ON TRIAL FOR LIFE
Case Against Mrs. Harry Samp
son Is Galled,
1JB6FIM IS ADMIRAL'S HEPHEW.
Widow Must Face Jury In Lyons, N.
Y., on Charge of Shooting Husband
After Quarrel She Declares He
"With tho execution ot Mrs. Mary
Fnrmor Inst week fresh In the mind of
every one, the case of Mrs. Georgia
IS. Sampson, accused of shooting to
death her husband, Harry Sampson,
on Nov. 1, 1008, was called for trial
at Lyons, N. Y., Monday.
It Is expected that the procuring of
a Jury to lienr the evidence fqr and
against tho young woman will con
sume much time. Almost every one In
Wayne, county Is acquainted with ei
ther tho Sampson family or with tho
Allyn family, to which Mrs. Sampson
belongs hy birth. The prominenco of
the two families Harry Sampson's un
cle was the late Hear Admiral William
T. Sampson, who commanded the fleet
at Santiago, while tho Allyns nr'o
among the wealthy folks of this part
of the Etate has made tho alleged
murder the principal topic of conver
sation around the hearths of tho coun
ty all through the winter, It will be
difficult to find twelve men willing to
wear that they have formed no opin
ion as to the guilt or Innocence of the
accused woman. District Attorney
Gilbert Is Mrs. Sampson's cousin.
Intense Interest in the case extends
teyond the limits of the county. The
papers of Rochester, which lies in
Monroe, the next county to the west,
fcavo made special arrangements to
cover the trial. The courtroom con
tains a large number of press ropre-
Mnt'atlveB from Rochester, Buffalo and
In the courtroom today Mrs. Samp
son preserved the somo nonchalant de
meanor that has marked her since her
arrest, She has declared that her law
yers will prove that Harry Sampson
committed suicide after a quarrel with
her, despite the damaging testimony
that will be adduced against her. Jus
tice Adelbert P. Rich of Auburn pre
sides nt the trial.
The shooting ot Harry Sampson oc
curred at Macedon, a vlllago ubout
eighteen miles west of here. He was
twenty-seven years old and had been
arrled to Georgia Allyn six years.
She Is now only twenty-three. The
young couple lived' In a house occu
pied partly by the family of the wife's
parents. Probably it would be more
correct to say that the Sampsons lived
with the Allyns. The shooting took
place in the Allyns' dining room, and
the youug man died in a living room
used by the two families.
Held Food In Hand as He Died.
The young couple were happy for
several years after their marriage.
Then, according to the stories told
agalnBt the wife, she commenced to
pay mysterious visits to Rochester ana'
was seen In the gay resorts of that
place. The fatal quarrel with her hus
band followed tho receipt by him of
a letter addressed to "Miss Allyn."
She declares thnt he killed himself In
a fit of Jealousy, but her lawyers will
have to explain away several strange
circumstances. Mrs. Allyn, Georgia's
mother, will testify that when her son-in-law
fell nt her feet, with blood flow
ing from n mortal wound In the brcabt
inflicted by his own rifle, his right
hand held a bit of bread and cheese.
After the shooting the rifle was found
standing In a corner of the room which
saw the tragedy, and medical men will
declare on the witness stand that the
bullet which kllleld young Sampson
ranged downward, as though flred
from the stairs down which his wife
ran after the report was heard. There
was no powder marks on his clothing.
Georgia Sampson was Indicted on
Feb. 8, the grand Jury cnarglng her
with murder in the first degree. On
the following day George Sampson,
father of the man whom sue Is ac
caused of killing dlea suddenly of
Drlght's disease. It Is asserted that
grief over the shooting hastened his

VOTE ONAPRIL 9
Rules Report Adopted With
Sixteen to Spare.
PARTY LINES AGAIN BROKEN
Resolution Provides for Separate Ac
tion on Lumber and Hide Schedules.
Florida Democrat Defies His Col
leagues and Denounces Bryan.
April 9 was the time set by the
house for a vote on the Payne tariff
bill. The long expected tesolutlon ot
the committee on rules closing general
debate, providing for certain commit
tee amendments and a full and free
opportunity to alter the lumber and
hides schedules, was reported nnd
adopted with sixteen votes to sparo
notwithstanding the desertion of twenty-two
Republicans. Four of the six
teen votes came from the Louisiana
delegntlon, who likewise broke away
from their party. Those who broke
away from party lines were;
Republicans: Austin (Tenn.), Ter
ry, Cooper Lenrott, Morse und Nelson
(Wis.), Dawson, Good, Haugeu, Pick
ett, Woods, Hubbard and Kendall
(la.), Hinshaw and Norrls (Neb.),
IJndberg (Minn.), Murdock (Kau.),
Parson (N. Y.), Polndexter (WaiSh.)
and Young (Mich.).
Democrats: Broussard, Estoplnal,
Pujo nnd Wickliffo (La.).
Previous to the adoption ot the
resolution there was some severe crit
icism of It from the Democratic side.
Aside from the Interest which, at
tached to this proceeding was 'the
speech of Clark (Fla.), who denounced
Bryan and Bryanlsm, Populists and
Populism and who declared that he
would support the Payne bill if It con
tained what his constituents wanted
a duty on sea Island cotton and 'pro
tection for citrus fruits, pineapples
etc. His remarks got him into an ex
citing colloquy with Randell (Tex.)
anil other Democrats, but he declnred
that having been instructed by the
legislature ot his state and his con
stituents as to th,e stand he should
take on the articles mentioned, he
would not violate his solemn obliga
tion to them. His whole attitude was
one of defiance to the Democrats of
the house. Before the rule was report
ed there were numerous speeches on
the bill, those occupying the floor be
ing Bartlett (Ga.), Calderhead (Kan,),
Burgess (Tex.), Stanley (Ky.), Hob-
son (Ala.), GUlisple (Tex.), Thistle
wood (111-), Saunders (Va.), Reeder
(Kan.) and Madden (111.).
An Interested spectator throughout
almost the entire session was Mrs.
Tatt, who was accompanied by her
two sons, and Captain Archibald Butt,
U. S, A., one of the president's aides.

Tragedy Near at Tabriz.
A dispatch from Tehornn, describ
ing the situation at Tabriz, says there
is not a bit of doubt that a tragedy Is
close at hand. If Tabriz holds out
against tho invaders, the dispatch
says, thousands must die of starva
tion. If Tabriz falls, probably 10,000
will be massacred. The rest or the

TRIES TO KILL SLAYER TAYLOR
Father of Victim Attempts to Avenge
Death of Daughter.
Mlnden, Neb., April 5. Bert Taylor,
alleged murderer of Pearl Taylor, his
filster-ln-law, narrowly escaped death
at tho hands of the father of the girl
as ho was about to board a train for
Lincoln, where he Is being held for
safekeeping. Douglas Taylor, father
of tho murdered girl, pulled a revolver
and aimed It at Bert Taylor, but was
overpowered before he could shoot,
Tho incident took plnce In tho pres
ence of a large crowd and has created
considerable excitement. Taylor had
been brought here for arraignment
and was n the custody of Shelff Ran
som and a deputy. He was about to
board the car when Douglas Taylor
drew the revolver and leveled It nt
the prisoner. Johnson Slack, who
stood near him, grabbed the gun and
forced his hand down toward the
ground. After a struggle Taylor was
overpowered and the gun taken from
him without being flred. During ihe
struggle the old man shouted, "Let me
get at him. Don't keep me away."
After the train had gone Douglna
Taylor and the father of Sheriff Ran
som had a scene, but no trouble re
sulted. Douglas Taylor Is the fatner-In-law
of Bert Taylor.

mob violence is considered remote.
