Jordan's Crime. The tight to save Chester S. Jordan from the electric chair was one of the hardest fought legal battles in the his tory of Massachusetts.

I.ivehmore is married to one of Jor dan's sisters. It was Livermore's money that caused the Somerville wife slayer to have such a long lease of life.

Jordan killed his wife, Honorah. on the night of Sept. 1, HM8. in their flat t 509 A Medford street, Somerville, He strangled her first, then struck her on the head four times with the point end of a flflat iron. They had quarreled juRt previously. The following day Jordan placed his wife's body in the kitchen set tubs and cut it up in thirteen pieces. In speaking of this later he said that he had in mind the Bible story in the 1 nth chap ter of Judges, which tells of the Levite who cut iip the body of his unfaithful wife in 12 pieces and distributed it to the 12 tribes of Israel. He said that he had this Bible story in mind. He placed the body in a trunk and in tended to throw it into the ocean from a New York boat. He was arrested through the keenness of a Boston cabby who noticed his queer actions.

Sept. 24. The first pre liminary skirmish in the fight to acquit Joseph J. Kttor and Auturo Giovannitti, Lawrence strike leaders, of the charge of being accessories to the murder of the Lawrence woman striker, Annie Lopizzo, took place here yesterday before Judge Joseph S. Quinn in the superior court. Attys. John P. S. Mahoney and George E. Koewer, Jr., and Judge James H. Fiak of Lynn, representing the ac cused labor leaders who have been in jail in Lawrence since their arrest on Jan. 30, yesterday began arguments on a motion for a hill of particulars. Henry C. Attwill, district attorney for Essex county, opposed the motion. Attorneys for the defense contended that their clients are entitled to the specific ac cusation against them, and that it will expedite the trial to have them at this .time. The real fight begins Monday, when the accused go to trial here. After asking for a bill of particulars in the. Kttor and Giovannitti cases, counsel for the defence asked for a bill containing specific charges against Joseph Caruso and Salvatore Scuito, who are charged with the actual killing of the Lopizzo woman. I. W. W. leaders from all over the country are flocking into Lawrence to day in order, according to reports, to make preparations for the calling of a wide general strike expressing the dis approval of laboring ihen toward the state's treatment of the two leaders. It is announced that a convention will be called at an early date, tomorrow night if possible, at which William D. Hay wood will be present, at which the final plans will be considered. Members of the I. W. W. will he kept informed of tbe progress of the trial, and Haywood and many of the other leaders will personally watfh the trial. John P. S. Mahoney, Ettor's chief at torney, said: "We are ready for the trial. That is all we can say at this time." Turn the rascals out the headache. the biliousness, the indigestion, the sick, sour stomach and foul gases turn them out to-night and keep them out with tascarets. Millions of men and women take a fa sea ret now and then and never know the misery caused bv a lazy liver clogged bowels or an upset stomach. Don't put in another day of distress. Let Cascarets cleanse and regulate your stomach; remove the sour, undigested and ' fermenting food and that misery making gas; take the excess bile from your liver and carrv out ot the system all the constipated waste matter and poison in the intestines and bowels, lima yon will feel great. A Cascaret to-night will surely straighten you out by morning. They work while you sleep. A 10-cent .box from any drug store means a clear head, sweet stomach and clean, healthy liver and bowel action for mouths. Children love to take Cascarets because they taste good never gripe or sicken.

Toronto wins the International league pennant. Joe Jackson of Cleveland has usurped Tris Speaker's place as second best hit ter in the American league. For a week or more Speaker has been falling down, getting less hits than his teammate, Gardner, in more times at the bat. For sliding around the paths, Myers, first baseman of the Spokane team .t the Northwestern league, has them all beaten, having stolen 118 bases this sea son and thereby establishing a new letigue record. The real fun of the American league s tiie close race between Washington and Philadelphia for the title of runner up, with the Law-makers leading by two and a half games. Wood of Boston feels a whole lot bet ter since he was relieved of the load of trying for a new pitcher's record of games won consecutively. In this con nection, it ought to be stated that the sporting writers scarcely do the right thing for a pitcher who is working along this line, because they constantly harp about it in their columns until they get the pitcher more on his nerve" than he would be if left alone. Constant specu lation on "Will he win his seventeenth?" or "Can he stand the strain?" is bound to get any twirler's goat, just as it got Marquard's and Walter Johnson's.

Charged with complicity in the so-called "dyna miting conspiracy." fifty-one men, pres ent or former officials of labor unions, are to appear for trial before Judge Al bert B. Anderson and a jury in the fed eral court of this district on October I. Indicted under a federal statute for bidding the transportation of explosives on passenger trains, the defendants are alleged to have been concerned in a na tion-wide plot to destroy the property of contractors employing nn-union iron workers, culminating in the explosion in the Los Angeles Times building, which cost twentv-one lives. Fifty-four were indicted bv the grand jury in its report of February 0 last, but of this number John J. and Jame B. McNamara are in San Quentin prison, California, and J. J. McCray, a former member of the executive board of the International Association of Bridge and Structural Ironworkers, has not been found bv the federal authorities. Most of the defendants are or have been connected with the ironworkers' association, which, since 190.5, has beet engaged in a struggle with the National Erectors' association, an organization of structural steel ana iron contractors em ploying non-union workmen, Members of "this employers' association suffered loss from nK-re than one hundred explo sions from llWi to 11)11. Following the arrest of John J. Mc Namara, secretary-treasurer of the iron workers' association, at its headquarters in this city, and the arrest of James U. McNamara and Ortie E. McManiga! in letroit, in connection with the Los An geles Times explosion, presentments were made to the federal grand jury of this district that officials of the iron workers' association and cither labor un ions had been concerned in a conspiracy to intimidate employers of unorganized labor by a systematic destruction of their property. Ortie McManigal's confession, in which ho related that he had been employed by the McNamara brothers and Herbert S. Hockin, acting secretary-treasurer of the ironworkers' association, to dynamite bridges and buildings in course of con struction by non-union contractors, was the haais of the governments inquiry, lie is to be the principal witness for the government in the forthcoming trial. A mass of leters and other records, seiied in a raid on the offices of the ironwork ers' association, also will be offered as evidence of a general conspiracy secretly to convey dynamite and nitro glycerine from coast to coast in a campaign against employers of unorganized iron workers. Most prominent among the defendants are Frank M. Ryan, president of the International Association of Bridge and Structural Ironworkers: Herbert 8. Hoc- kin, acting secretary-treasurer and the alleged bead of the "dynamiting crew j John T. Butler of ItutTalo, first vice president ; and Michael J. Young of Bos ton and Philip A. Cooley of New Or leans, members of the executive board. Business agents and secretaries of lo cal ironworkers' unions throughout the country, alleged to have been implicated in the illegal transiwirtation of explo sives from state to state, make up the greater part of the list of defendants, but officials of other unions also are in dicted. Thev are Olaf A. Tveitmoe, secretary of the Building Trades Council of California; William K. Benson, for mer president of the Deti lit Federation of Labor; Clarence E. Dowd, organizer for the International Association of Ma chinists; Hiram (i'line of Muncie, Ind., organizer for the Association of Car penters and Joiners; and Spnrgeon P. Meadows, business agent for the car penters and joiners' union of Indianap olis. I'nited States Senator John V. Kern is to be chief counsel for the defendants, and the government will be represented by District Attorney Charles W. Miller and his assistant, Clarence Nichols, who conducted the grand jury's investigation. A Veteran's Yarn By DANIEL CLAYBOURNE Hoskina' Great Cricket Feat.

Loi liiil Tplermnn The veterans of tbe civil war are getting old. -For half a century they hare been telling stories of their ex periences in the great struggle, which were literally true when the veterans first told them, but the old chaps have gradually forgotten much of Ujem, which they hare been obliged to supply by Invention. These invented parts, after much telling, hare gradually be come impressed on tbe minds of tbe story tellers" as truth. That the story shouldn't lose any of Its original in terest the invented parts hare been a trifle more Muncbauseny than the real parts. The consequence is that now and then a pretty lively yarn is got off by some old septuagenarian which he really believes to be true, but which has grown up in the way I have men tioned. This is one of them. "I was in at our victory at Chicka mauga," the Union veteran began when he was not beaded off. l thought we were knocked into a cocked bat at Chlckamauga," said a man only forty years old. "Mcbbc you was there and I wasn't," growled the veteran. "Heckon you wasn't born then, you kid. Well, as I was saying, I was at Chlckamauga, and if you don't believe me look at this stump of an arm. I was first lieu tenant of a battery, and the cap'n being killed, I succeeded to the com mand. "My battery was stationed with General Thomas' corps around a hill that withstood the whole of Bragg's army. "They were pumpln shot and shell into us and we was glvlu' it back to 'em when I began to be conscious of a number of mlnie bullets singln' about my ears. For a while I was so intent on hammerin' tbe Johnnies that I didn't think much about the waspy things, but suddenly it came to me that a sbarpahooter was tryin' to pick me off. "I tell you that wasn't a comforting surmise. Not by any means. The night before we had cut down all the trees in front of us in order to give sweep to our guns, and Just beyond the clearing was the edge of a wood, where the Confederates were at work on us. "I looked up at these green trees Just in time to see a little puff of smoke in the branches of one of 'em, and at tbe same moment a ball seemed to graze my ear. I put up my hand expectin' to feel blood, but I didn't; the ear was still there. "I had a telescopic pointer on my gun that bad been invented by a sci entific officer, and I thought I'd try and get that fellow with one of our percussion- shells. I bad to aim quick, for I knew he was reloading for an other shot. Fortunately one of the guns was Just ready to be fired and, laying tbe telescope on it. I sighted the gun. The glass enabled me to see the man inthe tree, and he bad Just rammed another bullet home when I got a bead on him and fired. "The smoke that followed prevented my seeing exactly where the shot struck, but I saw my man come tum bling down. The tree stood apparently unharmed. Whether tbe sharpshooter had been killed by my shot or dropped by the concussion of the shell striking the tree, I couldn't tell. What puzzled me was that I couldn't see any smoke from the explosion. "I soon forgot all about the matter in the work I was doln', but after the light I got curious about what bud dropped tbe man in the tree and what had become of the shell I bad fired at him. "I couldn't go to examine tbe place, for I was busy till we left the ground on which we had been fightiu'. Hut tbe thing troubled me, and I took the first opportunity after the close of the war to go down there and find out about it "That was about the time when they were laying out the National park, and I met a number of ex-Union and Confederate soldiers there. I found tbe tree I wanted to examine and as I approached it saw a man looking up at Its branches. When I reached him I naked him what he was lookln' for. He said that during the battle he waa up in the trf as a sharpshooter, and. see ing cn officer workin" a Union battery effectively, be had tried to pick him off. lie had fired and missed several times and was readv for anothecshot.when S8H8ttt You Can't Give a Coat Sweater a Job?

Vt. fttTtft M it he felt thi tree shake, he lost his bal ance and fell to the ground. He was badly shaken up, but that was all the damage he received. I asked him where the shell struck, but he said he didn't know. "I bad nn idea that it bad gone Into the ground at the roots of the tree. He seemed as much Interested in the mat ter ns I, and, picking up a rusty bayo net lying near, be began to poke it into the ground at the foot of the tree. The first thing I knew I saw the ground rise up, and the man who was pokln' was scattered to the finds with pieces tt iron, dirt and smoke.
