MADE A WEAK DEFENSE,
None of Attorney Denprey'« ( lit I him for
San Francisco, Oct. 22.—The de-
fense in the Durrant trial practically
The impression now prevails that
the defense has materially strength-
ened the prosecution's case by failing
to establish a single fact that Attorney
Deuprey in his opening statements
said he would show. Although he an-
nounced that an alibi would be proved,
no witness appeared to swear
that Durrant was elsewhere than at
Emanuel Baptist church when Blanche
Lamont was murdered. Failing to
show that Durrant was not at the
church, the defense has attacked the
credibility of tins witnesses who testi-
fied that tlicy saw him in that vicinity
in company with Miss Lamont.

The insane man was G. 8. Merwin,

A fter seventeen hours of effort, the
police, by strategy, surprised and over-

fired 110 shots from his rifle and re-
volver, Merwin injured no one, but a
number of people had narrow escapes.
A fter every other attempt to capture
the insane man before he should kill
some one or injure himself had failed,
sulphur was burned in the furnace.
All the registers were closed excepting
the one in the room occupied by Mer-

Fort Scott, Kan., Oct. 18.—The ag-
gregate of the embezzlement from the
closed State bank of this city of ex-
Cashier J. R. Colean is declared by
Vice President J. S. Stewart to be
fully $.10,000. This has renewed the
excitement and shattered the hopes of
many of the depositors and all of the
stockholders. The amount stolen is
two-thirds of the paid up capital stock
ind more than the other third will be
required to collect on the securities.
Colean literally robbed the bank of

Chicago, Oct. 21.—The intrisrues,
the jealousies and the traitorous knife
thrusts of the last half-century of
American statecraft are revealed in
the fierce light of stern criticism in
"John Sherman's Recollections of
Forty Years in the House, Senate and
Cabinet," just published in this city.
The fear that the venerable senator
would reveal secrets, long kept from
the public, in his forthcoming work
has been to an extent realized. Grant,
Garfield, Blaine, Arthur, Harrison and
other Republican leaders are spoken
of with unstinted praise for their high,
personal, worthy statesmanship, but
each is in guarded and covert language
shown in the less commendable light
of scheming politicians. The criti-
cism is almost invariably implied
rather than direct, but it stands out
clearly in the work as a whole.
Owing to the close association of Mr.
Sherman and James A. Garfield, the
criticism of the nomination of the
latter for president of the United
States is perhaps one of the most
striking features of the book. The au-
thor, while carefully avoiding a direct
charge of treachery on the part of the
ex-president, very significantly makes
it plain that Mr. Garfield was noahi
nated at a convention to which lieindu
gone as the trusted leader of the Sher-
man forces. After showing by the
publication of private letters, covering
a period of years of close political and
personal association, that Mr. Garfield
was, in reality, his political protege,
Mr. Sherman gives in detail the his-
tory of the national convention of
1880. Following the account of his
own struggle for the nomination, he
"In time, I became horoughly ad-
vised of what occurred at the Chicago
convention, and had become entirely
reconciled to the result, though fre-
quently afterwards I heard incidents
and details which occasioned me great
pain, and which seemed to establish
the want of sincerity on the part of
some of the delegates, and teuded to
show that for some time before the
meeting ofljthe convention the nomi-
nation of General Garfield bad been
The sting felt by Garfield's defection
in 1880 is inadvertently shown bv a
sentiment expressed during the discus-
sion of the national convention of
1892, where the senator remarks:
"From later developments 1 became
satisfied that Harrison could not be
elected, that Piatt and a powerful j
New York influence would defeat him
if nominated. I therefore preferred
the nom'natiou of a new man, such as
William McKinley, but he had com-
mitted himself to Harrison, and, ac-
cording to my code of honor, could not
accept a nomination even if tendered
Again the author reverts to the
Chicago convention in discussing the
character of President Garfield. Of
his personality and eloquence he
speaks in the highest terras. His will
power, he says, was not up to his per-
sonal magnetism. He adds that his
opinion changed easily. In this
connection he said: "When I proposed
to him to be a delegate-at-large to the
Chicago convention, he no floubt
meant in good faith to support my
Some of the political scheming that
again resulted in the defeat of the
Ohio statesman in the national con-
vention of 1888 and brought about the
nomination of ex-President Harrison
can easily be read between the lines
in that part of the work devoted to
this struggle. In discussing the re-
sult Mr. Sherman says lie became sat-
isfied one delegate from New York
controlled the entire delegation from
that state, and between Saturday
He llar<l!v Realized What Had Happened
U hen He Ma* Nominated.
Cl.kvei.akd, Ohio, Oct 22.—Colonel
William Perry J'ogg of New York, now
in this city on business, was a warm
personal friend of Garfield, and was
with him in the convention which
nominated him for the presidency.
"Garfield waa nominated in a sudden
whirlwind of political feeling," he
said yesterday. "After the nomina-
tion 1, with Governor Foster and N.
15. Sherwin of Cleveland, accompanied
him to his rooms at the Grand Pacific
hotel, lie was like one dazed, not
seeming to fully comprehend what
h"d befallen him. Presently a knock
came at the tloor, and opening it, I
saw Colonel Moulton. the brother-in-
law of Senator Sherman. 'May I
collie in?' he asked. General Garfield
nodded. Colonel Moulton strode into
the room and in his big-hearted, cor-
dial way, grasped Garfield's hand and
congratulated him. Garfield stared
hard at him in a dazed way I never
saw in him before.
" 'Moulton,'he exclaimed earnestly,
'I want you to bear me witness that
this is not the result of any word or
act of mine.'
"Colonel Moulton responded even
more emphatically, still wringing
" 'Any man who says that you had
any part in bringing this about is a
liar, and I will tell him so."'
Both Colonel Moulton and his wife
are now dead.
REVIEW OF BUSINESS.
KventM of thf Week Were I'ronilMliig lo
New York, Oct. 21.—Dun's review
says: Failures for October thus far
cover liabilities of 83,025,599, of which
$l,5.UJ,2f>5 were of manufacturing, and
82,185,.>34 of trading concerns. Fail-
ures for the week have been 203 in the
United States against 253 last year,
and 40 in Canada against 43 last year.
The events of the week arc promis-
ing in nature, though the speculative
markets are not entirely encouraging.
The great advance in cotton so de-
ranged exports that shipments of gold
were for a time apprehended, but the
breatsin the market indicates that the
natur«l movement of the product may
soon be restored. The halting of de-
mand and moderate yielding of prices
in the great industrial market shows
that a season of reasonable attention
to natural conditions has arrived, and
gives hope that the future demand
will bo more nearly proportioned to
actual consumption. The week has
brought a little further decline in iron
and steel products, in hides and
leather, and u more yielding tone in
Loots and shoes
Taken Into CuHtody by the Sheriff on a

Font Scott, Kan., Oct. JO. — J. R.
Colean. cashier of the wrecked State
bank of this city was arrested last
evening by Sheriff Allen on a warrant
charging him with embezzlement.
The complaint was sworn out by Vice
President j. J. Stewart, J. N. Meade,
one of the directors, and T. J. Strode,
a stockholder. Colean is still in a very
critical condition, and as it was im-
possible to have him moved, a guard

Treatment for lung disease. The Amick
certain to go to Sherman, and Monday
morning, when the tide turned in
favor of Ilr.rrison, a corrupt bargain
was made in the interests of the
latter, which secured him the support
of New York and gave him the nom-
ination. Continuing the author states
in fairness to the ex-President: "But
it is to the credit of General Harrison
to say that if the reputed bargain
was made it was without his consent
at the time."
On the eve of another national cam-
paign in which ex-President Harrison
is expected to figure prominently, Mr.
Sherman does not hesitate to state
that in 1802 he did not consider Harri-
son a strong candidate. To his cold
and abrupt manner, he attributes his
unpopularity at that time.
IVhen it was remembered that Blaine
was also a candidate for the presiden-
cy before the convention that nomin-
ated Garfield, the significance of the
following explanation on the part of
Senator Sherman of why he was not
reappointed by President Garfield as
secretary of the treasury is readily un-
derstood: "In the latter part of No-
vember, 1880, General Garfield came to
Washington and called upun Mr.
Blaine, who, it was understood, was
to be secretary of state. Garfield
came to my house directly from
Blaine's and informed me he had ten-
dered that office to Blaine and that it
was accepted. He said Blaine thought
it would not be politic to cont inue u>e
as secretary of the treasury, as it
would be regarded as an unfriendly
discrimination by other members of
llayes' cabinet. I promptly replied
that I agreed with the opinion of
Blaine, and was a candidate for the

Chicago, Oct. 22.—The health de-
