Boston. lass BB|tBBSa was based on to
day's sensational developments at the trial,
trfcjeh m moved the auditors that the cus
tcnary scenes of disorder, laughter and
ctecring changed to a burst" of weeping.
Reputable business and professional men
of Tours on the &tar.d at to-day's session
painted d'Aulby and his wife as the' In
caixation of honesty end charity, declaring
t»j2.i their ministering to the •wants of the

jrred and esteemed throughout the coun
iL Diet, president of th» Tours Associa
tion cf Lawyers, who drew up the contract
for the sals of the picture "Antiope" to the
late Mr. Paine, testified that d'Aulby had
Insisted en the insertion of a clause in the
contract to the effect that he could not
BBjarjaaaee the authenticity of the picture.
31. Wat also said that neither d'Aulby nor
hi? wife had any idea of business or of the
•value of meney. of which they received
$I?.'"**) almort every year from Boston.
They were passionately fend of music, and
lived a happy family life until Mrs. Paine
entered d'Aulhy's life, which until then had
been irreproachable.
D'Aulby. the witness declared, was the
victim of the wiles of others who were now
trying to ruin him. As M. Diot detailed in-
Ftances of d'Aulby's alleged charities sob
bing was heard in various parts of the
courtroom. The witness said that it was
elirars d"Anlby*s intention to forward the
wine for which Mr. Paine had given him
Every -witness called by the prosecution
to-day turned out to be a defender of the
defence, while the testimony of M. Des
mculln, a member of the jury of the Beaux
Arts Salcn, Paris, plainly produced an im
jressicn most favorable to the accused. •
ML Dutillet. who was delegated by the
duchess to settle up her affairs with D'Aul
•by, testified that the latter refused to r.e
potiare with him. referring him to his law
yer. D'Aulby's attorney, the witness said,
fucrested the payment by Mrs. Paine of
52QG,000>. but the witness could net say
whether the money requested was to be in
payment for the return of the letters al
leged to have been written to D'Aulby by
the duchess or in settlement of the picture
contract, cr for both considerations.
XL DutQlet understood that it was Mme.
D'Aulby who had insisted upon the pay
ment. Dime. D'A-:by did not like this
ftatercsnt from the witness and, standing
•up. protested against his statements m
vcivfcg her. As usual at these interrup
tions, "here was a great commotion among
the spectators. Special importance at
tacked to Dutillet's statement that he could
— swear that Mrs. Paine's letters were a
consideration in the negotiations, as the
prosecution has sought to establish a con
r.ecticn between the?* negotiations and the
caie of Alexandre Tscherniedieff, who is
•under arrest in London charged with taking
part in a. conspiracy to blackmail the
<st2chess. D'Aulby has sworn that he does
not know T?c.;"eniiedieff.
D'Aulby, who. under the French system,
is constantly questioned on various points
brought cut by witnesses, shows signs of
breaking down as a result of the ordeal.
As M Diet and others lauded him to-day
D'Aulby sat with his head bowed on his
isees, a handkerchief hiding his features.
It is announced that he has spent eight
months of his life in prison in. composing
zz'isic and writing his memoirs.

Premier Canalejas Wins a
Notable Victory.
Measure Prohibits Further Re
ligious Establishments for a ,
Period of Two Years.
Madrid. Dec. After a stormy, all-night
session, the Chamber of Deputies to-day
pass-ed the government's "padlock bill" by
a vote of 108 to 20.
This is a notable victory for Premier
Canalejas, obtained after a bitter fight in
volving not only the opposition in Spain,
but the Vatican, whose seal of disapproval
was set upon the legislation even before it
had been submitted to the Cortes.
As originally drawn, the bill prohibited
the creation of further religious establish
ments in the country until the revision of
the Concordat had been completed or defi
nite laws on the subject passed. In the
Senate the government accepted the amend
ment of Baron fiacre Liirio limiting the
period, of interdiction against new congre
gations to two years. The Senate passed
the measure on November*4. the vote being
149 to 58. The majority in the upper cham
ber was greater than had been anticipated.
Its passage in the lower house had been
The objection to the measure by the Holy
See was raised on the contention that,
whereas negotiations were under way for
the revision of the Concordat of 1851. Spain
could not in good faith adopt any legisla
tion adversely affecting- the congregations
until these negotiations had been concluded.
It was claimed that in the mean time the
status quo should be maintained.
Canalejas insisted upon a programme of
religious liberty, and maintained that the
matter covered by the "padlock Dili" was.
not properly a subject of diplomatic ex
changes between Madrid and Rome. In this
attitude he has appeared to have the sup
port of King Alfonso. Much bitterness was
engendered, and Canalejas, himself an
avowed Catholic, bore the brunt of the
Clerical opposition. As a consequence of
the unchanged positions of the government
and the Vatican, the negotiations over the.
Concordat wer» interrupted and the rela
tions between Madrid and the Holy See se
verely strained.
The final fight way waged until the Depu
ties were pretty well exhausted physically.
Amendment after amendment was voted
down. At 7 o'clock this morning Canalejas
intervened, and in a strong speech dis
claimed any hostility upon the part of the
government toward the religious orders.
He insisted, nevertheless, upon the neces
sity of passing the bill in order that -the
government might resume complete nego
tiations with Rome.
Better Salaberry. the Integrali?t, respond
ing, declared that the Opposition would
fight to the. biter end, but Yasquez Mel'a y
Candido, leader of the Carlists, finally sur
rendered, saying that he did so out of
pity for the stenographers, after, however,
registering a final protest on behalf of
the Pope, who, he said, would be grieved
After the final vote was taken the Cham
ber adjourned.

Colombia, Panama and the little repub
lics jast north of these countries, came in
