ON THE RACK McCamish Examined Rig orously Yesterday THE TESTIMONY IS ALL IN THE ARGUMENTS WILL OCCUPY TWO SAYS Contest of the Creede Will Set for Trial—Finding of Judge Shaw on a Note Transaction The testimony in the McCamish mur der trial has ended and the arguments of counsel that begin this morning will mark the beginning of the end. The theory of murder contended for by the prosecution is founded altogether upon, circumstantial evidence. There is one peculiarity of the case that marks this trial as distinct from any other ever held ln this county. Mrs. McCoy Pyle has been a good witness for the prosecu tion and in one important point did eminer.t service. She it was who identi fied the ring put in as evidence as being the one, to the best of her belief, that McCamish used to wear. The defendart claimed that his ring was taken from off his finger by the men who burglarized his room, and the ring submitted by Mr. Williams in evidence was found hidden in defendant's room at Fillmore. The identification of this bit of personal property was important, and Mrs. Pyle, having had many opportunities of see ing the defendant's ring upon his fin ger, made the identification far more close than it otherwise could have been. And yet the prosecution in seeking to ■how the motnve that animated the de fendant, and that prompted him to kill McCoy Pyle, introduced testimony which was intended to hold up to the Jury the murdered man's widow, and their own witness, as a false wife and in heart herself a murderess. True, there is a saving clause. The reflections upon Mrs. Pyle were, in. the case of Mad- Json's noted confession, supposed to emanate from McCamish, who, the pros ecution may contend, made the state ments to serve his own purpose. M'CAMISH RESUMES HIS STORY Yesterday morning McCamish re sumed the thread of his ctory, begun on the day previous. "At the fourth shot," he began, "the fellow carrying the bundle cried out, 'Oh, Bill, I'm shot,' and dropped it. He picked it up with his left hand and ran after the other robber. I then went to Pyle and saw blood on his face and he lay still. I pulled him further inside the house, and then went to Arnott's house and gave the alarm. He went to the bunk house to rouse the men and on. re turning I asked if there was a mattress to take over and lay Pyle on.lt. He gave the order and we started for the switch. I then examined Pyle to see how much he had been hurt, and saw blood over his face and when Arnott asked how he was and If he was alive I answered he was dead. He promised to inform the •heriff for me." "Now how did he fall?" inquired Mr. Davis. "He fell inside the house," answered the witness. "And what did you do?" "I asked him if he was hurt." "And what then?" "He did not answer, and I picked up his pistol lying on the floor and put it ln my pocket and dragged him further Into the house." HIS BELONGINGS IDENTIFIED Witness identified the three pistols ln evidence, bit upon the several knives being submitted, repudiated their hav ing ever belonged to him, save the one with handles made out of a scale beam He aIEO denied the new black Fedora hat being his; the crown was higher and in his hat the sweatband was soiled:, where as the one submitted appeared perfectly new. The cuff buttons, set with imita tion stones, were also denied by the wit ness, the buttons he had lost being marked with his initials, E. M. C. The shirt in which the buttons were found, however, was identified by witness as being similar to one of his own that was stolen. The plain gold ring, wrapped around with a piece of twine, witness also denied as being his. He acknowl edged having a plain ring, but lighter in weight than the one in evidence. It was cut diagonally across and string was wrapped around to prevent it from cut ting his finger. The defendant went on to tell how his sister had taken it off his finger while he was sick, and put clean string on, as testified to by his sister. Witness couldn't tell if the white silk handerchief was his or not; anyway, he said one of his had his initials worked in blue thread.. The dark coat, vest and pants, buggy robe and buckskin were Identified by the witness as his own, as well as a lot of miscellaneous effects. "You have heard testimony as to the finding of the hat, ring, handcuffs, cloth ing, etc., Introduced, now I want you to tell what you know about that?" "After I was arrested," said witness, "and taken to Ventura jail, a Call re porter told me the 'things had been found ln my room." I didn't give him much satisfaction then, but after he left I was thinking what things he meant, and where I had put some of my things. My sister wanted me to return home with her, and I said I would go to Hanford. I had leather hinges put on a box and packed a lot of things in it in readiness if I went. The buckskin and lap robe I was going to give to my brother-in-law, and a lot of baking powder I had no use for I Intended to give to my sister I packed the box the first day I went down town after my sickness. I afterwards determined not to go to my sister's, and went to Bakersfleld instead. Later, when Mr. Snodgrass was talking to me ln the Jail, I told him where I thought a lot of the things would be found, and that I had packed them away and had forgotten all about them. To Dally Lineberger I told the same thing on the Wednesday I was brought down here and before the articles had been found according to the testimony given." "Now, why did you tell Pyle when he was reporting the loss of the things over the telephone to tha Newhall ranch not to report the beam-handled knife?" asked defendant's counsel. "I told him I didn't know If the scale beam knife had been taken. I said that because on the 21st something happened' to Pyle's harness and he borrowed my knife and did not return it. At the time I was uncertain whether the knife had been returned to me by him or not." "Did you ever say to Lucian Edwards that you thought Pyle was going to die before fall?" "No, sir. We were going from Fill more over to Bardsdale and had a con versation, merely about stock." "And was a remark made by you about Mrs. Pyle?" "No, sir. I don't remember it. If I did it was a casual remark of gratitude for her kindness." HIS REGARD FOR MRS. PYLE Witness went on to contradict em phatically in detail the several wit nesses who had fathered scrappy re marks about Mrs. Pyle onto him, "Were you in love with, or moved by any feelings other than those of grati tude to Mrs. Pyle?" queried. Mr. Davis. "No, sir," was the answer, made with emphasis. "Did you ever make any improper proposals, to Mrs. Pyle?" No, sir." "Did you ever see anything improper in, her conduct or behavior?" "Nothing whatever, sir." "Did you ever say anything to her that you would not be perfectly willing to say in the presence of anyone else?" "Nothing whatever." "Did you ever say to Bunnell that Mrs. Pyle was 'too di —d good for him?' " "Certainly not." "Was Pyle a good friend.of yours?" "He was the best friend I had in the country." "And what was your feeling for him?" "I had a gre-at regard for him." "And what about Mrs. Lineberger; was she a friend of yours?" "Well, I didn't think much of her." "Did she speak to you at that time?" "No, sir." "Did she speak at that time to Mr?. Pyle?" "No, sir." "Did you say, as iStanley Routledge has stated, that you intended to hand cuff one man and tie the other with a rope?" "No, sir; we had two pairs of hand cuffs, and had no use for a rope." "Did you show Mr. Wilson two pairs of handcuffs?" "Yes. sir; and explained that this pair worked on a double swivel," THE NEGATIVES CONTINUE "Did you make that alleged confession while in the Ventura jail to the prisoner Madison?" "No, sJr; I never did." "Did you ever state that you killed McCoy Pile?" "No, sir, I didc not." "Or that Mrs. Pyle was 'tickled to death' upon hearing that her husband had been, killed?" "No, sir." "And that she intended to poison her husband six months before? "No, sir." "Did you say anything at all to any- ! one in the jail as alleged in tho state ment of Madison?" "No, sir." "You were taken to the Ventura jail on the Monday night and left on the Wednesday for Los Angeles, did you not?" "Yes. sir." "And on your arrival at Los Angeles to Sheriff Burr you denied the killing, as you had up to that time to all others?" "Yes, sir." "Now, Mr. McCamish, did you, on April 24th, kill or shoot at the deceased, McCoy Pile?" "No, sir." THE DEFENDANT ON THE P.ACK That ended the statement of the de fendant. Mr. Williams then took the witness in hand, and beginning at the time of the alleged robbery, he went over not only the facts of the defend ant's own testimony, but these facts in the light of the testimony as put for ward by witnesses for the prosecution. Questions ambiguously framed and cal culated to betray the witness into con tradiction were put by counsel, and every effort made to induce the defend ant to explain the assertions of the prosecution. Counsel was anxious to know if witness had bought cholorform at Fillmore, Ventura, Sprlngvllle, Los Angeles or New Jerusalem or Santa Bar bara during the past twelve months, but witness replied that he had never bought any of the drug in his life. Mr. Williams, in pushing his investi gation regarding the choloform, inti mated to the court that the prosecution took the stand that the defendant had cholorformed his room on the night of the alleged robbery and drugged his room and the minister's tent on the Sunday morning. That defendant men tioned to Virgil Americus at the switch that the minister's tent had been chlor formed by the robbers, knowing what he intended doing and that the minister would corroborate him regarding the drug and thus afford presumptive testi mony of the truth of the statement. The court refused to allow the prosecu tion to go into this, sustaining the ob jection of the defense that it was not cross-examination and belonged to the prosecution's case in chief. Mr. Williams examined the defend ant on almost every point from the night of the alleged robbery to the time he was landed in the Los Angeles jail. J. Arnott, Sheriff Burr, Deputy Dis trict Attorney Willis and Guy Wood ward each successively went upon the stand and testified that they had gone to the Castaic switch in the early morn ing, about the time the shooting is sup posed to have been done by the robbers, and out of six or seven shots fired only three or four were heard at the corral of the Newhall ranch. That closed the case for the defense. REBUTTAL TESTIMONY Rasmullen, was put forward in rebut tal by the prosecution, as an expert Jew eler, to testify with regard to the ring put in evidence. The witness stated that the private mark ln the ring had been destroyed in the process of making the ring larger. He had made that iden tical ring larger, or one Just like it. Wit ness couldn't say who had brought the ring to be altered. The defendant stood up to let witness have a good look at him, but witness said he could only say he thought he had seen him before. He said it was about a year and a half ago when the ring he spoke of had been en larged. This testimony went in over repeat ed objections of the defense. The ooart admitted it, however, albeit acknowl edging that it was not rebuttal, on. the representation of the prosecution that the witness could not have been pro duced earlier in the trial. John Arnott, the Newhall ranch man ager, testified as to the dimensions of the Castaic platform. Dallison Lineberger then went upon the stand to contradict an assertion of defendant's. The latter never told him while coming down to Los Angeles that he had clothing boxed up In his room, nor had defendant at any other time LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 15, 1897 told him that. Witness also denied ever having borrowed the scale-handled knife, and never had it in his hand until he took it from defendant's trunk. A. Stone stated that when defendant returned from Bakersfteld, at Sims Stone's house, he told him he had lost his ring In the corral, fhat witness' brother found it and defendant wrapped twine around it because it was too large for his finger. This testimony was or dered stricken out, as in the cross-ex amination, of defendant the proper foundation for it had not been laid. Mr. Williams then said he would put the defendant back upon the stand. The court, however, said that he had no power to order the defendant back upon the witness stand, any more than he had before the defendant went on in the first place in his own defense. Wilson, the Castaic section boss, was> recalled to contradict the defendant's allegations that he and Pyle sat at the window of the house, and saw the rob bers approaching from the warehouse. Witness did not contradict fully, how ever, and gave it as his opinion, that from the window the upper portion of a person's body most likely could be seen. On cross-examination witness was questioned as to the heights and dis tances at Castaic, his answers conflict ing with those given by a previous wit ness from actual measurements. MORE EXPERT WITNESSES Dr. N. M. Moore testified that if chlor oform was thrown into a tent in such a quantity as to force a person to retreat it must have been thrown in a very few hours before. "I don't believe," said witness, "that enough could be thrown in to have any serious effect upon a per son and force such a one to retreat save from a dislike for the odor." Witness said also that if the drug should be thrown on Friday morning the odor would have disappeared by Sunday morning. The odor would find a vent lr. twenty-four hours. If a room was air tight it might be longer. Dr. Bryant testified that under the circumstances, as propounded to the previous witness, he thought a person would withdraw rather quickly. He stated, however, that the volatile na ture of chloroform is such that he did not think that the odor would remain from Friday morning to Sunday morn ing. That closed the rebuttal testimony and the case. Judge Smith stated he did not wish to limit counsel in their arguments, but he gave them two days, within which time he insisted that counsel must con clude This morning Assistant District Attorney Williams will open for the prosecution, and as he expects to occupy six or seven hours in the presentation of his case, he will scarcely get through today within the ordinary hours of the court. Probably a night session will be held. Attorneys Rush and Davis for the defense will not take more than about six hours between them, and then Mr. Williams will have another crack at the defendant in closing. MOST CORRUPT PERJURY Walter Taylor, the Rape Fiend, Goes Free Walter Taylor, who was being held to answer the charge of assault with intent to commit rape upon 13-year-old Clara Murphy, had his case dismissed yesterday on motion of the district at torney . From evidence which has come up within the last few months Taylor was shown as a systematic debaucher of young girls. His name has been men tioned as the author of their wrong by several children who have figured in court, andi it seems a pity that an ex ample could not have been made of him. Deputy District Attorney McComas yesterday, upon moving for a dismissal of the case against Taylor, stated that the mother of the girl had stated that the facts she had sworn to at the pre liminary examination were lies, and she was not prepared to swear to the same statement at the trial. As it was not thought that a conviction could be ob tained without her testimony It was con sidered useless to put the county to the expense of a trial Judge Smith, on this representation, ordered' the case dismissed and the bondsmen of the defendant exonerated. On the showing made by the district attorney there might be little chance of convicting the man of the infamous charge preferred against him, but the chance of convicting the woman of per jury seems excellent. DAMAGES GROWN OLD Suits Against the Southern California Railway Under Advisement The old-time suits of James against the Southern California Railway com pany to recover $10,000 as damages, and of Woodworth against the same com pany to recover $67,000 came up before Judge Allen yesterday on defendant's motion to strike out and also on defend ant's demurrer to the complaint. These suits are identical ln their na ture with the one that occupied the at tention of Judge Van Dyke and a jury some little time before vacation. The lands are in the vicinity of Frultland, and at the time of the flood, when the Los Angeles river broke through the levee, the plaintiffs suffered much dam age. Inasmuch as the railroad company had built the levee and negligently, as It is claimed, neglected to do those things that it ought to have done, and did those things it ought not to have done, these actions to recover were brought. The pith of the objections raised by counsel for the railroad corporation is that the suits are barred by lapse of time, and that the statute of limitaitons applies. Both motion and demurrer were taken under advisement. A CANCELED NOTE Judge Shaw Holds the Payee Must Act Fairly In the suit of J. M. Bruyer against A E. Temple, to obtain a cancellation of a note for $450. and 4he- releasetnf a. chattel mortgage given to secure payment, was passed upon by Judge Shaw yesterday in an opinion handed down upon de murrer. The sum of $457.50 was deposited. In the Los Angeles National bank for satisfaction of the note on June 4, 1897, but the. amount t.as $75 less than the amount of princi pal and interest due, and the tender was therefore insufficient. It was alleged that on June Ist the plaintiff saw the de fendant arid told her that the money necessary to pay the note was in the office of Mr. Shields; that the defendant refused to go to the office to get the money, but agreed that if he would bring the money to Santa Monica on the 2d she would be at home to receive It, and. would then cancel the note and mort gage. The plaintiff did call, but the de fendant was in hiding or absent and could not be found, and on the 4th the money stated was deposited In the bank. The defendant contended, that the facts did not show an, excuse for the failure to make a personal tender on June 2d, but the court holds that the authorlties are against her. When the payee designedly absents himself from home- for the-.fraudulent purpose of avoid ing the payor's tender, says the court, the payee cannotiset up, that, no tender was made, if in fact the payor had the money ready to be tendered, at the time and place required. The plaintiff was ready at the time and place agreed upon with the money, for the purpose of mak ing the payment. The defendant, by absenting herself from the house, could net evade the contract which she had made, nor prevent the readiness of the plaintiff to make the payment from op erating as a sufficient tender. In these premises Judge Shaw has overruled the demurrer. THE TIMES LIBEL The Old Grind Gone Over Again in the Brady Case Owing to the continued illness of Sen ator Stephen M. White, there was a probability of the case of Mrs. Mary Brady against the Times-Mirror com pany being again, continued. When the case was called in department three yesterday morning, however, counsel for the. defense was insistent that the case proceed, and Judge York continued the further hearing merely to 2 oclock in the afternoon. At that hour the trial of the case proceeded without Senator W r hite being present. In very large measure the old routine of testimony, as presented on the three previous trials, was gone over, the fol lowing witnesses going upon the stand or having their depositions read.: Fred N. Hamilton, P. M. Rainbow, Zella Great house, Mrs. Mary Brady and Mrs. Jud son. THE CREEDS! ESTATE Date Set for the Contest, and Monthly Allowance for the Child The matter of the Creede estate cam" up yesterday in department two, before Judge Clark. The proceedings were tame, however, the various branches'of the case simply being set for hearing. The petition for probate of the will was set for November 23. and thecontest filed by Mrs. Creede, the wlodw of th, wealthy mining man, was set also for that day. In other words, that is the date fixed for the fight over the will to take place. 'The matter of theestate and guard.iat* ship of little Edith Dorothy Creede was set for the 21st inst., and meantime the court ordered $75 as family allowance for her maintenance. Hew Suits Filed Charles O. Morgan vs. D. N. Foy et al. —A suit to recover $525 on a note. $75 attorney's fee and decree of sale against the mortgaged property. F. W. Lewis et al. vs. the City of Los Angeles—A suit to quiet title to lot 12, block C, of the Johnston tract. W. Chapman vs. Edgar Moore, as ad ministrator of the estate of Lloyd R. Coleman, deceased, et al.—A suit to have determined his title to an undivided half of two lots at Pasadena. Louis Phillips vs. Burgess J. Reeve et al.—A suit to recover $1150 on a a note, and that the property mortgaged be or dered soid. The Divorce Mill In the suit of Helene Ehlers ngoinst P. S. Ehlers, which in depart ment four yesterday on a motion for alimony, the court ordered $20 to be paid by defendant within ten days and: from thence on $20 per month during the pen dency of the suit. Court Notes The sheriff's deputies yesterday ar rested Frank Dow and Charles Martinez, the former in this city and the latter at Azusa, for being implicated In the bur glarizing of a store at Irvingdale a month or two ago. The will of Dr. W. F. Edgar, an old pioneer of the Pacific coast, whose be quests to local charities, etc., were given at length by The Herald last Monday, was admitted to probate yesterday by- Judge Clark. I. N. Moore, C. E. Gillen and W. J. Broderiek went upon the wit ness stand and testified as to the ac knowledgment of the will ,etc. Charles Harrison was brought up for examination before Justice Young yes terday on the charge of assault with a deadly weapon upon Joseph Reed. This is the defendant that was held to answer the charge by Judge Rossiter at Pasa dena, but as the papers in the ease were not forwarded within the statutory time a new complaint had to be sworn out. There were few witnesses present yes terday and the case was continued. COURT CALENDAR Cases to Be Called in the Departments Today DEPARTMENT ONE-Judge Smith. 2396 H. Henshaw, robbery. 2396 F.
