, tSFECIAL TELEGRAM TO TOTS DISPATCH.
CnAKLE.STO.K, S. C, June 26. The in
terest in the great murder trial increases.
It was intensified to-day by the appearance
ot Dr. JIcPov upon the witness stand. The
day was bright and hot. The court room
was p3:ked almost to suffocation. Dr. Me-.
Don took his scat within the bar at about
9J0 He vas greeted by many of his
friends and entered into a lively conversa
tion with them. "Hats off," shouted a
Deputy Sheriff, and Mr. Cohen, counsel for
the defense, arose to his work. He
made no opening. "Call Geo. "Wash
ington Harper," he said. The eyes
of the blacks in the audience began to
glisten. Harrier is the colored coachman
ttho heard the pistol shot in Dr. McDow's
office and who was not placed upon the stand
by the prosecution. He said he saw a gen
tleman alight from a horse car and go to
Dr. McDow's ofice. Five minutes after he
disappeared the coachman said he heard the
report of pistol. A long, loud groan fol
lowed. Then he heard some one shout in an
excited tone of voice:
"As you said you would tsBmy life, I
have taken yours!"
As the witness left the stand Governor
McGrath arose with stately dignity. He
said: "Your Honor, according to the law
of the State and to the practice in the South
Carolina courts, the accused wishes to be
allowed to state the circumstances of this
31'DOW OK THE STAXD.
Judge Kershaw bowed and Dr. McDow
arose and walked to the witness box. All
eyes were upon him; every Ian ceased
waving. The Doctor was sworn and sat
down as straight as an arrow. He wore a
light four-in-hand tie and a dark suit. He
was quite pale. He placed his right hand
upon his knee and rested the other upon his
hip. He was apparently very cool and
showed no signs of agitation. After giving
his name and residence, he said that he
well remembered the 12th of March last. It
was impressed upon his memorv, because on
that dav he killed Captain Dawson. He
had known the Captain by sight, but bad
never had any conversation with him until
that day. His feeling toward him was
pleasant. There was no reason why it
should be otherwise. He said:
1 met him that dav In the vestibule of mi
house. 1 was in the sitting room upstairs
w hen I heard the sound of the gong. As I was
waiting for dinner I did not wait for a servant
to open the door. I opened it myself. Captain
Dawson said: "Are you Dr. McDowT" I replied:
"I am Dr. McDow." He said "I am Captain
Dawson." "Walk in. Captain," I answered. He
had a domineering air and was aggressive and
irritable. As we entered the office the Captain
said: "Dr. McDow, I have Just been informed
of jour nngentlemanly conduct to one of my
servants." I replied: "That I have been un-
fentlemanly to one of Tour servants is untrue."
felt indignant at the words. The Captain
was a large, muscular man, I was a mere
pigmy at his side. He next saidt "I give youo
understand, sir, that she is under m v protection
and I forbid you to speak to her.1' I replied
that I sbonld speak to her when I pleased and
until ne snowed some authority for his inter
ference. He said: "If yon speak to her again
I shall publish you in my paper." I replied: "If
you do, you infernal scoundrel, I shall hold you
responsible. Now get out of my office." He
instantly struck me over the head with his
cane. At the same time he used his fist and
knocked me across the lounge.
MDOWS STOBY OP THE MURDER.
These0 answers were brought out by Gov
ernor McGrath in a very impressive man
ner. The counsel for the prosecution were
nettled, and began to protest against his
putting leading questions to the accused.
The doctor continued his evidence.
"While I was endeavoring to 'resume my foot
ing ana arise from the sofa the Captain fol
lowed me up and struck me again on the head
with bis cane. The blow lett a slight contusion
upon the left side of my hea-. I was afraid of
losing my life. I did not know out what the
next blow would kill me. I was positive that I
was about to receive severe bodilj harm. Jly
impulse was to save myself. I had a pistol in
my hip pocket. I used it for protection. I
arose in close proximity to the Captain and
fired. He seemed to be in front of me.
Judge McGrath (sternly) What do you
mean, sir, by saying be seemed to be?
The witness immediately left out the word
He was in front of me, but I have a con
fused idea of the exact situation. I habit
ually carry a pistol because I think it necessarv.
X had put the pistol into my pocket that morn
ing. As soon as the shot was fired the Captain
groaned and I cried: "You have tried to take
my life, sir, and now I have taken lours." He
staggered toward the desk in the 'back of the
office and fell in the angle of the room be
tween the bookcase and the walk I stood for a
moment dumfounded. I then felt of his pulse.
The idea of calling in medical attendance
flashed through my mind, but I saw that he
was dying: that he was in fact al
ready dead. I lost all self-control after
I had hred the shot. I was not aware that the
pistol was pointed at any vital part of the
body. The shot was fired, not for the purpose
of killing him, but for my own protection. I
would have preferred to disable him, I felt
that he had insulted me, and that an unpro
voked injury had been done to me. If possible
I would have restored him to life but the
wound was fatal and he was dead. I was hor
rified and bewildered, for I well knew of tho
Scandal that was sure to follow the occurrence.
In my despair I first hid his hat and cane in the
sink in the yard where they were afterward
found. I next
TRIED TO CONCEAL THE BODY
Is the dark closet. Ihad no control over my
reason. I scarcely knew what I did. X lifted
the body by the arms and drew it in the halL I
then drew the nails from the door of the closet
and tore up the flooring. Finding that there
was not time enough to hide the body under
the floor, I got a spade and dug a hole, I threw
the earth against the scantlings and placed the
body In the hole. I got the spade from the
stable. It required much exertion bo lift the
body and drag it into the closet. After It had
been placed in the hole I realized that my
actions were foolish and altogether wrong.
The unwonted exertion seemed to have restored
my reason. I was entirely exhausted and went
out for air. I made Up my mind to return the
body to the office and surrender myself. I
came back and made several efforts to remove
the body from the hole. I took it by the hand
and tried to raise the bead, but I could not. I
was too much fatigued. As the closet was
quite aark I went out and bought a candle.
ben I returned I lighted the candle and
again tried to extricate the body. The head
lay under a beam on a piece of flooring. With
bard work I managed to draw the body out of
the hole. The scratches and abrasions that
appeared upon the forehead were made while
getting It out ot the closet. I drew the body
back to my office and left it lylnc near the door.
I brushed the sand from mv clothes and wiped
the blood from my face. The blood came from
the mouth and nose of the corpse while it was
lying in the closet. I bitterly regretted the
toscessity that compelled me to kill Captain
Dawson. I was nearly craiy. I wandered over
the house, and walked un and down the room
pulling my hair. I finally determined to sur
render myself immediately. I gave myself up
to Policeman Gordon, who drove me to the
station house. There I was manacled and car
ried to the jail in the patrol wagon. I pro
tested against this indignity, but was told that
it was done according to the law and I must
oirw nr self-defense.
Mr. McDow continued as follows:
1 knew who Dawson meant when he referred
to the servant and said I had not acted gentle
manly toward her. He meant the woman who
had acted as governess for his children. She
was the' same woman who was on the stand
yesterday, and yesterday was the first time 1
cave seen her since Captain Dawson's death.
I have said I shot Captain Dawson for self
protection. He was using his cane and his fist,
and the pistol was the only available means of
defense that I bad about me. I could not es
cape from Captain Dawson nor fly from him.
He notonlv had me In bis power, but I thought
imssiuiy tuat uc miut uave a weapon upon 01S
Iierson. If he had addressed me courteously
e would have been treated differently. I had

. Mr. Smith eoaducted the cross-examination
He is said to be the best cross-examiner
injthe State. In answer to his ques
tions the witness said that he graduated
from the Cumberland University, in Tenne
see, in 1874. Soon after that he went to the
upper part of South Carolina to live. After
living there three years he came to Charles
ton. Soon after graduation he taught school
for awhile. He afterward studied medicine
with his uncle.
Mr. Smith Did you not leave Tennessee
because yon.had a difficulty there?
The prisoner's counsel objected. Mr.
Smith insisted that he had aright to scruti
nize the lite of the prisoner and ascertain
his moral character, so as to allow the jury
to form an opinion as to his credibility. The
Judge ruled against him after a long argu
ment and Mr. Smith finally gave up the at
tempt to probe into the Doctor's former

A Benutifnl Fiend Sentenced for Shock
InelT Bnrninc a Child She Gives the
Judffe a frnmple ot Her
rsrrciAL txlegbav to the rjrsrATctt.i
New Yoek, June 26. Mrs. Annie Du
bois, who burned her 7-year-old stepdaugh
ter, Delia, cruelly with a red-hot hair-curling
iron, was arraigned to-day in the Gen
eral Session before Judge Martine to receive
sentence under her plea of guilty. "When
Mrs. Dubois approached the bar it was
difficult to realize that she had treated a
child so barbarously. She is still an attract
ive young woman and she was attired in a
fashionable gown of green cloth, with a hat
to match and new tan covered gloves on her
small hands. "When the clerk asked Mrs.
Dubois whether she had anything to say
why judgment shonld not be pronounced
against her she turned to her lawyer and
said. "My counsel will speak for me." He
urged clemency on the ground that she
had never before been convicted of any
criminal offense. Taking up the photo
graph of the burned child and holding it
before him for a moment Judge Martine
"You were permitted to plead guilty of
assanlt in the third degree, simply because
your little victim was so voung and be
sides in such a weak mentaT condition that
it is doubtless if her testimony could have
been permitted on your trial. I have not
seen the child butl have here a photo which
is a sickening proof of your fiendish cruel
ty to her. The crime was an outrageous
one. The poor child, particularly because
of her mental infirmity.should have appealed
to your sympathy and care if you had the
heart ot a good woman, xsut yon naa not.
Tour whole conduct shows that you have a
most wicked and cruel disposition. In the
acceptance of yonr plea all of the consider
ation that you are entitled to, and far more,
has been shown to yon. I deeply regret
indeed, that it was, of necessity, shown to
"you. I shall impose the full penalty possi
ble under your plea. I sentence you to the
penitentiary at hard labor for one year and
to pay a fine of $500, you to stand committed,
a day for each dollar, until the fine is paid.
I will add that you need not send any one
to me to have the fine remitted for I shall
never remit it. I propose -that unless the
fine is paid yon shall serve a day for each
dollar of it."
"Thank yon," snapped Mrs. Dubois
spitefully, as she turned from the bar.

LOSS OP THE RAILROADS.
Tho Pennsylvania Company Will Have to
Expend Nearly S2,000,000.
Philadelphia, June 26. The Board
of Directors of the Pennsylvania Railroad
to-day held their first meeting since the
recent floods. The result of the examination
of the several main lines was discussed, and
while no accurate estimate was submitted as
to the cost ot making repairs and placing
the property in the same condition as it was
before the flood, reports su fficiently in de
tail were presented to show that on all the
lines of the Pennsylvania Railroad system,
including the Philadelphia and Erie Bail
road and the Northern Central Railway, the
damage done would not exceed from 51,
500,000 to $1,750,000.
This amount will be entirelv supplied
from the surplus profits of all the com
panies whose lines were affected, which sur
plus is intended to meet just such extraor
dinary emergencies. The enrrent net
revenues of the several companies will,
therefore, not be affected in. any way ex
cept by the loss of traffic.
