BAXTER'S SIDE0F THE CASE
District Attorney fCanlalna Details of
Hla f'onaeetlna with Prost
ration of iMmd Fencers.
District Attorney Baxter today declared
himself further on the Bartlclt Richards
case a follows:
"I notice a press dispatch from Washing
ton In this morning's Uee headed '8nre
Over Richaids Ca-e.' In said Item appears '
the following statement:. 'According to
an Item In the New York Sun, District At
torney Baxter some time ago advised the
Department of Justice to nolle prosequi
the case against Richards, but tha reply
was a rebuke from the attorney general.'
This statement is absolutely false, I never
at any time recommended or advised a
nolle prosequi to be entered In tha Bart
lett Richards case, nor even suggested
same to the attorney general, nor have I
ever received from the attorney general a
rebuke as to said matter.
"As to the further Item as follows: 'Sub
sequently the district attorney proponed a
compromise with the law breakers, but he
was Instructed to go ahead and prosecute
the case vigorously.' As to this I will say
that counsel for Richards and Comstock
made a proposition to at once remove all
of their fences, provided after such re
moval the indictments against them be
dismissed. I refused to entertain this prop
osition and referred the matter to the
attorney general for action, stating that
I saw no objection to auch course. He
declined the proposition and did Instruct
a vigorous prosecution.
"As to the statement in said article,
'Now the department officers understand
that the district attorney himself repre

moral turpitude' as to this I wish to state
that I made no such representation to the
court, and the court did not act In passing
sentence upon any representation whatever
made by me. The only statement In that con-
i nectlon which 1 made at all was that ths
I special agents hud Informed me that Ricli-
ards had removed some fences, but not all.

distinguished divines representing thirty
seven denominations from all sections of
the country, the Inter-church conference on
federation, which has been In session for
the psst week, adjourned today. After

the speakers today. Rlshop Hendrlx spoke
on "The Idenl State."
Some of the irsolutlons on social, re
ligious, political and business problems
which the business committee presented to
the convention were as follows:
Resolved. Thnt we urge upon law makers
the need of uniform divorce laws and that
these laws shall conform to a high stand
ard. That we believe that the manifold and
often distinguished forms of popular gam
bling now In vogue, especially belling n
elections and on college games, and tin
use of prizes In social guinea, should
prompt the church"9 to Inrrease warnings
and Instruction on the subject that all may
know that whenever It is determined by
chance, what or how much one gets for
his money, It Is a lottery, and also thnt the
essence of the sin of gambling consists In
trifling with the sai red trust of propel t,
and In getting something of value In a
business transaction without fair exchHngo.

Another resolution Inserted the words "to
the utmost limit righteously enforceable"
in a declaration favoring laws restricting
the liquor traffic. The word "graft" In an
other resolution provoked a long discussion.
It was finally decided that this word should
remain. This resolution was Introduced
yesterday and condemned the "widespread
commercialism which Jesus called covetous
nesa and condemned more severely than
any other vice."

Rev. Dr. Roberts, the permanent chair
man of the conference, delivered an ad

tion has been In the hearts of Christians.
John Calvin wrote to Cramer, arctihlstiop
of Canterbury, and declared he would cross
any sea to make sucn a union effective.
The dream of the great reformer and
the great archbishop tins met Willi realisa
tion in these latter days. It remained for
the twentieth century to give It realiza
tion. Here are thirty-seven denominations,
who represent by their affiliations the
whole of Europe and America and tnrough
their emissaries the whole of the world.
Three things I wish to say. Let it be
cleany understood mat we are not an
tagonistic to anynoay claiming me v nris
tlan name, rather let us cherish for them
the charity lllusttated In the life of our
Lord and Savior. Let it be clearly under

Mrs. PlnLham'a Standing Invitation
Women Buffering- from any form of
female weaknessare iuvited to promptly
communicate with Mrs. I'inkham, at
Lynn, Mass. All letters are received,
opened, read and answered by women
ouly. A woman can freely talk of her
private illness to a woman; thus has
been established the eternal confidence
between Mrs Pinkham and the women
of America which has never been
broken. Out of the vast volume of
experience which she has todraw from,
it is more than possible that she has
gained the very knowledge that will
help your case. - She asks nothing in
return except your pood-will, and her
advice has relieved thousands. Surely
any woman, ricli or poor, iavery foolish
if she docs not take advantage of this
generous offer of assistance.
If you are ill. don't hesitate to get a
hottlaof Lydia E. I'inkham's Vegetable
