Wright paid tribute to'Glfford Plnchot
as an honest, sincere m.m. but he added
that the same could not be said of most
of the other prominent conservationists,

The conservation delegates began los

It was read, and showed that the com

one expected in declaring for absolute

raised against It as It went through.

ROCHESTER. N. T.. Sept. 29. The
first session of the Democratic state
convention today was a brief Intermis
sion In the business that has brought
together here the delegates of the 61
cbuntiea of New York State.
This business was the selection of a
candidate for the head of the ticket and
it promised to keep the leaders out of
bed all night. The convention came to
order at 1:07 P. M.. perfected a tempor
ary organization,- listened to a brief ar
raignment by the temporary chairman,
Alton B. Parker, of the Republicans in
general and the political ascendancy of
Theodore Roosevelt at Saratoga In' par

Judgment of the leaders.

on a candidate selected In the meantime.

Murphy Needs His Caution.
The problem that Mr. Murphy faces is
one that needs all of his caution, experi

candidate who will be strong enough to
run at least an even race with Henry L.
Stimson. backed by Theodore Roosevelt;
one who will command the support of
Democrats of all shades of opinion, and
who can win the support of W. R.

SPOKANE, Wash.. Sept. 29. (Spe
cial.) Sitting silently In the court
room. In the Federal building, is a wo
man whose faithfulness is the com
ment of everyone who hears . of sacri
fices made to protect her husband, fac
ing a life sentence in the Federal peni
tentiary for train robbery.
She is Edna Howells. Damning as is
the evidence against her husband, C. D.
Howells, who was arrested at Seattle,
and In spite of the repeated positive
identification, she is fighting with all
her love to have him freed.
One thing lacking for the defense was
the fact that Howells had no money
to secure the attendance of witnesses
outside the Jurisdiction. This is in the
face of the contention of the govern
ment that Howells robbed the Gteat
Northern Express Company of $15,000 a
year after the mall robbery. Howells
has not shown himself to be In funds
and his only chance lay in the presence
of certain witnesses, by whom he hoped
to establish an alibi.
In palmier days his wife secured two
beautiful diamond rings. When the
case developed that money was needed
she forgot her love for the 'Jewels,
forgot everything but the dire needs of
her husband, and sold the two rings
for $100 apiece, less their true value.
Her wedding ring went, too, toward
raising the necessary money and what
little she had saved as a stenographer
for A. C Edwards was placed at the
disposal of her husband and his at
torneys. Ever since her husband's arrest she
has been kept away from him, as the
government took the position that if
there was anything to conceal, How
ells would confide In his wife and have
her aid him. Now she Is by his side
