Indiana Democrats Put Boots to Tom Taggart _ ^ ^ * 11 1 * l i ] Court So Rules-Comes as Surprise-More Highly Damaging Testimony KANSAS CITY, April 28.—At the noon recess in the trial of Dr. B. C. Hyde today, Judge Latshaw ordered that at ail times the defendant should foe brought into and removed from the court room out of the presence of the Jury, In order that the Jurymen might not know that he was in the custody of the authorities. The revocation of Dr. Hyde's bond by Judge Latshaw at the opening of court today was a severe disappoint ment to Mrs. Hyde. She was at the Jail early today waiting to Bee her husband. Thomas H. Swope, Jr., told In court today how he found the cap sules which Dr. Hyde had thrown away on the street. The contents of these, the witness testified, were sent to Chicago, where chemists reported that they found traces of cyanide of potassium. The action of the court In revok ing the Hyde bond was due to the nature of the evidence presented by the state against Dr. Hyde. Without j notifying any one of this Intention, Judge Latschaw summoned County Marshal Joel M. Moyep Into the court room after ihe Jury had been remov ed and said: “In view of the* testimony thus far given In the trial, the court Is con strained to say that it amounts to a presumption that, under the law de prives the defendant of the right to go on the bond, and he is hereby re manded to the custody of the mar shal." Mrs. Hyde stared at the Judge as he spoke and when he had finished 1 she threw her arms about her hus band's neck and sobbed hysterical ly. Mrs. Logan O. Swope arose from her seat and hurried from the court room as soon as she understood the import of the Judge's words. Later when she met Mrs. Hyde standing with an attorney in the hall, sobbing, she passed by quickly, boarded her automobile and went home. Scarcely had the court ceased speaking when Attorney John Lucas, representing Dr. Hyde, had the fol lowing statement entered In the rec ord : “The defendant maintains and al leges the remanding of him to the county Jail pending the trial of his case will have the effect of prejudic ing his right before the Jury, it being construed ns a declaration on the part of the court against his Interest, and leading the Jury to believe he is guilty of the offense charged, and asks the court to rescind the order upon that ground,” "The defendant will not be locked nip with the Jury, nor in the same place with them and the knowledge cannot come to the Jury from any thing that the court can prevent,” answered Judge I^atschaw.

Senator Elkins thereupon gave notice that unless there is bet ter progress In the consideration of • the measure he will not be able long er to resist the demand for night ses sions. The entire debate pertained to amendments permitting traffic agree ments by railroads subject to the ap proval of the Interstate Commerce Commission. Senator Bailey said the senate spent days and even weeks in con sideration of the question of amend ing the railway law and that the only concern exhibited by the senators on the Republean side was as to how they should comply with a platform pledge adopted by the last Repub lican national convention. “We could make any sort of fool jish declaration in our national plat ' forms and you on that side would fol low it,” declared Senator Bailey. “That’s the trouble with American politics. If one party takes up a fool ish Issue, the other party will do likewise. The chief difficulty among senators on the other side is one of nice distinctions as to how they shall comply with party platforms. If that is to be the rule here, tnere will be no need for senators of wisdom, abil ity and learning. All that will be needed to equip a senator for his duties will be ability to read a party ! platfrom. It will mean that able men In the nation will go to the national conventions Instead of to congress. “I can’t make a distinction be ! tween good and bad trusts,” contin | ued the Texas senator. "I want to give warning now that when we at tempt to locate the boundaries of the various kinds of trusts we are trav eling upon dangerous ground. I do not believe that the railroads should be permitted to make any agree ments. When once the anti-trust law is suspended for the railroads, how can you deny the same privilege I to other'equally meritorious inter ests? Why not suspend it for the benefit of the manufacturer, the farmer and the laborer? The sus pension of the anti-trust law In one instance means that It will be emas culated.” Senator Crawford, in the course of his speech, got very much excited over the character of Theodore Roosevelt, whom he eulogized in the highest terms.
