when court adjourned this evening.
Three hours to-morrow have been al?
lowed for summing up arguments,
after which Judge Spain will deliver
; his charge, the last act preliminary to
giving the case to the Jury.
After the defense had rested late
to-day, the State offered several wit?
nesses In rebuttal to contradict por
' tions of the testimony of Mr. and Mrs.
Beach, and during this proceeding the
j identity of the mysterious "man behind

between Beach and his wife In the

Johnson was not permitted to give an

i the brother of a negro servant, and he
declined to make any answer what
Morles Told Simply.
Both Besch and his wife told their
: stories to the Jury In a simple way.
The prosecutor cross-examined each
; of them at great length, and called
their attention constantly to state
' ments they are slleged to have made
I previously, differing in some detail to
their testimony to-day. They brave
, ly stood by their guns at all times, and
I would not admit that any part of their
j narrative to-day was incorrect.
Mrs. Beach said she was assaulted
' by a "ginger-bred colored" negro, who
approached her on pretense of having
a message for a negro servant. She
declared that the negro laid violent
hands upon her. slashed her throat
' anil hit her on the side of the head
with the -tick; that she was too much
i frightened to scream at the first at
] tack; and that when she did scream
'? her husband came promptly to her as
: sistance as the assailant fled.
At no time. Mrs. Reach said, had she
: entertained any idea that the negro's
j motive was robbery
Beach did not remember any con?
versation with his wife in the Mayor's
office, neither did Mrs Beach Both In?
dignantly denied the intimation that
there was any suggestion of fasten
i lng the crime on any person.
Though her face was fiery red and
. her voice trembled with emotion, Mrs.
Beach delivered her narrative calmly,
deliberately anil with an amasing
memory for details of all that hap
pened except during those few mo?
ments when she was struggling with
'The life was terrified out of me."
she said. "I could not utter a sound
Then suddenly I found my voice and I
yelled and screamed hysterically."
Her Manner Defiant.
Ouring her cross-examination Mrs.
Bench leaned forward in her chair,
shoulders slightly stooped, and gsssd
squarely at the prosecutor. Her mea?
ner was almost defiant at t!;-..es when
he asked her a question that she re?
garded as Impertinent.
"I'm sure 1 don't know." was her
favorite answer at such times, and she
would repeat the phrase, over and
oeor, whenever he would press for an
No one within the radius of Mrs.
Beach's smile could fail to feel the
effect of her personality.
Bearh told his story slowlv but well.
He impressed one as belonging to the
familiar English type. Slots to grasp
the ,mport of some of the questions
put to him, he would hesitate until the
matter had had time to revolve fully
In his mind. When the prosecutor
would remind him that c.-rtsln points
in his testlmonv were si v.irlance with
th- stories he had t?ld st the time of
the assault, h- would Insist that the
way he told It to-day was the way It
happened and that he never had re?
