Trials in Which Attempts Were
Made to Prove Alibis.
CASE OF GORTON TWINS
Where Lives Have Depended Upon
Accuracy or Inaccuracy of a
Clock?Striking Resemblance Be
tween Two Persons ? Criminals'
The alibi has always been a favor
ite defence with caloulating crim
inals. It has, on the other hand, In
hundreds of cases, extracted the inno
cent from the meshes of a net of cir
cumstantial evidence which must
otherwise have inevitably dragged
s tnem to unmerited doom.
Clocks have played an important
part in these defences. Lives have
depended on their accuracy or inac
curacy. In the case of a man named
Hardy, who was accused of having
taken part in a murder with others,
one of the murderers, after the crjuie
was committed, made his way home
as fast as possible. It was night and
there was no one in his house but a
servant Putting the clock in the hall
back two hours, the man went to bed.
and rising shortly afterward awoke
the servant and ordered her tq go
down stairs and see what was tho
time. The girl did so, and once more
letired to her room, when the mur
derer, stealing softly downstairs in
his bare feet, once more put the clpck.
right. The unsuspecting girl's evi
dence that the prisoner was in bed at
the' time when the crime was com
mitted secured his acquittal on his
trial. The truth was made known
oy a deathbed confession some years
Witnesses who come forward to
prove alibis by the clock sometimes
prove very unsatisfactory. In a mur
der case at the Central Criminal
Court two witnesses sv/ore most per
sistently to the prisoner having been
in their company at the hour when
the prosecution contended he was en
gaged in the crime.
"Are you quite certain of the exact
time?" asked the counsel for the pros
"Certain," replied the first witness.
"How are you so sure about it?"
asked the barrister.
"We were in the Bear public house,
and I saw the time' by the clock in
the bar," replied the witness. "It was
?7 minutes past 9."
"You saw that time yourself?"
asked the counsel.
One of the detectives engaged in
the case here whispered something to
Ihe barrister, and he turned to the
witness once more.
"You see that clock," he said, point
ing to the clock in the court. "What
Is the time by it?"
The witness turned ghastly pale,
scratched his head, gasped, and was
silent. He could not tell the time.
The alibi bubble was burst. The pris
oner was condemned.
A young girl who lived with her
parents In a lonely part of Kirkcud
bright, was one day left alone in their
cottage while her father and mother
were harvesting. On their^return the
girl was found murdered. W surgical
examination revealed the fact that the
injuries inflicted must have been the
work of a left-handed man, and the
police' discovered In the soft ground
around the cottage the imprints of the
hoots of a running man. These Im
pressions corresponded exactly with
the hoots of a young laborer named
William Richardson, who was ac
quainted with the dead girl, and who
also was left handed. Richardson, on
being asked where he was on the day
of ,t.he crime, declared that he was
employed the whole day in the work
of his master, a farmer, some dis
tance away. This fact was borne
witness to by the farmer and Rich
ardson's fellow servants,, and the po
lice were baffled.
Tho alibi, in spite of all the other
f-uapicious circumstances against the
prisoner, appeared so strong as to he
unassailable. But the police perse
vered, and at last one of the detec
tives discovered that Richardson and
his fellow servants had that day been
employed in driving their master's
carts. These carts had been driven
in a direction which took them close
to the scene of the crime, and while
they bad been passing through a wood
Richardson had requested his com
rades to stop a few minutes while he
ran to" a smith's shop and back. They
did so., and one of the drivers remem
bered that Richardson, when he re
turned, had been absent half an hour
ly his watch. This was ample time
for him to run to the cottapo, commrr.

IMFUh? r-oOD IN NEW YORK.
Enough Destroyed Annually to Feed
The food condemned by the board
of health and ? destroyed in this city
in a year, if accumulated in one spot,
would make a "pyramidal hill two
huadred'leet broad at the base and
three hundred feet high. In quantity
it would be sufficient to feed 5,000
persons throughout the year, supply
ing thorn with meat, fish, game and
poultry, vegetables, groceries, all va
rieties of fruit and confectionery.
There is a ceaseless vigilance in
New York to insure pure food for its
inhabitants. This does not mean that
thousands of tons of adulterated and
harmful foods are not eaten yearly?
for the channels by which they may
reach the tables of rich and poor are
many, and the carelessness of house
keepers and cooks are responsible for
much. But at the gates of the city
where food is admitted by rail and by
water, at the wholesale markets, at
stores and among the push-cart ven
ders of edibles the inspectors of the
health department are always at
work. During the ripe-fruit season
they are most active, and their work
is the heaviest. Their authority is
almost supreme, and they can order
the destruction of a train load or a
ship load of fruit or vegetables, or a
hundred head of cattle infected with
dhease, Involving a loss to the own
ers of thousands of dollars.
In the last twelve months 7,172,347
pounds of food stuffs were con
demned, seized and destroyed. Some
of this?especially fruit brought in
by ships?went out to sea and was
dumped in the briny deep. The en
tire shipload was a loss through a de
la3'ed voyage in hot weather, causing
fermentation to set in among the per
ishable cargo. Many a shipload of
bananas have gone that way.
Of the more than 7,000,000 pounds
of food destroyed in the last year,
4 039,090 pounds were fruit. Meat
came next?more than a million
pounds having been deemed unfit to
use. Vegetables were a close third,
In addition to this, solid food, the
amount of milk destroyed in the year
has been 31,000 quarts. This, seen
at once In all its bulk, is a lot of milk.
It is, however, but "a spoonful" out
of the great river of the liquid food'
that pours into the metropolitan city.
In a year 550,000,000 quarts of milk
are consumed in New York, 1,500,000
quarts a day.
The effort to protect the city from
Impure or innutritious milk has re
sulted jthrough years of legislation
and careful Inspection in making the
dealers careful that the milk they
bring to the city mee*s the legal re
quirements. These requirements in
one way place a premium on poor milk
while guarding the city from milk that
is unhealthy or entirely worthless.
The law calls for not less than 3 per
cent of butter fats In all milk sold in
New York. This is not a high stand
afd, and many dealers avail them
selves of the small percentage re
q*iired to reduce the nutritive quality
of their milk to this low standard.
Many consumers of milk in New
York pay dearly for milk that is above
the legal standard of purity and nu
tritiousness. It will surprise some
people, to know that milk?not cream
?is sold in this city as high as 90
c^nts a quart A sworn statement ac
companies this milk, as to its freeness
from injurious qualities?bacteria,
etc.?and as to its richness in butter
fats. The cows from which this milk
is taken are selected registered Dur
hams and Holsteins. The sanitary
arrangements for the care of the cat
tle and the milk are as perfect as ex
penditure of money and scientific
skill can make them. The milk is kept
and delivered at a proper tempera
Milk left uncovered in the living
room of a tenement house for a few
hours has been found to contain as
many as 50,000,000 bacteria per cubic
centimetre. The expensive milk
served by the expert dairymen may
contain less than 500 bacteria to the
centimetre. This milk is bought
chiefly for feeble and ailing children.
Of the food condemned in this city
by the health department but a small
proportion is of adulterated food.
Less than a hundred tons of groceries
and confectionery have been seized
in the last year because of harmful
In addition to this vast amount of
food condemned and destroyed by or
der of the City's health department,
the people of New York are notori
ously wasteful in the food they throw
away?the refuse from dining rooms
and kitchens that goes to the garbage
barrels. This adds some hundred
thousand tons to the condemned foods
that find their way, in the iron tanks
of the garbage boats, to Barren Isl
and. Thf 1 this huge mass is "tried
out," its c.s extracted and its fertil
i".v ->lemcnts reduced to powder and
In the year 1901 half a million tons
of food stuffs from the kitchens of the
city and of the foods condemned by
the health department were fed to the
busy machinery at Barren island.
Bird Skins for Hats.
A London dealer last year received
from India the skins of G.000 birds of
paradise to adorn the hats of the
feather wearing British women and
to meet the export need. At the same
time he got about h ' a million hum
mini; bird skins, and an equal :?.u,nber
of those of various other tropical
birds. There is an auction room In
London where such things are sold,
and its recent record for a third of
a year was close to 1,000,000 skins,
all told, coming mainly from the East
and West Icdies and Brazil.
