Aoonsed Shows Nerves of Steel as Case Goes On—Father Bits Beside Him. • . * I CHESTERFIELD COURTHOUSE, Va., Auk- 24. —On the anniversary of his wedding to Louise Welford Owen, Henry Clay Beattie, Jr., today began the real battle to avert expiation for her murder. If the grim clrcum* stances caused the man accused of wife-murder In the slightest emotion, he did not show It. * Calm and smiling he took his place In the dock as the first witness to testify against him took the stand. The fact that the wife he married one year ago lies In her grave, the victim of a brutal murder, and that he is accused of the crime, seemed to touch no strings in the steel-wired tempera* ment of the indifferent young man. Beattie sat beside his father. The aged man kept his arm protectlngly about his son's shoulders. They chat ted together quietly, the accused son talking with animation, while the gray-halred father, his face lined by cares, appeared more like a man on trial than did the prisoner. Detective Bcherer had brought from Richmond the blood-clotted automo bile in which Beattie took home the body of his wife from the ride that ended ip death, i The gruesome ex hibit was wheeled up beside the Jail. As Beattie and his father came from the jail to the courthouse, Prosecutor Wendenburg had Just flnlsned an ex amination of the car. . ' Beattie strolled over, and while his father lifted the blood-stained cush ions, on which Beattie sat while he held the dead body of his wife, the accused man peered with curious in terest at the stains on the woodwork. He pointed at the blood-marked floor of the car, and argued earnestly in a low tone with his father. They stood for probably five min utes gaxlng at the blood stains. Not the slightest trace of emotion showed on Beattie’s face. When Jpdge Watson called the case of the “State vs. Beattie." the flay, toy-sized 'courtroom was Jammed. Beattie grew slightly more serious and seemed a trifle anxious as he lis tened to the roll call of the witnesses for the state. His father fanned him self and his accused boy with a large palm-leaf fan. All 64 witnesses were called before Judge Watson In batches of live or six. sworn, and turned out of the courtroom again. Only Thomas Owen, scheduled as the first witness, was allowed to re main in the courtroom. Neither Paul Beattie nor Beulah Binford was brought out from Henrico county Jail. Trial Attracts Many. In holiday garb, the plain farmers of Chesterfield and the morbidly curious city folk traveled out to the little sycamore sheltered courthouse, to day, to witness the real fight for his life of Henry Clay Beattie, Jr. For today the keen lawyers, who are de termined to send Beattie to the elec tric chair for the murder of his wife, began building up the structure of circumstantial evidence upon which they depend. The public Vas excited. Ever since Henry Beattie carried his wife’s body home from an automobile ride, tho night of July 18, the public has been fed with speculation and conjecture. Today witnesses were to tell the story under oath and the public wanted to hear. Picturesque Sheriff 0111, the paint brush-bearded confederate veteran, who policed Chesterfield county, had trouble controlling the outpouring of spectators. With the long weeks of maneuver ing and skirmishing over, Henry Beat tie, steeled to the crisis, became even calmer than before. He arose this morning in Chesterfield county Jail, a little brick box of a place In the courthouse yard. Yesterday he longed for his cell In Richmond Jail, but to day he was enthusiastic over the country. “This is much better out here,” he said with a smile, “a sort of country retreat. It will be good for my health.’’ Today, Prosecutor Wendenburg had his array of witnesses on hand, 64 In all, ready to keep on placing his testi mony before the jury steadily until Lbe end. Wendenburg wants no more ilelay, and he Intends to attempt tr place the direct evidence of the pros scution before the Jury this week, if possible. Many witnesses will be held (CtatliaH on P«*f Mia*.) ADVERTISING TALKS. WRITTEN BT, WILLIAM C. FREE WAV. No. 822.

ROWDY MOOSE LANDJN COURT Police Pick Up a Number for Insult ing Women During Wednesday Night’s Parade. Echoes of the Moose parade of Wed nesday night were heard in the early session of police court, Thursday morning. Roy Hiden, Robert Solomi, Richard Pennlfather and Jack Steffln, a quar tet of “smart” young men, the kind that always make themselves obnoxi ous in a crowd, were each assessed 15 by Police Justice Stein. Alert po licemen picked them up during tbe night on charges of Jostling women, making Insulting remarks to people and making themselves generally ob noxious. “You fellows are just the kind that make it unsafe for a man to bring his wife, his sister or his sweetheart down-town at night,” said the court Grace Woods was having a meiry time with four Moose on Woodward ave. They made so much noise that the police interfered and the four Moose scampered away. Grace was 'captured and In police court was flnec. $6, with tbs option of spending 30 days la the house of correction. Henry McCord, who led a Teddy Bear In the parade, waa later arrest ed. He went over to the train" annex and proceeded to make violent love to all the Pontchartrain help.

SATISFIED WITH McDONNELL No Changes In Detective Bureau Con templated, Says Croul. Police Commissioner Croul contem plates no changes in the detective bureau in the central police station. Moreover, the commissioner expresses himself as being satisfied with the way the bureau Is being conducted under Capt. James McDonnell. Mr. Croul prides himself on the efficiency of the department, which has been brought to a high standard of excel lence under his administration and It Is plainly evident from his attitude that he regards an attack upon the head of the detective bureau as a per sonal affront In speaking of the afr tack, the commissioner said: ‘There will be no changes In the detective bureau. Any newspaper making such a statement Is deliber ately misrepresenting facts. The bu reau’s work is satisfying me. If It were not, there would have been changes befors this. Capt McDonnell Is satisfying me. If he were not, he -wouldn’t behead of the detective bu reau. That is all there Is to say about the matter.” MANUFACTORIES INCREASE.

Cengresfc-st, ATWOOD'S FLIGHT HALTED BY MOTOR AUNT During Aviator Is Obliged To De scend at Nyack, 28 Miles From His Destinatioa, and May Not Fly Again Till Tomorrow. Flyer, However, In Work Thus Far Has Set New Mark for Long- Distance Flying. NYACK, N. Y., Aug. 24.—An acci dent to his motor prevented Harry N. Atwood from completing hla St. Loula-New York flight today. Afi<y landing on Hook Atwood came to this city with pieces of the motor which he said would have io be repaired before he could resume his flight He said he doubted If ho could fly again now before tomorrow. He took rooms at a local hotel. Atwood's actual flying time, from Castleton to Hook Mountain, was 2 hours, 38 minutes. From St. Louis to this point he had been in the air 27 hours, 41 minutes. His total mile age to this village is 1,240. He has 28 miles to go to Governor’s Island, Increasing his total to 1,268 miles. Atwood explained that, as he was passing around the bend in the river opposite Hook mountain, he felt his machine sinking. His motor was skipping, so he steered for the Davies farm, on the side of the mountaiu, shut off his motor and planed to the i ground. Examination showed that ; the babbitt metal in the connecting . rod of his machine’ had burned out, 1 putting the engine out of commis sion. He telegraphed for machinists and they went to work on the engine. They did not think, however, there was the slightest chance that repairs could be completed In time for anew start before tomorrow morning. Machine O. K. At Cold Bprings. COLD SPRINGS, !f. Y., Aug. 24. NVlth a world’s record for cross-coun try flying to his credit, and with a wonderful demonstration of over water work in a heavier-than-alr ma chine to delight him as the result of his morning’s work, Harry N. Atwood dropped down In a field Just outside of this village ut 9:42 today to over haul his biplane and get ready for a triumphant entry into New York, now only 62 away.w ~ Maintaining an ajtltndo ranging from 250 to 150 feet, for the entire distance, Atwood flew from Castleton to West Point, 84 miles, in a direct line above the surface of the Hudson river, in one hour and 50 minutes. He averaged better than 46 miles an hour and had planned to land on the parade ground at the Point, where several friends, officers In the army, were to have greeted him. Swooping in from the river In a giant circle, Atwood found It impossi ble to make a landing at the Point and swung back across the river, head ing northward and landing in an open field here ten minutes later. Although Glenn Curtiss was trou bled by the air currents along the river on his famous flight, now eclips ed, Atwood had little bother. His present plan Is to resume •!* flight this afternoon; fly down the Hudson to Governor’s Island, circle that spot, where he made his original landing in his Boston-New York flight, and then continue to the big racetrack at Sheepsheafl Bay, bo make a final landing. Aviator Gets Good Start. HUDSON, N. Y., Aug. 24.—With the weather conditions almost per fect for his purpose, Atwood started from Castleton at 7:42 on the last leg of his great Journey. His mechanics had worked a good part of the night, overhauling hla machine and getting the big metal pontoons, which were to safeguard the machine and man, should he have to alight Jn the river, into position on the sides of the bi plane. Atwood waa out of bed at 6:20, and, after carefully scrutinizing sky and horizon, expressed the belief that he would be able to make New York, 134 miles from Castleton, by mid-after noon. Even at that early hour the promise was of a good, although cloudy day. The wind waa coming briskly out of the northwest, where It would aid the aviator. After Atwood had had breakfast, he returned to the ball grounds, where he was to start, flllsd hla tanks, took a last look at the various parts of his machine and climbed Into his seat. It was exactly 7:42 when he Jumped Into the air and a few seconds later he had ateersd over the middle of the river and headsd his biplans toward the south. His speed from the start was a 45- mlle-an-hour clip and he maintained an altitude ranging from 160 to 200 feet above the river. There waa no cttenlpt at fancy dips or sparts, but the big machine was held on its course In a distinctly business-like manner. THE WEATHER.

VOTE SI,OOO TO OFFICER'S WIDOW ' * •' V Moose Provide Fund for Family of I Mounted Patrolman Crushed To Death in Street. *I * f When the delegates to the twenty third annual convention of the Loyal Order of Moose resumed their ses sion. In the Detroit opera bouse. Thursday morning, the first business transacted was the adoption of a res olution, donating SI,OOO to the widow of Mounted Patrolman Franklin M. Smith, who was crushed to death under the wheels of a fire department water tower on the Campus Marti us, Wednesday night Supreme Organizer James J. Davla made the motion, first obtaining the unanimous consent of the delegates to depart from the regular order ol business. When the purpose of this action was made known, there was a storm of applause. Past Supreme I>i< tator Stevens, of Indianapolis, sec onded the motion in a touching speech, and it was carried by a unani mous vote. In the contest for next year’s con vention, Kansas City waa an easy winner, receiving 397 votes. „Los An geles was the nearest competitor with 148 votes. Washington, D. C., and Salt Lake City each received 26 votes. Mayor Darius Brown, of Kansas City, made a big hit with hit nominating speech, assuring the delegates that if any of them became obstreperous in next year’s convention and were thrown in jail, they would be sur rounded by every luxury. The election of James G. Jones, of Wilkesbarre, Pa., as supreme outer guard, was announced, Thursday morning. "He defeated Dr. R. K. John son, of Detroit, and O. W. Williams, of Birmingham.

Supreme Dictator Jones, Thursday morning, announced the . reappoint ment of Wilson Dee Bush, of New York, as press representative of tbe convention, which was confirmed.i Following their parade and social session, Wednesday night, the visiting Moose rather reluctantly returned to the business of the convention, Thurs day morning. Most of the delegates slept late, so the morning was pretty well along before the business session was under way in the Detroit opera house. It is expected that the battle over the place of meeting for next year will take place today. The parade Wednesday night, was a spectacle well worth seeing. It is esti mated that there were close.to 10,000 Moose In line. Including many uni formed delegations. The bands were a pleasing feature. The Moose seem to be strong on tnuqlc. Tbe down-town streets were Jammed with people,' and the police had con siderable trouble In keeping the surging mass within proper bounds. The spectators were liberal with their cheers whenever a particularly well dressed delegation or a strikingly unique feature presented Itself. The “court of honor,” In front of the Moose club rooms, on Orlswold •t., was rendered as light as day by k special lighting arrangement, which enabled- a moving picture company to make a film of the entire parade as It passed. A film will be sent to each of the lodges represented. The *Qgi*i session in . the. Light Guard armory proved a happy affair. Miss Lilly Dorn, a dramatic soprano from Vienna, and several members of George Evans’ minstrel company pro vided the entertainment. There were a couple of sparring matches .between representatives of western and east ern lodges to close the program. Miss Cleveland to Wed. TAMWORTH. N.

That the Democratic party, on tho strength of its record in the apodal session of congress, Juat closed, will not only elect Its candidate for prest dent in 1912, but will also seeure a majority in the senate, la the staio* ment of Congressman Frank E. Dove mus, who returned from Washington, Wednesday night. "The Democrats are ready to go before the country on their recoad in congress." eaid Mr. Doremua to Thv Times, “and I believe they will have the support of a large number of the progressive Republicans, whose rep resentatives stood by us In the spe cial session. The fact that many of the progressive Republicans voted with us In the attempt to peas the wool bill and the farmer’s free list bill over the president’s veto shows that thoro Is not a great deal of dif ference between our principles. Wo feel very grateful to them, and I be lieve we can count on their help in the campaign next year. "Even the Republicans In Washing ton admit privately that the pros pects are very favorable for the elec tion of a Democratic president and a Democratic senate next year, and we Democrats are certain of it "Naturally there has been consid erable talk among the members of congress as to preaidential possibili ties. Among the Democrats in the house, the men moot mentioned are Gov. Wilson. Gov. Harmon and Speaker Clark, but the sentiment has not crystallized as yet. It is quite probable that the Alabama delegation may put forth Underwood as a can didate because of the excellent rec ord he has made an a party leader, (lor. /Marshall, of Indiana, to also talked of by the Indiana representa tives. "A poll taken by a Chicago paper among the congressmen, showed Gov. Wilson In the lead, I understand. There is much Harmon talk, however, and Bpeaker Clark la also popular. But It is difficult, in fact, impossible at this time, to tell which man has the greatest strength. "As to the Republican candidate, it looks very much like Taft. There is an overwhelming sentiment for him among the Republicans in Wuhlstt ton. LaFollette's name has been free ly mentioned In that connection, but the sentiment does not appear to be strong." ; Congressman Doremua was em phatic in declaring that President Taft waa not Justified In vetoing the farmers’ free list bill, the woolen bill or the cotton bill. "While the Democrats will gladly avail themselves of any Information the tariff board can give, we do not think the president was Justified in holding up needed legislation until that Information is forthcoming," said Mr. Doremus. “No tariff schedule ever received such careful consideration as was given schedule K by our ways and meant committee. The committee was selected before coagrees met so that It could take up this schedule without delay and go into the snbject thoroughly. There la not a duty iu the woolen or the cotton schedules that represents less than the differ ence In the coat of production at home and abroad, and in many Instance! the duty exceeds the difference In cost of production. That shows what great precaution was taken to give the mat ter absolutely fair consideration, and the country should have been given the benefit of this legislation while the tariff board Is carrying on Its in vestigations.
