WHO THREW THE VITRIOL.
Wood It. Hill's Trial in Progress in
the Circuit Court
Tie Vi i fer tae treratia
Xrarlrall Kxamlncd Vht Will

--It-ret ia the tae.
The case of Wood B. Hill on trial in
the ctrcu't court on a charge of mayhem
alleged to have been committed Ly
throwing vitriol in bis wife's face, is at
trading considerable attention, the court
room beiig thronged with spectators and
friends of the interested parties.
The fo lowing jury was selected: Lew
is McGr.?er. Thomas Parcell. Richard
Wilson, J. H. McPnerson, Frank Brad
shaw, Gu;t P. Kruse. Jerry Kelly. W. D
Camp, William Bailey, Walter Kimball,
J. S. Poell and Hugh McCall.
Tee first witness put on the stand was
Dr. C. B. Kinyon who testified to being
called tb! night in question to attend
Mrs. Hill, whom he found suffering from
the eCects of nitric acid which had been
thrown la fcer face. The doctor then de
scribed the effects of the acid upon her
face at the time, and the condition of her
injuries at the present time, describing
minutely tie injuries that will be perma
nent. He ho related the stories of the
affair as related by both Hill and
his wife at the time and of Hill's story of
finding the bottle which had contained
the chloroform, and Using it on tfce way
to the doctir's residence. Dr. Kinyon
also testified to having, the next morning,
ex .mined the places indicated by Hill as
where he thought he had lost the bottle
while going- fer the doctor, but found no
sign of the bottle. The witness then
testified as to the location of the house
with reference to other neighboring
houses, and to there being no evidences
of chloroform having been used in the
house that evening, akich might be ac
cojutcd for by the fact that the windows
and a doer cown sta rs were open.
In tbe opinion of the witness anyone
having chloroform thrown upon him in
that manner would have awakened, and
bad she a akened, as she claims, the
vapor arising from the nitric acid which
was thrown, would have burned her eyes
or perhaps she would not have been able
to open them at all at first.
The next witnesses examined were
Chief of Poll :e Miller and Officer Kramer,
who testified to having made a thorough
investigation of the case, finding that
Hill had purchased nitric acid at two
places name ly the Fourth avenue drag
store and at Harrison's pharmacy in Dav
enport, also of the conflicting stories told
by HOI and lis wife, and ofthe former's
arrest and detention, and of tbe identifi
cation of Hill by Mr. Harrison.
J. II. Ha-rison, of Davenport, was
next examined, and told the story of a
colored man c omlng into his pharmacy on
the evening of the crime and purchasing
the acid as d!ecribed in The Akgus at
tbe time, and also es to bis identification
of Hill as the man when the latter was
taken ovrr there by Chief Miller a day or
mere ie cot sulerable speculation as to
hat tbe theory of the defense will be.
It is understood that tbey'.wiil produce a
photograph alleged to be a former ad.
mirer of Mr. Hi 1, to wbom it is
claimed they ill attribute the dastardly
act. The explanation advanced by Hill
at the time waH burglary.
Messrs. J. B. Sax and M. C. Rice are
now sole proprietors of the London
