WASHINGTON, IX. C, Nov. S0.-Paa-
slonate oratory marked the proceedings
today in the trial of Mrs. Annie M. Brad
ley charged With the shooting and killing
of former Senator Brown of Utah, in this
city last Deoember. The oourt room was
nable to accommodate the great number
of people ,who came to witness the last
scenes of the tragedy that has attracted
national attention for nearly a year. Many
of the attendants were ladlsa and some of
them arrived at the olty hall long before
the doors of the court room were opened
In order to secure desirable positions from
which to witness the events of the day.
Mrs. Bradley cam Into Oourt as If fully
alive to the Importance of the prooeed-
ngs. She took her accustomed place where
she could be plainly seen by the jurymen
and very near her counsel. '
The day was devoted to hearing argu
ments by attorneys on both sides of the
case. Assistant District Attorney Turner
opened for the government and he wss
followed by Mr, Wells of oounsel for the
Mr. Turner urged the Jury to consider the
case on the same basis as if It were a
man Involved and as if It were an ordinary
mind Involved instead of the brilliant mind
f Mrs. Bradley. Sympathy, passion or
prejudice should not be considered. Mr.
Turner, shortly after he began Ills argu
ment, broke down with Amotion and the
court proceeding was temporarily sus
pended. Mr. Turner soon regained his
composure and resumed Ms arguments.
A Danger ta Society.
Mr. Turner characterised as dangerous
the woman who considered a man not her
husband more sacred to ber than does the
wife herself. He said that even a horse
doctor could ' have discerned that Mrs.
Bradley when she shot Brown was not
suffering from toxlo insanity.
Mr. Turner concluded with the state
ment that Mrs. Bradley's act was that of
Sane person deliberately planned.
Robert Wells then opened for the de-
tense. Mr. Wells told the Jury that the
defense had not submitted its case on the
unwritten law, but on the law of the land.
which safeguarded defenseless women.
Mr.' Welle' argument was so impressive
that Mrs. Bradley nearly fainted. Judge
Powers, one of her counsel, sought to divert
her mind by talking to her, but She brushed
him away and listened closely to what Mr.
Wells was saying. Mr. Wells concluded at
12:47 and court adjourned until Monday
morning at 10 o'clock.

After giving- a long 'explanation of the

he believed the court to have erred from a
misunderstanding of the conditions and
not from a desire to be sensational, Mr.
"I refrain from comment, except to put
before fair-minded business men these
qiiostlons: What Incentive had the clerk to
violate the strict orders from his superiors
to conform to the law? If there was no
Incentive, Is It not more than a fair pro
sumption that he did not Intend to violate
the law? If without Incentive and without
Intent, he did under a strict technical con
structton violate the law to the extent of
paying $400, should his employing company,
the officers of which knew nothing of the
transaction, be mulcted for $330,000? Does

Those who take a gloomy view
of the outlook for business In the
United Etates, says James W. Van
Cleve, president ot the National
Association of Manufacturers,
should ponder these facta: While
the United States hat only 6 per
cent of the world's population. It
produces 20 per cent of Its wheat,
25 per cent ot its gold, S3 per
cent of its coal, 35 per cent of its
manufacturers, 21 per cent of tts
silver, 40 per cent of its Iron, 4 2
per cent of its steel, IS per cent
of Its petroleum. 65 per cent of Its
copper, 70 per cent of its cotton
and SO per cent ot ttt corn.
And yet the producing possibili
ties of the country are beyond cal
culation. In agriculture millions
of acres of fertile lands remain un
touched, while the rapid and
steady growth of the oil, coal and
mining Industries demonstrates
the Inexhaustible wealth that lies
beneath the soil.

RUSSIAN PLANS ARE NO GOOD
Adaalraltr Will ieeare pMslnatlonS
for War Vessel fro at Baa
ST. PETERSBURG, , Nov. .-Because ot
criticism of the decision ef the admiralty
to purchase the plans for a Russian Dread-
naught from Vlcker Bona ana Maxim, tne
English shipbuilders, the government has
decided to institute a competition to be
open to Russian and foreign firms for de
signs for new battleships. The vessels must
be built in St. Petersburg or Russian ma
terial, by Russian workmen and they must
be fitted with Russian engines. The suo
cessful competitor will supervise the con
struction, and he will be penalised ror ae
flclenctes in speed, etc. As a matter of
fact, however, the competition is limited
to Vlckers Sons and Maxim, as the plans
must ba presented within thirty days. The
decision of the government to go abroad
for plans is a sore blow to the Russian de
signers of warships. The technical com
mitter of ths navy had worked out naif
a doien designs, Dui not one or mem wae
