Speaker Joseph <i Cannon and a party of Congressmen who are making an au tomobile trip, stopped at King of Prussia Inn, where "Jack" O'Brien, the pugilist, is staying. Mr. Cannon went inside and had several glasses of punch, and upon being asked if he would not like to have a "go" with O'Brien, replied: "Wei!, I'm not Johnson, but I might try it." Accordingly the two went out into the roadway and O'Brien showed the Speaker how to make a few passes. They struck a few light blows) while Congressmen Wanger and Thomas yelled: "Knock his head off. "Uncle Joe.'" Mr. Cannon was lively with his hands, but slow on his feet "You'll have to be careful of me Mr. O'Brien." he said, and the pugilist stopped pressing him.

The "Lokal AnzejgerV Con stantinople correspondent says that he learns from persons In high authority that the sudden recall of the French Ambassador, M. Constant, and the Russian Ambassador. M.

He adds that the payments were ef fected through Pangiri Bey. one of the directors of the Ottoman Hank, who recently disap peared. According to the correspondent, the archives also contained comptomising letters and receipts for money signed by Kiamil Pacha, former Grand Vizier, which led to his arrest, and h" asserts that evidence against Ferid Pacha, Min ister of the Interior, also was found, and that this started a violent agitation in fa\o r of fOX - ing him to retire from the cabinet. ■'It is also proved." th" correspondent says in conclusion, "that Tewflk Pacha, ex-Grand Vizier and now Ambassador at London, played a double role.

Judge Mulqueen remanded tha prisoner to the Tombs for one week, when ho will he sentenced. The maximum penalty is twenty years. The conviction of Darragh follows the first trial of an automobile operator in this city oa a criminal charge in connection with the death of a victim of his machine. The indictment ; against him was found under the amended sec tion of the code, which reads substantially 83 follows: "The killing of a human being by an act Im minently dangerous to others, and evincing a depraved mind, regardless of human life, al though without a premeditated design, is pun ishable by a verdict of murder in the first de« gree." N" JUROR FOR LESSER VERDICT. Darragh was indicted for murder in the first degree. It was learned after the trial that the jury on their first ballot stood ten for con viction for manslaughter in the first degree, one for murder in the first degree and one for murder in the second decree. The jury was out one hour and fifty-five minutes, and at no tima did any of the jurors express a desire for aa acquittal or for a verdict less serious than that on which the chauffeur finally was convicted. James D. McClelland, who made the closinff argument in Darra^h's behalf, cautioned the jury not to be Influenced in reaching a verdict ] by the intense public feeling existing against automobile speeders.

PRISONER REALIZES SITUATION. After the jury had retired Darragh seemed suddenly to realize the dangerous position ha was in. and his attitude for the first time ia his trial snowed traces of melancholy and suf fering. He was crouching in hi? chair, with his head bowed down, when the jury filed baclc into the box and For-man Abraham Levine an nounced in response to a question from Cleric Spinney that the Jury had agreed on a verdict. "We find the defendant guilty of manslaugh ter in the first degree." said the foreman. !>,irr - brightened perceptibly aa lie heard the words that t»!d him that he was not doomed to the death penalty and answered cheerfully the questions of the clerk before ha was taken to the Tombs to await sentence.
