All of,the Testimony is Now In, and !
Arguments Will bo Hoard
STRONG CIRCUMSTANTIAL CASE
Against Stevens, But Thero is Doubt
That Death Penalty "Will bo
The evidence in the murder trial at
St. Cialrsville is now all In, but a portion
of the evidence given by the accused
men will be reproduced this
morning for the purposes of the defense,
and then will follow the arguments of
counsel to the court and Jury summing
up tho evidence and the law.' Tho defense
occupied all of Saturday in presenting
testimony for their side of the
case, some of which was very disappointing.
But they did all they could
for their client?rather clients, for the
two are so closely Jinked together In all
the circumstances that the result of this
trial of Leonard Stevens will virtually
dispose of that of Barney Divine.
It would acarcely be proper to say
"that the culprits have utterly failed to
prove an alibi, but it Is not amiss to
state that it remains for the ablL' and
auroit Major I'euy and A. H. Mitchell,
counsel for the defense to produce reasonable
doubt-In the minds of the pubHo
that Leonard Stevens and Barney
Divine were not two of the parties very
neat to the Warrick home on the night
of the robbery and murder.
The closely woven train of circumstances
presented by the state was not
broken by the defense. Indeed tho
prosecution must have felt at the close
of all the testimony submitted in the
case that they had bullded better than
they knew; "With a carefully prepared
arrangement of detail, well supported
by testimony as tc the movements of
Leonard Stevens and Barney Divine
Immediately preceding and following the
crime, Proae.cutlng Attorney Armstrong
and his co-counsel, Judge J. B. Drlggs,
felt that the chain of circumstantial
evidence was surely strong enough to
base a reasonable case upon, but they
could not know what the defense had
in store until that side had prepared
their case. It came, but not with the
posltivenoss and credibility that might
havo been expccted to sustain the claim
of absence from the vicinity of that
Sow It Hinges.
The Intelligencer covered the Important
part of the entire case early. It
hinges upon the fact that no one saw
the accused at the "Warrick home or in
it. No one saw the fatal shot fired.
The dead boy liad made an expression
as if he knew the thieves and robbers,
and the counsel for the defense must
makP the most of these facts to produce
doubt enough to save their clients from
some degree of punishment and they
can be relied upon to use every honorable
effort In that direction. But the
case of the state has been well sustained
by circumstantial evidence, under
the skillful guidance of the prosecuting
attorney and his assistant, and they
are strengthened in the belief that they
are light, strong in their knowledge of
the law and able in advocacy of its
enforcement, so that all the argument
will x.c followed closely by spbetators as
Harney Devine's Testimony.
On Saturday morning Barney Divine
was put on the stand by thG state for
further crozs examination. He was
asked simply regarding what he had
testified to at the preliminary hearing
In Barnesvllle. There wore quite a
number of discrepancies as to time,
principally, in his testimony given on
the two occasions, he explaining them
by saying that he was mistaken at that
Mrs. Divine, the mother of Barney
and grandmother of the defendant, who
lives in Zatwsvillc, and is sixty-five
years of age, was next called and her
testimony was to the fact that Barney
Divine came to Zanesvllle on the Monday
morning after the murder, between
5 and half past 5; that he came alone
aud Leonard did not come with him.
Leonard came home shortly after that
but she could not fix the time.
Miss Itose Divine, sister of Barney
and aunt of Leonard, dining room girl
In Palace hotel, Zanesvllle, corroborated
her mother. . ;,
Miss Jennie Taylor, telegraph operator,
Zanesvllle, sister of Matt Taylor,
the third man supposed to be implicated
in this murder, described her brother's
appearance, claiming he was light comnlnrfnrt
U'ltll PMiv nvra llrrtif hnln nml
weighed about ICO pounds. The testimony
of Miss Marka was to the effect
that the man supposed to be Taylor was
very dark, oo dark io fact, that she
thought there might be negro blood In
Ho Wa3 IMsappointing.
John Rutter, night watchman at the
Barnesville Glns3 Worhs, called by the
defense, was a disappointment, lie
said that to tho best of his knowledge
these men did not sleep in the glass
house Saturday night of tho murder, as
Alex Horron, a tenser In the Barnesvllle
glafls works, saw tiiree parties In
tho gluas house Sunday monilng, xntd
stated, they came Jn there to wash
Could not Identify defendants as the
David M. "Wilson, employe of the
Barnesvilio Glass Works, did not recollect
of the men.being there.
John E. Trunk, called by defense to
show defendant got a bucket from hi in
to get beer In about the 7th of April,
but witness claimed It was not at that
time, but long afterwords.
Alexander Davis, Uvea flvo miles and
a half west of Somerton, saw two
strangers on tho morning after tlie
muirti'r crossing tho fields near hl?
house; nn cross examination said he did
not know whether they wero afterwards
arrested or not.
Mian Kato Sohafor, clerk In her
father'* halcry, UarnOiivlllo, sold bread
Sunday morning about 7 o'clock to a
strajige roan, supposed to have been
John C. Miller, master teaser at the
Barnesvillo Glass Works, stated trumps
were often In the glass works, anil slept
there at nights, but did not think these
men were there on the night claimed.
Peter Butler lives near Temperancevllle,
saw two tramps near his place, a
quarter of a mile away; might have
been his neighbors.
Samuel Strirbuck, called l>y defense to
show burglaries in neighborhood of
So met ton; evidence ruled out; defendant
I" Clyde Bulger, Jailor, former constable
of Warren township.' arrested two men
I the afternoon preceding the murder,
named Carter. Their statements ruled
out by the court.
James 'Cassella, Barnoaville, testified
regarding lath in lumber yard of Rogers,
and how tied, the state claiming
some of the twine used in tying the
women the night of the murder, came
from the lumber yard. Unimportant
savo to show that there was other
Jesse Warrick, father of the murdered
boy, testified that old Mrs. Warrick
was not expecting to receive any money.
Rqh3 Mearibr, examined on Wednesday,
left St. Clulrsville against express
orders of the court. Returned Saturday
intoxicated. He testified he was put in
jail at Cambridge for the purpose of
pumping- Stevens. He was sent to Jail
by order of the court for contempt.
Judge Hollingsworth stating that he
would not permit the orders of the
court to be disregarded by witnesses or
Frank Broom, Zanesville, friend of
Divine and Stevens,testified to making
the trip to Dakota with Stevens. On
cross examination acknowlcged to having
been in the work house, and when
asked if he had ever been convicted of
a crime refused to answer.
Nellie Marka, sister of Ada Marka,
who was in the Warrick residence the
night of the murder, called by defense
to contradict statements made by her
sister. Attempt failed.
A Reporter's Evidence.
W. T. Evans, reporter for the Barnesville
Whetstone, stated Miss Marka had
told hlrn on the day alter the murder
that the robbers when old Mrs. Warrlclcsaid
tothemthut she would not care
if they had not killed her boy, replied:
"He 1b not your boy, we know whose
boy he is." That she also said to him
that she believed he recognized them,
also that she believed one of the men
had colored blood in his veins.
Major E. T. Petty, one of the counsel
for the defuse, testified to having secured
the twine shown to the witness
Blnch,'in Rogers' lumber yard.'
The glassworkcrs who testified during
the morning session were recalled to
show that thecd- men might possibly
have slept in th<* glass house oa the
Saturday night, but they said they did
not believe they did.
Defendant was called and was on the
stand the remainder of the afternoon;
his story was almost the same as that
of Divine, contradictory of that given
at preliminary hearing.
At 3 o'clock the defense rested, with
the understanding that on Monday they
were to have the right to call Stenographer
Lynch, who reported the preliminary
Prosecuting Attorney Hunter S. Armstrong
will open the argument for the
state and be followed by Major E. T.
Petty, for the defense. Then will come
J. D. Drlggs for tho state and A. H.
Mitchell for the defense. The time for
argument Is not limited, but in all probability
will end to-day in time for Judge
J. W. Holllngsworth to deliver his
charge and the case go Into the keeping
of the jury. What the verdict will be
is anxiously awaited in all parts of Belmont
county. Those who have heard
the testimony express the opinion that
a strong circumstantial case has been
made, and yet there is general doubt
that the death penalty will be inflicted.
