CANNON MEETS O'BRIEN.
Puts on loves for Short Bout — A
[By Telegraph to Th* Tribune.]
Philadelphia. May 28 — On their way back
from Valley Forge, which they visited this
rn<x»n. Speaker Joseph <i Cannon and a
party of Congressmen who are making an au
tomobile trip, stopped at King of Prussia Inn,
where "Jack" O'Brien, the pugilist, is staying.
Mr. Cannon went inside and had several
glasses of punch, and upon being asked if he
would not like to have a "go" with O'Brien,
replied: "Wei!, I'm not Johnson, but I might
try it." Accordingly the two went out into the
roadway and O'Brien showed the Speaker how
to make a few passes. They struck a few light
blows) while Congressmen Wanger and Thomas
yelled: "Knock his head off. "Uncle Joe.'"
Mr. Cannon was lively with his hands, but
slow on his feet "You'll have to be careful of
me Mr. O'Brien." he said, and the pugilist
stopped pressing him.
Speaker Cannon made a humorous spec eh at
Norrtstown, saying that he hunted at Volley
Forge for the thicket where Washington used
to pray. "But I have an idea he used to go
there and swear, too," he added.
in discussing the tariff the Speaker said
Clergymen should pray for a temperature of m
degrees in the shade. in order to hurry the
Senate to pass the tariff bill. Speaking of his
critics he said 'Some people have a habit of
looking at the world through a gimlet boll,"

from persons In high authority that the sudden

The conviction of Darragh follows the first
trial of an automobile operator in this city oa
a criminal charge in connection with the death
of a victim of his machine. The indictment
; against him was found under the amended sec

"The killing of a human being by an act Im
minently dangerous to others, and evincing a
depraved mind, regardless of human life, al
though without a premeditated design, is pun

N" JUROR FOR LESSER VERDICT.
Darragh was indicted for murder in the first
degree. It was learned after the trial that
the jury on their first ballot stood ten for con
viction for manslaughter in the first degree,
one for murder in the first degree and one for
murder in the second decree. The jury was out
one hour and fifty-five minutes, and at no tima
did any of the jurors express a desire for aa
acquittal or for a verdict less serious than that
on which the chauffeur finally was convicted.
James D. McClelland, who made the closinff
argument in Darra^h's behalf, cautioned the
jury not to be Influenced in reaching a verdict
] by the intense public feeling existing against
automobile speeders. He said that every bit
of evidence showed that the Trimble boy would
not have been harmed had he remained in tha
place where Darragh first saw him. The boy
Jumped in front of the machine Just as tha
chauffeur was swerving the car to one side to
avoid him. counsel said, and this circumstanca
of itself, he maintained, eliminated the charga
that Darrasrh poss' ssed a depraved mind, re
gardless of human life. Mr. McClelland pleaded
with the jury not to be prejudiced against tha
prisoner because of his flight after the acci
dent, saying that lse was actuated by the sam»
fear that caused the stampede at Bull Run.
For the prosecution Assistant District Attor
: new Smyth declared that the lave under which
Darragh was bei; g tried was not intended tc»
| be a combination of empty words in the statuta
book. At his request Judge Mu'.queen instruct
ed the .... if Darragh knew-rTrat the body
of the hoy was being carried along on the ma
i chine after the impact when he was first s.:meic
! and that death resulted from injuries subse
quently received, they must decide on a verdict
of murder In the first degree.
PRISONER REALIZES SITUATION.
After the jury had retired Darragh seemed
suddenly to realize the dangerous position ha
was in. and his attitude for the first time ia
his trial snowed traces of melancholy and suf
fering. He was crouching in hi? chair, with
his head bowed down, when the jury filed baclc
into the box and For-man Abraham Levine an
nounced in response to a question from Cleric
Spinney that the Jury had agreed on a verdict.
"We find the defendant guilty of manslaugh
ter in the first degree." said the foreman.
!>,irr - brightened perceptibly aa lie heard
the words that t»!d him that he was not
doomed to the death penalty and answered
cheerfully the questions of the clerk before ha
was taken to the Tombs to await sentence.
RESULT OF "JOT RIDING."
Ingvaard Trimble was the son of Robert T.
Trimble, a lawyer of No. 417 West ll^th street.
On the night of the accident he v. as playing ia
the street -with several other boys, when aa
automobile speeded toward them. According t>
witnesses, the machine was poinsr at a terrific
rate and swerved from the middle of the ?tr?et
directly upon the Trimble hoy. who was standing
near the curb, waiting for it to pass. He wa*
struck in the back and hi* coat caught on th<»
lamp of the machine. He was dragged half a
block before his coat cave way. and he fell under
the wheels. Both his legs were broken, his skuil
was fractured and ho received internal injuries.
The car which had run over him slackened]
pace for a moment and then -pod on at a mor>»
rapid rate than before. There were two men ia
tho machine, but the police had no clew- to th-!r
identity. Finally Charles E. Force, of No. 471
Park avenue, informed the police that his chauf
feur, William Darrash, had disappeared after
bringing hia car back u> the garage in a dam
aged condition. A gvnera! alarm was sent ouc
for the missing chauffeur. He was traced
through several Western cities, nnd finally r.r
rested in Port Arthur. Tex. Ho admitted h?3
identity there, and said that he had run ;>ver
the boy. He waived extradition and was brought
back to New York for trial. Darragh said he
attributed his arrest to a letter he had writfa
to a yourg woman to inform her of his destina
tion, but which bad f:illor into ether hands.
