OSE AGAINST CIISIMG STATE BEGINS THE PRESENTATION OF ITS EVIDENCE OF OH. MOND MIRDER WIDOW ON WITNESS STAND Al>l.- to Identify the Clothing- Found on the Body as That Belonging to to Her llusltund Case Devoid of Sensations Ex- Vice Presideut Mi-\n Opposed lo> the Policy of Expansion MlnneapoHs News. ■GLOBE S MINNEAPOLIS OFFICE 20 WASHINGTON AY. SOUTH. MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 26.— The Btate devoted today to ;i:>- presentation of its case against A. B. dishing, charged with the murder of i>r. O- : ty Attorney Reed outlined his ease a:.d nine witnesses were examined. Bm little cf a sensational nature was de veloped. 1 :rr>- was talk of a business card I baee where the bedy was • .1. but evidence regarding It was ruled out en the ground that It was not -hat it had been connected with the defendant. Tlie Interest of the day centered largely ln thi appearance on the stand of Mrs. Ormond, t:ie murdered man. During the time 3_h was giving her testimony Mrs. Or m.-u.l fa luted away once, but s_on recovered and tha examination continued. The most ir. ['■ rial rtton of Mrs. Ormond's testimony wh.: :_•_• identification of the clothing of her husband, and her reasons for believing it to ' rhai was found at the Helmuth firm. The lirst witness was \V. E. Stoopes, deputy count- surveyor, who identified certain maps and plats uttered for use during the trial. He war! followed by Milton Helmuth, the man upon whose- fa-m the body was found. Ho •related the circumstances of the finding of the remains and their disposition. His story 'is already familiar and departed from the original version only in one particular. He testified that the clolhing was covered with dust, which he believed was from manure. This immediately developed as an essential point, as the theory. of the state is that tha body was removed to Helmuth's farm con cealed in a wagon loaded with stable refuse. Heluiuth's evidence occupied the greater part of the morning session. In the afternoon the witness was on the stand for cross-ex amination, and. beyond the fact that the wit- M_B said he would not swear positively that manure dust was on the clothing, there was no point made. William Strobick, another farmer living in the vicinity, and Officer Oscar Hicks, who as sisted in exhuming the body, offered evidence that was confirmatory in its nature and not sensational. Four other witnesses were examined, but >rr. the evidence of Dr. R. J. Hill, who I ar the autopsy, their testimony de veloped little that was essential, and Dr. Hill's evidence was largely technical. The cas. will be continued ln the morning. IS AGAINST EXPANSION. Once Vice President Stevenson Ex presses His Views. MINNEAPOLIS. Jan. 26.— Ex-Vice President Adiai E.

ALGER TESTIFIES DECLARES HE HAD NO PERSON AL INTEREST IS THE AWARDING OF ARMY CONTRACTS HEARD OF "EMBALMED" BEEF Referred to a Letter Received From Gen. Miles, Asking 'Mint No> More of It Re Sent to Porto Rleo— Some Delicate Questions That tbe Sec retary Wan Excused From An swering- Camp Abuses. "WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.— Secretary Alger, in response to an invitatioH of the war investigating commission, ap peared before that body today. The secretary was .'.worn by Gen.- Wilson, after which Gov. Beaver, after asking permission to use the title "general" Instead of "Mr. Secretary," began the examination of the head of the war de partment. Secretary Alger, in beginning, stated that he had been on duty at the war department constantly during and aft •er the war with Spain. The chiefs of bureaus in the department, he said, were generally appointed to such places because of seniority, but the president, if he thought proper, could break this rule. When asked in regard to the expen ditures by the department of the war fund, the secretary replied that the larger part had been devoted to strengthening coast defenses. In an ticipation of such an inquiry, he had brought with him memoranda prepared by chiefs of bureaus giving details of the expenditure of this fund. The secretary went on to state that he had never had any personal interest in the expenditure of government funds, directly or indirectly. No con tracts for equipment were entered into prior to the declaration of war. "Have you received any complaint from the major general of the army while at Porto Rico as to the quality of refrigerated and canned roast beef fur nished the army?" The secretary referred to his annual report quoting a dispatch from Gen. Miles asking that no more beef be sent because they could get a large supply there. Gen. Miles had said something about beef that had spoiled there. DELICATE QUESTION. Gov. Beaver asked whether actual preparation for war was not made be fore the declaration of war, because it was thought it would be averted. No reply, however, was expected if the question was not deemed by the sec retary a proper one. The witness replied that there had been hopes that war would .be averted. The chiefs of the several bureaus of the department had never assembled to hold a council of war. They had been too busy. In regard to the inspector general's offlce the department did not consider that the bureau had been practically abolished by the transfer of officers to other duty. He believed that it retained its efficiency. Secretary Alger next told of the in spection of camps, especially the tour of inspection by Gen. Miles. He (Al ger) never had received any official complaint from the armies in the field in regard to fresh or canned meat fur nished the troops. "Have you any information that meat was chemically treated?" "Nothing but what has been brought out by this commission." Beef, he went on, has been used as an army ration for many years, and its use was not an experiment in the Span ish war. No complaints had been re ceived by him from the camps in re gard to beef. NO PERSONAL, GAIN. When asked whether he was per sonally interested In contracts for fur nishing meat, the secretary said with positiveness: "I have not; I never had, directly or indirectly, interest in any property, in anything supplied to this government." He had never received an official re port that beef furnished the army had caused sickness. He had received re ports from several sources, that at Chickamauga and Camp Thomas there had been a lack of medicines and sup plies. The reports were investigated and supplies ordered at once. He had never received a report from the sur geon general that he was unable to furnish supplies. In regard to the arrival of the Fifth corps at Montauk he said that every possible precaution had been taken to make the camp healthful and comfort able. There had been many deficiences that it was impossible to remedy but everything that could be done' was done. This closed the examination and Sec retary Alger was asked whether he wished to volunteer any statements, but he declined to do so. GEN. EAGAN DRAMATIC. Defends Hl» Assault on Gen. Mllea on tbe Ground of Provocation. WASHINGTON. Jan. 26.-The feature of the proceedings before the Eagan court mar tial today was the testimony, dramatic In many parta in its quiet intensity, of Commis sary General Eagan himself. Not more than fifteen or twenty people outside of the court and a dozen or so newspaper correspond en t3 were admitted to the trial rooms. Several witnesses preceded the chief figure In tte trial. Gen. Eagan listened intently to the testi mony of these witnesses and occasionally held brief whispered conferences with hie coun sel. He was dressed in full uniform, withou' sword, and his florid face, white hair and mustache, and soldiery bearing, recalled to many the late Gen. Sheridan, to whom he -bears a distinct rasemblanc-e. His call to the stand this morning was something of a surprise, as it had been thought if he tes'i fied at all It would be later. When his name was called he rose and itand.ng before the witness chair, raised his right hand, took the oath administered by the judge advocate, and at first related his army career. As he proceeded in his testi mony it berame apparent that the line of de fense would be justification and extreme provocation, finally bringing on a serious nervous condition which rendered the witness unfit for business, and made him to a de gree irresponsible for his acts. Tha presi dent's order of immunity, it was also made evident, would be relied on as applicable to Gen. Eagan's testimony before the war com mission, and that, therefore, the court mar tial had no proper jurisdiction of the case. When Gen. Eagan began the story of Gen. Miles' aspersions on him he raised his voice somewhat, and spoke with great earnestness, though with perfect enunciation. In speak ing of the criticisms of the newspapers, which he said had been called forth by Gen. Miles' testimony, his manner was intensely dramatic and Impressive. His eyes filled with tears, and his voice trembled, and tho impression he left with many waa decidedly favorable. After the court adjourned members shook his hand and ln a friendly way asked of his health. LOCAL WAIFS FROM WASHINGTON. .
