THE JIUUETS CHARGE
A' Terr Fair and Exhaustive Pre
sentation at the Case.
Immediately upon the conclusion of
Prank M. Nye's address to the jury In
behalf of Hamilton yesterday - afternoon,
Judge Brooks delivered his charge .to the
Jury. The charge, which took forty-five
minutes in delivering, was a most elab
- orate * and comprehensive one, covering
- every phase of the law and the evidence.
The charge was, in part, as follows:
After referring to the circumstances of
the indictment, the charge proceeds: -
Under the statutes of this state there are
three degrees of murder and two degrees of
manslaughter. And it is the law that under
an Indictment charging murder in* the first
degree, the defendant may, when warranted
by the facts proven, be convicted of any one
of the three degrees of murder or of either
of the two degrees of manslaughter. , You are
not required, should they find the defendant
guilty, to convict him of the crime of mur
der in the first degree. You may, under the
evidence and under this indictment, find him
guilty of one of the lesser degrees of felonious
homicide— which 1 shall hereafter .call
your attention. VV J '. ''.»'.')
Duties of Juror* Explained.
The duties of Jurors were then dwelt
upon, the court explaining that while it
is the duty of the court to declare the
law, and its privilege also to present the
facts, "the jury are the Judges, and the
sole and exclusive judges, of all questions
of fact in the case."
The charge then takes an elaborate view
of the question of doubt, in which the at
tention of the jurors is directed to the
presumption of innocence which must al
ways apply. Coming down to the im
portant question of what constitutes a
"reasonable doubt." the charge says:
What Is Reasonable Doubt.
A reasonable doubt is not a mere possible
doubt; for anything relating to human af
fairs and depending on moral evidence is
open to some possible or imaginary doubt.
Absolute certainty 1s not required, but a
reasonable certainty^ such a certainty as sat
isfies your reason and judgment so that you.
feel bound to act conscientiously upon it.
It is an application of this doctrine of rea
sonable doubt to which I have called your
attention, and is the law, that when it ap
pears that «- defendant has committed a pub
lic offense and there is reasonable ground of
doubt as to which of two or more degrees of
the crime he is guilty, he can be convicted
of the lowest of these degrees only. Another
application of this rule respecting the de
gree of proof essential to warrant a convic
tion is this: If. after a consideration of the
entire testimony in the case, the Jury are
unable to determine whether the defendant
-or another person is the guilty party, then
the jury should consider the case precisely
the same as though it were proven that somo
person other than the defendant committed
the alleged offense. It follows that if, after
a fair and full consideration of all the evi
dence, you entertain a reasonable doubt
whether the defendant or some other person
killed the deceased, then you must acquit
In every prosecution of this nature, the
charge resolves itself into two, principal ques
tions: First, whether the party alleged to
have been murdered came to his death by an
act of violence Inflicted by any person; sec-
A Record After Using Different Foods.
J. Henry Myers of Otsego, Mich., a
traveling representative of a certain med
ical missionary association, made some
strength tests with different foods, with
the following result. He says: "In 1897
1 became officially connected with an in
stitution manufacturing a large line of
'•My desire was to add strength. I was
in good health, and faithfully lived, al
most entirely, for nearly two years, on
their foods, and believed in them thor
oughly. In January, '98, my strength
test showed 5,700 pounds; in January,
'99, by the same machine, my strength
test wa« only 4,560 pounds, a heavy fall
ing off, notwithstanding I had not been
■ick, but had faithfully and religiously
used the foods I so fully believed in and
had beea hired to lecture for and ad
"For a month after that test, I was
uncertain what to do. I felt weak, and
what I wanted was strength, so in Feb
.ruary of that year I quit ail other health
foods and began using Grape-Nuts alone.
My weight now has increased from 130
to 143 pounds: my strength has increased
from 4,560 pounds to 5.&40, and I am now
1,609 pounds stronger, by actual test, than
the average man. My eyesight is clearer,
my mind more active and stronger, and I
can endure more labor, physical and men
tal, than ever before.
"I do not know any person interested
in the Po«tum Cereal Co., Ltd., and this
letter is not written with any motive,
except to bring honest facts to the at
tention of persons desiring to live well
and live rationally. I have the charts
filled out by the physicians at the Insti
tution making the health foods.that failed
in my case, and these facts cannot be
disputed by any one. I will make oath
that they are absolutely correct."
Mr. Myers' letter gives the name in
full of the concern making the so-called
health foods, which failed in his case,
but this name is not given to the public.
It is not the purpose of the manufactur
ers of Grape-Nuts to build their business
by depreciating the efforts of any com
petitor. This experience Is printed as sen
illustration of the indisputable fact that
Grape-Nuts food is a true, hoaest, and
remarkable rebuilder of the human body.
ond. whether the act causing the death was
committed by tbe accused. Each of these
quotiUo&s must b« established independently
of the other.
Sketches of the Testimony,
Rapidly and in a most comprehensive
manner, the court proceeds to sketch the
testimony of the trial, showing the feel
ing existing between the two men, the
events leading up to the murder. The
interference of George, the fight between
Evans and Force, the injuries received
by George and the stream of blood, are
all hurriedly but clearly stated.
No witness has testified that he saw a
knlf« in the hands of the defendant, but
after the tragedy a bloody knife was picked
up from the floor at the sid« of the dead
body. It is claimed by the state that the de
fendant had an opportunity to place It there
before it was picked up. This knife is in
evidence in this case, and It is claimed on
behalf of the prosecution that It is the in
strument with which the defendant inflicted
the fatal wound.
No witness has testified that be ever saw
this kuife prior to the homicide, either in the
hands of th« defendant or in the hands of
any other person. Witnesses have under
taken to testify that they saw a knife In
Day's possession at a previous time, but they
do not identify this knife as being the one
v. hich they saw.
The contention of the state, that George
was wounded while trying to separate
the combatants, is then taken up, and the
state's argument that presumably Day
did not have the knife in his hand, is
submitted. Attention is also called to the
alleged confessions or admissions of
Rooney and Hill, and their credibility,
and the weight that should be attached
The claims of the defense are then
offered with equal fullness and fairness.
The testimony of Hamilton, who denies
that he committed the crime, the tes
timony of Dr. Murray, of Francis and
others is briefly indicated.
Evans' presence at the time of the
tragedy, and the statements of the de
fense rgardlng him are indicated.
The charge also calls attention to the
mass of expert testimony offered by both
sides regarding the fatal blow, the
manner in which it was delivered, and its
After mentioning that many important
details of the testimony might have been
over-looked in his hasty summary, the
court directs the Jurors to their duties
after deliberating upon the law and the
The first Question in this branch of the
case, -which you will consider when you re
tire, will be this: Is the evidence sufficient
to satisfy you beyond a reasonable doubt that
the defendant killed the deceased? If it U
not, then you need not consider the case any
further, but will return a verdict of not
guilty. If you are satisfied beyond a reason
able doubt that the defendant and no other
person did inflict the fatal wound found upon
the body of the deceased, then there will be
other questions for the jury to determine, as,
in that event, it will be for the jury to say
what verdict among several should be ren
dered la this case.
As to Hamilton's Bruises.
As I have said, it is claimed by the defend
ant that before Day was lulled he was him
aelf struck a severe blow in the head and
face. He does not testify that this blow was
struck by Day, nor does he testify that he
used a knife or killed Day because of any
apprehension of injury arising from such
blows. He admits that he.was, when he was
struck, much intoxicated, as he expresses it,
very drunk; so much so that he is unable to
remember with exactness jiwt what occurred
at the billiard-room before he received the
blow. But he testifies that thereafter and
until after the homicide everything was to
him a blank and that he has no recollection
respecting anything that occurred during
•that time. He does not in express terms cay
that the blow produced unconsciousness or
loss of mind during this period, and no one
has undertaken to say that euch a blow
would produce mental incapacity while leav
ing the physical powers unimpaired.
But from this it is suggested in the defend
ant's behalf that even though the defendant
killed the deceased his mind at the time was
so damaged as a result of thia blow that he
did not know what he was doing. The jury
will readily perceive that a defense of this
character should be received with caution
and scrutinized with care. It is a defense
that might readily and easily be resorted to
In many homicide cases, and when it rests
wholly upon the unsupported statement of
the accused, the jury should carefully con
sider whether from such a cause mental in
capacity would be likely to ensue so great as
to deprive the defendant of the power to real
lie what he was doing and at the same time
leave him in the possession of his physical
powers to the extent that he could flght and
kill another in the manner In which it was
claimed that the deceased was killed. And
again, the jury should consider whether or
not the defendant if for a time, as he claims,
without any realizing sense of what he was
doing, was not in that condition as a result of
intoxication coupled with anger or passion
induced by a combat in which he voluntarily
engaged. If so, as will be more fully ehown
to you, his condition would not exempt him
from responsibility for this homicide in cas*
he killed the deceased.
The Claim of Premeditation.
It is claimed by the state that the de
fendant armed or provided himself with this
knife which has been introduced in evidence
in this case in advance of the fatal encounter
with the purpose of using it-should he be
come engaged in combat with Day. It baeea
this claim upon the character of the knife,
and also upon the evidence already mentioned
tending to show that Hamilton stabbed Day
with the knife and subsequently left it at
the side of the dead party. The defendant,
as already stated.denies that he had the knife
at all, and if in fact he did not he, of course,
cannot be convicted in this case, because it is
only upon the theory that he had the knife
and inflicted with it this fatal wound that
the state asks or can ask for a conviction.
But if in fact the defendant did arm him
self or provide himself in advance with this
knife with the intent or purpose of using
it upon Day's person, and did so before the
defendant was struck, then the fact, if it be
a fact, that he received a blow which tem
porarily deprived him of the power of con
scious action would not constitute a defense
to this action. 'As I say, if the defendant
never had this knife in his hand then he did
not kill Day and your verdict must be not
guilty. If on the contrary he armed himself
with the knife for the purpose claimed by
the state before he received the blow which
as he claims, rendered him mentally uncon
scious, then he is responsible for what he
did with the knife, even though at the time
he used it he did not know what be was
doing, or did not know that his act was
The charge expressly adds that a men
cannot "arm himself with a knife with
the intention of feloniously using It upon
another, and then after using It escape
responsibility by the claim that when it
was used he was for some reason an
conscfous of the fact."
A» to the Verdict.
The verdict that the Jury may find is
then pointed out with great clearness,
whether murder in the first degree or
second degree, manslaughter or acquittal.
The court expressly says that upon no
theory of the case could a verdict of mur
der in the third degree be received in the
case. Manslaughter, and what constitutes
it, is explained, the fact being prominent
ly stated that it is conceded by all that
Hamilton was intoxicated at the time of
the killing of Day, and that "defendant
claims he was intoxicated to that extent
that he was incapable of forming a design
If he did not have such intent then he was
not guilty of the crime of murder. But,
without such intent, he might be guilty of
manslaughter in the first degree, which, as
I have said, may be committed by one who
has no design to effect the death of the per
son killed. And in determining whether or
not the accused had an intent to kill Leon
ard Day and whether or not there existed
in his mind a premeditated design to cause
the death of the deceased, the jury may take
into consideration the fact that the accused
was intoxicated at the time.
Intoxication as a. Defense.
In this connection the court charges you
that drunkenness is a matter of defense; and
the burden rests upon fhe defendant to es
tablish- its existence by a fair preponderance
of all the evidence in the case, upoa every
issue of fact in this case, except only the de
fendant's mental condition so far as it was
induced by Intoxication or the blow which he
received, the burden reets uoon the. state to
establish its truth to the satisfaction of this
jury beyond a reasonable doubt But upon
this issue of drunkenness or intoxication the
burden shift* and the burden of proof rests
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
upon the defendant to establish the ft tent
of his Intoxication, by a fatr preponderance
of the testimony. If the defendant has Id
fact in this case established by a preponder
ance of the evidence his claim that he was
drunk when the killing occurred, and if for
that reason he was incapable of or did not
'orm or entertain an actual design to kill,
then the- jury will not flod the defendant
guilty of murder, but will. In that event, if
they return a verdict of guilty, find the de
fendant guilty of manslaughter in the first
After stating that one may commit the
crime of manslaughter In the first degree
without any design or Intent to kill, the
charge takes up the threats made by Day
Threats Made by Day.
Of course the jury will understand that if
It were proven conclusively that the de
ceased made threats, or that he was intoxi
cated at \he time be was killed, or that his
habits and conduct theretofore bad not been
commendable. 6uch facts would conatitute no
defense to this charge. In the eyes of the
law it is as great a crime to murder a bad
man as a sober man; and threats of one
against the other, even If known to the lat
ter, are immaterial, provided it be proven
that the latter killed the- former without
justification or excuse, and provided the cir
cumstances of the killing are established with
sufficient clearness and certainty. It is be
cause in this case the evidence ia not clear
and certain with respect to the exact circum
stances surrounding this homicide that evi
dence of these facts, which would otherwise
be immaterial, have been received.
• Admission of Confession.
If the jury believe from th* evidence that
the defendant made these confessions, as
claimed by the state, then you consider such
confessions as you would any other testi
mony, give them such force and weight as
in your opinion they are entitled to receive
in view of all the circumstances of the case
as disclosed by the testimony which you have
The credit and weight to be given to confes
sions depends very much upon what the facts
are. If the crime itself, as charged, is
proved by other testimony, and it is also
proved that the defendant was so situated
that he had an opportunity to commit the
crime, and his confessions are consistent with
such proof and corroborative of it, and the
witness who swears to the confessions is ap
parently honest and truthful, then confes
sions so made may be entitled to great weight
with the jury.
In this case there is evidence tending to
show that the defendant did have an oppor
tunity to commit this crime.
The charge then proceeds with an ex
amination of the statements of the doctors
who disagreed, "but this testimony is not
to be ignored," says the court. "It is to
be given such weight, and such weight
only, as it is entitled to receive."
Hamilton's own testimony, too, the
court holds, must be considered in the
sairaj way, despite the fact that he is an
interested party. This is followed by a
learned exposition touching the value of
The weight of a witness' testimony depends
upon two factors: First, his disposition to
tell the truth; second, his ability to do so.
There is evidence tending to show that cer
tain witnesses who have given their testi
mony concerning the transactions of the
night in question were at the time more or
less intoxicated. This fact is entitled to its
due weight in any bearing it may have upon
the ability of the witness to understand and
remember what occurred at the time.
Now, gentlemen of the jury, it is unneces
sary for me to say that you havo a grave
duty to perform in this case. It is unneces
sary for me to say that you must perform
that duty fearlessly. If you find beyond a
reasonable doubt that this defendant is guilty
of any crime of which under the evidence
and these instructions he should be convicted
in this case, then return a verdict to that
effect, regardless of any consequences that
may ensue to him. If, on the contrary, you
entertain a reasonable doubt as it has been
defined to you, whether or not this defendant
is guilty of any such offense, then, regard
less of all else, return a verdict of not
This case, of course. Is to be determined
upon the evidence and the law as you have
heard it here in court, and not upon the elo
quence of counsel or upon any statements
made by them not warranted by the testir
mony which has bene offered. We are not, in
this case, trying the general character of the
deceased. The question, and the sole ques
money which has been offered. We are not, in
ty of the crime charged in this indictment,
or of any lesser offense of which he can be
convicted thereunder. The cause has been
tried upon each side with unusual fairness
and with unusual ability. You have had the
benefit of the most thorough and exhaustive
arguments concerning the facts. I have en
deavored to state to you tfce law of the case
so plainly that you may easily and clearly
apply it to the facts as you find them to be.
Base your decision upon the testimony a«
you have heard it here in court; be governed
by the rules of law as they have been stated
to you, and return such a verdict as your
consciences approve; and you will then have
done your full duty in this case.

, Are Not in Her Claaa.
Nate York Sun Special Strvic*
New York, Feb. 19.—The statement
made by Mrs. Constance Drexel Biddle,
the society woman, who has begun her
career as a vaudeville actress at a Phila
delphia theater, that there are no ladies
or gentlemen on the stage, has aroused a
storm of protest. Mrs. Biddle said:
I did not Intend to imply there were no
exceptions, but the very large majority of
those you come in contact with are not ao by
birth or breding.
This class has never had the advantage of
association with the best people; the major
ity, has sprung from a stratum in life where
the customs, manners and deportment of
people of position are unknown. It is their
misfortune, perhaps may not be their fault.
Mrs. Biddle will marry Fernando Yznaga
as soon as her husband secures a divorce
he is now seeking.
