ix.mlngo Vallea opened with the dis-!
trict attorney reading th
of J. M, Chase at the preliminary
Chase was the man killed at Tor

Chase's testimony on the ground that
It was not Just that the naime of

overruled the objection, and explain-'

Chase should be accepted at par.

the strongest yet produced. Accord

afterwards took the dimensions of
the room In which Col. Chaves was
sitting when shot. He testified that
he saw the saine foot print at Pro
greso that was found below the win
dow through which Mr. Chaves wus
ehot. Regarding the tracks found
under the window he followed them
up an arroya from the Sales home
for at least a mile. In many places
they were well defined.
The counsel again examined Inter
preter Sena's foot and had the wit
ness show what kind of a foot print
it was that he had found beneath
The foot prints led to a Place
where horses or mules had been tied
to a tree. On Monday after the
killing Otero saw Valles at a place
where sheep were being dipped.
Harry C. Bennett was one of the
witnesses called in the case of the
territory against Domingo Valles. Mr.
ISennett resided at Progreso at the
time Col. J. Francisco Chaves was
ehot, and was running a ranch near
there for Mr. Chaves. The Chaves

the railroad. Mr. Bennett said that
Iomingo Valles was at his place on

Then the witness testified to having
found a. stolen horse In the possession
of the defendant. The horse bore
the brand of Colonel Chaves, but the
brand had 'been changed. Valles sub
sequently turned the horse over to
Bennett. This evidence was Intro
duced to show that Valles had a feel

he did. Valles had his right shoe
on his left foot and his left shoe
on his right foot, and one had a

established the venue of the case and
excused the witness temporarily, ad

The defense then took the wltnes
for cross examination. Attorney Lar
razolo attempted to tangle the wit

Valles shoes, but Bennett stuck to
the story that the shoes were on
wrong. Others at Progreso that af
ternoon had noticed the peculiarity.

They had Just become comfortably

then offered as evidence.
on taking the witness ror cross ex
amination, Attorney Larrazolo show
ed the witness his shoe and asked
him to show Just how the shoe that
made the disfigured track was worn.
The witness said that the shoe must
have been worn on the side. The wit
ness was then dismissed.
Counsel aBked to have the first
witness, Harry C. Bennett, recalled.
The foot show was gone through with
again, but the shoe of lnterpetor
Sena was used instead of that of At

which covered a large portion of a
sheet of legal foolscap, was offered
as evidence by the prosecution. The
defense objected. The court over
ruled the objection. When asked how
the diagram compared In size to the
shoe Valles wore, Bennett said thjat
It was much larger.

Marcelino Whittington. a native boy,
who happened to be at the Progresso
ranch on the afternoon that Chaves
passed on the train, but his evidence
proved of little consequence.

stated that the bullet passed through

after bouncing from a door against
which it struck, was picked up from
the floor near where Chaves naa
