Second Day of Durrant's
BUT FEW WITNESSFS TESTIFIED
Hit Imprisonment Is Beginning to Tell
on Bim-RtMii Was Taken Until
X O'clock Ibis Afternoon.
San Francisco, April 23. Another
large crowd assembled In Judge Conlon'a
court room this morning to hear the ex
amination of Theodore Durrant, which
commenced about 10:30. When Dur
rant entered the court room in charge ot
the officers,- he appeared pale and
slightly nervous, his muscles twitched,
his lip worked slightly, but otherwise
he appeared cool and possessed. The
coart room was packed by the same
crowd that attended yesterday's pro
ceeding, with a number of new faces
Miss Williams, who created the scene
at yesterday's session, applied for ad
mission this morning, but her request
The first witness was Harry Part
ridge, a classmate of Durrant's, at the
Cooper medical college. Partridge tes
tified that be answered to Durrant's
. name at roll-call at one of the clinics on
April 8th, Durrant not being present
to answer for himself. April 8th is the
same day that Miss Willis, who testified
yesterday, said that she rode on the
same train with Durrant in' Alameda,
the day he is supposed to have called on
Miss Williams, the murdered girl.
Charles A. Dukes, another student,
testified that be saw Durrant at the
ferry on the afternoon of the 12th inst.,
and in a conversation with 'the prisoner,
Durrant asked him to answer to roll
call at the clinic next day, as Durrant
would be absent on a trip to Mount
Diablo with the signal corps, Durrant
said that he was at the ferry to see some
comrades of the signal corps. Clarence
Dodges, also a student, who accompa
nied Dakea, gave corroborative evidence
of meeting with Durrant at the ferry.
Emma Struven, a young girl, was
next introduced to prove that on the
Friday on which Miss Williams was
murdered Durrant accosted the witness
and two girl companions near " the
church, between 9 and 9:45 o'clock.
The witness said she did not get a good
view of the man's face, but he looked
like Durrant from the back. Crss-ex-amiaation
failed to shake her testimony.
Miss Lucille Turner was the next wit
ness. She said she had known Durrant
about a year. Durrant had spoken to
her in words not those of a gentleman
and had asked her to undergo an exam
ination, and had suggested a quiet place
in the church to';' conduct the- same.
She told him her folks could -attend to
such matters. He spoke to her of an
examination some time during the first
of this year. The witness said she
treated Durrant as if nothing of : the
kind had ever taken place, because she
- didn't want a coolness to attract atten
tion, I She said Durrani bad given her
several questions to answer on the sub
ject. A paper was introduced which
she said contained her handwriting.
The paper is said to contain the answers.
A recess .was then taken until 2
o'clock. .,' v "
The Inoome Tax Question.
Washington, April 23. The United
States supreme court today, through
: Chiet Justice Fuller, made the following
order regarding petitions for a rehearing
of the income-tax question :
"Consideration ot the two petitions for
rehearing is reserved until Monday, May
' 6, when a full bench is expected, and in
that event two counsel on each side will
be heard at that time."
Although the order does not explicitly
; Highest; of ail in iJeaveinng Power. .Latest V.ts. Gov't Keporf :
f I XI V J lift V 1: r?Ts. ::' '::;
so state, it means that argument will be
heard not on the merits of the income-
tax question itself but npon the question
of whether or not there shall be a re
hearing of the suits heretofore decided.
Justice Jackson is expected to return by
the date named.
A gentleman familiar with the proced
ure of the courts for many years, can re
collect but one instance in which like
action has been taken. That was in the
70s. No authoritative statement could
be secured of the reasons for the order,
but ' the theory is advanced that the
court is again evedently divided and
Justice Jackson will virtually be umpire
of the question A reopening the cases.

Tacoha, Wash. April 23. Report here
has it that president Jim Hill, of the
Great Northern, has secured control of
Northern Pacific railroad. This report
is given as the cause of the recent shak

the rumor, and do not take much stock
in it, although it is generally believed
by the' people.
A general feeling' of uneasiness still
prevails among Northern Pacific officials,
as it is expected several more of them
will be asked for their resignations.

gether with that of second assistant land
