"I tell you that this revolver was placed upon the pillow beside Giberson while he slept, the trigger was pulled, and he was killed. This is a tell-tale exhibit, which, I believe, was left behind as an act of God to capture the murderer. "This is the most cold-blooded, vil lainous, dastardly cowardly murder in this state, and the murderer deserves no sympathy. Even tho. foulest and most criminal thief has some sence of honor, and generally speaking, is not a coward. ' This unfortunate man. Will Giberson, was murdered in his own home while he slept." Mrs- Giberson, described , by the prosecution as a woman of steel nerves, never winced. Of all ' those In the court room she alone seemed unaffected. In his charge. Supreme Court Jus tice Kalisch told the jurors to give the defendant no special consideration because she was a woman. Justice Kalisch aid that it was unnecessary for the state to prove that Mrs. Giberson actually fired the fatal shot. It need prove only that she was an accomplice in the crime. "You can find no other verdict ex cept murder in the first degree, or aoquittal,'' he told the jurors, r 'It. however, you decide to brine in a ver dict of murder, you may add a rec ommendation to give the defendant life imprisonment.

In directing the assignmen of a shipping board vessel the president wrote to Mr. Lasker as follows : "You are familiar with the great work in the near east, which has . been under taken by the American Red Cross and Near East Relief organization. This great work is in response to the prompt ings of the American heart to perform a great service in the hour of extreme emergency. There is not only an im pressive call on the generosity of the American purse and the sacrifice of time on the part of American citizens, but I think there is good reason for us to do everything possible in a governmental way to further this most appealing en terprise.

The only new feature in the political crisis today was the development of dissatis faction on the part of the conservative peers-and the rank and file with the al leged packed character of the proposed Carlton club meeting tomorrow. There ia increasing resentment over the "im itation of Lhe meeting to members of the house of commons and the excSs sion of the conservative peers, it being contended that such a meeting would fail to be representative of the party as a whole. . Moreover, the meeting is regarded as an attempt to forestall the . annual con- lerenco or the conservative party in mid-November; hence the - executive committee of the national unionist as sociation called a special meeting to day, Sir George Younger, chairman of the party, presiding, and unanimously adopted a resolution instructing the committee to summon forthwith an emergency conference of the parti. This emergency meeting is much more likely to reveal the compete extent of the split in the conservative party over the questio nof Mr. Lloyd George's lead- ship than is the Carlton club meeting.

The president, the ' dele gates said, expressed his further behei tha tthe country, in its international relations, should do its utmost for the rest of Uie world. The president greeted the delegates In his study and listened to an address made on their behalf . by Fred B. Smith, chairman Of the conference, who said the conference was interested in two things, enforcement of the eight eenth amendment and the exeroise of America's full duty to the rest of the world. These two subjects were said to have been the basis of the president's re sponse. He was quoted as saying that it had been found difficult to carry out the provisions of the 18th amendment an dthe prohibition enforcement act in some of ks minor details, inasmuch as it was the administration's opinion that the law followed in every respect Uie Sag.

The, 'only report received at prohibition enforcement headquarters said the Em era d had been taken for alleged liquor snuggling while in communication with sliore from a point beyond the three 'iiile limit. The message did not say Specifically., it. is understood, that the Emerald's own boats were plying between ship and shore. It was assumed at the prohibition enforcement bureau that such was the case, however, and that the ship, therefore, fell within the recent govern ment ruling as to operations beyond Am erican territorial waters. The B.-itlsh protest, which wis pr -senl-ed to the state department, is understood to assert that the Emerald'3 boats were not in touch with shore and that there was. therefore, no warrant unde nhe announced policy of the American gov ernment itself for Intjrfer-mce witn the Canadian craft.
