The Decker mur ' di'T c4o eliM-':-i ubruptly ;:eteruiiy aft- enioon vitli t'io ilistiii-t attorney, at i the court's command, reading into tlia 'recoida tho testimony from Becker's ' Mar witness Jack Sullivan, for the ad i mission of wliich Sullivan tstitioI be i foro. Sullivan's testimony directly swip ' ported tlio defense's contention that ltose, WebW, Vallon and Schepps, hud conspired in jail to send Hooker to the eluctrie chair by perjured testimony. ! Attorney Melntyre, Becker's counsel jnad declared the case rested when Sul- livan was called and refused to question j'him. The court ordered the case re j opened and instructed the district at i tornev to ask Sullivan certain questions ; timony. "Kose told me he, Webber, Vallon and Sehepps were going to frame up Beck er," Sullivan testified. "Webber said: "The only way you , can get out is to swear you saw hecker I with Hose and me a few hours after the I murder. If you don't you will 1ms in dicted and spend six months in jail. "Once Webber' said to me, 'Jack, for God' sake say you saw Meeker. If you ( wan t money, I'll give you $1,000 now and when you get out we'll go into the hotel business.' , Sullivan said he replied he would spend six years in jail rather than swear a , man's life away. Louis FJitt, another witness forced on .the stand testified: "Rose told me Deek- ,er had nothing to do with the murder, laying, 'lie is innocent, but Ive been I talking too much and must testify .against him. The state began its rebuttal at the opening of the afternoon session. Shapiro was called to the stand as tho , first witness in rebuttal for the state at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. "We will call only four or five wit nesses in rebuttal," explained Assistant District Attorney Kumn, "because the state's ease is so strong that no more , witnesses will be necessary to refute the defence. "I see no reason whatever for calling ' Becker," said Sir. Mclntyre, "because tlio state has not made out a case against him. The state has not corrob orated the testimony of the murderers, ! Kose, Webber and Vallon. Their only corroboration came from the convicts 'Italian and Luban." ' Today counsel will sum up and Justice Goff will charge the jury Thursday morning.

William Riddle of Pittsburg, superin tendent for the Lucius Construction com pany of Hellovun, Ph., was asked about two explosions that wrecked work of his company in Chicago, in l!K)7. Sor.ator Kern, for the defense, objected. "These dcfendni'.ts are indicted for transporting explosives on passenger cars and testimony of any explosion is Irrelevant," said Kern. "That is not the way this indictment is drawn, and the objection is over ruled," said Judge Anderson. "These de fendants are charged with conspiracy to violate the act against the interstate transportation of explosives, and any overt act in furtherance of that alleged conspiracy is relevant.

Campaign man agers arc revising plans and altering ar rangements for the closing of the presi dential campaign. Tho injury to Colo nel Roosevelt, the withdrawal of Gov eruor Wilson from the stump, and tlio fact that neither President Taft nor Vice President Sherman has taken part in tho active work of thu campaign havo ' resulted in changing plans in all three of the chief political camps. The ensuing two weeks will witness a con centration of activity in the sections where tho campaign managers believe the outlook is most favorable for the capture of disputed ground. Governor Johnsoii, ITogressive vice presidential candidate, is to fill in most of Colonel Roosevelt's proposed engagements in the cant, and the Democratic leaders are rushing a number of their chief speak ers into Pennsylvania and New York to take up the work planned originally for Governor Wilson. The Democratic campaign probably will center in Pennsylvania -from this time forth. A score of Democratic sen ators and congressmen, who have been peaking throughout the country, will be sent into the state this week, in the hope of making inroads on heretofore solid Republican ground. Democratic leaders have determined upon Colorado, Idaho, Aetiraska, Kansas, .Nevada and New Jersey as states where they will concentrate efforts to carry the state legislatures, in the hope of electing Democrats to succeed Republicans in the United Mates nenate. The Republican campaign also is to be quickened In the east, with a concen tration of forces in New York state. Secretary of State Knox is to deliver several speeches in eastern cities, includ ing Buffalo and New lork. It is expect ed that Senator Lodge and Secretary Meyer will join the Republican speaking force which already Includes Secretaries Nagel and Wilson. Former Congressman J. Adam Bede of Minnesota and John M. Harlan of Chicago, who followed Col onel Roosevelt throughout his entire western tour, will stump New England and eastern states until election. Colonel Roosevelt's arrival in New York from Chicago was not expected to alter Progressive plans. Senator Joeeph M. Dixon had determined to leave to the judgment of Colonel Roosevelt's doctors the question of his appearance Oct. 30 at the big Progressive rally at Madison Square Garden, New York; but Progres sive leaders were plainly hopeful that the candidate would be able to join Governor Johnson and Oscar 8. Straus in that' demonstration. Should he speak there, Governor Wilson will probably speak in the same hall at a Democratic rally the following night. Wisconsin, the original land of the Progressives, looks well for President Taft. Many influences tend in his di rection; among them the fiery feud be tween La Follette and Roosevelt. La Follette's vigorous attacks on Roose velt, who once declared he had no uee for "the pompadour senator," will turn votes to Taft, and the strife among the various kinds of Democrats will have similar effect. The real battle obviously Is betw,epn Taft and Wilson, although Schrank's shot at Roosevelt probably will add some votes to the colonel's column. This Likewise Must Be Accepted with Some Reserve There Ii Likely to He a Big Battle Soon, However. UNDER CROSS EXAMINATION. Officer Flynn Questioned by Attorneys for the Defense. ORDERS ARCHBOLD TO APPEAR. Supreme Court Takes Cognisance of Oil Man's Refusal to Testify. New York, Oct. 23. Unable to get John 1). Archbold, president of the Standard Oil company of New York, to take the witness stand in the pending federal proceedings involving the con trol of the Waters-Pierce Oil company of Missouri, counsel for these interest have secured an order in the state supreme court, directing Mr. Archbold to appear at the continued hearing before Com missioner Jacobs. 1 heso bearings are for the purpose of determining whether directors elected at a meeting of the Waters-Pierce company last February were legally chosen. "The petition upon which Justice Ford signed the order re cites that the Standard Oil "trust" did not comply with the United States su- j pre me court's decree directing dissolu tion except as it may have complied in j theory, and that there is a conspiracy on foot to gain control of the Wsters Pierce interests.

Flynn, of the Massachusetts' district police con tinued yesterday at the trial of Joseph Ettor, Arthur Giovannitti and Joeeph Caruso testimony which he began Mon day. He was turned over to the defense for cross examination. Inquiry was made as to a man named Scuite with a big stick in his hand who was said to have participated in the riot of January 29 in Lawrence and also as to the reported statement of Officer Be noit, who was injured in that riot, that the man who fired the shot that killed Anna Lopizzo carried a big stick. Flynn said that nothing was heard about a man with a big stick until two weeks after the riot. He did not know that Caruso secured work in four different mills and was discharged every time at the request of a detective agency. Neither had he any knowledge of a plan to drive Caruso from Lawrence and make him a fugitive. Caruso did not attempt to flee, and was at bis home after his indictment in April. scuite Is still at large, but searcn is being made for him, Flynn stated. Michael A. Moore, a Lawrence nolice- man, testified that he saw Ettor before davlight January 29, with a crowd of strikers when he and Officer Charles Wadlin arrested one of them for inter fering with some girl operative. "After Wadlin arrested this man, the crowd rushed around him," said Moore, "and I saw Ettor in a doorway beckon ing to some more f the strikers, i heard him say, 'Don't let the police take that man to the station; take him away from them.'" v "I shouted to Fttor 'You dirtv dago. why don't you take him away yourself. Don't have" these fellow do your dirty work.'" It ws shown later that Moire himself had a police record. London, Oct. 2.1. If the report be true that Servian and Bulgarian armies have formed a junction before Adrianople, mustering 325,(MK) men and HOO guns, the situation there is moNt perilous for tho Turks. It would seem hnrdlv possible that any such body of troops could be collected. at this point In so short a time. However, the Bulgarian army is well organized and capable of rapid con centration. Whether this can be said of the Servian establishment is open to question. Opposed to this allege over whelming force is suid to be 200,000 Turks with 300 guns,. But the Moslems are behind fortifications and are lust ditch fighters. There is little fear that i they will not render a good account of j themselves. Mories of Turkish troops fleeing in panic 'before all-conquering Balkan arms must be taken with a grain of salt. In spite of tho persistence of the rumor, it is doubtful if Kirk Kilisse has been "captured after a day of severe fighting with 20,000 prisoners, three months' food supplies and ammu nition enough to supply the army for some time." Kirk-Kilisse is but thirty two miles from Adrianople, and a report says that the victorious invaders pressed on, stormed the northern forts of Adri anople -and cut the communication be tween that city and the outside world. In other quarters minor Bulgarian col umns are developing an attack against the Salonica-Constantinoplo railway, which is onlv second in importance to the Adrianople-Constantinople line. Yet another column is marching down the Struma valley and, with the ld of the guerrilla chief Sandansky, is said to have inflicted heavy loss on a small Turkish force, south of the Servian frontier. The armies of Servia and Greece also con tinue to clear their wav to their main objective points, the Turkish fortresses of Ushub and Servia, the Inst of these a Turkish town on the Grecian frontier. Creek armies have crossed the Turkish frontier at two points. In Epirus, at the western end. they have occupied the heights of Girmbovo, while at tlie east ern end they are pursuing the Turkish troops to their base at Servia, where an important battle is expected to bj fought, and the taking of which by the Greeks would carry them appreciably nearer to the Monastir and Salonica road. The Servian armies are probably having the hardest fighting at the pres ent moment. They are operating toward Ushub and Pristina and further north in the district of Novipazar and have to contend not only against Turkish regu lars, but also against the Arnauts, who are fierce fighting Albanian tribesmen. One of their srmies have advanced .as far as the outskirts of Kumanova, the principal town between the Servian fron tier and Ushnb. Pristina, which was re ported to have been captured some days ago. Is still in the hands of the Turks, although the Servian invaders have se cured possession of the mountain pass leading to that city. A large Turkish force is marching on Kumanovo, and a decisive action in this quarter of the field cannot long be delayed. A telegram from Vienna says it is announced from Salonica that Zekki Pacha has concen trated 100,000 men at Kumanovo, with numerous artillery and machine guns. The Servians also have probably 100,000 men. The Greeks are reported in a tele gram from Athens to have Seited the island of Lemnos. near the mouth of the Dardanelles. The representatives of the powers continue actively to confer, and it is now suggested that inter vention in the Jtalkans might occur earlier than was hitherto thought prob able. It is generally believed, however, that one big buttle must be fought be fore the powers can take any decisive steps.

MOORE & OWENS BAR RE'S LEADING CLOTHIERS 122 North Main StreeJ Birre, Vermont Tel. 66- W fyfi Coj7n Schauncr FAMOUS THREE FOR 13 YEARS. y'agner, Dark and Leach Hard Com bination to Beat, When Pittsburg traded "Tommy" Leach and "Lefty" Leifield to the Chi cago Cubs for Artie Hofman and "King" Coie. one of the greatest of trios of base ball players known in history of the game wa forever broken. This trio was . composed of "Honus" Wagner, Fred Clarke and "Tommy" Leach, the "Big Three." It was formed 13 jears ago, when in the season of 181)1), "Tom my" Leach, a fast boy, was sent to play third base for the Louisville colonels, which team was then on the National league circuit. For 13 years thee great players hung together electrifying the j liu-ball world, winning four pennants ! and one world's championship. Probably no such trio ever played to gether as did the "mighty" Wagner, the great leader, Clarke and the fast, brainy Leach. After playing together in Louis ville one year the national league cir cuit was cut down to eight clubs, and Louisville was consolidated with Pitts burg ia 1900, and Fred Clarke was made manager. In 1901, 1902 and 1903 Pitts burg won the national league pennant. Iu 1908 Pittsburg lost in the world's championship series to the Boston Americans after winning three of the first four games. Clarke, at the bead of the peerless trio, kept on, and in 1900 again won the pennant and beat Detroit for the world's championship. Leach always batted be fore Clarke and Clarke before Wagner, and many a pitcher went out of the game broken-hearted through the hit ting and base running of the three. Pittsburg became known as a three man team through their great work. Rome idea of the heart-breaking pace led by these men can be had from the fact that 6,903 times they hit safely after coming to bat no more than 19,043 times. Of these 5,905 hits the total bases were 8,300, and 940 were two-baggers, 48ti three-baggers, and 155 times their clouts were good for the whole cir cuit. How they ran bases can be told no better than the record of 1,159 steals Democrats Think Their Campaign May "v . , , . . . 6 ' ; : These great players combined ban- WILSON FUND NOW $630,000.

Leach wound up his great Pitts burg career against St. Louis by send ing a fly to Evans in right field, but not until he had hit two singles and a three-base hit, helping "Marty" OToole win his game. It was a fitting end in Pittsburg for Leach, because 22,500 fans who watched him for years saw his career in a Pirate uniform come to a glorious close. As this multitude looked on, not a soul new that the Wee, who was responsible for six of the runs in that game, would no more drive men ahead of him and coach faltering Pirate runners. In 11 of the 13 years that Leach was with Pittsburg he made over 100 hits per year, while another year be made 92. In 1900 he was in only 45 games, msking 34 hit. SPORTING NOTES. him.

The Massachusetts Agricultural school football team was not in a gleeful mood on returning to practice this week over the treatment received at the hands of the Vermont eleven at Burlington Sat urday. They registered two protests. In the first place they insist that they were the victims of uncalled for cases of slugging towards the close of the game, claiming that the referee refuses to see any of these tactics. The other protest was in regard to the safety that gave the game to Vermont. Batting averages In the Connecticut league, which have just been officially announced are deplorably low this year. High of Hartford leads the lint with a percentage of .327. Swandcr of Spring- held is the only other regular man hit ting over .200. Capt. Ball of the cross country team at Dartmouth college showed his class at the intcrclass games Monday by capturing the three mile race from Har mon. In the interclass games occurred the unexpected defeat of Maro Wright and Enright in their respective entries, pole vaulting and high jumping. Reports are coming from Cambridge that Alfred Shrubb is developing a cross country team that is going to win the intercollegiate this spring. Coach Cavanaugh has made a change in his line up of the Dartmouth team this week that will greatly benefit the New Hampshire warriors. Whitney, the Olympic shot putter, who has been playing an end position and alternating at halfback, has been assigned to play left halfback regularly. Whitney is a horse for work, having the combined qualities of line plunging and open field running that give him preference for a backfield ranking. Hogsptt who has had a premium on this position all the year, is a versatile player and his ability at end is delighting the coaches. Hogsett's great speed enables him to be the first man down the field under kick and, is a hard and sure tackier. Earl Hamilton was far short of ex pectstions In the St. Loui city post season series. He failed to make a de cent start in any of the three games that he entered. Hamilton in the role of the St. Louis Browns won himself respect throughout the American league circuit this year through his remarkable work. HE SAW THINGS. SAVING A WORK OF ART. Ingenious Schem of a Restorer of Damsged Mastarpiece. An Instance of the Ingenuity exer cised by restorers of damaged master?... pieces of painting is afforded by the rescue of a famous painting now own ed by the widow of the late John Hay, secretary of state. Mr. Hay had a Madonna by Botticel li which wss pointed on a wooden panel at least 400 years ago. The wood bad begun to crack, and it was feared that tho painting would be ruined, but a restorer was found who laid he could save It - The first step was to paste thin strips of tissue paper on the face of the pic ture, pressing the paper into the un even surface of the paint Layers were added until a thick body of paper con cealed the picture. Then the picture was turned over, and the restorer began to sandpaper the board away. After many months of careful work he bad all the wood removed, and nothing but the paint ad hered to the paper. A piece of linen canvas Was then glued to the paint, and the work of removing the paper from the front of the picture was un-. dertaken. It required nearly a year to complete the work; but when it was done the painting was left In shape to last another four centuries. Chicago. Record-Herald GIBSON INDICTED.
