He spoke with the defend ants but they would not commit themselves. This closed the evidence nnd the court asked if the attorneys wished to make speeches. Neither Mr. Ho ton nor Mr. Armhehl arose from his seat.

Mr. Itryan visited New Yoik last week, and on the way home gave an interview as follows: 'They asked me alsmt Judge Parker," he said, "and I told them 1 could say nothing until I knew his attitude ou public questions.

"What do you think Hill intends to do 'Well I think Mr. Hill is tvss ing a penny to see whether he or Judge Pai ker w ill run.

Mr. ISi vim declined to discuss the probable issues and candidates in the next national campaign, but when asked to make a general statement as to the situation he said: "Political success depends ou two things, opportunity ami prep aration to take advantage of it.

The absurdity of the rumor seemed to impress no speculator; ami for the last four or live days iienny buying has been going on here at a great rate. Kmly last week Mr. Edwin IS.

He got the pennies at their real valuo and before the re port of the premium giving had become widespread. A day or so after his purchise Mr. Ureshsm sold lo Huggsge Agnnt Sotiner, of tho Southern Railway, ItilO pennies for $:i;l, and Sonnor stated that the next day he sold the pennies to a bank in Alexandria, a., at lo cents sniece. Mr. (iresham worked assiduous ly and collected many hundred other pennies, but he whs able to sell none of these at a profit. He still has on hand enough copner to make life si.e statues of both the mayor and the recorder. Mr. (ireslmru was not the only man who bought iicnnics in largo cpiaiilities.
