JUDGE WHITE'S CHARGE.
The Lawyers Fer F. S. Tarbell Say
Was Unfair The First Johustewu
In the case el Farnev S. Tarbell.
Cleveland, Ohie, against the Pennsylvania
raureau company, te recover soe.uuu nmii
ages for the death of his wire and three
children, who were passengers en the
Day Express and were swept away in the
flood at Ceuemaugh, May 21, 18S9, the jury
in Pittsburg en Thursday rcturned a ver
dict for the defendant.
The trial has been In progress ever a
week, the case being vigorously contested
by both sides. Messrs. Marshall and
Imbrie, Tarbelt'sattorneys, lay the defeat
ofthelr client's claim upon Judge White,
who, they sav, charged strongly against
them. After the judge delivered his charge
a somewhat spirited dialogue took place
botweenthe judge and the plaintiff, Mr.
Tarbell. During the entire trial Tarbell
has been greatly exercised, and the charge
of the court seemed te particularly Incense
When Judge White descended from the
bench he walked ever te Mr. Tarbell aud
in a kindly tone and manner opened a con
versation. Tarbell turned en him with the
reniark, "Well I expected at leust pne
thing In this trial, and that was a fair and
impartial charge from the court, but I see
I did net even get that."
Mr. Tarhcll's atterneys will carry the
case te the supreme court, hoping te secure
a reversal en the charge of Judge Whlte
This case was the first of the suits for
damages that grew out of the Johnstown
flood, and was, therefore, looked upon by
all as a test. The plaintiff claimed that It
was negligence en the part of the railroad
te let the train stand in the Ceuemaugh
yards in the face of the pending dangers
that threatened the whole Ceuemaugh Val Val
Iey, In case the Seuth Ferk dam gave way,
and that the company bad plenty of time
te remeve the train te a safe place, but did'
net de it.
The railroad company took the position
that its men exercised reasonable care and
prudeuce, and in the light of past experi
ences in floods In this valley selected a
place for the trains that had never been
Heeded. Several attorneys had received
1 list ructions te institute proceedings at ence
In cae the verdict in the Tarbell suit
should be in favor of the plaintiff. Nene
of these eases will new be entered until the
supreme court passes upon the Tarbell
case, which will net be till next October.
The next civil action arising out of the
Johnstevn catastrophe te be tried in Pitts
burg will be the one brought against the
Seuth Ferk Fishing company, owners of
the preperty of the dam.

The prescnt Congress has made many
heavy Inroads upon the surplus, but no
wilder leap In the dark has yet been made
than the adoption of the compromise dis
ability pensien bill in the patched-up shape
that It presented after lUhad been fixed up
by the conference committee. The sym
pathy or the old soldiers and their sous
must be retained somehow, and the mere
higatclle, that Representative Merrill con
siders the $35,000,000 carried by the com
promise bill, U deemed only a small return
for their realty te the party new In pewer.
Mr. Merrill was frank enough te admit In
the Heuso that this was uet all the Repub
licans wanted te de for the old soldiers, but
they consider It butter than nothing at all.
It Is admitted that $.15,000,000 Is but a
small part ur what the bill will probably
cost In tbe end. but thore Is at prcseut neth
ing en which a definite estimate can be
based. There is no doubt, howevor, that It
will Involv'e the expenditure of something
llke $00,000,000 the first year, und that that
amount will Increase year by year for a
long tlme te come. The pension ofllce gave
up trying te llgure out the ultimate cost of
the experiment and the committee admitted
te the Heuso that no estimate could be
given. Truly the surplus Is being reduced
and the wiseacres shake their heads and
predict that the treasury will be empty In
