it probably was refreshing to hint.

JUDGE HAS TO CALL HIM DOWN
Defendant Acquitted, and the Killing
of Ma. be I Bcc-htcl Still a
Allentown. Pa.. Jan. 14. Klols Eck
stein, one of the lovers of Maltel P.ech-
tt-1, who was so mysteriously murdered
last October, Las been acquitted of
complicity in the crime, after a brief
trial in which theconduc t of the prost
cution sorelv trn-d tne patience not
only of Jude Trexler but also that of
the jurymen and counsel for the d
fense. K. J. I.icktenw alner. the dis
trict attorney of I.ehiuh county, was
so liefoetl that it was with ditli
cult.v the case was carried to a con
clusion. Several times the court inter
fereil and threatened to end the pro
ceedings fur the day unless the com
monwealth conducted its cast- in a
mere orderly manner.
Court Orlrel" the I'rocretling-t.
At one time the district attorney's
assistant in the case ttiok charge, only
to be st-t aside by the district attorney
later on. The court endured the pro
ceedings until after the jury had been
instructed to rentier a verdict of ac
quittal, when Jude Trexier adjourned
court. 1 he district attorney wanted to
iz ahead with the trial of the accused
members of the Pechtel family, but
1 ho attorney for the Pechtels protested
emphatically. The district attorney.
however, was insistent, and ordered
the names of the defendants called,
but the judsre interrupted by saying to
the district attorney.
Judge Shut OfTtlie Prosecutor.
"Io .von intend to conduct the prose
cution yourself or will you rely on as
sistant counsel. If the latter, the trial
will o on; otherwise this court will
adjourn until tomorrow monilim."
""The district attorney projioses to
coiHluet this case himself.'" muttered
"Then this court stands adjourned
until '. o'clock tomorrow moi-ninr." or
dered the jmlue.
A VKKY WK.i K CASK
Only Hope Was That Somet h 1 115 Against
Somebody -Mi;;ht llrvrlop.
lie fore court opened the district at
torney admitted that he had a very
weak case against Kckstein. and did
not expect to convict him. His hope
was that something might develop dur
ing the examination of Kck-tem that
would lead to a clue to the real mur
derer or murderers. The on-ning ad
dress of Attorney l.ul. who Is assist
ing the district attorney, was exceed
ingly brief, and did not give a strong
indication that the commonwealth x
pected t t fasten complicity in the mur
der on Kckstein.
Then followed the calling of right
witnesses. Two neighlors testitied to
the finding of the dead girl's body,
a physician described the wounds that
caused her death: Mrs. Allison Probst,
the dead girl's sister: Martha Kckstein.
the accused man's sister: Iavid Wei
senberger. who had already been tie
quitted of complicity in the murder,
and tvvoneighbors told what theyknew
of the case.
The only jtoint brought out was that
Kckstein and Maltel frequently quar
reled, and that Kckstein is alleged to
have said to lier: "You are trying
to drive me to the grave, but you may
get there ltefore me." This testimony
was given by Mrs. Probst, who said
she overheard the remark n I tout Kas
tcr last year. Weisenberger refused to
answer many questions put to him
with regard to his relations with Ma
bel. The examination of the last two wit
nesses called was prolonged Iteyond nil
reasonable time. In fact at one time
it looked as though the district attor
ney was trying the case for the de
fense, and Judge Trexler Interrupted
him. saying: "Are you trying to
establish an alibi for the defendant V"
Finally the district attorney nn
nounced that the commonwealth had
110 other witnesses to examine, and
was therefore obliged to ask that the
defendant be acquitted. Judge Trex
ler instructed the jury accordingly, and
without leaving the jury box it ren
dered :i verdict of "not guilty." Then
followed the scene in which the cour
took a hand, and adjournment was
taken for the day, three hours before
the schedule time.

he had bieu Informed by the building

Chicago was complying with the city

More Curtain Testimony iven.
Most of the testimony given pre
vious to the mayor s apiiearance was
about the asbestos curtain that
wouldn't come dowii. Wilson Kerr
said the asbestos curtain was worked
by an endless wire table and weights
run by hand. John S. McCloskey said
he considered the Iroquois theater be
low the average from the standtoint

tain might have caught on the swing

know that it did.
He Saw the Curtain Stop.
A. J. llawes. a stage hand, saw the
asltestos curtain come down and sWp.
On one side it was sixteen feet from
the stage and on the other side eight
feet. He ran to the guide wire and
tried to shake it loose. The curtain
was "bellied" out. He could not tell
what obstructed the curtain, for the
emoko was dense. Several nien were
trying to get the curtain loose. Some
of them had sticks or polos.
