New York, April U.—The hearing in the
case of lbert T. Patrick, charged with
the murder of the aged millionaire, Wil
liam Marsh Rice, closed this afternoon,
and Justice Jerome announced that he
•reserved his decision, but hoped to make
it known by next Monday. It rests with
Justice Jerome whether or not Patrick
will be held for the grand jury. Mean
while Patrick will stay in the Tombs.
In summing up for the prisoner, his
counsel, Mr. Moore, presented several
reasons why he thought Patrick should b«
freed. The last one was this: "Admitting,
if you will, that Patriok is guilty of for
gery, corroboration of that has no bear
ing on the charge of murder. We con
tend that there is no evidence that Rice
"That may be." said Justice Jeroir.e,
"but under the comn:on law, on the
statement of Jones alone I should have
to hold the defendant for the grand jury.
Whether the statutes change this, in re
gard to holding a defendant for the grand
Jury is the question. That Is a mere ques
tion of law and can easily be settled."
Mr. Moore, acting for David L. Short
and Morris Meyers, waived • examination
Of the charge of forgery against them. a*
he also did concerning the '.-barge of for
gery against Patrick. The latter was re
manded to the Tombs without ba!l on the
murder charge, but no bail was fixed for

PAROCHIAL SCHOOL SYSTEM.
!!■ I.lfe Threatened by Modern Edn
Chicago, April 11. —Delegates to the
third annual convention of Catholic
Colleges devoted their attention to-day
to the consideration of technical sub
jects. Speakers at the afternoon ses
sion declared that modern educational
legislation threatened the life of the
parochial school system. All this class
of legislative action, they said, seriously
discriminated against the church
schools and evevy other system of edu
cation which seeks to combine religious:
training with learning. It was argued'
that under existing conditions Catholics
were compelled to pay taxes for the'
support of public ■schools which their
children do not attend. It was insist
ed that the State should recognize
Catholic schools on the same basis with
other educational institutions to which
financial assistance is given. These
expressions of opinion were brought
forth by a paper on "Educational Leg
islation in the United t-'tates," read by
the Rev. James P. F#gan, S. J., of
Georgetown University, and were lib
erally applauded by the delegates. The
speaker reviewed the different educa
tional bills adopted in several States
and declared that they were all inimi
cal to the Catholic Church's school sys
Mgr. Comity said: "We are here by
sufferance, but we are here as Ameri
can citizens demanding our rights. We
tire not asking for favor; all we want
Is Jyatice. We want recognition as citi
zens and tax-payers in school affairs,
i We belelve that no true education is
(possible without religious instruction,
and we have a right to insist upon our
demands. There is no doubt that near
ly all the educational laws enacted by
the States are aimed at the Catholic
pchool system. It is our duty both to
ourselves and our people to protest and
pontinue protesting until our objections

A BLOW AT A >1 KI!I«'AX BEEF.
Tlie BritKh Government Txclnden all
Beef, Except Home Bred from lh«
British Army Contracts.
Washington, April 11.—The Depart
ment of Agriculture has received a dis
patch from a prominent packing com
pany of Chicago, announcing that they
have just been advised that the Eng
lish Government has excluded all beef,
except home bred, from the British
army contracts. This, it is stated, is to
be effective June Ist next.
The Chicago concern has asked the
Agricultural Department for any as
sistance it can render. It has pointed
out that the action of the British Gov
ernment is a severe blow to American
heef and cattle exporters and producers
and means not alone the loss in gov
ernment trade, but it is feared it will
serve materially toward inciting a
prejudice on the part of the people of
Great Britain against the beef and cat-,
tie of this country. No official informa.
tlon of this reported contemplated
move has reached the department, ac
cording to statements o. officials this
afternoon. Steps have been taken, how
ever, looking to acquiring whatever in
formation it is possible to get.
To demonstrate the importance of the
move now said to be contemplated, it
is pointed out that the value of our ex
ports of live animals to Great Britain
amounts to $40,000,000, while the total of
animal products exported from the
United States to Great Britain is
stated to be, in round numbers, $200,-
000,000. It is pointed' out here that this
proposed embargo may really be a Be
quel, in greater or less degree, to the
proceedings instituted at New Orleans
against shipments of horses and mules j
from that for use in the South
While this is, of course, merely con
jectural, it is very strongly hinted that
the New Orleans incident probably is
the direct inspiration for the step. It
Is pointed out that if the English real
ly decide to take the action reported in
the advices just received, the British ,
might turn to Australia for their |
meats. It is claimed, however, that 1
meats cannot be gotten there in as

Kentucky has received a ter

traditions have been rudely
overthrown. Not only was
proud Lexington, the queen of
the blue grass, forced to endure
the bluest of blue Sundays, but
the poolrooms were ordered to
be permanently closed. The
mandate was issued by Mayor
Duncan, but both the saloon
keepers and the poolroom sell

the mayor left town. Mayor
Pro Tem Lowry was made of
sterner stuff than the man up
higher. On Saturday Mr.
Lowry summoned the proprie
tors of the two local poolrooms
and the owners of the buildings
in which they were operated
before him. He informed the
men that if they attempted to
run a poolroom while he was
acting mayor of the city he
would raid the place, arrest the
employes and speculators and
smash all the paraphernalia
and arrest the owners of the
buildings for suffering gaming.
With the fear of his hatchet,
and what was worse, the fear
of a pick or shovel, before their
eyes, enduced them to conform
