THE STEVENS CASE. .
The KvKton.ee tot the Defease Babsattted
The Defoadaet oa the Staad.
In the Stevens case, the state
closed its evidence just before the
noon adjournment yesterday, and the
aclonse began putting in i:a proof at
the afternoon session, some difficulty
being experienced in getting the at
torneys into court promptly at 2
o'clock on account of the convention,
The evidence was directed mainly to
snow tne iormer cnaractcr ot the
prosecuting witness in Belgium, and
admissions which it is claimed she
made to some of her friends when
coming here as to the business she
pursued there. This morning and
up until about 10:31), when the Mem
orial services prevented the further
proceedings, and an adjournment was
had until this afternoon, the defend
ant was on the stand, and told his
version of the matter. For the first
time since the commencement of the
trial, his wife was present, and re
mained during the whole of hi evi
dence. The Defense.
After Lcn Verdeict, John Darling,
Ferdinand Weibabl and Dr. Arp had
been examined for the defense, the
defendant was sworn, and in his own
behalf stated that he was in his 54th
year; that he was born in England
and had been Moline since about 18G7
or 1863; that he was in the army
about six years, enlisting as a pri
vate, and was mustered out a colonel.
After a numU-r of preliminary state
ments as to his previous history, the
defendant stated that he first met
the prosecutrix at Mrs. Braum's on
Thursday before the occnrrence;-that
she spoke to him by name, which
surprised him, and" he gave her
a slight push; that he saw her again
on Sunday at Rraum's, and again at
her house cn Monday about noon,
when he engaged her husband to
work on a well for him. That at
this time while Mr. Bcrkcns was in
another room she said to him: "Yon
come tomorrow." That he went the
next day to the Bcrkens home and
made "a fool of myself." All the
witness did. 'as he stated, was to
put his hand on her person atd
withdraw it, when the woman
jumped up and scratched his face,
and he got out as quick as he could;
mat she am not use a poker or any
other weapon on him. but as she
scratched him she said, ''You
- , I will make vou pay for
this;" that he sent Verdeict to settle
the matter up with her in the even
ing. and, after some dickering, the
matter was settled for $20, which
was paid to her; that on the next day
he went down to the 'squire's office
and told what had been done, and the
'squire told him that he could not
settle the case; he then went and con
sulted Mr. Wood, as an attorney.
The prosecution is assisted by
William McKniry, while Maj. Beards-
ley ana .Messrs. Jackson and Wood
are for the defense.
