New York Bond Market Dull
By Attociatcd Preia.
New York, Nov. 30.—The bond mar
ket opened dull and listless on the New
York Stock Exchange to-day, the, first
full day of trading of any sort since
the exchange was closed on July 30.
Unusual interest was manifested among
biokers who thought the two-hour ses
sion of Saturday did' not afford a full
test of conditions and feared there
might b« a general tendency to liqui
date by foreign holders.
Nothing of this sort developed during
the first quarter hour of trading. For
a full minute after the opening the
ticker remained silent. Five minutes
after the opening gong only nine bonds,
with a face value of |9,000, had boen
sold. The market appeared to be in
a state of stagnation.
U. 8. Steel 5s rose % to 99%; South
ern Pacific Convertible 4s and Distil
lers' Securities 5s were off %, selling at
80% and 55'/ a , respectively. \Veating
house Convertibles declined 3 points
and Central Pacific. 4s declined 3'/ a
All fears of a flood of liquidation
from abroad seemed to vannsh within
t'he first quarter of an hour. Indications
were that the second day of restricted
trading in bonds would be much like
As the OBV progressed the 'bulk of
the trading was in amalll lots, but occa
sionally twenty or thirty bo mis changed

Altogether 4 6 different issues were
traded in up, to noon. At that time
sales approximated $550,000.
Coffee Exchange Reopens
New York, Nov. 30. —The New York
Coffee Exchange reopened to-dav for un
restricted trading afteir having been
dark for four months as the result of
the European war situation.
Opening prices were 130 to 149
points below the closing bids of July
30, but they were also 7 to 14 points
above the quotations made through the
liquidating committee on Saturday. The
market's tone wns steady and there
was little coffee for sale. Offerings were
readily absorbed by* houses with Euro
pean connections. It was evident that
Europe was attracted to the local mar
ket by the low prices.

English War Vessels Causing Oreat
of American Vessels, Say Wireless
Operators of Ancon, at New York
New York, Nov. 30.—At least
twelve British warships are now pa
trolling the Atlantic between Now
York and tlhe Panama Canal, sweeping
the seas with their wireless, crowding
ordinary commercial radios from the
air, and keeping close check on all
forms of shipping, according to wire
less operators on the steamship Ancou,
that arrived here to-day from Cristo
bal. The wireless activity of these war
vessels, the operators said, is causing
great inconvenience to the commercial
work of American vessels as the high
powered waves of the men-of-war are
heard continually in utter disregard of
"These warships," the Ancon's
operators said, "pay no attention to
the rules governing wireless operations.
With their high power apparatus they
cut into the middle of a message ami
absolutely disregard ail requests to
keep out. We have no means of iden
tifying the ships as they use code ex
clusively—code that appears to be
made up of a combination of numbers.
We counted twelve different warships
that jaiimi ed our wireless on the way
The Aneon brought from the canal
zone ten members of the Congressional
committee on appropriations who have
been making an official inspection of
t'he great waterway. The party left
New York on November 7, and on the
outward trip, when about thirty miles
out of Colon, they passed the British

have been scouring the seas for weeks
for tie Germans.
Russia's forces, it is reported unof
ficially to-day, have at last reach «'
Cracow, the Austrian fortress in Nortt
western Galicia near the boundaries oi
Russia and Germany. An Italian cor
respondent at the front states that Cra
cow is now being bombarded by heavy
Russian siege guns and that one of the
suburbs is in flames. The capture of this
fortress has been one of the main ob
jectives of Russia's campaign against
Austria, on the theory that its fall, to
gether with that of Przemysl now under
siege, would mean Russian ascendancy
in that part of Austria which lies to
the north of the Carpathian mountains.
Other than this report, there was lit
tle new information concerning the sit
uation in the east. The main question,
in the opinion of London, was whether
the German army which struck at the
Russian center would be able to extri
cate itself and fall back to the border
without a disaster. The Russian army
operating from Lodz is striking a heavy
blow at the main Gorman force, but it
is probably that some time must elapse
before this phase of the campaign in
the east is brought to a close.
Opinions differ sharply as to the in
tentions of Germany concerning opera
tions in the west. It is reported that
Germany is about to embark on a new
offensive movement; that the allies arc
about to assume the offensive, that the
German line has been weakened and
that a new German army is being rush
ed into Flanders. In view of these con
flicting statements it is impossible to
discern even the probabilities of the
near future. Fighting at present ap
parently is confined to operations in the
Russia's campaign against Turkey
likewise has reached a period of in
activity. The latest report from the
Russian army of the Caucasus is to the
effect that no movements of importance
are under way.

FIRST JURY PICKED
FOR SMITH CASE
Coatlaned From Flrat Pace.
in his seat, and his counsel pressed the
motion, originally made on Juno 12,
last, to have the defendant's mental
condition passed upon first.
Agree to Pass on Sanity First
Mr. Weiss argued that his client is
not mentally able to set up a defense
to the criminal charge. After some par
leying counsel for the defense and Dis
trict Attorney M. E. N't roup agreed to
frame an issue by which the question
of sanity first would be passed upon
by a jury of twelve men.
In the interim, however, the defend
ant again was directed to stand up.
He hesitated, looked about aimlessly
and tJieu jnumblftd: "I'll keep seat
"He sayis he will stay seated,'' put
in the District Attorney, directing his
remarks to the judges."
"Let him stand up," demanded
Smith did not heed the demand.
Then tihe court, Smith's counsel and
the County Prosecutor simultaneously
directed him to get upon his feet. This
time he complied.
\\ ith the issue fraimed and every
thing ready for the selection of the
jury that mil pass upon Smith's men
tal condition, the defendant's counsel
insisted upon the right to examine
each juror on whether he had framed
or expressed an opinion as to the guilt
or innocence of the defendant.
Seeks Bight to Question
When the court ruled out that part
of the questioning, Mr. Weiss read
from his individual legal brief what
sounded like an appeallate court ruling
sustaining his attitude, saving that it
' came under the act of the Legisla
ture of 1860."
"What case is that?" asked Judge
It is no case. It is our conten
tion," said Mr. Weiss.
Judge McCarrell could not refrain
from smiling and he was joined bv at
torneys who also thought' the incident
"It sounded somewhat like the deliv
erance of the Supreme Court," said
"I thought Your Honors -would rec
ognize it as such," added Mr. Weiss.
''No, it didn't sound like that to
me, quickly put in Judge Kunkel.
Again the attorneys at the bar laughed.
Three Jurors Challenged
Three of the jurors, examined while
the panel was ibeing drawn, wre chal
lenged. Allen Felker, of West London
derry township, and Everett C. Brinton,
of Susquehanna township, both said
they have fixed opinions as to the men
tal condition of the accused. Besides,
Brinton said his hearing is defective.
William J. Daylor, a Steelton merchant,
''l have a fixed opinion. I believe
all persons who commit such crimes aro
of unsound mind."
To Call Many Witnesses
The hearing on the mental condition
of tile defendant, will, it is expected,
last several days. Half a hundred wit
nesses will bo called, including alien
ists. For the Commonwealth Dr. T. S.
Blair, of this city, and Dr. Howard
Phillips, formerly a specialist in Kirk
brixle sanitarium, will testify while in
addition to many of the accused's ac
quaintances the defense will have Dr.
Walter 0. Bowers, of the Schuylkill
Haven County Hospital for the Insane,
and Dr. C. R. McKinniss, formerly of
the State Hospital for the Criminal In
sane in Norristown and now superinten
dent of the Pittsburgh City Hospital
for the Feeble Minded.
The hearing begun to-day is a part
of the general murder trial but the jury
chosen this morning will in no way
have anything to do with the criminal
charge. If Smith is found to bo sane
now, the trial on the murder charge will
go on in the same manner as though
the insanity plea had not been set up.
The History of the Crime
A firo in the Bush cottage in Ingle
nook on Wednesday night, December
17, last, led to the discovery of the
murder of the aged grandfather for
which Smith has been indicted. Bush
was supposed to have had about $3,-
000 in cash in the house. It was
missing. The cottage was, for several
years prior to that time, the home of
the grandfather and grandson. The
murdered man's body was pulled from
the burning building by members of
an auto party, after his feet had been
Smith, who now ig 25 years old', was
apprehended by the Pittsburgh police a
few days after the crime, lie was ar
rested on a charge of carrying a pistol
and later was identified as the man
wanted here on the murtler charge. At
the time ot' his arrest $2,827.15 was
found in his pockets, together with a
railroad annual pass, which had be

When Knights Were Bold
When knighbs were clad 'in comploto
armor from top to toe it was essential
that they should "bear some sign by
which their followers could distinguish
them in battle, and this was the func
tion of their armorial bearings. Knights
who omitted to wear their own arms
ran considerable risk, and it is related
that at t'ho battle of Baunockburn the
last of the De Clares owed his death
to his omission to wear his bearings.
He was slain unrecognized, whereas had
he been known he would have been held
prisoner for the ransom or a as hostage.

1 ennsylvania Protective Union, which
is said to have had charge of the pri
mary and general campaign of Senator
Penrose for re-election, to-day filed his
report of receipts and expenditures in
the State Department. It was expected
that in view of the fact that Mr. Cam
pion is likely to bo called as a witness
in the event of the United States Sen
ate ordering an investigation of the
money expended in Senator Penrose's
behalf that the Campion account would
present many interesting features, but,
such is hardly the case. His expendi
tures, beyond $5,000 given to the Re
publican State Committee, are all for
ordinary expenses. Ho collected $47,-
679.95 and expended $ 17,067.72, leav
ing a balance of $612.23.
The largest contribution was $5,000
from Joseph R. Grundy, made up of
separate contributions, including SI,BOO
from W Parke Moore and $2,500 from

butions ranged "from $lO to SIOO.
Mostly Ordinary Expenses

Other expense accounts filed to-day
are as follows:
Romaine C. Hassrick, treasurer Anti-
