LIZZIE BORDEN'S TRIAL
A Sensational Murder Case Cammcnced
THE EVIDENCE IS CIRCUMSTANTIAL
Accused of Murdering Her Father and
Stepmother at Fall River
Naw l!kUKOHi, Mans., June 6. The
trial of Lizzie ltorden of Fall River,
charged with murdering her father, An
drew Jackson ltorden, and her step
mother, Abby lur(ee Borden, an aged,
wealthy and highly respected couple, on
the morning of August 4th, 1S33, began
here this morning. The most minent
criminal lawyers of the state are eui
ployed, and the trial promisee to be
most interesting and probably sensa
tional. The evidence is purely circum
stantial. On the day in question, as far
as is known, the only persons in the
house were the old couple, Lizzie and a
maid servant, Bridget Sullivan, who
was outside most of the morning wash
ing windows. Borden was out in the
morning, returning between 10 and 11
o'clock, and it was only a short time
afterward that Lizzie, after a short visit
to the barn, called to the servant to run
for the doctor as her father had been
murdured. Shortly afterward Mrs.
Borden was mis-svd, and a search re
vealed her body in an uper room, she

In the American case were so promptly
disavowed and withdrawn that they
have uot prejudiced our case at all. In

will have to put in the law some new
principle of International law, and

their doing this. The new law formu

approved by all the nation. F.ven If

probably devise some means by which
the seals can be protected and preserved,
such as a closed season for instance."

The Bank of Spokane Falls was organ

Xe Yobk, June 5. Rev. Dr. Lyman
Abbott, in his sermon on the Briggs
case yesterday at Plymouth church,
Brooklyn, endeavored to prove that Dr.
Briggs, and not the general assembly,
during the last two years had defended
the true Christian faith, and that it was
not Dr. Briggs who was heretical, but
the general assembly was the one whose
logical result was infidelity. Dr. Ab
bott spoke of the battle which had gone
on from the days of Moses down to the
present between ecclesiastics and the
prophets, the one maintaining that the
institution is the essential thing and the
other that the individual personal life is
the essential thing, and there could be
no religious institution without. lie

Chicago, June C In spite of the
fact that the Illinois Trust & Savings
bank remained opeu until S o'clock this
morning to give anxious depositors a
chance to draw funds, a new line began
to form before 8 o'clock this morning,
and at 10, the hour of oiHming, between
1,200 and 1,500 people were waiting at
the doors with their savings books. The
crowd was several times larger than at
any time yesterday. The bank is con
sidered absolutely sound. The assets
are figured up at over f'-'S ,000,000 and
its stockholders are estimated to be
worth fully loll ,000,000. At the other
savings banks the runs which began
yesterday teem to have increased in
World' Fair Kataa.
Chicago, June 5. The opinion is
steadily gaining ground among railroad
men that they have put their world's
fairrates too high, and unless they lower
them they will stand a chance of losing
money. Letters by the hundreds are
pouring in upon them on this subject
and it looks as if there would be a
change before long. The meeting of the
Western Passenger Association was
harmonious today, and the adoption of
the agreement will probably be settled
if the terms of the Atchison & Topeka
are agreed to. It wants the Colorado
roads to come into the association, a
plan for cheap excuroions to the world's
fair, and a definite arrangement for the
redemption of tickets. A committee ia j
now working on this matter.
Nkw York, June 6. A dispatch from
Managua says: "After three days
given up to general rejoicing over the
downfall of Sacasa, whose departure was
hailed with joy, the commercial houses
have reopened and business is running
along as if nothing had hap)eued. It is
feared, though, that there may he a re

already begun regarding the method of

have assumed a threatening attitude.
The canal question is an all-a!sorbing
one and will be brought liefore congress
immediately after it assembles. The
agents of foreign syndicates here will

ment has not money enough to pay otF
those who fought for it, and they are
engaged in robbing. Outside of the
towns property is not safe. It is
rumored among the revolutionists that
Sacasa has taken more than $ 1,"00,000
in cash out of the country, part of which
he sent out over a month aito; another
part his family carried away, and the
rest he took when he left. Tho report
is ridiculed by his friends. The advo

Andrew Carnegie predicts, in the June
nuuiW of the North American Keview,
issued today, the union of all the parts
of the English-speaking world, and sets
forth the advantages that would follow
an Anglo-American combination.
Mr. Carnegie argues that all influences
are now working toward a reunion of
the separated parts of the English
speaking world. The Americans, Mr.
Carnegie claims, differ less from the
Briton than the Irishman, Scotchman,
or Welshman. Tim marvelous develop
ment in recentjtimes of the facilities of
travel, he says, tends to bring into com
paratively close proximity countries
that are separated only by water. The
delegate leaving Liverpool or South
ampton for a conference at Washington
would reach that city in just almut the
same time as the delegate from the Pa
cific coast, or uh long as it took mem
bers from the nor'.h of Scotland to reach
Ixindon nt the time England and Scot
land were united.
The factor which Mr. Carnegie deems
most important in rendering political re
union possible and in his judgment in-
