Annls nt the Bnysldu Yacht club.
The crowd In and nround tho court
house was the greatest that has been
seen at any stage of the trial, and ex
citement and expectation as to tho
verdict led to the making of hundreds
of wagers and prophecies.
General Peter C. Halns and his wife,
parents of the accused, as well as his
brothers, Major John 1'. Halns and
Thornton Ilnlns, bore themselves
cheerfully, though tho mother of Cap
tain Ilalus was almost prostrated by
emotion. All confidently predicted that
the verdict would be "not guilty, and
they said they had made arrangements
to take the army officer to their home

found guilty by the jury In the federal
Assistant District Attorney Akerman
asserted that the defense had admit
ted that Savannah fixes the price of
naval stores and that enormous prof

raising of rosin grades.
Judge Adams' line of defense was a
surprise. Ho asserted that nil acts
about which the evidence had been
Introduced took place cither in New
York or Florida and that the govern
ment could not claim any act had been
committed in Georgia. He declared
the prosecution was not bona fide, but
was the rosult of personal and busi
ness vludlctlvenoss. He nttacked the
government's special agent, J. P. Mar
tin, saying ho had no moral, ethical or
legal right to "orphan" letters obtain
ed in New Orlenus, and continued:
"I do not mean to say that Senator
Taliaferro was a party to stealing tho
letters. Ho was not there. But the
fact remains that the letter evoutunlly
got into his hnnds."
General Meldrlm attacked the "con

Trowbridge Tells of Murder of
Six Pastors Near Adana.
New York, May 11. A letter from
Mrs. Stephen Van It. Trowbridge of
Brooklyn, a missionary of the Ameri
can board who was at Adana with her
husband at the time of the disturb
ances there, gives additional details of
the street lighting In the mission quar
ter. She says:
"On Wednesday morning two of tho
missionaries, Mr. Lawson Chambers
and Mr. Gibbons, left the mission
building to look about the city. We
heard no more of them until midnight,
when tho English consul found them
at the serai, having been taken there
for safety. They had found them
selves In the midst of a lighting mob
In the market and were rescued, by
some one who saw that they were for
eigners. "About noon lirlug began about this
section n tho city, a number of Ar
menian men and boys shooting Into
the air and Into the streets from roof
tops. The son of a Moslem khoju was
killed, and his body was dragged
through the streets by the Moslems to
excite their people. Shooting continued
all day, and fires broke nut lu many
parts of the city.
"Hovaztan Effcndl, who graduated
last year from Marash Theological
seminary, was killed In front of the
school door by the mob before the sol
diers arrived. Ho had In his arms the

Protestant church had nothing to cat

without sulllclent food or rest for one
day, and they are becoming exhausted.
"Six pastors from Hadjin, Sis, Zora

RUSSIA'S CABINET STAYS.
Czar Comes to an Agreement
St. Petersburg, May 11. A solution
of tho cabinet crisis whereby Premier
Stolypin and his colleagues in the cab
inet retain their posts was arranged nt
a conference between the premier nnd
M. Stolypin returned fo St. Peters
burg from Tsarskoe-Selo, bringing an
lmpcrlnl rescript expressing the confi
dence of tho monarch in the ministers
and his gratitude for their services
and explaining the motives leading to
the rejection of the naval staff bill.
Tho crisis was solved in a manner
peculiarly Itusslan. The emperor re
fused to sign tho bill" providing for a
naval staff because he considered it
an invasion of his prerogative, and he
declined also to accept the resignations
of tho cabinet, orderiug the ministers
to remain at their posts. The latter
nfter reiterating their representations
of the Impossibility of rendering use
ful services under these conditions do
elded that their duty, according to
Itussian precedento, was to continue in
their present offices.
Under tho new conditions the minis
try cannot bo considered stable, it
being pointed out that the prerogative
of tho'douma Is merely to vote money,
nnd a dissolution is expected at no
distant date. Falling to secure tho ac
ceptance of his resignation, M. Stoly

peror for nn extension of his vacation,
from which ho only recently returned,

Heavy Sentences, Landed
at Pittsburg Prison.
Pittsburg. May ll.-Jmmw II. Boyle,
under u life sentence, und his wife,
Helen Boyle, under a sentence of
twenty-live years for the kidnaping of
Willie Wliltla of Sharon, were brought,
here by Sheriff Chess from Mercer,
Pa and lodged In the Western peni
tentiary. That the threats of a double suicide
mack' by Mrs. Boyle were not mero
Idle words was shown when n razor
which had been secreted In his neck
tie was taken from Itoyle, and it was
found that Mrs. Boyle had taken what
she says was "enough morphine to kill
Mrs. Boyle got the poison from a wo
rn., u in a cell adjoining hers who is
addicted to morphine nnd has been
supplied with It during her imprison
ment. Mrs. Boyle was rendered par
tially unconscious and was made very
sick. As a further precaution. Sheriff
Chess took from Mrs. Boyle three hat
pins and removed all the glasses she
had In her cell.
Carrying out his threat to expose "n
wealthy relative of the Whitla fam
ily" as tho alleged principal lu the kid
naping of the Whitla boy, Boyle gave
out the following signed statement:
"The complete history of the kidnap
ing of Willie Whitla nnd what led up
"On the morning of , between
the hours of , Dan Beoble, Jr., was
found dead on the sidewalk in front of
.ffeiMflT"er block, in Youngstown, and
over the prostrate form was Harry
Forker of Sharon, Pa., holding in his
right hand a package of letters that
wao gathered from the sidewalk near
the dead body of Mr. Iteeble.
"As he was about to depart he was
Intercepted by the writer nnd a man
now dead, Dan Shay, a saloon keeper,
of Youngstown, O.
"In Mr. Porker's hurry to leave the
scene he failed to find two envelopes
that contained four letters. Tho same
were picked up by Mr. Shay and given
to the writer.
"The letters were written by a lady,
two from a party In New York state
and the others from Cleveland, O. At
a later date Mr. Porker was apprised
of the fact that the writer held these
letters In Ills possession.
"A letter was immediately sent to
the writer by Mr. Porker stntlng that
he, Mr. Porker, would like to hnvo a
personal talk with the writer, which
meeting took place a day or so after.
Mr. Porker acknowledged he would
pay a sum of money for the possession
of said letters.
"The amount, not being considered
sufficient, was refused, and from that
jday on and up until March. 1H0S, tho
I writer on tho pretext of exposing the
j letters and tho coincidence of Mr.
Porker being discovered bending over
the prostrate form of Mr. Heebie re
Icelved at different times amounts of
I money from Mr. Porker to remain
"About six months ago I met Mr.
Forker and Informed him that unless
I received .$5,000 I would hold the se
cret no longer.
"He then Informed me thnt it was
Impossible for him to get that amount
of money, but some time in April,
1009, ho wns to come in possession of
n certain amount of money and would
then turn some over to mo.
"On my leaving Sharon on March 12,
1009, I proceeded to Cleveland, O., nnd
on tho same evening I addressed to
Forker a letter, which rend as follows:
Mr. Harry Forker:
Dear Sir I have decided not to wait
any longer In regard to tho money propo
sition, and If I don't hear from you Boon
tliero will be some exposing. Sincerely
yours, J. J, BAILEY, Cleveland, O.
"On March 1(1, 11K)), I received the
Friend Bailey You knew tho circum
stances and tho promise I made you
when you left hero, but If you are really
desperately In need of nionoy as you pro
fess to be I will outline a little plan
which with your co-operation can be very
successfully carried out viz, the abduc
tion of J. P. Whltln's eon. 1 can ar
rango to have boy brought to Warren,
O., due there at 11:18 with escort.
"I went to Warren and remained in
the vicinity of tho depot.
"About ten minutes" later boy and
escort arrived. I brought the boy to
Nlles, 0., from there to Ashtabula nnd
then to Cleveland, On March 22 I re
ceived a letter from Mr. Porker stat
ing that some one hnd informed Mr.
Whitla that they had recognized his
boy on March 18 In Nlles, O., and that
James Boyle of Sharon was with him;
ulso that Mr. Whitla was afraid to
illvulire in, .iformutlon for fear the
boy might come to some harm and
telling mo to be careful and be on tho
alert nnd that when I received the
money to immediately surrender these
Youngstown letters, to send same to
him, Forker, at Sharon, and on Tues
day, April 23, to return half of tho
ransom money to him (Mr. Porker) nnd
he would turn over tho same to the
party who took Willie Whitla to War
ren. "Upon learning that my nnme was
mentioned in connection with the case,
I made It a point to meet Mr. Whitla
in Cleveland, showed him the letter
that passed between Mr. Forker nnd
myself; nlso the Youngstown letters,
nnd Mr. Whitla promised that if I
would substantiate the truth of the
Youngstown letters he would see there
would be no prosecution.
"I then surrendered through Mr.
Whitla all the letters that were In my
possession, und (lie world knows the
"This unfortunate woman was duped
from Hturt to finish lu regard to the
boy, und I was duped from the mo
ment 1 left the letters go Into Mr.
Whltln's possession. This story Is ns
true us there Is u God above' us."
When Hurry Porker was seen nt
Sharon and asked regarding the state
ment Issued by Boyle ho said:
"I know absolutely nothing of this
case. There is nothing to it. 1 only
know Boyle as I know other members
of his family, as residents of Sharon.
I have never had any dealings with
him. I do not know the woman who
is said to be his wife.
"I cun conceive of no reason why
Boyle should make such a statement,
unless it be to get even with the Whit
la family for his prosecution follow
ing the abduction. Boyle never showed
me any letters. Boyle did not see me
in Cleveland. The whole story Is a
willful, malicious and slanderous He."
J. P. Whltln, father of the kidnaped
boy, who Is 'alleged in James Boyle's
statement to have accepted the letters
Boyle said he had und which he said
belonged to Hurry Porker, denies ab
solutely that any such deal with Boyle
Mr. Whitla denied that ho had seen
Boyle or talked with him In Cleveland
prior to his son's return und the ar
rest' of Boyle.
"The whole statement," said he, "is
a willful and malicious He."

Big Gas Bag Explodes as Dirigible Is
About to Land.
Jackson, Neb., Mny 11. Army bal
loon No. 12 arrived here from Fort
Omaha after a lllght of seven hours.
In making n landing the gas bag ex
ploded a few feet above the ground
and was destroyed, but neither Cap

who made the lllght, wiisj seriously
Lieutenant Ware declared thnt aside
from the destruction of the gas bag
the flight was a success. Captain
Chandler believes that while at a high
altitude the gas bag became charged
with static electricity and that on
reaching the ground contact with tho
earth caused an arc to form, thus pro
ducing nn electric spark, which set
fire to the bag.
Tho ascension nt Port Omaha was

Frank Watterson, of Ilawley, was
arrested by Deputy Sheriff N. H. Spen
cer on Saturday. Detective Spencer
went to Hnwley after his man, and, af-
a lively chase, captured him there. It j
appears that during his residence in J
Honesdale, where lie worked in'a glass i
cutting shop, Watterson boarded at tho
riynn hotel on South Main street. A 1
short time ago he left town leaving a .
board bill amounting to thirty dollars I
unpaid. Proprietor I'lynn had a war-1
rant issued and Watterson was arrested I
and given a hearing before Justice of1
tins Pence W. II. Ham. The matter j
was Hiibhciiuently amicably adjusted be-!
I ween the parties. I
Mrs. Susan Ilirt, of White Mills,)
was arrested by olllccr N. B. Spencer
on Friday last and brought to Hones
dale the same evening, for a hearing be
fore Justice of thu Peace, It. A. Smith,
on a charge of cruelty to animals. On
Wednesday Mrs. Hirt's husband went
to Victor Mizler's place the Half-Way
House and traded horses, receiving in
exchange a horse and two and a half
dollars "boot money." When lie re
turned to his home that evening his wife
claimed that he had the worst of the
deal and so she took the animal back
to Mizler's place. The latter was not
at home when she arrived there and
Mrs. Hirt left the moifey in the house,
and tied the horse to a post near tho
roadway. The animal was without food
or shelter for a number of hours, and
Detective Spencer being notified ar
rested Mrs. Hirt, who was fined $10 by
Justice Smith and costs, the total
amounting to $25.
Last Sunday was Mothers'
Day. All over the civilized world
from Honesdale around the world
and back, including Japan, Turkey
ana huiiareds of other countries men
and women, girls and boys were
seen wearing white carnations in
honor and out of respect of mother.
liile no concerted effort was made
n this place to honor the memory
of mother, still the day was Gener
ally observed. To observe that great
day all one had to do was to get a
white carnation and wear it. This
is one of the occasions when every
one can join in the celebration.
Every one has a mother either dead
or living. If one's mother Is dead
the carnation will do tribute to her
motherhood and if living one should
wear the carnation as a tribute to
Iter worth. It is better to do honor
to the living rather than wait until
death compels people to appreciate
wnat tney have lost. One man in
Honesdale said that he was wearing
n llower on his coat because his
mother, who is over SO years old,
had raised it from the seed, and
that she was a good mother, and that
when sho was gone he would have
lost the best friend in the world. It
is very true.

" THE IKOXMASTEIt."
"The Ironmaster," which will bo
played by the Gardner-Vincent
Stock company at the Lyric Thea
tre on May 10, 11, and 12, is a
strong drama of French society life.
It was originally played In the
United States by tho famous Eng
lish artists, Mr. and Mrs. Kendall.
It tells the story of a woman who
married in pique after being Jilted
by her cousin. On the night of her
marriage she repulses her husband,
known as "Tho Ironmaster," owing
to his Iron will. He then deter
mines to cure her of her proud and
haughty manner and after a duel
in tho last act all ends happily.
The play abounds in stirring
scenes and situations.
Mr. Gardner will be seen as
Philip Derblay, the "Ironmaster,"
Miss Vincent has ample opportuni
ties to display her emotional ability
as Claire de Beaulieu, Miss Calnes
as the vindictive Anna Von Bar
wigwlll no doubt will win new
laurels, Mr. Le Saint as Due de
Bligllny has a part which fits him
like a glove. Miss Hackett, Miss
Cosgrlff, Munn, Wyman, La Rue,
Rogers and the local boys, Leo Os
borne nnd Mr. Jones, are well cast.
Tho piny calls for beautiful
stage settings and handsome gowns.
Tho Susquehanna Ledger, in giving
an account of the contention between
our former school superintendent, D. L.
Hower, and ono of tho patrons of his
school, speaks of it ns having occurred
"at Media, near Honesdale." Which is
a little tough on Media.

granted to David L. Hahn, of Seely

"The Iron Master" now being
played at the Lyric by the Gardner
