The Furniture Ma DR. AME S TELLS IT (Continued from Page One services in the civil war, his four terns a* mayor of Minneapolis, as well as his election to the legislature of Minnesota, and stated that never until the recent alleged scandals had a word of dishonor been breathed against him. Gardner, "a confessed blackmailer Brown, who by offering testimony sought immunity from pros ecution, and Norbeck. convicted of bribery, Mr. Erwin maintained, were the only witnesses against Dr. Ames, and their word should not be relied on in preference to one who had done honor to his city and country. The action of the defense in making mental irresponsibility the principal plea is thought to be caused by the complete chain of evidence submitted by the prosecution. This Chain Was Completed yesterday by the testimony of several "women of the town" to the effect that they had paid Gardner from $13 to $25 each for what they supposed was pro tection from prosecution. Louis An derson, who ran a saloon under the rooms of Ray Harris, the woman who was fined $50 by mistake, also testified that Norbeck had given him $50 and pursuant to instructions he had given It to the woman. Dr. Ames appeared a picture of health on the stand. He admitted that he had gained twenty pounds since his return from New Hampshire, and characterized his recovery as some thing remarkable. The prosecution in the cross-exam ination recalled the doctor's flight to West Baden. Ind. Louisville. Ky., and New Hampshire. Mr. Boardman ques tioned particularly the defendant's journey alone, in inclement weather and in a feeble condition, from Ken tucky to the East: why he started hur riedly in the night time without bag gage why he stopped off at many .i.s, regiSic.iiig ai ho..eis the js of which he could not lemem and why Mrs. Ames took an en tity different route. Dr. Ames de nied t-a he ilpparted to escape the sheriff, and insisted that there was nothing unusual in the procedure. Stolen Money Recovered.
