counsel for th* defense, who was foEow

mates it assured that the case vrlH no
probably go to the Jury before this after
noon. After Mr. ConSfl finishes his ar
guraent, the Instrurtiona to the Jury wl!
have to be gone over.
The closing1 argument for the defens
was made by Mr. Howard. He b? pni
speaking at the morning session: of cour
and did not finish- until 4 o'clock In Mr
afternoons his speech occupying fou
hours. Mt. Howard; showed his com
mand of the thousand and' one detail
of the case and mode what was un
doubted ty a very effective piea lo th>
Jury In behalf of the defendant.
At the morning session Mr. Hownri
obvoieu conmaeraow uuiv w a
and unsparing denunclatJon of Mr. H
0. Ogden, manager of the News, wh(
has figured in this case as the prlnclpa
prosecuting witness, without whom* ui
Mr. Conrtff said ins his rpeech, "Reynoldj
would be walking the streets of Wheel
lug a free man and with no such serious
charge confronting him." Mr. Ho wan
spoke with intense feeling in his attacl
upon the reputation of Mr. Ogden foi
truth ana veracity, and in language tlia
was exceedingly warm consigned him t<
a region that is warmer than- this
The speaker doubted the willingness
of the jury to send a man to state's
prison for ten years before a civil suit
now instituted shail have decidec
whether or not the defendant in this
case has been guftty of using the Guarantee
company's funds for his own purposes.
The business that Reynolds started
for the Guarantee and Provident companies
is still In effect, and these companies
are getting profits from it, profit!
that are being used to pay John J. Con<
iff to help send- Reynolds to the penitentiary
as an embezzler of money h?
paid out and from which they are now
receiving benefits.
It was claimed that the Whedinj
checks introduced again3t the defendant
represent less than- the five months' salary
due him from the company, and- as
to the Washington office the evident
"hftii'B whA was to Dav the expense 01
that office.
It was iwrtstetf upon that the stati
had shown no concealment on' the par
of ReynoMs.in any of the transactions
upon which1 they would convict him
And If there was no concealment then
was no criminal Intent* and withou
criminal intent there can be no verdic
of guilty.
It is not the stale of West Vlrginit
that Is prosecuting this ease, ua1d Mr
Howard. The only evidence of,wha
the people want is through the witness
Bachmar, who tell* whut a neigbbo
said, "that Ofden was more guilty thai
Reynolds." The state of West Vlr
gJala has not asked a verdict of guilt:
Id thte case; the prosecuting attomej
just asked the Jury to do its duty. Yoi
have hf.tt.rd from the state's attorney
you have heard from the lawyer? for th
defense, now you wlH hear from H. C
Ogden and J. B. SommerviJ-fc?, throug!
their attorney and mouthpiece*. Ar
you to help this company and satisf;
their malice?
Continuing, Mr. Howard denounce
the method* that had been used by th
state's prosecuting witnesses, am
claimed that the defendant had not beei
given a fair opportunity of bringing pa
pers and books into the trial that wer
needed in his defense. The speaker als
criticised Mr. Sommerville for not hav
lzrs appeared in court as a witness whei
summoned by the sheriff.
Referring to the charges he had mad
In the course of the trial. Mr. Ho war
said': "I am responsible for everythln
that I have said in the course of thl
trial. I have made these charges befor
this Jury because I believe them to b
true. This defendant is without means
he has not paid me a cent for my ser
vices. I have defended him because
believe him to be an innocent man wh
is being persecuted."
Concluding. Mr. Howard appealed t
the Jury in language that was eloquen
and said there is a difference be twee
the honest prosecution of criminals an
<Kshonest persecution.
The closing argument was made b
Mr. John J. Coniff, of counsel for th
state, who began speaking at 4:1
It 1? proper, said Mr. Conlff. that th
Jurjr should be treated fairly by coun
sel on both sides. H<* hoped the Jur
would measure oil of counsel by th
correct standard set at the outset c

seriously entertain the belief that t

absurd claims. All these men invest

The defense, said Mr.^Coniff, goes a

Continuing, the speaker claimcd th

Co/a weekly review of trade will say tomorrow:
prospects of peace have bad a curious
Influence on business contracts, not
quite explainable on common sense
grounds. Ndbody really feared disaster,
or exhaustion of national resources and
nobody feared that anybody else was
afraid of either. Yet orders unusual In
number and slse have been placed since
Spain asked for peace. In some Industries
the gains have been large for about
two weeks, while In some textile manufactures
it has only begun to appear this
week, but It Involves a considerable Increase
In the working force. Crop reports
are on the whole more encouraging
for the government's latest report as to
corn Is much larger than the commer
cm estimates, ana its couon return
promises a heavy yield, while allowance
is made for its habitual error in its
wheat return. Money markets show no
sign of possible disturbance, securities
are stronger, and there is no harmful
speculation in stocks or products. Rarely
has the financial outlook been more
nearly unclouded.
While wheat ls 4c higher for the
week, there is less doubt than a week
ago that it will rule lo*er during the
coming year.
The general holding back of grain by
farmers and consequent heavy shrinkage
In western receipts have reduced
the visible supply below all past records,
but everybody understands that at this
date many times that quantity is almost
within a day's run of Chicago.
The price ot corn has declined a shade
fpr cash and the government report
promising almost two billion against
1,825,000,000 bushels promised by commercial
accounts, has more weight because
the official returns as to corn have
not been systematically misleading and
cverywnere uiocrcuneu.
The Iron and trteel trade fully supports
Inferences drawn from recent events.
The demand for steel is so heavy that
some of the biggest concerns have been
buying, one taking 4,000 tons, advancing
the price at Pittsburgh from 114 50 to
$15 25. which was at last refused. Bessemer
pig 1s steady and other pig there
and eastern and western markets generally,
but rails have been advanced by
eastern makers to $18 per ton. the
makers of structural beams have advanced
the price $1 per ton and makers
of merchant pipe have advanced the
price 5 per cent, while plate makers arc
crowded to the point of refusing orders,
both east and west, and bars are stronger,
with many mills engaged for weeks
ahead. Illustrating the demand are reports
of orders for 30,000 car axles at
Chicago; 20.000 tons structural work
there and big orders at Philadelphia for
cast pipe and 6,000 tons elsewhere.
Eastern works now appear to be
crowded to their utmost capacity, as the
the minor metals there is heavy buying.
Textile works have been sleeping, hut
ore awakenlngr. The demand for woolen
goods Is now much better, although not
yet extensive enough to warrant paying
the prices asked for new wool and nearly
all of the buying ha* been of old
The demand for cotton goods Is a little
better as to staples, and fairly good for
print oloths. prints and ginghams,, and
yet probably does not suffice to cover
the current output.
For the week failures have been 196 In
the United States, against 239 last year,
and 18 in Canada, against 38 last year.

weak I could scarcely do my work, and
In A"prli I broke down completely I
had Indigestion and kidney trouble.
The back of my head and neck would be
so tired, I coufld not rest The left side
of my face ached but the pains and
aches yielded under the Influence of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and
'Pteasant Pellets.' I had also a severe
pain in my left Hmb. I tried different
liniments, but* received no relief. I
could not lie still on account of the suffering
in my body. My limbs and feet
were cold* although I was in a perspira*tlon
nearly oft the time. Sometimes
1 would have to be propped up in bed
all night, and even then could sleep but
"I sent for the doctor and asked if he
could cure me. He said he had never
failed but a time or two. I took his
treatment about three weeks and was
nr? hurt worse if anything. so I
decldedi to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. I bought six bottles but
I had only to take four bowtes of the
'Golden Medical Discovery' and two
vials of the- 'Pleasant Pellets' and I
was able to do my Work again. I have
thus far had no return of the disease. I
fee) better this spring tihan I have feJt
for several seasons. 1 have no hot spells
like I had for severn* years. If I had
taken your treatment sooner, no doubt
I couSd have kept that bad spell off, but
I am truly thankful that I took your
medddne and fornrd a cure. I shall
ever praise the medicine that cured me
and will recommend it to all suffering
aa I was."
This matchless "ootden Mtedicei! Discovery"
Is absolutely free from alcohoi.
It Is totally unlike the numerous "sars>wparlWa*,"
"tonics," "compound"
"ma>t-extracts" and ?o-cft<Hed " bloodpurifiers"
Which contain so large a percentage
of alcohol that their persistent
use Is almost oertaln to awaken a morbid
craving for stimulants. The "Gold?n
Medical Discovery" is a temperance
medlcinw, pure and simple. It may be
used witn perfect conildenc* in a terntrance
famWy. Thereby all danger of
:ontract1ng the aJcohot habit is avoided.
