that he murdeied Blanche Lamout and

After two days devoted to the hv.arliiK
of the defense the trial adjourned at
noon today until next Tuesday. In the
meantime, however, the defense h.ul
disclosed enough to satisfy the prosecu
tion that Durran't nttornes are group
ing In the dark In the hope thnt xomu
thing may develop within the next few
days to save the prisoner's life.
The weeklies of the defense Is made
more apparent nt this time on account
of the extravagant assertions that Dur
rani's attorneys have uniformly made
since the trlul began.
When the prosecution was engaged In
putting In Its case and the situation look
ed darkest for the young Sunday school
superintendent, Attorney Deiiprcy w'as
accustomed to,snay his lingers and re
mark that he hml no fears for the future
of his client.
"We will clear him In three minute,"
said Deuprey. ''and the public will be nt
n loss to understand how Durrant'n
name wns ever connected with tho
WHAT DKUPUHY CLAlMim
The same line of extravagant claim
was continued when Attorney Deuprey
made his opening ppeech for the de
fense. "Not only will the prisoner tell you
with his own lips the Mmplc story of his
life on the day Blanche 7.;mont was
murdered." said Duuprey, but Dr.
Cheney will tell you thnt Duirant was
at Cooper Medical college nt the very
hour when the mm tier of Dlauqhe L-i-mont
Is said to have taken place. Up
sides that we will piove to you that
Durrant never tried to pawn Miss Li
inont's ring nt Oppenhelm's store. On
thp contrary we will bring forward tho
young man who did to' to pawn a ling
at Oppenmelm's similar to tho one worn
by Miss Lnmont."
In view of these startling statements
It was nrst belleyed that the defense
might have a strong case held In re
serve which Avould put to a severe test
the case of the prosecution. In one
day, however, tho case of thu defensp
crumbled and fell of Its own weight nnd

GAS FITTEI15 HXAMINDD.
If further proof yero needed of the
belief thnt Hie defen.se has little to off
er In refutation of the case put forward
by the prosecution,. )t was furnished
today. Instead of 'placing witnesses
on the stand to tpstlfy to some material
fact In connection with Durrant's al
leged alibi, two gas -fitters were called
to testify -with regardUo the sun burn
ers In the gallery ot JZmanucl church.
For two bourn theJcroud wan bored
and the Jury made tired by a long se
ries of questions mijltniiHwcrs lelatlve
to Jhe minutest parfof the construc
tion or nun burners Not once dur
ing the entire sessloiiwas the name of
Ulanche Lament motttlonod, nor was
cnythlng said to Indicate that It was
not a suit to collectjfa plumbers bill.
Instead of a mutder tllal that was be
fore the court. Thqj'evldcnt purpose
of the examination, however, was to
show that the repairing of the sun
burners would necessarily result In the
escape or a great deal of gas. This
testimony will be used f substantiate
Durrant's statement that he was suf
fering from partial asphyxiation when
he came down from, the church belfry
trembling and 'flushed and met Organ
ist King In the audltoilum.
A significant fputuie of the testimony
of the two gas litters was the fact that
each testified that he made an examin
ation of the sun burneis In KmsMiue!
chutch on September 21. The prosecu
tion Interprets this to mean that the
defense had nothing upon which to
Kise a case until the case of the people
was neatly complete. Only when con
fronted by the actual necessity of op
ening Us case It is believed that the
defense made an attempt to secure
witnesses to testify with regard to the
condition of the sun burners.
The apparant hopelessness of hi case
low ever, produced no change In the de
meanor of Durrant. Day after day he
sits In the court room "beside his father
nnd mother and listens to the evidence
against him without a sign of emotion
Thl stoicism of the prisoner Is only
rurnassed by that of his mother. Mrs.
Durrant seems to have no conception v
ot the gravity or her son s tuition.
Attlied In waving plumes and a tailor
made gown such as a lady might near
at a matinee, she laughs and chats
with her friends, while tho evidence
that the prosecution believes will hang
her son Is being put In against him.
To frenuenteis of the court room Mrs.
Durants conduct is almost as unfath
omable as -that If her son. Durrant's

was that It occuned after the Midway

Maud Steldel, who mysteriously dis

The ftelnds of the families of the

that only mad Infatuation for the priest
now charged with having Induced
Maud Steldel to leave her home, could
have been the cause of her disappear

Dallas. Tex.. Sept. !& Whlla tho gov",
ernor's call tor u special session of tho
legislature requesting that body to pass
a law prohibiting prize fights, was not
entirely a surprise, yet It had tho. effect
of starting afresh public dlcusjlom.
The governor's supporters were Jubljant
nnd regard a law to take Immediate ef
fect as a certainty. The Opplsltlon
maintain that tho required two-thirds
of the members of the legislature will
not be secured for nn Immediate net
but do not doubt that a lnw wlli-bs
passed to take effect In ninety tlnys.
While taking this view, the opposition
are wondeilng what the governor will
do next If u law to take immediate ef
fect Is not passed. The question on nil
sides Is wl,l the governor lest his case
on legislative action. Conservative
opinion Insists that two of the threo
branches of the government, the Judi
cial and legislative, should and will set
tie the matter. The Judicial has spok
en and the legislative will he heard from
by October 4.
President Stuart of the Flnilda Ath
letic club maintains his usual business
attitude and rests, us ho has nhvayn
done, on the legal advice of his attor
neys that he Is proceeding under the
law. He says tonight: "When satis
fied that the laws of Texas guaranteed
protection to Its citizens who Invest
their money In entei prises not prohibit
ed by law, tho contract for the building
was awarded, and the building Is now
half completed. Contracts Involving
over a million feet of lumber and a hun
dred other obligations have been enter
ed Into and I believe a fair minded and
upright legislature will do Justice to all
alike, avoiding anything like a confisca
tion or Interference with contracts with
a high Judicial decision ns a guide."
The Galveston-Dallas News concludes
an editorial on the situation In these
words: "And now It Is to be noped that
the legislature will at last bring tho
problem to some Indubitable, effective
and salutary conclusion. In accom
