hopeless; I did not seo him again living;
next saw him nt Coroner's inquest nnd ho
was then ii corpse; r;iosi moritmoxamin
iition was then made bv l)rs. llanucrs,
I McLane and myself; after dissecting wo
! found the bono' fractured; frncturo was
' about the slzo of threo Oent pleco; It was
i nearly round; the fracture was In tho upper
edgs'rlght side, of thcocepltal bono; tho
upper edge oi tlio lructuro was dctacneu
and pressed inward; tho brain being in
compressible this caused a'lacoratlon of tho
mcmtiriinc; passed n prolio in nnd met no
resistance nasslne; Into the brain i such in
jury to tho brain, was, In my opinion, to so
shock mo nervous system mat it never ro
acted; think tho blood vessels of tho
brain wero fractured j blood driven out of
its natural channels so that it cannot es
cape Is destructive of life; tho cause of
tho convulsive condition of tho deceased
on Mondur was ncrvouse depression : de-
iiresslon also caused the vomiting; the in
ury ho received on tho back part of tho
tend caused his dontli ; from tho cxamlna-
I on iiiitdo 1 cannot conceive or anv other
cause of death; tho injury on tlio back'
ot ms nead was a mortal injury..
The twitching In tho right side was caus
ed. I think, from tho injury to the brain;
it is my opinion that tlio injury from which
lie died, was tho samo I felt on his head
Saturday night. Kxcitemcnt will some
times keen n man on his feet after really
serious Injury ; it is posslblo for a man to
walk after his skull is fractured ; some
times they talk and sometimes not; I think
that his mind wns injured nt tho tlmojlsaw
deceased on tho road; tho injury from
which he died wos received before I saw
him on Saturday night ; round
stick with bark on it could scarcely pro
duce such a wound ; It depends, however,
somewhat upon how tho tho blow was di
rected ; tho wound was round ; I saw dc
defendant on tho next day in a harliarshop
nnd he was talking ; ho said that if ho
"hud not run like is 1 when ho knocked
Joe (deceased Hlown, ho would havo got n
h 1 of a lick,'1 1 asked him who would
give it to hlm; ho replied 1'ctcr Uoifman
nnd Andy Aden.
Tho danco stopped when the dllllculty
occurcd; I saw iloccased throw his coat
back nnd started toward tho fence; did
see which way defendant went but dld'nt
seo which way deceased went ; I did not
follow defendant : tho crowd had drank n
f;ood deal of beer ; heard a crack ; I think
t was about 50 or 75 yards to plaeo of
difficulty from houso ; when I got. to place
of dllllculty, Holl'man and Clemens wero
raiting deceased up ; HolTnmn was talking
to him; by tho asslstanco of UotTman and
Clemens ho walked to tho fenco ; whon ho
wnl ked to the left of tho houso; it was
about midnight when I got home; I do
not think that my recollection is as good
us It was when Wore Judgo Crawford ;
havo no recollection of asking deceased on
the road whothcr ho was hurt; did ask
if Abe hurt him; doceased had drank con
siderable beer; ho was a beer drinker;
cannot say whether ho was undor tho In
fluence of beer that night or not; am tin
nblo to describo nu exccsslvo drinker';
they say 1'ctcr Hodman drank half a
barrel in ono day : I was not his physician
und did not think it my duty to care for
him when hurt; tho reason why I stated
that the injury from which ho died was
inflicted before I saw him on tho road, Is
that ll was in tumo locality; the examina
tion on Tuesday evening was through two
neisslons which wero lnadu about oiie-half
licit in length.
Tliu witness underwent n thorough and
very critical uJluntioit of tho anatomy
nud phrcuulofysW the skull. Tho sum
nud substance .of thu testimony of Dr.
Williams ou this point wns that tho wound
on tho head of deceased might nnd might
not produce death.
Prosecution horo rested tho case.
