An Interesting Day In the Murder
Trial at Now Bedford.
Dr. .Bowen Tell of Prescribing;
Double Morphine Dom for Lizzie.
NEW BEDFORD, Maes., Juno 8.
The Court-House was opened before the
regular time for the Borden trial this
, k morning, and at the main entrance the
I Inquisitive females who had swallowed
their breakfasts hurriedly or dispensed
with them entirely made one of tho
prettiest rushes ever seen outside of col
The two blue-coated representatives of
the local pollco were carried off their
feet and whirled along with the resist
less pettlcoated surge from below until
several deputy sheriffs Jumped down to
their rescue snd turned the tlde. Tho
result was that the pushers were 'kept
out entirely, while those who acted In
a fairly decent manner were allowed the
coveted privilege of fighting for seats
Miss Borden was In her seat fifteen
minutes before tho Court came In, and
1 eagerly looked over the contents of a
big, official-looking envelope which 'she
afterwards passed to ex-Gov. Robinson.
Just as tho Court came in and tho
crier was making his proclamation, Miss
' Borden was passing from her seat In the
I dock to a sent within the bar lnclosure
beside her counsel. She was obliged to
land almost beside Judge Blodgett while
the crier was talking.
Dlt. BOWEN TO THE STAND.
The first wltnens called for was Mrs.
Churchill, a previous call for Dr. Bowen
having been rescinded, but she not be
ing present. Dr. Bowen was put on.
He said! "I have lived at my present
reau.iwtwcnty-ono years It is ding-,
onnlly opposite the" Borden house. I
linvo been the family physician nearly
all that time. I recall the day of Aug.
4, 1802. I saw Mr. Borden the day be
fore, about 6 O'clock, going down the
"I think it was after 11 and before 11.30
that I returned to my house In the
morning of the murder. 'When I re
turned Mrs. Bowen spoke to me, and In
consequence of that 1 went to the Bor
den house. I saw M'ch Lizzie Borden
and Mrs. Churchill there. They were In
tho Bide hall, just at the end of It, near
the kitchen door; I said, 'Lizzie, what's
the matter?' She Bald. 'Father has been
killed, or stabbed.' I asked: 'Where Is
your father?" She said: 'In the sitting
room.' "That was all that was said In that
connection at that time. I went into the
dining-room and then Into the sitting
room. I saw the form of Mr. Borden
lying on the sofa at tho left of the sitting-room
door. I found upon inspection
thtt his faco was badly cut, apparently
with a sharp instrument; felt of his
pulse and was satisfied he was dead.
I glanced about the room and saw that
nothing was dUturbed. He was lying
on his right side, with his face towards
the south. The face was hardly recog
nizable." A PICTURE OF THE MURDERED
Here a photograph of the murdered
man was shown and Identified. During
the showing of the picture Lizzie kept
her eyes riveted on the floor, never
once glancing up. Witness Bald, In ex
plaining the plcturo to the jury.
"The head Is lower than It was; the
eofa has been moved; It was, when I
saw It, even with the door. With refer
ence to the back of the sofa, the head
is substantially as when I caw It."
Witness, continuing, said: "As I went
to the sitting-room Lizzie followed me
part way, and us I turned to go out
I after finding her father was dead, I
asked her If she had seen any one and
she said no. I nsked her where she hal
been, and she said, 'In the barn to p,et
Bomo Iron.' She said she was afraid
her father had had trouble with some
of his tenants. Then I asked her to
get something to cover Mr, Borden and
Bridget brought me a sheet.
"The sheet was brought from Mr.
Bcrden'B room, and the key was taken
from the mantel, I believe, where It was
usually kept. After the sheet was used
Lizzie asked If I would telegraph to
Emma, nnd I did bo. Up to that time
nothing had been said of Mrs. Borden,
but Just before I went to the telegraph
office somebody asked where Mrs. Uor
den was, and Lizzie said she had re
l eelved a note to visit a sick friend, and
had gone out.
I"As 1 was going I met Officer Allen,
I know It was he, but I can't tell how
long It was after I went there that I
met him. On my return from the tele
graph office I met in the kitchen hall
way Mrs. Churchill, and she said they
had found Mrs. Borden upstairs In the
front room. She said I hud better go up
and see her,
"I went through the dining-room and
Utlng-room, nnd up the front stairs,
, stopping a moment at tho door of the
I guest chamber At that point I looked
over tho bed and saw the prottrate
form of Mrs. Borden; then I was stand
ing In the doorway. I went around at
"A the. foot of the bed, placed my hand on
flk-her head and found a wound In the
Ylhead; then I felt, her pulse and found
llhe was. dead.
II "I never said to anyone that, she bad
died of fright or in a faint, but I will
say this. My first thought was that
she had fainted. I went downstairs
I and told the people Mrs. Borden was
dead; that I thought she was killed by
the same Instrument with which Mr.
Borden was killed, nnd that I consid
ered it fortunate that Lizzie was out of
Here a photograph of the position of
Mrs. Borden was shown and witness
said Mrs. Borden was lying nearer the
bed when he saw her.. As this plcturre
went the rounds and was commented
upon Lizzie coverjd her eyes, but there
woro no tears.
Witness continued; "When I was in
the house In the morning I saw that
Lizzie had changed her dress, a pink
wrapper, but did not notice the first
dress worn as to color or material."
The witness said that after he went
downstairs first, after seeing Mrs. Bor
den's body, Lizzie was In the kitchen.
Mrs. Churchill, Miss Russell, witness's
wife and Bridget were fanning her and
working over her. She afterwards went
into the dining-room, and witness told
her she had better go to her room, where
he afterwards saw her.
MORPHINE FOR LIZZIE BORDEN.
Crocs - examination' by Mr. Adams
brought out the fact that the witness
had prescribed morphine for the pris
oner to allay nervous excitement; first
In ordinary doses, afterwards in double
doses, continued to the time of her ar
rest and afterwards when in the station-house
and before the examination
at the Inquest, and that morphine so
I prescribed had a tendency to affect the
memory and produce hallucination.
. The examination lasted a little over
i Bridget Sullivan was recalled at 10.10,
and under rigid cross-examination by ex
Oov.Roblnson denied that she saw Lizzie
in tears when she called her downstairs
Just after the murder, and denied she
I had ever slated so, as shown by her
testlt.iony in the preliminary hearing.
Bridget testified that she had on a
blue calico dress wltn a clover leaf
figure of white on a dark blue ground.
The waist was of the same material as
tho skirt. She kept It on until she got
a chance to change it in the after
noon for a blue gingham, plain, with a
white border, which was part of the
cloth. This was a lighter blue than the
dress se had on In the mornlg.
Bridget testified later: "While I was
living In the family there was a rob
Government objected to answer, but
it was allowed.
"It occurred In the day, about twelve
The Court asked why it was material,
occurring so far back, and ex-Qov. Rob
inson explained that tho robbery oe-ctrh-ed
in the middle of tho day, Just
when all tree family were there. (Ruled
Witness said. In answer to questions:
"There was a burglary In the barn also,
but it was in the night-time." The an
swer was excluded, exceptions being
noted in both cases.
MRS. CHURCHILL A WITNESS.
Mrs. Adelaide Churchill was called
and said she had been a resident of Fall
River forty-three years. "I have lived
where I do now all my life," said she.
"I was born there. It Is next north of
the Borden house. I have been on
terms of special intimacy with tho Bor
dens. "On the morning of Aug. 4 I saw Mr.
Borden first aout 9 o'clock. I was then
in tho kitchen; he was standing there;
it was on the am side of the steps. That
morning I went out nnd purchased
something for dinner.
"When I reached my house I saw
Bridget Sullivan going across thestret
from Dr. Don-en's to her house; she was
white and going rapidly. I went In the
side door of my house and Into the
kitchen, laying my undies on a long
tale, and looking out of the window I
saw Lizzie inside of the screen door
leaning against the east side of tho door
"I opened the window and asked Liz
zie: 'What 1b the matter?' She said:
'Oh, Mrs. Churchill, come over; some
one has killed father!'
"I went right out the front door over
to their house; when I stepped Inside the
Bcrcen door, she was sitting on the sec
ond step; I put my hand on her right
arm and onld: 'Oh, Lizzie, how did It
happen?' She said: 'I don't know. I
was In the barn to get a piece of Iron
nd when I came b:ck I found the tcre:n
"She said they must have some en
emies, and thought .they had all been
poisoned, as they were all sick In tho
night, I offered to go for a doctor, and
when I returned, after going to where
my brother worked, and getting him to
telephone, Dr. Bowen was there, and
wanted mo to go In and see the body of
"18 THERE ANOTHER?"
"After Mi's Russei'i came in Lizzie
said Bho wished somebody would try
to find Mrs. Borden, as she thought she
heard her come In. I volunteered to go
up with Bridget, and as we went up
stairs , and when my head was on a
level with tho floor, I saw the body;
then I turned about and went back.
"Miss Russell said: 'Is there another?'
nnd I said 'Yes; Bh6 is up there.' On
the day of the tragedy the agitation of
Lizzie was not manifested by tears. I
don't remember whether Lizzie said to
me that the reason she came in from
the barn was because she heard a dis
"The dress she had on while I was
there wns a light blue calico or cambric,
with a dark, navy blue diamond, printed.
The whole dress was alike.
Dress shown, but witness said it was
not the one worn in the morning.)
"I don't rmember how often I saw
her wearing this dress, and I don't
know how long she has owned it."
Cross-examination by Gov. Robinson:
"You live on the side of the house next
to the Borden house?"
"I live all over the house" (pertly).
"Oh, do youT Well, your living rooms
are on that side?"
"Yes; In my kitchen my kink is quite
near the window, right' opposite the side
screen-door of the Borden house, I saw
Bridget that morning when she waa
rinsing the parlor window; It waa a
casual glance; I wasn't watching her,
and whether she was washing the dining-room
windows I could not tell,"
"The street is comparatively n noisy
street when the windows are open;
noises in our own house might not ls
heard. Mr. Borden, when I saw him,
stood near the east part of the steps,
furthest away from Second Btreet. I
never saw him afterwards alive. The
first thing nfter that which nttractrd
my attention was Bridget going across
"I thought oome of them were sick,
because of Bridget's movements and
Lizzie's appearance. She was pale and
looked distressed and frightened; It
was a startling appearance on her
MISS RUSSELL AND THE BURNT
Mrs. Churchill's examination was fin
ished at 11.20. A fivo-minute recess fol
lowed, during which the prisoner talked
with Charles J .Holmes, of Fall River.
Alice Russell was called at H.tO.
Mis Russell deserted Lizzie's burning
of the dress the Sunday after the mur
der. First saw Lizzie In the kitchen
with the dress, nnd Lizzie said: "I am
going to burn up this old thing covered
Witness went out and came In again
and saw Lizzie standing near the cup
board door and tearing or ripping small
portion of dress. A skirt was lying
on the shelf.
Witness said: "I would not let anybody
see you do that," to which Lizzie said
nothing, but moved back one step
toward tho cupboard door.
Afterwards witness said: "I am afraid
the worst thing you could have done
was to burn that dress."
Lizzie replied: "Oh, why did you let
mo do It? Why did not you tell me?"
The dress was a cheap, light-blue cot
ton bedford cord, with small dark fig
ure, with witness had once noticed Liz
zie wearing in the Spring, when new.
Ex-Gov. Robinson's cross-examination
failed to shake Miss Russell's direct
On re-dtrect she testified, against ob
jection, by defense, that Bedford Is a
cheap dress material, and that the cup
board In which witness saw a part of
the dress at the time of the burning was
used only for kitchen utensils.
At 12.50' John Cunningham testified
about the murder. Court then took a
recess from 1 to 2.15.

When the Custom-House Investigating
Commission resumed Its work at the Barge
Officii tbls morning all tlio members of tho
Hoard nero i recent with the exception of
Appraiser Cooper bad come down to oblige
the cnmmlialoiicrj, he said, nnd wan ready to
Elf e them any further Information about tho
administration ot his department.
Without any preliminaries the Appraiser
took tho witness stana und teutned that he
had held hit present otllce since April, lbKl),
and was thoroughly familiar with all thj
branches nf the department.
Ibo Appraiser's Mores were divided Into
ten sections, according to the character of
tho merchandise dealt with. There was also
a laboratory connected with the mores.
Each one ot these divisions had nt Its head
sn assistant appulrernnd a corps ot assist
ants, averaging about tblrty men to each
division. In all, Mr. cooper said, there were
about 3fi0 men employed tn the Appraiser's

officers having charge of each class of goods.
After tbo examiner has completed tbts
work bis valuations, whether tbeydinor or

It was also customary when there wns
any doubt about the correctness of the
Invoice valuations to call in as experts

"They have no authority to interfere

"Oh, no," replied the Appraiser.
"They are only consulted as bo valua

had access to the various departments
to look after the Interests of tho do
Attention was colled to the report that
a very lax method of certlfylna; to In
voices wns prevalent, nnd the Appraiser
was forced to admit that examiners
often took their Invoices to an assistant
appraiser of some other division to
This was only done, so far as he knew,
when the assistant was sick or ab
sent; hut he acknowledged that it mlfrht
be done very easily for the purpose of
defraudlnc the Government without its
ever comimr to the knowlcdgu of tho
"More than M per cent, of tho Invoices
received and passed never come under
my personal notice, and many coses of
this kind could have occurred and I
would never know anything about it."
In the office of each head of division,
he said, there wns a rubber stamp "far
ing the Appraiser's name, which waa
ofllxed to each Invoice passed by the
Assistant Appraiser, whose name wns
also Rlgned before the Invoice went back
to the Collector.
"I don't know whether It Is an ex
aminer or the Assistant Appraiser who
actually uses the stamp. It la all done,
however, before the Invoice leaves tho
division. I couldn't spend my time slgn
lnn 1,500 or more Invoices a day."
The Appraiser said he wns well ac
quainted with the personnel of the staff
of the Appraiser's Stores and consid
ered them excellent officers.
Mr. Cooper asserted that when be wanted
to make new appointments at tbe Appraisers'
stores ne sent to tbe civil Eervlcn Hoard and
-nt an eligible list of their names. Ho made
kls selections from these.
Usually there was a great pressurn from
tbe friends of somo of these candidates to
secure their appointments. Mr. cooper said
he frequently called tn tbe candidates and
examined them himself before making an ap
pointment. commissioner Dunn thought that such a
proceeding wns unnecessary when tho Civil,
service Hoard bad already parsed its judg

was one of his own Ideas, ana bo was going to
run his omco as he liked.
During the xamlnatlon of the Appraiser
Stenographer Stephen W. llassett cams in.
He had lil bundle nf paper with him, and
expects to be recslied as a witness.

" Now, I don't think that s a nice question
at all." said Mr. crojier reprnjchtully. " I
am willing to answer nil reasonatle que.
