Parkcrsburg, W. Va., July 22. The
members of the jury were in . good
shape this morning after their Sunday
Test. 'They attended services Sunday
morning at tho Presbyterian church
And in the evening at the M. E. church
south .
Col. .Caldwell, of the defense, was
slightly under the weather today and
his client Is suffering with a severe
sore throat. , .
Court was convened at 9:15 and the
third week of tho trial was soon under
way.
Dr. W. A. Howard, of Vincent, O.,
formerly of this city, was tho first wit
ness called for the defense. Witness
said ho was practicing here In the
spring of 1897, and in May of that year
treated a man by tho name of Olenn, in
fact two persons by that name a man
and a woman. Treated the man for an
ailment peculiar to the male sex. The
prisoner at the bar is a woman, tho
witness having satisfied himself on that
point. Examined her for scars and
found ono limb had been fractured,
which left a scar, and also found a scar
on her hand. The fracture of the limb
probably occurred several years'ago.
The prisoner had never borne any chil
dren. Tho scar in tho palm of the pris
oners hand had the appearance of a
"burn Instead of being cut. Hair will
not grow on a scar on the head,as the
"hair follicles arc killed.
On cross examination the wltness
said he did not know but that a scar on
tho head could be removed. Witness
said he was paid $10 to come here and
testify in the case, and ho has been
promised $15 in addition. This does
not include per diem and mileage.. The
prisoner fold him that the scar on her
hand was caused by a burn. Could not
swear positively that tho scar was
caused by a burn, but that was his
opinion. Witness said he could not say
why Dr. Frame, J. F. Laird, Miss Ag
nes Riley and other witnesses who had
examined the prisoner's hand for a scar
could not find one. There may be a
scar on the back of her head, but ho
did not see it. There is a scar on Mis3
Glenn's forehead, near the edge of the
"hair. Couldn,'t say whether tho pris
oner had false tooth. Witness, before
"ho left here, had money belonging to
tho Knights of tho Golden Eagle, but
he paid It back before ho left here and
has a receipt for It. Paid It to a mem
her of thexirKanlzation. Ho was not
threatened with arrest tho day he paid
It, and denied that he left here to avoid
arrest on the charge of committing a
criminal act In connection with his pro
Tession.
Re-dlrect. Witness said he left here
-wlthls mother and located at Vincent
A scar could not obliterate Itself.
Could not afford to come here and
make an examination and testify for
less than $25.
Re-cross. Witness denied that Dr
Frame told him that his reputation was
such that ho had betetr not go on the
-witness stand.
MONDAY AFTERNOON.
E. L. Fairbanks was tho first witness
called attor the dinner recess. Wit
ness resided in Wllliamstown and this
city. Bert Glenn came from Illinois
with witness in December, 1896, and
was a picture agent. He belonged to a
detective egancy in the west. Bett
Olenn was a man, Witness told how bo
know Glenn was a man. They visited
public houses hero and in WilUams
town, Witnes3 PMdh,9 I3-' married
man and he was averse to telling these
things that would disgrace hra before
his family. Saw Bert Glenn last In fall
of 1897, when ho badp hlrn good-bye
and said ho waB'golngtolllfnbls. Bert
Glonn had a scar on his leg from a bul
let wound; wound was in the' palf of
the log. Witness had examined the
left limb iof tho prisoner and the scar
on Bert Glenn was different from that
on the prisoner's leg. Glenn had r.
trotting horso which he said ho sold
here.
'On cross-examination the witness
said he was shown the prisoners limb in
n room adjoining tho court room. Had
teen married for fourteen years. Tho
witness was pretty badly mixed In somo
of his answers. He said ho Is employ
ed at Bentley & Gerwlg's to look after
tho repairs on their houses in various
parts of the city. Witness said ho was
originally from Jerseyvllle, 111., about
42 miles from Aton. This Is Madison
county. Madison and Montgomery
counties adjoin. He said he had not
studied geography and could not tell
the county seat of any of the adjoining
counties to those of his own. Never
saw the prisoner at tho bar until he
had seen her today. Did not know at
whose boardlnc house he boarded at
Wllliamstown, but boarded at the St,
Cloud at Marietta.
Did not know whoso name he regis
tered under at the St. Cloud, -as he
had an assumed name which he occas
ionally used. Believed he first met
Glenn at Jerseyville, 111., In 1895 and af
terwards In St. Louis. Witness said
he saw an Illinois man In the court
room and was asked to point him out.
Ho designated a young lawyer named
Magee, of this city, as tho one he refer
red to, and said ho was satisfied Magce
was from Illinois, and afterwards said
he looked like a man 'from Illinois,
and then denied that he had said that'
he had seen some one from Illinois la
tho court room, but the record was
nnrnnir on him. Then ho auallfled his
,statemeni.4y- saying AbaV hfe''mf'ggl
have been mistaken.

By Associated Press.
Pittsburg, Ju'y 2. The expected did
not happen today. Neither of the look
ed for programs for Wellsvlllo nor Mc
Keesport were carried out..
At Wellsville tho importation of men
failed to materialize and at McKeesport
the attempt to resume at tho Dwees
Wood Tube plant was not made. At
both points which are considered strike
centers tho situation is in statusquo,
neither having made any decided move.
From another important point, Dun-
cansville, contacting reports were re
ceived. The company's chances arc
probably better for the winning in the
end.
This afternoon tho Amalgamated As
sociation Issued Its first strike bulletin
fromjts general office. The bulletin
gives the outline of conditions prevail
ing and reproduces the abstract of
Shaffer's recent addresses at Wellsvlllo
and McKeesport.
In tho most prominent part of tha
bulletin is printed the warning words,
"Do not drink, especially If the trust
tries to break tho strlko by Importing
non-union men. Don't believe anyone
who says the mills will bo closed forev
er or taken out of the community 1C
you don't go to work. Enjoy your
summer shutdown; it means more woric
noxt winter. That is time for the mill
to work anyhow."
There has been no change In arbitra
tion or meditation movements so far 03
officials of the Association are aware. 1
Hope Is still general among these of
ficials, however, that a way will bo
found to bring about a settlement.
Friends of President Shaffer express,
the belief that If proper steps were tak
en, manufacturers would find tho Asso
ciation in a concllatory mood, ready to
meet any reasonable proposition con
sistent with honor.

New York, July 22. The World says
"J. Pierpont Morgan has formed a
?200,000,000 pool to support the steel
stocks during tho long fight which he
expects to have with tho Amalgamated
Association. The operations In this pool
explain the comparative steadiness of
United States steel shares in tho stock
market during the great declines which
havo taken placo in the last fortnight.
Tha pool has taken every share of the
stock offered below the" market pvlce.
This means that tho pool has bought
this week In tho open market nearly
200,000 shares of the stock.
"W.lth ?40,000,000 cash 20 per cent
of the pool's resources it expects to
bo able to sustain the market, no mat

pression may como during Jae summer.
