Doctor Tells of Death.
Dr. G. B. Calnan, for whom an order
of attachment was Issued Thursday
morning, was the first witness on the
stand for the prosecution Thursday
afternoon and closed the direct testi
mony for the state. He was examined
by Dan Jackson and cross examined Dy
J. E. Wharton, for the defence.
After stating his name to the court,
Dr. Calnan. was asked;-
"Did you see Ernest Kohlberff on
Tune 17?" .
"Yes, he was in a dying condition.
"From a pistol wound."
"Where did he die?"
"In his place of business."
"When did you first see him?"
"Lying on the floor of his store."
"Did you examine him later?"
"Yes. at ilcBean, Simmons and

"It was from a wound starting about

"UHvrrltten Law Defence.
The unwritten law, supported by the
plea of great emotion, will be the de
fence of John Leech, being tried in the
district court for the murder of E.
Kohlberg. This fact became known
when J. E. Wharton, attorney for
Leech, outlined the facts which the de
fence will attempt to prove to the
jury, Thursday afternoon.
"We will show by Leech and his
wife," said the' attorney to the jury,
"that the notice of. dispossession did
not seriously affect eech. There was
no agitation, and he jested with his
wife about the matter because he felt
that he could arrange the matter of
"He then took a more serious view
of the matter and spoke of .his hard
luck. It was then that Mrs. Leech
broke down and cried and fell on a
lounge or chair and told Leech In tears
and sorrow that something had hap
pened which she should have told him
before but had not. We will show
that Mrs. Leech told John Leech that
it was not the rent which had caused
Kohlberg to serve the notice of dis
possession, but it was because she had
refused to submit to Kohlberg's de
sires. "We will show that -when Leech ap
pealed to his wife to know what she
meant she confessed to Leech that
KohlbeTg had for nearly a year so
licited her to become submissive to his
will, to get rid of Leech and keep the

"Leech then complained of the hard
times and tne difficulty of raising
money, and my father got up and
walked toward the office, saying:

Mr." Kohlberg continued, "and looking

"I jumped up from my desk," Mr.
Buchoz then stated, and cried, 'who
did it,' and then ran out and caught
Mr. Kohlberg as he fell. After the
second shot was fired, which was Im
mediately after the first, I saw a man
run out of the store but could not tell
who it was.
"Are "you seriously hurt," I then ask
ed Mr. Kohlberg, "but he did not an

some water. Mr. Kohlberg drank two
glasses and then I called for doctors."
The question of the state as to the
position of the chairs occupied by Mr.
Kohlberg and Leech, directly after
Leech came in, was overruled by the

On the cross examination, Mr. Bu
choz explained his duties in the store,
