Ninth street, Brooklyn, told the police of the Fifth avenue station, Brooklyn, lat last night that In the afternoon two well dressed men had entered his home, struck his wife with a blackjack, bound and gagged her and after an hour's ran sacking of his house had departed with i'i0 worth of gold. Complaint had been made before, he said, because he was not at home, and his wife, daughter, a neighboring physician and friends had forgotton to do It. According to Mrs. Demonet. she, was alone in the three story and base ment houe at 4:30 o'clock when two young men. both wearing light over coats, black derbies and brown-simts, came to the door. One held his hand to his Jaw and complained that he had a toothache. Mr.. Demonet Invited them into the otllce, saylitg her husband was out at his other otllce, but would return shortly. She left them in the teceptlon room and went down to the dining Mum In the basement- As she walked through this room she heard a sound and turned to receive a blow from the blackjack which knocked her down. Then the two men grahlied her. got clothesline, tied her, gagged her and rolled her under the dining room table. I She was conscious enough to know' that Immediately thereafter they liegan j a searcli of the house which lasted at , least an hour nnd resulted in every closet, drawer, chest and every other storing place being turned inside out with all their contents scattered. Then they depatted with only gold leaf. Violet, a seventeen-year-old daugh ter, got back from high school at t; o'clock, discovered her mother utulei the dining room table, released her and summoned I)r IJejo from ne.t door. Dr. Demonet said he was detained on business downtown until 11 o'clock and the tlrst thing he knew about the burglary and lobbery was when he got home.

KOCH IlKPOHTKRS TESTIFY Defence Will Probably Assert That Magistrate Has Xo Jurisdiction. Maglstiate Kernochan Issued n sum mons yesterday calling upon Mayor (Jaynor to appear before him In tho Chief Magistrate's Court nt .100 Mul berry street on Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock There Magistrate Kernochan will hear the criminal libel charge made against the Mayor by Italph Pulitzer, son of the late Joseph Pulitzer and president of the Pres Publishing Com pany, owner of the World. The summons will be served this morning If possible. The .Magistrate determined that tho hearing yesterday afternoon on the ap plication of Howard Taylor, attorney for Mr. Pulitzer, who accuses the Mayor defaming the memory of his father In n speech at the South Brooklyn Board of Trade on February 4. should be secret. In that all newspaper re porters should be buried. He mod Uled this to permit four reporters who had been summoned as witnesses and representatives of the plaintiff to be present. The hearings at the Ksex I M.uket court had been public and Mr. Pulitzer himself hnd issued a statement of his reason for the action So soon as the chief Magistrate's court room had been cleared Mr. Taylor, who was accompanied by John Fletcher, Mr. Pulitzer's private secretary, several employees of the newspaper and Deputy Assistant District Attorney Lookhart, who had the c.ise In the Kssex Market court, arose and was Interrupted by the Magistrate as he was about to speak. "I have decided to Issue this sum mons." Judge Kernochan said, "and the only question is as to the time when !t should be returnable." The Magistrate said he wanted to go to Virginia next week on private busi ness, not to return until next Thurs day. Mr. Taylor said he wanted to go out to Colorado on a hunt. There was some talk about F-lday, and tlnally the date, Thursday, 4 o'clock, was settled 11)1011. Then the newspaper repot ters who had heard the speech or had received typewritten copies of the same, from the Mayor's stenographeis In Brooklyn were called upon to swear to state ments made by them, nil of which agired substantially William N. Beazell. reporter for the U'orM, swore that he had asked early on February t where he could get a copy of the speech and was told that the Mayot's stenographers would give It out In Brookln. He said he was thus informed by a representative of the Mayor. Another World reporter told of hear ing the paragraph which it is alleged constitutes the criminal libel In char acterizing the manner In which Joseph Pulitzer made his lortune and further gave the name of the otttcltl stenog raphers who handed out the copy of the speech. A third reporter said lie got a copy of the speech and telephoned It Into his newspaper in Manhattan, and a fourth man did the same. That ended the court proceedings ex cept a debate over who should serve the summons. The Magistrate said it was usual for the complainant to do It. but Mr. Taylor raised his hand In protest. "1 hope I will lie excused," he said. "Could It not be artnnged In some other way?" There was some further tnlk and then It whs agreed that George I.. St. Clair, court attendant, should receive the writ with directions to serve It this morntng. St. flair took It. but as there is little likelihood of the Mayor being at the City Hall to-day, unless he comes specially to receive the court attendant, service may go over until Monday. The complaining witness was In no particu lar huriy about It anyway. "Suppose he does not respond to this siimmoin.'.'' asked Mr. Taylor. "We will not entertain the supposi tion," said the Magistrate "The law provides for that continginey. A war rant may issue Immediately thereafter." The complaining witness will be com pelled to disclose his case next Thurs day unless the defendant ahotild waive examination, and there are hints that a spirited legal fight will begin at once. Stephen Baldwin of Brooklyn, who Is to represent the Mayor, will at once at tack the Jurisdiction of the Magistrate. The probable allegation will be that It any net was committed which comes under the Penal Jjiw It was In Kings county nnd not In New York. Until the service of the summons neither the Mnyor nor the counsel will be officially In the case. Nothing could be learned yesterday as to their Inten tions. CUPID TAKES A DAY OFF.

If Postmaster-General Burleson has his way every fourth class postmaster In the United States, 35,000 In all, will have to take an examination to show his fitness. This will amount to a call upon this vast army of Ueptlbllcan otllceholders to es tablish their ability or submit to the ax. These fourth class postmasters were covered Into the classification service by President Taft In the closing days of his administration and the Wilson Cab inet ouicers have been overwhelmed with requests for the revocation of this Uxec Utlve order. Fourth class postmasters' salaries do not exceed Jl.OO'i a jear. President Wilson's attitude on this question lias not been disclosed, but hu may be guided to a considerable extent by the Judgment of his Postmaster General. To a representative of Tub Su'N to day Postmaster-Genera! Burleson said he agreed with President Taft that fourth clttss postmasters should be ap pointed to the classified service; that Is, their tenure of otllce to depend on good nnd satisfactory service. He added that President Taft had not gone far enough and before making his sweeping execu tive order should have determined the Illness of the Incumbents. "I believe In the civil service Idea with reference to both first, second, third and fourth class postmasters," said Mr. Burleson. "Fourth class postmas ters, though, will be given the first at tention of the Department. "The largest number of these were appointed for the most pernicious of political activity, without reference to their fitness. I believe we can formu late an examination that will determine the fitness of fourth class postmasters and ultimately extend the system to nil other postmasters." Postmaster-General Burleson said that he had appointed a committee to take up the matter LA FOLLETTE IN FAVOR AGAIN.

As Mr. Ii Follette was leaving he refused to my what he had discussed with the President or even to admit that their subject had been genernl polities. The Senator was evidently In a happy mood.

Not only should our blasphemy laws be aliollshed. but all laws which profess to protect any religion from criticism. Irony nnd ridicule."

"1 am not surprised at the outcome of the trial; 1 have been ex pecting some tragic happening all my life. After the way In which the Ameri can people treated my father I could only expect that something of a dire nature would happen to his son. "The American nation allowed my father to dlw penniless at the age of 4S and I had to take care of his family. They took from my father the gift of the discovery of ether; they fought the civil war on ether and they gave my father nothing. If every man. woman and child who has been and Is being saved from pain through ether were to give us our due tho Morton family would be the richest In the world. "1 am the victim of nature's law of compensation. In return for the be stowal of great good to humanity by my father I mu-t suffer great pain, so that a balance between good and evil may be established." Dr. Morton had been pacing up and down, smoking a cigar as he talked; he had betrayed no emotion. But when he heard the click of steel In the hands of the marshal he gave an Invol untary start and over his face came a look of utter bewilderment as if hs could not believe.

We shared resonslbllity nllke; no one was more to hlnme than another or the acts which formed tho basis of the charge. "Up to the very last minute I had no doubt as to the outcome of the trial; I fully expected to be acquitted." He said that he still believes firmly In tho possibilities of tho mines In Canada, the promotion of which has cost him his liberty for on year, unless higher courts or tho President Inter vene "The one mistake wo made," declared Mr. Hawthorne, "was a commercial ons In that we did not develop the mines more rapidly. We were partly pre vented from doing this by tho great depth of tho mines." As he stopped speaking a deputy mar shal approached with u pair of hand cuffs, Mr, Hawthorne quickly put his cigarette Kick Into his mouth and held out his hand, As the manacles were snnpped he turned his head away and looked out of the window.
