DEFEAT OF MRS. GREEN.
CURIOUS FEATURES OF HER LATEST LEGAL FIGHT. — # . Some of the Peculiarities of the Woman Who is Called the Richest Woman in America. From the Sew York Times. William S. Keiley’s decision in the bank ruptcy case of John J. Cisco & Son, which was published Friday, is a defeat for Mrs. Hetty Howland R. Green, whose financial feats and reputation as “tho richest woman in America” are familiar to the readers of this paper. She was allowed to make her contest on condition that if unsuccessful she should pay all tne bills. It will cost her not less than SIO,OOO, and perhaps 815,000, which, as she is parsimonious to an extra ordinary degree, will by no means please her. Mrs. Green is about 42 years old, and is supposed to be worth about $30,000,000. Her father dying when she was very young, she was adopted by her aunt, Sylvia Ann Howland, a rich old maid. They lived a strange life together. Sylvia Ann was a miser, and she brought her niece up to bo one too. It is judicially recorded that often when they would arrive at the Howland mansion in New Bedford from a visit to New York, Hetty would run out, and get an ounce of tea and a loaf of bread, and of these frugal materials they would make their supper. aylvia Ann Howland died about 1885, leaving a will by which she bequeathed about $1,200,000 to Hetty and about SBOO,- 000 in legacies to other relatives and de pendents. Hetty was greatly chagrined because her aunt, did not leave her every thing by this will. She produced a will of later date which did leave her everything, or almost everything, but tho probate court of Bristol county, Massachusetts, in which New Bedford is situated, rejected the will produced by Hetty and admitted the other to probate. Hetty moved to New York and brought a bul in equity in the United States circuit court for Massachu setts to have her will declared to be the last will and testament of her aunt. An im mense mass of testimony was taken in this case, and such eminent lawyers as Sydney Bartlett and Benjamin R. Curtis led the opposing forces. Avery vivid picture of the life of the Howland family was brought out, and a great deal of expert testi mony upon forged signatures was given. The proponents of the will, which was ad mitted to probate, asserted that Hetty had forged her aunt’s signature to tho will which she had produced by tracing—tak ing a real signature and tracing the false signature by superimposition. Some of the expert testimony was very curious, partie larly that; of Prof. Pierce, tho celebrated mathematician of Harvard college. The signature of Sylvia Ann Howland on Hetty’s will was exactly like a certain genuine signature of her aunt, which was in Hetty’s possession, it was contended on behalf of the proponents of the probated will that this very identity of the writing of the two signatures was in favor of the theory of tracing, and they sent Prof. Pierce on the stand, who testified that by the law of probabilities a person would only sign bis name exactly alike twice in so many million times. All the testimony was taken in private be fore a master in chancery, and then the arguments were made before Judge Nathan Clifford, of the United States supreme court, sitting in the circuit court. Hetty had been married during the progress of the suit to E. H. Green of this city, a man much older than herself, who was not much more than 21. She was quite pretty then, pale and slight, and resembled Christine Nilsson a good deal. She seemed timid and anxious to avoid publicity. Now she is fat and coarse, and possessed of a tongue whose lashings the hardiest lawyers and sharpest Operators of Wall street dread. Judge Clifford decided against Hetty, bolding that her will was not her aunt’s genuine will, and that the other, by which [etty got only about $1,200,000, was Sylvia Ann Howland’s last will and testament. Mr and Mrs. Green went to France after this decision and remained there for some time. She goes to France now quite often; but, as she remarked during the hearing be fore Mr. Kelley: “I don’t let it cost mo $7 or $8 a day. as it does most people. I can’t afford it. I manage to live in Paris for $1 or at the most $1 50 a day.” When Mr. and Mrs. Green were married it was said that he was worth $5,000,000, and the newspapers contained many para graphs about this union of wealth with wealth. Now Mr. Green is worth nothing, though how he lost his money nobody knows. With it he lost the respect of his wife, and she speaks very contemptuously of him. One day during the hearing before Mr. Keiley she said: “My husband is of no use to me at all. I wish I didn’t have him. He is a burden to me.” Ho is very rarely : een with her. She attends to all her law suits and Wall street operations herself, and does not call upon him for any assist ance. John J. Cisco & Son failed Jan. 15, 1885, having liabilities of more than $3,000,000. Lewis May was appointed assignee. He found that Mr. Green had a claim against the firm of $556,851 33, arid the firm had a ciaim against her husband on account of his operations in Louisville and Nashville rail road bonds of $720,760 76. Mr. Green was the vice president of the Louisville and Nashville. Mrs. Green at that time hnd in a vault in the banking house of John J. Cisco & Son about $25,000,000 of securities, and there was also about $400,000 of securi ties, mostly,of Louisville and Nashville, which belonged to Mr. Green when the firm’s claim against him should be paid. Mr. May claimed that Mrs. Green was oquhably responsible for her husband’s debt to the firm, and refused to let her take away her bonds or to liquidate her claim against the firm until she paid up for her husband. I ior emotional indignation was a spectacle. She made daily visits to John J. Clsco& Son’s banking house and by turns wept and pleaded and threatened and objurgated. But Mr. May was adamantine. At last one fatal day, never to be forgotten by Mrs. Green, she gave Mr. May her check for $422,143 42 and a receipt for half of her claim against the firm, $280,015 62, equal to a cash payment by hor of $702,159 04. Then she obtained not only her own beloved securities but her husband's. Getting a cab —an unwonted expense on her part, but the occasion was u momentous one—she bundled her precious treasures into it and took them off. They are now said to be in the vault of a trust company. Mrs. Green trusts banking houses uo more, Mrs. Green had not dono with Mr. May or the Ciscos by any means. She bided her time and “got in her work” where she thought it would annoy them the most. She waited until Mr. Kelley, having been appointed by the supreme court a roferee for that purpose, hail carefully examined Mr. May’s accounts as assignee, and had re ported to the court that they wore correct, By hard work and remurkably shrewd and judicious management, Mr. May had man aged to realize from the assets of John J. Cisco & Son enough to pay a dividend to the creditors of 75 per (tent. Mrs. Green said that the dividend ought to huve been more, and would have been if Mr. May had not frauduletitlv paid himself illegal commis sions. Mr. May found the assets of the firm, when it failed, of tho value of #2,467,370 70, but that of the assets $1,148,500 in securities had been pilodged w ith trust companies and other monetary institutions. He went to work and re deemed these and sold them for the benefit of the creditors, clearing $218,593 56 l>y the transactions. His total fees in the wav <>f commissions amounted to $139,500. Mrs. Green claimed that he had chnrgod com mission on tho value of all the bond* that he had received instead of simply on tlw net profit he had realized by their redemp tion and sale. She also objected that tho amount, he had paid Dos rassos Bros, for legal service*—about s27,ooo—was too tuueh. that Uo bad uo right to lure Fred erick W. Foote, one of tho members of the firm of John .1. Cisco and tho most con versant of any one with its business, to as sist him at the rato of SIO,OOO a year, and that he had done other wrougful acts of loss importance. She filed these objections Jan. 14, 1887, and got tho case reopened by the supreme court, after Mr. Keiley had made his report. Mr. Keiley thereupon went to work again, and a nice time ho and the lawyers, includ ing Mrs. Groen’sown lawyer, Nelson Smith, have had of it. Mrs. Greon attended every hearing of importance, and took an active hand in the fray front beginning to the end, when Mr. Smith wrote a letter to Mr. Keiley withdrawing all her charges and completely exonerating Mr. May. She had delayed the closing up of the estate ana kept people waiting for their money' for a year and a half upon a per fectly unfounded whim, which she was obliged herself to confess was unfounded. Mr. Keiley accordingly made anew report to the supreme court, which was filed in tho county clerk’s office a few days ago. He finds that Mr. May, as assignoe, has prop erly received $3,109,315 43; that he has properly paid out $3,053,861 69, and that he has on hand $41,980 97. Some time during this week Mr. Keiley’s reports will be con firmed by the supreme court and Mr. May will see the end of his long labors. During the hearings before Mr. Keiley Mrs. Green thought nothing of making her lawyer sit down and keep still while she examined the witnesses. She was a good deal disturbed by Mr. May’s account of tho way in winch he and Mr. Dos Passos over reached her and got her to disgorge the money to redeem her husband’s securities and to get. her own out of the banking house. Mr. May acknowledged that the claim against her was of very doubtful validity, and he said that getting the money out of her “w as one of the greatest things ever accomplished In the city of New York, and I was daily complimented for it.” Mr. Dos Passos charged $9,000 for the job and the assignee paid it. As soon as Mr. Cisco got upon the stand she went for him like a tigress and nobody could hold her. Some of her questions were so vulgar that Mr. Keiley, as soon as be could “get a word in edgewise, struck them out; but here are a few specimens from the stenographer’s minutes; Mrs Green—May I ask a few questions? When your father was writing to me did ho ever say to you that he was writing me? Here are these letters where be says none of my money will be used in anything. Yet Mr. Green was using it all tho time. And then when you thought I bad beguu to look into my affairs, in 1882, you sont a man up to walk around so as to scare me so I wouldn’t he able to drive out. Then did you think, when vou had a sham failure and a sham assignment and a sham law suits— Mr. Smith (her counsel) —Mrs. Green! Mr. Hull (Mr. Cisco’s counsel)—l object to counsel interrupting. Mrs. Green—When you and Foote rode up together, according to your own testi mony, and got Dos Passos to make an at tack on mo tho next day, didn’t you expect to put me out of the way as they did my father * Did you think I had a tendency to heart disease, and you would put me out of the way and get all the money? [Desperate but unsuccessful effort on the part of every body to stop her.] lam only asking him if this” was a nice little game, because the people in the country said my life wasn’t worth it. I only want to give him an idea of that. Mr. Hull —Now, if you will answer. Witness—All I can”say is, that I have no knowledge of any of the circumstances Mrs. Green speaks of. Mrs. Green —I didn’t know but your father might h ive communicated with you about it. Because there seems to be a great deal of dodging around. I thought I would just like to know whether this was a little game got up. I would like to ask you why you kept your assignment quiet, so that nobody would find it out until you got the assignment recorded, as you said in your other testimony. Was you afraid some body would go and carry tho things for you? Mr. Smith—Let him answer whether he has any knowledge respecting that matter. Witness —I have no knowledge except that we acted under advice of our counsel, Dos Passos, in all matters in regard to the assignment. Mrs. Green—And he wanted you to fail in the interest of tho same road he was in terested in so that you could get a lot of good bonds out. Mr. Hull —Now, we have had enough of this. Mrs. Green—l only want to ask him why he didn’t let me carry the things instead. I was willing to carry them at 2 per cent., and the Park bank and Chemical bank and nil the creditors would be paid in full. Why did Foote write me this letter saying that everything was all right and they would all be paid in full when, according to the sworn accounts, they were not even solvent when they commenced ? Mrs. Green is a very devout woman in her professions. She often remarked dur ing the bearings before Mr. Keiley: “I come of good old Quaker blood. All I care for is to do right. Then lam sure to go to heaven.” Tobacco Growing in Florida. From the New York Timet. About a year ago the Florida railway and navigation company and the Pensacola and Atlantic railroad company, wishing to re vive the tobacco industry of Florida, which has been dead for the past twenty-five vears, procured a quantity of Havana to bacco seed and distributed it throughout the state from Pensacola to Jacksonville, but more particularly through the southern part. Alraut the same time a syndicate of New Yorkers began to look into the mat ter, and Sept. 26, 1807, w ere incorporated, with a paid up capital of SIOO,OOO, under the state laws of Florida, as “tho Florida tobacco producing and trading company.” M. Oppenheimer was elected president, H. A. Banning, first vice president; George P. Labatut, second vice president; H. R. Kretsohmar, secretary, and Peter Miller, treasurer. The company set out a thousand acres as an experiment in twokind6of Havana, and two kinds of Humatra, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Con necticut, and the bid Florida broad-leof to baccos. It has been found that all of those grow very luxuriant!v, aud will average at least 600 pounds to the ucre, whilo some of the varieties, it is said, will yield from 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. The headquarters and plantations are at Quincy, 180 miles west of Jacksonville. “Of course it is somewhat of an experi ment,” said Mr. Kretschmar, “but it is so far advanced now that we are all but posi tive that it will be the biggest kind of a success. The first settings will begin to ripen about Julv 1. It will be a big thing for Florida, for since the war the raising of cotton has boon the leading industry of that suite, arid now the ow price of 8X cents per pound is barely sufficient to pay tor the raising and baling, while on tobacco there is an excellent profit. Altogether there are only 3,IKK) acre* of tobacco laud under culti vation iu the northern part of tho state, but I believe in a very few years this will be increased to 100,000 acres. ” Watermelons vs. Beer. From the Americut (Oct.'s Recorder. “I’ll tell you one thing,” said a promi nent saloouist yesterday, “watermelons have injured the beor trade with me. My beer sales for tho past two weeks, since the watermelon season begun, have been much less than they wore up to that time. When a man ent< n watermelon lie is too full to want auything else for awhile. There have been so many ineio: s sold here that it has necessarily injured tho beer business. It’s my opinion that people would bo much healthier if they would drink beer instead of oating watermelons.” E. P. O.
