doubtless believed the cars would prove

Reports from tflie extreme front this
morning are that the government force

Escalon, only a week ago the head

Though in the skirmishing of Sun

they persistently returned to their
self-appointed task of rebuilding the
burned bridges and removing the
wreckage of dynamite laden cars

ILLNESS OF JURORS
Court Unable to Obtain Ser
vice on New Special
Los Angeles, CaL, Mar IL There
was no session of the Darrow trial to
day, owing to the Inability of the court
oJQcials to secure service on all of the
new special veniremen drawn yester
day afternoon when the first special
venire was exhausted.
There is a probability that t-e Jjary
thus far secured may be depleted by
one when the trial is resumed tomor
row. Paul Bitter, one of the first jurors
selected, told judge Hutton yesterday
that he was subject to violent head
aches and that he had suffered greatly
by the confinement The court an
nounced that, if he felt no better when
the trial was'resumed, he would be ex
cused.. Illness also served to handicap the
defence in keeping judge Cyrus McNutt
from the court room. Judge McNutt
was associated with Darrow as law
expert in the McNamara defence. On
account of his advanced age, it is feared
t his illness will be serious.
The special venire of ten yesterday
failed to yield a single juror, although
three peremptory challenges, two by
the defence and one by the state, were
used in exhausting the venire.

a material Increase in practically all
freight charges in the west.

will be said by Rev. Herbert a John

messages from the executed murderer

Richeson left no will, but in conver
sation with Mr Johnson and -William I
A. Morse, his counsel, during the hours
preceding his death, he gave directions
as to the disposition of his personal
effects. His library Richeson left to
clerical friends. i
The execution of Richeson is said '
by witnesses to have been the most
successful of any of the 14 that have
been held at the state prison since the
electric chair was frttopted. It was

'After his collapse of last Friday, It
had been feared that Richeson would
not be able to stand the final strain,
but on the way from his cell to the ex

his faith and God, calmly.

Richeson had no supper, saying he
desired none. After eating a little
fruit he lighted a cigar and was sitting
on the edge of his cot, apparently en
joying his smoke, when deputy warden
Allen entered his cell with the black
suit of clothes to be worn during the
execution. Richeson nodded calmly to
the deputy, but said nothing.
Attorney Morse, who visited Riche
son in the afternoon, found his client
calm and anxious to have the sentence
of the law carried out tonight
Mr. Morse later said:
"Richeson has made up his mind to
die and he does not" want any delay.
This has been a long story and the
last chapter is being written.
'Richeson is going to die without
holding a grudge against anyone. He
has scarcely ottered a barsh word and
to nja personally and to those who come
in coatact with him. he has again and
again expressed his gratitude."
Was Composed When Answering Question-.
Richeson walked to the electric chair
erect, eye straight ahead until he sat
down. Ten he closed his eyes and
kept them shut until the end.
Seated in the chair he was asked
questions by the Rev. Herbert -. John
son, his spiritual adviser.
Daring his answers, he said:
"God will take care of my soul, and
I forgive everybody."
The last of the questions was:
rAre you willing to die for Jesus's
The reply. In an even, well-modulated
tone, was, simply:
"I am willing to die."
The current applied was 1900, eight
amperes. One application was suffi
cient It was turned on at 12:10.02 and
the prisoner waa declared dead at 12:17.
Laxt Hootj Spent In Song.
When the officials and witnesses of
the execution reached the death cham
ber, after walking through the prison
yard In a pelting rain, they heard
sounding through the walls the strains
of song. It was Richeson and his splr-
Iltuai aovistrra, -i. "-. uu cuap
laln Stebbins. Distinctly audible, as
they dosed, were tne woras:
"For I know whafer befall me, Jesns
doeth all things well."
Richeson left his cell, smiling, at
12:08. Before starting on the death
march, he shook hands with William
A. Morse, his counsel, who at the last
moment had bee admitted as a wit
ness of the execution, and, with the
two .chaplains. Rev. M. J. Murphy, a
Catholic priest being also present
'I Am Ready," He Said.
Then he said:
'I'm ready," and walked on. He was
dressed plainly, in a black cheviot suit,
a frock coat, white vest white shirt
turned down collar and a black bow
tie. with gold studs in his shirt, and
with low black shoes brightly shined.
His head was shaved down the middle.
The party then entered the chamber.
The unfrocked minister appeared as
calm as either of his companions.
Poluoa Sent In a Letter.
Among many letters addressed to
Richeson, which were opened by war

to contain cyanide of potassium. It

killing Ais Linnell. '
Story of Crime. j
The crime for which Clarence Virgil
Thompson Richeson. at the time of his I
a'rest pastor of the Immanuel Church
of Cambridge, was sentenced to die in
the electric chair, was the confessed I
murder of his former sweetheart, 19 '

pupil in the New England Conservatory

Daugherty, commanding the U. S. forces, withdrew his men 200 feet to prevent trouble, bat state rangers C. H. Web

LIKENS FIGHTERS TO
SENATOR RIDICULES REPUBLICANS
DAMON AND PYTHIAS
Was-lagten, D. C- May -1. Senator Stone ef Mhtseurl today carried out
his purpose of addrcx-lnsr the senate on ''the modern Damon and Pytbla- and
correlated subjects pertaining to the current polities."
"Mr. President," he said, "any man having even a meager knotrledse of
ancient lore Trill recall the story of Damon and Pythias and the story of Da
tld and Jonathan. A feiv years -co, the Ameriqan people and the civilized
world Mere given to understand that here la ear own dear country vre had a
reproduction of these glorious traditions of the far distant past.
"We were led to believe that the combined and consolidated spirit of Da

the corpus of Theodore Roosevelt, and that spirits ef David and Pythias had
In like manner, come to rest on the ample bosom of William. Howard Taft.
Thai, la fcapiJj- conjunction, both of thooe old- stories of anelcnt lore and
love were reproduced here In this new world ef ours for the edification and
uplifting of the human raoe." '
BOTH TASTED AXD LIKBD POWER.
Senator Stone, amid laughter, said It had been a ease of "two souls vrith
hut a single thought; two hearts that beat nt one," until "the slimy and poison
ous serpent of ambition crawled across the path they were wnlklnjr and di
vided them. Both had tasted the bitter-sweet ef power and liked It over
much. Both were tempted and both fell'
"So, Instead of pence we had war," the senator continued, "war with
knives and knives to the hilt. As a consequence of this atrocious contest
the country and the world have been treated to a series of spectacular vaude
ville stunts tn politics without a parallel in the history of our country, and
which I devoutly hope will not again be repeated."
Senator Stone referred to senator LoFoIlette's participation In the cam
paign and continued:
"Mr. President, passing over the personal and party aspects of this mis
erable squabble, Is It not truly a sad spectacle -we are witnessing. The-e
world famed Republican leaders have been for months circling the country,
abasing each other like pickpockets In language akin to the vernacular of a
Sshmarkct or even something worse.
"The world outside looks on aghast and the pre and rending public of
all enlightened nations everywhere cxltld-e, cartoon, laugh and tannt."
TAFT IX FIGHT, RELXJCTAXTLY.
To the amusement of the senate, senator Stone read samples of the po
lite exchanges of compliments. Amongthe three Republjenn candidates he said
he must grant thnt president Taft "Innately a gentleman" evidently was re
luctant to enter "this ruffian fight:" He asserted, however, that the last word
la "this black chapter of American history," would be written at Chicago.
"I say last chapter," he added, "because I can not believe that after this
storm of strife and these exposures the American electorate will consent to
return the Republican party to power."
He concluded with a statement that the Democratic candidates were
conducting themselves with a sense of proproery.
