Prof, von Hoist of the University of Chicago lectured on The French Revolution" in Unity Church, Dearborn avenue and Walton place, last night to a large audience. The lecture in one instance bordered on the sensational and caused a perceptible commotion. This was when the lecturer referred to late criminal insanity cases by saying he was not in favor of setting up Judges who put themselves on the side of criminals who had bad spots in the composition of their brains, the interference of the Judges resulting in the escape of the criminals. von Hoist intimated also that modern physicians and would-be experts were largely responsible for this feature present criminal trials.

In 6peaking of the French Revolution. von Hoist 'said the revolution of 1789 was par excellence the revolution of France. La Fayette had said it would make its way around the world, and it had. The lecturer did not think the American Revolution, which preceded it, of much consequence, as it had but little effect on the civilization of Europe, The French Revolution ushered in a new epoch in the civilization of the world- The forces that accomplished the result were more human than distinctly French and had had a propagandists effect ever since. France originated, but enjoyed less of the results of the revolution than other countries.

The revolution destroyed itself with its own excesses. It was the result of centuries of preparation rather than of the men of the times. Speaking of some of the causes that led to the revolution the lecturer referred to Louis XV. and said he was held in contempt by his people. Upon one occasion that monarch was ill.

Then 6,000 private citizens in Paris paid for masses for his recovery. Ten years later he was again sick and but 600 masses were paid for by the people of Pdris.

George H. Painter's remains he moldering in the grave, but his cause is not dead.

man, whom every one respects as a citizen and a lawyer, sorrowed and sympathized with him all through the gloom and agony of his last night on earth, and solemnly promised him that he would never rest until he had if possible discovered the real murderer of Alice Martin and rescued from undeserved ignominy the name of George H. Painter. This man was Luther Laflin Mills. A lawyer's motives are always believed to be interested whatever he may say to the contrary, but the fact is that Mr. Mills' connection with Painter's case was due to a casual conversation and to Mr.

Mills' generous and sympathetic heart. But after he had once satisfied himself of Painter's innocence, he labored day and night at his own expense, in utter disregard of public sentiment, and until the drop fed, to avert what he honestly believes was a judicial murder. It is true that during the night before the execution there was no further hope of reprieve, but even then he felt it his duty to share the doomed man's dungeon and solace him with expressions of confidence in his entire innocence of the crime for which he was to be hanged. Lest any one should suppose that Mr. Mills showed poor judgment in treating Painter with so much consideration it 6houli be said that three years imprisonment in the Cook County Jail, it is declared, had wrought a great change in Painter's character.

He was the son of a Methodist Presiding Elder, had been religiously trained, and during his youth had been a consistent Christian. After his wanderings had made him a prisoner and an outcast and caused him to live for years under the shadow of the gallows, he recurred to his former religious life. He was an insatiate reader and his books were nearly all of a religious character. He was also a man of intellect, a thinker. So that when the shad-of death gathered around him he was, as Mr.

Mills believes, a sincere Christian and an unusually well-informed man on religious subjects. As Mills himself had only recently become a communicant in the Presbyterian church he naturally felt a Christian sympathy for the dying man. With Painter the Last Night. Mr. Mills arrived at the jail at 10 o'clock the night before the execution, and was at once admitted to the old bath-room just east of the clerk's office, where Painter and the death watch passed the night.

He had not expected to stay long in the repulsive den, but as he conversed with the doomed man a 6ad fascination seized him and the hours passed by unnoticed. The conversation turned at first, of course, on the events of the trial, the character of the evidence, tiie appeal to the Governor, and the fate which had, step by step, led Painter to the agony and shame of the gallows. This led to sketches of personal history, in which Painter's imagination conjured up scene after scene in his youth. pointed out his mistakes, confessed his errors, and bemoaned his misfortunes. Not even the prospect of hanging grieved him so much as the fact that he had been robbed of the sympathy of the public, even when his guilt was seriously doubted.

As the mournful conversation went on one sound after another was hushed. The noise of the last passing vehicle had died away, the hideous and heartless hum of the prison was hushed as the miserables resigned themselves to 6lumber. The occupants of the office had" stolen off for a few hours' sleep. The silence of the grave for a little while reigned in the room. Then, appropriately, the thoughts of all turned to another world, and Painter and Mr.

Mills discussed in low and earnest tones the nature of the soul, the proofs of immortality, the certainty of the resurrection, and the preciousness of the Christian hope. Painter's familiarity with all the religions of all 'ages was something wonderful. He spoke with easy exactness of the hope of the Buddhist, the Brahman, the Zoroastrian, and The men possess appetites which cause hall and loaded for action.

The proprietor of a local hotel had offered Coxey and his were added to those of his parents. The day bhe promised to be his wife he vowed to never again touch a drop of liquor. For four months he kept his word, but the old habit was too strong and one evening when he called upon her he was so visibly nnder tho influence of liquor that she refused to see him.

The suave presence and frequent, visits of the musical director excited the suspicions of the mu-eum attaches, and when he returned yesterday, evening at 6 o'clock they determined to bring the matter to a focus. While the house detective kept a watch on the suspect a messenger was sent to the Central Station for an officer. Detective Weibasky was sent over and suddenly interrupted Sig.

The polite Italian bowed smilingly and accompanied the officer to the Central Station. Did Not Understand It All. There he saw a collection of city sleuths, but being unable to understand a word of English he was at a loss to understand what they meant by their questions and threatening gestures. With the aid of Herman von Gall-witz, a reporter, as interpreter Sig. Mancinelli was informed of the serious charge preferred against him.

Are they then going to behead me?" he asked in a startled way. Why, what a foolish thing. I am director of the Abbey-Grau Opera company." The sleuths smiled incredulously and asked him to produce papers to show his identity. This was quickly done and as the clever thief" faded into a man of responsibility the officers tried to find some way out of the dilemma. Officer Wrelbasky was ordered to accompany Sig.

Mancinelli to the Auditorium, where he could satisfactorily prove his identity. This was an easy matter, and at 7 o'clock Sig. Mancinelli was once more a free man. While he was craving a bottle of champagne with the officer and interpreter a call-boy hastened into tho room to say that they were looking for him everywhere to conduct for Mme. Melba in Faust."

Mancinelli says he visited the museum so often. "I am not in the least offended by my arrest," he said.

I shall treat it as a joke, and I consider it the most interesting experience of my visit to America. I will remember this as a souvenir of Chicago, and a most interesting one, too. Why, do you know when the officer touched me on the shoulder and asked me to accompany him I thought he was an attache of the museum and was going to show me 6ome new sights.

Northen was a prominent member, is the statement that, as he became interested in foreign missions during the session of the Southern Baptist convention of 1893, at the close of his term of office he will devote himself to gospel work. Since 1893 his activity in seeking such alliances as would lead him into the United States Senate rather silenced the old rumor, but his recent declaration that under no circumstances could he allow his name to be used in connection with the Senatorship revived the talk of his having otJher plans ahead which would lead him out of the field of politics into a more congenial field.

Special. Gen. Frye's commonwealers are moving out of East St. Louis. They were notified last evening by Chief of Police Walsh that they would have to leave the city, and this afternoon they moved to a new camp at Casey ville.

Camp Relay was left shortly after noon. The detachment had been presented by citizens with a team and wagon, and the baggage of the soldiers was loaded into the vehicle, relieving, them of their principal burdens. "On to Washington 1" was the cry in camp this morning. The men were all in good spirits and Beemed wholly unmindful of the dreary prospect of an overland march to the National Capital. Gen.

Frye said he was not in the least discouraged by the action of the railways in refusing to carry him and his men. The detachment, he said, would make sixteen miles a day on the march, and as the men were contented and willing he looked forward to a successful trip East. They are walking by the turnpike road.

Giovanni Perugini stepped over to Hoboken one Sunday morningto get married, and already the theatrical gossips are circulating horrible rumors about thtir domestic infelicities. Miss Russell is even reported to have confessed her troubles to some of her friends. Perugini does not like to be crossed, they say, and his wife often has to coax him to come to the theater. There are some people who say Miss Russell will not stand this sort of thing much longer and that negotiations with a well-known tenor now abroad to take I'eru-gini's place have already been begun. Mr.

and Mrs. Perugini were riding today and did not look at all as if any separation was contemplated. E. B. Peiper, Miss Russell's business representative, laughed when questioned about the matter last night.

The prima donna and her husband may have had quarrels, he said, but they were nothing serious. Manager George W. Lederer said the same thing and knew nothing about any plan to engage a new tenor. Neither Miss Russell nor Sig. Perugini would be seen.

Leslie notified the army of what he had done, and without officers the the Confucian, and exposed in a sad, off-hand way their shallowness and unsatisfying character. The infidelity of Paine and Ingersoll made him 6hudder.

He had no affinity for Roman Catholicism, nor for any form of Christianity that indulged pomp and ritualistic display. He pinned his faith without reserve to the Bible, and rested his hope entirely on -Jesus Christ. He fully believed he had a happy immortality in prospect. He spoke with unaffected humility of his sinfulness, but believed his eternal rest and peace secured, i The Dramatic Farewell. In this sort of converse hour after hour glided by, and the party was startled to hear the rattle of a key in the prison.

Soon afterward doors opened, subdued voices were heard, and finally the yawp of hundreds of awakening thugs was heard in the distance. The horror of the situation was too much for Mr. Mills. The fervor of his sympathy compelled him to beat a retreat. He rose to go, and then a never-to-be-forgotten scene was enacted.

Painter's nerve never for a moment forsook him. His voice was firm, but his eyes glistened with tears as he held Mr. Milis by the hand and showered on him such blessings as no one except a man in such a position could think of. He looked as if he could kiss Mr. Mills' very feet in the depth of his gratitude.

Mr. Mills, too, was profoundly moved. There was only one thing he could do, and he did it. With tremulous voice he recorded a vow that as long as life should last he would devote himself to an attempt to expose the injustice and iniquity of Painter's sentence. With these words on his lips he walked, or 6taggered, from the chamber of death.

Mr. Mills has never until lately mentioned the subject of his night with Painter, much less his intention to vindicate his name and memory. But Paintex was hardly in his coffin before the plans talked over with him for discovering the murderer of Alice Martin-were partly put into execution, and from that day to this the work has been pushed forward with as much vigor as if his life could still be FOR FREER TRADE WITH UNCLE SAM. ents that she had sent him. Two days later a reconciliation took place, but it was only by solemnly swearing to reform that Arthur was given one more chance by bis sweetheart.

Laparle Commits the Crime. Nearly every evening after dinner Lapurl has called at the Allen residence. Last night he was earlier than usual and plainly under the influence of liquor. It was about 8 :30 o'clock when he arrived. His fiancee met him at the door and together they walked into the front parlor.

She took his hat and hung it on an easel on which rested a life-size portrait of herself, and then they sat down together upon a couch on the west side of the room, directly opposite the door. They had been there only a few moments when Mrs. Allen, the girl's mother, came to the door and said good evening to Laparle. He asked her to come in, but she refused, saying she was reading the evening paper. Something was said about the weather and then Mrs.

Allen returned to the back part of the house. Mr. Allen was there reading and his wife took a seat at the opposite side of the table and took up the paper she had laid down when she went to the parlor to speak to her prospective son-in-law. Probably five minutes had passed when a shot was heard from the front parlor. The shot was followed by three loud and terrified screams from Miss Allen.

The startled father and mother dropped their papers and rushed to the parlor. As they ran Mrs. Allen cried out: "What is that! What is that I What has Arthur done?" An they reached the parlor door Laparle placed the revolver to his neck and sent a bullet crashing upwards, through the top of his head. My God screamed the terrified mother, "he has killed my child!" Miss Allen lay across the couch and Laparle fell forward on his face at her feet. Mrs.

Alien continued to scream hysterically and to wring her hands. Her husband ran to his dying daughter and attempted to raise her. Minnie, Minnie, speak to me f' he said. But she was beyond the power of epeech. At this moment H.

W. Green, who lives in the first floor flat at No. 476 and who had heard the shots and screams, came running in. Stepping over the prostrate form of young Laparle he took the dying girl by the hand and felt for her pulse. Last Flutter of Her Heart.

But her pulse had ceased to beat. He told the father to step aside and hastily tore open the girl's dress and put his ear above the heart. There were a few faint flutters and then the girl was dead. By this time Mrs. Vandermark, who waa passing the house at the time of the shooting, went in and following her were a number of the neighbors.

Some one ran for a doctor and some one else for the police. Laparle was taken to the back parlor and efforts were maie to revive him. Dr. Holroyd came in a few minutes later and along with him came Leparle'a brother. As his brother came in young Laparle opened his eyes and put out his hand to his brother and attempted to speak.

He made an inarticulate sound and then became unconscious. The ambulance had arrived by this time and Laparle was removed to the County Hospital. Last Monday Miss Allen told her cousin, Mrs. Vandermark, that Arthur had proposed LQmiinued on faurtl page. sweet morsel for a prodigal.
