Field man sion at No. 1 Lexington aVenue. and the other a stone chateau at Tuxedo, which have been gathering plaoes of the ultra fashionable for years. As the Stock ex thvnge was closed today the announcement of the failure could not be reflected in market conditions.

Mr. Tafl was accompanied by Mrs. Taft and the three children and Mr. and Mrs. John Hays Hammond and their two sons. Two hours were occupied In the trip over. News that the president-elect would go over the line preceded the special and there was lively Interest manlfestsd by the rcsldnts of th several villages passed. Crowds wers ont, torpedoes were laid along the track that the car might fire Its own salute, and cheers were shouted. At Bath, which boasts of one of the oldest cotton mills of the south, the car hatted and Mr. Taft complimented the mill operators on their Industry and progress. At Aiken the people were somewhat dis appointed not to see more of their' dis tinguished visitor. They expected hlra to stop In town, but his car went through to ths terminus, where he took an automo bile to cover the mile an a half to the club. It was past noon when he began his golf and 6 o'clock when the home trip commenced. Meantime the party were driven over the Wi C. Whitney estate, and lunched at the Wilcox house. Mr. Taft got back just in time for dinner tonight and met a number of prominent Georgia INVITED ON BEAT, ESTATE DEAL WkUe There Bight of Annls Prove Castala Halas Mso Oseslsg Statement ef Lawyers Made. FLUSHING, la. I., Dec f.-That the trip of Thornton J. Halns and his brother, Peter C. Hams, Jr.. last August to the Bayslde Tacht club, where William K. Annls was killed, came about through the Invitation of an old-time friend and the Journey was not, therefore, taken with th design of taking the life of Annls, Is the declaration made today by Lawyer Joseph W. Shay In the outlining of the defense of Thornton J. Halns, charged with his brother with the murder of Annls. The name of the friend, who will be called to testify that on the afternoon ot August U he Invited the Halns brothers to Bayslde, where they went to look over some property near the Tacht club, was not given. The defendants' counsel In his opening statement started to relate the unfortunate details of Csptaln Halns mari tal troubles, whlclu. Mr. Shay declared, caused the mind of the army captain to become unbalanced. On objection of Dis trict Attorney Darrln Justice Crane ruled any statement of what Annls did, whether true of false, was not admissible. Judge Crane said counsel might relate whatever was told to Captain Halns or ths defendant With ths ruling. Mr. Shay re cited all of the alleged acts of Mrs. Halns, which, Mr. Bhey declared, she had told her husband on his return from the Philippines. Merely Protected Brother. Declaration was made by Mr. Shay that It was the club members who called Thornton Halns' attention to Mr. Annls In his boat and counsel said that before the defendant could Induce his brother to leave the dock Captain Halns rushed to the float and shot Annls to death. The defendant, believing his brother In danger of his life from John Tonnlng, the boatman, and the club mem bers, warned them off with his revolver, said ci unset. Justice Crane, 'In denying the motion by defendant's counsel to dismiss the Indict ment, after District Attorney Darrln an nounced today that the stats rested, ruled that a defendant might be held guilty as a principal even though the man who did the shooting was Inaans. The court further ruled that a defendant would be 'guilty as a principal who aided or Induced an Insane man to commit a murder. Only two witnesses had been called for the defense when Justice Crane adjourned court until Monday. Talks oi Teeth Now Year Now Tooth Good resolutions are in order. A ery food start for the new year would be a complete set of teeth, by means ot the Alveolar Method. By "complete"' we mean that the missing teeth be replaced, the gaps In the line filled, so you can begin 1909 with the fall complement of teeth, ths new being go nearly a counterpart of Nature's teeth that even the one wearing them would have to look twice to tell which was which. Alveolar teeth ate put In the mouth In such a way that they not only look natural but act natural. We follow the natural or Nature's plan as closely as possible, but do not bore or cut Into the gums to accom plish our purpose. There Is nothing "just the same as" or "similar to" the Alveolar Method, which is original with this company, although certain unscrupulous den tists wouia nave you uuna so.it ueir advertisements are to be believed.

C NEW HAVEN, Conn., Deo. 16. An elec tion court to Inquire Into ths campaign and election expenses of Congressman and Governor-elect George L.

The Judges are Silas A, Robinson and W. L. Bennett of the su perior court. The sitting of this court Is of exceptional Interest not alone to poli ticians, but to ths legal fraternity, as It is claimed that this Is ths first election court to be set up In this country. At the November election Mr. Lllley was opposed by a faction in bis own party, and the strength or this antagonism Is shown by the fact that while Judge Taft oarrled CUTTING .CHRISTMAS TREES Chief Forester Plaehot Says Damns; " i to Forests from This Castona ts Iaalgalfleant. WASHINGTON, Dec. 26. The nation's forests this year supplied 4,000.000 Christmas trees, the forestry service estimating that one out of every four families observed the tree custom at Tuletlde. Gtfford Plnchot, United States forester, upholds the Christ mas tree custom and believes It should be maintained. "The number of trees cut this year," he said, "Is Insignificant when com pared to the consumption for other pur poses for which Umber is demanded. This clearing of an area equal to a good slsed farm should not be the subject of much worry, when It Is remembered that for lumber alone It 1s necessary to take timbers from an area of more than 100,000 acres every day o fthe year. It Is true that there has been some damage to forest growths In the cutting of Christmas trees In various sections of the country, particularly in the Adlrondacks and parts of New England, but throughout these sections the damage Is small when compared with the loss of forests through careless methods ot lum berlng. Germany has the highest developed sys tem ot forest management In the world, al though its per capita use of Christmas trees is greatest. In this country ths foresters predlot that the Christmas tree business will become a recognised Industry and that as much attention' will be given It Is Is now devoted to growing of crops of tim ber Xor other uses.

Ky., Dec. . The Jury the case of Beach Hargts, charged with ths murder of his fsther, Judge James Hargia this afternoon reported their inability to agree and were discharged. The jury sto'Hl nine for acquittal and three for conviction. IRVINE, Ky., Dec 2. Beach Hargls had been on a debauch a few days before the time of the murder of Judge Hargls. For soma days, the neighbors declared. Judge Hfcrgls had been dragging the boy through the streets of the wild little mountain town. As told In the trial. Beach entered his father's store and after a few -words with the judge engaged m sv grapple with htm. They fell to the floor. Beach on top, and with the Judge's own pistol the boy fired several shots tn ths body ot the prostrate man. The defense, ons of the lawyers of which was United States Senator-elecJ. W. Bradley, former governor of Kentucky, based Its strength on ths testimony of the boy and that of his mother. Mrs. Hargts testified that the judge had early taught the boy bad habits and when Beach was a child, had given htm wMsky and buckled a gun on his hip. The boy Is 23 years old. The only other Hargls child Is Mrs. Evelyn Hogg of Jackson, who married one of the bitterest of Judge Hargls' political and family enemies. Judge Hargts was admittedly as much a baron In Breathitt county as was sver any medieval lord. His henchmen occupied all the county offices. Hs was himself demo cratlo committeeman and was the chairman of all of the district conventions. ' Men rose up to question his ruls, and to make personal attacks on him and these men were suddenly done away with. The Maroums, the head of which family walked the streets of Jackson for months with a baby In Ms arms to avert his final as sassination; the Cockrllls and others dis puted the sceptre of the feudal king and paid the penalty with, their Uvea. This summary and violent rule bred the school of murder and bad men, who gave to their county ths world known title of "bloody Breathitt." One of them, Curt Jett, called by his picturesquely speaking neighbors the "Wild Dog of Breathitt," Is serving a life sentence in the state prison; some arc dead and others have fled the state or are living quietly since the death of their chieftain. , One of the strange incidents about the 4ath of ths feud lord was his purchase ot a casket tn Louisville a week before his death. He saw a silver-handled coffin valued at 11,100 which took his eye and he ordered It. DETAILS OF MAYOR'S DEATH Kmeeatlve ef Sheridan, Wye- In Demented Condition When Wan dered from City. SHERIDAN.
