Actual Taking of Testimony Will
Begin Tuesday—Four of the
Jurors Cannot Read
or Write
LBy Associated Press.]
NASHVILLE, Term., Feb. 13.—With
out further change the jury was
sworn this morning in the case against
Colonel Duncan B. Cooper, Robin J.
Cooper and John D. Sharpe, charged
with the slaying of former Senator E.
W. Caimack.
The state asked for several days in
which to gather its witnesses. The
court suggested that the taking of
testimony begin Tuesday morning, and
this was agreed to.
Every one connected with the case
drew a long breath of relief today
when the state announced that it was
satisfied with the jury selected.
For twenty-five days the court, at
torneys and officers had been trying to
get competent jurors. It was neces
sary to draw five venires of 100 each
and one of fifty-nine before the jury
was secured. As it is, four of the jury
can neither read nor write, and two of
these speak English only indifferently.
Orfe man of the twelve swore he had
not read a newspaper since before the
killing, and some had not read one for
ten years.
Mrs. Eastman, who was talking to
Senator Carmack when he was killed,
probably will be the first witness
Charles McKenna of 137 East Avenue
Forty-nine was held up and robbed at
1 o'clock this morning at Avenue Fifty
ard Pasadena avenue by two masked
men, of $4.50 and a gold watch.
The robbery was committed at the
point of a revolver which one of the
men aimed at McKenna, and ordered
him to throw up his hands. The sec
ond man, who also was armed, searched
him and took his property.
The robbery was reported to the po
lice within a few minutes after it oc
curred, and while detectives were sent
to the spot at once no trace of the rob
bers was had.
Methodists Elect Editor
NEW YORK, Feb. 13.—Dr. Charles

vocate, a Methodist weekly, to succeed
the late Dr. D. D. Thomson.
ST. PETERSBURG, Saturday, Jan. <S>
30.—A report has been presented to <j>
the Russian meterological congress, in <♦>
session here,' on the use of selsmo- >••

These disasters are usually preceded <♦>
for several days by slight movements <•>

would give ample warning of disasters m

Many Prominent Men Subpoenaed in
Cleveland to Give Evidence as
to Railway Merger
CLEVELAND, # Ohio, Feb. 13.—The
taking of testimony in the government's
suit under the Sherman anti-trust law
to dissolve the merger of the Union
Pacific and the Southern Pacific and
subsidiary railways in which E. H.
Harriman, Henry C. Frick, H. H. Rog
ers and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. also are de
fendants was resumed here today.
The evidence taken here is similar
to that taken in New York, Pittsburg
and Cincinnati. Prominent railroad
men and big shippers have been sub
Several traffic managers representing
large shippers were examined. The
testimony was ell to the same point,
indicating that there was no competi
tion between the Union and Southern
Pacific Railway companies for freight
traffic to the Pacific coast points.
It was testified that both roads were
jointly represented by the same agent
in the Cleveland territory, who solicited
business impartially for both lines.
Most important in the evidence to
this effect was the establishment of
the fact that each company formerly
maintained a freight solicitor in this
district and that these solicitors were
actively opposed, while since the in
auguration of the Harriman regime the
solicitors have based their action prin
cipally on the local and transit con
ditions on the two lines.
F. W. Boltz of Cleveland, traffic
manager of the-National Petroleum as
sociation, testified the rate on oil to
California from all points east of Chi
cago had been raised to $1 per 100
This had seriously crippled small in
dependent dealers, as the Standard Oil
company, in which Harriman is sup
posed to be interested, could ship by
steamer from New York and was not
compelled to use the railroads, while
the Union Pacific profited greatly by
tjie rise.
This condition, he stated, could hardly
ensue if the Southern Pacific and Union
Pacific were competing.
Does Your Advertising Really Represent
How does your store appear. In the com
pany of other advertised stores? Is It worth
while to conduct the best store and yet run
the second best ads—or to run the second
best store and have the tenth best ads?
Isn't it important that, you adjust the differ
ences between what your store is and what
your advertising: makes it appear ta be?
Attorney Loses Hirsute Appendage at
Election and Charges It Was
Done to Intimidatee
[By Associated Press.]
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 13.—Attorney
E. A. O'Suliivan of New Orleans was
ruthlessly shorn of his flowing whisk
ers at a recent election, and as a result
Mayor Paul Felix and four other prom
inent citizens of Kenner, La., were in
dicted today on a charge of conspiracy
and agreeing to arm themselves with
pistols, guns, scissors and other weap
ons, to injure, oppress and threaten cer
tain voters.
As Mr. O'Suliivan, legal adviser of
opponents to Felix, approached a vot
ing booth, it is said, a number of his
political opponents hopped out and un
kindly refused to permit him to-enter.
"We'll cut off his whiskers," one said.
The delighted politicians fell to with
a will and the barber act was quickly
and painfully, if not artistically, per
Other persons at the polls were in
timidated to some extent also, it is
charged, but their whiskers were not
disturbed, and so they left the prosecu
tion to Mr. O'Suliivan.
Expected Flood in Sacramento Valley
Averted—Vineyards Under
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 13.—From
Redding to Los Angeles there is intel
ligence today of an interruption to the
steady rainfall of the last few days.
Cloudy weather, with intervals of
sunshine, prevails at San 'Francisco,

been done as yet.
The waters of Dry creek, which for a

receding, and unless heavy rains set in

Southeastern Section of City in State
of Panic —Numerous Girls
BERLIN, Feb. 13.—A series of at
tacks on women and girls has set the
southeastern and eastern districts of
Berlin in a state of panic.
Three women were attacked Tues
day evening by a man who used a
sharp instrument, believed to be a large
awl, wounding them on the lower por
tions of their bodies. One of his vic
tims bled to death and the others were
badly wounded.
On Wednesday there were two simi
lar assaults on girls. This afternoon
in the vicinity of Lichtenberg another
girl was attacked in the same manner,
but she warded off the weapon with
her hand, which was severely cut. Her
cries of alarm brought an excited
crowd, members of which, suspecting
the criminal had taken refuge in a
neighboring house, searched it from
cellar to roof, but he was not found.
A dozen men were arrested, but all
were released on establishing alibis.
This evening an armed youth about
20 years old was arrested. Two of the
victims of the stabber declared they
recognized him as their assailant, and
he was detained.

Unprecedented Scene Attends Adop-
tion of Resolutions Reflecting on
Grand Vizier Kamil Pasha
at Constantinople
a lengthy sitting today the chamber of
deputies passed a vote of want of con
fidence in the grand vizier, Kamil
Pasha, by 198 to 8.
The chamber also directed the presU
dent to communicate to the sultan a
resolution requesting him to appoint
a prime minister possessing the con
fidence of the house.
As a consequence the grand vizier
has handed in his seals as an officer
of the sultan.
The want of confidence vote was the
result of Kamil Pasha's refusal to ap
pear before the chamber today and ex
plain recent ministerial changes.
The scene in the chamber was un
precedented. The galleries were
crowded, many of the foreign diplomats
and several members of the imperial
family also being present.
The session was marked by intense
excitement, and during the course of
an animated debate Deputy Ismail
Haka referred to the grand vizier as
a liar.
A storm of protests against this epi
thet arose, but the president remained
Communications from the former
minister of war and marine, protesting
against their removal by the grand
vizier, were greeted with cheers.
