William Collier, who came Into proml-
nenco as u comedian by his work with
Reed In "Hoss and Hoss," appeared at
the Academy of Music Saturday night
n his new comedy, "A Hack Number,"
by Edward E. Kidder. It is not an as
sertive comedy of the "Hoss and Hoss"
type. The action moves In a quieter,
smoother groove and the piece alto
gether Is of a more pretentious nature.
Mr. Collier assumes the dual roles of
Benjamin Bennett, a village school
master, and Shiftless Ike, his brother.
human boomerang, in the first
named character Mr. Collier's work has
been described us similar to that of Sol
Smith Russell.
It Is not. Collier will never be a Rus
As Shiftless Ike, Collier was at Jils
best. His natural vivacity and spon
taneity were constantly bubbling forth
and he kept the audience In a merry
mood when on the stage In that char
acter. His Benjamin Bennett was far
from being so well done. Collier does
not successfully assume the role of the
patient, gentle, kind and unobtrusive
school teacher. It Is a phase of charac
ter delineation apparently unsulted to
his temperment and talents. His Shift
less Ike, It Is, that makes the piece en
joyable. Collier was supported by a
fair company which Included George W.
Leslie, James R. Smith, Edward Clarke,
Louise Allen Collier, Belle Bucklln,
Helen Renner and Mattle Barle. The
story told by the comedy Is Interesting
and some of the dialogue really clever.

Jury Rendered a Verdict of Murder In
the First Degree.
Judge Idwuids States from tho Bench
That It Meet. Ills Approval-Prisoner
Docs Not Seem to Kcallza His l ate.
Secrets of the Jury Boom.
Murderer Franz Bezek was convicted
Saturday afternoon of murder In the
first degree, and the almost unanimous
popular opinion Is that the verdict was
a perfectly Just and deserving one.
Not long after 2 o'clock Judge Ed
wards, who was presiding In surety
court In No. 1, was notified that the
Jury had agreed and was jeady to de
liver a verdict. A messenger was sent
post-haste to the county juil, and at 2.45
Bezek, in charge of Deputy Sheriffs
White and Bortree, was marched Into
the prisoner's dock.
The Jury filed alowly into court and
took seats In the box to the right of
the bench. On the faces of every man
of thtm was depicted a solemn look
that was a forecast of the determina
tion at which they had arrived. The
prisoner was led to the defendant's
table; and 'ha looked somewhat pale
and nervous. Every seat in the court
room was occupied and along the walls
listeners were lined three deep. Mar
tin Woyahner sat beside the prisoner
and conversed Interestedly with him.
Judge Edwards ordered 'the verdict
taken, but before this was done At
torney Watson asked the court to order
the stenographer to read the court's
instruction to the Jury In the morning.
After this was done Deputy Clerk of
the Courts Thomas P. Daniels read the
names of the Jurors, and each one an
swered aloud.
"Gentlemen of the Jury, ha-e you
agreed upon a verdict'.'" asked the
clerk. C. W. Klrkpatrlck, the foreman,
answered, "We have." Court Crier
Snyder took the paper oh which was
written the prisoner's doom, passed It
to Clerk Daniels, who handed it to the
.Murder In tho First Degree.
Every neck In ithe vast auditorium
craned forward, and on the face of
Judge Edwards, while he read and re
corded the verdict, were fastened hun
dreds of ieyes as If to anticipate the
ominous announcement. The counte
nance of the Judge was as Imperturb
able and Icy as If It had been
the most commonplace document he
was examining Instead of the fate
ful paper that meant death to
the unfortunate prisoner at the bar.
Not , feature of the Judge's face be
trayed the text of the document. But
only a minute elapsed and court re
turned the paper to the clerk, who ad
dressed the Jurors, "Hearken unto your
verdict as the court hath recorded It."
And stopping for a few seconds to read
the paper, Mr. Daniels resumed, "You
say .In the case la which the common
wealth Is prosecutor and Frank Bezek,
the prisoner at the bar Is defendant,
you find the defendant guilty of murder
In the first degree, so say you all."
"We do," chorused the Jurymen. The
Jury was then polled, one by one, and
lit answer to his name each Juror stood
up and firmly replied, "Guilty of mur
der In the first degree." The prisoner
was yeit unconscious of his doom and
by some dt Is said that even still he Is
not aware that the rope is dangling be
fore him.
Judge Edwards spoke to the Jury as
follows after discharging them from
further attendance upon court:
"Gentlemen, we appreciate the diffi
culties of your position during the week
and you receive the sincere thanks of
the court for the patient consideration
thut you have given to this cuse. Your
verdict meets with the entire upproval
of the court."
Taken Duck tojull.
Bezek was led back to the prisoner's
dock, handcuffed, and, In charge of the
deputy sheriffs, brought back to the
county jail. As he walked across the
court room his step had less of that
jauntlness and his countenance was
more serious than at any time since his
trial began. All during his trial he ap
peared to be as absolutely unconcerned
as If the case In which he was defend
ant was one of the most trivial In the
court calendar. Until he Is sentenced
no one will be allowed to speak to him.
Following the usual order of business
he would be sentenced next Saturday-
Keeper Flanaghan at the county juil
last night stated that Bezek is not less
cheerful, nor is there anything to lndl
cate that his mind Is very much
troubled. Mr. Flanaghan is of the
opinion that Bezek does not know ,his
impending doom.
It Is the universal desire to know how
the Jury stood while they were deliber
ating upon a verdict, Inasmuch as they
were locked up for forty-two hours be
fore they could agree. The Jurors are
reticent about disclosing the Becrets of
the Jury room, but one of them to a
Tribune reporter stated that the way It
stood since the first ballot was taken
was eleven for first degree and one for
second degree. One of the eleven
charged the stubborn Juryman with
being "fixed" and u light ensued. The
enraged man sprang at his accuser's
throat and almost throttled him. Mr,
Devine, the last juror chosen, was the
one who held out for second degree.
Will Ask for a New Trial.
Attorneys Colborn and Watson went
over to Bezek after the verdict was an
nounced and assured him that they
would stand by him and seek every
means at their command to save him
from the gallows. Today they will ap
ply to court for a rule to show causa
why a new trial should, not be granted.
If a new trial shall be refused, the
supreme court will be appealed to. If
after all these recourses the law must
be carried out, it will devolve on Sheriff-elect
Frank II. demons to launch
the murderer Into eternity.

as those of .the First Presbyterian

Contructs with the City.
aw Soys Companies Containing City
Officers Cannot Make Agreements with
the City-Several Such Contracts
May Now Be Nullified.
Trouble Is brewing in the city hall
for certain corporations which are pre
paring to bid or have bid on furnlwhlng
supplies or performing contract work
for the city. Recently several bids for
furnishing supplies to the city have
been recommended by councils und are
now awaiting the signatures of the bid
ders and city officials. There ure two
city ordinances, howes-er, which pro
vide that oiilcers of the city shall not
be Interested in an agreement creating
a debt and that councilmen Interested
n a measure must not vote on the
same. The lutter ordinance prescribes
severe penalty.
In the recently Issued digest of city
laws appear the following:
"Puge i, Section 13, Officers not to be
interested In agreement creating a
debt, etc. No member of councils or
other officer of such city, shall, either
directly or Indirectly, be u party to or
n any manner Interested in any
contract or agreement with such
city for any matter, cause or
thing whatsoever, by which any
liability or Indebtedness is in any way
or manner created against such city.
and if any contract or agreement shall
be made In violation of the foregoing
provision the same shall be null and
void and no action shall ever be main
tained thereon against said city."

When asked if the last mentioned
section did not nullify the section pro
hibiting councilmen from being inter
ested in cKy contracts, City Solicitor
Torrey was disinclined ito give his
opinion to a Tribune reporter. He
finally said that neither ordinance had
any bearing- upon the other; that the
first related especially to contracts, and
that the scope of the second Is wide in
Its relation to councllmanlc measures
and contains a specific penalty. A
perusal of the two excerpts will show
that the ctty solicitor's real opinion Is
that no company In which a council
man Is Interested has a right to make
a contract with the city.
Mr. Torrey refrained from a detuiled
consideration of the matter on the
ground that he would soon be obliged
to render an official opinion on the sub
There are at present several con
tracts In the office of the city controller
awaiting execution, but which will be
affected by the ordinances mentioned
Mayor Connell is of the opinion that If
a member of council mnkes known his
Interest in a bidding company or cor
poratlon, such action prevents the con
tract being nullified. City Controller
Wldmayer and Mr. Torrey hold to the
opposite opinion.
Several councilmen are said to have
silent interests In paving, building and
other contracting firms, which for
years have held municipal contracts
Two such firms now have agreements
with the city, but It Is anticipated 'that
the present consideration of the matter
will result In a more restricted con
tract-letting policy In the future.
