Special to the Scranton Tribune,
Tuiikhaniiui'k, April 11. When court
was called this nioi'tiliitrAbram ldeatculii
tnk the stand and the Uefeime resumed
the cross-exHmlmitlon. Vor two hours
or more the witness underwent a terri
ble buttering In thu effort to breuk
down his testimony. It was a trylntr
ordeal und the witness was worried and
nervuuse. Though, in Borne uuliitpor
tant details he crossed himself, he
stood up to the main facts aud the uu
dletice were Inclined to believe that he
was telllnK the truth.
A. W. Keldman recalled: I was down
to Stevens' Tuesday uiornltiK nd saw
a lot of people out in front examining
something In the road. 1 said to Kred
Wall. "Fred, what's the excitement?"
He said, "Oh, a lot of fools are
out examining where Sherm's horse
bled." He had on a pair of dirty over
alls. The next day he had on a pair
of new ones or at least I thuught they
were new they were clean.
Theodore Streeter recalled The dirt
In the wound on Waterman's temple
was dark loam, not coal ushes or cin
ders. It was not deeply Imbedded ill
the wound as It would likely have been
If driven In by a fall from some height.
It washed out easily. In one end was
gravel about the size of a pea. I had to
open the wound to get that out.
E. li. Phlnney I was at the Wyom
ing House about 10 o'clock on the night
of Jan. 8. 1S1I4. Staid about Ave min
utes. William Waterman and Wescott
were there. Westcott started out to
look for U. W. Waterman, while I was
there, and had not returned when I
left. Fred Wall and another fellow
came. In while I was there and asked
for Tom. They went out again. The
lamp In front of Stevens' was out when
I went home.
Nina Tells llcr Story.
Nina Shook I worked at the Stevens
house in January. 1SS4. Uert Pratt,
Alva Prtt and Air. Buchanan wero
stopping there during court. Fred Wall
was about the hotel on the night of the
Sth. I noticed him and Pratt going out
and In several times. Next day they
were all there. I was sweeping In the
dining room and hall, next the bar
room. They came In between 10 and
11, and I heard them say "If they search
us they won't find anything, not even a
Jackknlfe." He came in several days
after, when Mr. Stevens had discharged
him, and wanted some dinner. I gave
It to him. While eating he said some
thing about their suspecting him of the
murder. I said, "If you know any
thing about It, why don't you tell?"
He said "I don't want to hang myself."
He further said "If they hang me I
won't hang alone. I'll turn state's evi
dence, and some of these fellows will
have to hang with me." Up to the
time that Fred left I noticed no change
in his clothing, didn't see any blood
upon him. I told Mrs. Stevens about
hearing them say what they did about
the Jackknife soon after It occurred,
while we were getting dinner. Did not
tell It to anybody else except my moth
er. About a week after that I was out.
in the back yard and the boy called m
to the barn door, when I saw Fred's
knife on the barn floor behind a post.
The boy was sweeping the floor and
uncovered It. I took it. knew It was
I-red's knife, and carried It Into the
Mrs. S. J. Keating I know Fred
Wall. He frequently came to our
house. He came there one evening
about two months after the killing.
Asked for matches and I gave him a
handful. He had two or three pints of
whisky. Said he had $17 In his pocket
and staid at a certain house In town
and lost it. I 'tried to get out of him
where he staid, but he wouldn't tell. I
said, "Fred, where did you get so much
money? I hope you didn't have any
thing to do with that murder." He
said, "Well, not exactly, but 1 know
more about It than I ought to.' He
said at another time that Nina Shook
knew more about the affair than she
ought to. Iff) aald he would get even
with her yet. -Along In April he came
to the house with Steve. They had
both been drinking, but Fred was fuller
than what Steve was. Fred put his
elbows on his knees and his chin on his
hands and seemed to go to sleep. When
supper was ready Steve told him to
come to supper. I said "Yes, Kred,
you're welcome to such as It Is," He
roused up and said "Walt till I wash
the blood off my hands."
Afternoon Session.
The attempt to show by Dr. Denlson,
on the part of the commonwealth, that
the fatal wound on Waterman's head
might have been produced by a coupling
pin, such as Mr. Ide described, was ob
jected to by tho defense and the objec
tion sustained.
8. 3. Keating I saw Fred Wall on thi
morning of Jan. 9, 18M, In front of the
Stevens house. I asked him what made
the blood tin the ground and he said the
old mare hud calked herself when she
stood there. Henry Mack told rne next
day to look and see what was there. 1
saw some hulr cow hair or horse hair,
I don't know which. Looked us If It
had been punched down Into the blood
with a ntlrk. Afterward I was down In
Tom Harding's with him for a glass of
beer, and when we came out I said to
him, "Fred, It seems to be public opliv
Ion that you had something to do with
the murder, and If I was yoO and hadn't
done It, I'd tell who It was." He said,
"I'd be a fool to hang myself.
you, you'd like to see me hung, wouldn't
you?" I said, "No Fred;'! haven't
nothln' agin you." . '1
Dr. E. H. Hill The wound on. the
temple of Waterman would not neoes
sarlly cause Instant -death. A' person
receiving such a wound would be In
stantly unconscious and unable to
change his position, In my opinion. The
wound could not,. In my . opinion, have
been produced 'by a coupling pin such
as Mr, Ide described.
Dr. D. W, Sturdevant concurred In
Dr. Hill's opinion In the main points.
