loresi-f his ilanger in having the sale

"Ho counted on the Llnnell girl's bil

world would have called tho death a ouse

"All his early training stood him in

her the poison.
"Richeson In talks with the examining
physicians has never to my knowledge
confounded fact nnd fancy. This indi
cates that he is sane. Dr. Iltlggs nays
that Richeson is instum und cannot dis
tinguish Isitween right und wrong.
"Certainly he can make this distinction,
but the reason he does wrong throughout
his career is Is-cuuse his ambition to ac
complish his end is all that he hus in mind.
His is ii nut ure which is not curled nway
by the Impulse of the moment or that
yields to strong proiensitlcs, for ho starts
out to do a thing and does it,
"Richeson's is-rft-ct physical health
tends to prove that he is not insane. His
IHrfoet composure has kept him from
worry common In other prisoners.
"Dr. llriggs with instruments hus found
that there is u numbness in tlio ptisom-r's

the fourth and llfth fingers. This mutter
will probably be brought out u-i tending
to show that the nervous system has

"I have been Richeson utmost every day

him nothing in ore than un abnormally
selfish man, who fell because it wus with
him 'Any moans to nn i-nd.'"
On tlm other hand Dr, D, D, llrouch,
who whs one of those who attended
Richeson when he mutilated himself und
for some time afterward, is quoted us
saying that Richeson is un iiiMitin man.

MAY HE FA1? BEACHING
First Case in Which a Man Is
Denied Civil IMrrhts Because
of Political Helief.
Sra-itm:, Wash.. May 11. Bitterly de
nounced by Socialists and others through
out tlm Pacilic coast cities tho decision of
Judy; C. II. Hanford of tho United States
District Court of Washington annulling
the citizenship of Leonard Olsaon lie
cause ho is i Socialist to-night had at
tracted more discussion than any ruling
In his decision Judge Hanford said he
annulled Olsson's citizenship papers be
cause he "admitted he H a Socialist, a
frequenter of assemblages of Socialists, in
which ho iwirtlclputes as a speaker, advo
cating a propaganda for radical changes
in the Constitution of tho country, and
bocauso ho entertained those views at
the time he applied for his naturalization
a!x-rs mom than two years ago." )$fM is
probably the first caso In tho history of
the country where n man's citizenship
has bpen cancelled by court procedure
iH-cause of political opinions and if sus
tained by the higher courts may lead, in
the opinion of many able attornoys, to
depriving thousands of Socialists of tho
right of citiU'iishlp.
The llerco storm of criticisms stirred
up In- Judge Hanford's decision was
like that which greeted his rulings of a
year ago when he issued a blanket in
junction prohibiting the people of Rainier
Volley from refusing to tender more than
niiickelfarc wit him the city limits of Seattle
on the Seattle. Ronton nnd Southern cars,
although tho Supremo Court of the State
hud already decided that question In favor
of the people. At that time there was a
request asking Congress to impeach
Judge Hanford lias been on the Federal
liench over since Washington was ad
mitted into the Union. His enemies
say in contests of a public naturo coming
before him he has invariably decided
against the people It -was Judge Hanford
who attempted to block the recall of
former Mayor fiill of Seattle on the ground
that the Council did not include tho cost
of election about to be held in tho regular
budget passed months before. This de-
clrlon of Judge Hanford's was made after
the State court decided in favor of the
SOCIALISTS ANGRY AT JUDGE.

l.vplAVAfoi.is, Ind., May It. Hitter de
mmciaticn of Judge C. II. Hanford, Federal
Judge of th Wasliington district, was
heard to-night from the majority of the
delegates gathered hoie for the opening
of the national convention of tho Socialist
party to-morrow. The action of tho jurist
in cancelling the citizenship papers of
Leonard Olsson because he hail openly
declared himself in ravor of fundamental
socialistio doctrines was accepted by
the rank and (lie as the oK-n!ng gun in
a general campaign against socialism
in America. Washington delegates who
an- here insisted that this action of the
Federal Judge was the beginning of a
struggle to disfrunchlso the foreign born
citi.-ns of the Paclflo slope because of
th- growing strength of socialism there.
The matter will be taken up on the floor
of the convention m-xt week. The fact i
that ludge unmortt m ins decision placed
restrictions upon naturalization was al
leged by the socialist leaders to be a vio
lation of constitutional privilege which
if carried out as tar ns tho text of the de
cision seemed to indicate would mean
the revocation of the naturalization
paers of ever)' one who believes in direct
legislation of any nature.
Job Iiarrinian of Ijs Angeles, Congress
man Victor llerger, William D. Haywood,
Jolu Spurgo, Morris Hillquit and all
of the other leaders in the city were open
in their denunciation nnd in their declar
ation that the decision of the Federal
Judge must bo npxialed at any cost.
It was Isiliovcd that a motion will lie
made ut Monthly's session of tho con
vention to pledge the national Socialist
organization to finance tho legal methods
necessary to detortnlno the constitution
ality of Judge Hanford's decision. The
first session of the committee will be held
in Tomlinson Hull at 10 A. M. to-morrow.
It will be devoted toorgaittaution.and real
business of tho gathering will not begin
Tlio question of n national ticket has

the decision of how far the platform shall
go in indorsing industrial unionism.

PLEAS FOR CONSTITUTION'
President and the Chief Justice
Protest Against Change
PniNCETON, N. J. May ll.-John Grier
Hlbben was inaugurated president of
Princeton University to-day with cere
monies that had a significance for the
nation as well as for the institution it
self. For the nation there were the forceful
pleas of the President of the United States
and of tho Chief Justice of tho United
States Supreme Court, Edward D. White,
that tho country continue to accept I hi
Constitution as its basis of governmom
and not permit itself to be beguiled nwa r
from the Institutions of the fathers lv
temporary passions or demagogic a.
For the university there was the point
blank declaration of the new president
of an adherence to the ancient academio
idea of a general intellectual develop
ment for the student before he shall bo
permitted to specialize on vocational
Five thousand persons cheered tho
words of the distinguished heads of tlio
great coordinate branches of govern
ment and the declaration of tho new heud
of the institution. The representative
of 131 Institutions of learning in thU
country, tho holders of high dogrees
from more than 100 universities in Europe
nnd the United States, public men irre
spective of party, old Princeton men,
younger grnds. still younger under
grads, wives, mothers, sisters and sweet
hearts, caught by the forceOf the occasion,
made the old trees in front of Nnsvsti
Hall quiver with their applause, and later
in the gymnasium, when it was all re
affirmed, tho Tiger yells shook the rafters
with more emphasis.
To Honor Mrs, Cleveland.
It may bo added that there wus no
diminution of the cheering when the
briefer references r other speakem cul
minated in a glowing tribute to Orover
Cleveland by Chief Justice White, nor
did It show signs of ceasing when Presi
dent Taft told the Princeton alumni
that about as good a thing as they could
do was to present nn oil portrait of Mr.
Cleveland to tho White Hotiso to hang
alongside of those of Martha Washington
Dolly Madison and tlio other great women
whose common sense nnd tact did so much
to make bygone administrations famous.
The alumni said afterward that the por
trait would bo hanging In Washington
In-fore many months hud passed,
With nil the declaration and tho words,
it was a most tactful day. No matter
whether every lip framed certain names
from ti ,e to time, no names were men
tioned. The fact that Woodrow Wilson,
former president of tho university,
had boon inclined to tho "elective" idea
of college training, which is opposed to
meeting at tho Reform Club in New Vork
ItiMiseielt Not Mentioned.
When President Taft and the Chief
Justice, one a Republican and tho other
a Democrat, wero calling upon tho coun
try to remain true to the principles upon
which the nation was founded, and say
ing things ubout demagogio uttorancw,
everybody had nn idea that somebody
had tho recall of Judges und such things
In their minds, but neither man said it;
nor was tho naino of tho distinguished
citizen who is advocating theso things
mentioned. As a mutter of fuel, it wad
eaid that Mr. Roosevelt was not Invited.
Not even in the senior songs on the
steps of old Nassau to-night wero names
mentioned, although an imaginative poi
son might make deductions from such as
Itihbon, .lack million.
He's the man that's on the square
million, Jack llihben,
In the presidential chair,
lllliben, Jack Ribbon;
May the White House never cull,
For he Is meant for president
Of Prlnceton-that's all.
It is safe to sny that few of the eleven
priieldents of Princeton University since
its founding have gone into office with
tho popularity of John Grier Ilililien,
Only he Is nnd has been "Jack" to the
undergraduates ever since he wi nt thorn
as an instructor back in 1MU.
Hlbben the Feat are,
It did not need specially even the Presi
dent of tho United States or tho Chief
Justice or the Justices of tlm New Jersey
courts or other dlstingusihcd men to
