'Wicker Sues the “Inter-Ocean, 51 Laying His Damages at $500,000. The Penalty that Attaches to the Publication ol So-Called "Sensations.” •The Inter-Ocean would Appear to hire been guilty of jmbliahing a moat scurrilous story, affecting the pri vate and domestic Ufa of one of our wealthiest citizens. Messrs, G. VT. Knox and n. A. Wilder, attorneys for Joel n. Wicker, are instructed by their client to insti tute proceedings against Mr. Scammon, for libel, $500,000 damages, particulars of which salt are oen- Uined in a bill just drafted, which wo hero summarize r The complainant affirms In his bill that, until the • committing of tho grievances complained of, he servedly obtained the good opinion and credit of his neighbors and dtlzsna generally; that he baa been a resident of the Otty of Chicago for thirty-two years, and has, by long-continued effort and Industry, accu mulated a largo amount of property, and was reputed to possess large wealth; that daring this time bo con tracted marriage and formed a home to Cnicago, where he was surrounded by his children; that in course of time his wife died, leaving him with tho caro of maintaining his household and family; and that. In conducting bis household affairs, it became necessary for him to employ certain help, and, among others, ho engaged Sarah Golan, who for several years continued to work In his household; that said Golan, by her becoming demeanor and faithful discharge of her duties, gained his favorably opinion, insomuch that he became very kindly dispos ed towards her, and Interested in her better education and advancement; that he conducted himself toward her with great kindness and generosity, and, in pursu- i once of his kindly regard for her, advised with her . about her welfare, and offered to provide her, at his expense, with the best of school advan tages, whlgh offer Golan accepted; that he did there after provide for Golan the best of educational advan tages, paying her expenses; that Golan, after tho expi ration of the time spent in her studies, did of her own choice return to his and ho thencciorth treated her as a member of Ins own family, and nos as an inferior, and provided her with a homo therein. He goes on, after much of the iame sort, to t-ay that after the return to plaintiff’s house, and being Instigated by persons nnlmown to him and who pre tended to be her friends, but who were In fact only seeking to use her aa a medium for obtaining from him a portion of his property, she began ungratefully and wickedly to contrive by various acts and devices la Inveigle plaintiff Into a marriage with her, intending thereby to become possessed of a largo part of his es tate ; that be utterly and absolutely resisted the at tempts ; that Golan, continuing to be instigated by said pretended friends, set np tho false and wicked pre tence that he had agreed to marry her. and, in pursu ance of said scheme, sued him for a large amount of money, to wit, $75,000, aa damages for the pretended violation of said pretended agreement; that, not satis fied with this wicked scheme, the pretended friends of Golan, with a still further idea of obtaining from him property, begin to harass and annoy him, and with a view of compelling him to marry Golan dogged his footsteps, and fr-lowed and assaulted him, and endeavored to break into his bouse at night, with tho Intent to do him great bodily injury if not to take his life; that ho was advised by his frienda to accept of their proffered protection and assistance, and for a long timo was compelled, through fear for hla personal security, and at great expense, to keep his house guarded at night, and to bo accompanied during tho day by sufficient protectors from their Intended vio lence; that through these long-continued harass menta be was rendered mirerable and wretched, and, in order to put a stop to tho terror and dread which accompanied his dally life, and with tho single object of relieving himself from tho danger to which hia life was daily exposed, with groat reluct ance, and protesting that hla action was not In fulfillment of any agreement with Golan, he was induced to ogreo to marry her, and wo* shortlv afterwards lawfully married to her in tho City of Chicago; that on tho 6th day of December, 1872, the defendant, proprietor and publisher of a dally newspaper In Chicago called the Inter-Ocean, diu libel him maUdoualy, by publishing In that paper a false statement concerning his relations with said Golan, and hia marriage with her, ono part of which libel stated that “her (Golan’s) charms proved too much for Mr. Wicker's susceptibility, and he finafly made her a proposition of marriage, which she accepted; no seems to horo xepented himself of hi* bargain some time after ward, and postponed the wedding day ” (meaning thereby that ho had not only proposed marriage to Golan, but had also appointed a day upon which to marry her). The libel further stated that he had employed and paid detectives to act os spies upon her actions, and to endeavor by the use of all arts and beguilements that money could procure to accomplish her departure from the path of virtue, and to secure tho utter ruin of her good fame and reputation ; tha* the minions did their work faithfully, but. were sig nally baffied and forced to report to then employer (meaning plaintiff); that during tho space of nearly two years h<s continued to pay the de tectives to spy upon Golan’s 'conduct, and to use all the arts and begnilemfnts hi* money could procure to accomplish her ruin; that in another part of the libel is contained the fol lowing libellous matter: “Then the fire came, and Mr. Wicker made tho pretext that ho was totally im poverished, and had not any longer means to support a wife ” (meaning that he admitted to Golan the pretend ed previous agreement to marry her), and In amKher pare of said libel was tho following matter: “Mr. Wicker put hef off with a plea of poverty until last summer, when she became at list convinced of his perfidy ” (meaning thereby that bo continued until last summer to admit to Gobiti tho pretended previous arrangement to marry her, but, not intending to do so, put off tho performance with a pretended plea of poverty until Golan became convinced of the so-called perfidy), and In another part of said libel occurs tbs following matter: “Lately, Wicker has mado over tures for compromise, beginning with tho declaration of hla willingness to consummate the marriage* (meaning that ho mado propositions to compro mise her suit against him. and acknowledging the pre tended engagement), and further “ ho claimed thal all bis property was gone, and that be had not a dollar in the world, and that to substantiate this he showed mortgages upon his property amounting to $580,826, and that he offered $5,000 to be let off.” Therefore, hf, Joel 11. Wicker, resolved to bring suit against tha newspaper called the Inter-Ocean, placing his damages therein at $500,000. CHECKS DRAWS BY CLEUKS, The T.lnblllty of a Hank for Paying Check* Signed by a Clerk After Expiry of Authori ty to Do «o~A Case of Interest to the Coni mcrclnl World—Snprcmo Coart Decision. Messrs, T-yr T|,n and Jackson send us the following opinion of the Supremo Court, by Judge Lawrence, ia the appeal of the Manufacturers' Lank of Chicago v. A. S. Barnes et ah: This action was brought by Barnes A Co. to rccovei from the bank a balance claimed to be due on deposit* made by the plaintiffs with the bank. The deposit* were admitted, but the defease set up was payment to the plaintlCTs clerk under the following circumstances. It appears that on tho 23d of June, 1870, Barnes, the resident partner at Chicago, and the only person au thorized to draw checks, being obliged to leave tbs city for a short time, gave to a clerk employed by him as bookkeeper and cashier a power of attorney authorizing him to draw checks on the bank for fifteen days. This power of attorney was lodged with tho bank, a conversation having been previously had with, the assistant cashier In regard to It. On the 7lh of July Barnes returned, and resumed the charge of hia business. Nevertheless, the clerk continued to draw occasional chocks, signing tho name of Barnes with tho initial letter of his own name, to indicate hla agency. Ho continued to check until the following January, the whole amount drawn being $»,&47.94. Of this sum, the clerk bad used $1,507.39 in paying debiS e r the firm, but without tho knowledge of Barnes. During the Interval, the bank-book bad boon several times written up, and the paid checks returned; but as this had been attended to by tho sama clerk, acting In hi* capacity of book-see per and cashier, the fact that ho bad been drawica chocks after the power of attorney bad expired was not discovered by the plaintiffs untb Jan uary. Judgment was obtained In th- Superior Court for the amount of chocks drawn by tho clerk less tho sum applied by him to tho debts of the firm, for which the plaintiffs gave tho hank credit. by the Court without a jury, and it is insisted tha Court erred In rendering judgment for am J sum than the amount chocked out by the J**"* the bank or pass-book of tho plaintiffs was wr.tten up caso of Weiser v. Denison, IO N. Y.. GB. Ther , a» . clerk bad drawn cuecks in the name of h.s -mnioT.r and tho paaa-book had boon several time up and tho chocks r-tnmed before discovery the fraud. Tho Court held that the balancing-of tho pass-book and tho return of the checks aro for the protocUon of the depositor, and not for that of the bank and tho fallnre of the depositor to examine the check* is not z .:ch negligence on bit part as to exoner ate tho bank from liability for the continued payment of checks Improperly drawn. We do not sgrre with counsel for regarding tho present caae a* stronger for the bank than that In the case before ns. The checks drawn by the Clerk showed upon thdr face they were drawn by him, and the bank knew, : by a document In lb* own possession, ami which bad been made the subject of a special conversation with one of Its officer*, that the clerk had authority to draw checks only for fifteen days from tho 22J of June. Tho facts that the plaintiff had been tho* careful to give the clerk express written authority, and to limit It to fifteen days, and to lodge this authority with the bank In pursuance of a previous arrangement, were snl&deni Co show the bank that the plaintiff had no Intention of giving to tho clerk a general authority to draw. The bank waa guilty of great negligence la paying checks of the clerk drawn after that period, and cannot be excused merely because the plaintiff failed to examine the returned check, which he had a right to presume had been drawn by himself alone. We consider the reasoning of tho New York Court of Ap peals, in the case cited, very satisfactory, and adopt iUL decision ts the better role. Judgment affirmed. 80 LaSaUe-at. NUMBER 216.
