Its Side of the Jackson Case.
Dr. Frcemnn, of tho Eclectic Medical Col
lege, Ctnclnnntl, Says Without Ilcalta
tlon That tho Decapitation Mnst '
Have Taken Flaco During Life.
(Tuesday's Testimony Continued)
Coachman Oeorgo IL Jnckson, employed by
MaJ. Wlddeflcld, on Ml Auburn, was placed
on tho'stand and testified to driving a coupe to
Kentucky; for Atonzo Valllns. Ho said that
on tho night of January 31 ho was going homo
from a meeting of tho Caldwell guards about
11:30, he was met by Alonzo Walling on Elm
and George streets, who offered S for a driver
Jo tafe him about a square beyond Newport!
uruigo: witness said ho would take the Job
Walling went up Elm street I waited about
half an hour, when tho 'carriage drove
down Elm to Third, then to Broadway and then
to tho Newport bridge. Just then the man
who hired me got up bes) Jo -mo to direct tho
way.
"Wo. jvent two squares, and then ho sa,Id:
'Turn to the left.' and then wo went threo
squares and then zig-zag all tho way. Wo
went under tho railroad bridge. I don't know
which. We kept on a-going, and I didn't
think anything wrong until wo got to a
placo I havo learned since was a dis
tillery. Just thon I heard a strange notso In
tho back of tho carrlnge; It sounded like a
woman who was suffering with toothache.
'See here,' I Bald to myself, 'I don't llko this
Job.' There was a sound Uko glass crashing,
and I said: 'Thoro's somothlng tho matter: I
don't ltko this Job,' and put my foot down to
got out of tho cab.
"I handed tho reins to the man with mo and
started out, but tho man did not toko It, and I
looked at him and saw I was looking Into a
rovolver. Ho said: 'Drhoon.you black ,
or I'll drho you to .' I drove on.
"At tao Drldgo I heard that samo moan
nrrtiln. hilt T l.-nm. rlnht rn rlrtvtnrr fnr whoti?
ever I looked at tho man he had his gun point
ed at me.
"We went about a mile or throo-quartorson
a mud road. Wo went on until we struck a
pike. Wo went to a placo where soveral roads
meet Half way down tho hill thefmsn In tho
back said thero was whero wo waited to stop
and I checked up
"Tho man on tho seat with mo was Walling
and tho man In tho back was Scott JaCksoa
Tho man in tho back of tho carriage helped
tho woman out, and tho man In front ran
around and got on tho other side of the lady.
They helped her along and told mo to drlvo off.
I looked back, and the last I saw of them was
as they wero gottlng over tho fence. I drove
to the end of tho bill. I heard a peculiar
nolso after I had been waiting about flft6cn
minutes I expect not that long and then I
started for homo afoot
"Tho horso was gray and a pretty good road
horso. Wo drove slowly until wo got to the
tollgato on tho bridge; then wo drovo very
rapidly tho rest of tho way, I have no doubt
that tho men who wore jrlth mo wero Scott
Jackson and Alonzo Waiting "
Tho witness was severely cross-qucstlonod
by the attorneys for tho defense,but he stuck"
to bis story. Jackson continued In reply to
questions: .
"I ran all tho way to Newport I struck tho
river about tho old fort. I don't know what
part of town I struok first I was never over
hero before: I didn't know oast, west, north or
south. I saw the lights of Cincinnati when I
got to tho end of tho old mud road. I saw some
stream as I was going out I dld'nt know It
was tho Licking.
"I don't know what time I got to Ma Wld
delleld's. I fixed the f urnaco fire, went to my
room and Just then the electric light
wont out It wasn't daylight I won't say
what tlmo It was."
"Why didn't you keep tho road?"
"Iwent baok to the road and then I left tho
road because I was afraid tho two follows
might get the vohlclo and catch me."
Crawford tried to tangle tho witness as to
tho routo ho followed returning to Cincinnati,
but ho was not 'successful.
The witness admitted that he at one time
lived In Springfield, O., and was concerned
there in a case against Wm. Jlelvln.
Chester Mullen was recalled and on cross
examination said there was no hitching w eight
or any arrangement for hitching tho rig when
It left his stnblo, nor any railroad Iron. If the
iron had been In tho coupe witness1 would have
known It
Lieut Corbln, of tho CinolnnatI police force,
was called and testified about searching Jack
son. Ho Identified the bridge tjeket and the
handkerchiefs found on.the prisoner.
Wm. Cassldy, a Newport butcher, testified
to crossing tho Central railroad bridge on thf
night of January 31, or morning of Tobruary 1;
between 15:30 and 1:3a Ho was coming oiei
from Cincinnati "A gray horso and carriage,
rapidly driven, came up behind. I remarked
that they seemed to bo In a hurry."
Sheriff Plummer testified and gavo a graphic
description of the scene of tho murder. As ho
told how tho body lay Poarl Bryan's mother
bowed her head. ,The sheriff's description
corroborated that already given. The spot
was visible from only ono point on either of
tho roads near-by.
The sheriff tostlfled to finding a depression
two or three inches In dlamoter near tho body.
Spectators In the courtroom connected this
depression with tho trousers found In the den
tal college stained with mud on the knee.
There wero four bloody finger marks on tho
corset and near by. Tho upper part of tho
dress was saturated.
Alex. Bryan, father of tho murdered girl,
took the stand. Ho testified ho last saw hi
daughter January 27. Bald her remains were
brought to Oreencastle minus the head; had
never heon able to find It '
Lived In Oreoncastlo In the summer of 1895.
Knows Scott Jackson. Ha visited my house
In the spring and fall of 1895. He camo while
his wife was away from homo. Did not know
of his daughter's condition when she left home.
Nbwpout, Ky., April Jft Wednesday morn
lng tho prosecution lu tho Jackson murder
trial sprung a surprise In the testimony ol
Mrs. Sarah Setther, who lives on tho Licking
pike. She Bays that on tho Thursday morning
before the murder, while on her "way to Now
port, she met Jackson and Walling going south
on tho same road and they Insulted her.
Mrs. Alice Stelfol, who Uvos on a road leading-to
tho Alexandria plko, testified that some
tlmo after .midnight on the morning of Feb
ruary 1 sho heard a vehicle being rapidly
driven past htr homo toward the Alexandria
pike.
The testimony ol Dr. Edwin Freeman was
most damaging to the defense. When a hypo
thetical question In which tho condition In
whteh the dead body was described was put,
he answered positively and without hesitation
that decapitation must have taken place dur
ing life.
Wednesday morning Photographer Clarlo
testified that bo has had 10 years' experience
In his business. He mado numerous photo
graphs of Pearl Bryan's body and different
portions of It as It lay la White's undertaking
establishment In Newport Those photographs
of the body, headless and mutilated by the
post-mortem operations, were banded to the
Jury. For several moments tho twelve men
studied ihem Intently, A second collection of
pictures of tho girl's hands and feet were. In
troduced. Judge Helm looked at them first
bofore he overruled Crawford's aobjeotton, and
handed them to the Jury.
Sarah Selther took the stand, sho testified
that for two years she lived near Kessea'a
Gum,, on the Llckimr bike. On Thursday
n'jisras ucrore tno na.-c r sag was coming
down thoroidMio met Jnckon and Walling.
The witness siy. One of them uns singing,
nnd tho other n vhlst,lng Annlo Itooncy. I
had on a sun bonnet. Tlwy looked nt mo nnd
I turned .iroutU und Iflokod ut them. They
gaped at me.'1
Upon croi--ecunlmtion sho said It must
have been 8 o'c.oi 1. whoa sho mot tho men.
bhe suld sho had i.ot seen Jackson since until
Just before shu touk tho stand.
"I have seen the newspaper rlclurcs, but
they don't anyof them look much llko him."
Eicry ono laughed aud Crawford said for the
sako of tho newspaper artists, ho would move
tohao that portion of tho eUdcnco stricken
out.
Juror John Bochmer asked what kind of
hats tho men wore. The witness snld tho men
wero walking leisurely. Walling had a black
derby: Jackson woro a light cap Jackson's
cap was shown tho witness and sho said It
looked like th3 ono Jackson woro.
Mrs. Alice Stelfel testified that tho condi
tion ot the road on the night of January 31 was
muddy. It is ,a pretty good road. Witness
thought tho moon was dark that night As a
matter of fact tho moon was full on tho morn
ing of January 30 Tho witness said that after
mldnUht ehe hoard tho sound of a vehicle go
ing up tho hill: sounded ll'to a one-horso ve
hicle. I could only hear tho foot-beats of one
horse. I heard the rattle of tho chicle. It
was not peculiar. I got up. I took tho vohlclo
for a doctor's buggy." -Tho ehlcle was going
tery fau Tho vehicle was going toward Al
exandria pike Tho hill Is soldom traveled
late at night Mrs. Stelfol said that, although
tho hill Is a long one, tho horso sho hoard In
the night nas trotting up the slope.
Dr. Edwin Freeman, professor of surgery In
tho Eclectic Medical college ot Cincinnati,
testified In answer to o'hjpothetlcal ques
tion by Attorney Hays, ns to the condition of
tho cuts on the body of the murdered girl
when found, tho doctor said! "Ihe cuts must
have been made during life Tho clns
would not hac emptied by dralnsgo
from a dead body. Tho blood
must hao beer) thrown cut by con
traction of tho heart The heart docs not con
tract after death. There is also no retraction
of the skin after death, except Just immedi
ately. It ceases a few minutes after death.
Thcro Is an lnltablllty of tho skin within a
few mlr,utes after death, but It quickly passes
away, end In Igororous mere quickly than In
weak persons It can bo paralyzed a short
tlmo by electricity."
"Do you understand that the body was In
clined!" tho court asked.
"Yes: and I say tho blood could not hao
drained from tho body If the cut was made
after death It would onlv hno drained from
the neck and adjacent parts The balance ot
the blood had to pass throuijn the heart and
tho heart must hao been In action when tho
nrtles of the neck wercsoiered "
Attorney Crawford objected to a question as
to tho cause of the girl's death which was put
at this point. Ho was overruled and tho doc
tor answered:
"Her death was caused "by tho hemorrhage
of blood and the severing of the spinal cord.
Death follows almost Immediately, If not Im
mediately, on the scvcrcnce of tho spinal cord
at tho neck "
"Tho cut would have been a clear one. with
out retraction of the skin, and the blood ves
sels would havo been filled. The blood on tho
leaves necessarily Indicates some change of
tho position In which tho front of tho body was
elevated. When tho arteries wcro cut the
blood spurted In a shower."
' Could 'tho condition of tho blood on tho
leaves havo been produced by molng tho
body If the head was severed after death!"
"It could not, except by some person sprink
ling blood on the leaves. "
Tho doctor was shown a photograph of the
dead body, and after a close examination ho
said, by tho appoaranco at tho spinal column
and by tho ring of tho retracted skin drawn
back Into a fold, tho head evidently was sever
ed beforo death. That condition could not
havo been produced by severing the head of a
dead body.
On cross-examination tho vUtncss admitted
that tho undertaker's work of threo hours on
that neck tying It up to prevent tho the flow
ot fluids might havd caused the appearance as
shown In tho picture. "I don't fthlnk that the
retraction of tho skin could ha o been done
carolessly after death, but only purposely.
The arteries stand out In tho soft tissues and
not near the skin It is not necessary to re
tract tho skin to get hold of them and tie
them. Of course, there might be some push
ing back through awkwardness. In my first
answer I did not tako any such o'.ement Into
consideration."
Dr. Freeman testified that had chloroform
and cocaine been administered the victim
would hao roused when decapitation was at
tempted. "Dot" Legnor was called anl Identified the
vallso left In his father's saloon In Cincinnati
and also Identified the prisoner. Lcgncr said
that tho valise the first tlmo Jackson left It
weighed three or four pounds and the second
tlmo was apparently empty.
