The Testimony All In-Argu-

ine taking of testimoay Jn the
Meyer case was concluded yesterday,
and the arguments will probably be
gin irony. Domewnst ol a sensation
was creatud by the testimony of little
uarrie Meyer, a sweet looking little
girl of about 13 years of age, of un
common intellfc ence, and intensely de
voted to her father. - Daring her ex
amination she was akd if her father
had always been kind to hs
iamuy ana treated tbbtn well.

silercs came ovpr the conit. The
father's heart was touched, an 1 bow
ing his hoed he gave vent to his grief
in a fit of tears and sobs. The jury
were profoundly moved, and mauy ot
mem louaeu on wan moistened eyes,
while others had recourse to handker
chiefs to wipe off the tears they could
not restrain. It was some minutes

to tne rooms, at the east end opposite

Mr. Hamler was next called. He
said : I room on tbe third floor of the
building at 227 Second street I am
acquainted with the formation of the
ball opposite Meyer s door. On vf h
teraay i wu asaeu to experiment in
trying to see a Derson from Mm.
Odell's door standing at Meyer's door
and owing to tbe curvature in the
wall I could not see him. Gen. Tur
ner is the man who stood at Mover's
door end he is a larger man than Mpv
er and I cou'd not eea him. I remem
ber when Mrs. Meyer came back from
jacason. i passed by ner rooms next
morning and stopped and spoke to
her. I was at work the niebt she
got home. I was in her rooms two or
three times between the time she got
bsck and the killing. I knew Mr. W.
o Uunnavant. 1 met him in Mrs.
Meyer's room once, and ones I met
mm on tne stairs and a third time I
met him upstairs in Mrs. Meyer's
room. There ware present UDBiairs
Mrs. ksvis, air. , Mrs. Ulenning,
Mrs. Meyer, Mrs. Meyer's daughter,
Mr. Dnnnavant and mvself. I am ac
quainted with Mr. M.ver hut I can't
say I know bis associates.
Vrou bxamxntd by Slate It a person
slands up close to Mr. Meyer's door
you cannot see them from Mrs. Odell's
door, tfat if they bo across the hall
n front of Mrs. Odell's door and look
from the north wall van can dps the
clothing of a man standing at Meyer's
oor. a tains, me curve in tne wall is
about one foot and a half. I have vie
d Mrs. Meyer wh"n her husband
was not at home. I have to naxn hv
her door in going up to mv room, and
frequen ly see her in pa!6ing. And I
irtquant'y left my key in her room so
(hat tbey could get it to clean my room
up. I have frequently stopped by to
hear her litt'e girl, Carrie, play on the
organ, i aon t remember tbe exact
day I met Mr. Dnnnavant there. I
think Mrs. Meyer was aone for about
one week, and thi3 whs, I think, trie
week before she left. The time I met
him there he only staved for a short
time ana leit. i also met Dunnavant
one time at tbe foot of the
steps taking to Mrs. Mever. I
tbiak they were on the eidwalk.
Mrs. Meer introduced me to Mr.
Dunnavunt. I tbink the second time
met Dunnavant was when he and a
friend came home once with Mrs.
Meyer and Mrs. Davis. I saw them
goirg up stairs. It wss night I was
not a- work that night. They must
have gone np iuto their rooms.
The defense then introduced Cant.
Pryde, of the police force. The jury
were sent out and tne Blate objected
to Pryde's stating Dnnnavant's confes
sion as he lay dying noon the floor, in
which be said to Pryde, "It is all my
own fault." After argument of conn
tel the Court ruled out anything the
dying man might have said re ating to
hi opin'on nf tbe diin ulty.
Capt. Pryde stated that he was tbe
firit person on the scene eftT tbe
shooting. That when he got in the
room Dunnavant wss lying in the
front room on his face, lie saw be
was ttill alive. He then turned him
over, got tome water snd tbrew it in
hisfacB. That then Dunnavant sat
up. He spit a large chew of tobacco
out of his mouth, and he gave him
some water. That Dunnavant said he
was dying. (His other language, that
"It is my fault " was not permitted to
go to the jury ) Witness said he died
io about twen'y minutes. Witness
a'so identified tbe shiitsand vest as
those taken from Dnnnavant, and
there was no powder burn on his
clothing and his pants we.e properly
Mrs. Helen Davis wss introduced.
She te tfied: I know Meyer and
family Intimately. We are well ac
quainted, and I live on the third floor,

well. He visited Mrs. Mtyer. Tbey
weie intimate friends. I remember
the dtte of the killing. I met Mr.
Dunr avsnt some seven or eight timet
in Mrs. Meyer's rr.om. I never heard
them converse about the relations be
tween them. I heard Mr. Dnnnavant
pay latt August that he would rmve
heaven and earth to separate Meyer
and his wife. Mr. Dunnavant was
veiy respectful to Mrs. Meyer, and I
m't htm in her room some seven or
eight times. I know that Mrs. Meyer

in her rooms. I know she changed

persons coming up stairs, and in a few
minutes I heard tbe man go down the

Mrs. Meyer and the children next

opened and I saw both rooms. I
know it was a man woo came up and
went down tbe steps. I could tell it
by his steps on tbe stairs,and it seemed
to be a kind ot snuiu ng ttap like the
man bad on shoes tot large for him. I
was also in Mrd.' Meyer's room on

"What caused you to listen to these
persons coming np stairs, and pay so
much attention to them?"
My curiosity, that's all. I know
the man did not go in the room. The
stove was just west of Meyer's west

and the curve in the wall. It is a

after the killing Mrs. Meyer sold tbe
Why did you not go down stairs

Mr. Charles Richards being Intro
daced testified: I have an icehouse
scross the street opposite Meyer's
rooms. I went over with Gen. Turner
to make an experiment with tbe
matches last night in the hail. J
could not distinguish a person stand
ing at Meyer's door from Mrs. Odell's
door, i conia see a light which liiu
minated that end of the hall, but tbe
curve Jn the wall prevented me from
seeing the person at Meyer's door, and
I don't think I could distinguish a
wbttn man from a colored man.
"Did yon ever witness a meeting
between Dunnavant and Mre.Meyer? '
"Yes; one morning early, about 6
o clock, last July. I had just opened
my shop when Mr. Dunnavant cinie
along with some tools in his hand snd
Mrs. Meyer came down from her
rooms acrcss the street, going, as
thought, to the butcher shop. Dun
navant beckoned to her. She looked
at him, but did not stop. He then
went across tbe street and joined her
sbout Jefferson street, and they
walked on together. I thought no

"Mrs. Meyer was sitting by me on a
sifa. I said to Mr. Dunnavant not to
talk so or he would cause trouble be
tween Meyer and his wife, and then
he said that wis what he wanted to do.
We went from the parlor into ths
front room to drink some beer. Mr.
Dunnavant asked me if I thought Mrs
Meyer was much mashed on her hat

A (tar she bad become sufficient
ly com nosed she said, between ber
sorts, "Papa has always been to us
very kind. He has always given us
all we wanted. He never denied any
of us anything. He has been so good
and loved us so much."
Gen, Peters cross examined the wit

with her in her great bereavoment,
"We came to Memphis on Monday

o'clock st night. We changed cats at

at his passing through my room. I I
saw him hug and kits mamma nearly
