ProvinE Up A Plot To Mir- Her Jones. Insanity Easily Established By; the Defense,, ' " ' ; . Tho innucflt upon tho remains of Mrs. Jones and preliminary investiga tion of defoudant began at 9 this morn ing. The iollowing is the testimony so far ; ' Frank Doran: Knew tho deceased Mrs. F. K Jones and Leicester. My brother aud myself own the building in which sho had her room. , I rented her the room about last December, they liavo had tho room since. Mrs. Jonc paid rout. Levi Leicester occu pied room with her. There was a bed iu tho middlo of the room. ' Leicester I think had au architects offlco. Don't know whothor she staid thero or not. Her husband lived iu South Dallas Leicester never paid tho rent. I rent ed two rooms to Mrs. Jones, and every timo I went there she was thore. I went thero about once a .r.ontb. Henry Frame : I am a hack driver I know Vauston when I see him. Know Leicester same way. Know Mrs. Jonos and know defendant, I hauled Mrs. Jones, Vaustoii and Lei costor from St. George hotel the Thurs day night of the Reunion.? Vanston cjamo up and A6ked mo if .liwamod a load. I said cortainly. He told me to drive up abovo St. James hotel. There Lcicostor, Mr. Jones and Vanston got iu. Thoy wero in front of tho public library, aud told mo to driro them to tho court houso. All threo came in. This was bctweon 11 aud 12 o'clock at night. Etaycd a fow minutes and camo back aud told mo to drivo them to Mayor's oflice. Thero Vanston got out aud went iu. Whoo ho camo back Mrs. Jones got out and went in. Thoy camo back got iu and told mo to drive thorn out to the house (Jones) out Ervay street AVe found the houso. When wo got thero I stopped and Mrs. Jones got out and weut on the porch and said something to Mr. Jones vho was lying on tho front gallery. Sho thon went on into the' house. Sho cither called him or said some thing and Jones got up and went into the houso. About tho timo ho got back to tho back yard sho commenced screaming " murdor ! " etc. She seemed like she wri"" moving. The Improssion on my mind wn that sho was not very badly irighteuod While sho was screaming Vanston (aid to mo, "Run around thero ! " I said, " Do you take mo for a d d bol? 1 haven't any business in Omt man's yard. I am driving tt.1 hi. k ' Then they both jumped out aud c-rkod the gato open. One of lUun, I ti.i;.k U was Vanston, picked up .'.metl'iug, 1 think apaliug, and rushed around thero. When they got around buck cf tl-o 1 ouse whoro tho halloir' whs I i -urd Mr. Jones holler "m Ji'kr," thief," or some thing liko t .at. Then Mr. Vanston camo around first to whore I was, working with his arm, aid 1 noticed there was blood on hl.n. I saw no bruise or hurt on him. He complained of nono. I said to him, "This wont do. Thoncighbois are all getting up. There will bo trouble ovor this thing." He made mo no an swer When they came aronnd Mrs. Jones camo aronnd with them, viz: Vanston and Leicester. Then Mr. Jones came either around or through the house and stood on the porch where the hollowing first com menced. Leicester cried " Shoot him, d- n him, shoot him I " Jones said to Vanston MD n you, I hare got your pedigree. This aiut the first time yon have iuterfcrred between a man and his wife. I told you not to come on this place before now. Yon have come back here to murder me," or something like that. " This is not the first time yon have intorferred be tween a man and his, wiio but tho third timo. I bare got your pedigroe. When Mr. Jones said this to Mr. Vanston, Mrs. Jonos ran up to Mr. Jones and said: "If you say that again to Mr. Vaustou, I'll kill you, you old bugger t Mr Vanston is a gontlomau." Sho was pointing her finger at him. There was a pistol found in tho hack after the occurrence. I drovo Vanston to the Arlington Hotel. lie tried to stand me off tor hack face, but finally paid. When I was' driving back up town Leicester stopped me and reached in tho hack, and picked up tho pistol from uutier tho cushion, and said this is what sho had and forgot it. Jones said to Mrs. Joucs at tho houso: "I told you no longer than to-day, you had to cither tako VaiiBtou or me, and you said you would take mo: now you havo gone off and . come back this way with these men to murdor mo. " Thou sho said something about his choklug her and be sold; "I nevorlaid tho weight of my hand on you in my life. " I let them out at tho same placo they got in. Sho tried to got to stay all night at two noighbors' houses, but they re fused to let her. I saw her go up over the Public Library. D. L. Stewart : Knows all tho par ties. Mr. and Mrs Jones lived back of me. I wus at home night of tho dis turbance. About 11 o'clock heard fuss over thero, and then a man and woman talking iu a low tone, at Jones' house- Then a littlo bolore 1 o'clock heard Mrs. Jonos scroam. Sovoral licks ibl lowed and Mr. Jones hollowed ";iur der,"and called my name three orfour times. Mrs. Jones said "Kill him! kijl him I tho d m s n of a b h I " Then they went round to tho front part of of tho houso, whore 1 heard nothing. Sho camo to my houso and wanted to stay all night. told her I'd rather not under the circumstances. I have a gato to my back alley and both gates wero open next morning aud tracks of a man and woman around uiy gate, back of Jonos' houso. Tho tracks went ovor into Jones' lot I saw blood on the back porch. There was a pieco of 4-inch flooring with blood and hair on the tongue part of it. Jonos was badly bruised on tho head and arms, Had a wound over his eyo. Have soon him often since the trouble Have kuowu him for eleven years, Good character for pcaco. Sinco ho was beat up I have not considered him in his rlbt mind. Boforo this camo up I havo. often scon Vanston and I.clrpster at Johpr' house in his absence. I told Joucs this alter the diiliculty. Told him 1 heard his wifo associates wero bad women. Ho scorned away off when talking about it. Could not talk threo minutes on sumo subject Was nervous, excited and would 'not oat; complained of burning up insido. He said that Vanston, Leicester and sho would kill him, that sho carried a six-shooter, i couiu not get mm quint Ho could not tell his attornoy about tho case aud I had to do it for him. Came to my houso about 8 o'clock tho night before tho killing; MA A .t was so excuoa no couiu not sit more than a ininuto without getting up. lie talked about his wlfo. Said he had seen Vanston and Lei cester out rldlbg with her In a two horse kuggy en Ervay streeu Had seen them twice that night. I think he was insane front what I have seen. JoLn Schilling was next examined. If had olf.ee across hall from rooms occupied by Leicester and Mrs. Jones and saw Vans ton there o'ton. Saw Leicester and Vanston there after C killing. Leicester was locked inside and rcftsed to let Sheriff Lewis iu The sheriff tried my key and Leicester then let him In. Be refused at tint to give the keys to the sherif .

Only knew him sinco August 22. Ho talked only about tho troublo butweou him and his wilo. The idea soproy.od upon ' his miud that Vaustou and his wife contemplated murdering him that bo could not talk about anything olso. He frequently told me that he loved his wifo, but thought sho had formed a couspii acy against him. Ho thought that sho was too intimato with Van ston. My opinion is that ho was In sane and that his insanity .was brought on by his ideas abont Vanston and bis wife. Mr. Jones that night came aud sat down by tho sido of my wife. Sho was very much alormod. Ho went to bed at my houso about midnight. I got up at 5 o'clock in tho morning aud bo was gone. Ho had been taking his meals with mo.
