MfnxeapoLIS, Feb. 27. Attorney Hall,
of the counsel for tha prosecution, was
the cross examiner of Harry HaywarJ,
there being sickness in Nye's family.
The questions appeared to be asked with
the view of contradiction on rebuttal.
One question was whether tha morning
after a fire bad burned a flour mill at
llaniel, Harry and Miss Ging did not
drivo out. Miss Ging being interested in
the mill because of a loan sho had made.
Hurry said no. The gambling habits of
the witness were gone into f reely,and Har
ry said the heaviest loss ho ever had at
one sitting was (1.700 at the Twin City
Athletic club. The hold-up story was
again gone into. Hall used lnnendo to
6how Hint it was Harry who was the
prime mover in that affair.
Cross-Examination Close Snddeana-y
In fact he asked him if he had norbld
Adry once that he had planned it, that a
song was to be the signal, but that the
man who did it was such a bungler that
the women had time to hide P:clr money
and valuables. Harry denied it point
blank. He admitted that he did not want
the matter reported to the polite, but that
was on Adry's account. Hs had kept the
watch out of sight for months, so that
Adry's wife might not see it and thus
wonder how he got it after it had been
stolen from him. This closed the cross
examination. There waft a tilt between
the attorneys when the hold-up story was
in progress. Hall asked where Miss
Yedtlcr was and Krwln stated that she had
left tho city and was in Iotra. Hall
rather hinted that the dt-frnse hod spir
ited her away, but Krwin said he wanted
her and bad sent for her to come home
and lie on hand to testify. Hall stated
that he wanted her very badly also.
Trying- to Impeach. Wilwa's Testlmoay.
M. 1). Wilson "the man who swore that
he saw Harry Hay ward and Miss Ging in
a bugey together the evening of tho mur
der, but whoso testimony was in opposi'
tion to Ixjtli sides, the state refusing to
call him because ho refused to say what
lie knew until ho was in the stand and
the defense calling him without knowing
what he would swear to), was called again
by tho defense and Krwin proceed-d to
try to impeach his own witness. Hail
objected, but Krwin had authorities and
the court allowed the questions. Hu was
asked if to knew James Ward. Wilson
did not remember him and ho was exhib
ited from his scat in tho audience. Then
Wilson remembered him. Krwin linked
if the witness hod not told Ward that
Adry was the man who was riding with
Miss Ging nt tho time Wilson met them
near Lymlald nvenuo and Hennepin. Wil
son denied it llntly.

He was asked if ho knew K f. Dan

so, because he left tho city the day of the
murder and was gone for three weeks.
As I) niforth was not present to fix tho
time again the witness was asked tocomo

SOME CONTRADICTORY TESTIMONY.

Itark and the other Cannot.
Harold C. Stevens was put on the stand.
He swore that on the night of the murder
he, in company with a friend, was coming
from tho Lake of the Isles to Lake Cal
houn on a cross-road, aud they saw a
butrgy with the top up coming along at a
brisk gait from tho lake toward town. He
looked in it closely, and saw a man sit
ting In the middle of tho bugry who had
a light mustache and beard. The witness
stated that ho saw a young couple on
Liake street, and lie and his companion
walked on the side of the street where
there was no sidewalk He knew the
young man whom Miss Brown suited was
with her at that time, but stated that he
did not recognize him, although he passed

The court put in a question which made
It ;appear strange that he could seethe
man in tho rig and note his features when
he could not rccognizo one of his own
friends. H. Percy Ilrown, his compan

the rig than his friend and noticed It par
ticularly. The light from an electric
light shown upon it, but the curtains and
top to the rig so darkened the interior
that he could not see the man's face. The
picture on his mind was that of tho light
shining on a pair of taut lines. Ho could
not even see the man's hand, it was so
dark in the buggy. He could not say
what kind of a buggy it was nor describe

The Ex-Friest. Life Threatened at So
SaXasnaii, Ga.t Feb. 2". Last
night was the most exciting one in
the history of Savannah. For fire
hoars the city trembled on the verge
of religions riots. The entire white
military force of the city except the
artillery wa9 on duty. There were
10 infantry companies and the
Georgia Hussars, the latter being
dismounted. A mob estimated at
from 3,000 to 5,000. the greater be.
ing Catholics, challenged their for
bearance to the extreme. All the
windows in the hall were broken.
and but for the coolness of Major
Meyers and the ofliccrs commanding
the troops, blood might have been
tho result. Kayonet charges were
made several "times to clear the
streets, but the mob which had gath
ered about Masonic temple, one of
the prominent bmidings of the city,
and situated in the heart of Savan
nah, stubbornly refused to retire.
Several policemen were badly in
jured, and a number of the militia
were wounded by being struck with

they hope that there will be times when

Bond Issues House Passes a Labor Ar.
nitration Bill nnd the Senate Agrees tn
Washington, Feb. 27. Routine mat
ters on the floor of the house were over
shadowed in interest by the initiation of a
brisk movement to secure a majority of
the Democratic memliership In favor of a
financial policy having the free coinage of
silver for its keynote. For some time
there has been a discussion carried on by
the free silver leaders of tho party ove'
the practicability of a plan to unite their
forces nnd to crystallize their ideas into
some sort of a platform or declaration.
Ths net result has been the draft of an
address "to the Democrats of the United
States" and outlining a financial policy
for the Democratic party. This paper has
been circulated on the Democratic sido of
the house and is being vigorously dis
cussed with the object of obtaining the
consensus of opinion of silver Democrats
upon its expression.
Bland ami ltryan the Leaders.
The chief instigators of ths movement
are island and Bryan, Sibley of Pennsyl
vania and Colleen of Wyoming. Their
pa; er is at present but n tentative ex
pression, they say, and not yet in form
for publication, simo none of its details
has been airreed upon. In substance it
states the financial policy of tho party
to be for the free coinage of gold nnd sil
ver on terms of equality at the ratio of ltt
t.rI, for the issue of all paper money by
the government without the intervention
of banks, and opposition to any issue of
interest bearing bonds without the au
thority of m special act of congress. At
tencioii is culled to a movement said to
be under way through the efforts of tho
opponents of free silver in the party to
secure the election of gold men as dele-gai-s
to party conventions, and particu
larly to the next national convention for
the nomination of a single gold-standard
man for the presidency.
The I'latlorw l'p for Amendment.
Democrats are urged to oppose the move
ment and to see to it that none but free
silver men are elected to positions of in
fluence in the party and to represent them
in all conventions. If support of a ma
jority of the party in congress can be
pledged to n linuucial platform it is in
tended to issue the manifesto to tho Dem
ocrats of the United Suites within a few
days. At present the declaration is in a
formative stage, Uryan says, and it is in
tended to secure the views of mcmlicrs
aud make such changes in it as the ma
jority of them may dictate. There is a
pos-iuility that they may not be able to
air ce upon any form of address, because
considerable diversity of opinion has (lo
ve oped already upon tho details of the
STEER CLEAR OF EASTERN MEN.
PopQlits Also Ignored on the Oroind
That They Are nure. Anyhow.
But fewcasitrn members have been ap

Representative Davis, of Kansas, who
is a prominent Pupuiist, says that the

Bryan uls o mode an incomplete canvass
of the silver Democrats in the senate. He
did not present any prepared declaration

make, but merely submitted to them the
question of the advisability of such a

things that a joint meeting of tho silver
Democrats in the two houses he held be

the matter. It is understood that while
many of tho Democratic senators ex

that it strnck them favorably upon first

Washington. Feb. 27. The senate has
given another day to the sundry civil ap
propriation bill without completing it and
without taking up the vital point con
cerning financial legislation. The im
portant feature of the day was a short,
hharp and decisive contest on the sugar
bounty question, resulting in the success
of those advocating the payment of the
bounty prematurely cut off ly the enact
ment of the tariff law. The proposed
bounty aggregates io,:aJ0,0U0, as stated in
the amendments adopted, but Mitchell
gave it as his belief that it would reach
fa,0O,0CO A point of order was made
against the amendment, but the senate
voted it In order to I'd.
After thct the success of the boun
ty proposition was assured, although ef
forts were made to load it down with free
silver amendments and other proposi
tions. In the course of the debate Gor
man warned the senate that this bounty
; proposition would add to existing defi
ciencies which, be said, would reach tod,
000. WO for the present year. The final
vote on the bounty proposition showed
i the friends of the amendment very strong,
I and ther carried the amendment easily
36 to 25. The nay Tote was as ioliows:
Bate, Berry, Brice, Cary, Clark, Cockrcll,
(Joke, Frye, Gallinger, Irorman, Hans
brough, Harris, Hoar, Lodge, McLaarin,
Mills, Palmer, Peffer, Pettigrew. Power,
Teller, Turpie. Vest, Wilson of Washing
The house adopted a special order nndet
which the day, until 3:3d p. in., was given
to the committee on labor. Most of the
time was occupied in the consideratlor
arid passage of the bill providing for a
board of conciliation and arbitration (in
case conciliation failed) to mediate and
settle differences between common car
riers and their employes. A bill was also
passed to provido for the publication of
the bulletins of the department of labor.
This conciliation bill is the ono that has
txeen made over out of the bill presented
by Attorney General Olney some time
ago and printed in these dispatches. The
bill does not provide "compulsory" arbi
tration, but after conciliation has failed
if the parties agree to arbitrate under tho
law the decision of the arbitrators can be
enforced by a United States court. When
It was suggested that a railway company
was responsible while a labor union was
irresponsible, it was explained that "em
ployes are to bo treated as far as possible
as incorporated bodies." It passed tho
house without a vote.
Why Be Vetoes n Pension llill.
Washington, Feb. 87. Tho president
has sent to the house a message vetoing
the bill to grant a pension to Eunice Put
man, the daughter of John Putman, who
served in the lute war. "Tho report of
the committee to whom this bill was re
ferred," says the president, "states that
no claim for a pension on account of this
soldier's death has ever been filed in the
pension bureau. In point of fact tho
widow has already been pensioned and In
such pension allowance has been made
for the minor children. If this bill should
become a law two full pensions would
be iu force at the same time ono to the
widow and another to the daughter
each predicated upon the services and
death of the same soldier."
