April 26.—Miss Rose Churchill and Miss Elizabeth Gordon were heard In today's ses sion of the Hyde murder trial. Both are nurses who went to the Swope house on December 4 and remained* during the typhoid epidemic. Their evidence was similar to that of the other nurses who have testified. The strongest feature of Miss Mar caret Swope's concluding testimony was her Btory about how Dr. Hyde came to her room while the lights were burning low one night and in the semi-darkness gave her a hypo dermic Injection. The physician walk ed into the room, announced he would give a hypodermic, roiled up her sleeve and Inserted the needle and left, she said. Dr. Twyman was in charge of the case at the time. This arm has since become sore. The state contends t be Injection was of pus germs and not campho rated oil, as Dr. Hyde claimed. Miss Elizabeth Gordon, a nurse, testified late in the afternoon that once while Dr. Hyde was giving Chrlsman Swope a hypodermic he filled his syringe with water which had been used in giving the patient a bath. During the morning session O. H. Gentry, a druggist of Independence, said the strychnine tonic he sold James Moss Hunton and which was used by Colonel Swope was harmless. And to show he believed In bis pre scription he pulled a six-ounce bottle of the tonic from his pocket and took a draught of it. Had Judge I.atschaw known last week as much about the disappear ance of the grand jury notes which fell Into the hands of I)r. Hyde’s counsel last Wednesday, as he does now, three persons would have been ordered arrested by him, acocrdlng to announcement made today. Furthermore, the judge believes that If he had been notified of the loss of the papers as soon as they were missed, they never would have gotten into the hands of the defend ant’s attorneys. The court has put the matter up to Prosecutor Virgil ConklLng and the latter has asked the local bar association to solve the mystery. MI ST 111 Y STAMAHD Dili.

Dedication at Washington Participated in by Dis tinguished Gathering WASHINGTON, April 26.—The beautiful new home of the Interna tional Bureau of the American Re publics, was today formally dedicat ed in the presence of a most dis tinguished company. Just two years ago President Roosevelt laid the cor ner stone of this building, which has been described by Andrew Carnegie as a "Temple of Peace, Commerce and Friendship,” and which Secretary Root has called a "Capitol in the Capital of the united States of all the American Nations.” The cere monies on that occasion were most impressive and elaborate and those of today ^prere fully in keeping with them. The International and local appre ciation of the significance of the dedi cation of this diplomatic palace was abpundanty proved by the presence at the exercises as participants in the program of the President of the United States, the Secretary of State, the Mexican Ambassador, Cardinal Gibbons, Senator Elihu Root, Andrew Cat negie, • Bishop Harding, Director Jona Barrett, members of the dip lomatic corps, of the Supreme Court and the Cabinet as well as senators and representatives of the National Congress, high army and naval offi cers, and a long list of distinguished men and women. The celebration, to which the President referred, as the most im portant international event which Washington had witnessed in many years, was divided into two parts, in the afternoon were held the actual ceremonies attending the formal dedication, when impressive speeches were made by eminent officials and individuals. The ceremonies were initiated by an invocation by Car dinal Gibbons, who was followed by Secretary Knox, who delivered the formal opening address, in his ca pacity of chairman of the Governing Board of the International Bureau of the American Republics. Director John Barrett made a statement de scriptive of the building and the work of the bureau, while Albert Kelsey, of the Philadelphia firm of Kelsey and Crett, who designed the beautiful structure told of its archi tectural features. Secretary Root, who was secretary of state when Mr. Carnegie conceived the project of erecting this building, delivered an address, which was re sponded to by Senor Don Francisco Leon de la Parra, the Mexican am bassador, In behalf of the Latin American diplomatic corps. Mr. Car negie delivered a characteristic ad dress. There were readings of cable messages from the presidents of the Latin American Republics, congratu lating Mr. Carnegie and the Bureau of American Republics upon the com pletion of the great work and then President Taft added his tribute in a speech of about half an hour in length. Just preceding the benediction by Right Reverend Bishop Harding, which concluded the afternoon exer cises, occurred one of the most unique and interesting features of the program, when President Taft and Mr. Carnegie Jointly planted a “Peace Tree” in the patio, or court yard. Tonight the governing board of the bureau and the director gave a reception in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie, which will be attended by the President, the diplomatic corps and officers of the army and navy in full uniform. Altogether, as ex pected, it was one of the most bril liant functions of the social season. The music was provided by the Marine band. The new home of the bureau rep resents the expenditure of one mil lion dollars, of which sum Mr. Car negie contributed seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars and the twen ty-one American Republics the re mainder. It is described by the best critics of architecture and construc tion as one of the most artistic of ficial buildings in the world. Its style of exterior and its arrangement of Interior, are entirely different from the conventional architecture of Washington and yet it is adapted to its environment.

I., April 26.— Developments up to date indicate that through a great swindle manu facturing Jewelers of Rhode Island and other states have been robbed of goods valued at half a million dol lars. Ten arrests have already been made in Alabama and Texas. Details of the swindle were made public here today by Representative Harry Cutler of this city, who was a member of a committee of the New Jersey board of trade which was set the task of capturing the conspir ators. The scheme worked upon the man ufacturers was to buy jewelry throughout the country and ship to Montgomery, Alabama. After that purchasers for the Montgomery firm would ship to other stores con trolled by it. These were then cred ited as the real shipments of valu able goods and so listed. Stores were then set on fire, it is alleged, and dummy packages were listed as lost assets by the firms In bank ruptcy proceedings. New York Machine Will Probably Not be Able to Shake Him; Would Like to ALBANY. N. Y„ April 26.—Mes sages in generous numbers poured into the executive chamber today, bearing congratulations to Governor Hughes on his appointment to the supreme bench. Friends and supporters ot the gov ernor, however, are plainly down cast at the prospect of losing so val ued a leader. On me other hand, those opposed to the governor's pol icies as pursued during his term, have little to say, other than to ex press gratification at his appoint ment, which will remove him from the field of active politics. The executive program in the legislature probably will not be materially af fected by the governor’s action. Wuile It Is expected that Governor Hughes will be confirmed with little or no delay, it Is understood here that he will remain as tne chief ex ecutive of New York until October and will not take the oath of his new office until the fall term ot the su preme coWrt opens, the a*#nd Mon day in that month. There has been much speculation ever since It was first intimated that Governor Hughes would be tendered a place on the supreme bench, as to whether bis appointment would take him out of the fall campaign in New York where Republican leaders say he is sorely needed. President Taft would not discuss this phase of the case. He has been anxious to secure the best man he could for the supreme court vacancy and he feels that he has done so. He was much elated over Governor Hughes’ acceptance. The appointment of Governor Hughes came as a surprise, despite the fact that it had been generally understood the position would be tendered him. President Taft had been warned Governor Hughes might not be able to accept because bis service as governor of New York had depleted his small private fortune and he felt the necessity of again en tering the practice of law to earn a competence for himself and fafin ily. This did not deter the Presi dent, however, and he had optimis tically awaited a reply. VISITS AIR SHIP PARK. Roosevelt Spend* Half Ray There— Has Distinguished Callers and Is Dined.
