> not guilty. The work of chosing a jury was
concluded at noon. Counsel for the prose
cution then made the opening address, set
ting forth the chain of evidence on which
conviction will be asked.
One of the strongest points made by
counsel for the Crown was in reading a letter
liotn Burcheil to Colonel Benwell, which
lir3 not hitherto been published. in it
Burcheil says, In part: "He (Benwell)
lias decided to jriin me, as be has
lunnd all satisfactory. 1 think we
shall make a good business together.
The books show a good profit last year.
The best way i-: to place money in our joint
hands. Your son is, 1 think, writing by
this post." The letter also gave min
ute descriptions of how to send the
money, and said subsequent letters
would be type-written. Queen's conn-
Bel, Osier, said this plainly showed
the motive for the inurd-r, us Oulonel Ben
well was to pay £500 if his son became satis
ic 1 with tin- 'farm. Osier also claimed it
was liurcbell's tcr.euje to send type-written
letters to Colonel Benwell as coming from
lii, son and to bleed the father.
The first witness was William McDonald,
who said HuicU-ll came to him as a firm
•'■. pupil, being then known as If, A. Somerset.
BUe stopped at JlcDonnld's farm one day,
and 11.1:11 went to Woodstock, saying thai
ho was nut tquiuglit mi to such work.
McDonald's evidence threw considerable
new light on the pupil-farming business.
He admitted that he was the agent at Wood
stock for Ford, Rat u bun & Co. of England,
who sent pupil- to place en farms, the
former getting 5125 bonus and the agent 54.".
Mi Donald contradict iiimself a good deal.
Douglass Raymond Pelley, a young Ens
ltshtuaii who accompanied the Burcbell-
E Be n well paity to this country, testilied to his
arrangements with Borcbell to enter into a
f" farmer partners hip in Canada. Burcheil told
" him he had a farm near Niagara Falls of 300
acres, and lived in good style, etc. He sfoke
1. 1 McDonald as his overseer. Pelley Mild
Burchell told him that Benwell was a nuis
once, and that he would put him on sonic
farm Mid get rid of him. Benwell dis
played much money in New York. '1 he

the murder and Burundi's reappeatance

A Satisfactory Site Secured for
the World's Fair.
The Entire Sooth Park System of Chicago
to Be Used.
The Whole Exposition to Be Placed in
One Compact and Central Portion
of the City.
Special Dispatches to Tun Morniso Call.
Chicago, Sept. 22.— The South Park Com
missioners this morning ucceded to iho re
quest of the National Commissioners to
nllow tlie use Of Washinuten Tark for the
World's Fair, in addition to Jackson lark
and Midway Plalsance. This practically
settles the vexed site question to the satis
faction of the National Commission.
At the opening of the session this morning
the commission passed resolutions of regret
at the death of Governor Stevenson of
At 3:45 this afternoon the National Com
mission voted to accept the amended site as
tendered by the local board. The site in
cludes Washington and Jackson parks and
Midway Plaisance, connecting them and
the lake front Park, in all about 1000 acres,
in a sense the chosen site, is one of great
merit, comprising as it does the entire South
Park system of Chicago— the finest of auy
in the city. The enthusiasm with which
the tender was received by the National
Commission showed in marked contrast
with the reception of the previous proposi
tions. Uy a resolution adopted early in the
day the National Commission had formally
pledged itself to regard th; ■ oiler of such site
as a final settlement of all questions
relating to the kite, and when the Park
Commissioners promptly responded and
the exact location of the bis exposition was
at last finally fixed, there was an outburst of
cheers. Stepping from the doors of the
city's railroad depots, hotels and business
houses, visitors to the World's Fair ill,' as
it were, enter directly the vestibule, of the
expo-iti'.ia on the lake front. This "lake
front" is a ship of park comprising sixty
acres, bordering the shore of Lake Michigan.
Leading from it the finest boulevard of the
city goes directly to Washington Park, and
connecting with the latter is Midway Plals
ancp, which entli in Jackson Park. One
side of Jackson Park is washed by the
waves of Lake Michigan. The greater por
tion of the situ is one vast network of
pleasure drives, inclosing great stretches
of meadow and trove* of oak. ' Ad
joining Washington Park Is a race
tract, capable of accommodating 50,000
people, and this the local Directors expect
to make part, also, of the site, for the pur
pose of speed displays and the live-stock
show. This improved track, where the
live-Stock show will be made, is within 100
yards of Mm point selected fir the main
building, thus placing the wholo fair in one
compact quarter of the city, Including the
Government display and th« displays to be
made by the various States in conjunction
with the main exposition buildings. The
site selected and plan of buildings proposed
is generally regarded as calculated to be
especially gratifying to the live-stock men
of the country. There is great rejoicing
in Chicago to-night by all classes over the
final settlement of the site controversy iv a
way that gives satisfaction.
A FORTUNE AT STAKE.
A. Fatal Street Fi^ht Between Brotherj-in-Inw
Chicago, Sept. To-n:ght a fatal street
affray between brothers-in-law ended a re
markable contest for the possession
of a fortune of 8100,000. Alfred
Richner, several years ago, was hus
band of a noted woman. Notwith
standing this and his unsavory record
Ricnner sneceeeded in clandestinely working
himself into the good graces of a daughter
of a wealthy flunr and iced dealer nuned
Kessler. U] on Kessler's death, the daughter,
who seems to have been somewhat simple
minded, disclosed her attachment for
Richner. The instant opposition of tho
family to any recognition of that worthy
resulted in a prompt elopement of tun
couple to Montreal. Ricliuer later went
through the form of obtaining c from
the noted woman and having his marriage
with Miss Kessler legalized. They then
returned to Chicago, and a feud was soon
engendered between Richner and his now
vies brother. .The latter Accused Kicbnei
of Ix'ing actuated solely with a desire to lay
hands on the fortune of his sister. Legal
struggles and persona] encounters between
Richner and young Kesslei have been fre
quent. Recently, it is alleged, Richner, fail
ing in bis efforts to get at Kessler's patri
mony, has threatened to kill every member
of the family. To-night he met young Kessler
on State street nnd attacked him with a
cane. Kessler drew a revolver and filed
several sluts Into Richner's body, indicting
fatal injuries. Kessler gave himself up,
and said he had been advised to arm him
self by the city Chief of Detectives and his
attorney, General John C. Black. The af
fray took place in a crowded part of fc'tatu
street and for a short time created a wild

The clause of the Tariff Bill relating to the

sidered informally by the Conference Com

the provision relating to the fortification of
sweet wines for domestic use will be re
tained, though it seems likely that Califor
nia will nave to sacrifice that part of it re
lating to the fortification of sweet wines for
foreign exportation, thereby Imposing a
duly on fortified wines, which have been
•hipped abroad and imported into this
country again, heavier than the present in

THE TARIFF CONFERENCE.
Debate on Ih; Repcrt l. Ba Opened Wednesday
Washington, Sept 22.— At a late hour
to-night it whs the confident expectation
of t!io Republican coiifcrrces on the Tariff
Bill that Wednesday, or Thursday nt the
latest, will witness the opening debate on
tho conference report. While three dis
puted questions of the most importance,
sugar, binding twine and steel duties, are
not settled, yet the conferrees are near
enough to warrant them in saying they had
no doubt some basis of agreement would be
readied to-monow. The bonding period
about which there has been fo much talk
bus been definitely settled for February Ist.
There is, it it thought, good reason to pre
dict that the free sugar standard will be
placed at thirteen and not at sixteen, as pro
posed by the House; that a compromise gen
erally favorable to the House rates will be
the outcome of tlio dispute over various
items in the metal schedule and that bind-
Ing twine also will De the subject of a com
promise. Southern Republican Congress
men have adopted resolutions declaring it
essential to the interests of their constituents
that t ho lax on tobacco should bo loft as
fixed by the House.
Savcral Calendar Bills Disposed of -The United

Washington, Sept. 22.— Tho Senate

the State of California on certain conditions
by on act of Juno 30, lHtH— tho Yoseinito
Valley and Mariposa His Tree grant— has
been spoliated or otherwise diverted from
the public usu contemplated by the grant.
The joint resolution proposing an amend
ment to the Constitution in relation to
the manufacture, importation, exportation,
transportation and sala of slconoße liquors
was re.u'lifd and Uluir called for a vote
Cockrell asked that the committee reports
be read, and tho reading occupying what
was left of the hour assigned to the calen
dar, no vote was taken on the resolution.
The Senate then resumed consideration
oi the bill to define and regulate tho jur.s
diction of courts of the United States, the.
pending question being on Daniels'amend
ment extending the jurisdiction of the Su
preme Court. It was rejected.
Vest offered a .substitute for the bill pro
posing three divisions of the Supreme
Court of three Judges each, tho Chief Jus
tice to make assignments to these divisions;
that all linal decisions of these divUions be
considered by the court in bank and shall
require the concurrence of live Justices.
Vest did not insist on a vote on his
amendment and the bill was reported from
the Committee of the Whole to the Senate,
which went into executive session and ad
journed without disposing of it.

Disagreement as to How a Mar

Samuel Goldberg visited Xellie Panhorst
at her residence, 113 Fair Oaks street, about
12 o'clock last night and received a bullet in

The young man was removed to the City
and County Hospital, where it was found
that his wound was entirely too serious to
piobe. The young woman who did the
snooting is quite young and tieautiful. She
was taken into custody by Sergeant Pricj
and Officers Tompkins and J. W. Uawes
of the Mission I'o'iiee.
When slin arrived at the Seventeenth
street .Station no amount of questioning
could get her to tell the story of the shoot
ing. On being removed to the Central Sta
tion she simply sobbed and said, "1 did it; I
did it, and 1 would do it again."
Further investigation by a Cat.i, repre
sentative disclosed the fact that Goldberg
is a peddler of jewelry and lottery
tickets, and that he lived at 727% McAllister
During the past few months he had been
paying his addresses to the young lady, and
finally proposed marriage.
To this she did not object; hut insisted
that the ceremony should be performed in
the presence of friends and in accordance
with the law of the land and the commonly
recognized custom. He objected and in
sisted that the union should be effected by a
Miss l'anliorst then submitted the matter
to her step-father. Captain Kneson, who
sided with the young lady, and forbade
Goldberg the privilege of visiiing the house.
This restriction he disregarded, and con
tinued to tannt the young woman with his
visits and threats, lie declared that if slie
did not marry him, as he desired, he would
kill her and take his ovfn life. She was in
constant fear of being killed, and her stej>
father deemed it necessary to leave Ins pistol
With her for self-protection. Goldbeiy was
warned, but did not heed it.
When be called last night he found tlie
bouse cii sed against him, but he managed
to effect an entrance and was confronted by
the young woman. What occurred is known
only to (inldbpru and Miss Panl.or-t, and
neither would ii-fl, but the fact r«*hat there
was a -!.ot from a firearm and Gulubert; was
found in tbe house wuuude-l.
The officers were summoned and he was
taken to the City and County Hospital and
the fair shooter was placed under arrc-t.
The pistol used was a Smith & Wesson, and
from the direction of the shot tiieie is rea
son to believe that it will prove fatal.
Even while lying on his probable death
bed Goldberg refuses to tell how the shoot
ing occurred, and the details are held back
in the Mine manner by the fair shooter.

Mizner Should Have Referred the Matter
to the State Department.
New York, Sept. 22. -Commenting on the
Herald's quotations from Mizuer's report,
the Tribune says: While, his interpretation
of international law was unquestionably
correct, so far as he conceded local jurisdic
tion over a merchant steamer in a Giiate
nielan port, there were safeguards for avert
ing bloodshed and securing a deliberate re
view of the case whicb ought to have
l>een provided. Tho correspondence
shows that the Minister was fully aware
of tlie political nature of th* offanaea with
which Bammdla was charged. The Minis
ter seems to nave overlooked the fact that
Mexico and the United States between them
were virtually surrendering a political of
fender. Certainly such a surrender ought
not to nave been made with indecent haste,
nor without obtaining ad quute guarantees
for his protection, or at le.ist f.ir averting
a sanguinary c inflict on the steamer.
An Interrelation ol the law of nation?,
which would have answered the ordinary
requirements of nn undoubted exercHe of
police rights in port, would not suffice for
this case, with its exceptional features. The
Guatarnalan authorities had prevailed op v
Mexico to expel a I olitieal offender and plan'
him on board an American steamer buiin I
for their ports. His arrest when be reached
one of thos« ports seemed to involve ilia
United Sta'es in au Irregular method of.
facilitating extradition fr. m Mexico of ono
cliarceil with political crimes. The Minis
ter might properly have brought these fmts
before the attention of the Guatemalan Gov
ernment without in any way questioning
the right of local jurisdiction. It
was a case which oujht to havo
been referred to tho State Department
and pending the decision of his superiors
the Minister would havo been Justified In
taking Barrnndia under the protection ot
the American ilatr, either at his own resi
dence or on board one of the United Stales
men-of-war lying in the, harbor. The Min
ister, while reporting all these feet*
frankly to the department, seems to havo
entirely overlooked their significance.
The Commercial Advertiser says on tlio
principles of law Mizner is clearly right m

ment, presents a most emergent subject for
inquiry. His case is regarded as standing
in an exceedingly favorable Bght upon thu
facts so far as they are kunivu.
