that experience ahowed these' schools, dis
tant from the Indian reservatlona, bad done
more harm than good. The policy was a
mistaken one, In his opinion. . These In

outgrowth of aa-Ignorant aentlment. The
Indians should be taught husbandry at

protect him, and that If evidence were
produced to Juittry 'the Charges the com
missioner of Indlad affairs would1 dismiss
him Instantly. He proposed that Mr. Fits

They pointed out that, a decision In a
case from the supremo court of the United
8tates Is expected oa Monday next They
were unable to understand why notice ot
another action should bo glvea pending
this decision. ., ,
It Is stated to bo the intention of both
tho Hill-Morgan d1 JCuhn, Loeb A ' Co.
and Harrlman syndicates to fight the case
out to the end. All the bankers seen ax
pressed themselves at confident ot tho ulti

what the decision may be; the prominent
idea that brought tho. 'company Into ex
istence will , bo maintained. Such con

foreseen by legal . talent when the last
details were arranged some months ago
and provision ta made for tho carrying out

CREATES DRAMATIC SCENE IN COURT ROOM
Witness Deliberately Relates Details
of' the Plan aad Eseeatlon of
Crime Mays Chloroform
NEW YORK, Feb. 20. A very dramatlo
point in the trial of Lawyer Albert T. Pat
rick, for the murder ot the Texas mil
lionaire. William Marsh Rice, waa reached
this afternoon. Charles F. Jones, the valet,
had been relating the circumstances leading
up to tho somewhat sudden death of Rice
Then, plunging at once Into details, he
held the attention ot bis audience to the
end of hla recital. Freed of minor points,
his story was:
In August, Patrick grew Impatient. Mr.
Rice, though an Invalid, waa living too long
to suit the lawyer's purpose. Patrick said
he would come to tbe bouse and kill htm
himself if necessary. He suggested chloro
form and Jones said hs would get some.
The Idea of chloroform as a means was
suggested by a magazine article. It waa
determined on after Jones talked with a
physician, who aald a person whose heart
was affected, aa was Mr. Rice's, could be
most easily killed with It, and that little
trace of tha drug would be left.
Jones Bays the Drag,
' Jones got a two-ounce vial of it by writ
ing to his brother In Texas. Jones thea
branched off into the' alleged plan to
weaken the already sick oluj man. This
was by giving him mercury and iron pills.
The pills brought on debilitating diarrhoea.
Then they unwittingly had h friend take
Mr. Rice a present of bananas. Of these
tho eld man ato nine. The fruit made him
exceedingly 111 and yet the weakening doaes
of mercury were kept up. By Saturday,
being about the eighth day. of the last Ill
ness, Mr. Rice- became delirious.
This testimony brought . the events up
to Sunday, the day of death, and the wit
ness bad said, that during these ten days
of Illness he bad kept Patrick, Informed ot
tho details personally and by' telephone.
William Marsh Rice's quick death, de
clared tho witness, was decided on at a
conference between Patrick and Jones held
Saturday. Jones had told the lawyer ot the
arlval of a draft of 125,000. Patrick told
him It was time to apply the chlorofofm
now that the draft had come and Captain
Baker was coming, or they, would lose all.
' Jones here told his story of the actual
killing. He made a cone of a towel in
the' small end of which was a chloroform-
soaked sponge. Creeping into the room
where Mr, Rice lay sleeping, he quickly
covered the sleeper's face with the large
end ot tbe cone. Jones rushed out of the
room. In half an hour be came back. He
removed the cone. Mr. Rice was - deed.
Jonea swore he telephoned to Patrick the
words: "Mr. Rice is very ill," the agreed
signal between the two of death.
Jones' atory of the end was concluded by
the statement that Patrick came to the
house and removed all ot Mr. Rlce'a
