The session of the court today was
a brief one. When it opened. Gillette
again went on the stand.
District Attorney Ward pulled sever

and Gillette identified them as having
been worn by Grace in the factory.

Herkimer, N. Y., Dec. 1. The trial
of Chester Gillette for the murder of
his sweetheart, Grace Brown, practi
cally closed yesterday as far as the
taking of evidence is concerned. Most
of the time was spent by the district
attorney in recalling seve-ral witnesses
in rebuttal. There were no really
striking features in the case outside
of those furnished by the defendant's
own testimony. Gillette went through
the ordeal of cross examination with
out wavering in the slightest degree
in his testimony as to the actual death
scene on Big Moose lake.
( iiatrKur. C'aivnriiiv.
Gillette swore that many things he
said and wrote and which the prosecu
tion took as links in its chain of evi
dence were sin: ply falsehoods concoct
ed for one reason or another and that
many things he had done and that the
piosecution took as indications of guilt,
were merely acts of cowardice.
When Gillette left the witness stand
the defense called eight or ten wit
nesses. Some of these were called to
give their opinions of Gillette's char
acter and reputation. Some testified
his character, was good, but the dis
trict attorney compelled all to admit
tbe-y were not then aware of Gillette's
relations with Miss Brown.
Gillette admitted that he made no
effort to save Grace's life. The prose
cutors said: "Although you swam in
the Pacific at Honolulu and San Fran
cisco, and were known as a strong
swimmer, you swam ashore when the
girl leaped overboard?" Gillette ad
mitted that he did.

WRECK IN THE EAST
Vermont Road Scene of Rear End
Collision Between Two
FOUR KNOWN TO BE DEAD
Two Passenger Cars Stood on End and
Thrown Down a 50-Foot
Vergennes, Vt., Dec. 1. Four per
sons are known to . have been killed
;nd it is feared others lost their lives.
while several were seriously injured,
in a wreck on the Rutland railroad
near here today. A gravel train plow
ed into the rear end of a passenger
train. Two Jiassepsre r cars were wreck
ed and caught fire.
One of the bodies found is believed
to be that of Mrs. W. A. Iiwrence of
Bristol, wife of Deputy Sheriff Law
rence of Addison county. Another of
the bodies is that of a woman, while
the other two found were so badly
charred it is impossible to tell whetn
er they were men or women.
StmiilinK on n Siding;.
A mixed train from Rutland was
taking the siding in order to allow the
southbound mail train to pass. A
heavy gravel train following crashed
into the mixed train, which was com
posed of two passenger cars and ca
boose. The caboose was smashed and
the passenger cars hurled on end, and
then toppled over the edge of a GO foot
embankment, which elrops at an angle,
of 45 degrees to a small breok. The
cars did not fall the entire distance,
however, remaining on the side of the
slope. Thi3 position made the work
of rescue very difficult.
Almost immediately the wrecked car
caught fire and several passengers
were unable to escape from the flames.
The local fire department responded,
but as the station is three-quarters of
a mile from the village and there was
only one hydrant near the scene of
the wreck, the work was greatly de;
layed and hampered.
Firemen and persons living nearby
made every effort to assist the passen
gers and those most seriously hurt
were taken to a farmhouse near the
Colorpt Trnupr on Train.
Among the passengers were 21 mem
bers of the Drury Opera company of
New York, an organization made up of
colored singers "who last filled an en
gagement at Middlebury. All this
groupe has been accounted for but
three members. ' Seven other passen
gers sustained more or less serioils in
juries. Police Chief is Assassinated.

of police of Chopoto was shot and

ers, answer that telephone!"
But the boy heard not. He was home
eating his turkey. The colonel became
even more furious, his yells grew
louder, then his false teeth fell from
his mouth, and the jaws came togeth
er with such force that the jawbone
was broken. I
At first the injury was not consider
ed serious. Later a doctor was sum
moned and he found that the jawbone'
had suffered a compound fracture.

Sensational Testimony Given In
Trial of Head of Union
Chicago. Dec. 1. Sensational evi
ilence was given today in the trial of
Cornelius P. Shea, president of the In

for alleged conspiracy in the team
sters' strike of 1905.

Albert Young, president of the Uni

that Robert Xoren, business agent of
the Garment Workers' union, provided
a fund of $1,500 which was divided be
tween Shea and other labor leaders to
induce them to call a strike of team
sters for the purpose of aiding the gar
ment workers of Montgomery Ward &

months. At the time of the payment
of the money to Shea and others, Xo
ren was, according to Young, treasurer
of the Chicago Federation of Labor.

Young testified in March, 1903. he
was summoned from his home in Joliet

a conference with a number of labor
loaders. The witness declared that
Shea addressed the gathering, saying
if the Chicago Federation of Labor
would raise the coin, he would furnish
the men to aid the strike of garment

He also declared in April following

"What took place at this meeting?'
"Noren had Sl.r.ft0 which was ac

LAND FRAUD WITNESS DEALT IN
Omaha, Neb., Dec. 1. An effort was
made yesterday by the defense of the
Richards-Cemstock land fraud trial in
the United States district court, to
eliscredit one of the government wit
nesses, Irvine D. Hull of Mirange, who
announced himself as a professional
lanel locater. It was claimeel by the de
fense that Hull's testimony was given
in consideration of immunity tfrom
prosecution on charges In connection
with the land fraud cases. Hull ad
mitted having been arrested and bound
over to the grand jury by the United
States commissioner, but said no in
dictment was found against him and
that he was not promised immunity.
Showed nn Aurffnifiit.
Hull's testimony developed an agree
ment between himself and Thomas M.
Huntington to secure soldiers' filings.
Soldiers were to be given $300 for their
land after proving up. Preparatory to
the final proof they were to lease the
land to Comstock and Huntington was
to get $100 for each lease, and out of
this $100 the expenses and Improve
ments were to be paid. When the final
proof was completed the consideration
for each section was to be $400. Then
$100 of this was to go to the soldiers
and the other $300, which included the
lease money to be divided between
Huntington and James Huh, brother of
the witness. ; .

WThile on the stand Hull said he
went to Iowa and got all the declara
tory statements he could at Logan,
Missouri Valley and Magnolia, 20 in
number, and sent them to Huntington
by registered letter.

by wouldbe independent producers.
I)i'tntor of Situation.
Testimony was submitteel whic'i
showed that the combine of the Rio
Grande Western and its allied coal
companies secured control of large
areas of the vast ceial deposits in east
ern Utah; that it owned the only
means of transportation, thus controll
ing the supply on the Utah markets,
and that it was the supreme dictator
of the Utah coal situation.
Armed thugs, it was assert ed, were
hired by ceal companies in Carbon and
other counties to keep off any wouldba
independent producers, and these
thugs played their part well. Shooting
was common during the fights an 1
feuds over the possession of coal lands,
and the courts were laughed at by the
men placed in charge of the coad de
posits. l"Nel Secret Itntea.
The secret rates, too. were de
scribed. Charles Livingstone, a former
employe of the Utah Fuel, asserted
that his company enjoyed a one-half
cent per hundred pounds per mile rat-j
on freight. This rate, which was far
below the regular, tariff rate, 'was en
joyed until August of the present year.
It was applied on freight hauled over
the Rio Grande from points both in
Utah anel Colorado. That there was an
understanding between the Oregon
Short line and the Rio Grande, iht
witness had no -doubt, as lumber
brought from Oregon to rebuild the
trestle after the Sunnyside fire was
billed to Ogden and from there to Sun
