NEW YORK, Dec. 13. Lillian Graham

. Mokes ot Critically H'.
Yesterday's reports, It la now learned,
rather exaggerated the gravity of Mr.
Ktokea' condition. While his recovery Is
slow, It was said today that he was In
no Immediate danger.
Before the prosecution began Its sum
ming up today, Attorney Moore for the
defense was permitted to aupplement his
argument of'yesterday by briefly calling
the Jury's attention to the fact that lf
the holes In Stoke's coat and hat were,
really bullet holes, more shots must have
been fired than tho six accounted for.
rive of these bullets lodged in the wall
and one In Stoke'B leg- Where he asked,
were the rest?
Prosecutor la Caustic.
When Assistant District Attorney Buck
jier began hl speech to the Jury Mrf
Stoke's pretty young wife sat near the
Judge's desk and Miss Graham and Miss
Conrad at their attorney's table.
The prosecutor urged the Jurors not to
consider Stokes' character. He pleaded
vlth them to forget sympathy and con
aider only the argument of self-defense.
Speaking of the relations between Stokes
and Miss Graham, he said scornfully:
"And they have the hardihood to call
that love. It's not love. It's lust on the
part of Stokes and lucre on the part of
Lillian Graham."
Mr. Bruckner did not spare Stokes. . He
referred to the sick millionaire as a
"cool, calculating rogue who -always hud
been strong and was cautons."
Miss Graham covered her face with her
hands and the tears tickled betweent her
loved fingers. .
Money tbe Motive.
"The principal motive of the final act,"
continued Mr. Buekner, "Is money-
money money."
When Miss Conrad came on the scene,
lie said, there wasn't to bo any more
"namby-pamby . business."-.

met." he said of the younger defendant.

Federal Employes

ernment employes should receive ade

to contribute t an old age retirement
fund was the principal suggestion In the
report of the special eommlttee on super
annuation made today to the annual
meeting of the National Civil Service Re
form league In session here. The com
mittee reported that "if the salaries of
the government's civil employes are ade
quate as compared with salaries for sim
ilar employment outside the public serv
ice, so that the employes can properly
be expected, as ordinarily prudent men,
to lay by a sufficient amount year by
year to provide for their own old age,
it is no hardship that the government
should compel them to make such pro
vision, and K is neither reasonable nor
does it tend toward personal thrift and
economy for the government to add to
such salary a pension for life at great
expense to the taxpayers."

Harvard university, was re-elected presi
dent ot the league. All the other offi

Their verdict was for Mrs. Mary Fur

None of the Jurors would talk of what ts
said to be an unprecedented stand. When

the discussion of the case. One, Mrs. H

her husband If he paid a fine, whh-h she

the Jurors hold out much longer.
"I would rather have my husband go

Member of Tariff Commission Talks
to the Wool Growers.
lix. Governor Kooning of Idlta
Walters Are Tipped Mora for
nMrnl Than the Prodacer
Receive for It.
James IV Wing of Ohio, hiemOer of the
tariff commission, declared to JW) wool
growers at luncheon at the Commercial
club at noon, that much of the high cost
of living was due to the fact that Ameri
cans refused to wtar last year's cluthos
this year. He further insisted that the
profits of the farmers were "mighty
small and due chiefly lo the Increased
valuation of the land and not to the price
obtained for their products."
The tariff commission, said Mr. Wing,
was not influenced by nny other desire
than to arrive at the truth. They have
received no Instructions to pursue any
other than a Just course. Concluding tils
address he praised President Taft, saying
tbat "he will some duy be declared by
the American people tho generous, blg
hralned, far-sighted soul that he Is."
President Taft, lie said, Is Inspired by no
other mottlve than to be of service to
his countrymen.
Referring to the mission of the tariff
board Mr. Wing pointed out tha difficul
ties In securing the truth, although he
had found very few who wilfully deceived
them during their inquiries. Members of
the board have been making Investiga
tions In several foreign countries and In
neighboring American states and have se
cured a vast amount qf data. This, he
contended, would be used with no view
lo political effect, but simply to sc-curo
tariff revisions which should benofit tha
entire country.
Good In Tells of Idaho.
Kx-Governor Gooding of Idaho pointed
out that millions of dollars were being
spent in. his state each year for Improve
ments and that some of the most gigantic
undertaking of modern times were planned
and even now were being executed.
Continuing the discussion of the high
cost of living, ex-Governor Gooding said
the desertion of 28,400 farms In the east
within the lust ten years could have been
prevented If the live stock Industry had
not languished. Prof. Hmlth, of the uni
versity state farm, was praised for the
work he was doing, as were all the men
engaged In advancing the stock raising
Industry. "And congress," he continued,
"came within one vole of destroying the
life of the stock-raising Industry In this
country when tho provision In the farm
ers' free bill was struck out."
Most Protect Markets.
"Our markets," continued the ex-governor,
"must be protected. They are the
best markets in the world and that Is why
there Is such an effort to open them to
foreign trade. The cost of production
here is greater than In any other nation
on earth and e ought to ba proud ot It
We must keep our markets protected and
our people employed, for when they are
not employed one of the most dangerous
conditions will confront us." The work
of tho tariff commission was endorsed as
absolutely right."
"Kthcdule K is not right," said ex-Gov
ernor Good Ing. "It isn't fair, it isn't
honest and it ought to be revised." Wu
cannot compete with foreign markets,
because labor is so much cheaper. He
maintained that Mr. Wing was right In
his assertion that the pioducers were re
ceiving none too high a price for their
products. "You can't go into a hotel
but what you will tip the waiter more
for your meal than the farmer received
for the things you eat."

Magnus Brown, president of the Minne
sota Wool Growers' association. In an ad
dress before the national association yes
terday morning.
"Designing people have long cultivated
the Idea that the tariff Is responsible for
the high cost of clothing and It haa come
to a point where we must show consum
ers that It Is not," said Mr. Brown. "Let
us manufacture goods, giving the grower
and the faotory a fair profit and sell
the finished article at a price which will
show consumers what the middlemen are
now making on cloth and clothmg. Let
us give them all wool goods. They are
sick and tired of the stuff they have

A. F, Potter of Washington, O. C, as
sociate forester of the L'nltod Stales, as
sured the sheepmen that the forestry
bureau seeks to regulate and not pro-'
hlblt the grating of sheep In. national
forests; that where It Is compelled to cut
down the number of sheep In one forest,
It increases the number in another which
haa more feed; that the aggregate grat
ing rapacity of the forests Is being In
creased, rather than diminished. Grailng
by sheep Is a protection for standing
timber against, fire, he said, and ' the
bureau Is now trying to induce flockmae
ters t6' stock tha forests ot northern
Idshe- But when tha timber has been'
cut the sheep must be kept eft until tha
young trees get a good start.
The problem to be solved by tha bureau,
ha said, presents three phases; First,
die restoration ot depleted ranges to tnelr
normal productivity; second, tha develop
ment of unused ranges, and third, the
gradual Increase ot the carrying powJt
of tha ranges through the discovery of
Improved methods of handling stock and
growing the forage crop.
F. J. Hagenbarth of Spencer, Idaho,
told Mr. Potter that the sheepmen didn't
want to be allowed in the forest on suf
franca at the whims of the present suc
cessors of the bureau officials; they
wanted their rights to be written Into the
forestry laws. Mr. Potter replied that he
was In hearty accord with the Idea, but
It was up to the sheepmen to decide
whether the time was opportune for a
change in the laws.
