She Made A (a I not Son's
ANNAPOLIS. Aug. T.-The navsl board
of Inquiry, v hlch Is Investigating the
death of Lleutennnt James N. Sutton of
ths Marine Corps, today held a two hours
session behind closed doors and adjourned
until M.inday, when. It was announced,
the hearing will again be thrown open to
The secret session today was for ths
purpose of examining Mrs. Sutton, mother
of Lieutenant Sutton, In regard to the
contents of Severn letters about her son's
death, which she wrote to Colonel Charles
A. Doyen, senior officer of the Marine
CoTps at the Naval academy, and others,
which the board ruled yesterday should
be admitted in evidence, but should not
be read In open court.
Major Leonard, the Judge advocate, had
not finished Interrogating Mrs. Sutton In
regard to the letters when the adjourn
ment was token today.
She Aaka Public Hearing;.
Her own urgent request that the exam
ination be continued publicly on Monday,
and that the contents of the letters, for
the most part, be made known at that
time, was not determined.
Commander Hood, presiding officer of the
board, enjoined all the Interested parties
today from discussing the letters out of
court. It Is known, however, that they
contain bitter and pointed allegations
against some of the young officers of the
Marine Corps, who are now appearing as
defendants In the case.
Mrs. Sutton expressed her disappoint
ment at the secret session when seen after
court today. She said that as long as
her letters were placed In evidence she
had no objections to having them made
public. Henry K. Davis, her counsel, made
a strong fight to keep the letters from
being admitted when Major Leonard of
fered them In evidence.
Prepared to Bark Statements.
"There may be some startling declara
tions In the letters," said Mrs. Sutton, "but
I am prepared to repeat whatever I said
and back' up my statements. I do not
want any secrecy."
Besides Mrs. Sutton, her daughter, Mrs.
Rose Sutton-Parker of St. Paul, remains
to be examined as a witness. Mrs. Par
ker's testimony promises to be somewhat
sensational. She is expected to tell the
results of her personal Investigation of her
brother's death, and relate pertinent con
versations with some of the young offi
cers of the Marine Corps, who now stand
before the court as accused by her and
her mother of complicity In the shooting
Of October IS, 1U07, when Lieutenant Sutton
was killed, or killed himself, as the for
mer board of Inquiry determined.
There may be other witnesses called be
fore the court completes Its work. Mr.
Davis will sum up the Sutton side of the
case, former United States District Attor
ney Blrney of Washington will have some
thing to say In behalf of his client Lieu
tenant Robert E. Adams of the Marine
Corps, and Major Leonard will make the
final argument for the government. The
Inquiry Is expected to last until near the
end of next week.
TEST FOR MODERN SOLOMON
Bflxup of Two New Babies Whom
the Stork Neglected to
A case worthy the attention of one Solo
mon the Wise, or Shapespeare, or the Vir
ginian, shattered the serenity and peace
of St. Luke's hospital In Denver and gave
two brand new, but fondly fond sets of
parents into the fell clutch of hysteria
It transpired that two very new babies
happened to make their entrance Into
this vale of tears at exactly tlte same
moment of the same day. Such occur
rences are rare, even In hospitals, and
because natal duets are not de rigeur,
even In the most up-to-date hospitals,
the nurses fluttered and the physicians

Such dear little babies never were be

den as the chief figures In' a drama whose
end may ever be In doubt.
They were the plumpest, roundest, red
est, wrlnkledest, blx-lunged babies that
nurses or physicians ever saw, and
though one baby was born to the purple,
which means money in magnificent heaps,
the other came to share an humbler lot,
yet their habits and motions were Identi
cal. Both shot round fists Into wide, noisy
moist mouths; both curled their little
feet as though expecting some sympa
thetic twig to trail Into reach, and both
kept their eyes shut as though- they had
been mewing ' kittens Instead of sons of
Being born in a civilised country, the
first decent thing for baby to do was to
be swaddled. Simultaneously, therefore,
out of two rooms came th nurses bear
ing Infants toward the dressing room.
"Isn't he cute?" asked one nurse, not
given to emotions or excess of praise.
"Yes: and Isn't he?" asked th other,
rolling back a corner of white flannel
from what seemed to b a bundle of the
same material In red.
Just then uprose a clamor. Carefully
the brand new citizens were laid In cra
dles while the nurses rushed to meet an

Hon shot from frightened eyes.
"Mine was In the right-hand crip." In

"No. Indeed, that was mine. I remember
as though It had been this minute you

"There's a Reason."
Neither was certain and both were
frightened over tho mix. and the toilet of
the strangers was completed In silence.
One mother the lady of plenty lay
whits and still and smiled, from her pil
low and laces, angelic greeting to her
son when he was laid warm and sweet
and bawllngly Indifferent In her arms.
One penetrating look she gave sonny

In the adjoining room the other mother,
her soft hair falling In two braids over
the shoulders of her plain gown, hugged

"Isn't he sweet?" whispered the woman,
"and he's all mine. It doesn't seem real
that he's mine."
"Is he hers?" That's the question that
the frightened nurses are asking.
That's the question that one prominent
physician Insists Is "piffle."
It's the question that the Lady of Plenty
broods over and Insists on being answered
right. For her maternal Instinct has failed
to blase by contact with the Infant placed
In her arms, because she Insists that her
baby had a mark.
The other mother Is content In her pos

The home board of the Odd Fellows of
South Dakota, which has in charge the
matter of erecting a state home for agid
and Indigent members, has practically de
cided upon seventy acres of what Is known
as the Cooley farm, near Dell Rapids, as
the site for the home, Dell Rapids having
been selected as the location for the home.
In order to secure the home Dell Rapids
gave a bonus approximating obout $12,000,
The site now selected Is the highest point

The contract for the erection of the home

HURON, 8. D., Aug. 7. (Special.) That
the Chicago A. Northwestern Railway com

Is evidenced from the fact that Immense
quantities of material are being stored In
the yards here. Besides huge piles of lum
ber, bridge timber, etc., the company has
unloaded nearly 300.000 ties here. It Is inti
mated that this material Is for the pro

supply of material Is being added to daily,
both at this place and at other points in

PORTUGAL'S YOUNG KING BUSY
Don Manuel Has Turned from Play to
Work Since Hla Ar-reaalon to
LISBON. July 2S. One of the questions
Interesting Europe at present Is who will
be chosen to wed King Manuel of Portu
gal. Bngland has authoritatively denied
that Princess Alexandra of Fife. King Ed
ward's. granddaughter, Is to marry him and
Germany denies that th little Princess Vic
toria Lulse has been betrothed to Don Man
uel. As for the youthful king of Portugal
himself, he bothers little about brides and
weddings at present.
It was in February. 190g, that Manuel
Marie Philip Charles Amelia Louis Michel
R-sphael Gabriel, duke of Beja, then a lad
of 18, busy with his studies and schoolboy
sports, became king of Portugal and the
Algarves through the assassination of his
father and elder brother. Since then he
has reconstituted his dally life and th
careless boy has become a grave young
man, taking life almost too seriously, pet
haps, for his own good. He resembles
greatly his beautiful mother and has a
fine, expressive face, with dark, heavlly-
snaaowea eyes and very black hair. In
Physique he is slight but erect, and though
three or four years ago he was accounted
a delicate boy now he seems sturdy and
The greatest love and confidence exists
between Queen Amelle and King Manuel.
They are more Ilk good friends and com
panions than mother and son. Together
they work for the state. Together they
walk, drive and read. Queen Amelle Is
still beautiful, though since the tragedy
which deprived her of husband and son
she has aged somewhat and lost th
vivacity which made her considered the
"most charming queen In Europe."
