Rogers, in a special interview In "The Manufacturers' Record" of Baltimore, takes a very optimistic view of the business conditions of the country- "The country is all right," pays Mr. Rogers. "Conditions will adjust themselves , and there will be no stagnation or half in prosperity on account of the Presidential campaign next year. "While we have had ■ serious disturbance in the security market. 1 believe that present con dltinr.P fir" bound to right themselves. I be lieve the country is all right, and that the con fidence of the people generally 'will be speedily restored. The country has grown so tre mendously, the population has increased .so vastly snd the production <>f wealth has gon« ahead so enormously over what It was a few years ago that I cannot believe there will be any serious Interference with th« tide of pros perity the whole nation has experienced for a number of years past. •The earth is yielding wealth as never be fore. Not only have vast quantities of gold and other metals been taken from the ground In recent years, copper. Iron, coal. etc.. but diversification in agricultural products has had an important part in bringing a new and more permanent prosperity to th* people. VALUE OF DIVERSIFICATION. "Take the case of the Red River of th* North country. When wheat was so nearly the cole crop raised up there that it formed the major part of the freight hauled by the St. Paul road, a bad crop year" meant ruin for the farmers and great loss to the railroad. To-day the relation that wheat bears to the total freight traffic of this road is HI per cent less than it was twenty pears ago; ruinous crop failure? do not' occur along the line, and the road is uniformly prosperous. I understand the 6outh has similarly learned the lesson of di versification, with the result that you never were s= •• prosperous in that Important section, »nd that the same conditions exist in the West. "Everybody ls living on a scale different from that of a tew years ago. As a rule, everybody has more money than he had in former years. and we all require more comfoijs, conveniences and luxuries. We live In better homes than our fathers did • we wear better clothes than the ■■-.--■. i before us; our children go to better echoo]= ; we travel more, we have things to eat every day that we had only at certain seasons of the year a short time ago, and we have more money in our pockets than the people did of a gen*:. past. This means that a greater pro duction of everything is required; that people have arc to do, and it lakes more workers to accomplish what must be done. ~1 am a great believer In Providence. Take, for instance, the hi.story of the petroleum devel opment of the world. It is full of providential tarper.ings. New fields have been discovered as fast as r.er-o>d, and from two thousand barrels, la 1859, the production has become so great I can't carry (be figures In my head. Petroleum, providing illumination that now- changes dark ■*» to daylight in homes all over the world, has been the greatert clvlHser outside of the Chris tiar. religion that humanity ha/? known, and Its discovery and development in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, in Texas, in California, in Russia . and every v. here it has been found seetr. to have been made at just the time when needed and when tho r>eople were prepared for its use. URGES GOVERNMENT CONSERVATISM. * "I believe in providential happenings in all the affair? of men, and I believe that Providence Is . «n the side of this country and that everything trill work out all right. I don't believe the peo pie are going to overlook the things that make for their wellbeing. The whole country has had a taste of the blessings of prosperity, and in a providential sort of way I believe the people are •° tn to eliminate the factors that would stand In the way <.f continued prosperity. -Continued agitation, the people will see. Un- Bettles conditions. You cannot move loads with a team that won't haul with horses or mules that Will not pull together. The people must see that settled conditions are necessary for prog ress and development, and I believe that the sen timent of ■ country will have so crystallized within a few months that there will be a prac tically united demand for the strongest conser vatism I* the conduct of th* government. Wo taxis: have fettled conditions, and I believe we *l!l have them. "While the recent panic is described as a flurry among the Wall Street gamblers, its effect and Siriv!: ■■:. . are not to be so contemptuously dismissed.

Distinguished Gathering at Rededi eation of the Institute. [r?y TVlejjraph to Tbe Tribune ] Ptttaburc April 11. The enlarged Carnegie Institute, for which S'J.'^MMKK* has been given by one man, was dedicated this afternoon by Andrew Carnegie, the founder. In the presence of the most distinguished gathering that has ever been assembled in I'ittsburg. The guests gathered at the Hotel Bchenley at 1 o'clock for the march to the new institute. The question of precedence had caused the trus tees seme uneasiness, and at the last moment it was decided that there should be. no regu larly announced line of precedence, and that tha line of march should be as democratic as was tho gatherings The parade was led by A. A. Hatnerschlac, dire, tor of th* • Technical Schools, and following him trere the members of the faculty. Then came Mr. Carnegie, on the arm of W. N Frew, and behind them came Lieutenant General ron Uowenfeld, adjutant to th* Herman Emperor, and Lieutenant LMckhuth, of the Germany army. Twenty-nve thousand people were gathered along; the line of march. TJie general public had to be ex' luded from tho exercises, for when the distinguished guests and the prominent peo ple of Pittsburfi were in the building there was room for no more. Mr. Carnegie departed from his set ppe° r h long enough to declare that to himself little credit was due. for the wonderful institution. MR. CARNEGIE'S PART. "The only part that I had in it." he said, "was to attach my name to a little piece of paper. That transferred to these men soma bonds. I never saw the bonds, and don't know how much of a hole it made in what are there. Last night I said to my wife, 'It all looks like the work of an Aladdin's lam?.' and she replied. 'Yes. and you did not even have to rub the lamp.' That sizes up my position exactly." In closing his address Mr. Carnegie, declared that the mail Emperor was the. greatest man of the age. "He is a man of destiny," he said. "He has It in his power to force the world int.-* universal peace. The fact that his reign has been without bloodshed leads to the belief that he will take advantage of the wonderful oppor tunity." The day's exercises were brought to a close with the announcement of the prize winners In the international art exhibition. Following are the successful painter*, amount of awards and titles of pictures: First prize (gold medal and $l.y»"»- Gsston La Tourht*. Paris. Franc*-, "The Bath." Second prize (silver medal and Jl.iWit— Thomas Eakins. Philadelphia. "Professor Leslie W. Miller. Third prise (bronze medal and IMO) -Olga de Boz naui-ka, Paris. France, portrait of a woman. The following received honorable mention: Lawton S. Parker, Chicago, portrait of an Kng \V. GranviUe-Bmtth, New York. ••"The Old Mill." Maurice Greiffenhsgen, London, England, portrait of bis wife. CONCERT FOR THE GUESTS. To-night the foreign and American guests at tended a concert given In their honor by the Pittsburg Orchestra, directed by Emil Paur. Upon the invitation of Mr. Paur and the orchestra committee. Sir Edward Elgar. of London, con ducted one of his own compositions. ■ The ceremonies to-day while elaborate were marked with extreme simplicity. Addresses were delivered by his excellency The >dor yon Moeller. Minister of State, Germany; Paul Dou mer, ex-Speaker Chamber of Deputies, Paris; Andrew Carnegie; Baron d'Estournelles de Con stant, member of the French Senate, and Dr. John Rhys, principal of Jesus College, Uni versity of Oxford. The Rev. Dr. E. S. Roberts, vice-chancellor of the University of Cambridge, England, delivered the invocation. A letter of regret from President Roosevelt was read by the secretary of the institute. In his letter the president praised Mr. Carnegie for the great gift to science and education. During the exercises the President was re ferred to as "the great peacemaker," and vocif erous applause greeted every mention of his name. The first of the exercises to-day were two receptions, at which President Frew and Mayor Guthrie presided. At the municipal reception Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie assisted. Following the reception the guests were taken on a tour of inspection through the library, museum and In ternational art exhibition. ' THE PRESIDENT'S LETTER. President Frew presided at the rededication ceremonies, and in a brief address praised the benevolence of Mr. Carnegie. The letter from President Roosevelt, who was unable to attend, was read. It wan a* follows: White House. Washington. April 11. 1907. My Dear sir: i am not able to be present myself with you; therefore let me, through you. express my appreciation of the great work done by the founding of the Carnegie Institute. Wealth is put to a noble use when applied to purposes such as those (he Carnegie Institute is so well designed to serve. Every *uch institute, every foundation de- Fignt-d to serve the educational uplifting of our people, represent* Just so much gain for American life, just so much credit for -us collectively as a nation The success of our Republic is predicated upon the high individual' efficiency of the average citizen, and the Carnegie Institute In one of those institutions which tends to bring about this high Individual efficiency. Many thing* go to make up such efficiency. There must be a sound body; there must t>e physical hardihood and addresa in the use of rr:<ined nerve and muscle. There must also be a high degree of trained Intellectual devel opment, a high degree of that Intelligence which can only be obtained when there Is both power to act on individual initiative and power to ad In disciplined co-ordination with others. And finally there must Ik that training on the moral side which means that production in the average cit izen of .i high type of character— the character which sturdily insists upon rights, and no less whole-h«-artedly and In the fullest fashion recog nise* the fact that the performance of duty to others stands even ahead of the insistence upon one's own rights. Through you 1 extend my heartiest congratula tions to Mr. Carnegie, and my wishes that he may have many happy returns <lf this day. together with the acknowledgment which ;*ll of us must make of the public service he so signally renders when be founds institution* of this type. Sin cere!;. yours. THKODOJtK ROOSEVELT. Mr. s H. Church, Secretary Carnegie Institute. Pittftburg, I'< ;m. MR. CARNEGIE'S SPEECH. Mr. Carnegie was then presented by Mr. Frew, and was received with much applause. He said: Eleven years ngo, standing here. I handed over the Institute to Pittsburg, then a bold experiment— a combination of library, art gallery, museum and ball of music— never, as far as I know, having been attempt 4<f l>efore. The city wan to maintain the library, and let dm say in passing most generously has she done n<». Including seven branches erected to meet the wants of her swelling population. I congratulate her upon being among the foremost cities of the world in public library development; certainly, there is none superior. s Mr. Carnegie then took up the history of the establishment of the library system and the de velopment of the Institute Idea, adding: Here It was that fortune came to me, and It Is as a IMttsburger I have labored for ritlsuurg. This Institute Is built by a Plttsburger. with Pittsburg money, for Pitt* burg. You all know the beneficent results which have followed. Our ceremony of to-day embraces the technical school*, which are also. in a sens-?, now to be formally opened. These arc part of the Institute, and .no mean part. 1 am told tli"re are to-day 1,590 students— young m«*ti and young women— and; several thousand awaiting admission.

Mayor Ifcdellan yesterday called the bluff of Charles F. Murphy, who this week caused to be pent to the Mayor's office the threat that if the proposed Investigation of the Borough President's office wan not called off the friends of Borough President Ahenrn would find a way to bring about an Investigation of the. depart ments under Fire Commissioner Lantry and Water Commissioner John 11. O'Brien. Mayor McClellan yesterday, after a confer ence with Corporation Counsel Ellison, had htm .«end a letter to Assistant Corporation Counsel Butt*, in Albany, requesting: him to see th« Governor and leaders of the Legislature am! ask for a legislative committee to Investigate all the city departments. When the news went around last night that the Mayor was pressing the fight between hlm *ilf and Murphy to a finish there was conster nation among the friends of the leader of Tam many HalL • • Borough President Ahearn has joined forces with Charles F. Murphy, and will stand or fall with him. There will bo no further delay in the Investigation of the Borough President's office. Corporation Counsel Ellison says that there is some doubt about the ability of the Commissioners of Accounts to Investigate thor oughly the affairs of the Borough President's office, and he makes it clear In his letter to Mr. Butts that the Jurisdiction of the Commis sioners of Accounts Is likely to be challenged The move by Mayor MrClellan reveals his determination to clean things up in all the de partments, find tt Is Bald by his friends that he does not care what head of department is hurt by the 1 Investigation. The friends of Borough President Abeam are gettlnj ready to block the investigation by the Commissioners of Accounts, which la sched uled to«begln on Monday. They say Mr. Ahearn cannot be forced to produce bonks and papers unless be is bo disposed, and that he will at the outset refuse t<» obey the requests of the Commissioners of Accounts If It Is to his Inter est to oppose them. ' When Corporation Counsel Ellison was «>een last night he admitted he had sen! a Utter to Mr. Butts asking for an investigation, if prac ticable, of all the city departments. He sal-i that he had taken the step after consultation with the Mayor. "Threats have l>een made." said Mr. Ellison, "that maybe there would be an Investigation of other departments if the Commissioners of Ac counts were allowed to press their proposed In vestigation of the Borough President's office. The letter pent to Mr. Butts will speak for itself. i do not care, to make further comments on it." The letter to Mr. Butts la us follows: As you have probably observed, there has been considerable comment in connection with the pend ing Investigation of the department of the Presi dent -if the Borough of Manhattan as to whether the powers of the Commission?™ of Accounts are sufficiently broad to enable a searching anri com . 1 '•'• Investigation to be made Just what the Commissioners of Accounts are authorized .-md empowered to <lo Is not without some doubt, mid it may be that when the test conns their powers to enforce obedience to their tsuttpn-nus and compel the fullest Introduction of testimony may be found to be Insufficient. Certain it Is that their authority In the premises is being vigorous!) questioned. and it iH claimed that we will be barred by legal proceedings from making the full and fair investi gation that I understand the Mayor desires to have made of the office of the Borough President and other departments of the city government Before this difficulty could be solved by Judicial decision If the powers of the Commission of Accounts are. ns 1 rather expect they will t«>, ques tioned Legislature win have adjourned. I therefore request thai you ascertain, if possible, from th« Governor and from the leaders of the legislature whether. In their opinions, an investi gating committee with full powers can be secured at this session, through whom a thorough Investi gation Of all city departments may be had. I would much appreciate your obtaining this Information before your return on Friday if you can do so. If I understand the Mayor correctly. it Is his de- sir* that all departments be carefully examined, but he ha? some, doubts as to whether the powers of the Commissioners of Accounts are sufficient for the purpose. This has been a matter under con sideration for some time, and it now become? acute because of th« alleged limitations to the powers of the Commissioners of Accounts by those who claim to speak for the department now under investigation. It will be noted that the letter of the Corpora tion Counsel mak'-s no restrictions with refer ence to the Investigation. The Police Depart ment would be Investigated among others if the commit te« la appointed. Mayor McClellan signed th« Binßham Police bill yesterday, and if it becomes a law. a legislative, Investigation of the Police Department mi^ht act as a sort r,f houseck-aiiiiiK preparatory to rforpani/.lng tht> department.

In the theatre, where Miss Jessie Busley was en tertaining a largo audience in "In the Bishop's Carriage." the announcement by the manager that there was a fire in the neighborhood and a hasty exit was necessary, startled the audience and there was a rush for the doors. In the top gallery, which was Jammed, the theatre employes did good work la suppressing the excitement. The smoke curled in over tho top of the stage and some one shouted "Fire!" but by this time the galleries were nearly empty and everybody reached the street without injury.

Baseball Game Ends in Snowball and Cushion Fight. With an inning still to play, the baseball game at the Polo Grounds yesterday between New York and Philadelphia broke up with a scene of the wildest disorder. It was the first game of the season, and there were no policemen on the field, as Commissioner Blngham took the same action as he did at the bicycle races in Madison Square Garden last winter, when he refused to allow uniformed policemen to attend. For a. time it looked as if there would be a serious accident, but the crowd, although bois terous, was pood natured. Except for the dam age done to cushions and benches, there was lit tle harm done. That nothing serious happened, however, was little short of a miracle. The game was uninteresting-, and when the riot started it looked as if there was no chance for the home team to win. as the score stood 3 to 0 against them. During the seventh inning many persons started to leave the grounds*. There were about twenty thousand persons present. Usually the crowd flies out through the exits, and no one attempts to go on the field until after the game is over. But yesterday afternoon the crowd, apparently realizing that there would be no police interference, rushed out on the diamond while the game was going on. The players were lost to sight and the trouble began. Bone one In the grandstand scaled out a cushion. In a moment the air was full of them. It was a regular battle of cushions. Men and women had their hats knocked off, and the mob laughed, hooted and Jeered. Several ground employes were sent out to corral the cushions, but they were tossed about like chips on a rough sea and forced to run to shelter. In a short time the field was strewn with excelsior and that was ail that there was left of a couple of hundred cushions. It is a rare sight to see a snowball flght on a baseball field, but that was the next thine on the programme. Somebody found a snowbank in the rear of the grandstand. In a minute there was a battle royal. Boys and men In the grand stand rushed down and came back with their arms full of snowballs. Those on the field Stacked their ammunition near the players* bench, and the fight began. Many a non-com batant, but interested onlooker, received an un expected lump of snow in the face or behind the ear. The tight didn't end until the supply of snow gave out. There was many a spoiled hat and collar after the fun .Tided. Finally four policemen inarched up the centre of the field. They appeared as unconcerned a* If they were marching up Broadway. The crowd hooted, yelled and scale.', scorerards and anything else at hand at the **bluecosits. ' Two boys finally were singled out and hurried toward the patrol wagon. They were taken to the West IVM street station, where they Rave their names as Joseph Biggs, of No. 208 West 143 d street, and William Miller, of No. 29& A North Fifth street. Newark. N. J. They were locked up on the charge of disorderly conduct. . The crowd finally grew tired of trying to find amusement, and tile.l out of the grounds. The mob scene fAded away as quickly as it began. It is expected that some system of police pro tection will have been installed at the Polo Grounds by this afternoon, when another game Is to be played. ROAD DEXIED WOODRUFF. Whipple Refuses Application for One Across State Land. Albany, April 11. -James B, AVhlpple. Ptatn Forest, Fish and Came Commis.-d'ner. an nounced to-day that he had denied the applica tion of ex-I.leutennnt (iovernor Timothy 1.. Woodruff for the opening of a highway across state land to permit access to Mr. Woodruffs property in Township 4. Totten and CrossfleM Purchase, Hamilton Cunty. near Raequette Lake, where Kamp Kill Kare is situated. A first application made by Mr. Woodruff on the ground of public necessity was denied on the ground that Mr. Woodruff had access to his property through another highway. The second application was based on an old statute under which tlve acres in every hundred gold were ti> bS reserved for highway purposes. Commissioner Whipple holds that it is not at all dear what the intention of the legislature was in reserving five acres in every hundred or how the kind should be used, that if there was ever I legal reservation for highways It has lapsed by non-use; that the state has acquired title to the land disposed of when the reservation was made and the reservation Is merged in the gen eral title of the state, and Is as though It was never made; and that in any case it could not be used for a private road. The quertlon has never been settled by th« courts, and the order of the commissioner will undoubtedly be reviewed. DIES SUDDENLY IX HOTEL Dream Artmses Daughter. Who Finds Mother Had Expired. Mrs. Barak C Anderassfc tlfty-six years old. died rarly this morning at the Hotel liotham. No. 4 Fast 2Sth street. Mrs. Anderson came from an old Baltimore family. She came to this city from Baltimore yesterday to visit her daughter, Mrs. j. P. Case, who lives at the hotel. Mrs. Anderses) wns apparently in good health, and Immediately upon her arrival her daughter suggested that they go for a walk. They were out for some time, but retired early. Early this morning. Mrs. Case said, she had a peculiar dream, which awakened her. She tried |O arouse her mother, but could not. I'vion further investlKatUm she found the older woman dead. Mrs. Case then became hysterical, and ran to the window and shoutetl for help. Tiie neighborhood was soon in an uproar, and many were under the Impression that murder had been committed. Dr Russell Bellamy, the house surgeon, was summoned. He said Mia. Anderson had di«t> from THAW JURY STILL OUT DISAGREEMENT LIKELY. Rumored That Majority Favor Ver dict of Guilty. No verdict was reached by the Thaw jury yesterday, and they were locked up until 10:30 this morning:. Justice FltxGerald had remained within cnll all evening. He announced that he would givs> the Jury until 11 :3<> — a half hour longer than the previous night — before declaring an adjourn ment. No word coming from the Jurors at that hour, he ordered them locked up. They had then been deliberating over thirty hours. While there was no means ot* learning th* true state of affairs, It was the general opinion that the jury was divided upon tbe question of Thaw's sanity at the time he killed White, and that the majority favored a verdict of guilty. probably of lesser severity than that of murder In the first degree. It was said by lawyers that there were few cases in the history of jurisprudence where % jury had remained out for such a length of time) without reporting a verdict or that they could not agree. It was accepted as evidence that there -was a group of men who had determined that a verdict should be reached If possible. The general impression, however, was that ther* would be a disagreement. The two Mrs. Thaws, the Countess of Yar mouth and Mrs. Carnegie waited until th» las* moment before leaving the Criminal Courts Building. They were greatly disheartened, and, traces of the strain of waiting for a decision showed plainly in their subdued manner. JI'RY IN KOERN'ER CASE. In discussing thft remarkable length of time) the jury had been out a lawyer recalled only on* instance in recent years when a jury had de bated a rasa so long. That was on the second trial of Wiiliam Jay Koerner for killing his sweetheart. Rose Alice Redgate. At th* first trial in February-. 1897, he had been found guilty of murder in the first degree after two hours* consideration of the evidence. At the second trial In March. lSt*R. the jury returned a v*r dict of murder in th<» second degree after be ing out five and a half hours. The extra.. rdinary interest that the trial bast aroused was shown by the crowds that gathered about the Criminal Courts Building as the hour of lfteSQ approached. The largest crowd was on the White street side, where the Thaw fam ily usually enter, but there was nearly as larg* a gathering on the other side of the building to Thaw as he crossed th* "Bridge ai sij;hs." It was a bedraggled set of men that stalked from the jury room about 7 o'clock yesterday morning and wended their way to the Broad ■ -ntral H>tel for breakfast. They were glum and out of humor; their clothes hung in their steps were heavy. It was plain that s. Miie of them had passed a sleepless night. Two noara later, when they returned to resume their deliberations, they had gTeatly spruced] up la appearance and manner; a good breakfast and necessary ablutions had made them feel more chipper, and they showed it. The courtroom was thrown open shortly after 1« »:-'.< v o'clock. District Attorney Jeromo and the various counsel for the defence dropped hi one by one. Outside of the reporters, there were not so many persons in tho courtroom, JI'RY ASKS FOR EXHIBITS. At 11 oreiocH there was a buzz of excitement. The Jury riled Into the room and took their ■ 'red places. Justice FitiOerald came In and Thaw was brought from the waiting room real <>f 0M courtroom. It developed that the jury had sent In a request for some of the exhibits in the case and to hear certain read. A communication from the jury asking for the following exhibits has been received." said, the court, and he read: "First, the plan of tha roof garden; second, defendant's letters A to I; third, the Coassfoci letter: fourth, the \r*ll and codicil: fifth, the Pelmas hypothetical question. -'xth. the Jerome hypothetical question." There was n.-> ob Jet dual from either side, and the jury aakfil that the testimony of Meyer C>hen. the song writer, wlv> was one of tha prosecattoafs witnesses of the shooting, be read. Following th.ir they asked for the testimony of Paul Brudt the fireman, who took ThaWa re votver from hi'ii; the testimony of Warren I'a\w>n. another witness of the shooting; of Henry F. I ■ witness; of Thomas F. Lynch. Dennis Wright and John Anthony. the three doomea at the Tenderloin police «ta •' Mrs. Kvelyn Thaw and of Thomas Mc js regards the events attending tha shotting. The reading of such a mass of testimony for a Jury's information Is declared to be> without parallel. Ir t.w.k until 1;9B oVloek. when tha jurors retired to their room to eat luncheon. Bl>f Olstsnn was rife aa to what it all meant. As there could be no question as to the way in which Thaw had killed his vl.*!m. it seemed as H the only possible room for argument was as to whether- Thaw's manner exhibited sanity or insanity, or whether the shooting? was dona with deliberation, or. m the heat of passion. suddenly. The probability that the Jurors were divided over the question of Thaw's mental condition was strengthened when the testimony of tha doorman. Lynch, was asked for. It was Lynch who said that Thaw had told htm h» heard children's voices crying for aid while he was In a cell in the Tenderloin station. These voices. tt appeared from the testimony of the> other police witnesses, might have been those of ■women of the half-world who were in cells In another part of the lock-up. EXAMINE TESTIMONY OF ALJENIST3L After recess the Jury was still anxious for more information, and asked that the testimony of Pr. WagneT and Dr. Evans as to their visits to Thaw In the Tombs be read to them, as well as that part of the Court's summing up which bore on th-ir testimony. The Judge's charge read: Two of the experts called by the defence testi fied to a physical examination made of th* de fendant and to nets and conversations which they claimed to have had with him subsequent to the tragedy at a time when, in their opinion, he was insane. The dates of these examination!* were August 4 and 21 and September lt>, one of these experts having been present upon all three occasions, and the other only having been in attendance upon the last two visits. rvola rations made by the defendant to an In sanity expert on an examination made subse quent to t"'fte homicide to test the defendant's mental condition at the time of such examina tions are competent as bearing upon his condi tion at that time and may be stated by the ex pert where such declarations enter into the basis of the experts' opinion of tbe defendant's mental condition at the time of such examination. Opinions of experts ar« presented as an aid to the jury and are to be considered by you h> connection with all the evidence in th* case. The standing, learning, ability and experience of the experts should be considered by you. and on that, as on everything else, the quality, not tbe quantity, of the evidence is of material value. A little later the Jury asked that a prutf of Mr. Delmas's summing up be read, bat JuatJc* FitaGeraid told them they war* Bssssjfc judges
