EXPECTS MORE TESTIMONY LATER, When It Will Essay to Prore That the Ac cused Has lied Ahoat Bis Aaaoclatton nd Moramenta wKk aha Dead Girl Gaa ritter Swears Then Was No Gas Escap ing in the CHbreh at the Time of the order. SA5 Fbaxcisco, Sept. "3 The case of the prosecution in the trial of Theodore Durrant has closed. The day was spent 10 putting the finishing touches to the testi mony ajrainst the accused. Witnesses were summoned to strengthen the entire ense by filling in the weak places. The chief point which the prosecution sought to establish was that Dnrrant had said that the last time he had seen Miss La- mont was when he parted from her on the morning? of April 3, she going to school, ho to the Cooper mrdical college. In all his statements regarding the disappearance of Blanche Lamont the defendant stack to that declaration. Detective Anthony, who arrested Durrant, testified that Durrant had made the statement to him when re turning to the city after the arrest. - Expect to Prove Him a Liar. Dr. Thomas A. Vopel, a member of the Emanuel church, stated that Durrant had, to him, the Sunday after the disappear ance, made the same statement about the last time he had seen Blanche. The pros ecution expects to score a strong point by demonstrating to the jury that . the pris oner made f.ilse statements regarding his movements and associations with the girl he is charged with having mnrdctcd. The district attorney, it was said, will use this as a basis of on argument that- Currant's first statements were Inspired by a sinis ter motive. If he had nothing to hide, it is anrncd, ho would have told the truth about his last meeting with the pirL The Alleged Leah la the Gaa. William Stirling, a gas litter, explained the work ho performed in putting new tips on the gas burners. He said that on April 2 when Jio left the church no gas was escaping. On April 4 he returned to the church and no escaping gas was no ticed. Attorneys for the defense cross- examined tins witness nt length, the in tent ion being to show thnt an immense quantity of gas escaped while the rejiuirs were in progress, the object being to justi fy the assertion Durrant made that he was overcome by gas fumes in the belfry, Dr. C. K. Barnum, demonstrator ot anato my at Cooper medical college, testified that the blocks placed under the dead body of Blanche were laid in the same manner as under a subject in a dissecting room. Wliat Durrant Told PatrMge. Harry Patridgc, a fellow student of Durrant, swore that about a week after Blanche disappeared Durrant had told him the girl had either met with foul play or had been led astray. Professor Charles Sherstein and Organist Geoago H. King each denied writing his name on a slip of newspaper enclosing Miss Lamont s rings which were returned to Mrs. Noble, aunt of the dead girl. Allen Church, a formor janitor of Kuinnnel church, said Durrant had a key which would unlock all tho rooms in the interior of the church. The prosecution then rested and tho defense asked a continuance until today. Dur rant's attorneys will ask a few questions of several witnesses Who have already testified, and promise thereafter to proceed with the defense immediately. 1 V vAiJ PAII WAV DcrciucDe pcsinSi Oates, Payne and Rouse, of the Northern Pacinc, Tire of Strife.

"We will circle England with a wall of fire'" said the speaker, "that will never be extinguished until Ireland is free. We will not take the advice of anybody but ourselves and we will guide as wo pursue our own course. We have been asked what is tho cause of this movement - and why this meeting has been called. I will tell yon: . This new movement is to con solidate the Irish race the world over in a sensible aggressive movement against the British empire wherever we can strike her under the laws of the nations." : The speaker went on to say that Irish blood, warmed the hearts of 20,000,000 of people the world over; that there were more people ot Irish birth and lineage in the world over today than ever before, and tbey were a race that did not run out. The speech was one that clearly Indicated that the purpose of those of the Irish race who will be governed by the proceedings is to resort to physical force. SAYS A STRIKE IS BREWING.
