Grievously Hurt, He Dragged
Himself to Phone and Sum

He Suffered Tortures to Do It, but
Must Have Died Other-
wise.
Now York Sun. Special Service.
New York, Feb. 5.Aloftte in the
great building of the Edison storage
works in Edgewater, N. J., with his
right arm and right leg crushed, Will
iam Alexander, the watchman,
crawled to the telephone this morning
and summoned a doctor and an am
bulance. But for his effort he would
have bled to death in four hours be
fore help could possibly have reached
him. The doctors at Roosevelt hospi
tal, where his leg \yas amputated, say
there is but a bare chance of his re
covery.
Shortly before 3 o'clock..while work
ing at the machinery in the engine
room, his sleeve caught in a bolt, he
was drawn upward, and before^ he
could extricate himself his right arm
and .leg had been crushed between the
ceiling and wheel. When the belt re
volved he dropped to the floor uncon
scious. After a little time he recov
ered his senses. His own blood had
formed a pool about him and he knew
no one would enter the building until
7 o'clcock.
Across the engine room was a tele
phone. With what agony he dragged
himself across the floor arid upon a
chair alongside the telephone none,
can imagine but himself.'
With his good arm and hand he
managed to ring the bell and tell his
plight to the operator who called a
surgeon and ambulance.
BLYDENBERG
FOUND GDILTY
Jury at Eldora Recommends Life
Imprisonment for the Wife
Murderer.
Special to The Journal.
Eldora, Iowa, Feb. 5.The jury in
the Blydenburgh murder case came in
at 1 o'clock this'morning with a ver
dict of guilty of murder in the first
degree and recommending life im
prisonment.
Attorney Huff, for the defense, filed
a motion for a new trial.
The nerve displayed by Blydenburgh
all thru the long trial was remarked
about upon all sides. Even when the
verdict was read to him not a muscle
of his face indicated that It was of any
concern to him. He went to the
judge's private rooms for a few mo
ments and chatted with his brother
and his attorney, Herbert A. Huff, and
was then taken by a deputy sheriff to
the county jait where he will be lodged
until sentenee is pronounced.
The scerie^at the Blydenburgh home
after the verdict was returned was an
affecting one. Three -motherless chil
dren deplore this crime of their father
and are now left alone. Mrs. Keller,
sister of Mrs. Blydenburgh, is rejoiced
over the verdict and feels that hef sis
ter's murder will be expiated. She will
leave at once for her old home and
live In Ohio.
The jurymen left at once for their
homes. The attorneys are worn out
by the long siege.
SAYS FARMERS
DON'T WANT IT
Organ of Protective Tariff League
Declares They Are Opposed
to Reciprocity.
Special to Xh Journal.
New York, Feb. 5.The American
Economist organ of the American
Protective Tariff League, to-day says:
Something will be heard in congress
within a short time that will be an in
teresting revelation to reciprocity
shouters who are ready to bargain
away the markets of United States.
Much has been heard in congress this
winter about the wave of reciprocity
sentiment sweeping over the west and
northwest.
It would a.ppear from, the testi
mony "of some democratic agitators
and a few misguided and illogical re
publicans that the American farmers
In the northwest are ready to Invite
the stiffiest kind of competition from
Canadian farmers on all products of
the soil, in order that the American
manufacturer may increase his mar
ket on ..the Canadian side of the bor
der. Before many days the position
of the farmers of the northwest will
be se forth on this question by those
who' are in a position to tell just how
the American farmers feel about the
subject.
It will be demonstrated that the
farmers of the northwest are opposed
to Canadian reciprocity that they
never experienced a time when they
regarded the policy of protection with
so much favor as they do at present
that they see in the rapid develop
ment of agricultural interests in
Canada, Russia and Argentina abund
ant evidence thata policy of protection
to the American farmer is more need
ed than ever before. I will be dem
onstrated that never in the history of
the. United States was there such rea
son for and general demand for the
maintenance of the American polilcy
of protection as there is at this time.

"Not exactly."
"Well approximately."
"He asked me if I would take this
man to be my wedded husband! and I
said-'yes.' He asked Mr. Hargrave a
similar question."
"Well, what did you next do?"
"We left the office together and
came back here to Minneapolis."
The witness
then told of securing
rooms in this city,,
A letter written by "the witness to
her parents at Nevada, Iowa, was
identified by the witness and intro
duced as

nounced the daughter's marriage to
Hargrave.
Uazzard's Damaging S.
At the end of the letter Hazzard
had written the following postscript:
Dear Mrs. Fitzpatrick: Viva has told
you all there Is to be told and I am only
adding this postscript to assure you of
my love for her," and of my earnest desire
to be all that you can ask in your son-in
law. We shall try hard to get along com
fortably and I want you to feel that this
first letter brings to both you and Mr.
Fitzpatrick the knowledge that I shall care
for her and love her all thru my life.
Faithfully always.
Samuel C. Hargrave.
Hundreds of persons eager to "be in
on" whatever sensation was coming
packed the halls in front of Judge
Brooks' court room this morning. They
were disappointed, however, and no
one but officials, witnesses and ladies
were allowed inside.
Mrs. Hargrave then told of visiting
various places and being introduced as
the defendant's wife at various func
tions, among- them being a church so
cial.
Devotion by Mail.
Another letter written by the de
fendant and addressed -to Mrs. &. C.
Hargrave was introduced. The con
tents were sentimental to a degree.
Among other things the writer said:
I shall send this at once, so you may
know where I am, and It brings you my
whole heart's love and every bit of my
life's work. I shall be so lonely without
you, dear, and I want you every minute
of the day. To-moi-row is my birthday84
so you see the gray hairs are justified.
This is a pretty little town, and I hope
I may get something out of it. Love me,
dearie girl, as I love you, and know that
I am always your very own loving hus
band. Sam.
Dr. Burfield Brought In.
Dr. Lindo Burfield's part-in the love
drama was then gone into.
"Are you acquainted with Dr. Linda
Burfield?" asked Mr. Jelley.
"Yes." "Where did you meet her?'* "At
Mrs. Strong's."
"How were you introduced to her?
"As Mrs. .Hargrave."
Asked about her feelings in regard
to Dr. Burfield the witness said:
"I had'received anonymous letters
telling" of' Mr. Hargrave's actions with
Dr. Burfield. I didn't believe them,
but they hurt and Mr. Hargrave knew
it. He was going into business with
her, but on account of the way I felt
he decided riot to, He then wrote a
letter to Dr. Burfield breaking off his
relations -with her."
"Was'ther a- carbon copy4j^?*that
letter?" "Yes."

A Break With the Doctor.
This letter was then introduced in
evidence without objection. It reads
as follows:
Oct. 18, '03,
Dear LindaAfter thinking matters
over thoroly, I have come to the definite
conclusion that it is better to let things
stand as they are. In other words, my
first duty, no matter which way it comes,
belongs to my wife. Therefore I shall
stand by my first decision and will at
tend strictly -to the business I am now
doing. I am very sorry to occasion you
an inconvenience or any displeasure, but I
have talked it all over with a disinterested
party and I have heard from my father
in-law, who also advises me in this way.
Yesterday another of those disreputable
letters reached my wife, and I at once took
steps to prevent their recurrence. They
can be productive of nothing but harm
to all concerned, and they have only suc
ceeded in putting my duty more strongly
before me. The latter consists in attend
ing to the work I am now engaged in -and
in doing the right thing by her who bears
my name. This should appeal to you, and
I believe that after what has occurred
you will some day realize that I have risen
to a proper conception of right living. I
feel fully convinced that nothing but un
happiness can result in anything of a busi
ness or personal relation between us.
Therefore I have come to the above de
cision.
An Alleged Illegal Marriage.
The Hazzard-Burfield wedding day
was next brought to the witness' at
tention.
"Have you any distinct, remem-,
brance of the 11th day of November^
Mrs. Hargrave?"
"Yes. I had lunch with my hus
band and was in his .office at the Lum-'
ber Exchange building."
"Where did Mr. Hargrave stay on
the night of Nov. 11?" "Why, he
stayed at home."
"Where did he stay on the night of
the 12th?" ,"At home."
"On the 13th?" "At home."
On the afternoon of Saturday, Nov.
14, the witness said Hargrave told'he
good-by, saying:
"Be sure and' be at the of flee at 4/
sweetheart."
She says she went to the office and
found a note saying that a business
engagement had called him away and
telling her not to wait. She Went
home and Mr. Hargrave did not come
home until the next day.
Said She Was Not His Wife.
Upon his return he told her that she
was not his wife.
"What did you say then?
"I said, 'Well what am I, then
He did not answer and I said, 'Well,
then, I suppose I am your mistress?'
He Said: 'No, you are my common
law "wife."'
"What, if anything, did he say about
the St. Paul marriage?" "He said'
there was no record of it."
"After the interview between your
self, Mr. Hargrave and your father,
where did your husband go?" "I don't
know." "Has he ever returned to
you? "No. I soon afterward, went
home to live with my parents.
Mr. Stiles Cross-Examines.
Mr. /Jelley then gave the witness
over to Mr. Stiles, who proceeded with
a minute cross-examination.
"Where were you first married?"
"At my home."
"How long did you live together as
man and wife?" "A little over a
year."
"You were again married?" "Yes^**
"When and where?" "May 16, 1896,
at Huron, S. D."
"The name of this second hus

therein.

opened for the state.
Counsel detailed' at length the
state's case and held the interest of
the crowd, which was wedged into
the courtroom: He said that the
complaining witness, Viva Fithpat
rick, had been married twice before
her alleged marriage with the de
fendant. Her vfirst husband secured
a divorce from her she obtained a
legal separation from her second ex-
periment-and.-then, it is claimed by
the state, she married Hazzard. This
latter ceremony, it Is alleged, was
performed in'St. Pau by Court Com

sent for her father, who came at once
and' confronted the supposed hus

attorney, having married Dr. Bur

Brooklyn, N. Y Nov. 19, 1903.
Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y.
Gentlemen:About two years ago
this extremely robust body of mine
showed signs that something was
wrong with it. My usual vigor gave
place to a feeling of lassitude. I was
annoyed by frequent headaches, occa
Bional spells of dizziness, and instead
oi my usual good appetite could hard
ly force myself to eat a meal. Two
physicians whom I consulted said I
had malaria, but their prescriptions
did me no good.. A third one whom I
consulted told me my kidneys were
out of order and advised me to take
Swamp-Root.
I got half a dozen bottles and could
feel the benefit before I had finished
the first one. By the time I had
taken six bottles I felt I was cured.
My appetite had come back, the head
ache had disappeared, and I felt as fit
as the day I met Sullivan at New Or
leans. As a pleasant and speedy rem
edy and a sure strength builder, it
gives me pleasure to recommend
Swamp-Root to all my friendsj
