from timo to time, and there are pome
interesting developments being brought
Colonel Hunt Chipley, now of Atlanta,
hut who managed the tight for tho Bell
Company when the latter was applying
for Its franchise at the hands of the City
Council, was the chief witness last night,
and ho was kept on the stand for nearly
two hours. Colonel Chipley made a fine
witness, and several times he and City
Attorney Pollard, who was examining him
It d ?omo rather spirited passages. Colonel
Cutshaw followed Colonel Chipley, but his
testimony was brief, and related mainly
to his strenuous and persistent opposi?
tion to the ordinance. Colonel Chipley had
testlCcd that Colonel Cutshaw told him
If he. would keep General Mean y away
he, (Colonel Cutshaw), would favor the
Bell ordinance. This Colonel Cutshaw de?
nied, and he said ho had always opposed
the Bell ordinance.
TOLD WHOLE STORY.
Colonel Chipley took up tho fight from
Its inception nnd told of his entire con?
nection with it. When Colonel Cutshaw
had.concluded his testimony the commit?
tee aroso to meet again on Monday rilght.
Ther'o will likely bo another session on
Thursday night, when Mr. Fairfax Mon?
tague will tell of his connection with
The testimony of Colonel Chipley last
night was spicy at times, and was heard
with the closest attention. He told how
he, on behalf of his company had em?
ployed a number of leading local politi?
cians for the purpose of creating public
fontlment for his company, and said how
much he had paid to each.
He related the story of supperi end
New York trips, and said he pretty gen?
erally entertained his friends on the
Street Committee after their meetings
when ho was In tho city.
His story was a very interesting one,
nnd he repeatedly stated that he had
never paid any Councilman or city offi?
cer any money or other valuable tiling
for his vote or Influence in the fight.
The ^ meeting was called to order at
S:?,r? o'clock by Chairman Minor and a
Quorum of members answered to their
nemes. It was stated that Captain Hall
was out of the city and therefore could

for the Southern Bell Telephone Com?
pany, was sworn, having appeared as a
voluntary witness, Colonel Chipley was
examined by Mr. Pollard, and said ho
had had charge of getting through the
Asked by Mr. Pollard what he had
found It necessary to do in order to get
the ordinance through, ? he witness re?
viewed his actions at some length, and
gave a brief history of the fighi. He
said Colonel Cutshaw had told him that
if the latter would keep General Meaney
away from Richmond the City Engineer
would help witness in tho matter of
si tiling the differences between the
Southern Bell Company and tho city of
Richmond. He had declined the proposi?
tion, and ha.d noi afterwards conferred
with the City Engineer.
Colonel Chipley said In the opening of
the fight he had learned that the City
Attorney had determined to prevent, If
possible, the consideration of the Bell
ordinance, regardless of its merits. There,
was here consid?rable cross firing be?
tween witness and the City Attorney.
Colone] Chipley demanded tho reading of
tin opinion of tho City Attorney to the
Street Committee, advising against tak?
ing up the Bell petition until there had
been a settlement In the courts, and It
was finally read by Mr. Pollard.
Then followed another warm colloquy
between tho Messrs. Chipley and Pollard,
In which the latter said tho former was
Imagining a great many things? Colonel
Chipley declared that he was not Imag?
ining anything, hut was telling facts,
and the chair interposed to say that the
Witness was digressing from the subject.
Witness said he had secured the services
of Messrs. Manning and Saunders at $1,000
each: that Hon. John E. Epps, Messrs.
Humphrey Calder, J, P. Pettls, and Eu?
gene Walton were also paid. Messrs.
Phil Shield and R. L. Montague had
acted in a legal capacity, and were paid.
Captain A. Pizzlnl. Jr., had been a
friend of the company, but ho did not
know that there had been any financial
transactions between Captain Pizzlnl and
the Bell people.
His company liad been opposed by the
City Attorney, City Engineer, chairman
of the Street Committee and others.
"Among other things," said the witness.

secured for $1,000 each. Mr. W. ?
Leaman was paid $900. Messrs. John

Pettia and Euneno Walton were also
paid. Their services were engaged
In a legitimate way to aid the Bell In
securing a franchise by moulding
public sentiment. No one was asked
to corrupt a Councilman. Some
members of the Street Committee
were guests of the Bell at lunch or
dinner nearly every day during the
fight, and some were taken on trips
to New York. The total amount ex?
pended In this way was from $3,000

and had a long .interview with thelr
brother. Miss Manoley wept bitterly when
taken to the cell where her brother Is
locked up. Tho prisoner was much af?
fected when confronted with bis sister.
After an exchange of greetings he re?
iterated the story of tho shooting. 'I'm
afraid the dream was due to cigarettes.
perusing the exploits of Jesse James and
the reading of detective stories and blood
and thunder dime novels of which Frank
was passionately fond ever si?co he was a
boy," said Tony Manoley. The prisoner's
brother further stated that Frank Mano?

ing off revolvers ever since he could re?
"On ono occasion, said "Tony," "My
brother shot himself through the leg and
still carries tho bullet as a reminder of
that event. On another occasion he ac?
cidentally shot himself through the hand.
He used to smoke a great many cigar?

ago. I am satisfied, however, that the
shooting of his wife was done In a dream.
So convinced are we of his Innocence that
we will lose tho last cent wo have to

Execution Took Place Before
Proceedings Could Be
LINCOLN, NEB., July 10.?The hanging
of William Rhea, which was to have
taken place at 12:30 o'clock to-day was
postponed thirty minutes, pending a de?
cision of the Hupreme Court on an ap?
plication for an Injunction to prevent
the hanging. The action before the court
is brought In view of the reprieve grant?
ed Rhea by ox-Governor Savage. The re?
prieve imposed "hard labor" upon Rhea
as, punishment. The attorneys for Rhea
argued that this Imposition nullified the
sentence for hanging, in that it serves
two punishments for the same crime.
f?ie Supreme Court denied the applica?
tion for an injunction, but expressed a
willingness to go into consultation re?
garding the granting of a reprieve by the
Governor until a further hearing of the
application could be made. The Governor
and Chief Justice Sullivan, of the Su?
premo Court, then went into consultation
regarding such action. The conference
soon ended. Governor Mickey refused to
grant a further reprieve and ordered the
sheriff to proceed with the hanging,
Tho attorneys for Rhea In a last effort,
went beforo Judge Holmes, of the Dis?
trict Court, in an endeavor to get the
lower court to prepare an injiuictioii atop-,
ping the execution. Before the injunction
proceedings could be prepared, Governor
Mickey's order was carried uut, and Rhea
was hanged at 1.2)
ATTEMPT TO WRECK

OF A QUIET DAY
Another Striker Has Returned
and Resumed His Work.
OF THE TWO SIDES
Messrs. Orr and Griggs Say They
Have the Company Whipped?The
Company Does Not See it that
Way?A Proposition for
Discussion is Flatly Re?
jected by Union.
So far as excitement of an Intense sort
Is concerned, yesterday within the strike
region was chiefly notable for tho de?
velopments which did not come, an at?
tempt to wreck a car being tho only
exception. In the filtered spots whore
suggestions of renewed disorder have be?
gun to appear the military tramped the
Itreels again and tito spots pronvptlv
faded from the surface. At midnight ail
was quiet over the line and had been for
many hours, except for a stono now and
then or some other incident of a like
No further movement, of the military
from tho city has been made and several
detachments of those here have been set
to work again?an arrangement which is
Immediate in its effects for good. Even
furloughs have stopped for the nonce,
except In cases of known necessity and to?
day will probably pass also without see?
ing the departure of more troops.
Colonel Anderson is ??till of the opinion
that as yet it is unsafe to make any
change In the protective policy adopted
and the experiences of yesterday tend to
confirm him and others In the belief that
it is tho bayonet and the musket which
are keeping in repression tho fuss-makers.
Practically no disorder of a serious sort
was reported and. only here and there at
Intervals few and far between could it
be told that there was anything unusual
at all. The most strious happenings of
tho day so far us Is known was an abortiva
attempt to wreck v. t,.r crowded with
Another Striker at Work.
Among the interesting developments of
the day was the return to work o? an?
other striker, a motorman named Brauer,
followed the renewed suggestion that
there are other men who want to go
back. The ?trlkc situation Itself shows
no great change. The company declares
that It Is progressing well In the task
of re-establishing the system on the
old schedule; the union asserts that It
has the company whipped, and that Mr.
Huff will give up soon. ? meeting of
the strikers was held last night, as usual,
and there Avere several Interesting mat?
ters, including a refusal on tho part
of Division 152 to entertain a proposi?
tion to have a discussion among its mem?
bers of the relative merits of the con?
tention of the company nnd that of the
strikers. In the way of legal matters,
which are occupying a prominent place
in tho public mind Just now, there were
the discharge of AVInn, charged with
shooting Sergeant Easley, and further
developments in the Farley mix-up. In

of Luther Taylor was begun, With some

That the Burden of Evidence
in Taylor Case.
A VERY CAREFUL INQUIRY
Good Coroner's Jury in Manchester
Seeking to Thoroughly Investigate.
Case Likely to Continue All
Evidence presented before the coroner's
Jury In Manchester yesterday tendevi to
show that Luther Taylor was shot In
his frantic attempt to escape from his
guard, after having been repeatedly
warned to halt, and while ho was healing
his horse in the effort to get away after
ho had either pushed or caused to fall
out of the buggy the soldier who had
started to the station house with him in
These facts came out In the testimony
of some of the most reputable citizens
of Manchester, Including Messrs. Robert
B. Taylor, William P. Giillam, J. .1.
O'Brien, ?. ?. Owens, ?. ?. Macrone,
R. L. Patram, and others.
While thero was an apparent feeling
against the soldiers in tho testimony of
nearly every witness, ?.renounced in some
of them, tho facts remain as referred
The testimony of Mr. Macrone was tho
most Important, and carried with It a
clear statement, while that of Mr. Pa?
li am ?.? equally as calm and bore the
stamp of conviction.
In a number of Instances there was
apparent conflict, that of tho mon who
were arrested with Taylor being particu?
larly so. One of them, Bass, distinctly
Rliited that none of the party had been
drinking, while the statement of Clem?
en ts was to the effect that they liad
taken drinks at various bars, and An?
drews specified the places where drinks
had been taken. This directly contro?
verted the statement made by Bass.
With ono or two exceptions all the
wltnesea testified that Taylor was com?
manded to "halt!" a number of times,
and one witness said the first shot fired
was, apparently, directed to tho heavens
above, and another said that it was his
Impression from the deflection of tho
flashes from the gtuis that most of the
firing down Cowardlti Avenuo was toward
the earth beneath.
No two men who were placed on the
stand testified to having heard the samo
number of shots fired. Some of the wit?
nesses stated that the Foldiers were as
thick as leaves, while one, at least, said
that when the first ball was fired the
man who shot was the only soldier in
That the testimony conflicted In many
of the details was readily seen, and It
was apparent that the excitement at?
tendant upon the occasion had played
havoc with the memory of some of the
in many minds the feeling against the
soldiers was intense when they first ap?
peared in Manchester, and that feeling
was Intensified after tho shooting. Cap?
tain O'Brien, one of the witnesses, said
on the stand that he had never favored
the bringing of troops to Manchester,
and that he felt there would not luvve
been any trouble had they not come.
Mr. Page's Intentions.
Commonwealth's Attorney Page was
present al tho hearing on behalf of the
Commonwealth. In many of his ques?
tions It was apparent that an effort
would be made to prove that tho soldiers
who figured in the Incidents that led
up to tho shooting were themselves In?
toxicated and went beyond their power
in shooting Taylor.
Some of the Jurymen questioned! wit?
ness in this particular, and Bonn of the
witnesses took occasion to say that they
had observed some of the soldiers In a
drunken state. Captain O'Briei? ?inri Mr,
Maorome said as much In referring to
a soldier who had directed them fb "move
on," when they wero In Coward In Ave?
nue Immediately after the shooting.
"Move on." said the soldier.

bad a good sleep during the early hours
of this morning.
Shortly before midnight the condition
of tho Pontife waa reported to have un?
dergone no change, and it was added that
ho had just dropped peacefully Into sleep.
At that hour all within the palace was
rjulet, tho Pontiff's upartment alonn
showing signs of life. The Pope slept
until nearly 2 o'clock tlds morning, when
he woko up, seemingly more refreshed
and asked for food. Ills pulse was taken
and found to vary from ST to 03. His
temporaturo was M.S. and his breathing
Irregular. Tho latter part of tho night
waa not so good, owing to tho restless?

owing to tho widespread beliof that

strangely with the brilliant eo.ulpages of
the ambassadors. Outside St. Peter'?, th?
ordinary visitors hurried past the Swi?i
guard and ascended the staircase leading
to tho inner court of the Vatican.
Tho sun beat fiercely on the plain
white shutters which shelter the Pope's
room, and all eyes were turned towards
them. Compared with the magnificence
below, with tho bewildering colors of the
papul court and the rich attiro of th?
guards, the shuttered windows are pea?.
ant-like in their simplicity. Another win?
