THE EAST HAYEN MURDER
DETECTIVE UONNELLT VNDER
FIRE OVER THREE HOURS.
Evidence Begins to Show That Mrs.
Jennings Had No Hand In Commit
ting the Deed State Hasn't Yet
Shown Exact Locality of the Shoot
ing The Detective's Evidence Cor
oner Mix Gives Voluminous Evidence,
Tedious cross-examination by the defense-was
what marked the fifth day's
proceedings of the East Haven murder
trial yesterday. Detective Donnelly
was the target at which counsel for
the prisoners did most of their shooting.
As stated in the Courier yesterday the
case has revealed and exposed the mis
erable life led by.the family, and many
things are being brought out in the ev
idence tending to show that the domes
tic relations were far from happy. The
quarrels and hard words between Jen
nings and his wife seem to have been
of frequent occurrence, and the lad
Taylor seems v to have resented the
harsh treatem'ent meted out to his
mother by her husband. The evidence
produced so far does not seem to give
any proof that Mrs. Jennings had any
part in the committing of the deed,
while the general sentiment seems to
prevail that the lad, Taylor, is more or
less of a degenerate and that the shoot
ing was done more on the spur of the
moment and was not deliberately plan
ned or premeditated. On the other
hand it is shown that Taylor got pos
session of the pistol just before the
deed, and that this looked as if he
meant to use it. The pistol, a murder,
ous 32-callbre, was produced during to.
Detective Donnelly was on the stand
for three hours and twenty minutes.
His evidence was as follows:
Detective Henry J. Donnelly was re
called to the witness stand. He said
that When he was coming back to the
city .with young Taylor on the Monday
following the murder, from the place
where Taylor had secreted the revol
ver, and after the shooting, that Tay
lor said his mother first hid the weapon
In another place. "
Donnelly reiterated the story of the
shooting. The witness said
that Taylor told him:
"We met the old man as we were
driving down to meet him. The old
man said, 'Get out of the wagon, you
.' i I pulled the revolver, but did
not bring him down and then I fired
again and struck him in the breast.
He said, 'I am shot, send for a doctor.'
"Ma laughed and said they were
blanks that I was firing.
"We got him In the -carriage and
drove him home, head down. He made
a kind of a rattling noise. We got him
home and took off his coat, and there
was blood on his shirts. Then ma hol
lered and I took the gun out again and
said, 'You shut up or I'll shoot you
too.' Then I hung up the revolver and
went for the doctor."
Later Taylor said regarding the ar
rival of the coroner's party on the
scene of the tragedy, "If I'd known
what you fellows were up to I'd have
Here the defense objected and Mr.
Webb claimed this evidence was a part
of the state's whole case of obtaining
evidence from the boy under duress
and by force. .
Donnelly said that the boy told him:
"I ain't much of a man with my hands
but I am with a revolver."
Question by the Btate: "Did you see
the sand stains on the dead man's coat
and hat?" '
Thb referred to the defense's claim
that Jennings was shot down in the
road from the home, while it Is ex
pected the state will endeavor to show
that the couple shot the man after they
got him home.
Answer: "When we went down to
East Haven the first time we gathered
up the dead man's clothes and placed
his shoes Inside of them. On our sec
ond visit to the house we found that
the sand from the shoes had stained''
Objected to and objection sustained,
.Later the state managed to get In
evidence that the sand stains of the
clothes might have come from the
shoes worn by the dead man, and not
necessarily from falling. This, tf be
lieved by the jury, will dispose of the
idea that Jennings was away from his
At 12 o'clock Attorney Webb, who
represented the boy, took Detective
Donnelly in hand. He laid stress on
the fact that Donnelly in obtaining the
confession from the woman, used "dur
ess" In that he kept saying "go on, and
tell what happened." Donnelly admit
ted that he never told the coroner what
Taylor told him about the two khots.
He thought Taylor's statements were
strong, but he never thought It neces
sary to bring the matter to the atten
tion of the coroner.
Many of Taylor's damaging state
ments a3 made by the witness, the
witness admitted that 1".9 never heard
Taylor so testify before the coroner.
"Did you say," asked Webb, "that
Taylor said, after the shooting, I have
fixed him all right this trip; get down
and give me a hand.' " At that time It
Is claimed that Taylor was speaking to
his mother, who was in tht carriage
with his mother.
The witness made a non-committal
Just before the noon adjournment
State Attorney Williams let loose a
pcint which shows that the state has
tint yet told just where it thinks the
murder was committed. He showed a
photograph of the roads at the fork
of the road from behind Tyhich it is
sa'd young Taylor shot Jennings.
The defense objected to this, claiming
that this ought net to come In.
The state thereupon said that It
claimc this testimony, from the fact
that it was not clear as to where the
shooting took place. "I have not yet
committed myself as to the localitv of
the shooting," said Mr. Williams.
Detective Donnelly testified that the
boy could have seen over the rocks to
make the shot indicated.
Dr. Eliot followed Detective Donnelly.
The doctor recited the facts pertaining
to his examination as acting medical
examiner of the wounds and the body
of the murdered man. He was followed
by Dr. W. H. Carmalt, who appeared as
an expert witness. Dr. Carmalt also
gave evidence regarding the nature of
the wounds and what he considered
was the direct cause of Jennings'
Mrs. William H. Carpenter, matron at
the Organized Charities, testified as to
the appearance of Mrs. Jennings who
was brought to. that institution from
police headquarters on the night of the
murder. Her evidence went to show
that there were no marks or bruises on
Coroner Mix next went on the stand
and testified at considerable length in
regard to the conversation he had with
the lad Taylor. He read from his notes.
He reiterated much of the evidence al
ready produced regarding the boy's tes
timony as to the meeting of the trio
In the woods, the attempt of the mur
dered man to take hold' of the horse
which the boy was driving; how he
chased the youth, and the threats to
his wife, the violent language used on
both sides and his assault on her by
striking her In the face, and the ulti
mate shooting of the murdered man
by the lad Taylor. At 5 o'clock Coorner
Mix was still giving his evidence and
Judge Roraback proposed 'ail adjourn
ment, but as the coroner had only
another pag to read he was allowed by
the court to continue his testimony, at
the closeof which the court adjourned

Is quite unauthorized. My only inter

rules of the corporation are enforced.
These rules provide that Woolsey hall
shall not be used for any other than

where their relation is Important

the ue of the hall. I will venture to

The statement to which President
Hadley referred was one said to have
been made by Treasurer Thomas Lee
McCIung of the Yale corporation, say
ing that the Interest taken in the meet
ings by Dean Henry W. Rogers of the
law school, PKf. Kent and others, in
volved the interest of the university
sufficiently to warrant the use of the
