IX The first witness introduced by the state this morning in the Harry I lay ward mur der case wns Peter Vallalie, tho hack man of whom Hurry ha I spoken to Adry as being1 willin;r to assist in the proposed crime. Valialie's testi mony corroborated in a striking way one portion of Adry llayward'n re markable story uu.l thus rendered thoroughly untenable the defense's pet theory as to Adry's sanity, lie testi fied that Harry llayward had ap proached him with (j iustions as to whether he had ever "done auything," and, if so, whether his conscience had bothered hi:n. Wayward later asked him whether ho would drive a hack into Lake Calhoun and let tho occupant drown for a .sum of money. "I told him I was no swimmer," said he. "and that was about the end of it." This is tho fjrsteorroboration of tho stories of Illixt and Adry obtiined from an entiro outside source, and ex hibited in a striking way Haywood's careless way of asking incriminating questions and making damaging state ments.

Tho court, however, refused to sustain his objection, and the evidence g-oes to the jur3'. IMlnoWi Step! rompiinjr nure. Chicago. Feb. !3.
