Monster Trial In Progress In an Italian
Town. - -
Rome, April 8. A monster trial is in
progress at Barri, Italy. One hundred
and seventy-nine members of the Mala
Vita society are accused of various crimes,
their trial being in progress at once.
The accused occupy two galleries secured
by strong iron bars. They are mostly
masons, coopers and of other mechanical
occupations. They are young and well
dressed, but the number includes many
wejl-known criminals. Order is pre
served by a strong force of police and
military. The witnesses for the prosecu
tion number 207 and for the defense 425.
The precincts of the court are thronged
with soldiers prepared to deal summarily
with any outbreak. The trial began last
Monday. The majority plead entire
ignorance of the society. A few admit
that they wounded certain persons by
order of the society, under fear of death.
Two of the prisoners revealed the names
of several olficers of the society, includ
ing the president. One described the
society as divided into three branches.
There has been great excitement and al
most a riot in court. '
HARRISON WILL RETIRE.
He Will Leave Chicago and Either Travel
or Go on a Farm.
' Chicago, April 8. Ex-Mayor Carter
II. Harrison this afternoon announced
his permanent retirement from political
life. He proposes to leave Chicago for
good and either travel or go on a farm.
Concerning the tactics of the Cregier
wing of the democracy, he said it was in
line with its action for the past two
mODths, fraudulent, intimidating, cor
rupting and disgraceful.
"It was," he continued, "a revelation
to me, for I have never before attended
the polls in the hoodlum districts. Wild
er and more disgraceful orgies, more be
sotted savagery and open appeals to buy
ers of votes could not exist in the most
ignorant of the southern districts."
HIS JOT KILLED HIM.
He Peddled Tickets for Harrison and
Then Danced Himself To Death.
Chicago, April 8. William H.Braniff
peddled tickets all day yesterday for
Harrison. After the polls closed he
went into a saloon very happy and called
for drinks. Afterwards he began . danc
ing and singing until he was out of
breath. He is a large man, and the bar
tender warned him to desist, or he
would hurt himself. Braniff kept on
dancing, however, and soon dropped to
the floor, and died in a few minutes.
Heavy Damages Asked.
Seattle, April 8. W. W. Beck, who
gave sixteen Seattle lots and $1715 in
cash toward subsiding a flouring mill
for Ravenna Park station, north of this
city, brought suit in the superior court
today for $10,000 damages , against the
Revenna Milling Company, charging it
with fraud and false representation.
The mill company agreed to erect a mill
within thirty davs from November 2,
with a capacity of grinding 200 parrels
of flour daily. Beck says he was basely
swindled, and gave his money and lots
believing the representation made him
by the ' Ravenna Mill Company were
true, but no mill has yet been built, and
all is a myth.

Eves if RepresentativevJasoa B. Brown
does come from a rural district in Indi
ana, he has so hayseed in bis hair. A
few days ago be hired a cab in front of
the BiggB bouse and drove around where
he expected to meet a friend.' But his
friend was not there, and so he drove
back to the hotel around the corner. The
trip occupied just six minutes. "How
much?" he asked the cabman. "Seventy
five cents.. "Oh, no," said Mr. Brown,
"you can only charge seventy -five cents
an hoar. "It's just the same for a por
tion of an boar," said cabby. "If that
is the case," said Mr. Brown, "you can
wait here for the balance of the hour. I
will be in the hotel when your hour in
up." Then he disappeared through the
doorway. In less than fifteen minutes
the cabby capitulated. "Give me twenty- .
five cents and I will go away," he said.
He got his money and departed. Wash-'
The Ministers and Aldermen Coast.
A delicate question has lately arisen
in the mind of his honor Mayor Brad
ford. When coasting' was prime on
Mulberry street the mayor, - with his
usual forethought for people's safety,
carefully directed that an officer be sta
tioned at the foot of the hill to arrest
any who trespassed against the -law
which forbids the coasters to cross Maple
street. "But, yer honor," exclaimed the
policeman, "phat was I to do? I saw a
ripper coming like a tstreak of greased
lightning down the hill. Whizz it went
across the street, and I tore along after '
it to arrest the miscreants. Bat who
should scramble off the pesky tiling but
Alderman Holbrook and his lady, and
the Jast of all came Parson Baldwin!"
So his honor, the mayor, scratches his
head and thinks and thinkn and thinks.
' Springfield (Mass.) Homestead.
In the St. Joseph hospital, Omaha, is
a case that has attracted the attention
of the best physicians of that city, and
the equal of which is not known in
medical history. It is that of Mrs. Mc
Kinney, wife of a railroad man of
Kearney, Neb. The phenomenal featnro
of the ease is that the woman's bodily
temperature for six months past has
ranged from normal to 171 degs. Fahren
heit, and has remained at 148 degs. for
weeks at a time. Heretofore the high
est authenticated case of temperature
not resulting fatally has been 114 degs.

A r elmlstie Jadg.
In the cosarse of a case before the court
of review, Saturday, whan a learned
counsel was referring to the alleged dis
honest practices of the defendant, Chief
Justice Sir .Francis Johnson introduced
the. following remark, "LVm't be too
strong; yon must remember there are not
very many really honest men on this earth
after alL" Later on in the case, when
the counsel spoke of the conviction
which he hoped for, the judge again re
marked: "Well, after all, the line is a
small one, indeed, that divides the con
victed from the unconvicted.'' Montreal
