Defense Seeks to Show That
Surgical Shock Killed
" \ Charles Sollcrs
Floyd Quotes Conversation;
• With Prisoner and Ad
mits Mistakes
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
'. STOCKTON. Nov. 9.—"1 aimed to kill;
there's no use denying it," Is the way
Samuel B. Axtell explained his actions
to Constable E. S. Floyd, the, state's
star witness in the murder trial that is
attracting so much attention here. •
That the defense may argue before
the jury that Charles Sollars died from
the effects of the operation performed
shortly after he'was shot was indi
cated by the cross examination of the
physicians who were called this after
"Much hinges on the definition of '•sur
gical shock."
J. E. Nelson, in whose office Sollars
died, testified at the close of the session
this afternoon that death was due to
surgical shock.
* Nelson said that surgical shock did not
necessarily mean shock produced as the
result of surgical operations. ' In this
particular instance, he said, death was
duetto the laceration of the liver and
stomach* caused by the bullets fired
from Axtell's revolver.
Dr. A. M. Tower, Dr. William Fried
berger and Dr. J. D. Dameron also ex
pressed the opinion that death was due
to the original injuries, and that if the
operation had not been performed Sol
lars would have died in two.or three
hours from hemorrhage.
Attorney McNoble said that the de
fense desired to prove that "it was a
frameup" on the part of the physicians
to show death was due to the original
injuries. ' -. . ■ .
Constable E. S. Floyd of Lodi, who
arrested Axtell and brought him to
Stockton, occupied the stand the ma
jor part of the morning. Floyd said
he met Axtell the morning of June 16
.near the Lodi garage. He passed the
time of day and moved on. The next
time he saw him was about 10:15 at the
First National bank in Lodi. '•
"I said, 'Sam, what have you done?*"
testified the constable. "'He replied:
'You know; 7 what we were talking
about on the car coming from 'Stock
ton- I'll be ready to go with you in
a few moments.'
"Ellis and George Steele came in.
Everybody was excited. Axtell said he
* wanted to telephone to George Kettel
man. I heard very little of the tele
phone message.
"Judge Steele and I and Hamma, the
"driver, started for Stockton in the auto.
We drove to the Villinger residence.
Axtell said, 'Drive over to the house, I
want to see my wife.' He spoke to her
for a few moments. I stood six feet
behind him and did not hear what they
said. ,
"We talked about several things on
the way to Stockton. I asked Axtell
how many shots he fired. He said: 71
think I fired three. I'd have got him
the first time if that old man had not
been in the way. I put in eight cart
ridges when I left home.'
.--"I started to unload the revolver and
he said: 'Floyd, if you don't under
stand that you had better let me un
load it.' Five cartridges were taken
out of the gun by Axtell. 7 They were
in the chamber of the gUn when I
turned It over to the under sheriff.
-'I was seated in back of Axtell. We
stopped at the Hotel Stockton. We
had dinner there. I asked Axtell lif
he and Charlie Sollars were friends.
He said they hadn't been friends for
years. " .<■■;/.; ■.. , ?■
"Steele asked Axtell,if he wanted a
dVink. He replied that he didn't drink.
Axtell said the reason he wanted to go
"to Stockton was to meet some friends
to get bail." : .
Floyd said that while on their way
from the hotel to the courthouse some
one approached them and said: "Ed
Sollars is dead."
"I turned to Axtell," said Floyd, "and
remarked, 'Did you hear that, Sam?
Charlie is dead.' 'There's no use deny
ing.* he said, 'I aimed to kill.' " ;
' Floyd was asked . to .* repeat the con
versation he had had with Axtell in
.the interurban ? car before the shoot
ing. The conversation was about ar
ticles concerning the automobile acci
I "I met Axtell In the car," said Floyd,
"and he said: 'Did * you see that article
in the Mall? What did you think about
it? ■ It was my business to stop It. I
went over there and gave them a Jack
ing up about It.*" ; 7 7-**'- r
Attorney Ashley subjected * Floyd v to
a severe cross examination. T^^^ot^S
, The witness admitted ? that some of
•his testimony was at - variance " with
„ that he gave at the preliminary exam
ination, but said that he was mistaken
* during.the preliminary. The testimony
was not at o variance as to ? the : state
smen ts made by Axtell, but as to where
the conversation took place.7^^Jßp|R
Among the witnesses who saw Axtell
the morning of "the shooting were E.

Julius Bogden, a dry? cleaner, whose
place of business Is** directly across the

This Lotion Better
lIP Than Face Powder I
:■*■■■—-■ * -"x.xy- _ »_ , .
7 "The remarkable improvement in
feminine '^ complexions the past few
years," says Mrs. Mac Martyn, writing
for the New York Daily. Record, "is
due: chiefly to discarding : face powders
and usfng some good lotion.
"One of Ji the least ex pensive and
best face lotions can be made by dis
solving 4 ounces spurmax in j%| pint
hot water, to which has been added
2 teaspoonfuls glycerine, or if you
prefer, use witch-hazel instead of
water, as it dries quicker. Apply spar
ingly to the skin and rub lightly until
it vanishes. This cleanses the skin of
blackheads, pimples and other im
purities, banishes wrinkles, roughness
and gives to the complexion a dainty
pink and white glow. The spurmax
lotion soon overcomes oillness and is
Invisible when on,"

Schlitz in brown bottles costs you no more than com

Light starts decay even in pure beer. Dark glass gives
protection against light.
All Schlitz is aged for months in glass enameled tanks,
so that it cannot cause* biliousness. It will not ferment in
your stomach.
If you knew what we know about beer, you would say,
"Schlitz—Schlitz in Brown Bottles."
