no way of getting thu plank down, nml I
told til it. If hu would siuy till morning,
hu could have my wagon to taku ihu

Hu stayed all night and next morning he

looked red, and nothing looked natural
except from hl forehead up; that looked
like llesh; Wadu said blood was running
out ol his mouth, and he put a wet rag
over It to keep thu blood from
ritniilug out and soiling Ids clothes. Af
ter siiptN'r 1 had a conversation with Mr.
Wade about the death of Uelany; hu said
the day bclore lie tiled, hu was complain
ing of being chilly; they were at work
and he tried togethlin logo to Ihu hou-e;
I think hu said hu did go to tin; hou-e, to
the best of my recollection) won't he cer

he was complaining of his throat
being sore; Mr. Wadu said be made a
gargle of something (don't recollect what
It was) ami tried to gel him to gar-el hi
throat with it; he ald he gave him a
do-t; of pills sometime tint night, don't
recoil 1 'i what time he a.'iid It wa-; next
morning, sometime, hu said Oelany
wa groaning terribly ami that
hu got up and 111. tile a lire;
he "aid Mr. I'el.uiy got up then mid came
In to the lire; that he (Wad -) u-ked him If
he wanted a doctor or wanted him to go
alter bl' step-mother: he said no that be
did not think he waa that bad oil'. Wadu
aid hu went out that morning to hU
work and did not come In until Mr. Rob
erts called him to mine to thu hou-e. llu
said when became to thu house. Mr. Ue
lany wa gel ting up out of ImsI aud putting

up the cup thaltbegorgel was made in lor
him thu night before, like as If he was
going to gorgle bis throat, but bclore
he got any of it In hl mouth. Wade said,
he saw he was dying and tell back In the
chair, aud he caught him in his arms and
he died there In the chair and hi his aniH.
Thi wa about thu amount of the con
versation concerning his death; I under
ton 1 liolx rts to sav that Delany died in
the lied; be did not -ay that he died in the
bed, hut that was what 1 concluded In nn
what hu said; he did not say what room
he (l.) was In. This took place in Alex
ander county and State ot Illinois. After
I), was buried, I had a conversation with
Wade; I was at Mr. llnn-ackcr's about
two weeks after I), was buried. Mr.
Wade came to Mr. H.'s while I was
there; he said he wanted to -peak to mu
anil Mr. II. about something Mr. Mul
eahv h id told h.ur, he said that Mr. Mul
ed!-had told him that It was reported
that be had killed Delany or that he (l)e-1
lany) was murdered; I told hhn that that
was thu report which I had heard loo,
aud that I wa- going, .he Sunday before,
to tell him aliout it, but that 1 wa-unwell
and could Hot go; that 1 thought
If hu wa- innocent ol It, hu ought to
know It and havu a chance to clear him
self of II; hu took me oil' to one
side aud we had a conversation
about il and hu aked me wiiat I
thought he ought to do about It;
I told him that If it was a ea-e of mine.
I would go and have him lakeii up aud
examined by a doet-r. He said that It
would eost I1I111 something In have a doc
tor t examine lilui aud he did not like to
pay nut anything fur nothing. lie said
that he knew in rea-ou how the thing
started; Ihat hu had some enemies down
there who were trying to break til 111 up;
that he kin-w the ruisou that they had
Marted the report. I (old hhn that If
there weiu enemies enough down there
lo iart that report, there were enough to
come belore the grand Jury I fere at the
next term of court ami 11 tu I a bill against
hhn; that It would be cheaper for hhn to
pay a doctor to examine him than to pay
a lawyer here to gut rid of an Indict
ment. Then hu asked me If I would go
with hhn to help taku him 1 told him
I would. Then hu said, "I will bu at
your house, soon in thu morning' and for
mu to stay there until he came. Hu said
I will go and get I.awreucu and wu will
go and take him up. llu went oil and
that was the last I saw him until the day
we arrested him. 1 won't bu positive
wh o It was that spoku of It; hut it was
said that Uelauy had it watch that be
longed to his father In his I lie time that
hu wanted buried with hhn.
Next morning Wadu and I were in tho
kitchen went III to get somu walor, and
Mrs. Kills camu hi aud asked Mr. Wadu
for thu watch, and Mr. H'mlo pulled thu
watch out of his pocket aud gavu It to
her and said hu had "liked to havu tor
gotten It." I was talking with Mr. Wadu
alter hu was arrested; alter hu had been
brought across thu schute; Mr. Irvlu ut

Dr. Lawrence sworn : I assisted In ex
amining the body of the deceased 011 last
Saturday, in company with Drs. Sullivan
aud Davis; I am a doctor; have practked
near nineteen years; ill practice; we
found a contused wound upon thu hit
side of the head, and one upon the right
posterior to thu right; did not measure
the wound on the left; the wound was
two inches and a half in diameter as near
as I could Judge; the wound 011 the right
was, a-near as 1 can tell, near the same

is owing to a failure of the heart lo send
blood to the brain; nil other parts were hi
a healthy condition, except the spleen;
hi-death was caused by concu-slou ot
the brain, in my opinion; I can't state
po-llively; to the best ot my knowledge.
there would certainly be some violence lo

character of thu w.iinul- I cannot slate
that violence would hu necessary to eati-c
such wiuiid; they were cau-ed by some
blunt iustriiiiijut: there was 110 break in
Cross-examined : Hu wa in a wood
en collln ; nothing wa under hi head
thu wounds could havu been produced by
bringing hhn over a rough road; I think
hauling him overt) rough road ten imio
would produce such bruises as the-u; thu
skull was not JracUiivd ; thu scalp was
not broken ; If a person was struck upon
the head with a blunt instrument, thu el
feels will bu upon the oppo'situ sidu of thu
brain ; there was no blood upon thu brain
at all ; a person dying ot heart dUcu-c
thu brain fteiiuently presents a bloodlc-i
condition ; these wounds were not of such
u nature as to cause death.
Iie-dlrect: Thu wounds wcro In my
opinion produced befuru death, for these
rea-ons: from thu torcu ot ttie Heart send
lug the blood through thu arteries Into the
can arv system ; uruigmg nun over
the roail spoken of would bo likely
produce wounds upon thu hack of his
head. Thu dlll'i'ieuce between a wound
made before deal li and onu madu after
would lie, hi 0110 made befuru the blood
would bo forced Into thu blood-vessels; af
ter death, unless tho blood Is coagulated,
It will remain theru after death. If a
wound Is made after death there would
bu no swelling and effusion.
Ur. Sullivan sworn (direct): I have
practloid since April, 1872. 1 nsslated In
thu post mortem examination. I found
two contused wounds ; one was posterior
of thu Kit side that was thu greater.
The other was near the llrst; thoro was
no wound on the right. The body np-1
pen red us though somu one hit hhn in thu
pit ot thu stomach, and hu tell and bit his
head on thu Iloor. Thu reaon for think
ing that hu was hit In thu stomach Is be
cause of the black and blue from thu ni-
plu down. If hu had fallen
upon a Held it would havu
caused a lacerated wound. Thu wounds
may havu been canted hy a blunt Instru
ment, hut not sulllclcut to cause death.
I examined thu heart, and found It void
ol blood ; I think it wa cau-ed hy a hit
In the stomach; the brain was blanched,
with no blood in it.
Cross-examined: Wounds on the
head did not produce death.
Thomas Kills sworn : I don't know
anything about it, except that a darkey
came to my house and told me Delany
was dead, and said Wadu had sent hhn;
met Wadu going to Foster'; it was some
time In February; don't recollect the day

the corpse looked ut that night; myself
md II. Hunaeker opened thu collln; I
think the collln wa nailed; we cut the

The heavy rains of tho latter part of
last week interfered considerably with
thu movement of grain and hay; tills,
combined with light receipts, makes our
