In this war does the reporter seek to shield

District Hnw Attorney long had he been dead 1 asked the

rosmoN OF THE BLOOD RPOTB
Yo thoro were eightysix blood spots be
hind bin head on the wall paper above the
Bofa The highest spot wan 1 feet T Inches
from the floor The spots began at throo or
four inches from tho head and described a
semi circle on Oh the wall A Uonm wore very
WUUU IUU u UU u al
On the wall paper abovo time loungo worn
two spots close together Ono was six feet
ono and threequarters Inches fiom tho floor
I was above the head and a little to the west of
the sofa The other spot was six feet one and
onohnif Inches from the floor Above the
head both spots wore onehalf inch Ions and
onequarter inch wide 1urthor along the
wall on a picture thorn were forty spots The
highest spot was fiftyeight incline from
the floor On top ot the moulding which runs
around the room there woro live spots They
wore all directly behind the lounge which has
a strong back
On the carpet were two pools of blood On
the parlor door west of the lounge and five
feotjrom the head woro seven spots Inl
thoJarlor was a large spot between the upper
panels of this door There were three Slot
on the ceiling There was ono spot on tho last
jamb of the door leading from theslttlng room
Into the dining room This spot was on the
dining room side of the door fourteen inches
from the floor I was moro of a spatter
than a spot There wai one spot on
I
the door leading from tho dining
room to tho kitchen and another on the door
casing The slot on the dining room door
could nave resulted from tho swinging of tho
Instrument through tho air From thn nature
of the wounds they were made br a sharp In
strument an axe or hatchet The wounds are
clean showing a sharp cutting surface
I think the Instrument had handle be
cause the force applied In breaking tho skull
fIUAO applod skul
Would require a handle for leverage
Speaking of the skull Dr Dolun said it wee
onotwullui blow of an Inch thick at tho Place of the
blowWhat relative decree of force was required
to crush tho skull at that place with a
hatchet asked the District Attorney Lawyer
Jennings objected on the ground that Dr
Dolan was not an export Mr Knowlton said
that he had qualified as such without objec
lon Juilgn lilalsdcll ruled that the witness
should answer tho question
A person with a qUOton live pound hatchet
A perol
nnd not necessarily a robust person could
easily have caused the wounds said Dr Do
lan Lawyer Adams objected to tho answer as
not proper and not replying to tlm question
Dr Dolan repeated his answer saying An
ordinarily robust person with moderate
a forco flvopound could easily hatchet have broken the skull with
TUB MuiiDin or MHS BonnKX
After stating that Mr Borden was 70 years
old and of good physique Dr Dolnn took up
Mrs Borden murder Ho Roll Tho body
of Mrs liorclen was lying on Its face on tlm
floor four or live feet from thin wall with tim
head turnod toward tim east welt I eould not

How manr autopsies did you hold 7 asked
Mr Adams
One on Aug 11
How about the ona on Aug i
It was a partial ono
Lawyer Jennings asked the Court for the re
ports of the autopsy and despite the Dis
trict Attorneys contention that he had no
right to It Judge Blalsdell handed It over
There were two separate reports one forth
autopsy of Aug 4 and one for the autopsy of
AUIt U
The report of the autopsy of Aug 4 was
shown to the witness who identified it and re
marked that it was a full report of a partial
autopsy Ho then described tho second au i
topsy It was hold at Oak Orove Cematery I
when Drs Uowsu and Draper assisted him
The temperature of the dead people was

average temperature of a person Is IH de
crees Ho aid that when he examined Mr
Ilordens body Its tnmperatura was 14 Mr
Adams then asked him how fast tho tempera

Dr Dolan said it foil JO degrees the nrst hour
Then paid Lawyer Adams If Mr lion
dons tempornturo hart fallen from 18 ° to 114
when you aw him within the first hour after
his dnnth and if a body cools 20 ° the first
hour Mr liordcn must have been dead ono
tutu of an hour or twelve minutes and not

Dr Dolnn escaped by saying that Mr Adams
misunderstood his previous answers on which
his calculation worn based Lawyer Adams
then brought out n small manikin or doll Ho
had tlm witness arrange it in Mrs Ilordcn lay
and had him mark on It the wounds found on
Mrs Portion
In connection with this Dr Dolan testified

attention of time public Is drawn to the
socalled lysol I whlifi Is compounded of
caustic notash oblo acid and oresolon A so
lution of ono per cent of lysol Is bald l to bo
sufficient to annihilate the common bacillus
at the shortest notion If so it will be a more
effectIve remedy than cnrbol It Is not at all
of n corrosive nature cm the cnrtrarv If
mixed with proper quantity of water It ren
tIers tho skin very smooth qualities which
render It especially useful for washing inn
hands linen and Moms und for similar pur
poses Moreover besides possessing cleansing
power In an eminent decree It Is much lens
poisonous than cirliol The Sanitary Hoard
luiro has therefore ordered lyiol to bo elassed
among the olllclally locommenderl remedies

thiin I fIt ii riiancollor takes up the law of
ISSTi which prohibits the leasing domostlo

It follows ho says that Ito lease to the PortJ

In eiiultynt huh stilt Hn holds further that

The Chancellor says There are peculiar

great anthracite coal carriers of the country

in hit State which formerly had tho ad van
tact uf rompntltlon between tittesealhlet t roads
but now eiil auhieut to the monopoly which timis
leisu affords It 1ft true thou cooperation of ties

either the Jhilndelpiiia and Heading or th

At the same line it Is admitted tlmt the lIonel

us tulle the dMiiiiU of thIs uuiay be literally true
Hueh allocutions without explanation and la

emblem which disentitles thorn to that fore
which Is usually accorded to tin denials Ofro

Vo Imvo great coal dealerx complnlnlnc
that they are ulllcluntly Duid for tlio prod

thoy control more than onehalf the coat fields
upon which this htato depends for fuel and
looking to time cooperation nf tho remaining
anthracite coal producers to effect n change la l
thin price of their output so that they mar
hnve more satisfactory return from their in
vestment To cay that these conditions dt >
not lend tn n disastrous monopoly In coal
would be an Insult tn intelligence
It Is possible that such a monopoly mar l5
usod as tho defendants suggest to introduce
economies and cheapen coal but it does vio
lence to our knowledge of human nature to
expect such n result
In conclusion the Chancellor says Tho
commodity in which these companies deal Is a
nocoscary of lIfe In this Htnto It Is the prin
cipal fuel of Its homes and factories Th
slightest increase In its prieo J Is felt bya popu
