JESSUP CASE IS ENDING
Charge of Judrje McFhcrson Will Be
Made This Morning.
ARGUMENTS TO THE JURY
Major Everett Warren Closed Case for
Defendant, and Attorney S. B. Price,
for Plaintiffs-Jury Warned Not to '
Consider Case I'ntil Judge Speaks.
Major Everett Warren made the ar
gument to the Jury In the Jessup case
and Attorney S. B. Price argued on the
side of the plaintiff. Judge McPherson
will chnrge the Jury this morning and
in speaking to the Jury at adjournment
and requesting them to be in their
pluces promptly at 9 o'clock this morn
ing, he bade them to not only not
spi-ak to any person or among them
selves about the case, or oven to con
sider It in their minds until after they
hear the churge of the court.
Attorney W. J. Tracey was called by
the defendant yesterday morning. Ten
years ago he was a member of the firm
of Hamlin & Tracey, of the Wayne
county bar. The Scranton City bank
sent to the firm a note to collect drawn
by E. M. Lancaster ftnd endorsed by
W. J. Kelsel. The money was to be
collected from Kelsel as Lancaster had
failed. Mr. Tracey remembered that
the note was not collected because the
endorser had no money or property.
This is one of the notes that Assignee
Ounster has charged to the Indebted
ness of Cashier Jesaup.
Ex-Judge Jessup wus recalled in ref
erence to the $10,000 cortlllcate of de
posit of Mr. Beardslee. The latter had
a Judgment ot $10,000 against Mr.
Dolph and assigned it to John H. Fel
lows, who gave his check for the same
amount to Mr. Jessup as attorney for
Mr. Beardslee. The check was placed
In the Third National bank and Mr.
Beardslee got a certificate of deposit.
Ex-Justice Hand was called to the
stand in relation to another note.
Knew Nothing About It.
Attorney Merrlfleld was called In di
rect examination by the defendant.
Major Warren handed him a paper
signed by Charles Tropp, the substance
of which was that Cashier Jessup's in
debtedness had been satisfactorily ar
ranged and that in consequence the
directors had entered a nolle prosequi
to the action brought against the cash
ier in criminal court for wrecking the
bunk. Mr. Merrlfleld did not know
anything about the paper.
He was shown the assignment of $25,
000 by Dr. B. H. Throop after the bank
failed and said that his impression of
the account to which this amount was
Intended to be ?ut was not to reduce
the cashier's Indebtedness, but the lia
bility of the directors.
The deed of trust for the sale of the
coal lands was offered In evldenoe. The
minutes of the bank of April 4, 1882,
were then offered In evidence and read
to show that the bank had specially em
powered Air. jessup to discount any pa
per he considered good, and that the
bank was liable for Mr. Jessup's errors
of Judgment, and therefore that Mr.
Jessup's bondsmen Bhould not pay
tnese DP.a notes.
The defendants rested and the plain
tiffs called W. C. Conwell In rebuttal.
He testified that Dr. Throop was a
large depositor of the Scranton City
bank, and that It was mutually ar
ranged between the . doctor and the
other directors that he would pay In
$25,000 to help square up accounts with
the depositors, and that this money
would be regarded as relieving him
from any further liability ub a director
of the bank.
l'opor That lie Signed.
The witness was a member of the
depositors' committee of the bank, and
he said he did not sign any raner to the
effect that the affairs of Cashier Jessup
were satisfactorily arranged. He
signed a paper agreeing to release the
cashier from liability to criminal nros-
ecutlon for wrecking the bank, but he
did not think that such a paper was a
waiver or all debts and liabilities of
Mr. Jessup or his bondsmen to tho
Assignee Ounster was the last wit
ness heard, and when his testimony re
lating to certain accounts In the books,
was heard the case closed and the at
torneys prepared to argue law points.
In the afternoon the arguments to the
Major Warren's argument to the Jury
was an exhaustive review of the evi
dence and the law applying to the lia
bility of debtors in cases similar to
the one tried. He maintained that the
defendants had proven that Mr. Jes
sup's indebtedness to the bank had
been all satisfactorily arranged, and
that no further UlabilltleB exist for
which the bondsmen are responsible.
According to the assignee the In
debtedness of tho bank when It failed
was $140,000. Of this amount there had
been raised from the sale of Mr. Jes
sup's coal lands, $73,000. The money
which Dr. Throop set aside in the $25,
000 from his deponlts in the bank for
the benefit of the depositors was that
much ofr the liabilities of the cashier.
Major Warren summed up the various
amounts that were applied from time
to time on the liabilities of the cashier
and showed that more than $140,000 had
been raised and that there now exists
nq such disparity as -$38,006 yet to be
accounted for. - -
Argument for tho Plaintiff.
Attorney Price's argument for the
plaintiff Was no less comprehenslvo
than that of the defendants' counsel,
and it covered every detail of the case.
It was devoid of any attempt to work
on the minds of the Jurors, but was a
logical and convincing; presentation of
the- evidence. He maintained that the
defendants are responsible for the mak
ing good of $38,000 due on the Indebted
ness of Cashier Jessup to the bank and
that the $25,000 assigned by Dr. Throop
from his deposits was not a part of the
contribution to the wiping out of the
cashier's liability to the bank.
TWO COURT CASES.
The Jury that heard the case of Mrs.
Fenner against 'Squire J. B. Lesh, of
Newton, did not agree upon a verdict

ft GREAT LABOR ADDRESS
Vice President McGuire, of the Amer
icas Federation, ot the Armory.
MAYOR CON NELL CHAIRMAN
Central Labor Union and City Trade Or
ganisation. Paraded the Street. Be
fore the Lecture-Meeting Was
I'ndcr Carpenter.' Auspices.
TraAom iintnn men Of Scranton Were
addressed at the Thirteenth regiment
armory last evening by P. J. McOulre.
of Philadelphia, vice president of the
American Federation ot Laoor, a man
who la well known in this city, and
whose eloquent and scholarly presenta
tion or the labor question ib rrpicn.
wlth advanced Ideas and brilliant sug
gestiveness. The Central Labor union
and the various trades unions of the
city had arranged for a creditable pa
rade, but the weather was unpropl
tlous and the street display was ab
breviated. All were anxious to reach the armory
and hear Mr. Mi-C.uire. A large as
semblage of carpenters, bricklayers,
painters, plumbers and other mechan
ics greeted him. The Lawrence band
played p.n overture and Mayor W. L.
Connell, chairman of the evening, step
ped forward to o;n the meeting. He
said he felt that It was not necessary to
say much, he being among them al
ways; but any who were anxious to lis
ten to his voice, could be accommodated
by coming before him any morning.
He felicitated the mechanics and bade
them success, then he introduced the
speaker of the evening.
Mr. McOulre is a uengntrui contrast
to the blatant demagogue or blustering
walking delegate. There was food for
thought in his every sentence. He was
gratified to know that the mayor of
the city has confidence In the trades
union men, and he urged them to con
tinue In the enjoyment of that confi
dence, aiming also to achieve the con
fidence of the public In full measure.
With all tho bigotry and selfishness
that the unions hove to contend against
the members, many of them, regarding
their Individual Interests above the col
lective welfare, it is marvelous that
they struggled through.
Suffer for Duty's Sake.
Men suffer because they stand up for
union rules and for shorter hours of
labor. This country was never intend
ed to be based on cheap labor. Men
have fled from other countries from
the oppression and wrongs of centuries,
and when they came to America, they
hoped to enter upon a different plane,
but it rests with the people themselves
to secure the things that they fled from
other countries to obtain in this land of
Thirty-five years ago not a million
aire was to be found in this land, nor a
pauper nor tramp, and the wealth of
the nation was sixteen billions of dol
lars; now It has been augmented to
nearly seventy billions and 5,400 mil
lionaires have sprung up, while 10,000
paupers have been manufactured; for
every palace built there have been
hundreds on miserable hovels. While
wealth has Increased fourfold wages
has decreased 35 per cent, since 1860.
The speaker cited statistics to show
the wages paid thirty years ago In
the boot and Bhoe business, and what
Is now earned, and also showing that
not alone among the machinists and
boot and shoe workers has wages gone
down, but the same rule applies to
miners and to the workers In textile
factories, and In no place has wages
advanced, except where organized la
bor has stood up. Employers do not run
their business out of philanthropy.
Syndicates, combinations and rail
road corporations organize and unite
their Interests and control with their
vast power the law making bodies.
Judge Grossenp Scored.
Mr. McOulre roundly scored the fed
eral magistrate, Judge Grosscup, of
Chicago, for sentencing President Debs
to prison. He said good corporation
lawyers are now on the benches ready
to s.rvo the beck and call of corporate
Going back to the question of wages.
the speaker said that In 1870 the aver
age earning for each person annually
was $430, now it has fallen to $309, less
than $1 a day at the rate of 316 work
ing days in a year. If labor maintained
the relation to wealth through the
years since 18fi0 the wnges would not be
$10,370,000,000 and the wealth $50,630,
000,000. He asked If It Is right that the
ones who toll should have only bread
and butter and no prospect for a home
or their own.
The United States statistics show
that crime has increased 200 fold in
thirty years, and there are tramps In
abundance In a land that is filled with
plenty. Men become political slaves
as much as they do Industrial slaves.
Some will say that it Is Intemperance
among the working classes that keens
them so poor. These do not take into
consideration the squalid surroundings,
the dismal expectations that drive the
poor to the glare and glitter of the
suloon. Give the worker decent wages,
give him a chance, and then the drunk
ard has no excuse.
Mr. McOulre paid a noble tribute to
Miss Frances Wlllard, national presi
dent of the Women's Christian Temper
ance union. He met her on shipboard
and was glad to know that she now ad
vocates that all or the greater part of
Intemperance can be eradicated by giv
ing to worklngmen better conditions.
Reason for Panic.
The aneaker assigned as the reason
for panics that there are a few bad
and selfish men whose lives are cramp
ed to attain wealth, the Jay Goulds.
Vanderbilts, Stanfords, Crockers and
Huntlnardons: there are about a dozen
of this class and they say what the
price of flour shall be and regulate the
supply of other commodities in like
manner. Tney nave unumiieu, un
rhcked nower and public opinion Is
afraid to utter a single protest; this
oligarchy Is more powerful than the
slaveowners of old, and Is entrenching
itself behind the military, the Judiciary
and tho legislative assemblies, xso. pro
test la ever heard, except it be from
some single lecturer on a labor plat
form or a plaintive cry from some la
bor Journal bidding; the working people
of Israel to rise up and oppose It.
He compared capital to slavery and
nredlrted that the former would as
surely be routed from Its dictatorial
throne by tne rreeman s weapon, me
ballot. Just as the latter waa wiped
out through the blood of the union
soldiery. He gave an interesting con
trast of the procedure In tradesunions

13,000 men employment, and the wages

millions of dollars per year. In De

meet in New York and formulate a
plan by which the eight-hour day will

This will be done without strike, or
What Have Non-Union Men Dona.
He wished to know what haa the
non-union man done for the good of
trade. Some are afraid to Join the
union because their employera might
be offended. The labor question Is so
powerful that William B. Gladstone
was forced to admit its atrength; tbe
French cabinet recently dissolved be
came of It. failure to harmonise cer
tain disjointed tabor forces. la sup.
port of his advocating the patronising
of noma Industries he said that the
cheap doors and sashes that come from
the lumber factories of tbe Northwest
are made out of the flesh and blood of
little children, where there are 3,600
little girls working in the planning
mills of Wisconsin ond Minnesota at
the rate of $1.60 to $2 a week.
In England a Lancashire lasa will
not marry a lad unless he belongs to
the local union of whatever craft he is
engaged in. To show that there ia
nothing unpatriotic - about trades
unions, he said that it was In Carpen
ters' hall, Philadelphia, where the first
meeting was held that fostered the
struggle for liberty. The only thing
really foreign now, said he, is the ten
dency to wear foreign products, raxor
pointed shoes and Van Dyke beards,
and the style among those who repre
sent themselves Americans Is to marry
their daughters to broken down dukes.

the calking and riveting are intact
and the keel plates practically unin
jured. The ship Is at present lying in
six feet of water and can Bafely re
main as long as necessary.
"In conclusion I submit:
'The ship was carefully docked and
every usual precaution was observed.
Bending of the brackets and floor plates
was due to the bending up of the end
of the cat blocks. The structural
strength ot the ship Is not affected.
"The effects produced would have
beeen entirely avoided if the ship had
been promptly undocked when paint
ing was completed, and not delayed to
cnange tne Bcrews."
Constructor Bowles concludes his re
port by recommending that the cracks
In the cement be repaired, which can be
done In twelve days at a cost of $300.
The recommendation of Constructor
Bowles as to repairs has been an
proved. The fact as to the extent of the
injuries sustained by the Texas will un
doubtedly come out on the steam trial,
If that should take place on the day in-
