several weeks.
It wim un interesting gathering snd
one of preat Importance. At It the
status of trachoma among the Ameri
can Indian especially of the southwest
was carefully gone over and statistics
looked into. Dr. Murphy with Mr.
Door, Mr. Pollock and Superintendent
Crandall met the representative of
the New Mexican and stated that a
conservative average of the number
of trachoma cases is probably thirty-,
three per cent but that there are pu
eblos where there Is practically no
trachoma. These are Zunl, Islcta,
San Felipe and in Arizona there is
no trachoma among the I'i.nai, Al'-j
aches and Papagos Indians.
Not Slarlol Ity Dust. j
Dr. Murphy said that trachoma Is
due to on Infection but the genu Is
"ultra microscopic.'1
He said that he did not think that
trachoma is necessarily more preva
lent In dusty countries than In others
for in certain places of Arizona where
the dust Is thick enough to cut It with
a knlfo there Is no trachoma among
the Indians.
Dr. Murphy stated that in the ptoi
year at the I'nited States Indian In
dustrial School here that of H3 per
cent of cases of trachoma observed,
12 or 1.1 per cent had gone away prac
tically well and 20 percent now un
der treatment show the most encour
aging prognosis. This is just what
the fighters of trachoma among the
j Indian desire: to control and cure the
disease nmong the young Indians, for
1 II is moro or less a hopeless task to
.jrrapplc with it when It has worked
" : . .. ., .1.1..
Its ravages tor years on ine eyeuns
of the older people.
Mr. Crandall stated that the "Stale
of New Mexico" ought certainly to
have some regulation for the exami
nation of all children in schools for
the purpose of detecting trachoma In
the early stages as other diseases. Dr.
Murphy took the same view and
pointed nut the attention that is publ
to scarlet fever, smallpox and measles.

of Cousin Attarked,

Chesterfield Court House. Vu . Aug.
31. Henry ("lay Itvnitie, Jr. indicted
for the murder of his wife, sobbed
like a child today w hen his gray-haired
father, in a low, trembling voice,
told of the domestic tell, ity of his son
and the slain womci. Louise uwen
Heat tie. It was the first time that tho
stoical calm of the prisoner's counten
ance had given way during the trial.
The testimony of the father on be
half of his son came as the dramatic
close of a long day's battle by the de
fense against the evidence heaped
up by the prosecution. Tomorrow the
accused himself will no on the stand
and the defense will rest Its case.
Pattering constantly against the
testimony of Paul Prattle, cousin of
the prisoner, as to (he purchase of
the gun, his delivery of It to Henry
and his subsequent conversations with
the licensed, the del-mi-e Introduced
several witnesses to cast doubt upon
the veracity of Paul

produced PnUd l. I Seattle. Pauls'
grandtath, r. and the uncle of Henry,
who testified that Pauls character
was not good. It was another intense
period in the trial, for, with apparent
regret the nued nu n told of his
grandson's shortcomings.
The most surprising refutation of
the day against Faul'.- testimony came
when Kmest H. Xcblltt, said that on
Sunday. July lli. he s.iw Paul Dedttlo
on the bridge where he worked, hand
ling a single barreled shotgun. Paul
had maintained ever since the coron
er's inquest that he disposed of the
gun the same duy ho bought It, Sat
urday, July 15, by giving it to Henry.
Subsequently the defense brnnght
many witnesses t . toll of Mr. Xeblltt's
good character Mid brought others to
attack Paul's '.ernoltv
E. H. Lewis, un employe of ill
lieattle store in South Richmond,
declared that people spoke of Paul
lleattie as "the biggest liar In town."
Henry Clay lleattie, Sr., father of

hour just before court adjourned. As
he stepped to the witness sland the
prisoner's face flushed. The white

bench to listen tn him.

(old how his life had been saddened
by the death ol some of his children,
how 11,-nry in his infancy had been
neglected because tw ins cume into (he
family during his boyhood and de
scribed how on this account, and th
death of his own wile, he had frrowr.
closely udached to his son. lie de
scribed the strong love thnt hail ex
isted between Henry and the il!-ftpi!
wife, lestlflng lhat he himself grew'
lo love his daughter-in-law as one of
hi own children.
"When her baby was horn,1' said
lleattie, speaking of the dead woman,
"it was like starling lite over for mo
to see the grandchild. It drew us all
together very milch."
The rather spoke highly of his son's
character and controverted the testi
mony ol many witnesses tor the pros
ecution thnt Henry showed no signs of
arlef after his wiles' murder. II de
clared Henry had sobbed and moaned
almost all tilghl alter the tragedy.
When lleattie had finished and was
ready for cross-examination by the
prosecution, Mr. Wcndetiburg waived
Ihe opportunity. It was the first time
during the trial that this had oc
curred. After a few- minutes testimony by
Mary Jackson, a colored woman, to
the effect that she saw a bearded
man In the vicinity of the murder
on the Sunday before It happened,
which on "ross examination she was
iinab.. to maintain, especially as she
declared she could not fix the exact
date, court adjourned until tomorrow.

.Mexico City, Aug. :il. At the end
of an Impressive day in the first eon-
vcnlloii of the new progressive party
of Mexico In which Francisco I M.i.
Hero gave ills views ol Cue piuii'oroi
and how the country should be gov
erned In Ills speech accepilng the nom
ination for the presidency, the ses
sion came lo a close In wild disor
der. Threats to clear (lie galleries (o
ii ik bt stalled u tumult greater llia'v
thai whli h charai (ei Tcd last niglu's
session. Tills threat was supple
mented by aunt her (o adjourn and
close the doors tomorrow to the pub
lic. Neither was carried out, and the
row subsided only when the turbulent
element bad worn Itself out.
Following discussion of (he four
candidates for the vice presidency the
convention adjourned, leaving th
vote for tomorrow.
Tho (rouble was precipitated tonight
in exactly (he same manner as thai
of last night. A delegate speaking
against the catnliiluey of Jose Pino Sn
ares, produced a (elegrain favoring
the candidacy ol the Yucatan mini
and signed by Hustavo Madera, mem
ber of the central conunlllee, and s-
worded as to appear to Implicate fiat
body in partisan acllon. Madero,
Ironi tho slage denouiieeil it as u
forgery. Delegates In all parts of Inn
house for and against lino Sua rex,
(honied tlnir approVHl or disupprovi'.l,
and Ihe mw was taken up by a groat
of students In the guhry.
Chairman Sunches Axcona hid little
difficulty In calling the delegales to
order, but iho irrepressible young
sters were deaf to his appeals. When
he threatened to clear the gallelies
or to close the house to tho public
the Jeering of the students broke out
afresh and lot- a time It tippeari-d
probable lhat (he services of the po
lice wou'd be required. When he
could make himself heard Hunches
Axcona, who was bending over the
footlights, sppealiiig to the dclegiitcs
iinil spectators, In the name of paliio' -Ism,
deci ncy and cuiutro tint to
blillg disgrace upon the party nt ll
flrs( convention, declared thai In hU
opinion the action of (he group lit the
gallery hiul ben Instigated either ''
(ientlllcoH or llcyelstas In an effort
to disrupt the convention.
Itailli'ull jiii will not characterize the
administration of Madero. When he
appeared before the convention totlnv
to pledge himself to Ihe support of
the adopted platform, he assured (he
di legates that (hey need not expect
him to carry out the reforms pro
posed In any given (lino or by any
raillci means.
The morning session was Intorrn pl
ed In any given time or by any
support of Alfredo l!obe Domliiguert
for hce president, by (he annoiinf. -mi
nt that Madero was coming. When
he walked down the nlsle toward tha
stage, his slight form almost hidden
by (lie coininlllee lha( had been sent
lo greet him, the house from parquet
to gallery shook wilh applause,
It was some time before Chairman
Saniiu" Aseoiui , oiild restore order.
The audience listened Impatiently
while a formal speech by mm of the
dclegat.s was read and then broke
Into applause once more when their
loin advanced to the front of th"
Atllred III frock coat, Madero pre
sented a rtrange eoulrast (o (he khaki
colored liinire which many of Iho
d, legal. s Ironi northern Mexico had
seen iii .he campaign about JuarcK.

iMihep who had chased him for hun
dred... of miles to Induce him lo stop

one or th;. upper boxes were a num
