WAS I A BLACKMAIL PLOT?
Relations of the Pair Said Not to Have
Special to The Journal.
Antigo, Wis., Dec. 8.A story of
blackmail is said to be behind the mur
der of Dr. Harris in Chicago by A. C.
Campbell of this city. Mr. Campbell
is one of the best-known business men
in the city and is manager of the Kel
logg Lumber company at Polar. For
eighteen years his home has been here.
His wife is the daughter of a wealthy
Langlade county business man.
The lawyers who have been watch
ing the case say there is one of the
most striking stories of extortion be
hind the murder that has been told in
the west for years, but they* refuse
to give details at this time. As nearly
as can be learned, however, Dr. Harris
had no improper relations with Camp
bell's wife, but thru mistaken identity
Campbell wag led to believe that such
relations had existed. I was only re

IKDSSMAN CAS E
Continued From First Page.-
Monday,by First Assistant County At
torney John F. Dahl, who will open the
state's ease. His address will be brief
and he will simply outline what the
state intends ta-try to prove. He will
argue, that the only question in dis
pute- is as to whether or not Sussman
justified, and if he was not, wheth
er he committed the crime with the pre
meditation which is essentia] to murder
in the first degree.
The state's attorney will contend
that evidence will be introduced to
an entirely unjustifiable and cold
blooded murder. He will announce that
the state will introduce evidence to
show premeditation as follows:
Some Important Points.
FirstSussman registered himself
and wife at the Glenwood hotel on the
night of the murder under assumed
SecondSussman made threats to
kill his wife previous to the shooting.
ThirdSussman purchased a revolver
at a Crosse, Wis., on the day before
he returned to Minneapolis and shot
his wife. The revolver purchased will
be identified as the one from which
the shot was fired.
FourthMrs. Sussman was shot while
she was asleep and the probabilities are
that Sussman had left her and re
turned to take her life. The position
and appearance of her body showed a
peaceful, instantaneous and unexpected
FifthSussman, if under the influ
ence of liquor as has been intimated
by the defense, was so voluntarily and
for the purpose of getting up his nerve
for the premeditated crime.
The state has also gome strong evi
dence that can only be brought out in
cross-examination or in rebuttal.
Theory of Defense.
F. L. McGhee today expressed him
self as being satisfied with the jury and
said that he felt confident that they
wore men who would appreciate the
reasonableness and force of his theorv.
This theory seems to be that Sussman,
nealous over the fancied or Teal infi
delity of his wife, and goaded by her
alleged indifference and her refusal to
go to his rescue as a witness in the
Wisconsin forgery case, where he* was
the defendant, was driven to drink, and
that the liquor, together with his In
flamed passions, unbalanced his mind
and made him irresponsible.
Crowds Throng Court.
Court was convened at 9 a.m. today
and the two jurors needed were secured
in a little more than two hours. Thir
teen men in all have been sworn, but
one, John Doll, misunderstood a question
asked him by counsel for the defense
and when the facts were known he was
excused peremptorily with the consent
of County Attorney Al Smith. Mr.
Doll answered in the negative when
asked if he had ever before served on
a jury in a homicide case. He served
in the Olson manslaughter case last
In anticipation of the opening of the
interesting part of the murder case
there was a large crowd in attendance
this morning, patiently awaiting the
completion of the jury and the begin
ning of the trial. First Assistant Coun
ty Attorney John Dahl will make
the opening to the jury for the state,
while the examination of witnesses and
the final argument will be made by
County Attorney Smith himself.
MURPHY ON STAND
He Tells of Numerous Assaults on
Chicago, Dec. 8.Michael Murphy,
a picket in the teamsters' strike, who
pleaded guilty, was on the stand when
the Shea trial was resumed today. He
at length regarding numerous as
saults on non-union men in which he
had taken part. The witness said that
while he was acting as a picket at the
plant of the Schultz Paperbox factory,
Jerry McCarthy, business agent of the
truck drivers' union, drove up and
told him to prevent' all wagons from
leaving the factory with any goods. He
declared that in obedience to this or
der he prevented the wagons of the
Schultz company from delivering any
paper boxes to the shoe house of Selz,
Schwab & Co. because the men in the
latter place were on strike. Murphy
then told of going to the power house
of the Union Traction company on
Hobbie street, in connection with other
pickets, some of whom he mentioned by
name. There they tied wires across the
street so that teams could not pass.
We also ran a car down the street and
took off the brake so that it could not
be moved. Then we placed bricks in
the center of the streets so that
wagons could not pass and about that
we were driven off by the police.''

AFPEOTS PRISON GOODS
Convict-Made Articles May Be Barrel
Washington, Dec. 8.By a practically
unanimous vote the house yesterday*
passed the bill limiting interstate com
merce in articles manufactured by con
vict labor or in any prison or reform
atory. The bill was introduced by Mr.
Hunt (Mo.) a practical stonemason.
Under the Wilson bill which became a
law in 1890, convict-labor-made goods
may enter into active competition with
the goods manufactured by "free
labor," and under this federal law a
state could not pass a law that would
prevent the shipping into the state
prison-made goods of other states. The
law which was passed yesterday abro*
gates the interstate commerce law as a.%
present applied to convict-made goods,!
thereby affording to the different states
and territories the right to inhibit the
shipping of convict-made goods within?
the confines of any state or territory.
