end of the season young Ely was so im
pressed with tho advantages of divorce that
he thought it vital to hU happiness. He
wrote to James E. Lee. his counsel here,
that he murt hive a divorce. He said that
bis love was not strong enough to bear w hat

The Defense in the Frank Jamas Gate
Start off in Good Shape What They
will Attempt to Prove Testimony Given
Yesterdry-Shelby Want to Fbjht.
Umi.a itv, Mo., August SO. The line ot
defeue was agreed upon at a consultation
of Krank James' attorneys yesterday, and,
briefly stated, lean alibi and mistaken Iden
tity. Tne defense will be that Frank James
was not connected In any way with the
Winston robbery ; that he was not In the
s.ate; that his prosecution is the result of a
conspiracy on tbe part of Lwldesl, the
Kurd-, Boltons, the nftlclais aud the rail,
roads; that l.iddell did his testifying to
save his neck, aud in pursuance of au agree
ment to spare his neck if James ht con
victed; that the Fords and Mrs. Bolton are
in the same boat wttb him, actuated by a
desire to get rid offl Frank,
to prevent bis avenging Jesse's
death; that the officials are actuated by re
venge, because Frank did not surrender to
them or permit himself to be captured by
them, aud by an ambition to convict. The
defense will he able to account for tbe fifth
man in tun robbery, aud show who It waa
that waa seen in the nelghboibood of the
crime. The deicnse will also insist that tbe
identification is so conflicting that no ver
dict should be found, cvea though it
should offer no testimony. Tbe defense
will account for the whereabouts of Frank
at the tune,
a farmer living seven miles southwest of
dallatln, testitied to having been at the
i' 1 .ii k sin it Li simp of Jonas Potts. November
:'0, 11, when two men came up In a
wagon to have something done to the
vehicle. When they went away, Potts, who
seemed very much excited, said, "those
are the two men fur whom I shod th horses
before the Winston robbery." Wllnesi
had a good look at tbe men, and defendant
was positively not one of tbem. Jonaa
Potts visited Independence when Frank
James was in Joil. On his return witness
iuked: "Did you see Frank James?"
"Yes," was the answer, "1 saw him for
the first time In my life."
a farmer, living three and a half miles
from Winston, testified that Potta, the
blacksmith, had said to him that be recog
nized a picture of Jesse James after he was
killed as that of tbe men whose horse he bad
shod. Potts had been to town and ctme
back pretty boozy.
a. A CHAPMAN
testitied that Potts said on bis return from
the Independence Jail that he really did not
know whether Frank James was tbo man
whose horse be shod or not.
Mr. Rushe opened the case for the de
fense by a half hour's speech, saying he
expected to prove that all of the chief wit
nesses for the stale were conspirators who
had personal ends to serve by securing the
conviction nf tbe defendant, and that the
other witnesses, uudcr tbe Influence of
persuasion, had schooled their minds to
believe that they actually remembered the
defendant as one of tbe men in the vicinity
of the robbery. Tbe defense then began
lis prosecution of the case, proving by two
Nashville witnesses the steady bibiu and
good character of Frank James while he
resided there; proving by a lawyer
who was on the train, an!
who critically examined tbe
robbery In tbe smoking ear, that Frank
James in no wise resembled either of tbem;
proving the blacksmith, who so positively
Idciitltied the prisoner, made to Ui 'in en
tirely different statements to the effect that
he saw him In Jail; and finally proving by a
lady and her daughter, at whuee house the
t wo men were described by the state 'a wit
nesses stopped on the day of tbe robbery
that the defendant did not resemble either
of tbem. The record of Dick Liddell'e
conviction for bone stealing was oflerexl
as an Impeachment of the tuformers 'eett

jection made to it admissibility, the eoart
took a recess until to-morrow morning.

editorial on Mr. Parneil'a speech made
Wednesday evening at the National Uairue
meeting in Dublin, says that he Is gru-v-euitly
mistaken if he believes the Irish party
baa triumphed over government or is about
to gain a victory In the coming parliament
ary elections. It saya tbe roost terrible
charges that have been made against
Irish partisans have never been an-wered
and that no attempt has been made to clear
leaders of the home rule party from com-
'pilctty In tbe most shameful deeds of tbe
Irish assassins, and that these facts will net
be forgotten by England. The Daily New
ays It Is evident tbe key-note of Mr. Par
Dell's speech is that be n peels seme meaa
ure of local self-government for Ireland
will be passed shortly after the openrrsg ot
Parliament. The Standard remarks that
Parnell's return to the fiel4
