THE 'ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 16, 1914 .1!
:v V7- PAGE THREE DEFENSE PUTS UP SE Judge linker and Associates , Occupy All Day with Ac euimilntion of Testimony in Behalf of Defendant Mamie Mullanax. The courtroom full of spectators, .mil the state also, were treated to more than one surprise in the way of evidence for the defense that had been accumulated by Judge A. C. linker and his associates in the trial of Mamie Mullanax, now going on, for the murder of her husband on fhe niht of April 7 Jast, in the neigh borhood of Jngleside. The superior court was early packed in anticipa tion that the fair young defendant herself would be put on the stand to tell the story of the tragedy of her lite. However, as surprise fol lowed surpii.se, and the strength of the case of the defense became mani fest, there was no disappointment expressed because Mrs. Mullanax did not testify, but as the long day wore on and the strain began to tell on her, expressions were made in the hope that the ordeal would be post poned until she could have another night's rest, a request which was ciuickly granted by Judge Phillips when Attorney Baker made it toward the end of the day. The first surprise handed out in the way of evidence against- that accumu lated by the prosecution was that of )'. Minor, who made the map in evi dence for the state. Minor testified that from where the witness. Whyte, LIES! SECRET TO Bring Back its Color and Lustre With Grandma's Sage Tea Recipe. Common garden sage brewed into a heavy tea with sulphur and alco hol added, will turn gray, streaked and faded hair beautifully dark and luxuriant; remove every bit of dan druff, stop scalp itching and- falling hair. Mixing the Sage Tea and Sulphur at home, though, is trouble some. An easier way is to get the rcady-to-use tonic, costing about 50 cents a large bottle, at drug stores, 1-novvn as "Wyeth's Sage and Sul phur Hair Remedy," thus avoiding a lot of muss. While wispy, gray, faded hair is r.ot sinful, we all desire to retain our youthful appearance and attractive ness. By darkening your hair with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur, no one can tell, because it does it so na turally, so evenly. Toil just dampen a spon.Te or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning all gray hairs have disap peared. After another application or two your hair becomes beautifully daik, glossy, soft and luxuriant and you appear years younger. (Advertisement.) Lodge Notices K. R. & S. dence 209R5.

Dr. Monica! followed as a medical expert and told a story of the condi tion of the man when he examined the body after the killing that bore out the contentions of the statement made by Judge Baker. Then came the noon recess.. In the afternoon Walter Erawner took the stand and. rebutted the tes timony of several of the state's wit nesses as to the condition of the de fendant when she gave herself up after the shooting. The girl surren dered to Brawner, who was the only deputy on duty. Biawner also testi fied to the methods that were em ployed In examination of the de fendant by the officers and county at torney that night and how distracted the girl was. He expressed great sympathy for her. He was followed by Deputy Sheriff Luke, who corroborated Brawner largely as to the mental and physical condition of the defendant when she was in the sheriff's office after sur rendering herself and a murmur of approval went around the courtroom when the young deputy explained in answer to the question that he was not a disinterested witness. "Be cause she is a woman, and if any one needed sympathy and assistance that night she needed it." Judge Johnstone followed and added further along the same line. Con stable Murphy testified. J. I. Graves testified to having seen a man and a woman struggling in a field near the Scottsdale stage line on the day al leged by Judge Baker in his state ment. He could not identify the parties. In short, every detail of the grim story that was made by the chief counsel for the defense in his state ment was supported by testimony. The state, through the able efforts of Frank Lyman, tried hard to stem the tide, but without much success. Be fore the afternoon was over the juiy were sitting forward in their seats to catch the least word of the witnesses. All through the heat the interest was as potent as the temperature "nd for hours none moved lest a little slip might cause the loss of a word of the piecemeal story. It is altogether possible that Mrs. Mullanax will take the stand early this morning and supply the few missing links in the chain of testi mony that has been produced. 1 WON ROOMER USES RAZOR ON LANDLADY Mrs. Laura Lawler Seriously Slashes Mrs. Woods. WEDDING ANNIVERSARY Jack and Peggy Waters celebrated the se cond anniversary of thei.- wedding yesterday by a chicken dinner to a select few of their many friends. Chicken dinner at the Gardens was the tour de force, and the tables were decorated with many beautiful flowers in honor of the event. While the younj couple have not resided in Phoenix vevy long they have hosts of friends. Alleging that Mrs. Martha Woods, proprietress of a Polk street room ing house, attacked her and was beating her until she was in fear of her life, Laura Lawler, who occupied apartments in the house, early this morning, secured possession of a ra zor she kept in her room, and pro ceeded to slash the rooming house manager in a truly African manner. Before she had ceased her work, she had drawn the sharp blade down across the left cheek of Mrs. Woods, had slashed her tlv.-oat and had laid open one breast with a gaping wound that required many stiches to close. She then retired' to her room, washed her hands and proceeded to attend, to her own bruises which were num erous and iihowed that Mrs. Woods had used her fists effectively. Not until I. Garland B. Couch had been called and ascertained the serious ness of the wounds of Mrs. Woods was a call sent to the police sta tion. Mrs. Lawler, who is also known by many people as Mrs. Jackson, was found in her room fully dressed even to her hat and offered no objection to accompanying Policeman McGrath to the city hall. There she broke down and cried when the cell door was closed upon he". Just what caused the trouble be tween Mrs. Woods and her tenant is hardly clear. It is said by Mrs. Lawler that two men visited the rooming house shortly after midnight and were seated upon the front porch when , Mrs. Wood called upon Mrs. Lawler to become one of the party. Mrs. Lawler said she did not care to make the acquaintance of anybody a.t that hour of the night and that this was the beginning of the warm words that followed. Mrs. Woods, so it is claimed by others in the house, had told Mrs. Lawler yesterday that she woiild re quire her room and to have attempt ed to return to her the room rent she had paid in advance. Mrs. Woods while receiving the attention of the physician this morning was unable to make a statement. Her wounds while greviously painful and of such a na ture as to cause pe'.'anent disfigure ment, will probably have no serious result. o WEATHER TODAY QNE THRUST OF KNIFE IS FATAL As Result of a Somewhat Clouded Encounter, Will iam Allison Is Dead and Lutlier McKinney a Pris oner Todav. in AT THE GARDENS Swimming Pool, Vaudeville Program, Good Orchestra and More Dancing lioom Arranged for Popular Down-town Resort.

Center and Adams Phone 453 The thrust of a knife, the keen blade of which penetrated the right shoulder and several an important artery, re sulted in the death of William Allison, and the arrest of Luther McKinney on a charge of murder. Allison died an hour after receiving the fatal thrust without making a statement and Mc Kinney was arrested half an hour af ter committing the deed and spent the night in the county jail in ignorance of the death of his victim. It all happened about 5:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon in the vicinity of the Star Lodging House. Allison, who was also known about town as "Bill' Collins, is said to have been drinking freely during the afternoon. He had started for the rooms he occupied not far from the Star Lodging House when he encountered McKinney. Allison was seemingly surprised to find that McKinney was in town, it being under stood that he was conducting a boot black stand in Mesa. Allison is said to have accosted McKinney who was seated near the lodging house and who was engaged in the homely pastime of whittling a piece of wood, and to have accused him of showing attention to Adeline Star, alias Adeline Hendrick son, a foster sister of Allison. Bystanders say there were few words and that almost before anyone realized that anything unusual was happening McKinney had struck at Allison and then darted away. Allison tottered to a bench with blood pouring from the wound in the shoulder. A hasty exam ination revealed but a small wound and an attempt was made to stop the flow of. blood by applying a bandage. The bandage, however, was placed be low the severed artery and was inef fectual. Half an hour after the crime the man had been removed to the city jail and Dr. Coit Hughes had arrived. There had been such loss of blood, however, it was seen at once there was little hope of saving the man's life. In the meantime Chief of Police Bris bois had telephoned the sheriffs of fice a description of McKinney and Deputy Sheriff Harrison Williams was sent out on his motorcycle. He picked up the trail of McKinney and shortly afterwards found him in hiding under the bleachers in Grant baseball park. McKinney was still carrying the knife with which he had made the fatal thrust. He came to the officer who drew his gun, but not until he had first made an attempt to run. McKinney was taken to the county jail where he was closely questioned by Sheriff Jeff Adams and County At torney Frank Lyman. He gave hut little information concerning the trouble that led up to the cutting, but expressed hope that he had made a good job of it. He then announced that his business affairs demanded his im mediate presence in Mesa and that if allowed to go he would gladly return at any time his testimony might be needed. He was finally locked up in the jail. Allison was married about two years ago to the daughter of Sam Hampton, who conducts a bootblack stand at Second and Washington streets. Not long after the first child was born they separated, off and on since then they are said to have lived together for short intervals. There are two chil dren by this marriageAIIison is said to have seldom worked. His father-in-law said last evening that even since the separation Allison had frequently made demands for money upon the wife from whom he was separated and who was endeavoring to support their children. No longer than three weeks ago, said Hampton, the delinquent son-in-law visited Hampton's stand while the deserted wife was there and urged her to give him money. At that time Hampton claims to have ordered him away, whereupon he is alleged to have made threats of bodily harm to Hamp ton. Both Allison and McKinney are well known negroes, both having worked in various barber shops and at shoe shin ing stands. Allison is said to have been more often out of employment than otherwise. McKinney until one year ago lived here but more recently has divided his time between Tempe and Mesa. Coroner Johnstone impanelled a jury last evening and after the body had Things ave doing at The Cardens. Improvements are in the wind not, the least of which is that of the swimming pool which will be located in the north end of the property and which will show accomodations for 300 bathers. Plans are drawn and the work upon this improvement will begin in the course of a few days. It is the intention of the management to have running water through the pool but not from the canal that tuns through the property as some have been lead to suppose. The ad vantages of a good bathing place run properly for select people close to the center of the city and so well situated as at the Gardens is obvious. Among the other improvements prominent is the work that is being done on the dancing pavilion. It is being placed at the same level as the grounds and will accomodate a great deal more people than former ly. This with the five piece orches tra that is a real feature will make the dancing much to be desired. , The third matter of improvement is to the out -door theater. Here the stage is to be remodeled and en larged and high class vaudeville at tractions will be offered as well as the first class moving picture bill that has been the regular entertain ment : The increasing patronage at The Gardens theater is evidenced by the larger crowds that are being attract ed each night by the unusual degree of comfort with which the pictures may be seen. The prevailing tem perature is fast making The Gar dens one of the most popular amuse ment resorts in the city. The Univer sal pictures have been unusually good and under the expert manipu lation of Jack Waters from the lamp house they have been plain, pleas ing, and potent. The program for tonight is "Ovev the Cliffs" a splen did drama made at Tucson by the Universal Eclair company. The An imated Weekly has been secured and will be shown every Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. A new management has taken hold of the proposition, ami E. B. Greenshaw formerly of Pulaski Heights of Nashville, Tenn., has as sumed the management. The new comer has had all sorts of experi ence in catering to the public in amusement places and elsewhere for many years and a prosperous time is predicted under the new regime. o WILSON BIAS (Continued from Page One) Phoenix Directory Automobiles ' Garages 'Accessories Arizona Motor ompany, Inc.
