"I sucizest very strongly." he said. "that those gentlemen bo brought inline diatcly before tho committee and re quired to make tlieir statements goou I draw very little distinction between the imtiuitv ot breaking tne eigne ami breaking the ninth commandment, 'Thou shalt not steal' is one, und 'Jhou shult not bear false witness against thy neighbor' is tho other, and any man who breaks either commandment is guil tv of infamy. "If .Mr. Ililles and Mr. jiiirtnoiut can prove their assertion, I want to know it. If they can't, they should not only be required to apologize, but tney should both of them immediately be driven out of public life. That kind of statement is an infamy unless it is absolutely DEATH ENDS SUFFERINGS based on fact. It is their duty to make the accusation if they know it to be true, and it is infamy to mako it if they don t know it to be true."

There was no evi dence introduced yesterday in Rutland county court in tho negligence case in which John W. Blanehard of this city is the plaintiff and tho Rutland Rail way, Light & Power company the de fendant, to show who gave the telephone message which was probably the cause of the fatal collision between a trolley passenger ear and electric express car near Castoleton Corners .May.O, VJlz, re sulting in the present suit and several others which are pending. This message was: All right, come on, and it as sured the crew of the express car wait ing at Ca-itlcton that the track wag clear for them to proceed to Castleton Corners to meet an eastbound passenger ear. It was between these two places that the cars met a few minutes later. Ernest R. Hall, messenger on the ex press car, was one of the most important witnesses. He testified that while at Castleton he saw Motorman George War ren go to the telephone and that thi! latter told him that word had been re ceived that the track was clear. At this time the express car bad about 12 min utes to spare before the oncoming pas senger car was due at the Corners. The running time of the express from Cas tleton to the Corners is five minutes. Motorman Warren testified that he telephoned as Mr. Hall stated and that the message: "All right, come on," came over the wire in a voice he thought he recognized as that of the man in charge of the sub-station at the Corners. He had no hesitation in starting ahead and there was no doubt in his mind as to the source of the message. One of the other suits which hinges on this ?ase is an action to recover $10,000 for the death of Karl C. Clark,! the motorman of the passenger ear in the collision.

Cards have been dis tributed mong the various churches, to be filled in by those willing to entertain! one or more of these delegates, but a large proportion of the delegates expect ed are as yet unprovided with places of entertainment. Will not all those who hnve not already volunteered to enter tain some of these delegates do so im mediately and " hand, or send .in, their namea to their pastor or the superinten dent of their Sunday school !

Defeated Their Undcr-brothers at Spaul- ding, 32 to 0, esterday. For the second time this week, the junior class of Spiinlding high school defeated the foot hall warriors of the scrub class at tho Spaulding campus on Camp street yesterday ufternoon, on this occasion the tables reading 32 to 0. Both classes showed improvement in form over the previous game, and the generals of both tennis were able to run their respective elevens with machine like regularity. The yearlings showed the result of hanl practice and, had they retained the services of W illey through out, the second year class would not have piled up as high a score. Jn the first period both sides gamed about the same number of yards, the winners crossing the line once. this touchdown was made by "Joe" Averill, the versatile right halfback of the jun iors, whose work has stood out prom inently in the series. Averill placed the ball behind the bars after skirting around the scrubs' left end fot 50 yaids. Levin secured a six-point count on a short dash after a series of plays that brought the ball within striking distance in the sec ond period. The linal periods" saw the older classmen wade through the fresh men for three touchdowns. lomasi, Levin and Averill made these points. The line-up of tho teams was ns fol lows: Juniors Cole. I. e.; Walker, r. t.j Spear, 1. g.; Broilerick, c; Carroll, r. g.; Connor, r. t.; Parker, r. e.; Tomasi, q. b.j Gordon, I. h. b.; Averill, r. h. b.; Levin, f. b. The scrubs Cowie, 1. e.; Davis, I. t.; McLean, 1. g.; Hale, c.j Carroll, r. g. ; Miles, r. t. ; Maiden, r. e. ; Sector, q. b.; Willev, r. h. b.; Prcstini, 1. h. b.; Bianchi, f. b. N. Brown acted as um pire and Capt. Langley acted as referee. Hooker and Sowles officiated as lines men. The series between the two lower classes has revealed some excellent "var sity" material, which under efficient guidance will develop for the regular team before the season closes. Jn Aver ill and Levin, the juniors have two prom ising candidates. Averill is a clever broken field runner and has an intuition for finding openings on tackle plays.

Audience Which Saw "Bought and Paid For" Last Evening. "Bought and Paid For," the problem play by George Broadhurst, was the of fering that pleased a rather large au dience in the opera bouse last night and gained for itself much strong applause because it differed somewhat radically from the usual run of such plays where the hero and heroine struggle against many obstacles for three acts, only to have the curtain fall on the two united and living happily. "Bought and Paid For," really begins after the marriajfi; and the husband and wife have lived to gether for at least to years. Therein lies the disparity and it was the difference probably, that won for "Bought and Paid For," its fair name. Jt dealt with a serious theme in a man ner that was never cynical or morbid. The tale is perhaps too ordinary to re peat, but its appeal last night rested in the brilliancy of its lines and the charming aptness of its actors. ,R. House l'eters, as Robert Stafford, the husband, injected incisive character into his acting and the role as interpreted by him was never overdrawn. Miss Helena De Kay, the wife, acted with an artist's keen insight into human na ture and quality in her acting was sel dom if ever wanting. William Carlyle as James Gilley, also a husband, toned the seriousness of the piece with a kind of slapstick humor that was contagious. The part of Fanny Blaine, his wife, was acted by Maude Allen, who carried the role with remarkable fidelity. The ap pearances of Ralph Simone, as Oku, were too infrequently, but the little Jap came around often enough to call the turn on some tensely serious situa tion by his delightful salutations and "excuse me's." The stage investiture lacked nothing as to detail and the set ting for the first act was one of the not able achievements of the presentation.
