ORDEAL. The [Murderer oi' Katie Rupp Faces a Jury Today. INSANITY THE DEFENCE. Max Salinger’s Vain Fight for Delay — Winfield’s Dramatic Story of the Crime. Bernard Altenberger was taken from the County Jail to the Court of Oyer and Ter miner this morning to stand trial for the murder of Katie Rupp at Snake Hill a few weeks ago. He was in a pleasant mood, end before leaving the Jail told a keeper that he expected to get seven or eight years imprisonment, and that before his term ex pared aae would be paraoneu. The Court room was crowded with people anxious to see the murderer and hear the tale of his crime told in court. Many of them commented on the beardless and boy ish expression of the heartless assassin when Constable George Stanton took him within the bar aiad gave him a seat beside his law yers,' Norman L. Rowe and Max Salinger. As soon as Judges Lippincott and Kenney took their seats on the loench, Counsellor Rowe asked the Court to postpone the case. He said that before Altcnberger could safely go to trial it would be necessary to receive answers from Henuauy to letters that counsel had sent there. He informed the Court that the defease woilld be insanity and that the lawyers were waiting for pi-oof from Germany to show that insanity was hereditary in Alteubergei'’s family, and that the defendant himself had been in an asylum. GETTING A JURY. The Court refused to grant any delay and ordered that the jury be called. Counsellor Salinger objected to this action on the ground that Sheriff Toffey and Judge Ken ney could not strike a special panel of forty eight jurors from the panel of sixty, as pro vided in the act of 1888, because an act of 1889 repealed it. Salinger also challenged the array because only fifty-nine jurors were on the panel, one having died, and and three were over age. Those over age were Marinus Wells, age sixty-nine; Michael Lemmon, age seventy, and Chaa-les Turner, age seventy. "Judge Lippincott taeated Salinger's ob ject ions as emanations of a badly constituted mind and refused to grant any delay. The selection of the jury followed. There wtre sixteen challenges for the defence, and one for the State. These were the twelve chosen:—John J. Ginsto, Foreman; Jack Master, Henrv C. Petty, Herbeit Wilson, John S. Sothern. William H. Drescher, John A. Stover, George Taylor, Samuel Pearson, George Logan, John J. Cronin and Charles Been hammer. SALINGER’S QUEER MOVE. Before the case was opened by the Prose cutor, Counsellor Rowe read an affidavit made by Max Salinger as follows “Max Salinger, of full age, maketh oath and says that he, with Norman L. Rowe. Esq., are the attorneys of defendant, on above indictment, and assigned by this court to aid and defend this defendant on the trial thereof. That under the plea of not guilty on such trial the defence of insanity will be interposed, and upon which defence the deponent and his said col leagues confidently expect an acquit tal of said 'defendant. Deponent says that they cannot safely proceed to ta-ial upon said indictment on this ninth day of Jiiiv A. D. 1S94. for the want of material witnesses in behalf of said defendant to wit.: Dr. Knapp, resident at this time at Ludwigs linrg. in the Empire of Germany, and Caroline Kraflft, resident at this time at liaugstedt. in Germany aforesaid, and whose absence at this time from this country and from this conrt is solely due owing to the shortness of time intervening between the time they heard from the deponent of the imprisonment of said defendant upon this indictment to wit. on or about the twenty lifth day of June A. D. 1894. and which thus rendered it impossible for either of said witnesses to be here at this time from such a distance. Deponent therefore prays for a continuance of said trial until the next succeeding term of this court, when and where said absent witnesses will be by him produced and by whom this deponent will prove ami establish a defence of insanity aforesaid upon such trial. Deponent grounds bis belief that said absent witnesses will then apiienr and testify as aforesaid, for these reasons namely, as to Dr. Knapp, this deponent has been in written communication with him concerning this case and has received a reply stating that he is willing to anpear in his defendant’s behalf and prove insanity in the defendant, and as to the Caroline Kraft, she is the mother of said de fendant. and through relatives of defendant, deponent is ero iihly informed that she is most anxious to testify as to certain facts which established insanity in said defendant, but that owing to ti c shortness of the time and the great distance between her present resi lience and this place she cannot be here today. NOT CUMULATIVE. “Deponent says that said testimony of such absent witnesses is not cumulative to other testimony to be offered for the defend ant. and deponent verily believes that on said trial there will lee a direct e'giflict of evidence between the State and this 'defend ant oh” the defence or insanity aforesaid, ani that bv said absent witnesses the defendant will be placed in great hazard and peril of his irf*. Boponent says that by said absent witnesses Its can and will ■nrmrJ&thut- on \l«v 12. said defendant, was Buffering from a disease of the body which afflicted his brain and reason, and that by such sickness the defendant had be<m con tinuously afflicted from January, 1SMU; that by reason of such bodily sickness, May 15, 1834, he was suffering and laboring under such a defective reason as not to know tho nature and qualities of any act he was then doing or if ha did know that what be did was wrong. That at Ludwigsburg, in Germany, aforesaid, in January, 1890, such bodily disease became so manifest in defen dant that it became necessary to take and place him in a certain asylum at said place and maintained for the cure of the insane by Dr. Knapp, in which asylum said defendant ■was thereafter incarcerated for many months and under the medical care and treatment of said Dr. Knapp for tho cure of the then malady of said defendant, to-wit. insanity, and which has continued and yet exists in defendant. That although said defendant could not be wholly cured of said malady he was deemed harm less except on receiving a sudden provocation or anything to happen to him that would produce excitement In him when his mind was likely to give wav under such a strain and pressure, and while thus afflict ed lie becomes deranged insane and his said bodily disease to again cause him to labor under such a defect of reason as net to ' know the nature and quality of any act he was doing or if he did know that what he did was wrong, and that on said May 13 his blind and reason became thus afflicted, and he is irresponsible in the law for the death of Katie Rupp, and on the indictment afore said. deponent says that this application is • made ill good faith and not for the purpose of obtaining any delay in said trial.” The Court refused to accept the affidavit. MR. WINFIELD’S OPENING. In his address to the jury the Prosecutor said:— ‘■At fifteen minutes before seven o’clock in the morning of May 15 two men at Snake Hill, while going to their work, heard groans from a person on the Hill. The men clam bered over the rocks in the direction of the sounds, and in a lonely spot on a rocky ledge they discovered tho body of Katie Rupp. \She was semi conscious. She was removed to tho asylum where she revived some. The same Providence which watches '.over and protects tho little sparrow guarded t this young woman all night and long enough i to enable her to tell who shot her and where 11 .. she came from. If it had not been for that act of Providence, it is probable that neither you nor 1 would bo here today to perform a solemn duty. Tho both lived at Rome, both were Her mans and they had known each other since the beginning of last February, and strange to say, they became acquainted at a funeral. Altenberger followed up the acquaintance Katie had accumulated some proper Wand he borrowed money from her ami finally in April led her to believe he intended to marry her. He pressed his Suit so far as to persuade her to come to New York to be married, but with great shrewdness he told her to go to Utica aud wait for him. This was done to avoid observation. It was Slay VJ when Katie left Rome and pur chased a ticket for Utica. Two or three horn's later Altenlierger bought a ticket for New York, but when he reached Utica he left his truuk there, for he knew he would come back. Poor Katie Rupp took her trunk with her, for slio be lieved stie was ou her wedding tour. On the train Altenberger told Katie Rupp that her money belonged to both, aud ho got $‘J.i from her.” describing the crime. The Prosecutor then rehearsed the story so familiar to ail readers of The News as to liovv Katie was decoyed to Knake Hill and shot, and her subsequent death at Christ Hospital. The Prosecutor described the flight of Altenberger to this city and from hero to Elizabeth, which place he reached at nine o’clock in the evening. in the after noon he cal led on a woman aud that night took her to a dance. Tho next mornine he returned to New York. Katie lived long ouough to know that Altenberger had been caught. IVAUr. n jctjmmia. Charles E. Ilollins was the first witness called. He testified that ho was proprietor of Slembaeh’s Hall, Koine, and that Katie Kuup was a servant there. He said she left there on May 12 to meet Altenberger, and that when he viewed her body at Speer’s morgue he identified it. There was no cross examination by the defense. John K. Holmes, proprietor of a restaur ant on Montgomery street, told the Jury that Altenberger and Katie Rupp ate breakfast in his place on the Sunday in question. He had identified the body of Katie Rupp in the Morgue. Mrs. Margaret Gannon repeated the story she has told so often that Altenberger and Katie called at her boarding house and en gaged a room. She asked Katie if they were married and the girl said no, but that they would be before night. When they left the house they said tbey would return be fore night. Mary Thompson, the colored wife of “Old Black Tom” at Snake Hill, testified that the couple called at her house on the fatal Sun day and asked her for a drink of water. They walked away after drinking the water. Mrs. Thompson identified Katie Rupp at the Morgue, and Altenberger after her arrest. “HER FELLOW SHOT HER.” Josenhine Jordan, a granddaughter of Mrs. irhompson, corroborated her. Leopold Rittberger and James Doyle told the jury how they had heard groans and discovered the iujured woman. They caused the woman to be taken to the Alms House. Katie told them her “fellow had shot her.” Warden Ryan of the Alms House testified to the bringing of the woman to the Alms House. She suffered much from paiu. Dr. King, Superintendent of the Asvlum, testified that when informed of the finding of Katie he sent three men to her aid and they conveyed her to the Alins House.

Her condition was so serious that the County Physician would not permit her removal". The next day he found her much improved. He made the post mortem examination after the death of Katie took place. Dr. Converse described how death had been caused. NOT NECESSARILY FATAL. Cross-examined after recess Dr. Converse testified that the wounds on Katie Rupp were not necessarily fatal, but that recovery from them would be regarded by the medical profession as a curiosity. Katie Chanco of Rome testified that she knew Katie Rupp thirteen years. She iden tified the case of Katie Rupp's watch, and said that she never knew that Katie had ex changed it for Altenberger’s watch. Phillip May of Elizabeth, testified that Altenberger visited his house on -Pfingst Sun day. He wanted a room for a day or two. Slay did not give him a room. He learned of the murder Tuesday following.

TO CONTEST THE WARDS BILL Local Democrats Will Follow New ark’s Example. It was reported upon good authority in the lower section of the city, today, that prominent Democratic leaders proposed fol lowing the example of Newark democrats and contesting any action which the Ward Line Commissioners, appointed last week by Mayor Warner, may take. On Saturday last the Democratic leaders of Newark decided to contest the constitutionality of the law under which the commission is created. The action is not only based upon the alleged unconstitution ally of the act. but also because it is pri vate, special and local, and also because it embraces more than one object not ex pressed in its title. Local Democratic leaders may contest it for the same reasons. If the act is declared a constitutional one and the Commissioners redistrict the city, seven of the nine proposed wards will contain Republican majorities. Tho preliminary proceedings in the suit brought by the Newark democrats was up for argument before (Supreme Court Justice Ilepue in that city today.

It Enables Him to Give Sunday Concerts, in Hoboken— Gantzberg Open Too. This little story illustrates oue of the lux uries of being a Hoboken city official. Gus tav Hauser is a prosperous concert hall aucl beer garden proprietor at Fourteenth, street in that city. lie is also a Fire Commis sioner. Gustav has run shows on Sunday just like every oue else, winter and summer. Like the rest he received a notice from Chief Donovan to close up his concert hall on Sunday nights henceforth. But the Commissioner only smiled. Such an order could not disturb him. He is a Fagau man. He has an advertisement in Mayor Fagan’s organ, a one-inch-a-day. Last night Mr. Hauser had quite a good show up there for Sunday night; that is, there was lots of Hoboken beer and concert ball screeching. A man thumped away os though his heart would break at the piano. There was a big crowd. They applauded the Fire Commissioner's show. It was the only show running in town so they encouraged it. Mr. Hauser’s front shades were drawn but the garden fates were swung wide open and every oue nBW what war (.miner nn inRirlfl. Mr. Hauser was there and smiled benignly upon a Hoboken “cop” standing in the door way. He won’t close up, he says. GANTZBEHG’S, ALSO. Robert Gantzberg of Washington street, above First street, was the only concert hall man besides Hauser who mocked the edict to close up of Mayor Fagan’s police. Slgfried Cronheim, ex-proprietor of wbat is now the Germania Theatre on Hudson street, Hoboken, went from Brooklyn to Hoboken last night to look around. He landed in Gantzberg’s, where a German variety bill was being run off. Cronheim asked Gantz berg if he had heard of the recent reforma tion order. “I haf,” answered Gantzberg. “What do you run for?” queried Cron heirn. “None of your tarn business,” the proprie tor ejaculated. Cronheim left the place and endeavored to have Gantzberg arrested, but was uusuc ful. WANTS FAIR PLAT. Thomas McAleer, an ex-policeman of the Hoboken department, now manager of the “Ivy Concert Hall,” on Hudson street, Ho boken, tried to make a complaint against Mr. Hauser for running a show. He went to the garden and found things in full op eration. Then he went to Police Head quarters. Sergeant Rathjen referred him to the Second Precinct station house, in whose jur isdiction Hauser’s garden lies. The Sergeant did not care to take a complaint against the Fire Commissioner. “I mean to stop this,” said McAleer. “I was ordered to close my place and did. This man Hauser has no more right to run his show Sunday than I have and be shall not I mean to present the matter to the Grand Jury. He can’t run his show on account of his being a city official. That doesn’t go with me. I shall make a complaint to Chief Donovan first.” Today he made the complaint to the Chief and the latter promised to investigate it. “I did not know Mr. Hauser’s show was running,” said the Chief. TAXES ON JANX STOCK Can Personal Indebtedness Be Ap plied as an Offset. Wellington, Cftiio, July 9, 1894.—The stockholders of the First National Bank of Wellington havk commenced an action in court which will be of great interest to the banking fraternity. They seek to enjoin the County Treasurer from collecting taxes on banking shares, because the County Auditor and State Board of equalization have refused to allow any reduction tor indebtedness of the shareholders from the value dX the shares. The shareholders aver that the difference between the sum actually due as taxes on the shares, and the amount assessed is $447.70. They ask that the treasurer be enjoined from collecting this amount on the ground that this indebtedness exceeds their liabilities. The defendant denies that bank stock is a credit which can be offset against individ ual indebtedness, and asserts that if such offsets can be made in the taxation of na tional bank stock it will open a way by which a banking business may be conducted _At, » noni'fal nnj Kn beginning of a policy which will take from the tax duplicate the whole valuation of national bank stock. The plaintiffs are S. S. Warner, K. A. Horr, C. \V. Horr, and others. CAUGHT ON TWO MEAT HOOKS. Horrible Injury ol'au Old Hsu Who Jumped to Escape Fire. New York, July 9, 1894.—In a frantic struggle to escape roasting to death in an old double tenement house in the block at the juncture of Canal and Division streets at one o’clock this morning, a Jewish tailor named Joseph Epstein, leaped from the sec ond story window on to the projecting hooks, on which carcasses are usually hanged outside the butcher’s shon below.
