Ization.
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:

It also appears under tho same date that

as attorney, to date.
In January, ISPS, 13'. O, Leonard, ttustce,

urer, ovenliew his account to the amount
of about ?."2iil. This wi.s fixed up on Jau

wife, Ircno L. Leonard, ono ot $3075, te
ciired by two bond.-, of tho National Life

on- tor $22) with F.ly-Copperfield Mining
company bonds ns collateral, In .Septem
ber, 1M'7, this mining coinp.utiy hnrt been
adjudged Insolvent, asslgne-s app.ilnted
and its bonds were then not of great
value. 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

OPERATION ON THE POPE,

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
