TWO. IMPORTANT POINT The Defense In the Postal Cases Secures a Val uable Ruling;. LEGAL BATTLE IS ON Hearirjj of Machen, the Grofla and the Liorcnzes Promises a Pretty Contest of Wits. No Point Will Re Left Unibufjht By the Defense to Strengthen Its Side. Washington, Jan. 16. In the trial of August W. Machen, the Grofl brothers and Dr. and Mrs. Lorenz, charged with conspiracy to defraud the government, the defense scored an important point with respect to the character of evi dence to be introduced at this time by the government. The defense insist ed that the government had not brought forth any documentary evi dence showing the existence of a con spiracy to defraud the government and FEBr.T 8. HEATH. that that which was being offered nat urally should follow the evidence of conspiracy so as to specifically connect the defendants with the various trans actions which had been referred to. The court sustained the point. At one point in the trial Mr. Douglass, for the defense, called on Justice Pritchard to reprimand First Assistant Postmaster-General Wynne for volunteering the statement that a former employe of the postofSce department recently has been sentenced in Baltimore to a term of two years in the penitentiary. The suggestion vas not complied with but the justice instructed the jury that their minds must not be prejudiced by the statement of Mr. Wynne. Perry S. Heath, former assistant postmaster general, who was subpoen aed from his home in Salt Lake City to state what he knew about the ad ministration of his office, was placed on the stand. Heath was visibly ner vous, but made his answers slowly and deliberately. No changes in the post ofSce administration had been inaug urated by him, he declared. He said the Groff fasteners had been accepted before he took office. Heath said he had never known the Groffs nor had he ever seen them until he entered the -court room. Vote Buyer Punished. Chicago, Jan. 16. Alderman John Brennan of the Eighteenth ward was taken to the house of correction last night to serve a sentence of one year for violation of the election laws.

Later Dr. Miles, President of the Grand Dispensary, discovered that defects of these delicate centers were a prolific cause of many weaknesses and diseases of the various bodily or gans. If an engine does not receive sufficient power it cannot do ts work. The same is true of the lungs, heart, stomach, liver, kidneys, womb, blad der, etc. Loss of nerve power is a prolific cause of consumption, dys pepsia, headache, pain, Brights' and heart disease, nervousness, debility, etc. This discovery is rapidly revolu tionizing the treatment of this class of diseases. Cases that were former ly incurable now yield readily to Dr. Miles' new treatment. Weak nerve centers cause or complicate every lin gering or chronic disease. Persons having any weakness or disease, should read Dr. Miles' "Neuro pathy," a booklet treating on Nerve Cure for all chronic diseases, which will be sent free. It contains many interesting facts and fine illustrations of the various brain centers which control the numerous organs. It shows the seat of life where a pin prick will cause instant death.

PROBABLE MURDER MYSTERY Foul Play Suggested In the Burning cf Three Persons. Terre Haute, Ind., Jan. 16. Coroner Tabor is making an investigation of the causes leading to the death of Mr3. Elizabeth Wardell and her two daugh ters, aged seven and fourteen. The bodies were found burned to a crisp in the ruins of their home, which was destroyed by fire. At first it was supposed that the house was burned by fire from an old and broken stove in the bedroom, but later Coroner Tabor made a thorough examination of the bodies and found that all the skulls were crushed and the brains were fried by the heat of the fire. It is possible, according to the coroner, that the heat burst the skulls, but the brains being cooked as they were, indicates that the skulls were first crushed and then the house set on fire. In examining the bodies again Cor oner Tabor found that the abdomen of Bessie Wardell was split open before it was burned. The incision is clean cut and the coroner believes that it may have been made with a knife. A circumstance which leads to the belief that there was foul play is that threats are said to have been made against the Wardell family. The fsher is at Michigan City prison, serving a sen tence for attempted assault on Edith, one of the glrls.who died in the flames. Another Chance for Dunn. Indianapolis, Jan. 16. Charles W.

In the netition for a rehearing It was earnestly insisted that no evi dence showed Dunn even to have seen the little girl on the day she was mur dered, and that the chief evidence against his character was not worthy of any belief.
