Miss Tanxer failed to report for work to-day In the factory of Far rlngton & Evans, No. 134 West Four teenth street, where she Is a fore woman. It was said there she bad been "overcome by seeing her picture In the papers and reading tho details of her suit." The young woman's lawyer, David Slade, of the Arm of Blade & Blade, No. S00 roadway, was indignant When he learned that Mr. Osborne had aid ho would give 150,000 to any ono who would produce, a cpy or photo graph of a lettsr or letters written by htm to Miss Tamer. Blade thumped his fist on his desk Just as Mr. Os borne had done and exclaimed: "Let M. Osborne deposit 150,000, or a, substantial, sum payable to Miss Roe Tanxer or her atorney and we will convjneo the public and Mr. Osboroo of tho truth of all the claims made by Hiss Tanzer. "FJrst, we will show the hotels whero he registered, with her as 'Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Osborne.' Then we will show other places where he (James W. Osbor haa. been wttb Miss Tanxer. That is the easiest wsy t convincing the public whether the girl's story Is true. "We will select reporters to go with us, or let newspaper men select men to' accompany Mr. Osborne, Miss Tanxer and myself on a tour of the hotels and other places where they have been.' .After this tour of Inspec-' tlon we will let the newspaper re porters be the Judges as to whether wo. have the right man. Is not that XqlrT "I am thoroughly convinced that Oliver Osborne' and James W. Os borne are the same man. If this Is a blackmailing scheme or a con spiracy and the girl's story Is found to be untrue, we not only will apolo gize to Mr. Osborne, but will help him prosecute any and all who are In fho conspiracy."

Aagte will be decided hy to-Might, those whej are toMttwtac hsr WlaJ l the Ssperler Osairt hers fceikm. Prosecutor Cuamlngs closed (or the State and Judge Williams charged the Jury this afternoon. Judge Williams's charge was a cold, careful review of all the evi dence submitted by both sides and a study of the law govetrning the charge of manslaughter. Julge Will iams particularly directed the atten tion of the Jury to the contention of the State that Ballou fell down stairs backward with so heavy a crash that the sound of a dummv experiment ally hurled down tho stairs "was not a circumstance to it." "The State lias painstakingly proved," said Prosecutor Cummlngs, In his summing up address to the Jury to-day, "that tho walls shut out the sounds on that hallway of the Rlp powam Building and they could not be heard by other persons In the building. We have brought out that although Chief Bronnan, his men and a lot of others tramped up and-down those stairs for hours, other tenants didn't hear a sound. Murder and brawling might easily have gone on unheard." "Tilts is no case for sympathy," Mr. Cummlngs continued. "Remember, we have not chargod the defendant with murder. Wo do not Imply malice, premeditation, lying In wait, or evon Intent to kill. I was amaied when my learned friend, Judge Downs, told you yesterday that you had this woman's life tn your hands.' It Is not true. You are merely asked to say whether, In a quarrel or brawl, she knookod this old man down, back wards, so that bo was killed. Mr. Cummlngs held up the straw hat of Ballou, which was found hi a, clothes chest In Mrs. Angle's room after the police had been led to her rooms by crimson prints of bars feet, leading up the stairs from the spot where Ballou was found dying. He fitted Into the torn dent of the bat the heel of the electric flatlron which was found on Mrs. Angle's table. "It fits with uncanny exactness. This dent may have been made by this iron," he said quietly. Mr. Cummlngs put the hat on his own head, calling the attention of the Jury to the fact that it was right side before. "Now," he shouted, "I will tell you how that dent was not made. Look can you Imagine me falling down stairs In such a way as to make this dent? Let the back of this chair represent the edge of a stair below me.
