the packing combinations may be

LARGE SUM IS NEEDED,
The nccessslty of raising1 $5,0(10,000 for
the purpose of putting this plan into
operation was ever kept before the con

scriptions toward this end will be taken
up in each State Immediately. The plan
having received the unanimous indorse
ment of the convention those directing
it are determined to carry It through to
success and no effort will be left unmude
to accomplish this end. The expression
of those who spoke In behalf of this
scheme was that it offered the only so

the Industry and the sole means of re
storing prices to the producer.

i JACK SHOGKLEY
Double Murderer Arraigned
and'Held Without Bail.
PLACE0 IN THE COUNTY JAIL
Scants of Interest at the Pre-
Criminal Is Very Bitter Against
Prothero, Who Informed on Him
What He Says of Himself.
"Not guilty" was the plea made by
J. M. Shocklcy, the self-confessed mur
derer of ' Motorman Gleason and Con
ductor Brighton, to the two complaints
charging him with murder In the first
degree upon his preliminary arraign
ment before City Judge Dichl yester
day afternoon. The defendant has
waived his right to a preliminary hear
ing and will go to trial Tor his crime
: in the District court. He will be ar
raigned before District Judge Morse at
' 10 o'clock this morning.
BIG CROWD ON HAND.
The hearing of Shocklcy yesterday
had been set for o'clock in the clty
and county building, but owing to the
detention or Judge Dichl at the Police
court the case was not called until
nearly an hour later. About half-past
2 o'clock the news spread about the
joint building that thu prisoner was to
be brought there, and a large crowd
gathered about to await the proceed
ings. At precisely five minutes before
3 o'clock a carriage drove up to the
north entrance of the building and
stopped before the door. Chief of Po
lice Lynch and Capt. Burbldce stepped
out with' Shocklcy and Prothero The
two mvn wore handcuffed together, Ujc
manacles on Shockley's .left and Pro
thero's right wrists. Both men were
a trifie pale, and Shocklcy paid no at
tention whatever to the crowd assem-
bled nor to Prothero. He followed Chief
Lynch into the building and direct to
Judge Tanner's courtroom, Prothero
keeping1 up nt his side.
In the courtroom the men were un
manncled and Prothero sat down in the
clerk's chair. Shocklcy stepped over to
a table where his attorneys, E. A. Wil
son and H. A. Sherman, were sitting,
and shook hands with both men. lie
then removed his rubbers und sat down
at the end of the table The courtroom
was soon filled with a curious crowd,
consisting mostly of employees in th
offices of the building. A still larger
crowd, it is said, was congregated at
the lime before the police station,
where it was generally supposed the
prisoner would be brought. Two young
women came into the courtroom, but
after satisfying themselves with a
scrutiny of Shocklcy left In a few m
DESCRIPTION OF THE MAN.
Shockley talked earnestly with his
attorneys and. although not oblivious
to his surroundings, seemed exception
ally self-possessed and paid little notice
to those about him. Of all others he
paid least attention to Prothero. scarce
ly deigning to give him a look. The
prisoner Is a lnrge, well-built, athletic
looking young man. He has coal black
hair and dark eyes, with a sharp, pene
trating gaze. Ills chin ls square and
strong and his nose largo a-cl aquiline.
A crook in the nose whlchdefiects the
greater portion of the feature to the
right mars the beauty of a strong and
striking face. He fiat with his back to
the audience and now and then raised
his left hand to smooth his well
brushed hair. Aside from having a de
termined face, tin countenance of the
prisoner does not denote the character
istics of the professional crook, but ls,
on the whole, rather prepossessing than
otherwise. His actions' bespeak the in
fluence of a refined training. Prothero
displayed some nervousness, or, rather,
a boyish uneasiness, and sat with his
chin or cheek resting In the palm of ono
hand most of the time.
OPENING OF THE -CASE.
Just twelve minutes to 4 o'clock Judge
Diohl, accompanied by Clerks W. 11.
Lcary and D. M. Bernhlsel, entered the
room, and without the least delay tho
Judge ascended to the bench and Mr.
Lcary opened ono of the complaints.
"J. M. Shockley," he called, in sten
torian tones and looked about for the
prisoner. At a word from one of his at
torneys the accused stood up and fat
ened his eyes on the clerk. He stood
up his full height, with shoulders
thrown back and the two first fingers of
his light hand grasped firmly In tho
palm of his left.
Shockley never flinched during the
reading of the long complaint charg
ing him with the murder of Thomas
Brighton. When at the conclusion the
court asked, "Arc you represented by
counsel?" the prisoner, in a clear voice,
answered, "I am, sir." '
"Arc you prepared to enter a plea
to this charge at this time?"
"I am, sir."
"What plea do you desire to enter
guilty or not guilty?" ....
SECOND COMPLAINT READ.
Tho second complaint was then read
by the clerk, and the same answers
were made by the prisoner as to the
former. County Attorney Westervclt
addressed the court, saying that both
the State and the defense desired to
waive the preliminary examination.
Attorney Smith arose and stated that
