JURY IEIGHIIG
CContinned from Page One)
and the other that he was not guilty
because insane. He said he thought
acts should count ana tee iaci uai j
the prisoner saw things was uo sign )
he was insane because all drunks see
things. The tact that his wlte testified
as to various crazy acts argued
nothing because "If your wile or mine
should rake up the peculiar things we
had done, she could make some people
believe we were insane!" A man woo
ran a gambling house would naturally
see things at night. He had mind ,
enough to bring bverson to breakfast
the morning ot the shooting and to
drive alterwards three miles for whiskey
and he didn't believe any crazy
man could drive a car over those country
roaas and not come to disaster.
Tlie prosecutor spoke at length on
this line. He stated that l>r. Hariligau
said what wasn't true when he
stated that no one suffering Ircm aeieriam
tremena ever recovered. He
asked that i>r. ice's testimony be given
consideration. He claimed that Lav is
had purely whlsitey simpies?nothing
more, saying he ran his store and
everybody in it, including Everson
and when Everson crossed him, ne
took his life.
Attorney Henry Lively lor the de- i
fence spoke in au effective manner regarding
patients at the Insane asylum <
at Weston where he had lived for 22
years. He gave as certain evidence
the fact that crazy people there aid <
many sane things. He said-one of the :
best chauffeurs at Weston was as i
crazy as couid be in other ways. He
told of an insane man who painted <
wonderful pictures. He attempted to
prore that Davis v,-as insane because
when under whiskey he seemed nor- 1
ma!. He said this was because too1
whiskey caused his brain to relu:That
in sober times, it was tense as
string. That was -why Davis beat i.
head at intervals. This was precis i
ly what ail insane people did. On.,
one witness, according to Lively, haconsidered
Davis sane out of all the '
many neighbors and friends who lived
in his neighborhood.
Henry Lively caused quite a sensaHon

during this trial an Imitation ot the ;
long-drawn oat scream which Davis is
said to have uttered many times in '
the dead of the night, with his wife be- 1
side him. He claimed that no woman
conld make up this scream ifailess she
had actually heard- it and that it was
Just the same as many like it which be i
had heard at W>3ton. 1
Congressman Neely who followed, ]
sympathized with, the wife and four i
children of the mudered man and if
he were the SaTlor. he claimed that
he would gladly call forth Everson to
go back and liTe witn his family, in
spite of the fact that he was a gambler
and cock-fighter. He stated emphatically
that Davis had been proven
insane and that one might as well
send a baby to the penitentiary as Davis.
Dr. Hartigan, according to Neely.
told in an Intelligent manner why he
believed the defendant Insane ana
that running a car was no reason why
he should be called normal. "It

to the testimony of Dr. Ice, Mr.
Neely laid: "Dr. Ice is a alee old man
bat It was perfectly apparent that bis
facilities are gradually being Unpaired.
He couldn't remember a single book
on Insanity except one written 30
years ago. Besides that be gave as
the symptoms of Insanity the very
traits which had lwen proven about

Congressman Keely closed Ills address
with, a reference to the last time
all present "would be together. He!
said: "1 ask yon to show today to this
afflicted family who have already sor- 1
tered all that la necessary, and to this
Insane defendant, the mercy yon
would like under the same circumstances."
Attorney Shaw got Immediately to
his feet. He went over the testimony
of the various witnesses with the jury
and said it was absurd to call a man
crazy who ran a gambling house and
had evaded the law dozens of times in
bringing in whiskey and in other ways.
He said the wife of Davis should have
reported her husband to proper authorities
long ago and avoided this tragedy
?that it was but a natural result of
the life he led. Shaw called the deed
of Davis, "foul murder!" He stated
that fleely was not the savior of Everson
bat the savior of the defendant
and also of himself if he can induce
the jury to render a verdict of not
guilty.
Attorney Shaw spoke at length
touching all acts of the criminal
which in his mind proved that he was i
perfectly sane when the shooting was
done. Following his speech, the Jury
went to lunch and from there to the
jury room.
Qawuruai/ nikvi iiwwti*
Saturday afternoon, the trial ot
Marceae Davis reached a stage where
everybody concerned moved slowly
and carefully. Dr. Ice. on the stand
Just before lunch, was in place again
when matters moved on. Congressman
Xeely, quite determined to prove i
Dr. ice's opinion regarding the sanity
of Marcene Davis at the time of the I
shooting, erroneous, and without foundation,
asked the doctor to give names .
of books he had studied on insanity
and all particulars regarding cases o.
insanity he had treated. Mcely aisc
asked other searching questions. Di.
Ice was on the stand over an hour.
Dr. Graham who waa next called stat
ed that In his opinion the prisoner was
sane at the time of the shooting but
he did not claim to be an expert in i
brain diseases so was immediatelyexcused
from further opinion, at the
request of the defense.
Twn vprt* ordered from !
the court. Later Lloyd Rinehart was |
a witness but could tell of no incidents
to prove hl3 opinion of the insanity
of Davis and was excused. Jotaua
Mauley came next but other than the '
fact that Davis had brought two kegs
of cider from him quite recently and
that he bad observed nothing at that
time wrong with his mind, he could
ihink o? nothing to say.
Both sides were through with all
witnesses by three o'clock. Court ad- I
joumed after waiting nearly '.wo j
hours for cases to be presented to the
jury. Not yet ready .adjournment
was taken.

J GOSSIP
"WASHINGTON", Nor. 25.?Congressman
Edward Cooper was the
I1* host to bis successor. Congressmanelect
Wells Goodvkoont*. last week.
They are close personal as well as
oolitlcal friends. The oalr were on
the floor of the House of Repreaentatives
together and circulated in the
Republican cloakrooms, where Mr.
* Cooper Introduced Mr. Goodykooatz
? to his friends, especallly to the most
' Influential members on the Republl?
can side. So. It will be that when
Senator Goodykoonta comes to take
0 Mr. Cooper's place In the House he
? will not be a total strangtr.
3 The new member from West Vlru
glnia made a good Impression on
those he met and talked with, to
judge from the complimentary re1
martrs made of him to West Virglnc'
isms later. The latter look npon the
6 congressional career of the newly?
elect as a most promising one, and
6 one that has all the premonitory signs
J of being an extended one. The knowledge
that the Willistnson man has the
ability, experience and energy to
d make a distinguished place In the
i. House for himself is largely the basis
I- for this feeling among West Vlrgine
i&ns here that the career of Congress- ;
J man Goodykoontz in Wasblntgoa is
e likely to be no tiansitory one.
Mr. Goodykoonts' friends have ad- !
i- vised a candidacy on his part for
i membership on the most important ,j
e committee on the judiciary in the ;
e next congress. They have already
1 presented his qualifications to the .
' party leaders here. The fact that he
1 but recently retired as president of [
the bar association In his state Is ac
cepted as prima fade evidence of his -
legal ability and. experience, as me ;
i fact that he is president of the West
Virginia Senate is taken as proof of
) his legislative ability and experience. '
) The- late Congressman Hunter H. '
3 Moss was the last Republican from ]
> West Virginia to hold a place op that ;
! committee. Congressr an M. M. . - >_ly
. is a member. Mr. Goodykoontz Is the 1
only one of the five Republican mem- ,
bers of the West Virginia delegation
who Is a lawyer. The party reasons,
why a place on the committee is Qiies-'
tion should go to West Virginia are
no less strong than the personal reasons.
The rush of West Virginians to get i
' ont of the army and navy has heaped i
' up the burdens of the members of the ;
congressional delegation and their <
' patient and hard worked secretaries 3
1 and clerks. It is seemingly a greater <
' rush to get out thaa it was to get in. t
1 for the rush to get out comes all at i
once, the rush to get in having been s
' more leisurely by comparison and J
' spread out over a longer duration. It 1
illustrates the let down in the service {
, and in all channels of life. j
The offices of the delegation are 1
1 swamped with letters, more from par- f
exits than from the boys themselves, 1
asking that dis-" rges be procured at .
once. This it is impossible to do, for "
the rules for the demobilization do
not confer any special authoritative
powers upon the members of congress.
About all that they can do is
to transmit the request, and they take
their regular course, which is tedi
ously slow. As a matte rof fact, it is
practically useless to waste the time
and the postage to send in these requests,
for the naval and army departments
have announced their own
rales governing mastering the men
out, and although It will he dose as
expeditiously as possible, they have
stated, it cannot be accomplished anyways
near as rapidly as the parents
of the boys seem to think.
In regar dto mustering men oat of
the navy, that department informed
Senator Sutherland that it can only
be donq. after the Individual enlisted
man makes written application to Ms
immediate commanding officer. That
is extremely important," says the
order. Inasmuch as It is impossible at
this time to authorize the discharge j
