The Pillow murder trial was resumed
In the circuit court yesterday morning,
all the counsel in tbe case being present,
The prisoner, pillow. Is accompanied In
ooiirt by bis iuuthr, a woman apparent
ly foiirty tlv or fifty years of age, and
)y Mi. 0. Green ley who seems to take a
.treat Interna In Pillow's defense.
Julian Pillow, the prisoner, Is not
over twenty one years of age. lie is
about five feet seven fnchrs high, nd
will weigh about one hundred and titty
pound-. Uu fiat light gray eje, rid
hair an'l rosy complexion. From his
appearance and behavior in court ll is
evident that he either dot s not ruliz" the
gravity of his aituatlon, or that he haa
an abiding lallb that bis punUbmeut will
not be severe.
Tbe first of the testimony In tbe caso
was taken yesterday, and although a
number ot witnesses were examined, we
did not take their evidence, believing that
tbe testimony of Mr. George Sturtevnnt,
tbe principal witness for tho prosecution,
would be sufficient to revial the parti
culars of the murder. Mr. S. was
within a few feet of tbe parties when the
fatal shot was fired. He Is a young man
probably twenty-live years of ao, and
gave his evidence in a straight forward
and intelligent manner. Mr. S. was on
tbe stand for several hours and stpod thu
rigid cross-examination to which be was
subjected by Mr. Linegar without devi
ation or contradiction.
I live in Missouri, near Price's Landing,
at present, i uveu in mii county uuuuy
all ot last summer, and have liveu In Una
state tor ten vers. I have been acuuaiut
ed with Julian Pillow tor teu or eleven
years, and 1 knew Coleman lor uboul two
years beloru his death. 1 was present at

I saw the deibudant in the school house

I sat on tue right side ot the church on

went in; the bouse I believe has but one
door; the stove was near thu center
of the house ; 1 don't know bow many
seats there are In'the house. Here the
witness was shown a diagram of the
school house, aud went ou to explain the
position of the parties wnilu in the

was fired, aud Coleman said he wan tliot ,
he said " Jule Pillow shot me ;" 1
asked hi m where lie was shot and he
said about the kidneys ; when Colemati

Coleman was just across the road, about
fire feet from Wade's wagon ; Mr. Wade
was aoout tils nodes' heads wbeu the
shot was fired ; who was next closest 1
don't know unless It wil Mr. Wade or
Andy Chapman ; the tiring of the pistol
did not scare tho horses; It was ot
mere than nan a minute, or as soon as
they could, that Wade and Chapman
came up alter the shot was
fired; 1 took bold ot Coleman; I did not
bear Pillow and Coleman speak alter tho
meeting broke up; I think Coleman was
heavier than Pillow, though not so
tall; tbe shooting occurred In Alexander
county, state of lllinoit-; alter the shoot
ing I took bold of Coleman bat did not
find any weapons on him; Coleman went
to , Berry's wagon, and 1 went to
get" Mr. rival's lantern to examine him,
and Mr. Ryal deputized me to take
charge of Pillow, while he (Ryal) took
chargo ot Coleman; after Ryal came
back to mo and took cnarga or riiiow, I
go Into the wagon w ith Coleman, and
took him on. my knees and held him; he
was taken homo In Berry's wagon; I
think Pillow went in Kinght's wagon; I
don't know whether deceased was search
ed alter getting home; I helped to take
off his clothes nnd put him to bed, and
I then went atter tne uoctor.
Several other witnesses were examined
tor tbe prosecution, among them Mr.
George Ryal, the constable who arrested
Elllow after the shooting. Mr. Rysl
testified to finding a rcyolver on Pillow
with all tbe chambers loaded except one,
About three o'clock the prosecution
rested their case, and evidence for the
detense was commenced. . The case will
undoubtedly continue through to-day,
and It la quite probable that It may not
be given to the Jury before Monday,.
