Grand Jury Feels Moral Conviction
That Indictment Was Well
Bloomington, Ind.r March 16. It is
the agreement between Judge Wilson
and Prosecuting Attorney Miller that
the trial of James McDonald, for the
murder of Miss Schafer, will be set
down during the May term of court
at Bedford. Judge Wilson's health is
not good, and the docket is now crowd
ed. Miller says that the trial will
take ten days. Mr. Miller alsr, says
that McDonald will be taken to Bed
ford for arraignment after which he
will be returned to this city for safe
keeping. There is no fear of mob vio
lence at Bedford, but the old jail is
an unsafe structure. It is ci secret
that the grand jury, in returning an
Indictment against McDonald, did not
stop with sufficient to warrant a re
port, but wiit iii.o the testimony in

victim of clairvoyant TerroU, who
fled from th3 city after a stay of two
weeks has come to light. Augusta
Schultz, a German girl, who came here
recently, announced that she had
placed $1,000 in Terroll's hands on
the latter's promise that he would
double her. money in four weeks.
The confiding young woman called
on Terroll a week ago and told him
she had $950 in bank. He told her
she was foolish not to have it earning
something and suggested that he
knew a way to make it earn a big
profit without risk. On his advice
she got the money and took it to him.
He sealed it in an envelope and plac
ing it on a string, hung it around the
girl's neck, telling her not to open
the envelope until a month from that
The girl followed the instructions
until she learned of the fraud perpe

district court, of Justus L. Brodrick,

got into an argument with Mr. Cooper,
of Wisconsin, as to the authorship of
the document and insisted, over the
protest of Mr. Cooper, that it was
prepared under the direction of Gon.
Bristow. He defended the committee,
of which he is a member, in giving
publicity to the report, sajing that
the United States is too powerful and
too great to convict any man by a
suppression of the facts. He said the
members of the house after threats
to "tear the roof off the department"
had turned tail and voted that the de
partment should investigate the con
gressmen. The senate passed the fortification
appropriation bill after a three hours'
discussion of the amendment authoriz
ing the purchase of an experimental
torpedo boat and the provision for
the purchase of sites of defense works
in the Hawaiian islands. The torpedo
boat provision was stubbornly fought,
but- the amendment suggested by the
committee on appropriations was re
tained. The Hawaiian provision
which had been eliminated by the
committee, was restored and the sum
increased from $200,000 as fixed by
the house, to $526,100. Several other
bills were passed. One of these appro

BY ELEVEN WES
British Government- Defeat
,.. ed by an Unique Combination.
BALFOUR MAY RESIGN
Those Terrible Irish" Catch the
Government Benches Xappinjr
and Score Heavily.
An Karly Dissolution of Parliament
Is Foreshadowed by liesult
of This Vote.
London, March 1C. Premier Bal
four's government has been defeated
In the house of commons by the com
bined Liberal and Nationalist vote.
This reverse .vas due to the prohibi
tion by Mr. Wyn'lham. chief secretary
for Ireland, on the teaching of Gaelic
in the junior grades of the Irish na
tionalist schools. Mr. Balfour, though
defeated by a majority of eleven on
this question does not regard the vote
as one of want of confidence and he
will not resign on the account. His
determination not to resign was
strengthened by the fact that shortly
after the foregoing defeat he was able
to secure a majority of twenty-five.
The failure of the government to
carry the house with it on a question
of purely administrative policy in its
Irish department is generally admit
ted to greatly weaken its already
waning prestige with the country, al
though it is not thought probable that
any immediate development will en
sue. In the house of commons itself
to use the words of a prominent mem
ber of the opposition, "all the artillery
in the government arsenals would not
make them surrender office."
It is learned that Premier Balfour
regards it as one of the essential prin
ciples of his party to hold on to the
reins of government for the present at
any rate. What he may do after
Easter still remains in doubt. The
blow just administered makes the
premier's task of holding his party
together doubly difficult, and many
supporters of the government frankly
said that they favored an early disso
lution of parliament rather than again
undergo the humiliation experienced
"Those terrible Irish," as they are
described for the moment by the
Unionists, were entirely responsible
for Mr. Balfour's defeat. On the ques
tion of Catholic education, Monday
night the Nationalists had voted with
the Unionist government but even
while so doing they ..were planning the
tzs .r .. oi me conservatives. Yes
terday afternoon the mine so Ingen
iously laid was set off with a success
that thrilled the country. The strat
egy with which the whole coup was
planned and the scenes that marked
its culmination recalled the times
when Gladstone and Parnell waged a
titanic struggle in the same arena.
An unusually short list of questions
had brought on the business of the
day nearly half an hour ahead of the
usual time. Then languidly the house
resolved itself into committee of sup
ply to dicuss the vote for Irish edu
cation which had already been de
bated. Profound peace reigned and
there was not a sign of the coming
parliamentary storm except to the
few initiated who keenly watched the
whispered conference taking place be
tween the Irish whips. John Red
mond made a complaint about the pro
hibition of Gaelic in the schools, but
instead of a long speech which It
would seem he had prepared, Judging
by the volume of notes in his hand,
the Irish leader said only a few words.
Mr. Wyndham replied with equal brev
ity and it was evident he was saving
himself for a string of protests from
other Irish members.
No one rose to reply to Mr. Wynd
ham, the Irish party for once utilizing
silence as its deadliest weapon. Mr.
Redmond had said there were to be no
speeches and though the rank and file
of Nationalists did not know the rea
son, not having been admitted to the
secret plan set on foot the previous
evening by their leader 'and their
chief whip, they obeyed implicitly.
Discipline triumphed and not one
word came from the Irish benches.
The Liberals, too, sat silent though
they were ignorant of the projected
coup, and without a reply a division
was inevitable. Only then did Mr.
Wyndham and the government whips
realize how deliberately they had
It is learned that John Redmond
and Sir Thomas Esmonde had plann
ed the division for 3 o'clock and the
bells therefor clanged out through the
house at 2:55. In desperation the
government sent messengers in cabs
and with telegrams and to telephones,
but without avail, for when the tellers
of the vote returned the clerk of the
house handed Sir Thomas Esmonde
the coveted little slip of paper which
is given to the winning side.
In a second the members who had
crowded in realized that the govern
ment had been beaten and then there
arose such a cheer as Westminster
has not heard for many a day. Sev
eral times Sir Thomas Esmonde tried
to read out the figures but his voice
was drowned in the uproar. Mr. Bal
four who had been just in time to
vote for the government, sat smiling
grimly. Finally tnere was compara
tive quiet, and Sir Thomas Esmonde
read: "Ayes 141, noes 130." At this
the storm of cheering broke out
afresh. The government was defeated
by eleven votes.
