Defense Continues Presenting
Case Much Expert Testi
mony to Be Heard.
MINEOLA, N, Y., Nov. 2S. What is
expected to be a lengthy battle be-
tween medical experts over Mrs.
Bianca de Saulles' claim that her
physical condition produced a lapse of
accountability when she shoo her di
vorced husband was initiated in the
young woman's (rial on a charge of
murder In supreme court hero today.
. Dr. J. Sherma n Wight. Mrs. de
Saulles' physician since the tragedy,
testified that the patient's condition
following the shooting indicated that
she was suffering from an enfeebled
functioning of the thyroid gland from
an inadequacy of the secretions of this ,
gland. This brings about an inactiv
ity of the vital processes, Dr. Wight
Would End in Mental Infirmity.
Mrs. de Saulles" attorneys claim tho
condition outlined by the physician
produces a brain and nerve center
condition which eventually ends in "a
hopeless mental infirmit'." This dis
ease, the defendant's lawyer terms
"hypothyrcosis." This name, however,
was not used by Dr. Wight.
An X-ray photograph of Mrs. de
Saulles' head which Dr. Wight claims
shows a depression of a portion of one
of the skull bones just above tho fore
head, was introduced in evidence.
This portion of bone was dislodged,
the defense claims, when Mrs. de
Saulles sustained a fracture of the
skull some years ago. It presses upon
the brain, it is declared, and may have
been a contributing factor in bringing
about the temporary Joss of respon
sibility during which she asserts shOj
fired tho revolver shots in her hus-i
band's home on Long Island the night
of August 3.
MINEOLA, N. Y.. Nov. 23 Alien
ists, X-ray specialists and other prom
inent members of the medical profes
sion who will testify concerning tho
defense's claim that Mrs. Biance do
Saulles was suffering a lapse of re
sponsibility on tho night of August 3,
last, when her former husband, John L.
de Saulles, was shot to death at his
home near Westbury, Long Island, will
be asked a hypothetical question of
2,000 words in length.
The defense continued presenting its
case today, when the trial of Mrs. de
Saulles was continued in the court
Much of the expert testimony will
concern the thyroid condition, desig
nated "hypothyrcosis," by Mrs. do
Saulles' attorneys, from which they
claim the defendant was suffering at
the time of the shooting. This dis
ease, claimed to have superinduced the
irrational spell during which Mrs. de
Saulles' is alleged to have shot her,
husband, is hoped to strengthen the
defendant's claim of irresponsibility
for the act. i
Long Question Propounded. j
The long question, according to
Henry Uterhart. chief counsel for the
defense, is in substances as follows:
"Suppose a child was born in Chile
in 1894," continuing it will relate
many circumstances and occurrences
touching upon the hypothetical
"child's" life which might have a bear
ing on its mental condition in later
years. Uterhart says the question will
conclude in approximately these
"Now, Dr. , supposing
these premises were true that these
facts applied to some specific person,
what would your opinion as to whether
that person would be subject to lapses
First Witness Called.
D. Stewart Iglehardt, a member of
an importing firm, was the first wit-i
ness called today. The witness said
he and his wife had been acquainted
with Mrs. de Saulles family for some
years and had visited at the Errazuriz
home in Chile.
Iglehardt said he received a tele
phone call from Mrs. de Saulles early
the night of the tragedy. She said
she was "terribly worried" because
"Jack," her son, had not been re
turned to her home by De Saulles,
and asked him to go to the "box" with
her in an endeavor to get him. The
witness said he refused because the
service she received "was a delicate
Defendant's Sister Testifies.
Miss Amalie Errazuriz, Mrs. de
Saulles' sister, the next witness, cor
j roborated the defendant's story that
she suffered a fall when a child in:
which she struck her head against the'
fireplace and was severely injured.
De Saulles, Miss Errazuriz testified,
asked her mother to buy him an estate
in Chile while he and Mrs. de Saulles
were visiting there. Her mother said
she could not do that, but offered to
give her son-in-law part of Vina-del-Mar,
her estate near Santiago. De
I Saulles insisted upon being given com
I plcte control of the estate and when
I this was refused the young woman
I said ho treated her mother "rudely."
Second Injury to Head.
In reference to an automobile acci
dent in which Mrs. de Saulles claims
she sustained another injury to her
head, the witness said her sister was
confined to her bed for "four or five
days" following the occurrence. This
happened during a visit to Chile after
Miss Errazuriz also gave testimony
in support of the defendant's claim
that De Saulles sought to alienate his
son's affection from his mother
through a nurse whom he engaged for
After visits at his father's home.
Miss Errazuriz said the boy would be
unmanageable when he returned to
his mother's custody.
"Jack told me that Booble (his nick-

Un Use For Over 30 Years

name for the nurse) told him 'act
bad' when- he returned to his mother,"
the witness declared.
Boy Told of Gay Parties.
The defendant's sister said thai
when returning from these visits with
his father tho boy told her a number
of "gay parties" given at "the box,"
De Saulles' home.
With the revolver with which Mrs.
do Saulles shot her husband, the wit
ness then demonstrated the manner in
which it might be discharged. Al
though equipped with a safety device,
Miss Errazuriz said the pressure of
the hand on the grip of the revolver
was sufficient to release this catch and
that consequently only one movement
was necessary to fire it,
Chileans Carry Revolvers.
District Attorney Weeks maintains
that two movements of the hand are
necessary to discharge the revolver
and that this would indicate that Mrs.
de Saulles was not mentally Irrespon
sible when she fired the five shots at
her husband. Miss Errazuriz said re
volvers are commonly carried by wom
en in Chile.
Suzanne Monteau, Mrs. de Saulles'
maid, who accompanied her on the
automobile trip from her home to the
"box" just before the tragedy, was the
Maid Tells Excited Story.
Her French, accent and excited man
ner made it difficult for the judge and
jurors to understand her story and she
was frequently interrupted.
"When Mrs. de Saulles entered the
living room sho said she came to take
Jack," declared tho witness. 'He mado
her such an awful face," she con
tinued after a pause.
"He said 'you can't have him now
or never.' " The witness was so a'f
fectcd that it required fully a minute
to regain her self-possession and con
tinue the tale.
"I was standing right by Mrs. de
Saulles and could seo everything," she
went on finally. "He was facing her.
I saw Mrs, de Saulles get awfully
"Then what happened?" asked Judge
Manning, when Miss Monteau hesi
"She shot him," sobbed the witness,
apparently overcome by her recollec
tion of the tragedy.
Cross-Examination Confuses Witness.
On cross-examination District Attor
ney Weeks seemingly confused the
witness in reference to details of the
shooting. There wore discrepancies
in her answers to Weeks' questions
when compared with those she said
she made when a deposition was tak
en from her a few days after August 3.
Parts of this deposition was read by
Weeks apparently to indicate these
differences. At the lime of the prev
ious questioning Miss Monteau said
Mrs. de Saulles shot three times and
"de Saulles did not move" whereupon
she fired twice more.
Another part of the deposition quot
ed the maid as saying: "Mrs. de Saul
les put her right hand into her left
hand pocket, Liking out the revolver
and pointing it slowly in her former
husband's direction.' "
"Didn't Mrs. de Saulles say. just
after the shooting, 'I'm glad I did it; I
hope he dies?' "
"That is not so."
Witness Denies Charge.
Miss Monteau declared she had no
recollection of seeing District Attor
ney Weeks in the Nassau county jail
the day following the shooting. She
maintained she had no memory of con
versations with persons on that day
relative to securing bail.
The maid was held as a material
witness in $1000 bail, it had been pre
viously brought out in the trial.
Maid's Deposition Read.
Miss Monteau's entire deposition
was then read by Attorney Uterhart,'
following which Dr. Sherman Wight,
whom Mrs. de Saulles has testified
was the first person she remembers
having seen when she recovered her
senses in the jail following the shoot
ing, was placed on the stand.
In reference to an examination of
Mrs. de Saulles, which he made in the
jail on August 6 three days after the

seemed to take little notice of her sar
roundings. She looked pale it was a
peculiar, waxy pallor. There was a
puffy condition under the eyes. The
whites of the eyes had a bluish cast.
Pulse Was Feeble.
"The woman's temperature was be
low normal at 97. Her pulse was
feeble 56, when 78 would be normal.

Thyroid Gland Withered.
"An examination of her throat
showed the thyroid gland was with
ered." Subsequent examinations, the wit
ness said, served to convince him that
Mrs. de Saulles was suffering from a
deficiency of the thyroid glandular
substance, without which the vital
processes of the body became im

During one examination Dr. Wight
said he made an X-ray photograph of
Mrs. de Saulles' skull. The photo
graph was introduced in evidence.
It was a profile view of the skull.
At the point near the forehead, indi
acted by Dr. Wight, an appreciable
lowering of the line marking the top
of the head could be scon.
The witness said this abnormal con
dition resulted from a skull fracture
sustained some years previously which
had never been relieved by a tre
