Dear Senator: I have examined the list of lands belonging to the Export Oil and Pipe

the oil fields upon which oil has not already been developed in paying quantities The of

Address of, Counsel for the Alleged
Slayer of His Sister.
DONE WITH DEFENDANT'S PISTOL
Theory of the Defense Is That the
Crime Was Hot the Work of
I": ' Skilled Burglars.
Plttsfield, Mass., July 24.—The court
house in which the Fosburgh manslaughter
trial is proceeding was besieged fully an
hour before the opening of to-day's ses
sion bjr* crowds of spectators. Attorney
Joyner resumed his address by telling
why the Fosburghs kept firearms in the
house. He said:
We know, and the government does not
know, that it wa» the defendant's pistol
which shot his sister. The firm of R. L.
Fosburgh & Son had many men in its employ,
the pay. roll amounting to some $6,000 weekly.
The men were non-English-speaking and
were paid In money at the office of the com
pany. Mr. Fosburgh, Sr., would take money
from the bank to the office in an electric car.
The men knew this, and because of the risk
the chief of police had once remarked that if
any men needed a pistol they (the Fosburghs)
did. For this reason the defendant got one.
Mr. Fosburgh, the defendant, and his wife
occupied the kitchen bedroom, but they die
covered a disagreeable odor in the sink and
movud to another room, leaving some wear
ing apparel and a pistol in the bureau.
Robbery and revenge might have been the
motives of the burglars. They were young,
active, alight men, else they could not have
gotten out of the house through the opening
left by the screen. The defense intend to
show that the soiled clothing, pillow casej,
•tc, were thrown by the family into the bas
ket in the carriage-house. The theory of the
defense is that the crime was not the per
formance of skilled burglars, that the stock

Cancer, ■ Catarrh, Scrofula,* Rheumatism, Contagious Blood Poison, etc. ; the only

over shoes to muffle the sound of steps; that
the tracks seen were made by the men when
they left the house, and that they intended to
steal anything they could lay hands on.
Men were seen running down Benedict
street after the tragedy, and It is the theory
of the defense that they doubled on their trail
and when the posse came along joined in the
pursuit, thus diverting suspicion from them
selves. The furniture in the house was cheap
and easily broken, and it.was broken in the
struggle in the back room. There was only a
narrow space between the bed and the bu
reau, and the defense claims that the bureau
was twisted around during the fray. The
defense will" show that the family has done
its utmost to bring to justice the men who
entered the house; and that whatever may be
the theory, Miss May was a woman without
an enemy. In her home and in her church
life she won the affection of all who knew
her. She was her brother's companion, her
mother's idol and to the younger members
of the family she was ever helpful. There
was no estrangement between any members
of the family.
The witnesses for the defense, includ
ing neighbors, members of the Fosburgh
family and Miss Bertha Sheldon, were
sworn in a group.
Fred W. Lund, paymaster for the Fos
burghs, who boards at the Shepardson.
house, which is 250 feet from the .Fos
burgh home, testified that on the night of
the shooting he was awakened by Mr.
Shepardson, who told him there was
trouble at the Fosburgh home. Witness
ran there and saw Robert L. Fosburgh
from whom he learned that May Fosburgh
Witness went to his office to call a doc
tor. There he found James Fosburgh
trying to get a physician. He told of see
ing the body of May Fosburgh upon his
retrn to the house. While upstairs he
noticed that the end of the dresser in
the kitchen bedroom was pulled out from
the wall about one foot. This was the
first time in the trial that evidence was
introduced to show that the bureau was
pulled away from the wall. Going to
the cellar, he found the electric light
turned oa at the switch near the dining,
room window. He found imprints four feet
from the balcony, and footprints in the
dirt left side of the road. Witness de
scribed the search he made with the state
officers, telling of the dust on the cellar
window that had been dusturbed, of the
broken mortar and of the screen under the
window. Mr. Lund said he saw the defend
ant's pistol at the office payday. He
never Baw the elder Fosburgh with a pis
tol. He was shown the shoe which had
been found around the Fosburgh house
and said he never saw the defendant or
the defendant's father wearing it or one
The Elder Foibnrsh Testifies
Rovert T. Fosburg, father of the de
fendant, was called. He began by de
scribing the movements of his family
from the time they came to Pittsfleld un
til the day of the shooting. The defend
ant and his wife came to live with the
witness about July 1. He said he em
ployed about 270 men in his business as a
contractor. They were mostly Italians
and came from New York. Witness de
scribed the day previous to the tragedy.
Mrs. R. L. Fosburgh had returned Satur
day from St. Louis, where she had been
for cix weeks on account of the illness of
her father. He spoke of Miss Sheldon as
on a visit to his house, having been there
for two or three weeks.
Mr. Fosburgh proceeded to relate the
happenings of Sunday, telling how they
went to church, how they had luncheon,
how they sat upon the porch in the after
noon reading. During the afternoon he
took a short rest. At 5 o'clock the de
fendant and his wife went for a drive,
taking Mrs. Robert L. Fosburg to the
works and returning about 7 o'clock.
After supper they all sat upon the porch
until dark and then they passed into the
During the recital of this testimony Mr.
Fosburgh trembled and there were tears in
his eyes. He said that on the first night
of Mrs. Fosburg's return she first slept
in the vacant room. The witness slept
in his own room. He detected an odor
coming from the sink; so that he did not
sleep there the next night. Witness then
began to tell of the shooting. He said
he was awakened by his wife; that he
asked her what the trouble was. He was
at that time lying upon his right side, but
he turned to his left and saw what ap
peared to be a light moving in the hall
way. He raised himself upon his left el
bow and two men walked into the room
towards his bed, one of them holding a
revolver in his left hand and pointing it
toward the face of the witness.
Mr. Fosburgh sprang up, scouting, and
got his feet upon the floor. He struck
the man on the arm and knocked the re
volver out o fhis grasp. Then he, him
self, was struck with a sandbag and he
recalsl nothing further till he got up and
went to the kitchen bedroom, where he
saw someone standing by the bedroom
looking out. The next thing he remem
bers that he heard Beatrice cry: "Oh,
mamma! look at May! She is hurt!" He
went back and saw his daughter on the
floor, her mother by the side and James
leaning over her head. Robert, the de
fendant, came into the room and fell down.
Beatrice brought some water and the wit
ness threw it in hie son's face. The wit
ness then ran to the front window and
cried: "Police! Murder! Help! We
want help!" Mrs. Plumb came to her win
dow to inquire if anything was wrong.
He told her that burglars had been in the
house and had shot May. He then ran
back to Mrs. Fosburgh and to where May
was lying. He thought he went to the
window a second time and then to the first
floor, where he saw Lund and Shepardson
coming. Then he went upstairs. He did
not know that he was hurt until attention
was called to his left eye, which, was en
tirely closed, and the side of his face,
which was black. He did not say any
thing to the family about his wounds. He
put on the same coat, that he was now
Found a Hat.
Beatrice found a hat in his room. Wit
ness was shown a hat, but he did not
think it was the same Beatrice kad
brought. He was shown a revolver, but
could not identify it. Asked if he ever
saw the hat Beatrice found before on the
night of the shooting, he answered no.
After he dressed he went down stairs with
his wife. The first that the witness saw
of the officers, Flynn and White were in
the kitchen bedroom. Flynn had discov
ered the shoe and he asked witness and
the defendant if it belonged to anybody
in the house. The shoe was handed to
Mr. Fosburgh. He said that he thought
that it was the same shoe. He never had
seen the shoe before the night of the
shooting. He concluded by saying that
the third time he saw th eshoe it was wet
on the bottom and very muddy. Asked
if he had been in New York city July 5,
1900, Mr. Fosburgh said he was not, but
was in Pittsfleld. He said:
"The family left the house practically
at the same time when they left with the
funeral for the cemetery. Mrs. Fosburgh
and the others never went back. Esther,
who was not subjected to such a terrible
ordeal as the rest, went back and got
some of her things. Subsequently the
family went to the hotel, where they have
remained ever since."
On the subject of what has been done
to detect the burglars, Mr. Fosburgh
spoke of employing four detectives. He
offered a reward of $1,500 for the arrest
of the men, and that offer still holds.
He remembered that the city also offered
"Do you know of an offer of a reward
through Police Chief Nicholson?"

MATTER OF FRIARS
Philippine Catholic Authorities Not
to Have the Final Say.
WO AFTER DR. WAYLAND HOYT
Latter Called Him Heathen and
Hypocrite and Receives a Warm
Blast in Return.
From The Journal Bureau, Room 45, Fort
Washington, ; July 24.—An Associated
Press . dispatch form Manila announces
that the Roman Catholic authorities there
say they "have no intention of withdraw
ing the friars from the Philippine
islands." Unfortunately for that state
ment, it is not the understanding here
that the Roman Catholic authorities at
Manila are to have the final: word on
this question. They have been '' friendly
to the friars from the beginning; and on
this account, when the troubles between
the friars and the people broke out and
threatened to. become serious, an Ameri
can prelate, Archbishop Chapelle, was del
egated . by the pope to go to Manila and
assume full charge of the negotiations.
This prelate recently visited Rome, where,
in company with Cardinal Gibbons, he
gave the holy father all' the information
in his possession regarding the question.
There was a full consultation and inter
change of opinions, and it is announced
with authority that a decision has been
reached which will be satisfactory to the
church as a whole and to the McKinley
administration. . :.. , '.. : ■.-.
This government is, of course, deeply
interested in the friar question, for it is
anxious to restore seace and Qutet to
the islands at an early day. For obvious
reasons, however, it could not proceed
officially with a question involving pri
marily the church and its properties,
where the friars were on one side and the
Catholic population of the islands on the
other. It was a dispute within the church,
and this government has * been anxious
from the start to have the church author
ities settle it. That is why Cardinal
Gibbons went to Rome at this particular
time; that is way Archbishop Chapelle
met him there. The American government
has been in close touch with the negotia
tions, and I understand has been advised
that the pope is inclined to make an or
der settling the question to the mutual
satisfaction of all concerned and their
ultimate good. That is all that the Amer
ican administration can ask. It has
enough business of an important char
acter on its hands in the Philippines,
without desiring to become mixed up in
a dispute between churchmen regarding
the title to property. The chuch author
ities in the Philippines may not relish
the pope's order when it shall be made
public, but eventually they will be com
pelled to submit to it, for it is the un
derstanding that the pope is to have the
strong arm of this government to as
sist him in compelling respect for it.
Wn -vn. Hoyt.
Two Sundays ago Rev. Dr. Wayland
Hoyt, of Philadelphia, one time pastor of
the First -Baptist church in Minneapolis,
preached a sermon, which was reported in
the eastern press, severely criticising
Minister Wu Ting-fang's address several
months ago before the New York Ethical
Culture society. It was a biting attack,
and evidently the Chinese minister did not
sit well under it. Last Sunday he deliv
ered an address at Atlantic City to 3,000
Hebrews, on the occasion of the annual
meeting of th« Jewish Chatauqua. He got
after Dr. Hoyt rough shod during the ad
dress, and said:
Lately some clergyman in Philadelphia has
denounced me from the pulpit; he went out
of his way and denounced me as a heathen
and said some nasty things, that I was not
sincere; that I was openly friendly to you,
but really and truly and secretly in my heart
I was hostile to all Americans. I don't know
how he came to know my inner jeart. And
that is the sort of Christians you have in
this country. He was a Christian, he was a
clergyman, and every Sunday he preaches to
people, but I am afraid he does not act up
to what he preaches. This is evident.
He slandered me from the pulpit; he says
I am a heathen. Well, that is all right. He
says I am a hypocrite; I am hostile, op
posed to your people coming to China; that
1 am not sincere, and it is not my belief
what I say openly. How did he know it?
Isn't that malice? Isn't that slander? He
has never contradicted that in the paper—the
report of his sermon. It is unusual to report
a sermon In the paper, bo therefore it must
have been furnished by his authority, and
since it has not been contradicted I take it
to be true. He comes and slanders me from
the pulpit. la that the act of a good Chris
tian? Would a good Jew do that? No, of

Milk in Congrer Cocoanut.
The McKinley administration was quite
willing to lose Minister Conger, but the
"state of lowa wouldn't have it so. Several
weeks ago it became evident here that
Mr. Conger could not secure the guberna
torial nomination at the hands of his
party, and his return to China has sine©
that time been a foregone conclusion. The
administration would gladly have given
him the nomination for governor and
then filled his place in China with a man
more adapted to difficult diplomatic work,
but Mr. Cummins stood in the way. The
result will be that Conger will possibly re
main at Peking during the remainder of
the McKinley term, unless, as is barely
possible, Chinese complications again be
come so serious as again to demonstrate
his inability to cope with them, in which
event the president may be relied upon to
remove him without ceremony.
Mr. Conger is a high toned, well mean
ing and rather accomplished man, and in a
field adapted to his capacities would make
a great success. Difficult diplomacy, how
ever, Is not that field.
Scientists at Denver.
Washington is much interested at pres
ent in the annual convention of the Amer
ican Association for the Advancement of
Science, which is to meet August 24, in
Denver. Washington has a larger number
of members of this association than any
! other American city, because it is the
country's scientific center. This society is
the oldest and one of the .most important
ever organized in the United States, and
under ite direction the large majority of
the important scientific discoveries and in
vestigations of the past fifty years have
been made. Its membership roll of 2,700
embraces practically every scientist of
note in the land, and the society's occa
sional publications are of the widest in
terest and importance. During the war
the meetings of the society were interrupt
ed, so the fiftieth annual convention this
year does not quite do justice to its age.
Never before has a meeting been held
so far west as Denver. Under a new pol
icy regarding places of meetings, it is
quite likely that for several years the
association will meet in western cities I
which are near important geological and
botanical fields where investigations have
been conducted with so much profit. About
a thousand delegates are usually in at
tendance. It is quite possible that Min
neapolis, which is now reviving her one
time interest in national conventions, may
secure the convention for next year with
a little effort.

of the Manilla National bank of Manilla,

of Prescott, lowa, was also authorized to
op.en its doors for business, with a cap
ital of $25,000 and Jamese C. Allen as
president and Theodore F. King as cash
ier. The controller also approved the
National Park bank of New York, as a re
serve agent for the Northfield National
bank of Northfleld, Minn.
Fire departments all over the country
will be interested in knowing that the
department in this city has at last de
cided to provide its chief and his as
sistants with automobiles. The vehicles,
five in number, are now being built in
New York, and will be ready for delivery
by autumn. A vehicle similar to the ones
being built 'for Washington was recently
given a series of severe tests in Hartford,
Conn., with such good results that it
was purchased by that city. San Fran
cisco has also ordered autos for its chief

Third of tbe Trial Races in Canada
Chicago, July 24.—Despite threatening
weathtr in the early forenoon, the yachts
engaged in the trial races for the defender
of the Canada's cup had good weather and
a fairly stiff breeze when they began their
preliminary work shortly before noon to
day. There was a heavy pall of haze over
the water which obscured the boats when
they got a short distance from shore, but
the water was smooth. The committee set
a straight-away course, nine miles and re
turn, and friends of the Milwaukee, win
ner of yesterday's race, were confident the
Wisconsin craft would carry off the honors
for the third time.

gave a dinner the same evening for Miss Gil
fillan end her suest.
This evening the dancers will be entertained
*t the regular Ice Yacht party and at the
midweek hop at Lake Park Hotel.
As the crowd which tripped gayly around
the ballroom of Hotel St. Louis last night
at the informal hop was by no means a small
one, it is an entirely fair assumption that the
dancing proclivities of a certain proportion
of lake young people cannot be melted by any
temperature. The crowd on the verandas, on
the grass and under the trees of the grove,
however, was the larger. A little card play
ing and parlor music is being kept up by a
few of the crowd of St. Louis guests, but
most of them are in a semisomnolent condi
tion on these days so long as daylight lasts,
and refuse to think of social animation until
the heat abates.
Boating is the one thing that has a univer
sal appeal, and it has become a very general

there are no bathing facilities to the Excel
sior bathing beach, the steamers running in
there with parties several times a day.
Last night all of the boats were out and
well filled with people seeking a cooling
breeze. The guests of Lake Park were taken
out on the Victor by Manager and Mrs. Clark,
and the tour of both upper and lower lake
was made. The orchestra was taken along
and played an excellent program, and also

The Fanny L. had an accident on Saturday
evening, breaking her shaft squarely in two
when she was approaching the dock at Hotel
St. Louis with a big hop night crowd on
board. The break was due to a defect in
the casting and not to the handling of the
boat. Workmen have been busy on the ma
chinery all the week and expect to complete
th© repair* to-day.

electric lighting plant.
There is a degree of carelessness exhibited
by the owners of some of the small crafts ou

ly several narrow escapes from boats of this
kind being run down by the larger steamers,
accidents which seemed to have been averted
by a special providence that watches over
this kind of idiots.
