HO PLOT IS PEOTEN.
fSucu Is the Gist of Lawyer Forrest's
Argument in Defense of
;-DB,CROKIFS ALLEGED HUBDEEERS
1ht Attorney Bidicules the State's Wit
nesses, Who, He Says,
BAD MOST REMARKABLE MEMORIES.
The ITosecation Chaired With Elniiers Tilt Serionsly
Weaken Their Case .
Mr. Forrest continued his argument for
the defense in the Cronin trial yesterday.
He indulged in a good deal of ridicule of
the State and its witnesses, and declared
that the expert testimony did not show how
Cronin came to his death.
Chicago, December 9. At the opening
of the Cronin trial this morning Mr. Forrest
resumed his address to the jury in behalf
of the defense. He arcnemt length on the
unreliability of circumstantial evidence,
and the difficulty of proving a negative.
Speaking of the recovery of Dr. Cumin's
clothes, he said:
Can it faith, call it blind chance, call it over
ruling Providence. caU it what you trill, either
plain faith, chance or overruling Providence, it
did for Martin Bnrke, the bumble laborer,
what nil counsel and all the witnesses in the
world couldn't have done. Suppose that the
truth hadn't been disclosed; suppose that the
clothes had not been found; suppose' that the
argument had been made by these centlemen
that they had been sent abroad, and what'an
arcnment,4oo, they would have made in the
form of a narration; they could have described
the box going across the stormy sea, they could
have talked about the ship that held its guilty
secret, they could have speculated upon vrbat
was being done, what was done, and what was
suing to be done.
BEGGS' ACQ.TJITXAX jPBEDICTED.
Suppose that you had beUeved it and drawn
the conclusion that they urged you to draw in
their opinion, and that they would have urged
70U to draw in their closing; suppose then you
bad imposed the death penalty and it had been
executed; and then suppose that the truth had
been discovered, and the clothes found in the
North town sewer. What justification could
you have made to the people of the State of
Illinois. what justification could you have made
in your own breast to your God. what justifica
tion could you have made in the form of your
own conscience and yourself?
Mr. Forrest went on to say that the jury
would be forced under Mr. Foster's argu
ment to acquit Beggs. The acquittal of
Beggs was equivalent to saying that there
was no conspiracy in Camp 20; there beinc
no conspiracy the case, of course, falls
to the ground, and the acquittal of the
other defendants follows as a logical conse
quence. They must look elsewhere, and it
was not difficult to find 12 men who had
some sort of connection with the murder,
outside oi Camp 20. Simonds was one of
them and 11 others were unknown.
TWO CLAN-KA-OAEL FACTIONS.
He alluded to the public prejudice against
his clients and showed how it was to the
financial interest ot some of the principal
witnesses for the State Dinan and the
Carlsons to show that it was a white horse
that took Dr. Cronin away and it was in
the Carlson cottage that he was killed.
Dinan is receiving $100 per week from a
dime museum manager, where the horse is
on exhibition, and the Qarlsons are making
money fast by charging an admission fee to
the cottage. He went on:
Now there is another circumstance. It is
proven that the Clan-na-Qael throughout the
United States is divided into two wines. One
wing of the clan sits in the prisoner's dock,
and the other wing sits in the witness seat.
Bow does the wing that sits in the witness
seat, and which envelopes this entire prosecu-
wun uuw oops ui&i wing ieei lowara my

on South Twenty-first street, now operated by

The defendants in their answer aver that the
original coal road was a narrow gauge, leased
to Joseph Keeling S Co. for the purpose of
taking out coal on the property of Oliver
Ormsby's heirs, but the latter object has long
since been accomplished, and latterly it was
used to take out coal on other property, but
since 18S7 the road has been abandoned by the
lessee and changed to a standard gauge, and is
now operated by the Pittsburg and Lake Erie

sold to many individuals by the trustees, who
have erected houses thereon, and these being

The heirs maintained that if the property is
sold it would be a violation of the trust and re
vert to the original owners. Judge Ewing, in
his opinion, held that the deed of the property
had been in fee simple, and the heirs of the
original owners were not injured any by the
sale. He dismissed the exceptions and ap
proved the sale of the property.
Crlmlonl Court Matters.
In the Criminal Court yesterday the jury in
the case of John Galloway, a clerk at the Alle
gheny Bessemer Steel Company, who, while a
deputy sheriff during strike at Duquesne, shot
and severely wounded William Dnnn, one of
the strikers, returned a verdict of guilty of un

clients and the wing to which its side beloncs?
of the Clan-na Uael or its leaders, betrayed our
comrades to the British Government and sent
our comrades to British prisons by telling who
they were. So yon find that this wing has been
assisting the prosecution, that it has labored
flay and night. And so the other parties have
given their services and their money, and the
revenues of these 15,000 Clan na-Gael through
out the country have been aiding the prosecu-
uuu iu wig case.
THE WITNESSES RIDICULED.
?ow, therefore, you find one wing is on the
Witness stand. Bo you suppose that has not
made a difference J All these men who have
left Ireland for Ireland's good because the
English police are after them they come from
Slilbank, they come from other places, swoop
ing from the prisons of England crying ''Re
venge, revenge, revenge." And you find them
in the witness box, you find them around the
tables urging on the prosecution, and you
come here as a jury to pass upon the facts and
toexamine the motive behind it, and it is the
ancient Irish malice so far as that is concerned.
Now, gentlemen, there is nota witness that
lias been discovered in this case since the
coroner's Jury returned its verdict that Is not
a suspicious witness.
. I never saw such a body of witnesses, and
Jou never-did. They have eyes like the eagle.
Idke owls they see longer and further by night
than by day. Their bearing Is as sensitive as
that of the deer that roams our northern
forests. What extraordinary perceptive fac
ulty, what reasoning powers, what prodigious
memories. Every one of them does something
remarkable, so as to impress upon his mind'tbe
date of the occurrence he testifies to. It was
not some public event which occurred and can
be proved, but they do some remarkable thing
themselves to fix the date. 8uch Intellectual
gymnastics were never before beard of. In the
future time, when the writers of intellectual
science want to get the best illustrations of a
full, accurate, prodigious memory, they will
search the records of the Cronin trial and ln-
2 aire into the memories of the witnesses on be
alt of the Btate.
MnrUTE CntCITMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE.'
Mr. Forrest then proceeded, with much
Earcasm and ridicule, to touch upon the tes
timony of manv witnesses for tlipnmcntrm
claiming that they all acted as if they had
been trained to bolster up a desperate case.
Mrs. Couklin and Milkman llertes and
Mrs. Hoertel testified to occurrences which
they claimed to have witnessed when the
shadows had fallen, yet they were able to
give minute descriptions of the persons con
cerned in them; could tell their complexions
atjd the kind of clothes they wore. The
trouble with this evidence was that it was
Mr, Forrest then took up the expert testi
mony and considered it at great length,
reading many extracts from the verbatim
report of the testimony, to show not only
that the doctors could not determine the
cause of death, but that they could not even
be confident whether or not the wounds
Were inflicted before or after death.
THE STATE'S AXLEGED BLUNDERS.
The Btate, be said, had indicted these
men for the murder ot Dr. Cronin, by
inflicting blows on his head and face. They
must prove that, or the prisoners must be
set free. If they failed, it was their own
fault in making a blunder in the indict
ment. He exclaimed:
I Ull you, gentlemen, we can say that we do
denounce the doctors murder. That has been
done sufficiently, God knows. The whole world
has denounced it, and thundered it at the
.eu ul wy vhcuia xur uiuuius. J.E was a mur
der, a cruel murder; but I tell you, gentlemen
that in your Court House they would, iu the
name of the law commit a legal murder to sus
tain a theory,to sustain a blunder. The whole

There was no evidence, he said that the
blows on Dr. Cronin's head caused death.
They were not severe: the skull was nowhere
fractured. The speaker than took up the

Money invested in

Common sense peo-

for their money, but also set a most excellent example to their
children for not spending their money foolishly. Of all the useful

Just Enlarged to Nearly Double its Former Size,
is brimful with bargains such as Kaufmanns' can show.

gains they are at $5. Any Suit in the Hne now offered at this price.

tails. Hundreds of pretty and lovely styles are
here, however. Prices, $2, $3, $4, $$, 6 and $7.
BIG BOYS' LONG PANT SUITS, SQes 12 to 18
Increasing Business compelled us to move this department into
