LIZZIE BORDEN ON TRIAL
TALL
RIVER'S SENSATIONAL
DER CASE NOW ON.
MUR-
cAccused Woman Confident Bafflinc Fea
tures of a Double Tragedy That Oc
curred In Broad Daylight Lizzie Bor
den a Fiend or Much Maligned Woman,
The trial of one of the most sensational
murder cases of modern times began on
Monday at Fall River, Mass. Lizzie Bor
den, a young woman of 27 years, is
held to answer for the murder of her
father, Andrew J. Borden, 68 years of
age, and her step-mother, Mrs. Abbie
Borden, herjathers second wife. The
tragedy was inexpressibly fiendish and
bloody. Both victims were killed by
blows of a hatchet or axe, and were
terribly- mutilated by repeated blows.
JThe bodies of both Borden and his
wife were discovered by Lizzie Borden,
who with the servant, Bridget Sullivan,
were' the only persons in the house. Liz
zie said her father had left the house
about 9 o'clock for the Union Bank,
where he intended to deposit some
money. The deposit in the bank was
made at 10. 30. From the bank he re
turned home, arriving there a few min
utes before 11 o'clock. At 11 o'clock
Lizzie Borden says she passed through
tlie sitting room and observed her father
was lying on the lounge reading a news
paper. She was on the way to the barn
to get a piece of wire to mend a flower
pot. Mrs. Borden, Lizzie said, was in
her room on the second floor over the
parlor. According to her story, Lizzie
remained in the barn 15 minutes, and
then returned to the house. As she
reached the sitting room she found her
father's dead body lying in a pool of
blood at the side of the lounge. It was
horribly mutilated. Ovenvhe med at the
sight she screamed for help.
Bridget Sullivan rushed in to see what
was the matter, and at the same time,
Lizzie says, she called loudly for her
mother, but received no response. She
then rushed upstairs to her mother's
room. As she opened the door she be
held her mother's body, mutilated in the
same brutal manner, lying in the middlft
of the floor, and fainted.
The police were hastily summoned.
They found the walls, carpets and wainn
coting of the rooms in which the mur
ders were committed spattered with
blood. It was almost an impossibility
that the 'assassin could have escaped
without having the clothing and person
smeared. An ax was evidently the
deadly weapon, but although two were
found in the house, neither had any blood
stains on tliem.
Suspicion settled, after several arrests,
on Lizzie Borden, because no attempt at
been seen to leave the house by half a
dozen or more neighbors, who would
certainly have seen any one leaving there, tion than have fallen to any President
The examination into the murders re- ' since the war.
suited in Lizzie Borden being held for j Michigan, following the example of
trial, and she is now to have justice done Kansas, has passed a law allowing worn
her after nearly a year's confinement. I en to vote at municipal elections, with
mere is. much curiosity to learn the
States' evidence against Lizzie Borden.
It is generally admitted that no evidence
was produced at the examination that
could convict her. The States' case
seemed to be based on the theory that
nobody else could have committed the
murder, aud on some trifling discrepeu-
ciea oj L,zzie jaoraen s own a ccount ol
the affair. It is believed, however, that
the prosecution has held important evi
dence iu reserve.
Hie theory of the prosecution is that
Lizzie Borden was on bad terms with
Hot mother-in-law, and that this enmity,
with her knowledge that her father in
truded 10 change his will to favor Mrs.
Borden incited her to the double murder.
Perhaps something in Lizzie Borden's
manner has incited belief in her guilt.
She had always lived a quiet aud rather
reserved life, aud hadbeeu active mostly
in church aud Sunday School work, but
after the tragedy she showed a p henome-
nal coolness and elf-command iu every
action. She shed no tears, exhibited no
hysterics, aud took her examination on
the dreadful charges against her almo3t
( with indifference. Aside from this,
however, there seems to be nothing in
her conduct, and scarcely anything in
the facts, to cause her to be held guilty
I of so heinous a crime. There are many
things to render the theory of her guilt
I almost absurd. Yet the couuty aud
State prosecuting-officers, and a learned
trudge who was an intimate friend of
aer family, and shed tears on commit-
ting her for trial, believe her to be guilty.
The development of the evidence
will be watched with great-interest.
Attorney General Pillsbury has an-
nouueed that he will not appear in the
case his health will not permit and
i the State will be represented by District
Attorney Knowlton, of Bristol County,
timd District Attorney Moody, of Essex
County. The defeuse will be made by
LC. E. Jennings, of Fall River, ex-Gover-
nor George D. Robinson and Melvin O.
Adams, the two latter the greatest crimi
nal lawyers in the State.

The railway people will rectify all the
damage that has been done along the
scene of Pickett's charge.

ir. Bryant Tells How He and the Presi
dent Got bun Burned.
Ex-Health Commissioner Joseph D.
Bryant returned to-New York on Sunday
from his fishing trip with President
Cleveland. He spent most of the day
rubbing goose grease on his face, which
was terribly burned and from which the
skin was peeling in greac patches. "Yes, "
said he to a reporter, " the President, L.
Clarke Davis and myself have been rest
ing on the Chesapeake. It seems to me
I never felt such a scorching sun before.
It's a wonder I have any skin left. I
guess the President is as badly burned as
1 am. But I had a jolly time. I never
had more fun in any four days of my
life. We dressed. as we. pleased, and de
voted ourselves to rest, recreation and
fishing. We caught lots of fish. They
were principally drum fish. Some of
them weighed thirty or forty pounds
and it took skill and muscle to land
them. What did we do with them?
Well, some we ate and the others we
gave to the natives. I don't know how
many the President caught. He is a
mighty good fisherman. "
THE FAIR NOT COMPLETE.
Despite Commissioners' Announcement,
Much Is Yet to Be Done.
A Chicago dispatch says : Great efforts
are being made by the Fair authorities to
get people to come to Chicago now, on
the ground that this is the best time to
visit the Fair. The Executive Commis
pioners of various States were asked to
sign an address to the public declaring
that the fair is now in complete order,
and many of them, including' Mr. Far
quhar, of Pennsylvania, complied. This
address is wholly misleading. There is
a vast deal to be seen but the Fair is not
complete. A great deal of work has
been done in the last month but there is
a good deal yet to do.
A. New Postmaster for New York.
The President has appointed Charles
W. Dayton postmaster of New York
city. He is a well-known lawyer,with
an office in the Mills building. Ho is
-yet a comparatively young man, being
about 46 years of age. He lives at 13
Mount Morris avenue, a short distance
from Mayor Gilroy's home. He is of
Scotch descent. He is a member of Tap -many
Hall, and attended the Chiea o
Convention as an advocate of the uom -nation
of David B. Hill. He was, how
ever, formerly a-member of the County
Democracy, and a Cleveland man in 1881.
The appointment is looked upon as a
recognition of the regular or Tammany
Democratic organization in New York
city,
Mrs. Leslie's Adorer Disfigured.
After an exciting meeting between the.
Marquis De Leuville and Willie Wilde
in Covent Garden London, in which the
Marquis (once a persistent suitor for Sirs.
Frank Leslie's hand ) crowed over Willie's
misfortune in being sued by Mrs. Leslie
Wilde for divorce, De Leuville met with
a decided mishap. He had just re enter
ed his private hansom and driven off
excitedly, when his horse slipped and
pitched him overboard. The Marquis'
nose was broken and the horse kicked in
one of his ribs. He will recover, but
will be disfigured for life.
Fortune in a Statue.
The Montana silver statue of Justice
was unveiled at Chicago on Tuesday.
The lower part of the pedestal is of
ebony, and upon this is a block of pure
gold, two feet five inches square and
ten inches high, far more valuable from
a money point of view than the silver
figure itself. The gold pedestal repre
sents an expenditure of nearly $250,000,
and the silver in the statue only about
$75,000.
Tho Valkyrie is a Clipper.
Lord Dunraveu's yacht Valkyrie,
which is to come across the water to
contest for the America cup, and which
was beaten on her trial trip by the Prince
of Wales' new yacht Britannia, has
turned the tables on her competitor, aud
showed herself to be the fastest boat in
Eugland. English yachtsmen, however,
doubt he ability to beat the new Yankee
boats.
The Flea Plague Spreads.
The plague of fleas in Lancaster coun
ty, Pa., is spreading in spite of efforts
made to stamp it out. Dr. S. E. Weber,
who has been investigating the plague in
the northern part of the county, was
summoned to Washington for a confer
ence with Secretary of Agriculture Mor
ton and Professor Riley of the Entomo
logical Bureau. A new and energetic
effort will be made to stop it.
Cholera in France
Despite the denials of the French local
authorities, the Spanish consuls in France
continue to report the spread of cholera
epidemic at several ports. The Spanish
Government has ordered that all vessels
arriving from Marseilles be detained
seven days in quarantine and that ves
sels from other Mediterranean ports of
France be kept under observation for
three days.
Senator Hill on Silver,
Senator Hill, when seen at the New
Netherlands Hotel, New York, was
amused by the Washington dispatch
stating that he would lead the fight for
free silver in the Senate. The absurdity
of such a report, lie said, was apparent.
He declares that he is thoroughly in
favor -of the repeal of the Sherman law.
He had no opinion to express-about the
probability of a fight between the sil
ver men and the-Administration.
Heavy Crop of Strawberries.
Not for years has there been such a
ieavy crop of strawberries as there will
be this season in New Jersey. The straw
berry fields of South Jersey are a mas3 of
good fruit. The blackberry crop, how
ever, promises to be poor, owing to the
frost. The peach crop will be excellent
this season. There was no serious late
frost to injure the buds and the trees are
loaded with fruit. Raspberries and
huckleberries promise to be plentiful.
DR. BRIGGS SUSPENDED.
Tho Famous Theologian Barred Out ol
the Presbyterian Church.
Suspension from the ministry of the
Presbyterian Church was the sentence
pronounced in Washington on Rev. Dr.
Clnirles A. Briggs by the General Assem
bly. In addition, Union. Theological
Seminary, of New York, and Lane Theo
logical Seminary, of Cincinnati, are
practically excluded from the care of the
Presbyterian Church as long as they re
tain D"r. Briggs and Dr. Henry Preserved
Smith 'as professors, and maintain there
by the theological positions taken by
them. This is the outcome of the Gen
eral Assembly's deliberations on the
heresy question.
The action iu the case of Dr. Briggs
was not taken until the committee ap
pointed to formulate it had made one
last effort at conciliation by asking Dr.
Briggs whether he would abide by a reso
lution admonishing him for the delivery
of the inaugural address, and requesting
him to refrain from spreading the doc
trines which the Presbyterian Church,
through its General Assembly, has repu
diated. Dr. Briggs declined torenounce
his opinions or refuse to teach them. The
resolution of censure and expulsion was
then passed. By way of clinching the
matter, the General Assembly reiterated
the orthodox "deliverance" of the Gen
eral Assembly of last year as to the-in-spiration
and inerrancy of the Scriptures.
A protest against the action taken was
presented, signed by about 100 ministers
in attendance upon the Assembly.
Davltt'a Debts.
Michael Davitt, late M. P. for North
east Cork, was examined at Dublin in
the bankruptcy proceedings. Among
his assets is a debt of $2,000 due to him,
by the Gaelic Athletic Association, tho"
debt having been paid by Mr. Davitt to
save the members of theassociation,from
arrest for non-payment of a hotel bill in.
Philadelphia. .. The association J had.
promised Patrick Ford that they would
repay the bill, but failed to do so. ! Mr.
Davitt denied having rushed into bank
ruptcy iu order to hasten his return to
Parliament..- l
A Protectorate for Hawaii.
It is announced from Washington that
the reports sent in thus far by Mr. Blount
from Honolulu confirm the view that a
protectorate rather than annexation, is
most desirable in our future relations
with Hawaii. The present attitude of
the Administration appears to be one of
watchful non-interference, with a deter
mination that no other government shall
interfere in Hawaiian affairs. The pro
visional government will be recognized
as long as it maintains itself.
Cholera Dying: Out in Russia.
The official cholera statement of the
Minister of the Interior at St. Petersburg
is the most encouraging yet issued. It
states that the Volga district and the
government of the Ural and Usa are now
free from the disease, while in the pro
vince of Saratoff, which suffered th
most in 1892 (80,000 died), .there are only
a few isolated cases. The cholera still
lingers in the provinces, chiefly in the
neighborhood of- Elisabettol, but in spo
radic form.
The NewArmy Rifle.
The Ordnance Department of the army
is making preparations to begin the- man
ufacture of the hew army rifle at the
Springfield Armory, immediately! after
the beginning of the new fiscal, year,
The rifle is of very small calibre, inten
ded to use smokeless powder, and is 0
magazine arm. It is estimated that
within one year from July 1 next the
total output of the armory will be about
12,000 rifles. ,
Rhode Island's Muddle.
The Legislature muddle in Rhode Island
resulted in the adjournment of the Re
publican Senate, while the Democratic
House remained in session. No action
having been taken as to settling the-vexed
question of who shall occupy the State
offices, Governor Brown prorogued the
Legislature until the second Tuesday in
January, 1894. Meantime, he will hold
on to the office of Governor.
83,000,000 to the Indiana.
The accounting officers of the Treasury
has audited the accounts for the payment
to the Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians
of the $3,000,000 due them for the Chey
enne and Arapahoe lands ceded to the
government, and requisitions on the
United States Treasurer were approved
by the Secretary of the Interior, which
concludes all of the formalities necessary.
Coal Oil for Fuel.
It is stated that several large manufac
turing plants, including the Pennsylva
nia Steel Works at Steelton, Pa'., have
made a contract with the Crescent Oil
Pipe Line Company for 1,000 barrels of
crude petroleum a day. The price-fixed
is 70 cents a barrel. The oil will be used
for fuel.
Reading's Iiost Cash.
Colonel Farr, the expert employed ou
the city treasury books at Reading, Pa.,
has nearly completed his work and has
found the total deficit to be $14,484. The
suits to recover the amount of die short
age from the ex-Treasurer have not yet
been pushed to trial.
- An Italian Ambassador.
The State Department has been of
ficially notified of the elevation of the
Italian Legation at Washington to the
rank of an embassy, and that Baron de
Fava, present Minister, will soon present
his credentials as ambassador.
An Iceberg Mast'Hlgh Passed By.
The steamer Columbia arrived in New
York after a quick passage. When in
latitude 49.40, longitude 48.11, she passed
a large iceberge that towered high above
her maintop.
