,
Aikkn. S .. I'ob. r.. A Jewelled knife
owned by Frederick O. Heach was shown
at Ids I rial heie to-day. Dr. Hastings
YVAnian, Jr. an Alderman here, testified!
Ib.it he had found what he thought to
be blood stains on the knife and had se-
cured a written report contlrmlni; this'
lew from Itoy.len Nlms, a chemist of!
Columbia This repent was put Into the!
evidence, but Its elfect was almost com
pletely destroyed on cross-examination
by Wyman's ndmNslon ns to the primi
tive methods of research he had em
ployed. Dr C D. r.irtrldRe. to whom Wynian
hn.l admitted he first went for an ex
pert analyslt, raised expectancy to the
utmost when he testified that the knlfo
when brought to him had two sound
blades and hnd not been broken, as the
accepted theoty of the prosecution held.
He said he had been asked to c.mllrm
Wyman's diagnosis of blood nnd had re
plied that there was nothing on the
nurroscoplc slide prepared by 'VVyman
With .scrapings from the knife to Indi
cate corpuscles.
The elation of the defence was short
lived. Dr. Partridge, Who Is professor
of pathology at the I'ntverslty of
Georgia and has been connected with
the medical schools of Cornell nnd Johns
Hopkins, went Into a stute of nervous
collapso under tho rough shod uttack
of Prosecutor fJunter's cross-examination
and eontnidicted every material
point In his previous testimony.
He succeeded In giving the impression
of a man endeavoring to llnd tho truth
and unable to find It either in direct
statement or contradiction. And the
native lorn Jury nppc.ved to enjoy the
plight of the medical professor, who
halls from Vermont, as much ns the
mirth convulsed spectators,
"Didn't you refuse to put In writing
your statement made to Wyman?" Mr.
Hunter asked roughly.
"Ves." Dr. Partridge replied meejtly.
"Were you afraid?"
"No." I
"Voil knew If you put It down In
writing the State would have It, didn't
you""
"Yes "
"And you didn't do that, did you?"
"1 was absolutely unbiassed at thn!
time." the witness replied naively, see
ing his mistake only when Mr. !unter,
looking. slgnltlcantlv at the Jury, laughed
and said: "And so you have become
biassed since."
Dr. Partridge's .lielplessne.su began
then; he could be sure of nothing. The
attorneys for the defence were unable
to help him nnd tho bailiff was busy
stilling the loud outbreaks of laughter.
He said he wns not sure about the
I knife having no broken blade and pre
ferred to withdraw his statement to that
i ne oniy groiinu piiineu wnicn ne lert
In the possession of the defence was his
assertion that when Wymnn and
Haughn asked him for nn opinion, the
foimer had said that they weie anxious
to hao an early report, us they wished
to stop a man who was going to leae
for New YoiiJi that day at 3.
Di. T. H. Oertell, who formerly held
a position In tho German West Side Dis
pensary In New York, ami was the
predecessor of Dr.' Partridge as profes.
j He did not think the methods described
i by Dr. Wyman lu his own microscopic
i iiS'aminatlons aibquatis And ill the
, course of a long disquisition upon the
j iiustltucnts of human blood pointed
t out that many vegetable cells, come of
which might be found In mold or un
I distilled water such us used by Wyman
in preparing his microscopic slides,
might be mistaken by the Inexpert for
I'l"'-! co,psci..s
Hut Dr. Oertell got Into trouble when
he fell Into Mr. fJunter's hands. He
had described an experiment he con
ducted upon a body to prove that a
knife similar to Mr H.nch's. could not
have been broken In making a wound
like that Mrs. Heach received. And this
was made even more likely, he s.ild, be
cause It would have been mule dlillcult
on a living .subject whose thyroid hone
unattached to the skeleton as It Is,
would there be mole movable.
"Now, doctor," went on Mr.
"didn't you teach Dr. Wyman
Gunler,
In your
medical M'hool at Augusta?"
"Yes; I endeavored to do so"
"Well, you don't mean to say that
you turn out upon an unsuspecting
community a man who docs not know
blood when ho sees It, do you?"
While Dr. Oertell was on the stand
he was called upon to give evidence as
to Hid phase of the moon on thn night
of the assault on Mrs, Heach, by Mr.
Fuller, who was trying to establish the
fact that the entrance to the Heach
homo was In shadow at 9:30.
As he had not been In Aiken at thai
time, he wns called upon lo read from an
almiilinc put In evidence. Mr. Ounter
objected to the bacteriologist being
utilized for this purpose, and submitted
that he did not know that the gentle
man was nn expert on Ihe moon. Judge
Spain granted that he thought that
was going most too far, nnd the defence
let the doctor go.
From Dr. H. T. Hall. Ihe Heach family
physician, was drawn a full account of
the treatment which he hud given Mrs.
I leach's wound when ho arrived on the
c-nynd rhortly nflrr the Drs. Wyman.

fuse Was Hendy to Be Presented
to Grand Jury Next
Monday.
District Attorney Whitman went t
the home of Police Captain Thomas W.
Walsh nt 1S50 Madison avenue a lit
tle after 10 o'clock lust nlftht. Ha
was accompnnled by Assistant District
Attorney Ciroehl. Mr. Whitman re
mained with the captain for an hour.
When he nnd his assistant left th
house and returned tn ihelr taxlcah Mr.
Whitman told a number of newspPr
men waiting for him that Capt. Walsh
had corrolsirated Fox's story "In every
detail."
Capt. Walsh surrendered himself en
tirely Into the hands of District At
torney Whitman, admitted that every
thing Fox had said Implicating him
self was true, himself brcught in In
spector Dennis Sweeney ns one who
shared the graft equally with himself,
and save Important Information regard
ing a civilian at Police Headquarters.
Capt. Wulsh said that when Fox wa
accused In- and Inspector Sweeney
ruist-.l the money to keep Sipp out of
town nnd thus prevent his testifying
l.ff.iro the flrnnd Jury. Then he and
Inspeitor Sweeney, he said, contributed
in equal share the $r.,000 for the cash
ball of Fox when the policeman had
protested against his continued stay In
the Tombs and there was danger of
tin- policeman goin" over to the Dis
trict Attorney.
He said Hint after he and Inspector
Svve.ney hnd raK.d the money It was
tinned over to it l.ivvjer lo be given to
another lawver who was to deliver It
to Sipp. lu all these details Capt.
W.ilh.r- story agree with that told
bv Fov Kihvar.l .1 Newell, formerly
counsel for Sipp. already is under In
.bclir.eiit for a misdemeanor In connec
tion with u rsiudlir, Sipp to remain
outside Hie Jurisdiction, and It has been
(Miecl.'.l that tl Mraordlnnry (Jrand
Jury will yo further Into thM matter
un M.ind.i:.'
The DiMiict Attorney's conversation
with Capt. Wal.-h coveted only tho
major points of the situation. Assistant
Dlsiilct Attorney linwhl will go to Capt.
Walsh's home again to-day and will
take a detailed Mutemcnt fiom Hie cap
tain. This will be taken down by a
steiiogiaplier nnd Capt. Walsh hn
ploitilsed to make it as complete as
possible Later, also, there will be
further conferences between the cap
tain and Hi.! Dlsttlet Attorney.
Walsh told his stor first to Mr. Whit
man, with no otheis present. Then
Mr Whitman called In .Mr. (Iroehl, who
wus waiting In another room, nnd 11
man fil.n.l of ('apt Walsh's and Mrs.
Walsh. The captain thereupon went
over the whole story again, tiefote them
nil.
The evidence ngnlnst Capt. Walsh,
Including his own confession, will be
presented to tho extraordinary drand
Jury on Monday. It Is presumed that
an Indictment mas! follow, now that the
captain hus admitted all the charges
mude against him by his former col
lector, After he bus been Indicted the
captain himself will go before the Grand
Jury to testify ngalnst those "higher
up" whom he mentioned to Mr. Whlt
niHn last night. It was believed last
night that the District Attorney would
not be leady to bring Walsh before tho
(Ir.iml Jury before 11 week from Mon
day. Capt. Walsh talked with the District
Attorney with apparent freedom and
seemed to be desirous nf concealing
nothing. He expressed himself ns being
anxious to go before the Grand Jury
and clear up his whole connection with
the affair. He told Mr. Whitman thnt
he hud known him when he was n
miglstrnte, that he trusted him anil
would not consult any lawyer In the
present Instance, but would place him
self unreservedly In the District Attor
ney's hands,
Capt, Walsh's condition, while he Is
very nervous, Is not believed to be such
as will prevent him from testifying be
fore the Grand Jury when the time
comes.
Hy surrendering himself to Mr. Whit
man Capt. Walsh has probably saved
himself the consequences of the acts of
which he now admits himself to bo
guilty. The District Attorney has said
s.-vcral times In the past few days
that he would be willing to recommend
that Walsh receive clemency, or even
that he be nllowed lo go free, If h
would give up thosn above him.
Representatives of Capt. Walsh wero
In consultation with the District At
torney yesterday with the object of
learning Just what the position of thn
captain will be If ho decides to discloan
whatever ho may know concerning po
lice graft. Mr. Whitman nave these
