CLERK IS NECESSARY.
Assessor Seamans Shows That the
Amount Asked for This Year Is
Lower Than Previous Years.
City Assessor Jay G. Seamans in a
slulement made to a Tribune man yes
terday afternoon declared that the
services of a clerk are absolutely In
dispensable In the city assessor's oillco
nncl sought to show that instead of
making an exorbitant demand this
year the assessors are actually asking
for less than they have In past years.
He produced the following statement
showing the expenses of the depart
ment for the fiscal year, IDOO.-'Ol.

The amount of $l,r29, included In tVie
above statement, was appropriated this
present year as a detlcicncy for the
fiscal year 1000-01 and can properly be
Included as part of tho actual running
expenses for the year 1900-01,
"We can't do without a clerk," said
Air. Seamans, "some of tho members of
the estimates committee to tho con
trary notwithstanding. The salaries of
the clerks in every other city depart
ment except the treasurer's is paid by
the city, and there can be no good rea
son advanced why the salary or our
clerk should not also bo paid by the
"It is idle to say that we do not need
a clerk. We are away from our office
for four or five months every year, and
IL is absolutely essentlul that some one
be left in charge to receive visitors and
answer inquiries. A vast amount of de
tail work remains for the clerk to do
during the lest of tho ycai, and until

FOR THE JURY
EVIDENCE IN THE DUFFIN
CASE ALMOST ENDED.
Defense Produces a Raft of Wit
nesses to Show That tho Plaintiff
Suffered from Extremely Dofectivo
Vision Before tho Time of tho Ac
cident Dr. Longstreet and MIbs
Duffln Flatly Contradict Dr. Boos
Four Judges Engaged in the Trinl
of Common Picas Cases.
Nearly ull the testimony In the Duf
fln case Is in una it will go to the jury
The city occupied nearly all of yes
terday In the presentation of testi
mony tending to show that tho phy
sical disorders Miss Duflln alleges aro
tho result of the nccldent of Nov. 4,
1893, nre due to other causes, and exist
ed prior to the nccldent.
One of tho prlnclpnl aliments that
Miss Duilln nllcges In consequent of
tlie accident is blindness of one eyo
and partial blindness In tho other. A
raft of witnesses were produced by tho
defense to show that her eyes were In
tills condition long before the accident
One of these witnesses, Mrs. W. K.
Dolnn, could not bo brought into court,
nnd her testimony as given at the
prior trial was read from the stenog
rapher's notes. It was In effect that
three years before tho accident tho
plaintiff was a frequent visitor at the
homo of Mrs. Dolan's parents nnd that
it was then readily apparent she was
very defective In vision. Sho would
enter a room without recognizing tho
presence of another party until the
second party spoke or made a noise
to attract her attention, and nt table,
instead of directly grasping anything
passed to her, she would have to feel
about for it until her band would come
in contact with It.
SIGHT WAS IMPAIRED.
Dr. L. M, Gates, whose testimony
was largely responsible for the grant
ing of a new trial after the first ver
dict of $7,000, was the next to testify.
He told that on April 1, 1894, nnd less
than a year after the accident. Miss
Duflln came to his office for treatment.
Sho stated then that her sight hud
been Impaired for a number of years
and that she was fearful of becoming
totally blind. She made lio mention
whatever ot the accident.
The defense a'ttempted to show by
Dr. Gates what caused the impair
ment of vision, but objection was made
by the plaintiff's counsel and under
the net of 1S93 it was ruled out. Dr.
Joseph F. Grant nnd Dr. Gilbert Mur
ray were also called for this purpose
but on the same ground their evidence
was declared to be inadmlssable.
M. W. Kelly, of Madison avenue,
who claimed he knew Miss DttlTin in
1590, when sho taught a private school
on Gibson street, testified that ho
played euchre with her as a partner
tit the Cummlngs' home In that year,
nnd that he readily observed she was
near-sighted. She read the cards with
great effort and invariably had to hold
her band within a few inches of her
The witness created considerable
merriment by some of his answers and
set the whole court in roars when he
referred to City Solicitor AVatson as
"General Watson" and explained that
there were so many colonels nnd ma
jors on the other side he thought the
defense ought to have a good military
title for at least one of Its two repie
senlatives. COLONEL PROTESTED.
Colonel Fitstslnnnons protested
against whnt he was pleased to char
acterize as invidious comparisons by
Implication and an effort to rob Major
Wan en, Colonel Martin, Dragoon
O'Malley and himself of their military
Miss Ella Shaw, a dressmaker, testi
fied to having met Miss Duflln at
Mitchell's dining robin, on Linden
street, In 1S93, a year before the acci
dent, nnd that Mis Duflln besought
her to go Into partnership, as she, Miss
Duflln, was no longer able to do all
kinds of dressmaking, because of her
Samuel Newman, Superintendent or
Police Lonn B. Day, Vemn Long, Mis.
Frances Mitchell. M. J. Mitchell, May
Leonard, all testliled that Miss Duilln
took her meals at Mitchell's dining
looms In 1S92, and that It was notice
able to everybody her eyesight was ex
tremely poor. When she counted change
she woyld have to hold it close to her
eyes; In cutting meat on her plate she
would bend close to the table; on en
teilng or leaving she would have to feel
around for the handle of the door, and
In passing along through the dining
loom she would have to feel her way.
Dr, W. E. Allen, superintendent of
the bureau of health, testified that ho
examined Aliss Duflln a year nyo and
found no conditions existing thai would
cause the Incontinence she complains
of, or tho neurt'Hthenio disorders she
aveis sho suffers from,
Dr, C, H. Fisher was tho last witness
for the defense. Ho told of having ex
amined Miss Duflhi's eyes in 1S9S, and
gavo it as his opinion that their con
dition was not duo lo the accident of
which sho complains against the city.
Dit. UOOS BECAME ANQItY.
Tho plaintiff called Dr. S. P. Long
slrcet as tho first witness In rebuttnl.
He stated positively that nt tho time
Miss Duflln was at his omcc to bo ex
amined by tho defendant's physicians,
Dr, Hi O, lloos nnd Dr. J, 13. O'llrlen,
Dr. Hoob becntnn nngry when Miss
Dttnin refused to let him participate In
tho examination, because lie was "an
nvowed enemy nnd personally ob
noxious," nnd that ho turned upon her
nnd .declared, "You have no case, and
1 will knock you out in court."
Miss Duflln was then called and cor
roborated Dr. Longstreet as to Dr.
lloos' alleged utterance, Sho then pro
ceeded to-deny explicitly various ot the
allegations, made by the defendant's
witnesses, which tended to show that
she was nearly blind long before the
accident took place.
Sho never suggested partnership to
Miss Shaw, for her friend, Judge Hund
ley, had advised her against ever goliieT
Into partnership, Sho never bent over
her plate when cutting meat in tho
Mitchell dining room, unless It wns
when necessary to put weight on tho
knife to dissect the Mitchell dining
Tho Mitchells nnd their friends were
unfriendly to her, Miss Duflln tried to
show, by reason of u dispute resulting
from her charges for making a dress
for Mrs. Mitchell. Sho llatly denied that
sho told Dr. Gates that sho had had
trouble with her eyes for many years,
What she did tell him was that she had
had an operation performed in Phila
delphia, when she wns a girl, to euro a
"squint" In one eye. She never played
cards at the Cummlngs' home, Bhe suld,
and positively repudiated the distinc
tion of the humorous Mr. Kelly's com
pany as a partner In euchre.
She did not go to Dr. Roos' ofllce on
November 22, but did go there early in
December, nnd had the experience of
being rudely ejected, so sho says, when
she offered only $G on her bill of $25.
Mrs. Mitchell was recalled for further
cross-examination, but did not respond.
AVhen City Solicitor Wtason and As
slstunt Solicitor Davis were Informed
that the only testimony the plaintiff
wanted from Mrs. Mitchell wns that
the Mitchells had the contract for fur
nishing meals to the city for prisoners
nt the station house, they agreed to ad
mit It of record.
There may be some further rebuttal
and sur-rebuttal testimony this morn
ing, but at tho most It will not take up
more than an hour.
City Solicitor AVatson will argue the
chso for the defense, and Major AA'ar
ren for tho plnlnttff. The speeches and
Judge Gordon's charge will likely con
sume the whole day.
Four Judges Presiding.
Four judges were presiding yesterday

Ruland, deceased, Tho principal con
test was, with respect to u large clulm

The purpose of the special session Is
to clear up .the cases that will be left
over fiom the regular February term.
There are two murder trials and a
number of other big cases on tho regu
lar list, and this, it is almost a surety,
will make It impossible to reach all of
the 334 cases in the two weeks of the
regular term. Cases left over will be
