Expresses Indifference as to Hi. Pate Polica Prevent the Reopening of His Wounds. With bandages covering his wrists and another about his neck. Henry Huth. the slayer of Mrs. Agnes Levy, was taken from the Emergency Hospital to the District morgue this morning. in order that he might be present at the Inquest and hear what was said about the tragedy. In order to prevent a repetition of his attempt to reopen the wounds the police had him handcuffed. Precinct Detective Grant and Sergt. Hartley of the first precinct had him In charge. The party reached the morgue shortly before 10 o'clock. the hour set for the hearing, and the prisoner, grinning as if something amused him, was ushered into the room where the jurors were seated and where the witnesses were afterward exam ined. He seemed highly amused at the pro ceedings, and when asked if he desired to make a statement his response, given by a nod of the head, was In the affirmative. In response to Dr. Glazebrook's questions. after he had been advised that what he would say might be used against him, he said he wanted to make his statement un der oath. The prisoner was given a position near the coroner, as it was realised that he would be unable to speak loud enough to be heard across the room. After he had attempted to arrange a bandage that had slipped he began in a low tone to speak of another occupant of rooms in the E street house. "That woman upstairs." he said. "Two men drinking beer. One from Soldiers' Home." "You'll have to speak a little louder," Dr. Glazebrook advised him. "If that ain't loud enough," said the pris oner with some display of anger, "you can go to h-; all of you can go there." This seemed to relieve the prisoner and he turned from the acting coroner and was led to the cell in front of the building. To Precinct Detective Grant he said: 'I don't care what you do with me now. You can take me out and hang me if you wish." Makes Effort to Procure Revolver. Yesterday at the hospital Huth motioned to the detective to indicate that he ex pected to end his life on the scaffold. While under treatment there he requested the policeman on guard to let him have his pistol, and, it is stated, made an effort to get the weapon from the policeman's pocket. In the room in which the murder was committed the police found life insurance papers showing the woman had her life In sured in the Metropolitan company for $164. The policy had been paid up, and this money will be used in defraying the funeral expenses. After the jury had heard several wit nesses tell of the -crime and the circum stances under which it was committed, a verdict holding Huth for the grand jury was rendered. He was then taken to po lice headquarters, where he was- measured and photographed for the gallery and was afterward taken to jail. Mrs. Roth Testifies. Mrs. Florence V. Roth, who told the jury that she occupied the third floor at 1217 E street northwest, the rooms over those oc cupied by Huth and Mrs. Levy, was the first witness examined by the coroner. "Did you know the woman who was killed?" she was asked. "Yes, sir," was her response. "What was her name?" "She told me her name was Agnes Levy." She pointed out the prisoner as being Henry Huth. She did not know his name until recently. When he moved to the house, about five or six weeks ago, she was told that he was a son of Mrs. Levy. Two weeks ago last Sunday, Mrs. Roth told the jury, Mrs. Levy came running to witness' room and said Henry was trying to kill her. She said she was afraid he would kill her. Witness advised her to send for the police. Huth, she said, heard her give the woman the advice, and he turned and abused her. "They were fighting all the time they were there." the witness stated. She said she intended to leave the build ing if the trouble continued. Monday night, she said, her friend, Mrs. Ella Durnbaugh, was visiting her, and about 10 o'clock she heard Mrs. Levy calling, "Mrs. Roth." Her tone indicated she was in trouble. Witness said she closed her room door- when she heard Mrs. Levy coming. The latter reached the door and shook the knob. Mrs. Durnbaugh requested her not to open the door, and she told her she would not. "Have you seen Mrs. Levy since Monday afternoon?" the witness was asked after she had said Mrs. Levy had been in her room about 3 o'clock and left some bread and bacon with her. "No, sir," she answered, " and God help ing me I don't want to see her.' Mrs. Roth described Mrs. Levy as being a beautiful woman, and said she weighed 190 pounds. Corroborates Previous Witness, The next witness examined was Mrs. Ella Durn1baugh, who was visiting Mrs. Roth. She was made nervous by her expe rience in the E street house Monday night. The witness said she was in the room of Mrs. Roth when the trouble occurred. Her attention was first attracted to the rooms occupied by Mrs. Levy and Huth by hear' ing a noise, which was followed by Mrs. Levy calling, "Mrs. Roth!" Witness had Mrs. Roth close the door. She told of Mrs. Lev.y coming upstairs and rattling the doorknob. Later she saw the woman's body where it was resting on the landing at her friend's door. Policeman. Percial Lewis of the first pre cinct related to the jury the part he play ed in the affair just after the murder was committed. He heard screams coming from the house on E street, and upon him arrival there he saw Huth standing out side the second-story window over the show window of O'Connor's saloon. Comn lng from the upstairs he heard- a gurgling sound, such as would ordinarily be made by a person who was being choked. Wit ness said he heard Huth say somebody from Philadelphia had made him do it. He said he knew of no trouble in that house prior to the time the woman was murdered. Witness told of finding the woman on the upper landing at the door leading to the apartments of Mrs. Roth. He said it was very dark in the house, and he saw.nothing of Huth. Special Policeman Mosly Williams, who was with Policeman Lewis Monday night, placed the razor on the coroner's table when he appeared to be sworn as a witness. "What's in that package,'' the acting coroner asked. "That's the razor." the witnes answered. He then opened the small piackage and produced the blood-stained weapon. Witness-told of having heard the screlams and of having seen Huth come - out of the window over the saloon. He heard the lat ter say: "Agnes Levy compelled be to do this. I was driven to it.' Witness and others entered the buildAng and went to the landing on the third floor, where he found the dying womaan. When he reached the landing she was standins and had one hand on the,-knob of the door of Mrs. Roth's apartments. She attempted to take hold of witness .with the other hand, but collapsed and flell. Heard the Disturbasee. Frank B. Winter, a painter, who occupies apartments in the' buiding adjoining that in which the crime wasn commutted, teaM fled that he heard and witnessed pat -of Monday night's occurrene, "I was easted in. muy rosin reading," he stated, 'Mrhen I heard a quarrel and 3r. fa*e language.

Winter said bis'attention was trot at tracted to the two weeks ao Inst sunda. Te , he said wanted his breakst and complained that the woman did not get it quick enough for him. Wit ness beard him say be was tired of it and would not put up with it any longer. He heard him say something about knocking the woman in the head.. Coroner Levity. Louis Blackeye of E street north west caused some ment when he ap peared upon the wl stand, and the cor oner said he would i' the room of spee tators if there was 1ny repetition of the laughter. "I said to him. 'you - - you killed that woman.' " said. Blackeyei "and be said 'No. nd, no.' Witness said he iw Ruth go over the back fence after he had spoken to him. Witness then went In'the house and said he was holding the woman's head when she died. "I was talking to the woman that morn Ing," the witness said. "She was a good woman." W. A. Pierson of Ephraim, Utah, who said he was here for his health, was in O'Connor's saloon when the woman was killed. When he heard the noise upstairs he spoke to the proprietor of the saloon. and the latter ranarked: "He'll kill that woman." Witness heard sounds as if somebody was being choked. Then he told of the man coming to the window, and witness heard him say: "I cut her. - She did me dirty and I had to do it." Michael F. Morrison, a sailor; Jeremiah McCarthy and E. Martin, who were also in Connors' saloon, told the coroner and jury what they knew of the affair. Martin said he heard people running about in the room over the saloon, and he heard a noise that was evidently made by the upsetting of a chair or table. He heard the woman scream and heard sounds as it made by a woman who was being choked. Huth said: "She drove me to it; the woman above is the cause of it." Morrison and McCarthy both heard Huth say that Agnes Levy had driven him to it, and that she was from Philadelphia. The latter said that a lady called from a win dow on the third floor: "Please send for an ambulance, a lady up here is bleeding to death." Acting Deputy Coroner's Statement. Dr. R. W. Baker, acting deputy coroner. described the terrible cut in the woman's throat which had almost beheaded her, and said her death was due to hemorrhage. The doctor found that a number of cuts had been made with the rasor. Ralph McKee, living at 471 L street south west, testified that he saw Huth in Locust court after he had attempted to commit suicide. Witness said he attempted to dis arm Huth, and he said: "I've killed one. I'm going to kill my self; and I'll kill another." McKee thought he was referred to as "another," and he did not put himself in a position to get killed. When witness saw Huth the latter was lying on the pave ment digging at his wrist with the knife. He had already cut his throat. William Bieber, he stated, kicked the knife from Ruth's hand. This closed the testimony, and the case was submitted. REAR - END COLLISION ONE ELECTRl' CAE SMASHES INTO AdITHER Trolley lumps the Wire - Two Pas sengers Painful!'" Injured-Others Slightly Hprt. A rear-end collislori4k the Chevy Chase line of the Capital T4t1n ATeet Railway Company, shortly . W 1L.-' clock lest night, caused considerable- excitement among the.passRgers, A number of whom were shaken up. The police report that several persons were slightly and two pain fully hurt. The accident occurred on Connecticut ave nue extended between Albemarle street and Pierce Mill road. There is a steep bill at that point, and when the car was near the bottom of the hill. coming in the direc tion of the city, the power of car No. i2 was shut off by the trolley leaving the wire. With the power cut off the car was left in utter darkness, there being no lights attached to it to warn the motorman of the car behind of the danger in front. While the conductor of the first train was trying to replace the trolley the crash came, car No. 21 running into the one ahead. Many of the passengers on the front car, hearing -the one approaching in the rear, realized their danger and jumped oft. A number of them were not so fortunate. however, and they were caught in the crasfn and badly shakeh up.- Mrs. William F. Hart of No. 81 Myrtle street northeast and her daughter Sadie were the two most seri ously hurt. Mrs. Hart, it Is thought. re ceived internal injuries, and the daughters leg was badly hurt. They .refused -hospital treatment and were taken to their home. Motorman's Statemen1t. Motorman' B. E. Nathan, who was in charge of car 21, which ran into car 22, said last night that when he was near the top of the hill he ha4 to wit for the car ahead of him to get ' safe distance away before proceeding. When, conrlpg down the incline, he satid, he noticed the car ahead of him and impediately applied the brakes, but was unable to check the apeed quickly enough to prevent a collision. .The car ahead seemed to stop quite suddenly after the trolley came off the .wire. He said when he saw that a collision was un avoidable he told the passengets sitting on the front seat to jump, and when about three feet froi the car in front of him he leaped to the ground. All the passengers on this seat managed t'o get off the car- ex cept .one young 120man, and she escaped apparentty uninjured. The impact of the cars was so great that car 21 stove in the rear dashboard and smashed to splinters the last two seats of i'he trailer of car 22, the no'se of car 21 coming close up to the third seat. If the passengers had not jumped from these' twa damaged seats the loss of several Il,ves would doubtless have' resulted. DEAD NEARE AThWAY TRACEK. lames W. Pumnphreq Meets With latal James W.
