Long lslsr.d City, Nov. 30.-Judge, Jury,
lawyers and defendant in the case of The
"IVopIe against Martin Thorn for the murder
of William Oulilenuppe, came into court
tills morning in the hope and expectation
that this would be the last day of tins

all Martin Thorn. Initiative and stolid as
the little German tirbcr has appear-d,
throughout the trial, the strain had begun
totelMipon him. Theline.i in his face have
deepened, his cheek liones have come out
further from hli sunken cheeks, and the

oshyda by day. Ashetookhlsaccu;tonied

Wh-n thecourt opened this morning there
was apparently nothing In the way of u
prompt and tpcedy finish of the cabe. The
district ettorucy had refused to call Au
.rusta Nack to repeat Iier testimony or the
first trial. Mr. Howe, Tborn'B counsel,
tried in ciery way to get the people to
call b;r, and even went to far as to say
he would call her himself as a. witness for
the defeoc. The prosecuting at tome js
promptly called this bluff, and Mr. Howe
then Indignantly exclaimed: "We are not
going into Uie enemy's camp for our wit
nesses." It was expected that the summing up of
the lawyers nnd the Judge's charge would
not take over three hoars and a half in
all which would Lrlng the cac to tne

There is always something unexpected,
nowevtr, to delay the execution of plans
for rapid progress. In tliM cm- it same in

butchery of Guldensuppe, the bath rubber,

to alliw tin. Jury to go, ti-n reversed him
self and directed them to do so.
At tin- ipeulng of court Mr. Howe ad
dressed the court and said that in Justice
to the defendant he wantd to mike amo

of Thorn concerning the affldivlt that a
witness of the name of Petersen was com
The lawyer remlndedtherourt that Thorn
knew nothing of the affidavit.
"The itatemcnt, is practically corre !,"
admitted Mr. Youngs.
Justice Maddux thereupon charged the
Jury not to consider Thorn's testimony
on the vlni mentioned.
"Your honor, I have one other motion to
rnafee," said Mr". Howe, "which sulkes me
most fon1blj-os very necessary. Gotha
testified that. Thorn represeated to blra

Berlin, Nov. 30. The parliamentary' res

The Emperor conducted the opening in
perron, reading tlie speech, from the throne
himself. Instead of deputizing the chan
cellor to read it iu the chamber, as is cus
tomary. The ceremony took place in the White
Bail of lh.3 Schlocg at noon. After reading
tbe speech the Kaiser made an address
in which he rcalled how lie bad sworn and

The Emperor also called attention to the

who has been designated to command the
German squadron a bout to sail furKaki Chou
Bay to re-enforce the German fleet in

Tbe Emperor's speech was chiefly de
voted to naval affairs. The Kaiser de
clared tliat the German navy was not equal
to Its mission, and did not suffice to afford
security to the home ports nnd coasts in
the event of a blockade. He also said that
the German trade was increasingly shar
ing the markets of the world, but Ger
many's warships were not sufficient to
protect their countrymen abroad by giving
them the support which by a display of
power ctuid only be secured.
The Emperor said he did nut wish to
vie with the maritime powers of tbe first
rank, but Germany must be able to iuh'u
tain her prtstlge. The Kniser referred
to the bill which the government wjl
introduce, designed to improve the suam
shlp connections of Germany with the forts
of Eastern Asia and for thcepcablutuneut
of an ecupr.iulo nimmlttee for the prep

tbe results of the election which returns

Is so fond, he turns his back on the precepts

I am merely sorry for the poor nun'sln

"He vlllifles his fellow-men. he who

lesson he wishes tlie paople to be brought
up under? Are these the Instructions he
-wants to give to his fellow-men, to chil

notice, except to call attention to the dam
age he is doing by the example he is set
ting. "His dabbling la politics resulted In more
corruption of people' previously Innocent

Dr. Johnston, Hi? pastor of the Metropoli

anti-Catholic references in one of his re
