The government resumed putting In
testimony In tho Rogers case this
morning by calling Harry HigglnSi a
member of tho coroners' Jury that
made the investigation, and he was
followed by Judge W. B. Stout also
a member of the jury. Both substan
tlaly corroborated the testimony pre
viously given by other members of the
jury. Dr. Alfred J. Palmer who was
the examining physician at the In
quest testified a3 to the wounds found
on the body and Dr. P. J. Mahone gave
expert tostlmony.
At tho conclusion of Dr. Mahone's
testimony the case was continued till
10 o'clock Monday morning. It is be
lieved that the government will finish
by Monday night.
The trial of W. R. Rogers, accused
of first degree murder for the killing
of X. H. Nixon on Christmas creek
in .May, 1913, reached the stages of
introducing testimony yesterday af
\V. D. Ford, the first witness for tho
government, was operating an automo
bile for the Glacier Crook Mining com
pany, according to his testimony at
the timo of the tragedy and in com
pany with J. J. Rath. Charles Mur
phy, and William Henderson, went to
the cabin that had been occupied by
Wixon and Rogers on May 25, two days
after the tragedy. They got tho body
according to bis evidence and took it
back to Haines. Tho witness said
I that the body was found on the floor
J of tho cabin with feet toward the
door; right arm was extended, the
palm of the hand up and nearly closed;
a 35 caliber automatic riflo was lying
within four inches of tho hand; tho
j safety on tho gun was pulled up and
the gun ready to shoot; a steel jacket
bullet was in the chambor and soft
nosed bullets were in the magazine;
there was blood on the front of the
body clear down to the knees, and un
derneath the body to tho arms.
Rath followed and his testimony
was in substance about the same.
R. M. Odell, who was U. S. Com
missioner at Haines, and who presid
ed at the coroner's inquest held in
Haines on May 26, said that he could
only remember parts of the testimony.
Witnesses said that Rogers testi
fied In his own behalf at the inquest,
but that he could remember but very
j little of It. Witness said Rogors
stated "that he (Rogers) and Wixon
got to quarreling about who should
go to Porcupine after tho mail; he
told Wixon that he was going and
Wixon said he should not; that Wixon
said ho would get him and started
to tho gun rack." On being cross ex
swung with the hammer and tapped
Wixon on the head and beat Wixon
to tho gun rnch." On being cross ex
amined. witness said that hl3 quota
tions as to Roger's testimony before
tho jury were in his own language; ho
did not recall that Rogers claimed ho
i acted In self defense, but Rogers tes
; timony about the position of the men
| at the time, and what happened, gave
him the impression that Rogers struck
, Wixon to prevent the latter from reach
Wixon had got his own gun. Rogers.
Wixon for five or six yours, but was
he remembered seeing him before the
trouble. Witness said that he exam
ined the body. Of Wixon. and found
three wounds, ono over the eye where
tho skull had the appearance of being
fractured; ono to tho right of the nose,
and another near tho right ear; also
powder burns on tho face. Rogors
story at the inquest as he romombered
it was about as follows:
"Rogers was standing and setting
tho bit in a plane which ho had been
sharpening, and hnd a hammor. in his
right hand; Rogers said he was going
to Porcupine aftor tho mail, and W ix
on said he couldn't go and jumped to
ward the gun rack; Rogers struck
him with the hammer to stop him,
but ho got up and, reaching the gun
rack got his gun about the samo time
Rogers got his; Rogers shot immed
iately anu Wixon foil to the floor with
his own gun in his hand; they wore
closo together and Rogors shot from
tho hip." WitnesB said that he did
not join in tho verdict of the jury.
Hinchman stated that Rogors was
asked why ho did not continue to use
the hammer when Wixon attacked him
and ho repliod: "I didn t think It
was tho right kind of a tool."
On cross examination tho defense
started to go into tho question of not
joining in tho verdict of the coroner's
inquest, and the court Instructed tho
jury that all references to the verdict
of tho coroner's Jury was stricken.
Ira King, agent for the Alaska
Steamship Company at Haines, was
a member of the coronor's Jury at tho
Mainea investigation. Ho testified
that ho could remember tho testimony
of Rogers in a general way; that Rog
ors stated in substanco "that tho trou
ble arose over who should go after1
tho mall; Wixon who was lacing his
shoes, jumped up. saying he would
fix him (Rogors) and that ho swung
and hit Wixon with tho hammer; Wix
on got up and again started for the
gun rack, whon Rogers grabbed his
own gun and shot him."
John Roscne, Jr., bookkeeper who
was in tho Haines country at the
time, was a member of the coroner's
Jury. His recollection of Rogers' tes
timony was practically tho same us
the other members of the jury. H1b
recollection of Rogers' testimony was
In substanco "that Rogors, who hud
the plane and hammer in hand with
which he had been working, was stand
ing closo to Wixon, who was sitting
on a stool lacing his boots. They were
quarreling over who should go to Por
cupine after the mail; Wixon threat
ened Rogers and sprang toward the
gun rack, Rogers tapped him on the
head with the hammer, knocking him
down: Wixon got up and rushed for
the gun rack again and secured his
gun; Rogers also got his own gun
and swinging with it shot Wixon,
poising the gun from the hip; Wixon
fell to the floor with tho gun in his
hand; Rogers went outside and closed
the door; left his own gun and went
to Hainos."

soor of belief in ultlmnto union.
It is tho osscnco of Elkdom novor

humanity, sympathy, aid and comfort.
