John Ilognn, n detective, testified
that ho had taken McDow from tho

allow tho jury to go out. Surgeon

some surgical points. This closed the

Hon. Amos J. Ctimmlngs' graphic ic
pott of tho trial yesterday in this morn
ing's New York Sun is, hi part, ns.fol
lows: As Dr. McDow nrosc nnd walked to
tho witness box nil oyes wcro turned
upon lilni; ovoiy fan ceased moving.
Tho Doctor wns sworn, nnd sat down as
straight as nn arrow. Ho woro n light
four-in-hand tlo nnd n dark suit, lie
was quite pale. Ho placed his right
hand upon his knee and rested tils left
upon his hip. Ho was apparently vcty
cool, nnd showed no signs of agitation.
After giving his name and residence lie
said that ho well remembered tho 12th
of March last. It was Impressed upon
his memory because on that day ho
killed Cnptnln Dawson. Do had known
the Cnptnln by sight, but had never lind
any conversation with him until thn'
day. Ills feeling toward him wa;
pleasant. There was no icason wiiy it
should ho otherwise.
"I met him Hint day,1' ho said, "in
tho vestibule of my house. I was In
the sitting-room up stairs, when I heard
the sound of tho gong. As I wns
wailing for dinner, I did not wait for u
hcrvant to open tho door. I opened It
myself. Captain Dawson said: 'Arc
you Dr. McDow?' I lcpllcd: 'I nm
Dr. McDow.' Ho said: '1 nm Cnptaln
Dawson.' 'Walk in, Cptnint' I an
swercd. Ho had n domineering air
and wns nggrcssivo utuWinltnhlo. As
wo entered tho ollico tho Cnptaln said:
'Dr. McDow, I have just been In
formed of your ungcntlcmanly con
duct to one of my servants.' I leplied:
'That I hnvc been ungcntlcmanly to
ono of your servants is untitle. ' I felt
indignant at tho words. Tho Captain
was n lnigo, muscular mnn. I w.s n
mcic pigmy at ids side. Ho nc.t said:
'I glvoyou to undcistand, blr, thatsho
Is under my protection, and I forbid
you to speak to her.' I leplied that I
.should speak to her when I pleased
nnd until ho showed some authoilty
for his Interference. Ho said: 'If you
speak to her again I shall publish you
In my paper. I replied: 'If you do,
you infernal scoundrel, I shall hold
you responsible. Now get out of my
ofllce.' Ho instnntly struck mo over
tho head with his cane. At the samo
time he used his fist and knocked me
acioss tho lounge.
"Whilo I was endcavoihi" to lesume
my footing nnd in Iso from tho sofa the
Cnptnln followed mo up nnd struck mo
again on tho head with his cauc. Tho
blow left n slight contusion upon the
left sldo of my head. I was nfraid of
losing my life. I did not know but
what tho uo.xt blow would kill mo. I
wns positive Hint I was nbout to lecclvc
scveio bodily harm. My impulse was
to save myself. I had n pistol In my
hip pocket. I used it for piotcctlou.
I arose in close proximity to the Captain
nnd Hied. Ho seemed to be lu ftotit of
Judgo Mcdrath (sternly): "What do
you mean, sir, by saying lie seemed to
The witness Immediately left out tho
"Ho was in fiont of mo, hut I have
a confused Idea of tho evict situation,"
ho said. "I habitually entry a pistol
because I think it necessary. I had
put tho pistol into my pocket thai
morning. As soon ns tho shot wai
tired tho Cnptnln gioancd and inur
iniued, 'You've killed me.' I icpllcd,
'You hnve tried to tnko my life, sir, and
now I hnvo taken yours,' Ho stug
geicd townul tho desk In tho back of
tho otllco mid fell In tho angle of the
room between tho bookenbo and tho
wall. I blood for n moment dumb
founded. I then fell of hit pulse. The
idea of calling In medical attendance
Hashed tluough my mind, hut 1 saw
that ho was dying; that ho
wns In fact nlrcady dead. I
lost all self-conttol after 1 had flied tho
, shot. I was not uwnre, that tho pistol
' was pointed nt any vital part of tho
body, Tho shot was fired not for tho
purpose of killing liiin, hut for my own
protection. I would hnvo preferred to
dlsnblo him. I felt that ho had Insulted
mo and that an unpiovoked Injury lind
been dona to me. If possible I would
hnvo icstorcd him to life, but tho wound
wns fatal and ho was dead. 1 was hor
tilled and bewildcicd, for I well knew
of tho scandal that was sine to follow
tho occuircnco. In my despair 1 Ilist
hid his hat nnd cane In the sink In tho
ynid, whcio thoy wcionftenvnid found.

dnik closet. I had no coutiol over my
icason. I scnicely know what I did,
I lifted tho body by tho nuns nnd drew
it Into tho hall, 1 then diow tho mills
fiom tho djior of the closet nnd toio up
tlio llooilng. Finding tlial theio wns
not loom enough to hide tho body
under tho floor, 1 got n spado nnd dug
a hole. I throw tho cnitli against tho
scantlings nnd placed tho body
In tho hole. 1 got tho spado
fiom tho stablo. U icqiilied
much exertion to lift tho body nnd
ding It lntd"Tiio closet. After it had
been placed In tho holo I icalUcd that
my notions wero foillsli and altogether
wiong. Tho unwonted oxcrllou seemed
to have restored my reason. 1 wns en
tluly exhausted mill went out for nil
I mndo up my mind to letiiiu the body
to tho ofllce nnd suircndcr myself. I
came lack nnd mndo sovcr.il eltoitstq

It by the hnnd nnd tried to rnlso tho

fatigued, As the closet wns qulto dark,
I went out nnd bought n candle. When
I rcturncdl lighted tho cnndloand ngaln
tried to cxlrlca'e tho body. Tho head
lay undcrn beam on n pleeoof tho Moor

doied oir the house and walked up
nnd down the loom pulling my hnir. I
finally determined to sitnendcr myself
Immediately. I gave myself up to Po
liceman Gordon, who drove mo to tho
station-house. Thcro I was manacled
nnd cnnlcd to tho jail in tho patrol
wagon. I protested ngalnst this In
dignity, but was told that it was dono

At about 0 o'clock last night there
was n crash on tho west sldo of Eleventh
street, nbout 100 feet north of Pcnnsyl
vnnln avenue, Theru was tho. rush of
a crowd of pcoplo to tho spot and It
was seen Hint tho end of tho rear wall
on tlio noitli sldo of tho Star building
had fallen outward. Tlio collapto ex
posed tlio ciiglno-rooin, whero tho power
Is supplied for tho Slav presses, and
wrecked that part of tho build
ing and left tho newspaper without
tho machinery for Its dally Issue.
Tlio excavation north of the build
lug had not been cnirted on with
all tho discretion tlio occasion do
mnnded. Tho wenknoss of tho exposed
wnll was not eulllcicntly considered.
It wns discovered nt nn cnily hour
Hils morning that It would not bo pos
slbloto get ihoSfar'ncntlio machinery
In order for tlio mechanical work of
tho dny. Something had to bo dono,
nnd something wns dono at onco with
vigor nnd Ingenuity. It was decided
that tho presses might bo run with
n stntlonnry engine loented In
tho street, nnd n good-sied en
gine of Hint sort, bcfoio tho forenoon
wns ended, stood nstrldo tho gutter In
front of tho Slur building ready to
exert what forco It could to put tho
heavy machinery in motion. Firo was
got up, tho proper connections made
and the engine puffed and heaved nnd
snorted, it was all of no nvntl. Tho
boiler wns n lnigo ono, but not enough
power wns gcncinted to give llfo to tho
machinery inside. Some other rccourso
must be had.
Tlio engine was n flftecn-horso power
nnd It failed to budge tho pondcious
machinery that every afternoon puts tlio
finishing touches to tho Star paper.
The cntiro forco enmo out to sco tlio
thing dono nnd concentrntcd their in
tellectual powers upon tho doing of it,
but tho presses wnntcd n rest nnd they
got It. So Hits project, was aban
doned and tho cngino was left
gasping nftcr Its futile attempt, still
astraddle tlio sidewalk. Then they tried
another tact. A council of war was
held, and it was decided to call upon
Colonol Lemon, Son delegation visited
tho genial gentlcmnn, who runs tho
National Tribune nnd sits In a big nrm
chair between times. Tho Colonel was
glad of tlio chance, nnd placed his
press-room nt tho disposal of ids es
teemed contemporary. Tlio presses Hint
turn out the 200,000 edition of tho
great boltller paper nrc largo, but not
milto the sl70 of tho "Star paper."
The delegation sntlsfled themselves of
this by nctunl mcnsuicmcnt, but It
could not bo helped, nnd tho columns
lind to bo shortened.
"How much?" nsked u Ciutio ro
poller of Mr. Knuffmnn.
"Oh, about so 1 " said thn President,
putting his thumb on tho llrst joint or
his lndc finger.
"Well, tho nctunl damage to tho
machinery will t bo over $ 100 or i?00,
but tho Incidental expenses will bo n
gient deal moie. When wo found Hint
tho cngino wouldn't woik wo telo
ginphcd to New Yoik for tluco dyna
mos, nnd a man followed tho dispatch
to sco Hint it wns attended to Imme
diately. All this costs money.
Ao hnvo lccclvcd n icply,
nml tho machines will likely bo
shipped Immediately. Wo expect them
to-iuntiow, and ns soon as they nulvo
wo will get tho power fiom tho United
Stntes llcctrlu Lighting Company.
Thue is cvciy reason to think that tills
scheme will woik. It is. of couiso.
only n temporary nirniigemcnt, and It
Is hoped that oui lepalis will bo com
pktid lu tiino for Satuiday's Issue. All
this costs money, nnd tho losses will
not bo much less than $2,000."
