TV n v. v. y w 1 a O k ILK The defense In the Zapsda murder case was surprised by the suddenness with which the territory rested. Late in the afternoon District Attorney Ba ker and Assistant Bullard psked for a recess that they might hold a confer ence. At the end of it they announced that they would rest. The court direct ed the attorneys for the defense to proceed with their evidence. , Judge Street replied that he had not supposed that the prosecution would finish so socn and that the evidence for the de fense had not been arranged. He ask ed for an adjournment until this morn ing. The court said the case had al ready consumed a great deal of time and urged that there be no further de lay. He suggested that there might be a night session but the attorneys for the defense did not want one. It was decided to proceed with the case at once and Captain Alexander made a statement to the Jury disclos ing a part at least of the defense. As had betn expected the name cf the wife of Mac-Donald, the victim of Zapeda, was introduced. Captain Alexander said It would be chown that more than a month prior to the time of the kill ing Mrs. MacDonald stopped at a ho tel kept by Zapeda at Sentinel. She had been brought thc-re by her husband and was on her way to Gila Brnd; that at the same time a young mai had stopped at the hotel; that MacDonald leturned to Agua Caliente but about 8 o'clock that night he unexpectedly came back to Sentinel and broke into the room occupied by hip wife and found her talking to this young man. He drew a gun threatening to kill both of them. The wife fled from the room and took refuge in the part of the ho tel occupied by the family of Zapeda. Finally he went away taking his wife back to Agua Caliente. The young man Fpent the night at an Indian camp. When this happened Zapeda was away from home. On his return he made rome inquiry about it but could not gather all the details of the trou ble. A few days befo-e the killing Mrs. MacDcn'd again stopped at the hotel at Sentinel on her way to Gila Bend and Zapeda asked her about the oc currence of the month before. The train was-then nearly ready to start and she did not have time to tell him but promised to do so on her return. A short time before the killing Zapida wrote to her at Gila Bend asking her to step and tell him about the trouble. He made some mention of money for her expenses. She sent this letter to her husband and he received it on the day of the killing. Captain Alexander said that the defense would prove that at the time Zapeda entfred the saloon of Mac Donald he did not know that MacDon ald was in possession of the letter but that he had gone Into the saloon to collect for some merchandise he had brought over from Sentinel that morn ing. There would alo be satisfactory explanations of many things that had bpen related by the witnesses for the territory. If this statement can be substantiat ed it would be shown that Zapeda did not go into the saloon for the purpose of murder; that MacDonald had a gun Fome where and that he was given to the use of a gun. In the courFe of the day several wit nesses for the territory were examined. Most cf them had testified at the pre liminary examination fo that there evi dence was not new. J. H. Root, the justice of the peace at Agua Caliente, said that he saw Zapeda on his way to the saloon a few minutes before he heard the shot. He walked unsteadily as If he had been drinking. He soon after returned and told Mr. Boot that he had shot MacDcnald in self defense. Mr. Boot thereupon hurried to the sa loon and what he saw there had been told by several of the other wltaesses. He prepared the dying statement of MacDonald and In the course cf ills evidence the statement was admitted to the jury. There were four new witnesses. They were Mr. and Mrs. L. F. Bruce, J. W. Burg and John Beckett, the latter a Southern Pacific engineer. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce were at the Wills house and they said that Zapeda came there af ter the shooting and said that he had shot to kill; that when he drew his gun, "he meant business." J. W. Burs scid that he heard Za peda say of MacDonald after the shoot ing, "The will go down to his gravp." Beckett overheard a conversation on a telephone in which Zapeda, who was still in Agua Caliente after the shoot ing assured his friends in Sentinel that "he was all right; there are sams men here who think they are brave but they are not so brave when you call them down." There is a possibility that the case will progress so far today that the ar guments may be begun. o fr-H i-S-S-M-fr'fr -i-i- .. -i- .. TRADE TOPICS Hair! Combs!
