It Has Been Beached in the Jett Murder Trial. Jackson, Ky.. June 17. Arguments in the trial of Jett and White are proceed ing today. The most sanguine predict nothing more than a disagreement, while others anticipate acquittal. Under thes- conditions the reign of terror con tinues. Part of Ewen's family have gone to Lexington and others are ar ranging to become refugees from their homes. Following the action of the grand jury yesterday in releasing those held for arson and the alleged attempt last night to kill those who testified in the arson cases. there is increased anxiety as to what may happen to other witnesses in the rr.ui -. r cases after the trial closcc. B. J. Owen, who was reported last night to have fled from camp here, did not leave until this morning. A guard of soldiers saw him safely aboard the train. He sent several of his children yesterday to relatives and friends at different places and secured a place for his wife and younger children here un til he can make other arrangements. When court convened today Judge B. F. French, the noted leader of the French faction of the French-Eversole feud, who is the leading lawyer for the defense of Jett and White, began the opening argument before Judge Red wine. He declared that County Judge Blantcn. who had said that witness Crawford had been arrested had lied. Judge Blanton sprang to his feet and approached Judge French, but Elizor Jones threw himself between the men and Judge Redwine finally secured quiet in the court room. Judge Redwine then threatened to send Judge Blanton to jail for contempt of court and admonished Judge French to be more temperate, in his language. BAISES A $600 FI ND.

Six years ago, while preparations were going on for the Paris fair, a body of German burgomasters met at Carls ruhe to consider the proposal for a joint j municipal exposition at theirfair by Ger. j man cities. The project was discarded, each city being left to its own course respecting Paris; but instead, the sur gestion that a municipal exposition in and for Germany be held in 1903 .was heartily approved. Active preparations tr that end were soon under way. Dres den, whose burgomaster had made the oi iginal suggestion, was chosen as the place, and the exposition is to occur in that city from May 20 to September HO of the present year. It promises to be an event of genuine interest and importance. It will, in the first place, be unique in conception. Municipal exhibits constituted some thing of a feature at Paris in 1900, a? they had to a less extent in previous world's fairs. The forthcoming exposi tion, however, will be the first to be de voted exclusively to the subject of mu. nicipal development. In the second place, it will be widely representative of municipal enterprise in the German em pire. Out of the 156 cities in that em pire having a population of 25,000 or more in 1895, 128 are to .participate, and treir preparations have been progress, ing with deliberation and wholesome emulation. In the third place, recent municipal history in Germany is pecu liarly worthy or being thus displayed. The rapid growth of the cities of that country has been not less remarkable than that of American towns, and the efforts made, not only for superior ad ministration in general, but especially toward comprehensive direction of that growth, form one of the notable facts of recent social history. Indeed, the great widening of municipal action in the cities of the fatherland respecting education, recreation, charity, hygiene and "municipal trading" is. less signif icant than the attempt to give proper shape, both for economic and esthetic ends, to the entire physical organization of those cities. The authorities have set up the ideal of a city which, in arrange ment and structure, should be a ration al unity; and while the results achieved have naturally been limited, they are in miiny respects surprising. There have actually developed in Germany and in Austria, too especially during the'last dozen years, the rudiments of a real science of city building, with a limited but distinctive literature of its own. In its internal organization, the dis play will fall under two main divisions. The first is intended to disclose "the condition of municipal life in Germany at the beginning of the twentieth cen tury and its development in recent years." The second will "bring to gether a collection of appliances and manufactures produced by German firms for municipal purposes." The first division will be supplied by city author ities, and will occupy 12.000 square me ters of space. Its eight general de partments will comprise (1) public streets and places, including street con struction, mains, lighting, tramways, bridges, harbors; (2) town expansion, including housing: (3) public art; (4) public health and safety; (5) education; (6) charities; (7) public finance, includ insr "municiDal trading." and (S) muni cipal statistics, including methods of regulating public employment. Models will constitute a favorite and effective method-of display. Berlin, for example, has appropriated $17,000 for models alone, and will exhibit by this means several of its public baths, its new overhead and underground electric railwav, its abattoirs, its most approved school houses, including a manual training school, and one of its school gymnasiums. Hamburg will send a model of its great harbor and docks, with their gen eral mechanical equipment. Nuremberg will show minlels of a new hospital, a school bath and a new municipal thea ter. Cologne will exhibit in the same way a people's park, and Breslau a school garden. Full sized sections ot streets will be built, showing different sorts of paving, with sub-pavement constructions. A short street railway line will illustrate progress to date in surface transit methods, and an auto mobile train is contemplated. Foun tains, squares and other decorative ele ments will be liberally reproouceo m model and picture, and in the further interest of beauty as well as economy, there will be a special exhibit af smoke consuming devices. From Public Opin ion. Glass Men Meet. Pittsburg, Pa., June 17. A joint meet ing of the independent and federated window glass companies is being held here to consider general trade condi tions, which are said to be perplexing owing largely to the cessation of build ing operations caused by- labor disturb ances. Yesterday the national jobbers association rejected the manufacturers' proposition to sell TOO.OOO boxes of glass at 88 per eer.t. off the eld list. At to dav's r.eetingr it is said the manufac turers may make a better proposition to the jobbers and pending the reault o the meeting the representatives of th; jobbers will remain la the city. FIXED FOB FOUR YEARS. Another Expedition Has Start ed for the North Pole. Christiania, Norway, June IT. The whaling- ship Ojoa, with Capt. Am- . mundsen's magnetic north pole pxpe dition on board, sailed at midnight. It has been announced that the Am mundsen expedition will first go Xn . Kin?? Williamsdand, on the east coa.-t . of (Greenland, and will thence prnceo-l , for Bering strait. If Captain Arnmmni en is able to follow the course project ed it will take him almost across the pole. Captain Ammundsen, who is a. Norwegian, was the first, officer of the Belgi a inGerlach's antarctic expedititt of iMir-'&S. After his return AmmunJ sen consulted with Prof. Numayer. nt Hamburg, the leading authority on ter-" restrial magnetism, who informed him that the expert determination of the' earth's magnetic north pole would be of the very greatest value to scienc-. The fitting out of the expedition which has just left Christiania followed. -: The Ojoa is classed as being one of the strongest and best vessels of the v arctic fleet. She can be handled by a crew of seven, is fitted with an auxil-' iary petroleum engine, and is eo,uippei" for a four years' stay in the arctic regions. The L.obstera Enemies.
