LU ETTA SMITH
FAR TOO KEEN
TO BE TRAPPED
Lawyers Fail to Shake Testi*
mony of Cfeief Witness
Against Doctor Burke
Woman of Strange Beliefs De«
dares She Will Not Sue
Alleged Dynamiter
HARRY DAVIDS
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SANTA ROSA. Dec. 14.— J. H. Oetjen,
a member of the jury trying Dr. VTil
lard P. Burke, was attacked with ague
and chills today and made necessary
the postponement of the case until Fri
day. At the adjournment L«u Etta
Smith was still en the witness stand, to
all appearances as keen and emphatic
as she was when she first began her
str&r.ge testimony last Thursday.
In the face of her rep.iarkable story
:'-nrf still more remariicble beliefs theft
has fcetn transferred to her the Interest
snd curiosity usually centered in the
defendant in criminal cases. The pub
lic eer.timent of the community, in
yinc; to fatnom the workings of her
mentality, :n endeavoring to harmon
i~e her statements with her shrewd and
quick niir.d, has lost sight of Doctor
Bi-rkc ar.d the dynamiting- charge. To
rpad her theories arouses a doubt as
to her *>anity, and to agree with the
defense that the woman Is a victim of
hallucinations. To see lier on the wit
ness stand, parrying with retort and
answer the skilful questioning of two
of the best attorneys in Sonoma county,
10 observe her, coolness where another
woman would be in hysterics, to watch
her comprehension and grasp of all
subjects brought to her notice, removes
all thought of her being insane. Never
once during- the entire long cross ex
amination did she allow herself to be
Trapped: never once did she trip. At
fiir.es. after she would make a sensa
tional answer, it seemed that she had
broken down and the public expected
her total discomrlture momentarily, but
she would smile and with an explana
tion or a word make her position
stronger than ever. -
WOMAS A\ ABLE WITNESS
That she had a good working knowl
edge of court procedure was evident,
and the presumption was that she ac
oui-.-ed it while acting as stenographer
for law firms in Oregon. She seldom
asked to have a question re-read to
her. but frequently safeguarded her
self by saying:
"I have answered that question once,
An<j the probabilities were that she
liad. She seemed to be fully aware of
her privileges ajid rights as a -witness
find, under no consideration would sire
allow- them to be trampled. If the dis
tfict attorney defended her, well and
frond;. if not, she defended herself.
Her weakest moments were - when
Fhe trie<j to explain her metaphysical
•reasonings. Her language was cor
rect and fluent and her arguments, at
first blush, more than plausible. It be
jcsane evident, however, ac she proceed
ed that she was suffering from the
common complaint of indigestion from
over and rapid eating of the fruit of
lh*?tree of knowledge.
For the last 10 years she has satiated
herself with religious literature. She
has delved Into Hinduism, touched
Shintoism. gobbled philosophic treatises
against Christianity and dabbled with
all the flood of eocialistic and unso
ciable views of almost all the self
dubbed prophets the age' has produced.
The yogi man has found in her a ready
pupil. She has .toyed with telepathy
and snuggled -to the supernatural. She
has sought the unique, the strange, the
queer and seems to have found them
all — bat found them imperfectly. Her
philosophies are the result of her semi
education. They seem warped, wajnt-
injr. like structures on unstable founda
tions, shaken and influenced by every
P'.;st of passing thought.
Th*» woman is from beautiful.
Hhf 4 has high_ cheek bones, hollow
clerks and a poor complexion. Her
r*>d*»emsng features are her forehead,
\\!i!<~h is high and broad, and her eyes,
\u25a0which are penetrating, keen and sharp.
Ther*> !s not an iota of insanity in her
appearance.
TIK.M.S WITH MOTIVE
The Vase. as far as it has gone, has
dealt ruerrjy with the moti\-e of the
crime. Th*> charge proper scarcely has
l.f^n mentioned. The prosecution
hold? that Doctor Burke dynamited her
tent to destroy her and the baby and
thus rid himself of an embarassing
situation. Up to tb*» present all that
the state has done has been along lines
of proving the motive, its theory being
that Lv Etta Fmith. going to the sana
torium as a well meaning and virtuous
woman, was inveigled into a life of
<>vil by th* teachings of Doctor. Burke.
Th*rp, T«-as littlp in her testimony to
prove .that Doctor Burke imparted to
her any' of the views she holds at
present, apart from the thesis on free
love which lie gave her. Tn the minds
of a large number. Doctor Burke did
not.teach her these things, but took ad
vantage of her exotic beliefs.
From the evidence that has been
brought out. both by the prosecution
and the defense, the conditions at the
sanatorium surrounding the principal
persons in the trial were base and
vicious.
* Despite all that Lv Etta Smith has
said, the defense holds that she is
either the most flamboyant liar that
ever stepped into a'witness box or that
the woman is the victim of hallucina
tions. They have" failed" to prove either
fact on cross examination. . They tried
to show during the session .' of court
this morning that she was testifying
\u25a0with a view to bringing a civil suit
against Doctor Burke, but she denied
this emphatically, saying that she had
r.o Intention of suing Burke for the'
alleged dynamiting,, and that her sole
claim against him was for the support
of the child.
When the <^ase is opened ehe will
renew her testimony. There vis little
else for her to say. Every possible
Fubject has been thrashed out over
and over again, and the probabilities
are that a-fev/ more questions will
bring her examination to a close. That
the defense will'try to Impeach her is
freely admitted.
Kurtz to Be Witness
BERKELEY. Dec? 14.— Prof.. Ben
ismln Kurtz of the English department
of the university, probably will be
called to testify, at the trial of Dr.
Burke on the oharge of dynamiting the
cottage of Miss Lv Etta Smith and her
infant child. The- university faculty
man has been requested to tiold him
self In readiness to attend the trial."
An attempt will be made to s^iow that
Miss Smith and Professor Kurtz were
close friends. \u25a0 . , \u0084
"Miss Smith and I bore the-relation
ship of instructor and student," said
Professor Kurtz today. "I^never.- mev

once or twice, there when she .stayed

More than 100 tots -In this city were

behind him a goodly array of dolls : for
the girls and toys for the boys, and. big
boxes of candy and red and gold; Christ
mas calendars for everybody. The toys,
piled high at the base of beautiful
trees, gaily decorated and Illuminated
with the: fairy lamps ; of the , season,
were distributed after the Children had

Christmas cheer.

A great deal of patn and suilertng 1
; might be avoided If we had some
; knowledge of physiology and the care
:of the body, particularly those parts)
that do the most work and should al-
ways be kept strong and healthy.
In an Interview with a prominent
physician he states that people should
pay more attention to thefr Icldneys. as
they c/ratrol the other organs to \u25a0 a
remarkable degree and do a tremendous
amount of .work in removing "the poi-
sons and waste matter from the system
by filtering the blood.
• During the winter months, especially,
when we live an Indoor life, the -kid-
neys should receive Borne assistance
when needed, as we take leSs exercise,
drink less water and often eat more
rich heavy food, thereby forcing the
kidneys to do more work than Nature
intended. Evidence of kidney trouble.-
such as lame back, inability to hold
urine, smarting or burning, brtek-dust
or sediment, sallow complexion, rheu-
matism, may be weak or irregular heart
action, warns you that your kidneys
require help Immediately to avoid more
serious trouble.
,An herbal medicine containing? no
minerals or opiates has the most heal-
ing Influence. An Ideal herbal cos»-
pound that has had remarkable success
as a kidney remedy Is Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root. .^PH
