After seeingr Wylld Jknvere at 11 c/clock she stayed In the bar-room, but she "could not watch customer* from year to year." She could not remember all who ate dinner with her that day. She had the meal at 12:30 o'clock Wylle Bowers had had his dinner before this. She did not see Wylle Bowers eat his dinner. Her daughters were at dinner when she ate uvr winner. "Who waited on you?" "Oh, 1 Just waited on myself." There was a warm Interchange between Mr. Sommervllle and the witness. She had told Mr. 8chuck she could see Wylle all the time. To Mr. Sommervllle she admitted she had not seen him ill the time, but she was not sure she had made that statement to Mr. Schuck. She saw Wylle several times between 11 a. m. and I p. m. She did not know what time he oame to the house. She saw Wylle Bowers and her sons, Richard and 'Cooney" on the porch together. "When did you make up your mind Wylle was at your house that day?" was isked by Mr. Sohrmervllle. The witness was a. little mixed up and sould not at first give answer, but later jald: "I made up my mind the evening of the Jay he was arrested." When she heard of Bowers' arrest she 3ld not at first remember the incidents [)f the day of the murder. She talked with her neighbors, but denied it was a conversation with neighbors that caused her to remember. She admitted she remembered after this conversation and riot before. "Did you say when Bowers was arrest?d that you didn't know where he was that day?" "No sir." She had no conversation with Lewis Kraft about the murder and Bowere' connection with it. Couldn't remember telling .Mr. Kraft that she could not renember where Bowers was on the morn,ng of the murder. B. F. DUNLAr. / B. P. Dunlap lived on short Coal street North Wheeling. He remembered the 2d >f November, the day before the election, last year. He thought lie remembered :he night of the "Mother Hubbard" paride. He was out gunning that day, with I boy named Hastings. He carried a relating rifle, 32-claibre. The boy had no [Tun. Ho thought he had* on a slouch hat; 'the boy's suit he could not rememscr. He described his route going hunting In Stackyard Hollow. He went up Mt. Wood road, past Nichols' house, Into the hollow. He crossed- the hollow to hiinlr nf VIaI'u lln IviH linn fiin flMi'il svith sixteen charges. He first shot, this jlde of Nichols' house, was at a "giggle" -chicken. He knocked the tall off. That was the only shot he fired that day. This jhot tvaa fired at about 12:35 p. in., about i "square" the other side of Stackyard Hollow?250 yards in other words. He lid not shoot in the direction of the holow. He returned to town- via, Nichols*, foing over his former route. He crossed ;he road about 100 yards "down the road" from where Kiel was klllod? between Kiel's gate and the place where the body vas found. He had not seen others gunning there that week. Hunters do go DUt hunting there. When he returned :o town he had fifteen loaded shells and 3ne empty shell. When he got home It vas about 12:50 o'clock. "What Is the distance from on the hill t>acfc of Ernest Steen's place In Fulton ;o where Kiel was killed?" About 400 yards." "Up hill and down?" ".Straight across." "How much time to walk It at an ordinary gait and hunt?" * "About half an hour." "About an hour to go out and come rack?" "Yes." Coming back from Stackyard Hollow lie heard a shot fired in the hollow, about 12:30 o'clock, near where Kiel was killed. After the shot was fired from below the roads he saw the smoke from the gun ind saw a man running away. He believed It was a rifle shot. It could not lave been a revolver shot he heard. Court adjourned until 2 p. m., at 12:15 i'clock. HEARING THE CLOSE, Hefeiue Cloieiniul ICvhlrnco III IlehuMal In Iiiti-mlticril. At the afternoon session the examlna ticra of the witness, Dunflap, wan returned. The attendance was large. Witness said he was out at Stackyard Hollow the day KM was killed. The person who accompanied him on- his hunting trip was Frank Hastings who lived above Seventh street. He was hunting on the ground ea*t of Kiel's house?or as he put It "that" side of the house. He didn't know whero the east Is. "South." he guessed, "is down that way." (Laughter). After come caching by Mr. Sommervllle he guessed he crossed the hollow north of Kiel's house. II<? shot the chicken between . Kiel's house and the river, about? "You didn't kill Henry Kiel, did you?" "No, what'd 1 want to shoot Henry Kiel for?" "You didn't come- down to the motor tracks at Woodsdale and down the road to Steenrod'a bridge and to Fulton?" "No sir, I came back to town on the same route as I went out, by ML Wood." Tho witness then described his route to Wheeling in detail, whlcbpshowed he and his companion could nor have been tho young man and boy seen nt two points by Mrs. Clattorback and Mrs. Johnson. Ho passed through a Held below the Kiel house; he did not traverse the private road to-the Kiel place.. Crowing the hollow he went past Nichols' place and over Mt. Wood to North Wheeling. Ho passed* within "four squares" of the place where Kiel was killed. Ho could sen the point where he was killed. He saw the stranger, already referred to by the witness, Just after the shot was tired. Ho saw the man just where Kiel was killed?that In not the place In'the road. He knew this by having been taken out there by the sheriff, who was making an Investigation. The stranger was runnig down the hill when last seen by the witness. He saw him for about two minutes and then ho was near the bottom of the run. He had ;l gun in his hands. He told Sheriff Fransfhelm about this matter soon after'the murder. Witness was asked if ho hadn't denied seeing a stranger with a gun. This statement was denied, and gave the witness to the conversation; his father, "Willy" laikens and others. He heard tho shot about 11!:,10 p. m. "Then you wont home In fifteen or twenty minutes?" "First I shot, th" 'giggle,'" "How far was it?" "About half a mile." To Mr. Dryden, witness said he notified aside-hollow near whero he hunted, nnd saw a hoU%e down that hollow. I In didn't know where Mrs. r'latterhnck lived. Witness was called lo the map and pointed out Where ho was and whole the stranger flrod. Tho lalter point was on tho lower side of the hollow road Just where KM was shot. When ho pressed through the corn Held lioar Kiel's place he naw a Ml raw stack, passing It about five or ten yards away. I lo passed It g.>. Ing nut and coming In. lie crossed the holtOW both times between the place wie ii' Kiel wkakilled and thfl fits, To Mr. Somtnervllle, witness said ho bad not pained Mrs. Clfltterhnok's houw, .Judge llugus hero took the wit new nnd asked a num'borof question# relntlvo to tho witness' story ??f having seen u man shoot near whero Kiel was killed. "Was It daylight when you wont out tho Hollow?" asked the Judge, "Yew, ii was Just about daylight." "IMil you see Klo|?" "No. Nearly every oilier day I met him." "ComIn* homo where did you progs?" "1 crossed outUde of the gate," I "When you heard the what were there a wagon, cow or hornet* in sight?" "You said you 04 w Che smoke?" "Yes, after the crack from tho gun.** "You turned around and saw & man?" "Yes, he was running down the run." "Toward the national road?" "No sir, down Into the run, to the bottom." To Mr. Sommervtlle: "Did you see no wagon?" "No sir." "Could you see the road?" "I could see It above the place where he was killed." "Any houses in sight?'* "Yet?, there's a log house down near the bottom of the run on the other side." The witness then testified the houso wus above' where he saw the smoke from the shot. "How far above?" "I don't know Just ttovr tar; I didn't take a tape-line and measure it." "About how far?" "About twenty-flve yards." "How far above didi you crvas tne run?" "Ahnnt ROi'Antv.ftva varriii" "Then- you were one hund~ed yards away from the man who tired the shot?" "Yea, sir." Judge Hugus?"Could you nee the house when the shot was fired?" "Yea." Then the witness was excused. t HENRY ROTH. Henry Roth was next called. He was examined) by Mr. Dryden. Witness is at present mayor of Fulton. Had lived there all his life. He know Henry Stein, the Stein shop, and located Marshall hill, Stacky&rd' Hollow and the place where Kiel was killed. lie saw the latter place this morning, lirst. He had walked over the hill, from the shop, this morning, from the Sttla simp to the place where Kiel was killed, Henry Stein was with .him. They took the nearest route, and walked ar fast as witness cared to walk. It took half an hour to reach the point where Kiel was killed. They stopped) three to five minutes and came back the same way. It took thirty-two minutes to g?-t back, and one hour and seven or eight minutes to make the round- trip. The cross-examination by Mr. Sommervllle was very brief, HENRY STEIN, Henry Stein was next called. His evidence was about the same as the foregoing, There was no cross-examlnatlon. The defendant and his counsel then retired for consultation. At the end of the conference Isaac Bogarrt was called. Witness was reported not present. The defense then restod, EVIDENCE IN REBUTTAL. The stato announced It would have some evidence Jn rebuttal, and after a consultation recalled a, A. Franahelm. He could uot be found In the building, iinrl < rnuultnrl H. C. Ogden, publisher of the Evening News, was next called for the- state, and wan examined by Mr. Meyer. After stating his business, and the time his newspaper came out, witness said his paper did not print an account of the killing of Henry Kiel on the day the crime was committed. (Mrs. Michael Sfeln had said she first heard of the murder through reading of it in the News the same day.) The cross-examination was by Mr. Dryden. Witness1 thought there were but the two regular city editions published on that day, the last about 4:L'0 p. m., but witness had made no special examination of the tiles for that purpose. if there had been a third edition, it would probably be later than the last regular oditlori. The news of the death of Henry Kiel did not reach witness until the next morning. It was not published) in the News of November L', 1890. DAVID CAMPBELL. David Catfipbell was next called. lie knew Mrs. Miller, Minnie Stein and Isaac Hogard. Witness took part in a conversation, In Fulton, with the people named, near the I3ogard saloon, about the next day after the arrest of defendant. Mrs. Miller was looking out of her window, over the saloon, Mr. Hogard ana witness were In front of the saloon, and Minnie Stein came up. Isaac Hogara began the conversation, saying to witness that the defendant was in bad Kliape, and witness said: "I don't know. He may prove he was somewhere eise, .Mrc. Miner sum snc "could not bo qualified" where Wyllo Rowers was on the morning of thu shooting. The cross-examination was by Mr. Dryden. Witness was a coal miner, and worked on the* day named, quit tins at f> o'clock. On the I'd of November, 1K96, witness was at Greenville. On the day flowers was arrested, witness was boarding In Fulton, aiiout one hundred yards above Hogard's saloor. He was not working that day, but?ould not remember what day It was?It was Just after Bowers was arrested. Hogatd stopped witness and made the remark about ltowers belnK "In bad shape," and other remarks followed. Witness and Mr. Dryden got Into quite a unarl over the question: "If you told Senator Kommervllle this ECZEMA Most Torturing, Disfiguring, Humiliating Of itching, burning, blooding, scaly skin and scalp humors is instantly rollovcil l>y ? warm bath with CUTtotuiA 8o*r, a slnglo npplication of Outicuka (ointment), tho grcuit fikiti euro, anil a full iliwo of CurictmA HmoiiVkxt, groatoat of blood puriflora ami humor euros.

The question was asked at least flfteen times, and Anally witness said Minnie Stein came i4f> after Bogard and Mrs. Miller and witness had talked. Minnie Stein made the remark after Mrs. Miller satdi "she could not qualify" where defendant was on the forenoon, and Minnie Stein said she could not testify as to where she was. Minnie Stein was at Mrs. Miller's door, and the men were at bogard's store. Witness never had anything against Mrs. Miller, lie had known her for a long time. Wltness anil Mr. M. Stein and the Stein boyo had always been on good terms, urn! witness knew of nothing to the contrary. He had worked against defendant, and did not "leg in here from Fulton through the mud" to Convict defendant. Witness didn't remember when he flrst recalled the conversation he hail heard and taken part In, after Howers' arrest. He had thought over It since the trial smarted, and was able to repeat the words used. The cross-examination was drawn out to great length. A. A. FKANZHEIM. Mr Frnnzhnlm was then, recalled bv the state, and was asked by Mr, Sommervlllo as to his having: been out at the scene of the tragedy with B. F. Dunlap. It was two or three weeks after the shooting?-on November 16. 1896. Dunlap's father, W. B. Lukens and a young man named Hastings were along. \\ It 11089 talked to Dunlap about the matter, but witness did not recall that Dunlap saw or heard a shot flretl or saw the smoke from a shot, but Dunlap did saw he saw a man run down the hill. To Mr. SchUOk witness said the man was supposed to have ran down the hill towards the run. Something might have been said about a shot or smoke, and witness have forgotten it. To Mr. Sommerville witness told of the visit to the locality with the boys. Frank Hastings, Dunlaigti companion, was sent for by the state,T)ut could not be found. The state then rested, and defense did the same, at 4:17 p. m. THE VEBD1CT "NOT GUILTY." Jury ('nine lu After Itelng nut Fifteen .Millules?Much Enthusiasm. At the conclusion of the evidence. Instructions wore read to the jury on behalf of the defense, by lur. Dryden, after a wait of fifteen or twenty minutes after the testimony had closed. Relative to the alibi It was said the evidence on that lino was proper, and if the Jury doubted the defendant was ?t the scene of the murder, a verdict of not guilty must bo given. It was not necessary to prove this beyond reasonable doubt. For the state, Instructions were read by Prosecuting Attorney Meyer. At 6 o'clock the Instructions were handed to the foreman of the Jury and they filed out of the court room, across the hall Into the Jury room. "While the jury was out, the crowd remained In the court room very much on the anxious seat?more so than the 1 prisoner, who seemed as unconcerned as ever,and sal quietly between his attorneys, Messrs. ?Schuck and Dryden. At 5:15 o'clock there was a rush into the already crowded court rooin from the outside and the word was passed around that the jury was leaving Its room. ""i At 5:17 Judge Hugus, Sheriff Richards and the Jury entered the court room, and, a minute later, the assem iJlilRR 1VUN so '|UII!1 mat n ytu a iaii could bo heard, almost. "Gentleman of the Jury, have you agreed upon a verdictV" said Clerk Hennlng. "We have," replied Foreman C. Harry. "What Is It?" "We, the jurors. In the case of the state vs. Wiley W. Bowers, find, from the evidence In the case, thai the defendant 1h not guilty as charged in the within Indictment." "So say you all, gentleman?" interrogated Mr. Ilennlng. A general nod wan the response. "Gentlemen of the jury," said Judge Hugus, "you nre discharged until Dei-ember 22. Bowers, you are discharged." As the last sentence fell from the rourt'K lip?, the audience burst into enthusiastic cheers which were repeated. It was a remarkable scene and testltled to the fact that the crowd had made up its mind that Bowers wus not guilty. Many came into the enclosure and congratulated Itowcrs. who first shook the hands of the members of the Jury. He was not surprised and said he was | innocent and expected nothing but a verdict of acquittal.

MENTIIER |h the man for WAtohvAi WASHINGTON Some Unpublished F Illness and the L vey to Men ai the Pres It Is not generally knou^i that Clen- 1 era! Washington was killed In a most cruel and barbarous manner, but it is, j nevertheless, a fact. At the time of his death, Washington was in his sixty-eighth year, a ntrong, robust man. On December 12, 1799, he contracted a severe cold and pneumonia threatened. Two doctors wore summoned, and. In accordance with the absurd custom of those days, they proceeded to bleed their patient. Nearly a quart of blood was taken from his veins, until at last ho begged them to let him die in peace. Ho died that same day?not from disease, but actually from loss of blood. 'He tfas killed by ignorance! In these Oays, any doctor who treated a patient as Washington was treated, would bo Indicted for manslaughter. Tho world has moved since then, and there has been n complete revolution In the practice of medicine. Instead of lowering the vital forces by thinning the blood, advanced physicians now endeavor to build up the strength of their patients. They employ only tho latest nnd most scientific remedies. And yot, in spite of this fact, we find Till: RAILROADS' A" ease was filed in the .United States court at Columbus on Wednesday, from this section, that will be watched with Interest by traveling men. The title of the case Is: James L. Carmen against John K. Cowcn and Oscar G. Murray, receivers of the Baltimore & Ohio Hallway Company. The petition gives the geography of the Baltimore & Ohio lines in Ohio, and then goes on to say that prior to the 6th of October, 1896. the Columbus, Shawnee & Hocking Railroad. Company was authorized by the said receivers to Issue mileage books to a thousand coupons each, in which each coupon was good for a mile's travel over the Baltimore & Ohio, west of Pittsburgh and Benwood. iThei plaintiff avers that prior to the date given, he purchased on? of the books, and on the date mentioned boarded one of the trains of the Baltimore & Ohio, at Wheeling, to go to Benwood; that there were remaining In his book about one hundred coupons; that he presented his book to the conductor, who refused to receive It, and demanded fifteen cents fare. On refusing to pay, the conductor put him off with force, and beat him badly. He sues for damages in the sum of $1,091) 99. It was stated by an attorney that by making the amount as specified this court has final Jurisdiction of the case. New Pullman* for II. A O.
