against the live prisoners is robbery. Kob

The maximum penalty in Michigan is
imprisonment at hard labor for life.
Dominick Hogan was the agent of the ex
press company and the tTu.000 w hich was
stolen was in his charge. If he was com
pelled by fear to relinquish possession of
the money, he was robbed and was not
himself a robber. On the other hand, if
he was, as is charged, a party to the theft
and feared no injury, then no highway
robbery was committed and none of the
prisoners can be convicted of a more se

search for tue money is conducted by the

It is asserted that if the money ever left
New York at all it was lost between there
and St. Louis. The safe was shipped from
New York orer a week ago aud came by
St. Louis instead of by the usual southern
route. Messenger Crowley and Guard
Korsendoffer, on the run from here to New
Orleans, have been subjected to severe ex
amination, but both are now attending to
their duties. The most accepted theory is
that the money never left New York.

The con veot ion is held in the Art palace.
Mayor Harrison delivered the welcoming
address and aske l the bankers to be a lit-
tie easier on the borrowers. The report of
j the president wa-s distinctly against state
i banks, and the cuitseof the depression this
I year was stated rs directly due to the pur
, chase clauses of the Bland aud sn-c.illed
! Sherman laws, which had destroyed cotiti
t ilence in our mot ey in Kurope. led to the
I withdrawal of European capital and lifer
lo the boarding of their savings by the
people of this country, thereby crippling
. the industries of the country.
Comptroller E kels marie the principal
speech of the day It was largely on the
lines of the one hi made at a banquet here
' recently. He criticised the silver uu-n
for blocking the wheels of legislation. The
' present depression was due to the people
J losing contideuce in the batiks and with
drawing within two months $191.ohd,uj
from national harks and an equal amount
from state, savin;, s and private ones. The
bankers of the lountry, he said, should
gather some lessons from the trouble, and
the lesson be euli rged upon was for hanks
( to prepare for evil when it was not p;es
(ent;:u other words to be always rvady
for trouble. Competition for liusip.e-s had
carried many of taeiu to the danger point
in accept iug the paper of speculative en
terprises, and bt cause of that many of
them were not as veil prepared w hen the
ktorin burst as they should have been.
I Comptroller Ei kels was followed by
George A. Butler president of the Na

he advocated the lepeal of the law rtqu.r

other officers commanding brigades; nor
did I do so. He took his chance like
every one else, and as I reported to you
