but never read any accounts of Aider's

closely upon thu injury to thu spinal

"Do you not know, Doctor," said Mr.

Tho remarkable luck of memory which
Dr. Maclllalr exhibited rogardlng Adier's
treatment aroused Mr. Coleman's auger.
"I am almost through with you.
Doctor." ho said, "but 1 wish you would
remember something about this easo."
Witness did not know how much mor
phine was given to tho patient, or huw
often It was administered.
"Did not Maurice Adler dlo of Sep

"What authority In medicine hud you
for advising Hie cutting operation ot

The vitncs denied tills, saving that lie
could not say eMictly at what time tlie use
of tonics and sllmiilauts were added. All
the prescriptions were prepared by Dr.
Eayne, but nothing whs given to Hie

He watclKil tho wound at all times, but
never treated It. An ojieratlon wnscr

Witness did not notice mi) bed sores on
tho patient prior lo thoocrullon, llodld

after the operation. Ho did not know
that anything elc besides tho wound
caused tlio lieu sores, but lie had never
examined the patient to discover whether
an v inner cnusu lor tnem existeu.
Witness believed that Adlcr would die
when he attended him ou theniglit of Hie
tragedy, and thought that he would dio
the next (lay. He never thought Hint
Adler would get well.
Mr. Coleman at this point referred ton
scraji-book containing n number of nevvs
pnperrciKiriMof Adier's condition on tho

death. Tlie only matter dischaiged from
thu wound was blood, and at somo llmu
there might have been some puss.
Witness did not remember when mor

Dr. John AN . Ilayna-was next culled to

Maurice Adlcr between II and Pi o'clock
on the night of Juno IS. Hu found
Adler in a lied In the back room of the
second story of his homo, WW II street,
lie found him completclv paralyzed. Hu
believed that Adlcr died fromexliauslioii,
produced by tlio wound. Witness was
then asked where the bullet was found In

with a small, blunt silver probe, but did
not succeed in llnding It. He did nut
touch anything but some muscle and was
certain ho did not approach thu spinal

because there was a dlfferciao of opinion
as to tho treatment of Adler. Alter prob

r.uy other operation upon the patient. lie
wrote several prescriptions, however, tho

was an antiseptic dressing for tlio wound.

Those answers were derived from Dr.
llayne with a great deal of trouble, as
there was a coustnnt wrangling between
Mr. Colcnuili and witness. Witness cor
rected tho statement of Dr. Mcllhiir regard

upon tho wound. It was performed on

and was administered at intervals of four
or Iho hours. It was afterward increased
to one-half a grain, and was for tlio pur

lier, and were continued up to Adier's
death. Tlio witness did not know to how

Witness was present at Hie autopsy, and
found that tho ball struck Adler square in
tho hack of the neck, and struck tlio
vertebra, but did not sever the spinal cord.
The ojiciation on Adler was performed,
witness said, by Dr. l'linl Thompson, Tlio
patient was placed under tlio Inlhiencoot
(thorauil tho fractured parts removed
witli a pair of bone forceps.
At l-:'M a recess was taken until 1
o'clock, Dr. llayne still being ou tho

mony the court-room began to till up,
and when tho recess was taken tho usual
large crowd of spectators assembled out

When the tiinl was resumed after tho

Coleman resumed hlsoainhiatloii.
Dr. llayne tostllled that ho did not

tinued pressure and want of nutrition
were tlio causes) of Hie sores. Ilxcenslvo
