Tlie Court Thought That the Kecorder of _ % • V . New York Exceeded Hla Authority, V ^ut He Granted the Prose- . \ cutlng OfflcerajjS Delay. NEW YORK, Dec. 7.—The Aub-Langer-toan case was transferred to the supreme court today. Walter L. S. Langerman tvas brought before Justice Andrews on a writ of habeas corpua -obtained by his counsel,. Golonel R. J. Haire.. A writ of certiorari was also issued by Justice Andrews directing the clerk'of part two of the court of general sessions to'submit to him all the papers in the case. Both writs were served yesterday afternoon. There was- a big crowd in supreme court, chambers, long before Justice Andrews took his seat to hear the case. Langerman came into court in charge of a policemaii from the house of deten- Sion. He did not look so happy as lie did ieveral days ago. He wore a blue overcoat, a dark suit of clothes and patent^ leather shoes. Colonel Haire was present in Lander-man's behalf, and Assistant District Attorney IJnger appeared to object to Lan-german's release from the house of detention. Colonel Haire sought to get Langerman out on the ground that he was being unlawfully held as a witness against Barbara Aub, and that his bail of $1,000 was excessive. On these grounds he asked for Langerman's discharge. . Mr.. Unger recited the facts in connection with Langerman's commitment; He aaid that Langerman was a necessary witness against Barbara Aub, who was held a prisoner in the Tombs on a charge of perjury. Bail, he said, had been fixed at pi, 000, and- having failed to furnish a bondsman Langerman was held a prisoner. " s? 'Commitment Illegal. Colonel Haire, in reply, said that the commitment of Langerman by Recorder Goff was illogal and irregular. He read the law upon the subject, and stated that Langerman could not be committed to the house of' detention unless there was reason, based upon affidavits, to believe that he was an accomplice of Barbara Aub's crime of perjury, and, further unless there was a belief that the witness wanted was about to leave town. The papers in Langerman's case were then produced, showing how^he had been committed, and then Justice Andrews asked whether Recorder Goff had aoted as & police magistrate or as presiding judge Df the court of general sessions. .. Colonel Haire said that it was .unlawful for the recorder to fix Langerman's bail at more than $100. The question was then raised and argued as to whether the recorder in the case had acted as a police magistrate. Justice Andrews was- clearly in accord with Colonel Haire's argument. He asked Mr. Unger what authority the recorder had to hold a witness who was unable to furnish bail. The only precedent quoted Was a murder case tried a long time ago, in which Mr. Unger was interested and in which awitnesewas held in $5; 000 bail. Mr. Unger took the stand that it was not Recorde* GofE who had committed Langerman, but the court of general sos- Bions. Both lawyers then argued on legal technicalities for a long time. • An Important Difference. Justice Andrews said that witnesses were held by federal court judges by a special act of congress, but he did not know of any statute which would give the court of general sessions power to arrest witnesses and lock, them up, as is. in the power of a United States district attorney. Mr. Unger, in answer to the court's contention, said that it was the .custom of the district attorney to arrest witnesses and have their bail fixed in large amounts. ."If there is such a power vested in the district attorney,",,said Justice Andrews, "I d.o;.not know of'it,\but I do not wish to give'a hasty decision in this oase. I ,think it is illegal to'commit witnesses in heavy . bail; If, as-yoii' say, it is the!custom of the district attorney to arrest witnesses and have them committed to thaHouse of Detection, L do not care to give a hasty opinio:) in ' '.:lz >nsc. ZT'-tS I uo hot seo now bow it can be legally done without a special enactment of the legislature. There Is certainly no provision for such action In the code. "I do not wish to interfere with the business of the district attorney's office, Bo I think I shall commit Langerman to the House of Detention in order to give Mr. Unger an opportunity to submit his authorities^in writing." •Mr. Unger then cited the cage of old Bill Vosburg, in which he said that if the come on whom Vosbu rg had swindled Dut of $500 in a green goads game had not been held as a witness iti heavy bail he Would have left the city, and Vosburg would have been set free.

Dun & Co.'a weekly review of tradefsays: ' Business is still sluggish, as if gorged by excessive indulgence of the appetite for buying when prices were advancing. In nearly every branch stocks not y«t distributed to consumers stand ifi the way of new orders, and competition of a producing- force largely exceeding the present demand puts down prices, that decline retarding purchases yet more. After tho holidays men look for a larger demand, whether large enough to support all the producing force awakened to activity by tho abnormal rush of buyers last summer remains to be seen. For the present the springs of new business are running Jow, but enough is doing on old orders to keep most of the works employed itf part and a good proportion fully. Financial influences have not hindered and rarely has the opening of a session of congress affected business so littlo. Reaction in prices is nob' stimulating, eveh when it means return to health after an uiiwholesome advance, but it has been the most prominent feature in business for some weoks. Of" the leading products hides^were almost Jhe first and the most active in rising, but have now receded 40 per cent. Wheat rose about 27 cents with false reports, bub declined about 18 cents. Cotton rose nearly 50 per qpnt, but has receded about 15 per cent, and leather rose as much, but has declined thu3 far 13 per cent. Iron rose nearly 60 per cent, but has declined from the hfghest point about 10 percent.- Woolen gfcods rose scarcely any, and cotton goods much less than cotton, and boots and shoes much less than leather, and these have declined comparatively little. Each branch has special conditions, but where the rise \fas large and due to fictitious or temporary influences much reaction is natural. Retail prices, as .usual* yield more slowly and not in proportion to the wholesale cost of commodities. Wheat, Corn and Cotton. Wheat has advanced about 1- cent for the week, though western receipts have been 7,014,911 bushels against 3,727,788 last year, and Atlantic exports, flour included, again exceed last year's, 2,336,- 093. against 1,887,737 bushels. The.besfc western estimate of the crop have been raised again. Corn -moves from farms less freely than a year ago, the low price hindering, but exports were 1,293,774 bushels, against 178,813' last year. Cotton has beenVeak again, declining a quarter for the week and the January option three-eighths. The quantity which has come into sight, 35 per cent less than last year to date, does not yet indicate a yield 30 or 87 per cent smaller, as many predict, though the recent movement is very slow. Northern spinners have taken about a third less than last year. European manufacture feels shrinkage, in Exports to India and tho oast and the less favorable prospect for goods. In this country the manufacture meota with a much reduced demand, and prices are gradually sinking, in the average for all grades about 2K per cent from tho highest poin£ in October. Wool has been slightly strengthened" by the London sales, bub the average of quotations by Coates Bros, is only a tenth of 1 per cent higher. Sales continue largo, 6,463,100, pounds for tho week, of-which 60. per ce'nb was foreign. Manufacturers have much machinery idle at present, and orders thus far are not encouraging. Dress goods are in less demand, and Atlantic all wool J cashmere's were reduced 10 per cent. Iron-and its products are*lower, anthracites No. 1 at $13, plates at 1.5 and bar at •l.'S cents and bessemer pig $12 at-Valley mills, with billets $16.50. The average of all quotationsjs 8% per cent below the highest point in; September, but actual sales are freq'uenfly>made below quotations. Proposed combination of lake ore producers has not yet been effected, and with tho fall in the price of iron is less p r o b a b l e . _ v . • . • Weak Stock il'jjrJcof. The stock market has? been weak, partly because of sales by London said to reach » 40,000 shares for tho week, and partly because of disappointing returns of earnings. November reports shoV/ed again over last year of 9.8 per cent in the first week, 8.5 in the second, 5.5 in tho third and 1.0 in the fourth week, and for tho month 6.9 over last year, lyit 3.4 per cent, less-than in 1S92. East bound shipments from Chicago in November were 8.4 per "centr larger than in 1892. Payments •through clearing houses are for tho week 8.2 per bent larger than last year, but 12.8 per cent less' than ill 1892, and the comparison, like that of railway earnings, reflects only in part the difference in new business. While a marked change for the better is. exacted after Jan. 1, little-gain can occur for the rest of this year, though in holiday lines larger earnings of the people should cause soma increasa With all the shrinkage in present business and prices, it is encouraging to find but a small increase in failures. Liabilities for four weeks of November Were $12,099,293 against $10,581,873 last year, arrd $20,841,621 in 1893. Manufacturing liabilities were $3,560,681, against $3,- 242J349 last year, but trading liabilities only $6,728,912, agafnsb $7,207,367 last yearr Failures in the United States for the week have been 324 against 385 last year, and 52 in Canada against 40 last year. - - - Sherman For President.
