yes. lie smiled when he . glanced
up again and began to twist Ilia mus
tacho nervously.
At noon It was learned that Mrs.
Mllano and her three little children,
wno were suiihiiviictj uuui twunijn, ,, .
Y., to attend the trial, the mother apj J
daughter as witnesses, were without J
funds to buy their lunch. Several fel- I
low countrymen were willing to bosrbw
their charity, but Attorney James 1".
Kelly, one of the counsel for the ac
cused father, took the family to a cafe
and bought them a bounteous meal.
A line legal point developed at the I
outset of Che trial, Daniel W. Daker,
former United States attorney, another
attorney for Mllano, raising the que- I
tlon that the code docs not provide for
the. summoning of additional talesmen
when the regular panel Is exhausted, i
ine tneory was combated by the aov
ernment attorneys and Justice Stafford
took the Government's view, subse
quently Issuing the order for the extra
venire of sevcnty-flvo mon.
In the oxnmlnntinn nf th tatAamn
the only unusual question asked was
ui oy Attorney linker, wno inquired
f the nrosDCCtlvn lurnrn had nnv
prejudice against the Italian race.
viuito a number of talesmen were ex
cused because they had conscientious
scruples against capital punishment.
Alienists On Hand.
Anticipating that the defense will
be based on a plea of Insanity, the
Government had Dr. D. Percy Hick,
ling, of the Washington Asjlum and
'Jail, and Dr. Edward M. Brush, of
Baltimore, two well-known alienists,
In court to observe the defendant and
his actions during tho trial. They sat
close to the prisoner.
Attorneys Kelly and linker have not
yet announced their line of defense,
but It Is understood that they will
attempt to prove an alibi for their
client, and In the event of the failure
of this effort will resort to the plea
of Insanity.
Flft -eight witnesses havo been sum
moned by tho Government to prove the
murder of the little Smith boy. The
prosecution will be based almost wholly
on circumstantial evidence, as the only
testimony thus far available, It Is under
stood, simply proves that the lad was
last seen alive when he entered tho
Italian's shoe shop on tho afternoon of
September 9, 1911.
Miss Nettle RadclofT, of Philadelphia,
who has been described as "the woman
In yellow," and wrongly so, according to
District Attorney Wilson, will be an
Important witness for the Government.
She will testify that she gave the Smith
boy a quarter to get change, and that
he went Into Mllun'a place with the
money.
What happened In the shoe shop Is a
matter of conjecture or suspicion. The
next morning the charred body of the
boy with head battered In was found
lying on a couch. The lounge, as a
gruesome exhibit, Is quite outside the
court room door, and will be brought
before the Jury.
The defense has about a score of wit
nesses but Attorney Kelly says that
several of the witnesses for tho Govern
ment will give testimony for the de
fendant. Ills confinement In Jail for thirteen
months wrought a great change In the
appearance of Mllano. Ills hulr has
whitened to a great extent, and his
military bearing, born of service In tho
Italian army, was conspicuously ab
sent. A pallor has replaced the
swarthy complexion he had when ho
was arrestee: more tnan a ear ogo
Assisting In tho prosecution of the
case Is Assistant United States Attor
ney S McComas Hawken, who con
ducted the examination of the talesmen
today.
Body Found in Debris.
Firemen poking among the debris of
a blaze In a cobbler's Bhop at Fourth
and II streets noithwest on tho morn
ing of September 11, 1911, first discov
ered the charred remains of Harry
Elton Smith, the twoIe-year-old boy
alleged to have been tho victim of
Tony Mllano. Mllano' Tony, tho shoe
maker," he had called himself was
taken Into custody suspecttd of arson
and murder.
Evidence was brought to light by the
police that Mrs Francos Hooper, of 404
H street, had heard a scream In
MIlano'B s1iop about 5 o'clock the after
noon before the discovery of the boy's
body. Mrs Hooper said sho saw
Mllano choking some one In tho rear
of the shop
Earle Ahmay. fourteen years of age,
living at 935 V street, next came for
ward and told of seeing Mllano, as he
thinks, sitting on top of a small hoy
In tho rear of tho cobbler's shop Tho
man was striking tho boy Flro Mar
shal Nicholson swore that the shop had
been saturated with kerosene. Maggie
Mllano, tho arrested man's six-year-old
"bambino." admitted halng bought 6
cents' worth of coal oil at her father's
command
The second day after tho discovery
came the Inquest, signalized by what
was probably the most dramatic event
which ever took place at a public
hearing In Washington
A frill oiing girl, whose big brown
tvs xx ere wl d with horror und anguish,
nprun; at the ncritscd man and gripped
him by the thnit. It was Myrtle
Pnlth. sister of the little boy alleged
to have been bnitully done to death In
th cobbler's shot). Ptvo strong men
vore necessary to pry loose tho lingers
nf the girl from tho burly neck of Ml
lano. That afternoon the coroner'i Jury
brought In a verdict accusing the Ital
ian of the crime of murder and a month
later Mllano tried to kill himself in
Jail by hanglpg.
Series cf Tragic Events
Meantime his wife had been driven
from her home for non-pajment of rent,
his children were starxlng and without
protection from tho cold, and he him
self faced trial for his llfo.
But tho muidor, tho attempt of Myr
tie Smith to strangle Mllano in the hear
ing room of the morgue and the at
tempted suicide nf Mllano are not tho
only chapters In this procession of
tragic events A Uttlo later Miss Smith,
taking medicine In tho night, mistook a
bottle of acid for a heart tonic and died
after much sunering.
On December S9. last, the grand Jury
Indicted Tony Mllano on tho chargo of
nurdtr In the first' degree Tho true
bill contained three counts, one charging
that Mllano killed tho Uttlo boy with n
hummer, ono that ho ustd a piece of
wood, and tho third that the "weapon
used Is unknown to tho grand Juiy
The exact manner In which the Smith
boy met death has been mutter of
ronjectuie ever since the trnglc ex rut
'that the fire might havo been kindled
to cover up the crime bus been the the
ot y generally held, hut why, Mllano

Harry Smith to death has not been

prints which tho trial may bo expected
to clear up, provided the m story la

One theory advanced ns to the cause
of the assault on the child xxas that
Mllano may have misunderstood an Im
pediment In the Smith lad s speech and
thought tne boy was trying to tease
him.

"Did you and Becker ever discuss
Rosenthal!"
Decker Cursed Rosenthal.
"We did many times. I met Becker
at 121th street and Sovonth avenue
shortly before Becker was killed. Harry
Vallon and Jack Rose were wttn mo
when Becker came along. Sam Schcpps
was also there. Bcckor said to usi
That Rosenthal Is mak

to Magistrate McAdoo and la trying to
see tho district attorney. Now, If he
ever gets to Whitman, it will be all
off In this town. Why don't you see
the boys and have tho

"I said that croaking a man was a
serlotis matter, but he got mad and
said "That's all right. I want him

"There was nothing else for mo to do
so I said: 'All right, Charlie If that
Is tho way you feel, of course I will

a few days."
"Wcro tho methods bv which Rosen

"Well, Jack did not want the gun
men to do tho Job. Ho thought It could
be pulled off better In my poker room."
"Now, I want you to tell the Jury
about what happened In connection with
Rosenthal on July IS," said Moss.

he ald that Jack Sulllxan had told him

A large reception at tho Pan-American
Union tonight at 9 o'clock Is the last
event on the program of entertainments
provided by the Chamber of Commerce
for tho delegates of the International
Congress of Chambers of Commerce,
who have been the guests of the city
for the past two days.
Tomorrow morning at 9.30 o'clock the
party of 800, composed of tho delegates
and their families, will leave for Phila
delphia, where their tour of a dozen of
the most prominent American cities
comes to an end.
For tonight's reception the entire
special committee of 200 from the Cham
ber of Commerce will act as a reception
committee. These gentlemen, with their
wives, and headed by John Barrett,
director general of the Pan American
Union, and the officers of the chambr,
will meet the guests at the top of the
south stairway In tho Pan American
building.
In spite of tho Inclement weather
the trln bv boat to Mt. Vernon this
afternoon was largely attended. Tho
delegates expressed a determination
uf seeing Washington's home, rain
or shine, and almost the entire dele
gation was on board the boat at 2:30
o'clock.
One of the achievements of note,
which seems likely to result from
tho close association of the delegates
to the congress during their long
tour of the country Is tho formation
of a Cosmopolitan Club, with promi
nent business men from all parts of
the world as members and with
branches In commercial centers
The Idea In forming the club Is to pro
mote reciprocity and good feeling among
the business men of the various nations
In order to promote more frequent visits
of business men to other countries. It
Is planned to have tho members of the
club In anv country nay all the ex
penses of a visitor from another country
