DEFENSE HAS INNINGS IN
:> ■'■;/ BIGAMY CASE
Accused Tells of a Collision With a
Locomotive in Which He Was
Severely Injured — Consid. ; _ ;
! ers Himself Crazy.
In the trial of William A.. Ingram,
Charged with bigamy, but who insists
that he only married a woman, the
defense yesterday had Its innings, and
a strong effort was made by Ingram's
attorney to prove to the satisfaction
of the jury that his client was of un
sound mind, and consequently should
be held blameless for his twofold mat
rimonial adventure. ■
At the outset of yesterday's pro
bcedings Attorney Yager attempted to
prove that Charles O. Goodwin had
threatened to put his uncle behind the
bars for his experience with one too
many wives, but in this he failed.
I Mrs. Katherine Goodwin-Ingrain, who
figures as "wife No. 2," was recalled
to the. stand and was put through a
severe examination by General Yager.
The attorney made an effort to locate
- the turn of the road at which Mrs.
Goodwin-Ingram's love for her spouse
vanished, but in this he failed.
"I, want to see him put where he
belongs," was all that Mrs. Goodwin-
Ingram would say.
Attorney T. P. Dyer, in reply to a
question, declared that the defendant's
mind was unbalanced.
"He was desperate and wanted me
jSj;to collect some money for him from
V3js first wife. I considered him insane
\ d was glad to get rid of him," testl
lS|y tha witness.
\>%. quick succession a score or more
of witnesses from the village of Eagle
Hock testified that Ingrain's conduct
was most peculiar.
The defendant himself next took the
stand and told the jury his mind wan
dered at times from ordinary channela
He told of his collision with a loco
motive as far back as 1889. He declared
that he. lnadvertently collided with v
locomotive, whereby he was tossed hlgb
into the air.
Upon recovering tyn . equilibrium, In
gram testified, he was minus his
teeth, his - eyes rolled back into hi)
head, he was temporarily blind, one
.leg was broken,, shoulder blade
wrenched out of its customary place,
and severely injured in other partlcu*
lam too numerous to mention.
".Well, you have completed your re
pairs, haven't you?" asked the district
"No, sir," replied Ingram.
Aside from his testimony in relation
to his insane wanderings, Ingram faile.l
to testify to any other particular In
volved in the case.
Judge Waldo M. York of department
three of the sperior court gave some
testimony which was decidedly favor
able to the cause of the defendant. \
RUNAWAY TEAM COLLIDES -
WITH LUMBER WAGON
Driver and Pedestrians Have Narrow
Escape From Death as Result
. : of Accident
W. H. Hughes, a driver for the E. K.
Wood Lumber company, had a narrow
escape from death yesterday. A team
belonging to Jack Helnes, contractor,
and driven by A. Rodrlguiz, while run
ning away with a wagon loaded with
gravel, collided with the team driven
by : Hughes on Broadway near First
street. ' .
Hughes sat on the pole of the lum
ber wagon. The tongue of Helnes'
wagon rested on his lap, while a horse
was on either side of him. Had the
tongue struck him he would have been
run through. As It was, he received
several - severe bruises. Rodrlguiz,
driver^ of the runaway ' horses, pulled
his team around just In time to pre
vent the animals ' from crashing Into
a carriage occupied by two women.
TWICE ATTEMPTS HIS LIFE
Prisoner In the City Jail Swallows
. .. . Morphine , ..<■.
Six grains of morphine and a piece
of sharp glass were the Instruments
with | which G. A. Buckley, charged
with embezzlement, courted death yes
terday in the city jail. He swallowed
the drug and then- attempted to open
an artery In his wrist with the glass.
I'lie effort at suicide was so feeble,
however, that after a slight examina
tion In the receiving hospital he was
returned to his cell.
That the morphine did not produce
the result desired by Buckley Is due
to the fact that for twenty years he
has been addicted to Its constant use.
The quantity was too small to affect
him dangerously. 'He then broke the
bottle and with the edge of the glass
fragments endeavored to cut an artery
In his wrist. A prisoner observed this
act and called Jailer Shand. The house
surgeon examined Buckley and said he
was not In any danger.
l'liiiinb«rlulu'N Cough Mriuedy ■ the Heat
"In my opinion Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy Is the best made for colds,"
says Mrs. Cora Walker, of Portervllle,
California. There is no doubt about Ub
being the best. No other will cure a
cold so quickly. No other Uso sure a
preventive of pneumonia. No other is
•o: pleasant and safe to take. These
are good reasona why it should be pre
ferred •to any other. .The fact Is that
few people are satisfied with any other
after having once used this remedy. :

request he struck her In the eye.
Knollmlller was partial to dumplings
as a diet — apple or otherwise may never
be known— but when the dish did not
appear, ■ his wife asserts, he proceeded
to hurl the dishes against the wall.
According to the story told by the
plaintiff her husband's great falling
| "One gallon of wine, one bottle of
whisky and one bottle of port wine per
day" was his dally allowance, accord
ing to the testimony of his pretty
daughter, Maria. '..'/';.
That he would blow her head oft,
according to the witness" story, Is only
one of his milder threats.
Judge Conrey held that Knollmlller
had fallen from the water wagon, and
the decree was promptly granted,
which also gave the plaintiff the pos
session of the property and the custody
of the minor children. '"? "":!>■'
