EYE-WITNESS ON THE STAND
Cumulative Testimony Damaging to
Case of -Accused Lawyer.
Star Witness To-day.
Goshen N T Nov a) Death sure and
instantaneous will follow a momentary
pressure on the pneumogastric nerve ac
cording to tcstlmons given to-day at the
trial of Burton W Gibson by Dr George
W KInt. official physician of liuason
Counts Is J and applied by the hand
of an adept such pressure will leave no
surfacft Indications behind It
Dr King's tcstlmons was a fiat con
flrmatlon of the evidence which will be
presented to morrow by Dr Otto IL
Schultz star witness for the prosecution,
and Is of vital Importance In conse
quence Hi. testlmons which detailed
the results of the autopss performed on
the bods of Countess Szabo was not
weakened In any was on cross examlna
tion bs J O Reilly u medico legal prac
tltioner Introduced by the defense. In
fact It was the cross examination which
brought out the most damaging facts
about tl e defendant
Dr King on direct examination made
tl Is positive declaration
The cause of death was strangulation
resulting from pressure on the outside
of the throat
Death AAonld lie luatantuneou
He declared the pressure had been ap
plied upward and outward Llsewherehe
described the technical condition of the
throat which led to his conclusion as
to the c-iuse of death And then taken
over for cross-examination bs O RUUy
the fact came out regarding the ease
with which death might be induced by
such pressure on tlie pneumogastric
nerve
How lone would such pressure have
to be applied he was asked
I rom a few seconds to a few min
tites was the rcpls And the pressure
would produce Instantaneous death with
out leaving ans external marks, and
wiuld produce the conditions which were
fo ind in the throat of the deceased
Justice Tompkins who is presiding at
the trial brought out the tinal touch
And the length of time In which death
would 'nsue he askedj. would depend
upon the strength and skill of the person
applslng the force"
ies sir replied the witness.
Tl e peculiar strength of the hands of
it a ciised lawscr has heretofore ben
pointed c ut.
Dr Kings testlmons came as a s nsa
tiona) climax t the testimonv of John
Mintun fciven earlier in the dav which
placed OibFOn in such an attitude with
respe t t C ountess Szabo at the mfnute
thev I ppled into Greenwood Iake as
tv II law enabled 1 im to appis the
1 ressure described hs Dr King
I sw two stooping figures in the
joat Thev noved as though to pass
ich i thir and change seats. Both stood
straight their hands were on the gun
j f the boat When they got sidi
hs slue dibsou threw his left arm across
hir neck and si ouldcr He made x slid
len movement with his right arm to
ward the upper part of her bods 1
(ouldnt free where his right hand had
g i e because his bods obstructed uis
lew The woman fell backward and
he man forward
Proceeding he described what follow
ed the splash in the water The woman
ever appeared again Gibson came to
he surface iwentv feet awav from the
boat which float -d right side up
C ross-cxamin ttlon brought out the
fa t that Minium did not tell this story
ef the apparent struggle between the
woman and the man at the prellmlnars
1 earing though he swore at trat time
that he had told all 1 c saw Ls was of
explanation he said that he had started
to tell it and the counsel for the de
f nsc tried to tangle him up ind ho
decided to tell no more. Re-direct ex
amlnatlon brought out the fact that he
had told the full story before the grand
Jurs tl e minutes of which were pro
duced and read into the records
Banker on Stand
As the final telling part of the day
agiinst the defendant, john W Arm
strong of the Franklin Savings Bank
testified that when Gibson first appeared
as executor of the estate ef Rose Szabo
to draw out what savings she had on de
posit there he said that the countess
had died of heart disease and Bright s
disease
There was also put In evidence during
the das the will of Mrs. Szabo leaving
her estate to her mother and making
Gibson her executor and the letter of
adminstration which he later took out,
to which was attached the waiver of
citation signed by a. Mrs. Petronella
Menschlk mother of the deceased
Franz Menschlk brother of Mrs Men
schik next took the stand and with
Counsellor Charles Goldzler of tbe de
fense acting as interpreter swore that
not only had his mother never been In
Vmerlca but that je was actually dead
at the time the waiver Is alleged, to have
been signed
Attaches of half a lozen banks also
appeared and told of Gibson s with
drawal of the dead woman s funds as
executor of her estate
But It was the testlmons of Minturn
supplemented by that of Dr King which
told most heavils against Gibson s
chances to das
There Is little hint as yet as to the na
ture of his defense though counsel for
Gibson threw out a suggestion to-day
when he declared We are not saying
that Mrs. Szabo died of nobody knows
what .
Dr King was questioned closely as to
the condition of the organs of the de
ceased and there were references to
Bright s disease but tbe doctor this
acain while he was under cross-examina
tlon bluntlyThformcd the counsel advo
cate that no matter what the condition
of the woman s kidneys might have
been. It could not have produced the evl
dence of strangulation In her throat.
A marked feature of Gibson s attitude
Is his friendliness for the prosecution.
He sits In court and converses frequent
ly with District Attorney Rogers and
never falls to pass the time of day with
Mr WTasservogel and Mr Murphy ot
District Attorney Whitmans staff who
are assisting Rogers In the prosecution
of the case.
THERE'S ALWAYS DANGER OF

DOWN TO DEFEAT
Trades Autonomy System Up
held by American Fed
eration of Labor.
Rochester N T Nov "0 The meri
can federation of Lalior will continue
to conduct its affairs as a trades auton
omy organization This was decided bs
a delcgxti roll call vote to das after
hours of discussion of a proposed change
to Industrialism Wl ire Practical Tl e
feleration system was upheld by 10 "d
otes against 5"9
The Irewlng antagonism towarl the
hoclallst a tlvitles an 1 political bv plass
at this convention tlamed up sreral
times to das President Gompers hn
been personally attacked and is ex
pected to answer to-morrow in "in ef
fectlve way
The discussion f Industrialism as x
practical ss stem of trid s ui ion organi
zatlon occupied the day s proceedings.
I vers member of the 1 nlteil Mine
Workers which brought the matter be
fore the delegation bv Instruction urged
Its adoption -
The Issue as presented was not a de
mand for a declarati )n in favor of
straight laced organization of unions h
industries. Tl e proposition brought for
ward bs Secretars John Walker of the
education committee In a minority re
po t declares In substance
That one organization shall hold Juris
diet on over the workers In one countrj
wren) practical and that where a ma
Jonts of the men actually involved be
Heve one organization to be impractl
cable thes shall federate In a depart
ment.
The socialists polled tHelr vote for the
measure
Mitchell ldreaea Delegate
Jol n Mitchell pleaded with the dele
fiates to act upon the question as the
experiences Im each of their organlza
tions warranted He said he not only
supported the matter because he was
so instructed but because he believed
that more consideration should be given
to amalgamating the organization of men
emplosed In one Industrs He pointed
out the growth and strength of the
United Mine W orkers America s greatest
labor union which holds jurisdiction
over every man employed around
mine
A serious situation was created when
Delegate Egan of the T-pographicaI
union said
I am trying to bring out th s point
The people who try to force us Into
adopting Industrialism are outside of our
labor movement They have been the
representatives of Free Love and
Fletcherlsm
Daniel Tobln president of the Inter
national Brotherhood of Teamsters,
spoke vehemently against the adoption
of the report. He daclared the proposed
change from the present form of the
trades autonomy to the industrial sss
tern would mean the ending of his union
Then Tobln electrified the body by
bringing to Its attention a newspaper
story wnlcn ridiculed President Gom
pers, and declared the latter was not a
trades unionist He said he had waited
for Duncan MacDonald of the Miners
who was named as the authority In the
story for the reflections upon Mr Gom
pers, to, come forward with a denial
lyit that over twenty four hours had
elapsed without It
President Gompers announced his In
