WITNESSES FOR THE DEFENSE "Were Heard Yesterday* but the Justice Held That tlie Evidence .instilled the Holding of the Oil Magnate for Action by the Criminal Court Grand Jury?Mr. lllssom has Furnished Bond in the sum of $'200. J. R. Hissom, the oil magnate of the Island, and who was known to fame last fall as one of the Democratic can dldates for the house of delegates, has been held for action by the criminal court grand Jury, on the charge of bribery. ^ Last week, It will be remembered, the ' state's witnesses were heard In the court of Justice Dunning, and further proceedings were postponed until yesterday afternoon. The case rested on the testimony of Miss Edith Maser, who testified that Mr. Hissom offered to "make it all right" with her 1C she would testify that Ills son, Dr. S. K. Hissom, was insane. \ Yesterday afternoon, the' three witnesses for the defense were examined. The first was Mrs. Hubbard, daughter of Mr. Hissom, who said she was present nearly all of the several occasions on which Miss Maser had said her father made the nlleged attempt to bribe, and she had heard no conversation of , the character testliled to. If-such a conversation or conversations had oceur? red, the witness said she would have known it. i Miss Alice Hissom. another daughter 1 of J. R. Hissom, testified to the same effect as her sister. -j Mrs. Isabella McKnight, a sister of Mr. Hissom. was the last witness. She said she had. been present part of the time when Mr. Hissom and Miss Maser conversed, and she had heard no reward or bribe offered by the former. There was a vigorous cross-examination in the course of which more dirty linen was exposed to view. Arguments were made, Mr. Charles J. Schuck opening for the state; he was followed by Mr. John A. Howard, (or the defense, and Mr. M. F. Dryden closed for the state. The justice then rendered his decision, which was that the evidence Justified him in holding Mr. Hlssom under $200 bond to await action by the next criminal court grand jury. Mr. Hlssom gave the required bond later In the afternoon. At the Asylum. A friend of Dr. S. K. Hlssom, who was recently committed to confinement In 1 the second hospital for the insane at Spencer, has received a letter from the J doctor, in the course of which he says: "I arrived at Spencer O. K. last night, and found things all right. We had a fine trip and it taught me much. The railroad company here has certainly discovered the nearest thing to. perpetual motion. All that is necessarft- is to get up enough steam to get the train up the first grade after leaving Ravenswood; then they put out the fires and i coast down hill and the force takes the train up the next hill. The stations are located on the hill-tops, eo it is easy to get Q fresh start. "A patient came to me this morning, and after looking at me for awhile, said, 'You are an oil man.' I said, 'No, ? I am a crazy man.' He answered, 'Well, all oil men are crazy.' I don't know why he had it In for the oil men unless he struck a dry hole in the past. The asylum here is out of sight, an extra fine building and the cleanest asylum 1 ever visited (of course I mean as a visitor). Please have the News, Intelligencer and the German paper sent to me here; also all my mail." A letter from the superintendent of the asylum states that Dr. Ilissom is quite comfortably situated; he has special meals served in his own room, and does not mingle v.ith the other pa* tlents. The young man's lawyers here ore confident they will soon receive lnt formation from the superintendent to , the effect that the young man is entlret ly sane, and that he will be released In j <he near future.
