Watts, Anna Watts and Matilda Omered,
was attached for trial this morning.
Prier te the case being epened, Wm.
W. Wlltbank, or the Philadelphia bar
assoclnte counsel for defendants, was ad
mitted te practice in the Lancaster courts.
Plaintiff otrercd In ovldcnce the mort mert mert
gaeo for 828,0.17.00 in 1873, by Ethelbcrt
Watts te Ilenry M. Watts and assigned by
Henry M. Watts te plaintiffs and rested
their case. The mertgage was en the
Watts mansion in East Denegal township.
The dofenso udinitted the execution of
the mertgage and assignment, but claimed
that the ussignment was made as collateral.
The history of the ease, from the defen
dant's standpoint, was this: In 1874 Ethelbcrt-
Walts borrowed $1,000 from the
Pepper cstnle and gave his note in
payment. Henry M. Watts assigned
the mertgage lie held ns collateral
for the payment of this note. Later Ethel
bert borrowed $5,000 mere from the estate
andapaper was executed by Henry M.
Watts setting forth that this mertgage was
for the use of the Peppers as collateral for
the $9,000 borrewod by Ethelbcrt. This
Jiaper was net rocerdod at the time and se
r as the records thou showed Henry M.
Watts was the holder of it. Shortly after
this Henry M. Watts took n deed for the
pretierty from Ethelbcrt and he was then,
se fur as the records showed, the owner of
the property as well as the mertgage en It.
Henry SL Watts ut this tlme was In
debted te Ills wife In the sum of $50,000,
and in 1885 he conveyed this property te
his wile. She bocame the owner without
any kuowlcdge that this mertgage had
bcen assigned te anybody. She took the
preperty for a valuable consideration with
out notfee or knowledge of an existing in
cumbrance. The consideration given by
her for the property was an endorsement
en the bend held against her husband of
the receipt of $30,000 en account of the
Ethelbert Watts continued te nay his In
terest en theso notes held by the Pepper
estate regularly.
A short tlme age Jehn H. Shoenbergor,
a wealthy iron manufacturer, of Pittsburg,
died and left a bequest of $100,000 te his
sister, Annie M. Watts. Under.that be-
auesVlf-fAunie M, Watts died. in the life
me of her husband, the bequest was te be
equally divided between her eight children.-
She died befoie her bretticr, uud
by the 'terms of the will the children wero
entitled te the $100,000. Etholbert's share
of the bequest was $12,600.
The defendants notltled the Peppor estate
of Etholbert's inheritance and te leek for
the pavment of the $0,000 due en the notes
held against him from that source. They
called upon Ethelbcrt and he transferred te
thorn enough of the principal te pay their
claims. This was subsequently returned
te him after an examination of the transfer
of the mortgagp,because it wasthore recited
luai me reppcrs were oengeci nrsi te pro

mortgage rested, bofero attempting te col cel

Defendant's counsel said their position
was that us Anna M. Watts had purchased
the preperty without; notice of oncutn encutn oncutn
brance she took It frce, the transfer net
having been recerded, when she bought it;
and second, that when EtholberL Watts

Important Opinion by the Suprome
Court Agntust Invasion.
An important decision was handed down
by the state supreme court en Slenday
concerning the rights of a preperty holder
against the violent invasion of his home by
the agents of a creditor. The opinion was
given upon the appeal of William SIcClung
against the decision of the common pleas
court of Philadelphia county in the suit
brought against him by Goerge E. Dear
born, a doaler in musical instruments en
the instalment plan.
In December, 1881, Sir. SIcClung bought
a cabinet parlor organ from a woman
named Hamilton, and retained the Instru
ment in his possession for nearly two
years without his title being questioned,
lu the autumn of 18S0 Dearborn found that
the organ was in Sir. SIcCluug's dwelling
and decided tegiiln possession of it en the
ground that it had been sold or leased te
ene of his customers three years bofero,
and that the instalments had net bcen paid
en it.
On the 11th of Oclober, 1686, he sent two
of his cinployes with a team te Sir. SIc
Cluug's rosidence en North Tenth street te
gain possession of the iustiument. He In
structed tliem, hew ever, net te act ruddy

tlie house, leaded en a wagon and taken
te Dearborn's store. Sir. SIcClung brought
suit against Dearborn for this act of vio vie vio
leneo in the court of common pleas. Ne. I,
of Philadelphia, but tlie Jury decided that
the defendant could net be held rosponsl responsl rospensl
blo for the violence of his agents, which
was committed contrary te his instructions.
This decision was roversod by the su-
iiroine court eti Monday and a new trial or er or

Casper Secr, the alleged Newark post pest post
efllce embezzler, is still in the county Jail
in Trenten. He was visited by Boveral
Newark men en Slenday and was euerea

He prefnrs te remain In Jail, whero he can

much happier than he was a week age,

Inspector Parhain, of Philadelphia, had
a long talk with Seer. He lias been In
Newark exaiululng the books and cannot

Sumatra seems te be king. The Im
pression that the $2 rate of duty will pass
appeais te have taken held of the trade
and everybody who can uffeid it is supply
ing himself with Sumatra, as far as bis
casli or credit will reach. Sales for the
week about 1,200 bales. But while the
prospects of tlie $2 are both accelerating te
sales of the Sumatra and driving up its
price, the soed crops remain as neglected
as ever. If the oxcessivo rate should actu
ally pass, there will be no serer and mere
disappointed persen than the domestic to
bacco grower. The new domestic cieps
are principally in demand for oxpert,
and that means that they are rated at the
lowest possible price. Old scud stock,
however, is in fair demand. The market
disposed of about 000 cases for filler and
blnder purpeses.
The next inscription will take place Slay
2 and will be attended by almost the entire
contingent of American buyers.
The demand for Havana Is as active as
ever, and prices rule high. Havana Im
porters still seem te doubt the possibility
or the new tobacco schedule being carried
out against them. But that doubt will cost
thorn eventually a big fertune, and drive
many of them entirely out of the business.

Considerable activity was displayed In
tlie sced leaf business during the week,
and all varieties were purchased. Tliore
