the periods of desertion ranging from
three weeks to three months. When

on one of the later occasions, she de
clined that the only way she could ex
plain her conduct was thai she was
bewitched. He also complained that
she called him an Kuglish devil nmri
I ha u a hundred limes, and frequently
beat him. As an evidence or her bad
temper, he told that she drove away
fourteen different servant girls in live
years. He was a widower and she a
widow when they married. Tho mar

WAYLAND CASE ARGUED.
Major Warren Attacked the Indict
ment Which Was Found Against
Him on Several Grounds.
Only one of the more Important
quarler sessions cases on yesterday's
argument list was reached. This was
I he case of thn commonwealth against
S. K. Wayliind, charged with obstruct
ing Justice, In which an effort is being
made to quflsh tho Indictment. Jlnjor
Kverett Warren and Joseph O'Brien
nre attorneys for Mr. Wayliind. Tho
commonwealth Is represented by Dis
trict Attorney W. It. Lewis and K. C.
Newconib, of counsel for the Municipal
Major Warren opened the arguments
with a vigorous attack on tho methods
pursued by tho Municipal league In tts
prosecution of Mr. Wayland. He said
lie had nothing but commendation for
the reform work the league has accom
plished and Is accomplishing, but he
was constrained to say that their
methods In tho Wayland case were il
legal, Improper and unfair.
After reciting the facts. Major War
ren proceeded to tear the indictment
Into all kinds of shreds.
It was presented lo the grand jury
without any previous binding over, he
said, and there is no supreme court
decision that will permit of this, while
there are any number of them express
ly forbidding it. Tho declaration of
rights says there shall bo no present
ment without a previous binding
over except in cases of flagrant
vice or crimes of public noto
riety. It is not to be exercised In any
ordinary crime. Refusing to answer
some questions at an aldermanlc hear
ing, it was contended, was not a fla
grant vice or crime of public noto
riety. The offense of obstructing justice, if
anything, is where a person binders a
legal proceeding by being obstreperous
or contumacious. Mr. Wayland was
neither of these, it was held.
The failure of the commonwealth's
lepresentatlves to include In the mat
ter of tlio indictment tne replies of Mr.
Wayland its well as the questions ask
ed him, was alleged by Major Warren
to be an evasion and violation of the
order of tho court, and, in consequence,
a fatal defect. This omission, it was
further stated, does the defendant a
gross injustice as it makes it difficult if
not Impossible for him to appeal the
case on the constitutional question
raised by his replies, the burden of
which was that he relied in ills re
fusals on the bill of rights.
Tlio proceedings before the alderman
were assailed for various alleged
irregularities. It was flagrantly Irregu
lar, tho major contended, because of
the attempt of the magistrate to hour
(livers causes at one and the same
time. Some of the defendants were
being tried for bribery and some for
corrupt solicitation, and the law makes
these two separate and distinct crimes.
It was manifestly a legal Impossibility,
it was argued, for Hie alderman, sim
ultaneously, to try one man for ono
crime and another for n toally differ
ent crime. It was also charged that a
fatal mistake was made in not nmrtmt
tlvely setting forth the magistrate's
Tho main ground for moving the
quashing of the indictment, Major
Warreh stated, was that tho "excep
tion" provision of the constitution In
regard to witnesses in bribery cases
not being entitled to avail themselves
of the protection of the bill of rights,
Is not self-executing and the only law
passed by the legislature to carry It
Into effect makes it apply specifically
to hearings before trial judges. An al
derman assuredly Is not a trial judge,
the major averred. The bill of rights
is therefore In full force In nn alder
man's court, it was argued.
But even If this contention was not
good, Major Warren went on to say,
the bill of rights would still stand free
from the operation of tlio exception In
question, for tho bill of rights of the
Federal, government has this protect
ing clause, and the constitution of the
Fulled Stales says that no state shall
puss any law that will abridge or In
fringe the constitutional rights of tho
Individual. "Tho Fourteenth amend
ment, which was passed to protect the
black man In tho South, will protect
the whlto man In tho North, and we
will seeuro to our client this protection,
If wo have to go to tlio Supreme court
of tho I'nltcd States," declared Major
Warren with dramatic force. Ho con
cluded with tho 'declaration that the
Municipal leaguo would not bo per
mitted to override tlio constitution ot
the United States to give Alderman
Fuller authority to send S. K. Wuylnnd
to jail as a criminal and to allow tho
league's attorneys to put thumb screws
on the free-born citizens of Lacka
It was approaching 6 o'clock when
Major J,'arren concluded, and tho
other arguments were in consequence
put over until this morning.
The motion to quash tlio indictment
in tlio case against Mrs. Annlo Ames,
of Forest City, was argued at length
by Mr, O'Brien for tlio defendant, and
District Attorney Lewis for the com
monwealth, Mrs. Amos was prosecuted
by her husband, but a nol pros, was
entered. The next day Mrs. Knapp, the
wifo of the man In the case, hud Mrs,
Air, O'Brion argued that court can
abiito a prosecution, if, in Its dlscro.
Hon, tlio ends of justice aro served,
and the court by accepting tho nol
pros. In tho lirst case, practically dor
dared that tho ends ot justice were
served by abating the prosecution.
This being tlio case, tho now indict
ment should be quashed.
District Attorney Lewis opposed the
motion on tlio ground that It would
not bo serving tlio ends of justico to
have Dr. Knapp languishing in Jail and
the woman, who was equally guilty In
the eyes of the law, going about scott

When the applause created by the
graduates' entry had subsided the col
lege glee club played an overture, and
tho exercises proper then began.
James Gerald Cullon was the first
speaker of the night. His subject
was "National Sentiment," and ho
treated It in a manner both careful
and thoughtful. There is no better Il
lustration in the history of time, of
national sentiment, thnn In America,
where true love of country prevails,
he claimed. In part, he said:
"The ardent enthusiasm which is
tlio well spring of great deeds is
everywhere found in this country. The
gloiy of the ago is the universal sen
timent for suffering humanity. Sen
timents of peace, which make rulers
hesitate before throwing down the
gunge of war, sentiments of patriot
ism, and sentiments of industry, are
th" sentiments which give life and
views of a greater life to all tho
countries in which they prevail."
"THE IDEAL REPUBLIC."
"The Ideal Republic." was tho sub
ject of John Aloysius Ruddy's ora
tion. One of the reasons which, in
his opinion, makes this the Ideal re
public ot the world is the national
combining of the great qualities which
taken alone were not enough to pre
serve tho giant republics which have
long since decayed.
He declared no nation's political or
ganization is better fitted to stand
the wear and ravages of time than
that of tills country founded as It Is
upon the Christian principle of the
equality of men.
In tho absence of the vocal quar
tette which were down upon the pro
gramme for a selection, Joseph and
Richard Foote played a mandolin and
guitar number In a most acceptable
Aloysuls Francis Colligan recited
with considerable dramatic fervor, "A
Noble Revenge," and Thomas Murlln
Jordan then stepped forward to speak
entertainingly upon "A Retrospect,"
He gave a brief resume of what has
been done during tho last hundred
years In this country, showing briefly
and concisely tho wonderful progress
wrought, and diow a glowing picture
of what can he done In the future. He
declared that tho spirit nf tho Nine
teenth century In -one of worldllness
nnd unrest, but also of mechanical
greatness, popular education and uni
His address was a brilliant one, and
formed u fitting valedictory to thn
splendid oratorical efforts of the night.
After tlio playing nf the march,
"Boston Ideals," by tho college gleo
club, tho conferring of degrees took
place, BrothPf Gordon reading aloud
the names of tlio recipients. Then
followed the presentation nf commer
cial diplomas. The degrees nre con
ferred by tho Rock Hill college, Mary
land. HON. STAPUBTON'S ADDRKSS.
Hon. U D. Stapleton, city attorney
of Brooklyn, N. Y., the speaker of tho
night, was then Introduced to the
graduates and audience. "I am .at a
loss to understand why an orator from
Tammany Hall should bo here," ho de
clared, "as tho only art in which that'
institution Is supposed to bo proficient
in tho urt of mlsgovernmont," &
He took as the text of his address
the golden rule, "Do unto others as you
would have them do unto you," ami
gnvo tlio graduates an amount of
wholesome practical advice, telling
them to bo guided by tho examples of
great men who have made this coun
try, "Today there are great facilities for
education. Compare your opportuni
ties with those afforded the men who
have blazoned the history of this land,"
ho urged. "You should recollect every
duty Is Important and no fact inslg
nlllcant. Tho American boy, the
Catholic- American boy, must not take
rcfugo behind the assertion that he is
handicapped by his religion.
"In every branch of life In tills coun
try the Cathollo young man has the
same opportunity as tlio professors ot
every other religion. You must not
forget that your obligations to learning
do not cease now. You are but begin-
