for anal The bahy held l i it chubby ttxt
big silver dollar, and as tbe txiby was chew
ing on it vigorously while it mother waa
looking for a seat every woman In the car
knew Instantly that the hnby was teething.
Ita mother got a seat finally, and the pameu
gera got Interested in the baby and tbe silver
doluw. For a minute nearly tbe whole of the
coin waa tn the baby's mouth, when sudden
ly, with a gasp and with watering eyea, the
pudgy fist pulled out the dollar from the
puckerv orirloe and waved the money reck
lessly tn tbe face of an elderly lady along
side. Tbla performance waa repeated again and
again, and when tbe elderly lady seemed
about to make some demonstration of disap
proval tbe baby's arm waved toward tbe
window and the silver dollar dropped from
ita Angara into the apace between the enr
window and the aeat and atruck the floor of
tbe car witb a plunk. Under tb front of the
long seat the space waa boarded up and the
coin could not be reached.

voice In tremble.

who bad been listening straightened them
eelvea out and began to work tbelr hands
down Into their trousers pocket, and oue
man whispered to another that a collection
should be taken up.
Finally the conductor said if the paseen-
gera didnt mind disturbing themselves be
would get tbe money. So everybody sitting
on tbe side of the car where the dollar was
lost gt up, and the conductor pulled out tbe
entire seat, reached behind It, got the coin,
gave It to the mother, and, arter a good d-al
of difficulty with the arat, pushed it back,

The Merchants Want the Fair.
"While the finance committee has not done
much work, their work ba been taken up by
other with great ancoesa. Mr. Throne,
bat and cap dealer of Chicago, told me In
the Fifth Avenue hotel that all tbe Jobberi
la hi line in New York were making earn
est effort to raise subscriptions, and, bile
they told him they did not care anything
bout tbe fair, be found out that they were
working bard for it, I wa told that II r.
Claflin bad neglected hi business for two
weeks, giving all hit attention to tb fair;
that be personally had raised more money
than tb whole finance committee. Tbe
speed with which tbe subscriptions nre com
ing in you will notice by tbe Chicaro papers,
end they will doubtless raise $.i,(XM,(H It
ia true tbat In soma quarters in New York
no Interest i taken in the fair, but tbe job
ber and retailer are very much in earnest.
New York ha been very alow in getting
woke up, and is not yet thoroughly aroused,
but they are certainly in better ehae than
they were a few weeks ago. Tbey still look
upon It aa prssumptnou that any other city
should think of having tha fair, and tbat

morning these interview were given lu full,
and every paper bad editorials on tbe sub
ject; one or two peper coming out point

oboicn would be St. Lonla. It was a palpa
ble effort to encourage St. Louis in her fight
against Chicago, and will, I think, react
against both cities, as it demonstrates the
fact that a combination of some sort is abso

ment of Che American people through tbelr

is regards! in Washington. Those whom I
met in Washington ail said it was evident
tbat St. Louis wa using every effort to de
feet Chicago, and had no expectations of e
curing tha fair herself. Tb action of St.
Lonis in this mattrr wa not indorsed hy
any representative from the couth end

having cbarg of a department, and e-king
the co-operation of tba Catee. They think
tbia plan, when it I matured, will be na
tional, and so comprebaneiva in every way,
and will captivate tbe congressmen at once
end secure th location of tbe fair at Wash
ington. On tha whole, I think tbe feeling in
Washington I more friendly to Chicago
than New York. Chicago' prospects, on
tb whole, are better to-day than tbey bare
A Xaw Torker'e Opinion.
A New York congressman witb whom I
epoka, but who did not want bis name men

secure the fair, but tbat nothing could be
more disastrous than overconfl leno. There
I hard work ahead of us. While w have
decidedly tb edvantageof th situation now
it will take herd work and skilllul manage

of the situation, I fWI decidedly

Chicago, Nov. 2L The defense In tbe
Cronin case yesterday introduced two fml-
nn witnesses the first thing, the object be
ing to strengthen the alibi they were con
structing for O'Sullivan. Tbe first of thess
was Mis Kate McCormick, a young woman
of about 13, who was pretty much at bome
at Tom Wbslan's cottage bsing a aUter of
Mra Wbelsn and who was at tba house
both on the 4!b and 5th of last May. Sb
at supper there on the 4th and was there
until about 8:30 p. m., when the went out
with Mrs Whelan to a dry goods s tore re
maining until after 10 o'clock, wbt they
war admitted by Minneban, Tbe otbr
parsons at supper tbat nigbt were O'Sulli
van, Brennan, Mulcahey and others of the
men who boarded there Whea they left
O'Sullivan was sitting in the kitchen. When
tbey returned witness said sb had to go to
a O Sullivan's room to get a cot to sleep on,
and saw O'Sullivan In bed with Mulcahey.
She remained at W helau's until 7:30 p m.,Msy
b, and when she lei t there the two Hylands
were there. O'Sullivan was not at home at
that hour. She also said that O'Sullivan
put in torn time in the garden after up
per Saturday night sprinkling the garden.
Tbe cross-examination was devoted princi
pally to showing that there was nothing par
ticular to fix the dates May 4 and 5 in Miss
The Other Feminine Witness.
Mrs. Thomas Whelan, wit of the man
who kept the cot tag at which O'Sullivan
boarded, was the next witness. Her testi
mony corroborated her sister's in every par
ticular. In addition sb said tbat another
woman, Mrs. Rich, was at tbe bouse just
before supper. She had also beard O'Sulli
van talk of tha contract he had made with
Dr. Cronin, and remembered a call tbat
Conklin made on O'Sullivan Sunday May 5,
and also th call of tbe Hylands, and O'Sul
livan going out with them about
10 o'clock. Then sbe testified to
the call of Clancy on tbe
day Cronin's body was found. She beard
tbe conversation and saw th men while
talking. Sbe denied that O'Sullivan showed
any trepidation wbeu Clancy told him that
Cronin's boly had been found, and said tbat
O'Sullivan, when asked to go with Clancy
to identify the body, said he would go it a
policeman called for him, but did not know
Clancy and never saw bim before that day,
and knew no reason why he ahould go
I.aylna; Pipes for Rebuttal.
The cross-examination of this witnest wat
sharp, and her answers were equally so. Tha
state's attorney first tried to mix hr up on
tbe garden sprinkling episode, but made
very little of it; neither could be break her
testimony as to tbe time tbey ate supper.
She denied tbat after the 4th of Ms.y she had
mad it ber business to sit at the kitchen
window and watch the Carlsons. Tbe state's
attorney then laid the train for rebuttal by
asking her what passed between O Sullivan
and a reporter after the dicovry of Cro
nin's b dv. She said that O'Sullivan did
not say be did not believe it was Cronin's
body or that Cronin was dead, and then cor
rect himself by aaying, "I did not mean to
And Mow Boork Wasn't There.
Dropping tbe O Sullivan alibi tbe defense
next took up the case of Bourk, and Matt
Dsnahy, a salooukeeper, swore that Martin
Bourk wa in his saloou from between S aod
7 p. ra.. May 4. until 9 or 10 o'clock. Bourk
said be bad been to a funeral. did William
Conghlin (no relative of Dan) end J. F.
O'Malley.wbo came in with Coughlin. Cross
examination developed tbe fact tbat Dauahy
was a clansman or Camp 2), a fneni of
Bourk, and supplied bim with meals iu jail
at bis own (Danaby's) axneuse. lis did not
peaa of what be knew for some time, and
then first to a lawyer for tbe defenss, be
cause be did not want to be bothered
by reporters and detectives. The
state's ettorney then for tbe purpose
of rebuttelevidently asked Danahy whether
be bad not applied a vile epithet to Dr. Cro
mn. called bim a spy, etc, and tbs witness
wore be did not, declaring in tbe presence
of one of the witnesses, a reporter whom the
Hate's attorney pointed out, that the report
er was drunk tbe day he was in bis saloon.
Danahv'a evidence was corroborate I by
W. F. Cougblin, who saw Bourk at Dana
hy's saloon about 7 p. m.. May 4. but did not
stay long Cross-examination brought out
tb statement tbat after the arrest of Bourk
at Winnipeg, "I met Mr. Danahy one day.
He eked me be says, 'Bill, do you remem
ber wbat night you came into my place aod
ajked me to go lo tbe west side to tbe open
ingf and I said I did, and ba says. 'What
nigbt w itr and I says, 'It wa tbe 4tb of

tbe defense fun L J. F. O' Ms I ley saw a man
in Danaby's saloon th evening of Mav 4, but
could not wear it was Bourk. O'Malley i
cot a clansman now, but bad been four

The defense then began to produce evi
dence in bebatf of John F. Beef, and
John F. Finerty, Mathew P Brady, Jobn
Dwyer, John S. Mullen (a man with Cronin
sympathies!, and M. J. Kenna all swore
tbat tbey never hoard of an "inner circle,"
in tbe Clan na line!, (although tbey ware all
members of th ciau, and most of them of
