Ths Fourth Day of ihe/ Isle of
• : Wight Trial.
IKTEREST ON THE INCREASt
Sheriff Edwards the First Witness- Yes :
terday.
GILMGAX'S COXFESSIOX TO HI7JI.
The Court Admits It— The Prisoner's
Relations With Miss Turner— Their
Meeting on tlie Niglit of tlie KiH-
ISLE OF WIGHT COURTHOUSE, VA,
June B.— (Special.)— The fourth day's trial
of A. C Gilligan resulted in the.introduc
tion of evidence which was unfavorable
to the defendant. As the case proceeds
the crowd grows larger, and the y interest
increases each day.
The first witness called was B. D. Ed
wards, Sheriff of Surry county, to whom .
Gilligan ' was taken after, he had surren
dered himself to Robert Ferguson.
. Mr. Edv/ards's testimony was the'sen
sation of the day. He "stated that the
confession made to him by Gilligan was
made while he was conveying the prison
er from his residence to Scotland Wharf.
Counsel lor defence objected to parts
of his confession being introduced, but
the Court ruled that, the whole of it was
admissible, to which counsel for defence
exeePted, both as to the question and to
the answer.
The jury were taken out while counsel
argued this question;
PRISONER'S CONFESSION.
Mr. Edwards stated that Gilligan said
in. his confession that he, shot Turner be
cause Turner had a gun aimed at him;
that he went to the Turner house at the
solicitation of Miss Turner; that " when
he got there Miss Turner and her mother
drove up; that Miss Isabella said, after
recognizing him, "Hello. Kick,, you -have '
come." and told him that she would meet
him at the stable; that he explained to
her the condition that he was in, especial
ly in regard, to shoes; that Miss Isabella
told him she would put on her gunr boots
and would meet him at the stable." Pris
oner said** Miss Turner soon cams from
the house with a small :'J«impV and met
him at' the stable, after she had whistled
and notified him that she was coming;
that he answered her whistle, and 'that
he had a shotgun lying across Jiis' foot
when Miss Turner met him. He sain
Miss Turner had her arm around- his
treCl^ifruMi^haJ- niS i :eft"^uriK" ; itriTUi!d 1
Miss .Turner's waist"; that he heard a
cracking on the snow, like some one
walking towards .him; that he looked up
and saw C. B. Turner with a gun raised
and pointed in his direction. Gilligan
stated that he said he would have to run.
but that Miss Turne: held him, and he
snatched up his gun and fired; that he
said .to Miss Turner he wished to GoS
that he had run, and that Miss Turner
Said, "You have shot and killed father."-
Neither of them, prisoner said, tried, to
find out the condition of the wounded
man. He told Miss Turner that she was'
the cause of and responsible for the kill
ing of the father.
SENSATIONAL QUESTION. . «
At this point Mr. Holland, who was con
ducting the prosecution's cross-examina
tion,-asked the witness:
"Did Gilligan state to you what else
took place at or near the' tree when she
met him that night? If he did, please
.state everything he said."
This Question was objected to by the
defence, and the jury was taken but. The
defence claimed that the question and an
swer-would impugn the character of a
lady whom they did not care to impugn;
that it was immaterial unless that knowl
edge had come to the late C. 13. Turner,
and he feared violence and insult to his
daughter.
The ". Commonwealth's representatives
held that the confession -should be given
in full; that they would be the last per
sons to attempt to wound the feelings of
any, lady, and that if they had to ask Miss
Turner, questions which would cause
her to blush and weep with .shame, she
would understand that no matter how
repugnant to them it was their, duty to
do so. They claimed that A. / C Gilfigan
was attempting to visit his sins! upon
the head of an innocent lady." ;■■•■■•■
The Court ruled that the question was a
proper one, and the witness went on to
state what Gilligan insinuated were the
relations between Miss Turner and- him
self.
The cross-examination of ,the witVess
elicited.no new facts.
-THE -WOUND. :
Drs. W. E. Warde and -W. D. Turner
were placed on the stand. : Their testi
mony., went "to prove the wound inflicted
upon Mr. Turner, and they were: used as
experts to testify how the wounds were
inflicted and as to the position of the per
son inflicted the wounds.
Sheriff ' Edwards was used as thu lay.
figure, and the wound was minutely and
thoroughly explained , by the two physi
cians. ■ .'■ '-."..■■■'. _
Judge Hinton procured a- gun and en
deavored to demonstrate ;to the jury that
the wound inflicted by the person .who
killed C. .B. Turner was fired in direct
line by the firer of the gun ; but- the physi
cian testified that the bulk :of the, shot
struck Turner 'on the. right side, and tore
away a 'part of the larynx, and that' a
man receiving a wound like the one of
Turner's:' would have: died at once, and
that while the shooter of the; gun. might
have been, in the line of observation, he
could not have identified the person who
fired the shot. l '-..-' r
They both testified that the shot was
fired at close range.
Mr. -Holland produced a. gun., and by
using himself and -Colonel /Boykin- as
figures, endeavored to demonstrate to the
jury- that the shot which, killed -C.' B.
Turner, was" fired by .some" person whom
the deceased did not "sec. --/ - - .
■ ' A THRKAT PROVED. ", : '
After the testimony of Dr. Turner, W.
JP.v Wilson, a merchant of Fergusson's
Wharf, introduced; // He was asked'
by" Colonel Boykin to state\if, in-, the

Elliott Thomas testifVed/ to lending- a
loaded. gun to/A; C." Gilligan on the' night
of December 27th, and/said Gilligan ex
plained that he wanted;' the 'gun/ to .go
hunting with the next morning;: that ;both:
barrels of the gun were loaded when'Gil
ligan. got .'it; :that'.:he (Gilligan) got the
gun at" 6 P. M.;- that he/came back/at
8 P. M.; that one barreUTof the gun .had
been fired; that when; Giligaii returned
to "his- house he (Gilligan)/. offered him: 55
to take him to' the .residence of ; his (Gil
ligan's) brother-in-law; that the gun.when
returned had only one. barrel: loaded; and
that his son and himself knew this to be
a fact.
MAN' WHO GAVE THE ALARM:
David .Cotton, the first/ colored witness,
was next brought on. the. stand. Cotton
was the man who, according, to." the" testi
mony. of other witnesses, .;had sounded -the
alarm on the night of /the. killing of old
man Turner. : -- ■ ,/. - -'■
• His testimony was given in a straight
forward mxmner. ■ Notwithstanding the
cross-examination, which was ' very se
vere, he was not contradicted in any
material point.- . . /
Cotton lived in the barn of C. B. Turn
er. He was awakened on December "7tri
by a. message from the" Turners, who
asked him to assist theiri : : in serving sup
per. / That was at G"P.;M. When he-got
to. Turner's house. Miss; Isabella', Turner
sent him to see if her horse was blanket
ed. All the Turner family- had •.supper,
with the exception' of CJ B. Turner,- and
witness was sent- by Mrs. Turner to Mr.
Crocker's to see if Mr. Turner was there.
He carried ! a note, and: came back and
told Mrs. Turner that'vMr. Turner 'was
not at Crocker's, and /that Mr. Crocker
was coming crer at. once. Mrs. Turner
said something had happened, and gave
witness a lamp. and asked, him to go out
to the stable. He foujid everything all
right at the stable, but later found the
body of Mr. Turner in /the lot. Mrs.
Turned had said, beforcChe tookthe'lamp,'
"Lord have mercy upon, me; something,
has happened to Mr. .Turner." . When' he
had passed the stable He/walked upon the
body of Turner. Miss --Isabella then sent
him. after friends.
Interest centres now upon the question
whether Gilligan will': deny the state
ment given by SheriSf Edwards',' of Siirry,
of his confession, and 'will say that he
was just boasting whrn-jhe made it that
way to ' Edwards. Th?,- .he will v go on the
-3tnrrv.l"."is"/a.*iliriiicSU '.•■'by - 'iiisfcouri.sei^'Ytisor
that he will claim that certain state
ments made, by him were'- made under
pressure, and at a time when he was in
no condition to make iheml
he fact that Miss Turner: allowed her
self to be talked -to on the road home
on yesterday is a source of annoyance to
the prosecution; who guarded her with a
watchful eye.
Phe and her mother will be called the
first thing in the morning, and- the largest
crowd of the week is expected here.
The sole subject of. discussion to-night
is the stand Gilligan will take in regard to
the confession. Will he deny" it or will
he, as he/ has claimed that; he will Go,
not refute any charge made by-Miss-Tur
ner when she goes on the stand. : The
county, people are anxiously waiting the
outcome of the testimony of; Miss Tur
ner. . / / .
From rumors received to-night it is
feared . that thft friends of Gilligan are
only waiting the outcome of the testi
mony., and if it is against him, an effort
will, be made to release .him-; from jail.
Such information having reached / the
Sheriff, proper precautions will be used
to prevent the attempting of a rescue.
READY. TO OBEY.
Gilligan complained this evening that
he was bothered by people who -.went on
the outside" of his cell and begged him
to.. confess. He claimed ...that i;h<>'" reco'g-'
nized. the/ voice of.: one of the Turner

WASHINGTON, June S.— The following
cablegram was received at" the Navy De
partment this .morning . from Admiral
Kempff, on- board, the Newark, off .' the
Taku forts:
"Tong Ku; June B.— Battle yesterday-be
tween :Chinese and 'Boxers near Tien
Tsin. Large number; of Boxers expected
to reach Tien Tsin to-morrow.
"KEMPFF."
Minister Conger, at Pekin. has also* been
heard ;from to-day. His message to the
State: Department said .there.was no- im
provement in the situation, and he jsked
for instructions. .-. ■
Secretary .Hay took the message to/the
Cabinet, meeting, where\.the answer will
be.lramed. The State Department is steud
fastly pursuing the line of : policy, laid
down at the, beginning of this. Boxer trou
ble. O f avoiding any interference with
Chinese internal affairs, except in -such
measure as may be absolutely necessary
for. the protection of- American life, and
property there. . . •
AYE WANT NO EXTANGLEJIEXTS.
-Especially is it. desired' to avoid com
mitment to the policies of any of the
European Powers, -which, might involve
the /United Slates in trouble.
Therefore.. notwithstanding the ominous
news conveyed in AdmiralKempffs tele
gram, it seems entirely probable" that
Minister Conger -will be directed" to stick
to the same line, of policy -which he has
pursued up :to this time. '
•It is not to .be understood by "this that
the United '. States Government is ':■■ desi
rous of .avoiding any proper measure of
responsibility, "and the -State Department
officials are. careful to point- "out that
.while retaining our independence of ac
tion, our;government'is ivaliy acting-con
currently with.the European'Governmehts
respecting, this: Boxer -agitation; Thus,
at Taku. Admiral .Kempff is acting: in a
manner, similar to that of the comman
ders of the foreign navy there assembled,
although his orders are subject to the
tl I;P/£ya.l:.o^^I ;P/£ya.l:.o^^o i^e. tii^_ f^ ii _ u> ,, c^. *--.:,*£.
'■ FOREIGN^ FORCKS cT^o'pERATING^
At Tien Tsin, forty miles up the river
which the Admiral expects to be attacked
to-morrow, the "foreign 'naval commands
are acting together. !It is said . that in
case of an emergency involving jeopardy
to the lives -of foreigners, the United
States marines iit Tien Tsin might even
be directed in their general movement
by the • senior officer ashore, although
that officer might happen to tie a German,
a Russian, a Frenchman, nr an English
man. This temporary subordination' ; of
authority might be brought about. by
facts which' exist solely through military
exigencies. The expectation being thai
Tien Tsin' .is to be attacked by a .vast
horde of Boxers, it is, entirely conceivable,
according to military practice, that order,
life, and property in the' city . can be
maintained', only by .the assumption?- of
authority by. one competent military au
thority, while many captains might mean
defeat. - /•■" ';-.. .
TIEN. TSIN. PROBABLY' SAFE.,
The naval' officers 'Ihere are confident
that Tien Tsin proper is not in particular
danger. The gunboat Helena will soon
have the town under her guns. .and there
are believed to be three foreign waiships
in' position to co-operate. '
Almost the only subject before the Cab
inet meeting to-day was the Chinese sit
uation. Secretary Hay read' a cablegram
from Minister Conger, at Pekin, in
which he "said there % was . no -im
provement; in the situation, and: asked for
instructions. Secretary Hay stated
after the meeting that a reply. Would be
sent to-. Mr. Conger, substantially reaf
firming the one sent a day or two ago,
.to; the effect that .he will be. expected
to -do whatever !• is necessary to : protect
the. lives" of Americans and their pro
perty, and to maintain the dignity of this
government. -He Svill -be. instructed ; to
form no alliance with any government. .
WILL CALL ON THE EMPRESS."
It"is understood here that the' represen
tatives of the Powers in Pekin will- cal!
in a body on the Dowager Empress, and
represent the necessity :of . her taking
vigorous action to suppress the, Boxers.
It is assumed -that Mr.: Conger willjoin
the : other representatives. .
It is"! understood here that telegraphic,
communication is interrupted .between
Pekin and Taku. a fact which will, prove
embarrassing to Minister • Conger. ' should
he- find 't necessary, to cair on Admiral
Kempff for reinforcements.
