be gav not the slightest Indication of It
by any movement of the hands, the head,
the eyes or the lips. So far as any one In
the courtroom could ttll. he never uttered
m. word all day. Ho was the unconscious

noon when he was brought Into the court
room proper, lying on his bed. His eyes
and mouth were slightly closed and he
looked every whit a dead man when Colonel
Nelson, his lawyer. In a loud voice, asked
him how old he was and where he lived.
He gave no replies and was s-t aside.
The defense presented some strong testi

stronger for to-morrow, when they expect
to rest their case.

we do not have to refuse the children when
they ask for it."
"I was surprised that she would permit
the children to drink even the food coffee,

meeting at local headquarters to-day. C
K. 5ill. chairman of the committee, pre
sided. To-dav's session was devoted ex
clusively to the hearing of arguments by
shippers. To-morrow it Is expected that
certain special classifications will be con
sidered. Th s committee has practically the rate
making pov.er over all the territorv east
f tho Mi'-t-isslnpl and north of the Ohio
River. While shippers do not anticipate an
increase, not a few are quite conlldent that
reductions will be made on a number of im
portant articles. None of the trunk line of
ficials when approached vesierday cared to
predict what action might be taken t this
tonferenee. It was learned, however, from
an unofficial but reliable sourcy that a very
largo part of the bus.ness that for some
time past has been before the trunk lines
his lreen In the nature of requests lrom
thippsra for changes in classification which
would amount to lower rates.

their methods by advancing commodities
from lover to higher cl.issts. thereby car
rying witli such commodities thus advanced
an Increased raie cf freisht.
Shippers of all kinds of commodities
throughout the trunk line territory protest
ed against the changes in classification.
The trunk lines finally granted concessions
to tho snippets b naming a. long list of
articles to be rated us second and third
class, but on which a IS per cent and U
per cent reduction was allowed from the
regular second and third class rate.
Oilier railroads, uotabiy those In the
South, following the lead of the Ofllcial
Classification O-mmlttee. mado changes
which were even more violent in their ef
fects. KfTorta have been mado to bring
about sorno reductions In Southern terri
tory, but thus far without e-Te-cr. What
ever changes aro decided upon at the con
ference to-day will not become operative
until next January.
There. 2s an advance in rates, however,
to tako effect on November 1, which ap
plies to eastbound traffic on the linen in
tho Ceneral Freight Association, which cov
ers the territory between the Mississippi
River an.l Pittsburg and Buffalo. The rata
on domestic gialn letwcen the Mississippi
River and New York will be advanced from
IT1 cents to W- cents i-er lw pounds, and
the export tariff will go up from IV,

Tho Texas and Pacific has re-entered tho
fold of the Southwestern Passenger Ilureau.
from which It withdrew about one month
ago. Official notification of this action lias
been received by Chairman C. M. Pratt
from V.. P. Turner, tho general passenger
agent of that company.
"If Mr. Turner keeps up this practlco of
dropping In and out of tnc association he
wilt soon achlcvo the reputation of being
an artful dodger." said a passenger agent
yesterday, "lie withdrew the Ust time, be-caui-o
h thought the lines for dealing with
t.cket brokers were not heavy enough. He
named two lines, whose tickets, he said,
had been found In ticket scalpers' offices,
and he wanted the agents or these com
panies fined Jl.VO e-ae-n. The agents or
there companies did a little detective work
tl.imstlves and soon furnished Chairman
Pratt with some surprising Information
relative to tickets sola by Mr. Turner's
comD.uiv. The Jl.wO tines were not assessed
anil Mr. Turner has consented to play
again. The fact of the matter is that cer
tain classes of transportation Issued by rail
road companies will find their way Into the
hand of scalpers, no matter how many
precautions are taken by tho passenger
agents. Mr. Turner has been In the bul
i.ess too long not to know this, and there
fore, should not let his suspicions get the
better of his judgment."

The suicide was not made rubl'c until to

said, of fear on the rart of Mr. Lane that
he had Krlght's disease. Ho had teen told
tliat he had tho disease, and that it would
result In his death unless he took better
caro of himself than he had been taking,
liecauso of the fear this warning engen
dered, ho had been taking stimulants. Tho
matter had rreyed upon his mind, It Is
stated, to the extent of rendering him Irre
FIKinslble for what he did last night.
For several days Mr. Lano had been In
an extremely nervous condition. He was
at his oflicc during tho day. and went homo

with his wife and child. He hRd Intended
going to the theater last night, but changed
his mind nnd remained at homo until about

might be of somo avail. Mrs. Lano sum

also summoned, and they remained with

when he died.
The bullet was discovered to have entered
near the right ear, and to have taken an
upward course through the brain, lodging
In the skull. It was found that the skull
had I een broken and the scalp sligntiy

make the effort to prevent unusual suf

this they were successful. Mrs. Lane bc

at her husband's bedside until death
