Star Witness in the Kennedy Prosecution Surprises the State Attorney. HOPED TO SPOIL AN ALIBI. Testimony of the Day, While Of fered by the State, All Tended to Benefit the Accused Dentist. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. New -York, -May 1". When the trial of Samuel J. Kennedy for the murder of "Dolly" Reynolds was resumed to-day the courtroom was crowded. Detective Sergeant James F. Vallely began by telling of the trip he had made to Statcn Island with Doctor Kennedy on August 16, 1S08, the dny after the murder, going over the ground with him. In the car tho detective told Kennedy he acted like a man out ot his head, and then asked: "Do you take any drug, doctor?" "Yes. chloral," the defendant replied. "Did you take any yesterday?" "Yes, a considerable quantity." "Do you mean to say you do not know what you did last night?" "I do not remember; my mind Is a per fect blank." "Well, Is It possible you may have been at the Grand Hotel last night with 'Dolly' Reynolds?" "I might have been. I don't remember." Fond Hopes Blasted. Then the new witness produced by the State to knock out Doctor Kennedy's nllbl was called. The witness failed utterly In the purpose for which she was Intended. Instead, she dealt a biow to the State, which she was supposed to help. Her tei tlmony helped the defendant materially. The witness was Mary J. Woody, cook for W. J. Slelle, station agent at New dorp, 8. I. She was expected to testify that on the Sunday preceding "Dolly" Rey nolds's death sho called to see Doctor Ken nedy at his home, and had made an en gagement to go to him to have her teeth fixed the following night, the night ot the murder: that she did go there, and that he was not at home. Mr. Osborne examined: "Did you call at Doctor Kennedy's home on Sunday night?" "I did." "And did you make an engagement for him to fix your teeth?" "Yes." "When were you to go to see him?" "Tuesday morning." The answer caused a sensation. Even Os borne was flustered by the answer. "Did you not tell me " broke In Mr. Osborne. Mr. Moore's objection shut out the ques tion. Mr. Osborne returned to the contest, and again and again was knocked out by the clever argument of the defendant's counsel. Mixed on Identity Attain. Patrick Lenahan. the elex-ator boy, testi fied that he was In the hotel office at 2:23 a, m., when be saw the man leave. The man walked out with his hand to his hat. "I could only see a little of his face," said the witness; "he had his hat pulled down over the side of his face." "Have you at any former trials testified that you hal a talk with Davis, the bell- uoy. inm mgnw "No." The witness flatly contradicted Night vit.-ifk uinur,, wnu nau icstinea tnat tne man.who.had passed had not held hie hand to his head or shielded his face from view. Robert Clark, salesman for Smith. Gray & Co., being dead, his evidence given at the first trial was reaifrrnm th tvtwwrittun record. Clark Is the man who testified thai ue ouiu Buavv nai ana a goir cap to tne defendant on the afternoon of the murder. As the stenographer who took the notes pt the testimony had also died In the In tnm between the first and second trials, the testimony wag read by Mr. Osborne and Mr. Moore. With the conclusion of Witness Clark's testimony the trial was adjourned until 10:30 a. m. Monday. THEFT OF GAM LEE'S CORPSE. Grand Jury Is Now Investigating the Case.
