THIS WAS BY CONSENT OF JUDGE MORRIS McCue Declares He Does Not Expect to be Hung and Has No Intention of Suicide. An Entirely New Theory Set Up in Regard to the Mu-der. ? (Speclal to Tho Tlmes-Dlsnatch.) CHAKLOTTESVl'LLK. VA., November 7.?Public Interest that for the past threo wcelts hns followed cagerly every de tti.il of the trlnl and subsequent convlc tlon of cx-Mayor McCue, charged wlth the murder of hls wlfo, now centers ln the effort of tho defense to have tho verdlct sot asldo and a now hearlng of the caso ordered. At noon on Wednesday tho motlons made lmmediately upon the close ot the flnal session of tho court, wlll bo argued beforo Judgo Morris. Of the varlous grounds lald down at that tlmo, tho ma? jority, as hltherto polnted out, arc of u strlctly technlcnl character. The plea that the court crred ln lts refusal to lng certaln others offcred by tho defense ls not serlously rogard cd. It Is felt on every slde that lt. thls respect tho defense received every consldoratlon at the hands of the court, and that, lf there was any dlfference at all,'tho Instructlons were rather favorable to McCuo than otherwlse. In fact. on Tuesday nlght, November lst, lmmediate? ly after tho Instructlons were granted thls wrlter had occaslon to consult the gentlemen of the defense enncerning ono oi two matters In connection wlth tho case. At that tlme they were ln the very best of humor and expressed themselves ns belng abundantly pleased and satis flod wlth what they had got in tho way of instructlons. It Is recalled as an Interesting point that only two of tho Instructlons thoy offered were rejected by Jtdgo Morris. Several others wero modl fled ln varylng degrccs. Reading of Ncwspapers. The two chlef grounds upon whlch the motlon for a new trial wlll be mndo aro the personal statement begun by Captaln Woods In opon court and the fact that some of the Jurymen read newspapers durlng- tho trlal. Of these two the latter !? the moro important and the coming proceedlngs wlll In all probabillty hlnge upon thls point. The conduct of the Jury from bcgnnlng to-end, wlll, In fact, bq scrupulously invesUgated by the defense. Any other alleged irrcg-ularitlos wlll at once bo made tho basls for a flght. On Saturday nothlng of thls sort, outslde of tho questlon of newspaper readlng was In the hands of the lawyers. Mr. Cole rnan lndlcated, however, that lf anythlng clso should come to llght, ho and hls as soclates would reserve the rlght to ln cludo lt In the blll of objectlons. Tho questlon tliat has arlsen In con. ncctlon wlth tho rendlng of newspapers recalls tho manner In whlch lt happened to bo brought to the attentlon of the court ln tho flrst Instance. In tho early stages of the trlal, Mr. T. F. Parsons, a Petersburg Juror, and one of the best of tho twelve, arose at the end of a ses? sion and formally requr-stcd tho court to Indlcate to hlm what hc should not do wlth reference to the readlng of tho newspapers, Ile said he had been ln tho hablt of scclng them regulnrly and thnt suddenly to cut off hls communl? catlon with tho world at large wpuld bo to hlm a great deprlvntlon. It wns then that Judge Morris, In the presence of the attorney* for both sld"s nnd without ob Jectlon from either, lald down the rulo thnt the jurymen could rend tho newspa. pors as much as they pleased, provlded that ln nll cases they nvolded anythlng bearlng upon tho trlal in whlch they woro then sltting.

NEW YORK. Nov. 7.?After flve or six hours spent in the lobbles of a dozen hotels to-nlght, I am convlnced that there has not been an election ln thls country in-years in whlch the result was Involved ln such great cfaubU A hundred thousand dollars was wagered on Roosevelt- ln "Wall Street thls afternoon at oddB of 6 to 1. Many bets were made at 2 to 1 on Roosevelt that ho would carry New York Stato. Tho same odds prcvalled on Her rlck's carrylng the State. Desplte the tremendous odds agalnst Parker, hls defeat ls not a foregone con cluslon. The attitude of a large pro portlon of the voters ln nll the doubtful States is involved In impenetrable mys tery. This makes a land-slldo to Parker a possihlllty. Old-tlmers tell me that on the nlght before the election of 1892, tho odds were about as heavy agalnst Cleve lnnd as they are agalnst Parker to-nlght, Cleveland swept tho country by an ovcr whelmlng majority. If summer up at tho last moment ns it were the outloolc may be deserlbed as foggy for Democrats and hazy for Republicans. Roosevelt Is Justlfled ln expectlng and Parker In hop Ing to wln. I should not bo surprised if Judgo Parker Is elected. The country has gone wlth New York ln every na? tional election for nearly forty years. The samo Is true of Indiana. From tho most rellable lnformation received to-day and to-nlght, I am of tho oplnlon that Parker wlll carry both States. The other so-call ed "doubtful" States aro about as doubt? ful as ever. though tho Democratlc,out look In Connectleut, New Jersey and west Virginia have materinlly Improvrd ln the past three days. I bellevo thnt if Parker loses those States lt wlll bo found ho was defentrd by a majority enuallng tholr total strength in the electoral collego. ln othor words lt looks now ns though tho three llttle tSates of Conncctlcut, New Jersey and West Vlrglnia or any ono of them might easlly declde the olectlon. Of courso thls vlty precluded the probab illty of a landsllde, whlch the politlclan can no moro foretpll than tho sclentlst can foretcjl an earthquako. Both Sides Confident. The national mnnngers of the two po? litlcnl campnlgns profess as sreat confl? denco on tho evo of election as they .dld two months ago. Tho Doniocratic National Commlttee clalms that Judge Parkor wlll receive l!TO electoral votes, thlrtyono tnoro than a majority. Tho Republlcan Commlttco wlll not nfl mlt that the Presldent wlll receive less than 300 electoral votes.

GO TO CONGRESS OR COURTS By Walter Edward Harris. (Speclal From a Staff Corrcspondent.) NEW YORK, November 7.?Thero is scarcely a doubt that df President Roose? velt ls defeated to-morrow he wlll con tcst the eiection. Thero Is positlvo ground for tho ussertion that should Judgo Park? er be eleeted on the face of the returns dt is tho rfhtbntlon of Mr. Roosevelt to carry tho caso to Congress, and, prob? ably the courts, oventually, and thus creaito somothlng llko a parauel of tho Tilden-Hayes sdtuatlon. lt lias been learned that Mr. Roose? velt has said that lf the, DemocrtuUc na? tlonal tlcket should recelvo a prima facle majority in tho electoral college, he will dlsputo the result by ralsing tho questlon of the constlun-ionallty of the olection as held dn Southern States. lt wlll bo contended that ln thoso States whlch have adopted now Constltutions in recent years, tho eiection "was not iieJd ln accordanco wlth tho Pederal Consti? tutlon, owing to tho oxclusion of practi? cally all negroos from tho olectorato. On thla ground tho oloctlon held ln every Stato of the South, save Florida, Goor gda. nnd Texas, could bo contested. Tlio Presidont liris sald prvlately that tho Supreme Court of tho Unlted States has never passed dlrectly upon the ques? tlon of tho constltutlonnlliy of tho pro vlsions of tlio Constltutions of tho Statea which hnvo sought to ellmlnuto tho ne? gro from the olectorato. There aro many Southern luwyors who take thn sumo vlew. Tho exact courso whlch tho Presidont would pursue In case of tho oloctlon of Judgo Parker can only bo speculated upon, lt ls presumed that action would be deferred, posslbly until tho Congress came to go through tho formalily of ooiintlng the returns and declarlng tlio re? sult of the oloctlon. Posslbly recourto to the courts mlght bo hnd Immedlately after the eleotlon. Tho Houso of Roprosontatlves would al? most corUUlnly de Democratlo ln caso of tho eleotlon of a Domocratlc Pro3ldont, but the new Congress would not bo seat ed untll tho 4th of March, 1905, A Repub? lican Sonato will count tho eleotlon re? turns, Thore aro only threo Democrats on the Supromo Court beneh, Thero Is no doubt thut In decldlng cases growlng out of tho suffrage clauses of tho now Constltutions of cortaln Southern States, tho court has caused many to bellove It was not dis posoi] to construe tho pederal Consti? tutlon wlth great strletness.
