TRIAL OVER TODAY
John Findley Murder Case Will
Be in Hands of Jury This '
INSTRUCTIONS OF THE C0UB.T
Final Argument i Made by State's
Attorney H. A. ' -f'
Final argument in the John Find
ley murder ease is in progress in the
eircuit court this afternoon. State's
Attorney II. A. Weld having the clos
ing. C- .1. S'earle, for the defense,
occupied the wlu le of the morning
and part of the afternoon ses
sions, devoting his argument princi
pally to interpretation of the law of
self defen.-e and criminal intent, hold
ing that, as Findley, as shown by the
evidence, was not in possession of his
normal state of mind, owing to over
indulgence in intoxicants, and there
fore could not have had any intent.
It is expected that the court will
instruct the jury before the closing of
the afternoon session, in order that
the deliberate n on a verdict may be
Claim It rialn Cxne of Murder.
II. . Olmsted, assistant prosecuting
attorney, had the opening at the be
ginning of the arguments to the jury
begun on the convening of the session
yesterday afternoon. He reviewed the
law irovernin"' the crimes .of
murder and manslaughter. He termed
the killing of Uradley plainly a case of
murder, taking the testimony of .In
seph Fee'ey, not an iota of which, he
contended, had been shaken bv the de
fense, as a fair recital of the circum
stances leading up to the tragedy.
Uradley was attempting nothing more
than a law-abiding citizen should do
under such circumstances attempt
ing to have Findley taken in hand by
the police authorities before he did
lamare with the revolver with which
he was armed. When he pursued the
defendant south on Fourteenth street
it was not with Ihe intent of assailing
him or forcibly disarming him. but to
keep an eye on him until such time as
the police authorities arrived and took
him in hand. Uradley was a born lead
er, a courageous young man; fearless
when he had a duty to perform. He
iw a duty sni'.l was conscientiously
endeavoring to pertorm it tne nignt
he was shot down in cold blood by
Who Fin l Shot In Doubt.
('. U. Marshall, of counsel for the de
fense, followed. He challenged any
member of the jury, or any Jiving per-
on, to say under oath that Findley
tired tin shot that caused the death
of Uradlev. There had been a scuf
fle between the men. according to the
testimony of not less than four wit
nesses. It began in front of Decker's.
aloou. on the outside of which de
fendant was standing molesting iw
one when approached by Uradley and
commanded to deliver over the revol
ver that he had in his hand. For some
minutes there was an angry conversa
tion. It had grown so stormy that
Saloonkeeper Decker feared there was
going to be trouble anil withdrew to.
his place of ousiness anil locked up
for the night to avoid becoming invol
ved. It was manifest that Findley was
seeking to avoid trouble by the fact
that he retreated. He was heard to
hout at Uradley when the latter was
pursuing him: do way and let me
1 lone." Hut Uni'Mey had made up his
mind that lie was going to have that
revolver or know the reason why. as
ndicated in a remark in his flying
tatement: "I went after him." Urad
lev. not Findlev. was the aggressor.
Findlev was overtaken at the rear of
f the Industrial home. Uradley grab
bed hold of him. There was an ex-
hange of blows, and the men running
round in a circle. Fin. Hey s face bore
vidence tin following morning of
having been assaulted. Uradley took
hold of the revolver, and Mr. Marshall
wanted to km w how there was any
way of telling whether the shot was
fired- accidentally, whether Uradley
pulled the trigger while scuffling at
tempting to wrest the weapon from
ndley or whether the latter fired the
hot in defending himself.
Selr-Defc-Dtie an Inntlnt-t. ,, ,
Findley was drunk and Uradley
knew it. Findlev had reached a state
f intoxication w here he no longer was
onscious of his actions, but self -de
fence was instinctive with all man
kind. He did not fire his revolver until
he was forced to do so to protect him-
elf against the assault of a bigger
an.l st ronger and sober man. Thepros-
cution had scoured the cities of Moline
nd Hock Island, the whole county.
in fact, in a vain effort to find single
Hron who would say aught of th-
haraeter of Findley. .Finally one man

Findlev had ln-en a good man an 1 the
best criterion of his character was hi
aithf illness to his grayhaired widowed
mother, who has been by his Mle
through the whole trial.

My baby had eczema so bad that its
head was a solid mass of scabs, and
its hair all came out. I fried many
remedies, but none seemed to do any
permanent good until I used DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve. The eczema is
cured, the scabs are gone and the lit
tle one's scalp is perfectly clean and
healthy, and its hair is growing beau
tifully again. I cannot give too much
praise to DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve.
