GIVKS IMPOUTAXT KVIDEXCK
Miss Pearl Keller, a nurse, was the
only witness at the trial today. She
completed her direct testimony at the
*nd of the morning session. Attorney
[rank P. Walsh, counsel for Doctor
Hyde, cross examined her in the after
noon. Attorney \Vs.lsh was unable to ;
shake her testimony except on a few
Jiimor details. She was calm through
out the time she was in the witness
chair.
The most important feature of her
testimony was that Miss Margaret
Swope'i symptoms, on the morning Doc
tor Hyde is said to have poisoned her.
wore similar to those of Colonel Snopi
just before he died.
On cross examination Walsh proved ;

Walsh asked Miss Keller if she made
ihe statement that "Hunton had a vio

The witness testified tliat she did
not recall her exact testimony, but
t >':c did not say. substantially.
liint Hunton was suffering from a con
vulsion.
Miss Keller t.aid she did not know

Hyde visited the room of Margaret
Swope on the morning: she ih alleged
to have been poisoned.
The mysterious "pink box" that has
;igured so prominently in the mystery
«>f the death of Colonel Swop** was re
•;!i!<d by Attorney Uec-d, when Miss
Kr;W i r took the stand this morning.
Miss Keller said that Doctor Hyde
had a pink box in his hand wh*»n" he
gave the capsules to Swope.
Miss Kellor closed her testimony for
th<; state by telling briefly about Miss
Lucy Lee Swope being attacked by
typhoid fever four days after her re
turn from New York in the company
of Doctor Hyde.

Other nurses. *aid Miss Keller, asked
her to take charge of a portion of
the contents of the stomach of Miks

and yave it to Thomas Swope Jr., she
said. Miss Keller related how at the
behest of Doctor Twyman. all of the
medicine in the house was. destroyed
Immediately after Margaret Swope suf
fered a convulsion.
This was the day the nurses struck
in tl.e Swope residence, and the state
made every effort to inject the story of I
tlie uprising of the nurses against Doc- j
tor Hyde.
Amid a storm of objection from the |
defendant's oouniel; the witness raan

Three Thousand Knights Templar Visit
City for Fifty-second Grand Conclave
Delegates Parade From
Hotel Amid Cheers
of Multitude
Orator Describes Ob
ject of Body as Seek
ing Truth's Light
Resplendent in their regalia of sword,
plume and uniform, 3,000 Kniphts
Templar of the state assembled in San
Franoise-o yesterday prepared for the
opening of the fifty-second conclave
this morning.
They began arriving with the morn
ins trains. As each body appeared
local knights, mounted and on foot, es
corted it to the Palace hotel, which will
be the headquarters of the organiza
tion durins? the conclave.
The spectacular features of the day
-•— -\u25a0 : I,
were the parade and the hall at the
Fairmont hotel, both events being: made
o«-<-asions for a full display of the trap
pings of white and pro Id, and both were
marked by the dignity that character
izes the Knights Templar.
THOUSANDS WITNESS PARADE
The parade started from the Palace
hotel at 2 o'clock^ marched up Market
street to Van N>s.s avenue and thence
along Golden Gate avenue to the Golden
Gate Commandery hall at Gutter and
j Steiner streets. At the head rode the
j regulation platoon of police, under the
j command of Captain Kelly. It was
followed by a troop of mounted knights.
composed of aids and escorts to the
grand officers. Heading them was Ro
dolph W. Meek, grand captain general
of California.
The grrand officers rode in automo
biles and their rear was brought up by
2,000 knights on foot, representing dele
gates and visitors from every com
mandery in the state.
Four brass bands were in the parade.
Th<Mr music emptied the stores and
offices along the route, and the parade
was witnessed by thousands of per- j
sons.
CHEERS FOR FANCY DRHX
At times the spectators burst Into
j handolappjng. special favor • being
| shown to San Jose commandery No. 10,
which kept up a continued series of
fancy drills and company movements.
The greatest applause came when the
company formed a cross while march
ing.
The oration was delivered by Edward
Henry Hart of Oakland, who spoke on
the efforts of the Knights Templar In
seeking the truth.
"The greatest men of every nation,"
he said, "are frequently those whom
the nation has treated with contempt
and often put to the death. Such were
the cases of Sorrates and Christ, but
their deaths gave an added impetus
to the truths which they voiced during
their lives.
SWORD A SYMBOL OF LIGHT
'"In the old days the Knight Templar
drew his sword to take life; but today
the sword of the knight is but a symbol
jof the light he seeks, of the truth
j which he would acquire. It is drawn,
not to take life but to protect the de
fenseless, the orphan; to defend right
and virtue.
"Only twice has it became necessary
to defend the Ciiristian religion with
the sword. The crusades were the out
,eome of the religious fanaticism of the
agf and ended in disgrace and failure,
"The only defense of Christianity lies
in the gleaming sword of truth, and,
unless a religion or a doctrine has as
its fundamental basis the light of truth,
all the swords of all the knights will
not make it conqueror.
IDEALS OF KMGIITSTK3IPLAR
"The religion of the Knight Templar
i of today is the religion of peace and
of humility, the religion of Jesus Christ,
which called for the turning of the
! other cheek when the first was stricken.
"The oceans of blood which have been
j shed in religious warfare have not be«m
duo to the Christian religion but to
men's perverted ideas of it. The true
knight must be the true man and the
true man just the gentleman.
"The great institute of free masonry
is a search for the light of truth.
Knights Templar will endure because
their doctrines call for a.n untrammeled
freedom of the soul and because their
vows contain the noblest e.thics enun
ciated since the dawn of time."

CENSUS DEPUTIES
HAVE HARD TASK
OAKLAND, April 21. — Supervisor
James M. Burke of* the census bureau
announced., today that great difficulty
had been- experienced by the enumera
tors in getting the inmates of lodging
houses properly to fill out the blanks.
Some places have been visited as many
as five times by a deputy, who has been
received with anything but courteous
treatment.
Next Monday, five new agents will
be appointed for lodging houses alone.
Unless the tactics -of lodgers- and own
ers undergo a change a number of ar
rests will be made. Burke today said
that every man who failed to do what
was required of him would be prose
cuted to the fullest.
As a warning and 'important notice
to aid in taking the census. Supervisor

mation: . ' . t

' States census bureau. Oakland, either by
telephoue or letter.
The enumerators haye left census slips
to be filled out at many places w here" lod (fern

slips. Commencing Monday. April 23. a fore«
of special, agents will be employed to collect
\u25a0 thfse slips and to enumerate all the people
where the regular enumerators bare had
difficulty.
We hope these special agents Trill meet

that the law compels all persons to furnish
the censug information when it is requested
of them. I am slad to state that the' re —
sponse of the general residents of Oakland,
to the census has been good, but I hare to
warn, and I do hereby warn all peopl* who
are asked to fill out slips at' their lodgings
or homes and leare them for the census men.
that -failure or negligence on their part In
doing no will be met by prompt action
. through' the law.

AX GETS NECKS OF
THREE FIRE CHIEFS
Commission Loses No Time in
Suspending Layden, Russell
and Farley
President Sullivan Explains
That McCarthy Had No
Part in Decapitation
The, restraining hand of the court
removed, the fire commissioners lost no
time yesterday in getting rid of the
thre.e battalion chiefs of the Shaugh
nessy regime who had withstood the
attempts to. disrate them. President Sul
livan, in speaking. of the board's con
firmation of the suspension of Chiefs
James Layden, \S. D. Russell and M. J.
Farley, took occasion to make it plain
that Mayor McCarthy's hand was not in
It. He said:
"The mayor never said a word to us
about removing Farley, Layden or Rus
sell. The board acted for itself in sus
pending them, and the chief will prefer
charges against them for incompet'ency
and insubordination. Of course, the
mayor expects us to get results. He
wants the department to have efficiency,
and we will co-operate with him in get
ting it."
"I suspended Layden, Russell and
Farley this morning for insubordination
after each had refused to obey my
order that he report for duty to the
company to which he had been assigned
formerly by the board." said Chief Mur
phy. "There was no unpleasarltness
about it. I simply told the men what
they were expected to do and they re
fused to leave the posts where they
had been acting as battalion chiefs."
The commission's guillotine worked
smoothly at yesterday's session.
The secretary read the chief's report:
"Gentlemen: I respectfully desire to
report that I have this day suspended
from further service in this depart
ment pending further action by your
honorable board the following named
members thereof for insubordination
and incompetence: Matthew J. Farley,
S. D. Russell and James Layden. Re
spectfully submitted, f
"THOMAS R. MURPHY,
"Chief of Department."
Commissioners Donoh*je, Dillon and
President Sullivan without remark ap
proved the report and then ordered the
chief to file written charges against
the three.
A general rearrangement of the bat
talion chiefs was made yesterday by
Chief Murphy. Battalion Chiefs O'Brien.
Cook and Maxwell, who have been the
"doubles" of - the suspended chiefs,
Layden, Russell and Farley, were not
left at the latter commanders' stations.
Battalion Chief Wills stepped into
Layden's shoes, Thomas J. Murphy into
Russell's and James Radford into Far
ley's.
HIGH SCHOOL BOYS WILL
TAKE CENSUS OF OMAHA
City Wants to Get Into the
200,000 Class-
Ninety-three high sctiool boys, work
ing under Census .Enuemerator Charles
L. Saunders of this congressional dis
trict will take a preliminary census of
Omaha on April 6 and 7, before the
official count begins on April
15, in the hope of finding every man,
woman and child and proving Omaha's
population to be nearly double what it
was 10 years ago, says the Omaha cor
respondent of the New York Sun.
This plan was evolved by Mr. Saun
ders and will be paid for by the busi
ressmen of Omaha. Official enumera
tors have been hard to secure In
Omaha. Feeling it necessary to have
some means of checking them, Mr.
Saunders proposed* the boy census
takers.
The government furnishes enumera
tors with all the preliminary blanks
they need, printed on white paper, with
the schedules on one side and directions
for reporting on the other. These
schedules will be taken out by the
high school boys and one left for each
family in the city. •
The city has been divided into 93
districts. Each boy will 'have a district
and will be expected to leave a sched
ule with each family and also to make
a count of his own.
Allthe report each boy will have to
make is on small cards about the size
of a postal card. On these he writes
the number of every house In his dis
trict, together with the total number of
people sleeping in that house. His
count ends there, and he leaves the
schedules to be picked up later by the
official enumerators If they are filled in:
If not, the enumerator must ask the
questions and do the filling in.
The boys' cards will show the total
number of people In each district, and
working in the same districts the of
ficial enumerators will be expected to
get an equal number or be sent back
over their routes.
The campaign to get every one
counted will be extended after the of
