most searching crossexaminations ever heard in a Tennessee court Col onel Duncan B Cooper was surrendered to his own counsel by the state Today the case against the Coopers and John D Sharp for the slaying of Former Senator E W Carmack will be resumed with the aged defendant still upon the stand His counsel have decided upon a redireqt exam ination promising to be brief Whether the state will crossexatn ine again and if so how long it will last will depend of course upon what Colonel Coopers own counsel bring out today Immediately after Colonel Cooper is finally dismissed from the stand Governor Patterson and his adjutant general Colonel Tulley Brown will be called to tell what part they played in this political tragedy Colonel Brown was in James Bradford office at the conference which begun at 3 p m the day of the tragedy and closed only 20 minutes before the killing Just as the conference closed Governor Patterson telephoned for Colonel Cooper It is the defenses theory that while going to the gover nors mansion the Coopers met Sena tor Car ackand that the killing resulted The crossexamination of Colonel Cooper is easily the most striking feature of the trial thus far The colonel Js65 years old out well pre served He has the reputation of be ing highspirited and easily moved to anger It was common rumor that he took the stand against the advice of his counsel However in Tennessee the defendant who does not take the stand ig looked upon with suspicion Nevertheless all efforts of the state to confuse the witness on the subject matter oi his direct examination failed He stuck to Ills story never faltered never hesitated Towards the close of the ord a Colonel Cooper began to show signs of distress Before time for the lunch eon adjournment he asked the court to take a recess until 2 p m that he might rest and recover his strength While he appeared fresh and restored when he again took the stand hr soon began to weaken physically He gave frequent displays of temper dir regarded the orders of his own coun sel his voice became sharp and his manner pettish The states attorney to add to his annoyance jumped from one point of his narrative to mother asked disconnected and Involved questions but gave up the task and left the witness perspiring flushed and angered but selfsatisfied ALL DOUBT REMOVED MaoVeaghs Acceptance Completes the Taft Cabinet New

RULING l A SEVERE BLOW Government Loses Its Rebate Con tentionConsiders Case a Farce Chicago F b26From Judge LanV dis fine of 29240000 to a possible maximum fine of 720000 is a far cryr but that is admitted to be the meaning of a ruling made by Judge Anderson in the retrial of the Standard Oil Company of Indiana for alleged rebating Judge Andersons ruling was a severe blow to United States District Attorney Sims and his associates In the prosecution He and his assist ant James H Wilkerson had argued that each shipment of which there were 500 making possible a max1 mum fine of 10000000 constituted- an offense This view Judge Anderson declared he could not Understand He said that it had not been made plain what comprised a shipment a trainload a car lot or a gaBonIia 1 saw no reason why if a trainload or a car lot were regarded as a separate offense the matter might not be fury ther divided making a hundredweight- the unit or a gallon greatly increasing the number of offenses and mag nifying the punishment The division of alleged offenses he said seemed- to fall naturally into 36 parts or counts each marked off bya money settlement It was in these settle iments that rebates if any were made and received Mr Wilkerson argued that the Jlnw which would be possible under th courts ruling would serve merely as- a license toa great corporation On this point Judge Anderson said la effect That is a consideration which has iio weight with me whatever I am not concerned with the effectiveness of the statutes but with their interpretation and application If the view that I have taken has the effect that has been stated that is a matter for the lawmakers to consider Iff their laws are inadequate let them upply a remedy There was little on the surface to indicate the great portent of Judgev Andersons lowvoiced words unless it was the intense quiet of Mr Sims or the expostulatory expression oa the face of Mr Wilkerson Neither would discuss the ruling but the governments attitude alt along has been plain This attitude expressed in veiled form In the unsuccessful attempt to have the Lan die decision reviewed by the supreme court has been that failure to inflict a huge fine proportionate to the earnings of the defendant would practical ly nullify years of Investigation and prosecution and make the large sums expended so much wasted money A fine of 10000000 It was believed would suffice to indicate that the gov ernment has the power to deal efficiently with alleged corporate evils Judge Andersons ruling it Is said re moves that hope NAVAL CONFERENCE ENDS

WINCHESTER NEWS iTtfEATED AS A GOOD FRIEND Intimate Association Between the Arab and His Horse It is most interesting to note the way the Arab treats his faithful friends So inured indeed is the Arab pony by long usage and descent to the manner of life in the desert that even my own pony positively im proved on the treatment and I neve saw him so fit as when he came back from the trip If the Arab and his horse are by legend closely allied they are in point of fact even more intimately connected His mount is his first thought and at all times by far the most interesting topic of conversation He is ungroomed unclipped unhal tered for the Arab prefers to shackle him by means of two ropes a short cord connecting the fore and hind fet locks and a long line tethering him above the hind fetlock to a peg in the ground Thus he can move about oy ron at leisure and should there be any rough herbage at hand can for age for It Perhaps one of the princiI pal reasons why the Arab so excels long

grow in wonderful magnificence creeping continually further upward toward the stars until the lower city grouped around the Singer tower has become a veritable Chimborazo of glitter and glow The

regiment was the army of Gustavus Adolphus an was engaged in a battle with the Aus- trIans The Swedish runners did no elevate their guns sufficiently an their shot fell Among this Scottish regiment so

fertility of pro duction In the seventh of the 29 vol umes which compose the Impressions de Voyage there is a sentence de- scrIbIng Benvenuto Cellini which flub three pages or iO8 lines 45 letters apiece The sentence is broken by 68 commas and 60 semi colons but as it contains 195 verbs and 122 proper names the reader is somewhat bewildered before the end is reached Wise MenoAlthough a wise man

occupied of old by the Aztecs and the realm far to the south over which the Incas ruled lies an immense stretch of territory a thousand miles long and 800 wide where the remains of unknown and wonderful civilizations are being dis covered says a writer In Van Nor dens Magazine This region extends from the northern boundaries of Peru to the southern limits of Costa Rica In one section alone along the coast of Ecuador six entirely unknown civilizations were recently brought to light by Prof Marshall H Savllle and a vast collection of relics has been brought to New York This collectIon is to be the nucleus of a great Amer ican museum which will represent the history of ancient peoples who attained an extraordinarily high degree of civilization yet whose very exist ence has been hitherto lost in an- tiuityY The famed marble chairs of Rome at its zenith were not more symmet rical or beautifully carved than those of one of these unknown civilizations No pottery of any other ancient race was more delicately patterned than that found in vast quantities as numerous almost as pebbles on the sites where those extinct peoples dwelt Their cloth was of truly marvelous weave in

of years ago by the ancient Romans and the only one bearing on the subject may have to be amended or wholly nullified before airships go shooting about through space at their own sweet will This important fact was brought out at a meeting of aeronauts in London At present nobody has the right to fly across occupied land The world is governed by the ancient Roman law Usque ad Coelum It means that every landowner has a right to the air above his head as far up as he chooses to go and can get an injunc tion to restrain anyone from flying through It So far nobody has attempted to put the law in force It would be most uncomfortable not to say dis astrous for a farmer suddenly to emerge from his barn or smokehouse and pepper ones airship with bullets The fact that the aeronaut from his lofty perch could not be expected to see theuNo Trespass sign might not prove a mitigating circumstance with the rural magistrate Where Shed Wear It Somebody sent this to the society editor of the

and most deadly depart ments maintained by the British government In India It is a large fleet of coasting steamers specially built for the transport of elephants Indias population is onefifth that of the entire globe All these people use elephants They use them for draught work and for tigerhunting and in the arenas of the native states they even pit them against one another and against wild beasts The elephant Ceet transfers the animals from Dacca the trapping and training headquar ters to the various districts whence comes the demand To get an elephant aboard ship is a difficult and dangerous task The ani mal must wade through the surf to a stout raft and this unknown surf so white and tumultuous often terrifies and maddens him If in his fury he slaughters a mahout or two he can not be greatly blamed Once on the raft his legs are tied to pegs and the slow sail to the ship is uneventful But now a great band must be arranged under the elephants belly and a crane must hoist him up some twenty or thirty feet to the deck Here again the elephant cannot be set down as Intractable if losing his head in that unprecedented aerial journey he murders some more mahouts Very prosperous albeit stained a lit tle with mahouts blood the elephant fleet for many years has plied up and down the Indian coast embarking and disembarking its heavy unmanageable freight INGERSOLLS TRIBUTE TO
