Mr. Murphy was fortunate enough to dodge the direct forcent the blow, but the weapon, nevertheless, struck hint in a glancing manner on the right side of the neck, making a slight abrasion and breaking the linen collar. Chairman Murphy at .«ice grappled with his assailant and tried to wrest the hatchet from his grasp. Failing in this he dealt the fellow a blow in Che face which felled him to the ground and sent the hatchet flying into the middle of the roadway.

That the Doctor Told Detective Iiain.com Unit He Scut the Dottle to Denver. Alleged Suspicion« Action« of Drove. Dämmt, Dec. 9,—The trial of Dr. T. Thatcher Grave« for the alleged poisoning of Mrs. Barnuby was tiegun here in earnout in the morning. District Attorney Stevens «rom' to make hia address He said the crime with which Dr. Graves was accused was the most unique, original and cowardly ever perpe trated In the history of the world. "Jo rothmul B. Burnaby, the huslmnd of the poisoned woman,'' ho continned, "accu mulated a vast fortune. He was once a reuidvdate for governor and for ooagree«. In 1857 he married Josephine A, Reynolds,who belonged to an excellent family. Tltroe children, all girls, were born to them— Mabel, now Mrs. J, H. Conrad, who resides in Montana; Hattie, who died in 187U, mid Miss Maud Josephine, who has just arrived at the age of twenty-one yeans. graves, came from Danletaonvillu, Conn, The revenue from his profession was very small. Continuing, Attorney Stevens Graves Appears Nine years after their marriage Mrs. Bamaby was stricken with paralysis. It be came necessary for her to employ malils and servants iu doing tho simplest household duties Designing people took advantage of her illness and consequent cliildishness to further their own covetous ends at the ex pense of the invalid, 'ti m defendant, Dr. the Sdmi*. s;dd Mrs. Burnaby had bwn intrednood to tlie doctor by Mrs. Hickey, a former em ployee, and the doctor became her physician. All her visit* to his office were without the knowledge of the Bamaby*. In October, 1Ü80, Mr. Bamaby died and left a will. Knowing his wife's helplessness, he gave her $3,500 u year and a home a* long a* she should live. Theu Dr. Grave« influenced the widow to contest the will, and Colonel Bal lou and hia law partner were employed by Gravi» to represent her. The daughters, to avokl a contest, cut their ca*h allowanue in two and paid their mother $105,000. How tinm*« Hot K early A few days later, said Mr. Steven«, Colonel Ballou, whether acting under in structions of Dr. Graves or Mrs. Burnaby, mode a will for tho latter, in which her new made friend, Dr. Grave«, was given $35,000. After the trustee* had mad« the first pay ment of $15,(XX) to Mrs. Burnaby iu settle ment Dr. Gravi» paid Colonel Ballou $10,000. In JKU0 $10,000 more wa« paid to Graves from tho widow's fortune without her knowledge. On March 31, Ihoi, the final $NO,0OO was paid and that too unknown to Mrs. Barnuby. A few days, gentlemen, be fore thin fatal bottle of poison was mailed from Boston to Denver this $»0,000 was paid to her trusted friend. The attorney said Mrs, Bamaby passed the summer of 1WK) in the Adirondack*. Dr. Graves introduced her to Hall«' Han ley, urging the latter to accompany her to the Adirondack*. She went and so did Dr. Graves and Mrs. Graves. The Bennetts were there, and Edward Bennett, the Adi rondack guide, serve»! them. Upon return ing Dr. mid Mrs. Grave* and Bailie spoke in the highest terms of the Bennett*. Mr. Btevens then alleged that late in ISHOGraves wa* afraid someliody might supplant him in Mrs. Barnaby's confidence. Grave« stated tu» Mrs. Hickey that Mrs. Bamaby was dis satisfied with him, but that if she interfered with him she would 1*) sent to an insane asylum. Th«* Fatal Until«' of Whisky. In 1800 Mr*. Baniaby went to Chester, Pa., Without Miss Henley, and incurred ht*r ill will. Mrs. Burnaby visited Mrs. Hl H. Worrell, the two became friends, and in IS01 went to San Francisco and in April came to Denver to visit E, 8. Worrell, Jr., who had received a bottle sent by Dr. Graves through the mail for Mrs. Baniaby. The contents, os the doctor graphically stated in his letter, were to help her "rheumatism and her memory." The bottle Iwre a fifteen rent stamp and the Boston postmark. It wa* indit'd March NO, 1H9I, and ninety-five rents were required to carry it through the mails. Tho bottle was labekd "Accept this bottle of fine <ild whisky from your friend in the woods," The flftoen cent stomp of the issue used was not sold in Bouton at the time that the bottle was mailed. It was sold iu Provi dence, showing that the buttle wus mulled in secrecy, not fear, Mb* Drank til« I'uisuned Liquor. On April 13, 1891, Mrs. Barnahly and Mrs. Worrell bad token a long ride and returning At evening were very ranch fatigued. Mrs. Bamaby thought of the supposed whisky and gave som«' to Mr*. Worrell, who imme diately said on taking it, "Why, this «* not whisky." Mm Bamaby drunk of it never theless and both wore taken violently ill. Mrs. Bamaby died April 19, 1891, five days after she hud drunk the poison. For Oree«l and Gain. Continuing, the district attorney said: There could have been but one motive to have prompted the killing of Mrs. Burnaby, and that motive was greed and gain. It is a significant fact that on the arrival of Mrs. Bamaby in this city slut had intended to draw the funds from the management of Dr. Grave* and give them into the charge of Mr. E. 8. Worrell, Jr. She asked the doctor to send her her will, but he replied that the will wus inaccessible because it was locked up in a safe deposit vault in Boston. It is three hours' ride from Provident» to Breton and there are forty or fifty trains a day.. Attorney Stevens then said that on April 19 Dr. Grave* woe notified that if he would see Mrs. Bamaby alive ho mnst hastep to her iwdside. He should have arrived in Denver Wednesday. He did not, however, arrive until Friday, six days after her.death. When he dkl arrive he asked no queutions as to the cause of death or the comlitiuu of her effects. The reasons given by Dr. Graves why he »lid not arrive sooner were Important. He told various false stories about being sick, missing trains, etc. As a matter of fact be stopped at Sterling, His., and at Cedar Rapids, la. Grave«' Freuliur Action«, Dr. Graves never went near the body, but defamed Mrs. Burnaby's character. He said she hud many lovers and bad been criminal ly intimate with Mrs. Bennett's husband in the Adirondacks. Graves had twice told Detective Hanse* imb, whom he believed to be Charles Conrad, that he liad sent the bot tle, but that it contained pure whisky, anil he advised "Conrad" to go back home and ivase to press the case, a* it would cost "Conrad'' too mach mom'y. He added that the confession must not be repeated, but that if he bad put a rope around his neck be could not help it. In conclusion Mr. Stevens said that the poisoned whisky could not have been prepared by anybody except one acquainted with chemistry. JOAQUIN MILLER'S BANDIT SON.

After the usual mesnagen hud been sent to the neunte and to the pres ident containing the notification that the house was ready to do business, the grand lottery for the ponscssion of seat* took place, and the bouse adjourned. Speaker Crisp's Hands Fnll. No further business will lie transacted of oounte until Speaker XTisp announces tin* oommlUeee. and the pleasant task of arrang ing them may keep him at work for a week or two. lu the meantime the house will adjourn from ihiy to day to givo him oppor tunity to complete his task. The scenes in the house throughout tho afternoon were lively, inter» »ling, and occasionally invit ing. Tho desire to sc« the new speaker "mount th*. throne" was very g» nerul.

As the derk gave out the result there was a burst of applause, In which everybody joint'll except Roger Q Mills, who hung over tho railing in the rear of the hull, fiercely chew ing the end of reflection. Mr. Crisp was »**■ oorted to the chair by Mr. Mills ami nx Hpookcr Reed and miulo a short speech, it» which he promised to discharge his dutieo with courtesy and impartiality. Ho wan loudly applauded. There were two incidents in the organ ixation which, though slight in themsol vus, have created tw> little comment. The Bret was the declination of Mr. Mills to servo on the enmmitteo to notify the president tliat the house was ln Session. These appointe ments are purely honorary, and are accord* •id only to the older ami more prominent memlsTs. Tlie other was the indiffurenoa of Mr. Mills in w 'beding his seat. I«a«t year the distingni died Texan occupied » si at in the very center of the Democrutk: quarter. This year he choe»' one In the extreme rear of the chamber. The general opinion in that Mr. Mill* is thus early in serving notice npoix Speaker Crisp that he purposes washing hia hands of all mqsmsibllity for the conduct uf the hou*». It is also believed that be will decline the chairmansbfp of the cummltteo on ways and means if it 1» tendered to him, and content himw'lf with a more modest chairmanship us a further indication of hia d-sire to do his duty as a Democratic mem ber of the haute and nothing more.
