Jsrrr Finds Chlcaaro Politician Gnlltr
of Breach of Promise to
CHICAGO, Nov. 15. A Jury today re
turned a verdict of $15,000 In favor of Miss
Mabel Peland against John O'Ncll. a for
mer alderman and prominent contractor,
for breach of promise of marriage.
The case ,has been on trial for several
weeks and has excited much Interest. Miss
Beland was for several years an inmate
of O' Neil's home nnd continued to reside
there aa his housekeeper after the divorce
of Mrs. O'Neil from her husband. She
brought suit, claiming that O'Neil had
promised to marry her, and duluunded
$50,000 for his failure to adhere to the cou
tract she declared he had made with her.
I O'Neil denied the charge absolutely and
I fought the case with every resource in his
! power.
I During the trial it was shown by the evi
dence that O'Neil and Miss Beland had
I taken trips to Marquette, Mich., and other
places In th northwest.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15.-Tlie full
Board of Consulting Engineers of the
Panama Canal had an all-day session to
day and continued the the work upon the
different types of canal. There seems to
be a general Impression thut a large num
ber of engineers at present favor a sea
level canal, but an Intimation has been
made that' there might be a compromise
upon a low level lock canal, which would
be very satisfactory to the Canal com
mission and the administration.
The officers who accompanied Secretary
Taft to Panama to investigate the matter
of fortifications for the canal have not
yet made a report and will not until a
type of canal Is determined. Upon the
type of canal will depend the location of
the mouths of the cunul. and no definite
plans for fortifications will be feasible until
the places where the protection will be
needed can be definitely known.

Mr. Hyde Takes the Staad Asala and
Belteratea Former Statements.
Mr. Odrll Will Testify.
NEW YORK, Nov. 13.-B. II. llarrlman.
chairman of the board of directors of the
Union Parlflc railroad, formerly member
of the board of directors of the Equitable
Life Assurance society, the former friend of
James Hazen Hyde, against Whom the latter
charged acts of an . unfriendly i-alure In
his testimony yesterday, was one of the
chief witnesses before the Armstrong com
mittee on insurance Investigation today.
Mr. llarrlman was called immediately be
fore recess and his testimony was 1 series
of denials of the charges made by Mr.
Hyde. Contrary to Mr. Hyde's statement,
Mr. Harrlman said Mr. Hyde came to him
about a year or so ago and asked him to
use his influence to have him appointed
ambassador to France. Mr. Harrlman said
he would speak to President Roosevelt
when he saw him. but added that he did
not recommend Mr. Hyde for the post.
Upon Mr. Hyde's testimony relative to
the settlement of the Odell suit being
read to him Mr. Harrlman denied that he
suggested to Mr. Hyde any danger of the
repeal of the charter of the Mercantile
Trust company, directly or Indirectly, and
stated that Mr. Hyde came to Urn and
asked him to use his Influence villi Mr.
Odell, toward a settlement of the rult.
Mr. Harrlman explained that be wanted
Mr. Hyde's Individual signature to the
syndicate agreement for the $50,00000 Union
Pacific pool becausn no syndicate wanted
a corporation as a member. He Justified
this because It. was difficult to Tmrl con
fidences when morn tlian one' Individual
represented the same Interest. He denied
that he ever advised Mr. Hyde to sell his
stock until after the report of fhe Ftlck
committee, and said he had offered to sub
scribe $M0,0O to assist Mr. Hyde In retain
ing his stock.
Unwarrantable Transactions.
Mr. Harrlman said the Frlck report never
mentioned the Union Pacific deal specifi
cally, but Included it under the general
statement that Mr. Hyde had committed
the society In unwarrantable transactions
without the knowledge of the committee.
Mr. Harrlman thought it perfectly proper
for the Equitable to buy Union Pacific
under an agreement to hold It for five
years. He did not know that It was Mr.
Hyde's personal money In this deal and
always supposed It was that of the Equita
ble. Witness denied that he had requested
that the executive committee be not In
formed of this deal, and when Mr. Hyde's
testimony on this point was read to him,
he replied that "he did not remember."
Mr. Harrlman said that early In the
Equitable troubles he had defended Mr.
Hyde from attacks and had advised him
to move the adoption of the Frlck report,
telling him that he would stand by him
through thick and thin. .
Mr. Hyde was the- first witness of the
day. He told of four offers for his stock,
besides that of Mr.' Ryan, to whom he sold.
These offers were by Mr. Frlck and
Mr. Harrlman, by George Gould, by Gage
E. Tarbell, representing a syndicate, and
by George W. Young. The largest offer
was made by Mr. Young, former president
of the United States Mortgage and Trust
company, who .offered S7.000.000. Mr. Hyde
said he dccllmnl all these offers,' because
he did not think It to the best interest of
the society to accept any of them. . Mr.
Ryan then mado:the only 'offer for the
slock after the Frlck report Hyde was
excused while George II. Squire, Jr., a
stock broker arid, son of the former finan
cial manager of the Equitable Life, waa
called to explain some transactions of his
father. He told how his firm sold stock of
the Lawyers' Title Insurance and Trust
company for his father's account to the
American Deposit and Loan company.
George H. Jenkins, formerly president of
this company, was called and said that
George H. Squire requested that all of
this stock offered by his son's firm be
purchased. This was done from time to
time and subsequently sold to the- Equi
table Life at an advance, the profits going
to Mr. 8quire.
Hyde Reiterates Statements.
Mr. Hyde was again called and said this
was the first he had heard of these trans
actions. He said In answer to Senator
Armstrong that his powers of attorney
were destroyed when he returned from
Europe, but that it an obligation should
turn up now purporting to have been made
while he was abroad the situation would
be very embarrassing.
After Mr. Harrlman had testified Mr.
Hyde was railed again and asked If he
heard Mr. Harrlman testify. He replied
that he had. He reaffirmed his previous
testimony and supplied data about several
questions concerning which Mr. Harrlman
waa uncertain.
Samuel Untermeyer, counser for Mr.
Hyde, attempted to cross-examine Mr.
Harrlman. but the committee after con
sultation refused permission, whereupon
Mr. Untermeyer asserted the examination
had been eonducted in a disorderly man
ner. With today's session the examination of
both Mr. Hyde and Mr. Harrlman was com
pleted, and the next witness who Is awaited
with much Interest Is Mr. Odell, who hss
requested to be examined.
Mr. Jordan Is the Auditor.
Michael Murray, cashier for the Equitable
Life, said he did not know of the J. W.
Alexander No. S account until June of this
year. For years he received checks fror.j
Thomas D. Jordan, drawn to Murray's order
by the Mercantile Trust company and de
posited as cash to the credit of the Equitable-
Life. Mr. Murray also detailed tho
manner In which Mr. Jordan would aak for
cash, thousands of dollars at a time, and
put a ticket as a memorandum In the
drawer. Mr. Jordan would then give a
check and the cash ticket was returned to
Mr. Jordan. The check was considered ns
so much cash, but no other entry waa made
anywhere of this transaction.
Mr. Murray said that prior to June, 196,
there was a memorandum account of per
haps $400,000 that was taken up by check.
This account had been carried In the le
partment aver since Mr. Murray's connec
tion with It In the early '9. This account
was a cash memorandum book; there was
no indication in the book aa tu who got the
$400,000. or of the times, at which it was
taken. This book was In place of a ticket
in the drawer and waa treated aa cash on
hand. Mr, Murray was asked what th
auditing committee did when it came across
this book and created much amusement
when ho replied that Mr. Jordan was tha
auditor. .
Senator Armstrong asked Mr. Murray If
ha had had any communication with Mr.
Jordan or knew where he waa, and witness
replied that he had not sees or heard of
him ainoa ha walked out of tha Equitable
building, and knew of no one that did know
Mr. Jordan's whereabout.
Adjournment was then taken.

ST. LOUIS. Nov. 15-Unlled States Cir
cuit Judge Vandeventer today overruled
the demurrer filed yesterday to the indict
ment of United States. Senator Burton of
The trial of Senator Burton on the
charge of having used his influence before
the Postofflce, department In behalf of the
Rlalto Grain and Securities company of
St. Louis, to prevent the Issuance, of ft
fraud order against the eomiany Is set
for beginning on next Monday.
Tho demurrer overruled by Judge Vamle
vanter was based upon two counts In the
Indictment, and set forth the contention
thnt the charges that Benator Burton had
received compensation for services from a
concern against which tho proceedings
were pending were vague in that it did not
specify the exact nature of the proceedings
said to be pending. The seconrt Injunction
raised In the demurrer waa that It was
not specifically stated In the Indictment
that Senator Burton knew of the proceed
ings against the company by the postofflce
department, when. It was alleged, he re
ceived compensation.
As to the first objection In the demurrer.
Judge Vandevanter said:
It seems to me that tho fact chnrged was
that a proceeding was pending. This same
point was raised on the previous Indictment
and sir co then I have made a very close
study of this feature of the case and it
seems the proceeding is siitfontly de
scribed In the Indictment. It is immaterial
how that proceeding came to be pending.
It Ir material only that a proceeding wus
As to the second objection, Judge Van
devanter said:
I am strongly persuaded that one could
not receive compensation under these cir
cumstances without knowing that proceed
ings were under way or about to be begun.
Concluding his opinion, he said:
As to the Indictment in this case I anr
of the opinion that the district attorney
could not well have prepared an indictment
more in accord with the requirements of
the statute.
Attorneys representing Senator Burton
this afternoon filed a plea in bar to prose
cution under this indictment. This plea
Is based on the verdict In the trial of
Burton almost two years ago, which found
him guilty on certain charges In the indict
ment and not guilty on other charges. Ho
was found not guilty of having received
compensation from an officer of the Rlalto
company. The plea In bar sets forth that
having previously been acquitted on this
specific charge ho cannot a second lime be
placed In Jeopardy for the same offense.
Arguments will be heard before Judge
Vandervanter tomorrow morning.

Mayor Wells welcomed tho delegates In be

Report from Orient.
The latest reports from Vladivostok Indi
cate thnt th" rioting has not yet been sup
pressed. Both the sailors and the fortress
artillerymen participated In the outbreak.
The commandant lost his head. The situa
tion got beyond his control and energetic
measures were not taken until a large pHrt
of the city had been destroyed. The popu
lation Is still seeking refuge on the vessels
I". the harbor.
According to one report from Vladivostok
!W0 rioters, mostly sailors and artillerymen,
were killed or wounded during the first day
of the outbreak.
At tho Sangalll works there was a fight
between strikers nnd anti-strikers, during
which four men were killed and ten were
wounded with knives.
The electric lights will be shut off this
evening and the city win again bo In dark
ness tonight. The car drivers and cabmen
have also been asked to join in the strike.
Government tnprennred.
The suddenness and magnitude of the
movement has terrorized the inhabitants
and has caught the government ss usrral
unprepared. The streets are already full of
Cossacks, cavalry and Infantry, hut the
authorities, in tho face of such a gigantic
revolutionary demonstration, seem to be
hesitating over what course to pursue. In
asmuch as thousands of arms were bought
and distributed during the last few days
under cover of providing for defense against
the "Black Hundred" the danger of blood-
shed on a largo scale should the troops
nre rs greany increased. 1 r.e revolutionary
leaders boldly boast that the people are
now better prepared and better armed for
a conflict. Moreover they assert confidently
that they know positively that the soldiers
of several of the guard regiments will re
fuse to fire upon the people.
Tho English mill owners at a meeting
this afternoon decided to shut down indefi
nitely, as It Is impossible to attempt to
continue work while the present revolu
tionary spirit prevails. At the embassies
tho situation was regarded hs mirchmore
serious than over before. Genuine alarm
Is miinlfested as to whether tho govern
ment will be able to meet the Impending
crisis. Measures are being taken, but their
nature Is not disclosed.
Other Matlons Active.
The report that Germany Is massing
troops on the Polish frontier Is said to be
conrmed from high sources, nnd It Is un

current report, land troops to protect Uvea

A largo meeting of workmen Is being
held, at which the most incendiary
speeches are being made and , resolutions
adopted. The following are samples:
We do not believe In the partial con
stitutionalism of Count Wttte or In the
lying representations of tho liberal bour
geolse. We see only thousands of corpses
and thousands of wounded and beaten per
sons and the seas of blood that have
flowed. We will continue h struggle for
the amelioration of our position, the Im
mediate apportionment of the land to the
tillers of the soil, liberation of every politi
cal prisoner, and the establishment of a
democratic republic. We appeal to our
brothers, the peasants, to aid in the strug
gle. Our watchword Is: "Bread to the work
men, land to the peasants, liberty to the
people, down with absolutism."
We express sympathy with our comrades
at Cronstadt. If the government dares to
execute them the proletariat will rise and
the blood of the sailor heroes will be
drowned In the blood of their butchers,
the Infamous servants of absolutism.
Glory to the dead who fought for liberty.
Down with the tyrants.
