SPECIAL JURY FOR THE CASE Mr. Ppruance Trvlng to Throw Iphe Blame for ChlellOHhv's Mishap an >g Applegate * Nhoulilers—W III Try to Discredit Statement* liy Showing Animus. Vi Trial of the case of Herman Chielin sky vs. the Hoopes and Townsend Com pany for the recovery of $20,000 for the lots of an arm, is drawing near to an end. The trial has been conducted with marked ability by both Levi C. Bird for the plaintiff aud William C. Spruuuce for the defendant corporation. Yesterday afternoon the following witnesses for the defense testified that they never saw tho bells come off In the nut room: George Shiliinger, William B McKuight, George Miller, Robert Berkley, George W. Burtou, Howard Hinton. Charles Wouderlee said belts never came off unless they broke. Joseph Cork, colored, sail they came off very seldom, aud then only because they were too loose John Finley never saw a belt off, ; but he had seen boys cn the stringers, r Harry Jacobs never saw a belt off except when it was being repaired. Hinton succeeded to Chielinsky's machine, aud the belt never came off the main shaft. He said that ou the day Chielinsky was hurt, Walter Applegate put slicks in tho boy's machine and oiled tho pulley, He did not think Applegate intended to do any barm Witness denied having said that be had frequently seen the boys on the stringers. Before the case was resumed this morning a jury was drawn from a special 'panel to try the case of Annie E Me Qinty vs. the Ford Morocco Company, the plaintiff suing for $30,000 for tne losscf a hand while working in the company's fsetorv. The plaintiff was represented by William 8. Hilles and WilliamC. Spruance appeared for the defendant. The case was calendared for trial on Jane 14 The jarors drawn were as follows: Lewis U. Lynam, Samuel II. Bayuard, Sylvester Murray, U. H. McMullen, J. Frank Eliason, J. A. Weldin, Alonzo S. Whitlock, Richard Clayton, William Lawton, James Gros s&n, J >seph Derriokson and Jasou Davis. Chief Juatice Lore warned the jurors not to talk «Ith auyone. aud told them that if they were approached they should re port the matter to the conrt. They were then discharged und the Chielinsky case was resumed. Howard Hinton, who was on the stand yesterday afternoon, was recalled and testified to the liability of the belts coming off Leon Crowley, the next witness, a former employe of the company, testified that, on the day of the accident, he saw Walter Applegate take a wooden wedge and a hatchet, saying; "Wait till you see me get the Dutchman mad I" "Whom did Applegate mean by 'the Dutchman';' asked Mr. Spruance. Mr. Bird objected, saying that It was a matter for the jury to infer. The court sustained the objection. The witness then said that Applegate drove the wedge under Cbieliusky'a machine and followed this ap by throw lag the belt off Mr. Spruance was evidently trying to throw the blame for the accident on young Applegate's shoulders, be haviug been discharged on the day of the ac cident The defendant will try to die créait his testimony by showing animus. George Crowley, a brother of Leon, corroborated his testimony and said that Applegate pnured oil between the belt and the face of the pulley Crowley said he did not bear the ex pression. "Wait and see me make the Dutchman mad " The paliey that Applegate oiled was the one upon which the counter-belt ran It did not throw the bell off Applegate's manner did not indicate that he wanted to do anybody any harm The boys were all laughing and talking together during the noon hour. William Waguer, aaother employee, testified that he had worked for the company for about four years. He worked In the cutting room, bis machine rounding off the ends of bolts. From the machine he could not see into the nutting room. There was always work there. Ha contradicted Oscar Guild's statement* that there were frequent in tervals when he could not work. The witness said he never went into the nut room because he never bad any business there. He was in a position to see In the nut room about thirty times a week. He never saw the halts off. He never saw boys up on tho stringers He denied that Guild had to wait an hour each morning and evening for work. Mr. Bird tore Waguer up ou the cross examination, because he said that Guild was discharged from the company's em ploy, but he did not get him to retract anything he had said, Wilson Hemsley, colored, testified that, at the time of the accident, he was emp'oyed in the nut room His business was to attend to the horse and carriage, run errands aud dispense bolls to whole salers and keeping bolts and nuts in the boys' boxes. At times he would run nutting machine, but was not expected to do it. He remembered when Chielinsky was brought to the room for work. Mr Schiller brought him and stayed ten or fifteen minutes. Schiller said something about the bays keeping dewu off the stringers. He told 'he boy that it the main line belt came off or broke Henry Barrett; would fix it, and that if the belt from tne counter shaft came off Hemsley .would fix it. Chielinsky was the only boy he ever saw climb out on the stringers put the main line belt on the pulleys. He denied that be sent Brown up put on a halt or wips oil off the pulley. He denied Guild's statement that bo leased Chielinsky or Brown, because be could not get the Hue belt on The belt from the machine to the counter would run off sometimes because it was slack. It would not come off more than once a day. the counter Tbe belt from to the line shaft wonld cot come off often. In the five mouths he worked in tbe room the three line belts didn't come off more than six times, LORD FROM LITTLE DEUW ARE. On gen's New Governor Was Rorn in the Little Town of Camden, la Kent .

In the first place, we have un investigating committee that is Investigating. There was much doubt of this for a lime. As I said to Senator Lex ow, while I never questioned the Integrity of the committee, I did doubt whether tho senate would stand hack of them and per mit them to ferret out the facts.
