NOTICE TO CONTESTANTS ElIU CARTER WARXS CERTAIN DELE GATES TO PHESEXT THEIR CLAIJIS. 'Action of the Xeir Jersey and Tennes- aee Democratic Convention ! Former for Sound 3Ioney. ' I DETROIT, Mich., May 7. An animated fight over the money question was the most striking feature of the Michigan Republican convention to-day. It resulted in squelching both the gold plank offered by the majority and the silver, plank submitted by the mi nority of the resolutions committee and the substitution therefor of the money plank of the Minneapolis platform of 1892.. McKinley was indorsed most unequivocally, and the delegates were strongly .instructed In his favor. Four delegates at large were elected, two of them without contests.; I). M. Ferry was .chosen chairman of the State central committtee, but it Is not certain that he will accept the post, both himself and Gen eral Alger, whose name was also presented, having declined tht honor In advance. 'As the convention was assembling In the Auditorium at noon to-day Jt.was announced that the Hon. 'Chauncey M. Depew was In the city. The delegates applauded the an nouncement and appointed a committee con sisting of Governor Luce, Congressman Wil liam Alden Smith and A. M. Henry, to in vite Dr. Depew to address the convention. Sir. Depew was wlUly cheered. He made a characteristic . address, reviewing the tri umphs of the Republican party and picturing the alleged sad results of the Democratlc Sritlshi policy. The conduct of affairs by ihe Democracy,fc,Sald Mr. Depew, had been characterized by "incompetency, idiocy, big Leadedness and inability to run a great ma chine." There was, however, a period in the toUtory of every nation -when the fool-killer sleeps."- On the currencx question the speaker asserted that the second principle necessary to the prosperity of the country 13 that its, currency mu3t be of the best mon ey of the world. He had Just met many of the people of the silver States. They said they were for free silver, but they must have protection laws, or they could not live. The Republican party would lose no sUver State because the people knew that If they defeated Republicanisms, they would lose the prelection which was the breath of their life. Tne mention of McKinley in a list of distingu'-nei living Republicans ,was cheered with, mat enthusiasm. The convention was formally called to ordirLY A. W. Smith, of Adrian, in the absence of the State chairman. Senator Mc Mill.m. After prayer, Colonel O. A. Janes, ci Hillsdale, was Introduced as temporary chairman, lie made a ringing Republican speech and in closing predicted that whether Its ltader te one of the many "favorite tens,' or Allison, or Reed, or William Mc Kinley." the Republican party will in No vember march to certain victory. After appointment of committees on cre dentials organization and resolutions, the convention took a recess utKil 2:30. GREETING FROM HOOSIER3. It was after 3 o'clock when the convention was again called to order. Telegrams of greeting were read from the California and Indiana conventions announcing Instructions for McKinley in both. The temporary or ganization was made permanent and the resolutions committee was given, further time, tho money plank discussion having delayed it3 progress. The election of delegates at large was proceeded with and Gen. It. A. Alger, of Detroit, and Thomas J. O'Brien were unani mously chosen. For third delegate at large thcro were nominated John Duncan, of Calumet, and Perry Hannah, of Traverse City. Atter the vote by counties had been pju-t;aily taken Mr. Hannahs name was tt;j torarily" witndrawn and the ballot of tU-s convention went to Duncan. . Mark S. iirewcr. oi fontiac, ana Frank W. Gilchrist, of Alprna, were the leading contestants for fourth delegate at large. Brewer won on ll.e second vote l.y counties. The right of the convention arose over the currtney plank of the platform. The majority report, read by ex-Congressman Hyron )l. Cutcheon, asserts unswerving lldl ity of he protective tariff principle, and insists on the repeal of the present . 'un wise, un-American tariff act." It demands te-enactment of the McKinley law, with whatever modifications present conditions may require, anil commends the principle of reciprocity. It alsp declares for a revival of protection to ship owners to encourage car rying goods in American bottoms, and ex presses sympathy with the Cuban insurgents in their .struggle for liberty. The national delegatesvarts instructed "to use all honor able meaiv to secure the nomination of Wil liam McKinley so long as his name shall be before thd convention.' The financial plank was as Tollowa: "We are unyielding and uncompromising in our demands for Found "and hone at money. Wc are In favor of the use of gold and silver and paper dollors in;our currency, all to be maintained at a parity as to their purchasing and debt paying power. We are epposcti to any provision that will invite depreciation, of any portion of our currency and. therefore, we are opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of Fiiver by this coun try alcne under present condition.?, and we believe that such a course would destroy the parity of and contract the currency." A SITD.STJTCTi: PLANK. S. W. Hopkins and W. H. Smith, of the committee, presented a m'nority substitute, as follows, part being quoted from the na tional platform of 1SE1: Thf American people, from tradition and interest, favor liimf-tuilUm, and the Repub lican party, demands the us of both gold and silver as standard money, ana demands that ail dollars, whether of gold, silver or paper, shall be of full legal-tender, possess ing full and equal purchasing and debt paying power, thereby having a parity of value, and to that end wc demand a purely American tvsttni of mcney, based on gold and silver, without advantage to either at the mints cf this goverrment. We demand that all iapr r.irney usued by the govern ment shall d redeemable in gold or silver at he option of the government. "We are opposed to the retiring of the jrreenbacks, the money of the people, the av!or of the Union, the money favored by Lincoln. "We are opposed to the issuance of interest-bearing bonds In times of peace and we condemn the policy of Grover Cleveland and John 5. Carlisle in contracting the sale of government bonds, thereby taxing the. peo ple' to benefit a foreign syndicate ten mil lions of dollars the profits accruing to it at the expense of the people." Several delegates supported the substitute while many of the gold delegates were e,i outing "Time," and demanding a vote. After considerable confusion, T. W. Crissy, of Midland, moved to substitute the curren cy declaration of the Minneapolis platform of 1K2 for both the committee'. reports on the money question. The motion prevailed amM cheers. The remainder of the majority resolutions were adopted. Alternate delegates at large were then chosen follows: C. 8. KeLsey. Rattle C,::j; ll:r.ry A. Haigli, Detroit; Geo. IL Kemof, Chelsea; Isaac C. Washington (col ored). Port Huron. J. C. Gray, of Kallaska, and F. W. Gilchrist, of Alpena, were se lected presidential electors. The contest for chairman for the State central committee was between two unwill ing candidates, both of whom had declined the honor. They were General R. A. Alger and Dexter M. Ferry, of Detroit. Mr. Ferry, who is now in California, won the uncov ered honor and It Is believed he will be in duced to accept. The convention concluded shortly after o'clock. All the districts which have selected dec- gates have indorsed McKinley or instructed tor aim. JERSEY DEMOCRATS. Delegates Elected Yesterday Divided for Itamell and Pattlnon. TRTvNTON. N. J., May 7. The Democratic State convention met to-day, and after a struggle elected the -four slated candidates for delegates at large to the national conven tion at Chicago, as follows! .United States Senator James Smith, jr., of Eisex county, ex-United Slates Senator Rufus Blodgett, cf Monmouth, ex-State Chairman Allan L. Mc Dermott, of, Hudson, and ex-Judge Albert Tallman, of Gloucester. The election of six teen district delegates was also ratified. The notable feature of the convention was an ef fectual effort to stampede the delegates in favor of ex-Safator Frederick Marsh, of Union county, as one of the delegates at large agiinst .Mr. Blodgett, who was one of the four on the slate agreed upon by the party leaders In the morning. Allan Mc Dermott was the one leader who stood out against the slate, and when the voting -was completed, and before the result was an nounced, he was on the" floor leading the ef fort to stampede : the convention and de nouncing Blodgett as a traitor to his party. MeDermott has never forgiven Blodgett for having accepted an election as Unite 1 States Senator, in 1SS7, at the hands of a combina tion of Republicans and bolting Democrats, which defeated the late Governor Akbett; the Democratic caucus ' nomi nee. McrDermott was closely affiliated with Governor Abbett, both politically and personally. The effort to break the slate only, resulted in throwing the convention into the wiliest confusion ior about ten min utes. Mr. .Marsh got 413 out of votes. Ex-Judge Carrow, of Cumden, was also put forward by the slate smashers as the rep resentative of the younger Democracy, but he also fell outside of the breastworks. The platform adopted declared strongly lor a gold money standard, and warmly Indorsed the administration of President Cleveland. The .fact that Mr. Cleveland has not ex pressed himself as willing to accept the nomination was the only tning that prevent ed an effort to instruct tfie delegates for his? renomlnation. The Cleveland sentiment in the convention was strong, and the -effort might have proved successful had it been made. Wo effort was made to instruct the delegates, but much enthusiasm was evoked by ttie chairman's mention in his speech of the name of ex-Governor Rusat 11, of Massa chusetts. Among the delegates from the southern portion of the State the sefitiment Is largely for ex-Governor Paulson, of Penn sylvania. The platform's declaration on the currency question fellows! . "We are in f jLVor of . a Arm, unvarying maintenance of the present gold standard. We are opposed to the free coinage of silver at any ratio, and to the compulsory purchase of silver bullion by the government. We be lieve that tfca interests of the people demand that the earnings, of trade, agriculture, man ufacture end commerce, and especially wages of labor, should be paid in money of the greatest intrinsic value and of the high est standard adopted by the civilized na tions of the world. We are. therefore, un alterably opposed to all devices and schemes for the debasement of our currency. "We believe that the foderal government should be divorced from the business of banking. We. therefore, demand the repeal of all laws authorizing the Issue or reissue of legal-tender or treasury notes by the gov ernment; they should form no part of the currency of the people. We favor the enact ment, by Congress of such legislation as will Insure a banking currency ample in volume for all the needs of business, absolutely se cure from every contingency and at all times redeemable in gold." TEXXESSEE DEMOCRATS. They Nominate R. L. Taylor for Gov ernor and Demand Free Silver. NASHVILLE Tenn., (May 7. The largest Democratic State convention ever held in Tennessee has met and adjourned. It .was a free silver convention from start to finish. Fully 3,500 delegates and visitors were in attendance. Nothing of importance wa3 done until about 9 o'clock to-night, when a vote on contested delegation reports showed that the free silver men proposed to grant no quarter to the handful of sound-money delegates. A. B. Woodward, of Fayetteville, and Columbus March Banks, of Chatta nooga, were chosen electors for th& State at large. Senators Isham G. Harris and W. B. Bate. E. W. Carmack, of Memphis, and T. M. McConnell, of Chattanooga, were chosen delegates from the State at large to Chi cago. The district delegates chosen to-day were accepted by the convention. The nlat form contains a strong free-silver plank a3 follows: "We demand a restoration of the money of the Constitution by law providing for the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver as full legal tender money at the ratio of 16 to 1 regardless of the action of any other nation." The platform demands laws. State and na tional, making gold and silver legal tender for all debts and prohibiting contracts dis criminating against either, the repeal of 10 per cent, tax cn issues of State banks, tariff for revenue only, an locome tax. The ad ministration of President Cleveland is not mentioned find enly referred to by infer ence. Ex -Governor Robert L. Taylor was nominated for Governor by acclamation. IX REGARD TO COXTESTS. Statement by Chairman Caxter, of the Republican Xntlonal Committee. WASHINGTON. !May 7. Senator Carter, chairman cf the national Republican commit tee, to-day gave out the following: "The members of the Republican national committee are requested to meet at the Southern Hotel, in the city of St. Louis, on Wednesday-, the 10th of June, at 12 o'clock noon, for the purpose of preparing the tem porary roll of membership and aeslgnating temporary officers for the convention, and for. the transaction of such other business1 as may require the action of the commit tee.

Recalled aa a Witness in the Jackson Cnsc, He Denies Ills Boasts of Illicit Relations. TOO VILE FOB FEMALE EARS W03IEX" ORDERED OtT OF COURT WHILE WOOD WAS QUESTIONED. Xegfo Courtesans Testify to Visits at Their Resorts by the Prisoner, Scott Jackson. NEW EVIDENCE CREEPS IN DEFEXSB UNWITTINGLY GIVES COL. NELSOX AX OPPORTUXITY. Attorneys Crawford and Nelson Apol ogise for Their Quarrel and De clare Friendship Special to the Indianapolis Journal. NEWPORT, Ky., May 7. The fifteenth day of the great trial of Scott Jackson was marked this morning by the smallest crowd In the history of the trial. The time has come when even Jackson Is not anything of an attraction, for lfttle attention is paid him even when handcuffed o jailer Bltzer. The prisoner Is holding up, with no slgn3 of either physical or mental weakness. His demeanor Is the same in tl:e time of victory or defeat. When his care looked bright and Colonel Crawford was crowding the prose cution hard. Jackson sat still and looked on placidly.' Now, when ais case looks darker than it ever did before, hi retains his even temperament. There nas been no show of anger, affection or other characteristics of a humzn being. He is th? t'.'ime Scott Jackson who was arrested mny weeks ago. There has been little change. Among the first to arrive In the court room .Thursday were Mr. and Mrs. Bryan and Mr. Frank Bryan. Soon after their arrival Professor and Mrs. Edwin Post and Mrs. Dr. Lewis came in and toOk seats about the table reserved for the attorneys for the defense. Jackson came into court a moment later, and took his usual seat beside his shier. The feature of the Jackson trial to-day was .' the public reconciliation of Crawford and Nelson In the presence of the court. Crawford's fine of 525 was then remitted. "What do I think of the case up to date?" repealed Crawford, the lawyer for Soott Jackson. Thursday afternoon. "I am con fident that that jury will return a verdict of acquittal. I am as sure of it as I am that I stand here." He spoke with great earnestness. Attorney Nelson appears equally confident of a verdict of guilty. Five witnesses in the forenoon and two in the afternoon were used to strengthen the proof that George H. Jackson identified Walling in the Hamilton county jail and two were used to corroborate the story of his wonderful midnight drive with the mur derers and their victim. All other evidence tended to break down the character of Scott Jackson, the prisoner. Three negro prosti tutes were brought to court from Cincinnati, one of whom identified Jackson, and before the court could forbid she blurted out that Jackion had been acquainted with her since the 1st of December. Will Wood was brought out by the com monwealth to rebut some of Scott Jack son's testimony and this gave tho defense opportunity to get In the affidavits of Dr. G. E. Hunt, of Indianapolis, and Ohmer Newhouse, of Greencastle, as to Wood's boas of his illicit intimacy with Pearl Bry an. By a corresponding false step the de fense opened the door for the commonwealth to restore evidence by Chief Deltsch and Mayor Caldwell of damaging admissions of Scott Jackson, which were ruled out early In the trial. It looks now as If testimony in the case would be closed to-morrow. It can hardly go to the jury before Monday night. It was decided to-day that the court would take a few days' recess before beginning Walllng's trial. KISSED AND MADE UP. , The proceedings began with a grand love feast, in which Colonel Crawford and Col onel. Nelson were the star actors. When Judge Helm opened court on Thursday morning attorney Crawford arose and said: "In' my excitement and worry Saturday I made a threat In this court which was Im proper. I understand1 that Colonel Nelson had a statement to make at the time, which he could not consistently make after the threat. I want to say now, in the presence of the court and of Colonel Nelson, that I am sorry for what I said." Colonel Nelson was on his feet In an in stant.. "The threat which was. made drove me to : silence on this subject," he said. "If I had made any explanation before it would have been misconstrued by the public. What I said Saturday concerning Colonel Crawford was spoken only In pleasantry. I added at the time that I was joking, but I understand that the gentleman did not iitar me. I have known Mr. Crawford's family for twenty years, and I want to ray that no man stands higher professionally and socially than he." That's all right." said Colonel Crawford, and he walked across to Colonel Nelson. The two attorneys ehcok hands. "You have dose the manly thing." said . Judae HelM. and he ordered the trial of Scott Jackron to proceed. At the conclusion of the pretty scene Col onel Nelson said he would call as the first witness W. F. Trent. Trent, who is a col ored man, testified that he lived in Lebanon. O., but was In Cincinnati on the night of Jan. 31. He saw the Caldwell Guards drill on that night and talked with George Jackson cn that night. He said he went down to see Jackson about 9 o'clock. On cross examina tion he admitted that he did not know that the guards were the Caldwell Guards. Wit ness was then excused. Lieut. Louis Renkert was then recalled by the prosecution and questioned by Colonel Nelson. "Were you at the jail at any time when George H. Jackson identified Scott Jack son?" "Yesr, sir." Tell us about W." , "Well, about thirty or forty men were arranged on the second floor of the jail. I was downstairs with George Jackson and when they were ready I brought him up and told him to pick out his man. He parsed three or four men before he came to Walling. He went past Walling and then came hack and looked at him for fully a minute. Then he said: I think this is tho man. He then ; wan ted to hear Walling talk and when .Walling talked he asked for the cap, and the cap was put on Walling and the negro then identified him as -the man who sat by him on the cab. He then started in to identify the other man. He walked pat Scott Jackson and then stopped and talked to a Jail guard. When the guard talked Gcor?e Jackson said he was not the man. Later, after standing by Jackson for some time and hearing his voice, he identified him."- THE FATAL DRIVE. "Did you go over the route to Fort Thomas iWith George Jackson?" : VYes, sir." "Was George Jackson shown the way or directed where to- drive?" . "No, sir." "Tell us about the ride." "We left the Cl-ty Hall in a two-horse sur rey. Jackson drove to the Newport bridge, jthen zigzag through the western part of Newport till we got out to the LIcklnj pike. We then drove on out till we cans to a pretty good pike. When we got to Fort Thomas we all went into a place to get warm. Then Jackson started out to show us the place where he stopped the carriage cn the -Friday night "He went up along the street railroad till ho came near the Lock farm. He saw a rail off the fence at that point and said he thought it was the place he stopped the car riage, but was not sure When we started home he picked out the ' pot where he stopped on the fatal night from a big rock he positively remembered." "Were you on the corner of George and Elm streets Sunday night, Feb. 11V "Yes, sir." Who was with you?" "George It. Jackson." "Who else beside Mm?""" "Mr. Eggleston, of the Commercial Ga zette, the city editor of the Tribune, a re porter and I think Mr. Chamberlain, of the Associated iTess." It could be plainly seen' that Colonel Nel son was about to bring out the story of Gecrge Jackson recognizing the rattle of the Mullen cab, ' which was driven up the street at that time,' and Colonel Crawford objected to the questions, holding that the prosecution was offering new evidence in re buttal. Judge Helm quickly sustained the objection, knowing what Colonel Nelson was going to prove. Colonel Nelson then signified his intention of arguing the question and the Jury retired. He held that the truth ought to be known; that it was an important cir cumstance touching on the credibility of the witne.3, whom the defense have sought to attack, and that under such circumstance the evidence was competent in rebuttal. Judge Helm after Colonel Nelson's argu ment was inclined to side with the prose cution and made a statement to that effect. Colonel Crawford then said that the prose cution was endeavoring to go into new mat ter in order to bolster up their witness, that the evidence was not in rebuttal, and that Jackson had two weeks to make visits to Mullen's stable and hear the alleged rattle. In the midst of Colonel Crawford's argu ment Colonel Nelson withdrew the question and turned the witness over to the defense for cross-examination. The jury then came back in court and Colonel Crawford began the cross-examination. LECTURING IN A MUSEUM. "Do you know a colored man by the name of Underwood?" "Yes, sir." . "Didn't he have a three days' leave of ab sence in order to do detective work on this case?" "I don't know, sir, I am on duty at night." "Isn't George Jacksora telling his story In a museum In Cincinnati?" Colonel' Nelson objected to the question. 4 want to tell you," said Colonel Craw ford,, "that we want to show that this man Jackson is an unmitigated fake" Colonel Nelson "Wo withdraw the objec tion." Lieutenant Renkert said he didn't know of Jackson being in the museum to hia own knowledge. "Didn't you see pictures of him in front of the museum?" "Yes, sir." "Were there any other prisoners in the circle of men at the Jail when George Jack son Identified Scott Jackson?" "I don't know." "Did anyone on that occasion call out, Jackson, step out here? " "No sir." . "Did George Jackson identify Scott Jack son the first time be heard his voice?" "No, not the first time?" . "Didn't Mr. Motz, .who carried the lan tern on the trip to Fort .Thomas, go in front of the procession, most of the time?" "Yes sir." " What time did you .'get back to the city hall In Cincinnati?". "About 6 o'clock." . "Now, when Jackson finally stopped and pointed out the place where he 6aid Scott Jackson and Walling climbed the fence, wasn't there . a high . embankment on the side of the road?" "Yes sir." Witness was then excused, and W. H. Eg gleston. city editor, of the Commercial Ga zette, called by the prosecution. Mr. Eg gleston could not .be found, and Mr. John B. Chamberlain, of the Associated Press, was called. He was questioned bv Colonel Nelson. m , "What do you know -of the identification of Jackson and Walling by George Jack son '- "Well, I think it was. Sunday night. I went up into the corridor of the Jail, where I found a lot of men formed in a curved line. Among them were Jackson' and Walling. George Jackson was brought up. He came in and looked at each man. Then ho came rapidly back the line and stopped in front of Walling, and after looking at him, said, I think this is the man. I would be sure if I heard him speak. . Walling spoke, and he then Identified Walling. Then he was told to identify Jackson, and after looking over the crowd he. said, after Jackson had spo ken, that Scott Jackson was. the man he had seen in the cab." TRUSTY STILL MISSING. Witness was then excused, and Colonel Nelson 6t the court room in a furor of laughter by calling for William R. Trusty. Sheriff Plummer carried out the joke by yelling- out for Trusty, at the top of his voice, but Trusty evidently out of hear ing distance.' ' William L. Rosenberg, of the German pa per Tageblatt, was the next witness called. He told the story of the identification of Jackson and. Walling . by 'George Jackson. He said nothing was said or done to indi cate to George Jackson the identity of Jackson or Wailing . On cross-examination by Colonel Craw ford Rosenberg got away off the track and told the id story of. what Jackson said and did when Colonel Deltsch showed the pris oner the bloody valise. Witness said he was looking at Scott Jackson closelv during the time of the iden tification by George Jackson at the JaiL "Now, it you look at Jackson intently, couldn't that have given George Jackson an idea whom to identify?" "No, sir; 1 think not.".. "Now, if you were looking at Scott Jack son so intently, you didn't see George Jack son all the time?" "Oh. yes; I. saw them all." Witness, after some further questioning, was excused. William L. Finch.. a reporter, was then re called by the . prosecution and asked about the identification of Jackson and Walling by George Jackson.'. Finch told of the iden tification, stating that . most of .the men in the circle had overcoats on, as did Jackson and Walling.. Mr. Finch said he saw no action or heard no word spoken that would Identify Jackson and . Walling to George Jackson. Colonel. Crawford examined the witness. "Did George Jackson say anything about Scott Jackson's complexion?" "Yes sir." "He 'didn't say, did he. how he saw Jack son's complexion that dark night of Friday, Jan. 31?" "No. sir; I believe he said later that he saw Jackson in the electric light." "Did you write an account of the Identifi cation In vourtfaper?" "Yes sir " "Was it published as you wrote it?" "Yes, sir; I think it was." WILL WOOD'S FILTHY TALK. Will Wood, who had been waiting two days In the witness room, was called to the stand, and there was a revival of Interest, which had been lagging during the morning. "Did you ever write a letter to Scott Jackson to aid you In getting rid of an illegitimate child of Penrl Bryan?" "No, sir; I never did." "Did you ever visit the Bryan residence by yourself at any time?" Colonel Crawford objected to the question and Judge Helm sustained he objection. "Did you ever write Jackscn a letter In which you urged him to send you medicine for the purpose of causing an abortion?" "No, sir." "Did you ever write to Jackson that you had had illicit relations with Pearl Bryan T' "No, sir; I did not. No girl in Greencastle had a better reputation than Miss Bryan before she met Scott Jackson." The witness -was then turned over to Colonel Crawford for cross-examination. Colonel Crawford then suggested that the ladies in the court be excused and Judse Helm ordered them fo leave the court, owing to questions and answers to come. While Scott Jackson's attorney was look ing over the depositions the preacher's boy in the witness box looked nervously at the Jury and Judge. Colonel Crawford, much to Wood's "em barrassment, asked him about filthy and Indecent statements he had alleged to have made concerning Miss Bryan to Orner New house. Wood hotly denied the statements attributed to him. Newhou?e claimed Wood told him he had had illicit relations with Miss Bryan on an occasion when Wood had gone to the Bryan residence to tune the piano. "No, sir; I never said any such thing. I never said anything like it." young Wood said, talking so fast that the stenographers In the room fell behind. The witness grew very Indignant. . "Did you tell A. E. Hunt that you would prove Pearl Biyan was not virtuous and your relations with her were improper?" asked Crawford. "No, sir; I said nothing of the kind." Attorney Crawford then read the deposi tion of Hunt, which flatly contradicted Wood. Colortel Nelson "Did you ever tell Dr. Gil lespie 'that you had illicit relations with Pearl Bryan?" "No, sir; I did not." "Did ycu ever tell anyone that you had 11 licit relations with Miss Bryan T "Not tna 1 recoUecC answered tWood, "but I may have at seme time made such a statement foolishly, but I tell you it was not true." Witness was then excused and court aa- Journed until 2 o'clock p. m. NEGRO COURTESAXS Called to Testify to Scott Jackson's Licentious Chnracter. , The afternoon session promised, just before the hour of opening, to be enlivened by the testimony of a small drove of colored "fair ies" from George street, who came over the river during the neon recess at the solicita tion of the prosecution, it is said, to testify to the acquaintance of Scott Jackson. They were brought in under tho guise of rebuttal testimony in the matter of the character of the accused. Their presence caused much amusement, and ladies were warned to with draw from the court room when the first courtesan was put on the stand. Alice Smith, colored, of No. 7 Longworth street, testified that she conducted a house of prostitution and had known Scott Jackson since four weeks before Christmas. Colonel Nelson asked her if Scott Jackson had been in her house, but Colonel Crawdfori object ed. Colonel Nelson stated the defenJant's character had been brought in for considera tion by the defens-e, and that he was simply offering evidence in rebuttal, as he wanted to show the habits of the defendant during his residence in Cincinnati. Colonel Nelson temporarily dropped, the question and asked the witness where she first met Jackson. Colonel Crawford also objected to this, but Judge Helm overruled the objection upon the statement of Colonel Nelson that he was simply asking the question to precede an other item of testimony. Judge Helm then ordered the entire evidence of the witness excluded. The jury got the effect, however. Lottie Turner, another colored woman, was called. Colonel Nelson begin her examina tion ingeniously. He neither asked her where she lived nor her occupation, although It was well known, but asked her if she knew 3eott Jackson. She said she did, and had known him since November, 1833. Judge Helm, however, would not allow the prosecu tion to bring out the location of the wit ness's residence or her occupation, and she was excused. Detective Cal. Crim was recalled and Col. Nelson asked him if he heard the conver sation between Chief Deitch and Walling In Jackson's presence. Col. Crawford ob jected, but was overruled. Col. Nelson then changed the question. "Did you." he said, "hear the conversa tion of Walling and Chief Deitsch wherein Walling said in Jackson's presence that he (Jackson) was going to bring Pearl Bryan to Cincinnati and poison her in a room and then cut her into pioces, and in what wan ner did Jackson deny Walllng's charges?" Col. Crawford then objected to the ques tion, holding that in the direct testimony Chief Deitsch and others had stated that Jackson had denied' the allegation of Wal ling, and that in what manner Jackson made the denial was not to be considered. He held that tho question was not In rebut tal and was not admissible in this instance. Judge Helm, however, overruled the ob jection. There then ensued a long wrangle as to the admission of this testimony earlier given by Mayor Caldwell. Chief Deitsch, detec tives CTlm and McDermott and Sheriff Plummer. The detectives, Col. Deitsch and Mayor Caldwell were all in court and Col. Crawford declared that they were being lugged into the case again for the effect it would have on the jury. Col. Crawford even spoke of Col. Deitsch being there in "all his regimentals." Judge Helm made a shortcut of the whole thing by allowing the testimony of Chief Deitsch, Mayor Caldwell and others, which was ruled out earlier, to be considered by the Jury for the purpose of rebutting the testimony of Scott Jackson. Col. Deitsch, called, was asked the same question over the objection of Col. Craw ford, -but the chief, like detective Crlm, no ticed nothing particular about Jackson's manner at that time. It seems likely now that the whole stery of the police Inter views with Jackscn and Walling will be gone over again, as Jackson testified con cerning them, and tho former testimony which was ruled out seems to be competent. Mayor Caldwell then stated on the stand that there was nothing unusual in the man ner of Jackson when he made the denial of Walllng's statement. He simply said, "Wal lle, you know that isn't true."

He Also Refers to the Indianapolis Convention HepreFontat I ve Pickler Filibusters All Day in the House. WASHINGTON, (May 7. By the decisive vote of Gl to 6 the Senate to-day inaugurated an investigation, to be conducted by the Sen ate committee on finance, into the facts and circumstances connected with- the sale of United States bonds by the Secretary of the Treasury during the last three years. The six adverse votes were cast by Senators Caf fery of Louisiana, Faulkner of West Vir ginia, Gray of Delaware, Hill of New York. Mitchell of Wisconsin and Palmer of Illi nois, all Democrats. The resolution direct ing the investigation Is very explicit, as fol lows: "Resolved. That the committee on finance be directed: "First To Investigate and report generally all the material facts and circumstances con nected with the sale of United States bonds by the Secretary of the Treasury in the years 1894. 1S93 and 1S9G. "Second To investigate and report spe cially what amount of available funds, classi fied, was In Uie United States treasury and on deposit in other places, subject to the order of the Secretary of the Treasury, at the time the bonds were sold or offered for sale; whether there was or was not money on hand to meet all obligations of the gov ernment at said time the bonds were sold or were offered to be sold; what obligations were due at that time and the amount of each stated separately; what was the reason for any unusual withdrawal sf coin from the treasury shortly "before the bonds were sold or offered for sale, if such unusual with drawals were In fact made, and by what per sons or classes of persons and for what pur pose or on what account such withdrawals were made; who purchased the bonds, In what amounts and where, whether in the United States or in foreign countries, and In what proportions and from what persons or classes of persons the gold was procured with which to pay for the "bonds; what the bonds sold for and what was the market price of our government bonds at the time and what effect the bond sales had on .the credit anI "business of the people of the United States. "Third To Inve3t!gate and report as to the manner of disposing of said bonds, by what authority and What contracts, adver tisements or proposals were made by the Secretary of the Treasury in relation thereto; what agreements and contracts, and whether oral or In writing, and whether publicly or privately, were entered into by the Secretary of the Treasury and any pyndicate cr person or persons with respect to the sale and pur chase of the bonds and the profits made, or to be made, by such syndicate or any person or persons connected with such syndicate di rectly or indirectly; whether puch contract or agreement had any, nd what effect, on the prices offered for the bonds; what the effect was, and wfio. if any person, profited vy 11, ana 10 wnat extent." The bond resolution came up Immediately after the morning business and Mr. Palmer took the floor. "I oppose this resolution," said he, "because I regard It as an Illegiti mate means of procuring material to af fect and inflame the public mind." The Sen ator went on to say that he did not sup pose any Senator, except possibly the Sen ator from South Dakota (Pettigrew), ques tioned the integrity of the Secretary of the Treasury. The Secretary's Judgment, per haps, might bo disputed, the correctness of his acts might be questioned, but there was! no question of integrity Involved. Mr. Palm er reviewed the platform utterances of the parties. Citing the old adare, "the world do move," Mr. Palmer said the country had moved since the platform declaration of 1892, and it was evident that the financial planks made at Minneapolis and Chicago would not satisfy the people In the coming elections. In mentioning Mr. Cleveland's re turn to the White House in 1893 Mr. Palmer said the President had called to his aid "that able statesman, that pure and honest man. J. G. Carlisle." PALMER ARRAIGNS CANDIDATES. Mr. Palmer referred to the cowardice of candidates for the Presidency and for Con gress in not being specific 1 in their financial views, and In this connection the Senator had an article read from the desk arraigning Major McKinely for his "Janus-faced atti tude on finance." "And yet," added Mr. Palmer, "all Indications point to the fact that the subject of that criticism will be the Republican candidate for the presidency." A Senator across the aisle whispered to Mr. Palmer the substance of the bulletins from the Indianapolis convention, whereupon Mr. Palmer added, "In fact, I understand that the opposition to him has broken down." Mr. Palmer was speedily drawn into a hot colloquy with the two Missouri Senators. Mr. Vest and Mr. Cockrell. The former wanted to know what Mr. Palmer meant by a reference to "snap" conventions in favor of silver. "I. mean," replied Mr. Palmer, "the con ventions held last year in Missouri and Illi nois." "What was the snap feature of the Illi nois convention?" "An unnecessary convention is a snap convention." declared Mr. Palmer. "These conventions were called to commit the De mocracy in advance to the free silver dog ma." Mr. Cockreil answered sharply that the Missouri convention was one of the most representative gatherings ever held. It was called because the Democracy was , being misrepresented and an attempt made o com mit it to gold. Mr. Vest declared that the Missouri con vention was a response to the people. The people led and, added Mr. Vest, "the people assemble conventions and any man who ries to stop them will be crushed. Manhood and decency wl.l no longer permit us to stand here and be accused of advocating 'unsound money and of assembling 'snap conventions. " At this point Mr. Vest branched off Into a sensational recital of personal history. He spoke of the order Just made public by which th:s administration extended civil service reform. It was one of the tenets of this school that the patronage of the gov ernment shall not bo used to influence poli tics. Mr. Vest went on to tell of the Presi dent's removal of United States District Attorney Benton, of Missouri. When Mr. Vest first read this announcement, he im mediately Parted for Washington and asked "his Excellency" what had led to the per petration of this outrage the removal cf a man of unimpeachable character and ability. The President brought out a newspaper paragraph charging Colonel Benton with pernicious activity. Mr. Vest had shown the charges to be unfounded and the President was just enough to revoke the order after giving to the public a letter openly lecturing Colonel Benton against any participation In poli-rlcs while serving the government. Mr. Cockrell interrupted at this point to ask as to the recent Michigan Democratic convention at Detroit, declaring that federal officials had gone there as delegate In structed for silver and had voted against silver. Mr. Vest, proceeding, said he referred to the President's letter to Colonel Benton warning him against "dabbling in politics because this administration had of late Siven Its whole influence and power to in uenre the political sentiment of the people; to lnSueact these so-called nap conventions. Mr. Vest referred to the Nebraska eonven tion where, he said, "effice holders, nst- mar4ers. coilecton of Inirrnal revenue, their lungs filled with the air which came from the treasury'," were in control. The Senator spoke of Cabinet officers speaking about the country and added that he had "not heard a whisper of criticism from his Excellency." A "SHAMEFUL SCENE." Mr. Vest next turned his attention to the recent Myhlgan Democratic State conven tion, reading from an article written by & delegate who had participated In "that shameful scene." The article detailed the action of "backsliders" and "traitors" who had been instructed for silver and vote! against it. The Senator said he had many letters from men of high standing, detailing the circumstances of tha Michigan conven tion as a "shame and disgrace to American public life." After further denunciation of the Influences brought to bear on conven tions. Mr. Vest closed with a startling dec laration as to his own position. "I am a delegate to the national convention," said he, "an unwilling delegate, choseji by my people, and I serve notice now that If that convention at Chicago is to be made up of officeholders to stifle and prevent the expres sion of the will of the people, then it is no Democratic convention to me. The Dem ocratic party is the party of honorable ex pression, not of federal patronage." Mr. Vest's closing words were made with his characteristic vigor and -explos-lveness. Mr. Hill at once took the floor to close his speech In opositlon to the bon3 resolu tion. By this time the galleries were crowded in anticipation of the final vote on the bond resolution., set for 4 o'clock. Mr. Hill referred smilingly to the recent speeches as a "prelude" to the Democratic national convention. "As to 'snap conventions, however." proceeded Mr. Hill. "1 appeal to Senators to let me speak as eji expert," (Laughter.) The Illinois and Missouri conventions had not been snap conventions. They had been regularly called by the regular otflcers of the party. Mr. Hill closed with a reference to the surfeit of Investigations threatened by the precedent the Senate was about to make. Mr. Hill said he expected to be over ridden. He had performed what he regarded as a duty to officials whom he had not helped to put in power. The investigation might be justly conducted, yet this silver question warped men's minds and made them hat each other. Jle had stood alone before- and could do so again. "I have performed a duty," he concluded, "and with that I am content." Mr. Hill dosed at 4 o'clock and voting be gan at once after Mr. Undsay had offered ani then withdrawn an amendment striking out the third section. There was keen- Interest In the progress of the vote, although the re sult was a foregone conclusion. The resolu tion was adopted yeas, LI; nays, 6, as fol lows: Yeas Democrats, Bacon.

"This is .Important." eald Mr. Hill, "the vote is so close." (Laugh ter). Mr. Fry withdrew his vote. The Senate Immediately turned to other business. The action of the committee in striking out the contract provision for JSG0. 000 for the mouth of the Yasoo river and harbor at Vicksburg, Miss., was opposed by the Mississippi Senators, who succeeded ia having the full amount, restored. The con tract litem for expenditures by the Missouri river commission at Omaha, Council Bluffs and other points occasioned a contest. The item was amended to allow specific appro priations of $15,000 each for the Missouri river at Leavenworth and Atchison. Ne braska City was included in the general plan of contract Improvement. The bill was then laid aside. The conference agreements reported on the legislative executive and Judicial appropria tion bill, including the item of salaries for United States district attorneys and mar shals was agreedjo. The bill was passed ex tending the time for building a railroad by the Denlson & Northern iRailway Company through the Indian Territory. Also the bill sending to the Court of Claims the case of the "book agents of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. It was 6:30 when the Sea. ate adjourned. PICKLER OX THE WAR-PATH. The South Dakota Representative In the Role of Filibuster. WASHINGTON, May 7.-The net result of the three and a half hours session of the House to-day was the passage cf a bill to amend the act creating the Court of Ap ppcals so as to allow appeals from the Su preme Courts of the Territories to the Court of Appeals. Mr. Pickler attempted to se cure his revenge for the defeat he suffenil last night when the House refused to re main in session to pass private pension bills, by blocking legislation to-day. lie made the point of no quorum at every opportuni ty and finally the House, losing patience, adjourned. Mr. Pickler threatens to keep up his tactics until he accomplishes his ob ject, which, he says, is to secure further consideration for private pension bills. Mr. Pickler introduced a resolution to-day assigning May 12 and 14 for the considera tion of pension cases, debate to be limited to ten minutes on each bill, ani the House to adjourn at 5 o'clock.

Hubbard, the executive front of the Linseed Oil Trust, has succeeded, with the aid of tho Pillsburys, in perfecting the organization of the greatest millers combine ever put to gether In this country. The purpose is to advance the price of flour from the present low quotations, to secure satisfactory rail and water transportation rates and to com pel every spring wheat grinder in the coun try to become a part of the pool.

Repre sentatives of the trust here claim to repre sent 110 mills having a dally capacity of 103.000 barrels. The whole aim of the organ ization is to protect the gigantic flouring Interests of Minneapolis, now threatened by competition." REASOX CAME BACK. Effect on a Man's Mind ot a Sarfflcal Operation. Detroit Tribune. Benjamin Wcstby. a young man twenty five years old. is loiy recovering his rea son as the result of a surgical op-raticn performed at Harper Hospital last week. He waa knocked down by a tret car near the corner of Clifford street April 18 and taken to the hospital in an unconscious condition. On recovering from the Immediate effects of the accident he gave unmistakable c1 dence of violent insanity, for which the at tending physicians were umble to account, as his Injury In the accident was merly a slight cut over the right eye. Examination, however, disclosed a peculiar concavity In the young man's skull, the bone evidently pressing against the brain. It was then ascertained from his family that ten years before he had been thrown from a railroad train and his skull injured so that frcm that time he had been mentally weak an I wi Fteidlly growing so much worse taat the family had about decided to rlace him In an asylum when tho mtf-ond accident occurred.

Walkfr, as sisted by Drs. Benjamin Brodie. Will Sickel and W. T. Henderson. The singular part of the result of the operation is that while the your.g man had been violently insane before. that it was finally necessary to administer chloroform to shave his head preparatory to the opera tion, he Is now gentle and ootdlent. IMore the operation his memory was a total fcltr.k, and he waa apparently totally lliDtlc. Now he i? able to recall the facts of his two acci dents and can recognize his sister.
