aviators were clamoring for admittance

demanded admittance. Promptly at 10
o'clock the spectators assembled were
wrapped to order and as the defendants
filed in and the attorneys took their aents
tne clerk called the roll of jurors. Every
man responded to his name and the Cronin
trial formally beiran. State's attnmov.
tiongenecker at once began his openine ad-
aress to the jury
He very briefly alluded to the lone con-
unuea silting ot venire men which had re
sulted in the selection of the twelve men
before him. He then defined the duties of
uie jurymen ana the mean i 111? of nm.
sumption of innocence as mmlvinp- tn wp.
sons charged with crime telling the jury
lJicouiMuiun 01 innocence was a mat-
ter to be weighed against evidence. It was
he said a mere negative at best and stand
in the way of conviction in the absence ot
evidence but must not be allowed to
weaken the force ol'thc evidence given.
Mr. Lonrenecker next took tne inrv nnd
defined the meaning of a reasonable doubt
as applied in such cases as this. He said:
'"When yon stated that vou would not con
vict these men except they were proven
guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and it
imply meant thus: that it. after hearimr
the evidence you are satisfied as to the
truth of the charges: if you are satisfied as
jurymen sworn to do your duty thut the
iik'U on trial are guilty then you have 110

You have no ri 'lit to hunt around for an
excuse to refrain from doing that which
the law makes it vour duty to do.
Mr. Forrest of counsel for the defense.
interrupted the speaker at this point.
claiming that the definition of reasonable
doubt had no place in an opening address
and shculd be used only in a closing ad-
dress. The court overruled 'the point and Mr.
Forrest noted an exception.
The state's attorney then proceeded to
define murder and to set forth what were
the material allegations in the indictment
which it would be necessary for-the state to
prove in order to lustily a conviction.
These were that Dr. Cronin was killed that
the killing was done in this state; that it
was ''done without adequate provocation
and that these defendants did it. The
sneaker then defined circumstantial evi
dence which he illustrated by saying that a
man might see another pointing a pistol at
a third person at night hear a report and
see a man drop but as he could not see the
bullet strike the man it would be only cir-
cumstantial evidence of the shooting. The
sneaker then spoke of the disappearance of
CrDiiin and the finding of his body ten
days afterwards and said tne state proposed
to prove it a ruuruer as tne result 01 tne
result of a conspiracy. He said these men
are charged with having murdered Dr.
Cronin. The evidence we shall introduce
will be to show a conspiracy to murder Dr.
The state's attorney then proceeded to
speak of the motive for the crime and said
in order to show what that motive was it
became necessary to go into the history in
this country of the organization known as
the United Brotherhood commonly called
Mr. Ixingenecker then proceeded to state
Mm histnrv of the Clau-na-Gael in this
country saving it was made up of
patriotic Irishmen Irishmen who
went into it for political reasons
and the money there was in it and to free
I reland by force of arms as soon as a favora-
ble opportunity should oiler. He declared
that the triangle was supreme; that the
oaths of the members and their command
superior to the laws of the nation.
Mr Forrest objected to this line of state-
ment as iiiadnnssable in advance of the
Judge McConncll said that he did not
know it would be proved but he warned
the state's attorney that he was making
these statements at his peril.
The state's attorney said he would prove
what he had said and he accepted the re-
sponsibility. He proceded to say that when
Sullivan and Bowland got control of the
executive board they changed the plan of
the work of the organization and inaugu-
rated a dynamite policy which was ac-
cepted with perfect and unquestioning
obedience to the commands of the board.
The defense again prayed an exception to
this line of statement.

vt itnesss called for the Purpose of iden-
tifying the body were Nicholas Wallenbom
wme and liquor merchant and friend of the
dead doctor; T. T. Conklin the man in
whose family Cronin had lived for ten or
twelve years; John T. Scanlan member of
the Uan-iia-Gaolrand intimate friend and
partisan of Doctor Cronin: Frank Scanlan
brother of John and David P. Ahern mer-
chant tailors who made the doctors clothes.
I he identification was very perfect and very
positive. It embraced the' height size and
general appearance of the dead man shape
of Ins goatee conformation of his fuce par-
ticularly his forehead shape and size of
his teeth shape of one broken finger and
heavy growth of hair on the doctors wrists.
The next matter laken mi tho flndino
of the body in the catch basin. Two sewer
cleaners who discovered the body and noti-
'"o i.oiice oi ine iact ana tne police-
men who were sent and assisted
in removing the body were sworn
as to this point and de-
scribed the proceedings Lawyer Forrest
for the defense made a cross-examination
on this head very searching and rigid com
pelling witness to go over tne proceedings
in connection with the removal of the bod v
with the utmost minuteness.
The taking of evidence was then resum-
ed Patrick McGary boiler maker and
friend of DoctorCronin identified the body
taken from the catch basin as that o'f
the dead physician.
Doctor L. W. Lewis dentist who had od-
orated professionally upon Doctor
Cronin's mouth also identified the
body. He described the peculiarities
of Doctor Cronin's mouth the number of
missing teeth form of jaw etc. identified
the plute with false teeth attached as ore
lie had made for Doctor Cronin and said
that the cast of the mouth which he made
fitted that of the corpse.
Doctor J. K. Kgbert assistant county
physician identified the plate with the
teeth attached as one he had taken from
the mouth of Doctor Cronin on the dav
after his body was found. The court then
iook a recess.
SCENE IN COUBT.
SENSATIONAL EPISODE IN THE PRE-
LUMINARY HEARING OF
The Defendant Hakes His Statement De
nounces Bowman and Grows Livid
With Rage The Result.
St. Louis October 28. The preliminary
examination of B. M. Chambers for the kil-
ling of Lawyer Frank J. Bowman resumed
at Clayton to-day. Frank Jenkins colored
and Miss Ella McLaughlin testified that
Bowman maue a motion as it to draw a
pistol before Chambers fired the fatal shot.
The examination is progressing very
ine most sensational teature ot the
Chambers-Bowman tragedy since the kill-
ing of the well-known attorney by the ex-
bank president occurred late this after-
noon when B. M. Chambers was put on
the stand and interrogated by Prosecutor
Chambers recited the details of the trag
edy from the arrival of Bowman and
outv snenit uarret at nis place ud to
the killing of Bowman and his subsequent
arrest. The story was substantially the
sairie as related in the first dispatches sent
out witn uie exception mat unaniDcrs re-
lated the whispered conversation between
Bowman and himself on the porch prior to
the shooting. Bowman said he must have
$13. "But 1 haven't got $13" responded
Chambers. "Then said Bowman "I
must levy on everything in sight. I
knew the character of the
man or. rather the lack
of character said Chambers becoming ex-
cited and I knew if he once entered the
house he would gut it without regard for
the lights or feelings of anyone. The
thought then occurred to me that I would
frighten him oil' the place. I knew that
my gun and cartridges were where I could
find them in the darkjof need be as I was
prepared for a visit from the burglars and
I entered the house secured and loaded
the weapon. When I came out I kept
an eye on Garrett for fear he
would see the gun and shoot me.
When Garrett saw me he called to me to
not do thut not to shoot. I told him to
leave and then turned to Bowman and
said: "I will give you ten minutes to get
off this place." I expected him to go but
he did not move. The sight of the gun
seemed to have no effect on him whatever
and he smiled that cunniugsmile I knew so
well. I was nonplussed. An empty gun
would have frightened me more than the
loaded one would Bowman.
"Did Bowman make a motion to leave?"
asked Prosecutor Warfield.
"No" replied Chambers "he did not.
He never moved a musle. A thousand
thoughts flashed through my mind. I
thought if Bowman could see a clock or
watch he would go. When the three min-
utes were up I looked down at my hand as
though I had one. I thought that I was in
duty bound to give Bowman the allotted
minutes. Then I saw him make
a motion with his hand and it
occurred to me if I did not shoot
him he would shoot me. I thought of the
Terry-Field-Nagle affair and the quickness
with which a man can draw a pistol and
shoot. My finger was on the trigger and I
pulled it and Bowman fell."
"You knew he was dead?" asked Mr.
"You saw him fall and his hat fly up in
"Yes his hat flew up as though a gust of
wind had struck it."
"Where was Garrett?"
"He had gone."
"Was any one else there?"
"Yes my sister Mrs. Hudson ran out
and cried : My God 1 Mv God 1 what have
you done?" I replied that I was sorry for
her sake and mothers but that I could not
After eliciting a statement of the finan-
cial dealings between Chambers and Bow-
man the prosecutor cross questioned
Chambers so closely that the defendant
lost his temper and the spectators in the
court room were keenly expectant of sensa-
tion but not such ajsigniticant denouement
as they were treated to.
"You were afraid Bowman would kill
you" asked the prosecutor.
"Yes" replied Chambers.
"Because he would do anything. He
was the d dest scoundrel I ever knew."
As he said this Chambers leaned lor-
ward in bis chair and his face became
livid with rage. Spectators in the court
room arose to their feet and awaited the
finale of the scene.
"Yes sir!" shouted Chambers hoarsely
"never such a dd scoundrel as Bowman
ever lived and I rejoice that I killed him."
A painful silence reigned in the
court room and the scene was
one never to be forgotten
by those who were present. The testimony
of Chambers in his own behalf closed the
preliminary hearing and lie was held with-
out bail to awuit action of the grand jury.
The record will be returned to the circuit
court at Ht. Charles where a motion lor
bail will be signed by Chambers' attorney

A BIG MOVEMENT
CONVENTION OF THE WHEAT GROW.
" KKS AND FARMERS OF THE
Object to Control the Price of Wheat The
Farmers' Federation With a' Capital
St. Louis October 23. The wheat growers
of the" Mississippi valley assembled In
convention in this city this afternoon to
organize for future action. Walter N. Al-
len president of the Farmers' federation
called the meeting to order and mado a
long speech. Hesaid it was the first meet-
ing of the kind ever held on this con-
tinent. "We are not here" he said "for the pur-
pose of denouncing trusts and combines
but to meet the issue of so.ne new sys-
tems and conditions in trade realizing our
individual feebleness ana . the great im-
portance of unity of action as a class. We
have been called together to consider the
proposition to delegate to a power of our
own creation the exclusive right to mar-
ket the products of our farms and to take
such measures as will afford present re-
lief and future protection to the agri-
cultural interests of the Mississippi valley."
The farmer is the only producer who
sends an over supply of his wares to
market to be sold by some one else and
like the goods of the bankrupt at soma
one else's price and when he dares com-
plain of the sacrifice the answer of the
master is "over 'production." "Over pro-
duction" can not in justice bo wealth tor
the nation and slavery for the producer.
If the farmers would organize like the
manufacturers to- control production and
regulate output in the public markets
they could in common with all producers
set the prices on their own produce irre-
spective of over production or the power
of Liverpool markets.
Tne unavoidable tendency of the present
established trade system is to drive the
price down to the lowest limit at which a
good supply can be produced under the
most favorable conditions of soil season
aald climate. Now in order to avert im-
pending ruin we must reverse this order by
substituting a new system fixing the price
of farm products at the cost of production
on Unds that only produce thirty fold.
This will restore the natural law of exchange
with equal and exact justice to all.
In other words the dill'erence between the
present trade structure and the system pro-
posed is the one tends to the minimum
price that a food supply tan be obtained
for without checking production while the
other seeks the maximum price that a food
supply can be sold for without diminishing
consumption. The power to establish the
value or one bushel of American wheat and
one barrel of mess pork can control the
markets of the world. This power is to be
found in the centralized agency of the
federated furmers of the Mississippi valley
a company legally chartered with a capital
of $20000000 nd as your servant this com-
pany awaits your bidding to enter upon its
work of redemption. 1

DISSENSIONS IN THE MANAGEMENT.
Differences Between a Railroad President
and His General Manager.
Special to The Statesman. x
Fobt Wobth October 25. For some time
It has been known that perfectly amicable
relations are no longer obtained in the
management of the Fort Worth and
Rio Grande' railway. This difference
culminated in a call by Vice-president
Wicker for a meeting of the
board of directors the rumored object of
the meeting being the removal of President
Paddock. Yesterday was the day for the

authority to cull it the president being still
in office and in the city. Mr. N. A.
Steadman the general attorney for the
road resigned as attorney saying he
understood the object of the proposed
meeting of the board of directors was the
removal of President Paddock and he was
with him in this fight. President Pad-
dock when seen Unlay said the above
facts were substantially true. He said: Some
weeks ago Mr. Wicker who is the manager
of the company's business in New
York wfote . me an insulting let-
ter. When he arrived here on
Saturday last I asked him to retract the in-
sulting language. He persistently refused
to do so and 1 was forced to administer a
little corporal punisSment. Mr. Wloker
alleges no official misconduct against me
but seeks revenge by endeavoring to injure
me in my business rather than to pursue
the more ruanly course usual in such cases.
: Window Glass.
Pittsbcro October 25. The selling price
of glass is to be advanced by the indow
Glass Manufacturer's association at the
next weekly meeting. A resolution author-
izing a 5 per cent advance will be intro-
duced and acted upon by the association.
The demand for first-class window glass is
very brisk and the supply is limited. It is
now selling at 80 and 5 percent off single
strength and 80 and 10 per cent off double
acar load to be 21000 pounds. The impor-
tation of glass has greatly decreased owing
it is said to the failure of the tank furnaces
of Europe. The consumption of American
glass has increased correspondingly and
created this great demand.
