The conditions were slightly more difficult to contend with than usual, the time for rehearsals being more limited than ever la-fore.

Ellen give flatly contradictory testimony, the latter having been an eyewitness. They agree, however, that something hup|K ncd, which fact the Major comments utH n. The testimony of the captured leader— obtained by Sertor Pilero, the interpreter was not very satisfactory, owing to the Presidente’s Spanish. The court unanimously decides that the cadet.
