MATTERS IN COURT Fisk Appeal Case Arguments Are All in Decision Reserved. AMERICAN SURETY WINS c. r . Beardsley, of Milford, Begins His Suit Against the Xcw Havcii Road. The appeal of Louis A- Fisk, ct al., from the decision of the commissioners was argued before Judge Roraback in the superior court all day yesterday. When the case was concluded the judge reserved his decision, as had been ex pected he would. Judge Stoddard and Attorney Goodhart appeared for the de fense and the counsel for the plaintiff was Ely, Zacher & Ely. The case has to do with the will of the lata Eugene Fisk: The plaintiff and his brother were the sons of Mr. Fisk by his first wife. Her fathor was the late Leon ard Daniels of Hartford, who It is claimed, left her estate to her husband in trust for her sons, who should get it after his death. Mr. Fisk, however, willed his money to his second wife and her children. When the- will was pro bated .it was protested by the sons by the first. wife, who was Kate Daniels and the commissioners decided against them. The present appeal Is from that decision of the commissioners. The cs tate amounts to about $300,000. and Mr. HhII of Bost.m. The allega tion was that it had lost the sum claimed through misrepresentations by the Pacific .Surety company as a re sult of its bonding the Economizer company which installed heating ap-' l.aratus in the Xew Haven High school in 19)3. The work did not conform to the requirements of the plans and specifications, and the Economizer ccmpany failed and then withdrew from the contract. The city sued the American Surety company and ob tained a Judgment of something over ,000 against it. The Surety com pany alleged that the bonding com pany that furnished the bond for the faithful performance of the work was the Pacific company, and that it on learning that the Economizer company would not fulfil its contract, induced It (the American company) to put up cue-half of the bond which was $7,500. The American company was selected by the city as a defendant in the suit, the Pacific having in the meantime withdrawn its bond. Montague Case Postponed. The contested divorce case of Ttobert A" Montague against his wife, which had been put over from Wednesday till 2 o'clock, yesterday afternoon, had to be further put off (because of the length of thfi Fisk appeal case. It will now-' come pep again some time next week, the exact time to be decided up on to-day by Judge Roraback. Railroad Case Begun. After the surety company cases be fore Judge Wheeler In the superior court yesterday the case of Charles F Beardsley of Milford vs. the 'New Ha ven road was begun before 8. Jury. The plaintiff" is a landowner in Milford and ; his contention Is that when the rail road put through four tracks at that place it lowered the tracks so that a drain pipe had to be put In to carry off the water. This drain pipe goes over the property of a man named Clark and then deposits Its water and the refuse with it on Beardsley's place. This it Is claimed has deterior ated' the value of the property. The plaintiff put his father, Charles W. Beardsley, on the stand, yesterday. The elder Mr. Beardsley has lived In Mil ford for sixty-eight years and has serv ed in the capacity of every townofftclal in Milford at one time or another. He testified that the property of his son was worth about $200 before the drain was put in and that now It Is worthless The case will take another half day. It will be put on this morning again. At torney Hamilton appeared for the plaintiff and Watrous & Day, and Ixonard Daggett for the road. New Jury Panel.

The next case down on the assignment list Is that of Ford vs. 6mlth. Altiuan Appeal. The Connecticut company has filed notice in the supreme court in the suit broueht bv Charles A. ' Altman of Boulevard, and in which the trolley company was defendant. Mr. Alt man was thrown from a car on Whal ley avenue last June, and in the su perior court he obtained a verdict against the road for $1,500 damages.

Ives, .made no other will than the one offered a week ago in the probate court by Attorney George D. Watrous, was settled yesterday when Judge Studley admitted to pro baate the will of Mrs, Ives. There was no objection from any source to the probating of the will. Attorney George D. Watrous was appointed executor, and Attorneys Eliot Watrous and Ernest C. Simpson appraisers. After Mrs. Ives' death and the pre sentation of a will executed In Septem ber last, it la rumored that Mrs. Ives may have made a later will. .Attorney Watrous said that lie had made a dil igent search for a second onp, but could find no other document of that character. Nothing In Common Plots. There were no sessions or decisions In the court of common pleas yester Surety Company Decision. In the suit of the American Surety company, of New York, against the Pacific Surety company of California the former was yesterday afternoon given a verdict for $9,562.50 by a Jury In the civil side of the Superior court. This was a suit in which the 'American company, which was represented by Watrous & Day and Mr. Parmelee of this city, sought 'to recover from the Pacific company, which was represent ed by Fitzgerald & Walsh of this city Auto- Do You Deliberately Torture Yourself Alive by Neglecting Your Stomach 7 Remedy Free for the Asking. A great outcry has arisen during the last few years against scientists who torture dumb animals alive In the in terests of science. How many people ire there, however, who needlessly tor ture themselves by causing their stom achs to overwork. Dyspepsia, indiges tion, heartburn, sleeplessness, loss of vim and energy are the inevitable re lult. Are you one of these? Why not give your stomach a rest? Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will re lieve your stomach of all Its work and do It for you. They are compounded of the very elements and do the work which the stomach performs when In normal health, aseptic pepsin, malt diastase and lige Ingredients. Dr. Richardson In writing a thesis on treatment of dyspepsia and Indiges tion closes his remarks by saying, "For those suffering from acid dyspepsia, ihown by sour, watery risings, or for Satulent dyspepsia shown by gas on itomach, causing heart trouble and dif ficult breathing, as well as for all oth ir forms of stomach trouble, the safest treatment Is to take one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after -each neal. 1 advise them because they con tain no harmful drugs, but are com josed of valuable digestives, which act romptly upon the food eaten.

For causing a general and spontan eous "kcr-chau" at Poll's theater Wed nesday evening, Harry B. Lynch,, an eighteen-year old young man, paid $7 and $6.17 in the police court yesterday. Harry wanted to be funnier than the show, and threw a littlo snuff around the audience. Policeman Keegan was among those who sneezed and ho haul- en the trickster to the lockup on a charge of breach of the peace. Two other young men were also fined In court, yesterday, for "sneaking in", to Poll's theater Comique during the afternoon. ing. It Is the case of George Barry & Son of Philadelphia vs. Mrs. Cecilia I. Yale of Meriden. The suit is to re cover $2,500 on the sale of a set of Ainsworth's Historical Romances. At torneys Clark and Dunn appear for the plaintiffs, and Attorney Danaher ' for the defendant. It Is claimed by the defense that at the time of the sale the plaintiffs, who are book publishers, agreed to sell a set of Smith Alden Thackary books, be longing to the defendant, for $20,000, and the $2,500 for the other set were then to be deducted. The defendant still has her books and In addition to this she claims that she advanced $500 to the Philadelphia concern. It is said that the plaintiffs claim to have sold their claim against Mrs. Yale to J. B. Williams, Jr., the New England selling agents of the concern, but some time ago Judge Roraback re fused to allow Mr. Williams to appear as a co-plaintiff In the suit.

Ho was charged 'with attempting to obtain $600 worth of goods under false pretense from S. S, Adams and Conrad Weiss, and to this complaint he pleaded guilty.

Wade as administrator of the estate of Mrs. Maria McGovern, yesterday filed his account In the pro bate court, showing .that there Is $175.32 for the heirs of Mrs. McGovern instead of $6,000, as supposed toy some nephews and nieces. Administrator Wade reported that while it was. be lieved 4 hat Mrs. McGovern owned real estate she had none In fact. Some time prior to her death she had trans ferred to James Coleman, a former husband, al of her real estate, reserv ing the life use of it for herself. Mrs. McGovern's home was on East street. L 1 j Clairvoyant Case. A most unusual case was settled by Judge Tyner in the civil side of the city court yesterday, when he handed down Judgment of $S2.o0 in the case of Jenovlce vs. Dona to. The judgment rendered was the amount asked for by Attorney Wynn, counsel for the plain tiff. It was alleged that ' on Saturday, December 1, this Mrs. Jenovlce met Mrs. Donato and family on the street, and told her that they were to die on the following Wednesday. Greatly alarmed at this assertion, Mrs. Donato asked what could be done. Mrs. Jen ovlce then told of a clairvoyant down in New York, who could throw off thi.s black spell. She said that she would go down to New York if this Mrs. Do nato would pay her expenses $5.25. She did pay it. On the following day, she went to the Jenovlce home, and said' that her New York friend's price was $100, but she would get her to throw oft the dark spoil for $75. She then reduced this sum to $65 and a gold ring. Mrs Donato borrowed the money, bought a ring for $7.50. At the appointed time near the "Hippodrome" In Congress avenue, the money was turned over to Mis. Jenoviie, by Mrs. Dona to' s daughter. The next day, Mrs. Jenovlce went to the Donato home again, and brought with her a piece of black cloth, done up in a handkerchief. This she cut in smail pieces, and gave it to the daugh ter to throw in the fire. This d me the black spell was (iff. Mrs. Jenovice said something like "Easy money," and beat it. With the Commissioners. Before the county commissioners yes trrflay, was heard . a . remonstrance against granting a saloon . license to Thomas Leahy, who does a lquor busl ncss at 861 State street, but whose resl dence Is at 312 Wallace street., Rev William D. Mossman complained that there was a sign at the latter number stating that James Kane was to open a saloon there. The clergyman and Joseph RaWls made Inquiries to deter mine whether It was true that Leahy was to transfer his license to Wal lace street, and If this were , so, he wanted to remonstrate against It. Other remonstrance hearings , that will come up In the , county commis sioners' office are as follows: Hugh McHugh, 592 Congress avenue, March 10; William O. Vaughan, 169 State street, March 23; Joseph D. Hag gerty, 5 Woostcr street, March 3. CO DU In Local Theaters HYPERION.

"The Lion and the Mouse;" and the colossal octupus of finance succumbs to the mouse. The play presents a pro blem that Is of the deepest Interest In modern days, and suggests a remedy that eventually brings results that are of the most gratifying character. The problem appeals phychologlcally to one -presents In clear 'cut characters the struggle of a woman against a well nigh Insurmountable ' accumulation of wealth directed to Insure political sup port of the man possessing It. The psychological effect Is produced by the suffering of one who Is Innocent, and this Is heightened and 'heated to a glowing brilliancy. ; A short outline of the- play will show the many oppor tunltles of power. ' Because Judge' Rossmore absolutely refuses to be ruled by greatest finan cier of the. world, greatest (not only at present, but the greatest the world ever will see) he finds his name dis graced by the accusation of accepting bribes, a practice which he never dreamed of doing and was led on by the octopus to Invest In' stocks that w ere recommended to him. He finds all his money gone, suddenly, and a charge! of having more in his possession than ! he bought. The explanation given by the conspirators Is the acceptance of them as bribes. . So, In the opening act, the Judge is found ln tits cottage on Long Island living humbly, with all his weath gone, and hlfl trial for Impeach ment just about to begin. Judge Rossmore's daughter, Shirley, has Just been on a trip to the Orient, and Is returning now. Her father can hardly bear to tell her of his disgrace and so has gotten his attorney to go to meet her, but he, too, cannot break the news to her. When she Is told of the' calamity, she bears up bravely, making the load Infinitely easier to bear.- Her greatest shock Is to find out that John Ryder Is the man at the bot tom of the eonspfracy-the octupus. She has met his son, Jefferson, on board shop, where they have reached a mutual understanding of their regard for each other. Then in comes Jeffer son to tell her first, that his engage ment to another girl, Just announced In the day's paper, Is false and secondly to express his deepest sympathy for having to acknowledge that his father is at the bottom of It all. He is an nounced as engaged to Kate Roberts, daughter of Senator Roberts. It is easy to see the political ends the oetu pus has In view. But Shirley decides that It Is best not to have any visits from Jefferson, hut to fight th whole thing hfrself. This she does by writing a book In which the octupus Is the lending clmrticte.', and where niflny of his characteristics . I are tindlxputably set forth.
