America’s Educational Advantages Must Make Her a Great Factor in Solution of International Disputes. CHICAGO, June 19.—“ I do not believe the man "Who tells me that trade relations and business exigency will prevent future wars among the civùlized nations. It is intellect that will stop them, and intellect alone. Kducation makes for .peace more than all the business In the world.” Ambassador Jules Cainbon of France made this statement to-night at a banquet given in his honor at the Chicago Club, at Which he had listened to a eulogistic toast praising him for his services in conducting the negotiations that led up to the treaty which ended the Spanish-American war. M. Cambon discussed many interesting Bubjects, principal among which were his horror of war and the best means of avoiding it. “I am not disclosing any State secret,” he continued, " when I say that my experiences among the diplomats of many lands has strengthened the belief I have always held that arbitration boards, not swayed by business or sèntiment, but by intellect alone, must of a surety bring about a peaceful solution of the most difficult questions. The educational advantages that 'America possesses and that are constantly leading her along the path of intellect must make her a great factor in the con-Bervation of the peace of the world. “ I leave for Francé on a vacation next month, and will then present a report to my Government advocating the further combination of the branches of the Alliance Française with American universities. The time has come when the two great republics of the world should know each other better. I still find among your people the idea that Farls Is France. You must get that im- Ïiression out of your heads. We prefer to urn some of the tide of the American student travel to Europe away from German universities and toward our own. I do not depreciate the wonderful educational advantages of Germany, but we want Americans to realize that for the artistic, the philosophical, and the natural, they must turn to France.’ M. Cambon will leave here to-morrow on a trip to'Sault Ste. Marie, and from there W'lll return to Washington. WANTS UNIVERSAL PEACE. ' Edward Everett Hale Favors a Court to Settle International Disputes. COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 19.—Edward Everett Hale delivered the annual address at the Ohio State University Commencement to-day. His subject was “ The Duties of the New Century,” Among other things, he said: ' “Will the twentieth century see the American Indian, the negro, the Asiatic, and white races living as one nation between the Atlantic and Pacific? How shall the black and white races be brought In accord and harmony? As the children of God, if we choo.se to elect this duty, we have the power to effect this ünlon of the races, arid our Anglo-Saxon blood will assert Itself in a union of one people, with a love for freedom. “ The accomplishment of this ideal requires permanent peace among the nations of the world. The nations of the world must agree to submit all their disputes to one supreme court, or the follies of the last sixteen hundred years will be continued. Educated people give too little attention to the two hundred years of peace iearly In. the Christian era, for to that we ow’e the civilization of to-day. It is the duty and opportunity of the young people of the country to-day to bring about universal -peace.” CHICAGO’S RICH TAX DODGEES. Board of .4tsBeHsorfi Will Try to Compel Them to Pay Proper Amonnts. Special to The New York Times. CHICAGO. June 19.—The Board of As Bessors Is preparing to compel rich tax dodgers to pay reasonable levies on the property owned here by them. Like some of their kind in other cities, these persons claim the neighboring suburbs as their residences, and file schedules for only nominal amounts for property here. The Assessors believe that the city is annually cheated out of many hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes by this means. The rich men who own homes around Lake Geneva, Wis., are almost without exception heavy property holders here, but many of them claim the Summer resort as their place of residence. Others lay claim to New York, Washington, Joliet, and many other places as their homes, and repudiate Chicago except as a place in which to accumulate money. As a consequence of this, the tax lists fall far short of what they should represent, and the Board of Assessors believes that it can induce the Grand Jury to compel these men to do their duty. The same matter has engaged the attention of assessors before, but with little result. ( HEXICO’S TARIFF BEPOAX. Bnty on Horsen and Mules to be Removed on July 1. Special to The New York Times.

Special to The New York Times. HELENA, Mont., June 19.-A protest against the pardon of Little Whirlwind, now confined In the Deer Lodge Penitentiary as a convicted murderer, was filed today with the State Board of ^Pardons by Joseph T. Brown, a Custer County rancher. He says Stanley, alias “Whirlwind,” Spotted Hak,” “ Little Whirlwind,” and a fourth Indian had killed a steer belonging to a white man anu were cutting it up when Hoover, who was a hunchback and dwarf, came up. Fearing Hoover would tell, they decided to kill him, but the fourth Indian became frightened and ran away. He testified to their conversation. Three bullet holes were found in Hoover’s body. Brown says the Indians were members of the band which has murdered several stockmen. “ Little Whirlwind ” was Kardoned a week ago by Gov. Toole, but is action must be approved by the board before he obtains his liberty. The New York Indian Rights Association exerted much pressure in behalf of “ Little Whirlwind,” and obtained the Governor’s approval of the pardon, but stockmen as a rule are opposed to his release. MINE SOLD FOR $6,000,000. One of the Largest Placer Deals in the History of California. Special to The New York Times. SAN FRANCISCO, June 19.-One of the largest mining deals ever made in California was announced to-day in the sale to a syndicate of Philadelphia capitalists of the Sweepstake placer mine in Trinity County, near Weavervllle, for $6,000,000. The purchasers are E. V. Douglass, W. P. Douglass, and F. S. Lewis, the largest shareholders in the Great Lake Superior Consolidated Company, which Is capitalized at $100,000,000. R. J. Anderson of Idaho, a mining expert, bonded the mine for six months, and the owners have cleaned up fortunes without doing any developmental work. The mine consists of a channel about four miles long and 200 feet wide, across a hill at an elevation of 2,980 feet. The ground is a bed of an old creek, and has been believed to be immensely.^rich, but is twenty miles from water. The land Is clay deposit, mixed with black sand, and with boulders which have disintegrated. The result is over 300 feet of pay dirt, that is .said to be rich in gold. The new company ha.*? let a contract for twenty-eight miles of 3C-inçh pipe, which under pressure will carry 5,000 inches of water. It will cost $42U,000. Besides this there will be 10,000 feet of siphon pipes. All this pipe mu.st be hauled sixty miles from the railroad to the mine. The Sweepstake is near the Lagrande placer mine, which is one of the largest producers in the State. F. A. HEINZE PUTS UP CHECKS. Throagh Surety Company Deposits $i.3.’>0,000 In Montana Court. Special to The Nezv York Times. HELENA, Mon., June 19.—A. B. Clements, Montana agent of the Delaware Surety Company, to-day deposited with the Clerk of the Supreme Court seven certified checks for $.50,000 each, as the additional bond of the Montana Ore Purchasing Company, of which F.

' ^ „ This is in addition to the million-dollar bond upon which Senator Clark and his son are the chief sureties. The deci.sion as to the ownership of the Pennsylvania will not be made for some time, and whatever ore Heinze extracts must be covered by an indemnity bond for the protection of the Boston and Montana Company. The court yesterday refused to accept the bond of the Delaware Surety Company. The money probably will be deposited in local banks for safe keeping. MASQUERADE ENDS IN DEATH. Boy, •Falling to Recognize Woman In Male Attire, In His Alarm Accident ally Shoots His Sister. Special ia~The New York Times. ROCHESTER, N. Y., June 19.—Because a young wcman attired herself in men’s garments, made a friendly call upon a neighbor, little eight-year-old Hattie Hineher lies dead at her home in Hilton with a bullet wound through her body shot by her own brother. Last night Charles Mills of Rochester called upon Miss Marie Haddock of Hilton and proposed that she dress up in male attire and that they call on some of the neighbors. Miss Haddock complied, and soon came down dressed in blue flaimel shirt, striped trousers, loose coaL and a rough rider’s hat. A false mustache added to the disguise. , , In this rig Miss Haddock, accompanied by Mills, made several calls, fifially stopping at the Hineher farm. Mr. and Mrs. Hineher were away, and only the two children, Ward, aged twelve, and Hattie, aged eight, were at home. Alarmed by tne strange visitors, the children not knowing Mills nor recognizing Miss Haddock, \^ard hastened for a revolver and pulled the trigger, just a.s little Hattie rqn in front of him. She received the bullét in her back and died this morning. Miss Haddock is prostrated with grief.___ COINEE CAUGHT IN MEXICO. Believed In WasUlnRlon He Converted Mexican Coin Into American. Special to The New York Times. WASHINGTON, June 19.—Chief John E. Wilkie of the Secret Service Division of the Treasury believes that in José Frias, reported captured by Mexican detectives, the authorities have apprehended the man who has been manufacturing American silver dollars in quantities and disposing of them with such success that they have been found even In New York. The method of production was to procure Mexican dollars, which are a little heavier thaH “American dollars, and then to trim and restrike them. As every American dollar is worth abòut two Mexican dollars, this transformation was very profitable. Being of good coin silver, the ring was all right, and the workmanship Was good enough to deceive the careless handler of money, whose chief anxiety Is to know that It is made of good métal. The Secret Service Division sent an officer to Mexico on this business some months ago, hoping to arouse the hiterest of the Mexican Government and bring about a systematic search .for the counterfeiters. As the counterfeiters were only making United States coin, the authorities appeared to take little interest In the suggestion that they should be hunted down. It is not understood at the Treasury that there is any penalty Imposed by Mexico for reproducing coins of other countries in that Republic, but it is assumed that there must be a Mexican law to prevent the conversion of the coin of that country into American coin by unauthorized coiners.

LONDON, June 20.—Thousands of people began collecting outside Queen’s Hall two hours before the advertised time of the pro-Boer meeting held there last evening. When the doors were finally opened, the pressure of the surging mob was so great that many people fainted. There was considerable dl£|turbance, and windows were broken durihg^’the attempts made by persons without tickets to gain admission. Some of these were expelled. In spite of the vigilance of the promoters of the meeting, many “ Jingoes. ” gained an entrance to the hall, which was crammed from floor to celling. Much hooting, mingle^Avrith cheers, greeted the delegates upon their arrival, and during the evening the delivery of speeches was attended with some difficulty from the same cause. Henry, Labouchère, M. P., presided at the meeting, and, besides J. W. Sauer, (ex-Commissloner of Public Works of ^ Cape Colony,) many prominent pro-Boers, including John Dillon, M. P.; David Lloyd-George, M. P.; James Keir Hardie, M. P., and Sir Wilfrid Lawson, were present. During the meeting fully 10,000 Jingoes who had gathered outside Queen’s Hall, blocked traffic in Regent Street, and necessitated relays of policemen to keep a semblance of order In the crowd. Several men mounted the parapet of the Langham Hotel, and, waving Union Jacks, proposed resolutions against the pro-Boer agitation, which they declared had been carried when the meeting in Queen’s Hall terminated. Inside the hall the usual speeches were made and the usual resolutions i were carried, amid much commotion and excitement. The resoiution.s included an amendment in favor of the complete independence of the Boer republics, propo.sed by Lord Battersea, for the Radicals, which did not meet with the approval of the Labouchere party. The meeting ended with the singing of the “ Marseillaise.” J. X. Merriman, (ex-Treasurer of Cape Colony and now a representative of the Afrikander Bond in England,) wrote a letter to the promoters of the meeting apologizing for his absence. Several collisions occurred between the crowd outside the hall and the police, and the latter had the greatest difficulty in handling the assemblage. No casualties were reported. The Daily Mail asserts that the promoters of the meeting secured the services of six or seven hundred “ stalwarts ” as stewards. These “ gangs of forelgiQ ruffians ” were found inside the hall, according to The Daily Mail, ready to keep order and eject the malcontents. The “ stalwarts ” were drawn from the low class foreign clubs in Soho. Many of them were armed with sticks, broom-handles. and knuckle-dusters, and Thq DkUy Mall says they acted With unrestraln^iylolence In excluding Imperialists and ^^rpWliig out undesirable persons. ' All the Loyalist papers publish editorials protesting aaaln.st the “ effrontery ” of the meeting. The Standard “There is no excuse for these Queen s Hall. rhetoricians and their kind. From thè leader of the opposition downward they a*"** as much the enemies of the country as If they were in the field against It with rifles in their hands.” The Dally Chronicle’s editorial is in a milder strain, and-says: “ It was undoubtedly a packed meeting. The stewards were curiously recruited, well-drilled, and suitably armed to eject dissentients. But there had been thinly veiled Incitements to rowdyism on the part of the dissentients, and in view of these and previous experienées, the promoters were not to be blamed for packing the meeting, which, however, served the useful purpose of letting the cat out of the bag as to the real policy behind the Sauer-Merrlman movement; namely, to restore Independence to the two republics.’’ _ ' ^ 4^ x The Right Hon. A. J. Balfour. First Lord of the Treasury. In a speech last evening at • a Conservative banouet in London, made a strong protest against the action of the Campbell-Bannerman party in countenancing the pro-Boer movement, thereby prolonging tne war. and adding to the already great difficulties pd sufferings. “ It Is a scanoklQUs and shocking thing, said Mr Balfour; “ that such men should, before the whole world, accuse their/fe.llow-countryni6n and soldiers of carrying on war by barbarous methods.” KRUEGER’S VISIT TO AMERICA. Preparations for His Reception Being Made—Claim that Boers Have Gained Great Ground Recently. Special to The. New York Times. WASHINGTON, June 19.—The Boer sympathizers in the United States are making preparations for Mr. Krüger’s expected visit to this country in the Autumn, which was announced some time ago by Montague White, the Transvaal representative in Washington. C. W. Van der Hoogt, an active Boer sympathizer of this city, who to-day returned from New York, says a conference of leading pto-Boers was held In that city on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and that the Chairman of the Reception Committee was chosen. He will be Consul General Pierce of the Orange Free State, whose of ficé Is in New York. Mr. Van der Hoogt .says the Boer agents in this country are in possession of complete information, both by telegraph and mail, about the progress of the war, and that their cable advices show that Mrs. Botha’s visit to Mr. Krüger is In no way connected with peacM negotiations. Mrs. Botha took, with her m Europe detailed Information from her husband and from Gen. Sehalkburger, the Acting President. “ Cable advices of a private nature which I saw while in New York.” said Mr. Van der Hoogt, “prove beyond all doubt that the Boers have gained great ground, that they are now in control of all the country in the Transvaal, Orange Free Stete, and Natal and that all that the English control is thè main cities and the stations along the railroad Uñes. The seat of Boer Government is still in the Ermelo District, which is within forty miles of Pretoria. In the Orange Free State and in the Transvaal the Boers have 15,000 regular fighting men in the field, and the force invading Cape Colony Is made up of about 4,000 picked men divided up into mobile bands, who are recruiting constantly and sending the recruits to Botha and De Wet. “Considerable of the credit for the recent Boer victories is due to Col. Blake and his irish-American Brigade. Blake has done some of the most daring acts in the war.” Mr Van der Hoogt said that Gen. Botha was ’ permitted to communicate by cable w^lth Mr. Krüger on condition that he would try to get Krüger to agree to certain peace terms favorable to Great Britain, and that the :^itlsh authorities should see the dispatches. Botha -carried out the agreement, and Krüger’s reply was that independence was the first basis uf any terms of peace. ster that used to drink out of the va^ lake that once covered the J^^rltory noW known as Grand Valley.

Ironmaster Said to Have Ordered a Monument to His Friend, the Statesman. * PITTSBURG, June 19.—Andrew Carnegie will erect a monument to James G. Blaine. A personal friendship of many years and a warm admiration for the great champion of American industries inspire the philanthropist in this, his latest undertaking. A site for the monument, it is believed, will be chosen in Schenley Park, near the Carnegie Institute. It was learned from an authoritative source to-day that Mr. Carnegie has had the erection of the memorial in mind for some time, buttas yet definite plans have not been formulated. The friendship between Mr. Carnegie and Mr. Blaire covered many years. During the past Winter many foreign artists have visited Pittsburg, and the presence now of Franklin Simmons, the sculptor of the John A. Logan'and other statués, has given rise to much speculation. Mr. Simmons denied that the purpose of his visit to Pittsburg was to make any contracts for the erection of statues here, but admitted that he had expected a conference with John W. Beatty, Director of Art of the Carnegie Institute. Mr. Beatty Is now In Europe. CARNEGIE’S OFFER TO SCOTLAND. His Plan Indorsed by the Edinburgh University Union. LONDON, June 19.—The first expression of the opinion of Scottish University students concerning Andrew Carnegie’s plans for education in Scotland was given tonight. when the B^iinburgh University Union debated the subject. As a. result of the debate, a motion was made to the effect that, while the Union fully appreciated Mr. Carnegie’s great,gift, no scheme was considered adequate which did not^rovide for the complete abolition or This motion was rejected by 54 to 25 votes, and an amendment was ^^“ed expressing the fullest confidence of the Lum-burgh University Union in Mr. ? method of dealing with the problem, and characterizing it as right in Principle and a direct step toward a higher standard of national education. $250,000 GIFT TO CORNELL.

Refeipts and Expenditures for the Fiscal Year Very Close to His Estimates. Special to The New York Times. WASHINGTON, June 19.—The excess of receipts over expenditures for the fiscal year that will end June 30 promises to be very close* to the estimates made by Secretary Gage in his annual report to Congress. Some doubt ha.s been expressed as to whether the excess would reach the $80,000,000 anticipated, but the doubt is not entertained at the Treasury Department. The excess reported for the month was more than $69,000.000, representing the returns of fifteen business days. The excess of receipts reported to-day was $997,-215, and for several days it has been close to a million. If the average excess for the fifteen days is kept up for the remainder of the month It will be close to $78,000,000. But to-morrow there is to be a sale of a railroad—the Sioux City and Pacific—and It is believed that the amount obtained from that sale will be upward of $1,500,000. This will bring the excess up to and perhaps above the estimated $80,-000,000. It is believed by Treasury officials that the figures for the year will not vary more than a million or two either way from those given out by Mr. Gage in last December. Secretary Gage calculated that the re^ ceipts for the year would be $687,773,2^, Including those of the postal servi^ Up to to-day the receipts have been $566,9W,-827, and if the rate of receipts for the earlier days of the month Is maintaiiied the receipts, exclusive of tho.se from the postal service, will reach $.586.G00,(^, and with the postal receipts added will make $694.000,000, or about $6,500,000 more than estimated. The expenditures were estimated to reach $607,773,253 with the ppstel It Had Assembled to Tar and Feather His Sister’s Fiance. Young Man Later Threatened to Shoot Hla Prospective Father-in-Law —Is Under Arrest. MOUNT HOLLY, N. J., JuneЛЭ.—Twenty-five masked men assembled in the vicinity of ex-Judge B. P. Willis’s house last night bent on treating Harry Allen Baxter, the fiancé of Miss Willis, to a coat of tar and feathers. Entering the large yard, they made an effort to enter the rear door. Then something happened. The Judge’s teh-year-old son asked them very pointedly to retire, at the same time he leveled a shotgun at the gang, which beat a hasty retreat. ” I’ll shoot the first one to enter,”. he said, and immediately there was a aiump in tar and a reaction in the feather market, which had been decidedly bullish. All the time young Allen was in an upstairs room armed with a revolver and a large amoiint of that discretion which at times outdoes any sort of valor. Allen Is not the “star boaç^er ” of the Willis household by any manner of means. The Judge doesn’t like him at all, but Mrs. Wllli.s favors his suit, and so does the young woman. He came here from New York some time ago, and, although the Judge opposes the marriage, he permitted ''the youth, up to this morning, to live In the house. This morning, hard upon the heels of the exciting events of last night, the Judge and his prospective son-in-law had a row. Baxter drew a revolver and threatened to shoot. The Judge ran at him. and, seizing the weapon, thrashed him. Baxter rushed out of the house coatless and hatless, alid ran down Main Street to Grant, closely pursued by the Judge and a large and excited crowd. Arriving at Grant Street Station he attempted to board a passing trolley car for Burlington. He was caught, and again chastised by the Judge. , , . , Baxter once more pulled bis revolver. William Jènnett and Mlcajah Matlack, who were in the crowd that had assembled, seized Baxter, and taking his revolver away, 'ordered him to get out as soon as possible. Baxter ran along the trolley track toward Burllngtoii. Judge Willis then went before Squire Krayer and swore out a warrant for the arrest of Baxter. Giving this to Detective Ellis H. Parker, he stopped a passing team arid drove rapidly off in pursuit. Miss Willis had learned of the row, and she immediately drove to the rescue, overtaking Baxter In his flight toward Burlington. She hurried off with him in the carriage Later Baxter was found in the home of Mrs. M. R. Sooy, In Mount Holly, and arrested. PROF. RIGGS FINDS A DINOSAUR.

Cultivated by the Negroes In Tropical Africa, It Is Believed to be a Perfect Nutriment. Special to The New York Times. WASHINGTON, June 19.—In a communS-caUon to the State Department, Richard Guenther, Consul General at Frankfort, Germany, says: “ German papers speak of an annual plant growing In tropical Africa, belonging to the leguminous class, which is largely cultivated by the negroes as a food article. It has also been introduced to some extent In Southern Asia and In Brazil. It is called woaridsu by the African negroes; the botanical name is Glycine subterránea. “ The French expert chemist of aliments has recently analyzed the fruit of the woandsu with reference to its chemmai composition and its value as food. The fruit, like the peanut, matures under ground. The eatable kernel has the shape of an egg, and is dark red, vnth black stripes and a white hllum, like most beans. It furnishes a very white flour, whose flavor after cooking much resembles that of chestnuts. The chemical composition is 68 per cent, of starchy substance, 19 per cent, nitrogenous, 10 per cent, water, 6 per cent, oily, 4 per cent, cellulose substance, and 3 per cent, ashes. It will be seen that two pounds*of these beans would supply the dally requirements of the human system. “ M. Balland, who has had wide experience in the chemistry of nutriments, calls, this fruit the first one found by him In a natural state which shows all the chemical properties of a perfect nutriment.” WEDDED AT FIANCE’sTeDSIDE.

House Passes Finally on Supplemental Measures Regarding Rapid Transit. HARRISBURG, Penn., June 19.—The House passed finally, on special orders today, the two .'bills suppléhiental to the Rapid Transit acts signed by the Governor recently. These bills were introduced and passed in the Senate last week, and they now go to the Governor for his action. The one constituting the Governor. Secretary of State, and Attorney General a board to pass on applications for rapid transit franchises was attacked anti-administration Republicans and Democrats. Mr. Coray oI'Huzerne, a Republican leader of the ’* Insurgent element, ^^‘*Two weeks ago the office of Secretary of the Commonwealth presented a scene which will go down In history. There were a lot of hungry parasites and a lot of millionaires present in obedience to the orders theÿ had received to raid the treasury They carried away valuable franchises, and now It is proposed to prevent others from getting similar favors by placing the power to grant them in the hands "^Ш.^Согау said the people were opposed to the rapidity with which these bills were pas^d bÇ. the LegWature •• The time will come,” he concluded, when the people will sweep your Jnfernal machine off the face of the earth.’’ , . ,, Mr Hall (Republican of Allegheny) said this 'legislation is a very poor climax to what has already been enacted. Mr Hayne (Democrat of Lehigh) criticized the legislation as infamous, and protested against its passage. He said this Legislature had become a stench and byword to the public, and that its only chance to redeem itself was by defeating these '^Tbe bill passed by a vote of 105 to 65, receiving in its favor only two m^ore than the requisite number of votes. The counting of a member not present as voting “ aye ” was challenged, but the Speaker said the vote did not affect the result, and no further action was taken. NO PNEUMATIC TUBE SEEVICE.

The third day of the trial of Thomas Q. Barker before Judge John A. Blair, In the Hudson County Court of General Sessions, In Jersey City, charged with shooting with intent to kill the Rev. John Keller In the streets of Arlington, N. J., on Sunday morning, Feb. 3 last, opened yesterday morning with the expectation on the part of the crowds that thronged the little courtroom and clamored vainly for ad-mlttance\at the doors that the defendant had practically fought hi.s fight at the bar of justice for a jusltioatlon of his act in trying his best to kill the man who, he believed, had invaded and violated tho sanctity of his home, and hatMbst. It had been predicted on the conclusion of the proceedings on the day before that the defense, after having tried in vain to bring into the case the strange story told by Mrs. Barker, the wife of the accused man, to her husband of a wrong done her at her home by the clergyman, and which it was contended furnished the motive for the shooting, had played its last cani, and that yesterday w’ould see the close of the sensational trial with the admission of the defendant’s guilt of assault with intent to kill, or with the finding of a verdict by the jury that would send him to prison with the mysteries surrounding the case still iinrevealed. It was confidently believed by many who had followed the swiftly recurring incidents of the trial since its beginning, threa days ago, that with the stern interposition of the New’ Jersey statutes, as Interpreted and applied by the pr^lding Ju.stlee at the trial wherever the /uefendanfs counsel had sought an opening, that that “ unwritten law ’’ that has preserved the freedom of avenging husbands in many parta of this country would remain, in New’ .ler-sey at least, a dangerous legal fiction. The defendant had been put upon the .stand during the second day of the trial to tell liis story of the motive for shooting down the clergyman, but each time he had attempted to repeat the story told him by his wife he had been promptly stopped by the application of the law that recognizes an assault simply hs an assault and refuses to consider the motive. Beaten at every turn by the rulings of th< Judge, the defense had withdrawn theli witness with a promi.se that they would produce him again. They had placed or the stand an alienist to prove that a storj of wrongs such as had been recounted tc Barker by his wife were#sufflcient to temporarily prev'ent a man from distinguishing between right and wrong. The testimony of this witness had in turn been rejected as having no bearing on Barker’s act. The lawyer for the defense, after having struggled desuerately to find an opening through which the story of Mr.s. Barker—the compelling force ihat swept onward to the tragedy -could be introduced, found them-.selves at the close of the second day of the trial compietely baffled. ASPECT OP THE CASE CHANGES. M’hen yesterday’s sessions had ended the aspects of the case had been almost completely reversed, after nearly six hours of as desperate legal fencing as is on record in annals of the State. The two lawyers for the defense put Barker again on the stand, ^nd this time by sheer force of persistence and dogged determination got from him in miniue fragments, slipped into the records in tne face of strenuous opposition from the prosecution, enough of the story of the injured wife to indicate the whole to the jury. Question after question w'as asked the black-eyed principal In the strange case. As these w’ere challenged and stricken out the same questions were put again and again in altered forms, until in some guise they got upon the records. Despite every effort of the opposing counsel, Mrs. Barker, the wife of the accused man. who is perhaps after ail the centra! figure in the case, was put upon the stand, and again, amid a rain of questions, objections, substitutions, and alterations last* Ing for hours, one by one the component parts of her story of wrongs at the hands of the clergyman were carried piecemeal over the legal fortifications, later to be reunited as a whole before the jury in the final summing up of the case. Dr. Britton Evans, Superintendent of the Morris Plains Insane Asylum, a recognized expert on Insanity, who had been called on the day before, and whose testimony was kept cut of ’he record.s. was recalled vesterdav, and the two lawyers for the defen.se. with infinite pains and wearying persistence, got before the jury the expert opinion that Barker at the time he committed the crime of which he is accused was so wrought up as a result of a “ story of injuries told him by his wife,” that he wa.s incapable of distinguishing between right and wrong. ' Other witnesses W’ere called, who testified that they had been impressed with the “ unusual behavior of Barker ’’ for two weeks prior to Feb. 3. and that Barker had told them, of a “ great trouble at his home.” Every juryman-as well as every spectator of the unusual scenes at the trial understood, as the two young law’-yers conducting the defense intended that ihev should understand, the meaning of tho “ story of w’rongs ” and “ the great trouble at his home.” The basis had been laid for the contention of the ,^efense that Barker had been rendered mentally irresponsible by the recitals of his wife, and while under the Influence of the effects of this revelation had tried his best to kill his fellow-tow’^n.sman. Prosecutor Erwin, for the State, fought strenuously to stem the tide of this evidence. He Tvas on his feet almost constantly. wrangling and objecting, but it was a'case of two to one. and the opposing counsel were the younger and the keener men. He was defeated at certain points .simply through physical exhaustion. A single question would at times be asked a score of times. Rebounding from the solid wall of Jersey law, it would be put forw’ard again and again in various forms and disguises. until finally it went home and settled on the records. The defense was also aided from without the courtreom by some secret ally who worked through the medium of ^e press. There was caused to be printed -#hat purported to be the statement made by Mrs. Parker to her husband’s lawvers immediately after bis arrest last February. In ■which she detailed the story of a.ssault which she alleged was committed upon her at her home by the Rev. Mr. Keller In April, 18i)9. MRS. BARKER’S STORY OF ASSAULT. Tn this statement, which was immediately printed in the afternoon papers and eagerly read by the jurymen during the noon recess. Mrs. Barker sets forth that on .\pril 19, 1891^ Mr Keller, «vhose church she attended, and who was an intimate friend of her and her husband, called at her home in the absence of her husband, and in her parlor criminally assaulted her. and that injuries Inflicted during the commission of the act resulted in ruining her health. After givteg details the statement goes on to state that soon after that time Mrs. Barker ceased to attend the clergyman’s church, but: kept hei secret from her husband, fearing a tragedy, but .she told it later to .some women friend.s. and finally, a vear and a half later, it found its way to her husband’s ears. In response to his eurn^sl entreaties she had then told him :ut.
