sii;m:s seldom witnessed.
The Convention Became a HowlInK
iZ M olj When the Committee Re
ported on Resolutions
. When the convent ion was assemb
ing yesterday morning it was
earned that Van Wyck'a name
would not be presented. He would
not consent to it, and the delegation
was not at all anxious to put him
forward. Kansas switched back to
Weaver and Georgia went outhunt-
ng for a candidate, declaring irre
vocably against Gresham.
The claim that there is no north
ind no south in the new party
doesn't apply in the Gresham fight,
and not onlj' have the southern del
egates contended that Gresham can
not carry a southern state, but they
lave threatened freely that they
would not support him themselves.
And even Oregon's delegation has
said with a great show of determi
nation that if Gresham be nomi
nated their people will vote the
prohibition ticket for presidential
Nothing was done -yesterday
morning from 10 to 12 except to
make the the temporary organiza
tion permanent. At the end of
tweney-five minutes, as the noise
was dying slowly away and the
music of the martial band became
audible, one of the standard bear
ers started around the outer aisle,
bearing his banner aloft, and with
one accord the others followed,
while the frenzied bedlam again
broke loose: Twice did the per
spiring enthusiasts make the cir
cuit of the large hall, and everyone
who could secure a banner of any
sort, a cartoon or a llag, joined in
the wild parade. Among those
bearing standards were a number
of women, while no less than
twenty-five of the many women
who have seats in the convention
and take up their half of the time
devoted to discussion, marched,
shouted and . gesticulated with
arms, heads and' bodies as vigor
ously as did any of their masculine
associates. Among them were
Mrs. Leese, Mrs. Kmery, Mrs. Todd
and other leading women in the
people's party movement.
Appeals For Order Ignored.
For a time it looked as if the con
vention was likely to continue its
demonstration indefinitely, in spite
of the appeals of the chair for
order. A number of the cooler
heads gathered around the one
legged presiding oflicerand sought
by every device to catch the atten
tion of the convention, and when
they at last did so the clamorous
carnival of disorder had continued
forty minutes. It was apparently a
ruse of the Greshauiites to work the
convention to a pitch of excitement
bordering on madness, in order to
spring the nomination of their hero
in. the midst of the enthusiasm, for
as soon as order had been restored,
Taubeneck, chairman of the nation
al committee, secured at once the
recognition of the chair to read a
telegram from Houser, candidate
for lieutenant-governor in Indiana.
Gresham Will Not Decline.
"I have just seen Gresham. If
unanimous he will not decline."
Afterwards the convention re
ceived the following from Gresham

The roll of states was then called
for the presentation of candidates
for the presidency and when Ala
bama was called, a delegate arose
and nominated Gen. Weaver, of lo

Senator KyJe, of South Dakota, was
placed in nomination.
A ballot was then taken, which re
suited as follows:

Limestone Caves in I.urmah.
The question has been raised whether
the numerous limestone caves in British
Burmah have been explored for archae
ological remains. The Rev. F. Mason
pointed out the probability of an exam
ination of the stalagmite floors of these
caves yielding important archaeological
discoveries in 1872. Many of the caves
were known to have been used by the
Buddhists of former generations, as
Buddhist idols were found in them, and
it is probable they were inhabited by
men in the early time. Philadelphia
The Pleasures of Ileing a Barber.
Barbering has been a very genteel art,
and it might be fine yet. The fee is so
small there is no excuse for doing a
credit business, and there is no bore of
bookkeeping. The chink drops in fast,
and "Next!" is a merry cry.
And what a luxury it is to have a man
fumble your face and head. The bar
ber's nimble, strong fingers rouses your
somnolent wits. It is delicious to be
kneaded, combed, brushed, bathed, cur
ried, spruced up. National Barber.

His Bottle Proved to Be Loaded.
A young boy named Gilson, in com
pany with one or two other boys, was
on the sewer dock and discovered sev
eral bottles in an old iron tank. In one
of the bottles was a white substance.
Young Gilson's curiosity was aroused.
He produced a match and, lighting it,
dropped it into the bottle. He held the
bottle in his right hand, and no sooner
had the match struck the bottom of the
bottle than an explosion followed, blow
ing the bottle to atoms, filling Gilson's
hand with the fragments of the glass
and also nearly blowing the thumb off
his hand. New Haven Register.
ACTING SAVES LIVES.
COUNSEL FOR MURDERERS EMPLOY
How Lawyers Who Defend Criminals
Strive to Make an Impression on the
Sympathies of Jurymen Some Notable
Cases Where Lawyers Succeeded.
For years it has been generally known
among lawyers that all sorts of desper
ate and theatrical devices are constantly
resorted to in order to save the lives of
accused persons. But Mr. Wellman
was the first prosecutor to make the
charge in open court and quote an in
stance to fortify his allegation.
Is the practice right or wrong?
Perhaps the most moving part of
Lawyer William F. Howe's elegant sum
ming up on behalf of Annie Walden
was where he besought the jurymen to
consider her youth, her beauty and her
When Francis L. Wellman, assistant
district attorney, began his summing up
for the prosecution, he urged the jurors
not to be moved by his adversary's
emotional appeals. He called Mr. Howe
an actor. He said:
"If you had seen him, as I have, go
behind a woman defendant and pinch
her to make her scream and so arouse
sympathy, you would not be so much in
fluenced by his theatrical display."
"Whom did Mr. Howe pinch?" I asked
"Ella Nelson," was his prompt reply.
"You recall that she had shot her lover
dead because he was packing his trunk
and preparing to leave her. She was on
trial for her life. Mr. Howe got her ac
quitted. "When he had got to that part of his
summing up where he called upon the
jury to 'look at her,' Ella was sitting be
hind a table, her face toward the jury,
but resting in her hands. She had been
weeping for some minutes, but now she
" 'Look at that face!' pleaded Mr.
Howe in impassioned tones. He strode
rapidly behind her. Again he cried,
'Look at that face!' and as he did so he
seized Ella's soft wrists in his strong
hand and wrenched her arms apart.
The woman screamed with pain and
"That scream was enough to freeze
the blood of anybody who heard it. I
cannot help thinking that it had much
to do with the verdict.
"I do not say that it is wrong for
counsel to employ theatrical methods in
defending their clients. I think it is
part of the duty of the prosecuting officer
to expose this sort of thing to the jury.
"Frederick B. House was defending a
man named Becker in the general ses
sions. Becker had a clothing store in
Baxter street. He arranged a candle so
that when it burned down to a certain
point at midnight it would set fire to a
lot of bagging soaked with kerosene,
and so bum the store and earn Becker a
big amount of insurance. Firemen
quenched the flames and so saved the
lives of seventy-six men, women and
children who were sleeping in the tene
ments above the store.
"When Mr. House summed up he
was in a quandary. Becker couldn't
understand one word in English, there
fore how could the poor devil weep at
the proper moment? " That little diffi
culty was solved all right. Becker rested
his face in his hands and peeped through
his interlaced fingers at his eloquent de
fender. " 'Think, gentleman,' said Mr. House,
'if you send this wretched man to prison
you will punish those innocent little
ones.' At that instant Mr. House drop
ped his handkerchief.
" 'Wow!' came a shriek from Becker.
It began like the scream of a catamount.
It died away in a long drawn wail and
choking sobs. Becker's tears were like
a shower. Mrs. Becker's and the little
Beckers' tears were a cloudburst. Human
nature couldn't stand it. Juror No. 8
was a nice old fellow, retired from busi
ness and living at home surrounded by
sons and daughters and chubby grand
children. He broke down at the second
drop of Fred House's handkerchief. At
the third drop of the cambric the juror's
tears gushed out beyond the railing.
Answering sniffles and gasps came from
two other jurors.
"It seems hard to believe, but it is a
matter of record that in the face of the
clear evidence against Becker the jury
stood three for acquittal and nine for
conviction. The tears and howls and
the ittle Beckers saved the guilty man.
And in proof of his guilt let me add that
Becker was released under $2,500 bail,
but he ran away, although the case was
soon brought up for retrial.
"Often the question of makeup tests
the counsel stage manager's ability and
ingenuity. There was Alphonse Steph
ani, the young man who deliberately
murdered Lawyer Clinton G. Reynolds
for not surrendering Stephani's father's
estate fast enough to be squandered. The
defense was insanity.
"Perhaps you recall the Stephani who
came to trial. Instead of the handsome,
neatly dressed rich man's son, the jury
saw a wild, unkempt creature, a Caliban
in ugliness. Stephani's hair had been
untouched by shears or brush for months.
He had not bathed or shaved. He 6till
wore the clothes he had on when ar
rested. His linen was in tatters and
almost black. His outer garments were
greasy and crusted with accumulations
of spilled food. Stephani was a good
actor. Not a word did he speak to any
one. With large black eyes, as deep
and mournful as Edwin Booth's, he
