rishioner, to b present at the churches

The chief danger of disorders In Paris 1
believed to He In the possible Invasion of
churches by rowdies and free thinkers. Re
serves of gend'armea will be stationed at
various points throughout the city to guard
against troubles of this sort. The effort,
made by certain members of the Chamber
of Deputies and other disinterested perrons
to Insure a continuation of churc ties in eplta
t the papal veo, by Inducing Catholic lay
men In each parish to make the forbidden
declaration have not thus far met with
much success. Up to a late hour tonight
the Church of 8t. John the Evangel was
the only church where such legal applica
tion had been made.
The Indications are against anything
which might be dignified by the name of re
ligious war, and the prompt expulsion from
France yesterday of Mgr. Montagnlnl, sec
retary of the papal unclature here since th
recall of the nuncio, coupled with the threat
to expel recalltrant clergymen from France,
has had a sobering Influence. The militant
Catholics are In a hopeless minority and the
masses are rather Indifferent, or except In
a few Isolated Instances, Inclined to side
with the government.
a Demonstration at Xaney.
There wss a riotous demonstration at
Nancy today while the bishop was moving
out of his residence. A crowd of 2.000 ac
companied the officials to the residence,
hooting them constantly. The bishop will
be prosecuted on the charge of assautlng
a policeman because he laid his hand upon
a policeman's shoulder while he was leav

Prosecutions have been begun against the

compel aspirant, to th priesthood to nil
their military obligation, and. If necessary,
treat th clergy as subject, of a foreign
power. This constitutes a sufficient demon
stration of the spirit with which the gov

After thirty-five hours of almost cease
less deliberation the Jury ln the first of the
Coal trust cases retaraed th.1. verdict Into
Judge Sutton", court Wednesday morning
at : o'clock. The fact n verdict was
reached at all after two nights and a day
of fruitless work on the part of the Juror,
surprised everybody connected with the
case. The defense gave notice It would tile
a motion for a new trial and Indicated it
would cary the case to the supreme court.
If necessary, in an endeavor to have the
verdict set aside.
The twelve Jurors, wan and tired from
the long vigil, were granted excuse, from
further service by Judge Sutton a. soon
a. the formalities of returning the verdict
had been completed. They all expressed
great satisfaction that the arduous case
was over and gathering up their overcoats
and bundles hurried home to make up th
sleep the have lost.
Contest Over the Result.
The contest ln the Jury room was a hard,
one. according to hints that leaked out
during the morning. The first ballot stood
7 to for conviction, but after a little dis
cussion two of the five deserted to the ma
jority and for the rest of the long session
the vote continued to J- It stood at thi.
point most of Tuesday and Tuesday night.
The juror, worked until late Tuesday night
and then settled down on chairs, bench,
and table, as best they could to get som
sleep. At 6 o'clock Wednesday morning
the balloting began again and still the
three hung out. The Juror, went to break
fast with no evidence of a break ln the
deadlock. On their return from the morn
ing meal another ballot waa taken and two
more went to the side of the prosecution,
making the vote stand 11 to L One mors
ballot resulted ln the agreement.
The verdict was reached about o'clock
anu the defendant and his attorney, wsr
at once summoned by telephone to hear th
result. At 9:40 the Jurors, looking much
the worse for the hours spent In the Jury
room, filed Into court and took their place
ln the box. Foreman Edwin B. Brain
handed the verdict to Bailiff Klrkendall,
who passed It to Deputy District Clerk
Gallagher, who read it. Deep disappoint
ment was written ail over the face, of th
eight or ten coal men who were In th
court room when they heard th word
"guilty." Up to that time they bad ex
pressed themselves as confident of an ac
quittal. Dtfeas Demands Poll of Jury.
J. F. Stout, representing the defendant,
askci that the Jury be polled and In reply
to tn questions of the district clerk all of
them declared they had agreed to the
Verdict and still adhered to It.
"Gentlemen of the Jury." said Judge
Sat ton after the formality had been fin
ished, "the court realizes thi. haa been
a very hard and laborious trial for the
' Jurors. It has probably seemed hard to
i the Jurors that thi y should have been
! locked up during tha case. Ti.ls Is ths flrt
j jury for some time that has been out two
: cor.tlriuous nights. Jurors ars like soldiers.
They have to make many sacrifices for
; their country. I believe the sweetest
memories of old soldiers are of tb. liard-
tin anrl nrlvatlons thev have undergone.
j I am satisfied that us years go by you will
' look back upon this service and It will
1 fclve you i.J little sa.tlHfuctlon to recall
tho hatdships you went through In the
service of the slat'!."
Judge button said he would excuse any
1 of the Jurors, who wanted to go horn.

he 1 from further service.
