guilty of embezzling $24,000 from the
Big Four railway, was formerly local
treasurer of the road in Cincinnati
and was well known in railroad cir

charge helped to free Cooke, Judge
Hunt declaring the testimony of Mrs.
Ford and of Warriner only masle them
equally guilty if Cooke were guilty.
Cooke was the last of those indict
ed in connection with the $643,000
shortage of Charles L. Warriner, Cin
cinnati treasurer of the road, to be
tried. First Warriner, indicted on nu

charging the embezzlement of $5,000.
He was sentenced to six years in
prison. I

headed by Madero there broke out a
revolt against Mexican authority in
Lower California and one of those who

much of a struggle the weakened au

Venerable Kentuckian Who Recently
Celebrated the 78th Anniversary
of His Birth Has Had a
Brilliant Career.

Ing of the Sherman law in the Stand

brought this veteran jurist prominent
ly before the public. The justice was
78 years old the otier day and is still
strong and rugged, with every mental
faculty unimpaired. lie has been oi
the Supreme court more than a third
of a century. During 33 years and 6
iiontlis lie has absented himsulf from
the ben(ch less than 20 days. le was
born in loyle county, Kentucty, Juie

him Noveiber 29, 1877.
Twcnty years ago justice llarlan
purchased a half of a city block on a
11111 overlooking Washington, and
there built a flue, old-fashioned, rain
bling home of brick, with wide
porches. When he took possession an
unobstructed view of the city below
and the absence of noise and the com
motion of city life made the spot ideal
for the home of a justice.
Although lie Is in the midst of the
city today, he manages to keep about
the house the atmosphere of the coun
try. The trees which he plantei in
the side, front and rear yards havn
grown to maturity. A great hedge

he evidences of the city on all sidles,
the piivacy of a country home is mna in
