A Sad Sight.
The attention of the spectators in the
criminal court room yesterday was attract
ed to a man who sat inside of the railing,
beside a heart-broken and delicate looking
woman, who held a sweet looking little
girl in her lap, while another little inno
cent clung to her skirts. The man, while
eaim anu coiiecieu, presented tne appear
ance of one who had gone through weeks
and months of suspense and suffering. His
name is John M. Cline, and several months
ago, while iu a mad fit ot rage superin
duced by a too lrrc use of liquor, commit

These circumstances gave reasonable

A. V. Small, Ed. Small and Henry Evans.
The autopsy developed severe inflamma

unable to determine whether or not there
was poison in the stomach in the absence
of a chemical analysis. Of course, if there
was poison administered death resulted
from secondary effects.

mother was, but her illness was slight and
the symptoms exhibited were not the same.
Mr. Mossimann was not sick.
The case is a very mysterious one. If
poison was placed in the flour barrel by
Hamilton, it would natuarlly be supposed
that Mr. Mossimann would have received
a dose as Weill as his wife. There is
of the mystery. On the evening that Ham
ilton took supper at the Mossimann resi
dence Mr. Mossimann ate supper by him
self, as he had a business engage
ment, and was in a hurry to meet his ap
pointment. Hamilton and the rest ol the
family ate alone, and it seems probable
that the fiend improved this occasion to ao
his diabolical work.
It would appear to the casual observer
that Hamilton could have no possible mo
tive for poisoning Mrs. Mossimann, but
there is an ulterior motive which is at
once apparent when ali the facts are
known. Mossimann owns a lot and a neat
little residence on Prospect street. Ever
since Hamilton became intimate with the
family, by reason of his being a prospect
ive relative on account of his engagement
to Miss Lefler, he has endeavored to per
suade Mossimann to sell ,the property, os
tensibly for the purpose of purchasing a
more eligible site on which to build, but

A state warrant was sworn out against
them by Durst charging them

arraigned before Justice Halstead yester
day afternoon to answer to the charge.
Both pleaded not guilty and after a brief
examination Nolan was discharged. Swift
