THE HERALD; OSKALOOSA. MAHASKA TO-DAY’S SPECIALS. The Conklin Case. IOWA: Continuation of the Experts — The State Rests—Defense Commences. Washington, March 25,1896. The following Is the testimony taken Monday afternoon : Dr. Morgan's cross examination Whs continued. His tvldeuce was that of a specialist and veritLd the statements of the other physicians F. B. Davis recalled; said that he had picked up the stockings Mrs Conklin had worn at the time of the burning; took them from the basket where Mr McCurdy had thrown them; they had no holes in and werecleaD; no dirt on them that he could see; he saw an oil can on the west side of the north door half way to the corner of (he house Cross ex amination developed nothing. MRS. FANNIE FALSER said that she bad spent the afternoon be fore Mrs. Conklin’s death at the Linder man home, and that Mrs. Conklin was there about an hour. She compla’ned of being tired but witness thought she acted very naturally. MRS. J M HAC AN, the deceased sister was then called to the stand. She said in substance that when she reached the Conklin house on July 10, last, those there would not let her see the dead body, which was among the weeds. This witness told mere of the private life of the Conklin family than any other wit ness. She said that Mrs. Conklin was a nervous woman and had not always been healthy. She was a very industrious woman and worked very hard ; was much worried because she could not always get through her duties. Cobk'.in never went into details in telling her of the case. He said, however, that the night before her death she was unwell, but as rational as she always was. Mrs Conklin had made complaint to her of Phil’s treatment. Mrs., Hagan said that Mrs Conklin complained almost every time she saw her Mrs Conk lin took everything to heart; was more or less seneative. When Mr. Conklin found that Mrs Bagan was to appear in court he did not ask her wbat she was going to say. but said to her, 1 Go up and tell the truth, the whole truth.” Mr Conklin took care of the children at night. Never to her personal knowledge had Mr. Conklin mistreated his wife. She had not seen Mrs. Conklin for a week or ten days be fore her death. Conklin had related to her the same as to other witnesses, how he had found his wife the night before her death. Minnie Conklin came to stay with witness shortly after Mrs. Conklin's death. Mrs. Conklin Lad frequently cried and complained to witness of her trouble. Wit ness was not permitted to tell what she said. In the cross examination witness described the figure and disposition of Mrs. Conklin Told of seeing Conklin first in the sitting room the morning of the death, he was cryiDg and wringing his hands; she had no talk with him WM S BRAY, a new witness, is a ton of the Congrega tional minister at Oskaloosa Knew where the Conklins lived. About the fore part of June was gHcg to brick yard, past the house. Mr Conklin was out in the yard fixing a wagon ; a lady went from near the house out to where he was Conklin stopped and said to her, ‘‘G d you, if you can’t do any better than that you bad bet ter go into the house.” Conklin had some thing in his hand that looked like a single tree ; he swung it in a menacing manner as though to strike her; she turned and went toward the house. Witness did not know Conklin at that time, but he pointed him out as the man he saw at that time. Cross-examined by Seevers,witness said: It was about sixty feet from the road to where Conklin was fixing the wagon Did not see the lady come out of the house or re-enter it. Had first spoken of the occur rence to P. Gad Seevers and then to Ernest Shaw. The latter asked him why he did not go on the stand and tell it as there was money in it for him. He had never mentioned it at home. In reply to a ques tion, witness stated that he did not say to Hawkins and Oxander at Hawkins’ barn that he did not care a d what he swore to, but wanted what money there was in it. CHA9 T. HALE testified that once while passing the Conk residence last summer be heard Mr. Conk lin, who was standing about fifty feet from his wife talking in a very loud voice end supposed he was angry, but later learned that Mrs. Conklin was deaf and wasratis fied. reached the Conklin residence some time after the coroner's jury rendered its ver dict The imprint in the grass was not perfectly straight; could not get a clear idea of the original imprint. Very little grass was burnt on side of print. Saw no evidence of a struggle. Was also present when the body was raised the first time. Saw no blisters on the body. The doctors placed the surgical instruments under the akin, it held together,showing a reasonable state of preservation. The corpse was very badly .rred about the face, breast and neck -the front part of the hair was scorcher Think the body was burnt down as far as the hips. In his paper he published some statements in regard to the Conklin case. Conklin came to the Solicitor office, but Taylor was out. He waited until Taylor came in, and then said Mrs. Taylor had given him a paper and the article was not so bad as he had anticipat ed. As he was leaving he said, “You may publish my thanks to my friends for 'their assistance to me.” FLOYD DAVIS The reading of the evidence of the chemist, Fiojd by Judge Blan chard consumed the balance of the day. It was hia former testimony and is familiar to readers of The llerald, giving hla personal observation at the time of exhumation, condition of dif ferent parts, scientific facts relating thereto and hla reasons for believing that Mrs. Conklin had died of strangu lation. Court adj rnrned until Tuesday morn log. The court house Is not large enough to seat the crowds of people who come daily to hear this case, and standing room is In demand. Fully half the audience is composed of ladies, and great Interest is being manifested as the trial progresses. The sentiment Is divided, many thinking the evidence being only circumstantial and not strong enough to warrant the proceed ings, while others think It Impossible that the “death” was the result of sui cide, etc. However, a different atmos phere prevails here, In the absence of excitement and prejudice, which was manifested at the former trial at Os kaloosa. Tuesday’s Testimony. Court opened at 8:30 The first witness called was W. H. Keating, who has lived for six years In the east part of town; have known Mr. Conkling ever since I came; have had dealings with him; purchased milk of him,Mrs ConkUn and children fetched it .. V;. v .v • ; -r IsKjg - ; - !“'■ ■ GKO. B. TiTLOR to us, a distance of four blocks; com menced about March 1, 1b95, aud con tinued until June the same year; have seen Mrs. Conklin deliver milk on Sun days and other days; one large and one email pail in her hands generally; this during all kinds of weather; had a talk at tone time with Mr. Conklin about employing criminal lawyers; Conklin had a ' ed hla advice as to who were good ones; Conklin, after a number had bs-*n suggested, eald that attorneys were not always what they should be— not always Christians; cited him to the casaa of Kelly Johnson and Judge Seeyers, and spoke cf the confidence that the people had in them; Conklin said that it cost all that a man is worth to hire a lawyer if he gets into trouble; said that if a man got into trouble he thought the beet way was for him to walk up and confess; asked me as to who was tbe best criminal lawyer in town; told him I thought Mr. Ken worthy was; said that he had heard that Kenworthy needed watching, but did cot know; told Conklin that be thought that Kenworthy would do a man justice In answer to a question by Blanchard, Keating said that Ken worthy had taken part in the previous trial; Keatlrg saw Conklin going to Kenworthy's house on the evening of July 13, two or three days after the death cf his wife; said that In talking to Conklin about good lawyers, named Mr. Lacey ar d also all of the lawyers now In the case except Mr Carroll; eald that they were>?hd§exactly crimi nal lawyers, but any one of them would do lu such a ca*e, referring gen erally; said that Mtb. Conklin had brought milk to the house as late as 10 o’clock at night; hed met Conklin and Mr. Hedge walking up town; went with them; were talking about Floyd Davis in the investigation; Conklin Bald that he was an upstart; that he had no right to go further than he was employed Bret to do; said Conklin appeared quite angry, and displayed his arger by a twitching motion of the hands and said, “Should this thing come to court I will employ the beet chemist that can be found In the country;'’ eatd the chem; let’s report should m>t have been pub Hebe i, as it contained mere than he had been employed to And out; said he had 6een Conklin go to church often, but did not remember seeing hie wife with him; that he had seen Mrs. Conklin carryiug milk Sunday evening The cross examination did not bring anything contrary or new Rave that he had told this to Hedge and Ken worthy; denied that he had tried to make Conk lin think he was a good lawyer with a view of getting a job. The next wltuees was I. W. Cook, whose testimony was substantially that given at the first trial. On cross exam ination there was argu ment on « hat Mrs. Hagan should have ?ald beforfl the coroner’s jury, and the court so far modified his previous ruling as to jermtt Cook to tell t f this, and 34id that Mrs Hag in had said that Mrs. Conklin was of a very nervous and ex citable temiersmeur, and expressed herte’f to the effect that they had been Sheeps Pants^ Made in lowa, we know ire all wool.

Thethlrd witness called was Dr. Cone, and the examination just begun, when Dr. Wilkins came In and eaid that It was very iin >ort*nt that he should testify and go home, and he was put on and his testimony was substantially the same as before. Judge Blanchard, In questioning all the evidences testified a a to havlDg been found in Mrs. Conk lin’s body, asked if he found such sub ject, In his opinion would that subject nave been burned or strangled to death Dr. Wilkins said that he thought the person had been strangled. The Floyd Davis testimony went In as before. I. W. Cook, J. L. Wilson, Dr. Hunter and W. II Keating came In last night. Three sessions a day are the re gular order. The interest In the trial becomes dally greater to the people here and the coart house is crowded at every session. Monday afternoon fully two-thirds of the audience were ladles and many men went away not being able to get seats and s’anding room was in-demand. I understand this Is the first “murder” trial that has taken place In this county for years and is considerable of a curi osity to most of the people. Many can not get enough of the sight of Mr.Conk tin and look upon him as much of a curiosity. The Tuesday afternoon and evening testimony was as follows: On cross examination Dr. Wilkins ■aid that Mrs. Conklin was a nervous woman, and once while attending a sick child, had a nervous storm or collapse. He said the effect of a shock on the nerve centers was instantaneous; the organs first affected are the heart and lungs; in cases of burnlDg the thing dreaded by physicians Is the tendency of fiames to enter the luDgs; if blisters formed by fire during life are still sub jected to the flame they would be des troyed; In strangulation the brain as well as the heart and other organs is congested with blood. In reply to Blanchard, said application of bleach ing fluid would remove signs of vio lence from throat. DR CONE testified that he was county physician of Mahaska county; was present at the first exhumation; this was for the pur pose of getting portions of the body for Chemist Davis; bedy was stiff and well preserved; marks of fire on whole an terior from knees up; back bair had been cut, rest slightly burnt; tongue protruded; parts taken were portions of brain, lung, stomach, bladder, trachea, spleen. In his opinion death was caused by strangulation, but did not make ex amination neceisary to determine cause of death; no blisters on mouth or ton goe; would say body was buret after death. Cross examination—heart had not been taken by Davi*;had examined trachea through microscope used by Jerei and Beaudry, but because of im properadjustment dlsoov^ednothing; WhiCU g&ljglli ******* proved vuiCWxAL \ ' : no blister?, bat might have been seme about groin and peiviß; body was badly decomposed. He described the appear-! accent body much the 6&me a? the other physicians, and described the ef fect of strangulation and suffocation, and believed death was caused by strangulation. Was positive in his | statements. Mrs. F. it. Davis testified substantial ly as she did in the former trial. Said she got to Conklin’s about 7:15 o’clock. The body appeared to be burned as far down as the knees. She told about her conversation with Conklin and what he said about Bateman and others. Judge Blanchard then reed from the works of Hamilton, Taylor, Reed, Whltehouse and Decker,those portions concerning rigor mortis, strangulation, blisters, suffocation, etc., and when he finished at 8:37 p. m, the state rested. Washington’, March 25. Court opened at 9 o’clock this morn ing, when Drs. Andrews, Clark and Crowder, and Rev Bamford, witnesses for defense, were called up and sworn,. RRV. BAMFORD first took the stand and testified that he was pastor of the First M. E. church in OBkaloosB;sald Mr,Conklin was a mem ber of hie church and that his general moral character was g :od. No cross examination. Dr. Clark testified that he and Dr. Barringer arrived at the home of Mr. Conklin between half after five and six o’clock in the morning, but did not eee the body until it was brought into the house by the coroner two hours later. The limbs were flexed—the lower limbs about half way to the abdomen. Tfee body was generally burned The stock Ings remained unborced, also narrow t anda about the t b iomen ar d the upper part of the thorax,near the collar boDea There was a blister behind the right ear, the doctor was convinced that they had been made before death. Daath may have resulted from shock or from suffocation. If from shock,death might have ensued in a very short time, and with but very little struggle In case of suffocation the hotair and gases would cause a cloeing of the epiglottis, which would remain closed during the pre sence of the cause of Irritation. The heart, lungs,and probably the liver and bralD, would be congested. Similar congestiona would likely occur in stran gulation and umally to a greater de gree. The tongue protruded slightly, was slightly burned and swollen. The eye presented no unusually appearance. The doctor stated it to be bis opinion based o n his examination o f the body, that Mrs. Conklin came to her death by turning He said they examined the body for the cause of death; said very little differ ence would have bsea found in the In terna) organs whether death resulted from fire or strangulation; that what ever the cause of death may b 8 the in ternal organs are congested jdeath from «hock would be variable with the Indi vldual jsa'd if the body had begun burn ing while alive and continued burning after death any blisters that mlghthave been formed would have been destroyed and also the red line of demarkation, and that the red line would probably not have been visible at the time the body was exhumed, even If it had been there before. On cross examination by Blanch erd nothing. new was brought out. Judge Blanchard experienced consider able difficulty in getting direct answers to hie questions and a good deal of qulb bling was Indulged In, apparently at cross purposes. Some amusement was occasioned by Blanchard's examination of the doctor on the use of the micro ecnpe and the examination of opeque substances. The doctor eald an opaque substance was something that could not be seen through Judge Blanchard said: “Something like a grind stone;” and 8d ied, “some people claim to be able to see through that.” DR ANDREWS was called to the stand and his ♦ xaml natlon had barely commenced when court adjourned for the noon hour. Mr. Dougherty, the manager of the Long Distance Telephone line here, la a member of the firm of Dougherty Bros., clothing and men’s furnishing goods. He Is a most accommodating and pleasant gentleman. He has af forded me every facility and accemmo datlon In his power in aiding me to transmit my report. We owe him many thanks. The deepest Interest continues to be exhibited by the people here In the Conklin trial, and each day the court room is crowded to its fall capacity, and for the la6t few days the ladies have occupied most of the seats, the men standing for the most part in the passage ways along the walls. As the trial progresses and the evidence Is given and more la learned of the cir cumstances of the case, comment on the outside becomes more frequent. Many in commenting upon it in a measure condemn Mr Conklin, adding that they mean to do so if what the circumstances so far testified to should be correct; but the disposition seems generally to be to withhold judgment until the other side Is heard. The State closed their testimony at 8:37 last evening, when court adjourn ed to 0 o’clock this mornlDg when the taking of testimony for the defense begins.
