In opening the case for the state,
Mr. McKusick made a very able
presentation of what the state would
attempt to approve, by a strong
chain of circumstantial evidence
and an admission alleged to have
been made by defendant to witness
who would swear that he (Fournier)
had said he had killed the Dahls.
"it is the theory of the state," said
Mr. McKusick, that Mr. Dahl and
his daughter were enticed to go from
the girl's cabin to the old man's and
when once outside the murderer,
who was following, shot Mr. Dahl,
running to him and firing another
bullet into his head from short
range. Miss Dahl evidently tried
to run away and was shot in the
shoulder and severely wounded, and
as her clothing was saturated with
blood, she roust have kept on run
ning. The'murderer followed and

struck her down by crashing in her
skull with the butt end of the gun.
"To crown all this, we have a
statement given by Fournier which
indicates that his conscience is
bothering him. When he had been
granted a new trial and a change of
venue to Crow Wing county, he be
came confidential with prisoners in
the Beltrami county jail. He said
that he saw the crime of killirg the
Dahls committed that he was re
turning to bis home on the night of
April 9, 1904. When he came to
Caldwell's barn and saw a light, he
went to the barn and saw old man
Dahl's lifeless body lying on a manure
pile, standing near the body were Mrs.
Caldwell and Miss Dahl and further
away were Caldwell and Owen
French. Y'v?? ^"'o
O. C. Rood and C. O. StranJer
were called arid ^corroborated state
ment given by Mr. McKusick as to
visiting Quiring and other matters
relative to the Dahls. Dr. Marcum
of Bemidji, deputy coroner of Bel
trami county, told of holding the
inquest over body of Aagot Dahl
and as to nature of wounds on body.
Thomas Dure related of finding
the body of the girl.
An hour before adjournment in
the afternoon, the state sprung
something of a surprise in calling
George Moody to the stand, and
requesting that he, as official court
reporter for the Fifteenth Judicial
district, read the notes of the evid
ence given by Fournier at the trial
held at Brainerd last winter, when
Fournier was acquitted of the
charge of murdering N. O. Dahl.
"Fournier told his hearers that
Miss Dahl attempted to run towards
him but one of the men shot,her and
that she fell, waving her little white
hand towards him. Fournier in
sisted on telling the story many
times. There is no foundation in
fact for this story. However, one
feature is absolutely true, that about
the little white hand. Fournier saw
Aagot Dahl fall all right, though
the littlewhite hand was not waved
toward him for help, but he saw
that hand tremble and fall, and
night after night that vision has
been with him, and he has manu
factured that story to ease his mind."
There was objection on the part
of Mr. Scrutchin, but Judge Stan
ton ruled that the testimony as
given ,at that trial by Fournier
could be read to the jury. Mr.
Moody was still reading at the
Mr. 'McKusick explained that
his object in reading this evidence
was to give to the jury several ad
missions that were made at the
Brainerd trial which it would be
impossible to get for this trial.
