as ne t.njj remember he had never told anybody
the building was unsafe. tuls point witness
was closely questioned by Mr. Preston and by
the Pench. Mr. Pickerton stated that witness
had told himself and some other gentleman that
he was sure the building was unsafe and had
told Father Larkin so. If he said so he was so
excited at the time he did not remember any
thing about it. Tried a level on the wall some
hours ufter the rod broke on Wednesday and
j found it perfectly upright.
i Charles James Wall was then examined. Was
at the school on the Thursday before the accident,
Wus told of the broken rod and that it had been
repaired ; lather Lurkiu told him he promised
iist. o( tht, hM to the firemen for a ball or
something of the sort and wanted to be certain
that everything was safe. Made a cursory ex-
aminatiou. At Father Larkin's suggestion went
to find Chisholm as he had worked on the build-
in!?. Thev went together at 7 a. m.. on Fridav
to the school, and arranged to put up six piecesj.
by M at once, and discussed the best manner of
! mnineutly strengthening the' building. All
that was decided upon then was what should be
done to make it safe for that day. Noticed that

as his client regretted the circumstances to which
they had deposed. The testimony of the other
group touched upon the mode of construction of
the building, the way in which its fall mav be
accounted for and the connection of Father Lar-
kin with the same. The main point underlying
the case was the sinter of Father Larkin whe'ther

Larkin, which would lead him to know or believe i
that he put any one to risk by lending them the !

had been constantly in it, in pursuance of his

the evidence of Wall that the day bcimv :i:- j
building was not plumb, this was enough
warn the defendant and to warrant hiscomm:;t..i.
Mr. Dole, with the leave of the Bench, re
ferred to one point that had been omilied in his :
learned colleague's addresss, It is said that the
adiUtional supports ordered on Friday are
evidence that the building was known to be nu-
safe. But the testimony is not to that t-fleet;
simplv that it was necessary to meet the strain !
that would come on the building from a crowd ;
of dancers. Defendant had no warning that the j
place would be dangerous during the afternoon.!
Judge Bickerton said that he had allowed the j
testimony to run through his mind, not only as i
given m that Court, out also mat taKen ciuring
the previous enquiry, ihe hrst point he had
decided in his own mind was that Father Larkin
had authority and control over that building.
Now, it was very evident that that building had
been in a dangerous condition since the time
that it was finished. By the evidence of Hornby
it appeared that it was necessary to put up
braces the very day it was finished.
Father Larkin here obtained leave to make a
statement as follows : No one had even told
i ,: !
him that the place was unsafe. On his oath ho

Any one would suppose that the big drum and j

motives, aud because they wished to honor their i
chief, he had sought leave from the Bishop for 1
the firemen to have the use of the hall
Judge Bickerton continued: The oirils
to do wnat a man oi intelligence migni in- ex
pected to do became in such a case a criminal j
necdect. A man was supposed to use his com- i
i mou sense in what he did. When iron rods j
broke in a building, were repaired, and then
broke again, there was warning ot danger. Al;u
fact that there was need to put the props up

loathe and abhor from the depths of my inmost
being. I now openly avow, with all the earnest
ness0 of righteous indignation, that during no
part of my life did I favor Free Love even
tacitly. With the feelings that should actuate
everv sanctified wife and mother of a family, I
regarded it with loathing when once I got a
slight idea of its character and the deep infamy
to which it led. And such is my state of feeling
at the present time. I only wish that this honest,
unreserved declaration, which, through your
courtesy I am enabled to make, would exonerate
me from any degree of responsibility in the
matter, silence serpent tongues, and clear my
reputation from the slur which ignorant, un
thoughtful, or vindictive persons have cast upon
it, reckless of the result."
