The prosecution In the Johnson mur
der case this afternoon proceeded with
Its testimony on rebuttal Captain
White of l'oart City was tho witness
called He said that he had known
Johnson far eight yearn nnd had nevei
thought him to be Insane.
Deputy Sheriff Chris Holt of Wnla
tine was called next. He slated that ho
had known tho defendant when ha
worked for his mother In School street,
and later on when he worked for his
sister, Mrs. Kentwell.
"How did he talkT" asked Deputy
Attorney (leneral l'rosscr.
"He was very rational to me."
"Was there anything about his talk
which would lead you to believe that
he was not sane?"
"I think ho was sane, but I don't
think he was right. That is, he was
not educated. From what 1 saw I think
that he was sane, the same as uny oth
er man. I never saw him otherwise
Kent well's for three weeks unci saw
Kentwclls for threo weeks nnd snw
the defendant constantly."
Holt believed that Johnson was sane
because of his observation of him und
the conversations ho had hint with him.
Ho had last spoken wfth Johnson lust
Wednesday in tho court room.
Harrison objected to the admission
of this conversation In evidence, and u
length) argument followed, which end
ed by the objections being sustuincd.

heavy rains set In for several hours,
during which time tho wreckage was
