The Third Day of timTiInl The Govern
ment Opens Its Case With the Testi
mony of Ex-Doorkeeper Donaldson
What Oilier Witnesses Saw nnd
Judge Hradlcy came Into the Criminal
Court promptly oil lime this morning and
was shortly followed by lho altorne.vs
and tho defendant.
iiiMtv w. nnrvvKii,
n civil engineer living In Georgetown, was
the first witness placed on the stand In be
half of the Government. Ho tcstlllcd that
ho had mado the diagram of tho corridor
in the Capitol where the shooting oc
curred, Mr. llrtwcr explained lo the Jury
the diagram that he had made and pointed
out the position on tho steps in vv hich the
two men were supposed lo hnvo stood
when lho fatal shot was fired.
was next placed on tho stand. He testi
fied as follows: "I have known bothTnttl
beo nnd Kiticald since 1H-C, and saw them
at tho Capitol on February L'Vsoo llrst
nt the door of the House and then In the
House restaurant. Tnulbco and f were
together, and 1 llrst saw Klncald
about 11! 30 o'clock In tho cor
ridor, and afterward at tho main
door of tho House of Itcpresentatives.
Tattlbec mm I met nt tho ton of thosouth
ern steps and he said. "Ham, what e'"
you want?" "Oh, nothing particular,"
was the answer. Tuulbeo Iheii took up
right arm and wo started down thestcps.
On the lauding we saw Judge Klncald,
Klncald taid, ''You can see mc now,"
and about the samo tlmo there was a
lash from n pistol and Taulbeo staggered.
At tho tlmo the two men were about
four feet apart. Taulbeo put his hnnd to
his head and started down tho stairs; and
I paid to Klncald, "Don'tshoot again."
Taulhec started down tho steps and
Klncald was the ilrst to follow. At that
time there wcro tvvcnty-tlvoor thirty peo
ple In tho corridor below,
Some one asked "who shot that man?'1
and Klncald answered:
Taulbeo and I separated then and I did
not sco him again until I went to his
room, half an hour later, with Congress
man McMUliu of Tennessee. I also visited
him several times at tho Providence Hos
pital and was with him 011 tho llth of
March, vvnen lie died.
Judge Orosvenorthcn took up tho cross
examination. The witness said: "I am a
lawyer, was doorkcepcrof the House In
the Forty-ninth Congress nnd afterward
kept the House Itestnurant. Have acted
at times for the Western Union Company
and aided In tho pasago of other hill's
, "Did von ever mako a speech before a
comnilttcfl?" nskcilGcner.il Grosvcnor.
"No sir" was tho answer.
"What then did you do," continued tho
"Have Igot to answer these nucstlons?"
asked the w Itncss of Judgo Jlradlev,
,'No, you do not Inn 0 to reveal lho busi
ness of your clients," replied tho Judgo.
"I do not know what 1 was ctoinir at tho
Capitol that day and had ;no Interest In
common with Mr. Taulbee, whom I met
In the restaurant with Mr. liradshaw of
Indiana and Mr. Pell of Arkansas, Wo
parted then and I said that I would meet
him at tho door of tho Military Commit
tee room or tho telegraph olliec. Thcro
was no business relations existing between
us at tho time,''
"Why, then, were you so anxious to
sec Taulbeo?" questioned General O'ros
1110r. The question was objected toby District
Attorney Cede, on tho ground that It
necessitated the revealing of prlvuto busi
ness Unit existed between laulbee and
Doth Judgo Wilson and General Gros
vcnor argued that they ought to bo al
lowed to ascertain from tho witness why
ho and Tmilbee had so many mysterious
meetings ot the Capitol that day.
Jiuljfollrailley sustained thu objection,
and an exception was noted.
"Did jou not their go In tho Capitol to
prevent jiuuuco irom making nn as
sault on Klncald?" asked General Gros
'venor, "No, sr," replied Mr, Donaldson, "but
I was aware that theio was trouble
brewing between them."
Wllntss admitted that he was ut dinner
nl tho tame tablo with Mrs. Mary A.
Mcllinoro the evening alter tho shooting.
"Did you not tell her that Taulbeo had
pulled Ulncald's ear and told him to arm
himself'1 was tho question.
"If I did It was simply hcresay," rc
plhd tho witness,
Tho witness then continued ; "I did not
express a wish that Klncald would bo con
victed, neither did I mako any threats
toward him after tho shooting. Of
course, Taulbeo and I had been lrlendly
for some time, but! had 110 imrtlcular
feeling toward Klncald,'
Clarence P. l.ovell of lloston tcstlllcd
that ho was In tho Capitol on the daj- of
thu shooting. Ho said "I did not know
either Klncald or Tuulbce, but know
'Ihoiuas Donaldson, and met him ou tho
Mcps that day. He was with another gen
tleman, and they were about half way
down the steps leading from tho upper to
tbo lower corridor, 1 suppose tho gintliv
man with Donaldson was Mr, Taulbee.
They had their anus locked. I heard
some 0110 speak, and Hun (heir c.tmothu
llash and rcimrt of a pistol nltuost timid
taiicouslj. I did not hear what was
said, and do not know how many
p(Oplo were on mo stairway.
1 heard some ono ask' "Who shot that

fendant rcpi 1, "I did; forhulnsullcdino
this morning. Ho then gavn himself up
lo mi otllcer ant the man who had been
shot was carried into an ante-room.
On cross examination Mr, Lovcll said
that his occupation was Unit of a shlii
broker and that his acquaintance with
Mr. Donaldson had been limited.
"'lho occurrence," ho added, "was a
complete surprise to 1110 and I think tho
location ou the step Is about ns shownjou

were two or three 111010 men on t lie stutr
