Library Association mul Labor liurcati I'oiueiiiplatc Movtuir. The board of lnaiiagcis r Hit- Workmg mau's Library Association and Labor liur au was held last evening at, their rooms, No. 310 Kighth street northwest, to coiiMder the ad inability of moving Into more com modious irjarters- For 111010 thun a year the assoerilbn ha, been in its present quarters, lut owi ig to steady incrcne in its membership 1 ml the greater necessity Tor more ncconi'iio (latlon for Its patrons for Mjme time :hc iinsiiibcrs have been desirous of taking ad vantage of the first opportunity otfep-d 10 move. The long-looked for opportunity was pre sented a few duyn ago through the gener osity of Mr. W. C Duller, the owner of the building No- 009 C street northwest. The building is five stories high, the sec ond and third floors being used as halls. Mr. liutler has kindly offeied the library asMK'ia'wm the use of the third .story iree of rent for one year, and will also do all in hi- power 111 other ways to forward the inteiest of the association. Theofi'er wascoiisiderel with proper ap preciation, ami a vote of thanks tend . -red Mr Halter for his kindness ami coum ler i tion, and a committee appointed to call on hi 111 to inform lii.n ir tne ac.ion taken and alo-to make final arrangements for the acceptance of his ofler. While the hall offered by Mr. Butler is, perhaps, as large as the one now oc cupied by the association, the general opinion of the members that theie would be very little advantage in moving, unless the hall on the second floor, could also be secured. The committee, which will wait on Mr. Ihitler, will consequently negotiate Tor a K-asc of both hulls, and if satisfactory terms can be made the bargain will be closed at once, and the removal to the new quarters made as soon as practicable. The association rents its hall to several of the local organizations and so, practical ly occupies Us present quarters free of rent. These organizations are all con tributing members of the Library Associa tion, and there is no fear but that they would continue their oteiiaucy in the new quarters. In the event, however, of one or more or the present tenants of the association refusing to move, it is known that there are others only too anxious, tn this way. to contribute to the support of the library and Labor Bureau. In case the committee in charge of the matter make satisfactory arrangements, the new quarters will be opened with a "silver ottering" entertain inent, given under the auspices of the lady friends of the asso ciation. The committee delegated to wait on Mr. Butler is as follows Messrs. James Mclveii. C. A. Maidens, "William Reed, and Thomas Shehan. FOUND DEAD ON RIVER BANK.

WAS A MOST ASTONISHING TEST After no Uad Answered 2Inny Ques tions Showing His Innocence, u Hatpin "Whs Thrust Through Ills Cheek to Show That lie Was Not Sha mining. Galveston, Tex , Jan. 2. "William Ham son, who was arrested on suspicion of having murdered Samuel Martin, a lulior leader, whose body Y,'as found m the bay with 100 pounds of iron Lied about the neck, was hypnotized and questioned in detail about the crime. While in the lethargic slate he confessed that Martin had reason to be jealous of him; that Mrs. Martin intended to get a divorce and become Mrs. Hanson, but "he denied all knowledge pf how the murder was committed, and re peated the htory he told the police when arrested. l'riif. LosUa Did the Work. Hanson was hypnotized by Prof Laska, a peripatetic lecturer, who came to Gal veston a few days ago to give exhibitions of his proficiency in hypnotism. Laska was sent for by the chief of police this morning. He had never seen Hanson He said he would be glad to try Ills hand on the suspected man. Then Hanson was asked if her would agree to the arrange ment. He expressed willingness to lie put to any test. The professor and the prisoner were thU introduced. Laska said he would like to see what sort of a subject Hanson was. He began work on him, and In a few min utes Hanson seemed to be wholly under the professor's control. To prove the sus pected man was not shamming, a woman's hatpin was jnblied into Hanson's cheek. The subject did not flinch, and when the hatpin Aas pulled out of the flesh, no blood flowed from the wound. Then the man's arm was put In a cataleptic state, and the mot powerful detective out lie foice was asked to bend it. He did not succeed. Then Laska awakened Hanson, told him lie was a fine subject, and, after consulting Chief Jones and learning that the iwlice ivnntcd the test madeatnoonlii the presence of more witnesses, the profes r said "Mr. Hanson, I'm going away; you will bo asleep wlienl return at 12 o'clock." Got Very Drowsy. The chief of police and half a dozen detectives and reporters remained in the room with the prisoner after the hypnotist departed. Shortly before noon Hanson seemed to become drowsy, lie lay down, and apparently was In a deep slumber in a few moments. Laska returning, the detectives were told to awaken the pris oner. They tried to do so by sliakitig and slapping him and by shouting In his ears, but without avail. The hypnotist rubbed the prisoner's face many times, instructed him to sleep soundly, and then said: "When you open your eyes yan will see Sam the murdered man stand ing before you. Open your eyes." Hanson's eyes opened. Chief of Polico Jones was standing directly In front of the subject. "Ho you remember the quarrel we had, William?" the chief asked. "We had no quarrel, Sam," Hanson ro plled. "Yes, we did." "No, Sam; we never had bubonequarrel, and thatdld notamount toanythmg." "Didn't I tell you that if I caught you around my house I would kill you?" "No, Sam; you never told me anything of the kind." "Did we not have a quarrel?" "Yes; but you said you did not mean me when you said you would kill him." Who "him" is could not be ascertained. Hanson Was Unconcerned. Then the professor showed how he could make the subject believe the chief of po lice was Mrs. Martin. The chief, posing as Mrs. Martin, put a ncw-AGtof questions to the recumbent man. Hanson addressed the chief familiarly as "Clura,'' and when asked U tell what he knew about the mur der he repeated the story he had told the police when arrested. For nearly an hour the prisoner was sub jected to every bort of question the spec tators suggested. To the question as to whether he thought Martin was murdered he replied affirmatively, saying he believed the wound i n tli e head wasmadewithannx. When released from the hypnotic state, Hanson did not show any undue desire to learn what lie had said. The police said they were fully satisfied with the test made, but later in the afternoon Hanson was again hypnotized in order that some further questions might be propounded to him. A spectator asked the privilege of interrogating the suspected man. Hanson was told the spectator was Mrs. Martin. Again he addressed the supposed Mrs. Mar tin familiarly. "William," said tho questioner. "I've turned state's evidence aud confessed how we murdered Sam." "If you say I murdered Sam you lie,' said Hanson. Stopped the Seance. At this Juncture Chief of Police Jones stopped the seance. He said he did not consider it fair to the prisoner to subject htm to any further interrogation, and the professor awakened the subject. Hanson was told that among the many questious put to hirn during the long test at noon were some about his relations with Mrs Martin. He burst into tears and cried: "Oh, what have I done? What have I done?" He was informed what he had said. The police say he lias acknowledged the truth of the agreement existing between him and Mrs. Martin for their marriage as soon as she got a divorce, but they de clare they ate perfectly satisfied he had nothing to do with the murder, and that he will be released if a few facts that bear against him are satisfactorily accounted for.
