Young Applegate Remarkably Frank About Driving the Stick BARRETT THREW A BOMB IN OAMP He (Denied That the Company Ordered Him to Put the Bens on tor the Boys' Mr. Sprnance (Failed .to Call Illia Mr. Bird Found Out the Kcason Why. The cross examination of Wilson Hemsley by Mr. Bird was the first feature of tbe Cblelinsky case In the Superior Court yeate niay afternoon. He réitéra ted everything be had said in direct ex amination and did not suffer much at Mr. Uiid's bands. He said he didn't know who put on the baits when be wasn't there. Mr Bird—"While Cblelinsky was working in the store-room, between November 6 and December 2, 1892. did you not, in the presence of William Brown, say to William Applegate, 'If you don't go up there and put. on that belt I will toll Mr. Day on you'?'* "No, sir." "Did you not say to William Brown, within two months of this time, at tbe office of the Hoopes and Townsend Com psuy, that you had seen Applegate aud Brown up on the stringers putting on the main belt, aud that you never saw Cblelinsky there?' "I did not." Superintendent John Day testified that his duties called him to tbe uniting room frequently. He never saw the line belt off, He uever saw Cblelinsky. Ap plegate or Brown up on tbe stringers or putting on the line belt. It was Bar rett's business to attend to tbe belts, put them on aud fix them. Ho was also to oil the shafting. That was no part of the work of the boys. Frederick Schiller was recalled aud described tbe block beside which, it was testified, Applegat? drove a wedge into tbe machine, inches square, tight it would produce such a friction that tbe spindle could not revolve, aud the additional wedge would make It that much worse. Alfred D. Marks was also te called He said that William Brown entered the company's employ on September 30. 1892. and left on April 21, 1893. He said that, one hour after the accident ChieMusky said in his presence that Applegate placed sticks into the machine so that when it started tbe belts came off and in attempting to pnt them on his shirt caught and his arm was wound around tbe shaft He also said that Cblelinsky said: "My mother told me to be careful about maebiuery. 1 disobeyed her and now look at my arm." The boy was perfectly conscious. Dawson Hoopes, a member of tbe firm of Hoopes aud Towu»etid. of Philadel phia, and general manager of the Hoopes aud Townsend Company of this city, was called aud sworn He said he served four years apprenticeship as a machinist, and was also a draughtsman He said that a stick driven into tbe uniting machine would probably throw off tbe lower belt) aud the upper belts might follow. He never beard of oil being put on the outside of the pulleys for any practical purpose. It would tend to t hrow the belt off He was in the nut ting room two or three times a day on an average. He never saw tbe Hue or machine belt off, nor did be see anybody up on the stringers. The machines were in good order on tbe day of the accident. It was no part of Chteliusky's business to put on tbe main line belt. There was a belt fixer aud oiler named William U Barrett to do such work. He regarded Schiller as a competent man. The defendaut rested and Mr. Bird called witnesses in reply. Mr Bird-"William H. Barrett 1 He was tbe man the other people failed to bring here." Barrett, a short, intelligent looking negro, took tbe stand aud was sworn. Mr. Bird—"Were you ever instructed by anybody in that concern, upon any occasion, to put belts on when they came off?" Mr. Sprnance objected, saying that It was not in reply. The court o verrai «d the objection aud Mr. Sprnance asked tbe court to note an exception. The question was repeated to Barrett and he replied: "No, sir." Mr. Sprnance asked that lie be con fined to the time between November 8 to December 13 Mr bird confined him self to the time aud Barrett's reply was the same. He said it was two If It were driven In too of Mr. Bird—"Gross examine." Mr. Sprnance—"No cross-examina tion " Mr. Bird—"That's all. I should not think you would have. Now, if tbeie will be any questions hereafter, as to inatrnctiuns before that time, I want them to say now. I am here prepared to show that from tbe beginning no such instructions were given If they are going to argue to tbe jury—" "Mr Spruauce—"I don't think yon have any business to show what you are prepared to prove—" Mr. Bird—"Sit down, sir till I get through" The court said tbe argument would be confined to the time. William Brown, the small colored boy, took the stand, and Mr. Bird asked: "While yon worked in that nut-room were yon ever told bjFrederickSchiiler not to put tbe main hue belts on when they came off?" "No. sir." "Did you hear HowardHinton say in my office in the presence of certain persons that while Cblelinsky wotked in that nut-room he had seen both Applegate aud Brown upon the girders?" "Yes, sir," "Do you know John Finley?" "Yes, sir." "Did John Finley ever see yon up on tbe girders while Cblelinsky was there?' "Yes. sir." Clarence Huntley was recalled and said that while be worked in the nut-room np orders were ever given to him by Frederick Schiller not to put tbe belts on. Mr. Spruauce objected to tbe testimony and noted an exception. Joseph O'Connell atd Walter Apple gate gave similar testimony although Mr. Sprnance objected and asked t e court to note an exception Mr. Bird—"Walter Applegate, did yon bear Hemsley Wilson, in the presence of William Brown say to you, Tf yon don't go op tbeie and put on that belt I will tell Mr. Dey on you'?" Mr. Sprnance objected, on the ground tbit the time and place bad not been laid, He was overruled by the court, and Applegate replied: ••He did " Applegate said that Hotvard Hinton said to Mr. Bird in bla office that be bad seen both Applegate and Brown on the stringers, John Finley also saw them up there. At 5.50 o'clock court adjourned. Will the Capital Case lie Tried? This morning, the Mills jury was dis charged until Monday morning, which Is the time set for the trial of Michael Faino for the murder of Carlo Kuva. It is not believed that the capital case will be tried this term as there will not be a full bench. Judge Urnbb being critically ill with gastric fever, with no likelihood that he will be able to sit at this term. More Tt stimuli y lu Iteply, Walter Applegate, a witness In reply In .the Chielinaky case, resumed his place on the stand. Mr. Bird wanted to show by him that there was an entire absence of malice on Applegate's part In patting the stick under tChiolineky's machine, and that be had often done it before Mr. Sprnance objected to the question and Mr. Bird proc eded to argue the matter. He said : "My friend stated that he did it be came he had been discharged. He went further, and proved by one witness that, this boy said further: 'Watch me make that Dutchman mad!' 1 want to show that that very block had been under that machine hundreds of times before. Wo will offer other witnesses to prove it. Ought be not to be allowed to say to this jury that it was from no ill motive or evil animus that he placed that stick under there?" The judges consulted for some time when Mr. Spruauce said: "I would not like the court to decide against me without giving me an oppor tunity to object." Chief Justice Lore—"Go on, Mr Sprnance. " Counsel for the defense said; "My friend has asked the boy why bo did It. The boy says be did It to make it. run faster. I insist that he has no right to put this qnestiou for any other purpose. Here was a boy who had been discharged from the employ of that com pany on December 3. Having nothing to do with that machine whatever; being a mere inter rover and intermeddler, charged with no dnty in respect to it. It was no business of his whether It ran fast or slow, and here we have him driving a stick into that machine Now to allow that boy to say what be bad done prior to that time when in the employ of tbal com pany would seem to me to open the dom wide to dangerous inquiry, calculated to mislead the jnry If there was no malice In this boy a mind he has negatived it He has told us what he did it for—to make it run faster " a It «d 8 The court overruled the objection. Mr. Bird—"How did yon know it would make the machine run taster " Witness—"Because 1 bad doue it be fore." "What took yon in the nut-room that day?" "I took dinner to my brothers." "Did yon, while In that room that, day, put oil of any description on any of the pulleys in that room?" "No, sir; I didn't do it." "Did you, while in that room that day, at any time say,'Wail until you fee me get tbe Dutchman mad ?" "No, sir " In answer to Mr. Sprnance'« inquiries the boy said the stick was fifteen inches long, two wide and one and a-half inches thick. He found it right underneath tbe machine aud drove it In with a hatchet. MrJ Sprnance—"What business had you to drive that stick in that machine?" "I bad no business," said the boy, "but 1 did It." This frankness created laughter. "Wilson made tbe stick on tbe same day that I was fired," continued tbe boy with charming frankness, and a minute later be left the stand. His brother, Robert Applegate, said be saw tbe block that Walter drove Into tbe nutting machine He had seen similar blocks under other machines. It was not part of a barrel stave. Witness did not hear Walter say, "Watt aud see me get the Dutchman man." Walter did not throw the belt off. James T. Alexander testified that he and Osorge Burton worked in the store room. In his opinion, when Barton said that ho went, to the nuttlng-room twenty five times a day he was telling what was not true Maxwell Cblelinsky swore that Howard Hinton said in Mr. Bitd's office that he had seen Applegate aud Brown up in tbe girders. Mr. Bird—"We rest here." Mr. Sprnance called Frederick Schiller in rebuttal. Mr. Bird objected to bis testimony. Mr Spruauce wanted to show that it would be possible for a boy to throw off the main-line belt when the engine was not running. He wanted to show that there was no such physical impossibility. Schiller testified that the belt could be thrown off when not 1» motion aud there was very little difference In throwing it off then aud when it was in motion Mr. Sprnance—"No, I ask yon whether or not Walter Applegate could have thrown that belt off while the engine was not in motion in the manner it has been testified that he did do it." "Yes, without trouble, no matter bow tight It was." Dawson Hocpes corroborated this state meut. It. was more difficult, however, to throw off a standing than a moving bell. Both sides closed at 13 05, and Mr. Sauburn read bis prayers aud law upon tbe propositions, and reviewed the tes timony, and was followed by Mr. Curtis, Mr Spruattce's colleague. Messrs . Bird and Sprnance expect to go to the jnry to morrow. Fish Factory Argument Postponed. Argument for an Injunction by the United States against tbe fish factories of Luce Brothers and S. S. Brown & Co., at Lewes, in the United States Court, this morning, was postponed until next Tuesday, on a motion of tbe defendaut counsel, through tbe district attorney.

K L Martin, of Setford. Committees were then appointed by the bishop. Tbe meeting then adjourned to the church where holy communion was held when the bishop delivered his trl-enuial charge to the diocese. Tbe charge was an all sides spoken of as being a strong aud able one, dealing with the finances la. an able manner, citing the contributions to tbe church being an obligation which It Is a duty to pay as much as the taxes imposed by the elate, and urging a personal, consolen lions supervision of tbe same. The convention then adjourned until 3 p. m. After some general routine work of the committees had been reported a motion was made to rednee to 15 cent» per each communicant, tbe rite formerly having been 20 for tbe diocese This mo tion was carried after considerable debate, lllnliop Adder**.

It embraced a general report of tbe woik during the year aud canta'med many recommendations pointing to tbe enlargement and promotion of the woik being done, same us follows: "In greeting you once more as I do most affectionately I would impress upon tbe minds of all who are assembled here the true iufinenc * of a Diocese Conven tion—it Is really an instrumentality fur carrying ou tbe Divine Master's work. Our convention, therefore, becomes the lawfully constituted council of (bis Divine organization meeting here to devise means by which the will of our King may be better fulfilled, The Cliftnge« Wrought 11/ Denth.

Gibson, of Dover, resigned, aud who is now ill at bis home, aud for whom a resolution of sympathy has boon made by the convention. The changes among the clergy were then set forth and the names of new members of the diocese, by transfer and ordination, mintlontd. Among tbe ministers newly ordained is A U. Cum mins, Jr , of Smyrna. A list of the confirmations during tbe year shows that there have been 188 con firmations in this dlccese, one adult and twelve children baptized, eight marriages aud ten funerals. ''The Spirit of Improvement continues to be shown in the building np of our church." Improvement in the« churches of the diocese were then set forth. "It has been with much satisfaction that the growth the Brotherhood of St Andrew has been watched. Several new chapters have been formed and recently a local assembly has been estab lished, whose action aud influence will be most beneficent throughout the diocese '' It was suggested that much benefit would be derived by the association, were an organization to be established in each parish. "Further, It is not known that any marked incidents have occurred, bnt there are to be found everywhere '.the evidence of the church's growth 1.1 every element of strength. Among the latest acquisitions to nur ecclesiastical property Is the parish building f-.r Holy Trinity ard Old Swedes Church, Wil mington." The needs of many districts for new and additional building« were then cited, several located in Wilmington and necessitated by tbe rapid growth and development-of tbe city. Home Suggested for Aged Clergymen, "We have a fund for the aged and de bilitated clergymen's support, bnt not for their hems. The site Is ready at baud next to tbe bishop's residence and In every way most suitable, and If God were to touch the hearts of some of his favored children to erect the honse, with a suitable endowment, tbe happy idea would at once be realized and much com fort, assured the earnest workers who have devoted their life to the cauae of Christ " Regarding a Minister's Vote.

V., on "The Clergyman's Retiring Fund Society," the object of which Is to create a pension fund for the clergy of the church, who may have attained the age of 60 years. He cited the fact that, the salaries paid are not sufficient to permit of laying up a sum fur maintenance in old age, and declared that it was plainly the duty of the church to provide for them, when age warrants their retirement from active service Business of a general nature being the order, Hon. K I. Martin moved that the Invitation to bold the next annual dio cese at Lewes be accepted. This motion was declared carried by the bishop and so ordered. It was then moved by Hon. E. L.
