NEW TORK, Nov. 10. The fs'e of Ro land B. Molineux will be determined to morrow if tLe case goes to the Jury In the afternoon, as at prnrat iMmi certain. The court rn crowded to suffocation ib'0 at the opening of today's session Mr. Black rose to sum up for the defense. After a brief defense of Molineux he quickly passed to a scathing denunclndon of Harry Corntsb, to whose iruilt and not to that of Molineux, he declared, every point In the rase pointed. More than half of Mr. Black's address, which occupied nearly four hours, was devoted to as attempt to show that Cor nlsh a art loos were not consistent with his Innocence of the crime.. Mr. Osborne based bis argument for the prosecution largely on the testimony of the handwriting experta, which, be said, conclusively showed Molineux to have been (he writer of the poison package address and of the other disputed exhibits. An hour before the official time of open ing the court a crowd of more than 1.004 thronged the corridors of the criminal building and clamored for admission. A special squad of policemen waa on duty and the visitors were formed Into lines four deep and compelled to abow their cards of admission. At least 70 per cent were women and Kost of them had cards from the Jurors or t orn the lawyers in the case, or from at taches of the district attorney's office. As a consequence before 1:30 every seat was occupied, the reporters' tables were over whelmed, chairs blocked the aisle and In tLe paasageway between the Justice's ciamber and the bench were about twenty women. Contrary to general expectations, the pro ceedings did not open with the appeal of ex-Govarnor Black for a dismissal of the tharges against the act-used. That was the scheduled program, but for some reason or o'her a change was made and Assistant Zrtstrlct Attorney Osborne called out: "Is Mr. Eveal here?" A voice replied that be as and at Mr. Osborne's Invitation Mr. Eveal walked to the wltneaa chair. Farther Teatlaaaay la Kse laded. Ex-Governor Black protested that ' the ease was closed 'ia -far aa the taking of testimony was concerned, and the counsel for tae defense and prosecution had a Song whispered conference with Justice Lambert a t th Insdvlsablllty of the testimony. Eveal did not testify and that summing op of counsel waa begun. "It was a crime to murder Mrs. Adams." declared Mr. Black, for the defense, "but It would be no less a crime to murder this man upon the evidence In this case. Tou are asked to believe that bo man can get cyaalde of mercury unless he approaches It with a mask. and. in fact, the prosecution asks you to believe that it caa only be got in Newark. If you want It you caa get it. It any of you want cyanide cf mercury, get it when you go to lunch, fir. If you have not time, I'll get you enough to poison every man within the sound of my voice and it shall not cost you more than 35 cents " Coming to the connection of Cornish with the case. Mr. Black declared that he waa not arguing for the punishment of anyone, but he felt It hia duty to present tba whole case to the Jury as he himself saw It. "There was a crime and there was a mo tive." he said, "aad the motive points to Harry S. Cornish." Mr. Black recited from the records the atory of Cornish's divorce, hia meeting with Mrs. Rogers, them separated from her hus band, and her lata divorce. Mrs. Adams, Mrs. Rogers' mother, waa a good woman. Mr. Black said. "Do you think she looked with complaisance oa the conditions that prevailed ? "There la motive, the great consuming motive for crime la all things. The motive Cornish had againat the llftj of Mrs. Adams compared to the motive Molineux had againat the life of Cornish waa as the vol cano of Martinique to the lapping of waves against the atatue of liberty la our own harbor." Mr, Black called attention to the evi dence given that the purchaser of the bot tle holder la which the poison was sent aald he wanted the holder to match the silver oa a woman's toilet table, and from that he argued that the purchaser knew tr-e pattern of Mrs. Rogers' silver. He also revelwed th testimony of Koch, the letter box man, who said the renter of th private box wore a brown overcoat. . Cornish denied while oa th stand that he bad any overcoat that winter, but Mr, Black read from the last trial to snow tnat ha had on and that It was brown. Teatlaausay mt Mr. Steakeas. Cornish, who was la court, appeared to be little concerned by Mr. Black's liite of argument. Once or twice when hia name waa mentioned he laughed a load. Ex-Governor Black touched .I.ghtly oa th testimony given by Mrs. Stspheaeon aad argued that extraordinary as It ap peared, and fantastic aa Mr. Osborne may tail It. everything she said waa within th bounds of possibility. Hs reminded the ww that It me in th. n---... ttoa and not to say questions from the defease, that Mrs. Stephrnsoa partially Identified Corulah as th man whom she saw la the posiofflcs. Proceeding.

Mr. Balfour said that waterless wastes snd fanatics were always difficult problems to deal with, but that the Somaliland que -lion was not of grave Importance In the national existence except aa It brought Into "high relief the friendly feelings of Italy toward Great Britain." The premier congratulated Lord Inns- aowne on ine commercial treaty witn CTiina ... - . . . . . . k . ana the Japanese alliance. He said he be- , lieved that every great power In Europe ws. not only desirous of peace, but firmly i resolved that peace ahould be maintained, i He deprecated International prejudices of sny kind, especially the anti-English feel ing on the continent over the Boer war, as endangering the concert of Europe, "which In the past has been a great in strument of pesce. and which is destined to play an even greater part In the prog ress of the civilization of Christendom than It has during the years recently elapsed." Today for the first time In the history of London the lord mayor's procession tra versed the unfashionable thoroughfares of Petticoat lane. In the heart of the ghetto, in recognition of the Jewish ancestry of Sir Marcus Samuel, the new lord mayor. Jewish London especially celebrated the event. The poorest Inhabitants of White I Chspel and Hounds' Ditch were banqueted st the expense of their wealthier . co-re-Ugionists. The quaint annual progress of the rhirf executive of the city through the streets of the metropolis was probably more bril liant than usual. Seven richly decorated floats and fifteen bands representing crack reg'aoents, together with the city officials, and the London guild, made up a goodly pageant. A unique feature was a float representa tive of the Anglo-Japanese alliance, sur mounted by the arms of both countries and surrounded by a guard of Japanese and British blue iackets. The nroresBion left the Guild ball at 11. traversed the principal streets of the old city of London to the law courts, where, according to custom, the lord mayor was formally presented to the lord chief justice and was sworn in.

Extension to rural carriers of power to re.-elve and register letters have proved so acceptable to public benefit that It la pro aosed to further increase their usefulness by adding an extension of the money order system to rural routes. Rural carriers are bow empowered to give receipts for money orders. It Is Intended, after the 1st of Jan nary to empower them also to pay such orders at the residences of known patrons of the routes.

Nov. 10 The new East river bridge In process of construction be tween New York and Brooklyn was dam aged to at least the extent of $..AO.nflo by the fire that raxed 255 feet In the air oq the summit of the great steel tower In the New Tork sld. Owing to the enormous height of the tower it was Impossible to reach the top by any apparatus, and the flames after de vouring all the woodwork seized the tim ber falsework of the two foot-bridges sus pended from the main cables, burning away the supports until nearly a million feet of blazing lumber fell with a mighty splash snd hiss Into the s'ream. The fall of the foot bridge carried away scores of the lighter rsbles and guys, which trailed In the water, rendering it necessary for the police to stop all traffic up and down the river. The Fall River steamer Puritan and several craft had narrow es capes while running the gauntlet of fiery brands that fell in showers from the burn ing bridge. The fire started in a tool shed and spread to the great timber framework. Within five minutes after the discovery the whole top of the tower wss in a blaze. Then the foot bridges fell, carrying with them many tons of bolts, rivets, nut and tools. At thst moment the Brooklyn fireboat waa just below th bridge and a heavy steel beam fell on It, breaking its rudder and sending it drifting, helpless, down the stream. Sound steamers and all other up river navigation waa stopped. Daniel Brophy and his brother John of Montreal. A. P. McBrlde and an unidenti fied man were at work on the tower when the fire started. While they were helping the firemen to haul up the hose the frame work on which they stood collapsed and the two Brophys and the unidentified man were hurled Into the river. McBrlde saved himself by catching a piece of projecting steelwork. While the fire was at Its height a party of firemen were cut off at the base of the tower, where they were exposed to a tor rent of brands and red-hot pieces of steel. They were rescued after several had been severely burned. Brands from the tower set fire to the big storehouse of the Pennsylvania Steel com pany on the bridge. It waa entirely con sumed and the content were hurled into the river, together with two hoisting der ricks on the pisiform. It Waa 11 o'clock before the flames had devoured everything combustible, leaving only the steel tower and the four great eighteen and a half Inch ateel cables stretching across the river. These cables were recently com pleted, save for the steel sheathing, and it Is feared that they have been badly damaged by the Intense heat. Should It be necessary to replace then, (he labor of two year wwrld be lost. - " " -' YALE ENGAGES ENGLISHMAN Makes Vrmt. Tkansa of Caas kridge First Sllllsaaa Leetsrer. NEW HAVEN, Conn..
