HOPES FOR ACQUITTAL N an Patterson's Counsel Have a Card Up Their Sleeve. MAN SAW SHOOTING COUAT TO ADJOURN OVER THANKSGIVING UNTIL MONDAY. Coroner's physician Regarded Young's Death a Suicide-Pound Black Marks on Finger. NEW YORK, November 23.-When the trial of Nan Patterson was resumed today her attorney, Abraham Levy, declared that although the prosecution has erected several strong barriers, through which the defense will have to batter its way to se oure the acquittal of Miss Patterson, he had no fear that they would not succeed. He asserted that he would. bring for ward a witness who would tell a convinc ing story of having actually seen the shooting, no matter how strong the evi dence of the people to the effect that no one was within range of vision of the cab when the fatal shot was fired. This witness was a passenger on a street car passing across West Broadway, a short distance from the scene of the tragedy, he said, and in his narrative he will swear from where he stood, though his glance was but momentary, he saw * Nan Patterson's companion in the cab grasping a revolver in his hand and struggling with the young woman, who was endeavoring to wrest it from him. To Adjourn Until Monday. At the close of today's proceedings an adjournment will be taken until next Monday, as it is the custom of the court not to reconvene on a Friday after a holiday. Before the opening of today's proceedings Mr. Rand announced that none of the most important witnesses would be called before Monday, and that the greater part of today would be taken up with the expert testi mony of physicians and other witnesses by whom it will be attempted to prove that Young could not have shot himself. While vitally important to the prosecu tion's case, this testimony will not have the human interest motive that will be found in the narrative of Mrs. Young, John Millin. the bookmaker's former partner, and a dozen other witnesses. Coroner's Physician Testifies. The skeleton which was brought into the case yesterday for the use of Coroner's Physician O'Hanlon in describing the course of the bullet which caused Young's death, was again brought into the court room When the trial was resumed today. The ghastly exhibit was suspended near the witness stand when Mr. Levy. for the de fense. continued the cross-examination of the coroner's physician, which was Inter rupted by the adjournment of court yes terday afternoon. Mr. Levy, in his cross-examination. led Dr. O'Hanlon back over the ground covered in his direct testimony yesterday. Th. witness described in detail the autopsy which he performed on Young's body. "If you had regarded the case as one of homicide would you have made a more a careful examination?" asked Mr. Levy. "I did not so regard it then-as a case of hcmicide." "Did you regard it as a case of suicide?" "I did," the witness replied. Black Marks on Young's Finger. Dr. O'Hanlon said that while performing the autopsy he found three black marks en the second finger of Young's rIght hand and he stripped off pieces of skin, which were turned over to the district attorney. The witness was not permitted to answer a Question as to whether the black marks aere made by gunpowder. Another question as to whether he found any indications of gunpowder when he ex amined Nan Patterson's hands soon after the shooting also met with an objection from the prosecution, and the court di rected the wItness not to answer. At the conclusion of Dr. O'Hanlon's examination that part of his testimony in which he said that he considered the case to be one of suicide and not homicide, when he per formed the autopsy, was stricken from the record on motion of Mr. Rand. Counsel for the defense took an exception to the ruling of Justice Davis on this point. HAVE A CONVINCING STORY. Passenger on Street Car Avers He Saw Tragedy. Special Dispatch to The Evening Star. NEW YORK, November '3.-Though the prosecution has erected several strong bar riers through which the counsel of Nan Patterson. in their effort to secure her ac quittal of the charge of murdering Young. will have to batter theIr way if they at tempt to found their defense upon the testl tuony of eye witnesses, they declared today that they would succeed. Mr. Levy asserted today that he would bring forward a witness who would tell a convincing story of having actually seen the shotng= no mste how sarong the evidence of people to the effect that no one was within range of vision of the cab when the fatal shot was fired. This wit ness was a passenger on a street car passing across West Broadway, a short distance from the scene of the tragedy. In his narration he will swear that from where he stood, though his glance was but momentary, lhe saw Nan Patterson's com pani on in the cab grasping a revolver In his hand and struggling with ~je young woman, who was endeavoring t~ wrest it from him. At the close of today's proceedings, ad' adjournment will be taken until Monday, as it is the custom of the court r.ot to re convene on Friday after a holiday. This will allow the young woman four days' rest from the strain of her ordeal, and she admits that the interlude will be exceed ingly welcome to her. There are so rrany ghastly features in volved in the presentation of evidence that tax upon her nerves that after a rest she is sure she can face even a. greater strain. She will have to undergo one next week, wrhen the wife of Young will take the stand and tell her story of her struggle to min her husband back to his family. Yesterday Afternoon Proceeding. Yesterday the sensational trial settled down to the routine of building up the mountain of evidence that the prosecu tion depends upon to overwhelm the show girl with the baby mouth and misty eyes. There are multitudes of witnesses, and as this is a case where the difference be tween proven guilt and the uncertainty that means acquittal lies in the smallest details there is not one whose account fails of tremendous interest. The day was devoted to adducing the minutiae of theecab ride and the state ments the woman made at the moaneq phen she is assuamed to have been labo ngu under excitement that clothes her every utterance with imponee. This was followed by the tetimohyb the Arut m.eameem 3.m.net Page MESSAGETO CONGRESS The President Will Deal With Methods of Handling Trusts. FAVORSA.TRON .iA!Y LEGISLATION IN BEMALF OF OUT LYING POSSESSIONS. Will Review Steps Taken to Forward the Movement for Arbitration of International Disputes. Not having decided what course he will pursue as to tariff revision, the Presidea will not, as already stated, discuss the tariff in his forthcoming annual message to Congress. H- will leave that for a special message to the present Congress or to an extra session, if be decides to call one. Next to the tariff in public interest will be the trusts and the existing methods of handling them, together with the laws covering them. The President has had a number of con sultations with Attorney Geneiial Moody, Commissioner, Garfield of the corporations bureau, Secretary Metcalf of the Depart ment of Commerce and Labor and Senator Knox, former Attorney General. He has obtained much information from them, and some of this, with his views, will be incor porated in his message. There is a statement, from a pretty good authority, that the President has decided to recommend, sooner or later, to Congress some changes in the laws that created the bureau of corporations. The President has given much study to the question of pub lishing some of the figures obtained by this bureau as to the business of corporations. Both he and Mr. Garfield agree that it is a difficult matter to determine just what part of the reports that are gathered may safely and properly be made public, taking into consideration the interests of the public and the business concerns that are involved. The President is said to be not at all in clined to the idea that all the facts that are gathered by the bureau as to the business of the big corporations shall be kept ex clusively for the use of the President of the United States. He realizes that such a course would place in the hands of . the President an immense power. It likewise gives to the party in power a great power. Just what the President may say along these lines, either in his coming message or in the future, cannot now be foreshadowed, as he is reserving this part of the message to be written toward the last. For a Strong Navy. The President will not miss the oppor tunity given him in his message to im press upon Congress his well-known views as to a continuation of the present policy of building up a strong, modern navy. He will urgently suggest to Congress that the policy be strengthened and put in position for permanency so far as that is possible. That is one of his pet subjects. He has had several talks with Secretary - Morton, who agrees with him. He will again urge the construction of a naval base in the Philippines. He thinks it should be located in Subig bay.: The Isthmian Canal. The President will review the work that has been done during the year by the isth mian canal commission, and will make some recommendations along this line. He will present a report to Congress of"the commission showing the condition of the work to date and the prospects for future operations. His message will show that the commission is not doing a great deal of actual shoveling of dirt, but it is steadily engaged in scientifically calculating on just how much dirt is to be removed, and from what places It is to be removed. When these calculations are completed the com mission will be in shape to make contracts with contractors or to go ahead with the work strictly under government auspices. Review of Foreign Relations. A review of the foreign relations of the government will be a part of the Presi dent's message, as is usual in all annual messages. This will show that at the pres ent time the United States has the most cordial relations with all of the nations of the world, and that it has no particular ly serious question pending for settlement. In this connection the President will dis cuss some of the international features growing out of the war between Japan and Russia, and will refer to some of the offi cial expressions of Secretary Hay on the subject of what constitutes contraband and kindred topics. Statehood for Territories. The President will not find it necessary to discuss the subject of -statehood to any extent, as it is pretty well understood that he gave his sanction to the sfxeasure pend lng in Congress for the creation of two new state out of the four legally constitut ed territories. ThIs will proposes to make one state out of -Arizona and New Mexico and one out of Indian territory and Okla homa. Despite the republican program as to statehood, there will be a hard fight to prevent the carrying out of this plan. The people of Arizona are almost unanimously opposed to being put into a state with Ne.w Mazrto, =n4.?hee Is consIalan le op position to such a course in New Me:sies. The people of the Indan -territory de miet want to be attached to Oklahoma in a sin gl-e state, largely because Oklahoma would be able to ottiote them and take care of their 'own interests accordingly. One feature as to statehood which the President will touch upon in his message is that relating to the rights sa privilege. of Indians in the Indian territory. He will recommend that when the new state is cre ated laws shall be passed that will guar antee the rights of the Indians in every respect and not leave them subject to the caprice of state legislation. As to Alaskr, the President will outline a policy of liberal treatment for the people of that territory. It was largely through his influence that some laws were passed at the last session of Congress tending to the development of the territory, and the citizens there still look to him to help them in the cming session of Congress in pessing some of the pending bills. The principal measures are appropriations for the construction of roads to the interior, and for the creation of at least one mnore judicial distriqt The rights of the Indians *rill be touched upon in a amost comprehnsive manner b~y the Preident. who has taken a friendly in terest in the red men for pesas and wants to se them mobc a statseof ineedece and conmMenee, The Philipines -will come in for a con siderable portion of the Presidents mes sags. He will refer to the desmand that there should be a lower rate of duty en goods coming from the lslands to thjis country. He will likewise ask fr soe lgislation in the interests of Porto Rise. 3ubnalt fArbitamon. The een.. bf internatlona arbitration and the steps thes Predirat a tae within the mot eme,tO assan eig maa~ PERHAPS lized nations will also claim a considerable part of the message. While the President will urge a larger and more modern navy he will do so upon the ground that it is a safeguard against war and does not follow that this Idea at all conflicts with the pushing of international arbitration where ever possible. The condition of the treasury, immigra tion, the relations of capital and labor, public lands Fnd similar subjects will re ceive the attention of the President. FALLING INTO OLD WAYS. Bad Sanitary Conditions in Cuban Cities Reported. Bad sanitary conditions in Santiago and other places in Cuba have at last become such a menace, not only to the health of Cuba, but that of the outside world, that the United States government has felt called on to address the Cuban govern ment on the subject. The United States charge at Havana has been instructed to call the attention of the Cuban govern ment to this situation .and express the hope that prompt and' thorough relief will be forthcoming. In a recent report received here the description of the con dition of the streets In Santiago. shows the seriousness of the condition. It is stated that there is practicaly no drain age, and that water is allowed to stand in the streets for days at a time. The fact that President Palma in his recent mes sage to the Cuban congress asked for an appropriations of $201,0t0 for Improving the sanitation of such towns as needed it leads to the hope that the American rep resentations on the subject may have the desired effect. MARINES FOR THE ISTHMUS. Battalion Soon to Be Sent Down on the Prairie. A battalion of marires is being organized at the navy yard, League Island, for a tour of duty on the Isthmus of Panama. The n.arines now on the isthmus have been there over a year, and it is not deemed wise to keep them there any longer. The U. S. S. Prairie will take the newly or ganized battalion to Colon and bring back the other battalion. The versel will start on her trip south whtn she completes her present service on the coast of Massachu setts in connection with the odicial trial of the armored cruiser Pennsylvania. Lieut. Col. Thomas N. Wood will have c< mmand of the new battalion and will be assisted by Capt. F. 3. Schwable, assistant quartermaster; Capts. W. N. McKelvey, R. C. Berkeley and 3. F. McGill, First Lieuts. H. D. F. Long, W. H. Pritchett, E. B. Miller andl H. H. Kip and several younger offiets. DEPATWBTS TO BE CLOSED. Some Clerks Petitioned for a Half Holi day Today.

In some of the deDartments petitions were sent to the Secretaries to close the offces this af ternoon, thus giving a day and a half for the observance, but after a consultation among the heads of all departments it was decided not to grant the request. However, General Oliver, acting secretary of war, today authorised the bureau chiefs of the War Department to excuse at 8 o'clock this afternoen all the employee. of their bureaus whose services can be spared without detriment to the public service.

He denied that -his name was "Dove." but admitted he was In a South Joliet boarding house Saturday night. From an unguarded remark the prisoner is said to have made the police think that if he is not identified as "Dove" he may give them valuable evidence regarding that man. In telling of,his stop in the boarding house he said he had gone to a room in .which a man lay in bed. When he opened the door the stranger buried his face in thelbdclothes. The piano tuner says he t'jeT withdrew and saw no more of the Onun tion that a stranger e:aetly Ittins .thciption .of "Dove was seen at 8ockdale. police from Joliet started for that town today. Rockdale is three miles south of Joliet, to which city Foreman Nolan of the Rock Is land coal yards telephoned early today that the suspect had been loitering around the village during the evening .and later had started away, walking on the railway tacks. Nolan said the suspect wore a light over coat and carried a canvas covered suit case. So sure was the foreman that the stranger was "D6ve" that he armed the section men-and farmets near the village and the crowd started in pursuit. The _ first instance in which the name "Dove" appears to have been directly con nected with the fugitive came to light to day, when a package of cotton batting ad dressed to "Mr. Dove" was found to have been delivered on Saturday at 208 Gardner street, Joliet, from a department store in Joliet. Late in the day a delivery wagon brought the package to the house. The package contained cotton batting sqch as is used by surgeons in stanching wounds. The package was declined, as no such person as Mr. Dove was known at the house. The parcel was returned to the de partment store. There none of the clerks remembers the person who made~ the pur chase. Suspect Declares Arrest an Outrag. JOLIDT.

VIS OR THE TARIFF The President is the Reeipient of Many Opinions. WAS WRONGLY QUOTED BECETARY SHAW SUGGESTS EX TENDING DRAWBACK SYBTEY. Believes That Exporter of American Manufactures Would Be Thereby Materially Benedted. The President is absorbing many views on the tariff. Between letters and tele grams on the tariff and congratulations on the election the President is forced to spend a good many hours each day dictat Ing answers to those who are so thought ful as to express thempelves to him per sdnally. It is a big undertaking. The President is now t-ying to clear' up the mass of correspopdence that has been ac oumulating since the election, so that- when he returns from St.... . he will get an opportunity to work upon. his message and to talk -with his visitors. The President talked with Eugene N. Pbss of Massachusetts a few days ago. Mr. Foss advocated taffff revision, and on leav ing the White House declared that the elec tion of W. L. Douglas as governor of Mae sacliusetts was due to his advocacy of tar iff revision and reciprocity with Canada. The next day the President received a long telegram signed by business men of Boston declaring that this statement as to the election of Douglas was false in every par tfcular. The President showed this tele gram to some of his tariff revision callers a day or two ago. Mr. Foss Corrects Reports. Some Interviews were sent out from Washington attributing to Mr. Foss certain expressions alleged to have been made to him by the President. There was so much talk all over the country about the reputed viewq of the President that Mr. Foss has sent the following telegram to the White House: ."BOSTON, Mass., November 22, 1904. "Hon. Theodore Roosevelt: "Have ,not quoted you to any one. Evi dently an expression of some of my own views has been wrongfully attributed to you. E. N. FOSS." Secretary Bhaw's:Baggestions.

He Illustrates the application of the drawback law to tood products -by citing the fact that if tin plate is imported, m4nufactured into cans, fllledwitir American products and exported, a drawback Inallowed. But manufactured ca-'bf 'tila or glass cannot be imported, flled a__exported, and a drawback allow ed. There must be a manufacture from the material imported in order to allow the drawwback. He thinks the drawback right can be safely extended, and Us ap plication simplified materially. Efagnotations Corrected. Secretary Shaw said today "r yesterday discussed with a company of newspaper representatives the question of drawbacks, and authorised them to quote me as favorable to a much more lenient policy; In one or more papers I was slight ly misquoted. Under the present law tin plate can be Imported, manufactured into cans, filled and exported, and the exporter will be entitled to a drawback; but neither tin cans, nor glass Jars, nor barrels, nor boxes can be imported- filled and drawback allowed. In other words, there must be a domestic manufacture from the imported material. Hides can be Imported and manu factured- into leather, and a drawback al lowed when exported in the form of. sboes. if properly traeed, but the application of the law Js so -empiicated tlst It ponders it in some ianes ina eative and value less. I suggestd 'several ways he which the drawbacl law Could be exteoded, but I did enot Intend to commit myself in favor of entending'the law to -the extreme limit; To illustrate. I am not prepared to advocate the allowance of a refund of the duty paid on Swedish Iron ore when stoves construct ed of American Iron are exported. I used It as an extreme case." 1ails to Obtain Redress From Civil Servce i.namminnio CoL. John B. Browniow,. who was re cently dismissed from the service of thei governmnent by Postmaster General 1Wynne, acting under direction of the President. has brought the matter to the attention of the civil service commission, with a view to redress by that body. Col. Browniow believed that his dismissal was in violation of the rules of the civil aerv ice, and, according to such belief, pro tested against the action of the Postmas tor General. The clvil service commission has sent him the following reply:1 eThe commission Is in receipt of your letiter of November 19, stating that you1 were -dismnissed en Novemnber 16 from ai clerkship, class three, in the ofBoe of thei second assistnt postmaster general; that you-are firmaly cenvinced that the olhargee upon which you were dismissed'ecannot be sustained, and that rdisms..al was ja ienaae lof the ci ert lair.

AT THE WHITE HOUSE Numerous Callers on the President Today. FATHER SCHELL HEARD 0HARGS REGARDING INDIANS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. 3v. Brady of Altska to Be Beappo - ed-Addresses by Members of the Cabinet. Representative Cooper of Wisconsin. bairman of the insular affairs committee f the House of Representatives. extendod to President Roosevelt today his congratu lations on the result of the election. The President told Mr. Cooper that the result In no state was to him personally more sur prising or gratifying than that in Wiscon sin. He said be had hoped to carry the Itate. but not by so unexpected a plurality s 190.000. Mr. Cooper afterward said he had not taken up with the President any matters Df legislation that might be considered at the approaching session of Congress. He xpressed the belief that the Senate woula pass this winter the measure passed by the Fluuse at the last session providing for ex .ensive public improvements in the Philip ,ines In the form of highways, railroads. tchool houses, etc. In Chairman Cooper's )pinlan, the development of the islands and the material progress of the inhabitants lepends, in a great measure, upon the enact rnent of this law. Mr. Cooper said he did rmot confer with the President on the sub ject of the tariff in any form. Father Schell Sees the President. Rev. Fatiler Joseph Schell. who has made quite a stir in the west becatise of his al legations charging debauchery and swind ling of Winnebago Indians, was introduced at the White House today by Edward Rosewater of the Omaha Bee. The Presi dent talked a. few minutes with the pr:est and then. asked that he make a wr.tten statement as to the treatment of the In ians. This statement will be investiguted later by officials of the Indian bure:ru of the Interior Department. Mr. Rosewater was a guest of the PreAdent at luncheon In the afternoon. Father Schell has procured the indict nent of five men charged with swindling the Winnebagos. He has himself been In licted for forgery because of his activity in the case, but Mr. Rosewater and other lnfluential men are his friends and Fay they will see him through. The complairt.e to be submitted to the President by Fati. 3he1l will probably be laid before Mr. Leupp, who will become commiss:oner of J.awv ~ U In.dnih man i4 Schell proses to eent V. 4rusad. against the present treatment Af the Indians and againat tbe seltng of whisky to them. Just outside of the res rvations are many cheap saloons and low lives that profit from the government pay nents to the Indians. Mr. Rosewater pro poses to have the Nebraska legislature es ablish a zone around the reservation with n which no whisky can be sold. Father Schell is hot here representing the athollc Church In his fight, but as a pri rate citizen. He has had some trouble with igh officials of his own church during his ,harges as to the Winnebagoes. He ac used Archbishop A. Christie of Portland. re.,, and others of not acting properly in the hAndling of funds intrusted to them for ase with the Indians. Addresses of Cabinet Members. Senator Shelby M. Cullom of Illinois to lay presented to the President a committee 3f the Union League Club of Chicago, eon isting of Walla.ce Heckman, president of the organization; Judge C. S. Cutting of the probate court and Mr. Bidley. The comn ittee desired to enlist the inftuence of Mr. Rooserelt in an effort to induce John Hay, lecretary of State, to deliver an address before the Union League Club on Wash ington's birthday.
