Kennedy, alias Rich ard Jackson, alias "Yellow," whose secend trial on the charre of murder In connection with the ehootln* and killing of Policeman Kupone C. Robineon on January 21. l»02. Is pending In Judge Cook'a court. Yesterday he was booked at the City Prison on a charge of assault to rob on complaint of R. Alkyo, a Japanese merchant, who was held up a few minutes before the slaying of Robinson. Appointment Not Yet Settled. Mayor Schmitz stated yesterday that the appointment of a City Engineer to succeed C. E. Grunsky would not be made until May 1 next. The situa tion remains practicallj* unchanged, the three strongest candidates still be ing Henry Lynch, Charles Rogers and Commissioner of Works Woodward. as similar questions had brought like objections every time the detective had been called by the defense. The Fed eral attorney cited the decision handed down by the United States Supreme Court' within the last fortnight in the postal frauds case ( of G. W. Beavers, holding that the Indictment itself, until contradicted by positive testimony, es tablishes a prima facie case sufficient to hold a defendant for trial, and that the defense is not entitled to impeach the indictment even by testimony tend ing to show that the Grand Jury acted on insufficient evidence. Heney con tinued: This Is another fishing excursion, but, under the doctrine of the Beavers decision, the de fence has no right to expose what occurred be fore the Grand Jury. When this hearing; opened tb« defendant* first attempted to at tack the indictment. Then, finding themselves In a bole, they said: "We canont be hurt worw than we are now, «j let us find out what evidence they presented to the Grand Jury." Hence they have been weeks calling Government witnesses and questioning them in order that they, when the trial comes on at "Washington, may have manufactured evident* to meet that of the Government. I will go farther and nay that they have manufactured evidence right here and arc trying to prevent your Honor from eeeing the marks of author ship upon it. "We insist that we have a right to question Burns as to facts bearing on the authorship of the anonymous let ters," said Knight. "We challenge counsel to put his finger on a bit of manufactured evidence." "I can point out a dozen," retorted Heney. "That comes with poor grace when the Government is picketing my office with detectives and shadowing Dimond day by day," was Knight's rejoinder. "Nonsense," laughed Burns in the witness chair. "The Government is doing no such thing. No detective on my staff Is bothering Mr. Knight or his client." i "We propose to ask this witness as to his knowledge of certain facts stated in the anonymous letters and to show by his testimony that these facts were locked in the bosoms of two or three men, of whom Dimond was not one." "I will permit you to ask your ques tions," said the commissioner, "and will rule on them when I hear them. But I will limit the questions very strictly to the lines dellned in the Beavers decision." HE REFUSES TO TALK. Then, in answer to Wheeler's ques tions. Burns told the court that he had first come to California to work up this case in June, 1903, and had re^ mained here until the following Sep tember, not returning till February of the present year. He had marked the money Harlan and Valk received from Benson In December last, but had not telegraphed anything about these mat ters to any person in California. Burns added: "I never knew that Town Talk and the Examiner had received anony mous attacks on Hyde until Mr. Heney told me yesterday that he had ; this information from counsel "for . the de fense." "Did you ever report that a woman named Ellen Ellsworth, had 'been writ ing anonymous letters to Hyde?" asked Wheeler. "Yes," said Burns; "I told Mr. Heney that she had been writing such letters to Hyde — letters that related to his do mestic affairs." "Whence came that Information?" "I decline to. say." Heney objected to the question, and Commissioner Heacock sustained the objection. ¦'¦'¦* . . ' : - *: > •'."•". "Have you ever met that woman?" "No." "Have you had an agent dealing with "NO." „ :. \ . - • • "Has any one who met her come to you with a statement from her?" "I decline to say." "Did you see Walter K. Slack in San Francisco in June, 1903?" • "I decline to'answer." % So it went for some time, the com missioner refusing to compel the Gov ernment agent to disclof^ evidence In his possession or the source from which it was derived. At last Wheeler and Knight gave it up and permitted Burns to go. "Then they called a num ber of respected citizens to testify a3 to their client's good character. These were William B. Bradford, Charles W. Kellogg, L. S. Pease, Judge James M. Seawell, E. G. Scott of the Cham ber of Commerce, ex- Judge Charles W. Slack, G. H. Thompson, Henry Eickhoff and John H. Miller, all 'of whom declared in the regulation phrase that they had known Dimond for many years and were acquainted with his reputation for truth, honesty and integrity, and that that reputation was good. The rest of the day was given to the testimony of Harry E. Steece, a former agent of the Interior Department, and of Charles R. Gagen, the' official ste nographer, who,' with Clement Ben nett, is turning out massive volume-* containing the testimony taken in the case. Steece and Gagen are almost the only witnesses the Government has called during the hearing. The former related the story of his interview with Dimond in February, 1903, when the latter had written Judge Pugh asking for a conference. He admitted that he had failed to get any information from the defendant regarding, land cases, Dimond confining himself to an exhortation to the witness to inquire among Hyde's associates as to his high standing in the community. DIMOXD'S ERRORS PROVED. Gagen's testimony was more impor tant. He corrected the record as to the errors- Dimond had made when on the stand in regard to the names of Susan Dickinson, Colonel Zabriskie and Steece. Dimond had said "Anne Dick inson," "Brohaski" and "Stace," juft the same blunders. made in the anony mous. ,ietters now in evidence. This is one of the strong points, in the Gov ernment claim that *" Dimond wrote these letters. Gagen said that, not understanding the importance of a lit eral transcription of the witness' mis takes he had followed ' the rule . ob taining among court reporters every where to correct such errors in the record. The defense made no objec tion to the testimony, McEnerney im proving the opportunity to "perpetrate one of his innumerable witticisms. "The only persons who, never make mistakes are the lawyers and the newspaper reporters/' said the. big at torney. '"'*.'., :':, The examination was' adjourned over till to-morrow morning, as -the •_ com missioner, has another case on hand to day. The attorneys for 'the defense told his" Honor that' they would prob ably conclude their case by the end of the week. The commissioner, could I not restrain a" sigh of : relief at the pros pect of release from the long, hearing. SONS' DIFFERENCES DID NOT ' CAUSE MOTHER'S DEATH Frederick \Y. Lawton Admits That He Wholly Misunderstood IIJs Brortier's Position. In yesterday's newspaper accounts of the death of Mrs. Franklin Lawton one of the causes of the unfortunate woman's untimely taking off was said to have been a letter from her son, Frederick, to his» brother, Louis. Fur thermore, it was stated that quarrels between the brothers hastened their mother's death. The following letter from Frederick W. Lawton puts the case in another light: SAN FRANCISCO. Ai>ril 26. 1JKH. Editor Call : In regard to the letter pub lished in Tuesday's Call from me to my brother, Louis I.

'•¦• ¦ The board had requested Kirk for permission to ignore the law compell ing the securing of the signatures of parents or guardians when they £estl fled, as to the number of children un der their control. , Kirk in his reply stated that he had no authority to grant the desired permission, and that the law must be obeyed to the letter. >The Board of Education had ex plained to. Kirk that the law had re duced the daily taking of names from about 6500 last year to less than 4000 this year. As the school census, ac cording to law, must be taken between April 15 and April 30, it follows that the total will fall far short of the number taken last year, when it was in excess of 90,000. Relative to the extension of time asked for by the Board of Education for the completion of the census, Kirk states that his office does not require the returns until July 1. The board, however, .deems, this small comfort In the premises, as the law on the point Is explicit that the census must be completed by April 30. The importance of the matter to the schools is. apparent when it is known that the , State pays $9 to. the local school fund for each child of school age. Last year the sum realized was more than $310,000 on a census of 90,000. The refusal of some parents and guardians to. give their signatures nul lifies the census so far as their children are concerned, and the delay in secur ing signatures will mean the loss of at least 10,000 names and a consequent reduction in the revenue of $90,000. There remain but four days more to take the census,. and the board makes a last appeal to parents to furnish their signatures on request of the cen sus marshals. . Valiooa schools having boon selected !'n the general San Francisco commit tee to make an educational display in brha'.f of this city at St. Louis, an im portant meeting of principals of these schools was held yesterday afternoon with the finance committee for the San rrancjsco exhibit at Ft. Louis. The purpose' of the gathering was to gen orally discuss the situation and to asree" upon a general color scheme of installation of exhibits, so that a har monious effect might be produced. The schools 'represented at the conference are the Humboldt Evening School, the Douglass Primary School, the Hamil ton Grammar, the Lick School, the Cal ifornia School of Design and the Lowell High School. There will be a general display of ?chopl work, school photographs, etc., illustrative of the educational system of the State of California as a whole in the education building at St. Lo-uis. For this reason the general committee found if advisable not to duplicate in the space that is available for exhibits in the San Francisco building, conse quently schools that are types were selected. The technical education, in which San Francisco has more insti tutions engaged than any city west of Chicago-; will make a strong feature of the San Francisco display. In addi tion to the school principals that were present at the conference yesterday afternoon Miss Kathryn Ball was in attendance to represent drawing in the public schools. Various suggestions were made and adopted. The school principals prom ised that the school exhibit would be ample to do credit to the city. The general color scheme will now be care fully worked out. a general understand ing having been reached with the school principals. Among the prominent educators In vited to the conference were: Principal Taafe. Frank Roberts and C. S. Henry ot the Humboldt Night School; Mis* Krthryn Ball. Miss Winifred Tarpey, principal of the Douglas? Primary School: Principal H. Ji. KeRoipr of the Hamilton Grammar School, Principal .George Merrill or the Lick and Wii mtnltng srhnois. Captain Fletcher of the Cali fornia 6ehool of D**!m and Principal Frank Morton of the Lowell High School. ' Others were also present and took part in the conference. Board of Education Fears Be venue Based on Number of Pupils Will Diminish Counsel for Henry P. Dimond, one of the defendants in the land frauds case, made an unexpected move yes terday in their attempt to controvert the Government charge that their client wrote the anonymous letters which have suddenly become the turn ing point of the preliminary examina tion before United States Commissioner Heacock. They tried to put Dimond's co-defendant and former client, Fred A. Hyde, on the stand. Hyde refused to testify on behalf of his alleged fel low conspirator. Had he consented, he would have been asked to produce a series of other anonymous letters with which, for three years, it is claimed, lie had been annoyed — letters of a scur rilous character. On Hyde's refusal to testify Wheeler and Knight. Dimond's counsel, alleged that the commissioner should or der him to the stand. They declared that these hitherto unmentioned let ters would conclusively appear to have been written by the same person that wrote the epistles sent to Secretary Hitchcock of the Interior Department, to William J. Burns, the Government detective, and to Dimond himself. But the commissioner was unwilling to make an offhand ruling that Hyde must take the stand, and the question was reserved for decision later. Dimond's counsel then recalled De tective Burns and tried to force him to answer Questions regarding his knowl edge on the subject of the anonymous letters already in the case. But the secret service man told no more than he wanted to, the commissioner sus taining the objections of Government Counsel Heney that under a recent de cision of the Supreme Court many of Wheeler's questions were inadmissible. These questions brought into the case a mysterious former friend of Hyde, one Mrs. Ellen Ellsworth, who. It is hinted. Is the author of the letters which Hyde does not want to disclose. Th° claim of Dimond's counsel now is thai this woman wrote the letters al ready in evidence at the suggestion of Government agents in order that they might be used in some way against Dimond. On the opening of court defendant Di mond was recalled by Samuel Knight, of his counsel, for further redirect ex amination. This proved brief. Knight merely calling out additional denials of knowledge regarding facts mentioned in the anonymous letters. Then the witness was permitted to leave the stand temporarily, while his counsel tried a new line of attack on the Gov ernment's charge that he wrote the letters. OTHER AXON'YMOFS EPISTLES. "We desire to call Mr. Dimond's co defendant, Frederick A. Hyde," said Knight, "in order to prove the receipt by him of a series of anonymous let ters during a long period before the beginning of this case. The scurrility of these letters is such that Mr. Hyde is extremely reluctant to produce them, but their importance to our client, Dl monl. is so great that we are forced to disregard this objection." "This is a Joint proceeding," inter jected Garret W. McEnerney, of Hyde's counsel, "and therefore you have no right to call Hyde. He will decline, under our instructions, to be sworn." This brought Dimond's other attor ney, Charles S. Wheeler, to his feet. He said: The authorship of these anonymous letters has for the moment overshadowed all ©ther 1**ues in this case. We have suddenly been stunneJ by the assertion that our client, a man cf unim]>eached character, Cescended to the contemptible course of writing these letters, and he i* now charged with adding blackmail and perjury to bis alleged conspiracy. We are content to let his pu'lt or innocence nar.il upon the question of his authorship of the letters. It is not too much to fay that we know he did not write them, and we purpose to show who did. If the court will authorize us' t-> put Mr. Hyde on the stand we shall ehew that for years before the letters now in evidence were concocted Hyde was receiving other anonymous letters — letters that exhibit the scoun<3relie>m of a demon and the cunning of a rat. These letters arc in exactly the same style of typewriting as the anonymous com munications received by Dimond. by the Sec retary of the Interior and by Mr. Burns. We are also prepared to show that on Au gust 2. 1003. Town Talk received an anony rrnus letter containing similar charges against HyJe and the «un« allegations regarding the confession of J. H. Schneider to the Govern ment. With this letter was inclosed a $29 gold certificate to pay for its publication. A similar letter was later in the came month sent to the Examiner, with $10 inclosed. These communications were not published. So v.~e ask your Honor to call Mr. Hyde to the ets.nd. In order that we may prove that for three years he ha* U*en getting such letters through the malls. We shall al*o ask for an orfier for the production of all such letters now In his possession. I think an examina tion of them will come near giving your Honor a clew to the real author of this whole fries cf anonymous- epistles. "Dtt you mean, Mr. Wheeler," asked Government Counsel Heney, "that DI mond's writing on the stand yesterday and the letter sent to the Secretary of the Interior were not the product of the same hand?" "Yes, most assuredly," was Wheeler's response. "Very well," said Heney quietly. "I asked the question because I just wanted to know how much weight to give your assertion. We shall do all we properly can to aid you in getting these other letters into the record. But, while I have not had an opportunity to look up the law on the subject, I am disposed to agree with Mr. McEnerney that Hyde, being a codefendant, cannot be compelled to take the stand.- We are unwilling: to express an opinion that may adversely affect the Government's right to hold Hyde for trial." *"In my present feeling on the sub ject I shall decline to grant Mr. Knight's motion," ruled Commissioner He-acock. "If he satisfies me as to his right to ask it I will swear Mr. Hyde later." This ended the important subject for the day. Counsel will probably present briefs on the law point involved, and the commissioner will then decide fin ally whether to call Hyde to the stand. BUIIXS IS RECALLED. "William J. Burns," called Wheeler, and once more the widely ' known se cret service man returned to the stand, where the defense had already made many attempts to force him to disclose the evidence on which the Federal Grand Jury indicted Hyde, Benson, Di mond and Schneider. He was asked when he first took up this case for In vestigation, and the .question at .once brought an objection from Heney.
