that the defendant. Joseph Caruso, con

Oscar Benolt in the back at the riot
on January 3. In which Annie Loplxxi
was killed. ,
Detective Lacourt told how he posed
as Caruso's chum until he learned of his
movements during the turbulent days of
the Lawrence textile strike. Lacourt's
testimony constituted one of the State's
trump cards and caused a sensation In
the court Toom.
Lacourt's disguise as an Italian oper
ative was so successful that be was
taken to the station house with Caruso
and locked up as a suspected confeder
ate, but was later released.
The defense will do its utmost to prove
that the bullet that killed the Loplxxi
woman did not come from anybody con
nected with the Industrial Workers' of
the World movement but Instead from
the revolver of a policeman or a soldier
or an Imported strike-breaker. The State

Old and young, rich and poor, met on a

vied with one another, in doing "stunts"
In celebration of the Halloween of 1912.
Weird, owl-like cries of ghosts and gob
lins broke the traditional quietness of the
streets, which instead of being deserted
at an early hour, were filled with thou
sands of merrymakers, laughingly Jolt
ing one another about and free from all
cares until midnight.
Cabinet officers, diplomats, and others
high In society caught the spirit of the
occasion and made merry at the cafes,
theaters, or at private Halloween par
ties. All the cafes and the hotel palm rooms
were In Halloween attire. They were
beautifully decorated with Jack-o'-lanterns
and other symbols of Halloween.
Special music was a feature of the night
as were the elaborate favors.
Small Boy Omnipresent.
Needless to say the small boy claims
his was the most enjoyable celebration.
Why have a theater party or Halloween
luncheon when there are still plenty of
1ack-o'-Ianterns and tick-tacks galore?
All through the early hours of the even

lives. Ghosts, witches, and hobgoblins

thoroughfares. Every caricature known
to the comic sheets were to be found.
"Mutt and Jeff," "Desperate Desmond."
"Silk" Hat Harry," "Nervy Nat." and
"Ham Hoollsan" were followed by
hundreds. "Jack Johnson." with his
electric light diamonds, flashy red vest,
his chert expanded, his famSus "golden

Halloween was appropriately cele

Every one was made happy by last

Cafe RepubUque, who walked past their
old employment places and wistfully
gazed upon the merry throngs Inside and
cast longing eyee upon the generous tips
that were being thrust Into the hands of
the smiling colored strike-breakers. The
old story of the killing of the goose that
laid the golden egg flashed to their
minds, and they sorrowfully wended
their way homeward.
