Tettimonj That Miller TTas DrnnV. and In sulted Colored Ladies. MISCELLANEOUS COURT K0UT1NE, ETC. Joseph Dimoy's trial for the murder of Special Officer Miller, in Allegheny City, was resumed in the Oyer and Terminer Court yesterday. Dimmy's mother sat be side him and evinced more interest in the testimony than did her son, who seemed to get considerable enjoyment ont of some phases of the testimony. There seemed to be a disposition to get amusement out of the case notwithstanding the solemn position the prisoner is in, and -when some of the audience laughed at a portion of Bobert Wagner's testimony. Judge Collier had the room cleared of spectators. The firet witness yesterday was Dr. Foster, who testified to having maan the post mortem on the body of Miller, and that death was due to a cun shot wound. Officer Dawson testified to assisting in the arrest ot the prisoner and that he stated on the way to the lockup that the officer followed him ana he shot him, and would have shot more it he could. . , Officer Wallace testified that at the hospital Sillier said that he was standing four feet away from Dimmy and was shot while tr ing to pur suade him to go home. Captain Wilson. Officer Glenn and Officer Temme, of Allegheny, all testihcd to the arrest and identified the revolver taken from the per son of Dimmy. The Commonwealth then rested. , , A. Thomas M. Marshall. Esq., opened for tho defense. He did not deny tne shooting, but he held that Dimmy was mentallv imbecile and had been so from birth: that Miller had been the aggressor, striking the prisoner with a handy-bilh, and that the shooting was in self defense; that when he shot at Officer Fitz gerald, who had chasea him, the prisoner thought it was Miller who was still chasing him Blanche Stanton was the first witness who testified for the defense. She said she saw Officer Miller and Dimmy en Beech street. The officer had said something to Mrs. Yaw. He acted as thouirh he was drank. She siw Officer Miller draw a revolver and follow Dimmy across the street, but did not see the shooting. Robert Wayne saw Miller on Beech street: saw Miller and a man named Jones. The offi cer and Dimmy had some words and he saw the officer puU his hand out of his pocket and strike the prisoner a blow which made him stagger. He saw Miller pull something from his fcket that shined, and the witness ran be hind a telegraph pole, afraid of being shot; saw Dimmy reach for a revolver. John M. Jones testified that he was at the rink and had started home; met Dimmv on Beech street. About half way np the street they saw Officer Miller; he had stopped some ladies. Dimmy and Miller had seme words and he saw something shining in Miller's hands. Witness started to run down Beech street; looked back and heatd a shot fired and saw Dimmy stagger. Then he heard another shot fired, alterward saw Dimmy ar rested, and told the officer that Miller had fired first. Then he was arrested and held as a witness. When arrested he was handcuffed to Dimmy and heard the prisoner tell the officer, in answer to a question, that be had to shoot. Mrs. Eliza Yaw testified that while on Beech street returning from the festival. Officer Miller requested to be allowed to go home with her, but she refused him. and soon after heard the shots, but thought they were rail road caps and paid no attention to them. Mrs. Zetta Jefferson and Charles Harris cor roborated the testimony of Mrs. Yaw. Miss Adore Harris saw Officer Miller at the festival; was talking to him, and he was "tight or full.'" She smellcd liquor on his breath. She described his apparel. On her way home through the park she heard two shots and saw two men run past her, hut could not recognize them; subsequently heard two more shots fired and heard some one sav, "Catch him." Wm Lews saw Miller at the festival and knew he was drunk, having seen him stagger; beard him say something to Miss Harris and went up to him to stop him, as he, witness, was with Miss Harris and wanted to protect her from insult. He did not know Miller -was an officer. Adjourned until 9:30 this morning. ACTUALLY STUCK IN TEE MUD. Damage Asked From n Township on Ac count ef Injuries to a none.

"Why Wevttnshonse Claims a Superiority Over the Fdison Company. The "Westinghouse Electrio Company, on "Wednesday evening, gained the control of the United States Electric Light Company, and the Edison apparently is once more forced to take a back seat. This concern is one of the oldest electric light companies in the country, and it has been the strongest rival the Edison compa ny had until Westinghouse came into the field. Some of their old patents are said to be of very great value and superior to anything in the electric light business. This waS one of the reasons why "Westinghouse and Edi son were both anxious to get control of them. There are also some valuable patents held bv the United States people in conjunction with the Edison company. On account of this deal, however, the right of these pat ents will go into the hands of "Westinghouse. "The United States Electric Company," said Mr. Humbird, the Assistant General Manager of the "Westinghouse Company, yesterday, "was in fact the balancing power between Edison and "Westinghouse, and as we have acquired their additional ad vantages of the balance, onr company is now the strongest in the world." "How will the Bates decision affect your system ot electric lighting; is it true that it gives Edison some advantages over yon?" "No, not in the least The decision has only a bearing in the direction that in America a patent does not necessarily ex pire with tne shortest term of the prior foreign patent Yon understand by this that an American patent is not supposed to exDire as long as the foreign patent holds good. "We are as favorably affected bv that decision as the Edison company, and if they say they gained a little more benefit, they are simply prevaricating." A R0USIXG WELCOME. The Boston Stnra Company Win Praise by Their Good Work. The Boston Stars gave one of their de lightful performances at the Second U. P. Church, Stockton avenue and Sandusky street, Allegheny, last evening. The large audience accorded the famous company a rousing welcome. Each selection was heartily applauded. It would be a difficult matter to say who was the favorite of the audience. Mr. Rudolph King, pianist and composer, rendered two piano solos. Mr. "Walter Emerson, the great cornet player, won flat tering praise by his fine playing. Miss Medora Henson-Emerson, the distinguished soprano, sang an English ballad, a serenade, with cornet obligate, and a third selection. Miss Delia F. Brown read the "Chariot Eace from "Ben Hur," and recited "Money Musk." The evening's entertainment closed with a finale, "Bivonac on the Battlefield," by Miss Kella E. Brown, assisted by the entire company. GIVE ME A HAGGIS. Elaborate Preparations by the Scots to Honor Robert Barns.
