Times from Shanghai says that it is re

Their immunity from destruc

Yuen having netting to protect her
from torpedoes, rind the other quick
firing guns, enabling them to resist the
Cttacks of the Japanese.

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. Attorney Erwin at once recognir.ed
the iir ;ortanco of this testimony and
tried to have it stricken out entirely.
