JUDGE OBJECTS TO PUBLICITY Reporters Cautioned Not to Color Stories, as County Has Had Too Much Notoriety Already. LINCOLN CENTER. Kan., Nov. 17.- Twelve Jurymen, all subject to challenge, sat .In the box when the case of Sherrlll Clark, a wealthy merchant and brother of Everett G. Clark, who already has pleaded guilty; A. N. Slmms, a mill worker, and John Schmltt, a farmer, was called In the district court today. The three are' charged with assault and bat tery in connection with the tarring of Miss Mary Chamberlain of Shady Bend, Kan. Farmers from surrounding counties who had driven as many as forty miles to hear the "tarrin' ' case, and every citi zen who could "knock off!' from his work filled Judge Grover's court room so that the Judge himself with difficulty got in side. Following Judge Grover's order that no women or children be allowed in the court room because the Judge believed the testimony would be unfit for the ears of any mother or daughter of- Lincoln county,; the few women regulars who have been attending the trial were no ticeably absent and the men had the court room to themselves. . Judge Objects- to Colored Stories Judge Graver passed around A "quiet tip" to the pewspaper reporters that it would be distasteful to the rfourt to have to exclude them from the oourt room for sending colored stories to their papers. The man who carried the message said Lincoln county has enough detrimental advertising a a result of the tarring, The Judge's order to exclude women and children and to curb sensational news- paper reports followed a petition from the Women's Clvlo league of Lincoln county, New Venire Summoned. The first panel ot thirty-four talesmen having been exhausted in securing the twelve men In the box, a new venire ot 100 was summoned during the night and early hours today and was In attendance when court convened. The defendants are asking each venireman If he would consider the separate guilt of each de fendant, although the three are being tried together. Unwillingness to do this results in challenge for cause. The possibility of securing a Jury be. fore night led the prosecution to declare that Miss Chamberlain would take the stand tomorrow and tell her story. Ac cording to Miss Chamberlain three men did the actual work of tarring, while the remainder of the moo looked on. One man held her prostrate, another held the bucket of tar and a third smeared the black mess over Miss Chamberlain's body and limbs. Jury Mar Be Completed Boon, Tho defense by noon bad used half of its twelve challenges, and both sides be gan to hope that a Jury could be ob tallied by late this afternoon. Miss Chamberlln was expected to go on the stand then after a short opening address to the Jury by County Attorney McCan Miss Chambcrlin arrived at the court room early under the Impression that she would be placed upon the stand at once. She appeared greatly chagrined at not being able to do so and remained with her mother screened from obser vatlon In the county attorney's private office.

I doubt that any one man," said Mr. Stanley, "will make up the minds of the American people as to the good or evil of the steel corporation.

ACCUSED OF KILLING HUSBAND Dlographr Tells ot Trip to Curope for Purpos ot Studying; to He come Suitable Wife for Sup. , posed llenefactor. DENVER, Colo., Nov. 17,-Gertrude Gibson Patterson, who will be placed on trial next Monday on the charge of mur dering her husband, Charles A. ratter- son, has written a biographical sketch for the use of her attorney, O. N. Hilton, In which she accuses Emll Strouss, the millionaire clothing manufacturer of Chi cago, of having ruined her life and of having bribed Patterson to marry her. She and Strouss, she avers, lived to gether as man And wife for five years. Excerpts ot this story of love and tragedy, made public today, are charac terised by Attorney Hilton as being as black a record of betrayal as ever Jury listened to. When seen at the jail today Mrs. Pat terson seemed much less ooncerned oVet the fata a Colorado Jury ha In store for her than the effect ber story will have on her mother. -'Oh!" she moaned, "It will breaX my poor mother's heart to learn that I was never married to Emll Strouss nor di vorced from him." The biography read, In part, as fol lows: "When I was 18 years old I went with my sister, Mrs. Farnsham, and her hus band to Chicago. We stopped at the Auditorium hotel, where a friend of my sister Introduced me to Strouss. He was much older than I, for at that time my hair hung In a braid down my back, but he was very kind. He asked me to marry htm, but said that first I must go to school and study. Trip to Paris. 'After many conferences with my peo ple he finally took me to Purls. His in tentions always seemed to be honorable. In that city he provided me with a tutor, paid for my muslo lessons and departed almost immediately. I was very happy and work very hard at my studies, aa I wanted him to b proud of his future wife." Mrs. Patterson says that they cor responded for five months, at the end of which- time, responding to a cable gram from Strouss, she returned to New York and, in company with her supposed benefactor, went Immediately to Culcago, where, the biography states, Mr. Strouss registered . for both of them as "Miss Gibson" and "Mr. Strouss." helr rooms were adjoining. v It was here, Mrs. Patterson declared, Strouss began to renew his promises of marriage, but always ha postponed the wedding day. I was so miserable and unhappy, al though he gave me everything," the narrator exclaimed, "for when I thought I had him persuaded he would put me off again until ons day he sent ma back to Paris. The fall of tha same year he came for me again. This time he told me that he had given out the Information that we were married and that everyone be lieved it. "So we came again to Chicago, where we stopped at the Stratford hotel, In wlrfch Mr. Strouss was financially Inter ested. "For five years I lived with him as his wife. He introduced rue as Mrs. Strouss wherever we went and to his friends. No one ever questioned that I was married to him least of all my peo pleand all that time I begged and pleaded and coaxed him to marry mo. I wanted so nu'ch to be like the other women I knew." Meets Futtersoj. Miss Gibson, as Klie waa then, met ber futuie husband, Charles A. I'atterson, at a skating rink. Thoy became greut friends and, although she told hlin hf-r story, he asked her to beconio bis wife and ex- preab-ed a deulie to' meet Mr. Strouss. "After his talk vlth.

"Questioning II. 13. Martin of the anti Trust league, who opposed any amend ment to the Sherman law, Senator Cum mins referred to the decroe In the to bacco company case authorising the re organisation of four companies and called attention to the announced report of the Deportment of Justice not to Interfere with the reorganization. "I do not believe the organisation of four companies will restore competition, but in the minds of the authorities, It is apparently In harmony with the anti trust law," said Senator Cummins. "In my opinion the anti-trust law will not maintain competition and it ought to be amended and strengthened." Amendments Hugajeated. Senator Cummins referred to a pos sible limitation of the capital stock ot corporations, a deforcing of manufactur ing business from sources of supplies and a separation of business and transporta tion elements as changes In the law would lead to better competition. Mr. Martin said the Anti-trust league of which he Is secretary, proposes to fight the dissolution decree In the Ameri can Tobacco case on the ground that it docs not comply with the anti-trust law. He declared that succeeding officials of the government in the last twenty-one years had failed to enforce the law prop erly. 'Do you claim they betrayed their trust?;' anked Senator Cummins. "That Is strong language," said Mr. Martin, "but in some canes I believe they did." Senator Cummins said that In his opin ion when a certain course had been pur sued over a period of year by puhllo officials It Indicated there was either something essential lacking In the law or that all public officials constituted "a band ot rascals." "It Is hardly conceivable," he said, "that ail of our Judges, attorney generals, presidents and other officials have been In a conspiracy to defeat this law. It would teem that the law could be so amended that questions of doubt would be removed and that public condemna tion would fall on the man who fulled to enforce Its piovHons.'

Connors, indicted for an alleged attempt to dynamite the Hall of Records here a month before the Los Angeles Times wes destroyed In the fall of U10. Counsel fur the McNamaraa likewise are defending the three men and the case Is expected to be a corollary to the McNamara trial. Horton has been the most active thus far In court for the state other than the district attorney himself, and his delega- Ion to try Mahle, Bender and Connor will mean that the state will lose an im portant member of Its staff In the Mc Namara trial.

Bender is president ot the Blacksnrths union here and Connors Is a member of the Bridge and Structural Iron Workeu' local.
