The witness had already disrovered tint his reputation was at stake, both as an 'i(rt?-er and as a man. When the court abruptly. Bad, to his plain relief, ad j"iirned. be had already tullen into one trap, and h;ul iveen w.irnod of another that was preparing tor him He return'd to his place this morning; arith an anxious look on his face and a manner that showed anything but confidence. <>n the direct examination he had testified about his baviag gOBS to the norden hons* on August I, IM*, which was ? Thursday, |asf after tho Burden had been discovered. He told of a eon venatma he had with l.i'zio Ronlen, of his .ae*arch of tin* premises and af his havini found in tho .ellar two axes, two hatchets, one of th*ru having a cluwhead, and a rusty, lust-covered hatehct li. ail, the handle ut which was liroken olT close to the non. The axes and hatchets wore lound with I*riil-_-*r*t Sullivans assistance. He had himself come across the hatchet-head later in another p'.u." in the cellar. lb* l.iun.l it in u little box OB a shell. There were a few other tools in tho I ox. What they were lu* could not remember, though be thought then were soma chisels arnon.; t'uciii. The box and all the tods, Lacladlag the hatchet-head, wen* covered with a heavy dust, tho most of which in his opinion had b.s*n collected from an ash-heap near by. It is this hafehet head with which, senor?lag to the theory of tho prosecution, the marden were committed. Fleet's conversation with Lizzie, narrated yea* terday, was partlealatiy noticeable, because ha said a|?. told liim that when her father came inf* the houae that tnorninir, just befoie ll o'clock, sha Advised hiM to li*' down and rest on the sofa. Th? is new evidence, and evidence of considerahlo importance. Nobody els.' har* testified that Lizzie said she had M advised her father, and Fleet's ?tori of St?lt **!u* said to him agrees perfectly with that of all tin* other witnesses u to what she said to tlnin, except in thin solitary par? ticular. Te all of them, in-luding Fleet, she said sh,* thought Mis. Borden waa out of the house; that Mrs. Morden had received a note that morn injj tram a sick friend, and had thereupon gonn i ut. To ali ol th.- witnessea, including Fleet, sha said that just before 11 o'clock she went out ta tin* burn to net i piece of trna; that she re? mained there from twenty minutes to half an hour, and returned to lind her father lying dead na the sofa in the sitting-room. HONISICANCB Ot KI.KKTS TESTIMONY. Now. the sienilicanoao of Fleet's additions*, point that Lizzie said she advised her father to lie down on that sofa and rest himself, lie* in tbe sugges*. timi it makes of an admissioii on her pan that by g?*tt,ing him on the sofa she artfully placed him ia her power. When Bridget went up stairs into tha mi", a few minutes before ? i, ?;> loft Lizzie iron? ing at a table in the Jining-room and Mr. Borden sitting in a rocking-chair at an open window In the sitting-room. It Lizzie did tell Fleet thal she had suggested to lier father that he lie down on the sofa and rest himself, it looks like an a I inission that she had decoyed liim to bis death. Ile wa* an old man of seventy. He may naya fallen quickly asleep, and it tits the prosecutiong theory to believe that h.* did, and that by being taken asleep h.* was (|tiickly and without res? lance dispatch.*.!. It aids to explain the most improbah'.s pojnt jn tjie prosecution's ease, for if Lizzie is tlie murderer, in the twelve or fifteen minutes that elapsed between Bridget's depart uro for the attic und her coming down again in re? al ons.* to Lizzies call, Lizzie must have got her? self dressed either in the bloody clothes in whioh ahe had killed her mother, or in '.onie other cos? tume Haw that worn by her when Bridget left the room : sh.* must have committed the second tot of murder: she must have undressed and prac? tically taken a bath, aM in twelve or fifteen minutes. It waa a good deal of business for a young woman inexperienced in affa.ra of that load.
