MRS. LEAKE INTERVIEWED ShoTell9 a Local Paper What Sho^Saw and It Is Taken as a Groat^Boost for the Prosecu^^tion-No Jury. SanFrancsco, Aug. 16^A local pa^^per says the last link In the chain^of evidence against Theodore Jlur-^rant has been discovered. A woman,^whu lives across the street from Kman-^uel church, has reported to the po^^lice that she saw Durrani and MlOSflha^Lament enter the church at 4:10 o'clock^on April 3, the day of Miss Lamont's^disappearance. The woman's name is^Mrs. Leake and she lives at 124 Hart-^leu street. She Is M years of age and^has been I member of the church a^number of years. She knew both Dur^^rant and Miss Lamont Intimately and^therefore cannot be mistaken with re^^gard to Identity. She says she has re^^mained silent since the discovery of^the bodies of the two girls because she^did not wish to undergo the annoy-^ance of being a witness in the case^and did not consent to divulge her In^^formation to the police until s!ie be^^came convinced It was ft duty she^owed the state. OnApril 3 Mrs. Leake sat at a win^^dow of her residence nearly all after^^noon looking for her daughter, whom^she expected to arrive from San Ma^^teo. At 4 o'clock she saw a couple^coming up the street, one of whom^she Instantly recognized as Durrani,^but at first she was puzzled over the^identity of the girl. As the couple^came nearer Mrs. Leake recognized the^girl as Blanche Lamont. Miss Lamont^wore a girl's short dross and carried a^package of school books. The dress^and school books were afterward^found secreted in the church. When^the couple reached the church gate^they stopped for a moment. Durrani^opened the gate and they passed^through. Mrs. Leake from her point^of observation was watching them^and when ihe girl stepped through the^gateway she said to herself: ^What^^n Imprudent thing for her to do. Mrs.Leake know nothing detrimen^^tal to Durrani. She had always con^^sidered him ^such an exemplary young^man,^ but notwithstanding that fact,^she thought it exceedingly imprudent^for a girl to go into a church with him^alone. She feared some one might^have ocen them and might make un^^pleasant remarks. She imagined they^had some errand in church and ex^^pected that In a few minutes they^would come out. She watched care^^fully, but the gate did not open. ThereIs only one entrance to^Emanuel church during the week and^that Is by the side gate and rear door.^Mrs. Leake knew the young people^would hav^ to pass through the gate^and she waited to see them on the^street again before she left the win^^dow. She waited a long time but her^household duiles finally called her to^another part of her fiat and she was^obliged to give up the vigil. Mrs.^I,cake's testimony completes the chain^of evidence against Durrant. Threeschool girls saw Durrant and^Blanche Lamont riding 011 a I'owell^street ear at 3:30 o'clock on the after^^noon of ihe day that Miss Lamont dis^^appeared. Attorney Martin Quinlan^saw a couple a few blocks from the^church ft few minutes before 4 o'clock.^Now conies Mrs. Leake who says she^saw Durrant enter the church a few^minutes later. Mis.Leake's standing in the church^of which she has long been a member^Is excellent, and her testimony is con^^sidered unimpeachable. The attor^^neys for the defense were somewhat^disturbed in court to-day over the^publication of Mrs. Leake's narrative.^The- prisoner also showed signs of un^^easiness for the first time since his^arrest. The defendants attorneys^declined to discuss Mrs. Leake's story,^but admit Its seriousness. Outof U0 veniremen summoned In^court to-day all but 22 were excused^by the court on various pretexts. None^of the remainder were accepted as Ju^^rors, and court adjourned until Mon^^day. THOUSANDSKILLED. CONDITION OF TRADE. Br*t'. Report.
