Hillhboro, III., Deo. 15. -Tbe witness
H lultlu continued bl testimony at the af
ternoon session of Ibe Emma Bond trial
yesterday. He tested in relation to thu
bunches ot hair found In the loft, where
tbe assault Is ssid to have been perpetrated.
There were three or four bunches. Wit
net and Mr. Bond picked up all tbey saw.
Tbe first time he saw Pettut tnd Clementl
at the :bool was at 8 o'clock on tbe follow
ing morning, deveral times Montgomery
tuaJe tbe remark that he was eot guilty and
that be knew nothing. He then repeated
the conversation between Zwlck, Mont
gomery and himself, bringing out very
pointedly this statement: "Zwlck said,
Clementl is arrested down at 'Squire
Shelb's. Mis Bond has tome
scratches on her neck and
arms and dementi has a finger bitten. H
has given the whole thing away.' Then it
wa that John Montgomery said, 'My
Lotdi' or 'My God what shall we do?'
Swick SHld, 'Johnnie, I'm surprised you
would go Into a thing like that. If you're
guilty, tend for Pettut. If Clementl has
beeu mean enough to try and put It on you,
we must fix up some store story to put it on
Clementl.'" Heinlein then detailed bow
Montgomery bad asked Zwick to take a mes
sage to Lee Pnttus to "give nothing away."
Zwlck replied that he -wai an officer and
that be mlglt be asked aboul such things.
He told Montgomery to give tbe message to
the witness, Helnlelo. "Jnhnuie sail he
was not afraid to trust me. He told me to
tell Pettut, 'Stand fast and give nothing
Tbe next witness was W. R. Ellsworth of
Tayloi ville, III. He said be arrested Jobn
Montgomery on the 30th of June, 1882. and
took from blm a knife, which he showed.
He examined (he hole cut in tbe wall of tbe
chool house loft, as described by Miss
WHILE CP IN THE LOFT.
a paring of a toe-nail was found. That
nlgbt he fitted It to John Montgomery's big
toe. Tbe paring fitted three-fourths of the
w.ty across. It looked as If a second paring
a 1 been off tbe remainder ot tbe nail.
There wai tpparently a createwhlcb ran out
on the right side of Montgomery's toe-nail
which colnoldsd exactly with a crease in the
paring. On cross-examination witnens tes
tified that tbevomparlson of the nail and the
toe took place at Judge MuCasklH't office.
Mr. Drennan, Mr. McBrlde and other,
were there. McBride tald It fitted only
one-quarter of tbe way across, but witneit
replied that it fitted three-quarters across.
On redirect examination witness said be
tried the paring on the toe of Lee Petus,
but it would not fit.
Aenry Crowl tot fl,.rl timt be arrexte l
Clementl at Blue Mound, ou June 30, 1882.
Tbe prisoner said he was innocent, and
hoped his friends would not go back upon
him. He then described the clothing and
underclothing of Miss Bond to his captor.
He taid It was mussed and bloody. When
asked how be knew, be replied that Mrs.
Pf-ttui had told blm. He further tated
that he wUr-ed that be bad gone to Bt.LouU .
Crowl te.t.fWd that after he had taken Cle-
vwuu WUUtVIUCII IJICt, .
Montgomery tald he was. under
arrest, and that "if they hadn't
been In such a hurry they might have found
out tomethlng. Now, I'm dumb." On
cross-examination Crowl said that when he
told Clementl be bad a dispatch from Bond,
tbe prisoner bung his bead and hoped bis
friends would not so backjon blm. Later
on, be said be could prove an alibi, that he
was at Mrs. Pettus' house tbat afternoon,
and tbat Jobn Montgomery and bis wife
were there also.
At the conclusion of the witnesses' ex
amination court adjourned until Monday at
11a.m. Moat of tbe witnesses took ad
vantage of tbe adjournment and went bom?
on a special train to Christian county.
WHAT THE DKPEV9E CLAIM.
Tbe court having adjourned las evening
until Monday, tbere I nothing doing here
to-day In tbe Bond case. Tbere is great
indignation about tbe account of the alleged
Interview with Miss Bond published in a
St. Louis evening paper. M. Hannon, a
friend of the Bonds, denies tbat Miss Bond
made any statements to any rep rter, and
asked that tbe Interview be treated as false.
Other statements In tbe article so worked
up tbe people here that an effort was made
last nlgbt to thrash the author. Tbe effort
was not contrasted, but tbe reporter wai
arrested this morning on a warrant charging
him with carrying concealed weapons.
Tbe reporter, Whose name Is Whitman,
was tried before Justice Rundle and fined
$25, and on tbe testimony of a woman who
taw the weapon In his bands. MUs Bond
will probably go on tbe ttand agnin for the
purpose ot correcting tbe mlHsiatementN
made while In a confuted state of mind
when cross-examined by Judge Thorn ton.
Tbe attorneys for tbe defence state that
tbey can knock the legs from under tbe
prosecution, having the strongest kind of
an alibi. Tbe strongest point hi tbe prose
cution it the Identification of Montgoiu ry
by Miss Bond. Tbe rest of the evidence, it
it laid, will be clrcumitantlitl. Mi Bond
