IN THE COURTS.
Tho case of Jauies I. Mnoro vs.
Sophoy Pool was tried today beforo
District Judgo Goodrich, and resulted
in a vordict for Plaintiff Mooro, for
the amount sued for, $95.00 and in
terest but the court nfused to en
force tho mortgage on tho homestead
ot tho defendant, Pool. The inter
esting feature in tho decision, is the
fact that Judgo Goodrich refuses to
follow tho decision of the supremo
court of Toss's, whore tho same ques
tion was up for decision, and tho
opinion was rendered by Presiding
Judge Waltor Acker ot tho commis
sion of appeals, in that o so. (5. D.

tinuing the homostoad exemption
olauso in tho constitution that: "In
suit to loreolose the mortgage, that
the interests in the residence, home

jeot to sale under foreclosure, subject
to the right ot tho widow and minor
children to occupy it during suoh oc

rich held that tho mortgage on the
Defendant Pool's homestead oould not

prayer of plaiDtiff for foreclosure,
lie further siid that ho thought the
decision quoted above rendered by
Judge Acker was in violation of the
constitution and he would give them
a ohaacfa to revive it JJe ATovo. It is
not often that a district judge refuses
to followjtbo dcoisions of the supremo

Isitw York, March SI. An unusual
suit wab brought to trial beforo Judge
Beach in the special term of tho supremo
com t. It was that of Mrs. Mary Liv
ingston, widow of Livingston Living
ston, against her son, Philip Livingston.
Mrs. Livingston iiled her complaint
about a year ago. In it bho asked that
sho be given possession of proporty in
Nineteenth and Fifty-third streets
which she alleged her son had induced
her to deed to him in May, 1800, by mis
representations. Her complaint was
full of bitter charges. Livingston Liv
ingston was a well known lawyer of
this city. Ho died in 1872. By his will
it was provided that his widow should
havo all his property, but it was directet!
that sho was to give to the son such part
of tho estate as sho would think proper
and at such a timo as sho thought best.
Philip Livingston, tho son, against
whom tho chnrges aro mado, is now HO
years old. Ho is a graduate of Harvard
collego and of the Columbian college
law school. At tho timo of tho transac
tion which his mother questions, he was
a clerk in tho oflico of Turner, McCluro
& Rolston, lawyers. Ho was married
in April, 1800, to Miss Juliet Morris,
daughter of William A. Morris of tho
firm. At tho timo of tho nuuriago Mrs.
Livingston gavo hor son tho houso at 11
West Twenty-sixth street, which is
worth $o0,000, and which is mortgaged
for half that amount. It is this prop
erty which Mis. Livingston now says
her son got from hor by niisiepie
Bentations. Mrs. Livingston, who is
past 70, spoke with a great deal of feel
ing in court of her hon's alleged ill
treatment of her. Sho wept frequently
under rross examination. Tho winter
betoru ho was married, M10 said, ho al
most entirely deserted her. Ho did not
even take trouble to toll hur of tho hour
of his wedding, and consequently she
was lato at it. Mrs. Livingston said she
camo to tho conclusion that her son hud
become her eueniy shortly aftor his
marriage. Sho had taken care of him
for eighteen years, and sho uul 1101
realize that sho had so suddenly become
the object of his bounty. Sho was iorceti
to take a cheap room at her hotel, lor
which sho paid $2 a day. Sho took o.
moal daily at tho hotel table, and nt
bread and tea in her room because she
could not affoid to pay tor all hor meals
at tho hotel. Sho had never beforo been
"I novor thought my son would de
ceive me," said Mrs, Livingntou. "It is
not his wife, nor his wife's mother, but
I know who tho poison was. It was hir.
aunt, a portion bonio 07 years old. 1
thought ho was hypnotized, but I don 1
sen what sho had done to got a young
man of his ago under her inilueuee. i
did not supposo that a bon's affection for
his mother could bo taken from hor
Mrs. Livingston told in detail how her
son had pormaded her that tho proporty
loft to hev by her husband could be
mado to bring in a larger income if it
was placed in his hands, and how after
sho had transferred it to him with the
understanding that sho was to recoive a
stated inconio of $2100 a year, it was for
ono reason or another cut down to such
a small amount that sho could not ex
ist on it.

Pine Ui.ukf, Ark., MayS.'J. A dis
patch from Crook bayou says the
divers have boon at work all day on
tho sunken wreck of tho St. Louis
train on tho Cotton Belt road. Tho
Pullman sleeper, 'Mercury," and tho

feet of water. Nino bodios havo been
takon from them. Tho work of re
covery will bo completed today.
Over a dozen woundod aro in houses
near tho scene oi the wreck, who are
said to bo dying.
It is loarnnd that tho causo of tho
terrible disaster was that tho passon
gor train received orders to turn hack
at a ccrtan station, tho trnck being
ovorlloncd, and to go arrund by way
of Brinkloy arid Little Rook to Pino
Bluff. The orders given woro that
the passenger should await tho ar
rival of a freight train at
HumpLroy, a station between
Pine Bind and Brinkloy, but
it is stated that the passenger
conductor did not so undorstand the
ordors nod was trying to mako the
next station, and it was on a trestle
over Crooks bayou that tho trains col
lided and tho slccnor and ohrir car
wero precipitated into tho water
low. Tho sleeper went first and
covered by water and tho chair
followed, falling on top of it.
