Declared That Defcndnnt Has No
Eight to Recover from tlio Dela
wnro ond Hudson Company for In
juries Received by Falling Into a
Lyo Vnt Attention of Court Taken
Up Nearly All Day -with tuo Case
Against the Clark's Summit Dairy
and Condensary Company.
The complicated bankruptcy cuses of
A. J. Kennedy, et nl nnil Hrure Cook,
et nl acalnat the Clark Hummlt Dairy
nnd Conilenslnjr company, occupied the
nttentlon of .IUiIro Tt. W. Archbald and
n jury In the United Htntes district
court nearly all day yesterday, and
will probably bo continued all day to
day. Former JuiIrc K. X. Wlllard, repre
senting the plalntlffr, opened the case
nnd explained that It would he proven
to the satisfaction of the Jury that the
company transferred Its real estate to
Attorney George D. Taylor, of this city,
and Its personality to the Summit Dairy
company for the purpose of defrauding
Us creditors, thereby acts
of bankruptcy. The defense Is a denial
of Insolvency and a denial thai the
realty conveyed to Attorney Taylor was
In reality the property of the com
pany. A. II. Christy, cashier of the Coun
ty Suvlngs bank: John W. Fowler,
vice president of the Lackawanna
Trust and Safe Deposit company; Har
ry G. Dunham, cashier of the Dime
Deposit and Discount bank, and F. U
Phillips, former cashier of the Traders'
National bank, all testified that the
directors had borrowed $3,000 from each
of these banks, giving notes indorsed
liy all. Later they executed mortgages
nil the company's plant and gave them
to these several banks for the pur
pose of securing the endorsers of the
notes. The plaintiffs allege that this
showed an effort to Insure the claims
of (he directors to the exclusion of
other creditors.
Attorney Taylor on Stand.
Attorney George D. Taylor was put
on the stand when court opened in the
afternoon ond admitted that the prop
erty occupied by the company had
been deeded to him by a, Mabel D.
Kvnns for r.o mon 'nry consideration.
As far ns he knew this was done with
the knowledge of the dlivclnri..
George Rcemer, superintendent of thf
Hillside Home, who was president of
the Clark's Summit Dairy and Con
densing company at the time the al-l'-gcd
nets of bankruptcy were commit
ted, said he knew nothing of the trans
fer of the property to Taylor until af
ter it had been made. He had no un
derstanding with Taylor as to the dis
tribution of anv funds realized from
th" property. He had a knowledge of
the trnn.-fer of the personal property
to the Summit Dairy company, ns he
v. as president of the latter concern also.
The value of (he property so trans
ferred was about $11,000. he thought,
but the Clark's Summit Dairy and
(iindenstry company was Indebted to
the .Summit Dairy company for at. least,
vilf that amount. Ho did not know
whether or how the balance was paid.
Mabel G. Dvanr, who was n sten
ographer for Attorney II, N. Patrick,
testified that .she held the deeds in the
property occupied by the condeusrry
company in trust for Jits. Patrick and
had transferred litem at Mr. Patrick's
f-olicltatlou to Mr. Taylor. She had re
ceived nothing from the Utttrr.
Attorney Taylor was re-called and
tcsilfied that when he received the deed
to the property In question lie assumed
n J.'.OOO mortgage lo Frank 31. Spencer.
Attorney Arthur Dean threatened exe
cution, but hold off on Mr. Taylor's
promise to pay. That was over a year
ago, but the mortgage has not been
paid yet, he said.
Was Aware of It.
Mr. Taylor said he. knew the Sum
mit Dairy company was operating the
plant when the property was deeded
lo him.
"Who did you consider to be in pos
session?" asked .lodge 'Wlllard.
"I considered myself In possession,"
paid Mr. Taylor, "but I didn't go up
there. I didn't leave my offloc in con
nection with the .transaction."
Judge 'Wlllard 'sought lo show that
Mr. Taylor Is now seeking to recover
J2!i,000 In Insurance, and this caused At
torney Comegys to assert that he In
reality represented the insurance com
panies and not the three former cred
itors whom lie appears on the list ns
representing. Judge Wlllard Indignant
ly resented this assertion. The case
will likely take the best part of today
In the trying.
An argument on the rule to show
cause why a new trial should not be
granted in the case of William Kobtn
son against the Delaware and Hudson
company was mado in the afternoon
just prior to the resumption of the
bankruptcy case,
Hoblnson sued the company for
$:'5,000 damages for injuries received by
falling Into a vat of lye In the Carbon
dale yard of the company, This vnt
was used for removing the grease from
brass work, and was placed under
ground with a wooden cover overhead.
Ttobinson, who was an employe of the
company In this city, fell through this
cover In cutting across the yard on
his way home, after alighting from n
train, anil was badly burned. A suit
for $2.r,,000 was brought, contributory
negligence being alleged, and the case
wis non-suited by Judge Archbald on
points of law without sending It to the
Argued for Plaintiff.
Attorney Ira II, Burns appeared for
the plaintiff, and argued at length that
many of the questions which were
passed upon by the court nt the trlnl,
such as the question as to whether the
railroad yard was a permissive way and
ns to whether Itoblnson should have
been entitled to the rights of a pas
Benger, should have been left to the
consideration of the Jury,
Attorney I.ouls Carr, of Albany, X.
Y general counsel for the railroad
company, contended that no duty on
the port of the company existed In Hob
Inson's enno na In the case of an or
dinary passenger, paying his or her
fare. He stated that It Is n well
established point- In law that the owner
of private real estate, which is In no
sense a ptibllo thoroughfare, nre not
obliged to look after the safoty of per
sons traversing It. Permission to use
such property does not Imply core of
the safely of persons accepting such
permission, ho said.
Judge Archbald refused the motion
for a new trial. The plaintiff, ho said,
did not carry the rights of an ordinary
passenger nnd the company could not
bo compelled to safeguard his passage
over the property In question. He
must accept the perils of such passage,
he said, The points decided by him
were not fit matter for passage upon
by a Jury, ho said.

Wall Street Review.
New York, Oct. 21. Trading In the Block
market, unlay was light in volume, very
narrow and devoid of any noteworthy
feature. The formal settlement of the
coal Mtlkc. excited little Interest. There
was Just a bare susge.stton of activity at
the opening, but tliir. was almost alto
getbep due to moderate buying for nc
coimt of the western specula live contin
gent. Tho market soon became very dull
and save for n few spasmodic ralllea con
tinued so to the end. Missouri Padlic's
unfavorable showing for August caused
heavy sellhift, with an extiemo decline of
2 points. Much ot the selling came from
one of the pools that had ben prominent
in the stack market. The other standard
railway issues were comparatively neg
lected the greater part of the day. their
places being taken by the minor Indus,
trials, such an American Hide and leath
er, Leather. Rubber Goods, L'nitcd Stales
Kubber and a. few other In tlio same class,
all of which appeared to be subjected to
manipulation. Operations throughout Mio
day were almost altogi thor of a. profes
sional character, und at no time did the
list reflect any public Interest. Total sales
fll.l.SOO shares. Tho speculative bond is
sues showed weakness and the market
was under pressure throughout. Total
sales, par value. $l,73r.i)oo. l'nitcd States
bonds were all unchanged on the lust call.
