EVIDENCE AGAINST LEAH
CORONER'S JURY IN THE
Number of Wlttieaaea) Hwortl
and Tom Harris) DlMCharired
Prom Cualody Lean Bouud
Over to Court.
The coroner's jury in the Harriet Wil
liams murder case met in the court house
this morning to hear the remainder of
the testimony. The room wns crowded.
few minutes before it was opened the
two prisoners, Leah Foreman and Tom
Harris, entered the court accompanied
by Deputy Sheriff Jones. They took scats
on the prisoners' bench. Neither of the
prisoners showed any agitation or nerv
ousness. Ihe foreman woman was
Ircssed entirely in black nnd wore a
straw hat from which floated a profusion
Dollie Warren was the first witness.
She swore to living near Leah Foreman
nd to knowing Thos, Harris and Har
riet Willinms and stated that she never
knew of any difficulty between the three.
On the Sundny morning nfter the murder
Leah told the witness that if she knew
ho killed her mother she would cut
them to pieces and feed them to the dogs.
The counsel went into a lengthy exami
nation to show what clothes Leah had
on Monday and it came out that on that
ay the accused woman wore a white
skirt and that there was blood on the
bottom of it. She said she hud gotten
it on her by falling in a faint near the
bloody steps at the house and that she
hated to wear it to the funeral because
folks would think she killed her mother.
A sensation was caused when Ileputy
Sheriff Jones brought the skirt into the
room and handed it to the witness. The
latter thought she could identify it.
She swore that the blood on the floor
was dry when she got to the scene of the
murder on Sunday morning.
Christina Young swore that Harriet
had told her she was going to have sonic
trouble with her children. She did not
now whether Harriet had any money
nbout her. The murdered woman had
never told her so. It was the opinion ol
the neighbors that she had money. She
had not heard of Leah's fainting nt the
house. She did not see a bloody skirt on
Iruh that day. She, the witness, hnd
ragged her skirt over the blood on the
nrjiet but it was dry and did not stain
Laura Builcy was culled. She had seen
lcuh on the night of the murder going
past her home on Old Depot street nnd
toward the place where the murder was
committed. When Leah passed the house
she asked her to come in but the r'plv
wus she had no time. When asked where
she was going the accused woman replied
that she wns going to the devil and that
if she was not seen any more the witness
might know she was in h I.
Anna Miller also saw Leah on the Sat
urduy night. She asked her why she did
not come anil sec her and the reply was
that she didn't hnve time. Then Leah
replied apparently without cause that
she was going to kill somebody or some-
IxhIv wns going to kill her. The witness
Ida Ilausten and Mury Itenson were
called. The tatter swore that Leah had
Isrcn at ner house every night for n long
time except the night of the murder,
Ilnrry Park told the story of the find
ing of the body, und of seeing Lcali the
night before near the old dcKt.
Jennie Williams, the sister of the 11c-
used, swore that the accused woman
drunk und that she lived with Hams
without being married. She had seen the
bloody skirt but could not identify the
one in court. She swore that that was
not the one. She hnd not seen Leah faint
at the house. Knew that she did not
faint. The witness testified that Lenh
hnd once threatened to kill her and that
she was afraid of her. Her sister fainted
nt the grnve. '
She testified that she would not lie
gainer in proM?rty in the event of her sis
ter's hanging nnd left the chair, having
materially weakened Leah's case.
Wlien Deputy Sheriff Jones' name wns
called there was a stir in the court room
He has had charge ol the case and some
startling testimony wns expected. Mr,
Jones told the story of the case as he hnd
worked it up and or the arrest ol Tom
Harris and Lculi Foreman. The latter
had told him two stories of her where-
alioutson that night nnd hnd also denied
the statements credited to her hy the
Dniley and Miller women.
At the conclusion of his testimony Tom
Harris was discharged from custody
There was no evidence against him, nnd
the case was given to the jury.
During the trial Leah Foreman's root
wns measured and proved that it would
exactly fit tome trncks made in a corn
field on the night of the murder.
Mr. Ilurdwicke represented Ilnrris. It
was through hit advice that the pris
oner refused to tnlk when seen a few
dnys ago. He hns stoutly maintained
his Innocence from the itnrt and there
can he no doubt of it. In kc Cruig . rep
resented the solicitor. Ccnh Foreman
hnd no attorney,
At 8.30 o'clock the Jury decided the
evidence sufficient to bind the Foreman
woman over to the next term of the crim
inal court. No formal verdict was agreed
