NEW YORK, Oct. 30. Counsel for the de
fense In the Mollneux case moved today
that the court direct the jury to acquit the
defendant on the ground that the evldeneo
was insufficient. Justice-Lambert denied
the motion.
Former Oovernor Black, la moving Mo
lineux'i acquittal, said the evidence given
was not sufficient to warrant a conviction;
that there was no evidence that the defend
ant had ever had In his possession cyanide
of mercury, or the bottle bolder in which
the poison was sent; that he did not mall
the poison package and that there was no
proof whatever connecting the defendant
with the crime charged.
At the close of Governor Black's argu
ment Justice Lambert said:
"I will deny the motion for the present
and will bear all tbe evidence.",
Mr. Black then asked the court to permit
him to make his opening address, to the
jury tomorrow and Justice Lambert ao
qulesced, declaring court adjourned until
tomorrow. Mr. Black said his opening ad
dress would be very short. After the ad
journment Mr. Black was asked if Mollneux
will take the stand In his own behalf.
"There Is a a Irons likelihood that ire
shall call Mr. Mollneux," he. said, "but
nothing has been decided."

Miners quickly placed the car on the track
again, however, and started them oft with
a hearty good bye.
The party reached the surface St 2:10,
after being under ground for two hours and

made of the outside buildings and then
the commissioners were driven to their
In the afternoon they had an Interesting
time at the coal breaker at Carbondale.
They went to tbe top of the great, black
building and Inspected all the machinery
down to the ground. They were much In
terested in the men and boys who are em
ployed In picking slate and "boney" from
the coal. From the breaker they were
escorted to the chute where the coal, fresh
out of the mine, is sent to the breaker by
means of a "coneyor," an endless chain
arrangement of scuppers.
Disease Slse , of Tea. - "
It Is here one of the principal bones of
contention between the employes and em
ployers is found. Tbe miners maintain they
are. often unjustly docked for the amount
of slate, boney or other refuse found In
the coal. The commissioners watched the
work of the boss closely and aaw him dock
several miners, because, in his judgment,
there was too much foreign matter In the
car of eosl.
A few feet swsy is the place where the
coal Is weighed.
After the seven arbitrators had watched
the weighing Mr. Clark inquired hbw many
pounds constituted a ton at this- colliery,
Mr. Bryden of the Ontario )ft.;. Western
thought It was about 3,800 pounds, but! Mr,
Nicholls said it was a little over S.106
pounds. The two began a discussion", each
maintaining he was right: Mr. Nicholls
said that, granting 1800 was correct. It
was too high. He Bald when 2,800 pounds
was fixed to constitute a ton, so as lo get
1,000 pounds of pure coal, the operators did
not sell pea eosl. Now they had a market
for pea coal and three sizes below it, but
the miners' ton of 1,800 pounds has not
been decreased. '
Judge Orsy wss sn Interested listener to
the discussion. He stood with his bands In
his overcoat pockets and never uttered a
word. It was quite evident that both Mr.
Nicholls and Mr. Bryden tried to make a
good Impression upon him, but what he
thought he did not even express in his
actions. 1
While the discussion was on the colliery
whistle Jalew and the judge broke in, "Well,
gentlemen, tt is 6 o'clock and I guess we'll
have to stop work."
Tomorrow the commissioners will Inspect
tbe Manvlllo colliery at Green Ridge, just
outside of the city. It Is operated by the
Delaware aV Hudson and Delaware, Lacka
wanna aV Western companies.
The colliery inspected today was selected
by the operators, and la said to ba one of
the best in the upper regions. The Man-
vllle Is one of the worst and waa selected
by the miners.

the Sliver Brook operation of J. 8. Wenti

gher of the Vnited Mine Workers upon In
structlons from President Mitchell.
Tbe strikers at those mines were' not

Coxes insisting that their employes make
personal application far their former posi
tions, and a. B. Markle at Co. requiring
that each man, before going back to work.
promise to abide by the decision Of the
arbitration commission.
The Mine Workers allege that the object
of these requirements is discrimination
against men who were prominent In the
A. Pardee at Co.'s collieries, where the
men have been asked not to Interfere with
nonunion hands, are not Included in the
strike order. The men voted on Saturday
not to resume work until the agreement is
The trouble at Silver Brook Is similar to
that at tbe Coxe mines.
Tbe following notices were posted by
Coxe Bros, at Co. at their collieries today:
Any man who by intimidation (moral per
suanloni attempts to Induce a company em
ploye to It-Kve or Join a soclfty, or any
boay who objects to work with sny other
employe because he haa, or doea not, belong
to a soclfty, will be discharged.
EDUAH KL'DLICK, Mining Engineer.
Another notice posted Is headed, "Scope
of the Board of Arbitration In Connection
with tbs Strike of 1902." and is a copy of
that portion of the fifth paragraph of tti
coal president's arbitration proposal which
refers to the noninterference of former
strikers with nonunion men.
Tbe only change In the wording Is that
"own" haa been inserted after "their,"
making the sentence read "Their own em
ployes," which In Its original read, "Their
employes." This notice Is not signed or
dated. , ,

Root Saya Army Mast Kaaptey Crosier
Invention for Slx-laeh
WASHINGTON, Oct. 30. Bllhu Root hits
approved a recommendation that the disap
pearing gun carriage be used In connection
tth guns of six-inch caliber as well as
with those of . larger bore. The carriage to
be used U largely the deslgtr of General
Crosier, the present head of the ordnance
bureau. Its adoption was fought by Gen
eral Miles, ss head of the board of ordnance
and fortification. . .
Cobgress at Its last session appointed a
board to examine .the rival claims, which
has now recommended the carriage for guna
exceeding six Inches In catlber, but sug
gested that their use for smaller guns be
suspended. This suggestion has recently
been again under consideration by tho
board of ordnance and fortification, and the
board has agreed that the line should be
drswn below the six-Inch gun rslher than
above. In reaching this conclusion t8o
board considered the effectiveness of the
six-Inch gun ta fortification defense and
decided that modern invention has advanced
ths Six-Inch gud to the point of a primary
gun, not leaving It a weapon of secondary
importance .

Great Work.
Although the chapel room of the new
Omaha Presbyterian Theological seminary
dat Twenty-first and Emmet streets has
been msde amply large tor all ordinary
purposes for years to come, it was over
taxed on the first night it wss called into
use and one-half of the people who attended
the opening of tbs institution last evening
were forced to stand in the apaclous hall
ways, where only the applause that inter
rupted the speakers reached tbolr ears.
Those who found themselves within hear
ing distance listened to a service of praise
and thanksgiving. President M. B. Lowry
of the Theological seminary was the first
speaker snd before Introducing Dr. William
L. McBwan, the speaker of the evening, he
recited a short history of the institution
and cited the wonderful growth it has ex
perienced in tho eleven yesrs of tts ex
istence. For Its age the Omaha seminary
leads any Presbyterian school in the coun
try and can boast of one of the best fin
ished and most beautiful of buildings. Pres
ident Lowry passed from the present to the
future and painted the atructures which '
some day would frame the six seres of i
ground into a quadrangle. I
The present building is 154x48, with three 1
stories and a basement. On tbe first floor
are located tbe public rooms, the recita
tion rooms, library, offices and chapel. The
second and third floors sre devoted to the
use of the students, with sccomodatlons for
Dr. Lowry paid strong tributes to those
instrumental in tbe building of the new
college. Chief among these he mentioned
Mrs. William Thsw of Pittsburg, the chief
contributor, to whom not only the present
prosperity of the Institution Is due, but
even Its very existence. Special mention
waa alao madi by the president to John C.
Wharton, whose work of raising funds did
much toward making the new building pos
sible. Balldlnsr for the Fstarr,
Dr. William L. McEwan of Pittsburg
brought out forcibly the present and fu
ture values of the Omaha Theological Semi
nary. He called to mind that while Omaha
was not noted abroad for its Industrial and
commercial greatness, the city's lasting
fame would depend on such Institutions as
the Omaha Presbyterian Theological semi
nary. In proof of this he pointed out that
while the preachings of Christ and the
religious literature of the old world still
sbldcd and would abide the rest of all that
those people had worked for and achieved
had crumbled into the dust. The theologi
cal seminary, said the speaker. Is the best
expression of the highest ideals of a com
munity. And to him the Presbyterian doc
trines meant the simplest snd most definite
system of religion, and a seminary planted
here in the gateway of the west, destined,
he believed, for the greatest future of sny
section of the country, would become one
of tbe world's greatest powers for good.
A prayer was offered by A. B. Marshall,
D. D., of Des Moines, president of the
Bosrd of Directors of the Omaha Theologi
cal seminary, and the benediction was pro
nounced by President 8. B. McCormlck' of

of Persecuted.
YORKTON. N. W. T., Oct. 30. Many and
varied opinions are expressed aa to the best
way of dealing; with the Doukhobars, but
on one point all agree, and that is that
nothing is to be feared from thorn phys
ically. Not in a single instance have they
been reported as creating any disturbance
or willfully doing any harm.
The mounted police tried to Induce them
to' change their quarters to a position north
of town and suoceeded In inducing them to
come to the centqr of the town, but they
positively refused, to move northwsrd, al
though offering no other opposition.
Last night they were ssmped four miles
down the track toward Saltcoats. As soon
as they were given their way a great many
of their number deserted. What causes
many to join is a desire for persecution, but
being .treated kindly they soon fall from
the ranks.
The women and children are still shel
tered In town snd are kept under guard of
special constables to prevent them Joining
