Started keeping saloon in 'till. Was married then. Was sepm-uted from my first wife in Juno, '74. Her name was Anna lirown. Was in the saloon business in Chatswortli. Afterwards in Waioeka. !iit married the second time at lli'iiiiinjrtnii in March or April of '7-j. Kept saloon in Kl l'aso. Moved from there to heiison and worked there for my brother John. Tended saloon for my brother Joe at I'.enson. Went to Streator in '70. My drother Joe and I ran a saloon there until July '77. Then started in the saloon busi ness for myself. My wife often helped me to tend ba- occasionally. We had a piano there. Mrs Weast played on it part of the time. There was a lady from Chicago there who sang rtith Mrs. Weast when the boys came in for drinks. I might have asked the boys to play cards with my wife. There were two buildings and we cut an archway between them. One rotm was tor billiards and the other was for pool. There was a small room for cards. I will not swear that my wile played in these rooms with gentle men. My wife has not drank with my cus tomers in these rooms. I have not asked men to go out buggy riding with my wife. I have uot seen my wife waltz near the bar and exhibit herself. (Here the prosecuting attorney asked the witness if he had not often bet that his wife could kick higher than nny one in the saloon. Here the wit ness jumped up, his face flushed, and he made a move as though to go towards Molo. ny. Quiet was soon restored, the court staling that he would not permit any such questions that there might be occasion for new criminal proceedings if the matter was not slopped. The court here sustained a number of objections made by W east's coun sel, one of the questions objected to being whether or not he had drawn a revolver on General Huff.) I have not threatened to kill l'arks. (A circular containing some of the most vile and beastly references and in ferences was here handed to the witness and he was asked if he did not throw them around while keeping saloon, to which he replied that he did not know. He would not deny no assert anything concerning it.) Have had very little schooling. (Some of Bull's penmanship was shown prisoner and he said he that he could not read it. Some of the letters puporting to have passed be tween l'arks and his wife were shown him and he said that he hail read them quite of ten.) Met l'arks first at Benson iu about the properly. Prior to my going to Europe I am not positive that l'arks was at my house. He was at my place of business three times. Adolph Miller traveled with me in Europe a little. He hid uot return with me. Hannah Johnson returned with me. I met her in Bremen. She did not leave my house be cause my wife would not let her stay in the house. She came to Chicago with me after I landed. I got a passage ticket for her at Jos. Wilson's. My wife wanted her to come back and work for us. She said that she wanted to see friends in Minonk. My sister Barbara then arranged it so that she could work for her in California. 1 did not have her board let Mrs. Williams'. I did not state to Mrs. Williams that her name was Gray and that 1 intended to make her my wile It was one year before I went to Europe that 1 bought the ticket for Hannah Johnson. She sent it back to me from Kiu-upe slu.rtly after she received it. I boii!:lit tin ticket she came back on at Stoiichouse, England. She paid her way from New York to Chicago. She had !?IOO with her. Met her nt the tie pot in Chicago and at the Juliet depot when the came there from New York. She did not stay at the same hotel 1 did. She had written that she was going to Minonk to see her friends there. iMn't know whether she wrote to Mrs. Weast or myself. There was nothing in the letter asking me lo meet her there. When we got to Juliet and on the way to Minonk, spoke to her several times on the way down, lion't know whether I spoke to her after Parks got on the train. After we got to .Minonk she and I went up town to where she wanted to slop. Her age is about 1!). Ileturned home next day, Oct. H. My wife and I did not have a fight when I got home. She as just going up town when I got there. F asked her it' Parks was there night before last. She sail no, that he hud been there three or four hours in the morning. After I got the Parks' letters 1 read part of tlieiu. My recollection is that I stayed at home that night. Oct. S, and she did not. I understood from her that on Thursday evening she had telegraphed Tom Parks. She said lo me some timo in the evening that she had telegraphed to Parks at Benson and thai he would come and make it lively for u e for say ing that he bad been writing to lir. She did not ask me what were in the letters I found. The dispatch 1 wrote to Parks Friday morning told Parks to come up. Hid this by request of my at torneys to get the property changed. 1 wanted him for no other purpose than to sign the deeds. Took Murdock with me to do the talking. Was not drunk. Have nut drank anything for six or seven years to amount to anything. Got the dispatch from Parks T html ay morning that he could not come. Did not tell my wife that I was go. ing to Benson. lon"t know how she found out that 1 was at the depot. (Friday, Oct. 0.) Had not shown the letters (Parks') I got 'Jiat morning to either Murdock or Wal ter K'eves. I knew their contents to a cer tain extent. Did not tell any one about them at that time. Don't know whether I told any one about them before the shooting. (Here a recess of five minutes was taken. The witness on resuming described the situ ation of the parties in the room, where the shooting took place.) Don't remember shoot ing Parks. Had a struggle. Don't remem ber following up Parks and shooting the second time. Don't know what was said nt the time the consultation ws had in the room. Could not tell what time I came to my senses after the shooting. Did not see Tom Parks afterwards until that eve ning. Do not know a man by the name of Murr. (Here Marr, who was in the au dience, was requested to arise, but the de fendant did not recogniie him.) Carried a revolver occasionally before I came to Strea tor. Do not know a man by the name of Schwabacker. 1 cannot explain to the jury why it was that 1 had my senses to a certain extent when 1 went np to l'arks' room. The reason that I can't explain is that my heart is broken since then. After I got into the room, Parks naked me to take a chair and sit close to him. Mrs. Reynolds did some work in the house after the shooting. She went there by the request of Mrs. Weast to help her park up to move to Chicago. 1 and the two children and Jennie Grunden went with her. This was about Oct. L'O. She went to live at 12 ''J Burlin sircet. First went to the Windsor house. 1 stayed two nights there. 1 rented the house for her and shipped goods fiom Streator there. I went back to Streator and placed my little girl in the Convent. Don't know whero Jennie stayed. Knew that Parks was dead before I left Ottawa. Stayed at Matt While's all Sunday. Don't know why I didn't tell the Sheriff that 1 was here, Ottawa. 1H. K. M. m'aKTIII'H. Beside tit Ottawa for over thirty years Am a physician and surgeon. Have been practicing medicine over twenty years. Am a mMdualo of Bush Medical College. Have been during the war examining surgeon of tins illstnct. Has pension examiner ui mis district. Said Bull: Dr , suppose a man was shot by a pistol ball, &e., such as occurred to Parks, what would be your treatment of the wound on the lSth? If there was much hemorrhage I would cut down and tiud the vessel. 1 would cut from the inside of the wound longitudinally up and down, taking the course of the femoral artery. Would endeavi r to secure the femoral vessel by ligation and would ligate both above and below the bullet wound. If it was a large vein I should ligate the femoral artery to permit the flow of blood downwards. The hypothetical quesiion was again put by Bull and it was asked if, in his opinion the course pursued by the physicians was bad surgery, on the hypothesis that the femoral artery was wounded, to ligate tho femoral vein above the bullet wound when the femoral artery had not been ligated. It would not be good surgery and would cause septisemia or blood-poisoning. To tie .the long saphe nous vein and not the artery afier he had eudund much suffering would probably cause death. The continued operations of the kind indicated would have a very unfav orable effect on the patient. Crots-Examination: A bullet passing through the femoral artery at the point indicated is not necessarily a fatal wound. mi. R. F. DYER. Reside in Ottawa. Lived here oince '05. Have acted as physician and surgeon for f0 years. Graduated at Cincinnati. Am now pension examiner. The hypothetical ques tion was put to the witness, Bull going over the same statement of the case with a de scription of those operations. To this ques tion the doctor said it was not correct surgery. I consider it an error in surgery to not tie both euds of the vessel. It is incorrect surgery. In my judgment the effect of these several operations would, with the last operation, terminate in death. At close range a pistol ball will do as much damage to the tissues as it would at long range. Crust-Examination: If, after the first oper ation, there was re current hemorrhage 1 would conclude that I had made a mtstakf . On the second operation I would go on until I found the bleeding vessel, that is if it was one of the larger arteries. If I had found one of those larger ones bleeding anil tied it I would stop. While it is quite difficult to bind the vessel, yet it is imperative to do so. I do not think that the distinction is made by medical authorities that both ends of the artery must be tied when theoperatiou takes place immediately after the wound. As far as my reading and knowledge go fatalities are from 18 to 1'2 per cent.; wlitre musket balls and shells sever the femoral artery t n the field of battle, from 75 to 80 per cent. 1 would always ligate both ends of the artery. l)It. CIIESTKR 1IABK. Re-dde in Ottawa since 1H5D. Have di plomas from Bush Medical College and Mi -souri University. The hypothetical question again was submitted to tho doctor and he wis asked what in his judgment would be the correct treatment to apply to that condi tion of things nine days later. The correct thing to be done would be to find the woutnl e I vessel and then ligate it. This treatment is an important line of surgery. To on i, tieinj the lower or distil end of the artery would be to have a re-current hemorrhage. The mistakes made in lieing the vein for the artery was incorrect surgeryand would dam age the probability of the patient's recovery. Placing the patient under the influence ol anesthetics and subjoining kim lo four suc cessive operations would have the effect of as many successive shocks to the patient, and would diminish his chances for recovery. I think that the result would have been more favorable had both euds of the arlery been ligated on the i coa-doti of the first operation. Tenth Iav. Co, i-1 pened this morning with a remark ably siiglit attendance. The reporters gath ered to their respective places one by one. Witnesses were called for by the prosecution and attachments issued against those absent. The jury filed in from their quarters some time after court was convened, and Duncan said, "Your Honor, we rest our case." Mo loney said, "We desire to ask the defendant Peler Weast another question." He was asked if he knew David Baker and John frapp, of Streator. To the questions put the answers were, "I don't know whether I did or nut " The evidence in rebuttal then began. IHVIIl lUKKIt. Saw Peler Weast at John Trapp's saloon with his brother Joe the next evening alter the shooting. (Bull here objected lo the question put by Mtdoney as to whether Ba ker had not asked defendant in the saloon why he had not kilkd him, and not crippled him. The objection was argued at great length, but the court finally ruled that the witness might answer the question.) Weast said it was a mistake; his intentions were good enough. II AIM! AIM RKYSOMpS. Was at Weast's house two days before he and his wife went to Chicago. They go. along very well, except the second day; when, she said on cross-examination, that Mrs. Weast came home from town and she said she had a notion to shoot Weast. She told me that if I found nny letiers about the house to hand them to her. She said they were letters from Mr. Parks, and she did not want Pete to ee them. IKSNH 1'ABKS.

My mother told me to sit down and copy as close as possible my father's handwriting. She said that there had been forged letters and she wanted me to see how nearly I could resemble the writing. Mamma also got me to copy the let ter dated Oct. 14. Copied some at home and some up here. Had a copy of the letter be fore me when I did the copying. rait), w. cads testified that "Weast's reputation for truth and veracity is bad, 1 think." Cro't-Ezawmation. Weast and I have hsd no personal controversy that I know of. He has told me that he would swear to a lie. I would trust him in matters of business.
