PRICE TWO CENTS DR.AGNEWH AS ARRIVED He enters upon a consultation with the others. InUnmination In Now 1'onrcil In Alitor' Condition A Moat Singular Caso "Iho Doctors Do Not Hnvo Much to Bny. "llo Is no better, nml I don't think . Hint Iio Is any worse, either," said 'Mrs. Henry Adlcr, young Maurice Adlcr's mother, this morning. Blio Is n pleasant-faced woman, nnd she seems nlmot worn out by watch ing with nil n mother's nnxlcly her sou's strugglo with denth. To stand by jils bcdsldo day liy day", tho Hired doc tors telling her after their consultation each morning that ho could not live, Iter son's cheerful hopefulness, though Ills limbs, even to his fingers nnd toes, nro paralyzed, all this tho poor woman has borne up tinder for ten days now. Tho three doctors Haync, JJIalr and Wngncr, collected about tho wounded man s bedside In tho back parlor of tho liouso, nt 008 II street, this morning at 10:30, ns is usual, for their dally consul lntlon. Adler was a trifle weaker than ycstculay. Ills temperature was a trlllo higher, giving warning of that; dreaded foo of recovery, Inflammation. Tho pulse was a trlllo less regular and flut tered more rapidly. "Itis only n ques tion of time and endurance," said Dr. llayno. Adlor was cheerful and hope ful. He has been so all tho time. Ills limbs gave no evidence of n lessening of tho paralysis. "When you lift his leg it drops llko a log," said Mrs. Adler. During tho doctors' consultation old Mr. Adlcr, Morris' father, camo into tho loom, but tho doctors had no word of encouragement for him. Dr. Agncw nnlvcd fioin Philadel phia at '2 o'clock this afternoon, nnd was Immediately joined by Dri. Bivno, McDIalr, J, Ford Thompson, Wng ner Iicrhcus. After nn examina tion duilng which It was found that Adlcr's condition was unchanged, n consultation was held, which lasted until 3:10 p. m. Dr. Agnow declared himself In en tlio accord with thu Washington physicians In tho belief that thcio was liono for Adlcr's recovery. Maurlco Adlcr's case Is one of ic marknblo uniqueness. Tho doctors liavo been quoted as saying that an In Btanco of a man similarly wounded living over four days Is uniccordcd That they all three said tills, though is now denied. The caso has nover yo been completely diagnosed. Tho buflo hasnevcr been more than approximately located. r Blnco tho nresent nhvslelaus look hold of the caso hut little If any effort has been mado to locate tho .bullet on account of the danger such nn ntlempt is fraught with, lint until tho bullet Is located it Is of course lm pnsslblo to accurately dlngnosa the wounded man's Injuries. It Is from tho paralysis symptons that tho doctors nrguo tho injuiy to tho spinal column, which would most certainly cnuso such paralysis. A doctor just now connected with tho caso mado nn attempt to locate tho bul let, piobably ono of only two such nt tempts that wcro made. Thoiciison Is that piobing for tho bullet with an or dinary steer probo would bo attended with almost Inevitable danger. Hut this doctor, Dr. Itldloy, Instead of using a stiff steel probe, used a flexible, 30ft lubber catheter. This could not possibly causo any injury nnd It Indi cated In a general way the courso of tho wound. And, oddly enough, this Indl cated that tho ball instead of going townul tho splnnl column, ns It Is sup noted to have done, and leally mutt Jmvc done to causo tho paralytic symp toms tho wounded man exhibits, went tho other way and did not injure tho spinal column at nil. Another thing about tho cave that Is peculiar, and would give foico to Dr. llldley's catheter exploration, Is tho fact that tho night of tho shooting Adlcr's Injuries wcro supposed to b'y comparatively slight, and the mninlng papers tho day after tho shooting an nounced that ho was not necessarily llnugeiously hint. Of courso they Im mediately on the succeeding day changed this, nnd made Adlcr's Injuries of tho most giavo soit. Hut tho odd part of it is that Adlcr's lnjuilcs did seem qulto Ulvlnl thonightof tho shoot ing. If paralysis was caused by an In juiy to the spinal column, such ns Adler is repoitcd to hnvo suffered, ho would liavo been Instantly killed. If ho was nunc slightly injiued, If tho damage or pressiuo on tho spinal cord vtns not sci Ions enough to cause death, but serious enough to causo paralysis, this paralysis would of courso have been ns seilous as soon ns tho wound was inado as nt nny llmo after. If the paralysis was cnuscd by tho bullet striking the spinal cord It would have began instantly nnd been ns com plete nt the Instant tho injury was in dieted ns at nnv subseuuent time. Bit It Is known positively that wldlo Adlcr was Ij Ing on tho maiblo floor of the sa loon where he was shot ho exhibited tin symptoms, oven of tho most rudimen tary toit, of nny painlysls. Ho was ex nm'Ined for symptoms of paralysis "Can you ralso your leg? ho was nsked, Adlcr raised ono nnd then the Mlior of his legs. "Can you movo your arms?" Adlcr moved his nuns. Ho could not liavo done nny of theso things If ho linil been pnrnlycd or if 1 Ids wound had been serious enough to causo tho paralysis that has since been manifested. A still moro peculiar fact Is this, which Is absolutely vouched for: Aflei Adlcr had been lcmovcd to his home, undtcsscd nnd put to bed, sumo ono railed who wished to look at tho wound, Adlcv was lying on his b.ick In bed, suuounded by ids family and filemls. Ho was asked it ho could turn over so as to nllow an examination of tho wound. Without oven tho slightest as sistance Adler turned over onto his fnco and lcmnlned in that position while tho wound was being examined. It only took 11 fow minutes, nml tho turning over would hnvo been easy enough to a man not pninlycd, but" for 0110 para lyzed as Adlcr would neccssailly have been by nn Injuiy to Ids splnnl column suincicni m causo 1110 paiaiysts 110 now exhibits, Ibis would hnvo 'been abso lutely Impossible. Borne of the doctors hnvo been quoted as faying that the bullet passed between tho splnnl coid Itself and tho largo nitery that ninsiip tin ough tho voito bine, Hut when It Is icmcinbcicd Hint this 111 Icry nnd tho spinal coid nio sldo by sldo lylug ngalnsl each other, It will ra lie seen nml tuts count not possibly nap 'ncn without lniiulti'roiio or tho other of them. If ihu nrloiy was Injiued Adler would hnvo bled to death lu ten minutes, If tho spinal mnnow or coid luidbecn lujuicd his denth would hnvo been instantaneous.

Public opinion Is very gcncinl "hero that It Is about tlmo to begin hanging whlto mur derers lu South Carolina. Thcro is no dllllculty In convicting nnd hanging ncgio lnuidcicrg; hut nlthoiigh tho criminal dockets nro tilled with cases of whlto murderers, thcro hns not been nn execution of n whlto man In tho Stato for n quaiter of a century. Tho following Is from Amos J. Cum nilngs' graphic teport lu tho New York Sun of tho proceedings lu the JIcDow trial after thu close of Tim Cnii'io's stoiy of yesterday: Jlr. Jcrvcy, tho District Attorney, went Into tho solicitor's room, brought out tho blood-stained clothes Captain Dawson woio and Dr. McDow's hat, and placed them on thu tailing near his tnblc. The spaco in Front of the jury bo.x was cleared, so that no one remained betweert the District Attorney nnd tho iuiors. The prosecuting oillccr nrrnnged Ills notes nnd confronted the jury. His right hnnd icstcd upon tho tabic nnd ills left upon his hip. Dr. McDnw pulled his gold watch from his pocket nnd glanced nt tho time. It wns high noon. Ho then rested his check unon his hnnd nnd prepared to listen to the argument, Tho District Attorney began by asking the Judgo to Include, the fol lowing In his chnrgo to tho Jury: 1. That no anger, however violent, will mltlgnto the guilt of him who snatches rt deadly weapon upon provocation, by words only, no matter how hard to ho homo, and where anger excited by blows, has, accord ing to tho frequent course ot nature, In dented with Its gratification, and blows Siren in return, liavo redoubled upon lout, malice lll lie persumed from un reasonable and disproportionate excess of punishment. 'J. That It tho act which produces death be attended with such circumstances ns In dicated a wicked, depraved and malignant spirit, the law wilt imply malice without reference to what was passing In tho pris oner's mind at the time. 3. That inalleo docs not consist alouo of a formed design to kill another. All that Is necessary Is that ho should have con- cened inu uesign 10 commie ou assault upon him or an assault and battery upon him, and lu consequence ot that lie dies. That Is minder, whether ho meant to Kill him or not. A formed design to talco life Is not necessary to make a Willing mur der. 4. 'the accused Is not to bo tho Judgo as to tho necessity of taking tho deceased's life, but tho Jury Is to judgo of ihat neces sity . 6. To iiiako out a caso of self-dofcnco two things aro necessary. First, tho cvldeuco should satisfy tho Jury that tho accused actually believed that ho was In such Im mediate danger of losing his life or sus taining serious bodily haim that It was necessary for his own protection to tako tho life ot his assailant. Second, that the circumstances lu which tho accused was placed was such ns would, In tho opinion of tho Jury, justify such a belief hi the mind of tho pcuou possessed of ordinary firmness nnd reason. It Is not a question which depends solely upon tho belief which tho accused may liavo entertained, but the question Is what Is his belief, and whether uuder all the circumstances, as they existed at the tlmn tho violence was Inflicted, the jury think ho ought to hivo formed such belief. Mr. Jcrvcy, In continuation, said that minder wns killing with malice ufoio thought. Tho defenso hero admitted, thu killing. It also admitted Hint the defendant mndo nn elf 01 1 to cruicenl the body, nnd that his iclntlons with it lady gavu him n motive for the klllltig. Thu accused sas that hu killed tho Captain In fcclf-defeno. Tho lnw does not glvo him the light to tako llfo oxcept when his own llfo is In danger or ho Is fcirful nf gicnt bodily harm. Tliolmois had to Judgo from tho evidence of tho neces sity. Thu evldcneo hciu tests upon Dr. McDow's statements alone. Thu testi mony of Captain Dawson Is foicvcrlost. Thu details llo In thu hi cast of only ono human witness, nnd that witness Is tho prisoner. His statement is to bo weighed In tho light of Jds Intciest In tho case. Ills llfo Is now ically at slnkc. No living witness can contra dict his stntcment. PIncu yoiiisclvM In his place. Would uny ono of you tell thu ti nth If that truth put tho halter aiimud your neck V Tho law makes the licensed a competent witness, but it can't make him a ci edible witness, nnd he hns shown that hu will dcpait tiom tho tiuth to benefit his enso. llccou fcttcd that ho lied because, ho thought It would help him out of his trouble. Hu acknowledged thnt he mado falso statements to tho lcpoiters concerning tho pistol, bccnuo hu thought It would bo to his nil vantage. This nvcinicnt stcmed to nettle Dr. McDow. Ho scowlid at thu spe.ikcr, but othci wise icmalucd culm and col lected. Mr, Jcrvcy nut contended thnt Dr. McDow's own testimony showed thnt tho necessity for taking llfo had not aflH'ii, The law might nccusohlm, but It could not acquit him. Ileio Mr, Jcivcy picked up Cnptnln Dawson's cane ami llcmilshcd It ucfeno tho Jury, it is 11 light Malacca, with a thin, silver head. It weighs llo nml tlueo-quniter ounces, but this fuel wns not put In evidence. "Is thnt n weapon of deadly nature?" said Mi. Jeivcy, wnving It over tho juiy. Mr. Jeivey then argued that thcie wns no fincns In tho Doctor's olllcu. Dnwsou's -wound, llko Cicsnr'B, speaks for lilmi his clothes speak forldni. Thu hole lu tho tioiiicis Indicates that thu bullet wns moving foiwnid Instead of backwmd. It Is finycd on tho sldu townul the foiwnid pait of tho tioiiscrs This is nn Indication Hint It went In that ill lection. Tho sauio thing Is shown In tho coat. Mr. Jcivcy took tho coat ami tho bloody tioifcis nnd railed tho at tendon of thejuij to tho finycd bullet holes, Then ho spie.ul tho blood) shlit befoio tho Juiy. Thu bullet hole, ho snld, was tlucu Inches hack nf the lino fiom tho shoulder down If tho bullet went into thu Captain's stdu In a slinlght lino It could not liavo touched both tho kidney nml thu rena turn. It must hnvo cut thu aoita ns well ns tho vena cava, for thoy llo side by sldo Tlio doctors say that tho kid ncy was In a normal Ktnle. Piofessor Kfnloch shows that tho coursu of tho bullet wns from behind forward. This f accounts for tho bruising of tlio kid ney nnd tho cutting of ttiu vena civn. It Is n mathematical fact that thcro wns no deflection, nnd even Dr. Michel says thcio wns none. Tho courso of the bullet gives the He to the prisoner's story of nn encounter. If Cnptnln Daw son wns striking him when ho fltcd the fatal shot and stnnding lu front of him. ns Dr. MpDow nsseits, tho bullet would hnvo entered tho left sldo. That would have been the sldu turncij toward tho accused, and not the light. No mnti strikes another with n enne In Ids right hand nnd his light sldo toward his op poncnt, unless he bo left handed. Tho bullet wound Indicates thnt Captain Dawson was probably shot ns he wns going out, while tho accused wns sitting, nt tho desk where he had flist said that he got the pistol. FINALLY THIIOWN OUT. Tho rnuious Star llonlo Cnos nro Nollo J'ronnori The famous stnr route cases wcto definitely terminated In tho Criminal Court this mcmilng.

In one of theso enscs tho Indictment wns for a number of defendants charging them with con spiracy. This hnd been tiled somo years ngo, the trlnl occupying several months. It resulted In nn ncqulttnl. Mr. Woitldngton, Judgo Hugo's predecessor In tho District At torney's ofllce, had mnde reports to the Attorncy-Gcncrnl on a number of pther enscs nlllcd to this onu nnd his Inst re port recommended thnt the cases bo tor initiated; tho ends of Justice wouldn't bo ubscrvcd by n prosecution. It would be Imposslblo to get convictions. He, thcrcfoie, nsked lenvo to nollo pros, over twenty enscs. Tho court dliectcd that tho cases bo nolle prosscd. Tho defendants lu these enscs are: John N.
