The trial of the nine boys in the su perior court was highly sensational at the adjournment yesterday afternoon. Judge Burpee of the city court denied he procured bail for the boys or that !he had given any of them any. promise or even any hope of helping them out of the trouble. He believed Attorney Meigs was counsel for the trolley com pany in the cases in question. Him self had nothing to do with them, and to his knowledge the trolley company did not assist In getting 'ball for the boys, i Judge Burpee denied the identi ty of the bondsmen was kept from the public ,so far as he knew, but admitted that fear of publicity was one reason why, Mr Atwater, a 11 as "Mr Smith." of New Haven hesitated about giving ball for Quinn. Witness got Thorpe a joo at the ScovUl Manufacturing Co's, but after mV refusal to testify in the case against the strikers he was dismissed. He denied telling Mrs Thorpe that the best thing her boy could do was to tell alt on the witness stand. What he did fay was that he ought to tell the truth. ' In response to the court. Judge Burpee said lie gave tile statement he obtained from the boys to Attorney Meigs to give to Attorney Durant. : . Attorney Kennedy, testified .he saw a policeman in the ante-room in the city court with the boys, and it was big im pression -there was an officer on the outside also. Thomas Quinn was then sworn. He eaid'hia age is 19 years. On the even ing of his- arrest, March 30, Judge Bur pee, told, him in Chief .; Egan's office that, he would give "bail for him if be told the whole story. Two days before his arrest James Lunny drove to his house and told him lie was wanted in the City hall. Upon arriving at the ' City hall ' the place ' wa s in darkness; and Lunny pretended surprise, and they drove to Attorney ' Kellogg; s office. Judge Burpee was?. there and told him that if he did not tell all Wit nesses would be found' to tell 'it. and Quinn would go to Jail.. Detective Rog- era was there and said: "You'll sqiieal like a'stuck pig in a few days. You'll miss your, chance. They're all squealing."- Detective; Rogers made him promise silence or suffer arrest. He was there about two hours. The fol lowing Monday he was arrested, ant Judge, Burpee saw ibim In Chief Egan's nice. f lie told the judge he had notb: ing-to say: that hV kneW-nofchmg- about the assault and the Judge ordered him taken back -to bis cell. " A while later he was visited by Detective Dodds arid etlll later by Captain Baunon. and each of. them advised hlin to disclose what he was supposed to know. "About It o'clock Detective' Dodds entered, his cell and told him there was no use In his staying there a the others were gone.. Just then Judge Burpee entered and they went into the chief's office. Detective Dodds gave Judge Burpee a pencil and paper and once again- ad vised witness to tell all he knew. Wit ness; then told his story. Judge Bur pee said he would give bail for him anq he was thereupon released. There was no one in the station house but the officers and Judge Burpee at that time. As he was passing out Judge Burpee told him to stick to his story in court the. following morning and he would see him out of the scrape all right. lie knew Judge Burpee was judge of the fity . court and only he believed that he would get him out of the difficulty he would not have told his story. Next morning when he went to court Detec tive Dodds took him to-tbe ante-room fend advised him to stick to the story Jie nad toia jwige Burpee, and, expect ing the Judge would keep his promise, he went on the stand and testified. He wa( not sure about an officer being in the? ante-room because he was there only a few minutes.' ' To Attorney Kellogg. Quinn sa'd on cross-examination that Detective Doddg had written a line or two of his statement before Judge Burpee en tered Chief Egan's office: that Jurtge Peasley warned him In a low voice that he need not testify, so low' that ho scarcely heard him. - He repeated on the stand the story he had told Judge Burpee, and he how stated that was a true story. ? His reasons for refusing .to testify In the strikers' cases was that Judge Burpee had not kept his promise to him, because he was re arrested and spent a day or two in Jail. Mrs Thorpe, mother of Charles one of the prisoners, testified that vJurtge Burpee bsd-.to'd hr that if her bov testified he -would "get him out of it." She thought he had power to dp ro. 'She begged of her son to tell all h knew to Detective Rogers because of the promises made to her. Detective Dodds testified he was present when Quinn was released from the police station and lie did not ee anyone give bail for him. He did not know "John Smith" or "James Jones." He neither saw nor hea rd . of anybody giving -bail for Quinn. Judge Burpee was sent for by Quinn to make a statement to him. ' Dodds took him to the chief's office, where he bad begun his statement when Judge Burpee entered. He began with say ing, the statement- was voluntary on his parti He did not know of Dr O'Hara or John Dawson volunteering to give ball forj Quinn and were ad vised, ' not to, and he , denied , Quinn's tia.tement that he witness said , it would be better for him to make a clean breast and get out. : Witness advised him to tell the truth.': , . -.James Quinn.! the next witness, said he was not .allowed to. see his brother In ihe oek-up. Dr Crane told him he , wouli give bail, but later Dr Crane sent word that his club' would not stand fir anything' like that. : Joseph Kelly said he was inter- viewed by Judge Burpee, the night of his arrest, in Chief Egan's office, but he insisted he knew nothing about the case, after which h was returned to the lock-up. Later he made a con fession to Detective Dodds, who had told him that Thomas Quinn had made a statement. After making the state ment he was released. He did not know who gave bail , for him... Stephen Ball underwent a similar experience, and added that he asked Officer. Hickey to send word to hi-s grandmother to give bail for him and the officer refused. Next day he was taken to Attorney Dura nt's office and Mr Durant told him it was the strik ers, not they, the accused, they were after. He then -. made a statement and was released on his aunt'g bond, which had previously been refused. Michael J. Ryan told a similar story, with the additions that Judge Burpee told him to keep away from Attorney O'Neill, that he would not need a law yer The day of the trial in the city court witness and a few others of the accused h8d dinner in the police sta tion, furnished by the police. Martha McMahon. aunt of Ball, told of the trouble she was put to before she saw her nephew. William ' Costello was interviewed by Detective. Dodds and Judge Burpee in the. police station, but made no statement. Captain Bannon' denied advising Mrs B. A. O'Hara, wife of the doctor, not to give bail for Thom as Quinn. However, he refused to accept her bail, though Mrs O'Hara stated she was qualified. He did not recall seeing John Dawson, the furni ture dealer, in the police station the night the accused were arrested. -Witness released Kelly on a bond left either by Judge Burpee or ' Attorney Meigs, he could not say which. Judge Burpee then took the stand. He denied Quinn's statements about promises, inducements and threads, and also Kelly's evidence, in fact, the stories of all the accused in that par ticular. He admitted Ryan's testi mony, that be told him to keep away from the strikers and their counsel, but this was after the strikers were bound over, to the superior court. . He was quite certain be had no .conversa tion with James Kenny, Thorpe or Costello. He saw Costello, however, in Fred Browns office on Bank, street. He knew that Mr Brown desired to see Costello and he, himself admitted j be was very anxious to -get informa tion from the accused. ; He 'did. not . act as Judge of the city court in this case, but when be accepted bail he did so act. - Wheu he tried to secure in formation from the'' accused.

Regarding "John ; Smith.'7 Judg Burpee said he was mistaken in his evidence on the matter; was not Mr Atwater. He goltwo matters con fused. , - - Detective Dodds denied O'l.timi'.J! evi dence about advising him to make a statement or that Judge Burpee said he would get bail for-him: Whitty was the only one who made a state ment on the first request. Costello never made a statement of any kind. Those who made statements were re leased immediately after they were made. John Gbss of the Scovill Manufac turing Co testified that after a talk with Judge Burpee he gave Thorpe employment and that he quit of his own choice. Detective John W. Rogers then took the stand. It was his first public ftp pearance in the case. He testified he came here to investigate the Mendels sohn murder and the assault case. Tell ing of his interview with Thomas Kenny, he said he told Kenny that he i had evidence that he was in the Wnter ville assault case. Kenny denied it, but finally made a statement which witness wrote. Kenny read it, then signed it. No threats or pi-oniises were made. This was a day or so before arrests were made. Detective Rogers denied emphati cally that he offered threats or induce ments to either Thorpe or bis mother to have Stephen tell about, the assault. But Mi's Thorpe contradicted him. She faid be told her and ber son that the latter would be arrested unless he would tell and that if be would tell he would get out of the scrape. , He left j her and her son together for the pur pose' of letting her Induce him to tell. They were alone ten minutes, but still Thorpe refused to speak, whereupou Rigney took him by. the coat collar aud pushed him into the room, saying he would take care of him. They were alone three-quarters of an hour and when they appeared Rigney said he hud fixed him and made him speak. Thoi-pe then took the stand and cor roborated. his mother's testraony. He also said his statement was read to him by Detective Rogers in Attorney Kellogg's office and he signed it. He denied that. the. words "the above statement' is true and I sign it of my own free wiU'" were in it when he signed it, but afterwards, admitted that he did not remember. All of the accused in turn testified that promises and threats were made to them by Detective. Rogers to get them to make statements. .

Reed of the university to the student committee of the patrons of the din ing hall. Professor Reed says i "Of the eight hundred and odd men who take their meals at the dining hail, there are a few possibly as many as a dozen who make it a practice to throw food about at the different tables or on the floor. It is self evident that the overwhelming majority of, patrons of the hall is opposed V to throwing food, for , the average Yale man is a gentleman.' A small minority , should not have the power to !; niake Itself , a public nuisance.- It ig humiliating to invite an alumnus or some visitor from abroad to the hall and to be obliged to sit near some of the tables. When a man deliberately hurts the good name of Yale it Is time for radical action." After saying that th practice also has a demoralizing, effect on the wait ers, making them careless and sloven ly, Professor Ueed as an alumnus of the university, protests against "the attempts ot an insignificant , minority to degrade the ( finest dining hall In the country to the condition of a cheap and dirty Bowery restaurant." In conclusion he says, "Such men would not be tolerated for a moment at the table of a city club. . Why must we tolerate them at Yale?", The News says the communication has met with the unqualified approval of the committee to .which it was ad dressed, i .;;v v :r; JUMPED INTOJIUpSON RIVER Woman Whose Health Had Been ..

By that time arrange ments will have been made to accom modate all of them in the Crosby school building.
