Becomes Angered by Cross- Exam ination of Assistant District Attorney. SAN FRANCISCO, April tain Michael Joseph Conboy, on trial for manslaughter for the killing of Bernard Lagan, took his fate into his own hands this morning, disregard- ing his attorney, and proceeded to argue In his own defense on the wit- ness stand In Sargent's court. He was under the fire of cross-ex- amination by Assistant District At- torney Brennan pud, angered at the latter's theatrical arguments and cross-fire queries, he debated with the lawyer for the benefit of the jury. Conboy had been asked regarding his shooting- of Lagan and had told of firing two shots at a wall and one shot directed at tha young man, who had been 8 feet away, but was close to him when he pulled the trigger. Brennan asked him if he didn't know it to be a fact that Lagan was far off and that the shooting did not oc- cur at all as described. Then came the defendant's explosion. "I don't know any such thing, Brennan, and neither do you, Tou know that I speak the truth- Tou know that you have the coat there with the powder marks on It. That is the best evidence that I fired close. Why don't you show that to the Jury; why don't you pass It around them? I had a suspicion 'cnat the young man was going: to wb me and that he was a pickpocket, and warned him off, and I shot him." The case may go to the Jury to- rn orrovr.

PerklJs of tho steel trust and Dan R. Hans, boss of Ohio; that while In office Roosevolt did everything he could to frustrate legis- lative reforms: that-prior to his campaign Roosevelt denounced tlio recall every- where !r California, where he was advised that tho measure would carry by popular vote; that while advocating tariff revisions Roosevelt saw to ft that none of it wae .done during his term of office, but left It to his successor; that when Taft raised the tariff Instead of towering; It Roosevc-lt had nothing to say on the sub- ject and has nothing on the tariff at the present time.
