Descendants of Eobert Morris After land
INSIDE FACIS ABOUT THIS BIO SUIT
The largest realty suit ever commenced in
this State was formally brought yesterday
by the Robert Morris Land and Coal Com
pany against the Beading Railroad Com
pany, the bill of complaint being filed in
this city -with the clerk of the United States
Circuit Court, by Arthur D. Vinton, Esq.i
of New York city, one of the conntel for
the plaintiff company. The papers are sup
plemental to six suits ot ejectment and
three suits for mesne profits filed recently in I
the same conrt, the realty in issue being
8,949 acres of coal lands in Northumberland
county now operated by the Beading Coal
and Iron Company and the Beading Bail
road Company conjointly, partly nnder tax
titles and partly nnder leases from the Lo
cust Gap Improvement Company and the
Fulton Iron Companr.
The suit takes a sensational complexion
on acconnt of the vigorous allegations that
the Beading Company is insolvent; that
the lands in 'question are mortgaged for a
sum far above their value, and other
specific charges, upon which are based a
demand that a receiver be appointed for the
Beading Bailroad pending adjudication
upon the title of the lands.
A HISTOBT OF THE BIO SUIT.
Mr. Vinton is a son of Bev. Dr. Vinton,
of New York. He arrived in the city on
the limited express yesterday morning,
transacted bis business with Clerk Mc
Candless and returned Bast upon the 4:30
r. M. train. Prior to his departure he told
a Dispatch reporter the inside history of
the suit. He said: "The Bobert Morris
Land and Coal Company has been recently
chartered under the laws of New York
State with a paid up capital of $5,000,000,
for the purpose of fighting the suit entered
to-day. Stewart Newell, of New York, is
President, and a number of the lineal de
scendants of Bobert Morris, the first Secre
tary of the United States, are interested.
Those who have taken stock in the company
embrace the foremost financiers in the coun
try. The mere announcement of the
formation of the company created a flurry
in "Wall street, tumbling Beading down
four points and lowering first mortgage
bonds from 1 to 2 per cent The land at
issue is extremely valuable, worth in the
neighborhood of $30,000,000. The Bobert
Morris Company claims the possession of
the land under the original warrants
granted to Bobert Morris by the State of
Pennsylvania and the subsequent legal
titles of record covering the period from
1793 to the present time. The claim is
made that the titles are in fee simple
and easily traced in the Northumberland
county records, that county having been
one of the original counties of the State. A
vast amount of research has established be
yond doubt we think the authenticity of
e titles under which we are moving.
THE BEADING'S ACQUIREMENT.
"Earlv in the '60s the Philadelphia and
Reading Company entered into alleged pos
session of portions of the lands by buying
out a multitude of squatters, one by one.
The balance of the lands were bought upon
tax titles, which we shall endeavor to inval
idate. By these means 20 contiguous tracts
were secured, but we shall attack the whole
series of acquirements as being in non-conformity
-with legal provisions. Since its
first entries upon the land the Beading has
opened and operated 30 or 40 collieries,from
which at least 2,000,000 tons of coal are an
nually mined and sold, approximating at
least a third of the annual business of the
Beading Bailroad and constituting one of
its most important coal fields.
"The present proceedings are the culmina
tion of six ejectment suits filed over a month
since, which were intended to lead to a
comparison of titles. At the same time the
company brought three suits for damages to
the extent of $2,000,000 based on mesne
profits. The formal bill of complaint filed
to-day alleged succinctly the above facts,
and also set forth and alleged that the
- Philadelphia and Beading Bailroad, and
the Beading Coal and Iron Company two
separate offenders, but joined in tne issue
are practically bankrupt and are unable to
be responsible lor any coal miped from the
lands while these ejectment suits await
adjudication. We also allege that the two
companies are about to
ENTEB INTO A TEUST,
the Beading's pet scheme, for the control of
the anthracite coal market. I believe that
the evidence we have goes to show that the
Baltimore and Ohio, Pennsylvania, Lehigh
Valley, Delaware and Hudson, Delaware
and Lackawanna, Erie, Jersey Central and
Beading Railroads were to be the compo
nent members of the trust, which was to be
of great magnitude. "We therefore ask that
the Beading be enjoined from entering this
trust or from mining and carrying away any
coal from these lands pending a judicial de
termination of the title thereto, and the al
ternative relief of a receiver for the property.
The bill of complaint also charges that
quantities of valuable timber are being cut
and carried away, and asks for relief from
Speaking of the general aspect of the suit,
Mr. Vinton said: "In addition to the cita
tion of damages, we further claim that the
lands are mortgaged for far beyond their
value to the detriment of the title, and that
the creditors of the two companies have
been fraudulently misled. We also claim,
and I think shall prove, that the assets of
the companies are extinct, and that the
wrongful possession of these lands enables
them to prolong corporate life to the direct
injury ot the Bobert Morris Land and Coal
Company. "We1 also claim that since March,
1889, the Beading Company has ceased to
issue reports as to financial condition, and
the discontinuance is because the report, if
issued, would show increased financial de
ficiency and insolvency. "We also ask for
an injunction against the transfer of
any land during the pendency of
the litigation. The President of
the road, Mr. Austin Corbin, was
injudicious enough to rush into print, stat
ing thajt, right or wrong, litigation would be
maintained long enough by his company to
enable it to exhaust the coal lands and de
preciate their value thoroughly. This utter
ance somewhat hastened our action, besides
making our bill of complaint much more
comprehensive as a matter of self-protection.
The allegations we make in regard to the
pending trust in the anthracite trade will
make a sensation in trade circles, but it, as
well as other allegations in our suit, are
based upon most searching inquiry and a
painstaking collection of evidence having a
bearing upon all phases of the suit.
BIO LAWYEBS INTERESTED.
The following are the prayers of the plain
tiffs as contained in the bill of complaint:
X. That Your Honors may impound the
rents, issues, product and profits of said
land and each and every part and portion
of it, and appoint a receiver for the same.
IL Tbata writ of discovery may issue.
I1L That an order may be made prohib
iting and restraining the said defendants
from mining, shipping, consuming, carry
ing away, or selling, the antbracite coal,
from, upon, or within said linds, or any
part or portion thereof; and from cntting,
felling, carrying awav. burninir. or wasting.
the timber from said lands, until the rights J
of, your orators snail be ascertained and es
tablished by this honorable court; or that an
injunction issue to restrain tne said delend
ants until they give full and adequate se-
carity to protect tout orators against the
commission of waste upon these lands and
against damage or loss arising or accruing
to your orators by reason of the said defend
ants' mining, carrying away, or selling coal
therein or therefrom, and cutting, burning
and removing timber therefrom.

A BET0RNED PITTSBUBGER TALKS
Of How the Bonlanzer Craze Was Magni
fied in America.
FEW HATS OFF, ETEN FOE A PRESIDENT
Charles Bobinson, lately appointed to the
superintendency of the Ponco schools,
Indian Territory, arrived in this city from
Paris several days since. He had resided
in Paris since 1886, where he worked
with the Westinghous Airbrake Company.
In an interview he said to a Dispatch re
porter: "The French people are slowly but surely
recognizing their immense responsibility as
citizens of a republic, for the best thinking
people of Paris are conservative. Any step
they take toward enlargement of popular
rights is done with great deliberation.
"Bonlanger, thongh elected in Paris, is
not really popular. At the time of his
election I noticed the American press full
of sensational accounts of large and en
thusiastic crowds cheering for Boulangcr.
PABIS WAS IMPERVIOUS.
"I was in Paris, and,beyond a few coster
mongers and a few of the lowest and jront
element making a feint at a demonstration,
Paris was impervious to him or his election.
"President Carnot and his Cabinet are
popular in France. I believe they have the
best interests of the people at heart It sur
prised me at the opening of the Exposition,
however, when Carnot came under the dias,
to see how qnietly everything passed.
Beyond the raising of a few hats and a quiet
'Vive le Carnot,' no demonstration took
The reporter asked Mr. Bobinson about
the condition of the working people in
France, and he replied: "The workingman
is not so well paid, and so lives, generally,
much poorer than the American. A skilled
mechanic can make about 14 cents an hour,
or if he is working by piece work, about 19
or 20 cents an hour. The laborer will only
make from 8 to 10 cents. The living may
be a little cheaper, as the French live in
flats and are willing to climb to procure
THE TOWES AND PATRIOTISM.
"Eiffel Tower, from a mechanical stand
point, is a magnificent structure. From
base to summit perfect symmetery is ob
served. I ascended the tower on the 4th
of July and had a small American flag,
and, in company with a few other friends
cheered the great day and sang the 'Star
Spangled Banner.' The unveiling of the
Statute of Liberty on the Eil de Grenelle
was a great event, and Whitelaw Beid made
a great speech. One could easily observe
that the French people had a deep rever
ence for our American nation.
"Clothing in Paris costs about the same
as in America; produce generally is cheaper;
but meat runs as high as 45 cents a pound."

dane blessings. Sound digestion is a guaranty
