Identification of Crowe.
In his summary of the evidence Mr. Fitch
called attention to the' Identification ,of
Crowe and his pictures by a number of the
wUnesseqi.an4.-Lhe) tact that, he ,wa seen
with Callahan,, who. was Identified by Rddle
Cudahy as the inair who acted as hi guard
in the Grorer street house. He referred to
the letter written to Father Murphy and
declared Crowe'a connection with it waa
clear. He quoted the letter at some length
and pointed to it as positive evidence of
the guilt, of the defendant.
In closing he reminded the jury it was
not a question between Edward 'Cudahy
and Crowe, but between the state of Ne
braska and Crowe, and he urged the jurors
to bring In such a verdict as would be a
credit tq them In after life and to the state
of Nebraska. !
Mr. English began sneaking at 10:25. He
first referred to the rula, of criminal law
that presumes the defendant Innocent untli

the jury on the nearness pf the end of the

endorsed on the back of the information the
names of, nrnety-five. witnesses, lay and
clerical, police and private, forty-five of

anxiety has been whether this defendant
wilt be restored to the walks of life he is
fitted tar walk In,- or whether he will be
obliged to suffer the torments of con

Mr. English said under tne evidence no
man wth a regard for the solemnity of his
oath could have an abiding conviction that
the. $15,0(0 In gold had over been paid to
Mr. Cudahy. He said none of the witnesses

slender. He also pointed out dlscrepencles
in the description of the mustache on the
man identified as Crowe. He referred to
the "light man" as the hero of the melo
drama which Is making its second appear
ance In court.
The principal attack was .on the evidence
of Frank Glynn, who Identified Crowe aa
the man who telephoned Mr. Cudahy from
the livery barn. He reviewed the testi
mony of the three witnesses for the de
fense who said Glynn had told them he
was for Crowe and Crowe was not the man
who called at the stable.
"Whoever that man was," ho said. "God
only knows, But It violates every principle
of Intelligence to suppose that Pat Crowe
would have gone Into a place where ho
waa known to do his telephoning and thus
practically give himself into the hands of
the police." . .
Defense All Afternoon, -
Mr. English and Mr.' Ritchie occupied the
entire afternoon in their arguments and
it waa after' 5 o'clock when Judge Sutton
announced the court would adjourn. The
members of the jury and the others in
terested in the case expressed a preference
for a night session and he announced the
hearing would be resumed at 7 o'clock.
In his closing arguments Mr. English dis
credited the handwriting experts who Iden
tified the signature of Crowe on the receipt
aa the same writing as that on the Murphy
letter. He said there waa no evidence the
letter was ever In the hands of Father
Murphy and' openly charged it was a
forgery perpetrated by Plnkerton de
tectives who were after the reward. He
said the defense had not introduced much
evidence, as it relied on the weakness of
the case made by the state.
Mr. Ritchie, who followed him, had been
talking only a few minutes when he was
Interrupted by Mr. Slabaugh, who objected
to references to the attitude of the news
papers. ' Judge Sutton told him such refer
ences were Improper, as ' the newspapers
hud been kept from the jury during the
trial. Mr. Ritchie replied that he did not
like to be gagged and said he was only
going to thank the press for the treatment
his side of the case, had received and he
did not like to be Interrupted while he was
giving thanks. This remark caused a rip
ple of laughter and some applause in the
audience, which Judge Sutton sternly re
buked. Conrt Rekikri Andleaee.

membered as soon as he heard it waa a
millionaire's child that he knew something
about the case. He told the Jury a rich
man like Mr. Cudahy did not need the pro
tection of the courts as much as tho poor
and lowly and those who are looked upon
by some with prejudice because they are
of another color.
He discredited the identification of Crowe
and his pictures and declared all of the
witnesses were mistaken when they thought
they saw Crowe. He cited a number of
cases to show the uncertainty of circum
stantial evidence and declared that all of
the evidence In the case was circumstantial.
He called attention to the lack of evidence
that the defendant or any of his confeder
ates took the money alleged to have been
left on the Fremont road by Mr. Cudahy,
The flight of the defendant, he said, might
have been due to the fact that he was
accused of crime by persons ef wealth and
Influence. He said the prosecution in this
case was due to the fact that the police
failed to convict Crowe of the shooting of

Murphy had not been called to tell about

to Plnkerton detectives. He talked until

MITCHELL PRESINTS LIST OF DEMANDS
It I Referred to Special jmhrom.
mlttee ef Keren from Esrk fide
i Ootloelt lor Settlement
NEW YORK, Feb. IB. The special cale
committee of the United Anthracite Mine
Worker of Pennsylvania appeared before
the presidents and officials of the coal
mining companies here today and sis tod In
general terms the propositions It desired
the operators to grant and then retired to
formulate In detail the demands. Before
the conference adjourned, two subcommit
tee- of seven men each were appointed,
one representing the miners and the other
the operators, to take up Jointly the ques
tions at issue and endeavor to reach an
agreement. When these committee have
completed their work they will make a re
port to the conference. The utmost good
feeling prevailed during-the meeting and
there were many signs that all matters
at Issue may be settled without resort to
a strike. The conference, so far aa It re
lated to the coal companies, was the most
representative that has ever been held.
Every coal company in the anthracite
region was represented. President Mitchell
of the Miners' union was the spokesman
of the employes and made a speech that
waa tvell received by the operators. The
meeting was held behind closed doors in
the general offices of the Trunk Line asso
ciation and lasted less than an hour. After
the conference the following statement was
The following joint statements were Is
sued after the meeting:
There was a full representation of the
mine operating companies and the miners.
The meeting was called to order with Mr.
Connell In the chair. -
Mr. Mitchell addressed the meeting, stat
ing In general terms the proposition de
sired by the miners, stating that the same
had not been entirely formulated In detail.
After a brief discussion it was concluded
that the mine owners and mine operators
should each appoint a committee to repre
sent them In the future In reference to the
matter, the committees to consist of seven
each. The following 'were appointed to
represent the miner: Messr. John
Mitchell, John Fahey, George Hartleln,
v. n. ueurey, jonn . Gauagner. i.
Nlcholls. John T. Dcmnsey. and the fol
lowing to represent the mine operators:
Messrs. Baer. Truesdale. Kerr, v liicox,
Williams, Thomas, Cake.
The understanding was after the com
mittee terminated their work they should
report to the committee of the whole.
An adjournment was then had, with the
understanding that the committee would
arrange for further' meetings
Beyond the Information contained in the
statement given out, nothing could be
learned as to what occurred at the con
ference. It is believed, however, that the
demands are substantially the same as
those made public at the time of the meet
ing of the miner at Shamokin last De
cember. These demands call for an eight
hour day without any reduction in wages,
for employes paid by the hour, day or
week, a uniform wage scale for all classes
of employes; a 10 to JO per cent Increase in
wages; a reconstruction of the board of
conciliation and the recognition of the
union. There are other grievances of a
gnbcoinralttee at Work.
Immediately after the adjournment of the
conference the - miners' representative re
turned to their headquarters where the
sub-committee . held a preliminary meeting
to discuss plans.' After an hour's confer
ence it was announced that the sub-committee
will begin fchtf work of formulating
the demands .in detail tomorrow morning.
In the meantime the other members of the
scale committee will remain In New York
for consultation. It Is not known when
the miner' sub-committee will be ready
to meet the sub-committee of the operators

Before they went into conference today
the operators and the representatives of
the men were hopeful of .an amlcabla
agreement. The experience of both sides
In the great strike of 1902 has caused them
to approach the present situation in a
conciliatory mood. In that contest the
mine workers, according to estimates made
by the strike commission, lost in wages
about IX.OOO.OOO and the coal production
fell off :4,WO.0uO tons. The receipts of the
coal companies in that year were reducad
$46,10u,00U and those of the railroads about
$28,000,000, making a total loss In 1903 of
about $12,700,000. In 'order to avoid another
contest and pot disturb the Industry, the
operators are ready to make concessions

Agent of American House Tells of In.

SAN FRANCISCO. Feo. 15.-C E. Young,
an eye witness for the rioting in Shanghai,
arrived here today from the Orient on the
steamer Doric. He tells of the Intense
antl-forelgn sentiment that exists among
the Chinese and predicts that an up
rising will take place within the next
few months. Young says that L'uO Chinese
were killed in the riot in Shanghai and
that only the presence of the foreign gun
boats at Shanghai prevented the whole
sale slaughter of Americans and English
men. Young represents a local firm, but
because of the boycott he was unahltt to
transact any business with the Chinese
merchants. Young said:

of the outbreak and remained there for
the few days following, during which all
foreigners were compelled to carry rifles in
order to protect themselves from harm.
It seems that a Chinese woman, accused
of trafficking In slave girls, was haled
before the consular court. She was found
guilty and sent to Jail. The Chinese pro
tested and Immediately a riot was started.
The rioters ran from street to street
searching for foreigners. Revolvers and

Chinese answered wilh volleys of stones.
Many were hurt by t lie flying mlHslJe. but
I heard of no fatalities among tho Ameri

of foreigners were driven to "bay bv the

assailants before they put them to flight.
The Chinese government officials, of
course, were powerless to put an end to'

did not appear either in person or by
attorney.- After reading the bill, the court
entered an order appointing Daniel J.
Hcaly, a stockholder, receiver. Bonds of
150,000 were furnished ond Mr. Hcaly took
charge of the bunk.
