'Policemen, mounted mid afoot, wero there by the score, with strict orders to keep tho crowds moving. Owing to the patierfce, carefulness and steadiness of tho polico there ns no serious outbreak. A great crowd of strikers paraded tho squnro unnio Jestcd. There is n diil'erenco of opin ion today as to tho extent of tho strike.

Secretary Hope declared that the liakers, milk wagon drivers and groc ery clerks would not bo called out.

A detail of mounted policemen dashed through tho archways from Independence hall. Tho crowd scattered right and left before tho horses and the orator tumbled WT tho shoulders or tho other men. Colored Cops Anger Crowd Several minutes of sharp work with horses and clubs served to disperso the mass. A number of colored policemen aroused the ire of tho crowd, and Sup erintendent of Polico Taylor, fearing further trouble, ordered them away. A detail of mounted police, sent to break up another disturbance, was mec by several women who showered them with confetti and defied arrest.

C. March 3. Gilford I'inchot concluded his pait in tho Ballingcr-Piuchof. inquiry today and James It. Garfield, former secretary of the interior, and another prominent member of the Uoosevclt "Tennis cab inet," took the stand. Pinchot 's story ended with the reit eration of the statement that ho had little or no personal knowledgo of tho things to which ho called attention dur ing the four days lie was on tho wit ness stand, and with general defense of the forest service. Pinchot summed up the various "inferences" he wished tho committee to draw from the docu ments which had previously been intio dnccd iu evidence. Tho former foi ester's final day on the witness stand was taken up almost entirely with "inferences and conclu sions." Ho was examined and cross examined as to these until the members of the committeo wero plainly irritated by tho tactics ofvcounsel iu going over tlio same gionnd again and again and pleaded for a chance to draw their own conclusions. About tho only interesting point made by Attorney Vertrees during the day was the suggestion to the commit tee that Pinchot charged Ilallingcr witli "wilful deception" of tho president for a possible misstatement made upon infoniiation furnished by others, where as, Pinchot indefending himself for having made masstatements to tho president, likewise on information of others, declared that he meiely made "simple mistakes."

Garfiold insisted that the supervisory power of tho executive to withdraw lands fiotn entry has ex isted from the beginning of the go em inent.

HYDEDENOUNCED BY WIDOW OF SWOPE Dramatic Recital of Fears and Suspicions Told on "Witness Stand DOCTOR INDICTED; THIRTEEN COUNTS Charged With IVholcsale Toisoning in Attempt to Slay Family KANSAS CITY, March 5. Disre garding tho advice of her attorneys, Mis. Logan Swopo today laid bare, while giving testimony in the slander suit of her son-in-law, Dr. B. Hyde, the innermost secrets of her houshold for years. With tears coursing her cheeks, she repeatedly rose from tho witness chair as she told her story. Sho told of tho courtship of Hyde, how sho tried to like him as a son-in-law and of her beliof that ho had attempted to murder her relatives, and at ono tinio tried to poison her. The charge that Hyde tried to poison Mrs. Swopo is a new featuro of tho case. "He brought me a glass of water on December 12 that tasted bitter," sho said. "I drank" some of it, noticing a peculiar taste, and asked him whero he got it. " 'Out of tho water cooler,' he re plied. " 'Ho was trying to poison you,' said ono of my daughters. "I' demanded that j ho give mo an emetic. This probably saved my life." rf'Hyde married my daughter for monoy, not love," she continued, ex citedly. "IIo followed her like a hawl: follows a hen. Sho was his prospective prey. Wanted to Reform Hyde "At last, despite all objections, they wero married. I tried to mako a man of him. I wanted to give my daugh ter an opportunity to reform him." Hero tho woman's emotions over came her. Tears flowed from her eyes. Sho choked for a moment and was un able to speak. Summoning alL her strength, sho arose from her chair and almost shrieked: "And every moment of the time ho was standing thero ho was planning to murder tho members of my family.' After this tirade, the aged woman sank almost exhausted. When she" re sumed talking it was in defenso of her daughter, Mrs. Hyde. "Frances is a dear, pure girl. 1 have never said anything against her," she said. "I love her and nono can say harm of her." Repeatedly Mrs. Swope's attorneys attempted to silence her. But sho was pouring out her soul and her adviseis wero unheeded. "Harrowing as this may be to me, T must tell it nil," sho said. "I must explain how T feel toward Hyde, and why I feel that way. It's my story and I will tell it all." Hyde Indicted Dr. I!. Clark Hyde, husband of tho niece of the lato Colonel Thomas IT. Swope, was indicted tonight on thir teen counts and eleven indictments by tho grand jury that has been investi gating the Swopo mystery for the last three weeks. Two indictments charge first degree murder in connection with tho deaths of Colonel Swopo and Chrisman Swope. One indictment accused Hyde of manslaughter by bleeding James Hun ton, a cousin of Swope, in a neglectful manner. Eight indictments were re turned in connection with the alleged poisoning of tho Swope family and vis itors and attaches of tho Swopo house hold. Hydo is accused of poisoning with typhoid germs, with intent to murder Margaret, Stella, Sarah and Lucy Swope, Nora Dickson, Georgia Comp ton, Mildred Fox and Lcnora Coppridge, a colored girl. All wero stricken with typhoid while Hydo was attending tho Swopo family. Three counts are contained in tho in dictment charging the poisoning ot Margaret. Tho first charges Hydo with attempted poison of her by typhoid germs. Tho second accused him of try ing to poison by giving a hypodermic injection December 12. Tn the third, he is alleged to have attempted poison ing by giving strychnino and other poisons. Hydo Receives News Hydo received tho news of the in dictments calmly. "I have just read that T had been indicted," ho said. "In the libel suit against John Paxton ho stated under oath that on December 20, 100!), before the slightest investigation was made and before an examination of any of tho bodies of tho dead had been made, that he concluded I was guilty of mur ders and attempts to murder others. I have just read the testimony of Mrs. Women Who Carried Anti-Liquor War Into the Halls of Congress.

N. Stevens and Miss Anna A. Gor don, president and honorary secretary, respectively, of the National Woman's Christian Temperance union. The anti-liquor light In Washington of Mrs. Stevens and Miss Gordon is an outgrowth nnd part of a movement bv tho union In the States. The two antl-Ilquor advocates have already spoken lu several largo cities of this country and will go abroad In May to attend the triennial world's convention of the union to be held In Glasgow June 4-11. Mrs. Stevens is the successor of Miss Frances Wlllard ns president of the union, becoming Its acting president In 1S0S 'after Miss Wlllard's death. Miss Gordon was Miss Wlllard's private secretary for twenty-one years. Logan Swope, taken toda', after more than two weeks of earnest effort on tho part of my attorneys, in which" sho says " she arrived at the same conclu sion at tho bamo tiino, likewise without investigation. "On January 12, 1010, Paxton wrote a letter to a co-executor, charging that all these terriblo crimes had been com mitted. Iu tho testimony of the first day ot ins deposition ho published a letter to tho world which declared 1 was guilty. The stain o nmy character can be removed in but one way, a fair in:u ueiore a jury in a court wliero I will bo represented and where mv vindication will be mafle complete and nnai. "I much regret tho fact of tho in dictment, but realize it to bo an in evitable and sure step toward my final exoneration. "I am absolutely innocent and know no harm can como to me. Those who know me best have assured mo of their staunch belief in my innocence, and 1 feel confident that those fellow citizens who do not know me will suspend judg ment until in an open and fair trial they will bo convinced of my inno cence." When tho trial of Hydo will begin is problematical. It may bo in a few days, if tho defenso is willing.
