Trial of Mrs. Waikup, Charged With Poisoning Hor Husband. A Jury ol Old Residents Testimony In troduced by the State to Prove the Purchase ot I'blson .V Ficbt of Legal Glantsi Emporia, Kan., October 20. The trial of Mrs. Minnie Wallace Walkup, for the alleged poisoning of her husband August 24, was taken up in the District Court yes terday. Both the State nnd defense Sigiil; tied their readiness for trial and Judge Graves ordered the defendant brought luto court. Mrs. Walkup came in, accompanied by Sheriff Wilhltc and Miss Mary Jay, a Uaughter of Hoil William Jay, her guard ian. She appeared as composed as if she had no connection with the case whatever, and shook hands witli her counsel and other acquaintances near her beforo taking her Beat. The court at once proceeded to call the special venire of 0110 hundred and twenty-five jurors which was issued last week, and their examination was com menced by the sttorneys. Twelve satisfac tory jurors were obtained when only forty four had been called. Their names are as follows: J. 0. Cooley, farmer, 00 years old; Charles J. Johnson, Swede, farmer, 49 years old, naturalized; O. C. Cassler, fann er, 40 years out; J. K. retcrnian, 53 years old; 11. C. Adams, fanner, 58 years old; 11. T. Holmes, farmer, 47 years old; J. i.

County Attorney Felghan, on behalf of the State, explained lo tha jury the theory of poisoning alleged against the defendant. Ho related substantially tlio circumstances of the marriage, tho sickness of Mr. Walk up and the purchase of poison by Mrs. Walkup. He stated that the State charged that Mrs. Walkup married her husband with the intention of poisoning him so as (o se cure the widow's portion of tho estate; that she procured poison in New Orleans and Cincinnati for that purpose; that she ad ministered the poison which caused his death, and that if the State proved this theory it would expect the Jury to find a verdict of guilty; if it failed to prove this theory the jury would justly acquit the de fendant. At the conclusion of Colonel Feiglian's address counsel for the defendant moved to dismiss the complaint as without (ide(tial foundation, as shown by the ln formation which had been detailed lo the jury. The motion was overruled. The first witness examined was Ehenezer Baldwin, of Lawrence. Ho testified fo acquaintance witli Mr. Walkup; that the latter was a large, powerfully built man, over six feet high, broad shouldered and of cheerful disposition. He and Mr. Walkup went to the New Orleans Exposition last December and lodged nt Mrs. Wallace's house and became acquainted with the family, including the defendant. Cross-examined by Mr. Scott, who asked witness as to the state of the health of Walkup at the time of tho journey to New Orleans. Tho State objected, and the ob tectlon was sustained. Other witnesses examined up to noon were Eunice Hiu tlctt, A. G. Laken, Maggio Evans, Johnnie Samuels, employes ot George W. Newman & Co., dry goods store, relative to the purchase of goods by Mrs. Wulkup, and also Mr. Newman himself on the same subject Tho defense objected to the line of evidence as Immaterial and irrelevant. Tho objection was overruled and the exception noted. Miss Lizzie Wnlkup, dnnchter of J. 1!.
