Late to-night the archbishop's phys? icians said that his chances of surviv? ing the night were slender. When Drs. LaPlace and Andrews left the sii k room early in the night, they stated that Archbishop Ryan's condi? tion was very much depressed. "He is very weak and his pulse flickers," I hey stated, "lie was still able to con? verse with us, but his speech is not nearly so Ituent as in the afternoon when he was talking with Cardinal Gibbons! Cardinal Gibbons made two visits to the dying prelate to-nay. On the first visit the archbishop's eyes were closed and the cardinal placed his hand j I gently on his head saying. "Your grace j does not know me?" "After forty-tour years I know every tone of Your Eminence's voice, and now 1 am. as I evct have been, profoundly! convinced (hat you arc tlie instrument of Providence for iho promotion of every good tiling for our church and country," replied the archbishop, with? out opening his eyes. During the con? versation the archbishop said: "If we keep our country conservative, no coun? try will be as great as this. No ooun tfl has such elements of greatness as this.*' Following his second visit. Cardinal Gibbons stated in an interview: "The archbishop's mind b; still perfectly cloar. i need not sny how much I have been edified by bis beautiful, pious sentiments, rejoicing in the ad? vancement of religion in this Country and saying that the hopes and stability of tills nation depend upon the perma? nence of piir,religious rnd moral princi? ple-. The archbishop said: Mf this na? tion is to last, it must be governed by the !?ame principles in the. future as in the past.' lie expressed hope Pitt G?d will bless our much beloved coun? try."

February 1.?At tho wod ; ding reception of Miss Vivien Could j and Baron Docles on February 7. it Is ' planned to announce the cngaponicnt ; of Jay Gould, youngest son of George Gould, and Miss Anna Douglas Gra ; ham. of Xo. 1"? West Sixty-.seventh ' Street The wedding will take place in June. Young Gould's tlancee is the daugh? ter of Mrs Hubert Vos. wife of the i famous portrait pain tor. By marrying Miss Graham, Jay Could goes his sis? ter om? better, and marries Into a royal family instead of mere nobility. The royal family in question is not now a ! relgninj; family. It is the royal fum , lly of Hawaii. Mrs. Vos, Miss Gra 1 ham's mother, was before she mar j ried Douglas Graham, the Princess Kaikilanl. The onttast'inciit of Jay Gould and Miss Graham will come na a surprise to liny but intimate friends of the | two families because it was not Known to society at large that an engage? ment existed, although it has been gossip for some mouths that young Gould was particularly attentive to her. Sister Itcapoiiglhlc for the Ubhinuce. The prospect 1 vo Lady Dccles is said to be responsible for the new romance In the Gould family, this last being the third to engross public attention with? in a year, the romance? beginning with the betrothal <>t the eldest daughter of the family, Majoric, n??w Mr?. An? thony J. Drcxeli, Jr. When the Actors' Fair tool place at one of the booths there wa?: a bevy of the prettiest of the younger pliis in Now York society. At this booth was Miss Vivlveh Gould, and. of course, her brother became one of tho patrons and bought largely of what was on I sale there. Among those hcipiiur Miss Gould to I dispose of articles was Miss Graham, jolliers in attendance at this booth j were Miss lone Page and Miss Angeli? ca Schuyler Brown, ill noted in New ! York society for wit and beauty. On j the Hist night of the fair, .'ay Gould j met all of those young women, but . having met them all. he had eyes thereafter for Miss Graham alone. 1 Mr. Gould bought whatever Miss Gra? ham offered for sale, and did not hag? gle about the price either. While the fair lusted his attentions to the daugh? ter of Hie Hawaiian princess and the weaity Hawaiian planter and step? daughter to tho famous 1 lolland-Amer? ican artist were the talk of people at j tending the fair. Voiins: <?osilil Prospers lu Wooing. When the fair was ovo-, .lay Gould; who hitherto hud been le arl-whole und fancy free, became more attentive than ever, and wherever Miss Graham was to be found, .lay Gould was not far away. Soon this ardent wooing was rewarded. and when Miss Vivian Gould's engagement to Lord Docles was made public, .lay Gould let the members of hin family know of his at? tachment. When Jay Gould had told his family that he Intended to marry, it was de? cided that no announcement of the fact be made public, because there was no desire t<> draw the limelight away from I he oldest unmarried sister. After a conference of the families of those con- I corned, tho decision was reached that society should not be taken into the] confidence of the young people until the Decles-G??Td nuptials were a thing of the past. But soon people who knew Jay Gould weil began to w?hd?r why It was tbat every afternoon, promptly at r> o'clock, be was Xo be seen going Into No. 15 West .Sixty-fourth Street, one of tbe bent of the uptown apartment houses. Then the news of the engagement leaked out. I When a reporter railed at the home I of Miss Graham, word was sent down by a servant that none of the family i could be seen. When Miss Marjotio Whit lock, ti cousin of .Miss Graham and daughter oT Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Morris Whltlockj of IM West Twelfth Stroet, was asked about the engage? ment, she was much surprised that anybody outside tho family connections knew anything about it. .She said she was not the proper person to discuss the matter publicly. This is tb.e second time that day Gould has been reported engaged. Last May It was said In Paris tbat he was to marry Mrs. Per:trice Blanche Brunei' Godfrey, of Davenport, Ind.. formerly the wife of Arthur YV. Godfrey, a wealthy lumber merchant of r>oston. hater Mrs. Godfrey dented that there was any foundation for this rumor, lie's World Champion nt Tetnil*. In addition to being son of one of tho wealthiest men in America. Jay Gould has a fame nil bis own. He la tlie nrnatUor tennis champion of the world. He began his career as a tennis player when a student at Columbia Uni? versity. A few years imo he went to England to play the crack amateur;; of that country, and his remarkable vic? tories drew the attention of the whole athletic world to him. In addition to his tennis playing, ho Is a tine polo player and an oarsman of no mean ability. Miss Graham inherited a large for? tune from her father.

February 1.?A recent verdict of $33,910 in favor of Springs & ?!o . .Now Yoi k cotton brokers, against Hanover National Hank of Now York in set aslile an.i :?. new trial ordered In an opinion banded down to-day by ?lustice Ne\vburget\ oi the State Su? preme GoUrt, in litigation growing out of the presentation of drafts to which were attached bills of lading for cotton supposed to have been shipped from Alabama to New York. The statement of the facts in the case, as given in t ho opinion, recites (hat Knight, Yiinccy <V- <"o., of D e'? en tu r, Ala. in the sprint; of HMO, placed for collection with the First; National Bank of becalm* a draft, for $39,000 on Springs & Co. Attached to this draft wore bills of lading and cor? ticated of Insurance subsequently found to be traudulent, covering a supposed consignment of cotton by Knight, Van coy & Go, to Springs & Co. Tlie Hanover .National Bank pre? sented the draft to Springs & Co., who paid it, but later demanded that their money he refunded, claiming that the cotton had hot arrived, and stating their belief that the bills of lading and certificates wore fraudulent. In the meantime Knight, Yaneey & Co. became bankrupt. The Hanover National Bank refused to refund the $39,000 which had been placed to tho credit of the Decatur Bank and with? drawn, and suit was started by Springs & Co. In ordering a new trial, Justice Newbttrger says: "It would appear that the decisions of the English courts and the Supreme Court, of the United State..! have held uniformly that money paid upon a draft, properly drawn, but accompanied by forged bills of lading, when paid by the drawee, cannot be recovered. "It Is conceded that the defendant (the Hanover National Bank) received the draft; with the bills of lading and certificates of insurance, from the First National Bank of Decatur. who, by rea? son of having discounted the draft, was ii bona lido balder for value, and in presenting to the plaintiffs and receiv? ing payment, therefor, the. defendant acted as the agent of the Decatur Bank. " It. furthermore appears that neither the defendant nor its principal had knowledge that the bills cf lading or certificates of insurance were forged. The defendant's authority was simply to collect the amount of the draft. It did not guarantee the validity of the collateral or that the. cotton would be delivered. '?it also appears that Knight, Yaneey &. Company became bankrupt throe weeks after the payment oy the plain? tiffs of the draft, and live days after the Decatur Bank hud drawn the bal anco in the hands of the defendant, and almost one month before the plaintiffs notified the defendants of the non-ar? rival of the cotton. "For these reasons here stated, the motion to set aside tho verdict must be granted und a new trial ordered." PRIZES OFFERED. Leading; Greek nnd French Scnilars to Re? ceive Ton Dollar?
