The sensational damage cast- of
Mary Maharra against Oeorgo Kendall
for $10000 came on far trial in tlio
United State district court yesterday
before a jury and occupied tho entire
day. Tho plaintiff appeared in person
and by her attorneys Oeorgo Gardner
and Hub ton & Huston and tho defend-
ant in person and by His attorney?
Asp Shartcl & CoUloghatn.
The plaint'ff was the first witness
called in her own behalf and told her
story in substance as follows:
"During the fair In October a year
ago I was occupying and running the
Kendall house at the corner of Okla-
homa and Vine streets as a rooming
houso for gcutlomon. I returned from
the fair about 5 o'clock in tho after-
noon and found Rondel I who was
occupying one of tho rooms In tho
house on the back porch with two
women Mrs. McCoy nnd Hello McCoy
who had arrived on the noon train
from the north that day. and who had
been in my bedroom with Kendall until
I went to dress to go to tho fair. They
all tureo went to supper together and
returned to the house aflev half an
hour's absence all three going to
Kendall's bedroom and remaining half
an hour or so after which Kendall
and Hells McCoy came out. leaving
Mrs McCoy still in the bedroom and
went up stairs together remaining in
one of the bedrooms until about H
"After they came down stairs 1 went
and pushed the bedroom dojr open
and told Kendall he could not keep
those women thure any longer ls I
would not have such conduct in u
house I was having; anythlug to do
with lie coul 1 take them to the
Sherman house or the south bottom?
where they belonged. Thereupon
tho women went out into the
street and Kendall returned into the
house much after the manner of an
enraged bull. He said 'Now you
hmve made a alee d 11 fool of your-
self havn't you 01 derlng those ladies
out of the house now you get out of
the house yourself you you d
b you fiend of h 1 ' With that ho
grabbed mo by the arm and throw mo
violently across the room against tho
sowing machine which was sotting by
the door dislocating my knee cap and
permanently lajuriug my 6ide and
picked up a gun sitting In tho room
and raised it as if to strike mo but I
caught it with ray hands no swore
at mo droadfully and wo sou tiled out
into tho kitchen and he triad to put
me out of the nouse but did not suc-
ceed A few days after that Kendall
came to the house In a hurry and told
mo to get ray things packed up at onco
as lie had lonted the house to a man
from Mulhall for a food store and a
carpenter would bo thoro at onco to
take out the partitions I went to
work and gathored up ray things
which Kendall jammed into boxes and
loaded onto a dray which he had in
front of the door and told me ho
would give me $35 to locato myself
with as he had given mo no notico to
Icavo. Ho rode off on tho dray to the
depot and came back with a ticket to
St. Joseph Mo it bill of lading for
my goods and $7 In cash which ho
offered me and said 'Now you take
this ticket and. get out of town g
d -n j ou on this very train. You
have got to go. and I'll aee by g that
you do go.' I told him I would not go
as be had still kept part of ray goods
and 1 had no business In St Joe but
did have in Outbrlo. I did not go but
am here yet. After I had moved to
the rooms over Wallace & Mullcr's
drug store Kendall oatni into my room
one day without knocking with a
reeeipt In full sstUfaetlon written out
and 874 In money and demanded that I
lake the money and sign the receipt
in full settlement of ail my damages
He said be was rieb and I was poor
and be would have the oao put off and
put off and wear mo out and I would
got nothing In the end. I was almost
on the verge of starvation and he
threatened to have me arrested for
dauderlng Hello McCoy and send me
to tho penitentiary it I did not
sottle and firstly compelled mo to
take the money and sign tho receipt.
I repudiated the settlement afterward
and my attorneys nave U.iders' the
money I received baek into out for
tho defendant"
M s Maharra was on tho stand rom
0 o'eloek till 4 d m. And was subjected
to a very rigid cross-examination by
Mr. Sbartel dTiq " which she wept
A demurrer to the evidence of the
plaintiff was interposed by the defend-
ant on tho ground that her evidence
disclosed that she signed the contract
of compromise of her own will and not
on account of duress or threats and
coercion on tho part of tho plaintiff.
Tho court sustained the demurrer and
rendered judgment for the defendant.
In rendering his opinio a tho court said
that Kendall's threats when lie
effected tho settlement were no more
than a reasonable porson would expect
from an adversary in a lawsuit and
(he should not havo beea li.fluonccd
by them. I? urthermoro sho did not
el set to repudiate the settlement with
la a rcnsonablo time but went ahead
and spent tho money ho gavo her and
did not tender It back for two months
thus showing that sho fully intended
to abldo by tho compromise until sho
concluded sho had not received enough.
Tho evidenco further showed that
Kendall gave her other valuables be-
sides money in the settlement which
she lias kept to thU day
The ease will bo appealed. This
case completes tho cases for trial by jury
for this term and tho potlt jury will
likely be discharged this morning.
A large number of court cases will
o;cupy tho time of tho court next
week. It is the purpose of Judge Dale
to adjourn next week giving members
of tho bar a week beforo tho election
to devoto to tho campaign.

Ki:w Yonrc OoL 10. Tho anthracite
Coal Operators' assoclptiou held a meet-
ing nt tho Wnldorf yesterday with
forty-eight members present. A report
wns road on tho possibilities of export-
ing coal to Germany. At tho conclusion
of the discussion which followed tho
sclicino was decided to bo wholly im-
practicable the principal reason being
the inability of tho anthracite coal
dealers to compote with tho product of
Wales Welsh coal now selling in Ger-
many for SO per ton while it would
cost 85 per ton to transport Amorlcan
coal noross tho water. William Griffith
of Scranton Pa. read letters from coal
operators In San Francisco complain
ing that the importation of Welsh coal
to that city hod entirely destroyed tho
Pennsylvania coal trade. It was shown
that alxHit 100000 tons of Welsh coal
were received there annually and sold
from $5.50 to 50 per ton while tho
frolght nlono on Pennsylvania coal to
the Pacific coast oither by rail or wa-
ter was 87 per ton so tho coal must bo
sold for 512 per ton to net a profit
In n paper on wtiHto and burdens of
tho anthracite coal trado John C. Had-
dock called attention to the very groat
dlfforonco between the price tho oper-
ator secured and that wltiah tho con-
sumer paid and pointed out tho vory
largo amount paid for freight aud com-
missions to middle mon.

CENmnviLLC Mo. Oct 10. A triple
tragedy occurred in this Reynolds
county yosterday on Logan's cicck
near Ellington formerly HnrnesvlUe.
John Imbodcn with an nx brained his
sister nbout 13 years of age his
brother some older who was sick in
bed and a very old man named Jncob
Wllhelm. Tho girl and Wilhelm were
killed in tho yard. He then entered
the house and killed his brother. Two
younger sisters escaped to their father
who was at work in a cornfield. They
then went to a neighbor and gave the
alarm fearing to return to tho house.
When the citizens mid constablo col-
lected and returned. Imbodcn was in
the yard where two of his victims lay
with the bloody ax In his hand. Tho
officer had to threaten to shoot him be-
fore he would surrender. Two months
ago Imbodcn lost his wife and two
daughters suddenly and it is supposed
that this together with a hard spell of
sickness has deranged his mind. He
was a prominent citizen. Excitement
