ANOTHERNEWTRIAL URGED FOR PATRICK SEVEN TEXANS ARRIVE IN NEW YORK WHO WERE BROUGHT IN TO DISCREDIT THE VALET’S TESTIMONY. New York, February 19.—Seven wit nesses from Texas were present today at the beginning of the hearing of a mo tion for a new trial for Albert T. Patrick, the lawyer who was convicted of the murder of William Marsh Rice, an aged millionaire. It was mainly on the testi mony of Jones, Mr. Rice’s valet, that the conviction was secured. Patrick’s lawyers state that the witnesses whom they 'have secured in Texas will discredit Jones’ evidence. He said that Patrick used chloroform to kill Rice. The wit nesses present today were Robert Lee, T F. Jett. H. J. Moran. G. R. Bailey, Thomas McNerney, Miss Minnie Gaillard, all of Houston, Tex., and Joseph Jordan of Seabrook. Tex. Jordan was the first witness called to the stand. Before Jordan was questioned William K. Olcott, Patrick’s counsel, made a for mal motion to 'have the hearing transfer red before another Judge. Recorder Goff of the court of general sessions, before whom t'he hearing had started, denied this motion. The examination of Jordan was then begun by the attorney. In it Jordan stated that he is a boatman of Galveston county Texas, and that he talked to Charles F. Jones, Rice’s valet, at Morgan’s Point. He stated that Jones had told him he was confused by the police when he made the charges against Lawyer Patrick. Jones said to him, the affidavit read, that Patrick had noth ing to do with the death of Rice and that he hoped Patrick would come out all right. Mr. Jerome questioned the witness as to what lead him to make this affi davit and whether he had dictated it 'him self. Jordan said that he dictated “all but the fancy touches.” Robert Lee of Houston. Tex., was then put on the witness stnnd. After a few preliminary questions had been asked of him by Mr. Jerome, the examination was adjourned until tomorrow.

The Jefferson county Board of Revenue yesterday decided to make changes in two existing roads for the purpose of straightening curves. It also decided to open a new road in Precinct 9. The board met yesterday morning with a full membership present, and a lot of routine business was transacted. The roads to be changed are the Jaybord road, In Precinct 33 and the Pratt City-Jasper road, in Precinct 29. The new road is to be in the southern portion of the county. The following "viewers” were named to go over the proposed route and make the arrange ments for laying out the road: R. C. Hewes, J. M. Dupuy, R. B. Sueyer, R. H. Hagood, J. D. Lanier and P. D. Tar rant. They will make a report to the board in a week or two. The board took no action on the mat ter of the proposed addition to the court house and jail, but after the meeting ad journed several members expressed them selves as opposed to any action along those lines at this time. Job Going stated that the feeling of the board was that no addition should be made to the court house until some constitutional act was adopted by the legislature looking for more judges in Jefferson county. Should additional judges be furnished to assist in keeping the Jail free of prisoners, then the board would make the change necessary to furnish the additional quarters, but nothing would be done before that time, he said. Others members expressed the same ! opinion. It was stated that the board | did not feel that any addition was need ed to the jail. The board was said to be ' of the opinion that it would be better to j have enough Judges to keep down the ' number of prisoners to such a small total that the Jail would be capable of hold ing them easily. The board will hold no further sessions this week, but will meet again next Mon day. SANITARY REDUCTION OF CITY'S GARBAGE Proposition From Company at Jack son—Mayor Ward Received Let ter Regarding Proposed Test. About two weeks ago the Sanitary Re duction and Construction company of Jacksonville, Fla., sent a proposition to Mayor Ward, setting forth their plans for the Installation of a plant for the reduc tion of the city garbage. On receipt of the letter, Mayor Ward wrote the Sani tary Reduction and Construction com pany for further particulars. The follow ing letter was received by the Mayor yes terday in answer to his letter of Febru ary 10: “Replying to yours of the 10th inst., will say that owing to unexpected delays our plant is not yet in operation, but we will tire up on Monday. It will be some days after starting before we will be ready to receive our friends and when we are good and ready I will notify your committee. I beg that your committee will grant me further time in which to give it the Information asked for. I anticipate a visit from your committee to investigate our plant here and when they c#me I ask for a day’s notice so that we may be prepared to make satisfactory demon strations, for 1 want their investigation to be thorough. It will satisfy them that this company has solved the question and that garbage reduction can be done in an odorless, sanitary and profitable manner, and that Birmingham can easily make this department of her government more nearly self sustaining than ever before. Respectfully, A. O. WRIGHT, “General Manager.” BABY THROWN FROM CHAIR INTO GRATE Mother Had Gone on Errand and the Rocker Was Overturned During Her Absence.

This was county court day here, sev eral cases being disposed of by Probate Judge Carter. The preliminary examina tion of Frank Adams for the shooting of Ed Hall at Bean Rock, sixteen miles down the river a few days ago. was postponed on account of the fact that Hall had not sufficiently recovered to j attend the trial. Hall's right arm was | broken by one shot, another went through 'his shoulder, while the third was only a glancing shot. The combatants are tim ber men down the river and undertook to settle some matters of difference by shooting it out. Hall’s shooting was not so good as his adversary, his aim going j wild of the mark. The past five weeks stands without a j parallel for mid-winter weather in this | section.

RUSSIAN RUPTURE SEEMS COMPLETE MINISTERS ARE RESIGNING AND ALL WILL UNITE IN TRYING TO PLACE BLAME ON DURNOVO'S SHOULDERS. St. Petersburg, February 19.—The dis ruption of t’he Russian cabinet which was predicted last Friday by the Asso ciated Press is coming to pass more speedily than was expected. Though both Premier Witte and Minister of the Inte rior Durnovo remain. Minister of Com munications Nemechaieff and Comptrol ler of the Empire Flllessotoff, it is stated, will follow M. Kutler and M. Tlmiriazeff into retirement in a few days. Finance Minister Shipoff is said also to be slated for retirement, although this is not cer tain. M. Nemechaieff. who 'has Just returned [ from “swinging around the circle" in- j spectlng railroads, is said to have de- I dared that it was impossible to maintain I an efficient service while the police were ! Jailing the best and most intelligent of the railroad operators, and he quits his i post In disgust. Tlie vacancy in the cabi- i net probably will be filled temporarily until the meeting of rhe national assem bly, and in all probability by the promo tion of vice ministers. In leaving the department of commerce M. Timirlazeff has severad his connection with the bureaucracy and will come out as a full-fledged parliamentarian. He has been offered the leadership of the party of commerce and Industry, one of the most important factions of the constitu tional monarchist federation, and will be its candidate for the national assembly.
