NEW YORK. Nov. 23.?The prose- v
ution in the case of the Florodora ^
ctress, -Xan Patterson, on trial for s
tiling her lover, "Caesar" Young:, 1
arged an important link in its cirumstantial
chain to day by producing a
tstimony which tended to show that Cl
le course of the bullet precluded the w
ussibility of the bookmaker shooting w
imself. Coroner's Physician O'Han- ?
n, in spite of a most searching ^
oss-examination, declared that the
illet did not touch the second rib and ?*
went downward and backward until 111
struck the spine and was deflected el;
>ward.
The prosecution will produce pistol w
perts to show that Young, squeezed ce
the narrow confines of a hansom au
b on the right hand side, could not on
ve shot himself holding a revolver th
er."h.isJe?t<-shoulder. This is a-vital
int in the prosecution's case and m<
; defense iS prepared to contest it
torously. Additional medical testi- thi
>ny was heard to day bearing the wa
idence given by Dr. O'Hanlon.

THE PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO |
FEEL PROUD OF OUR NEW
WATER SYSTEM.
CHAIRMAN DEBOLT TURNED THE
WATER IN AT 2:30 THIS AFTERNOON.
To-day the people of Fairmont have
he opportunity, of seeing the greatest;
rater works system in the State of
Vest Virginia begin operation. A
reat deal has been said from time to
ime about the new* water works and '
; has now come to the point of being 1
reality. For two years America's t
onstrtictive genius has struggled 1
ith the problem and to-day it is rc- i
arded with an ornament to our c
Late, one in which every citizen of t
airmont has an interest and of which g
; should feel proud. After two years s
' arduous toil with pick and shovel
ill and hammer, the people are eel c
irating the result. a
Fairmont is one of the cities in T
bicli the water system has been sac- v,
ssfully managed by the municipal h

veral years ago it became plain R
at a new and more complete system ci

"X
steps were taken to belter the sys- th
n. Councilman George DeBolt has re
?n chairman of the water committee ah
;r since being elected a member of w:
city council. During the con- ac
uction of the present works lie and ne
mcilmen W. S. Haymond and M. L. to
tehinson, have composed that com- we
tee. m:
fhtn it was seen that a new system ]
i needed these men immediately ne.
an to plan and consider. The wat- att
works' systems of various places mo
he United States were visited and net
lly the work was started in Oc- val
$r, 1902. These men have negledt- dec
ifieir important business day after bui

way the affair has been managed. abc

hog Cabin hill was chosen.
jThe contract was let to Eldridge &
B^rtlett, contractors, of Osslning, N.
Y. J. B. Rider, of Connecticut, was
employed as consulting engineer.
?njrr Grahilis, of Syracuse. N. Y..
acted as foreman for the contractors
and' the work was begun. A smaller
system than the present one was contracted
for but the persons who had
the-affair in charge soon saw that a
larger and better one was needed,
rite council wisely decided to put the
natter wholly in the hands of the wat- (
jr committee, the members of which
tad thoroughly studied the undertak- ,
ng and who had the city's best inter
ssts at heart, and they did what they .
bought and what everyone who has
:iven the matter unprejudiced con- ,
ideratlon thinks was for the best.
The old water pipes throughout the
ity were worn out or rusted to pieces
nd $70,000 was spent for new pipes,
'he estimated cost of the new system as
necessarily overrun and then the
owl began. The city election canic
h and the opposition made It a cam- ^
aign cry that the administration was
eftauding the city ; of, thousands of
^Tlafs!' tPamphlets were issued that
ic new works would have to be sold,
ven the committee in charge was no- 15
ised of pocketing a large sum of the
xpayers' hard earned money. Yet c'
rough ail these uncalled-for mis- ?!
presentations the committee worked
iead for the welfare of the city Y
ithout replying to the slanderous
cusations. Many would-be promint
men of our city- have just reason
lilile their faces in shame for the ^
ly they knowingly lied about the f
itter.

It was at once seen that it would be
cessary to keep some man (here to '' '

ill

rided that it would be better to "f*
