Trial Lasted Nearly Whole Day anc
Verdict Was Reached in About Twc
Spartanburg. Specia'.-The trial of
Polk Odom for the raurder of H. H
Hembree resulted in the acquittal of
the defendant, and occupied almost the
entire day of court. The jury in the
case was empaneled Frida, after
noon, and at the convening of couri
this morning the case was promptl:
The state submitted four witnesse
and the defense five. An importan
point brought out in the state's testi
mony was the fact that the load o
shot that inflicted the death wound 0
H. H. Hembree came from a cut shell
A portion of the shell was taken ou
of the wound in the thigt if the deac
man, along with the bullets.
The defendant, a young man of abou
30 years. was a calm, expressionless
but interested spectator of all the pro
ceedings today. He is of medium build
with a sparse moustache, black ha:
and eyes, and dressed as the ordinar:
countryman of the northwesternn see
tion of the country. By his side durin
the day sat his father, a man of solid
substantial appearance, with long
wavy black whiskers and coal-blacl
hair and eyes. Directly behind th
prisoner sat his aged mother, neatl:
but unpretentiously dressed, and be
side her. with an infant crooning an
crowing on her knees, was the youn;
wife of Thomas Hembree, for whor
the deceased and his sons were hunt
ing when the tragedy occurred.

WORK OF CONGRESS
The Senate and House Regularly at
Work-What They are Doing.
Mr. Webb's Fight For Free Cotton.
Congressman Webb Tuesday made
a strenuous and all but successful ef
fort to so amend the Philippine tariff
bill as to remove the duty on cotton.
On the first vote, the majority ,ed
up in su.pport of the North Carolina
member, but Mr. Scott, of Kansas,
who was in the chair, rescued the sit
uation for the committee having charge
of the bill by announcing that a sec
ond vote would be taken, owing to the
fact that there had been so much con
fusion in the chamber. The amend
ment was then voted down by the
small majority of 99 to 95, and mo
tion to recommit the bill, made by Mr.
Cooper, ranking minority member of
the ways and means committee, fail
ed to effect any material change in
the Republican majority. When Mr.
Webb was advocating the adoption of
his amendment, Mr. Payne took issue
I with him, whereupon the North Caro
lina member asked the Republican floor
leader if he did not know that remov
al of duty on cotton would aid the
Republican mill owners of Fall River.
Mr. Payne said he did not know that
it would, to which Mr. Webb replied
that it was the duty of the chairman
of the ways and means committee to
know a fact so potent.
Rate Bill to Go Cver.
The Senate Tuesday passed the Mili.
tary Academy appropriation bill and
beaan consideration of the Indian ap
propriation bill. Early in the day, in
response to a question, Mr. Elkins,
chairman of the committee of inter
State commerce, expressed the opinion
that it would be impossible to secure
railroad rate legislation during the
present session of Congress. The Sen
ate took up the isthmian canal bill,
and agreed to meet an hour earlier to,
morrow, in order to advance the bill.
Ex-Senator Higgins finished his pre
liminary statement in opening the de
fense for Judge Swayne. and one wit
ness for Judge Swayne was examined.
Mr. Elkins, in his statement, regard
ing the railway rate bill, said: "No
decision as to an effort to pass the
bill this session has been reached, but
with the limited time at their dis
posal, it would seem that there is very
little prospect of that result before
adjournment, with only ten days of
the session left and with much other
imperative business to be performed.
It would hardly seem probable that
the most important economic question
of the day could be disposed of in so
short a time, and especially in view of
the fact that only one side of the
question has so far been presented to

moment the promises made by the

through the medium of the Democratic
platform, and to add that it is the

dI am wrong, that I am authorized to

ment caused a general burst of laugh
ter, and the incident closed.
When the hearing in the Swayne Im

presented an order for a vote in the

Cleveland, 0., Specal.-Mrs. Chad
wick, when placed on the stand in the
bankruptcy proceedin.s against her
before Referee Remington, she re
fused at first to be sworn. After 'on
siltation with her attorneys she final1y
cnsented to take the oath. She was
then asked to state her name. She
refused to reply to tais or any other
questions that followed.
Mrs. Chadwick sought refuge in her
privileges as an accused person, and
she refused to answer most of the
questions on the ground that what she
said might tend to aid the prosecution
of her criminal cases. Referee Rem
ington found in her favor, although
he insisted, against her counsel's wish
es, in making her give a quasi-expla
nation of her refusal.
"My financial affairs are so closely
allied with the case in the Federal
Court that anything affecting the one
must necessarily affect the other," said
Mrs. Chadwick, and the referee de
clared that that explanation of her
position was as admirably expressed
as it could be.
"What they want is to get posses
sion of our Information," stoutly de
clared Attorney Dawley, on behalf of
Despite Dawley's objections and his
irate declarations that Mrs. Chadwick
was being unjustly and improperly im
posed on Mrs. Chadwick was . forced
to take the stand and be sworn. This
she did very gracefully, smiling pleas
antly and cheerfully, as the referee
administered the oath. But she refus
ed to say that she was Mrs. Cassie L.
Chadwick, and smilingly persisted in -
that course. Referee Remington-vain
ly appealed to her, explained to her,
cajoled her, and almost threatened her.
Mrs. Chadwick was an interested lis
tener to all he had to say, but his
conversation moved her not a jot. Fin
ally Remington grew a little exasper
ated at her cheerful indifference.
- Is this by your advice?" he stern
ly inquired of Dawley.
"I refuse to answer," was Dawley's
reply. "Counsel can take care of him
self," he said significantly. "I am not
under obligations to disclose to any
one, not even the court, the nature of
my professional advice to my client."
Theentire examination was a series -
of wrangles and disputes. Mrs. Chad--J
wick answered a few questions bprt
her answers were remarkably free
from information. Finally the court
and counsel agreed to resume the hear
ing March 13, with the understanding
that Mrs. Chadwick would testify free
ly on .that date if the criminal cases
against her had been disposed of by
Virginia Cadet in Trouble.
