The Frank James Ca.ie With the .rury
Awaiting Their Vordiot-The Brilliant
EXSpeech of Prosecutor Wallace.

Johnson consumed all of yesterday after
noon with his speech. He was loudly ap
plauded al the close and mad" the recipi
nt "f quiie a number of houqueLs. The
i-oiirt announced that Mr. Wallace would
ie permitted to cloe the case this morning.
There was a very large audience in the
run rt house as early as S o'clock, the
ladies being again nut in force. Mr. Wal
lace commenced speaking at 9 o'clock.
He explained hits couueetion wilh
the case and then gracefully compli
mented the overwhelming array of
tomiscl on the other side. For the wife of
the defedaul, who was seated by bis side,
be had nothing but Ihe profoundest sym
pathy and respect. As for the defend.in:.
be looked upon him as any other man, only
different, perhaps, because he had been
endowed by God wilh a inagniticcnt in-,
cllect that should have made him
splendid man. The defense bad taut
a great deal about Ihe Rock lland
railroad in this oasc and sought to
exeiie the granger prejudice. It is not
W'ltiiidi'd capital thai cabs upon you to re-dre-s
the' wrongs, it is the
noHMpital, that cries aloud fur justice; it
is the bleeding wounds of McMillan, the
stonemason, that speaks, The defendant
s said to be a remarkable man, but the
question before you it: "Is the arm of the
law or the arm of the bandit Ibe stronger in
Missouri?" The speaker then d dined
malice ami premeditation and discussed tho
instructions. The testimony was taken up
and the action of Ih" defense in changing
its course in lle face of the jury
by abandoning the .'nil Ciituuiings theory
was slronsrly commented upon. A lino
pree of oratory wa.s the r ference to .Mc
Millan's desolate widow and children. The
audience burst into applause, which was
cheeked by the court, who administered a
severe reproof. Mr. Wallace then went
iulo an analysis of the testimony, treating
it entirely fi'otn memory and in a ramark
nbly clear ami forcible manner. The Men
l't) uf Frank .lames was followed up finin
Nashville to the surrender, and the abso
lute responsibility of the identifying wil
lies, es wa dwell upoa, The jury was be
sought lo recall that. In all Ihe trans
actions of the gang they were
moved by greed for money alone,
and n ehivalric revenge for wrongs commit
ted (luring the war had nothing to do wilh
It. The speech was not completed until
l-ilo, and is pronounced by ibe allorncvH
here us one of the most forcible eff.uls ever
made In a murder case in this stale. There
was enthusiast e applause at. the close of Ihe
speech and Mr. Wallace was wminlv eon
gruiulHled by his friends. The effort ia
pronounced the best of the case. , lodge
Goodman then swore the bailiff to lake
charge of the jury, which ictlred til U;'.'0.
There is much speculation as to the ver
dict, but the prevalent Idea Is mat the
jury will either disagren .r return a ver
dict of gudly of murder in the second de

not communicated with her parents) yet,
nor bus any one wbo la aware of her present
w hereabout, made any revelition concern
ing it. Those engaged in the prosecution
of the search for ber are enmplclcly
mystified, and from the scarcity of nmtenal
upon which to work" are compelled to re
main almost idle. Col. Churchill follow,
up everv clew that presentH lUelf with an
energy and steadineis of purpose which Is
surprising to those w ho know him. "I have
not much faith In the Caldwell theory."
said he this morning, "but I have written i
friend of mine in Chihuahua, where Cald
well is supposed to be, a full account of
Miry 's disappearance, with a narration of
from Topeka and tbe rumors that connect
both names, and asked bint to investigate
tbe matter if Caldwell is in his city. Be
yond this theory we have nothing to work
on. 1 received a letter from Burlington
this morning frem a gentleman who bellevei
he saw Mary there, but he has ne reason
for believing It was she other than that the
girl answers Mary's description." Col.
I imrctilll said the Chief of Police bad sent
out hundred of Mary's photograph, t tbe
police department of the country.
MR. T. H. A VI IT If
said this morning that he bad reeeired no
i information aa to the present residence
of ids daughter, Bertha. Mr. Smith hat
the consolation of knowing that no barm
lias befallen his dau.lhti"', as the letter the
wrote and the steps she took indicate that
she is living with some friend or in a nice
private family at any rate she is pursuing
a homely life. Still he is very anxioue to
know w here she Is. .
