French wrlter, who dld not read between tho

Brlef mcntlon waa made last week of tho
sudden death of Mrs. Johu Murtny ot Berlin,
and that an examlnatlon of the body liad been
made by Drs. Chandler and Kemp. The re
sults of the nutopsy have not been made pub
llc, but tne inieronco ls arawn tnat evldeuce of
death from unnntural causcs waa found, as
Murray was nrrested Sunday mornlng on the
charge of murder nnd ls now conllned ln the
Montpelier jall, awaltlng lila heatlng. Tlio at
tentlon of Stato's Attornoy IIuso waa flrst callod
to tho caso on Monday atternoon, July 14th,
and he caused the examlnatlon tobemadethe
followlng day, as stated last week. For some
reason tne body of Mrs. Murray, wbicli had
been buried ln the Clay Hill cemetery, was
dlslnterred on Sunday, nnd the Btomach la now
doubtless belng catcfully examlned by exporta,
The hearing Is now flxed for Thursday, whon
such facts na havo beon dlscovered wlll bo
made publlc, unless the case ls discontlnued
forlack of evidenco. It Is entlrely posslble
that no proof of any foul play wlll bo dlscov
ered, nnd that Murray may have been arrested
merely ns a procautionary meaeure, the stato's
attorney foarlng that he might be scared oft by
me ogiy rumors nuoat anu tne tact tnat tno
body waa dlslnterred. Through the courtesy
of Charlea II. Heath, Esq , cuunsel for Mr,
Murray, und Deputy Sherlff John L. Tuttle, a
representative of Tiik Watchman hnd un ln
torview wlth the prlsoner nt the jall yeatetday,
when, ln reply to questions, he told substan
tlally tho followlng ntory: I was born In More-
rown ana am tnirty-tnreo years of nge. l
rented what Is known aa the Sllloway farm, in
Berlin, about ten vears aco. and bave llved on
lt ever since, wlth the exceptlon of about two
years, isbi-hj, wnen l llved ln Montpelier and
woraea ior tno i.uno aunuincturlntr L'omnanv.
I was marricd about threo years ago and havo
no chlldren. My domestic rolationa have al-
ways been pleaaant. Sunday, July 13tb I waa
perfectly soberand there was no trouble be
tween my wlfo and mvsolf. We were both
about home all day. In the atternoon my wlfe
unu a nirea ooy went out to picK some peas,
wnen sne compiaineaoi tceiinc verv tlred nnd
dlzzy, She camo iu to He down just as I went
out to barnesa a young colt that I waa break
Ing, and when I camo back, about dark, I found
her lylng ouourbed ln the bedroom, not on
the lloor, as has been stated. I sp ke, aud as
she did not answer, I trled to arouse her by
sliakiug nor. t then batbed ber face ln cold
water, tblnking she might have fainted, and
tried every way I could to brlne her back to
consciousnesa. When I found she was dead I
went to my nearett nelghbor, Moses Shuttle,
and, taklog hla team, wo two camo to Montpe
lier to notify mv relatlves and cet a ohvsician.
Some one went after Dr. Chandler and I leturned
to my home wlth my Blster. Mrs. Sellnas. Dr.
Chandler dld not come and L sent my brotber
to Montpelier, telllng him to get some doctor
to come Buro. He found Dr. Templeton, who
arrlved about thioj o'clock Monday mornlng.
Atter ruaking an examlnatlon. he told us to
prepare tho body for burial, and sald lt might
just as well have been done before. I was par
tlcular to have a doctor come, as the doath of
my wlfe was so sudden that I waa afraid there
might be bouio susplcioua about It. The flrst
intimatlon I had that anything waa wrong was
on Tuesdav mornlng. when Stato's Attornev
Uuse, with Dra. Chandler and Kemp, came to
the houso aud the physlclana held a post mor
tem examlnatlon. Nothing waa sald about
any legal proceedlnga, aud the tuneral waa
neid at tne uainoiic cuurch in Montpelier,
Fatber Duelue ofllciatine. Durinir the week
I heard reports tbat I was arrested, but I kept
about my work as usual. stavlDg nlchts at mv
father'a on Court Btreet. Sunday murning, just
aa l was nitcning np my norse to go to my
farm, Deputy Sherlff Tuttle arrested me nnd
brought me to jall. My wlfe has been troubled
witn aizziness ana sliortness of breath ever
since four years ego, when she bad a kind of
Bunstroke, and on sevei.il occaslons has been
prostrated by some unusual excitement.
Inere ia a Beemlnnlv well-founded renort
that Murray and hls wlfe have not always
nveanappny, ana Murray s record nas not been
wunout biemisn, but tnere suould be very
positive evldence brought out before he ahould
to judged by the publlc to be guilty of so
terrlble a crlme as tbe murder of hls wife.
The result of the hearing will be awailcd wlth
Tlio Sariutjrs lianks.
