EVIDENCE Nurse Testifies That Doctor Drew Blood Aiter Another Urged Him to Quit. CGTJUT ALLOWS THE EVIDENCE Overrules Objection of De fence to Centain Testi mony of the State. Kansas City, Mo., April 28. Judge Xiatshau today overuled the objection of the defence to testimony not touching directly upon the death of Col. Swope in the trial of Dr. Hyde for murder, and Miss Keller, a nurse, resumed her testi mony. The particular point of objection was giving the details of the death of Moss Hunton. The court held thax the state was attempting to prove a motive on the part of Dr. Hyde in the alleged kill ing of Hunton. Miss Keller immediately began to tell of the death of Hunton. She said, 'he was suffering from apoplexy when Dr. Hyde was called. He and Dr. Twyman bled the patient. "Dr. Hyde made an incision in Hun ton's arm," said the witness. "After a. pint of blood was drawn. Dr. Twyman suggested that it was enough bleeding Dr. Hyde dissented and more blood was drawn. A second and a. third time Dr Twyman objected but Dr. Hyd,e contin- L ue.d.the bleeding. Then Mrs. Hyde said: to her husband: 'Dearie, I think you had better stop the bleeding Dr. Hyde then closed the wound. I took charge of the blood and measured it and found that there were two quarts." Wanted T Be AdmiKistrater. "While the undertaker was still in the house caring for the body of Hun ton," said Miss Keller later, "Dr. Hyde met me in the hall and said: 'Pearl. Lyou have influence with Col. Swope and I want you to see that I ana made administrator in Hunton's stead." I told him- I could not do this, as I was only a nurse "and the minute I began to mix in the business affairs of my employers. I would be going outside of my province." Miss Keller had started to tell of the last day of Col. Swope's life when the noon recess was taken. Hyde Predicted Death. "Col. Swope will never return to Kansas City." This prophecy, testified Miss Pearl Keller, a nurse, in the Hyde trial, was made to her by Dr. B. C-JHyde in In dependence a few days before Col. Swopa died. She was Col- Swope's nurse.
