Dr. Caruthers is a typical rural physician of the circuit-riding type. ith gaunt, gray mustache, hard lines Lbout his mouth, ruddy cheeks. and gold-rimmed glasses, he made a pio muresque witness. Prosecutor Mayo questioned the doc or first: Q.-What took ou to Colonial Beach? eptember 30, last? A.-Yes. 4.-What took you to Colonial Beach? A.-I was called to the Eastlake iome by the town authorities about 1:30 in the morning Q.-What did you find? A.-I found in the kitchen of the astlake home the body of Mrs. Eastlake lying prone, tace downward, with her head resting against the ritchen wall. Talked With Miss Knox. Q.-Did you see Miss Knox on this particular morning? A-Yes. I talked with her on the mack porch and asked her If she tnew anything about how Mrs. East ake died. Q.-Did you question her further? A.-I asked her what her occupation was. She maid s was a trained urmre, a graduate of Johns Hopkins U~niversity In 1905. 1 noticed a spot of blood on her long white linen cellar, worn on the outside of her jacket, and isked her how It got there.

(At this point Dr. Caruthers was in-. rtrupted in his description of the in. rueet by Mr. Mayo. who exhibited a pipe which Dr. Caruthers identified.) "We found many other cuts of a minor nature about the face, head and shoulders of Mrs. Eastlake, which It is my belief were inflicted with some small instrument, like a knife," said teTebn lie of Death. Q.-Doctor, In your opinion, at what hour did Mrs. Eatlake die? A-She died between S and 5 o'clock In the morning. Q.-Do you think It was as late as :50? A.-No, sir.

Throughout her letters khe 'epeated. ly sought to get Eastlakd to raeet her some place not within the very shadow of the home that sheltered Eastlake's wife and children. She warningly wrote that she :soped Eastlake would spare himself "the complications that would cer tainly arise" from her visit. And for each threat was a precise apology, carefully stern in Its phras ing, asking that Eastlake would realize her "overtaxed system had collapsed," and that she herself did not enjoy the harsh tone in which she addressed him. The first of the series of letters between the man and the woman now on trial for the death of the third side of the triangle, follow: Monday, 6 a. m. Dear Roger, This is a long letter.

The decision to make today's ses. sion secret was a tacit victory for De Valera. An open session wgl be held tomorrow. The motion for a secret session was made by Dr. White. Eamon de Valera sprang from his seat and seconded It. Collins then got the floor and made a fiery speech. "Some have called m" a traitor." shouted the republican commander. "I want to clear myself publicly. I demand an open session." Collins' face was flushed with ange and his eyes flashed. "I have nothing to conceal." he continued. "I signed thE agreement upon the understanding that all were to recommend its ecoeptanee." After Collins seat down, several others spoke on the mition before final decision was taken. Before the tession wos caled to order DO Valera was asked for a statement on his differences with the Irish peace delegates. Clash. With CoSbas. "At two meetings of Dali Eireann when the delegates were present I have clarified my point of viw." aid the Sinn Fein leader. "!The as sembly sent the delegates to Lon. don expecting that they would have an opbortunity to criticise and re view the results of the conference. Certain alterations were made in the form of the treaty without cab Inst sanction." There was a hot cross fire of verbal exchanges between de Valera and Collins, which resulted in the speaker ruling the former out of order. De V'alera brought up the legality of the Irish delegates' action at Lou don. He declared the Binn Fein plenipotentiaries were not empowered to sign the pact until the cabinet had given its assent. Collins replied. He charged de Valera had misrepresented the situa tion. Then he read a document which indicated that the delegates had the fullest power to sign regardless of the Sinn Fein cabinet. Collins threatened to carry the treaty direct to the Irish people in a plebiscite if Dal Eireann rejected it. "Not Dali Eireann, but the Irish people are our masters, and they have a right to know the facts." declared the army chief. Collins had shaved off his mu. Lache and looked quite bovish. le-~ fore the session was called to ord'r he was in high good humor and. laughed and joked with his fellow members. Meet Anew Tomorrow. Collins agreed to secret discu.ssio't of certain "confidential issu-s."tiro vided an open seesion will be hel for discussion of tho treaty. Dall Eireann will meet again at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning,. when the press and piubic will be admitted. A group of Irish htudents gave de Valera a great reception. There were a nuamber of women present. all in heavy mourning for relatives lost in fighting with the British. They included Mrs. Pearce. whose~ husband wan a victim of the 1916 rebellion: Mrs. Clarke.
