Why John Graham's Attorney Think No
Case Caa be Matotataed WW tbe
Supreme 'Coa'rt Xevetse the
Chicago, December 24. A. S. Trade is
of the opinion that the State will be unable
to maintain its charge against John
Graham, of attempting to tribe the Cronin
jnry. He is attorney ier Graham, and con
trary to the -usual custom, fully outlined
the theory of the defense in the Evening
"When the Cronla trial began," said he,
"it was, of course, seen to be a yery import
ant case. The lives of five -men were in
jeopardy. Consequently a juror suscepti
ble of purchase wonld be a valuable com
modity. Well, this fact was appreciated
by the man who subsequently was the first
to squeal, Solomon, a Hebrew bailifi. This
man, scenting a fortune in the air, began at
once the formation of jury trust, ot which he
made himself President, Secretary, Treas
urer and Hoard of Directors.
"This trust was to get a man upon whom
it conld defend on the jury and then open
negotiations with a man who, for some
strange reason, was supposed to have a vital
interest in the whole affair and to sell this
trust juror to hia for a bie consideration,
"With this idea, the Pooh Bah of the
trust went to work. Several men who were
supposed to have intimate relations with
the man who, as I said, was in some strange
way thought to have a vital interest in tbe
-whole affair were approached. "With none
was the envoy of the trust successful, and
he went to John Graham, who was tbonght
to be on intimate terms with this man. Hat
they fonnd that wouldn't work either. John
Graham had nothing to do with the case.
He is perfectly willing to waive the formal
ity of a jury and be tried before the judge
alone, so confident is he of the outcome."
Attorney Brown, who has charge of the
case of Frank WoodrufEhas created a sen
sation by claiming to be in possession of a
local point that will secure a reversal by the
Supreme Court of the recent verdict in the
Cronin ease. This point is the discovetyof
a precedent which will compel the Supreme
Court to render a decision favorable to
Woodruff in his petition for release under
habeas corpus on the -ground that he had
not been admitted to trial within the
third term of court after his imprisonment.
In the preceding decision, the Supreme
Court declares that the three branches of
the Criminal Court are as distinct each from
the other as the County Clerk is from the
Circuit Court. Mr. Brown has hunted np
several decisions in which the Supreme
Courts have held that one court cannot, of
its own volition, transfer to another distinct
and independent court a case already pend
ing before it. Mr. Brown .argnes that this
is precisely what was done by Judge Horton
in the beginning of the ease.

Major Burke, who ran away with several

of money, and is likely to have a chance to
spend it there, so Honduras is pleased. He
cannot be brought back, as there is no ex

Nev Oblkaxs, December 24. Some
weeks ago the grand jury of the Parish of
Orleans indicted Major E. A. Burke, ex
State Treasurer of Louisiana, ex-Director
General of the World's Exposition at New
Orleans, and who was the political leader
of Louisiana for years, on 13 charges of
forgery, embezzlement and misappropria
tion of public funds. Major Burke was
cbargedVwith taking from the State vaults
and applying to his own nse $379,000 worth
of bonds belonging to the State agricul
tural and seminary funds, and over-issuing
and selling 5400,000 of the 3 per cent State
At the time of the indictments, Major
Burke was in London, negotiating for the
sale of the mining property id Honduras;
conceded to him bv Piesident Bogran, of
that Bepublic, the lands running along the
Guayape river for 21 miles.
THE FUGITIVE AX LAST LOCATED.
Notwithstanding the indictments. Major
Burke remained in London, organizing and
floating his Central American Mining Com
pany, and seemed to occupy a high position
in financial circles t here. In the meantime
the State authorities of Louisiana applied to
the Secretary of State for extradition
papers against Burke. There was some little
hitch over these, and a consequent delay.
'When it was announced that the papers
were granted, or were likely to be, Burke
suddenly disappeared from Loudon. Since
then he had been lost sight of altogether.
He was reported to be in Belgium,in Spain,
in Africa and in half a dozen other coun
tries. The Louisiana authorities announced that
they would pursue him wherever he went,
but no one,not even his closest Jriends,knew
bis true whereabouts. The following letter
received to-day by a hanker of this city
from an official ot Honduras at Puerto
Cortez in that country unveils the mystery:
TELL SUPPITED TOE MONET.
Pttebto Coetez, December 17.
Burke has arrived in Segueclagalpa, the capj
ital ot Honduras, and is there now. He came
by the Hamburg line to Jamaica, from there to
Colon, thence to Panama and so on to Amapola,
on the Pacific coast of Honduras. It Is said he
has $250,000 or $300,000 with him, and that he is
going to his mines.
It seems from this that Burke has run the
gauntlet safely, and escaped the Louisiana
authorities and all extradition papers.
There is no extradition treaty with Hon
duras, and he cannot be touched there.
Moreover, he is a close personal friend of
President Bogran, whom he hasTisited be
fore, and will be protected by him. He
has built several public halls there,
and promised to establish a technical
and mechanical school and make a number
of other improvements. As he is very well
provided with money and backed by a
number ot big English capitalists, and as
his concession is reputed to be very valu
able, he is likely to play an important part
in Central America, like Meiggs aad Win
slow in South America.

OUR BEST WISHES
;AMERRT CHRISTMAS" ::: :::
' C. . ::: ::: A HAPEY NEW YfiAR
to our thousands of friends and patrons, which, of course,
means the entire population of these great cities and "
surrounding towns, is our public message to-day.
Not only- our wishes, however, but our sincere
thanks we hereby render to all the people for the gener

Our Holiday season has been a glorious triumph.
Never before has old Santa Claus been as good and lib
eral. We've sold enough gifts during- the past two weeks
to make the whole town one picture of happiness. And
they were no trashy gifts, either, but useful and substan
tial articles. This .is as it should be. Of course, our
greatly reduced Holiday sale prices have been the means
that enabled many a man or woman to buy for- a most
trifling outlay of pash. a very handsome present,
v Thus our own efforts, coupled-with public co-opera- ?
tion, will be the source of the happiness of countless
But the end is not yet
New Year's, the day for reciprocity presents, is not ,f
far off. The recipients on Christmas will be the donors
on New Year's. If you belong to this class, remembje?
that, for your special benefit, our Great Holiday Sale' will
continue until the last day of the old year: This, will
give you ample time and opportunity to repay the kind
ness and good will of your generous friends.
