San Prnnclsco, Oct. 10. Under the rigid

1 In ram to-hiy, Thefldoro Durrani made
number of answers that are regarded us
decidedly Incriminating, lmimuch a.s they
apiir to he In direct cotnllct with well
He gave an explanation of a clue re
ganllng Hlanche Lament's disappearance,
said to have been received by him, that
win so pilpubly a filehood thnt cverv
liodv In the room laughed iiloud. The
stilling ntmoipherc of the overcrow disl
court room came to Durrani's reM?uo and
he was ninbld to I M-over from his con
fusion during the 'aort recess that fol
low nl. When he again came to the stand
ho remained calm dining tho most trying
ordeals. Tlio prosecution was, neverthe
less, well siUMled with thodav's work, for
It hid accomplished what had never been
dono before Durrani for a moment had
lost his wonderful self-jKissesslon, nnd had
been cuught In a number of iMrofaceil un
truths. The mno In which Diirrnnt loot his
bo.ulngs was In tellln? about the nfteraoon
he spent at the ferries waiting to sec If
niiinehe Limont would not appear. Two
dnjs befoie tho body of the oung woman
was discovered Durrant paid that as lie
was Mainline at tho coiner of Market and
Montgomery streets, a Ftranger approuihrd
him vind asked If his name was not Dnr
iiint. Tho stranger then asked Durrant if, in
view of the fact that his name had been
unpleasantly connected with the dlsap
peniameof the girl, he would not like to trv
and tlml her. Durrant replied that ho
would be ovcrjojed oven to obtain a trace
of the missing gill. "Watch the funics,
then," the Htl.inger said. "She will try to
cross the bay. That Is my advice."
He didn't ask tho strnnger his residence,
or for any additional Information. He
went to lunch and from there to the fer
lles, where he remained until 5 o'clock,
not having caught a gllmise of the missing
girl. While he was waiting, however, ho
saw thiee medical students nnd un old
schoolmate. One ot these men has already
testified that he saw Durrant accost a
school girl whose description ohsvveied
that of Minnie Williams, who was mur
dered th.it night, and ride away toward the
mission on a Howard street car.
Mr. Panics asked hint If he told nil) one
else of the i lue given him bv the stranger,
so thev lould lontlniie the seaivh. Dur
lant "hi he had no opportunll) to tell
any of Mis- l.imont's fi lends. When cues,
tinned i lo-elv Dunant admitted that lie
attended a meeting of tho Young People's
Soviet! the same evening, where he s-nv
seveial of Mi's Laiuoiit's Intimate filends.
Among others was Thomas Vogtl, whom
Dm rant had suld a moment befoie was
more inteiesled In the dlsappf arance of
the oung woman than nnybodj else, ex
cept Mis Noble, her aunt. Durrant ad
mitted that he had a private conversation
with Vogel, but did not think to tell him
about the clue le had obtalnnl
After a short leeess, during which Dur
rant leeovered his composute, a stirpiise
was sprung on him in the hope that It
mleht dlsioncort him. After asking Dur
rant If he had tver made a written state
ment of his wheri.ibouts on the duv
Hlanehe Lnmont was murdered, and le
celvlng nn .illliniative replv, District t
torney Harnes asked the following quts-tion-
"I It not a fact that you sent a written
statement of your case to nur nttornevs
and wrote on the envelope: 'To be ojn no I
If I am convicted, and to be returned If I
am acijultted-'' "
The excitement caused by the question
was Intense In the hum of voices Dur
l.int's answer wns lost, and the stenogra
pher wus asked to read the reply.
"I nevei sent an invelope to my attor
neys bearing such an Inscilptlon," said
Durrant was questioned at length regatd.
Ing the toinmimbatlon and the slgnltlcint
inscription nn tho envelope, but he d. tiled

Dm rant was next shown the various
gaiments worn by Hlanehe Limont nnd
asked If he bad secreted them In the bel

the' pieces or i lothlng as the ones worn bv
Miss Lam. ait on tlio day of her death, but

It Is Impossible, Mr, llrownltig argued, to
tender the Indian self-supporting so long
lis the old tilbal t editions continue. The
work at allotting the lands In peveinlty has
been completed In some of thu resetvntloiiu,
mid has ailviiiiced on others, nno obstacle
111 the way of allotment Is found In the
fact that some of tho lands ate not suitable
ror fanning purposes The lands allotted
must bo so good that the Indians can le. Ki
ll innke u living from them. Another
thing Hint wmks iigalnst allotment Is that
the allotted lauds are not taxnble r.ir
twcnt-Mvo .veurs. The result Is that the
white communities nbutit the allotted lauds
practically say to tho Indians "We will
not give ou emit t processes or school
pilvlleges sluca wo recelvo no lax moiuy

If the United Rlntes would tnnke oino
