- els, former, governor of Missouri, Is all
but a declared candidate for the Demo-

hence. Furthermore, Champ Clark, ml-
norlty 'leader of the house of repre

porter and advocate. , ' , 4 ,
Both of the above facts cropped out
today because of. a , visit Mr. Francis
Is paying to the capital. The excuse
for that visit Is the meeting of the
Southern Commercial congress, which Is

: And his candidacy for the senate In

Pittsburg. Pa., Feb. 12. In the midst
of a eulogy,.of Lincoln,! delivered here
tonight at the Chamber of Commerce' Lin
coln day dinner. Speaker Joseph O. Cannon-
digressed long enoua-h to dra.w a
parallel "between those who in the' pern-'

nunciation at. the president and the crit
ics of the present tithe who attack'pub

When the speaker-was dlscusslnr the
assassination of X,lncoln, he said: l
it is a numuisfting fact that the three
presidents who have been struck down In
office were murdered by foolish egotists,
hungering for that notoriety which they
found in a sensational press. Long in
vestigation failed to identify, the assas
sins of Lincoln, Garfield and McKlnley
with- any- deep conspiracy , against -the
life of the president They were all' of

notoriety and In: whose diseased minds
is created a desire to appeal to the same
sentiment . that , tolerates and, even ap

CAME INTO COURTROOM
ONCE FOR INSTRUCTIONS
Indications Were That -They
Were Hopelessly Divided on .
Fate of Defendant.
The BInger Hermann Jury at 11:30
o'clock last night had not arrived at
a verdict and was locked up for the
night; Judge Wolverton'left his cham
bers at that' time, giving Instructions
that he would not be called should a
verdict be reached later than that, time,
and that be would not hear anything
further from the Jury before o'clock
this morning. . " "
Apparently; the Jury was hopelessly
divided at the time they t were ordered
locked up . ror tne nignt, as tney naa
once come to the courtroom for instruc
tions, and returning again Jo the Jury
room had given no further evidence of
progress toward a decision. - .
Jurors Ask for Instructions. ,
At 8 o'clock the Jury sent .word to
the-court that they desired some fur
ther Instructions from" the 'Judge re
garding evidence. They were brought
into the court room and submitted a
written, request to Juege Wolverton.
This was for'lnstructlons regarding the
letters written by Senator Mitchell to
Mays, promising aid, In seourlng the
creation of the Blue, mountain reserve,
and the one sending the protests filed
by Ceorge Cattenach, which letter con
cluded with the request that Mays con
elder - the communication 'confidential
and return the protests so soon as pos
sible. ' ' - . ' ;, . ' , 1 .
Some of the Jurors had gained the
idea that these letters had been writ
ten" by Hermann to Mays, and ' they
stated that this was one of the points
which ; was dividing them in their
efforts to reach a verdict '
After having been given the informa
tlon desired, the Jury filed back to their
room' and again ; took tip the considera
tion of the case. It was evident that
there had been strenuous times in the
Jury room, from the faces of the Jurors.
Some of them wdro pale and, drawn,
howlng the earnestness of thejy discus
sions. . All of them showed the strain
they were undergoing." ' . -
Hermann Shows Strain..
The defendant, Mr.4; Hermann, : also
showed-the strain of the suspense. As
the trial has lengthened out and par
ticularly durlnsr . the. nast 'few days of
argument when he was under the grill
ing fire of Heney. his face had become
drawn' and haggard. " .' ' '

he failed ana slipped under the caboose.

regaining consciousness, he saw the tail

About this time the northbound St. Paul

stopped after backing quite a distance,
but - the engineer got off and rin ahead
to make repairs on his engine. . , '
- Then: Elmquist failing In desperate ef
forts to attract the attention of the
freight crew, began his bloody crawl
back to his key. Upon arriving there
about half an hour later, he sent the
Mankato office this message:
' "My foot is cot off and No. 271 Is
coming back to 'pick Jne up. i She will
have t to have help against 142, which
Is due at Mankato In a few .minutes.'.

found Elmquist tying almost : lifeless
over his operator's desk, a ptfot of bipod
