ed. He entered a protest against this
one man power way of selecting com

der as to the right to introduce bills
through petitions. A warm discus
sion * ensued , sharply participated in
by Messrs. McLano , llobeson , Kelly ,
Randall , Singleton , Kasson , Cobb and
Haskell. The discussion closed by
the chair stating the only method to
get a bill before the house was to pre
sent it only.
Before adjourning the speaker
stated tliat he had no reply to made
to Mr. Orth's charges , but that it must
not bo inferred because the chair did
not challenge any of the statements
charging him with injustice , that he
acquiesced in the views of Mr. Orth.
The house then at 1:10 : p. in. ad
journed till Monday.

intention that the board of trade
should invest $ f > 0,000 or § 100,000 in

them before next week. I do not
think that Judge Cox , or nny ether

think there is anything in the case for

Mr. Davidgosaid :
"It is n complete break down on the
part of the defence. Did you over
see suck a weak defense and such a
strong case for the prosecution in any
criminal case ? It is marvelous. Wo
have been greeted with surprises al
most every day throughout the trial.
We were informed in mysterious an
nouncements through the press before
the trial of the wonderful strength of
the dufonso. We have seen day by
day nothing save the unfolding of its
wonderful weakness. It is at an end
now , and there will bo nothing more
worth talking about. We shall have
the speeches ( presumably ono from
the assassin , since ho wants to speak
and his friends do not deny him any *
thing he wants ) , the Charge and the
verdict-are following clbsoly upon the
heels of the other. I think the ques
tion of jurisdiction will bo raised , but
there is nothing in that. I have ex
amined it very carefully , and that is
my deliberate judgment. It was
founded on a very narrow tie , and not
well founded on that. I find as I
grow older that the tendency of iho
law is to narrow rather than enlarge a
man. Ho bocamos in many cases a

the murdered woman , a Pioneer re
porter gathered tjio follow ing facts in
regard to the statement of the dread
ful all'air as made by the murderer :
"On Sunday I wont to Dig Shoun's
and got two bottles of whisky nnd
some canned goods. I went homo
and gave it to thn old woman at the
door , and then I went mid put out
the pony. I went to the house and
stayed around awhile , and then 1
went out to look after some cattle ,
nnd when I came back the old woman
was dead. "
Tlnso to whom ho told the story ,
said , "That's too thin. " Ho then
gave another version. Ho sr.id , "I
got home , and pretty soon I wont to
bed and wont to sleep , and after a
while I waked up and I said , 'Mary
Ann , why don't you como to bed'1
She didn t answer , and I got up and
tried to lift her on the bed , but she
was too heavy , and then 1 found out
that she was dead. "
Since making the two contradictory
statements , the prisoner tins preserved
a silence , and says nothing whatever
