the ability of the defense to prove bv-
1 yond a doubt that the hand which shot
death through a window In Doctor Car
man's office was a man's.
Levy began his outline of tho defense
case shortly beforo noon. The piosecu
tlon had rested with rebuttal examina
tion of Frank Farrell. a wanderer. Judge
Kelby denied a motion to dismiss tho
case mailo l the defense on tho ground
of insufficient evidence.
The defense's first witness was a Negro
stenographer, who had taken down the
testimony of Cella Coloman. Mrs. Car
mun""i Negro maid, nt n prlvnto hearing
on July 13 The Colomnn girl's version
of events on the night of the murder,
as given then, differed materially from
tho story she told on the stand yester
day. Alis. Carman s entrance In couit this
morning wns dramatic. The members of
her farnllv had preceded her and took i
wreathfd in a forced smile. Phe showed
the effect of having spent possibly n.
wakeful night. Before she sat down
fcho kissed each member of her family,
her father last.
While waiting for the Judge to enter
she began discussing her case with her
attorney. She continued the animated
discussion while the names of the Jury
men were called. The accused woman
was evidently pleading to be allowed to
take the stand In her own defense.

When Mr. Graham rose to question
Farrell one who had listened to yester
day's xamlnatlon might have supposed
that only a few minutes' recess had been
"How did you describe the woman you
saw outside the Carman house the first

"Didn't you say she had on a fedora

"Well. I might havo ald she had on
somothins that looked like a man's hat."
Graham thon tried to pin Farrell down
to the fact that he had admitted that
much to Sheriff Pettlt in July, but tho
witness declared he lOiildn't ri member.
The trend of Mr Graham's examina
tion seemed to be to establish that the
witness was not looking for work when
he went from New York to Freeport on
