meeting of the Executive Board of the
Commission for next Tuesday at 9:30 a. m.

"We expect at this meeting," said Mr.

Louis in one of the largo office buildings.
Before adjourning wo will have decided up
on all tho buildings which the commission
will erect on the World's Fair Grounds.
Governor Dockery will probably beipresent

"It is likely that we will engage the archi

and complete the salaried organization of
the commission before leaving the city. Wo
are anxious to get to work at once and as
soon as spece has been allotted us, will
commence active operations.'. As yet It is

DEFENSE OF CZOLGOSZ,
DOCTOR. M'DONALD WILL MAKE STILL FURTHER EXAMINATION.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept.- 21. Leon F. Czol
gon, whose trial for the assassination of
President McKlnley will begin next Mon
day, was examined as to his sanity or ln
ranity for one hour this afternoon by Doc
tor Carlos F. McDonald of New York, ths
eminent alienist who was for years the
chairman of the State Board of Lunacy
Commissioners. The prisoner's counsel,
former Justices Lorain L. Lewis and. Rob
ert C. Titus, were present at different times
duilng the examination. At Its close Doc
tor McDonald declined to discuss the case
and the attorneys would not express their
opinion as to the assassin's mental condi
tion, although ths Inference drawn from
their answer was that they believed Czol
ots to b "sane.
Mr. McDonald was brought to Buffalo
through tho efforts of .President Adelbert
Moot and other members of the Erie Coun
- tr Bar Association for the purpose of pass
ing upon the murderer's sanity, as tha.
association' has promised to assist Judges
Lewis and. Titus, who were suggested as
counsel for tha defense by the' trustees of

o'clock CSolgosx was brought lnt the of

Cusack of tha Police Department He had
bean taken through tha tunnel under Dela
ware avenue. The prisoner was left alone
with Judges Lewis and Titus.
At : o'olock Doctor' McDonald appeared
in the District Attorney's office and went
- at once into the private office with Mr.
Penney. Ten minutes later the two lawyers
and toe District Attorney came out, leav-
ing Doctor McDonald alone with the pris
oner. The prisoner sat at the end or the
, District Attorney's desk and' Doctor McDon
ald sat in a chair directly In front of him,
stooping down arid peering, into Czolgosz's
face. They remained alone' for exactly, half
an hour, when the prisoner's attorneys
again entered the room. Five minutes later
they came out, and Judge Lewis left to
catch the train for his summer home at
Lewiston. When questioned as to whether
or not the prisoner would talk to his coun
sel, as he had refused when Judge Lewis,
visited him on Thursday before the arraign-.'
ment, to say a word, the venerable Judge,
Talks More 'Freely.
"He Is talking more freely, but he is not
a voluble chap. He said nothing upon
which we might work in basing a defense."

not keep his head bent forward and his
eyes looking only at thVfloor as he passed'
to and from the examination. He walked
more sprightly and did not have to be
dragged along by the officers as heretofore.
When he was being led back to, the jail he
chittrd quite freely with one of his guards.
His general appearance was that of an or
dinary young man of the so-called middle
classes. He does not appear' to be of the
familiar type of anarchists', nor Is he good

In answer to questions. Judge Titus eald:
"Tile prisoner, talked, but not freely. He
talked considerably " to District "Attorney
Penney and Doctor McDonald, but was not
very communicative with Judge Lewis and
myself. I would not care to say whether
or not he said anything which would serve
to help us in forming a. basis of defense."
"'Will Doctor McDonald' be a. witness for
the defense upon the trial?" asked the As
sociated Press representative.
"Well, we are not' calling any defense

remained with him for some time.
The reason that Justice TitUs was sub
jected to such great importunity in tho
matter was that it was definitely known
that Justice Lewis's acceptance was condi
tional upon that of Justice Titus.
It has been evident from recent circum
stances that only one line of defense is
seriously considered, and that the routine

than a perfunctory defense, according to
the opinion of members of the medical pro

After the selection of a Jury a speedy ter

Justices Loran L. Lewis and Robert C.
Titus, In o'fflces in the Erie County Bank
building, at which Adelbert Moot, presi
dent' of the Erie County Bar Association,
was nlso present, the formal announcement
was made that, notwithstanding their
repugnanoe to the task, the Justices hud
decided to consent to act as counsel for
the defense in the Impending trial of Leon
F. Czolgosz, the assassin of President Mc
Klnley. The Justices. held a conference with Dis
trict Attorney Penney, at the City Hall, on
plans for the trial.
Subpoenas have been issued by District
Attorney Penney calling for the presence
of the various witnesses in court on Mon
day. The notice of trial, which was. served
three days ago. sets forth that the case
would be called in Part III of the Supreme
Court, over which Justice Trueman C.
White will preside. Unless the District At
torney or Attorney General Davles shouiu
decide upon a change, or the Justices should
decide that it would HUlt their purposes bet
ter to have another of their number act.
Justice White will preside at the trial.
There was nothing to-day to .show that
the suggestion made relative to the selec
tion of the' senior Justice of the Eighth
Judicial District, Justice Henry C. Chllds.
would be acted tipon. Intimate friends of
Justice Titus palled upon him immediately

Lewis subsequently to his arrival in this
city yesterday and strenuously objected to

o'clock in the Purina Mills; corner'bf
'Eighth and Gratiot streets, owned and
operated by the Robinson Danforth. Milling

attached to the mills, and damaged other--buildings
to the extent of 115,000. The total
damage to the buildings and- contents 3
Placed at 60,000. ,,1
The blaze was discovered by Night
Watchman V.'illiam Kanzow, and when first
seen was burning through the roof of the
cupola at the top,of the elevator. An alarm,
wax sounded and two fire companies had
hardly .reached the scene when a general
alarm was sounded. In spite of prompt i
and heroic work on the part of the firemen.
the blaze rapidly spread Until the whole
south wall of the elevator building was. la -flame.
The elevator was constructed oftxt"
planks-, laid fiat 'and sheathed on the out'f
side with corrugated Iron.' The character .
of 'the building made' it extremely difficult '
for- the' firemen to keep the blaze In sub- '
jection and not until great, squares of tha
corrugated iron had been ripped away' did
the streams of water succeed In extinguish
ing the lire: that was burning- between nths) '
After three hours of hard work the tira
Department had the flames under control,
though not b'efcre the' interior framework- "
and walls (if the elevator had been burned-'
away and the whole building so badly dam- -aged
that it will have to be' rebuilt Tha -.
damage to the building -used as a mill was"'
caused principally by water, and wllixSbt

There were stored. In. the elevator: at jtho
time. of. the fire 'nearly '40.000: bushel' of
wheat and corn, valued at 123,000. andTtUs
will be almost a total loss. In addition feed
.stock valued at $10,000 whs -destroyed. The -.total
damage, will approximate MOW, 'and .
Is fully' covered by insurance.
The work of rebuilding; the elevator .will
begin as soon as the Insurance companies
adjust the losses: . .
Robinson Danforth, president of the Rob
inson Danforth Milling Company, said last
night that his investigation had failed to
positively' account for the fire, but he gave
it as his opinion that It was due either to.an
overheated bearing in' the conveying; ma
chinery or to. a spark from the smokestack
of a neighboring, manufacturing plant.
