10 STOP HE
Chief Davis Wants to Make
It Penitentiary Offence to
JOY EIDERS TO
. FEEL LAW'S HAND
For the purpose of bringing to
bear a concerted action on the part of
the police chiefs of the different cities
of Texas to secure the passage of a
law at the next session of the legis
lature making it a felony for any per
son to take an automobile for any
purpose whatsoever, without the con
sent ol the owner, and also making
tt a criminal: offence for a person to
steal a bicycle, regardless of its
value, police chief I. N. Davis has writ
ten to the police chiefs of Dallas, Fort
"Worth, Houston, Galveston, Waco and
In his letters chief Davis has asked
the police chiefs to supply him with
statistics relative to the number of au
tomobiles taken for joy rides and bi
cycles stolen in their respective cities
and the number of convictions, if any.
The movement to have the joy rider
taking an automobile without the
consent of the 6wner put in a class
with criminals was first put on foot
by chief Davis. The matter was taken
up with the chamber of commerce
through its president, Walter S. Clay
ton, -who promised assistance.
Richard Burgee and Eugene Harris,
of El Paso, elected to the next legis
lature express themselves as being in
favor of such a law.
As the matter now stands, a per
son may take another's automobile for
a joy ride, either damage it or entirely
demolish it, and he is guilty only of
a misdeamenor. Such persons have
been indicted by the grand jury on
a charge of theft over $50, but no con
viction has yet been obtained for the
reason that the intent to steal the au
tomobile could- not be proved.
The law with reference to the taking
of automobiles, according to Mr. Bur
gee, should read that a person tak
ing an automobile for any purpose
without the consent of the owner,
shall be guilty of a crime, and his
punishment assessed at so many years
in the state penitentiary, or where the
offender is under, age so many years la
the reform school. Theft of bicycles,
it was said, should be punished by a
term in the penitentiary regardless of
the value of the bicycle.

Effort of Mrs. Orner's At
torneys to Embarrass Wit
ness Against Prisoner.
TRYING TO THROW
SUSPICION ON HIM
(By C A. Brans.)
Pecos, Tex., Nov. 27. Efforts of the
defence in the case of Mrs. Agnes Orner
are being directed toward an attempt
to show that J. I. Lee could hae given
Liillle Orner the arsenic which caused
her death. For this purpose It has
attributed motives to Lee by attempt
ing to show that he had an -animus for
Mrs. Orner because she would not marry
him. He denied ever having proposed
marriage to her or having made any
improper proposals to her.
Dr. a P. Brown, of El Paso, testified
this morning that the death of the
child had been caused by arsenic poi
soning and that a chemical examina
tion of the stomach of the child, made
by Dr. E. B. Rogers the day following
her death, showed this. He said that
18 or 20 grains of arsenic had been
Robert Brooks, Mrs. N. B. Larock and
Mrs. A. J. Ljase are the witnesses who
will testify at the afternoon session to
day. Brooks is the messenger boy who
took the medicine to the home of Mrs.
Orner and refused to leave it when Mrs.
Orner declined to pay for if. He Is
now employed rn The El Paso Herald
composing room. Mrs. Larock and Mrs.
Luoase lived in the house adjoining the
home of Mrs. Orner and were with her
shortly after the death of her daughter.
They are not expected to tell any new
facts in the case. Telegrams were sent
to Drs. W. L. Brown and 35. B Rogers
and Charles Sherwood, -a clerk at
Primm's cigar store to come here
The Reeves . County Bar association
will hold its annual banquet tonight,
and the El Paso attorneys are to be
present. Joe Nealon is on the program
for a speech.
With the stolidity of an Indian
princess. Mrs. Orner stood in the dis
trict courtroom Tuesday afternoon and
listened to district attorney Wm. Brady
read the indictment charging her with
having caused the death of her daugh
ter, Llllle Orner.
On either side of her sat her attor
neys, while she rested her hands on a
chair in front of her. Her eyelids
drooped and her eyes were half closed,
but there was not the suspicion of a
tear in them nor did her lips quiver,
when, after the charge had been read
and the court asked what was the plea
of the defendant, ska replied In a clear
oice.void of .amy emotlgsi tf am not
guilty;" Ta ase remiaea Iter seat,
back of her attorneys.
Frequently during the afternoon she
leaned forward to whisper to Mr. Ross
and once or twice there was the sus
picion of a smile playing about the cor
ners of her mouth.
Six Pecos women and about 40 men
occupied seats in the main body of the
courtroom all during the afternoon
and all seemed greatly interested In
the testimony of the witness.
The Jnry Selected.
It was exactly 3 oclock (Pecos time)
when J. B. Sullivan, a farmer, a mar
ried man and the father of several
children, took the last seat in the jury
box and the jury was sworn. The other
jurors are: W. D. Prewit, R. E. Reed,
J. R. Chandler, "W. A McWhirter. B. W.
Van Deren. S. M. Prewit. A H. Bugg.
Chas. Manahan. Frank Kelton, J. K.
Webb, Woody Browning jr. Each side
had used 13 challenges, and 101 tales
men had been examined before the jury
At the morning session, judge Isaaks
warned the jurors that they must not
read The EI Paso Herald while em
pounded, because it contained news of
the triaL. It is the only paper repre
sented at the- rial.
The rule was invoked in regard to
witnesses, except the physicians, only
one of whom. Dr. C. P. Brown, of El
Paso, was present, and B. F. Stewart,
.court stenographer at Marfa during the
'second trial. They were permitted to
remain in the courtroom.
J. D. Lee was the first witness
placed on the stand by the state and
he was still on the stand when court
adjourned for the day, shortly after 3
Saw Child in Good Health.
The most important" thing brought
out during the time he was on the
stand was that he had seen Llllle Orner
calnUyenJpying her dinner, apparently
Inthd best of health, at 1 oclock on
February 19, 111, and that at 6- oclock
the evening of the same day, he saw
her lying dead on the bed in their home,
at 608 North Ochoa street.
In response to questions, Lee testified
that the mother had remarked at din
ner time that she did not think Lillie
would live long and gave as a reason
that the child was "puny." He said that
Mrs. Orner and her child had lived at
the house about one week and five
days and that Mrs. Orner had paid him
no rent. However, he further said that
he had two diamonds belonging to Mrs.
Orner. He said that Chas. Owen and
R. L. Nichols had signed a release of
these diamonds in his favor. This re
lease, he said, was signed after he had
attempted to .have Mr. Owen and Mr.
Nichols prosecuted for entering the
ALMIGHTY GOD, our heavenly Father, Thou great Kuler of the universe, by whom our nation hath been established
and preserved in union; we bring to Thee, this day, our most hearty thanks, and would abundantly utter the
memory of Thy'great goodness toward ns. We believe it is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and that
praise is comely, therefore, we would not forget Thy benefits, 0 God. We would sing unto Thee, today, because Thou hast
dealt bountifully with us as a people. Thou hast satisfied us with good things, and Thy wonderful kindness has been great
, toward us.
"We thank Thee for Thy favor shown unto our fathers and Thy faithfulness unto us their children "The lines have
fallen unto us in pleasant places and ours is a goodly inheritance." We thank Thee for peace, prosperity and plenty.
"Surely Thou hast not dealt so with any other nation." We thank Thee for our stable government, for just and equitable
laws, for the increasing spirit of true democracy, for our free and powerful institutions, for great and good men for all
those things, 0 Lord, that have given us an honorable position among the nations of earth, we. thank Thee.
We thank Thee for the increasing spirit of independence in political affairs; for mutual respect and service based on
conscience; for unrecorded integrities, fidelities, joys, and spiritual victories; for faith in our country's errand, her character
and destiny, her honesty of purpose and determination to be just
And we thank Thee, 0 God, "not only for the good things of Thy providence, but the better things of Thy grace as well.
For the inestimable love of Thy sob, our Redeemer; for all blessings and privileges that have come to us through the re
ligion of Jesus Christ We thank Thee for home and all its tender affections; for friends and all the gentle friendships
that bless our lives; for little children, their sweetness and beauty.
We thank Thee for the schools and colleges of the land that are doing so much for the mental, moral and physical
welfare of the rising generations. We thank Thee for the church, its ordinances, its sacraments, its fellowships, and all the
help that comes to us from it in so many ways. For all those forces in our country, 0 Lord, that make for the moral and
spiritual uplift of the nation, we thank Thee.
We praise Thy name, 0 God, for our fair city so favorably situated in this great southwestern section; for the many
marks of prosperity in the past, and the abundant promise of greater things in the future. For blessings new, and blessings
old; for faith and hope through all our days; "for freedom that has set us free and made us sons and heirs of Thee," 0 Lord,
we thank Thee. Keep Thou the commonwealth beneath Thy care, and guide o'ur state and city according to Thy will, and
Thine shall be the glory and power, praise and thanksgiving, now and forever more. Amen.

Telling how he got the diamonds, he
said: "Mrs.- Orner asked me to get
them out of pawn and gave me the tick
ets. I took them out. paying $27.59 for
one and J 16.50 for another. She said I
could keep them as security for the
rent she owed me. Later Mr. Owen
and Mr. Nichols entered my house, at
608 North Ochoa street, and took every
thing there. They took not only Mrs.
Orner's things, but mine, too. They
took all the dishes and did not even
leave me a frying pan to cook with."
It was later admitted by Lee that he
had rented the house to Mrs. Orner and
the men were her attorneys.
In speaking of Mrs. Orner's treatment
of the child, he said: "She was a child
of about 11 years, bright, very pretty
and appeared healthy, bhe had rosy 1
cneeas. airs, urner wmppeamer. x 09
lleve all'children should be corrected and
need correcting, but I think she
whipped her too hard. She used a
switch about a yard long and about as
thick as my finger."
Lee, who was injured in El Paso,
where he had been employed as a line
man for the electric railway company,
is compelled to walk with a cane.
He also told of Mrs. Orner's threaten
ing to whip the child because she asked
for popcorn one night when they were
all down town for supper and a visit
to the moving picture shows.
Jurors All Married.
All of the Jurors in the- case are mar
ried and an but W. A. McWhirter have
Judge Isaacs was so anxious that the
jurors should understand the differ
ence between circumstantial evidence
and direct evidence that he metaphor
ically killed J. F. Ross, one ot the at
torneys for the defence, five times dur
ing the afternoon, in is explanation
of circumstantial evidence. His ex
pansion was: "Suppose Wm. Brady,
Mr. Ross and I Sfeould go on a hunting
trip. Mr. Brady and I return witfcom
Mr. Soss. A few days later, or some
tune later, the bddy of Mr. Ross is
f found. We bad made no explanation of
his disappearance. That would be cir
cumstantial evidence against us, be
cause no one had seen us kill him.
Would you convict on such testimony?"
Some said they would and seme said
they would aot. However, it brought
home the point that he desired.
Mrs. Orner Not Disturbed.
There are many interested spectators
at the trial. Among them yesterday
were four women of Pecos. They went
to Mrs. Orner, when recess had been
granted far ffve- minutes, and one
them patted her on the bade and al
spoke words of encouragement.
She did not appear to be in tne least
disturbed by the examination of tales
men. Once, when I leaned over tn ask
her attorney the name of a talesman.
-she said: "If you cannot say something

equipped with horses, saddles and am
munition, according to a rancher who
arrived in El Paso Wednesday with this
report The forces of Salazar arrived
at the Booker ranch some time Monday,
the rancher says, and established his
camp there. Rojas, with another force
of men, is thought to be south of Guz

it is not known whether he will stove

forces to the south.

The National Railways office at Mex

Powers Will Settle Question
of Occupation of Albania

TENSION IN BALKAN
CRISIS IS RELIEVED
SERVIANS DEMAND THE
WITHDRAWAL OF TROOPS.
Belgrade. Servia, Nov.
The withdrawal of the Servian
troops from the field of opera
tions in Turkey is demanded by
the newspapers so they may be
available to defend the Servian
frontiers against attack.
London, England, Nov. 27. The fact
that the European powers have at last
realised that they were drifting toward
certain conflict tends to relieve the
immediate tension of the international
political tangle into which the Balkan
situation has now developed.
It is now asserted that Austria-Hungary
is prepared to agree to the ques
tions concerning the future of Albania
and the desire of Servia for a port on
the Adriatic sea being settled in con
nection with an other issues caused by
the Balkan war, as was recently pro
posed by premier Asquith. If this change
of the Austro-Hungarian attitude should
be confirmed, the dangerous pressure
at present existing will be removed.
Diplomats declare they see plenty of
methods of meeting the requirements of
Servia without seriously inconvenienc
ing Austria-Hungary or buying the
formula of "Albania for the Al
banians.' Even the occupation of the port of
Duraszo by tbe Servian troops will not
necessarily change the international
situation, as it is a long step from tha
present occupation to permanent reten
tion of the port by the Servians, which
