FROM A TO E
MOUNT8 BOY8' MURDER.
Aiaaa at Daw) port.
The preliminary examination of
Jake and Ves Mounts, on the charge
01 muruering Joe uooaness, 01 af
falo, was opened at Davenport
vesUrdav afternoon before Jnatlee
Block, Attorneys A- P. McGuirk and
Scott as Tbeophuus appearing for the
defense, and County Attorney Cham
berlia for the state.
Varioua witnesses were examined
and described the drnnken debanch
which ended in the taking of human
life. The first witness was Dr. Ber
wald, of Buffalo. He testified to
having been called to the houseboat
where Jo Goodness lived. He found
the man dead when he arrived there.
His examination of the body revealed
the fact that there was a fracture of
the sknll extending down from and
through the parietal bone. He could
notice the indention before -he made
the examination, which wae made at
the time of the inquest. He stated
that the examination of the brain re
vealed a large blood clot, about two
inches in thickness, which had un
doubtedly caused death. He admit.
ted that he had made no examination
of the other organs of the . body, as
toe discovery 01 tne Diooa ciot satis,
lied him that it was not necessary to
look further tor the cause of the
death of Goodness.
Mrs. Bremer was next on the stand
Her hnsband is a fisherman and lives
on the island opposite Buffalo during
the summer, while she lives in Baf
falo. She saw the Mounts brothers,
Jake and Ves, meet Goodness in
Buffalo after they had returned from
the island. Jake had an oar. Ves
said to Goodness: "Lets shake hands
and settle it, Joe," and Goodness had
answered, No , it ain't set
tled." She then bad seen Jake
Mounts hit Goodness over his ' head
with an oar. She was very weak as
to the minute particulars, having
been some distance awar at the time.
James Bremer, the next witness, in
telling how the racket started, said
that four men and boys went to the
island, taking a small keg 01 beer.
They got to talking scripture. ' It
was after thev had been drinking the
beer. The discussion of scripture
seemea to make ves Biounts mad.
and this led to the fatal quarrel.
