The ceremony took place In the old St

dants of tho same material, and bears four
black crosses. It was brought here from
Rome and its sacred Import wns described
as follows by Archbishop Glennon of St
Louis, who delivered the sermon:
Import of Insignia.
"Before Its being brought to St Peter'
tomb, there was the simple history of tho
making of this pallium at the hands of the
daughters of St Agnes, from the wool of
the lamb which were dedicated to St
Agnes, the virgin and murtyr, the snow
drop of the springtime In the Christian
Rome In the day of old. So. woven and
surmounted with the cross of her martyr
dom, the pallium was carried to the tomb
of the apostle, guarded there on his feast
day, blessed by the sovereign pontiff and
forwarded from that shrine here."
With the pallium were three Jewels, an
amethyst, a topax and a ruby, each set in
a pin for fastening th Insignia upon the
archbishop's garments. Contrary to cus
tom, these Jewels were not sent from
Rome, but wore, with the pope' permis
sion, gifts of an old New Orleans family,
friends of Archbishop Blenk of many years
standing. The Jewels are heirloom.
After the mas Archbishop Blenk re
newed hi oath of allegiance and fidelity to
the Holy See and then Cardinal Gibbon

REMEDY FOR CAR SHORTAGE
Hoada That Fall to Return Borrowed
Car Promptly Are to Re
CHICAGO. April 24. Decisive action was
taken here today by the American Railway
association to remedy the car shortage
which for several months hits been causing
so much worry among shippers throughout
the country. The failure of some roads to
furnish sufficient quota of equipment for
their own traffic and the failure to provide
and enforce proper rules for the return
of foreign cars to their own roads are re-
sponsible for the shortage and to remedy
the v'l the association today adopted a
rul"- to be confirmed later by letter ballot
of all the roads, providing that any rail
road which, hereafter shall not promptly
return to Its owner after unloading all
cra consigned to It will be penalised 15
for each car so misused, to be paid to the
owner of the car. This penalty Is in ad
dition to the per diem charge of 60 cents
which, after July 1, each road must pay
for each car not Its own, which may be
on Its lines.
In order to make the new rule more ef
fective, the principle of publicity is to be
Invoked through the Instrumentality of the
so-called Car Clearing House recently es

MEAT ARGUMENT AT LONDON

LONDON, April 24. There wa an at
tempt in the House of Commons this after
noon to revive the agitation against tho
American (tacking houses, a subject which
practically passed Into oblivion months
ago, and th Board of Trade rather dis
countenanced any recrudescence of the mat
ter. It arose from a question of Sir Wil
liam Bull, conservative, who suggested the
necessity for "protecting the meat trade
of this country against the attaoke of
foreign trusts," and the taking of etep to
"prevent meat unfit for food from being
marketed here by representative of the
American meat packere."
Mr. Llloyd George, president of the Board
of Trade, reminded Sir William that a bill
had already been Introduced by the presi
dent of the local government board, Mr.
Burns, dealing with the importation and

preparation of food.

"I am not aware that there Is any cause
for further action."

KEAk CLOSE OF LIBEL SUIT
Defense Eeiti and Connell Starta Attack en
VIC WALKER AND SHLRCLIFF ON GRIDDLE
Bartender of Former Telia About the
Dennison Check and Brother
f Latter Impeachea Star
The beginning of the end of the Dennlson-News
libel suit came yesterday after
noon shortly before 3 o'clock when the
defense rested with the understanding one
more witness, not In the city yesterday,
might be called today. The plaintiff at
once began an attack In rebuttal on the
evidence offered by the News tending to
reflect on the character and reputation of
Tern Dennison. The single witness yet to
be examined by the defense Is T. J. Ma
honey of the Civic Federation.
Early In the forenoon W. J. Broatch was
recalled to the witness stand by the de
fense to supplement his testimony of the
day before regarding the 'cancelled checks
given him by Vic Walker In 1903 and de
stroyed by him. He said the checks were
made payable to Tom Dennison and were
drawn on the Merchants' National bunk.
Tho remainder of the testimony for the de
fense was purely technical.
As soon as the defense had rested At
torney Connell began an attack on the
witnesses for the defense by means of im
peaching testimony. The evidence of Via
Walker regarding the giving of checks to
Dennison for alleged police protection was
first attacked. Will A. Minor, formerly
Walker's bartender, was the first witness.
He said he remembered of Dennlson's cash
ing a check for 170 for Walker in October,
1901, on the night he and Walker attended
a prise fight together. The contention of
the plaintiff Is that this was one of the
checks given by Walker to Broatch and
destroyed. Minor said Walker frequently
got Dennison to cash his chocks when he
ran short of ready money.
Homer Morris, a brother of Sherman W.
Morris, alias Frank Shercliff, the Pollock
diamond robber, went on the stand to Im
peach his brother's deposition. He said his
brother told him the case against Den
nison In Iowa was a put up Job made up
by Elmer Thomas and the Civic Federation.
He said his brother also told him the claim
that Dennison dug up the Pollock dia
monds at Missouri Valley was Incorrect
and the whole thing was a put up Job to
send Dennison to the penitentiary.
Chief Donahue went on the stand and
denied the truth of a conversation George
Burrler testified he had had with the chief.
Objection was made to the Introduction of
depositions by C. E. Llewellyn and C. E.
Doyle, contradicting some of the things In
Shercllff's deposition, and the Jury wa ex
cused until morning, while the attorneys
argued the law. Judge Estelle reserved his
ruling on the points until morning.
The cross-examination by W. J. Connell
of Vic Walker occupied the principal part
of the forenoon session Wednesday.
Walker was subjected to a close examina
tion by Mr. Connell In an effort to bring
out alleged discrepancies between his tes
timony Tuesday and testimony . he had
previously given.-' ..
R. Beecher Howell, I. H. Merchant and
