a plea of insanity was set up by his

fidavits extending oyf.r his life. The
character of these affidavits left no
other course for the governor than to
submit these and tho prisoner himself
to an examination by our leading alien,
ists. in order to protect tho common
wealth from the charge that thc man
was actually insano when tho deed was
committed, as well as the present time.
The service shows that Richeson '
famil' is heavily afflicted with insanity,
that he himself is neurotic, a somnam
bulist and a neurasthenic; that ho. is
subject to extreme emotional distur
bances, marked by loss of memory
which two alienists have diagnosed ns
hysterical insanity, one physician ad

dolirium, and the majority opinion in
dicating that these attucks are hysteri

and for a varying period following it.

"Tho evidence, howovcr, while clear
ly revealing theso nttacks, indicates
that his crime was not committed by
him during suc-h an attack; thercforo,
while there is pome divergence of optu
ion among the alionists as to whether
those attacks indicate actual insanity,
there is sufficient ground for the con
clusion that he Is accountable for his

be contrary to the public good.

American and Kuropean coffee dealers.
This testimony came from Herman
Slelcken of the Now York firm of Gros

coffee His testimony was the first oral
confirmation given to the committee.
Mr. Slelcken attributed to the National

Witness Gets Excited.
Mr. Slelcken was excited at several
points of hla testimony. He questioned
tho propriety of the committee going
Into Brazil'.-! affair?., and hh for his own
participation, challenged tho attorney
general of Mfc -'United f?ta7js and oil the
attorneys of the country to discover any
Illegality In his action as a coffee mer
chant. The witness said unless something had
been done to help tho planters of Brazil,
there might have been a revolution. The
price of coffee had grown so low through
overproduction that the Brazilian gov
ernment exercised lis right to encourage
planters to diversify their crops. lie
said that while a tax had been put on
planting of coffee, the Brazilian govern
ment and the state of San Paulo had not
tried to prohibit the planting.
"Which would have been the worse
revolution In San Paulo or for the con
sumers of thi3 country to pay more for
their coffee?" aakod Samuel Untermeyer,
counsel for the committee.
Says No Escape.
"You would have had to pay that any
way," said the witness. Ho charged
that coffee would be higher still If tho

7 cents a pound. Now the production
was 1-1,000,000 bae3 and the prlco was
between 13 and 14 cents a pound. This
was accomplished by withholding from
the market tli surplus supply of coffee,
Mr. Slelcken .testified that there were
four million bags of corfco now being
held out of tho market by the valoriza

aalccd Representative Byrnes.
".No, It would have no effect on tiio
market." said Mr. Slelcken. "The bljr
loan by which the valorization scheme
was floated was 15.000,000 pounds stor
llng. English, German. French and Bel

thc National City bank 2,000.000 pound3

between the Morgan bank, the National
City and the First National."
Mr. Slelckcn's testimony was heard at
this time out of the order originally
planned by Edwin H. Farrar and Mr.
Untermeyer, counsel for tho committee,
in order to permit Mr, Slelcken to go
to Kurope. Chairman Pujo announced
