InUnmination In Now 1'onrcil In Alitor'
Condition A Moat Singular Caso
"Iho Doctors Do Not Hnvo Much to
"llo Is no better, nml I don't think
. Hint Iio Is any worse, either," said
'Mrs. Henry Adlcr, young Maurice
Adlcr's mother, this morning.

tors telling her after their consultation
each morning that ho could not live,
Iter son's cheerful hopefulness, though
Ills limbs, even to his fingers nnd toes,
nro paralyzed, all this tho poor woman
has borne up tinder for ten days now.
Tho three doctors Haync, JJIalr and
Wngncr, collected about tho wounded
man s bedside In tho back parlor of tho
liouso, nt 008 II street, this morning at
10:30, ns is usual, for their dally consul
lntlon. Adler was a trifle weaker than
ycstculay. Ills temperature was a trlllo
higher, giving warning of that; dreaded
foo of recovery, Inflammation. Tho
pulse was a trlllo less regular and flut
tered more rapidly. "Itis only n ques
tion of time and endurance," said Dr.
llayno. Adlor was cheerful and hope
ful. He has been so all tho time. Ills
limbs gave no evidence of n lessening
of tho paralysis. "When you lift his
leg it drops llko a log," said Mrs. Adler.
During tho doctors' consultation old
Mr. Adlcr, Morris' father, camo into tho
loom, but tho doctors had no word of
encouragement for him.
Dr. Agncw nnlvcd fioin Philadel
phia at '2 o'clock this afternoon, nnd
was Immediately joined by Dri. Bivno,
McDIalr, J, Ford Thompson, Wng
ner Iicrhcus. After nn examina
tion duilng which It was found
that Adlcr's condition was unchanged,
n consultation was held, which
lasted until 3:10 p. m. Dr.
Agnow declared himself In en
tlio accord with thu Washington
physicians In tho belief that thcio was
liono for Adlcr's recovery.
Maurlco Adlcr's case Is one of ic
marknblo uniqueness. Tho doctors
liavo been quoted as saying that an In
Btanco of a man similarly wounded
living over four days Is uniccordcd
That they all three said tills, though
is now denied. The caso has nover yo
been completely diagnosed. Tho buflo
hasnevcr been more than approximately
located. r Blnco tho nresent nhvslelaus
look hold of the caso hut little If any
effort has been mado to locate tho
.bullet on account of the danger such
nn ntlempt is fraught with, lint until
tho bullet Is located it Is of course lm
pnsslblo to accurately dlngnosa the
wounded man's Injuries. It Is from
tho paralysis symptons that tho doctors
nrguo tho injuiy to tho spinal column,
which would most certainly cnuso such
A doctor just now connected with tho
caso mado nn attempt to locate tho bul
let, piobably ono of only two such nt
tempts that wcro made. Thoiciison Is
that piobing for tho bullet with an or
dinary steer probo would bo attended
with almost Inevitable danger. Hut
this doctor, Dr. Itldloy, Instead of
using a stiff steel probe, used a flexible,
30ft lubber catheter. This could not
possibly causo any injury nnd It Indi
cated In a general way the courso of tho
wound. And, oddly enough, this Indl
cated that tho ball instead of going
townul tho splnnl column, ns It Is sup
noted to have done, and leally mutt
Jmvc done to causo tho paralytic symp
toms tho wounded man exhibits, went
tho other way and did not injure tho
spinal column at nil.
Another thing about tho cave that Is
peculiar, and would give foico to Dr.
llldley's catheter exploration, Is tho
fact that tho night of tho shooting
Adlcr's Injuries wcro supposed to b'y
comparatively slight, and the mninlng
papers tho day after tho shooting an
nounced that ho was not necessarily
llnugeiously hint. Of courso they Im
mediately on the succeeding day
changed this, nnd made Adlcr's Injuries
of tho most giavo soit. Hut tho odd
part of it is that Adlcr's lnjuilcs did
seem qulto Ulvlnl thonightof tho shoot
ing. If paralysis was caused by an In
juiy to the spinal column, such ns
Adler is repoitcd to hnvo suffered, ho
would liavo been Instantly killed. If
ho was nunc slightly injiued, If tho
damage or pressiuo on tho spinal cord
vtns not sci Ions enough to cause death,
but serious enough to causo paralysis,
this paralysis would of courso have
been ns seilous as soon ns tho wound
was inado as nt nny llmo after.
If the paralysis was cnuscd by tho
bullet striking the spinal cord It would
have began instantly nnd been ns com
plete nt the Instant tho injury was in
dieted ns at nnv subseuuent time. Bit
It Is known positively that wldlo Adlcr
was Ij Ing on tho maiblo floor of the sa
loon where he was shot ho exhibited tin
symptoms, oven of tho most rudimen
tary toit, of nny painlysls. Ho was ex
nm'Ined for symptoms of paralysis
"Can you ralso your leg? ho was
nsked, Adlcr raised ono nnd then the
Mlior of his legs. "Can you movo
your arms?" Adlcr moved his nuns.
Ho could not liavo done nny of theso
things If ho linil been pnrnlycd or if
1 Ids wound had been serious enough to
causo tho paralysis that has since been
A still moro peculiar fact Is this,
which Is absolutely vouched for: Aflei
Adlcr had been lcmovcd to his home,
undtcsscd nnd put to bed, sumo ono
railed who wished to look at tho wound,
Adlcv was lying on his b.ick In bed,
suuounded by ids family and filemls.
Ho was asked it ho could turn over so
as to nllow an examination of tho
wound. Without oven tho slightest as
sistance Adler turned over onto his fnco
and lcmnlned in that position while tho
wound was being examined. It only
took 11 fow minutes, nml tho turning
over would hnvo been easy enough to a
man not pninlycd, but" for 0110 para

Tho following Is from Amos J. Cum
nilngs' graphic teport lu tho New York
Sun of tho proceedings lu the JIcDow
trial after thu close of Tim Cnii'io's
stoiy of yesterday:
Jlr. Jcrvcy, tho District Attorney,
went Into tho solicitor's room, brought
out tho blood-stained clothes Captain
Dawson woio and Dr. McDow's hat,
and placed them on thu tailing near his
tnblc. The spaco in Front of
the jury bo.x was cleared, so
that no one remained betweert
the District Attorney nnd tho
iuiors. The prosecuting oillccr nrrnnged
Ills notes nnd confronted the jury. His
right hnnd icstcd upon tho tabic nnd
ills left upon his hip. Dr. McDnw
pulled his gold watch from his pocket
nnd glanced nt tho time. It wns high
noon. Ho then rested his check unon
his hnnd nnd prepared to listen to the
argument, Tho District Attorney began
by asking the Judgo to Include, the fol
lowing In his chnrgo to tho Jury:
1. That no anger, however violent, will
mltlgnto the guilt of him who snatches rt
deadly weapon upon provocation, by words
only, no matter how hard to ho homo, and
where anger excited by blows, has, accord
ing to tho frequent course ot nature, In
dented with Its gratification, and blows
Siren in return, liavo redoubled upon
lout, malice lll lie persumed from un
reasonable and disproportionate excess of
'J. That It tho act which produces death
be attended with such circumstances ns In
dicated a wicked, depraved and malignant
spirit, the law wilt imply malice without
reference to what was passing In tho pris
oner's mind at the time.
3. That inalleo docs not consist alouo of
a formed design to kill another. All that
Is necessary Is that ho should have con-
cened inu uesign 10 commie ou assault
upon him or an assault and battery upon
him, and lu consequence ot that lie dies.
That Is minder, whether ho meant to Kill
him or not. A formed design to talco
life Is not necessary to make a Willing mur
der. 4. 'the accused Is not to bo tho Judgo as
to tho necessity of taking tho deceased's
life, but tho Jury Is to judgo of ihat neces
6. To iiiako out a caso of self-dofcnco two
things aro necessary. First, tho cvldeuco
should satisfy tho Jury that tho accused
actually believed that ho was In such Im
mediate danger of losing his life or sus
taining serious bodily haim that It was
necessary for his own protection to tako
tho life ot his assailant. Second, that the
circumstances lu which tho accused was
placed was such ns would, In tho opinion
of tho Jury, justify such a belief hi the
mind of tho pcuou possessed of ordinary
firmness nnd reason. It Is not a question
which depends solely upon tho belief which
tho accused may liavo entertained, but the
question Is what Is his belief, and whether
uuder all the circumstances, as they existed
at the tlmn tho violence was Inflicted, the
jury think ho ought to hivo formed such
Mr. Jcrvcy, In continuation, said that
minder wns killing with malice ufoio
thought. Tho defenso hero admitted,
thu killing. It also admitted Hint the
defendant mndo nn elf 01 1 to cruicenl the
body, nnd that his iclntlons with it lady
gavu him n motive for the klllltig. Thu
accused sas that hu killed tho Captain
In fcclf-defeno. Tho lnw does not glvo
him the light to tako llfo oxcept when
his own llfo is In danger or ho Is fcirful
nf gicnt bodily harm. Tliolmois had
to Judgo from tho evidence of tho neces
sity. Thu evldcneo hciu tests upon Dr.
McDow's statements alone. Thu testi
mony of Captain Dawson Is foicvcrlost.
Thu details llo In thu hi cast of only
ono human witness, nnd that witness
Is tho prisoner. His statement is to bo
weighed In tho light of Jds Intciest In
tho case. Ills llfo Is now ically at
slnkc. No living witness can contra
dict his stntcment. PIncu yoiiisclvM In
his place. Would uny ono of you tell
thu ti nth If that truth put tho halter
aiimud your neck V Tho law makes the
licensed a competent witness, but it
can't make him a ci edible witness, nnd
he hns shown that hu will dcpait tiom
tho tiuth to benefit his enso. llccou
fcttcd that ho lied because, ho thought
It would help him out of his trouble.
Hu acknowledged thnt he mado falso
statements to tho lcpoiters concerning
tho pistol, bccnuo hu thought It would
bo to his nil vantage.
This nvcinicnt stcmed to nettle Dr.
McDow. Ho scowlid at thu spe.ikcr,
but othci wise icmalucd culm and col
lected. Mr, Jcrvcy nut contended thnt Dr.
McDow's own testimony showed thnt
tho necessity for taking llfo had not
aflH'ii, The law might nccusohlm, but
It could not acquit him. Ileio Mr,
Jcivcy picked up Cnptnln Dawson's
cane ami llcmilshcd It ucfeno tho Jury,
it is 11 light Malacca, with a thin, silver
head. It weighs llo nml tlueo-quniter
ounces, but this fuel wns not put In

said Mi. Jeivcy, wnving It over tho
Mr. Jeivey then argued that thcie
wns no fincns In tho Doctor's olllcu.
Dnwsou's -wound, llko Cicsnr'B, speaks

backwmd. It Is finycd on tho sldu

This is nn Indication Hint It went In that
ill lection. Tho sauio thing Is shown In

ncy was In a normal Ktnle. Piofessor
Kfnloch shows that tho coursu of tho
bullet wns from behind forward. This
accounts for tho bruising of tlio kid
ney nnd tho cutting of ttiu vena civn.
It Is n mathematical fact that thcro wns
no deflection, nnd even Dr. Michel says
thcio wns none. Tho courso of the
bullet gives the He to the prisoner's
story of nn encounter. If Cnptnln Daw
son wns striking him when ho fltcd the
fatal shot and stnnding lu front of him.
ns Dr. MpDow nsseits, tho bullet would
hnvo entered tho left sldo. That would
have been the sldu turncij toward tho
accused, and not the light. No mnti
strikes another with n enne In Ids right
hand nnd his light sldo toward his op
poncnt, unless he bo left handed. Tho
bullet wound Indicates thnt Captain
Dawson was probably shot ns he wns
going out, while tho accused wns sitting,
nt tho desk where he had flist said that
he got the pistol.
