The prosecution in the murder trla' '

Mrs. Glover "hnd the motive , the in

THE TIME PLAYING
CONFERENCE ENDS WITH SERIOUS -
OUS WORK UNDONE TOO
Louisville , Ky. , Dec. 1. Unless
plans nre suddenly chnnged late to
day some of the governors attending
the third annual conference hero will
leave with carefully prepared dis
courses on Intricate subjects tucked
away for future reference. The social
feature of the conference has been
paramount nnd has taken so much
time that little business has been
trancacted. The conference may adjourn -
At the session this morning general
discussion of Governor Hndley's ad
dress of yesterday was taken up. He
spoke on "Employers' Liability nnd
Workmen's Compensation. " Various
idens were given , but each was to the
effect that more laws on these sub
jects were inadequate and thnt the
stntes should carefully revise them.
The appalling death rate of railways
of the country were compared with the
lower rate in European countries , in
discussing the vast defect In laws of
foreign nations nnd ours regarding the
liability of employers.
Though not a member of the confer
ence , one of the Interesting figures nt
this meeting is G. Bradford of Boston ,
who was accorded the honor of ad
dressing the body , even though it was
pressed for time. Naturally the gov-
ornois liked his ( speech advocating
more power for the chief executives
and cr bing of legislatures. He bears
a remnrkablo resemblance to Spenkor
Cnnnon nnd came from Boston on his
own Inltlntlvo to preach n doctrine
which he thinks will materially aid
the states and crystallize the move

ernors th ; t will bring benefits to the

activities that the \Lltois have par
taken of heie. The theory la advanced
thnt mere icrl woik will bo done at
Spung Luke N. J. , than can be done
at any state capital where the resi
dents naturally would want to shower
entertainment upon such a disting
uished assemblage. Other stntes
wanted the next conference , but two
talking for New Jersey , and the added
Inducements of Spring Lake over a
capital won and Woodrow Wilson was
made the host.
