Savannah, Nov. 6. At the banquet tonight given tn honor of President Taft the guests launched a boom for a second term for the president Taft, smilingly replied that the "District of Columbia was also solid for a second term but they didn't have any votes and that Georgia went solidly for Mr. fryan," ; . Taft scored a hit with the banquet ers when he praised Cobb, the baseball player, who was recently indicted in Cleveland, Ohio, for the alleged scab bing of a hotel watchman. Cobb is . Georgian. Continuing, Taft saidr "He is a gentleman that fisures more largely In the affairs of Georgia than does the president. I refer, gentlemen, to the hero Ty Cobb. I saw a public statement that he was being made the victim of a damnable conspiracy. I haven't seen the results but I hope the bar of Georgia will rush to bis defense and by a writ of habeas corpus, if no other means Is available, restore him to the people whom he loves and who loves him."

Evidence I Contllctlng When Dcfcn.l. ant is Culled to Stand. Last night Chief Rayburn searched the house of Mabel McLain for ev idence to shed additional light upon the conections which she may have had with the robberies committed by someone believed by some to be Fre.i Taylor now In the county Jail await ing the session of the grand Jury. No definite statement of the result" of the search will be made until the hearing before the grand Jury. As predicted In the Observer yester day the trial of Taylor before Justice C. A. Williams ended at C o'clock by the negro being bound over and place:! under $1,500 bonds. The witnesses for the defense who had the stand during the latter portion of the afternoon, brought out some evidence of value to Taylor. While Taylor himself was on the stand he t bowed by authentic papc-a that up until a year ago he was serv Ing in the U. S. messenger service anl that he was forced to leave this work on account of a broken leg. The leg is yet stiff and he cannot run. Yet Mrooks testified pnsl'lvely that the man who was in his house ran away at a great rate of speed. That there was another negro ' iio city answering the. descriptor"' i, the man Brooks saw In his hourfo was established by wlineKsr-q , from the Queen restaurant. A man came In to eat shortly after the story of the ar rest of Taylor came out In the pa pers. He consumed about an hour eat ing a stake in order that he might I t PM Rnn 1 1. 1 1 ItUIIU get the paper that another man was reading,- and when he got hold of it he read the story of the burglary very carefully. This negro had no mustache and Brooks could not say that he saw a mustache on the man lu his house. Mabel McLane corroborated Taylor's story that he was at her house from the time that he left the barber shop at 9 o'clock until 11 o'clock. From there, Brooks walked up the lighted track toward home. When he heard the command to halt he was scared, be cause he thought he was to be robbed. He said that he heaved a Blgh of relief when he saw that the men were offi cers. ' . ' Whatever may be the connection of Taylor and Mabel McLain with the burelarv of the Brooks rMHnr has been established beyond a doubt '.hat they are dope fiends of the first degree. In the search of the Jefferson Avenue house three sacks of "Dope" were taken '"from Mabels "rat", Dur ing the search Mabel requested that she be allowed to go out behind the scenes. Officer Weldon was delegated to watch her and caught her In an attempt to conceal her rat In a can. Upon seizing the hair puffer the officer cut It open and found the sacks of dope. In both the woman's house and the house of Taylor full sets of hop pipes were found. In the negro's house a large quantity of clothing and shoes wsre stored .Letters were also found to which Mabel has signed her uarae as Mable Mclin, Mabel Taylor and Mabel Donovan. All the letters were addressed to her at Spokaen from which place she and Taylor came. E PENDLETON" MAKES IT CLEAR HE IS TO ACT. Pendleton Citizens InsUt on Slier Lr Attending to his Duties. Pendleton, Nov. 6. The East Ore gonian said last night: "It is now up to Sheriff T. D. Tay lor to enforce the local option law In Umatilla county, if it cannot Iv j done by the employment of detectives and the co-operation of the district at-1 torney and the county court. The show, down came yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock at the. termination of an exceedingly Interesting moetlu 'U which the above officers and about a r'oen members of the Law and Order League, all of them taxpayers anl representing every section of the conn ty, took part. The meeting occurred in the Jury room at the court house. Incensed at the reports that 'aa'd been spread broadi afit to the efei t that the local option law was Ixi'.ng openly and flagrantly violated, ec- peclally In Pendleton, that blind pias were flourishing, bootleggers doing a thriving business and that no attempt was being made by either the couuty or city officers o enforce the law. these men came to Pendleton, by pvo- arrangement, on the opening day of the November tetm of the Circuit court, to ascertain why the law eyas Dot being enforced and to demand of the officers that It be enforced. ; It was first deeidede that as the re sult of . investigations conducted by men present It wan found there was not so many nor such flagrant viola tions as has beUi ic ported. It was in slsted that not a great deal of intoxt eating liquors Were being sold in the city of Pendleton, but It was admitted (hat more was being sold here than should be. The general, opinion prevailed, how ever, that tm 1"' cnuld be enforced and should be, t r;ii if it should be nec essnry for every man present to go rVnwi Into his pocket to secure the funds necessary . to secure a strict obodleme to the statute. With a resolu tlpn calling upon the county court to furnish the sheriff with detectives if It was found to be necessary, was be ing considered, some one moved that the district attorney, sheriff, county judge and commissioners be requested to appear before the meeting and to hear and participate In the discussion. SHERFF MM FLAYED BYJUDCE TRIAL AT PARIS OF MRS. STEIXnElL IS PITIFUL, , Man Who Confessed to the Murder yes terday Admits that He Bed Woinaa .Suffers at the Hauds of the Court , ... mui rroten lone cent She Withstands the Attack Wonderfully Well Trial Becomes a Mere Farce. Paris, Nov. 5. Under a heartlesa examination, suffering nothing to be withheld and showing no 'signs of mercy for her sex, Madame Steinheil Utterly submitted to a "third degree in public , today. Displaying bravery, such as few, women possess, now pleading for mercy and again striking bak fiercely this wonderful woman has won the pity of the French na tl6n. as public sentiment - that has heretofore been against her has now turned in her favor. 'When Lefebvre, who arose In the court room and confessed to the kill ing of Steinheil and his mother yester day, was cross examined in prison to day, he collapsed and said that his confession was a He and was made through the excitement of themoraent caused by hysteria and was engender ed through his sympathy for the pris oner A,, thorough Investigation will V be made, however, despite his denial, f The; woman is being tried In the Na poleonic code, which presumes that the prisoner is gutlty until she ha3 proven herself Innocent. The actions of the French court Is Indicating that they are pushing this presumption to the extreme. , , , ; . The public generally expects an ac quittal, not because they think that : she Is Innocent, but because of, the pity In the minds of the public that she has aroused in the fierce fight she Is making against overwhelming odds. ' Prosecutor Devalls today ' became more brutal than ever and with the assistance and under the direction of the prosecutor general became more brutal than ever In their relentless Joint questionings. The examination finally became an Inquisition. , .' Devalles questioning frequently was the cause of the woman Jumping in a hysterical manner from her seat and shouting at the top of her voice. Again he would shout his questions nt her In a mighty roar and the woman would simply huddle down In her seat quietly crying. When she would protest to the Judge against that kind of an ex amination her protests would be rul ed down and on such occasions she was bitterly rebuqued for losing her. temper. Many believe that Devalles secretly sympathises with the prisoner but is using this brutal method for the pur pose of arousing sympathy for ths prisoner in the minds of the Jury and assure her an acquittal.
