Carrollton, Mo., March 30. (Special.) The
principal eent In the T.ijtor trlnl to-day
was the evidence of the two men charged
with the murder of the Meeks family.
They told their stories In a rool nnd un
roneerned way, apparently not mated by
the heinous nature of the cilmo charged
There are still many rumors of a lynch
ing being In store for thu prisoners In tho
event they are not convicted. It was cur
rently reported to-night thnt the got ci nor
would be asked to send a company of tho
national guard to protect the prisoners,
but the source or the statement could not
be ascertained, nnd It Is doubtful If there
Is nuy foundation for It.
As usual, the court room was crowded
this morning, nnd a large number of ladies
Court met at S:.".0 o'clock nnd Immediate
ly proceeded to the examination of wit
nesses for the defense.

reputation of John Harris, Oeorge Tay

having testified to having found clots of
Diooii 011 the wagon bed und running
gear, was bad.
I'h.ules l.ion.ird, brother-in-law of Will,

0 clock 011 the night nf the murder he was
returning from a social call and In passing
the bank wheie Wllll.im T.iylor was cash
ier, looked In and saw him nt work.

evening of May 10 tleorge Taylor ate sup
per at her hou-.e and left for home nt
dusk, and a little later William went to
the bank. lie tettiriied t 10 o'clock and
remained till morning.

not, the day the bodies were found, say to
Mr. llest that now you had glten up all
hopes of William? You were afraid all

Mr. Heat That when William returned In
the moinlng of May 11 he told vou he had

"No, s-ir," iiplli-d Mis. Taylor.
Tlieie Was snini.thlnn- nt .1 ,nMn(ln. t.

some of his past history lie -,.ild that on
the evening of May lo Ucorge went to
Drowning and had supper at his home and
left for homo at duik. He had Ills father's
team and wagon. Half an hour later he
went to his bank nnd did "ome writing

The next morning at 8 o'clock, while lie

Ibei or to hate anything to do with It.
"t told him I was -utMled the man had
been Kill.d and put In the sti.msi.uk so

When asked why he tliought Ids brother

attempt had bom made to Intolve him In
a cattle stealing c.ivc tb ails .Meeks. and
he kiuw If the body of Meeks was found

"Ucorge and 1 talked the matter over

We apprehended it would not be safe for
