Wholesale Denier* nml tin* SiiRar Trust llave a Scliciiie. Chicago, Sept. 20.—Some of the big retail grocers and department stores in this city have unearthed what is said to be the strongest combination ever formed to control the price of sugar. It is said that the wholesale grocers have nearly perfected an ar rangement with the Sugar Trust known as the factor plan or modified equality plan by which retail grocers and department stores will be cut off. Several of tlie retail and de|inrlment stores have already been notified by the agents of the trust that they will not sell any more sugar on a 'parity R'ith the wholesale grocers. It is said that the combination has been in prog ress of formation for the pas', two months. The plan proposed is that the grocers are to act simply as factois for the trust, forwarding to it within thirty days afler the receipt of goods the amoiil of the invoice less 1 per cent trade discount on 100 barrel lots, with the right to deduct 1 per cent additional if the forwarding of cash is made in seven days. The dealer is nut to be permitted to s.\l sugar either directly or indirectly at less than the rate book prices of the trust. Arlington, lie- Iter husband. MISTOOK A SIGNAL.

For weeks past Si's lor Williams, who lias been conduct ing a girl's directory under the aus pices of Archbishop Cross, has been the object of bitter attacks through the press by Father Kelly of Heaver ton. The reverend father denounced her as a fraud, and offered to produce evidence that she was not a full flcdi.ed Sister aci'ording to the canon of the Catholic church, and further more. that she was not worthy of the confidence bestowed on her by the people of Portland and Oregon. The archbishop ordered Father Iv-lly to cease his persecution and to go into re treat and repent. This the reverend gentleman refused to do, and he was unfrocked, lie maintained that his suspension was irregular and demand ed a rehearing. Failing to obtain this lie quietly left for Washington to lav the matter liefore Mgr. Satolli. Jl'e left Tuesday night, on the Fnion Pa cific train. The archbishop disap peared the next day.

If Theo dore Durrani has anything tangible iipon which to base his denial of the •barge thai he murdered I'.lanehe l.a iuolit and Minnie Williams, his al lorneys have failed to give satisfac tory evidence of the fact. 'I lie de fense has disclosed enough to satisfy the prosecution that Durrani's at torneys are groping in the dark in the hope that something may develop within the ncxl few days to save the prisoner's life. The veakness of the defense is made more apparent at this time on account of the extravagant as sertions that Durrani's attorneys have uniformly .nade since ihe trial began. When the prosecution was engaged in putting in its ease, and the situation looked darkest for the young Sunday school superintendent. Attorney Du prey was accustomed to snap his lingers and remark that he had no fears for Ihe future of his client. "We will clear him in three min utes." said Diiprev. "and the public will be at a loss to uuderslaud how Durrani's name was over connected with Ihe ease."' The same line of ex travagant claims was continued when Attorney Duprey made his opening speech for the defense. "Not only will Ihe prisoner tell with his own lips the simplest story of ITis life on tin? day that ISIaiielie l.amont was murdered." said Duprey. "but Dr. Cheney will tell jmi that Durrani was •it Coo|ier Medical institute at the very hour when the murder of Klanche l.a mont is said to have taken place. 15e -ides that, we will prove to you that Durrani never tried to pawn Miss l.a mont's ring at Oppenheim's store. On ihe contrary, we will bring forward the young man who did try to pawn a ring at oppenheim's similar to the one worn by Miss I.anioiit." In view of these startling statements it was lirst believed that the defense might have a strong case held in re serve, which would put to a severe test the ease of the prosecution. In one day. however, the ease of the de "ense crumbled and fell of its own weight, and lo-dav Durrant's alibi has not a leg upon which to stand. Dt^ Cheney, who was expected to tell so much for the defense, was a sireu.:i witness for the prosecution. Instead of fulfilling Duprey's statement, and swearing thai Durrant attended a lec ture at Cooper medical college oil April •'i. he said lie had no recollection of seeing Ihe young medical student there. The denial dllli.founded the (Te fense. If further proof were needed on the belief that tile defense litis little to of fer in refutation of the case put for ward by the prosecution it was fur nished to-d-iy. Instead of placing wit nesses on the stand to testify to some material fact in connection with Dur rant's alibi, two gas filters were called to testify with regard to the sun burn ers in the gallery of Kinanuel church. For two hours the crowd was bored and the jury made tired by a long series of questions and answers rela tive to the minutest part of the con struction of the sun burner. Not once tltiring the entire session was the name of Iilanehe l.amont mentioned, nor was anything said to indicate that it was not a suit to collect a plumber's bill instead of a murder trial that was before the court. The evident purpose of the examination, however, was to show that the repairing of sun burn ers would necessarily result in tile es cape of a great deal of gas. This testimony will be used to substantiate Durrant's statement that he was suf lering from partial asphyxiation when he came down from the church belfry trembling nml (lushed and met Or ganist King in tie- auditorium.
