Dr. Mnckny Is Star Witness.
Fremont , Nov. HO. "I would Bay
that the man IB subject 10 periodical
Insanity and that on the thirteenth
day of August he was Insane. " i
This answer by Dr. .1. II. Mackay of
Norfolk , insanity expert , to the hypo
thetical question propounded by coun
sel for the defense In district court
yesterday afternoon marked the ell
max In the fight to save George W.
Osborne , the Hlalr painter , from death
on the gallows or life Imprisonment.
In calling Dr. Mackay to the witness
iitand the attorneys for the defense
played their trump card and It Is generally - j
orally conceded that Dr. Mackay's tes
timony will play an Important part In
determining the dual verdict. ; '
In laying the foundation for Dr.
Mackay's testimony as to the mental
and physical condition of the defend
ant , Oshorne's attorneys brought out
the fact that Dr. Mackay had made a
HOBO study of Insanity In Its variom
forms since 1804 , and at one time wan

was Insane on the night of the crime.
Tells of Osborne's Condition.
Dr. Mackay's story of the examina
tion of Osborne was the most inter
esting testimony of the entire case.
IIo told of blindfolding the prisoner
and piercing his foot with a pin. Os
borne , ho declared , sensed the pain ,
but was unable to pull his foot away
from the pin point , which showed that
his nervous system was In disorder.
A test of the eyes showed that the
pupils failed to react. Other tests
showed Osborne's mind to be unusual-I
ly slow in grasping ideas. The prisoner -
oner , he said , was unable to stand In
the attitude of a soldier without sway
ing. Ills power of equilibrium was
"Tho prisoner's frame Is that of a
type never found in the Caucasian
race among sane men , " declared Dr.
Mackay. "It is such a frame as that
common to idiots and resembling that
of the ape. "

and advanced methods. And suppose s
it should allow the legislature to fix
reasonable salaries for officials with
in certain limitations and do a lot of t
other things which would bo for the )
general good , what do you suppose )
the people would do with It ? The ac
tion at the late election In falling to

does not glvo much hope that they
would show greater wisdom In the
matter of a complete constitution.

Sioux Falls Argus-Leader : Wo BUS-
icct that the referendum will play an
ncreaslng part in South Dakota mat
ers from this time on. The over-
vhelmlng defeat of every submission
except one , has taught the people
mw easy It is to veto the acts of the
eglslature , and it Is likely that any
neasuro which excites the least or
ganized opposition will first have to
run the referendum gauntlet before
t can become a law. We agree with
.ho Mitchell Republican that the con
stitution should be changed , raising
he percentage required to Invoke the
referendum , but we fear that in an
other "vote no" campaign it would go
lown with the rest. It is a big job to
educate 125,000 voters so that they
will caiefully pick out of a long list
of laws what they favor and vote for
them , when they are opposed to the
reat majority of things submitted.
It is llatterlng to the voter to say that
he will do It , but some way the actual
returns do not vindicate the flattering

THOMAS WILL TRY AGAIN.
California middleweight Is After Stan

Now York , Nov. 30. Joe Thomas ,
the California middleweight who , up
to the time he met Stanley Ketchol ,
was looked upon ns the best oxpon-
j out of the manly art In his class , has
i a lingering suspicion that ho will yet

For a time , after his several defeats
by Ketchel , Thomas went all to pieces ,
IIo dropped so far back In his lighting
that It was n hard matter for him to
induce boxing promoters to give him n i
match. Lately , however , ho has been i

Is the Lamp of Real Beauty
because it gives the best light of all
lamps. The Rayo gives a wufte , soft ,
mellow diffused light easy on the
eye because it cannot flicker. You
can use your eyes as long as you wish
under the Rayo light without strain.
The Rayo Lamp is low-priced , and
even though you pay $5 , $10 or $20 for
other lamps , you may get more expensive
decorathns but you cannot get a better
light than the low-priced Rayo gives. A
strong , durable shade-holder holds the
shade on firm and true. This season's
new burner adds strength.and appearance.

only a question of a short while until
he is hack in his old form. Tonight
at the Marathon Athletic club In
Brooklyn ho will moot Connie Schmidt
of Hobokcn , In the main event. While
It is not often that you find a man by
the name of Schmidt who can fight ,
this one is said to be the real artlclo.
Experts on the game think well
enough of the Hoboken man to credit
him with possessing championship
quality. Thomas did not pick a soft
one when he agreed to meet Schmidt ,
that's certain. Thomas states that ho
Is anxious to find out whether It will
pay him to continue In the game , and
in order to convince himself of the
fact , decided to have a try-out with
the Jersey man. Those who have
seen Schmidt in action predict that
the California ! ) will have to step some
i ins young iciiow , i ew rowcll , who
fought young Otto at the Olympic Ath
letic club last Monday night , display
ed a fine brand of gameness. Otto ,
according to those who saw the bout ,
fought the best battle of his career.
He outboxed Powell in the early
rounds and punished him severely and
against a man less determined than
the California ) ! would perhaps have
won by a knockout. Hut Powell did
not appear to care much for the
punching he was getting , for he kept
continually boring in and slamming
away in such vigorous fashion that
it took a good deal of the heart out of
the local man. The tide of battle
turned in the California ) ! s favor as
soon as he brought the blood from Ot
to's nose , which was in the eighth
round. From then on to the finish he
gave Otto a severe beating.
Dan McKettrick , who lias assumed
the management of young Otto , has
it given out that from now on there'll
be no evidence of the canary in his
man when he fights. "Otto Is the best
2-handed lightweight I've seen in the
east , " said McKettrlek , "and if I can
get him to stand ground and light as
he can , he'll clean up this bunch of
of eastern lightweights like breaking
sticks. And you take It from me , "
continued the little manager , "I'll soon
liavo him to a stage where he'll not
know the meaning of the word 'quit. ' "
May be so , Dan , may be so. But
then we shall see.

Frank Mantell and "Sailor" nurke for
the star bout next Friday night. This
contest will be at the middleweight
