eloquence itself and s^ld that he felt sure Jv Mr. 8oyder would turn in bis grave If ft ., he knew in what manner his wishes kt; were being disregarded by the execuv> tors of his will In their refusal to recognise the claims advanced by1, the plaintiff in this case. In his opening in behalf of the defense, Mr. Russell sdld that juries fy should guard carefully in verdicts af' fecting the money of deceased persons. Sentiment should not enter into the ease; until the plaintiff could show ^reason for.a verdict based upon the ahnnid h? no verdict bf' UIVtM, UVU9 Iff' ?, - _ ^ ' In her favor. The plaintiff*# attorneys aeera to forget, aald the apeaker, that fA Mrs. Wharton was given a certain aura " ?ach week during He. Snyder's life f time, and that what waa left over was RE her compensation. But they are trying to recover on an allegation that he waa !> to provide for her after hla death to the. extent of $18 a week during her lifetime. This, the papers in the caae do not contemplate: they speak only of | services rendered by lira. Wharton during Mr. Snyder's lifetime. Several ; V stories have been told on the witness stand In this trial. John Wharton and r. Mrs. Lowe tell of a contract by Mr. k: Snyder to provide for Mrs. Wharton; ^ the other wltnesaea didn't know of auch P a contract. The speaker believed Mr. Snyder referred to what he was <o do , top Mra. Wharton during hla lifetime, not after his death. The other wit& nessea only said that Mr. Snyder apoke nt nrnvldlns for Mrs. Wharton In his will, not speaking of any contract. | Continuing. Mr. Russell spoke of -the fending of wills under law and said ^ th? testator has entire control until his r death and can changevthe will at dlsf" cretion. Mrs. Wharton, he said, left the matter entirely with Mr. Snyder, to do or not to do as he would decide. Seven witnesses, in the course of this trial, told, of what Mrs. Wharton had b -said regarding her arrangement with Mr. Snyder. Is Mrs. Wharton to overf> ride these seven witnesses? Inquired the t> speaker. To all o^ these witnesses, she said practically the same thing; she was to take caro of the hous**, being I; given $25 a week, and all that remained was hers, "her compensation," added Mr. Russell. At this point there t: . was a tilt between Messrs. Russell and Hubbard, the latter stating his belief that the witnesses had not used the word "compensation." If these seven , witnesses are believed,said Mr. Rugsell, the Jury cannot award Mrs. Wharton one cent. ** " ??' oAnniudftfl tohor Air. ifUBHCll iiuu nui vuuwiiR... .? JS court adjourned for the day.
