remarked: -I am convinced the country

"Mr. Roosevelt confessed his own
knowledge of the fraudulent character
of his contests and testified to the Jus?
tice of the committee's work when, at
Oyster Bay, on tho night the Gom
mltteo's action -was takin. he showed
to th-? representatives of the press a
section of his confidential list of dele-j

Not Seeking; Equity,
"When you go seeking equity, do

The lrtEt day of the trial of Claude

at Which time Mr.Wills closed the csso

Th members of the jury retired at
: 2:10 o'clock and were out for one

In the indlctmont. T*? oetenae moved
to have the Jury polled, and thtr. was
j done.

When the verdb't w'aS announced,
the prisoner's flame broki down and
sobbed aloud, and the prisoner for
the first time during the long trying
days of his trial broke down. Until
to-day he had neve- shown the l< ist
sign of emotion, but he. together with
all the members of hts family pres?
ent, several members of the Jury and
many women spectators, w-ept aloud.
After the verdict was nnr.o'incfd, the
defense moved to set it aside. because
contrary to the law an', evidence and

will be used In the other trials as

for a venire of seventy-five men to
bo summoned from the county of Bed?
ford for the next trial, nnd tho Com?
monwealth also moved to consolidate
the Indictments and try the other three

agreed to this only upon the oondi-|
tlon that the Commonwealth would
elect the Indictment upon which It
should try the case, thoro being live in?

consent to try the three on that In?
dictment, ani dismiss the other four

Immediately after the arrival of a

who nre said to have taken part in

made no resistance. They were pla< ed
in a railroad car which has been con?

were given a royal welcome, the croud
clapping Its hands and showing other

"There never would have boon any

f"r them sneaks of mine guards. They
have been looking for trouble and
they got It."

The miners stated that fboy had no
fight with the soldiers and would give
them no no trouble. On arrival of the
troops at Paint Creek Junction this

part of a pretty young woman. Julius
Klbel. twenty-five years old. a private
assigned for duty In the local Recru't

himself In a cell at the First Fol'co

tobacco factory,
While standing at Eighth and Broad

made a bet of one dollar with a friend
that ho could accost any woman who
might pass and carry packages to her
home. The bet was accepted.
After the Mtmhcr'n Style..
Miss lllnes was tho rtrst who appear?

?Will you permit mo to carry your

blocked her progress.
Though momentarily astonished at
being accosted by an utter stranger.
Miss Kinos consented. Klbel escorted
her through Bast Broad Street until
the First Follco Station, near Eight?

Patrolman Jennings, who wns sitting
on a bench In front of the station, ob?
served the couple approach, hut paid
little attention until Miss lllnes greeted

Jennings Immediately grabbed Klbel
and took him beforo Acting Desk Ser
