STICK PINS INTO BODY
OF PLAINTIFF IN COURT
Pincers Are Also Applied to Dem*
onstrate Whether or Not He
Is Paralyzed. v
There have been strange scenes
enacted in Sliver Bow courtrooms at
Butte, Mont., but probably t^e most
unusual was staged during the trial
of the $18,000 damage suit of All Has-
san against the Northern Pacific rail-
Hassan was brought Into court on a
conch and divested of Ms clothing
while numerous tests to demonstrate
that be was or was not paralysed
were made by Doctors Lhotka and
lfagi It. 11ns were Imbedded in Hss-
saa's flash almost to the head, "heat
applied to bis legs and pliers used on
his toe nails without visible effect.
It wis only when the examiners ap-
plied their tests to those portions of
Hassan's body above the waist line
that be Indicated he felt a sensation.
During the progress of the tests
more than twenty doctors summoned
by the defendant and plaintiff sur-
rounded the conch to watch the tests.
At the conclusion of the examination
the plaintiff was removed from the
courtroom to rest In tbe Judge's cham-
The introduction of a hnmnn spine,
to demonstrate the nature of tbe in-
Jury sustained* by Hhsssii when he
Jumped from ■ handcar near Home-
stake. was another unusual feature
of the trial. Doctors called to the
stand used the spine to vlsuulize to
the Jury the testimony offered. A
spinal cord was also introduced 111
Absurd Psacs Conference.
At tbe peace conference of 1836,
that assembled In Perls to arrange a
settlement after the Crimean war,
secrecy wss carried to such a length
that the president of the conference.
Count Colonna Wslewskl, tried to keep
the deliberations not only from the
public, but from the several members
of the conference itself, by putting the
British representatives Into one room,
the Russians Into another, the Prus-
sians Into a third, while he wandered
In and out amongst them, "with diplo-
matic sighs and nods and whispers."
Ijord Clarendon probably put an end
to that by demanding an Instant Inter-
view with Louis Napoleon, whom he
told that he would go home rather than
continue the farce.
