advanced was evident from the exam
ination of the jurors and it was fur
ther evident from the state's attor
ney's remarks that he dots not expect
a verdict of first degree murder. While
he declared that Raynor was the ag
gressor and brought on the conflict
which arose over water rights, he said
he would expect a verdict of "some
degree of homicide."
Raynor is charged with the murder
of his neighbor, Calvin Heath, whom
he is alleged to have shot en April 27
! after the latter flooded his ranch at
1 Avondale. Heath, who was a bachelor,
j was in the neighborhood of BO years.
Raynor, who is about the same age,
has a large family, and a number .of
his relatives whose places adjoin his
in Avondale were in the court room
yesterday. His son and son-in-law
were eye-witnesses to the tragedy and
will testify for both the state and the
Three of the veniremen failed to
qualify. J. C. Sutter was challenged
by the defendant's counsel when he
stated that he had religious scruples
against the taking of human life under
any circumstances. Kdgar Le Baron
was released from jury duty on the
same ground, and Carl (. Weiser, who
has a fixed opinion, was also excused.
The twelve men who were finally 'se
lected are O. P. Cooper, Charles Spain,
George j-'. Millett, A. Starkweather,
Fred X. Smith, C. G. Clugston, Alvin
Mann, Herman Hoff, Charles Crisman,
E. L). Solomon, Ellsworth Bailey and
C. 11. Sweat.
Asking that a blackboard be brought
into court, Mr. Laney in his opening
statement illustrated his remarks with
scenes of the neighboring ranches in
Avondale. He sketched the dyke
which he said Heath built to divert the
water from the Agua Frio to his own
lands. Ho told how the water had
filled the land and broken through the
levee flooding Raynor's land. Raynor,
noting that the water was flooding his
corral, called to his son and son-in-law
to cut the dyke. Vpon discovering
that the water was in the pump house.
Raynor had returned to his home for
his shotgun. He arrived at Heath's,
armed, just as his relatives appeared
"I am going to cut the dyke." the
county attorney said that Raynor
called to Heath.
"There'll be trouble if you do." the
latter is alleged to have replied.
Heath expostulated with Raynor,
endeavoring to dissuade him from
cutting the dyke, following him as he
advanced on his property. When
Heath was in close proximity with
Raynor and his relatives. Raynor
raised his shotgun and commanded
that Heath stop.
I "Now, look here." Heath is claimed
to have said, and before he could fin

dying almost instantly.
In the vicinity of where his victim
fell, Raynor cut the dyke, concluded
the county attorney, as he told the
jury that it was Raynor and he alone
who brought on the conflict.
This is the first case in the superior
court that the county attorney has
been called upon to prosecute with
his former law partner as the opposing
counsel. This will be one of the many
reasons why the case will hold a
singular interest, another being the
many law points which will be considered.

George Eberle, lieutenant of No. 2
Company of the Phoenix Fire depart

officer of Chief Wright's force, leaves

Ever since the United States declared
that a state of war exists with Ger

tenant Eberle has had it in his mind
to offer himself in the service of his
country. He studied the situation from
every angle and learned that the gov

man offering himself for service in the
branch for which some ' particular
training- best fits him. So Eberle de
cided that as he is a musician of un
usual talents along lines not over
crowded, he would present himself for
service in the musical branch of the
army. He made his plans known to the
local recruiting station and was
promptly advised that he could be def

there through the enlistment of the

The enlistment of George Eberle does
not remove the name of Eberle from
the fire department payroll, for a

of No. 2 Company. But according to
a statement of Frank last evening the

here today Mrs. Blanca De Saulles told
a story upon which may aepena ner
conviction or acquittal of the charge
of murdering her husband, John L. De
Saulles at his Long Island home the
night of August 3.
It was a tale in which pathos and
humor were mingled. There were mo
ments when the pale. 23-year-old
Chilean heiress smiled broadly at a
part of her own grim narration and
when the spectators who crowded the
courtroom laughed o loudly It was
necessary for Justice David F. Man
ning, who is presiding, to rap for or
der. But the greater part of the story was
so deeply pathetic that jurors and spec
tators were visibly affected.
It was a recital In which scenes were
rapidly shifted. The first was a lux
urious estate in Chile Vina del Mar,
"The Vineyard by the Sea," where the
defendant spent her childhood. Then
followed a reference to ,the three years
the young woman spent in a convent
in England. There was the return to
her Chilean home and her acquaintance
with De Saulles. fresh from laurels
won as a football star at Tale.
Then the witness told of her brief
courtship and the wedding in Paris in
From this point, the story was one
of domestic infelicity and of lnair
ferent neglect," and unfaithfulness on
the part of the husband, which event
ually led to the divorce court. These
years of unhappiness for the defendant
were described as "a horrible night
mare" in one of the several letters
written by Mrs. De Saulles as read to
the court, and which interspersed her
Next came the climax of the narra
tion Mrs. De. Saullles' account of the
tragedy at "The Box," her former hus
band's home near West bury. Long
Island, the night she failed in her en
deavor to obtain possession of her son,
and in a moment of mental irrespon
sibility, according to her claim, lri
the revolver shots.
There was no reference throughout
the five hour recital to "hypothyreosis,"
the thyroid condition which her attor
neys say was partly responsible for her
temporary mental derangement.
Mrs, De Saulles' story having been
told, there remain to be examined sev
erai other witnesses on behalf of tile
defendant and then the way will be
cleared for a long battle of alienists and
other medical specialists representing
the prosecution and defense which is
expected to be waged before the ease
goes to the Jury.
Lawyers connected with the trial

Mrs. De Saulles, whose paleness and
lanquld demeanor reflected her three
months of Imprisonment, told her story
in a tone so low It was necessary for
Justice Manning to admonish her sev
eral times to speak louder.

the trial chamber where her mother,
Mrs. Bianca Errazuriz, her sister Ami

from Chile for the trial.
At the opposite side of the court
room were seated Charles A. H. De
Saulles, ajjrother of John L. De Saul
les, his sister, Mrs. Caroline Degener,
and Stephen 8. Tuttle, De Saulles' for
mer secretary. Near them was Julius
Hademek, De Saulles' valet, who test!
fied in behalf of the state last week.
Among the spectators were many per
sons prornlnent in New York and Long
island social circles.
When Mrs. De Saulles entered the
courtroom she smiled in acknowledge

bowed to the jury as she Ufck her seat

Immediately took the stand. The wit
ness had finished the fiist part of her
story her marriage at the age of 16,
and her return to the United States
with De Saulles when her attorney,
Henry A. Uterhart, interrupted to read
several letters bearing Mrs. De Saulles
signature. These missives brimmed
with words of affection. They pictured
the youthful brides dream of the hap
plness which she thought was to be
hers but an occasional phrase such as

the negligent attitude which Mrs. De
Saulles says her husband assumed to

During a brief stay In London and
later while tlfey were living in fciew

repeatedly embarrassed her by falling

they had arranged.

fections of her son. This was done, she
declared, through a nurse that De
Saulles had engaged to care for the boy
and who, she testified, told him to "act
bad" when he returned to her custody
from the father's home.
A letter bearing De Saulles signa
ture and purporting to show that the
boy was in the custody of his mother
by terms of an agreement between the
parents when the shooting occurred
was introduced by. Attorney Uterhart.

that evening," said the witness, "I

arrived. I think I asked him 'Where
is De Saulles ."
"Then he Appeared. I said 'I think
it is pretty mean of you to keep baby
away from me." I don't know what he
said. I said, 'I have come to take him
home with me." He looked at me. He
said, 'You can't have him you never
can have him.'
"I think I was stunned then," con
tinued the witness after a long pause.
"I had a frightful pain in my head."
There was another silence fully a
minute in duration. Then the de
fendant added, "I still seem to hear

asked the justice.
I don t know. My head was hurting
me terribly. I didn't know where I
was, but I know now it must have
been in jail. That is all I remember."
The last part of the story came in
faltering, uncertain manner, as if
the speaker was striving vainly to re
call something. There was a seeming
ly interminable space between the
words, and her tone lowered until the
concluding sentence, that is all I re
