The court was occupied at the afternoon and evening sessions yesterday with the application for an order from the couit restraining all poisons connected with tho taking of testimony tn tho case of Robert F. Straine vs. Tho Bradford Savings Bank and Trust Co. from giving any portion or part of tho evidence produced for publi cation, Tho attorneys of the plaintiff filed an answer to thu application tor an order. The applcatlon was made by Attorney W. B. C. Stlckmy for tho bank and grew out of the publication In the Montpciler Rec ord of an artlcli., matter for which had apparently hei-ii furnished by the solici tors for .Mr. Straine. The hearing was stopped at Bradford, where tho testimony was being taken hefjru n commissioner last Friday. The solicitors for Mr. Smilno were W. M. Stockbrlelge and Fri-d .1. Hut chinson of Boston, John 11. Beckett of Braelfoul and Gilbert A. Davis or Windsor. Tin. bank was reprcse-ntexl by W B C Sliekuey of Bethel, W. A. Lord of Monl pelier and David C. Conant of Bradford. Iho article leferred to was read In court and contained timoug other things tho following: "It appc-ai-e-il that from .May 1, IS'jil, to -May 1, 1M),, 13. o, Leonard inn thu bank on a contract prico of JSue) a year and cer tain expenses; that tho bank hi MS had $.0,ri of the assets Invested in the 131y mine and had possession of thu mine The bank had negotiated a snlo of It to the I-.ly Copperllelel Mining Company, July 23, is'tt:, for m.vw taking tho note of the lat ter company for that sum and discharg ing all Its claims against the mining pro perty. This company was organized 1 y jir Straine and Mr. Leonard with a capital stock of Jl,wm,floo and Immediately .ssued J2i),CCU of bonds secured by a mortgage of its entire mining property. The- Brad ford hank accepted one- half these bon !s as security for Its $:,,' note and the oth-r flio.ihji) of bonds weio turned over to Mr. Straine as his projierty. Mr. Straine was the owner of sixty-four chares of the stock or the Bradford bank and in the autumn of 1SH7 demanded an examination of thu boo.is ami papers of the bank. Ilo sent his attorneys, Mcs.-r-!. Stockbrldge .fc Davis, to the bank to make the investigation. The.su gentlemen wen: refused access to the books and paper-, and final, y at tho ciese ot" banking hours were turned out. A suit Is now pending lu orange County court against 1-3. O. Leonard, the clerk, for refusing to show the books to Mr, Strain' attorneys. But what Is more particularly Interest ing Just now is the fact that these trus tees, January 31, 1S, on thu veiy last day of the bank's existence prior to the ap pointment or a receiver and tho Issuing of an Injunction by Chancellor Tyler in pro iccdlngs In ccmliy that wrro set on foot by tlic-.o trustees on tho night or January 31, paid themselves as rollows: J H.

Theo notes remain unpaid in the hands of tho receiver, It further appear ed that tho hvnk held .Mr. Leonard's notes to tho atrount of J3277.02. Mr. Hale was unable to recall any knowledge of this overdraft." Attorney Stlckncy stated that the claim ot the petitioners was that the books and other data of tho bank were shown only for the purposes of examination for two in the case and not for general publica tion. They claim that the information was never given out In any other manner and information as contained lu the article rerericd to could only have been secured from the solicitors of Straine, .Such con duct was Improper and the orators on thu publication or tho article refused to allow the uso of further papers until an order lie given by thu court for their protec tion. Tho attorney for tho defendant in the case admitted that the books containing the accounts, etc., weio produced and stated that spectators wero allowed at the hearing, any of whom might have gleaned Information as to what was go ing on nt the hearing. Some of the tes. tlmony was read and created not a little Interest, He denied that any of tlie or.i toi's solicitors desired any of the Informn Hon except for tho trial nf the case and have not used them for any other pur pose. Tho fact that an Associated Prrrs man asked for matter relating to the case was brought up nnd It was stated tint tho attorneys of tho opposition was cun suited In tho nmttor and tho reporter re ferred to tho commissioner. Attorney Slickney called John B. Peckett om- of the nttr.rneys of fltrnlr.c, as a wit ness. Mr. Teckett testified that ho wab at tho allien of thn bank on last Tuesday when examination of the books was made. Thought there were others present b sldo those directly interested In the ease. Fx tracts wero taken from the book of rec ords somo of which wero read. Ho did not know nt what hour the Record went to press, On cross examination ho stated that no objection was offered to the rend ing of tho items ot the bank books and that he did not examine the books for pub lication of what they contained. Gilbert A. Davis, another attorney of the plaintiff In tho case, was called and exam ined. Ho stated that tho urtlcle In tho Record concerning the nffalrs of the bank was of his composition furnlshid ut the request of -tho correspondent of tho paper in Bradford, Some minor dotnlls ns to the Intent of the nrtlcle wero brought out and on cross examination the. witness stated that he was not connected with tlie paper In which tho article appeared, He said no attempt was made to keep tho hearing secret. W. M. Stockbrldge, the third wlttipss, was another of the solicitors of Straine. He was qilestionpil upon some legal mat ters to bring out Ills idea of propriety in certain legal matters. He illd not con sider the healing u private one In any sense. At this point court ndjourmvl until 7 o'clock in the evening, On the reassem bling tho counsel for the bank called 13. A. Nutt of the Muntpellc-r Daily P.ccord, who testified that he- received the story printed in the Record concerning the bank and wtoto lis headlines. So far as he knew no attempt was made to keep the story out ot tho weekly edition of tho pa per. David S. Conant, ono of the attorneys for the bank, was called and testified to some unimportant matters in connection with the conduct of the hearing nt Brad ford. On cross examination ho testified to tho Interior arrangements of th" bank and the pint t-s occupied by tho spectators pre-ciit nt the hearings. W. M. Stockbrldge was recalled and tes tified that he did not bellevo any ol the witnesses summoned to the bank hearings gavo out Information to the press. The solicitors for Straine then Intro duced a Joint affidavit signed by Hobei t F. Stra'ne, Charles A. Lnnson, Fred J. Hutchinson and John B. Pc-ckett, stating 111 strong terms that they were In no way connected with tho artlclo published In the Record and knew nothing of It until Its ippearance In the paper. Thn afllilavlt of W. M.

OPERATION ON THE POPE, A Cyt nrmovfd From l!U Irt Tlilcli Tlin Operation Successful and tlio l ope's Tover lias Subsided i i Homo, M.uch 1, Tho Popo passed a fairly good night and was better this morning. Dr. Mazzlnl, shortly after nine o'clock this morning, removed a cyst from tho left tn.gh or tho Pontiff. Tho operation purioiined was pcrfeeiTy successful and tho patient bcro it well. It appears jvste-rilay's fever symptoms were entirely duo to the cyst, from which tho Popo hus long suffered. Thero Is now no trace of fever. Dr. Mnzutni thinks no complications will ensue. Strict measures havo been taken to. exclude outsldeis from the Vatican. 2:55 p. m. The Popo yesterday desired that tho cyst bo simply lanced, but con vented to removal upon the eloctor'.s In sisting. Dr. Zapponl, who remains nt the Vatican, saw the Pope at 1:91 and found him In a fairly satisfactory condition. Numbers ot despatches or inquiry about tho Pope's health have ben received at the Vatican Horn diplomats and others. The stream of caller continues, and .sincere symp ithy is .shown In .ill circle.-, Italian as well as papal. There is no sign of 'anything unusual at the Witlean. Car dinal Itnmpolhi took his customary drive this nf tern son. Dr. Lapponi will again ! leep at the Vat lean. I lining tho operation the Pop. asked bis private chaplain, Father Angeli. to say miss. After the surg.-on.-- nml eoiii.,i'tc d their task he was bi excellent spirits and even Joked with them. Ho s.e-pt two hours during the el.ij. A i u o'clock Drs. M.uonzi and Lapponi again vlslt-d him and found that the pain caused by thu operation bad mi far abated r.s lo allow him to He on his lack. At that hour his teniper.ituto was lower and h.-i general condition satisfactory. The est removed was about the size ot an 1'iar go.

The seml-ottlclnl Vatican organs In their ilc-tnl s t,f the Illness confirm to-day des patches to the Associated Press in every particular ami warn the people against exaggeiatPd statements published in cer tain quarters. The hematic cyst had been forming 'probably fur thlily years. The only per sons prisent at tho operation weie Dr. Mazzoni, Dr. Lapponi, who assisted and Dr. Plo Centra the Pope's personal at tendant. At half past nine Ills Holiness was eat tied on a litter to a window of his apparment. Settling he said to the doctors: "Do you want to play those tricks upon mo at my age?" then ht lay down composedly on his right side. Al though the courage which the patient dis played gave' them courugo they feared to use chloroform nnd used Instead a II eiulel anaesthetic condstln: of cocaine chloride of sodium and morphia. 1 Owing to the size of the work the excis Ion oceiii toil some time, but Dr. Mazonnl quickly traced the extent of the growth i and tho actual operation lasted 2 min utes. The Pope displayed great fortitude. After bandaging, he was carried back to the bed and once the- feeling of falntness due to the shock and loss of blood had passed away, he appeared quite calm. The fever quickly subsld.-d, confirming the diagnosis of the doctors. King Humbert, ijueen Marghorlta, fieii, Pelloux, the premier, and Admiral Do Cunevaro. minister of foreign affairs, have ananged to be Informed at frequent Intervals legurdlug the Pope's condition.
