Dead Man Weeps as the Story is Related
Before the Coroners Jury
Hi order to narrow the scope of
this investigation and to expedite the
woik In tho hands of the jury I de
siro to make a statement regarding
this accident in behalf of William
Howell and others whom Judge Bag
toy and myself are representing
These words spoken by Attorney
Johnson before the coroners jury this
morning In tho Faut case caused a
ripple of suppressed excitement as It
forecast an Important announcement I
Last Friday afternoon William I
Howell John H Larson Elliott Ken II
nedy and George Larson continued I
MY Johnson arranged with certain I
parties to attend to a little political
business Saturday afternoon tho fol
lowing day
And before proceeding further in
the story I want to say that I and
Judge Bagloy as attorneys for the
parties arc responsible for the silence
on the part of our clients that has
heretofore been kept We deemed It
advisable to say nothing regarding
this awful accident until such time
aa wo considered would he opportune
and fitting and that time is now at
hand That the story has not been I
told by those we represent Is not
their fault at all Mr Bagloy and I
have advised that silence should pre
vail on their part
When the Ride Started
On the afternoon of Saturday last
the boys met at the garage and se
cured Mr Howells automobile to
make the rounds The machine was
taken from the garage heavily hood
ed The curtains were all closely
drawn This was about 230 in the
afternoon The machine was taken in
charge William Howell and was i
driven by him during tho balance of
the afternoon
Tho party first went to Wilsons
grocery store on Pacific avenue and
Twentyeighth street whore they re
mained until about 3 oclock They I
then went to other places In the city
both on business and pleasure and
returned to the garage at about 5
oclock In tho evening The lamps on
tho machine were lighted as it was
getting rather dnrlc
Having done this and it was not
yet dark not being 5 oclock they
went out again and went down to
wards the depot on Twentyfifth
street and among other places they
wont to Mr Denny Smyths and visit
ed with him and his family there and
tho people who were assembled there
at the hotel They went Into the ho
tel with Mr Smyth and saw a number
of things there which he was showing
them and stayed there some time Af
ter that they left there and going

oepting the Orpheiun
fourth street they came up Twenty 1
fourth street until they came to
Washington avenue Having come to
Washington avenue they made a turn
at that point and went toward Twen
tythird street They went along the
cast sldo of Washington avenue and
at this time permit mo to say that
Mr Will Howell was driving the ma
chine while John Larson was sitting
at his left Mr Kennedy was sitting
Immediately behind John Larson on
the real scat and George Larson sat
in the rear of Mr Will Howell by the
side of Mr Konndy
Running at Low Speed
They went to the cant side of
Washington avenue and turned down t
the street going north They went
on without interruption and as they
think without any high rate of speed
but at a very moderate rato of sliced
and crossed Twentythird street In
turning the corner of Twentyfourth
street and Washington avenue they
slowed up speed as of necessity they
would have to do to make the turn
When they reached Twentythird
street the speed of the machine was
also slowed down and crossed at a
slower rate of speed than they had I i
been running at prior to caching that i
point r
I They Hit Something
Having crossed Twentythird street
on tho east side of tho track the left
I wheel of the machine just about over
the east side of the cast rail of the
stret car track they had proceeded
down from Twentyfourth streeL Af
ter they had passed Twentythird
street they also proceeded along that
some line straddling this rail on tho I
east side of the railway track When
they hod proceeded some distance
they now know to the point where
this unfortunate accident occurred I
which Is as a matter of fact about
100 feet something like that north of I
tho north Hue of the Intersection of
Twentythird street and Washington I
avenue being ver > near to a polo or
two poles that stand in the middle of
tho street one being the telephone I
ploc and the other being the street
car pole having proceeded north to
that point suddenh the machine was
felt to swerve to the left just slight
ly not a great deal
And hero permit mo to say that I
Mr Will Howell was sitting at his
machine with his hands upon the
steering wheel and also with one of I
his hands in touch with the power I
with his feet upon the brake and
looking in front nil the time and ho
ne r at any time during the whole
course of this travel after having
crossed Twentythird street until he I
reached this point or at nnv time ob
served this gentleman that unfor
tunately it seems al that particular
moment was crossing the street
r rica to MISS Poles
He never saw him and what Is
more none of them saw him but aa
I say when they reached that point
near to where these poles stand the I
machine was felt or observed to
swerve to the left That of course
would he towards tho west Vhon
that was done Immediately before
them and before Mr Howell who was
guiding tho machine were these poles
standing perhaps as far as from here
to that window six or eight or ten
feet In making the swerve It had
brought the machine so that instead
of facing down the street north along
the stret ear line It had faced wesl
anil brought them face to face so to
sneak with the poles Mr Howell
observing that immediately swerved
his machine still further to the west
so as to avoid coming in contact with
the poles He went around the > ole
and proceeded on the left Ride of the
track and of the street down the I
strot for perhaps 50 or 100 feet or
something like thator course dis
tances of this sort arc purely matters
of estimate when Mr John Larson
who was sitting by his side said
Did we strike something or We
did strike something or words to
that effect and Mr Howoll said
Did we
And Immediately upon Mr Larson
making that remark Mr Howell
turned the steam off from his ma
chine with his foot on tho brake put
the brake on and reduced the rato of
I running of the machine until It al
most came to a stop In the mean
time they had progressed possibly 100
I or 200 feet from tho point where this
swerve had occurred In the mean
time also John Larron wiio was sit
ting by his side was looking back
through the back oj tljc machine to
see what ho could observe as to
whether or not they had struck any
thing Also when the machine came
almost to a slop Mr Howell who
was as I say sitting on the right
hand side looked out around the cur
tains of his machine to nee if he could
see anything
Machine Vas Hooded I
You will understand gentlemen
thnt this machine at that time was
I hooded and had Isinglass or a glass
I In front and on each side of It Next I
to Mr Howell and next to Mr John i
Larson it was open of course fo they j
both looked back and John Larson
said No we never struck anything I
we better go ahead and so the mat i
tel passed from their minds They
put on the power and went down to J
Twentysecond street turned to the j
went went down to Wall avenue and
came up and stopped on Twentyfifth
street j
In addition to what I have ex
plained as to how this occurred at j
that time as stated by Mr Howell
and by Mr Larson Mr John Larson I
tolls u ° and I presume you gentlemen I I
know him a member of the city coun
cil Just elected In the Second ward
says that about the time that this
swerve was made in the machine he
felt a jar In tho machine on his side I
Mr Will Howell tells us that he felt j
no jar at the time of the swerve Mr
Kennedy who was silting In the rear I
of John Larson and on the left side
says that he felt a jar George Lar
son who was sitting behind Mr
Howell says he didnt feel any Jar at
I all at that time So the testimony of
these gentlemen respecting the mat
ter is that those who were sitting on
the left hand sldo of the ma
chine felt a Jar as though
they had passed over something
as expressed by Mr Larson or Air
Kennedy as though they would pass
I over the roll of the street car track
or somethlnc of that sort Thov also
say that they never heard any nol > c
al that time or any call at that time
from anybody except Mr Larson
says as they were proceeding north
after they had begun to stop that he
heard over on the sidewalk on one
sldo or the other a call of sdmc sort
but he never paid any attention lo It
or thought about It coming from the
sidewalk and he never called the at
tention of Mr Howell to that at all
Heard No Noise
These other gentlemen who were
sitting in tho rear heard no noise I
You will understand also as I said in
addition to the fact that the machine I
was hooded or closed that It had
chains on the wheels In the rear I
which made of necessity noise as I
well as also the exhaust which comes
from the steam
Now having passed around and
left that point they came around to i
Twentyfifth street and the first that I
they know that this unfortunate ac
cident had occurred was when their
attention was called lo It by Mr Had I
lock who told them that they were
wanled here at the police station
They told us and T tell you that when I
they were proceeding aong Washing
ton avenue and il the time when this
accident occurred they were not going 1
at any exorbitant rato of speed
Ac to the Speed
They think they were within the I
limits of the speed that is permitted I
under the ordinance However that I
may be It may be that It will be a
matter of Inquiry for this Investiga
tion and all that we ask in this con I
nection with respect to that matter is I
that there arc witnesses to that trans i
action and saw the accident when It I
occurred who say that this view of J
these gentlemen Is correct and that I
they vero not making any great rate 1
of speed notwithstanding we are in
formed also that there are those who
claim that o tremendous rate of speed
was being maintained at that time
As to Drinking II
Also we desire to say In the In
terest of our clients here having made
to you a free voluntary statement J
of this transaction as It occurred as
wo know It that it has been Intimated
that these gentlemen were drinking
at that time and had been during the
afternoon We have not Interviewed
one gin < lr unlit In rf uiir < pt to Iliol mn I
I ter hUlr we only ask that In Justice J
to our clients In this investigation
lint the police officers who came In
contact with these people immediately
after this tiling occurred the men and
women with whom they were assoclat
ed and with whom they talked im j
mediately boforo it occurred shall be
called If any question of that sort
shall he raised in this investigation I
Hat Thrown Away I
There Is one further matter I de
sin to mention In this connection I
do not consider now that we have
made this statement to you that it is
of any great Importance In this inves
tigation but considerable has been
said about it through the newspapers I
and ctherwise and therefore having
undertaken to make to you a fair full I
and complete statement of this trans
action as we knovr It 1 desire to say
at this time that when theso gen I
tlemen came around here to Twenty
fifth street and were spoken to by Mr
Hadlock that they took the machine
to the garage and they put It In Its
place and when they had gotten out
of the machine Mr Kenned happen
ed to see somewhere on the body of
tho machine a hat Ho said some
thing about It and 1 believe that Geo
Larson beard It nobody else heard It I
When he saw tho hat thoro on tho
machine he picked It up and pitched J
II over Into a machine that was next
to it whose machine It was I do not i
know Again Mr Kennedy mentioned
the fact that there was a hat there
as they wore coming up here in com
pany with Mr Hndlock Will Howell
told him Well go back and get It
and he did He left the crowd to go
back to the garage and like many an
other man who has been suddenly ar
ctised 01 doing something that was
I wrong and filled with that sort of pe
culiar terror that comes to Individuals
j I suppose when they are accused of
crime and they not having a criminal
instinct he went hack and got the
I hat and foolishly threw It In the alloy
this side of the garage Now that Is
r the fact with respect to this hat
transaction which you have heard
about and he today regrets more than i
an other man in this house that un
der an impulse a foolish impulse he
did it If It was any crime then ho
was guilty of a crime If It throws
any light upon this transaction and
how this man was killed In this tin
fortunate accident then go Into it and
verify what I have stated to be tho
facts in the face I
Now gentlemen of the jury and If
the court please and counsel for the
state as well as counsel for the family
hero represented we saw tit to keep
silent and say nothing notwithstand
ing all sorts of rumors wore current
on the street until the present time
That Is to say Mr Dagloy and myself
who had been called in consultation
as attorneys as to what these gentle
men bad best do under the circum
stances to say nothing until the time
came when it would be proper for
them lo speak and when they had
spoken or I or Mr Bagley had spoken
for them that they would he here In
the court room ready to he put under
oath and this whole matter Inquired
Into and they then could tell for them
selves as I have lold you before just j
exactly what this transaction was jind
their connection with It I
Court a Complete Investigation
As T said in the beginning I be I
Hove by making this statement now I
that It will largely narrow this trans
action You arc now rid of any neces I
sity for attempting to find oul who
were the parties whowere driving that
machine when this man unfortunately I
was killed and this accident which
I every cne of these men and every ono
of us who are here present and every I
I body everywhere must of necessity re
gret But It has
unfortunately oc
curred and these are the facts and
tho connection of these men with it I

John H Larson city councilman
from the Second ward was the first
witness lo take the stand Ho told of
the trip taken by himself Will How

of Mr Larson corresponded in all ma
terial facts with that given by the at
torney In his opening address to the
Jury j
Councilman Larson Testifies i
Mr Larson said that he and the I
party wore driving along Washington
avenue at about the lime of the al
leged killing of Mr Pant but that j
they were moving at a moderate rate I
of speed perhaps eight or ten miles i
an hour They proceeded along the
avenue on the cast side of the car
track but that at a point near tho
north side of the Twentythird street
intersection the car was driven close
to the car track ono wheel of the
auto being on the Inside of the east
rail of the street car track
At about 100 feet north of Twenty
third street the witness said ho felt
tho automobile swerve at the same
time there being a perceptible jar
and he noticed that the auto turned
to the left BO as to miss the poles In
tho center of the Htreot just in front
of them The automobile he said
was a sevenpasaeivser car a White
steamer and that he was sitting on

of the car at any time and did not
know that thev had run over anyone
Felt the Jar
After going a little farther along
Washington avenue on the West side
it occurred to him that they might
have struck something which paused
the Jar to the machine they had ex I
porlonced near the street crossing He
said he called Mr Howells attention I I
