ChioaOO. Not. 19 The publie does not
seem to be as interested ia the testimony for
the defense as it was ia tbat for ths prossou
tion, it tb small attendance at court yester
day was any criterion, for there were many
vacant seats. Ibis was ths more noticeable
as it was tbe first full day for the defence
the real beginning, as might be said, Satur
day's testimony being rather ot a preliminary
sort. Tb first witness for the defense wa
Peter Koclt, with whom Kunsi boarded pre
vious to April H last. He lives a few blocks
from the Carlson cottage, and the teetimony
was given to eiiow why C'oughlin and Kunt
were en in that neighborhood in April and
May. The witness swore that Couhlin was
on the track of Kuuz for Ibe purpose of
getting certain papers from him in connec
tion wiih th Shufeldt distillery explosion;
tbat tbe detective finally got K'inti drunk
and obtained tbe papers. Tins was April 8.
A Difficulty Iw Date.
The latter dale witneae, wbo is about
Kunze's lite, swore tbat he and Cougblin
walked to Ashlanl avenu along tbe east
ide of Lincoln avenue, ami tbat Coughlin
simke to several acquaintance as they
walked, notably a man oa tbe front ot a
street car; the man wa smo-in a cigar.
Here was a discrepancy in dars, for a wit
ness for tbe prosecution, one K -it tier, a jew
eler, had (worn tbat on May 4 be was smok
ing a cigar en the front platform ot a street
car when be saw Cougblln and Kuoxe walk
ing toward Ashland avenue on Lincoln.
Tb t'nkaowa's ldeutiflcatlafc
Capt. Scbsack being in court with
bis notes be was put oa th
stand to impesch Dinan's description of th
man wbo drove th white horse rig from
the latter' (table. Scbaack produced bi
notes, and tbey showed a slight discrepancy
between the descriptions given by Dioaa
in court and that as first given to CapU
Scbaack. It did not amount to much, aad
it cams out in cross-examination that it was
partly supplied by Den Coughlin.
Anatner Discrepancy la Date.
Tb next attack on th prosecution's testi
mony was made in tb direction ot proving
that Saloonkeeper Niemaa was mlstakea as
to tbe identity of the two men wbo took a
drink of wine with O'Sullivaa on th night
of May 4, about 10 o'clock. For this pur
pose James Hyland, a man four inches taller
than Coughlin, but with the sams general
appearance and a similar mustacb,
was put on th stand. He swore
that 011 tbe nigbt of May 5 not
May 4 he, with his cousin, Jeremiah
Hyland, a man of the same height as Kunie,
hsd been to see O'Sullivan about getting a
job, and after talking it eTer tbey went to
Nieman's saloon and took driuks of sherry;
it was about 9:30. Tba witness was a little
off in hi dates on cross-examination, as be
said tbat be remembered tbe date s wsll be
cause he firt resd of Cronm's disappearance
a week after bis call on O'Sullivan and
thought at tbe time tbat hs bsd been in tb
vicinity of th "Carlson cottage'' at tb tim
ef tb murder. The difficulty for tb de
fense here ie that tbe Carlson cottage was
not msntioned in connection with toe mur
der for two weeks after tbe doctor's disap
peerancv Jeremiah Hyland was tbe next wituess,
and bis testimony waa substantially tbe
same as tbat given by his cousin. Kunse
was called up to stand by th witness' aid
to afford th jury an opportunity of noticing
tbelikeneee between tbe two men. Tbey
were about the aame height With the excep
tion of tbe discrepancy a to tb Carlson
cottage in James' testimony, tbe two cousins
stood th crow-xaminatioa very wall, and
told their stories in a (traigbtforward man

Mike Wbelan, tbe ex-detective and part
ner of Dan Coughlin, was next called, and
testified that on th night of May 4 he was at
and about tb Chicago avenue station from
8 o'clock until midntcbt From 8 till Id tb
witness saw Coughlin seserai times, and at
no time up to tbe last-mentioned hour was
Coughlin out of hi tight for mors than half
an hour. Tb wltne-a, together with Cough

saloon and bad a drink. He was very posi
tive ss to the date.
Ou tbe cros-xmination Whelsn said be
did not tell tb coroner's jury that tbe lost
time be saw Coughlin on tb night ot May 4
was 7 o'clock.
A Peculiar Search for "Smith. "
The witness said that he and Coughlin
were cent to search for Smith on May 7.
While out Cougblln stopped and talked with
a man whom Coughlin ubquutly told
tb witnese was Smith, tbe driver of tbe
white horse. Why Cougblln did not arrest
Smith, witnese could not toll. Tbe witness
was suepended from tb force oo Msy ?6, tbe
day of Coughlin' arrest.
"Did you not, on tbe night you were eus

Coughlin about tba station between 9 and 10
