In view of the imminent danger
which threatens all industries of our
Nation, and especially the production
and manufacture of wool, the wool
growers of Ohio urge the necessity of

growers of Ohio advocate a protective

secure protection. The result of the last

ic expression by alargemajarityof the
people in favor of a comprehensive sys
tem embracing all our industries, in
cluding the protect ion of wool byname.
If the Republican party in its legisla

or of inability to perform its duty.

time to look into. Of course it will be
evidence in chief, probably. Not hav
ing come to our knowledge until this
morning, we feel like asking the court
to let us introduce the evidence at this
After some objection by Mr. Forrest
the court called the State's Attorney
into a private consultation, at the close
of which Judge McConnell said:
"I take it that the evidence which
the State's Attorney has ought to go
j in the case. I have decided to allow it
to go in. It will not delay the opening
of the case to the jury. If I allow it to
go in I do not see that it ought to in
terfere with the opening of the address
to the jury, and if you, Mr. Forrest, de
sire time to answer it. I will give you
the time. It is a matter which can be
disposed of at any time.''
Police Officer Flyim was then called
to the stand, and in response to ques
tions testified as follows:
"When Daniel Coughlin was arrested
I was ordered by the lieutenant, Elli
ott, to take him to the Harrison street
.station, which I did. When we got
there I searched him in Captain Bar

I have in my hand I found in his pos
session. I took the knives and a re
volver from Coughlin, took them back
to headquarters, went upstairs to El
liott's office, and then took them down
to my box in headquarters and locked
them up. They were there until the
16th or loth September, when I
took them to the Fidelity vault, where
they have since remained. Last night I
called the attention of Captain Schuet
tler to them at East avenue station. I
did not disclose the fact that I had

This closed the direct examination,
and Mr. Forrest moved to exclude the

T. T. Conklin, the man with whom
Dr. Cronin lived, was then called to
the stand. He identified the knives as
having been carried by Dr. Cronin
when alive. The smaller one the wit-
i ness had himself carried for two years,
and he then gave it to Dr. Cronin.
The larger one, the witness said, he
had found in the street. If they were
not Dr. Cronin's knives they looked
t exactly like them. Dr. Cronin carried
the smaller knife in his vest pocket.
This ended the evidence and State's

The Topeka Meat laapectlon Ordlaaace

I Topeka, Kan., Nov. 30. Judge
j Brewer yesterday decided that the To

The decision was given in a test case
brought by Swift & Co., the Kansas
City packers, whose agent was arrested,
fined $100 and sentenced to imprison
ment for thirty days, for selling a car
load of dressed beef to Topeka markets
in violation of the inspection ordi
nance. Judge Brewer delivered his opinion
orally, saying that while the ordinance
on the. face of it declared it was en
acted for the purpose of providing pure
meat for the citizens of Topeka, it was
in reality made for no other purpose
than to prohibit the sale of Kansas
City dressed meat here. This, he said,
was clearly in violation of the commerce
clause of the Constitution of the United
While he conceded the right of a city
to prevent the sale of impure meat to
citizens, it could not blockade com
merce by requiring that all the meat
sold to its citizens must be slaughtered
within one mile of its city limits, as
this ordinance provides. The city could
prosecute the Kansas City packers if
impure meat was sold, and it might re
quire that all their meat be inspected
before entering the city, but it could
not refuse, as it had done in this case,
to allow the meat to be inspected and
thus bar it from the markets. v
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 30. Judge
Brewer yesterday gave in his decision
on the question as to whether the Texas
United States Court had jurisdiction
over Xo-Man's-Land. He decides that
the court in Texas has full jurisdiction
in that land and that it has pewecto
try all murder cases from that section.
The arrest of the Stevens County
murderers was not resisted, the fight
between them and the law being a tech
nical case, involving the jurisdiction of
any court to try them. They will make
this same fight over in Paris, Tex.,
which will probably sustain Judge
