Miss Dunlap's Lawyers Seek to

Aledo, 111.. Dec. 2:1. Miss Tona Dun
lap's testimony at the inquest on the
death of Miss Allie Dool. as well as
the to-timony of Miss Margaret Mil
ler on the same occasion, became the
subject of ;i vigorous argument in
court, vesterdav. Miss Dunlap's coun
sel sought to have the written testi
mony on tile in the coroner's office
introduced as evidence, that of Miss.
Miller as corroborative of her tcsli-i
mony in court Saturday', and that of
Miss Dunlap as proof that her de

The point raised by Attorney Searle
in his reply to the objections by At
torney (iraham was a fine one. as law
yers say. and in direct conflict with
the generally accepted rules govern
ing evidence. Mr. Searle admitted as
much, but pointed out to the court
Jhat the rule was not inflexible. Judge
Kamsay reserved his decision on the
admissibility of Miss Miller's state
ment, before the coroner's jury, but
barred out the evidence of Miss Dun
lap as improper.

It was the evident purpose of the
defense to strengthen the testimony
of Miss Miller in the minds of the
jury by introducing her statement at
the inquest. The stiite will undoubt
edly ;H tempt to impeach her testi
mony 011 the vital question whether
Miss Dool helped herself to the choc
olate creams which brought about
her death, or was handed the poison
ed can ly by Miss Dunlap.
Attorney Searle argued that Miss
Miller's statement before the cor
oner's jurv was in no essential par
ticular different from' her testimony
during the present trial, ami that as it
was made prior "to the contradictory
statements attributed to her by the
state it ini)' clearly represented her
knowledge of the facts.
The point was argued during the
absence of the jury and at the close
of a short session of court in the af
ternoon. A delayed train made it im

Help Miss Dunlap's Case.
Two witnesses contributed testi
mony yesterday of a character calcu
lated td strengthen Jliss Dunlap's
ca.se with the jury. The first was Miss
Lizzie; Morrison, second cousin of the
defendant. Miss ' Morrison went to
the depot on A up;. 7 with n sister, who
was going away on the 5 o'clock
train. On that evening the witness
s tinted she saw Miss Dunlap and Miss
Miller at the dewt in the waiting'
"Was there any time while you
with in the dcot," asked Attorney
Searle, "when the defendant and Miss
Miller were separated?"
"They were not apart from each
other at any time." replied Miss Mor
rison in positive tones. "I was in a
position to sec them all the time, and
I know they stood or sat close by
each other all the time."
It is a theory of the prosecution
that. Miss Dunlap put strychnine in a
chocolate cream while she was at her
home, and hid it in some manner un
til the opportunity arrived when she
could place it in the sack of candy
the bought at Miner's store in the af
ternoon. The defense, contends that
this would have been impossible with
out Miss Millwr detect in the act.
Samuel Morrison, another second
cousin of Miss Dunlap's. added
strength to the contention of the de
fense that, the defendant was slightly
poisoned from eating of the candy
which caused Miss Dool's death. The
state maintains that Miss Dunlap's
illness on the night, of Aug-. 7 was
Contradicts Dr. Itrownlnjr.
Mr. Morrison drove Dr. llrowning to
the Dunlap residence on the night of
Miss Dool's death, and after the phy
sician had administered medicine to
the defendant, took him back to I-'c-lix's
store in his buggy.
"Did you ask Dr. ltrowning about
the condition of Miss Tona when you
drrve away from the house?" asked
"Yes, I asked him, "How is Tona.""
was the reply.
"What was the rest of the conver
sation?" "I asked him if she had taken any
poison, and he replied. 'She has evi
dently got some, but there is none in
Mr. Morrison's testimony was con
tradictory of Dr. r.rowning's state
ment while on the stand for the state,
and was the first evidence of a posi
tive character on the subject.
The defense called Kdward Dice, the
court stenographer who took the tes
timony of the witness at the prelim
inary examination and the hearing of
the motion for bail, ami sought
through him to lay a foundation for
the impeachment of the testimony of
a number of the state's important
witnesses. Tlie testimony of Frank
A. Miner, who sold the candy to Miss
Dunlap; Dr. I'.rowning. Dr. . I. A. rat
ion, of Chicago, and I!. K. -Felix was
attacked and, a series of iiiestions
were asked whether these witnesses
made certain replies while on the

State's Attorney Craham is not and

Felix, son of I J. F. Felix, as has been
reported, with the object- of making
him n witness in the trial of Miss
Dunlap. He has not had detectives
on the trail of the young man. as re

his address at any time by incpiiring
of his father. Young Felix left Aledo

Dool, and is at present employed as a

DEARTH OF BUSINESS
IN lOfjAL POLICE COURT
The mills of justice are- grinding
with a scant, grist just now, and the
principal occupation of the local mil
lers consists in looking out of their
respective windows at the crowds of
Christmas shoppers in the streets.
This is the one season of the year
when the people as a whole have
something that, takes precedence in
their minds over their personal sqnal
bles, and; the justices of the peace and
the lawyers are given n forced vaca
tion. The police, also, are finding
very little to engage their attention
beyond making- reports, keeping up
the fire at the station and dabbling in
CoDftths. Colds and Constipation.
Few people realize when taking

opiates which are constipating, be

children. Foley's Honey and Tar
contains no opiates, is safe and sure
and will not constipate. All druggists.

TO ELIMINATE ALL
Nothing Relating to Religicn Al
lowed in Nebraska
AS RESULT OF COURT DECISION
Against the Heading of the Bible
Lincoln, Xeb.. Dec. 'J3. As a icsilt
of the recent supreme court dei-irm
against the reading of the Dible and
ringing sacred songs in the public
bibools of Nebraska, application has
been made to the county attorney at
Lincoln to prohibit the rendition of
Christmas carols and semi-relig!ous
songs in one of the district schools of
this county during school hours. John
Chriss, of Princeton, is the applicant,
and he demands that an action be
brought aguinst the teacher and direc
tors. No Sympathy With Com'alnt-
The county attorney told Chriss he
had no sympathy with his complaint
and he would not interfere. In the
meantime O. K. Kretsinger, a Iieatrlce
lawyer, has given notice that he will
apply for a rehearing of the Dible
case. Kretsinjier's brief is in the na
ture of a challenge to the court to en
force its mandate. He says (,4t;r
schools of the li.tWMi in the state are
ignorlug the decision, and practically
asks the court what it is going to do

EVADES COURT'S DECREE
The I'nion Klectric Telephone Kr

fectly willing to allow the permanent
injunction obtained by Fred Appel
ipiist to prevent the lying of the con
duits in the alley in the rear of his
property at Third avenue and Scen

iiist to draw- whatever satisfaction
he is able from a nominal victory in
the matter. A right of way hus been
secured through Ihe lot adjoining on
the opposite side of the alley and the
construction forces are now at work
putting in the underground work by
that route. It is gratifying to note
that thhe company lias found a way
to surmount the difficulties placed in
its way by a private, citizen who
would take adwintage of a mere tech
nicallity of the law to prevent others
from enjoying a public utility.
