Eager Spectator Shut'Out.
Moved by the scene of yesterday, when
it became necessary for -a court officer to
request several women to leave the -courtroom.
Recorder - Goff today directed -that
only those having a. direct Interest In the
case be admitted. Tp carry out the order
the force of officers on duty .in the Crim.
Inal Court building was .greatly Increased.
Prospective spectators began to gather
around the building early in the day.
Among them were many women, some of
whom lrad followed the trial from the
first. Today, however, they were not
permitted c"cn to approach the outer door
to the courtroom, Only those able to
prove their right to enter or who had
friends among the court officials or at
torneys were successful in gcttlns Into
the courtroom. Every f5at was taken,
however, when the proceedings were re
sumed. As soon as the prisoner had been
brought In', Recorder Goff ordered that
the doors of the courtroom be locked and
that no one be permitted to enter or
leave before the recess or-luncheon.
Rand Retorts to Iicvy.
In beginning his closing argument for
the state, Mr. Rand said:
This trial has been a bard experience for yon.
but I venture to say that It Is one that you
will not look back to with regret. It- would
be unrr&tcful also. If 1 Old not mafce my ac
knowledgement to the learned court and it.
would be ungrateful of me, roundly as I was
abused yerterday to your faces. If I took
offence, at what the counsel on the other side
In exlgenrle of a ont and rotten cause, was
compelled to say. He accused me of every
crime on the calendar, and put me on trial
it this bar for high crimes committed as a
public officer. He told you that I thirsted
lor blood and' had bounded Mrs. Smith.
Tou observed my. examination of Airs.
Smith. Did I atk. ner an Impolite question?
X)ld I npt treat her thoroughly as a lady? I
would not make mypelf an Issue here if I
had not been injected as an issue in the case
by the defendant's counsel; It Is not an
Issue at all. I might be all that Levy Kiii.
in the chagrin of a lost cause, and it would
not affect this question. I want and must
have your confidence. If I could sway the
judgment of men and' paint the fair face or
truth with a eweet cosmetic, you would not
listen to & word from me. If I could do theco
Things, there would be but .one place for me,
and that would be nt'.thls woman's side, a tit
object of contempt.
Continuing Mr. Rand said:
Mr. Levy has accused me of suppressing evi
dence and other things, but are those charges
true; I wonder if you are such 'men as to be
waved fromyour duty by such a shabby,
outworn devloeas trying to attack the pro.e.
cutor. Levy -did pot .make a point yesterday
that was not based on a lie. He told you
that Young wanted .not a severance, but a
continuance of the 'disgraceful alliance. Ae
turning that hi logic Is sound regarding the
Cogginr letter, where ar the facts?
Says Mrs. Smith Lied.
Now. with regard to Jdrs. Smith'a testlmonv
and my hounding- her. Air. Levy said I tried
to make you believe that these pawn tickets
bore date of June 5. I did not say that the
tickets represented articles pawned on June
IS. because I knew they were- dated October.
I did aak Mrs. Smith If they were renewal
tickets for article pawned on June 3. and
ber answer was a lie. She also .llej 'when

No Evidence of Suicide.
Mr. Rand reviewed the evidence In the
isc. He declared'that It had been Proved
case, lie declarcd'that It had been proved
oy mc prosecution that Xoung never
owned a revolver, and -that .even If he had
one, it would have been a physical Im
possibility for him to have Inflicted upon
himself such a wound as caused his
death. He called the attention ot the
jury to the preparations made by-Young
for his European trip, and told them
that alone proved that the bookmaker
had no Intention of taking his life. The
contention of the -defense that it was
Young who opposed breaking .off the rela
tions between him and MJss Patterson,
he claimed, was proved untenable by .the
evidence, which, he satd. showed that
Young had. kept away from her during
the whole month Just preceding his death.
Of the souvenir postal card bearing
Miss Pattersons - name and address n

in the young woman's handbag at the

EMPLOYERS LOSE BUSINESS.
Secessions Do Not Discourage Them.
Have Taken Big Contract.
CHICAGO, May 2. It is estimated that
through tho secessions today the Employ
ers' Teaming Company has lost the de
livery of about 2000 tons of coal per day.
General Manager Reed, of the Em
ployers Teaming- Company, said of the
"ViTe at no time have had as many
teams employed as today and I regaiJ
the situation as: exceedingly good."
Secretary Job, of the Employers" As
sociation, corroborated Manager Reed's
Outsido of the teams and -trucks owned,
by individual merchants, the truck com
panies or firms of the city arc estimated
to have Invested at the present time
about $23,000,000 in horses, barns, harness,
real estate, etc.
It is understood that the Employers
Teaming Company proposes to take over
the properties. of the individual firms "at
a fair valuation. Issue stock in payment
of the same, and then attempt to guar
antee an annual dividend on the stok.
A number of the largex- eamlng concerns
are said to be of the .opinion that the
Teaming Company has undertaken more
than .it cah accomplish, and that the
sooner peace s. secured, the better It will
be for everybody concerned.
The attitude. o -the packers, which has
been Involved In some doubt, is now de
clared to he opposed to the extension of
the strike to their teamsters. In general
it was stated the various packing com
panies will pursue their practice of con
veying meat to their own distributing
stations. by union teamsters and selling
from these ' stations to the' boycottcd
firms-', as . to -any other customers. The
boycotted firms will be promptly served,
.provided,, trje .packing companies. are not
asked to make deliveries.
The need for "coal rapidly Is developing
Into, one of the most Important factors
of the teamsters' strike. With the excep
tion of Marshall Field & Co.. and one or
two other big houses, the supply of fuel
on hand in State street averages from
two to four days. Marshall Field tc Co.
have coal for two weeks or more.
The seriousness of the situation was.
emphasized by John C. Fetzer. receiver
for the Union Traction Company, who
"In several of our stations, unless we
get coal In 24 hours wo will have to close
down. Of course we will try every pos
sible scheme first."
A promise, alleged to have been given
to Secretary Probst, of the Commission
Teamowners Association by President
Shea, of the teamsters, that the commis
sion men would be allowed to remove
perishable produce lylug lri express cars
In the Illinois Central freight-house, was
not respected today. Pickets stationed at
the freight-houses turned back the com
mission men's teams.
A number of the wholesale grocery
houses were badly crippled today, al
though some teams were secured for de
liveries. Drivers and helpers'--:ot' all the. large
express companies In South Chicago went
out today on a sympathetic strike. The
Building: Laborers on Strike.
NEW YORK. May 2. Work on nearly all
the large buildings now under construe

tra -work; the employment of none but
union workmen, with a wage rate of 13 a
day for bricklayers' laborers and 53.50 for

of 20 and 50 cents respectively.

:ONDON, May Z The House of Com

recess. The debate on the aliens bill was
commenced by Sir Charles Dllke, who
opposed the measure, contending that It
Charles P. " Trevelyan (Liberal) In sec
onding Sir Charles Dilke's motion provid
ing for the rejection "of the bill, referred
to the "universal sympathy with the op
pressed, misgoverned -Russian people, who
are flying' from their" country to escape
conscription for the universally detested
war In Manchuria." These, he said, would
be excluded from this country or find
greater difficulty In reaching America If
the bill was passed. William E. Evans
Gordon (Conservative) defended the bill.
Home Secretary AkcrsT-Dpuglas said the
bill only aimed to exclude undesirable
aliens. He described the excellent deter
rent effect of the American exclusion law
on this class of Immigrants and " dis
claimed any anti-Semitic tendency on the
part of the British government- He be
lieved that If the existing state of affairs
continued there would be a chance for
anti-Semitic agitation In ignorant' Quar
ters. Chamberlain Rides His Hobby.
Joseph Chamberlain supported the' bill
as being a measure tending to keep out
cheap labor. He said the bill was merely
a step toward greater ends and was an
effort to protect worklngmen against the
labor of foreigners. It would be but a
small step between the bill for keeping
out this class of labor and the bill whlch
Mr. - Chamberlain said., he hoped to see
Introduced shortly to prevent the go6ds
these people make from coming Into com
petition with those made In Great Britain.
Premier Balfour pointed out the mod
eration of the bill, which, he maintained,
did not Interfere with the right of asylum
as it was understood by the forefathers,
and expressly provided that poverty alone
should not exclude aliens. He said the
question of alien immigration was wholly
distinct from the Jewish question as It
appeared on the Continent.
American. Power of Absorption.
He agreed that the United States had
shown a remarkable power of absorbing
men of different nationalities and turning
them all by the press of national alchemy
Into. American citizens: but the absorbing
power had limits. Foreign countries, and
notably the United States, realize that
unrestricted Immigration might become a
national evil. It must be observed, the
Premier continued, how foreign legisla
tion, and especially that of the United
States, has reacted upon Great Britain.
Many aliens on the way to the United
State who were not provided with
through tickets have, remained here, and
many of these who reached the United
States unfit have returned to this coun

TARRYTOWN. N. Y., May 2. (Spe

He has purchased the Cosmopolitan
Magazine from John Brlsben Walker,
the latter to remain as editor for a
period of five years, but under the em
ploy and control of Hearst. Walker
could not be seen today, but there Is
no -doubt the deal has been completed.

he will replace the writing staff with
men recruited from his newspapers, all

BANK'S MONEY JUST WENT
Bigclow Cannot Explain How, for He
Kept Books in Head.
MILWAUKEE. Wl?., May 2. The first
authentic statement. In regard to the
cause of the downfall of Frank & Blgc
low, the defaulting, bank president, was
made today by an intimate friend ot the
former banker. In brief. Blgelow's friend
attributes .the disaster to overconfidence
In his -business ability, which the banker
did -not possess. Bigclow, his friend
states, denies that he lost the money in
"If you were to ask him how the
money was spept, 'he would be unable,
to tell you," said1' Blgclow's friend. "His"
affairs- are In a remarkable tangle. TO
my minu. mere s no reason to Deueve
that the defalcation dates back more
than comparatively a few years.
"He kept no books and for odds and
ends of all. sorts he had mind only as
their depositories. 1 am; sure I don't
know whether It indicates mental weak
ness on his part. I can but repeat, he
supposed he was a greater business man
than he was.
"Juat when Bigelow began to take the
bank s funds is a matter I am unable to
determine from anything he says. When
an examination of the bank was made
last January, nothing was' disclosed. For
all ,1 know. It did not begin until after
that time- There was an absolute lack
of system about anything he did, so far
as his own affairs were concerned." .
