STATE PROCEEDING CAREFULLY
I N THE BIGAMY CASE.,
Marriage of Hazzard to Viva Fitoh-
patri ck Expected to Shown by
the Man Who Performed the Cere-
monyliine of Defense Somewhat
The state laid the foundations of
its bigamy case against Samuel C.
Hazzard yesterday. It will begin the
superstructure Monday. The marriage
of Hazzard to Linda Burfield, Nov.
11, 1903, was proved by the county
records and by a witness to the cere

Viva Fitzpatrick believed made her
the wife of Hazzard, performed in St.
Paul, on April 7, was sworn to by the
complaining witness. Her testimony
was given in a convincing manner a nd
remained unchanged thru a rigid
cross-examination. Her story was cor
roborated in many details by strong

lived with Miss Fitzpatrick and in
troduced her as his wife on numerous

Gallick to Testify.
The state next Monday expects to in
troduce Court Commissioner Qallick,
who will, it is understood, testify to
having performed the Hazzard-FItz
patrick ceremony, altho he is unable
to fix the date thereof.
Further corroborating testimony
will also be ut in, and documentary
proofs of the prosecuting witness' di
vorce from her two former husbands
have been sent for and will be intro
duced in eviden ce to checkmate the
defendant's apparent intention of
questioning these divorces to prove
Miss Fitchpatrick's last marriage ille
Hazzard's Defense In Doubt.
What Hazzard's defense will be is
yet a conundrum. It is very evident
from the cross-examination of the
state's witnesses that an attempt will be
made to pro ve the complaining wit
ness an adventuress (who has lived as
the wife of different men at different
times. The exemplary character and
conduct of the defendant will also be
dwelt upon. For the rest of the case
the fact that the records do not show
a marriage between Hazzard and Viva
Fitzpatrick may be enlarg ed upon and
an effort may made to show that no
ceremony such as described by the
prosecuting witness was performed by
Court Commissioner Gallick, April 7.
A large delegation of women sym
pathizers surrounded Viva Fitzpat
rick yesterday afternoon and co n
gratulated her upon the admirable
way in which she had testified. Haz
zard's latest wife sat ba ck of the de
fendant thruout the day a nd ner v
ously transcribed copious notes, a nd
every now a nd then offered some word
of advice to Hazzard.
After three hours of cross-exam
ination Mr. Stiles announced that he
had finished with the prosecuting wit
ness. The state then called Dr. C.
E. Dutton, who swore to attending
the defenda nt and to seeing Viva
Fitzpatrick in the apartments, a nd
to her being addressed by Hazzard
as his wife and as Mrs, Hargarve.
Mrs. Harriet Fitchpatric, the moth
er of "wife No. 2," was next sworn.
The witness identified three letters
which were introduced in evidence.
The epistles were written by Hazzard
a nd were of the approved filial variety,'
signed "your affectionate son, Sam."
J. A. Fitchpatrick, Viva's father a nd
an Iowa banker, business man and
state senator, also took the sta nd and
corroborated his daughter's story of
her visit to her home in company
with Hazzard, and of the conversation
when Viva was informed she was not
the defendant's legal but his "com
mon law wife."
Mrs. Kate Strong, proprietor of the
boardi ng house where the Hazzards
lived, corroborated the complaining
witness' testimony in several details
and indignant ly denied that she had
ever suspected that Hazzard and Viva
Fitzpatrick were not man and wife.
Harry Greesang, the last witness of
the afternoon, swore to meeting the
complaining witness as Mrs. Hazzard
and as a childhood's friend of the de
fendant stated that" his name is
Samuel C. Hazzard.

Only two out of twelve leading

Inspector W McCall in the past
fortnight are selling standard milk to
their patrons, and a vigorous crusade
will be made by the health depart
ment to compel proprietors to dis
pen se good milk and cream instead of
skimmed and watered adulterations.
It has been taken for granted that
the eating-houses would serve milk as
they obtained it from the dairies, and
now that these are supplying a su
perior article there appeared to be no
reason for watching the restaurants
closely. Several complaints by peo
ple who knew what real milk was
caus ed Health Commissioner P. M.
Hall to start an investigation.
There is ample eviden ce to show
that the milk is skimmed and wa
tered after being received from the
dairies, and that cream is thinned out
by liberal portions of milk. Two pro
prietors, one of them a Chinaman,
confessed that they knew nothing of
the law requiring a standard for milk,
but promised not to meddle any mor e.
A proprietor of a lunchroom in one
of the big office buildings, where milk
is a favorite beverage*, showed an in
clination to be aggressive, ut the
threat of arrest and the proof that
the milk was tampered with after
