GOTHA'S FATAL EVIDENCE

THE STATE RESTS ITS 'CASE

Nnek, Feeling CoufldciitI'liat the
Case Against Thurii Is Strong;
Enough She May Itebut Thorn'.
Evidence if lie Testifies.
New York, Nov. 26. Ths prosecution
rested its case against Martin Thorn this
afternoon. The announcement to this
eifert made by District Attorney l'ouugs
came as a great surpririe. Mrs. Nack did
it t testify, and whtle thin hnd been fore
bliadewed, the general impression wai that
she notild be called at, the last moiuniit.
Neither was Clnrk, a former cellmate of
Thoin, to whom he is alleged to have madn
a confession, put upon the sUind.
lhe btiength of the cube, Mr. Howe,
Thorn's counsel, has been building up,
was based on the supposition that Mis.
Nack would tell her story to the Jury
His attack was to be centcied against
her, with a -icw to weakening the State's
case by a successful assault upon its star
witness, Mrs. Nack. The prosecution
realized this, but hesitated. At the last
moment upon the advice, it is said, of
Dlstnet Attorney Olcott, it w.u decided
that ner testimony was In no manrei
essentia! to the completion of the chain
and that the State Would be--stionger with
As soon as District Attorney Yo jug's
announcement that the State rested vas
made Mr- Howe anked for time to ar
range his defense, In view of Mrs. Nuck's
no:i appearance Jt.stlce .Maddox there
forendjourned court until Monday. But Mrs.
Nack may still be called. Mr. Howe has
stated positively that Thorn will take tbe
stand, and it Is surmised that the State will
use Mrh. Nnck in rebuttal oT his evidence.
The principal witness today was John
Golha,he burber to whom Thorn confessed
nnd who, in turn, put the police on Thorn's
tra'l. He gae his testimony In a calm,
btraightrorward maimer. A. number of
witnesses gave testimony respecting Thorn"
movenentB after the murder, and showed
that he hnd laid himself open to suspicion
by his actions and talk.
Then Gotha, the prosecution's mainstay.
Jit thenhsence or Mrs. Nack, took the sla-.d.
"With lint comparatively few questions from
the lawyer?, he told Usi.torv. He had
kiiuwn Thorn nnd puhlenpuppu and ATrs.
Nad. Thorn was ills friend and made
hlmtheconfldantorhls luvV affairs. Thorn

going to use that on Guldeimuppe the first
chance I get." In May', at a Daseball
game. Thorn had drawn a dagger tevpn
inches long nnd said: "How would you
liken Jab from that? That's fjr OuUlen-bt-ppc"
wit the niglit of Junn 21 Thorn, had tojd
the witness at Makiney'a Hotel, where tney
both weri htopping, that he had routed a
cottage iu Woodslde for $15 a month.
Tney were all going to move there soon, he
said. On the night of the murder, when
Gotha got back to the hqtel from work lie
found Thorn in bed, and jr,horn told him he
wn3 very tired bepause. Ije, had been out all
day with Mrs Nne'k'tTteyjtiiess told of
Thorn'" coimugou jdly.Otlieb lrbershop
m Harlem, where "Wijjiess worked. He
sat in the barber's chair, and while the
latter cut his hair asked him to meet him
Gotha said he was afraid because he
knew- the police want,ed Thorn, but he
flnullj consented. They met at a saloon
and Gotha asked Thorn if he hud killed
Gnldeiisuppe. At first Thorn denied it
an.; then he said yesI dhl doit."
Trom this point on. Gotna's uarratlvc
was almost identical with that of Mrs.
Nack. He lepeated with some dramatic
foif'e Thorn's story of how; he and the
woman had planned to lure the hath
rubber to his death, of how he went
ahead aud laid in wait behind an up
stalls door, of how kojJtlred his pibtol
several times to make sure that It would
work, aud then of how Guldensuppe came
stumbling up the fetairs alone, to be shot
In the back of the head as Thorn crept
out from his ambush, while the woman
Mood below In the garden.
Gotha did not spare he brutal bloodi
ness of the deed. He repeated even how
Thorn had said his victim snored as he
lay in the bath tub, about to be dis
membered. The story of all the ghastly
work of concealment of the crime was
repeated as It came from the prisoner's
lips, and still Thorn sat there, coolly, only
tapping the floor with his foot. Gojha
said that Thorn asked him to meet "hnn
the next night, and he promised to do to.
He kept bis iord, but lie brought the
police with him.
This enod the direct examination, .and
Mr. Howe weut for the witness straight
way. He asked him some very disagreeaoie
questions ab-mt his relations with his
wire, his habits, as regards drink, anil his
motives for betra ing Thorn.
Gotha admitted that he had received
$200 or S300 from the district ittor
xu'ju. of New "York and Queens counties
since hlR statement, hut it was becauns he
had no work, and because the necessity of
his being present at so many coufeicnces
kept him from holding a job.
Mr. Olcott very kindly offered to pub In
a schedule of payments from the comp
troller's office "in order to save time,"
but Mr. Howe got very angry and Said l.e
wanted it from the wltness"ffps.

No sooner had today's sitting been called
to order than the opposition began howling
and hurling execrations against the presi

frenzy of indignation at the action of
the president vesterday, In declaring Count
Falkenhnyn's resolution, looking to the
preservation of order, carried, made a rush
upon the tribune, stormed the president's
seat, and tore up the papers lying bet re
When the Socialists stormed the presi

sluing, they -were led by Herr Berner, a
German Socialist, Deputy Berner leaped
over the barrier surrounding the tribune
and seized the president's, bell and port
folio. The president pushed him away
and a number of rightists rushed forward
and felted Eernei to the floor
A great tumult ensued, in the midst or
which Dr, Von Fuchs, one of the vice
presldentsof the chamber, was thrown down
and trampled upon. The Socialist depu
ties rushed to the assistance of Herr Ber
ner and remained in the tribune until a
force of sixty policemen, who had been
summoned by the president, entered the
Inclosurp and drove them out.
The president expelled Herren Wolirand
Scbt-cncter, Germans, and six Socialists

Socialists ind Germans and their allies

Wher the procession of sixty policemen,
headed by a commissioner, entered the

scone of pandemonium, the members
seemed to be struck dumb. Ascending
the platform, where the hubbub was most
furious, the police commissioner rpquefted

Herr Wolff, pale and trembling with
excitement, Jumped upon the platform

struck one of the officers on the ear
and dared him to touch him at Ms peril
The Socialists tried to influence the
police, addressing them like brothers
gone astray, though conipulsorily. Amid
comparative pauses in the Infernal racket
one of the leading Socialists could be
neard addressing the officers. He said:
"We represent a hundred thousand o

asked to leave their box and Deputy

The clearance of the galleries did not
better the condition of affairs, and the
opposition protests against the police
were vainly continued. The offlcerK
stood in a double row in fiont of the
minister's table, and large groups of them
stood to the right and lert, barring the
entrances to the president's platform.
After a long pause President von Abra
hamovics appeared and declared the sitting
open. The leception given htm wis
similar tt the one he received at the
opening of the house. Wolff was too
exhausted to lead the hostility and could
only b'ow bhs whistle. Therefore Herr
Schoenever took up the leadership. He
harnmeied upon his desk wi'h his um
bre'la until the Inkstand and sand box
jumped out of their places and the desk
was splirtered. Presently Wolff recov

The president twice warned him and
then sust ended him. Wolff refused to
budge, and finally seven policemen, al

After this the ministers consented that
the police be withdrawn to the lobbies
and corridois, but this concession did
not silence Schoenever. He had broken
his umbrella, but he still thumped his
desk with the handle with one hand and
his body with the other. Light police

A tumult arose later at the entrance

No Trace of the Murdered "Woman
Chicago, Nov. 26 The Merry murder
mvstcrv grows deeper. No trace of the
nmsin man and woman ha been found.
Two suggestions concerning the disposi
tion of the woman's body are given. One
is that the body was spirited away from
the house in a wagon awl taken t ooi
of the institutions where the carcasses of
horses are rendered into soapgrease aad
dumped Into one or the big vats Oqej. for
boiling the bodies or 1 nrses. The otfter
theory is that it was placed In one of the
large sewers In tbe vicinity of Bridgeport.
Tive arrests have been made In con
nection -with the Merry cafe. Two jC
the men arrested are relatives of Merr-.
At 2 o'clock this morning Sergt. Howard
noticed a wagon with red running gear
and a green body, drawn hy a roan horse,
in Ilalstcad street. Ever since the Merry
mystery developed the police liave held
the description of a wagon In mind. It;
is in that wagon that Merry Is supposed
tc have carted bis wife's body from, tha
houe to an unknown grave.
Howard followed the wagon and kept
the tnree men on it In tight. He later
arrested the party. The men were tori l
bers of Merry's gang. It is belftsved
they can tell where Merry Is hiding.
