"Penrose has been challenged to drop
his gun or use It." he cald of tho Vare
challenge. "I wish Vare Godspeed In his
efforts to show the Inside of the rnttonest

"Senator Penrose has already declired '

It was suggested, "and the belief Is that I
Vare's jhallenge will bring forth nothing j
better than another colorless denial."
"Well." said Congressman Palmer. "I j
don't ery well see how statements so ;
specific could be answered by general ;
He took the Varo challenge to mean I
that nothing abort of n libel suit could '
develop the facts behind the story and
satisfy the Vares.
"If Penrose falls to act and tries again
to answer the North American by
specloiw denials then he will stand guilty
In tiie public mind," Mr. Palmer went ori.
"Vare has challenged him to do one
of two things; Penrose must fither bring

Golder repudiated the evidence he gave
, at the Coroner's inquest that he saw Mrs.

after the killing. Ills testimony was so
contradictory that It lost all Its weight
' as tending to substantiate the prisoner's
Innocence. Previously he connected her
with the tragedy, hut today he tried to

attacked through reading pages in
Coroner's Inquest testimony. Counsel for
the prisoner protested In vain against
the reading of the old evidence.

to complete. The finals will be decided
tomorrow. The wenther was Ideal, the
air being Just chilly enough to put tho
athletes on their mcttlo.
The Philadelphia pollco band, composed
of some EO members, entertained the

Tho real feature of the afternoon was
a drill executed by some three scorn of
Philadelphia "finest" under tho direction
of Drlllmaster Harry Edwards. Tho'y
went through some military figures In

with a running Jog around the field, keep

demonstration of how the police handle
rough characters. Silas McLoughlln dis

The carnival this year Is replete with
novel exhibitions. Among the features
scheduled for this afternoon are a flrst-ald-to-the-lnjurcd
