1&B MTTSBTTKO DISPATCH,- SUNDAY, MAT 19, '1881
Mr. 0. A. Smith's Kelatives are Given
$11,200 of Life Insurance.
IT WAS A SUPPOSED SUICIDE, TOO.
Morton Hunter's Heading for lie Ligaor
SUIT OTEE WATEE COMPANY STOCKS
After beintr out for 24 hours the jury in
the suit of the executor df O. A. Smith, of
New Castle, against the Connecticut Mutual
Life Insurance Company to recover the
amount of a policy, came in late yesterday
afternoon with a verdict for the plaintiff in
the sum of 511,200.
This suit has been one of great importance
to life insurance companies. It was shown
that Smith's death was caused by a dose of
laudanum, and it was claimed that he com
mitted suicide because of trouble in a love
affair. The plaintiffs attomeyclaimed that
the laudanum was taken while the man was
temporarily insane. The weight of evidence
seemed to bear out the suicidal theory, and
this makes the verdict important

A bum was granted by the Court yesterday
on the children of Samuel and Hannah Lohr,

Lorenz 'Wunderlich and others, representing
United Master Lodj-e No. 495. Dutch Order
Harigant, yesterday filed an answer to the affi
davit of Peter Kohl, plaintiff in a suit for dam
ages and insurance benefits against the order,
in which it is alleged that Kohl was not entitled
to benefits, being in bad standing in the order
and having been expelled therefrom on account
of violation of the rules of t!ie organization
The plaintiff's argument that he was expelled
maliciously is denied.
Judge Stowe Hears Arcnments in the
Judge Stowe yesterday dismissed the writ of
mandamus on the County Treasurer and
County Clerk to compel them to issue whole
sale liquor licenses under the old law to 12
different applicants. Morton Hunter, Esq.,
made an argument for the writ, but was in
terrupted by Judge Stowe, who said:
T see nothiug new in your case, Mr. Hunter.
You raise precisely the same questions as have
already been adjudicated by the Supreme
Court, as to the constitutionality of the Brooks
law. It makes no material difference what I
may think of the law. or even what I decide,
the Supreme Court has the last guess. They
have guessed and we must enforce- the law as
they have interpreted it. I must refuse your
mandamus, and even if I should decide other
wise it could do you no good that I can see.
You are simply asking for a license to sell
roods already manufactured. I will make the
record in this case in any way you may ask, so
that vou can take it to the Supreme Court, but
that is all 1 can do."
Mr. Hunter will take the case to the Supreme
Suicide Should Not Invalidate.
The case on trial in the Circuit Court,
wherin a life insurance company contested
the payment of its policy owing to a claim
of suicide, has just been decided after long
and tedious litigation. The question arises
why not insure with a company whose poli
cies need no legal measures of this sort.
The first company to erase the suicide
clause from its policies was the New York
Life Insurance Companv. This occurred in
1861, and to-day, nearly 30 years afterward,
the New York Life Insurance Company
stands almost alone in regarding suicide as
a disease. Many companies hide this clause
by leaving it out of their policies, but in
serting it in the application.

Are probably the most thought of goods of the present day.
When a good article can be bought, and at a reasonable
price, did it ever occur to you that more money is wasted in
one summer than would pay for a good Refrigerator. It is
an actual fact that money is saved by the purchase of an
Ice Chest or Refrigerator, not taking into consideration the
Ours is an unknown quantity. No end to the great assort

Astonishment is hafdly strong enough language to ex
press the feelings of many customers on our floors each day.
The answer is generally. "Why, Furniture must be getting
cheap." Yes, Furniture is very cheap. The idea of buying a
splendid large ANTIQUE BEDROOM SUIT, with a
splendid large 24x30 inch German Beveled Glass, good large
Bed, full size, and extra large Washstand all well made
goods. Such a Bedroom Suit would have sold for $40 a year
ago. Look at our goods before buying elsewhere and you
will be amply repaid for all the trouble.
OUR PARLOR FURNITURE.
When we say ours, we mean probably more than you are
aware of. In all the years of our business career we have never
purchased a Parlor Suit for one of our customers. Made
everything. Never allow any goods to be purchased from
us in this line, more particularly, but good reliable Parlor
goods. What does our own make imply? Well, several
things. In the first place, all goods made by us are directly
under the supervision of one of the firm, whcjse trade is the
same, and who considers it an honor to turn out nothing but
good work. We also employ none but the best workmen,
and by so doing give employment to our own citizens. Any
thing in this department you buy, you may rest doubly as
