Ij. PICKERING. Springfield, 111., April JO. Senator Begole of Belleville, Inthe committee to-ilny, moved that the World's Fair bill be considered in executlvo session of the commit tee, and Chairman Chapman so ordered. This bill, it was hoped, would be con sidered In open committee and the rule for nn executive session suspended. The. action has no special significance, however, so far as the amount ot the appropriation is concerned. 'The House bill, which Is now before the Senate Com mittee, provides for only nine Commissioners, and Governor Yates has twenty-one aggressive applicants for the nine pegs. He has indicated a desire that the .board be enlarged to at least 'nfjeen. and possibly more. Chairman Chapman will learn the executive wishes Wednesday morning, and definite action will be taken the same afternoon. An important and Influential re-en forceroent to the full amount of the appro priation was secured to-day. when Senator Corbus P. Gardner of Mcndota, here tofore In favorof reducing the amount to jl3).000v declared for the sum fixed by the House-JKO.OOO.

When the day was done they had Introduced the testimony of Rich ard Grogan's father, sister and brothers io show that there was bad .blood between the, defendant and their kinsman, and that Mr. Eastman had, during a quarrel with his brother-in-law, said: "I will shoot you for this If I have to wait five years." Professor Wood of the Harvard Medical, School testified that he received last Feb ruary from Medical Examiner Swan two en velopes, each containing a cartridge and a bullet. In one was a lire cartridge. The bul let was tested and found to contain "pure leai The other envelope contained a center fire cartridge and also a separate bullet. The bullet was found to. contain 24 per cent of tin. Professor "Wood found tin In the fragment or "bullet taken from Grogan's- body -which corresponded with 'the composition of the center-frepliullet' IntMr. Eastman's revolver. The1 Trm-nre ."bullet, which, according to Mr. Eastman's story, made the fatal wound, was. of pure lead. "When Eastman Made Threats. Mr. John Grogan was the first witness to tell of the-old quarrels between his brother and Mr. Eastman. He mentioned several Incidents, .tending to show; they were not always' oh good terms. Then ho came to" the time when Mr. Eastman" Is alleged to have said that he would shoot Richard Gro gan "if it took him five years." This was in the office ot Mr. Grogan's stable In Brookllne. The witness said": "Eastman said to Dick: 'What have you been saying to Carrie?' I got up from 1he chair and started to "go out of the office, arid told Dick not to have any trouble with' -Eastman. I was going out when" they started to wrangle. Dick said: "I don't know that It is any of your business what I have said to Carrie.' "Eastman said It was none of his busi ness whether he stayed In his house cr not; that it was Lizzie's." Quarreled About the Couklna-. "Lizzie Is Dick's wife. I heard Eastman say the food was not fit for a dog to eat, and Dick said if Eastman was a puppy he would feed him. I nlso heard .Dick make the remark that It ho (Eastman) was a pauper, he would take care of him. Dick said lie was sick and tired of Eastman and his ifamlly sponging in his house. He did not want Eastman to come Into his house any more." , "Did you hear anything further?" "Eastman threatened to shoot Dick." "Will you state just what the.men were doing when you went into the office?" Eastman In FlKhtlnn- Mood. .."Dick was standbier In the office; door and Eastman was In front of the window. He was in a fighting attitude, -with his ,flst drawn bnrk like this (illustrating). I put ;iny elbow up and pushed hlm'back toward the window and told mm to go out. tie said he would not.'-' "I told him again and then he started ,out. -He turned around to Dick as he went .out, and, shaking his fist In his face, said: I will plug you for this ir-1 nave to -wan five years.' Then, as he walked down the driveway, he repeated the remark twice.'-' "State what took place at. me swimming beach on July 4." "Dick and Eastman arid I walked over toward the Brookllne side of the beaclu The 'races were' slow In starting. Eastman kept walking' up and down to where Dick was. Finally he touched Dick and said: "Let us go home. Dick refused, and Eastman again urged him, saying the races were too slow for him. "After three races, Eastman came up and as-'ed him again, and Dick accompanied him home." It was after this that the shooting took place. Carl A. It. Ludln. manager of the lens business, testified to some reference which Mr. Eastman made to Mr. Grogan as a "stableman." On . cross-examination this witness testified that Grog-aft became, a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on June a. 1300, and that Eastman and Ludlri signed the application for membership, and, by so doing, recommended Grogan. The prosecution hopes to conclude Its case to-morrow. TO GET EVil WITH PRESIDENT. Kansas Ojfers May Attach Car ifjHi8 Train. REPUBLIC SPKtAL. Tceka..KsvAprll 30.
