Parkorsburg, W. Va., July 19 In the
Ellis Glenn trial today? Phillip "Whlto,
ot Marietta, said ho was a' bosom com
panion ot Bert Glenn when he lived
there. They had gone out together
and enjoyed the companionship ot
women on many occasions, as well as
othor worldly amusements, but Glenn
had a scar on his arm and said he got
it In a railroad wreck.'
He was allowed to examine Ellis
Glenn's arm but could And no scar on
his aim. Ho said the prisoner was not
tho Bert Glenn he knew and made an
emphatic statement to that effect. El
lis Glenn was a detective and was a
man in all respects.
Several other witnesses stated that
Ellis Glenn limped and Bert Glenn did
not. C. D. Foster said he knew Bert
Glenn well. "The prisoner Is not Bert
Glenn," said Foster, "for she Is not
built like him In any respect. Her hair
and eyes are different."
The defense announced that they
would spring a sensation in a few days.
It I3 belioved that it wil be the pro
duction of the original Bert Glenn.
It Is generally accepted that Ellis
Glenn wfll be cleared.
There were various rumors about the
court room this morning about several
tilings connected with the case. One
of those was that the defense would
put the prisoner upon the stand and al
low the State to make an examination
in regard to tho alleged scars on the
head and In her.hand, to show that no
such scars exist, but It Is doubtful if
this will be done.
The defense has stated all along that
Ellis has a brother Bort. and that the
. e?nlPi?nJr9 uetwee,n jhe ,two is so
marked as to form and features that
they could not bo distinguished apart,
yet witnesses for the defense testify
that tho Bert Glenn they knew at Wil
liamstown did not resemble tho prison
er In scarcely any particular, In height,
build or features. Tho question of in
dentlty is getting pretty well mixed.
Squire W. B. McKinney. of Wil
liamstown, said that he was a farmer.
Knew Bert Glenn at Wllllamstown.hav
ing met him on the street occasionally.
Glenn called on liim to examine a deed
of trust. Witness said be could not
see any resemblance between Bert
Glenn and tho prisoner.
On cross-examination he said he had
nover seen Bert Glennjn female appar
el. Had not seen Bert Glenn since he
left Wllliamstown until he saw her in
Caldwell's office last Monday and after
wards In tho court room on the same
day. The deed of trust that he exam
ined for Bert Glenn was not filled up.
Re-direct. When he saw Glenn at
Caldwell's office ho did not think It was
Bert Glenn.
Mrs. A. R. Koopman, of Williams-
town, know Bert Glenn when ho deliv
ered groceries to her house and did
some work about tho place. The pris
oner to tho best of her knowledge is noi
Bert Glenn. Tho prisoner Is taller than
Bert and her face Is sharper. Bert had
dark hair. 1
Cross-examination. Witness refused
to tel wnether she was the same party
that was indicted and tried several
years ago for beating her child and
was defended by C. T. Caldwell. Nev
er saw Bert Glenn dressed as a woman'
and. had never seen tho prisoner in
men's clothing. Could not tell the col
or of Glenn's o"yes. Glenn was about 19
years of ago.
Re-direct. Witness said she was ac
quitted of tho charge against her at
criminal court, tho judge dlrectlnghat
a verdict of not guilty be returned.
Admitted that her daughter had beon
sent to tho reform school and was af
terwards released.
A. R. Koopman, of Wllliamstown,

cedes for Rlchtor. Glonn papered Ilia
hall and witness tried Glenn's coat on
and found It a little larso across tho
shoulders. Glonn was shorter than tho
prlsonerand he did not think the pris
oner was tho samo porson as Ellis
On cross-examination ho said that ho
couldn't say positively that the prison
er was not Bert Glonn.
Phillip Whlte,of Marietta, a sal6sman
for a wholesalo grocery, know Bert
Glenn at Marietta, and had conversa
tions with him. Hfl said the prisoner
at the bar is not Bert Glenn. Glenn
had a scar on his right arm between the
wrist and elbow.
Ellis Glenn
Had oxamlncd both arms of the pris
oner a few minutes ago in the clerk's
prlvato ofllco.and did not find a scar on
elther'arm. Bert Glenn had neve:
shaved In his presence, but saw him
prepare to shave. His face was soft
like a woman's. On cross examination
ho said that the scar on Glenn's arm
was piam. uionn toiu mm ho was a
detective and had been shot In tho
'arm. The prlsonor could not look like
Bert Glenn even If she was in men's
Ro-direct. He and Glenn hod board
ed at Mrs. Green's boarding house.
They talked with each other about tho
girls and "ratted around" together on
several occlsians, as the witness was an
unmarried man at that time. Bert
said he had detective papers. Did not
hear him say that ho had to disguise
himself. Did not,know of Glenn hav
ing a fight at Wllliamstown and having
a tooth knocked out. Bert Glenn was not
as tall as tho prisoner and did not limp.
Gonn was about 27 or 28 years of age.
R. D. Hutchinson, of Webster coun
ty, a ccrchant, .deputy copnty clerk
and formerly a newspaper man,a writer
of acts, not Action, was put on the
stand. Witness said he had a letter
from Wm. Richardson, or rather two
of them. Ho was asked In regard to
the letter of Jan. 15, 1900 The letters
were badly torn and the state objected
to their being Introduced In evidence.
Mr. Hutchinson was withdrawn from
tho stand In order that he might ar
range tho letters so as to connect them

ono occasion. Had been-, in Hunting
ton, left there and came back and said
Wllliamstown would be a good place for
a laundry. Ho came to Parkersburg
and stayed all night, slept together and
left the next morning for Williams
town, where he romained a day with
Glenn. Glenn stated to him on one
occasion that ho had been in a wreck
and had received a cut on tho arm
which left a scar. Glenn stopped at
tho Fifth Avenue hotel at Huntington
which was kept by Bonham's mother.
Glenn had his clothing laundered at his
laundry. There was nothing to make
him suspect that Glenn; was anything
but a man. The prisoner at the bar, he
said, ho could not say positively was
not Bert Glenn, but their appearance
was somewhat different. Never saw
the prisoner In mon'ts clothing.
C. D. Uhl, tho next witness, said that
he resided near Wllliamstown. Knew
Bert Glenn at Wllliamstown. Come to
his house in 1897tid Introduced him.

not sell It. Saw him on the street at

as tho prisoner, had a round face and
heavier shoulders. Didn't know how
Bert Glenn would look If ho was dress
ed in womon's clothing. His eyesight
was not very good . So far as ho knew,
of his own knowledge the man who
said ho was Bert Glenn might havo
been some ono else. There is somo
resemblance between the prisoner and
Bert Glenn.

Baltimore, Md., July 19. General
Felix Angus, publisher ot the Baltimore
American, has telegraphed the follow
ing to President McKlnley:
"William McKlnley, President, Canton,
"Maclay's history of the navy is the
standard in use at the Naval Academy.
In the third volume, Just Issued, the
historian charges Schley with being
a coward, a liar, a catlff and
lncompe -
tent and insubordinate.
"In an interview in the American this
morning, Maclay, the historian who is a
Navy Department clerk, classed as a la
borer anil attached to the Brooklyn na
vy yard,' says that the proofs of this
third volumo which should have toll
the most glorious story In all our naval
annals, were submitted to Secretary
Long and Admiral Sampson and ap
proved by them in advance of publica
tion, also that Long put him in his
present position after he had read and
approved this scurrilous attack on
Schley-, These proofs were also sub
mitted to Dewoy, who refused to read
them. If aught were needed to con
vince any fair minded man that a
clique In the Navy Department hai
conspired to traduce tho hero of San
tiago and that the conspiracy was car
ried into oxecution while that braveand
gallant oflleerwas sufferlngexpatrlatlon
on the fever Infester coast of South
America, this should furnish It. Will
you, Mr. President", In view of all this,
sit quietly by and permit these conspir
ators to continue tnelr diabolical work?
Every Justice loving American appeals
to you to Intervene In the namo and for'
tho sake of fair play. Next to being
right all the time, which no man ever
was, the best thing Is to find out a3
soon as possible that you aro wrong and
right yourself Immediately."

Suspicious Aricles Found.
Wednesday morning when the work
men at the court house began to fire up
for tho day's work, two suspicious ar
ticles were found In the coal. They
were about an inch and a half In di
ameter and about four Inches long and
had a projection on one end resembling
a precusslon. Another was found In
a box of lemons at Iho fruit stand op
poslto. There was considerable ex
citement at the time and one was hand
ed to Marshal Dye, who pronounced It a
part of a dark lantern. However, no

out that tho cylinders really aro shells,
what the object could be In ylaclng
