BIBY TELLS HIS VERSION OF THE
FATAL SHOOTING OF HIS WIFE
The revolver was accidently dis
charged In a struggle botween Mrs.
Charlotte Blby and Frank Biby, the
wounds of which caused tho death of
Mrs. Biby, according to the testimony
of Frank Biby, the defondant of the
murder trial which has occupied all of
this week in division A of tho district
court.
Biby took the stand at 10 o'clock
Thursday morning and the cross ex
amination was not completed until
1:30 o’clock, no recess being taken un
til that time. Biby related to the Jury’
the happenings.
Me stated he obtained the gun from
bis father on the morning of the shoot
ing at tho request of his wife, who
feared they tfiight be held up by high
way men on their way to Colo. Springs
to get some clothes left there while on
their honeymoon a few days previous
ly. He stated that they motored to the
east side in search of a friend of his
wife's known to him as Sadie, hut not
being able to locate her. they went to
a point east of the Mitchell park where
Biby stopped the car, got out and went
to tho back of the car. and laid his gun
on the running board und startl'd to
take a drink of whisky. His wife at
tempted to persuade him not to, but
lie took tho drink and was picking up
the gun when ids wife came up from
behind and tried to gain possession of
tho gun. In the struggle for the* gun.
it was discharged, wounding Mrs.
Biby, who struck the fender of tho car
am she fell to the ground.
Biby picked her up and placed her
in the car und left her at the Trevi
thick home at 1710 Fast Second street, i
while lie went after a doctor. He
Mnte.l that ho know whero a doctor
lived a few blocks away as he had de
livered a mattress there while em
ployed by the Colorado Bedding com
pany. He could not find the doctor and
started to the business district for a
doctor, and as he was partly across the
Fourth street bridge across the Foun
tain river, he stated that his memory
failed him and ho know no more un
til Sheriff Thomas and Deputy Delli
quadrl removed hhn from the El I’aso
county Jail the next morning to bring
him back to Pueblo.
Biby stated thnt he did not fire any |
shots into tho body of his wife as she
lay on tho ground and that h-- did not
strike her and thnt they had had no .
trouble. Biby testified that ho knew
nothing of taking Edna Stark, alias
t’lark to Colorado Springs with him. or
anything that took place after crossing
th« Fourth street bridge.
When court opened Thursday after
noon. the prosecution opened rebuttal,
with Captain of Detectives Bruco and
1 ndersherlff Hilbert, both of Colorado
Springs, testifying that on the night
of the shooting, Biby stated to them
that after shooting his wife he went

to a local rooming house and secured |
a drinjg of whisky and asked Miss
Stark to go with him to Colorado
Springs to secure his wife's clothing
and when arrested asked the officials
to release Miss Stark as she had no
connection with the crlmo and that ho
was also innocent.
Miss Stark took the witness chair In
rebuttal and stated that sho knew noth
ing of the shooting, being told by Biby
that she wanted her to go along with
him to got his wife and her belongings
in Colorado Springs and when she found
that he was wanted for shooting his
wifo she hud nothing more to do with
him.
Charles Guise, father of the deceased
also took the stand -in rebuttal and stat
ed that in tho 11 months prior tb tho
shooting that Biby lived in his home,
thcro was only one tlmo when he had
to help Biby to his rpom because of
his drunken condition.
Charles J. Grundy, jailor of the
county Jail was placed on tho stand by
the prosecution in rebuttal and district
attorney asked him six questions re
garding Blby’s actions at the county
jail and after each question was asked
Judge J. 11. H. Low, for the defense
strenuously objected. Judge Trimble
sustained Low’s objections and Grundy
was permitted to leave the .stand with
out answering a single question.
J. W. Brown, turnkey of tho county
Jail followed Grundy on the stand and
lie was asked three questions similar
to those put to Grundy and the ob
jections of the defense were sustained,
and Bowen left the stand without an
swering any questions.
Almost two hours were taken up in
tho questioning and cross- examina
tion "f I >r. Philip Work, who took tho
stand for the prosecution. Work, who
is a nerve and mental disease special
ist, stated that there were two clasaea
of defects from alcohol poisoning due
to drinking, the Immediate action,
which Is acute alcoholic poisoning and
tho chronic results due to drinking a
great length of time, and classed the
effects as follows: softening of the
brain, alcoholic amnesia and instances
whero the person believes false things
about other persons and in cases
where tho afflicted person Imagines
and secs things.
Stating thnt ho had heard the test!- \
mony in the case, he was asked In
what condition Biby was in at the
time of the shooting, before and after,
and he replied he behoved Biby to have
boon sane. He further testified that
Biby was able to distinguish from
right and wrong and that there was
no amnesia existing at the time, not
ns lie understood tho term from his
exi»erlence.
The matter of alcoholic amnesia
caused much time to he taken up.
Amnesia results in the lapse of mem
ory In cases, according to evidence.
Judge Low road a paragraph from a
quotation of a noted doctor explaining
THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN
I Notice That
Walter K. Dudley, cashier, etc., of
tho Pueblo Savings and Trust company,
is wearing a more congenial smile
these days. You soo Walt is soon to
have a new desk in the new hanking
in away amnesia. It was to the effect
that, a gold miner buried a lot of
gold while drunk and suffering from
amnesia and when he became sober he
could not find It altho he searched for
it for six months, showing that there
was a lapse of memory. Judge Low
asked Dr. Work if that was right and
the doctor replied, "I can not answer
that question as I have lost things
when I was sober that I could never
find.” #
Biby sat calmly botween his lawyer
and mother. The prosecution closed at
•1:40 o’clock Thursday and a recess
was taken until 10 o’clock Friday
morning when the defense will start
rebuttal. It Is doubted whether tho case
will go to the Jury Friday if no nitfht
I session Is held. It is* also feared that
if tho case continues much longer, the
Jurors will bo locked tip on Christmas.

apartments of the company which will
be considerable of k relief since ho
hasn’t had nice, clean, comfortable
quarters sinco the flood. Tho reason Is
that tho company has been remodeling
the building and it was impossible to
keep the house clean with a bunch of
carpenters, bricklayers, plasterers, ar
chitects and filthy lucre around. The
new bank will soon be ready for the
janitor to clean up every night. There
will bo new desks, new vaults, new
chairs, new inkwells on tho counters
for the depositors to dip new pens in
to write checks or make out their de
posit slips.'
Tho whole place will be clean. The
clerks will put on clean collars and
have their shoos shined to match the
polish on tho brass chandeliers and
i Walter K. will be- as happy as a kid
with a new toy as soon as things get
; fixed up a hit.
But there is one thing Walter has
overlooked. While he is going to have
; everything nice and clean and shining,
i he ought to have nice bright new ap
pearing money to give out to.his cus
tomera. Wouldn’t it bo wise to put in
