8 THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-WJiUiN'JilSUAV, OCXOUEK 22, 1902. A NEW TRIAL WAS REFUSED i JUDGE ARCHBALB'S DECISION IN ItOBINSON CASE. 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 eotnmlttV.ng 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 jury, 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. Grnnd Jury's Report.

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.
