I shall alw ays have the firm conviction in my own mind that he is the man that drove the buggy on the eventful night. I have a strong chain of circumstantial evidence against him, but candidly admit that I can not secure a conviction without the identification." CHICAGO, Feb. 20 B. Kelley, who was arrested in St. Louis for alleged complicity in the murder of Dr. Cronin, was brought back to Chicago last night and submitted to the test of identifica- tion in the office of Chief ot Police Marsh. Mrs. Conklin and Frank Scanlan declared the voice and gestures of the prisoner were similar to those of the man who called for the doctor and drove him to his death, but neither could pos- itively identiry him. Both thought the prisoner a much older man than the one who drove the famous white horse.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. The Agricul- tural Committee ot the House gave a hearing yesterday on the compound latd question. W. W. Eimball, of Boston, was the first speaker. He appeared in favor of the Conger bill to impose a tax upon and regulate the manufacture, sale, etc., of compound lard. He said that the first and highly important fea- ture which had attracted attention in connection with the manufacture and sale of counterfeit or compound lard was the fact that, soon after the close of the investigation by the Fiftieth Con- gress in regard to the matter, some of the firms who had for years been large manufacturers of the compound, and who strenu- ously opposed during the Fiftieth Con- gress any legislation, which had for its object the regulation, sale and proper branding of these compounds suddenly came to the conclusion that there was really some cause for complaint in re- gard to their methods, by the regular legitimate packers of hog products in this country, and those who chose not to depart from their time honored cus- tom of producing only a strictly pure and unadulterated product known as hog's lard. Thereupon the manufac- turers of compounds and substitutes agreed to brand their entire product of those compounds as "compound lard." Another new feature in connection with the matter was that the largest manufacturer of so-called lard com- pounds no longer existed as a private firm, but had been merged into a trust which was called the ''cotton oil trust" and therefore the opposition to the meas- ure came from a powerful organization. Alexander Wedderburn, of Alexan- dria, Va., representing the State Grange of Virginia, stated that he was fully in accord with the Conger bill. The adul- teration of hog lard was destroying our commerce in this article with foreign countries. He had received numerous letters from farmers all over the coun- try. All these showed that the farmers were heartily in favor of the Conger bill. Mr. Wodderburn presented a resolution adopted by the National Grange, Patrons of Husbandry, reaffirming its former as- sertions in regard to the subject lard adulteration and favoring the Conger bill. The manufacturers received for their lard last year, while the farmers received only Mr. Wedderburn read a letter frota Ralph Beaumont, a member of the Executive Committee of the Knights of Labor, stat- ing that the Knights of Labor were heartily in favor of the Conger bill. E. Pilot, of Pennsylvania, was the next speaker He said that the farmers wanted all the protection they could get. He wanted the committee to make a law that would prevent the adulteration of lard. The farmers wanted a law "tnat would compel these people to put on their product exactly what it was." This closed the statements of those in favor of the bill and George H. Webster, a member of the firm of Armour Co., Chicago, began a statement against the proposed legislation He said that com- pound lard was not an adulteration; there was nothing unhealthy or harmful in it. The industry deserved encourage- ment from the Government, because manv thousand persons were supported by it. and because the product wa3 healthful and economical to the con- sumer. The lard packed by Armour <t Co. was branded and labeled in a man- ner that left no doubt as to its quality. The did not require the proposed legislation, they did not desire it, and treasury did not need it. Henry Burtcber. representing the Southern Cotton Seed Oil Company, that the purpose of the Conger bill swtm.'d lobes to destroy the compound lard industry. It was clear that the vi the bill was to IK-JH-SI tlio industry at the rrpcnsc of Mother. The Mil. should it become a law. would to tbr cotton raisinc indastrr.

Ky., Feb. the enoation Tuesday of Ellison Mounts. discovered a plot wbicb, If would have resulted in the eectpe of the prisoner and the probable of a number of the guards of tbe jail. Through tbe confession of tbe jail eooi the discovery waa made. The Hat- field) had paid tbe cook to put a in the food of tbe jail guards the pigbt before the execution. The cook wu' told that the drug given her was to make the guards go to sleep. She pecame suspicious and concluded to try tie effects of the preparation on a cat. The result was the death of the aninal in horribly agony. She then be- cams alarmed and refused to put the in the food. She did not commu- nicate her intentions, however, to the outliws and they gathered near the jail to await the signal which would indi- zaiethat the guards were sick. JJvd this sale attempt at murdei beec successful not only the prisoners in the prison would have been killed front the effects of the poison, but also the sheriff's family and posse. The drug waa found to be strychnine. The cook waa immediately arrested. All the out- law gatg have fled to the mountains of West Virginia, where it is sure death for the officers to follow them. All the lawless persons who are responsible for thla affair are from West Vir- ginia. The sheriff is having the neces- sary papers arranged to secure requisi- tions foe the would-be murderers and every olort will be made to bring them to justice. Should they be brought back here diirtng the piftseab excito- meat erery cue of them would be in- stantly mobbed, as the people are with indignation. ECHOES PROM THE TO CLOSE UPTHE RANKS. Negotiations on Foot Which May Result in Purchase of the Pluyers of the Indl- anapols Club by the New York League IKDIASAPOI.IS, Feb. 20. President Day, of the New York League ball club, said Wednesday: "I am here after the Indianapolis team, if it is possible to get it. want the whole outfit. It is well recognized that an eight club cir- cuit would enable the League to make a more successful and determined fight against the Brotherhood. Of course, if Indianapolis gee's out, it would force out one other club. If we could get the Indianapolis pla3rers we would stand on an equal footing with the Brotherhood." At eleven o'clock Mr. Day joined President Brush at his rooms, where a lenghty consultation was had. Mr. Day stated after the consultation that no offer whatever had been made for the Indianapolis playws, but that he only presented to Brush the advisability of <i reduction to an eight club league Ohio Banquet.
