The Bishop spoke of his great love for St Louis and expressed his gratification at the general prosperity manifested. He also said that he rejoiced In the progress of temperance throughout the country, and commended the effort of the local Church Extension Society in raising the proposed S100.000 for. the furtherance of tho weaker Methodist churches of the city. The paper of the day was rend by the Reverend H. L. Steves, on "Mormonism," in which he called attention to the fact that the Mormon Church had not changed either in doctrine or practice, and that the younger generation were being thoroughly iruinea.in an its peculiar aogmas ana prac tices. Ho also declared that the Mormon elders now at work In tho city were doing tlees. overytning in tneir power to plant ivior monlsm here. He said the ultimate object of tho Mormon Church was political pow er, especially In tho States and Territories west of the Rocky Mountains.

After tho acceptancb of this Juror Judge Lewis addressed the Court, saying that, in asmuch as both he and his principal asso ciate were aged men, and owing to the sud denness of their connection with tho caso and tho fact that they had little time for preparation, he desired the sessions of the court to be as short as possible. Ho be lieved tho progress-"of the case would in no way bo hindered cr delayed by short hours. He suggested that court convene at 10 n, m. and close at t p. m., and that there bo an intermission from 12 noon un til 2 p.m. Justice" White expressed himself as .be ing agreeable to this arrangement, believ ing the request to be a reasonable one.

Tho roll of the Jury was then called, and lound complete. The venire of Jurors origi nally prepared for Part, Three session had not been entirely used up, there being six names which had not been called. "Mr. District Attorney," said the Court, addressing that gentleman,- "I desire to learn, if I can, how' long. a tlmeypu antici pate It will require for you to present the evidence of your case." "I hope to. complete It by to-morrow noon," was the reply. "And how long will It requlie for your defense?" Justice White said to Mr. Titus. "That depends1 upon tho turn things take. We are not prepared to say," the lawyer replied. Frederick Haller,- Assistant District Attorney,- began the presentation for the pros ecution .at 2:43. He reviewed the assassina tion of tlio President his. Illness and death. The prosecution would endeavor to prove, oald he, that the defendant had been for several days prior to, thu.shootlng informed of. President McKlnlcy's movements; that he entered the Templo of.Musio at'- the Pan American Exposition grounds with a weap on concealed beneath a handkerchief in his hands; that he appeared before the Preelr dent, to shake hands with him and fired the shots that resulted in the death of the chief executive. While the assistant attorney was speak ing the court officials were busy nailing up on a blackboard -a large map of the Temple of Music, in which the crime occurred. PRESENTED DIAGRAM OF THE SCENE OF THE TRAGEDY. Samuel J. Fields, a civil engineer, was the first witness. Hewaa chief engineer of the Pan-American .Exposition, .and visited 'the Temple of Music on the day of the crime to take measurements of the posi tions of articles at the -time .it occurred. The witness was questioned by the Dis trict Attorney. His cross-examination by Lawyer Titus was brief, bringing out that 'the witness had' no personal knowledge of the locations occupied by the various per sons in- the receiving' party; but indicated them as he had been told they were placed. Percy A. Bliss, tho second witness, testi fied that on the day following the crime he had photographed the interior of the Tem ple of Music, at the District Attorney's re quest The photographs.- which were very large ones, were passed to the defendant's counsel and afterwards-to the jurors. '. Doctor Harvey-R. Gay lord of Buffalo was then called, and testified that ne performed the autopsy' upon the ;body of President McKinley. He described the location of the wounds-in the stomach' and the .direction of the bullet The, wounds in the' stomach. Doctor Gay- lord continued- In'" his "testimony; were, not necessarily uic cuue.eiuc.uu. aimiuw. . THE BRITISH LION: "WH0WH! THAT TWIST SEEMS MIGHTY FAMILIAR!" mental cause was tho changes back of tho stomach. The actual cause was absorption of the broken-down matter of the pan creas. There was nothing known to medical science Which would have arrested tho progress. of the charges caused by the pass age of the bullet through the pancreas. PRESIDENT'S WOUNDS EXPLAINED BY DOCTOR MYNTER. Doctor Herman Mynter was the next wit ness. District Attorney Penney questioned him closely regarding the operation per formed on President McKinley at tho Ex position Hospital Immediately after the shooting. Doctor Mynter said the surgeons found the bullet wound In the left upper side of the abdominal cavity. The Presi dent agreed to an operation at once, which was absolutely necessary to save his life. Doctor Mann was selected with Doctor Mynter to perform tho operation. The ab domen was opened. It was difficult to get at the wound in the back of the stomach. The stomach was turned over and a bullet hole was found In the back of that organ. They could not follow the further course of the bullet, and, as the President's tempera ture was rising. It was agreed by the phy sicians present that no further search for It was advisable at that time. The stomach was replaced and the opening closed with sutures. On the advice of the physicians the President was removed to Mr. Milburn' b house. Doctor Mynter then described the period of favorable symptoms shown by the pa tient, his relapse and death. Doctor Myn ter gave the names ot all the doctors who were associated with him In the case and described the result of the autopsy, saying that it proved, first that there was no In flammation of the bowels; second, that there was no Injury to the heart; third, that there was a gunshot wound in tha stomach, and that there was a gangre nous spot back of the stomach as large as a, silver dollar. "What was the cause of death?" asked Mr. Penney. "The cause was blood poisoning from the absorption of poisonous matter caused by the gangrene. Primarily it was the gunshot wound. Cross-examination by Mr. Titus was di rected to the possible, presence of microbes in the intestines. "Have you any idea- that there may have been microbes In the Intestines of the Pres--ident?" "Oh, yes," was the reply; "you have them, and so have I." "Was the pancreas broken?" asked Judge Titus. "No." "How could the fluid escape from the or gan If it was not punctured?" "By deterioration of the tissues surround ing It" "What caused the Infection of the wound?" '1 wish you could tell me," replied the doctor. Mr. Titus explained that ho was not crit icising the witness, but was questioning him as an expert Doctor Mynter explained that this was a question that could not le determined un til the results of the bacteriological exam ination were made known. WHY THE BULLET WAS NOT LOCATED. "As far as you traced the line of the bul let, did this gangrenous substance exist?" was asked by Mr. Titus. "It existed along tho whole,, track, as weU. as I could find out" "Why did you not continue and locate the bullet when you mado the autopsyr' "I did not make tho autopsy." "Tou were present and were consulted?" "Yes; Doctor Gaylord performed It They tried for four hours to locate the bullet" "Why did they stop then?" "The family of the President would not allow them to continue any longer or to In jure the corpse any more. They would not permit anything to be removed from tho body for bacteriological examination." "Would the' X-ray have shown you the in juries or the path of the wound?" "Not at all. It would simply have shown where tho bullet was. It would not havo shown the position of the injured tissues in tho slightest." "What was the cause of death T "The bullet wound that passed through both walls of the 'stomach and lodged in the muscles of the back." District Attorney Penney, asked In re direct examination: ' !'The X-ray would have disclosed ihe lo cation of the bullet If It had been near- the surface?" J'Yes, or deeper, for that matter," the wit ness replied, DOCTOR MANN DESCRIBES RESULTS OF AUTOPSY. Doctor Matthew D. Mann, another of the physicians who attended President McKin ley, was the next witness. He went over tne ground covered by Doctor Mynter, and de scribed the operation performed at the ex position hospital. "To find the track of the bullet back of the stomach," Doctor Mann explained, "It would have "been necessary to remove the bowels from the abdominal cavity. The performance-of that operation would probably have resulted fatally, as the President al ready had grown very weak as a result Of tho first operation." "Were you prcs3nt at the autopsy?" asked District Attorney Penney. "Yes." "Tell us what you found." "Raising .the stomach, we found a large cavity, the walls of which showed evidence of gangrene. In the cavity "was a. quantity of pancreatic, fluid. The tissues surrounding it, covering a space as large as a "silver dollar, Were affected." "What caused Mr. McKlnleyrs. death?", asked Distrlct.Attorncy Penney. "STha gunshot wound in the stomach,, re sulting from the bullet that passed through both walls of that organ and lodged in the muscles of the back." Doctor, Mann's testimony was not con- ' eluded at the hour "set for adjournment Justice White addressed thojurrors, giv-vi-Hnv "them the usual formal instruc tions as to talking about the case I among themselves talk' about it. .- -- or ; allowing outers to. i J.
