Accused New Yorker Showed
No Hostility to Mrs. Beach,
Doctor Says at Trial.
Other Witnesses Testify to
Hearing Screams in House
Prisoner Sits With Wife.
AIKRV, a. C, Feb. 4 Mr. nd Mrs
Frederick O. Ileach sat together to-day
In the .lken County Court Hotltt and
heard the prosecuting attorney attempt
to prove to a Jury of countrymen that
the New York sorlety man had made
a murderous attack upon his wife with
a penknife in Aiken last winter.
Beach and his wife did not show any
deep concern In the proceedings and at
times gayly rhat.cd with each other
and friends, who sat near them.
Eleven witnesses were called by the
Htate, and a slow start was made In
tin lr examination. Prosecutor Uunter
directed his efforts to attacking the
story told by Beach, and substantiated
by his wife, to the effect Ilia: Mrs.
Ileach had been attacked by negio
when she left the house to give her
dogs an airing
lr. Hastings Wymau and his son, lr
Marian Wymau, who examined Mr'.
Daach'l wound so. in after sue was cut,
expressed the opinion that the stab
was InfllCttd from behind. The theory
of the prosecution Is that Beach at
tacked his wife while she was running
an ay from him.
Mr. and Mrs. Bagoh entered the court
room at 9 O'clock. Then they had to be
assisted through a crowd of spectators
that packed the eorrMOTI and the hear
ing room which Is email,
morbidly curious had been waiting for
admittance since 1 o'clock.
Mrs. Beach ami becomingly gowned . i
brown coat suit and a toque to match,
rihe showed no signs of nervousness and
Beach was apparently perfectly at ease.
Ho helped his wife and Miss Marlon
Ifolllne of New York, one of the Wltlli ax
es for the defense who accompanied lie
Beeche, to Ohatra and then conferred
with his attorney. Mrs. James H. V.
Taylor, Mrs Beach's sister, sat with the
defendant and his party, and nearby
were Mrs Colvln iseiin, Mrs. Joeepfi
Harrlman, Mr. and Mis. Harry Holllm
jr.. Rdward Hmltlt and J. m. Lyoiie, all
prominent noclety paopla
The cant was opened t W o io k and
the Jury quickly eocurnd, sloven ul
.he men accepted were farmers, one a
country merchant and the others cotton
mill operatives. Tho Court daalgnated
the first man chosen to act as foreman.
While the indLutuient was being read
Mrs. Beaoh kopt hor eyes intently up i i
Proieoutor Ounter. Her face did not
change expression when he ranched the
word "did assault with murderous in
tend." Ilea h rested his chin on hi
hand aid gaged straight before him.
He was not formally arraigned, tang
being spared the humiliation of stand
ing in the prisoner's Jook.
Prosecutor Ounter opened his .-. i.
by having tin- stenographer read the
i stimmiy of Miss l.ull.ih Wymatl, w il
ls III. The leatlntony Waa taken yes
terday. Miss Wyrna'i nrai examined In Ihs
presence of Prnaecutor fDunter and Col
Henderson, counsel fur the defense. She
t stilled that on the night 'if Ft.'. X
she was in her bad in tin- front room it'
her home, which Is directly across the
street from the assault gcelie, When she
heard two screams. Sue went to the
open nrtndOW ami tried to local the
source ttf the crlev
Peeing, no one, she returned lo boj
and .t few minutes later she heard two
more screams. Thll time she sa'.v a rna.i

of the peg eh home. When ihe eho ited

John Paul Farrell
Confession Clears the Mystery of
Famous Flat-House Murder of a
Year Ago, and Also the Bomb Sent
to Judge in West Side House. I
Reconstructs Infernal Machine in
Police Headquarters Under the
" Third Degree," Then Worn to
the Verge of Hysteria Breaks
Under Dougherty's Inquisition.
John Paul Haircll, worn to the verge of hysteria by the unreltnttng
processes of the police "third degree" pursued for twenty-four hours,
confessed to Deputy Commissioner George S. Dougherty to-day to bfJAf
the infernal machine murderer.
He aald that be had made the bomb wMeh killed Grace Wei
ker, sometimes knows ga Helen Taylor, In ker apartaseate at Mas
log West seient j-se?enth street, just year age jeetcrdaj.
He made and sent Ihe engine of murder that exploded la the
apartments of Judge Otta Boeslaky, No. ell Waal One Hundred
and Tenth street, 0a March IC of last year.
He contrived Ihe mechanical bomb which exploded laat Slav
day night In nn apartment at o. 1175 Faltci grange, the Bronx,
laatantly killing Mr. Madeline Herrera, blinding her hatband,
Bernard.., and seriously wounding Mine Sarah Hoagbtmaa.
Farrell's actions and wonts during the making of his confession were
at times those of a madman. He told conflicting details, some of them
of Ihe most circumstantial character; contradicted himself the next mir
ute or refused altogether to elucidate some of his statements. But out
of the whole mass of the man's mental wanderings Dougherty picked a
sufficient number of facts, capable of verification from other sources, to
convince him that h'arrell was guilty of the murder of the Walker woman
and of Mrs. Herrera, as well as the
Farrell, after many hours, told what he said was the true story of
why he tried to kill Judge Hnsalsky. It was to avenge a boon com-
panion'l sentence of thirty-nine years in Sing Sing, imposed by Rosalsky
because oi a burglary amounting to $16.
Ihe OOnftMion of I'arrell, wholly verified by the records of the
Courts, haJ it ih.il lie and Joseph Harvey, alias De Hose, alias the "Bull,"
and a Harry Hartman entered the apartment of Peter Johnson at No. 342
liast One Hundred and Second street
stole three gold rings and a cheap
caught but Farrell escaped.
"On Dec. 8 Hartman pleaded
charge and was sentenced to an indeterminate term of between nine and
ten years. On Dec. 28 Harvey took the same plea, but because of two
prior convictions on the same charge Judge Rosalsky sentenced him to
thirty-nine years, practically the rest of his life.
"I thought of that boy in for life for a $16 robbery," said Farrell,
and I made up my mind RosaNky was a devil. I studied for years how
to make a perfect bomb and then I tried to kill him."
Farrell at first said that Grace Walker was his daughter and he gave
i lie name of Kid Walker, murdered by Henry l.e Strang in 1887, as Ihe
man who caused her downfall. Then lie changed his story and said that
lie iiad sent the infernal machine to Mrs. Walker because he was wildly
in love with her .iiid was jealous of the attentions of other men.
