SCHMIDLAP MURDER CASE. Dramatic Trial Ends in Disagreement of the Jury. Denver.- A dramatic incident In the trial of Mrs. Helen Schmidlap for the murder of her husband took place Thursday when she took the stand in her own defense and told why and how she shot him. While separat'd from him and In California site became despondent be cause of ids cruelty, dissipation and refusal to support her and started to suffocate herself and two children with gas. “But pondering over the question of self-destruction." said Mrs. Schmid lap, "convinced me that 1 was pursu ing tlie wrong course; that It was not my children and I who should die; but that my husband was the one who should pay his life for the torment and agony he bad caused me to suffer, in an instant my resolve was taken, ami from that moment forth I was deter mined that ho should be killed and that I should go to Denver and do it.” Coming to Denver she found her hus bund at a rooming house. After some conversation tie > went into a room to gether. ‘‘What did you have with you?” her counsel asked her. “I had brought a handbag in which I carried my gun.' “What happened?” “We went into the room together, ‘.he door was then locked. 1 asked him why he had disgraced and abused me and tried to make n prostitute out of me. His only answer was that I was 'nutty.* He noticed the handbag and asked me what "as in it. I told him a gun.” At this point .Mr. Hilton Interrupted the witness. “Just tell the jury now whether or not you had received a message from your husband before that time.” "Yes, he telephoned me and asked “whether 1 wanted him to go out. I re plied that 1 did not care to see him then because he had already disgraced me too much." Resuming with the story. Mr. Hilton said: "Now, then, after entering the room what did you say to him and what, did he say to you?” "About the only tiling ho would say. to use liis own expression, was that I was 'nuts.' ” "What did lie do with the bag." “Picked It Up and throw it on the bed. I was sitting on a chair. Then he remarked in a casual way: ‘What are you going to do about it?’ I replied: •Unless you brace up and take care of me and the children, I am going to kill you.’ Without hesitation he answered: •Oh. no, you won't; I’ll bump us both off.' ” Following lids remark, the witness said Schmidlap started to execute his threat. Site tried to save herself. Both struggled about the room. She seized him by the hand that held the weapon. The gun “broke." The cartridges fell to the floor. At tills point both were some what exhausted. They released each other. Schmidlap stooped to the floor and picked up the cartridges. He reloaded the revolver and again ad vanced toward his wife, according to her testimony. A second struggle en sued. She gained possession of the gun. '“Then 1 she: Dim again, again and again,” she exclaimed, with a gesture of the hand. Taking up the narrative from this point Mrs. Schmidlap coolly told how she had walked from the room into the hall, met tlie landlady and a policeman, handed tlie revolver to the latter: told him she had shot her husband, and readily consented to be taken to police headquarters at once. The case went to tlie jury at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon. The jury, after deliberating forty eight hours, failed to agree. Being as sured that ;in agreement was impossi ble, Judge I’almer dismissed the jury Saturday. Mrs. Schmidlap was re nianded to jail and It is possible that the prosecution will not be able to get to the trial of th" case again before the winter term. In January. According to a statement made by the foreman. J. C. McMahon, there never was a chance of the jury getting together at any time. The first ballot taken when they went out Thursday showed that seven were for acquittal and five for conviction of murder in the first degree. On the second ballot one changed from guilty to acquittal. The ballot stood that way, four to eight, to the end. Compromise verdicts were discussed through the various degrees of homicide. but they hesitated be cause they were not informed as to the punishment that might be inflicted, a tiling that the court had instructed them they had ho rlgh to consider. Those who 1 bought the woman guilty would consent to no other verdict, and those who believed her innocent would consent to nothing but Involuntary tnanslaglit) 1 Colorado Baptists. Denver.

PRESIDENT AT RALEIGH N. C. Opposed to Government Ownership— But Government Supervision Is a Necessity—Experience Has -Shown That Railroads Must Be Controlled. Raleigh. N. C - With the music of the hand and hearty cheers greeting him, the President reached Raleigh promptly on time. There were nearly 40,000 people in the fair grounds when the President arrived. The President was introduced by Lieutenant Governor Winston, and began his remarks with a pleasant ref erence to the occasion, continuing as follows: "1 do not believe in government own ership of anything which can with pro priety be left in private hands, and In particular I should most strenuously object to government ownership of railroads. Hut 1 believe with equal firmness Hint It is out of the question for the government not to exercise a supervisory and regulatory right over the railroads; for it is vital to the well-being of the public that they should be managed in a spirit of fair ness and justice toward all the public. "Actual experience lias shown that it is not possible to leave the railroads uncontrolled. Such a system, or rather such a lack of system, is fertile in abuses of every kind, and puts a pre mium upon unscrupulous and ruthless cunning in railroad management. "There are some big shippers and some railroad managers who are al ways willing to take unfair advantage of their weaker competitors, and they thereby force other big shippers and big railroad men who would like to do decently into similar acts of wrong and Injustice, under penalty of being left behind In the race of success. "Government supervision Is needed quite as much in the Interest of the big shipper and of tin* railroad man who want to do right as in the interest of the small shipper and the consumer. "Experience Inis shown that the present laws are defective and need amendment. The effort to prohibit all restraint of competition, whether rea sonable or unreasonable, is unwise. Whnt we need is to have some admin istrative body with ample power to for bid combination that is hurtful to the public, and to prevent favoritism to one individual at the expense of an other. "Hut In my judgment the most im portant tiling to do Is to give to this administrative hotly power to make Its finding effective, and this can be done only by giving it power, when com plaint is mude of a given rate as being unjust or unreasonable. If it finds the complaint proper, then itself to fix a maximum rate which it regards as just and reasonable, this rate to go Into effect practically at once, that Is within a reasonable time, anti to stay in effect, unless reserved by the courts. "I earnestly hope that we shall see a law giving tl;is power passed by Congress." CANAL WILL BE BUILT. So Says the President at Jacksonville Florida. Jacksonville, Fla. —The reception to President Roosevelt Saturday was a hearty one. Thousands thronged the streets on the line of march anti the President showed in his manner his appreciation of the good will thut was manifested on every side. In his ad dress he sulu: "Here in Florida, the first of the Gulf states which I have visited upon this trip, 1 wish to say a special word about the Panama canal. I believe that the canal will be of great benefit to all our people, hut most of all to the states of the South Atlantic, the Gulf and the Pacific slope. "When completed the canal will stand as a monument to this nation; for It will be the greatest engineering t'eat ever accomplished In the world. It will be a good thing for the world as a whole, and for the people of the Isth mus and the the northern portions of South America in particular. Recause of our especial interest in it, and be cause of the position we occupy on this hemisphere, it is u matter of special pride to us that our nation, the Ameri can nation, should have undertaken the performance of this world duty. “A body of the most eminent engi neers in the world, both Americans and foreigners, has been summoned to advise as to the exact type of canal which should be built. At no distant date I hope to be able to announce whnt their advice is. and also the ac tion taken upon their advice. Mean while the work is already well under way, and has advanced sufficiently far to enable mo to announce with cer tainty that it can surely be accom plished, and probably at rather loss ex pense than was anticipated. " But upon the last point, as well as upon the question of time, no positive statement can bo made until the re port of the commission of engineers as to the exact type of canal has been re ceived. The work is ns difficult as it is important; and it Is of course inevit able that from time to time difficulties will occur and checks lie encountered. "No check that may come will l>e of more than trivial and passing conse quences, will inflict any permanent damage, or cause any serious delay. The work can be done, is being done, and will be done. What has already been accomplished is a guaranty us to the future. “The veterans of the Civil War who are here present will toll you that the very rear of an army, even when it Is victorious, is apt to look and behave as if the victory were defeat. And just the same thing is true in any great en terprise in civil life; there are always weaklings who get trampled down or lose heart, and there are always peo ple who listen to their complaints. They amount to nothing one way or the other, so far as achieving results is concerned; and their complaints and outcries need never detain us." New Chicago Union Depot.

Denver. —Pressing desire for reform measures was responsible Saturday for bringing the two executive committees of the stockmen’s associations to a basis of harmony. The success of fu ture efforts for bringing the desired changes about seemed to depend so entirely upon the consolidation, that peisonul differences and conflicting theories were laid aside for the com mon good. The agreement at this time is due to tin! persistent efforts of President Hagenbarth of the national association to restore harmony. To accomplish tills he conceded everything, making It a victory for the American Stock Growers’ Association. It was the only way to bring peace, as the cattlemen of the West refused to countenance the packing interests on their executive committee, so the packers had to go. The railroad interests had been shut out previously, and these interests will now be dealt with from without the or ganization, rather than within it. Following is the full text of the agreement, signed by the executive of ficers of each organization: "First—The membership to consist of live stock producing and maturing interests of the country. "Second—The constitution and by laws of the American Stock Growers’ Association, modified so as to admit to membership associations of live stock producers, as well as individuals, to be made the basis. "Third—One strong central commit tee, appointed by the* association thus formed, to carry on the business of the association. “Fourth —The association to co-op erate with all allied Interests through such sub-committees as may he ap pointed by the executive committee, whenever and wherever the interests of said association and such allied in terests are mutual. “Fifth—The objects of the organiza tion thus formed will he, to represent tlie live stock interests in all matters of general and public Importance, and to conserve the Interests, protect tlie rights and to redress the wrongs of each and till of its members.
